#MidWeekTease from Twice the Temptation by @AuthorAriel

Today I’m taking part in the hump-day themed hop called the Midweek Tease.

Blurb:

One woman, two men.

Clarissa Stevens travels to beautiful Sanibel Island for her brother’s wedding, but the Florida destination is anything but a tropical getaway. Her life is in shambles, from her career, where she’s been recently downsized, to her non-existent dating life.

She’s prepared for the long weekend leading up to her brother’s wedding to be just another reminder of how truly craptastic her life has become. When her brother’s gorgeous best friends, the dominantly sexy Gavin and shy and brooding Trey, both show an interest in her, Clarissa thinks they might be the perfect distraction from all the problems that await her back home in New York.

Soon Clarissa learns that one man is fun, but two men? That’s twice the temptation.

Excerpt:

I tossed the items around until I found something I wanted to wear. The amethyst sundress I decided on was flowy, comfortable and it was cute enough to look like I actually gave a damn about my appearance. In truth, I wanted to roll into the resort’s tiki bar in yoga pants, a t-shirt and messy bun.

Despite the fact that I’d be spending the next four days in upscale accommodations for my brother’s wedding, I wasn’t in the mood to celebrate. My brother getting married underscored how truly shitty my life was at the moment. With the dress on and freshly applied makeup, I set out for the bar.

Although I felt somewhat cliched asking for it, I ordered a pina colada. I took a sip and savored the sweet freshness on my tongue.

“Well, I’ll be damned. Clarissa’s letting her hair down.”

At the sound of the deep melodic timbre I turned and locked gazes with Gavin. Several years had passed since I’d last seen him, but time hadn’t lessened his good looks.

“Gavin. Keeping tabs on me? Already? I see you’re still my big brother’s spy, I mean, best friend.”

“Still a little spitfire. I’ll have a scotch on the rocks with a twist.”

“Really? Take a look where we are,” I spread my hands wide and gestured toward the beach. “Sure you don’t want to reconsider your drink order? Maybe make it something a little more tropical?”

“Why fuck with something that’s tried and true?”

“Nice language.” I shot the bartender a sheepish look. He didn’t seem fazed by Gavin. He probably heard and saw a lot worse.

“You’re looking…” he paused and let his gaze do a slow tour of my body. “All grown up.”

I ignored the way my body flushed at his sensual gaze. It was probably due to the tropical weather and the alcohol, not Gavin’s aura of walking sex and darkly handsome looks.

“I’m twenty-five. I’m a grown woman, not a little girl anymore.”

“Believe me, that is completely obvious,” he said as he looked pointedly at my breasts.

Saturday Spankings – MFM Menage Twice the Temptation by @AuthorAriel

Today I’m taking part in the naughty weekly blog hop Saturday Spankings.

I’m featuring an excerpt from my forthcoming release Twice the Temptation, a MFM menage romance, out on Tuesday 2/13/18.

Read on for the blurb, excerpt and to of course continue hopping along to the other blogs taking part.

Blurb:

One woman, two men.

Clarissa Stevens travels to beautiful Sanibel Island for her brother’s wedding, but the Florida destination is anything but a tropical getaway. Her life is in shambles, from her career, where she’s been recently downsized, to her non-existent dating life.

She’s prepared for the long weekend leading up to her brother’s wedding to be just another reminder of how truly craptastic her life has become. When her brother’s gorgeous best friends, the dominantly sexy Gavin and shy and brooding Trey, both show an interest in her, Clarissa thinks they might be the perfect distraction from all the problems that await her back home in New York.

Soon Clarissa learns that one man is fun, but two men? That’s twice the temptation.

“Why are you so…angry? Agitated?”

“Maybe you just annoy the hell out of me,” I said sulkily as I swirled the ice in my glass.

“I have another theory.”

“Oh and what would that be?” I asked, not really caring to hear the answer. I was pretty sure I knew what he was going to say. James and his friends had always called me a brat. And I had been as a kid. I was the apple of my father’s eye, I’d had him wrapped around my little finger as far back as I could remember. He’d given me everything I’d ever wanted and I used that to my advantage especially when James had friends over and they wanted to hang out. I’d always had a crush on Gavin and I wanted to be near him, so I’d insisted that my daddy let James and his friends allow me to tag along with them to most places they went.

