Wet and Wild Blog Hop! Contest!


A huge THANK YOU to the incredible Skye Warren for running these awesome hops. I'm a big fan of her work and really appreciate the effort she puts into running an erotic-themed hop (because, seriously, EROTIC BOOKS ROCK!)

To celebrate the WET AND WILD blog hop, I thought I'd share a never-before seen excerpt from DIRTY DISTRACTIONS, book 1 in the Afternoon Delight series, out June 18th from Samhain Publishing. Sara and Brad know all about getting wet...and wild. ;)

Here's the blurb:

She wants a fling, and he wants forever…

Afternoon Delight
, Book 1

Zoologist Sara Carmichael’s active social life is the envy of all her friends, but she has a secret. She’s bored senseless. If she has to go to one more bird sanctuary fundraiser with some guy who thinks his little sports car makes him “hip”, she'll scream.

Enter Brad O’Halloran, her best friend Kim’s much younger brother. A guy who’s picking up the pieces after a quickie marriage and even quicker divorce. A guy so hot he makes her body scream with frustration.

Until Sara’s apartment is renovated, they’re all living at Kim’s place. Despite her determination not to salivate at glimpses of Brad’s finer-than-fine body in nothing but a low-slung towel, flirtation escalates to the brink of something more.

Now one of them has to back down…or ante up for some good, dirty fun with the unspoken understanding that when the time comes, they’ll make a clean break. Neither anticipated they’d make the most complicated connection of all—love.

Product Warnings
This book contains a hero who knows how to make engines— and women—purr, seduction while on cold meds, and a heroine who might be a little older but still enjoys learning a few naughty new tricks.

And you can PREORDER it now, at a discount! http://store.samhainpublishing.com/dirty-distractions-p-7424.html

Here's the EXCLUSIVE X-Rated EXCERPT:

Before he’d had his fill, she shoved Brad back and straddled him, sinking down on his ready cock in a fluid move that stole his breath. Though he watched her envelop his straining shaft and felt every twitch of her aftershocks, he couldn’t fucking believe what he was seeing. What he was feeling.

Sara. Around him. Bare.

As much as he wanted to revel in the feeling of her taking him deep, he couldn’t stay silent. She mattered too much to him, and if she’d had a momentary lapse she would regret later—

"I know," she whispered, stilling his lips when he would’ve spoken. "We’re covered." She replaced her finger with her warm, tender mouth. "Now fuck me like you mean it, O’Halloran."

He wouldn’t make her ask twice.

He pressed her thighs wide apart, his gaze riveted on the show between her legs. Her swollen lower lips spread at his surge into the sweet spot that took him so readily. Her gently curved belly undulated at his strokes. The bubbles obscured way more of the action than he liked, but he drew her up over him, powering into her again and again.

Taking, and giving, and taking more.


Now it's time to talk prizes! (And check out the AMAZING Grand Prize - it includes an ARC of Dirty Distractions!)

First off I can't wait for the book to come out, going on my TBR list! Second, what a great prize to win from you, my fingers are crossed....Now how wild will I get this summer...hmmm I have 2 kids and married, so not that wild I'm guessing. The only wildness will be in my bed with the hubs ;) So I will be mild wild, lol.

well being a single mom of a 4 year old, my wild isn't very exciting. but every now n then me and my friends from high school meet up and party like we did in high school, ok, not so much party, as we just get really shit faced without our kids. ;)
thanks for taking part in the hop, and for the contest/giveaway :)

susanmp said...

So looking forward to your newest release!! I am a stay at home mom of a 3 and 7 year old, my wild summer will be leaving the kids at home with husband and traveling to Authors After Dark in August and meeting all the wonderful authors that I read and new authors that I will soon be reading!

Kerry Pacious said...

My only wild this summer will be packing the car with all 4 kids and heading up to our cabin in the mountains (although 4 kids in a small SUV for a 4 hour ride can be considered pretty wild)The wild will occur when I get back home to Hubby!
Thanks for being a stop on the hop

I probably won't get wild again this summer. My extent of being wild would be to getting another tattoo.

I wish I could get wild this summer, but with three kids in the house - all with different sleep schedules it probably won't happen. It's fun to think about though.

Liz @ Fictional Candy said...

Holy man on a stick, that book sounds so good! I can't wait to read it!

And as for how wild I plan on getting... does buying a kiddie pool and sitting in the backyard with a margarita strike you as wild? meh, me neither, but that's probably the extent of it! LOL!!!

Rachel dosSantos said...

A wild trip to the Boston Museum of Science...doesn't really sound wild but when you have kids that's about as wild as it gets. Along with making sure no one drowns at the beach which can also be considered getting wet right?

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There
was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

scott wilcox said...

Unfortunately at my age I don't get wild much any longer. I think the most wild I will get is reading an erotica book. Now that I am typing this, I realize how sad I sound and may have to do something to change this!

Thanks for the great giveaway.
Best wishes,

I've never really had much of a chance to get really down and wild, sadly I don't have any real plans to get wild or crazy this year.
