Review: A Touch Of Frost

ATOF A Touch Of Frost by Rhian Cahill

4 out of 5 Licks

International bestselling author Rhian Cahill kicks off a steamy new holiday series about a very Christmassy company and the three directors who need more than a little mistletoe.

Jack had a great reason to be over Christmas: it’s not seasonal blues, it’s his family business, and there’s only so much tinsel you can have in your life without feeling bah humbug about it.

But this year is different. He’s home after a long absence, with fences to mend, bridges to build and a commitment to change he intends to keep.

Elle loves Christmas, and she is not about to let an arrogant Scrooge like Jack Frost ruin it for her. He might have her libido flashing like fairy lights, but she’s been burned by a guy on the rebound before and she doesn’t need a Boxing Day-bargain boyfriend.

But there’s more than a little magic in mistletoe, and it may just see Elle and Jack ringing in a very happy new year.

I love Christmas stories.  They just make me happy and A Touch Of Frost is no exception.  This novella length book is the perfect read to get you in the mood for the holidays and other things.  ;)  Jack and Elle are easy to like.  Even thought this is a novella Rhian does a great job giving us enough background on each character to feel like you know them a bit.  There isn’t a lot of conflict, but I didn’t feel like I needed it in this book.  A Touch Of Frost is a fun, quick read that will leave you wishing for a little frost in your life.

Let’s Have a Contest!

I’ve had a year full of ups and downs.  We’ve officially been in Houston for a year now and the whole family is so much happier.  It’s not all perfect, but it is a lot better!  :)  I had a lot of medical setbacks this year but I have a few (yes a few lol) diagnoses now and am receiving treatments.  I also joined a gym and started working out.  I’d love to lose weight, but I’m mostly doing it for my overall health.  Working out will help with the arthritis pain. I’m looking forward to a healthier me next year.

There are so many events going on near me that I was able to go to several signings this year.  The highlights were Wild Wicked Weekend in San Antonio and RT in NOLA.  I’ll be doing both conventions again next year and I can’t wait!  I got to see several of my friends and made some new ones.  You know who you are.  If you’ve seen me at conventions you probably won’t believe it, but I’m actually pretty shy.  I don’t have a lot of friends close to me so I always enjoy the times when I get to see my crew.  I love you all!!

I thought giving stuff away would be a great way to celebrate the end of the year.  One lucky person will receive a bunch of books from my giveaway shelves (some signed of course) and a ton of swag.  If the winner happens to live outside the US I will substitute with a $20 gift card to Amazon or B&N or somewhere else if you want.  lol Click the link below to see how easy it is to enter!  You never know I may even add extra prizes if there are a bunch of entries.  ;)

Review: What Matters Most

MedWhatMattersMost What Matters Most by Erin Nicholas

5 out of 5 Licks

The Billionaire Bargains, Book 2

Things come easy to Tony Steele. Money. Women. A good time. It’s all a piece of cake. Until that cake turns into the wedding cake of Tony’s best friend and the woman of Tony’s dreams, Reese Chaplin.

Tony can’t fix this problem by writing a check. And when Tony finds out his “friend” has been cheating on the woman who’s stolen his heart, he doesn’t hesitate to steal her away. Even if it’s her wedding day.

Nothing about Reese’s big day goes according to plan. She walks down the aisle to marry one man, and winds up in a tawdry Vegas chapel marrying another. After a hot night with Tony, the only thing Reese regrets is she’s the only one who can remember it-thanks to a few too many shots of tequila. Reese doesn’t want Tony’s money, but admitting they’ve made a mistake and walking away from him isn’t easy. Especially when she begins to catch glimpses of the man behind the wallet.

Product Warnings:
Contains a billionaire playboy who can’t handle his tequila, a Vegas wedding, hot phone sex (and other kinds of hot sex), and a woman who knows how to make a point-even if it requires jumping out of an airplane.

I’m purring like a happy kitty so I must have finished an Erin Nicholas book  Every single time I finish one of her books I sit back and sigh with pure pleasure.  It’s a wonder how she manages to write such satisfyingly sweet romances that have dirty sex involving food.  lol  I couldn’t wait to read Tony’s story.  We got a taste of him in No Matter What and I knew he would be so much more than what he seemed.  Tony comes across as a carefree playboy but he really is a big teddy bear.  He’s wanted Reese for so long, but never made a move because the women always come to him.  Much to his dismay his best friend wound up with the woman he wanted.  When he finds out his friend cheated on Reese, he couldn’t let her marry him without knowing the truth.  They jet off to Vegas to help her forget her woes and wind up married themselves.  Tony wants to take full advantage of this unplanned wedding and he doesn’t plan on letting her go know that he has her.  Things go great for a little while but reality comes crashing in and all he wants is his marriage to Reese back.  As usual I couldn’t put down this book once I started and I never wanted it to end.

