Utterly Sluttily (A funny erotic romance novel)

by L.J. Dee

A HOT new release in Kindle books

Everything happens for a reason.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.


At least that’s what I thought as I boarded the plane – miserable, humiliated and absolutely furious. I’d always done what was expected of me, followed the rules and been a good girl. School, work, the apartment, the almost-husband and where had it got me?

Here…a place where no sane individual would want to dwell.

I’d heard every cliché in those last few hours and I wasn’t about to become a walking one. Lao-Tzu once said that â??a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’ and this was my journey. According to the screen on the back of the seat it was 4255 miles and it started with a complimentary eye mask and two miniature bottles of airline house white, but the principal was the same.

It was simple. I had two options. Cry into my â??something old’; a Victorian lace handkerchief that had belonged to my grandmother, or start something new. So with the theme from Rocky playing in my head, I drew on the wisdom of that old Chinese philosopher and decided on the latter.

At that precise moment I had no idea just what a journey of self discovery it would turn out to be, or one that I’d embark on and embrace quite so…utterly sluttily.

Looking back now, they’d been right after all.

Everything happens for a reason.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I added the last one later. It’s good to be bad.

When Daisy Delaney is dumped at the altar, she has no idea just how far reaching the consequences of her subsequent meltdown will be. Hot-footing it on her honeymoon to escape the humiliation and the horrors unfolding on You Tube, Daisy decides to reclaim her life and re-write the rules for jilted brides everywhere.

In a resort of sun, sea, sand, solid abs and strawberry daiquiri, she soon realises that when she sheds her â??good girl’ tag and decides to behave utterly sluttily that just about anything can happen.

Through a series of steamy encounters and sexual firsts, Daisy is thrust into a whirlwind journey of recovery and self discovery, until a beautiful stranger offers her lessons in liberation that she’ll never forget.

â??Utterly Sluttily’ is a contemporary erotic romance novel containing graphic descriptions of sex and profanity and is recommended for adult readers.

Life’s A Cappella

by Yessi Smith

I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.

My life didn’t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.

My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.

Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on.

…and desire…

Dubbed “the Giantess” because of her unfortunate height, Charlie Stanton finds the London season far less glamorous than she had thought it would be – not the least because she is consigned a place among the wallflowers. But then she becomes acquainted with the very dashing Lord Chanderley, whose life is overshadowed by a terrible tragedy in his past. Ever ready to help others, Charlie is determined to rid him of his Sad Melancholia – even if it means taking on wild boars and highwaymen. However, the biggest challenge might be the elusive viscount himself and his belief that he is beyond all redemption.

Ava raised her hand to get the bartenders attention when she was interrupted. “Excuse me is this seat taken?” Ava turned and the sight of Sexy Mysterious standing next to her causing her mouth to drop.

Promptly closing her mouth, Ava replied with a simple “No.” when she really wanted to say I don’t give a damn if it was, sit yo sexy a** down! But that would have been too forward and she was not in the mood for rejection on her birthday of all days. Sexy Mysterious slid into the chair backed bar stool. Raising his hand, the bartender promptly made her way over to serve all smiles. Ava was rolling her eyes before she could catch herself, but from the smirk on Sexy Mysterious’ full luscious lips, he had not missed it.

“What can I get you handsome?” the b**** asked while batting her fake eyelashes at him. Where was she a minute ago when I was trying to get a drink? Ava wondered sarcastically.

“Yes I’d like Hendricks on the rocks and for the ladyâ?¦.?” He trailed off waiting for Ava to place her order.

“I’ll take a Washington apple.” The bartender didn’t look as bright as she was a moment ago as she worked on making their drinks. Ava turned to her newfound bar buddy and thanked him for her drink.

“My pleasure,” he responded raising his glass to his lips and taking a nice slow sip. What Ava wouldn’t give to know what it would feel like to be that glass and him taking a nice slow sip of her p**** juices? Where the hell had that thought come from? Had she known she was going to be spending her birthday evening at a strip club, she probably would have dusted B.O.B off and relieved some clearly much needed stress. Ava had to adjust herself to alleviate some of the tension that was gathering in her clit region. If she didn’t know any better she would swear that Sexy Mysterious knew he was causing her sexual discomfort. He was far from Ava’s normal type, well the normal type that would catch her eye or approach her for that matter. He was, he was, shit he was f****** beautiful!

