I am on Holidays reading by the pool

Nothing is nicer than sitting back on the deck surrounded by the biggest pool I have ever seen with a cocktail in one hand and a book in another. 

This is my life for the next few days, it's a hard life but someone has to do it.  Oh yeah did I mention it's warm enough for bikini's and it's supposed to be winter.  Yay! The sun is out.

You have to love the tropics,  just like I am loving the YA book I am reading at the moment.  It's called "Demon High" written by well known Author and teacher Lori Devoti.

Lori Devoti is able to captivate you on every page as she writes in a way that the conflict keeps you guessing. Yes it's a young adult read, as any good book I find myself thinking about the characters even when I'm not reading which tells me Lori  has done a terrific job of grabbing the readers attention.

It's set around  high school kids where Lucinda the heroine needs money quick to help save her Nana's  house,  and decides to step into her missing mothers footsteps and summon demons to fix her  money problems.   But all this money may come at a cost with her life.

I need to keep reading to see if these demons change as they are helpful to Lucinda's  commands at the moment especially while she stands outside the protective circle, but will they trick her and expect something in return. Will Lucinda want more power and join the demons? Did her mother die at the hands of the demons or did she join them?  Was it forced or did her mother leave to save her own daughters life.  I  have so many questions I need answered so I must go and find out more. 

Knowing that on this night while I gaze out over the pool and up to the stars thinking about Demon High I will be  satisfied that all my questions will be answered.  And that Lori Devoti has written another brilliant book. Thank-you Lori for bringing Demon High into my life.

If you aren't into young adults and want something a bit more steamy if you know what I mean,  then find your way towards Lori Devoti's M& B romance books found throughout the world.  Then you will definitely find hot nocturnal men of a different kind.

Wow, I'm sweating just thinking about them, ok time for another dip in the pool. Can't be thinking about big strong arm muscles and abs of steel that aren't my husbands. Or can I?  Hehe,  have fun reading.

Fall into Winter by Eden Baylee

"Fall of Winter" written by Eden Baylee is  a collection of four Erotic Novellas in which I was sent from Eden herself. 

It was a great surprise to have an erotic book turn up on my doorstep so to speak.  As I have never reviewed an erotica before and it quickened my heart a bit,  so please be aware that if you are offended by the thought of reading how exactly one is fulfilled in the bedroom in detail, this may not be for you.  But for those who are curious keep reading.

The four novellas start with Ella being, "seduced by the blues." Ella was definitely seduced by John the owner of a blues bar and a very creative guitarist.  I don't think I will look at a guitarist agile fingers again in the same way. Wow. 

The second novella is called "Act Three" which involves Stella and her extra diverse needs. Her husband was unfulfilling them so after divorcing, Stella met Norman who was more than just a sexually curious man he was a role player.  Taking charge of his new Queen,  King Norman punishes her in ways she has never experienced before.  So if you are looking spanking, whips, bondage play, sex swings, paddles, splashes and more "Act Three" Novella is for you.

Then we come to Novella three "The Norwegian" which tugged at my heart the most as its more an erotic romance which I loved, as it has a beautiful story of Leah who is on retreat to Cedar Valley during the winter to get away from everything including her publisher.  Allowing her to focus on writing and finish her book with no interruptions, until she meets a Norwegian Biathlon who meets every girls dreams visually as well as physically, helping her find herself again after losing her fiance who died four years earlier. I loved it Eden.

The fourth Novella in which I consider as another Erotic Romance involving Elena who is on holidays in Phuket when she meets three male friends and spend the holidays with them.  Nothing happens during that time but Simon and Stefan seem to take a liking to her but their English was poor as they were Austrian.  After vowing to keep in touch two years past and Elena finds herself in Austria and one thing leads to another and Elena finds herself swathed in a bedsheet opening the door to a sexy as Hell Astrian.  Dropping the bedsheet to the floor standing naked before him letting him devour her with his eyes before he devours her in other ways.  A happy ending all around. 

All four novella's are totally different in characters and situations and I found the fall novella's are true Erotics and the winter novella's are Erotic Romances which I truly love.  All stories are written by the first person giving you the explicit  thoughts of the main character. 

So if you are looking for a free-flowing book which is a quick and easy read "Fall into Winter" is for you.  But be prepared to yearn for more desire in your own life after reading it.

This is Eden's first book and no doubt we will be seeing more of Eden Baylee's Erotic writing in years to come. No punt intended.  ;-)

I have just read the ARC of Autumn Duchess

For those who love a good Georgian Historical Romance Lucinda Brant is for you.  She is an Australian Author and she knows her history especially since she is a History Teacher.

I had the great pleasure of reading and proofing Autumn Duchess for Lucinda, which was a great honor I must say.

"Wow, are you sure?"  Was my answer to her asking me, considering I am just an avid fan, reader, reviewer, mum and I have no Editing background all.  However, I was so, so glad she let me read it. 

If you have read Noble Satyr (book 1)  then Midnight Marriage (book 2) you must be hanging waiting and wanting to read Autumn Duchess (book 3).  I am NOT going to give out secrets since I have sworn to confidentiality, but if you want to check out the first chapter of her book go to the Lucinda Brant Website and click on Autumn Duchess and it will give you a sneak peak of what is to come. 

The Autumn Duchess manuscript is going to the publisher this week so it won't be long before it will be available to purchase.  While you are waiting  why don't you read her ebook Noble Satyr as it is only 99cents.  The hardcover should be in the next week or two so yay!  If you have her books  already,  re-read them again so the characters will be fresh in your mind.

Find out about  Duchess Antonia by reading the Roxton Series from the beginning.  Lucinda writes in a way that will allow you to see everything unfold from the page to seeing it happen infront of your eyes as if you are watching a movie.  Lucinda pulls all the right strings of your heart emotionally and physically. 

Thank you Lucinda Brant for letting me read the Advanced readers copy.  I give it 5 stars for sure. It is another one of your books that I can't wait to have in a hardcover. I loved it.
