One look at the human female who is his match and the mating fever of the Vesti ignites in Miciah, making it impossible for him to deny what he wants. To go to Earth and claim her, he must choose an Amato co-mate. For him there is only one choice, the bisexual Iden. It’ll mean breaking the cultural taboos of the Vesti, but for Zoë, he and Iden will become lovers.
As the only sister of four bossy brothers, Casey McCain is used to being overprotected and cared for. What she isn’t used to, however, is the overwhelming need to give herself completely to another, namely Jared Calabrese. When their relationship progresses and Casey is presented with Jared’s collar, she runs scared.
Jared has had enough of Casey’s evasion of him and their relationship. He sets a plan in motion to show Casey there is no weakness in being submissive, in being owned by him. He not only overwhelms her with his presence, throwing them together whenever possible, but he also shows Casey how others in the BDSM lifestyle live so she understands there is no one right way. Jared plans not only to win Casey back but to capture her, heart, body and soul, and he’ll use whatever means necessary to see the job done.
Tell me you're dirty. Tell me you're bad. With those hastily spoken words, Brenden Morgan displaces yet another goody-two-shoes girlfriend—and he isn’t sorry to see her go. What Brenden requires is a wild woman. One who’ll eagerly submit whenever he’s in the mood to play with the exotic belt collection he’s spent years acquiring…
But a man is the last thing Sara Foster needs. After four failed marriages, she’s learned her lesson—no more relationships. So she’s completely unprepared when Brenden struts into her life. He’s charming. Bossy. Devilishly dominant. And as Sara soon realizes, this is no run-of-the-mill man but a caveman. Clubbing down the walls she has fortified around her heart, one alligator-skinned stroke at a time.

An Ellora's Cave book being taught in college? Yep. Last summer, a DePaul University romance fiction seminar featured Joey Hill's NATURAL LAW. Associate Professor of English Eric Selinger called the presentation "a knockout charged with an almost evangelical fervor" on Romancing the Blog. As a result, she was invited to speak at a Princeton University conference.
Here's what Ms. Hill had to say about her experience:
I worship Laura Kinsale, so to be part of the same curriculum with her work was a breathtaking moment. Anyhow, in that way that stars converge, I was about to send an email to Eric Selinger to thank him, when he contacted me. He and William Gleason of Princeton University were planning a conference focusing on the romance genre called “Love as the Practice of Freedom: Romance Fiction and American Culture” and wanted me to attend. Do you want to know how long it took me to get my stunned fingers unstuck to fashion a reply (lol)?
Eric was also very kind when I thanked him for using Natural Law: "Natural Law was a hit--students really responded to it as a love story; indeed, one of the women who'd been most skeptical throughout the class was positively evangelical about how realistic the book felt to her, emotionally speaking. I'll let you know how it teaches this summer!”
How did Natural Law get on his text reading list? Apparently, one of my long term readers, Sarah Frantz, is an assistant professor of literature at Fayetteville State University and a friend of Eric’s. My understanding is when he was looking for suggestions for the “erotic” portion of his romance course, she suggested Natural Law. Though her very modest quote was “I didn't do anything really, besides recommend some of my favorite romances for him when he asked. Just like I always do!” Sarah also has been working on a paper now that’s going to be in an anthology of scholarly essays about romance that she and Eric are editing and will be published by McFarland Press. She says my books will be mentioned in that as well, so I’m looking forward to getting my copy!
