Review: NOR: Best Lesbian Erotica 2011 by Kathleen Warnock

What are lesbians longing for? Playwright, event host, and editor Kathleen Warnock helps answer this question in her newest edition of this much-loved, best-selling series. Featuring work from some of the best-known erotic writers as well as the debuts of startling new talent, Best Lesbian Erotica 2011 welcomes back some familiar faces, including Stella Sandberg. Her story, "Manchester, 2000," follows the European adventures of two studs on a long ride. Perennial favorite Betty Blue returns with "The Garden of Earthly Delights," an encounter between a firespirit and a lost boi on the celestial plane. Cheyenne Blue’s "A Story About Sarah" travels to the antipodes, telling the story of a life-long love between a rancher’s daughter and a half-Aboriginal woman. There’s more . . . right under the covers of Best Lesbian Erotica 2011.

*I did receive this book from Night Owl Romance for the purpose of my honest review.*

*So, all thoughts and comments regarding this book are solely mine!*

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review....

I will start this out with this is a collection of short stories about some female love. If this genre is not for you, you will not hurt my feelings if you go no farther. I understand... With that being said... Let's continue please...

This book kinda disappointed me a bit. I am a huge f/f fan and I love most stories out there. But this completion just kinda left me a little deflated. I know it takes all kind of f/f's to make the world go round. And I guess it is more personal preference than anything. And with that being said, I do not want to take away from the book itself. But I was a little put off by some of the stories. Are they well written, yes they are. The just did not interest me in the way I thought.

All stories are separate and no way related to each other. Which is what you would expect. But some left me thinking "WTH" and some I just could not digest what was being said. I know this review is not like me and for that I apologize. Just this book was not meant for me, I think. I hope that if f/f is your main genre, you will give it a try and read it and enjoy it.

The authors in the book are great, but this series just was not for me. And I will not end on a bad note because this is the work of some dedicated authors... I think you all did a great job!

And remember... Keep it Dirty, Smutty & Hussy!

Review: Wilder's Mate by Moria Rogers

Wilder's Mate

Wilder Harding is a bloodhound, created by the Guild to hunt down and kill vampires on America's frontier. His enhanced abilities come with a high price: on the full moon, he becomes capable of savagery beyond telling, while the new moon brings a sexual hunger that borders on madness. Rescuing a weapons inventor from undead kidnappers is just another assignment, though one with an added complication--keeping his hands off the man's pretty young apprentice, who insists on tagging along. At odds with polite society, Satira's only constant has been the aging weapons inventor who treats her like a daughter. She isn't going to trust Wilder with Nathaniel's life, not when the Guild might decide the old man isn't worth saving. Besides, if there's one thing she's learned, it's that brains are more important than brawn. As the search stretches far longer than Wilder planned, he finds himself fighting against time. If Satira is still at his side when the new moon comes, nothing will stop him from claiming her. Worse, she seems all too willing. If their passion unlocks the beast inside, no one will be safe. Not even the man they're fighting to save.

Warning: This book contains a crude, gun-slinging, vampire-hunting hero who howls at the full moon and a smart, stubborn heroine who invents mad-scientist weapons. Also included: wild frontier adventures, brothels, danger, betrayal and a good dose of wicked loving in an alternate Wild West.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

Okay short story aside, this is one awesome story. It is literally non stop... Whether it is with action, suspense or some hot sexual tension or just some plain freaking hot sex with one hellva man. Ms moria kept me on the edge of my seat with this story. And what was a "surprise" to me was the element of steam punk-ish mixed with the paranormal world.

You can almost say this story has it all. One woman determined to save her mentor - sparing no cost. Virtually giving up her own life for his. One bloodhound determined to save them all.

Satira is an inventor's apprentice; but since she is a woman - she will not be recognized as such. I admire her courage to stand up for what she believes in or should I say the people she believes in. Her faith in people runs as deep as the blood in her veins. She is a force to be reckoned with and for that alone I enjoyed her. Not to mention she is truly a kiss ass heroine. Ms. Rogers allowed me to step into the shoes of Satira and take notice of her situation... Satira never felt sorry for herself or pity for the surroundings she was in or never played victim for her past... And that I truly found enjoyable! A woman on a mission and armed and dangerous!

