Point of Seduction by Lori King

Built around the premise that love can be found with multiple partners, the Island of Sunset Point has always been Gabriella Larkin’s home. She respects the open minded community, but her own past relationships have left her burned, and she can’t overcome her doubts about love. Throwing herself into her clothing boutique Designs By Lark she makes it her number one focus, until she meets Austin, Michael and Kendrick.

Brothers Austin and Michael Curtis along with their best friend Kendrick McClure are new to the island, but not to the idea of ménage. A chance meeting with the gorgeous Gaby has sparks flying and the men planning on seduction. Enthralled by the intense sexual attraction between the four of them, Gaby embarks on a tumultuous and passionate relationship with the trio, but reaching the Point of Seduction will mean facing off with her past…

My Review:

Lori King’s Point of Seduction was the first book released in the Sunset Point series but one of the fabulous highlights of this series is that you can read them in any order you wish and still have a mind-blowing experience.  In this case, you can say that I saved the best for last because this book was one of my favorite of the entire series.  Gaby, our feisty heroine is bundle of contradictions.  She is independent yet seeks approval.  She is fun loving and out-going yet lady-like and tame.  She is confident and knows her place in the world yet shows her uncertainty at times.  Gaby made me laugh and charmed me with her klutziness and her fashion hoarding.  So, it’s no surprise that it takes three men to tame this fabulously complex woman. Austin and Michael are brothers’ who, along with their best friend Kendrick, fall under the bewitching spell Gaby.  Comfortable and familiar with the ménage lifestyle, the three men embark on a romance with the woman they all feel is perfect for them.  In my head, no one seduces better than Austin, Michael and Kendrick.  With their whip-cord strong bodies and their open and loving hearts, Gaby has no defense against their seduction.  Hikes, sail-boat tours, dinners and dancing, nighttime skinny dipping, and even some martial arts lessons, these men pull out all the stops to win her heart and soul.   Not everything is perfect on the path to love, however. A protective and judgmental father and an ass-hat douche-bag of an ex-boyfriend and you have the perfect ingredient for some angsty tension that sets our heroes protective instincts into full-out alpha-male mode.  When Gaby is kidnapped, these men stop at nothing to save the love of their lives.  The plot was outstanding.  Ms. King has the unique ability to create one-of-a-kind characters that are deep and real and her imagination and creativity are out of this world.  I was thoroughly entertained from beginning to end and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to fall in love over and over again.  5 of 5 stars.

Cross Point by Laurie Roma

Former IAD agent Katrina “Trinity” Cross is in desperate need of a vacation. When a friend asks for a personal favor, Trinity agrees to fly to the island of Sunset Point, only to find that things in paradise aren’t what they seem…

Jackson Stone is a man who likes regulation and order, but when Katrina Cross arrives on his island, life as he knows it’ll never be the same.

Falling behind schedule is not allowed in Maxwell King’s orderly world. Missing money, cheap materials and a dead foreman top of the list of his problems, but nothing shakes him more than the sexy siren that sets his body on fire…

As the investigation heats up, Maxwell and Jackson both fall for Trinity, but she can’t choose between the uptight corporate mogul and the rough and ready police Lieutenant. Can she find a way to keep them both or will their love become a casualty at the Cross Point?

My Review:

From the first time I was introduced to Trinity Cross in Ms. Roma’s IAD Series, I knew it would take a super special man to tame this wild cat.  The joke was on me because it took not one special man, but two to bring this woman down.  Trinity is fierce and passionate and completely real and honest.  She makes no apologies for who she is and what she wants and she decides that she wants not only Jackson, but Maxwell too.  And she wants them both together.  Jackson and Maxwell overcome their own insecurities and doubts and woo Trinity, complete with a few missteps and misunderstandings along the way.  These characters have passion and fire and hold you completely spellbound when they are together.  Their raw passion and chemistry keeps your senses sizzling and your hormones all aflutter.  The plot was fast paced and action packed and gave me everything I’ve come to expect in a Laurie Roma book…plus a little extra more.   Throw in some Naughty Sprinkles and some good-old-fashion butt kicking and this book entertains you from beginning to end.  5 of 5 stars.

