Review: Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire

Image
Thrones of Desire: Erotic Tales of Swords, Mist and Fire by Mitzi Szereto

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





Swords, magic and dragons entwined with erotica sex, what could be better for a fantasy lover? Perhaps a story with a beginning, middle and end would help. Collections are sometimes really good with stories to lure the reader in and find new authors. Generally with erotic fantasies written by romance writers, the readers is satisfied with smexy hot sex scenes and a lot of romance. The sci-fi fantasy part of it is very light. If a science fiction writer delves into this genre, the reader is treated to a magical world with little emotional development. It feels cold as the characters are not engaging.

The foreword in this book by well known author Piers Anthony also mentions a few other stereotypes based on where the writer comes from. He proposes this book of erotic tales will be different. It is with regret that I say it's a typical sci-fi fantasy anthology leaving an erotic reader hi…

Review: Applying for Pleasure

Image
Applying for Pleasure by Jade James

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





A company that fulfills the sexual fantasies of an adult – where is this company? How much does it cost for a fantasy? Where is the signup sheet? The concept of this story is pretty hot. The company, Capture Inc., is the brainchild of brothers John and Sean. It's a lovely little dive into the erotic desires of many women who want a little "kidnapping" thrill. While sex is not advertised, it's implied.

Capture Inc. definitely catches Ariel's attention. She's wanted to submit and be helpless in the arms of her captor. She also has an ulterior motive that makes the story a bit odd. For the sexual tension and the writing voice, Ms. James does a good job. As far as the plot goes, the reader should temporarily suspend their disbelief.

Ariel and John's past connection is just bizarre. It did not help the story or enhance it. My guess is that it's supposed to be character building. It's supposed …

SM Johnson excerpt of Above the Dungeon

Image
This new narrator Sirly Eric is so hawt when it comes to M/m BDSM stories.  Above the Dungeon by SM Johnson is treated to a lovely narration of a sexy scene between Roman and Dare.  It's not to be missed.  I enjoyed this book greatly so I'm glad SM Johnson participated in our BDSM Bedtime Stories.  Enjoy!


Review: Love Runes

Image
Love Runes by Jay Lygon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Why did it take me so long to read this book? I read the first in this series earlier and really enjoyed it. This second one is just as fabulous for me. This is a BDSM m/m SM Daddy kink delight!


The intermingling of gods and goddesses amongst the mortals is reminiscent of Greek gods and goddesses. The different types of deity are fabulous. The obvious God of Love, God of Sex are expected. I still love the Goddess of Traffic and Goddess of Negotiation. These were fun. In this latest book, Sam is still with Hector. They have a M/s SM relationship going with Sam's desire for Daddy kink too. The SM is hot. Make no doubts about it. Plus the issues that arose in the book were dead on issues in a M/s relationship. Mr. Lygon does an excellent job. His portrayal of BDSM is hot and oh so good. I love it.

The world Mr. Lygon creates is fabulous too. The way he built it with ghosts, Wiccans and deities is very smooth and enjoyabl…

Review: Owner of My Heart

Image
Owner of My Heart by Valentina Heart

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





They say the hardest thing for a parent to live through is the death of a child. In OWNER OF MY HEART, this holds true for both Rin and Merin. This war that tore a nation apart seems to be more trouble than it's worth. Merin is doing his best to shelter and protect Rin. At every turn, it seems as if there is an assassin ready to kill Rin. Why is this?

The conflict arises in two folds. Rin's nation believes Rin should have more say and rule beside Merin. They threaten to break the strained nation apart. The second conflict is the constant assassination attempts on Rin. These issues I lay all at Merin's feet. I'm not sure if Ms. Heart purposely designed Merin this way, but he comes across as too kind hearted and easy to forgive. It seems his subjects need to respect him through fear. No one fears him. He needs to be more ruthless. For example, instead of letting all the previous lovers go, I'd have assessed…

Happily Every After HOTNESS!

Image
Happily Ever After by C.B. Conwy is a book I MUST READ!  I'm a huge fan of CB Conwy.  CB kindly provided an excerpt of Happily Ever After.  I wet my panties listening to Sirly Eric reading it.  CB enjoyed the reading too.  Check out CB's blog - Happily Ever After Audio.

