Rose returns Skryker’s love but her Angel heritage has placed restraints on returning Skryker’s devotion. She is often filled with divine guilt over her love for the demon, and Skryker is well aware that deep in her heart, Rose feels he is less than worthy, as much as she may say otherwise. As a gift for his thirtieth birthday, Rose is going to offer Skryker her complete submission in an effort to erase the pain she so inadvertently inflicts on his heart.
If you have not become part of the Skryker fan club, you will miss out on the deeper subtext of this book. It will read as an extremely well written, graphically hard core story about a paranormal three day BDSM encounter. That in itself is enough for some readers, but without the backstory, the reader misses the sheer brilliance and enormity of Rose's gift to Skryker. I have long been a critic of Rose for shortselling my boy, Skryker. For all his tough exterior, he is a squishy teddy bear at heart, and when he is hurt, it is deep and profound. For those of you who have followed my reviews for any length of time, you know I am NOT a fan of female submissiveness as a rule. Nor am I, as a rule, a fan of hard core BDSM. You know what they say about rules, the proof is in the exception...... and Demon's Slave is the exception. Even though I understood why Rose felt the way she did, I still resented her on behalf of Skryker. His devotion was unswerving and eternal, but it was also eating away at his soul. I couldn't fathom a way to balance the scales. (and I sooo am about balance) That is why I am not an author. This perfect remedy would never have occurred to me, and I would have just lingered in literary angst.
Skryker is well aware that Rose is physically stronger, that she is descended from divine blessings and he can never attain her status. He is descended from the depths of Hell, flotsum for the Host to spurn and torment. By allowing Skryker to exorcise his "demons" and giving him complete and utter mastery over her person, she is in essence showing Skryker his true worth in her eyes. This book is a VERY graphic portrayal of BDSM. It is sometimes hard to take, it is also one of the most beautiful and emotional books you will ever read.(less)

Her new lover Mark has asked for complete control in their sexual relationship and Summer is finding that in handing over her control, her pleasure is increased beyond her wildest fantasies.
Summer's Journey is a delightfully sexy first person narrative of a strong professional woman taking charge of her own sexuality by giving complete control to her lover. The journey is broken up into eminently tasty little short stories. Believe me, I don't think you could take the whole journey at once without sitting in a tub filled with ice. Tastefully but graphically detailed, each story is another step in a long adventurous journey to become the sexual diva nature intended her to be. Mark, Summer's new lover. plans and dictates each assignation. He tells Summer they are going to do a sexual alphabet, a new letter for each meeting. I'll just let your imaginations run rampant from there. For fans familiar with the first story, expect the heat level to jump to supernova in this book. For readers who are leery of BDSM (as I am myself) this is a very light view. For those of you who haven't yet had the pleasure, or just had a niggling little thought about what it might be like to take a walk on the wild side, this would be a perfect starting point that offers a ringside seat.(less)

She is an average woman, not a porn star wannabe, not cover model gorgeous, or someone who thought they were overly adventurous. This is the start of her journey to erotic self awareness. I will be totally honest about reviewing this book. I ventured forth with a lot of trepidation. This was a “new 2 me” author, and a self published one at that. I have had some less than pleasant experiences going down that road. The story is also in first person, which for me is especially uncomfortable when reading erotica. This was certainly a welcome surprise. This was absolutely one of the most beautifully written and tasteful pieces of erotic literature I have gotten my hands on this year. It did not fall into the trap of using graphic language and terminology to cover up lack of imagination or writing skills. Don’t get me wrong, the words aren’t sugar coated or Victorian euphemisms, they are just used appropriately and in the correct amount. In this first volume, we get to know a little about Summer, and her initial contact with Mark. We get to watch the relationship unfold from the very beginning. I still can’t determine if this is fiction or not, and that just adds to the fun and mystique of the book. I was absolutely hooked and invested by the time I finished this book. If you are tired of the same old, same old in women’s erotica, then I definitely recommend this book. It brings a very welcome freshness to a growing genre that desperately needs some new blood.

Set in Texas in the 1880's, deep in cattle country, Jackson, Nate and Sarah had quite a few obstacles in their path. It wasn't unheard of for men to be hanged for doing what Sarah caught Nate and Jackson doing in her father's barn. Better Sarah be forced into a shotgun wedding than for the boys to dangle at the end of a rope. For the full review go to http://www.yougottareadreviews.blogsp...(less)

This was an outstanding foray into BDSM, menage territory. While I am not big into BDSM, I can tolerate it more from a dominant female standpoint. Submissive females make my skin crawl, so the heroine, Anwyn was right up my alley. Submissive males are a good thing in the bedroom, as long as they make up for it by being super alpha outside of it, so Gideon Green, one of the heroes, fills the bill rather nicely. The other hero, the dominant vampire, Daegan Rei, is just macho sex on a stick. He will screw anything or anyone he can force to their knees. There is definitely some hardcore action in this book, but guess what. Vampire Trinity is definitely in my TBR stack. (less)

Denise is feeling a little "bleh" so when she starts having smoldering erotic dreams of a stranger doing wonderfully naughty things to her, she doesn't mind so much. When she meets her dream man in reality, she begins to worry a little. After all they were just dreams, weren't they? Beautifully crafted and not overly graphic, this is a stunning piece of couples or romantic erotica. The Mask has a playful sense of adventure and eroticism that will draw the reader in for the short time it takes to read this. I may go out and by a few new masks just to see what happens.(less)
