Charlie is a passionate, sensually inspired art student, desperately seeking an escape from an abusive past that haunts her and a tragic accident that emptied her heart. Scarred and unable to love, her yearning for physical pleasure and contact leads her into a tantalizing, dangerous world of power and seduction. The anonymity of the deal offers security, the money provides financial freedom, and the madam’s authority is the mother figure she longs for.

But the thrill of the mansion and its arousing dominance quickly fades when she meets the renowned yet mysterious Cameron Hardy, whose intense, baby blue eyes send a nervous flutter through her core. He’s sexy, and not in a subtle way. Cameron stimulates her art, intellect and desires. Just as he begins to break through her emotional boundaries, Charlie discovers a devastating connection between her past and her scandalous work at the mansion, shattering everything she thought to be true.

Provocative, intoxicating and erotic, Seductive Shadows is the unforgettable tale of a young woman’s discovery as she learns to forgive, to love and be loved, and to find redemption amidst a memorable journey that will captivate your mind and stimulate your soul.

“Good evening,” he said. He slowly moved closer.

I took in all of him. Though he was dressed as a gentleman, there was something rugged about him; a man who didn’t use only his brain when he went to work, but his hands, too. His eyes moved from mine and landed on my body, causing everything below my neck to redden. Only a few seconds passed before I felt him. His thumb grazed my bottom lip, his skin cold from the glass he held in his palm. I licked my lips, tasting the sweetness he had left behind. The spark from that simple touch opened my pores.

I needed him to want me.

He pressed the rim of the glass against my lips, pouring a shot of the amber liquid into my mouth. I swallowed. It was exactly what I wanted, something stiff that would ease my flutters. It burned my throat, gliding down smoothly and without effort. It felt so good…and it tasted even better. His hand brushed against my jaw as he held the drink out in front of me. I met his eyes and waited, but he wouldn’t give me a second sip. He moved a few inches closer, and I leaned farther back into the pole. The liquid finally entered into my mouth, and my body responded to his power.

While I stood in silence waiting for his next move, I observed the finer details of his face. He took care of himself; his body attested to that. But his skin didn’t look older than forty. I pictured his square chin resting on the mattress, his blue eyes meeting my green ones, the light dusting of scruff that covered his cheeks tickling the inside of my thighs. My breast fitting perfectly in his palm, with his long, slender fingers trapping my nipple and squeezing it between his nails. I wanted to lick the stubble on the sides of his face. I wanted to nibble his large, soft lips.

“Call me Jay,” he said.

During one of our conversations, Victoria had told me not to use my real name when I was with a client, and to have the men call me Cee. Not that it mattered, but it made me assume that Victoria wasn’t really hers.

“What can I call you?” he asked.

This wasn’t about me, I reminded myself. I could fantasize all I wanted about Jay, but I was here to please him. And it wasn’t about what I should say; it was about what he would want to hear.

“You can call me anything you want,” I replied. “Tell me, Jay: who do you want me to be?”

The breath he exhaled trickled inside my collar and down my neck. “Tell me your name,” he said a little louder. There wasn’t any anger in his tone. Just desire.


He dipped his head, his lips stopping just above my earlobe. His fingers traced the skin below my jaw. I expected words to come out of his mouth, but instead it was a tiny moan. A breeze of cold air rushed against me as he moved over to the bed. He sat on the edge, unknotting his tie before resting his hands on the mattress.

“Come to me.”

I stepped past the pole and around the end of the bed. His commands and the way he expected to be obeyed enticed me. They weren’t cruel or threatening; his voice, his words, his whole persona was deliberate and inviting. The need from my other sexual partners had often been a turn off, but Jay’s tone was just the opposite.

“Slowly,” he said.

With my chin pointed down, hair falling over my cheeks, I looked up at him as though he were my master. If this was the role I needed to take tonight to impress Victoria and make her proud, I was ready to abide. Our eyes met, and his breath quickened. I bit my bottom lip and took a step forward. My toes danced over a broken slab of mirror, pausing for several seconds, and I took another. Landing just a foot from his lap, my fingers caressed the buttons of his shirt. When I got to the bottom, I started back up.

