#CoverLove Cover Reveal: Blood and Fire by R. Brennan #erotic #bdsm #horror

So… my erotic horror novella is getting expanded and re-released with Roane Publishing. I am beyond excited about the change, as I am looking to expand the story into a Paranormal Erotic series, and this is the first big step in that process. Since it is being re-released, it of course, gets a shiny new cover.

I really like this one, as I feel it more accurately reflects the story itself. What do you think?  Love it? Hate it?

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Mid-Week Tease: I like My Teases a Little Dark. You? #MWTease #Erotic #Horror #Dark

Mid Week Tease Button

It’s Mid-week tease time again. One of my favorite days, by the way. For the teaser this week, I thought I would go with something a little darker, and give you all a little bit of my favorite Dominant, Bartholomew Andrews from my BDSM erotic novella, BLOOD AND FIRE. While this tale also features some BDSM elements, the story is most definitely a dark erotic tale, as it features some paranormal elements as well as a bit of blood and gore. Yet, with all that darkness, Master Bartholomew still shines.

Here is a little tidbit to illustrate what I mean: (Mature Audiences ONLY)

* * * * *

He yanked me to my feet with a growl, his eyes darkening to deep sapphire. A shudder of apprehension coursed through me, puckering my sensitive nipples. His mouth crushed mine in a brutal kiss.

When he pulled his lips away, my head fell back. I gasped for air, breasts heaving.

Bartholomew captured a tight pink nipple with his teeth. My nails dug into his biceps under the tremors of delight that ran down my abdomen. His mouth released my breast while his hands pushed at my shoulders, backing me against the cross. “It’s time to show Master what you’re made of, slave. Are you sure you’re ready to be mine?”

My legs turned to jelly. I’d never wanted anything more in my life. He damned well knows it. Doesn’t he? I’d said it in my head. But, maybe that wasn’t enough, after all.

“Make me yours, Master.”

Bartholomew smiled wide. Twisting a giant screw mechanism, he tilted the cross backward and locked it flat. He reached a hand toward me like a magician beckoning his assistant. “Come play with me, pet.”

Without hesitation, I took his hand and lay down on the sparse surface. My heart hammered as he gently stretched out my arm, kissed the pulse at the crook of my elbow, and locked my wrist in the steel shackle. His nails trailed over my stomach, igniting a fire as he moved to my left side, repeating the locking ritual. Electricity hummed along my flushed skin.

Once he secured both of my arms, he attached each of the ankle cuffs. Like a starved lioness, I feasted on the ensuing adrenaline rush.

Bartholomew spread the leg supports wide, sending a rush of cool air over my heated core. With hands on hips, he admired his handiwork.

Spread and completely exposed, helplessness washed over me. A sigh slipped past my parted lips. I’m so yours.

“This is how you are meant to be, Francesca.” He stalked closer, pinched an erect nipple. “You’re gorgeous chained up. All mine.”

I released a moan of desire, powerless to do anything but bask in the pleasure of my submission.

#MySexySaturday: Seven Paragraphs of Steamy Goodness From Me to You #erotic #BDSM #Dark

LynnSexySaturday_button

Welcome to the Book Nook and thanks for stopping by for my first Sexy Saturday post. I am hoping to make this a weekly blog feature. Let’s just hope I can stick to that. Sometimes the best laid plans…

Anyway, the idea behind this particular feature is to post 7 paragraphs, sentences or words from a WIP or published work. This week I’ve decided to feature seven paragraphs from a published work — my erotic horror novella, BLOOD AND FIRE.

Here is my teaser for this week:

Rock music filled my ears as we stepped into the large, open space. The scent of sex and leather permeated the air. Massive crystal chandeliers hung from the twenty-foot ceiling. The tiny prisms caught strobe lights stationed throughout the room cast redacted rainbows onto the walls. A giant circular fountain presented a well-endowed statue of a male angel–like the ones at the front walk–dominated the center of the gymnasium sized room. The winged man stood with his arms and face lifted to the sky. A steady stream of water arched from his insanely large manhood into the shimmering pool.

The entire space swam with humanity. One mass gyrated on the lighted floor at the base of two ten foot speakers. The dancers, in every conceivable manner of fetish gear–some naked like me–writhed and ground against one another. A man crawled past on his mistresses leash sporting a studded collar and a headpiece of floppy dog ears. A butt plug with an attached tail wagged to and fro.

Kevin moved further into the crowd. The short leash set my brisk pace as I followed behind. We passed a live incarnation of the Monopoly man, complete with top hat and monocle, but instead of a suit, he wore an adult diaper. I sucked in a breath, yanking my open-mouthed gaze from the black hat bobbing through the crowd, as leather brushed across my nipples.

The scruffy, round man I bumped into flashed a grin and grabbed a handful of my ass.

With a shiver of revulsion, I gulped and scurried to keep up with Kevin.

