#WildAndWicked Wednesday: Taboo Center Stage is Taken Over by @JessBuffett and Her Wolf Shifters #eroticromance #manlove

Welcome to The House of Taboo for Wild and Wicked Wednesday. I'm the Luscious Lia Michaels, your host and owner of these shindigs. This week I'm happy to welcome back friend and fellow author Jess Buffett. She's had one heck of a couple months with the release of a few books so it's an extra treat she's able to squeeze us into her busy schedule and share her new one with us. So grab your seats and your Margarita from Tony at the bar and let's get this show on the road!

Let me first say a big thank you to my host, and Happy Hump Day to all of you. (the crowd cheers wildly)

Need a little pick me up? Well, let me introduce you to something wild and wicked in the form of one of my characters.
When I hear wild and wicked, my mind automatically goes to Dmitri Kalas, my character from Dmitri’s Little Spitfire [Hunter Clan 3].

Standing at 6”6, with long brown hair and piercing violet eyes, Dmitri dominates any room he stands in. Known for his self-control, his violet eyes belie the wild and untamed Wolf that lies beneath.
He is the second-in-command of the Hunter Clan—strong, capable and loyal, Dmitri has a soft side for those in need. As the Yabyu, many things are expected of him, however when he finally meets his mate, Dmitri finds the one area he lacks in is the very thing his mate needs.

So, now that you know a little about one of the main characters from my upcoming release, let give you a sneak peek at what’s to come.


Elijah Collins is ashamed. Used to hurt his friends by Potestas, he now finds it hard to even look someone in the face. Especially Dmitri, his mate. When a truth about Elijah is discovered, Potestas also find out. Now that they know his true worth, he becomes an even bigger target than before.

Dimitri Kalas has always prided himself on being calm and in control. It is his job to help protect his Clan, and most importantly his mate. But when he finds out that the people responsible for hurting the Kayan’s mate have also been abusing his mate, he becomes incensed.

Will Dimitri be able to convince his mate that he is worth love and forgiveness? Or will Elijah allow his guilt to consume him and turn himself over to the enemy in order to keep his friends safe?

Adult Excerpt

Swimming to the surface of consciousness, Elijah cringed at the throbbing in his skull, making things worse. A whimper slipped past his lips as the throbbing turned into pinpricks along the back of his head. That couldn’t be good.

“Shhh, now. It’s okay, I’ve got you,” a deep voice whispered.


Elijah groaned. Dmitri must have found him. Oh, shit. That was not a way to impress. Not that he wanted to impress. He groaned again. He really needed to stop thinking before something slipped out.

“God, I want you.”

Ah, fuck. Something like that.

The warmth breath from Dmitri’s chuckle caressed the side of his face. “Well, the feeling is mutual, little one.”

Elijah frowned. He hated it when people pointed out how small he was.

“Don’t call me little one. I may be on the small side, but not where it counts,” he snarked, his eyes shooting open when he realised what had slipped out.

Where the hell was his bloody filter, for christ sakes!

On the upside Dmitri didn’t seem to be upset with his remark. The Wolf’s eyes were hooded, and a look of lust burned in them. Dmitri looked like he would be more than happy to find out. Uh-oh.

“No, you’re more of a little spitfire underneath, aren’t you?” Dmitri asked, cocking his head to the side in a very wolf-like move.

He had no idea what to say to that.

Trying to sit up, he failed, noting that the lower half of his body was wedged between the mattress and Dmitri’s large frame.

“Um, can I sit up?” he asked nervously.

A smile tugged at the edges of the Wolf’s lips, but he acquiesced, lifting his body off of Elijah’s. Elijah took a deep breath and pushed himself up into a sitting position only to fall back when his head began to spin.


“Hey, you okay, honey?”

Elijah tried to hide how much he liked hearing the endearment. “Head hurts.”

“Mhmm, want to tell me how that happened?” Dmitri inquired, looking his injury over.

No, he really didn’t, but thanks for asking.

“Argh. It was stupid. I fell back and hit my head on the tub and then did it again when I tried to get back up,” he mumbled. “Nothing untoward, just clumsy.”

Remembering why he fell back, Elijah barely repressed a shudder, but something must have given him away because he felt Dmitri stiffen, his eyes narrowing.

“Want to tell me why you’re scared. I smelt fear before, and now.”

“Falling backward like that can scare a person, ya know,” he retorted. Elijah wanted Dmitri to stop asking questions because he had a very strong feeling that he wouldn’t be able to lie to the man.

