Excerpt Tuesday

This week’s Excerpt Tuesday comes from my newest release. It’s a hot read from nine authors. It’s already a bestseller on ARe and Bookstrand.

Bailey watched as her gaze darkened, his erection pressed
painfully against his shorts, and still he couldn’t let go of her. When she’d opened the door thirty minutes ago, he damn near choked on his tongue. Laura’s pink tank top caressed her chest and hips like a lover’s hand. The tight cut-off shorts she wore forced all the blood from his body south, and he moved the toolbox in front to hide his erection.
He hadn’t seen her properly in the seven years since his high school graduation. He had moved away for college and by the time he’d gotten back, she had moved away to college. They’d ran into each other at a mutual friend’s party a couple nights ago. He’d thought the attraction would have been long gone, but no and this time it felt even stronger. He still loved her. When the hell did she get breasts?
And those hips would have any man falling behind her panting. He’d always thought she was pretty, but Greg had warned him back in High School not to look at her in that way.
Bailey reached around and grabbed her little waist, pulling her close. Her breath caught as she stared back at him. Slowly her tongue peeked out and moistened her lips. He desperately wanted to know how that tongue would feel on his cock.
“When did you grow up?” His voice sounded as if he’d swallowed gravel. His gaze drifted down her shoulders, to her perky breasts.
“It’s been a few years.”
When he reached around to remove her hair tie, her eyes never left his. Fuck, he should keep his promise to Greg, but having the reason for his late night wet dreams wrapped in his arms, made it hard to think of anything else. He’d lost count of how many times he’d fantasized about her. Laura’s breasts pressed against his chest, lighting his body on fire. He couldn’t take it anymore.
His right hand slid down her neck, past her shoulder, on a path towards her hips before he moved back over her taut stomach. Sliding two fingers over the soft side of her breast, she moaned. Bailey cupped her cheek, leaned in, and pressed his lips lightly against hers. Slowly he traced her lips in a silent plea to open.
As she obliged, he slanted his mouth over hers, peaches assaulted his senses. God, he needed more of her. Whatever blood he had left in his body went straight to his cock. With the next swipe of his tongue, he took the kiss deepen; her arms snaked around his neck. After a moment, she pressed her body closer to his and relaxed into the kiss. When had he ever gotten so lost in a kiss?

Laura turned and caught sight of Bailey working over the sink, his biceps flexing. Her breath caught in her throat. She grabbed the counter, resisting the urge to run her fingers down his shoulders to where his muscles flexed. Slow down, Sista.
“Would you like something to drink?”
Glancing over his shoulder, he sent her a smile that shot straight to her core, forcing her to press her legs together, but it only intensified the sensation adding more wetness to her already soaked thong.

Excerpt Tuesday

This week I have Tory Michaels with me.


For eighty years since the Great Awakening, humans and non-humans have lived in relative peace together. The peace is threatened when three bodies turn up less than a mile from the Bureau of Non-Human Affairs in Tampa, all bearing the signature of vampires who once terrorized Europe.
The Bureau’s chief liaison to the vampires, Dara MacKechnie, learns that the Tampa victims are not alone when her ex-lover, and head of the vampire’s Great Council, Anthony Caldwell comes calling.
The pair discovers the lie that separated them two centuries ago only banked their passion, not extinguished it. Dara must decide whether she can trust Anthony with her heart a second time as they try to head off the war that threatens all they hold dear.