Hearts and Handcuffs – Erika Reed

When Amber Green’s boyfriend’s actions get her fired, she reaches out to her best friend and finds herself swept up an the opportunity of a lifetime. Offered a new job and a chance to move to a tropical paradise, Amber says yes and packs her bags, leaving her old life behind. Or so she thought…

Millionaire Reid Sullivan is a widower that owns a lush and lavish villa on the private side of Sunset Point. Reid is immediately intrigued by Amber, and offers the beautiful woman a job to work for him as his live-in-housekeeper after hearing she needs a place to stay.

Dante DeSoto is a hard-ass detective from Chicago Police Department whose investigation leads him to Sunset Point after the sudden death of Amber’s ex-boyfriend. After meeting the gentle beauty, he is convinced of Amber’s innocence. Dante decides to stay on the island so that he and Reid can help protect her.

Both men want Amber, but they’re going to have to find a way to share. With old demons and new dangers dogging them every step of the way, the three lovers will have to fight for the happily ever after they long to share.

My Review:

In Erika Reed’s Hearts and Handcuffs, heroine Amber Green brings trouble all the way to Sunset Point and takes us readers on a fun and fast paced ride.  Amber has been fired and it’s all because of her scummy now-ex-boyfriend.  She has come to Sunset Point at the insistence of her friend Trinity and is starting over.   And there is no better way to start over than capturing the attention of local widower Reid Sullivan.  Reid has suffered tragedy and heartache in his past and a chance encounter has him inviting Amber to stay with him at his home as a temporary house-keeper.  But, right behind Reid, Chicago Detective Dante DeSoto has come to find Amber while looking for clues in the murder of Amber’s ex-boyfriend.  While Amber is innocent, Dante believes her to be in trouble and together these men vow to keep Amber safe.  Throw in some wicked-hot hot tub scenes, a little bit of beach action and a pretty dreamy date and I was completely sold on this trio.  I also have to mention…the hiding place of certain items the bad guys are looking for…OMG, it is pure genius.  Their chemistry is amazing and in addition to their relationship, I loved watching Dante and Reid bond on an intimate level, not romantically but like they had just found a friendship they didn’t know they were missing.  The plot was fast paced and easy to follow, Naughty Sprinkles makes its appearance again (I’m loving this cupcake shop), and three more people find their happily-ever-after in last place any of them expected to find love.  I enjoy watching all the characters from the Sunset Point series make appearances too.  I give it 5 of 5 stars.

Tattoos and Cupcakes by Hennessee Andrews

Being sequestered on Sunset Point Island is the least of Lane Erikson’s worries. Being a witness to a murder may be her demise. What does one do when a network of FBI wanted criminals are looking to kill you? You run like hell, even it’s to a place you’ve never heard of.

Dane Hutchinson, local tattoo artist, sets his sights on winning Lane’s affection and sharing her with Bannock Garrison, Sunset Point police officer. Bannock never wanted a ménage relationship, even though his parents have lived a happy life in one. The idea of sharing a woman bothers him, but losing Dane’s friendship bothers him more.

As the relationship begins to soar with possibilities, Lane is faced with her world crashing down again and her life hangs in the balance. Can Bannock and his colleagues save the day? More importantly, can Bannock overcome his distrust for women and allow Lane into his heart and share her with his best friend?

My Review:

I was extremely excited to read this book in the Sunset Point series for one reason…..Naughty Sprinkles.  I just wanted to read anything and everything about Naughty Sprinkles and its fabulous cupcakes.  But I was even more surprised and impressed by how much I enjoyed the characters too (sorry Hennessee…I’m all about the cupcakes some days). Ms. Andrews takes us on an erotic journey with Reese, Dane, and Bannock and some chemistry so hot that not even the strongest buzz from chocolate, liquor, and whipped cream can touch.  Reese is actually Lane, hiding out in Sunset Point after witnessing a violent crime.  Bannock and Dane are best friends and while Dan has entertained the idea of sharing with Bannock, Bannock has no intentions of sharing or every falling in love again.  My first impression of Reese was that she was slightly selfish but once she got to Sunset Point, she redeemed herself.  She was honest, curious, funny, and, despite first impression, seemed very unsure of herself and her worth.  She grew on me and I admired her strength and passion.  Dane, our tattooed, Harley-riding bad boy was sex on a stick covered in chocolate syrup and rolled in candied cherries.  I just wanted to lick him.  And Bannock?  Ok, honestly, I spent majority of this book seriously wanting to kick his ass from one end of the island to the other then the rest of the story wishing I was there to strip him out of his uniform and have my wicked way with him.  And that is what makes this book even more of a success.  If you take away the brilliantly cast characters, the suspenseful plot, the exotic setting, and the loveable secondary characters, Ms. Andrews brought so many emotions to the surface and made you feel so many things, you couldn’t help but not put this book down.  Yet still, if you stir and shake all those things with some mind-blowing sex scenes, a little bit of comedy (I died laughing mentally picturing a table-breaking “lunch hour”), some soul searching by all of the characters, and one or two come-to-Jesus moments, you have the recipe for a smashing success of a story that will charm and entertain readers indefinitely.  I give Tattoos and Cupcakes 5 of 5 stars.

Breaking Point by Susan Hayes

Lexa Fox lost her childhood the day her mother took her and fled Sunset Point. Twenty-three years later, she’s returning to claim her inheritance from a father she barely remembers, in a place she doesn’t belong.

Detectives Beau Rivers and Diego Mendez grew up in ménage families and always knew they’d be a trio if they could find the right woman. They’d found her once, but fate took her out of their lives long before they were old enough to stake their claim. No woman since has ever managed to live up to their memories of Lexa, so when fate brings their childhood sweetheart back into their lives, they do everything they can to convince their gray-eyed, world-weary beauty to stay.

There are dangers to be faced and enemies to overcome, but in the end it’s up to her men to show her that some hearts never give up hope, and some loves have no Breaking Point.

My Review:

I absolutely love stories like this, where the heroine returns to her hero after being gone for a very long time and this one was even sweeter given how we have two heroes who have literally waited their whole lives for their love to return.  Lexa is an amazing woman with who finally returns home after having her mind twisted and turned by her mentally ill mom.  That Lexa has given her life to helping her mom endears me to her more.  Lexa is kind and sweet and while slightly standoffish in the beginning, she warms and welcomes Sunset Point into her heart and mind.   Diego and Beau are childhood best friends of each other and Lexa and have waited forever for her, never imagining she would actually return and grant them their lifelong dream.  They barely miss each other on quite a few occasions but once they finally see her, they waste no further time in making her theirs.  Both men are sexy yet sweet and completely possessive of Lexa.  One of my favorite parts?  A very spontaneous and sexy encounter at the police station that left the office in less-than-perfect condition.  Naughty Sprinkles makes an appearance again and we have one seriously creepy and horrible bad guy who meets his end in a very original, and cheer inspiring, way.  This book was a fun and romantic adventure full of sensual surprises, enduring love, and finding your way back home.  I give it 5 of 5 stars.

Creating Character Names with Julie Shelton

Owning Sarah

How do I select my characters’ names?  Well, Jesse Colter, one of the two alpha heroes in both my novels, Loving Sarah and now, Owning Sarah, was no problem at all.  His name just appeared in my mind one day and I knew that I was going to write a book about a man named Jesse Colter.  I spent months thinking about him, until I knew exactly what he looked like. Tall, 6’3”, half Native American, with straight black hair, deeply tanned skin, a hawk-like nose, gorgeous high cheekbones, full, sensuous lips and muscles to die for.

But what would he be like?  He’d be strong, smart, funny, loyal, powerful, and totally masculine.  He’d be a bad-ass, macho, alpha-male, sexy commando type, a former SEAL, a man of honor and integrity.  He would also be a sexual Dominant.  Raised in a household completely devoid of love, with no mother and an abusive, drunken bully of a father, for most of his life, women have been nothing more than sexual playthings, to be used and then set aside.  Except for the heroine.  The heroine is special and, to his credit, he knows it.  He loves her with an undying, eternal love that spans both time and distance.

