Exotica ~ Eden Bradley ~ Review


Exotica: Seven Days of Kama Sutra, Nine Days of Arabian NightsWelcome to Exotica...
a lush, sensual retreat where women can experience their most taboo fantasies.
Step inside—and leave your inhibitions at the door...
When her old friend Caroline invites her to Exotica for a week of pampering and pleasure, Lilli DeForrest has no idea what to expect. But when Rajan steps into her suite, the attraction is intense, immediate, overwhelming. He is her ideal lover—by turns tender, commanding, erotic. But, as Lilli is about to discover, Rajan's masterful touch is just the beginning...

As manager of the luxurious retreat, Caroline Winter creates thrilling escapist fantasies for other women. Now she's about to live out a fantasy of her own: dark, exotic Kian will challenge her to accept the exquisite pleasures he offers. But what Caroline doesn't expect is the power of Kian's sensuality...surrendering to him means abandoning herself completely—and giving up all control.

For Lilli, it's the chance to test the limits of her sexuality. For Caroline, it's trusting Kian with her most hidden desires even as she's uncovering his own guarded secret. And for both women, it's a journey into the hidden depths of fantasy—as they discover just how far they'll go in search of seduction, surrender, and pleasure beyond imagining...

Review ~


This is the first Eden Bradley book I've read,  but will not the last.  Loved it!

There are 1 of 5 theme's to choose from at the exclusive fantasy resort Exotica. Seven Days Of Kama Sutra is just what the title states...but there's really so much more.The first story in this 2 story tale is  about Lilli (a girl "like"your sister, friend or maybe even yourself) and Rahan (the name alone conjures up some HOT fantasies) - both not sure what the future holds for them.

 I identified with Lilli, starting a new life, at almost 40, divorced and unsure of who she is now.  Can she learn to believe in herself and realize her potential...her dreams?  Lilli has more inside her than even she is aware of.

Rahan (mmm...) the Kama Sutra lover who gives his clients the ultimate fantasy, but he wants/needs more.  As he helps Lilli learn to believe in herself and her dreams, he also learns things about himself and his dreams. But will his pride get in the way of what's best for him and Lilli?  

For Ms. Bradley returning-readers and the new ones, this is a must read and I'd like to personally thank her for inviting me into the sensual and erotic fantasy of Exotica.

Nine Days of Arabian Nights, is the second book in Exotica by Eden Bradley.
As the newest theme at the fantasy resort Exotica, it had me wanting to make my reservation... NOW.A beautiful oasis setting, sheer silk hanging in the doorway moving sensually in the warm night breeze,  rich jeweled color pillows on the bed and floor,  hot sex... a gorgeous man and a beautiful woman. Did I mention extremely hot sex? 

Looking at the photo of Exotica newest companion Kian, Caroline decides she could use a fantasy of her own.  But why this man...Caroline asks herself (I know why and so will you).  Seeing Kian in person, Caroline now knows what has drawn her to him and unsure if she can go through with her fantasy. Caroline wonders what the relationship is between Kian and the owner of Exotica and why it feels as if Kian knows more about her than she does him.

Kian knows all about Caroline.  He knows exactly what she needs and is willing to give it to her (and boy does he...I did mention hot sex). But he didn't expect to fall for her. Kian is now in a precarious position, his promise to the owner of Exotica and his newly found feelings for Caroline.  Kian knows that he has to speak with Caroline before the truth comes out... if only he can find her.

Eden Bradley  takes you through an emotional and sexual roller coaster ride with Kian and Caroline. Climb on board, strap in and love the ride, I did.

Silk Road ~ TJ Michaels ~ Review by Lola





 On looking through my pile of books that need to be reviewed, Silk Road grabbed me immediately on glancing at the enticing cover—Beea-U-tiful!   Sexy angel...come to sinful mama!
 

Silk Road (Seals of Destiny Book 1) The first Descendant in millennia with the power to use an ancient artifact is being hunted. By the good, the bad…and the worst.

* * * * *

Every rogue longs for a second chance, right? Wrong. Larien, former angel of The Host is not looking for redemption. What he needs hasn’t been seen in millennia but he’ll search the ends of the Earth to find it – from the hills of San Francisco all the way to…the Silk Road.

Jayla Protegenu learned as a child to call her protectors to keep at bay the things that prowled the night. Now, as a woman grown, she never expected one of those protectors would be a Fallen angel - Larien. His job: to help Jayla find the mythical and mystical Seal of Solomon.

Even among those who created the very meaning of good and evil, nothing is black and white. Neither friends nor enemies are what they appear.

