Deep, Dark & DangerousTall, Dark and Dangerous by Jaid Black

For some readon I had been putting this book off because I thought it was an anthology and I was not in the mood for anthologies at the time. But then I really looked at it and realized that it was a full book. Silly me. It was good. The premise is interesting, a little far-fetched, but interesting. I was doing my labels for this post and had a difficult time assigning one. This book seems to be paranormal but it is not in the usual sense, there is nothing supernatural about any of them. But it is about a society that lives totally underground (the time line is current time). They have little access to outside and do not want any. One of their gods or something told them that the people who lived on the surface were going to kill themselves off and so they went underground. Now after living there for a really long time (they say they are Vikings) they have developed their own technology and culture.

I will note, the book description says that Otar is their leader, he is one of their military leaders, but he is not their leader. I thing the leader's name is Nicholas but his story is in the Playing Easy to Get anthology.

A star in a world of wealth and privilege....
Fed up with Hollywood backstabbing, famous movie actress Madalyn Simon decided to escape the spotlight. Her new back-to-basics existence in an Alaskan cabin did take getting used to, but at least she was in control of her own destiny -- or so she thought. While snowmobiling on the frigid coast with her sister, the pair is taken hostage by a band of rough men who want them -- for reasons beyond imagining.

A captive in a world of inescapable seductions....
They are neo-Vikings from a hidden underworld, in search of women Outsiders to breed for the New Sweden clan. Their sexy leader, Otar, wants only one woman: Madalyn. Overpowered by his masculine strength and unmasked desire, Madalyn must become Otar's wife or face the marriage auction block. Now, in a world beyond dreams and as real as the hot flesh of her enticing warrior-husband, Madalyn discovers the power of an all-consuming passion -- as the fires of revolution threaten all she has come to love....

Pleasure Control (Avon Red)Pleasure Control by Cathryn Fox

Very good sensual read. I love the cover, it is awesome. The story was not really long, but it was fun and hot. Pleasure Prolonged comes out soon and I cannot wait to read it.

A dedicated scientist, Laura Manning has an I.Q. that's off the charts. But beneath her pristine white lab coat is a curvaceous body that craves satisfaction. She finds it hard keeping her mind on the experiment and off what's under the lab coat of her bad boy research partner, Jay Cutler, whom she's working with to develop a libido suppressant, an "antidote" for a society gone sex-mad, pumped up and over-stimulated by the miracle of Viagra.

With time running out, Jay offers to act as a human guinea pig, injecting himself with the libido suppressant. Laura's role requires lingerie, soft music and candlelight. Her job is to entice him, to determine if the suppressant tamps down his desires. Rather than cooling the flames of lust engulfing them, their "antidote" only heats them up . . . and there's only one scandalous way to deal with it!

Suddenly long days of laboratory work are giving way to sizzling nights of sensual experimentation-and a different kind of "chemistry" that leaves Jay and Laura breathless and gasping for more! Their professional careers may depend upon a successful climax-and there are dangerous competitors determined to steal their research. And maybe their pleasure games have gotten a bit out of control.

But who in her right mind would want to pull the plug on her man's libido when the loving is this deliciously hot?

Indeed Kris, you are very fortunate! Maybe I should start start a romance library in my town or at least in montreal and so, it wouldn't be my own money.
