Kissing Party!

Hello My Twisted Lovelies!

Since it has been a few weeks since I have last posted.... Let me wish you all a belated Merry Christmas...

and for those of you that celebrate something other than Christmas, well just concentrate on the Hay *grin*

So, now that we are in the recovery week before we all go out and become social butterflies again, I wanted to invite you all to a Kissing Party to welcome in the New Year!

This party is being hosted by Kay Berrisford & Tara Lain and I bet you are wondering what to expect from a kissing party, huh? Aside from kisses? Well, Kay & Tara have thrown together this shindig so that you, the reader, can read some of the hottest first kisses in print! Wet your appetite for kisses and check out their blogs.

I sent them the first kiss between Mike & Johnny in Brothers By Bond.

And because I love you all soooo much, here it is for you to read!

A noise from the front of his house pulled him out of his heartache party and he stood up from the table. Mike scrubbed his face with his hands and started toward the living room. Johnny must have forgotten something or else his back to kick my ass. Mike made it as far as the kitchen archway before he encountered Johnny.
Fuck, he's pissed.
Mike had no time to say anything and barely got his hands up when Johnny grabbed him by his T-shirt and slammed him so hard into the side of the fridge that Mike heard the bottles inside rattle.
"You're not getting off the hook that easily, Mikey." Johnny slammed him against the fridge again to emphasize his point.
Mike brought his hands up, palms flat against Johnny's chest, to prevent Johnny from slamming him again. He could see how pissed off his best friend was and knew he should just let his brother beat the shit out of him. Hell, he probably deserved it after last night, even though he couldn't remember what happened. However, he wasn't going to stand there idly and allow his best friend to kick his ass.
"Let me go, Johnny," Mike's voice was surprisingly calm even though his heart was pounding a mile a minute.
"Fuck that!" Johnny growled and Mike felt his best friend tense again as Johnny's hands tightened on Mike's T-shirt.
Mike's reply died on his lips as Johnny pulled him forward into a rough kiss. The shock of feeling his best friend's lips against his own short-circuited his brain and he didn't react at all. It wasn't until Johnny pulled back from him that he snapped out of his daze.
Sky blue eyes stared into his own chocolate brown as Johnny seemed to wait for his reaction. Mike's body was steps ahead of his mind as his hands tightened into fists on Johnny's T-shirt. So rough was he, that when Mike pulled his best friend to him, they both slammed into the side of the fridge again.
Mouths crashed against one another so hard that their teeth clacked. A lip split, whose it did not seem to matter even as the metallic taste of blood mingled with the kiss. Hands tore roughly at clothing, yanking and tugging, as both men fought to feel more skin. T-shirts were pushed as high up as they could go without breaking the kiss that seemed to be devouring them. Nothing was soft or slow as each man tried to feel more the other.
Mike barely registered the word but lifted his arms when the insistent tugging at his pits did not stop. His mouth did not leave Johnny's until his shirt gave him no choice but to break the kiss. Johnny's lips were back on him the moment the T-shirt cleared his head. Kissing. Licking. Biting. None of it gentle, not like a woman, as if he had a thirst that just couldn't be quenched.

Want more of my love? Well, I have decided start the New Year off by giving away a copy of Brothers By Bond. Just enter below... and you can earn more entries by stopping back daily to Tweet about the giveaway & Kissing Party!

The Next Big Thing Tour!

So, what is the 'Next Big Thing'?

Well, that is for you, the reader to determine! Authors like E.L. James (Fifty Shades of Grey) and J. K. Rowling (Harry Potterwere unknowns until fans made them super stars for the stories they wrote! Well, like these famous authors, there are many great stories out there just waiting to be discovered by readers such as yourself! 

 This blog hop is like a game of tag. One author posts and tags five other authors who link back to their website the next week and tag five new authors. If you follow the blog hop long enough, you’re bound to find some books you’ll love! Maybe you’ll even discover a book that ends up being the next big thing.

I was tagged by Lakisha Spletzer (Thanks Kisha!) who was tagged by Flossie Benton Rogers.

This blog hop includes ten questions to help you learn more about an author’s current work in progress, so here’s a little info about my my recent publication:

1. What is title of your book?

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
As crazy as it sounds, the character Sin, herself. But the nightclub Shadows was inspired by the different clubs in the party district of Tampa, Ybor City.

3. What genre does your book fall under?
Paranormal erotic romance in general but each book falls into its own sub-genre of M/F, M/M, M/M/F BDSM. There is something for everyone :)

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters?
This is a hard question since I am not really a big movie person. I think if my Shadows series ever went to TV or a movie, I would survey my fans and see who they envisioned for each character.

5. What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
The Tampa nightclub Shadows employs those who have many secrets that they would rather not share with 'normal' club goers... and sometimes not even with each other.

6. Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
Every book in the Shadows series is self published but available in both print and digital format. 

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Embracing Sin took about two months to write. The others in the series did not take as long.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I have had fans compare this series to Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series and Charlene Harris' True Blood series.

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
After writing my first novel, Fates, which was an epic fantasy, I wanted to try something different. After coming home from Ybor City after a night of club hopping, I thought to myself... self, this would be the perfect place for paranormals to hide in plain sight!

10.What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
Every book in the Shadows series has something for someone but I think what really grabs the reader is that the characters are not your typical supernatural/paranormal types and they all have very human hangups. I have even been told that my fans 'know' someone just like one of my characters and I think that makes them more believable.

I hope you have enjoyed learning a bit more about my Shadows series. I will note that due to the adult sexual nature of my romances, that this series is not intended for readers under the legal age of consent in the country in which they reside. If you would like to read the first chapter of each of the Shadows books (or any other book I will or have written), please check out my website.

Now to refer you to some other authors! 

As a bonus for stopping by, I am giving away the first book in the Shadows series! Good Luck!

The turkey has been eaten....

Hello my lovelies!

Now that the turkey has been eaten...

Black Friday (which has somehow morphed into black weekend!) is over,

and cyber Monday (which has morphed into Cyber week?) has passed....

We can get on with the chaos of the holiday's! 
I wish all of you a happy _________ (fill in the blank with whatever it is you celebrate).

I myself, celebrate Yule.

Which, as the most observant of you will note, happens to fall on the very same day that the Myan calendar ends... December 21, 2012.

So, just in case the humor above does not prove to be true, I want to send you all into the holiday's with my love and thanks for being my fans, friends, and family.
Have a great holiday season!
