What’s Your Color of Love? #coloroflove, #interracial, #multicultural, #books

Thursday, November 21st, 2013 | Blog Hop, Book Pimpage, Coming Soon, Contests | 8 Comments

Welcome to my stop on the Cover of Love Blog Hop.

ColorofLove_Bloghop

Personally…I love love in all its many facets and shades. It’s one of the reasons I write multicultural and interracial romance. I firmly believe that people should have the choice to date and marry whoever they want to and not be ridiculed for it.

Right now my FAVORITE show on television features an interracial relationship (although taboo because he’s married) which in reality everyone should really HATE but because of the way the show is written…you can’t HELP but love these characters and WANT them to get their happily ever after.

Scandal

I’m also having a super fan girl crush on Henry Cavill right now. I mean the man is HELLA  FINE and can not take a bad picture. I will NOT admit how many times I’ve watched my DVD of Man of Steel since I went to Target at 9 o’clock in the morning the day it was released. Yes…it’s that bad. (Check out my Pinterest board dedicated to Mr. Superman himself and see if I’m wrong about not taking a bad picture.)

Henry

And ever since the mid 1990′s I have adored me some Shemar Moore who is bi-racial (white mother/black father). (You can check out my Pinterest board dedicated to him as well.)

Shemar

I have finally finished book #4 in the Beach House Nights Series which I hope to have released soon. I’m also putting the finishing touches on a Christmas novella which I really need help on the title (see contest below) and will be working on a Valentine novella as soon as I finish it. After that…I have a couple of series I want to start working on. Not sure which I’m going to start first. Of course…they are all interracial. :-)

I guess I’ll entice you with a snippet from my Christmas novella coming soon and then tell you about the contest. So…check it out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She turned to see him standing just inside the door. “The rooms are wonderful. I can’t say enough how much you’ve outdone yourself. I mean, it’s better than a hotel room. They’re comfortable with an at home feel.”

A large smile spread across his face. “Good. I’m glad you’re satisfied with the accommodations.”

Oh…she was so much more than that…or could be much more if he…well, she wasn’t going to go there with him being so close and a bed just a few feet away.

“If you need anything, anyone on my staff is available to help you by dialing extension sixty one on the phone, or you can come see me. I’m right across the hall.”

Jorja had moved closer to him, couldn’t help it actually. It always felt like there was an invisible magnet between them. She peered around him. “Your office?”

They stood just over the threshold now, facing each other, so close she could smell the soap and aftershave he’d used this morning. She resisted the urge to lean closer and get a better whiff.

“My living quarters.”

“Oh. You live here too?”

In college, their dorm rooms had been two buildings apart. Knowing he was going to be across the hall from her when she got into bed tonight sent an involuntary sliver of awareness straight down her spine.

“Yes.” He never took his eyes off her face. He’d always been so direct that way, giving her his full attention. Being under his intense gaze had always unnerved her, made her think that he saw and read every expression on her face, knew every thought that crossed her mind.

Heaven forbid.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, there you go. My heroine is Jorja and my hero is Neal. They went to college together and shared a drunken kiss one night they never talked about but also never forgot! Jorja is coordinating her sisters wedding and she, her sister, and all the bridesmaids are staying in a cozy B&B in Colorado the week before the wedding. Neal just happens to own this B&B and one night decides it’s time to let Jorja know how he’s felt about her all these years and after a kiss under the mistletoe (of course) decides to perform a sexy strip tease that leads to a whole lot more.

I need a title…desperately! I’ve thought of Under The Mistletoe, Strip Tease Under The Mistletoe. Neither of these titles are doing it for me. LOL

I NEED YOUR HELP!!! My contest for the blog hop – help me come up with a great title for this sexy little Christmas novella. Leave a comment with your idea and if I choose your title…you will receive a free copy of the title when it releases AND a $10.00 gift cert to Amazon. Also….not part of the contest but if you like me and/or friend me on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest…I’ll love you forever! :-) And while we’re talking about multicultural love – who is your favorite actor/actress of a different race? Leave that in your comment as well. I’m curious!

