The Beautiful Move in Curves available from Xcite
Ultimate Curves Anthology

Olivia Taylor is a gorgeous and large woman who is angry over an article about "butterbodies" - women with
beautiful faces "butterbody" leaves something to be desired. This is the flip side of "butterface". The idiot who
wrote the article called Salma Hayek a "butterbody." If some moron can diss Salma Hayek, what does that say
about Olivia? She cannot be in a bad mood before attending the SF/F convention, especially since she's going
to meet Jeremy, a gorgeous hunk of a man several years her junior. There is more than enough woman in Liv to
please several men, and she has the spunk and sex appeal to prove it.

The Haunting of the Sandpiper Inn available from Whiskey Press Torrid

While psychic Martha Ellis McKay may have the Gift, a skeptic’s heart beats in her breast. She has seen her
share of fakes, and she does not take kindly to them. Even worse is when she is accused of being one. So
imagine her chagrin when she expects to spend a quiet weekend at the Sandpiper Inn working on a book about
haunted houses only to meet a ghost hunting team with its own skeptic, who greets Ellis with a jaundiced eye.

She has met her match in both getting to the bottom of the haunting of the Sandpiper Inn and proving to skeptic
John “Beck” Becker that she is the real deal. The problem is that Beck and Ellis have more serious worries. The

Valuable Cargo available from Liquid Silver Books

Tanna Aldrick is the captain of a deep space salvage ship in the twenty-ninth century. When she and her all-
female crew stumble upon an ancient ship floating in the middle of nowhere, they figure they might be able to
find a few valuable tidbits left on the decrepit spacecraft. But what they discover is more valuable than
anything they could have ever imagined finding – a gorgeous hunk of a man from the twenty-second century,
perfectly preserved in cryogenic suspension. Mankind has changed a lot in seven-hundred years, and six-foot-
four, blond-haired, blue-eyed guys like him aren’t just rare; they’re nonexistent.

From the moment they revive him, Tanna finds herself falling for their handsome passenger. As logical as her
reasons for not getting romantically involved with him are, however, she still finds herself inviting him into her
bed.

Garrick Carlisle wakes up after seven-hundred years in hypersleep to find that everything and everyone he
knew is gone. Lost and disconnected, the only thing that keeps him from completely losing it is the beautiful
and sexy, dark-haired ship’s captain who rescued him.

Tanna isn’t the only person interested in Garrick, though. A man like him would bring a high price on the slave
blocks on any number of planets and there are a lot of unscrupulous people in the galaxy willing to do anything
to get their hands on him.

How far will Tanna go to protect her valuable cargo and what will Garrick do to stay with the woman he has
come to love?

ARTICLES
What Foods Are Good for Your Sex Drive and Promote Sexual Endurance?
-by Elizabeth Black for Sex Is

September is officially, for most of us, the end of summer. In honor of that I give you:

Ode to Summer
by Kissa Starling

No more luscious tan line
To touch while thinking 'oh so fine'.
No more splashing around in the water
All that fun is now just fodder.
No more staying up all night
gazing at stars and hoping for delight.
No more sex on the beach
Where sand got places you couldn't even reach.
No more swimming for those little sperm
Oh wait, fall is also a good time for the worm!

But seriously, all of us at Midnight Seductions hope your summer was filled with adventure. And may your fall
be full of worms!

GLBT Bookshelf
by Adriana Kraft

If you like to read or write m/m, f/f or anything with GLBT themes and characters, you’ll remember the
enormous outcry last April when all such books were suddenly removed from the search database at Amazon.

13 Midnight Seductions September 2009 Newsletter
Over on Twitter it quickly gained the name #amazonfail, and many analysts think it was the upsurge of
publicity and rapid response from tweeters that warned Amazon to reverse its tracks.

Could it happen again? Possibly, but now we have our own failsafe option: The GLBT Bookshelf—all your
favorite GLBT authors and all their books, in one central location! It’s the brainchild of GLBT author Mel
Keegan, from Down Under. He’s created a Wiki site where member authors can set up their author pages and
feature their books and reviews. Different from Amazon, Fictionwise and All Romance eBooks, it doesn’t have
a central shopping cart but rather features a buy link for every book. We, the authors, are in total control of the
content we post, and that’s the key to preventing an AmazonFail phenomenon.

Check us out – five Midnight Seductions authors who write GLBT books are already active on the site:

RECIPES
By Dee Shore

This past August I was in Atlantic City to celebrate one of my best-friends 30th birthday. Any who, The
Tropicana has a great Irish pub called Ri-Ra and there I discovered my new favorite drink:

Red Headed Slut
1 part Cranberry juice
1 part Peach Schnapps
1 part Jagermeister

Directions: Mix together with crushed ice in a glass and garnish with mint leaves. Enjoy!

English Toffee Recipe

1/2 cup (200 g) unsalted butter (one stick)
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 small block of Baker's Chocolate (about 5 or 6 oz./170 g)

Select a small saucepan. Make sure the saucepan is large enough to contain about double the volume of the
butter and sugar. As the mixture cooks, it will bubble and increase in volume - using too small of a pan may
result in overflows. USE A CANDY THERMOMETER. Let the heat rise gradually, stirring all the time. Allow

14 Midnight Seductions September 2009 Newsletter
the water to boil off, but keep stirring. When the mixture reaches 300 degrees F it should have a creamy
texture. Remove it from the heat. Pour in the vanilla extract and stir well to mix.

Immediately use a spatula to scrape the mixture onto parchment paper, and spread it out with the spatula until it
is about 1/4 inch thick. Use a grater, and finely grate the block of chocolate over the mixture until the mixture
is well-covered. Use all of the chocolate. When you are finished, place the toffee in the freezer so that it sets.
When it is cooled and set, remove from the freezer. Place a clean towel over the toffee, and crack it into bite-
sized pieces with a hammer. Store in a baggie in the refrigerator.

Enjoy!
