Chains of Frost by T A Grey

Chains of Frost

(Book 1 The Bellum Sisters Series)

By T.  A. Grey

I loved the sisters!  They each have a very distinctive personality, which in my mind plays a big part in why their father decrees them to certain men to have as their Protectors.  It was as if each man was exactly what the sisters would need to appreciate their personalities and yet at the same time, be strong enough to protect them for the rest of their lives.

Chloe's story starts in this book.  We learn about all of the sisters and get clear glimpses in to each of their paths, but in this first book, Chloe, the eldest, is the focus.  When the three sit and chant a spell to keep them from forced 'marriages', they bring forth a deadly demon unlike anything they've yet to know.  Chloe's demon chases her around until she is in the safety of the Death Castle.  I was so glad when that was resolved, but at the end, I freaked a little for poor Willow (can't give you any spoilers)!

I loved the paranormal element of this erotic romance.  And, the sex was HOT.  I felt SO bad for Chloe, sprawling on the floor BEGGING for sexual release.  I would be embarrassed as all heck.  But, of course, as a succubus, she doesn't worry over such a  human trait.  With the premise being women driven to have sex to survive, you have to know this series is going to be sexy and hot as hell.

By the end, I loved Tyrian and Chloe.  Perfect match, of course.  I enjoyed the glimpses into Willow's interludes with the Alpha Shapeshifter and it hooked me in. Can't wait to get  my hands on Bonds of Fire next!! 

Three Fates. Three Sisters.

When a will from her dead father decrees Chloe into the protection of the renowned vampire commander, Tyrian en Kulev, she does what any woman would do--and casts a spell. Things get worse for Chloe when the spell she and her sisters perform summons an ancient demon from deep within the earth. Now she's being hunted by a demon set on killing her and must live at the aptly named Castle Death with the king of cold, Tyrian. Surprisingly, Chloe finds that she doesn't mind her new Protector so much. His cold, impassionate nature needs a firm push to show his true colors, and Chloe thinks she's just the one to do it.

Tyrian en Kulev always pays his debts. When Francis Bellum dies and orders Tyrian to act as his eldest daughter's Protector, Tyrian resigns himself to the position. What should have been a simple deal--keep her in the castle, protect her--has turned difficult. Chloe comes to him with a demon trying to kill her and a sexy attitude that keeps invading his thoughts everywhere he goes. The little succubus easily grabs hold of the heart he'd kept locked away for so long and makes him feel once again. But can they defeat the demon that haunts her and can Tyrian overcome his past and move on to a new future with Chloe?

Chains of Frost is an 85,000 word novel.
*synopsis via*

“Honestly, who upholds any of that old school stuff anyway? No one. My Papa didn’t even pay into the whole patriarchal thing. Seriously, we were raised to be independent and taught not to rely on a man. That fact that he’s… he’s given me to you is ridiculous and completely wrong for him. Just let me go and we’ll call it even. Your debt paid.”

“I can’t do that, Ms. Bellum. I will not dishonor your father and the vow I made to repay my debt to him. You will stay here, under my protection.”
Panting, Chloe arched her back off the bed as a blinding energy pulsed inside her. Pants turned into a long, drawn-out moan, and liquid heat pooled between her legs, as her breasts pulled tight and heavy.

She was drugged or had food poisoning. Something was wrong. She moaned as her stomach jerked and another wave of wet release pulsed through her core. What kind of food poisoning did this? No, no, impossible. It wasn’t time yet. She had another day.

Shakily she came to her feet, wobbling so hard she grabbed onto the corner of the bedpost to keep from falling. The wood was hard beneath her hands, solid and thick. She pushed her chest into it, reveling in the hard strength of it, then she rubbed her lips across the wood.

“Oh, my God!” Jerking away from the all-too-sexy post, she wobbled over to the dresser to pull her clothes back on. Oh, God! Each step swished her sex’s lips back and forth, bringing forth a surging need deep within her.

With nothing to lose, she darted barefoot across the floor and flung open the study door. Four sets of eyes trained on her, then peered over the single baggy shirt she wore. There was no time for embarrassment. She started toward them, but couldn’t make it. The trip down the hallway, the stairs, and the short sprint here was all too much. Obviously, she was a superhero, because how she managed that with the rampant heat threatening to erupt inside her at any second was simply amazing.

