Poems From The Refuge For Valentine’s Day

By Cynthia Sax on February 14, 2018

Some of the males at the Refuge wrote poems.
They were supposed to be romantic poems for Valentine’s Day.
The males didn’t completely grasp the concept.
They’re warriors, not poets.

This is the poem from Balvan, the hero of Dark Strength.

Here’s the poem from Orol, the hero of Dark Flight.

I tried to talk Kralj, the hero of Dark Thoughts, into writing a poem.
I wasn’t successful.

Dark Strength Alien Romance

Dark Strength

The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall.

Balvan, the Refuge’s Gatekeeper, is huge, green, and has a reputation for crushing skulls. He’s a modified humanoid, genetically designed to be the ultimate warrior. One of a kind and considered monstrous by many, he never expects to find his mate, the one female meant for him.

Elyce, snatched from her home half a solar cycle ago, has finally escaped her brutal captors. She arrives at the Refuge barely alive. Only a blood transfusion from the largest male she has ever seen will save her life. But it will also bind her to him forever. Staring up, up, up at him, she wonders why she wants to be free. His gentle touch revives yearnings she thought dead. His lips set her skin ablaze. His massive muscles make her feel safe.

That feeling could be an illusion. Elyce’s captors want their slave back and they won’t stop until they have her. To give his mate her freedom, Balvan might be forced to give up everything he has – his role as the Gatekeeper, Elyce’s love, and his life.

Dark Strength is a STANDALONE Alien SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, sometimes violent universe.

The Good Assistant And Next Contemporary Romance Stories

By Cynthia Sax on November 12, 2015

I have great news! Originally, I had planned to release Seducing My Billionaire Boss, the follow up standalone story to The Good Assistant and One Night With My Billionaire Master, as a single story (the cover is below).

However, I was approached to contribute a story to a boxed set. This boxed set will be sold for 99 cents, the same price as my single stories. So I figured I’d add Seducing My Billionaire Boss to the boxed set. You’ll receive this story and several others for 99 cents. Yes, that’s a bargain! I’m all about value for my reading buddies.

Seducing My Billionaire Boss will feature Robert Reyes. Logan Ross mentions him in One Night With My Billionaire Master. Robert is the friend who contributes a donation to Arianna’s charity. Robert is also the CFO of Powers Corporation, John Powers’ company (John Powers is the hero in The Good Assistant).

I also have a short story (30 pages long) appearing in another boxed set in January and a novella (100 pages) releasing in March. I’ll give you more details (buy links, etc) once I have them.

My boss, John Powers, represents everything I want in a man. He’s the CEO and founder of a powerful company, that position having made him a billionaire, striking in an I-survived-a-bar-brawl sort of way, and too clever for my sanity.

I’m his assistant and desperately in love with him. I’d willingly serve him both in the boardroom and in the bedroom.

There’s one problem.

He doesn’t mix business with pleasure.

Sinful Rewards 5-This Series Is An Addiction

By Cynthia Sax on November 26, 2014

Fresh Fiction shares…

“SINFUL REWARDS 5 is a beautiful, touching, tender book; I really experienced Bee’s pain and conflict, and rejoiced when she was free and happy. How wonderful when an author infuses a character with so much life, that she is able to make us care so much about a fictional character that we wish we could hug Bee and console her. Superb!”

Nicolas Rainer, Chicago’s most sought-after billionaire bachelor, has finally decided what he wants, and that’s Bee Carter in his arms, forever. He shows up unannounced on her doorstep and kisses her until her toes curl and her body burns.

Nicolas wasn’t the sexy man Bee expected to see this morning. Hawke Masters, her tattooed former marine, is riding his customized chopper toward the condo building, anticipating an equally mind-meltingly erotic encounter.

Both men want her with a thrilling intensity. Neither her billionaire nor her biker wishes to share her affections. Is today the day Bee is forced to choose?

Dancing For Him

By Cynthia Sax on August 29, 2014

This post has adult content. If you are under the age of eighteen years old or sensitive to adult language/situations, please do not read this post.

I snapped these photos of a dancer at a Vegas club. She reminds me SO much of Bee, the heroine from Sinful Rewards. She has long brown hair, brown eyes, has a slender build. She’s also vertically challenged. (grins) She’s wearing super high-heeled boots and only takes up a fraction of the frame.

Here is a spicy excerpt from Sinful Rewards 2.


This Vegas dancer looks like Bee

It’s my turn to dance. I peek between the red velvet curtains, excitement shimmering over my bare arms and legs. The stage is quiet and dark, the spotlight focused on the all-male audience. Many of the men seated at the tables appear familiar. I’ve glimpsed their faces on the bus or city streets. My fingers tremble, entwining with the curtain’s fringe. Tonight, they’ll watch me, lust after me, but only one man will have me.

