The N in N. Kuhn is actually Nicole. She was born and raised in western New York. She grew up with a love of books, and a passion for writing. She was always found with her nose in a book. She finally decided to take the steps to embark into self publishing at the urging of her Grandmother. Mrs. Kuhn has dedicated her second book to Janet Starr, as she passed just days after being published.

Nicole survives on coffee alone. Mostly Tim Hortons. (It’s a NY thing.) A fan of drinking it from the time she gets up, until she finally rests. When not writing, she crochets and spends time with her beautiful daughter and her husband. Her friends call her Octo-Mom because she multi-tasks so well. Between her full time job, family, crochet and writing, it’s a wonder she ever sleeps.

Mrs. Kuhn feels that reading in our youth is a very important trait to instill. She reads with her young daughter as much as she can. “It’s the most important thing a parent can ever do with a child. Read, teach them to read. Don’t buy them toys, buy them books,” She says.

Review The Bad Boy Dom by Holly S. Roberts

"The Bad Boy Dom"
Author: Holly S. Roberts
Genre: Erotic Romance/BDSM
Pages: 140
Source: Author in exchange for an honest review.
Published: February 13, 2013

Buy Links: Amazon B&N

Goodreads Blurb: Blazing male eyes follow her every move, longing for the chance to dominate, while desiring the beautifully hot erotic shell god graced her with. They never look below the surface and into Angela’s scorched heart.

Rock-n-Roll superstar Krispin Righteous walked into Club El Diablo, looked around, and saw what every man fantasized about. His need to dominate, splintered by drugs and alcohol, re-emerged after rehab, and helped him gain undeniable strength. That strength focused on the broken little bird, begging for release from the cage of her memories. Guarded by a fierce she-cat Domme, Lydia is ready to scratch out the eyes of any man unwilling to take “No” for an answer.

Can two wounded warriors find love in each other arms? And, can the ultimate Bad Boy Dom win the girl?

My Review: HOT, emotional, sexy and an all-around terrific and engrossing read that touches the reader very deep down inside. Well that’s what it did for me. It actually touched me so very deeply that I cried and cried some more, both tears of sadness and happiness. A very sensual and endearing reading experience that any fans of the genre will fully enjoy!

Kris lives the rock star life, well some of it any way. He’s a very talented extremely hot musician with many truly impressive skills. He carries himself as he should and shows only what he wants to. He has deep hidden cracks within his heart, soul and person that are in need of repair. After winning a battle with a disease known as abuse and addiction of drugs and alcohol, he’s ready to face the world with clearer sight. But is he ready to help another after he just got through helping himself?

Angela is a troubled soul. Her past haunts her in ways that cause her emotional and physical break downs. She’s hurting, badly. She experienced a very traumatic past and feels as if she’s broken, so broken she’s beyond repair. She’s truly a beautiful woman with a soul that is just as amazing. She craves what many woman want, someone to love, honor and cherish her and she can do the very same for. But she has yet to find one to fit the bill. When Kris walks into Club El Diablo her heart seems to instantly claim him. But should she listen?

I absolutely adored this story (if you've not been able to tell). The characters, setting, everything is just fantastic. So vivid and gripping that you'll not want to put it down for a second. I warn you. Have tissues handy because you’re going to need them. Holly Roberts ROCKS!

Review Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center (Brie #1-9)

"Brie Learns the Art of Submission"
Author: Red Phoenix
Genre: Erotic/BDSM
Pages: 479
Source: I own a signed paperback
Published: November 20, 2012

Buy Links: Amazon US

Goodreads Blurb: First published as the popular nine-part eBook serial, Brie Learns the Art of Submission is now available as a full-length novel.

Join Brianna Bennett as she is introduced to the erotic world of submission...

Brie's life changes the day Sir comes to her tiny tobacco shop. His invitation to the Submissive Training Center is about to rock this young woman's world. The renowned school is famous for its elite submissive instruction. She has no idea what will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed. One thing is certain: Brie is about to learn more about herself in six weeks than she has over the previous twenty-two years.

From formal classes, hands-on practicums and weekly auctions, Brie will confront her deepest fears and desires. In the process, she will also forge lifelong friendships with fellow submissives and fall for several of the Center's skilled Doms.

As graduation day approaches things begin to unravel, forcing Brie to make an unexpected choice of Master. Which Dom will ultimately earn her devotion and capture Brie's courageous heart?

Adult Material (18+)

My Review: Red Phoenix has compiled each of Brie’s (I’ll call them chapters) of training into one grand slam of a book! It is one magnificent and sexy adventure of a submissive going through all of the motions to become a perfect sub. This is one book that any BDSM erotic reader will fully enjoy and definitely end up be addicted to.

Brie is an exceptional woman whose life changes drastically after a male customer leaves a card on the counter of her work place. Curiosity killed the cat, satisfaction brought it back. That being said Brie decides to take the chance and train to become a submissive. After she spoke to a representative of the training center and completed the required process for admission to the classes, let's say, WOW! From there Brie blossoms, grows in many ways and meets many new people, both Dom and sub that all add on to the experience, for both Brie and the reader. She learns more about herself than she ever thought possible. Practices things that will make ones toes curl and she becomes one lovely submissive that any dominant will adore :)

This book is a must have in my eyes. One that fans of the genre will read over and over again. If you want a great, meaningful, very well written, imaginative and lovingly created story, with a side of EXTREMELY hot sex (and kink), right here is your book! I look forward to much more of Red Phoenix’s work and hope to see a new release VERY soon!

