Featured Author Marie Tuhart

Today I’m featuring Marie Tuhart and her story Highland Dom which is in Passionate Cravings an Erotic Romance Book Sampler.

Are you in control of your characters or do they control you?Passionate Cravings

I would say most of the time its 50/50, but occasional they run off with the story

What drew you to the characters in this story?

Well, this was a call from The Wild Rose Press for their Real Men Wear Kilts program. I was intrigued and began to build characters around the premise that the male lead must wear a kilt somewhere in the book.

What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?

I really don’t have a favorite punctuation mark, I do tend to use comma’s a lot even if they’re not needed.

Could you tell us a about Highland Dom?

Sexual education professor and dominant Cameron McMillan has had his eye on the perf5.000x8.000.inddsubmissive, sexy cafe owner since she settled in his hometown four years ago, but he was already in a relationship. But that fell apart, and after soothing his heart while teaching at the University in Scotland, he’s back. Cameron is ready to see if Kristen is interested in acting on the sexy words she whispered to him at his farewell party. He doesn’t want to wait another day to introduce her to the world of BDSM…if she’s willing.

Kristen Caldwell never thought Cameron would act on her whispered invitation to tie her up and spank her…liquor and him being an ocean away had made her brave. But he has returned, and she’s tentative but ready to explore her kinky side despite past failures with other partners. The sexy and dominate professor might be just what she needs in the bedroom, though she worries about what others will think if she’s seen with him. Will a relationship with Cameron put her successful business at risk?

Things start out great, but Kristen’s fears and shadows in her past rear their ugly head, threatening more their relationship. She has to decide whether to stand up for what she wants or run…again.

Would you share an excerpt?

“Look at me.” His command was just as firm as his last. When their gazes met, he let out a breath. “How much do you know?”

“You volunteer at the local BDSM club, and teach sexual health at the university.” Her voice was soft and low.

“Yes, but how much do you know about the lifestyle?” Was she really interested? It was hard to tell.

“A bit.” She squirmed in her chair. “This isn’t the place we should be talking about this.”

Cam glanced around the café; no one was here, yet. And his sister was keeping to the kitchen. “No one is here. Tell me.”

“I…” Her gaze dropped, and she shook her head. “Not here.” Her voice was stronger. “I won’t risk my business.”

Someone walked by the café, and Cam shifted in his seat. “Meet me for dinner tonight.”

“I have to bake tonight.”

“I’ll bring dinner here, but we are going to talk.” Cam stood up and circled behind Kristen as someone walked into the café. He leaned down and whispered in her ear, “Because I can’t wait to tie you to my bed. Tease you. Torment you. And take you.” Cam straightened, turned, and strode out the café door.

New Release – She Came First

I’m so excited to share the release of my new book SHE CAME FIRST.

My daughter gave me a tour of the Charlotte Speedway. I’ve always loved car racing and perf5.000x8.000.inddused to watch it with my dad, but I’d never been at a track before. We had a tour of all three tracks, drag racing, dirt, and Nascar. Then our tour guide, a lady who told us she came with the dirt, drove us around the Nascar track fast. Now we weren’t traveling as fast as the racing drivers, but with my vivid imagination I could pretend I was.

I was talking with a fellow Wild Rose Press author about the experience and she told me to write the story.

Blurb:

As head mechanic for her family’s stock car team, Tracy Hyland is making sure her car is ready for tomorrow’s race. If the car comes in first, she can claim her rightful place in the business. She can’t afford distractions, especially an ex high school sweetheart, one who broke her heart but still makes her engine purr.

Racecar driver Delaney P. Jones comes home to drive the Hyland’s car and to win back the girl he left behind. To break the iciness between them, he tempts his sexy mechanic into a smoldering dance of passion. His ultimate goal might prove more difficult—getting her across a private finish line.

Excerpt:

Tracy Hyland slipped into the garage of the family motorsport business and smiled as she glanced at her 1989 Camaro. Her baby’s new blue and white paint glistened in the overhead light. Tomorrow was the car’s first race. Her hopes of standing in the number one spot on the podium depended on their performance.

