Summer Seduction Blog Hop and Giveaway

I like to spend my summer days relaxing by the pool with a sexy, steamy book and I can tell you, I've read some good ones this year. Although I write mostly kink, I read anything and everything. What can I say? I like variety. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite summer reads.

If you haven't read the Alpha and Omega series by Aline Hunter, you are missing out. Ms. Hunter's heroes are hot and possessive, her heroines are sassy and smart and her plots are twisty and complicated. Needless to say, I adore this series. 

Ballet and dominance, what's not to like? No one writes kink quite like Annabel Joseph. I love the way she crafts flawed, realistic characters. This story is tender and poignant with enough edge to satisfy my kinky heart.  

I'm so glad I discovered this series over the summer. It's sexy and fun. The men are hot, the women feisty and world-building is so clever.  I love that Lolita Lopez wove bdsm into the alien culture. It's very reminiscent of the books I read years ago when I first got into erotic romance.

So now that I've shared a few of my favorite summer reads with you, I'd like you to share with me. To enter my International contest and win a $10 Amazon GC, all you have to do is comment here at my blog and tell me your favorite reads from this summer. It can be anything, any genre, whatever grabbed you and left you breathless or smiling or whatever. 

After you're done here, check out the rest of the Summer Seduction Blog Hop hosted by Silken Sheets & Seduction. The list of authors participating is wonderful and varied. They are giving away a digital book bundle that includes my latest release A Firm Hand. To enter the big Blog Hop Giveaway, use the Rafflecopter form below.
