EP BDay BH button

Celebrate like a ROCK STAR because Evernight Publishing is THREE!

In three short years, Evernight has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to readers like you! Evernight is pulling out all the stops and throwing an extreme BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP in your honor!

That’s right! It’s Evernight’s birthday but YOU get the presents…

Prizes include:

Samsung Galaxy Tab

Kindle Paperwhite

Kobo Touch

$100 Evernight and Amazon Gift Certificates

Mega Evernight Swag Pack

Plus, each author on the hop will offer his/her own special prize!

As an author, I’m thrilled to share my stories with you and Evernight helps make my books shine! Here’s one reason why I love Evernight Publishing:

I’ve been submitting my erotic stories for the past two years and Evernight Publishing has been my favorite publisher to date. Why?

Because aside from the great authors they have, many of whom have become good friends, their staff is second to none when it comes to offering support to their authors. Not once have I felt shuffled off or ignored, and in a business that can be cutthroat at time, it is quite a refreshing change. That sort of loyalty is one of the biggest reasons I think so many of their authors stick with them. We feel like part of the family. Not just as a slogan or catch phrase, but genuinely involved.

I love that about Evernight.

I’m over the moon excited to have a chance to take part in their 3rd Birthday celebration.

For my little part of the hop, I have decided to host a Rafflecopter giveaway of my own — offering entrants a chance at a $10 Evernight Publishing Gift Card as the Grand Prize, and a runner-up prize of the winner’s choice of either of my Evernight titles — Vanilla-Free Christmas or a Leap of Faith.

So you have an idea what you can win there, here is the info on each of the titles being offered as prizes. If you are interested in grabbing a copy rather than waiting to see if you won, click on the book images in the right sidebar and they will take you to the purchase pages for each title.


VANILLA-FREE CHRISTMAS (An Evernight Anthology)

This Christmas, the best gifts are waiting for those who have been naughty…

And the toys under the tree are not for children. Sexy Santas, naughty elves, and dominant shifters are ready to spread some very kinky Christmas cheer. It’s a good thing the ladies in our stories are looking for anything but vanilla.

Roses and Thorns, 1

New submissive, Faith Daniels, is completely infatuated with her amazing Dominant, Richard Halstead. So when he sends her a summons via text message a full day before they had plans to meet, she can barely contain her excitement.

But, Richard didn’t just invite her over for a play date. Not this time. He has a proposition for Faith. One that could change the rest of her life.

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, pet play

#BookBoyfriend Blog Hop: Meet NYC Dominant, Richard Halstead


Book Boyfriends…

The authors of Evernight invite you to a Speed Date challenge. Their cowboys, Doms, detectives, millionaires, royalty, vampires, soldiers, shifters, even steam-powered heroes are waiting to meet you on each author website. 50 heroes in 7 days! Are you up for the challenge?

* * * * *

Welcome to my stop on Evernight Publishing’s Book Boyfriend Blog Hop. Unlike many of the other authors you’ll meet in perusing the participants of this blog Hop, I have only one story published with Evernight at this point in time. So for me, there was only one “boyfriend” to introduce you to — the hero of FAITH’S GIFT (Vanilla-Free Christmas), Richard Halstead.


I guess it’s a damned good thing Richard is a cut above most men. Not only a successful NYC businessman, he’s quick witted, roguishly handsome, of course, and an Alpha male all the way. The lifestyle dominant has no problems going after what he wants — in and out of the bedroom. Not a bad choice to be stuck with, don’t you think?

He made quite a splash with the ladies in my Vanilla-Free Christmas tale, FAITH’S GIFT, so Richard Halstead and his sweet submissive, Faith will be making another appearance in my May 2013 Evernight Romance on the Go title, A LEAP OF FAITH.

Meaning there is more of this hunky Dominant on the horizon. *wicked grin*


Here is my “pitch” for Richard — who by all rights should be selected as your favorite “Book Boyfriend”. I’m sure you’ll agree once you’ve read the rest of this post.

The following excerpts are all taken from FAITH’S GIFT by R. Brennan – Vanilla-Free Christmas Anthology.

Available from Evernight Publishing HERE.)

Faith glanced down at the dog who’d taken position at her feet. She gave the fluff at the top of his thick head a scratch. “Laura was right, Hercules, the view is really amazing.”

“I agree completely.”

Faith jumped and spun about. Her scream died in her throat.

The most beautiful man she’d ever encountered stood across the room from her, clad in nothing but a fluffy, white towel. Wet, black hair dripped onto broad, bronzed shoulders. The tiny rivulets of water chased each other down the hard lines of his chest, drawing her gaze along washboard ridges of a firm stomach.

Swallowing hard, Faith forced her gaze away from perfect abs, back to the man’s equally distracting face. Her heart hammered against her ribcage as she gauged the distance between herself and the front door.

Poor Faith. She never stood a chance, really. If his rugged good looks aren’t enough to persuade you, perhaps we should take a closer look at Richard’s quick wit and charm.

“I should really get going, Mr. Halstead.” She reached down and grabbed her bag. “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. 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.” The deep timbre of his voice made her shiver.

