BBT_GetOn_Banner

 

BLURB:

Only Mia Bartholomew could attend a body mod convention and end up at an illegal street race, running from the boys in blue. So what’s a hot-blooded Latina piercer to do? Jump on the first motorcycle out of there, that’s what. She’s got a career to think about, after all.

Of course, that motorcycle would have to belong to a crazy-cute ex-cop with a broken heart and a burning vendetta. Garrett Long’s former girlfriend was a casualty of his last case. He won’t rest until he punishes her murderer, a drug-running trust-fund kid with the DA in his pocket.

Garrett and Mia try to go their separate ways, but their animalistic attraction simply won’t fade. And the sex? Best. Ever. Though their fiery passion really couldn’t have picked a worse time to flare—Garrett’s target is upping his game, leaving him with a choice. Die for revenge? Or live for Mia?

A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Excerpt

Copyright Regina Cole and Ellora’s Cave Publishing.

 

“Come with me.”

 

She reached for him, then hesitated. “Really? Who are you?”

 

“I’m your ride out of here. Get on, the cops are coming.”

 

She glanced to her right, where the sirens were screaming louder than ever. He could even see the blue lights reflected in her eyes—a deep green, at his best guess in the flashing light. Her fists tightened at her sides, and when she took a deep breath, he was impressed with his fortitude, not even glancing at the way her cleavage swelled at the top of her burgundy neckline. Well, not glancing long, anyway.

 

“I hope I don’t regret this,” she said as she grabbed his hand.

 

He steadied her as she climbed onto the bike behind him. Her thighs gripped his and her hands locked around his midsection. He tensed his abdominal muscles and revved the bike’s engine. “Hold on tight.”

 

He kicked the bike into motion and they joined the flow of traffic. Garrett smiled at the feel of wind on his face and the feel of hot woman behind him. He was almost sorry he couldn’t see her now, that wild hair streaming behind them like a living flag. Her face was plastered against his back, and her thighs were clamped so hard against his that he couldn’t help but imagine what it’d be like to have her beneath him.

 

Maybe later, he thought with an evil grin, swerving into a gap between two cars, a gap almost too small for his bike. For now, they had to get the hell out of there without being arrested.

 

They tore off into the night, driving much too fast. Exactly how Garrett liked it.

Book Tour and #Giveaway: Rescued by the Buccaneer by Normandie Alleman @GoddessFish

VBT_RescuedByTheBuccaneer_Banner

Cover_Rescued by the BuccaneerBLURB:

When Frederica Beauchamp boards a ship for the Americas, she dreams of a life filled with adventure, but she gets more than she bargained for when her passenger ship is attacked by pirates. The heartless men kidnap her and force her to serve their captain—a fate that might be worse than death, since though he does not have his way with her, the captain delights in baring her, shaming her, and thrashing her bare bottom as punishment for every imagined disobedience.

After the pirates bring aboard an injured man found floating in the sea, Frederica tends to his wounds and learns that he is Gaston Galette, a survivor of a shipwrecked vessel. Gaston seeks her help to overthrow the vile captain, but when their plan goes awry he is forced to use all of his wiles to save them. As the naïve girl and the seasoned sailor navigate one perilous situation after another, he informs Frederica that the only way they can survive is if he is in command, and that if she thinks things can be otherwise, she will be taken over his knee for a bare bottom spanking.

As he watches the proud, willful Frederica bow to his authority, however, Gaston worries that her growing hold on his heart will be his downfall. He knows he cannot take a woman with him when he returns to his ship and crew, but when Frederica accepts his lustful dominance completely, submitting to him with grace and beauty no other woman could match, Gaston realizes that he may never be able to let her go.

Publisher’s Note: Rescued by the Buccaneer is the first book of the Pirates of the Jolie Rouge trilogy. It is an adventure and erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes including elements of BDSM and humiliation, and more.

dragonflyspacer2Excerpt

As he removed his shirt, she couldn’t help but notice his burnished skin rippled with muscles. His biceps bulged, and the planes of his stomach appeared to be carved with a knife. Long matted hair formed thin locks that fell past his shoulders, making him appear wild, yet with a hint of civility and charm. And rather handsome for a drowned bilge rat.

The man bowed dramatically at the waist. “Mademoiselle, I am Gaston Galette. Pleased to make your acquaintance.”

She nodded curtly. “You are French?”

“Oui, oui. Do you speak French?” he asked.

She shook her head no.

“A pity. The French language is exquisite—not unlike yourself.” He lifted an eyebrow flirtatiously.

She crossed her arms over her chest. “I see. My name is Frederica Beauchamp. My ancestors did speak French, but alas, I am only an Englishwoman. Is that the injury of which they speak?” She pointed at the red gash.

“Aye.”

“Let us find something to clean it with.” She nodded to Bradford.

Bradford escorted them to a small room below deck and brought a number of supplies, including turpentine, soapy water, rags, and bandages. He also gave Gaston a cup of grog to drink before excusing himself.

Gaston perched on a barrel against the wall. Frederica knelt beside him, dipping a rag into the bucket of soapy water.

“The sea water is a blessing and a curse. The brine cleanses the wound, but the water can introduce infection as well.” She laid her hand on his knee, causing him to jump.

She giggled. “Calm yourself. I haven’t done anything yet.” Then she poured a cupful of the turpentine into the cut. He winced as the antiseptic permeated the broken skin.

