A Siren Erotic Romance
5 CHERRIES: "What if you found your true love but your mom was married to his dad? What would you do for love? Ms. Morgan has created a touching romance of a stepbrother and stepsister who are in love with each other and fighting it. Sean is a wonderful hero. He’s terribly conflicted. He loves his stepsister and wants to do the right thing. But what is right? When he thinks with his brain and does what he thinks is right he just can’t stop being angry. Isabelle, although young, knows what she wants. She has the strength to go after what she wants. When things don’t work out she tries to rebuild. When she’s finally happy, violence rips that away. After the rape, Isabelle demonstrates real complex emotions. What I loved most about this book was how real both Sean and Isabelle are. They both had a complexity and honesty to them. I immediately bonded with both of them. I found this story simply beautiful. Like star-crossed lovers, Sean and Isabelle must overcome both internal and external forces. When they finally find happiness a terrible act of violence shatters both of them. I felt my heart melt reading their story. Sometimes I cried and sometimes I smiled. The sex scenes were beautiful and hot. There is no cruel rape scene in this book. You see the villain at the beginning and then Isabelle after. Rape is truly portrayed as violence. It’s a traumatic event that changes both Isabelle and Sean. I thought I wasn’t going to like this book when it mentioned the heroine is raped, but instead I absolutely fell in love with this story. The rape is portrayed as a terrible event like a death of a loved one that you can’t change, you must simply find some way to move forward from there. In addition, the supporting characters provide some of the more touching moments. When Isabelle’s mother confronted Sean about his relationship it wasn’t what I expected. Instead it turned out to be a poignant moment. Isabelle’s interactions with her mother and Sean’s father also were more than expected. When thinking of this book, I will remember these scenes just as much as I remember Sean and Isabelle. I wasn’t expecting this book to touch my heart, but it did. If you’re looking for a breathtaking romance that will stay with you, I highly recommend Love Knows No Boundaries." -- Violet, Whipped Cream Reviews
4.75 STARS: "When I started reading Love Knows No Boundaries, I instantly realized that I was reading much more than a romance or love story. I knew that I was reading something much deeper. The emotional quality of this book is undeniable, and I was pulled into the upheaval of emotions along with the characters. What starts out as a seemingly lovelorn attraction is quickly shown to be quite more, and the ensuing conflict will captivate the reader. The characters are solidly written, and Ms. Morgan's ability to write them with such vigor is very appealing. Sean is very memorable, and the glimpse of both his strong side as well as his underlying pain is just the type of writing I enjoy the most. Isabelle is a part of all women. She is strong and knows what she wants but she isn't indestructible. Her fierce love along with her pain and suffering is something we can all relate to. This was not just romantic "fluff;" this was gritty along with the romance. It works very well together. I am very happy I chose this book to read. Ms. Morgan has a fan in me, and I will be on the hunt for more titles by this talented author." -- Tegan S. Boyd, Book Wenches
“Ssh,” he told her. “Come here.”
She followed him over to the full-length mirror that hung on his closet door. He turned her around to face the mirror and placed her hands on the door. She looked at him in the mirror, confusion etching her face.
One side of his mouth lifted up.
“Keep your hands where they are. Step out of your panties, honey. Here.” He reached down to help her. “Now, back your legs way out toward me. And slowly drop to your knees. Good. Now, lean your arms into the door. That’s it. That’s nice, baby.” He placed his hands at her hips as he guided her legs further apart. “Now spread your legs, honey. No, more. Real wide. Yes, that’s perfect.”
He looked at her reflection. On her knees, outstretched in front of the mirror. He ran his hands down her back and rubbed them all around her perfectly rounded bottom. He pulled his hands away to undress himself. He was making quick work of all of the buttons and the zipper that his outfit entailed. As he stepped out of the last leg of his pants, he smiled at her.
“What do you want me to do to you, baby?”
His voice made that sound again. How did his voice turn her into a puddle of desire? Knowing that there could be no more hesitation, no more embarrassment, she answered his question.
