Guest Blog and Giveaway!

Hello Everyone!

Today Tina Donahue has stopped by to share an exciting post and tell us about her new Ellora’s Cave release, Sinfully Wicked.

I’m Going to Hell


Yep, that’s right. I’m headed way down under to the devil’s playground.


I’ve been a bad girl with a capital ‘B’. As I was growing up, my mother—and then the teachers at the all girl schools I attended—warned me that I always had to be a lady. In deed. Thought. And words. Never doing or saying anything remotely sensual… not giving into my deliciously steamy fantasies.

Yeah, right. If I’m doomed for writing erotic romances so be it, ‘cause I’m having fun. My latest novel Sinfully Wicked is out now from Ellora’s Cave. Like SiNN, it’s a contemporary ménage. However, it’s even hotter than SiNN, filled with so many delicious scenes and sigh-worthy romance, it’s a treat like nothing else I’ve ever written.

Nikki, Mitch and Connor became my friends while I was writing Sinfully Wicked. Their desires mirror mine. Now, if only I can find two guys that look like the ones on the cover. Yum.

Here’s the blurb. Enjoy.  J

Two brothers—one woman—unforgettable passion…


Years before Nikki fell in love with Mitch and Connor, betraying them as only a high school girl could. Now, she’s back and needs their help.

Powerful and commanding, Mitch has never stopped craving Nikki. Connor hungers for her as badly, but isn’t ready to forgive. If she needs some fast cash by working at their gentlemen’s club, she’ll have to audition by stripping for them.

Aroused by their shameless scrutiny, Nikki’s willing to do whatever it takes to be near them again…even being punished in the BDSM room or starring in one of Connor’s erotic films. Mitch won’t have it, unless he and Connor are the ones mounting and enjoying her.

On a sultry weekend, Nikki surrenders to their lust, dominance and exquisite discipline, reawakening their timeless bond and the beginning of forgiveness.

  1. I love the premise of this book! Nothing like lost high school loves, sexy brothers, and a little kink to set you up for some rockin’ good times. If you can find a couple of hot dudes that look like the cover let us know. And share them!


  2. Tina, save me a seat beside you in the lake of fire… I refuse to give up reading or writing erotic-romance—no way!
    True in advertising…Sinfully Wicked is sinfully wicked!

    PS Hi Virginia!

    • Totally agree, Jean. A commenter on Sweet n Sexy Divas summed it up beautifully. If there’s a lot of violence, the books sell a jillion copies and are made into movies. If there’s sex, it’s sneered at. Go figure.

  3. Tina, if you’re doomed, we all are. And if so we’ll have a really good time down there. Like an RT conference that never ends. I’ll see you there 😀 In all seriousness, I agree with you, for those that say we’re damned to hell, so be it. I love what I do and I think it serves a very true real purpose of getting women in touch with their own desires, sexuality and fantasies. If I’m doomed to hell for that, then it is what it is, because I’m not stopping anytime soon.

  4. Wow Tina, this sounds like a delicious scorcher. Hell here I come. lol, is that Jimmy Thomas Tina. I can’t quite tell but those arms…yummmy. Love the storyline. Congrats on another winner.

  5. I’m glad you’re having fun Tina! I enjoy reading erotic romances, so please by all means keep having fun writing them:) Sinfully Wicked sounds like an extremely fun read! I know I’ll be reading it soon!

  6. My mother always told me I’d go blind from reading all my “smut” books. Well, I still have my eyesight and I’m still reading my “smut” books. To me, the smuttier the better.

    Congratulations on your newest release.

  7. Hi Tina..*S Congrats again your newest release, and I just love the coer and the premise.

  9. Hi Tina,
    thank you for the chance at such a great giveaway. i love the cover, it’s gorgeous and the books sounds wonderful. i can hardly wait to start reading. 😀
    Did you design the cover yourself/have alot of say in it? i know some authors have almost no say in what the cover will look like, but your book covers are always so beautiful i just wondered if you design them yourself.

    • Hi, Tammy – Syneca, the wonderful artist at EC came up with the cover. She is sooooo talented. I just love her work. EC asks for a description of the characters from the author, which I gave, but after that it’s up to the cover artists. They always do an outstanding job!

  10. I’d like to thank everyone for leaving such wonderful comments and helping me to celebrate the release of Sinfully Wicked.

    I’ve now chosen my winner – at random – and it’s (drum roll please) Tammy (Wyndwhisper) – yay, Tammy!

    I’ll be contacting you shortly for your prize. 🙂
