Good things come in threes…the naughtier the better.

Love in a Bottle, Book 1

Cassandra Parker has a secret: she’s in love with David Michalek, the sexy consultant she’s assisting on a major project for her company. She also has a rule: no office romances.

Then she finds a magic bottle, and a genie who promises to make all her X-rated fantasies come true—in dreams set in the past, present, and future.

As Lady Cassandra, she is swept off her medieval feet and out of her gown by tournament champion Sir David of Micheline, who proves he is as much a master of the sensual arts as he is of the martial.

As party girl Cass, sexy twins David and Mitch double team her with their challenge to decide which brother is the better lover.

And as exotic galactic Princess Kazzandra, she learns that nothing is hotter than having triplet consorts Davyd, Davon, and Dev eager to answer her every erotic whim.

In the real world, though, office politics take a malicious turn, leaving Cassie wishing more than ever that her dreams could become reality. Then she discovers she isn’t the only one with a fantasy or three…

Sometimes wishes are granted and, if you’re lucky, dreams can come true.

Cassandra Parker is a busy girl, working hard for her company and lusting over sexy David Michalek, one of the consultants working in her office. Her wicked cravings for him are kept neatly under wraps until, that is, a mysterious package arrives, containing not just a bottle of perfume, but also a genie.

Cassandra then finds herself plunged into three dreams, past, present and future, where she is the star of the show and David, or Davids in the plural, are her suitors. The dreams are hot and raunchy, take her to Heaven and back and leave her wanting the real thing even more. But life isn’t a dream and an evil contemporary is making Cassandra’s life almost unbearable, pushing her to snapping point, and beyond!

I enjoyed the premise of this story very much, it’s nice to come across something a little different in the erotic romance genre. The dreams were a great addition to the novel, they meant that the action got started, even before the couple could figure out the crinkles in their relationship. I liked how the author doubled and tripled David in the dreams – very naughty, great fun! A nice excuse to act out some fantasies too.

The dialogue was sharp, all of the conversations with meddling Amber had me clenching my fists – wicked woman. The genie was sweet – nice that it was a woman – and enough part of the story to be functional but not THE story, the plot was definitely Cassie focused. Sex scenes were steamy, I liked the last one the best, but that was probably because David really did if for me too, I could see why Cassie had got her panties in a twist over him – Phew!

A good novel, nice characters, realistic but magical, enough between the sheets action to stoke the fire and a lovely ending.


  1. I’m so happy you enjoyed the book! It was tons of fun to write. 🙂
