Cover Reveal for Switching Leads #mm #glbt #romance




I'm so excited! Diana Carlile has created another wonderful cover for me to share with you! Sadly, the Campus Cravings M/M bundle will be going away forever the first of the year. If you haven't gotten your copy, this is the chance to do so!

But the great thing is those stories will be released as stand alone novellas. Switching Leads will be released January 13, 2015 to Amazon and is available for pre-order. The exciting part is...I have to have a new cover! So here it is...


Switching Leads (28,000 words)

Blurb for Switching Leads (Campus Cravings: Higher Learning series)

Coach John Graham needs a new assistant coach for Cathia U's equestrian team. The last person he expects to get the job walks into the barn and stops his heart. How is he supposed to focus on the team when his ex-lover—sexy horse trainer Finn Parker—wants back into his life?

Finn has had a hell of a bad year, ending with a horrible riding accident. Instead of looking forward to winter in sunny Florida training horses for the show circuit, he ends up going home to snowy Cathia, NY to heal, physically and emotionally. He'll endure John's frosty reception if it means he'll get what he wants most. He’s used to taking the reins…for love will he switch leads?

A short excerpt from Switching Leads...


A soft knock rattled the door. John pushed away just as it opened and Finn shoved his head in.
“Oh, hey. Can I talk to you?”
“Busy,” John managed, his throat tight, choking down any other words that wanted to come out. Of course, it had to be Finn. He strode over to the desk and shuffled papers through his trembling hands, hoping it all looked natural. Just close the door and go away.
“You okay?” Finn slid through the small gap and shut the door behind him.
Was he? His hand froze on the note Rob had left him earlier, reminding him about Finn starting today, knowing John rarely checked email on the weekend. “Fine.”
“You have to talk to me at some point.” Finn cocked his head. “It’s just a matter of time.”
John whirled and leaned against the desk, his heart racing. Talking wasn’t good. If he was already seeking Finn’s approval, how long would it be before Finn coaxed him into bed? March? February? Hell, next week? Did he have that much will power? How long before his heart would be trampled again?

Spotlight on Battle Cry, A #Fantasy by @MelissaSnark #Amreading #Norse


Today we have a spotlight on Battle Cry (Loki's Wolves Book 2) by Melissa Snark.

Enjoy!

~Mia



Spotlight for Battle Cry (Loki's Wolves Book 2)

Cover by Farah Evers
Survival demands sacrifice. Healing requires forgiveness.

After losing her lover and then her mate, Victoria Storm builds a new life in Sierra Pines, California. When the Norse Fates predict the she-wolf will destroy the world to save her unborn child, her duties as Freya’s priestess conflict with her responsibilities as Odin’s Valkyrie.

Sawyer Barrett has hunted Victoria so passionately, he doesn't know whether he loves or hates her. Desperate to end the fighting, he will take chances with everything—except his heart. This hunter harbors a deadly secret he can't reveal without risking the tentative ceasefire and his father’s continued disapproval.

Men revere him; monsters fear him. Jake Barrett—the notorious Hunter King—values loyalty to family above all else. When he believes his eldest son was murdered by a wolf ally, he releases a chain reaction of violent destruction that claims the lives of both wolves and hunters.

An ancient vampire plots the destruction of wolves and hunters alike. If the embittered rivalry doesn't end quickly, there is no hope for the Hunters, Victoria's pack, or the mortal world.


An Excerpt From Battle Cry (Loki's Wolves Book 2):

