Lately I’ve been on a special romance sub-genre kick: devouring sport romances!
I’m sure that you have come across one of those stories where the hero and/or heroine are athletes, and while I have always enjoyed reading about sexy hunks as heroes, lately I’ve discovered this new addiction of mine. Be it sexy football player like Dean Silverthorne in Candis Terry’s Any Given Christmas, or the hunky hockey players like those in Lily Harlem’s Hot Ice series or Rachel Gibson’s Chinooks Hockey Team series, the irresistibly gorgeous soccer captain in Scored by Lily Harlem or star pitcher Park Jones in Nora Roberts’ Rules of the Game (the very first sporty hero I’ve read about), I love them all!
I’m not a sport fanatic, when the Olympics, European or World Cup football …

We’ll Be Home for Christmas by HelenKay Dimon
No man likes having his bedroom skills described as forgettable, but that’s just what Lila Payne does when she runs into Spencer Thomas again. When she discovers that he’d lied about his name during their brief …
Sure, you might find that it is still a bit early to think about Christmas and the holidays (though some of my fellow Book Lovers myself included don’t think such a thing is possible. Seriously, I count back the days ’till Christmas as soon as January rolls around 😉 ), but since there are so many of us we have to start early for everyone to get a chance to show their holiday wishlists. And who knows maybe you’ll get inspired for some gift ideas, either for yourself or your loved ones. 😉
So here are some holiday themed stories that caught my eye recently and that I can’t wait to get my hands on:
Dan Beckins isn’t sure how he let his best friend con him into volunteering to build Santa’s Winter Wonderland at the local hospital. He’s got no problems with charity …

Someone’s going to have to let down their guard…
Football star Cole Riley is notorious for doing as he pleases—on the field and off. He parties hard and fights harder, but if he doesn’t clean up his act, his career is over—so Cole reluctantly agrees to work with image makeover consultant Savannah Brooks. He’s not used to being told what to do, especially by some (admittedly hot) southern belle. As for Savannah, she’s not convinced she can transform this cocky (and aggressively sexy) force of nature. But she’s determined to give it …
Welcome to Part II of BLI’s Kink in Erotic Romance: Guilty Pleasure or Forbidden Fruit?
This week I’m going to be rambling um chatting about:
Voyeurism, Exhibitionism & Orgies…
To try and increase my knowledge before tackling this post I did some reading about voyeurism and exhibitionism from a clinical perspective and was surprised to discover that these fetishes fall under the psychiatric realm of paraphilias which are recurrent, intense, sexually-arousing fantasies, urges or behaviors generally involving nonhuman objects, the suffering or humiliation of oneself or one’s partner, or children or other non-consenting persons. Yikes! Hopefully in the hands of a good storyteller, we don’t find the suffering or humiliation of one’s partner or especially children in erotic romantic fiction. But the key word here is consensual.
In erotic romance, authors are at liberty …

Most people play by the rules. Gavin and Liz aren’t most people…
Win at any cost. That’s always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she’ll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She’s had a thing for this player’s moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants …

Football pro Mick Riley is an all-star, both on the field and in the bedroom. But a sexy, determinedly single mom just might be the one to throw him off his game…
For years Mick has been taking full advantage of the life available to a pro athlete: fame, fortune, and a different girl in every city. But when he meets and beds confident, beautiful event planner Tara Lincoln, he wants much more than the typical one-night stand. Too bad Tara’s not interested in getting to know football’s most notorious playboy any better.
As the single mother of …
