Synopsis

No. No. No. Olivia didn’t have one-night stands. But she can fix it. All she has to do is sneak out undetected and forget the whole thing ever happened. Wrong. Luck is not on her side.

 Derrick can’t believe it when he wakes up alone after the best night of his life. He’s supposed to be the one to slip away in the middle of the night. But Olivia wasn’t his typical pickup—she was different. Now she’s gone, and he has no idea if he’ll see her again. Lucky for him, she might be closer than he realizes.

 Finding her is easy, convincing her that they should be a couple—not so much.

Excerpts

Derrick touched her shoulder, causing her to glance up at him. She was so close—so warm. He only needed to lean forward to close the distance. Her tongue darted out, licking her lips. He inched closer. Her breath whispered against his face as his mouth grazed over hers.

Derrick pulled her closer, wanting to feel as much of her as possible. Her hands wrapped around him as they wove their way into his jacket. Olivia trailed her fingers up and down his back. He threaded his own fingers in her thick hair, pulling her into his lap. A small moan escaped her lips and he deepened the kiss, taking control as he explored her mouth. He wasn’t exactly sure what they had, but he was determined to find out.

Ruin wakes up on Earth knowing only one thing: to Judge and Execute.

heaven tremble

 

Excerpt 18+

“What are you doing?”

The hot need in Isadore’s raspy voice ignited the executing fire inside Ruin and he scooped her up in his arms and headed to the stairs with her. “I need… to love you.” His own desire stole his ability to think and speak as he made his way to her bed.

“Love me?” She held his face as he kissed her with more hunger than he’d ever felt.

“Yes,” he gasped, moving along her face, then jaw. “I need to love you… with all that I am. Right now.” He sucked hard on her neck and groaned when she pulled his hair and fought to get closer to him.

“Do it, yes, do it. I missed you.”

How long had they been apart? He wanted to ask but he needed to be buried inside her first, in every conceivable way. The assignment Caliber had programmed into him burned and gnawed over the left side of his chest. Or was that the agony of what he was assigned to do?

Ruin laid Isadore on the bed, gasping for air around the pressure in his being while stroking her face and yanking at her clothes. She fought with his shirt and with one desperate thought, he disintegrated it.

Their bodies came together in a hot fervor of moans and clawing, biting and sucking. With all the need inside him, he thrust into Isadore’s body, drowning her cries with his hungry mouth, growling and grinding without stop, until she screamed his name the way he craved her to– desperate, intense, mind blowing.

“I love you,” he gasped, keeping his body sealed hard and tight to hers, never wanting to let up or let go as he emptied himself into her.

She was his. He was hers. And nobody…not even God would take her from him. Caliber’s assignment to kill the woman he loved was a declaration of war.

by Author Logan Patricks

 4ea6b-synopsismabw3

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.

My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.

And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.

Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.

Falling in love with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

From Consuming Worlds Book Reviews:

“Reading Semblance was like being in the audience at one of Bach’s performances.

If this in fact were a show I would give Semblance a standing ovation…you need to run to your reading device and download it!

 
From Gabi Daniel’s Book Blog: 
“I love Semblance. This novel is a fast-paced, suspense driven, page-turner…Honest to God, I suspected everyone and figured out nothing!…Now THIS is a strong, independent female character I like!”

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess.

Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.

In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie.

The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster–a person whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad.

One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.

Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society.

Emily McKinley has been a prisoner in her own home since she began her first heat cycle. As a rare female wolf, and the alpha’s daughter, she has led a sheltered life. When Marcus Jackson comes to the pack, Emily is instantly drawn to him. As the daughter of an alpha, she is required to find a proper mate—another alpha. Marcus is everything she could possibly want in a mate and more, but he isn’t an alpha, and her father will never approve. Unable to deny their mutual attraction, Marcus and Emily find themselves falling for each other. But Emily’s world comes crashing down when her father orders her to become a breeder for a misogynistic pack. She tries to protest her father’s decision, but the more Emily fights, the more dire the situation becomes.

After the devastating loss of his father, Gene Harris has become the alpha of his werewolf pack. He has been training for this his entire life.

Talia knows her only chance at freedom is to team up with Gene. Talia finds herself falling for the alpha as they begin to work together.

