By the end of January, the Five Alarm Alphas box set will be broken up into individual novellas. You can still get it as a set until then, though. And while we’re at it, I thought you’d like to read a snippet from my story, Up In Smoke, which will be released later this year as the first in a new series, Fire Me Up. (more…)

Temptation Tuesday with Author Amber Skyze

This one looks fun, y’all!

AS_OperationSecondHoneymoon_coverinBlurb:

On the verge of their tenth anniversary, Cole is planning a surprise gift aboard a boat for his wife Avery. Bathing suits are optional – preferably left behind. The only other thing they need to make this weekend perfect? Owen their next door neighbor.

Out on the open sea, Avery will find herself tied to the rails being tortured in the sweetest ways imaginable. The men take her to delicious heights, only to leave her hanging – if only momentarily. When she demands an orgasm she oversteps the boundaries Cole and Owen have but in place. The two men spank her back into submission. There’s nothing like red cheeks to ignite the flames of desire in Cole.

After a tremulous six months of clawing their way back together, Avery is ready to accept the help she needs to fix the marriage her husband has fought so hard to save. Will a weekend of hot, sweaty sex be enough to rescue them?

 

Excerpt:

AVERY WANTED TO wipe that smug look off her sister’s face.

“What’s so funny, Kendall?”

“You and Cole. You’re like dogs in heat. I’m surprised there aren’t a herd of kids running rampant around this yard.”

“We’re very careful. We both want children eventually, but we love our lives too much to have them right now.” She wondered if it sounded selfish. She and Cole shared such an incredible sex life that she worried if she had children, it would go away. She’d heard horror stories where couples had children and their relationships fell apart. While she trusted their love, she still didn’t want to risk losing the amazing sex.

Damn, how she’d wanted Cole to drag her into the kitchen, prop her up on the granite countertop, slide her bikini bottoms over, and slip his hard cock inside her. Once Kendall and Owen made their exit, Avery planned to attack her husband. She craved every last inch of Cole.

“You really should see a sex therapist, Avery.”

“Why, because I enjoy sex with my husband?”

“Yes and no. I’m glad you want sex with only Cole, but you guys go at it like rabbits. It can’t be healthy. Is your connection with Cole that deep on every level? If is it is, I hate you for making marriage look so easy.”

Avery turned and looked to the patio, where Cole stood talking with Owen. She wondered what had them looking so serious. She shrugged. Cole would tell her later. He shared everything.

“Oh, so you’re here today because you’re concerned about me?” Avery turned her attention to her sister sitting in the lounge chair, soaking up the sun’s rays.

“I’m here because you’re my sister and I love you very much. And your husband makes a killer steak.”

“He does, doesn’t he? Cole’s amazing.” God, she felt like a love-struck teen fawning over her favorite actor.

“Jesus, Avery. Are your nipples getting hard from looking at Cole? You really do need to see a sex therapist. I’m officially jealous of you two.”

Blah, blah, blah. She didn’t want to hear any more of her sister’s talk about a sex therapist. Avery wasn’t giving up sex with her husband. She longed to feel his soft lips licking and tugging on her hard nipples. Arousal swarmed over her body; juices seeped out onto her bathing suit. Frustrated over not being about to get the relief she sought, Avery jumped into the cool water and swam to the other end of the pool, where she could be alone. She hung on to the edge of the pool and let her legs float in the water.

The cool water didn’t ease the ache between her legs. She wondered if Cole suffered from a rock-hard dick. Did he wish they were alone so he could fuck her? Most likely. If she knew her husband half as well as she thought she did, he was on the same smoking-hot page as her.

“Steaks are done. Come and get it before it gets you,” Cole called out.

“Coming,” she said.

Guest Author – Lelia Brown: When Is A Sequel Too Close To The Original

Okay, so I have a question for all you readers out there. When is a book to much like the previous one? I mean lets make it a given that the characters are different with different mannerisms and motivations. But if you have a story that is a sequel and involves a situation that happens throughout the series does it make the books too much alike for you.

For me it’s hard to tell. The exact same plot could be a totally different book depending on the characters motivations. But some people feel differently. I had a person tell me one of my unpublished books was too near the plot of one of my published books. I didn’t think so. I thought the situations/characters/settings were different. But once someone said that, I couldn’t make myself to publish that book. That book is still sitting on my hard drive. o_O…. Yes I am too sensitive.

So now you may be asking yourself, what brought on this train of thought? Well, I just turned in the sequel to Haley’s Demon. The second book is Izzy’s Incubus. In these two books the heroines both perform the same spell. Both heroes do one act that is the same. Other than that it’s different. The settings. The time frames. Everything. So if you read Haley’s Demon you will remember a couple of things. But when two women do the same spell, then you would expect them to get the same or near the same result. Right?  Besides, Haley summons her demon not imagining that it will work while Izzy has a back up plan prepared in case her visitor gets out of line!

Okay enough about me and my Demon Lover Series. What about you? What makes you crazy in a sequel?
