Mid-week Tease: I Need a Richard… #MWTease #Erotic #BDSM #Romance #WickedWednesday

Mid Week Tease Button

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this week has been crawling by for me. Of course, it may be because I am headed to Cape Cod tomorrow (bright and too damned early) to enjoy 4 days of sun and surf on the coast. Yup — long week.

But, the good news is we all have the Mid-Week Tease to make the week go faster.

For my part, this week I thought I would share a bit of a teaser from my most recent Evernight Publishing release, A LEAP OF FAITH. I’m currently working on the next installment of this series, so have Richard on the brain right now. He is one of my favorite characters, and one of those dominants I wish I knew in real life… yup… tasty tasty.

Anyway, for all of us in need of a little Domination this week, here is a bit of my story A LEAP OF FAITH:

* * * * *

Faith woke to find herself still nestled tightly against Richard’s warm body and bright, early morning sunshine streaming through the gauzy gray curtains of his bedroom. Not quite ready to face the realities of dawn, she snuggled deeper into the covers, inhaled a lungful of his spicy scent, and pressed her eyes closed.

When she opened them again, her gaze locked with Richard, who sat reclined against the headboard. Had he been watching her sleep? She moved to sit up, cheeks heating.

Richard held her in place, a smile lighting his features. “Where do you think you’re going?”

“Sorry, I was just…”

“Just nothing. I’m not done admiring your beauty quite yet. The black leather collar suits you, pet.”

A tiny smile tugged at the corner of her lips, but before she could thank him, Richard swiped the blankets away with a quick jerk, exposing her nudity, and letting all the trapped heat out from under them.

Faith squealed, wrapped her arms around her bared breasts, and rolled into him. Burying her face against his chest, she gave an exaggerated shiver. “Too cold.”

“It’s like eighty degrees in here.”

She peeked up at him. “It was until you let all the heat out of the covers.”

He reached between her arms and tweaked a nipple. “Don’t worry. You’ll warm up while you’re making the coffee. You know where everything is, yes?”

She shivered and glanced across the room at the bedroom door. “It’s so far away.”

His laughter warmed her some. “You’ll survive. I like mine black, one sugar.” He gave her behind a pinch. “Hop to it. The sooner it’s done, the sooner you can return to the warm covers.” A teasing light danced in his eyes. “And, more importantly, me.”

Faith bowed her lips into a pretty pout. “May I have a kiss to keep me warm during my journey to the harsh and frozen realm of ceramic kitchen tiles?”

“How can I refuse you when you ask so nicely, fair maiden?” He gripped her chin, his sweet mouth descending towards hers. A hair’s breath from reaching her parted lips, Richard hesitated. “What do you say?”

“Please?” she begged.

He captured her mouth with his, heating Faith to her toes in the space of an instant, and scattering her thoughts like autumn leaves in a brisk wind.

She melted against him, whimpering when his tongue invaded and teased hers, taunting it to join in his erotic dance. Her hands slid up his toned pectorals on their way to encircle his neck.

Richard captured her wrists, stopping her timid advance in its tracks. He drew his hot lips away, leaving her breathless. “Oh, no you don’t. Nice try, little minx. Coffee first. Your reward comes afterward.”

I want a Richard reward… how about you guys? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below. I’m a comment whore, so …. I’ll just leave it at that.

Hello and welcome back to the blog for another weekly tease brought to you by SEXY SNIPPETS, where we share 7 steamy sentences from a WIP or published work.

LeapofFaith_WebBeing that A LEAP OF FAITH just released on Wednesday, I thought I would stick with that story for this week’s excerpt. This particular snippet comes from my favorite scene in the story — Faith and Richard’s “romantic” dinner.

(Faith is currently blindfolded and has just been fed a scrumptious morsel by her Dom, Richard)

“Thank you, Sir.”

“Would you like more?”

Her more carnal urges clawed their way to the surface, but she pressed them back into the darkest corner of her psyche. “If you wish, Sir.”

“Oh, no, little one, not what I wish. Pay attention when your dominant speaks to you. I asked if you wanted more.”

Trust me when I say, things only get better from here… but you will have to grab a copy of the story to find out.

(Yes, I can be a real bitch sometimes *wink*)

Here is where you can snag yourself a copy:

#SexySnippets: 3 Days Until Release Day. I’m celebrating now! #LeapofFaith #Erotic #BDSM #Romance

Welcome to #SexySnippets –where we share seven steamy sentences from a WIP or published work. As it says in the title, I’m ready to start celebrating since we are just three days away from my first solo release with Evernight Publishing, A LEAP OF FAITH. As some of you know, the story takes over where my Vanilla-Free Christmas tale, FAITH’S Gift leaves off, giving the reader another glimpse into the world of Faith Daniels and Richard Halstead.

I’m in standby mode on the cover from Sour Cherry Designs, which I can’t wait to see, and gearing up for the run of promotions that come with a new release. Things should get interesting over the coming weeks — thanks for riding along with me.

Here’s a peak at my soon to be released erotic romance, A LEAP OF FAITH:

Strong hands grabbed hold of her kneecaps, startling her. Richard jerked her legs apart until she knelt in an exposed V position. His voice arrived close to her ear, sending a chill through her. “When I ask you to kneel for me, this is how you are to do it. I want you to display your desire. Show your need with the pride of a submissive. Do you understand me, Faith?”

I can’t help myself…Richard is definitely one of my favorite leading men. So very Alpha *licks lips*

Anyway… thanks for coming by. Be sure to swing by the Sexy Snippets page to find the list of participating authors and go see them as well. There are some fantastic authors involved, and who knows, you just may find your next favorite along the way.

Happy Sunday!

