Blood Moons

I recommend as enjoyable! The heroine is a telepathically untrained librarian who accidentally bonds to the mind of a serial killer. She tries to get him caught, misses, and as no good deed goes unpunished, SHE goes to jail for the murder. Her bad-luck streak has a brief pause when she gets assigned to her new cell mate, a murderer from the military who’s become a human guinea pig, well, specifically a human-animal hybrid experiment. The animal part’s not a guinea pig, which incidentally are just adorable. As is her cell mate in a possessively protective way which terrifies everyone around them. Her naivety terrifies him in turn, but he works to teach her telepathy skills so she can have a chance at survival. He manages to keep it together for the most part until she gets insistent with how badly she wants him. He’s already obsessed, and her pushing releases the one thing he can’t protect her from…himself.

Favorite Quote:
She was mesmerized both by what she saw and by what he told her, and all she could come up with as a response was an inane, “I smell?”
Tristan’s mouth twitched with a small smile. He sent her a brief impression, a dizzying feeling, like getting drunk off fumes. It was disorienting, but at the same time, she knew exactly where to find the source—and she wanted to find it so badly that it hurt to keep still.

Falwell-Themed Stories

So now that a colorful aspect of Jerry Falwell Jr’s marriage is getting shared far and wide. It seemed to be time to link to descriptions of this kind of scenery. Remember Cohen describing what he saw as “It’s terrible”? WARNING: I DON’T RECOMMEND THIS STUFF FOR YOUNG ADULTS.

Sigh. So here it is: Loving Wives category, creampie eating

Okay, ready to clean out your brain after briefly scanning what evangelical leaders find to be the way to conduct themselves? Here. Read some “18 Degrees and Counting” (over 100+ pages are free in the sample).


And as my loyal fan pointed out: This is kind of a thing. Thanks!

Beneath A Trojan Moon

I recommend as enjoyable! The lone survivor of a xenocide hides out in plain sight on an intergalactic market planet. The problem: the new Marshal overseeing planetary security is sexually magnetic, driving her to distraction every time she sees him. And he’s a former Special Forces officer from Galactic Security, from whom she’s hiding. He’s been watching her, at first from irritation that she treated him differently, then later realizing she was fighting their attraction. When he’s attacked while protecting her, the heroine saves him, revealing her secret. Fortunately by then, it doesn’t matter who she is, just that she’s his.

Favorite Quote:
He arched a brow. “No flirtatious smile for me?”
She tucked a curl back behind her ear. “Something tells me it would be wasted on you.” He wasn’t the kind of man to flush and stammer because of a woman’s smile.
The corners of his mouth lifted for the briefest moment. “You might be surprised.”

I recommend as entertaining! Senator’s daughter, rebelling against the system, might be out of prison physically but not mentally. Concerned, Senator recruits two men from her past (who haven’t had the balls to mend their broken friendship with her) to assist her in exacting justice. She balks. Senator makes her choose: justice and former-friends-finally-ready-to-move-when-she’s-vulnerable or nothing. Thanks Dad.

I recommend as entertaining! Heroine with body issues, daddy issues, mommy issues, and surprise, surprise, self-esteem problems (a.k.a. easy target), becomes the focus of a beefcake veteran businessman…who happened upon her ignoring him at a bookstore…yeah. That’s right. But it’s not totally unfeasible, because he’s got his issues, too…control issues, and she’s going to be easy to control. Just high maintenance. Have I mentioned I can’t stand the term “fuck me” heels? “Fuck my ankles” heels is more like it. Anyways, he forgets their six month dating anniversary. You read that right…SIX. MONTH. DATING. High maintenance. She gets busted wearing ankle-twisters at a dinner with another man, and he decides it’s time to exert more control.

“And I will be more up-front about my thoughts and feelings,” Jared pledged. “Is this what you want…what you need?”

She gave him a tremulous smile and nodded.

“Then you’ve got it. And Pam?”

“Yes, Jared?” she responded breathlessly.

“If you ever pull a stunt like this again, I will paddle your ass so hard and so long, you won’t be able to sit down for a week.”