“I want you to kiss me there and—taste me.”
“All you had to do was ask, baby.” He dropped to his knees once again, only this time he turned his body and scooted underneath her on his back. At first he just stared up at her. Then she heard him mutter something under his breath and his mouth crushed against her. It was hard and fast. It was intoxicating. His head was lifted up and he was licking parts of her that had never been touched by another human being. He kept saying something, but she couldn’t understand. And honestly, she didn’t really care. What he was doing felt so good.
Sean was losing himself in her taste, fast. He had never consumed anything so sweet and succulent in all of his life. Her scent was enough to send him to the edge anyway, but her juices on his tongue would make sure he fell completely off the edge—completely and forever.
“Look in the mirror.” Sean’s words vibrated against her sensitive flesh.
She understood him that time. She looked up and saw his tongue dart out of his mouth and into her wetness. The sight of him licking her and taking her with his mouth was making her crazy.
“Sean. I can feel—oh Sean. Something is happening to me.”
She was close. He could sense it from her muscles contracting around his tongue every time he entered her, but her words were his proof. She was moaning and whimpering with every thrust of his tongue. He had never wanted a woman’s release more than he did hers right now. He increased his pressure as he grabbed onto her bottom.
Isabelle jolted from the sensation of his rough hands. He was pressing hard. Pressing her body further into his mouth. Her legs were so weak. She could feel her thigh muscles start to shake. What did that mean? But oh, it felt so good. She heard a ragged cry and was surprised that it came from her own throat. It sounded so primal. She was about to beg him to take her now, to not make her wait any longer. But then he did something different, something that stunned her.
Her reactions were guiding his movements. He knew she was close, but he wanted her to experience all of the sensations of oral sex before he let her climax. When he knew that he had licked and tasted every part of her, he went for the sensitive nub that was swollen and engorged with her arousal. First he flicked it with is tongue. He had to fight back a laugh at her response. She probably hadn’t realized it but she had screamed a naughty word. Then he pulled the nub into his mouth and began sucking on it.
What was he doing? Oh, yes. Is this normal?
“Sean I—maybe you should stop. I don’t know if I should be feeling—oh, oh, oh Sean.” She felt a heat wave rip through her at the same time that a million butterflies danced around in her tummy. She suddenly felt euphoric as a warm rush of liquid heat spilled from within her. Sean. Sean was moaning and talking to her. What he was saying she had no idea. She was floating somewhere, hovering outside of her body.
Finally the sensation tapered off until she was left with a warm feeling of peace. And sleepy, she felt so sleepy. Her body became lax. She vaguely felt it when Sean had picked her up and carried her to the bed. She opened her eyes and smiled up at him. Raising her hand to his face she whispered to him.
“That was amazing.”
He watched her. She was completely satisfied. When she had finally climaxed and he had tasted all the sweet nectar that had poured out of her, he thought he was going to fall right along with her. But he held back and concentrated on drinking up every last drop of her. She was sleepy now. No matter how badly he wanted to bury himself in her, she needed a nap. This night would be exhausting for her if he didn’t let her rest because there was no way that once was going to be enough with her.
He leaned over her and placed a gentle kiss to her forehead. Before he had a chance to pull away she grabbed onto him in demand of a real kiss. So he did. He kissed her long and hard, with all of the unspent desire that was still making him ache for her.
She drew away from his kiss, stunned. Her eyes were wide.
“Is that me?”
He smiled. She could taste her passion, and if he was a betting man, she liked it.
“It’s amazing, isn’t it? You’re so sweet, honey.” He kissed her once more.
She moaned as the kiss deepened. He could feel her arousal returning. He thought she would be too tired, too lax from her orgasm to do anything but rest. But now she was urging him, enticing him.
“Izzy, don’t you need to rest?”
She shook her head.
“I need you, Sean. I need you to fill me, I feel so empty. I want to feel whole with you.”
