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.

perf5.000x8.000.indd

 

Blurb: Leather-wearing, motorcycle riding PI Heaven Vaughan is working undercover in a Las Vegas casino for the DA. She must find the evidence to convict the casino boss of ordering her brother killed, but the tall, dark, sex-on-a-stick head of security is constantly watching her. Just knowing he’s got his monitors focused on her makes her hot, and she can’t help but make sure he has something as equally arousing to look at.

Straight-arrow Darius Turner has one job—to safeguard the people in the casino. The feisty redhead dominating his viewing pleasure is playing havoc with his duties and with his libido. All he wants is to take her up on her teasing invitations, but he can’t let her get too close. If Heaven discovers his true identity, there’ll be hell to pay.

Preorder will be available soon.

 

 

Featured Author – Elizabeth Alsobrooks

Today my guest is Elizabeth Alsobrooks, featuring her book Stolen Secrets, Fantasy Romance.

Stolen Secrets is a romance spinoff from my Illuminati (Urban Fantasy) series, so is much more character driven and oriented than what is usual for me. It’s steamier, of course, and the hero is hot, hot, hot, if I do say so myself.  Here is who I pictured when writing this:eliazabeth-1

I’m sure you can see how princely he looks? What English gal stranded in Cairo could resist such a persuasive hunk? Well, the heroine, Lady Isabella Valentine tries, but being a romance I guess you know how it ends . . . .

Here’s how it begins:

Everything about the shop was irregular, including the displays which projected at odd angles, supported by ornate wooden brackets and the occasional book case or other Egyptian artifact. Its merchandise had been collected and added to over a lifetime of adventures, and the result was vastly eclectic and often mismatched and even mysterious. The windows of the cluttered antiquities dealership, not yet shuttered, allowed slanted sunlight to illuminate dust motes, thick and insidious, seeking every crevice and ornate feature in which to drift. Brushing her hand across the table to clear it of its most recent layer, Isabella unrolled the map and traced the route with her fingertip.

She heard the bell above the front door jingle, waited for the expected greeting, and sighed. Five minutes later and Misha would have arrived to clean and bar the entrance, and then she could begin preparing for the dig of a lifetime.eliazabeth #2.jpg

Offered an enormous sum by an anonymous benefactor for the acquisition of an ancient ceremonial relic, a sum that would keep the antiquities shop in Cairo her father left her afloat while she continued her own archaeological pursuits, Lady Isabella Valentine was distracted rather than tempted, then suspicious, when the dashing young Bedouin slipped in just before closing and promised her a deal she couldn’t refuse–for the very same relic. Despite his sensual appeal, she did refuse him, sending him away.

Prince Mukhtar, son of Sheikh Abdul Kummel al-Rahman, leader of the Hassana, is on a sacred Illuminati mission for Queen Isis to retrieve something stolen from one of her temples over a thousand years ago. This mortal disbeliever though an enchanting English rose, however beautiful she might be, is clearly in the power of the Usurper and must be persuaded to help him, one way or another. But neither of them know of the evil power they are up against, or what hidden dangers await them in the tomb of the high priest.

Available for preorder on Amazon, for sale in kindle, nook and trade paperback on Valentine’s Day.

Featured Author – Kara O’Neal

Today I’m featuring author Kara O’Neal and her book Love’s Redemption.

Love’s Redemption is a story of forgiveness and courage. I loved writing this book. Willa is someone I admire. She’s had a tough life and does everything she can to love-s-redemptionprotect her loved ones. I enjoyed exploring her heart and watching her achieve happiness. And she deserves so much happiness. Lonnie is the man she needs, loyal, steady and kind. He is, without doubt, my favorite hero in the Pikes Run Series. (So far.) And while he has a calm nature, he can be just as assertive and determined as Willa. Together they make a wonderful couple, a model of true love. You will not be disappointed in their journey!

Amazon Buy Link: http://amzn.to/2etVDdU

Blurb:

When she was little more than a child, Willa Kramer went to extreme lengths to save her family from their abusive father. After that horrible day, her mother and siblings moved to Tennessee, and Willa had hoped to leave Texas, its memories and Lonnie Davis, the only boy she had ever trusted, behind. But fate is unpredictable.

Five years have passed, and Lonnie finds himself reunited with Willa, the only girl he’s ever loved. He’s determined not to let her slip away again, but a figure from the past looms, threatening his hopes for the future.

Snippet:

He paused. His chest tightened. He’d waited a long time to see her, had wondered if he ever would. Years ago, she’d wrapped him around her little finger, and he’d grown so attached to her, he’d thought about moving to Tennessee to be with her. But then she had stopped writing. To say it had hurt would be an understatement. But he hadn’t been angry. He could never be angry with her. Never. And now she was back and near. It was too tempting.

