Blog Tour: Night Music by Margie Church

Contemporary Erotica
Ménage (3+ partners)

A quiet, lakeside vacation is just what Brielle needs
to decompress after her busy concert season. She
expects the weeks to pass uneventfully. Until she meets the men next door.

Tyler and Zeke are as adventurous and sexy as the Harleys they ride. The
passion they hear in Brielle's music draws them to her.

Convinced the hunks are gay, Brielle lets down her inhibitions. That turns out to
be the best decision she's made in a long time.

My Rating:

My Review:
This is a Novella and part of the Holy Hades series which I had never heard of but you can bet I will definitely be picking up more by Margie after reading this.

Margie manages to get so much packed into this novella. Two hot bikers with Dirty Mouths? CHECK! Schorching HOT sex scenes? CHECK!  Added bonus of some M/M Action? CHECK! 

Definitely a winner for me! Can't wait to read more from this series! 


Brielle had stopped at the local market to get enough supplies for a few days.

She had no intention of going to town unless there was a darn good reason. After

her clothing and other belongings were unpacked, she opened a bottle of wine—

one of several she’d bought—and contemplated the glorious evening sun.

The rumble of motorcycles disrupted her musings. She craned her neck to see

who the offenders were.

Two men on leather-bedecked hogs cruised down the neighboring driveway.

She watched from the seclusion of her covered porch as they got off and parked

their bikes. Leather chaps covered their jeans. Boots and black leather vests

made them look badass. She waited for them to remove their helmets and reveal

more of their features.

She wasn’t disappointed.

One of the broad-shouldered men had flaxen hair. The second man ran his

hands through his dark hair that reached his shoulders. Even from a distance,

she could tell they were in good physical shape, and probably in their late

twenties. A twinge of naughtiness plucked her libido. Her vacation was already

The bike-riding neighbors unpacked their saddlebags and carried their gear

into their cabin. The door shut softly behind them and returned the peace and

quiet they’d interrupted.

Brielle watched the sun dip lower, streaking the sky with brilliant red, orange,

and yellow against the clear blue backdrop. The deep sounds of a motoryacht’s

engines mixed with the haunting sounds from the loons.

Inspired, she refilled her wineglass, and then brought her cello to the three-

season porch. She moved her bow across the taut strings, warming up,

wondering what she should play. She sipped her wine while searching through

her extensive music collection. Her hand rested on Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in

D Minor. Did she dare? Could she play with even half the passion Mei Ju had the

Closing her eyes, Brielle focused on the sounds and sight of Mr. Ju on stage.

Will that ever be me?

She drew her bow back and forth on the strings to play the fiery interludes and

soulful chords. Brielle imagined herself in front of the orchestra, the way Ju had

been, and did her best to do justice to the piece he’d played so brilliantly.

As she played the last, low note, she noticed the two men standing on their

porch, watching her. Heat flared in her cheeks, whether from the exertion of

playing or the embarrassment of their witness, she didn’t know.

One man began clapping.

Not expecting that reaction, she chuckled.

“Play something else,” said the man with the long hair.

Thinking they were making fun of her, she closed her music and stood. “Funny

“No, really, play some more.”

She contemplated the request for a moment. “You’re not going to call the

The blond one laughed. “Oh, hell no. Come on. Play something hot and sexy.”

Bolstered by their enthusiasm, she wondered what she could play that might
fit the bill. “Just a minute.” A number of titles ran through her mind and she
dismissed them all. Ah, the perfect one.

over with her heart intact.

includes her.

But Brian isn’t the only one vying for Pandora’s attention. Someone else wants her, dead or

Blog Tour: Surrounded by Temptation by Mandy Harbin

Paranormal Erotica
Surrounded by Temptation
Woods Family Series Book 3

When Krista needs Ariel’s biochemical
expertise because her new boyfriend can turn
into a mountain lion, Ariel thinks her sister has
lost her mind. But the possibility of a major
discovery like this is too much of a temptation
to ignore. Create a drug to stop a shifter from
forcing a mating? Only if she got to test his
sexual limits herself.