Shadows enshrouded Skuld, and her voice manifested upon the air, thick and oppressive, closing in from all sides. "Your daughter will not grow to adulthood in Midgard."
Victoria's heart slammed against her breastbone. Her breath expelled in a horrified gust. The bowl dropped from her hands which flew to protect her abdomen. "What do you mean?"
"Your daughter will be taken from you on the eve of her third birthday," Skuld said. "The one you trust most, a member of your own pack, will give the child over to your greatest enemy."
A growl trembled in Victoria's throat, and her entire body shook under the dual assault of fear and rage. The suggestion of betrayal from within her own pack filled her with disbelief to the core of her being. It was unthinkable. Gritting her teeth, she sought a solution, refusing to dwell on it. "How am I to prevent this?"
"We speak of what will come to pass," Verðandi said in a sympathetic tone.
"Your predictions are not carved in stone," Victoria said. Arguing with Fate was a foolish endeavor, but she refused to accept their prophecy.
The old woman, Urðr, smiled with a frightening gleam in her eyes. "Predictions, carved into the trunk of the World Tree, carved into the spiritual fabric of the world."
Stubborn determination settled over Victoria like armor. Her mother had taught her there was no absolute fate, just as there was no absolute free will. Life consisted of a wide range of possibilities between the two extremes. She refused to allow her daughter to die at three years of age. She would move worlds, alter fate, slay gods.
Whatever it took.
"Do you wish to save your child?" Skuld asked.
Victoria answered without thought. "Yes. I'll do anything. Tell me. Please."
"The final days are upon us," Verðandi said.
Skuld took over speaking. "To save your daughter, you will side with Loki against the Aesir. You will use your enchanted dagger to cut the binding of the great wolf Fenrir. You will be responsible for freeing the beast that kills Odin."
Victoria's stomach turned. Her head shook in automatic denial. "When the gods imprisoned Fenrir, my people pledged fealty to the Aesir. We have served them loyally ever since. Even when we were driven from the homeland, almost a millennium ago, we remained faithful. I will never cut Fenrir's bonds. To do so would end the world we live in and doom us all."
Skuld's gaze held steady. "You will."
Victoria snarled her denial. "No. I will never become the servant of the Trickster or willingly take part in bringing about Odin's death."

Skuld turned her head and pinned Victoria with one black eye that rolled in its socket like a liquid marble. "To save your daughter, you will."

Purely Professional Interview with Elia Winters #BDSM #EroticRomance


Today we have erotic romance author Elia Winters in the spotlight, chatting about what's in her nightstand (which is by far more interesting than her lack of a desk) and her spicy BDSM release, Purely Professional. Elia will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Interview questions for Elia Winters… .

Quick round:
Coffee, tea or…what’s your vice?
I’ve been a tea drinker all my life, but over the last few months I’ve finally developed a taste for coffee, and it’s a dangerous road. I asked for a Chemex for Christmas and I’m so excited to try it.

Favorite Movie:
I have a special place in my heart for Contact. It’s part of why I was an astronomy minor in college. (Advanced physics is why I didn’t keep an astronomy major in college.)

Favorite Color:
Pink. Really. I’ve been in denial about it but it’s true.

Favorite book/author:
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.

How do you feel about bacon?
I love it. There is no food that cannot be improved by the addition of either bacon or chocolate. Chocolate-covered bacon is the perfect food.


The REAL questions…
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a sex-positive feminist geek girl. I love gaming, especially tabletop games, and my husband and I host Dungeons and Dragons every week for our friends. I also love animals: we have a cat and a rescued mourning dove (who are never in the same room together). I can’t imagine my home without animals, although our Christmas tree would be in better shape if it weren’t for the cat.

What’s under your bed?
The fuzzy socks I kick off in the middle of the night. Some people might say “sex toys,” but those are too valuable to keep under the bed, and instead my entire nightstand is dedicated to them.

What comes first, plot or characters?
I come up with a very broad concept first, then develop characters. The detailed plot arises from the characters.

Pantser, plotter, or hybrid? Tell us about your writing process.
I’m a NaNoWriMo veteran of 14 years, and my writing process has changed quite a bit. I’m more productive as a plotter, and that’s how I still tend to work. Sometimes, like last month, my story goes off the rails and turns (for instance) from a police officer overcoming his social hangups to a doctor getting involved with an underground boxing circuit, and in those cases I just pants my way through it and revise it much, much later when I have some distance.

Oddest thing on your desk?
The oddest thing is that I don’t have a desk. I have a laptop and write on the couch. I’m a teacher, though, and on my desk at work I have a selection of miniatures including Castiel from Supernatural and the Alien from Alien.

What’s your most interesting writing quirk?
I put together a writing playlist and listen to it on repeat the entire time I’m writing a book. It’s not even usually songs that are related to the book, just songs I’m digging at the time. For this past November, I spent the whole month listening to my Appoggiatura playlist.

What’s your favorite thing about the genre you write in?
I love reading and writing hot sex. I’m amazed at how sex can be new every time, and how even though biologically it’s a limited number of moves, it can be written so many different ways.

What is the hardest thing about being an author?
Learning which feedback to ignore and which to listen to. Also, believing in yourself enough to pour endless hours of work into something and knowing it will eventually come together.

