Howloween Blog Hop!


Visit http://thebloghopspot.com/event-page/ to do some more hopping!

Welcome to the Howloween Blog Hop! Thanks to Drea for hosting it and to you for stopping by!

As anyone who knows me knows, I LOVE Halloween. I love the sights, the smells of Fall, the crunch of leaves on the ground, and I love the idea that our world may contain so much more than what meets the eye. Several of my family members have had ghostly experiences and I've had a few things happen to me that were hard to explain. I think it's a fascinating subject, and whether or not you believe, this time of year makes many of us more susceptible to things that go bump in the night!

Today, my question for all of you to enter a giveaway
to win one of my ebooks is:
(your choice of any but COWBOY LUST)

Do you believe in ghosts or spirits?
If yes, do you have any real-life experiences 
with them to share with us?

There will be 2 winners chosen!
Just answer the above question in the comments, 
leave your email address, and
become a follower of the blog. That's all it takes to enter!

BAD KITTY 
NAUGHTY EXCERPT:



Nikki lifted her eyes to Patrick’s chiseled face as he tossed aside the devil costume. Underneath he wore boxers and a T-shirt, but he removed those quickly as well. When he was naked, save for the glinting silver disk medallion on leather cord around his neck, he cocked an eyebrow. “Am I to be your submissive tonight?”
“You’re to be whatever I command you to be.”
Enjoying her new role way too much, she lashed his sides with her tail while she did a full circle around his body. His cock wasn’t the only tight and firm part of him. The guy had one hell of a physique. Honed from hours of hard, sweaty work, no doubt, and not on a treadmill. Patrick built and fixed things in the hot sun day in and day out. Which also accounted for the deep bronze of his skin in the flickering lights from her Halloween d├ęcor. She’d saved her biggest jack-o-lantern for this room because she wanted—needed—to see.
And now she needed to take him.
“Lay down on the bed,” she said, stopping in front of him. “And stroke your cock.”
For a moment he stared at her, his hooded gaze intent. “You do understand that if I let you get things started, you won’t be finishing them.”
She crossed her arms over her chest and arched an eyebrow. “Who has the whip?”
“Your whip with a poufy thing on the end?” His scoff nearly made her grin. “Who has the serious weight and strength advantage?”
Without blinking, she stepped forward and shoved him backward on to the bed. That she’d caught him off-guard explained why he hadn’t been able to brace, but she didn’t care. All that mattered was that he was on his back and at her mercy.
“Now,” she purred, pulling her tail up between her legs. That poufy thing managed to make him twitch as she swished it over his sac. “I believe your hand should be right about here.” She flicked the head of his cock and noted his groan with a satisfied smile. “Or would you rather accept my punishment?”

Alpha Male Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Alpha Male Blog Hop! Thanks as always to the incredible Carrie Ann Ryan for her amazing hops!

If you're saying...hey, wait, Cari still needs to announce other prizes or send me something I won in a prior giveaway, you're right! I'm working on a slew of deadlines right now (more books, yay!) and as soon as I can take a breather, I'll get those announcements up and prizes delivered. I always get them out eventually!

Now for the main event...

What is your favorite thing about Alpha Heroes? Well, we authors are ready to share our favorite Alpha Males, our favorite things about them, and everything sexy and heated about those Alpha Males you can think of. *wink* Starting on October 19th and ending on Oct 22nd, over 200 Authors and Bloggers will share their favorite things about those sexy men we know and love.

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!

Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $130 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: The following Swag Pack! (US only)


Alpha males...why we love them!

I signed up for this hop because I LOVE alpha males! Why do I love them so much? In this world where too many people never take a stand, an alpha male is prepared to go b@lls to the wall to protect and care for his family and his significant other at any costs. He'll do what he needs to do to ensure their safety and well-being and doesn't care whose feathers he ruffles. That sort of take charge personality is beyond sexy.

And whoa, what's hotter than a man who takes command in the boardroom and the bedroom? Okay, so the boardroom is my personal preference...a man in a suit will ALWAYS rock my world. To that end, I figured I'd tease you all with my inspiration for Cory Santangelo in book 3 of the Love Required series, NO ROMANCE REQUIRED. Can you say HOLY YUM?


NO ROMANCE REQUIRED will be out soon...in the meantime, check out his delicious inspiration, Chris Pine. And if you're curious to learn more about Cory, check out NO FLOWERS REQUIRED, book 2 in the Love Required series about Cory's brother Dillon!

HOT IN HANDCUFFS Blog Hop!


Welcome to the HOT IN HANDCUFFS blog hop! Finally a hop that celebrates kinky fuckery at its finest and thank you to UNDER THE COVERS Book Blog for hosting it!


In honor of the blog hop, I'm posting a short, sexy excerpt of my USA TODAY bestselling Brazen NO FLOWERS REQUIRED from Entangled Publishing. And yes, you can choose this book if you win!

WARNING: R-rated excerpt of NO FLOWERS REQUIRED!


Alexa moved whip-fast, slamming her hands on Dillon’s chest and him against the door before his brain caught up. The watering can clattered onto the ground. She spared it a brief, puzzled glance, then fisted her hands in his T-shirt and arched up, her mouth coming closer—

Fuck it.

He fused his mouth to hers, and dammit, it was even better than he’d expected. She didn’t yield to him but struggled a bit, as if she was shocked he’d taken over. That made it even hotter. He slanted his lips over hers when her startled squeak granted him access to the warm sweetness inside. Perfect. He took full advantage of her surprise to explore her with long, slow licks of his tongue.

Maybe his head couldn’t compute what was happening, but his body sure could. He cupped her ass and rocked his hips against hers, all too aware of his violent reaction to her nearness. His dick still hadn’t recovered from their bump-and-grind in her bathroom and apparently had no trouble asserting its readiness to play. Recovered now, she didn’t shy away, and instead rubbed against him, her curves sliding against him in a way that had him groaning and pulling back so hard he thunked his head on the closed door.

He couldn’t do this. Oh, God, he had to. She was going wild against him, and he didn’t have any defenses against his hunger for her. Not when he wanted nothing more than this. Just this.

“What are we doing?” he managed as she dragged her lips down his Adam’s apple. Stars danced in his vision and hell if he knew if they were from the head jolt or from their kiss.
She didn’t answer him, just skated her hands down his torso and under his shirt. And what hands they were. She seemed to be touching him everywhere. He clung to her ass as if she was his only port in the storm, and sure enough, a bolt of lightning sizzled overhead followed by a crack of thunder. But Alexa never paused. He’d become her canvas and her fingers were her paintbrush. She sketched every ridge of muscle, every line of bone. And then the column of his cock, wedged tight into his jeans. She touched him with confidence and skill, the kind that would soon have him driving his hands into her hair and pushing her to her knees if she didn’t stop.

But a woman like her wasn’t meant for a quick fuck against a door, even if that was what she acted like she wanted. Even if he longed for her so much that he didn’t care about anything but stealing this moment and making it theirs. He must be misreading her signals, though he was pretty adept at picking up sexual cues. Or else he’d sent some crazy ones of his own.

“Alexa.” Though it took all his faculties just to get out that one word, she ignored him.

Completely.

She cupped him and nipped his jaw, her teeth offering a sharp counterpoint to her palm’s soft touch. His shaft lurched in her hold and she let out a delighted purr.

“Lex,” he tried again, her name ending in a moan. “You don’t know who I am.”
