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*)

But for now, here is a Sunday tease from my Romance on the Go title, A LEAP OF FAITH. (Mature audiences only, please)

“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. 🙂

#SexySnippets: More flavor from the #WIP #BDSM #Erotic

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. 😛

#SexySnippets: A Taste of My Current WIP #Erotic #BDSM

Welcome to another installment of Sexy Snippets. Sorry for my late posting this morning. I had a little bit of trouble getting up and moving this Sunday.

But, without further delay, here are my seven sentences for this week, brought to you from my current WIP, A Test of Faith (WT). In this scene, Richard is enjoying an evening with his new submissive, Faith.

Led by the leash, Faith crawled forward a few feet.

“Here is good.” Richard crouched down, pulled the chain taut, and attached the end to something on the floor, trapping her in place. He tested the chain, giving it a yank to ensure it wouldn’t pull free from whatever he’d tethered her to.

Faith had enough room to move her head slightly left or right, but she couldn’t lift it higher than her shoulders and she couldn’t back up. A sense of helplessness washed over her, stealing her breath. Her heart thundered against her ribcage.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Be sure to swing by the other blogs participating in SEXY SNIPPETS this week.

Happy Sunday and welcome to my little corner of Sexy Snippets. Where we share seven sentences from a published work or WIP.

This week, I started writing a sequel to Faith’s Gift, my story in Evernight Publishing’s Vanilla-Free Christmas Anthology. Here’s a small taste to tantalize you this day of rest and rejuvenation.

In this snippet, Richard and Faith are enjoying an evening together. Faith is currently collared and blindfolded.

NOTE: The below excerpt is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.

His whisper came low and husky in her ear, puckering her nipples. “Hands and knees, pet. It’s time for dinner.”

Curiosity danced with fear as Faith lowered to her knees, leaned forward and pressed her palms to the carpet. It took effort to keep her breathing even as she waited in the black silence. Her skin tingled in anticipation of his touch. With no panties to absorb her arousal, moisture slicked her inner thighs.

Mmmm…mmm… Gotta love that Richard Halstead. 🙂 I know I do.

What do you think? I love feedback, so feel free to share your thoughts below.

Be sure to swing by the other sites sharing snippets for you this week. You can find the list of participants HERE. Or you can just click the banner at the top of the post, if that’s easier for you.

Thanks for coming by and happy Sunday!

Six Sentence Sunday: BDSM and Kink are HOT #duh #sixsunday

For my first post back in the swing of things for Six Sentence Sunday, I thought I would stir things up a bit, and maybe turn the heat up with a little snipit of the erotic short I just finished.

The story was written for a Kinky Christmas anthology, and I am still waiting on word of an acceptance or rejection, but in light of all the talk and hype lately with respect to kink and BDSM in fiction, I figured I would join in on the fun. This is part of a scene between the two main characters, Faith Daniels and Richard Halstead. (BTW — Hercules is Richard’s Saint Bernard)

Without further delay, here is my six sentences for this week:

“I’ll just come back tomorrow at the same time.” Faith glanced at Hercules. “As long as you promise not to growl at me again.”

“Yes, you’re right. Absolutely,” Richard agreed. ” I’m sure it’s much safer to ride the subway this late than to take a well meaning stranger up on his offer of kindness.”

You have to keep an eye on that Richard, he can be pretty convincing when he wants to be…so like a Dom 😛

As always, I would love to hear your comments or thoughts on the excerpt. Feel free to share.

Oh, and while you’re at it, please make sure to click the image at the top of the post or visit and visit with the other authors participating in this week’s Six Sentence Sunday event.

Thanks so much for stopping in. See you next time.