Finding Our Way

Bad things happen in threes. For Nora Jamison, this couldn’t be truer. Her grandmother passed away, her best friend is in trouble, and she just hit a man with her car. It cannot possibly get any worse. Wrong! Nora quickly finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed. Werewolves are real, and they are after her and the mysterious stranger she hit. Running for her life, she ends up on a ranch in Texas. Stuck in a new, unfamiliar world, she gets to know the man that helped rescue her. Daniel McKinley is different than anyone Nora has ever met. Despite his rough exterior, Nora can tell there is more to him than meets the eye. However, Nora has a tiny secret of her own. She can only hope that when Daniel learns it he will still look at her the same way.

Daniel McKinley has always been a loner. His father trained him to be an alpha through brute force—not through people skills. Now that Daniel’s older brother is alpha instead, he has become even more of an outcast. Despite their differences, the wolf in him craves the acceptance of his brother—his alpha. While trying to prove himself, he is involved in an accident that draws a human into the line of fire. Unwilling to see an innocent hurt by the enemy wolves after him and his pack, he vows to protect her. Nora is kind, caring, and strong. His past is dark and he fears if she learns too much it will scare her away. Although, he tries to keep his distance, there is something about her that draws him in. Can he keep Nora safe and earn his brother’s trust in the process?

werwolf wars SYNOPSIS

Sarah Davies has had what some might call a string of bad luck; she just calls it devastating. She’s suffered the loss of loved ones as well as a kidnapping, and now her family thinks she is dead. Abandoned in the middle of New Mexico with crazy werewolves chasing after her, she can only trust her companion, Vincent McKinley. As they strain to survive the wilderness and evade their assailants, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly bonding with Vincent. He is kind and caring and Sarah can see them forming something far greater than friendship. But she has lost so many loved ones in the past; it terrifies her to open her heart to anyone else.

Vincent McKinley has sworn to protect Sarah with his life, but their pursuers seem hell bent on making him break his word. Determined to keep his promise, Vincent goes to extreme lengths to keep Sarah safe. Together, they work side-by-side to devise a plan that will stop their enemies for good. As tensions mount, so do their feelings for each other. Will they get the chance to explore their emotions, or will their enemies catch up to them first?

werewolf wars excerpts

Sarah snuggled further into the warm pillows, enjoying the heat of the heavy quilts. A steady thrum thumped beneath her ear. The sound was soothing, but she couldn’t quite place what it was. She moved her arm to hook it under her pillow.

     Her digits froze as they skimmed over a fleshy, hard plain. Sarah jolted up, throwing the covers back.

     The cool morning chill took her breath away. She wrapped her arms around herself and peered down at Vincent. He lay sleeping, his chest rising and falling in even breaths.

     A few scars were scattered over his pecks, but, instead of taking away from his muscular torso, it made it more defined. He had a definitive six-pack and a small patch of dark hair trailed from his belly button and into the plaid pants he was wearing.

     Wait! What? Why am I looking at him like that?

     Averting her eyes, she surveyed the room. The bed was against the wall on her side, and the foot of the bed was positioned against the wall as well. If she wanted out, she would have to crawl over Vincent. Great!

     Sarah bit her lip, and ran a hand through her gnarled golden locks.

     Vincent rolled toward her, and his arm jutted out, wrapping around her hips as he buried his face into her side. Sarah froze, her breath catching in her throat. Oh my god! What is he doing?

     “Stop stealing all the covers,” he murmured.

     Sarah’s pulse roared in her ears as she sat unmoving. After a long moment, she heard the quiet whistling of Vincent’s snore. He was asleep. Carefully, she placed her hand over his, slowly lifting his fingers so she could wiggle out of his grasp. Once free, she stood up on her side, set his arm on the bed, and tossed the covers back over him. She inhaled sharply and closed her eyes. Praying that he wouldn’t wake up, Sarah skimmed her foot over the covers, placing it on the other side of Vincent. Sarah lifted her other foot. She was almost there she just needed to get down. A part of her wanted to stay in bed and go back to sleep in his comforting embrace. But the other part, found it unnerving that she had slept like that with him at all.

     Vincent’s hand shot out from under the blankets, catching her ankle in midair. A scream bubbled up her throat as she lost her balance. She landed on Vincent’s lap. His hand latched onto her hip as he rose up. She screeched as he rolled her to her back, pressing his forearm onto her throat. Sarah gasped and struggled beneath his weight.