Rob thinks Ariel is an angel in disguise, and he
immediately knows she’s the one for him. But
is he strong enough to resist his animal’s need
to claim her once the temptation begins?

WARNING: This book contains a shifter who must resist his feral need to mate
and a biochemist who is hell-bent on testing his sexual limits. You’ll never look at
science the same way again.

My Rating:


My Review:
Even from their first meeting you can tell the chemistry between these 2 is going to be explosive. I loved how it took a step away from the previous two in this series in the fact that the heroine seemed like the one on the PROWL. ; ) 

I really think this is a great story. These aren't the longest books, but they aren't short by any means either. I definitely recommend the entire series! 


When Krista opened the door and they stepped in to Rob’s cabin, Ariel kept her expression
even…with great difficulty. Rob was shirtless and bound to a wooden chair. His worn jeans
hung low and showed how cut he actually was. His legs were tied to the chair, too. God, his bare
feet even looked sexy. But what was the hottest thing about him was his gaze. The way his eyes
peered into her. Like they were already alone and he was ready to pounce.

Rob growled, showing fangs, and she gasped. She didn’t know they had fangs like that unless
they’d already shifted. Maybe she should’ve gotten some additional information from Krista and
Mikaela before walking into the lion’s den. Literally.

“Come,” Rob rasped. “Now.” His arms flexed within their bindings and Ariel went rigid,
wondering if they’d hold.

Toby growled next to him, his eyes focused solely on his brother.

“We should get started,” Josh said.

“I-I have the medication right here.” Ariel started to step forward, but Josh threw his hand up,
stopping her progression, and moved toward her, blocking her view from Rob.

And apparently Rob didn’t like that because a blood curdling roar came from his direction.

Krista squeaked and jumped next to her at the same time Josh stepped to the side, allowing Rob
to see his fill. Toby’s head snapped in Krista’s direction at her distress, then whipped toward
Rob. He crouched in front of his brother, a menacing growl slipping pass his lips. Ariel shivered.
For some reason the softer growl from Toby sounded more deadly and a hell of a lot more
terrifying than the loud roar Rob made.

Rob hissed at Toby and wiggled in his chair, struggling to get free.

Josh stepped up and took the syringe from Ariel. “I’ll do you. You stay here.”

When Ariel starting giving Josh the instructions, Rob’s gaze flew to her, snarling. She quickly
finished the steps Josh needed to administer the medication and watched as he approached Rob
from the side, making sure to not to block his view of Ariel.

She watched as Josh bent in front of Rob and blindly handed the needle over to Toby. When Josh
grabbed the hem of Rob’s jeans, Ariel swallowed. There was no turning back now. She watched
in rapt fascination as Josh unfastened Rob’s jeans and slowly slid the zipper down so he could
get to the injection site.

“Damn,” Ariel breathed when Rob’s rock hard erection sprang free. He was freaking huge!

Rob had been making low growls and hisses at his brother as he worked the closure on his jeans,
but when Ariel spoke, his attention snapped back to her. His growl got softer, broken. What
the… Is he purring?

“I think he likes that you find his, um, member impressive,” Krista whispered.

Toby looked at Krista and growled. “You shouldn’t be looking. You only look at me.”

Ariel watched as her sister fought a smile. But she turned to the side, giving her back to
them. “Better, sweetie?”

His next growl sounded more like a groan. “I love your ass.”

She wiggled it and the animalistic sound got louder, playful.

“Chill you two,” Mikaela said, then turned to Ariel, “Just like a couple of newlyweds.” She
shook her head but smiled. “I think that’s good, Josh.”

“Okay, kitten. I want you and the other ladies to stay over there until we’re sure he won’t break
free and the drugs are working.” Josh lifted his arm, needle poised for entry.

“Wait!” Ariel shrieked and quickly stepped forward. She needed to gather as much data as she
could. “Can you tell me how you feel?” she asked Rob softly.

