Excerpt Tuesday



Sizzling Nights, 1

Katie Thomas has been living a secret life for four years to keep safe. She’s scared and not sure what to do, until she moves next door to fellow doctor, Chad Davis. One sizzling night together has her yearning for more, but what he wants in the bedroom is a threat to everything she’s ever believed.
Chad Davis has always had a thing for the sexy doctor. Assigned to protect Katie, he is determined to bring down her ex. His reasons are personal, but one erotic night together in his bed is all it takes for his priorities to shift. He is not giving her up, no matter how much she insists she is not right for him.
Can Chad help Katie unlock her hidden desires and prove to her she means more to him than a fling?



Be Warned: BDSM, violence

Excerpt
The moans coming from Katie just about did him in. Chad lowered her onto the bed and the grip of her arms around his neck tightened. For a moment, she pulled away from the kiss.
“I’ve got you. I won’t drop you.”
A smile crossed her face and made his heart grip tighter against his chest. He was going to enjoy teaching her to be submissive.
“Take your shirt off,” he said with a gruff voice.
“What?”
“You heard what I said.” She stiffened and pulled her legs against her chest. Chad stifled a curse. He had to get his dominant side in check if he was going to reach her. He couldn’t go all “hard-ass” on her the first time. What she needed right now was reassurance that she was safe enough with him to truly let go.
“You’re not going to take it off?” Uncertainty laced her voice. .
“If I wanted to take it off of you, I would have.” Kneeling on the bed beside her, Chad promised himself to go as slowly as she needed. His gut told him she wanted this even if she wasn’t sure how it worked. It was part of his job to show her what her body wanted, needed and craved deep down inside. “If you didn’t have a fantasy about this, you wouldn’t have books on BDSM. Let me show you what your body secretly craves.”
“I’m not a helpless bimbo that needs to be told what to do to get off,” she spit back.
He hardly kept his laugh inside. She still wanted to fight what he knew her body wanted, but her independent streak was woven so deeply that she didn’t want to let go and feel. Hell, after all she’d been through, he could understand why. That was one thing he admired about her.  Katie didn’t take shit from anyone.

This week I’m still using my book, Bound To Protect for my six. I hope you enjoy this little snippet. Thank you all for all the comments I got last week.

Katie paid for her drink and hurried out the door. “Since you didn’t answer my question, I’ll take it you haven’t gotten lucky in the past month. You still have a stick up your ass.”
“Why don’t you go talk to someone who actually wants to talk to you?” How had he gotten his coffee so fast? Katie had hoped to be able to get on the elevator before he made his way out.

Q&A With Kiru Taye


Q&A with romance author Kiru Taye
Kiru’s brief bio: Kiru is the author of passionate contemporary, historical and paranormal romance. Her debut historical novella set in pre-colonial West Africa, His Treasure, is an All Romance eBooks best seller and a Love Romances Cafe Best Book of 2011 nominee.





Alyssa: So, Kiru, how long have you been writing?


Kiru: Hi Alyssa, it’s great to be your guest today. I started writing seriously in January 2010. Prior to that, the last time I wrote stories was in high school. 


Alyssa: What made you pick writing romance?


Kiru: Romantic fiction is a genre I love reading. Out of the paperbacks on my bookshelves, or eBooks on my eReaders (yep, I’ve got two of those) 90% are romance novels. So it kind of made sense that I write about what I love.


Alyssa: Are you the kind of author who needs a certain drink or snack nearby when writing? If so, what is it?


Kiru:  Well, I’ve got to have my cup of hot drink (coffee or Chai tea, depending on my mood) before I can even write anything coherent. lol

Alyssa: How has your life changed since becoming published?

Kiru:  It’s more chaotic. I’m lucky I have a patient husband who appreciates that I don’t work a 9 to 5 job like everyone else.  When I’ve got a deadline, everything else takes a back seat.


Alyssa: What can you tell me about your newest release?


Kiru:  His Strength is book 2 in my Men of Valor historical romance series. It follows the story of Ikem and Nneka who were briefly mentioned in book 1, His Treasure. Each story is a stand-alone and can be read independently. But they are all set in the same location, a village in ancient West Africa and occur around the same event—the New Yam festival. So you get to see how this one event affects the lives of the characters differently. Ikem is a strong alpha who has no qualms about how to tame his strong-willed quarry. But Nneka has a few tricks up her sleeves and certainly keeps him on his toes till the last page.