Instinct helped her draw back before she took more than she should. Dara sucked in air, trying to wipe away the addictive taste of him even while she absorbed the new details about his true nature.
    “Good lord,” she said against his throat. “Wow doesn’t seem quite adequate.” The exchange was bliss itself, but ultimately left her unfulfilled. Her body throbbed with it, and she felt the same need in him, rock-hard desire pressing up against her core through their clothes. Dara shifted, trying to alleviate the pressure trapped between her thighs.
    Anthony’s arm around her waist tightened, holding her still. He groaned, teeth grinding together. “I suggest, my pet, you stop moving if you wish me to remain a gentleman. There’s a reason exchanges take place during sex.”
    Her mouth fell open. Chris had mentioned something of that nature on more than one occasion. In for a penny, in for a pound, Dara reasoned. It would be better than walking away right then, knowing they wanted the same thing. Maybe a second night would quench the lust, and she could let go of the need, the hunger for him he created just by breathing.
    She shifted, straddling his lap to settle more firmly against the erection that bulged in his jeans and wrapped her arms around his neck. She felt reckless right then. A second night wouldn’t hurt anyone or anything. Dara found the notion liberating. “Do you really want me to stay still, Tony?”
    His dark eyes glittered with familiar intensity as he clutched her hips. His mouth curled up at one corner. “Don’t call me that.”
    “What?” She leaned forward and nuzzled the side of his neck, just above the tiny marks from where she had bitten him, and reached for the button on his jeans. “I don’t know. I rather like it. Sarah might be onto something with that. Tony Caldwell, man about town. Maybe I can convince you to like it.”
    Anthony groaned as she slid the zipper down, shifting back on the couch. “Unlikely, but you can always try to convince me. What do you propose to do?”
    Dara trailed her fingers just inside the waistband of his pants, toying with the firm flesh there. “I have an idea or two. It might be easier if you took your pants off though.”
    “Are you going to reciprocate?” He set her own her feet before standing, towering over her.
    She grinned up at him, easing the pants over his narrow hips until she could cup the rampant erection he sported. “Wasn’t planning on it quite yet.”
    He shucked the pants off the rest of the way, kicking them to one side. A heartbeat later, his shirt joined the heap on the floor. Dara leaned back to admire the gorgeous sight he made, standing there totally nude. Oh, to have her camera, take a picture to remember this night for the rest of her existence, long after they moved on. Broad shoulders, chiseled abs leading down to his waist, with only a faint sprinkling of body hair.
    She slowly circled him, trailing her fingertips over his middle, watching with delight as goosebumps rose in their wake.
    Anthony held up his hands, watching her as she paused in front of him, clearly debating her course of action. It was a bit of a role reversal, as he was well-used to having her naked while he remained clothed. But he was inclined to give her her head and see where she led. “Now what?”
    “Sit.” In that effort, she rested her hands, silky smooth and warm, on his chest to urge him down.
    Yes, he liked this more decisive, assertive woman. He cherished the memory of her innocence and enthusiasm, but he found it quite alluring, a woman who knew what she wanted. And clearly she wanted something beyond the obvious. He settled back on the couch, arms spread along the back. If he didn’t, he’d reach for her and end this now. Control, Anthony, control.
    His breath caught in his throat when she dropped to her knees between his legs and took him in her hands, stroked along his length. His world narrowed to just the two of them, everything not her fading rapidly as he thought only of the soft hands caressing him, something he’d long feared might never happen again. Anthony groaned. “You’re going to kill me, woman.”
    A tiny, teasing smile crossed her face. “La petite mort, yes. That’s certainly the idea,” she said, cupping his balls. Warm breath tickled the length of him as she spoke.
    His hands clenched into fists. He wouldn’t be able to take much of this, or he’d thoroughly disgrace himself by coming too soon. When she took him in her mouth, his eyes crossed. Gods, yes. If Odin himself popped in and offered to take him off to Valhalla, he would turn the god down in a heartbeat, just to stay like this. It’d been so long.
    Dara allowed herself a satisfied mental smile at his raspy growl and swirled her tongue around his cock, continuing to caress him. He’d never let her get away with calling him Tony, but it’d been an excellent segue to this.
    Her eyes closed as his fingers speared into her hair, massaging her scalp even as he slowed her pace.
    “Such a talented mouth, pet,” he said, tugging strands free from the braid trailing down her back. “I’ve miss this so damned much.”
    The words echoed round and round her head, and she hummed with satisfaction, drawing another long, tortured groan from him. And then voices from the past exploded from her subconscious, rough hands pulling at her. Such a good little pet. Dara choked.
    “No!” She fell back, scrabbling away on the floor. Voices pressed in on her, upper-crust British accents, laughter, and pain. The newly recovered memories dug their claws in, and she buried her face in her knees, trying to force them back.

I Was A Virgin Once Blog Hop

While this is so very true, I’m not going to be talking about what you might think. I do believe my husband would kill me if I told about my first time on my blog. *Turns to look over her shoulder, and making sure he’s not there.* Okay, so anyways back to business. Those of us in the Virgins Behaving Badly Anthology wanted to do a blog hop to get the word out about our book coming out this Friday March 16th.

Oh, yes, lets see, about my first time writing a sex scene. I remember it well; it was in a YA book I was attempting to write for my daughters to read. I had no plans for my hero and heroine to end up having sex on the couch and sure enough not having sex at all in the book. For goodness sake this was geared toward  kids my kids’ age. It wasn’t a bad sex scene at all and it was pretty hot for my first one if I say so myself, but it was so full of crap as well. I’ve come a long way since writing that scene.

That night after writing that scene, or was it during the day, oh hell I don’t remember at all not that really matters. I decided that I need to try my hand at romance for adults and not YA. Even once I moved to that genre my sex scenes weren’t tame. It seemed as if once I started writing towards getting published in the romance genre my sex scenes started getting so much hotter and open doors. It wasn’t until I started writing my debut book, Road to Recovery did I really let go, and let my characters tell me how the sex scene will go, and that’s when my sex scenes started scorching up the screen.

So, there you have it how I wrote my first sex scene and how they got hotter. I hope you’ll go and catch the others in the anthology, and see about their first time.