     “Sarah?” Vincent asked confused, instantly moving his arm. He shot up, straddling her as his eyes widened with horror.

     She closed her eyes as she coughed.

     “God, I’m sorry. I sensed movement over me. I…”

     “I was trying to get out of bed. I didn’t want to wake you,” she blurted, staring up into his emerald eyes.

     “I didn’t even think to check. Did I hurt you?” he asked, his eyes glancing over her.

     “I’m okay,” she assured. “It could have been someone else.” And it could have been. At least he was prepared and on alert, even when he was resting.

     Vincent stiffened over her and cleared his throat. Heat crept over her face, burning all the way to her ears as she realized their position. He was nestled between her thighs, his chest pressed against hers with his face mere inches away.

     “Sorry,” he said as he peeled himself off of her. He got out of bed and walked to the fire, grumbling something under his breath. Vincent picked up the poker and jabbed at the ashes.

Sarah lay back into the pillows for a moment. Her body was on fire and butterflies fluttered through her belly. Her body had reacted to him and that scared her.

     “Our clothes are dry,” Vincent said as he checked the clothesline that hung next to the fire. He slipped his green shirt on. “And we still have berries. Breakfast?” He turned to her with the wooden bowl of fruit in hand.

     Sarah gulped, her eyes inadvertently dipping down to take in his torso again. Realizing she was checking him out, she snapped her eyes up to his. She needed to get out of this house. “Sounds good. Then let’s go for that walk. You can show me what you found.”

1912233_1529093373974721_2310447439987592187_n

Sarah rested her chin on her palm as she slumped forward onto the diner’s table. She’d finished her waffles and bacon a while ago, but Vincent showed no sign of stopping. She knew that werewolves ate a lot, but seriously, where was he putting it all?
     His body was in prime condition. She’d felt his muscles beneath her fingertips last night—had seen his washboard abs and sculpted chest up close and personal. She shuddered as she remembered the way he’d felt pressed up against her.

     A familiar ache thrummed in her core, causing her to press her thighs together If she didn’t reign in her thoughts, he was going to be able to smell the shift in her mood.

     “You know,” she started, “I think you’re the reason they stopped the all-you-can-eat pancakes at the diner back home.”

     “What? This is only my fifth plate,” Vincent said, confused.

     Sarah laughed and shook her head. “There are three huge pancakes on each plate. That’s fifteen pancakes, Vincent.”

     “Glad to see you can multiply,” Vincent teased. “I’m almost done.”

     “No,” she waved her hand. “Eat. They shouldn’t have an all-you-can-eat menu option if they don’t expect people to do just that.”

     Vincent took the last syrupy bite and used the napkin to wipe his face. “You know, the waitress and cook have a bet on whether I’ll order another plate or not.”
     “And what do you intend to do?” Sarah asked, raising her eyebrow, curiously. He couldn’t possibly eat more, could he?

     “No more for me. I’m stuffed.” He patted his belly appreciatively as he gave her a lopsided grin.

     Her eyes drifted down to his stomach. His red shirt covered him, but she bit her lip as she got another flash of his shirtless form in her mind. She really needed to stop thinking about him like that. Last night had been great, but he hadn’t brought it up and neither had she. She was slightly confused about where they stood. Of course, it was mostly her fault. After all, she’d fled the room before he woke up.

     This friends-with-benefits thing could work for them. She just had to be careful not to get too close. That could be a challenge, but she was sure she could do it.

     “You ready?” Vincent asked interrupting her thoughts as he stood up. He took a twenty out of his pocket and set it on the table.

Synopsis
 

Laila had already overcome many heartbreaking obstacles in her twenty-five years… but none compared to this. With her brother missing and no other family to speak of, Laila has no idea of the evil that shadows her every move. Now in the hands of a notorious cartel family, she quickly learns that trust and betrayal are a deadly mix.

Aiden had a plan. One that was operating smoothly until Laila surfaced in his father’s mansion. With time against him, he must work night and day to right the wrongs that threaten to expose his ultimate betrayal.

Juan and Aiden share many differences, but the one thing that threatens to tear their family apart is the one thing they want to claim as their own, no matter what the costs.

