Carnal Hunger

by Tawny Taylor

Book 2 in the Twilight’s Possession series.

Jasmyne Vaughn’s search for her drug-addicted mother—and the package she stole —was a nightmare in more ways than one. Jasmyn’s plans had not included being kidnapped by two powerful vampires driven by the Hunger and the primal, carnal need to sate the blood-bond between themselves and a mortal woman.

Sons of the Twilight Asher and Draven have their own problems. Asher is desperate to reclaim what’s been taken from him. And Draven has learned his conflicting loyalties are going to cost a number of people a dear price. But the desperate effects of the Hunger have driven them both to near death—until Jasmyne completes their bond. Propelled by honor, duty and love, the three spend their nights searching for Jasmyne’s mother and the ancient Greek relic she’s stolen. And days sating their unrelenting carnal need for each other.
Two men, one woman—and a driving sexual hunger that none can resist—in a race against time to save the innocent…or destroy themselves.

Reader Advisory: While Carnal Hunger can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel, readers may enjoy it more having read the earlier story.
Book contains some scenes of male-male sex.

There were actually two books I was looking for.

Dark Master by Tawny Taylor

Aphrodisia (Kensington books)

its no longer on its website to purchase but you can get it on Amazon of course.  I have it on Kindle and I love this story. Its not your run of the mill love story. I like it because its naughty and sexy on a primeval level. It satisfies my need to have that “me Tarzan-you Jane” feel.  Then again I am sick and twisted enough to try all that D/s.  At least just once.

SURRENDERING COMPLETELY ALWAYS LEADS TO…

Completely broke, Regan Roslund is stuck selling bondage gear to a kinky clientele in order to pay her bills. She has no interest in her salacious merchandise until she feels a leather choker tight against her neck–and gets a glimpse of the muscular, model-gorgeous man who holds her captive. Suddenly, temptation ignites…

THE MOST INTENSE PLEASURE…

Newly crowned king of the undead, Shadow Sorenson knows he can protect himself by taking a wife. He hopes Regan, with her new-found curiosity, will be unable to resist obeying even his most deviant demand. But Shadow would prefer she surrender willingly. For thirty nights, he’ll show Regan what it’s like to lose control as he explores every inch of her naked flesh, leaving her hungry for release–and moaning in anticipation of an ecstasy she never knew existed…

Warning! This is a REALLY HOT book (Sexually Explicit)

The Howl and the Pussycat
by Ann Cory
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Paranormal erotic romance

Her day couldn’t get any worse—until the wolf shows up.

Jacquelyn’s sexy little Red Riding Hood outfit was supposed to rekindle her boyfriend’s flagging interest. Instead she’s red in the face and dumped for another woman. To add to the indignity, she finds herself pursued into the woods by a wolf.

Somehow she manages to escape, only to end up with two new pains—a twisted ankle, and a sexy rescuer who claims he’s been searching for her all his life.

After several decades of searching, Baldric is surprised that his destined mate is a provocative human woman with a catty attitude. Hardly a perfect match for a werewolf, but there can be no other partner for him. To seduce the woman he’s hungered for all his life, he’ll have to convince her hardened heart that he’s capable of love. And do it without scaring her off with the truth—that underneath his hard body beats the loyal heart of a wolf.

An excerpt from

The Howl and the Pussycat

Copyright © 2008 Ann Cory

All rights reserved — a Samhain Publishing, Ltd. publication

“Don’t be mad. Nothing may come of this and then we can just pick up where we left off. Absence is supposed to make the heart grow fonder and such.”

Her stomach churned. “Oh shut up. The absence is going to make me even more ready to be with someone else. You had your shot. Sorry I wasted three years on your ass.”

She clicked the phone off and slammed it shut, uninterested in anything else he had to say. Glancing into the rearview mirror, she took a good look at her reflection. Pathetic. All dressed up and nowhere to go. If she went to the party alone, it would be obvious what had happened. She’d spend the entire night catching glimpses of Sophie in Ted’s arms whispering naughty little words into his ear. The office would be buzzing with gossip in the morning. A great day to call in sick. Maybe even for the entire week. She wanted to hit something, strangle someone and scream obscenities all at once. Men.

