Evernight Publishing Love Scene Blog Hop and #Giveaway #ValentinesDay #Erotic #Romance


Welcome to the Book Nook. So glad you could stop by for my little piece of Evernight Publishing’s Love Scene Blog Hop. I am quite excited to have you here. *happy dance*

Since the theme of this HOP is love scenes, I thought I would share with you a bit of a love scene from my latest Evernight release, LOCK, STOCK, and SPANK HER, which is one of 6 stories in Evernight’s Crimson Rope anthology… which by the way, was a Predator’s and Editors Top 10 Erotic Romance for 2013. *cue confetti*

Pay special attention to the little clip I post, as there will be a question asked at the end. One you must answer in the comments to be qualified for my giveaway.

Bet you’re wondering now what I am giving away… welp, this time around I am offering one lucky winner the choice of any eBook from my backlist, as well as a $10 Evernight Publishing Gift Card.

Here is your teaser first…

* * * *

While the collar he’d made Mia was breathtaking, Beth decided she would much prefer the pretty blue sapphires in the pile than the emerald jewels that adorned that one. She picked one up, held it up to the light and marveled at the way the gem sparkled, tossing its refracted color onto the plain white walls.

“They are almost as beautiful as you are. Almost.”

Beth dropped the sapphire stone on the dresser and whipped about. “I didn’t hear you come in.”

His grin jumpstarted her pulse. “Yes, I see that.” He crossed to her in three long strides, his proximity stealing all the air from the room, and her lungs. “Hello, angel. I’m so glad you came.”

“Hello again, Sir.”

Before she could say another word, think another thought, Alexander grabbed her and pulled her into his arms. His mouth crushed hers in a bruising kiss.

Beth melted against him, her arms sliding up to encircle his neck. She welcomed the feel of his body pressed against hers and savored the taste of his forceful lips.

Alexander growled and pressed forward, backing Beth against the wall beside the dresser. His hands found her wrists and pinned them above her head while his mouth continued to ravish hers. He held her wrists immobile with one hand, the other sliding down her side to the hem of her skirt. With minimal effort, he managed to hike it up above her waist. Hot lips kissed a trail of fire along the column of her throat. His voice vibrated against her racing pulse. He drew back enough to capture her gaze, his lips curling in a wicked grin. “Now that we’ve gotten the vanilla out of the way.”

She gasped for air, desperate for the feel of his hands on her body. “Take me, Sir. Please.” Her voice was little more than a whimper.

Growling, he captured her lower lip with his teeth, held it for a heart beat, and released it. “Oh, I intend to, angel.” Alexander grabbed hold of her wrist and drew her with him to the bed, dropping onto it as he hauled her against him. With a hand to her back, and a twist of her torso, Alexander had her positioned across his thighs, ass in the air, and hair hanging about her in a tawny curtain that reached to the floor. “But, first, we have some unfinished business. You still have two more coming, girl. A good master never forgets.”

Evernight’s Valentine’s Snippets Blog Hop and #Giveaway

Welcome to the blog for my stop on the Evernight Valentine’s Snippets Blog Hop. This hop is a bit different than the usual in there is no huge major prize given by EP, though the Evernight Publishing sites are giving away some gift vouchers, but the participant blogs are giving away individual, more personal prizes. A bit more intimate for the Valentine’s holiday, dontcha think?

In sticking with the more “personal” theme, instead of the eBook copy I generally give away for these hops, this time I have changed things up a bit.

For the Valentine’s Hop, I am giving away what I think is a kickin’ physical prize  — a selection of Valentine’s Day love from me to you, including — Godiva Valentines Truffles, an adorable stuffed Valentine’s Day owl , and a cute, candy-filled frog prince.


You must be a resident of the US or CANADA to be eligible to win this particular prize, so I thought I would also offer a second treat for international visitors.

VFC1MINTERNATIONAL entrants will be entered to win an eBook copy of Vanilla-Free Christmas, featuring my story, FAITH’S GIFT (along with 8 other kinky Christmas tales). You must be 18+ to win either prize, since you have to read an excerpt from an erotic story and comment to qualify.

So, I bet you are wondering what you need to do to be entered to win these great prizes. Right?

It’s Easy Cheesy.

Just read the excerpt from my most recent release, Blood and Fire below and  answer my question at the end in the BLOG COMMENTS. Then visit the Rafflecopter Link on my website to register your entry and that’s it!

(Since WordPress is a butt about javascript on their free blogs, I have to redirect you to my main website to see the Rafflecopter giveaway, but it’s right HERE.)

Blood and Fire CoverNow, for the Excerpt: (Mature Audiences Only)

The heat of Bartholomew’s presence grabbed my attention from the crowd as his voice tickled my ear. “You don’t belong down there with the huddled masses, Francesca. Your place is up here, with me.”

Writhing beneath the caress of his words, I ground my bottom against the wood supporting it.Yes. Yes. Yes. After a few swallows and a fish-mouthed attempt at speech, I could only nod. Yes, Master!

Bartholomew stepped away, a cool rush of air marking his movement. When he reappeared, electrical wires dangled from his hands. He attached white adhesive patches to each side of my aching nipples before capturing the nub between his teeth.

Sucking in my breath, I leaned toward his mouth.

When he’d finished wiring me up, he straightened and smiled while tracing a finger down my stomach.

I glanced at the patches. Electrical play was a new game. My chest resembled a heart attack patient on an upright emergency room gurney.

Bartholomew attached the wires to a black box with dials on it. His eyes captured mine. He clicked two knobs, his lips curling in a grin. “You’ll like this one. His fingers twisted one of the dials.

*fans self* Great scene, if I do say so myself.

If you haven’t gotten enough and want to pick up a copy of Blood and Fire so you can read the rest of the steamy scene sampled above, here is where you can get it:
