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?”

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.

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.”

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?”

Excerpt

When he bent his head towards mine, I noticed he avoided my lips, instead going straight for my throat. As his mouth continued to suck like a vampire out for blood, I knew there would be lingering marks to show he had been there.

When he moved lower, I purred with delight as he parted my thighs and, with his tongue, pushed his way inside me. While his tongue seemed to lick every inch internally, externally his mouth was sucking and biting, 

bringing me to a heightened frenzy. My body seemed to have a mind of its own, thrashing about and squirming under the intense pleasure he was giving me.

All too soon, he lifted his head and smiled, no doubt, at my loss of self-control. I had assumed he would restrain me for my actions, but surprised me instead by positioning his cock before me. I returned his smile, then bent and spread my legs wider, giving him easy access to my now-throbbing sex.

“Very wanton.” He whispered the words, as he leant over to grip my hips firmly.

“Please, Sir. Please take me.” I tried to sound submissive, hoping he would heed my plea and give me what I was craving.

“My god, Suzie, you have no idea what you do to me.”

I didn’t get a chance to ask what he meant, as he wasted no time in fulfilling my request, by filling me to the hilt.

I matched his powerful thrusts, stroke for stroke, holding onto his shoulders as I pulled him closer. I studied his eyes, still fascinated to see their colour change to a beautiful ocean-blue, as he neared and then reached his peak.

The Beats in Rift by Ker Dukey  – Release day ~ June 13th

Synopsis

 

I was invisible, until they saw me.

When circumstance forced me and the Jacob twins to spend two weeks of the summer together, the bond we formed would impact us all, altering our lives.

Fate, entwining us forever.

They became my best friends, my family, my first love.

With their love came their father’s hate! Love is powerful but also painful and destructive when it’s torn between three people.

Author bio:

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active, I would want to change the script. I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction.

My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling too.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life, but when I do get down time, I love attending music concerts with my younger sister, who shares my reading soul, we are two peas in a pod.

5 – Roses – Strong Young Love
Shula Kelley is the strong heroine in this captivating series based around the year 2250 in Texas which has segregated from the United States.  Texas in this era has converted back to the old ways in which women were born and raised to be barefoot and in the kitchen.  They are controlled and heavily monitored, they are taught from birth to submit fully to their husbands without any learning, reading, writing or complaints of any kind.  Arranged Marriages is the way, the only way in this dark era only Shula decides to stand up and fight for her right to live, learn and Love. 
1811695wio5oh31xf
~Shula~  Jared seemed nice enough. He was painfully shy, quiet, and probably handsome.  He had disappeared after he took the death of Anna quite hard, so his father had deigned to fulfill it himself.
1811695wio5oh31xf
Jared is the luscious Hero that patiently waits for his intended bride from a pre-arranged marriage.  Jared is a smart and independent, a computer guru that contrives to make a name and a future for his intended without the aide of his father who is king of this generation.  His sole purpose is to see that his bride lives in comfort and is well satisfied while he seeks justice and the demise of his controlling father.
1811695wio5oh31xf
~Jared~  As much as he’d wanted Shula, as much as he’d always known that she was intended for him, he knew his father would take her from him.  She would have to be patient and he would have to be strong.

5 – Hearts – Couples – Soul Mates
This couple have a rocky start, yet they overcome their preconceived notions they are taught and start learning, teaching, and growing to love each other.   This Author has a way of bringing dark and humor together, you find yourself both stimulated and laughing at the same time.  The erotic scenes these two fight to share with each other are both enchanting and arousing.

~ Jared ~  ‘Hopefully he could make her repeat the sound she made right before he painfully pulled away.’
~Shula~  ‘The was so much importance placed on my purity, it made me angry, so I took care of it myself.   I used my fingers, then I moved to cucumbers and squash.’
1811695wio5oh31xf
There is so much more to this story and I wait anxiously for the next installment.  I need to see James the King, the father of lies, the shame of the devil himself get his penance.  I will be there waiting to read about the women who finally burn their bras and the family who rise against their tyrant of a father and come together finally as a whole.

