Blushing Books wants to wish you a sweet, sexy and very steamy Valentine’s Day. Your ebook readers will be fogging up for sure when you download your copy of With Hearts Aflame.

Maren Smith has a very sweet addition to the bundle in her fourth Master’s of the Castle book, Sweet Sinclair and no- there is nothing vanilla about it!

Now keeping with our Sweet Spot theme, we’ve asked Maren a couple questions.

What do you think is the “SWEETEST” part about writing in a group as you’ve done?

The sweetest part is that writing in a boxed set like this allows you to reach out to readers who might avidly follow one author, but who might not have tried the others yet. It also allows you to get to know the authors whose work you’ve been reading for years. I’ve really enjoyed working with Patty, Maddie and Dinah. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

And what is the sweetest thing about Robin Smith?

Robin Smith is my sister in real life. We live together. Our desks are about ten feet apart, separated off the main living room by a barricade of tall and thoroughly overloaded bookcases. The sweetest thing about her is that when she moved in, she brought all her really cool reference books with her. 🙂  Plus, she takes me out for curry upon occasion.

 

And how about Behtany? What is the sweetest thing about Bethany?

I’ve been one of Bethany’s authors for a long time now and I can honestly say, one of her sweetest qualities (and she has many) is how quick she is to work with you when, say—hypothetically, mind you—a certain author (who shall remain nameless) exceeds both the intended word count and the deadline for when a certain Valentine’s themed story (which shall also remain nameless) was supposed to be submitted.

 

 

 

Since a competing sweet shop opened its doors, things have not gone well for Sinclair’s candy shop, Maybe’s Candy. Business was slowing, her finances were dropping, and no matter what she does she just can’t think of any way to get her business back on top. Even the one highlight of her week—that moment when handsome Parker Johnson, a man she’d been flirting with for over a year, came to buy his usual bag of caramels—even that wasn’t much of a treat. How could it be when Sinclair already knew something was wrong with him? She couldn’t quite put her finger on what it was—was he married, gay, a homicidal maniac?—but a guy didn’t show this much interest in a girl without asking her out, at least not without a good reason. And Parker most definitely has not asked her out.

 Then, an unexpected ray of good luck: From out of the blue, she’s offered a job. All she has to do is cater a candy party—one day, 900 people, and her store would be financially set all the way through summer. The only catch? The venue is a place called the Castle, a fantasy BDSM resort inhabited by some of the hottest Masters she has ever met. And one of them just happens to be Parker, the same man she’s been drooling over for the last year.

 What a coincidence! Or is it? Sinclair always knew there was something wrong with him. What she didn’t know, was how he could make WRONG feel so wonderfully RIGHT.

Master My Love” by Maddie Taylor

When a mysterious invitation to a new BDSM club arrives in Valerie Thornton’s mailbox, she sees it as a fateful intervention. She has long suppressed her desire for a strong man who can nurture her inner-most desires and bring the submissive inside her to life. Now widowed with an empty nest, she’s alone, unfulfilled and wondering what she’s been missing.

Walking into the most exclusive club in LA all alone, Valerie almost loses her nerve, but the testosterone-filled atmosphere is pure temptation. Each dominant man she sees is sexier and more handsome than the last. When she meets intimidating Eric Dupree, the Master Dom takes her breath away. He seems perfect for her and Val knows he could bring her secret fantasies to life. She’s ready to throw herself at his feet, but refrains. How could he possibly be interested in a forty-year-old BDSM novice like herself?

As managing partner and Rossi CFO, Eric should be thrilled. Club Decadence LA is successful and Rossi is growing by leaps and bounds. But as he approaches middle age, he finds that he needs more than his career and bachelor lifestyle can give him. In walks Valerie Thornton, an innocent to his world. What has brought her to his club, of all places, and why can’t he get her out of his mind?

Love Hurts” by Dinah McLeod

Karen Donahue is intimidating, but she has to be. The youngest CEO of a Fortune 500, her job is stress personified. She’s used to being in charge and if she doesn’t always like it, well, it’s part of the job. And if she’s a little bit of a brat, it’s just because she works so hard.

An excuse that is not good enough for Brandon Fuller.

After Karen’s car breaks down, he comes to the rescue only to be chewed out by the fiery, hot-tempered brat. He informs her that he won’t fix her car unless she accepts a spanking for her behavior and having broken her phone during her last tantrum, she has little choice but to accept. What she’s not prepared for is how much she’ll enjoy discovering the pain that often accompanies pleasure.

Love Potion #9. 1” by Robin Smith

Harper Hicks is a bonafide witch, who has brewed up a bonafide love potion for sale to the normal and not so normal customers at her bookstore. After all, who doesn’t want a little extra heat around Valentine’s Day? And this one is guaranteed to make fantasies come true. What could possibly go wrong?

Lovely Little Liar” by Patty Devlin

Charlie gives the cop who pulls her over for speeding and reckless driving the performance of a lifetime, telling him that her mother is in the hospital on the edge of death.

Trooper Vin Loveanu wants nothing more than to pull her out of the vehicle and comfort her, but has to settle for sending flowers to the hospital, only to find out that the mother is not a patient. Further investigation turns up an obituary for Charlene’s mother from four years before!

Charlie’s lies, abominable driving and strong family ties continue to bring the two together. She can’t run away far enough or fast enough and maybe—just maybe she should be running to Vin—not away, even if it meant a trip over his knee.