Now on to Wilder... Whoa baby. What a man, what a man... Or should I say what a bloodhound! He turned all the right buttons and hit all the right spots a woman has. He really earned the title Sex on a Stick... Or in his case, I need to say Sex on a Horse... Cuz that is just how he rides! He is a man on a mission... and he is all about completing his mission... at all cost. But I am not sure he expected for his heart to get caught up in this mission. Especially by the tiny but no hold no bars Satira. Can Wilder rein in his emotions before they get the best of him... Or will he show Satira just what he is?

These two explode the scenes with the sexual tension and banter they had together. They had me giggling and stiffling laughter as I would read some of their word exchanges. Ms. Rogers played these two characters very well against (and for) each other. I was not sure at first about the steam-punkish feel to the read, but I truly enjoyed this story and cannot wait to read more about this series ((hint hint, wink wink))! Every page was an adventure to take, every other word was some sort of smart ass remark and then the pages with the hot sex... OMG... you will want to read next to a fan, I promise! Ms. Rogers truly rocked my world and made me want to go back in time to find my own bloodhound! Kicking ass never seemed so naughty!!! Awesome job Ms. Rogers!

Review: The Only Exception by Gina Gordon

The Only Exception by Gina Gordon
Publisher: Breathless Press
Length: 28,484 words
Price: $2.99
Publication Date: January 2011
Format: Ebook
Cover art: Dara England

Two co-workers, one work retreat and explosive chemistry. The Canadian winter doesn’t stand a chance.

For Caroline Carlson, business is business. She will not let her profession define her. She’ll never make that mistake again. When she finds herself forced to attend a manager’s retreat in the middle of winter with her arrogant co-workers, the line between business and pleasure is blurred. Especially, since she’s forced to spend the time with Hayden, the man who has secured the starring role in her sexy dreams.

Hayden Cross is the new manager on the block. The retreat is a chance to let loose and get away from the daily grind. Until one night when a chance encounter with Caroline at a club morphs his plan into a personal dare. He is mesmerized by the sexy woman writhing on the dance floor. She’s a fantasy come to life.

Caroline is convinced that Hayden is just another man who wants the fantasy but his sexual advances are too hard to ignore. The more time they spend together the hotter it gets and the Canadian winter doesn't stand a chance.

I obtained the above information from Gina's website.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

Ms. Gina has cranked out another hot little story. She knows all the buttons to push when writing a love story gone hot! =) She just keeps adding to MY To Keep Books... but I promise to share with you guys. This one is for all of you "cold" people... lol. I would say that this one is good to read by a fire... but hell... by the time you read it... you will be on fire!!! Then, to add to her story... she touched on a taboo issue... Work romance! Oh yea... you may not look at your co-worker you have been drooling over the same after reading this story.... Now.. let's continue...

Caroline is an all business, no mixing kinda woman. She does not believe in office romance, she does not even believe in mixing business with pleasure. Nope... not her. She worked to hard to have her career ruined by some fling with a co-worker. But when she is not working... she loves to cut loose! And I have to admire her for cutting lose... She was a tad bit to straight laced for me in the beginning - only because her co-worker is Hayden the Hottie.... I mean come'on.... Just one roll in the imaginary hay with him... But seriously, I knew where she was coming from and I respected her for that.

But on the other hand... Hayden the Hottie... Oh man.. he was a man on a mission. At least he thought he was until he lost something that he knew he could not recovered from... Losing his heart to the one woman capable of breaking it... Even though he was the one set out to breaking her... Hayden won me over and over with his actions... He was just a real stand up guy...

Now when these two get thrown together for a four night/five day retreat for work, they have no choice but to get along. Just how well do they play together depends on how the walls of their personal space falls... I will have to leave you with these thoughts ((only because the book is short and I do not want to give it all away...))... Ms. Gina wowed me with the passion and drive of Hayden. I thoroughly enjoyed how pursuant he was and Caroline gave me a good chase... but with a man as determined as Hayden... Well hell, anyone's wall would fall... or shake... or rattle... Oh yea... This is a hot little story!! Ms. Gina... job well done!!! Now when do I get more.... lol!!!!

Please visit Gina's website here!! You won't be disappointed ~ I promise... She loves her some smut too! =)

And remember... Keep it Dirty, Smutty & Hussy!

