Happy Hump Day, people!

I have a stellar sketch to share with you today! This wonderful piece was created by the very talented artist, Takeia Marie.


For those of you who have read The Dragon Queen Series, you know this sassy chick is Sharayna “Rayne” Piers, the all-powerful Dragon Queen. Takeia managed to expose Rayne’s saucy demeanor and hidden strength in this sketch.

Isn’t this beautiful?

This feeds my desire to see the Dragon Queen series as a graphic novel, or manga. 😉

Stay tuned! I have an absolutely wicked drawing of Maurisio Bithanos, also created by Takeia Marie, to share with you later. 😉

Bare your throat, my lovelies.

This dark fantasy series will suck your passions and leave you anxious for more.

Bitten by #ParanormalRomance Book Review on Silent Screams #InterracialRomance

SilentScreams2This month is full of awesomeness because I have yet another great review to share with you guys. This one was written by Emi Lia at Bitten by Paranormal Romance Book Reviews for the first book in The Dragon Queen Series, SILENT SCREAMS.

This review brought smile to my face that cannot be wiped away. My favorite line is this:

“I’m a little torn on which one I like best between Demetri and his brother Maurisio, but almost every single male character is sexy as hell and absolutely delicious.”

*giggle* You’re not alone, Emi. I find myself torn as well.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic review! 😀 I hope you love the next installment just as much, if not more. 😉

Silent Screams Excerpt

Combined with the other scents wafting through the breeze, a familiar aroma crept into her senses. She stopped and drew in the air circulating around her. A throaty moan heaved out of her on exhale. Yeah, it was there―that same sexy scent she picked up on after the concert last night. “Oh, my God, where is that smell coming from?”

“What smell, Sharayna?” Narri rushed out.

Rayne whipped her head back and forth, eyeing every person that passed her by as the scent became stronger. “Ooo ma, I’mma holla at you later. I gotta find out what that is.” Before Narri could get into one of her rant sessions, Rayne disconnected.

The erratic pounding beneath her chest had her pulse racing. Her body felt strange. A static charge started at her head and worked its way down to her toes. In waves, it rolled back up her body and left the center of her back pulsating. “What the hell…?”

Bewildered, Rayne reached back, under her shirt, and brushed her fingers over her dragon tattoo. She vividly remembered when she got it. It was years ago in Hong Kong. On that day, she was a little tipsy, and feeling mighty damn adventurous.

As she stroked her tatted flesh, it thumped against her fingers like a heartbeat. Weird!

In the thick of her confusion, something really freaky happened. Time slowed down. Rayne turned in a circle, watching everything in motion drag to a sluggish pace. After that, everything went mute. She couldn’t hear the sounds of cars driving by, or the chatter of the people walking along the strip, who literally moved in slow motion as they sauntered by.

It was like being caught up in some bizarre dream.

A presence… She felt a presence that made her insides flutter. She’d felt this presence before, in her mind. Could it be him? Demetri? Had he actually found her?

Nervously, she clutched the end of her shirt and scanned the area for just a glimpse of him. No one stood out. No one even looked her way. Was he teasing her, or was her mind truly playing tricks on her? “That’s it, make me even crazier than I already am,” she murmured.

Along the side of the street, a cab pulled up next to her. The driver, a middle aged man with a cropped haircut and a broad smile, stepped out of the car. He hurried around the vehicle to where she stood and opened the back door. Sweeping his hand through the air, he gestured for her to enter.

Without asking any questions, she slid into the cab.

It was a quiet ten minute ride to the beach. Still smiling, the driver helped her out, and then waved for her to follow him.

Her Adidas’ rubber soles dug into the sand as they trudged along the deserted beach.

Off in the horizon, a pale pink tint from the moon radiated over the small waves in the ocean and highlighted the grains of sand. They sparkled under her appraisal like a trillion tiny diamonds in the spotlight.

The driver led her to a small gazebo near the shore. Sheer red curtains covered the openings. Through the transparent fabric, she saw a chaise lounge sitting in the center of the enclosure. On the side, was a tall bucket filled with ice, chilling a large bottle. Probably wine. Long metal torches on either side of the shelter added to the glow already cast from the moon above.

“This is lovely, but why’d you bring me out…?” She turned to find the driver gone. “Ohh-kay, Houdini, where’d ya’ go?”

A gentle breeze blew ripples over the water and pushed the curtains back, as if to welcome her into the cozy enclosure.

Swallowing hard, she moved forward.

A deep croon brushed the side of her neck. “Do you approve?”

Startled, she whirled around and tumbled backwards. The heel of her shoe dipped into a patch of soft sand and she lost her balance.

A pair of hands caught her by the arms. She was jerked upright and drawn against a hard masculine body.

Her breath came out in short spurts as his arms circled her waist. “Oh Gawd,” was all she could whimper.

Deathly afraid to look up into his face, she clutched the lapels of his jacket and squeezed her eyes shut. Panic picked at her nerves. Suddenly, she realized she was holding her breath.

Breathe, Rayne. Breathe.

This was no dream, or vision. This was actually happening. He’s here! He’s really here!

The enticing scent that made her horny as all hell swirled around her in teasing ribbons of ecstasy. She couldn’t help but breathe him in with every inhale.

His long fingers slipped beneath her chin and tilted her face upward. “At your request, I am here.”

She opened her eyes and her next breath got caught in her throat. Whoa!