“You know what you’re doing?” he asked, his voice strained.

“My father was a physician. I picked up a few things.”

“Now what is a physician’s daughter doing sailing the ocean with this motley crew of scallywags?” His dark eye twinkled.

“Long story,” she said, wiping the wound with the rag.

He leaned back and set his feet up on another barrel. “I’ve got nothing but time, Princess.”

Ignoring him, she asked, “What happened to your eye?”

“Wood splinter. Canon fire can be a nasty business. Here,” he said reaching for the rag. “I’d like to cleanse it.” He lifted the patch away from his eye, at the same time shielding Frederica from seeing the site of the eye injury and dabbed at it, squeezing the rag until soapy water dripped down and dribbled off his well-trimmed beard.

“I’m supposed to do that,” she said.

He smiled and handed her back the rag. “You may finish up, my dear.”

“What makes you think you can call me that?” She pushed back, hands settling on her hips.

He sighed as if he found her tiresome. “I just did, didn’t I?”

She folded her arms and gave him a dirty look. “I’m not your dear,” she said through gritted teeth. “You may call me Frederica or Miss Beauchamp.”

“I see. And how did you come to join a pirate crew, Frederica?”

She softened. “I’m not a member of the crew. I am their prisoner, taken on my way to the colonies.”

“Taken? So that’s how you wound up with this scurrilous crew.”

“I was aboard the passenger ship, the Adelaide, when Captain Humphrey and his men attacked us.” The corners of her mouth fell.

“What happened?”

“They stole everything of value, then killed everyone.” She shrugged at the senseless loss of life and dropped her eyes to the floor.

“How did you escape?”

“Captain Humphrey took me as his prisoner.”

Interview and #Giveaway: Hungry Heart by Meg Benjamin ~ @megbenj1 @GoddessFish

VBT_HungryHeart_Bannerdragonflyspacer2

Cover_HungryHeartBLURB:

Peace, love, and barbecue—with a big order of sexy on the side.

Sous chef Darcy Cunningham is less than entranced with small-town Konigsburg’s obsession with barbecue. But her future career as a chef de cuisine requires expanding her culinary horizons, so she talks the Barbecue King, a.k.a. Harris Temple, into taking her on as his apprentice.

However, learning Harris’s professional secrets wasn’t supposed to include falling for his spicy blend of smoky sexiness and laid-back charm.

Chico Burnside specializes in flying under Konigsburg’s small-town radar, but lately life has been going a little too smoothly, even for him. Hoping to shake things up a bit, he talks Harris into teaming up for Konigsburg’s first barbecue cook-off. But once shy scientist Andy Wells catches his eye, Chico’s got more on his mind than brisket. Like enticing her out of her shell to show her just how tenderly a big guy can love.

As the competition ignites, so does the romance. Until a natural disaster threatens to derail Konigsburg’s dream team before the grills even get good and warmed up.

 

interview2

Hi. Welcome to All I Want and More. We’re glad to have you here.

 Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Glad to! I’ve been publishing for around five years now with Samhain and with Berkley Intermix. My books with Samhain are all part of my Konigsburg, Texas, series (Hungry Heart is number eight), but they’re stand alones that can be read in any order. After twenty-plus years in San Antonio, my hubs and I moved to Colorado five years ago, and I really love it. I’m writing full time and enjoying my forays into the mountains.

 

In this book, who was your favorite character to write and why?

Well, I love all four characters (two heroes and two heroines), but if pressed, I’d have to say Chico Burnside is probably my favorite. He’s been a secondary character in several of the Konigsburg books, but I always felt like he had a story to tell. He’s a bouncer at a tavern in Konigsburg, but he’s got a lot of hidden depths, and he falls for a very unlikely woman—a shy scientist who’s the last person you’d expect to date a former professional wrestler. I had a lot of fun figuring out his story and finding a heroine who was worthy of him.

 

What 3 words would you use to describe your main characters?

Determined, snarky, barbecue-loving

 

Can you tell us a little bit about this book? Maybe a little snippet?

It’s all about barbecue. My heroes and heroines end up forming a barbecue team to compete in Konigsburg’s first-ever barbecue contest. Two of them are professional cooks—Darcy Cunningham and her true love Harris Temple (a.k.a. the Barbecue King)—while the other two—Chico and his true love Andy Wells—are enthusiastic amateurs. But before they can get to the contest they’re hit with a natural disaster that changes everything for them. Here’s a quick bit with Darcy and Harris (after they’ve done the deed for the first time):

 

“That was…memorable. Really memorable.” She blew out a warm breath against his chest as his muscles relaxed.

“Well, sweetheart,” he murmured. “They don’t call me the King for nothing.”

That time she did punch him.

 

How do you go about picking character names? Do you have to get them just right and make sure they fit with the characters personality?

Three of my four characters appeared in other books so I didn’t change their names (and frankly, in those other books the names just came to me). I really wanted to refer to Harris as the Barbecue King all the way through the book because I just loved it, but cooler heads (i.e., my editor) prevailed. I usually don’t agonize over the names too much, although I’ve occasionally changed them when I realized the name just didn’t fit the character.

 

We’re cover hussies..What was your first impression of this cover?

I loved it. No kidding. The woman looks just like my description of Darcy and the background looks like the Texas Hill Country where the story takes place. Sometimes I’ve had to ask for changes in the first version of a cover, but Angela Waters got this just right.

 

What does writing mean to you?

