Mid Week Tease – She Knows Exactly What She’s doing – a snippet from Untangle Me

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the beautiful, Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

For the remainder of this year, I’m sharing snippets from each of my four other books. I’ll share more from In the Blind next year. Last week, I shared from Taking Chances.

This week, I’m going to share a snippet from Unravel Me In this snippet: Ivy has arrived at the club to meet Seth for their first date. She’s been searching for him and from her spot on the dance floor, she finally found him. Enjoy!

______________

From the center seat at the bar, Seth’s direct stare held her captive. A new song excited the crowd and cheers surrounded them, but neither of them paid it any attention.

His jacket and tie were gone, giving her a closer look at his all-male body. The top button on his white shirt was undone. She wanted to undo the rest and get a glimpse at what lay underneath. Round shoulders tapered to his waist. She bit her lip as she imagined his length.

He made no move to come to her, his elbow still rested on the bar. He was a man waiting for the world to come to him.

Not the world. Her.

The comfortable confidence and the heat shining in his eyes turned her on. She swayed her hips to the hypnotic beat. Her hands felt their way up her thighs, around her hips, and an inch past her waist, he got up and walked towards her.

In no time, his feet stepped in between hers and together they rocked to the music. The drums and base from the band pushed a rhythm into her body, driving her desire. Their fingers interlaced. She snuggled closer and breathed in his clean musky scent.

She wanted to touch him, but he kept a hold on her hands. He pushed them both behind her, causing her back to arch and her breasts to press deliciously into his hard body. Heat rolled through her. She let her head fall back, exposing her neck.

His lips brushed across her collarbone. They continued to rock back and forth, their hips swaying and rubbing together. He took her wrists in one hand and his other stroked down her neck, over her shoulder, caressed the side of her breast, and around her waist to land on her butt. He squeezed her ass and pressed her into the hard ridge of his cock. She lowered her chin and moaned as she took in his expression filled with raw desire. A slow devilish smile lit his features and sent a tremble through her.

The song ended and another began while they continued their dance. He let go of her hands and she wrapped them around his neck. Both of his hands molded her ass. She nuzzled his neck, taking a nibble and a few kisses as she breathed him in. She wanted more.

Lots more.

She made her way closer to his mouth. Before she stole a kiss, she looked into his eyes. His brown eyes had darkened to the color of night, matching his hair. She sucked on her lower lip.

“You know what you’re doing, right?” he asked.

BLURB:

Ivy’s revenge on the people behind her family’s downward spiral is simple and it’s working. There’s no need to long for help from the wealthy business owners who turned their backs on her father. Ivy may be worn out, but she’s finding herself again after joining the local BDSM club.

Seth has it all. He has homes around the world and the little red speedster he dreamed of as a little boy, but none of the things he can buy satisfy him, not the socialites hanging on his arm or the submissives falling at his feet. Then, he hires Ivy to plan his next event.

Seth and Ivy enjoy each other’s company in and out of the planning stages for Seth’s charity event. Their playful bets lead them to a first date. When their secret kinks are revealed, the pair fall deep, but it’s not meant to last. Past hurts come back to haunt Ivy. Now, it’s time for Seth to use all he’s learned, regardless if he can win back the girl.

A Tasty Treat – Bought for Christmas by Doris O’Connor

bigstock-Winter-Forest-56265137 - happy holidays

Christmas has arrived early this year. :D One of my favorite authors is here and she’s brought a tasty treat! I’ve had Doris O’Connor on the blog several times this year celebrating her new releases. Check them out if you missed any. I just love having her here. Her books are so delicious and this one is another must read. Prepare to be hooked.

____________

Thanks so much for having me on your blog today with my Christmas Story, Bought for Christmas.  :)

Emilia Duncan is in sore need of a miracle this Christmas, never more so then when she finds out that she has been sold to The Beast to save her father’s company.

Not honouring the contract is out of the question. Besides, she has been lusting after Hunter Monahan for as long as she can remember. Her father’s former friend has starred in every one of her erotic dreams, since she was old enough to have them.

A weekend of debauchery is what she signs up for… She doesn’t count on falling in love with the man behind the scars. This man she cannot resist, and as secrets spill and emotional walls come tumbling, maybe she will get that miracle she needs.

It is Christmas, after all…

boughtforchristmas1mBlurb:

~Editors Pick~

I’m the beast, haven’t you heard….