Jet black, wavy hair draped his broad shoulders, and framed his porcelain face. Mid-high cheekbones and a narrow-bridged nose added to the perfection of his features. Accented by a fan of thick black lashes, bright, exotic eyes that shimmered like the ocean were fixed on her.

Plainly put, this man was crazy hawt, a real stunner. Never in her life had she seen a man, or woman, so incredibly beautiful. He was unreal.

Just looking at him made every muscle in her body tingle, every nerve quiver and her lady needs increase. “Demetri?” she whispered, giving into the shudders darting up and down her spine.

His plush lips curved up into a sexy smirk, enhancing his beauty as he slowly removed her shades. “Hello, Angel.”

Silent Screams will be released in print on May 17th 2013

Creating Dominique & Indigo

One again my girl, Takeia Dunlop created a stunning drawing. This one is of 2 of my favorite characters from The Dragon Queen Series – Priestess Indigo and Priestess Dominique, two powerful magic weavers. They’re sassy, beautiful, candid and very sexual. Not only are coven sisters destined to protect the dragon queen, they are lovers in every sense of the word. This image displayed the relationship between them beautifully.

*applause* Brava Takeia!

Priestess Dominique & Priestess Indigo Inked

The color master, BAD ASS Kyle Chaney, took it to another level with his colors. He created a video showing the color process, including the shading and lighting. Kyle has done many projects for me and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to watch him work. Well, it’s just as amazing as I thought it would be. Check it out.

He even threw in some Johnny Cash for your listening pleasure. 😀

Takeia and Kyle, you two are forever putting a smile on my face, and I hope to continue this wonderful professional relationship with you. 🙂

Sexy pic, isn’t it? 😉

Flash Fiction Friday #10 ~ Houseguest

Curtis stood in the doorway of his bedroom, convinced he had wandered into a dream. “Is this forreal…?”

His wife, Debra, had a woman pinned beneath her. She rolled her groin against the woman’s pussy. They moaned in unison.

He blinked a few times, thinking at any moment he would awaken.

Debra worked her way down her body, nibbling and kissing in a teasing manner. Then she planted her face right between her thighs, where she began to feast.

“Are you just gonna stand there?” Debra lifted her head and smiled. “Or come and have a taste of our houseguest?”

Renee’s Journey into Blood & Sex

Happy Hump Day friends!

I know this is the day where I tantalize your naughty desires with sexy pics and words of seduction, but for today, we’re going to do something a little different. Everybody on board with that?

Oh c’mon now, don’t be like that. It’ll be fun, I promise. 😀

Today my best chica, Renee Michaels will be taking over my blog. Don’t get me wrong, I love to bring out the inner freak in all of you and look forward to it each week, but the novel she just released has to be put on blast because it’s an amazing read and sexy as all get out. She’s super excited to share it with you.

Don’t be shy. Leave her a comment and show her some love. Hugs to you all!

Renee Michaels’ Journey into Blood and Sex

Inspiration can come from anywhere. A word, an off-hand comment, or in the case of my latest release, BLOOD AND SEX, a submission call can plant an idea in my head and I will run with it.

The request was for a very short story about lesbian vampires. The idea sparked my interest and I really wanted to create a story with this premise.

Now, I had never written an F/F piece and I was a little bit daunted. I tend to be a little long winded. But, if I couldn’t stretch or restrain myself from falling into my old habits, there was no point in perusing this mad journey I’ve embarked on.

Of course, it had to be sexy. Got that down pat, or so I would like to think. I usually like my characters’ encounters to start out sensual, and then veer into the erotic. However, this story had a word limit and I had to turn up the heat very fast.

Writing this tale forced me to choose my words very carefully. I had to make every one count. It became an exercise for me, a frustrating and satisfying exercise. It helped me hone my skills a little more. I let go of superfluous words and ideas. I’d like to think I’ll take what I learned and use it for future works. The result of all the frustration and hair pulling was Blood and Sex, just released by Secret Craving Publishing. It’s a spicy love affair between two very strong women.

A male vamp attacks Mia, my main character. She has to get the toxins coursing through her blood removed by another vamp. She has a ritual to perform and she can’t carry the taint of a vampire’s bite. To accomplish this, she must provide blood and sex, but there is a catch. She has to technically, remain a virgin. She seeks out Ryssa, and sparks fly. I’ve created a new society of vamps, which I hope will lead into a new series. I really love the characters in this short and I’m dying to play with them again.

Writing is a wonderful obsession for me. It’s hard work but when a story comes together, the satisfaction is indescribable.

To every writer out there, all the best to you and yours for the season. I wish you many ideas and sales in your Christmas stockings.

Here’s a small sample of Blood and Sex:

Ryssa found the simple unconscious action as provocative as a blatant invitation. Blood and sex kept the bloodlust at bay until she found a life partner who’d quench her raging needs with the purity of love. In the meantime, she’d have to slake her lusts on the willing and the needy.

Leaning forward, she laved at the damp spot Mia had just licked. Sweetness flooded Ryssa’s taste buds. She couldn’t remember how long since anything but the metallic taste of blood aroused her. Greedy to savor the long-denied flavors, she dipped her tongue into Mia’s mouth. She needed to lay herself open to everything Ryssa offered and demanded for the cleansing to work.

I would like to express my gratitude to Yvonne for having me on her blog. Her constant support has been invaluable, even though she kicks my behind on occasion for slacking off.

Thank you again.