Even more upsetting than Ted were the tears starting up. She hated to cry or admit defeat. Weakness sucked and so did getting dumped. Had he seen her dressed up like sin in heels, he never would have chosen Sophie. The whole idea of her costume was to get him to realize what a great thing he had with her. Brilliant plan gone wrong.

Jacquelyn wiped at her eyes, careful to not smear any mascara, and blindly tossed her cell phone to the backseat.

She froze.

Was that a growl? She was about to turn and look behind her when a car pulled into the next space over, distracting her. A man in a dark blue jacket got out and ran toward the costume shop. For a split second she considered returning Ted’s wolf outfit, but the humiliation of explaining the situation to Cassidy quickly helped make her decision. Instead, she backed out of the parking space and pulled out onto the street. It would be a long, miserable drive back. She couldn’t believe how cold Ted had been. All the times she’d put up with his selfish ways and this was her thanks.

Not even ten minutes on the road, a light drizzle started that instantly turned into a heavy downpour, making it near impossible to see.

“Oh you’ve got to be kidding me,” she muttered aloud.

Before Jacquelyn had a chance to start up a solo tirade complete with f-bombs, she heard the same low growl she thought she’d heard before come from the backseat. She straightened and tried to catch a peek in the rearview mirror, a difficult task with the rain pounding the windshield. The blood rushed out of her face the moment she caught movement in the mirror. Or so she thought.

“What the hell?”

Jacquelyn went to take a second look when the car hydroplaned. Knuckles tense, she gripped the wheel and rode it out, doing her best to keep the car steady. Judging by the unfamiliar signs she passed, she realized her exit had come and gone. Shivers crept up her back as she heard something rustle around behind her. Not willing to risk getting in an accident, she veered off at the next exit and turned onto a gravel road. She followed it just long enough until she came to a patch of trees. God she hoped it wasn’t some rabid raccoon or stray dog. Before she panicked, she decided to take a look.

“It’s just your imagination. You’re fine. There’s nothing back there,” she reasoned aloud. With the car in park, she counted to five and turned around, coming face to face with a large gray wolf.

Jacquelyn screamed and bolted from the car. The rain pelted her skin and soaked her cape, making it twice as heavy. She looked back once and noticed the animal bound from the car and come after her. It let out a howl that reduced her to half-screams, half-whimpers. Why the hell did she pick to run toward the trees? She should have run toward the road and flagged down a driver, though dressed in her outfit she worried who would stop for her.

With only the newly risen moon to see by, she found herself running through a forest that stretched for miles. Old crippled trees surrounded her, looking like they would reach down and swoop her up into their gnarled clutches, a thought she quickly shook from her mind.

“I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die,” she chanted to herself, trying to ignore her screaming calves and ankles. Not only was it murder to run in high heels, but her stockings scratched against her inner thighs. Talk about chaffing.

She looked back again and saw the wolf still hot on her trail. God, why was it chasing her? Dumped, desperate and now some wild thing’s prey. Her heart nearly beat right out of her chest, thundering loudly as she ran. How had it gotten inside her car in the first place? Did it crawl in when she first went into the costume shop? Someone’s cruel joke at her expense? Damn Ted. It was all his fault…somehow…in a way that didn’t make any sense, but made her feel better to think.

As she made it to a clearing in the woods, the rain let up, becoming a light mist. Just in time too, as up ahead she spotted a small cabin. Maybe her luck had changed? She tried to forget about all the scary movies she’d watched where a young woman runs into what looks like a deserted house, only to become dinner and a show for a band of nasty little men. Though, the other alternative, her limbs being torn apart by fangs and devoured, left much to be desired. One way or another she was screwed. And here she’d planned the night to be screwed for pleasure, not pain.

Jacquelyn fought the pain in her calves and ran toward the cabin like a madwoman, jarring her ankle hard in the process. Nothing, not even the grueling pain, would make her stop until she made it safely inside.

At the door, she stopped a moment to catch her breath and tried to peek in through the window. No lights were on. Should she knock? Waking an angry old man might not be a good idea. Out of good manners or stupidity, she didn’t know which, she knocked. A branch snapped behind her followed by another eerie howl. The sound vibrated and made her queasy. She didn’t dare look back.

As her hand closed around the doorknob, something grabbed her from behind. She heard herself scream, high pitched and blood curdling. Her knees buckled. Instead of falling to the ground, she felt herself being picked up and propelled over something curiously solid. Whoever or whatever it was couldn’t be good. Finally, the delicious black shrouded her vision, and she let it take her.