Christmas is supposed to be a time for miracles and one will surely be needed when Emilia Duncan finds herself sold to the beast to save her father’s company. Having lusted after the much older, enigmatic man for as long as she can remember, spending the Christmas weekend as his submissive will satisfy her raging libido, but can she protect her heart?

Bear Shifter Hunter Monahan cannot stand idly by when Emilia is thrown to the wolves. There is only one shifter who will get his claws into her and that’s him. The contract ensures her submission for the weekend. Too bad his bear wants much more than that.

Hunter is used to hiding behind his gruesome scars, but in the bid for Emilia’s heart, that is not an option this time.  Isolated in his cabin, it’s not just the snow that melts.

Excerpt:

“I said you’re mine, kitten,” he finally said, and Emilia’s heart leapt for joy. “You always will be, but I want to see you happy. You don’t need to be settled with a cynical, scarred bear shifter like me, especially as your father will never talk to you again, if you do.” He put his hand up when she was going to interrupt him, and continued.

“No, let me finish. He is your father, and I know you well enough to know that you love him and that good for nothing brother of yours. Despite what you said to them when you left, you could no more turn your back on them than you could stop breathing, and that’s one of the many things about you that I…”

His bear growled, and Emilia forgot to breathe at the struggle she sensed in him. She scooted closer and put her hand on his tense thigh.

“You what, Sir? Please don’t clam up on me now,” she said.

A grim smile kicked up the corner of his mouth, and she leant in closer to kiss that spot. A growl erupted from his chest, and before Emilia could blink she was on the floor with him towering above her. Right now he didn’t look very much in control of his bear, and that thought sent adrenaline coursing through her body.

Holding himself off of her with his hands placed next to her head, and his arms locked, he ground his groin against hers and the solid heat of his erect cock meant that Emilia’s hormones took over. Moisture flooded her underwear, and her nipples tried to poke through the soft fabric covering them. As comfortable as her jumper was the fabric chafed against the sensitive peaks, and Emilia bit her lip to stop from whimpering her need.

Hunter groaned and bending his head claimed her mouth in an earth shattering kiss that left her breathless and so needy she was going to scream if he didn’t do something other than kiss her.

He pulled away, and the heat in his gaze sent her arousal into fever pitch. Emilia shifted her legs wider, and they both groaned as he settled himself right between her legs.

“Fuck it, Emilia. I can’t do this anymore. I want you too damn much.”

Hunter’s voice came out distorted, and more of his bear showed as his muscles expanded and he grew bigger above her.

“Then have me, all of me, please.” Emilia gasped her reply, all too aware of the barely leashed aggression that poured out of his very pores. It should send her running, yet it had the opposite effect on her. Beads of perspiration slid into her eyes, clouding her vision. Trapped as she was under his bulk, her clothes felt heavy and restrictive, and Hunter seemed to burn hotter still, as he grew perfectly above her. His nostrils flared and he inhaled roughly, as though he, too, had trouble drawing air into his lungs. Emilia blinked to clear her vision, and she couldn’t tear her gaze away from the sight of his fangs. His incisors grew longer, more menacing somehow in the orange glow from the fire, and she didn’t dare breathe when he dipped his head and ran those lethal teeth along her neck.

“This is your last chance to cry red, kitten. This time when I fuck you, I will claim you, body and soul. You will be mine, to carry my mark, so that everyone will know who you belong to. I want to cover you in my cum, bite you all over, and leave my marks on you forever. Do you understand me?”

Emilia nodded, utterly unable to get her voice to work, and Hunter threw his head back and roared. The vibrations of that growl shook the very ground they lay on, and she locked her ankles behind his ass to enable her to grind her hips against the solid bulge in his jeans. So close. God, she was so close already, if only….

Hunter bucked and dislodged her, until she lay winded, face down on the rug. Hunter yanked her jumper up and her leggings down, and the first hard, stinging swat of his hand on her ass took her breath away. Several more followed in quick succession, and then he lifted her on her knees, and pushed her upper body back down into the rug. Her jumper gave way with an audible rip, as he used his claws to get if off her.

“Do. Not. Move.” Every growled word was accentuated by another swat to her ass. Heat spread across her skin, and she jumped when he replaced his hands with his teeth, while pushing several fingers into her wet pussy.

Emilia whimpered and mewled like the kitten he called her, as he fucked her with his fingers, while marking her body with his teeth just like he’d promised, until her skin was just a mass of hot sensation. Up and down her spine into the hollow of her back, over her ass and the insides of her thighs, until she didn’t know which part of her he hadn’t reached.