1st prize: $50 Amazon gift card + 8 ebooks
2nd prize: $30 Amazon gift card+ 8 ebooks
3rd prize: $20 Amazon gift card + 8 ebooks
4th prize: $10 Amazon gift card + 8 ebooks

Five Question Friday With N. Wood, @WhitlockWood, #interview, #excerpt

Friday, June 28th, 2013 | Book Pimpage, Contests, Five Question Friday | No Comments

I would like to welcome author N. Wood to Five Question Friday! Nat will be giving away an e-copy of My Bittersweet to one lucky winner who posts on the blog.

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!

1. Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

My favorite character from My Bittersweet is Nicholas Walker. Though he may come across as whiny and pathetic to some, I like him for the strength he gains later in the story. He begins so withdrawn and emotional and later becomes open and strong.

2. What can your readers expect from you in the future?

I have four books lined up almost ready for publishing. One is a two part series, the other two are single books, all of them M/M. I also have been plotting out a trilogy which will be a new attempt for me in four ones. It’ll be het, vampire, historical and a three part series all of which I’ve not attempted before.

3. If your book was made into a TV series or Movie, what actors would you like to see playing your characters?

While writing My Bittersweet I had the actors set in my mind so I could picture them more clearly to help with the writing of my story. I’d like to see Jackson Rathbone play Nicholas Walker and Kellan Lutz play Archer Callahan.  (Yes, I’m a Twilight fan. What??? those boys are HOT!)

4. What are some day jobs you have held?  Have any of them impacted your writing? If so, share an example.

The first job I held after leaving school was as a Graphic Design Finisher. I worked in a printing shop and my job was to use a large guillotine machine to cut down a large sheet of printed card into business card sizes. The work was monotonous, but it gave me a chance to escape into my mind and fantasize stories, places I’d rather be than at work.

Another job I’ve held was as a Print Room Assistant for my local Council Offices. It was basically the same job as my first, but it wasn’t an all day thing. I had the chance to spend most of the afternoon sitting at a computer with no work to actually do. This is how my writing first began. I discovered fanfiction and haven’t looked back since :)

5. Where and when do you prefer to do your writing?

With two dogs, a boyfriend and his disabled sister in the house, the only time I get the peace and quiet enough to write is during the small hours. Often I don’t get to bed until around 3am. If I could choose a place to do my writing it would be in a quiet house on the coast with a sea view, a sea breeze and no disturbances.

*~~~~~*~~~~~*

N Wood - My Bittersweet
Blurb:

For Nicholas Walker, life barely seems worth living. With a too small apartment, a dead end job and a homophobic stepfather, what’s the point? He is at the end of his tether – until he meets Archer. When a misplaced joke pulls them together, will Archer be able to convince Nicholas that he does have something to live for, or is it really better to have loved and lost than to never love at all?

Excerpt:

The beeping was getting louder. I understood it was some kind of an alarm, but I didn’t usually set one for work. Groaning, I opened my eyes to find a bright light all around me. I had to blink a couple of times before I realized it was sunlight coming through the window. Weeks had passed since I’d last seen sunlight and like that time this would probably only last an hour or two as well.

I shifted a little, wanting to roll onto my side and block out the din with a pillow over my head. As I moved I discovered a sensation in my briefs like I hadn’t felt for a few years. Oh God, no – seriously? A wet dream?

I slipped my hand under the covers to investigate, to see if I had indeed shot a load in my sleep, but before I could even reach my waist it came into contact with something soft, faintly hairy and warm.

I froze straight away as I recalled the night before. There had been no amazing mind-blowing sex with Archer. That obviously was just a dream. Instead it had been an amazing mind-blowing jerking off session across the room from Archer while he did the same. I remembered he’d led me back to his bed so I could rest. I’d been sleepy and my head had been hurting. He’d gone to leave and I had asked him to stay.

Oh God, he had stayed?