He was olive toned as if he was mixed with something besides European. Maybe he was Italian? His hair was cut low on the sides and in the back. Longer on top but because of the texture, it had a deep curl going. Sexy Mysterious’ sideburns were cut low to his face and went down to connect with his full goatee. He had no problem connecting the dots like some men did when it came to the sideburns and goatee. It took Enzo three years before he was able to stop using a pencil to “blend” in the weak spots where his goatee never quite connected with his sideburns. What I wouldn’t give to see what that goatee would feel like on my pu… “Are you enjoying yourself here tonight?” His voice was low and smooth like white chocolate. Since when did I like white chocolate like that?

“I am. Thank you for asking, and yourself? Or is this just a regular hang out spot?” Sexy Mysterious smiled and gave a little laugh. Ava almost flooded the bar. He has a chin dimple! She readjusted her position on the chair. And those eyes are they grey or green? S*** can they be both?! No, as Jamie Foxx says, it must be the alcohol.

Just a Little Bit Closer…

by Whitney N. Lee

It was a beautiful autumn day. The sun was bright and clear, and the air around was crisp and light. Fallen leaves coated the ground and occasionally were swept into the air by the gentle breeze. By all definitions, it was a perfect day.

But here Aubrey stood, surrounded by flowers, as the occasional sniff and strangled cry rang out into the haunting silence. An inconsolable mother was barely able to stand as her eldest son and husband supported her on both sides. Aubrey’s eyes and nostrils burned as the priest began his last words. Her chest felt as if it were bearing bearing the weight of a thousand men.

She didn’t want to be here. The priest’s words, or anyone else’s for that matter, meant nothing. They did not ease her pain or sorrow. They were not a final farewell, and they certainly could not bring Melanie back. Melanie was dead, and the dead were no longer among the living.

Unquenched: … still thirsty

by Jorie Dakelle


Jorie Dakelle has found her way into the hearts of her readers by soliciting their feedback and giving them a choice on how the book should end. “Everyone has their own ideas,” says Jorie, “so I gave them the chance to finish the book with the ending of their choice. Everyone is happy.”

Jorie, a debut writer, cleverly creates three versions (third version to be released soon), all exactly the same, until the last chapter where each journey ends dramatically differently in order to cater to various tastes. “You would think that we all read different books,” said one of her readers. “We couldn’t stop comparing notes and wound up switching books so we could all read the other endings!”

And that’s when Jorie decides to create a fourth version (not yet released) where she packages all of the endings into one book! She gives you a choice of which one to read, with the goal of experiencing the same book in many ways.

Without giving away the ending, a slight variation on the book cover subtitle and the brief description below, helps the reader decide which version to buy. Unless the reader buys the fourth book with all the endings, it’s kind of a gamble as to which ending they will receive – but that’s the fun of it and that’s what all the buzz is about!!!

*** Note: It is suggested that only one version of the UNQUENCHED series is purchased by each customer as the only change, from book to book, occurs in the last chapter. It is then that the characters take on completely different roles from the other versions and the story changes along with it.


“A passion has erupted inside of me leaving me no choice but to share my story and obsessive thoughts between two men. It is a story of dreams, emotions and experiences. By sharing it, I hope to set myself free.”

Unquenched is about a tormented triangle filled with love and deception. It is about passions and dreams and discovering unquenched thirsts that lie deep within us. It is about the need to satiate our lust for life and not settling for anything less. It is about the thrill of adventure and taking risks to understand the complexity of simply feeling alive. This story is expressed through an unexpected romantic interlude that takes place in Indonesia and finds its way to New York.

“I can see the truth now, although I realized it all along, I just never had the courage to admit it. There was something missing. In a word, passion.”

“Despite our differences and my fear of the unknown, I was determined to see him again.”

“Not a moment was wasted before his lips touched mine and I relaxed as my uncertainty disappeared. We became lost to each other as our bodies were entwined and I savored the moments I had waited for. His hands and mouth worked well together, and with his tongue leading, he began to venture to my lower half. His hands assisted as I felt my pants slowly move down my legs. With my body fully exposed, he warmed me, as I felt his mouth affectionately stroke my inner thighs. I ran my fingers through his hair letting him know that my barriers were no longer present. His mouth and fingers traveled up my legs, and met where the top of my thighs became one. Then, as if he could read my thoughts, just the way he did on Bali, with his muscular arms and body a blanket on mine, he embraced me tighter, then tighter still, until finally we became one.”

“My mind could not rest. I did not trust that our intimate night was an indication that we had moved forward. I had no idea what lay ahead but my gut told me that something was wrong.”

And then there was Jean. The similarities were strikingly scary. Yet another love triangle. But it was inconceivable to fathom, that together, they were capable of such an endeavor. And one that forced me to choose.