“Take it off,” he said, his eyes never leaving mine.

I pushed his top button through the hole.

“No,” he said quickly. “Yours.”

My fingers circled around the top buttons of my shirt, popping them through their holes. As I got lower I shimmied my shoulders out of the collar, and the shirt fell to my chest. With my breasts still hidden, I hesitated.

His mouth opened. “Drop it. Now.”

His impatience was sexy; his demands caused everything below my stomach to soften as the fluttering increased. His voice was as nerve-wracking as it was arousing.

I pulled the shirt open, rubbing the fabric over my nipples, making them even harder as they pushed through the thin cotton. I watched the shirt fall to the floor. It floated so slowly and gracefully in its descent. I kept my eyes lowered as I dipped my fingers into the waist of my panties, running the width of my stomach. 

“Now those.”

I pulled the waist as wide as the elastic would allow and circled the lace around my hips before I stepped out of them. I stood naked except for my stockings, my eyes still focused on the mirrored floor.

Welcome Samhain Publishing author, Elisabeth Roseland...

 Corporate Merger
by Elisabeth Roseland



Amy Connelly has gotten used to the taste of shoe leather. Every time she opens her mouth to talk to gorgeous co-worker Eric Lewis, she puts her foot right in it.
Tired of the painful sight of her turning into a hopeless motormouth or tongue-tied fool at Eric’s approach, Amy’s friends take steps to remedy the problem. Her thirtieth birthday present is three desensitization dates with Derrick Vaughn, an Ebony Nights escort and an Eric look-a-like.
It’s magic. Communicating with Derrick is easy, especially when it’s their bodies doing the talking. He’s even helped her rediscover the kinky side she’s repressed for so long.
Eric? That’s a different story. She’s failed miserably at two of Derrick’s three assignments for her—asking Eric to lunch and dinner—thanks to a meddling, flirty co-worker who’s suddenly vying for Eric’s attention. If shy, awkward Amy is to have a chance, she’ll have to kick it up a notch…or three.
Warning: This book contains an awkward motormouth heroine, a painfully shy hero, and a sexy male escort who knows how to set them on the course of true love.


“You are going to laugh, but I like ‘Arena’ from the Original Series.”

Amy stared at him, her bottle poised at her lips. “Not the Gorn episode.”

“Yes. The Gorn episode. Isn’t that terrible?”

“It is terrible. That’s like the cheesiest one.”

“I know. And the worst thing is, I can’t even tell you why I like that one.” Eric shook his head. “I think it’s the combination of the terrible costumes and the awful fight-scene music. Dun dun da-da-da-da—”

“—da-da-da-da—” Amy laughed as she sang with him. “And Kirk looking like he’s about to rip that giant rubber mask right off the guy. Terrible. Just terrible.” She could feel the relaxing effects of the beer beginning to overtake her, and with it came a touch of boldness. “Hey…” she placed her hand on his knee, “…thanks for saying yes to this. I’ve never…I’ve never really asked a guy out on a date before. So—”

“I’m glad you did.” Eric covered her hand with his own. Underneath her palm, his leg felt solid. She squeezed it firmly. There was very little give. Eric set his bottle down on the bar. “Amy…I…I really…” He began to lean toward her.

Kiss me please kiss me please kiss me please kiss m—

His lips approached hers slowly. She tentatively reached up and touched the side of his face, running her fingers along his jawline.


She closed her eyes and could feel the heat radiating from him. Her body shook in anticipation of the touch of his lips, the taste of his tongue.

 Kisskisskisskisskiss. Ye—

A phone rang.

The July Wilder Rose Showcase...

Tokyo Tease
Passion in the Orient...
All-American girl next door, Natalie, jumped at the chance to see the world when offered a job in exotic Japan. Reality, however, proves much harsher than her many dreams...until her co-worker--and the star of her every fantasy--turns up the heat. Kentaro steps behind her on their morning commute, turning the crowded train ride into a journey of sensuality. With every sway and turn, the sexy Asian god's touch tortures and teases, arousing her with the speed of the bullet train. But this is only the beginning. Kentaro unlocks a world of exotic pleasures surpassing Natalie's dreams.