It’s what my life has revolved around for the past five years. I’ve always wanted to write (and to publish), but sometimes I couldn’t believe it would ever happen. It’s so exciting that it did!

 

What do you hope readers take away after reading one of your books?

I hope they have a good time and meet some characters they enjoy spending time with. There’s nothing worse than reading a book where the characters annoy you or where they seem weak in some way. I really want people to come to the end and miss the people they’ve been reading about.

 

If you had a technology free day, what would you do?

Possibly go nuts! But in reality, I’d probably grab a print book and spend the day getting caught up.

 

What are you currently working on?

I’m working on a couple of trilogies set in Colorado. I love Texas and I love writing about it, but Colorado is such a great place. I’d love to set some stories here too.

 

Quickie Time

Sexiest feature on a man? Hands and forearms, oddly enough.

Boxers, Briefs or Commando? Briefs please.

What is on your night stand/dresser? Books, bookmarks, a reading lamp, and lip balm (everybody in Colorado keeps lip balm stashed in every room).

Hairy chests or smooth? Hairy

Cowboy or businessman? Depends on the business. Some are sexier than others.

Tattoos or piercings? Another case of it depends. Pierced ears are cool. Pierced lips and noses, not so much.

Secret talent? I’m a good cook and I like doing it

What’s your guilty pleasure? Watching Scandal, which I do while the hubs plays racquetball

Celebrity crush? Timothy Olyphant. Sigh.

Heels or flats? Flats. I spent too many years throwing my back out with heels.

Night owl or early bird? Early bird, although I’d really rather be a night owl

Twitter or Facebook? Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/meg.benjamin1)

Pinterest or Instagram? I’m a Pinterest junkie (http://www.pinterest.com/megbenjamin/)

ebooks or paperbacks? Um…both? I don’t think one rules out the other

 

Is there anything else you like to add?

Thanks so much for hosting me. I enjoyed it!

dragonflyspacer2Excerpt

He leaned forward slowly, maybe giving her a chance to run. A chance she wasn’t going to take. His lips brushed hers, lightly, as his hands cupped her face. He rubbed his thumbs across her cheekbones, dark eyes watching her carefully.

The flecks of green had deepened, making his eyes even darker now. She leaned forward, placing her hands on his shoulders, bringing her mouth against his more firmly. The contact seemed to send an arrow of heat through her body, making her nipples ache, her pulse warm again.

His mouth opened against hers and she let him inside, rubbing her tongue against his, feeling it rasp against her teeth. She sucked his lower lip for a moment, nipping him lightly, hearing the catch in his breath.

His hands dropped to her breasts, cupping, then rubbing them, his palms brushing her nipples to hard points. She felt cool air against her back as he pushed her shirt up, his fingers fumbling with the catch on her bra. His lips drifted down the side of her throat, leaving a trail of heat as he did.

She pushed his shirt up, running her fingers through the slight dusting of hair across his chest, then down along the ripple of muscle over his stomach.

His hands cupped her breasts, pushing the bra aside. He leaned down, taking one nipple into his mouth, sucking, his tongue laving the aching peak.

Somewhere behind them something beeped loudly. Porky came awake with a woof.

“Shit.” His hands dropped to her hips, his forehead pressed against her breasts. “Shit. Fuck. Goddamn.”

“Timer’s beeping,” she muttered. “And Porky’s awake.”

He nodded, his forehead still resting on her collarbone.

“Fire’s ready. And you’re behind with the meat as it is.”

He raised his head to look at her. “I didn’t plan this.”

“I know.” She wasn’t entirely sure what he meant—the timing with the meat or the timing with the two of them. She brushed a hand across his cheek, pushing his hair back from his face.

“I don’t want to stop.”

“I don’t either.” She slid back a few inches, moving her hands to his shoulders. “But like you once said, barbecue waits for no man.”

Book Blast and Amazon GC #Giveaway :The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire by @coraseton~ @GoddessFish

SBB-COWBOYS-OF-CHANCE-CREEK-BANNER

dragonflyspacer2BLURB:

Bella Chatham will lose everything – her veterinary practice, her animal shelter, and even her home – if she can’t find another source of income, fast. So when her best friend signs her up for the hot new reality television show, Can You Beat a Billionaire, Bella accepts the challenge and hopes against hope she can win the ten million dollar prize. If she doesn’t, it’s bye-bye pet clinic and shelter, bye-bye Chance Creek, Montana, and hello to marriage to the billionaire for a year!

Evan Mortimer, billionaire, can’t believe he’s reduced to competing in a television contest to win a wife. Unfortunately, it’s the only foolproof way to secure his position as head of Mortimer Innovations. At least he’ll be able to dump his “spouse” at the end of the year; he’s much too busy to be tied down to a country bumpkin cowgirl.

Bella doesn’t expect her adversary to be handsome – or funny, or compassionate – but Evan’s all three, and he’s proving a tough competitor, too. When they end up sharing a tent – and a sleeping-bag – her body betrays her with a longing so deep it cuts her to the core. Still, this cowgirl must stay strong. If Evan uncovers her secret fears, he’ll use them to win the contest – and then he’ll own her for a year. She’ll be out of luck, out of cash, and stuck being Mrs. Mortimer until he kicks her to the curb. Too bad she can’t decide which is worse – winning the show and losing Evan forever, or losing the show and only being his temporary wife.

