New Orleans’s elegant Beaudelaire isn’t just an acclaimed five-star hotel. Several times per year, the Beaudelaire transforms into a discreet den of sin, and its most important rule is guests must leave their inhibitions at the door.
At the Den, lonely hearts connect and secrets are kept. Some guests go home alone wearing smiles, but others find the start of their happily-ever-afters.Forbidden Rendezvous by Mel Blue
Seraphina orchestrates fantasies, but this year she’ll create one of her own. It’s against the rules for an employee to participate in the weekend-long sex-capade but she’s willing to risk it for Luke. His past and connection to her boss is clouded in intrigue, but she knows what he wants, and she plans to star in one of his voyeuristic fantasies.
Ménage à Troys by Holley Trent
At the Den of Sin anything goes, so instead of two newlyweds letting down their guards to finally consummate their marriage of convenience, three people desperate to be touched forge bonds. That’s all well and good for the weekend, but what will shake out of their tentative ménage à trois when it’s time to go home?
Wicked Surrender by Ambrielle Kirk
Kris is tired of spending her nights playing with hard plastic and silicone. She enters the den in search of a man who will indulge her intimate desires only for one night. When she spots Travis Brenden, a bachelor known for both his lucrative business deals and womanizing ways, she uses his lack of memory of her as an advantage.
Redeeming the Amazon by L. V. Lewis
Karen hasn’t made love fully unclothed since her double mastectomy and demise of her marriage. Paul once left his heart in Baltimore with a former model, whose crumbling marriage was the only deterrent to his waning honor. A fantasy weekend at his uncle’s hotel may give him a second chance with his contemporary Amazon…if her fear of rejection doesn’t become a barrier to their reconnection.
Leave your inhibitions at the door…and turn the page.
Forbidden Rendezvous (Den of Sin #1) by Mel Blue – 5 stars
The red floor. Voyeurism. Seraphina steps out onto the red carpet in the first novella of the Den Of Sin series. Although we don’t find out why until the end, Seraphina lost everything three years ago and runs her life and The Beaudelaire with an iron fist of control. Luke is the only thing that threatens her control and fortunately for her, she only has to deal with him once a year; unfortunately for her, it is the Den of Sin weekend during which the hotel insures that its guests are able to fulfill their sexual fantasies. When the woman chosen by Luke gets sick and a substitution must be found, Seraphina risks it all, dons a mask, and proceeds to fulfill both her and Luke’s fantasies and…IT. IS. HOT! Because this is a novella you don’t get a lot of story but you get enough to connect with the characters, to experience the sexual tension between the two, and enjoy some seriously hot sex scenes. Well done Ms. Blue, I cannot wait to see what you can do in a full-length novel.
Ménage à Troys (Den of Sin #2) by Holley Trent – 5 stars
My favorite kind of menage…MFM and the guys are bisexual. Eve and Brent married so she could protect her inheritance and 3 months later they go to The Beaudelaire to see if they can find what they’re missing to spark their relationship. And they do when they walk in and find her colleague, Remy, who came to the Den of Sin weekend with the intention of stealing her away. Luckily no one’s plans worked out as they intended and we dear readers get a front row seat to a seriously hot weekend of sex in almost every combination possible (MF, MM, MMF, including a semi-public setting). Ms. Trent certainly knows how to write a story that’ll make you squirm (in a good way). I will certainly be checking out the author’s other work.
Wicked Surrender (Den of Sin #3) by Ambrielle Kirk – 5 stars
Holy heck that was hot! Travis Brenden is rich, powerful, sexy and used to getting what he wants. When he decides to attend the Den of Sin weekend at The Beaudelaire, he’s not sure what he wants or is hoping to get out of the weekend except that he wants no strings attached to whatever liaison he takes part in. That is, until he sees Kristina. Kristina has been celibate for almost two years after catching her boyfriend cheating on her. In that time, she analyzed her life, re-prioritized her goals and made changes for the better. She heads to the Den of Sin to end her bout of celibacy, relying upon the anonymity of the event to allow her to do so without strings. The last thing she expected was to encounter someone she knew and was attracted to, but Travis’s failure to recognize her provides her with the opportunity to fulfill her fantasies that their meeting almost two years ago sparked. For one night Travis and Kristina lose themselves in one another and the sex is HAWT! As the evening progresses and tongues loosen in post-orgasmic bliss, Travis remembers where he knows Kristina from and proposes that they continue to see one another once they return home. You’ll have to read to find out what happens and with Ms. Kirk’s ability to write a smoldering sex scenes, you won’t be disappointed.
Redeeming the Amazon (Den of Sin #4) by L.V. Lewis – 5 stars
Ms. Lewis’s contribution to the Den of Sin has by far, sweeter undertones to it than the previous novellas. I absolutely loved that both Karen and Paul had undergone physical loss – Karen a double mastectomy, Paul lost his leg in the war – and found strength and friendship in their shared status. But don’t let the sweetness of the plot fool you because Redeeming the Amazon is just as hot and sexy. Paul enters The Beaudelaire with hopes of starting a relationship with the one that got away (she was married when they met), while Karen is looking to “scratch an itch” while having her “top on” condition met and agreed to before she shows up. Who gets their way? Well you’ll just have to read it to find out.