A Devil's Touch (The Devil DeVere #4.5) by Victoria Vane

"A Devil's Touch"
Author: Victoria Vane
Genre: Historical Romance
Pages: 68
Source: Author in exchange for an honest review.
Published: February 14, 2013
Author's Website:

Buy Links: Amazon

Goodreads Blurb: In her last month of pregnancy, Diana, Viscountess DeVere, has barely settled into her new life and role as "the devil" DeVere's wife, when her increasingly restlesss husband receives an urgent summons to London. When Diana inadvertently discovers a message he received from a known courtesan with whom he was formerly linked, she fears her marriage is over before it has begun.

My Review: Another great addition to The Devil DeVere series. Even though short, it is very satisfying and this one gave us an incredible and wonderful insight on where Diana and DeVere now stand. An enjoyable addition to add for any fans of the genre reading collection. I do however recommend reading ALL before this one of the series so you will have the true appreciation for how far the characters have come.

DeVere is HOT! I’ve loved him from the very start, faults and all. This man is just… insane, funny, fun and he has an incredible mind! His character has grown, matured and it is a wonderful thing to have experienced his transitioning into an even more incredibly desirable male.

Diana has mellowed out, a lot. She’s currently pregnant with her and DeVere’s first child and is going through the phases of pregnancy, feeling unattractive and unloved. Little does she know the real reasoning behind the lack of usual attention is formed by nothing by true love and devotion…

I love these two together and it makes me happy to see them still incredibly blissful and to have such a blessing that they received in this installment. Are we going to get any more Victoria? I know I want another one, or two :)

~ Book Spotlight/Author Feature/Giveaway with Victoria Vane ~


A reluctant heiress resigned to her fate… Mary Elizabeth Edwardes has one of the largest fortune's in England, but has no desire to leave her quiet country existence… and even less to acquire a husband she cannot choose for herself. 

A dissolute nobleman bent on retribution… Trapped in a duplicitous existence since scandal destroyed his fortune and family name, Lord Hadley Blanchard has spent the better part of a decade posing as a disaffected exile while spying and seducing in the service of the English Crown.

A dangerous game of seduction, and intrigue… When summoned from abroad by a former lover, Lord Hadley perceives an opportunity for vengeance at last. By employing the full measure of his seductive charm, he woos the ward of the man who destroyed his life, little knowing that winning Mary's fortune will mean risking his own treacherous heart.

TREACHEROUS TEMPTATIONS was very much inspired by the dark and romantic novels of the 18th century in which virtue vs. vice and plots to despoil virgins were very popular themes, books like Clarissa Harlowe by Samuel Richardson or Les Liaisons Dangereuses by LaClos. Similar to these classic tales, my story features an innocent country girl who, unlike the former heroines, is neither insipid nor naive, but still inadvertently becomes a pawn in a deadly game of revenge and intrigue.


"Darling, I never thought you obtuse. You must wed the chit before someone else claims her fortune."
"Wed her?" the words jarred him out of his ruminations. "Is your mind disordered of a sudden, Barbara? I have no plans to wed anyone. Ever."
She gave him a petulant look. "But how else do you suppose we are to get our hands on her money?"
"Is that the scheme you had in mind when you wrote me? To bilk an unwary young heiress of her fortune?"
"Brilliant, isn't it?" She laughed. "I told you I had discovered a means of getting it all back—and so much more. She is exceedingly rich and once we have the money, it should be no trouble at all to secure the influence needed to restore your title."
"How much?" he asked, veiling his interest. "What is the girl actually worth?"
She crawled onto his lap and laved her tongue up his neck. "That information will come at a price." She was begging to be taken again and Hadley felt nothing…or rather nothing but an immense sense of relief that he was over her. He jerked his head away. "I'm not in the mood for any more games."
"Pity," she pouted. "Have you another lover now, Hadley? Or perhaps you have developed a penchant for Venice's unnatural pleasures? Most well-travelled men do, you know. And I confess your valet was an exceptionally pretty creature."
"How much?" he repeated icily, ignoring her insinuation.
She sighed. "I can't begin to tell you how much work that took to discover. Sir Richard is tediously protective of her assets."
"Sir Richard? What has he to do with this?" Hadley demanded.
"Yes, darling," she rolled her eyes. "That same obnoxious boor. Did I not tell you the girl is his ward?"
"That girl is Sir Richard's ward?" When the girl in the music room had introduced herself as Mary Elizabeth Edwardes he had not made the connection, but then again, wily Sir Richard had taken care not to reveal anything about the Edwardes heir.
"One and the same my love, and worth every bit of fifty thousand a year! That plump little pigeon is one of the richest women in England, and thanks to me, she is yours for the plucking."
The blood roared in his ears. It was just too bloody good to be true. The very one who held his lands was residing under Barbara's roof. The girl was not only the means to a large fortune but also of revenge. "That certainly does throw a different light on matters." He took heed not to betray his growing excitement. "But you and I both know Sir Richard would see me hanged before granting consent for me to wed his ward."
She smiled. "Who said anything about seeking his consent?"
"You intend for me to despoil her to force a marriage? My dear Barbara, such rude and crass methods don't suit me at all. The entire thing lacks finesse."
She scowled. "Then how else do you propose we get control of her fortune?"
"I would propose gaining the girl's good faith and cooperation."
"And then what? Do you think she will just hand it over to you?"
"Something very close to that."
"You are overly confident."
"Not at all," he laughed. "I have never failed to achieve my object where a woman was concerned, nor has any ever complained of my methods." 

A lover of history and deeply romantic stories, Victoria combines these elements to craft romantic historical novels and novellas for a mature reading audience. Her writing influences are Georgette Heyer for fabulous witty dialogue and over the top characters, Robin Schone, Sylvia Day, and Charlotte Featherstone for beautifully crafted prose in stories with deep sensuality, and Lila DiPasqua for creative vision in melding history with eroticism.