Pinned in place by his clawed hand on her shoulder, and his fingers buried deep inside her, keeping her teetering on the edge of her release, she had nowhere to go.

Emilia whined when he withdrew his fingers, and Hunter pushed his digits, slicked by her arousal, into her mouth, and smacked her ass again. Emilia bit down, and the taste of her arousal mixed with his blood, and Hunter grunted his approval.

“Fuck, yes. Do that again.”

His claws sliced through her shoulder, while he dug his fingers deeper into her mouth and jaw. The pain just added to her arousal until her whole body felt on fire. Teetering on the edge, she screamed, as he ran his thick cock through her wet slit and then drove in deep.

“I’m going to fuck you so hard, baby. You’re mine.”

Doris Author PicAuthor Bio

Glutton for punishment would be a good description for Doris… at least that’s what she hears on an almost daily basis when people find out that she has a brood of nine children, ranging from adult to toddler and lives happily in a far too small house, cluttered with children, pets, dust bunnies, and one very understanding and supportive husband. Domestic goddess she is not.

There is always something better to do after all, like working on the latest manuscript and trying not to scare the locals even more than usual by talking out loud to the voices in her head. Her characters tend to be pretty insistent to get their stories told, and you will find Doris burning the midnight oil on a regular basis. Only time to get any peace and quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.

She likes to spin sensual, sassy, and sexy tales involving alpha heroes to die for, and heroines who give as good as they get. From contemporary to paranormal, BDSM to F/F, and Ménage, haunting love stories are guaranteed.

SatSpanks – Feeling Exposed – a snippet from In the Blind

click to visit the Saturday Spankings blog

Welcome, I’m so glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my new release, In the Blind.

Last Time:  Rob and Jane have started their counseling session with Mistress Charlie. Jane filled out the pre-questionnaire and thinks she’s ready, until the first question. This Week: I’ve skipped nothing again. Remember, Mistress Charlie has asked Jane when she knew her ex wasn’t right for her and so far she’s not answering. Enjoy!

“I’ll continue if you answer the question and I promise to answer a question as well.” He leaned down next to her and nibbled on her ear while his hands curved around her breasts and his thumbs flicked over her nipples.

She moaned, wanting more of his touch, but not wanting to expose the wound Adam had inflicted.

“What have you learned so far?” Mistress Charlie sat beside them.

“She enjoys my control, and even your voyeurism, but she doesn’t like to confess things that have brought her pain.”

She felt naked in a whole new way as he undressed her in more ways than one. Pressure built at the backs of her eyes.

In the Blind cover

BLURB:

Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together.

An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.

5 Stars: “The sex scenes were beyond hot. Jane and Rob had crazy chemistry in every scene really.” –Sassy Southern Book Blog

4 stars: “There was humor, some angst, romance, and of course, I already mentioned the incredible sex.  You’ll be quite satisfied by the end.  I know I sure was.” –Cocktails and Books

4.5 Stars: “The story grabs your attention in the first chapter, has you turning pages to see how the story develops and was well written” – In the Pages of a Good Book

Mid Week Tease – Assumptions Lead to Trouble – a snippet from Taking Chances

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the birthday girl, Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

For the remainder of this year, I’m going to share a snippet from each of my four other books. I’ll get back to In the Blind next year to get you excited about the next book in the series.

This week, I’m going to share a snippet from Taking Chances. In this tease:  It’s the day after Lydia and Jake come together the first time. Lydia has overheard that her hero is seeing Gina, the mean girl in the office, or at least he was last week. Enjoy!

______________

Last Friday was last week and long before yesterday. Jake hadn’t claimed he was celibate, but was he dating Gina? It certainly would explain the attention Gina had been paying her the last couple of days. Last night, she had given her body and she was tempted to give him more, but how could she now? She had no desire to enter a sex triangle. Tears filled her lower eye lids and threatened to overflow.

Gina. Why did it have to be Gina?

If Jake couldn’t see past Gina’s veneer, there was no way he would value what Lydia could offer. She forced her chin to stay high as a tear rolled down her check.

The door creaked open. “Lydia?”

“Leave me alone, Jake. I’ll be out in a minute.” She angled her face away from the door, and their stare caught in the mirror.

He stormed into the bathroom.

He knelt at her side. “Honey, please talk to me. Tell me what happened.” His thumb wiped away the next tear ready to fall.

