Shifters, Dragons & Witches, Oh My #WritingProcess Blog Tour #amwriting

Hey, I was tagged by my friend, A. S. Fenichel to participate in this Writing Process Blog Hop. Each author answers questions about their work in progress and how they write. I thought this would be a great idea as I get a lot of questions about what I’m working on. I tagged Harlie Williams and Helena Harker. Check out their blogs for their posts on April 7, 2014. Without further ado, on to the questions.

What am I working on?

Right now I’m slowly working on four projects. I‘m writing a paranormal erotic romance featuring a shifter detective protecting a curvy witch even though, in their town, supernaturals don’t mix with each other. Ever.

I have another futuristic erotic romance in the works featuring a powerful dragon shifter. This one has been reworked three times with the same two main characters. I know they want to be together forever. I hope I got it right this time.

My goal every year is to enter a short story contest. I never make it as my work always starts to run long. This year I’m determined and the story is a third of the way finished and all planned.

Finally, for you fans of Enslaved in Desire and Battling Rapture, Guntar just told me he’s ready for his story. This one might take a while. I’ve met his lady love and she is extremely complicated. The story won’t unfold into an erotic romance so I’m still in the concept stage.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I literally have no idea. Right now, I’m writing sci-fi erotic romance, paranormal erotic romance and urban fantasy (under another name).  My characters are usually interracial (or interspecies *wink *wink). My leading ladies are for the most part, African-American. I hope that what I write is unique to me.

Why do I write what I do?

I read everything as a child and teen. At a certain age, I noticed my tastes running toward fantasy, and science fiction. I read and watched a ton of science fiction. In my late teens I discovered romance novels and a love affair was born. It just made sense to combine them all.

How does my writing process work?

I started out as someone who marinated over an idea, made a few notes, then began to write. This was joyful and creative, but I felt I could spend less time on revisions if I knew everything up front. Edits and revisions are my arch enemies and I hate them beyond reason. My teenager can tell you how I monologue against them before she’d tell me, “You can do it, Mom.”

So I researched how to become a plotter. Why did I do that? I had my shifter story blocked out to within an inch of its life. And I couldn’t write it. My mind felt, well, done with it. It was now boring because I knew everything. I suffered a gripping case of writer’s block for months.

Then I began to write by a small word count, forcing myself to push out a certain number of words each day. I even began to write an urban fantasy for my alter ego. I flipped back and forth between three stories. It got easier when I automatically changed a plot point in the shifter story. Suddenly I wasn’t tied to my outlines and timelines. I could use it as a guide. I learned a major lesson with that one.

I do keep information from intersecting stories in a notebook so that I can flip back to them when I am unsure of something. When I create a new animal I may sketch it out.

And that is my crazy process.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to comment or ask questions in the comments section. Here is a little more about the fabulous authors I’ve tagged. Check out their posts to find out what they are working on and how they write.

Harlie Williams is a reader of everything and a writer of romance. The story must have a HEA or she will put it down. A HFN can apply but it must make sense. She grew up in Dallas, TX and now lives in East Texas with her hero and their son.

Helena Harker is a teacher by day, writer by night, a daydreamer who loves to escape to other worlds. Her fiction is populated by strong men, passionate women and lots of paranormal creatures. In her free time she enjoys photography and curling up with a good book.

 

Rapturously Sexy #MySexySaturday #romance #MSSWeek41

I am delighted to participate in the My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop this week. Week 41 is all about that moment when the characters hint at their happily ever after.

The rules are that I post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences, or 7 words. This Saturday, I decided on 7 sentences from my second book with Ellora’s Cave Publishing, Battling Rapture. In these seven, Niki realizes it might be a delicious thing to be vulnerable with the, oh so sexy Captain Rhine.

batlingrapture_msr

** The anticipation sent delicate little shivers down her spine. Then his lips touched hers. Softly at first, they glided across her lips before parting to deepen the delicious contact. His tongue danced with hers and she tried to immerse herself in the exquisite feeling. Whatever this was she felt when with him was addictive. She wanted to absorb what he made her feel into her pores. With a simple kiss he could turn her to mush and convince her she didn’t care if she were vulnerable. **

You can only imagine what comes next. Have you ever given yourself over to a feeling so strong you faced your biggest phobia to have it?