After taking a deep breath, he moved forward then went through the screen door. Even though it gave a loud creak, she didn’t turn. Did she know it was he who stood behind her?

The light breeze ruffled her skirt. Her long, velvety hair grazed the small of her back. An ache centered in the pit of his stomach. He’d missed her. And now she was here. “Hello, Willa.”

Featured Author – Judy Ann Davis

                                                      UNDER STARRY SKIES

Today I’m featuring author Judy Ann Davis.

Romance happens under Colorado’s starry skies.

http://a.co/fWfrw43

How did “Under Starry Skies” by Judy Ann Davis come about? Since the author had understarryskies-cover-brighter2worked in adult education and understood the value of reading and writing for all adults, the story of school teacher Maria O’Donnell teaching Indian Two Bears to read and write in 1875 seemed plausible for a storyline. Two Bears was a minor but favorite and humorous character in her first book, “Red Fox Woman.” She felt she had to bring him back in the sequel because her readers fell in love with him and his humorous and wily disposition. They also fell in love with the youngest Ashmore brother, Tydall, who’s the story’s hero.

Amazon Kindle:  http://a.co/fWfrw43

Blurb:

Hired as the town’s school teacher, Maria O’Donnell and her sister Abigail arrive in the Colorado Territory in 1875, only to find the uncle they were to stay with has been murdered.

Rancher Tye Ashmore is content with life until he meets quiet and beautiful Maria. He falls in love at first sight, but her reluctance to jeopardize her teaching position by accepting his marriage proposal only makes him more determined to make her part of his life.

When their lives are threatened by gunshots and a gunnysack of dangerous wildlife, Tye believes he is the target of an unknown enemy. Not until Maria receives written threats urging her to leave does she realize she might be the target instead of the handsome rancher.

With the help of Tye, Abigail, and a wily Indian called Two Bears, Maria works to uncover her uncle’s killer and put aside her fears. But will she discover happiness and true love under Colorado’s starry skies?

Snippet:

Two Bears reached out and laid a hand on her trembling ones to still her. “Listen closely. You must tell Tye Ashmore and those you trust. You must always carry a weapon with you. Do not take chances. Do not be foolish. Foolish men are the first to die. Take a different path to the school each morning. We need to find your enemy.”

“I don’t know how.” Maria gave a choked, desperate laugh. She watched Two Bears stare with a hawk like gaze at the forest leading to the stable of the manse, then let his eyes encircle the entire wooded area at the edge of the yard.

Finally he spoke in a calm steady voice. “Enemies are not always wise enemies. They get careless. Then we will find him. . .or he will reveal himself.”

Character interview, Joran Zoma from Timeless Heat.

Today I’m interviewing Joran Zoma from Timeless Heat, published by The Wild Rose Press, November 4, 2016.

“So you live on a planet trillions of miles from Earth, what do you do for a living there?”

I’m an intergalactic trader from the planet Vanta, and I travel to all corners of known timelessheat_w10833_750space. I’m also a member of a secret Coalition dedicated to the preservation of humanity. In my world, female infertility has reached a critical tipping point and unscrupulous traders steal females to sell in the sex slave markets. I’ve supported the Coalition by rescuing females who have been kidnapped from their worlds by these ruthless people.

“What is your favorite food?”

I have a favorite food from every planet I visit. I love juji corns from Eravis and quaziberries from Zelos. Each planet has something wonderful and unique. My younger sister recently started to cultivate strawberries from Earth on Vanta. So far, she’s having mixed success, but I’ve enjoyed being a taste tester.

“What did you think of Ava Fisher when you first met?”

My business partner Max and I were stranded in space due to a strange radioactive dust storm—and we were dying. Like most humanoid males we experience sexual heat cycles. Because of this space storm, our sexual hormones fell to critical levels. I transported Ava through time and space so she could save us. She possessed hormones that could reverse our dire situation. When she arrived on my transporter pad, she looked like a dream.

“Do you believe in love at first sight?”

“Oh yes. Due to the female infertility crisis in the galaxy, I never expected to have love in my life. When I first saw Ava, I knew all that had changed. She was everything I ever dreamed of—and she has the kindest and most generous heart.

“Please describe Ava in one word.”

I need more than one word. My Heart.

“Thanks for visiting with me today.”

Blurb:

Adrift in space after a strange cosmic phenomena sent them into severe sexual heat, intergalactic trader Joran Zoma and his business partner, Max, are dying. Time is running out, and only a woman from the distant past can save them.
Ava Fisher, recently divorced and deeply unhappy, is trying to move away from the hurt and bitterness of her past. Then she’s kidnapped by two strangers—aliens from a different time and place. More astounding is their claim that she carries a rare hormone and must mate with them to save their lives.

