#FreakyFetishFriday: Taboo Celebrates the Holiday with Surprises! #ebooks #menage #GLBT #foodplay



Welcome to Taboo! I'm Luscious Lia Michaels, your host and owner of this watering hole. By my side as always is the fabulous Tony keeping all of our glasses full of his world famous margaritas. This week it's the spicy jalapeno lime version I love so much. Cheers!

As most of you know, my publisher Sassy Vixen Publishing partnered up with the Four Seduced Muses to create a fabulous Christmas anthology. In there are five novellas from the Muses and myself. Boy did I have a hell of a lot of fun with that one! "Have a Naughty, Naughty Christmas" is just a tad autobiographical. You see, Candice and Gabe were fashioned after Tony and myself. That's right. The rumors were correct! In the future, our partners will make themselves known but for now they choose to stay behind the scenes and let us run Taboo while they take care of Candy Kisses.

I see all of you are a bit stunned once again. Yes, Candy Kisses really does exist and is established on the island that is home to Temptations Resort. You'll get to find out more about that during the coming months, but for now you'll just have to be satisfied with the bit of our...er...lives as they are told in the novella.

Speaking of that, right as you're reading this, Sassy Vixen Publishing has slashed the price of the anthology AND all of the house books by 50% through midnight Monday 12/23/2013 on All Romance ebooks and on Smashwords. To get the discount all you have to do is go to ARe and look for the book. The price will already be marked down. For Smashwords, you need the coupon codes listed in the banners below to get the lower price.

So go on and get your copies of these fabulous books and learn more about the world I write about. Now you'll have to ask yourself if what I'm writing in there happened to me, my lovers or was it all made up.  hehehe! Let me know what you think!

~Lia


Ethan Quaderer is the Great Thunderbird, the creature of Native American legend.  From childhood, Ethan soared high across the land, as one with the majestic bald eagles—only larger and more powerful. Great Thunderbird has one mission, to save the Native American people. But first, he must find his Chosen, his soul mate.

Abraham Tuttle grew up in a household where being different was unacceptable. Forbidden.  He hid his true nature, a Two Spirit—not male or female, but both.  For many Native American tribes, being Two Spirit is a blessing, one to be honored and revered. Not so for Abraham.

Through the Thunderbird dreams each finds the happiness they long for. One dreams of the Great Warrior who’d someday rescue him. The other dreams of the one he’s searched for through many lifetimes.


Dreams turn into reality when both men come face to face in the real world. Can Abraham find it within himself to let go of his past and embrace his future with Ethan, or will his doubts and fears of who and what he really is cause him to lose the only one who could ever complete him heart and soul?



Four Seduced Muses have banded together with Sassy Vixen Publishing to bring five erotic romance stories to life... 

Maya DeLeina’s A Winter’s Ecstasy (MF): During a blizzard, Noel finds refuge with Grayson at his cabin. As temptation builds her self-control begins to unravel. Grayson unleashes her passion, but one question plagues her. Why there are no mirrors in Grayson’s cabin?

May Water’s Ski Bunny Blues (MM): Max is unhappy when his job transfers him to New Hampshire. When online dating fails him he meets Shawn who warms his cockles by the fire. Will Shawn be enough to keep Max with him, or will he walk away?

Nicole Morgan’s Christmases Past (MF): After 12 years of marriage, Priscilla has decided to leave her workaholic husband. Refusing to give up, Max sets out to find her before it is too late. Will being stranded in a blizzard be enough to repair their broken relationship?

Tammy Dennings Maggy’s Meet Me Under the Mistletoe (MF): Coast Guard Steve Sanders is called to assist a sinking vessel. His pregnant wife Jolene waits for his return when the rescue mission has goes horribly wrong. Will a miracle bring him back to meet his wife under the mistletoe? 


Lia Michaels’s Have a Naughty, Naughty Christmas (MFMM): Candice, Alexander and Gabriel own Candy Kisses, the place to be in Detroit. The business partners have kept their desires hidden. When a wealthy playboy extends an offer that allows them to indulge their wildest fantasies, they embark on a very naughty Christmas.

#WildAndWickedWednesday: Author @ElodieParkes Takes Over Taboo's Center Stage #eroticromance #vampire



Welcome to The House of Taboo! I'm Luscious Lia, the owner of this establishment and your host for today's festivities. Actually, I'm going to sit back with my partner, Tony here at the bar while my good friend author Elodie Parkes takes over our Center Stage. The characters from her new release from Evernight are here with her and have agreed to an interview. 

Tony honey, how about another pitcher of those pomegranate 'ritas. Looks like we have a few more folks straggling in. Take your seats and let's get this party started! Cue the spotlight!




Thank you, Lia for that fabulous introduction, and THANK YOU, Tony for the to die for 'ritas!  What do you think folks? Doesn't he make magic with the tequila? (the crowd erupts into cheers and whistles) Don't worry, he'll keep them coming. I swear the man is a machine behind that bar.

Well, now that we're all a bit toasted from the liquor how about you help me welcome  Daisy and Dhruv from A Little Mysterious just released from Evernight Publishing.


Daisy, we’ll start with you. Tell us about yourself and the book you star in. 

The book is titled, A Little Mysterious. It’s an erotic paranormal romance, it’s contemporary, and set in an English town. I get to have lots of yummy sex with someone who arrives where I work. Not straight away of course, but soon…he’s just so deliciously gorgeous and sexy. I want him the minute I set eyes on him. That could be destiny at work I guess. I’m in my early twenties. I work in a café at the time you meet me. I’m just an ordinary girl. As usual like lots of women, I don’t like my figure…especially my hips and thighs…
What? You’re lovely. Don’t you think? (He looks to Elodie for help. She nods as he's looking a bit dangerous at the moment and she doesn't want him to abruptly end the interview.) Readers, she’s pretty, intelligent, creative, sexy. You girls need to ease up on this figure stuff, men like to hold onto a curvy woman.

(Daisy leans over and kisses Dhruv) You love me so you’re biased.

(Dhruv grabs a handful of her hair and kisses her hard) Damn right, I love you.

Will we read anything else with you two starring in there?

No, I don’t think so, although I wouldn’t mind a follow up story about my life now. I can’t say why as that might be a spoiler. I know Dhruv said that too in an interview recently.

So why is that, can you say without it being a spoiler?

Things change dramatically. We move house. I find a couple of my friends…

Tell the readers, and we won’t say anything, to her, what do you think of the author? (Just so you all know, Daisy and Dhruv don't know the person interviewing them is actually Elodie! They've never met her in person. *snicker*)

She’s great. I guess she’ll be reading this interview, but I wouldn’t lie. She wrote our story the way we told her and it reflects the sheer sexual need I feel for Dhruv. I think she captured him exactly, alpha with a hidden soft spot.
Alpha? That’s just what I am coming out, and let’s not forget I’ve been around a long time too. 

If you get the chance to have the author change your names, what would they be?

I wouldn’t like that. My name’s Dhruv. Why would she change it? Daisy is a lovely name (He pulls Daisy into his lap. She cuddles up to him and makes Elodie a bit uncomfortable. She looks to Lia and Tony who lift their drinks to her in salute.)
I actually like my name. It’s unusual. I don’t think many girls are called Daisy now. It’s ‘Gatsbyish’.

Dhruv, give up three of your deepest, darkest secrets.

(He stops tracing up and down Daisy's arm and stares at Elodie with a mildly amused expression.) You’re kidding. Why would I do that? They’re secrets and anyway it could be dangerous to tell you much about me. You do know what I am?
(I’m nodding again. His ice-blue eyes are boring into me now. Are his nails lengthening? Yikes, I’ll ask Daisy.) Okay so Daisy, how about you? Any secrets you want to share?
Not likely. Oh, okay. I’ve recently found out how great skinny-dipping is. I still eat way too much chocolate. I’m a coffee addict…I still drink it almost nonstop, but then doesn’t everybody? All the authors I know do, well, except my author, she drinks tea, and Dhruv, he drinks…

(Dhruv puts his hand over her mouth, kisses her ear, and whispers something to her. There you go they do have secrets after all. On to the next question.) Daisy, what do you love best about yourself?
My hair if it’s a physical thing, and if not, then my compassionate nature. 

What do you like least? 

I’d rather not say. (She glances at Dhruv's face and points to her ass.)

What about you, Dhruv?

I’m happy enough as I am. I’ve had a long time to get used to it.

How do you feel about the book you’re in? 

