Sacred sexual rituals bring Tara’s soul to the ancient Temple of Astarte

Tara is a young American who travels to Jerusalem, where she meets Yoni, a handsome Israeli who is a sexual shaman. Yoni and his wife Hagar take Tara on journeys of deep self revelation, using ancient rituals and sacred sexuality, that link her soul to the ancient Temple of Astarte, which stood in Jerusalem before the monotheistic revolution of the 7th century BC.

A priest of Yahweh is pitted against the ancient temple priestesses

In a parallel story, a sexually frustrated priest of Yahweh vows to destroy Astarte’s temple and her sexual rites. An ancient sacred scroll surfaces containing orders to wipe out any form of worship other than that of Yahweh.

Ancient and modern religions merge at the nexus of spiritual sexual secrets

Who wrote this early tome that so deeply influenced the history of religion and of the world? How did the Love Goddess priestesses respond to attempts to destroy their path? With magical vibrations, the author weaves together ancient history and modern fiction and sweeps the reader into secret chambers where sexuality and sacredness meet in awe. This book will change the way you see the history of the world, religion, culture, and sexuality.


In Kedesha, young American girl Tara travels to Jersulam where she meets Yoni and his wife. Both of them, and in particular Yoni, take Tara on a journey of self-discovery, of growth and of  acceptance, using ancient rituals and sacred sexuality–and accepting her own sexuality, which was long banned by religion that saw female sexuality as something demonic.

The story is a postivie one, with a deeply influential message and a journey of growth, of one’s mind and spirit. In this book, the author relays that it’s okay to enjoy oneself, that it’s all right to derive pleasure from the joy of feeling alive, from the pleasures that life – and in particular, sex – can give. Our body is not just a body, it’s part of us, of who we are, of our soul and spirit.

This book is not for everyone and if you’re not very open about sexuality, some parts of this book could definitely make you blush or feel a little awkward. Despite that, it’s definitely worth reading and quite an eye-opener.

Trapped in a mountain cabin with three, possible four, women….every guy’s dream, right? Or could it turn out to be a nightmare?

Dr. Sean Paisley needs to find out how to bring these women together – his survival depends on it. To make matters worse, he’s in love with all of them….made passionate love to all of them. Throw in a nasty grizzly bear and the dark forces of the government and the situation becomes even more dire.

In the end, he was stuck with Belinda, a hysterical, suicidal, homicidal maniac of a person, confined together in the wilderness of the onset of winter. Now both their lives are at stake.

Last year, I read and enjoyed Girl Within Girl Book 1: Unraveling, the first book in the series, so I was looking forward to reading the second book in the series, and it didn’t dissapoint.
You would think that being trapped in a mountain cabin with several women is every man’s dream, but for Dr. Sean Paisley it turns out to be a veritable nightmare. To make matters worse, he’s in love with all the women, and they all have some sort of feelings toward him. Add in dark governments secrets, nasty grizzly bears, and you have some real suspense putting you on the edge of your seat.
Just like the first book, this sequel is equally fast-paced. All the characters are well-crafted and three-dimensional, and they all have different personalities that the reader can keep apart. The story has some interesting twists, and overall, it’s an excellent erotic thriller.

Wild sex adventures and orgies mix with scientific discovery at Siberia University

Encounter the naughty side of life at the university in Siberia where, like at most colleges, anything goes: sexual adventures, orgies, and more. Alex’s academic work there is cutting edge. It enables top scientists to produce the first information storage discs that herald a new era: the computer age.

Experience the enticing Tel Aviv singles scene

Then take a peek at the wildness and intensity of the life of young people in Israel. Edith’s daughter, Ruth, moves in with her boyfriend in Tel Aviv, leaving Edith very lonely. In her daughter’s neighborhood, Edith discovers a group of young former soldiers in the big city for the first time, for better or for worse. They attend university by day and pour drinks by night.

Can Edith induce her lover to leave all else and fulfill their shared destiny?

“Why am I alone, actually? I’m always alone. Inside this great love”, Edith muses. She presents her lover, Alex, with an ultimatum: He must leave his wife and family and come live with her. Will Edith finally fulfill what she believes to be her destiny and have her beloved all to herself?

I previously read and reviewed the first three books in the series: Joy & Survival and Mystery & Survival were both 3 star reads and the third book, Charm & Survival, was a 3.5 star read for me. After enjoying the series so far, I was looking forward to reading book number four, Magic & Survival. And guess what? The book didn’t dissapoint at all. In fact, it was my favorite of the series.

