Jennifer is an international bestselling author of erotic romance. She’s had #1 top-selling books in BDSM, Suspense, Thrillers, Action & Adventure, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror. While she’s been writing for years, it’s always been the dark stuff that makes her tingly, so her books are full of aggressive alpha males, feisty women who may or may not have a submissive streak, and intense, psychological storylines. She says not to worry, though: She also insists on having a nice little happily-ever-after! Because without the dark, we’d never appreciate the light.



Guest Post By Jennifer Bene

Cold, ruthless, vicious… I’m Paulo García’s monster, and I’d swallowed that bitter pill whole, learned to deal with it — until Nicky. I know I should try to help her, protect her, but then who will save her from me?

Excerpt: Monster by Jennifer Bene

The boys opened the front door, and Paulo strolled into the sitting room, making his way to the wet bar. One of the most violent drug lords ever to come out of South America, and he looked like he was on vacation with his casual clothes, his falsely friendly demeanor. My grip on the tequila bottle tensed as I stared at the man, but I made sure my expression was blank. It didn’t matter how much I hated him, I was his until the job was done.

“Not curious about the girl, Andre?” Paulo asked, tilting up his fresh drink to take a sip.

“Why should I be curious when I can get the play by play just from listening?”

“Well, José seems to think she’s a security risk.”

“If you need her handled, I’ll do it, jefe. Otherwise, I see plenty of ass walking around Miami.” I stayed still. Discussing shit like this was practically second nature now.

Paulo chuckled, leaning back with his elbows on the bar. “That’s what I like about you, Andre. Cold as ice.” He waved his drink at the men crowding the front door where a buzz of conversation had picked up. “The others are so hot tempered, they don’t think. You think.”

“Emotion clouds judgment.”

“You’re right. My father used to say… mata a tu corazón, o te matará. Do you know this phrase?”

I hadn’t heard it before, but I knew what it meant, and it fit Paulo perfectly. “Kill your heart, or it will kill you.”

A shark’s grin spread across Paulo’s features. “Exactly. Emotion makes you weak, and weakness is death.”

“Your father was a smart man,” I answered, voice on automatic, but the words were almost overridden by the feminine shout that came from the front door.

“Are you in there Paulo García? HUH?”

The man’s eyebrows lifted the tiniest fraction, his chilling smile not shifting. “Let her in, José.”

“Keep your hands off me.” The blonde that stumbled into the room from the foyer was clad in shorts and a form fitting blue shirt that had some phrase across it in pale, swirling text. Male laughter followed her, and I forced myself to be still, not even breathing so I wouldn’t move.

She was definitely American, and beautiful, and as I turned my eyes back to Paulo I knew the man smelled blood in the water. A wicked hunger waking up in those coal black eyes — the same hunger that I hated myself for feeling. “Hola, señorita. What can I do for you?”

“Do for me?” Her voice was practically boiling with rage, tanned cheeks flushing with it as she held out a thick envelope. “How about leaving my little brother the fuck alone? I’ve got your money, and I want you to take it and then never fucking speak to him again — any of you! That is what you can do for me, asshole.”

Marco and Diego started laughing behind her, amused by her little outburst as they looked over her curves, her strong legs, all the way down to the multi-colored running shoes on her feet. Even Paulo seemed vaguely amused as he spread his arms wide. “I have no idea who your brother is, belleza, but if he owes me money that was his choice.”

“Fuck you! I know you hurt Chris, threatened him, but this is it. Take your money, and get out of his life!” She shook the envelope again, shouting, and my c–k twitched at the same moment my stomach dropped.

Brave and stupid. Paulo was going to eat her alive.

Detective Hercules in HERO UNDERCOVER

Detective Hercules in HERO UNDERCOVER. Pre-order now.


By A.C. Rose

Detective “Herc” Hercules Anderson is working the desk, and answering phones in his Manhattan police precinct. Due to a hand injury, he’s been pulled off his undercover assignment and he’s more than a little disappointed and bored to be on paperwork detail.

