Drake Morgan, MD, neurosurgeon, bass player, philanthropist - Dominant. He doesn't do girlfriends, he doesn’t do sleepovers, and he certainly doesn't do breakfast in bed the morning after. He has his surgical slate at New York Presbyterian, he has a charitable foundation providing surgical tools to hospitals in Africa, he has his Brit Invasion cover band, Mersey, and he has his secret life as a Dominant in Manhattan's BDSM community.

Into bondage, D/s and the occasional dungeon scene, Drake keeps every part of his life separate, the divisions between them neat and tidy. His weeks are filled with surgeries, music, and D/s sex, and none of the well-planned and scheduled parts of his life intersect. That is until Kate McDermott crosses his path and screws everything up. Now, nothing is neat and tidy anymore, for Drake is smitten, and things are going to get messy....

This book was good to me. It is similar to 50 Shades of Grey but different. Jack Calihan did a great job at bring this book to life.

One queen. Three suitors. A devious plot.

Almost queen, Amara has never had time for romance - until she has to find a husband or forfeit the throne. With limited time on her hands and a cousin eager to usurp her, Amara sets her sights on a foreign prince. Things get complicated quickly as her childhood sweetheart and her schoolyard enemy are on hand to confuse just about everything.

Can she win the hand of the prince and keep her crown?

I enjoyed this book. I do want to say that it is a reverse harem book, so if that isn't what you like please don't try it an then give the author low scores because you don't like the subject matter.

Nicole Blessing does a great job on this book as always!

They captured her. They punished her. Now they will master her.

First the Vakarrans took my home. Then they took my sister. Now, they have taken me.

As a prisoner of four of their fiercest warriors, I know what fate awaits me. Humans who dare to fight back the way I did are not just punished, they are taught their place in ways so shameful I shudder to think about them.

The four huge, intimidating alien brutes who took me captive are going to claim me in every way possible, using me more thoroughly than I can imagine. I despise them, yet as they force one savage, shattering climax after another from my naked, quivering body, I cannot help but wonder if soon I will beg for them to master me completely.

This a good book and steamy. I liked it. Be warned though don't pick this book if you don't like to read about multiples.

One exiled queen. Three sworn protectors. A river of blood and vengeance.

Living in exile since birth, Violet Sinclaire should never have been born. She is a half-blood descendent of royalty, and her existence was forbidden by the ancient immortals long ago. Now, the royals want her dead.

As the one true queen of the shadow world, Violet has sworn to take back her throne and avenge her mother's murder at any cost. First, she must choose her warriors, for they are her shields in battle; the armor that will keep her safe from the royal assassins. Determined that a half-breed will never own the throne, the royals have called for her blood. Little do they know that Violet has blood cravings of her own, and she's coming for them.

A Throne of Blood is a reverse-harem fantasy romance series, and Mistress Violet is a queen with whom to be reckoned. This series contains graphic scenes of BDSM as well as MF, MFM, and MM+. This audiobook might not be your cup of tea, but you have been warned. Enter at your own risk.

This book is action packed and I loved every minute of it. This book sex scenes were very eloquently written, however it is for the open minded. But truly this is a great story line and Ashley Taylor did an excellent job at bringing this book to life! It's definitely worth a try! Can't wait for book 2!

Funny and Exciting

I fell in love with book. This is a page turner! I love a book that I hate to stop and I am running back too. This book is well written and I love the characters. Skye MacKinnon has just found a new fan. Laurel Schroeder is the prefer narrator for this book! Love, Love, Loved it!

Molly Beluga was abandoned at the altar and has no intention of heading back there anytime soon. When she crosses paths with an arrogant fireman, she knows better than to let her heart get involved. She can’t face the idea of having it broken by another failed relationship. A serious journalist working for her family’s newspaper, her only plan is to focus on her career and to train her new Labrador puppy, Daisy, to behave.

Tim Holden left the family newspaper to become a fireman with the Atlanta Fire Department. After a lifetime of watching the newspaper business consume his family, he has no time for journalists, let alone a beautiful and feisty journalist with no regard for anything other than getting the story. Now thirty, he’s grown tired of bouncing between short-term relationships so when an idea emerges for a fake relationship, he’s intrigued.

Will these enemies sheath their swords long enough to formulate a plan that just might bring their warring families back together?

A modern retelling of the classic tale, Romeo and Juliet, without all the gore.

This was a beautiful love story. It was very well written and I love the characters they are very relatable. It was funny and sweet. Amanda Stribling did a great job of bringing this book to life.
