Ho, Ho…Whoa! A Surprise New Release from Clarissa Wild (@wildclarissa)

Happy Forever After Darkness
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: December 14, 2016


A return to the dark side …

Four stories, intertwined by fate.

There is nothing these men and women won’t do for the love they fought so hard to keep.

Three years have passed since their worlds collided, but their stories have yet to end.

As Daniel and Ava learn to cope with their new reality, they decide to take the ultimate step toward freedom, but it’s not without cost.

For Angel and Sky, returning to the place where they met isn’t without regrets.

While Viktor and Alexis discover an old friend has disappeared, they uncover something they weren’t prepared for.

And while Phoenix and Vanessa are blissfully unaware of what’s about to go down, there’s at least one person who will always have their back …

An old friend no one saw coming.

This is a novella. It’s NOT a standalone. It’s recommended to read the following books first: Stalker, Twenty-One, Ultimate Sin, and Viktor. Make sure to also check out Mr. X, the book that started it all!

Her eyes are closed, and by the time he presses another soft kiss on her cheeks, she’s already fallen asleep.

Only then does he finally look up at me with a crooked, loving smile. “What?”

I shrug. “Nothing.” Then I turn around and walk back to our room.

I hear his footsteps behind me as he chases me through the hallway, walking faster until he catches me right before I reach our bed.

“Gotcha!” I squeal as he grabs my waist from behind and wraps his arms around me as we both fall down onto the bed.

“Asshole,” I mutter as he rolls me around and crawls on top of me.

“Who me? Nah.” He grins as he leans in and whispers, “Scared you good, didn’t I?”

“No,” I say, pursing my lips. “How could I be scared of someone who just read this sweet story to a little girl?”

He squints, still smiling. “I saw you watching me …”

“I know you did. And you know what else? You’re just one big, cuddly teddy bear. And they’re not scary.”

“Oh … really now?” He pins my hands above my head. “We’ll see about that.”

His mouth latches onto mine, and he kisses me hard as his body hardens above me … along with his dick. And Jesus, does it feel good. His hand runs down my arm, tickling as he reaches my waist, but he doesn’t stop there. He goes all the way down, pulling my leggings with him as he goes.

“Angel, this isn’t—”

“Shh …” he murmurs as he rips down my pants in one go and then throws off his own shirt along with it. When I see his buffed pecs and abs, I always lose the words I was about to say.

“Just let it happen …”

“Won’t she hear?” I mutter as he drops down on top of me and kisses my neck.

“She’s fast asleep. I made sure of that.” He licks my earlobe and sucks on it. “So let’s focus on making a second one.”

“What?” I gasp, laughing in shock.

“Well, if one isn’t enough, we could always try for twins.”

I slap him on the arm and grin as he kisses his way down my chest, pulling up my shirt along with it.

“If that’s your way of seducing me, it isn’t working,” I say.

“Aww … too bad because I was really looking forward to sticking my junk where it belongs.”

I burst into laughter. “You did not just say that.”

“I’m a bad liar …” he replies, taking my nipple into his mouth and sucking hard. “Guess I’m going to have to stop then.”

I moan in response. “No … keep going.”

His fingers dive between my thighs, but I’m already wet from just his mouth. “You sure about that?”

“Yes,” I moan as he fingers me.

“Does this feel like I’m a cute fucking teddy bear?” he growls, grasping my hand and bringing it to his cock.

“No … this feels like something I want inside me … now.”

He licks his lips and smiles. “Good. Because I won’t stop until you’re begging me for it.”

Blog Tour with Review: THE PAWN by Skye Warren (@skye_warren)

The Pawn

by Skye Warren
Publication Date: December 6, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Google Play


Today is Gameday!  Are you ready to play? 

I was not prepared for this match.  Score one for author Skye Warren.  The Pawn will move and capture your excitements at its core. What an intellectual dark romance!!  It’s complete with sophisticated characters who jump from the pages and strikes you in the heart. 

Prepare yourself for a world of secrets, lies and deceit. The Pawn is told from the female’s POV, Avery James.  She had the perfect life until the unthinkable happen.  Now she must risk everything to help save her family – her father.   The story’s strength lies in Gabriel’s disturbing battle between lust and vengeance toward Avery and her father.  I desperately hope we get Gabriel’s POV in the future.

The title of the series, ENDGAME is derived from the concept of a chess game as you may now know.  It’s a tale of fiction that oozes with brilliance, emotion and intrigue.  The concept and the execution of the drama is perfectly timed like the game itself. 

Chess players know the pieces of the game:  KING, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn.   The gameboard represents the battlefield where the pieces fight.  The king is the most importance piece in the game.  You always protect the King. Therefore, the goal of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s King, meaning the king is put into check and cannot get out of the check. 

