Life can be frustrating, especially at this time of year with vampires, goblins
and wizards--both real and imaginary. Sometimes a girl's gotta have a little
fun. So sit back and relax with these hot October romances.
THE BID, Jax (Aphrodisia, October
2010, $14.00) As Jax, Jacquelyn Frank—New
York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers and Shadowdwellers
series—makes her Aphrodisia debut with a blisteringly hot erotic novel set in an
exotic paranormal world. Strapped and chained on the block, a masterpiece of
naked flesh and muscle turns slowly…the eyes of the crowd devour the sight of
Vejhon, whose platinum-white hair marks him as newly captured from a wild planet
on the outer edges of space. His cat-green eyes blaze with fury at the noble men
and women in a bidding frenzy—and stops on a man named Najir. This strikingly
handsome man who strangely resembles him cries out the winning bid on behalf of
the lady he serves. Hanna Drakoulous must and will have a matched pair of the
finest males in the galaxy. Shackled, Vejhon can only marvel at the mysterious
beauty with blue skin and shining eyes whom Najir clearly worships. But Vejhon
refuses to humble himself—until Hanna’s kiss strikes him like lightning. First
dominant, then sensually tender, she arouses him to explosive sexual passion
that goes beyond the limits of physical pleasure. What manner of mistress has
bought him and what does she want? Freedom is what he wants, but will she be
worth the price?
Edwards (Aphrodisia, October, $14.00) Bonnie Edwards—author of
Thigh High, Midnight Confessions, and
The Hard Stuff—brings her
trademark heat and sensuality to three interwoven romances revolving around the
O’Banion brothers, three sexy builders who are very good with their hands.
FIRE, Emma Holly
(Berkley, 10/05/2010, $7.99) Escaping a routine life, Beth joins an
archaeological dig with her long-time friend Charles. The desert is perfect for
adventurers—especially when it comes to exploring forbidden appetites like
Charles’s shameful desire for a demon. But as Charles and Beth are about to
learn, some demons find humans equally irresistible.
KADE, Cheyenne McCray (St.
Martin's Griffin, 10/26/2010, $14.99) After a bitter divorce, reporter Kelsey
Nichols has erected a border around her heart too strong for any man to cross.
She's not ready for a relationship of any kind with any man. But when Kelsey
meets Kade she can think of nothing but being in his powerful arms and in his
bed. Intelligence Agent Kade Owen is hot on the trail of a notorious smuggler
when the sensual blonde reporter comes into his life. Once he gets a hold of
Kelsey, nothing will stop Kade from winning her heart.
