The Matching of Sarah Collins by Natalie Holly

Ruth West - Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Sarah: My community of Bradford has suffered significant losses due to an illness outbreak. The town council and our church pastor have decided to match and wed single women and men in the hopes of saving our rural farming community. Thankfully, I’m a widow and just over thirty, so the matching doesn’t involve me. With a job and a place to live, I’m enjoying my independence.

Chris and Jackson: We’ve lost our wives, who were sisters, and some of our children. When approached about the matching, we agreed – but only if Sarah was our bride. Undoubtedly it will surprise her, but we’re also sure she is just what our family needs. Publisher’s Note: This historical romance is intended for adults only. It contains explicit scenes, including ménage.

Seducing Sandy by Maren Smith

Ruth West - Tuesday, March 20, 2018

When journalist Sandy Ebelson decides she needs a breakout story to advance her career, where does she set her ambitious eye? Why, on the Castle, an infamous BDSM resort that has plagued her small town for years. Sneaking inside is only as difficult as buying a ticket and filling out a fake application, but when Sandy finds herself matched to ex-military masters Eric and Reeve, carrying out her investigation grows quickly more complicated.

Especially when it comes to Master Reeve, whose rough touch and dark authority make her body respond in ways she’s not at all prepared to understand. Sandy will do anything to get her story, and that includes pretending to be his submissive. What she doesn’t yet know is how much of what she’s doing is really ‘let’s pretend’ and how much is the real her, giving her heart to a man she has every intention of betraying.

Publisher’s Note: Like all the other stories in the Masters of the Castle series, this contemporary romance can be enjoyed as a standalone. It contains elements of power exchange, explicit language, and MFM ménage scenes.

Mastering Her Fear by BJ Wane

Ruth West - Saturday, January 13, 2018

Julie Martin pulled on Jackson Davenport’s protective urges the minute he stepped outside and saw her go flying off her swing to land in a heap of gangly arms and legs then come up smiling. When he discovered how her parents pressed her into competing in beauty pageants for their own selfish gratification, he took it upon himself to provide her with the friendship the little girl craved. Years later, just when his adult feelings – and body – began to want more from the beautiful young woman she’d grown up to be, Julie moved away to take the modeling world by storm. Jackson’s first encounter with the changes in her personality broke his heart and he severed all ties with her.

Six years later, Julie returns to Jackson a broken woman, unable to cope with the nightmare that changed her life forever. When he discovers her penchant for cutting herself to deal with the fear, he shows her a new side of him she’s never seen before, and a new way to get through the darkness that continues to plague her.

Even though Julie embraces Jackson’s dominant sexuality and the way his painful ministrations work much better at calming her fears, the truth of what happened the night her two friends were murdered stands between them. Will she be able to set aside her guilt to tell him the entire truth, or will she once again lose the only person who can complete her?

Captive Discipline by Taryn Williams

Ruth West - Sunday, December 10, 2017

Just 99 cents

Janys has been sent to research the archaic customs on Demeter. Slipping out after curfew, she was attempting to spy on a men's gathering when she was caught and, fearful of causing interplanetary problems, the Ambassador refuses to intervene.

Janys is charged with a serious crime, one that could lead to exile on the prison planet of Kollent. Worse, she has no defense – she is a trained sociologist, well familiar with the laws. But she does have some friends on Demeter, and one of them proposes a solution that's likely to save her life: marriage. Once married to a Demetrian man, Janys will be under his control – and correction. Seeing this as her only hope, she agrees.

But what has she agreed to? The Demetrian society believes in strict, severe corporal punishment. She quickly finds herself subject not only to her husband, but to her mother-in-law, for that is the custom of the land. Then an opportunity to escape presents itself. Dare she take it?

Publisher's Note: This full-length science-fiction romance is intended for adults only. It contains explicit themes and power exchange.

A Wintry Affair by Jamie Phillips

Ruth West - Thursday, December 07, 2017

The feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys has nothing on the feud between the Allesandros and the Pascoes.

Alicia Allesandro doesn't know why her father hates Ian's father. She only knows that at his age, if he learns that she is in love with his enemy's son, it would most likely kill him. Ian Pascoe has no idea what lies at the heart of this decades old feud, either. He only knows that his father blames Alicia's father for all the ills that have befallen his family.

But this will not deter these two star-crossed lovers. They are determined to be together—anywhere and anytime. However, it means sneaking around and hiding, which only serves to heighten the excitement of their secret encounters in which Alicia regularly goes over Ian's knee and receives a good, painfully delightful spanking. Fortunately, they have the cold, icy, snowy Northeastern winter weather to help shield them from small town scrutiny, but winter doesn’t last forever and their need is too strong to stop. Can they find a way to be happy together without anyone getting hurt?

Publisher's note: This book is a newly edited and revised version of a book previously published under the same title. This love story contains spanking and sexual scenes.

Immortal Sleepers Blood Awakening by Miranda Nichols

Ruth West - Wednesday, December 06, 2017

An Interview with Miranda Nichols, author of Immortal Sleepers.

How did you find your love of writing?

Writing for me has always been my hobby. I’m one of those people who don’t really like firm endings. I like for stories to continue on forever. So I often find myself dreaming up scenarios of what happened after the credits roll or the last page is turned. Then sometimes those continuations evolve into new stories with new characters and new settings and become an entirely new world for me to immerse myself and my readers in.

Did you have any big influences from other authors or even family members?

I draw inspiration from a lot of places so it’s hard for me to give credit to any one person. I’ve garnered a lot of support over the years from my Mom and other family members. I give a lot of credit to my agent, Stephanie Hansen, for pushing me to get my work out there for people to read.

Your characters seem so lifelike, were they made from examples in your life?

My personality is the type that makes it easy for me to relate to and understand other people. This helps a lot during character development. I have a general idea of how my characters think and what their values are. The entire character gets flushed out during the writing process as they react to the situations I put them in. I never really know how things are going to go until they happen, sometimes it’s even a surprise to me. That’s what makes the writing process exciting for me!

Is there anything you want to say to your readers that you haven’t yet had a chance to say?

Please buy my book when it comes out on January 29th! I always appreciate hearing when people enjoy my writing so reviews are always appreciated! And thank you in advance for your support!

Is there anything in the works for you? More books?

Yes, Blood Awakening is the first of the Immortal Sleepers series for which I have a total of twelve books planned. I am currently working on book two in the series, Awakened in Flame. There is a preview for this story at the end of Blood Awakening so be sure to check it out!

Her Ruined Reputation by Bridget Banks

Ruth West - Saturday, November 25, 2017

Title: Her Ruined Reputation
Author: Bridget Banks
Publisher: Blushing Books
Published: November 25, 2017
Genre: Historical Fantasy Romance, Medieval

Steamy and sizzling from the start of the story to the very last page of the book. Three stories are perfectly interwoven in this tale of political intrigue, murder, ambition, power, and sexual desire all revolving around Princess Isabella, Lady Hannah, and Madam Helene. The plot is fast-paced and hot, while leaving the reader throughly satisfied. The characters are bold and exciting, with a fairy-tale mystery that leaves you breathless for more. Princess Isabella desires to be queen and with the prince offering a proposal to wed and a chance at becoming queen soon due to his dying father, she hastily agrees and asks to bring her ladies along, including one that she is secretly intimate with. From that moment on, the story is full of murder and secrets, lies and betrayal as no one knows whom to trust. If you love historical romances or stories of kings, queens, and royalty than this book is for you. It's of course not for the faint of heart, as there are intimate scenes that don't necessarily fade to black.