Evan can’t believe he’s falling for the one woman who doesn’t want him. This cowgirl’s not impressed by his money, his name, or his inability to sleep in a tent with her for an entire night, but every look and touch she gives him sends his desire through the roof. With a director determined to use his claustrophobia to make him look like a fool, and an adversary so sexy he can hardly see straight, he’ll need all his savvy to come out on top. Too bad he’s going to lose no matter how this show turns out. If he beats Bella, he’ll destroy the first woman he’s ever loved. If he doesn’t beat her, it’s bye-bye Mortimer Innovations.

Will either of them remember in time that it’s not who wins or who loses – it’s how they play the game that really counts?

Excerpt

A golden-haired beauty stared back at him. Well, maybe beauty was too strong a word. She was fresh, wholesome, wore little makeup that he could see. She stood in a yard filled with large enclosures, surrounded by dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals. She held a puppy in her arms that was obviously squirming and she was laughing—all bright eyes, thick, wavy hair, legs that went on for a mile, and a cowboy hat perched atop her head. She could be the poster child for middle-America—a healthy, happy, well-adjusted country girl.

His total opposite.

He’d never dated anyone like her, not that he’d dated much. When your family was worth billions a certain amount of suspicion crept into your personality. His mother, especially, thought they were surrounded by vultures ready to rip them apart at the slightest sign of weakness. She’d practically hand-picked Nate’s wife from the children of her small circle of friends. While Nate and Brenda seemed happy enough, Evan had no interest in marriage to a woman like that.

His own attempts at dating had been disastrous. A few girls back in college who made it clear they expected a steady stream of expensive gifts, and called him cheap when they weren’t forthcoming. Several more women in his twenties who didn’t mention money at all, but talked frequently of their friends’ impending weddings, all the while shooting him furtive looks from gleaming eyes that he swore held the reflection of dollar signs.

He never got past a few weeks of dinners, dancing and trips to museums or concerts before he broke it off. A constricting feeling would build in his chest until the idea of seeing them again made him physically ill. He was ashamed to admit he broke up with most of those women over the phone, several by texting, but that feeling of being caught—of being trussed up with no way to escape… He couldn’t bear it, and couldn’t take the risk that if he met with them in person, he’d end up running away.

That had happened once—only once—but he’d never forget it, and he’d never put himself in that position again.

He shook his head and dragged his thoughts back to the present. His money was a blessing. No way Evan would feel sorry for himself because it hampered normal relationships.

Bella was nothing like the sophisticated, calculating women who’d given him so much trouble in the past. He’d have no problem keeping her at arm’s length and controlling the outcome of the show.

She’d do fine for his wife.

Just fine.

Interview and #Giveaway: Teach Me by Cassandra Dean ~ @GoddessFish @authorCassDean

NBtM_TeachMe_BannerCover_Teach Me

BLURB:

Ever curious, Elizabeth, Viscountess Rocksley, has turned her curiosity to erotic pleasure. Three years a widow, she boldly employs the madam of a brothel for guidance but never had she expected her education to be conducted by a coldly handsome peer of the realm.

To the Earl of Malvern, the erotic tutelage of a skittish widow is little more than sport, however the woman he teaches is far from the mouse he expects. With her sly humor and insistent joy, Elizabeth obliterates all his expectations and he, unwillingly fascinated, can’t prevent his fall. Each more intrigued than they are willing to admit, Elizabeth and Malvern embark upon a tutelage that will challenge them, change them, come to mean everything to them…until a heartbreaking betrayal threatens to tear them apart forever.

dragonflyspacer2interview2

Hi Cassandra, Welcome to All I Want and More books

Tell us a little about your book?

Sure thing! TEACH ME is the tale of a widow curious about passion and the dissolute earl who teaches her. Slowly, they grow closer until distrust and fear tear them apart…

 

How much emotion does it take from you to write?

In order to tell the story, you have to put yourself in the place of the characters. When they cry, you cry. When they’re angry, you’re angry. When they’re joyous, you’re joyous. Hopefully, that comes through in TEACH ME!

 

What is your favorite part of the book?

The epilogue. It was the first scene that popped into my head and started the whole thing!

 

You can only pick 3 words to describe your main characters..what would they be?

Elizabeth – curious, joyful, cheeky. Malvern – remote, controlled, sensitive.

 

Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?

Elizabeth and Malvern were both the easiest and the hardest. TEACH ME was actually the first full-length novel I completed and it was a real challenge and learning curve to make the characters fully fleshed and dynamic. However, it was also enormously rewarding when I finished the book and realised how much I loved those guys. Seriously, I think they’re my favourite of the characters I’ve created!

 

What are you currently working on?

The third in my Silk Series, SILK & SCARS, as well as a take on Sleeping Beauty for a new Decadent Publishing line.

 

Do you have anything due to release soon?

No, unfortunately. Real Life has intruded upon my writing schedule and I find myself a bit behind. However, things are starting to settle down and I hope to be back on track real soon.

 

What’s one thing that you enjoy about writing?

Hmm, how to narrow it to only one! I love getting the ideas in my head down on the page and then sharing those ideas with others.

 

Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of your cover?

I thought it was gorgeous. I’m so lucky with my covers, they’re all lovely.

 

What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?

This is kind of disloyal, but I must admit I prefer paperbacks. there’s nothing quite like the feeling of holding a book in your hands.

 

Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?

I really would like to try my hand at fantasy but the intricate worldbuilding necessary for such a thing is a little daunting. However, I’m determined to try!

