Horny Hump Day--Familiar Desires

Because I"m editing Familiar Desires at the moment that's pretty much the only thing I've been working on lately so I thought I'd share a little snippet from it. This comes under the heading-- talk dirty to me.

Working blurb for Familiar Desires
Returning to her hometown to investigate a disappearance, Alana Cohl doesn't expect it to be comfortable and hopes she can finish this quickly. She's not ready to face her past yet. But there's more going on in the mountainous region than a few missing people. Circumstance force her to work alongside the two wizards she left years ago and the heat between them hasn't faded over time.

 Kane and Michael Sullivan have been waiting for Alana to return. As wizards, they're accustomed to getting what they want. They're not prepared to let her slip away again. It has nothing to do with the tie of magic between the three of them and everything to do with the fact that they belong together. They ache to take her in their arms and show her that the desire raging between them is more than the bond between wizard and familiar. If they have their way, she'll never want to leave them again.

Not safe for Work.

Set up: Kane's doing his best to make Alana purr for him and Michael gives her a little incentive.

 “Fuck him, Alana. Ride him until your quivering in his arms and then I’m going to take you to the shower and fuck you while the water pours over both of us.” Michael whispered the words against her ear.

Happy Hump Day!

Guest Post: Q&A and excerpt from AJ Williams--His Final Bounty

I'd like to welcome guest author AJ Williams to the Lair today! Be sure to check out the link to AJ's giveaway at the bottom of this post.

Hi AJ, tell us a little about His Final Bounty.

His Final Bounty is the last installment in the Bounty Series. It follows Jefferson Anders and Eva Rosenberg as they journey through secrets, understanding, danger, passion and love.

This sounds very interesting. Which of the characters from this book is your favorite? Why?

 I really love them all. I can't pick one. Honestly. I do have to say that there is a character at the end of the book who was quiet a surprise. He has a deep story to tell.

Do you write to music?

 Yes, I have to have music. Sometimes it's to help with a scene or just to get in the mood.

Do you find pictures to represent your characters?

I love finding pictures of characters. Sometimes when I'm having a hard time with a scene I will pull the image up and stare at it for a while until the words become clear once more.

I'm always interested in a little of the back story of a book. What was your inspiration for His Final Bounty?

As this was the final book I wanted to bring all the characters together.  When Eva and Jefferson are first introduced you know there is something dark inside of Jefferson and that there is something holding Eva back. I really wanted to dive into their characters and tell why they were that way.

Will there be another book in the Bounty for Hire Series?

No I don't think so but in His Final Bounty I introduced a couple of new characters, so I might write that has to do with them.

Quick Questions
Favorite Chocolate-Dark or Milk?     Dark Chocolate
Favorite Drink-Coffee, tea, hot chocolate or other? Name it please.  Starbucks Cofee Blond, Irish and English Breakfast Tea
Favorite Snack while writing? Cheez-its
Favorite Actor? Gerard Butler
Ebook or Print Book? Which do you prefer? Both, Sometimes I need the feel of a book in my  hand

Eva Rosenberg hacks a secret file of Jefferson's and discovers the man who shattered her heart and her world has one giant secret.

Jefferson Anders’ current bounty hunting status has allowed him to hide in the shadows, never forcing him to face the secrets of his past. Having spent five years hiding the truth, he never dreamed the secrets of his past would catch up to him. Secrets which cost him both the love of his life and connection to his family. Now, he must face the mistakes of his past.

With a confrontation looming with Eva and a possible death threat, they must work as a team to find forgiveness and defeat the enemy that waits in the shadows.


Dinner went well, Eva thought, although with every bite that Jefferson took, he would circle his tongue around his lips. The action caused her mind to drift to their times together the past few days. After dinner, she was ready to get back and be thoroughly ravished. However, Jefferson had other ideas. The rat bastard ordered dessert for them to share.
After dessert, Eva finally had him convinced to go back to the hotel. Once in the room, Eva didn’t stand a chance as Jefferson picked her up and placed her on the bed.
She was thankful she had a skirt on because as her knees came up from the bed, Jefferson was there between them pulling her panties down her knees and legs. He finally threw them somewhere in the dark room.
Eva didn’t care where they landed just as long as he had his mouth on her. She wasn’t one for oral play, but when she met Jefferson something about him turned her into a craving lunatic for oral pleasure. He showed her how beautiful oral pleasure could be for a man and a woman.
With her legs spread wide, Eve watched as Jefferson disappeared between her legs and under her skirt. She didn’t have to wait long before she felt his mouth on her. No fingers, just pure Jefferson and his lips sucking and licking her. When he stopped, she groaned out in need.
“God, baby, so wet.”
“Fucker, I’ve been wet since before dinner.”
“Dripping.” His voice was muted as he went back to working her pussy with his mouth. Soon, fingers joined in, and then her legs were pulled up over his shoulders allowing him deeper access. Eva could feel her back arching as she dug her hands into the comforter. Sweat beaded her forehead, focusing on not cumming too soon. She wanted to enjoy every second of his mouth on her.
Eva lost the battle as her climax rose higher as Jefferson’s fingers worked her harder and deeper.
“Shit!” she screamed, not caring if the neighbors on the other side or the manager down the hall heard her. Lights exploded behind her eyes as her release left her body. Her body was limp but she didn’t get a chance to relax as Jefferson moved from between her legs with lightening speed off the bed.
She nearly screamed at his leaving her when she watched as he ripped his jeans off and his shirt. Through the haze of lust, Eva could make out his form in the darkness. Even with no light, his body thrilled her. Muscular lines formed all over his body, creating the effect of a man built to protect.
When he was completely stark naked, she focused on his slow movements back to her. His eyes were illuminated by the moonlight slipping through the inch opening in the curtains. Those predator eyes warned her not to move. His eyes should have scared her, only it had the reverse effect—she was turned on.
Holding his gaze, Eva watched as he put one knee on the bed and then another, slowly crawling his way up her body, kissing her stomach first, then her left breast, then her right. Up to her collarbone, her neck, to her ear, then the other ear.
“Torture,” she gasped, as his fingers skimmed the side of her body slowly making a trail that followed his kisses. However, his fingers stopped when they reached her breasts. His mouth left her neck and worked back down to her breasts.
His touches were feather light around her breasts. Using his mouth, he blew lightly on the tips of her nipples, instantly hardening them. His tongue ran circles on each of her nipples, tightening each one dramatically as goose flesh covered her skin.
Eva couldn’t take the torture any longer. She moved her hand from the comforter and eased two fingers into her drenched, aching swollen pussy. As he kissed around her nipples and down the slopes of her breasts, Eva worked her pussy with her fingers.
She was on the brink of another orgasm when Jefferson stilled her fingers.
“Not yet, baby,” he whispered against her nipple before taking it in his mouth and slightly biting. The pain and the pleasure made her desperate for his dick to be inside of her body.