Fetish stations lined the walls. A small group surrounded a naked man strapped to a spanking bench, where a woman in a vinyl cat suit worked his ass with a large glass dildo. Naked cocktail servers, male and female, carried drink-laden trays high over their heads. At the far end of the room marble steps rose to a red-carpeted dais with a St Andrew’s cross at its center. The spotlight at its base cast an eerie shadow on the overlooking stained glass windows. As I trailed behind Kevin, the cross drew my eyes. I wondered what it would be like to be strapped to it, have everyone’s eyes on me as a flogger kissed my back and burned welts down my ass and thighs. My heel caught in a tile crack, and I stumbled sideways–the jerk on my throat returned my attention to the present.

Kevin glanced back. “Stay with me, kitten.” He seemed to have a specific location in mind as he weaved his way through the maze of flesh and leather. He came to a halt at a collection of couches at the right of the carpeted dais.

Now that I have you all curious and foaming for more (or something like that), here are the details on the work:

#SexySnippets: Coming Face to Face with Master Amazing #erotic #BDSM #BloodandFire

Per my usual, I’m a bit late in posting my snippet today. I really need to pay more attention to my post times… Apologies.

Without more delay or ado, here is my seven sentence snippet, which comes to you from my most recent solo erotic release, BLOOD AND FIRE.

When the bartender returned, I grabbed the vodka tonic in one hand and my soda in the other. I nodded toward Matt. “Grab a few extra napkins, will ya?”

“Allow me.”

The rich honey baritone dripped down my spine, calling my nipples to attention and jumpstarting a throb between my already wet thighs. I knew its source without turning around.

I took a deep breath and faced Master Amazing.

#SexySnippets: Meet Master Bartholomew #BloodandFire #Erotic #Horror #BDSM

snippets button

Welcome back for another week if Sexy Snippets, where we post seven steamy sentences from a WIP or published work. With vacation last week, I didn’t get a chance to visit with the other participants last week, and I really missed my weekly dose of teasers. Not this Sunday. Yay me 🙂

Blood and Fire CoverFor my posting this week, I’ve decided to dip back into Blood and Fire, and bring you all a little taste of the dark, sexy and extremely dominant, Bartholomew Andrews to you all. Here is seven sentences from BLOOD AND FIRE featuring Master Bartholomew, or as Frankie has aptly nicknamed him, “Master Amazing”. You’ll have to let me know in the comments if you agree with her or not.

 The desperate swing of my gaze froze when it caught on the nearby dais.

Beside the St Andrew’s Cross, at the top of the marble stairs, stood the most perfect man I’d ever seen. Hooded by thick lashes any woman would envy, eyes the color of a summer sky scanned the crowded room from beneath a wild mop of jet black curls.

My gaze slid down his smooth chiseled chest, over a washboard stomach, and focused on the silver belt buckle topping his black trousers. It shimmered beneath the flashing strobes, drawing my attention while hiding what I hungered to see most. My eyes swept back to his glorious face, eager to devour more of his dark beauty.

I met with Master Amazing’s penetrating stare.

A gasp tore from my throat.

Mmm…mmm.mmmmmm Tasty vittles, I tell ya.

Once again, my Sunday post is just a bit late. I’m still getting used to posting up for UK times as many of the authors involved are from there.
Promise I will get better as we go 🙂

This week’s snippet is brought to you by my most recent erotic release, Blood and Fire.

His strong fingers gripped my chin. “Look at me, Frankie.”

I flexed and unflexed my fingers like a pressure release valve as I lifted my eyes to his. The intensity of his gaze tied my squirming guts into a knot.

“Bartholomew would like you to join him this evening.” Kevin’s tone matched his eyes. He expected no argument.

Blood and Fire is a dark erotica/erotic horror story featuring BDSM and D/s elements.

#WickedWednesday: Something to heat up a chilly afternoon. #excerpt #erotic #dark

Wicked_Banner

Welcome to the first post of what I am hoping will turn into a weekly feature here at the Book Nook. Each Wednesday, I will be posting a wicked excerpt from a released or soon to be released story/novella/novel. They won’t all be my stories, as I am hoping to wrangle some other erotic authors to participate in the coming weeks.

Just a little something to get you through the Hump Day with a smile on your face.

Today’s Wicked Excerpt comes from my most recent erotic release, Blood and Fire.

He moved his hand to the other knob and gave it a twist, until both of my breasts ached in time with the whims of the device in his hand. I groaned in anguished pleasure. My center begged for penetration, evidenced by the juices that made the long trek down my legs, finally reaching my ankles. My hands balled to fists. “Please…Master.”

Bartholomew crouched before me and set the box on the floor between my spread legs.

My eyes followed his movements, watched the flex of his broad, muscled shoulders. His dark head leaned forward, inhaled the scent of my desire in a long sniff. As his fingers spread my soaking folds, tremors shuddered through me. Lifting his eyes to mine, he ran a finger over my swollen nub. Prickles of fire spiraled outward from my pussy, and a cry of pleasure ripped from my throat.

His hand dropped away. Bartholomew rose, towering over me again. The power of his presence rendered me drunk. “Not yet, slave. I won’t take you under false pretenses. Even the Fallen have honor.”

The Fallen? My head came forward until my eyes met his. I tried to find the part of my brain that processed speech. The electric pulses shuddering into my nipples continued to distract me. “What?” The word came out as barely a whisper.

