There is a certain “dirtiness” to the male characters in a Christina Lauren book and I always look forward to seeing just which level of dirtiness the new male lead will have. Let’s just say, I was definitely not disappointed in Finn Rogers and his expertise with rope. Well…he is a fisherman after all. Dirty Rowdy Thing brings us the story of Finn Rogers and Harlow Vega. They met in Vegas, were married for twelve hours, and now find themselves part of this dual trio of best friends. Finn is the rugged outdoorsman who is often quiet and takes on a heavy burden for his family. But there is just something about him and Harlow that has him letting go, being more himself. And that version of Finn is a very dirty, very sexual man. … Continued
Today I am excited to share exclusively here at R@R the cover for my upcoming erotic romance Naked. This cover is particularly special to me because unlike my previous experiences writing novels, this cover influenced the story. Naked was the first time I had a final cover before I had a finished book. In the midst of working on the story, with this hot cover in front of me, I was inspired to kick everything up a notch. Naked is the story of Gia Capello, a young woman who witnesses a shocking crime and takes refuge in a private, elite sex club — where the secrecy of her new identity is threatened by a powerful client who ignites her deepest desires. I hope this cover sparks your interest in this erotic love story as much … Continued
Today novelist Rachel Blaufeld joins us to talk candidly about how going to strip clubs inspired her novels Electrified and Smoldered. The question I’m asked the most is, “Did you go to strip clubs before, during, or after writing this? Are you going today? Now? Tomorrow?” Friends ask my husband, extended family members question my mother, readers are extremely curious if I have friends who are strippers, and most of my husband’s gang has offered join me in doing research. Okay, are you ready? Cue Drumroll. Yes. The answer is yes. I have in fact been to a number of strip clubs before writing Electrified. While the Electric Tunnel doesn’t really exist and all the characters that work there are fictitious, I don’t think it would be wise to write a book about the … Continued
I’ve been travelling a lot the last few years, to conventions and writing retreats, and on vacations. When I’m travelling alone I spend a lot of time in airports people watching and eavesdropping and of course, as a writer, wondering “what if….?” Well, my latest release All Messed up is that story of what if…? Who is that attractive stranger? What if he was attracted to you? What if your flight got cancelled and you had to spend the night in a strange city? What if that stranger seemed to be the one person who understood you better than anyone else? And what happens when your flight leaves the next morning? I had the idea for a story about two strangers who meet in an airport and form a connection a long time ago, but … Continued
Shattered Bonds tells the story of The Den Club Co-Owner Noah Bakker and Liv Delcour, sister to Vanessa Delcour, aka Mistress V another co-owner of the The Den whose story is told in Bonds of Courage (Wicked Play #6) — a book I loved. Shattered Bonds opens with a bang, an event that truly rocks this cast of characters. This is a story that features all the characters in the prior books so I would recommend reading at least some of the stories before this one. (I read Shattered Bonds having only read some of the prior books and I had no issues following the story.) Ms. Aicher did an amazing job taking one event (no, I am not telling you what it is — you need to read the book!) and using it as a … Continued
It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! It’s release day for DESIRED, the third CLUB SIN book. There are no words to possibly explain how excited I am for DESIRED to hit the e-reader shelves. It’s felt like a long journey for me and seemed to take forever to get here. I had been waiting to write DESIRED since CLAIMED. Now that it’s release day, I’m over the moon to share Kyler with you. He is by far my favorite Dom in the entire CLUB SIN series – though, Porter is slowly winning me over as I’m currently writing TAMED – but don’t tell Kyler that. He will always hold a special place in my heart, and I really do hope you enjoy him as much as I have. Today we’re revealing Chapter 3 of DESIRED. For anyone who has been following our posts over the past … Continued

