Sunday Sneak-Peek

Okay, so I'm sneaking in a last-minute post today. I wasn't supposed to; I really didn't have the time, but I do so much want to share something special with you. Besides, it'll give you another chance to enter to win my contest in the Howloween Blog Hop. All you have to do is comment with your name and email to enter. Details are on Friday's post (Oct. 26). Good Luck!

On November 15, I have a new novella coming out entitled Office Work. This story is unlike any I've ever had published. Why? Let's put it this way, romance is on the very back burner here. We're talking m/f/f/m/m. This story is meant to melt your clothes off and that's about it. But hey, we all need a good quickie every now and then, right?

Office Work is super short (around 6K), super hot, and perfect for those few minutes you have for lunch break. I am sporting an evil grin, however, thinking of what kind of shape you'll be in when you return to work after reading this story.

The premise behind this story began with a Flash Fiction challenge on the Changeling Press yahoo loop: Someone is talking dirty on the phone at work and you overhear. What do you do? 

Well, I imagined Roger, a hard worker, overhearing his co-worker. This is only the beginning of what transpires. Enjoy this sneak-peek taste of what to expect from the employees in this office...

(Warning: Explicit Excerpt)

"I want you on the floor, your head between my legs, your mouth eating out my cunt."

Roger blinked and peeked around the corner office he'd just passed. There sat Melinda, proper as ever, a cell phone pressed to her ear. He'd never figured her as one for phone sex. When she continued to sit still, yet moan as if she really wanted her pussy licked, he had a wicked urge to help her out.

"Yes, honey," she spoke into the receiver. "Just like that. You can fuck me later. Keep licking. Umm..."

Her words were right, just...not every enthusiastic. You had to be enthusiastic to have phone sex, or else what was the point? He cringed when she moaned again. Even that didn't sound real. No, to let her continue in this monotone would be a sin.

He snuck in, closed her door, and waited for her to turn around and acknowledge him. When she didn't, but continued to direct the unknown person on the phone, Roger'd had enough. He spun he chair around, making her gasp. He shook his head in warning and dropped to his knees. He liked that he'd shocked her. Behind her prim glasses, her big, brown eyes stared at him like a deer caught in the headlights. 

"Roger," she scolded silently but stuttered into the phone, "Oh...No, sorry. I'm here. You are, ah, so good." Roger chuckled at the way she exaggerated the word so

"I like it when you do that," Melinda said into the phone. "You know. When you, um, stick your tongue in me."

Oh, he could not wait to play out her words. Locking eyes with her, daring her to stop him, Roger yanked her hips to the edge of her chair, shoved up her dove gray business skirt and pressed his mouth right up against her pussy.

"No, stop! No, not you. You can keep talking. I mean you can't...oh. I don't...oh. My. God. Yes!"

Roger held her hips as she put up a struggle, but she couldn't fool him. Talking trash might not be her thing, but the words had an effect on her. Her panties were soaked with her juices, and he licked her hard. Once she stopped fighting him, he pulled aside the underwear and let his tongue lave her very tasty slit. 

Her breathing kicked up a few notches and instead of pushing hm away, her long fingers tugged on his hair, urging him for more.

He readjusted both of them, ripped the panties, and set himself to feast. "Keep talking," he growled against her. "I like your voice."

"Oh, yes. Umm, that feels so fucking good. I like it when you flick my folds." He followed her verbal directions, half-heartedly wondering if these came from her or from the unknown jack-off. She whimpered when he hit a sweet spot and he decided he didn't care. If it'd make her melt under his tongue, he'd take anybody's direction. 

"More. Yesss. Now my clit. Suck it. Take it between your lips and --" Her words ended on a ragged groan when Roger inserted a finger into her tight, dripping cunt. God, he couldn't wait to fuck her. Knowing someone heard what she felt -- what he was doing to her -- turned him on like nothing else had. 


I hope you enjoyed the snippet. Tune in next Sunday for another sneak-peek of Office Work, and don't forget about the blog hop!

