Smexy Excerpt!

He finished loading their bags into the truck and walked over to her and kissed her. She leaned into the kiss. It was both sweet and sexy, filled with the same passion he showed her the night before. She gave in to it, his heat, scent, and licorice taste. Heat surged through her, setting her nerves on fire. Her nipples puckered against her shirt and her pussy dripped moisture, wetting her panties.

“Mmmm,” Callum said, pulling away with a hiss. “I can taste your arousal.”

“I guess the alpha can wait a while longer,” she replied in between nipping his lips.

They chuckled as they ran inside the house. Stopping in the bedroom, they hurriedly undressed as their mouths hungrily kissed. She reached her hands out and grabbed his shoulders. She leaned onto him as her legs quaked beneath her. She blinked up at him and almost gasped at the glance he directed to her. His gaze was so intense, it glowed. Her skin prickled from her arousal. It was the sexiest thing she’d ever seen. His wolf had power and that was so hot. Her breath shuddered. He kissed her shoulders and her neck, then sucked where he had kissed. Her nipples pebbled because of his touch, while her pussy gushed.

All rippling muscles and hard angles, he was a work of art. Her gaze traveled down his body, toward the stacks of defined muscle covering his abdomen. Her mouth watered at all that tight toned flesh. Her teeth ached to bite into the wall of hard muscle, to nip into the dense flesh.

He took the tip of each of her nipples, suckling them and pulling moans out of her. She fisted her hand around his cock and pumped. His body stiffened as pre-cum coated her fingers. She knelt down and took his cock into her mouth. Thick and long, she ran her mouth up and down its length, savoring his spicy taste.

Blurb

Ven Thorne is a lone wolf with a bad attitude caused by his difficult childhood. Forced to return to pack life, he is tasked with rebuilding the gas station on the outskirts of Los Lobos. Ven works for Ryker, the pack enforcer, and will act as sentinel and lookout when the station reopens.

Caitlyn Burrows has recently returned to Los Lobos with her family. A victim of Magnum Tao, the pack’s evil ex-Alpha, she is terrified of men and her natural omega nature is making it hard for her to make friends. Her family is determined to see Caitlyn happy.

Excerpt

“I said, what do you want?” Ven sounded furious as he took a step towards her and Caitlyn shrank back, dropping the cooler as she raised her hands as though trying to ward him off. The box tipped over, spilling its contents across the scruffy lot and the man swore again. He stepped around the mess of food and drinks, advancing rapidly and she caught his scent, amber and dark wood beneath a layer of fresh sweat. Her wolf, normally so quiet, surged forward and she realized in terror that she was practically toe-to-toe with her mate. And he was mean and angry.

Knowing what it was to suffer at the hands of a cruel man, she turned tail and ran as fast as she could. She plunged towards the relatively safety of the trees, kicking off her shoes and dragging her clothes free as she fled.

Her wolf was whining at her to stop, but she pushed on into the heavy brush. Pausing to shed her jeans, she crouched, letting the shift take her over but making sure she retained enough control to force the wolf to keep running. The wolf howled, desperate to turn back, to catch again the glorious scent of her mate and offer her throat in submission to his dominant presence.

A heavy crash behind had her doubling her efforts and her paws scrabbled over the soft ground, seeking purchase as she ran as though the hounds of hell were on her heels. She risked a glance over her shoulder and an involuntary yip of fright loosed from her throat. An enormous gray wolf was gaining on her with every stride, the snarl on his face more terrifying than the scowl he’d worn in his human form.

She put on another burst of speed, her wolf suddenly in accordance that escape rather than submission was the best idea. Dodging around a massive pine tree, trunk broader than her back, she pulled up short at the remains of another fallen trunk that suddenly blocked her path. A snarl set her in motion again and her claws scratched at the bark as she desperately tried to clamber over the downed tree. The wood was soft, rotten in places and her front legs slid from under her as a huge set of jaws clamped around the thick fur at the back of her neck.

