Celebrating Two New Releases For Desiree Holt

Today we are celebrating two new releases for Desiree Holt - SWINGTIME , an erotic menage contemporary from Total-E-Bound, and KIDNAPPING THE GROOM, an Ellora's Cave erotic contemporary she co-wrote with Allie Standifer.

All her life Desiree Holt dreamed of faraway places and unbelievably sexy men. From baseball players to rock musicians to television personalities she met them all and each one enriched her life. Now tucked away in the Texas Hill Country, she shares her fantasies with her readers. In her satin robe, with her scented candle burning and a chilled glass of wine at hand, she lets her mind run wild — and hopes you’ll take the journey with her. When she’s not writing, she reads and indulges in her other passion — watching football.


KIDNAPPING THE GROOM, a hot new Quickie from Desiree Holt, Allie Standifer and Ellora's Cave.

Cameron Greeley had spent a lot of years trying to put the memory of Gabe Holder behind her. But now he's getting married to the wrong person and, despite the way they'd parted, she can't let that happen.

Kidnapping Gabe and taking him to an isolated cabin, she treats him to hours of the hottest sex either of them could imagine. In one all-too-short evening they indulge in every erotic act she can think of - and then she dumps him back at his house, the memory of those hours eating at her. Will he let her go, or will he come after her, taking her into his bed and into his heart?


SWINGTIME, a sexy menage story from Desiree Holt and Total-E-Bound.

Lanie Burrell had heard about group sex, but how would she handle being thrust into the middle of a hot Saturday night party?

Lanie Burrell was shocked to discover the reason Cody Hawkins was the only other neighbour on their private little cul de sac. He needed the privacy for the swinging parties he hosted featuring the kind of uninhibited group sex she read about in the erotic books she reviewed. At the moment they were the most exciting part of her sex life.

Then Cody invited her to one of his parties, and she found a wildness within herself she hadn't known existed. And an attraction between herself and Cody that exploded like a big bomb on a short fuse.

Reader Advisory: This story was released as part of the CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE Anthology by Total-E-Bound.

  10. Thanks, everyone. Armenia, glad you found the free reads. There is aa prequel to Charlie and Liane's story-Line of Sight-and a sequel, Driven By Hunger that I'll be celebrating ehre at the end of the month. Stay tuned.

  11. Sherry,
    The areas I will not write about are horror and violence. I know there are some authors who incorporate it into their stories but I can't make myself go there. I think romance should be...romance!

  12. In Kidnapping The Groom, it made me think of how in the past it would be the man who would kidnap the future bride. What inspired you to switch it up?

  13. Ooh, Desiree! Congrats on your latest releases!! Looking forward to these--your stories are always a wonderful mix of emotion and heat and romance! Hope you're taking a little time to celebrate all your successes this weekend :)