Sexy Saturday

Hi again! This is day two of the Howloween Blog Hop. Please see yesterday's post for details on the hop and the contest I'm offering. Basically, if you want to enter to win one of two $10 gift certificates I'm giving away, is to leave a comment with your name and email. 

Typically, on Saturday's, I try to post sexy pictures for your enjoyment. Today is no exception. 

Last year I wrote a futuristic erotic trilogy - Malathix Soul. Come on, meet a few of the aliens from the planet of Malathix. When they came to Earth, they lost something very vital to their stability. It takes a special woman to balance these shifting men. One has trouble finding his woman, one doesn't understand why his woman is so important, and one has a hard time holding onto his woman.

Meet Space Lord Theradon. 
He's almost out of time when he finally catches Laya. 

Meet Theradon's brother, Thorn. 
He never agreed to sign up for this shit.

Meet Camden, Theradon's best friend. 
He thought he'd found his woman...

Enjoy your Saturday! Visit the Howloween page, leave me a comment with your name and email for a contest entry, and please note: Tomorrow's post (Sunday), for those of you keeping tabs, will be running pretty late. Check back in the evening.

Thanks for stopping by

Howloween Blog Hop Starts Today!!!

Happy Friday Everyone, and welcome to the Howloween Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop! Before I get into the really fun stuff, let me tell you about my part. Beginning RIGHT NOW and lasting through midnight, October 29, 2012, you will have the opportunity to win one of two $10 gift certificates, from me. These GC will be for Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com, winners choice. 

How to enter: Comment on any of my blog posts dated October 26 through October 29, within these dates, with your name and email, and you're entered. That's it. I will accept one entry per day, so feel free to check back through the weekend. Please also be sure to leave me your name and email so I can notify you if you win. When the contest ends, midnight Oct. 29, I will collect all the valid entries and randomly choose 2 winners. I will then contact the winners between the dates of October 30 and October 31, and these lucky winners will be publicly announced on my blog on Friday, November 3.  Any questions at all, please ask before the contest ends!!

Now, speaking of hops, I'm going to start this one off with a great big hop - of the frog variety. I've recently had a release with Changeling Press entitled Serena's Prince, as part of their multi-author series, Forever Wicked. My tale is a take on the fairy tale of the frog prince. See, I'd always wanted to love the story of the frog prince, but the attitude of the girl and the fact that once she throws the prince, they declare everlasting love, always bothered me. If she's been unkind, she should be punished. If she tosses a prince, he's not about to fall into her arms. Maybe bind them to the bedposts first, but you get my drift. 

From these musings, Serena, and her frog-turned-prince, Prince Rennick, were born.

The following is a never-before seen excerpt from this tale, with a taste of BDSM and voyeurism/exhibitionism. Please, enjoy. 

Forever Wicked: Sernena's Prince, currently available from Changeling Press. 

Soon available at Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and allromanceebooks.com 

Erotic novella, adult fairy tale, paranormal, shape-shifter, BDSM, voyeurism/exhibitionism. 


Rennick leaned over and took one of Serena's breasts into his mouth, biting as he did so. “I still want to fuck you, Serena, many, many times before night comes. Don’t dawdle. I know you were close.” He worked her fingers back into her pussy and pumped her hand for her. “Take over,” he told her. “Fall apart in my arms while dear Henri watches what he cannot have right now.”

With the encouragement of both men and their expectations, she opened up and let go. She kept her eyes on Henri and admired his handsome body and recognizable actions. He’d spit into his hand periodically and fist his cock, pulling and jerking to a point she thought must be painful, but he didn’t stop. Her mouth watered, and she imagined having him here, too, with Rennick. Maybe she could suck Henri’s cock while Rennick… what would he do? Her mind flipped through possible positions, and she decided she liked the idea of sucking Henri’s cock while Rennick was beneath her, his own cock filling her pussy.

