Featured Book: Battle-Born, by Lynda Bailey

For Throwback Thursday, guest Lynda Bailey has joined us with a taste of her first indie-pubbed book – you will love this!


Spirited repo owner Rory Dawson agrees to be what she isn’t in order to save her father from a prison sentence. Now Pop is safe, but is her heart?

Handsome banker Kane Williams has made a deal with a most provocative devil in hopes of securing a coveted promotion. All his life Kane has endeavored to be the best, to erase the failure of his father. Will years of work be forfeited for a woman, albeit the sexiest one he’s ever known?

From opposite sides of the tracks, Rory and Kane forge an unlikely friendship. Soon, that friendship becomes a steamy relationship. Through trial and pain, they battle to have the love of a lifetime.


Her eyes slammed shut and she banged her head against the wall. “Damn it.” She looked at him, her expression guilty instead of angry. “I was so nervous about tonight and meeting your friends, I didn’t pay attention to anything you said.” Her wide eyes knocked down most of his ire. She bit the corner of her lip. “Sorry.”

Kane straightened, his gaze fastened to her mouth as her teeth released the fleshy lower lip. He suppressed his growl on a cough. “It doesn’t matter. We should leave. It was wrong to put you in this situation tonight after everything you’ve gone through in the past twenty-four hours.” From the corner of his eye, he saw two assistant managers from the downtown office pass by, staring. He edged Rory closer to the wall to shield her. “We’ll say you’re not feeling well and go.”

She placed a hand on his arm. “How will that work? Both Morgan and Bridget know I’m feeling just fine.”

Damn it. She was right. He massaged the tight muscles in his neck, trying to figure a way out of the evening.

Her hand squeezed. “We’ll stay. I promise to stay by your side and be the best fake girlfriend ever. No one will suspect anything. In fact…” Her gaze slid over to the managers who were still ogling them. “I think it’s show time.”

Before he could react, Rory wrapped both hands around his neck and pulled him to her waiting lips. Her tongue made an immediate foray into his mouth and his world zeroed down to nothing. No restaurant. No bank people. Nothing.

Just Rory.

He tilted her head up with his knuckle while his thumb stroked her cheek, his tongue sparring with hers. He needed his other hand propped on the wall for support.

To a casual observer, the kiss probably didn’t seem all that intense. What a lie.

Small sounds, only he could hear, emanated from deep in her throat as her body quivered close to his. He thought again about leaving, now for a very different reason.

She broke the kiss and her eyes, bright and iridescent skewed him. “We should get back to your friends.”

In reluctant moves, he shifted back to give her room to move. Her hand squeezed his arm. “If you want to continue this later, you’ll know where I’ll be. In your bedroom.”

His thoughts on that, he followed behind her to the group.


“Whew, what a read! The chemistry between Rory and Kane jumps off the pages, but it should come to no surprise that nothing about their relationship is easy. Even up until the very end I wondered what their resolution would consist of, something I highly enjoyed.” Samantha J.

“There was everything I look for in a book, it made me laugh, at times shed a tear or two, and had the right amount of drama and angst. There were twists and turns in the story that kept you wondering where Rory and Kane would end up. The ending was simply beautiful and was a wonderful way of wrapping up their story. It will make you smile and possibly even shed a tear. A job well done by Ms. Bailey!” Jennifer S.

OUT NOW – A Different Kind of Cosplay by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #erotica #romance #geek

Today we’re excited to host erotica author Lucy Felthouse with her latest release, A Different Kind of Cosplay


Zachary has a dilemma. His girlfriend, Reese, has a special birthday coming up soon and he has absolutely no clue what to get for her. It doesn’t help that Zach does not share or really understand Reese’s biggest hobby—comic books, superheroes and everything that goes with them. Zach raids Reese’s DVD collection for inspiration, and what he finds there gives him an idea…possibly the best one he’s ever had.

Sure, Reese has fantasized about her favorite superheroes. All those muscles and rakish smiles are to die for. She didn’t think Zach would ever really understand, though. But he proves her wrong in the best way possible.

Buy links:










Zachary sighed at the calendar entry in his phone, which was reminding him for the third time about Reese’s upcoming birthday. And it wasn’t just any birthday—she was going to be thirty.

There were perks to dating a doctor—the uniform was pretty hot, for example—but when that doctor had no particular fondness for jewelry, flowers or chocolates, buying her presents was nigh-on impossible. And because of her work schedule, a surprise weekend away was out of the question. He’d long since learned to always keep the receipts.

Most people get their partners something to do with their hobbies or interests. However, Reese was even awkward in that regard. Her main hobby was so complex that Zach didn’t have the first idea what to get her to do with it—Reese was an uber-geek. Films, graphic novels, collectibles, all that jazz.

Obviously he could just ask what she wanted, then go out and get it, but then it wouldn’t be a surprise. And it was too easy—he wanted her to know he’d really made the effort.

Snoozing the calendar reminder once more, Zach threw the phone onto the sofa, then walked over and started rooting through their combined film collection for something to watch after dinner, which was almost ready. Reese was on-shift at the hospital until silly o’clock, so he had the house to himself and could watch whatever he liked. An action movie it was, then.

Running his fingers along the spines of the DVDs and Blu-rays, he suddenly paused. The Avengers leaped out at him, for some reason. He’d seen snippets of it before, as Reese watched it pretty frequently. The parts he’d seen hadn’t looked too bad, actually. It was essentially an action film, he decided, but with superheroes in it.

He pulled the case off the shelf, an idea beginning to form. Maybe if he watched it beginning to end, he’d seen what drew Reese into that world so much, why she was so fascinated by the films, the graphic novels and so on. Even if he didn’t get it, though, maybe it would still give him some inspiration for a gift. He had nothing better to do that evening, in any case, so it was certainly worth a try.

After putting the disc in the player, he headed into the kitchen to see how his dinner was coming along. A meal in front of the television was the order of the day, it seemed.

A few minutes later, he settled onto the sofa with his lasagna and garlic bread, a bottle of beer on the table next to him. Time for some Avengers action.

Within half an hour, he’d ascertained that the film wasn’t just for geeks. In fact it was easy to see why it had such a wide appeal—the cast was supremely attractive, whatever gender you were into, the plot was interesting and the dialogue seriously witty. He’d already developed quite the crush on the Black Widow, and Nick Fury’s right-hand woman had a lovely pert backside.

Trying to put himself in Reese’s shoes, Zach looked at the male characters. Okay, when it came to this film, straight women clearly had more eye-candy than they knew what to do with. He vaguely remembered a bunch of crazy stuff going around on the Internet about Loki—even the villain of the piece had sex appeal, for heaven’s sake! So much so that it had spilled over into even Zach’s limited social media presence. He barely used Facebook, and he’d never gotten the hang of Twitter. And yet he knew about the rabid fangirls. That was another score for The Avengers, then—truly mass-market appeal. If only there were mass-market gift-buying options.

Sighing, he tried to empty his mind and concentrate on the film. The more he tried to force an idea to present itself, the less likely it would be to happen. He’d just enjoy the entertainment and keep his fingers crossed that his subconscious provided something useful.

Once he’d made the decision, it wasn’t difficult to get sucked back into the narrative. It was engaging, easy-going and fun. Zach surprised himself by thoroughly enjoying the entire thing. Reese would be pleased when the next film came out at the cinema and he offered to go along with her.

He’d keep his new found admiration quiet for now, though. He didn’t want to arouse her suspicions, although she was bound to know he was planning something for her milestone birthday.

The question remained—what the hell could he do or buy to blow her away?