She locked her knees to keep from falling to the ground. She had a feeling she knew what her body would do once she hit the ground. Spread her legs wide and offer herself to any— and all— the warriors watching her. The only thought that barely kept her from doing just that, was the fact she wasn’t wearing panties.

“Please,” she said, her voice a wretched moan.

Tyrian looked over at her with little interest.

Alone with the Pastor By Bella Vaughan

Alone with the Pastor

(Pleasures of Sin)

By Bella Vaughan

Bethany is a nineteen year old living with her strict parents.  More so her mother than father.  Under the illusions that sexual pleasures are forbidden and sinful, Bethany gets caught by her mother, indulging herself.  To heal her daughter of this sinful behavior, Bethany's mother takes her to their single, attractive Pastor.  His methods for healing her are not exactly what Bethany expects and if her mother found out, she'd be mortified.  The young pastor works with her to overcome temptations.  Bethany soon experiences far more in his counsel than she ever imagined.

It is a good short story, tapping in to the angst of being a young woman under the strict rule of a parent.  The content is hot and the pace is fairly quick.  For readers that don't realize it, pastors are not bound to a vow of celibacy, unlike priests.  This story is similar to those of headmasters, teachers or other persons of authority being in a position to indulge in their sexual fantasies.  If you like such story lines, you will enjoy Ms. Vaughn's Alone with the Pastor.

A note to readers:  There is a cliffhanger of sorts when Bethany's best friend seeks the Pastor for her own 'counseling.'

Bethany has a dirty secret. Her pious and God-fearing mother found a dirty magazine in her bedroom.

Worse, she caught Bethany masturbating under the covers. Even worse, she told the new pastor. Pastor Blaine.

Now Bethany has to attend a counseling session with the handsome 30 year-old, could it get any worse? It could, but just maybe it could get a lot better, especially if the Pastor has his own problems with temptation...

Bella Vaughan, in her breakout story "Alone with the Pastor", part one of Pleasures of Sin series, will take you on a sensual and erotic journey that you will not forget in a hurry.

Warning: This 10,000 word erotic story contains hot scenes of reluctant fingering, deflowering, taboo sex, masturbation, oral sex, and virgin sex and is intended for adults only! All characters are age over 18.


The touch of the Pastor's hands upon her began to affect the nineteen year-old more now and she could feel herself becoming moist. She could not help it, his fingers left a line of fire wherever they ran over her soft skin, and by the time they made their way back to the swell of her bosom she was hoping they would linger there.  They did. For just a moment, before she felt the fingers grasp the top of each of the bra cups and pull them down, revealing her erect nipples.

Reflexively, Bethany opened her eyes and covered herself with her hands.
"Yes?" she whispered.
"I know this seems strange, but I need you to be adult about this, put your hands down please."
She shook her head. It just didn't seem right.
"Bethany, do I have to call your mother in here and tell her how long this has been going on? How long you've been thinking about boys and touching yourself like a harlot?"
"No please don't!"
"Fine, then you must do as I ask, I promise it won't hurt." With that he grasped her hands gently and forced them down to her sides, once again revealing her soft breasts..."

A Death Displaced by Andrew Butcher

A Death Displaced

by Andrew Butcher

Grab it here:


I find that too often I don't read many suspenseful thrillers, but when I do, I just can NOT put them down. Mr. Butcher does a wonderful job of vividly describing characters, settings; you can smell the scents, envision the sights, feel the essence of everything he describes.

With just the right balance, we go back and forth between more than one person's life. We see them intertwine and with the perfect amount of revelation, one sits on the edge of what is to happen next. I truly want to see Nick (Nicholas) and Juliet come together, as I am a romantic at heart, but with all that has happened, who is to say that will come about? Mr. Butcher obviously has a clear path laid out for all of the characters and I have enjoyed every page so far.

My only regret with this book, as has happened to me before, is it is part of a series! LOL Meaning I need to get the next book as soon as possible. I loved the back story and am inclined to look further in to some of the history that was mentioned. Even though it is fictional, as mentioned in the beginning of the book, it feels real!

