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.

Yvette Hines is a finalist for All Romance eBook Contest!!!

Hello Everyone,

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

PLEASE NOTE: That this page will show an old contest as a placeholder until voting opens, then it will be changed to the voting page at Midnight Mountain Time (GMT-6). 1 Oct 2010.

Message from All Romance eBooks. "All that is required for someone to vote is that they log into their existing ARe accounts, or open one if they don't already have one. It is free and easy to sign up for an ARE user account. They can vote once for each bracket matchup. And remember, if you advance forward from round one, they can vote for you again in round two, and round three, etc..."

I, Yvette Hines, thank you so very much for all of your support. Below I have loaded the blurb about the story (Secured Heart ).

Secured Heart
by Yvette Hines
Paranormal Interracial Erotica

When an unexpected woman from Kal's past enters a high profile party his team is guarding it may jeopardize the growing success of his business. Lana is not just any woman. She's the one that got away. Lana doesn't have time to deal with a jealous and prideful Amofeli male, right now. 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.

Keepin' It S.A.S.S.E!

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