It’s sexy. It’s a love story, our love story. There’s a twinge of sadness in there to begin with when you hear Dhruv’s back story, but he doesn’t dwell on it.

Can you share one of your favorite parts of the book without giving too much away and tell us why you chose it?

Okay, it has to be a love scene for me. What about you, Dhruv?
Definitely.

He traced his fingers down her cheek and over the love bite on her neck, and the sensation was electrifying. He devastated her with a kiss that was even better than the night before. Her whole body felt heavy with a sexual languor. She felt wetness between her legs. Her breasts ached for his touch. Her nipples were hard against her sheer lace bra. Daisy put her arms up around Dhruv’s neck, molding her body to his. He circled her waist and crushed her to him. The action brought her stomach against his cock and she felt the column hard and thick, enticing her. His kisses had driven her to the brink of desperation. She pressed against him to keep the feeling of his cock on her.

He moved his hands down her hips, and held her under her bottom on the tops of her thighs. He kneaded there as he stopped kissing her to nibble down her throat. It left a trail of delicious shivers down her neck. Another surge of liquid in her pussy made her panties sticky. She arched her neck to have more of his sucking along her shoulder. He drew back from her and Daisy followed him. She put her face up for another kiss. Her need for it made her moan softly.
Copyright Elodie Parkes 2013

I chose it because it’s hot.
Thank you for choosing it, Daisy, makes me want to take you home to bed. (He nuzzles her neck.)

Let’s say they make a movie about this book. Who do you want to play you, and why?
I’d rather they didn’t because we can’t be exposed now can we?

Anything else you’d like to tell us?
It’s been fun being here. Thank you so much and I hope that you enjoy reading our story.
(Elodie smiles. Dhruv nods his goodbye as he stood up, with Daisy in his arms. Before the crowd had a chance to react, they were off.) 

Elodie! Your characters love to make the fast exits now don't they?
(she gulps down half her drink at once) Oh you don't know the half of it! 
How about we get a look at that gorgeous cover of yours?
Excellent idea, Lia!



He’d been sent off course…he thought he was lost…until he found Daisy.

His vampire abilities were special. He belonged to an elite group. Moving home, they are set off course by a storm that lands Dhruv alone, hungry, and desperate in a strange town.
A story of lust, love, and coincidence.

#WildAndWickedWednesday: #Paranormal #Menage Romance Tour Takes Over Taboo's Center Stage



Welcome to the House of Taboo! I'm Luscious Lia, your host and owner of this fine establishment showcasing all that's wild, wicked, naughty and oh so taboo. This week we have a very special treat. Three fabulous authors of erotic paranormal romance are here to answer a few of your question about...wait for it...MENAGE!





This is one of my favorite topics and when they asked me to host them on a stop for their Paranormal Menage Romance Tour I couldn't say yes, Yes, YES fast enough. Before I have them come out to our Center Stage, the servers will be around with your pitchers of margaritas. My partner and head bartender Tony created a huge batch of his his world famous Spicy Jalapeno 'Rita to honor the occassion.  So raise your glass and welcome Beverly Ovalle, Sascha Illyvich and Carolyn Wren!


Thank you for hosting us today on the House of Taboo.  Really, this is a perfect spot for Carolyn, Sascha and I to venture to.  Ménage is just one of those subjects.  It’s spoken of in whispers and laughed about and condemned.  Yet isn’t it every teenage boys fantasy?  How many women would love to have two (or more!) men at their beck and call?  You have to wonder how prevalent this fantasy is when the books are wildly popular.

And what about the authors that write them?  When I read them, I have to wonder, is it experience or imagination?  Yet we all know that if writers didn’t have good imaginations we wouldn’t have such a wealth of tales to tell.  No one has yet proved the paranormal world around us, yet it hasn’t been disproven either.  I think, where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.  So I dream and I write and I wonder and Sascha Illyvich, Carolyn Wren, and I, Beverly Ovalle sometimes combine them.


So, we’ve decided to answer some of those questions we’ve all had and share a little bit about each of us.


Why do you write PNR ménage romance?

Carolyn: This is my first foray into ménage writing.  I’m a sucker for romance and enjoy writing about people falling in love.  I see this as one of the most romantic books I’ve ever written.  My philosophy is, if the love is genuine and true, the numbers don’t matter.  