What’s the easiest thing about being an author?
I’m a little stumped by this question, because none of it ever feels easy. Okay, some days the writing is easy, but most of the time it feels like putting an octopus into a snowsuit. However, it’s so rewarding. There’s nothing like starting with a raw idea and taking it all the way through to a published novel. That makes everything worth it. So very little of the process is easy, but all of it is rewarding.

What do you wish someone had asked you for an interview question? 
I wish someone asked me about my hot-button issues! I’m passionate about feminism and sex-positivity. I hate woman-on-woman hate, this idea that we’re all in competition for men, and that we have to hate our guys’ exes and gossip behind each other’s backs. That stuff needs to stop, in literature and in life. Support each other. Stop the internalized misogyny. Stop writing bitchy women.

Tell us about your latest release!

Purely Professional started on a lark - I decided to write the BDSM erotic romance that I always wanted to read. I love reading BDSM, but lifestyle BDSM isn’t my favorite. I wanted to read about the casual practitioners, those who enjoy their kinky sex but don’t live as D/s partners all the time. The book grew from that idea. I’m excited to see people enjoying the book and hope they continue to do so!


~*~

BLURB for Purely Professional

Columnist Bridget Hartwell agrees to write about BDSM to impress her new executive editor at Sultry, the “sex-positive magazine for sex-positive women.” Unfortunately, it’s a topic she knows absolutely nothing about…but if she ever wants that promotion, she’ll need to learn the ropes, fast.

English professor Max Harlow is active in the Dom/sub scene, but only for casual play—he’s never found his ideal partner: a woman who is his equal, but sexually submissive. When he’s asked to explain the lifestyle to his cute but obviously inexperienced neighbor, Max is certain it’s best to approach it academically—to keep things purely professional.

Until Bridget’s first article is a huge hit, giving her the perfect excuse to delve deeper into the naturally submissive side of her sexuality. But as their encounters intensify and each of her boundaries is skillfully pushed, Bridget must decide what this all means… for her identity, her career, and, most importantly, her future with Max.

Purely Professional is available from:
and other ebook retailers.

~*~

 Excerpt for Purely Professional

“What about your fantasies?”

Bridget hesitated.

“What? What is it?” Catching her hesitation, Max looked up from the Scrabble board.

“It’s just...” She paused and took a swig of beer. “I’ve had a lot of crushes on men in positions of power. My volleyball coach back in high school, my internship coordinator in college, a few professors...” Realizing he was grinning, she blushed, remembering he was a professor. “Right. Anyway, I never acted on any of them.”

“And yet you complain that you date weak men.” He swirled the beer around in his bottle and held it up to the light, his gaze thoughtful and distant.

“Well, I don’t want some guy to boss me around.” To hide the discomfort she suddenly felt, Bridget looked down at the board. She played reach off the H in hinder and fumbled as she chose four new tiles.

“I think we both know that’s a lie.“ Max said smoothly, and he drank his beer. “I’ll bet you’re just afraid of what kind of woman you would be if you gave in to those urges.” He rubbed a tile between a thumb and forefinger, then set it back on his shelf. “I’ve been doing this a long time, Bridget. You responded today like a natural submissive. You liked more than just the sex. You liked all of it.”

She set down her beer and looked at him. “All right.” She tried not to sound defensive. “So what does that mean?”

“It doesn’t have to mean anything.” Max shrugged. “Maybe this afternoon, I just want to play some Scrabble with you and order a pizza. But when we’re done with all this experimenting, you’re going to have a lot to write about.”

Return to Corbin's Bend With Life's Unexpected Gifts #CorbinsBend

Today we're returning to Corbin's Bend with a look at Livia Grant's Life's Unexpected Gifts. There's a fun matching game and a giveaway at the end, so read on, and enjoy!

~Mia


Violence has been part of Hallie Boudreaux’s life for too long. Deciding all men are barbaric abusers, she’s once again on the run away from danger. Desperate to feel safe, if even for a few days, Hallie remembers the only time she had felt truly happy in the last seven years were the summers spent at her Aunt Gina and Uncle Adam’s. Taking a chance her aunt might take her in, Hallie points her dilapidated car towards Corbin’s Bend, praying she makes it there before her clunker takes it’s last gasp.

