T is for titillating.

No, not me.  Well, not right at the moment.  I'm wearing trackies and sitting in the freezing cold at my computer.  I'm more arctic than titillating just now.

I refer to Lillian Grant's Male Review which is out TODAY.  Buckle yourselves in, we're in for a sexy ride.  If you're not eighteen, close the browser and come back next week when we get all over U.  Thank y'all.

Here's a teaser from Male Review:

A nymphomaniac octogenarian great aunt, a frigid mother, and a BDSM male strip club, what could possibly go wrong?

The cover:

Isn't it evocative?  And yes, that hand belongs to THE MAN WITH THE BIG...HAT.

Click through and you will understand my excitement.  And possible titillation.  (I can't leave the cover for Male Order here on my blog.  Last time I drooled, and shorted out my keyboard.  It's getting expensive.  So perhaps, cover your keyboard with something waterproof and THEN click through.)

But first, before we dive into the awesomeness that is the sequel to Male Order, next in the REIGNING MEN series, we should really talk about what 'titillate' actually means.

I would be the first to admit that the 'tit' in 'titillating' has made me snigger like a ten-year-old since, well, I was ten years old.  While there is actually more to it than that, there may well still be snorting.

This, from Merriam Webster dotcom:

Talk about appropriate!

Lillian Grant is a fellow SARA (South Australian Romance Author), and also one of the few members who could seriously take me on for the title of class clown.  ;) She is fabulous fun, and so are her books. 

And her newest book is out today.  Now, just quietly, it's not for the faint of heart.  Perhaps if you've just eaten, or haven't eaten and your blood sugar is a little low, or maybe recently had major surgery, you might like to wait until you're feeling more robust.  Wouldn't want anything to pop/expire/fall out from over-exertion.  Or even over-titillation.

But, if you're up for a smoking hot, sexy read, get thee over to your favourite ebook store and download MALE REVIEW now!  It's available from today US time.  

Check out Lillian's blog for a giveaway, as well. That's sure to get your heart thumping!

Here's the blurb from Lillian's blog:

Sam Stephens and Meg Riley are in love, and finally on the cusp of sex anytime, anywhere, anyhow. That is until Meg’s Great Aunt Maud, the octogenarian nymphomaniac, gets tossed out of the old folk’s home and moves in with them, closely followed by her polar opposite, Meg’s scarily frigid mother.
When Meg’s best friend Laura convinces Aunt Maud to invest in Male Review, a BDSM themed male strip joint, it seems to be just one more step along the path to madness. Laura’s last venture ended with Meg being arrested as a pimp. When former prostitute Michael is hired as the bar manager the whole thing is surely destined for disaster. He’s to blame for the crazies invading Meg’s home and even worse, he still has the hots for her.
If she wants to get her life back all Meg needs to do is find a new home for Maud, resolve the dispute between her warring parents, keep Michael at arm’s length and rescue her relationship with Sam before it disintegrates completely. Male Review appears to be just one more problem to deal with, but perhaps it could provide an unexpected solution.

Sounds great.  Congrats, Lillian!  


  1. Thanks take over the role of class clown? Never :)

  2. Hehe. I think you're fully capable, Lillian!

    Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the Man in the big... hat.
