Genre: Contemporary Romance

However when a family emergency arises, she leaves Texas for a while, engaging in a long distance relationship with her lover. When she returns things are not the same.
Heartbroken she moves back to California vowing to never love again. But life can be unpredictable. A blind date with a handsome young designer, proves to be just the beginning of something beautiful for the emotionally scarred Melissa. Perhaps everything she’d been through was meant to bring her to this point.
Could this be her fate? Could David Whitmore be the ONE?
Want a Sexy Snippet?
“It’s just a little ice,” he spoke in a low, seductive manner. Taking the cube of ice, he brought it from her pussy, to her bountiful melon shaped breasts. As he locked his eyes on hers, David traced along the perimeter of her now hardened nipples.
Mel moaned in delight, as he masked the chill of the ice with the warmness of his tongue. “Whoa!” she cringed, taking another deep breath. Her juices were slowly making their way from the top of her spine, down her back and crashing down between her legs.
David was an expert at this beyond any doubt and he basked in the knowledge that he was pleasuring her, immensely. His sweet caresses became more intense as he rolled his tongue over an around her hardened nipple. Tearing his lips away from her, he allowed a few droplets of the water to sip from the melting ice cube to her overly sensitive peak. As the cold liquid, landed on her, a jolt of pleasure cut through Mel. Once again, her breath caught in her throat, when he took her nipple into the warmness of his mouth, sucking hard and amplifying her desire for him
When he suddenly withdrew himself and took her into his arms again, she almost cursed him for stopping. However, she quickly realized that they were simply moving to his bedroom.

About the Author:
During the day I work as a senior portrait photographer and a graphic
designer. I’m also a college student who loves zombies, vampires, and
werewolves. Anything supernatural I am drawn to along with Starbucks
frapes! I spend my free time watching The Vampire Diaries and True
Sooo, I was thinking about blog posts the other day, trying to come up with some new features. Something a little different, fun, and “weekend” appropriate. I came up with Steamy Sunday.
The idea is each week I will share something I think is steamy. It could be a photo, a tease from a story I have out, a hot scene from a WIP, even something steamy I saw during the course of the day — in a book, or a movie…well, I think you get the idea.
To start it off, I figured I would go with something simple (start small, right?) so I am going to share a steamy snipit from my latest erotic story, LOCK, STOCK, and SPANK HER, which is available now as part of Evernight Publishing’s The Crimson Rope anthology. I’ll put the buy links at the end of the post for those of you interested in checking it out.
Warning: The excerpt below is erotic in nature. It is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.

He tapped the toe of his boot on the inside of her heel. “Wider, girl. Spread those feet apart.”
Her response was muffled by the coverlet her face was pressed into. Blood sang through her veins, carrying the heady rush of adrenaline along with it. The effect was intoxicating, and she drank it in like an alcoholic after a dry spell, but still she wanted more. She heard his zipper and felt his weight shift behind her. The comforting force of his hand on her neck never wavered, and she grew anxious for what was to come next, evidenced by the desire soaking her inner thighs.
“Tell me what you want, angel.”
Beth whimpered. “You, Sir. So much…”
“Not specific enough.” He leaned over her back, his nipples searing her shoulder blades through her thin blouse. His arousal pressed against her hypersensitive and reddened ass. The iron hold left her neck, his hands reaching beneath her to rip open her shirt and take hold of the sensitive peaks of her breasts. He gave the hardened nubs a twist and light pull. “Beg me, girl. Show me what a needy submissive you are.” He released her and stood upright, his hips drawing away. “Unless you aren’t interested.”
“Oh God, no!” she cried, reaching back to take hold of his hips to keep him from retreating. “Please, Sir. Don’t go. I need you so much.”
“And I you, angel.” Alexander drove his hard cock into her, plunging deep with one swift stroke, a low growl rumbling from his chest.

If you think that’s hot, you should read the other stories in the anthology, not to mention the rest of this one.