This series continues with Part Two: Crimson Desert (Bittersweet Duet)

WARNING: This book contains violence, and sexual themes. Intended for readers 18+

Little Doll – Excerpt

“Please don’t let him come near me again,” I sobbed, sitting forward. I knew it sounded like I was pleading and I was at peace with that. Maybe he could be further swayed into helping me.

“If I had stayed, he would not have laid a finger on you to begin with and he knows it.” There was sincerity in his words as his eyes met mine. “Like I said, it won’t happen again.”

Aiden reached over to the basin and grabbed a washcloth. Submerging it into the bath, he wrung out the excess water and, cupping my chin, gently wiped the tears and mascara from my cheeks. I closed my eyes and allowed the heavenly warm water to caress my skin. I relished Aiden’s soft hands that made me want to melt into them and his breath sweet on my face. Perhaps the stark comparison between the touch of both men was playing tricks on my mind.

My eyes shot open to find him staring intently back, a faint frown marring his features. Our faces were no more than eight inches apart and an unfamiliar magnetic pull existed between us.

Aiden cleared his throat and pulled his eyes away from mine, a sense of discomfort settling between us.

“Has there been any news about my brother?” I asked, aiming to be more professional in this game of kidnapping while struggling to ignore the vibes between us.

Aiden’s head snapped to face mine, this time I knew the look of reproach was directed at me. I watched, feeling slightly reprimanded as he tossed the washcloth on the tub edge and turned to the towel rack to dry his hands.

“I have to go,” he said coldly, his tone a stark contrast from moments earlier. It felt like a slap in the face from a man I was beginning to place my trust in. It was a foolish notion.

I was the fool.

Synopsis
 

 

Now back across the border, LAILA realizes that all had not been as it seemed at the Florez mansion. Learning to trust the man she wanted dead was going to take time. Time was not on her side.
For AIDEN, the damage was done. There was no going back. Except for one thing… revenge.
Giving up was never an option for JUAN. Not even now when everything had changed. He lived and breathed the thrill of the chase and this time the end prize was too great to lose.
This is a dark story where the taste for love and revenge clash in the most unforgiving ways.

Crimson Desert – Excerpt
 
“We are only a few men against hundreds who are happy to see us all die, even though they have never met us. They have never even met Hector or Juan, yet they would do almost anything for them. It’s hard to compete against that. All things considered, we have done well to stay alive.”

Danny was right and I had only made it harder for Aiden to look out for me. “So what happens next?”

“What did Juan say to you when we were shooting at him?”

“That he would come back for me. That I belonged to him and that he would be watching everything I do.”

“Do you believe him?”

“Yes.”

“Why?”

“Cos he has done well so far.”

Danny looked to window lost in contemplation. “We go after him.”

“What? That’s crazy.”

He looked back to me, not a hint of humor in his chocolate brown eyes. “Not crazy. It’s survival. We can’t keep running forever. The whole goal was to keep you safe and out of harm’s way, then go back for the kill.”

“Kill?” This had never been mentioned before.

“Aiden wants Juan’s blood and he will stop at nothing.”

Title: DOM, a man apart

Author: Ethan Radcliff

Release Date: Oct 15, 2014

Published by: Bitten Press, LLC

Genre: BDSM Erotica

GoodreadsLogo

✦✦Synopsis✦✦

Dom CoverIn the world of pain and pleasure, Charles Damien Macavoy reigned. He was a man apart, one who require more than most. He was a Master of BDSM. He’d been asked by another Dom and good friend to train the Dom’s current sub and love interest. Charles had trained many, but found himself attracted to his new trainee.

He was aware the fascination would wear off, it always did, and he’d returned the trainee to her Master willing and ready to submit. Lurking in the shadows of a world few are accustomed to is evil. Sometimes a thing of beauty has hidden thorns. Sometimes the hunter becomes the hunted.

Excerpt

New Dom Teaser6

“Oh fuck,” she whispered. “Oh fuck,” she continued. She was on all fours, her head hung down just above the hot sensuous streams of water from the jets in the tub. The sight before him, his cock sliding in and out of her, the cheeks of her perfect ass shook with each hard arousing thrust hardening his balls. His abdomen was so fucking tight he was unsure if he was going to be able to hold back much longer. Then she began to tremble. “Charles, oh fuck!” she yelled at him. “I’m coming!”

