Book Banning is Just #RUDE

After writing a new book, as an author I feel a great sense of accomplishment.  You pour your heart and soul into the characters, love and nurture their scenes, and finally... you take a deep breath and release it into the world.  Well, unless you get an email telling you that your content isn't acceptable because of book racists!  That's the label I'm giving these companies that decide what adults can or cannot read.  It's no secret that my books are labeled for adults only.  I haven't released one single book that wasn't intended for a mature audience.  So why does Kobo, Apple, Tolino, and Scribd feel like they have the right to choose what you can read?

If I told you what religion you had to be, or what clothes you must wear today, you'd be pretty upset, right?  So shouldn't you be angry that these companies don't think you have the intelligence to know what books enter your electronic reader?  Just like you don't have to agree that all cops are bad, all white people are racist, and all black people are criminals, all books that touch on a topic some are uncomfortable with doesn't give you the right to ban them.  Labeling (something my daughter has been speaking out against recently) is WRONG!  Banning should be criminal.  Below is the correspondence I received concerning my new book, RUDE.  Which will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in Paperback June 5th.











As you can see from my response to Draft 2 Digital, my gorgeous twin brothers don't have a relationship together, but with the same woman. I'm not giving spoilers about the book but I will say that I'm a romance author who believes in a happily ever after.  I could go into a rant about how loving someone is never wrong regardless of race, sexual orientation, or any other factor, but I won't. I'll just put it out there that everyone has the RIGHT to love!  You can agree, disagree, or fly into a tangent about that truth, but that is my belief.

I'm a grown woman.  I write books for adults.  So in my opinion?  Book banning is just rude.  Book banning is wrong.  The only person who should decide what I read, is me.  That's my two cents for what it's worth.

*.•´¸ #RUDE is a stand-alone sexy romance novel •*´

Two sexy twin brothers that always share.  Everything. Including women!

Liam walked into my world and turned it upside down with his lickable abs, bedroom eyes, and alpha male persona.  He was sin personified and I wanted him to damn my soul.  Everything about him drew me in, daring me to step outside my comfort zone and forget all the rules I'd made to keep my heart safe.  He was rude, vulgar, and promised everything a good girl dreams about doing with a bad boy.

As if his temptation wasn't enough, his twin brother was thrown into the mix.  Luke was Liam's polar opposite in every way, except for his panty-melting looks.  Charming, respectful, and a man you wouldn't mind taking home to meet the parents. There couldn't be a more perfect man.  Put the two of them together and it was a combination no woman couldn't resist.  

I've never considered myself a prude, even though I was holding out for marriage.  How could I walk away from a night that fantasies were made of?  Liam told me that great sex was never boring.  It was dirty, passionate and always a little rude. All I had to do was say yes.  Two sexy twin brothers promising one hot night of unadulterated sex.

Would it be Rude to turn it down?

Caught - Erika Ashby & A.E. Woodward


Title: Caught
Author: Erika Ashby & A.E. Woodward
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2015


**New Adult novel coming from authors A.E. Woodward and Erika Ashby late this Spring**

There's this boy. 

He kinda owns my heart.

Who am I kidding?

He owns all of me--but he's completely oblivious to it.

And I can't tell him.

Because there's this girl.

And even though he's my best friend, she is too.

Then there's me...

CAUGHT between what feels so right, yet is so wrong.




Greg isn’t a bad looking guy. He’s not even slightly bad looking. In fact, he’s extremely good looking with his brutish looks. But that’s the thing – he’s just too beefy for my taste. He’s thick all over. Well, from what I can see, and what I’ve heard, he is. Which is good for him since most people think buff guys usually suffer from teeny weeny syndrome and they’re just trying to overcompensate in other ways.
His head is typically filled with blonde locks, but he shaved it off this summer. Maybe it was some sort of rugby initiation or whatever weird sport he’ll be playing in college.
“Excuse me, Greg?”
His head swings my way as if he was just waiting for me to call his name. His smile is wide and his hazel eyes are bright. He’s genuinely a happy guy. And that’s what I like about him. That’s why I’m able to look past his player ways and enjoy his company.
I do a quick glance up his muscly body from feet to face. His tan, smooth-looking legs are crossed at the ankle, reaching the other side of the truck as they’re stretched out. The colorful, geometric print trunks fully engulf his thighs, which is a plus. Guys shouldn’t wear more fitted clothes than I do. Then there’s his tank top. The non-existent fabric bunches loosely in the middle of his torso.
“Yes, Quinn?” he smirks.
“Your chesticles are showing.”
He glances down and laughs. “Is that a problem?”
“No.” I pop a grape in my mouth. “I just can’t stop staring.”
He laughs even harder and I try my best to refrain from it myself. I’m not looking to choke on a grape as we drive down the highway.
“Make em’ pop,” I demand as I lift my sunglasses to the top of my head for a better view.
“Do what?”
“You know.” I sit my grapes down and hold my hands in front of my own chest, moving my hands up and down. “Make them pop, dance, jiggle. Hell, make them rain for all I care. They have to be capable of doing something cool.”
“Oh, hell yeah. I’ve had that shit down since the seventh grade.” He straightens his back and positions his arms in some weird flex in front of him. Then he begins to make them pop, drop and lock it. I giggle like a little girl as I watch. His face makes it all the better as he seems to be straining. He looks constipated.
Without any inclination, I toss a grape at his tits. And with perfect precision he bounces his man boob just in time to deflect it. I play catch with his chest a little while longer before finally putting my earbuds in and relaxing.

