Promo Spotlight: ACQUIESCE by Cory Cyr!

Title: Acquiesce
Author: Cory Cyr
Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance
Release Date: December 30, 2014
****18+ due to adult language and explicit sexual content*****

Caspian Vance~former child prodigy, now an accomplished professor of human sexuality at twenty-six has it all—an IQ that's off the charts, a stellar career at which he excels, and the drop-dead looks and body that make women spontaneously combust with lust.

He's been studying sex and women's behavior since he was sixteen. When it comes to the science of human lust and the rewards of sexual pursuits, he has all the answers.

There's one thing he knows for sure: "love" has nothing to do with it. 

Sex is a basic, primal human need—love is an unstable, emotional complication. Both are present in a person, but completely unrelated. His own world of logic and fact accepts this truth and now. . .

He's going to prove it.

When Cass takes a sabbatical to research his theory in order to write his third book, he enlists the help of a former lover and now owner of the world's most exotic and secretive male brothel catering strictly to wealthy older women. On this remote Caribbean island, he uses his keen sense of observation and research to prove "love" is merely a series of chemical reactions in the human brain—nothing more.

Nicola Barrington~ had the perfect life, married to her soul mate.Ten years into her one and only relationship, her idyllic world is shattered by the death of her beloved husband. The loss of her "one true love" sends her into seclusion where she spends the next eleven years pining for the man she still loves.

The beautiful heiress, stays hidden away, her only connection to the outside world being being the hired help and her two close friends. Her friends know Nic has much to live for and are eager to see her find love again. . . and if not love, they would settle for her rediscovering the throes of lust.

As her 40th birthday approaches, her two friends succeed in coaxing her out of her emotionally safe haven to celebrate with a trip to an exclusive resort known for "restoring an older woman's brilliant, inner glow."

Caspian’s superiority and logic combined with Nic's innocence and melancholy are on an imminent collision course. Sometimes even a genius has a hard time figuring out a woman.

SILVER THAW - Catherine Anderson

Romantic Suspense 

Mystic Creek, Oregon - Present Day 

Amanda Banning is living in Oregon, renting a ramshackle home far away from her abusive husband.  It took some doing, but now she is finally settled and working at the local school cafeteria.  Amanda has no car, no cell phone, and takes great pains to stay hidden from Mark Banning.  All she can do is dream of the day she'll have enough money saved to pay for a divorce.  She has nothing but her dreams.  Lately, she's taken to writing her wishes on thin strips of pink paper, then walking outside where she lets them fly away on the wind, her way to sending messages to God.  They are her private thoughts and wishes; she thinks that no one will ever see them as they disappear into the night sky. 

Jeb Sterling is fuming.  He's picked up countless pieces of pink paper tangled on the fences and trees on his property.  They've been scattered all over his place for days, and more seem to arrive each morning.  When he notices the writing on them, he begins to read each one, and now knows that a very impoverished and lonely woman lives nearby.  But where? 

When a sudden ice storm disables the area, knocking out electric services, Jeb and his neighbor, Tony Bradley, go to the rescue.  They divide up the community, each visiting homes on all the streets, checking on the people, many who are elderly.  And, at the dead-end of Elderberry Lane, Jeb finds a young woman hiding behind the chain lock on her door.  She lives inside a death trap of a house, has a small child, and is on the brink of destitution. 

Amanda has spent a miserable night bundled up on the sofa, struggling to stay warm and keep her six-year-old daughter, Chloe, from freezing.  They have no heat, and the pipe that burst in the middle of the night spewed water that created an ice slick on her floors.  Now, this man who calls himself Jeb Sterling is demanding she go with him.  He says it is not safe for her and Chloe to stay in their home.  But she can't afford a hotel, and she certainly doesn't want to take Jeb up on his offer to stay at his house.  Even so, she has no choice if she wants to keep Chloe warm and safe. 

After reading the pink notes, Jeb knows Amanda has fled an abusive man, but he decides to keep it to himself.  She would be embarrassed if she knew what he read.  He instinctively wants to keep her safe.  Or kill the bastard who hurt her.  Jeb's home is large enough that Amanda and Chloe can stay for as long as necessary, but she refuses to be a burden, and Jeb is unable to persuade her otherwise.  Meanwhile, Amanda is somewhat comforted in the thought that she can earn her keep by cooking for Jeb.  Even so, every night she pushes a heavy dresser across the floor of the bedroom where they are sleeping, barricading the door before she and Chloe go to sleep.  This will have to do until the storm clears and she can go home again. 

SILVER THAW is a delightful and dramatic story of one woman's fight to flee the man who abused her and her daughter.  Jeb is an answer her prayers.  She savors his warm, safe home, and Chloe loves his dog, Bozo, a two hundred pound Mastiff with a lovable heart.  Jeb admires Amanda for her courage, but struggles with new feelings he's never experienced.  Until now, no woman has tugged at his heart strings the way Amanda does.  He wants her to stay safe, and the best way is to keep her in his home.  But how to tell Amanda he wants her to stay?  Jeb knows she will refuse, she's too proud to accept handouts and too gun-shy around men to accept more, besides, she's not even divorced yet.  As the story plays out, Jeb and Amanda are faced with the spine tingling danger from both the storm and Amanda's estranged husband. 

SILVER THAW is the first book in a new series, Mystic Creek , by Catherine Anderson, and it's a solid gold winner!  I haven't been able to find out any information on a second book, but SILVER THAW is a keeper.  Filled with palpable emotion, humor, and threatening danger, SILVER THAW is a novel full of tears and happiness.  It's A Perfect 10, just right for curling up on the sofa with!

Promo Spotlight: Juliet Chastain!

A short, hot, bedtime read with a lot of dominance, some ménage, and a little spanking—all in a moving vehicle.
 The inexperienced Miss V joins the mysterious and demanding Mr. A for a steamy fling. She's prepared to acquiesce to his every request, but when, in no time at all, things get down and dirty with a side of kink, she's shocked.
A short, torrid bedtime read.
For a moment, shocked, I open my mouth to object. I almost pull away. But I do not. I remember I must oblige him; I know I am only here to please him. Whatever he wishes to do to me, I must acquiesce. And crazily that knowledge makes me hotter, makes me passionately want him to continue.
I open my eyes and our gazes lock. I can't quite understand what I see in his eyes. It seems to be a mixture of triumph, amusement, and pleasure. Then, as he continues to plunge into me, it changes, and I am looking at lust personified.


Fashion photographer, Juliet Chastain, loves to tell stories and when she isn't creating a scenario with her camera, she's pounding out a tale on her keyboard. Just as she knows how to shoot models and clothes and make a story out of them, she can take a character or an idea that pops into her head and work them into a book

Juliet writes short romances—everything from a sweet-natured werewolf rescuing a nice woman in a bad situation (Cry of the Wolf) to the nameless woman fulfilling a naughty fantasy in Intruder.

Spotlight Review:

MEET ME IN SCOTLAND  - Patience Griffin 
A Kilts and Quilts Novel
ISBN: 978-0-451-46830-7
January 2015
Contemporary Romance

Gandiegow, Scotland  - Present Day

As Emma Castle's plane lands in Scotland she mulls over her immediate future. Brainy, straight-laced Emma, a marriage therapist, has just been fired over an interview she did that went viral. The daughter of two highly visible, prominent professionals, her mother, a leading sex therapist, and her father a renowned Hollywood marriage counselor, Emma's comment that she didn't think it unusual that some marriage therapists didn't believe in happily-ever-afters cost her her job and has infuriated her parents. So she has escaped to Scotland and the village where her best friend Claire lives. But her arrival in the midst of a blizzard gets off to a rocky start when Claire sends a friend to pick Emma up. Gabriel is well known to Emma, and she can't stand him.

Gabriel is doing his friends, Dominic and Claire, a big favor by driving from Gandiegow to Glasgow to retrieve someone who clearly doesn't like him. When she sees him, though, after ten years, Emma is stunned at the Scottish warrior who helps retrieve her bags. Now a physician, Gabriel is ruggedly handsome, tall, and imposing, but the two immediately start sniping at each other. Emma is not going to fall for someone just because of his looks, and Gabriel thinks that egghead Emma has not gotten any nicer personality-wise since Claire and Dominic's wedding ten years before.

