Need You Tonight
By: Roni Loren
Genre: Erotica
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

From foster kid to trophy wife, Tessa McAllen is about to reinvent herself all over again—and defy every insult her cheating ex-husband ever used against her: Selfish? She’s championing a charity. Stupid? She’s getting her degree.

Boring in bed?

Kade Vandergriff can help her with that one. When they encounter each other at a singles event held at one of his restaurants, Tessa blurts out that kink is for girls who try too hard, and Kade instantly wants to show this sassy stranger how thrilling a night under his command can be…but when he learns her name, the game changes for both of them.

In high school, Tessa was the popular girl who stuttering, awkward Kade fell for. But she chose another. Now, as she eagerly learns lesson after lesson, he’s going to make sure she never forgets him again.

The perfect place for a woman on the run to disappear…

Accused of a horrific murder she didn’t commit, former heiress Callie Ward has been a fugitive since she was sixteen—until she found the perfect hideout, Club Dominion. The only problem is she’s fallen for the club’s Master, Mitchell Thorpe, who keeps her at arm’s length. Little does she know that his reasons for not getting involved have everything to do with his wounded heart…and his consuming desire for her.

To live out her wildest fantasies…

Enter Sean Kirkpatrick, a Dom who’s recently come to Dominion and taken a pointed interest in Callie. Hoping to make Thorpe jealous, she submits to Sean one shuddering sigh at a time. It isn’t long before she realizes she’s falling for him too. But the tender lover who’s slowly seducing her body and earning her trust isn’t who he claims…

And to fall in love.

When emotions collide and truths are exposed, Sean is willing to risk all to keep Callie from slipping through his fingers. But he’s not the only man looking to stake a claim. Now Callie is torn between Sean and Thorpe, and though she’s unsure whom she can trust, she’ll have to surrender her body and soul to both—if she wants to elude a killer…

Ford Aston is getting the f*ck out of Denver. He does not give a shit about blizzards, getting his old-ass Bronco over the Rocky Mountains in one piece, or a girl knocking on his hotel door looking to be saved. Ford Aston is known for many things. Being an emotionless, messed up bastard, a freakishly smart social outcast, and a cold, domineering master who keeps “pets” instead of girlfriends. And after Rook broke his heart, he plans to keep it that way.

Ashleigh is getting the f*ck out of somewhere, but she’s not quite sure where she’s coming from, let alone where she’s going. Ashleigh is known for nothing, and that’s exactly what she’s got going for her. She’s broke, stranded in the mountains with a three month old baby, and Ford Aston is f*cking with her head. Big. Time. And she plans to f*ck with his right back.

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets – and human lives.

But the struggle isn’t over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there’s still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure — and re-education — looms larger than ever.

And last but not least… the Mr. got me a Christmas gift that ran a tad bit late and turned into more of a new years gift but I love it! It’s a laptop that turns into a tablet! I guess he got tired of all my complaining about not being able to read manga and graphic novels on my Kindle.

 

Everyone, meet Lenni!

I’ve been wanting a tablet for a while but my concern was, what if, on vacation, I realized that I didn’t write up a post that needed to go out. I’d hate to imagine typing up a post on a tablet. I don’t even own a smart phone! That’s right, I’m still rockin’ a flip phone. So I’m behind on all this technology. However, I wanted a table for reading manga/graphic novels and and easy way to check the internet when traveling w/o the Mr. and his laptop. I had no idea that this even existed. It’s the best of both worlds. I love that it even folds into a standing position so that I can watch tv/videos without even having to hold it. Okay I’m gonna stop gushing about Lenni. I love her, she’s amazing, that is all.

  10. Hi Lenni!

    Signed books are so precious! I wish I have deep pockets so I could just have every book I love signed by their respective author.

    • LoL The only books I’ve bought with autographs have been Mead’s. I didn’t know about her local bookstore until Bloodlines came out so that series is the only one of hers that I have signed.
