4 Years of Reviews. 4 Years of Supporting Authors. 4 Years of Great Books. 4 Huge Bags o’ Swag.

banner blogiversary 4 yrsCongratulations to Guilty Indulgence on four fabulous years. 😀

I love to indulge, especially when it comes to my addiction to hot romances. My heroines are hard working ladies. I may not make their path to love easy, but I make sure the reward is worth it.

In my latest release, Taking Courage, Janna and Simon are having a hard time getting past their bumpy start. She fears he’ll never really want her and he’s not ready to see her go. In this snippet you’ll see if this is where it will end or if it’s just the hot indulgent beginning.

EXCERPT:

She pulled herself from his hold a little too easily. It only took a couple steps to get out of his reach.

“I’m sorry this didn’t work out. I’ll contact Charlie. Maybe she can set up a meet for Friday and I’ll be off your hands.”

“Now, wait a minute.”

“I’m sorry for the trouble I’ve caused you. I get it now.” She stepped closer to the door and her escape route. “I shouldn’t have put you in this position.”

“Would you just hold on for a minute? Stop running from me.”

She stopped moving.

“Get back over here. I didn’t release you.”

She pivoted on the balls of her feet, and he pointed to the space in front of him. She squeezed in between Simon and the desk. He leaned forward and forced her back. She rested her elbows on the desk and knocked her head into his laptop. He pushed it away.

Silently he opened her blouse. Her bra had a front closure, and he released it as well. She flicked off her shoes and pulled up her feet to rest them on the edge of the desk. He grabbed hold of her pussy and returned her to the moment and his control.

Long seconds ticked by as he watched her. Was he making a decision about her, or had he done it already? She bit her lip. Vulnerability rolled in waves over her. Simon had exposed her in a whole new way. Why was she letting him do this to her?

“Maybe I’m giving you a hard time because I’ve been hurt before by lies.” He looked like a judge deciding her fate.

“I’m sorry, Sir.”

“Thank you.” He flexed his fingers, reminding her of her position. “Here’s where I stand. I do believe your actions weren’t meant to be manipulative, and I’ll stop bringing it up.” His eyes raked over her, and flames licked through her body. “But don’t think I’ll let you get away with lies by omission again.”

“I know,” she spat out.

He squeezed the folds around her pussy.

“Thank you, Sir.”

“Now, as for me wanting you.” He pulled her hips to the edge of his desk. “Give me your hand.”

She reached for him, and he pulled her to sitting. With a kiss to her palm, he pressed her hand around the hard ridge of his cock.

“I’ve been hard for you all day. I know the soft, warm grip of your pussy, and it’s all I could think about today, especially after feeling your ass and watching your squirm through the meeting.” He stroked her hand up and down on his hard length. “You’re breathtaking, Janna. Having control over your body is quickly becoming my obsession. I can’t get you out of my head. I couldn’t wait to touch your pussy again, to taste you, watch you pulsate as your orgasm rises and you come all over my tongue.”

“Yes, please, Sir.”

“I’ll help you to learn the path as my submissive, and we’ll take the rest one day at a time.” He bent over her and took her left nipple into his mouth and pushed the heel of her hand down the edge of his cock.

“Oh, Sir.”

“I must warn you.” He tugged on her nipple with his teeth and let it go. “Do you remember your safe word?”

taking-courage400x267BLURB:

Janna’s ready to make over her life and get out from under the controlling thumb of her father. She doesn’t want another failed arranged marriage. She’s ready to do whatever it takes for the career she wants, enter the lifestyle she craves, and to earn the trust and love of the man that has captured her heart, but heartbreak and career hiccups seem to be her destiny.

Simon’s still recovering after his last submissive lied her way into his life. He’s not ready for Janna and how she pushes against his prejudices. He needs to decide if he’s willing to lose her or if he’ll fight for her love and submission.

Meet My Character Blog Tour – Simon Young

Big thank you to my friend and fabulous writer, Anne Lange for inviting me on this tour. Her books are not to be missed and I’m looking forward to her next release, Sliding into Home.

taking-courage300x200I’d like to introduce you to Simon Young, the hero for my recent release, TAKING COURAGE. I first met Simon while writing the first book in my Love Projects series, Taking Chances.

When he was a little boy he found a second home at his local gym. Through the discipline of his training, he found comfort and control. When he later found the life style of BDSM, it felt like a homecoming. He took to it with the same discipline he developed in the gym, devoting himself to his training and eventually the training of others.

Many of us come from loving homes with parents that encourage us and help us to become the best we can be. Simon didn’t have any of that. He is who he is because he wanted it. He fought for it, literally. So, when he crosses paths with someone who hasn’t learned some of the basics in life, he has no mercy. No excuses allowed, you’re responsible for your own actions.

Simon maybe a cut and dry character in some ways, but with a big heart just asking to be stolen. He wants love in his life. He wants to find the one person who can understand who he is and love him whole. The last submissive he fell for actually was in love with someone else and was using Simon. The ordeal cut him deeply.

When I set out to write his story, I was tempted to hand him love on a silver platter. I wanted him to find something easy. I knew he’d love my heroine completely, but I couldn’t go easy. Not because I wanted to make it hard on him, but because I wanted him to see someone fight for him. I wanted him to know he was wanted even when a future seemed impossible.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit about Simon. You’ll see him again in the next two Love Projects books. You’ll get to see the love of his life again too and see their love deepen and grow.

Weekend Writing Warriors – The First Rule

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna found the courage to ask Simon to be her trainer. THIS WEEK: Simon has said, yes. Yes! 😀 I’ve skipped over a couple sweet nuggets to give you his first rule. Enjoy.

“First, no more panties.”