I hoped you enjoyed my 7. There are many more authors waiting to show you peeks into their WIP’s and books. Click the highlighted link that follows to head to the hop.

Cosmic Bliss Release Day

cosmicbliss_msr

By Stormie Kent

The big day is finally here! I’m happy to have you celebrate the release of my third ebook with me. Cosmic Bliss is a short novel written in the fictional setting of the United Universe. I have an excerpt below.

The buy link for Ellora’s Cave will have it first. The others will show up at each distributor’s discretion.

BLURB

Earth freedom fighter Shunyuan, vows to rid Earth of its alien oppressors even as he is abducted into space to be a slave. He’s rescued by a band of female pirates, and agrees to sexually pleasure their lovely captain in return for help returning to Earth. He never expected to end up the beautiful alien’s mate—or to find bliss in her arms.

Captain Acia must use a man’s body for sex during the seven days of her fervor or suffer debilitating pain.  She makes a deal with Shunyuan, never imagining he’s her mate. She finds herself bound to a captive who wants to return to his world—without her.

Their sensual bond and sizzling passion tie them together even as Shunyuan’s duty to Earth’s rebellion threatens to tear them apart.

EXCERPT

The following excerpt is for those readers who are 18 and over only.

This warrior-man fascinated Acia. She felt the fervor, which had subsided some during the battle, flare to life. Heat and tension settled between her legs and her nipples pulled taut. Wetness soaked her panties.

“Keep the tall one, Acia. You will need him,” Cheris said.

“We don’t traffic in humanoids, Cheris.” She blew out slowly, trying to dispel the urge to go to him and rub her body against his.

“Ask him.” Cheris nodded.

The male spoke in a language she could not understand. She needed to calibrate her Language Interpreter. The LI would need to adjust to this new language.

“You want me to ask a perfect stranger, an alien slave, to keep me sexually satisfied while I go through my first fervor? He could be a murderer.”

“What other choice do you have? Go all the way to Dovia? You can’t stop staring. You want him. The fervor wants him. Tell him we will transport them to a friendly planet if he does this for you.”

The fervor flared higher, streaking through her entire body. Tendrils of heat branched out from her core. She’d waited too long to find a man to help her through her time.

Acia took a deep breath to steady herself. “Unchain them, but guard your weapons.”

Acia instructed her crew to adjust their LIs. Acia adjusted her LI as well. There was mumbling among the alien men and women as they were released. Finally she could make out words from their foreign tongue.

“You, warrior, I would speak with you.” She cursed her voice, which she knew sounded as sweet as flowers in a light breeze.

“You’ve freed us.” He stepped closer. “Or is this a trick?”

“There is no trick. But maybe I haven’t done you any favors. You are free to take this vessel and leave,” Acia replied. A new sheen of perspiration released from her pores as she tried to contain the fervor. The presence of a humanoid male made it almost impossible. “My crew and I will be appropriating the cargo.”

He grimaced. “We wouldn’t know how to fly this ship. We would be easily targeted sitting here. Can you take us to a safe place or back to Earth?”

Acia held herself rigid even though her body was demanding she display for this man signs she was ready to mate. If she bent over to let him mount her she would expire on the spot. “You aren’t even in the same galaxy as your Earth anymore, warrior. Passage on our vessel is limited and—”

“There is a way you could pay the way for your people. Of course they would still have to work to earn their keep,” Cheris said.

“No, Cheris.” It was difficult to talk through clenched teeth.

“How would I do that?” he asked. He frowned at Acia’s first officer.

Acia raised her hand to halt Cheris’s next words. “It is not something I would ask of—”

“As the first officer to your captain, you hold rank, but as the woman who raised you, I demand my right to speak.”

Acia clamped her lips together. The other woman had raised her and protected her during their enslavement. Cheris was the person who deserved parenting rights over Acia. She deserved the privilege of counseling her.

Cheris turned to the man. “What is your name, warrior?”

He blinked. Acia could imagine it had been awhile since anyone had asked him his name.

“I am Shunyuan Taylor.”

“Well, Shunyuan Taylor. We are Dovian. Our females go through a stage when they become women called the fervor. Captain Acia is entering her first fervor and needs a man to rut with her for the next seven risings,” Cheris said. Her voice was calm.

Shunyuan Taylor looked from Cheris to her. His gaze started at the top of Acia’s lcin-red hair and passed over the pearlescent whiteness of her skin. She knew he was taking in their differences. The Dovians had pale-white skin that shimmered underneath with a faint silver-and-gold sparkle tones. She glanced at the women huddled with her crew. She realized how different she must look to him from the cream, peach and brown of the Earth women with him.

She was much shorter than Shunyuan Taylor. Her figure was willowy. The females with him were more rounded than she would ever hope to be.

“You are not a woman full grown?” he asked.

Acia’s jaw tightened. “I am an adult Dovian with twenty-four summers. I only become a full woman after my first fervor.”

“If I…have sex with you will be taken to a safe place where we can make our way back to our planet?” he asked.

How could he speak with his jaw clenched so tightly? His mouth turned down at the corners. His entire body was rigid as if she were offering him the highest offense. Maybe she was. Her eyes skittered away from his. Pride wouldn’t allow her to answer him.

“Yes. You will be exhausted when she is done with you. I will even give you some credits for necessities,” Cheris said.

“Cheris!”

“Parent rights, Acia, parent rights.” The other woman still watched Shunyuan Taylor.

He stared at Acia for a long time. His eyes were intense and not in a pleasant way. “I will do as you ask.”

“Then we have a deal, Earth man. Do understand, if you hurt her, I will kill you slowly.”

Acia bowed her head.

“I understand,” he said.

“Is one of these Earth women your female, Shunyuan Taylor?” Acia asked.

“No.” He paused for a moment. The line of his mouth eased slightly. “You must call me Shunyuan.”

“Shunyuan,” Acia repeated.

“It’s settled. I will take care of our cargo and manage our new guests. Acia, take Shunyuan Taylor to your quarters. You are showing signs of full fervor and should be very uncomfortable by now. Get food and drink for him. There is no need for dehydration.” Cheris turned away to direct the bots as they came into the cargo area to secure boxes.

Acia sighed as she stared at the back of the older woman’s black hair. Acia felt her body loosen and break free from the restraints she placed on it. Her thighs had a mind of their own and slid against each other as she tightened the muscles in her woman’s core. More moisture pooled there as she turned to look at her first sexual partner.

“This way.” She noticed huskiness in her voice that hadn’t been there before. Her walk held more side-to-side sway than normal.

She didn’t know what to expect from him. Would he be as gentle as a Dovian man would? The hard lines of his face and body did not suggest he would be. All she knew was she had to have him. He would be the only being standing between her and mental and physical torture.

BLURB

Camryn is taken captive after Earth is invaded by hostile aliens. She is sold as an exotic, an expensive sex slave. Camryn is willing to do anything to survive and escape captivity. That includes convincing her master that she enjoys his touch. Then she is purchased by the sexy warrior Venn. Now she must convince herself that she can resist a male whose every caress ignites a passion she has never known.

Venn is an empathic and hyper-sensitive tribal lord from planet Ordan. He has never owned a slave, yet he cannot resist the beautiful Earth woman. She teases his heightened senses and pushes past the control he has over his emotions. Venn struggles to own Camryn’s body with scorching sex and a firm hand. And when his possession of her body is complete, he’ll try to claim her soul.

He crowded her back and she watched in the mirror. He was dressed for meetings in a black dress coat, crisp white shirt and fitted black pants. The contrast of her nude body pressed against his fully clothed form made her press back against him to feel the pleasure of the smooth material against her hot skin.

“I didn’t tell you to move, sweet.” He stepped back.

She groaned. Her eyes clashed with his in the mirror.

“What’s with the restraint?” she asked.

“I know you like it when I hold you down, but I wanted to use my hands today. And you did say it would take chains to keep you in one place,” he replied.

