Author Bio:

I currently live in the Chicagoland area with my family and friends. I have been influenced by such greats as Danielle Steele and A.N. Roquelaure, which lead me towards the romantic genre. My first book Revival, Book One of the Return To Us trilogy, centers around two healthcare professionals with dark pasts, but hope for brighter futures. I feel the success of Revival is due to my own experiences working in healthcare that are weaved throughout the story. These first hand experiences along with imagination allowed me to craft a truly memorable narrative.

Writing has always been in my blood; in fifth grade and high school, I won national poetry contests. I grew up seeing my mother fall in love with romance stories, I knew I had to get my own story out. Although I hold degrees that are unrelated to writing, it is an undeniable part of my personality and one that emerges with Revival, my debut in the world of fiction. With compelling characters, sophisticated plot lines, and touching dialogue, Revival sets the stage for a complex yet relatable play that winds its way throughout the Return To Us trilogy.

When I am not writing, I enjoy volunteering, gardening, and spending time with my family. I attribute all of my success to my parents, friends, and family, who have supported me throughout my career.


🔥✴🔥 Review ~ Twisted by Desire by Desiree A. Cox🔥✴🔥

Twisted By Desire

by Desiree A. Cox

Series: Lust, Desire and Love Trilogy, #1

Genre: Erotic Romance

Release Date: December 13, 2014

Nikki Carmichael is confused. Her head’s telling her one thing while her heart is sending another message.

She believed her first husband, Sky, was her Prince Charming. They got married expecting to live their happily ever after, but the happiness dwindled right along with their checking account. Their divorce legally ended the marriage, but not the love and uncontrollable desire between them.

Then she meets Jeff. He’s hotter than an August day in Florida, and can offer her everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Jeff is committed to his life as a bachelor, but his high-powered nature has finally brought him to a crossroads. He’s face-to-face with a quandary; his decisions will affect his professional and personal life forever.

Nikki’s tenacious efforts to live a dream life, while still keeping her heart shielded, are coupled with wrestling an ongoing dilemma – her heart still belongs to Sky.

But Nikki isn’t the only one who’s twisted by desire.

As I stood, Jeff placed his hand on my lower back, which was the equivalent to pushing the floodgate button while touching me with an electric wand. I inhaled slow and deep. The tingles radiated through me. I could feel the wetness breaching the tiny silk barrier. After staring into his inviting eyes and listening to his deep, husky voice throughout dinner, I longed for him to kiss me.

We walked out to the car, where the perfect gentleman opened my door for me. Before I was able to lower myself into my seat, he stroked my face with his hands, our eyes fixed on each other. I tilted my head slightly into his hand as he caressed me with the gentlest touch. Is he reading my mind? I was waiting for him to lean in and kiss me. I leaned forward and held my gaze on him, wanting his mouth to consume mine, waiting to taste him. Instead, he pulled back.  I sighed and sat down, and once I was situated in my seat, he shut the door. Fuck, fuck, FUCK!

Get ready for a ride with this one because you will not even be able to tell that this fabulous book is actually a debut! I was immediately caught into the novel and refused to let go until the very end. Yes it is part of trilogy but it is well worth the wait. By the end of the book all I had to say is talk about a Love triangle! Trust me love triangles when done right in my opinion can make a book and the author did just that. The flow of the story is impeccable and you can even tell whenever Nikki is having that inter turbulence going on because she doesn’t know who to choose. Nikki realized that she had to make a decision when it came to her marriage and even though there is a child involved she did what was best. However, trust me that doesn’t stop these two from still going into old habits of falling into the bed together. Sky, he is hot young and her ex-husband, yes there are still feelings but he obviously wasn’t ready to take that next step in life. Now, she met Jeff, good lord, he definitely knows what her body wants and is exactly what she needs. Only thing is as I said before her inter turbulence is preventing her from choosing one over the other. You get taken to a whole new high with this one because you’re given more than just a love story. As the name of the book says, you will see twists, there is definitely plenty of desire and trust me there is an abundance of lust when you fall into this story. However, can Nikki make the right choice that is the question and you will just have to read this amazing debut novel to see how it unfolds! This author has definitely brought you on the brink of a book hangover with just this one book and trust me you can wait a short few weeks for the other one as the story continues.

