Reflected in You by Sylvia Day
The hotly anticipated second book of the Crossfire Trilogy continues the sensual saga of Eva and Gideon that began in Bared to You…the New York Times bestselling novel of “Erotic romace that should not be missed” (Romance Novel News).
Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction... my every desire... mine.
My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.
Angels, Demons and Doms by Caroline McCall & Eileen Gormley
When a D/s virgin with an angel tattoo decides to gatecrash a BDSM party, she gets more than she bargained for. Lexi meets four masked Doms with devilish tattoos who give her pleasure beyond her wildest dreams. But when the scene is interrupted, she flees the club.
“Master Demon” Sam refuses to give up on his angel. He puts away his mask and decides to prove that he can be the perfect vanilla boyfriend. But how long can Sam hide his true nature? Will vanilla be enough for Lexi, now that she’s explored her deepest desires? And when Lexi finds out she’s been deceived, there’s going to be hell to pay!
Reader Advisory: Lexi’s erotic adventures include spanking, m/m/m/f play, voyeurism, smoking-hot phone sex and the creative use of nipple clamps.

The Principal's Office by Jasmine Haynes
Rachel Delaney, divorced mother with two boys, isn't complaining. Her life is fine. Really. There is one thing that could make it better, though: a strong, warm, male body to help her make it through the occasional lonely night. No strings, and no relationship, thanks. Just a little fun with a perfect stranger. And there's no more perfect a stranger than Rand.
He's tall, blond, unattached, smokin' hot, and looking for the same thing Rachel is: wild, abandoned sex with no limits, no last names, and no complications-until Rachel's eldest son gets in trouble in class.
Only then does Rachel discover that her down-and-dirty, dangerously sexy mystery lover is also the new school principal. They're not exactly the ideal role models for a troubled student acting out his own frustrations. With Rachel's life turned upside down, Rand's the only one who can make it right-by maybe taking their hot-bodied hook-ups into a warm-hearted new direction.

Holden Sumner is a three-hundred-year-old vampire on a mission—he’s been stalking a serial-killing demon for centuries and he needs Kaitlyn’s help to kill it. The problem is, she won’t give him the time of night. But Sumner is determined to get under her skin. Though Kaitlyn is reluctant to get involved with a vampire, she agrees to help Sumner search for the killer. But in order to drive the demon back to hell and stop the slaughter of innocents, she will have to bind herself more tightly than she ever thought possible to a man she doesn’t want to love. She and Sumner must form a blood covenant…or die trying.

Now, to find and retrieve the moonfire dagger, he'll need to convince Phina not to judge a man by his station, but rather by how completely he can satisfy her desires.

Seven Years to Sin by Sylvia Day
Seven years ago, on the eve of her wedding, Lady Jessica Sheffield witnessed Alistair Caulfield in a scandalous scene no innocent young miss could imagine.

As a successful merchant, Alistair has little in common with the rakehell youth she knew. But when newly widowed Jessica steps aboard his ship for a transatlantic passage, seven years' worth of denied pleasures are held in check by nothing more than a few layers of silk - and the certainty that surrender will consume them both...
"... I was glued to the pages of Seven Years to Sin. Mixed with explicit love scenes, charming story and the drama of life, Sylvia captured me and left me in awe. Hands down, you have to read this book!" —Tiffany, TheSeasonForRomance.com

Nauti Nights by Lora Leigh
Review by Ashley Lister: Nauti Nights is the third in a trilogy that began with Nauti Boy and concludes with Nauti Dreams. The story is based on the relationship between Dawg and Christa
From the back of the book:
“Blackmail is a dirty word, but Dawg will use it if that’s what it takes to get Crista where he wants her. His hungers are too hard and fierce not to. He doesn’t realize that Crista has a longing, too. She knows what he’s up to, what he’s capable of. He didn’t get that nickname for nothing. And before the night is through, Crista’s making him work for it.”
Ordinarily blurb of this calibre would have stopped me from reading further. Aside from the fact that so many sentences end with prepositions, there’s that one comment that has me well and truly puzzled: Dawg didn’t get that nickname for nothing. Why? Can he lick his own balls?
But, irascible reactions to blurb aside, I thought Lora Leigh’s title was enchanting, stylish and arousing. The plot made coherent sense, even though I was leaping in to the second book in a trilogy, and the characters were engaging and credible. Most important: the content was exciting and well-realised as erotic fiction.
For those aficionados of the genre who have yet to discover Lora Leigh’s talents, the Nauti series seems like a good place to start.
Desire Unchained: A Demonica Novel by Larissa Ione
Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.
A Seminus demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts—or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.
"This Demonica novel will singe you straight to the toes. The demons are fantastic, full of hellfire and animalistic allure…What really drew me into the story is the emotional desperation so expertly written into each of the main characters."
–Coffee Time Romance, 4 stars!