She remained as still as possible and he watched her for a while before moving behind her once more. She wanted to think she would resist him, but she couldn’t. When he got like this, he wasn’t going to be put off and she liked how he handled her too much. She liked that he took all the passion and barbarian in himself and locked it down, only for it to emerge again once he’d made her mindless. She knew it was there, just sitting under the surface of his skin. She could see it in the way his smile didn’t match the fire in his eyes.

He gathered her hair in one hand and wrapped it once around his hand. He pulled her head gently to the side. She curled her toes into the carpet so she wouldn’t move.

His other hand came up, but only one finger trailed her throat from her hairline to her shoulder. His mouth followed and his cool hair swung forward and trailed over her arm and breast. He did the same thing over and over again to the back of her neck and then transferred her hair to his other hand and worked the same magic on the other side of her neck. He tugged harder on her hair and the pleasure shot straight to her cunt.

He stepped beside her and leaned forward, raining kisses on her chin and neck. Then he turned her loose completely. She whimpered.

“Keep your eyes on your face and body in the mirror,” he said, lacing his voice with command.

She stared into his eyes in the mirror. Then she lowered her gaze to her own face. Her eyes were slumberous. Her bottom lip was swollen where she’d bitten it in concentration and she was flushed.

“Beautiful,” he said.

BLURB

Niki is captured by hostile aliens after Earth is invaded. Once a soldier, she is now a slave. She is sold to the highest bidder, and then lost in a game of cards to a tall Ordanian spaceship captain, who claims to have been sent to rescue her. They work together to survive the dangers of the United Universe, while Niki battles her desire for the only man to ever enflame her mind, body and soul.

Captain Rhine’s mission is to reunite the Earth woman with her family. Outmaneuvering beast shifters and a crazed stalker are the very least he is willing to do to keep her by his side. Her touch ignites his passion. Her scent drives his lust. Her strength eases his soul even as she challenges him every step of the way. In the end, Rhine understands, the biggest battle is for her heart.

He leaned over her. His stomach muscles bunched and rolled above her. She opened her mouth, barely stopping her tongue from peeking out and tasting him. She looked up instead. He wrapped the rope around her wrists, apparently finding it easy to manipulate the thick cord. He fastened the other end around the top horizontal solid bar of the headboard.

He ran his hands softly over her inner arms. She shivered. She tensed as he grabbed her face a little more roughly. She looked into his eyes. Anticipation wound tightly within her. What would he do next?

“You have two dresses in my bag, correct?” he asked close to her mouth.

She hesitated. He squeezed her face a little tighter.

“Yes.” She stared him in the eye.

“Good.” He let her go. He moved down so that he sat between her legs, which had opened despite her desire not to appear too eager. His cock rested against the juncture of her legs. She could feel its mass through the layers of her skirt and leggings.

He sat back, grabbed her bodice and ripped it straight down the middle. She gasped. Shock held her still for a moment. Then her pussy gushed. This was just wrong. The man had tied her to a bed and literally ripped her top off and she was creaming her panties. Her head fell back and she tugged on the ties around her wrists. She was secured tightly.

Her attention snapped back to Rhine as she felt two large hands cup her breasts. They teased, squeezed and rolled her tits and she enjoyed every minute of it.

“Found some new toys.” She panted and suppressed a groan.

“Mine,” he said. He stared at her breasts hungrily. He slid down her body.

“I don’t know about—” She gasped as he sucked her right nipple into his mouth. Her eyes rolled up into her head for a moment.

“Okay, you can borrow them for a while.” If he kept up the delicious suction, she’d be begging him to try it a little lower in no time.

Musings with Morticia Knight on Boundaries #MM #eroticromance

Please welcome the fabulous Morticia Knight! She is here to talk about her new MM release Set Ablaze and muse about pushing boundaries.

Where are Your Boundaries?

I could probably write a couple dozen posts on that subject matter – there are so many areas that could be covered! But this subject comes up in my new MM release, “Set Ablaze”, that is about two hunky firemen falling in love. Nothing wrong with that, right? Except for one little thing: one is the fire chief, and the other works for him. Uh-oh. The ol’ inappropriate relationships at work dilemma.

