My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I have a mission. Kill the man who kidnapped me. Kill the guards who raped me. I have guns and knives and I’m not afraid to use them. Nothing will stop me.

Then I walk into a bar and I notice him. He is gorgeous. For four long years, my only response to anything sexual has been revulsion and fear. This time, it feels different.

I could use him. I want to use him. I could sleep with him and make a pleasurable memory as a counterpoint to the painful ones. I’m not a frightened young girl anymore. I’m a trained assassin, capable of killing him with my bare hands.

This time, I’ll be in control.

He’s just supposed to be a distraction, this mysterious man in the bar that I have a one-night stand with. But I can’t predict the secrets he is hiding… secrets that are about to intersect my world in painful, unanticipated, and dangerous ways.

Kayla Stonor – Hunted By Treaty (Review & Excerpt)

Hunted By Treaty by Kayla Stonor

Series: Qui Treaty Collection #3
Source: Review by Request
Copy Provided by Agent
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

His touch unleashes her heritage. Hiding is no longer an option.

After decades of war, the Qui Empress ushers in a new era when she takes a human tribute as her price for a peace treaty with Earth. She orders the surrender of all human prisoners of war.

Butchered and broken, Raiss Tyrone has escaped his K’lahn captors and is running for his life. The arrival of a Qui warship in orbit sparks an intense man hunt. A K’lahn garrison is out in force, chasing him down. His only hope is a strange, insecure half-breed woman, part human, part K’lahn.

Crendea has never come to terms with her shape shifting affliction, a genetic aberration from her K’lahn father. She lives with the shame, terrified of exploring the full extent of her heritage. Now a single look from Raiss Tyrone, lust in his eye, and her sparkling lizard scaling bursts forth. His delicious scent and warm touch ripples a terrifying change across her body, and neither of them are prepared for the genetic frenzy they are about to unleash.

This sexy romance tale is the third story in a collection inspired by Under By Treaty, a science fiction romance in Kayla Stonor’s Surrender collection. Each tale in the Qui Treaty Collection is a standalone short story or novella set in the Qui galactic empire, with annihilation of mankind held at bay only through the Treaty consummated between the Qui Empress and the human consort abducted under its terms.

Kayla Stonor – Restrain By Treaty (Review & Excerpt)

Restrain By Treaty by Kayla Stonor

Series: Qui Treaty Collection #2
Source: Review by Request
Copy Provided by Agent
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

He hides his true form to spare her sanity. Will the truth destroy them, or is love truly blind?

After decades of war, the Qui Empress ushers in a new era when she takes a human tribute as her price for a peace treaty with Earth. She orders the surrender of all human prisoners of war.

Ardant’s mission is to retrieve Captain Bea Solomon and bring her safely home. He finds Bea at the mercy of a flesh dealer, so mistreated that the sight of Ardant’s winged lizard form terrifies her. To gain her trust and rescue both her mind and body, Ardant makes a decision that traps him in a lie.

Bea recovers in his care, blissfully unaware her savior is not the man she is growing to love. Ardant is Qui, a member of the shapeshifter alien race who once ordered the decimation of Earth. Attractions collide, pheromones explode, and Ardant clings to his human form by the shreds of his failing willpower. At his wit’s end, he enlists Bea’s help to restrain his baser needs… but this Captain enjoys having a handsome man bound and at her mercy.

As passions rise and Ardant’s deception fractures, he faces the approaching reckoning. For no restraint can protect Bea from the devastating truth waiting to destroy her delicate peace of mind.

This sexy romance tale is the second short story in a collection inspired by Under By Treaty, a science fiction and erotic romance in Kayla Stonor’s Surrender collection.

Katy Regnery – Bidding on Brooks (Review & Excerpt)

Bidding on Brooks by Katy Regnery

Series: The Winslow Brothers #1
Source: Review by Request
ARC Provided by the Author
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Bidding on Brooks is the first of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Preston. He’s been down that road before and still has the scars to prove it. And maybe Cameron, because he’s super hot, but too hot-headed to be decent boyfriend material…)

Railroaded into a bachelor auction by his sister, Jessica, Brooks Winslow asks his friend, Skye Sorenson, to bid on him to avoid the possibility of any romantic entanglements. Fiercely competitive and protective of those he cares for, Brooks was profoundly affected by the loss of his father at an early age. A witness to his mother’s terrible loneliness and his siblings’ grief, the ex-Olympian has never allowed himself to fall in love.

Skye Sorenson, the plucky mechanic at Sorenson Marina, where Brooks moors his three sailboats, is a credible sailor in her own right…and has quietly lusted after Brooks for years. But her longstanding friendship with Brooks has always made romance seem impossible.

When Skye agrees to bid on Brooks, the two cast off for a weeklong ocean adventure on Brooks’ sailboat, The Zephyr, where the last thing Skye expects to lose is her heart.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers!

Harper Miller – Ironic (Review & Excerpt)

Ironic by Harper Miller

Series: The Kinky Connect Chronicles, #1
Source: Review by Request
ARC Provided by the Author
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

I’ve got a funny story for you. A funny story I need to get off my chest. I can’t share it with any of my friends so, I’m sharing it on a kinky message board full of strangers. Well, it is the Internet …

Although the Internet provides a sense of anonymity, names have been changed to protect the innocent (and not so innocent). Job related details have been distorted to protect my identity, but despite the ambiguous details, this is a true story. A story very worthy of the acronym FML.

*Disclaimer* This is a short erotic comedy. Not a novelette, novella, or novel but a short story.

Ironic is the first installment in The Kinky Connect Chronicles. The Kinky Connect Chronicles are short erotic stories all wrapped up in a neat little bow. No cliffhangers in the lot!

All the Storm episodes in ONE Boxed Set!

Timothy Banks is Hollywood’s hottest star. He is funny, charming and utterly sexy.

I probably shouldn’t have named my vibrator after him.

I probably shouldn’t have started playing BDSM games with him.

Yet I did all these things. I’m the girl who runs a pizza shop in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Population 2700.

And I’m about to find out that Tim Banks and I live in very different worlds…
