**Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Six Naughty Nights ~ Serenity Woods**

Hi y'all! I'm a stop on the blog tour for Six Naughty Nights by Serenity Woods. My stop includes a guest post from Serenity, my review and a giveaway! This blog tour is presented by Author's Angels.

************************GUEST POST
Hi, I’m Serenity and I’m here to tell you about Six Naughty Nights, my latest racy romance from Samhain Publishing.

This is the second in my Love in Reverse series, written with the aim of bringing a bit of fun into the world of erotic romance :-) It’s the follow up to Seven Sexy Sins (you don’t have to have read SSS to enjoy the second book, but if you’d like to catch up first, you can find out more about it, including all its lovely reviews, on my website.)

In SSS, the heroine wrote a magazine column on the seven deadly sins relating each one to a “sexy sin” to give bored housewives ways to spice up their tired love lives. Six Naughty Nights has a similar aim in making sex fun. It’s the name of a role-playing game that the hero, Toby, and the heroine, Esther, play together, based on an actual game hubby and I used to own in our younger days. *Blushes*. The two decks of cards (one for men and one for women) contain various suggestions for sexy ideas or role-playing scenarios to spice up a couple’s sex life. For example, Toby picks a card which instructs him to perform oral sex on his partner in a public place (he ends up picking the cinema during a Bourne movie), while one of Esther’s cards tells her to try a position she’s never tried before (and let’s just say it’s the sexiest number you can think of :-))

But please don’t think Six Naughty Nights is erotica—it’s very much a love story set in the beautiful, sultry Northland of New Zealand where I live. A large section of the story deals with the fact that in the first chapter (actually during an earthquake, but that’s another story) Toby rescues a woman only to find it’s the girl he had a hot holiday fling with several years before—a woman he’d been dreaming about since the day he walked away from her at the airport. But seeing her again turns out to be the second most shocking thing of his day (well the third if you include the earthquake)—after discovering that Esther has a son who turns out to be his.

If you love sexy boy-next-door heroes, spirited heroines, hot sex and a happy ever after that’ll make you’ll cry, I like to think Six Naughty Nights is your sort of book. The Love in Reverse stories are fun and racy, heart-warming and emotional, and if you don’t fall in love with each hero by the end, I’ll be very surprised :-)

Six nights to remember, six days to forgive…

Esther is grateful for the strong arms that saved her and her young son from an earthquake. But she wishes their rescuer was someone else. Anyone other than the man who left her pregnant after a holiday fling.

Toby’s carpentry skills take him wherever there’s work, and right now that work is definitely cut out for him. He has to get over the shock that the little boy in his arms is his own son—and convince Esther that he’s always regretted walking away from her. 

Esther can’t bring herself to deny Toby his right to get to know Charlie. Besides, with her own home flattened, she has nowhere to go but with him to his apartment…where she discovers a sexy role-playing card game tucked in his suitcase.

When Toby invites her to accompany him to the Northland to attend his best friend’s wedding, the opportunity to explore their still-simmering attraction is too tempting to resist. As the steamy scenarios heat up, they start to realize this is more than a game. But Esther’s hiding a secret that could cause as much devastation as the earthquake...

Product Warnings
Contains role-playing fun including Roman slave and master, sexy schoolgirl spanking, and interrogation of a spy. Silk scarves included.

My Review
Six Naughty Nights is such a sweet and sexy read! I enjoyed all the characters as well as the setting - New Zealand. This is, at its core, a story of a second chance at romance. And I love it when characters get their second chance at love! :)

Esther and Toby first met in Fiji where they spent two glorious sex-filled weeks together while on holiday. Despite each having developed feelings for the other, once it was time to go home, Toby declines to continue the romance. When Esther realized she was pregnant, she went it alone rather than face the pain of rejection again.

They meet again in a supermarket during an earthquake where Toby saves both Esther and Charlie - his son. Since Esther lost her apartment in the quake, Toby invites her and Charlie to come home with him. While there, Esther and Charlie meet family and friends. Toby and Esther embark on another holiday of hot sex using a game called Naughty Nights. They both try to convince themselves there are no emotions involved. But it doesn't take long to realize they're lying to themselves and each other. However, they both must also figure out a way to forgive each other for mistakes they've made if they're going to have their happily-ever-after.

Six Naughty Nights was hot and a lot of fun. I do wish Esther and Toby had spent a bit more time together talking rather than playing their sex games. It would have saved them a bit of heartache. But the sexy scenes were sexy and extremely pleasurable -- for Esther and Toby! :) I was very pleased this couple got their second chance. They were very much in love. And Esther, so isolated in her life before, found friendship and acceptance in Toby's family and friends. I was delighted in the friends...Rusty and Faith and Dan and Eve. They were a great group of friends and well developed characters. And little Charlie -- I adored reading about his love of Thomas the Tank Engine, his smelling of baby shampee and powder, and his sucking his thumb. I could reminisce about my own little boy. :)

Six Naughty Nights is the second in the series. But I didn't feel like I'd missed anything not having read the first. However, I really liked it and will definitely continue the series.