#MWeekTease #Cowboys #Shifter She is Their Mate but She's Human and That Could Mean Danger #MMF #Erotic #Romance



Excerpt From My WIP - A Cowboy Werewolf Shifter Menage Romance coming soon!...




 “In other words, the sooner Jordyn leaves the better,” Reid said looking at his father. His temper flared inside of him at the thought of his mate leaving. “Thank you gentleman for coming. I'd like to speak with my beta now.”
“Certainly alpha,” they said leaving he and Travis alone.
“You look like someone just poured a bunch of hot rocks own your drawers,” Travis said leveling a firm gaze at him. “What's up?”
He knew he was supposed to be able to tell Travis anything considering they're practically mated but apart of him was ashamed to admit that he had feelings for another human. Travis had seen the hurt that Audrie had put him through. He'd been there as he swore them off forever and here he was again about to confess that he was falling for another one.
Travis stood. “You're gonna tell me anyway so it might as well be now.”
He fingered the top of his coffee cup. He suddenly felt like a kid being pulled into the principal's office. “I don't want her to go.”
He snuck a glance at his mate. Travis nodded his head slowly.
“That much I figured.”
“How?”
“You're my mate Reid. I know you better than you know yourself. Besides I could tell by the way you're fussing all over her.”
“Well don't sound so mad about it.”
“Reid I know how this plays out because we've been through this before.”
“This time it's different.”
“How?” Travis asked.
“Because she's our mate.” Reid stood and approached him. “Why you haven't scented that is beyond me.”
“Who says I haven't? You don't think I can smell that perfume all around here? It's making me crazy. But I just don't want my life ripped apart by someone who is not able to accept us for who we really are.”
“We don't know that she's like that?” Reid said quietly. He didn't want Travis to be right. But apart of him thought maybe he was.
“And what makes you think she isn't?”
Reid remained quiet.
“It doesn't matter any way. Her friend is coming to pick her up.”
Reid growled louder this time. Travis flinched.
“How much of her have you scented? You haven't laid claim to her? Or did you?”
“I wouldn't do that without you. As for the scent, I had to carry her to the car and then it happened again when I helped her out of the car.”

Coming Soon!

#YouAreNotAlone sincerely The #Supernatural and #HitRecord Family Are In Unison About #YouArentTheOnlyOne


The Supernatural Family Crisis Network- A Great Cause Created By Great People




As some of you may know, I have been a huge fan of the CW Network's tv show #Supernatural since 2008 when I was introduced or shall I say re-introduced it via the daytime re-runs of the show on the cable network #TBS.

Over time, I've had the chance to laugh, love and shed tears via the FB with other fans of the show (most of us women btw but that's a different story) when the characters suffered triumph or tragedy.

Anyways, the fans of Supernatural or aka The Supernatural Family have been made aware of the struggles that some of the actors have undergone when it comes to mental illness. Over time the cast and crew of Supernatural have been made aware of some of their fan's struggles with it as well and how the show, its cast and fans have given them a reason to keep going- even with a smile.  <3

I can say with all certainty it is not the joke that some movies and tv shows make it out to be. However with that being said, Misha Collins, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have gotten together in concert with Misha's charity Random Acts to form The Supernatural Family Crisis Support Network.

Here's an excerpt from an article in Vanity Fair about the Charity/Campaign:

“Supernatural’s” Misha Collins may be moonlighting as the devil on the CW hit, but that hasn’t curtailed his good deeds off-screen; the actor has partnered with co-star Jensen Ackles to launch a charitable t-shirt campaign called “You Are Not Alone,” which will fund the newly created SPNFamily Crisis Support Network — a fan-led community support system where trained fans can help other fans deal with depression, self-injury, and addiction.

Sales from the t-shirt campaign will help raise the funds needed to develop the community platform, train eligible fan volunteers to be crisis responders, and help get fans in crisis the help they need in their own communities...- Vanity Fair Online Laura Prudom

---

They've raised a lot of money to help fund the charity including the training of support personnel to help those in need of HELP.  They have raised awareness for this charity via a social media campaign called #YouAreNotAlone.  They've even made Tee Shirts with this slogan- sold here:

http://www.creationstands.com/products/jensen-misha-you-are-not-alone-campaign

All proceeds from the sale of these shirts go directly to the Crisis Network.

