Wicked Weekend by Gillian Archer

Book 1 of the Pleasure Code

Release Date: March 12, 2012

Genre: Contemporary BDSM Erotic Romance


Why did Lauren Vaughn introduce her sister to the man she herself was crazy about? Now Lauren is watching the happy couple at their combined bachelor/bachelorette party—while Lauren sits all alone at the bar. Until she spots a hot stranger with the telltale black handkerchief in his pocket: the signal for "seeks no-strings affair with sexy submissive."

Lauren can't take her eyes off him. So when he comes over, she kicks her inner good girl to the curb and follows Jamie Forman to his room, where he makes her scream with pleasure all night long.

But Jamie is a complicated man. He can't handle how desperately he wants her in his bed—and his life. It's up to Lauren to teach him how to make all night last forever.

I liked this short story, that being said, there were a few small items I thought could be different/explained better. Where did the conflict/rivalry come from between Lauren & her sister? Why did they "hate" each other? A little more background info on Jamie would have been nice. I do understand this is a short story and things have to happen quickly, but, did Jamie & Lauren really have to jump into bed so fast? The heat factor between them was off the charts though! I would absolutely like to read more by this author.

Her Dark Protector by Carol Stephenson

Release Date: March 26, 2012

Genre: Romance: Suspense

Blurb:Florida state prosecutor Gail Malloy may have a death wish, but she has no idea how close she is to having it fulfilled. In charge of the case against a notorious drug lord, she's become the target of everyone on the man's payroll-and corruption has permeated the highest ranks. Fortunately for Gail, a stranger is keeping watch...

Haunted by tragedy and seeking revenge, business tycoon Jason Hawke joined the Justice Hunters, a secret organization dedicated to maintaining law and order. He'll do everything in his power to make sure Gail stays alive long enough to put the crime boss away for good. Even if it means keeping her with him day and night...

I really enjoyed this book! I am fairly new (about 1 yr) to the romantic suspense genre & Carol Stephenson is a new to me author! The story had great flow & energy. The characters were all well developed and the storyline kept me hanging on the edge. One teeny, tiny gripe-too many deaths-yeah, I know, suspense, thriller etc has people getting killed-JMO-this one a has couple too many for my tastes. Just wondering/hoping if there may be more installments from the "Justice Hunters"? I will definitely have to check out more of Carol Stephenson's books.

Forbidden Fantasies by Jodie Griffin

Release Date: March 5, 2012

Genre: Contemporary, BDSM, Erotic romance


After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed--and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth--except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B--Bondage and Breakfast--catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go

While reading this short story I put myself in Jessica's shoes and was quite surprised at the similarities between her & myself. Similarities that I think anyone who reads this story will find in themselves. COMMUNICATION!!! That is the name of the game in this story. Being honest with yourself & your other half. The sex/BDSM (light BDSM)in this book was a side note compared to the lessons learned about communication. Please, Please go read this story meanwhile I am off to have a nice long chat w/Hubby!!