Quickie Giveaway & Gina Gordon Gets Naughty at the Lair!

The Lair would like for you to give a warm welcoming to...

Ms. Gina Gordon.....

She has seem to have snuck in the Lair undetected

and brought with her.... some hot men.......

The Temptation of the Alpha Male

We all give in to temptation. Whether it’s coming on to the handsome man from your neighborhood, eating that sinful dessert that goes straight to your thighs, or buying those knee-high leather boots you’ve been eyeing in the store window for months.

We all know Cecile can’t resist her Tribal men *wiggles eyebrows*

Admittedly, my biggest temptation is books. I know, I know, boring right. But I cannot go into a book store and NOT buy a bag full of books. It’s sort of like I’m on auto pilot. And that buy with one-click option on Amazon isn’t doing me any favors either.

But since we’re in the lair, I will stay true to my fine Hussy form and talk about the next best thing to books—the Alpha Male!

I like the take-charge confidence and masculine presence of a man that knows what he wants and how to get it. I love that tortured soul with a rough exterior that turns to total goo when he finds his soul mate. I swoon over a man that takes control but knows exactly when to step back and give the heroine room to exercise her own strength. I like knowing that a man can get so riled up with want that he teeters on the edge of losing control—but of course never does. At least not with the heroine, but that doesn’t stop him from ripping off the head of the bad guy.

I recently watched the movie Speed with my husband for about the gazillionth time and I had forgotten that Jack Traven is the quintessential Alpha Male. Keanu Reeves is perfect in his portrayal of a bomb squad cop, his body buff and his hair buzzed. That white t-shirt and cargo pants just add to the sexy package. Damn that Sandra Bullock was a lucky gal. But I digress.

I am usually a fan of cowboys who can very much be Alpha Males, Lorelei James writes an Alpha cowboy like no other. But the image of a uniformed/military Alpha has been weighing heavy on my mind because of these:

You can’t get any more Alpha than these covers. You can’t get any more drool worthy. Thank you Lori Foster (:

In short, there is nothing more appealing than an Alpha Male. And for all you women who squawk about the unrealistic portrayal of men in romance novels and how they are always sexy and hot and extremely built—well….you can stick it! I love the fantasy of the romance hero. I love the hope that somewhere out there is a woman who has found her real Alpha cowboy and indulges in being tied up to her headboard night, after night, after night.

So what about you? Are you an Alpha or Beta?

Now for the time you all have waited for - besides seeing those hot covers.....

Giveaway time!!!

Now this is going to be tricky.... Because I asked you if you are an Alpha or Beta....
You have to answer that... Only because I am curious.. hehehe..

But the real question is....

What is your Naughty Temptation????

The winner will win an ecopy of

Out NOW Review: Temptation In Lingerie by Gina Gordon

Temptation In Lingerie

Are you willing to risk it all and give in to temptation?

Carrie Taylor can't believe her luck. Along with her own lingerie line she's now the proud owner of Satin and Lace, a specialty lingerie store. She has everything she’s ever wanted...except Aleks Turko. After a lifetime spent pining over the man she can never have, Carrie decides to take back her love life. Vowing to get him out of her system once and for all, she propositions Aleks for a one night stand.

Growing up without a mother and with an uncommunicative father, Aleks Turko sought comfort in the arms of the Taylor family. As an adult, he now has everything he needs - a second family, good friends, and a bottomless barrel of women. But over the last few months vivid, sexual thoughts about Carrie have become a regular occurrence. He's managed to keep his urges at bay, but when he walks in on her wearing one of her lacy designs, all bets are off.

When what was supposed to be a one-time affair snowballs into a battle of wills, Carrie and Aleks must decide if they should risk everything and give in to temptation.

Contains explicit language, sex and an unorthodox use of a fitting room.

I obtained the above information from Ms. Gina's website!

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

Okay... Ms Gina is on fire with another freaking hot story. I have to say that this is one hot story with a sweet touch of love in it! Ms. Gina provided me with enough sexual pull that I thought I was going to have to go in the story and kick some ass to make them realize that they were in love! I loved it! This story reminded me of couple of friends that I have... you can see how they feel about each other... but apparently they don't get it till it is almost to late. Ms. Gina.... You rock honey... Oh and I want a job at Bare Naked Designs..... Please?!?!?!!!