 

Okay…. personal time!!!!

What is on your night stand/dresser?

Nothing too exciting, unfortunately. An alarm clock. An old red desk phone. That’s it!

 What are you listening to right now?

I’ve just rediscovered a band I LOVED years ago called Machine Gun Fellatio. Yup, they were a bit risque. They broke up a while back but they had such fantastic songs. A real shame they’re no longer together.

What are you reading right now?

Just finished reading ( and re-reading!) The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison. It was super awesome. Can’t believe the last book in the series (The Hollows) will be here this year! Sad face and stuff.

 What is your favorite season?

Winter. Love the sound of rain outside with the heater on while snuggled under a blanket.

 Favorite holiday?

I went to Europe for three months a few years back and it was the best holiday. I can’t wait to return one day, hopefully in the near future.

 And what has been your best b-day present ever?

My best birthday present was actually a surprise birthday party my friend threw for me! I had NO idea she had organised this, none whatsoever, and she’d organised it at a really low time in my life. It was a lovely, lovely thing for her to do and it still makes me smile to this day.

 

Hard and Quick Time!

Think fast….

Are you a quickie kind girl? Yep (quick answer, heh)

Dark or Milk Chocolate? Dark

Whipped or Melted? Melted

Straight up or with a twist – sex? Is that a drink? Is the twist one of lime??

What’s ur fave drink – in a glass or on him? I’ll take Gin & Tonic however I can get it!

Junk or Health Food? Love a bit of healthy stuff, especially fresh vegetables cooked to perfection.

Ties or Chains? Neither – willpower is the best, I reckon

Leather or Lace? Love lacy things. LOVE THEM.

Soft or Hard… Bed, where was your mind? I like a firm…mattress

Control or Be Controlled? Robots, right? We’re talking about robots?

Hot Wax or Whip Cream? Are these wrestler names?

Vampire or Werewolf? SUCH a vampire girl…Gosh, I’m kind of scared what that says about me…

Twitter and/or Facebook? Facebook – I’m too verbose for Twitter

Pinterest or not? Definitely fun times with Pintrest!

dragonflyspacer2Excerpt

“I haven’t actually kissed that many men, so I was wondering if we could experiment. With kissing.” She looked at him, all that was expectant and eager. “What do you think?”

Malvern didn’t hasten to reply, much needed clarity arriving with her request. She wanted to kiss? Innocently kiss when he could instead pull down that thrice-damned bodice and encase her nipple with the wet heat of his mouth? Kissing was the appetizer to a meal, not the main course. But how was she to learn if he didn’t show her the error of her ways? “If you feel it will benefit your education, by all means, we should undertake it.”

Her brow creased, and he knew she wondered at his words. And then, she smiled.

Such a smile should not be so radiant. His heart, disturbingly, started to pound.

“Excellent.” She came toward him and, with little more than a soft touch, coaxed him to his feet. “So, how should we proceed?” Her gaze wandered to his mouth.

He ignored the rush in his ears. “Start, and if you require any instruction, I shall provide it.”

She nodded, her gaze still on his mouth. Her hand curled around the back of his neck and, lifting herself onto her toes, she touched her lips to his.

He restrained the shudder that threatened at her touch. Bloody hell, such a reaction was absurd. Slowly, she brushed her soft mouth against his, her lips parted, her breath whispering over him. His already laboring heart grew worse, setting his blood to thrum through his veins.

The response was incommensurate to such a pedestrian embrace. Remaining still, he fought to give lie to his reaction, to pretend she had not just reduced him to a green boy with nothing more than her lips upon his.

Blurb Blitz and #Giveaway: Cooking Up a Seduction by Jenna Bayley-Burke ~ @GoddessFish

BB_CookingUpASeduction_Bannerdragonflyspacer2

Cover_Cooking Up A SeductionBLURB:

Love never tasted so sweet…

Sexy venture capitalist Cameron Price takes the helm of the Seattle branch of the firm to prove he has what it takes to lead the entire company. Unfortunately, his boss thinks what it takes for a workaholic like Cam is a wife!

To fend off the matrimonally inclined, Cameron has to think fast. Inspired by the dazzling green eyes of the gorgeous caterer, he proposes the kind of innovative arrangement he’s known for. If Lauren Brody will spend a few weeks on his arm networking at events, she’ll be able to raise the profile of Come For Dinner catering and book more clients than she ever dreamed.

But Lauren has a plan of her own and tempts Cameron to play along. She convinces Mr. Buttoned-Up-Tight they can have some serious fun on his piano, in his kitchen, and behind closed doors. But it’s dangerous to keep a lid on something so hot. And a relationship was never on Cameron’s agenda…

WARNING :: Indulge at your own risk! Cravings for exotic fruit, decadent delights, erotic fashion & steaming hot nights of pleasure have been reported.

 

Excerpt

City lights twinkled from the floor-to-ceiling bay window. He could even hear the buzz of bustling city. She’d used more color than he’d ever thought to, blending deep red curtains with burnt orange chairs, natural wood floors and splashes of bright green in the pillows and throws on the brown chaise. From the granite countertops of her small kitchen, to the dark glass pendant lighting, everything was contemporary, yet casual. Perfectly Lauren.

“You like?” she asked, standing behind as she pulled his coat from his shoulders. He shrugged it off and turned around to face her.

