NO WORRIES by Lauren N. Sharman!


Lauren N. Sharman

Witnessing her mother's murder put a label on Gypsy Lance that few people overlooked. Raised in foster homes, she spent her childhood yearning for love and acceptance. Nearly penniless, she arrives in Hagerstown, Maryland looking to put down roots and outrun a past she fears is about to catch up with her.

Blue collar bad boy Rebel McCassey knows what it's like to try and escape your past. No longer the hellion he once was, he's never been able to shake his family's bad reputation. When he finds Gypsy lost in the woods, her unconditional trust and refusal to judge him by his infamous last name touch Rebel in a place he didn't know existed. . .his heart.

When the demons chasing Gypsy are caught lurking in the shadows, Rebel vows to keep her safe; even if it means slipping back into his old ways. . .

The entire McCassey clan captures your heart and brings you into their family. Every page made me want to keep reading and I am looking forward to the next book about this wild family of brothers and cousins.
Lauren Sharman has a homerun with this novel. Everything works and there is no slack in the writing. This is one of those books that had me reading from start to finish in one sitting. Reviewer: Kimberley Spinney

For the full review, visit:
In this story, you’ll meet all the McCasseys with whom will pull on your heartstrings as well as urge you to want to know even more about them.
No Worries is a deeply moving, heart wrenching and suspenseful story from beginning to end. Readers will thoroughly enjoy this read about a family from the wrong side of the tracks who are loyal to one another to a tee and are a law among themselves. You'll want to read why they’re the way they are and why they feel such a strong need to protect what’s theirs. Sensational is the only word to describe Lauren Sharman’s tale of suspense, vengeance, and family loyalty and last, but not least, two lost souls searching for a love they never thought possible! I was pulled in from the very first page and couldn’t put this down until I reached its end. I am looking forward to the reading more about this scrutinized close family that consists of Rebel’s brothers and cousins.

The Vampire Who Loved Me by Teresa Medeiros


by Teresa Medeiros

Avon Publishing

Available in bookstores everywhere.

ISBN: 978-0-06-076303-9

Julian Kane is back in Town.

Once, as a girl of seventeen, beautiful headstrong Portia Cabot saved the cursed life of the dashing vampire Julian Kane--who marked her forever, then left to go in search of his soul. He returns five years later to find the enchanting young girl he left behind grown into a bewitching woman with a woman's heart...and a woman's desires.

Portia quickly discovers that Julian's seductive and forbidden kiss can still make her crave the night...and his touch. But the Julian who has returned to London is not the vampire she remembers. His fruitless pursuit of his stolen mortality has reduced him to druken debauchery. And a recent spate of murders makes Portia fear that the man she always adored may truly be a monster.

Julian knows he must drive Portia away--but his passion and hunger for her grow more irresistible every time they touch. For years he has fought the temptation to embrace his dark gifts, never realizing that Portia's love may give him the most dangerous gift of all...a reason to live.

Arabian Pearl by Emma Wildes

Coming March 1st from Siren Publishing: Arabian Pearl by Emma Wildes!