Somewhere along the line, I lost myself and I have no idea right now of what to do about it. God I have no idea of what I want, what I like or if I have the bloody energy to make it happen. I must be jinxed in some way or maybe I was an incredibly bad person in a previous life. I just hope it was bloody worth it!”

The King’s Bride (The Vampire Royalty Series)

by Mackenzie Strong

“The room reminded me of one that you would see on movies, where people are cut up or experimented on. I stopped walking, resisting the strong pulls of the two men whose hands were locked in a death-grip on my arms. Caleb turned to look at me when I said with alarm, “Why are we in here?”
For a moment, Caleb just looked at me blankly, then he sighed, rubbing his face with his palm. He met my eyes with a look of such pure sadness and misery that I became even more alarmed. If my heart had been beating, there was no doubt it would have sped up.
“I’m sorry,” he said, burying his head in his hands, “I’m so sorry Casey.”
My eyes widened involuntarily as the door opened behind me. I whirled around to face the man. Long, dark hair slicked back into a ponytail, pale olive-toned skin and midnight black eyes surrounded by dark lashes. A thin white scar shone on his left cheekbone and his face was freshly shaved and showed few signs of aging. He looked exactly the same as the last time I’d seen him.
Alessandro Draco.”

Six years after Phoenix became the vampire King, Casey finds herself the happy mother of four-year-old, Rose.

“The handsome new Boston writer Rick Bettencourt jumps onto the platform of young brilliant writers with this short but exceptional book Not Sure Boys. If there are more stories such as these in his head or imagination then we are going to be noticing the rise of a writer in the ranks of Jamie O’Neill, K.M. Soehnlein, André Aciman, David Leavitt, Michael Cunningham, Edmund White, Alan Hollingsworth, Paul Russell, Jim Grimsley, Andrew Holleran to list some – those writers of great intelligence and masters of the English language who have taken up where EM Forster and Christopher Isherwood left off, creating stories about the world of gay men.”

DEEP PURPLE (a historical romance)

by Parris Afton Bonds

As a child, a young girl with coltish legs and dusky skin, I spent many anxious hours prowling the low desert and the craggy foothills of southeastern Arizona’s Huachuca Mountainsâ?? anxious hours not just because I was trespassing on the forbidden Cristo Rey land grant but also because I was searching among the rocks and cactus-stubbled dunes for the Ghost Lady, hoping and praying I could get a glimpse of her and at the same time scared to death that I really would.

Some say she haunted that area of Cristo Rey because she was a tormented wraith looking for the lover denied her in life. And others say she rode the area, its barren deserts and rock-clad mountains and lush, grassy valleys, because her soul was condemned to wander Cristo Rey until the fifty thousand acresâ??and the Strongholdâ??were at last returned to her heirs.

Of course, I preferred to believe the latter . . . perhaps because at that young age my childish mind could not conceive of a love so great that it would transcend time and space. I had yet to taste of love’s binding passion. But in all likelihood I chose to believe that version of the tale because even then I knew, like my Ghost Lady, my soul would know no peace until I possessed what rightfully belonged to me . . . Cristo Rey.

Broken Man

by Christopher Scott


Who is this man in seat seven?

Amanda enjoyed his smile, pleasant and well framed against the backdrop of his ruggedly tanned face and close cropped dark hair flecked with gray. But at the same time, She sensed a certain sadness beneath the pleasant exterior, as if this strong, durable looking man had been hurt, damaged, or broken in the past. This man is different, She thought to herself and was surprised at the immediate attraction she felt for a stranger.

It wasn’t just physical attraction, the kind that many people mistake for love and then proceed to ruin their lives accordingly. No, this was more than that. Maybe it was because of the holiday or perhaps it was due to her loneliness, but Amanda had the feeling that this man was meant to sit at her table tonight, that some unique circumstances had conspired to bring them together.

Could it be love at first sight? Could it be destiny? Could he possibly be feeling the same thing?

Broken Man is the centerpiece of The Broken Man Series of contemporary romances by Christopher Scott. Approximately 200 pages, 50,000 words.

The medieval stories about Tristan which I have chiefly used in writing this book are a German poem, Tristan, by Gottfried of Strasburg, a Norse poem, Tristansaga, by Brother Robert and a French poem, Tristan, by Thomas of Brittany. I have also consulted four other French poems about Tristan, one by Beroul, one called Honeysuckle by Marie of France and two by unknown authors called Tristan’s Madness. All seven poems were written between 1150 and 1230.

