Time for a Break

zsmgnjyrhrm-nelly-volkovich

The last six weeks have been full of family stuff, which has taken up much of my time, and today, hubby and I are going on holiday for a much needed break.

While I’m away I have several releases. The first two books in my Alien Encounter series – Janaya and Hinekiri  will become available. Last Wish, a paranormal story about a genie will also go live. All three stories are rereleases with new covers.

Oh, and a reminder – Captured & Seduced, the first book in my House of the Cat series is still free, so grab your copy from your favorite online retailer.

Have a wonderful month.

Happy reading,

Lost with Leo: Fear of Spiders!

My Sexy Saturday

The theme this week is “I Got You Babe.” I have to admit that I didn’t have the slightest idea of what to do with the topic. After much deep thought, I decided to go with an excerpt from my latest release, Lost With Leo.

Leo, the hero of this novel, is a leopard shifter, and he’s become entangled with a nasty villain—a female from the Spiderus race.

Fear.

It was a tight band around his chest, restricting his breathing until it felt as if each breath emerged and entered through a straw.

The mansion came into sight, and each inhalation sawed into his lungs. He forced his tense limbs to carry him to the gates, to ring the bell for entrance. A voice squawked from a concealed speaker, and Leo backed away in quick, jerky steps, the flight response kicking in big time. Run. Run. Run!

Yet his promise to honor a contract kept his feet firm, and he stated his business in a steady voice. “Leo Mitchell to see Iseult Orna.”

The gates bearing the crest of a spider parted and slid back with nary a sound to allow him entrance to Spiderus Mansion. Leo strode up the driveway, past the gardens, to where a petite woman waited for him. A brown mouse with brown hair, brown eyes and a secretive nature. She looked as if she wasn’t capable of spitting at a fly, let alone hurting one. He knew better.

A snarl rumbled up his throat, and if he could’ve shot flames with his eyes, she’d be burning in hell.

Betrys Torin.

Lost with Leo_200x300

BLURB:

Leo Mitchell wants to contribute to the operating expenses of the new family-run Middlemarch resort, which specializes in capture fantasies for female guests. Betrys Torins offers what Leo thinks is a wonderful opportunity, but in reality is potentially deadly. He hungers for revenge. A capture might be the perfect payback…

In order to protect her son, Betrys must procure men for her alien employer Iseult Orna. She hates her job and loathes the guilt she feels at trapping the sexy Leo into signing an irrevocable contract. Even worse, she has started dream walking and sharing passionate sex with the gorgeous man. She’s smitten, yet knows they have no future, because when Iseult catches up with Leo, he’ll die.

Inside scoop: Iseult’s appetites for men are extreme. Because of that experience, shifter Leo starts out as a sourpuss, but Betrys knows he’s just the cat’s meow.

Reader Advisory: This story has graphic sexual language and scenes—no closed bedroom doors (or other rooms) here!

Seized and Seduced: That Graphic Enough for You?

My Sexy Saturday

This week I’m spotlighting my latest release, Seized & Seduced, which is book three in my House of the Cat series, but it can be read as a stand alone. Seized & Seduced is a mmf paranormal romance.

“She looks like a warrior,” Lynx said.

Shiloh silently agreed as he scanned her body. She wasn’t as beautiful as some women he’d known, but she was sleek and muscular, her features bold and striking. Not his type. Probably not Lynx’s either. He glanced up at Lynx and found the prince watching him. A bolt of lust struck him so hard he gasped.

“Gods,” he muttered, not releasing Lynx’s gaze.

Lynx gave him a nervous smile but didn’t glance away either. “It’s not just me who feels as if I’m about to jump out of my skin?”

“No. I know what I want to do. It’s probably not wise.”

Lynx swallowed, the strong chords of his throat moving noticeably. “Tell me.”

“I want to rip off your clothes and touch you.” Shiloh was amazed he could keep his voice steady with urgency crashing his mind. When Lynx didn’t reply, Shiloh continued. “I want to put my mouth on you, rub our cocks together. And I want to fuck you.” His left hand clenched against the calibore’s fur. “That graphic enough for you?”

BLURB:

During a routine stop en route to Viros, Jannike Hondros is kidnapped and incarcerated, her destination a planet she’d hoped to never, ever visit again—Manx Two, the planet where she was accused of murder.

Prince Lynx Leandros of Viros, second-in-line to the House of the Cat, and his bodyguard, Shiloh Tetsu, are caught in the same trap as Jannike. Destined for sale as a breeding pair and a spare, escape seems impossible, and now Jannike informs the feline shifters they’re showing mating signs. Impossible. Neither Lynx nor Shiloh believe her, yet they can’t deny their relationship has turned strangely touchy-feely.

A lucky break sees them fleeing for their lives, but danger lurks over every sand hill in their race for safety. The two men are becoming even closer. Jealousy and yearning stalk Jannike. She can’t fall for either feline and certainly not for both, then nothing matters when she comes face-to-face with her past and death stalks her with its beady eye.

Contains two headstrong men and their female match, enough kitty cats to make a leap and some hot lovin’ in the great outdoors, the indoors and places in between.

Wild Child–Unrequited Love

My Sexy Saturday

This week’s theme for My Sexy Saturday is A Long Sexy Time and it’s all about those who have loved another for a long time. This love could have started when they were kids, when they were dating or even from afar. The point is that one character has loved the other for what seems like forever. In some stories, it is forever. The possibilities here are endless.

I’m showcasing Wild Child today, the very first book I self-published. Zoe has loved Matt for a long time, and she’s taking this last chance to prove to Matt that they have a future together. This scene takes place when Zoe arrives at Matt’s apartment in Australia unexpectedly.

Zoe wanted to laugh at the shock on Matt’s face. She shivered inwardly as pleasure surged in a molten rush to the achy spot between her legs. Her nipples were tight and crying out for attention. Tim, her childhood partner in crime and the only man she’d ever had sex with, had never made her feel like this with just a touch. Oh, they’d enjoyed their experimenting and remained close friends, but this… This was in a whole other league.

Her gaze slid over his naked chest, drifted up and down then settled on his biceps. “The Celtic tattoo is new. I like it.”

Matt didn’t answer, and she fought bubbling humor as she turned for his bedroom, putting an extra sashay in her steps. She’d never felt more feminine, more aware of her needs and power. In the bedroom, a secret smile curved her lips as she undid the robe and let it drop to the floor. She had loved him forever and instinctively knew what she felt wasn’t the love of a sister for a brother. It was more. Bigger. Now that she was here, she realized he was the reason she found every other man lacking.

Despite what people might say, there was no familial relationship between them. She was old enough now. Love between them wasn’t a sin. Nothing this beautiful could be a crime.

“You can’t—For God’s sake! Put some clothes on.” Matt had followed her, and now he looked as if he’d taken a bite from a sour apple.

“I always sleep in the nude.” She wanted to laugh so much her chest hurt. Then his gaze lit on her boobs and lingered. As he stared, her breasts prickled. The humor inside dropped away, replaced by growing lust. She trembled, sensual need winding her tight inside. With great daring, she gave into her need and stroked the palms of her hands across the taut peaks.

“Stop that,” he said. “God, I’ve fallen down a bloody rabbit hole. It’s the only explanation.”

Wild Child

BLURB:

Zoe Underwood is one sexy disruption.

From the moment her father married Matt’s mother, Zoe has tempted Matt Cantrell with her seductive curves and driven him crazy with her flirting and provocative manner. The thing is they have no future because Zoe is his stepsister. Determined to dodge trouble, Matt leaves Auckland to live and work in the Gold Coast of Australia. A sea between them should do the trick and let him move forward without the “Zoe” distraction in his life.

Matt Cantrell is one stubborn dude.

No one presses Zoe’s buttons like the tall, dark and gorgeous Matt. In fact, every other man pales in comparison. One last play. Zoe decides to invade Matt’s territory and make her move before some other clever woman snaps him up. She’ll bust through emotional walls and push boundaries. By the time she’s finished, Matt won’t know what hit him. Yes. Good or bad, she’ll stir things up and take a chance on love.