#CalienteBlogHop: You tell me what’s hot. #Erotic #BDSM #Giveaway

Caliente Blog Hop

Welcome to the Book Nook for my little corner of the Caliente Blog Hop, brought to you by the Four Seduced Muses. I have been looking forward to this particular hop because it not only gives me the chance to meet and hopefully earn a few new followers, the rules for this one were super simple, and right up my alley. Just make the post HOT.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to share some short snippets from three of my erotic stories. Each is available in eBook at Amazon and various other retailers, but what I want to know from all of you stopping in, is which excerpt do you think is the HOTTEST. You can vote for your choice in the comments along with your email address to qualify to WIN the prize I’m offering here. The Four Muses will also be offering a GRAND PRIZE (includes eBooks, gift cards and swag) to one lucky hopper.

What’s hotter than that?

Okay, first I will give you the excerpts, and then give you the links and rules for entering to WIN.

Excerpt #1 (from BLOOD AND FIRE):

Once he’d maneuvered a right turn off the ramp, he glanced at me. “Open your legs, kitten. I want to taste my pussy.”

His words burned into my consciousness like a shot of tequila down my throat. My cheeks reflected the heat as I uncrossed my ankles and separated the heeled boots as far apart as the car’s seating allowed. Once I sucked air into my lungs, my tongue peeked out to moisten my lips.

Kevin reached across. Eyes on the road, his hand settled on my knee, slid up my thigh with torturous slowness, and stopped just short of my throbbing prize. He deftly took a left turn while his warm palm rested near my slick opening–unmoving–teasing me with its resistance to explore further.

Excerpt #2 (from FAITH’S GIFT):

She strained against his wristlock, tried to move closer to him.

“Patience,” he warned, holding her in place. “Good things come to those who wait.”

Frustration wormed its way into her chest. “You started it.”

Richard chuckled and released her. “True enough. But, I’m afraid you’re in over your head. I’m having terribly impure thoughts at the moment.”

She flashed a teasing grin. “Like?”

He inched closer, his voice coming just above a whisper. “Like blindfolding you and tying you spread eagle on my bed so I can take my time tasting every inch of you.” He reached up and tucked a long strand of chestnut from her flushed face. “That would be a fair start.”

Her stomach tightened into a knot.

Excerpt #3 (from A LEAP OF FAITH) — releases May 15, 2013

“Tell me, do you bruise easily?”

It took her a few moments to fully comprehend his words. “Uh…I’m not sure. I don’t think so.” She was fairly certain she didn’t want to know why he would ask something like that.

“I’m surprised, considering the paleness of your complexion.” Richard grabbed a handful of round cheek in each hand and pulled them apart. “I could play with you for hours.” He released her. “I’m sure you don’t mind.”

Before she could answer, he swirled a teasing digit around her brown eye, scattering her thoughts. He gathered up some of her creamy goodness and stuffed it into the hungry hole. “Have you ever had your ass fucked?”

Faith recalled Sebastian’s fumbling efforts to take her ass and shook her head. “No, Sir.”

“Such a waste. We should fix that.

Okay. Now that I have you all worked up, it’s time to tell you how you can win the prizes being offered for the Hop.

To enter to WIN the GRAND PRIZE visit FOUR SEDUCED MUSES and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway on their site. You can click there name above or HERE to jump over there now and enter.

“What did you say?”

She released a cry of dismay at his abrupt abandonment of her pleasure center. “Oh, God, no. Don’t stop. Please.” She tossed her head back against the pillows.

“Did you need something, pet?”

Her fingers dug into his shoulders, her leg muscles tense. “I asked for permission to come, Sir.”

Yup. I like that one. How about you? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section. Love hearing from you all. 🙂

Welcome back to the blog for another installment of Sexy Snippets. Sharing seven steamy sentences from a publication or WIP.

In keeping with Evernight Publishing’s #BookBoyfriend Blog event, I decided to feature my chosen book boyfriend, Richard Halstead. However, this time, instead of sharing from my already published Vanilla-Free Christmas story, I have decided to share seven from my expected May 15th release with Evernight Publishing, A LEAP OF FAITH –which also features hunky dominant,  Richard Halstead.

Here is this week’s seven:

Strong hands grabbed hold of her kneecaps, startling her. Richard jerked her legs apart until she knelt in an exposed V position. His voice arrived close to her ear, sending a chill through her. “When I ask you to kneel for me, this is how you are to do it. I want you to display your desire. Show your need with the pride of a submissive. Do you understand me, Faith?”

A LEAP OF FAITH is the sequel to FAITH’S GIFT and the second story in my “Roses and Thorns” series. It will be part of Evernight Publishing’s Romance on the Go line with a projected release date of May 15, 2013, so be sure to check it out then.

Welcome to another installment of Sexy Snippets, where we share seven steamy sentences from a WIP or completed work. This week, I thought I would share another small piece of my erotic romance, A LEAP OF FAITH, which is due for release from Evernight Publishing in May of this year.

“Yes, Sir.” Faith padded across the carpet, grabbing a terrycloth robe from the coat rack near the bathroom door on her way by.

“What are you doing?”

She froze mid stride, one arm  half stuffed in the robe’s sleeve and glanced over her shoulder. “Getting the coffee, Sir.”

“Put the robe back on the peg, Faith. I didn’t give you permission to cover yourself.”

*shivers* Man, I just love a man who knows he is in control. Always makes me melty 😛 How about you? What sort of man gets you hot? Commanding? Sweet? Leave a comment below and let me know.

As always, thanks so much for stopping in. Be sure to swing by the other authors offering SEXY SNIPPETS this week. You can click the link in the previous sentence, or click on the image at the top of the page to get the list.
