Blissful by BJ Harvey Cover Reveal & Giveaway

Title: Blissful Surrender ( Bliss #3)
Author: BJ Harvey
This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.
**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided by the one woman strong enough to threaten his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**
Like the other books in the Bliss series, this book can be read as a stand alone. There are common characters in the books but it is not necessary to read the first two books in the series to read this one.

“Sean, I—”

No. She’s not getting another moment to talk herself out of this, out of us. She’s been running for way too long. This time it’s for keeps. This time, I’m not letting anything come between us—not my brother, not her mother, not her job and not some convoluted idea she gets in her head that she is not the submissive I need her to be. I’m sick of the bullshit, and this time I want what is mine.

And Sam is mine.

Wrapping my arm around her waist, I pull her body tight against mine and slant my head, slamming my mouth to hers as she gasps in shock. My hand grabs her blonde ponytail, holding her in place. Her tight muscles relax when my tongue rolls over hers as I set out to rediscover the beauty that is Samantha Richards. Her taste is intoxicating, and I find myself wanting to consume her, to lose myself inside of this gorgeous woman whose mind continues to deny the connection between us. In this moment, I want to show her everything I am, everything I can do to her, every possible way I can make her feel. I know I’m losing control, but with Sam, I don’t care.

I press my hips into her, pressing my hard as steel cock against the softness of her stomach. I feel her arms move between us, and I expect her to push me away, but she fists my shirt and pulls me closer, thrusting her hips into me in silent invitation.

She may not be able to admit the words, but she can show me with her body, with her actions—she can no longer deny the spark between us.

I pull my head back slightly, raking my teeth against her bottom lip. I scan her face, looking for any remaining uncertainty. If she said no it would hurt like hell, but I’d let her go. Again. But all I can see are swollen, pink lips and half-cast eyes full of want, and I know in that moment that I have my Sammy back. Even if it’s just for a few moments, a few hours, or maybe the night…if that is all I get with her, then I’ll take it willingly.

If this is the only chance I get with her, I’m going to make it count. I’m going to draw it out and make it last until neither one of us can move; until neither of us can breathe.

“You were saying?” I ask, raising an eyebrow.

Synopsis

Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something worthwhile never is.

Whoever said money couldn’t buy happiness has never starved a day in their lives.

 

My name is Aria Valencia, a third year classical music student at the university, and I was down to my last dollar. Some nights, I seriously considered working at the rippers just to make ends meet, but the thought of my dad’s spirit–God rest his soul–scowling at me while I danced up on some drooling degenerate was enough to turn me off the idea completely.

 

And then one night, chance came knocking on my door under the guise of the Midnight Society, a secret cabal comprised of the most wealthy and influential souls this side of the Universe. Their leader was a man named Shadow, who was equally enigmatic as he was gorgeous and, for some mystifying reason, had his dark brooding eyes focused on me.

 

Seduced by the promises of fame and fortune in exchange for a seemingly innocent request, I soon found myself drawn into a provocative world filled with both vast riches and unending lies and it didn’t take long for me to realize what being a part of the Midnight Society actually entailed: shiny things, sensual romance, and dead bodies.

 

Being with Shadow came with a terrible price, one that I wasn’t willing to pay. There’s a dark side to every love story, and this one was mine.

His presence cast a hush throughout the gardens. Shadow strolled towards the three women on their knees, stalking them with an animalistic grace.

He was ominous, yet electrifying and I found myself trembling just standing in the same vicinity as he was.

“Your bride awaits you Shadow,” Calisto said to her brother.

I glanced around and noticed that everyone had their head bowed in reverence of this man.

It was disconcerting and this made me panic.

This had to be a cult; there was no other logical explanation in my mind. Any second now, this Shadow fellow was going to pass out the Kool-Aid and we were all going to drink it and die.

There was still time for me to flee. I could pretend to use the bathroom and then sneak out the window or something. I had no idea where on the map this estate was, but that didn’t matter. I needed to escape and I could figure the rest out later.

I looked around to see if anyone else was watching me.

Damn it, indeed someone was. Calisto’s eyes were deadlocked onto me.