Huh? What?! Yeah that’s what I think.  I am not a chess player.  I wish I was a chess player.   I am in awe of the concept.  This latest release from author Skye Warren has me adding a chess game to my Christmas wish list.  Like me, you will crave to understand the game of chess itself to take this epic journey with Avery and Gabriel. 

The Endgame Series will be one of the most well-crafted highly anticipated releases for 2017.   It excites me just thinking about it.   We will crave more of the character’s actions and how they intersect metaphorical with the game pieces.   Plus, the ending will reveal an unexpected plot twist.

IMHO, The Pawn illustrates  how to never underestimate what a woman  can do.


The price of survival…

Gabriel Miller swept into my life like a storm. He tore down my father with cold retribution, leaving him penniless in a hospital bed. I quit my private all-girl’s college to take care of the only family I have left.

There’s one way to save our house, one thing I have left of value.

My virginity.

A forbidden auction…

Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld.

Except he’s playing a deeper game than I know. Every move brings us together, every secret rips us apart. And when the final piece is played, only one of us can be left standing.

THE PAWN is a full-length contemporary novel from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.

EXCERPT from Wicked Bride Games 



His hand is suddenly on my leg, slithering upward. “Tell me you don’t like me.”
“I don’t,” I say with an indifferent voice.
But all he does is burst into laughter.
“You can fool them, but you can’t fool me.” I suppose by them, he means the other girls.
“It’s true,” I add, trying to make it more believable.
His laughter stops, and his face turns dark. “No, it’s not.”
“I hate you,” I say.
His fingers curl around my thigh in a possessive manner. “Lie.”
“What do you want me to say?”
“The truth. Be brave.”
I shrug, trying not to let him get to me, even when he does. “I just want the money that you offered me.”
“Uh-huh …” His fingers inch up even further until they’re right below my pussy. “But you need to marry me for that. And for me to want to marry you … I have to pick you.” He leans in and whispers in my ear, “So you’d better start giving me a reason to want to marry you.”
I suck in a breath as his tongue wets my skin, drawing a line from my ear down my neck. I’m trying not to shudder; honestly, I am, but this motherfucker makes it so hard for me to ignore my body’s response to his touch.
“Admit you like being touched by me … Maybe I’ll pick you if you do,” he whispers, pressing a kiss to my neck.
“Fine. I can’t deny the physical reaction my body has to your advances.” I glance at him sideways. “Happy now?”
His lopsided smile makes me shake my head. How am I supposed to keep resisting his charms when he keeps looking at me like that? Like I’m the only one of the eight girls he really wants to get to know?
“It’s a start …” he muses.
“Why are you so intent on me being attracted to you? Is it that important? I mean you have seven other girls waiting in line, dying to get that fifty million—”
“I don’t want them,” he interrupts, and he reaches for a strand of my hair and tucks it behind my ear. “I want you.”

New Release Review: THREE SWEET NOTHINGS by Nikki Sloane (@authorNSloane)


Three Sweet Nothings by Nikki Sloane is LIVE!

“[A]dventurous readers will discover that Sloane is one of the best in the genre.”- The Washington Post

4 KINK Review

Source: Advance Reader Copy kindly gifted by author/publisher/PR 

THREE SWEET NOTHINGS is a sexy and red-hot read and the second chance romance story line enhances the Blindfold Series.  From the beginning, fans of the series will welcome the clothes coming off immediately.  Told from the dual POV’s of Kyle and Ruby, the plot is fueled with trust issues.   

Kyle finds himself in the last place he ever wanted to be and managed to escape –  working for his father.  Circumstances in New York provided enough stimulus to bring him back home to Chicago.  While working as the attorney on a high-profile divorce case, it brings him back to his college sweetheart – Ruby on the opposing counsel’s side.    Years ago, Ruby and Kyle broke up under the worse of circumstances.  And it’s going to take some serious negotiations for each of them to believe they can have a life together.

As attorneys, they handle the situation in the only way they believe can work: as a sexual contract.  Fans will see shades of grey in the story line and it’s not a bad thing.  We get to witness a DOM in training and that’s what threw me more into the spicy story line.  One word to describe the training:  SCORCHER.    

We are treated with all the delicious bites of  dirty talk and carnal desires to keep the toes-curling and the breathing shallow.  Plus the book surprises with its metaphorical approach to baking macaroons – a very tasteful treat.   It’s a must-read for those who enjoy their KINK with couples.

Five years ago, we’d been together and on fire, but the flames burned us both. Now she’s back in my life and is all my wildest fantasies in the flesh.

I want her. The desire is too powerful to argue against, but I’m not interested in what we had. This is an arrangement about pleasure and finding out who we are behind closed doors. There won’t be talk of love or any sweet nothings whispered by either of us.

This time, I’ll control the heat between us and make sure neither of our hearts get too close to the flames.

FERAL by Jenika Snow (@jenikasnow)


She’s about to find out exactly how much he wants her…


I’ve been fascinated with him for years.

