Closed Spaces Lead to Steamy Encounters in Avon Impulse Series

Alice Gaines continues her erotic romance series, Cabin Fever, with a feral new entry.

As the Fifty Shades trilogy has opened up erotic romance to the wider reading public, readers clamor for more books to satisfy their nearly insatiable desire to experience a love story told through the lens of a physical relationship. Alice Gaines’ erotic Cabin Fever novellas provide a quick and fun naughty escape. The central question of the series is simple: what will two (or more) people get up to when they need to pass the time? With nowhere to go and sex on the brain, these characters explore their wildest fantasies.

The first two entries in the series have been hits with reviewers. Library Journal says book one, HEAT RISES, “takes the romantic trope of stranding two people together and kicks it up a notch” and that book two, STORM BOUND, is “highly recommended.” The third e-original novella in the series, MATING SEASON (on sale from Avon Impulse August 14, 2012; e-ISBN 9780062210616; $1.99) continues the closed-quarter sexiness. As Laurie Garrison from Bitten By Paranormal Romance says, “The heat in this novella is palpable; it's like August in Phoenix hot!”

Being stuck together in the redwood forest can really bring your inner animal out.

The last thing Gayle Richards wanted was to spend days alone in a cabin with Nolan Hersch, fellow professor and macho loudmouth. How could she observe the animals’ mating habits alongside a man who made her blood boil…and not just in anger? The only thing more frustrating than Nolan’s opinions on male sexual superiority was how much he made her want to rip his clothes off.

Well, the thin air in the mountains must have gone to Gayle’s head, because she sets up a challenge: three days to prove who’s more insatiable in bed. With Gayle and Nolan making their best effort to wear each other out, this might just be the sexiest experiment of all.