Then, she meets Rajah, an incubus who touches her heart and intoxicates her senses. Rajah shares the same bleak fate as she, and yearns just as desperately for freedom. But the only way for Jade to break her bonds is to betray Rajah—and doom the only man she’s ever loved to a lifetime in hell.

Review: Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan

Dark Slayer: A Carpathian Novel

by Christine Feehan

ISBN: 9780425229736

Truthfully I was disappointed with the last two releases of Christine Feehan’s, the Burning Wild and Hidden Current.  I wasn’t impressed to say the least.  I was beginning to think that this was going to be the trend, so I started Dark Slayer with trepidation.  However, I was surprised, pleasantly so.  It seemed her old formula that endeared me to her originally was again at work, along with a twist of more world building.

We are introduced to Ivory Malinov and Razvan, who is detested and feared by all Carpathians as their enemy.  Ivory is the Dark Slayer, the long thought dead sister of the Malinov Brothers has lived alone for centuries with just her wolves, fighting the vampires and trusting no one, not even the Carpathian’s.  Razvan, over the course of several previous books, has been a thread woven through-out with his attempts to inflict evil and death to the Carpathians.  Ivory finds Razvan, in the snow awaiting the sun and to put an end to his life of imprisonment by Xavier, she recognizes him as her lifemate and takes him to her lair.

Ivory and Razvan’s story starts with Ivory caring for Razvan, who has been kept starved for blood most of his life so that Xavier could control him.  Razvan, a Dragonseeker, is brought to up to his fullest potential. As it unfolds, they both share their past lives of pain, distrust and betrayal and learning to trust and care for each other.  With her previous mage studies under Xavier and Razvan’s centuries of being controlled by Xavier, they unite their knowledge and powers to fight and destroy their common enemy, Xavier.

Along the way, they have run ins with the Carpathians society, where they develop a surprising allegiance and battle more than a little distrust.  Ivory, who is one of the oldest female Carpathians, is powerful and share’s her knowledge of Xavier’s spells and her abilities to unravel them adding a much needed security especially to the women.

Learning the back story of Ivory and Razvan has added a wonderful dimension to the Carpathian world.  I really liked Ivory’s Wolf Pack, it was unexpected to say the least and their integration of Razvan was cool.  We also got glimpses of most of old favorites, such as Skylar, Savannah, Gary and many more.  With the introductions of more male vampires, the Malinov Brothers to carry on the threat of Xavier’s evil and the Aunts, I am hoping the books are on a new curve, a development without rehashing the same old stuff.  I’d like and hope to see the continued world building of the Carpathian Society as she has shown in this book.  All in all, I’m glad that I had picked up the books as I feel there was redemption from the previous writings.

Caterer India Singer is getting her life on track, hoping to make it big with her new company. She doesn’t need any distractions…especially a younger man. She won’t get involved with another man destined to leave her. But security expert Wade Thompson won’t take no for an answer.

Wade knows exactly what he wants and just how to get it. He’s pulling out the stops because he’s sure India’s the woman for him and his best friend and business partner, Marc Jasper. Marc isn’t too sure and tries to keep India at arm’s length.

When a threat to India has her in constant contact with Marc, the lure of the curvy older woman is too much to ignore. But when both men raise the stakes and ask for more than just a fling, will India play it safe to protect her heart, or will she take another chance on love?

See Conquering India Book Trailer

Conquering India is a steamy sensual story with believable characters and a heart warming tale of love between three. Ménage fans will cheer for the timid but sassy more mature heroine India. She’s been burned by her ex but is strong willed and hard working with a shy loveable innocence. The duo of young hunky ex-Marine heroes; Wade an impulsive fun-loving flirt, and Marc a brooding and cautiously sensitive heartbroken man, fall for the lovely upstart caterer.

Each of the three main characters brings a much needed element to the fantasy of forever love with three. The love scenes are fantastically erotic and tender at the same time. A great read you will have a hard time putting down.

Negotiations

Stuck in Barstow with car trouble is not the place to be on a carefree weekend. Greg begins to care a bit more after meeting his mechanic, Lindsay.  Just enough axle grease and a sweet ride of her own, to show off; Greg’s weekend turns out to be more than he bargained for. And there is more bargaining to do.