A typhoon of sapphire waves churned in his eyes as the electrodes tore away from my breasts with a jolt. My muscles tensed. The air caught in my lungs.

“It’s time to lift the veil, Francesca.”

The dark tone of his words stabbed into my soul. What veil? I’m naked.

Bartholomew crushed my mouth with his, scattering all productive thought.

My fear disintegrated beneath the onslaught of his lips, and the taste of his tongue as it branded mine. Heat, sparked by his mouth, slid downward, like I’d swallowed a glowing ember. The spark settled in my stomach, and caught flame, spreading through me like a windblown brushfire.

If you are interested in reading more about Frankie’s experiences with Master Bartholomew, here is where you can get a copy.

#SexySnippets: The Three Ds of Animal Attraction #BloodandFire #snippet

snippets button

Welcome to the blog for another installment of Sexy Snippets. I’ve been thinking about this a bit, and I owe you all a bit of an apology. Being the title of this themed post is “SEXY” snippets, I should be posting some sexier tidbits (to avoid using snippets again – writer issues).

To that end, I have changed things up.

bloodandfire200x300

Rather than posting an excerpt from my current WIP, since the MCs haven’t moved to the sexy part of their relationship yet, I decided I would give you seven steamy sentences from my most recent erotic release, BLOOD AND FIRE.

I absolutely loved writing Bartholomew, the hunky hero in this dark tale. He is one of my favorite fictional men. Dark and dangerous — oh, and dominant. Hehe — the three Ds of animal attraction.

Anyway, here’s the snippet 🙂

Frozen dread had seized me by the time Bartholomew laid me on the satin sheets with gentleness. His gossamer wings blocked my view of the carnage, the truth he’d allowed me to see. Anger churned in the pit of my stomach as I looked up at him.

Bartholomew shook his head, dark eyes bottomless. “No, no, my love. That fate is not for you.”

I concentrated on the concern etched on his brow, the sound of the air rushing in and out of my lungs, the beat of my heart–anything to blot out the visions of death that tried to burn poison into my soul.

One of my favorite parts of the story. Hope you enjoyed. 🙂

Happy Sunday!

New Release News: Blood and Fire by R. Brennan (@bexbrennan) Now Available! @Musepublishing

Today I get to share some New Release News near and dear to my heart. Why? Because today is release day for my Erotic Horror short, BLOOD AND FIRE!! *cue confetti and fanfare*

Originally released in 2011 as part of an erotic horror anthology, Sinisterotica — which a total of maybe fifteen people read, I am so pleased to have a chance to offer this story (one of my favorites) to a (hopefully) broader audience.

** NOTE: The information contained below relates to an erotic work of fiction. If you are under 18 or offended by such things, please do not read further. Thank you. **

Let’s take a closer look at this steamy erotic release, shall we?

bloodandfire200x300 Blurb: College student, Francesca Morgan has finally met the Dominant man of her dreams. Kevin Stevenson is sexy, sure of himself, and knows just how to make her knees quake.

When he takes Frankie to her first fetish party, she is reminded being collared means her Master can do what he wishes with her, including offering her “services” for the evening to a sexy Dominant business associate he is trying to impress.

It doesn’t take long for Frankie to realize their host, Bartholomew Andrews is nothing like any Dom she has ever served. Aside from his devastating looks and heaping financial fortune, Bartholomew can read her thoughts, and knows just how to make her body react.

Can Frankie keep her wits about her and serve at his feet without falling for him, or will Master Amazing steal her heart and her soul in one steamy night of servitude?

Be warned — Contains elements of horror, BDSM, S&M, and a Dom/sub dynamic

Excerpt: I fidgeted with my black lace garter for the third time in five minutes. No matter how much I toyed with it, the torturous material tickled my inner thighs until I resort to scratching like a flea-infested hound. Through sheer force of will, I stopped gouging at my leg, and with a quick twist and pull, adjusted my g-string, which attempted to crawl higher than any butt floss should go. Tweaking complete, I checked my appearance in the bathroom mirror.

The red satin teddy clung to hourglass curves and highlighted my green eyes, just as I’d hoped when picking it out. The bodice’s built-in push up bra did wonders for the little ladies—an added bonus. I swept a few unruly, blonde strands of hair from my face and took stock of the make-up situation. Rosy cheeks. Check. Black eye gunk. Check.

I inhaled through my nose, and with puffed cheeks, blew out through my mouth—a stress relief trick I learned watching daytime TV. But, the nervous tension remained knotted between my shoulder blades.

I guess it’s time to see if I have the balls to wear this getup in public.

Stiffening my bare shoulders, I turned away from the mirror and left the bathroom, stopping just short of barreling into Mallory.

“Jesus, Mal.” My hands found my silk clad hips. “You couldn’t wait in the living room? I told you I’d be out in a minute.”

“Sorry, but you’ve been in there for ages, Frankie.”

Holding my hands out to my sides, I turned in a circle. “Well? What do you think?”

The only woman on the planet I actually trusted appraised me from top to bottom. “Let me see your ass again.”

With a quick turnabout, I wiggled my rear at her and peeked over my shoulder to see if she approved.
