Review of ‘Secret Masquerade’ by Anne Hagan

Mel is my favourite character from my favourite series – The Morelville Mysteries. So when I discovered that Anne Hagan had written an erotic short featuring the sexy sheriff, I just had to have it. 

The story piqued my interest right away. It had just the right amount of tension and mystery . The writing was wonderfully descriptive and enticed me further into the tale. I was desperate to know where it was going. The erotic teases were so well done and blended in perfectly with the mystery element . It was compelling.  And so, so hot!

I loved this story. It captured Halloween to a  T.  But for me having Sheriff Mel Crane in an erotic situation was amazing. I’ve been waiting a long time for this and Anne Hagan didn’t disappoint. Brilliant!

Review of ‘Hard Body’ by Renee Roman

Hard body by Renee Roman is a short erotic story that has some beautiful emotional moments. Sharon’s been taking care of her sexual needs, but it’s more fun with a partner. Will she ever get it on with the object of her fantasies? This was a lovely story that took time to get to know the characters. I enjoyed it and would like more of these ladies.

Review of ‘Code of Conduct’ by Cheyenne Blue

coe

Women’s tennis, the Australian outback, love, passion and hot sex. What more could one ask from a lesbian romance? Cheyenne Blue has written another heart-achingly beautiful love story,  with all of the intense feelings, the desire and the ache of a forbidden relationship. Viva Jones just wants to keep winning but her injured wrist makes it look unlikely. It doesn’t help that she feels cheated out of her last match by a bad call from a line judge. Meeting up with said tennis official brings out a side in her that she doesn’t recognise. Can she ever get past it and admit that she rather likes Gabriela Mendaro? Maybe more than likes her. Even if she can forget the line call, relationships between players are officials are forbidden. I really enjoyed this story. I could feel the need the two women had for each other. The want was palpable. The background of the women’s tennis circuit made it all the more interesting for me. Viva’s outback life was fascinating and I love that aspect of  Cheyenne Blue’s novels. The women were operating on very different levels of the game and they both had to find a way of understanding the effect their relationship could have on the other’s professional life. ‘Code of Conduct’ was a lovely story and sure to fill many a heart with joy.

Review of ‘Roll With Me’ by Elizabeth Andre

A well written erotic romance that deals with the tricky issue of whether one should tell a new lover everything early on in a relationship. Chloe has MS but since it’s not always that obvious she chooses not to tell Rachel. Is that a mistake and can they survive the deception? Elizabeth Andre knows how to write well rounded characters and very hot situations. I liked Chloe and could see why she made the decisions she did. Her attraction to Rachel was intense and that really came across. I enjoyed it.

Review of ‘Changing Perspectives’ by Jen Silver

Portrait woman

 

This book really surprised and, I have to say, educated me. I don’t usually read or review BDSM and this book was advertised as the first foray into that area by Jen Silver. Although it deals with the subject it is a gentle introduction and there’s nothing in it to scare the horses!

Dani Barker is a prodigiously talented art director with a penchant for leather and whips. Through work she meets Camila Callaghan, an in the closet finance director who seems like the last person on Earth she would have anything in common with. Their attraction is instant and leads to some very interesting interactions. I really liked Dani. She was a very interesting character with some unusual interests and a unique way of living her life. Camila seemed liked an ice queen but she was so hot. Their story is one of realising what you really want and the quest to connect with that special person. One that accepts you and can give you what you need. It was very sexy but with an emotional intensity that really attracted me. The story was set in 1993 and it made it all the more interesting as there were many things we take for granted regarding equality and inclusion that were missing then. The other people around them at work and in their personal lives were fascinating.  I liked Dani’s friend Penny as she was supportive, if a bit despairing at times. I loved it.

Review of ‘Heart’s Surrender’ by Emma Weimann

weimann

What started off as a hook up between gorgeous butch Sam and widowed mother of two Gillian turned out to be oh so much more. It was sweet and extremely hot. The sex scenes were very well written and had an intensity that takes the breath away. I believed in the passion and the fact that it was more than just sex. The emotions evoked were joyful. They each had to decide what was truly important and whether they were willing to fight for it. Gillian had a lot to lose – or so she thought. Sam’s vulnerability was heart- wrenching and I wanted her to get the girl.

A really enjoyable read that I can highly recommend .
