Hot Hump Day Excerpt: Solia's Moon by Lyn Brittan

Thanks to Lyn for getting us through the week with this scorching excerpt for hot hump day!
~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Don’t do that again, unless you want me to do things to you in public.”
“It’s a tent and that was only peck.”
“You forget - I know what those lips can do.”
With every word, he grew harder behind her, his length pressing against her hips. He let go of the gun, placing it on the floor, right in front of her. “Whatever you do, keep your eye on the door.”
The arm under her neck hadn’t moved, but the one she’d kissed lowered until his hand snaked its way down her trousers, cupping her. “I never forgot how wet you get.”
“Sorry I-“
“Back to apologizing for that?”
She gasped as he shoved two fingers inside her. “Suppose we have to thank your Thomas for that. Are your eyes still on the door?”
“Yes, but Thomas isn’t my anything anymore.” She said it with no small amount of difficulty. While two fingers moved inside her, his thumb circled her clit with agonizing speed, nearly to the point of delicious pain.
“Damn straight.” It was the last thing he said before flipping her over and shoving his cock inside, balls deep, as promised.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When her terraforming company expands beyond creating habitable places to creating humanoid life, Lunar Physician Solia Calian has to find a way to stop them. She’ll have the help of Lunar Sheriff Giancarlo Sable, but they’d better hurry up.

Saturday Storyteller Interview: Nikki Sex

Please welcome the gorgeous Nikki as she tells us about her hot new release and her favourite characters!
What’s your name and where do you come from?
My name is Nikki Sex. I was born in the US, but now I live in sun-shiny Sydney!
Lucky you! So tell us a bit about your latest release.
My latest book Karma is a story about how the choices we make can lead to good or bad things. My heroine finds her confidence as a person and a desirable woman. It is a stand-alone feel good story that will hopefully make people think about why things happen the way they do.
Now your stuff is pretty hooooot, where do you get your inspiration from?
I know it sounds trite. . . but I really do get my stories from real life. Every story I’ve written has an element of truth to it, whether it’s from my life, or from something that happened to a friend, or from someone I’ve worked with. I think we all have a story to tell, and I’ve been lucky enough to tell more than my fair share!
And with all these gorgeous heroes you write, do you have a favourite character from your books? Why are they your favourite?
Oh it’s Andre for sure! He plays some role in all of my books. I would be very happy if I had an Andre all of my own ;-)
What do you do to unwind and relax?
I watch a lot of British comedy :-) I love Vicar of Dibley, and Red Dwarf, and the I.T. Crowd. Awesome.
Now spill...what’s your greatest weakness?
Like a lot of people, I tend to doubt myself more often than is healthy. Even now, when so many of my books have been successful, I still find myself thinking “I don’t know why I’m writing this, it’s crap, I shouldn’t even bother.” I think most authors run into this stumbling block on occasion.
Thanks so much for joining us today, Nikki. To round things up why don't you tell us something that might surprise our readers.
For years I worked as a nurse in a prison, and also at a psychiatric ward. Never a boring day working there!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometimes love has nothing to do with luck, and everything to do with karma…
Marcy Paget worked full-time putting her husband through University. When he finally became a success, he dumped her for a trophy wife more than ten years younger, leaving Marcy to raise their four year old daughter on her own.
Even though Marcy knows she is better off alone than with a cheating husband who doesn't love her, she is still struggling to make ends meet.
When an ethical dilemma presents itself she makes a choice - never realizing the incredible karmic chain of events that will follow her decision. . .

Thumbs Up Thursday: A Sunset Finish by Melinda Moore

An enchanting love story with the right amount of angst and struggle from beginning to end.

The story takes you into the life of Stephanie, a young violinist who is starting her first job in the New Mexico's symphonic orchestra. It is a change of life that will lead her into a path of self-discovery as she fights her depression and self-harm tendencies, while she falls in love.

Bruce is a man who has his own secret struggles---struggles that will take Stephanie down a dangerous road that could have her losing everything, even her soul. Although the story was a little confusing at the beginning, I recommend that you persevere. The paranormal elements are very well written as I suspect being possessed is a very difficult topic to write well.