Buy One, Get One Free = One for You and One for Me

Now we are going to try something a little different.  Tina Hubbard has written a guest post for us.  There is even a link to coupons!  Yay! I’m eyeing that new We-Vibe hard!  I have the first version of the We-Vibe and it is awesome! The new updated one looks amazing!

For years I was the type of person who diligently planned out holiday purchases for each person on my list, always making sure that my budget was rock-solid from the get go. But every year, without fail, unexpected gift expenses will do me under.

It’s a situation we’ve all been put in around the holidays. A coworker or neighbor brings you something more than a tin of cookies and suddenly you’re scrambling around the house trying to find something that doesn’t look too “used.” Or you pull out one of two completely transparent excuses including, “Your gift is in the mail!” or “Oh, shoot. I haven’t had a chance to wrap your gift yet!” I’ve been there, and it always ends the same way. So there I am, back out at the store, dipping into the budget my husband and I put together for our own celebrations.

So a few years back I changed my tactic and started buying things that my husband and I liked or wanted for ourselves, but that I could keep wrapped just in case I needed them later on. They’re what Hello Bee refers to as “Backup Gifts.” If I get an unexpected gift, great! They can have these wonderful holiday candle holders. I don’t need anything more than what I planned for? Great! I get to keep those sweet holiday candle holders.

But this year, the new hubs and I are trying to save some money. No big deal, right? Well it wasn’t. That is until he threw me a curveball, saying the only thing he wanted was, to put it nicely, make our nights a little less silent this holiday season.

Now, that’s not to say that our sex life is boring. However, when you’re trying to cut costs and your guy tells you that all he needs to be happy for the holiday season is you, wearing nothing but a smile, you can’t help but want to give a guy something extra special.

As you can probably guess, that’s where my backup gift plan gets tricky. It seems impossible to get gifts that could possibly be used for someone else, that you really bought for the purpose of having an awesome night of sex with your husband, right?

Wrong! This year I have successfully completed the impossible.

While I have a few friends who find a dildo beautifully dressed up with a Christmas bow nothing short of hysterical, I decided it best to keep things relatively sensible. I bought some Suntouched Massage Candles that are great for setting the mood, but tame enough that they could easily be used in a pinch as a last-minute gift for anyone. Then I filled my online shopping cart with some romance novels like Falling or Flying, which I know my girlfriends love. That way, if I need to give my neighbor one of the gifts I have planned for my friend Sarah, I have a backup I know she will enjoy just as much. Win-win.

Then I did a little responsible splurging using one of the coupons at Adam and Eve to buy a We-Vibe 4 Plus. Maybe it’s not something you’d want to give to the elderly secretary at your office after she gives you a hand-knitted sweater, but I definitely have some friends who I’m sure would be thrilled with it. If you’re wondering how a vibrator is something my husband would be interested in, I’ll admit, the benefits of that little toy are pretty obviously for me, but the tech side of it is a real draw for my husband.

Last year, he spent an hour tinkering with and setting up our new Smart TV. Well, this year I can almost guarantee he’ll do the same with a vibrator that uses wireless, Bluetooth technology, iPhone apps, and a rechargeable remote. Plus, let’s be honest, including a vibrator in our sex life relieves him of some of the pressure to get me to the big O. Also, when it’s easier to get there, it’s likely we’ll both be up for fooling around more often.

All and all, it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

At the end of the day, I know my husband and I will be happy spending some time together, and if we get to include fun, new toys in the mix, all the better. But even if they end up being used in the grand scheme of backup gifts, it’ll still make us happy knowing that no one we care about was left feeling forgotten.

But hey, not everyone can finish their shopping at an adult store—I get it. So if you’re not feeling up to the challenge, I’ll leave you with this parting gift of wisdom instead: If you’re not going to have extra gifts around, I’d recommend not using “I haven’t wrapped your gift yet,” as an excuse. All it takes is one person insisting the wrapping doesn’t matter and you’ll be left frantically searching for an already-opened can of Moravian ginger spice cookies and a bow.

