New release: The Revenge Game

https://entangledpublishing.com/the-revenge-game.html


Adam Morrow is a self-made millionaire. But one night with her could ruin everything…

I’ve worked my ass off for what I have, and I’m damn proud of it. I started off with nothing and now I’m filthy rich. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like revenge to help you get your ass in gear. And that’s what I’m taking, with every exclusive resort I open—sweet, sweet revenge…on her.

Nicole Westmore was my first love. The poor little rich girl stole my heart with her sweet smile, hot body, and irresistible innocence. The summer I worked for her father was the best time of my life…until he drove me away. Even then, I thought Nicole would wait for me. She didn’t.

And so, I decided to get even, opening rival hotels, slowly driving them out of business. The old man is gone now, but Nicole is still running the company that’s about to collapse. All my hard work will soon pay off.

And then I catch sight of her at a wedding, and all those feelings come rushing back--for both of us. Still, she doesn’t know what I’ve done—yet—and she seems more than willing. What will one night in her bed hurt?

The sex is hotter than ever, and I can’t help wondering if I’ve made a mistake. Until I get up the next morning…and realize I’ve been kidnapped.

The second story in the SexScape series is out now

https://www.changelingpress.com/sir-spanksalot-sexscape-2-b-2913

Maddy’s “career” is in personal injury law, representing plaintiffs in silly lawsuits. To escape, she plays SexScape on her tablet computer. One night, after winning a particularly difficult level, she finds herself whooshed into the game itself and confronted by an indecently attractive man who claims his name is Sir Spanksalot. Spanking is not her thing, but blazing hot sex with Spanksalot is.
Spanksalot is sure The League has chosen this difficult but seductive woman to be his mate. Only two problems -- she seems to be in love with a man named Samuel. And she has a hang-up about his specialty, spanking. Turns out Samuel is Maddy’s fantasy lover and no threat to Spanksalot. When Maddy discovers the fun of having her bottom gently paddled, the two of them become a match made in SexScape.
"This was a quick read, and totally different than anything I have read before. I thought it would have just been a spanking book, but it is and it isn't. It's really a great book that stretches one's imagination in the gaming world."
-- 4 Stars from Mozzy, Amazon Review
 This series is so much fun.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

New series from Changeling Press

I have a new series of stories from Changeling Press called SexScape.  The first is available now.

Trickster

One night, after a particularly frustrating loss at her favorite game, SexScape, Grace finds herself whooshed away into a cottage belonging to one of SexScape’s most infuriating characters — King Trickster. Only in the flesh, the king isn’t a squat little guy zipping around the game board on a toy motorcycle. He’s full-sized and eager to show her all the delights SexScape has to offer. He even drives a great big hog of a bike. Now she has to figure out how to get past League rules so she can stick around.
Trickster can feel in his bones that Grace is meant to be his partner, but first he has to convince her that everything here — including the delicious sex — is real. Then, she’ll have to prove herself worthy of entry into The League. Will they live sexily ever after?
You can read a short excerpt here:

Captain and Countess on sale for 99 cents until the end of June

https://www.amazon.com/Captain-Countess-Alice-Gaines-ebook/dp/B00RUP60TI/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1528391959&sr=1-4&keywords=alice+gaines


On sale for 99 cents until the end of June
4.5 out of 5 stars

Captain Jason Northcross desperately desires his sister, Lily, to marry into noble society. To achieve a duchy for his sister, he needs a proper marriage for himself. His status guarantees an easily achieved betrothal, and he should have no trouble selecting one of the eligible young ladies during his party in the countryside. However, distracted from his goal, he has a hard time keeping his hands off his neighbor, Lady Rushford.

The late Earl of Rushford's widow, Bess Webster, believes romance has passed her by. So why can’t she keep Captain Northcross out of her dreams? And how does he inflame passions she didn’t know she had? While she should be focused on penning novels and finding husbands for her friends, her thoughts center on broad shoulders and laughing green eyes.

"Jane Austen haunts the pages of this regency romance, and she does so with a vigorous nod of approval. I'm difficult to please when it comes to historical fiction because it's so tough to capture use of language and tone without sounding contrived, but Ms. Gaines's prose is an effortless read, beautifully paced, and brimming with evocative detail of period and place. The novel departs from conventional offerings in this genre with characters that are fresh, multi-faceted, and richly layered."  Amazon reviewer

A few pictures from my trip to the Galapagos

I was supremely fortunate to be able to take a National Geographic cruise around the Galapagos Islands (off the west coast of Ecuador).  As you no doubt know, the animals Darwin found on these islands were instrumental in his formulation of the theory of evolution through natural selection.

This was my lovely cabin on the National Geographic Islander run by Lindblad Expeditions.  So cozy.  I miss it and the amazing food.  Only trouble is I fell in love with Ecuadorian beer and cant find it in the US.


As we approached a small hill, we heard a strange call, and our naturalist became excited.  "I have a treat for you," she said.

Twenty-two flamingoes marched by on their way to a lagoon for their breakfast.  My brother-in-law got his camera out quickly and took this picture.






Here's the lovely countryside on Santa Cruz Island.




















And one of the highlights of my trip...a chance to sit down with a Galapagos tortoise.  The fields near the restaurant where we had lunch on Santa Cruz were full of these amazing creatures.  I sat down with this one, and we looked at each other for about twenty minutes until it started to rain.


What a gorgeous animal.  I miss him!

Now out from Entangled Scorched

Sex columnist Désirée “Rae” Knight is in a bind—and not the kind she usually likes. Her newest assignment, and possible big break, is an article for her magazine on the sex resort that just opened. The only problem is it’s couples only. Although she writes about having red-hot sex, she’s been single longer than she’d like to admit. Enter her coffee shop crush, who she’s been secretly ogling every morning. Trouble is, he doesn’t know she exists.

When Nate Winslow recognizes the shy, quiet woman at Sufficient Grounds as the author of the sex columns that fuel his fantasies, he’s surprised. And the last thing he expects is an invitation to join her at a sex resort. But his answer is hell yes!

Rae and Nate have enough chemistry in the bedroom to set the sheets ablaze. When Rae insists they limit their relationship to sex only, Nate agrees since he’s burned out on love. But the more they push each other’s boundaries, the more they realize one week won’t be enough.

“Intense, romantic and erotic!” –Charly M., NetGalley

“This is a sizzling hot intense and erotic romance.” –Shannon’s Bookish Life

“While this was an erotic romance and had plenty of sexy times, Ms Gaines managed to make it not all about sex by creating well-rounded backstories for Rae and Nate. They became more than just people having a good time for a week with no strings attached sex at a sex resort.
They were people with feelings, fears, hopes and dreams. The sex made for a spicy read but their personalities brought depth and meaning to the story.” –Deanna L., NetGalley

“Hot, hot, hot!” –Erika C., NetGalley

“There’s so much more to this sizzling romance than just the sexy times, and I loved it!”
–Monica B., NetGalley

Captain and Countess was one of the first ten books selected for the Kindle Scout program.  Some of the reviewers have said the following:

Jane Austen haunts the pages of this regency romance, and she does so with a vigorous nod of approval…It makes perfect sense that Alice Gaines is an award-winning novelist--she writes well and shows an astute, timeless understanding of human nature.

The book delivers in spades. Excellent writing and editing. Lively dialogue. Good pacing. And OMG, blow your socks off sensuous love scenes!

Thanks to my readers who've made the book so successful.
