Top 5 Kinky Snippets


1. “Straddle me.” His voice was rough with desire. “Then I’ll spank you.”

2. It was as if electricity crackled on the word correct. Or maybe that was because I bowed my head without even realizing it. 
His voice was low and smooth. “And how shall I correct you?”
“Any way you see fit,” I whispered.

Some ransoms aren’t meant to be paid. – Kidnap and Ransom negotiation used to be straightforward. 
The bad guys kidnap someone, and K&R expert Jackson Pastor negotiates their release, skillfully traversing a maze of bloodthirsty monsters: criminals, terrorists, police, and especially the FBI.

But that was before he met real bloodthirsty monsters.

When Jackson Pastor arrives in Los Angeles to help a new client recover his kidnapped wife, he finds himself dropped in the middle of a 500-year-old war between rival European and Mexican vampire clans, a conflict that threatens to escalate into a full-on public gang war. Worse, Jackson hasn’t been brought to Los Angeles to be a negotiator.

His new boss wants to turn him into an assassin.

With Jackson about to be caught in the middle of a clan war, his only hope of escape may lie with a secret FBI monster-hunting task-force led by a very dangerous, eccentric wizard.

Which could be a problem, since Jack’s a monster himself.

Blood Chimera is gritty, noir-style mystery of paranormal proportions where nothing is as it seems, not even the term “vampire.”

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

In The Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists.

Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive.

For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .

Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off.


Thoughts:
“But with Sydney... with Sydney, I'd had it all- And lost it all. Love, understanding, respect. The sense that we'd both become better people because of each other and could take on anything so long as we were together. Only we weren't together anymore. They'd ripped us apart, and I didn't know what was going to happen now.” -- Adrian Ivashkov

Please give a warm welcome to an all-time favorite, can't-miss author, Lori Foster! 


1. Can you tell us a little bit about your latest release, NO LIMITS?

This is Cannon’s story, a character that readers met in my last series, Love Undercover. From the second Cannon showed up on the page, I knew he’d get his own story. He’s that kind of guy, the guy who steps up and takes notice and gets a lot of notice in return.

In NO LIMITS, Cannon reunites with Yvette, another character from the previous series. They parted under strained circumstances, with Cannon just heading into professional MMA and Yvette young and traumatized from a horrific threat. Cannon saved her then, but he was noble because of her age and what she’d been through. Now she’s older, more independent, and he’s ready to make up for lost time.

A bizarre assignment from a substitute teacher quickly turns deadly in the epic thrill-ride through time. 

Thirteen-year-old Blake Wyatt dug his bloodied fingers into the splintered railing of the ancient ship, struggling for footing in the violent storm. 

Minutes ago he was texting his friends in his boring history class. Now, Blake finds himself aboard the sinking Santa Maria—with the great Christopher Columbus begging for his help. 

The Admiral is about to be murdered—Dagonblud’s latest victim in his quest to erase the world’s history so he can replace it with his evil empire. Blake is the last surviving Sapphire Traveler who can save him. He must master his incredible new powers so he can sneak through time and destroy the Tolucan leader. But Dagonblud is planning a big surprise.

Will Blake succeed where all others have failed? The only thing that is certain is that Blake’s life, and the world around him, will never be the same.

Please give a warm welcome to a shining star in the paranormal romance world and one of my first and favorite authors in the genre, Maggie Shane! 



My Favorite FANGIRL Moment

My very favorite Fangirl moment happened to me at a Romance Writers of America Convention a couple of years ago. I take my RWA conventions very seriously. I go to workshops, and not just the Published Authors Network (PAN) sessions either. 

I saw in the program that my writing idol, Karen Robards, was giving a session on Romantic Suspense, and I was so excited that I might finally get to meet her after all my years of reading everything she wrote and basically worshipping at her feet, that I arrived for the session early so I could get a front row seat. And I think I probably gawked at her like a Ninja Turtle gawks at a pizza for the entire hour. I hope I didn’t drool. But I might have.

Elemental Magic Series by Brynna Curry (Guest Post/Giveaway)



Research and its random path.

To me, research is perhaps the easiest part of the writing process. I never know where my story ideas will come from, but the research for them is a solid, tangible thing I can do even when the actual writing isn't progressively as quickly as I want it to. The idea for Elemental Magic was born out of a dream, one filled with magic, Celts, and foreign lands. That meant a lot research and knowing where I could take literary license.

A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again. 

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skylar’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.


Thoughts:
One Night of Sin is a wickedly sexy story from Entangled's Brazen line that features an ex-MMA fighter with a rough past that he can't seem to shake and a woman who after taking a ride on the wild side, never wants to get off!

A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

She has a plan. He’s about to change it.

Regan Wakefield is a headhunter in both name and personality: driven, motivated, and unafraid to pursue what—and who—she wants. Naturally, she’s thrilled when her friend's wedding offers her an opportunity to score Logan McCade, the practically perfect best man. Unfortunately, groomsman Brock McNeil keeps getting in her way, riling her up in the most delicious of ways. But Brock’s smooth southern charm isn't part of the plan...so how exactly did they end up having searing-hot sex?

Regan may pretend the erotic electricity sparking between them is merely a distraction, but Brock knows better. She refuses to see beyond the devil-may-care fa├žade he presents to the world, while he sees straight through hers. Changing her mind—and getting under her skin—is a challenge he can’t resist. And when he wins, Brock will do whatever it takes to convince Regan that the best man for her is him.


Thoughts:
”Woman you’re as mean as a copperhead. Come here let’s find out if you’re as cold-blooded.”