Desiree was born and raised in Iowa – corn country. She married her high school sweetheart and moved to the Philadelphia area after high school and has been happily married for over twenty-five years. She’s the mother of two sons and a daughter. She’s a Project Manager by day, Writer of Erotica by night.

Over the past two plus years she’s been working to get her thoughts in print. She finally is writing what she wants to write.

Seducing The Ruthless Rogue Cover


As Director of The War Office, Stuart McKenzie, has proven himself capable of making difficult decisions in times of crisis and keeping government secrets safe. When he walks in on someone ransacking his study he quickly moves to apprehend them, only to be tossed on his back as the burglar escapes into the night.


Cassie’s father has become a pawn in the fight against Napoleon. When the enemy kidnaps him, she will do anything it takes to get him back – including stealing government secrets from Stuart McKenzie, the Director of the War Office.


When Cassie is caught, she reluctantly agrees to Mack’s assistance as there is something far more sinister going on. As Mack embarks on his mission, he will find that enemies are often closer than one would think and that sometimes your ally will come in the least likely form. When passion erupts between Mack and Cassie, they find their lives forever altered. But just as they believe their lives to be free of danger, a new threat is lurking about, promising to rip their happiness away from them. Will they be able to trust each other enough to defeat this new threat, or will they be torn apart for all eternity?


Never in his life had Mack been more angry than when he heard Cassie slam that bolt into place. Not when his father had disowned him. Not even when Cassie had called him a bastard. No, when he had heard that telling snick, he had seen red. Before he knew what he was doing, he had raised his booted foot and slammed it into the door near the doorknob. Mack had felt great satisfaction when the door flew open, and even more when he witnessed the stunned expression on his wife’s face.

“You’re not going to get away from me,” he stalked her across the room.

“Don’t make me hurt you,” she threatened.

“I have studied your moves, Cassie darlin’. You’ll not be hurting me anymore.”

Cassie made a sharp move and found it countered. She tried another one and found the same. He moved on her like a jungle cat. He pinned her against the wall, her hands above her head. He felt her breathing grow fast and labored and knew she was not unaffected by his touch.

Mack forced her legs wide so he could wedge himself between them. At first he did it to keep her from attempting to unman him, but as he settled against her, he felt some relief as his throbbing erection pressed against the span of softness between her pelvis.

“Do you feel what you do to me?” he whispered. He placed a soft kiss on her forehead.

Mack pulled back and saw that her eyes were tightly closed, and her lips were pursed shut. He dropped gentle kisses over each of her eyes, then her cheeks, and finally the upturned tip of her nose. His lips caressed hers, lightly, teasingly, but she remained the same, trying to block out what he did to her. Mack let the tip of his tongue glide against the seam of her lips and though her eyes flew open, her delectable mouth remained tightly shut against his invasion. She left him no choice. “Forgive me, darlin’,” he said before crushing his lips roughly against hers.


“Ow!” Cassie managed to get out before she found Mack exploring the recesses of her mouth. Her lips throbbed where he had ground them against her teeth, but somehow he seemed to soothe even that small injury. She felt her heart beating heavily in her chest. Cassie would be lying if she said she was not the least excited about what her husband was doing to her.

Husband, she thought. She had never thought she would find herself married. The boys in the village had always thought her much too strange and learned for them. Then when their little family had moved to London after her mother’s death, she had not gone about looking for a husband or friends.

“Where are you?” he asked, resting his forehead against hers.

Cassie found herself staring into a pair of smokey silver eyes, rimmed with dark lashes.

Dark brows formed a ‘V’ from the way he scrutinized her. Cassie flexed her hands that were still pinned above her head because her fingers ached to rake through his short, dark hair. She wanted to test the texture. Was it silky or coarse? “Do you know you have flecks of silver in your hair?” she asked curiously.