I moved my hand slowly, tracing along the weight that was over my waist. Sure enough I discovered a large hand at the end of an arm. Turning my head and squinting against the sunlight I found the owner of the arm lying next to me, his blue eyes open and watching me; he’d stayed perfectly still as I’d poked and prodded at his arm to work out what it was. When my eyes met his I noticed concern in the cobalt depths.

He lifted his head from the pillow but kept his gaze on mine. “Are you alright?”

I wasn’t sure what he was referring to; my health in general? How I felt after what we’d experienced last night? Or the fact I’d just woken up to find him in bed beside me after embarrassingly blowing a load in my briefs to a highly arousing dream of him fucking me? I just nodded my head quickly in answer and seemingly thinking I was uncomfortable he slid his arm away from me, rolling onto his back and sitting up.

He leaned over and switched off his annoying alarm clock then glanced back to me, but before he could speak I beat him to it. “I got to piss.”

My Bittersweet is available NOW!! Get your copy here.

N. Wood would love it if you stalked her on the web…

Back To Basics – Lyric James’ Six Sentence Sunday, #sixsunday

Sunday, January 27th, 2013 | Blog Hop, Book Pimpage, Six Sentence Sunday | 6 Comments

Wow…I haven’t done Six Sentence Sunday in a while. But I’m back! Today I’m featuring Back To Basics, book #4 in the Beach House Nights series.  Don’t forget to visit the other authors participating in this hop. You can go here to get a list.

Now…the first six sentences of Back To Basics

Harper Coleman watched her friend’s retreating back and slid her gaze back to one man in the world who always sent her heart rate into the upper atmosphere, Blake Nelson. “You’re just as bad as he is,” she said, pointing a spatula at him. “Probably worse.”

He leaned back in his chair and gave her the sexy grin that always stole her breath. “You’ll never know until you try it out for yourself.”

The raw cadence of his voice slid over her skin and made it prickle.

Back To Basics

Blurb:

Harper Coleman learned the hard way to never let a man control her  or run her life. For the past three years the Miami chef has thrown her heart and soul into her restaurant. But when she’s invited to a friend’s beach house for the weekend, she finds a little R&R is just what the doctor ordered. But how’s Harper supposed to get the rest she so desperately needs with sinfully sexy Blake Nelson around throwing grease onto her already simmering lust.

Harper’s sassy charm hooked Blake Nelson the minute he tasted her famous sweet potato pie. This weekend is his chance to get close to the beautiful and sexy woman who creates masterpieces with her hands. Blake might not be able to whip up a culinary dish fit for consumption, but he’s cooking up a challenge she won’t be able to resist. As their sizzling competition flames into a feast for the senses, will going back to the basics of love be their final course?

Under His Cover 200Up All Night 2

For the bloghop all you have to do is leave a comment and tell me one place you’d love to visit in your lifetime and why.  Super easy, right? I was just talking to my husband about this a couple of days ago. “I’m” in charge of the “family” vacations we take every spring break, but I told my husband that it’s “his” job to make sure I go to all these places at least once in my lifetime.

  1. Rio (during Carnival)
  2. New Orleans (during Mardi Gra)
  3. New York City (for New Years Eve)
  4. An African Safari

All of those are a little bit naughty…right? The African Safari maybe not so much…but I think that’s an experience I should have. He told me I just wanted to go to Rio so I could show my boobs because they have nude beaches over there…SO NOT TRUE!  Ha!  

So come on bloggers…what’s that one place you just “have” to visit once in your lifetime? And don’t forget to visit the other authors and bloggers participating in the bloghop.

Peace, love and sex!

Would You Like Candy or Kink For Xmas? #bloghop #ebook #GC

Friday, December 14th, 2012 | Blog Hop, Book Pimpage, Contests, Holiday's | 42 Comments

How about a little bit of both?

kandycanekink

Welcome to my stop on the Candy Cane Kink Blog Hop! I would like to thank Close Encounters of the Night Kind and Natasha Blackthorne for sponsoring the hop!

Now…let’s have some kinky fun!

