Day 17 – 30 Days of Christmas

Today, I’m welcoming two of my favorite authors as well as giving away my first Ellora’s Cave book, Rock My World. I’ve two more books coming from EC soon, but this one is special to me. The hero is amazing and I’ll admit I sort of have my own version of Sin at home since Rott is a rocker who plays guitar. The other two authors are my fellow EC authors Cerise DeLand and Lacey Savage. Between us, we’ve got three really exciting books to bring you today. Here’s the book and author info.

Rock My World

Ellora’s Cave

M/F Erotic Contemporary Romance

Blurb:

Rock star Gia Santora is at the height of her career when a frightening brush with a psychotic stalker changes her life. She’s ready for more than a string of one-night stands on the road, but finding a date isn’t easy for a woman with a bodyguard. When she meets her sexy, young opening act, he pushes all her buttons, sexually and emotionally.

Sin Carstens is rock’s hottest new guitar god with a body and a voice to match his name. He takes Gia on a wild sexual ride that has them literally rockin’ the tour bus. But Sin’s got priorities other than music and sex. He wants a relationship with the commitment-shy Gia. With the stalker on the loose and their lives on the line, Sin’s willing to fight Gia’s fears in an effort to win himself the sexiest woman he’s ever known and prove that he can rock her world.

Blurb:

Tate Ryder has spent his life savoring plenty of women—until luscious Anna Stevens ruins him for any other female. Too bad Anna doesn’t seem to know he’s alive. Then, one night Anna is attacked outside his condo. Frantic to protect her, Tate whisks her off to his yacht, where he vows to save her from her mysterious enemies and enchant her sleek body with pleasures she’s only imagined.

Anna answers his intimate kisses with scorching caresses–and wild revelations. She’s been on the run from thugs for years. She’s not who she claims. But one thing is real—her deep craving for Tate. Enthralled, Tate lays bare her body…and is equally determined to lay bare her nameless enemy, if he can only save her from her past.

What’s a gal to do if she hails from D.C., lives now deep in the heart of Texas, travels often everywhere, and adores Paris, Florence, London, Tokyo and all points east and west?

Ah.

She becomes an author who can write about those romantic places. And if your sweet tooth craves spies, pirates, body guards and gutsy women of today and yesteryears of medieval and Regency England, then she is the author you crave for smoldering erotic encounters and delicious love affairs!

Her name? Cerise DeLand.

What’s more is that Cerise is the award-winning author of 18 print novels of mystery, mainstream and romance with St. Martin’s Press, Pocket Books and Kensington. Her books have been on every book club list you can name, including Featured Selections of The Mystery Guild, Doubleday and Rhapsody. And when she isn’t dreaming up fiction? Cerise also writes non-fiction.

Busy lady. Happy writer.

Voices in the Dark

Ellora’s Cave

M/F Erotic Contemporary romance

Blurb:

Maddie’s coworkers have no idea that she gets off on calling random men, whispering raunchy fantasies in their ears and hearing them orgasm at the sound of her voice. Her fetish is fun, daring and most importantly, safe. That’s paramount for a transplanted Texan now living in New York.

Sex with strangers is risky. Phone sex is totally anonymous. Until Maddie calls a coworker by mistake. And when Adrian recognizes her voice, he turns her safe little fetish into a dangerous game. One that Maddie can’t possibly win.

Award-winning author Lacey Savage loves to write about her dreams – or more specifically, she loves to breathe life into her steamy fantasies (and she’s got plenty!). She pens erotic tales of true love and mythical destiny, peopled with strong alpha heroes and feisty heroines. A hopeless romantic, Lacey loves writing about the intimate, sensual side of relationships. She currently resides in Ottawa, Canada, with her loving husband and their mischievous cat.

Got your A/C ready to go? You’ll need it with these three books! EC is known for bringing the heat and I think Lacey, Cerise and I have done that today. For a chance to win these three books, leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time tonight. And don’t forget to keep coming back every day until Christmas for a chance to win awesome books!

