Changes
by
Angelica Dawson
International Bestselling and Award Winning Author
@AngelicaDawson

As a transgender woman,
Jacqueline has never felt quite right in her body. Concocting a hormone supplement
to assist in her transition, she unwittingly unleashes her hidden half: the
curvy, beautiful, Heidi.
Heidi is perfectly
feminine, everything Jacqueline wished she could be, except for one
thing…she’s pure evil.

Jacqueline will have to
defeat her inner monster to have any chance at happiness.

“Fifteen.”
Tears burned streaks down her cheeks. David raised his hand, then dropped it on
her upturned ass. “Sixteen.”
“Enough?”
He slid his palm over her bright pink bottom, making it tingle in a way that
caused a twitch in her groin. Unlike most women, she sported a penis and it
grew against his lap, pinned slightly. That pain added to the wonderful warmth
spreading down her thighs.
“Yes.”
Her voice shook even though she spoke with confidence. Sniffling, she swallowed
the rest of the pain.
He
wound up and landed his hardest slap yet. She screeched but wasn’t entirely
surprised. “I decide when it is enough,” he reminded her. “Now, let’s see that
cock.”
He
pushed her up and she caught his shoulder for balance. He looked her over,
starting with her knobby knees, up over the penis that had grown and continued
to swell as he slid a hand down over her ass. He didn’t stop there, taking in
her lacy red bra and eventually her tear-streaked cheeks.
David
sat with his knees splayed, the stable base that had supported her a moment
ago. His pants were soft and loose, tenting. How had she missed that before? He
wore no shirt and she put a hand on one of his pecs. Her stroke was an echo of
his on her ass.
She
knew her makeup had run and wiped a hand across her cheek, no longer looking as
feminine as before. “Sorry.”
Despite
how quietly she had apologized, David’s palm went from caressing to smacking.
She knew what he required, what she’d forgotten.
“I am
a woman,” she intoned, reciting as she had every morning since she’d taken up
with David and every time she apologized for her appearance in front of him. “I
am beautiful, and my body is a temple. With it I will worship you and thank you
for your adoration and admiration.”
“Damn
right.” He pulled her between his thighs and sank his fingers into her long
hair, using it to pull her down for a kiss. “Now get a tissue and clean
yourself up.”
“Thank
you.” She pressed her lips to his, but as soon as she had, she noticed her nose
running and hurried to the en suite bathroom. Using astringent, depilatory
cream and moisturizer, she conducted her nightly ablutions. Returning to David,
she doubled her arms behind her for the clasp of her bra.
She
stopped, seeing him stroking his erection. His pants were a puddle on the floor
next to the chair, upon which she had laid her own. Her breath came faster and
she bit her lip, wondering how he would want her.
“Come
here.” He crooked a finger. “Something simple tonight? I know you’re in the lab
first thing tomorrow.”
She
nodded, but considered asking for the opposite. For something long, intense,
and climactic.
David’s
mouth twitched, rising on one side into a lop-sided smirk. “Turn, bend, and
grab your ankles,” he commanded.
Jacqueline
shivered. That was not the prelude to something simple. How did he read her
mind like that? No matter. “Yes, sir.” She obeyed, presenting her posterior. It
was still warm from his spanking.
“Can
you see your cock?” he asked, moving from the bed. She could follow his voice
but couldn’t see what he did.
“Yes.”
Of course she could, she was bent right in front of it.
“Kiss
it.”
Her
whole body seemed on edge. This was not an easy request and try as she might,
it remained out of reach.
“Close
enough. Stay there.” Jaqueline didn’t pull her head back, but she gasped as his
lubed fingers prepared her tight ass to be followed by his cock. The probing
and twisting made her insides turn to water, melting away.
“Fuck,
David, I’m going to fall over.”
“No,
you’re not.” He had a firm hold of her hips, and despite her over 160 pounds,
he lifted her almost off the floor. She wasn’t falling as long as he held her.
Trusting
him, feeling safe, she tried to press back onto his cock. He didn’t let go, but
nudged her head with his wrist. “I want you to cover yourself in cum.”
She
shook her head, disbelieving. The blood rushing to her head made her see stars
in the corners of her vision. He felt so good fucking her that she was willing
to try anything. “I’m getting dizzy.”
“Keep
your head there.” He thrust faster, his thighs slapping into her ass, making it
sting. She squirmed, which only made it better for both of them. Her cock, bent
at an odd angle, throbbed, and when David started to erupt inside her, she knew
her own release wouldn’t be denied.
“David!”
Ejaculate shot in pulses onto her chest and throat, dripping down to her
upturned face. The twisted position added to the tension in her muscles from
the climax resulted in a nasty kink in her chest. “Ow.”
“Upsie-Daisy.”
David pulled her upright against him, holding her with one arm across her chest
and the other her hips. He fondled her small breast while he tucked his nose in
under her ear. “Steady?” he asked, kissing her neck.
“Mm,”
she hummed, relaxing in his embrace.
“Lie
down. I’ll clean you up.” He disappeared into the bathroom and she barely
managed to open her eyes when he returned. He ran the warm cloth over her face
and dabbed at her hair. She would wash it in the shower in the morning. Then he
wiped her ass where his come was leaking onto the sheets. Finally, after
tossing the cloth away, he slipped under the sheets beside her, spooning up.
“I
love you,” Jacqueline whispered.