“Why don’t you grab my dick and tell me how I feel?”


Rob roared. “That wasn’t a request. You will submit to me. You are mine.”

Without warning, Josh stabbed the needle into Rob’s hip. Rob yelped and hissed at his brother.

Ariel watched him as he struggled in his chair, trying to break free, growling and hissing at
everyone, at no one.

Then minutes later, his movements eased, his head falling back as he gasped in air, sweat
trickling down his temple. No one moved for what seemed like an eternity. Ariel just watched.

Rob slowly moved his head, his eyes seeking her. She held her breath as he found her, eager to
hear him now that he’d received his first dose.

“I-I think I’m okay.”

“Do you feel like you need to mate with her?” Josh asked.

Rob frowned. “I believe I have control of myself. My lion.”

Ariel stepped closer and Toby tensed beside Rob.

“Can you tell me how you feel now?”

Rob chuckled. “I guess I can’t give you the same answer as before, huh?”

Ariel laughed nervously. He seemed relaxed. He wasn’t growling or hissing or fighting his
restraints. She quickly scanned his body. Mostly relaxed. His penis was still fully erect. She
turned to Josh. “Take his vital signs. Let’s make sure he’s not about to have a heart attack before
I continue.” She dug into her bag, pulling out a swab kit. “And here, take this and swab the
inside of his cheek while you’re at it.”

Josh worked quickly as Ariel watched. The three brothers seemed to be staring at each other
intently. Then she saw an infinitesimal shake of Rob’s head.

“They’re speaking telepathically.”

Ariel nodded. A few weeks ago she was knee deep in compost and now she was about to be on
her knees... um, yeah. She knew. Her nerves were back in full force now that Rob seemed to be
doing well under the medication.

“This is amazing!” Josh said as he clapped Rob on the back. “You seem healthy as a horse. I
can’t believe you’re not trying to fight to get to her anymore.”

“Let’s not do a victory dance yet,” Ariel warned. “This is all part of the process.”

“Right, of course,” Josh said, grinning. He looked at Rob and chuckled. Then he looked at his
mate. “I think we can go.”

“C’mon, Krista,” Mikaela said. “We need to get Jack medicated, too.”

Toby watched Rob, eyes narrowing. “You’re sure you’re in control? If you hurt one hair on her
head, I will make you bleed. Understood?”

Rob nodded.

Toby straightened and walked toward Krista. “I can stay. Whatever she’s going to do, I can
watch from the other side of the room to make sure he doesn’t do anything to hurt her. She’s
very tiny and he’s incredibly strong.”

Ariel’s face got really hot all of the sudden. No way in hell did she want a witness to this next
part. She glanced at Rob, trying to think of something quickly to say that’d keep her from having
an audience.

Rob’s head cocked to the side as he watched her. Without looking away, he said, “That won’t be
necessary, bro.”

Toby made a frustrated sound at the back of his throat. His eyes on his mate. “It’s your call,

Krista looked at Ariel. Ariel hoped the pleading in her eyes was working.

“Let’s go, sweetie, and leave her to her work.”

Ariel sighed, relieved.

Toby’s shoulders relaxed as he wound his arm around his mate. “Okay.”

“You will let us know the minute you need something, anything. Right?” Krista gave Ariel a
stern look, and Ariel nodded.

“Good luck,” Mikaela said, a small smile playing at her lips as she and Josh left. Krista and Toby
left right behind them. Her sister looked one last time over her shoulder before shutting the door.

Ariel was now alone with Rob. The relieved feeling from moments ago now gone. There really
was no backing out. The compound had worked. She’d seen it with her own eyes. He was virile
and determined to have her one minute then lucid and calm the next. Still sexy has hell though.
God, she needed to let that thought go. Rob was hot, not doubt about that, but she was here
to do a job. A job she was beginning to wonder if she could keep herself detached in order to

Just do it.