As for the heroine, I needed a sweet, old-fashioned name redolent of the American south and aristocratic England.  A name whose soft sibilance countered the hard staccato of Jesse Colter.  I chose Sarah Marshall.

And, finally, I needed a second alpha-male name for the third member of this menage.  A man who, like Jesse Colter, was also a Dom, a former SEAL, funny, smart, with curly blond hair, Adonis-like features, dimples AND a cleft chin.  I decided that such a paragon needed a strong, uncompromising name, so I made a list of my favorite first names and another of strong, stalwart last names. And I knew the minute I paired them up that I had the perfect name—Adam Sinclair.

Blurb: Owning Sarah

It’s been a month since Sarah Marshall was kidnapped and held at knife-point by her ex-fiance.  But Jesse Colter and Adam Sinclair, her two loving Doms, know that there is an even deadlier threat still out there—Ryder Malone.

He blames both Sarah and Jesse for sending him to prison eight years ago for attempted rape, and he’s determined to make them pay.  So, he begins a systematic campaign of terror and intimidation against them.  But the danger he poses doesn’t end there.

Set against the deepening love and commitment between Sarah, Jesse, and Adam, Owning Sarah is more than just a sexy, sensual, BDSM love story.  It is a harrowing race against time for Jesse, Adam, and a team of former SEALs to stop one of the biggest arms-for-drugs deals in U.S. history.  And to rescue Sarah before Malone sells her to a human trafficker and she’s lost to her men forever.

ADULT EXCERPT

“There’s my good girl.” His face softened. “Look, sugar, I agree that this is your domain, where you’re in charge. I get it. What you don’t get is that you are only in charge if I’m not in here with you. Because then it becomes my domain, and I’m in charge, because no matter where we are, if we’re together, I am in charge of you. Are we clear?” When she didn’t answer, his eyes darkened.

Pinioned by no more than his black gaze and the hand tightening around her neck, she might just as well have been tightly restrained. She couldn’t move. Not even when he took the final step that closed the distance between them, commandeering her personal space, dark intent in his eyes and raw hunger in every savage line of his face. She held her breath. Her nipples hardened and her stomach plummeted. “Jesse…”

One black eyebrow shot up. “Are we clear, baby?”

She gulped, struggling to maintain her swiftly-vanishing equilibrium. “Y-yes, Jesse.”

“Good. Glad that’s settled. Now, I believe I gave you a direct order, Sarah. But since you seem to be incapable of following it, I’ll help.”

She watched, aghast, as he shoved her chair out of the way with his foot, sending it scooting across the marble floor. With both hands, he unbuttoned her teal silk blouse, jerked the tails out of the waistband of her skirt and removed it, tossing it casually onto the seat of her chair. Reaching behind her, he deftly unclasped her ecru lace bra and pulled it off, revealing her creamy breasts to his hot, hard gaze. Folding the scrap of lace carefully, he stuffed it into the flapped pocket on the left leg of his cargoes. “Offer your breasts to me, Sunny.”

She gulped. Sunny. The name he and Adam had given her—the slave name he and Adam had given her. The name that let her know that a scene had officially started and she was their property until they saw fit to release her. Swallowing again, she curved her hands beneath her voluptuous breasts, lifting them up as if sacrificing them to a pagan god.

Every cell in his body burst into vibrant, throbbing life. He tried to swallow, but all the moisture in his mouth had evaporated and he couldn’t get his tongue to work. Christ! She wrecked him! She simply wrecked him! He still couldn’t believe he finally had her after needing her for so long. Eight years! Eight fuckin’ years!

“Jesus, sugar, your breasts are so gorgeous.” It was a hoarse whisper, barely audible above the blood pounding in his ears. His head descended. He closed his lips around one berry-like nipple and began suckling hard, flicking his tongue across the tight little nub like a scourge, sending ribbons of pleasure lashing against her clit.

Whimpering, she dropped her head back and arched forward, undulating her hips as she sought more of his exquisite torture.

Roughly replacing her hands with his, he plumped the soft pillows of her breasts as his mouth ravaged her nipples, going back and forth from one to the other, licking, sucking, taking sharp little nips that made her squeal, before soothing her with his tongue.

