Mid Week Tease – His Private Dungeon

MidWeekTeaseWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the awesome Sandra Bunino for giving me something to look forward to. I’m sharing once more from my story about Colin and Mary and I’m happy to report you’ll be able to read this story in a new Evernight anthology that releases in June! 😀

This pair has some ill-conceived notions about the other, but that’s all going to change. Last week, Mary started to break down the wall that Colin had erected. This week, I’m going to back up just a little so you can see what was going through Colin’s head as he waited for Mary to arrive for her interview.

____________

He pushed back from his desk and walked into the bathroom attached to his office. With a press to the side panel, it popped open. He turned the light dial located just inside the door and his private dungeon woke before his eyes. He cracked his knuckles and breathed in the clean earthy hints of leather.

Work had kept him too far from Club Voyage in the past year, not even the installation of this room had kept his kink close enough. He leaned against the spanking bench and gazed over his collection of paddles, crops, and floggers hanging on the wall. Above all else, he needed to keep his emotions under control and he knew denying his need to dominate put him on a quick path to misery.

Not much gave him gratification like a willing submissive waiting for his command, not even the closing of the perfect deal. He craved lifting a woman’s need for release and watching as the pleasure consumed her. He made up his mind right then to work long hours this week and to go to the club on Friday night.

He closed his eyes and concentrated on his breathing.

“Your interview is here.” Jen’s warn out voice called from his office and woke him from his meditation.

Perfect timing for Mary to enter, don’t you think. 😉 I can’t wait to share their full story with you. It’s hot, it’s heartbreaking, and I love it.  Unfortunately, these two are destined to misjudge and unravel each forward movement. They’re not going to make a happy ending easy. I know how it all works out and I have to say it’s quite delicious. 🙂

The In Progress Blurb:

Mary is determined not to be distracted by the devilishly handsome Colin whose business deal is halting a much needed park. Armed with a plan, she tries to ignore her growing attraction.

After reading her resume, Colin believes Mary isn’t right for him or his office. However, he’s about to risk his biggest business deal yet when Mary knocks him off his game. The pair gives in to their growing desires, but Mary’s plan might unravel everything they’ve been building.

Mid Week Tease – Changing His Mind

MidWeekTeaseI’m on a roll. Two weeks in a row, I’ve shared a tease. Love it!

I’m sharing again from my story about Colin and Mary. The pair has some ill-conceived notions about the other, but that’s all going to change. Last week, Colin got his first look at Mary. You could say her appearance took him off guard. Let’s see if she can continue to change his mind.

“You must spend a lot of time on your outreach commitments. Is it hard for you to balance work and your personal interests?”

She sat up straighter. “To be honest—”

“That’s all I ask.” He took hold of his pen without breaking his gaze from hers. With his thumb, he stroked the smooth surface back and forth and wondered if her pussy would be just as smooth.

“At times I have.” She crossed her legs and grabbed her knee with both hands. “But, I have learned from experience.”

“Would you expand on that?” He let go of the pen and sat back.

“I learned to only commit to the things I can finish. I’ve also learned not to deny myself the things I’m passionate about. Plus, the kids I work with help me to keep my head straight.”

“I can imagine. Will you continue spending time there?”

“I’ll always be there for the kids.” She uncrossed her legs and leaned on his desk. “Can I ask you something?”

“Sure, I’m an open book.”

“You already know if you’re going to hire me, don’t you? You knew before I walked in here.”

“Maybe.” He admired her for getting to the point. It showed she valued her time and his. His opinion of her doubled.

“Is there nothing I can do to change your mind?”

If it were only that easy. These two are destined to misjudge and unravel each forward movement. I know how it all works out and I have to say it’s quite delicious. 🙂

Mid Week Tease – Not What He Expected

MidWeekTeaseI’m back! It’s been a long time since I’ve done the Mid Week Tease. I’m happy to report I have something new to share with you today. In the weeks ahead, I’ll be sharing from my soon to be released book, the second in my Love Projects series.

Today, I’m sharing from the beginning of the WIP I’m polishing. Colin is about to see for the first time the gal that is going to unravel his life. Got to love a woman that can do that to a man.

“Your interview is here.” Jen’s warn out voice called from his office and woke him from his meditation.

Out of his sanctuary, but still hidden from view in his bathroom, his gaze slide past his very pregnant assistant and found an auburn haired beauty. He needed a moment to drink her in. The light kissed her hair in a sensual display of entwining colors. He followed the line of her pale skin down the length of her legs to dangerous looking spiked black heels. She was the perfect image of a wet dream. Not what he’d been expecting at all.

Fuck me.

Oh boy. Something tells me Colin’s day is not going to go as he planned. Gosh, he was so much fun to write. You can see my inspiration board for this WIP on Pinterest here.

Mid Week Tease: Nadia’s Slip and Ethan’s Catch

Mid-Week-Tease-Button-211x300

I’m teasing this week with a snippet from the first short in my NaNoWriMo project. I haven’t given the story a title or written the blurb. Maybe next year I’ll be more organized. Fingers crossed.

I can tell you this is the story of Ethan and Nadia. She’s wasting away in the mail room except for the frequent visits from CEO, Ethan. After Nadia accidentally learns Ethan’s secret, she plays hooky from work and contemplates quitting. He discovers her less than sickly state and tracks her down. I hope you enjoy.

Nadia walked into the club. The groovy beats had her swaying her hips. She’d found the elusive distraction.

Sitting at home and thinking about her decision and getting no where hadn’t done her any good. The day had gone to waste. Apparently, the thought of walking away from Ethan, even with the knowledge of what was in all those contracts, was incomprehensible. A shiver worked its way up her spine. Letting herself fall any further in love seemed like a good way to exit this life early.

Her friends were right. She needed a night of getting loose and connecting with her inner gypsy.

Her head whipped around. She could have sworn she’d seen Ethan across the dance floor.

“Just great.” Wanting to stop thinking about Ethan and actually doing it were two different things. The heavy weight of disappointment pulled her shoulders down. In that moment, she knew she couldn’t walk away from him, but she also knew he would never be hers. Their lives were too different.

Ethan wouldn’t come to a place like this, not on this side of town, not with this dingy crowd. This wasn’t his scene. Besides, he was probably hanging with Mrs. rich boobs tonight. She pinched her eyes closed and shook her head. Tonight was for letting go.

Thankfully, the DJ picked that moment to play one of her favorites. She hadn’t spotted her friends yet, but she wasn’t waiting any longer. She danced her way forward, a little shimmy in her shoulders, enjoying the bump and grind of the crowd.

A warm body came up behind her and a strong hand wrapped around her middle, pulling her back a step. She turned her head slightly and discovered her dance partner was the man she couldn’t get out of her thoughts.

She tripped over her own feet.

“Don’t worry. I’ve got you.”

“Sure, right now you do. What are you doing here?”

“Looking for you.”

Together they swayed back and forth and her tickle of desire skyrocketed to addiction. She felt her heart beat every where, from her ears all the way down to her pussy. Their bodies intertwined and their hips stayed locked together as they explored with their hands.

“You’ve been a naughty girl, Nadia.” He rocked his hard body against her. “You don’t look sick to me.”

I hope you enjoyed my Mid Week Tease. You’ll have to let me know if you want to know more about Ethan and Nadia.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Taking Chances

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from my soon to be released debut, TAKING CHANCES. It’s releasing this Friday!!

Taking Chances is the first in a series of books I’m calling The Love Projects. Taking Chances is the story of Lydia and Jake. The blurb is below. Today, I’m sharing 8 from the first chapter. THIS WEEK: While Lydia waits to find out who Jake will select for his project, she gets lost in one of her fantasies starring the man himself. Keep in mind, Lydia’s sitting in a board room surrounded by her colleagues and Jake. We start in her fantasy.

Once he settled her bottom on the table, he stepped in between her thighs. As he devoured her mouth in eager kisses, he popped the buttons on her blouse, unclasped her bra, and exposed her. Powerful hands molded her breasts. She let her needy body fall to the table to give him access to every inch of her.

“Lydia.”

The fantasy was in full swing now. Jake shouted her name. Oh, her name sounded sinful on his lips.

Oh my, he’s not shouting her name from her fantasy, lol. 🙂 Wonder what she’ll say once she realizes Jake’s been watching her. Taking Chances is risky business. <~ You can <tweet that> if you want.

I’ll reveal my cover this week. On Friday, I’ll celebrate the release. I hope you’ll join me.

Click here to add TAKING CHANCES to your Goodreads list

TAKING CHANCES unofficial 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 lovable 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.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. 🙂 Once again, I’m sharing from my just started WIP.

Gina’s still healing from divorce. Although she gets along with her ex, it’s his best friend, Marcus, that’s the last person she’d want to see on her night out at the local BDSM club, but that’s exactly who she ran into at the benches. Marcus can’t let this woman in need walk away and he gets her to bend over his spanking bench. Last Week: Gina remembered to count, but Marcus soon noticed something wasn’t right. He dropped the paddle, wanting to be sure Gina was in the right frame of mine This week: I’ve skipped nothing.

She dropped her head and squeezed her eyes shut, forcing the pressure in her eyes to retreat. She would not break, not here, not in front of Marcus.

“Whoa.” His reach swiped under her arms, lifting her. “I’ve got you.”