I've been MIA for a while. I'm deep in edits for Familiar Desire and keep intending to come here. I have something I want to post and I'll get it on here in the next few days. As well as the edits, I've been thinking and solidifying where the last few scenes on Lover's Claim will go. The characters went off in a direction I hadn't expected and it left me trying to fit it into the plot I had. There's only one spot that I thought might give me trouble and I'm fairly sure that I've found a way around that block. If it doesn't work, I'll throw out that plot point and find a way that does work.

Tomorrow be sure to stop back by and see the Q&A guest blog by AJ Williams. She's celebrating the release of His Final Bounty, will be giving me the answers to a few questions and there's a yummy excerpt as well as contest!

More to come soon!

Happy Reading!

Horny Hump Day-Lovers Claim II

This week I'm again giving you a snippet from Lovers Claim. With three heroes to keep my heroine busy, I have more than a few examples to pick from and I have to give these guys equal play.

Rough Blurb
Sephanie Lindsey wanted a menage relationship. More to the point, she wanted Berenger, Kassius and Teague until she overheard something which made her believe they could never want her. Just as she's beginning to get her confidence back and move on, they begin to show interest in her. Sephanie doesn't trust it, but Berenger, Kassius and Teague aren't walking away from her. They're going to claim their woman.

Not Safe For Work!!

Here's a little of Berenger and Sephanie's first time together.

He wanted to feel the pleasure take her almost as much as he wanted to take his own. Pressing his hand against the mound of her pussy, he let the force of his thrusts drive his fingers against her clit. Her inner muscles clamped around him, rippling.

Happy Reading!

Horny Hump Day--Lover's Claim WIP

This is my first foray into the Horny Hump Day blog hop. It's a weekly hop where writers share three sentences from sexy scene in a WIP or book. My three sentences come from my WIP Lover's Claim.

Lover's Claim is set on the same world as Lover's Return. Here's a short, rough blurb for it.

Sephanie Lindsey wanted a menage relationship. More to the point, she wanted Berenger, Kassius and Teague until she overheard something which made her believe they could never want her. Just as she's beginning to get her confidence back and move on, they begin to show interest in her. Sephanie doesn't trust it, but Berenger, Kassius and Teague aren't walking away from her. They're going to claim their woman.

Not Safe for Work

Set up:  Teague and Sephanie are making love for the first time.

My three sentences:

He groaned as the move pulled him deeper and her pussy tightened around him. Possessiveness built with every stroke into her tight channel. This was his woman and he wasn’t giving her up.

State of the WIP

  • Lover's Claim-(Still not sure about that title. It fit's, but it doesn't.)-This puppy is a little over 3/4 done. Huge Yeah! I'm pretty sure at 67k it's already over the tentative word count I'd guessed at. I'm not sure how long it will be. Some of the last scenes might run together, but my newest guess is 80k. I've focused on this story for the moment, though I will get back my others soon. The characters are simply more talkative right now. And I want to get it finished since I'm getting so close to those fabulous, final words.
  • PA Dallas (tentatively titled Maria's Mate). Not much progress on this since last time, but I love the heroine in it. I've been doing some research trying to pin down a few facts for the heroine's job, but having a little trouble finding what I need. The internet's great, but I keep finding conflicting information.
  • SS3-Since I've been focused on Lover's Claim, the word count hasn't moved much, but it's ready to go forward when I next need a break from LC. I'm eager to see what the witch has in store for her dragon and vampire.
  • As soon as I finish Lover's Claim, I'm moving a short I started handwriting into that spot. This one won't grow too much, because the plot is very contained. I'll need to solidify the plot before I do, but for the most part it's all there and ready.
  • In regards to the handwriting project I was talking about in a recent post, I'm still trying to decide how to separate the heroine from her protection, but will get back into this at some point. (There are so many options that I can't decide which one would be the best.)
Happy Reading!