I have to admit that I am not a gear head. I don’t know a camshaft from a transmission.  I do however know how to call a tow truck, an auto shop and get a good deal. But this guy makes me look bad. Not only did he get great sex with a super hot woman; he also got his car fixed, all in one evening. That is freaking awesome.

Now there were a few things that I didn’t like, because I didn’t understand it all, car talk. I had to look up the car and get a good idea of what I was imagining. But once I did I could see the beauty in it. Though I think I t would be hard for the average reader to. This being the age of instant gratification, they are not going to be curious and look it up.

I do hope she writes more of the adventures of Greg. He really seems like the kind of guy that just likes to have fun. But maybe with a companion or best friend to make it really interesting. *wink wink* *nudge nudge*

Excerpt

“Lindsay looked vaguely surprised for a moment, but then she smiled, slow and knowing. And then, very deliberately, her gaze dropped, settling in somewhere south of Greg’s belly button. Her eyebrows hitched up, and she parted her lips. “Depends on how fast you want it done.” Greg swallowed. Whoa. Did she mean what he thought she meant? She couldn’t, she wouldn’t, and yet…

“Sometimes it’s better if these things are done slow and right,” he said.
Lindsay’s grin widened. “I agree totally. Step on into my office, and we can work up some figures.”

Hot Honolulu bachelor Jack Sloane has finally fallen in love. Problem is, he can’t find his woman–a mysterious beauty who showed up after-hours at his Waikiki office is nowhere to be found. Worse, she doesn’t seem interested in a repeat of the erotic night they spent together. The one person who can help him find his heart’s desire is his frumpy secretary.

Dowdy office wallflower Keely St. John has no intention of fanning her gorgeous boss’s flame. It’s bad enough she’s spent the last three months fantasizing about him. To make things even more complicated, her “sister” spent one lusty night with the island tycoon! When Jack finds out Keely’s secret, she could lose more than just her job and a Boss With Benefits.

OK I’ll admit that I don’t usually review erotica for Rayna. I know she enjoys it far too much; however, the title of this book jumped out at me so I just had to have a read.  What made it even more interesting is that I read it at work in my downtime.  I would seriously recommend doing this because you can really “get into the scenes”.  Pity I’m married and don’t have a gorgeous boss or I just might have been tempted.  Add to the fact its summer here right now and the setting of the book is in Hawaii so again there was another reason why I found the book to be more realistic than far fetched.

Ms Black uses vivid details and teasing hints to move the story along instead of jumping straight into the sex scenes which is a great change. But when the sex scenes appear, wow, Wow, WOW! I really enjoyed the fact there was a story line with a plot with a beginning, middle and end rather than the all to common page after page of sex in all various positions that I have read in other erotica.   The characters are believable even though I will admit to rolling my eyes in the beginning.  That was my issue not the books lol.  I was really impressed by how much detail about Hawaii was dropped in throughout the read without breaking the flow of the story or seeming to be filler

Ms Black, anytime you want to send you work over to us to review, I’d be more than happy to volunteer.

Review: Pure Sin by Rynne Raines

Pure Sin

By Rynne Raines

The Wild Rose Press

Whips. Blindfolds. Restraints. And a man rumored to be the most skilled Dom in the city…

As the BDSM instructor at the hottest fetish club in Los Angeles, Bianca Alexander prides herself on being open, honest, and informative with her clientele when it comes to kink. The fact that she hasn’t knelt before a master of her own in four long years doesn’t affect her ability to teach, though a part of her longs to be back in her Dom’s arms. But when her boss hires Cade Sinclair–her primary rival from a competing club–to assist teaching her classes, Bianca’s comfortable solo act becomes a sinful duet drenched in Pure Sin.

I read this book in one sitting. It was like a digital chocolate coated wet dream for the kink in me. The only part I didn’t like about the book is the mysterious event that cemented her decision about Cade the first time they were together. I really would have liked more information on that. It seemed like that was a good bit of juicy gossip.

The great part about this story is was all about the nookie…well no that is a lie. I was all about Cade and Bianca trying to get back together all the while lots of NOOKIE. And what great sex it was. Rynne can most definitely write some hot scenes that are part of the story not the entire thing. I liked this read it. A lot.
