Tess Jennings isn’t about to let her annoying little ability stop her from having a fun time.  She might be able to see and speak to ghosts, however she has also learned to ignore them for the most part too.  Just like with this cute guy, okay ghost, who just arrived beside her.  Tess quickly learns he is a smartass and wants her attention – now!  Not going to happen. That is until he does something no other ghost has ever done to her.

 

Kipp McGowan was a cop with the Memphis Police Department who was recently killed in the line of duty working on a cold case.  For some reason Kipp is just lingering around trying to figure out what happened.  Then he comes across Tess and immediately realizes she cannot only see him but also hear him.  With his murder, along with the case he was working on still out there, Kipp isn’t going to let her ignore him.  Kipp is attracted to the sexy Tess and comes up with an erotic way to get her to acknowledge him.

 

Tess still has major misgivings about going to the cops with her story, but after she and Kipp convinces his partner, as well as his boss, what happened, things begin to get very interesting.  Passion and danger surround Kipp and Tess.  As they unravel the facts of what happened the night Kipp was killed, they also find a link to the very cold case he was investigating.  You might think that would be enough but they also have to deal with the strong passion that has sprung up between them.  Tess is fighting with everything she has, not because Kipp isn’t everything she wants in a man, but because she knows that when his murder is solved, he will go away and leave her alone.  Unable to fight anymore, Kipp and Tess have to accept what they are feeling.  When all the questions are answered, will Kipp still be a lingering spirit in Tess’ life?

 

What if the man of your dreams is a ghost? Tess learns how to deal with this in Supernaturally Kissed.  From the first page I knew this would be one unusual love story and I was so right.  I instantly loved both Tess and Kipp, and their love of life attitudes, even though Kipp was already a ghost by then.  From the moment they met I could see this was going to be one fun relationship.  I loved how they found strength in both humor and love, even in the hardest parts of their adventure. They had me laughing several times as I read on. By the end, I found them to be the perfect partnership in all things.  Supernaturally Kissed takes humor, suspense, and passion and twists them all into a love story that is an instant keeper.  I can’t wait to see what happens on Tess and Kipp’s next case and I’m betting you will be waiting right along side of me.

Kenzie Hart is the dungeon brat and proud of it, because if she can keep that title, then no one has been able to discover all of the hard and painful things that she keeps hidden. The pain that she craves as a Submissive and the blocks she has placed on any of the Doms getting too close gives Kenzie the things she needs to survive. So when Kenzie is approached by the Dungeon owner and one of the Master Doms and asked to help another Dom prove if he is ready to be placed as a Master, of course she says yes. After all, what better way to for anyone to prove they are ready for the Master title than to try and tame the brat?

 

Porter Marshall is a private eye during the day and a Dom by the night, at least during the weekends when his Dungeon, Club Sin, is open for business. Porter knows all of the Masters in his current club, as they all were Doms together in another club before the first few broke away to join this one. When Porter is approached with the opportunity to become a Master in this Dungeon, he agrees to a challenge to prove himself to the members—a month where he will only play with one sub, the Dungeon brat, Kenzie.  Porter has wanted to approach Kenzie.

 

Right from the beginning Kenzie realizes that Porter sees much more than any of the other Doms have, and she works even harder to keep her secrets hidden. Porter can see exactly what Kenzie is doing and works even harder to show her that she can get even more happiness from pleasure than pain. When Porter learns of the danger Kenzie faces in her bookstore, he moves everything in his ability to keep her safe and take away the danger. What Kenzie believed was going to be a fun and easy month of playing with Porter has turned into a month of discovery and a budding love between them. Now that the month is almost over, both Kenzie and Porter need to figure out if they have what it takes to keep their relationship exclusive and give their love a chance to flesh out. Kenzie knows that the first step is all hers, no matter what Porter might believe.  After all, who better to gain her total submission than the Dom who tamed the brat and showed her that love and submission was the biggest pleasure of all.

 

A bookseller with deep secrets surrenders to a private eye who brings out the best in her in Tamed.  I have wondered about Kenzie since I first read about her and what was behind her actions at the Dungeon because she appeared to be much different when she wasn’t at the club. I already knew that Porter had lost at love at least once before ad that had hurt him. I was a bit surprised when he was willing to open himself up for Kenzie without knowing if she could ever give it back to him. I can see now that there could be no one else for Kenzie except Porter after seeing both of their pasts and strengths. I loved how Porter showed Kenzie exactly what she really craved and how he gave her a second beginning at the Dungeon, as his loving submissive and not the club brat. Tamed is very intense with emotions that will pull you one way and then the other before opening up to show you that it only took love, openness, and belief in yourself and the one you love to have everything. This is a wonderful next step in the personal lives of the Doms and Submissives of Club Sin that will have you coming back.