“And I
love you.”


Hi there! Great to meet you. Don’t mind the flowers. It’s
nice to have my namesake around.
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to
writing?
I’ve been a published author for eight years. I loved
writing fiction in school and took my first stab at a novel when I graduated. I
fell away from it for a while, but fell back in just over 10 years ago, writing
fanfiction. Since then I’ve published many titles.

How did you come up with this storyline?
I have an author friend, Julez Morbius, that often uses
transsexuals as main characters. His writing challenged me, and after mulling
over Trans ideas, Jekyll and Hyde came to mind. Thus we have Jacqueline and
Heidi.
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
The singular nature of it fits both those bills. It makes it
great, because I do it whenever I want, wherever I want and it doesn’t mess
with anyone’s schedule but mine. It’s also hurdle when I don’t believe in
myself or I hit a road block because I don’t have someone working with me to
offer up a suggestion. I have a circle of support, and I do call on them, but
it’s not the same as having someone across from you, working on the same thing
at the same time, together.
What inspires you to write?
Lately, inspiration has been hard to find. Nature is one of
my muses, and although it’s a dreary drab spring here in Edmonton, fresh buds
on the trees remind me that everything is just about to come into bloom again.
What are 3 of your favorite quotes from Changes?
She would have another chance, another time. She just needed
to be patient… She had never been patient.
***
“Let me know if you need anything. I can find another
construction guy and punch his lights out.”
***
“Ah, you’re planning on parading that fucktastic body, are
you?”
What would your friends say is your best quality?
I’ve been told it’s my tolerance. It comes easy to me, so I
don’t think about it, but when I see a parent with a shrieking child, or a kid
that seems to be always in trouble, I don’t think judgmental things about
their personality or character, I start with the assumption that there are
circumstances in their lives that I don’t know or understand. Instead of
looking down on them, or offering platitudes, I try to offer REAL help, by
giving that mom or dad a minute or two to themselves, by keeping an eye on that
kid on the playground and making sure that any complaints against him are
justified. And although I am tolerant and accepting of transgender individuals, I also know that my head defaults gender in a way I hate. It leads
to me using incorrect pronouns instinctively and feeling terrible about it
after. Although it might be my best feature, it isn’t always a good as I would
like.
Are reader reviews important to you? Why?
Yes and no. Mostly no. I have very low self-esteem so a
flattering review can really bolster me. However, it is the bad reviews that
haunt me and make me second guess everything I write, long after I’ve forgotten
the good one. As a result, I try not to look at my reviews. It’s difficult.
What do you do when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life”
I’m an environmental consultant and a lunch supervisor at my
daughter’s school. In the winter, when we aren’t as busy it’s easy to squeeze
in an hour for lunch, but over late spring and summer, I’m often out of town.
It’s a nice change from season to season.
Tell us about your other books?
My primary series is Blue Moon House about BDSM vampires.
Changes takes place at a BDSM dungeon called Riz Kay, which is also a setting
for Switching Up. You get a glimpse of David and Jacqueline in that story.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me.
It’s been lovely to share some of my hopes and fears with you.

