Paradise Found by Frances Stockton

If you had the chance to enter a competition to live on a secluded island for a month with your perfect mystery man would you?

Cara first noticed Ian on the plane. She could see they were heading in the same direction but had no clue he was whom she would spending a month with on Paradise Cay. As soon as he comes up behind her though while she is waiting to get in the car you can feel the heat coming off him. They start off with a great back and forth banter, showing how well they click. Almost liked they were matched!

The task is to stay on the island for a month and if they do then they win some prize money to help fulfil their dreams. Along the way they might be finding new ones. Hot and heavy right from the moment they land on the island – well the sexual tension had been building on the journey itself. Once at a waterfall though it seems that the otherworldness of it all has made them act freer. At that moment all Cara is glad about is that Ian is a doctor and as he puts it ‘is always prepared’. Letting loose and having fun while just the two of them is fun but what happens when they get back to the mainland and their lives. Can they bring the feel of the island back with them?

Sex Wax by Tamara McHatton

Didn’t have a clue what tandem surfing was to begin with but after a Google search I have to say I’m impressed. Not that you would get me on a board, I’d totally fall in! The men have to have good balance and be beyond strong; the women have to be a bit bendy.

So Brooklyn and Swede seem like a great match. What starts out as a simple bit of flirting at the bar where she works soon turns into more when she gets taken into the fold with all the other tandem surfers. Brooklyn has never had that big a group of friends before so she is loving the dynamics of it all. It also helps that Swede is one fine specimen of a man who makes her go weak at the knees. He can’t wait to get his hands on her out in the ocean, on the board and off it. Loved how clueless he was with some of the things he told her though. Not getting how she would wonder what the hell ‘nuts to butts’ truly was. Other times you can tell he knows full well what he is saying, almost like word foreplay.

At first she just thought she would just be having some fun trying out some tandem surfing moves while Swede got ready for the tournament. Now she finds herself being his new partner as his other one got hurt. They are going to be spending a lot of time together over the next few days and hands are going to be everywhere. Chemistry is certainty buzzing between them and when they finally let go it’s hot. Will this just be a fun time weekend fling or turn into something more? With how well they click you hope for the latter.

Alice’s Sheikh by Suz deMello

Alice has grown up with a very screwed view on relationships, especially thoughts involving passion, from what happened to her parents. They lived and died with passion and chaos to the extreme. Something Alice has refrained from doing. At the hearing for their joint will it states that her parents estates will split between the three children but that they each have to do a years worth of selflessness. She has chosen to become an English teacher for Barr Aghiba Island. It’s only for a year so what could possibly go wrong?

Her journey doesn’t get off to a great start though as the airport she has landed in comes under siege and she has to be rescued. Just so happens that her rescuer is her new boss ‘Hot Harry’, she can now see why he has that nickname. In just a jump suit and taking charge of the situation he creates a reaction in her that she has tried to push away for too long. He is just as drawn to her as she to him, even if he tries to hide it at first, but it is not until a midnight swim that things really start to heat up. Passions are high but its clear Alice isn’t looking for just fun. She has created a challenge for Harry and he is more than ready to step up. She has waited this long without passion how much longer can she go?

Kismet by Alexa Silver

A forbidden love from a time gone by brought back for one night only. The underlying sexual tension is what builds between Jon and Alan. Something they held back from in their heyday while in the band. To begin with you start to view Alan in a certain light. Leaving those he loves behind and seeming not to care other than on this one night every year. A twist comes halfway through though that throws new light on the situation. A past love of theirs – Trina – comes into the picture and events lead to true emotions coming out to the surface. Only once they let go and admit what they have always been might they get what they have always wanted.

Alien Rights by Nicole Austin

‘To believe Earth harboured the only intelligent life would be rather arrogant and naive.’ – My thoughts exactly!

Emily’s night has an interesting twist to it. Just before closing up at the dinner one freaked out man comes in claiming to have been abducted by aliens – probes where involved! With her feeling a bit sorry for him she gives him some food and an ear to talk to before sending him on his way. Meeting him has reminded her that she has always thought how exciting it would be to go to outer space and explore different planets. Feeling like she needs something to change in her life on a whim she calls to the sky to wish on a bright star. Calling to Kalgron – the alien who abducted the guy from the dinner – to take her away. Little did she know that he was listening and more than ready to take her.

Kalgron is on a scouting mission to find a new planet for his people, so has been circling Earth for a short while examining its inhabitants to see if they would except them. When he gets a call from an earthbound beauty there’s no chance he is not going to answer her call.

Get ready for some probing, though for Emily it only means pleasure. His voice alone gets her going while being in the dark. Passion overflows logic and she doesn’t question anything. A little while later though and the same can’t be said. To say she is annoyed would be an understatement and she needs him to know it. All he wants to do is keep her but to do that she needs to know what she is staying with. Will his appearance scare her away or will her curiosity make her stay. Well that and the fact he has given her the best orgasm of her life from the power of his voice alone. If his voice does that she can only hope what his body can do.

The Agreement by Francesca Hawley

Zayna finds herself bound by an agreement she wishes she could change. It was fine when she saw her marriage to Thanos as one simply of convenience but in just a few short months she has started to fall for him. She fears that if she gives herself over too freely then he will grow board and not return to her.