“Why didn’t you tell me you were seeing Gina?”

“What? I’m not. Who put that idea in your head?”

“Gina.”

He lowered his head. He was caught. Lydia had to smile. Jake was no different. Men were scum. She could take comfort in their consistency.

His hands took hers. He rubbed his thumbs over the backs of her hands. She instinctively squeezed back, trying to take the last minutes back. She still wanted the possibility of a future with him, and the realization caused the ache to deepen.

His gaze found hers.

“Gina is an unattached submissive, and she frequents the club, as do I. I may not be in a relationship, but I do seek to fulfill my needs and needs of other unattached subs. Gina knows full well the extent of our scenes. I have never seen her outside of the club.”

“What does that mean? You touch her, but you don’t care about her?”

“You could look at it that way—”

She removed herself from his touch and found solace on the other side of the small room.

“That’s … I don’t know. I don’t understand.” Her sight focused on the floor as she tried to reconcile the man she thought she knew to the one she saw now.

“Lydia, ask me questions, or let me explain. Don’t make assumptions.”

“Assumptions!” She turned abruptly to face him. A big breath allowed her to calm her voice. “I’m not assuming anything. You just told me. At the club you touch other woman regularly. No wonder you don’t want me there. I’d probably put a crimp in your style.”

“Lydia, I don’t—”

“You don’t want a relationship,” she said and walked toward him. “We never made any promises to each other. No plans were made. It’s okay, really.” Her chest ached, but she wouldn’t let him see. She stood tall, shoulders back, and her hands gripped into her thighs like a lifeline.

The room was quiet as they stared at each other. Quietly he stepped around her and walked to the door. He was walking out, predictable.

He stopped at the door, locked it, and returned to her.

“We may not have voiced our promises, Lydia, but I don’t always make my motives known. I haven’t yet mentioned the club because we simply haven’t had time to discuss it, and to be honest, I’m not sure you’re ready.”

“Ready?”

“Do you know what would happen if I were to take you to the club?” He slipped around her and sat in the chair. His hand snaked around her hips.

“No.” Sweat broke out on her forehead, and nerves danced in her chest.

He pulled, and she landed across his lap. One hand held her upper body down, and the other fought to gain access between her thighs.

“Open. Now.”

His deep command had no problem cutting through her crumbling resolve.

His fingers found her bare and now wet pussy. “I’m not going anywhere, and you, my sweet gullible Lydia, will be receiving your first real punishment.”

“You—”

“I advise you to be quiet now.”

 ____________

takingchances1m

BLURB:

Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

Review from BDSM Book Review: Story Rating: 5 out of 5 paddlesSting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5 “S.J. Maylee’s story is one of beauty and well researched or perhaps well experienced. The journey that is embarked upon is gently done instead of pushed. Though a short story, this is well developed and the BDSM scenes are well written. It is not often that a short story can convey the beauty that a Dominant and submissive relationship can have.”

Review from Romancing the Book: Rose that Rules All “The chemistry between Jake and Lydia is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching.”

Character Interview from Dream Across Time by C.R. Moss

Please help me welcome fellow Evernight Publishing author, C.R. Moss. She’s brought her new release Dreams Across Time, a tasty excerpt, and an insightful interview with the heroine, Evelyn Sheridan.

 

DreamAcross Time by +C.R. Moss
Series: Raritan Manor Ranch, Book 1
Genres: Paranormal, Time Travel, Erotic Romance
Heat Level: 3
Word Count: 32, 880
ISBN: 978-1-77233-067-0
Editor: Tricia Kristufek
Cover Artist: Sour Cherry Designs

 

Blurb:
A woman in love. A ghost in need. A man possessed.
Evelyn Sheridan is in love with Raritan Manor Ranch’s resident ghost,
Quinn, but can only experience his embrace in her dreams.
Quinn VanAlder, who doesn’t realize he’s a ghost, loves Eve and wishes
she’d stop saying they can’t be together.
While at the ranch, Alex VanAlder arrives for a visit, and Evelyn’s hopes
rise. Perhaps she will be able to have a real relationship after all. Alex, though,
has no interest in Evelyn. Yet, every time the house cat, Myrddin, comes
around, Alex feels like a man possessed and wants Eve with a passion.
Caught between loving a ghost and putting up with a man who can’t make up
his mind, Evelyn is at a loss. Can the magic of the ranch help Evelyn to stop
being caught between two worlds?

