this sinfully sexy STANDALONE novel in the NYT Bestselling Sinful Nights
He gave her the most mind-blowing night
of pleasure ever. He made her want to get down on her knees. He dominated her
in ways she’d only dreamed of. And she didn’t even know his name…
It’s what Ryan Sloan values most. Control of his business, control of
his secrets, control of his days and nights. With the way his life spiraled in
the past, he needs to stay in charge of his present.
Giving up control.
It’s what Sophie Winston craves. After a wildly successful career, she’s
stepped away from the business world and is now focused on her work as her
city’s most noted philanthropist.
When she meets Ryan Sloan, the chemistry is scorching, and utterly
undeniable. Their desire for each other runs red hot. He wants everything she’s
willing to give him in bed, and she wants him to take her to new heights as
only he can.
Soon, he has to have more. All of her —
heart, mind and body.
The only trouble is, he hasn’t been honest about how he met her and the
dangerous connection he has to her brother.
When the truth is revealed, he’ll have to give more of himself than he’s
bargained for or risk losing the only woman he’s ever let into his heart.

SINFUL DESIRE is book two in SINFUL NIGHTS, a four-book series. Each
full-length novel features a new couple. This high-heat, high-stakes sexy
romance series follows the Sloan family as each sibling falls madly in love
against the backdrop of sin, money, greed, passion, mystery and suspense…

I never knew what the consequences would be.
I say that like itís a defense, an excuse.
Itís not. Itís simply the truth.
I never knew what he would become to me.
Through everything, heís become everything.
My rock, my air, my love.
My everything.
And thenÖ.
Things changed.
Because it was wrong.

Judge me if you like.

The Venturess by Dean E. S. Richard

I have shared about The Venturess here before, but I figured maybe you all would like to learn a little more about it, plus hear from Dean himself.  If you haven’t heard of The Venturess, now is your chance.  Learn more about The Venturess, see awesome artwork created for the Venturess and learn how you can support it.

About The Venturess

The Venturess is a ship. This is the story of her and her crew. Only, you pick what happens in it. Every other Friday, a new short story will be posted. You, the reader will then have a week to vote on what happens next. The Venturess is a delivery ship- sometimes for legitimate concerns, more often not. This takes the ship and crew to the far reaches of the universe, and into contact with a myriad of species and characters. Grab your spacesuit, your weapon of choice, and settle in for the ride. Welcome aboard.


The Crew

Laurie Mack is the owner and captain of the ship. Serious, though not as serious as she often appears. She is brave and calculated, a businesswoman, yet a misfit in her own right- hence owning a ship and venturing on her own.

Chip is her pilot. Young and brash, he is a brilliant pilot. Happy-go-lucky and cheerful no matter the situation, and loyal to a fault. Oh, and he’s dead, so you could have skipped this.

Scorch is an automaton, brought on for loading and moving cargo, there is a quiet wisdom to him. While intended to simply fill labor roles, he has become a valuable member of the crew.


The Bartender is a Fuesillien revolutionary, with ties to the criminal underworld. He joined the crew upon Chip’s death, needing to escape authorities. It is yet unclear if he is loyal to the crew, or just serving his own ends.


Looks Exciting Right?  So this is the week a new post is up! You can find it over at

About the Author


The D is for Dean. Dean is the author of the 3024AD series of science fiction stories. He also write Adventures in Indie Publishing for Nerds Feather, focusing on the latest in indie press. As that might indicate, he is a nerd (or geek?). He is also an aficionado of good drinks (extra dry martini; onions, not olives), good food and fine dress. When not holed up in his office tweeting obnoxiously writing, he can be found watching or playing sports, or in his natural habitat of a bookstore. He also has an unhealthy obsession with old movies and goes through phases where he plays video games before kind of forgetting they exist. He lives in the Pacific Northwest and likes the rain, thank you very much.

Dean also answered a few questions about The Venturess :

1. Last we talked you mentioned where you wanted to see the Venturess going. Have you hit your goals with that?

Somewhat- it is growing in readership, which is the biggest thing. Readers and engaged with the story and characters, which is my biggest goal.

2. What is your goal going forward for the Venturess?

Keep telling stories that interest people. It’s a fun medium, since I can tell a variety of stories within the universe, but without setting up new characters. The present storyline is more horror-ish, some are light-hearted, etc. As long as people read it, I’ll write it.
3. How many chapters or stories do you for see for the Venturess?

See above- it’s meant to be open-ended. If people stop reading it, I’ll re-evaluate if I want to keep going, but I don’t see it ending as long as people are reading and voting.

4. The crew seems to be dwindling , should the readers be worried for them?

Yup! I mean, that’s real life, right? People die and bad things happen. One of the rules of this is that no one is safe. There are choices that will lead to people dying, and that’s what it is. There will be opportunities to add to the crew, as well.

5. Tell readers and supporters about the patreon and what they can do to support the Venturess?

The Patreon is there sort of as a tip jar. I want the Venturess to be free, and fun. So, if people want to chip in, it is much appreciated. There are some rewards for pledging- There is some artwork coming, and stickers, that sort of thing. The biggest support is reading it, voting, and sharing it.
