Sneak Peek Excerpt 

Entering the kitchen, I find Chris leaning on the marble countertop by the coffeepot, shirtless and in his pajama bottoms, the long strands of his blond hair a wild, sexy mess I’m pretty sure I created last night.

He glances up from the paper he’s reading, then picks up his coffee cup. “Morning, Ms. McMillan.”

“Morning, Mr. Merit,” I reply, grinning as I join him.

He offers me his coffee cup and I happily accept it, taking a drink of the perfectly flavored coffee and creamer. Sharing a cup with Chris has this sexy, intimate feel to it that always does funny things to my belly.

“Your last day as a free woman,” he comments.

“Why? Are you planning to tie me up sometime soon?”

He covers my hands on his cup. “Is that an objection, or wishful thinking?” He tilts the cup and drinks, his eyes never leaving mine.

“I plead the Fifth. It’s more fun that way.”

“That it is,” he agrees, but a sigh follows. “I wish I could do the same, but you’d better look at the newspaper.” He sets the cup on the counter, then hands me the Arts section of the local paper.

Dread fills me as I read the headline: “Acclaimed Artist and Philanthropist Chris Merit to wed Sara McMillan on Valentine’s Day in Star-studded Event in Sonoma.” I set it down. “We went to so much trouble to get the press off our backs before the wedding, and now they’ve found us! I knew when all these famous people showed up on the guest list, it was going to turn into a zoo.”

“Walker Security anticipated the press, and they’re staffed and ready for it. It’ll be fine. We’ll be shielded.”

Nerves the size of birds, not butterflies, attack my stomach.

“We should have eloped.”

“We still can. Let’s do it. Now. Today.”

“We can’t elope,” I say, sounding appalled, as if he’d suggested it, not me. “People who respect you are coming a long way to see us. And Katie has planned this for months.”

“Baby, we can do whatever we want. This is our day.”

“No. We can’t. Not this far into this. Which reminds me— you can’t stay here tonight. It’s bad luck to see the bride the night before the wedding.”

“I told you how I feel about that. We make our own luck.”


He kisses me. “I’m staying here tonight, and I’m fucking you like I won’t see you ever again, just to be sure you walk down that aisle.”

“If you’re waiting for me at the end of that aisle, I’ll be there. And if you’re staying here tonight, we can use separate bedrooms.”

“Does today count as part of that eve-of-the-wedding rule?”


He scoops me up and I yelp. “What are you doing?”

“I’m a renegade, baby. Let’s go break the rules.”

Author Spotlight ~ Al Daltrey


A Condo with Two Views
Release Date: January 6, 2015
Genre: Erotica BDSM
Men and women see the world differently, as do dominants and submissives. A Condo With Two Views is told from two perspectives: Jack’s and Chloe’s. Jack is a loving and protective husband, but with a kinky penchant for sharing his willing wife. Chloe is smart and strikingly beautiful, and obeys every command from her husband, no matter how perverse. Each gives their view of the story: one where Chloe must submit to a grungy caretaker, a sexy lesbian couple, an evil developer, an older sadist, and the list goes on. But, what happens when she’s pushed too far? Is the deep love of a husband and wife more powerful than the bond of a dominant and submissive? What will win out, love or bdsm?*This story contains STRONG BDSM. While fully consensual, it includes submission, dominance, sadism and masochism. Please do NOT buy or read this if you are offended by graphic sexual descriptions including sexual violence. All characters are aged 25+, and it is recommended for an adult audience ONLY (aged 21+). This story is pure fiction and the author does not condone any violent behavior.

 Testing the Submissive

Release Date: June 30, 2014

Genre: Dark Erotica BDSM


Abby stood nervously before her Master in the classic submissive pose: fully nude, legs apart, wrists placed behind her back; deeply ashamed of her evident arousal. Worse, she had to recount in exact detail the proceedings of her last whipping. The whipping had been severe; as was the case with most of the clients she was commissioned to serve. Most of these clients were men, some were women, on occasion a couple, or even a group. Nevertheless her body reacted like that of a wanton whore as she retold of the sadistic punishments and extreme sexual use inflicted upon her body.

How far would her Master push her with these ‘tests’? How far would Abigail go? How many times could she stand before him blushing; yet with that unmistakable tingle? Their relationship was surely headed for a collision course. Or was it?

