I believe I’ve finally gotten my writing mojo back! I received the edits back for Up All Night and the manuscript and the cover is off to my formatter! I’m hoping to have it released to all the normal places by the end of the week. Phew! This has been a long time coming. I haven’t released a new book since March. That’s way too long.
Today I’m going to share an excerpt and the cover I’ve already received from my current WIP that I hope to have finished by the end of next week…maybe. I’m a slow writer. I’m actually “rewriting” this story. It was initially published in 2006 from Cobblestone Press but I’ve since received the rights back and had this brilliant idea to rewrite the thing. It was a short story, about 11k, an erotic romantic suspense, but I’ve decided to tweak that a little bit and add a little more spice and kink. This was the original blurb for it:
P.I. Karyn Harris’ sister was killed in the` line of duty and branded a rogue cop. She’s spent the last year grieving and trying to clear her sister’s name. Zechariah Washington, an ex-cop and law student, is there to help ease her pain, but he wants to be more than a shoulder to cry on. Then, an unexpected phone call sends the couple on a life-threatening search to find the clue that will vindicate her sister. Can Zechariah convince Karyn there’s more to their relationship or will they both fall victim to the same people who murdered her sister?
Not bad…but when I decided I wanted to rewrite the story and delve “more” into what happened to the sister, I came up with this….
Private Investigator Karyn Harris’ sister was killed in the line of duty and branded a rogue cop. She’s spent the last year grieving and wishing she could find the one clue that will vindicate her sister. Zechariah Washington, an ex-cop and law student, is there to help ease her pain, but he wants to be more than a shoulder to cry on. After a mid-afternoon booty call, an unexpected phone call sends Karyn and Zechariah to the last place her sister was seen alive…the fantasy sex club, Twine. Karyn finds out more than she bargained for about the last few months of her sister’s life and realizes the only way to find her killer is to follow in her footsteps, become a member of the club and enlists Zechariah to go under cover with her. Before too long, Karyn realizes she’s going down the same path. When the dark fantasies of floggers, spankings and collars become her own, finding her sister’s killer no longer drives her desire to return to the club again and again, but her erotic need for Zechariah’s dominance. Will she come to her senses before it’s too late or will they fall victim to the same people who murdered her sister?
I know right!!! Awesome new blurb if I do say so myself. After I wrote that blurb, a few days later this scene just popped into my head and I stopped what I was doing right then and there and wrote it. Check it out!
Who was she? What kind of woman got off on this type of pleasure and pain?
This entire undercover assignment was supposed to be about finding her sisters killer. Not about exploring the kinky side she never even realized she had. But as Zee’s hand spanked her ass, she couldn’t help the roll of desire sizzling inside her depths. She was wet. Sinfully creamy and she didn’t want it to stop.
“Count,” he hissed.
And she heard it in his voice. The undercurrent of need and want. Zee was just as turned on as she was judging by the swell and thump of his cock on her stomach. “Five,” she moaned.
“Now stop,” Torque said. “Stop and feel. To be a Dom you have to not only be aware of your own bodies limits, but your submissive’s as well. Listen to her breathing. She’s panting. She’s so fucking turned on right now she wants to scream fuck me. Please fuck me right now.”
How did he know this? He was clear across the room but he knew exactly what she wanted. Karyn needed Zee’s cock so far up inside her she did want to yell. To the top of the rafters she wanted to yell.
No! This wasn’t right it wasn’t right at all.
“Don’t fight it Kay.”
Air lodged in her throat as her body went rigid over Zee’s thighs.
“You have to coax her out of her fear Zee. She’s resisting your dominance over her. Let her know it’s just as much for you as it is for her. Smooth your hand over her ass.”
A beat later, Zee glided his palm over her ass cheeks still tingling from the bite of his spanking.
“That’s right, slowly. Move from one to the other.”
Karyn tugged her bottom lip between her teeth to keep from crying out with pleasure.
“He has to hear it Kay. Your Dom has to hear, feel and witness his dominance over you. Let it out.”
No. No. She couldn’t. This isn’t who she was. Karyn was submissive to no man. She was strong, powerful.
“You’re going to have to make her Zee. Slide your fingers between her legs.”
Zech did and it was glorious.
“See how wet she is. Her pussy is dripping just for you. Only you.”
She heard a deep rumbling groan well up inside Zee, felt it throb against her hip.
He eased two digits inside her now and pumped.
“Let it out Kay. Let go.”
“Yes. Oh god yes,” she moaned.
“Pull your fingers out and talk to her Zee. Let her know who’s in control.”
When his hand left her she felt bereft, lost. ”Please Zee, don’t stop.”
His hand crashed down on her left butt cheek. “Is that the correct way you address me?”
“I’m sorry. I’m sorry.” The pain was such a mixture of desire and abhorrence, mist clouded her vision. “Please Sir. Don’t stop.”
“But I thought you didn’t want to be punished. I thought you said you didn’t deserve it.”
Those simple words were coming back to haunt her. If the ecstasy coiling through her veins was any indication of what she now desired, she welcomed the sting of his hand on her ass. “I was wrong Sir. Any punishment Sir believes I should receive I welcome it.”
There was a hitch in Zech’s breathing. “Kar-”
He said it so softly she didn’t know if she really heard him at all.
“Zee,” Torque bellowed, “Complete her punishment.”
His hand slammed down on her and she screamed. “Six.”
Again and again he smacked until she choked out, “Twelve.”
I had soooooo much fun writing that! I’ve never written anything like it before? What do you think? And here’s the cover my wonderful cover artist Sasha White created for me.
Not sure when this story will be released, hopefully December. Hope you enjoyed the excerpt. Please be sure to leave a comment. I like them all…good or bad.
Peace, love and sex!