Thanks for coming my to spend a little time with me. I’m always thrilled to see you.
Happy Steamy Sunday!
Mid-Week Tease: Just a Taste of River Reckoning by Jenny Lyn (@JennyLynwrites) #erotic #romance #MWTease
Welcome back, everyone.
Do I have a treat for you all this week. Since I tooted my own horn and shared a tease from a work I just had released last week, I thought I would share the spotlight this week and offer you all a little taste of friend and fellow Evernight author, Jenny Lyn’s latest erotic release, RIVER RECKONING.
Here are the juicy details on the story:
Genre: Erotic Romance
Blurb: Bond Mason’s roots run deep in the backwoods hamlet of Trespass, Florida. Nestled against the banks of the Suwannee River, the only home she’s ever known holds bittersweet memories of a family long gone. Except one of her ghosts isn’t dead and possessive ex-lover James Kyle wants her back.
U.S. Deputy Marshal Nathan Gates sights are set on capturing fugitive Robert Kyle. Wanted for the cold-blooded murder of a DEA agent, Robert is suspected of being hidden away with his moonshine-brewing, marijuana-growing family of fellow lawbreakers, one of which is his brother, James.
Nathan expected high temperatures when he arrived in Trespass. What he hadn’t counted on is his searing attraction to southern beauty Bond Mason. She winds him around her finger like a tendril of Spanish moss, but his lawman’s intuition tells him she’s hiding secrets too. When he finally convinces her to talk, he’s not prepared for the dark truths she reveals about her hometown.
The Suwannee is deep, but Trespass’s sins run much deeper. For once, Nathan might be in over his head.
* * * * *
Now that I have your full attention *winks* here is your Mid-week tease:
Mature Audiences Only!
“Nathan.” Her fingers nervously toyed with the robe’s sash. He gradually raised his gaze to hers, tearing it away from the temptation of her body. “I have a small confession to make.”
His interest was piqued. “I’m listening.”
Color flooded her cheeks. He put one knee on the mattress and kissed her jaw reassuringly. She braced her hands on his biceps, the heat of a sigh warming his ear. “Last night when you were kind of … bossy … I liked it … a lot.”
He grinned. That was some admission. His single-minded cock wholeheartedly approved. It was so hard it threatened to bust through the teeth of his zipper. “You like me telling you what to do, huh?”
She nodded. Her fingers caught the hem of his t-shirt, stripping it over his head. “I like it when you talk.”
“Last night you said I talked too much.”
“I can’t be held accountable for the things I say during incredible sex. I want you to talk.”
Incredible sex. No argument there, it had been. Tonight was going to top that.
The robe slipped off one shoulder exposing her right breast, an enticement impossible to resist. Nathan ducked his head and made a lazy circle around her nipple with the tip of his tongue. It tightened to a stiff peak. He felt her fingers slide through his hair, heard the tiny moan she made in her throat. “Dirty?” he asked against her skin.
“Anything. I want to listen, not think. I like your voice, but if you were saying naughty things it would be even better.”
He chuckled as he eased off the bed. Bond sat back on her heels, resting her hands on her thighs expectantly. “Take your hair down.”
She released the clip, allowing the dark mass to tumble free. When she shook her head, damp curls slid over her shoulders. Nathan reached out and wound a long lock around his fingers, tugging gently. “You’re stunning.” More color flooded her cheeks and neck. Her bottom lip slipped between her teeth. “Come closer.”
Rising to her knees, she scooted to the edge of the bed, pressing her chest to his. Nathan caught the lapels of her robe in his fists and pulled it down her arms, trapping them at her sides. He buried his face in her neck, trailing kisses across the tender, fragrant skin. Her scent made him drunk with desire, crazy with need. Never had he been so affected by a woman as he was by Bond. She was like some illicit drug, and he’d become a hopeless addict with one sample.
Oh yeah… that’s good stuff. I bet you are wondering now where you can pick up a copy.
Here you are:
About the Author:
I started reading when I was four, thanks to a babysitter who found out the only way to get me to sit still was to put a book in my hand. By the time I entered kindergarten, I’d blown through just about every Little Golden Book ever printed. Ten years later, much to my mother’s dismay, I found her stash of paperback romance novels. She tried to divert me back to something more chaste by buying me Harlequins, but I still snuck copies of her Kathleen Woodiwiss’s and Johanna Lindsey’s when she wasn’t looking. Shanna, The Flame and the Flower, and Fires of Winter will always hold special places in my heart because they introduced me to roguish heroes, headstrong heroines, and the trouble they could get into together.
I live in a swampy little corner of north-central Florida with my family, both the two-legged and four-legged variety. I love to read, run hot and cold in regards to cooking, and I never miss an episode of Justified, Longmire, or Dexter. I guess I like justice in all its various forms.
It’s been a while since I have had a chance to share a cover reveal with you all. Today is a good day, as I have a lovely one to share with you all.
This one is for Iyana Jenna’s latest release, A SINGLE BLACK ROSE.
Release Date: November 17, 2013
Publisher: JMS Books, LLC.
Description: Actor Sean O’Reilly received a bouquet of roses that at first he thought was sent by his boyfriend, Nate Matthews. Alarm bells rang when Nate said that he hadn’t sent them. Sean panicked when he kept receiving flowers over the next days, and what worried him more was that there was always a single black rose in the middle of other colored ones.
Together they tried to find out the meaning of all this. They found no answers. Sean and Nate didn’t realize that a wicked plot against Sean had been set up by an obsessed fan who was helped by a brother who had promised to always take care of him.