Blog Tour ~ Tumbleweed ~ Author Julia Bramer

~DREAM CAST~



“Two men were infinitely better than one, an intoxicating combination if I could find it, and my greedy self-indulgence was boundless, my sexuality unleashed those many years ago with him. His shadow haunted me and shaped my obsession, the depth of my depravity deep and forged in the cafes and nightclubs and back alleys in a dozen countries with dozens of men. Once I’d started down that road, I couldn’t stop and couldn’t go back, a dark and insatiable impulse propelling me forward and driving me into the arms of strangers like the Mohammeds and into the sweltering barren desert.” Wavy dash Haley Wavy dash

Unable to cope with the loss of her first love, a charming and seductive Spanish soccer player, beautiful, headstrong Haley Hanson abandons love entirely. She seeks solace in the arms of strangers and fame, a tumbleweed rolling where the gusts of wind carry her, and she lands between a garbage bin of rotting food and a brick wall. Stuck in limbo and near death.

Will love destroy her or conquer all?

**Strong sexual content.**

We returned to the hotel after midnight and I immediately drew him a hot bath, adding bubbles from the upscale toiletry collection, and he let out a long sigh as he sank slowly into it, gazing at me expectantly as I hovered over him.


“You come, cariño?” he asked, gesturing for me to join him, and my pussy immediately jumped to attention.

I sat on the toilet and hurriedly removed my sandals and ripped off the tank top, my pulse racing as it always did when his luscious eyes turned seductive and mischievous.

“You do naked dance, mi amor?” he asked.

“Striptease,” I corrected, laughing, and he flicked bubbles in my direction, grinning boyishly.

“You do striptease?”

The suggestion made me hotter and I slowed down. I slid the jeans leisurely over my behind, turned away from him and bent over, giving him a good, long look at my ass in the skimpy thong as I wriggled out of the pants.

“Fantástico,” he murmured, and I spun to face him, fluffing my hair so it fell wildly around my face.

Then I slid my index fingers inside the panties, tracing them along my hip and the apex of my sex, and I plunged a hand inside, touching myself and licking my lips, enticing him with my tongue, and his eyes practically bugged out of their sockets.

I smiled to myself. My first striptease and it turned me on as much as it did him, my slit dripping with juices and my clit plumping and pulsing, and if I’d wanted, I could’ve made myself come in an instant.

I moaned softly, deliberately, and moved my hands up to my breasts, skimming the lacy fabric. I unhooked the bra and held it close to my chest, my hips swaying suggestively, and then I flung it at him.

He snatched it out of the air, his coordination soccer perfect, as was he. Delicious, tantalizingly hot, the bubbles swirling around his rib cage as he smiled his uniquely crooked smile and gazed lovingly at me with his soft chocolate eyes.

He was enjoying himself and so was I, and it was impossible not to love him.

I shimmied my tits in his face, making a show of it, and his hands reached for them, but I backed away.

“Mi amor, come with me,” he appealed.

And I did, quickly peeling off the thong and sliding into the tub. I straddled him and he grasped the nape of my neck, gently drawing me in for a kiss, his tongue passionate, loving and intense, a slow sultry dance. I drowned in that kiss, swept under by a–

The lock clicked. Baba was back. I silently cursed him, wanting to remain in the past, wanting to stay with Mikel. I remained immobile and kept my eyes closed, and I felt him looming over me, sensed the stark light streaming from the ceiling and smelled cigarette smoke.

Baby Girl

babygirl tease book 1

Synopsis

Erik does not believe in love and he doesn’t live in a mansion – he rides a motorcycle in a MC. He does not have an airplane. Erik is extremely confident, real, and knows what he wants. He wants a woman to submit; with no commitment for love. Erik will settle for nothing less than owning Kelli.

 When these two begin to spend time together, things begin to change; personalities, interests, and the need for affection. What happens is something that must be experienced by the reader. This book is, again, not watered down. This book has tremendous depth to those that are looking to find it. It will, upon completion, allow you into the minds, hearts, and heads of people as they develop a D/s relationship.
 Again, if you have always wondered about what a Dominant/submissive relationship is all about – less the airplanes, mansions, and billions, read Baby Girl. It’s real, it’s raw, and it’s got the hottest, steamiest real sex you can imagine.
babygirl tease book 1A
Can a love so strong that it can’t be broken develop between two people that don’t believe in love? What if the relationship is a Dominant/submissive one? This series is real, raw, and different than anything you’ll ever read. Read what develops between these two, and you’ll believe again. Prepare to be ruined from ever being satisfied by another erotica series.Erik Ead is the mid thirty something ever elusive bachelor. He suffered the loss of his father at a very young age and then his mother during a turning point as an adult. Both losses combined altered his emotional state of commitment.

