My first feel of the Secret Library

It's not often that you can rave about the feel of a book. True, I do have a few treasured tooled leather books in my collection. You know, the ones where you can run your fingers over the patterns in relief, and where you turn to the frontispiece to find that wonderful swirly marbling in rainbow colours. But mostly these days, a book is a paperback and there's no temptation to trail your fingers across it or put it to your cheek. That's where the Secret Library books come in. With their black velvet covers, overlaying pastel gloss they are totally and utterly sensuous - and that's before you've even read what's inside.

I'm currently reading the works of my stable mates, Primula Bond and Sommer Marsden and very saucy they are too. Here's what Amazon has to say about the three novellas that come under the one title, The Thousand and One Nights. Three passionate novellas from The Secret Library range that offer essiential, sensual reading. The Thousand and One Nights Kitti Bernetti When Breeze Monaghan gets caught red-handed by her millionaire boss she knows she s in trouble. Big time. Because Breeze needs to keep her job more than anything else in the world. Sebastian Dark is used to getting exactly what he wants and now he has a hold over Breeze, he makes her an offer she can t refuse. Like Scheherazade in The 1001 Nights Seb demands that Breeze entertain him to save her skin. Can she employ all her ingenuity and sensuality in order to satisfy him and stop her world crashing about her? Or, like the ruthless businessman he is, will Seb go back on the deal? Out of Focus Primula Bond Eloise Stokes s first professional photography assignment seems to be a straightforward family portrait. But the rich, colourful Epsom family father Cedric, step-mother Mimi, twin sons Rick and Jake, and sister Honey are intrigued by her understated talent and she is soon sucked into their wild world. As the initial portrait sitting becomes an extended photo diary of the family over an intense, hot weekend, Eloise gradually blossoms until she is equally happy in front of the lens. The Highest Bidder Sommer Marsden Recent widow Casey Briggs is all about her upcoming charity bachelor auction. She doesn t have time for dating. Her heart isn t strong enough yet. But when one of their bachelors is arrested and she finds herself a hunky guy short, she employs her best friend Annie to find her a new guy pronto. Enter Nick Murphy handsome, kind, and not very hard to look at, thank you very much. And he quickly makes her feel things she hasn t felt in a while. A very long while. Casey s not sure if she s ready for it the whole moving on thing. But as she prepares to auction Nick off, she s discovering that her first hunch was correct he's damn near priceless.

Well, let's hope that's whetted your appetites. Available in all good bookshops as they say....... Also available as e-books from Xcite and Amazon