“They’re almost as beautiful as you are. Almost.”
Beth dropped the sapphire on the dresser and whipped about. “I didn’t hear you come in.”
Seeing his grin jumpstarted her pulse. “Yes, I see that.” He crossed to her in three long strides, his proximity stealing all the air from the room, and her lungs. “Hello, angel. I’m so glad you came.”
“Hello again, Sir.”
Before she could say another word, think another thought, Alexander grabbed her and pulled her into his arms. His mouth crushed hers in a bruising kiss.
Beth melted against him, arms sliding up to encircle his neck. She welcomed the feel of his body pressed against hers and savored the taste of his forceful lips.
Alexander growled and moved forward, backing Beth against the wall beside the dresser. His hands found her wrists, pinning them above her head while his mouth continued to ravish hers. He held her arms immobile with one hand, the other sliding down her side to the hem of her skirt. With minimal effort, he managed to hike it up above her waist. Hot lips kissed a trail of fire along the column of her throat. He drew back enough to capture her gaze, mouth curling into a wicked grin. “Now that we’ve gotten the vanilla out of the way.”

Here are the saucy details for my particular story, LOCK, STOCK, and SPANK HER:
Blurb: After a bad relationship with a cheating ex-dominant, Beth Turner has been reluctant to jump back into the D/s dating scene. Her best friend, Marcy, who just happens to be a lifestyle mistress, finally convinces Beth to take the plunge and attend a local fetish munch as her guest.
Beth plans to take it slow, and certainly doesn’t expect to run into the ultra-dominant Alexander Sterling, whose BDSM inventions are the stuff of local legend. Yet, somehow, he manages to convince her to be the test subject in his spanking demonstration. Strapped into his newest invention, Beth learns quickly there is more to him than a sexy, shaved head and form-fitting leather pants.
In fact, Alexander Sterling just may be her masterful perfect match.

“For now, I have two questions for you.”
“First one is easy. What’s your name?”
Her cheeks heated. “Beth.”
He reached out a hand in greeting. “Alexander Sterling. The pleasure is most assuredly mine.”
She placed her hand in his and he gave it a light shake.
“Now that we have the formalities out of the way, my dear Beth, it’s time for the second question. What are your limits?”
She cast a quick glance around the room to find what felt like a million sets of eyes trained on them. “You want to know that now?”
“It’s relevant. Trust me.”
“Umm…” She searched her befuddled brain for a response. “Blood, scat, needles, knives, permanent marks…the usual I guess. Oh, and mummification.” She shivered. “I can get a bit claustrophobic.”
“It is?” She tried to keep her gaze from wandering to the contraption resting on the parquet floor between them.
“Yes. I need your help. Will you help me?”
While she didn’t know him, and had only just met the man, her body, her very soul seemed attuned to him. Her every nerve ending responded to his request with a resounding yes. Despite the little voice in the back of her head telling her she was a fool for trusting a complete stranger, Beth whispered a meek, “Yes, Sir.”
“Good girl.” Alexander turned and faced their audience. “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, dominants and submissives. I want to thank you all for allowing me to take up some of your valuable time. Master James and his lovely submissive, Amy…” he waved a hand toward the table he had stopped at earlier, “…have requested I give you all a demonstration of my newest invention this evening. An item I am sure many of you will be very interested in seeing.”
Beth swallowed hard.