Erik only seeks partners who are willing to be his submissive with no emotional attachment.

“Dominance, once experienced in a relationship, ruined any chance of me being satisfied in a non-dominant role.”

Kelli is the young twenty something college graduate. She is home for the summer working at her father’s car dealership. Just like Erik, Kelli also suffer the loss of a parent at a young age. Whereby, leaving her father to raise her all on his own. Kelli is missing something from her life that she didn’t realize until she found Erik.

Erik and Kelli’s relationship evolves but on unconventional terms. They each have needs that the other can fulfill. There are no hearts and flowers in this book, but what you will find are heart-felt struggles as two people come to terms with their meaning of love and commitment.

The first in a series of four books that is easily enjoyed as a stand alone.

Publication Date: October 31st 2013
Synopsis
 In this book, the second of three, we see the exposure of these two characters, as well as the other characters of Book I, to life…
 This Book is different than Book I in that it is more of the living, and less ‘thinking’.
 Someone steals from the motorcycle club, and Erik begins to question loyalties, life, trust, and his exposure to people – the few he lets in his in his life.
 These questions leave him seeking answers. Kelli sees changes in Erik and takes advantage of her opportunity.
 This is what everyone wished for in Book I and did not get to read. Erik and Kelli ‘doing’, and less ‘thinking’.
 Prepare for a ride like no other, this book takes us on a journey through the lives of many, primarily Erik and Kelli.

babygirl tease book 2

Erik Ead is Dominant. Kelli Park is submissive. Erik rides in a motorcycle Club. Kelli works at a BMW dealership. An unconventional relationship begins to develop that requires Kelli to be sexually submissive to the Dominant Erik. Erik is unforgiving when it comes to sex.

This book defines Dominance and submission as it happens in life.

If you’ve ever wondered what the lifestyle is really like, the Baby Girl series will clearly define it for you. Upon completion, you will know if you’re submissive or if you merely have a burning desire.

This series is not for the meek. Book II in a series of four can easily be enjoyed as a stand alone.

About the Author

Scott Hildreth image

I have somewhat of an old school approach to life. I enjoy listening to music, riding motorcycles, talking to people, reading, and writing. I do not watch television or drink alcohol. The majority of my time is spend researching materials or interviewing people regarding what I am writing about. My preference is writing a story that makes an impact on the reader. An impact that causes them to sit and think when they are finished with the book. To have someone finish a book and say, “Great book…” is fantastic. To have someone finish a book and say, “This book made such an impact on me that I immediately read it again, it changed my life..” is what I strive for. My novel, Broken People, is just that book.

I will never forget the first time I actually felt as if I had helped someone resolve an issue in their life. I was in middle school. It started then, and has continued throughout my entire life. I have always made myself available to talk to people and resolve (or attempt to resolve) issues that they struggle with.

Having an exceptional ability to communicate has always been a gift of mine, and I have enjoyed doing so. Telling stories has always been second nature to me. Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a child. I have written poetry, romance, self-help, addiction, alcoholism, codependency, technical, and satire. There isn’t a genre or a topic that I feel more comfortable with. I enjoy writing about whatever it is that I feel passionate about at the time.
Being open-minded and often seeing abusive relationships unfold, I have always been passionate about abuse, or the prevention of it. My main focus has always been people that are incapable of helping themselves, primarily women, children, and the elderly. I have talked to hundreds of women that were in abusive relationships, and assisted many of them in removing themselves from these relationships.

I try to focus in my writings to develop a story that makes people stop and think. To look at a subject or subjects from a different point of view. If I am able to get my point across, and make the subject entertaining to the reader, I feel that I have met my objective. I feel that I have tremendous depth as a person, and have had some great experiences in my life. To date, what life has offered me has been nothing short of spectacular. My opinions, point of views, and perspectives on matters are just that; an opinion. There isn’t necessarily a right or wrong in what I write, but more of a belief. I always believe in what I am writing, and I further believe that the reader may benefit from viewing it from the written perspective.

I hope that you enjoy reading what I have written as much as I enjoy writing it. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than knowing a reader enjoyed something I have written. Considering that, please take time to leave a book review if you have read something I have written.