Sascha: I love the depth of the genre and the multitude of love that can be expressed by more than one partner.  

Beverly: It is a genre I enjoy reading and writing.  No one man is perfect!  Two or more should cover what I need!  In fact, I’m sure the perfect man SHOULD be superhuman. 

Bestiality vs shifter? What is your take?

Carolyn: The inner beast emotions of a shifter in human form can make a love scene really steamy, but once the fur starts to sprout…nope, sorry, keep your distance.  I have just written a book about a human male with a tail, though!

Sascha: Look, I don't understand furries, so how you think I'll understand bestiality!  Though for some reason I find girls with tails hot…


Beverly: A shifter can change into the hottest man or woman of your dreams, strong and protective yet wild.  Bestiality can be titillating in an OMG kind of way did I really just read that?! 

Which character is your favorite and why?

Carolyn: I like Elly, my heroine.  She’s coming up to her first Christmas after the loss of her parents, and it’s making her sad.  Yet in the course of this book, she leaps into a relationship with two gorgeous ghosts, tries to discover a way to break a witches curse, and finds time to play matchmaker for her best friend at the same time.  I do love a woman who can multitask…

Sascha: See now this leads into triad territory. When I created Józsi I sort of based him off Joséf from Endangered (you see the resemblance?) and Vin Diesel.  But his two lovers differ tremendously from Joszí's in that Joséf's second (Isabella) is darker and probably more pragmatic than Lukina, but that may be the difference in age.  Oh and the fact that vampires Livía and Isabella are a few hundred years old, whereas Lukina and Ilona are werewolves and far less old.  I don't know.  This was supposed to be simple!  Who came up with these questions!


Beverly: I can’t choose!  Brand is affectionate and always ready to cuddle.  Tine is more the protector and aggressor.  Annie is lucky to have them both!

Tell us a deep dark secret we'd NEVER expect!

Carolyn: I’m currently writing a book that’s so hot, so boundary pushing, that I’ll have to find a new pseudonym to publish it under.

Sascha: I really don't have any secrets.  People have known for years I'm a little off the wall, I cross dress, have a lingerie fetish, um…yeah.  Pretty much nothing new here.


Beverly: One of the few sexcapades I’ve never done is a ménage! 

Do you listen to music as you write? If so, can you tell us a few of your must-haves?

Carolyn: I can’t listen to music while I write.  It’s too distracting as I tend to sing along or get up and dance.  My car is my music hub.  The stereo volume goes up, the top comes down – the cars top, not mine – and it can be anything from Metallica to 80s pop to Beethoven.  

Sascha: Yup.  Right now must haves include: Stealing Axion, The Apex Theory, TesseracT, Vildhjärta, Textures, sometimes Ease of Disgust and Cilice.  Oh and Elitist!


Beverly: Heavens no!  If music is playing I’m dancing.  I fell off a treadmill that way.

If you weren’t an author, what would you be?

Carolyn: I’ve only been writing for 4 years so I’m still getting used to being an author!  One of my other books features a sexy, kick ass, covert operative.  If we’re talking fantasy scenarios, I’d be her.  In reality my profession is a book keeper, which is much less exciting and offers limited opportunity for cool weapon usage.  

Sascha: I've been saying for years now officially I'd be a musician.  But in truth?  Probably I'd be in Tobacco or alcohol production.  I still may end up in those industries anyway, honestly.  At least as side projects.  


Beverly: What I have been.  I’m a Navy Veteran and the years I spent in were some of the best years of my life.  I gained tons of experience in many things!  Many times I wish I had stayed in and retired from the service.  However, I still work for the government and enjoy all the people I meet and work with.

Well thank you for having us on today.  Here is a short synopsis of our books and the links to them!


Dragons’ Mate

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?
Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

His Reign

Józsi wants to maintain a normal life away from the Opeth pack. Moving from Hungary to Texas was a big change that he felt was necessary in order to avoid a prophecy that would ultimately make him Alpha of a dying pack, a responsibility he doesn’t want.
Ilona and Lukina grew up loving Józsi even after he moved away. Yet the current pack Alpha has gone rogue and begun kidnapping and abusing the younger wolves that remained without mates. Ilona, becomes his next target and Józsi must return to once again deal with pack politics only to find that his heart misses what it could have. Can Lukina and Ilona convince him to return to Hungary in order to rule the Opeth pack and mate or will Kiba destroy them in a fit of insanity?







