TOUR:Release Blitz Caressed by Night by Amanda J Greene

Hosted by Bewitching Book Tours..

Caressed by Night
Rulers of Darkness #2
By Amanda J Greene


Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundred years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri.

Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

Review: Sandman by Morgan Hannah Macdonald

Part of today's earlier Promo Spot (Bewitching Book Tours). In case you missed it, its HERE along with the book blurb....

Published:February 2012
Format: eBook (Review)
Available: Amazon, CreateSpace

My Review:

It’s always a wonderful thing to read a GOOD book in a particular Genre you haven’t read in a while. Sandman was that for me. While I haven’t read any murder/mystery in quite a bit, I was taken away with the writing style of the author. She never left me guessing or scratching my head while reading (well as far as story and character development).
This story was properly detailed and there was nothing left out. You got the impression (or at least I did) that you were in the story with Meagan and J.J. while they tried to figure out who the Sandman was and who his next victim was going to be. I really love this book (and I know I say that a lot, but this was just an amazingly GOODread).
Meagan and J.J were perfect together. You have a strong heroine, a bad-ass cop and a psycho ser…

A painful personal experience makes Lord Lockhart believe that a gentleman doesn't inflict his passionate desires on a wife. The marriage bed is for begetting heirs, not animal lust. No matter how much he desires his wife. But under Lady Lockhart's shyness is a determination to tempt her handsome husband, to satisfy them both and spend every night together in her bed.

Innocent waltzing lessons in their chambers soon become indecent, and may lead the newlyweds to overcome their preconceptions and learn to be lovers, as well as man and wife.

Guest Blog: Skye Warren ~ Trust in Me

Today, Skye Warren will take over to talk about The Sound of Dark Erotica. Welcome Skye and she's all yours...

The Sound of Dark Erotica
By Skye Warren

Thank you for having me! I'm excited to share the playlist for my dark erotica release, Trust in Me. My taste in music is somewhat eclectic and I think that overflows into my writing as well. I always write erotic because, well, I have a dirty mind. And most song lyrics have a dirty connotation as well, at least to me.

The genre of Trust in Me is officially dark erotica, which is a necessity because it contains explicit sex and graphic violence, taboo sexual scenarios and captivity themes. It has strong elements of suspense. I’ve heard it called an erotic thriller and erotic horror, both of which are accurate enough when you look at it from the right angle. And, of course, romance. There is also a strong romance thread, although erotic romance on its own would be too soft a descriptor. So, with all of this suspense and violence and…

Book Spotlight ~ Playing the Game

Hosted by Sizzling PR, today I'm shining my salaciously bright light on Stephanie Queen's Playing The Game.

Book Blurb:
What would happen if the “priest” of basketball, the man most admired by all dedicated superstar athletes, Barry Dennis, met his match?
And his match was a woman?
Roxanne didn’t set out to figure what made the superstar tick, but she found out.
Playing the Game: about more than a ball


“Damn it,” Roxanne muttered. Her drink had splashed on her dress. The crowd was dense. Looking right, and then left, at the partygoers around her, she took a surreptitious glance down to inspect the damage.

A very large, dark, wet spot spread over her left breast. Luckily it was only ice water. Or maybe not so lucky, on second thought. She watched in horror as the red silk material clung to her skin.

“Double damn. My nipple is showing!” This time she forgot to keep her comment under her breath.

“Now that I’d like to see.” The man appeared from nowhere, towering beside her. He wat…

Guest Blog & Giveaway: Jordan K Rose

Hosted by Bewitching Book Tours, today Author Jordan K Rose will guest blog. Please give her a very warm welcome. Jordan...take it away.

Hi Sharonda. Thanks so much for letting me stop by  Salacious Reads as part of my Perpetual Light blog tour. I’m looking forward to spending some time with you and your readers.
I thought I’d pose the questions that Lucia and Vittorio have to answer in Perpetual Light.
What does a girl do when the proverbial “man of her dreams” walks out of her dreams and into her life? How does she respond when he explains her dreams are actual memories of a life long ago? And what in the world does she do with him when he turns out to be a vampire?
Lucia DiComano’s initial response to these questions is to run. Get the hell out of there and don’t look back. The only problem with that plan is there’s no running from fate.
Or from the vampire who loves her.
Lucia has been reincarnated several times in search of Vittorio, her dream husband. Only she has no idea about th…

While riding in the countryside, the couple finds themselves caught in a time warp and transported back to the 14th Century, and an England preparing for war.

After finding out she’s the best fr…

Reveiw: The Sounding by Carrie Salo

Published September 23rd 2011
Format: eBook (Review)
Available at: Amazon PrintKindle and Barnes & Noble

Book Blub:

In the Book of Revelation, a man named John has a prophetic dream. He dreams of the final prophecies that will come to pass – and the seven archangels that guard them. Each angel waits to sound their trumpet at God’s appointed time, preparing humanity to fight and win the final battle.

2,000 years later, Father Chris Mognahan is a member of the Hetairia Melchizedek, a secret society within the Catholic Church that studies Biblical omens. The society asks Chris to investigate an unusually grotesque crime – a murder on a college campus where the killer's hand literally burned off the victim's face.

While the killing seems isolated at first, the society ties the murder to the final Biblical prophecy and a terrifying omen that the order of the prophecies is about to be disrupted. The final battle is coming too soon – long before humanity is prepared to win it.


Author Interview & Giveaway: Anya Winter (The Mask)

Hosted by Bewitching Book Tours, today I will be talking to Anya Winter about her book The Mask, part of The Masquerade Series.

Welcome Anya and thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me.

1. Can you give a little background on the Masquerade series?

The Masquerade Series is all about hiding behind the masks we wear and getting to a point where we realize their not needed. It’s about being honest with yourself about yourself. I love this series.

2. Please tell us a little bit about the story of The Mask and its characters.

Eve Manor is a pastry chef with a passion she’s buried in her desserts. Christian Grier is a man who’s determined to unbury her passion. It’s full of romance, delectable desserts and secrets.

3. Who became your favorite character in The Mask?

I took a little shine to Harold in this story. He’s a deep man that makes me smile. Josh is another favorite - but he is introduced in the first book and will soon have his own story.

4. Did you always want to be a write…