 Mated
by
Kallysten

International Bestselling Author
@Kallysten

“When the Ileos
clan invites shifter clans from the Firelands to watch their new leader take
power, Maikel Argonis doesn’t have much choice but to attend. As second in line
to the throne, his lack of interest for this kind of social function is not reason
enough to stay home. His father, the king of the Firelands, rules over his sons
with as firm a hand as he rules a realm where power-hungry shifters don’t
hesitate to start wars.
The chore, however,
takes an unexpected turn for Maikel when he meets Celly Ileos. Second-born like
he is, quick-witted and rebellious, she captures both Maikel’s interest and his
dragon’s—even though she’s a phoenix.
Celly doesn’t mind
seeing her older brother take power like he was always destined to. However,
she does mind that he’s already trying to use her as a pawn in his power games,
intending to strengthen their clan through her marriage to one of his allies.
Her heart is her own, and she wants to choose her own mate.
But if that mate
happens to be a dragon prince, will she be strong enough to endure the fire of
disapproval raging from his family and her own?

She joined him and they stood together close to the edge, with nothing in front of them but thin air all the way down to a five hundred feet drop. It was a place and a view of which she’d never tire, and she often came here early in the morning to watch the sun soar above the horizon—and soar with it. Today, however, she found herself watching Maikel rather than the play of colors lighting up distant clouds.
“What a wonderful place,” he murmured, his gaze sweeping the valley stretched down below them. “Perfect to take flight from, isn’t it?”
He turned to her as he finished and something must have showed on her face because he quickly added, “Which is what you came here to do, I’m guessing.”
She inclined her head.
“Nothing better to clear my head than to jump and let myself fall a couple hundred feet before I let myself shift.”
Maikel whistled softly.
“I didn’t realize phoenixes enjoy this kind of thing.”
She raised an eyebrow at him.
“What kind of thing is that?”
“Dangerous things. Like jumping from a cliff.”
“And here I thought dragons were supposed to be impulsive creatures,” she teased. “Are you telling me you’re afraid of what I was doing when I wasn’t even ten years old?”
Something shifted in his eyes, their dark auburn turning to gold for a split second, then to flames as brightly red as blood.
“I didn’t say I was afraid,” he pointed out in a mild voice as he shrugged out of his jacket and dropped it to the ground.
Next thing she knew, his shirt was already halfway unbuttoned and opening on a surprisingly tan and muscled chest.
“What—what are you doing?” she stammered, forcing her eyes back up to his. Her cheeks were burning up all of a sudden.
“Undressing,” he answered plainly. “So I don’t ruin my clothes when I shift and have to ride back to the fortress in the nude.”
That image probably shouldn’t have been so appealing.
“But…”
Whatever protest she wanted to offer disappeared when he shrugged his shoulders and his shirt slid off, exposing the smooth expanse of his chest and gently rippled abs that made her fingers curl with the desire to touch them. Apparently, he was still doing ‘grunt work’ in his vineyard—another intriguing image. He started reaching for the fastenings of his pants and she hurriedly turned her back to him.
“This doesn’t strike me as very appropriate,” she said, her words ending on a mortifying little squeak.
The whisper of a zipper being pulled down seemed to fill the space between them.
“Are you telling me you didn’t come here to shift? Because if that’s what you’re saying, we don’t believe you.”
His word choice confirmed what she had started to suspect: his dragon was close, very close to the surface. She’d always heard that dragons were impulsive and quick to act when they felt threatened or insulted… it certainly appeared to be true.
And if you’re saying part of you didn’t hope it’d end up this way, her phoenix supplied with a little laugh, I’m the one who won’t believe you. Why are you so flustered, girl?
He’s undressing! Right beside me!
The rustling sounds behind her were all she could hear.
No, I think he’s naked by now. Don’t be such a prude, it’s not like you’ve never seen a man in the nude, whether it was a shifter before or after his shift, or a plain-blood human ready to get naughty with you. But maybe you’d prefer the latter?
Will you shut up already? You’re supposed to be on my side!
Not your side, darling. Ours.
It wasn’t often that Celly’s phoenix exerted her will to control their shared body when they were in human form, and when she did it always took Celly by surprise to the point that she couldn’t stop her. The phoenix did that now, making her turn around even as running steps announced what Maikel was doing.
Celly didn’t have time to see much more than a naked blur before he was leaping right over the cliff with a yell that sounded like pure exhilaration.
She’d been here with a dozen different people over the years, and she’d come on her own on countless mornings. Whether someone jumped for the first time or the hundredth, even knowing that their phoenix was ready to take over long before they crashed, the instinctive fear never completely went away—but that was half the fun. Maikel seemed completely fearless.
Without thinking, Celly stepped closer to the edge, where she’d be able to watch him go down. His body was spread out, arms and legs extended on either side of him as he faced down.
Nice ass, her phoenix supplied, and Celly smiled.
The next second, her mouth fell open and she gaped. She’d watched dozens of phoenixes shift, and she knew intimately what it felt like to do so, both when standing on firm ground or when tumbling in the air, an illusion of flight without wings. Phoenixes were long and lithe, with powerful wings and five oversized feathers for a tail. A shifter taking their phoenix form had always looked to her like golden fire rippling through a human body and exploding outward into new, feathery limbs, a process as elegant as it was quick.
She’d seen dragons fly before, but she’d never seen one shift. She’d imagined it would look the same, just with a different shape, and in a way it was. At the same time, though, it felt entirely different. Maybe because dragons were almost twice as massive as phoenixes, or maybe because she wasn’t as familiar with their shape, the shifting seemed to happen in slow motion.
Maikel’s skin, already so far down below, darkened gradually until wings shot out of his back fully formed, while the rest of his body was still human. They spread out and hid part of him even as the shifting continued, limbs, body and head morphing into the imposing yet still elegant lines of a dragon. There was a moment when his wings folded and he tilted forward, head first into the dive. Celly couldn’t suppress a gasp, suddenly sure that something must have gone wrong.
She gasped again, this time in awe, as his wings extended and he veered in a fluid movement, following one of the strong winds that played along the cliff to stop his descent and glide back upward.
It had taken him long seconds to fall halfway down the cliff, but in the blink of an eye he was back at her level. She could have sworn one of his blood-red eyes winked at her before he dived back into the valley with a roar that would have been frightening had it not sounded like sheer delight.
He’d been so close she could almost have touched him if she’d only extended her hand, and while she hadn’t she could imagine the texture of his hide under her tingling fingertips. Leathery but smooth, warm from the heat of his blood, slick… It had seemed black when he’d first shifted, but from up close his coloring was more charcoal that pure black, with splatters of white and gray dots like freckles on his wings, his back, his underside.
He twirled and dropped down into the valley, occasionally beating his large wings once or twice but for the most part following the wind currents, before coming back to where she stood. He hovered there, close enough that the horses a few paces behind her, as accustomed as they were to being around winged beasts larger than they were, neighed unhappily and struck the ground with their hooves.
If that’s not an invitation to join him, her phoenix said, I’ll eat my own tail. What are you waiting for?