What is more kinkier than a sexy secret Santa? Nothing I tell you. I got a little kinky with my Christmas story, The Secret Santa Project!

The Secret Santa Project Cover 2

Here’s an excerpt…

They hurried past the bar and the restaurant and fell into the elevator in each other’s arms. Thank God, they were alone.

She sought out the thick, hard length of his cock with her palm, and he went rigid, his breathing fast and labored. “Oh, I’ve waited so long for this,” she said on a sigh.

His thumbs moved in slow circles around her nipples. She let a whimper escape and closed her hand around him. He gazed at her with heavy, half-lidded eyes and continued to pleasure her breasts.

“You have no idea,” he said as the door opened.

They rushed out into the hallway, laughing and stumbling toward the room. He backed her against the door, lingering over her neck as he slipped the keycard into the slot.

She moved her palm along his impressive length, which strained against his pants, and he groaned. Inside the room, he dropped the present and his jacket to the floor, and she kicked off her shoes. His mouth swooped down again to her nipples, and her knees began to shake. The tips of his fingers moved along her shoulders and eased her dress down until it fell in a heap at her feet. She stepped out of it.

“Beautiful,” he said, trailing the pads of his fingers over her stomach, across her hip, to the rim of her panties. Unaware she’d been holding her breath, she released it in a slow, ragged exhale. She gasped when his digits plunged inside her thong to cup and stroke her, parting her with a strong, sure touch that quickly found her most secret spot and teased it.

Somewhere in the back of her mind, she knew they needed to stop, take a breath, and talk. But the happiness and desire swirling inside her wouldn’t allow it. She jerked at his touch, tension coiling within her tighter and tighter. The air in the room was cool and caused her already swollen nipples to pucker even more.

Richard’s mouth closed around her breast, and she moaned, allowing her head to fall back in ecstasy. Gently, he pushed her backward until she rested on the bed. Kneeling between her thighs, he kissed and licked a path down her belly until he reached the apex between her legs. He used a thumb to trace the line of her lower lips, making her quiver from head to toe. He rubbed delicious circles around the fleshy center, sliding back and forth until he stopped at her clit.

Her breath came in short pants as her body began to crest to that magnificent place where ecstasy and passion collide. But then he took his thumb away, and she whimpered, ‘No. Oh, no. Please don’t stop.”

“Don’t worry, baby. I’m just getting started,” he said as he began to remove his clothes. His body was all sinewy muscle, firm and sleek, like some Greek god.

And he was finally hers.

When he finished, his strong hands pushed her knees far apart, and then his face was between her legs, nuzzling her, kissing the tender flesh. Any thought she held in her head emptied when his mouth closed over her clit and she cried out. Richard made a definite sound of male pleasure deep in his throat and pushed her thighs back even more. He parted her lips with his tongue and lapped at her as if he were trying to get to the center of a lollipop.

Reghan melted under his assault, forming small, unintelligible cries of bliss in the back of her throat. He went on and on, gyrating his tongue one moment then plunging it inside the next. He gripped her bottom and continued to lick her over and over until he fastened on her clitoris and sucked it hard.

She shattered and felt like a million stars bursting in the sky at the same time. Screaming in ecstasy, she gripped the sheets as her back arched off the bed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now who wouldn’t want a sexy secret Santa like that? I know I would. Read all about Richard and Reghan by purchasing a copy here. Enter my contest by signing into the Rafflecopter below. I will be giving away a free e-copy of the Secret Santa Project and a $20.00 gift certificate to Amazon.

Good luck, have fun hopping and Merry Christmas!

Today’s Six Sentence Sunday comes from a short story entitled The Masseur. Enjoy and don’t forget to visit the other authors participating in this blog hop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jared smiled and leaned forward, careful not to press on her face or hair. He planted a soft, delicate kiss on her belly. From that spot, tingles, slow and hot, shot out to every edge of her body. More kisses…navel, hip, ribcage, the bottom round of both breasts.

Kisses. Licks. Small bites.

Each and every one caressed, melted, and aroused her until she moaned.