Happy Holidays!

 

Six Sentence Sunday 52

Many thanks to everyone for coming here each week to see what I have to share. I appreciate your comments. This week, more from Kissing Joan Collins!

Chase arched his darkened brows and smirked, saying, “You’re just jealous you can’t do Joan.”

“You’re right. I am jealous I can’t do Joan.” Logan mustered up a smile, so Chase would think he was playing along when in reality he meant every word. He’d give anything to do Joan…well, Chase dressed as Joan. Never in his life had he found a man in drag attractive, but he’d give his left arm – he needed the right one to write and jack off – to fuck Chase while he wore that dress and heels.

Thanks again for coming by. Please stop by and see the other SSS offerings HERE. And do stop over on my other post today and leave a comment for a chance to win some books! I’m giving away books every day until Christmas at my 30 Days of Christmas giveaway.

Happy Sunday!

 

Day 16 – 30 Days of Christmas

Well, it’s December 10 and the 16th day of my holiday event and I’m late posting! Ack! I have a busy day ahead because I’m going to breakfast with Z.A. Maxfield but skipping my local RWA meeting. For one, my back is out and walking the length of the community center’s cement walkway while bent over slightly isn’t something I want to do. For another, I have to finish Cupid Christmas today. The cowboys weren’t cooperating. I thought their story should be about 8000 words in length. THEY thought differently. Looks like they will be about 16,000 words. Contrary cowboys. *eyeroll*

Enough about them. You’ll hear all about them on Christmas Eve since they are my Dec. 24 giveaway along with holiday books by Z.A. Maxfield and an arc from our editor Kris Jacen at MLR Press. Today’s giveaway is Insolence, an EPIC award and Passionate Plume finalist. I love this book because it’s told solely from the point of view of the hero. The other books and authors in today’s giveaway include Mary Winter’s Heartbeat and Mardi Ballou’s Sherry Amor. Here’s info on the books and authors.

Insolence

Cobblestone Press

M/F, BDSM, Erotic Contemporary Romance

BUY LINK

Blurb:

Aric Calderwood owns a BDSM club called Insolence. When his childhood best friend offers to be his sub for the weekend, Aric discovers that a decade as a Dom is no match for his long held feelings for the arrogant Ainsley Connor. Once he touches her, Aric’s control is overcome by a flood of memories and emotion, and by then he’s not even sure it’s her submission he wants. A weekend of intimacy with Ainsley shows Aric what he’s been missing in his life and he realizes that regardless of whether she’s submissive or insolent, all he wants is her.

 Warning: This story gets inside the head of a very opinionated Dom who’s spent years wanting a woman he never thought he could have.

Heartbeat

Pink Petal Books

M/F erotic contemporary romance

BUY LINK

Blurb:

Reba Dailey thought she had everything she wanted…until a heart attack brought her face-to-face with death. Now, no longer able to continue her high-power job as an advertising executive, she’s forced to discover what she truly wants out of life.

Todd Thorpe knows all about the laws of attraction and how to create energy to heal. He owns Healing Hands, a natural healing center, where he helps people make the most of their life. People like Reba Dailey. One heated kiss four years ago told him they’d be explosive together. And he’s hungered for her ever since.

Now she’s returned, and everything is a matter of a heart. With each steamy encounter, she’s discovering the joy of her new life, and with each heartbeat, she’s falling more and more in love.

Mary Winter commutes between her dream home near the Mark Twain national forest in Missouri and her current residence in Iowa. She lives with a menagerie of animals including an opinionated horse and a cat who was a dog in past life. When not writing spicy tales of erotic romance, she enjoys writing science fiction and fantasy, spending time with her horse, and enjoying the outdoors. Lucky for her, her partner (hero) shares these same passions, and usually both of them can be found in their respective dens writing.

