One desperate writer, one hot cowboy, silk scarves, and sexy scenarios; it's all In the Cards.

Alexandrea Taylor writes historical fiction, not erotica. She can't even think the word…um…p-e-n-i-s. But she wishes she could. When her editor wants her to write a story about a cowboy and a bordello using a pack of sex-aid cards, she fantasizes about buying her dream home. Excep

Recommends it for: Erotic Romance Lovers
Settled in a relationship of convenience with a cheating jerk, Alex hasn't yet fully accepted that her ex-fiancé is just that – an ex.
