Masks of a Tiger by Doris O'Connor

Ah, the book I've been waiting for!!

I read the first 2 of Doris Club Ink series, and loved them. I kind of fell for one of the characters, Grisha. And the third in the Club Ink series, 'Masks of a Tiger', was all about him!

I fully expected to love this book, and I did. It was great. I really seen a different side (kind of) to Grisha, and I love him, love him, LOVE HIM!! Also, the guy on the cover is rather hot too!!

In real life, the whole BDSM thing isn't for me (but I'm sure if Grisha demanded me over his knee, I'd do as he told lol), but I love Doris book!

The Sex scenes were hot, and there were parts where I really felt for Grisha and Neeve, when you read it you will know what I mean.

Another fab one, you go girl!!!! And hopefully not the last in the series?

Innocent Foxes by Torey Hayden

Abundance, Montana, once a lively mining town in the days of the wild west, is now not much more than a ghost town. Local girl, Dixie, a struggling single mother who has just lost her baby, tries to make ends meet while her feckless boyfriend Billy drifts from one job to another, always believing his next moneymaking scheme will be the winner. Above them in the magnificent mountains surrounding Abundance, jaded Hollywood actor Spencer Scott conceals himself from the paparazzi on the ranch that has been his pristine sanctuary until the arrival of his obnoxious, nine-year-old son. Then Billy puts into motion a plan almost too appalling to contemplate, and from which there is no escape. As all four are forced to confront the brutal reality of the Montana mountains, so too are they forced to face their damaged lives in this poignant new novel

I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

I have been a big Tory Hayden fan for a long time and have read all of her other books, her 2 other Novels were big favorites of mine. But since Tory hadn't released anything fora while, I was a little skeptical, even more so when I saw the cover. Torey's name is splayed across the front cover in massive letters, whilst the books name is underneath in small writing. This made me worry she was having to get her name so big on there to get people interested in the book.


I actually really enjoyed this! Took a while to get through it at first as i was busy reading other stuff, but once I picked this up properly, I loved every minute of it.

I loved the relationship between Dixie and Tennessee (or 'Joker' as she calls him), you could tell she wanted to take care of him and try her damned hardest to keep him safe. Billy was an ass, I would have killed him long ago if I was Dixie!

The bit I particularity likes was the scene between Spencer and Guff in the forest. If you've read it you'll know what bit I mean. The conversation was beautiful, the apologies and the love you felt between the 2 were great. This was my favorite bit of the book.

All in all this was another great book from Ms Hayden!

A good few erotic shorts

Lately I'm really getting into the erotic story genre. So I picked up a few freebies from breathlesspress.com and Amazon. All of which were some great reads (exception of Fifty Shades of Red Riding Hood which was nothing special). I'd recommend you head off to grab them while they're free!!!

Fifty Shades of Red Riding Hood by R.R Hood
It was a romance that the world would never understand. He was a big bad wolf; she was just a young woman with no self-respect.