Well, I have a confession to make: that’s how I met my partner seven years ago. There was also a cougar thing going on there, but that’s not the point today. The point is that I was his boss. Yeah. I crossed boundaries. Now before everyone goes all judgmental on my ass, I did legitimately try and fight it. I told my closest friends that it was terribly wrong, and that I couldn’t allow it to happen. They all called me an idiot and told me to go for it. I guess we know where their boundaries are.

He didn’t help. He kept after me, and even though we didn’t ever swipe papers off the desk and have at it there in the office, we confessed our feelings for one another. And then we snuck around for a while, and then my boss found out when someone from work called me at a restaurant to tell me he had a health scare and I freaked out. In front of the Board of Directors that I reported to directly for work. Good one.

Fast forward a little where I made a startling frank confession to my boss, she told me that everyone had already figured it out – “duh” – and that as long as he could exit gracefully, there would be no repercussions. Yikes. Hormones are a bitch. This is why showing up for work on time every day is important people – you can always fall back on that (“But I’m very punctual”).

But here’s the deal; it wasn’t just hormones. That I could’ve dealt with. This was the real thing, and it went beyond attraction. We fell in love, and I guess for me, that’s where my boundaries are. What about you, have you ever had what some would consider an inappropriate relationship? In the following excerpt from “Set Ablaze”, the young recruit Tom inadvertently walks in on his boss – who he is falling for, but believes is straight – at a very awkward moment.

Set Ablaze, Book One in the Uniform Encounters series.

Publisher: Total E Bound

Genre: MM erotic romance, Men in Uniform

Length: 143 pages

Format: ebook

Blurb: Hunky fire chief Eric is out of the closet after twenty years of marriage. Can he find true love, or will a spate of arson fires destroy his chances with Tom, the sexy young fire-fighter?

Excerpt:

It was ten p.m. when he arrived at the station, and his pulse quickened a little when he saw the light still on in the chief’s office as he pulled in the driveway. If he kept driving past the garage where the engines were kept and parked by the sleeping quarters, the office would be completely obscured from any of the guys on shift—even if they went outside for a smoke. Tom noticed a tan Ford Bronco parked at the end where the office was. That must be the chief’s ride. Exactly what he would have pictured him in.

Tom was about to continue pulling all the way in, when he thought of something. Maybe he could just drop in and thank Eric again for the opportunity. Who knew when else he might be able to see him without anyone else around?

Stupid. It’s late at night, I’m sure he doesn’t want to be bothered.

Tom sat there letting the car idle while he wrestled with his gut instinct—the one that was telling him it was a bad idea. Then a wonderful realisation hit him—he’d promised the chief he would drop off a copy of his most recent physical as he was stuttering and bumbling out of his office earlier. Tom put the car in park, and jumped out. He opened the back lift gate, and rummaged around for the paper he’d brought with him.

Yeah, it was still a little weird, but he could at least say that he’d seen the light on, and thought it would be easiest for him to drop it off on his way in to his shift. His heart thumping in his chest, Tom grabbed the document, parked his car properly, and started to walk towards the office door, surprised to note that his legs actually felt a little shaky.

I must be more tired than I realised, that’s all.

He reached the door to the building, and it was unlocked, so he went ahead and pulled it open. The waiting area and Keri’s office were completely dark, but there was a sliver of light coming from the partially opened door to the chief’s office. He heard a groan.

Oh shit, is he okay?

Tom ran forward and was about to burst into the office when he heard another voice, a younger male one.

“Oh yeah, you like that, don’t you, Mr Anderson? You like it when I squeeze your cock and play with the tip like that, don’t you? You see—you need me. I’m going to show you how much more you need me when I lick your balls and then suck the juice right out of your fucking huge cock. Here I come, baby…”

Tom heard an even louder groan, and Chief Anderson’s voice, “Oh God, Brad, I can’t believe how good that feels. But I…”

“You want me to stop? Is that it? Okay, if you don’t need my tongue doing this to you…”

Tom heard a whimper.

“Or this…”

What is he doing? What is he doing?

Tom was bombarded with a flurry of emotions—surprise, lust, jealousy, curiosity. He didn’t know what to do. God, the chief wasn’t straight after all. But if Tom got caught… He was so curious, but he didn’t dare creep any farther. He should just leave that very second.