I panicked and almost let loose a scream, but managed to contain myself. Thank God for the mask I was wearing, which hid the expressions on my face.

Calisto smiled and winked at me, which I thought was a bizarre thing to do. I had no idea what was happening or what to expect, but I desperately wanted to be away from here.

Beware by Shanora Williams Cover Reveal

Synopsis

Ace is bad.

Very bad.

After losing my brother, I know I should stay away. So why can’t I?

He’s irresistible. He’s confident. He’s amazing… but he’s dangerous.

He was there the night my brother was killed. He watched it all go down.

I should stay away. The things I saw weren’t acceptable. They’re not even legal.

I should want Ace as far away from me as possible—I should consider him a monster and a threat to my life—but something keeps drawing me back. Something keeps bringing me to him. Something is making me… weak for him.

He’s warned me many times to stay away. He’s even threatened me. But I know, just as much as he does, that I won’t stay away.
I won’t until I get answers.

But there’s one thing wrong with getting too many answers. It leads to lies. It leads to trouble. It leads to danger. But worst of all, it leads to me falling deeply and madly in love with him.

I’ve gotta be out of my mind.

Beware Teaser 2

Excerpt

Footsteps start up the complex stairs. They’re heavy. Slow. I try to control my breathing but it’s hard. The room that was once my sanctuary – my get away—now feels like a trap. A prison. I can hardly breathe.

Sealing my eyes, I listen as his footsteps get closer to my door until finally he stops. It’s quiet for a moment. I think he’s got his ear to the door, wondering what I’m doing.

Then he bangs on the door and I gasp. I don’t get up, though. He can’t get in. The door is locked and the chain is on. I don’t think he’d be dumb enough to kick the door in, knowing I have neighbors. Good thing they’re nosey. They’ll come looking for the noise immediately.

“London, I know you’re in there! Car’s in the parking lot.” His voice is no longer calm and casual. It’s angry and demanding. “Open the door.”

I don’t say anything, but I do stand and hold the knife in front of me just in case. I slowly walk out of my bedroom and towards the living room.

“Open it or I’ll kick it down. I don’t give a fuck who sees me.”

I gulp and gasp at the same time, which causes me to burp. And it’s pretty loud. Loud enough for Ace to hear.

Instantly, the door swings open and hits the wall with a loud thud. I scream as I fall on my side. When I look up, Ace is standing between the frames of his door, adjusting his tie. All I can make out is his shadow, but I can feel his eyes hard on me.

Stepping inside, he shuts the door behind him coolly. I scramble away with the knife in my hand. When I get to my feet, I dash for my bedroom and grab the telephone. He chases after me, warning me not to do anything stupid.

I dial 9, but I’m not given the chance to finish. He snatches the phone out of my hand and slams it down. I spin around, bringing the butcher knife in front of me again.

Ace takes a quick step back, glaring down at the knife. Then, a slow smirk forms on his lips. The lips I hated I admired once.

“I’ll cut you,” I threaten.

“You won’t,” he says boldly.

“I won’t?” I hiss, bringing the edge of the knife to his neck. “Don’t test me. I will.”

He raises his hands in the air, shaking his head. “When’s the last time you sharpened this bad boy, huh? Three years ago? It’s as dull as fucking a nun in bed.”

“I don’t give a shit! I can still cut you with it! Just… sit down!” I demand, circling him, knife still clutched in my hands and at his neck. “On the bed.”

He frowns. “No.”

“I don’t wanna hurt you, but if I have to I will!” I shout, voice wavering.

“That’s the thing… you won’t.” His tone is even.

I keep my tears back and my emotions behind me for now. I don’t want him to think I’m weak. I don’t want him to get away either. But deep inside I know I won’t hurt him. I won’t cut him. I’m too afraid to shed blood after seeing so much already.

With a bored sigh, Ace snatches the knife out of my hand and tosses it out of my bedroom. It skids across the hard wood floors, causing a clanking noise that makes my ears ring. I gasp, and start to run after it, but he grabs my arm tight and shoves me against the nearest wall. It’s not a hard shove. Nor does it hurt. But I’m still afraid.