Hosting her first booth at a national tattoo convention is nerve-racking enough for artist Senna Whitefeather. Then she confronts the smoking hot Native American with a firm body and piercing dark eyes who's been following her all day. Appreciation for art takes on a new meaning when a challenge to unveil their tattoos escalates into a passionate encounter in the back of her booth. But when the stranger's identity is revealed, will Senna's brazen "go-for-it" attitude backfire?


Charity Kendrick is in a slump--three boyfriends and not a single orgasm. She is determined to turn her love life and journalism career around when her editor makes her a tempting offer--go undercover aboard the Hedonna and uncover the truth about the Heartbreaker.

Scott Nolan is living every man's dream. As bartender aboard a cruise ship, he comes in contact with beautiful women nightly. His carefree life as the Hedonna Heartbreaker comes to a screeching halt the night Charity steps through the doors of his club. He hasn't seen his best friend in over a decade and that chubby girl has become a heart-stopping beauty. He is determined to be the one to make her fantasies a reality.

She Likes It Irish

Kristin DeMarco vows to protect her broken heart and swear off men until she finishes her degree and starts her career. Survival sex--a vibrator and a sizzling-hot roommate--eases urges that can't be ignored, until her craving for a man propels her from the arms of Mr. Wrong to the door of Mr. Right. Irishman Sean O'Neill forces her to consider what she really wants. And what she wants is him in her bed. Too bad he's not cooperating.

Sean is only in America for six months to complete his degree and an archeology field school. He's as serious about his education as he is about keeping his sex life casual. When Kristin knocks on his door asking for condoms, the encounter forces him to rethink that single-minded focus. He wants Kristin for more than one night, but their secrets may end the relationship before it begins.

Welcome erotic romance author, Vi Keeland...

 Hi Vi, I don't think we've met before so I'm very happy to host you on your ongoing tour as it gives me a chance to get to know more about you and your writing. Really hope you enjoy your time here! Let's get started with the questions...

       1)   When and why did you decide you wanted to be a published author?

Getting one of my stories published is something I always wanted to do, but I spent way too much time thinking about it and not enough time doing it!   Forty is only a few years away for me…I think I just decided it was time to go for it.   I remember reading my first review…I cried…I was so excited someone actually read it and liked what I wrote.  I think I was hooked from that moment on!

       2)   What is the best and worse thing you have learned from an editor/agent?

I have learned so much from my editor!   It’s like taking 8th grade English class all over again, except this time I pay attention!  The best advice was to get the story down on paper first, worry about editing later.  In the beginning, I was trying to punctuate and make proper sentences as I wrote…but it interrupted my writing flow.   I don’t really have any bad advice from my editor and I don’t have an agent.

     3)   Favourite author/s?

I love anything written by Kristen Ashley and Sylvia Day.  I’m also a lifelong Judy Blume fan….she got me hooked on reading as a young girl!

     4)   What is your typical day?

On the days I go into the office, I get up at 5:30 and get ready for work.  At about 6:30, I start getting my kids up for school (I have three, two girls and a boy).  I drop my youngest at 8:30 and hop on the subway for three stops to my office.  I work until 6, come home, have dinner, relax a bit and then try to get some reading or writing time in before bed.  But I’m lucky, I can work from home 2 days a week too, then everything is much more relaxed!

6)   Who would you cast to play your hero & heroine in a movie?

My cover model, Daniel, is actually an actor, so I’d have to cast him as Jack.  To me, he IS Jack!  For Syd, I’d cast Amanda Seyfried.

      7)   Did you plan this book? Or write it as it came?

A little of both!  I knew the outline of what I wanted to write, but I deviated from my original plot a bit too J.   Sienna also became a much more prominent character as I wrote.

     8)   What surprised you the most when you became a published?

The community of readers, writers and bloggers!  I feel like I found a second family with the community I’ve become a part of.  I’ve made so many good friends that I chat with daily, but have never actually met!  People from all over the world. 

     9)   Do you have a dedicated writing space? What does it look like?

