Erika Wilde turns up the heat in THE MARRIAGE DIARIES, an erotic series about a married couple who take intimacy and passion to the extreme.

After nearly twenty years of marriage, Jillian Noble is ready to put some spice back into her sex life with her gorgeous husband, Dean. After seducing him at his office, Jillian reveals what she wants, and her husband is more than happy to oblige. Erotic fantasies are fulfilled, and forbidden passions surface as they open themselves up to a provocative world where boundaries are pushed to the limit and pleasure is the ultimate goal.

But Dean has a dark past, and even darker desires that he’s kept a tight rein on all these years. When he gives his wife a taste of his more illicit appetite, will she embrace his carnal needs, or beg for mercy?

WARNING: Contains explicit sexual content and is recommended for mature readers who enjoy erotic situations, as well as graphic language and imagery.

The Marriage Diaries (Volumes #1 - #4)The Marriage Diaries by Erika Wilde

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This box set was a quick and entertaining read. I was able to read volumes 1-4 in one afternoon.

I enjoyed the fact that these stories were based around a loving, married couple who are in their upper 30's. Their sex life has gotten a little "vanilla" and routine, so Jillian decides to spice things up. Their two grown sons have moved out of the house, so she decides that it's the perfect time to start showing her ex-Navy Seal husband, Dean, that she's ready to take a walk on the wild side. Her attempts at seduction and experimentation work exceptionally well, and she unlocks a dominant, super alpha-male side of her husband that she has never seen in the bedroom...and she LOVES it!

I appreciated the fact that, like I said above, this story was about a married couple that are a little older. I love reading about hot, kinky sex, but it seems it always centers around young 21-something kids who are either just having a fling or have been dating for all of two minutes. It's nice to read about characters that are a little more relatable to a lot of women in the world. Plus, I think this sends out a great message that kinky sex and experimentation doesn't have to be thrown out the window when you have kids, or when you get older. And carried out within the bounds of a loving, committed marriage, it can be a LOT of fun!

I also enjoyed the fact that these stories weren't just pure porn. There was a story, there was character development, and it was all very well written. Overall, I truly enjoyed reading this, and I will pick up future volumes to see what else Dean and Jillian decide to try out!

About the Author

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name?

As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance. However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with. That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates. My next book, THE INVITATION, will introduce the men of that new series, THE PLAYERS CLUB.
