BLURB: Growing up, Kai Bennu was taunted for skin dark as midnight and his otherworldly appearance.

Tanner & Shade (Demon Elite #4) Excerpt

Image
Here's a little excerpt from the next Demon Elite books. Just to set up the scene so everything makes sense: Shade and Tanner are in a relationship. Tanner is mute and has to use ASL to communicate. This scene is about them trying to deal with their feelings for another man, Finn O'Reilly. 
This is an M/M/M Contemporary Romance


Blurb Finnigan O’Reilly is a magnet for all the wrong men and this time he has really screwed up when his attraction involves two men in a relationship…with each other.

Finn made a big mistake once and he’s still paying for it. Not only was the man already married to someone else, turns out, he’s also a psychopath who is still hunting him. He thinks he’s safe enough at the lakehouse mansion, though. After all, he does live with a group of assassins and each one would do just about anything to protect him, especially two very special men that Finn should not be looking at with dreamy eyes. When his past catches up with him in a local park, its Shade and Tann…

#MySexySaturday - Sexy Walks In

Image
This week's Theme is Sexy Walks In. In Whispers of Home, I chose a snippet in which the main characters first meet each other again. I say again because Jaron moves back to his hometown after years of being gone.
Blurb Finding love in a town he couldn’t wait to get away from is the last thing he expects, and the one thing that just may change his life forever. All Jaron McAllister wanted to do was get out of the small town where he grew up. After being bullied all his life for being gay, that’s exactly what he does. He loses all contact with everyone in the town of Pickleville, including his emotionally distant mother and the only true friend he ever had.
When his best friend and mother of the child they share, get murdered, he knows he must ask for help in the one place he thought he would never go back to. Coming back home isn’t easy and finding himself attracted to the town man-slut spells disaster. Travis Heath isn’t at all what his reputation suggests, though.

Throwback Thursday - A Tarnished Strength (Pickleville #4)

Image
Blurb Violence has always solved most of his problems, but it can’t help him win over a man whose whole life is surrounded by things that scare him.
Brad Flynn had a rough start to life. With an abusive father and an addiction problem, his life hasn’t been easy. He has always been the resident bad ass and the town drunk. Even when he gets sober and becomes an upstanding member of the community it doesn’t seem to change the towns mind about him. If it weren’t for his two brothers he would have no one.
His past doesn’t make having a love life easy either, but when he meets Kendrick Ashby, the local bar own, he wants to give it a try. The only problem is Kendrick has his own problems, ones that make having a violent boyfriend impossible. Both have to decide if dating is even worth a try.

What Can I Do?

Image
So I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled post to talk about the Orlando shooting for a moment. I think at this point, everything that can be said was, repeatedly. I have nothing new to add to the conversation. And frankly, I'm ready to take action the only way I know how. By writing.

I've already written letters to the political people who supposedly run this country. I asked them for better laws so that we as a nation can control the guns that get distributed to the wrong people. I'll keep writing letters until something happens too.

I keep thinking about the mother going to Pulse to look for her son. Her son was one of the victims that lost his life. I think about her because I have a son too. As a mother, I completely get it. I'd be down there looking for him, ready to fight anyone that got in my way if needed. Hell, her boy wasn't even my kid and my blood is boiling for a fight.

By writing my congressmen that's what I'm doing, fighting for all the…

#MySexySaturday - Sexy In Time

Image
So this week's theme is Sexy In Time. I thought what better snippet to give you then in a book way in the future. 


BLURB In a world without surface water, Jimini Renn wants nothing more than to live inside the protective walls of Adam City for the rest of his life, but his little brother has other ideas. 

As far as Jimini is concerned, Adam City has everything he needs. It has a well that provides much-needed water, food, and safety from the dangers of the outside world. When his bookworm of a brother leaves to chase waterfalls, Jimini must follow even though he knows it will probably mean his death. When the first person he meets on the outside pulls a gun on him, he’s proven right. No one who calls himself a slaver and has a gun has Jimini’s safety in mind, even if he is sexy. The journey Jimini expects isn’t the one he gets.

SNIPPET Jimini turned around and looked at him. Aaruth naked was even better than Jimini had pictured. He was chiseled in all the right places and lean around…

Throwback Thursday - Fixing What's Bent (Pickleville #3)

Image
Extasy Books | Amazon | All Romance eBooks
Blurb
Moving to a small town isn’t the peaceful experience Andrew Martinez hoped it would be.
Andrew Martinez needed a change. He was sure he’d lose his mind if he didn’t get out of the city. Between living with his mother and sisters, and the stress of his job, he needed a slower pace. The day he moves to small town Pickleville, he meets the prettiest man he’s ever seen. Andrew doesn’t do long term relationships, though.
Kyler and Andrew have one night together and Andrew sneaks away in the middle of the night. The only problem is, for once in Andrew’s life, one night isn’t enough. When a serial rapist starts hurting women, Andrew’s life gets even more complicated than if he’d stayed in the city. So much for a slower pace.

So I thought I'd start a little thing for the Demon Elite series. Sort of like I did for the men of Pickleville, which is a page on this blog. My plan is to tell a little bit about each Main Character in the books. I'll start with Crash (Demon Elite #1).

Crashis an assassin for the Demon Elite team. He's the guy his boss, Justin, goes to when he wants someone taken out quickly, with no questions asked.

His real name is Chester James Morgan. He's a mama's boy at heart and his very protective of her. He's protective of everyone he loves actually which is a quality that causes him problem's in the book. He falls hard and fast for Elijah Spade, and that leads him down a road to questioning everything and everybody he's every worked for.




Elijah has a very shitty family. He's related to the bad guys from the Lakehouse Security series. His Uncle is Phillip Avery, who was the founder of the compound that held Aaron, Zach, and Jacob prisoner. They all had to …

#MYSexySaturday - My Sexy Secret

Image
We all love to read those intimate moments between two lovers. A lot of the time those moments lead them to discover things about each other that no one else knows. Well, In Cosmo (Demon Elite #3) Cosmo and Derek have a moment like that. Cosmo tells Derek a secret about himself that hardly anyone knows about.


Blurb
Cosmo knew breaking and entering Derek’s house was probably not the way to win the man’s affection.
Cosmo Ruckman is very good at breaking and entering. He’s had years of practice, starting from the time he was a child. Despite his criminal past, he manages to earn a spot on the Demon Elite team. Cosmo has had a mad crush on Derek Kyle from the first moment he met him. Since Derek never gave him the time of day, moving on was easy when Demon Elite left the agency. Cosmo hasn’t thought about Derek in months. Now, he’s assigned the task of breaking into the man’s house and office. He just hopes Derek has nothing to hide, because it could mean the man’s death.
