The Romance Reviews Erotic Romance Madness Hop May 10th-14th

I love cougar stories, so when I heard a group of my fellow EC writer’s had band together to write a series I knew I wanted to be part of it. I’ve been a cougar in real life. I once dated a guy 10 years my junior. I like men younger than me. For whatever reason anytime I dated a man older than me it never worked out, including my first 10yr marriage. My husband now is 2 years younger than me and we get along great.
While every book in the Cougar Challenge Series is awesome in its own right I’ve chosen to tell you about Winters’ Thaw. Winters’ Thaw mixes in another love of mine – rock stars. Okay, so the hero isn’t a “huge” rock star, but he’s in a band. There’s nothing sexier to me than a guy in a band.
Each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone, but believe me, you’ll want to read them all. :o)

I’m giving away a copy of my cougar book Gettin’ Lucky to TWO lucky commenters. The contest will start on May 10, 12:00am EST and will end on May 14, 1159pm EST.  The winners will be announced on May 15th. Please include an email address so I can contact you. It’s so disappointing when I host a contest and contact the winner. 


OR nurse Elizabeth Winters is forty-one, divorced and determined to figure out what all the fuss is about sex. Her ex spent over twenty years crushing her sensuality and it is long past time for release. Literally, dammit! In her quest, she befriends a group of women her age who admit having a passion for younger men—and thus begins a challenge…
Thirty-year-old engineer Kevin Springer loves solving puzzles and “Elle” has him aching to fit the pieces. The more he gets to know her, the more intrigued he becomes, especially in bed. He quickly realizes he wants more than her offered no-strings-attached, wild sex, but convincing her to take a chance on a relationship isn’t going to be easy.

Marcy Brown can’t get enough of Lucky, her massage therapist. Lucky’s fingers always linger dangerously close to…sensitive areas, and ignite a fire she can’t ignore. Marcy isn’t looking for a relationship, but a friend with benefits would be right up her alley. The women of her fave blog, Tempt the Cougar, swear by younger men, but Marcy doesn’t want to train someone. She wants a man who can give her orgasm after orgasm.
Lucky offers to be her secret lover and help her realize all her fantasies. With Lucky, Marcy discovers the thrill of sexual positions and taboos she’s been missing out on—up to and including sex with two gorgeous men at once.
All bets are off when this Cougar is challenged to get her growl on.

The Romance Reviews Erotic Romance Madness Hop;


  1. Oooh, Amber! I want a little bit of young luck! Seriously, just another author on the hop, checking it all out! Good luck.

  3. The older I get, the more and more I love cougar stories. I wonder why? LOL... Getting Lucky is one of my favorite books from you. I'm jealous of people getting to read it for the first time. It is hot!!! I swoon for rock stars or even someone in a band. There is just something so sexy about someone singing on stage, or someone playing just for you. Wow!

  4. These books sound awesome, Amber. Thanks for the giveaway.


  5. I can definitely see the appeal of younger men...though Channing Tatum is only six months younger than me!!

    Cool Blog Hop!

  6. I like younger men, not to young, just young enough that I don't have to worry about little blue pills for awhile.


  7. These look great!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. Well I have been married to my husband for 34 years and we have been together since I was 12 and he was 14. He is two years older then me. So no younger guys for me, but I love reading stories about it. The book sounds like a great read.


  9. I'll admit to having a preference for younger guys. I didn't date at all in high school & always seemed to crush on the guys who were the same age or older, but when I snagged my first boyfriend, he was 3 yrs younger & had just turned 18. We had 6 good years together before we started trying to plan a wedding & figured out that we had been ignoring some pretty big issues, so we ended up calling it off. It was fun while it lasted though.

    Both Winter's Thaw & Gettin' Lucky, sound great. Will definately be adding this series to my wish list.

  17. I have recently gotten to the age where being a cougar might be a fun thought. Not too much of a difference but up to 10 years might be ok (that would put him in the mid to late 20's area). Getting lucky sounds great, cougar and menage with tow hot younger guys...YUM!
