button excerpt

A shiver ran through me. I was chained up in his basement. I’d never been restrained in such a way before. Madam never resorted to such means since she knew I never would’ve run. I had no desire to live free of enslavement. It was all I knew and all I wanted. However, feeling the cool breeze in the room and the even colder restraints on my skin made me wonder if maybe I had thought wrong all along.
“I can see from the look on your face that you’ve never been locked up before, and I see that’s where Madam went wrong with you. No, you didn’t want to escape, but you don’t know how to behave. No, you don’t truly know the extent to which a punishment can go. Don’t worry, that is going to change starting now. This will throw a wrench in my initial plans for you, but I refuse to let you go now. You are mine and will be forever, so get used to the idea.” Matteo leaned against the wall in front of me, sliding his hands into his pockets as if we were carrying on a completely normal conversation. He appeared entirely at ease while I struggled with all the new emotions flooding me. After a moment of staring at me, he pushed off the wall and stood close enough I could feel his body heat.
He reached down to pull his erection from his dress slacks. Sliding his hand over it slowly, he dragged the tip over my mouth.
“Suck it. Get me off and I’ll leave you alone for the remainder of the night. Fail to do so and I will start your punishment now,” he said as he shoved the hot, hard, musky flesh into my mouth.
I wanted to cry out that I thought the lashings from the belt had been my punishment. Instead, I sucked him down my throat and bobbed my head along his length the way he’d shown me he liked it done. The longer I sucked, the more my lips became numb and the more I realized that I really had no idea what being a slave was like.
Finally, he groaned and his release filled my mouth and throat before he pulled back. As he tucked himself into his pants again he yanked my hair so I was forced to look him in the eye.
“Welcome to the Italian Mafia way of life, bella.”

button About the author
Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work.
I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category.
I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next.
Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.

RELEASE BLITZ - Love After Pain by Torrie Robles

Title: Love After Pain
Author: Torrie Robles
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: August 23, 2015


I didn’t want to fall in love. Love wasn’t included in the plan I had laid out for myself. My plan was simple; go to school, graduate and become the most well-known corporate law attorney on the west coast. I had it all right in the palm of my hand until the day I heard her voice, saw her smile, and fell in love with the most gorgeous set of emerald eyes.

Love hits you like a Mac truck and you’re done for. Out of nowhere, you meet the person you can’t see living your life without. Then an actual Mac truck hits you and rips your love away, taking your life right along with it. One moment she was there, the next I was left with my daughter and my newborn son. My daughter will only know her mother by the memories in her young mind and my son? He will never know her. He will never feel what’s it’s like to have the love of his mother because she was dead before he took his first breath.

My love for my wife was replaced by anger. Anger that this was my life, anger that my children will grow up without her, anger that I asked her to join me the first day I met her, when I should have just sent her away. If I had sent her away, if I had kept to my plan, then she'd still be alive. She would be able to watch her own children grow, but I didn’t and now she’s gone. They say I'll move on. They say there's love after the pain.

They say I'll learn to love again, but I can’t. I can’t give my heart to someone else when my wife took it with her.

Book Blurb

When fame is a bitch... Love is all that matters.

Being a big star has it perks, but Caden Carlisle is in love with his costar, Brooklyn Halloway, and the movie studio demands they keep their romance quiet to ensure big box office success.

Cade always disliked the spotlight, preferring to focus on the work, but coupled with the ruthless stalking of the rabid paparazzi, the secrecy forced upon his new and fragile relationship, and the vindictive games of others, celebrity status turns into a curse.

Can the roller coaster of emotions bring them closer still, or will jealousy and distance rip them apart forever?

Kahlen Ay,es turns up the heat and cranks up the angst in FAMOUS Novel Two; the continuation of Cade and Brook's incredible love story...

Because there's more to fame than meets the eye.