✦✦About Ethan Radcliff✦✦

ethan profile

I’ve been writing since I was a kid. I love creating and tried my hand at art, not bad but not good enough. A guy’s gotta eat. Through high school I wrote erotic stories, kept them in a notebook, let a few of my girlfriends read them. Yeah, played football, baseball, but my brain never stopped thinking of sex. I guess we think about it all the time. Been on face book for a while never did anything interesting when I was on until I started to see all the writers and then some poets posting their erotic prose. Men who were writing erotic romance and stories, I knew it was my time to get out the old note book and throw on some poems. Some are old and some are new, the ones about BDSM are newer. In high school or college I wasn’t on that train of thought. I see a picture it sets me off. A see an attractive women it sets me off. The jiggle of a full ass or heavy breasts, gets me going. Yeah, my mind always is on a beautiful face or body.

LL Excerpt

He all-but dumped me in the middle of the vast king-sized bed, before falling on top on me. After deftly undoing my bra, he ducked his head to feast on my breasts.

The instant his mouth captured one throbbing nipple, I arched my back as I tried to get him to take more of me inside him.

“Yes, Brendon!”

He withdrew slightly, to glance up at me.

“Say, yes, Sir.” Hell, at this point I would have said anything, even yes, master.

“Yes, Sir.” My voice was breathy, as it always was when in the throes of passion.

He groaned loudly. “Mmm, I love hearing those words on your lips.”

As if in confirmation, he planted a wet kiss on them, before resuming where he had left off; this time, plucking my other nipple to suck and nip.

All too soon, he withdrew and I was surprised to see that somehow, without me realising it, he had undid the remaining buttons and had eased the shirt off my shoulders; all while his mouth had been occupied with my chest.

Kneeling before me, with a wicked grin, he pulled my skirt down, to leave me in just my knickers and heels. Staring up at him I noticed that, as usual, he was still fully dressed. Well, before he went any further, I wanted to begin to strip him bare.

Pushing myself up onto my elbows, I peered up into his eager face and began to unbutton his pale blue shirt. Task done, I sat up straighter to boldly press my face against his now-naked chest; my most favourite part of Brendon’s body.

My lips roamed over the massive area, dropping kisses as I went, until I reached one erect nipple, which was too tempting to resist.

I greedily sucked on the hard bud, enjoying the sound and feel of his in-drawn breath. He tried to pull me free, and I used that opportunity to latch onto his other one. When I had had my fill, I lifted my gaze, to see him shaking his head at my antics.

My attention then dropped to his pants. Scooting lower, I easily undid the button and then the zip, before slowly sliding them over his broad hips and down his muscular thighs.

At this point he elected to assist my efforts, by shifting backwards off the end of the bed. Now standing, he shucked his trousers and footwear before, spreading his arms wide, offered me the opportunity to rid him of his last vestige of clothing; his black figure-hugging Calvin Klein’s, which more than emphasised his package.

Licking my lips, I plunged in quickly, before he decided to wrest back control. Before even attempting to remove his jocks, I put my face up close to his bulge and breathed deeply.

“Mmm, you smell good enough to eat!”

On hearing my brassy comment, he chuckled softly, before issuing an invitation, “Be my guest.”

He had, no doubt, been expecting me to free his manhood before starting; instead I opened my mouth wide and took in as much as the cloth barrier would allow.

“Fuck!” He sounded as though he was in pain, but I knew otherwise. Sliding my mouth up and down the length of him only served to increase his size, much to my delight. Eventually, desiring more, I carefully peeled back the front of his jocks, letting his cock jut free, in all its glory.

I gave the tip one playful lick, before sliding his underwear all the way down to his toes. While he was kicking them away, I pushed backwards on the bed and laid down on my back, with my head hanging over the end where he was standing, tall and proud; both Brendon and his ‘best friend’.

In this position I was close to and directly below his now fully erect appendage, much to Brendon’s enjoyment, if his wide grin was anything to go by. I reached up with one hand and, grasping him, directed his member into my inverted mouth. This position was a first for me and I only hoped, it was his too.

