    SEDUCTION HAS NEVER BEEN SO SCANDALOUS . . . Kendall Shaw loves her job as a boudoir photographer. When she enlists hot, gorgeous, 100% alpha male, Jase Burns for a custom photo shoot for a romance novel cover, she quickly discovers that he only took the job to get close to her. But her painful divorce has made her wary of men, and especially one who is eight years younger than she is. The moment Jase sets his sights on beautiful, sexy Kendall, he wants her. Despite their mutual attraction, she's rejected his every advance. But Jase loves a good challenge, and one steamy, seductive night at The Players Club changes everything between them. Kendall has never experienced such overwhelming passion, or been pursued so tenaciously.

About Erika Wilde

        Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name?

As Janelle Denison I've always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you'll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I'm writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I'm working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian's sizzling new relationship.

Jazz has never been known as a good boy.

A good drinker. A good partier. A damned good builder, and a hell of a good liar. Those are all descriptions that come to mind when the citizens of Loudon, Tennessee think of the tall, muscular, laughter-filled charmer they know as Jazz. And Jazz will admit to all of them: he likes to play; he likes to tease. And a little white lie surely never hurt anyone.

Until the sexy, too-shy kindergarten teacher, Annie. Annie sets fire to his lusts as well as to his heart. But Annie has a past he wasn’t aware of. A past that will draw Jazz into the heart of a conflict he had never expected to face. His little Annie is under the protection of the United States Marshal Service for her testimony that has a high profile, very wealthy businessman facing death by lethal injection. A man that will stop at nothing to see her dead.

Now, Jazz has to pull in some serious favors, just as he finds himself fighting not just an overprotective Marshal that he believed was the new school principal, but also a woman determined to save the charming liar that has never been serious. One that has never faced reality. A man that has always sworn himself a bachelor. A man that now is telling the most wicked lies of his life to steal the heart of the woman that has stolen his soul.

Nikki’s Review:

It seems like forever ago that I picked up my first Lora Leigh novel. I remember the way my heart sped up and my face went red with excitement and a little bit of shock. This author can write erotic romance like no one else I've read. I read the first book in this series about 6 years ago. I fell in love with the characters and the entire concept of the series. I was hungry for the next book. So you can imagine my sadness that book 2 was a long, long way off. It felt like Christmas when this book landed in my greedy little mitts! I told my husband to get pizza for dinner because I was planning on ignoring everything, except his book!

When I first met Jazz in book one, I was curious about him. He was a joker, a real playboy, and an absolute panty-melting charmer! But underneath all that surface stuff, was some real pain and sorrow. I knew he was mourning something. He is such a likeable hero; fiercely loyal and deals only in absolute honesty. He's struggling to understand this intense interest in the beautiful schoolteacher. He's so drawn to her and he can't quite put his finger on why she seems so familiar. He just knows he has to have her!

Kenni Maddox has been on the run for ten years. Fighting to stay alive and figure out who killed her mother and wants her dead. As a young teenager, she was fascinated by the older and more experienced Jazz. So coming home to him after so long away, and pretending to be someone else is torturous. Jazz thinks she died on the fateful night, along with her mother. She wants him to know who she is but to open herself up like that, could very well mean her death. She's been betrayed by someone in her family and they can never know that she survived.

Kenni is a kick ass heroine! She has fought so hard, with so little, to survive on the run for a decade. I love her sense of determination and her boundless strength. My heart ached that she was resigned to never have a true sense of peace or happiness. That she would forever be in the background watching the only man she has ever loved, live his life without her. I kept chanting to myself "just tell him it's you". I was on the edge of my seat and feverishly reading to get to that moment. And sweet baby Jesus...when Jazz realizes that the woman who has sparked his curiosity, is the young girl he never had a chance to love so many years ago, Gah! It was like lightening just exploded! He's angry, hurt, and so crazy happy that his Kenni is alive. He is definitely upset that she never came to him for help, that she didn't trust him. My heart fluttered for these two when that explosive moment came to a head. I was giggly, and all lumpy throated. I think I may have flailed my hands around a bit!

The love between these two was so palpable; I could feel it sitting on my chest. The feelings were so thick and angst filled, that I just about lost my mind trying to navigate through all the emotions. It was intense, hot, and so damn exciting that I was exhilarated. If you've never read a love scene written by Lora Leigh, it may be difficult to understand just how smokin' hot and incredibly beautiful it is. These scenes get me every time. I always think that I have myself in check and then...bam! Another love scene and my pulse is racing all over again!

