My review

Wow As always author Cynthia Knoble did not disappoint. The story held my attention from the start. I love the way she brought the characters together. Zoe is a kickass alpha female that knows how to defend herself. She knows what she wants and goes for it. Ethan is not only a sexy cowboy, he’s the total package smart, loyal, loving, protective and protective.

An action-packed romantic story. Another 5-star read by author Cynthia Knoble. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next book.

Revenge of the Pirate Twins by Brandy Golden

She wants vengeance, he wants her.

Release Date: April 6, 2018

Buy Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BZLZ3ZW/

Twin sisters, Frankie and Kat Fontaine, are willful, undisciplined, highly skilled in weapons, and fiercely determined to find the infamous master of the black pirate ship called the Nemesis. Jacques LaSalle, the owner of that ship, is the blackguard that attacked their father’s merchant vessel, killing their father and abducting their mother.  First they will find out what happened to their mother, and then they will have their revenge.

Jacques LaSalle is intrigued and amused when he hears that a beautiful raven haired woman has been scouring the Caribbean for him and intends to challenge him.  No one has ever bested Jacques in a fight but he soon finds that Frankie is much more of a challenge than he thought. He intends to claim her for his own if she’ll stop trying to kill him long enough.

Morgan MacAlister is the pirate governor of the new colony, the Pirate’s Hideaway, and his gut instincts tell him that trouble is coming to his island paradise. When the mighty Aphrodite sails into his harbor carrying a set of twin sisters, the gorgeous redheaded sprite of the duo sets his senses on fire.

It’s a hot time on the high seas when the two arrogant men figure out that the twins have the power to rock their worlds. But the girl’s haughty attitude and lack of respect may well earn them several trips over a knee before it’s all said and done.

Jacques watched his helpless prisoner as she twisted and fought to no avail.

“Lucky for you, Frenchy will not bring charges against you for trying to kill him. He is leaving your punishment to me, ma petite. Something I plan to thoroughly enjoy.”

He stepped in close to Frankie’s body, his hands slipping to her breasts. They were full and firm to the touch and he could enjoy them at will. He lightly teased the buds through her clothing, causing her nipples to harden in response.

“I bet the Spaniard enjoyed these, did he not? The real question is, did you enjoy it this much?”

He smiled in satisfaction as a groan escaped her trembling lips. He wrapped his hand in her hair and pulled her close against his chest, the hard nipples crushed against him as his mouth sought her full rosy lips.

Frankie moaned and tried to twist her head from side to side, trying in vain to avoid his capture. Her senses swam and her breasts ached against the hardness of his broad muscles. His mouth was so close to hers she could feel his warm breath with only a whisper to separate them. Was this how he was going to punish her? Surely he would not take her against her will?

“Frankie, you cannot deny the flames between us. Let yourself go, ma Cherie.” His tongue lightly teased her lips, gently parting them and sliding into her mouth. He felt her buck against him as she responded in spite of herself.

Smiling, he stepped away from her. “This could all have been avoided if you had just cooperated with me earlier. But now your stubbornness will cost you.” Slowly, he began to unbutton her shirt, allowing his tongue to trace the soft flesh, as it was unveiled.

“So, it comes to this?” she spat at him in her fury. “You are going to just take what you want without permission?”

“Non, I won’t have to take anything,” he assured her. “You will be begging me. Your body gives you away, ma petite.”

“Go to hell!” Frankie stood proudly, knowing she was fighting a losing battle to withstand this assault on her senses.

She was helpless to do anything but whimper in protest as his tongue trailed liquid fire across her breasts and down her stomach. Finally, he stopped, and she slumped in relief.

“What to do with these clothes?” he murmured wickedly, knowing the effect his “torture” was having on her. “Ah, well, clothes can be replaced.”
“What are you doing?” she cried, silently cursing the blindfold when she felt the cold touch of steel on her back as the shirt was cut. It increased her other senses when she couldn’t see. Sound, hearing, touch, all were heightened to a sharper clarity, especially the sensations her shivering body was experiencing. “You have no right!”

“I have every right to punish you when you break the rules,” he replied silkily. “How I do so, of course, is up to me.” He chuckled as his knife made short work of the trousers and undergarments, leaving his proud pirate in nothing but her boots and her long raven hair cascading down her stiff spine.