“I like you.” He slid his fingers through her silken hair, tilting her head to the perfect angle.

“Good answer.” She gripped his tie, pulling him closer, but that was the last bit of control he allowed her.

He took possession of her lips. Her gasp told him his kiss was harder, more demanding than she expected, but since she followed it up with a moan as he deftly slipped her coat from her shoulders and slid his hands beneath her sweater to touch her soft, smooth skin, he knew she didn’t mind.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and returned the kiss with a passion that made his mind thrum with possibilities. She’d allow him anything, offered her body for his enjoyment, only asking satisfaction in return. And since he intended to explore her body fully, indulging every urge he’d stifled, that would be his pleasure.

He slid his mouth over her lips, to her jaw, nibbling at her neck, nipping at her earlobe. Everywhere he went she rewarded him with soft whimpers and breathy sighs. Her fingers pressed against his scalp as she held his head to her, her other hand struggling with the buttons on his shirt.

“Too many clothes.” Her throaty whisper made him grin.

He released her and pulled back, locking their gazes as he undid the knot in his tie. She pulled at the end, removing it in a whoosh as he set to work on the buttons of his shirt. With a naughty gleam in her eye she wrapped the ends of the tie in each hand and pulled it taut. The corner of her bottom lip disappeared between her teeth.

Cameron shook his head. “No way. I’m using my hands tonight.”

“I was thinking for me. I don’t know how much more foreplay I can take before I knock you to the ground and have my way with you.” She stepped closer, placing the tie in his hands. “This way I’d have to take it. Make me wait, Cameron.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

College confused me. I went in determined to become an orthopedic surgeon, and came out with a triple major – Psychology, Religious Studies, AuthorPicand English. Thank goodness organic chemistry mystified me, or my life might have turned out completely different. Or not. I always wanted to write, it just seemed like a far away goal – a someday not a today.

After managing department stores and executive recruiting, I got lucky and had my first of three children. After two years of fertility treatments, I wanted to be with him as much as I could and opted to stay home. I started writing then, and developing recipes for magazines like Cooking Light and Better Homes & Gardens.

After my second son was born I had a health crisis, and as I lay in the ER I worried about what my boys would make of the things I’d left behind. Stories started and never finished, notes on novels never written, not to mention the rolls of film I’d yet to develop and put in albums. Grateful for life and high on pain meds, I was making some brave decisions. Like writing a book in a month for National Novel Writers Month (NaNoWriMo).

That book (after much editing) became my first romance novel, JUST ONE SPARK, published by Mills & Boon in 2006. COOKING UP A STORM followed, as have a series of single-title romances from Samhain Publishing (HER CINDERELLA COMPLEX, PAR FOR THE COURSE, COMPROMISING POSITIONS, PRIDE & PASSION, PRIVATE SCANDAL, FOR KICKS, and DRIVE ME CRAZY).

COMPROMISING POSITIONS will always hold a special place in my heart, not because it sat atop the Amazon Bestseller list for two weeks, but because it was the story I was writing when I got sick, the half-finished book I worried my boys would find and wonder why I hadn’t completed it. Nothing compares to showing my kids that when you have a dream you chase it, catch it, hold on with both hands, and never let go.

Scarlett Buck has always been flaky in comparison to her sensible twin sister Tara, so nobody is really surprised when Scarlett spends all her money on a one way ticket to Australia to be with the man she’s met on the Net. But she hasn’t reckoned on the guy already being married, or her mom getting sick, and now she needs money for a flight home to Marietta, MT—quick. Signing on with Bella’s Belles in Kalgoorlie isn’t be the proudest moment in her life but it will get her home fast. After all, it’s just sex.

Or is it?

Mitch Bannister’s ex is about to marry his best friend, and he could really do with a cold beer and a hot woman. But the cowgirl he takes a shine to at Bella’s is surprisingly skittish, and in the end he leaves without hooking up.

Later, when Mitch spies the cowgirl in the local pub begging for a job, he shrinks into the shadows–he’s not looking for complications, and something tells him that Scarlett Buck is a whole handful of them. But soon it’s clear she’s not just trouble, she’s in trouble, and like it or not, he’s not about to turn his back on this stray from the States. Especially if she can do him a favor in return. After all, it’s just a helping hand.

Or is it?

Now enjoy an excerpt:

They had Chinese food in a restaurant nearby, honey shrimp—except they were called prawns here—and crispy duck with fried rice washed down with an almost local Margaret River white wine. The food was small-town Chinese restaurant good, and Mitch talked about his fly-in fly-out job at the mines, about the fourteen day shifts filled with twelve hour work days and big meals in the mess and maybe a swim before bed and then getting up the next day to do it all over again. Scarlett listened and crunched shrimp tails between her teeth and sucked honey off her fingers and thought that maybe it wasn’t such a crazy idea that she’d come to Australia after all, or she would never have known about any of this kind of lifestyle.

Or more importantly, that otherwise she would never have met Mitch. Maybe she should send Travis a thank-you postcard from Broome? She was halfway tempted.

And Mitch watched a woman who could follow his every word and ask questions while eating with gusto and relish and who wasn’t afraid to get her fingers dirty in the process. And he liked it. A lot.

When she licked her fingers clean, he wished she’d offered them to him first.

And then he smacked his lustful thoughts down hard. He was trying to help her out. Offer her a solution to her problems, so that whatever was bothering her would disappear.

At least, that had been his intention.

