Alpha vs. Alpha

Posted in erotic romance novels, New Release with tags , , , , , on October 12, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

I love the title of this new release. Alpha vs. Alpha, Francesca Hawley’s new shapeshifter erotic romance, is out today at Ellora’s Cave. I love Francesca’s stuff. I remember years ago when I was privileged to help critique one of her novels.

Here’s the blurb:

Alpha female Serena Goldwolf has spent a lifetime vowing never to be a submissive mate to any Alpha male. But all it takes is one surprisingly sexual meeting with Damien Blackwolf, a dissatisfied client of her shapeshifter dating site Predator-Match.com, and she’s down on all fours, wanting to be mounted by the hottest male on two legs—or four—whom she’s ever met.

 Damien Blackwolf doesn’t understand why the voluptuous Serena won’t admit they’re True Mates. To convince her, he decides to bring out her baser desires by dragging her off to someplace private to get to know her…intimately. But how can he convince her of their destiny when she runs away from him? Guess he’ll just have to hunt her down and persuade her.

 In a passionate battle of wills, there most definitelycan be two winners.

I urge you to go over and take a look.

Sizzling Menage You Can’t Miss!!!!

Posted in erotic romance novels, New Release with tags , , , on July 9, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

This is the moment when you click directly over to Ellora’s Cave and check out the brand new release by Samantha Wayland, one of the best menage writers I know. Destiny Calls has released, and this book is even hotter than the last one Samantha put out, With Grace.

Here’s the blurb for Destiny Calls:

Patrick didn’t think it would be a big deal to kiss his best friend Brandon. Hell, they’d done crazier things to avoid a bar fight. He was totally unprepared to be wildly turned on, the kiss opening up new avenues of pleasure he’d never dreamt of—Patrick, after all, was straight, even if Brandon wasn’t.

Destiny’s never been afraid to ask for what she wants. When she sees Patrick and Brandon together, she knows exactly what she wants—the three of them in bed together, preferably with her in the middle of a hot, naked-man sandwich with her two best friends.

When Brandon finds himself hunted by an unknown enemy, the three friends find themselves fighting for their lives—and their hearts.

I was privileged enough to be able to critique this book as it was written and so I am particularly psyched to see it out on the virtual shelves. You know it’s good when I love it and there isn’t even any BDSM in the story. (grin)

Run, don’t walk, to buy this story.

Celebrate Desiree’s 100th Release!

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, erotic romance novels, New Release with tags , , , , , , , on April 15, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

 This month Desiree Holt celebrates her 100th release with Downstroke from Ellora’s Cave. Downstroke is the story of lovers, reunited after twenty years, trying to bridge a gulf of bitterness while outwitting a killer.

It’s been twenty years since Charley Roper and Dallas Creed parted with great bitterness. In that time she’s made a career for herself with the FBI and private security and he’s been a country rock music icon…tumbled to the bottom and risen again. Now someone’s trying to kill him and Morgan Creed wants Charley to protect his brother and find out who’s after him. When they meet again after all this time it’s obvious the chemistry is still there, stronger than ever. They’re older but are they wiser? Caught up in the bitter wash of memories and the tension of a killer in stalking mode, Charley and Dallas begin a roller coaster ride that is emotional, erotic and suspenseful.  Is their love strong enough after twenty years to pull them back together? 

As part of the celebration, Desiree is giving away a prize every day of the reader’s choice from her backlist. Names will be drawn from those who post comments and a grand prize of a refurbished Netbook with digital DVD drive will be awarded to one lucky winner. After you (the reader) post, go to Desiree’s web site at www.desireeholt.com  and enter to win the grand prize.

And to help her celebrate I’m giving you a taste of one of her other books. Below find an excerpt from one of her recent books, Delight Me, part of the 1-800-DOM-help series in which I’m also a part.

Delight Me excerpt:

The room was redolent with the scent of the cinnamon candles. Dani Maguire ducked her head, trying to find a breath of clean air. Alan loved the scent of cinnamon. Even insisted she drop cinnamon-scented crystals in the water when she bathed. But she’d reached a point where the aroma of cinnamon nearly made her gag.

Or maybe it was Alan Powell who made her gag. Two years in this relationship and try as she might, lately she couldn’t seem to find the key to make it work. He was a loving Dom, demanding but considerate, yet something deep inside her kept rebelling.

Still kneeling on the floor, hands manacled behind her, lips aching from stretching around the girth of Alan’s cock, she wondered where they could go from here. She didn’t love him. The sex was still great but she no longer found it…fulfilling. And that presented a problem.

Alan bent to unlock the handcuffs and used his hands beneath her elbows to help her rise. His tall, lean body dwarfed her small one, surrounding her with his masculinity, a sensation she usually enjoyed. But lately everything seemed to be just a little off.

“I worked you hard tonight,” he murmured, long fingers brushing her hair back from her face. “I’m going to draw a hot bath for you, with those salts that you like, and bathe you just the way you always enjoy it.”

But did she enjoy it? Did it please her? Or had it become an irritant? What she really wanted was to bathe him.

Get over it, Dani. You’re just going through a phase.

But was she?

She stayed in the same position until Alan lifted her and carried her to the bathroom, lowering her gently into the fragrant bath. The heated water stung the skin of her ass where Alan had disciplined her earlier. She’d been less than enthusiastic about using her mouth on him, and although she’d done her best to hide it, he’d been all too aware of it. Bending her over the bed, he’d used the thin quirt on her, striping her buttocks with ten well-placed strikes.

