Babes in Toyland II receives Rogues & Romance Must Read Award!

This is my third straight Recommended Read award this month! Babes in Toyland II (Christmas anthology) from Aspen Mountain Press receives the Rogues & Romance Must Read award!

Babes in Toyland II really blew me away with it’s fun, smart, sexy, and imaginative stories. Every single one of those stories were ones I enjoyed reading immensely, and the folks at Aspen Mountain should get a big round of applause for choosing the perfect blend of fantastic stories for this anthology. Not only did I find Babes in Toyland II a definite keeper, but I found a ton of new authors that I loved. This is one I will certainly be reading again- at Christmas and all throughout the year.

Skylar's book buying frenzy this week

I am home this week recouping from oral surgery (can we say yikes!). I have gone months without diving into some of my favorite foods, and goodness do I like to eat.

Anyway, I have been on this book buying kick the last couple of days. Whose books did Skylar buy?

I started off by buying Lady of Light and Shadows by C. L. Wilson. This author has penned a completely unique and magical realm for her characters. I just started this book, so I will tell you more as I get to know the characters more intimately. Believe it or not, I found this book at my local Walgreens, and I bought the last copy too :)

Yesterday I purchased The Cheater’s Guide To Writing Erotic Romance by Morgan Hawke from Mojocastle Press. I have to say this sharp-minded and plain talking author has my creative juices flowing again. If you are an author just starting out (this isn’t just for erotic authors either) or one like me that already has published works, it never hurts to learn the secrets and tips by the masters like Morgan Hawke. How the heck do you think I have best selling books?...I take classes and read books regularly.

Today I purchased The Red Storm by Zinnia Hope. You can get a copy at Lavender Isis Press. I haven’t started it as of yet, but Zinnia’s voice is soft and sensual, and one that is all her own, that much I do know.

Well, back to writing and reading,

Skylar's cover wins an Ariana at EPIC!

I am very pleased and humbled to announce that my cover art I designed for Extraordinary Love has won in the fantasy, sci-fi, futuristic, and paranormal erotic romance category at EPIC!

This cover now goes on to compete with the other 11 covers to decide the best of the best known as the Quasar, starting January 15 to January 30, 2008.

Side note: Sadly this book was released by Mardi Gras Publishing, which most know the history of that publisher. Extraordinary Love will be coming back out next year, revised and even better! I am glad that this cover won despite the the odds faced when Mardi Gras Publishing suddenly closed it doors and left many authors without homes for their books. This cover was a labor of love, as well as the story it holds.

Thank you to all that voted for Extraordinary Love's cover.


Skylar Sinclair.

New release - The Tome of Unnatural Desires anthology

What he doesn’t realize is that he has just bought himself a ticket straight to a dark region that is ruled and dominated by the likes of something sinister and hedonistically ferocious. Its appetite is for the warm flesh of men. It hungers only for what a man can give and receive.

Fallen Angels

With nothing much to her name, she will cherish this old book, even as unattractive as it first seems.

Happy hot reading,

A Sexual Spark receives NOR's Reviewer Top Pick Award!

When a dark, mysterious and deadly bad boy walks into Freaks, Loren’s work, she dubs him Mr. Dangerous. Loren works at a paranormal bar and she is a wolf. She can smell that he is paranormal, but can’t figure out what he is. On the other hand it doesn’t matter, he just has an air that does it for her. She is more than interested in “her” new man, but she knows it is not going to last for long. He tells her up front that this will just be a one-night stand and then he will be on his way. Since Loren is game holds on tight as he takes her to a hotel for the night of her life. The big question is what is he and will he stay around for more than one night?

A Sexual Spark is a short story that hits just the right spot and gives a huge punch. I don’t want to give too much away, but you will not be disappointed in this naughty one-night-stand paranormal romp. Ms. Sinclair can take a story and quickly have you hot and bothered. Any paraerotica reader should not miss A Sexual Spark.

Two more reviewers love A Sexual Spark!

5 out of 5

I just put down A Sexual Spark and all I can say is… WOW!!

That Sin in Sinclair really comes out in this book. This was the most descriptive book I’ve read in a while. Skylar takes not only her characters but you the reader for one wild ride. It seems Loren has seen all kinds at her job as a cocktail waitress for a paranormal bar called Freaks. Then a tall, dark, and dangerous stranger makes her rethink that. He makes her wet with a glance and her scream for more than that before the nights over. She won’t be able to get him out of her head and… Damn it… neither can I. This is a definite recommended read. Five Delightful Divas hands down.

4 out of 5

Working in a bar called Freaks should have made Loren, a shifter herself, pretty cynical about the types of people who come in for a drink… and for the most part, she was. Even still, when the tall, dark, to-die-for good looking biker walked in, she knew she was toast, especially when she realized he couldn’t take his eyes off of her. Will she take the chance and let A Sexual Spark fan into something more?

Skylar Sinclair is a genius at writing stories that just hit the spot. Long enough to tell the tale, yet quick enough to enjoy on your lunch hour, A Sexual Spark will definitely make you ignite. Although Loren knows she’s not the kind of girl for happily ever after, she’ll take happily sated tonight with the sex god in the bar. Join her in a sexual escapade that’s only been whispered about in legends! And watch as she discovers just what she’s capable of…
