Romance Erotica Sensual

He scared me. He thrilled me. And after one touch, all I could think about was getting more...

Makayla never thought she'd set foot in an elite mixed-martial arts club. But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it's these guys. Then again, at her first sight of the club's owner she's the one feeling breathless.

The man they call Torment is all sleek muscle and restrained power. Whether it's in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when a soft touch is required and when to launch a full-on assault. He always knows just how far he can push. And he's about to tempt Makayla in ways she never imagined...

Re: Against The Ropes

I don't even want to think of some of my most embarrassing moments. Good for you making them work for you. For some reason I like reading romances with MMA as an aspect. It must be because it is something I would never do myself.

i have been wanting to read this book looks really good
Denise Smith 10:48am September 6, 2013)

I think that a little bit of humor helps to break up a story line a little bit, and your book should take the readers for quite a ride!! I, personally, can't wait to get my hands on your book, since I share your sense of humor, and would love to start my Fall reading off with a bang!! I love the cover, and am sure I'll love what's in-between the cover even more!! Thank you for coming here today, and sharing a bit of your humor with us today!!
Peggy Roberson 11:03am September 6, 2013)

A little humor always makes a story better and I can't wait to read this book. Thanks so much and I love the cover!!!!

Jolene Allcock 12:31pm September 6, 2013)

Oh this sounds like a book I would enjoy... a touch of humor can make the book and characters come to life...

Sarah, I really enjoy a book with a plot that brings out humor. It is a special additive that I, personally, enjoy and look forward to. It is so important to laugh and enjoy!
Keep writing!
Patricia (Pat) Pascale 2:48pm September 6, 2013)

I love when a book brings a bit of humor to the table. I
especially love snarky lead females with witty and sarcastic
comebacks. But the best is when a laugh comes unexpectedly
out of nowhere and has me laughing out loud.

Congrats on the book, and I can't wait to read it!
Lorie Economos 3:04pm September 6, 2013)

This book looks amazing. I can't wait to read it!!!!

Humor goes a long way and to incorporate it into a book adds flavor.
Mary Smith 3:10pm September 6, 2013)

Thanks everyone! Nice to see so many humorists out there! Hope you all have a great weekend!
Sarah Castille 4:58pm September 6, 2013)

I love humor in books. Sometimes when it is slipped in at just the right moment...priceless! This sounds like my kind of book. Thank you for the chance.
Melanie Backus 5:08pm September 6, 2013)

Against the Ropes sounds like a terrific story! *Swoon* I'm looking forward to reading it!
Chelsea Brooks 5:21pm September 6, 2013)

I love reading books with humor incorporated, which makes a book fun and enjoyable and often unexpected. This sounds like a fabulous book I'd love reading!!
Linda Luinstra 5:40pm September 6, 2013)

If you don't laugh, you cry. I always try to find the humor in any situation, but I REALLY hate to be embarrassed! Sometimes I can't even watch a movie because I know the hero or the heroine is going to be embarrassed! On the other hand, I've spent a LOT of time laughing!
Marcia Berbeza 6:24pm September 6, 2013)

Love reading romances with humor in them. Your book sounds like a great read.

Mary Preston 6:14am September 8, 2013)

Wonderful post. I find myself doing that. When I relate a weekend story to my
deep-water exercise group on Monday morning somehow it sounds so funny in the
retelling while at the time is was not in the least funny. How's that happen?
Thanks for the post and the giveaway. I've heard good things on the blogs
about your book :-) - Oh and I love humor in a book!
Lenna Hendershott 4:12pm September 8, 2013)

I love humor in books. I figure, if you can't laugh at things it's a sad life you're living.