Here's a tantalizing taste of Arabian Pearl, the first installment in The Brothers of the Absinthe Club series.
“I am leaving you now. I will come for her in the morning.” With that Lela moved in graceful silence across the room and slipped out the door, closing it behind her.
They will be watching as you bed her…Abdul’s warning rang in his head. If Robert spared Rushton’s young daughter, she was doomed. Neither could he simply sit down and explain the situation either. He’d found the small slits in the wall by the bed, cleverly worked into a mosaic relief, and not only would whoever sat there and covertly watched see them clearly, they could also hear anything that was said, he was sure. It would be an insult to his host if he explained to her he was only doing this because he was forced by her circumstances.
The situation was untenable, but there seemed little choice.
Was it rape, Robert wondered, if both parties are unwilling to perform the act?
Well, not precisely unwilling, he reminded himself wryly. He was almost fully hard, and as he approached the bed, he felt himself stiffen further. The beautiful nude woman waiting there was not a sight any man could ignore. She watched him, her lashes still lowered, and he could see the slight rapid beat of her pulse in her throat.
He smiled at her as he sat down on the edge of the bed and reached down to touch her cheek. “What’s your name?”
“Celia.” The answer was hushed almost inaudible.
Yes, that was it, he remembered now. Lady Celia Davenport. “You are lovely, Celia,” he told her, his fingers lightly tracing the full curve of her lower lip. Her mouth was pink and perfect and he urged her to a sitting position facing him, her long hair trailing over her slim shoulders. “I won’t hurt you,” he promised, leaning closer, brushing his mouth across hers.
Her eyes, azure blue at this close range, simply watched him. He kissed her again, a light pressure, tasting her.
“Tell me, where are you from?” he asked for their unwanted audience.
The slight shake of her head told him that she had obviously been instructed to keep silent about her background. “I see,” he murmured, not touching her in anyway except for the drift of his mouth across her jaw. “Can you speak with me at all?”
“If you ask me a question, my lord, I will answer it if I am allowed.”
Inhaling her delicate fragrance, Robert slipped his arm around her waist and brought her closer, into his embrace. Her breasts pressed against his partially open robe and he could feel the warmth of her smooth, pliant skin. Whispering in her ear, hoping it looked as if he was continuing his gentle wooing and trying to ease her fears, he said, “Do not react in any way to what I am about to say, please, but I know your father. I hope only you can hear me say this.”
To her credit, she showed no outward sign of a reaction, but he felt it. Her heartbeat increased and her breathing changed slightly. He moved his mouth to her neck, pressing against that quickened pulse, before sliding upward again. With delicate care, he nibbled on her earlobe, the movement of his lips concealed by her silken hair. “I am trying to free you, but we must do this. If you understand, put your arms around me.”
Her arms slid around his waist.
“And you have to submit completely or you’ll be here forever.”
He hoped only he heard the small sound she made, a sob caught in the back of her throat. Rushton’s pretty daughter had courage, he found then, for she said in a throaty voice that would due credit to any harem girl, “You are very handsome, my lord. I hope I please you well. Whatever you ask, it is my pleasure to give it.”
Review for Arabian Pearl from Romance Junkies:
Emma Wildes' BROTHERS OF THE ABSINTHE CLUB series is off to abrilliant start with this gem of a tale. ARABIAN PEARL satisfies thatwicked fantasy that many women have of being kidnaped and thrust intothe life of a harem girl while still retaining a sense ofindependence and a hope for freedom. I love how Celia changesthroughout the storyline - she goes from a shy virgin to a selfconfident young woman who rejoices in her own sexuality. Robert'sblatant adoration of Celia really endears him to me.ARABIAN PEARL captured my interest from the very first page and heldme enthralled right to the end. I can hardly wait to find out whichof the other men tells his story of daring sexual exploits in THEBLOODSTONE AFFAIR which is due to be released in April 2007.