Wonderful read for those who enjoy suspense & thrillers as well as those with curiosity of witchcraft, Wiccan or Pagan practices. I've done enough reading over the years to be able to follow along easily. Awesome job! Looking forward to book #2!!!

A woman fated to die. A vision that could save her ...

A Death Displaced:

When Nick has a disturbing daydream of a woman's death, he tries to ignore it, returning to his life of broken relationships and a traumatic past that hangs over him. But when events mimic the daydream, he realises it was a vision of the future. To save a life, he must act fast.

Fated to die, Juliet is saved by a stranger. But not without consequences; she becomes displaced in this world, giving her an unexpected ability. All she wants is to return to her day-to-day routine, successfully running her own business, but it turns out life's not as predictable as she'd once thought.

Set on an island with a dark past of its own, Nick and Juliet must work together, using their newfound abilities to unravel a mystery more connected to Nick than he could ever have imagined.
Readers "can't wait" for the next in the series ...

Carmen's New York Escape by Nikki Sex

Carmen's New York Escape

by Nikki Sex

(book two)

**WARNING:  Explicit Material For Audiences 18+**

My Review:

Carmen's New York  Escape is book two in a three book set (which can be purchased as a trilogy/box set with the link below).  If you haven't already, read my review for book one, Carmen's New York Climax HERE.  With all that being said, let's move on to the scoop for book two.

At the end of book one, Carmen went from being completely ecstatic over the connection she had with Kurt (aka "Thor, god of thunderous orgasms") to realizing that he had been expecting someone else in his hotel room that day and of course, as she has done much of her life, she runs.

Book two starts off with Kurt completely lost as to what really is going on with Carmen.  He finds a woman that is so compatible to him on so many levels, not just physically, and in the blink of an eye she is gone.  Kurt uses what resources he has (including his mentor Andre Chevalier) to find Carmen.  Meanwhile, Carmen is on the run.

As we learn about Carmen's history and why she fears her ex, we step in to a very dark and disturbed world.  Many reviewers have commented on how difficult this part of the story was for them to read.  The truth is, it is deeply disturbing.  Another truth is that BDSM isn't just about sex, it is about mental and spiritual connection between a Dom and sub; complete trust, honesty and understanding.  When we learn better about Carmen's past, we understand better about the difference between depravity and a beautiful, consensual D/s relationship.  Carmen's ex was simply SICK.  Robert, (the ex), in my opinion borders on a psychopath's level of control and manipulation.   

Kurt is pretty much Robert's polar opposite and Carmen knows she is safe in his arms, under his control.  But, it's not just Kurt and Robert looking for her.  It's also the DEA.  And possibly the Mexican Mafia. She fears that if anyone finds her, she will end up back in a cage, hidden in Robert's basement, chained and used for his greedy desires.  Carmen is clever and realizes someone's following her.  Despite her urge to run, she reaches out to Kurt to accept the help he offers.  If anyone can help her, it has to be him.

By the end of book two, Carmen and Kurt are once again wrapped in each other's arms.  There are still many things that Kurt does not know, but Carmen is his and he is willing to help her, protect her and keep her in his life.  Book three, Carmen's New York Love will wrap up the story and tie up all the loose ends.  I look forward to a HEA for Carmen.  Ms. Sex has created a powerful, emotional story that is hot and steamy.

Please note:  this it book TWO of a three book set!! 


The Story Continues in Part Two of “Carmen’s New York”

Kurt Nielsen, New York's most eligible bachelor, found the perfect woman in Carmen Wilson. Generous, sexually compatible, smart and funny - what they had together was more than sex. It was like magic. Surely she felt it too?

Well he thought so... until Carmen ran away.

Now Kurt is turning the city upside down to find her.

But Kurt's not the only one searching for her. Two Federal Agents and her violent, obsessive ex boyfriend who kept her chained in his basement for four months also want to get their hands on the vivacious Carmen.

Carmen would love to be with Kurt – but he is way out of her league. She has too many secrets - terrible secrets that might make him despise her. How could she possibly reveal them to him?

With so many things to run from, will Carmen make her escape?

