Sarah Castille’s Picks
Thank you so much to Shelf Pleasure for having me here today to celebrate the release of my sexy Mixed Martial Arts erotic romance, Against the Ropes.
I am a voracious reader. We have shelves overflowing with books, cupboards filled with boxes of books, and a Kindle with so much content, sometimes I just close my eyes, point and tap.
But my true love is romance: contemporary, erotic, suspense and paranormal. And the hotter the cover, the better. Which was why I was all nods and smiles when I had my first look at the cover for Against the Ropes. My only quip…why wasn’t I invited to the photo shoot?!
In days gone by, my bedside table would be overflowing with books. But now, pretty much everything is on my Kindle. I usually read two or three books at a time, diving into one when I lose interest in another, or if a story is very good, then I’ll drag it out by starting something new. How I love to torment myself.
And so…here is what I have on my bedside table:
- Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley. I picked up her Dream Man series when it was described as “crack” and I was totally hooked. Over the top alpha heroes, just like Torment, the hero in Against the Ropes. I loved the Dream Men and now I love the Rock Chicks and their own breed of Alpha Men.
- Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich. I love to laugh and Janet Evanovich always makes me laugh out loud. I love her quick, fluid writing style and over the top stories. I would definitely count her as an influence for some of the more humorous scenes in Against the Ropes.
- Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha. I read Beyond Control and was blown away by the sex scenes. These two ladies (sharing one pen name) can write HAWT and I could barely wait to get my hands on Beyond Shame. I thought the sex scenes in Against the Ropes were spicy but Kit Rocha takes sex to a new level in a dystopian setting.
- When You Dare by Lori Foster. Private mercenary alpha males and some good suspense!
That’s only a sampling of what’s currently on my Kindle. I’m a sucker for the 99 cent sales and the Kindle One-Click. I find myself thinking everything sounds good and next thing I know… Click. And that. Click. 99 cents? Click.
Click. Click. Click