“I would say half of them have been caused by you.”

“Me? We haven’t even known each other that long. How dare you accuse me…”

“Did you know your eyes flash when you’re angry? They look like they are lit from within.”

“Let go of me.”

“Not on your life,” he said.

Cassie didn’t fight him as he plundered her mouth like a marauding pirate. This time there was no way her mind drifted. The things he was doing to her were making her insides melt. She began to respond, and she heard a deep groan.

“That’s it,” he said before returning to her mouth once more. This time he nibbled at her lips as if they were a fine delicacy. “You look so bloody beautiful,” he whispered as he moved to nibble on her right earlobe.

“No, I don’t,” she replied breathily. “I’m just plain.”

“Whoever told you that was a liar.” Mack bent down and lifted her up in his arms.

“What are you doing?”

“Taking you to bed.”

She started wiggling in his arms. “Put me down. You were going to sleep elsewhere.

Besides it’s afternoon, you said so.”

“You put paid to me staying in another room when you bolted that door.” He held her tight in his arms. “As for the time of day, I can see you better this way.”

“That’s improper!” Cassie was flabbergasted at what he proposed. She knew what happened between a man and woman, but assumed it happened in the dark of night.

“Nothing is improper between a husband and wife.”

He sounded almost wicked and shivers ran up and down her spine. She found herself placed on her feet next to the bed and spun around so that her back was to Mack. Cool air hit her heated skin as buttons were slipped free.

“I don’t know whether to thank Mikala or murder her.”

“Why’s that?” Cassie licked her dry lips, her breath raspy.

“Because she picked the most exquisite dress, but it also has too many bloody buttons.”

Cassie giggled.

“Did you just giggle? The staid and always serious Cassiopeia Elizabeth Graham McKenzie giggled?”

“No,” she denied, attempting to keep a straight face. She jumped when she felt his lips brush her nape, and then lower until he reached the edge of her chemise. She tried to take a step away from him, but he just followed her.

“You’re not going to escape me, Cassie.”

She felt his lips brushing along one shoulder, then her nape again, and finally her other shoulder. His hand brushed along her spine, only the fine cloth of her chemise keeping her from fully feeling his touch on her heated skin. “Copulating will not erase the issues between us.”

“I agree, but it will ease some of this tension we feel around one another.”

Add to Goodreads

The author definitely knows how to keep you entertained. In this historical romance you will find humor also along with romance. This can be read as a standalone even though it is part of a series. I loved the continuously bantor between Mack and Cassie you can tell that they literally are driving each other crazy but then at one point it clicks and it starts taking a turn. The characters that the author wrote are amazing. I love the ambition that drives Cassie. She is stubborn and very independent for this time frame but that’s exactly why I enjoyed reading her. Oh and lets not forget that she is far from helpless. When Mack interacts with her he definitely had an eye opening experience and I for one was laughing. Well done! Mack had a strong hero side to him, yet he is soft and dangerous at the same time. If you read this story you will know what I mean because you out see both aspects throughout the story of him. Can these two put their stubborn aside and play nice to solve this mystery? I really cant say there was anything that I did not like in this novel. If your looking for an adventure with some steamy scenes but plenty of laughing bantor than this one for you to grab up! I will definitely have to go and check out other novels by this author!


Tammy Jo BurnsFrom a young age I could always be found carrying around books to read while watching my grandmother’s soap operas with her. I read anything and everything I could get my hands on and even made up skits and stories for my friends and me to act out. Once I outgrew the children’s and YA books, my mom introduced me to an entirely new world – contemporary romance. Upon discovering I had a love for history I began devouring historical romances. One day, sitting in a college British History class, something the professor said made me think, I wonder. I quickly called mom (also a writer) and ran the idea by her. After being told, “Of course you can do it, you’re my daughter,” the rest, as they say, is history. I currently share my love of reading with the next generation as a high school librarian, and share my personal life with my demanding dog trapped in a cat’s body, Ajax.