I do most of my writing in a big old leather chair in my bedroom.  It’s from Restoration Hardware and gets better with age!  It has a matching foot-rest that is always filled with pads of notes and pictures.

 10)                   What’s next for you?

I hope to publish a book I just finished, Worth the Fight, on October 1st.  It’s pretty different from the first three I published.  Gone are the wealthy businessmen from my first three stories and now I’ve moved onto MMA fighters.  Big muscles and tattoos…yummy!  It’s also a bit different for me because I wrote it in the alternating POV of both characters.

Made For You
by Vi Keeland



Sequel to Belong to You

Jack and Syd spent a week in paradise.   It was only supposed to be a fling.  But life can be funny sometimes, and circumstances brought them back together again.   Together they seemed to have found their happy ever after.  But when Sydney is offered a chance at the career she has always wanted, she must leave Jack behind to follow her dreams.  Can their love survive long distance?  Sydney’s touring with a man every woman wants, but he only has eyes for Syd.   And an unexpected tragedy leaves Jack feeling remorseful.  Can the two find a way through to forever?

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was born and raised in New York. I've been told more than once that I have a New York accent. It is pronounced cawfee, not coffee, right? I am one of six children, and come from a happy, albeit dysfunctional, family of "steps, halves, ours, theirs and his" children. I have three children, two girls and a boy. My son is the oldest and is a godsend. The girls, well, they are tweens and make me drink too much wine on occasion.

I am a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night! I actually consider myself a romance author, but my books definitely have steam in them, so I guess I am technically a romance-erotica author. I am also a HUGE reader and love Sylvia Day, Kristen Ashely, and EL James.

After years of thinking about writing my own book, I finally took the leap in 2012. I published my first book, First Thing I See, in January 2013, and was thrilled at the overwhelming success! Belong to You was published on April 4, 2013, and climbed its way to number 9 in the Amazon Erotica Best Seller's list in its first five days! The sequel to Belong to You is due out on July 1st, 2013.

Welcome Decadent Publishing author...Melissa Kendall!

Curve My Appetite (1NS)
by Melissa Kendall
Erotic Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Release Date: March 15, 2013
Heat Level: Sizzling
Word Count: 9,000

Available at:

Sally Austens’ sexual experience is limited and unsatisfactory at best. Now, as she turns thirty, it looks like the relationship train has missed her stop. When a friend tells her about 1Night Stand and suggests it might just change her life, she’s skeptical but shoots for the stars when asking for her perfect date. Go big or go home, right?

Dean Martorino lives in the public eye. Surrounded on a daily basis by society’s idea of stunning beauty, he longs for a woman with curves he can get lost in. At the suggestion of his long-time friend and manager, Dean shares his secret with Madame Eve hoping she can find him a match to fill his arms and satisfy his desires.

Can Sally accept the beauty Dean sees in her long enough to curve his appetite or will they both go home hungry?

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.

For the umpteenth time, Dean checked his phone. Still no text. He sighed in frustration. Thirty minutes after they’d agreed to meet, and no sign of his date.

His misgivings about the 1Night Stand concept weren’t eased by the fact she hadn’t arrived yet. He longed for something different, but one-night stands were not his usual idea of fun. He preferred long-term relationships. Jerry, his best friend had assured him Madame Eve’s services were more love matches than sex.

He’d laughed, at first, finding the whole idea ridiculous. He doubted even the mystical Madame Eve could find his perfect woman. Jerry had laughed, too, but then he got serious and asked, “What do you have to lose?”

Dean’s regular fitness regime kept him in shape and looking good for thirty-five. The women he met were stick-thin, self-obsessed, and semi-plastic, typical of the industry he worked in. Most of them were pretty, and though he’d dated a few, they weren’t what he fantasized about. No, in his dreams, the ladies all had natural and much curvier figures.

Big, curvy women had always fascinated him. Because he lived his life in the public eye, he’d been reluctant to go after what he wanted. At his age, though, with his career on the downhill slide, he realized he didn’t care anymore. He’d had his time in the spotlight. He wanted to settle down and have a family. Hence, he’d decided to find someone who loved him, not his public persona. He’d spent too long denying his true identity.

