Author: Cathryn Fox

Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

Purchase:  http://www.amazon.com/A-Lick-of-Flame-ebook/dp/B007ZFPOBS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343474333&sr=8-1&keywords=a+lick+of+the+flame


Sean Adams had won the Mr. Fireman championship a few years back.  Overnight, the title had turned him into every woman’s fantasy.  There wasn’t a single woman in the town of Beachville, Maine, who wouldn’t want to him in their bed.

Security Specialist Madison Kelly had been hired to oversee Sean’s latest calendar shoot.  She shared her own secret fantasy about Sean for he was the one that had rescued her from a burning building and had saved her life.  The fire had left her with scars; she knows that someone as handsome as Sean would be way out of her league.

Ever since Sean rescued Madison, he can’t seem to get her out of his mind.  Now he finds that she has been hired to protect him.  When he catches desire in Madison’s eyes, he has every intention of insuring that he shows Madison that he returns her affection.  Will he be able to convince her that he sees her as a beautiful, attractive woman, one that his heart desires?

BOYS OF BEACHVILLE, BOOK 2- A LICK OF FLAME is a wonderful in-depth romance novel.  Cathryn Fox has done an outstanding job in creating the characters of Sean and Madison.  How Sean is able to break through Madison’s insecurity is romance at its best.  I was highly impressed with Cathryn Fox’s writing talent; this was the first book I have read of this talented author, but I assure you that it will definitely not be my last.

Master of Submission 2 – Destined for the Dom

Author: Jan Bowles

Publisher: Siren Publishing, Inc.

Purchase:  http://www.bookstrand.com/destined-for-the-dom

Erotic dancer Zoe Leighton finds herself down on her luck, she is out of cash and is close to being evicted from her apartment.  Her salvation comes in the form of Hunter Black.  Hunter and she had grown up together in St. Mark’s children’s home in Pittsburgh.  When he was eighteen and she was sixteen, he decided to set out to see what the world offered him.  He made a vow that he would one day return to her; now fourteen years later it seems that he has made good on his promise.

Hunter had joined the Marines and seen many horrific things in the Middle East.  His experience in the service had hardened him towards the world.  When he reconnects with Zoe, he remembers his vow to one day return to her.  He offers her his help out of her dilemma she finds herself in and Zoe readily accepts his offer.

Zoe is intrigued to learn that Hunter is a Dom in the BDSM lifestyle.  He introduces her to Club Submission.  His skillful hands bring her body to unspeakable heights as she becomes his submissive. 

Will Hunter be able to let down his guard down long enough to allow his heart to feel the love that Zoe is willing to give him?  Or is the hardship he has endured in his life has made him incapable of knowing the healing power of love?

MASTER OF SUBMISSION 2 – DESTINED FOR THE DOM is the second book in the MASTER OF SUBMISSION series.  Having read the first in the series, I can assure you that either book can be read as a standalone novel.  MASTER OF SUBMISSION 2 – DESTINED FOR THE DOM features a reunion of two individuals who both have experienced the worst of life situations.  Now reunited, the two of them hope to find the healing balm that will help sooth both their damaged hearts.  This combination of sweet romance combined with a BDSM theme makes for one electrifying reading experience.

1 Night Stand Series – Blind Need

Author: Dakota Trace

Publisher: Decadent Publishing

Purchase:   http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00723OD5G/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00723OD5G&linkCode=as2&tag=romancejunk0b-20

Xaviera Navarro’s life changed drastically the day she was blinded when her car overheated and sprayed Freon into her eyes.  Her fiancée could not accept her blindness and left her with her only companion of her guide dog Lucy.  Xaviera manages to put the past behind her and accept her disability.  To move forward with her life, she contacts Madame Evangeline to arrange a one night stand to give her body the satisfaction it craves.

Ignatius “Nate” Ramirez is a fire jumper.  He was injured in the line of duty that resulted in him being scarred.  He feels that women will be repulsed by his scarred appearance.  When his captain orders him to take a vacation and find a woman to have sex with, he consults Madame Evangeline to arrange for a one night stand.  He makes it imperative that his “sex night” will be done with the lights off so that his partner cannot be shocked by his appearance.

When Nate meets Xaviera he does not immediately recognize that she is blind.  He can see that she is a high class lady who is used to getting her way.  He is determined to provide her a mind blowing night that she soon will not forget.  What he didn’t anticipate is feeling an immediate attraction to Xaviera.  Can two wounded souls find the healing balm to sooth their hurts and rebuild their confidence in each other arms?

1 NIGHT STAND SERIES – BLIND NEED is a wonderful way to get lost from life’s hardships.  Xaviera and Nate’s story contained all of the elements that made for an exquisite reading experience.  This is the first book I have discovered in the 1 NIGHT STAND SERIES, but if all are as addictive as this one book, I feel that I am in for many sleepless nights.  I was highly impressed with Dakota Trace’s writing style and I will be looking forward to her next book she publishes.

Hey, Nobody’s Perfect

Author: Ann Herrick

Publisher: Books We Love Ltd

Purchase:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008EKCHSQ/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B008EKCHSQ&linkCode=as2&tag=romancejunk0b-20

On the way to school, Sivia Groner is splashed by a van and finds herself soaked.  When she arrives at school she finds the same van parked in a disabled parking lot.  She figures the “jerk” is no more disabled then she is and parked in the space illegally.

Sivia barely makes it to her Home Art class and finds that  she recognizes the new student, Keeley Parrish, as the same person who splashed her on her way to school.  From Keeley’s wild hair to his brightly colored clothes it is obvious that he is secure in himself, even though he was born without legs.   It is obvious by his actions, that he doesn’t allow his disability to get in his way of living his life.

Keeley invites himself to share a lunch table with Sivia and her friends.  Sivia harbors a secret crush for Brad Coty, but he only sees her as a friend.  She thinks that he is in love with Marcy Stratton, who already is dating the star basketball player Todd Bowman.

As Keeley and Sivia spend more time together it is apparent that Keeley is developing feelings for Sivia.  Sivia is unsure if she is able to get past the looks that occur whenever people see Keeley and her together.  Will Sivia be able to get past Keeley’s disability and be able to accept the love that he is offering her?

HEY, NOBODY’S PERFECT is an outstanding teenage romance.  I was highly impressed with the characters of Sivia and Keeley.  The supporting characters of Brad, Marcy and Todd added so much in-depth character to the overall development of this story.  I feel this is a book that every teenager should read.  There are so many life lessons in this one book that it is a very eye opening experience.  Ann Herrick is a wonderful author who has allowed her readers to go into the lives of a set of high school teenagers.  It is refreshing to see how they experience their own way of finding the love they deserve.