Hello and thank you so much for having me for a little chat
today! Here’s hoping I don’t start rambling too much… I’m wrangling my toddler
as I do this interview and she can be a handful!
How long have you been a writer and how did you come to
writing?
The reason I became a writer – that is, wrote an entire
story and shared it with readers – was because of boredom. Not too glamorous, I
know! I wrote my first novella in middle school. We had ‘study’ classes in
which we were supposed to just sit quietly and work on homework or study, but I
always finished my work early and would get bored out of my mind. One day I
brought a new notebook to school and started inventing a story… and another,
and another after that. When I moved to the United States in 2001, everything
felt so strange and new, I stopped writing for a while. When I started again
about a year later, it was, for the first time, in English. The change was
brutal and the learning curve pretty stiff… but after a few years, I started putting
‘writer’ on the occupation line when doing my taxes and it felt pretty special.
How did you come up with the storyline for Mated?
I was just finishing a different story which is set in the Fated & Forbidden series,
a universe shared by 11 authors, and my mind was drifting over the ‘forbidden’
aspect of love, and how long writers have played with that storyline. Romeo and
Juliet were hardly the first! Also I’d been wanting to write a shifter story
for a while and couldn’t decide between phoenix and dragon. The two thoughts
combined… forbidden love between dragon and phoenix shifters… now I just had to
figure out who my characters were!
How did you figure it out? Do the characters ‘live’ with you
as you write?
Absolutely. When I get the idea for a story and start
thinking of the characters, they take a life of their own and play out the
story in my mind, the same scene repeated a dozen times until each word or
action is just right. Writing is the only way to get them to quiet down and
move on… to the next scene!
What inspires you to write?
Just about anything, really. I never know where my muse will
look next to plot a new story. Let me think…
One of my vampire BDSM series (Carte
Blanche
and its sequels) was inspired by a real-life Domme whom I knew
online and got to chat with face to face once. I was very proud that she gave
the story her seal of approval.
My Ward of the Vampire serial came
from a chat I had with a friend. She was bemoaning the ‘billionaire boyfriend’
trend and saying she had no interest in writing such a story but wished she
could so she could get on the bandwagon. I told her to just write her thing and
find her readers that way, and joked that I’d never write for that trend
either. My muse took that as a challenge and within a few months I had 140,000
words of it…
My On The Edge series came from one
throwaway line in another book. I’d mentioned this vampire friendly club, its
human owner and his vampire lovers, and suddenly I had to tell their story…
I have a YA shifter story with my other pen name (Beneath the Twin Moons of Haldae) that
came from an article I read about a newly discovered tribe in the Amazon who’d
never been in contact with ‘civilization’ before. The moment I finished the
article I had the whole plot in my mind.

