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.
Release Day Blitz: Welcome to Paradise by London Saint James (@LJSRomance) #western #romance #erotic
Description: Just three days before her thirtieth birthday, Acquisition Editor for Starling Press, Sutton Callaway, has buried the last of her family in the cemetery on the plot of land she inherited.
After turning down the powerful and wealthy owner of Triple Bar-S Ranch to sell her inheritance and walk away from the obligations of running one of the biggest cattle ranches in West Texas, Sutton puts her Dallas condo on the market, resigns her position from SP, packs the contents of her life into boxes, and heads for the one place filled with bittersweet memories—Paradise Ranch.
Will Sutton be able to handle the pressures of being the newly appointed cattle baroness, the rough and tumble men under her employ, and the temptation of a sexy mystery man? Or will her grandmother’s matriarchal boots be too big for her to fill?

That’s right blog followers, it is Sexy Snippets Sunday yet again, and since I managed to remember to sign up this week, I have seven steamy sentences to share with you today.
In an effort to spark my desire to write a bit more of this particular piece, I have decided to share seven sentences from a WIP I have going (one of many, as usual). The work doesn’t yet have a title, but it will be part of the new CATACOMBS series I have hatched in my dirty little brain.
Would love to know what you think.
“Where is she going?” Mister Chauncey asked.
“Helen told her to shadow me,” Alice cast a smile of reassurance at her [Justine]. “She said Justine should know what she’s getting herself into.”
“Did she now?” His slow, dark perusal swept over a nervous Justine from tip to toe, his eyes devouring her where she stood. “What if I say she isn’t ready, Alice?”
Alice lifted pale shoulders in a shrug. “Then she isn’t ready, sir.”

Welcome to my better late than never Sexy Snippets post for this week. With the holiday, I didn’t get a chance to schedule this post ahead of time, so I am coming to you love from a chilly and rainy weekend at my campsite in Upstate NY, I’ve dubbed Camp Tortuga.
This week’s snippet comes from my current erotic WIP, which doesn’t have a title yet, but will be part of what I am calling the Catacombs series. The story is set in England in 1720, so a historical.
The main character, Justine has recently arrived to work at Chauncey House, and this is her first experience with the private parlor behind the dining hall, an area she has been barred from entering. Until now.
Here are my seven unedited first draft sentences.
Eleanor danced closer, her hand sliding down her body as her eyes locked on Evan. She grabbed hold of one of the lengths of colored silk and pulled it free. She tossed the fluff of pink into the air above his head, and danced away with a teasing smile as the material fluttered down to settle in his lap. Another twirl and a few swaying steps in the other direction, and Eleanor pulled free another strip of silk, this time wrapping the ends around the neck of one of the salon’s male patrons. She used the scarf to pull the man to her. She kissed his cheek and released one end of the cloth while pulling it free of his shoulders with the other. Holding the end, she twirled on one foot.
Thanks, as always for stopping by and checking in with me. Be sure to swing by the SEXY SNIPPETS blog and visit with the other participants this week.
I’m so behind schedule this morning. My apologies to all for my inability to manage time properly.
This week, our Wicked Wednesday tidbit comes to us from Doris O’Connor’s most recent release, MR SATISFACTION GUARANTEED – NATASHA, which incidentally releases today. SO when you fall in love with the excerpt, you can go right out and order yourself a copy.
Today is today’s steamy excerpt: (MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY)
“Good girl. Keep holding on, face the mirrors, and spread your legs for me, pet.” His eyes connected with hers in the mirror, and the naked hunger on his face took her breath away. Her pussy clenched, and she whimpered when he stepped so close to her the heat of his skin burned into her exposed back.
“Here? Now?” she whispered, utterly unable to project the words with any conviction. He didn’t answer, just quirked one thick eyebrow and kicked her legs apart. His hand on her hips steadied her, and he pulled her dress up to her waist with the other. The slap on her ass stung and brought tears to her eyes. She bit her lip to stop herself from crying out, as several more sharp slaps followed. He hit a different spot on her butt every time, and Natasha lost all sense of time, as pain morphed into bliss, and her juices ran down her inner thigh. By the time he stopped, she was arching her back into each slap. He massaged her tender skin, eliciting another moan from her, and then wrapped his hand around the long ends of her wig.
SG tugged, and her eyes flew open in horror, but she needn’t have worried. His other hand grasped the top of her head to stop the wig from coming off as he tugged hard and grasped her shoulder. He pulled her head back until it rested against his shoulder, and his breath fanned her face.
“I’ve got you, my pet, and I’m going to fuck you so hard. Would you like that, my sweet little slut?” He pulled harder, his fingers digging into her shoulder, and he released her head and undid the buttons on his jeans with one hand. The hard length of his cock dug into her ass, and Natasha whimpered her need. She didn’t think the words she’d asked to be called would turn her on quite so much.
“Answer me, slut. Do you want me to fuck you hard? Can you see how slutty you look in these mirrors? Look at yourself.”
She did as he commanded, and she saw a woman flushed with arousal. With her dress around her waist, and her legs open wide, her swollen and wet pussy was on display. Her ass cheeks were red, his finger prints clearly visible, and her skin heated at the visible signs of his possession. Her huge, passion clouded eyes locked with his, as he continued to talk dirty to her. Words that no man should say to the woman they were about to fuck, but words that turned her on so much, she could feel her body climb, from listening to his gravelly voice alone.
At this moment in time she wasn’t Natasha, the cancer survivor, whom everyone treated with kid gloves. No, right now, she was a woman desired and at the mercy of her Dom. She allowed herself to let go, to enjoy the moment, and she moaned her denial when he released her briefly to free his cock and sheath himself with a condom.
*fans self* Completely intrigued, right? Same here.
Glutton for punishment would be a good description for Doris… at least that’s what she hears on an almost daily basis when people find out that she has a brood of nine children, ranging from adult to toddler and lives happily in a far too small house, cluttered with children, pets, dust bunnies, and one very understanding and supportive husband. Domestic goddess she is not.
There is always something better to do after all, like working on the latest manuscript and trying not to scare the locals even more than usual by talking out loud to the voices in her head. Her characters tend to be pretty insistent to get their stories told, and you will find Doris burning the midnight oil on a regular basis. Only time to get any peace and quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.
She likes to spin sensual, sassy, and sexy tales involving alpha heroes to die for, and heroines who give as good as they get. From contemporary to paranormal, BDSM to F/F, and Ménage, haunting love stories are guaranteed.