Spiraling higher and higher toward release, she could feel her juices running freely down the insides of her thighs. God, she was close…So close…

Grabbing her shoulders, he turned her, and bent her forward, smashing her wet breasts against the cluttered, glass-covered desktop. Jeez, that’s cold. She sucked in a gasp as he roughly hiked her skirt up around her waist. Cool air brushed across the exposed skin of her buttocks. “Hands over your head, baby, grab the front edge of the desk and spread your legs.”

“Jesse, please,” she gasped, shoulders straining against his superior strength as he man-handled her into the position he wanted. “Judge Walters’s clerk is on his way over here. He’ll be here any minute!”

“Then I suggest you get a move on, little sub.”

“Jesse, please…” She continued to resist, even as tremors of need pulsed through her until she was shaking all over. Part of her, the prim and proper, sexually repressed part, the part she’d named Angel, told her to defy him, since he was clearly out of line by coming into her office like this, expecting her to just drop everything and have wild, desktop sex. The other part of her, the inner, wanton, hedonistic imp she’d named Dolores, knew defiance was pointless. Knew she’d already lost this particular battle. Just do it, goaded Dolores’s shrill little voice in her head. Let him bend you over the desk. Let him force you to have sex—yeah, like he’d have to force you. After all, Dolores clapped her hands gleefully, seeing she had Sarah’s rapt attention, what’s the worst thing that can happen? The hottest man on the face of the planet will fuck you to the best orgasm of your life, that’s what! Really not seein’ the problem here, sweetcakes!

Unfortunately this was the part that always got her into trouble. Because ever since Jesse and Adam had come into her life, this was the part she always listened to. “What if someone just walks right in? They’ll see…”

“Time’s a-wastin’, Sarah.” Without waiting for her reply, he grabbed the elastic waistband of her teal silk and ecru lace panties and yanked them down until they caught halfway down her thighs, stretched to their limit. “Close your legs.” Barely giving her enough time to slide her feet together, he lifted one booted foot, placed it between her legs atop the bunched fabric and shoved the panties down to the floor. “Step out.”

Kicking the scrap of brightly colored silk out of the way with the toe of his boot, he unzipped his jeans, freeing the iron rod of his cock. With a low groan, he rocked his hips forward, humping his hot, damp cock into the crease of her ass. “Christ, sugar, you feel so fuckin’ good! I’ve been dreamin’ about this all damn day.”

Felicity’s Sweetbread Recipe

me-tr-ppc-chasingfelicity3In CHASING FELICITY Passion Peak, Colorado 4 – the heroine, Felicity Featherstone, is a pastry chef at The Cranberry Roost, Passion Peak’s upscale restaurant. The restaurant and Felicity are well-known for their sweetbread.

In the book, Felicity tempts both sexy heroes Kane Easton and Maverick Orantes, with the bread. What man can resist a girl who cooks?

Felicity asked me to share her recipe with you, because if you venture into The Cranberry Roost, you can eat all the bread you want, but you won’t get the recipe from her.

What you will need:

7 cups of flour, 3/4 cups of mashed potato flakes, 2/3 cup of sugar, 2 packages of dry yeast, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of softened butter, 1 cup of pineapple juice, 3 eggs, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Felicity likes to add just a dash of cloves as well.

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, potato flakes, sugar, yeast, salt and ginger. In a small saucepan, heat the milk, water, butter and pineapple juice to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add eggs; beat until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Shape each into a ball. Place in three greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 3 loaves (12 wedges each).

BLURB for CHASING FELICITY:

Pastry chef Felicity Featherstone falls hard for Dom Maverick Orantes, but he’s not the only man pursuing her. Paranormal investigator Kane Easton arrives in town in search of fake ghost hunter Trace Coleman. He makes no bones about his plans to leave once he’s exposed the man, but Felicity can’t resist Kane’s charm.

Maverick Orantes loved once and lost. He’s reluctant to give his heart away again until he meets Felicity. But Kane has stolen her affections as well, and Maverick realizes she wants and needs them both. As his uncle’s involvement with Trace Coleman’s illegal activities is revealed, Maverick needs both Felicity’s love and Kane’s alliance.