That man lounges in a chair positioned in front of the stage. The lights shine on Hawke’s short brown hair. Stubble covers his tanned cheeks. He’s dressed all in black, his leather jacket partially concealing his T-shirt-covered chest, his jeans the darkest dark. He’s big and fierce and I will make him mine.

I’ll dance for Hawke, showing him why he should desire me and no one else, why he should stay and never leave. He’ll no longer drift from town to town, from job to job, avoiding commitment. I’ll be good enough, sexy enough, worthy of his love, of his forever. He’ll care too much to ever abandon me.

A pulse of sound breaks the eerie silence, a low-drumming tempo echoing the pounding of my heart, the bass felt down to my toes. This club beat grows louder and louder, the rhythm fierce, tribal, sexy. Streams of blue light crisscross the stage, illuminating the audience. Men stamp their feet and pound the wooden tabletops with their fists, voicing their demands.

She's also vertically challenged!

They want me. Anticipation tightens my nipples, the taut flesh pressing against the white lace of my bra. They want me to dance for them, to strip off my clothes, to reveal every inch of my body.

Eager to give my audience what they clamor for, I push through the curtains and strut on stage, my head held high, one rhinestone-covered shoe placed in front of the other, my spindly heels ringing on the wood, the tempo matching the thumping bass of my music.

The audience goes wild, hooting and hollering. They like what they see. My sheer white babydoll billows behind me, my skimpy lace bra and G-string panties showing through the fabric. My hair, pulled into a high ponytail, bounces against my shoulders. My hips sway and my breasts jiggle.

Hawke leans forward, open admiration lighting his rugged face. As I pass his chair, I flick the hem of my babydoll, giving him a glimpse of my tight ass. He inhales sharply, the sound heard over the music. Men whistle their appreciation.

I stride to the edge of the stage, pivot, and retrace my steps. Hawke watches me, his gaze on my bare legs, his pale blue eyes shining. He knows I’m returning to him. He knows he’s the man I dance for.

And she’s coming to realize that beneath her peaches-and-cream exterior beats a heart that longs to play out all of her most secret fantasies.

As the stakes are raised again, will Bee succumb to the sensual allure of this latest dare?

Interview With Sara Jane Stone

By Cynthia Sax on July 1, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Sara Jane Stone for a short interview. Sara Jane Stone’s latest release is Full Exposure, a sexy Contemporary.

Cynthia Sax: What excites you about Full Exposure?

Sara Jane Stone: Two words—adventure and sex. Georgia, the twenty-six year old heroine who recently returned from serving her country in Afghanistan, craves both. She is a little wild, but very strong. And she is more than willing to go after what she wants . . .

Cynthia Sax: What is your favorite line from Full Exposure?

Sara Jane Stone: I have two. Actually, I had a lot more, but I narrowed it down to two.

First one: “Truth or dare.” Because every red-hot romance should have a super-sexy game of truth or dare on the beach.

Second: “I am strong. Don’t you dare doubt that.” Georgia says these words to Eric when he finds her surfacing from a nightmare. One of the things I love about Georgia is her strength. She fought for her country and is suffering from PTSD, but she does not allow that to define her.

Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Full Exposure?

Sara Jane Stone: I was rocking my daughter to sleep—waiting for the moment I could place her in her crib and she would not wake up screaming—and reading the news on my iPhone. A headline about soldiers returning home from war caught my eye. I love reading and writing about military heroes, so I clicked through and started reading. But the part that grabbed my attention, the quotes I couldn’t forget, were from a twenty-something woman who’d served her country and returned home with a burning need to live, to not let going to war be her last great adventure. Her words haunted me and I started reading all the first-hand accounts I could find of women veterans. And bit by bit characters started forming in my head, and I stared writing.

Cynthia Sax: Where is Full Exposure set?

Sara Jane Stone:
FULL EXPOSURE is set in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, in the heart of timber country. I needed a strong, Alpha hero for my war-veteran heroine and I wanted the setting to play a role in the story. Eric Moore owes the largest timber operation in the state. And while he spends most of his days wearing suits (that Georgia longs to take off), he is not above working along side his crew. When a forest fire stars on his land, he is out there wielding a chainsaw side by side with his employees to cut a line and keep the flames from spreading. And this forest fire becomes a key plot point for the story.

Oregon’s Willamette Valley also provided lots of opportunities for Georgia to seek adventures. There’s lots of wide open space for a girl to take her boss to dinner on four-wheelers—and bring along a bow and arrow. The imaginary town of Independence Falls, Oregon is also a short drive to the coast, where my hero happens to own a condo with a hot tub. What better setting for a the hero and heroine to explore their desires, removed from the day-to-day reminders of the reasons they shouldn’t cross that line?

Thank you, Sara Jane Stone, for joining us today!