“Did you touch yourself today?”


“Good girl.” He slipped his hand up her skirt and pulled off her panties, grinning against her skin when she lifted her hips to help. “Spread your legs.” She hesitated, and then obeyed, hooking her legs on the outside of his. He spread his knees, forcing her to be wide open. The cabby couldn’t see shit because they were directly behind him, but he knew all too well what the thought of What if? could do. Little tremors shook Ridley’s body as he pulled her skirt up, baring her completely. “You were jealous.”

When she didn’t say anything, he squeezed her thigh. “Answer me.”

“Yes, okay. I was jealous. I didn’t like the way she looked at you.”

He wanted to crow in victory, but there were more important things to worry about now—like driving Ridley out of her mind with pleasure. “All he has to do is turn around, and he’ll see what I’m doing to you.” He circled her clit. “He’ll know that this pussy is mine to do with as I please, and he’ll be one jealous motherfucker because he might get a look but I’m the only one who touches you.” When her eyes drifted shut, he pulled tighter on her hair. “Watch the rearview mirror, baby. He knows what’s happening back here. He’s desperate for a peek.”


He reached up and yanked the shoulder of her dress down, baring her breast. She gasped as he pinched her nipple. “I didn’t give you permission to speak. If you forget the proper way to address me again, I’m going to fuck you right here in front of the cabbie. Do you understand?”

Her breath hissed out. “Yes, Sir.”

“Good.” He soothed her nipple and then fixed her dress.

Whatever he told her, he had no intention of sharing the show with anyone, let alone a cab driver. Her reaction, however, indicated that she’d love the idea of someone watching. He had a little exhibitionist on his hands. It was something he stored away for future use. He ignored the voice telling him that there would be no future use—only tonight.

As they wove through traffic toward his apartment, he played with her, never doing enough to make her come, but keeping up her desire until she was shaking and biting her lip. They turned onto his block, and he pulled down her dress to cover her. Though he was reasonably sure that she knew the score after what she’d said on the sidewalk, it paid to be explicitly clear sometimes. “If you come up to my place, I’m going to fuck you, Ridley. Is that what you want?”

She swallowed. “Yes, Sir.”

Review: Getting In The Spirit

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00028] Getting In The Spirit by Erin Nicholas

5 out of 5 Licks

Sapphire Falls, Christmas Novella

It’s Christmas time in Sapphire Falls!

At least one good thing has come from Levi Spencer’s car accident– it seems to have knocked some sense into him. He’s ready to leave his wild Vegas playboy ways behind and become a new man. And he knows just the place to do it…  his brother Joe’s new hometown. He’s never spent time in a place described as quaint or idyllic, and now he intends to revel in every charming, sweet thing he can find. Like the homegrown country girl his brother sets him up with for the Christmas formal. 

Kate Leggot wants just one great Christmas. After a childhood without Christmas at all and three failed attempts to find the seasonal magic on her own, she agrees to spend the holiday with her friend Phoebe in Sapphire Falls. The Christmas-crazy town is a far cry from San Francisco and Kate quickly finds herself drawn into everything from the snow to the hot cocoa. And, of course, the sweet country boy Phoebe has set her up with for the formal. Looks like she’s going to get everything she wanted– and more– under the tree this year.

A not-so-little mix-up, a hot kiss under the mistletoe and a candy cane or two later and December in Sapphire Falls has never been so hot.

This is a novella, about half the length of the novels in this series. Read only if you like fun, small town contemporary romances where they talk dirty and act even dirtier.

I want to live in Sapphire Falls!!!  *sigh*  Since I can’t live there I’m glad I can at least read all about it.  It’s Christmas in Sapphire Falls and the town is in full on Christmas cute mode.  The kissing booth has even been transformed into a hot coco stand-seriously how cute is that?!  Kate and Levi haven’t had the best experiences at Christmas so they are both determined to have better this year.  The mistaken identity is corrected fairly quickly but the sparks between them couldn’t be extinguished (not that they tried too hard though).  Levi may not be able to start a fire or cut down a tree but he manages to melt your heart with his effort and desire to give Kate the best Christmas ever.  I loved, loved, loved this book!  I never want this series to end.  The town and the people are the best.  The stories manage to be super sweet and freaking HOT at the same time.  And the things Kate and Levi do with candy canes should either be outlawed or practiced all year long!  ;)

Three Times Lucky Guest Author Kim Carmichael


Buy it from Amazon

The Power of Three

 Three has often been called a magic number.  We identify with the number three, we live in three dimensions, and it has even been said that when things come in three’s they are funnier. Of course, when writing a ménage story, it is the absolute minimum participants you can have to qualify for this unique genre.