I met this author via Facebook. You know how the suggestions pop-up for friends, showing you how many ‘friends’ you have in common. So I clicked and requested Author SD Hildreth to friend me, and by gosh…he did! I received a message thanking me for the friendship, and telling me about his upcoming blog tour. So I signed the form and now here I am. I just finished Baby Girl, Book 1 in the Baby Girl Series.
I like erotic novels. So I was excited and looking forward to this read. As I started reading, I just wasn’t into it. Erik is the Hero of the series. He is very intelligent, and has a degree in  Psychiatry. Thus this novel tends to get deep in thought and meaning very quickly. I am used to emotional reads, just not ones that speak to the brain and well as the heart. However the more I read, the more I became drawn to this novel.
Erik is your Hero. He is in his thirties, well educated, loves life, and feels free when he rides on his motorcycle. In Baby Girl, the reader is introduced to Erik Ead at the BMW Dealership. Kelli is the Heroine of the novels. Her father is the owner of the dealership. She is home from school for the summer. She just graduated KU and is planning on heading to Columbia University for a Business Degree. During Erik’s time talking cars and body art, he notices Kelli. At first sight he sees the promise and possibility in this beautiful woman to be his new submissive.
Both Erik and Kelli are not into ‘Love’ or long term ‘Relationships’. From the very beginning Erik tells her flat out it is about sex. That he does not do relationships. Which is fine for Kelli since she is only in Old Town, Kansas for the summer and working as the receptionist at her fathers dealership.
Both of the characters come from backgrounds where they grew up in a one parent home. Erik explains throughout the novel how growing up in this situation effects a persons feelings as related to sex. So be prepared to read a lot of deep psychological reasoning on what makes a person who they are and what makes them who they are. A lot of information on love, relationships, why couple separate and how to keep them together. Some of the rationale actually makes sense.
***
Kelli -‘Time decides who we have in our lives, our hearts decide how we feel about them, and our actions and attitude toward them determine how long they stay’.
Erik- (quote from novel Broken People, also by Scott Hildreth)
‘”…you don’t give someone your love. They take it. Love is taken. And, when someone takes your love, you will know it…”‘.
Kelli- ‘As we grow older we change. Our lives change. Patterns of living, what we deem to be important, and sometimes out beliefs even change’.
Kelli- Feeling loved is a large part of what we, as humans, need to survive. We yearn to be loved. The perfect love.
***
Think on those thoughts…that is just an example of the emotional and mental depth this novel will lead you the reader to mull over.
In the meantime, I recommend this read!!!
Yes, there are erotic scenes in the novel. They usually happen in public. So just be aware, this novel has graphic elements and not for the light-hearted romance reader. The novel develops the happenings between Erik and Kelli at a rapid pace. Before you know it, they have already been seeing each other  for six weeks. The novel will end leaving you, the reader on the edge of your seat wondering if they are in a relationship, have the two discovered love, and will she or won’t she (Kelli) go to Columbia as planned. So thank goodness there is a Book 2!!!

Characters are clearly detailed, background and present information. Writing is clear and presented in the voice of each Character chapter. Author creates a world that the reader can step right into the pages and sit at a table, movie seat, or coffee shop and watch all the interaction between the varied players in the novel.

Fun Facts: 
-In each of Hildreth’s novels the reader will find a character named, Heather.
- When this review asked Hildreth why his novel did not use chapter numbers, his reply was, ” I find them simple and boring.”
- When asked why Kelli removed her dress while waiting on Erik to arrive for their first official going out date, Hildreth’s response was, “A girl like Kelli is very uneasy and nervous about appearance with Erik, but not so much with others. She feels a need to meet him with an unwrinkled dress.”
- In reading this novel, I began wondering if Erik Ead was really the author, Scott Hildreth. When asked, he replied, “I’m Erik Ead, yes. Basically that’s true.”

Author Take Over Posts

1) Captured in Midnight Cove ,Excerpt

Well, I hope yer happy, Thayer. Ye ruined all our plans. Ye know, I did all of this for us, so we could be together. Ye and I are supposed tae be together. No’ ye and some foul human,” she snapped.

“Are ye daft, woman,” I asked incredulous. “Have I no’ fuckin’ made myself clear? I have told ye in every bluidy possible way that I want nothin’ tae do with yer arse and still ye continue pushing and pulling. Now even goin’ as far as tae torture my true Mate?” I strode toward her while I spoke, even as she backed away until her back was flat against the wall with nowhere else to go.