I have used two episodes from the later French prose Tristan; but for the most part it tells an inferior story. In English there are only the rhyming Sir Tristrem, a much later and rougher version of Thomas’ poem, and in Sir Thomas Malory’s famous Morte a”Arthur a poor imitation of the French prose Tristan. I have taken nothing from those two sources.

The love-story of Tristan and Isolt contrasts so vividly with the sombre simplicity of early medieval life that it has inspired not only storytellers but many poets and artists. During the Middle Ages it was constantly retold and inspired more artists than any other story except those of the Bible and the Christian saints. In the past one hundred and fifty years it has inspired several important poems and an opera.

Wagner’s opera Tristan und Isolde is still performed; and the long poems of Swinburne, Tennyson and Mathew Arnold are in most libraries. Some of the original medieval literature which is listed above can now be read in scholarly translations; but this book retells the medieval story for the general reader.

What Readers Are Saying:
“I fell in love with this book. After reading her first book, “Angels in Cowboy boots”, I wanted to read more. She is so gifted in story telling and keeps you wanting more…and each story gives you a sense of goodness, but not the sappy kind that makes you think that we live in a sugar sweet world…..she is factual for a fiction writer. There is always a lesson, a real life lesson, to be learned in her stories…She can make you hurt from laughing and go thru a box of kleenex from the heartache and dispair…But throughout all of this, you learn and feel the hope and peace that God brings into these characters lives, just like in our non-fiction world…”

“If I could give this one 6 stars I would! This is the best novel from SQ so far. There are so many surprises in this book that keep you turning the pages. You think you have it figured out and then another twist keeps you in suspense. I don’t want to say too much and spoil your fun. Don’t miss this one–I’m giving it to all my friends.”

Product Description

Dan Hilles is a pretty regular kind of guy – regular job, regular bunch of mates, regular male aversion to shopping. But following his break-up with long-term girlfriend, Stacey, he finds himself single again. He’s been out of the game for a while and is a little out of practice. Soon, the very irregular and increasingly worrying issue in Dan’s life is the extended drought he finds himself suffering. And we’re not talking the climate change, scorched earth, God I’m parched variety.

You’ve got to hand it to Dan though – it certainly isn’t from a lack of trying. With stalwart mates Ollie, Jack and Rob on hand to lend their collective pearls of male wisdom and arrange the odd road trip, you’d think Dan’s days of languishing in a sexual wilderness would be numbered. You’d think…

Even best friends can’t help prevent the kind of surreal holes Dan just can’t seem to help digging himself into. And with each failed attempt, his self-esteem plummets to the point where he wonders if ‘little Dan’ will ever work again.

Good job he has Kelly, his reliable and sympathetic colleague, to confide in. As a woman, she can perhaps shed some female light on why he’s failing so miserably with the opposite sex, balancing out the testosterone-fuelled ‘advice’ from the lads. Surely Dan can’t go wrong with Kelly teaching him the various intricacies of a woman’s mind. You’d think…

Steven Scaffardi’s first novel will have every guy laughing out loud in recognition and every girl secretly worrying – is this how men really think? A new talent to watch out for on the ‘lad-lit’ scene.

Handbags at Dawn

by Kerry Frith

On advice from her agent and best friend Clarke, Cali heads to the country for some ‘time out’ to find herself and get her writing spirit back but as soon as she arrives, she finds herself easily distracted by the country life.

Who knew shovelling horses crap could be so sexy, singing karaoke in the local pub could be so much fun and a change of scenery is, indeed, as good as a rest.

With village gossip, a grumpy but sexy handyman and handbags drawn at dawn, will Cali ever be able to write another best selling novel and find Mr Right or is she doomed for life?

One Lucky Bride (Rapid Romance Short Stories)

by Krystal Kelly

My name is Kelly Bryson and I was betrothed to marry into an old moneyed family from New York City. I agreed to it to keep my parents happy. They saw it as a chance to climb up the social ladder.
I know it’s the twenty first century and daughters can marry who they want, and arranged marriages are a relic best left in the past but I must admit that I quite fancied Terrance Harrington the Third. So to be honest I agreed to the marriage because at six foot three and the body of an Adonis with the looks to match Terrance was hot. If he had looked like a nerdy computer geek with a personality to match I would have totally turned down my parent’s request.
Oddly enough his family’s money did not interest me in the slightest. We had plenty of money so even though he showered me with expensive gifts and lavish dinners none of it impressed me.
I was not after those material things because they were things I could get myself. What I was after was a man who could sweep me off my feet with his charm and wit, a man who I could love without any fear knowing that he will return my love with interest.
Unfortunately Terrance Harrington the Third was not that man. He had the charm and wit of a statue. He was wooden, when he spoke there was no sincerity, when he kissed there was no passion, when he did something for me or with me there was no commitment, and when we finally made love there was only awkwardness and a hurried climax. It was like dating a bad actor following an equally bad script.
Will Kelly Bryson find true love or is she doomed to spend the rest of her life with a man with no substance, a man empty of love? Kelly has her destiny in her hands but will she make the right choices or will she continue to put other people’s priorities before her own. Will Kelly Bryson be lucky or unlucky in love?
This short story is part of the Rapid Romance Bride Collection series. The Rapid Romance collections of romantic short stories brings back the old fashioned romances where the heroine is a lady, the hero is a gentleman and true love reigns supreme. If you want your romance stories to be uplifting with the odd twist thrown in to spice things up then Rapid Romance short stories are written for you.

