TJ_JagAfter an irresistible night of passion with Reya, Aaron James longs to hold her close forever. Little does he know that the tall, sleek beauty has a carnal secret — and he’s the one who needs protection.

Reya Daines has dedicated her life to the conservation of jaguars. With the only bed-and-breakfast at the entrance to Cockscomb Jaguar Sanctuary, she can keep an eye on poachers and still indulge her guests in her first love—scuba diving.

Aaron James can take care of himself, but he finds he’s not quite up to the job after his plane goes down in the jungles of Belize. The woman who rescues him is a loner just like him. When he learns she’s in danger from the same menace she’s saved him from twice, what’s a determined man to do with an equally stubborn woman?

ICYMI: New Releases by Sylvia Day, Milly Taiden

New Releases from Milly Taiden, Sylvia Day and more!

PARANORMAL

Carly Toblan had a little too much champagne at her best friend’s wedding. Now she’s found herself flirting with a hunky shifter who’s bent on showing her how much he wants her. She’s never been with a shifter but suddenly this curvy girl is hearing the call of the wild up close and personal.

Bear-shifter, Bastien Auberon, knows two things for sure. 1. Carly is his mate and 2. She doesn’t want to want him. Too bad because she does. And he’ll use that unquenchable desire to get her to be his. He’d never used sex to keep a woman before, but in love and war, anything goes.

With her father sending eligible men her way, and someone trying to take his mate from him, Bastien’s ready to roar in frustration. He has a lot to figure out before he can get Carly into a forever state of mind. Claiming a woman had never been this difficult. Good thing he’s so persistent and will let nothing stand in his way.

CONTEMPORARY

This is THE LAST book in the Crossfire series by Sylvia Day

I actually know Sylvia in real life. We met while we were both writing for Ellora’s Cave. I read the first Crossfire novel before it was picked up by a publisher and I was floored! It was the wildest, most dysfunctional, wonderfully crafted piece of writing I’d ever read. It was, in a word, AWESOME!

So pick it up. You won’t be sorry!
**************************
Gideon Cross. Falling in love with him was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. It happened instantly. Completely. Irrevocably.

Marrying him was a dream come true. Staying married to him is the fight of my life. Love transforms. Ours is both a refuge from the storm and the most violent of tempests. Two damaged souls entwined as one.

We have bared our deepest, ugliest secrets to one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all my flaws … and all the beauty I couldn’t see. He has given me everything. Now, I must prove I can be the rock, the shelter for him that he is for me. Together, we could stand against those who work so viciously to come between us.

But our greatest battle may lie within the very vows that give us strength. Committing to love was only the beginning. Fighting for it will either set us free … or break us apart.

Heartbreakingly and seductively poignant, One with You is the breathlessly awaited finale to the Crossfire saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers worldwide.

SCI-FI

Gabriel Buchanan is a fighter. Once a marine, now he’s an Admiral and lawyer for Alliance Fleet. He spends his time taking on the tough cases no one else dares to touch. His life changed course after a messy divorce, making him vow never to love again. Until a hot blonde who matches his drive to fight shows up on his watch. She’s a real wildcat–one Gabe wants to get up close and personal with.

Wildcat Lead Warrior, Kelis, has problems of her own keeping amorous young warriors at bay. But that’s the least of her troubles–she has a secret she wants to keep at all costs. For Kelis is not just any warrior but the daughter of a Warlord with impeccable bloodlines. To her dismay, her father gives her an assignment she can’t refuse–infiltrating Alliance Fleet.

Gabe is pissed when the beautiful but lethal Kelis puts his protection detail in the medbay. What will he do when he finds out she’s his now personal bodyguard?

Sparks fly and tensions run high because Wildcats do it better…A statement Gabe is more than happy to put to the test. All…night…long.

MENAGE-A-TROIS

Seafood Cravings

The other day I tweeted about a certain need I had. And it was a need that hit me hard. I mean, I was almost shaking with anticipation at the thought of getting this particular thing.

I’m talking about…LOBSTER!

Yes, it’s true that I’m having a forty-year affair with seafood, and lobster is one of my favorites. There are only two things that beat out a good steamed lobster, drenched in real butter — sashimi and king crab.

So what does this have to do with books? From one foodie to another, not a darn thing! However, my Twilight Teahouse series does have an amazing sushi chef named Landon. You can read his story in Luscious, Twilight Teahouse Book Two.

Here’s the book cover, followed by an easy recipe that my fellow lobster-lovers will enjoy!

LuciousIngredients
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 stalk finely chopped celery
1 finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
3 lobster tails cooked (about 1 pound lobster meat), chopped
Lemon slices & dry rub, for garnish
Lobster SaladDirections
1) Combine mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper, celery, shallot, tarragon and chives in a bowl.
2) Add lobster meat to mayonnaise sauce and combine.
3) Rub the rim of 4 martini glasses with a lemon. Dip the rim in some dry rub. Divide the lobster salad between the 4 glasses. Garnish with dry rub and lemon slices.

Thank you bunches!

To all of you who have supported the new release of the 12 Alphas 12 Months boxed set (featuring Succulent ~ A Twilight Teahouse Novel), you have my heartfelt thanks! And my goodness, check out this review left on Amazon!

“Great Set. Lots of Heat and spice. I enjoyed all the stories in the set. I wanted to read the Succulent story which had another volume to the Twilight Teahouse series.

  • Book 1 we met Solee and Burton.
  • Book 2 we met Mackenzie and Landon.
  • Book 3 we meet Madison and Kinson. I loved Madison and Kinson’s story.

    What really caught my interest is Kinson, who is determined to woo and romance his wife and he does just that…but with some serious HEAT and SPICE. But the wooing and romancing comes with at a cost.

    You have not one but two successful business’es run by two very driven people who until lately have had a successful and satisfying D/s relationship with Kuri. Kinson is a world renowed Yogi. Madsion owns and operates Twilight Teahouse, a restaurant that has some serious adult playrooms.

    Madison, Kinson and Kuri are trying to stay together but there are not enough hours in the day for all that encompasses their very busy lives. Kinson sensing that his wife Madison is about to shut down from stress, the business and from missing her travelling husband. Kinson comes home early from his latest trip to put his romance plan into motion. First, Kinson must thaw out Madison. She is in a mood from which no simple kiss and hug will do, Madison misses her husband, misses the interaction.

    Kinson comes up with special meals, massages and some serious couple time for him and Madison. He sets out to pamper her and show Madison that he does love and need her. However, in the midst of romancing Madison, Kinson has not shown any attention to their submissive, Kuri. As Madison and Kinson renew the spark in their marriage, Kuri is left out and thus seeks her own distractions.”