The chief moaned some more, and Tom could tell the man was nearing climax. Christ, if he didn’t get out of there soon, he would be too. He’d need to get his boner to go down before he could even head over to start work. What a night! Tom turned around to leave, and bumped his leg against the magazine table. Without thinking, he cried out.

“Who’s there?”

Sensation Play with Malia Mallory #erotica #eroticromance

Malia Mallory is here today to talk about her erotica and erotic romances and sensation play. I can’t wait. Take it away Malia!

Hi all! Thank you Stormie for inviting me to appear today. I’m here to talk a bit about His Need, Her Desire and its sequel.

With my newest release, His Need, Her Desire, I branched out a bit from erotica more into the erotic romance realm. I’m currently hard at work on the sequel, His Desire, Her Surrender. These are both what I would term erotic romance with light BDSM elements. In the first book, one of the more memorable scenes depicts sensation play.

Sensation play can involve the deprivation of sensation such as wearing a blindfold. It can also involve the stimulation of the senses by using feathers or tickling. In His Need, Her Desire, the sensation play is primarily temperature play, the application of hot and cold, though a blindfold is involved too!

Marcus, our hero, utilizes wax and ice to create a series of sensual sensations for his partner, Tabitha. Wax play, like all such activities, needs to be safe, sane and consensual. Different waxes melt at different temperatures, so care must be taken not to burn the recipient. The application of the wax can produce in an artistic result on the skin, particularly if multiple colors are used.

Ice play is often utilized with wax for contrast. Ice can also be uniquely shaped for use. The melting slipperiness can lead to some interesting situations! Ice is often one of the easy entry points into sensation play.

Thank you for stopping by! Please take a peek at the blurb and excerpt for His Need, Her Desire below.

His Need, Her Desire Blurb

Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.

His Need, Her Desire Excerpt

Tabitha’s smile grew wide. She held out her hand. “Really, I can’t thank you enough for your help.”

He held her hand in a firm grasp a shade longer than necessary, but Tabitha didn’t mind. She enjoyed looking at him. Though he had probably shaved that morning, an attractive shadow highlighted his chin and strong jawline.

“I’m glad I was in the right place.”

Tabitha released his hand. “So, where’s your sister?”

“My sister? How did you know?”

Tabitha bit her lip. “I’m sorry to say that I eavesdropped a bit. I was sitting near you at dinner last evening.”

“Eavesdropping? That seems extremely naughty.”

Tabitha was caught off guard by the tone of his voice. He was teasing, and yet, there was a thread of authority running through his words. Tabitha tried to suppress a shiver. “Well, sometimes I just can’t help myself.” Marcus appeared disarmed by her honesty. “Are you traveling with anyone?”

Tabitha gave him a playful look. “Why do you ask?”

Marcus smiled. “Because I’m interested in knowing the answer, of course.”

“Well, if you’re thinking about ditching my body at sea, I’ve got six family members waiting for me in my hotel room upstairs. If you’re thinking about asking me to dinner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.” Tabitha amazed herself. Where is this coming from? This man brought something out in her. She’d bet those broad shoulders and sexy smile had enticed many a woman.

He laughed. “You have nothing to worry about. I never use force, unless of course, it is desired.”

“Oh?” The truth burst into her mind. It suddenly became clear that he was fishing around a bit. There had been several hints here and there, but it seemed like he might be looking for a certain sort of woman. No, he couldn’t be. I’m imagining things.

“It’s true. I would be pleased if you joined me for dinner this evening.”

Tabitha did a mental fist pump in her mind. Woohoo! Dinner with Gorgeous Guy. “What did you have in mind?”

“Would you be averse to allowing me to surprise you?”

Tabitha hesitated then plunged ahead. “Not at all. It’s clear you have excellent taste.”

Marcus raised an eyebrow. “What makes you say that?”

“Well, we both dined at the same restaurant last night, and I thought it was terrific.”

“Ah, well, my meal was less than pleasant unfortunately.” His tone indicated the subject was off-limits.

“Perhaps it was the company and not the food?”

