Sin At Seas -Release Date June 25, 2013
When Alysin decided to surprise her boyfriend at work with dinner, the surprise was on her. Since he was going at it with his secretary on the conference table, she packed a bag and called her BFF. Jolie and Alysin had been traveling the country, working as digital nomads for ten years ever since graduation. Taking this as a sign it was time for a new move, they decided to take a cruise, regroup, and make a plan.
Then she meets Mr. Bedroom Eyes. Following her lead, they pretend to be married so that she can rid herself of the guy who started hitting on her before the boat left the dock. Though it was supposed to be a momentary arrangement, he asks her to take it one step farther. Then another and another. The cruise promises to be memorable in every way that matters. Along the way, Alysin learns that she won’t have to fake an orgasm if she’s with someone who knows what to do, that not all men suck, but the best ones suck really well, and that sometimes what starts out as something pretend, can fast become something completely real. Will the woman who lives life with no regrets, regret that she made that stupid rule about not exchanging names and contact info?
REVIEW: Sin at Sea is the first novella in Emma Nichols contemporary adult erotic novella series focusing on thirty year old Alysin (Sin) Nixon.
NOTE: As with all erotic storylines, SIN AT SEA is not recommended for anyone under eighteen years of age as it contains F/F, M/F/F and M/F/M/F sexual situations.
After finding her boyfriend of two years having sex with his secretary, Alysin (Sin as she likes to be called) packed her bags, and along with her BFF Jolie embarked on a seven day cruise to the Caribbean to forget about life for a while. But, what Sin never expected, was to fall in love with the man of her dreams.
The storyline and premise are very quick to build. The relationship and attraction is immediate: the sexual heat and tension is throughout the novella but there is also the growing bond between two strangers who know nothing about each other but what they see before their eyes. In this, there is the beginning of love without any of the baggage that most people bring but there is also the possibility that something is not quite right on the horizon.
The world building is limited as the storyline is character driven. Because of the erotic nature of the novella, there is plenty of talk and action between the sheets, as well as some questionable situations.
Although the premise was interesting especially for an erotic novella series, there were a few plot points that I felt were unnecessary to the overall flow of the story and in this, I can’t help but wonder why they were included. For shock value? I am not sure, but I would have enjoyed the story more without a couple of these situations. They felt disconnected to the storyline and without any real purpose.
Sin at Sea is a quick read with a variety of sexual situations that may not be for every reader. The premise is a little different than most, which is welcome, in a genre that is rife with inexperienced virgins and billionaire Doms. Our hero is the epitome of perfection and every woman’s fantasy come to life. If you are looking to expand your erotic reading horizons, Sin at Sea is a fun, sensual and sexually erotic storyline.

Vixen in Vegas: Release Date August 13, 2013
It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.Soon Alysin will be tested. After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules.
Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?
REVIEW: Vixen in Vegas is the second storyline in Emma Nichol’s Sinful Novella series and picks up immediately following Sin at Sea.
NOTE: The two novellas are available in one book format as The Sinful Series. You must read the series in order as much of the premise in Vixen in Vegas is built upon the information revealed in the first novella Sin at Sea.
In the previous novella, our couple agreed to one week of sex and fun pretending to be a married couple. Not expecting to fall in love, Sin and Mr.BE agree to continue to see one another on dry land. One week later, Sin and Jolie pack up and move to Vegas where another whirlwind affair between Sin and Mr.BE finds the couple falling head over heals and the realization that not all is well.
There were hints of a potential problem in Sin at Sea and throughout Vixen in Vegas the building of the revelation increases with every sexual encounter and excursion; every labored breath and every heartfelt declaration.
The storyline is a journey about two people who have fallen in love at a time when they needed love the most. This is also a story of family and loss; sorrow and pain; and one woman’s journey to maturity and self-actualization.
Vixen in Vegas is a story of never giving up and letting go; and finding the strength to start all over again, when the end is just around the corner.
