In the Bare by Lacey Thorn

In the Bare by Lacey Thorn (Bare Love series book 6)

ISBN: 9781419924613

Publisher:  Ellora's Cave

Reluctantly, Charlie Tate heads out to a cabin in the woods offered to him by close friend and fellow detective Gil Daniels for a few days of enforced leave. Some beers, a hot shower and a sexual fantasy featuring his dream girl, Detective Miranda Duncan. It could only be better if she were with him.

Determined to seduce Charlie, Miranda follows him to the secluded cabin. When he answers the door in nothing but a towel, the gloves come off—along with said towel! Before the weekend is over, she will love every inch of Charlie and convince him they belong together. Little does she know, he has the same plan.

Let the seduction begin…

Review --
In the Bare is a quickie addition to the Bare Love series.  Quickie being the operative word, too quick.  Lacey Thorn does know how to write some hot sex and In the Bare does have hot sex.  The small glimpse of back story for Charlie has intrigued me though.  And I missed our treat of seeing the ever present Daniels family.  But all in all, In the Bare is wonderful and left me wanting the next Bare Love.

Breath of Magic by Regina Carlysle

Breath of Magic by Regina Carlysle (Mistletoe Magic series book 1)

ISBN: 9781419918872

Publisher:  Ellora's Cave

Powerhouse attorney Liza Woodward knows a little something about losing control and it’s been her life’s mission never to do it again, especially when it comes to small-town lawyer Tyler Blackwell.

Ty takes one look at the woman he’s always loved and knows it’s way past time he seduced away the control she wears like a suit of armor. It will take a steady hand, a bit of dominance, and a little breath of magic from a Christmas Elf to win this sassy Texas woman.

My Review --

Breath of Magic is the beginning in the Mistletoe Magic series, a series about the 3 Woodward sisters.  Regina Carlysle delves in to the story of Liza Woodward, a high-powered Dallas attorney returning home for Christmas and the sale of her family's ranch after the death of her parents.  Handling her parent's estate is her ex-boyfriend Tyler Blackwell, small-town attorney, a man she hasn't seen since she ran out on him 10 years before.  When an abrupt snowstorm hits town, courtesy of three conniving elves, Liza and Ty are trapped together to rediscover their passion and come to terms with their relationship.  This appealing tale brings about the irresistible charm of the Christmas season.  I was so entranced I ran out to buy the rest of the series. 

Excerpt --

Liza’s muscles tensed in anticipation and she prayed with everything in her that he couldn’t know what looking at him did to her. This was a mistake on so many levels. But God! She’d never been able to resist Ty Blackwell. He was bronze and dark and so ripped with muscle, he made her mouth water. Hastily she flicked her tongue across her lower lip as she took in the mounds of his sculpted chest. It was lightly smattered with dark, crisp hair that flared across his pecs then thinned to arrow down, bisecting his torso to disappear into the waistband of worn denim. His profession hadn’t softened him a bit. Lean yet muscular he was a man who looked as spectacular in jeans as he did in a suit. When he smiled, a deep and sexy dimple popped out near the corner of his scrumptious lips. He wasn’t smiling now. His face was hard with passion, a tiny muscle jumped in his jaw as if he were holding himself back with every ounce of control he possessed.

Oh, she knew all about control. It was the very thing that had deserted her from the moment she looked into those drenched chocolate-colored eyes of his.

Yep. She was a goner.

Ty held her gaze as he unsnapped and unzipped his jeans. She’d almost forgotten that country lawyers tended toward the ultra casual when not in court but that suited her just fine. Lordy, he looked good in worn denim. Without moving his eyes from hers, he reached into his back pocket and pulled out a condom. One side of his mouth lifted in a naughty half-smile as he tossed it casually to the desktop where it landed near her hip.

“I was ready for you, Liza Lou.”

“Bet you think I’m easy.”

“There’s nothing easy about you, darlin’,” he said as he pushed the jeans and his pristine white briefs together past his hips.

“Ah, man.” Liza practically moaned the words as she got an eyeful of his cock, rising high and hard from the nest of black hair at his groin. Ty was a real-life, honest to God refresher course in male beauty. Was he bigger than she remembered? Oh yeah. Maybe he was. His erection was thick and ripe with color, distended veins coursing the length of him as if pointing straight to the heavy, broad plum-shaped head. Liza’s mouth went dry as she recalled the wonderful masculine taste of him.

She wanted to reach out for it. She wanted to stroke him and take him in her mouth but he didn’t give her a chance. With a low sound, Ty leaned over and took the front of her thong between his teeth and slowly, tantalizingly pulled it from her body. Finally, he took the garment in his hand and rubbed the drenched cloth against his chest.

Liza gasped. She’d never known a naughtier man.

“Don’t look scandalized, Counselor,” he drawled slowly. “I love the way you smell when you’re hot. I want your scent all over me.”

“You’re bad.” She whispered the words wanting to be shocked but instead her body pulsed in a wild, untamed rhythm. “I should go.”

Ty shook his head. “Uh-uh. You want bad so much you can taste it and I’m gonna give it to you.”

Last Call Europe: Chocolate Shock by Selena Illyria

Last Call Europe: Chocolate Shock by Selena Illyria

ISBN: 978-1-60521-297-5

Publisher:  Changeling Press

All romanced out, Love Fairy Alastrina is tired of putting together happy couples. All she wants is a little bit of "me time" to forget her job for one night. She strides into Last Call: London looking for some action.