Troy Jackson can’t wait to surprise his sister on her 30th birthday. He’s recently moved back to Colorado to be closer to his only relative, Traci, a psychologist living in Corbin’s Bend. The surprise is on Troy when his normally conscientious sister runs amok on her big birthday proving that even intelligent, independent women still need the stern guidance of the men in their lives. Having grown up with loving parents who practiced the domestic discipline way of life, both Traci and Troy subscribe to the founding principles of the Corbin’s Bend community wholeheartedly.

Hallie’s family is thrilled to have her in Corbin’s Bend, but can Hallie come to terms with living in a community based on its endorsement of spanking, a practice Hallie sees as abuse. Can Traci’s counseling help her overcome her fear in order to accept her new life in Corbin’s Bend, or is it Traci’s brother who ultimately has the power to show Hallie that not all men are abusers?

Post a comment to let us know how many you got right.
The piles of snow lining the streets are melting in the vibrant December sunlight, making Hallie choose her steps carefully to avoid the slushy puddles encountered on her way to Traci’s. She needs to zigzag across several tree-lined streets to reach Spanking Loop. She’s about two blocks away when she hears the unmistakable sounds of a woman crying out. Several long seconds of silence have her wondering if she’d imagined the whole thing before the sound of a loud crack followed by an even louder wail of pain breaks the silence of Corbin’s Bend. Over and over in a steady rhythm, paddle... cry... paddle... cry...

Hallie stands rooted, unsure what to do. As the sounds of a harsh punishment filter down through an open window, she has to fight down unwanted and conflicting emotions. Her brain is furious for the poor woman being abused. She has to resist her natural urge to take action, although what action that might be escapes her as she stands on the sidewalk in Corbin’s Bend, Colorado, a community founded for people who believe in corporal punishment of submissive partners.

Her brain sees this issue as cut and dry. Spankings are violent and therefore they are abuse. Period. She tries valiantly to hold onto her anger as she remembers what the abuse had felt like at the hands of her step-father and more recently her ex-boyfriend, but having lived through true abuse, she begrudgingly acknowledges that what’s happening behind closed doors on this sunny morning feels different. Her last trace of anger fizzles away when the thrashing finishes and the clear sound of passionate sex replaces the pounding punishment.

Hallie resents the flutter she gets in her nether region every time she is confronted with anything having to do with corporal punishment. The flutter turns to pulsing sexual need as she eavesdrops on the couple crying out in joint passion. She is acutely aware of an imaginary ache centered surprisingly not in her sex, but at the tender place where her ass meets her thighs. With shame, she feels the tingling in her pussy as she imagines being bent over on the receiving end of a correction like is in progress in the house she’s standing in front of. As unsettling as it is to feel the cream gathering between her legs, her pulse heats up when she realizes it’s always Troy Jackson she imagines standing behind her, delivering the spanking. She reasons with herself that it’s only because she has a clear picture of what he looks like in action, but if she’s honest with herself, she knows that’s only part of the story.

She’s spent hours talking with Traci and Aunt Gina trying to understand why women would ever want to live in a place like Corbin’s Bend. She’d started with the intention of convincing them they were both crazy, but in one short week, their gentle reassurances about the values of the DD way of life already have her doubting her own conviction. Both women have assured her there is nothing wrong or even unusual with how she feels. While she still doesn’t understand how she can feel both dread and excitement at the thought of a punishment, she’s coming to terms that she can no longer deny at least to herself that the thoughts of a punishment excites her on some level. With the history of real violence in her past, these feelings are more than confusing.

Hallie resumes her walk to Traci’s, anxious to escape her inner turmoil. The second Traci opens the door, the emotions she had been holding in bubble up and Hallie finds herself with unwanted tears streaming down her face.

“Come on in and tell me what’s wrong.” Traci ushers her in.

“I’m just being silly. It’s nothing.” She has her coat off and they are headed to the kitchen. Hallie swipes at her tears, trying to downplay the effect of the walk over.

As always, Traci has a coffee waiting. “So, what happened?”

“It’s warm out there.” She takes a sip of her coffee to calm her nerves. Traci is confused.
“And that’s reason to cry?”

Hallie hedges. “Some people have their windows open.”

Instant recognition. “Oh boy. You walked over past Danelle and Carrie Ann’s.”
“Who are Danelle and Carrie Ann?”

“They are a couple here in town. Danelle is the HoH and let’s just say that Carrie Ann is disciplined... often... loudly. It’s kind of their thing.”

“What do you mean, their thing?”