A little humiliation would do her a world of good. Walking behind her, he ran his palm down her smooth back and over the satiny softness of her buttocks, admiring the firmness beneath their soft covering. Trailing around to the front, his fingers blazed a path across her flat stomach. She was mouthwatering. Her slender waist narrowed to lush hips, then down to long slim legs encased in black boots to the knees. The sight was intoxicating, and his body couldn’t be any more responsive to her charms. He was beginning to wonder who was torturing who.

I am a sweet romance writer with a bit of the hot and spicy. I love to create wonderful fantasies with strong alpha males who love to take their women in hand and love them like they’ve never been loved before! I write stories to lose yourself in and I hope you will love mine and come back for more. I work a full-time job, live in the midwest with my family and love pictures and scrapbooking. I have five children, two of whom are married and between them, I have six grandchildren. I live in the country and I love cowboy stories and I’ve written a few of those too. And of course, I’m an avid reader, especially stories with a lovely brat who gets her bottom warmed when it’s deserved.

Her Two Doms

A sexy, contemporary, menage Romance

by Ashe Barker.

Release Date: April 5, 2018

Buy Link –>> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B4P8Y5L/

They’re not at school now. These are games for grown-ups, and Ellie’s not sure of the rules

They were her heroes, her golden boys. But the two men she’s loved since they were all at school together don’t even recognise her.

A chance encounter on a train threatens to destroy Ellie’s fragile dream. Reunited with the now Duke of Erskine and his best friend, international footballer Declan Stone, she lies yet again to protect herself. But this time she doesn’t get away with it.

They want her, they always did. And there was a time she would have done anything for them. But can the quiet, studious Ellie learn to play grown-up games with two rich and powerful men? Does she dare to? What will Her Two Doms demand of her, and does she want to be sucked into their world again?

“Look at me, Ellie.” Fraze’s tone is quiet but compelling. I have no choice but to obey him. He continues, holding my gaze as he speaks. “We shouldn’t rush this. We won’t. But if you’re nervous about it—and Ellie, we can both see that you are—the sooner we get it over with the better. The first time is always a big deal. Your second time will be easier.”

“S-second time…?”

“Well, assuming you like it, obviously,” says Declan. “But I think you will.”

I swallow again and try to assemble some coherent thoughts. There are questions I need to ask. “Will it…? I mean… I get it, about the spanking and that it has to be on my bare bottom and all that. It’s personal, very intimate…”

“Part of the unique charm of a spanking, I always think,” offers Fraze.

I nod. Baring my backside for them is part of the thrill, I’m honest enough to admit that, if only for my own benefit. I reckon they already know.

“Go on,” Fraze encourages me. He is leaning forward, his elbows on his thighs and his fingers intertwined in front of him.

I have his undivided attention. Beside me, Declan is equally intent.

“It’s just…there are two of you. And earlier, you said something about sharing. About taking turns.”

“Yes,” agreed Declan, “we did.”

“Would one of you watch while the other…?” I grind to a halt, hopelessly out of my depth. I have two degrees and a PhD in clinical research methodology and don’t even know what questions to ask about a simple little spanking.

Declan squeezes my shoulders. “We could do it that way. Or we could both spank you at the same time. That would be our preference.”

“Okay,” I agree. I’m so far out of my comfort zone it hardly matters. “And would it…? I mean, what about sex?”

“What about sex?” Fraze tilts his chin, the glint in his emerald-coloured eyes softening perhaps a fraction.

“Would you expect me to sleep with you? With either of you? Both of you?” There. I’ve said it.

“Expect? No.” Fraze shakes his head. “If you only want the spanking, then it stops there.”

“Are you sure? What about what you want? Both of you?”

Declan is the one who answers. “Yes, we’re sure. It’s what you want that matters, Ellie. We’ve done this plenty of times before. We know how it goes, and you can believe us when we tell you that the fucking is an optional extra.”

“You spank a lot of women?” I shouldn’t feel jealous, but I do.

“Enough,” admits Declan

“Together? Both of you at the same time?”

“Yes, quite often at the same time. It adds to the fun, we find.”

“And…you fuck them, too?” I whisper.

“Yes, if they’re up for it. And before you ask, we like to do that together, too.”