As the reader goes deeper into the story, they discover what has shaped Stephanie's life, and Ms Moore describes her character's depression with sensitivity. Stephanie is vulnerable, but not weak, which makes the reader like her. Bruce is strong. Just my type of hero. He is mysterious at the beginning but as the story goes further you see a depth to the character. It is then that you understand why these two characters are so drawn to each other. I liked her descriptions of the supernatural events very much and Ms Moore's writing style and descriptions allow you to feel as if you were the one living it---immersing you into this mystic world of music and ancient religions held together by a magical love story between these two lost souls.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Stephanie Minagawa travels to Albuquerque as a last resort for her music career, only to have her violin split apart in the arid air. When she takes it to a repair shop on the pueblo, she enters a world of spirits and yearning. Her body is taken over by the ghost of the craftsman’s dead wife, and she must decide between the quiet death she’s longed for, or claiming a new life of music and love.

Hot Hump Day Excerpt - Highland Beauty by Krystal Brookes

Today's Hot Hump Day Excerpt comes from Highland Beauty by Krystal Brookes.
It's a contemporary Scottish romance and she's encouraging him out of his kilt etc. 

“Take off your sporran,” she urged as he moved to pin her against the wall. She could just see his dark shape advancing on her. She settled herself against the cave wall.
When he pulled on her waist and crushed his mouth against hers, she couldn't help thinking that this was the right thing to do. He had been so patient and even if they could only make love properly this once, then it was better than nothing.
Moisture ran into her knickers, and she squirmed against the hardness under his kilt.
“Don't be so damned impatient,” he murmured as he started to kiss down her neck. The warm, wet pecks on her cool neck made her shudder, but she extended it to give him better access. How she wanted just to rip her clothes off.
Luckily her dress had no straps and as he kissed down her chest to the neckline of her dress, he was able to just pop her breast from its confines. As he licked around the hardened bud, she groaned loudly. They had done this plenty of times before, but she had always been ready to stop him. Aware that the moment would come when she had to say stop. Was he waiting for it this time? Was he preparing himself for frustration and yet another argument? But with her plan in place, there was no need for it. As long as she got him excited enough to not bother undressing her fully.
“Oh fuck, you have the best tits.”
She allowed herself to relax and enjoy the myriad of sensations that this one action was sending through her body. While she longed to move things on, she wanted to savour each moment of their one time together. She wondered for a moment what his tongue on her clit would feel like.

Would he let her sit on his face and ride his tongue, or would he insist on being on top? He had moved onto the other breast while he used a finger and thumb to tweak and rub the abandoned nipple. She arched into his ministrations. It was entirely possible that she could come just having her breasts suckled by his expert mouth. But he started to kiss his way back up her chest and onto her neck.

Blurb

Everyone knows about Sadie MacNeil's secret apart from her ex-boyfriend, Calum. It was her secret that drove them apart. Having decided that the single life was the best thing for her, Sadie has returned to Kilrigh to begin again. She doesn't bank on Calum following her up to the small Hebridean island.

Try as she may, Sadie can't convince either Calum or herself that she's over him. She begins to find ways to continue their relationship while keeping her secret—ways that require her to be inventive in the bedroom. But will the consequences of an irresponsible night on the beach be the thing that pulls them together or destroys their relationship forever?

Hot Hump Day Excerpt: The Offer by Crystal Blue

Thanks to Crystal for a bit of heat to get us through the week! Read on for a great excerpt.

~~~~~~~~~~Excerpt~~~~~~~~~~
As they stood from the bench where they had been sitting, both brothers revealed beautiful, well-toned bodies with nearly identical erections jutting from their naked loins. My jaw dropped. I don’t know whether I was more surprised that they were naked or at the sheer, overwhelming lust that seized me. Either way, I was frozen in mid-stride.
“We think you should take off the swimsuit, too,” they chorused.
“Oh, m-my god!” I stammered.
There it was again, the quick look between them, and then they waded toward me, hands outstretched to enforce their demand that I take off the suit. I could run, or I could scream. I wasn’t going to do either one.
It was then that I knew with a certainty that rivaled anything I had ever known; I was about to have a grand adventure. Not one brother, but both! Ho-ly shit! I stood there, electrified as they reached me, each one reaching out for a suit strap, each one claiming a breast as it was freed from the suit. The cool air hit my nipples, and they immediately puckered. Yes, of course it was the air. How could I possibly have been so turned on so fast? As the brothers peeled the suit further down and exposed my mound, the cold air also caused me to become quite moist between the legs. Oh, wait. Cold air doesn’t cause that, does it?
We waded back toward their drinks, abandoned on the side of the spa when they came after me. As they seated me between them, Jon said, “Are you sure you don’t want a drink?” At the moment, I would have gladly taken a shot of tequila, but I didn’t want to take the chance that they would change their minds about being naked with me in the spa. I’d do without, but my mouth was dry. I would have to find a way to fix that.
Jon helped at that moment by putting his hand on my throat and tilting my chin back. His eyes, dark in the moonlight, glittered as he claimed the first kiss. His fingers joined his tongue, invading my lips, forcing me to open to his deep kiss. This was the most intoxicating kiss of my life, maybe because I knew the hand on my breast and the other one that was questing downward didn’t belong to the man who was kissing me. One of his hands was still on my throat, and the other one was tangled in my hair, holding my head still. His tongue and breath tasted of Scotch, which suddenly became my favorite liquor. Time stopped, and I only knew the kiss. I could die happy during a kiss like that.

Thumbs up Thursday: Tainted by Christina Phillips

Oh my...

Where to start? Well, having read the previous in the series, Betrayed, I knew what to expect. A full immersion into the world of Roman Britain, a beautiful connection between two characters and a well-written, satisfying story. I got all this and more with Tainted.

The biggest appeal in the beginning is Gawain. The beautiful Cambrian warrior. I'm a sucker for warrior type men. Big, beautiful bodies, strong, commanding tendencies and a real belief in duty and heritage. But Gawain is written so beautifully that his alpha male ways are never dampened by his moments of kindness and compassion. I dare you not to fall in love with him. And unlike a lot of alpha males, he's very aware of himself and his feelings. It takes him a while, admittedly, but admirably he accepts his love for Antonia and his determination to forge a future in a world that will seemingly never accept them is enough to tug on your heart strings.

And Antonia. Lovely, Antonia. She appears fragile, ethereal, beautiful. I find I'm quite a fan of these slightly delicate heroines that only reveal their strength to us as the story progresses. It makes a change from feisty, fiery tongued heroines. As much as I love them, strength can come from within and I admire a writer who recognises that. And as a reader, you immediately feel sympathy for her as we learn of the things she has endured during her time in Rome with the husband who has now abandoned her after she cannot deliver any sons to term.

What starts out as an extremely erotic, yet thoroughly sensual and beautiful relationship between Gawain and Antonia, soon turns into what I could quite easily class as epic love. It's the kind of story where everyone is against them and you can't see how they could possibly be together yet you yearn for it so much your heart aches. They come together very quickly but the chemistry is so intense and Antonia's reasonings so logical that is doesn't seem rushed and it's easy to see why they fall for each other. Both are strong characters in their own way, balancing out one another and both are able to laugh and love generously.

And if I sound too gushing, I do think I found myself a little impatient in the first chapters. There was a bit of push and pull between Gawain and Antonia and I urgently wanted to rush through it to get to the good stuff. But once this book has you in it's hold, it will not release you and I'm pretty sure Gawain and Antonia will stay with me for a long time.

If you like raw, erotic but romantic stories with a hero you are bound to fall for and heroine you can't help but admire, then I highly recommend Tainted. Ms. Phillips delivers the luxury of Rome, bound with the primitive earthiness of Celtic Britain and weaves a beautiful story of love that will play out perfectly in your head.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A dangerous love that Rome will never allow…