The power of the number three is embedded in our everyday life, and in honor of the Three Times Lucky Release here is my top ten favorite things that come in threes.

Rock, paper, scissors – a silly, yet fun game that everyone can play.

The Little Pigs – Honestly because it was the first three I thought of and everyone knows that story.

Coins in Fountain – An amazing movie!

French Hens – Because by the time you get to three French hens in the song, you are almost done!

Three Ring Circus – Mostly because my life feels like that a lot of the time.

Triangles – Enough said.

Three Piece Suits – I just love a man in a three-piece suit.  Not every man can pull that off, but when he can, le swoon!

Colors of Gold in the Cartier Trinity Ring – Gold, white gold and rose gold.  Sigh.

My designer trinity – Hermes, Channel and Louis Vuitton – This is my own personal addition, but these are the three designers I love the most! Sigh again.

Trevini, Markov & Pell – My trio from “Made For Two” that appears in Three Times Lucky.  (You knew that had to be my number one!


So tell me, what is your favorite thing to come in threes for a chance to win an e-book of another one of my favorite ménages – Lauren, Jason & Russell from my novel Trifecta.


Also, I am looking to get scouted on Kindle Scout!

Nominations are always appreciated!



Excerpt From Made For Two:

She gave them a moment to take her in. Two sets of hands exploring her body, two mouths kissing her and her one body flooding with intense need. None of them could wait much longer. “I do see one problem.” Out of the corner of her eye she spied one of her daggers hanging on the wall and wrapped her fingers around the handle. In a sudden move she spun back toward them, keeping the weapon behind her.


“What might that be?” With glazed over eyes, Markov reached out for her.


“Both of you are falling way behind.” A smile across her face, she revealed the dagger, her desire only piquing when neither male moved back.


“Is this part of Mersennian foreplay?” Pell raised his eyebrows.


“You both know I’m more than Mersennian.” She pushed away from the wall and with exacting precision cut a slit up Pell’s shirt. “You have too many clothes on.”


“Holy hell.” He tore the shirt off and reached for the waist of his pants. “Is this better?”


“Keep going.” She turned her attention to Markov.


He held his shirt out.


“Never assume.” With a chuckle she aimed for the bulge in his pants and cut his belt in

Review: Falling or Flying

Falling or Flying Falling or Flying by R.G. Alexander

5 out of 5 Licks

Part of the Invitation to Eden series

Joely knows the island of Eden and its moods better than most. A pilot for its exclusive clientele and the eyes and ears of Eden’s reclusive Master, she’s finally found a place where she truly belongs. Though kink is as common as coconuts in Eden, she’s not about to risk her position—or her heart—by indulging her private fantasies with invited guests.

Austin Wright’s first invitation to the island was meant to mend his spirit after an accident that changed his life, but each time he’s returned, his desire for the pilot of his dreams has gone unfulfilled. Not this time. Austin’s carefully laid plan for learning her secrets and capturing her heart has already been set in motion. His friend Court’s arrival on Joely’s plane is unexpected…and so is everything that happens next.

Eden has a way of making plans—and routine flights—veer wildly off course, and when Joely and Austin find themselves marooned with the wicked Court and his good intentions, it’ll take a sexy shove, a leap of faith, and a little island magic to bring love home.

This is my favorite of all the Eden books I’ve read so far.  Joely has been pretty quiet in the ones I’ve read so far but I knew she had a secret kinky side.  It just took two men to bring it out of her-or put it in her whatever works for you.  Court really steals the show in this one.  He has some of the best one liners I’ve ever read.  For example: “I want a woman too busy screaming in pleasure to remember to call me Sir.”  Um hello where do I sign up for that?! My only complaint about this book is that I want more!  R.G. in your spare time (lol) I need you to write more of these three!  Court needs to publish a book of his photos for his mother and Austin needs to write a book based on the island.  And Joely needs to help more people find their fantasies (and more threesomes-definitely more of those!).  I’ll be siting right here waiting for more.  Just let me know when it’s done.