She walked to the radio and cranked her music. Music and racing—pure heaven.

While the male mechanics would be at their favorite watering hole, hoping to hook up with pit bunnies for a night, she planned a quiet evening ensuring her car was tuned perfectly. Who was she kidding? She was just tinkering. Better here alone than in a noisy bar with strangers.

Tracy had become the head mechanic only after her dad died in a fiery crash. Women belonged in the office, not the track, or so he thought. She should go home and get a good night’s sleep—alone. She liked a good fuck. Actually, a great night in the sack helped her relax before a race, but she’d make do with a hot shower and Dilly the dildo to relieve her tension. What more could she want?

Tracy let the music take hold of her and boogied toward the car, twirling around and shimmying her breasts.

The side door opened, and she froze mid-step and turned.

Delaney P. Jones leaned against the jamb, filling the doorway. Her pulse quickened at the sight of her high school sweetheart.

Interview with Author Desiree Holt

Today I’m featuring Desiree Holt and her book FINDING REDEMPTION. The first Passionate Cravingschapter is featured in PASSIONATE CRAVINGS, an Erotic Book Sampler.

Are you in control of your characters or do they control you?

I like to think I control them but that’s not the truth. Sigh! As I write they get in my head and tell me what to do. Fortunately it usually turns out pretty good!

What drew you to the characters in this story?

Ethan Caine is based on a real life person, a friend of my sons. People talked about Bill all the time, his strange lifestyle, his quirks, his so-called undercover work. The more I saw him, the more I heard about him , the more I knew I had to make him the hero in a book. **Side note: his friends who read the book said I nailed his character.

What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?

The exclamation point. I think because I always want to emphasize things!

Tell us about FINDING REDEMPTION.

Lisa Mallory’s marriage from hell ended with her husband’s unsolved murder. Four years later, her eight-year-old son, Jamie, is kidnapped. When every other avenue of finding him fails, she turns to her brother’s best friend. He’s not the man she’d have chosen, but to get her son back, she’ll suffer anything…even the desire he stirs that she’d thought long dead.

Ethan Caine, former Marine/special ops agent, is dealing with his own private hell. All he wants is to be left alone with a bottle of whiskey to drown the guilt of surviving a mission gone wrong. When he finally agrees to go after Jamie, he certainly doesn’t want the boy’s mother slowing him down. Besides, she makes him ache to have her naked and beneath him. Worse, she stirs dreams of the future…something he doesn’t deserve.

Passion explodes between Ethan and Lisa in the exotic Quintana Roo jungle, even as the past and present threaten to steal it all.

Excerpt:

Of course it was raining. How fitting that the weather should be miserable.

Lisa Taylor Mallory shifted on the folding chair provided by the cemetery, careful not to perf5.000x8.000.inddmove out from under the umbrella held by the funeral home attendant. Next to her, four-year-old Jamie snuggled closer to her, needing the assurance of his mother’s warmth.

Under his own umbrella, Pastor Howard Devol of Mangrove Baptist Church intoned passages from the Bible. He had already eulogized Charles Mallory to the point of sainthood. Lisa clenched her fists and swallowed the nausea that insisted on rising at the back of her throat as she listened to the words.

If you only knew. Just let this be over. Please, please, let us get this over with.

She let her gaze travel over the crowd of mourners. The abundance of black umbrellas nearly formed a canopy over the assemblage. Tampa society’s A List as well as the giants of the financial world were gathered in their best funeral attire to mourn a man whose sins had been swept away in fire at the foot of a mountain.

“Keeping up the myth,” Josh Taylor had told his sister.

This is for Jamie.

He was so frightened by the circus surrounding the death of his father. Lisa wanted him to have closure on what had become an outrageous situation. Despite the devil’s trap her marriage had become, Charles Mallory had always been good to his son. So much so that Lisa had lived in constant fear Charles would one day disappear with him and leave her behind.

Sitting on her other side, Josh squeezed her arm, a signal that this farce would soon be over and everything would be okay. Not exactly the word she’d have chosen to describe the current state of her life. She clenched one gloved hand in her lap. No, okay wasn’t even in the ball park.