What is the hardest part of creating a book?
For me, it’s definitely the promoting part. Ask me to write
or rewrite and I’ll be happily typing away all day – and night – long. Ask me
to toot my own horn and tell people why my stories are worth reading, and I
freeze. Not that I don’t think they are worth reading; I just wasn’t raised
into thinking my own accomplishments are something I ought to talk about. Just
doing this interview is a painful process… but don’t worry, I’ll survive!
What are 3 of your favorite quotes from Mated?
Argh! You’re asking me to pick my favorite child! (If, you
know, I had more than one!)
All right, let me try…
Should I? she whispered in her own mind. If it comes out
that I’ve been flying with a dragon…
What’s the worst that could happen? Your mother will be
disappointed? Your brother will try to marry you off to the first phoenix who
so much as expresses an interest in you? Nothing new, then.
*** 
Yes, I suppose she is rather pretty, for a human.
*** 
And you don’t mind that he is a dragon?
He can’t help what he is, her phoenix said. Why should I
blame him for what is not his fault?
What would your friends say is your best quality?
Probably that I’m loyal. When I make a friend, it’s for
life. I’m still in touch with my very first real friend, Dje, whom I met when
we were 6 and who lives in France.
Are reader reviews important to you? Why?
Yes and no. Yes because it’s always interesting to see what readers
enjoyed (or didn’t like…) in a story – and because, for better or for worse,
reviews are an important part of promotion. No because when I read a review I
always want to engage the reader in a dialogue about it, see what they thought
about this other bit or that other thing, but I’ve always been told it’s a big
no-no.
What do you do when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life”
You mean other than wrangling Baby, taking her to the
museum, the zoo, the parc, the pool, and indoor and outdoor playgrounds?
*grins* Well I do enjoy quilting a lot. I make a lot of lap-sized quilts
because they’re fairly quick to make on my little machine. I even gave one in a
reader giveaway last year… I might have to do it again this year!
Tell us about your other books?
Another ‘pick your favorite child’ question! My backlist is
growing so long, I’ve even lost count of how many books I actually have for
sale. Most of what I’ve written to date was about vampires and/or magic. My
last two releases were about magic – Blood
Moon
, in the Fated & Forbidden series I mentioned earlier, is about two
power-wielding lovers who reunite after centuries of estrangement. Love & Magic is a box set of 3
short stories that are male/male relationships revolving around magic. The
release before that was Switching
Sides
, a BDSM vampire short that’s a sequel to the Domme novel I told you
about earlier.
M/F, M/M, ménages; sweet stories, sexy ones, kinky ones;
short stories, novellas, novels, long novels; standalone, series… You name it,
I’ve probably written it!
           

If you read through this entire thing… thank you! Have a
gold star… oh wait, Baby took all my gold stars! How about a freebie instead? I
find the best way to introduce myself to readers is to offer them something to read.
I have several freebies on the major ebook stores, and extra ones available
through my newsletter. Feel free to come
and say hi!


Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing since her teenage years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers’ reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.