Thanos made it clear from the get go that he would not be faithful so just wanted a marriage of convenience. Thought it was funny how when she then asked about her being faithful he almost had a fit. Seems its one rule for one and one rule for another. It was her idea to create a contract agreement to keep things fair for both of them so one wouldn’t have the upper hand. It’s only on her wedding night though that she realises she holds more power than she thought. She has always stayed quite when pleasuring herself before so stayed silent throughout. This seems to make him very unsure as to whether she enjoyed herself or not. She now knows that he is a proud man and will keep coming back to her to see just to see if he can get a reaction out of her.

In the months past Thanos has gotten more frustrated with his wife not showing an reactions in bed (so is she mind you, its getting more difficult to stay quite when all she wants to do is scream in pleasure). Thanos soon turns the tables though by making a last ditch effort to get his wife to open up vocally. You can see it would be a turning point for him also. He now only desires his wife, not others, and will do everything he can think of to keep her in throws of passion.

One Kinky Weekend by Berengaria Brown

When your passion gets a bit stale there are always ways to spice things up. For Zara it’s to ask her husband if they can have a fourway. His reaction to this suggestion sets the tone for what happens throughout – it’s a bit yes.

Not much in the way of back-story with this one but just straight into some fourway fun. Could almost say it was like reading porn in some places with some of the things they get up to. They clearly have nothing that is off limits and are more than willing to make this more than a one-time thing. Arms, legs, bodies everywhere but at least they all get their rocks off.

Side note – There is a name swap in the middle when Zara gets changed to Zoe.

Hot Buns by Marianne Stephens

I liked that you got a bit of a back-story leading to present day, and hopefully a future, with this one. You know straightaway that there is a lot of tension between Vinnie and Angela when they meet again. You then find out they were engaged so you just know there is a story behind that. Turns out its about a recipe at its core. Baking tore them apart so lets hope it can bring them back together.

Angela is in a bit of a bind as her new ovens aren’t being delivered for a week and she has orders to fill. When she finds out that Vinnie and his family could do with some extra money she sees it as her opportunity to help out and maybe fix what happened between them by offering to pay to use his kitchen at night for a week. Things certainly start to heat up in the kitchen; her penis shaped cookies only seem to be stoking the fire that’s waiting for a spark. Not long before that spark ignites. They know they need to talk about the past but want to live in the moment too. Neither realised how much they missed the other until they are touching distance apart. Lets hope its sweeter the second time round and lasts.

Weapon of Choice by Katherine Kingston

Nothing better than a historical romance with a bit of witches’ magic thrown into the mix. Selvya’s a bit of a fire starter but after her last battle she needs some help creating a spark. Luckily Jorden is close at hand. The two of them together soon start creating a lot of heat.

Selvya has the gift of fire but sees it more as a curse after what she was forced to do. Used as a weapon she was tricked into thinking if she didn’t her family would be harmed. After the battle on her way home she finds out the truth but ends up getting caught by the other side. After weeks in the dungeon she gets called up and an offer is made. If she agrees to help the side of the King she will get her freedom. From the moment she meets Jorden she is drawn to him and one touch is all it takes for sparks to fly – even if she looked a bit grimy at the time.

In the days that follow she has trouble trying to bring forth the flame. It’s only after Jorden puts his hands on her shoulders to get her to relax that it comes to life. He seems to be her key to unlocking her potential and he is more than willing to stay close. A battle is on the horizon, one both of them hopes to win, but what will fate have in store for them. Here’s hoping it’s a historical happy ending.

The MageWynd’s Cauldron by Charlotte Boyett-Compo

Finn is hot, I mean literally burning up hot. His aircon is broken and because he is on house arrest he can’t leave his room on the ship. A cold shower and walking around naked doesn’t seem to be helping so he collapses on the floor while waiting for the maintenance man to come. Not bothering to cover up, for lack of energy, all he’s thinking is that he has nothing this guy won’t have seem before. Well that was all he was thinking about until Maze, the female maintenance person, walks in shocking him to cover his junk before she gets an eye-full – not that he was quick enough, well she certainty didn’t mind. With being a MageWynd you would have thought he would have seen her coming, I guess he should have looked in his cauldron sooner.

Maze is bold, beyond sassy and knows what she wants so goes for it. Her flirtatious side comes out full force with teasing Finn in his current situation. Manages to turn round at just the right moment to see what those hands were covering better. She is there to do a job though so starts to see what the problem is. As it’s far too hot and she doesn’t fell like melting she takes off her jumpsuit, I thought Finn’s eye were going to pop out. Too bad for him that she had a swimsuit on underneath, well this time she does. When asking for his help while she’s up a ladder she passes him some screws and ends up getting on hell of a shock, and its not from the power its from him. Sparks for them mean a life mate whether they want one or not. It might be hot in there now but soon they take it to another level.

After Finn kicks her out due to him not handling the situation well she leaves him to suffer in the heat longer. When she finally returns to really fix the problem she does the same as she did before, takes her jumpsuit off due to the heat. Only this time she’s not wearing a swimsuit underneath. There’s only so much Finn can take until he gives in and gives them what they both want. The cauldron in his room might make them pause for thought as it shows them something they might not be ready for. But as Finn says the cauldron never lies.

Fun banter back and forth between them and when Finn really wanted to play he gave as well as he got. He might be able to see into the future but he didn’t see Maze coming, not that he is complaining one bit after he gets his taste.