Moroad MC Series #2 Author - Debra Kayn


Title: For Life
Series: Moroad MC Series #2
Author: Debra Kayn
Genre: April 7, 2015
Release Date: MC Romance

Cam Farrell, president of the Moroad Motorcycle Club, struggles to adjust to living on the outside after spending the last eighteen months in prison. Pressured to confess to his part in the crime of bringing his son into the club, he must make drastic changes to stay ahead of the law and prove to Christina he will never leave her again. The noose tightens as he faces the possibility of losing everything he's worked for within the Moroad MC. Can he save his club, his woman, his son, and his life?

Some people in Federal call Christina insane for loving a criminal, but Cam's presence has always provided her with an inner strength she's found nowhere else. Christina's worries increase when Cam arrives home more hardened, more violent, and more determined to continue the life of crime that has dictated his life. Caught between her fear of losing him and forcing Cam to fulfill his promises, Christina must face the truth. Love has no boundaries and some things are better off staying buried.




"Can we go home?" Christina gathered her hair to the side and picked the helmet off the seat. "Please."

Cam tapped the pack of smokes against his hand, then took one out and lit it. "I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what that guy did to you."

"God, Cam. Just drop it." She fastened the helmet and shook her head in anger. "It was nothing. You didn't have to threaten his life. All you're doing is making it worse."

"Do I need to kill him?"

"No!"

"Then what did he—"

"He asked if I needed help. If I was safe with you." She crossed her arms. "It's the same thing I hear every time I go to town. You want to know why I don't like coming into Federal? That's why. Suddenly, everyone knows I'm the woman who lives with a convict. I don't even know that man. I don't know anyone, but everyone in town knows who you are. They ask if I'm okay and need any help every time I'm here. I can't just walk into the store anymore and be invisible. The town is too small, and I seem to be everyone's favorite topic for the last year and a half."

He was a convict. Small town or not, no matter where he went, people would always sidestep away from him because he spent time in prison. He liked people keeping their distance. The less people in his business, the better. What he didn't like hearing was how it drew people to Christina, instead of frightening them away.

"That's one thing you're going to have to deal with, baby." He inhaled deeply, blowing the smoke out slowly. "I am who I am."

"I went my whole adult life staying away from people. When you left, you made the front page of the newspaper." She held up her fingers and quoted the air. "President of Moroad Motorcycle Club charged with being a felon in possession of a loaded weapon. Armed and dangerous."

He raised his brows. Out of his long list of crimes, carrying a pistol was the least of his concern. "Talk will settle down. It always does."

"I know." She laughed to cover a sob. "I just…"

He gave her time, but she held back. "What?"

"It hurts." She patted her chest. "Before you left none of this mattered. If people looked at me longer or whispered, I ignored them because I had you to come home to. I don't have you anymore."

"I'm here."

She tilted her head. "Are you? Cause since you've been home it feels like you left the man I know back in prison and gave me someone I no longer recognize."

He hooked her neck, bringing her to his chest. "We'll get through this."



Bestselling Romance Author, Debra Kayn lives with her family at the foot of the Bitterroot Mountains in beautiful Northern Idaho. She enjoys riding motorcycles, playing tennis, fishing, photography, and creating chaos for the men in the garage.

When Debra was nineteen years old, a man kissed her without introducing himself. When they finally came up for air, the first words out of his mouth were...will you have my babies? Considering Debra's weakness for a sexy, badass man, who is strong enough to survive her attitude, she said yes. A quick wedding at the House of Amour and four babies later, she's living her own unbelievable romance book.

Cherished - Release Day (Michelle Hughes)


Luca Phillips dropped me to my knees with a promise …

He was sexy and confident, absolutely brilliant and Luca wanted me.  I was infatuated from the first conversation, wanting to be what he needed.  For the first time in my life I understood what it meant to desire.  All he demanded was my trust.  I’d been broken by my past and doubted I could give that gift, no matter how badly I craved him.

Luca’s world was dark when looking in from the outside, but the light in his eyes promised something more.  Hope.  Together we could change the downward spiral my life was taking.  His words.

Kneeling at his feet, handing over control, he asked one question.  How far are you willing to go to be….
