Title ~A Very Good Year~

This story is most definitely not for the faint of heart. It's a wonderful, emotionally layered novel of hope, understanding, letting go and loving. Ms. Logan captivated me completely from page one, held me in an emotional whirlpool, and let me go at the last page, but not a minute before. I fell in love with Dmitri Hernandez and my heart twisted and ached from him. He's been through so much as a child and into adult hood!
After changing his life around, getting an education and moving to the Lazy E Vineyard and Dude Ranch in Texas, Dmitri meets Maverick Walker, a very sexy, rough around the edges cowboy that stirs his heart and lust. He's told himself all he wants is sizzling hot passion with him, not love. Then he lays eyes on Carlo Degli Esposti, a super sexy Italian wine expert. Both of these men take Dmitri's heart on a rollercoaster ride, and he can't help but feel as though there's more to life than just lusting. Could this be his year to fall in love with one of these men forever? Or will his past haunt him for ever, leaving him broken and alone?
I absolutely adored every minute of this book. I read it back to back with book 1, Captive Lover, and was so glad that Dmitri's story was told. Ms. Logan did a wonderful job of transitioning to Dmitri's tale, and creating the complex characters, blending them with the rich details of Texas and ranching. The passion was sizzling hot; the sex scenes were amazing! These three men are not only sexy, they work your way into your heart to forever stay.
I am so glad that I had the chance to read this! Definitely a highly recommend novel. I am a forever fan of Ms. Logan, loving her uniqueness and vivid attention to romance and heartache. I am looking forward to reading book 3, The Cowboy Queen (Maverick's story!) next! Amazingly done, Ms. Logan. *smiles*

Title ~The Sexual Indoctrination Of Melissa: Book Two Of The Lord Z Chronicles~
By Mangus Fitzpatrick
Publisher ~ Mangus Fitzpatrick ~

My Rating ~ 3 out of 5
If you are looking for a sweet, romance story.....well, definitely don't read this one. But, if you love those sexy, hot, erotic tales of Masters and slaves, then you definitely need to check out the Lord Z Chronicles. From start to finish of this short story, you'll be completely hooked Melissa's journey of submission and trust. The scenes within the story are incredibly intense and you feel Melissa's emotions come over you like they are your own.
What I didn't like about the story was how short it was. Its 78 pages, and I felt that as soon as I got to really know the story, it ended. Melissa's lessons in completely surrendering to the control of a master was well written and kept me captivated. I can't imagine ever surrendering complete and total control, but Fitzpatrick created Melissa's submission in such a way that it's intriguing. Exploring a kinkier side to ones self is always intriguing to me, and that's what Melissa did. From bondage and total unexpected encounters, Melissa's indoctrination is definitely erotic!
I definitely suggest that you try this story if you love the more intense scenes of eroticism. Mr. Fitzpatrick definitely has a talent for creating a good series. Again, my only complaint is that they are short and leave you ready for more instantly! Looking forward to reading more of Mr. Fitzpatrick's Lord Z Chronicles.

Title ~Summer Storm And Other Stories~
By Juliette Turrell
Publisher ~ House of Erotica
Published ~ 2 May 2012
My Rating ~ 4 out of 5
HOT, HOT, HOT!!! That's the best way to describe this short book of short stories. From a wild ride in the storm, to a sexy man in a kilt, to menage and more, this erotic compilation of short reads is a perfect way to pass the lunch hour! Or if you're looking for that quick night time read.
My one complaint about this book is that the stories were too short. I loved the plot lines and the detail that Ms. Turrell uses to describe each scene and what the characters want, but just when you get really into the scenes, she hits you with the ending of one story and the beginning of another.
Over all, I really enjoyed this read and definitely recommend this steamy, erotic story to everyone who loves good kinky passion and the wilder side of fantasies!
