Four lessons, no strings…
Detective Rafe Davenport has always made Courtney DeLollis uneasy. While her instincts whisper, Touch him, her mind says, Run. But since she learned that he’s dominant in the bedroom, she hasn’t been able to forget about it. She should be appalled—she knows all too well what happens when a man has too much control—but a deeper, darker part of her is fascinated...
And so is Rafe. The sexual tension between them is thick enough to touch, and damn, does he want to touch. So he suggests something that will benefit them both. Four scenes—because anything more is a relationship, and Rafe won’t go there ever again. Each scenario is designed to tease and torment. To show Courtney that with every submission comes the reward of scintillating pleasure. But once he has Courtney down on her knees, Rafe realizes that she might be the one woman capable of bringing him to his…

Ever fantasized about a man in uniform? Or maybe had a little bedroom play with a uniform? Or even just thought it was sexy as hell?! Then Down on Her Knees is the book for you! 

The Mason Dixon Line by Linda Morris (Guest Post)

Thanks for having me here today on Reading between the Wines. My New Adult/contemporary romance, The Mason Dixon Line, features probably my favorite character I've ever created, the hero, Mason Dixon. (Yes, that's his real name.) Without further ado, here are the Top Ten things I love about this character:

10. His name. His parents had a perverse sense of humor and didn't mind giving him a name they knew would get him teased. Some of the other things they did to him, like giving him to an aunt to raise when his learning disabilities and behavior problems became too much for them to handle, weren't quite as funny.

9. He's an artist. Specifically, a cartoonist. I love a hero with a creative side.

8. He has a pet chameleon named Barney, after Barney Rubble, the first cartoon character Mason ever learned to draw.

Five dishonored soldiers.Former Special Forces.One last mission.These are the men of Hard Ink.

For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed.

Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation. Nor can he walk away from Crystal. The gorgeous waitress is hiding secrets she doesn't want him to uncover. Too bad. He's exactly the man she needs to protect her sister, her life, and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this good, you hold on as hard as you can--and never let go.

Claimed by a Demon King (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 2)
Felicity Heaton
The moment the demon King Thorne of the Third Realm set eyes on the mortal huntress Sable, he knew she was his fated one. The fiery, dangerous female awakened hungers he had never experienced before, a dark craving and passion that has consumed him in their time apart. As the lunar cycle wanes, she enters his world again and nothing will stand in the way of him claiming his forever with her—not the relentless assault from the Fifth Realm or the dark elf male determined to seduce her out of his grasp.
Intent on achieving the coveted position of commander at Archangel, Sable leads her small team into the dark underworld and the Third Realm, to a war where her allies are the very creatures she normally hunts—vampires, werewolves, and demons. Her eagerness to lead the deadly mission has everything to do with winning her promotion, and nothing to do with the kingdom’s brash, lethally seductive demon king—a king who stirred fierce desire and wildfire heat in her with just a look and an innocent touch when they first met, and has been in her wicked dreams ever since.
As the gathering storm between rivals unleashes irresistible passion that flares white-hot and the heat of the battle brings life-shattering realisations, can Sable place her duty before her heart? Or will she surrender to her deepest desires and be claimed by a demon king?
Claimed by a Demon King is available from Amazon Kindle, Kobo Books, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBooks stores and other retailers. Also available in paperback. Find the links to your preferred retailer at:

A Devil Named DeVere is a full length compilation of the novellas featuring Diana and DeVere: The Devil You Know, The Devil’s Match, and A Devil’s Touch, with the addition of select scenes from A Wild Night’s Bride and The Virgin Huntress. Part I: The Devil You KnowWhen Ned, Annalee, and her cousin, Diana, arrive at DeVere’s estate for a weekend of horse racing, DeVere makes his interest in Diana acutely known. Diana’s twelve-year marriage is a mockery. She feels unfulfilled and undesirable, making her all too vulnerable to DeVere’s dangerous charm. After events take an unexpected turn, Diana’ most erotic fantasies become reality when she seeks comfort and affirmation in the devil’s arms. Little does she know that the fire he ignites within her will burn long after she leaves Woodcote Park.Part II: The Devil’s MatchFour years later when Diana comes to London as her goddaughter’s chaperone, she desires to avoid her erstwhile lover at all costs. Nevertheless, she has no choice but to appeal to DeVere when Vesta mysteriously disappears. Ludovic’s time abroad has only served to deepen his debauchery. He’s become jaded, world-weary, and bored. He also recognizes that the marks of his discontent have only increased with Diana’s arrival. When she makes her appearance in his den of iniquity in all of her glorious self-righteous fury, he suddenly feels alive again. DeVere is once more hell-bent to have Diana back in his bed, while she will do whatever it takes to bring him to his knees.Part III: A Devil’s TouchIn her last month of pregnancy, Diana, Viscountess DeVere, has barely settled into her new life and role as “the devil” DeVere’s wife, when her increasingly restless husband receives an urgent summons to London. When Diana inadvertently discovers a message he received from a known courtesan with whom he was formerly linked, she fears her marriage is over before it has begun.