Welcome to the Book Nook for another installment of SEXY SNIPPETS, where we share 7 steamy sentences from a recent release or WIP.
I’ve decided to share a piece from the erotic romance follow-up to my anthology story, Faith’s Gift. I just finished the first draft of this one last night. I had been using a working title of A Test of Faith for it, but I’ve changed things up and I think I am going with the title: FAITH AND TRUST (I’m letting it ruminate a bit – not sure I’m in love with that yet).
I’ll be subbing it to Evernight Publishing over the coming days in the hopes they will accept it for their Romance on the Go line. (Hope I didn’t jynx myself)
Here is just a little teaser picked out especially for all you Richard Halstead fans out there.
Fingertip vices closed over her nipples and stretched them taut.
Faith gasped as lightning struck the hardened nubs.
“So responsive,” Richard breathed while his fingers twisted and pulled. He released her breasts, and leaned over her. His chiseled, bare chest brushed over the sensitive peaks as he settled over her, his cock teased her wet opening. “It’s Master’s turn.” He pulled the blindfold from her eyes.
*grins* I REALLY wanted to give you all just one more sentence… Richard’s response was stellar, but, alas, rules are rules. Maybe, I’ll give it to you next week. 🙂
Love to know what you think. Feel free to share. Oh, and if you have a title suggestion, or love the one I am using, I’d like to know that, too. 😛

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.
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. 🙂

Thanks for coming 🙂
The idea here is to share seven sentences from a work in progress, so I will be posting clips from an erotic fantasy romance series titled DESTINY’S TRIAL. Our main characters have just met, and this part is written from Domnu’s POV.
Here they are:
“While I appreciate your attempted chivalry, Sir.”
“Domnu,” he offered. “Name’s Domnu.”
Red showed no sign she’d heard him. “I assure you I’m no damsel, and do not require any rescuing from you today.”
Domnu lifted his shoulders in a shrug. “Suit yourself, Red.”
Sexual tension, anyone? Gotta love a heroine with attitude. 🙂

