Playing the Game Series
This third standalone installment of the “Playing the Game” series, follows the relationship of Brendon, an AFL footballer, and Suzie, secretary at Homicide Squad. They are both inexperienced in the roles they play and as this tragic relationship develops, Brendon and Suzie each realise they want more.
Leon Graham becomes out of control, with Suzie needing to make drastic changes to her life as a consequence. But Suzie’s stalker has also brought her Police ex-boyfriend Jason, back into her life, despite Brendon forbidding her from having contact with him.
In addition, Suzie meets a younger guy who fancies her and doesn’t appreciate the way Brendon treats her. Brendon soon realises that there are multiple males on the scene, bringing his jealousy to the fore, resulting him taking matters into his own hands.
When he bent his head towards mine, I noticed he avoided my lips, instead going straight for my throat. As his mouth continued to suck like a vampire out for blood, I knew there would be lingering marks to show he had been there.
When he moved lower, I purred with delight as he parted my thighs and, with his tongue, pushed his way inside me. While his tongue seemed to lick every inch internally, externally his mouth was sucking and biting,
bringing me to a heightened frenzy. My body seemed to have a mind of its own, thrashing about and squirming under the intense pleasure he was giving me.
All too soon, he lifted his head and smiled, no doubt, at my loss of self-control. I had assumed he would restrain me for my actions, but surprised me instead by positioning his cock before me. I returned his smile, then bent and spread my legs wider, giving him easy access to my now-throbbing sex.
“Very wanton.” He whispered the words, as he leant over to grip my hips firmly.
“Please, Sir. Please take me.” I tried to sound submissive, hoping he would heed my plea and give me what I was craving.
“My god, Suzie, you have no idea what you do to me.”
I didn’t get a chance to ask what he meant, as he wasted no time in fulfilling my request, by filling me to the hilt.
I matched his powerful thrusts, stroke for stroke, holding onto his shoulders as I pulled him closer. I studied his eyes, still fascinated to see their colour change to a beautiful ocean-blue, as he neared and then reached his peak.

About the Author
Even though I have a very busy life (wife, mother and secretary) I still manage to devote time to my passion for writing, and of course, reading. I don’t think I could survive without reading.
My current story came to me in a dream and it just grew from there. It is an erotic relationship theme with bdsm elements. I started writing it just to get it out of my head.
Now that I am nearing the end of this series, an earlier storyline has begun to take over.
I also have a regency tale that is half finished, which I will get to once these others get out of my head and onto the page.
I live in the south west of Western Australia. This is a lovely view from one of the many beaches just minutes from my home. (pic above)
When on holidays I enjoy camping with my family and two dogs. Here are a couple of pix from our last trip.(pix above)
I always make sure I have plenty of reading material and, since I started writing, my laptop is the first thing I pack.

foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the beautiful town of Paradise is the perfect
place to raise a family, have dinner at the local diner…and chase a ruthless
DEA Agent dead-set on getting vengeance for his sister’s death. When his
sources tell him that the drug dealer he’s been searching for will soon be
setting up a distribution center in the seemingly innocent town of Paradise, he
moves in for the kill.
counting on, however, was falling in love with gorgeous Harmony McKinnon – the
ex-wife of the man he was determined to eliminate.
never believed she’d find love again….not after the horrors she lived through
with her ex-husband. When she meets secretive Jacob Stone and soon falls
in love, she never expected that her life would be in danger again…or that
the man she’d come to trust would betray her.
understand his motives? Can Harmony trust him in spite of the past?
Will they have their happily ever after?
it seems in the sleepy, little town of Paradise, Tennessee!
second book in the Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters Series,
but is a stand-alone novel (165,000 words) that can be easily read without
reading the first book.
O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who bonded over their passion for
romantic fiction and erotica. Born and raised in the southern United States,
one lives near Louisville, Kentucky, while the other resides in Atlanta,
Georgia. Formerly an accountant and a
chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children,
their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible.
Currently focusing on their Passion in Paradise series, they love to write wildly intense
romantica stories that have multiple characters, but each book focuses on one
specific couple that will ALWAYS have a happy ending…eventually! The Passion in Paradise series follows the
lives of four sisters, who love and infuriate each other – and the men who love
them! Each book is a stand-alone and
does NOT require the reader to have read the prior books.
I was introduced to Hard As Stone and the Passion in Paradise series by the author, Sarah O’Rourke. I was asked about reading and giving an honest review. I agreed and here we are! Now I can honestly say that I AM GLAD I READ Cain’s Salvation and Hard As Stone!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this series and am…
Chomping at the bit for the next novel in he series to come out!!!
From start to end this novel was wonderful!!! I laughed, I cried, and Jake had me SWOONING!!! This novel can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the Passion in Paradise Series. Though I would recommend reading it as a series. The characters are so life-like, exciting, and a total hoot! My favorite character is Aunt Orla. She is just so funny!!!! She keeps me in stitches!!!
The story-line contains sensitive material. But the characters stand strong loving and supporting one another through good times and bad.
Whether you read as a stand-alone or as a series, the authors make it clear the background of the characters. So if read Cain’s Salvation or not, the reader has an understanding of the make-up of each character and what they bring to the series.
Look for little details while reading. These little clues will give you a sneak peek into future reads in the series…
Even though there were a few grammar issues, this was a truly great read!!! So make sure and add this to your reading list. Then laugh, love, and cry with the McKinnon sisters. I promise the men in this novel are so, so, so!!!!!! SWOON-WORTHY!!!!!
Ok, if you are an emotional reader like I am then make sure and have your tissues handy. The chapters that effected me the most were 10, 11, 33, 34, 54 and 55.
Sisters Harmony and Honor have both had traumatic experiences with the opposite sex. Yet, as mentioned before it is through the love and support of family (blood related and so close they are family) that helps them to survive. What these two have been through will shatter your heart. Just know that they both have trusting, loving, and strong men to love and protect them now.
However the tears will not last for long. Soon Aunt Orla will have you giggling, while the men will have you swooning… ❤
5.0 Romance Raves
The novel begins with Jake’s POV. He is in the I Don’t Care Cafe watching Harmony work and thinking about the first time that he saw her and talked to her at the cafe. Jake describes his business in Paradise, lets readers know a bit of his past and how he looks. He is one tall and yummy drink of water. Just looking at this fine creation will make woman’s mouths go dry. He is just that HOT!!! With his long hair, tattoo sleeve and his Harley he rides into town on…
Read how one man and one woman who thought love was not for them find that special connection. It may take a while for the two to realize their love for one another, but the adventure to get there is sweet and sexy. The McKinnon sisters can be feisty when they want to be. In Jake’s case, that attracts him to Harmony even more. Thus also revs up their relationship. And Jake REALLY knows how to please a woman too! I even sent some scenes to my hubs… he told me they were so naughty…
Will Harmony learn to trust Jake? Will Jake get his Happily Ever After? Shhh… It’s a secret. You will have to read and find that answer for yourself. All I will say is that these men….
really do, SIZZLE up the pages ♨♨♨
I know when I finished reading my Kindle was HOT to the touch!!! So you have been warned. Keep tissues and cold water handy. You are gonna need both…
Happy Reading and Sexy Dreaming,
Look for a review on Cain’s Salvation coming NEXT…

