My novella is  an erotic contemporary romance filled with suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Of course there’s smokin’ hot sex too. Can’t have one of my erotic romances without it! LOL

 

 

 

 

 
Here’s the blurb.

When Steve Sanders became a US Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer nearly twenty years ago, he knew he’d have to put his life on the line with each mission. Unfortunately, only three days before Christmas, Steve has to come face to face with the real possibility he’d break his promise to his wife and not return back to her and their unborn child.

Jolene Sanders is nearing the end of a difficult pregnancy and looking forward to finally spending their wedding anniversary with her husband. However, her holiday spirits are shattered when a distress call from a sinking fishing vessel calls the Coast Guard into action and puts her husband’s life on the line once again.

 

 

 
sea-survival-liferaftLeft behind in a life raft during the rescue, Steve’s fate is now at the mercy of the wicked Bering Sea. Will this truly be his last mission, or will a miracle bring him back to meet his wife under the mistletoe?

 

 

 

 

Intrigued? Would you like to get a glimpse into the world of Steve and Jolene? How about the night they conceived their baby? Here you go!

 
(April 22nd, Eight months ago Kodiak Island, Alaska)

Steve’s hand slapped her ass one, twice, then three times. “Stop squirming, woman. I mean to have you naked and quivering all weekend.”

She bit her lower lip to prevent from crying out. Her husband knew exactly how to get her wet and ready to be ravished in seconds. She wanted nothing more than to be dominated by him twenty-four hours a day. Before his last assignment, they’d explored more of their fantasies including spanking. He had perfected his technique of the fast openhanded slap, sudden and sharp enough to make the loud cracking sound, but hard enough only to sting and make her ass a warm rosy color.

“Put me down and let me get out of these scrubs first. I’ve been on my feet for over eighteen hours and can’t smell very good.”

He tossed her onto the bed and pinned her there, arms above her head. His lips brushed over hers sending a jolt of electricity slamming through her body. “Mmm…you smell fucking fantastic to me, Jo. I need you now. Three months away from you and your body has been sheer torture.”

She lifted her head so their lips touched and slipped her tongue over his until he moaned. “It’s been hell without you, too, babe, but how about we move this homecoming party to the bathroom? You know how much I love to be fucked in the shower.”

He smiled the slow sexy grin that had captured her heart when they were kids. “Now you’re talking.” He kicked off his boots and sat up. Still straddling her body, he lifted his shirt up over his head while she worked to relieve him of his belt.

Her fingertips grazed over his ripped abdominal muscles and up his chest as he lowered his body back on top of hers. After kicking her shoes off, she wrapped her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck as his lips crushed hers, demanding and possessive.

He backed off the bed with her wrapped around his body. His arms held her tight against his chest as their tongues continued to slip and slide over each other. He kicked open the partially closed bathroom door as his fingers worked at the clasp of her bra under her scrub top.

She broke the kiss only long enough to lift her shirt over her head.
He pinned her back against the door and scooped both of her tits into his hands. He popped first one nipple and then the other into his mouth as he firmly kneaded each fleshy mound. “Mine.”

“Yes, baby. All yours.” Her fingers ran through his sandy blond hair as he sucked harder and harder, bringing both of her nipples to painful erections. She unwrapped her legs from around his waist as he held her up until her feet touched the floor. She reached between them to find the zipper. Her hands slipped under the waistband and shoved his pants and briefs down over his taut ass.

His jaw clenched and unclenched as her fingers dug into his flesh. “Damn, girl. You know what that does to me.”

“Uh huh.” She moved her hands from his ass, over his hips, and back between them to find his cock bouncing with need for her. Jolene’s fingers wrapped around his hard, throbbing shaft and squeezed as she stroked him. “And what does that do for you?”

“On fire. I want to bury it into your hot tight pussy, but we need to do something about these scrub bottoms.” His fingers jerked open the tie at her waist and shoved his right hand down the front to cup her shaved outer lips. Two fingers slipped through and into her.

