Dragonfly In Amber (Outlander #2) By Diana Gabaldon

Book Description:

Published: November 2, 1993

For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to Scotland’s majestic mist-shrouded hills. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth as stunning as the events that gave it birth: about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones … about a love that transcends the boundaries of time … and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his….

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart … in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising … and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves….

Review –

Five stars *****. That about says it all.

As I listened to this, the second book in the Outlander Series, I found myself often holding my breath as I traveled along with Claire and Jamie on their adventures and misfortunes in England, France and Scotland. I laughed and cried and at the end I was left with my mouth agape and a feeling of awe and wonder filling me.

Excellent series.

Want it Bad by Melinda DuChamp

Book Description:

Published: December 8, 2014
Carla thought she had it all together.Then Jake moved in next door.

She never expected to fall for someone half her age. Especially Jake, an escort who specialized in very kinky sex.

But Carla was curious. And rich. And when Jake accepts her as a client, they each may have gotten more than they’d bargained for…

Review –
This is the first erotic romance that I found with humor as one of its main components and I love it. It’s too funny how Carla, a partner in a law firm, turns into a peeping tom when a male escort moves in next door. It’s hilarious when she goes to the yarn store and the adult toy store. (you’ll have to read the book to find out how yarn and learning to crochet  has to do with sex). There is even some humor in the HOT sex scenes which makes them less embarrassing (at least for me)
I loved this book and it’s characters.   Great read.

Mr. Insatiable by Serenity Woods

Book Description:

Published: February 1, 2013

Gossip says he is hot between the sheets. Has Mr. Insatiable finally met his match?
Enya’s been curious about Kit’s bedroom exploits ever since his ex-girlfriend spilled the beans about his…skill. But he’s not for her. Enya can’t provide what he wants from life, especially not between the sheets.

After Enya admits she’s not good at sex, Kit persuades her to trust in him. Together, they can create fireworks in the bedroom. A few drinks followed by a discussion about kinky sex, and Enya succumbs to his charm.

Thrilled he’s been proven correct, Kit can’t keep his hands off Enya, and she’s unable, and unwilling, to resist him. But is it just great sex…or something more?

Review –

This is a fun to read erotic romance because you can tell right away what the ending will be but there is a twist and that adds to the pleasure. The chemisty between best friends, Kit and Enya is HOT and although both of them think it would be better to NOT do what their bodies are telling them to do, they do it anyway.  It’s a great read and has a great cover.

Force Majeure (Apprivoise #3) by Arden Aoide

Book Description:

Published: August 31, 2013

Force Majeure takes us on a lustful journey of near obsession, past the normal niceties of sex and romance, and into the intricate mind of Jeff Rainier. A mind both complex and simple. He knows the rules, but doesn’t always want to understand them.

Evan Monroe was looking for more in her life, but was unconvinced there was such a thing. She was bored, and unnecessarily jaded. But, she’d try anything once; twice if you begged.

Jeff Rainier turned out to be a force that was almost too hard for her to handle.

Force Majeure is a novel that tries to define love, but only confuses the matter.

Review –

This is the third installment of the Apprivoise Series and it in Jeff and IT man with a stammer has it bad for Evan Monroe who wants a man to dominate her. There is a lot of texting and sex but all in all it’s a good read and I’m glad I read the series.

Morphoses (Apprivoise #2) by Arden Aoide

Book Description:

Published: January 13, 2014

Morphoses is a story of transitions. Miranda Marchand, manager and proprietor of Club Dishabille, has a bit of a secret. She’s not ashamed, but she’d rather not have to explain herself to men she might bring home. A chance meeting in a secluded hallway with one Nicholas Jones, ex-husband of Dahlia Warwick, exposes her turgid secret. It transforms her opinion about future possibilities. She wants Nick. She wants to see how far she can push him. She wants him on his knees…

Nick can’t get enough of her. While he indulges Miranda, he has his own transformation that takes him kicking and screaming into a functioning relationship, and he learns to let go of deeply held guilt from his previous marriage.

Morphoses is an epicurean adventure for those who love the Club DIshabille universe.

Review –

This is a follow-up to Dishabille and involves two of the characters from the first book.  To say that Miranda has a strange kink, that’s putting it mildly. I’v never run across  this in any of the hundreds of books I’ve read.  Are you ready for it?   Penis envy. She wears a strap on when ever she can and that’s not all she does with it.  This installment of the series is VERY kinky.

Origin by J.N. Konrath

Book Description:

Published: April 8, 2009

1906 – Something is discovered by workers digging the Panama Canal. Something dormant. Sinister. Very much alive.

2009 – Project Samhain. A secret underground government installation begun 103 years ago in New Mexico. The best minds in the world have been recruited to study the most amazing discovery in the history of mankind. But the century of peaceful research is about to end.

Because it just woke up.

When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert , he has no idea he’s been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon.

He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan.

But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth…

Review –

A very eerie story of coming face to face with the most evil thing on earth or anywhere else and what happens when you try to out smart it.

A great read.

In The Tall Grass by Stephen King and Joe Hill

Book Description:

Published: October 9, 2012

As USA TODAY said of Stephen King’s Mile 81: Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?”

In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they lost one another. The boy’s cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King can deliver.

Review –

This is a very short story that will keep you from stopping on any deserted highway and walking into tall grass. Very spooky. I loved it.

Dishabille (Apprivoise #1) by Arden Aoide

Book Description:

Published: January 14, 2014

How do you fall in love in the modern world when you have a teenage
daughter and a codependent ex?

You seek out the owner of a fetish club, of course.

Dishabille – The state of being only partly or scantily clothed. It’s the perfect name for Miranda Marchand’s nightclub. For her brother, Alexander Marchand, it is the perfect place to find women who can fulfill his every desire. While his kinks aren’t uncommon, his affections run too fast and too deep for the cautious and aloof. He has given up on finding the one who can embrace his impulsiveness. For Dahlia Warwick, Club Dishabille is the gateway to a sensuous new world. A world she craves. Dahlia meets with Miranda with a seemingly simple task: To help her find a man who would be patient enough to guide her through her submissive fantasies, but not dismiss her fears. Miranda knows that Dahlia is not one for play that doesn’t involve her heart, and she knows only one man who could guide and teach her, to worship and to love her. It’s a rapid awakening for both Alex and Dahlia, quickly laying trust and intimacy on the table. Club Dishabille spanks the genre of romance and gives the readers the hearts and flowers they love and only the palest of pink bottoms. It is an erotic tale for those who aren’t looking for Cinderella or Prince Charming. It is a feast for those who want it a little bit…rougher.

Review –

This is an erotic romance with 70% talk and 30% texting  and sex. Nothing really special but a good read. The characters are unique and there is actually a plot.