Review: Page 93

Image
Page 93 by Maggie Montgomery

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





Make a cup of hot chocolate and curl up to read this sweet romance. In PAGE 93, Raelynn is a southern belle who's been knocked on her ass. Her ex-husband didn't leave her for another woman. He left her for another man. For a boyish-figured Raelynn, this is a serious blow to her feminine ego.

When a single dad moves in next door, sparks fly between the neighbors when they are trapped in a freak Georgia snowstorm together. Alec finally meets the sexy single mom next door when he crashes into her yard. Every neighbor has already stopped by to say hello but Raelynn. Raelynn's frozen sex life finally thaws out when Alec decides to take her up on her southern hospitality.

This story is a short sugary sweet romance. It's a feel good one with some lovely sexual scenes. Nothing is that graphic but it is lovely to image. The pivotal item this book is built around is the fabled sex book Sexual Positions for Greater Orgasms.

Review: A Very Demon Halloween

Image
A Very Demon Halloween by Evanne Lorraine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Dragons are one of the hottest shifters and I adore them. A paranormal romance book with a dragon shifter plus BDSM is a must read. In this third Hunters book, Duec, the leader of the hunters, finally reveals his demon type. He’s actually not a demon but a dragon. But wait, there is more. He’s a dragon king.

This hot dominant dragon Duec wants something he thinks he can not have - Belinda. Belinda is a Domme in his exclusive BDSM club, La Ceinture Noire. This club cateers to the paranormal kind and still lets in humans for fun. He’s watched the traumatized half-elf female grow into a sexy Dominatrix. Belinda is in love with Duec since he rescued her from the goblins. Growing up under his watchful eye, she doesn’t think she’ll have a hope to be his submissive. Then again, can she submit to him when she’s a dominant?

Ms. Lorraine does a lovely job adding more pieces to this world she’s created. It’s a magical …

Review: Starfish and Coffee

Image
Starfish and Coffee by Kele Moon

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars



Slice my heart into ribbons and then pour salt into the wounds as I lay crushed. This is how I felt through many parts of this book. Alex and Matt spend a summer of kinky love together. Matt is the rich boy slumming with the “local” boys by working as a short order cook in a rundown café.

Ms. Moon writes lovely moving books for me. She spends time building the characters and showing how their family and choices lead them to where they are today. She invokes emotions from the start of the book. Within the third page, my heartstrings are already yanked hard. “He looked up, seeing Matt’s handsome face fade away and turn to dust. He reached frantically for Matt’s shoulders, once powerful l and strong. Alex’s fingers slipped through the air, clutching at emptiness. Matt was nothing but a memory now, and Alex had known it. It’d been years since he’d gotten more than just a taste of love lost in these nighttime fantasies; …

Review: Deceived

Image
Deceived by Silvia Violet

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Only the allure of a possible vengeance would convince a trip to the godforsaken world of Lithusia. This is the planet where Derek was tortured over and over again by the Krax. This second book in the series is a piece in the puzzle to who sold out IIB agents Derek and Lark. Derek is determined to get to find the traitor and make them pay. When they discover it is someone they trusted, it shatters them.

The story moved pretty fast and was a quick read. The reader learns more about this world and the conspiracies against Derek and Lark. More questions are raised which one can only hope are answered in the next book. Many of the questions from the previous book are answers in this one. Still, this book can be confusing at times. It could be because the names Derek and Lark are so similar that at times it’s hard to remember which person is talking and which one is the one with issues. It could also be that the two characters a…

Review: Living M/S: A Book for Masters, slaves and Their Relationships

Image
Living M/S: A Book for Masters, slaves and Their Relationships by Dan Williams

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



This was one of the buddy reads in the BDSM group. Since I'm interested in D/s relationships, a M/s book was right up my alley. I found this book to be written in an easy format to understand.

It's not a manual, just as they said. Instead, it's more of a journey sharing of experiences which worked and didn't work for them. In addition, it gave us insight into their background as to why they wanted their M/s relationship to work they way it it did. It seems their vanilla relationships really burned them and the ones they know of are kind of dysfunctional too. It makes more sense why the M/s works so well for them.

Many of the M/s "twist" on a marriage I find would help any marriage. Because honestly, communication and trust is required for any relationship to work and be healthy balanced. I particularly enjoyed two pieces in this book. The first one …

My Liege of Dark Haven Audio

Finally we have one of our most popular author's excerpt read.

