The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) 4.3 stars / 434 reviews READ ALL OF ELLE LOTHLORIEN'S CONTEMPORARY ROMANCES: *The Frog Prince *Alice in Wonderland *Sleeping Beauty *Sleeping Beauty Wakes Up(Alternate Ending) DESCRIPTION OF THE BESTSELLER: It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number of impending pandemics. But when Leigh finds out that the handsome "someone" at her great aunt's wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts--not that she was intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their genetic pedigree. (The extreme "bulldog underbite" that plagued them wasn't called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.) It doesn't matter that his family hasn't sat on a throne (other than the ones in their Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy. Their lives couldn't be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado? A handsome prince, gut-busting laughs, love, dirty ballroom dancing, pathetic commoners, sex factoids, Vienna palaces, cursing in German, random hilarity, little to no frogs. See why tens of thousands of readers have fallen in love with this Amazon bestseller! Because someday your prince will come...sort of. 2014-01-12 360 2166

He Wants You Back He Wants You Back 5.0 stars / 5 reviews Clarity is often born by way of chaos and confusion. For some a lifetime’s worth and others, one specific event. What if the chance was given to rewrite a certain questioned choice in life? Maybe the particular moment where life went wrong? As a confused accident victim, Cassandra Jonas is trying desperately to get back to the life she knew. With constant changes to her own reality, doubt is left in the wake of even the simplest of choice. Her doctors think seclusion with limited visitors is the most productive way of healing from her injuries, both physical and mental. However, even when things start to fall back into place, she is met with skepticism and deferred answers to what actually happened. Love seems to be the only constant in her ever changing life. Losing him once was painful enough, but to blow a second chance because of uncertainty was deemed senseless. She needed Gabe. He could tie together all the loose ends and they could continue down their once broken path of a happily ever after. The two of them together was undeniably the one solid fact of her now wavering world.Piecing together the past seems to be the easiest of tasks. Seeking validity for her recollections proves to be the much greater challenge. Strangers and acquaintances alike disorient her memories. Forcing the grip on her desired perceptions to tighten, in hopes of maintaining some sort of sanity. Through pain and pleasure, Cass climbs her way back to the present. Learning that the mind has the capability to construct individual versions of reality. Versions that however deeply believed, once proven false, struggle to survive. 2013-09-01 148 625671

Its alleged capabilities include the manipulation of matter, space-time, and even the fabric of reality itself. Wearying of this practical joke, Russell finally demands proof.

PANTHER LEGACY (A TWO BOOK VOLUME) PANTHER LEGACY (A TWO BOOK VOLUME) 5.0 stars / 3 reviews Panther Legacy contains two volumes: THE PANTHER AND THE PEARL, an historical romance set during 1885 in the Ottoman Empire of Turkey, first printed in 1994, and its sequel, Panther's Prey, set in the same location ten years later and released in 1996. The main characters of the first book reappear in the second book but in lesser roles as the central story is carried by a subsequent pair of lovers. Both stories are very erotic and atmospheric historicals, immersed in the male dominated culture of Turkey at the time. That area of the world was then controlled by local rulers called Sultans and their lesser lieutenants, called Pashas, both absolute despots ruling their districts with iron hands. In The Panther and the Pearl, Sarah Woolcott is a Boston schoolteacher visiting a relative in Turkey in the late nineteenth century. By a combination of circumstances you'll find only in fiction, Sarah is purchased by the Pasha of Bursa, Kalid Shah. He is a young, Oxford educated district governor, the child of a local pasha and a captive British mother, who takes a fancy to Sarah when he sees her during a state visit to his boss, the Sultan. Sarah is outraged when she is drugged and kidnapped and wakes up to find herself the property of this seductive stranger, installed in his harem as the ikbal, the favorite, and expected to accept her fate as his new sex toy. While she fights him tooth and nail and pursues every avenue to obtain her release, at the same time she is drawn to him inexorably as he proves to be as intelligent, charming and sexy as he is handsome. What results is a battle of wits which drives them both to distraction, as she refuses to submit to his imperious commands and he ignores his stable of submissive beauties to chase the American woman who wants nothing to do with him. How Sarah winds up turning the tables on her dictatorial lover and finally bringing him to heel makes for an entertaining and highly sensual story.PANTHER'S PREY , the sequel to THE PANTHER AND THE PEARL , takes place ten years later in the same district of Bursa, where the ward of Sarah Woolcott's cousin is abducted by Turkish rebels seeking to overthrow the same Sultan in power when Sarah first arrived in Turkey. She is now married to Kalid Shah and living with him and their three children at Orchid Palace in Bursa. Shah is in sympathy with the rebels and allies himself with Malik Bey, the brother of a character in the first book. Bey is a wanted fugitive, the leader of the insurgents. Bey takes Sarah's cousin, Amelia Ryder, from her traveling coach by force in order to sell her into slavery to finance his anti-government activities. Amelia is as defiant and feisty as Sarah was a decade earlier, however, and as she tries repeatedly to get away from Bey's camp and back to her family she and the rebel leader grow fascinated with one another. She learns about Bey's past and his cause and helps him when his lieutenant and best friend is wounded. As time passes they share a compelling physical attraction which soon grows into an undeniable, unbreakable bond. Bey, young and handsome himself, is besotted with pretty blonde Amelia. He can't keep his hands off her, despite his best efforts to put the revolution first and his feelings second, and decides finally that he cannot sell her. He makes a deal to release her to Shah just as she realizes that his cause is just and, even more shocking, that she really doesn't want to get away from him. As Bey works with Shah to remove the Turkish dictator and replace him with an elected legislature, Bey is arrested and condemned by a desperate Sultan and Amelia joins forces with Kalid and Sarah to save his life. How Bey triumphs in the end and gets both a new government and the girl makes for a satisfying and sensual read. I hope you enjoy reading these books as much as I enjoyed writing them. 2012-08-16 491 1455