I’m thrilled to be back and revealing Chapter 2 of DESIRED, coming July 22nd. If you missed last week’s reveal of Chapter 1, you can find it here – http://bit.ly/1oEpsXY. We left off with Kyler and Ella just meeting…and it so sweet and sexy, of course. Would we expect anything else from a CLUB SIN Master? Now our darling Ella is about to realize that not only is the Dom, Kyler off-the-charts hot, but he has decided to focus all that sexy energy entirely on her. Can you imagine? Yes, I’m drooling with you!! Kyler has a few obstacles in his way, of course the biggest being that Ella is a hundred percent vanilla. Though a Dom wouldn’t be a good Dom if he didn’t have a few tricks up his sleeve to see if he can pull her … Continued
July 22nd is nearly here, which means so is DESIRED, the third book in the Club Sin series. YAH! Anyone who follows me on social media knows that I have a huge crush on Kyler, the hero from DESIRED. He has been my favorite Dom since day one. I really don’t know what it is about him that has me swooning. Maybe, it’s his playful, yet dominant personality. Perhaps it’s that he knows how to use a flogger, but also understands when a woman needs to be held. Oh, and did I mention he’s a cop? I think it’s safe to say there are a lot of reasons why I adore this hero. We’ve got a special treat for you today and are revealing the first chapter of DESIRED – squee! By far, DESIRED was the easiest book I’ve ever written. It flowed with … Continued
Writing is usually a solitary endeavor. Just you, your computer and those people in your head who won’t shut up. Some days, those people are good to you. Some days, you want to pull your hair out trying to get them to talk. And then when you send your finished baby out into the world, all that pressure for success rests squarely on your shoulders. But wait, there’s another option: Rope your friends into writing an anthology! Now, you have three other people to share the crazy with you. And that’s how ONE NIGHT ONLY… came to be. I have to say, the idea wasn’t really mine. In November 2012, Olivia Cunning invited me to an original anthology with her, Cherrie Lynn, Cari Quinn and Raven Morris. That one had a Christmas theme, which was … Continued
Check out this steamy new trailer for RUINED by Tracy Wolff! Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me will be hooked on Ruined, an electrifying journey of emotional and sexual discovery that pushes two damaged souls to their breaking point—and beyond. Praise for Ruined “Tracy Wolff knows how to steam up the pages, and she proves it again in Ruined. If you’re looking for a hot read, curl up with Ethan Frost.”—New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J. Kenner “Fall in love under the spell of a master.

The Professional, Part 2 by Kresley Cole January 6, 2014 Pocket Star Graduate student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of wealth, wanton pleasure, and extreme danger… I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series. I understood the characters’ motivations better, the action was streamlined, and the sex scenes could thaw the Polar Vortex. Seriously, among the hottest I’ve ever read. We pick up right where we left off in book one, with Natalie and Sevastyan in the sauna. If you recall from book one, there is one big catch to their consummating their relationship: Once they have sex, they are bound together for life. Those are the rules … Continued
Pocket Star/December 16, 2014 ARE YOU READY TO PLAY? A scorching new erotica series about a young woman desperate to uncover the mysteries of her past and the hitman bound to protect her. From an opulent palace in Russian, to the wicked playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, to the sultry beaches of Spain, the two lovers will discover that even their most intimate—and forbidden—fantasies can come true… The plot set-up in this novel is the stuff prime time dramas are made of, and I mean that in the best possible way: A young, hard-working college student searches for her long-lost Russian parents who put her up for adoption, and gets way more than she bargained for when a Russian hit man shows up to take her back to the Motherland. Natalie is a feisty, … Continued
Just when I thought I was maxed out on BDSM erotica, I was enticed back in by Unrestrained, the story of a widow and the retired Navy SEAL who rocks her world. I’m a fan of erotic novels featuring older heroines, and Athena Summers is a classy, accomplished woman in her forties with her own wealth and status to boot. Another plus: Athena enjoyed a fulfilling, adventurous sex life before meeting the hero of the novel. Athena was married for twenty years, and it had been her late husband’s idea to take their play out of the bedroom and into a BDSM club called Club Release. Athena and Roy enjoyed a very rewarding erotic life at the club, where she made a name for herself as a skilled Domme. But in the two years since … Continued

Actors aren’t the only ones adept at wearing a professional mask. As a criminal prosecutor, I had mine and I worked with many cops who certainly had theirs. Cool. Calm. Solid and dependable. A cop protects others, so he needs to project all these things. However, many cops give off a sexy vibe without even trying. What is it about a “man in blue” that’s so darn intoxicating? There’s the uniform, sure. The handcuffs. The gun. But there’s also the confidence. The authority. Everyday, cops must overcome dangers that would terrify average citizens. This knowledge naturally lends itself to fantasies of meeting a man who is intuitive enough to know what a woman wants, dominant enough to give it to her despite her own inhibitions and insecurities, and gentle enough to cater to her heart … Continued