Naked Wanting

by Aurora Rose Lynn

When promises are meant to be broken, can a girl hold onto her fantasies when her first love leaves forever? Can she regain that part of her soul that was lost?

Young Holly Spera thought she’d found the only man she would ever need or want, but one day, without saying a word, he simply vanished, crushing her dreams. She is forced to realize the good times they shared in the past, and the plans they shared of the future were only bits and pieces of the optimism that would never come true. Will she ever get over Colby Welles or will he live on in her imagination, a man who has become larger than life? The best part of her daydream is that she can create anyone she wants . . . .


“You’re not wearing panties,” echoed in Holly Spera’s head. The poignant memory of the hoarse male voice and his awe-filled words sent shivers of longing down her spine.

She strolled aimlessly out into the garden behind her mother’s house. A few days earlier, she had passed her twentieth birthday, but her heart was already shattered.

The fragrance of roses in full bloom filled the humid night air. Yellowish lights from inside the two-story building cast dancing shadows on the large backyard and the lightest whisper of a breeze rippled through the peach trees, daring to break the heart-rending stillness. Everywhere in the bushes behind her, crickets chirped endlessly. And tonight, eight months after she’d heard the exclamation that made her tingle to her deepest core, she wore no underwear. The hem of a smocked, thin cotton dress reached to her knees.

Recalling the strikingly handsome Colby Welles brought both pain and delight. Holly loved to press her soft curves against his hard planes, to rake her fingers through his short, honey-blonde hair while he whispered naughty nothings into her ear. When the sun cast its golden rays upon his head, the silken strands shifted to gold. She had told him often that he was her dream love, and how lucky they had been to find each other. He had chuckled, and held her even closer, squeezing the soft globes of her breasts against his broad chest. Colby had always been larger than life. Now he was gone.

Holly urged herself to relax her clenched fists and her tense thigh muscles. The summer heat surrounded her, almost like an envelope sealing its contents within. She paused and vigorously rubbed her upper arms, hoping she could forget Colby Welles and the overwhelming effect he’d had on her. There had never been a time after they’d left each other for short periods of time, when she couldn’t stop thinking about him. What was he doing now? What was he seeing with those beautiful eyes, neither solid green nor blue, yet almost a soft turquoise, that reminded her of the edge of a lake in the middle of a summer’s day?

The Romantic Dreamer

by Romeo D. Matshaba

Her angelic features and extreme beauty lured my eyes, then her essence; her uniqueness propelled our hearts to fuse through a thousand acres of space. But she entered my life at my darkest hour, with my soul staring down a cliff ready to jump. The long fall of doom seemed pleasant compared to the scars the world had given me. In all evolving days thereafter, she tried to mend the million pieces of my broken heartâ?¦ one by one, but will these pieces form together a painting of bliss or the icy blades of destruction?

Jessie must let go her own sorrow to mediate the growing conflict. Can she overcome the tragedy that drove her away and give in to the passion that might bring her home to stay?

Sixty Days

by Zoe Glez

“”What, no last kiss for me?” I ask, my pout on full display. Mickey looks at me as if he suddenly remembers that this will probably be our last kiss until January and heads toward me. Pulling me in his arms, he kisses me with such passion and need that it makes me weak in the knees.

“I could spend a whole eternity kissing you, my heaven,” he says, breathlessly. “I love you, Laylah. You are my world, remember that.”

“I love you too, Mickey,” I whisper to him. Stretching up onto my tiptoes, I hug the love of my life, wishing that we could stay like this forever.”

Sixty days; the length of a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas, starting the day before thanksgiving and ending as soon as January 6th. That’s how long Laylah’s entire family will be visiting.

Laylah has been in love with her brother’s best friend, Mickey, since she was ten. Even at such a young age, she knew her love was true.