Or will she run straight into Kurt Nielsen's arms?

*Synopsis/Book Description available via*


I found the perfect woman, he thought. And then I immediately lost her. Generous, sexually compatible, smart and funny. What we had together was more than sex. It was like magic. Surely she felt it too?
"That is an oui, alright," Kurt said. "I have had good sex with lots of women, André, but this one just did it for me on so many levels. She's smart and sexy and funny. I want to explore what I feel for her, and when I find her I want to bring her to you. We should have a ménage together just for fun. Carmen would be up for it, I bet. I'd really like to know what you think of her."

Across Eternity by Aris Whittier

Across  Eternity

by Aris Whittier

My Review

"Remember, anything is possible."  Those are Logan's words to Amber, shortly after he meets her in the fancy restaurant where she works.

Yes, anything is possible.  It is possible that two souls meant to be together, continuously find one another, time after time.  That even death does not destroy the connection the two souls have to one another.  Death simply disrupts their time, until they can be together again.  That is what happens between Logan and Amber.

Logan is a rich entrepreneur who is seeking out his soul-mate.  He knows her well.  Her name, face and features may change, but the person inside and the connection they have cannot be broken.  Logan is special.  He is someone who loves with every ounce of his being.  He traveled the world to find her.  He remembers everything.  When he finds Amber, he has to learn who she is now and help her to remember who they had been before.  He's known her all his life and if he can convince her to give him a chance, he can help her to learn what love is and bring her to a place where she can have everything she's ever dreamed of.  The only problem is explaining everything to her.  Instead of just telling her, he goes about trying to show her and helping her to see the amazing truth herself.

Amber feels a connection to Logan the moment she sets eyes on him.  She can't explain it, but she is drawn to him.  She agrees to spend time with him, not knowing who he is but feeling that she wants to understand him.  They start off slow and Amber learns that Logan is a man with many talents and has a good heart.  The more time they spend together, the more she questions everything.  Logan shares some details with her, but yet she doesn't remember him.  The closer the two become, the more Amber falls for him. 

If you've ever read a Nicholas Sparks book, you will enjoy Across Eternity.  You will need a box of tissues at the end though because this love story is romantic and bittersweet.  I won't spoil the ending or tell you too many details, because that would ruin it for you.  I will just say that Ms. Whittier has created a beautiful story that engages the heart and makes the reader wonder about true love and soul mates.  I felt my heart soar throughout the story and ache by the end.  Bittersweet covers the essence of this story the best.

Learn to love, learn to live, and learn to let go.  These are the greatest gifts we can give to others.  Live the life you heart begs for.  Love the people in your life.  When it's time, let them go from this place, knowing they are never truly gone.


Logan Richards is doubly blessed. Not only is he a genius but he has a rare gift, he remembers things and not just from this life but all his lifetimes. He lives a life of wealth and luxury and has never lacked any material possession. There has never been an obstacle his intellect couldn't overcome. But Logan has a problem: every night he dreams of the same woman, a woman he has dreamt of all his life. He knows she is real and he is determined to find her and convince her she belongs with him, forever.

Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in Dana Point, California, is overworked and stressed. Her sister's death has left her weary and wondering if there's something more to life than mere existence. Then, one evening while working she meets Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who feels deeply familiar.

Fate has brought them together, but will their growing love prove strong enough to resist the forces that could pull them apart?

Carmen's New York Climax by Nikki Sex

Carmen's New York Climax

by Nikki Sex

(book one)

**WARNING:  Explicit Material For Audiences 18+**

My Review:

This story was far more than just your usual erotic read.  There is a whole lot of HOT, STEAMY sex between the two main characters and the main theme is D/s, or Dominant/submissive.  However, there is something about Kurt that just screams "WOW."  You learn about both characters and are able to connect with them on some level.

Kurt has had some trouble and his name has been trashed thanks to his ex-girlfriend.  When his friends arrange a discreet tryst for him, with an experienced and  knowledgeable call girl, he is hopeful to release some pent up frustrations.

