A Dom, a naughty games tester, a suave ghost, a successful businessman and--Robin Hood? Yep, these are the heroes of today's crop of new releases from Ellora's Cave. Happy Friday. Oo la la!

Under His Thumb by Vonna Harper
A handshake at a remote mountain lodge becomes a powerful grip. With the sudden change, Meka Morgan is lifted out of the familiar and safe, and thrust into an evening of submission and fantasy. At first shocked by her capture, she soon embraces everything the powerful stranger offers, including his bindings and sexual mastery. Moment by moment, touch by touch, she surrenders her body and more. He knows her better than she does herself, particularly how to explore her secret need to be dominated. But Meka is a woman of today. She craves answers and explanations, and her captor holds the key to all of them—and much, much more.

Sexy Games by April Ash
Months earlier Stacy Newman and Sloane Hoffman shared a night of passion, but a panicked Sloane left without a word when Stacy inspired thoughts of commitment and settling down. His disappearance left her heartsick. As game partners for the Naughty Games Company, they'll test games that require role-playing and sex. Undeniable lust and mutual desire quickly resurface and they agree to a business-only venture. They choose games that launch plenty of sex and inspire them to have their own creative and sexy fun. Spending time together offers chances to learn more about each other and share passionate sexual adventures, maybe even fall in love—but only if they can get past the misunderstandings threatening to pull them apart.

Heart of a Forest by Angelia Sparrow & Naomi Brooks
In 1199, King Richard the Lion-Hearted lay dying in France. He commanded his lover, Sir David of Doncaster, to protect his small son by any means necessary. Marion Fitzroy, princess of the blood on the wrong side of the blankets, now lives a constrained life in Nottingham castle, dreaming of her childhood betrothed, the son of the Earl of Locksley. As the Barons' War rages around her uncle King John, her dispossessed fiancĂ©—now called Robin Hood—and his merry irregulars make life miserable for Phillip, the sheriff of Nottingham. And fires Marion's blood. Robin, for his part, is about to learn the secret that Marion guards with her life. Thwarting Phillip's gambits for Marion's hand, a doubled price on his head, even shooting for an arrow of pure gold all pale next to the pleasures to be had under Marion's skirts, deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest. But Marion is no ordinary woman, no ordinary princess. In fact, her body isn't a woman's at all.

If Not For You by J.L. Wilson
Businessman Max Lerner had it all — until the threats started. Someone wants to sabotage his latest merger, and that someone has inexplicably thrown Layla Whitford into the fray. When Max meets Layla, she turns his world upside down. Suddenly, Max wants to forget about the merger, the threats…his bachelor lifestyle. Layla has rebounded from a divorce and started over in the Twin Cities, testing software for a small computer company. When she receives a threatening letter, she gives it to the authorities. But the letter was meant for Max Lerner, an uptight Suit from Tieland who places business first. When Layla is kidnapped, it isn't about business anymore. For Max, it's about the safety of this crazy woman he's fallen in love with. Now Max has to find Layla, shore up the merger and squash rumors of software piracy — all in a matter of hours. If they can accomplish all that, surely Max and Layla can find a way for an ex-hippie and a business-driven CEO to find a happily-ever-after — can't they?