As I tremble, he brings one of his large hands up and locks my face between his fingers. His eyes stare deeply into mine, his nostrils flared. From the slit of light filtering in through my window, he looks pissed. I know he’s going to kill me. I’m a witness.

“Listen to me,” he grumbles. His warm breath spills down my chest, across my cleavage. “I told you I’m not going to hurt you.”

“Why wouldn’t you?” I spit.

“I won’t. I’m not the one that killed Jonah. They did.”

Hearing Jonah’s name causes fiery tears to build in my eyes. “It’s your fault. I know it. Why wouldn’t they kill you, too? What were you doing there anyway? Why was Jonah there? Why did they kill him?” All of this is spilling out of me. I’m outraged. I’m pissed that Ace is still alive and my brother isn’t. I’m terrified. I’m… I’m a mess.

“Listen to me!” he demands, releasing my face to lock his hands on my shoulders. “I don’t know why they killed Jonah, all right? I don’t know why they didn’t kill me. But you have to understand… it’s what we do. It’s what Jonah signed up for. It’s business, and we can’t help when shit gets bloody.”

I process his words, give them some thought. “So… you’re the one that got him into that shit? What is it? What’d you promise him? I know Jonah, and I know he wouldn’t do something this bad without something in exchange.”

“I didn’t promise him shit.” Ace runs one hand through his slick hair. “He knew what he was in for. He was money-hungry, just like everyone else. He saw a way to achieve it and he went for it. It was a mistake… him coming to Atlanta.”

“How is that a mistake?” I demand. “I invited him. I graduated!”

Ace tilts his chin to meet my eyes. His are dark, and if I’m not mistaken, watery. I’m not given the chance to figure it out completely because he blinks and just like that, he’s angry again. “Don’t go to the cops. It’ll only get you killed.”

And with that, he releases me and walks out of my bedroom. I follow after him, grabbing his arm before he can get out the front door. “Killed by who? You?” I’m keeping my voice steady, but deep inside I’m scared out of my fucking mind.

***CONTENT WARNING*** This book is NOT suitable for under 18s. It contains graphic sex, violence and, drug use. Please do not read if you are easily offended.

oie_wnHzdlyzZAho

Maddie never asked for the life she was given. She simply played the hand she was dealt. So when her sorry excuse for a father suddenly dies, she wants nothing more than to leave her old life behind.

But, with no money to back her, her options are very limited. Her only option is to go to the one person who should have been taking care of her all along – her mother. She’s married to the president of the MC Outlaws. That’s a motorcycle club. Maddie’s never really been into that shit, but she doesn’t have a choice. And surprisingly, she’s going to come to rely on the Outlaws more than she ever expected.

Cole isn’t the type of guy a girl should fall for. He’s rough. He’s demanding, and controlling, and he doesn’t take no for an answer. But, Maddie finds she can’t help herself. He’s the club’s VP, and so goddamned hot, he’d melt the panties off a nun.

She knows she should get some money under her belt and run. The past has an uncanny ability to always catch up with you. But something keeps her running to that sexy biker, Cole.

But Cole has a past as well, and when both of their pasts collide, nothing short of a catastrophe ensues.
Can these two tortured souls find a way to heal each other. Will Cole be her Champion?

Debbie's review

3.5 stars

I received an ARC copy for my honest review

 

This book focuses around Maddie, who at a very young age had her life pretty much stripped away from her because of her junkie mother. After her mother’s death she meets her father that she does not remember.

 

   “Well fuck me. You must be my sperm donor.”

 

 She finally realizes this is her chance to escape from the hell that she has been living.  The problem is that she has no money and nowhere to go.  The only thing she has is a piece of paper with her father’s contact information.

 

This is when things start to pick up. Maddie turns to her father’s MC Club to escape the crazy life her mother dragged her into. The problem is sometimes, no matter how hard you try to hide your past catches up with you.

 

Maddie ends up meeting the VP of her Father’s club Cole. Cole is total alpha and a real hottie . The connection they feel towards each other is unavoidable. Let me say the sex between these two was off the charts HOT!!!!!!! I thought my kindle was going to catch on fire!!!!!!