The Spook & The Hacker by Lanna Farrell

Friday, October 31st, 2014

In celebration of Halloween – The first in a new series, the Holiday Cheer Series

Mariah Livingston is a genius with an IQ of 182. As a young child she excelled at hacking computers all over the world and earned her a spot on the Special Unit FBI’s watch list. When they send Undercover Agent Michael Kendrick to take her down. He discovers Mariah only uses her skills to help her family take down criminals or find lost loved ones for families. When Michael reports back the FBI closes the file which leads Michael to dating and falling in love with Mariah. Now a year later the FBI needs her help. When she walks into their underground secret facility, learning they deal with both regular and paranormal people, she meets someone she never expected, A Spook, undercover Special Agent, Michael Kendrick. Never in a million years would she have pictured her lover, best friend, the man she one day dreamt of marrying walking into that office where they have taken her for an interview. Can she forgive him for deceiving her? Only Mariah can decide.

 

Excerpt:

Mick saw Mariah switching shoes as he drove past on his way to work. He felt badly now that he’d kept her in bed way too long this morning. She was a woman he couldn’t just have sex with one time. No, every time he was lucky enough to have her over, he had to have her as many times as he could, providing his junk worked.

It was selfish of him, but she sure hadn’t complained. Mariah was a passionate, beautiful woman who loved sex as much as he did.

This morning, she had been angry with him for delaying her departure. He knew it was an important day for her.

When he saw she was already late, he quickly bee-lined it for the parking lot, so he could get ahead of her to see her off and wish her luck. Watching her jog through the rain, with a scowl on her face, he couldn’t be more in love with her if he tried. Mick knew he would never take Mariah for granted.

He had known her for a couple of years, with it only being during the last year in which they’d developed a relationship.

Mariah, still, to this day, called him her “friend with benefits”. Mick thought their feelings went deeper than that. After today, though, he wasn’t so sure they would have anything left of their love for each other.

The one thing that had bothered Mick was coming to a head today. She would finally know who and what he was. He hoped their love could withstand what she was sure to see as a betrayal, but he wasn’t sure Mariah would forgive him for this.

Now, all he had to do was support her, give her a kiss, and send her to his funeral, in a matter of speaking. Mick was taking a chance with their relationship, but he couldn’t keep the secret from her any longer.

Mariah was a slender woman with fiery dark gray-green flecked eyes which glowed and pierced, especially when she was angry or, in his case, passionately loving him.

Mariah had a slim waist which flared into perfect rounded hips. The black skirt and blazer she wore did nothing to hide her body, only accentuating it more.

“Mick? What are doing here?” Mariah gasped.

He pulled open the door. “Hey, I felt bad. It was my fault you’re so late.”

“Well, don’t blame yourself. I could have told you no.” Her face turned crimson. Mick thought she was adorable when she turned all shy on him.

“I’m here to make sure you still get your chance.” Mick took her hand and guided her toward the security guard who was stationed inside the door.

Mick led her over to the gate, which was the start of the checkpoint. “This is where I stay. Good luck today, Mariah.” he whispered.

She hugged him, then, before she had a chance to pull away, he kissed her. She frowned at him. “Wow, Mick, you’re holding me as if this is that last time you’ll see me. What’s going on with you?”

“Nothing. I’m just trying to wish you luck.” He had to remember how intelligent this woman was.

“Well, okay, then. But, it seems silly you drove all the way over here to wish me luck. Are you feeling okay?” Her wide-eyed innocence was merely a smoke screen; he knew she was trying to figure out something, and she had no idea.

Mick had to break away quickly before he said or did something to send her running away from him and this job interview. Today was the day he had to come clean about his past, as well as reveal his deepest secret. It could tear them apart.

Mick smiled gently. “I’m just fine; really, it was no bother. I just work around the corner.”

Mariah laughed. “Well said, Mick, I’m sorry. You know me; I’m always suspicious. Now, one more thing; do I look okay?” She wore a worried frown.

“Let me take a look.” Mick straightened the tie she had worn today to match her suit. It was black, made of silk. It hung down onto a white buttoned up dress shirt.

He brushed off her blazer. “There, other than being slightly wet, you look great. I love your hair like this. It reminds me of the wonderful night you gave me.”

Mariah’s long hair had curled even more with the humidly in the air and was piled on top her head in a messy bun.

“Do you think it’s too much?” She brushed back the wisps that fell out of the clip and surrounded her face.