Things don't get much better once they finally reach Gandiegow after an overnight stint in a rural cabin when the Land Rover is stuck in a ditch. Emma's whole idea of visiting Claire was because of her best friend's rock solid, happy marriage. But Claire and Dominic are sparring over whether to have a baby or not. Claire is determined, but Dominic knows their small restaurant in Gandiegow is too new to be making enough income to support a family. Then Emma gets snagged by the quilt ladies, headed by old Deydie. She's assigned to stitch the doctor's quilt, a tradition in the village when a new doctor moves in. Although the village has yet to welcome Gabe with open arms, tradition is tradition.

The Kilts and Quilts series continues with MEET ME IN SCOTLAND. Emma is at a turning point in her career, and the compact village and its eccentric citizens will steer her kicking and screaming in the right direction. Her feelings for Gabe are real, although she struggles to subdue them. As for Gabriel, he is through with his wild ways and just wants to settle down and be the town doctor. His heart is confused by Emma's behavior at times, but events will make things clear for both of them, thanks, in part, to the machinations of Deydie and other villagers.

Book one in the series, TO SCOTLAND WITH LOVE, is a great place to start, introducing many of the characters, but MEET ME IN SCOTLAND can certainly be read alone. This is a fun tale set in a fictional village that seems to have some magical qualities about it. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Romantic Suspense

Present Day Seattle and Cloud Lake, Washington

At the age of sixteen, Grace Elland suffered a horrific experience that has affected her life. She hops from job to job and has no permanence in her personal relationships other than her mother and sister. Now, just as she has finally found a career she is happy with as the marketing and social media specialist for successful self-help guru Sprague Witherspoon, her world comes crashing down again. She goes to her boss's home one day to see why he failed to come to work…and finds him dead in bed. Not only has the old nightmare come back to haunt her, but she's on the list of suspects for Sprague's murder. Just as bad, she starts getting emails every evening sent from the dead man's account.

Ten days later, help comes to Grace as a result of a blind date set up by her best friend and her husband. Julius Arkwright is an ex Marine who has made a fortune as a venture capitalist. He's immediately captivated by Grace and soon designates himself as her bodyguard.

What follows is a superb mystery with a complex plot and a fascinating relationship between two likable people whose dialogue sparkles. Add in a large cast of well done characters, many with hidden motivations, and we have romance, mystery and suspense. In other words, a Perfect 10 of a book.

Romantic Suspense

Seattle, and Cloud Lake, Washington - Present Day

Finding the murdered body of her boss means that Grace Elland is out of a job.  With the exception of the past eighteen months helping motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon promote the Witherspoon Way, Grace has held too many jobs for not long enough, so she decides to return to her hometown to try to figure out her future.  Discovering her boss's body has also meant a return of the nightmares from a similar event in her teens, and being back home has helped with that as well.  Between the eerie messages from Witherspoon's e-mail account that have been arriving since his death, and needing to find a new job, Grace has enough on her plate.  But her best friend has set her up on the most awkward of blind dates.

Venture capitalist Julius Arkwright may have agreed to the blind date with Grace to help out his buddy Devlin, but from the moment he sees her, Julius is intrigued.  Not since before his divorce has he been this interested in a woman, but it's obvious there are things happening in her life that she may need help with.  As the chief of police in Cloud Lake, his friend Dev has been kept up to date on the investigation into Witherspoon's murder, and has asked for Julius' take on Grace.  What Julius learns though, is that Grace is being stalked, possibly by the killer and, as improbable as it seems, there's some connection to the murder Grace stumbled across as a teen. He's always been a protective person, but the more Julius gets to know Grace, the more personal his desire to watch over her becomes.

An intriguing mystery, TRUST NO ONE brings together two people who seemingly couldn't be more different.  Grace is a true believer in the power of positive thinking and lives her life by the daily affirmations she helped to create for her boss.  Julius on the other hand believes in two rules: Trust no one and Everyone has an agenda.  Yet, the attraction they feel for each other is impossible to ignore, and as it becomes clear that someone is truly out to get Grace, things between the two heat up.  There are plenty of suspects in the murder of Witherspoon, and as the investigation continues, Grace is surprised time and again by the things she didn't know about her boss and even her co-workers.  Is it possible that one of the people she thought of as a friend is out to get her?  Pick up the riveting TRUST NO ONE to find out.