I've loved and admired their campaign and the response to it.  But it got me thinking about another community of people also started and gathered around another celebrity committed to bringing people together by tv and movie actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt.


His online community HitRecord is a ground up platform where creatives can come together to share their work with others to create or admire others' work from afar.  Recently their efforts have been featured on tv on the Pivot Network and in Joseph's feature films- whereas this community is also a ground up Production company that has provided high end content for the back end work for the dvd's for the movies that Joseph has starred in as well as stuff for Canon, The National Park Service along with other commercial ventures that have been shown on national and international television.

Anyway, they produced a song that was created, produced, sang by and featured Joseph Gordon-Levitt along with other members of the #HitRecord family.  The song was featured prominently in their tv show HitRecord on TV on Pivot that was made for season one of the tv show which was all about the number 1.

The theme of the tv show wasn't about being on top as in I'm Number One!  Or We're Number 1! But about being the first or solitary person-- in this case the only one.

So when I saw the campaign by the #Supernatural Family to support those in emotional crisis by saying "You Are Not Alone," I thought about the HitRecord's Family similar theme about the number 1.

They're song is "You're Not The Only One" made me think about Supernatural's desire to say- not only that You Are Not Alone in this and You're Not The Only One- as HitRecord family says- too.

Below is the video to the Song- You're Not The Only One by #HitREcord on TV in season 1 on PivotTV

This is song is dedicated to everyone who has thought they were alone in this.  And that they were the only one.  You're not.  There is 8 billion people on this planet and believe me "You're Not The Only One."  

Enjoy with love from me and the #HitRecord #Family.

Full Moon Rising by #LexieDavis - He Still Feels The Drive To Be With His Former Mate #Erotic #Romance #MM #Shifters



Full Moon Rising (MM)
by Lexie Davis
Shifters of North Point 1
Siren-BookStrand, Inc.
Heat Rating: SEXTREME
Word Count: 35,284
Alternative (M/M, Gay) Futuristic Paranormal

[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Futuristic Paranormal Romance, M/M, werewolves, HEA]

Ten years ago, a serum was invented to suppress the supernatural abilities of the wolf shifters of North Point. After being injected with the serum, Alex Black moved to the city and away from North Point’s wolf sanctuary, a place he’d called home all of his life. Alex lived a good life in the city as a detective and kept himself in good favor of the mayor. However, when a case of disappearing people brings him face to face with his former lover, Braden, Alex is forced to confront his past and those in it.

Braden Kohler never forgot what it felt like when his lover, Alex, told him he’d been injected with the serum to make him human. The hurt and betrayal burned deeper than he could have ever imagined. Moreover, the way the humans treated the wolf shifters hurt him more. When the shifters declared war on the humans, Braden accepted a role as a soldier in the rebel army.

Now he doesn't want to admit that he needs Alex's help, but his former lover is the only one who can get them what they want. Once they reunite, sparks fly and the desire to rekindle their romance becomes imminent. Can passion between two shifters override the need for vengeance? Or will these two find themselves in more trouble than they can dream of?


 STORY EXCERPT


“I know nothing in our agreement said you had to talk to me, but you’re obviously upset.”

Alex pulled off his pants and stood nude in front of Braden. His long cock hung between his legs, flaccid and perfect. “The mayor wanted to fuck this afternoon, and I may have done something bad to get out of it.”

“What?” Braden asked.

“There was a girl, a nobody really, who worked with me at the station. She was attracted to me and came in my office, stripped naked, and grinded herself on my dick.” Alex rubbed his forehead. “Hell, I knew it would make the mayor back off, so I kissed her. Let her get lipstick on my collar and her arousal on my crotch.”

Braden leaned against the doorjamb. “What’s so bad about that?”

“I think the mayor had her killed.”

It didn’t surprise Braden in the least, but he saw the confusion and hurt on Alex’s face. He really was shielded from the notoriety of the mayor. Braden pushed away from the doorjamb and walked across the bedroom. He still wore the red shorts Alex had given him and nothing else.

“Go take a shower. You’ll feel better.” Braden collected his clothing and stared at him. “The mayor is a very dangerous person. With the serum, you have little power against him. I hope you see that. I hope you understand that every meeting you have is as dangerous for you as it is for those around you.”

Alex rubbed the tip of his tongue along his teeth. “And that’s what you’re here for? To take him out?”

Braden glanced down at the clothing in his hands. “They have Rhett’s sister in a lab somewhere.”

Alex’s face filled with more concern. “Please tell me you’re joking.”

“No.” Braden swallowed. “They took her after they destroyed the serum. The army busts our balls all the time, but they said they do horrible things to her. Worse than any one of us can imagine.” Braden licked his lips. “Erik is part of it too. He has his own reasons. We’ve got more than fifty wolves planning to fight on the full moon. It’s not just me, Alex. We all care about our kind. We care about the future of our kids and getting innocent wolves out of danger.”

Alex shook his head. “You think I don’t?”

“I think you’ve forgotten where you came from. Maybe it’s the serum or maybe it’s whatever you went through. I don’t know. The reality is they need to be taken down. The wolves cannot go on living like this. If we win, great. If we don’t, you can’t say that we didn’t try.”

“They’re my friends too.”

Braden gave him a sad smile. “Were. You don’t know us anymore, and I’m not sure you ever will again.”

He turned to take care of the laundry. The stains were noticeable, and dabbing them with water and a little detergent helped. Braden didn’t know what Alex thought, but he didn’t want him in the middle of it. If anyone went against the mayor, it had to be Braden. He’d never forgive himself if the mayor did something to Alex.

“Hey,” Alex called. Braden turned and glanced over at Alex from the kitchen sink. “You’re wrong. I do fucking know you. I know that when you were a kid you were scared of monsters eating you in the lake. It took me two fucking years to get you to go swimming with me, and even then, I had to float you around on my back because you wouldn’t go out into the water by yourself. I know everything there is to know about you and then some. The first time you kissed me was a dare. The first time we had sex you told me that we could fuck like that forever. As far as I know, I’m the only one who knows what you feel like. Am I wrong?”

Braden stared at him a moment before going back to the laundry. “No, you’re not wrong. I told you that we bonded. I have no desire to be with anyone else. It’s…not possible. You, you’re human now. You don’t have the same reaction I do. It’s different. We’re different.”

“Don’t insinuate that I don’t care about this as much as you.” Alex’s whisper made Braden stop and look over at him. “In this world, you have to learn to play nice with the enemy to get what you want. I’ve gotten good at living in this world.”

Braden set the clothing in the sink. “I’m sorry. We’ve been apart for so long it’s difficult for me to accept that you haven’t move on. That you haven’t forgotten about us.”

“What do you want me to do, Braden?” Alex shook his head. “It’s a two-way street. You texted me, and I came.” He pointed at him. “Don’t think for one second that I’d forgotten anything.”



ADULT EXCERPT


“You don’t get to scare me like that.” Alex propped his hands up on his hips. “I woke up, and I thought something had happened to you.”

It was on the tip of Braden’s tongue to apologize, but instead, he narrowed his eyes at Alex. “Fuck you. You’re the one who got caught. You’re the one who chose to take the serum. Don’t give me some bullshit about scaring you when you did the same fucking thing to me.”

“Oh, I did the same fucking thing?” Alex came toward him. Braden moved slightly, preparing to defend himself as Alex grabbed his legs and pulled him off the sofa. He covered him with his body, pressing him into the hardwood floor as his mouth claimed Braden’s. His knee moved between Braden’s legs as he brushed his hard cock along Braden’s thigh. He’d fought the kiss long enough. He gripped Alex’s head and gave as good as he got.