My Liege of Dark Haven by Cherise Sinclair


This thirty minute reading should give you a taste of the talented Ms. Sinclair.  It is narrated by Sirly Eric and yours truly.  Sirly Eric did an AWESOME job.  There are times when he reads Xavier's parts which had me melting into a puddle.  Wowza!



On a personal note, I'd like to thank Ms. Sinclair for being so understanding when she turned in her excerpt before the majority of the authors already posted.  Her participation in the BDSM Bedtime Stories is much appreciated.  Please check out her website - http://cherisesinclair.com/.

Enjoy!

Behind Closed Doors Audio Post

Behind Closed Doors by Sherri Hayes is our latest BDSM Bedtime Story.

This was a lot of fun to read.  I added in a couple of sound effects to try something new.  I don't know how many people noticed it.  I definitely want to read the book after the excerpt.  I'm intrigued.  Why did she scream?


Review: Sweet Awakening

Image
Sweet Awakening by Melinda Barron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Sprinkle me with glitter! I've only categorized this as glitterkink because there are wealthy men (so are the women) and there are not one but two exclusive clubs. That is the extend of the glitterkink though. The D/s and hot menage in this book is tasty good! The reader is treated to a woman who struggles with her submissive side and comes to term with it through the help of two men.

Oscar and Walker are two hot Doms that have been friends for a long time. They also share their submissives. Harper is a woman fighting to find her missing sister. While she doesn't enjoy the BDSM lifestyle, she's not going to judge her sister for loving it. Hiring Walker some how involves Oscar and Harper's in for a ride.

This story's main message is that it takes the right fit to find the right BDSM relationship. Not everyone's kink is the same but when matching kinks align, it's a beautiful thing to see. S…

Review: Equipment and Other Stories

Image
Equipment and Other Stories by Kay Jaybee

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





Holy hot short stories! In this collection of three erotic shorts, the reader is treated to some great femdom as well as girl on girl action. It's hard to decide which one is more enjoyable. In EQUIPMENT, there is a bit of anal play with a male submitting to a woman. Femdom lovers, this is a nice sweet tease. If only pegging showed up in this story, then it would have rated higher. Since I'm currently known as the pegging queen, anytime a male is submitting to a female, I yearn for a bit of rough pegging and a male moaning.

The GIRL NEXT DOOR is a sweet story for the guys with submissive tendencies. Under that sweet demur façade, a wild sexy lioness pounces out and hunts down the prey she wants. In this case, it's the hot guy next door who always thinks of her as a "friend". The dreaded friend category! For women who are tired of being relegated to the "friend" category, perhaps taking a …

Review: Accidentally on Porpoise

Image
Accidentally on Porpoise by Tymber Dalton

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





A body floating in the water will cause anyone to stop a boat and start an immediate rescue. When the body is a live naked hunk, it's a bonus!

Sean Morita's relaxing day out in the ocean just became very interesting. Not only do two dolphins nearly collide into his boat, but he also successfully pulls an unconscious Emery Nadel out of the water. Where did Emery come from? And where did the dolphin that crashed into his boat go?

Emery is a dolphin shifter. His fun day filled with a game of fuck tag was ruined by Denby, another dolphin shifter who wasn't paying attention to the boat. To save Denby, Emery shoves him out of the way and ends up getting his noggin smashed. The plus side is he falls into the arms of Sean. Ms. Dalton's trademark quirky snarky humour is easily seen through this book. My favourite concept in this book is the game of fuck tag. Now I only need to find some hot men to play tag with m…

Review: Siren Unleashed

Image
Siren Unleashed by Sophie Oak

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



This is a must read book! It is on my list to re-read over and over. Ms. Oak does it again with a fabulous book. In Siren Unleashed, she's touching upon touchy subjects. There are slaves, human trafficking, a cutter, fucked up women and some "broken" men. The focus is on Chase and Ben Dawson who are hot Navy SEAL twins. Be still my rapidly beating heart.

Natalie grew up in the D/s world, with her parents as prominent lifestylers. Kidnapped and tortured, what Natalie used to love has been twisted into something bad. It's sad when something good is turned into bad. Natalie finds a way to deal with it through cutting. Side note - as a former cutter, I can completely understand her need to cut. I was never as bad as Natalie is in this book, but I can attest to the physical pain from cutting to help me deal with things.