I had never hit a woman, but this one had pushed me so far that I was seriously considering it. I grabbed her shoulders tightly before continuing, “Rosalind, ye fuckin’ bitch, I have said it a million times, and I’ll say it again. I want nothing, nothing tae do with yer skanky, conceited, and conniving self. As far as I’m concerned, ye doona even exist. Yer nothin’ but my worst nightmare come tae life. Yer dead tae me. In fact, I’ll be pissin’ on yer grave when ye finally shrivel up and die. Doona look at me like that,” I said as she smirked.

I knew she was thinking that she would never allow herself to die. “Ye will die, Rosalind. Ye will either be killed by one of the others for just being yer nasty self, or ye will have chased everyone away with yer personality that ye will be so alone and beg for death. Honestly, for the first time, I wish we did no’ have that damn law about no’ killing within our pack because,” I leaned in close to her throat, “I’m just itching to tear into yer throat and end yer miserable excuse of a life.”

I shoved her to the floor and turned to walk over to where Tevin was now holding a limp Baylee. My heart dropped as I saw her battered face streaked with tears. She was unconscious, not dead. Thank ye, God, I thought.

“Ye will regret this, Thayer,” Rosalind screamed at my back. “I know ye will come crawlin’ back tae me. Ye will grow tired of havin’ tae be so easy with her. She’s breakable, no’ half the woman ye need in the bedroom.”

I laughed as I looked over my should at how pathetic she was. How had I never seen her for what she really was before? Was I really that blinded? Surely a part of me knew what a poisonous cunt she was. “Rosalind, lass, she’s a hell of a lot more of a woman in bed than ye ever were.” She glared at me and huffed as she got back on her feet and stomped past a struggling Sloan and out the door.

Standing in front of Tevin, I held my arms out to take Baylee from him. He handed her over gently, taking care to lean her head softly against my shoulder. My eyes roamed over every part of her I could see, taking in all the bruises, cuts, and wet and dried blood covering her tiny body. A deep growl erupted from my chest as I looked over at Sloan. He did all of this to her. I wanted nothing more than to march over there and rip his head from his body, but that would be too good for him. He deserved so much pain, torturous drawn out pain.

“Ye will pay for this, Sloan. This is no’ the end. Watch yer back.”

Adjusting Baylee as gently as possible, she whimpered against my shoulder, and her face contorted with pain. I had to swallow down the cry that threatened to burst from inside me. “My poor sweet, Baylee, please stay with me. I promise I won’t let anythin’ else happen tae ye. Just please…please doona leave me,” I whispered softly against her hair.

Lots of Love and Happiness,

x Brittany ,Kayla

Exiled From Midnight Cove

Due to be Released Early 2014

2) Excerpt

Here is an excerpt from book two in the series, Exiled From Midnight Cove. This has not been posted before. You are the first one’s to see it.  Enjoy!

I couldn’t believe my eyes. I followed Baylee’s scent to this location and saw her pressed against a building laughing and kissing Logan. I swallowed hard and blinked my eyes several times hoping against hope what I’d seen wasn’t real. My eyes had to be playing tricks on me, but my sweet Baylee was indeed in the arms of another wolf. The wolf I had entrusted her life with while I fought for mine. While I fought for us.

Anger swept through my body completely taking over all of my senses. I growled and knew my eyes were flashing. I felt my teeth lengthen, and my face contort. I narrowed my eyes as he spun around to look in my direction. There was immediate recognition in his eyes, and he was terrified. Rightfully so too because I was going to rip him to pieces until there was nothing left to identify as a person or wolf.

I briefly registered Baylee trying to get around him and him trying to keep her behind him. Did he think I would actually hurt her? Or did he think I didn’t know that it was, in fact, her he just had his paws all over?