In this book, Edith’s daughter Ruth has moved in with her boyfriend, leaving Edith rather lonely. On top of that, Alex is still officially married to his wife… And Edith feels very alone and like no one understands her. She wants Alex to break up with his wife, and leave his family… But will Alex make that choice? And if he doesn’t, will Edith be strong enough to move on? And if he does… Will they be strong enough to be together, and be the epic love Edith so desires?

I loved this book, and how it brought the relationship of Edith and Alex to the next level, and really forced Edith to think about her priorities and what she wants in life, and in love. She was less naive here than she was in the previous books, which was a welcome change too. With several hot and steamy scenes, it’s an excellent erotic romance story.

Steaming hot lovers are reunited by tragedy . . .

Edith can’t capture Alex, the wildly attractive ladies’ man who she believes to be her destiny. On his way to a romantic rendez-vous with another woman, Alex suffers a terrible car crash. The tragic event returns him to Edith. After a long stay in the hospital, bandaged and injured, Alex is now a broken vessel, his beautiful face cracked with ugly scars.

Edith’s reward for undying love that does not judge: five-star sex!

Edith welcomes her lover back. In her arms Alex becomes himself once more and graces his beloved with the professional, five-star sex that Edith has come to know and love.

Tantalizing sex with tales of mind-boggling adventure from the wilds of Siberia

Alex also regales Edith with countless stories of his wild and daring exploits in the wilderness of Siberia. His audacious personality and bold curiosity led him to experience unbridled sex and adventure in the untamed forests, mines, and villages of that huge Soviet wasteland. Join Edith as she is transported to Siberia by Alex’s descriptions and then return to their steamy love-nest in Israel.

I previously read and reviewed the first two books in the series: Joy & Survival and Mystery & Survival, and rated both of those 3 stars. Charm & Survival, in my view at least, surpassed both books, being my favorite in the series so far.

Alex is a ladies’ man. Edith, who believes Alex is the love of her life, should know that by now yet she stubbornly refuses to admit it to herself, even when Alex goes out for a romantic rendez-vous with another woman. On the way over, Alex suffers a terrible car crash, though, an event that turns him to Edith. As he’s now stuck to a hospital bed, injured, scarred, Edith becomes his confidante.

He tells her of his adventures back in Siberia, some of those rather sexual in nature, and Edith and Alex grow closer together as Alex heals.

More than the other books, there’s a strong erotic element in this one, and Alex and Edith are finally becoming like real partners in a relationship. Maybe not a very conventional relationship, but a relationship nonetheless. I liked Alex more in this book than I did in the previous ones. Edith also appears slightly more naive, although sometimes I still wanted to knock some sense into her.

Anyway, fans of travel stories, of erotic adventures, and of struggling characters will enjoy this book. Definitely for adults, though, as it comes with a lot of steamy scenes.

It takes three men to satisfy one woman’s needs…

Single mom and massage therapist Ella Winthrop isn’t looking for a relationship. She has enough problems without risking a business that barely meets her needs. Then her world is turned upside down by three men, each offering something she isn’t prepared for—love so deep it hurts, sex so hot she’s afraid she’ll melt from the pleasure, and a future beyond her wildest dreams.

Steamy businessman Cade Jackson has it all—money, looks, a giving heart, and a dominant nature—but Ella refuses to date a client even if she’s lusted after him for a year. After his brother’s death, Garrett Winthrop moves back to town opening old wounds and even darker fantasies. Dr. Derek McGregor gives her balance and understanding that speaks to her soul. All three men force Ella to question the limits of a traditional relationship.

Ella’s Triple Pleasure is the first book I’ve read that feature one woman and three men! I’ve read plenty of menages, but three men, how does Ella find time to do just about anything else, was my first thought. I was curious to start reading the book, and I wasn’t dissapointed.

Ella is a single mom and a massage therapist. She isn’t looking ofr a relationship, but rather, the relationships, or in any case, the men, seems to find her!

There’s steamy businessman Cade Jackson, who has a dominant personab ut is also a client, and Ella refuses to date a client even though she’s insanely attracted to him. The second eligible bachelor is Garrett Winthrop, who moves back to town and opens old wounds Ella thought had long since healed. Bachelor number three is Dr. Derek McGregor. My favorite of the three was Cade, but each man brings something new to the table, and they all challenged Ella’s beliefs about love and relationships.

This book is a sizzling, mind-blowing romance with not one, not two, but three men. It was an eye-opener for me, and I really enjoyed the book. Recommended to fans of erotic romance.

As regular readers of my blog will know, I’ve read quite a few books in the Experience series already. I’ve consistently rated these books 4 stars and more. First Experience, Weekend Experience, Birthday Experience, European Experience, Friends’ Experience and Island Experience – I read all of these and enjoyed them immensely. So of course, I was thrilled to dive into the next book in the series, Domme Experience.

