Lila Shaw author of Wild West Succubus

I’m a new fan when it comes to succubi, but I’ve been a fan of Lila Shaw’s for some time. I recently read Succubus Games and loved it. Below, you’ll find all the details on Lila’s newest succubi book, Wild West Succubus and why she likes to write about them. Please give her a warm welcome. Take it away, Lila. 🙂

Thanks, SJ, for having me over to talk about my latest release, Wild West Succubus from Liquid Silver Books.

It’s no secret that I adore writing about succubi. I’ve written shorts for two anthologies and three novelettes (Romance on the Go’s) featuring these ladies. I have a free read on Smashwords and ARe called Succubus Bites:  Tasmin. Wild West Succubus is my longest so far at novella length.

Why do I like writing about succubi so much?

They exude power. They are unapologetic in their love of sex. They’re smart and silly, fearless and vulnerable, humble and brash. They are every woman but with a common cross to bear–their sexuality comes at a predatory price. The succubus’s pleasure is achieved at the expense of her partner, drains his energy to fuel her. She is a sort of vampire. She’s the ultimate bad girl. Like an assertive heroine? Look no further than the succubus.

Wild West Succubus is about one bad girl in particular:  Priscilla. Though on the surface she’s cynical and hard, there’s a strong current of remorse flowing through her veins. The one man who sees and appreciates that in her is also the one sent to kill her–Hugo. Hugo is a gargoyle. I’ll tell you more about those critters some other day, or you can read the book and discover for yourself what they are. For now let’s learn more about a certain Wild West Succubus…

wildwestsuccubus_FINALCOVER - click to see on GoodreadsBlurb:

A woman damned…

Priscilla Goodnight, a widow in the harsh Kansas frontier, has a cattle ranch to run. She can’t afford to reveal any cracks in her tough exterior or indulge in sexual liaisons with her ranch hands. But a hungry succubus can only exercise so much self-restraint, making discretion, disguise and memory-wiping her top managerial skills.

The mysterious stranger who knows her darkest secret…

Priscilla doesn’t remember hiring the man with the wily smile and the flannel voice. At all. Men as physically appealing as Hugo Desmond rarely escape her bed, let alone her memory. And how is he able to move so fast, yet nobody notices but her?

Is she his target, his mission or his bait?

Hugo is a gargoyle—a specially-trained executioner—sent to purge the west of evil. With succubi falling squarely in demon territory, Priscilla has every reason to fear him … yet she can’t stay away. Hugo says he needs her help and wants to save her soul. But is redemption possible for a woman as wicked as Priscilla, or will love thaw her heart just enough for Hugo to crush it?

Excerpt:

A few of the men are laughing and eating breakfast, but as soon as I walk in, they grow silent … mostly.

“Morning, Miss Priscilla. Did you sleep well?” Fred asks, his last words ending with a snicker.

Most of the other men snicker too, all but Hugo, that is. He probably doesn’t know the rest well enough to be privy to their secrets.

Jesse slaps Gray on the back and Gray grins. Speaking through a mouth full of half-chewed biscuits, Gray says, “I slept like a titty baby myself.”

The others snort back their laughter. Hugo’s forehead furrows as he glances around the table.

I sigh. I don’t know why I expected better from Gray. But little boys must be taught their lessons, and the first one is don’t fuck with a succubus who holds your soul in hock.

After giving each man a smile in turn, I close my eyes and yank on Gray’s tether. He keels over and falls face first into the puddle of gravy on his plate.

“What the … Gray?” Jesse lifts Gray’s face from the plate and shoves him back against his chair, wide-eyed but unseeing. Mr. Yao’s savory sauce drips in long slimy strings from Gray’s nose. “Gray?” Jesse slaps Gray on the face a few times.

Gray isn’t home anymore. I slurp the last bits of his soul’s life-force in and breathe deeply as it spreads throughout every inch of my body. I am energized, immortal, powerful, and pissed off.

Hugo skewers me with his gaze, cold and hard. “Are you sure you want to do that? May raise more questions than it solves.”

What the hell is he talking about? Fuck him! Fuck all of them!

One by one, starting with Jesse, I lock gazes with each man around the table. As I ransack their recent memories, their expressions transform from mirth to horror to incoherent. The two newer hands I’ve never had to mind-wipe before—Winston and Jasper—fall asleep. The older hands will slowly regain their wits with what have been called devilishly hideous headaches. If any of them think they can take to their beds sick today, they’re dead wrong.

Hugo watches the entire proceedings, and when I get to him, my last target, he presses his lips into a thin line and resists my trespass into his mind. Those glacial blue eyes of his frost over and then seal shut, expelling me and slamming the door in my face.

How the hell is he able to do that?

With a snap of Hugo’s fingers, all motion, except his and mine, ceases. The clock stops ticking. A napkin casually tossed hovers an inch above the table’s surface. Mouths are frozen mid-word. Arms float rigidly in the air, and eyes stare blankly.