I lunged forward and grabbed him by the front of his shirt, throwing him several feet into the air before he landed about ten feet behind me. I didn’t allow him recovery time and pounced on him. I grabbed his head and slammed it into the concrete parking lot, stunning him furthermore. He dared tae touch what was mine? Another head slam to the concrete. He dared tae put his lips on My Mate? I punched his face repeatedly. Never again will he be able tae take what was mine! He managed to shove me up enough for him to get a good punch to my left eye. I was temporarily stunned, and he took advantage pushing me to my back. He grabbed the front of my shirt, and landed several more punches to my face. I grew angrier that he dared to fight back when he deserved to be punished for touching my Mate. Using my feet, I kicked him off of me, and climbed on top of him. I grabbed his arm and bit into his wrist, tearing his hand from him. I snarled and tore his other hand off. Try tae touch her now, ye bluidy bastard!

Baylee screamed, startling me out of my rage for a moment. I turned to see her with wide eyes, tears streaking her face, and her hands covering her mouth. I felt a brief feeling of regret. Not for what I did, but because I did it in front of her. It’d been months since we’d seen each other. She’d had plenty of time to actually fall in love with Logan. What if she was in love with him?

My eyes traveled hungrily over her. She looked beautiful. I had craved the sight of her for months, had begged God to let me smell her one last time, to feel her again. This had not been the reunion I had in mind. The reunion I’d imagined was me finding her, her jumping into my arms, and then me kissing her senseless. Instead she had been with the wolf, I sent her away with. It was my own stupidity really. What kind of male sends his Mate away with another male? I only had myself to blame if they’d fallen for each other.

“Get off of him, Thayer! What is wrong with you,” her beautiful mouth yelled at me. Something was wrong. I wasn’t hearing just our heartbeats. Someone else was near. They’d probably called the police already. It registered in my mind we were out in the open for all to see. I looked down at Logan, who was still howling in pain, but the bleeding had already stopped. Stumbling a bit away from them both, I looked around for the other heartbeat I was hearing. Where was it coming from?

I closed my eyes, and heard Baylee run to Logan. The wolf in me growled with satisfaction when I heard him telling her to get away from him and not to touch him. The heartbeat had moved when Baylee moved. Realization hit me, and my eyes sprang open. Baylee was pregnant? I’d fuckin’ kill him for sure!

Lots of Love and Happiness,

Out of the Shadows review picture 2013

Excerpt

 Lark opened her eyes, taking in the pitch black hotel room, illuminated only by the moonlight. Sweat beaded around her neck and brow. Hair stuck to the nape of her neck. She sat up and looked around at the barely visible furniture. Movement by the window caught her eye.

Devon stood at the window arms crossed over his chest. His broad shoulders accented by the bright white of the moon. Lark stared at the fine plains of his bare back. She licked her lips taking him all in. Her body shuddered recalling the way he’d felt pressed against her – the way his lips had caressed hers a day ago.

Lark blinked the images away. Thankful for the darkness that hid the heat creeping across her face. Her throat parched, she pushed the covers back to get a drink of water from the sink.

The cool water alleviated some of the heat, and glided down her parched throat. She pushed the wet strands out of her face and walked to the window. Devon hadn’t moved. Preston and the three other guys lay sound asleep on the floor. They’d been kind enough to give her the only bed.

“Do you not sleep?” Lark joined him at the window. Her eyes glued to the door across the street. To think, her sister was in that room. Lark wondered if Sarah was okay. Was she sleeping? In pain? Would they hurt her? The list went on and on.

“It’s my turn to keep watch. Daniel said they wouldn’t leave till morning, but I don’t want to risk it.” Devon looked over at her for a moment his eyes slipped down to take in her plaid pants before he turned back to the window.

She’d gone with Preston to the store earlier to pick up a few things. They’d both needed the distraction. She normally slept in boy-shorts, but after her run in with Devon the other morning, and considering she was sharing a room with five guys, she had thought better.

“Oh, I didn’t realize you guys were keeping watch. I can keep a look out if you want to rest.”

“It’s okay. Preston will take over in another half hour.” Devon shrugged. “I’m used to the late nights; it’s actually been a little bit of shell shock to get used to days. As an EMT I worked the twelve hour night shift. Most incidents happen at night, you get used to being up all night. My nights off I usually spent out too. Vincent likes to party. I went along for something to do and keep him out of trouble.”

“I can see that about Vincent. I bet you’ve seen some interesting things on your job?”

Devon smiled, the moonlight lit his hazel eyes. “People never cease to amaze you. I’ve seen the traumatic to the dramatic.”

Lark laughed. “I can imagine. You see stories on the news every so often, where someone calls 911 for a cheeseburger, or something ridiculous like that.”