 

   “He’s the most perfect specimen of a man, I’ve ever laid my eyes on. If an angel, fell to earth and decided to go all rugged and shit, then join a biker gang- You’d have this guy.”

 

Maddie has a tough skin and does not take crap from anyone. She is one bad ass chick!

 

   “Balls are soft. I’ve got a vagina. Much tougher.”

 

   “Dude. You don’t scare me. I’ve known men far scarier than you. Hell, I’ve fucked men scarier than you, and I’ve got the fucking scars to prove it.”

The book was filled with action and suspense and there were many surprises that I honestly did not see coming. It does not end in a cliffhanger it just has you wanting more.

Synopsis

Jag Jensen and Ellen Love had been best friends their whole lives until he turned thirteen and started noticing girls his own age, but that didn’t mean he stopped watching out for eleven-year-old Ellen. By his senior year in high school, baseball had taken the front seat in his life, with a scholarship to college and a pro career looming on the horizon, when sophomore Ellen caught his attention and they struck up their friendship again. Although Ellen wanted more, Jag didn’t want to drag her into what he knew would be a crazy life, but love has a way of deciding one’s future, and eventually they became a couple. Ellen followed him to California as he began his pro career, but his wild and hectic lifestyle screwed everything up.

Now Jag is lost, realizing he’s never been without his best friend in his life. Learning to live without Ellen doesn’t settle well with him, so while trying to remain at the top of his career, he also wants to get his girl back, which proves to be more difficult than he thought it’d be. Will Ellen give him another chance or does that sort of thing only happen in the sappy romance novels she always used to read? Jag hopes she’s willing to try again as he puts his heart on the line for the woman he knows will always be his forever and a day.

Josie's review

5 stars

If you have not read Book 1, Discovering Us, STOP READING THIS REVIEW.

So Finding Us picks up where Book 1 left off, Jag shocked that El walked away.  In book 1 we know what it took for Jag and El to finally come together, their journey was long.  Jag gets drafted to the Dodgers and El flies up to LA.  Jag gets caught up in the lifestyle, and forgets what is important, El.   Now, we have a shady slimy agent Dirk, a slurry mole troll Alessandra and Jag who is too caught up in the high life to realize the mistakes he is allowing to happen.  Dirk signs Jag into an endorsement deal with the sexy model for an under commercial.  Things go from bad to worse and El leaves.

 I was so upset with Jag at the end of Book 1 that I wanted to slap him. He took El and their love for granted.  Jag for me is kind of selfish. Do I love him? Hell yeah.  When he finally realized El went back home to Chicago, he felt his heart leave as well.   Jag has a goal and that goal is to get El…only if things were that easy.  Jag is suffering big time without El. He is messing up on the field and walks around in a daze.  He has a good relationship with his teammate, Bax, and he leans on him for help to get El back.  I absolutely loved his advice it was from the heart and straight to the point.  Jag wages a war of his own and that war is to get his love back

“You do that, let her know she’s important to you, and you might find a way to work it out.  And, again, it’s not the things that are gonna do it.  It’s how you make her feel that’ll convince her, got it?”

Let me get back to the slurry mole troll, Alessandra (you guessed it I hate her and you will too).  She really thinks that her and Jag should be in a relationship. She is delusional, aggressive and pushy.  Jag for some reason, keeps making the same mistakes. He really does not understand why El would be upset.  He lost the love of his life for this woman, and he honest to God does not understand why she is being so bitchy (I know slap).

“Jag, we really owe ourselves to give this a shot, don’t you think?  Oh now you are getting it”

“Oh, I got it a couple of weeks ago when the best thing in my life walked out on me.”

I loved when Jag was on full out WOO-MODE. He knew he wanted to get his El back.  El was not going to just forgive and forget.  I loved that about El. She was wronged and Jag discredited her feelings.  She trusted him and gave up her life in Chicago and moved to follow him.  I loved that each of the characters were strong and willing to fight for what they wanted.  I cried my eyes out for El. She was really hurt by what happened, and Jag really did not understand it.  Jag decides to go to Chicago and get her back.