“God, yes.” Her voice faltered as his thumb brushed against her swollen clit. She shoved her pants further down her legs until they dropped to the floor.

He removed his fingers from inside her and noisily sucked them. “Nothing tastes sweeter than you when you’re hot and horny.” He stepped out of his pants and tore off his socks.
She reached behind her to turn on the shower only seconds before he caught her up in his arms again. Standing over six inches taller than her five and a half foot frame, he always had to lift her up to keep them face to face. Not that she minded one bit. It was where she felt the safest, free to let just let go and submit completely to his every wish and desire.

He moved them into the two-person shower without breaking eye contact. His dark brown eyes appeared black in an instant, sending shivers up and down her spine. She held his gaze as he pushed her back against the tile and spread her legs wide. A moment later his cock slid into her already dripping cunt.

 

So, now that I’ve teased you a bit with my own novella, here’s our new cover!

Final Cover for Muses Xmas book

@HouseofTaboo Author Lia Michaels Reveals Her Brand New Cover #shortstory #erotica #LGBT

Hello my friends and welcome to Behind Closed Doors. Today is a special day around here. One of my alter egos is about to release her very first short story. It’s due out one week from today, September 6, 2013.  This week is the fun cover reveal along with a bit of information about the short story and the full novel it’s a companion to, sort of a teaser if you will.

Author Lia Michaels has spent the last year developing the story of two Native American men who just so happen to be eagle shifters.  Of course that’s not all. One of them is the legendary Great Thunderbird and the other is his Chosen Mate. Together, it’s foretold they’ll save their people.  Unfortunately, it takes quite some time for the soul mates to find each other and when they do, they’re plagued with old prejudices that just may keep them apart.  While one is accepted by his tribe for who and what he is, the other must hide his true nature for fear of being ostracized by his own family.

Here’s a bit about their story

Ethan Quaderer is the Great Thunderbird, the creature of Native American legend. He grew up knowing exactly who and what he was thanks to his grandfather. At a very young age, Ethan could merge with the bald eagles and soar with them high across the land. Eventually he would learn to shift completely from human to one of them…only larger and more powerful. His destiny as the Great Thunderbird was to find his soul mate and together they would save their people.

Abraham Tuttle didn’t grow up in a household where being different was acceptable. For years he hid the fact he was “berach” or Two Spirit. For many Native American tribes, being Two Spirit is considered a blessing. It’s actually a third gender classification, not male or female, but both. Two Spirits are often honored and revered, considered to be highly spiritual and often take on leadership roles within their tribes as healers.

Where Ethan’s spirituality and Two Spirit nature were embraced by his family, Abraham learned early on his would be shunned by his family and many others within his tribe. He kept his true self hidden and did his best to fit in, all the while dreaming of the Great Warrior who would someday rescue him from all of it. He dreamed of courting eagles night after night. Their majestic free fall toward the ground took his breath away each and every time. It was in those dreams the Warrior would come to him as the Great Thunderbird and claim him as his mate.

Forbidden Destiny is the companion short story that gives you a glimpse into Abraham and Ethan’s dreams and a bit of their future after they finally meet while in Army Ranger School.  While their entire story will be told in Call of the Thunderbird (Fearless Love), this portion of their tale is only shown here in the short story. The characters will mention it from time to time, eluding to their vivid dreams of each other and the courtship rituals they experience with the other raptors.    Lia wanted to give readers the opportunity to meet Abraham and Ethan now so that by the time December rolls around, they’ll want to know more.

Let’s start things off with that and reveal the cover for Forbidden Destiny…

@mtnmoxiegirl Reveals the Cover of Her Memoir #FreeFall

Welcome back, peeps! I’m excited to have one of my dear friends and fellow author Amber Lea Easton here today to reveal the cover of her soon to be released memoir Free Fall.  Here’s the blurb of this labor of love.