All of that changes, when early one morning he takes a call from a woman with a sultry, sexy voice who needs assistance. Not the standard call he is used to―she needs first-aid advice for a possible broken toe. During their conversation, something pulls him in. He gives her advice and arranges medical care for her, instead of referring her to 911.

Lizzy Harper, a radio dating expert with a hyper-sexual drive-time show, is taken aback by her feelings for the detective who helped her. Details of her experience with him become the talk of her show the following morning and the NYPD is not pleased.

Herc, to save the department embarrassment and protect his job, must go undercover as Lizzy’s boyfriend to ease the media uproar. During this undercover assignment, he discovers Lizzy has more than just fans of the show, someone has a sinister motive. He makes a pledge to protect her. During their time together they find that their phone meeting may be karma, as the sparks between them start to fly.

Can Herc uncover the threat and keep Lizzy safe? Will he still have a job when the assignment is over? Will Herc’s undercover assignment become personal and permanent?

Publisher’s Note: This fun romance is intended for adults only. It contains elements of adult language and sexual scenes. If any of these elements offend you, please do not purchase.


First Meeting: Lizzy and Det. Hercules

From Detective Hercules by A.C. Rose in HERO UNDERCOVER

The evening doorman, Bill, buzzed up and I limped to the door.

Nervous excitement fluttered in my stomach in anticipation of our first glance. Maybe our chats this morning were foreplay and this night would result in an epic radio tale about sex between two people on the injured list.

And now, for an episode of The Broken and The Beautiful.

When I opened the door, it was clear that Detective Herc Andrews was truly hot and handsome, as promised by the ER nurse. His body… crazy hot. Tall and lean with broad shoulder and chest, I was mesmerized by his larger-than-life muscles and the way his arms generously filled out the sleeves of his shirt. She didn’t tell me about those blue eyes though. They were sapphire like the Aegean Sea and sparkled beneath the light. Damn.

My ovaries exploded. It was lust at first sight.

He stood in my doorway and smiled, revealing beautiful, straight white teeth.

“Well, hello there, detective.” I went for friendly and enthusiastic but a part of me immediately wanted to mount him. He’d barely gotten in the door and the energy was already sizzling.

“And hello to you, Ms. Harper.” His voice was even deeper and sexier in person. It emanated from a pair of beautifully formed lips that fit perfectly with his square jaw.

He bent down and kissed me on the cheek as if I were a long-time friend. He smelled so good, in a fresh from the shower, I-am-pure-male kind of way. My flesh vibrated from the touch of his lips. I raised my hand went up to my cheek by instinct, to feel the warmth spreading through my face.

“Yankees, huh?” He grinned wide as he lightly tapped a finger to the rim of my baseball cap. “That’s a good omen. So, how’s the patient?”

“Ready for some of that pain relief you mentioned earlier,” I said, eying the bottle he was carrying. He handed it to me and graciously took it back when he realized I couldn’t manage to walk with crutches and carry wine at the same time. He waited for me to invite him in―a gentleman―and then stood back and motioned for me to go ahead in front of him.

As I hobbled forward and he followed me down the hallway, deeper into the apartment, an exciting energy filled the space between us. I felt his eyes on my ass. Oh yeah, he is checking me out!

“Nice crutches,” he commented with a laugh.

” Height of fashion,” I said, turning back to him. “I asked for blue, in honor of the NYPD, but no luck.”

It was then I noticed his tight jeans and the way his form-fitting, button-down, royal blue shirt, offset his ocean blue eyes. His broad shoulders and tall frame filled my hallway. And he was easily a foot taller than.

He moved with command and confidence. I caught sight of the splint on the thumb of his left hand. Ah, he was telling the truth. It’s not that his thought he was lying, it just seemed like such an odd coincidence that my broken toe led me to connect with a cop with a broken thumb that I needed to see it to believe it.