Now that she was coming with him to Broome he wasn’t so sure of his motives. She was fun. A breath of fresh air into his highly regulated existence. A temporary cowgirl for a short-term problem.

And while sex wasn’t part of their deal, that didn’t mean he wouldn’t welcome it if it happened. He wasn’t looking for commitment but where was the risk? She was going home in a few days. And they were going to be sharing a villa after all. Sure, it was a big villa. Loads of space for two.

Loads and loads of space.

And one really big bed.

Haleigh’s Ink by @JenniferKacey ~ Interview and #Giveaway ~ @GoddessFish

VBT_HaleighsInk_Banner

Cover_Haleigh's Ink

BLURB:

Members Only, Book Two

Ink.

A three-lettered word that means different things to many people. Pictures and words that might stand as a reminder of love, loss, rebellion, or camaraderie. For Haleigh Grace, it meant freedom.

Walking through the doors of the tattoo parlor, Inkfluence, marked the start of taking her life back. Making it what she wanted it to be. No one was going to tell her she couldn’t. Not ever again.

Little did she know that behind those doors stood Kyle Muse. He was her best friend, who had walked away years ago without a backwards glance. The one man she fantasized would someday be her knight in shining armor. The one she saved herself for.

But, he has a knight of his own. Tall, dark, and dangerously sexy, Scott Preston. The owner of the very shop Haleigh has an appointment with at midnight.

Feelings long buried rise to the surface and the three find themselves bound by more than just ink…

A Romantica® ménage BDSM erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Hi Jennifer. Welome to All I Want and More

Tell us a little about your book?

It’s an MMF Menage between three VERY unlikely people. It has some not-so-unrequited love, a breast cancer survivor, a tattoo shop, nipple piercings, MM, FF and a whole lot in between. It’s all about finding who you are and LOVING IT!!!

 

How much emotion does it take from you to write?

For this book? A LOT! It’s very personal for me because of who the heroine is based off of. Some books are just fun and sexy, and intriguing to write, but this one is incredibly special to me and made me very emotional.

 

What is your favorite part of the book?

The last scene on the main stage in The Library. It’s…just…wow.

 

You can only pick 3 words to describe your main characters, what would they be? 

At the beginning of the book I’d say lost, challenging and fighters. At the end I’d say found, accepting and bound.

 

Which was the easiest character to write and the hardest ~ and why?

Haleigh was the easiest by far. I just got her from the very beginning. There’s a lot of me in her. The hardest was probably Scott. He’s such an asshole to start with that I didn’t know if I could turn it around to make him lovable. I’m incredibly pleased with how he grew in the book.

 

VBT_HaleighsInk_CoverBannerHow many books are you shooting for in this series?

I’m contracted for 12 right now and have a self pub, Duke’s Valentine in there too. I keep adding more though. It’s a great place to write in.

 

What are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on a short story self-pub titled Accidental Voyeur. Just a cute little sexy addition for The Library. As soon as I’m done with that one this week I’m moving onto Jenna’s Consent. The next big book in the series. Can’t WAIT TO FINISH THAT ONE!!!

 

Do you have anything due to release soon?

I’m in edits for Orgasm University (medical fetish BDSM), Nico’s Curse (BDSM with Paranormal Elements) and Buried Permission (FF Hypnosis story). All should be out pretty quick!!

 

What’s one thing that you enjoy about writing?

It keeps me out of trouble…mostly.

 

Since we’re cover hussies….what was your first impression of your cover?

I wanted to cry because it was so perfect. It was Haleigh – in her strength and her vulnerability and beauty. Truly perfect.

 

What do you prefer ebooks or paperbacks?

ebooks. I can carry hundreds of books with me on my kindle. That is so sexy!

 

Is there a genre you would like to write but are a little apprehensive to try?

Paranormal I think. People love it but it has to be extremely well written and an amazing storyline. I won’t write it until I can do it justice. Plus I want a paranormal world that’s all mine and not just a spin-off of someone else’s series.

 

Okay…. personal time!!!! Oh yeah, I go there… Hahah… If you thought you were safe… Nah… Forgot it… Not a chance! We will start off slow and easy, I promise!

What is on your night stand/dresser? – Lamp, noise machine, coaster, clock, remote light switch, and my glasses in about two seconds when I finally crash.

What are you listening to you right now? – Maroon Five – One More Night (Love them!!)

What are you reading right now? – I just got through reading all of my RITA novels as a judge so I’ve switched over to The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie. Trying to broaden my romantic reading horizons.

What is your favorite season? Holiday? – Christmas. It’s just magical. Amazing seeing it through my son’s eyes too. Love being on both sides of the same coin.

And what has been your best b-day present ever? – A jewelry cabinet from my husband and son. It rocks!

 

 

Quickie time… Think fast….

Are you a quickie kind girl? – Absolutely yes. Spontaneity is awesome. A scene doesn’t have to be elaborate and complicated. Quick is awesome too!

Dark or Milk Chocolate? – Dark

Whipped or Melted? – Whipped…I’m a BDSM girl.

Straight up or with a twist – sex? – TWIST

What’s ur fave drink – in a glass or on him? – Current favorite is Chai tea with whipped cream. So yum! On him sounds wonderful!

Spank or Flogger? – Spank – more personal.

Junk or Health Food? – Health. I have food allergies so I’m pretty darn careful with what I eat.

Ties or Chains? – Hmm…that’s hard. I’m going to go with ties tonight.