Character’s name: Evelyn Sheridan

What book can s/he be found in: Dream Across Time, book 1 of the Raritan Manor Ranch series

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
– I’m originally from Texas, just graduated college, and as a graduation present, my parents let me take the summer off from their ranch to travel with my best friend, Julie. Turns out the place I’ve been dreaming about is her Aunt’s home outside of the Las Vegas, NV city limits.

If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
– Take in a show, eat at a five star restaurant and go to one of the spas.

If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
– I think she’d do fine. She’s been on ranches before, so she knows a thing or two about horses and riding. Plus, I believe she and Cassandra would get along famously.

What’s your take on Alex VanAlder?
– I try not to speak ill of people, but that man is infuriating one minute and all nice and charming the next. He comes off as a bit of an ass.

Where do you see yourself in the future? What do you hope to accomplish?
– I see myself living with my love and creating a family together.

If you could time travel and/or live anywhere in the world, where would you go and/or where would that be?
– I’m living right where I want to be now, but if we were to travel together, I think vacationing in Hawaii or Australia would be great.

Evelyn allowed him to lay her down on the hay and didn’t protest when he lifted her top. Enraptured by the heady sensations of his kisses on her bare skin, she lost track of the world around her. Before she knew it, her clothes were off and discarded. She lay naked and submitted to his apprising contemplation.

His gaze, smoldering with sexual hunger, followed the path his hands made down her shoulders to her breasts. Warm palms massaged her mounds, then moved on, exploring her body, caressing her down to her toes. Waves of desire rolled through her.

Quinn’s lips trailed over her body, tracing the course his hands had. His kisses began with each foot, then coursed up her skin, sweetly kissing her navel before traveling up. When he reached her breasts again, he outlined each rosy peak with the tip of his tongue.

Gasping in sweet pleasure, she arched her back, inviting him to take her fully. He understood the willing invitation and suckled on one nipple, then the other as his hands resumed their discovery of her body and slipped between her legs. His touches sent shivers of delight through her that ebbed and flamed with each of his movements.

Evelyn, never feeling such pure and explosive pleasure before, reveled in the euphoria coursing through her. She yearned for more and shifted so he could access her easier.

He stopped, breathing in heavy pants. “My sweet, innocent Evelyn, I have waited so long for this, but I shall stop if you want me to.”

“What do you mean, stop?” her sultry voice questioned.

Quinn lay on top of her and kissed her. His body fit hers perfectly, and his cock pushed at her through his pants. That’s when she understood. An aching need she never felt before brewed within her. Returning his kiss with just as much force, she put her hands between their bodies.

“Evelyn?” Quinn propped himself up on his elbows.

She didn’t respond. Her desires had taken over. She worked quickly to remove his shirt, exposing his hairless, smooth and soft chest and abdomen. He quivered when her fingers traced his muscles. She leaned up and gave his pectoral a quick kiss.

“Evelyn, does this mean…?”

“Yes.” She pulled him down to her, taking his mouth with demanding command. She sensed the thrill of his arousal once he removed his pants. Their bodies entwined, skin to skin, woman to man. She needed more.

Inspiration for the Band of Friends series by Cait Jarrod

Click to see all the Inside Looks here at SJs

Please help me welcome Cait Jarrod. She’s here sharing from her brand new release, the 2nd book in her Band of Friends series, Mystic Hearts. First up, Cait is going to share her inspiration for the series. Welcome, Cait! :D

________________

I’ve often been asked why I chose a circle of friends to write about for my first series.

Bringing a new story about the tight knit group of friends from Fredericksburg, Virginia, was like coming home, especially since I’ve lived in the area all my life. The friends I’ve made over the years, and have continued to keep in touch with, are much like the people in this book—minus the bombs and gunfights. Instead of a weekly cocktail hour, we get together at least once month at a winery, brewery or the lake.

Mystic Hearts, The Band of Friends series, Book 2

MysticHearts-evernightpublishing-smallpreviewNothing is as it seems….

Temptation landed at Special Agent Larry Newman’s feet—literally. Charlene Smith captured his heart after he rescued her from terrorists two months ago. A failed relationship and being an abused child have turned him into a loner and workaholic. The scars weigh heavy on him and keep him from pursuing her. So what’s a guy to do when the woman he pines for passes out in front of him while working a case?