Carmen is on the run and has taken a job as a maid under a false name.  When she walks in to Kurt's room, having been told it was unoccupied, she is in for a hell of a shock.  The man inside is not only gorgeous, but as events unfold, she finds that he is caring, sensitive and yet strong and dominant.  Ghosts from her past threaten to ruin their time together, but Kurt's attentiveness pushes that all aside.

If you enjoy D/s erotica, and you like your Dom to have a good heart, with a firm hand, you will enjoy this book.  There is plenty of heat to keep you going, and at the same time, there is a tenderness that tugs at your heart.  These two are perfect for one another and I can't wait to see what happens in Carmen's New York Escape.

Please note:  there is a cliffhanger!! 


A Case of Mistaken Identity. . .

Young and rich, Kurt Nielsen is New York's most eligible bachelor. Except now he can't even bring himself to talk to a woman. How could he, after his last girlfriend took him to court? Kurt is still smarting from the injustice of it all.

Sick of his anger, his friends have bought Kurt a call girl. What could be better than a high-class hooker to cheer him up? The working girl will arrive dressed as a hotel maid, with an entire scene arranged.

Kurt has never paid for sex before and is uncomfortable with the idea, yet he agrees to meet her at the Hilton. But things don't go as planned when he arrives at the hotel two hours early.

Unknown to Kurt, when the maid walks into his suite, she isn’t his call girl. Carmen is an actual hotel maid, with a host of secrets and problems of her own. Sex-starved, Carmen simply cannot resist the carnal magnetic allure of Kurt.

Although they are complete strangers, sexual need and animal chemistry overwhelms them both. They quickly discover ecstasy together, again and again and again.

But what will happen when they discover their mistake?
*Synopsis available via*


(In this case, I will provide the excerpt given on

The door to Kurt's suite opened, and the call girl "maid" came in. Kurt could only stare for a moment, stupefied by the heavy heat of desire that spiked through him.

The trim, curvaceous woman held a stack of towels and walked with purpose. Head up, hips swinging, she had the kind of youthful, healthy spring in her step that any man would notice.

Kurt noticed.

In fact, Kurt couldn’t believe it. If you had asked him what he lusted after, he would never have come up with this woman's physical characteristics in a million years. He usually went for tall, leggy blondes. About five foot four, this woman had a smooth coffee with cream complexion, and shiny dark brown hair.

The maid's dark eyes widened with innocence and surprise when she saw him. Then she dropped her towels in feigned shock and fright. What an accomplished actress!

Kurt smirked. That one action gave him a dark thrill, and instantly brought his wolfish instincts to the fore. Did he want to chase her down, capture her, and then have his evil way with her? You bet your sweet ass he did!

The high class escort his friends had hired for him was seriously hot. Kurt had an immediate, overwhelming animal impulse to slam her up against a wall. And there was no reason in the world why he shouldn't do just that.


Carmen Wilson was also stupefied. She had been told by her supervisor to bring fresh towels, and had been assured that the suite was empty. It was clearly not empty.

The green-eyed, blond-haired hunk was muscular, solid, and much taller than she was. Holy crap! Carmen felt as if she had walked in on 'Thor the God of Thunder.' Her first impression had been one of unrestrained menace, and her pulse had instantly quickened.

Her next thought had been of sex - no holds barred, toe curling, teeth grinding, spine curling, pelvis arching, steaming, screaming, reaming hot sex.

The Tourist Killer by FCEtier

The Tourist Killer by FCEtier

My Review:

As with any good suspenseful thriller, you are put smack dab right in to the action in The Tourist Killer.  And, there are many players in the game that require watching for.  Once in a while, we step back in time to learn more about Claudia.  It's a major part in who she is now and what she does for a living.

As you go through each chapter, pay special attention to the major players of the game.  Each has a specific role.  There's no fluff or extra stuff.  It seems everything is intentional and each piece of the puzzle requires full attention.  The people, the locations, the actions...all have significance in The Tourist Killer.

Almost everything comes full circle by the end of this book and there was even a moment when my jaw dropped, and I didn't think the one character would say what he did.  This book includes conspiracy theories of not only various governments, but corporations as well. All in all it is a very elaborate story that fans of thrillers, politics, conspiracies, assassins and the like, will surely enjoy!


