THE MASTER (The Game Maker #2) by Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is an insta-purchase for me, her Immortals After Dark series is my go-to recommendation when someone wants to read paranormal. Her step into contemporary romance with The Game Maker series is shaping up to be exceptional. I loved the first book, The Professional, but it is safe to say, Cole outdid herself with THE MASTER...

Great Sex: The Scenes I Can’t Forget

As we approach Valentine’s Day weekend, it seemed like a good time to share some of my favorite sex scenes. I thought I had this in the bag because I do have a small collection in my head. I could have chosen the down and dirty ones, but as I was going through the reel in my head, I realized that sexually explicit, raunchy romps aren’t always the most memorable. I love sex scenes when they’re the culmination of a particularly emotional moment between the hero and heroine, or when there’s some humor mixed in. So, in no particular order, I’d like to share a few of my favorites. ** warning explicit content.

DARK SKYE (Immortals After Dark # 14) By Kresley Cole

Dark Skye is the story of ill-fated childhood best friends, Thronos and Lanthe. Thronos is royalty in his Vrekener clan. A real life prince of a winged warrior. Vrekeners reside in the secluded floating city of Skye Hall. It is far above the clouds, heaven of sorts and the residents live a life of austere moderation to say the least. No impure thoughts, no pre-marital sex, no drinking, no dancing, no flashy clothes, no thinking outside the box. Self control to the most excruciating degree. Lanthe is Queen of Persuasion, royalty of the Sorceri. Sorceri worship gold, live in the moment, and are carousing, wanton sexual beings. Sorceri are the night to Vrekener day but Lanthe is fated to be Thronos’ light. Oh yeah, family feuds, beheadings, 500 year pursuits, and deeply seated opposing positions… Continue

Charmed by the Highlanders: My Favorite Scottish Romances

If you know me, you know I love a good romp through the heathers. Give me a book filled with castles, thick brogues and burly men who bathe in the cold mountain stream and I’m a happy girl.  It’s a well known fact that I started my blog over two years ago because of my love of Highlanders. (I was sick, on the couch with nothing else to do so I sat and read whatever I could get my hands on. My friends came to visit me while I was couch-ridden and of course the topic turned to books. More than one friend suggested I start a blog and well, Bored and On the Couch wasn’t a catchy blog name so Scandalicious was born.) The series that started it all for me was Janet Chapman’s Continue

Review: The Professional, Part 3 by Kresley Cole

He makes the rules . . .
Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms. In this third serial installment, the sexual and emotional dynamic between Natalie and Sevastyan is a dizzying volley of dominance and submission, openness and secrets, generosity and brutality. Natalie and Sevastyan are in hiding now that her father has been killed and all hell has broken loose in the Russian Mafiya turf wars. On the relationship front, things are just as volatile: Now that Natalie and Sevastyan have consummated their relationship, it is expected that she belongs… Continue

The Professional, Part Two by Kresley Cole

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… Continue

The Professional, Part 1 by Kresley Cole

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,… Continue