Mary Schmidt knows only too well how thrilling a Master’s touch can be. Her husband, Charles, had been her ultimate fantasy, a seducer in the erotic dance of dominance and submission. She misses the sensual lifestyle they shared, but mourns him so deeply she cannot bear to embrace her submissive needs with another Dom—until a man who exudes temptation reawakens desires she can no longer deny.   Elliott Foster is dazzled by Mary. He instantly knows that she’s the woman he’s been waiting for—a woman who turns games into need. As her Master, he dares to unlock the deepest pleasures of her flesh, releasing her from pain and healing her mind. When Mary’s lithe body comes to life under his, he knows their connection goes beyond sex. Now that he has found the perfect woman, the perfect partner, the perfect submissive, he desires only to give her everything she craves.

Mary Schmidt is a woman of many hats; she is a caring doctor, a mother with adult children, a lonely submissive, and a woman who lost the man she loves and her Dom.  Mary lived the lifestyle that gave her and Charles so much love for many years, but since Charles died of cancer, Mary just can’t bring herself to try and find another Dom.  Mary has spent several years now living her life, but she is missing that huge part of her life which was entitled ‘bdsm’.

 

Elliott Foster is a business man who knows what he wants and how to get it.  Elliott is also a Dom who never really found the submissive that he knew would be the one.  Among his many business investments is working with Dimitri, the president of a casino in Vegas and a much younger Dom.  Then one night, while eating dinner with Dimitri and his submissive, Elliott meets Mary and feels a tingle that makes him know she could be someone special.

 

Mary is surprised at how she felt anything when she met Elliott and how much his type of control and giving orders reminded her of Charles.  Even more surprising is the invitation that Elliott dared Mary to accept—a night at his invitation-only bdsm night for the mature crowd.  Accepting that dare will put Mary in a place she never thought to be again, which is a submissive under a Dom’s control.  Elliott learns quickly that Mary is a very special submissive and woman and learns just as fast that she is still mourning her deceased husband.  Elliott tries to help Mary and instead of coming closer together, they seem to fall farther apart. But fate isn’t about to be denied and, once again, Mary and Elliott have a chance to find that special relationship that Dom’s and their submissives have. But only if Mary can find a way to let go of the past and accept a new love in her future.  With Elliot’s loving guidance, Mary discovers that love, be it older or newer, is all accepting if you give it a chance.

 

A second chance at love is usually more than most people can hope for, but for one special doctor, it is right in front of her if she can just accept it.  Mary and Elliott have many hurdles to overcome in Freed.  I was so happy to see that Mary was going to get a happy ending.  I wasn’t sure what type of man would have the patience and strength to help Mary get on with living, but Elliott was just that man.  I loved watching him gently help Mary embrace a future in a new relationship, while not losing the many memories of her first love.  Mary and Elliott’s story was so amazing in that it showed just because you were no longer in your twenties or thirties, you could still have that tingle when love is discovered. There are so few books where both the characters are mature professionals that make me fall into them and become believable, and yet Ms. Kennedy did just that in Mary and Elliott’s story.  If that wasn’t enough, she also put them into the unique lifestyle of bdsm and again made it believable that this was a lifestyle that both had lived in for many years.  Freed is one of the ultimate mature love stories with two characters that will make you love them while following their path towards a future filled with play and passion.

Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey are sure to love Desired, USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy’s latest seductive, electrifying novel of Club Sin, where fantasy becomes reality.   Kyler Morgan, Master at the legendary Club Sin in Las Vegas, knows how to give women what they want—too well. He hasn’t had a real challenge in a long time. Then Ella Snow enters his life. Beautiful, inhibited, and innocent in the ways of submission and domination, Ella is the new blood he’s been lusting after. Soon, the thrill of training her to embrace his world brings forth desires Kyler cannot control.   After ending an abusive relationship, Ella makes a promise to herself to start living life to the fullest. It’s one of the reasons she seeks out Club Sin. Here, Kyler’s every touch is a lesson in liberation, stirring passions that have no bounds. But as she falls under Kyler’s command, Ella discovers that some secrets are so dark they must come to light. Submission alone may not be enough to save her, leaving her Master with only one question: How can he help Ella heal while unlocking the deep pleasures she craves?   Desired is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Ella Snow is coming out of a bad marriage and is starting her life over completely.  Part of that was accepting a challenge to live her life like she would die in six months.  Her first act on that challenge was to move to Las Vegas and get a job.  While at her new boss’s wedding, Ella suddenly comes face to face on just how lonely she really is. But that isn’t enough to end her challenge to herself and when one of the sexy groomsmen approaches her, Ella doesn’t say no to anything.

 

Kyler Morgan is one of the Masters at Club Sin and a cop in Las Vegas.  When he is asked to be one of the groomsmen at fellow Master, Aidan’s wedding, he accepts.  During the reception Kyler notices a beautiful woman that he has never seen before.  Before he can act, Kyler is warned about Ella by Aidan himself because she is Aidan’s legal assistant and very vanilla, but Kyler isn’t scared off by any of that.

