Cover Reveal for #BIGFOOT'S REVENGE by Author @Tawny_Savage #tabooerotica #rubenesque

Welcome to Sassy Vixen Publishing! Today we're thrilled to reveal the new cover for the final novella in Tawny Savage's Bigfoot Chronicles. The trilogy is moving up the charts and bringing more readers to the monster erotica genre. Many are discovering a whole new world of books and authors they've never seen before and we love it! Tawny has enjoyed herself writing this series and we hope she'll give us more tales about the Forest people.

For now, we've set a tentative release date for June 2014. We're excited about another bit of news—all three parts of the trilogy will be released together in one collection as an eBook and in print format. That may come out in July or August. We'll keep you informed of the finalized dates as soon as we lock them in. 

Now for what you've all been waiting for...

Many secrets will be revealed about the connections between the Forest People, the humans sworn to protect them, and those hell bent on destroying them. 

Ashar's world is turned upside down from revelations that could change his relationship with Bryanna forever. Will Etsey's secrets tear apart the couple and jeopardize the future of the Forest People?

Bryanna's caught between two worlds: one she never knew existed and one she was brought up in. All she knew about her grandmother turns out to be a lie...and Etsey holds the key.

Will Travis let go of Bryanna without a fight or will he do everything in his power to destroy her and her Bigfoot lover?

All these questions and more will be answered in the last of the trilogy: Bigfoot's Revenge (The Bigfoot Chronicles 3)

Welcome to Sensuous Promo’s Give Me Shelter Book Tour.


Give Me Shelter By Alexis D. Craig  

Inspector Eli Miller's unspoken feelings for his partner, Bex, color his whole life. When his past comes calling, will it be the push he needs to seek a future with her?

Inspector Rebecca 'Bex' Mulcahy has lived long enough to know that love is a street con at best, and a dangerous distraction at worst. Any feelings she has for her partner Eli definitely fall into the latter category. Will her dedication to her job keep her from finding a possible future with Eli?Their latest case is protecting Violet Burrell, a young woman with scars on her soul stretching back to birth, who inadvertently witnesses a shockingly brutal murder at the hands of a sadist. Violet is determined to testify in court. Her strength and courage impress Eli and Bex, who will protect her at all costs.

But it is Violet’s beauty and spirit that entrances Junior Inspector Atticus Randall. Atticus is also assigned to protect Violet, and while he knows he should ignore his growing feelings for her, he just can’t stop himself from falling for the brave beauty.

Life in the Las Vegas branch of Witness Protection has never been more tangled. When the emotional landmines start a chain reaction, everyone in the blast radius is going to need a little shelter.

The door to the conference room closing may as well have been the prison door on a twenty year stretch. Bex’s witness, one Violet Burrell (née Bukowski), sat across the table from them, seeming surprisingly untroubled by her current circumstances. Reading a book, listening to her MP3  player, she appeared like any other teenager. He set the file on the table and held the chair for Bex, and then Violet looked up and the floor dipped beneath his feet.
Her kohl-rimmed eyes were blue, a strange, deep blue that was almost amethyst, offsetting her pale skin and full, purple-stained lips. Her jet black hair was slicked back into a severe bun at the base of her skull, matching the jet black dress that caused AR, their 25-year-old junior inspector and de facto office assistant, to catch a case of the vapors when she’d walked into the office, clinging in places he didn’t even know he should be dreaming about. It was funny to watch, for about a minute, before his mind betrayed him with a recollection that was almost old enough to drink.
“Marshals.” Her smile was faint, polite, and distant.
“Vi, this is Marshal Miller. He’ll be assisting with your transition.”
“Nice to meet you.” She didn’t offer her hand, which was just as well. Caressing him with her hypnotic eyes, the corners of her mouth turned up in a grin that bordered on indecent and Eli felt the walls in the room start to inch just a bit closer. It was then he noticed the book she’d been reading, bright green, unmarked cover closed around a bookmark of a skull with a pink bow, the spine betraying the title: Lady Chatterley’s Lover . The lump in his throat ballooned to cantaloupe-sized proportions.
Eli nodded, not trusting himself to speak. The look Bex gave him was probably going to leave scars, but he shook his head slightly as he opened the file again and studied it diligently. Everything but the picture, the picture was a lot more than he could deal with at the moment, especially once confronted with the reality.
“He means to say ‘nice to meet you, too’, but his manners are still out at the dry cleaners.” He felt the moment her green eyes turned from him to her witness, and he relaxed ever so slightly.