Werewolf Wars Novel #3
Published – June 10, 2014

Sprinkles On Top Studios/http://www.sprinklesontopstudios.com
Bad things happen in threes. For Nora Jamison, this couldn’t be truer. Her grandmother just passed away, her best friend is in trouble, and she just hit a man with her car. It cannot possibly get any worse. Wrong! Nora quickly finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed. Werewolves are real, and they are after her and the mysterious stranger she hit. Running for her life, she ends up on a ranch in Texas. Stuck in a new, unfamiliar world, she gets to know the man that helped rescue her. Daniel McKinley is different than anyone Nora has ever met. Despite his rough exterior, Nora can tell there is more to him than meets the eye. However, Nora has a tiny secret of her own. She can only hope that when Daniel learns it he will still look at her the same way.
Daniel McKinley has always been a loner. His father trained him to be an alpha through brute force—not through people skills. Now that Daniel’s older brother is alpha instead, he has become even more of an outcast. Despite their differences, the wolf in him craves the acceptance of his brother—his alpha. While trying to prove himself, he is involved in an accident that draws a human into the line of fire. Unwilling to see an innocent hurt by the enemy wolves after him and his pack, he vows to protect her. Nora is kind, caring, and strong. His past is dark and he fears if she learns too much it will scare her away. Although, he tries to keep his distance, there is something about her that draws him in. Can he keep Nora safe and earn his brother’s trust in the process?
*Finding Our Way is the third book in The Werewolf Wars Series.*
** Available in Ebook and Paperback **
Daniel stood up, walked to the dresser, and set up the computer. He tapped something and the red screen popped up.
“Avengers?” Daniel asked.
“Sure,” Nora said sliding back so she was lying on the pillows. She patted the spot next to her and Daniel lay down, resting one arm behind his head and pulling her close with the other.
Nora sighed relaxing her head against his chest. The movie started and she smiled as Daniel’s hand rubbed tiny circles into her back.
Nora grunted as her warm cushiony pillow moved out from underneath her. Her eyes fluttered open and she squinted in the darkness. Daniel’s silhouette moved toward the laptop. The screen was black as white names scrolled over it. She’d missed the entire movie.
She sat up and stretched her arms up and over her head.
“I didn’t mean to wake you,” Daniel whispered, dragging his finger over the touchpad.
“I’m sorry I wasn’t a very good movie buddy,” Nora smiled. “Did you like it at least?”
“It was good. I heard there is a third one coming out, maybe we could go see that together,” Daniel offered.
She didn’t think the other movie was coming out for some time yet. That meant he didn’t know that, or he was planning to be with her for a long time. “I’d like that.”
Daniel shifted on his feet. “It’s late and we have an early morning,” he said, running a hand through his hair.
Did he want to stay but didn’t want to force it or was he trying to get out of staying, she wondered. He wouldn’t have spent all evening with you if he didn’t like your company, she reasoned. “Will you stay with me again tonight?” She tucked locks of hair behind her ear as she peered up at him.
“Yeah,” Daniel said. “Do you mind?” he asked. His hands rested on the hem of his shirt.
Nora licked her lips and shook her head. Her breath caught in her throat as she rose up to her knees. Feeling bold, she rolled her shirt up and let it fall to the floor. Daniel’s eyes appraised her for a moment before he lifted his shirt up revealing his taut upper body. She reached out, skimming her fingers up his chest. Daniel bent down, his lips capturing hers. Gently, he pushed her back until he hovered over her on the bed. His stubble scratched at her mouth as his tongue met hers. Nora moaned into his mouth as heat pooled between her thighs. She needed him.
His hand dipped down between them, flicking her jeans open. Nora gasped as his warm fingers slid down into her panties and he inserted one digit inside of her. Daniel kissed down her neck and shoved her bra strap out of the way, as he peppered his way to her breast and took the mound into his mouth. Nora cried out as he added another finger.
Her hands flew to his hair. She threaded her fingers through his thick locks. His free hand found her other nipple, and he rolled the tight bud between his fingers. Nora’s hips rose up greedily meeting his thrusts. His digits slipped in and out of her folds as her core ached for more.

Gene wants to protect his pack, but he also believes in doing the right thing. There is a mystery surrounding Natalia, one that Gene wants to uncover.

The Beats in Rift by Ker Dukey – Release day ~ June 13th
I was invisible, until they saw me.
When circumstance forced me and the Jacob twins to spend two weeks of the summer together, the bond we formed would impact us all, altering our lives.
Fate, entwining us forever.
They became my best friends, my family, my first love.
With their love came their father’s hate! Love is powerful but also painful and destructive when it’s torn between three people.
When my mother’s reputation and their father’s vile actions damage that love, that friendship, it changes the dynamics of our trio setting me on a path of love, loss and impossible decisions.
Jared the beautiful rogue, who pushed her limits, opened her eyes and owned her heart.
Their love was powerful, everlasting… until he abandoned her.
Justin, loyal and true, picked her up when she was left fragmented.
He made a place for himself in her heart and would fight to keep it.
When both twins come in and out of Meadows life, leaving damage and hurt in their wake will she ever choose one or the other, or leave them both without the beats in their heart?
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active, I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling too.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life, but when I do get down time, I love attending music concerts with my younger sister, who shares my reading soul, we are two peas in a pod.