Chocolate Shock: Heat packed sexin' -- no baggage required or desired.

Rebellious leopard shifter Garrison Fredricks may be the answer to all her needs. Some sexy talk and a bit of action is just what the love fairy ordered. Only problem is he has a teensy-weensy little secret that may piss her off. And a Love Fairy pissed off is not a good thing.

My Review --
Last Call Europe: Chocolate Shock is loaded with super hot sexin', a gorgeous shifter and a love fairy.  Trina is at the end of her rope.  All she needs is a little recuperation time so she heads to Last Call bar to blow off some steam.  Once there she orders a Chocolate Shock and what she gets is Garrison, one sexy leopard shifter.  Man, oh man, from this point on, you're in for a sizzlin' good romp filled with mind-blowing sex.  Selena Illyria packs a lot of punch in this short story and you won't be disappointed with the results. 

Excerpt --
Garrison's beer arrived. He took a pull from it and slouched in his seat, still bored, still restless. The door opened and out of habit he glanced toward the entrance, only to have his breath catch in his throat. His heart skipped a beat and then sped up. Warmth flowed over him as his body tightened. His cock hardened and pressed against his jeans.

"Oh, fuck me," he groaned, as he watched the woman in the tightest jeans he had ever seen stroll into the bar and wind her way gracefully through the crowd. She had a corset that showcased her high breasts and a small waist. Her ass made him want to bite his bottom lip to hold back the moan threatening to escape.

She was a tiny thing with riotous dark brown curls streaked with pink. When she turned around, he saw her face. Her features were delicate with a small pert nose. Her lips were full and tempting, slicked with shimmering pale pink gloss.

Blow job lips, he thought, and he wanted those lips on him, covering his body in sweet love bites before she sucked him off 'til he shot his load down her throat. His cock jumped as the fire burning within him became an inferno lapping at his veins.

His leopard scratched at the flesh bars of its prison, wanting to go up to the woman it desired and mark her with its scent. She made things worse by turning back toward the bar, giving him another glimpse of her perfectly rounded ass. The corset left a wide strip of skin exposed above the waistband. Her perfect mocha skin was adorned with a colorful tattoo done in glittering pink ink. He had to strain his eyes to make out the glyphs and symbols on her lower back.

"Lean over some more, love. Give daddy a good look at what it says," he urged softly. As if she heard him, she stuck her ass out further and he sucked in a breath as his pulse pounded in his ears and need roared through him. He had to shake his head to clear the lust wrapping around his mind like a gossamer web.

He squinted to see better and read the tattoo.

"Fairy Alastrina, daughter of Elan, servant of Labhaoise." He stroked his chin, his fingers slightly burned from the abrasion of his stubble. Half of his brain saw opportunity to bring a genuine Fairy to Eros, and the other half wanted to fuck the living daylights out of her.

"Alastrina." He tested her name on his tongue. The sound of his voice came out husky with the edge of a purr. An image rose of him pounding into her pussy as she cried out in ecstasy before he came himself, spurting his seed deep inside of her as he called out her name, and he swore. Their sweat-slicked bodies moved and ground against one another as they started yet another round.

"Fuck, fuck, fuck," he chanted. This was not what he needed. Tomorrow he would be going to see Eros. A meeting with him was draining. The love god liked to pick and poke at Garrison's mental shields. It was a game of chicken because Garrison would be doing the same. Five hundred years of servitude to Eros had taught him all of the god's weaknesses but no way to exploit them, although Eros knew all of Garrison's weaknesses and abused them every opportunity he got.

One of his weaknesses was standing a few feet away. This night was either gonna be hell or heaven. He wouldn't put it past Eros to send him a sexy little gift in the form of this Fairy. Whether it was a trap or not, he was going to fall into bed with her. The question was how. There were others who had noticed her arrival. One of the bolder admirers strode up to her. Before he could even open his mouth he was shot down and sent on his way, a deep red flush of embarrassment on his cheeks for his trouble.

"Mmmm, sassy, I like that." Garrison sat back and watched as, one by one, men and even a few women went up to curry her favor. After the fourth person was sent away he couldn't help but wonder why they all wanted a piece of her. She was gorgeous but there had to be something else. He decided to test a theory.

With great concentration he dropped his mental shields a sliver and tasted her power. It was like the sweetest, thickest honey. There was a hint of spice, an indefinable quality that made its potency richer, more seductive to the palate. Power rolled off of her in waves.

Understanding dawned on him all at once; she was a Love Fairy. Legend had it that to be touched or even come in contact with one could bring you good luck in the love department. They weren't hitting on her. They were asking for her services. He felt bad for them but most of all he felt sad for her. Must be tough never being off the clock to some people. Then again, he could understand how she felt. He was at Eros' call night and day. Didn't matter where he was, who he was with or what he was doing, if Eros summoned him Garrison had to go.

As he studied the woman, his desire burned through him. Instead of doing his usual saunter up and try his luck routine, he decided to wait and see what developed. If he played his cards right, there would be no need for him to do anything.

Scott got a little more than he bargained for when he played the mall Santa. Now he is making his list and checking it twice, because he knows who has been naughty or nice, and he has special plans to give one especially naughty girl a lot more than a lump of coal in her stocking this Christmas.
