Message to the Readers Dec ’20

We’re almost over the hump, fam. A new year is just a couple weeks away. I hope and pray 2021 is a lot nicer to us than 2020 was because 2020 was a bully. And no one likes bullies.

If you need a break from this twisted reality we find ourselves living in, make sure to grab yourself a copy of Christmas Delights. It’s a sultry tale, rife with raunchy sex. And the best part, Covid is nowhere to be found. Like many of my other stories, a disclaimer is necessary. Christmas Delights is not suited for the faint of heart. However, if you can take the heat, I believe it will be an enjoyable read for you.

Many of you who follow me know that Christmas Delights is a re-release. When I first wrote this story some years ago, I published it through a Canadian publishing house. Like most manuscripts issued to a traditional pub, it was picked apart. I barely recognized my own story towards the end. I omitted 90% of the really juicy scenes per my editor’s request. I didn’t question it at the time because I was also working on the Dragon Queen series, which had my full attention. When Christmas Delights was published, I wasn’t as happy as I should’ve been because I felt like I had cheated the readers.

I delivered a story with stilted character interaction and, worst of all, tamed love scenes. That wasn’t me. I didn’t care for the cover much either. But there wasn’t much I could do about that since the director had the last say on my projects. Despite that, most readers enjoyed it. I found out later, the good stuff was taken out so the story could appeal to a broader audience, which it did. But still…I felt weird about it. What’s the point of being an erotic romance writer if I can’t let my freak flag fly.

I know not everyone can relate to certain verbiage, and sometimes my style of writing can boggle the mind, but it’s a piece of me. And I enjoy sharing that piece with the world. I told myself, if I ever got my story back, I would restore it to its original smuttiness. And that’s exactly what I did. Everything the editor told me to take out was put back in. I even added more heat. Because, why not?

With all that said, I hope you enjoy the story Christmas Delights. If you do, please take a moment to post a review and even spread the word. I appreciate you reading this, and I most certainly appreciate your support.

Happy Reading!

Hot Tub Desires Has A New Look!

I enjoyed the original look, and no, there was nothing wrong with it. I just thought it was time for a change. And change is good, especially in today’s climate.

With that said, Hot Tub Desires has a NEW LOOK.

BEHOLD!

Courtney has had her eye on the gym’s top fitness instructor for months. He’s popular with the ladies, so she’s only been able to watch him from a distance.

What she doesn’t know is, he’s been watching her too.

Who said going to the gym was a waste of time? 

If you haven’t scooped it up yet, it’s still available, and best of all, it’s FREE!

Scattered Flames ~ The Dragon Queen Series

Sacrifice

Lost in a sea of pleasure, Imrie cried out, never wanting the sensation to end. Whatever he desires of me, I will do it. She turned her head, allowing him to drink freely.

Ukemi appeared in the doorway.

Imrie went rigid.

Thankfully, the vision and blood lust had Lord Lucius distracted, or for lack of a better word, occupied. Had he seen Ukemi, he would’ve reacted.

“Ukemi, you shouldn’t be here! If he sees you…”

With her sweet face bunched in disappointment, she shook her head. “You’re no better than your husband. You sold your soul and body to the devil just to trap the dragon queen, and now he owns you.”

“No my dear girl, I sold my soul and body to the devil so you wouldn’t have to. Now please, return to your quarters before he senses you.”

Sex, Drugs, Rock n’ Roll… and Murder

Toshiro Matsuda, a tenacious Japanese inspector, is on the hunt for a serial killer who has left a trail of bodies across the globe. The latest victim was slashed backstage during a Scorpion Tail concert in a small town in Georgia.

The indie band’s wild, rebellious sound and dark lyrics catches Toshiro’s attention. He delves into the band members’ sordid pasts, and discovers that they are linked to the most recent victim.

MonaLisa–aka Queen Sting–the lead singer, hatches a plan to distract the inspector in order to protect her band brothers. In a turn of events, she becomes attracted to him. She wants to give in, but if she acts on her desire, Toshiro may uncover the secrets she keeps, and that will put her band at risk.

