Nicole Austin – Scandalous

for Make Mine A Double and Taken from Julianne – Two Lips Reviews

Make Mine A Double

“Ms. Austin writes a steamy, hot read that kept me turning the pages and then I needed a cold shower when I finished it. All of the characters complimented each other very well and they had depth and lots of emotion. All of the characters complimented each other very well and they had depth and lots of emotion. Make Mine A Double is an enjoyable read that will leave you panting for more.  I’m definitely going to read My Greatest Fantasy to see how Bella, Rhys, Max, and Brayden got together.


Taken by Nicole Austin is a short story packed full of action, emotions, and is fast paced. The storyline is well written and exciting, and keeps the reader turning the pages. I admire Mikael’s strength and his love for Dani; I liked his character very much. I believe Dani loves her husband; she just needs something extra from him and he doesn’t understand why she needs it.

Taken is a sequel to Erotique, a book I haven’t read yet, but you can bet that I will be reading it very soon. I want to learn more about Dani and Mikael and their life together. I really enjoyed reading Taken; it’s a very fast read that would be great for a lunch time break. Read Taken by Nicole Austin today and put a little zing in your day.”


5 of 5 flames from Kitten, Hotly Ever After Reviews

Kitten’s Review:
“This is my first trip into literary erotica with this author. And I have to say that I was not disappointed. From the moment the book started, I was instantly connecting with the main character. Olivia made me smile at times, and at first I wanted to just hug her. Then, the unexpected happened.
“Not only did a cop come banging at her door insisting on entry. But he busted in, pinned her to the wall, and started to search her! And it wasn’t just a normal pat down, oh no! This was every kinksters dirty little cop fantasy come true. A hunky cop that just goes a bit too far. Add in some handcuffs, a wicked hot anal session, and I am totally a goner!
“Not only was this book spicy and totally earns the label of erotica, but it touched me. Somehow this author got me to love both characters, made me crave a good ending for them, and then drew tears from my eyes at the end of the book. Yes, yes, I was crying with Olivia. I won’t tell you why, that would ruin the fun of you reading the story.
“The moment I finished this short, I went in search of the authors other works and can’t wait to read them! It is not an easy task to get that much emotion, storyline, and sex packed into that small of word space. But this author does it for me. She does it, satisfied me, and made me not need more of THIS story, but more from this author in general. If you are in the market for a saucy, quick read, I recommend this!”

5 of 5 Sweet Peas from Mrs. Condit
“Nicole Austin’s HARD LOVIN’ is a very short, very spicy hot story and in order to not give away any spoilers, this review is going to be very short as well. Olivia is home alone on Valentine’s night after a difficult shift as an ER nurse. Her boyfriend Dex is also doing shift work and will not be able to join her. Olivia’s quiet evening is interrupted by someone banging on her door and… I can’t tell you one more thing. You would be well advised to pick up this short story and read it aloud to your Valentine lover. Things just might get really wild and sexy. Let’s just say Olivia’s vibrator will not be needed this night. And there is a terrific, romantic HEA at the end.”

HARD LOVIN’ – The Edge – Valentino’s Delight – Available today from Decadent Publishing

After a grueling graveyard shift in the E.R. and tromping through snow, the only things on Olivia Daughtry’s mind are a nice warm fire, a glass of chocolate wine and some quality time with her vibrator. Being interrogated by a tenacious cop wasn’t anywhere on her list of things to do.

There is too much at stake for Officer Hall to follow department policies or go easy on the sexy suspect. But nurse Daughtry is one tough cookie and the harder he pushes the hotter she gets. From handcuffs and an improvised gag to little blue candies, Hall will do whatever it takes to get the correct answer to his very important question.

Genre: Contemporary, erotic romance, Valentine’s Day/holiday, bondage

An Excerpt From: HARD LOVIN’ Copyright ©Nicole Austin, 2012

“Police. Open up.”

Police? Oh God, had something happened to Dex?

She didn’t bother taking another glance through the peephole. The brash officer had already scared ten years off her life. Instead, Liv held one hand against her breast to keep her galloping heart from puncturing through her rib cage; with the other she turned the lock.

The door burst open and Liv was bodily turned then shoved against the wall before she could make sense of what happened. A huge masculine form covered her from head to toe, pinning her in place, not that she’d even think of struggling against a cop. The door slamming shut rang in her ears like a gunshot.

“Don’t you fucking move,” a sinful, deep voice growled in her ear.

His weight shifted, allowing Liv to take a shallow breath. Capturing both her wrists in one hand at the small of her back, he held her immobile, kicked her feet wide apart, and started patting her down.

