#MidWeekTease and... (read it and see :) )

I honestly had no idea what I was going to tease you with. I feel like I've bored you all senseless with same old same old lately.

So instead of risking total alienation, I give you this...

God almighty, whatever had she been drinking?
Hold on… Andie tried to gather her scattered wits. The last thing she remembered was wanting a glass of water or something. But surely that wouldn’t mean her mouth tasted like the floor of a budgie cage? Not that she’d ever licked one, but it was the most apt description Andie could think of. Hell, she ached and she was thirsty. Water, for the love of god, I need water. Okay, get up and get on with it.
She tried to roll to one side and a rock stopped her.
A rock? I don’t have rocks indoors, just in the rockery. That almost made her snigger. Almost. What on earth had happened to her bed? Her soft mattress topper and feather pillows? Why was she sleeping on the ground? She didn’t do camping. Not since she’d taken part in an overnight hike for her Duke of Edinburgh award badge and been bitten all over her bum to hell and back by midges, when she’d slid out of the tent to go for a pee.
Her bladder told her it was pee time again. Like now.
Oh god what if I am outside and there’s midges? Not in December surely? There was nothing for it. To go to the loo was imperative or she’d wet herself. Andie counted to three and tried to sit up.
She couldn’t. Her hands were tied behind her back and her ankles caught together. Andie jerked them around experimentally. About two inches of give in her hands, an inch or so more between her ankles.
What the? Her head thumped in time to her heartbeat. Too fast and too loudly. Oh god, am I dead and this is retribution for some long forgotten misdeed? Open your eyes, eejit. Look around, then if I can’t see, panic.
Okay, I can do it. One, two… She opened her eyes and squinted in the semi-darkness. She was alive, even if she had no idea where.  Definitely not outside, because she could see the faint outline of a window high up in what she guessed was a wall. A barred window. “What the hell?”  
“Yeah, what the fucking…” The voice was deep, husky and sadly well known.

Oh god I am dead and it is bloody retribution. Why else would I be imagining him? Or I’m in a nightmare. That book I read the other night was all too real. They’ve come to take me away. She began to wriggle harder, desperate to find out why she couldn’t move. That bloody rock. Her ass was hard up against it and… shit! Now she was dreaming of cock-shaped rocks. That was so not fair.

Start the week with The Alpha's Secret Mate From the fabulous Ravenna Tate

What better way to make your day?

The lovely Ravenna has joined me to tell you about her latest book

Blood Moon Lynx 3

***Click HERE to purchase directly from Evernight Publishing***


The last thing Makenna expected when she followed the fanatical group from her village into the woods, with the intention of spying on them, was to find her mate. A blood moon lynx from the very village rumored to have caused untold trouble for her own people, no less. She should run again, as far away as possible, but she can’t. A mate is a mate, after all, and this man is hers. No doubt about it.

Stone Rockwell has kept his mate a secret in order to protect her and his friends from further trouble, until his world is turned upside down soon after mating with the captivating leopard. The reason she fled her village is more complicated than he first realized, and Makenna’s true ancestry is tied to an ancient legend. When Makenna’s life is threatened, Stone may have to lose his own to save hers.


Shivers ran up and down her spine as they ripped at each other’s clothes, stopping only to devour each other’s mouths in kisses so molten, she expected the sofa to catch on fire. As Stone tossed her shoes across the room, something fell to the floor and shattered, but Makenna didn’t bother looking around to see what it was. She was lost in the heady sensations of her mate’s hands and mouth on her body, and nothing else was allowed inside her thoughts.

“Try not to shift,” he said, sliding his tongue up one leg then the other. He stopped short of licking her pussy, which made Makenna crazy with desire.

“I can’t help it.”

“Yes, you can.”

She grasped his hair and moaned loudly when he brushed his fingers at the junctures of each thigh and the skin next to her labia. This was torture. All she wanted was his dick inside her. “Stone … please!”

A soft chuckle made her heart race. “This is the first time we’ve been completely alone for weeks. We’re taking our time, my love.”

So, it did bother him that everyone in the Benedict house could hear them. She hadn’t realized that until right now. “It’s so hard for me to wait, Stone.”