And it’s not far from the truth. Mary began writing in high school after she discovered Silhouette Desire romance novels and realized that she wanted to be the one to write stories that carried readers away from their oh-so-boring lives. She has a deep appreciation and love of the natural, the spirtual, and the metaphysical, which has led to her running Jupiter Gardens and writing for new age and pagan magazines. She is attuned to Reiki II and reads tarot cards.

Right now her household includes six cats, ranging in age from less than six months (Tenzin, former feral kitten) to seventeen years (Tigger, diabetic kitty), her horse, two parrots, a finch flight, a geriatric parakeet flight, and her partner, the hero of her own personal romance story.

Her favorite television shows are Torchwood, Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dr. Who (new), Battlestar Galactica (new), Babylon 5, Farscape, and Sex in the City. Her favorite movies are Spaceballs, The Cutting Edge, Serenity, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, the LoTR trilogy, and probably a few others she’s forgetting. Her musical tastes range from Enya, Clannad, David Arkenstone, David & Steve Gordon, Scott McDonald, and AfroCelt Sound System to Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, and others. WEBSITE

Sherry Amor

Ellora’s Cave

M/F/M erotic contemporary menage

BUY LINK

Blurb:

Francisco Reyes can deal with dying. He can’t deal with leaving Elena Sandoval, his forever love, or ruining their last Christmas together with the truth of his illness. Instead, he hires Rafe McMaster to film a wine commercial for their Sherry Amor and, unbeknownst to either Elena or Rafe, to become her new lover.

To the beat of flamenco music, Elena and Rafe fall into each other’s arms-while Francisco films them. Aghast at what they’ve done, Elena and Rafe can’t believe Francisco not only accepts their lovemaking but also joins them.

Francisco aches seeing his beloved Elena with Rafe, but he believes his plan to provide Elena with a new lover once he is gone is working-until Rafe and Elena take charge and show him neither one is ready to let him go so easily. After all, Christmas is a season of miracles.

By day she’s a mild-mannered language teacher. But after hours, Mardi Ballou’s wild writer persona erupts and entraps her in bondageŠto her computer. Release comes only once she achieves her word count goal, at which point the maniacal chocolate monster will give her one sublime piece. And then she can spend time with her hero husband Lee, who gives great massages at strategic times. So Mardi writes what she knows- romances-hot and mainstream-for Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, NCP, Whiskey Creek, and Changeling. Also women’s fiction. Her most recent releases are, from Ellora’s Cave, Dark Venues, Sherry Amor, Soap Bloke, and Desert Destiny in e-book format and, in print, Long, Slow Ride in the Better with Age anthology and Perfect Pear in the Ripe and Ready anthology. The Fangly, My Dear series-Byte Marks, What’s a Ghoul to Do? and Playing with Matches-is in print from Samhain. Check out all of Mardi’s books, and more, at http://MardiBallou.com.

Day 15 – 30 Days of Christmas

It’s December 9 and today is the midway point in this giveaway. Before I get into the books being offered today, let me remind everyone that the only comments eligible each day are the ones posted by midnight Pacific time that night. Even if the comments are still open on the blog (meaning I didn’t stay up until midnight to close them), we only take into consideration the comments that were posted by the deadline. So if you’re checking back each day make sure you’re commenting on a post where you have a chance to win something. Usually, I post around 6:30 am Pacific time, but if I’m up late I may post it just after midnight. So make sure you check the date of the post before you comment. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to win.

Today’s book is one near and dear to my heart. Unbreak Me is a Lories Best Published finalist, finishing second in the Novella category and it was a Passionate Plume finalist as well. It’s the story of a woman who has lost everything. The only man she ever loved was sent to his death in a far off galaxy and her revenge against those who betrayed him left her scarred for life, imprisoned and tortured. When she discovers her lover is alive she rejoices even though she knows she can never be with him. However, she reckons without his determination and his love for her. And he moves heaven and earth to unbreak her, to give her back her heart, soul and spirit.  I cried writing this story and I hope it touches the readers as it touches me.