When he finished, he’d lowered her to the floor, held her mouth open with his fingers and worked his cock back and forth across her tongue. Somehow she’d dredged up a semblance of desire and given him the release he needed. She knew he wasn’t happy but when he finished he hadn’t said a word. Simply bent down to kiss her and went to draw the bath.

“Just relax,” Alan murmured, squeezing the bath sponge. “You know I’ll take care of you. Don’t I always?”

Yes, he did. But somehow over the past few months she found herself enjoying it less and less.

“Dani?” His voice sharpened. “I asked you a question.”

She blinked her eyes. “Yes, Master. You do.”

That wasn’t the question she needed to answer though. She needed to understand why that care had suddenly become so suffocating. Why she had begun to resent it in little ways.

One of his large hands cupped the back of her head, bracing her body as he skimmed the sponge over her breasts. She closed her eyes and tried to relax at the light-as-a-feather touch. A pinch on one nipple startled her and her eyes flew open. Alan’s eyes were staring directly into hers, a strange look playing over his face.

“Tell me to pinch your nipples again,” he commanded.

She swallowed. “Pinch my nipples again, Master. Please.”

He took each one in turn between thumb and forefinger and squeezed them hard enough that lust shot straight to her core, making the inner muscles of her cunt flutter.

“Well, that hasn’t changed.” His voice had an oddly hard edge to it.

Desiree is one of many talented ladies in this author collaboration including: Samantha Cayto, Christine d’Abo, Delilah Devlin, Gail DeYoung, Delpine Dryden, Francesca Hawley, Shayla Kersten, Kathy Kulig, Marianne LaCroix, Marilu Mann, Emma Petersen, Allie Standifer, and Ari Thatcher. Check out the 1-800-DOM-help blog to catch up on the latest in this series.

Post a comment here, check out the rest of Desiree’s books, numbers one through ninety-nine, at www.desireeholt.com, and enter to win her contest while visiting her website. I am so proud of Desiree for reaching 100. May I be so lucky someday.

Mistress Mine – The Next 1-800 Release!

Posted in 1-800-DOM-help, kink with tags , , , , on February 16, 2011 by Michelle Polaris

Let’s give it up for Samantha Cayto, the next author in the 1-800-DOM-help collaboration to release a book. Mistress Mine is for sale today at Ellora’s Cave, and I want everyone to click over and take a look. Isn’t the cover fantastic? This story has the fun distinction of being both a Cougar and a FemDom tale. If you haven’t checked out this new series, you are missing out. This is the sixth book, all of them stand-alone, that features a mysteriously appearing business card imprinted with the 1-800-DOM-help hotline number, offering help for women and men in the BDSM community facing their own unique problems.

Here’s the blurb:

FBI agent and ex-military man Trey Boudreau likes to be in control and issue orders. But the bedroom is not a battlefield. His secret desire is to submit his body to a strong, older woman. He discovers a card that promises him the right one to bring him to his knees.

Juliette Coyne is a Domme determined to overcome a past experience that left her questioning her ability in the lifestyle. She is challenged by Trey, a strong, younger man in need of a good lesson or two. Old habits die hard, however, and the past continues to haunt them. Trey and Juliette grapple with each other and themselves for control, trust and a future together.

Enjoy!

Commanding Acquisitions

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 16, 2010 by Michelle Polaris

Read this book! No kidding, if you like male/male BDSM romance then you will definitely enjoy Commanding Acquistions by Christine d’Abo. And I’m not just saying this because she is a part of the Ellora’s Cave 1-800-DOM-help series along with me. My novella for this series is done, by the way, and is due to be sent to my editor once I integrate some of the feedback of my lovely critique partners.

But, back to the point. I’ve included the blurb below, but this novella does its job perfectly. It gives us two characters, intelligent, intriguing, sexy and enjoyable, places them at an important pivot point of their lives, drives the sexual heat high between them, and makes them face important decisions about taking the risk of relationship and coping with the fears that get in their way. Plus, the BDSM action is hot. I know I’ve enjoyed a story when I want to know more about the characters and wish they could come over for a dinner party. I felt this way about Simon and Gavin. So head on over to Ellora’s Cave and purchase yourself a copy. Definitely a two thumbs up.

Book blurb:

Simon is a Dom who has become jaded, tired of the local scene. With his bookstore failing and personal life nonexistent, he’s looking for something different. The arrival of the mysterious 1-800-DOM-help business card gives Simon a chance for a change. The Operator directs him to Unfettered, a hot new BDSM club where Simon hopes to find a distraction for the evening. What he gets is a sexy sub offering himself up for a night of no-holds-barred sex, who then disappears with the dawn.

When the business consultant Simon hires turns out to be his mysterious sub, he knows he’s found a chance at happiness. But happiness comes at a price.

With Grace!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on June 5, 2010 by Michelle Polaris

It’s here! Samantha Wayland, with whom I have the honor of being a critique partner, has released her first story with Ellora’s Cave today — With Grace. This story is a delicious treat. Samantha is a genius at drawing believable and caring characters whose deep friendships develop into passionate love affairs and lifelong commitments. Below is the blurb and buy link. I highly suggest you hop on over to Ellora’s Cave and pick this one up. It’s a yummy journey.

Blurb:

A man yearning to explore his sexual tastes but afraid to turn up the heat, the woman who loves him but is hungry for more spice… and the chef who craves them both.

When Grace, Philip and Mark find a mobster’s flash drive full of incriminating information, they are quickly embroiled in a dangerous situation. They stay together for safety, but proximity ignites the sparks they’ve long been fighting to ignore.

When three friends dare to succumb to their appetites, they find the perfect recipe for love.