At last, the interminable ceremony ended. Josh rose and nudged her to stand with Jamie. The pastor signaled her to come forward. With her brother’s arm supporting her, she stepped over to the casket and took the white rose the pastor held out. She stared at the casket for a long moment, then dropped the rose on its mahogany surface.

In a voice so low only her brother heard it, she said, “Rot in hell, you son of a bitch.”

Featured Author Anne Hague

Today I’m featuring Anne Hague and her story Angel’s Collar which is featured in Passionate Cravings, and erotic sampler book.Passionate Cravings

Welcome Anne. I’m so happy to have you today. Tell us about your book.

Angel’s Collar

Book One of the Love Strictly Tested series

I have it all…until he shows me more.

I didn’t intentionally spill wine all over the most beautiful guy in the room, and one look at those icy-blue eyes brings on a major lapse in coherent speech. Jordan Caldera tells me his secret and wants me to join him. This is where my journey into submission begins.

So much about BDSM freaks me out, but at the same time, I can’t help but be intrigued. When I imagine Jordan doing those things to me, I can’t resist the adventure. Mind-blowing sex aside, my life is changing at an alarming rate and getting very complicated. Between balancing my career and my best friend’s concerns, the secrets I’m keeping are killing me.

What am I willing to risk for the new lifestyle I’ve embraced…and the man I love?

 

Excerpt:

“Oh my gosh,” I squealed. My hand barely coveredperf5.000x8.000.indd

the gaping hole my mouth formed. “I am so sorry.” The

massive red wine stain all over the front of a pure white

shirt on a rock hard chest glared like a traffic light. As

my gaze traveled up and up, his face, in addition to

being a visual perfection, appeared rather amused.

Well, at least that’s what I deducted, while devouring

those ice blue eyes which complemented the thick rich

brown hair which was a little too long for a guy in a

fancy suit. Chocolate lava cake at its best. All I wanted

to do was to swirl whipped cream all over this sinful

dessert of a man.

“Here, let me get some club soda and towels.” I

wanted to make a quick retreat to find a way to repair

the damage to his shirt as well as my embarrassment.

“No. Don’t worry. It’s all right.” He regarded the

stain and then me. “You could have just introduced

yourself instead of ruining my shirt.”

“Well. I do like to make an impression.” His

genuine smile made me relax and too warm all over.

“Really, though, let me pay for the cleaning.”

“It’s just a shirt.” He crossed his arms over his

chest. “I’m still waiting.”

“Forrrr?” I was confused, befuddled, and

hopelessly embarrassed.

“An introduction.”

Wow. He was serious about knowing who I was.

“I’m Emma Samuelson.” I couldn’t decide whether to

extend my hand, kneel at his expensive Italian shoes, or

just bat my eyes to flirt.

I’m a terrible flirt, and by terrible I mean, I do it

often, but not all that well, and kneeling would draw

attention. So, I extended my sweaty hand.

Author Interview with Nancy Fraser

Today I am so excited to feature Nancy Fraser. I’m a big fan of her books. Thanks for stopping by.

My first questions is are you in control of your characters or do they control you?

LOL … those sneaky little buggers take me all over the place before finally settling down into a smooth rhythm. However, in the end, I am the boss (snicker) and they do what they’re told.

What drew you to the characters in this story?

Scottish culture amuses me. From the bagpipes and fiddles, to the Highland games/dancing, to the strange food. Yes, I’ve eaten Haggis. I didn’t enjoy it, but I ate it to please my late father-in-law. I wanted to create a more modern version of the Scottish culture and take it out of Scotland and drop it into a New England location that still celebrates the best of their heritage.

And now my favorite question. What is your favorite punctuation mark and why?

Much to my editor’s chagrin, the ellipses. Without a doubt, the ability…unhampered by convention…to stop my thoughts mid process is always a winner!!

Your book Kilty Pleasures is featured in Passionate Cravings, An Erotic Sampler. Could you share a bit about your story.

Why yes.

