Amazon 5* Reviews

“Loved this dark romance read. This is a gripping thriller with a number of twists and although there will evidently be further books, this was also a standalone without a cliff hanger.
I loved the characters Suzie, Simon and Alistair and how they interacted. A realistic tale of BDSM and the Lifestyle. Lot of HOT steamy scenes too.
The pace of the book made it such an easy read and I read it in one sitting. A dark, yet compelling read.”


I wish I could give more stars ?

Format: Kindle Edition

Written so well. Great book a lot more gritty than expected. I couldn’t put this book down! Really enjoyed the way Scarlett writes, a nice bit of humour as well as great emotional content. Highly recommend.

Sparks (A Special Agent Novel #1)Sparks by C.P. Mandara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a fan of Ms Mandara’s and can’t get enough of her books. Her latest book “Spark”, didn’t disappoint.
How appropriate is that title?
Sparks veritably flew from the pages of my kindle, as I read her latest offering.
It kept me up until the wee small hours, as I simply couldn’t put it down. With a feisty, troubled heroine, and an unpredictable turn of events around each corner. This is a thrilling read
Can’t wait for the next instalment.



Knights Errant (Merely Players, #1)Knights Errant by Ian D. Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Paul is a lonely widower, who is also part of a jousting display team. He is approached by not one, but two attractive women and the sparks fly.
Hayley, and Becky are best friendsand the two main female protagonists in this amusing, and sexy little tale.
I found this very refreshing as the story is told from the male protagonists POV.
Can't wait to read the sequel


The Velvet Chair (Velvet Lies #1, The Pony Tales #7)The Velvet Chair by C.P. Mandara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This isn't the first book I have bought of Ms Mandara and I have to say I am a fan.
I just love her writing style and this book didn't disappoint either.
I loved the first series of "Pony" tales that led to this new series. The scene was set but, once again Ms Mandara throws a twist into the plot.
I hate spoilers but I can say this is one HOT and STEAMY tale of sex, BDSM and Dom/sub. Just my cup of tea.
Can't wait to read the next in the series


Katie's Journey Into SubmissionKatie's Journey Into Submission by Tom Speed
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an intriguing journey for two people. Katie and Mike, discover about themselves and each other through the Lifestyle, and BDSM.

Definitely, a great read. You feel for the main protagonist - Kate, as she has major family issues to deal with on her journey.

First book I have read by this author but, I will be reading the next instalment soon

What is Reverse Harem? Romance subgenres

It isn't everyone's cup of tea, but seems to be very popular as a sub genre in Romance.


Simply put it is the opposite of Harem. In a Harem the man is the main one with a bevy of beautiful slave girls, or partners, at his feet. In Reverse Harem, the opposite is true. This sub genre is particularly popular in Japan. Especially in the manga and anime world

There also has to be three, or many more males in the Harem, to make it into this genre. A simple  ménage à trois won't cut the mustard.

Of course the men in a reverse harem are always hot and sexy men. No mediocre man will suffice for our heroine.
The heroine is usually a bit of a klutz, dizzy and they all have amorous intentions toward her.



This is a polyamorous situation.

A reverse harem includes three or more characters who potentially show romantic interest in a female protagonist. The sex, gender, or orientation of the harem members is irrelevant as long as they exclusively, or at least primarily, are vying for the affections of the same individual - who may or may not reciprocate towards one, several, or none of these romantic rivals.

Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away - Anon.

For Alex, this was supposed to be a fresh start.
New job, new part of the country.
But she got much more than she bargained for.
As she travelled through the Snowdonian National park, with its remote villages and Wales’ highest mountains, she stops to eat a bite to eat.
There she is kidnapped by three strangers, and transported to the Dystopian, Steampunk world of Syros.
A world of dragons, magic and werewolves.
Where science fiction meets science fact.
This is only the beginning of an epic urban fantasy, and the fulfilment of a prophecy over 200 years old.
Will she survive on a planet where three factions battle for dominance.

Book One of the series Dragon Queen

🎉🎉🎉 #OctoberFrights Paranormal & Horror Month - Relaunch of The Vampire of Blackpool by Catherine Green 🎉🎉🎉




The Vampire of Blackpool by Catherine Green




British paranormal romance author Catherine Green has taken a break from her Redcliffe novels series set in Cornwall, and has launched her brand new novel, The Vampire of Blackpool. A contemporary English Gothic story, it tells the tale of vampire Meredith Hanson, her love interest Samantha Morris, and her rival, the vampire hunter Ryan James. The novel is strictly for an adult audience, and Catherines vampires do not sparkle!


The vampire, the witch, and the hunter battle it out in a contemporary Gothic adventure in Northern England.

Meredith Hanson lives in Blackpool, the former Victorian holiday hotspot of Northern England. She masquerades as a reclusive author, feeding on the blood of unsuspecting tourists without remorse. Her life takes on new meaning when she meets a young witch in a local pub one evening. Despite Meredith’s cold demeanour, she finds herself oddly fascinated with Samantha Morris, and falls into an accidental relationship with the girl. It is at this time that a vampire hunter arrives in Blackpool. He is tough, he is determined, and his next target is an ancient vampire that has been spotted in the tourist town. He intends to bring her down and destroy her to save the lives of innocent humans. Will he succeed? Or will the experienced vampire seductress be the cause of his undoing?

The Vampire of Blackpool is available to order in paperback and eBook formats via Catherine’s website www.catherinegreenauthor.blogspot.com or you can find it in Amazon and other eBook stores.



About the Author

Author of British paranormal romance series The Redcliffe Novels, Catherine Green was raised on books from a young age, and has happy memories of Saturday mornings spent in her small local library, devouring the contents of the shelves. Catherine has always been fascinated by the supernatural world, and it feels natural for her to write about vampires, werewolves, witches and other mystical creatures in her contemporary stories. 


If you sign up to Catherine’s newsletter, she will send you a free copy of her Redcliffe short story, It’s Complicated, to introduce you to her fictional supernatural seaside town in Cornwall, England.

You can find Catherine in the following places:

Strangely enough the Inspector came looking at the Red Rose Steam Society and not the Lancashire Mining Museum or Astley Green Colliery. It also seems strange that this has never been a problem for the Society or raised to them in the past 30 years, when food has been served on site on numerous occasions before but has only now come to light since the pop-up tea room was started this year.

It is sad that we seem to have, on the face of it, Committee members who are sufficiently disaffected as to try and cause the Society problems with statutory authorities. The answer, of course, is to comply, to the letter, with our health and safety requirements. This underlines the necessity to replace and upgrade our toilets and to ensure that our personnel and premises are fit for the handling of food.

The toilets will have to be cleaned properly and professionally and we now need to avail ourselves of a contract for the removal of our environmental waste. The net cost of both these requirements will be approximately £1,650 per annum. To fulfil our VAT requirements appropriately we will now pay VAT on the toilets but are VAT free in relation to the refurbishment of the disabled toilets.

We are in the process of designing a new booking form, which we will circulate to the Committee in due course but the new arrangements will come into effect immediately and will have some bearing on Bonfire Night, the Scout Jamboree, etc.