“Those are the people who don’t understand the absorbent bill they get in the mail for our services either,” Devon chuckled.

The smile lit his entire face. It gave her a rare glimpse of him. Lark wondered what had happened in his past to make him so distant. Slowly, he seemed to be opening up to her. She hoped he continued to do so.

“I’m sure you get interesting characters in The Cookie Jar.”

“Yeah, about half my customers are regulars. It’s kind of nice getting to talk to everyone. You’d be amazed what people tell you though. I’ve heard so many things that I really didn’t want to know.” Lark placed her hands on the windowsill, leaning forward. She peered out the sheer curtains.

Her thoughts drifted back to Sarah and Emily; at least they had each other.

“They won’t hurt her.”

Lark looked up at him surprised, taking a moment to register his words. She nodded and sighed, eyes darting back to the door across the street. The street seemed to stretch endlessly. It felt like miles separated them instead of mere feet. She would feel better once she could hold Sarah in her arms again.

“Have you ever thought about becoming a doctor or a nurse? You know taking your training to the next level?” Lark needed a distraction and she was curious about Devon.

“My bedside manner sucks.”

Lark met his smile. “But would you?”

Devon leaned forward before rocking back on his heels. “I don’t know. I never really thought about it.”

Lark nodded. “I always enjoyed baking. I never in my life thought I’d own my own bakery. But I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”

“I do like the blueberry muffins.”

“You guys do seem to have a sweet tooth. Well, actually, I’ve noticed you guys eat just about anything.”

Devon laughed. “It’s our metabolism. Especially when we shift a lot; it makes us hungry.”

“I can tell.” Lark looked over at him. “Do you do it often? Shift I mean?”

“I try to once a day; some days, like when I worked, I couldn’t. The wolf is a part of who we are. Shifting is important for our mental well being. As a rule, we try to shift three to four times a week. The only exception is when women are pregnant. The shift is harmful to the fetus since the body transforms from a human into a wolf.”

“Does it hurt when you change?” Lark couldn’t stop herself from asking.

“It’s a pleasure pain.”

“I imagine it’s exhilarating.”

“You really are genuinely interested aren’t you?” Devon turned to her eyes locked on hers.

Lark swallowed at the intensity of his gaze and lowered her eyes to the floor.

“I…I’m not trying to be rude.”

“I know.” Devon’s fingers grazed her chin, tilting it back up. “I’ve never met someone who’s been so understanding – who’s wanted to learn more.”

His thumb cupped her chin softly eyes glued to hers. She licked her lips in anticipation.

Slowly his face inched toward hers, their breath mingled. Her heart raced, and body scorched with arousal. His woodsy scent filled her nostrils. Eyes closed, his lips grazed against hers. Devon’s stubble scratched her chin; his lips so soft against hers.

Into the Unknown

Releasing January 2014

Bethany Shaw-EB

2wolves

Synopsis:

Gene has taken on the role of alpha after the devastating loss of his father. A war is on the horizon and Gene is determined not to fail his pack. He makes an unlikely alliance with Natalia, the woman his enemy is hunting. The more time they spend together, the more Gene finds himself drawn to the sexy, mysterious, she-wolf.

Natalia has lost faith in her kind. After being rescued from her captors by Gene’s pack, she wants to take her son and run far away from everyone. But, she knows she wouldn’t get far with her psychotic family chasing her. She agrees to team up with Gene in an attempt to end her family’s tyranny. As they attempt to work together, she finds herself wondering if she can truly trust him, or will his betrayal be the greatest yet?

Excerpt: Into the Unknown *Unedited*

“Wow,” Natalia breathed as they reached the top of the peak. She closed her eyes as the cool breeze ghosted against her face. Pine and oak fragranced the air, causing a smile to slide across her face. Opening her eyes, she surveyed the landscape.

Trees spread out for as far as the eye could see. The sun hung low, filling the sky with an orange pink hue. She spun around relishing in the fresh scent and the complete seclusion the trees offered. Crickets chirped and she could hear wildlife scuttling about. “This is amazing,” she said, focusing her gaze on Gene.

 “My father worked hard on the landscape back home, but I don’t think it will ever be this secluded.”

“It is nice at your ranch,” Natalia commented. “I grew up in the city anything outside the city limits is rustic to me.”

“And you weren’t around any other wolves?” Gene questioned.