So far, Sam has always been (or mostly been) the one in charge of Sam and Kelly’s relationship. From the moment they first met, they formed a rather unlikely couple, but as the books progressed and you see them connecting with each other and talking to each other, as a reader you start to root for them and start to believe in them. They have a lot of respect for one another and it clearly shows. Despite how “open” they are in their sexual relationships, they’re very close and trusting toward one another too.

But in this book, it’s not Sam who is in charge anymore – it’s Kelly. Kelly starts exhibiting her dominant side, and I really enjoyed getting to know that part of her. She’s more confident than ever, not afraid to take charge, and this leads to a lot of new experiences for the couple.

What I also enjoy about these books is that it’s not just about sex or about romance. It’s about much more, about family dynamics, about ordinary and not so ordinary life situations (like the parts about Sam and Kelly’s business, for example).

The books are sensual, and very intimate. Not just between the characters, but as a reader too – you start feeling connected to these characters, and you start wondering how they can be so free in their relationships and life, whereas most people nowadays definitely don’t have that kind of freedom to explore their sexuality, their desires and fantasies.

Recommended to fans of erotic romance who are looking for a book that can give them an intimate journey into the character’s minds and motivations, while at the same time offering a sensual story.

He has two girlfriends already, and he wants to make her his third conquest. But will Thursday be able to cope with that, and with the complicated dynamics of being in a polyamorous relationship?

The book is at times hilarious, at times eye-opening. It’s an interesting book, that’s for sure, and fans of erotic / contemporary romance looking for something new, should give this book a try.

After being stuck in a dead end relationship with her abusive ex-boyfriend, Zelda wants to say goodbye to relationships and say hello to no-strings sex. Preferably with a man who owns a lingerie collection larger than her own. So when Pytor Valentine pings into her inbox after Zelda decides to navigate the world of online dating, Zelda thinks she’s found the perfect man. He’s everything should could as for: handsome, well-read, owns an extensive collection of lingerie, and is looking for unattached sex.

But after seeing Pytor wrapped up in silk, all of his hard muscles and sharp curves trimmed with lace, Zelda isn’t sure one night of white hot passion is enough. But with Derek muscling his way back into her life and Pytor not looking for a relationship, Zelda doesn’t know if she’ll ever get more than sex.

If Zelda wants to survive with her heart in tack, she can’t fall in love. Too bad she’s pretty sure she already is.

In I Won’t Say (I’m in Love), protagonist Zelda has been struggling in the love department. She’s been stuck in a dead end relationship with her ex-boyfriend for three years (not to mention he was abusive towards her). Now she’s desperate to move on, preferably with some no-strings-attached sex.

She decides to try online dating, and soon gets a message from Pytor Valentina, a police officer who seems the perfect candidate for what she’s looking for: handsome, interested in sex with no strings attached, and he has the same interests in the bedroom as she does. They’re a perfect match – except that Zelda soon learns that no strings attached doesn’t mean she won’t develop any feelings she’s sharing her bed with. And with Derek trying to find a way back into her life, and Pytor not looking for a relationship, Zelda has to figure out what she wants, and if she can handle sex without having feelings…or if maybe she’s already in love.

This was an entertaining, erotic, sizzling read with great characters, an engaging plot and quality writing. At just under 200 pages, it was also a fast read, and I finished it in less than two hours. Recommended to fans of erotic romance.

Fate is relentless in its pursuit of Talia Jacobs. Presented with unimaginable turns of chance, she is drawn into the depths of tragic losses then catapulted to the extraordinary heights of life’s joy. Take the journey with Talia as she undergoes her sexual, social and physical metamorphosis from a vulnerable girl into a mature young seductress. Nothing in life is ever as it seems. Is she blessed or cursed? Will she ever find the man who will love her like no other, fearlessly caressing the deepest part of her being while intertwining his soul to hers in a dance that holds the unspoken promise of forever?

 Wantin is the first book in a series about Talia, a young woman who spends most her time traveling. Confronted with a terrible loss, she travels to make sense of the past, to find her true self, and to shape a future for herself. From heights to lows, Wantin follows her journey as she looks desperately for love.

The author did an amazing job describing the different cultures Talia comes across throughout her journey. The book is very character-driven. Talia undergoes a lot of growth and change as she turns from a young girl into a young woman, and as she deals with heartbreak, loss, and also with happiness and learning to love herself.

I look forward to reading the next book, and finding out more about Talia’s journey.