She wrinkled her nose. He did have a point. And besides that, what did she have to run home to? Certainly nothing as attractive or interesting as the male specimen standing in front of her. Laura’s most recent admonishments echoed in her mind—Live a little, take a chance. If Faith were brutally honest with herself, she had no real desire to leave—at least not yet. A prickle of warning jabbed at her spine, but she ignored it. “I guess you’re right.”

“Good, then you’ll stay.” Richard turned and headed to the mirrored bar built into the wall near a huge flat screen TV. He poured himself a drink from one of the crystal decanters and glanced over his shoulder at her. “Would you like one?”

See what I mean? Faith never had a chance at resisting a man like Richard Halstead. Still not convinced? Seriously?

Alright, time for the big guns… Richard’s secret weapon — his smooth, commanding Dominance…

He hadn’t moved. He just stood there, his intense green gaze devouring her.

With insides squirming and cheeks burning hot, Faith unbuckled her pants, slid them down to her ankles, and stepped out of the legs. They joined her blouse on the floor. Standing upright, she thanked the heavens she actually bothered to wear matching panties.

“Undergarments need to go as well. I want to see every inch of you.”

After a slight hesitation to gather her courage, Faith’s bra and panties joined the growing pile of discarded clothing. She stood before him, arms folded protectively over her bare breasts. Her weight shifted from left to right as he continued staring at her. God. Did I do something wrong?

“Good girl,” Richard said finally, breaking the tenuous silence. “I want you to lock your fingers behind your head. Be proud of what you offer, Faith. You are a gorgeous woman.”

She swore she blushed all the way to her toes. “Thank you, Sir.”

“Turn around.”

Faith took a deep breath and swung about. Just knowing he watched her, inspected her, gave her chills of excitement.

She let loose a gasp of shock when his warm hand caressed the curve of her hip and slid upward along her waistline, sending shivers of pleasure through her limbs. “On your knees, Faith.”

She quivered at the command in his words and tried to ignore the dampness growing between her thighs.

*swoon* I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m convinced. Richard Halstead is my choice of Book Boyfriend.

Don’t you agree?

Good 🙂

#SexySnippets: Time to Heat Things Up #erotic #Ds #BDSM

snippets button

Welcome back to the Book Nook for another installment of Sexy Snippets. This week, I’ve decided to heat things up with a tiny teaser from my story from Vanilla Free Christmas, FAITH’s GIFT, since I am working on a longer follow up tale with a much naughtier bent.

THIS EXCERPT IS FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY. You have been warned — in all CAPS, no less. 🙂

“You’re absolutely gorgeous when you’re in pain. A wonderful surprise for me, but quite dangerous for you.”

She stiffened. Would he really hurt her? To that point, even the things he’d done to her that had caused pain had also brought intense pleasure.

Richard stroked her cheek. “Don’t panic, lamb. I’m too set on fucking you at the moment to do much else.”

I have to agree with the ladies. Richard makes my knees wobbly. What do you think? I love comments and feedback, so feel free to share your thoughts.

Make sure you visit with the others offering SEXY SNIPPETS this week.

Happy Sunday.

#SexySnippets: A Peak at the First Time #erotica #BDSM

snippets button

Today I decided I would share a bit of my piece from Vanilla-Free Christmas, Faith’s Gift. I’ve been working on plotting a follow up story featuring tasty NYC Dom, Richard Halstead and his new submissive, Faith Daniels.

In this snippet,  Richard has brought Faith into his “special room” for the first time so he can “grab a few things…

“And I just say that if I want you to stop?” She cast a worried glance at the giant cross.

“Yes.” Richard tested the collar’s length around her throat, turned back to the wall, removed a different one, and repeated the process. “Lift your hair for me.”

She did as instructed, and he placed the collar around her neck. She put her chin to her chest so he could fasten the buckle.

Can’t wait to dive into more from Richard and Faith. How bout you?

Hope to see you again next week 🙂

Six Sentence Sunday: A Taste of Faith’s Gift #sixsunday

Since I am still celebrating my contract signing with Evernight Publishing, I figured I would post another little tease from my Christmas story, FAITH’S GIFT. This week, I have put the focus on Richard Halstead, the oh so yummy Dominant stranger.

“Patience,” he warned, holding her in place. “Good things come to those who wait.”
Frustration wormed its way into her chest. “You started it.”
Richard chuckled and released her. “True enough, but I’m afraid you’re in over your head. I’m having terribly impure thoughts at the moment.”

So, what do you think of Richard? As always, your comments and impressions are welcome.

Happy Sunday. Thanks for stopping by 😀

Faith’s Gift Has Been Contracted by Evernight Publishing (@evernightpub)! #erotica #BDSM

That’s right, you heard it here. I have finally managed to write a story worthy of the publisher my Pen Sisters, Lila Shaw and Kastil Eavenshade have been raving about — Evernight Publishing.

FAITH’S GIFT, a romantic, erotic short with strong BDSM elements has been accepted and contracted to be included in Evernight’s Christmas kink anthology, Vanilla-Free Christmas.

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!)
