Hot Summer Nights Blog Hop - Moms Need Hot Summer Nights Too

Welcome to our stop on the Hot Summer Nights Erotica Bloghop, hosted by Skye Warren. This hop is all about those kinky, erotic summer nights you spend reading your favorite erotic romance's.

As Book Lovin' Mamas we love all kinds of books but we tend to stick close to romance and erotic romance. So for our topic today we decided to go with...

Moms Need Hot Summer Nights Too

As a mom of two small children, I spend a lot of my time taking care of them, worrying over them, feeding them, cleaning up after them and so on and I don't get much time to myself. Now that Summer is here I have some extra time one my hands (since I don't have to get up early to catch a bus) I tend to stay up late reading. Most of the time I'm reading Erotic Romance. I have my favorites but I'm always looking for something new to read too. I first started reading Erotica a few years ago when I got my Kindle and found page after page of kinky reads on Amazon. I started with Mari Carr's Tequila Truth and once I read that, I was hooked. I went through probably 200 books in about 3 months, most of them being short erotic novellas, but still that's a lot of reading. It may sound strange but erotica brought me out of my shell, showed me a new world in which I didn't have to feel ashamed of what I find joy in because there are so many women out there just like me reading these fantastic books. :)

Everyone knew me as the red-head chick who last summer got out of the U.S. Navy after serving 10 years in.  Now I'm the red-head chick who is a stay-at-home mom to two girls who keep me on my toes.  I have one going into second grade and the other who just started crawling. Yeah...I know big age gap..but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Thank goodness...hubby is there to help me every once in awhile with them...but when he's not, I'm the woman running around with her head cut off.  
What do I keep my sanity?  I read A LOT!  It's the only way I can get away from reality so during the summer time there's no worrying about getting up early (well...actually with having a baby in the house again...there's no sleeping in for me) I sleep deprave myself to read. 
I love steamy, sexy books.  I didn't read my first Erotica book until last Fall and it was by Jeffe Kennedy.  Ever since I've been addicted.  
I'm always looking for new Erotic books to read...especially since this is my first summer I do not have to worry about going to work...instead it's time to read.  Something I've enjoyed doing since I was in grade school.

One lucky winner will receive a $10 giftcard to either Samhain Publishing or Ellora's Cave (winner's choice). You MUST be 18 years old to participate in this giveaway.

I would have to say at this time, since I'm reading another of her books it would be Shayla Black. Her Wicked Lovers series in super hot!! I also like Roxanne Rhoads novellas I've found online. :-)

Thanks for the giveaway.

Unknown said...

WOW! I am the first to come here?!? Thanks for the email reminder.

My favorite is Lorelei James. She was the first author I read in this genre after not reading for about 15 years. She had me hooked!! I still can't get enough.

Favorite erotic writer..... hands down.... Cherise Sinclair and her Shadowland Club series. After I read one of her books I feel like I know the characters, like I could have a chat with them at a coffee shop. And, her Doms are to die for *drooling*.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Maya Banks because her books are a consistently good read.

I love anything by Kallypso Masters, Cherise Sinclair, Shayla Black and Sophie Oak. Their writting just pulls me in and leaves me panting.


Emily said...

I'm new to the genre so I haven't read much yet. But I did read the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L.James and I loved it! That's what got me interested in the rest of it. Thanks for participating in the hop. Glad I found you guys!

I think so far Delilah Devlin has been my favorite because of her paranormal selections and how creative some of the different ideas she has for the different books dhe has written. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com

Mary D said...

My favorite book is "The Irish Devil" by Diane Whiteside. She writes amazing stories. The hot sex is just a great bonus.


Depending on the genre, I have different favourites. For my gateway to bdsm author, I would pick Ms. Sinclair, hands down.

For my GlitterKink I'd pick Sophie Oak with her Siren series.

For my deep humiliation and dirty BDSM I go to Penny Birch or NT Morley.

For my Scifi hot smexy BDSM I go to Morgan Hawke - I just love her because her stories pull me in so very much.

For my non con taboo no romance I go to JJ Argus. I know I can always count on him for some depraved debauchery.

For my SM intense and well written books, I go to Ms. Candace Blevins. God I love her books.

For killing me with sorrow and emotion, I go to Tymber Dalton with her Cardinal Rule and Relunctant Dom. Just end it.

For my M/m there really are so many good ones. I love Rachel's work as well ask Kim Dare and my personal favourite is probably Jane Davitt right now.

I'm more BDSM focused although I do read more than just BDSM.

Barbara said...

I like anything by Leanore Elliott...she's amazingly creative, Bianca Sommerland's Dartmouth Cobras series has super sexy hockey players that are also Dom's and belong to a bdsm club(yum!)...and Evangeline Angerson's The Brides of the Kindred series is awesome too...the Kindred are like nothing you've ever read about before! Thx for the awesome giveaway op!! :)

I love Jaid Black and Lora Leigh because the stories are always good and usually pretty hot.
sstrode at scrtc dot com

I have only been reading these books for a few months so I am finding some many new authors (& books) that I don't know I am going to pay for everything I've discovered. Lorelei James was the first author I've read in this genre & is still my favorite!

I love Lorelei James' books!

Kim D said...

Thanks so much for the contest!!!
Lora Leigh Breed series is AMAZING!!!

I like Eve Langlais, Shayla Black, Kallyspo Masters, Lorelai James, and more.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Nadine said...

Anything by Lora Leigh. That woman can write smokin' hot!

Lisa said...

I love so many authors. Some of my favorites are Jess Dee, Jayne Rylon, Mari Carr, Lexxie Couper, Cari Quinn, & Rhiann Cahill.


June M. said...

There is no way that I can pick one book or one author as a favorite. However one of my favorite indie authors is Kallypso Masters. She writes a great series (Rescue Me) about wonderful Doms who were in the military together and now own/run a private BDSM series. I love the Masters, who are wonderfully sexy yet troubled men. Kally writes great characters, stories, and really draws you in. I am so eager to read the next book to be released soon NOBODY'S PERFECT.

Oh, anyone interested who has not read Kally can get the first book MASTERS AT ARMS for free! This book sets up the series and even though it does not have a HEA or even HFN ending, it is very important to read to learn about the characters. This series really needs read in order.

I didn't start reading erotica until maybe a bit over a year ago. Really had no idea it existed and boy am I glad I found it, if I remember correctly, the first one I read was by Jaid Black...I haven't looked back since. I love the genre, it feeds my fantasies!


Anonymous said...

So far I would list JR Ward, Kresley Cole and Laurell K hamilton but I'm finding great new books on this hop so I may have a few's all about the alpha male for me.

I love Cherise Sinclair because her Doms know exactly what to do, and Olivia Cunning because hot kinky romantic rock stars are awesome!

Juana said...

My favorite erotic author is Lora Leigh. I love her Nauti Boys and her Breeds series because the heroes might be very protective towards their loved one, but they know how to treat them as ladies and they remain faithful.


Emily said...

I’m really liking Cari Quinn right now as I’ve just gotten into her books. I’m hoping to find some new authors through this hop too.


Shadow said...

My favorite book of hers is Justice. :) I love how strong and family oriented. The characters can be pretty comical too! Thanks for sharing and for the fun hop! And thank you for the awesome giveaway!

Terri H said...

I keep re-reading Nauti Nights by Lora Leigh and Master of the Abyss by Cherise Sinclair lately, so I guess those are my favorites right now. I also love the m/m rock and roll stories by SJ Frost.
Thanks for the giveaway!