Kane Easton comes to Passion Peak from Connecticut to exact revenge on Trace Coleman for what the man did to his family. But he must leave town once that’s done because of his family and financial obligations. However, if he does, he’ll leave behind the only woman he’s ever truly loved.

Secrets Under the Kilt with Raven McAllen

Raven McallenWell now, I have to say the lovely lassies of the twenty first century, are fair braw.  Och my name is Angus, and I bided in Scotland a couple of hundred years since. Sometimes. As you can see ahm here the noo. Ah, you’re awfy braw…*laugh* Okay I promised my lovely lady Caisti not to pull the old Scots accent. She gets somewhat annoyed with me. So now I only do it to frustrate her.

You see our lives are somewhat complicated, and I have so much to learn.

Take kilts for instance. In my day it was a long piece of tartan and we wrapped it around ourselves. The whole nine yards thing. Now it’s all neat and tidy with hundreds of pleats and stuff. looks around

Some Sassenachs even wear stuff under it. Enough to make a Scotsman turn in his grave. Mind you they probably put dry ginger with their dram as well. And what you modern men keep in your sporran? My peers would turn in their beds! A dirk and a wee dram is all you need, not all these bits of plastic, and rubber and oh… goes a wee bit red I forgot the rubber thingy are a necessity eh? We used sheep intestine.

Ah well my Cairsti tells me I need to move with the times.

Lots of things you have are brilliant. Phones for instance. Not that we have good reception where we live. But if I stand on the hill I can ring down and say I’m on my way home and get ready. Very useful. It’s an hour even on a pony. And these freezer things. When I kill a beast we can freeze it and have good quality lamb all year round. Better than salting.

As a man I can’t say I like all these leggings and jeggings and tights that you ladies wriggle into. How’s a man to get his hands on you? Oh, ah, I hope Cairsti doesn’t see that. She’s always telling me I’m sexist. I don’t mean to be, but I’m a man of my time and its awfy…er very hard sometimes to wrap my mind to accept what happens in your now.

But you know? I have clean air, no noisy  cars and planes overhead and complete privacy. rubs his chin and grins almost. Cat—oh sorry that’s my lady’s nickname, might not agree. There was the time when…Ah no maybe I’d better stop there and tell you our story is in an anthology called Down On the Farm, and it’s available for pre order. (out 27th)

Not only that, Cat says to remind you that the other three stories are amazing.

Cat’s Cradle by Raven McAllan

Being stranded can have it’s perks.

Will Cat decide to stay with Angus, or will she return to a lonely future without him?

Nosy links…

Raven lives in Scotland, along with her husband and their two cats—their children having flown the nest—surrounded by beautiful scenery, which inspires a lot of the settings in her books.

She is used to sharing her life with the occasional deer, red squirrel, and lost tourist, to say nothing of the scourge of Scotland—the midge.

A lover of reading, she appreciates the history inside a book, and the chance to peek into the lives of those from years ago. Raven admits that she enjoys the research for her books almost as much as the writing; so much so, that sometimes she realizes she’s strayed way past the information she needs to know, and not a paragraph has been added to her WIP.

Her lovely long-suffering husband is learning to love the dust bunnies, work the Aga, and be on stand-by with a glass of wine.

What would you give up for everything?

Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed.

The world he gave me fulfilled my wildest dreams, but would that be enough when the past crashed into the present?

Weekend Surrender Pinterest Album with Lori King

Weekend SurrenderMy name is Lori, and I’m a pinning whore. I ADORE Pinterest! I’m not sure if it’s my OCD that enjoys organizing pretty things into a nice neat set of boards that are categorized and labeled, or if it’s the voyeur in me that just loves collecting pretty things. Either way, I love using this online bulletin board to save bits of inspiration for my books. My new book Weekend Surrender, just released and I want to share my visual board for it.

When I started writing Weekend Surrender it was because of this one photo:

photo 1

I spotted this photo on Pinterest one evening and Parker Brooks started whispering in my ear. He was telling me this sensational story about how he and his three brothers made a wickedly indecent proposal to their dream woman, and convinced her to spend one erotic weekend with them. After writing about a thousand words of their story, I knew I had to dig deeper. I came across this picture:

which is my inspiration for the four Brooks brothers, and then this pic (which is my Rachel):

The five of them had me hopping as they told me about their journey from neighbors to lovers.