Excerpt:

Joran nodded and awkwardly shifted his body away from her. His fingers dug into the soft arms of his chair. “As a biologist, you’re familiar with sexual heat?”

“Of course.” She’d learned about that in high school biology 101. “Some female animals experience…”

Joran shook his head, interrupting. “It hasn’t been that way in a long time. For more than a millennium, humanoid males have gone through sexual heat cycles. Some believe it’s nature’s response to increasing female infertility. The storm critically diminished our testrus causing us to go into severe heat. Normally, early onset or out-of-cycle heat is only painful if unsatisfied, but our levels are so weakened…” He pressed his lips together and sighed. “Without the high estrus levels of an Alpha female, we’ll die. Maxim only has five to six hours to live.”

Her eyes shot open as realization dawned on her. He didn’t want her blood, her cells… The straining bulge between his legs spoke volumes, but Ava pressed on, needing to be very, very clear. “When you say you need a female with high estrus, you mean…”

“Only through sexual…” His hand, so stiff, ran through his thick, short-cropped hair. The muscles all over his body tightened as he forced the words out. “I brought you here to mate with us and save our lives.”

Bio:

Writing has always been a part of my life. I loved to write short stories as a little girl, and I majored in communications in college. While I’ve spent most of my career as a public relations writer, I dreamed of being a romance novelist. I was fortunate to meet my personal romance hero during college. We met at a fraternity party my freshman year at school and became fast friends. One night I was eating dinner at his fraternity, and my future husband suavely sat on an empty table beside me to chat. Unfortunately, that table was missing a leg and it collapsed on my arm. When he called the next day to check on me, I had to tell him my arm was broken. (It was!) Devastated but still gallant, he asked me out on a date. We’ve now been married more than a few decades and have two teenage sons.

New Release – The Warrior in Me by Anita Philmar

Today I’m featuring The Warrior in Me, a Erotic Murder Mystery/ Romantic Suspense by Anita Philmar.

Special Security Agent Sebastian Berlin is eager to track down his partner’s killer. Instead, perf5.000x8.000.inddhe’s assigned the job of baby-sitting a scientist. His boss thinks she’s the key to an Ancient Warrior Prophecy. Science never interested Sebastian, but the know-it-all female standing at the end of his Alaskan dock could persuade him to do a little experimenting. That is, if he can keep his Neanderthal Warrior genes from taking control.

DNA specialist Lily Sinclair is in need of a vacation, or so her over-protective ex-husband tells her. Arriving in chilly Alaska instead of sunny Cancun, she’s tired and cranky and so not in the mood for her bodyguard’s he-man tactics. Still, there’s something about the sexy eye-candy that makes her want to lick him all over even as she’s demanding to go home.

Then Lily’s ex is poisoned, and Sebastian is certain the two murders are connected and she could be next. She knows he’s hiding something, but with the worldwide release of Neanderthal DNA project only days away, she has no choice but to trust him to protect her. But can she trust him with her heart?

Excerpt:

Seconds before his mouth covered hers, she whispered, “Sebastian, I don’t—” The rest of the sentence died under the quick spear of his tongue, seeking entrance into the hot moist haven of her mouth.

The fight he expected didn’t fully materialize. She gasped in shock, and her body stiffened. Then she lifted her hands to his shoulders, leaving the few inches between them vacant.

Tightening his grip, he drew the soft cushion of her breasts invitingly against his chest. All too quickly, he moved past the point of a simple kiss and fed on her unique flavor. He’d gone too long without the seductive touch of a woman. Today, she’d tempted him with the fire of her anger and the gentle concern for him at the loss of his friend. Holding himself in check, he’d resisted until she’d revealed her passion for her research. Now, he couldn’t contain his enthusiasm for her any longer. He ate at her lips, nipping and sucking until they opened wider.

Lily moaned, and he captured the sound, swallowing it as he flicked his tongue against the roof of her mouth. She welcomed him by drawing him deeper. He thrust in and out, over and over mimicking the ancient rhythm of sex.

Determined to sample every inch of the hot, moist cavity, he drank in the rich, sweet nectar. As stimulating as wine, he became drunk on her and tangled his tongue around hers. Time lost meaning. He forgot everything except her hands in his hair, her body plastered against his, the relentless need to consume her.

Somewhere in his subconscious, something reminded him that women didn’t progress from “Hello, it nice to meet you” to “Do you want to go to bed with me” this quickly. On the other hand, maybe, the light tingling of his scalp as she curled her fingers in his hair helped jog his memory. He had to take things a little slower if he wanted to win the girl.