Diabolique by Desiree Erotique

Title: Diabolique
ISBN: 978-1-59632-406-0
Author: Desiree Erotique
Cover Artist: Croco Designs
Price: $4.99
About:Recently Phillippe LaFaire witnessed several young village women making love together in an open field. This spectacle left the intellectual tutor more desirous than ever for one of them, auburn-haired Tatiane. But when they are alone at last, not even Tatiane’s confessed passion for Phillippe can dint his sense of propriety. Only the next day, when Phillippe hears of Tatiane’s tragic death, does he begin to realize what a fool he’s been.
There is something that just doesn’t feel right about Tatiane’s death, and Phillippe comes away from her paganish funeral feeling the weight of guilt. When Phillippe is told by Tatiane’s grandmother that the girl wasn’t killed but turned into a vampire his rational view of the world collapses. The grandmother explains that Phillippe has the power to save Tatiane from the clan of vampires that took her. To accomplish this Phillippe must be prepared to use one of the magical formulas found in his library of arcane manuscripts.
But there is one other requisite: that Phillippe abandon his provinciality forever and resolve to claim Tatiane as his pleasure trophy.
It was Tatiane, my kittenish Tatiane, who had offered in life the warmth of desire that I’d so callously, so coldly, turned my back on. As lovely as always, her presence was as real as if she had never died. My stomach knotted with dread; my heart pounded with guilt. Tears burned at my eyes, and as they fell, she licked them from my cheeks. I wanted to speak her name and demand an explanation, but my speech seemed entirely under her control.
Her thighs slipped over the armrests of the chair and she lowered her knees beside my unmoving legs. She began to undulate over my lap, so that her auburn hair whipped my shoulders and her nubile breasts bobbed before my eyes. I was possessed with the smoldering urge to lift her up, throw her across my lap, and deliver the chastisement I should have dealt her that day in the classroom.
The thought of it honed my passion to an almost painful need. She must have suspected my thoughts, for her eyes lowered a moment. As they rose again, she smiled that kittenish smile I so adored, then reached between her thighs and unbuttoned my trousers. Drawing my cock out, she stroked its hardened length, which brought the most delighted purr to her lips.
She tilted forward a little and rubbed her moist slit back and forth across me, tantalizing my need sorely. I longed to suckle her nipples and devour her breasts with my mouth. Instead, I had to endure her husky coo as she tore apart the buttons from my shirt. She flicked her fingernails across my nipples, licking and sucking them until they panged, then Tatiane pulled my trousers down over my hips. Her pelvis and pert bottom rose and, holding my shoulders, she mounted me. Her nether mouth swallowed the length of my cock. Tight was her sheath, and she rode gingerly, pouting ever so softly, leaving me with no doubt that this was a virgin who ravished me.
I no longer heard the words that continued to flow from my mouth. My muscles tensed as my thoughts focused wholly on her almost cruelly slow strides. My jism shot into her, so that the next word stifled in my throat. She heard and kissed me tenderly, inhaling the word from my throat. With kisses she drank the rest of the alchemic procedure as the words spilt forth -- every addendum and comment of the text, which I had memorized. And when she had devoured the final remark, my consciousness faded.
“Phillippe, Phillippe, we are not finished! Phillippe ...”
My eyes opened to her rueful gaze. She kissed me until I was roused to full consciousness. It was then I felt the blood of her maidenhead on my balls. I still could not move of my own volition, and watched as her pelvis ground over my spent cock. Her nether muscles clenched it desperately as she weaved up and down, and very soon my passion was coaxed back.

In Plain Sight by Gracie C. McKeever!

Back Cover Blurb:

When Samantha Taylor dropped out of her senior year of college to marry gorgeous and almost ten years her senior Dawson Foster, she never knew what she was getting into. But Sam is a quick study, and a year into her marriage, she prepares to remove her unborn baby and herself from a bad situation before it's too late. A headlong tumble down some stairs, however, violently nips her plans in the bud. But someone upstairs has other plans for Sam in the form of rough-and-ready, newly-expired bounty hunter, Dara Kelly.

Twice-divorced, Dara Kelly doesn't want to get married again, not even to luscious, Cuban-Irish Caution Foster. An African-American woman, she thrives in a profession where men set the rules, garnering respect and a tough reputation to match. But along with respect comes envy and enemies who will stop at nothing to gain a bounty…not even murdering a fellow skip tracer.

Review Snippet:

5 Kisses:

"Gracie C. McKeever possesses an incredible imaginative ability and the gift to make any type of paranormal element, no matter how unusual, appear perfectly realistic and [acceptable]. With any of her stories, there is never a question of the reader's suspension of disbelief, it occurs immediately, naturally, and very smoothly. Her action is fast-paced, and her characters are well-delineated. We come to know them as well as we understand our own friends and family, if not better.

Any book by Ms. McKeever is well worth a first read and subsequent rereads, but in the opinion of this reviewer In Plain Sight is one of her best!" —

Clean Cure by Desiree Erotique!

