THE CAPTURE (The Marriage Diaries, Volume #6)
Invitation to Eden
by Erika Wilde
Review by Dana Marie
I have to say this book was not only sexy, it was refreshing. This fun erotic read has a fast pace that keeps your attention from page one. I couldn’t imagine a better way to pull off keeping that sizzle in a marriage after twenty years.
The characters are easy to grasp your head around and enjoy. Dean is a man that has the heart of a captain that needs to take control. However, he also has a ravenous pirate soul that has a need to claim his booty. His wife, Jillian, is more than willing to play. The only question is, how long will it take for her to let herself be claimed by her rogue pirate. After all, it is one of her fantasies.
The story has a little bit of everything. The fact that it was about an older married couple willing to plan out and role play made it refreshing. It was enticing and sensual without being overly intense. I’ll definitely be checking out more stories by Ericka Wilde. Loved it!
There isn’t much that Jillian Noble can resist when it comes to her sexy, gorgeous husband, Dean. She’s become very independent in her daily life, but privately, behind closed doors, Jillian finds she loves submitting to her husband’s more dominant, erotic demands.
When Dean surprises her with an Invitation to Eden and promises to fulfill one of her secret fantasies, she can’t wait to find out what’s in store. While on the mysterious island, she’s auctioned off to a rogue pirate and imprisoned as his slave. What he commands of her is shocking, but there is no denying this dark, forbidden stranger, or the exquisite pleasure that comes with her ultimate surrender.
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. Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!

After reading about this, I had to find a recipe…
Amaretto Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries
About 24 strawberries, stems and leaves attached
2 ounces dark chocolate
2 ounces milk chocolate
2 ounces white chocolate
extra dark and white chocolate for drizzling
Gently rinse and pat dry strawberries. Place on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels.
Draw a little Amaretto into a syringe. (You can get one at a pharmacy)
Gently insert the plastic tip of the syringe into the underside of the strawberry, slowly depressing the stopper to inject the Amaretto. Watch carefully – you will see the strawberry puff up as the liquor fills it. Pat dry any excess Amaretto and place on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels.
Using a microwave safe container, and working with one dish at a time, place chocolate in microwave at medium power for 1- 1 1/2 minutes.
Remove and stir. If not melted, return to microwave and repeat heating step, stirring every 30 seconds, as scorching can occur. When small lumps remain, remove and continue to stir to complete melting.
Carefully hold a strawberry by the stem and dip/swirl the berry in the chocolate.
Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
Repeat until all strawberries have been dipped.
Place cookie sheet in refrigerator until chocolate is set.
Serve with whatever your heart desires.