Ghosts of Grace Cottage

Eloisa Waters is creating a new life for herself. After travelling for twelve months, she comes home at Christmas, purchasing a small country cottage in a sleepy English village, despite the fact its previous owner was a recluse, the original owner was supposedly a witch, and it’s now rumored to be haunted!

On the first night in her new home, sensual erotic dreams surprise and delight her. Only these aren’t dreams. The rumors are true. Two handsome Regency ghosts inhabit the cottage, becoming corporeal at night, trapped by a curse, compelled to satisfy every desire of the new owner.

#OhMy! Monday: Next Stop on Tara Crescent's House of Pain Release Tour #BDSM #eroticromance



Welcome to Oh My! Monday here at the House of Taboo. It's been a bit since we've gathered together on one of the most dreaded days of the work week—for the rest of the world that is. 

Here at Taboo, we love Mondays because we get to visit with our favorite authors and meet new ones willing to share some steamy scenes from their new releases. This week we have the pleasure of participating in the release tour for author Tara Crescent's erotic contemporary The House of Pain.


*shiver* Just the title alone makes me excited from head to toe. This is the third stop for the tour and each excerpt builds upon the previous ones so make sure you check out the list of stops at the end of the post and catch up on the first two if you missed them. Okay, are you ready?  


Boys...cue the spotlight!


I'd like to introduce you to my new erotic contemporary romance The House of Pain. In it you'll find spanking and flogging—two of my favorite "lite" BDSM elements. It was released on November 10th and I couldn't be more excited about it. Let's take a look at the blurb:

Sara White is outwardly a good girl; she follows the rules; works in a professional office; has a boyfriend who treats her with consideration. However, deep inside her, there’s a craving for pain, a desire to be spanked and whipped, to be submissive, to be controlled.  

One day, she walks into the House of Pain, a sex store in Toronto that also does shows in the back, where women are whipped and spanked in front of an audience. Transfixed by the idea, she signs up. 

Doug Patterson has met Sara at work, but discovers a whole new side of her when he sees her at the House of Pain. He approaches her and suggests Sara become his submissive. Sara is attracted to Doug; but afraid of complication. 


Will Sara surrender to Doug, and yield to her desire to be submissive? 

But wait! There's more. Here's an excerpt...

Tara’s note: Sara has received a phone call from Doug’s admin assistant, setting up a lunch meeting. She’s oddly perturbed by this meeting; wondering what Doug could want from her… 

She hangs up, I look up Doug. I whistle silently. Doug is the Vice-President of Strategy. I vaguely remember meeting him about a month back, just after I’d broken up with Colin, at a work meet-and-greet. He reports to the COO – he’s a big deal. I wonder what the heck he wants to meet with me about. 

I’m distracted all morning. I’m oddly uneasy, though I should be jubilant about my job offer.

I walk to the restaurant I’m supposed to meet Doug Patterson at. It isn’t far, and it’s still lovely and warm in Toronto, summer just easing into fall.  

I recognize Doug, he’s already seated. He gets up when I walk in; shakes my hand. 

“Sara, thanks for meeting me here at such short notice.” His voice is nice. Confident, but not arrogant. The voice of someone who has a very good idea who he is, what he wants, and is totally comfortable with it. He’s about 6ft tall; short dark hair; he’s good looking, but in a normal guy kind of way; and more importantly, no wedding ring.

“Focus, Sara…” I scold myself. He’s a Vice-President at my company. Not in my league. 

“I’m in back-to-back meetings all day, I have a hard stop at 1.00pm,” he says. “Do you mind if we order right away? The waitress has promised to get the kitchen to hurry with the food.”

“No worries,” I mutter. I quickly order the lunch special of the day; Doug does the same. The waitress sets our drinks down, and leaves to put in the order. 

“This is a bit of an awkward conversation…” Doug says, looking at me, once we are alone. “You see, I was in the audience last night at the House of Pain…” 

I am in the act of taking a sip of my water; I stop, mid-sip. My mind goes blank. I am completely, utterly horrified. 

I speak, and my voice is the merest whisper. “Are you trying to blackmail me?”