“I know I made you feel less than important, and I’m sorry, baby.  I lost sight of what mattered the most.”

“When you love someone, the world is supposed to look different.  You’re supposed to look different.  You’re supposed to feel different.  And you do. And because you’ve given that person you whole, entire self, you put your trust in them that they’ll keep you safe.”

When reality finally kicks in, Jag now understands how El is feeling and he can see just how much he let her down.  This is where I was cheering Jag (GO JAG.  GO JAG).  Jag can SEX IT UP, MAN ON MAN. HOLY BASEBALLS!!!  When these two decide to go for it again, let’s just say, get a change of panties because you are going to get wet!!

 “Your career’s important, and I’m willing to do whatever I can to help.”

“Could F**k you all night long, baby.  Love your pu**y, so tight and wet.  Love burying my co*k inside you so deep.  You love my co*k inside you, don’t you.” (HMMMM HELL YEAH)

“Yes, Jag, I love it.”

Now, as I started out in the beginning we have a slurry troll mole on deck and we know how that goes…YEP SHE AINT GOING AWAY QUIETLY!!!! (I have secretly decided to write myself and some of my friends into the book and take her out, but that is a secret).  I swear I was an emotional mess with this book. Ms. Bentley broke me, stitched me back up, shocked me, made me cry, only to laugh and finally left me with a side of WTF?  I swear this couple has the 2 most underhanded people against them.  Will El and Jag be able to make it work?  Are the slurry troll mole and the slimy agent, Dirk successful in tearing the couple apart?  Is Jag smarter now? Has he learned to man up and do what is best for the love his life and for himself? (Because let’s face it, when you read this book you will see how lost he is with El.)  I CAN NOT GIVE YOU THE ANSWERS. You are going to have to read it like me.  I will say that I will be stalking Harper Bentley for Book 3, the final book in the trilogy, because I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT FOR THE COUPLE.

Take a chance on this series, you will love it. It was beautifully written.  This book is written in Jags POV so we get into his mind and let me tell you he is funny as heck.

“I mean Jesus, her tits were all but jumping out of that goddamned dress.  Any hot-blooded male would be blind not to want to check them out.  I know, I know.  I’m a d**k.  Yeah, yeah.”

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her,
but she was the one girl who didn’t beg for his attention.
He wanted her.
Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you,
but then she met Carter Jennings.
She wanted him.
Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.
Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.
They want each other.
But love in the city is never quite that easy.
 
Kim's Review
4 star

“I know butterflies, can’t squeal, but I think I heard the ones in my stomach do just that as I held his hand.”

Carter and Ellyson met when they were in college. The minute Carter saw her he knew he had to get to know her.  They both had feelings for each other but ended up becoming best friends. Carter ends up having to move back to Dallas because his father was very sick and he only trust Carter to run his company.

 “Yeah, “just friends” wasn’t even an option for us anymore.”

It’s now five years later and Carter’s moving back to NYC.  He’s on a mission to get the woman who stole his heart all those years ago. Elly has been in love Carter all these years and has never been able to commit to a relationship with anyone else. The minute these two see each other again sparks fly! They both know they can’t just go back to being friends and can only move forward.

“It’s ok if you’re not ready, but I need to know that someday you will be ready. I want a life with you. You’re the only woman I’ll ever want forever with.”

 Elly’s mother died from cancer when she was younger which has made Elly scared that she will end up with it as well.  Her fear of dying makes it hard for her to commit to Carter. However, Carter will not give up without a fight.

“He made me love drunk.”

 Yup, Carter did that to me too!! Carter is truly an amazing character in this story. While I understand why Elly feels the way she does, I love how he fights for her. I wish we would’ve gotten a little more background on their relationship in college so we could see how they fell in love with each other. We do get some emotional scenes but no real angst. This is just a feel good love story! If you’re looking for something light and fast to read, I’d definitely one-click this book!

“Plus, we were friends, I didn’t think you wanted me that way.” 

“That’s the only way I’ve ever wanted you. It’s always been you for me.”