Oh, dear sweet Lord. I should be running screaming from the building but instead I sit there, gazing into Fraze’s mossy eyes while Declan caresses my clavicle and moisture pools in my knickers.

“I think… I mean, perhaps… I’m not sure if…” I have quite lost the power of speech.

Fraze grins at Declan. “Just the spanking for now, I reckon.”

Read Jett and Ruby’s story to find out if two wary hearts can find out where they belong in Billionaire Unloved, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling series from J.S. Scott!

Ruby:

My name is Ruby Kent, and I’m homeless, a virgin, and terrified when I’m kidnapped by human traffickers and put up for sale on the auction block. I’m for sale to the highest bidder, and I have no idea what my future will be, but I know it’s not going to be good.

I’m waiting for a chance to escape, and that opportunity finally comes after I’m bought and paid for.

Unfortunately, I have no idea that Jett Lawson has been sent to rescue me, not hurt me, and even after we’re both injured during my desperate attempt to run away, he still wants to take care of me.

Problem is, I have no idea how to trust anyone, or let anybody help me. I’ve always been alone. It’s safer that way.

Jett Lawson is a mystery to me, an enigma that just gets more complicated with every nice thing he does for me.

Is it possible for a woman like me to find happiness with a billionaire?

Probably not, but the more I get to know Jett, the harder is is to resist the lure of having a safe place to be, and a man like no other.

Jett is scarred just like me, but his wounds are all on the outside.

Mine are carved all over my soul.

Can two wounded people help each other heal, or will our profound differences tear us apart?

LINA

The music died down to a soft murmur when he moved closer to the forest nymphs. He stepped forward with all the dignity of a king. The spacious hall echoed with the quiet yet haunting click-clack of his leather boots. He had hair as long as that of the ravenous women, dark as his clothes and the forest behind. It was tied and flowed down his back.

They were too far away so I couldn’t make out the facial features of any of the actors. Still, his quiet strength and its intensity shook me to the core of my soul. He was silent and walked slowly as if he dominated time itself. The man owned the space around him and looked resilient enough to tame even the fire of those wild creatures.

The raven-haired women brought the ballerina before him and forced her down to her knees. When they let her go, they looked strangely humbled. Their eyes were cast down, a veil of hair covering their faces. The man in black waved his hand and the faeries dispersed. Their shadows got lost among the trees.

They had completely disheveled the young woman’s auburn hair and pulled her bodice down. The tops of her perky breasts were exposed to his gaze as she knelt for the dark stranger. Once she looked up at him, her entire being exuded fear so tangible I could taste it and feel it spreading all over my own skin. The ballerina clasped her small hands before her chest in a silent plea but she didn’t dare look away from her mysterious captor. He hadn’t moved a muscle and simply hovered over her with the same stillness. His eyes were tangling invisible rope around the trembling bird.

I sank my teeth into my tongue to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. It was difficult to separate myself from the action on the stage. My knees were the ones brushing against the forest floor while I waited for his command.

He reached out and moved a few tresses from the girl’s face. His fingers lifted her chin and caressed her. That simple touch provoked another moan. The pleasure of his intimate caress made the scared girl tremble harder. His fingers on her sensitive, heated skin were too much to handle. I knew it because their intense chemistry was flowing inside me, sharp as a knife and delicate like the most tender kiss.

Lilah E. Noir is an author of dark erotic novels and psychological stories. Her work has elements of taboo, seduction and different aspects of the BDSM lifestyle, with a touch of romance and tenderness. If you love flawed characters, submissive alpha females, unconventional dominant heroes, angst, emotional darkness, lots of kinky sex scenes her books might be your kind of pleasure.

Blurb:

Gavin is a struggling writer with a complicated past, who’s reeling from the loss of the only woman he’s ever loved. More than a year after the breakup, he’s still suffering major heartbreak and a serious case of writer’s block. In an attempt to help him out of his funk, Gavin’s best friend and fellow writer, Bobby, sets up an account for him on the new dating app SwipeDate.

After a few unsuccessful dates, Bobby challenges him to thirty more dates in thirty days. If Gavin can complete the challenge, Bobby will give him a check for twenty-five thousand dollars.

Does Gavin have what it takes to complete the challenge? Or will the trials and tribulations of modern dating prove to be too much?

