Sun, Surf and Sex on the Beach by Tuesday Morrigan

Sun, Surf, and a summer affair...she just might experience all three, if he can keep her alive long enough.

Sun, surf, and a summer affair are the three things on Michaela Jameson's list of things to do while on vacation in Sydney, Australia. For years now beakers, Bunsen burners and hypotheses have been Michaela Jameson's whole existence. But her latest experiment just might cost Michaela her life. Determined to keep their star project alive, her employers hire Donovan Kelly to protect its most important asset, Michaela.

One look at Donovan and Michaela knows she's in trouble. With him guarding her twenty four seven she sees little chance of achieving her goals. One glance at what Michaela's hiding underneath her lab coat and Donovan knows he wants in. And judging by the heat between them, Donovan might just get his chance. That is if he can keep the sexy scientist alive long enough to cross everything off her to do list, wicked sex included.

Aloha Kaua by Jenna Byrnes

On her first trip to Hawaii, Michaela Donovan discovers lust and love in the most unusual place.

Aloha Kaua. May there be love between us. Michaela Donovan isn't sure about love, but she's looking for something on her first trip to the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Her week-long stay with a group of sales contest winners, real estate agents like herself, starts out as boring as the man from Sheboygan who has eyes for her. Desperate to squeeze some fun from the rest of her vacation, Michaela sets her sights on the handsome surfer she sees every time she turns around.

Kale Mahai hangs out on the beach, surfs, then hangs out on the beach some more. Michaela can't help noticing his silky, shoulder-length black hair and smooth, muscular chest. She can only imagine what's under his colourful board shorts, and spends a lot of time doing exactly that. Kale's blue eyes are enticing, his manner seductive. His style is totally different from anyone Michaela ever met in Chicago.

What happens in Oahu stays in Oahu, right? Michaela might as well enjoy herself. It's not every day she has a vacation from ordinary, and the Hawaiian-speaking hunk who turns her world upside down isn't the type to stick around forever. When Kale predictably disappears, Michaela's reaction, and response, surprise even her.

Honeymoon for Three by Christy Lockhart

Jilted! Left at the altar, Claire Cavanaugh runs away to hide, only to end up with the honeymoon of her life.

Running away had never been so good...

Intending to hide from the embarrassment of being left at the altar, Claire Cavanaugh goes on honeymoon alone, only to find two strappingly handsome Norwegian men, one a Norse god, the other a bear of a Viking, at her beck and call.

Finn Odegaard and Christian Petersen are as wild and rugged as the fjords they call home. The two have been looking for a third to complete their relationship and when Claire arrives alone, they can't believe their luck. This lovely lady is brave, bold, and has a sexily curvy body that makes them dream of a honeymoon, for three.

Reader Advisory: This story contains m/m intimacy as part of a polyamorous relationship.

Selene's Awakening by Jude Mason

Take a gorgeous, Canadian alpha male, who's fled the rat race and moved to the woods, and add an equally gorgeous, but spoiled, British woman with an attitude and buried submissive tendencies and what do you have? World War III? Love? Maybe a little of both?

Disillusioned with the world and all its civilised gadgetry, David Wolf moves to the wilds of Western Canada's forests. Selene Jordan, one of the rich and infamous, is from the UK. She has it all and isn't afraid to show it off, or berate anyone who doesn't have as much.

Selene is vacationing in Canada and manages to run her pretty blue sports car into a ditch, and knock herself out in the process. David finds and rescues her, much to his chagrin later. She tries ordering him around and refuses to do anything to help herself or make his life easier. Yet, David keeps his calm. After all, she's not going anywhere, and he's got a plan.

Will Selene learn to pull her own weight? Or will David have to teach her a lesson in proper guest etiquette? Sparks fly and emotions run hot as these two vie for the alpha position. A position that only one of them really wants.

Reader Advisory: This story contains sensual spankings and mild D/s.