“Exhibitionism. Everyone here is pretty open about the lifestyle, but most keep the details behind closed doors. Danelle and Carrie Ann are a little less private. Parents of young children who may not understand the dynamics of Corbin’s Bend yet have learned to steer their kids clear of their block when the weather is nice enough to have the windows open. You never know what you might hear.”

“So everyone knows about this and it’s okay?”

“Theirs is a consensual relationship, Hallie. Just like the outside world, no two relationships are exactly the same, but we are accepting of all types here in Corbin’s Bend. We have several couples who live a BDSM lifestyle and other couples who live a domestic discipline lifestyle, but don’t incorporate spanking, choosing to use other less severe punishments instead, and every flavor of DD in between. Each couple has to figure what it means for them on their own through communication.”

The women sit in silence for a while Hallie thinks things over. She finally breaks the silence. “I’m pretty sure Aunt Gina got spanked last night.” Hallie is embarrassed, choosing to look at her coffee mug instead of her new friend and therapist.

“What makes you say that? Did you hear the punishment?”

“Not really. I could just tell at dinner Uncle Adam was not happy about something when he got home and they excused themselves right after dinner to go up to their bedroom, which was out of the ordinary. They were gone over an hour and when they came back down, I could tell Aunt Gina had been crying and she seemed to wiggle a lot while she was sitting watching TV with us.”

Trained For Seduction #Free For A Limited Time! #TWRP #eroticromance #mfm #menage #bdsm

Hi gang! Not sure how much longer this is free, but Spy Games: Trained for Seduction is free in all e-formats for a limited time on The Wild Rose Press website! This is book one in the Spy Games series and was nominated for a Reader's Choice Award in 2013.

Blurb For Spy Games: Trained for Seduction...
Emma Walters didn't choose to be a spy, but when her crazy father was caught selling bombs to the wrong people, she was given a choice--become a spy or rot in jail. Her exciting new life as agent Kate Wells becomes more so when she discovers her new boss is the agent--undercover and investigating her father at the time--who took her to third base. Emma is already half in love with the dark and dangerous Chase Sanders. Kate wants nothing more than for him to finish what he started, but he's the devil incarnate. And one doesn't make deals or fall in love with the devil.

If someone had told Chase he'd fall in love with a certain virgin when he was on his last mission, he would have shot them dead, sniper style. She was nothing more than collateral damage, damn it. But watching the sexy new spy morph into a bombshell killing machine is too much to bear. So when the powers that be command him to train her in the art of seduction for her first--and possibly last--mission, he's scared witless. Making love to Kate means preparing her for sex with another man.

Somehow, Chase has to find a way to get Kate in--and out--of her mission without dying. And without falling in love.

Cursed: Brides of the Kindred 13
by Evangeline Anderson

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB for Cursed: Brides of the Kindred 13
 
A fierce warrior, forced to feel the agony of others.

A girl with a past full of pain caused by his kind.

When the two of them go undercover on a dangerous mission will they bond?

Or are they Cursed to be apart forever?
  



~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  
Excerpt of CursedBrides of the Kindred 13

“What is wrong with the female?” the male face boomed. The creature strode towards them, glaring at Charlie.

She backed away—all she could see was the two-faced monster that had terrified her so long ago. The recurring dream so dark and horrifying it made her afraid to go to sleep unless her sister was right there beside her. But Missy was gone now…had been gone for years…

Suddenly her back bumped into something hard and warm. She looked up to see Stavros standing behind her, looking down at her with obvious concern.

“Charlotte?” he said softly. “Are you well?”

“I…I…” The old fear robbed her of speech and she could only shake her head.
A sudden impulse struck her—the desperate urge to turn and bury her face in his broad, bare chest—to seek safety and shelter in his arms until the nightmare was past. He was so big and strong…clearly he could keep her safe!

Somehow she managed not to do it. She hung onto her dignity by a thread and stood her ground. But she didn’t try to shake off his hands when he placed them firmly on her shoulders. Instead, she huddled back against him, feeling his big body like a comforting wall, radiating heat and safety that surrounded her.

“Well?” The monster was getting closer and closer. Charlie couldn’t bear to look anymore—she closed her eyes.

“Step back.” Stavros’s voice was soft but it had an edge of steel in it. Pressed as she was against him, Charlie could feel it rumble through her entire body.

There was a little gasp from Nar’sa. “You must not speak so to a Joined One!”

“I will speak however I feel necessary,” Stav growled. “You are distressing my mate. Now step back.”
