BTW, there will be a drawing for a birthday celebration. See details below!

Rainie’s Lake is our first paranormal erotic romance. We’ve been told to warn the readers to have a box of tissues handy! Rainie has received 5 star reviews. You can read the reviews on Amazon.

Taking a long over due vacation, Art Instructor, Dylan Bishop is eager to start his trip to the cabin in the mountains. When he saw the photo online with the rental ad, he knew this was his destination. Being drawn to the lake nestled behind the cabin with a private dock, Dylan hopes to regain his inspiration to paint.

His vacation takes an erotic turn when he meets Rainie Marks on a foggy morning by the dock. She is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. However, there is sadness and a mystery about her. Finding his inspiration, he sketches her one evening and unable to resist the passion that has sparked between them, Rainie and Dylan share a sensual night together.

When Rainie tells him the truth about her past and the lake, the mystery she hides unfolds. The key to everything is the lake. Will Dylan be able to help her put the past to rest?

Read an excerpt and enjoy a characters’ interview here!

Now fans have told us how we met again is the start of a romantic story and we should write a book. Who knows maybe we will. *both of us smiles*

Steve Tindle and Brenda Woody were high school friends in Georgia who reconnected, on a social network, after 30 years of leading separate lives. During their re-acquaintance, they found their past and interests were similar; they had written poems, songs, and both had the desire to be published. Their combined experiences and fantasies inspired their first erotic novel Best Lover in Town, published June 2010 by Charles River Press. The rights for BLT were reverted to Brenda and Steve July 2011. Best Lover in Town was re-edited and re-released with a new cover.

Best Lover in Town

Janet Anderson is searching for sexual magic in the man who can match her in the bed. Janet suspects all this and more lies within her handsome boss, Nathan Lovett. During a work-related visit to Janet’s home, Nathan and Janet give in to an attraction beyond their control, and soon find themselves immersed in a pleasurable night of uninhibited sex and heated passion. To their dismay, their luscious interlude is interrupted, and Nathan must leave on a plane to a far away place; their whirlwind coupling on hold.

Three years pass, and with Nathan gone, Janet’s co-worker and best friend, Madison, urges Janet to end her mourning and explore other possibilities. Janet attends parties and events to fill the void left by Nathan, meeting four other men. Though she experiences new sexual delights and discovers more about herself; her suitors fall flat, and Janet is left longing for the touch of her Nathan. Will the best lover in town return to finish what he started?

Brenda moved to Dallas in 2009 to be closer to Steve, start a new chapter of her life and work on future books. Their second book Temptation Triggers, an anthology of seven erotic short stories, was released June 2011.

The publisher asked us to write a short story to be featured in an upcoming anthology. He liked the story so much he asked us to write more and dedicated the book to our work.

Temptation Triggers

Temptation Triggers captures the wickedness of sexual fantasy, the mystery of unexplored territory and the fulfillment of open communication. Among these thought-provoking stories, two friends find themselves drawn into a dark erotic world, a woman encounters a mysterious man and a mature couple discovers hush-hush desires about each other. With different styles of writing, Temptation Triggers reveals erotica that is passionate and spellbinding.

Triangle of Secrets, Book One, a ménage M/M/F story, was published October 2011. This was our first ménage. We enjoyed writing Triangles so much we are working on six installments featuring various relationships; F/M/F, M/F/M, F/F/F and so on. Steve is looking forward to completing the F/F/F! LOL

Triangle of Secrets, Book One, is the story of three ordinary people trying to make their way in the corporate world and keeping their personal lives out of it. Morgan, the Vice President of a prestigious company, dates her best friend and co-worker, Derek, to hide her secret affair with Scott, the much younger mail clerk. Derek appears with Morgan socially to hide the fact he is gay. He is afraid his lifestyle will hinder promotions. Scott wants out of the mailroom and will do anything his lover asks of him. What happens when Derek and Scott meet at Morgan’s house to fulfill her wildest fantasy? Will the triangle break or will it be completed?

Black & White Affair, submitted in a holiday contest 2010 and received 3rd place, was expanded and is available as a short read for $0.99.

Works in progress include Scarlett’s Cowboy and TOS, Bk 2 and 3 to be released 2012. Future projects include: TOS, Bk 4, 5 & 6, an erotic romance time travel (ancient Eygpt) and a BDSM in notes to work on.

As you can see we’ve been busy since we met up again. Our stories are penned with the perspective of both male and female point of view regarding sexual desires and pleasures. We both write the POV for male and female, and have been told by readers they can’t tell who wrote what. We compliment each other is this area. This is why it’s awesome writing as a team. We’re both open-minded and not worried at all about asking each other questions.