Rogan is the oldest, and the leader of the quartet of brothers. He is protective, and more loyal than any other character I’ve written.

Parker is the Dominant brother, who is overbearing and jealous but has a sincerely soft center.

Sawyer is the fun playful brother, who enjoys making Rachel squirm, and smile.

Hudson is the baby of the group, but believe me, he is the deepest and the most tender. He is easily hurt, but loves hard.

There are plenty more photos in my inspiration board, plus boards for every book I’ve written on my Pinterest here: http://pinterest.com/lorikingauthor/

Thanks for letting me share! Check out more about Weekend Surrender….

Blurb:

After another painful betrayal and break up, Rachael Morgan sets out on a journey of self-discovery and sexual exploration, but she could have never imagined that she would be agreeing to one wildly erotic weekend in the arms of the four sexiest cowboys in Stone River, Texas.

Rogan, Parker, Sawyer and Hudson are all that is left of the Brooks family line, and they dream of spending the rest of their lives with the luscious Rachel on their ranch. They have watched her grow into a beautiful successful woman, all the while fantasizing that they would be able to claim her for their own.

When fate puts them in the right place at the right time, they jump at the chance to get Rachel into their home and their bed for one weekend. They teach her body, and touch her soul, as each brother’s unique personality draws her deeper and deeper into a well of emotion that she didn’t even realize she had. Now that the Brooks brothers have her, they know they can’t let her go, but can she overcome her own painfully raw relationship scars to embrace a permanent ménage relationship with these four sexy cowboys, or is she destined to live her life alone believing that no man ever stays?

*There is no touching or titillation between siblings.*

Dixie Lynn Dwyer’s Time Capsule….and a Giveaway!

Christina asked me to build a time capsule for some lucky soul to open in fifty years. Well, the time capsule would have to be a bit bigger than most. There are necessities, that can withstand the test of time.

untitled2untitled

There would be a bottle of Francis Ford Coppola Claret, and a Bottle of his Chardonnay, to initially greet the lucky discoverer. One wine glass, easily sharable between lovers. There will be instructions attached to a bottle opener to pour a glass, and enjoy the taste of heaven.

*********************************************************************************************************************************************

imagesCARPFVQM

The next item on the list would be a blow up seat, large enough to prop under the belly and, to lift the ass in offering for some sexy fun after relaxing, and reading a good erotic romance. 😉

*********************************************************************************************************************************************

untitled3

The first book to read would be For the Love of Anna. A thought provoking book on the journey of learning to trust again, after being a victim of violence.

*********************************************************************************************************************************************

untitled4Then of course Lena’s Happily Ever After, so that the reader can see that no matter what walls go up in life to block you from reaching fulfillment and happiness, anything is possible with determination, and the love of passionate, supportive men.

Assuming that our lucky discoverer is not alone, and has a sexy male partner or two, or three, or four, or five,imagesCAP2TDKU or…well you get the idea, along with her, then the little box of special toys will appear next.

In that velvety, burgundy red box will be the essentials. There will be Condoms (just in case), Lube (At least six tubes), fluffy handcuffs, soft rope, butt plugs in various sizes, in a lovely hand carved wood case, and a thick, long rubber cock. Since batteries may not work fifty years later even sealed in packaging, this will just have to do.untitled538608

There will be a list of role playing sheets, to spice up this lucky lady’s bedroom extravaganzas.

An example is Role Play 1- The naughty little woman who can’t seem to accept her lover’s rules and the way they want to care for her. Sounds like a spanking is in order.

*************************************************************************************************************************************************

Their Greatest Fight of All

After reading, Their Greatest Fight of All, the ropes and handcuffs will be incorporated, as her man, or hopefully men, tie her down, and bring her pleasure. Fully aroused after reading about such dominant, physical men, they will all be up for some pain and pleasure.

me-dld-pstbc-theirgreatesttreasure3130903_0117

Then off to POWER SURGE- Their Greatest Treasure, followed by A Billion To One. With odds like that and trying to find the woman to complete them, when these three get together it causes a power surge, like nothing any of them have felt before.