“Think, Pris,” Hugo repeats. His jaw is rigid, and his hands are curled into fists.

I stop trying to force my way inside Hugo’s mind. “Wh-what’s going on?” I wave a hand in front of Fred’s face, nearly threatening to put his eye out, but he doesn’t flinch, doesn’t even blink. I shove my chair away from the table and jump to my feet. “What kind of sorcery is this?”

Hugo slowly raises his eyes to mine. In measured words he says, “Give Gray back his soul.”

“I need it.”

“No.” He shakes his head. “You don’t.”

“He deserved what he got!”

“No. He didn’t. All you needed to do was mind-wipe him, just like the others. Sucking him dry is excessive. You don’t have to go that far. Besides that, we’re kinda short-handed. Do you really want to fall behind this time of year? Think about how hard it will be to find a replacement.”

The horror of this man’s cognizance of what I am grips me. “Who are you? What are you?” I take a few steps back, wondering if I should flee.

He lifts his eyes to mine. “I’m someone you should be very afraid of.”

“Afraid? Of you?” I throw my head back and laugh dramatically, just like those ladies on the stage. “Oh, little big man. I’m not afraid of any man.” But I am afraid of this one.

SurrenderToMe cover - click to see it on Goodreads

What happens when a Dominant falls for his not-so-submissive attorney?

Martin Abrams, owner of Master M’s BDSM club, has become unfulfilled with his lifestyle. Ever since his sub, Gracie, left to marry her true love, Martin has lost his way. Living the life of the head Dominant in his circle isn’t as appealing as it once was. Something seems to be missing.

Sassy lawyer Arianna Covington relocates to New York City after a humiliating divorce. She’s looking for a fresh start when she agrees to become Martin’s exclusive attorney. She’s intrigued by his domineering personality and wants to know why women kneel at his feet.

Their attraction is undeniable despite Ari’s initial beliefs that she will never submit to Martin’s desires. But Martin is up for the challenge. Arianna is more than he ever imagined in a woman. He vows to claim her heart, with or without the games. Who will surrender first?

Featuring Cade and Gracie from Make Me Stay.

Check out the hot and sexy trailer for a peek into the plot.

Surrender to Me is the sequel to Make Me Stay but both books stand alone so the reader can choose to read either one first. You may want to start with Make Me Stay to get the back story.

MakeMeStay_Medium

Can the sub teach the Dom to play?

Natural submissive Gracie Miller thought she had found her other half in Cade Jameson. Not only did he help her through a difficult time in her life, in the bedroom he brought her more pleasure than she could have ever imagined. They seemed perfect for each other.

Cade knew what he wanted in the bedroom. Gracie brought out his domineering side and ignited his passion. But he feared he was too dominant for this beautiful, naïve girl, who was so young and impressionable, so he ended their relationship.

Two and a half years later, Gracie returns to town a new woman. She had moved to the city and found a “Master” who showed her what she was truly capable of. Now she’s back and wants to show Cade exactly what kind of submissive she could be for him.

But after hearing all that she’s experienced, Cade now wonders if he’s dominant enough to satisfy her. Can he be the man Gracie needs him to be?

Facebook ~ Twitter

@readjennaowens

As it turns out Social Media is pretty social. Today I’m sharing my new bestie with you. I’ve never met Jenna in person, but with a couple of tweets I knew we were going to get along well. Today she releases her first Quickie and couldn’t be happier for her. You might catch us doing the happy dance on twitter today. PLUS, I put her on the hot seat and got her to answer a couple of questions. But first, check out her BLURB, below the Q&A you’ll find a hot little tease that you won’t want to miss and at the very bottom you’ll find Jenna’s BIO and the BUY LINK. Enjoy 🙂

BLURB:

Dr. Collins has always fantasized about the female students in his college classes. Many of those fantasies focused on doing naughty things right in his own office, but he never expected one of his students, a sexy girl named Elizabeth, would have fantasies of her own, and that he plays a starring role in them.

For the entire semester, Elizabeth had had fantasies about Dr. Collins. Now she wants the real thing. She’s not looking for a relationship. All she wants is him. Inside of her. And Dr. Collins doesn’t have an advanced degree for nothing. He’s a smart guy, and he’s going to take advantage of the opportunity that’s literally landed in his lap.

Q & A:

Picture your favorite place in the world. Now, can you tell us a little bit about the place you’ve pictured?

It would have to be at home spending time with my kids.  There are no people in the world who know, understand, love, and accept me like my children do.

Think of the last book you read that made a lasting impression on you. What was it that made such an impression?

I haven’t finished it yet, but I am in the process of reading The Hobbit for the very first time, after watching the movie twice and loving it.  I plan to read the entire series this year.

I have always loved the fantasy genre, although I regretfully have neglected it over the most recent years.

I like the whole unlikely hero scenario. I think we all secretly wish we could overcome evil and protect people!

What turns you on creatively?

I find ideas everywhere-television, books, real life.  There are stories waiting to be told or created everywhere you look!

How did the idea for your current release come to you?

I saw a submission call, and was like AH HA! By George, I’ve got it!

What quality do you most admire in yourself? 

I have a huge heart. I always try to see the good in people and situations.

Which living person(s) do you most admire?

Children who are fighting cancer and their families.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?

I sure would like to try to be a billionaire! You know, just to see if I like it or not. That’s a profession, right?  😉

What is your greatest extravagance?

One thing I used to treat myself to monthly was $20 worth of extra dark chocolate truffles from Godiva. These delicious little pieces of heaven were dark chocolate, with dark chocolate inside, and rolled in cocoa. Unfortunately, the Godiva store near me closed, and I have had to go without them for over two years. *sob sob sob*

Tell us one thing that’s on your bucket list?

I started having children while I was pretty young, so one of the things I have not been able to do much of that I really want to is travel. Hawaii tops the list of places I want to go, but there is so much of the world that I want to see and discover!

What is your favorite music (genre/artist/album/song)?

Oh man, I am an oddball here. I like a wide variety of music. Everything from Broadway tunes to The Carpenters, Disturbed to Zebra.  I like country and some pop, and my one son has recently made me a fan of Dubstep. There isn’t a genre that I won’t at least explore, and I generally find something that I like.

Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on now?

I have another EC for Men in the works, and the beginning chapters of 2 novels started. One is a sweet, erotic romance. In the other, I am going to try my hands at erotic horror.

EXCERPT:

“Show me,” Elizabeth demands.

“Wha…what do you mean?”

“I want you to show me how you jerk off, Dr. Collins. I want to watch you.” She struts back to the desk across from me, pulls her skirt up, sits down and places her well-manicured hand down inside her panties. She does not begin moving them.

I’m staring at her, stunned into inaction. Of course I had fantasized about this very thing, but now that it really is happening, I’m not as confident as I’d been when it was all played out in my head. In fantasy, I had control over what was going on. Right now, I have no idea what is going to happen.

Elizabeth pulls her hand out of her underwear and looks at me impatiently. “Do you want to watch me work my pussy or not?”

I nod.

“Then you’d better get going. Fair is fair.” She stands and slides her flip flops and panties off. I see her round, firm derriere as she turns, then sits back down on the desk, naked ass slapping against the wood,  her feet on opposite corners so I have a view of her perfect pussy, glistening and slightly gaping. Her fingers hover above her cunt, almost, but not quite touching herself.

BIO:

An incurable romantic with a naughty side, Jenna loves to discover where her characters take her as she tells their stories. Jenna lives in NY with Mr. Happily Ever After and her five children, two dogs and cat.

She loves to hear from fans! Feel free to contact her via social media or email.

Spotlight: The Wager (Touch of the Gods) by D. X. Luc

The Wager (Touch of the Gods) by D. X. Luc

Released: May 4, 2012 ~ 228 pages

Blurb:

When love and war makes a little wager, what could possibly go wrong?

I am Hephaestus. God of inventions, blacksmiths, and volcanoes. Sounds like I’m awesome right? Well, I’m not. In fact, I’m the loser of Olympus and a new bachelor to boot. Living the single life is great until a decade passed. Honestly if my divorce from the Goddess of Love wasn’t bad enough, I am still being rejected by the other women of my home.

Because of an incessant need to make me a pawn in his game, my brother, Ares convinces Eros to make a little bet. A wager that puts my lack of love life to the test. Sent to Earth, I’m skeptical, when suddenly I lose myself in the sensual scent and beauty of the full bodied Vanessa. She is my everything, my perfection.

Sadly, from a single caress upon her silky flesh, I sent our lives into a downward spiral of hell. To save her, I must get beyond my demons of the past. And to save me, she will have to decide if I’m worth giving up everything for.

Bio:

An avid reader since I was a child, I never found a book I disliked. Mostly, you could find me lost in Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, or Ernest Hemingway, and my most favorite, Ancient Greek literature. Taking my love of books, I started writing poetry, short stories, and even helped with screen writes for my drama club.

By the time I was in my teens, my older sister introduced me to my first romance novel, The Hawk and the Dove by Virginia Henley. The moment I fell into the world of love, I was hooked, and my addiction for more grew until I found myself delving deeper into the erotic.

After being convinced that I had the skills to try my hand at writing, I went to work on my first story Down the Yellow Brick Road: Finding Home. And since being published, I’ve not looked back.

Now, as a busy mom of three, that homeschools, drives to activities, and manages to find time to just cuddle with my husband of ten years, I have to say, I love being naughty when I get the chance. It’s freeing and I wouldn’t want it any other way!
