Ophelia Bell is such a great author, I couldn’t pick just one. Here are two book reviews instead.
A little about Ophelia First:
Ophelia Bell loves a good bad-boy and especially strong women in her stories. Women who aren’t apologetic about enjoying sex and bad boys who don’t mind being with a woman who’s in charge, at least on the surface, because pretty much anything goes in the bedroom.
Ophelia grew up on a rural farm in North Carolina and now lives in Los Angeles with her own tattooed bad-boy husband and four attention-whoring cats.

I’ve done it! I’ve done it! After 13 years of spending every waking moment at the computer learning and writing stories, I’m finally ready to publish. I started this journey with the hopes of publishing historical romance because I was tired of spending my money on crappy books.
Little did I know the first thing I published would be a contemporary romance about voyeurism and exhibitionism. Voyeur in the Mist was a three-year project that took on a life of its own. The whole story came about on a dare. I thought voyeur in the mist sounded like a great title for a romance book. The next thing I knew, I was dared to write it and write it I did.
Three years of working on the story, putting it away in the back of the closet, and hauling it back out to make it shiny. I’ve done my homework, gotten critiques and beta reads. I think it’s ready for the world. The cover was a gift from a friend, who just so happens to be the co-owner and editor in chief ofMugwump Press. Thank you, Megan Lewis. Taylor Fox did the formatting and all of the graphic advertisements. Then I just followed the step-by-step instructions to publish it on Amazon.
I give you, Voyeur in the Mist.

As a high school teacher, she tries her best to hide her desire, but her inner exhibitionist wants out. A chance encounter at the Dentist’s office might just be what Susan needs to finally get what she has always dreamed about. Now all she has to do is to convince the mysterious man to help her.

He enjoys his quiet life, dating no one in particular, but that all changes when he bumps into a pretty young woman with kinky sexual ideas, that skirt the law. Her exciting inclinations arouse him, filling him with an undeniable urge to join in her escapades.
Will they risk everything for an exciting sex life or play it safe?
I’ve invited a really good erotica writer to join us this week for an interview. Imogen Keeper, better known as Immy. Her favorite things are maternity pants, family, friends, orchids, tough critiques, and blueberries. She isn’t sure who she likes more Steve Harvey or Khai but both are her favorite people in the universe, or so she says. Not only does Immy write steamy romance, she also puts pen to paper in Urban Fantasy.
