Triss Long fills the pages of her erotic novels with real live scenes acted out by her neighbor.    From afar, she watches him play erotic games with his many lovers.  The tools he uses to bring his latest conquest pleasure include blindfolds, ball gags and whips.  Triss is captivated by how his skillful hands seem to bring them to unspeakable pleasure.  Secretly, she wishes that she could change places with them and enjoy her own exotic fantasy.

Triss fantasy turns into a reality when a chance encounter puts her in the right place to meet Vince Black.  Vince is a master of BDSM; he is well skilled in providing the ultimate sexual release.   

Will Triss throw caution to the wind and allow Vince to take complete control of her body?  Or will stay in her safe, dull, world where only her most intimate thoughts can be captured on paper?

TEACH ME MASTER is a superb offering that provides a spellbinding look into BDSM.  This is the first book I have read by Qwillia Rain, but I assure you that it will not be my last.  I was highly impressed at how she was able to weave these two characters into my heart.  It takes a highly skilled author to be able to create a worthwhile BDSM book.  Ms. Rain earns high marks for TEACH ME MASTER.

Permanently Legless

Author: J. L. Merrow

Publisher: Amber Quill Press

Purchase:  http://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-permanentlylegless-676859-145.html?referrer=romjunkies

Chris had met Josh one night while he was clubbing.  The two had an immediate attraction to one another.  Josh gave Chris his number and asked him to call him; Chris knew that their paths would probably never cross again because in a few days he was being shipped off to Afghanistan.

In Afghanistan, Chris fought gallantly for his country, but in a blink of an eye his world changed when he was gravely injured.  When he awoke he realized that his injury had cost him both of his legs.

Chris returned to his hometown wounded in body but still able to keep his sense of humor.  Restless, he decided to visit his favorite club to try and reclaim some normalcy in his life.  He was surprised to find Josh at the club.  The look of shock on Josh’s face spoke volumes; realistically he knew that such a handsome man as Josh would never want to be tied to someone with such an obvious disability.

Josh had never been able to forget the one night stand with Chris.  Seeing him now confined to a wheelchair was a shock.  Will he be able to get past Chris’s injury to be able to recapture what they had both experienced in the past?

PERMANTENTLY LEGLESS revolves around lost love being recaptured.  J.L. Merrow has done a wonderful job in writing PERMANTENTLY LEGLESS.  Chris and Josh are characters that you soon will not forget.  I would have liked to see their story a little longer as the last pages seemed to cheat the reader out of the happier ever after feeling all romance readers crave.

Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison’s life revolved around his career in the army.  When he received divorce papers, he knew that fighting for his country had cost him his marriage.  His friend Vic Carponti refused to let his best friend wallow in self-pity.  He demanded that the two of them paint the town at a local bar before they were deployed to Iraq.  Shane knew there was no way Carponti would allow him to bow out of the invitation so he reluctantly agreed to go with him.

Jen St. James had survived breast cancer, but the price she had paid for surviving had been losing her left breast.  Her friends refused to allow Jen to close herself off from the outside world.   They knew it was up to them to see that Jen got back to living a full life.  They coaxed her to come with them to their favorite bar to say farewell to their husbands and friends.

At the bar, Jen encounters Shane Garrison.   Shane’s darkly handsome looks and sexy smile quickly melts her heart.  In his presence, she forgets her loss of a breast and for once feels whole.  As the two of them part, he leaves her with a kiss she will long remember.

In Iraq, Shane is gravely injured; his injuries send him back to the states and back into the arms of Jen St. James.  Jen is shocked to learn her newest patient is Shane Garrison.  She knows as a nurse she must maintain a professional appearance; although she can’t get Shane out of her mind.

Shane is not accustomed to asking for help, but he knows that Jen is his only way to get well and walk on his own two feet.  Will these two wounded souls be able to find the healing comfort they both need in each other’s arms?

Jessica Scott has taken the romance world by storm with her smash debut BECAUSE OF YOU.  Shane and Jen are characters that you can’t help  fall in love with and endure their life hardships.  I was so impressed with this book, I couldn’t put it down and it cost me a sleepless night as I stayed glued to its pages.  October can’t come soon enough for I can’t wait to read the second book in this exciting series.

Other planned titles in this series include:

•Until There Was You – October 2012

•Back to You – TBD

Twenty three year old Susannah Barrett’s husband Caleb had left her when he found out she was pregnant.  She was forced to fend for herself and her unborn baby.  One night she was awakened by gunshots.  She feared that outlaws would storm through her front door.  Luckily, she was left untouched but the next morning she went to see how much damage had been done to her land.

While walking over her land, Susannah found a man lying face down; she believed that he was dead and wondered how she was going to bury his body.  As she searched for some form of identity, she was startled to see he was very much alive.

Luckily the man was able to walk and Susannah was able to get him safely to her cabin.  He had no memory of how he had gotten shot or what his name was.  As he laid down to rest, he hoped that once he awoke he would remember everything.  When he awakes, he finds Susannah having labor pains.  He assumes that he is her husband and helps her with the birth.

Susannah doesn’t tell the man that he isn’t her husband; she allows him to believe that he is the baby’s father.    As she gives the final push that allows her daughter to enter into the world she sees loving compassion in the man’s eyes, a look that she never had witnessed with Caleb.

Susannah knows that it is wrong of her to deceive the man in believing that he is her husband.  She fears the day will come when he is able to remember his true identity.  When that day arrives will he forgive Susannah of deceiving him?

FORGET ME NOT is a book that you soon will not forget.  I am always impressed with any book that is published by Diana Bold.  She definitely knows how to provide the best reading experience for her fans.  FORGET ME NOT is another award winning book to add to this highly talented author’s collection.  This reader/reviewer eagerly awaits the next book she is assured to publish.
