Trailer: Indecent Seduction by Kayla Star out now!!

Indecent Seduction was released on the 25th of February. Already it's having a big impact, it even beat 'Fifty Shades of Grey' last night on Amazon Spain in the 'Best Sellers in Erotica' in English section!


Warning: Explicit Sexual content 

When Olivia's husband of eight years walks out on her for a younger woman, she is left devastated. She seeks solace in the form of an online relationship with an Italian man who calls himself 'Romeo'. 

Although she agrees to speak to him on Skype, there is always some excuse why he does not show himself on camera to her, although she does get to hear his sultry voice. Despite being frustrated by this, she finds herself falling for his charms. One evening after a couple of glasses of wine, she ends up undressing on the webcam for him and pleasuring herself by engaging in something she's never tried before, cybersex, which enables her to reach the dizzy heights of rapture. A feeling so erotic, powerful, and comforting, that she keeps yearning for more to sooth her emotional pain. 

The cybersex starts to become an addiction as she begins to lose touch with reality. But is Romeo who he says he is, and will she finally get to meet her Latin lothario?

Under a Hot Sicilian Sun Excerpt

She wrapped her large beach towel around herself and came above deck to find Dante had already changed into a pair of white swimming trunks. She held her breath when she saw his tanned, trim body. He had a smattering of black hair on his chest and looked very muscular. His chest was broad, and she longed to run her fingers over its contours and lay her head on it. She inhaled, exhaled, and tried to keep her composure.

“Come on, Joanne,” he teased.“Drop the towel.” His chocolate brown eyes glinted devilishly.

She let her towel fall to the floor and watched as his eyes widened with desire.

“Mamma Mia. Why do you fear showing your body to me? You are beautiful…and that gold chain around your stomach, it makes you look very sexy…”

No one had ever called her sexy before, ever. Her mouth dry, she licked her lips.
“I haven’t let a man see me in a bikini for years, Dante. I’m not as slim as I used to be.”

“No, no, Joanne. To me you look fabulous. I love your curves. They suit you. A man needs somewhere comfortable to land.” He laughed, making her laugh too, and it helped to ease her heightened nerves. He pecked her on the cheek and then, much to her astonishment, he turned, walked to the side of the boat, climbed on the edge, and dived into the water, sending up a huge splash of sea spray.
She stood and peered overboard but couldn’t see him for a few seconds; her heart thudded. Where had he gone? Then there was a splash as he emerged and wiped the water out of his eyes, laughing and bobbing up and down in the water. 

“Come on in here, join me please, Joanne,” he urged. She hadn’t been expecting this at all.
Gingerly she sat on the side of the boat. “Will you help me into the water?” She bit her lip.
“Of course, amore mio. Jump to me, I will catch you.”
She closed her eyes and with blind faith threw herself into his arms. For a moment the combined weight made them dip under water and she began to panic a little. Then they were fully submerged, and eventually returned to the surface, bobbing up and down. There was a small ladder at the side of the boat she could cling to if she wanted to and that reassured her somehow. Who could fail to feel safe with Dante around?
“But…but…where are we?” she spluttered.
“Joanne, we are only just off the coastline of Sicily. Over there are the Aeolian Islands.” He pointed and she made out some dark shapes in the distance. “We shall have a little swim here, rest later, and eat too. Then I am going to sail the boat over to one of them. It’s called Lipari and it’s the largest island, it’s volcanic. The food there is out of this world.”
“You are full of surprises, Dante.”
“I know.” He smiled and drew her close to him, stroked her face, and then pressed his lips down on hers, stealing her breath away as his tongue danced with hers. “Like that you mean?” he asked, drawing away.
She nodded. “Yes.”
“And like this?” He wrapped his arms around her and untied her bikini top. She gasped at his cheek and watched as he spun it around his head and tossed it aboard the boat.
“What did you do that for?” She blinked several times.
“Because you have a beauty, Joanne, that needs to be admired.” He cupped a breast in his hand and lowered his head to suckle. She groaned as a tingle of desire coursed around her body. “Please do not worry, there is no one to see us here like this.”
He pushed her up against the boat; the water was so clear, so aquamarine and warmer than she thought, though that might have been because he had switched on her button of desire. There were some fish swimming down below in among the fronds and rocks. She gazed in awe.
“Yes, this is a good place to catch fish, Joanne. I have been scuba diving here. You should join me sometime.”

She laughed. “I think this is as much of the ocean I can stand, Dante. I’m not a strong swimmer.”
He ran a wet finger along her cheek. “Ah, you are frightened, I can see that, but you need not be when you are with me. I can teach you about so many things.”
She shivered; without a doubt, there were many things Dante Alphonso could teach her, not least of all love-making. He was her tutor and she was about to become a very willing student...

Review of: 'Sticks and Stones' written by Thea Hartley

The second in a series of crime fiction books, [the first being Kith and Kill], Ms. Hartley steps up the intrigue here. People are being poisoned and the police are baffled as there is no obvious motive or connection between victims.

So who is doing it and why?

Resa James, a criminal psychologist and specialist in Victimology, becomes embroiled in all these cases. Especially so, when a member of her own family is targeted and put in danger of her own life as a result.

It’s all too close to home, literally.

What I love about this novel is the continuing romance between Resa and Superintendent Mike Thompson and her own up and down relationship with teenage daughter, Laura. Adding touches of humour to the plot is Resa’s mother Edna. Who appears to be acting like a teenager herself as love blossoms for the senior citizen. Edna’s off the wall quips made me smile at times, adding warmth and humour to a story with a serious subject matter, murder!

Ms. Hartley writes with so much heart and soul that I can hear the characters’ voices in my head and see the scenes unfold before me as she builds up the suspense and takes the reader on a roller coaster of a ride. I love the way she has interwoven witchcraft and herbal poisons into the plot. Not your average plot granted but then again, Thea Hartley is no average writer! She’s one to watch out for in the future.

This is one novel you won’t want to miss out on. Highly recommended!

The Counterfeit Wife by Thea Hartley

In this dark, gothic tale, there are many disturbing secrets.  Mara marries a man who is unable to love and that man is her boss, Edmund De Quintin.  
She yearns to change him but finds in her frustration that she turns to someone else...her wedding planner, Tasha.  Mara tries her best to forge a relationship with her cold-hearted husband but spends hot nights in bed with Tara.  After all, there is only so much rejection a woman can take.
One night, she and Tara discover a hidden BDSM dungeon at the manor house and the truth about her husband and his family is about to be revealed...
Mara's love has put her life in danger.  Can she survive the secret and who will come to her rescue?  Or is it too late?
There are so many twists and turns and dark secrets in this gem of a novel.  It's like opening a box of 'Black Magic' - who knows the secrets of the black magic box?  
Bite into those centres and you get a myriad of tastes: there's Midnight Truffle, Hazelnut Swirl, Coffee Crescent, Almond Crunch, Pure Black Magic amongst the flavours.  What I'm saying is that this is a bitter sweet story.  On the one hand there's Mara's constant yearning for the unrequited love of her husband, on the other, there's her passionate affair with the wedding planner, and on the other, [if there were three hands] a box full of secrets...ready to unfold.
This is a well-written story that takes the reader through the multi-layers of the chocolate box, where each individual chocolate has to be tasted and savoured before the box is emptied.
Who indeed knows the story of the Black Magic Box?  You decide!
Highly recommended!