In his first novel, FCEtier delves into the mindset of a masters candidate and the events that take the student on a career path to the top of a lonely profession. We meet “The Shooter” as a mission is about to conclude and quickly become acquainted with a conflicted individual seeking resolution to inner conflicts as a phenomenal career enters its twilight years. Then another assignment comes up almost immediately.

How does an individual become a target? Who makes the life-ending decision? The cast includes potential victims, security staffs, and several eccentric characters including an aging hippie who speaks only in song lyrics and a former FBI agent with diverse interests. The role of Julian F. Thibaut, the enigmatic billionaire member of the one percent of the one percenters, changes with the winds and adds doubt to the already unstable status quo.

As the action proceeds on several fronts, the shooter battles conscience, hired killers, and burn-out while juggling relationships and attempts at normalcy. In this fast-paced story with political overtones, FCEtier takes readers on a thrilling ride while addressing personal, business, and governmental ethics.
*Synopsis available from*


"The shooter watched through the Zeiss scope as Gail Oppenheimer’s knees buckled and she dropped onto the lifeless body of her attacker. It had been a clean kill. One shot, not a moment late, and the life of a serial killer had ended."
"Claudia ignored the question and continued, “It’s all about belief systems of both individuals and collections of individuals — cultures. Do you think that governments that use capital punishment are guilty of murder? Do you agree that regardless of the efficiency of the judicial system that some criminals guilty of capital offenses go free? That’s where I come in."

Borderland Bride by Samantha Holt

Borderland Bride

Book One of the Borderland Legacy Series


Medieval Romance

This is a beautiful medieval romance that starts off with misunderstandings, secrets and an obstacle that both heroine and hero must overcome to truly understand one another.  With Isabel unable to speak, Jake must learn to read her to understand her.  A connection deeper than any words could ever foster, they open their hearts to one another.

But there are secrets and there are other obstacles keeping them from being together.  The reasons Jake came upon Isabel in the forest that fateful day begin to be revealed.  Danger is lurking and it is only a matter of time before everything comes to light.  But, will Jake and Isabel be able to have a future together?  Or will they get close, only to have her father's demands stand in the way?

Jake is a rough character that has his own hurts to overcome.  But, in Isabel he finds peace and love and the walls he's erected around his heart come crashing down.  I adored him and until the end was rooting for their love.

As always, Ms. Holt kept me on the edge of my seat.  There was plenty of romance, danger and a beautiful happily ever after that kept me smiling for quite a while.   If you enjoy medieval romance, I truly believe you will love this book.


In the wilderness of 14th century Northumbria, Lady Isabel discovers just how dangerous the Borderlands can be. With the loss of her voice and her hearing, there is little hope left for her. But when a brooding knight rescues her, she vows never to become a victim again and buries the secrets of her past in the hope that those hunting her will never find her in the Borderlands.

Jake is astonished to come across the beautiful Isabel, near to death, on his brother’s lands. Bringing her back to his brother’s home, he finds himself longing for something more from the courageous woman, something that he thought he would never want again. Isabel works her way into his scarred heart and opens Jake up to loving once more. But will Isabel’s secrets destroy their bond? And with his charismatic brother, Dominic, charming her, does he even stand a chance?
*Synopsis on*


As soon as his name left her lips, Isabel could not fail to detect the darkening of his eyes. Her skin tingled as elation turned to lust and she glanced down at her bare body, the heat of the water doing little to stop the shudder that coursed through her.
“Say it again,” he murmured as a hand came up to cup at her cheek.
“What?” she breathed.
“Say my name.” His thumb pushed across her damp face and her lips parted as her heart pounded faster. “Jake.”
Jake was surprised to find he was no longer filled with doubt, or fear. She had offered herself to him, not only in body but also in soul, and though it was true he was not sure why he was worthy of her, he found he did not doubt himself or their bond. Aye, she had not said she loved him, but he was sure of it now. He had spotted it in her eyes. He would dearly love to hear the words from her lips but he was secure in the knowledge the love between them was real.


This cover is beautiful, romantic and classy.  Clear images that properly depict the characters.   I love when a cover matches the vision I have for the hero and heroine, as this one does.  Easy to read and beautifully done.

Where to buy:
