Welcome to my little corner of the world; a lady's den of depravity in which anything is possible. I am an Erotic Romance and ManLove author, and I want nothing more than to share my saucy stories with my fellow depraved sensualists. So please come, sit, relax and lose yourself in my tales of forbidden love and enchanted romance. 

 

 

Rydstrom & Sabine

Kiss of a Demon King  - Kresley Cole

Such an amazing read! Enemies to lovers. I loved this.

 

In this instalment we meet the Demon King, and brother to Cadeon. Captured and imprisoned by his hated enemy, Rydstrom endures tortures unthinkable to a male like him. Especially as his so-called mate is the one doing it all. Sabine pushes him to the edge of insanity with her sexual wiles. Yet things get all the more interesting though when Rydstrom escapes. Let’s just say, Sabine gets a taste of her own medicine.

 

This story was somewhat similar to previous instalments, and if I were to be honest I was a little disappointed that Murdoch wasn’t the lady-killer I thought him to be. However, it was still enjoyable. Short and sweet, yet packed with enough action and emotional turmoil to make it a hit with me. Murdoch and Danii’s romance was as rocky as everyone else’s, but they do find what they are looking for in the end - with a few added bonuses. It’s worth a read.

Cadeon & Holly

Dark Desires After Dusk  - Kresley Cole

Cadeon *le sigh*

 

Every time I read one of these books I fall in love. This time with a rather crude, yet sexy, Demon prince. Cadeon is one of those characters that you can't help but love. Whenever he acted indifferent toward his fated mate, making him die a little inside each and every time, tugged at my heart-strings. His loyalty is tested throughout the whole book, making it one very emotional whirlwind of a read. Never mind the drastic life-style changes Holly has to over-come. Yet again we meet two fantastic characters struggling to come to terms with the difficulties, and love, thrown their way.

Conrad & Neomi

Dark Needs at Night's Edge - Kresley Cole

I am seriously in love with these Wroth brothers.

This installment of the series was a great read. A twisted romance between a ghost and a crazed vampire. The ups and downs of their relationship, and Conrad’s sanity, kept me roped in till the very end. It was impossible not to fall for these two unfortunate characters. Both with dark pasts and embarrassing secrets. Ones they over-came together. Their story is a true romance, and I hope to see more of them in future books.

Bowen & Mariketa

Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night  - Kresley Cole
I have no words...
 
This instalment continues where the last left off...in the Hie. Following his bad behaviour - locking his friends and the witchling in the tomb - Bowen must go back to free them in order to avoid full out war! From here on out he has a hard time trying to get back into everyone's good books, especially Mari's. Action, adventure, lust and a plot twist to knock you on your butt! Not to mention a sexy Scottish Lykae. I worship you, Kresley Cole. 
 
 

Sebastian & Kaderin

No Rest For The Wicked - Kresley Cole

Sebastian Wroth *le sigh* 

 

Okay, this is yet another amazing instalment to the IAD series! There is so much drama, and giggles to be had, while following the characters as they participate in the Hie. Backstabbing, and Fist-fighting, and Lies, Oh My!  Never a dull moment. Mix this with Bastian and Kaderin's twisted love affair and you have the ingredients for one action packed, steamy read. 

 

Lachlain & Emmaline

A Hunger Like No Other - Kresley Cole

Tortured Lykae male. Innocent Vampire female. The makings of one amazing read!

 

From the very first chapter I was hooked. It is not your typical love story, their's is a relationship formed in fear and insanity which gradually develops into something magical. I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next between these two. Lachlain being all kinds of messed up just couldn't stop himself from ruining any good he had done. And Emma was just too shy and fearful to say any different. Yet it doesn't stay that way and this makes the story and characters all the more loveable. I absolutely love Kresley's world of the Lore.

Niko & Myst

The Warlord Wants Forever  - Kresley Cole

This is a great start to an amazing series. 

 

The Wroth brothers are among my favourite males within the Lore, yet I would have liked to have seen more of Nikolai in his story. I feel cheated that he only got a short story and not a full novel. The dark and mysterious Commander with sexy accent and brusk ways, driven insane by his fated Bride... what more could you ask for? I really enjoyed the plot and characters. The Valkyrie are amazing, and I love them! Frat-girls for eternity. Shame Myst wasn't as amazing as her sisters, however. Didn't change the fact that this was a great read. 

Qhuinn & Blaylock

Lover at Last - J.R. Ward

By far the best book in the series, and I am not saying that because I am biased... well, maybe a little, but still. I really enjoyed this installment of the series. I am a huge Qhuay fangirl and have been looking forward to reading this for a while now. It was an emotionally pact read which kept me on the edge of my seat! I was not disappointed, even though I did want more, I was just glad to see these two males finally get together.

I'm now eager to see where Layla's interest in Xcor will lead. How will a bonded male survive without his female!!?

Tohrment

Lover Reborn - J.R Ward

Once again I find myself disappointed, this is not what I expected. I found it difficult to connect with the main characters in this installment. I had wanted something better for both Tohr and Autumn, yet their book is full of half-truths and self-hate, and it was kind of depressing. This made it hard for me get caught up in their story as much as I did with the others. A shame really.

However, I did enjoy the scenes with Qhuinn, Blay, and Layla.

Payne

 

 

I was kind of disappointed with this book. I was expecting more for Payne and Manny. Their relationship wasn't as all empowering, emotional or fierce as the other Brother's were. It didn't hold my attention very well, I actually grew bored with them.

 

I was more interested in the V/Jane/Butch storyline. In all honesty it was the only reason I kept reading. I really enjoyed the intensity of it all, especially the scene in the penthouse between V and Butch. Hopefully the next installment will be an improvement.

JM/Therror

Lover Mine - J.R. Ward

Another great installment to the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. At first I wasn't sure about the whole JM/Xhex pairing, but as the story went on it was obviously clear that they were kindred spirits and destined for each other. This was yet another emotional read, these two have been through so much shit that it's heart warming to see them get their HEAs.

I also enjoyed the side stories. I am a huge Qhuay fangirl, the build up to their story is killing me! Lash is a twisted feck who in my opinion deserves his own book. And I'm interested to see how things will go for Payne. Must say, this was a really well written book with enough love, action, and suspense to keep everyone happy

Rhevenge

Lover Avenged - J.R. Ward

I have to say, this installment was a much needed improvement from the previous two books. I actually enjoyed Rehv and Ehlena's story. It was good seeing them get their HEA following all the negativity in their lives. There was much heartache in this book, not only for the main characters but the rest of the Brootherhood too. It reminded me why I love these hulking big vampires and their shellans so much. I can't wait to read the next book in the series

Phury

Lover Enshrined - J.R. Ward

This has to be my least favorite installment to date. I was so looking forward to Phury's story following Zsadit's book. He came across as such a good male. The love he displayed for his twin, the sacrifices he made for all the Brothers, especially V as Primale, made me love the guy.

However! What we got was a whole lot of self hatred and drug addiction. In my opinion, the author destroyed Phury's character. She took a near perfect male and tore him apart until he was more ruined than his twin. From a male of worth to schizophrenic druggie overnight. I really did not like where his story lead him, and do Not get me started on the Wizard! I have no civilized words for that headache of an inner voice.

I also feel that another Brother got duped when it came to his HEA. There wasn't much romance for the main characters, yet what we did get of Phury and Cormia's relationship toward the end of the book was good. I just hope we get to see more from them in the future

Vishous

 

 

In this installment we get to learn about the elusive Vishous, and his dark past. His history was always something which interested me since reading the first book, and to be honest I expected more. The male suffered, his whole life was a fuck up which could have been prevented by his mother, yet wasn't. Even after meeting his fated female things just got worse, I didn't think the poor guy was going to get a break, and to be honest I'm a little disappointed with how quickly his story ended. I feel cheated! Hopefully we get to see more of him and Jane in future books

Dehstroyer

Lover Revealed - J.R. Ward

I really enjoyed this book, but at times I was a little conflicted. The storyline was great. There were some amazing twists revolving around the war with the lessening society, ones which have Butch playing center stage after all his yearning to be of use. His transition into the Brotherhood was great, and I can't wait to see what happens in the future.

Butch & Marissa's relationship, however, bugged me a little. There was too much back and forth with these two. One minute they were all loved up, and in the next they were indulging in some self-destructive pinning. It became annoying towards the end of the book, but it honestly didn't really take from the story. It was still a really enjoyable read.

Joshua sighed contently as he held him tight. “Damn, T, I have missed you.” At those words, Tristan fused their mouths together in a hard kiss. It was almost desperate. All he wanted to do was feel, taste, and smell his lover. He wanted to drown in the man he loved and forget everything else that had happened over the past few days. Tristan never wanted to think of Logan ever again, especially now that he was back where he belonged, in Joshua’s arms.