Book Trailer

By day I work in Marketing, which involves a fair amount of writing. Therefore, I never really had an interest to write for pleasure. When you do it all day, the last thing you want to do when you get home, is more writing. All the while, as my career progressed, so did my involvement in the BDSM lifestyle.
This interest in kinky sex started in my University years. Like most men, I loved meeting women, and especially the occasional one who didn’t mind being tied up, or blindfolded, or spanked. All sex was great, but kinky sex was more exciting, more exhilarating, and more fulfilling.
Over the years I was lucky enough to meet my fair share of submissive women. And don’t for a minute think these women were weak. Outside the bedroom they were confident, opinionated, gregarious and self-assured. However, inside the bedroom (so to speak) they wanted to feel the strong firm hand of a dominant man taking complete control.
Eventually I found the perfect partner, and am happily in a relationship.
One day, I flipped my laptop open, and to my surprise – I had an urge to write a BDSM story. Soon I had 20 pages, then 40, then 60. The novel that resulted was ‘Testing the Submissive’.  The response was overwhelmingly positive, and the reviews excellent – all of which motivated me to continue writing. ‘A Condo With Two Views’ is my second full length novel, with other projects in the works. If you decide to give any of my writing a try, I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s a little sneak peek into ALL OF ME!

Only minutes later, we pull up to the gate of our home on Foch Avenue, and Chris rolls down his window and keys in the entry code.

Our home. I’ll never get tired of those words, and I’m finally starting to get used to using them. But what really hits me in this moment is that no matter how out of his mind with grief and guilt Chris might be, I don’t feel insecure. I don’t believe he has any intention of shutting me out, as he did in the face of tragedy in the past. No matter what we have to endure, no matter how ugly life might get, my place will always be with Chris. And he needs that security as much as I do. He needs to know that no matter how bad things get, I’m not going anywhere.

***Mission Delivery Excerpt***

Hell hath no fury like a woman induced into labor.“You super sperm carrying mother fucker! Get your ass over here so I can rip your balls off!”Belle was screaming every obscenity invented by man and few I was pretty sure she had come up with on her own. My beautiful, serene, glowing fiancée had been replaced by a woman who could make the toughest men stand across the room to protect their assets.

The nurse slowly side-stepped from the room’s doorway over to me, keeping her wary gaze on the woman who was screeching like a banshee on the bed. “Sir, should I call a priest in to perform an exorcism?”

I turned my head to consider the nervous nurse’s suggestion. Short of Belle turning her head three hundred sixty degrees and vomiting green shit, I had to admit she was sort of acting like a demonically possessed hellion.

Movement out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. I managed to grab the nurse’s shoulder, forcing her to duck down with me as the object flew over our heads, hit the wall with a bang, and then clattered to the floor.

Hesitantly, I looked over at the now still projectile to see what it was and shuddered. Belle’s bedpan. Sweet mother of God, the woman really was possessed.

“Hey! Assholes! Stop gossiping like little girls and get over here and get this kid out of me!” Her eyes were blazing with pain and fury, her blonde hair was a messy halo around her head, and she didn’t have a lick of make-up on. She looked like she had marched through war and back.

She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, though.

And temporarily fuck-nuts crazy, too.

Review ~ Falling Away (Fall Away #3) by Penelope Douglas

Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid. K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away….

K. C. Carter has always followed the rules—until this year, when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and to make matters worse, trouble is living right next door.

Jaxon Trent is the worst kind of temptation and exactly what K.C. was supposed to stay away from in high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn’t give him the time of day and the only one to ever say no. Fate has brought K.C. back into his life—except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too close for comfort. As they grow closer, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.…

BLP Review ~ Tracy

I kinda stumbled across Bully just after it was released and decided to give it a read… I’m SO glad I did.
The series, IMHO, has just gotten better and better as we’ve moved along and read all of the characters stories.

I have to admit that being in my mid 40s, normally a book with a cast in the age range that the Fall Away peeps are in wouldn’t be one of my first choice reads….. BUT when it comes to Penelope Douglas and this series, it’s a different matter entirely. I put down another MUST READ to get started on Jaxon and KC’s story as I’ve been itching to get my hands on Falling Away since I finished Rival. I’m delighted, but not surprised, that it’s more than met my expectations.

Jax and KC are both broken, lost and in need of an anchor but they have so much front and such a need to hide their pain and past that you’d never know what’s going on in their heads. The story was really great – the snark and interactions between J & KC were fun, sharp and entertaining, the attraction they were both fighting was palpable and then the sex…. hells teeth, the sex was nigh on explosive..
I was in knots at times as to what was gonna happen and will say that at one point I really did feel sick, this feeling just sat in the pit of my stomach and I was worried that Jaxon was gonna mess things up hugely and need a serious beating (round the head with a big stick!!) – you’ll know which part I mean when you get to it I’m sure!!
As ever, I cried – quite a bit – jeez, I can’t believe I forgot that you need to stock up on tissues when reading a Fall Away book…. lol….

The story grabbed me from the prologue. As you read, the characters come alive ~ they are engaging, believable and (with the exception of a feck-up here and there) very likeable! Their story isn’t light and it’s no fairytale – both have had to go through a load of crap growing up and it’s shaped them and made them who they are. Neither is perfect, but, if they can make things work they are perfect together…

We meet up with Jared & Tate and Madoc & Fallon as well as family and friends and see how things are going for them and how life is treating them… Gods, therein lies another tale….