“Maybe, but not that much, and it certainly doesn’t leave them almost terrified afterwards,” Dmitri said, arching an eyebrow. “Unless you’re telling me you now suffer from an acute fear of the bathroom. Perhaps I should ask Riley if there is a phobia for that.”

“Oh, hell. If anyone knows it would be him,” Elijah snorted. His friend was certifiable and ridiculously smart at the same time. It made for a scary combination.

“He is one of a kind.” Dmitri’s fond grin didn’t please him.

“Yeah, well, he’s taken,” he muttered.

The wolf’s grin turned more... well, wolfish as he eyed Elijah up and down. “Oh, I know. Besides I prefer a different type of fire.”


His confusion must have showed on his face as Dmitri brought a hand up and ran his fingers through Elijah’s copper strands.

Then the light bulb flicked on. “You like my hair?”

“Mhmm. Goes nicely with the little spitfire I see in your eyes.”

Yeah riiight.

“My eyes just make me look like the freak I am,” he said, frowning at the wolf. He didn’t need Dmitri lying to him.

Dmitri narrowed his eyes on him for a moment and Elijah thought he had pissed the man off. Opening his mouth to apologize, Elijah froze as the larger man lowered his head, and he couldn’t make himself protest as their lips met. The hand in his hair tightened, making Elijah gasp and allowing Dmitri to plunge his tongue into the deep cavern of his mouth. Elijah moan at the sensation, feeling like his mate was consuming him.

His mate.

Oh crap, his mate.

Why was it that he could suddenly identify this man as his mate?

Elijah lost all thought when Dmitri’s other hand trailed lower and cupped his heavy erection underneath the thin sheet.

Oh, who the fuck cares!

He found himself arching into the caress and opening up more for his mate. Dmitri growled in what Elijah assumed was approval, pressing their bodies together. Elijah wrapped his arms around Dmitri’s neck, spreading his legs as his mate ripped away the sheet covering him. The cool air on his cock was like a balm on his overheated flesh.

Elijah cried out and bucked his hips when Dmitri grasped him in his firm hand, the tip of his thumb dipping into the tiny slit at the top. His mate kept up the slow and steady pumps of his fist, driving Elijah higher and higher. “Ah. Fuck, yeah.”

Dmitri chuckled. “Such a mouth from someone who looks so sweet.”

“Fuck sweet. Oh, yeah. That feels goood,” he moaned.

Lips crushed to his again as the intensity heightened. Elijah dug his nails in Dmitri’s skin as he thrust his hips, desperate for more. He could feel his balls draw up close and he squeezed his eyes shut, wanting to hold on for as long as possible. He knew he didn’t stand a chance when Dmitri tore his mouth from Elijah’s and dipped his head, taking one of his pink, beaded discs between his teeth and biting hard.

“Come for me, mate,” his mate growled.

Oh My! Monday: @AlexAnthony80 Shares The Next Book in Her Vampire Destiny Series #eroticromance, #vampires, #Ascend

Welcome to The House of Taboo! I'm Lucious Lia Michaels and today I'm happy to welcome back an old friend and many time guest here at Taboo and my sister blogs Behind Closed Doors and Sassy Vixen Publishing,  Ms. Alexandra Anthony just released the fourth book in her Vampire Destiny Series. This one is the next step in Josie and Stefan's journey to find out why the two of them were and have always been destined to be together.  Instead of me prattling on and on, I'm just going to turn over Center Stage to Alexandra and let her tell you all about Ascend (The Vampire Destiny Series Book #4)

A huge thank you for allowing me to stop by and share today on Oh My! Monday.

I’m here today to introduce you to Ascend, the newest book in my paranormal erotic romance series, The Vampire Destiny Series.  I also thought I’d share a little of insight into the series.

My main hero, Stefan Lifsten, is a 978-year-old vampire from Scandinavia.  As the series continues, we find out a little more of his human past.

One of my favorite parts of the series is when I get to write a sex scene with Stefan & Josephine.  My main reason: he’s a dirty talker that speaks in his native tongue. Maybe it’s my own personal fetish, but to imagine a hot, Nordic hulk of a man talking dirty to me in Swedish does something to me—in a very good way. ;)

As the story continues, Josephine also picks up some of his dirty talk tendencies, which I think only makes things hotter!

I hope you pick up a copy of Ascend…if you like dirty talk as much as I do!

