About Me

My photo
I love romance and writing it is one of my greatest pleasures. Along with writing romance, I love sitting back and talking with authors that love romance just as much as I do. Since I've been reading romance since I was sixteen years old I am a book lover that still reads lots of books in a month. So, weekly I will also post my book picks. They may be picks that are new releases or maybe a favorite book of mine. On this blog you will see books featured by ALL romance genres.

New Release: Holiday Fantasy by Yvette Hines

Yvette Hines
Interracial BDSM Menage (M/F/M)

Alesha Crenshaw's Christmas takes a sensual turn when she’s invited to her friend’s house for a holiday munch and literally runs into Mike and Josh, her twin brothers’ friends. If seeing these two sexy men after ten years is not enough to topple her over, than discovering the event isn’t what she thought, definitely is. Instead of nibbling on holiday treats and singing silly carols, people are talking about the best way to spank a sub. She had to have stepped into a rabbit hole to even be entertaining the idea of being commanded and restrained by Mike and Josh.

When Mike and Josh discover that their friends’ gawky and smart little sister has grown up to be a gorgeous and captivating woman, they both desire her submission. They may share a house and business, but in the past, Mike and Josh have both kept their own partners. However, neither one of them are willing to step away from Alesha and her wide-eyed curiosity. The night goes from chilly to blazing when she agrees to go home with them.

Her brothers’ unexpected arrival turns out to be a snowstorm of reality that blankets her morning. After experiencing a night of passion and submission like she has never known can Alesha chose between Mike and Josh or will she have to walk away from them both?

AAD Bookie Awards are open...

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that the AAD Bookie Awards polls are open now. I was surprised to know that I was nominated for not one but three categories. I'm not completely sure when, where or how the nominations happened by the readers, but thank you for the nomination.

I have added the link in the message so you all can go vote. Even if you don't plan to attend the Author's After Dark Romance Convention next year (which was GREAT). You can still vote. It is a vote of readers and authors, everywhere. After you select your choice in all the categories in each poll you have to click done. If it does not route you back to the front page, then you will have to select the link again, then go to the next poll. Sometimes it routed by to the front page and most times it didn't. :) There are five separate polls, I am in three of those five. Also, after you click a bubble, scroll down because if you click even the side screen with your mouse it could change your selection. Of course, I would appreciate your vote. Thank you.

I am in 3 separate polls:

#4: 2010 BDSM Short of the Year
Trusting St. Nick by Yvette Hines

POLL # 2
#6: 2010 Erotic Short Story of the Year
Making the Man by Yvette Hines

#9 Reader Voted Star of Tomorrow

Thanks for everything this year!

I Grabbed the Bronze Medal...

Hello Everyone,

As you all may know by now, I captured the bronze medal spot in the All Romance eBooks contest. Yup, I did, with all of your help. You should be proud, I am. I feel really great about it. I met a lot of awesome readers and other authors and it was worth all the sleepless nights over the month. Congrats to Victoria Blisse who took first and Selena Kitt who snatched up second place. The contest had so many tremendous writers that I now have to add to my TBR list.

If you were one of the many readers who e-mailed me for a copy of On the Prowl the second story after Secured Heart in the Timberon Cat Series, then you don't want to miss out on your chance to get Rescued Mate, story three of the series....free. That's right I said free. For a temporary time, until Friday, I will be giving the third story free. After this week it will go on sale at ARe through my Tease publisher. So, how do you get it if you were one of the readers that contacted me with your vote last week? Simple, going my SASSE Sheets newsletter group. When you join, I will send you the story, Rescued Mate. You can't get anymore simpler than that, now can you?

ARe is also putting all the 32 shorts from the contest into themed "Just One Bite" anthologies that will be free downloads on the site. I will be in the second anthology, here is the cover. I believe they all be out the week of Thanksgiving.

Paranormal Erotica

Preston has spent years trying to stay away from Tresa. She was a stubborn, wild and impetus beauty that turned his world inside out. However, she was his mate and he knew it whether he liked it or not. Tresa always managed to get herself into a fix. This time she is at her sister’s wedding weekend and finding it impossible not to embarrass her sister in anyway, especially with an infuriating dominate male cat-shifter always in her space. The mansion style Amofeli’s pride lodge is not big enough the two of them to stay away from each other. When things go from furry to passionate neither of them can resist their desires.

I recently entered the ARe's Just One Bite Contest ! Out of hundreds, I was notified that my story Secured Heart (by Yvette Hines) was one of the 32 finalist!

Exciting news I know. I feel like I am a college basketball star. LOL! The only difference is it's not my skill alone that could allow me to win $1,000. I need you. Each and every one of you to help me by voting. There will be several rounds and I can only advance to each round by having enough votes to keep me in the competition. All of the stories will be loaded on the Just One Bite Contest page of All Romance ebooks. This contest will run the month of October, so I will send you reminder e-mails often. Those who know me, know I hate to clog up readers and friends e-mails with repeated messages. However, I hope you all forgive me during the month of October. This also means that just because you, family, friends, pet parrots vote once for my story (Secured Heart ), if and when I make it to the next round you will need to and be able to vote again. That's how this works.

Voting begins October 1st at http://www.allromanceebooks.com/contest.html

Secured Heart

That's especially true for Kal, her friend, who was supposed to be there years ago when she needed him. Kal may have let Lana walk out of his life before, but this time he plans to claim his mate before the night is done.