About Tara

Hello, I’m Tara Cresent. I’ve always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true! 

Sort of. 

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance. 

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in. 

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work.  My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it. 

From time to time, I blog about what I’m writing at http://www.taracrescent.com. The blog is also where I post book excerpts; highlight information about upcoming promotions, and so on and so forth. Follow me there to keep up with all the fun!

#WildAndWicked Wednesday @PalomaBeck Tours With Her New Release #TouchMyHeart #erotic #spanking



Welcome to Center Stage at The House of Taboo. This week I'm thrilled to have again our friend and fellow author Paloma Beck. Taboo is the fifth stop on her Touch My Heart Release Tour.

For this one, she's giving away a free copy of her book with each stop. All you have to do to enter to win is answer the question she poses at the end of the post. Now, each stop has a different question so you have 12 chances to get entered to win. The other fun part is that Paloma set up the excerpts to build upon each other. Another great reason to check out all the stops.


This book features a bit of BDSM...spanking! You know I love me some spanking. ummmhmmm

Enough of the set up! Let's get on with the show!


Blurb

William knows exactly what he wants. He saw what his parents had and he plans to have that kind of love for himself. He just has to convince Aubrey she’s perfect for him. He attempts to take it slowly, cautious of her weariness and his own preoccupations. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until Aubrey agrees to be his. That’s where the rest of his life begins…


… even while another part of his life begins to crumble. He finds the foundation of his own family rocked. With William’s future not in his control anymore, he needs Aubrey as much as she needs him. There’s solace in knowing you don’t have to go through life’s heartache alone.

Excerpt

© Touch My Heart, Paloma Beck, 2013
“Take off your clothes.”
“All of them?”
“Yes.” This was her first test. Would she obey me? Would she question my command?
“But…”
I raised an eyebrow. She was nervous. Her shaky fingers told me that without needing words to confirm it. I wanted to reassure her but that wasn’t what she needed. Aubrey needed my strength. She’d use it to build her own.

“Aubrey, I thought we established our rules earlier. Unless you wish to use your safe word, remove your clothes.”

She stood rigid, hesitating for just another moment but I saw her fingers twitch and move toward the button of her pants.

“What is your safe word?” I asked, reminding her subtly of her power.

“Caterpillar.”

“Right. Would you like to use your safe word and go home? Perhaps you aren’t as ready as we’d hoped?” I hadn’t finished my last question before she began unbuttoning her jeans. She was battling with herself but her desire for me–for this thing between us-was winning out. That’s my girl.

I couldn’t take my eyes off her as she unveiled her body. She went so very, very slowly and it was robbing me of my sanity. Each piece of revealed flesh was pristine, pure and absolutely perfect. I took a deep breath when she stood in only her bra and panties.


“You’re as beautiful as I imagined.” I spoke even as I pulled her to me. I had to touch her. First, her face, her collarbone, the curves along the outsides of her breasts, and down along her hips until I had the globes of her ass in my hands. I leaned my head against her stomach and pulled in her scent. Her essence surrounded me and it was both sweet and provocative.

CONTEST

Paloma is offering a DAILY CONTEST during her release tour to WIN an ebook of Hold My Hand, book one in the Heart And Soul series. Enter to win each day by answering the QUESTION in the COMMENTS section of that day’s post. The question must be answered to be eligible. The commenter needs to provide their email address and preferred ebook format.


TODAY’s QUESTION

#OhMy! Author Lia Michaels Shares a #CoverReveal and #Blurb for a new Christmas Anthology



Welcome to the Center Stage at House of Taboo. It's Oh My! Monday and I have a very special post for you today. It's COVER REVEAL day for the Four Seduced Muses/Sassy Vixen Publishing Christmas anthology. I'm one of five fabulous authors contributing to this one and thrilled to be included.

My novella in this one is called Have a Naughty, Naughty Christmas, and my first menage a quatre. That's right. In this one you'll have one babe and THREE hunky dudes having a hell of a lot of fun in HAWAII!  

At first I had thought of having the entire book set in Detroit Metro area, but ended up having the international playboy hero take everyone to his estate on Maui for business and pleasure.  This novella is just a piece of the full novel I have planned called Candy Kisses.

Since my piece is still "under construction" aka edits, I don't have an excerpt to share with you all today. I do have the blurb!  