“Yes, I know exactly what’s wrong with you,” he said again, without elaborating.

“Yeah, I know. I’m a brat.”

“No, that wasn’t what I was going to say at all. Although the idea of taking you over my knee and paddling your ass sounds appealing as all get out.”

My nipples hardened and I let out a soft gasp.

“Gavin did you really just say that to me?”

Also today, my latest release Leather and Lace is out. I really enjoyed telling the story of two people who reconnect after thirty years and discover their red-hot chemistry.

 

Leather and LaceWhen Roxanna Chase finds herself alone in her tiny hometown of Haven, Indiana on Thanksgiving eve, she decides to do the one thing she always swore she’d never do: attend Chatterfest, an unofficial high school reunion held every year the night before Thanksgiving at Haven’s busiest bar, The Watering Hole. After a couple of cocktails and reminiscing with a classmate, Roxanna is overwhelmed, and a little turned on, when her old high school crush Nicholas Birch approaches her at the bar. He’s still as tall, broad-shouldered and sexy as he was thirty years ago. Since he’d dated her best friend in high school, Roxanna had always placed Nicholas in a box marked ‘hands off.’ When Nicholas admits he had feelings for Roxanna in high school, the two decide to leave the bar together and see what happens next. They quickly find that when old flames are rekindled, they can ignite into an inferno that refuses to burn out.

My Sexy Valentine #MSS128 Steamy Excerpt from Indelible Love by @AuthorAriel

It’s that time again, time for the weekly blog hop My Sexy Saturday.

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

Each week, the theme is sexy, but of course this week is extra sexy, because it’s all about Valentine’s Day!

Read my seven paragraphs and then be sure to drop by the next blog in the hop!

Indelible LoveBlurb

He has consumed my thoughts. His intensity has pulled me apart and put me back together again. I never thought I was capable of love. I never expected to find a mate, but I’ve claimed Ryan as mine and his love has left a permanent mark on me.

 

My Sexy Seven Paragraphs

Being a vampire had its advantages. I knew what he wanted from me without a word from him. He didn’t just want me, he wanted Mistress Lilah.

“You greedy. Insatiable. Little. Slave.”

I strutted toward him, an exaggerated switch in my hips emphasizing each word. My dominatrix gear was put away. Tonight I wore black skinny jeans and a black off the shoulder blouse.

Standing over him I could hear his heart racing. Adrenaline and lust coursed through him. I closed my eyes a moment and let the sensations of his intense aura wash over me.

It surged through me. While it was potent, I’d learned to deal with it. This ordinary human held extraordinary energy. Ryan didn’t fully understand the power he wielded.

Shit, I still had trouble wrapping my mind around the power he wielded.

He grinned up at me from bed as I slipped my pants off.

“Ooooh, you’re going commando.”

“Underwear is completely overrated.”

Indelible Love is out today. It’s the final installment in #TheIndelibleSeries. Start with the first story Indelible Lust, just .99 pennies!

#MSS125 My Sexy Shifter~Hot Excerpt from Red

 

Today I’m participating in the weekly blog hop My Sexy Saturday.

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

This week’s theme is My Sexy Shifter and the werewolf in Red is definitely sexy.

Red is an erotic retelling of Red Riding Hood, but instead of a big, bad wolf there’s a hot, lickable werewolf named Luke.

Enjoy the blurb and the seven paragraphs from Red.

Recently dumped and unemployed Jo May returns to her grandmother’s cabin on the Michigan Upper Peninsula to find her childhood friend Luke Herrera has transformed from an awkward lanky boy to a confident handsome man. As a snow storm rolls in off of Lake Superior the two become trapped together in the cabin. Alone in the close quarters, desires unfold and secrets come to light.  When Jo learns what Luke really is, can she accept that she might be snowed in with a dangerous mythological predator?

7 Paragraphs

He raised his head from my breast and reared back. He gritted his straight white teeth and released a guttural growl. And that’s when I saw them.

His teeth had changed.

They were bigger, the canines longer and sharper. He looked down at me. As our gazes connected, his eyes were luminescent. They glowed. A rich golden hue, like twin candle flames.

