Now for a bit of a change up. Instead of individual authors, the rest of this week is devoted to Author Groups, and no post about Scorching Hot romance would be complete without the Smutketeers and the Down Under Divas. Between these two groups, they heat up both hemispheres with their steamy works.
To start off our first day of Author Group Bloggers we are opening up with The Smutketeers and the Down Under Divas. We have highlighted three out of the four authors from each group already, so now we get to introducing you to the rest of them. So if you’re ready and willing let’s go have some fun and get…

A BDSM story coming in summer 2012!
Available soon from Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook and Smashwords
When power play becomes more than just a game…
Submission. Spanking. Perhaps even a flogger, a whip…These are the things Skye has always craved, the desires she has never allowed herself to explore. Until now. She thought she was looking for a single experience, something to purge these strange yearnings from her system. Instead she finds a man whose absolute authority and stunning good looks leave her breathless. Helpless. Willing to do anything he asks of her. But only for one night…
Adam has other ideas—BDSM is a process, not a single experience. Skye could be the perfect submissive once he’s done training her—for someone else. For him, that’s always the way it’s been. But Skye is different. Enticing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. Soon all he can think of is breaking Skye—and keeping her for himself.
A BDSM novella from the author of the acclaimed novel THE DARK GARDEN-if you loved 50 Shades, you’ll lose yourself in this tale based on a true story!
**BREAKING SKYE was previously released in 2006-now newly edited and with new content!

When you’ve waited centuries for release…will three be the magic number?
Cursed for hundreds of years by a rejected suitor and an ultimate betrayal, Sarah Blackwood has had plenty of time to plan vengeance…and escape. When she sensed a magic that called out to her own, she instinctively drew it to her, desperately hoping it would be her way out.
She never expected what happened next.
Con and Lorie have always known their Triad was incomplete. They didn’t realize the woman they’d been waiting for had been born over three hundred years too early, or that a twist of magical fate would bring them together at last.
Sarah has sworn vengeance on all the families involved in her imprisonment, including the Abbotts. Will she use her unique abilities to destroy them all, or will the two men she can’t seem to resist convince her–with a little help and a lot of kink–that love is the best revenge?
Warning: Rampant exhibitionism, angry sex followed by make-up sex followed by….I’ll let you guess. A little bondage, some spanking, and the dirtiest magical threesome in the land.

Jesse Kasen has been working for years to turn Kasen’s Kustom Automotive into a force to be reckoned with. The show Revved Up was the first step in making them a national sensation. Classic car owners from all over the world are now flocking to their garage to have them work their magic in customizing those beauties. It took some strong-arming to get his cousin and business partner, Dean, on board, but Jesse is pretty damn proud of what they’ve accomplished.
The only fly in his ointment is Lola Adams, the new executive producer the network has foisted off on them. The little Georgia peach is a blonde bombshell that has “high maintenance” written all over her. From the look of her, she slept her way into this job, and he has no time to babysit someone who doesn’t know one end of a wrench from the other. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and it’s a damn shame that all he can think about when she’s around is what she’d look like all tangled up in his sheets.
Lola might use her sexuality to get what she wants, but if she has to have men falling at her feet and drooling all over her shoes, she might as well get something out of it, right? But don’t let her girlie clothes and slow southern drawl fool you, she’s as savvy as they come, and she convinced the network to get her hands on Revved Up because her uncle used to race in NASCAR and taught her everything there was to know about cars. She has the experience to work with the Kasen cousins, but they assume her sexy exterior covers an empty interior. She should be used to it, but with Jesse, it gets to her in a way it hasn’t in years. Damn him, and damn her attraction for him.
Jesse sees only one solution to their problem–burn off this frustrating attraction in the sack and get on with business. Lola agrees because she has to know what it’s like to touch him, just once, but she wants it discreet. The last thing she needs is for the guys in the garage to leer at her any more than they already do. Jesse suggests meeting at his cabin in the mountains and making good use of a long weekend off. He’s going to pull out all the stops, and bring every naughty toy in his arsenal, to really make the most of the experience.
Only problem is, when all’s said and done, they find out they have a lot more in common than just scorching chemistry, and they actually like each other. Maybe even more than just like. Jesse doesn’t want to give Lola up, but a lifetime of fighting to be taken seriously leaves her leery of agreeing to an open, permanent relationship with someone on a show she produces. Hell, until a few days before, Jesse didn’t take her seriously. He has his work cut out for him if he’s going to convince her what they have is too good to walk away from, because now that he’s had her, he can’t imagine a life without her.
AND INTRODUCING THE NEWEST SMUTKETEER….