Clean Cure by Desiree Erotique

Title: Clean Cure

Author: Desiree Erotique

Publisher: Loose-Id

Publication date: January, 2007

Genre: BDSM Erotic Contemporary


Nolan and Colleen have a consensual Master/slave relationship, so when he goes away to Iran, Colleen’s understandably distressed at the loss of her Master. Now that he’s home, she’s having a bit of trouble readjusting.
Colleen’s picked up a few displeasing habits since he left. Crude language and the failure to address him as ‘Master’ among them. But Nolan’s not distressed. He knows just how to cure her: a belt, a bar of soap, and her fear that the neighbors might get to witness her punishment.

Publisher’s Note: Clean Cure is a nontraditional romance that contains elements that may be offensive to some readers: punishment, spanking, BDSM.

Review snippet:Two Lips Reviews:

(Rating: 4 Lips)

Clean Cure is a touching story that really brings to light the emotions and worries of the family members left behind to wait while a loved one is at war defending his country. The relationship between Nolan and Colleen is expressed in an eloquent beautiful manner. Desiree Erotique does a wonderful job of capturing Colleen's emotions regarding Nolan's return and his absence. The sexual chemistry is almost as strong as the emotions portrayed in this relationship. Clean Cure is a short story that will leave you feeling good and turned on too.

A Christmas To Remember by Destiny Blaine

A web of deception is about to begin.

Follow the lives of Cassie and Corby Teller from the start as Cassie meets and decides to marry a NFL football superstar ready to give her everything she could ever want knowing the whole time he is buying her love.

A Christmas to Remember tells the story of love, friendship, and being able to have it all.

Unfortunately, what Cassie Teller perceives as having it all falls somewhere between the love she has for one man and the lust she has for another…

Here's an excerpt: ....... I realized my phone still had the speaker mic light on. Shit. I clicked the end button and hoped Corby had not just witnessed the whole sex romp with Steve. We both had been pretty vocal about what we wanted from the other one and there would be no denying the fact that we were sleeping together if Corby hadn’t hung up the phone on his end when we said good-night.

Tired from passion, exhausted by confusion and destined to sleep, I fell into bed and forgot about the phone.
In Cleveland though, it was a different story. Corby sat on the bed staring at the speaker phone. He had heard every whimper, every sexual request and every moan. He was motionless and angry. Most of all, he was hurt......:

A Christmas to Remember was recently reviewed by Romance at Heart Magazine ( ) and Rose said "It is sexy, fun, happy, sad, and altogether a very delightful romp and I suggest you go get a copy of A Christmas to Remember!"

Readers can buy the short story from Mardi Gras Publishing at

Stay tuned for info on Destiny Blaine's website, coming soon.

Spiral by Nikki Watson!

'Spiral' is a Contemporary Romance by Nikki Watson,

Available at Aphrodite's Apples.
Buy info page:


When Elena loses her first love, it breaks a part of her, and changes her for a time. She begins to use all those who had been close to her, all those she loved, and suddenly turns away from them, bringing herself into a kind of downward spiral. 'Spiral' is a story that doesn't end in a conventional HEA; it's a Hopeful Ever After, as opposed to a Happily Ever After, but the main character does find a sense of peace in herself before the end.


A song was playing, but Elena didn't really listen to it. She was hearing a different beat in her head, one that echoed with the sensation of too much alcohol drunk in too little a time, mixed with the intoxication of dancing front to front with Stephanie.

Her eyes trailed around the room in distant interest, mainly trying to see where those wolf whistles were coming from. What she caught sight of was Timoth standing, watching from the sidelines, but not partaking. His eyes had taken in how she and Stephanie were dancing together. Elena and Stephanie turned a half circle in their dance, and Elena extended her arm invitingly to Timoth.