 REVIEW ~ 

On looking through my pile of books that need to be reviewed, Silk Road grabbed me immediately on glancing at the enticing cover—Beea-U-tiful!   Sexy angel...come to sinful mama!
 
Silk Road has it all...angels, demons and fey...OH-MY!  What a wonderful job T.J. Michaels has done with intertwining a tale about angels we know and love—and those we think we despise—with elements of mysticism and mythology.  Silk Road was a gripping and intriguing book that had me laughing out loud just as much as biting my knuckles. The twists and turns kept me in suspense and had my mind working overdrive on trying to figure out who’s good, who’s bad, and best of all...what the hell is going to happen?  I’m keeping this review short and sweet so as not to give anything away.
 
The fallen angel—former warrior—Larien has got his hands full when it comes to this little spitfire of a mortal woman, Jayla.  She is a descendant of Solomon and possesses a very valuable power...one highly sought after which puts her very life in danger. On the quest for the ancient artifact, the Seal of Solomon, her best friends Talan and Chel join forces with her and Larien.
 
Jayla is awesome.  She’s a strong woman who calls it like she sees it which leads to some seriously funny laugh-out-loud moments.  I absolutely loved her dominant and forward sexual behavior...she wants Larien and has no qualms about making it known.
 
Larien, on the other hand, holds back on acting out his sexual desires with her which really helped build the tension between the two. He’s not a “typical” angel which I found refreshing.  I loved his cussing, kick-ass attitude just as much as his caring and reluctant side.  His personal struggles were very believable which kept me turning pages to see how Jayla would help him overcome his hang-ups.
 
Talan and Chel were a hoot and I loved them to pieces.  I can’t wait to see which of these two (if either) Ms. Michaels is going to write about next.  I haven’t even peeked about upcoming novels in this series, so I have no clue. Though I’d rather leave it a surprise for now. 
 
This book is very involved with a lot of layers to it.  At first I was confused by the complex caste of fallen angels, although once I decided to quit going back to re-read and commit to memory—to just let the story unfold—it became clearer and was a true pleasure to read.

Lara Adrian ~ Heart of the Hunter ~ Review by Lola

Did you know Dawn has not read any of Lara Adrian’s titles?  Are you like Dawn...haven’t read her yet?  Let me tell you a bit about Ms. Adrian.  She’s a FANTASTIC story spinner—one of my go-to authors because every one of her books has swept me away immediately.
 

Heart of the Hunter (Dragon Chalice, #1)

BUY IT HERE: Amazon

 Ariana of Clairmont would risk anything to save her kidnapped brother, a quest she knows is fraught with peril. Her only ally is Braedon le Chasseur, a formidable knight with a mysterious past, whose scarred face and brooding nature mask a soul filled with pain. Ariana fears this dangerous man and the secrets he strives to conceal—but Braedon’s touch is pure seduction, his kiss a potent lure that tempts her into a passion she is powerless to resist.

Once known as The Hunter, now haunted by a dark legacy he struggles to deny, Braedon lives in a world of shadow and isolation—until he is thrust together with an innocent beauty in need of his protection. Embarking on a journey that will lead them to a legendary treasure, Braedon will be forced to confront old enemies and the stunning secret of his true nature—or risk losing Ariana and the only happiness he has ever known.



Review ~

Until recently I had only read her Lara Adrian titles, though recently she tweeted about her Heart of the Hunter (Book #1 - Dragon Chalice series).  I had no clue she had written anything under the pen name Tina St. John and learned a bit of exciting news.  Here’s a small excerpt from a note about her indie reissues:  Starting with HEART OF THE HUNTER, the first in my Dragon Chalice paranormal medieval series, I am reissuing all seven of my historical romances (written under the name Tina St. John). If you like my Midnight Breed series, I think you'll find much to enjoy about the Dragon Chalice books in particular. Centered on a quest for a mythical cup forged of dark secrets and hidden powers, the Dragon Chalice series allowed me to infuse my dark medieval romances with the mystique of mythical kingdoms, dark magic and dangerous shapeshifters.
 
This book had two important qualities for me:  I love stories that involve a quest for a mystical object of great desire and it had the complexity I crave. 
 
From the beginning I left my luggage on the dock, jumped on the boat and set off to help them free Kenrick (Ariana’s kidnapped brother).  I found out Ariana was holding back the fact that she had a satchel of important documents.  Braedon recognized these documents in the satchel and that’s when I got real excited...I just knew the rescue mission we’d set out on had just morphed into a quest as well.  I watched them butt heads and then learn to get along, and witnessed the spark of interest flicker and grow to a steady flame. Together, we hid in inns, escaped detection and rode horses until they were frothy with sweat, and raced the rushing tide before we were swept out to see as we set foot at Mont St. Michel where we were sure the chalice must be hidden. Obviously I’m exhausted from my quest and grow weary of its retelling...I suggest you pick up a copy and set out on your own.

