Raoul, a C12th adventurer rescues Simone, the daughter of the legendary witch Melusine. Raoul, realises his danger too late. He has rescued her but also fallen captive to a love he will never escape. Both are now hunted, but as their pursuers close in, Simone has one last trick up her sleeve: Dark Fire, a satanic paste activated by sexual magic that will transport them through time and space. The only proviso is that they must find each other again. The penalty for failure is eternal damnation.
In the C21st their future hangs in the balance for Raoul is now Ralph and married to Laura. Simone is trapped in the C17th as Verity Strong. Time is against them...
Dark Fire is a tale of passion, obsession, lust, love, betrayal, possession, reincarnation and dark magic that spans centuries of time.
In the guise of Verity Strong we find Simone at the mercy of those who have cast themselves in the role of judge and jury, sentenced as a witch Verity finds herself being hounded by Melchior Hyde who cannot hide his lust for her even while he condemns her as a harlot in Satan’s service.
To go into great detail would lead to spoiling the read for others but even though that is true will tell you that the way that past and present mesh leads the plot through an intricate dance that will both tantalize as well as scandalize the reader here and there as the characters enact their roles. I have to say that it got confusing here and there as Raoul became Ralph and Simone became Verity, the real twist though is waiting to see how the pair manage to connect again and again.
The question you must ask yourself is will the pair finally be able to converge into the same time to be together forever and if so how? Read the book to find out, you will be drawn into a tale of fantasy you will enjoy!

This is another second chance romance that found myself drawn to from the synopsis and thank you to the author for it being free for Kindle owners becThis is another second chance romance that found myself drawn to from the synopsis and thank you to the author for it being free for Kindle owners because it heated me up nicely on a cold drizzly day in January. Love the fact 5 years passed and neither Addison or Rush ever stopped loving each other even though the devastating way they ended almost destroyed both of them.
Nice intro to series and if were into tattoos would love someone as talented as Rush to ink me!...more

From the moment he lays eyes on Sinners’ new front of house soundboard operator, drummer Eric Sticks knows he has to make Rebekah his. Unfortunately, she’s too busy trying to seduce guitarist Trey Mills to pay him much attention. Rebekah never planned to fall for the tall, goofy drummer with the weird sense of humor and a heart the size of the galaxy. But Eric makes her laugh and his constant attention makes her feel sexy and irresistible–exactly what she needs after the things her last lover said to her. A woman who gives as much as she takes, Rebekah makes Eric feel like a total stud–exactly what he needs after surviving a decade of watching the incredibly talented members of Sinners from the wings.
Rebekah Blake has an ear for metal music and her eye on sexy rock guitarist Trey Mills so when she has the opportunity to fill in for her older brother Dave, Sinner's longtime front of house soundboard operator who is recovering from a wreck which left him in a wheelchair, she of course jumps at the chance to work with the group and most of all the chance to possibly make all her fantasies involving her and Trey come true.
You know what they say about the best laid plans, Rebekah never stood a chance from the minute she laughs at the crazy oddball jokes drummer Eric Sticks their fate is set for the pair. Eric is the one Sinner's member whom we have really not gotten to know yet, he has been there on the sidelines from the beginning starting in book 1 Backstage Pass where he was introduced with the rest of the band members. From then till now he has kept a fairly low profile, other than tidbits here and there about his phenomenal talent musically, his perverted sense of humor and his voyareuristic tendencies in the bedroom.
This is another over the top sex, sex and more sex Sinner's fanfest read and even though by the end I was on board with Eric and "Reb" for a while her total fixation on Trey just kept me from being totally comfortable with her as Eric's "lady". There is a lot of time spent in this book where your heart will melt as each one of the guys shows their softer side when it comes to their support, respect and joy in Eric finally finding someone who makes him happy. I think that even though this series has now ended and even though all of the guys are "taken" the fictional band and it's respective members still have a lot of fans waiting out there in the wings just needing to meet them and enjoy all their craziness like the rest of us who have devoured the series have done.
Not a fan of the way the books were released but did try to read the timeline in order to keep it as straight in my own mind as possible, even if you do not you are still going to wish the "tour" never ended!

Why settle for just one man?
Kara North is on the run. Fleeing from her controlling fiancé and a wedding she never wanted, she accepts the chance offer of refuge on wild, rocky Liddell Island, where she soon catches the eye of the island’s owner, erotic photographer Ric Liddell. Wickedly sexy by day and just plain wicked by night, Ric rules his domain like a feudal lord. He’s used to getting what he wants, without any commitment, and just when Kara thinks she has him hooked, he hides behind a cool, dispassionate mask.
But pleasure comes in more than one flavour when Zachary Blackwater, the charming ice-cream vendor also takes an interest, and wants more than just a tumble in the surf. Zach offers her warmth that she never felt from her ex, and soon it’s not just the ice cream that’s melting.When Kara learns that the two men have been unlikely lovers for years, she becomes obsessed with the idea of a threesome. Zach is reluctant, until he sees the dynamic effect Kara has on Ric’s emotions. She might be the key to finally capturing Ric’s heart.
Soon Kara is wondering how she ever considered binding herself to just one man. She’s never had so much fun or felt so uninhibited, but just when everything seems so perfect, the man she left behind returns with some very old-fashioned ideas about rescuing her and taking her home to his own idea of wedded bliss.
This is the most scorching, no-holds barred, dirty sex reading I have ever had the pleasure to find yet! Not only did I read half of the books 200+ pages on my little bitty smart phone screen but once I transferred it from my archives on my Kindle DX to be read where I left off could not stop until done.
Kara, Zach and Ric are all very strong characters. Each of them have quite a bit of baggage that seems to crop up and make them say and do things they shouldn't at the most inopportune times. The secondary characters in the tale add a bit of color to the story without taking anything away from the main three and their interactions.
This was a thrill-a-minute roller coater ride as they became more and more involved with each other, the sheer physicality of the relationships of the three were dynamically portrayed but the beauty of their mental connections is what really solidified the story for me.
The nicest thing about reading a book like this was the buildup of the characters relationships outside the arena of sexual interactions, at times it was funny, at times it was very intense but it was always illuminating!
If you are looking for sweet romance there is a bit of that in this book, (not much) if you are looking for some of the hottest M/F/M or M/M/F action out there than you have found the book for you to enjoy.
I am not sure if I will ever get over the sheer "kinky" fun that these three got up to but can sure say that it was fun while it lasted from page 1 to the last!
[Amazon had this one as a free read so I snagged a copy, could not put it down hardly to go to sleep once I started it!]