I immediately noted one significant advantage to this angle of giving head; I could watch his face, his changing expressions as I took my time servicing him. Furthermore, he capitalised on the accessibility of my naked breasts, seizing them to roughly massage the globes, while I continued to reciprocate with an internal massage of my own.

His fingers found my nipples and squeezed, causing a chain reaction as I just barely managed not to bite; with my teeth grazing against him instead.

“Oh, Suzie!”

An Interview with Brendon & Suzy

From - Reading, Writing, and Book Reviews (RWBR)

RWBR-      Brendon, everyone is wanting to know about the spare room and the clothes in the wardrobe.

 

Brendon-       (Laughs) Sorry, can’t tell.

 

RWBR-      Does Suzie ask you about it in Hard Ball?

 

Brendon-       Yes she does.

 

RWBR-      You’re not giving much away, are you?

 

Brendon-       That’s what I’m like; everyone knows that.

 

RWBR-      Okay, one more question on the subject – do you give her an explanation?

 

Brendon-       No. When she asks me, there are far more pressing issues to be dealt with.

         And, before you ask, no I can’t tell you what those are.

 

Suzie-       And I’m still waiting (as well as the readers) – what is up with that room?

 

Brendon-       We’ll discuss this later, in private.

 

Suzie-       Yeah, right!

 

Brendon-       Suzanna!

 

RWBR-      Ok, if I may interrupt…?

 

Suzie-      (Laughs) He doesn’t like that, do you Brendon?

 

Brendon-       No. What’s your question?

 

RWBR-      What about Jason?

 

Suzie-       He’s my ex.

 

Brendon-       Atwell? What does he have to do with anything?

 

RWBR-      My question was to Brendon – are you still worried that Suzie still has contact with him?

 

Brendon-       No, the contact is only with regard to work. She knows not to overstep that boundary.

 

Suzie-       I’ve told you I won’t cheat on you, why don’t you believe me?

 

RWBR-      So, she isn’t allowed to have male friends?

 

Brendon-       Not that one, no.

 

Suzie-       See what I have to put up with?

 

RWBR-      On that topic, what about Leon Graham – is he still causing problems for Suzie in Hard Ball?

 

Brendon-       Unfortunately yes. I had promised Suzie he wouldn’t bother her again.

 

Suzie-       It’s not your fault.

 

Brendon-       No, but in Hard Ball everyone finds out whose fault it is!

RWBR-     Can you tell our readers what you would do, if you came face to face with him?

 

Brendon-       Actually, that does happen in Hard Ball.

 

Suzie-       I was there as well.

 

RWBR-      And?

 

Brendon-      And, they’ll just have to read the book, won’t they?

 

RWBR-      Fair enough – you drive a hard bargain.

 

Brendon-       I always do.

Even though I have a very busy life (wife, mother and secretary) I still manage to devote time to my passion for writing, and of course, reading. I don’t think I could survive without reading.

 My current story came to me in a dream and it just grew from there. It is an erotic relationship theme with bdsm elements. I started writing it just to get it out of my head.

 Now that I am nearing the end of this series, an earlier storyline has begun to take over.

I also have a regency tale that is half finished, which I will get to once these others get out of my head and onto the page.

 I live in the south west of Western Australia. This is a lovely view from one of the many beaches just minutes from my home. (pic above)

When on holidays I enjoy camping with my family and two dogs. Here are a couple of pix from our last trip.(pix above)

I always make sure I have plenty of reading material and, since I started writing, my laptop is the first thing I pack.

 Author Interview

 

 

1-

RWBR: How did you get started writing?

Lorraine: I’ve always liked writing, but many years ago, I decided to go to a novel writing workshop run by a famous local author. Soon after, I started my first novel. Unfortunately that piece is still unfinished, as my current story took over.

 

2-

RWBR: Are you a fan of Australian Football? Is that why you created Brendon’s character to be an AFL player?

Lorraine: Absolutely – I love the footy! AFL has a large female following – and why not? I must admit that was what first attracted me to the sport – watching hot guys running around in tight shorts.

 

3-

RWBR: Who is your favorite character in your series and why?

Lorraine: Definitely Suzie. She has great strength (some readers may not have seen that yet), but stick around and you will see what I mean.

 

4-

RWBR: How many books are planned for the PLAYING THE GAME series?

Lorraine: Originally only one, then four, now I know there will be five! I didn’t want this many, but I have so few time lapses, because there is always something happening that I can’t skip over.

