Stone Chameleon Blog Tour: Find out what author, Jocelyn Adams (@JocelynAdams) would chose as her special talent. #UF

SC Tour Button

Welcome to the blog and my stop on the STONE CHAMELEON Blog Tour. I am beyond excited to be able to share the start of  my good friend, Jocelyn Adams’ newest Urban Fantasy series about the Ironhill Jinn.

If you are a regular follower of the blog, you know how much I loved Ms. Adams first UF series, The Lila Gray novels. As a matter of fact, I am not sure I am over the end of that one yet, having just read the ARC for the final installment of that trilogy, due out in June of this year (you are going to love that one, too!).

But, today we are all about the new series, and based on the ARC I finished a few weeks ago, you are all if for another treat. If you liked Lila, wait till you meet Lou. *grins*

JocelynAdams (2)Anyway, for my stop on the tour, Ms. Adams and I wanted to do something a little different. Something fun. So I came up with a question for my author friend, that I thought fit nicely into the Urban Fantasy theme.

I got to thinking about the stories I’ve read of Jocelyn’s and her process for writing them. I considered the imagination and creativity woven into every paragraph and came up with this question for our guest author. (Which she was kind enough to answer, of course :P)

As a fantasy author, you write a lot of stories about characters with “special gifts” or unique talents. If you were given a choice, what special gift or talent would you like to have in real life? Why?

Jocelyn’s answer: 

Oh my, so much to choose from.  As I’ve been sitting here, pondering this, I keep coming back to one of my favorite cartoons/movies/comics, the X-Men.  It would be a total toss-up between Wolverine and Mystique.

Being able to heal anything, live forever, and have some kick-ass adamantium claws that slice out whenever I was ticked off would be so awesome.  Of course, I’d need Wolverine’s giant chip on his shoulder as well so the world would simply get out of my way.  🙂

Or, like Mystique, I could change myself into anybody at will.  Wouldn’t that be neat?  Go out as somebody famous or sneak into a bank as the manager and withdraw a few mil.  Not that I’d do that, of course, just saying.  Hmm, choices, choices.  Why not both? 😉

* * * * * 

That would be one kick ass mutant. *grins* I LOVED X-Men, and Wolverine is among my list of favorites. Though, I have a soft spot for Gambit, personally.

So, let’s have a look at Jocelyn’s newest release, STONE CHAMELEON

stonechameleonBlurb:

When a series of unusual murders point to Lou Hudson, Ironhill’s equal rights advocate, as the primary suspect, she has but one choice: find the real perpetrator before her trial begins or face execution.

Lou, the last of the jinn, survives by hiding her abilities after the rest of the elementals fell victim to genocide. As a preternatural pest exterminator and self-proclaimed guardian of the innocent, she’s accustomed to trudging through the dregs of society. Hunting down a pesky murderer should be easy, especially with help from the dashing and mischievous local media darling.

For Lou, though, nothing is ever simple. When she discovers the killer’s identity, to reveal it would unearth her secret and go against her strict moral code, resulting in a deadly catch twenty-two.

#SexySnippets: Called to Serve #erotic #BDSM #Horror #BloodandFire

snippets button

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.

Blood and Fire Cover Description:  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 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 both her heart and her soul in one steamy night of servitude?

#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. 🙂

Be sure to stop by the SEXY SNIPPETS page and visit with the other authors offering some steamy Sunday treats for you all. Who knows, you just may find your next favorite author.

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.