We’d also like to mention our new website with Author Tonya Kinzer. A Naughty Reader’s Boudoir is a place for readers and authors to meet, and chat about the naughty books they read and write. Naughty Reader’s features authors who tantalize your erotic fantasies with wicked words. For readers, we provide author interviews, contests, books to explore and blog hops. For authors, we have created advertising packages to meet anyone’s budget and help them promote their work.

#SixSunday – Malia Mallory Shares an Excerpt from B is for Beach – Get the Full Story

Hi Readers! It’s time once again for Six Sentence Sunday. For your reading pleasure today, I’m presenting a selection from The ABCs of Erotica – B is for Beach.


The conversation progressed, and Erica couldn’t help blushing as images of their previous interactions entered her mind. That, coupled with the wine, created a slow, building heat within her. She’d been uninhibited at times, and at his urging, she’d let her fantasies take flight. She’d even shared many of her innermost secrets with him. It embarrassed her, and yet on some level it was freeing. He knew so much about her and accepted her.

My Guest Today – Sara York Talks About Sex and Her Release Fire & Ice

Thank you Sara for stopping by to share your ideas and your excerpt. I must tell you…your cover looks very inviting!


I want to thank Malia for having me on her blog. I hope you enjoy my topic today, sex. Sit back, grab your favorite brew and read on.


I’ve had a few people ask me recently why I include sex in my books. To me it seems like a natural progression in a relationship. Then there are other times when sex is an outlet for stress. Where two people can’t help but come together because they are so wound up, not necessarily over each other but life has conspired against them to the point that they need an outlet. Of course in real life sex between consenting adults that isn’t in a committed relationship is condemned. That also plays over into books with people bashing the author’s choice to have two people come together sexually before the reader feels it’s right.

Everyone has their own personal standard of what is right for them. The characters that I create have to set their own standards and rules to live by. Of course I make those up for them, I know that, but they get a say in if soon is too soon or not. I’ve written a broad range of sexual exploration in my books. My Princess Series comes closest to erotica then I have a few short stories where the purpose was just to have an excuse for the characters to get it on. I also have a few books without sex at all.

In Torn to Shreds I debated about putting sex in the story. My critique partner encouraged me to have the book be sex free and she was right. Lucas, a very sweet young man, is abducted, raped and tortured. His character is too messed up in the head to have sex. There is a second book, Learning to Live, coming out soon and one of my friends who doesn’t read erotic stories asked me to write it without sex because she wants to read the ending of Lucas’s story. I’m not sure what I’ll do in the end, but Lucas and Brett will get their say as the story progresses.

Fire and Ice is an angel and demon story and for that one I felt the need for sex to be a central theme. I mean, if you were in the presence of an angel who is in love with you and wants you, why wouldn’t you be so taken in by him you would want to just jump in the sack. Alexandria can’t keep her hands off of Rafe once she touches him. He’s got this thing, this power over her that she doesn’t understand. Their story called for hot sex, making her want to drop into bed with him at a moments notice, lone before their first date. Is it proper? No, but that’s how life is sometimes.

Fire and Ice

How can an angel win the woman of his heart when he’s trapped in a demon’s body?

With Raphael’s soul ripped from his angelic body, he’s forced to inhabit the demon Lash’s ugly form until he can help Alexandria overcome her anger and forgive. Raphael’s been in love with Alexandria for decades and wants her, but he’s Lash now and despises his new body. How could anyone fall in love with him, much less the beautiful Alexandria?

Alexandria doesn’t know what’s gotten into her. Rafe is the man of her dreams but when she touches Lash a firestorm of desire is unleashed… She has to have him. Confusion about her desires leaves her vulnerable to the evil fate Rafe has planned for her.

Can the angel in demon form, Lash, fight off Rafe and save Alexandria from hell and himself from eternal punishment of living as a demon?

For your enjoyment today, I’m giving you a short excerpt from The ABCs of Erotica – C is for C*ck Ring.


She circled around to my face, her heels clicked on the floor, and she gazed into my eyes. I couldn’t maintain eye contact and looked down. She placed her finger under my chin and lifted my gaze. “Don’t look so nervous. Isn’t this what you want? What you need?”

She began to walk around me again. I swallowed and remained silent.

“Hmmm. I can see you need a great deal of instruction. Just when I think we’re making progress you prove me wrong.”

The knotted cords brushed against me as she circled.

She suddenly stopped with a slight stomp of her shoe. “I’m waiting.” Her bright lips pursed and her eyes flashed.