Fluttery kisses covered the insides of her thighs. His breath was so hot against her skin. Makenna’s clit throbbed now, and all he’d have to do was touch her and she’d climax. No doubt about it.

“You’re worth the wait, my love.” One quick lick up her wet slit gave her hope, but before she could do so much as moan, he moved higher and grasped her breasts. Makenna wrapped her arms and legs around him as he gently bit her nipples, covering them with licks in between the nibbles.

“I can’t get enough of you.”

“I hope you never do.”

The tender look he gave her sent fresh wetness to her pussy. “Never. You’re my life, Makenna. I will want you forever. I will love you forever.”

She pulled his face closer and kissed him, shoving her tongue into his mouth as desire spread through her body like a wildfire. His cock was so huge now, rubbing her clit each time he moved. Makenna couldn’t wait any longer. She shifted a bit further, growled deep in her throat, and turned them over so she was on top.

Strong laughter filled the space between them, and he cupped her face. “I love it when you take charge like this. You’re so damn sexy.”

“I have to have you. Now.” She rose up enough to sheath his cock with her pussy, crying out as he released her face to grasp her hips instead.

“Then have me, love. All of me.”

He moved her up and down roughly, grunting and growling as he did. Each pass massaged her clit in exactly the right way, and when her orgasm came, it was so intense Makenna wasn’t sure she could keep breathing.

Before it ended, Stone moved her off him and rolled her onto her stomach. He settled himself between her legs and bent down, licking her asshole. “I’m going to fuck you in every hole. You want me, you’ll take me. Everywhere.”

“Oh, God!” She cried out in ecstasy when he slid two fingers into her puckered hole, gently stretching the walls. Nothing they’d done so far had been this raw and dirty, but she loved it. She wanted more. She wanted everything he had to give her.

When he gently slid his cock into her asshole, Makenna could do nothing but lie there while he fucked her. Stone slipped a hand underneath and massaged her clit, prolonging her climax. “Oh, Makenna! Fucking you is unlike anything in the world!”

The orgasm crested again when he licked the wound on her neck, and now her moans turned to whimpers as wave after wave of delicious pleasure washed over her. When he finally came, she was still lost in the headiness of being completely his. She’d totally given herself to him, and nothing anyone said or did could change that.

The hell with what awaited them back in the village. They’d simply stay here for the rest of their lives

Sunday, 27 November 2016 bit sweaty and damp...

...and that's just the weather...

Hello and welcome to #SexySnippets. Seven sentences to tease and titillate (I hope). As I've been to Hong Kong, (and my diary reminded me) and sniggered when I did the walk my hero and heroine do, (but didn't  nip off for a bit of you know what) I had to do my #SexySnippets from there

Debra stood on tiptoe to kiss him and as soon as her lips touched his, she felt the familiar clit tingling, muscle clenching sensations that she experienced every time they touched. 

Damned if he didn’t send her bones to jelly and make her mouth water. The brief hard clench of her ass as he returned the kiss made her moan—she moaned again as his grip lessened—and he ended the kiss and the ass-hold.

“You, my love, will have us arrested if we’re not careful.” Braam was breathing heavily as he ran his hand through his short hair. “One touch and I forget where we are. We could be in the middle of a crowd at a major sporting event and I’d still lose track of anything but you.” 

Hong Kong Heat is available as an eBook from all the usual places, and in print from Totally Bound and Amazon etc.

Thursday treat. I have a visitor N J Young brings us Love with a Price...

(Just had to lead with this fantastic banner)

Explosive Desire (Love With a Price, #4)

A stalker has his sights set on Harper... Exclusive excerpt from Explosive Desire by @neilarocks #suspense #romance #MF @evernightpub
Thank you so much for having me on your blog. I’m very excited to share Explosive Desire with your readers. Although it is book four in my Love With a Price series, all of my books are written so they can be enjoyed as stand-alone novels, so even if you haven’t read the previous books, don’t let that deter you. Luke Price is my hottest hero yet, and this is the first book in my Love With a Price series that is a suspense!