“They do get filthy sometimes, or so I’m told.” And she had jokes, dark humor with a dash of double entendre, in her soft voice, the color of a New England autumn. The Fates should probably just kill him now to save on the paperwork.

#TantailizingTuesdays: Author @DakotaSkye69 Stops in to Celebrate BLURRED LINES #eroticromance #paranormal

Welcome to a Tantalizing Tuesday post here at Sassy Vixen Publishing. We're thrilled to celebrate the brand new release by one of our friends author Dakota Skye.

Blurred Lines is the first paranormal erotic romance from Dakota and we hope it is the start of many more to come. This one centers on a love triangle between the heroine and two male lovers—one just happens to be a ghost! Come on in, take a seat and check out Dakota's novel.


Letting go is like a death. Sierra never thought she would be caught in a love triangle between her writing partner, Alex, and the love of her life, Shane—especially because her ex-fiancé is now a ghost. Tormented with both guilt for moving on with someone else and a desire to be free of the past, she's pulled between both men. Shane struggles with accepting his death and seeing the woman he loves with someone else. Alex is determined to free Sierra from limbo and change their relationship from casual to serious, but the bond she has with Shane transcends death. One of the three needs to let go.

Only the good die young. When Shane Weston is murdered before prosecuting a key member of the Mexican drug cartel, he can't accept the idea that all of the plans he had had for his life will never come true. More than that, he can't let go of the love he has for his fiancée.

Love never dies. Sierra Daniels is crushed after Shane's death. Head writer on a successful television series, she can't get back into the groove of life. All enthusiasm for work is gone. Ready to quit everything, she travels to her cabin in Lake Tahoe in hopes of escaping everyone's expectations and disappearing for a while.

The lines between right and wrong often blur. Alexander Blaine has risked his future on a career change from DEA agent to lead consultant and writer on hit television series. Sierra's grief has shadowed everyone around her, including him, and jeopardizes both of their careers. Unwilling to accept defeat, he follows her to Lake Tahoe determined to break through the barrier enveloping her and make her see that life is still worth living. 


She walked into the bathroom to brush her teeth. When she looked into the mirror, she saw Shane's reflection standing behind her. When she turned, no one.
"Why are you doing this to me?" she asked the empty space.
"I love you so much, Sierra." A whisper. Faint. Barely noticeable.
Every inch of her pulsated with restrained emotion. She gripped the edge of the sink with both hands and cried because she felt torn between wanting the confusion to stop and needing it to be real to save her sanity. Some days it took all of her strength simply to fake normalcy.
She'd cheated with another man. Right or wrong, that's what it felt like. She had had sex with Alex and loved it, wanted to do it again. But if Shane still existed, wasn't it wrong? Confusion rocked her world.
She held onto the sink as if were the only thing keeping her upright. Sobs began deep in her gut before ripping through her body with deep convulsions. Silent screams caught in her throat. Tears she'd been battling to hold back for too long streamed from her eyes. Unchecked.
She'd come here wanting to quit her job and her life, to hide away, to give up. All of these months spent working and fighting and pretending to have it all together had taken a toll. She couldn't do it anymore. She had come here to break down.
A ghost? How many times in the last months had she prayed Shane would walk in the door and tell her it had all been a mistake? Why hadn't he come to her then? Why now?
Every inch of her vibrated with unrestrained agony. For an hour, she'd felt normal again, with Alex of all people, and it had felt damn good. But now guilt ate her up like an infection devouring her from the inside out. Each sob abused her body and twisted her gut into knots. She couldn't stop. She'd held the grief at bay for too long and now it had busted loose.
"It's okay." Alex wrapped his arms around her from behind and whispered against her hair, "I'm here. You need to trust someone, let it be me. It's going to be all right. I'm not leaving. I'm here."
She turned within the circle of his arms; eyes closed for fear of seeing Shane's face again, and gripped Alex's shoulders as if he were a lifeline.
She cried, unable to hide her pain any longer. Tears of both confusion and sorrow fell. She clung to the one man she'd never anticipated trusting or needing while he whispered against her hair, "I'm here, it's going to be okay."
"Sometimes I feel like I'll never be normal again," she confided against his shoulder once the sobs had subsided and her voice returned.
"It's all going to be exactly as it needs to be."
But that's what she worried about...that she'd go so far away from what she'd ever known herself to be that she'd be lost forever. She'd been fighting to hold on to who she'd been with Shane and who'd she'd been before him. The two images didn't mesh and the battle seemed pointless.
What if surrendering—accepting—meant that she'd be like this, an angry woman who couldn't break free of the sadness? Every fiber of her being begged her to stop fighting; she didn't know if she had the strength for surrender.
