Book Tour for Take Me Down by Lauren Hawkeye (Giveaway & Guest Post)

Before we get to Lauren Hawkeye's guest post and giveaway, I want to thank her and Bewitching Book Tours for letting me be a part of this book tour.  This is a steamy read that's the perfect ending to summer and I'm excited to give away an ePub copy of it.  Make sure to read through all the way to the end for the way to enter.  And now, here's Lauren.......

Thanks for having me!

As a writer, I am always looking for books to read and be inspired by. This is the list of my top five erotic books of all time.

Tempted by Megan Hart:

The story of a happily married woman tempted by her husband’s best friend, this story is sexy and emotionally tumultuous at the same time. This is hands-down my favourite erotic book.

Spies, Lies and Naked Thighs by Jina Bacarr:

Breezy Malone is a secret sex agent. Yes, a secret sex agent. How fun is that? This book is a fun, tongue-in-cheek romp, and incredibly sexy at the same time.

Anything You Want by Jenesi Ash:

A novella instead of a full length, Ms. Ash tackles a heroine of questionable morality—my kind of story. Throw in a dash of danger and you have one steamy read.

What Happens In Vegas by Jodie Lynn Copeland, Lauren Dane, Anya Bast and Kit Tunstall:

In this book it was interesting to see the four different styles of the authors playing off of each other. Another fun read, it also included some smoking sex scenes.

Dirty by Megan Hart:

This book is simply a masterpiece. It is really more women’s fiction than erotica, to my way of thinking, even with all the sex. This book goes a long way towards proving that erotica is much, much more than just pornography. This is a beautiful work, and I reread it whenever someone gets me down with one of those “smut” comments.

What erotic books—or even just steamy ones—make your top five list?

That's a great list Lauren with one or two books I've never heard of before but will be adding to my wish list.  I see that Megan Hart made your list twice and I agree with you wholeheartedly about the intensity of her writing.  Great characters along with smokin' sexual interludes.  She's on my list too.

Lauren Hawkeye is a writer, theatre enthusiast, knitting aficionado and animal lover who lives in the shadows of the great Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada.  

She’s older than she looks—really—and younger than she feels—most of the time—and she loves to explore the journeys that take women through life in her stories.!/Lauren_Hawkeye

  2. Right now it's the Sinner's Series by Olivia Cunning. I did start reading some Cynthia Eden but I wasn't crazy in love with it.

  3. My favorites in erotica would depend on my mood at the time and what I am really looking for I am currently enjoying reading Cherise Sinclair's Masters of the Shadowlands books, I also really enjoy Eve Langlais when I am wanting a fun read. But these are just two of the authors that I love. I do have Megan Hart's Tempted, but have not had a chance to read it all yet.
