#NewRelease and Update - #SexytoGo, Vol 2 (including Lip Service, by Yours Truly)

I had a stealth release this weekend. By stealth, I mean I hadn't quite gotten back on the promotional horse, so this might be the first time you've heard about the story. If you read Punishing the Messenger last month, you'll be  familiar with Kailee Chan and Damien Walker. If you skipped volume 1, no biggie–I made sure Lip Service stands on its own two feet.

Sexy to Go is a project spearheaded by the fabulous Eva Lefoy, and the two short stories I've contributed officially marks my return to BDSM fiction. I've boarded a train full of talented authors, all of whom know how to bring a bit of sizzle and spice.

As for where my story falls on the sexy scale, I’ll let this sample speak for itself. Below is the adults-only un-redacted version of the teaser above (you have been warned). 

“One day, I will see every inch of you.” He pressed his mouth under her ear. His teeth scraped her flesh. “Touch every inch of you.”
The light sting turned molten as he sucked. Then he tugged her demure neckline down and marked her cleavage. “I want to hear you scream when I bury my cock balls-deep.”
She whimpered.
“I want to keep you naked so I can touch you where I want, when I want.” With a groan, he tore his hands off her and stood. “But until I’m sure you’re ready, I’ll use that pretty mouth to take the edge off.”

P.S. Since Lip Service landed at the front of the file, Amazon's 10% preview should pretty much let you read the entire thing. Check it out, and let me know what you think!

#NewRelease and Update - #SexyToGo, Vol 1 (including Punishing the Messenger by Me)

Here's a confession–I've been a bit off my game on the promo front lately. What little zeal I had to hurl information into the void that is the interwebs flatlined around mid-January, when I reached an unprecedented point of depletion. Luckily, I had a lot of pre-scheduled posts and Tweets to carry me through the unscheduled hiatus, and I'm slowly dragging myself back on the proverbial horse.

Emphasis on slowly.

In the interim, I had quite a few things happen for which I should have (electronically) done a happy dance. I released a romantic suspense at the end of December titled A Christmas Together, which puts a bow on my Safe Harbor series. Not long after, the lovely ladies at Decadent Publishing compiled three of my paranormal 1Night Stands into a single print volume. A Witch's Night Out is available through Amazon and B&N, and my complimentary copy is in transit somewhere between Chicago and Rome.

Last but not least, the first volume of Sexy to Go came out. The brain child of the very talented Eva Lefoy, this anthology includes Punishing the Messenger, a short story that might end up marking my return to BDSM fiction (depending on how my current work in progress pans out). I'm riding the coattails of a number of very talented ladies, all of whom know how to bring a bit of sizzle and spice.

As for where my story falls on the sexy scale, I’ll let this sample speak for itself.

“Under different circumstances, I’d order you to your knees and have you earn my forgiveness.”
Her breath hitched at the proposition. She couldn’t help but imagine herself at his feet, his hand clutching her hair, her fingers unbuckling his belt. The way he surveyed her sent a shiver down her spine. When their gazes met, she felt her pulse on her fingertips.
“I told you not to look at me like that.”
Fearing he’d somehow glimpsed her fantasy, she bent her head and examined the hands she’d interlaced over her lap. “How do I look at you?”
“Like a lover, daring me to take charge.”

Without further ado, here's the rest of our sales pitch. I'm crossing my fingers our brand of sexy appeals.

Author Interview - Haley Whitehall (Valentine's Day Edition)

LVS Cover.jpg

 Haley is back for another round of grilling.  If you don’t remember, she was here a little over a month ago to chat about her book, Midnight Heat. Being a prolific writer, she has another new release to talk about today. This one is part of the anthology, Love, Valentine Style, and it’s titled Civil War Valentine.

1. Before we chat about your book, let’s start with some personal stuff. What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day memory?

Oh boy… I can’t think of any favorite memories… still waiting to get a box of chocolate and a bouquet of roses from Mr. Right. The first Valentine’s Day memory that comes to mind was baking a heart shape cake when I was a child. It was a chocolate cake with white frosting and chocolate chips on top. I was so proud to show off my cake, but before I could my dog found it and decided he needed the cake for himself!

2.  How did you come to be involved in this anthology? Did you know the other contributing authors beforehand?

I found out about the call for this anthology through a romance authors Yahoo group. I did not know any of these authors beforehand, but through the process of publishing Love, Valentine Style they have all become good friends.

3.  Onward to your story. I probably wouldn’t survive a day in the Civil War era, come to think of it. Does your heroine have a background that would make her more knowledgeable about life back then?

My heroine Charlie Bristol is well-educated. She works as a museum curator and has a Ph.D. in history. I’m sure she learned about the Civil War in the course of her studies and knows more of what to expect when she is thrown back in time.

4.  Aside from being the author of these Civil War valentines, what does Elliot do? When Charlie has her time-traveling dream, does she appear at his house or someplace else?

Charlie appears at her house so to speak. Elliot visits her while he is on leave thinking she is his beloved fiancée.

5. Let’s end on a more technical note. Are there any particular challenges unique to writing time travel romance as opposed to historical fiction?

Yes, I had to explain the time travel element. And I had to know how time travel affected both my hero and heroine. For instance, she travels back in time wearing modern clothes. Obviously that will pose a problem.

I’d like to thank Haley again for dropping by. For more information on this anthology, keep scrolling down. Comments are most welcome.


Love, Valentine Style (Civil War Valentine by Haley Whitehall)

Recently divorced museum curator Charlie Bristol comes to Seattle to set up a display at the Fine Art museum chronicling the history of Valentine’s Day. The director of the museum surprises her with a package of Civil War valentines from an anonymous donor. She reads the heartfelt messages and is touched by his words. Does such powerful love still exist?

During a nap she dreams she’s alive during the Civil War and meets Elliot Lowery, the author of the valentines who mistakes her for his fiancée Charlotte. She and Elliot negotiate the murky waters of wartime romance. When she wakes she’s still under the dream's spell and Valentine’s Day love is in the air, but Charlotte has no reason to celebrate. The man she loves died 150 years ago. Unless love works some miracle even time and death cannot overcome.