Finally Awake!


Let me tell you how much fun I had this past weekend in NJ at the Authors After Dark conference. LOTS! It was one of the BEST conferences I've ever attended. The hotel, food and set up was outstanding. It was not only the most inexpensive conference I've attended, but they provided more things than larger ones. Like buffet style meals and personal up close time with big name authors. Everyone was made to feel welcomed from the moment of arrival whether you were a reader or author. Oh, my goodness, so much stuff was given away in baskets and door prizes. I lost track of how many Nooks people won. The gift baskets were loaded with incredible things. If you did not attend this year, than you need to MARK YOUR CALENDER for next year. It will be in Philly. I drove from NC to NJ and it was well worth it. For all who attended the IR/MC panel thank you, it was great to hear from readers about what they want and where they'd like to see the publishing business head with the MC books. Also, those who came to the Golden Girls of Romance Cheesecake mingle we appreciate it. That was so much fun and i hope you got to know Denise Jeffries, Leigh Ellwood, Bridget Midway and me a little better.

I also wanted to tell you all that Internet Rebound will be released 15 October. I will post more about it later. Also, don't forget about the Holiday Fantasy contest. Join my newsletter and get your submissions in before 30 September.

Just Released!

Book two in the American Satyr Series by Stella and Audra Price, To Collar and Keep!

A surrender to the unknown has never been sexier.

Olanis, the summer holiday is upon the Satyr clans once more and it is the time for Harlequin, prince of the Rummer clan, to claim his first and only female, the Grecian Satyr princess Arabella, sight unseen.
Unsure of what kind of woman his clan had brokered for him, he is both interested in the woman that would wear his collar, and nervous that she won’t meet his standards. His female has to rival him in all things, and his hopes of that coming true are slim and none.

Arabella craves two things, finishing her education, and being claimed by her Satyr. An anomaly in the Satyr world, Arabella was afforded opportunities other princesses weren’t. Now, in a foreign land she is given over to the Prince she was promised to, and she couldn’t be more nervous. What's a girl to do when you’re being gifted to a man you have never seen?

Harley is a commodity to the Rummer clan, one that his father plans to exploit regardless of his son’s wishes. When he gives Harley an ultimatum, Harley and Bella have two choices-agree to the terms or rebel.

When sparks fly and new alliances are forged in the Satyr ranks, both Harley and Bella have to decide what it is they want and what kind of future they wish to have. Only together will they succeed, if they can suffer the slings and arrows.

WARNING: This book contains a Satyr prince with unconventional ideas about his princess, a princess with a mind to rival Hawkings, a feral Satyr with a hidden agenda, F/F scenes, polyamory and lots of hot sex.

Naughty Sexy Satyrs! And theres a Contest too! Wanna a Satyr goodie pack? Check Stella and Audra’s bloggy for details!


Of Crimson and Collars is an extremely erotic and playful story that was a delight to read. I predict that I will be re-reading this one soon and believe you will be too. I will be waiting, impatiently, for my next visit with the American Satyrs. ~ Joyfully Reviewed

A Reviewer Top Pick! Stella and Audra Price work together to bring us a stunning story of domination, submission, demons, satyrs, water nymphs, trickery and lust...I would definitely read anything else they write as this was a most enjoyable read. ~Night Owl Reviews

They have created an erotic world of d/s which does not humiliate, a world where the innocence of the submissive is an engaging power. If you enjoy a book packed full of erotica then this is the book for you. I enjoyed it so much I went back and bought 3 more of there books from a different series. ~Loose Knickers and Window Lickers

This is a book I loved reading and didnt want it to finish so soon. This Satyr world is one I’m going to enjoy getting to know. ~Ramblings of a Book Bitch

Twolips Review of Ho, Ho, Ho and a Dom

Title: Ho, Ho, Ho and a Dom
Author: Yvette Hines
Publisher: Tease Publishing
Genre: BDSM/IR
Publication date: December 2009
ISBN: 978-1-60767-086-5
Pages: 38
Series: N/A
Reviewer: Victoria
Rating: 5

Thinking she’ll surprise her boyfriend Milton after a long business trip, Kara is shocked beyond belief when she enters his condo. Fleeing the scene, Kara turns to her long time friend Jon for comfort. How will Jon react when Kara suggests she accompany him as his submissive at a holiday soirĂ©e?
As soon as I finished Yvette Hines’ Ho, Ho, Ho and a Dom, I couldn’t help but wonder how I could get Santa to put a Dom such as Jon under my tree! Kara has looked to Jon as her defender ever since he protected her from bullies in grammar school. She’s known for some time of Jon’s status within the Dominant/submissive community and throwing caution to the wind, reveals her vulnerability reaching out to him. She hopes her best friend will share his hidden talents.
You have to admire a woman like Kara, digging deep within herself, acquiescing control to such a dominant man. Once Jon gets over his initial misgivings about Kara’s sincerity, this Dom wastes no time going after he wants. Jon gives Kara a holiday to remember as he takes her on an erotic voyage, pleasuring her in private and public displays, allowing her submissive soul to take flight. If you enjoy BDSM stories that will leave you delightfully squirming in your seat, wishing you were Kara, ask Santa to stuff Ms. Hines’ Ho, Ho, Ho and a Dom into your stocking today!