Constant Rain (An Adult Novella of Unlikely, Forbidden Romance) Constant Rain (An Adult Novella of Unlikely, Forbidden Romance) 5.0 stars / 1 reviews Please Note: Due to limited but explicit sexual content and language, this novella is for adults only._______________________________________Lorraine Manning, “Rain” to her friends, is the bartender at Jake’s Lakeside Tavern. She’s in her early twenties, attractive, friendly, witty, strong. Enrolled in a Physician’s Assistant program, Rain has little time for a social life between her studies and working at Jake’s. Although many are attracted to her, she has not found herself truly interested in anyone in a romantic way.Charlie Luck is a man who has been drifting half-alive, since the death of his wife of 28 years, followed a year later by that of his 23-year-old son (their only child). Charlie is in his early fifties with rugged good looks and is in extraordinarily good physical condition. He appears quiet and unassuming, but there is much more beneath the surface.Charlie doesn’t really notice Rain as anything more than an attractive, friendly young woman initially, but something begins to happen to him as he gets to know her better. He has not been attracted to any woman since losing his wife and he is deeply troubled by whatever the feelings are that he is developing for Rain, particularly due to the age difference.After closing one night, Rain runs into trouble with three drunks who begin to sexually assault her in the parking lot. Charlie, who lives in an upstairs room at the tavern, shows up amid questions about what he could possibly do to help Rain. After trying to talk the three louts down while they berate him as an old man and worse, Charlie is forced to turn physical and quickly ends the situation employing what appear to be special forces skills. From that night on, Rain always feels completely safe around Charlie and begins to realize there is much more to him than just a nice, hardworking guy. Leaving the bar on a beautiful full-moon night, Rain hears Charlie on his upstairs deck playing guitar and singing. After learning that Rain is watching from the darkness, he offers her a beer if she’ll sing with him. The two drink, sing, and laugh for hours, while the soft moonlight dissolves the age gulf that lies between them, albeit temporarily. While Rain and Charlie are setting up for an offsite party at a lodge, they become stranded there by a 100-year storm. Through an unusual series of events and revelations that take place at the lodge, the two wind up sharing an unexpected but very special sexual experience. The relationship grows and Rain and Charlie pursue a host of exciting activities in addition to the sex, although they keep the nature of the relationship to themselves as much as possible. But Charlie’s concerns over Rain’s long-term well being with “a man who can give her only half a life,” eventually cause him to leave abruptly, resulting in great pain for both of them.When they meet again, unexpectedly, five years later, the situation has inexplicably become even more complicated and potentially painful—and Rain and Charlie are faced with another gut-wrenching decision. 2014-03-07 114 597072

Please, Sir? I love you! Just who is grooming whom? Please, Sir? I love you! Just who is grooming whom? 5.0 stars / 1 reviews Ellie fancies Dr. Mike like crazy and has done since she was fourteen. Dr. Mike has his name on the door, a briefcase full of dog-eared essays, a mortgage, a pudding of a wife, itching hell-fire in his loins and another twenty years to do before he gets his pension.Cue mid-life crisis in a spectacular form. Beautiful and beguiling Ellie comes to see him privately to say she's afraid that her step-father is going to molest her. She is proved right. The stage is set.But who grooms whom?Written some years before the recent case of the British teacher and his pupil eloping to Bordeaux, this nevertheless resonates and proves there's nothing new under the sun - or in the classroom. A beautifully crafted trial scene is followed by the 'release' of an elopement to a place without Time or Intrusions. But can runaways really run away? This very brave novel, confronting one of the final taboos of our time, challenges the assumptions we usually make in this situation in an intelligent, thoughtful, forthright and very humorous way. The fact that it is 'forthright' causes the author to attach to this book what he (tongue in cheek) likes to call a FILTH WARNING - there are rude bits on every other page. You have been warned!! 2013-12-28 366 1460696