Now let’s go Down Under for a little Australian fun …
Down Under Divas
Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.
When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.
Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.

A photographer, a firefighter, a rake. Let the debauchery begin!
When Kennedy bolted after a mind-blowing one-night stand with a sexy Australian firefighter, she never expected to be standing in front of him four months later on a tropical island resort. Naked, thanks to her phobia of butterflies.
Trouble is, she’s equally turned on by Luke and his hunky British cousin. Not exactly how she’d intended to spend her first day as Bandicoot Cove’s official photographer.
Luke never planned on falling for the feisty, flirty American he met at a New York bar. Now that he’s face to face with her again, he has two questions. Why did she run? And why can’t he stop thinking about sharing the woman of his dreams with his cousin?
Addison invited himself along on his cousin’s trip for a weekend of no-strings-attached sex. But he wants to get to know Kennedy on all levels. Seriously, this is no way for a rake to behave. And how the hell is he going to tell his cousin he’s interested in the very woman Luke can’t get out of his mind?
Warnings: The setting sun isn’t the only thing heating up Bandicoot Cove, because when the word “threesome” gets thrown into the mix, it’s seduction on a global scale. (Note: No butterflies were scorched during scenes of burning passion.)
Years of slavery to four young aliens and their sire failed to squash the love of writing or reading hiding behind the facade of a boring stay-at-home mum. Escaping from the mother-ship with vivid imagination intact, Rhian uses her superpowers for good.
Okay, so that’s not quite how it happened. Married to her very own hero for over 20 years and raising a family of four kept writing on the back burner but with more time to spend on the things she loves most, Mr. Muse and Rhian have taken over.
Writing a multiple of genres keeps life interesting and busy. Rhian can be found in numerous places online where her love of talking is well satisfied. An Aussie, who’s spent years living overseas, Rhian and family are now happily residing back in their native land of down under.

One bad date, a hug and a near kiss turn the tides on these three friends forever.
Inseparable since childhood, Brandon, Zeke and Sunnie have developed a bond that has stood the test of time without the complicated addition of sexual attraction. Until now. Sunnie always thought she’d have the perfect normal life by now but every guy she dates turns out to be a bigger dud than the last. It’s a shame her two best friends are off limits. They’d both be perfect for her but she could never pick between them and wouldn’t risk losing either one by choosing.
Rand isn’t sure what it is that’s different but the second Sunnie comes storming in after another bad date he notices a change. Offering comfort is all he wants to do but doing so unleashes a desire he’s kept hidden for years. One he’s no longer able to control. One that proves more intense with each encounter. Taking the biggest gamble of his life he makes an offer he hopes neither of his friends can refuse.
Z knows the pact he and Rand made all those years ago is off. He also knows the rules of the game are different to any other he’s played. But being with Sunnie is worth it and being with her without Rand is unthinkable so when his best mate suggests the three of them would work well in the bedroom he isn’t about to let the subject drop.
Together, Zeke and Rand set out to seduce Sunnie into believing in what they have to offer. The only thing in their way is Sunnie’s unusual upbringing and her desire for a traditional life.
Jess Dee lives in beautiful Sydney, Australia, with her husband, their two sons and their insane dog - a ridiculously overweight puggle named Luigi.
An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. It might have taken a while, but in December of 2005, she finally got “the call.” Her first book, Photo Opportunity had been contracted. Now you can’t hold her down. She’s completed a whole host of books, and is finally doing the work she loves most— writing romance.
Jess likes to set her stories in Australia. Have a look at the gorgeous images on the page, and you’ll understand why it’s so easy to find romance in this beautiful country.