I'm always so impressed by the complete story I get when I read a book by this author. The plot is so detailed but not too "wordy". I can't imagine the type of research that goes into her books. The mystery part is always so well thought out and executed. At the end of each book, I'm left thinking, how did she do that again? This book was no different. The intricately woven story was intoxicating and left me breathless. I can hardly wait for book 3! My only hope, is that it doesn't take another 6 years to get my hands on it.

Reading anything by Lora Leigh gives me a feeling of coming home. Not because I live the sometimes crazy lives of her characters. But because she was one of the first authors to introduce me to erotic romance so many years ago. When I had a chance to sit down with her during one of her RAW conferences a few years ago, it was like meeting a rockstar. She was so gracious and kind. She answered all my questions and signed my many, many, MANY books. She's a real class act in my opinion! If you love a solid plot, and heart stopping sexiness, read this book! Start with the first book in this series, Loving Lies, and then grab this one!

About the Love Series:

Love Garage (Love Brothers #1)

A Family Saga with humor, heat and heart--not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball!

Antony Love is the quintessential responsible oldest brother of a boisterous, Italian/Irish family, placed in charge at a young age by his parents who are busy running the family business. He manages his siblings with a fair but iron hand, until his life is shattered by personal tragedy leaving him the shell of the man he once was. 

When outspoken matriarch Lindsay Halloran Love becomes ill, the youngest brother Aiden shows up at Antony's garage, having dropped out of school (again), needing work and a place to crash. Antony provides both, with three caveats: "Don't smoke in my truck, don't be late for work, and don't mess with my girlfriend."

But Aiden Love, budding novelist, gets one glimpse of Rosalee Norris, young widow of Antony's lifelong best friend and all bets are off.

Safe Love: A Love Brothers Companion Novella (Love Brothers #1.5)

Antony Ian Love has a lot on his ample shoulders. He owns and runs a small business, is estranged from his teenaged daughter AliceLynn, his beloved mother is dying of cancer, and he's come face to face with his youngest brother Aiden's sudden reappearance into the Love family circle. Years of sublimating his true self in deep mourning for his long dead wife have hardened the surly, emotional shell he's nurtured, but one woman seems to have broken through. Rosalee Norris is the young widow of Antony's best friend Paul and their mutual sorrow and close friendship has slowly morphed into something more. 

Family therapist and recent divorcee Margot Hamilton is dropped into the close-knit Love family by necessity but fate has a real design twist in mind. With her heart and mind closed to anything resembling an emotional connection, Margot is shocked to discover something about Antony the very first time they meet--something she tries, and fails, to resist. 

SAFE LOVE, The Love Brothers novella is a tale of love's realistic complications within the saga of family devotion that runs as wide and deep as the Ohio River--except on Sundays when brothers Antony, Kieran, Dominic and Aiden work out their frustrations on the basketball court, Love brother style.




Coach Love (Love Brothers #2)


A Family Saga with humor, heat and heart--not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball!

The smoldering intensity of first love ~ the forbidden fantasy of temptation ~ the cold hard facts of real life.

When one man’s hopes are dashed apart in a split second after years spent chasing a dream, he returns home to Kentucky furious at the world and everyone around him.

Kieran Francesco is the middle son of the volatile, tight-knit Halloran-Love family. His role as peacemaker and the one true athlete is well established. He now faces life devoid of the sport he adores after a horrific, career-ending accident, which places him in a new and entirely uncomfortable position: that of the brother with no future.

Over the course of a few tumultuous months Kieran is plunged back into life at the center of the Love family, where he must cope with one self-destructive brother, one ill-timed reconnection to an old flame and a series of bad choices that land him in more trouble than he’d ever known existed.






Love Brewing (Love Brothers #3)


A Family Saga with humor, heat and heart--not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball!

Every family has one—the black sheep, the problem child, the prodigal. But Dominic Sean Love could teach all of those guys a lesson or two. Stuck in the middle of a boisterous group of siblings, he’s given “acting out” a new meaning from day one.

While he’s the one son who follows his strict father’s footsteps into the Love family business, he’s also the one who butts heads with him the hardest. Their epic clashes are the stuff of family legend. But they have made peace and work side by side to take Love Brewing to the next level of success.

Until Dominic does the one thing his father can never forgive.

Diana Brantley has been Dominic’s friend, girlfriend and ex-girlfriend so many times she’s lost count. When he shows up at the farm she’s slowly transforming into a wildly popular farm-to-table resource for restaurants all over the U.S. her first impulse is to shoot first and ask questions later. But she doesn’t. And their lives entwine once more, for good, bad and ugly.