Scarlette Stilletto


Guest Post by Maggie Carpenter

Ruby Rose is in trouble. Terrible trouble. Her much older and wealthy husband Al Rogan is lying on the floor in their home. His skull is caved in, hit with the fireplace poker. Now the tall leggy knock-out blonde has to seek help from a man she’s never met, Patrick McGuire.

Patrick, a former cop turned private investigator, kicks his feet up on his desk and pulls his hat over his eyes, but his respite is abruptly interrupted when he hears the seductive clicking of a woman’s high-heels.

Though he loves the sound he’s in no mood for another housewife seeking a detective to spy on her cheating husband, and grudgingly opening his eyes, he is shocked to see a beautiful, blonde, willowy babe, with undeniably kiss-me-now lips coated in crimson lipstick.

Patrick is intrigued, confounded, and inexorably attracted to her, but why didn’t she go the police? Was it possible the gorgeous gal could be the culprit?

Rich memorable characters star in this riveting whodunnit romance. Twists, turns and hot sex will keep you turning the pages, and the suspense and intrigue will keep you guessing until the very last chapter.


EXCERPT from The Scarlet Stiletto:

His hand began smoothing itself over her curves, and she closed her eyes, luxuriating in the comforting attention. It was divine, and she found herself wishing his touch was on her skin. A second sigh washed over her, and it was only a minute or two later that he kicked off his shoes, laid back, and brought her into his arms.

“I shouldn’t ask you this,” she murmured as she settled against him.

“You can ask me anything.”

“No, it’s wrong.”

“Why don’t you let me be the judge of that? If it is I can always spank you again.”

“This isn’t funny.”

“I wasn’t joking.”

“You’ll think badly of me.”

“Is this a female thing?”

“What does that mean?”

“Yep, it’s a female thing. Ruby, baby, you want to ask me, so ask. I won’t walk out the door, I promise.”

“Will you stay with me?” she whispered. “I know it’s wrong, but I don’t want to sleep alone.”

Her urgent request didn’t surprise him. She’d endured a harrowing ordeal and she was still scared, and the spanking had created a unique intimacy between them.

“Sure, and I’ll do my best to behave, though I can’t promise.”

“You don’t think I’m a bad person for asking?”

“Not at all. This isn’t Victorian England. It’s 1938 and we’re in New York. Besides, I’ll sleep better knowing you’re next to me.”

“I need to take a bath, or a shower, or something.”

“Go ahead.”

“I don’t want to leave.”

“I promise I’ll be here when you get back.”

“I can’t believe you just spanked me.”

“Why? Wasn’t it hard enough? Isn’t your backside stinging?”

“You know I didn’t mean that.”

“Was it so terrible?”

“Uh, no, it wasn’t terrible at all, it was…”

“Can’t find the words?”

“It’s not easy. It’s strange. I feel better.”

“I know, baby. That’s how it works.”

She yawned, then let out a long breath.

“I can’t do it. I have enough energy to change, but not to take a bath.”

“I’ll go into my room and come back in five minutes.”

“Thanks, Patrick. You can be such a gentleman.”

“Hey, I’m doing it for me. If I watched you take your clothes off I don’t think I could control myself.”

He started to move off the bed, but she grabbed his arm.


“I need to tell you something.”

“Another female thing.”


“Fellas, if they wanna ask something, they just ask, and if they wanna tell a guy something, they tell him. Females, they start with, can I ask you, or can I tell you?”

“Never mind,” she muttered, releasing his arm and flopping back on a pillow.

“You sure look good when you pout.”

“And you sure know how to kill a girl’s mood.”

“Tell me, go on, tell me what’s on your mind, or do I have to—”

“Don’t you dare say it!”

“Then tell me.”

“I’m really glad I came to see you, I’m really glad about, uh, everything.”

“Even your warm backside?”

“I can’t believe I’m saying this, but yeah, even that.”

He paused, but only for a moment, then leaning over her, he grabbed her wrists and pinned them on either side of her head.

“Your warm backside is just the beginning!”