 

     As if sensing his thoughts, Joshua held him tighter, deepening their kiss as he walked them backwards into the sitting room. Tristan went willingly, stumbling over whatever was on the floor until the backs of his legs hit the couch. Not once did they break their kiss as they took the time to relearn each other’s bodies, peeling away clothing to caress smooth, warm flesh.

 

     Tristan groaned into his lover’s mouth, their tongues duelling for supremacy as the kiss became more heated. It felt divine, a balm that soothed his anxious mind. He never wanted to keep anything from Joshua, yet he feared losing him over what had happened between him and Mclean. Considering his past, it would be difficult for his man to think on anything else, and that was something Tristan could never fault him for. He should stop this and tell him the truth, yet he was a selfish bastard, and as Joshua tugged him tighter into his embrace, Tristan pushed those horrid thoughts aside and lost himself in sensation. Kissing his lover fiercely, he groaned and gasped, their teeth clashing as they devoured each other. He wanted to taste every inch of this man before him, and would have done so if Joshua had not broken the kiss to drop to his knees.

 

    Tristan watched on bated breath as his zipper was lowered to release his stiff rod, his shaft clasped gently in a sure grip. He loved it when Joshua treated him to one of his amazing blowjobs, but right now, all he could think about was either being buried balls-deep within his man’s tight ass, or vice versa.

 

     “Damn, baby, no! I just want—”

 

    His words died in his throat as the hot cavern of Joshua’s mouth engulfed his cock completely, his lust-fogged mind urging him to relax and enjoy. Tristan grunted, reaching for his lover’s head as he began a slow roll of his hips. “So good, Joshua! Always so damn—”

 

    Pleasure shot through his shaft and balls as blunt teeth caught the swollen head of his cock teasingly. Glancing down at his man, he smirked at the challenging glint in his blue eyes. “You are so fucking hot, baby. I love seeing your greedy lips wrapped around my cock.” At his husked words, Joshua sucked hard, his lover’s cheeks hollowing as he did so. “Dammit!”

 

    Joshua teased him with that wicked tongue, massaging the underside of his shaft before pulling back completely. Tristan was about to voice a complaint when the base of his cock was gripped hard. Joshua smirked up at him, stroking his throbbing rod before sucking one of his balls into his talented mouth. The way he worked him had Tristan thrusting forward harder than before, the ruddy head of his cock caressing his man’s cheek.

 

    “You always taste so damn good, T,” Joshua purred in that sexy, deep voice of his as he once again took Tristan into his mouth. It felt amazing, the slick glide of his lover’s hot lips and tongue as he suckled gently, his deft fingers reaching up to squeeze and massage Tristan’s damp sac before easing down to probe his puckered hole. It was too much.

 

    “Ah, fuck, baby. Don’t tease me.” On a groan, Tristan arched backward against those eager fingers, tightening his grip on Joshua’s hair as the tip of one finger breached his ass. Panting hard, he let his head roll back against his shoulder, his body heating as his man continued to lave and suck his hard cock. He couldn’t take any more. If he didn’t stop it now, he would come in that welcoming mouth.

 

     “Baby, please, I can’t—” Tristan grunted as blunt teeth scraped the underside of his shaft once more, sending a shudder throughout his entire body. “Fucking hell!”

 

     Grabbing his man’s shoulders, he pulled him to his feet and captured his lips in a fierce kiss. Joshua chuckled against his mouth, his large hands trailing up Tristan’s back to cup the nape of his neck possessively. Taking control once more, he spun Tristan around, then pushed him forward to kneel on the arm of the couch.

 

     “I’m going to drive you wild before giving you what you want, T. I’m going to fucking savor you.” Joshua’s voice grew thicker with every lust-coated word he spoke, his warm, callused hands caressing Tristan’s naked back and ass as he parted his cheeks slowly. Anticipation had Tristan mewling like a horny housewife as he waited for what he knew was coming next, and on the initial contact of his man’s hot tongue on his puckered hole, he jerked off his perch on the couch.

 

    Joshua growled low in his throat as he gripped Tristan’s hips hard and forced him back into position, his tongue delving deep instantly. Tristan cried out, fisting the couch cushions as his lover kept his word and drove him insane. He fucked him with fingers and tongue, stroking his shaft in the same languorous rhythm, making him ache deliciously.

 

 

    “Joshua, please…I’m going to…fuck, baby, I need to come.” Was that pleading voice really his own? Tristan was surprised at how needy and desperate he sounded. He would never have allowed anyone to do this to him in the past, never would have given up control so easily. Yet this was Joshua, the only person to have ever reduced him to this, and it made Tristan love the gorgeous, sensual man all the more.