Blurb for Ascend

Waking up as an immortal…
Josephine Anderson awakes as true vampire, leaving her half-human life behind. She has little time to adjust to the change however; her evil father has gone missing and wants nothing more than to destroy her and her vampire mate, Stefan Lifsten. But they have other plans…

Secrets and revelations are revealed…
Josephine and Stefan head back to her childhood home to search for the lost journal her uncle kept – a journal that may unlock Stefan and Josephine’s shared past. While searching, Josephine’s world is once again turned on its axis when she meets Liev Banin, who reveals a long-kept secret that will change everything for Josephine….and her family. 

Still reeling from their discovery, they are rocked to their very core when a trusted friend betrays them…and threatens to destroy them all.

*This is a romantic, erotic book. It contains sexy vampires, graphic language, adult content and situations that aren't for the faint of heart. Consider yourself warned.*

Excerpt from Ascend

His fingers linked with mine, but his other hand tugged at my hair, holding my neck back so that he could thrust deeper and deeper into me. He filled me over and over, his mouth leaving stinging kisses along my back and shoulders. When he finally let go of my hair, he pushed gently on my back until I was bent over the countertop.  My breasts pressed against the cold granite, causing another gasp to fall from my lips.

With the blood gone, strength surged through me...I'd never felt so alive, or more powerful.  If I thought my desire for Stefan had been intense before, what I felt now made my previous feelings seem weak in comparison.  Every part of me wanted more, needed more...craved more.

Our minds merged, the overwhelming feeling of being one connected us in new ways I never thought possible.  His blood now ran through my veins along with my own, and I could feel him in every part of my being.  We were one in every way.

Stefan released my hand and spread me open wider, thrusting deep within me with a swivel of his hips. Smiling wickedly, I met each of them with vigor.  The sound of our immortal bodies meeting filled the room, along with our animalistic grunts and moans.  His fingers could play me better than any instrument, bringing me to the peak of bliss. He'd then slow down, plunging harder, and then start all over again.  It was a torturous dance of desire, each time bringing me closer and closer to release.

With one hand, his talented thumb swirled over my clit and my other entrance, while his calloused fingertips skated down my spine, and his palms slapped at my skin just to make it that much more sensitive, leaving it stinging and needy.  My climax came out of nowhere; hitting me hard and making my eyes burn with the need to shed tears.

Suddenly, I was pulled away from the counter.  We fell in a tangled heap of arms and legs, sprawled across the kitchen floor.  Not even close to being sated, I moved quickly, straddling his lap and slowly lowering myself over his hard cock. My back met the muscles of his strong chest as he sat up against me.  He wasted no time in moving me to ride him slowly.

"Come again, älskare," he whispered in my ear as his fingers slipped teasingly down my stomach, swirling across my hipbone. "When your pussy grips me like this, it is telling me it never wants me to leave..."

Moaning wantonly in response was all I could manage as my hips worked over him. It was slow, graceful, and more grinding than riding, but already his touch was winding the coil in my stomach tightly. The combination of his teeth on my neck, his hand cupping my breast, and his long fingers circling my clit sent me over the edge one more glorious time.  A million lights lit up behind my eyes and the scream that I unleashed sounded wild and animalistic.
"Min gudinna," he praised, giving a growl when my hand reached back to weave into the silk of his blond hair once again.  I wasn’t finished with him yet.

Rolling my hips harder, I could feel him harden a bit more inside of me. His fingers that gripped onto my hips held me with a strength that would have bruised or broken my bones before.  We no longer had that problem.  His breathing came in panting bursts, and the most delicious language spilled from his sexy lips. "Det sätt du knulla mig är som inget annat. Min kärlek, mitt liv.  Knolla mig!"* he rumbled, lifting me up and down to bring him to his own climax. The sound of our lovemaking was the second most erotic thing I could recall hearing after listening to him speak in his native tongue.

His thoughts floating through my mind even sounded devastated as his lips brushed my neck.  "This...this is bliss.  Valhalla."

His fangs elongated and he latched onto the spot where my shoulder met my neck, his long growl vibrating against my back as he came with a muffled roar.  As he drank from me, he offered me his wrist.  Without hesitation, my fangs dropped and sank into his skin.  As the circuit completed, it was if an explosion detonated inside of me.  We were joined in every way possible: mind, body and blood.  We were no longer two separate beings.  We were truly one in blood.  Nothing could separate us, the bond unbreakable and complete.

*(Det sätt du knulla mig är som inget annat. Min kärlek, mitt liv.  Knolla mig! = The way you fuck me is like nothing else I know. My love, my life. Fuck me!)