A blast of terror colder than the storm raging outside racked her body with shivers. The officer’s big hand slid over her shoulder and arm to the elbow then grazed her ribs before descending lower. He cupped one ass cheek and squeezed, pulling an indignant squeak from Liv. Copping a feel was so not part of a standard police pat down as far as she knew.

He didn’t stop there. The officer bent, keeping her off balance as his hand trailed her outer leg then reversed direction and slid up, all the way up to her crotch before following the same path on the other leg. When his hand found the other fleshy globe, he groped her again before finishing off at her shoulder.

Slimy bastard!

Maybe, but being felt up by a man whose face she hadn’t even seen was getting her hot and bothered. The bite of cold steel registered against her wrist a mere second before the snick of the handcuff locked her down tight. His next move shocked Liv to her core.

She was kept facing the wall but the officer shifted, pulling her back against his broad chest, one thick thigh pressed between her legs, and he now used both hands to continue his search. Warm fingers trailed over her collarbones, dipped into the hollow of her throat, and drifted lower in an almost sensual caress.

“Why did you do it?”

His warm breath wafted over her neck as he filled his palms with her breasts, gently squeezing and rubbing, scattering her thoughts. How the hell did he expect her to answer questions when he tweaked her aching nipples?

“We’ve been hunting that scumbag Simmons for more than a year and you let him walk.”

Bert Simmons? Her patient from last night? The guy the cops had banged around and brought in for treatment. He’d been sound asleep on the gurney when she’d clocked out and left the hospital.

“I-I didn’t—”

Her denial was cut short by the hands gliding over her belly, slipping beneath the waistband of her pajama pants, moving lower until warm, calloused flesh covered her mound. But he didn’t stop there, oh no. He spread her labia and one long finger slid over her slippery inner folds and plunged deep.

All strength left her with a gasp, and Liv sagged against the officer’s strong body. At that moment she didn’t understand or care what was going on. He could do whatever he wanted as long as he didn’t stop.

About to Blow – Valkyrie’s Vow, Book One

For a thousand years, Mist has shepherded battle-slain warriors to their choice of Valhalla or Asgard. It’s the task she was charged with upon her own death, the mission she chose when becoming Valkyrie. Never before has she fallen for one of those warriors. But then, never has she felt emotions like those evoked by Kurt Stone.

As an undercover cop, Kurt expected a shortened life. He didn’t expect an afterlife spent jumping from realm to realm, screwing a tattooed hottie who makes his blood boil. He should be choosing his next destination, but he’d rather spend eternity indulging in Mist’s delectable body.

The vicious betrayal that led to her death has made Mist reluctant to trust, let alone love. If Kurt can help her face ancient demons, they both might find their idea of Heaven…together.

Reader Advisory: A cute chick at a club shows Mist a very good time on the dance floor. Valkyries are nondiscriminatory that way.

Someone moved in behind her and pressed against her backside. Mist didn’t miss a beat or bother to open her eyes. She raised her hands above the crowd, stretching her long form without a care as to who was grinding against her ass. She wanted to shake off some of the stress of the last few months. Her schedule had been a bitch. A warm body pressed against hers felt good. Really good.

The beat changed to something seriously sensual and that body pressed closer. Mist felt the brush of breasts on her back.

A chick. Nice.

The ’ludes had settled in. Nicer.

The girl slid her arm around Mist’s waist, splayed a hand on her stomach and pulled backward, hard, as if fucking her from behind in the middle of the club. Mist was getting hot. It’d been ages since she’d had a woman. Hell, it’d been ages since she’d had time for anyone. But who could keep up with time?

Maybe this town wasn’t as bad as she’d thought it would be when she’d landed here. That delicate hand snaked over her exposed belly and down the front of her leather skirt. It was short—extremely short—making it easy for the girl to reach underneath.

Mist leaned back, finally taking a glance over her shoulder to check out her bold dance partner. The hot chick’s eyes were closed. Her face looked like a pretty porcelain mask, with overly made-up eyes and bright cherry-red lips. A tight braid held back long red tresses. She was dressed a little too much like a schoolgirl for Mist’s taste but she wasn’t in the mood to be choosy. Especially since the girl’s fingers had found Mist’s clit.

She thrust her hips forward, helping the girl out as Mist let her fingers do their own walking, gripping the hottie’s muscular thighs as her arousal gained momentum. Mist was wet. Her pulse pumped in her clit. The beat changed to a sporadic tempo far too elusive to attempt to follow. Mist felt her legs weaken, her muscles contracting.

They were attracting little attention since the dance floor was packed, but one tall-dark-and-handsome strode by, glanced down and decided to watch the show.

Mist enjoyed an audience. She watched his face as he watched Hottie’s fingers dance over her pussy. He licked his lips and looked up to Mist’s face. She liked his eyes. Dark, dark brown. Maybe black. It was hard to tell in the club lighting. He wore long sideburns, trimmed and neat, sexy; they mimicked the square outline of his jaw. Both his ears were pierced and sported silver skulls. Leather cuffs wrapped each wrist, accentuating thick forearms.