“Yes.”

He applied light feather strokes over her belly, her breasts, neck and shoulders. With each soft brush, her skin came alive. Her body buzzed and heated, singed with need and lust. She wanted his fingers everywhere.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to The Pleasure Club, where fantasy becomes reality.

Lynae Moore wants to open her own day spa, but before she does, she wants to add one more certification to h er repertoire…becoming a massage therapist. Thanks to her sister, The Pleasure Club has found her the perfect Pleasure Master to introduce her to the sensual and erotic art only a masseuse’s touch can bring. The moment his hands slide over her skin, Lynae is sucked into her fantasy. At once she realizes what better way to get a little hands on experience than under his erotic caress.

The Masseur is available NOW!

 What are my prizes?

One (1) lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to Amazon and (2) lucky winners will receive an e-copy of my Halloween short story, Halloween Wish.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love Halloween! I don’t think there’s a kid out there that doesn’t. What makes it more fun? Parties and costumes!!! Being able to dress up and run around outside at night with your friends was the best time ever.  Now…costume buying now is NOTHING compared to what it was 30…I mean 10 years ago when I was a kid. (Hey…stop laughing!) Whatever costume you can imagine, 9 times out of 10…it’s out there. You don’t have to be a witch or a ghost anymore. You can be a sexy kitten, a fairy, a leprechaun, a zombie or a pirate. My most memorable Halloween costume was dressing up as Princess Barbie. 

My heroine in Halloween Wish Jordan goes to a Halloween party dressed as a genie. Check out this blurb and excerpt.

 

For Jordan Keys, a neighbors Halloween party is her last chance to fulfill a desire that has fueled her dreams for years, to spend one night in the arms of Kaden James. When she put on her genie costume, she never expected Kaden to ask her for the one wish she’s always wanted. But when the night is over, will a Halloween wish be the beginning or the end, after they discover that one night may never be enough to make all their wishes come true.

Her gaze slid over him, taking in the rest of his costume until she met his eyes. Boy did it accentuate his muscular physique. She attempted to keep any emotion she felt off her face as her heart began to thump wildly. The shirt he wore had a split up the middle, and his incredible abs winked at her from underneath. He had on a white skirt, a blue and gold belt wrapped around his waist. It wasn’t a skirt exactly, but for the life of her she couldn’t recall the correct name of the rest of his costume. Her mind had turned into mush.

“Kaden.”

He sat his glass down on a side table and smiled. “Hey, Natalie. Can I steal Jatoi away from you?”

“Sure.” Before Natalie walked away, she whispered, “Remember what I said. Last chance.”

“Last chance for what?” he asked.

Jatoi was flooded with embarrassment. “Nothing. We were just talking about…nothing. How are you?” She allowed her gaze to travel the length of him again. “I like your costume. Which Egyptian god are you?” A kilt. That’s it, she thought.

“King Tut.”

When he mimicked her and his gaze slid down her body and back up again, desire squeezed the air from her lungs.

“You look great.”

A rush of pleasure went through her. She moved her hands over her thighs to grasp the folds of the material that billowed at her legs. “I Dream of Jeannie. I don’t know why I let Nat talk me into wearing this thing.”

She wanted to look sexy, that’s why. They’d gone to four different stores searching out something to wear. When she’d put it on, Natalie told her she had to buy it, and after looking at herself in the mirror, she thought she’d made the right choice. It covered up all the essential parts, yet showed just enough skin. Plus she’d found one in purple and lavender, not the typical pink. And Natalie had been right. She knew Kaden would be at the party. She’d paired it with a cute pair of spiky heels that made her feel like she was on stilts. Goodness, she hoped she didn’t fall.

He took a step closer, put his arm around her waist, and pulled her forward. He whispered into her ear, “Can I make a wish?”

Jatoi knew he’d asked her something. Her brain registered the fact that he’d just touched her. The feel of his fingers against her bare lower back sent every cell in her body into hypersexual overdrive.

