Hot Reviews and WordSwag How To

Jan 26 2015, 5:08 pm in , , , , ,

Under His Touch by Jeffe Kennedy Recommended Read!    Series: Falling Under     Summary: Amber Dolors knows better than to get involved with her boss. Devastatingly handsome in his sharp suits and sexy beyond belief, he possesses an air of command that fuels her darkest fantasies. But she's worked too hard to get this job, and keeping it will lead to a brilliant future. She won't cross that line—even if his way of giving orders and demanding her best performance gives her delicious warm shivers.A number of amazing reviews for Under His Touch came in over the weekend, so I’m doing a group post of them here.

Jennifer at Romance Novel News – who is @JenniferRNN on Twitter, tweeting live reads of smexy from fab to eye-bleeding (totally worth following her!) – gave the book such a lovely review. She says:

Under His Touch is one of the hottest books I’ve read of late. It also has a fantastic although angsty romance that made my heart happy. Alec is a bit of reluctant Dom, but one who falls fast and furiously. The age play scene could make some readers uncomfortable, but it fits Alec and Amber perfectly. This is one dirty book and I highly recommend it (as I do for all the books in this series).

Pansy Petal at the Jeep Diva, a first time reader of my books, said some amazing things in her review, like:

Amber had exuberance and was willing to go the extra mile to learn what Alec liked and wanted.  Alec had the maturity and experience to handle her, the way she wanted to be handled.  (And did he handle her! *sigh*)  I loved their roll play.  It was so hot!  All of it.

This is not the typical erotic office romance.  NOTHING happened in the office except professionalism and the job.  I had to respect that.  Outside of work however, once they got past the “this can’t work” thing, well . . . as I said, “HOT!”

To wrap up this trio, the Maldivian Book Reviewers, also first-time readers, called it a Great Read and said:

Alec is a hero that would drive most readers nuts, and all in a good way. His sexuality is one that is not all over the place, but yet the strength of it could be felt at the turn of every single page. Amber labeling his attire as suit porn was one I could definitely relate to. I couldn’t help but smile and fan myself a bit everytime Alec came into the picture. Yes ladies, he is that enchanting! And now imagine all that with a sexy British accent? Swoon!

Just love hearing the suit porn joy!

Finally, Angela Campbell asked me to visit her blog for her Marketing Monday feature. I’m talking about how to make WordSwag, so if you want to play, come on by!

Under His Touch In Your Hands!

It depends on how you parse ‘sexual interlude.’ Not to be Clintonesque about it. Many situations for me are sexually fraught while appearing to be nothing to anyone else. Watching you walk down the hall, for example. Or when you run barefoot onto the sidewalk and stop to pull on your heels, your hair falling over your face and your skirt riding up your lovely thighs. Very sexual.Release Day for Under His Touch!

“Kennedy’s novel has all the addictive tension and high-stakes passion that fans crave. Her main couple’s interactions are intense from the start, and she doesn’t shy away from either realistic details or dreamy fantasies. Best of all, she moves beyond their overwhelming physical passion to the emotions that drive them both, including the achingly real fears that threaten their happiness. As a result, this book is as touching as it is torrid. “

-RT Magazine, 4 1/2 stars!

Secret Tricks for Optimizing Research

B7RQx34IMAA_kTwTomorrow sees the release of Under His Touch, one of my contemporary erotic romances. The lovely ladies at That’s What I’m Talking About are hosting a Sunday Snippet from the book, if you care to check it out. It’s one of my favorite scenes in the book, when my very correct Brit hero just can’t quite stop himself from touching the heroine. A chaste caress, but oh, so fraught.

My favorite thing!

Okay, one of my favorite things…