“At the club?”

“Anywhere. Since you don’t want to wait, while you are my trainee, I want you as aware of your body as possible. Your panties are an unnecessary barrier.” Holding the attention of a willing submissive was like a drug to Simon. Her gaze told of her concentration, but it was her sweet musk filling the air that would do him in. “Take care of your things here, then remove those panties, and get your ass to my office. You have five minutes.”

What’s going to happen in five minutes?! 🙂 I know the answer and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST Snippet: Simon got his first glimpse of Janna the Project Manager. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a bit. The meeting’s over and Simon has given Janna some well deserved praise. Their conversation has shifted back to how they met. Janna still needs a trainer …

“If you want me to train you, you are going to have to ask.” He waited for a bit. When she didn’t speak, he walked to the door. Smart girl. She’d probably thought better of asking him. She was better off with someone Charlie could find for her. He shoved off the ache the thought gave him.

“Would you train me, Sir?”

Way to go, Janna! She asked for what she wanted. I’m so proud. 😀 Now, do you think Simon will have the courage to accept? I know the answer and so can you! Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Weekend Writing Warriors – She’s In Control

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna got the spanking she deserved. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a bit. We’re now in Simon’s POV. Janna’s called her first meeting and she’s hoping to earn back some of the respect she’s lost. Let’s see what Simon thinks as he enters the room.*I changed some punctuation to fit a tad more into this snippet.*

Janna had control of the room. Interesting. It would take a lot more to impress him though. He was betting if she could pretend her way into a club, she could also pretend her way into getting a job. Keller could usually tell the players from the real deal, but that only meant Simon would need to keep his eyes on her and yell fool at the first sign of trouble.

The last seat open was on the exact opposite end of the table from Janna. She watched him like a hawk; clearly she didn’t need another minute to prepare. A foreign sensation washed over him; he no longer held the reins of his team.

Do you think Simon’s going to like seeing Janna control his team? I know the answer and so can you! Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna suggested Simon punish her for her accidental lie during their first meet. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over their conversation, Janna’s little strip, AND her first several spankings.

His fingers continued to move over her folds. Her muscles strained to remain still. The next several slaps were harder to take than the first set, but soon his fingers were back over her folds. Her orgasm raced to the surface.

“That’s enough.” His hand disappeared from her sex. “Up you go, get dressed now.”

“But—”

I’m really glad Janna didn’t finish that thought. Yikes. So, do you think it will be smooth sailing for these two from here on out? 🙂  I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna went to Simon’s office to ask for a fresh start and in the process distanced herself further. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over an interesting conversation and brought us to the spot when Janna has a suggestion.

“How can we get past this?” They were in the office, but their troubles had started in the club. How would they handle this sort of thing there? “You could punish me.”

“You’re asking for a spanking?” His cock clearly liked the idea. Her line of sight pulled to the obvious bulge in his pants.

“If that’s what you think I deserve, Sir.”

Oh boy, she’s going to get it now. I’m actually nervous for her and I know how it all works out and so can you.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna asked Simon for a fresh start. When he didn’t respond, Janna turned to leave his office. Simon stopped her by stepping in behind her and pressing the door closed. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped nothing. 🙂

Her hips swirled over him, and he pressed her against the door. A moan escaped her, and then he was gone. She remained plastered against the door, afraid to move, not wanting to admit the moment was over. She peered over her shoulder and found him pacing the back corner of his office.

He couldn’t have gotten any further away.

“Do I need to apologize again?” She slowly turned around to face him and pressed her body into the door. A part of her wished the door would swallow her whole.

They’re on the edge of moving forward. Can you feel it? I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today.

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE.

LAST WEEK: Janna remembered what she forgot to tell Simon. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped over a good bit because they’re parts I don’t want to give away. Today, I’m sharing the bit after Janna’s and Simon’s path cross again. He’s stopped her from leaving his office by pushing the door closed. The first line is Simon’s while they’re both still close and facing the door.

“You want to start over?”

“Yes, please.” The heat from his body soaked into her back. She wanted to press her hips into him. What would it feel like to be taken, right here?

“No more lies.”

“None, Sir.”

Her hips arched back to rub, seeking his hardness. She needed more.

Do you really think it will be that easy? 😉 I know how it all works out and so can you. Pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today. Also, TAKING CHANCES, the first in the Love Projects series is currently on sale at Evernight Publishing for only 99 cents. If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, this is a great time to pick it up.

Weekend Writing Warriors – Remembering Her Simon

Click the logo for the Weekend Writing Warriors blog

Click the logo for the Weekend Writing Warriors blog

Welcome friends old and new. I’m glad you came. Today, I’m sharing from the second in my Love Projects series, TAKING COURAGE which released on Thursday! You can find all the details here, including my giveaway.

LAST WEEK: Janna’s nerves were on full display because she thought she’d forgotten to tell Simon something. Turns out, it was a pretty important something, especially in the BDSM scene. THIS WEEK: I’ve skipped a couple great parts including a hot part. Oops. Sorry. At this point, Janna has remembered what she forgot to tell him.

“Look at me, pet.”

He knew. She was a cheat, and he knew. Her push of courage had gotten her through the door, but it couldn’t keep her here, not any longer. It was time to face the consequences. She told herself to remember the Simon from the scene, her first ever scene. He would always be her first Dom. She would try not to remember the Dom that was about to dismiss her.

I so wish I could give Janna a hug at his point in the story. Next week, we’ll enter Simon’s POV, but you don’t have to wait. You can pick up your own copy of TAKING COURAGE and find out everything today. 🙂 Also, TAKING CHANCES, the first in the Love Projects series is currently on sale at Evernight Publishing for only 99 cents.
