Erotic Romance Weekend - Stacey Kennedy (Guest Post & Giveaway)

And now we have the truly awesome author Stacey Kennedy who pens fabulous urban fantasy, paranormal romance and erotic romances! She is joining us with a guest post and giveaway of her new erotic romance Somewhere in Between!  Don't forget to see what great authors Kelly has visiting at Secrets of a Book Lover!

Ooo a blog event dedicated to erotic romance. Now we’re talking! I tend to write erotic romance as a way to give my muse a break from writing my urban fantasy romances. I love the freedom it gives to get a little naughty and not to worry so much about a big bad villain, and focus more on the couple heating up the sheets.

In my newest release, Somewhere in Between, I got to take that a step further. I had my first adventure with writing m/m in the story Takedown. After I finished it, I knew I wanted to write another one that involved the same characters. But I wanted to up the fun and add a woman into the mix. That’s how Somewhere in Between came about. This was the first time that I’ve ever written men who were lovers, but also extended that love to a woman.
*fans self* That is all I can say about that. I’ve written ménage before where there were two men, but their focus was on the woman, not each other. The steaminess of the story was kicked up a notch when the men can interact with each other *grins*. Really, do I need to say more?
Add that to the fact that both men in Somewhere in Between are two very tough Alpha men. Wyatt is a U.S. Marshal and Rye is a UFC fighter—and grab a cold glass of water, or maybe keep your husbands close by, because these two create some hot scenes. Not only together—which yes, there is a m/m dedicated just to these two men, but also the ménage scene that adds Darby into the mix.
I had never thought I would write a m/m story, or a ménage that brought  a woman into the fun, but trust me when I say, I’m glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed every single moment of it. So, if you’re on the fence about reading something like this…let me tell you, it’s worth it. If you like your men Alpha—think about what it’d be like to have two of them in one book…gettin’ it on!!

U.S. Marshal, Wyatt Tanning is in a race to catch a serial killer who has evaded the authorities. Just as the case hits a dead end, an unexpected email gives him a lead. As much as he wants to share the surprising message with his lover, Rye Daniels, he must hunt a killer first.
Darby Grant never expected that one night would change her life forever, but that’s exactly what happened. Not only has she been abducted, but she is in a situation that nightmares are made of. As she begins to lose all hope, fate steps in to offer her aid, but she’s well aware things will never be the same again. Soon, though, Darby begins to realize that might not be such a bad thing…*WARNING:  m/m and also ménage love scene.

Wyatt sprinted up the front porch, hearing the wood crack and groan under his weight. At the front door, he raised his foot and kicked the door open with a crash. Holding his weapon at shoulder height, he placed the flashlight underneath to offer light in the dark space and entered cautiously.
“Spread out,” he ordered.
His team dispersed, each taking a room to search. Wyatt strode forward and kept his gun in his line of vision. He scoped out the living room; if he could even call it such. Old furniture situated around the room sat covered in dust—so much in fact, it itched his nose.
“Clear,” Taryn called out from the kitchen.
He glanced around, looking behind the couch first then searched every place someone might hide. He found nothing. “Clear,” he replied. Each of the deputies issued the same response from upstairs to confirm the house lay empty.
Lowering his gun, he sighed. He’d hoped the lead Madame Eve gave would have brought them to Marcus. Apparently, she’d been wrong, and that not only confused, but irritated him. His hopes had risen only to plummet again.
He spun around to approach Taryn in the kitchen, and a light caught his eye. If he’d come in the daytime he never would’ve seen it, but being pitch black in the room, the light glowed through the dark space. A small hole, maybe the size of a pea, sat at the bottom of the far wall.
Wyatt raised his gun and approached. “I’ve got something here.” At the wall, he squatted and ran his finger over the light. He looked to Taryn when she stepped in next to him. “There’s something behind here.”
He stood, raised his leg and after a few well-placed kicks, his foot went through the wall. He peered through the hole to see a set of stairs, and a wall lined with soundproofing. Turning his gun around, he  used the butt end to bash in the wall.
The loud cracking of wood filled his ears, but the second he stopped, something else registered in the air—a loud scream for help. He jerked his head toward Taryn. “Did you hear that?”
“I heard it.” She pushed on his back. “Go.”

Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll find fast paced action, life threatening moments and a big bad villain that needs to be destroyed. Her urban fantasy/paranormal and erotic romance series have hit Amazon Kindle and All Romance Ebooks Bestseller lists. If she isn’t plugging away at her next novel, tending to her two little ones, she’s got her nose deep in a good book. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband. Be sure to drop her a line at, she loves to hear from her readers.