 

One night of erotic passion was enough to show Kyler that Ella was submissive in nature.  Once he learned of her self challenge, he had the perfect way to find out if she could be a Submissive for his Dom.  Ella never expected her challenge to lead her into a BDSM club or to find herself dating one of the club’s Masters.  It takes very little time for both Kyler and Ella to discover that Ella is a perfect Sub, but also quickly becomes apparent to Kyler that Ella is keeping a big secret that is affecting her ability to trust him.  Ella’s immediate past has come to Vegas and Ella is trying to handle it herself while getting in deeper and deeper with Kyler.  When Kyler unexpectedly learns Ella’s secret, he needs her to tell him herself and to find a way to make Ella’s hurt go away permanently.  Ella’s worse fears happen when Kyler and the other couples from Club Sin find out exactly what she has been trying to handle on her own.  Ella learns the true meaning of love and friendship after a night that could have torn apart the life she had come to love.  Now it’s time for Ella and Kyler to discover if they can jump that last hurdle to take them into that loving relationship that all Doms and Subs search for.

 

When a sexy Cop who happens to be a Dom finds his perfect Sub in a legal assistant who has never experienced the BDSM lifestyle, can they find the path to a forever relationship?  Ella and Kyler both have lots of hurdles to overcome so they can be together forever in Desired.  All of the Ms. Kennedy’s Club Sin books have been intense so far, as well as erotic, but I have to say that Ella and Kyler’s story was the most intense yet.  I hurt when I read just what Ella lost when she faced the truth of her marriage and why she started over and I loved her self challenge.  Kyler was exactly what I thought of when I think of a cop who was a Master Dom.  I loved how Kyler lead Ella into his lifestyle and showed her just what they could be together.  I could see why Ella thought she had to deal with her problems herself and to not trust even the legal system she worked in herself.  I really loved how tight Ella and Kyler came together even from the beginning and also how Aidan did his best to protect her without knowing exactly what was wrong.  Kyler and Ella’s story had me so intrigued that I ended up reading it into the night and being very, very tired the next day.

 

There were so many things that I like and loved about Ella and Kyler’s story, that I just have to Joyfully Recommend Desired as a story you won’t want to put down.  Stacey Kenndy has written a tale full of discovery, true friendship, and a passion that is worth the journey it took to grab hold of it.  You don’t have to read the other Club Sin books in order, but I just bet that once you read one, you will go back for the others.

Libby works for her coven as their Enchantress – that is a witch who can conjure spells as her gift from the Goddess.  It also means that whenever anything strange or bad happens in their area, Libby is sent out to find out what happened and track down who was behind it so they can be punished.  Right now she has a case where cats are being killed and something about it is strange.  However, Libby is going to find out who is behind it.  Now it seems she has been given some unexpected help from the coven, a mysterious and sexy warlock named Kale.

Kale might be a new ward for the coven but he knows exactly what his job is and he is certainly strong enough to keep Libby safe.  Kale also has his own reasons for being assigned to Libby. What Kale didn’t expect was to enjoy Libby’s sass as much as he did nor did he expect the immediate attraction that hit him hard when they met. 

Libby believes that the only reason Kale was assigned to “help” her is because the coven is looking for a reason to get rid of her because of her attitude.  Now she is determined to show Kale just how good she really is at her job and begins to pull out some spells she had been working on but hadn’t really tried much yet.  Kale is very impressed by Libby and he tries to tell her that he isn’t trying to judge her for the coven.  Libby still isn’t sure, especially since he won’t answer her questions about who he is and what he’s doing.  When their investigation proves that there is something much larger going on and it’s directed at one of the largest foundations of the magical community, Libby and Kale are going to need to find a way to trust each other and to accept the passion that has been growing between them.  All the events have led to one night and a major showdown; it’s a do or die situation for Libby, Kale and the entire magical community.  When the morning comes who will have won the night and have the many secrets Kale kept from Libby ended any chance they have at a future together?

Take one sassy and take charge witch and one sexy and fierce warlock, stir well and you have a passion that will rock the magic community for a good long while which was the formula forThe Cat’s Meow.  The instant distrust at the same time as the instant attraction told me right off, this was going to be an interesting book.  Libby and Kale’s personalities were the exact opposites and it seemed so was their magic.  I loved watching as Libby began with an aggressive offense against what she believed Kale was really doing as much as I felt sorry for Kale trying to prove he was a good guy and not out to do anything to her while not being able to answer her many questions.  As the danger became clearer, I could tell that Libby and Kale were becoming much closer even with the trust issue.  I also loved how Libby was being given a chance to become an even more powerful enchantress with Kale’s help.  The night of the final battle, many of the answers became clear, which was both good and bad for Libby and Kale’s relationship.  They might have won the battle but I was so afraid that Kale and Libby had lost their war, but the night wasn’t over yet and I discovered that Kale was the master of many things – including the passion between him and Libby.

The Cat’s Meow was fast paced and a mixture of sass filled comments, a building passion with explosive potential, and a magical suspense – all of which had me wondering what each new page would bring.  I ended up reading this in one sitting (sleep is so overrated) because I just couldn’t wait to see what new thing would be introduced to Libby and Kale.  I had to Joyfully Recommend The Cat’s Meow because of the fulfilling plot line and the fact that the entire book had me smiling and laughing even when I want to shake my head in disgust at something that was going on.  It is a great addition to any magic library – on the lighthearted side – yes, even with the intense suspense, I found.