She placed a foot on the edge of the bench and made sure she was as open as she could make herself. She jerked when Rennick sucked hard on her breast. At the same time, she curled her fingers inside her and worked her thumb furiously over her extended clit. Henri nodded and pumped his cock harder. The myriad of sensations swamped Serena, and she came on a keening cry, making the birds in the trees take flight.

She’d barely had time to finish her orgasm when Rennick growled, “Stand up on this side of the bench, lean over and place your hands on the seat.”

She hurriedly did as he asked, responding to the impatience in his voice. He flipped her skirt to her waist and struck her bottom with the palm of his hand.

“Ow! What was that for?”

“For fighting me a moment ago when you saw Henri. I knew you would, but you have to remember you’re mine. Your body is mine. I don’t care if the entire castle comes by to see us fuck. It will be my decision, not yours. Understand?”

“Oh, Rennick, I don’t know?” Why was he bringing this up now? Her pussy throbbed, wanting another release. He hadn’t let her ride out her orgasm like she usually did.

He smacked her ass again, and she bit her lip to keep from crying out. Why was she allowing him do this to her? She’d never let any man do whatever he wanted. Not before last night, at any rate.

He rubbed his hands hard over her ass and down her thighs. When his fingers snaked between her legs and teased open her slit, she looked over her shoulder at him.

“What’s your response?”

His eyes bored into hers, and she knew everything he said was true. She would let him do anything. She wanted to see the smile on his face, hear the praise from his lips, know that she alone could give him what he needed.

“Yes, my lord,” she whispered. And there it was. His lips tilted up and his smile made her heart sing.

He placed kisses over her bottom and spanked her again, but it wasn’t as hard as he’d done the night before. After he spanked her, he rubbed the spot, kissed it, then tickled her needy pussy. He did this so often her knees trembled. “Please, my lord,” she begged. “Please take me.”

He set a hand on her back, pushing her chest down and kicked her feet wide. He guided his cock into her entrance and thrust hard. She cried out, her walls spasming around him as he filled her up.

“Serena, watch Henri,” he whispered.

With dazed eyes, lost in the feel of him sliding within her, she lifted her head. Her gaze locked with Henri’s and Serena gasped. He looked near his own release, his tight fist pumping his cock rapidly while his eyes seemed to eat up her and Rennick’s actions.

“Don’t wiggle, Serena. Just let me fuck your pussy. You are so fucking tight. Henri will come soon. Watch him.”

No problem -- she couldn't take her eyes off the man. As Rennick increased his thrusts inside her, Henri bowed his back, stiffened, fisted his hand tight at his base, and came with a howl. Ropes of white cum shot into the air and the bushes nearby. Little drops clung to his cock and coated his hand as he continued to slide his fingers over himself. She opened her mouth and licked her lips, a new desire overcoming her to clean him as she'd cleaned Rennick earlier.

Tuesday's News and Updates

Much news to share today!

  • First, I am officially - here on my blog - sharing the news that Forever Wicked: Serena's Prince, received a Lovely Rose review from Romancing the Book. This is equivalent to a 4 star rating! The reviewer states, "As I read this adult fairy tale, I felt myself experiencing the joy of reading the same story as a child and hoping that love would beat all." This part of her review really touched me because, as you may know if you follow my back stories, I picked the tale of the frog prince specifically because I remember this as child and wanted more. Of course, my version is a very erotic side of the story, but the fact remains I wanted to expose a love story between the woman and the frog-turned-prince. Not just a you-threw-me-but-I-love-you kind of story.

  • I've talked about Flash Fiction Friday's on the Changeling Press Yahoo group before. If you've not stopped by yet, what are you waiting for? Fun things happen, and transpire, and are inspired during these weekend romps. In fact, I have a new release in a few weeks that stems directly from one of the flash fiction weekends. The upcoming story is Office Work, and it comes from the weekend of August 25. The theme was: you overhear someone talking dirty on the phone at the office. What do you do? Read my Coming Soon page to find out a little more, and click here to read the first snippet of this very short, very hot, very erotic tale, where every and anything goes in this office. 

  • Want to get your books at a discount? Changeling Press is always offering discounts on their books.