A Weta House in a Rimu Tree

We visited relations during the weekend, and one of them keeps a weta house in their garden. She says it’s so the wetas don’t jump out at her while she’s in the garden.

Rimu tree

This is a native rimu tree and where the wetas live. The rimu tree is very cool. You can’t tell from this picture but the leaves are actually long green strands, sort of like coarse hair.

Weta House

This is the weta house, perched in the branches of the rimu tree. Hubby took it out of the tree and opened it for me to see the wetas inside.

Weta House Open

You can see the wetas inside. When hubby opened the house, one fell out. We picked it up on a stick, took photos and then returned it to the house.

Weta

And this is a close up of a weta. They’re very cool and quite big. The weta is native to New Zealand.

What do you think – cool or totally gross?

Maybe Tomorrow: Sea of Change – a shifter romance

My Sexy Saturday

The theme is week is “Our Sexy Tomorrow”. I immediately thought of Sea of Change, my latest release. When Asia sees Roman Anderson across a crowded room she is stunned. He comes from an enemy tribe of orca shifters, but he doesn’t recognize her. When he asks her out on a date, she can’t resist. She’s thinking about her upcoming sexy night and has no intention of a sexy tomorrow. After all, Roman is the enemy, even if he is gorgeous. Then Roman is attacked and he thinks they’re married…

“I’m gonna shower before hitting the sack. Wash off this blood. Okay with you, sweetheart?”

“Um, sure.” The idea of him naked in her shower pushed her libido a notch higher. This wasn’t fair. He’d remember everything tomorrow and head back to his island kingdom without another word of sex or bed or anything resembling horizontal. That’s if he deigned to speak to her. For some unfathomable reason she wasn’t concerned with her safety, because he didn’t strike her as a bad man. She hoped she wasn’t wrong.

“You going to shower with me?”

Asia felt herself blink. Oh man, temptation on two legs, but it wasn’t right to take advantage of a man in this condition. “You need to sleep. If I shower with you we’ll get sidetracked.”

Roman’s dark gaze tracked down her body and back up to her face. A sexy smile—another of those panty-lowering ones—bloomed on his battered face. “That is true,” he acknowledged. “Maybe you’re right. It’ll be quicker if I shower on my own.” He slipped the ripped and bloody suit jacket off and let it drop to the floor.

When he started on the buttons of his shirt, Asia decided it was time to flee. “I’ll grab you a clean towel.” She shot from her bedroom as if a pack of Resident Orcas were after her. Her breathing had turned choppy and her palms were moist. She felt as if she’d swum across the Tasman Sea from Australia to New Zealand in record time. Asia wiped the dampness from her palms and took a deep breath. This couldn’t continue. She was an adult, for goodness sake. With trembling hands, she tugged open the cupboard and seized several towels.

The pipes clanked, indicating Roman had found the shower and turned on the water. Just the image of his naked body made her break into a cold sweat. Asia scowled. All she could think of was sex. The rush of pleasure at the moment of orgasm. Doing it with Roman. Her steps slowed. She heard the shower door open and close and imagined his naked body. Muscled. Tanned. Very touchable.

Oh boy.

Sea of Change

BLURB:

A sexy face in the crowd…

Orca shifter Asia Bolino can’t believe the gorgeous cutie is Roman Anderson. They belong to enemy tribes, but she’d love to run her fingers over his…assets. Roman doesn’t recognize her, and in a moment of weakness, Asia agrees to a late-night date, a little forbidden pleasure.

Someone attacks Roman while he waits for Asia. Aware of his shifter status, Asia does the only thing she can—she takes him back to her apartment. The problem is when he regains consciousness, he thinks they’re married. He parades around her apartment wearing nothing but a smile, and Asia is weak. She succumbs to his charm and skilful loving. Hip-deep in lies, she’s aware the sensual bubble might burst at any moment. That might mean bloodshed, and she can’t allow that to happen. Worse, Roman doesn’t seem to recall he’s a shifter.

Asia struggles with guilt while melting at Roman’s touch. Nothing can come of their relationship, and now it seems someone knows the truth and they’re both in danger.
