The Angel

I don’t usually read erotica or erotic romance, but I knew before going in that a book byTiffany Reisz would have great characters and witty dialogue. So because of a reading slump, I picked up The Angel, the second book in her Original Sinners series. It was as good (and evil, in some ways) as I ...

Strong, Silent Type

A sexy marriage-in-trouble story, Strong, Silent Type is a quick but satisfying read. Misunderstandings have pushed librarian Libby and rancher Quinn McKay apart, but grappling with infertility is the root cause of most of their issues. It was nice to read a marriage-in-trouble story that didn’ ...

Sunstone Vol.1-5

Can a BDSM f/f romance, written and illustrated by a man be the sweetest, funniest, and most romantic thing you’ve read this year? The answer is a surprising but resounding yes. Lisa Williams has always had a bondage kink, but she’s limited herself to solo experimentation and writing erotic s ...

The Red

As I read Tiffany Reisz’s The Red, at different times I was admiring, disappointed, spellbound, and horrified. At no point, though, did I want to stop. I doubt I’ll read it again, but damned if memorable quotes from it aren’t stuck in my head somehow. Mona Lisa St. James owns an art gallery ...

Desperate Measures

How to describe this book? If you took Katee Robert’s The O’Malley’s series and mixed it up with Aladdin and then added a few heaped spoonfuls of smut (and please know I say smut with the utmost positivity), you’d have Desperate Measures. The book is light on world-building and heavy on kink ...

The Rose

I'm a big fan of pretty much anything Tiffany Reisz writes, so I was ecstatic to receive a copy of The Rose, her latest novel, for review. It's a follow-up to 2017's The Red - which I loved - so I settled in fully expecting to be swept away by this one. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out to be quite ...

Dirty English

As a fervent anglophile and Janeite, I was ALL in to read Ilsa Madden-Mills’s Pride & Prejudice-inspired steamy New Adult romance, Dirty English the first in her British Bad Boys series. I was instantly hooked by the epigraph - “You have bewitched me, body and soul.” Reading Mr. Darcy ...

Passion & Ink

If you do a social media survey of which current romance authors write the hottest sex scenes, there's a more than reasonable likelihood that Naima Simone will be on that list. Her tales run the gamut from suspenseful, to emotional, to fun and flirty but never fail to entertain. With her entries in ...