Del's attention was already fully taken over by a boy. He had taken up the position of dancing behind her. Both his arms wrapped around her possessively and his eyes stared down her body—breasts, shoulders, bare midriff and fishnet-stockinged legs— from over her shoulder. Del had an expression of bliss on her face as she closed her eyes and gave herself to the wandering hands of her boy as they edged up slightly under the clothing covering her top, and touched bare skin. The boy was pressed up flush against her, with plenty of room still behind him, and the way they were making love on the dance floor made Elena, with Stephanie, feel positively chaste.

Timoth advanced towards Elena and Stephanie, not even looking at Del and her boy as she passed them. Stephanie pointed them out happily to Elena, saying in her ear that this was the boy Del had been trying to get the interest of, ever since she had moved to Christchurch. Elena was amused, remembering Del's former cynicism when they had been together in Ireland. It seemed more than what was on the surface had changed since Ireland.

Arriving behind Elena, Timoth reached out to grasp Elena's hips and draw her back to him, starting to grind his body against Elena, and she pulled an expression of mirth at Stephanie. Rising her eyebrows in response to the challenge, Stephanie stepped closer to Elena again, and the three of them started dancing against each other.

The music changed to something with a harsher beat, and at the start, Elena wasn't quite sure how to respond to that. Timoth was the one who solved that problem, with a direct hold on her hip with one hand, followed by his other hand gripping her just at the side of her breast. His third movement was a pelvis thrust against her butt, pulling her towards him with his other holds on her, and the beat of the music working to his advantage. Stephanie had a hold on both of Elena's hands, trying to draw a willing Elena closer towards her, but Timoth's hold was too firm. She writhed against the feel of him at the back of her, attempting to draw Stephanie towards her if she couldn't be drawn closer to Stephanie. Stephanie stepped forward, kissing Elena on the lips. Then she let go of one of Elena's hands and waved at Elena, before relinquishing her other hand, quietly reminding Elena that she had known Timoth far too long to find the idea of the three of them wrapped in each others' limbs sexy, and stepping off the dance floor, leaving Elena and Timoth alone.

His hold on Elena didn't loosen. Her head leaned back against him, gasping at the painful pull he inflicted upon her body in his firm grasping to get her closer against him. They danced against each other shamelessly, perspiring after several sets, not from the mindless jumping around that most others on the floor indulged in, but from the sexual tension between the two of them. In the moments that she had his attention, that was the only thing that mattered.

Charade by Sabrina Luna


A D/s Erotica Fantasy
By Sabrina Luna

Now Available at Aphrodite's Apples

Through a mutual agreement, Dixie becomes the protégéof Mitchell Wilcox, a gentle, but firm benefactor.Under his loving guidance, Dixie explores theboundaries of her sexual fantasies and her mostintimate desires.


“What is your name, girl?” Samson spoke, his voice rumbling through the silence and breaking through her churning thoughts.

He moved towards her. His movements were feline and full of grace. The dark-haired man was wearing no more than a pair of loose fitting gold lameslacks and a bejeweled pair of sandals on his feet. The soft lighting of the room played over the fineform of his muscles as they moved under his flesh. He was taut and fit, a prime example of the male physique.

Dixie felt the heat once again consume herbody. Her nipples stiffened in response to his gaze,as if begging for Samson’s attention.“Dixie, sir.”

“Dixie?” His eyes gleamed as a smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. “I’ve heard of you. You are the protégé of Mr. Wilcox; am I correct?”

“Yes, sir.”

“I am Samson, a pupil of Lady Athena, whom you’ve already had the pleasure of meeting this evening.” The husky man stood in front of her, filling her vision with his strong presence. “It will be a real pleasureto play with you, Miss Dixie.”

“Thank you, Samson, sir.” Dixie meekly replied.

An uncomfortable silence fell between them. The air in the room seemed to shimmer as the classical background music washed over her senses. Her own impatience unnerved her. She was tired of the soirée and the‘club rules’. All she wanted was to go home. Home?

The mere thought of returning back into Mitchell’s arms made her heart skip a beat. Her benefactor made her feel special, loved and cared for. His home was where she felt she truly belonged.

With quiet resolve, Dixie decided to be patient and play along…it was the onlyway.

