Trusting Love by Bili Jean



Robert McNeil survived in a world filled with death and very little more until…

Kristen Sawyer wanted nothing more than to forget everyone and everything after the death of her daughter. The last thing she ever expected was to find the one man she’d never been able to have or forget—falling at her feet.

When Robert woke up and discovered that he’d passed out from his wounds at Kristen Sawyer’s home, he knew he’d found the way to hold on—and to begin again. Now, all he had to do was eliminate the men trying to keep them apart, destroy the toxic drug in his system, and somehow make her want to trust in love.

Reader Advisory: This book contains BDSM, inference of non-consensual sex and violence.

Till Betrayal by Avril Ashton



It takes outside forces, and the threat of losing it all, before this trio can set aside their differences and accept how much they need each other.

Remi Parascu has unearthed a traitor in the midst of the Council she oversees. Armed with evidence, on her way to request a kill order, Remi’s plane is crashed, her bodyguards are killed and she’s taken hostage. Things would be a whole lot simpler if her captor had been the traitor.

Jaguar shifter Czion Whitehall has distanced himself from his family and the woman he recognizes as his mate. There’s no way he can be with the President of the Council, so Czion walks away without ever cementing the bond with Remi. The absence of that bond makes it much easier for someone else to swoop in and take his place.

As a skin walker, able to take on the appearance of anyone, Jaxon Fenti wears the face of a man Remi can’t resist in an effort to get the name of the person who killed his brother. What Jax didn’t count on was Remi being one-third of his Trinity, and a stubborn jaguar being the one to complete their triad. Czion wants nothing to do with any of it, and Remi and Jax can’t make it without him. It takes outside forces, and the threat of losing it all, before this trio can set aside their differences and accept how much they need each other.

Reader Advisory: This book is a MMF ménage story with MM scenes. It contains scenes of dubious consent and non-consensual sex, rough sex and bloodplay.

Passion at the Castle by Diane Thorne



Desires explored and revealed.

Gwenevere is in Ireland for the last stop on her European vacation. The peace and solitude at the luxurious Dromoland Castle is nice, but she misses the company of a lover, especially the ones she has met along her journey. Her time alone comes to a quick end when a young man and woman ask Gwen to have brunch with them. She joins them and soon discovers they are far more interested in her than she could have imagined. They find her attractive and invite her to a threesome.

The request stuns Gwen and she is hesitant to hook up with them. No married couple, let alone a woman, has never approached her before. She reflects on the opportunities she’s taken during her trip. All the brief sexual encounters had left her with incredibly satisfying experiences. Why should this new prospect be any different?

Gwen takes her chances and the playful couple show her intense passion that leaves her hungering for more. She spends the remainder of her stay with them and learns that love from a woman is just as enjoyable as it is from a man.

Reader Advisory: This book contains graphic sex, language and a brief F/F sex scene.
