Barnes & Noble


Ashleigh Thomas might have made the biggest mistake of her life. Uprooting life as she knew it, moving back to Dallas to be closer to her family, she finds herself much closer to the one man who she had never been able to say no to. Attempting to hide the fact that she moonlights as an erotic romance author, she quickly finds herself in his arms and his bed – hoping he’ll fulfill some of those deep, dark desires she has always written about, but never experienced for herself.

Alex McDermott has spent the better part of a decade trying to convince himself to stay away from the alluring Ashleigh, but when she moves back home, he finds out that he’s no longer willing to resist the overwhelming desire she instills in him. But he’s got a secret too – one that might just push Ashleigh out of his life for good – something he’s not willing to let happen.

It doesn't take long for the heat between them to ignite into a wildfire of lust, but can they stop hiding from each other and more importantly stop holding back?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains graphic material not suitable for readers under the age of 18, including, but not limited to one smoking hot game of Truth or Dare!


HOLY CRAP ... I want to play Truth or Dare with Luke, Cole, Alex and Logan!  Okay ... I'm done with my pouting and fit throwing for now.  How does Nicole come up with these things?!  Because she's a freaking evil genius, that's how!  She may be my self dubbed Queen of Menagé but she is also a brilliant story teller.  She writes characters that are so lovable, complex and sexy that you feel like you'll just go up in flames when they finally get together.  

Being that I've read Club Destiny and Alluring Indulgence completely out of order, I am getting a different take on the universe than those that read it as it should be.  I keep getting those "ah ha" moments when something from another book that takes place later on clicks into place.  I just read Devotion and there was a lot of Alex and Ashleigh in the book since Ashleigh and Sierra are best friends.  I knew Ashleigh and Alex would end up together but it was wonderful to finally see how Ashleigh goes from avoiding Alex at all costs to being his fiancé and soon to be mother of his child.  

Seduction is Alex and Ashleigh's story and it's a wild one at that!  I mean it may not have any menagé in it but it does have the voyeur aspect on lock in a few scenes.  Alex is a fiercely possessive man, unlike his best friends Luke & Logan McCoy.  The thought of watching his girl and her watching others turns him on but he has no exhibitionist wants inside of him when it comes to the two of them being together.  

Ashleigh is the woman Alex has spent the better part of 10 years trying to stay away from. When they met, she was only 18 and he was almost 30.  He had already been divorced and Ashleigh felt like he was out of her league.  But one drunken night ten years ago, Alex came to the guest house that Ashleigh was staying in and she came on to him. Though he doesn't remember that night at all, he told Ashleigh she would never be able to handle a man like him.  She has kept that memory with her for ten long years but now that she is 29, all grown up and a very successful erotic romance author, not to mention a virgin, Ashleigh is no longer interested in playing it safe when it comes to Alex McDermott.  She wants all of him and that includes his Dominant side.  

This book is what the title implies, pure seduction!  These two set the pages on fire when they are together, even when they aren't touching one another.  Add in that freaking ultra sexilicious game of Truth or Dare with the McCoy brothers and spouses and you get an experience no other book or author can give you.  Every character in this series is just hands down phenomenal and I am now only a few books away from being completely caught up ... and I'll still be panting at the end of my bed whimpering for more.  Thank you again Nicole <3 xoxo


About me... hmmm...

Ok, I've been asked to provide a little bit of "real" information about myself. That's harder to do than you think it is, especially for someone who has difficulty talking about themselves. ;) But, here goes...

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a kid, I loved creative writing and as I got older, I got acquainted with those voices in my head and that led to putting my stories on paper. And now, here I am all these years later, spending my days doing what I love most. I decided to give myself over to writing full time in 2012 and I haven't looked back. I spent nearly 13 years in the corporate world and I have to say, this is a bit of a change (just a little) and I am loving every second of it.

I live in Texas with my husband and three amazing kids and our two beloved dogs. If I'm not writing, I'm usually reading. I devour everything I can get my hands on. I love romance of any type and being an Indie author myself, I'm always looking for new Indies to support. I haven't always been into reading, but about eleven years ago, I picked up a book - I'm pretty sure it was by Nora Roberts - and from there, I haven't stopped. Before I began writing full time, and my characters started taking up so much of my time, I was reading about 200 books a year. That has dwindled somewhat, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read. 

An interesting fact... I don't watch television - aside from the occasional news anyway. I will go see a movie or two rarely, but for the most part, I get all of my entertainment from a book. Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Lora Leigh, Jane Rylon, Lori Foster, and Jaci Burton just to name a few.
