NOW LIVE!

image

On a day like any other, Allyn Sommers went off to work, not knowing that her life was about to be irrevocably and horrifically altered. Three years later, Allyn is still a prisoner in her own home held captive by harrowing fear. Broken and damaged, Allyn seeks help from someone that fate brought her. Dr. Dominic Shriver is a psychiatrist who’s drawn to difficult cases. He must push past his own personal battles to help Allyn fight her monsters and nightmares. Is Dr. Shriver the answer to her healing? Can Allyn overcome the broken?

  “I haven’t done this in a long time,” I whisper timidly when he’s close.

The edges of Dominic’s mouth lift as the small smile that graces his lips is reflected in his eyes.

“We’ll take it slow. There’s no rush. Just move away if you want to stop.”

Right now, I just want to feel him. Feel his perfect, fevered lips on mine, feel myself give him control while I’m in his arms, and feel how very right this moment is.

With one hand around my lower back, he carefully runs his fingertips down my jaw, coaxing me to relax and just enjoy it. His lips expertly trail down my neck, and I move my head to the side, elongating my neck to give him more skin to touch.

“You’re lovely,” he mumbles as he worships my throat. With his palm slowly moving across my neck he smoothly pushes my hair away to fall down my back.

Slowly Dominic moves his head and presses a kiss to the hollow of my throat.

“Mmm.” A raw sound of pleasure escapes me.

Dominic’s tongue caresses the sensitive spot just below my ear.

“Oh God,” I whisper, wanting more of this. His hand tangles into my hair. “You have the most tantalizing lips, and I can’t wait to taste them. But this succulent skin on your neck is too mouth-watering to neglect,” he murmurs in my ear.

I’m caught up in delicious, foreign sensations. Feelings I never thought would happen to me again. 20140418-105519.jpg

I don't do 'normal'. I've found that the more I write, the more I like being different to other authors. I write in first person, and I love to challenge a reader. I take the normal and switch it around. For me, I really enjoy getting a reaction from a reader. So if I can evoke an emotion (regardless of if it's the emotion the reader wants) then I figure that I've done my job as an author I want to be. I really quite revel in taking people out of their comfort zones and pushing them to read something different. My genre of writing is, well quite frankly, where ever my mind goes. I won't label myself because I don't like sticking to one genre. My goal with writing is just to take people away from whatever is going on in their lives, even if it's only for a split second. I'm a go with the flow sort of person and don't really take a course of action to get where I am going. I live in the moment and don't usually worry about tomorrow because whatever life is due to bring me, I'll be happy to accept. I love my family and friends and will help anyway I can if someone needs it. I really don't like people that are nasty just because they can be, I don't believe that's necessary, I mean life's hard enough as it is! I hope you enjoy my books, I've had a hoot writing them. There's more to come..... Til next time. M xx

Schizoaffective disorder: a mental illness in which a person experiences a combination of mood disorder and schizophrenia symptoms.

I know about this illness—very well—because I suffer from it. It’s been four years since my diagnosis, and ever since, I’ve been living in a dark hole. Voices constantly invading my thoughts. Hallucinations. All of which force me to question if what I’m experiencing is even reality.
But here I am, still hanging on, still breathing and living through it.
That is, until he stumbled into my life. Logan Reed. I don’t want any part of him. I’ve pushed him away, but he isn’t easily deterred. I’ve told him I’m different, but he doesn’t care. He’s trying to slowly break me down. I’m trying just as hard not to let him. He doesn’t know how truly damaged I am; what will happen when he does?
I know the truth—he’ll never be able to look at me the same way again. Just like everybody else.

Lauren Blakely's AFTER THIS NIGHT release day launch May 12th!

We are thrilled to bring you the Release Day Launch for Lauren Blakely's AFTER THIS NIGHT! AFTER THIS NIGHT is the second full-length novel from her first Erotic Romance Series, The Seductive Nights Series!
After This Night

  AFTER THIS NIGHT EXCERPT: “I wish I were there wearing your clothes right now.” He laughed. “That’s what you want to be doing? Because I’d like to be fucking you if you were here.” “Well, that too. But then I’d put on your shirt.” “You like that, don’t you?” “I know you do too,” she said. “I do. Seeing you in my shirt and your heels is my kryptonite.” “Oh, is that it? That’s your kryptonite?” “Or maybe it’s just that you are,” he whispered, admitting more than he wanted to. “I think the same could be said here.” There was a pause, and though they were three thousand miles apart, the silence was heady. He was in a drugged-out state tonight. This woman was his pill, and closeness with her was what he craved most even as he feared she would destroy his heart. Smash it to a million tiny pieces and eat it for lunch. But he had a built-in barrier in distance, and with no trips to San Francisco on his immediate calendar he saw nothing wrong with this temporary moment of relief from the pressure inside of him from wanting her. They couldn’t be together in any meaningful way, and he couldn’t get hurt if he didn’t actually see her. Right? Right, he answered for himself. “What are we doing, Julia?” he asked, and he was sure she could hear the longing in his tone, but he didn’t care. There was no need to hide it after they’d just broken down and pleasured themselves together. “I wish I knew,” she said, her voice wistful and full of yearning. “I really wish I knew.” He heaved a sigh, trying to sort out his thoughts, but his brain was a mixed-up mess and he didn’t know how to untangle all the threads. Or if he wanted to remain tangled up with her instead. “What are you going to do when we hang up?” he asked, changing direction. “Read a book.” “What are you reading these days?” “A crazy story about a guy who treks across Antarctica.” “That does sound crazy.” “Yeah. He’s kind of hallucinating and talking to penguins right now,” she said with a small laugh. “Can you blame him? I have to imagine if you’re stuck in the polar ice cap that talking to penguins might be a rare source of comfort.” “As long as he doesn’t eat the penguins I’ll keep reading it.” “Here’s to no penguin meals in the books we read.” “What will you do?” “I suspect I will fall fast asleep and dream of a beautiful redhead on the other side of the country.” “She would like that dream very much,” she said in a sweet voice, the kind that worked its way beneath all the hard edges in him, and settled deep in his heart. “Will I talk to you again soon?” He took a fueling breath, and put his armor back on, steeling himself. “I don’t know the answer to that.” ATN Purple Teaser 
  About AFTER THIS NIGHT: This is the conclusion of Julia and Clay's story that began in the New York Times Bestseller Night After Night. "Why do you like me tied up sometimes?" "Because the way I feel for you is so out of control that this is one way for me to feel in control again." Their world was passion, pleasure and secrets. Far too many secrets. But Clay Nichols can't get Julia Bell out of his mind. He's so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that he can't focus on work or business. Only her. And she's pissing him off with her hot and cold act. She has her reasons though-she's trying to stay one step ahead of the trouble that's been chasing her for months now, thanks to the criminal world her ex dragged her into. If only she can get out of this mess, then maybe she can invite the man who ignites her back in her life, so she can have him-heart, mind and body. He won't take less than all of her, and the full truth too. When he runs into her again at her sister's wedding, they have a second chance but she'll have to let him all the way in. And they'll learn just how much more there is to the intense sexual chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night... Please note: This book is intended for 18+ due to dirty talk, light bondage, and lots of sexy scenes.