A Practical Arrangement Tour


Title: A Practical Arrangement
Author: Nadja Notariani
Genre: Historical Romance, Romance,
Publisher: Indie Published
Ebook
Pages: appx. 195

Purchase:

Amazon  |

Book Description:

۩ A Practical Arrangement, Nadja Notariani ۩

Miss Evangeline Grey, intelligent and sensible, has no desire to marry, her reluctance born from the dire warnings of her overly emotional mother. Her father has other ideas, however, and decrees that unless she weds by the spring, he will choose a husband for her.

Prim and proper Evangeline accepts her father's issue with little more than mild alarm. Knowing herself plain of face and sharp of tongue, she believes herself capable of warding off any perspective suitor. Her plan goes awry when the scandalous seducer, Mr. Thomas Masterson, visits her family's home, for Thomas has learned that he must procure a wife to receive his full inheritance.

When he discovers Evangeline's predicament matches his own, Thomas determines to orchestrate a practical arrangement. A war of wit and word results, and Thomas finds himself ever more beguiled by the soft heart he discovers under Miss Grey's stern, inhibited exterior. Patiently, he endeavors to gain her respect and awaken her passions. As tenuous trust blooms between the rake and the reluctant, unfortunate events – and Thomas' past reputation – threaten to destroy the peace and happiness he has found within the bonds of his Practical Arrangement.

Excerpt:
Evangeline felt sorry for Melody in a small way, her mother as well. They had no defense, no antidote to counter the forceful emotions stirred in them. She counted herself lucky to have been spared their burden.
In good time Melody and their mother returned, tea arriving directly afterward, and while glad to see them she couldn't deny sorrow over her lost solitude.
“Oh, they both are such handsome men, Melody. And wealthy enough, too.”
“Mr. Lane is, by far, more handsome with his light hair and eyes,” Melody admired openly.
They really are too silly! Infatuated girls, you'd think!
“What say you, Evangeline?” Melody challenged brightly. “Which gentleman do you prefer?”
Pursing her lips, Evangeline took a deep breath.
Of all the fiddle-faddle! Preferring gentlemen!
“I don't prefer either of them, nor any other for that matter.”
But as usual, Providence gave her no quarter, choosing the moment of her sister's question to spring said gentlemen into the sitting room. All eyes landed upon her, her father grinning in a most amused way. Evangeline flushed, a deep burn rising under her skin. Thomas Masterson made his greetings, and as the others conversed around the tea cart he neared, taking her hand and bringing it to his lips.
“I'd take you at your word, Miss Grey, but your pretty blush suggests perhaps you do harbor a preference.” His eyes simmered, locked intently on hers.
Oh! What did he mean by saying that?
She found herself squirming under that gaze of his – and appalled – stilled immediately. Gathering herself, she answered. “Never confuse indifference with deceit, Mr. Masterson.”
Still, he did not look away, surprising her.

Sinister Seduction Tour with Livia Olteano




Dark Lover
by Livia Olteano

I’m a big time paranormal romance lover, the hotter and darker the better. I must have read zounds of paranormal stories, and I’ll be the first to tell you they’ll never get old. Never. Vampire, demon, werewolf, dragon, any made-up creature or spin on a real one, as long as they’re not trying to apologize for who or what they are, I’m going to be a fan.
But being the evil thing that I am, I will confess to always find myself wishing for more of a darker nature to the whole thing. How much darker, you’ll say, isn’t a vampire/werewolf/demon/dragon/etc enough? And I’ll say no, there’s never enough of a really good thing.
I’ve always had this idea of a dark lover, this vague but titillating notion of something so unique, so intense and overpowering that it’ll possess my every breath, my every thought, conquer all the levels of me until my very core, the very essence of my being. To be owned in such a complete and irrevocable way, to revel in the simple presence of this magnificent creature, to shudder at meeting his eyes and shiver as his scent wraps around you… I’ve been seeking ways to reach this particular shade among the shadows, to make him real for my naughty self and anyone else who may enjoy his visit.
An evil lover, someone who makes you work for that bliss to come (no pun intended :D), someone who makes you pay in blood and tears for any pleasure you might get. Because then, when you’ll get that pleasure, when you’ll experience the bliss, it’ll feel real and it will be yours, fully, entirely yours, you’ll have traded something of your soul for it.
I guess this has a lot to do with my love for power play, but anyways. The darker lover, he’s the one unrepentantly dragging you into the shadows before making your knees melt. There’s something incredibly erotic to me about the idea of a sinister seduction, perhaps this notion that once seduced in such a way there’ll be no going back, no undoing or moving on from it. So when I had the chance to finally unleash my inner beast, I took it. Hence the gargoyle lover in my story, Mistress. He’s not selfless and sweet, he won’t find a corner of your life to sit in patiently and wait for you to acknowledge him. No, he’ll hunt you down, take you by storm, he’ll bend you to his wishes or break you in the process. This delicious, unstoppable darkness that you can’t run or hide from, this altering sense of being possessed – this is my dark lover. And I enjoyed writing about him tremendously.
I can only hope you’ll enjoy reading about him, too, that you’ll enjoy his visit and keep him in the darkest, juiciest part of your soul.

