A Spicy Hero for a Caliente Blog Jump with Mia Downing

Edited to add my prize winner: 

(Randomly picked by author friend, Jake Wittol.)

Thanks for participating!

Welcome to the Caliente Blog Hop hosted by 

the Four Seduced Muses!

I love spicy things, from really good salsa to steamy hot men. Hand me a margarita and it's an instant party! 

My hero from the Spy Games series, Secret Agent Jake Anderson, is the ultimate in caliente heroes. He's dark blond, 6' with a beefy build. He's quick to laugh, loves to place bets on the stupidest things and thinks fun should be the first task to accomplish on anyone's agenda. He doesn't take himself--or love--seriously, especially after loving and losing in the most tragic way. Roll with the punches and drink the tequila. That's his plan from here on out. 

But Karma has a thing or two to say about Jake's plans for living the fast life. And in this little excerpt, we get to see what Jake thinks of payback in the form of one frustrated, sexy spy. 

A Caliente Excerpt From Spy Games: Lethal Limits

Jake woke, disoriented, his neck and head hurting like hell. He shook his head to clear it and looked up at the ceiling, then lifted his head, his spy senses on full alert. Tia stood before him, leaning against the wall, her black hair cascading over her shoulders in loose curls. Her long fingers paged through a magazine, which was a strange contrast to how she was dressed. 

She had stripped down to a bra, panties, and black thigh-high stockings. So beautiful, those long legs, that creamy few inches of bare skin between her stockings and panties calling to him like a siren’s song. The bra and panties were black, gauzy things that revealed as much as they hid. Her firm breasts thrust forward as she drew in a deep sigh, the nipples pert, ready for his mouth or clamps. 

He went to say something and realized he couldn’t. His mouth wouldn’t open. What the hell? He then tried to move his arm to see to whatever was wrong with his mouth and realized she had him bound to her bed and gagged— probably tape. He hated tape. He wished she’d thought ahead and used a ball gag instead. Not that he’d ever tried one. He usually did the gagging. The binding. 

He wiggled his wrists— more tape. No way was he escaping this easily. But did he want to? 

He glanced down. A cool breeze over his thighs told him he was naked, and a test of one foot revealed she’d bound his legs, too. He broke out into a cold sweat. The idea of being made to submit scared the hell out of him but also excited his wildest dark side. His cock went from flaccid to semi-hard in a nanosecond, and it would just be moments before she had him fully aroused. She had said he would regret what she had planned. He’d soon find out if he did or if he wanted more. Right now, he wanted every twisted thing she had to give him.

“Ah, you’re awake.” Tia tossed the magazine on the desk next to her. “We have unfinished business.” She ran her finger up the bottom of his foot. It tickled and he jumped. “I didn’t realize you were ticklish, Jake.”

 Neither did he. She strutted like a cat, slow, ready to pounce, stopping at his hip. Her smile was slow, calculating. Then she wet her bottom lip with her tongue, so subconsciously seductive. His cock jumped. 

“I see this excites you. I know it’s not your style, the Dom that you are. I told you that you’d regret what I had planned. And there’s a reason for it.” 

He didn’t want a reason. He wanted her to fuck him. Now. He was more than ready. She ran her finger along the length of his thigh, and his leg trembled. She stopped at the edge of his groin, her fingers just shy of his dick. He willed that hand closer. To grab him. Stroke him...
So what did you think? Need a margarita yet? I hope so!

For a book to be caliente, I need to feel an emotional connection between the characters. Otherwise, all the sexual gymnastics in the world leave me cold.

Nay Nay said...

I like erotic romances. I'm not crazy about erotica (which is the sex without the emotional connection between the characters) I want the characters to pull me into the story and their lives. And if they want to have HOT SPICY SEX all the better for me. LOL
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

I find Jake muy caliente! He is the epitome of sexy (in my dreams)! LOL

Meghan said...

I love blog hops! Thanks for participating in this one! As I do love my romance spicy, this is a good hop for me. One of my favorite romances with a spicy edge is "Beautiful Bastard" by Christina Lauren. I can't wait for the second in the series to come out, "Beautiful Stranger." I do have to admit, however, that the hottest trait in a guy is his sense of honor. I like a guy who is nice to EVERYONE, not just me!
Thanks for the giveaway!