Battling psychological wounds from abduction is easier than coming face to face with the sexy FBI agent she’s fantasized about for months. A single mother, avoiding the drama that dating would bring to her son’s life, she allows Larry close only in her dreams. Now, she’s second-guessing her decision. Should she have a relationship with this man who makes her feel alive just by being close?

As the couple forges into an abyss of emotions, they plow through secrets and criminals, and fight for the one thing that’s worth fighting for—each other.

Here’s an excerpt from a Cocktail hour, just before the guys arrive. The things good friends say to one another….

“I figured you’d be uptight and would need to blow off steam,” Celine said around a mouthful of margarita.

“Nope. I’m declaring Cocktail Hour an Andrew-free zone,” Charlene said.

Celine choked. “You had sex!”

“Shush!” Pamela’s eyebrows slashed over her blue fierce eyes. “This is a PG establishment.”

“Sorry,” Celine said with a small, mortified smile.

Pamela gazed over her shoulder into the café.

No one watched them except for the bartender. He eyed Celine.

“No foul,” Pamela said then faced Charlene. “Fess up, you have.”

“How’d you two get the idea I had sex from me not wanting to talk about Andrew?”

Celine and Pamela exchanged a silent conspirator glance.

Oh, boy. So, much for wondering if she should talk about Larry, they’d do it for her.

“Larry?” Pamela’s normally welcoming smile transformed into calm tone and she arched an eyebrow at Charlene.

If she hadn’t known Pamela, she’d actually have been nervous and answered immediately. As it was, Charlene would use this time to collect her thoughts and work out what to say. Hanging out on the pier, her and Larry chatting with one another in a way that was so comfortable she felt like she’d done it forever. Well, until her mouth ran away from her and confided her feelings. After that, things between them had become awkward.

Her mind jumped to the kiss next to her mom’s car…phew…she fanned herself and sipped more of her drink to camouflage the heat rising from her body to her face.

“That does it.” Celine gulped her drink. “I want some of what Charlene’s having.”

“Oh, no. You can’t. We’re exclusive.” Charlene looked at her half-empty drink. “This stuff is like truth serum.”

SatSpanks – Give the man what he wants – a snippet from In the Blind

click to visit the Saturday Spankings blog

Welcome, I’m so glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my new release, In the Blind.

Last Time:  Rob and Jane have started their counseling session with Mistress Charlie. Jane filled out the pre-questionnaire and thinks she’s ready, until the first question. This Week: I’ve skipped nothing. Remember, Mistress Charlie has asked Jane when she knew her ex wasn’t right for her. Enjoy!

What was your clue?” He got up and stepped behind her, rubbing her shoulders, and then his touch came around and down the front of her shirt. “Why was Adam not the right man for you?” He pulled her shirt open.

She hadn’t bothered to wear a bra, preferring the touch of his shirt against her skin. Cool air brushed across her exposed breasts, and the soft tapping of Mistress Charlie’s flats against the wood floor signaled her return, adding a new layer to the scene. The question she wanted to ignore was lost to her as she relaxed under his control and her own exhibitionism. Heat pooled between her thighs.

BLURB:

Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together.

An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.

5 Stars: “The sex scenes were beyond hot. Jane and Rob had crazy chemistry in every scene really.” –Sassy Southern Book Blog

4 stars: “There was humor, some angst, romance, and of course, I already mentioned the incredible sex.  You’ll be quite satisfied by the end.  I know I sure was.” –Cocktails and Books

4.5 Stars: “The story grabs your attention in the first chapter, has you turning pages to see how the story develops and was well written” – In the Pages of a Good Book

Mid Week Tease – At His Mercy from In the Blind

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the lovely Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m sharing from my latest release, In the Blind.

Last Time: Rob received advice from his best friend. This Week: I’m sharing a tease from a sexy scene with Rob and Jane, but I’m not telling you were in the book you’ll find this scene. I’m so naughty. Enjoy!

______________

She tugged on the rope and got nowhere, not even chafing on her wrists. Being at his mercy was a complete turn on. She was his for the taking. Her hips rocked with her growing need for his touch.

“I was afraid to hope for you, afraid I couldn’t give you what you needed.”

“You gave me what I didn’t even know I needed.”

“There’s so much more I want to explore with you, and now we’ll have the time to do it. Nothing is in our way. This is our time.” He crawled between her legs and rested his head on her belly.

“I like how that sounds. It’s our time.”

“You know what else I like?” A naughty smile relaxed his face. “I like taking away your choices.” He nipped at her hip and then smothered the sting with his tongue.