Excerpt

I exited the car and walked over to him, grabbing him by his silk blue tie and led him to my door. As we entered, Julien, a little predictably, was all over me, tugging and pulling, kneading my skin with his strong hands. We were still tangled together, his lips devouring mine, as he kicked the door shut. Oh how I missed you!

Reluctantly, I pulled away, prying his greedy hands away, and pulling on his tie as I led him into my bedroom. I could feel his intense eyes probing me from behind. Yes, Julien… this was now my show, I’m in charge, I told myself. That first night he was the one who conquered my body but tonight I would seek my revenge on him, exploring him completely.

I brought him to the side of the bed, pulling on him so that his face was inches from mine. I brushed my lips lightly against his as I said, “Don’t move.”

I slid my body onto the queen sized bed, facing him. I loved the animalistic and passionate desire in his eyes as he watched me.

“Slowly take off your clothes Julien,” I commanded.

He groaned softly as he did as he was told. He unzipped and dropped his pants, letting them fall to his feet. His erection sprung out from the confines of his boxers, engorged and ready for attention; and oh what a delightful sight it was! Built perfectly it was long and thick, jerking eagerly as I looked him over. Each time it twitched, my mouth watered at the thought of taking him into my hungry mouth. He removed his pinstriped navy jacket and tossed it aside before finally taking off his shirt and tie, standing completely nude before me. The sight of him melted my insides and a flow of liquid oozed freely between my legs.

“Do you want me Julien?” I asked as I moved closer to the edge of the bed. I watched as his breathing increased, his eyes barely open, but still intense with greedy, lusty desire. The unhinged animalistic man, that had taken me so roughly before, was near the surface and burning to take control but I was not ready to let him take over just yet. Slowly I undressed, leisurely unbuttoning my shirt and slipping my skirt off. I made sure to linger longer than usual, watching as his breath caught in his throat each time an article of my clothing was removed.

“Emily…” he groaned as my bra came off, almost sounding like he was in pain. I left my thong panties on just to extend his torment. He had to wait just a little longer for that. This was definitely my show now and I wanted to take full advantage.

“You didn’t answer my question Julien,” I teased as I nested my legs in between his, inching closer and closer to his engorged thick erection and taking him into my hand. My eyes never left his.

He hissed in agony. “Yes I want you Mon chaton, my kitten. Why must you torture me so?” he said as his eyes closed tightly, tilting his head back. I knew that men like Julien weren’t used to relinquishing power to their women. He was the dominator, but not tonight. Tonight, he would submit first and maybe, just maybe, I would restore the balance of power.

My hands were still on him as I stroked his manhood softly; inching closer, my mouth hovered over him, allowing my hot breath to caress his mushroomed head, causing him to let out a deep, guttural groan.

“How much Julien? How much do you want me baby?” I asked while looking up at him through my lashes. Before he could open his mouth to answer, my lips took him whole. My tongue massaging him with purpose as his body went rigid in agony and pleasure. Oh how I missed him, I thought again.

Slowly I worked him, sucking, and licking; taking him deeper and deeper as his hands found their way to my hair, and guided me down his thick, lovely shaft. His sharp indrawn breath pleased me as I took him in all the way. I knew he was close because a small squirt of liquid caressed my tongue, letting me know I had to stop. I pulled away, letting out a popping sound from the release of suction.

“Don’t,” he cried out, wanting for more.

“Ah, patience Mon amour,” I giggled as I recalled him saying those same words to me when I whimpered for more from him. I felt powerful, sexy and I loved it!

Realizing my chosen phrase, his lips curled up, “Mean, mean woman you are Emily…” he teased.

Slowly I turned over onto all fours. I liked the obedient Julien but it was time to summon the primal animal within him and I knew just what would do the trick. I perked my ass up in the air, giving him a lovely view, my mound wet and dripping with excitement. Come for me Julien, let that animal out.

He groaned and slowly walked up to me, attempting to grab me, but I moved away, “Tsk, tsk, tsk… Didn’t I tell you not to move,” I said, my face turned to him with my ass still in the air. “You don’t want to get punished, do you?” I scowled playfully.