She walked toward Rob. He watched her. Eyes not animalistic. Teeth not fangs. Just watched
like someone who was curious about what movie was showing at the theater. But as she got
closer, she noticed the muscles in his forearms corded. There seemed to be more lurking behind
the surface than his calm curiosity.

“Um, okay.” Her voice cracked, so she took a steadying breath. “This is a bit unorthodox—“

“Compared to what? The family of werewolves who live in Dallas?” Ariel gasp and he
chuckled. “Kidding, angel.”

She laughed nervously, realizing that part of her nerves was due to how attractive this man was.
This would be so much easier if he were hideous, like a mangy old alley cat, missing an eye and
covered in bald patches.

“Right, well, unorthodox is subjective in this sense.” She took a few steps closer. Now he had to
tilt his head up to look at her. “What I mean is the way I’m going to test the effectiveness of this
drug and your endurance to it isn’t what I’d call standard protocol.”

“I’ll do whatever you want.”

Ariel cleared her throat and shifted her weight to her other leg, stalling. Here goes nothing. She
stepped right up into his personal space. “Do you find me attractive?”

A small growl rumbled in his chest, but he didn’t let it out. “Incredibly. You’re the sexiest
woman I’ve ever seen, and animal or not, I would love nothing more than to be buried deep
inside you.”

Good. If only his animal side wanted her, then she wasn’t sure how well this testing method
would work. She smiled at him, her tongue slipping out to wet her lips. Rob watched as she
traced her upper lip, and he moaned softly.

“I’m going to tease you, Rob. You’ll be surrounded by temptation greater than any you’ve ever
experienced. I’m going to drive you so insane with want that you’ll be begging me for it.”

Blog Tour: Menage Bound by Sacha Illyvich

Siddella is an overworked corporate executive with
a simple fantasy: give up control to a skilled man.
Better if there are two men.

Chase and Jason want someone to accept their relationship and sell to find a
willing third partner, a woman who can fit right into their world of kink, bondage
and sensual pleasure.

Only through madame Eve these three well meet but are they Menage Bound?

My Rating:

My Review:
This is just a novella and a quick and steamy short story really. Everything happens over the course of one night so it's hard to really have much character development. I dont feel we got enough out of the characters.

This story dishes out some very hot scenes with minimal BDSM but a great menage situation with Chase and Jason being the actual couple bringing in Sidella. I really thing this story could have benefited from being a full length novel. 


“Something the matter, Siddella? You can back out at any time.”

The tenderness came from Chase.

Back out? Hell no! Her body thrummed with so much sexual energy she could

probably power the Vegas Strip for at least a week. She offered an innocent

smile. “I’m good. Let’s do this.” Batting her eyelashes, she cocked her head to

the side.

Jason smirked. “Do you want a safe word?”

The smart move would be to say yes. Somehow, she thought it wouldn’t be

needed. But—

“Unlike my partner, I’m not asking. I’m giving you one. Wine bottle. If things get

too heavy, you simply say wine bottle.” Chase didn’t look back at her.

His air of cool made her knees weak. “Wine bottle. Okay.” At least they were

thinking of her safety. Yeah, they possessed the traits of true dominant males

who valued her existence enough to give her a safe word. She smiled at the


The elevator dinged. Siddella started forward, but fingers gripping her shoulder

stopped her. She looked back at Jason.

His eyes narrowed.

She let out a sigh. “Please, after you.”

Jason stepped into the elevator, followed by Chase. Then they turned and,

with the slightest of movements, acknowledged Siddella, giving her permission to


The material of her shirt began irritating her already hard nipples. Anticipation

drove her wild. What would these men do to her?

What would start things off?

A few more moments would pass before she found out.

Two minutes later, the elevator reached the penthouse suite.

Doors opened at a snail’s pace.

Jason and Chase stepped forward, turned to face each other. Then they

looked at Siddella and each extended an arm. Chase blinked. “Last chance

before you step into the den of iniquity. You may always trust that we’ll keep you

safe. If you refuse, we part ways now. No harm, no foul.”

“So,” Jason set a hand on his hip, “will you come with us?”