 

5-

RWBR: Do you have a favorite sex scene in the series thus far?

Lorraine: Yes, it’s in Hard Ball, so I won’t say too much about it – but it’s the scene where she takes off his Calvin Kleins (I’ve done a teaser about that)

6-

RWBR: What have you enjoyed about being an Indie Author so far?

Lorraine: The knowledge that’s it’s all me – from the first word to the finished product. It still gives me a thrill that there are readers out there that like my work.

 

7-

RWBR: In the series, Suzie likes to drink Scotch and Coke. What is your favorite drink?

Lorraine: I don’t drink much – about once a month (maybe), but yes, when I indulge, its Scotch and Coke.

8-

RWBR: In the PLAYING THE GAME series, Brendon’s favorite color is RED. What is your favorite color?

Lorraine: Blue. I wasn’t planning on Brendon having a favourite colour, but in Bounce Down when he says to wear a red dress – I thought, why not?

9-

RWBR: On your Facebook and WordPress blog a red rose is featured. Can you share with readers the significance of the rose and its color?

Lorraine: Red rose is for love. I want to write about romance and HEA’s. So far, this series could only be describe as a tragic romance. But I am determined Suzie has her HEA, one way or another.

10-

RWBR: In PLAYING THE GAME, Brendon plays for the AFL team the Crocs. Tell us your favorite AFL team.

Lorraine: The Blues (which fits in with my favourite colour). They are one of the oldest teams in the AFL – they are now in their 150th year.

 

BONUS QUESTION:

RWBR: The clothes and jewelry that Brendon picks out for Suzie. Is it based on actual items you have seen or is it made up in your mind for the characters in the novels?

Lorraine: LOL – I couldn’t possibly make them up. I research every item on the net, then past a copy onto my novel page, so I can describe them accurately. I do this for my characters as well.

BOUNCE DOWN

Book 1

Synopsis

What happens when a first-time dominant and submissive come together?
The answer is a great deal of heartache. This is not a romance; it’s a story about one person’s need to control and dominate another.

Brendon is an AFL footballer who advertises on the internet for a submissive. Suzie, a secretary at Homicide Squad, is curious and answers his ad.

Theirs is a story plagued with anguish and subjugation, as they each struggle to find themselves; from the thrills of power play to the depths of self-degradation. They are both inexperienced in the roles they play and as this tragic relationship develops, Brendon and Suzie each realise they want more.

LL Excerpt

He walked into the laundry area and reappeared a few moments later. I noticed he had removed his sneakers. What I didn’t notice was that he was carrying a length of rope in his right hand. My eyes pulsed and widened.

“Trust me.”

He took hold of my hands and bringing my wrists together, tied them with the rope. He leaned towards me and with one finger, tucked a loose strand of hair behind my ear. I shivered inwardly at his gentle touch, followed so soon after his dominating actions.

“Stay!” He turned his back on me and walked to the kitchen, then poured himself a glass of water. He drank it slowly as he leaned against the breakfast bar. Our eyes met, yet neither of us spoke. His movements were relaxed and unhurried. Once finished, he placed it on the sink and then slowly sauntered his way across the room. The image of a panther stalking its prey came to mind.

“How do you feel right now, one word answer?”

That was easy, in a word, “Vulnerable.”

“Better, it’s a step up from nervous. Are you feeling aroused, yes or no?”

It was hard to admit, especially with him standing over me like he was. “I don’t know….”

“Yes or no?”

After a brief pause, I confessed in a small voice, “Yes.”

“Good, come with me.” In a controlled movement he brought me to my feet. He held my bound hands in one of his and grabbed the paperwork with the other. He headed for the stairs, pulling me along behind him. He was forceful, yet took the steps at a slow pace so I didn’t stumble. It was an overwhelming experience, heightened by the fact he didn’t speak, nor once look back at me.

I was surprised to see he was leading me towards the end of the corridor, towards his bedroom. The room was huge, almost making the king-sized bed appear small. The first thought that struck me was how dark it was compared with the rest of the neutral tones of the other rooms I had seen so far. Was this an insight into his hidden personality?

He placed the pages on one of the matching black bedside cabinets and then, stopping next to the bed, turned to me. “What is your favourite fantasy?”