“Not at all; you’re sexy as hell. Now, get in there. Mariah, you can do this, I promise.”

He pushed her toward the waiting female security guard.

Until Mariah was hired, he wasn’t allowed to tell her anything, especially about himself. As much as he hated it, keeping his real identity from her was absolutely necessary. He prayed she would forgive him. Mick couldn’t lose her now.

My Writing Process – Blog Tour

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Happy Monday, y’all!

I want to say thank you to the lovely and talented Ms. Gynger Fyer for allowing me to partake in this blog tour.

Below are my four answers to the questions posed about my writing process.

1) What am I working on?

Currently I’m finishing up some contemporaries as well as some paranormals. Next month starts my time of writing historicals. Some of what I’m working on are in series that you know and some are in upcoming series. The next in the Interludes series. One for the Astral Guardians series and a paranormal that as of this moment, doesn’t have a home but I will tell you, it’s a shifter story. *grin* Yep, that’s all I’m sharing.

2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I think what makes my work, and every authors work, different is our voice. How we tell our stories.

3) Why do I write what I do?

Because I write what the characters tell me what to write. I’m not a plotter. I don’t sit down and say, okay, I need to do this this and this. The characters come to me and say, this is who I am, write my story. We will guide you.

4) How does your writing process work?

As I mentioned above, it’s the characters who deem how the story will go. When people talk to me about turning points, and plot points, etc, my eyes tend to glaze over. I tell stories, the characters know them way better than I do and I trust myself to listen to them. Yes, at times it gives me characters that have me scratching my head but…really, isn’t that what human life is about? Nothing is a given, not a person’s reaction to a situation or how we feel they should be responding. Every one of us, whether we’ve done it X way twenty thousand times, that twenty thousand and one, may be when it’s done Y way. I love the journey, the unknown, and I hope, with each story that I create and pen, I am able to take my readers on the same journey’s of ups/downs/and of course, many, many twists and turns.

Now, for next week, I’ve chosen these three authors so make sure you go to their sites and check out not only their writing processes but also the authors they tag. Who knows, you may find a new author to read!

Yvette Hines:

TakinSexy2

Website: http://yvettehines.com 

Bio:

I’m just Yvette Hines. An erotica author that loves pleasurable hours between the sheets. Whether it is a blended tale of interracial lovers, the clandestine bite and wicked passion of a paranormal lover or the sting of a commanding whip against tender flesh. Even better, make my day and toss in two gorgeously, decadent men who only want to pleasure their woman. Oooh, yeah, now we’re talking. I write erotica because I love it. I’m a Scorpio, so I’m sensual by nature and that just makes me naughty. {giggle}

I’ve been penning erotic tales since 2007, on the hedonistic side of the romance genre. But, I’m eclectic by nature, so I bet I can tell you things that would surprise you. You ready?

I’m married to my best friend. A guy that makes me laugh ’til I can’t breathe. A man who steals my breath every time he walks into a room. A partner that isn’t afraid to bend me over his knees whether I’m good or bad. Oops, that might be one of those TMI moments. {side lip bite} I believe in happily ever after like the rising of the sun depended on it. To me, sex and romance together is essential as gravity to humans remaining firmly planted on earth, they are a connected must. Still haven’t shocked you yet, well then, what would you say if I told you I’m a Christian. Hmm, that made you pause didn’t it. I’m also a part of Christian Erotica Romance Writers. I know, most of you are thinking that is an oxymoron. No problem, it is just who I am.

I enjoy long walks on the beach… well, I do, but really I love meeting readers, going to conference, writing with my fellow authors in a coffee shop, attending BDSM events and Christmas.

Oh, now we are getting to the good stuff. What do I write: Short and Sexy, Sensual Erotica. Yup, that’s me, SASSE Yvette Hines. So, do I only write short stories, primarily. Heck, we live in a society where a lot of people have to have 2-3 jobs, so it doesn’t leave a lot of time to finish a bunch of full length manuscripts. So, I try to give quality short stories. {If you don’t get that from one of my books, send me an email. Please don’t post it to my Facebook page, my group loop, ARe Cafe or blast me on Amazon or ARe store. Just drop me a respectable line and I’ll thank you for your honesty and grow stronger.} Contemporary interracial erotic romance stories are my main releases. I also write paranormal, menage and fantasy. What is my favorite thing to write? I’m glad you asked, Holiday stories with BDSM themes.