Bring on the lube. This lucky discoverer is going to need it once she’s finished reading all these sexy, provocative tales.
Good luck, and hugs!

Blurb:

Organized, assertive planner, with trust issues, seeks one-night stand. Chiara Costiano thinks it is a plan, thanks to her best friend Heather. Then she meets Cash Corbin and Zane Heston, two billionaires that want to share her and gain her trust. She’s not so easily convinced that they are for real, and that a ménage is what she wants, but they’re not taking no for an answer.

Cash and Zane are looking for the perfect woman. A billion to one is their chance of finding her, and they hit the jackpot with Chiara. She’s everything they want and desire, but she’s caught in a bit of a jam. They’re about to take over her father’s company, and she believes it belongs to her. As if being abducted isn’t enough, Chiara faces crimes of revenge from her father’s past, corporate sabotage, a hitman gone psycho, and two loving men who swear to remain by her side, no matter who tries to break them.

Adult Excerpt:

Zane was on fire. He was so hard right now and aroused watching his best friend feast on Chiara, he could explode in his pants. And that didn’t happen to Zane Heston.

He devoured Chiara’s moans and loved the feel of her hands caressing him, touching him. She moved them along his waist to his back and he deepened the kiss. He explored her body with his hands, cupping her breast, squeezing her hip and then her ass. She started to press against him, and he began to move his hand lower. She was shorter than them by a foot, and he had to bend slightly to reach the hem of her dress. Their lips parted and he pressed his forehead against hers.

“You taste better than I imagined.”

He slowly moved his hand under her dress. She tightened up and grabbed his wrist. He locked gazes with her.

“Don’t be scared. I bet your pussy is all swollen and needy right now, baby. I want to ease that ache. Cash has the door. No worries.”

“Oh God, Zane, I hardly know you. I shouldn’t let you.”

“You were going to let your friend Heather hook you up for sex. There wouldn’t be this attraction the three of us have. The power and energy flowing between us. It would have been a huge mistake,” Cash stated.

“Huge mistake,” Zane said next.

“Oh God, how embarrassing. It’s not what you think.”

“Shh. I don’t want to hear it. You’re going to be ours. Tonight you’re ours.” Zane kissed along the rim of her nose then to her lips. He pulled on her bottom lip as he tapped her thighs for her to open for him. She didn’t.

“Chiara, open for me. Now,” he said in a firm tone that surprised even him. He held her gaze. Her olive green eyes sparkled, and her lips were parted. She rolled her tongue out to lick her lip, and his cock grew another inch. Fuck

“Do women always do what you want?” She challenged him.

“Usually they do.”

“Why?”

He licked along her lower lip then pulled it into his mouth before releasing it. “Because of the end result.” He pressed his hand between her thighs.

She gripped his shoulders, as they held gazes. “Zane?”

“Open for me.”

“Oh God, I—”

“Open for me now, baby. I promise it will be worth it.”

She hesitated and it was pure torture. He could feel the heat of her pussy from a few inches below where his hand sat. He inched higher and she opened wider. When his fingers pressed over the thin silk panties, she jolted against him. Her lips parted and she hugged him.

“That’s it, baby. Let me in. Let me ease that ache.”

“She’s wet, Zane?” Cash asked.

“She’s real wet, Cash.” Zane eased his fingers under the small thin material of her panties. They were thongs. He was sure of it. He was also shocked that her pussy was bare, too.

“Zane please,” she whispered, holding him tight. Her face was pressed against his chest.

“We got you, baby,” Cash said then caressed her hair from her cheeks. Zane took that moment to press a finger up into her slick cunt.

“Oh.” She moaned.

“Shh, baby, we don’t want to draw any attention to the balcony,” Cash teased and then kissed the back of her neck and along her shoulder. Zane adjusted his stance and began to stroke her wet pussy. With each stroke he pushed deeper, and soon she was leaning back against the building.

“God, she looks like a goddess, Zane,” Cash said as Zane pumped his fingers into her. Cash moved in to share in the event.