Oh, I almost forgot, before I give you a glimpse into my book in this. You can win a copy! All you have to do is blog, tweet, Facebook about this anthology, POST THE LINK where you did this in a comment, and you’re entered for a chance to win a copy of this fabulous anthology! Now make sure leave your email address, so I know how to contact you if you win. Make sure in your link to direct people to Evernight Publishing. You have until March 16 to get your name in the drawing.

Here’s a sneak peak at Her Seduction that’s in Virgins Behaving Badly Anthology.

Her Seduction Blurb
Laura Cox has been in love with her brother’s best friend Bailey Johnson since high school, but has kept her feelings to herself. Now that she’s finished with college and has moved back home with her brother, she’s got a plan. She’s never had sex, and she plans on changing that by seducing him into teaching her about being a submissive. The thing she never counted on was that he’s playing for keeps.

Adult Excerpt

“Yes, I’m ready.”
Pulling back, Bailey gazed at her for a moment. Her blue eyes showed hesitation, but desire burned deep within those eyes. He hoped he wouldn’t screw her up after all of this. Something told him she could handle it, that she could be the one for him.
“We need a safe word. Don’t make any mistake, I’m in charge once we cross over the doorway to the bedroom, but I never want you to feel unsafe with me. Before you use the word, make sure you’re in pain and not just discomfort.
She nodded. “Canes.”
He barely suppressed a laugh. He should have known she’d pick that, after all it was her favorite hockey team. “Okay, Canes it is. Strip.”
“Right here in the living room? Shouldn’t we go into the bedroom?”
“If I thought we needed to go in there, I would have told you to. You have five seconds to start stripping before you’re punished.”
Her eyes widened as she took in a sharp breath. The thought of being spanked excited her; he could tell. Her pupils dilated and he could smell her arousal. He’d bet anything that she was wet for him, and soon he planned on finding out just how wet. Laura hesitated for half a second before grabbing the hem of her tank top and pulling it over her head.
God, how he wanted to be the red lacy bra that held her lush breasts. More blood rushed to his cock, making it harder than it had ever been before. Quickly, she removed her bra, shorts and matching red thong.
“Good girl. Go into the bedroom. Get on the bed on your back, legs spread, so I can see that
sweet pussy of yours.”
He watched the way her hips swayed as she made her way to the bedroom. She climbed onto the bed and got into position. Uncertainty and arousal crossed her face. He reached into the nightstand and grabbed some handcuffs and ankle cuffs. “For this time only, if anything scares you, tell me and we’ll talk it through.”
* * * *
What had she been thinking of asking Bailey to dom her? Sure, she wanted to learn, but as he held the cuffs in his hand, she wondered if maybe she’d gotten in too deep for her first sexual experience to be this. Then another part was so turned on that she didn’t want to stop.
“Do you understand?”
He wanted her to say it. Excitement built in her stomach, ready to burst from the seams that this was about to happen. Ever since reading an erotic book, she’d fantasized about this, and with him being her first. “Yes, Sir.”
He leaned over her, his chest so close that she could feel the heat radiating off him. The only sound in the room was their breathing and the clicking of the cuffs in place. He trailed a hand between the valley of her breasts, slipping over the top, and rolled a nipple between his thumb and forefinger.
Anxiety gripped her like a vice, confusing her. When she had walked through the door she knew what she wanted, but now she wasn’t so sure. Deep down she still wanted to do this and see what it was like, and she wanted Bailey to be her first.What will my brother think? Have I lost my ever living mind? Both things kept swirling around her head until she felt dizzy.
“Breathe in with me.”
Panic flooded her body; maybe she’d gotten in over her head. Someway, somehow, the command in his voice calmed her, and she found herself doing as he told her. He pressed his forehead against hers and waited until she breathed in and out with him. The lines in his face softened as the panic went away; she relaxed into him.
“Good girl. Are you okay?”
“Yes, what?” he asked softly.

Please go and visit the other talented ladies in the Virgins Behaving Badly Anthology to see about their first time.

Six Sentence Sunday

This week’s six sentence comes from my book, Her Seduction that’s in the Virgins Behaving Badly Anthology coming out March 16. In this scene Bailey and Laura are in the pool.

He’d deal with whatever happened later. He had to be with her…now. They weren’t teens anymore. Pulling back, her eyes opened slowly but he couldn’t miss the darkened gaze.
“Wrap your legs around me,” he slid his hands to her hips but stopped.

Six Sentence Sunday

I’ve decided to continue with the same scene I had up a few weeks ago. Let’s check in on Katie and see what’s going on with her and the mystery man in her bedroom.

“Please, Kaden, let me up.”

His free palm roamed over her ass as it moved towards her back to her shirt. A moment later she heard something crash in the living room and her shirt ripped some more. Oh God, no, she couldn’t go through that! She’d rather die than to have him touch her again. His body lowered close to hers, and she could hear heavy breathing.