 Excerpt #1 

 “Seriously Nikko.” She rolled her eyes at him, just shook her head, and began to fiddle with the wrapping on her straw.  She popped it into the top of the Styrofoam container, and then took a sip of her strawberry milkshake, a long one.

 He watched her curiously.  He knew he had been flirting, but only to make her jealous, and realize what she missed out on last summer by running from him.  He began to peel the paper off of his own straw when she finally came up for air. He wished those lips were sucking something else.  His cock was enjoying the thought immensely.  He was grateful the table was hiding his powerful erection.

 As Ronnie took another pull on the straw she saw Nikko squirm on the seat uncomfortably as he tried to get his straw unwrapped.  “Oh yes!” she whispered huskily and licked her lips.  She put the straw back in her mouth to suck a little more of the frothy, creamy concoction into her mouth. Two, could play his game, she thought, as his jaw hit the dirt.  She could make more out of her enjoyment of the milkshake than she really felt and give him a little dose of his own medicine.  She released the straw and then darted out her tongue to lick the tiny bubble of ice cream that appeared on top. Nikko jammed his straw into his own mouth and looked at her fiercely.  Smiling and then ignoring him, she popped the straw back into her mouth sucking greedily.

 Nikko’s mouth dropped at the sight of Ronne’s lips on the straw, sucking.  And her words practically had him shoot a load like he was a teenaged boy again.  His blood was pumping in his veins. The wrong veins, or maybe the right ones. He felt his cock in his pants stir against the constraints.  The second, no maybe third time that day, she’d made him harder than the Rock of Gibraltar.  He shifted on the wooden seat uncomfortably. His balls would be blue in no time if she continued her little sensuous torment much longer.  He knew what she was doing, but that didn’t, couldn’t stop his reaction to it.

 He finally took another sip of his own drink needing the coolness of it to tame the flames she was fanning.  It was good.  “Oh yes,” he teased her back saying it breathily.  “So good!” he purred and went in for another sip.

 They exchanged glances over their straws and then both of them couldn’t help themselves, they burst out laughing simultaneously.

 They laughed, and for Ronnie it felt good.  It was the first time she had laughed in days, and had not thought about all the things she had to face.  For Nikko, it was startling.  He realized he loved her laugh, and would like to hear her do that more often.  Like last summer, he realized there was something about this girl who made him want more than just a roll in the hay.  But, he couldn’t think of that now.


 Meet the Marino Brothers



 Excerpt #2

 Ronnie knew she was drunk because this was just feeling so good. She needed to stop him. But somehow she couldn’t. He smelled so damn good. The cologne, the sea breeze, the wind, and his tongue trailing down her neck had her senses spiraling. That and the three glasses of champagne she had consumed. His lips and teeth nuzzled her neck, little nips that felt like tiny explosions.  His hand slid up her rib cage. She felt the timeless exploration under her breast as he tested its weight. He gently squeezed, and then flicked her nipple beneath the thin material of the bridesmaid gown she wore. He pulled the cup down and a cool blast of night air hit her before his mouth descended on the tiny bud. His mouth was hot. Oh yes! His tongue divine as it titillated her even further. She was the opposite of senseless. She was on fire.

 Nikko couldn’t believe his luck. The blond beauty had given him the cold shoulder whenever their paths crossed. But, the little ice princess had warmed up to him. All it had taken was a few drinks, a few dances, and a few suggestions whispered in her ear. He murmured his appreciation around the mouthful of the most amazing breasts he had ever seen in his twenty six years. This little spitfire with the snapping brown eyes had continued to ignore him throughout the ceremony. But at the reception, she loosened up.  Let her hair down so to speak. Once he got her on the dance floor, and showed her a few moves, she came undone and began to relax.  He liked her like this. Very much.

 “Oh God!” she whimpered as he circled her nipple with his tongue and then gently pulled on it with his teeth. She was tugging on his dark hair, pulling him closer, showing him her true nature. She wanted this, and he was more than happy to comply. 