Marcus laughed. “You are undoubtedly right and surprisingly honest.”

“My mother would say that my tongue is quicker than my brain.”

The corners of Marcus’s mouth lifted. “I’ve always been a fan of quick tongues.”

It is finally here! Okay the shouting is over. I really love this book and I’m so happy to bring it to you.

Niki and Rhine. You may have met them in, Enslaved in Desire. I didn’t think anyone would guess my intentions, but almost every review of the book which took a guess as to who would be the hero and heroine of the next, picked them to be together. The characters never even met in the first book, but…they were so explosive together as I labored over their story.

So, if you like aliens, IR, kick ass heroines, handsome space captains and lots of intense sex then Battling Rapture is for you. Check out this blurb and excerpt. Don’t forget to read all the way to the bottom for my contest details.

BLURB

Niki is captured by hostile aliens after Earth is invaded. Once a soldier, she is now a slave. She is sold to the highest bidder, and then lost in a game of cards to a tall Ordanian spaceship captain, who claims to have been sent to rescue her. They work together to survive the dangers of the United Universe, while Niki battles her desire for the only man to ever enflame her mind, body and soul.

Captain Rhine’s mission is to reunite the Earth woman with her family. Outmaneuvering beast shifters and a crazed stalker are the very least he is willing to do to keep her by his side. Her touch ignites his passion. Her scent drives his lust. Her strength eases his soul even as she challenges him every step of the way. In the end, Rhine understands, the biggest battle is for her heart.

He leaned over her. His stomach muscles bunched and rolled above her. She opened her mouth, barely stopping her tongue from peeking out and tasting him. She looked up instead. He wrapped the rope around her wrists, apparently finding it easy to manipulate the thick cord. He fastened the other end around the top horizontal solid bar of the headboard.

He ran his hands softly over her inner arms. She shivered. She tensed as he grabbed her face a little more roughly. She looked into his eyes. Anticipation wound tightly within her. What would he do next?

“You have two dresses in my bag, correct?” he asked close to her mouth.

She hesitated. He squeezed her face a little tighter.

“Yes.” She stared him in the eye.

“Good.” He let her go. He moved down so that he sat between her legs, which had opened despite her desire not to appear too eager. His cock rested against the juncture of her legs. She could feel its mass through the layers of her skirt and leggings.

He sat back, grabbed her bodice and ripped it straight down the middle. She gasped. Shock held her still for a moment. Then her pussy gushed. This was just wrong. The man had tied her to a bed and literally ripped her top off and she was creaming her panties. Her head fell back and she tugged on the ties around her wrists. She was secured tightly.

Her attention snapped back to Rhine as she felt two large hands cup her breasts. They teased, squeezed and rolled her tits and she enjoyed every minute of it.

“Found some new toys.” She panted and suppressed a groan.

“Mine,” he said. He stared at her breasts hungrily. He slid down her body.

“I don’t know about—” She gasped as he sucked her right nipple into his mouth. Her eyes rolled up into her head for a moment.

“Okay, you can borrow them for a while.” If he kept up the delicious suction, she’d be begging him to try it a little lower in no time.

Helena Harker Guest Blog Post and Interview

Helena Harker, a fellow EC author, is here to tell you about her ebook, Art of Desire. For an extra treat she’s answering a few of my nosy questions in an interview. Leave a comment to win one free copy of “Art of Desire.” Don’t forget to leave your email.

“Art of Desire” was a lot of fun to write, and I was thrilled when Ellora’s Cave accepted it. My idea was to have a teacher (Jenna) run into her former student (Justin) one day, a student she had a major crush on, and decide to make her fantasies a reality. To spice things up, I made the student an Art major who asked her to pose nude for a lifecasting assignment.

I wanted Justin to turn the tables on Jenna. She’s been fantasizing about Justin for a year, and now she can finally let her cougar roar and go after him! But Justin has other plans. He wants to teach her about taking it slow, about being patient, and when she’s trapped in the alginate mold, it’s the perfect opportunity to make Jenna hunger for more without giving it to her right away.

To get a better idea of what I’m talking about—from the pros of lifecasting—here’s a link to a few sites. The video will give you a much better idea of how it’s done.