Excerpt from Dragon’s Den
by Raven Corinn Carluk

The Dragon’s Den was a contemptible nest of scruff and depravity, but it was where my bounty had led me. One little demoness was going to earn me a load of cash, so I wasn’t going to let the sex club scare me off. As one of the top bounty hunters in three dimensions, I had certainly been in worse places, and would be again.
Staring at the white marble facade wasn’t going to get me paid. Checking my weapons, I strode past the bouncer. His gaze was heavy on my breasts, but the big orc said nothing. The Dragon’s Den resided at a nexus of dimensions, they saw weirder things than a mixed-blood bounty hunter like me. I bumped into him as I passed, giving him a bribe; the rest of the bouncers would now leave me alone to do what I needed.
Stepping past the ornate double doors, I realized I was over-dressed for the place. The servers wore harnesses of latex, barely enough synthetic fabric to be called an uniform. Some patrons wore outfits so tight as to leave nothing to the imagination, and others wore nothing at all. Everything was meant to tantalize and taunt, to appeal to sexuality and hunger.
I looked downright prudish in my wyvern leather armor and battle harness. The sapphire and onyx scales normally looked exotic, tight enough to reveal my figure and not get in the way in a battle, leaving only my pale hands and face exposed. Amongst this pool of deviants, not even the eight knives sheathed around my body were anything special.
Touching my blue hair trapped in its topknot, I wished I’d hunted in this club before; it was nice to not stand out.
Not that the freakiest of freaks would stand out here. Magic and technology combined in an unique atmosphere. Music blared and lights flashed while faeries sparkled and elves summoned colorful illusions. More than a dozen races were present, most of them revealing large portions of their anatomy.
Even though I stood in the middle of the entryway, no one said anything to me. Not surprising; most denizens of the crossworlds knew Brygny was a fearsome bounty hunter, and that I wasn’t above a little collateral damage to get my way. I’d yet to meet anyone who didn’t tremble slightly at my name.
Not bad for a genetic hybrid. Instead of being scoffed at and shunned, I used my mixed abilities to carve a name in the multiverse. I was one of those rare cases of mutation where I wasn’t just a bundle of flaws. And with no one people to call my own, no one got special treatment from me.
Of course, with everyone so lost in hedonism, I’d have to play especially rough if someone got in my way.
The demoness I hunted was here, on one of the top floors. Three stories of depraved sex and violence between me and her. Sniffing deep the drug-laden air, I told myself I’d be able to handle it. As much as the blood and lust enticed me, it would take more than this weak crowd to draw me from my job.
I mounted the stairs, letting my senses roam through the Den-goers. I had the hunting abilities of dragon, vampire, weretiger, and a few other species, meaning I could quickly sort through potential prey in a heartbeat. With three decades of collecting bounties under my belt, labeling enemy and non-combatant and potential antagonist was a subconscious job now.
The majority of this group was too intoxicated to be any form of threat. Even the demons and orcs were deep in their addled fantasies, so far gone they wouldn’t know if I attacked them. So long as no one pulled me into one of their little games, I should have no problems getting in and out with my target.
I ascended to the first story, and the club revealed its true nature. The ground floor was all dancing and getting to know one another. This floor was candle-lit booths and diners, with a mingling crowd exploring their bodies. Sex and drugs and decadence were only a front for dark dealings, though. Assassins were given orders, slaves were traded, loot was sold to people who asked no questions.
Not that any of it was out in the open. None of the patrons flaunted what they did, or tried to call attention to themselves. A casual observer would only see club-goers watching the displays of flesh and talking to each other. Even the body guards looked like just other deviants.
But I wasn’t a casual observer. I sensed who was high, who was hungry, who was angry, who was desirous, who was armed. The currents in the air brought me tastes of the emotive cloud, let me know who was watching me. Not many had eyes for me on this level, and I moved quickly through them.