A knock made his heart skip a beat. She’s here. After a quick check in the mirror, he steeled himself and opened the door.

His mouth went dry and all coherent thought fled. Even if he had the words to express how she blew him away, he didn’t think he could find his voice. He ogled the gorgeous, buxom brunette standing in the doorway. His admiration cut short, as her face paled.

“You’re—” She stopped talking mid-sentence, her eyes rolled back into her skull.

Reacting on instinct, he reached out and wrapped his hands around her waist, trying to catch her before she hit the ground. However, instead of stopping her from falling, he was pulled to the carpet, too, both of them crashing in a heap.

Women fainted around him all the time. It no longer freaked him out. It was, however, the first time he’d fallen to the floor with one. Her pulse thumped strongly under his fingers. Relief washed over him; she was okay. The ridiculousness of it all hit him and a deep belly laugh escaped his lips.

Even with the less than successful start to his date, the feel of her in his arms had parts of him standing to attention. His curiosity dictated he find out more. Madame Eve had made an excellent choice. She might have found the perfect woman after all.

About the Author:
Melissa is a 37 year-old stay at home mum and part-time Software Support Consultant. She lives in Perth Western Australia the most isolated capital city in the world.

Over the years as daily life pressures got in the way she lost the passion for it. After her son was born, she discovered online books and her interest in writing was rekindled. It has been a large part of her life ever since.

She writes a little bit of everything but contemporary erotic romance is her favourite genre. Check out the links below for details on her other works.

Welcome erotic romance author, Diana Baron...

Training Temptation (The Stable Series #1)
by Diana Baron
Erotic Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Self/Indie
Release Date: April 24, 2013
Heat Level: Sizzling
Word Count: 27,500

Available at:

Caught in a web of deceit, Caroline must run the race of her life to save her family home. Her reputation as the high society owner of the #1 stable for Ponygirls in the world is on the line. And, there’s only one man who can help her win.

Edward Hastings is steamy, passionate and dangerous. With molten brown eyes and a rock hard body, the notorious playboy could have any woman in the world, but he only wants her. The first time he’d seen Caroline dressed like a pony, he’d been enthralled. Now, nothing will keep him from her.

They strike a deal. He’ll train her if she sticks to his rules. But rules were made to be broken. The moment he slides the bit into her mouth, she knows she’s in trouble. As he ignites a fire in her body and her mind, will she make it through the week without losing her heart to him? Or will she be able to train temptation?

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations (including BDSM and pony play) and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.


Imitating a conspirator, he lowered his voice. “Let me train you.”

“No.” She paused. “No way. Absolutely not.”

He frowned. “What are you afraid of?”

“Nothing.” Everything.

“You know I’m the best race trainer in this competition.”

She bristled. “I’m the best. If I was going to run, I’d train myself.”

“You can’t push yourself the way a race pony needs to be pushed. You need a trainer.”

She considered what he said. He was right; no one in their right mind would force themselves to train as hard as a race pony trains without someone to push them. But if she agreed, her entire future would depend on him.

Everything about him screamed trust fund playboy. He never worked for a single minute in his entire life. What if he got sick of her after two days and ran off to find a shiny new toy? A Buffy, or Bunny, or Honey, or whatever ridiculous name his arm candy called themselves.

Or worse yet, what if she came to depend on him for more than just training?

 About the Author:
Diana began writing the moment she learned how to hold a pencil. By elementary school, she was writing and directing plays for kids in her afterschool program. Over the years, short stories piled up on her nightstand. At night, she could always be found holding a flashlight and a book under her blanket.

She studied writing and literature through high school and into the first two years of college. But then, her fascination with other cultures and religious practices took over. She has degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Comparative Religious Studies from San Jose State University and is published in non-fiction.

After college, her life took an unexpected turn. She's currently a project manager and technical spec writer for a Silicon Valley computer company by day and a daring novelist by night. When she's not tearing up the felt playing at the World Series of Poker, she's traveling to her favorite Caribbean islands.
