The Friday Fifty-Six(56) is a weekly MeMe hosted by Freda's Voice.
Here are the rules:

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now
  • Turn to page 56
  • Find  the fifth(5th) sentence.
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two more if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you don't have a blog) in the comments section of this blog.
  • Post a link to your post here and back to Freda's Voice, so that others may follow.  
Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. USE THE CLOSEST.

My Friday 56 is from
A Madam Into A Mistress 
by Nadia Aiden  


She stiffened .  "Of course.  And you get so much more out of me serving 
time with you, warming your bed and 
cleaning your home, than you would if they hauled me off to prison."










From the publisher:

Book two in the Heroes and Harlots Series

A deputy bent on revenge will have the pleasure of turning a haughty madam into his mistress where she is now his to use the way she used him.

Deputy Marshal Shane Duckett has come to the town of Redemption with only two things on his mind—revenge and Madam Cherie Launbauer. Eight years ago, Shane was na├»ve and in love, and because of this he was easily deceived.

Cherie used Shane’s innocence against him, and easily seduced him. She ended up escaping from jail on his watch, while he ended up spending two years in a federal prison for trusting and loving the wrong woman. But now he is older, wiser, and full of bitterness and has found his way to Redemption and on Cherie’s doorstep where he intends to drag her back to prison and make her serve out her sentence.

But Shane soon learns Cherie has made mighty powerful friends on the right side of the law, and they’re not too keen on seeing her locked up in prison. They offer Shane another alternative. For every day spent in prison because of her, Cherie will spend a night in Shane’s bed as his exclusive mistress. Not the revenge he’d envisioned, but certainly a just sentence.

Cherie will be his mistress, there to serve his needs, to see to his pleasure, and only his pleasure. Shane will have the pleasure of turning this haughty madam into his mistress where she is now his to use the way she once used him.
 



So what's your Friday 56?

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY - ILLICIT INTUITIONS




"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at 
Breaking theSpine which highlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.



This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

by Nikki Duncan 
Publication Date: April 10, 2012 

Love could be their greatest liability.

Sensory Ops, Book 3

Ava Malia knows three things. She was once a kickass covert operative. She will eventually adjust to her new team, the FBI Specialized Crimes Unit. And the only way to finally be free of her professional past is to solve her first case and get her hands on a game-changing technology. The only problem? Success rides on her ability to swallow her distaste for the persona she must adopt in order to earn the trust of a mysterious scientist.

Dr. H escaped childhood captivity with three things. His sister. Complete control of his gift. And an engulfing distrust of anyone in the government. Adjusting to a life of freedom hasn’t been easy, but he’s found peace in solitude. The sexy woman auditing his empathic studies, though, has a way of getting under his skin that’s both arousing and disturbing. Plus, his psychic ability warns him of secrets so deeply buried in her psyche, they’d be better left alone.

Yet their instant attraction strips away all their protective barriers, down to the foundation of a new, fragile trust. And a vulnerability that, when an old enemy opens fire, could blast away any chance of a future.

Product Warnings: If you don’t like mysterious heroes who can see into strong heroines, sexy love scenes, empaths, or quirky characters… Oh come on, who doesn’t like those things?


What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Her wide mouth fell open, and her gaze landed on his chest. He realized too late he was clad only in trousers. Well, let her get a little excitement. Poor woman probably didn’t get much
