I love a tall, cold glass of mojito. Refreshing! I’m supposed to share my recipe right now, but I can assure you I’m not that formal with my alcohol.
Crush up some mint leaves in a glass, add sugar, squeezed lime and ice and mix. Then I usually just pour in a splash of rum because I am a total lightweight.
Now let’s talk about something fun and sexy to go with that. I read this book earlier in the summer, and it sure got steamy. It’s a really interesting writing style, and at first was a little confusing, but then I really got into it.
SUBMISSION IS HER ONLY ESCAPE…
And punishment takes many forms. Seeking escape from her criminal past, a woman agrees to enslave herself to a trio of men who own an antiquated Louisiana plantation.
Known only as Lydia, she becomes controlled by three very different men – the malicious Preston, the inflexible Kruin, and the gentle Gabriel, all of whom introduce her to a world in which the lines between pleasure, pain and shame are irrevocably blurred. The plantation becomes both Lydia’s haven and her prison as she surrenders to the desires of her unholy trinity.
Lydia’s submission is fraught with tension and hunger, but what happens when the outside world enters her dark, anonymous sanctuary?

He tempts her, but kindness and a few mindblowing orgasms aren’t enough to put her back together again. Allie has no hope for a real relationship. Two years ago her best friend betrayed her in the worst possible way – she’d be stupid to trust a man again. Besides, she has her daughter to think of, the only good thing to have come from that dark night.
But when her rapist returns, threatening her sanity and custody of her daughter, Allie turns to Colin. Under his protection and patient touch, Allie begins to heal and learns to hope. Colin’s no saint, though, and his criminal past draws danger of its own. Allie must fight to protect her child and the man she loves, hoping her newfound power will be enough to save them all.