Here’s the blurb:

When a warrior seeks to claim a free-spirited woman, he soon discovers a tigress unwilling to be caged.
As a young widow, Nneka yearns to be released from the obligations to her late husband’s family and live as an independent woman. With a past coloured by a brutal father, she’ll never yield to another man willingly and will do just about anything to attain that freedom including flouting the laws of the land.

Ikem was unable to claim Nneka once because his lineage meant he wasn’t good enough. Now fate has given him another chance. But he quickly discovers that claiming this unpredictable wildcat is easier said than done. Will he be able to convince her that succumbing to their passion is the key to her freedom?




His Strength excerpt:

Nneka stood before him, her smooth brown skin glowing in the lamplight in her hands, her dark eyes and mouth wide open, shocked. Dressed in light nightwear, she looked ready for sleep. His gaze was drawn to the way her dress was wrapped around her body, accentuating her curves. It drew his attention to the swell of her breasts in the dimness of the light.

“W-what are you doing here?” He noticed the slight quake in her subdued voice. Its tremulous tone resonated in the pit of his stomach. His body’s response was primal. To stop himself from reaching for her, he folded his arms across his chest. His body filled her doorway.

“I told you I’d come here if you didn’t meet me today. I keep my word.”

With a dismissive shrug, she lifted an eyebrow. The self-assured gleam back in her eyes. “Well, I never said I was going to meet you. You assumed. Your mistake.”

He’d give her that. She hadn’t verbally agreed to meet him. He’d assumed she’d agreed after she succumbed to his kiss. “A mistake I won’t be making again.” He frowned to show his displeasure.

“You shouldn’t be here. Go home. Someone might see you.”

She moved to close the door, but he put his foot out to stop her. “You’d better let me in then, unless you want your in-laws to know I’m here. I don’t mind, either way.” Flexing his fingers, he kept his arms folded. He yearned to run his hands down her smooth, pliant skin.

Her eyes held a furious glare for a while, but she opened the door wider, moving out of the way. Stooping to avoid hitting his head on the low door frame, he walked in. She shut the door behind him and placed the lamp in the wall sconce.

“You need to be quick about your visit. It’s been a long day, and I need my sleep.”

She remained standing near the door as he surveyed the room. It was of modest size with a long table and bench. In the corner, she stored her cooking wares. A door led off the room to what he assumed was the sleeping chamber. The air was scented with orange zest. He’d smelled it on her the other day. Realizing it was Nneka’s scent, he turned to find her with her arms folded across her chest. It lifted her breasts into prominence. The twin peaks of her nipples pouted in his direction. The smoldering embers of his desire crackled to life again. His manhood swelled.

“The night is still young, Nneka. There’ll be plenty of time to sleep yet.”

His Strength is now available to pre-order via Breathless Press.

Ryan  is a sexy Private Investigator that loves her. 

He brings her secret fantasies to life, ice cream covered flesh, dominance, handcuffs and the ultimate desire of another woman. However, their wild sexcapade ends when Jade’s husband returns and their oasis returns to desert. Can they survive apart now that they have tasted true love? 

These lovers have a one-week affair that will change their lives forever.

Who’s ready for some naughty bits and wild romps? In my new novella Seven Days in Jade, I have a lonely wife, Jade, who needs a good loving from a sexy private investigator. Below is a sneak peek into part two – Watch Me Wednesday.
Excerpt

Jade decided to accept this for what it was—an amazing affair with the perfect man.
The skirt she wore was too tight, her panties wet with need, and she could barely contain her need when she opened the door. It took a few tries because the key didn’t seem to share her enthusiasm. A little more focus and the front door of her home unlocked. She stepped inside, dropped the briefcase as the door closed, and hid her horny body from the world. “Ryan!” she called out, loud and sensual.
He yelled something back, far away and inaudible.
“Why can’t you ever be naked on the couch and ready to…” Words failed as she discovered him. He was on the second story landing; a rose in his hand, red her favorite kind. He had this naughty smile rising on his face. It distinctly reminded her of a predator catching prey. Shivers ran down her body, lingering on her nipples and between her legs.
“What was that about naked and on a couch?”
“Nothing.” She licked her lips and stared at his bare chest. The jeans were so low on his hips she could see the tuft of hair that led to his penis. Maybe she should obtain a photo of him naked, that way she could drool at work and not be astounded at the sight of her lover every time she laid her eyes on him…okay so she would drool anyway. He was just that yummy.
“I have a surprise…” he added and adjusted his crotch. “First some rules.”
Oh goody, she really loved his rules. He was so inventive.