The Dawson twins are delicious. I agree with Natalie that Chase is the intriguing on…

Review: Molly’s Lips: Club Mephisto Retold

Image
Molly’s Lips: Club Mephisto Retold by Annabel Joseph

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars



It is with trepidation, I started this book. Let it be known, I'm a fan of Mephisto. I've read reviews from other friends who indicated this book made them hate or dislike Mephisto. To my relief, my opinion of him didn't change, except to hurt a little bit more for him. He obviously loves Molly and he can't act upon it. Since I read this series out of order, I know what is to come in Burn for You. Knowing what I do now about Mephisto and what he wants from Molly, I'm actually a bit more in love with him.

Mephisto is definitely a Dom who is different than the "romantic" ones prevalent in this genre. He's a Dom who will take what he wants and "trains" his submissive to how he wants them to behave. It's interesting seeing from his perspective because he's not perfect and he knows it. He questions himself at times and while he genuinely wants what is …

Review: Rosemary Entwined

Image
Rosemary Entwined by Bianca Sommerland

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars



Where is the first book to this series? I've now read BOTH of the books in this series and I'm thinking the author forgot something...the first book. Rosemary is a some type of Succubus who needs seven men to feed her. She also need to have one Prince. She has a slight problem, her mother wants her dead.

This story is really like a mix of Sunny's Mona Lisa Series plus Snow White. Although, to be fair, Sunny's book is a rip off of Anne Bishop's Dark Jewel series combined with aspects of LKH's Anita Blake books. If you've read all three of these series plus the story of Snow White, perhaps this book will be much easier for you to understand.

The similarities of Snow White are:

1. The seven men which is the same number of dwarfs
2. The dress (laced stays)
3. The comb
4. The golden apple

It's similar to the Mona Lisa series because of the need to feed off of men who make her nest. …

BDSM Bedtime Stories: Under by Duress

Under By Duress by Kayla Stonor






It is difficult for me to find a femdom story where the man is strong and submissive.  When I find book which is also well written, I'm in happy happy land.  Ms. Stonor is a new to me author whom I adore.  Her books are so good. 

I'm so happy she participated in our BDSM Bedtime Stories.

Review: Uncle Charles' Girls

Image
Uncle Charles' Girls by Anne Randolph

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Young women treated like young girls? Forced to have a strict governess and also be spanked and birched? How can I not like this book? Well, the book was decent. The first half of the story was too slow for me. I really wanted to skip to the good parts where the spanking commenced.

Clara and Louise are related loosely, not through direct blood. Due to a series of unfortunate deaths, they end up with Louise's older 1/2 half brother taken them in as his wards. They figured they'd have Charles wrapped around their finger. Not so. Charles believes in domestic discipline and does he love to spanking and birching women.

This story was kinky hot and enjoyable. I really only enjoyed the last half where there was not only spankings but forced anal sex. Yummy. Chloe, pulled into Clara and Louise's shenanigans was a much chastised wife. The story ends right as it gets good.

Apparently, the follow up book…

In one of the GoodReads groups, they held a writing event.  The below blurb was provided as the guidance.  I tried to follow this blurb with the picture of a bronzed hair naked woman in ropes.  I sort of missed the last paragraph so my story is not exactly according to the parameters.

I've also made a change to make it a bit sci-fi. Enjoy!

Review: If I Were You

Image
If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Romantic suspense lovers who enjoy a bit of kink, where are you?  For the vicarious kinky lover, this book is for you.  Ms. Jones is a new to me author who captured my attention within the first few pages.  If I Were You is the first of a kinky suspense trilogy.  There are sexy bad boys cranking up the sensual tension and heat in this lovely story.

Originally this was billed as a "Fifty Shades of Gray meets Basic Instinct".  With a recommendation like this, I immediately flagged it as a do not read and passed on it.  I went to look for a real book to read, not some knock off fan fiction of a fan fiction based off an unoriginal story series.  I should have ignored that description.  This book is a delight!

Sara is a high school English teacher who threw away her hopes and dreams.  She loves art and wanted to be in the art world.  Due to circumstances which are revealed later in the book, it's pretty clear, this twent…

Review: O Come All Ye Kinky

Image
O Come All Ye Kinky by Joey W. Hill

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Bound for the holidays, anyone? This delightfully kinky anthology is filled with authors I really enjoy. If you are into the holiday spirit and want to read some kinky BD and D/s, this book is for you! The majority is m/m smexy romance. Each story is crafted with a message of love and romance. Delightful!

