About Surrendering to the Beast

Title Surrendering to the Beast
Genre Erotic Paranormal-Romantic Comedy
Author Tina Donahue
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When she’s good, she’s very good. But when he’s bad, she’s better.
Taming the Beast, Book 2
As a good fairy, Heather is empathetic and chaste to a fault. No bad language, no dirty thoughts, flirting and no sex. But when a satyr named Daemon steps up to her reception desk at From Crud to Stud, she finds herself on the fast track to exquisite corruption.
Daemon is the total bad-boy package with a kiss straight from the dark side. Though he’s here for a supernatural makeover, Heather can’t imagine why any red-blooded woman would want him to change.
A disciple of the god of wine, Daemon has had his share of good times. But sex has never been this good. Heather brings out a new side of him, a side that makes him want to protect as well as pillage.
But Daemon needs a little creative backup to help set his fairy’s naughtiness free. And that means bringing in Mistress Jin. Under the genie’s tutelage and Daemon’s shameless lust, Heather is about to learn what it means to let loose.

Today’s featured book is What the Duke Wants by Amy Quinton.

About What the Duke Wants

Genre Regency Romance
Author Amy Quinton
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
England 1814: Miss Grace (ha!) Radclyffe is an oftentimes
hilariously clumsy, 20-year-old orphan biding her time living with her uncle until
she is old enough to come into her small inheritance. Much to her aunt’s
chagrin, she isn’t: reserved (not with her shocking! tendency to befriend the
servants), sophisticated (highly overrated), or graceful (she once flung her
dinner into a duke’s face). But she is: practical and in love, maybe, perhaps,
possibly.
The Duke of Stonebridge is an agent for the Crown with a
tragic past. His father died mysteriously when he was 12 years old amid
speculation that the old duke was ‘involved’ with another man. He must restore
his family name, but on the eve of his engagement to the perfect debutante, he
meets his betrothed’s cousin, and his world is turned inside out. No matter, he
is always: logical (men who follow their hearts are foolish) and reserved (his
private life is nobody’s business but his own). And he isn’t: impulsive or in
love, maybe, perhaps, possibly.
Can he have what he wants and restore his name? Can she
trust him to be the man she needs?