“No. My mother taught me what she knew. Which was not much. Her only experience was with my father, Luis.”

“I meant what I told you. I want to help you – teach you are ways.”

Natalia moved to the edge of the hill and stared down over the edge. Taking the chance and trusting him was about as appealing as jumping to the rocks and brush below. Still, she wanted to believe him.

“How do you do it?”

Swallowing she held her breath as he came to stand next to her. “What?”

“The partial shift. How do you do it?”

Natalia turned to look at him quirking her brow up as he came to stand in front of her. His heels touched the edge of the cliff and she blinked surprised how vulnerable he was allowing himself to be.

Her breath caught in her throat as he placed his hands on her shoulders, his chocolate eyes meeting hers. Her pulse spiked and a shiver ran up her spine as anticipation rolled through her.

“Close your eyes,” he said quietly.

Her eyes widened, heart accelerated and she fought the urge to lean into him. The innocent touch seemed anything but to her.

“You need to focus, close your eyes,” he urged, seemingly oblivious to her discomfort and arousal.

Clearing her throat, she closed her eyes, needing to escape his gaze.

“Now, think about your wolf. Your sight specifically. Imagine you are running. The wildlife and trees are whirling by you as you survey your surroundings. Everything is clearer, sharper. Inhale the pine and oak, the dirt and leaves.”

Natalia forced her breathing to even out, letting his voice guide her as she imagined what he was saying. Warm puffs of air hit her face as he spoke. She let his voice soothe her until she found herself lost in his words.

“Open your eyes, Talia,” Gene said softly.

Fingers grazed her cheeks and gently cupped her face. Startled, she opened her eyes, gasping at their close proximity.

Blinking, she stepped back taking him in. His face appeared clearer, stubble poked out from his pores. Gene’s brown eyes stared at her allowing her to see her goldish eyes reflecting off of them. Turning away from him, she took in the leaves noticing the fine lines of each of them and the tiny insects that gathered on the trunk of a tree.

“All you have to do is focus. How do you feel?” Gene asked.

“Good,” Natalia beamed. In fact, she felt better than she had in weeks.
“If you follow the same mindset when you transition I think it will help. The important thing to remember is you are still in control even if you are the wolf. Embrace who you are don’t fear it.”

“I’m not afraid of-“

“Yes, you are. You’re afraid of what we are because you don’t want to be like Juarez. You can be the wolf and still be yourself,” Gene said. He took a step to the side. “The wolf doesn’t make us do anything we wouldn’t already do. It’s just like with humans there are humans that are just evil. The same rule applies to wolves. There are wolves that are just bad too. On the flip side, there are good humans and wolves. It’s what we do that defines us not what we are.”

Gene sighed as he looked over the edge of the cliff. “I’m heading back. The house is a quarter of a mile that way,” Gene said pointing as he turned in the direction they’d come. “You should try shifting.”

Natalia nodded waiting until she heard the dirt and gravel crunching beneath his feet to turn around. He’d helped her. Swallowing, she watched as he disappeared into the trees. Satisfied she was alone, she undressed and prepared to transition.

Synopsis

32 year old Sebastian Vanwell, was a very successful yacht broker, who always loved the design and architecture of a luxurious boat. His only addiction was being on the water. He loved it, he thrived on it, and he needed it in his life. After a very stable, loving child hood with only a few bumps, Sebastian married the love of his life. The one person that he knew would always be there. Julia was his rock, and he loved her more than life itself. Sebastian kept his addiction to the water under control, wanting to keep his time with his wife and son his number one obsession, that was until he saw her. This new addiction haunted him, the one compulsion that he couldn’t control no matter how hard he tried. Ysabelle Telle hit him hard, knocking the wind from his lungs. Coming from worlds apart, beautiful, dark complexion Ysabelle Telle didn’t have the rich, protected background that Sebastian Vanwell had. Ysabelle lived a life of hell, in poverty, growing up with a drug addict mother that never cared, and horrific living conditions. Ysabelle lived for one person and one person only; herself. She was pure perfection, her beauty along with a flawless body had men lined up, driveling over her insuring her success as a VIP. There are too many words that describe the effects when two diverse worlds like theirs collide. They both have too much to lose to get caught in the forceful pull, which could destroy them both. Warning sex/drugs/language. Mature readers only.
