Book Extract: The Perfect Dom

“Spank me. Is that an invitation?” Shit. Mia had completely forgotten about him. Her flatmate, Katy, had asked if it was okay if her brother could stay on their sofa for a couple of nights. His own place was being fitted with a new bathroom and conditions over there weren’t exactly tantamount to hygiene. Mia had

Book Extract: Addicted

His apartment isn’t really an apartment at all. It’s more like a converted floor of a warehouse that didn’t actually get converted. The floors are that grey, untreated wood that you often see in seventeenth-century sweatshops, and he hasn’t bothered to make things like ‘rooms’. There’s a badly hung curtain between his bedroom and his

Book Extract: Kinky Boots

Jill returned to her flat feeling pretty chuffed with the events of the evening. Nice place, Kinky Boots. Really nice. And the bloke who ran it – hotter than hot. There was something else about him, something strangely familiar, almost like if they sat down together over a cuppa they’d discover that they’d always known

Book Extract: The Military Wife

Tess grumbled to herself as she heaved the shopping bags out of the boot of her car. It was a pain in the arse having to do this all by herself. Yet she’d been through this more than once, and it was going to be for the foreseeable future. May as well just get on

Books: The Sweetest Revenge (Pride)

As soon as she heard the roar of the engine, Abigail’s heart rate increased. She could recognise it at quite some distance now, and as it drew closer to her office building, she could feel the vibrations beneath her feet. Grabbing a handful of documents from the pile on her desk, Abigail headed over to

Book Extract: Reindeer Games – Cupid

Cassius Cupid woke with a start, and then sat bolt upright in his bed. Shit, I’m going to be late! was his first thought. Milliseconds later his brain switched on, and he remembered. He was on holiday. Flopping back onto the warm mattress and pillows with a contented sigh, he smiled. No work for fourteen

Book Extract: A Taste of London

Chapter One “Come on, mate, let’s go and grab our travel passes from the machine,” Ryan said, his familiarity with the locale apparent by the way he marched along the train platform toward the heart of St. Pancras Station. “What? Uh – okay.” Kristian re-arranged his bag on his shoulder and scurried to keep up

Book Extract: No Boys Allowed

Leigh checked her reflection in the glass of the street door before pressing the button corresponding to the relevant flat. Her hair and makeup had survived the stuffy and crowded Tube journey, thankfully. She was eager to make a good impression on her potential flatmates—this was an exclusive area, and rooms didn’t come up too

Book Extract: Safe from the Dark

“Shut up and strip.” THE DEMAND SENT A wave of heat through Evie’s veins, but she ignored Colin, reaching for his belt, surprised to find her hands were shaking as she tried to work the buckle. She couldn’t believe she’d ripped his shirt. His chest was as gorgeous as she remembered, miles of hard muscle,

Book Extract: Seduce Me Tonight

‘Show me how much you want me.’ I tugged at my jeans, but they were so tight they clung to my damp skin. I lost my balance and tumbled sideways on the bed before I got them down around my knees. I plunged my hand between my thighs, dipping my fingers into my wetness. I

Book Extract: Instructed to Play

Holding Still by Rose de Fer ‘You will have to earn your submissive pose again,’ he says. Then he paces away across the room and when he returns he is holding a riding crop. If my eyes widen slightly he doesn’t notice, as he is inspecting the looped leather tongue at the end of the

Book Extract: His House of Submission

‘I’m just not a very nice person. Perhaps I’m even a bad person. But I’m a good master. And I can show you things. I want to show you so many things, Sarah. If you’ll let me.’ Every ounce of common sense screamed at me to run. But I was trapped, enticed by the beguiling

Book Extract: Cougar

Pawn Shop by Lily Harlem  I glanced up from my crossword puzzle as the bell above the shop door tinkled. A man, broad shoulders, bright white smile and wearing black wraparound shades, strode into the warren of dusty shelves and cabinets. He moved with purpose, the material of his jeans hugging the tops of his

Book Extract: Dreaming of Her by Maggie Morton

Isa was walking down a dimly lit hotel hallway. Every foot or so a seashell-shaped wall sconce glowed with a gentle, golden light. A door to her left caught her eye—room sixty-nine. Did Lilith await her beyond the door? There was, of course, only one way to find out. Inside the room, candles burned on

Book Extract: Raising the Bar

The first restaurant I walk into has an opening. I can hardly believe my luck when they offer me the job on the spot. Even more so when I’m introduced to my colleagues. I’ve had so many different jobs so far on my gap year that I don’t get first day jitters any more. But

Book Extract: Thrones of Desire

‘Flesh and Stone’ by Sacchi Green, Thrones of Desire, edited by Mitzi Szereto (Cleis, 2012) A scarlet-crested helmet shadowed the face above me. I cast my eyes downward, willing my body to the stillness of any inanimate work of art. “What price for this one?” The voice was low, husky—and female. Hope rippled across my skin.

Book Extract: Anything For You

‘Exposure’ by Elizabeth Coldwell, Anything for You, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel (Cleis, 2012) The room is comfortably warm, with nibbles and dips arranged in bowls on the table. A jug of mojitos, heavy with rum and mint, waits to be served. Jason’s tread is light as he descends the stairs barefoot. The stage is set.

Book Extract: An Executive Decision

‘I can’t believe you just did that.’ Dee whispered, applying plenty of tongue to seashell hollow of his ear and inhaling sharply as he ground himself against her, forcing her back still further into the corner. ‘If the damned elevator doesn’t hurry up, I’m gonna do a whole lot more than that.’ He took time

Book Extract: Riding the Ether

‘Cassandra Larkin, I shall ravage you here and now if you do not come with me, do not think that I won’t.’ Anderson shoved his way into the library. ‘I am at least as much a lover of books as you are, but I assure you, my dear woman, now is not the time for

Book Extract: Chalan’s Story

Amalee whimpered but my grip didn’t lessen. My heart wavered for a split second, dreading the possibility of her leaving me, but I forced my hand to stay put. She’d never learn if we didn’t have this out for once and all. “I was.. thinking of the.. song. The one you mentioned.. yesterday. Samson’s Prelude,

Book Extract: Taste

“I’m gonna be late,” Allie murmured under her breath as she slipped on her shoes.  Before she could turn, two strong arms were around her waist. “And where do you think you’re going?” She shivered in Kyle’s warm embrace.  “Work.” “Take the day off.” Closing her eyes for a moment, she wished it was as

Book Extract: Trouble in Thigh High Boots

Her stiletto heels clicked on the hardwood floor, attracting the king’s attention. When he turned toward her, her heart nearly stopped at the unabashed thrilled look on his face when he set eyes on her. She sniffed the air and smelled castile soap and fragrant oil of rosemary. If I didn’t know better, I’d think

Book Extract: Climbing Her Tower

Stars shined in the sky when she heard, “Let down your hair!” Why would Mother come to visit her late at night? She visited only during the day. Always a good girl who did what she was told, she coiled her hair around the hook and struggled once again with the braid, feeling the weight

Book Extract: Hot Spot

“What, did you miss me?” “Like a dog misses fleas.”  God, I don’t even know what I’m saying.  Why am I so nervous?  She knew why. It was apparent the years separating them hadn’t done anything to erase her attraction to him, to his bad-boy image and the raw power of sexuality he exuded. The
