Phenomenal Review for Devon’s Pair

DevonsPair72LGPowertools Book 4will be here in just eleven more days!  But Didi at Guilty Pleasure Reviews got her hands on it a little bit early 🙂  Here are a few snippets from her phenomenal review.  For the whole thing check out the link to her site.

5 Stars from Didi at Guilty Pleasure Reviews, “HOLY SMOKIN’ MENAGE!!!! It always amazes me how even when Jayne Rylon is pushing my “comfort zone” with one of her smokin’ hot sex scenes, she never fails in getting me all hot & bothered and making it where I can’t put the book down.  This is a short story, but length does not take away from the smokin’ hot sex and the emotional turmoil between Neil, James and Devon. IMO this is one of the most emotionally beautiful stories of the series, the connection between Neil, James and Devon is soo strong it’s believable, as are the feelings of despair and jealousy that come up.  And that naughty, evil Jayne…left us with a hell of an ending!! Thankfully it’s not the end of the series, like I thought. I strongly recommend reading Power Tools in order to be able to get the whole dynamic of this group of friends/lovers, they are all novellas. WARNING: You need to be open to menages in any number of variations ;-)”

James has watched each of the crew fall in love, one by one, until only he and his life partner Neil remain “unattached”.  So, when he sees the way his bisexual boyfriend is checking out their new apprentice, he’s sure he’s doomed to lose the man of his dreams.  His love is strong enough that he would let go to ensure Neil’s happiness.  Instead, sparks fly between the three of them and he realizes he might not have to surrender because his boyfriend’s girlfriend is becoming his girlfriend, too.

Free For All – New Cover Art!

freeforall_FINALHello everyone, I hope you’re surviving the holiday insanity.  I’m thrilled to say I got an early Christmas present today in the form of a gorgeous new cover.  This one is for Red Light #4, Free For All.  For all of you Star & Rick fans, I think you’ll be pleased with the HEA in this book, which is why it will be releasing in the regular Ellora’s Cave line instead of the Exotika line.  Woohoo!  Anyone recognize the model who got cast as Rick?  Yep, it’s our friend Alex the Caveman who was as charming and gracious as he is handsome when we met him at Romanticon.  I couldn’t love the cover any more!  I’m not sure on the release date yet but I’ll shout it out as soon as I know.  In the meantime, here’s a little bit about the book 🙂  Happy reading!

After an amazing courtship filled with nights steamy enough to thaw the lingering winter chill, Sarah is finally beginning to believe she might have found the one man on earth who can support her career as a sex worker in Amsterdam’s Red Light district.  But when she asks around, it’s clear Rick isn’t taking advantage of the freedom their open relationship offers. None of the sexiest girls in the district have serviced him for months.  Not even Mari, a previous favorite.

Afraid of losing the star of her nice and extra naughty dreams, Sarah confronts her boyfriend about his change of heart.  Rick confesses he’s no longer interested in wild times without her.  Instead, he’d like to try experimenting with multiple partners, show off his sexy woman and revel in the company of like-minded hedonists.  Fortunately, he knows just the place for a debauched experience wicked enough to make even an experienced hooker blush.

A sexual free for all is on the menu at one of Amsterdam’s infamous swinger’s clubs.  Will it satisfy their hunger?