He kissed the girl and he liked it. Now to convince her it could be love…
A Two to Tango story
When a coveted retail space opens up in Rose Bay, Claire Jones and her sisters waste no time grabbing the perfect spot to relocate their expanding children’s bookshop. But when Claire arrives to sign on the dotted line, she discovers someone else got there first.
Worse, the new tenant is shaking hands with a man who is definitely not the elderly Jack Wilson with whom she made a verbal agreement three days ago. This Jack Wilson is a tall, hunky giant—and no amount of righteous indignation can mask her body’s bone-deep sexual response.
Jack never planned to take over the family company; he’s a teacher, not a businessman. But with his grandfather in the hospital, he’s taken up the reins—and steered straight into trouble. Now he’s faced with a serious mistake, and a beautiful, Amazon warrior of a woman who’s demanding satisfaction.
He’d love to give it to her, but his idea of satisfaction has nothing to do with business, and everything to do with getting the curvy goddess naked. The sooner the better…
If you’ve never made love to a man who quotes Shakespeare during sex…be warned. You’re gonna want to after reading this book.
AND THIS IS THE FOURTH DIVAS, SWEET AS CAN BE, LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO…
I penned a lot of dark, tragic stories interspersed with comedic adventures that starred my high school friends and various made up (aka: too-good-to-be-true) boys. All this before I even knew what a romance novel was. I was sixteen when I picked up my first Harlequin Temptation (A Gift of Wildflowers by Georgia Bockoven), and it literally changed my life. I found a world where things always ended on a positive note and the awkward girl with the frizzy hair could get the hot guy. This was the kind of world an awkward girl with frizzy hair such as I wanted to inhabit.
So I wrote a romance novel. It sucked. I wrote some more and they still sucked, then I gave up for an extended period of time. I worked as a bartender, where I used to write story ideas and snatches of dialogue on the back of flyers for $2 drink specials, before tossing them in the bin at the end of the night’s work. I tried again some years later, writing the story that would later be revised and become my first published novel. But at the time I was convinced nobody was going to buy it so I got a business degree and worked at a few ‘real’ jobs that sucked even worse than being an aspiring, oft-rejected writer slash bartender. My Princess was a baby when I got the news from Samhain Publishing that they wanted to buy Born Again Virgin. I was heavily pregnant with the Cherub when I wrote Chasing Sunset, and I had them both underfoot when I wrote Sunset Knight.
Now I work part-time, mother full-time and write whenever I can. Princess and Cherub are still underfoot a lot of the time but they make me laugh so I let them get away with it. I love to hear from readers, especially when they say nice stuff about my books. I have an email address, a twitter handle, a facebook page, a blog, and a group blog at the Down Under Divas. It’d be pretty hard not to run into me, really. So next time you do, say hi.

A new lover, an old flame, sultry moonlit nights. Why let inhibitions stand in the way?
Bandicoot Cove: The Wedding, Book 3
Two years ago, Hayley Bryant left Australia on a round-the-world odyssey that changed her life, and her attitude. After that, coming face to face with the man whose rejection sent her packing shouldn’t affect her at all, right?
Except there’s one thing that hasn’t changed—her former boss Mitchell Wood makes her burn as hot as ever. The difference is, Hayley’s now a grown woman who knows how to get what she wants, and she wants Mitch. Trouble is, she hasn’t come to her friend’s wedding alone. Her very sexy friend with benefits, Ty Butler, might pose a problem.
Business was always Mitch’s first love…at least until he hired his little sister’s friend as an intern. Pushing her away was the right thing to do, but now his sister’s wedding has Hayley re-entering his life—and the empty place in his heart. Soon he’s acting less like the consummate workaholic and more like a man crazy in love. But Hayley’s “plus one” is an unexpected obstacle.
Fortunately, Mitch has never been one to shy away from a little competition…
Bilby Island’s sensual spell strikes again. Book contains hot lovin’ made in beautiful tropical surrounds, some exhibitionism, voyeurism and bondage. Best read with a margarita in hand and the fan switched to high.