To my surprise, he stepped back, although I could see I was testing his patience. It wouldn’t be long before that primal animal inside of him came rushing to the surface, commanding its power back and taking me just the way it had before. I had just a few more minutes so I had to make it count. Determined, I brought my hand to my mound, caressing my nub as he watched, with his chest flaring up and down, and his eyes seemingly mesmerized.

“Tell me Julien, do you like what I’m doing?” I asked, half teasing but fully aroused.

He grunted, “Ah huh…” his eyes were fixated on my swollen mound as I teased my aching nub.

It was now or never. I slid my finger through my silken folds, feeling my body clench around it, moaning in enjoyment and felt him itching to move closer but halting. I pulled my finger out of me and brought it to my mouth, licking it painfully slow, and tasting my sweet essence. Bingo!

about the author

Kim was born and raised in the great state of New York. She is a newly self-published author.

She has always believed that one day she would become an author. She enjoyed reading and writing all of her life and had always felt that it was somewhat of a calling for her. At age 28, she had no idea that she would become an Erotic Romance Author, mostly because she just got into reading Romances and instantly fell in love with the genre.

Kim enjoys the passions of love and believes that there is no greater feeling than the initial jilt we get when we first meet that right person. Wanting to provide romance readers with stories that they can feel and get lost in, Kim decided in September 2013 to become a published author. Her first debut novel is “DISCOVERED” which will be a part of “The Cover Series,” debuted on December 28th 2013.

When she is not writing, she enjoys hanging out with her friends and family and reading. Her favorite books are always romance based with a healthy dose of erotica. ♥

Calvin Parish
They call me Hero.
I defend.
I protect.
I ask for nothing in return, and that makes me good.
Doesn’t it?

That which makes me the ultimate predator also feeds dark impulses I’ve learned to control—until I bring her too close. For years I’ve watched her from afar, but what started out as duty has become obsession.

Cataline Ford
I work hard.
I play by the rules.
I’m content.
My scars are quiet and invisible, and that keeps me hidden.
Doesn’t it?

One fateful walk home, I’m taken by someone I didn’t know I should fear. Captive and afraid, nobody will tell me why I’m confined to this hauntingly beautiful mansion. I’m given everything; I have nothing. He takes what he needs from me, and for that I hate him. But I might have loved him once.

And just because you’re reading this doesn’t mean I survive him.

Portrait of handsome stylish man in elegant black suit

oie_pkerfVkzECm4

Because I’m lost in my thoughts, I don’t hear Cataline enter the room. Her tight black dress cuts across her mid-thighs, and her cleavage teases from a plummeting neckline. She’s done her makeup for probably the second time since arriving at the mansion.

“What is this?” I ask, narrowing my eyes.

“What?”

Jasmine drifts under my nose as she walks away from me to her seat.

“I told you not to dress up for dinner.”

“I thought you’d like it,” she says, lowering herself gracefully into the chair. Her back is straight as a rod, and her fingers are laced. “You don’t?”

Norman decorates the table with food as I stare Cataline down. He clears his throat. “For dinner, we have—”

“Leave us.”

He pauses. Though my eyes are still fastened on Cataline, I know he’s watching me as he bows his head. “As you wish, sir.”

I stand and slowly walk the line of the long table. My footsteps echo through the hall, appropriately menacing. I’ve just come from a burning building but am back in my suit and tie to maintain appearances. And my ridiculous glasses, which I remove and toss aside. She’ll believe I’ve just returned from the office. When I’m standing over her, she tugs up the neckline of the dress and blinks at me. I resist smirking as she tucks hair behind her ear twice.

“Well,” she says, “aren’t we going to eat?”

“I’m going to eat.”

“I’m not?”

“As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one meal at this table, and it’s you.”

My ears pick up her slow swallow, my eyes the curl of her hands in her lap. “That sounds like a threat,” she says quietly.

I bend over, flatten one hand on the table and wrap the other around the arm of her chair. “It’s not. This is a threat: if you’re not naked and spread out on this table in two seconds, I’m going to spank you so hard, you won’t know up from down.”
