Celebrating The TOYS-4-US Releases

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of the TOYS-4-US Series - A scorching hot erotic romance series with stories from authors Cerise DeLand, Desiree Holt, Nicole Austin, Brenna Zinn, Allie Standifer, Samantha Cayto and Regina Carlysle!

Every four months, the Sassy Seven (Alix, Caitlyn, Emily, Giana, Hannah, Petra and Sara), get together for a long weekend to reconnect, relax and have some fun. This fall, the ladies met in San Antonio to celebrate Petra’s birthday. And oh what a celebration it was. The chocolate wine and flavored vodka got everyone in the perfect mood for a party. An adult toy party.

Each of the women went home with a pink satin bag full of tantalizing fun, aching to invite the man of their dreams over for some sexy playtime.

Are you ready to play?

A LONG TIME COMIN' by Cerise DeLand

A sex toy party with her six sassy gal pals? Caitlyn Hagerty is IN! Getting that tingly feeling just looking at the goodies, Cait buys four and screws up her courage to commit to one dynamite plan. She'll show them to the only man in her life she gets all hot and wet for - and who has no idea he's the one man she's craved for too damn long. When Delta Force hunk John Ramos flies home on R&R, Cait promises herself to seduce Ram–or cut him from her life forever.

Ram spots the risque items on Cait's bed and realizes his claim of her voluptuous body has been too long comin'. It's time to treat her right. Fess up to what he's wanted all these years. Take Cait into his chaotic life–for one wild night.

And if she wants more? She has to know that time is not on their side. Right?



Alix Townsend, uptight, high-powered litigation attorney, has a wild side she rarely unleashes. Deep inside, beneath her tailored suits and frosty image, beats the heart of a woman who dreams of the kinkiest kinds of sex. Preferably with her next door neighbor, Mack Taylor.

When hot, hunky Mack saw his mouthwatering neighbor looking over an array of sex toys on her patio, he was instantly hard and ready for the kind of erotic adventures with her he’d been dreaming about. A weekend of kinky sex took them both to new heights of sensual satisfaction, but could they take it beyond that or had the hours been so hot they burned themselves out?


Kindle Fire is the newest gotta-have-it tablet on the market - web, movies, apps, games, reading, music and more. And we have one up for grabs.

  1. Wow - I'm so excited about this series - what a great idea and I see you guys left this open (since the girls meet every 4 months) for other releases down the road - right??? I hope so!

    Tell us all about how you guys came up with this idea and what your plans are for it.

    Authors I hope you'll all stop by and tell us about your books in this series and how we can learn more about you!

    Best of luck with the release - Noticed Cerise's book already has a bestseller star over on ARe - WOO HOO! Hope they all are bestsellers for you and hope to see these fun heroines again!

    Enjoy your day!

  2. I so want to read this series. Ever since I first heard about them they became must reads.

    Congrats to all the authors n the releases and Cerise on the bestseller start at ARe.

    Ok..cover talk ladies..we all know I'm a cover hussy :)

    What did you all think of your covers?


  3. What a neat series idea for erotic romance. Was this something that all of you came up with on a brainstorming session?

    Have to head to work but hope to catch up with your posts tonight.

  4. How VERY fun, Cerise, Desiree, and gang! So each of you will be writing one of the Sassy Seven's stories, right? Do you have plans for sequels for each of your characters? Or maybe another set of seven stories? How did you come up with the premise for this one?

  5. Yikes, just wrote a long post and poof! disappeared!
    Will try this again....

  6. We 7 are buddies who meet often. One time last spring we met and at Desiree's house we had a sex toy party where the vendor comes to talk, explain and to a limited degree.
    The idea naturally resulted from that.

  7. The covers were all designed by talented author NICOLE AUSTIN!
    She spent hours and how many I do not wish to count.
    BUT she also designed our TOYS website and our blog.
    APPLAUSE TO THIS caring talented lady!
    Now for the contest....

  8. You know that we are having a contest to give away a KINDLE FIRE?????
    YOU just have to enter, don't you?
    Go to the website and check out the rules.

  9. LOL! Yay, Cerise! How fun that the seven of you have found such a joyful group to spur you onto great books! We readers surely benefit!

  10. Definitely going to check out the Kindle Fire contest. The fact that the books are currently 99 cents helps. I have SOoooooo many books in Mount TBR, it's a little frightening! I hate it when Blogger eats my comments. Doesn't it always seem to happen when you write something long and witty? Then, you can't seem to recreate the magic?

  11. Hi! Congrats on your releases ladies! So very awesome!!! Your books sounds awesome! (And yummy!) ;) Where did you get your ideas? Do your characters interact with one another? Are they all the same type genre? Great covers! Love em!

  12. Did i say how much i love that there all .99 cents? Im buying all of the books right now! ;)

  13. I LOve the covers . and such a great price . awesome contest :)

  14. Sorry!
    I had a matter that took me away....

  22. But I did find Mi Toro from another Publisher

  23. All of these sound awesome !


  24. Thank you! ;)
    Cerise, is there a certain order we're supposed to read the books in?

  25. This series sounds like a bunch of really sexy, quick reads. I hope Santa brings them for me.

  26. How did the seven authors first get together?
    Sounds like fun times!


  27. Hi all. Checking in late because I had an early appointment. How we did this is just one of those rings. We all write erotic romance and are all friends at least with one other person. It's kind of like the Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon. We started with a core and expanded from there but now it's just the Sassy Seven. And we are /Sassy!

  28. Yes, these stories are novellas, none bigger than 18,000+ so they are quickies!
    BUT HOTTIES. I must say.
    We had a wonderful time creating this series.
    We started out, runner10, by having our own SEX TOY PARTY!

  29. Shadow, NO ORDER for these!
    But to enter the KINDLE FIRE contest you have to read all 7 and answer the questions correctly to have your name in the pot!

    happy dancing, my buddy is here!

  31. Sounds like the toy party was a must attend event. So glad we readers are reaping the benefits. Yeah that the books are on sale right now, especially at ARe.

    For those who didn't know ARe is currently having a Happy Birthday contest & each day one person wins up to $100 worth of books off their wishlist. I'm ordering a book every day to make sure I get an entry for the next days prize.

  32. Well, I checked in earlier and then had to dash out to take care of the kids. I missed the contest :(

    Kathryn - Thanks for the heads up about the ARe contest. I'm going to check it out.

  33. Hi all. Yes, I'm late but I'm a vampy night chick who goes to ground during the day. :D

    The Toys-4-Us series was so much fun to write because it was something we did together as friends. The Sassy Seven is blind to age and geographical differences, although 5 do live in Texas. Sam is from Boston and I live in Tampa.

    We get together as often as possible and the Toys-4-Us series was born during a toy party we had. Just imagine 7 somewhat intoxicated erotic romance authors at a toy party... Yeah, we had a blast.

    We do intend to write more series together and are even now brainstorming ideas. :D

    For a limited time you can get all 7 books for less than $7 and enter to win a Kindle Fire. So what are you waiting for, grab some great reads and enter our contest.

    I just saw today that the Toys-4-Us books are recommended reads and best sellers at All Romance Ebooks. WOOT!

  34. Contest:

    At 6am eastern I will be giving one commenter their choice of my ebooks. Winning is simple, comment on something here. I will randomly draw a winner from those who have commented. I'll post the winner info here so they can contact me to claim their book. :D

  35. Donna, you are theonly one who tried this contest thingie. So I will send you a cc of Mia Dolce too!
    Is this the addy you want me to use???

  36. CIAO! Must run to make dinner!
