Lincoln Hudson has just been handed the easiest job in the world. Babysit the spoiled son of a conservative senator, keep him out of trouble, and receive a six-figure paycheck, a paycheck he desperately needs. Wyatt’s father claims he needs Linc’s firm hand and discipline. One look at him and Linc agrees. Wyatt needs discipline.

Being the closeted gay son of a family values senator has left Wyatt Edgeworth with a reckless streak and a love of partying that just cost him eight months of his life and might cost his father his re-election. So now he has a babysitter. A very sexy babysitter.

When Wyatt drunkenly tells Linc he’d make an excellent Daddy, they reach an understanding. Wyatt gets a Daddy and Linc gets a paycheck, then they go their separate ways. For this to work, discretion is key, but with a reporter dogging Wyatt’s every move, that might prove impossible.

Staying together was never an option, but with each passing day, their feelings only grow. Will they risk it all for what’s supposed to be a harmless fling?

Intoxicating is the first book in the Elite Protection Services Series and contains age-gap, Daddy-kink and BDSM elements complete with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

Warning: This book contains scenes which may trigger some people including, self-harm, suicide attempt, past and present physical abuse and implied past sexual violence.

Excerpt

He had a right to pout, he assured himself. His balls ached and his cock was hard enough to break a window yet some stupid part of him was still desperate to please his Daddy. If Linc wanted to punish him, Wyatt couldn’t stop him, but that didn’t mean he had to be happy about it.

He was the opposite of happy and it was his right to behave accordingly.

He side-stepped Linc, hitting him with the most frigid look he could muster. “Fine, then I’ll just go take a cold shower… Linc.”

Using Linc’s name was petty, but it gave him a small measure of satisfaction as he sauntered past. Linc caught him by the upper arm, his other hand swatting Wyatt’s backside twice. He bit his lip to keep from moaning, even as his cock leaked, betraying him. Linc spun him back around. “If you need to shower, you can shower with me so I can keep an eye on you. I won’t have you getting yourself off all alone in there.”

“I wouldn’t,” Wyatt fumed.

Linc snickered. “Oh, you would. Instead, I think you should get on your knees and blow me.”

Wyatt glowered at him. “Oh, do you?”

Linc smirked. “Mm hmm. Right now.”

Wyatt cocked his head to the side, lips pursed. “No.”

“Are you disobeying me again?” Linc questioned, threading a hand in Wyatt’s hair, forcing his head back.

Why did he like this so much?“I’m already being punished. What does it matter?”

Linc grinned, stepping into Wyatt’s space, pressing kisses into his throat and along his jaw. “Do you think I can’t make it worse? I could bend you over this bed and spank your bottom until its raw, jerk myself off while I tell you all the things I would’ve done to you if you’d just behaved, put your cock in a cage, make sure you don’t come again for a week, maybe more. Is that what you want? Me, using you for only my benefit? That doesn’t sound like much fun for you?”

Death’s plan for revenge is derailed by his lust for one of the Creator’s angels

Being second to Michael has never sat well with Allerio. Feeling slighted, he travels beyond the heavens, meeting a creature who informs him of his Father’s secrets. With curiosities niggling him, he challenges his god, seeking freedom from stringent rules. Though the prize might look wonderful on the surface, it comes with a heavy price the angel will bear for eternity.

Death’s banishment was only the beginning of his descent. Since then, he’s concocted a scheme to overthrow the highest being, proving him to be a liar. Although confident his plot will succeed, he convinces one of High’s top helpers to assist him. However, Death never intended for feelings of affection to consume him. Suddenly wrecking God’s perfection isn’t as important anymore.

Two gods join forces and become bonded in more ways than one. Can they overcome their emotions to achieve their ultimate goal?

Death’s Angel is the prequel story to Immortals, chronicling the very beginning of Lucifer’s ascent as the god of the third and fourth planes. This story involves male pregnancy and mating.

Warning: On page violence, extreme torture, and death. Look inside for further triggers.

Fivesome filthy perfection from the Merikans

TheirBounty-KAM-f-tag_900Their Bounty by K.A. Merikan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is pure Merikan – filthy in the best way, dirty and hot as a volcano, just a little bit twisted but with a core of solid steel romance at the centre.

Four men, each uniquely drawn with vibrant personalities and talents and a fifth, the anchor around which to secure their kinks and desires and the who drives the narrative forward.

I can’t make up my mind who I love best. Tank, the strong Daddy, taking care of his crew, or Boar, enthusiastic and sweet with a need to connect, fiery Pyro, hot-tempered and sexually aggressive, or Drake, sullen and hiding a painful secret.

Each of them brings something different for Clover and he shamelessly hoards all their desires and affections.

The suspense element is, as always with this writing duo, well planned and still brings a surprise even though it’s blindingly obvious once you know!

I am loving this new series.

A stunning return to the Unbreakable Bonds setting

Fracture (Unbreakable Bonds #6)Fracture by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There aren’t enough stars available to properly rate this book. It’s always a risk to step back into a beloved world which had wrapped up its initial story arc and left no loose ends.

But Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott have come up with a second story for Snow and Jude which is utterly gripping, and just as fast-paced as the original Shatter, which gave us their initial romance.

This time the focus is on Jude’s youngest brother who is the start point for an all-action adventure which sees Snow and Jude’s relationship tested to the max.

Everything about this book worked for me. Everything. Snow and Jude are beyond hot together, they’re bound together by love, they’re determined to be there for each other no matter what and this narrative pushes them to the limits.

And OMG the code words – this time picked by Jude. Once again these authors know when to bring a light touch to the darkness and Rowe and Noah’s antics give me life.

There’re also guest appearances from many of our favourite Ward Security staff members just to keep the action flowing and it made my heart skip as each one arrived on the page.

Absolutely loved it. Also not who I was expecting for Book Five in the Ward Security series so really looking forward to reading that one too!

Now, if Rowe and Noah happen to be next on the list for a revisit, well that would just make my year 🙂

Clever narrative winds up this excellent romantic suspense series

Rough Trade (Woodbury Boys #3)Rough Trade by Sidney Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly didn’t think this book would be able to comprehensively pull together all the suspense elements of the first two into a believable and cohesive ending.

But it really does, and not only that, it also brings a unique love story which never once follows the traditional path and yet still manages to be truly romantic and full of emotional growth.

It also manages to make me have feelings for two of the bad guys – or bad women in this instance – who were both as trapped in a situation out of their control as Ghost and Duncan were.

I wasn’t expecting things to go down like they did but there was some clever narrative play which ultimately drew out the most effective and truthful ending for all parties involved.

The romance itself is a quiet, unobtrusive one, it’s not hot and sexy, it’s built up of small things, of trust, of movie marathons and a desire to want someone else’s happiness to come first.

There couldn’t, imho, have been any other way for things to go given Ghost’s lifetime of experience with sex as a weapon and as an abuse, even four years later in the epilogue I think it was still fitting that the reader’s gaze remained external and not in the bed with them.

Truly a wonderful example in this genre and a fitting conclusion to the series as a whole.
