Books to Buy: New Releases November 17

Today’s the “Day”

It’s release day for Sylvia Day’s latest, the second novella in her Afterburn duo. “When it came to playing games, my lover Jax was a master strategist. He pulled strings behind the closed doors of D.C.’s most powerful political players, and somehow still found time to nearly sideline my career. What he didn’t know was that when I didn’t like the rules, I threw them out and made my own. I wasn’t going to let Jax get away with it. I wasn’t going to let him get away at all.

Okay, it’s an added plus and writing those scenes always leaves me pink cheeked. Though for me, what makes a BDSM book so hot is the emotional connection between the dominant and the submissive.


The world is hot for romance & we can all thank EL James for the explosion. Julie Kenner is a successful author in many romance sub-genres & now she embarks on a new venture with erotic romance, RELEASE ME is on sale in December — will you fall for Damien Stark too? Nikki Fairchild, the heroine in my upcoming novel, RELEASE ME, falls hard for the darkly sexy, enigmatic Damien Stark. Honestly, I can’t blame her. I’ve fallen, too. There are so many things that make a hero appealing. In my case, I fell for Damien the moment he popped into my head.

Did you recognize a correlation between Stephanie Meyer’s story and EL James as ***fan fic?
