Review: Taming Travis

Taming Travis
Taming Travis by Stacey Espino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cassidy is convinced that Travis will never open up to her. He’s fun, flirty, and does delicious things to her body—but doesn’t offer his heart. When they’re forced to hole up in an old weather station for the night, it gives her time to really get to know the dirty-blond miner. Can she break through his tough exterior and tame the man beneath?

Travis finds it safer to coast along on the surface of life. He never planned to invest himself emotionally in anyone beyond his new pack, but Cassidy is making it difficult. His alpha has chosen her, and Travis wants her. If only he could trust the little human, and himself, enough to embrace what he really desired.

Matthew's Return
Matthew's Return by Stacey Espino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life in Climax is anything but ordinary. Cassidy does things with her four men she only ever dreamed of, but as the days pass, she craves more than just sex. She wants the whole happily ever after with the men who quickly capture her heart.

Cassidy slowly feels like she belongs in Climax, but something is still missing. Her lovers continually remind her she'll have to accept Matthew in her bed if he returns. She's ready to include him, anxious to experience five men, but what if he wants nothing to do with her?

Review: Keyboards and Kink

Keyboards and Kink
Keyboards and Kink by Sandra Bunino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I won this book in the Keyboards and Kink Blog Hop. And boy am I ever glad I did! I have previously read almost all of the authors in this anthology and there were a few new ones. One thing I have come to learn about Evernight Publishing is that I am almost never disappointed in their books! I was especially excited to read this book because one of the authors gave their heroine my first name.

Review: Blood Rage

Blood Rage
Blood Rage by Tory Michaels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book blew me away! I am in love with the characters that inhabit this world and the world building is wonderful. I like how we get blurbs of information about the history and such at the beginning of each chapter. This book is unlike any vampire book I have previously read. I can't really say too much about the plot because I don't want to give it away. You really need to read this book your self.

Review: Mine to Hold

Mine to Hold
Mine to Hold by Shayla Black

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A friend's duty.

Tyler Murphy was an LAPD detective, single and happy--until a near-fatal tragedy crippled his friend, fellow detective Eric Catalano. While Tyler supported Eric, he also became a shoulder for Eric's wife, Delaney, to lean on. But with one naughty suggestion from Eric, a drunken night with Delaney spilled into erotic abandon. Before it was over, Tyler saw his best friend's wife as a woman and yearned for more. When Eric struggled to deal with the aftermath, Delaney begged Tyler to leave. Crushed, he fled to Louisiana, hoping to escape his longing for the one woman he could never have again...and unaware of what he'd left behind.

Guest Post: Cara Covington

I am pleased to welcome Cara Covington as the guest poster. Today she gives us some insight into how Lusty, Texas came to be.

I never actually meant to be a world builder. It all started out as a challenge issued to me by my publisher. That challenge? To write an historical erotic romance that was also a ménage.

Amanda Hilton came up with the idea, creating the “Lost Collection”. These would be a series of western historical erotic ménage romances crafted by authors invited to take up the challenge. I was blessed to be one of those authors.

Review: Garret's Domination

Garret's Domination
Garret's Domination by Stacey Espino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cassidy's emotions are scattered as she tries to find her place in Climax. She's done wicked things with Garret and his crew, and only craves more of their feral passion. But do they want her for more than just sex?

When an unknown threat comes close to home, Garret doesn't take any chances with Cassidy's safety. He takes her into his element, deep in the woods, where he can best protect her. Once alone, they're able to bond on a new, intimate level.

Garret fights his natural desire to mark the little human for his pack, afraid she'll reject them once she finds out what they really are. The Rockford wolves are playing dirty, and a suspicious visit from Cassidy's long-lost half brother only adds to the problems plaguing the pack.

Review: Surrounded by Wolves

Surrounded by Wolves
Surrounded by Wolves by Stacey Espino

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cassidy moves out of the only city she's ever known and heads to the distant town of Climax, British Columbia. Her grandfather left her an estate, and she lined up a job in the small mining town.

She arrives and discovers that her inheritance is nothing more than a run-down shack, and the men she's supposed to work with are drop-dead gorgeous. It's impossible to resist the advances of the men in Climax, especially when she's never felt so isolated.

Garret is the foreman of the Gregor Copper Mine, but also alpha to a small pack of wolf shifters. Recent events in Climax have made life complicated—loggers are trying to encroach on their land, one of their pack mates is missing, and their new female dispatcher is a mouthwatering distraction. When Cassidy is threatened, the men band together, realizing the little human is more important to them than they ever imagined.

Guest Post: Stacey Espino

Please welcome one of my favorite authors, Stacey Espino! She has a new release today, which is the latest in a serial. That's right, just like the good old days of soap operas when they left you hanging at the end of each episode.  Stacey has been kind enough to come over today and talk a little bit about writing a LoveXtreme Forever Series.