#SixSunday – Malia Mallory Shares an Excerpt from #WIP Mia’s Cop Craving 2 – Double Teamed #erotica

Hi Readers! It’s time once again for Six Sentence Sunday. For your reading pleasure today, I’m presenting a selection from my unreleased, work-in-progress, Mia’s Cop Craving 2 – Double Teamed.


Mia heard the forceful knock at the door and scrambled off the bed. She quickly stuffed the vibrator back in the drawer and pulled up her pants. She hurried down the hallway, adjusting her clothing as she went. She pulled open the door and paused, taking in Rogan.

He radiated maleness and she swallowed hard as her arousal was sparked again. He leaned forward into her, stealing a kiss, as he stepped inside.

When she arrived at the bar, she paused outside and took a deep breath. She pushed the door open and stepped inside. It was a little dark. There were a number of televisions displaying various sporting events. She took a moment to allow her eyes to adjust to the light. She moved to the side and scoped out the patrons. A group of older cops was giving one of their group a ribbing over something and laughing uproariously. No, that wouldn’t do. She was looking for someone a little younger and maybe solo.

Then she saw him on the other side of the bar. A dark-haired man sat by himself paying close attention to his beer bottle. He had on a cop jacket. He couldn’t be more than mid-30s. Okay, deep breath Mia. She walked over to where he was seated and took the stool next to him. He didn’t look up.

She noticed he had an import in a bottle. When the bartender came over, she ordered one too.

“Would you like another?” She thought that was an innocuous opening.

He looked up almost startled. “No. I’m good. This is it for me.” He looked her straight in the face. His icy blue eyes were piercing. With the dark hair, the effect was mesmerizing.

Hi Readers! It’s time once again for Six Sentence Sunday. For your reading pleasure today, I’m presenting a selection from The ABCs of Erotica – B is for Beach.


A gust of wind swept up, and Erica shivered a bit. Ben stopped, running his hands over her chilled arms and then leaned forward, pressing his lips against hers. Liquid pleasure filled her and Erica strained closer, bringing her hands to his shoulders. Finally, the moment was here. She’d waited all evening to feel his lips. Again and again, Ben kissed her urgently.

Malia Mallory Welcomes Kristabel Reed – Regency Menage Tales & Covet Excerpt

Regency Ménage Tales. Not exactly the typical Regency story…or the typical ménage either. I wanted to take the typical Regency romance and…turn it. I like twists, and you can’t tell me there weren’t people—couples, threesomes—200+ years ago.

But then I doubt Jane Austen knew about any of that.

So let’s talk about twists. I’ve seen many erotic takes on Jane Austen’s books, but there are a whole host of Regency romances out there. Because the Regency never dies. I’ve asked this question before:

What twists would you like to see in a Regency Menage? Or even a Regency erotic romance? My favorite is an underground tunnel between houses to fool society. But it’s more than that. Yes, sure, there’s sex in my stories, but there’s also romance. After all, what’s the point without a good romantic plot?

Georgette Heyer is a great guide for this. No, not the sex, but the storyline. There’s one, Black Sheep I think it is, about a lord who returns from war and is basically exiled by his family. Or was that attempted murder? I can’t remember now. I’m doing this by memory here! Anyway, what if I changed that? What if he did return home, but instead of doing whatever Heyer had him do in an every so proper way, he got his revenge on his family by other means?

Because let’s face it. Having two women might be every man’s fantasy but if it ever got out in society, there’s be ruin galore. (Just look at Charlie Sheen—ugh, on the other hand, let’s not.)

The question now becomes, how do you get your revenge on your family so they know, but you’re not totally ruined in the process? AND you still manage to fall in love with two women who you then have to figure out a way to keep from also being ruined. BUT living in the same house.

There’s a lot of juggling, but it’s worth it. Plus, it’s a lot of fun!

Covet: A Regency Ménage Tale

The truest torment is wanting something you know you can never have. Charlotte Tremaine knew this feeling all too well. She covets the freedom to do as she pleases, but has never let herself dream of being with the man she loves. The problem is, she loves two men.

For the last three years, Charlotte has survived her stifling home life by living through correspondence with two childhood friends now off at war. Once they return, will she be able to summon the courage to tell them of her feelings? Or will she let the convenience of mourning an aunt she despised keep her hidden and isolated?

Fear lurks in the shadows and threatens to keep her cloistered. When William Stanton and Grayson, Earl Warrington return from war, she teeters on the brink of having what’s she has always wanted. Torn between William and Grayson, Charlotte must first learn to trust herself before she can trust her heart and body to them.