She looked up into fathomless green eyes that hadn’t changed at all. They were still rimmed by thick dark lashes and still reminded her of the summers she’d spent running through the fields on her grandfather’s farm in Arkansas.

She cleared her throat. With courage she didn’t know she possessed, she responded, “You have to find my bottle and rub it three times first. I can’t grant you a wish unless you find it.”

Lyric James is getting Wicked After Dark! #bloghop #contest #freebook

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 | Blog Hop, Book Pimpage, Contests, Holiday's | 27 Comments

ARE YOU READY TO GET WICKED AFTER DARK WITH LYRIC JAMES?

Of course you are! Plus…there’s a chance to win prizes.

Thanks for stopping by my stop on the Wicked After Dark Halloween Blog Hop. Special thanks to Close Encounters With The Night Kind and Natasha Blackhorne for organizing and hosting this blog hop.

Make sure you stop by each author and/or bloggers hop for a chance to win a ton of prizes.

What are my prizes?

One (1) lucky winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate to Eden Fantasys and two (2) lucky winners will receive an e-copy of my Halloween short story, Halloween Wish. 

I love Halloween. It’s the only time of year I…kids…can gorge themselves on candy and the parents don’t mind. The candy I look forward to is Brach’s Candy Corn. Now don’t get me wrong…I love my chocolate…but this is the only time of the year that stores carry loads of this wonderful goodness. In fact…I have a bag in my office drawer right now. Ha!

My second favorite thing about Halloween….parties! It’s a time when adults can dress up in costumes and be anything they want. Check out this excerpt from my short-story, Halloween Wish.

Welcome to Hot In Handcuffs Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you take the time to browse around and check out my website and see if there’s anything you’d like to add to your TBR list. :-)

The blog hop runs from October 10th to October 15th. Do you like a little ménage a trois or perhaps some spanking to go with your bondage? Perhaps you prefer some guy on guy action or even some role-playing… Whatever your kink is, The Hot In Handcuffs blog hop wants to celebrate it!

For my part in the blog hop I will be giving away 4 prizes! Two winners will receive an e-copy of any book on my backlist and two winners will receive a $5.00 gift to Amazon.

Are you ready to hop? Yes! Then lets get started….

Erotic romance, specifically BDSM erotic romance is on the rise! The huge following of E.L James’ 50 Shades of Gray has brought this genre up to the forefront of romantic fiction. BUT…I have to admit…I haven’t read it. I have friends who’ve read it and loved it! Now these friends, are readers, they aren’t writers, so for someone like me, I knew that genre was out there well before Ms. James’ book came along…but again, I just never read it. Never thought about reading it. Never wanted to read it. Here’s another BUT…I got interested. So, I picked up my trusty iPad, went to Amazon and started to browse the top 100 list (free and paid) to see what was out there and test the genre out for myself to see if I would like it.

I did.

Let’s just say Little Miss Lyric got a whole lotta hot under the collar after reading a couple of free shorts. I went ahead out to buy a few too. The particular authors I read had the right idea too. The first in their series of BDSM novella’s at the time were free…the 2nd, 3rd, etc. cost anywhere from $.99 to $2.99. And I didn’t mind paying. I read the Melody series by Imogen Linn, Anything He Wants series by Sara Fawkes, and the Brie series by Red Phoenix.

Reading this genre also had me thinking about writing one myself. After some well thought out research of course. :-) So stay tuned…

New York to Dallas
5 of 5 stars true
Loved...loved...loved. Now...since she's finally dealt with the demons of both her parents...if she'd only get pregnant!!! I would really love to see how she combines being the bad-a@@-cop she is with motherhood.

This was my first Patricia Cornwell novel and I really enjoyed. Her relationship with her niece was great. Great story and plot. Can't wait to read the next one.
The Son of Neptune

So awesome to be in Percy's head again! Once again Rick Riordan took me away to the awesome world of Roman/Greek mythology via his demigods. Instead of Camp Halfblood...in this book we visit the counterpart Roman camp, Camp Jupiter. In t...