Excerpt:

By the middle of the third coffee date, I’m realizing how bad of an idea three coffee dates in a row really was. My stomach grumbles and churns, willing me to the bathroom, but Danica, 20, from the Bronx, hasn’t paused long enough for me to get a word in edgewise. I’m not even sure she’s stopped long enough to breathe.

“So, then my mom’s like, ‘okay, Danica, you gotta figure out what to do with your life,’ and I’m like ‘Mom, I’m only twenty. I’ve got, like, a million years to figure things out’ and she’s like, ‘now, Danica, that’s no way to look at life. Time catches up to you.’ Blah. Blah. Blah. And of course, I was like, ‘Mom, you had, like, three kids by the time you were twenty, we aren’t on the same path’… like, not at all.” She finally pauses, her face scrunching in confusion. “Are you okay? You don’t look so good.”

“No?” I ask, trying my best to make the I-gotta-poop face go away. “I do need to use the restroom though, if you don’t mind.”

“Be my guest,” she says, and I make my way to the bathroom as casually as I can, though the countdown has begun. The sweat building on my forehead, and in my palms, tells me so. I nonchalantly swing the door open and take my time entering, but once it closes, I’m in a race against time. Date poops aren’t easy. You must time it like you’re taking a piss. Nobody wants to be that guy taking a shit in the middle of a date. It’s not like I’m a senior citizen here. The worst part of the process, of course, is the fact that toilet paper always likes to come off one square at a time when you’re rushing to line the seat. Who the fuck only uses a square at a time anyway? Why do they make it like that? Why?

Eyeing my phone, I know I only have another minute or so at best before she figures me out. I finish my business, and as I go to wash my hands, my reflection in the mirror startles me. I’m legitimately in an all-out sweat.

Yeah, that’s not obvious or anything.

I grab a wad of paper towels and dab my face the best I can before tossing the soaked towels in the trash and exiting the bathroom.

The walk back is like I’m making my entrance on American Idol or something. I feel all eyes on me, including hers, as I cross the cafe to our table. It’s like I’m in slow motion, the spotlight is on me… they all know. Of course, in reality, no one is paying any attention to me and Danica is too busy Snapchatting or selfie-ing on her phone to notice my approach, but that’s a moot point. I’ve got a writer’s brain, and with that, there’s a whole imaginary world going on around me at all times. It gets real exciting when I’m on a plane and envision it nose diving into the side of a mountain, everyone screaming and frantic as I sit calmly in resignation… or walking down a dark isolated alleyway and seeing my violent gang rape and death playing out before me.

It’s been like that since I was a kid. My parents were never really the type to care very much. Me and my brother were often left to our own devices as our parents worked and spent their remaining time trying to avoid each other and taking shit out on us. It formed, in me, an intense desire to escape. And seeing as an adolescent doesn’t have too many logical options at that point, an imaginary world was necessary for survival. I remember building a little fort in my closet; somewhere I could get away and disappear from the world. I’d sit in there under a dim lamplight and read epic adventure tales. The stories were my own, lived out every step of the way through my imagination. Though not real, it very much seemed so growing up. Those stories were all I had.

Funny how so little has changed.

Excerpt:

Quickly, I bend down and throw her over my shoulder. One of

my arms holds her legs down while my free hand swats her ass.

“You asshole!” she screeches.

“I don’t play. Now you know.”

She’s trying to kick me but not succeeding. Her fists thump

against my back as I take long strides to our table. At the last minute,

I decide to go past our seats to the pool tables. Luckily, one of them is

empty. I drop her ass right on the table. Balls scatter as she flails before

righting herself.

Her eyes blaze with fury. “You’re a dick, you know that?”

“Yup. Now stay here.” I point at her. Then I walk back to the bar

and grab four more shots of whiskey. I don’t want to drink much, but

apparently, she wants to prove a point. Fine. So be it. I won’t let her get

plastered, but she’ll have a hell of a buzz by the time we leave here.

I’m surprised to see she hasn’t left the pool table. Her eyes are on

me as I walk back. I place two shots down on the wooden ledge of the

table and tip one of the remaining two down my throat. She swallows

both shots, one after the other, and slams them down on the green felt.

“Hey, watch the felt,” I tell her.

She rolls her eyes and jumps down. “Up for a game?”

“Depends. Are we betting?” I drink down my other shot.

“Of course we are.”

“What are the stakes?” Oh, I can’t wait to see what she comes up

with.

