Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{September 21, 2007}   Seasons of Seduction – Ellora’s Cavemen Anthology


A Man of Vision By Kate Willoughby
For Cristoforo, sculpting marble is his life, but the price of creation is a libido that rides him like a demon. When he discovers his sculpting days are numbered, he hires a mistress to satisfy him night and day.

Modern-day courtesan Delphine arrives at Cristoforo’s villa prepared for the rigors of being on call 24/7. What she isn’t prepared for, however, is the intensity of her body’s response to Cristoforo. When she learns what is driving him so ruthlessly, she wonders if she can protect her heart…or if it’s already too late.

I Was an Alien’s Love Slave By Charlene Teglia
Micki Sloane needs a hero and she needs him now. She’s got a deadline, writer’s block and no inspiration. What to do? Wish on a star.

Keelan Os’tana has been seeking his bondmate, the one woman who is on his wavelength — literally. He answers Micki’s mental call by beaming her up into erotic adventure beyond her wildest imaginings. Her options? Form the permanent telepathic bond with Keelan or go home and write for the tabloids. “I Was an Alien’s Love Slave” is a sure seller, but Keelan tempts her to live the fantasy instead.

On Her Back By Renee Luke
Simone Harris is experienced when it comes to loss — most recently, that of her brother Jerold. But when his best friend Elijah, wounded in the same fray that killed Jerold, returns home, Simone tries to put her pain aside and offer him her support. She wants to give him anything and everything he needs.

Elijah Russell survived every night he spent in the desert — and, later, in the hospital — by invoking fantasies of Simone. On her back. Beneath him. Now, just being near her again is enough to make him forget his pain for a moment. But his heated emotions seem to be mutual, and soon those fantasies might become a reality. Simone and Elijah both need time to heal, but it’s a lot easier to wait together.

Panther’s Pleasure By Cathryn Fox
Sash has spent her life coursing through space. She’s never gotten sick before. But as they approach planet Lannar, she begins to feel very ill, and when she meets Kade, leader of Lannar, all kinds of things begin happening to her libido.

When Kade sets eyes on Sash he knows she’s his mate. How it’s possible that an Earth woman is the mate for a shape-shifting panther, he’s not sure. All he knows is that there is only one way to help ease her pain and make her first transformation easier. Through mating. And once will never be enough.

Sunshine for a Vampire By N.J. Walters
Sunshine DeMarco is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed vampire who just doesn’t fit in with her own people. She doesn’t really like the whole vampire lifestyle — the opulent surroundings and overindulgence in everything from food to drink to blood. But even she has family and social obligations.

While attending a party for a special European dignitary, she finds herself captivated by a tall, dark stranger. One sensual dance between them leads to a passionate tryst in the host’s garden. Reality intrudes and Sunshine flees, but she hasn’t seen the last of her mystery lover.

The Pirate and the Pussycat By Lacey Alexander
When Leah gets an invitation to a Halloween bash, she has mixed emotions. At last year’s party, she met a man, fell for him hard and…never heard from him again. So this year she’ll take a new approach. Screw emotions — she’s going to find a sexy guy and do the dirty with him, no strings attached.

Arriving in her sexy cat costume, she spies a hot pirate and knows instantly that he’s the man she’s going to seduce. But can she succeed? Or will this naughty little kitty end up heartbroken all over again?

Nic’s Recommendation:

If the gorgeous cowboy on the cover doesn’t immediately draw your interest, the list of authors should. You really can’t go wrong with an anthology featuring Lacey Alexander, NJ Walters, Charlene Tegila and Cathryn Fox. What a great line up. These four fabulous authors never fail to create memorable tales of love and lust.I had never read anything by either Kate Willoughby or Renee Luke, but will now check out their previous books.

The anthology begins with Ms. Alexander’s story, and boy does she ever get this heated up and off to one heck of a start. I want to be at next year’s Halloween party! Ms. Fox’s shape-shifter got me purring. The third story, Ms. Luke’s tale of a wounded military hero’s homecoming, touched my heart. The fourth story, by Ms. Teglia, is a funny and hot romp through space. I’m ready to be abducted by a hunky spaceman! Ms. Walter’s sexy vampire has me ready to bitten. Silvestru can nibble on my neck anytime! Yum! Ms. Willoughby tops things off with an erotic tale that takes the Pretty Woman theme to whole different level.

I highly recommend you pick up this hot book for a great journey across genres and showcasing a lot of talented authors. It’s a great way to try out new types of stories and become introduced to some new authors you may not have read yet.

Seasons of Seduction released today in both ebook and paperback from Ellora’s Cave.

Hey, thanks so much for the review! I’m honored to be in an anthology with these other five so talented writers. I hope that the “different level” I took Pretty Woman to is a good one!! LOL