“I’m at your mercy, Sir.” She rolled her hips.

“I never thought of myself as a lucky man, but I was wrong.” He crawled up to hover over her, his lips brushing just above hers. “I want to discover all the ways that bring you pleasure.” He took hold of her breast, molded it in his hand, his gaze locked on hers as she submitted to his touch.

She moaned and opened her mouth, wishing for him to claim her.

“That’s what I’ve been waiting for.” He let go of her breast, giving a quick pinch to her nipple as he slid down her body. “I want to know what drives you crazy with need.”

Her body felt like it was going up in flames. By sharing his needs, he was creating a new foundation of lust within her.

“I thought about your pussy all week.” He settled between her legs, pushing one thigh higher and the other over his shoulder.

Spotlight: Board Indiscretion (Taking Advantage Book 3) by Jessica Jayne

Click the Spotlight image to see all the Spotlights here at SJs

Blurb:Board Indiscretion cover

Mark Olson isn’t just known for owning his three large care dealerships. He’s also known as a player, at least since his divorce. For a while, he believes he is satisfied as a member of Advantage Insurance Company’s board of directors and bedding a different woman every weekend. That is until someone decides to call his bluff.

Suzannah McCormick is the sweet girl working hard as the executive assistant to Advantage’s CEO. But underneath her saccharine southern charm is a vixen-in-waiting. She’s never been with a man that tapped into that side of her, but she set her sights on Mark Olson with high hopes.

Mark doesn’t realize his single status and his heart are in jeopardy.

Excerpt:

Since his divorce, he’d convinced himself that remaining single was what he wanted. It made things less complicated for his two pre-teen daughters. Shit! It made things less complicated for himself. But that lifestyle could also be quite lonely.

That’s where Suzie came in and complicated the hell out of his life. She was the executive assistant to the CEO of Advantage Insurance Company, Michael Herron, and well… Mark was a member of Advantage’s board of directors, had been for several years. He loved his position on the board. Aside from the small amount of prestige it carried, he’d made great friends with the other members, particularly the two younger board members—John Dorsey and Greg Snow. A relationship with Suzie could compromise his position on the board and with the members, but truth be told, he also loved his most recent position between her legs.

If only the situation was different.

A familiar giggle wafted in from the direction of the dance floor. The delicate sound stirred his cock to life. It stiffened against his black trousers instantly.  After several weeks of clandestine meetings involving dirty talk and hard fucks, he’d know that giggle anywhere. He’d heard it many times afterwards when they lay tangled in each other’s limbs. Turning his head in the direction of the dance floor, anger heated his face and his hands clenched into fists on the bar top at the sight he witnessed.

Sandwiched between two guys that he’d now refer to as dickheads, danced the woman that wreaked havoc on his single life status.  Her little black dress clung to her trim frame, emphasizing her small, but very perky breasts and showing off her figure that could easily grace the cover of any fashion magazine. Her legs stretched for miles and her creamy white skin contrasted nicely against the jet black of her dress. Flinging her silky blonde hair over her shoulder and down her back, her pink Pursecase carrying her iPhone dangled from her wrist as her hips gyrated against her two dance partners. The taller man dancing behind her slipped his hand over her hip and rested it over her low belly as he rubbed what Mark was sure to be a rock hard erection against Suzie’s ass.

What the fuck is she doing?

First, she never came to the Beach Club. Never. In all his regular visits to this club over the last couple of years, he had yet to see her in here once. Not once!  Second, she was practically dry-humping two guys in the middle of the dance floor. That wasn’t her typical style.

Suzie was one of those beautiful women that appeared to have the girl-next-door innocence. She didn’t dress too provocatively.  She was sexy, but in that way that was just natural. Her bubbly Southern charm won over all the men on the board of directors and Mark speculated it would win over anyone. He flirted with her, teasing her on board days to get a rise out of her. There’d always been a twinkle of mischief in her eyes when he flirted with her that would leave him questioning whether he knew her at all.

At last quarter’s board meeting, she left him dumbfounded when she responded to his flirtation with a proposition. After mulling it over for a bit, which actually had turned out to be a couple weeks, he called her bluff. He asked her over to his place for cocktails and she showed up. What he learned was that there was a lot more to Suzannah McCormick than met the eye. The rest was history.

Throwing back the last remnants of his whiskey, he stood from his stool, tossed some cash on the bar, and turned toward the dance floor. He wrestled with what his next move should be.