When Ronan MacAlister returns to Glencoe, Maine to see to the affairs of his late uncle, Passionate Cravingshe’s immediately reminded of why he’s stayed away. The small town is definitely not his cup of tea, and he can’t wait to settle the estate and be done with the cold winters. The only bright spot is the feisty farm manager, Aileen. All grown up now and far from the shy and reserved girl from his childhood, she exudes a steamy sexuality that has Ronan and his unruly body on full alert.

Aileen MacDougall had a huge crush on Ronan when she was a teenager, content to adore him from afar whenever his family came to Glencoe for a visit. Now he’s back, and although the circumstances are less than ideal, she’s eager to find out if her fantasies can live up to reality. But he holds the key to the future of Glencoe in his hands as well as her own hopes and dreams.

Can being trapped together in a remote cabin during a freak snowstorm melt his heart?

Could you share an excerpt from Kilty Pleasures?

Ronan pushed the last letter into place atop the triple word square. “Reticent. Tacking on to your word and utilizing the ‘e’, that’ll be another eighty-six points for me.”perf5.000x8.000.indd

“Nice play. Too bad you’re still forty points behind.”

He shot her a glare, followed by what he hoped was his most lascivious grin. “You know what would make this more interesting?”

“Let me guess, Strip Scrabble.”

“I was going to say Nude Scrabble, but I’m willing to work for it.”

“I bet you are. Why don’t we put the game away and go to bed? It is after midnight.”

He gathered his remaining game pieces and dumped them into the storage pouch. “I’ll go light a few candles, maybe take a quick shower.”

She nodded and then stood, gathering up the game board and box in her hands. “When you come out of the shower you should put the kilt back on.”

“Hmm…kinky. I like it. What will you be wearing?”

“A smile.”

Interview with Cadence Vonn

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Cadence Vonn. Thanks for stopping by today.

My First question is are you in control of your characters or do they control you?

My characters talk to me. I might be driving the car, but they’re my GPS.

What drew you to the characters in this story?

I love old movies where the heroine is incognito. So I created Tess. She has a mixture of my grandmother’s spunk and my Italian heritage. With Max, nothing is sexier than a stoic man who turns out to be sex as Hell.

And now for my favorite question. What is your favorite punctuation mark and why? The exclamation point! My characters get excited and are vocal when they’re focused on pleasure. It adds that necessary punch at the end.

You’re book, Play A Game With Me, is featured in Passionate Cravings, an eroticPassionate Cravings sampler. Tell us a little about it.

Maximilian Westfield has resurrected his family’s company under the controlling eye of the major shareholder–his mother. To keep the company, he must marry the woman she chooses, no matter how inane or spineless. He is resigned to go through with the arranged marriage until he meets a feisty costume designer who will never meet his mother’s standards. A stolen kiss spurs his lustful cravings. Once he tastes the spirited beauty’s charms, he knows he has to find a way to keep her and his company. No other woman will do.

The daughter of a powerful British businessman, Teresa Medici Staffordshire leads her life as Tess Medici to avoid men out to please her father. Then she meets Maximilian, a sexy uptight CEO. From the moment he unleashes his expert fingers on her skin, she’s hooked. His erotic games make her body hum with pleasure. Determined to lure Max out to play, every encounter becomes a game of enticement. But his commitment to his family business and his mother’s determination to marry him off makes it impossible to take the relationship public, and Tess refuses to be his guilty little secret

Choices become consequences, their future is on the line, and Max and Tess are running out of time.

Could you share an excerpt from Play A Game With Me?

I’d love to.

Tess opened the door on the first knock.

Max stood transfixed. His fingers fisted together and he scanned her body before he said, perf5.000x8.000.indd“May I come in?”

She stepped out of the way, sweeping her arm in a welcoming gesture.

“What brings you here, Maximilian?”

“I found myself outside hoping the need to see you would pass. I wanted to convince myself that last night was a fluke, but just now when I saw you standing here all thought of not being with you flew out the window. Damn, I want you.” He pulled her into his arms. His hands gripped her bottom, crushing her against him as he claimed her mouth in a hard kiss.

Tess buried her fingers in the waves of hair near the nape of his neck. She held his head so she could deepen the kiss he’d already started. His breath tasted of scotch, and she wondered how many glasses he drank trying to forget her.