Driven by his failure to protect his king and embittered at losing the woman he loves, Celtic warrior Gawain despises the lust he feels for the beautiful Roman patrician, Antonia. She is everything he’s never wanted in a woman, yet she ignites his passion like no other. Despite the danger of discovery, he embarks on an illicit liaison with her, determined to uncover the reason for the infinite sorrow that haunts her eyes.

Newly arrived in Britannia from Rome, Antonia is inexplicably drawn to the cold, tough Celt whose touch stirs a desire she long thought dead at the hands of her brutal former husband. With Gawain, she learns the pleasure of sex and his unexpected tenderness thaws her frozen heart. But she hides a deadly secret that could be her undoing, and knows her growing feelings for him can lead nowhere. When a shadow from her past threatens her future, Antonia is torn between the Empire of her birth and betraying Gawain, the man she’s grown to love.

Inside Scoop: This medieval romance dabbles a wee bit in the paranormal.

Hot Hump Day Excerpt: Hot Mess by Anne Conley

Please welcome Anne to our blog today! She's share this ho-ot excerpt from a book with an equally hot title, Hot Mess! Enjoy!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
He followed her to the front door, and as soon as she had unlocked it, and led him inside, he wrapped his arms around her.  Rachel tried to push away, but her attempts were feeble, at best.  She knew what would happen as soon as they talked, and she wanted to enjoy him while he lasted.  She surrendered to his grasp, then to his kiss.
Sam slanted his mouth over hers, and she opened up for him, knowing in her heart that this kiss would probably be their last.  That was her last coherent thought for a while.  His tongue invaded her mouth, conquering it with thrusts and swirls around hers.  His hands gripped her waist tightly, pulling her close to him.  Rachel dug her hands in his hair, unwilling to let go, seeking his heated mouth to take her, make her forget.
He groaned into her mouth, a low, throaty sound that made her knees weak.  Sam's hands reached around and grabbed her rear, lifting her against his erection, and setting her atop a Bombay chest in her entry way.  She whimpered, and Sam's mouth moved to her jaw, branding her with hot, wet kisses to her earlobe, before pulling it into his mouth and sucking.  A shiver of delight shot through Rachel.  She grabbed his shoulders, and leaned back, giving him access to more of her skin.
She moaned as his mouth continued trailing kisses down her neck, while his hands slowly pulled the straps of her dress off her shoulders, leaving kisses in their place, freeing her breasts.  He kissed one, then the other, while his hands toyed with them alternately.  Rachel had never felt anything close to the exquisite torture that Sam's mouth was putting her through, and she didn't want it to stop.
One of his hands traveled slowly to her skirt, pulling it up around her hips, then reached down between her legs.  A gasping moan escaped Rachel, and it was a foreign sound.  His hand found her heated wetness, and she could feel him smile around her nipple in his mouth.  She suddenly wanted him everywhere, against her, skin on skin.
Against her will, her legs opened, and Sam stepped inside, before she wrapped them around his hips, squeezing, pressing against him to relieve some pressure.  Sam's mouth traveled back up her neck to her mouth, as his fingers went to work on other parts of her body.  One hand stayed on her breast, twisting the nipple into stiff points.  The other hand stayed in her panties, and began circling the nub there, eliciting a shocked gasp.  Alarms clanged dimly in her subconscious, as she tried to sit up, to stop him.
"…Wait, Sam…"  Her hands moved to push him back.
"No."
"Excuse me?"
"Just feel it, Rachel."  He whispered into her mouth.  His voice was so seductive, she had no choice but to comply.  His tongue continued its merciless assault on her mouth, and she was helpless to interact with it.  She just reacted, while he made love to her body with his hands and mouth.  The alarms continued to clang dimly, a warning sound, saying, "Danger.  Danger."
When he slipped a finger inside her heat, she moaned into his mouth, and Sam began to move a little faster.  His thumb circled her clit, while the inserted finger danced in and out of the slickness.  He groaned against her mouth, as he pushed his erection against her thigh, showing her how turned on he was.
When he slipped the second finger inside of her, and curled them both up slightly, the thumb continuing its circular motions on her nub, Rachel convulsed against him as waves of exquisite pleasure rocked her body.  Sam's mouth swallowed her guttural moans and gasps as she came around his fingers.  The shock of the intense sensations reminded Rachel of what happens when hormones ruled.
Tears sprang to her eyes, unbidden.  What had she done?  This had gone way further than the simple hug and kiss she had intended to allow before they had their talk, and now, here he was, planning to pick her up and cart her off to a bed, to make wild dangerous love to her.
"Sam…I…"
He did it.  Sam's arms slipped around her, and picked her up, starting down the hallway in the direction of her bedroom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Sam is a single dad trying to get over the death of his ex-wife, and help his daughter move on from the loss of her mother.
Rachel is a single mom with a secret of her own that has kept her out of the dating scene for years.