Sex Therapy by Nadia Aidan

The good doctor may be the expert, but he proves himself the master, as he takes her on a sensual journey, filled with steamy, hot nights and plenty of sex therapy.

Dr. Elena Bouchere, an expert in women's sexuality, has just one tiny little secret, she's no expert! It's been two years since she's last had sex, which means most of her advice has nothing to do with personal experience, as she claims, and more to do with her own wild imagination.

And no one knows more about Elena's wild imagination than reporter Julien Bond, who just happens to be in possession of her very naughty, very explicit diary, which reveals all the sordid details of her fantasies, none of which she's ever brought to life. But Julien wants to rectify that, so he's made a list, and over the course of a weekend vacation at an exclusive fantasy resort, he begins each day with the promise of pleasure, and ends it with the fulfilment of one fantasy from Elena's diary, leaving her in anticipation of what he will do next.

The good doctor may be the expert, but Julien proves himself the master, as he takes Elena on a sensual journey, filled with steamy, hot nights and plenty of sex therapy.

Light on the Water by Mima

She sees the beauty of mixing silver with gold, and will fight to make him see it, too.

When Sid was twenty-two, a summer storm took her into the sea. And then a merman brought her back. Not content with his decision, she dedicates herself to finding him again, ruthlessly exploring the waters of Bermuda. He's the most beautiful thing she's ever seen, and every inch of her sings "yes" in his presence.

When she finds him again, her battle has just begun. For matches between their peoples do not often end happily...

Reader Advisory: This story contains anal sex and toy play.

Reviews, reviews, reviews

I've received some amazing reviews in the last couple of weeks and I thought I'd share a few snippets with you. If you'd like to read the full reviews, either go to the review sites, or check out my website.

Review for Spank Me Once

My contribution to this antho was:

Oh Behave! by Jude Mason

Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More had this to say:

I enjoyed this story immensely because of the strong emotions between Cathy and Nate. So often when I have read BDSM stories, the emotions have been left out, but Ms. Mason does a great job with showing them in this story. And of course, the sex is enough to singe your eyebrows! This is one story you do not want to miss.

Review for Spank Me Twice

Reviewed By: Janelle of You gotta read reviews
Rating: You Need/Want to Read

I liked this story. It was handled with a lightheartedness that is rather rare in BDSM. It also tackles that touchy subject of introducing spanking into a relationship. Even though the story itself is fairly short, the reader still gets a feel of the characters and their feeling for each other.

While there is no actual sex in this story, it is still very sexualized and leaves the reader wondering just who is dominate once the doors close.

And finally:

Review for Ethan's Choice

E. H., from Erotica Horizon Reviews had some very nice things to say about this book:

First thing that strike me was the loads of description the ladies uses in this book - everything had a smell, a taste, a feel and just a sense about it. It cemented a whole lot of the book and made everything more pronounced and lends an air to the drama that was happening behind the front desk of the Inn.

I am not sure if "Whiskers' Seaside Inn" is a real place but the description of the place is so clear and the little story that goes with it is so sweet.

The support characters they introduce us to are no fun - really they are moody, irritable and downright scary at times and i jumped a few time at some of the eeriness of the scenes - nicely done.

There was a nice mix of acceptance and paranoia to the entire happenings at the inn - which i thought was a good balance. It would have been too convenient if everyone accepted the spooky going on's behind the scene.

The paranormal element was well written, lots of back story, the eventual sightings, the scary and the mystery that surround them was a nice touch - i actually ended up liking these ghost a lot.

I was impressed with the fact that every time i think i have a handle on the plot - something new crops up. (The permanent guest, and ghost and Spirit revelation).

The ladies left us on a high and at a point that i had so many scenarios going through to my mind, but all in all i like the HEA for all involved.

That's about it. I know, enough too. LOL There's always a touch of fear when a review comes in. Will the book be accepted? Will the reviewer Get It, or will the book completely baffle them/turn them off, a dozen things. It's an amazing feeling when they say something nice.

Thank you to all those great reviewers out there.