Now for the review you came for... I can't give to much away because this is another short one, but let me tell you there is enough kink, a lot of hottness from Alexs and Carrie's lingerie that will scorch the pages. There is enough hot dressing room sex to make you look at the dressing room a little different now... Hell,you might even want to take your better half with you next time you go to that special lady place, lol....

This couple is very dear because they have known each other forever and a day. They practically grew up together... but one problem... Carrie was always the younger sister who loved to tag along... So, being seen as the sexy, attractive woman that she is today ~ well... that proves to be her "almost" undoing...

If you want a hot little read about a woman who knows what she wants and a man who is evasive as hell about giving that said woman what she wants... Then this one is for you! Ohhh and not to mention the tender moments too... you know that ones that make you go, "Awe!"

And this one line had me laughing my ass off because it is soooo real to the real world.... Here is a little passage...

His date seemed to hold her own as Carrie eyed her angrily, but her look softened when she
looked up at Carrie’s man. Not her man. Aleks was not her man.
“I don’t think she’s being very nice.” She pouted her collagen lips, her words coming out
in baby talk.
“Are you fucking kidding me?” Carrie screamed.
Rob grabbed Carrie by the arm and yanked her back before she had the chance to lunge at
the fake blond.

I can easily seeing that being said and done and I love that again, Ms. Gina kept it real for me!!!! Now, how about that job Ms. Gina... please..... Awesome job at following up Forever in Lingerie and cannot wait for Bound in Lingerie!!!! You rock honey!

Make sure to go to her website to pick this hot book up today... IT IS OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!!

Please make sure you visit Ms. Gina's website here....!!!!

And remember... Keep it Dirty, Smutty & Hussy!

Review: Sweet Submission by Eliza Gayle

Sweet Submission
Genre: Contemporary BDSM
Themes: Bondage, Dominance, Submission, Multiple Partners
Format: eBook Length: Novella

Who knew a rose could hurt so good?

Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year for Harper Allison and her cupcake bakery. She’s not personally interested in the trumped up holiday until she receives an anonymous gift with explicit instructions that include a rendezvous at the most upscale BDSM club in the city.

From the moment Alex lays eyes on Harper at the Glass Kat Club he wants her. And what Alex wants Alex gets. He formulates a plan with his best friend, one guaranteed to fulfill Harper’s unspoken desires and hidden fantasies.

Unfortunately for Alex, one night is all Harper is prepared to give. Her life is complicated enough without having two Doms pushing her to submit, no matter how incredibly sexy they are. Until the familiar voice of a stranger reminds her…Maybe she doesn’t know Alex at all.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

Let me start off by saying that Ms Eliza had me burning up the ipad in this hot, sweet, sexy and deliciously wicked story. She takes us on a wicked ride of finding lust in all the right places. She explores our secret desires, fulfilles them and makes us take the hope of a life that we keep on a shelf for later in life because we just never think it is out turn in life - dust it off and make it into a reality.

Harper is a year out of a vanilla divorce and knows where her heart lies. On the wicked side of naughty. But finding that one person to allow domination over her is something she is not quite ready for yet.... That is until she has to serve her treats at a club that specializes in her flavor of naughtiness.

Alex sees what he wants and he knows how to get it. This man had me reaming of finding my own Dom to collar me. He was tender enough to be the lover we all have those dreams about but a Dom enough to make you go weak in the knees by the tone of his voice. His addiction to the sweet Harper might prove to be his undoing....

Now let me warn you that this story is about being dominated. If you know you are uncomfortable with that type of story, this one might not be for you. But it is not on the serious side of BDSM that I think would leave you feeling uncomfortable reading it, actually I think quite the opposite would happen. You might like the taste.... Kinda like a cupcake with sex!!

Ms. Eliza treats us to a short story that for sure will make you want to take a trip to your local bakery and.... Bring your man some dessert back!

If you are looking for a quick, hot read, I encourage you to pick up this one. You won't be disappointed. Especially if you like a little BDSM mixed in with your sweet tooth!! I have to say that Ms Eliza knows how to have dessert first!!! A woman after my own heart!