He’s wild and lives alone, and everyone has been smart enough to keep their distance.

Except me, that is.

Until now.

I see something in him that I see in myself, and I want to explore that. He’s untamed and raw, and maybe dangerous.

But that’s exactly what I need.

It’s what I want.


She shouldn’t have come to me, but now that she’s here, I can’t let her go.
I don’t do well around others, so going off the grid has been for the best.

What Lexi doesn’t know is that I’ve noticed her for years and wanted her as mine for just as long. It would be safer if I kept her at a distance, which I’ve managed to do … but I can’t anymore.

I won’t.

I hope she’s ready to be mine, because she’s about to see exactly how feral I can be where it concerns her.

Warning: This book is wild and dirty, short and smutty. Sure, it’s unbelievable, and features a celibate recluse who will make the woman he wants his at all costs, but who doesn’t like it that way? If you are into an over the top alpha hero, and some filthy goodness, dive in.
I tracked.

I hunted.

I killed for my meals.

It was the life I chose to live, the way I decided to survive. The supplies I got from town were nonperishables and essential hygiene products. But meat, protein … that I found on my own. That I worked to get.

I also came down to get my disability check. It didn’t allow me to live in luxury, but then again I didn’t want to. I was a simple man with simpler needs.

I moved through the forest silently, making sure to scan my surroundings. I’d been tracking a deer for the last hour. It was close. I could feel the fear in the air, the fact that it knew it was being tracked.

I’d been doing this long enough this was second nature to me, something that was a part of me. For more than a decade I’d been out here, by myself. Being around people wouldn’t do me any good. With my brother gone and no other family, I was alone. But I had become used to it.

But wanting Lexi and knowing I could have her were two very different things.

And I would have her.
I stopped, listening. I heard the deer to my left and started going that way. My bow was at my side, my body ready, my heart rate slow, steady.

I was close to the path that led all the way up to my cabin, and moved toward it. And then I saw the animal. I crouched low, partially hidden behind a large tree. I got my bow ready.

Its head was raised, and its ears twitched. It knew I was here, but didn’t know where or how dangerous I was. This wasn’t a game to me. This was survival, food.

I was about to take aim when the sound of a female moan had me freezing. The deer ran off and I cursed, but the sound came again and I rose up and made my way toward it. I was close enough to see the path, but I didn’t see anyone on it.

And then I saw her.


Out here in the middle of nowhere.


I attached my bow to my back and made my way quickly toward her. My heart was at a steady pace, but every instinct in me was roaring to get to her. I needed to protect her.
I crouched in front of her and instantly saw the blood on her temple. She was on her belly, the rock she must have hit just an inch from her skull. She moaned again, but her eyes were closed.

I didn’t think about anything else but getting Lexi to my cabin and making sure she was okay. Town was too far away, and I wanted her surrounded by my things while I tended to her.

excerpt from Mr. Match 

I stand in front of the tub, each of the three cameras already recording, and shrug the details off with my robe. Once the silky fabric slides over my shoulders it slips down my body in a silent whoosh of air, and makes a soft green puddle of fabric at my feet.

I say nothing. I will say nothing. Let him guess what I’m thinking.

It’s only fair. I’ve been guessing what he’s been thinking since we parted ways four years ago.

I pose for the camera. Something I do naturally now. Taking a moment to imagine myself staring into his eyes. I forgo the pouty lips and play air-kisses and just stand there. Let him appreciate me. Let him think about all the days and nights we’ve been apart. Let him wonder what I’ve been doing.

I start fondling my breasts, pinching my nipples to make them hard and bunched. My nails are just long enough, and the steam inside the bathroom just hot enough, to leave red marks on my fair skin.

He likes that. He likes the animalistic nature of sex.

I find myself unconsciously biting my lip and stop.

I am not a weak little girl. I am not trying to seduce him, or entice him, or make him want me.

He already wants me.

None of that play-acting stuff matters with Oliver Shrike. Everything with him needs to be genuine.

One hand continues to lightly scrape the skin of my breasts, while the other tracks down my ribcage with just enough pressure to make marks. It slips easily between my legs and only then do I let myself become aroused.

My lips part as my mouth opens. My heart beats faster. My skin prickles up, even though the heat in this room leaves no room for chills.

I will not moan for him. Not on camera. If he wants more he needs to come to me.

But I do enjoy it.

When the tips of my fingers find the sweet spot I smile and rub a little faster.

Do you like that? I want to ask him. Do you enjoy looking at me? Watching me? Do you want more? Do you want to feel me again? My body, my breath on the tip of your cock?

I come. Silently. He might not even notice, that’s how quiet I am.

And then I open my eyes and smile as I step into the tub. Sink down into the frothy white bubbles and let the hot water burn me. Turn my pale skin red, make my cheeks flush, relax my muscles, and ease my worries.