My heart raced and I tried to break free from his hold. I raised my hands to his chest and tried to push, but it was all in vain. He was a wall of solid muscle. Plus, a layer of sweat coated his skin, causing my grip to slide.

He began to tremble all over and a sound emanated from his core. I shrank away from him and managed to escape his hold. By the time Luke rolled off of the mattress and put his feet on the floor, his entire body was shuddering. He walked across the cabin toward the kitchenette.

I sat up in the bed and pulled the sheets up to my chest. One thing was clear; whatever was happening to Luke wasn’t natural. The way his eyes glowed wasn’t of this earth. It wasn’t human.

As if on cue with my thoughts, Luke’s bulky frame disappeared from sight.

In his place stood a furry four-legged beast. I recognized the thick black pelt and golden eyes of the wolf I’d seen in the woods hours earlier. Just like when I’d been in the woods, the sight of the beast left me oddly calm rather than frightened.

Now I knew why. The animal I was looking at was Luke. He was my friend. He was a gorgeous man and an incredible lover. My brain tried to process what my eyes had seen and what my gut was telling me.

He was also a wolf? Like a shape-shifter?

Indelible Claim Out Today!

Indelible Claim, the second book in #TheIndelibleSeries released today. I won’t blather on too much about it, instead I’ll leave you with the blurb and a saucy excerpt that is *NSFW*

I can’t resist him. I can’t deny the power this human has over me. Ryan Baxter has released a primal force within me. Although another wants him too, I won’t share. He belongs to me. For eternity.

Indelible Claim is the second novella in a  trilogy set around the complex love triangle between a Dominatrix vampire named Mistress Lilah, Jeremiah, the smoldering male D/s switch she frequently scenes with and Ryan, the sexy but tortured bisexual male sub they share but ultimately both want for themselves.

Excerpt

“Unlace me.”
He began undoing the laces on my corset. As he worked I connected my gaze with Jeremiah. He reached down and adjusted himself through his jeans. Plumes of desire unfurled around him, and the scent that normally surrounded him—a combination of espresso, cigar smoke and smooth cognac—intensified.
When Ryan had completely unlaced me, I reached for the corset, but he pushed my hands aside. Again, I knew I was slipping. That I’d let him call the shots even on something as trivial as removing my corset was telling. I’d never let anyone have that sort of control. Or any control really.
He unzipped my black leather miniskirt next. The garment slid off my hips and pooled at my feet. I stood in my boots, thigh-high stockings and garter belt. I’d seen no point in wearing a thong tonight.
His hands slid up my torso, to my breasts. He massaged my nipples and planted kisses along my back, trailing down to the hollow formed by the rise of my ass cheeks.
I struggled to remain standing. Literally and figuratively. I wanted to just straddle his lap and fuck him already. I didn’t need any of this touchy-feely shit. I was already treading dangerous, unfamiliar waters where he was concerned.
His hands slid down from my breasts along the sides of my waist, over the curve of my hips and one of them found its way to my clit. He rubbed the nub with the pad of his thumb. I felt his mouth leaving a hot wet trail on the swell of my ass cheeks.
What the hell was he doing to me? How had this human gotten this much control over me. I never let a man be this…tender with me. I fucked all the time, but I never let anyone get this intimate.
I turned my gaze to Jeremiah, who was watching me intently. The fact that he was looking at me and not Ryan spoke volumes. Damn it, he saw it too.
He knew me well, better than any other human ever had. We scened together frequently. My vulnerability, which would’ve just looked like a woman enjoying being worshipped by any other observer, meant much more to someone like Jeremiah. Someone who knew how I operated.
“Let me sit on you. I need to fuck you now.” I twisted out of his grasp. I pushed his shoulders back so they were against the couch cushions. I widened my stance and prepared to straddle him.
“Wait.”
“What, I can see that you’re ready. You’ve been ready.”
“I want you to face Jeremiah. I want us both looking at him while we do it.”
He spun me back around and I slowly backed onto his lap. Well, looking into Jeremiah’s eyes while I came would sure beat staring into Ryan’s. I didn’t need anything else making this situation more emotional. I fucked. I didn’t do romance and tender kisses.