The Madame by M. Robinson Blog Tour



Some people need love…

I need sex, money, control, and power.

Anyone could have those four things, but only one could have VIP. Becoming Madam was never a choice for me, it was a mandated order from the most powerful woman I knew- my mother. I was born to fill her shoes, never to make mistakes, or to show weakness.


You are the product of your environment. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; you learn from what you see, not from what you're told. Nature vs. Nurture. I learned from it all; what I saw, what I didn't see, what I was told, and from reading between the lines.

I was raised with the belief that the world spun ONLY because of me. I held power as far back as I can remember, saw things no one ever talks about, and witnessed illegal acts of sex, drugs, and money by the time I was eighteen.

You saw a glimpse of me in VIP, now see it from the beginning. Enter my world where anything goes; no judgments, no remorse, no guilt. You play by my rules, or you don’t play at all. There are no limits to what I can do, or to what I can show you…I will ensure my legacy my any means necessary.

My name is Lilith Veronica Stone, and I am The Madam.


Warning: Book contains adult situations.
Dark content/sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.

 ** Available May 19th 2014! **








The Madam
By M Robinson
The Madam did not disappoint. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Madam’s story. I am usually not a lover of “back stories” or flash backs but M Robinson wrote the story of Madam perfectly. I was completely absorbed and entertained throughout the whole book and couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what made this woman “tick”.
Lilith Stone, the one and only Madam from book one of the VIP Series was born to become a VIP. Her mother groomed her from a very young age to become the charming, cold, calculating Madam we loved to hate in VIP. M Robinson had me craving more of Lilith’s story, I needed to know the circumstances that made her they person she became. WOW…did she deliver.  
“I cried for everything….
For my past…
For my present…
And most of all.
For my future……” 
M. Robinson evokes many emotions from telling Lilith’s story; first and foremost… it is hot! If you thought VIP was shocking, The Madam will have you blushing in the corner. But, it is also a story of love, loss, triumph, and grief. The twists and turns of the story are truly something that kept me intrigued. I can’t wait to see where M. Robinson takes us in her next installment of the VIP Series. Bravo M! <3 Tonya






**Before you read The Madam, be sure and read book 1: VIP**




 32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious boat. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving childhood with only a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession, that was until he saw her. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn't control no matter how hard he tried.

Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn't have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her ensuring her success as a VIP.



There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both.

An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love-will it be enough?

Teaser
From Elijah’s point of view
On our way down, I managed to support her head and bent my knees in an effort not to crush her. That didn’t feel good to my knees or my hands at all. Since Alex didn’t move a muscle, I didn’t know how much of my weight landed on her, or if she was hurt. All I felt now was my upper body touching hers.
        “Alex, you okay? Did I hurt you?” I murmured, looking at her.
She didn’t answer. Instead, her shocked eyes stared back at me. Those angelic blue eyes sucked me in so deep, I became lost in them. I was hypnotized, spellbound by her beauty and the eyes that held so much mystery, making me want to get to know her.
When her eyes shifted to my lips, I could feel my dick straining against my pants. Cool small breaths escaped her mouth into mine, and I swallowed them up—every single breath. Her body entangled in my arms, her breath became ragged. Her chest rose and fell quickly, and mine was doing the same. I’d like to think I was the cause of her rapid breathing. In that moment, I lost all sense of time…space…and reality.
I don’t know how long we were connected like that, but I almost lost my self-control when my lips headed towards hers as if they had a mind of their own. Fuck! I wanted to kiss her. We were in another world and everyone around us disappeared, but then, a part of my conscience reminded me that she was Jimmy’s cousin. God I really hated that voice right now!
        Thank goodness, Seth broke our link. “You guys okay? And would you stop molesting her on the ice?”
        I rolled my eyes at him. “Shut up and help me. I hurt my knees,” I said out loud, so the crowd around us could hear me. I had to make an excuse as to why I stayed on top of her so long, when I could have gotten up.