Six Sentence Sunday


Before I share this week’s six I want to thank all my fans for a great release of Bound To Protect. It’s made the bestseller list over at ARe and Bookstrand.  I’m still going to use Chad and Katie this week and it’s a continuous of last week’s six.

Not that she’d admit that to him after all she’d been through. If he was going to play his cards right, he’d have to tone it down and show her he was different. That she could trust him outside the bedroom and inside.
“You could have fooled us.”
“Good, hopefully it’s working on Kaden, and now he’ll leave her alone.”
“What’s the news you wanted to share with us?”

Q&A With Raven McAllan


I got some amazing news this morning. Bound To Protect is a Bestseller on ARe in the suspense category and also a hot-selling title on Bookstrand.

  1.  London Saint James ‘s blog with an author interview along with a giveaway of my newest release Bound To Protect.
  2. Sex Marks The G-Spot with an excerpt.

 For Question and Answers, I have Raven McAllan with me today.

How long have you been writing? seriously, just over a year casually for ever it seems.
What made you pick writing erotic? (Laughs) I didn’t, I think it picked me
Are you the kind of author who needs a certain drink or snack near by when writing? If so what is it? Coffee and chocolate during the day and wine and chocolate during the evening
How has your life changed since becoming published? More dust bunnies more wine more er erotic thoughts, less free time
What can you tell me about your newest release?

What do you do when a drop dead gorgeous man turns up on your doorstep, demanding his wife? Who, it seems has stolen your identity? Find out why of course.

When Gray Reynard turns up on Jules’ doorstep expecting to find his estranged wife and finds her instead both are surprised. Especially as the air between them sizzles. But before they can do anything about that sizzle they need to find out what is going on. Or so they think.
But life doesn’t always pan out as you want, and Jules and Gray have to decide whether to work together or walk away from what they are feeling.



Excerpt
“Think positive.” She advised him. “You might get the diary where I’ve written about making love on a pool table or having sex with David Beckham in a swimming pool.”
The look on his face was priceless. She wished she could capture it and sell it. She’d make millions.
“You didn’t?”
“Well, not David Beckham, sadly. As for the pool table?  You’ll have to wait and see.”
“Give me a diary,” he said fervently. “I need pointers.”
He doesn’t, she thought. He really doesn’t.
“Backwards.” Jules decided. “You work through them from when you met her. If anything stands out, or seems weird, and pool tables do not come under the heading of weird, make a note of it. I’ll start from my book being published and go forward. How does that sound?”
“Long. But yes, I guess it’s all we can do.”
Well, not all, she thought. I can think of several other things we could do. But they won’t help us read these diaries. As Gray laughed, the tone deep and sexy, she wondered if he had read her mind. But no, he had just read an entry in her most recent diary. Written the day before.
“A drop-dead gorgeous, play-your-cards-right-and-you-can-have-me man appeared on my doorstep. I thought all my birthdays had come at once, before I realized he was a real up-his-own-ass type asshole.” He read her words aloud. “Pity, because I could do with a really good—”
“Enough!” Jules’ cheeks burned and were no doubt scarlet. “Shit, shit, shit! I forgot I’d written yesterday. But why the hell have you got it? You should be reading three years ago.” Mortified, she realized she’d picked up her current diary when she took all the others from her bag. “Think I’ll have that back, please.”
“Hold on.” Gray kept his right hand firmly on the diary, holding it in place while he wrote something under her entry, then handed it back.
“Thank you so much. Oh.” She read what he’d written and her cheeks grew even hotter. “Oh, um, yes, er.”
“Yes?”
“Just shut up, Gray. Please. I’m hot and bothered enough, and do not even say it. Yeah, I know, you could make me even hotter . . . oh, bugger it. I’ve done it again. My feet are in my mouth as much as yours are. In your mouth, I mean, not mine and . . . . Fu . . . . Stop this right now.”
Gray lay half out of his chair, laughing so hard tears streamed down his face.
A second later, Jules was in the same state.
“Oh, God,” she said when she could at last speak coherently. “I needed that. No more, though. No innuendos, no double speak. Nothing. We need to work.”