Music the story reminded me of:

Liberation’s Kiss

I recommend as entertaining! Overprotected heroine is saved (1) by a code-corrupted android (2) corrupting the code in the android sent to assassinate her. Cut off from his primary network by the corrupted-code, the assassin becomes the hero because the only signal he CAN detect anymore is the heroine’s, and keeping it, um her, live becomes his new purpose in…running? executing? existing? “living”? Eh, something…

So yeah, this story totally messes with your head.

Anyways, I dare you to find a woman that will not take a second look at a perfect man with integral devotion and dedicated protection. Only drawback: the 2nd assassin that shows up to reconnect perfect-man back to the network. He doesn’t look so appealing when rebooted and shooting at the heroine. Androids. Great while they work, but those bugs are not “features”.

Speaking of “features”, pretty much laughed through all their awkward romantic interactions.

Favorite Quote:
His wide hand slid across the small of her back and pressed her into his hard belly. Her heart began to pound. His thumb tilted up her chin and stroked the angle of her sensitive jaw, sending tingles to her lips. Yes. She parted her lips, melting into him, and her body opened like a flower to his life-sustaining sun.

He tilted his head. “Sorry, Cressida.”

Realization hit her. He wasn’t kissing her. He was inspecting her for injuries.

Scene that the story reminded me of..

Civilized Mating

I recommend as entertaining! Heroine has friend who is an idiot. Idiot calls for help. Heroine gives up any chance of being promoted to go help the idiot. On being rescued, idiot tells heroine that she didn’t really need a rescue and is “confused”. Reader gets denied seeing heroine throttle idiot and point out the patently obvious state of her idiocy. Where was I? Oh, yeah, heroine’s psychically trapped by a couple of beefcakes (of course, most powerful on the planet…whatever) and one of them treats her like shit. Ah, physical attraction turned emotional abuse. Run, heroine, run! She actually does, yay, but this being the story that it is, jackass gets to recover the relationship. Reader eye-rolls into next week. Sex is awkward. Funnily awkward.

Xaveht took her hand away and wiped it on her own belly, exposed by her cropped tank. “Now you will smell like me.”

Movie the heroine reminded me of (Martha)…

Defiance

I recommend as entertaining/enjoyable! Heroine who gets to discover the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished, gets kidnapped by an alien and his human partner bent on revenge. Everyone moves crosswise with each other, achieving varying levels of disaster, until the alien finally admits his partner’s correct: the heroine is their mate. Finally working as a team, with plenty of hot sex, they’re almost ready to take on the galactic slave trade. First, she’s got to save an alien kid and her mom.

“It was foolish to attack something you don’t know a thing about,” David told her.
“I could say the same for kidnapping me,” Jordan said. She gestured to the damage. “By the way, this is all your fault.”
“Our fault?” Laith roared.

Brawn

I recommend as entertaining! How do you get two characters together whose backgrounds and personalities are going to be a barrier to any romantic conclusion? Kidnap them and stick them in a cage together. Ta da! Two poor communicators end up spending 200 pages failing to communicate until everyone else around them intervenes to clean the mess up. Naturally, to make any sense, the sex is great.


Brawn by Laurann Dohner

Favorite quote:
He glanced down at her and arched an eyebrow as he carried her through the
house. “I’m aware of some of your laws. Possession is nine-tenths of it and I have you.”

Among Galactic Ruins

I recommend as awesome! Wealthy heiress-turned-archeologist, with a foundational fracture in her self-esteem, gets saddled with a retired assassin for protection on an expedition. Deliberately irritating each other as she chafes under his security and he dismisses her as “princess”, the expedition promises to set up a battle royale between the two of them. The problem is that her tendency to stick his face in his preconceptions and return jab-for-jab to his little digs isn’t what he’s used to. And, compared to his experiences prior, is downright endearing. With the hero’s increasing confidence in her expedition, the heroine doesn’t stand a chance…especially not after he accidentally comes across her in her non-regulation-expedition lingerie.

Favorite quote:
She poked her tongue out at him.

Something in Damon stretched very, very taut, threatening to snap. Lust and need were a hot rush in his body. “You poke that out again and I’ll find a better use for it.”

She stilled, her eyes widening. Then she poked her tongue out at him again.