Things have been really hopping on the blog lately, and today is no different. The Book Nook has the pleasure of giving you the details on another fantastic Evernight Publishing release — this one is for Brooke’s Wish by Sandra Bunino (who happens to be one of my favorite Evernight authors)
** THIS STORY IS EROTIC IN NATURE AND THE INFORMATION BELOW IS FOR ADULTS 18 AND OLDER ONLY!!
Here are all the fantastic details about this new erotic romance release:
Title: BROOKE’S WISH (The Satin Rose Experience series)
Author: Sandra Bunino
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Genre: Erotic Romance (Romance on the Go)
Release Date: November 2, 2012
Blurb: A failed relationship and long hours at her flourishing practice have Dr. Brooke Allaire running on empty. When Brooke accepts a girlfriend’s gift of some holiday pampering at New York City’s posh Satin Rose Experience, she assumes she’s in for a weekend of facials and massages. Brooke soon realizes there’s more to SRE than meets the eye.
Ty Venice is a team player. He’s used to sharing submissives with fellow Dom Jackson Reid. However, if there was ever a game changer, Dr. Brooke Allaire was it. That is, until he gets a glimpse at her ultimate fantasy, to be possessed by two men at once.
The Satin Rose Experience, New York’s elite BDSM club residing on the twentieth floor of Rosebud Resorts, contains ten uniquely themed suites, each with its own story to tell. Fulfill your fantasy at SRE.
“W-who’s there?” Brooke croaked. She put her hands on her hips and straightened her back.
A low chuckle erupted. “Don’t panic, princess. It’s just me.”
Ty. She took a deep breath and smiled.
“Sorry, love. I got carried away taking in the sight of you like this. You look magnificent, Brooke.” His southern drawl was more distinct than the night before.
Warm hands stroked the bare skin under the negligee between the corset and her lace panties. She shivered from the light touch traveling up her back. He untied the ribbon at her neck and slipped the negligee off her shoulders. Heat radiated from his body as he moved to face her and pulled the blindfold from her eyes.
“Hi there,” he said huskily.
Her stomach fluttered when she looked into his eyes. It was a different look for Ty Venice. Thick stubble covered his cheeks and the area above his lip. She recalled how his whiskers scratched her cheeks the previous night and her face heated when she anticipated his stubble abrading the skin of her inner thighs. She lowered her eyelids to his bare shoulders. Her breath caught at the sight of his muscular chest and arms. Reaching out, she traced her fingertips over the outline of a detailed rose tattooed on the muscular curve of his bicep. A combination of musk and manliness filled her senses. She continued her gaze downward and followed a line of soft hair to the unfastened button of rumpled khaki pants. Brooke looked back to his face and he smiled seemingly enjoying watching her visual journey down his body.
“Hi.” She smiled back.
Ty hooked his thumb under her chin and lifted her face to his.
“I heard you requested me, love.” His lips were just a whisper away from hers. “Everything okay?” There was concern in his voice.
Brooke opened her mouth to speak but closed it again and nodded. Her heart beat wildly as his hand gently stroked her cheek.
BROOKE’S WISH is available here:
Sandra Bunino began a love of romance stories while penning a creative writing assignment in high school. The story ended with the heroine receiving a long stemmed red rose in her locker on Valentine’s Day. Since then, all of her stories feature the hero presenting the heroine with roses. Sandra is constantly searching for different ways to achieve a heart-pumping, stomach-flipping, breath-catching reaction from her readers.
Most of you know how much I enjoy writing kinky BDSM oriented stories, so this anthology was a no-brainer for me.
I am so absolutely excited to have earned a spot in the Evernight family and to join such amazing authors as Lila and Kastil, not to mention others like Sandra Bunino. So stoked!!
I don’t have a ton of details yet, nor do I know what other authors will be included in the anthology, but I promise to pass along any information I get.
In the meantime, Evernight has already added me to their Authors Page, so you can find my links and contact info — and hopefully at some point soon, get a look at some other titles I will have available through Evernight (yes, ya gotta dream big, baby!)