This site explains part of the process: http://www.bodysculpture.uk.com/lifecasting_process.html

Here’s a video that shows you how it’s done (warning: the model is nude!)

I hope you understand the process now! I love art myself, but I’m into drawing, painting and photography. Lifecasting isn’t something I’ve ever tried, and I’m sure I never will.

Blurb: When Jenna runs into a former student she used to have a crush on, she decides to make her lusty fantasies a reality. Justin is studying Fine Arts in university, and when he asks Jenna to pose nude for a sculpture, her inner cougar tells her to go for it. But while Jenna can’t wait to teach him how to pleasure an older woman, Justin turns the tables and decides to teach her the art of patience.

Excerpt:

His arctic-blue eyes met mine, and shivers of recognition danced through me.

I hadn’t seen him in a year, but it felt like only days. As gorgeous as ever, Justin arched his brows in surprise, giving me a shy smile before pouring red wine into two long-stemmed glasses.

So he worked as a bartender in a hotel restaurant. Maybe I’d ask him for a Sex on the Beach or better yet, a Screaming Orgasm. I grinned. Still eyeing his dirty-blond hair, neatly trimmed beard and square jaw—God, I’d love to trail my fingers along that jaw—I walked to the bar, swept my short ruffled skirt under me and sat down. Long, black hair fell past my shoulders. I tucked a few strands behind my ear, glad I’d taken extra time this morning to apply Bold Bordeaux, my favorite shade of lipstick, and matching eye shadow.

Hey, scrumptious, I wanted to say, but opted for a more acceptable, “Hi, Justin, how have you been?” My teeth snagged on my lower lip, and butterflies came alive in my stomach. Why the hell was I this nervous?

Because he’s half your age, my conscience snapped. And in case you’ve forgotten, he’s your student.

Former student, my inner cougar growled back. He graduated last June, remember?

“Hi, Mrs. Fall—”

“Jenna!” I corrected him. No need for formalities, especially since they reminded me of my age. “I’m not your teacher anymore.”

“Jenna,” he said slowly, savoring every syllable as it rolled off his tongue. He returned the bottle to its shelf and offered me the wine list. “Great to see you. I’m going to the University of Montreal now. I started a massage therapy program last summer, but I quit. Needed something more intellectually stimulating.”

Oh I could stimulate you in all kinds of ways, the cougar inside me purred.

Ooh, steamy, Helena. Now onto the interview.

Bio: Helena Harker is a teacher by day, writer by night, a daydreamer who loves to escape to other worlds. Her fiction is populated by strong men, passionate women and lots of paranormal creatures. In her free time she enjoys photography and curling up with a good book. She is multi-published and also writes in other genres.

Stormie:  What do you do when you’re not writing?

Helena: I take care of two little girls all by myself. So when they go to bed at seven, I heave a great big sigh of relief and grab my laptop to do some writing.

Stormie:  How/why did you choose the genre you are in?

Helena: I got really frustrated that it was very difficult to sell and market my young adult books. So I started writing erotic short stories, and they got picked up immediately and by Ellora’s Cave, no less! So bye-bye children’s book! I’m giving up on that genre.

Stormie:  Are you a plotter, pantser or a hybrid?

Helena: When I start a project, I just let it flow. The first few chapters just develop on their own. After that, I need to plan, so I have a 12-point chart based on Chris Vogler’s Hero’s Journey, and that’s what I try to follow until I get to the end.

Stormie:  How do you market your work? What works best for you?

Helena: What works best? I think that’s one of the great mysteries of the universe. I wish I knew. Marketing erotica is different from marketing YA novels, and I am still trying to figure out what works best.

Stormie:  Tell us about your upcoming book or new release.

Helena: I have an erotic steampunk novella coming out on Feb. 8th. It’s called “Carnal Devices”, about a prostitute in Lower London who is tired of her clients and wants to become a wealthy courtesan by getting clients from the Steam Society, an exclusive men’s club full of aviators and inventors. Her name is India, and she creates a new persona for herself called India of Rajasthan. Here’s a link to the cover. I think it’s breathtaking! http://www.helenaharker.com/novellas.html
