Barbas, the Demon of Healing, has a secret. One he'd do anything to keep. Until the day that he meets his sworn enemy and finds himself drawn into her world. Certainly a Demon strong enough to survive being chained for a millennium beneath the Earth's crust can resist one virginal princess when she demands his help. To reveal the truth would make him a traitor to his people. So why does deceiving the princess make him feel like a traitor to his heart? Warning: This erotic romance novella contains sex outdoors, virginal sex, sex between sworn enemies, and lots of smokin' hot Demon and Fae sex! This futuristic fantasy romance series is set in the near future after a massive earthquake unleashes magickal Demons who have been trapped beneath the Earth's crust for the last thousand years. When they burst to the surface, their energy fries all electrical systems and throws the Human world into an industrial apocalypse. In this post-apoc, dystopian world Humans are caught between the warring Demons and their mortal enemy, the Fae. Demons and Fae draw magickal power from Human emotions. Each side gains victories and suffers defeats. But lately the Demons have been increasing in power exponentially, while the Fae are growing weaker. But the Fae have plans to change their luck

Spice Box Title: The Kraken's Mirror (The Kraken's Caribbean #1) Author: Maureen O. Betita Genre: Hot Romance Adventure Published Date: January 6, 2014  

Captain Alan Silvestri is a man haunted by a strange curse. Good luck is his to command, but it comes at the cost of any place to call home or people to reckon as family. Resigned to die and shunned by all, he is forced to sail every three days, until he begins to dream of a special woman. Treated by our youth-oriented society as invisible and sexless, Emily Pawes is ready to move on with life. She attends a pirate festival, hoping to recapture the make-believe magic she knew as a young woman. Lucky to win an interesting bit of booty at a brick-a-brac stand, she finds herself transported by the Kraken's mirror through a magical portal to a land of Hollywood piratitude, where swashbuckling heroes own iPods. With little choice, Emily embraces the madness. Playing pirate has to be safer than falling into the arms of handsome Captain Silvestri, right? When they meet, sparks fly, passion flares. He needs her to be free, but more than that, he needs her to be whole. Setting sail and uncertain of who actually controls the wheel, they seek ways to defeat his curse of good luck and discover the Kraken's mirror has plans for them. Will Emily stay in this pirate haven to fight alongside him or will he lose her because of his curse?

Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey photo 19065715_zpsb156c0d4.jpg

Title: Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Gray
Author: Riley J. Ford Genre: An Erotic Romance Parody/Romantic Comedy Published Date: February 10, 2013
What happens when you try 50 Shades in the REAL world?   When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache. The unworldly but focused Ben decides he will do anything to rekindle his sex life, including imitating the erotic techniques of billionaire Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades series. Unable to withstand the pent-up ache radiating from his tender blue testicles, Ben decides to take Grey's methods to a whole new level in order to relieve the pressure on his . . . er, marriage. Shocked by her husband's unusual plan, Kate Weaver hesitates in giving him what he desires. But for all his trappings of non-success--his ordinary accounting job where coworkers steal his sandwiches and brag about their sex lives, his lack of wealth, his inability to seduce his own wife--Ben is a man with one saving talent: the driving determination to reignite his sex life no matter what it takes. When the couple embarks on a daring and dangerous physical adventure, Kate discovers her husband's fanatical zeal to explore all of Christian Grey's darkest desires, with calamitous results. Erotic, hilarious, and highly disturbing, Fifty Shades of Fifty Shades of Grey is a spin-off that will titillate you, amuse you, and stay with you until the next erotic romance crosses your Kindle.

When she discovers Adam asleep in his bed, she slips between his sheets and attributes his achingly gentle touch to his mellow state.

Eternal Ever After photo 18891482_zpse80b7939.jpg

    Spice Box Title: Eternal Ever After (Ever After #1) Author: A.C. James Genre: Paranormal Romance Erotica Published Date: April 3, 2014

His past holds a secret... Arie Cush has a secret that he thought he'd left behind. When his past follows him to Chicago he must protect someone that reminds him of all the painful memories he's tried so hard to forget. But when every touch from her sets his heart and body on fire--he finds it hard to maintain his aloof façade. ...that becomes her nightmare. Holly Ellis has secrets of her own. An encounter with the handsome stranger who frequents her coffee shop reveals a vampire with baggage. Even though it might be more than she bargained for, she can't resist the one person who understands her. But her life is in danger and a supernatural threat could reveal the underground world of vampires to humankind in this Gothic Cinderella re-telling. Heat Level: This book is a steamy romance. It's the development of a romantic relationship that contains more explicit language and sex. The sex is not an inherent part of the story, character growth, or relationship development, and if removed you still have an amazing plot. Warning: This book is fictitious. The bdsm portrayed in this story does not portray the lifestyle. Vampires will be vampires. They don't exactly stop to discuss a scene, pain thresholds, and there is no aftercare involved. Trust is an intrinsic part of the lifestyle. Use due diligence and research before deciding to make fiction into reality.

She’ll dominate your desires until the very last page that climaxes in a happily ever after.

Author Interview + Giveaway (IN Only)- Love Lasts Forever... by Vikrant Khanna

Hi, guys! We have a fun interview and a great giveaway lined up for you today. We have with us author of  Srishti Publihers and Distributors' latest release, Love Lasts Forever..., Vikrant Khanna, who has kindly answered our questions and has generously offered to give away two signed copies of his book to two lucky Indian readers. Before we get onto the main parts of this post, let's take a look at the author and book details. 