Chest to chest he held her tight and her resolve crumbled. Guilt consumed her like a fire racing across an empty field. She melted into him, not wanting to know why he felt so right.

It seems Marcus is the right man for the job after all. Who knew, definitely not Gina, lol. Are they enemies or could they actually be star-crossed lovers? <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Hope you’ll come back and find out more about these two. Poor Gina, will she ever get that release she’s looking for?

Weekend Writing Warriors – Warning Signs

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. 🙂 Once again, I’m sharing from my just started WIP.

Gina’s still healing from divorce. Although she gets along with her ex, it’s his best friend, Marcus, that’s the last person she’d want to see on her night out at the local BDSM club, but that’s exactly who she ran into at the benches. Marcus can’t let this woman in need walk away and he gets her to bend over his spanking bench. Last Week: Gina forgot to count and Marcus started from the beginning. This week: You’ll be glad to know she did start counting again. I’ve skipped a few lines.

Somewhere over the next couple swats, Gina remembered why she’d come back into the club tonight. Her knuckles turned white with the force of her grip. She gulped in a breath of air and waited for the next hit to land with its punishing kiss of heat, but none came.

Marcus stepped into her line of sight, just out of reach. The paddle was no longer in his hand.

“I’ll keep counting, Sir. Please, I need this.”

He lowered beside her and reached out to caress her fingers until she released her strangle hold. “I’ll finish, after I’ve determined you’re in the right frame of mind.”

Told you he was one of the good guys. He can tell something’s wrong. Marcus caught the warning signs. Will Gina reward him with the truth? <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Hope you’ll come back and find out more about these two. Poor Gina, she’s still looking for release or maybe just punishment, hmm …

Gina’s still healing from divorce.

Marcus can’t let this woman in need walk away and he gets her to bend over his spanking bench. Last Week: Marcus awakened her senses with the paddle. This week: I’ve skipped nothing.

The paddle rubbed over her right cheek and then smacked, rocking her whole body. She was surprised by the force behind the swat which was not her first mistake. What had she been thinking? Submitting to Marcus was on her list of things to never try. She had to give him more credit. He’d caught her off her game.

“We’ll start back at one each time you forget to count.” He smacked her other cheek.

I hope she starts counting soon, lol. Marcus caught her off her game, but will he receive her submission? <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Hope you’ll come back and find out more about these two. Poor Gina, she’s still looking for release. Maybe next week, maybe. 😉

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. 🙂 Once again, I’m sharing from my just started WIP.

Gina’s still healing from divorce. Although she gets along with her ex, it’s his best friend, Marcus, that’s the last person she’d want to see on her night out at the local BDSM club, but that’s exactly who she ran into at the spanking benches. Last Week: We learned Gina decided to take Marcus up on his offer and she bent over his spanking bench. This week: I’ve skipped nothing.

The paddle brushed over her lower back, across her hip, and down the length of her leg to her knee. His hand followed the paddle with a feather touch, allowing a soothing bliss to spread over her skin.

The room either quieted or she’d blocked the noise. She welcomed the peace, needing to remember why she was here. He repeated the pattern on the other side, drawing her in with his tenderness. She swallowed against the unwelcome thoughts threatening to break her concentration.

“I’ll give you twenty swats. I expect you to count them.”

This might be the calm before the storm, lol. She’s getting more than she bargained for.  <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Hope you’ll come back and find out more about these two. Poor Gina, she’s still looking for release. Maybe next week, maybe. 😉

Weekend Writing Warriors – A Vulnerable Moment

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. 🙂 Once again, I’m sharing from my just started WIP.

Gina’s still healing from divorce. Although she gets along with her ex, it’s his best friend, Marcus, that’s the last person she’d want to see on her night out at the local BDSM club, but that’s exactly who she ran into at the spanking benches. Last Week: Marcus offered to put their past aside and help her with her needs. This week: I’ve skipped several paragraphs. She and Marcus have come to an agreement. This might be the smartest or dumbest moment of her life. To say she’s vulnerable is an understatement. The first lines are his.

“Since we’ve never played together, I won’t be restraining you. We certainly don’t have that kind of trust. You understand how important it is not to move, correct?”

“Yes, Sir, I understand. I won’t move.” It pinched her last nerve to call him sir, but he was doing her a great service. For these few minutes, she’d give him the respect any Master in this club deserved.

He flipped her shirt up over her back, exposing her round ass.

He’s got her where he wants her.  <~ You can <tweet that> if you want. Who do you think will be most affected by this scene? I’m not even sure, but I can tell you it’s been fun finding out. Hope you’ll come back and find out more about these two. Poor Gina, she’s still looking for release. Maybe next week, maybe. 😉