The throbbing percussion of the music was like a caress, the ’lude had her all relaxed and Mr. Yummy was still watching her. As Hottie continued working her clit, Mist let her gaze lower. The man’s shoulders were broad and clad in a tight black shirt. His jeans were loose, except around the tops of his very thick thighs.

He was sex on toast as far as Mist was concerned. She could have fucked both of them right there and then.

One of the many advantages of being a Valkyrie—no moral limitations holding one back.

A golden cross suddenly shimmered into being on Mr. Yummy’s forehead.

“No!” Mist let her head fall back against Hottie’s shoulder. The relaxing high she’d been enjoying washed away as if she’d snorted a line. “Damn it! No.”

He was marked.

{December 7, 2011}   Lots of Good Vibrations!

Wow! I am absolutely blown away by this comprehensive, amazing review of Good Vibrations by Christin of Saucy & Sinful Reviews and I just have to share her entire review.

“Erotic Romance Author Nicole Austin is just one of the fabulously talented authors of the scrumptious Toys-4-Us series that has this reader mesmerized with her steamy-story, GOOD VIBRATIONS.  Filled with her sizzling characters and boundary-pushing stories with adrenaline charged passion that is ready to ignite and scorch up the sheets…pages.

“It has taken two long years and a girls’ weekend to get Sara Cooper in a Jack Taylor frame of mind.  Jack has always been an intricate part of Sara’s world.  A broad shoulder to cry on after her ex-husband annihilated her self-worth.  Now, Sara is seeing her ‘best bud’ in a whole different light.  With her pink satin Toys-4-Us bag in hand she is on a mission to spike their relation up to full throttle lovers.  She has brought home an arsenal that is up to the job of making jack finally hers.

“It’s been a long time coming to finally get beautiful Sara Cooper to see him in a different light then ‘good ole’ Jack.  Sara has always fir right, in his arms, in his life and now he is about to get that beautiful blonde minx in his bed and prove that he is the only one for her.

“Sex toys and hot phone sex leads to one outstanding moment that rocks both their worlds!  Is mind blowing sex enough?  Or can this be the perfect time that Jack and Sara finally get what they have always wanted…each other.

“GOOD VIBRATION is a wonderfully hot contribution to the Toys-4-us series by a new-to-me-author, Nicole Austin which I am thrilled to have finally discovered.  Austin sets the pages on fire from the word go with a provocative prose that engage her readers into a daringly erotic journey by two very flesh-and-blood characters.  At forty-four, Sara Cooper has just gone through the most humiliating thing a woman can.  After more than twenty-years of marriage to cold snake, Sara found herself downsized for a younger model.  Instead of falling to pieces, this young forty-ish bombshell slaps her backbone back in place and starts over.  Sara shines courage, power, independence and a sassy sexuality that makes readers route for Sara to get her happily ever after.   To go with her happiness, Austin created one very hot daddy that not only hits Sara’s spot but romantic junkie’s spot.  Jack Taylor is smoking hot sex on a stick.  Readers are not left to wonder how these two will end up in bed together.  The thing that readers might wonder about, is why the two hadn’t gotten together sooner.

“Characters are everything or so I’ve read it somewhere.  A book without engaging characters that have been stripped to the bone only to be rebuilt, well, is just a book with black and white print.  Characters are the meat and potatoes of all stories.  GOOD VIBRATIONS has it in spades with Sara Cooper and Jack Taylor.  These two have a variously seductive sassy attitude which makes great for dramatic conflict.  These two where so much fun, I hated to see it come to an end.  I absolutely adore these two and would love to see what happens next in their lives

“GOOD VIBRATION had quite a few elements that grabs a readers attention.  One is the fact that, here is a character in her mid forties going through a major transition in her life and she has the wear-with-all to not cow down, but pulls herself up and make her life better.  Austin does a beautiful job conveying how her ex hand pecked her into ‘his’ perfect woman.  Only to show readers, how genuine Sara was and that she did not need the trappings of high society and money to make a wonderful life for her.  Readers will enjoy how uncomplicated Sara and Jacks’s love for the other is.  It is everything and everyone around that is the complication life, but these two characters are prominent and out front in showing what and who they truly desire.

“Nicole Austin is a wonderful story teller that brings her sassy characters to life with her down-home charms that stir a reader’s imagination through vivid writing.  GOOD VIBRATIONS is a fantasy steeped in an incredible descriptive characterization, setting a provocative tone that transcends readers into Austin’ magical world. Readers not familiar with the lush works of Nicole Austin will become devoted fans after one read.”