Ms. Davitt kicks off the anthology with a dysfunctional D/s relationship. It's painful to watch the misunderstandings and miscommunication. I felt badly for the Dom who is trying to find his way while being treated with disrespect. It's a different perspective, to see it from the Dom side who isn't perfect and is struggling. Once again, Ms. Davitt does an excellent job of showing a D/s relationship without lecturing. Loved it! 3.5 stars for this one.

Review: Love by Number

Love by Number by Kara Leigh Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Interested in a whirlwind island romance? This is the sweet story for you. Ashleigh is a workaholic at an island resort who's been badly burned by a lover. Not only did he cheat on her, he stole her best friend and all her money. Ryan is a new employee to the resort and will be working directly for Ashleigh. The sparks fly when the handsome hunk chases after his sexy boss.

This sweet story moves at a good pace. The conflict is believable and the characters are engaging. The reader can feel the turmoil Ashleigh experiences. Ryan's duplicity is also easily understandable. What is confusing about the story is Ash's ex-boyfriend, Mark. Why is he still calling her? What does he want from her? What was the purpose of the phone calls other than to aggravate Ashleigh? Is it a set up for something else? It was never used to help Ryan overhear and gain insight about Ashleigh.

There is one thing about this stor…

Review: Bloodweight

Bloodweight by Eva LeNoir

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Vampires, shifters, demons and females kicking ass in MMA cage fighting, what's not to like? HAWT! Ellen is a MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter who is the underdog in a cage fight. She's caught the attention of a master vampire, Nash. Nash is the one running the fighting circuit with an eye on Ellen. Ever since she rebuffed his attentions, Nash has been watching her.

This short story is written with a good focus and nice build up in sensual tension. The MMA is something I really enjoy - to have it incorporated in this manner is a lovely touch. It would have been nice to incorporate a bit more lingo to the enrich the fighting scene. Using terminology such as their fighting styles or martial arts discipline would have been nice. For example, one of my favourite holds is the rear naked choke. This could have been easily slipped into the story line when the demon was down and Ellen had the upper hand. This obviously naugh…

Review: It's Not Shakespeare

Image
It's Not Shakespeare by Amy Lane

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This is one of the sweetest romances I've read in a long time. Ms. Lane is always good for excellent character development. In this story, there is a badly burned Professor James of literature. Then there's the hot Rafael. They seem to be opposite, yet they are not. They are so good for each other. My favourite phrase in here - co-daddy. This was so sweet, what this term represents and symbolizes.

What I really like about Ms. Lane's books is how good they make a person feel. "Marlowe" of the worlds can be noticed as loveable human beings and I love this. She's one of my favourite feel good authors because she inspires a person to hope and learn that bad things happen, but that does not negate the good in the future. Or in the present, for that matter.

Plus, she's so darn smart! Her writing level is provocative in an intellectually stimulating way. I'm blow away with the arguments …

Review: Test Shot

Test Shot by Cari Quinn

My rating: 3 of 5 stars





A doctor and a hot male doctor, what's not to love in this threesome? Just one problem, there is no threesome. If the story blurb alluded to a ménage, forget it. There is no ménage here, unless the goal is for some cuckold voyeurism instigated by the hot doctor.

Layla is an agent for the company Hot Shots. She finds attractive male and female models for her company who represent the more risqué businesses in need of models. She's happily engaged to her fiancé, Aidan. Their move from Nebraska to the Big Apple is stressful with new jobs, new home and moving away from their loved ones. That must be why Aidan isn't sexing up Layla anymore. Or at least this is what she tells herself.

Sawyer is a model Layla is working on signing to her company. He's sexy and also from Nebraska. When Aidan suggests and manipulates the three of them into a ménage, no one is more surprised that Layla. Playing along, she succumbs to this wickedly …

Want to live forever? All that is needed is the body of a person who recently passed away. The rich are able to transfer their existence into these "hosts". Ready for a world where people jack into the "information highway" to find information? Unfortunately, depending on the wealth of a person determines what kinds of drugs are used to help surf the net. The poor are given addictive and destructive drugs.