Okay, now I was getting worried. Brook told me the day before she'd call before she left New York and it was 6 PM and I hadn't heard a word from her. This day had gone completely to hell from the moment I woke up this morning. My fucking head was pounding like a jackhammer and it hadn't stopped all day. Couple that with ten bloody unanswered phone calls to Brook, and it couldn't get any worse.

I had one hell of a hangover courtesy of the multiple shots of whiskey I’d consumed the night before. So many, I couldn't even remember how in the bloody hell I got back to my flat last night. I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't be with Brook, and maybe I'd let it get a little out of hand. I wasn't usually one to go off the deep end but where she was concerned, my emotions ran raw.

The whole night was a bloody blur besides a few highlights, if you could call them that; Wendy annoying the shit out of me at the bar, the loud music endlessly throbbing in my head, signing a few autographs, and a ridiculous amount of drinking.

Brook, I'm getting worried now. Please call me back. I sent a text since she wasn't answering the calls.

In about thirty seconds I would be forced to call Jeanne or Diane to find out what the bloody hell was up. What if something had happened to her? My heart thumped inside my chest, and the panic I'd been fighting all damn day, rose up anew.

I tried to relax and unpack some of the boxes of books and clothes my mother had shipped over from London. Another hour passed by at a snail’s pace. I tried to make myself a sandwich, mostly because eating was what I thought that I should do.


I wasn't hungry anyway. This was the longest I'd gone without some sort of contact with Brook since we met. I was going out of my mind with worry.

What the fuck was going on?

I pulled out my phone and dialed Jeanne, Brook's manager. She’d accompanied her to New York, so surely she’d know where my girl was.

"Hello? This is Jeanne." Her voice was a little frantic as she answered.

"Jeanne, its Cade."

"Oh, Cade! Have you heard from Brook?"

"What?” My heart fell. “No! That's why I'm calling, to see if you have. I haven't heard from her since yesterday morning, very early." I felt the bile rise up in my throat.

"Cade, she isn't answering her phone. I spoke with Pat Armstrong and apparently Brook did go to see him this morning, but she's checked out of the hotel and I don't know where she went after that. I thought she'd come home, but Diane hasn't heard from her either. I'm really worried. This isn't like her at all."

My breathing sped up and I paced back and forth across my living room.

"Why aren’t you with her, Jeanne? I thought you went with her?”

“I was. I am. I’m still in New York, but Brook left, she was supposed to fly back early today. It’s a long story.”

“That makes no bloody sense! Someone better tell me what the hell is going on, and fast! I'm out of my mind; worried sick! She never does this. We generally talk several times a day and it's been thirty-six hours since the last conversation. What can I do? Should we call the police? What?"

My heart was beating so fast I felt it would fly right out of my chest and my mind was racing. Why would Brook leave and then come back. I wanted to know the details but I was more concerned with finding her.

"We can't call the police yet. It hasn't been 24 hours since someone's seen or heard from her. We have to wait until tonight. You might try calling some of her friends. Maybe David has heard from her." I knew she was grasping at straws, looking for any possibility, but damn it, the mention of his name made my blood boil.

I signed heavily and ran an impatient hand threw my already messy hair. "Okay, I'll call around. If you hear anything, please let me know immediately. When we find her, I’ll expect full disclosure on what fuck went on and why you don’t know where she is!" I felt my throat tighten and the blood rush through my ears.

Jesus Christ, this is a nightmare.

“She’s an adult! She can do what she wants, and I can’t tell you anything she doesn’t want you to know! I’m her manager not yours, Cade.” Jeanne’s voice elevated and I could hear the panic behind her words. She was right. She couldn’t tell me anything Brook didn’t approve.

RELEASE BOOST - Heart Breaker by Cole Saint Jaimes

Title: Heart Breaker
Series: Heart Breaker #1
Author: Cole Saint Jaimes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: August 18, 2015





Get high.

Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.

Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.

Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.

When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it. And this time there’s no getting out of it.


A warm bed.

A steady job.

A brother who loves her.

For Essie Gray, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.

Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.

Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?

After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…