She’d never felt the need to hide her feelings from either Wil­liam or Grayson, and hated that she used all the weapons in her reserve against Aunt Lavinia with the two men she most adored.

Despite the stormy emotion in his dark blue eyes, William ad­opted his usual relaxed pose, tugging her hand through his arm as he led her down the last step and fully into the foyer.

“Grayson,” William admonished. “Don’t insult our Charlotte by referring to her as a guest.” He turned back to her and with an easy smiled added, “Forgive me, my dear. I’ve lost all sense of decorum.” He winked down at her, then eyed Grayson. “However, unlike Grayson, I simply don’t care.”

“Oh, William.” Charlotte laughed, feeling light and energized. “It’s so good to have you home!”

Grayson looked as if he wanted to physically pull them apart, but stood utterly immobile. William gave her another long look and shrugged.

“Charlotte, it’s wonderful to see you again.” He turned to Gray­son and added with a hint of laughter, “And you, Grayson. I’m sorry we missed each other in London.”

“It’s good you made it back to England safely,” Grayson said calmly.

Charlotte frowned at him but quickly looked at the footman and butler, who went about their business in the foyer. Watch­ing, naturally, everything that went on between the three of them. She didn’t, however, believe that was the reason for Grayson’s distance. He’d markedly changed, and Charlotte didn’t know the reason behind it.

A look passed between the men, one Charlotte had no hope of deciphering.

“Look at this,” William said as if that look meant nothing and Charlotte imagined it. “The three of us together, back at Fox Hollow. You must stay, Charlotte, and we’ll celebrate. I’m sure Grayson can convince Cook to make a feast for us. It’s been an age since I’ve had a decent meal.”

“I’d love to, William,” she said honestly. But she didn’t feel welcomed in this house and refused to push herself on them. “Per­haps….” She glanced at Grayson, who didn’t look at either her or William but once more at a spot just over their shoulders. “Perhaps we’ll see each other again soon.”

She took her cloak and gloves from the footman, William shad­owing her every move. When she turned to face him, the hungry look in his eyes turned them the deepest of blues. Shaken, blood heating and racing through her, Charlotte sucked in a breath. Cap­tivated by his look, she forgot to breathe, forgot where they were and who watched them.

William took her hand and kissed the back of it. Though she couldn’t feel the physical kiss through her glove, Charlotte felt it nonetheless. Her fingers curled around William’s for the briefest of moments. His smile was wicked, blue eyes dark with hunger, but then he straightened and pulled back.

“Tomorrow,” he promised. His blue eyes held hers with cer­tainty and she knew he meant to keep that promise. “No longer than tomorrow before I see you again.”

Dazed, confused by his reaction versus Grayson’s, Charlotte nodded and left. Her stomach danced with anticipation at William’s promise.

When I first saw it, I didn’t know what it was. Round and silver, she flipped it over in her hand. It was way too big for a finger and too small for a wrist. She held it out and urged me to take it. I grasped it in my hand; it felt smooth and cold to the touch.

“Put it on.”

Hoppy Easter Blog H@p – Malia Mallory Shares from D is for Domination #erotica #bdsm

Hi Reading Fans! Welcome to the Hoppy Easter Blog Hop!

This festive blog hop is brought to you by The Blog Hop Spot.

There are dozen of authors participating with many wonderful prizes. Please stop by here and see the full list.

Please leave a comment and I’ll send you a free ebook! A few lucky commenters will be offered their choice of copy of a previous release.

Here is an excerpt from The ABCs of Erotica – D is for Domination. This is a Mistress Ven story.


“Do you know what this is?” He loved her voice. It was all at once sultry, sexy and commanding. Her every emotion was conveyed in her tone. There was usually little doubt as to her mood.

He raised his head. She was twirling a wide, black loop on her finger, anticipation in her smile.

“It looks like a small cuff, Mistress.”

“I suppose it is in a way. What a lovely way to think of it. Where do you suppose it goes?” She smiled slyly.

It was clearly too small for a wrist or ankle. It was fastened shut but had a variety of snaps and a metal loop on the outside. “I’m sorry, Mistress. It is new to me.”

“How delightful! I love to be the first. It’s called a ball stretcher. We will see how it works on you, mmm?”

She left his view but he could hear a spring in her step. He was elated to create enthusiasm in her and yet apprehensive. Ball stretcher sounded disquieting. He had to admit though, she had yet to steer him in a direction he wasn’t willing to go. Each time she took him further, but he was always ultimately glad for her tutelage.