Candice Monroe’s restaurant, Candy Kisses is the place to be during the holidays in the Detroit Metro area. The menu of old classics and one-of-a-kind specialties keep customers coming back for more. As a result, she and her partners don’t have a moment to breathe let alone act upon the growing sexual tension building between the three of them.

Former Marines and sometimes lovers, Alexander Rabinov and Gabriel Jacobs help keep the restaurant running smoothly. Alex’s culinary skills and Gabe’s expertise as pastry chef combine well with Candice’s vision for the future of the business, and her secret desires.


Just when the men are about to act on their feelings and whisk her away for a much needed vacation, international playboy Darrin Bryant calls with an offer they just can’t refuse. He’ll front the money for Candice to expand the restaurant if they spend the holiday weekend catering a gathering at his home. The offer came with one more stipulation. Candice is to act as Darrin’s companion in front of the guests, but he made it clear he wished for more—from all of them. 


Will Darrin’s proposition come between the trio, or help them fulfill their wildest naughty Christmas fantasies?  

Now for the big reveal...

“Sensuous Promo’s Presents - Book Tour for The Beginning of Forever by Vallory Vance”



Welcome to the fifth stop in Sensuous Promo’s Book Tour for Vallory Vance’s, The Beginning of Forever

About The Beginning of Forever ~

The story of Amber Grayson and Kevin Miller began with a flash fiction piece, Rainy Day Surprise, about the couple enjoying a rainy afternoon with the help of a new toy. Much to my amazement, I received a lot of encouragement from readers to write more about this sexy man, his uptight girlfriend and the naughtiness that went on when they closed the doors.

In the Moment, was born. This short story chronicles how the sometimes pushy office manager managed to wrangle herself a cowboy. Amber is in full dictator gear in this one. And she should be because she’s the Project Manager and Kevin’s boss. Undaunted by the towering woman in her constricting black suit, Kevin has a lot of fun peeling her out of it.

I am pleased and little sad to let this couple go after our year together. It has been an awesome ride with them and one I hope you’ll take.



The Beginning of Forever by Vallory Vance

Amber Grayson, a conservative executive, found true love with fiancé, Kevin Miller. He infused her life with a sense of adventure and challenged her thoughts about appropriate bedroom behavior. After such a steamy affair, Amber was expecting nothing less during their engagement.

Even with the rushed timetable for the wedding combined with the stress of merging their households and finances, Amber is excited to begin a family with the man of her dreams. However, the beginning of forever is more difficult than either of them thought.

Locked in a battle of wills, Amber and Kevin find their commitment to each other and their future tested. Is this the beginning of their lives together or the end?

Excerpt (R) 

“Of course I love you.” She scooted forward and kissed him. 

He quickly caught her neck, held her so that he could feel the warm rush of her breath. Her kiss held no passion, and felt like one you’d bestow on a friend. He needed assurance that she was with him until the end, no matter what. 

“How about ‘I want you so bad’?” He moved his lips over her throat and felt a beat brush against his mouth. 

“Tell me.” He nipped at the delicate skin of her neck, tasting the spray of scented mist on his tongue. 

“I want you so bad.” 

The husky pant of her desire pounded in his head and stilled the quiver in his chest. She was his again. 

He yanked the rim of the T-shirt over her head, ripped the short shorts and panties down her legs. Reclining back on his haunches, he massaged between her legs, his fingers slickening with the motion. His. 

Her hands twisted into the pillows, flopped at her sides and her moans filled his ears. He slipped his fingers into her, watching her move, while his cock thumped unmercifully against his zipper. 

“Just let go, Amber.” He bent over, caught her mouth, and thrust his tongue inside. Her moaning deepened and her eyes squeezed shut. Bucking wildly beneath him, she tore her mouth from his and warmth rushed around his fingers. He kissed her gently and rose from the bed, removing his clothes slowly. 

Dark wisps of her hair fanned out of her braid onto the cream pillow bunched beneath her head, and her large wide-set eyes fluttered open to meet his in a soft gaze. Her lips parted to speak but only expelled a shallow breath. There was a part of him that wanted to watch the trailing of her hands from her neck on their languid journey down between her breasts. And there was a part of him, a stronger part, which draped her trembling thighs over his forearms and lunged into her.