“You are very beautiful, girl,” Samson’s polite etiquette dissolved, the look in his eyes revealing a man on the very edge of lust.

Dixie noticed the unmistakable oblong shape in his pants. It was solid and pressing against the fine fabric. Dixie drew a deep breath and quickly drew her gaze away from the man’s crotch.

Samson chuckled. “And I see that you have a lusty eye, too.”

Dixie blushed, feeling the warm tingle of embarrassment wash over her from head to toe.

Samson stepped behind her. The man’s large hand slid effortlessly around her waist, pressing her nakedness against him. His flat, firm palm pressed against the softness of Dixie’s belly. The warmth from Samson’s hand subliminally branded her as his play toy. Dixie felt powerless in the larger man’s shadow. Samson’s breath was hot on her ear as he drew his fingers up to her nipple rings and gave the circlet of gold a tender, yet firm tug.

Dixie let out a low moan as pain bittersweetly mingled with pleasure. The sensual shockwaves rippled through her entire body.

“So, how do you suppose I should correct you, girl?”

“I-I don’t know, sir.” Dixie whispered in a shaky voice.

The animalistic heat that radiated from the sensual man had sent a current of pure desire riveting through her. As she tried desperately to get her bearings, the door to the room clicked open. Its sudden opening startled Dixie, but she dared not turnaround.

ISBN: 0-9785368-5-1
Genre: Historical Romance
Time Period: 1863 to 1865

The Confederate army is starving and badly in need of clothing. Add to that the mounting numbers of battle casualties, a lack of medical supplies, and army surgeon, Captain Daniel Reid, of the Twenty-Fifth Virginia, knows he has to take action, no matter the consequences.

Charlotte Garrett loses her husband and her identity when she takes on the guise of a Southern soldier. Learning to march, fight, and even spit like a man is to be expected. But what she doesn’t expect to find is a situation that leads her into the arms of a new man and into big, big trouble with the North and South!

Some Creatures are born of an existence where the lines of life and death, right and wrong are experienced only in shades of black and white. Existences where life is as simple as a mother's love, or a father's warm embrace. They live in relative safety behind their familiar walls with the warmth and comfort of hearth and home on some clean street in some rural community; where love is always present and the viloence of crime and man's depravity can't touch them; a place where evil and all the dark creatures that go bump in the night are just fairy tales told on stormy evenings to frighten you children in their dreams. But have you ever wondered what happens when the lines bleed and the creatures bump back? Ever wondered who is there in the dead of the night when the monster in the closet is real and he's come with a hunger? Worried, that he knows your name? My name is Rihker Tennai, in the Other World they call me Justice - and this is my Realm."Vampires, Ogres, Goblins and Weres! Talk about your other-worldlygenetically dysfunctional flamily. If I didn't need this blood in my veinsI might just consider giving it to some damn vamp." ~ Riker Tennai - Bounty Hunter

Our first guest author!

Hello everyone,

Our first guest author in The Romance Room is Bonnie Clarke! She has a new release out this month from Whiskey Creek Press/Torrid. Here's the cover & a little about her book.

The Wrong Man

Deception, greed, and even the violent forces of nature couldn't keep them apart...
Cade Kildare was wild, untamable, sexy as hell, and definitely the wrong man for her.

Why couldn't Avia Rockwell just forget him and make the right marriage her father wanted for her?

If he never set eyes on that stubborn, infuriating piece of baggage again, Cade would be perfectly happy. Or would he? A determined bachelor, he didn't want any part of a proper young woman from a good family. The trouble was, Avia was not at all proper, and he knew it better than anyone. Yes, he should have never played with fire, but now that he was burned, he was addicted...

From the serene vineyards of Northern California's wine country to the catastrophe of the San Francisco earthquake, two lovers battle each other and the evil forces bent on tearing them apart

5 Angels
"I loved this book so much that it took my breath away for Bonnie Clarke did a remarkable job in bringing so much love, sadness and heartache to two people."
