Golden Priestess Me'la is the chosen lover of Traz Duran, guardian of the boy who will be Speaker to the Star God. One week in each other's arms is all Me'la and Traz have. Even as they're lost in a haze of sexual bliss, a tender love grows between them.

When Kira Maxwell decides to trade in her lousy sex life for a very expensive vibrator, she visits the classiest joint on the Las Vegas strip to make her purchase. She hopes to at least keep her body satisfied, because her heart has yet to find satisfaction from any man.
 
However, The Great Smenkare vibrator isn’t a regular sex toy. Cursed because his selfish behavior caused the death of Bastet’s favorite priestess, Smenkare has paid the price over and over for his selfish use of women. He wants nothing more than to be freed from Bastet’s service…until he meets the funny and sweet Kira.
 
A spell is cast between two people who can heal each other—but the magic holding Smenkare in Kira’s arms only lasts thirty days.
 
Publisher’s Note:  You just can’t keep a good story down. Previously published as The Lust Bastion in Ellora’s Cave’s Lighthearted Lust anthology, the story was rebirthed with another publisher under the title Wish Upon a Prince. But now, revised and expanded with lots more “lust”, it’s back where it belongs under a new title and a new pen name. If you enjoyed Bastet, the mysterious character in Can’t Buy Me Lust, she’s back to her mischievousness in All You Need Is Lust.

Local “history” says Gilmore Tucker sold Paradise, the beautiful slave he loved, and murdered his wife. So why is Gilmore trapped in his old plantation house, lamenting his lost love and fending off the evil bitch he married?

Enter Kylie Goldheart, looking for a place to belong and hoping the abandoned Tucker’s Plantation will be it. After cracking her noggin by a push from a not-so-friendly ghost, she’s rescued by Gil Baker, Gilmore’s descendent, who has returned to honor his ancestors by reuniting Paradise with her soul mate…if sprinkling her ashes on Gilmore’s grave can be considered an appropriate reunion.

The attraction between Kylie and very sexy Gil is intense, but their instant romance riles the evil lingering among the crumbling ruins of the magnificent old house.
