Hump Day Excerpt: Darkest Ecstasy by Tawny Taylor

BY , AUGUST 27, 2014 | PERMALINK

It's Hump Dayyyy! It's a 4 Ys kind of day, folks. Today we've got a fun excerpt from Darkest Ecstasy by Tawny Taylor set in an ultra fancy BDSM club. And who better to play with at a BDSM club than a supernatural billionaire Dom who's destined to save the world? Talen "Tage" Garner is just that, and in this scene he proves he can get whatever he wants when he locks eyes on a long-legged beauty. Enjoy!

He had his quarry.

There. That one. The lush blonde in the black dress. She was perfect. Just the right combination of sweet temptation and seductive siren. Long legs. Full tits that made his mouth water. A hundred carnal promises glittering in her eyes.

Another man stepped up to her and set a hand on her shoulder. Her gaze flicked to the man, then back to Talen. Her lips curled in a sultry half smile.

Cover Breakdown: The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

BY DJ DeSmyter, AUGUST 27, 2014 | PERMALINK

The moment I saw the cover for The Miniaturist, I knew it would be perfect for our Cover Breakdown series, and as soon as you see it, you'll know why. I'm not usually big on Historical Fiction, but Jessie Burton's novel sounds like a mesmerizing read that may satisfy my need for a book as enchanting as Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus. Let's get started!

On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office–leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella's life changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist–an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways ...