She walks around the table, collecting the balls, racking them up.

“If I win, you drive me back to my apartment and walk me to my door.

No goodnight kiss, no good night fuck. Especially, no more caveman

bullshit.”

“Fine. And if I win, I take you back to my house and we do

whatever I want. No bullshit. No smart-ass attitude.”

She sticks out her hand, already swaying slightly on her feet. We

shake, then I pull her in close so our chests are touching. “Deal,” she

says breathily.

“Your ass is mine, darlin’.”

“When we were separated I wasn’t a monk, but you were always with me, always on my mind, I was always wishing I was with you, and what I was feeling all those months wasn’t some fantasy about a lost love. Now I know it was real. My love for you is real.”

“You’ve made me all gooey.”

“Like soft caramel? Then I’ll have to eat you up,” he purred, moving in and softly kissing her, “but tell me,” he continued, breaking away, “what was it you were thinking about when I walked in?”

“How amazing it is when we have sex.”

“We don’t have sex,” he murmured, moving her lips to her neck. “Sex is mundane, boring, yawnsville.”

“If it’s not sex what is it?”

“It’s bodily obsession,” he said huskily, pulling her t-shirt over her head and pressing his lips to her neck. “It’s all-consuming lust, it’s my devouring you, every part of you, your luscious body, your mind and your heart.”

She was utterly lost before he’d even finished speaking, and as his mouth kissed its way to her breasts and hungrily sucked her nipples, she moaned loudly and raised her chest.

“It’s owning your pussy,” he breathed, slipping his fingers between her legs, “making you wet like this then possessing you with my cock.”

Moving on top of her, he placed his member at her entrance and thrust home, and as he began to stroke she clung to his back, loving the feel of his powerful member and the rasping of his chest hairs against her nipples.

“It’s bending your body to my will, controlling its responses, feeling your willing surrender.”

“Yes,” she bleated, “yes, it’s all those things.”

“I can take you higher and higher,” he purred, his lips at her ear as he accelerated. “You can feel me lifting you.”

“God, Oliver, yes.”

“And I can bring you back down,” he crooned, slowing his strokes, “but still make you feel things.”

Staying buried inside her, he returned his mouth to her breasts, initially lapping, then nipping, making her squeal her protest, then suddenly withdrawing from her depths he kneeled up, deftly flipped her on to her stomach, and pulled her hips into his pelvis.

“It’s also smacking your ass,” he said sternly, landing his hand with a volley of hot smacks, “chastising and dominating you. Beg for more, Natalie!”

“Please, Sir, spank me more.”

“That’s not begging,” he scolded, teasingly rubbing his cock at her entrance. “Try again.”

“Please, Sir, please spank me some more. I need you to, please?”

Thrusting back inside her, he began spanking with one hand, dropping the other against her pussy and searching out her clit. As he urgently massaged the magic nub he could feel her walls pulsing against him, and her groans were growing more fervent. Clasping her hips he began to fuck in earnest, pounding her pussy with quick vigorous strokes.

“It’s taking you to the edge,” he exclaimed, then stopping abruptly he added, “then saying no.”

“Sir,’ she gasped, “please, I can’t stand it. Please let me come?”

“It’s hearing your need,” he said, unexpectedly softening his voice, “and giving it to you.”

Gripping her tightly he began to move, stroking purposefully, slowing building her back up, gaining momentum until her gasp told him it was time. Increasing his speed he rode her forward, and as she let out a series of wild cries, he let himself erupt, shuddering through his powerful climax in unison with hers.

Justice for Corrie

By: Author Susan Stoker

Blind since birth, Corrie Madison relies on her other sharpened senses in her job as a chiropractor. Never did she imagine she’d have to depend on them to identify a killer. But when a man enters her practice, murdering everyone in his path, Corrie is the only witness—putting her directly in the killer’s crosshairs.

Officer Quint Axton wasn’t looking for love, or even a relationship, until he meets Corrie. Beautiful and brave, resilient and intelligent, she’s everything Quint wants—if he can keep her alive long enough to explore their mutual attraction. The threats on Corrie’s life are escalating. Surely a blind person is helpless against a ruthless killer?

Hardly. Corrie is about to prove that disabled does not equal defenseless.

**Justice for Corrie is the 3rd book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