My mouth dropped open and I mentally shook my head. I was definitely not prepared to reveal something so intimate, so personal.  But once again he gave me a hard stare, compelling me to tell the truth. “I don’t think I’m ready for that yet.”

He nodded as though he understood. “Then tell me something you would like me to do.” He gave me a wicked grin.

How could I put into words what I wanted, what I had always wanted to try? I recalled my few past experiences with the guys who had not been able to deliver the goods. Of course there was one who had been into it, but I hadn’t been up for the challenge at that stage.

“I want you to decide.”

“Fair enough, but first you need to….”

“Not more paperwork, I suppose it’s a contract this time?”

“No, no contracts, they’re not legally binding anyway. Our arrangement will be based on trust alone.”

“And the signed NDA.”

“That too. But what I was about to say before you rudely interrupted me, is you need to know your safe words. You need to have control and know how to bring any situation to a halt.”

I took a moment to digest this. “Why not just one word, won’t it be confusing with more than one?”

Book 2

Synopsis

What happens when a first-time dominant and submissive come together? The answer is a great deal of heartache. This is not a romance; it’s a story about one person’s need to control and dominate another.

Brendon is an AFL footballer who advertises on the internet for a submissive. Suzie, a secretary at Homicide Squad, is curious and answers his ad.

With the start of the football season, their relationship is public and Suzie finds herself caught up in the whirlwind of attending games and associated functions, being part of a select group known as wags (wives and girlfriends).

Brendon makes even more demands of her, to prove her total commitment to him. Suzie comes under the notice of Leon Graham, a football fan, who becomes obsessed with her, to the point where Suzie’s police squad become involved.

This standalone novel is part of the Playing the Game: 4 Quarters of Submission series.

LL Excerpt 
“He came to me then, kneeling on the bed before me. He grasped my shoulders, supporting me as he bent down for a deep kiss. It was sensual and gentle; not the type of kiss I was expecting. He lifted his head, his eyes watching mine almost like he was assessing if I was ready. I was as ready as I was ever going to be.

He stared at me with a smouldering look and casually hooked his thumbs under the shoe-string straps of my nightie to ease them off my shoulders, down to my elbows. He smiled wickedly as he eyed my now-revealed breasts. Not satisfied with me being half-naked, his fingers lazily pushed the straps lower, until they fell from my arms and the red silky garment sat in a pool around me.”

Hovered over me - with text - Getting Tackled

Excerpt #2

“So, how am I going to discipline you?”

“Why, I didn’t do anything wrong?” I backed away from him as I spoke.

“Come here, Suzanna.” He stepped forward and indicated with his finger, to emphasise his words.

I retreated another step, so I was out of his reach. 

It looked like our two weeks of normal relationship were up. But if I was honest with myself, a part of me liked the edgy side, never knowing when he would change from the fun, easy-going Brendon, to the one standing before me now.

I lowered my eyes, so I could not see the determination in his, and walked towards him, stopping inches from his body; the body which had power over me, the power to give me pleasure or, in this instance, pain.

“Look at me!”

I tipped my head back, to look up into his steel blue eyes.

He spoke softly, but with conviction. “You are mine and I don’t want to share.” He motioned my dismissal with a toss of his head. “Wait for me in the training room.”

I did not initially leave, instead stood looking up at him, hoping he’d change his mind. His eyes widened. Then he spoke louder, firmer, “Go now Suzanna, believe me, you don’t want me taking you upstairs!”

I glanced down and saw he was clenching his fists. It was then I understood he was holding his temper in check. Seeing this restrained force, I spun around and raced up the steps as quickly as I could. I was not sure how long I would have before he followed, but I wanted to be ready and hoped his temper had cooled before he came to me.

I didn’t have a watch on, but the length of time I had to wait seemed intolerable. It might have been half an hour, maybe more, but by the time I heard him enter the room, my neck was feeling very stiff from standing in my waiting position with my head bowed.

He stood before me and raised a hand to my chin, tilting it up. He stared down at me for a moment before saying, “Do you know why you are here, Suzanna?”

I swallowed hesitantly. “Because you told me to.”

He shook his head. “If that’s your answer, then it looks like we may be here a while.” Still holding my chin, he demanded, “What instructions do you have to follow when I discipline you?”