Finally we got a wee sneak peek at Aflame (book 4 in the series where we go back to the first couple we met, Jared & Tate…) I’m starting to stock pile tissues now ‘cos I’ve got a feeling we’re gonna need a shedload for their next book!!!!

If you’ve read the Fall Away series so far, Falling Away is a must read. If you haven’t given the books a go, do it – they really are worth it!!!

He takes a picture of every woman he kills.

She takes nothing from anyone.

Kate Jackson is a woman haunted by her past with no direction in life, and surviving only on her close relationship with her sister, Annie. Until she meets charming lawyer, Derrick Kane.

Just when she thinks she might have found the key to learning how to live again, maybe even how to love, The Photographer rips it all away from her with one click of his camera.

Somehow she survived, determined to rise above the trauma life has dealt her. Yet, she doesn’t get away that easy, The Photographer isn’t done with her yet.

The infamous serial killer begins dropping menacing hints at every turn.

The small, quiet life that Kate Jackson had built for herself is over.

Trust had never come easily to her, yet she had given it to Derrick. And he destroyed her with it.

Kate is a fighter and refusing to allow a sadistic killer to take everything from her yet again, she delves into the police investigation targeting The Photographer and finally revealing his true identity. Kate is fighting for justice while fighting to reclaim the man she loves, and somehow learn to trust him again.

Monsters are only uglier in the light of day.

BLP REVIEW – Rebecca

‘His to Claim’ left me lukewarm at best, ‘Swing’ by Opal Carew is an old erotica favourite of mine and some of her previous work is excellent, however, I reviewed ‘Riding Steele’ some weeks back and I was disappointed –  unfortunately this one is, in my opinion, the same and I doubt I will return to this author again.


What if you could have everything you’ve always wanted, but it cost you the life you’ve always known?

Rafe Ranier was my boss and secret crush. A rock musician by night and head of a billion dollar empire by day, Rafe could have any woman he wanted. But I was just the shy secretary he never noticed. For years I obsessed over him, until I finally realized I had to walk away. I needed to leave my secure life behind to discover who I really was.

I never expected Rafe to follow me.

Now I’m on the road with his band, Savage Kiss, and all my secret fantasies are coming true. But I fear I’ve made a huge mistake, because if I get any more attached to a man I can never truly have, my heart will be broken beyond all repair.


So here’s the thing; Billionaire plus poor pretty girl is usually one story, Rock God and pretty poor girl another and both incredibly popular in the romance/erotica genre so combine the two and should be a double whammy winner, Yes?


There were so many issues with these characters and storyline that I was frustrated and fed up when I finished, actually wondering why I just hadn’t put it aside and marked it as DNF.

My Issues:

Rafe is his name, Storm is his Rock God persona, so why does Melanie swap between the two names all the bloody time even when he’s not performing? It was beyond annoying, slightly confusing and juvenile.

The believability factor is stretched for me to accept that a successful band can have a member who hops in and out of the tour at the drop of a hat as he feels like it, even disregarding that any successful musician has usually put in years of time, effort, blood sweat and tears. Also, is any billionaire businessman with an empire likely to have time for both? Even with a brother sharing the empire, I’m just not buying it.

Melanie is described as the shy secretary who has obsessed over Rafe for years so leaves her job to escape the man she can’t have. When he asks her why she left she tells him she wants more time to herself to pursue her dreams. None of this rings true for me. A shy secretary would not turn into a woman who either can’t keep her pants on or doesn’t wear any at all, kisses other guys while supposedly started something with her “obsession” for years (Rafe) and next is having a foursome with 3 men, nope, even the good girl discovering her bad self didn’t make me warm to or believe this.

And for somebody who wants to pursue her dreams, was apparently focused and organised in her secretary role, she makes no real effort to do this – instead waiting around until others suggest and help her. A weak woman who I could happily bitch slap.

And so to the sex, which usually from this author would redeem the book a little, as it did in ‘Riding Steele’, however it was just ‘meh’. Tepid, boring, predictable and I ceased to care.

So for me this book just didn’t work on any level: characters that were too shallow, a story and world that was unbelievable and no amazing sex to make it worth putting up with the rest for. Disappointing.

I cannot finish this review and be honest without also commenting on the price. I am yet again disgusted that any publisher believes $8.89 for a 288 page ebook is acceptable because no way no how is that a reasonable price. J R Ward’s ‘The King’ (Blackdagger #12) is 673 pages for $5.99 and that’s a prime example of value for money. ‘His to Claim’ unfortunately was not from a quality or price perspective.