One moment is all it takes to change a life forever.  In one instant—in my husband’s final act—he stripped away my identity as wife, stay at home mom, and best friend. In one moment our world crumbled from beneath our feet. He’d been the center of our universe, but then he was gone.  Everything I ever believed to be true unraveled before my eyes.

 Free Fall is our journey of piecing our lives back together again—overcoming children’s anxiety as we traversed the brutal grief and trauma process, learning to say the words “widow” and “single mom” without cringing, surviving the fall out with friends and family who simply couldn’t understand our journey, triumphing over the stigma of “suicide”, forgiving my husband, and finding peace after chaos.

Grief is a dark journey, one often tainted with judgment and false perceptions. Add the word ‘suicide’ to the mix and more complications arise, both internally and externally.  This memoir is intended for anyone who may be facing their own tragedy and feeling alone, hopeless, confused, scared, and misunderstood. This story is for other widows, widowers, survivors of suicide, family members or friends of one who mourns, or anyone who needs encouragement that there is another side to grief. There is. We’re there now. We’re looking back and holding our hands out to you saying, “hang in there, you’re not alone, and you’ll get here, too.”

 

Can you imagine having to try to go on living without your rock, your soul mate? It’s absolutely my worst nightmare and my dear friend has had to live it. Not only has she had to get through each day missing the love of her life, she’s had to do it and still stay strong for her kids. Being both mother and father to them and keep up with the demands of her writing career has had to be a humongous challenge. I don’t know how she’s made it through…but I’m grateful she has. Without her I don’t think I’d have made it to the point where I’m at in my writing career. She’s been my cheerleader, confidant and a shoulder to cry on when things just didn’t seem to go right no matter what I did with my writing.  So when she let me know she was ready to reveal the cover of her memoir, I jumped at the chance to feature it on all of my blogs. I want to show her that I admire her ‘moxie” and know all of you will too.

So without further adieu…

#CoverReveal From @cattell_jo and Wicked Muse Productions

Hello my peeps! I’m participating in a cover reveal blitz for one of my author friends, Jo Cattell. I met her through a mutual friend the Wicked One herself, Leanore Elliott and the group she started to gather up her favorite readers and authors in one spot. There we laugh and cry together, share our ups and downs and of course our new releases. All of us firmly believe in authors supporting fellow authors and that’s why we’re here today.

In Another Life CoverIn April…wow, just a few short days now…Jo’s new book will be released on Amazon from Jaden Rose Press. In Another Life follows the intense, all consuming love we’ve all felt as teens. Well, some of us get to feel that as adults too. That’s why this book will appeal to all ages. First take a look at this beautiful cover…

 

What do you feel when you see it? Can you feel the emotions between the two? Does it bring you back to a point in your young adult years when being with “the one” was all you thought about?

You can’t deny it. I can tell from here. This cover has you HOOKED!  Me too!

 

Now stop staring at that cover and read the blurb Jo sent to share. If you weren’t blown away by the cover alone, this blurb will take you over the edge. In Another Life lets us get lost in a sweet romance that will warm your heart and leave you begging for more.

Sixteen year old, Annie Kane was dumped by her last boyfriend. It took a long time for her to agree with her friends and find somebody new. When Jim Osborn, the class clown shows up with his best friend, Annie realizes that there’s is something different about his friend, but she can’t figure out what.

Nate Cruz wasn’t like anyone she’d ever known. He’s funny and down to earth, but he also suffers with low self-esteem from being in and out of the hospital.

After Jim tries to force himself on her at a party, Anne finally sees him as he really is and decides to end it. She and Nate become best friends. Then, a kiss changes it all.

With Nate, she sees what love really means. She learns how wonderful life can be and how at any time, things can change without warning. If she’d stayed in her safe, little world, Annie would have missed her chance at love. But because of an irresistible attraction for a boy, she just couldn’t forget? She finds out what she’s really made of and what’s it’s like— living in another life.
