The Hot Summer Nights Erotica Bloghop Is Here!



A pond, a campfire, a tent, and a hot summer night. That's the recipe for endless erotic possibilities, isn't it? With just those four ingredients, where does your mind take you? Are you gazing up at the stars, or do you have stars in your eyes as you're pushed back to the ground, the fire flickering and warming your legs as a heated body slides up and over you, easing your legs apart, sizzling your insides as lips find your nape and...

Okay, you get the picture. Erotica and summer go together like chocolate and peanut butter. There's something about the heat of summer that raises the temperature in our thoughts and in our bedrooms. More skin is shown, clothes are more revealing and sexier, and with longer days, we have to squeeze a lot more loving into shorter nights that provide a brief reprieve from the scorching heat. And for us authors, summer spikes the heat on the pages, too. So, let's hop about it, shall we? This hop includes over 100 erotica authors and kinky bloggers, all with hot posts and giveaways. So, make sure you hit all of them (the full list is at the bottom of this post)

I am an author of both M/F and M/M erotic romance, and in my upcoming novel, The Arms of Winter, which drops everywhere on June 30, I explore a friendship between a horse trainer and an ex-Army sniper as they come to terms with their love for one over a campfire on the banks of a pond in the heat of summer. Hard male bodies, covered in sweat, touching and exploring. Yes, it's a heatwave on the pages, but it's also a love story.

My paranormal series, All the King's Men, which takes place in Chicago, opened in January with book one, Rise of the Fallen. Not exactly summer, but in the bedroom, the main characters (a dark and mysterious male vampire named Micah and a feisty ex-Army medic named Samantha) would never have known it was cold outside for all the frictional heat they were firing up. Book two, Heart of the Warrior, took us into March with an even hotter dose of erotic heat. The series is fast approaching the end of spring, and the books of summer promise not to disappoint, with one especially amazing swoon-worthy erotic love story already taking shape that occurs in the month of July.

Make sure not to miss out on this series, which is garnering incredible feedback and making ladies everywhere seek out a cold shower or two.

  3. Does a night at a campfire (which resulted in a two year relationship) count as summer entcounter?
    Not to mention what followed in the barn (filled with other people in sleeping bags)....Well, it's sad to say but in the whole two years this must have been the most romantic night :D No wonder it didn't last.

    1. LOL. Hi there, Dyan! So glad you came by for a little blog hop visit. And my boys are all puffed up with pride that they've given you fits of pleasure. I swear, I don't think I'll ever get Micah's head back to it's normal size with all the ego boosts he gets. But he loves it, I love it, and we're thrilled to please the fans. Stay tuned. Io's book might just curl your toes, too...along with a new chari or two being introduced. *wink*

  25. I live vicariously through my books as I have never really had a real sexy summer getaway/encounter. Camping: cold weather where you could see your breathe it was so cold. Cruise: motion sickness. Disneyland: kids (need I say more?). etc. etc. etc.