Explosive Desire
Love With a Price, Book 4
By: N.J. Young
Genre: M/F Contemporary, Suspense, Erotic Romance, Rubenesque, BDSM
Release Date: November 3, 2016
Cover Artist: Jay Aheer

A stalker has set his sights on Harper and will stop at nothing to make her his…

Finding love is the last thing on Luke Price’s mind as he leads his construction crew to complete the new wing of Oakville Hospital. But he can’t deny his feelings when Dr. Harper Love walks into his life. Lacking the sociability of his younger siblings, Luke doesn’t think a woman like Harper would ever want an introvert like him. But he puts his skepticism on hold when he discovers that Harper has become the victim of a stalker. Above all else, Luke vows to protect the woman he cares about.

When Dr. Harper Love moves to Oakville, she doesn’t expect to find a network of new friends, a man who captures her heart, and certainly not a stalker who watches her every move. When she begins receiving menacing notes at the hospital where she works, it soon becomes clear that the threats are no prank. Harper finds herself turning to Luke Price, and his protective instincts go on high alert. Will his heart be able to stand losing Harper? Or can he figure out who the stalker is and keep the woman he loves safe?

About N.J. Young
I'm a Midwestern girl and a lover of coffee, live music, and horror movies, not necessarily in that order.
I've been writing all my life, and I honestly can't remember a time when I wanted to do anything but write. After many years spent suffering the trials of corporate America and writing about everything from financial risk management to software user manuals to website copy about radiators (sadly, I'm not kidding), I decided take the plunge and start writing books.
I love a good love story with super hot alpha males, strong heroines, a little humor, and a lot of suspense. Sprinkle in some sexual fantasies and a few BDSM aspects, and Boom! These are only a few of the themes you'll find in my books.

When I'm not writing, I'm probably at Starbucks, or fighting evil with the help of my husband, two children, and our houseful of animals.

Explosive Desire (Love With a Price, #4) Excerpt
 Look at me.” When she didn’t respond, he deepened his voice. “Harper, look at me. Now.”

She turned her head to look at him with weary blue eyes. Fuck, he hated that she looked so broken. He wanted to fix her. Or at least make her forget all the pain and potential danger right outside the door.

He opened his mouth to speak, but she stopped him with a shake of her head. “Please don’t. Don’t say it’s going to be okay. Don’t tell me there’s nothing to worry about, and they’re going to catch this guy.” She took a shaky breath. “I know everyone at your mom’s was just trying to help, trying to make me feel better.” Her fingers absently played along his. “I just don’t want you to lie to me.” She looked down at their hands.

Her words nearly broke him. He raised a hand to her cheek and brushed aside her blonde curls to cup her face and tilt it up to him. “I’ll never lie to you, Harper. Not ever. I can’t even imagine how violated you must be feeling right now. What this psycho is doing to you makes me sick to my stomach. But I can make you one promise. I will not let anything happen to you, do you understand me? I’ll die before I ever let anyone hurt you.”

Her eyes filled, and she tried to look away, but he held her face steady. “No. Look at me.” She raised her eyes again, and a tear spilled over. Luke gently wiped it away with his thumb then leaned in to press his lips against her forehead. He pulled back to look into her face. “You don’t have to be afraid, Pretty, not of me.” He brushed away another tear and stroked the back of his knuckles along her jaw. “I’m the man you can trust. I’m the man you can depend on. And I’m not going anywhere.”

Luke…” She said his name on a whisper as the pad of his thumb stroked gently over her bottom lip. Tentatively, her tongue snaked out to lick his thumb. He stilled as her soft wetness played over the tip of his thumb. Harper searched his face as if she were waiting to see if he would pull away. When he didn’t, she sucked his thumb into her mouth.

Heat flared through Luke, and his arousal ratcheted up to eleven.

Get it together, Price. She’s vulnerable. You can’t take advantage of her.

Harper…” He should tell her this wasn’t a good idea. When he made love to her, he wanted it to be because she needed him as much as he needed her, not because she was using him as a distraction. But when she raised her face to his and leaned in, he couldn’t deny her, couldn’t deny himself.

The second their lips met, all semblance of reasoning slipped away. The only thing in his head was her.