Leather or Lace? – Yes J

Soft or Hard… Bed, where was your mind? – Hard. I’m a tummy sleeper so if the bed’s too soft my back hurts in the morning.

Control or Be Controlled? – Be controlled.

Hot Wax or Whip Cream? – Whip Cream…on him.

Vampire or Werewolf? – Vampire. I’d rather be bitten then have to deal with hair in my mouth. Blah!

Twitter and/or Facebook? – Facebook all the way.

Pinterest or not? – I’m completely addicted!

EXCERPT:

It was the hottest kiss she’d ever seen in real life. Tongues, teeth and suction used to leave marks jacked up her heart rate, making her light-headed. It was an hors d’oeuvre to what came later. A prelude to hot, sweaty sex and orgasms they’d need a fire hose to extinguish.

Her nipples beaded beneath her padded bra. Scott tugged Kyle’s head aside. He bit him roughly beneath his ear, making Kyle groan in pleasure while kneading Scott’s waist. She groaned with him when his hand dug beneath Scott’s t-shirt to touch him skin to skin. Her entire body jumped from mildly aroused to a blazing inferno of need she didn’t understand when Scott kissed him again. Slick moisture coated the folds of her sex as their bodies met.

Seeing them, feeling the tension radiate from them, it awakened something buried within her she was unable to ignore. They were sirens calling to her, drawing her in.

She moaned again and gripped the counter to steady her legs. She didn’t remember moving closer. She couldn’t concentrate on anything but seeing them together.

Kyle’s lip slid from between his lover’s teeth. Before she stifled it, another moan slipped out.

Scott glared at her for interrupting and she quickly glanced at Kyle. His gaze remained unfocused for a few beats of her heart, and then dread transformed his visage. His eyelids grew wide with something akin to fear, breaking her heart.

“Haleigh?” he croaked.

What a bride wants…

Ella Grace Emerson adores her father, but he keeps trying to marry her off to every eligible rancher in Montana. When he puts an ad in the paper on her behalf – for a docile house-husband – Ella retaliates with one of her own, pinned to the noticeboard of the local saloon. No husband required, housebroken or otherwise. What she wants is the perfect lover.

What a bride needs…

Newcomer Cam Sawyer is perfectly willing to tear up the sheets with Ella and be her partner in chaos. She wants a bad boy and he’s had experience aplenty. But what she really needs is a strong and loving partner, and until Sawyer stops running from his past he can never be that.

Sawyer’s the one Ella wants. But can he be the man she needs?

dragonflyspacer2

Now enjoy an excerpt:

“Yes, I know he’s perfectly presentable and possibly a very nice person. Second-born son from a good ranching family. All good things. It’s just that when he looks at me he sees Emerson Holdings and award-winning bloodlines – money on the hoof. He doesn’t see me.”

Ella Grace Emerson leaned against the walnut desk and watched with fond exasperation as her father paced the length of his study. He stopped and stooped to add another block of wood to the fire that sat snug within the stonework of the study’s western wall. A huge picture window took up most of another wall and in the distance loomed the soaring, snow-clad Crazy Mountains of Montana.

The charity dinner they’d just returned from had dragged on late into the evening. They’d been seated at a table of eight that had included Joe Carter and his middle son Max, and the blatant matchmaking efforts of both fathers had been enough to set Ella’s teeth on edge.

Max’s half-baked interest in her good-self had done the rest.

“It was worth a try,” her father argued. “You and Max have similar social status, similar interests. It could have worked well.”

“That’s what you always say. And it never does. Daddy, I am not a cow to be bred. You need to let me find my own man.”

“But you don’t.” Samuel T. Emerson threw up his hands.

Kelly now lives in Australia, surrounded by lush farmland and family, 2 dogs, 3 miniature cows, a miniature pig, a 3-legged cat and a small flock of curious chickens. There are still flies, but their maggots don’t feed on flesh. Bargain.

Stephanie is almost forty and her life hasn’t turned out the way she planned. That doesn’t mean she’s ready to give up and wallow in her misfortunes. She has fantasies, wild fantasies and she decides it’s time to make them come true. Lucky for Stephanie, she has four hot tenants that are anxious to satisfy her needs.

It was supposed to be one night of pleasure. Mark soon realizes he can’t get enough of his landlord, Stephanie. He doesn’t care about their age difference, or what others will say. Mark will do whatever it takes to make her see they are meant to be regardless of the obstacles that lay ahead. He will fight for her because that’s what you do… you fight for the one you love.

*This novella contains explicit sexual encounters, which include ménage and group sex. 18 and over only.

EXCERPT: 

They showered and held each other, naked in her bed. It felt so good to be with a man that way again. Until then, she hadn’t realized how much she truly missed a man’s arms around her, and the feeling of safety and security it provided. The way he nuzzled into her neck as he held her, the way his breath tickled her ear, the way his leg dragged her close to him as he cuddled into her. He cared for her. She could feel it. A year ago, it would’ve overwhelmed her. She hadn’t been ready then, but Stephanie was ready now. She had ignored the need in her for too long. She let herself get caught up in her losses and neglected her basic needs. She wanted Mark. Plenty of women dated younger men, why not her?

“Goodnight, beautiful, and thank you for an unbelievable night.”

“Goodnight Mark, and thank you for giving me exactly what I needed.”

He smiled at her and kissed her lips and watched her until sleep took over.