So you think your love can last forever…? Get married!
Eighteen year old Ronit falls madly in love with Aisha the moment he meets her at his graduation day from a naval college. He believes he has found his perfect soul mate, and come what may, his love for her will last forever. Seven years later, he gets married to her. Big mistake!
A week later he completely hates her and believes she has turned into a devil.
But his perception about love and life change when he hears the poignant love story of Shekhar, his Captain, on a ship that later gets hijacked by the pirates of Somalia.
As they are left fighting for their lives they confront if love truly can last forever…? But does it get too late?


Vikrant Khanna is a captain in the merchant navy. When he is not busy working or penning down his ideas, he likes to capture the beauty of nature on his camera. He was brought up in Delhi and studied at Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar. His first book "When life tricked me", published in 2011 is anational bestseller and has been widely appreciated by young readers. His interests apart from writing include playing the guitar, composing songs and cooking. A complete arts afficionado, we would say...




Hi Vikrant! Welcome to The Readdicts. We are glad to have you on our blog today and we hope you have a fun time answering our questions. Let’s get to it!

1)  Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a Captain in merchant navy, been sailing for the past decade. I love a great story be it in the form of a book, a movie, or theatre.

2)  Tell us about your book, Love Lasts Forever.

Love lasts forever is a story of youth, of falling in love, then falling out of love and taking your love for granted when you are blessed with it, and finally when put in a difficult spot in life realizing how much that love means to you. In this case the protagonist is stuck with the pirates of Somalia.

3)  Do you believe that love lasts forever? What’s the inspiration behind the book title?

Absolutely, love can lasts forever. The title basically reflects the theme of the book, and I believe it is also catchy.

4)  Are any of the characters in your book inspired by someone you know or are they complete results of your imagination?

My characters are all fictional, and a complete work of my imagination. I like to be very thorough with my characters and I think a lot about them before beginning to write.

5)  Tell us why readers should pick up your book.

Apart from being a love story it is also a thriller. The book highlights the true hardship sailors have to go through under the captivity of pirates. The story is different and unique but at its heart it’s a true love story.

6)  How important are book events and book launches for you?

If the idea is to make people aware of a book, they are good. They shouldn’t try too hard to push sales.

Review- The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna


Eva's life is not her own. She is a creation, an abomination—an echo. She was made by the Weavers as a copy of someone else, expected to replace a girl named Amarra, her "other," if she ever died. Eva spends every day studying that girl from far away, learning what Amarra does, what she eats, what it's like to kiss her boyfriend, Ray. So when Amarra is killed in a car crash, Eva should be ready.

But sixteen years of studying never prepared her for this.

Now she must abandon everything and everyone she's ever known—the guardians who raised her, the boy she's forbidden to love—to move to India and convince the world that Amarra is still alive.

What Eva finds is a grief-stricken family; parents unsure how to handle this echo they thought they wanted; and Ray, who knew every detail, every contour of Amarra. And when Eva is unexpectedly dealt a fatal blow that will change her existence forever, she is forced to choose: Stay and live out her years as a copy or leave and risk it all for the freedom to be an original. To be Eva.

From debut novelist Sangu Mandanna comes the dazzling story of a girl who was always told what she had to be—until she found the strength to decide for herself.


I went into The Lost Girl without expecting much. I thought it would be an okay read. I was completely wrong. The Lost Girl blew me away with its uniqueness and its beautiful portrayal of grief. I hate reading sad books cause they always depress me but I loved The Lost Girl and that's saying something.

Eva is an echo. That means she has been created to learn and replicate her "other", Amarra's life. If Amarra ever dies, Eva has to replace her. She has spent sixteen years of her life studying Amarra and Eva does not have her own existence. I loved Eva. I don't even know how to describe her strength and determination. I admired her.

I loved that Eva was always fighting for her own self, for her own identity. She wanted to be Eva and not Amarra though if Amarra didn't exist in the first place, neither would she. Then there's Sean. He knows and likes Eva for who she is. Sean and Eva have an unbreakable bond and though the focus of the book is Eva I loved the parts in which they were together.

When Eva comes to India to lead her life as an echo she meets all the people who were present in Amarra's life. I loved how the author has shown Bangalore. I have been to Bangalore once or twice and I think they description of the city fit perfectly. I loved the authenticity.

I loved a few characters and a few made me horribly angry. The Lost Girl brings out every single emotion in you, which is hard to do. The book reels you in from the first chapter itself and I couldn't put it down till I saw what happened with Eva. I like my endings neatly tied up and that was not the case with The Lost Girl. But I think it just added to the book's charm. I thoroughly enjoyed The Lost Girl. Sangu Mandanna has made me a fan.

Waiting on Wednesday #91

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Archangel's Shadows by Nalini Singh
Publication Date: October 28, 2014


Return to New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s sensual and painfully beautiful Guild Hunter world in her new novel of sacrifice, loyalty, and the choices of love that can shatter the heart.

In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.

This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…

Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

I adore Nalini Singh and after devouring this series I can't wait for Ash and Janvier's story! :)
What are you waiting on?