No touching allowed …

After serving her country, Georgia Trulane craves adventure—and sex. She’s set her sights on her brother’s best friend—now her boss, since she took a temporary job as his nephew’s live-in nanny. Only problem? Eric refuses to touch her. That doesn’t stop Georgia from seducing him. But an earth-shattering encounter leaves her fully exposed, body and soul.

Eric has a long list of reasons to steer clear of the woman he has wanted for as long as he can remember. For one, he refuses to be her next thrill ride. When he claims her, it will be for good. But the attraction is undeniable, and the more they fight it, the stronger it pulls. But will it be enough to conquer their obstacles?

Interview With Tina Donahue

By Cynthia Sax on March 8, 2014

I sat down (virtually) with Tina Donahue for a short interview. Tina Donahue writes hot, hot, HOT erotic romances and her latest release is Stolen Desire, book four in the Outlawed Realm series.

Cynthia Sax: What makes Zekin, your hero, so dang sexy?

Tina Donahue: Zekin’s commanding but also tender when it comes to Paige. I’m all for Alpha heroes, but not the kind we used to see in romances. Brooding. Snarling. Always in a freaking bad mood. Makes you want to smack them upside the head and yell, “Chill out!”

I like a man with integrity, honor, and a soul. A great sense of humor is also good. Although Zekin comes from a world that doesn’t allow emotion, he gets playful with Paige. In other words, he’s fun to be with even outside of bed.

To me, the sexiest thing a man can do is listen to a woman and understand where she’s coming from. It’s not always about sex. Zekin makes that very clear in how he responds to Paige throughout the story. J

Cynthia Sax: What excites you about Stolen Desire?

Tina Donahue: I loved creating another world. Generally speaking, I’m not into sci-fi, but I did love Avatar. I’ve seen it numerous times and still marvel at the world the artists and writer created.

I wanted to do the same with Stolen Desire. To provide a sense of wonder and danger which bonds Zekin and Paige in their struggle to survive. Exciting and romantic stuff.

Cynthia Sax: Where did you get the idea for Stolen Desire?

Tina Donahue: Stolen Desire is book four of my Outlawed Realm series. Each book begins the story of new characters with the others from earlier books making ‘guest’ appearances. The series involves the five dimensions on earth – realms that are all inhabited, but the people don’t see each other because of time differentials.

E1 is earth as we know it. E2 is beneath it where the people are so advanced there isn’t illness any longer, nor is there desire. It’s been outlawed. E3 is the land of the dead. E4 is a dimension of jungles and twilight where the rulers of E2 have built a pleasure palace where they house pleasure slaves for their carnal use. E5 is the land of ice and fire. Ice because it’s the furthest dimension from the sun. Fire, because it’s also the closest to the earth’s core.

In Stolen Desire, I wanted to explore E5. What happens when a young woman from Seattle is abducted and brought there by a guard from E2 for his use as a pleasure slave. It all started rolling from there.

Cynthia Sax: What causes problems between Paige and Zekin?

Tina Donahue:
First, they’re from different realms. Paige comes from Seattle, earth as we know it. Zekin is from E2 where feelings have been outlawed. Everything’s uniform, the men all resemble each other. There’s no difference between the women’s appearances, they’re all the same. The rulers have manipulated DNA to create perfect specimens. To eliminate risk, hunger, war. A flawless and stifling society. Paige is a wonder to Zekin. Her inner fire thrills him.

However, he feels they have no future. He can’t live in her dimension and she can’t very well stay with him on E5, a prison colony built by the rulers on E2. His goal is to bring her home. Her goal is to see that they remain together. That, coupled with the threat of guards and E2’s rulers keeps things hopping.

Thank you, Tina Donahue, for joining us today!

Her freedom depends on one man. A criminal to his realm…

Outlawed Realm, Book 4

One minute, Paige Ross is outside a Seattle bar, grieving a failed engagement. The next, she jerks awake in a weird, candlelit room with velvet walls, black silk sheets, and a man who motions for silence.

Paige has little choice but to trust the powerful stranger who promises a way out of what looks like Satan’s brothel. And pray his promise to keep her safe is as real as the heat burning in his eyes.

Banished from E2’s ruling elite for supposed crimes against the realm, Zekin risks everything to rescue those brought to E5 for the guards’ carnal pleasure. Paige will be leaving this inhospitable realm of fire and ice—if he can somehow forget the way her trembling body melts in his arms.

Safe—temporarily—in an underwater world populated by strange creatures, Paige’s sexual awakening explodes into an unquenchable need that consumes them both. But the guards will be looking for her. And Zekin’s plan to send her home is a dangerous journey she cannot—will not—take without him.

Product Warnings

Scorching-hot sex and loads of aching tenderness between a drool-worthy hunk who’s determined to do the right thing and a woman who’s not about to give him up.
