Club Sin comes alive once again in this decadent new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy. A dedicated cop, Sawyer Quinn blows off steam by immersing himself in his role as a Master at the hottest club in Las Vegas. But when Sawyer goes after the perp who brutally beat his sister, he teams up with Chloe Nash, a sexy private investigator who awakens a sweet new need: to keep her to himself, away from the dungeon of Club Sin. Chloe is beautiful, smart, and too innocent for the BDSM lifestyle. Sawyer’s never wanted a woman like this before. Is her love worth swearing off the one thing that keeps him sane?

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.

Club Sin: A Series Primer

I’m not going to lie: any book that sells itself as “Perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey,” or “If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey, you’ll love this” automatically makes me lower my expectations. However, whether you love or hate that trilogy, it’s undeniable that it made erotic romance -- specifically BDSM-themed books -- very popular. Club Sin is very different from that trilogy.

Five Weeks of Fifty: Authors Discuss the Fifty Effect

With over 100 million books sold worldwide, we all know how Fifty Shades of Grey affected readers. But how did this blockbuster series affect romance writers, many of whom were writing erotic content long before Christian Grey became part of the lexicon. Today, six authors share how Fifty Shades of Grey changed the landscape of erotic writing for them.

Books to Buy: New Releases November 3

November is off to a hot and heavy start with the latest by Christina Lauren; a return to the Justiss Alliance by Tina Wainscott; a new Billionaire Boy’s Club by Jessica Claire; Martha Wingate’s latest mystery; Tanya Michael’s commitment-shy rodeo cowboy; a rake by Mia Marlowe, and more.   Wild Nights (Justiss Alliance #3) by Tina Wainscott The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice. When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her… Continue

Excerpt: FREED (Club Sin) by Stacey Kennedy

We’re thrilled to share an excerpt from FREED, the new novel in Stacey Kennedy’s BDSM series, Club Sin. This novel follows Mary Schmidt, a woman who’s spent her life a submissive, but only to one man: her now deceased husband and Elliott Foster, the brown-eyed Dom, who may just be the man to get Mary back in the lifestyle… FREED will be available for purchase on November 4, 2014. Freed by Stacey Kennedy (Chapter One Excerpt) by Romance At Random

FREED (Club Sin #3.5) by Stacey Kennedy

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny. Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the Continue

DESIRED Sneak Peek #3

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… Continue

DESIRED by Stacey Kennedy

Since Fifty Shades of Gray exploded a couple of years ago, the erotic genre has been saturated by kinky billionaires who have a particular taste for virginal subs. I could only read so many versions of this trope before it started to get monotonous. I became wary of the bored Alphas and their surprisingly skilled virgin consorts. Some of these novels read like borderline porn; I’m one of those snobbish readers who believe that erotica, like nude paintings, is art. It should go beyond sex and, to paraphrase author Kyra Davis, each sexual encounter should be a revelation of some sort. Not just sex for sex. So after wading through some sub-par erotica, one of my favorite smexy paranormal writers, Stacey Kennedy, started the Club Sin series. And because I’m a loyalist, I said I’d… Continue

DESIRED Sneak Peek #2

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 – 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… Continue

DESIRED: Sneak Peek

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… Continue

Cover Reveal – FREED by Stacey Kennedy – You Betcha, More Club Sin!

Mary Schmidt’s ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission has passed away. It’s been a few years now and she misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but the pain of his loss is still so deep she cannot imagining developing that kind of love with someone else. Elliott Foster instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for— the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive — now he needs to free her from her past love — not to forget, but to begin anew. OMG – this is so heart-wrenchingly wonderful that you will not be able to put… Continue

Do You Love Game of Thrones as Much as Stacey Kennedy?

I am a Game of Thrones junkie. Why? I honestly have no idea. I’m a romance author, which means I’m a big believer in having a happily-ever-after. Truthfully, any movies or TV shows that don’t end on a happy note leave me incredibly grumpy. I need that moment when I know that no matter what the characters have gone through that in the end they are happy. Now for anyone who has watched Game of Thrones, you’ll know that we haven’t seen a happily-ever-after in the series yet. Even as I watch the show I keep gasping in horror when someone dies or something horrible happens to one of the characters. And that seems to happen in every single episode, yet…I cannot get enough! So what is it that keeps me coming back for more,… Continue

Aidan is mine bitches. 4.5 ass-spanking stars!

EXCLUSIVE: Sexy CLAIMED POV switch featuring Aidan & Cora

The following entry is intended for mature audiences only.    In my newest release, BARED, we are introduced to the wonderfully erotic world of CLUB SIN. Today we have a treat for you. In CLAIMED, the first book in the CLUB SIN series, there is a brief dungeon scene that Presley witnesses of her friend Cora and Cora’s Dom, Aidan – the hero and heroine in BARED. We thought it’d be fun if we got a look at that scene through the eyes of the Dom who lived it, Master Aidan!      The soft rock music drifted over Aidan as he regarded his submissive, Cora. Restrained with a red ball in her mouth and a leather strap around her head, she sat with her back pressed against the dungeon’s wall. Her… Continue

Bared by Stacey Kennedy is on sale today – buy your copy here And now for your sneak peek – enjoy!

I need to touch you. I have to feel your warmth. I want you close. Aidan stared at Cora, who was stiff as a board. “Take off your clothes.” He regarded the tremble of her hands as she removed each item of clothing, one by one. She shivered at the cool air in the mountains, which was still unseasonably warmer than in summers past. All day Cora had teased him with her lustful looks. Which had been why he’d taken her not into the busy part of the campground but to a remote spot he’d been to before. He wanted her all to himself without watchful gazes. Tonight, she belonged to him. While he

#Saturday Snippet with Bared by Stacey Kennedy

In a novel that’s perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Stacey Kennedy returns to Club Sin with another wicked and wild tale of submission, seduction, and love. At Las Vegas’s exclusive Club Sin, Aidan Knight is the Master, unleashing the erotic yearnings of his submissive lovers. But his dominant façade conceals a devastating loss—something he instantly recognizes in his personally trained submissive Cora Adams. Sworn to unearth her secrets, Aidan uses his seductive skills to ignite her wildest desires until Cora yields to the pleasure she can find only with him. Cora came to the BDSM club to act out her sub-and-dom fantasies without ever revealing the heartbreak that haunts her. But Aidan’s masterful touch is bringing her closer to the edge . . . and deeper into a world of control and Continue