Well, I think I have said enough at the moment. Feel free to drop me a line or ask me questions anytime.

Keepin’ It SASSE! {KIS!}

A Naughty Little Christmas boxset–Opal Carew’s excerpt

Friday, November 22nd, 2013

Happy Friday to all!!

Today’s excerpt comes to us from Opal Carew and her story in the A Naughty Little Christmas boxset. Her story is titled, Christmas Angel. I don’t know about y’all but I’m always good with having an angel around! Check it out!

Excerpt of “Christmas Angel” by Opal Carew (writing as Amber Carew)

A loud clatter jolted Nicholas Berringer from a sound sleep. He sat up and shoved his fingers through his hair, pushing it back off his face, waiting for any other sound to give him a clue as to what had awakened him. A clunk, definitely from the next room, sent Nick scrambling to his feet. He rushed to the bedroom door and cautiously pushed it open. He fully expected to come face-to-face with an armed burglar.
To his total surprise, he stood gazing at an angel.
He blinked, then shook his head.
The beautiful woman standing in the middle of his living room wore a white gown that glittered in the moonlight, with soft waves of pale blond hair floating to her hips, and wings of downy white feathers that looked so real he could almost swear they were a part of her.
“Who are you?” His voice came out in a whispered tone, full of awe.
What was wrong with him? Bowled over by some woman dressed in an angel costume who had broken into his home!
He drew up his shoulders and demanded, “What are you doing here?”
Her large, luminescent eyes blinked a couple of times.
“I … do not know,” she said in a lilting French accent.
Her words, like a half-forgotten melody from his childhood, washed over him in gentle waves. That voice stirred something deep inside him.
Damn. He had to shake himself out of it! She might look like an angel, but Nicholas didn’t believe in angels. In fact, he didn’t believe in much of anything, especially when it came to women.
“What do you mean, you don’t know? Do you always walk into other people’s apartments in the middle of the night?”
Her fingertips grazed the velvet, paisley cushion on the arm of his burgundy leather sofa as she glanced around in bewilderment, then her fingers clutched the back of the couch as if needing the support to keep standing.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to intrude.”
He stepped toward her and her eyes widened and she stepped backward and bumped into the tree, which started to topple sideways. Nicholas leaped forward and grabbed it just before it knocked over the stained glass lamp on the occasional table. He set the tree back in place.
She seemed a little inept to be a thief.
Maybe she’d gone to a Christmas party—some costume affair from the look of her outfit—and had a little too much wine.
He retrieved two glittering glass ball ornaments, which had rolled across the taupe carpet and bumped against the raised hearth of the fireplace, then re-hung them on the tree branches.
He surveyed her face—heart shaped, with a pert little nose and full, inviting lips—and the bluest eyes he’d ever seen. Wide and bewildered.
“Do you live in the building?”
“No, I do not think so.”
She stepped forward and stumbled on the hem of her skirt. He reached out and caught her elbow so she wouldn’t fall and she leaned against him for support. The warm softness of her body against his sent his hormones into an uproar.
He eased her to her feet and released her immediately, concentrating on reigning in the tumultuous effect she had on him.
Her lips turned up in a delicate smile.
Merci.”
Despite the powerful sexual effect she had on him, she seemed quite fragile. An intense feeling of protectiveness he’d never known he possessed surged through him. Her effect on him certainly was unusual.
He guided her to the sofa. “Why don’t you sit down and I’ll get you a drink?”
She lowered herself onto the couch and he fetched a glass of orange juice from the kitchen. Brandy might have been better, but he didn’t know what, if anything, she’d been drinking already.
He handed her the glass, then sat down on the chair beside her. They sat quietly for a few moments while she sipped her juice.
“You live here alone?” she asked.
“Yes, that’s right.”
She rested her hand on his arm. Warmth seeped into him at her gentle touch.
“I think being alone is not something you like.” She glanced at him with luminous, blue eyes and their gazes locked.
He wanted to protest, wanted to deny her words to himself, but he couldn’t. It was true. He wanted a woman in his life. A partner who would give his life meaning, give him a reason for coming home at night, but his fear of being hurt overrode that need.