His rival’s in his bed, and this rocker is ready to play.

Former rivals Quinn Bradford and Elise McKinney are not friends, at least not anymore. As teens, all they cared about was psyching each other out before concerts. But when Quinn—now the keyboardist for Shaken Dirty, the hottest rock band on the scene—returns to his hometown and hears about the car accident that shattered Elise’s career, he’s determined to make things right.

Elise wants nothing to do with an arrogant rock star, despite how bad she so clearly wants him, so Quinn kidnaps the stubborn little piano player and whisks her back to his mansion. A little seduction might be just the thing to keep Elise under his care…and in his bed. But amid pranks both childish and very adult, their past comes rearing back to haunt them. And it might be more than either of them can forget.



That was my crowd chant. LoL Wow, where to start? I loved every single moment of Drive Me Crazy! The story had me smiling and swooning all at the same time!

HARD AS YOU CAN is your second book in the “Hard Ink” series (after USA Today bestseller, HARD AS IT GETS). What can readers look forward to?

Readers can look forward to tons of sexy alpha male goodness, awesome bromance between the Hard Ink men, more antics from the Hard Ink puppy, and another great love story between Shane and Crystal. But readers should also be ready for a book that is darker, more intense, and more emotional. This book pushed me to emotional places that were tough as a writer, and might be tough for readers, too.

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate.

Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

One kiss could be the last. Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever. Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul. But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

I’m so excited to be here at Reading Between the Wines. I’m a proud wine drinker, even if my wine of choice is Blush wine. Don’t know what blush wine is? It’s a pink wine, usually Catawba grapes, with a light, sweet taste. My favorite!

My characters in the Zero, Ohio stories all end up at one time or another at Eight Ball Bar. I thought for my post today, I’d share a drink I concocted. I’m not sure if it’s a real drink. It might be. So what’s my drink?

Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect. 
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon. 
Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

The Raven's Kill by Ella Grey (Guest Post)

Please give a warm welcome to author, Ella Grey, joining us with her paranormal romance, THE RAVEN'S KILL. 

By Ella Grey

Where do you get your ideas from? It's a common enough question and one I've answered quite a few times. The first one is, I've got a troll living in my closet and he supplies me with story ideas as long as I supply him with cookies. The second one is, One minute I'm walking down the street and a big hammer hits me on the head, an idea appears fully formed, like Athena out of the skull of Zeus. That one usually gets me a wary stare as they slowly edge away from me whispering about straitjackets and if I escaped from the local asylum. Now the first two sound pretty fun but are completely false. No, I don't have a troll in my closet, it's an imp and he prefers bonbons.

Another Gift to Remember by Diane Thorne (Guest Post)

Please welcome author, Diane Thorne, joining us with her romance of ANOTHER GIFT TO REMEMBER. 

The worst winter in 18 years

I live in the Midwest, Indiana to be exact. Usually our winters are mild. Yes, we get some snow and cold temperatures, but for the most part the temps stay in double digits and the snow isn't bad. Well, the 2013/14 winter is one for the record books.

The last time I recall getting so much snow was the year I gave birth to my daughter, late 1995. Even though the snow was deep, the Government didn't shut down. In fact, the last time the Government shut all offices was during the blizzard of 1978. Well, that changed this year.

Party Girl  by Rachel Hollis
Goodreads | Amazon
Landon Brinkley is making her dreams come true. After years of poring over glossy photos of celebrity parties in People and US Weekly, she’s landed her Holy Grail: an internship with the fabulous Selah Smith, event planner to the Hollywood elite. Moving from small town Texas to Los Angeles, Landon finds herself in a world in which spending a million dollars on an event – even for kids’ birthdays – is de rigueur. The thrill of working on A-list parties and celeb weddings is enough to get her through the 75-hour workweeks, the nightmare of a multi-day film festival, and abuse at the hands of a mercurial boss. But confronted with the seamy realities of the business, she is forced to make a choice: do whatever it takes to get ahead, or stay true to herself.

A roman a clef in the vein of The Devil Wears Prada, PARTY GIRL draws on the author’s real life experience for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the celebrity-obsessed world of event planning. From the party habits of America’s favorite underage singer to the worst Bridezilla of all (the kind that graces the cover of your favorite magazine), PARTY GIRL reveals the ugly side of Hollywood’s prettiest parties.

Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.
Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.
As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…