 They met two weeks ago at the rehearsal dinner for his cousin’s wedding. From that moment, he knew he wanted her, underneath him, on top, he didn’t care. She was every man’s wet dream even though it seemed like she didn’t know it.  And right now, she was making one of his fantasies come true, up against a palm tree on the beach in a relatively secluded alcove.  She was pushing against him, craving the contact.  There was no denying he relished it.  And he thanked his lucky stars, because he wanted her, badly. His cock had been at attention all through their dances. Now, it was straining against his black dress pants needing its own gratification.

 But, he meant to please her first. She was leaning against the coarse bark of a skinny palm, on the beach where hours earlier his cousin, Victor, wed his lovely bride, Monica. His free hand snaked up her thigh. It was shapely. The girl’s legs were defined, hard under the smooth surface. He could feel her muscles tremble under her silky skin as he slid his hand up the inside of her leg. He cupped her, and again she pushed into his touch. Not one to deny anyone their pleasure, least of all himself, he felt Ronnie part her legs and slid a finger inside. She was already aroused, and wet. He began to flick her clit as she squirmed in time to his ministrations.

 “Oh God, Nikko . . .,” she murmured, “that feels so . . .”


WOW!  That doesn’t even describe what I felt about this novel!  The author doesn’t go into boring details but immediately captures the readers from the beginning of the story and starts your heart pumping!  Tease! That’s the way that I can tell it should be good. As you take a small leap into the future the independent do it all by yourself heroine Ronnie finds herself in a bit of a mess and guess what her blast from the past comes to the rescue!  Sigh… I want a Nikko to come to my rescue,  yes his move at the beginning was a jerk type and I did want to slap him but he does kind of redeem himself. He is purely written as melt your kindle heartthrob! Just Listen to the words that fall out of his mouth! The author has a way with playing words that had me laughing and other times can make you feel tingly.
Question is will Nikko be able to help Ronnie and keep his heart in check or will she be just as stubborn and do it on her own? Trust issues, framed, suspense, romance, and hot tension is all included in this novel! The plot was original and i loved every moment of it. The characters were well defined and each had their own uniqueness to bring more life to the story.  Find out trust me you will be happy you picked it up.
This is the first that I have read by this author and it will surely not be my last,  now bring me the rest of the brothers!  🙂 If Nikko was this fun and just by the glimpses we see of his older brothers they will be a force to be reckoned with!

This is one of those novels that is not standalone and you have to read the other two in order to mostly understand where we are in this story. Even though there were a couple of points where I think could have had a little more details or backstory for the readers to understand; however,  overall the story was one that was easily followed.  You had your suspense, mystery,  and romance!  The author had a way of keeping your interest throughout the whole novel. While I did like both characters I think I loved Varian more! Varian has this darkness about him, he seeks revenge but also at the same time he wants to keep Merry safe. Especially since what happened with his first wife! Merry is still independent; however, as the story progress you can see her start to shine. Of course part of this i blame her family because they aren’t very helpful in the matter at hand between Merry and Varian. Throughout everything that happens between these two will they finally be able to overcome all the struggles or will it all be for naught? The characters are well formed, and the plot will have you wondering what will happen to these two. While I did enjoy the story I do hope there will be more to follow from some of the other characters! If your looking for a historical romance with a fresh look then this is one for you to pick up!

About S.M. Stryker

S.M. Stryker grew up on a small farm in Oregon with her two brothers.


She married her husband 27 years ago. It was important to her to be able to stay at home to raise their four daughters.


She wasn’t an avid reader, although she always thought her life would make a good book. A few years ago she picked up FSOG and The Crossfire Series and was drawn to the characters; the storylines moved her more than anything. Her life changed at that point, she could relate to the characters and what they had gone through. She devoured books after that, sometimes reading 8-10 books a week, and finding new authors she enjoyed reading. She couldn’t be without a book, her IPad or IPhone anything that she could download her kindle app onto.


Knowing she had always wanted to write but kept putting it off, she emailed a few of her favourite authors that gave her some very good advice. So she finally went for it.