Toshiro was never one to fall for seduction, but there is something about the sassy rock star that intrigues him. However, he is not the only one who is fixated on her.

Will Toshiro be able to catch the killer, before MonaLisa is added to the kill list?

Scorpion Tail Excerpt

Smoke and Strawberries

“What do you have over these cops? Have you given favors to them all? Even the chief? Is that why you carry on like you own the place?”

MonaLisa swirled around and cocked her head to the side. “Hold up. Did you just call me a whore?”

Toshiro shrugged. “If the shoe fits…”

The smile she offered was full of malice. “Ooo, what a trashy prince you are. You’re just begging for my attention, aren’t you? Well you got it. Consider yourself on my radar.”

On her radar? Is that a threat? In a flash, he was in her face. With his hand braced against the wall behind her and the other wrapped around her arm, he pinned her to the building. Despite the position he had her in, she continued to puff away on her cancer stick, which in turn, infuriated him further.

Toshiro snatched the cigarette from between her lips, threw it on the ground and stomped on it. Noses inches apart, he breathed in her aroma. She smelled of smoke and strawberries. The combination disturbed him, more so because it also aroused him. She confused his senses, made him feel things he wasn’t quite sure of. This close, he could see the specks of gold lining her chocolate brown irises. They shimmered like stars. Aside from her face, it was one of the prettiest things he’d ever seen.

What are you doing, Toshiro?

He swallowed the lump easing up his throat. “After I catch my perp, I’m going to make it my business to bring you and your band of thugs down.”

“Is that right?” Her eyelids fluttered, her breathing wavered. “A’ight then.” She flicked her tongue out and swept it over his lips. “Game on, Mah-soo-dah.”

He scrambled back, nearly falling over the hood of a police cruiser. A heatwave rushed over him and settled in his groin. Wiping at his mouth with the back of his hand, he glared at her. His lips quivered, his cock throbbed.

She released a deep, sultry laugh. “Ohh, you’re just too easy. Gotta toughen up if you’re gonna pick fights with me. Catch ya’ later.” Her swaying rear end taunted him as she headed for the shiny royal blue and white antique vehicle.

If he wasn’t mistaken, it was a Plymouth Fury. Couldn’t give her credit for lady-like behavior, but at least she had good taste in cars.

She spun around on a playful twirl and dared to light another cigarette. “Just remember, Inspector Mah-soo-dah…” She took a draw from the end and winked at him. “When you bust, I’ll bust harder.”

His chest drew so tight he could hardly breathe. What was pure rage manifested into something explosive, something he couldn’t control. “That is it!” As his feet carried him forward, his mind went blank.

Saturday Teaser 2 #ScorpionTail #FadeToBlack #ASMSG #ComingSoon

A snippet from SCORPION TAIL (Fade To Black) **COMING SOON**

ScorpionTail_fbcover

Alicia lumbered into the kitchen, yanked the fridge open and grabbed a bottle of milk. The light within cast a glow over the round table by the window. The gleam brought a dark figure into view. At first, it looked like a harmless shadow.

But then, it moved.

Her heart lunged up into her throat. Gasping, she scurried backwards. The bottle fell from her grip and cold liquid splashed over her feet.

A deep sigh-filled exhale came from the shadow. With it, a smoky scent drifted by her nose.

Eyes glued on the intruder, she inched over to the wall and flipped the switch. The single ceiling light flickered on. Her mouth went dry and her body tensed.

Seated at the table, dressed in all black, was Becca. Legs crossed, he gazed out the open kitchen window as he puffed away on a cigarette. His long hair concealed the sides of his face, making him appear as nothing more than a silhouette. Black leather gloves covered his hands, which meant one thing. He didn’t want to leave any fingerprints.

Gun. She had it hidden in the cabinet above the fridge. How could she get to it, without sparking his suspicions? “How did you get in here?” Stupid question, but it was the only thing she could think to say at the moment. She’d never been this scared in her life. His presence alone shook her to the core. “Are… are you here kill me?”

He breathed out a stream of smoke, then finally turned and fixed those eerie, bright on her. “That’s entirely up to you.” Using his foot, he pushed the chair adjacent from him out from the table. “Have a seat.”