Alex moaned as Braden bit his lower lip. He’d pulled on a pair of shorts but wore nothing else. Braden slid his hands along Alex’s sides, feeling the hard muscles and how hot he felt in his arms. He wanted him inside now. No playing games. That was for later when they’d had at least an hour or two of hard-core fucking to get the need out of their systems. Braden slipped his hands into Alex’s shorts and cupped his ass, dragging him forward so that Alex’s cock rubbed against his own. Fuck that was hot. Everything about the man was hot.

Alex sat back momentarily to pull Braden’s shirt off while he struggled to push Alex’s shorts down. They were tangled in clothing and limbs, which only spiked the urgency. Braden fought to get his shirt off then focused on pushing Alex’s pants down so he could wrap his fingers around his fat cock. Alex gave a slight grin when he’d succeeded in stroking him and busied himself with tugging Braden’s shorts down.

“You know I’m going to have to leave you to get some lube.” Alex leaned down to nibble along Braden’s neck.

“Go.” Braden let him go. Alex grinned down at him before pushing up from the floor. He kicked off his shorts and turned, giving Braden a nice view of his perfect ass as he walked out of the room. Braden took a deep breath, trying to calm himself down. If he wasn’t careful, he’d end up shifting, and that would be a fucking disaster.

Alex returned as quickly as he’d left and set the lube on the coffee table beside them. He tugged Braden’s pants off and tossed them to the side. He spread Braden’s legs wide enough that his hips could fit between them.

“I need this tight little hole, but I’m in no condition to take it slow.” Alex rubbed the puckered hole with the tip of his finger. “I can’t wait to feel your hot ass wrapped around my cock.”

“Don’t.” Braden pulled him down so that Alex’s warmth surrounded him. “I need you to. Hard. And deep. Fuck me.”

Alex kissed him as he reached for the lube. Squirting some on his dick, he fisted himself a few times to smooth it out. Then he pressed the plump head to Braden’s tiny hole. The stretching was intense. His ass burned, and he groaned as Alex pushed deeper, claiming him. It felt too fucking good.

Braden dropped his head back on a gasp, taking every inch of Alex’s cock inside him. As promised, he didn’t take him slowly. He withdrew, barely giving him time to breathe, and shoved back in, going hard and deep just like Braden wanted. Alex propped himself up, each of his hands poised beside Braden’s shoulders as he thrust inside him.

 Every thrust hit his gland, and Braden worked his hole around him, squeezing his cock as Alex pushed in.

“I want to feel you come inside me,” Braden whispered in his ear. He bit his earlobe before he flicked it with the tip of his tongue. “Your big cock is hitting my gland over and over. I don’t know how much longer I can last.”

Another #Romance #EPublisher Closes #SamhainPublishing


News that has sent shockwaves across the romance publishing and writing community, Samhain Publishing has announced that it will cease operations soon.

I remember when the e-publisher first began their operations.  They took off like a rocket and were soon hitting best seller status for their authors on Fictionwise- yes it has been that long and the burgeoning Amazon--which was a lot back then because it took practically a miracle to get your book listed with them!  Anyways according to this article from Publisher's Weekly- which I will repost a portion of below-- declining sales and the dreaded Amazon had a lot to do with their decision to close.

We are the Amazon of the Borg.  Resistance is Futile.  You will be assimilated to add your essence to our own!  Prepare to bend over....



Here is part of the article from Publisher's Weekly....


In an email sent to authors Friday, Christina Brashear, publisher of Samhain Publishing, a mostly digital romance publisher, said the publisher will begin to shut down its publishing operations due to a steady decline in e-book sales.

“It’s with the heaviest of hearts and a great sadness I bring you the news of Samhain beginning the process of winding down due to our market share's continuing decline. We’re approaching the point where we cannot sustain our business,” Brashear wrote.

In the letter, Brashear said e-books sales at Samhaim have been declining steadily over the last two years. Attempts to renegotiate terms with Amazon for better placement on their site, “have been met with silence.”

She said the house, which was founded in 2005 and was a pioneering publisher of romance fiction in e-book formats, will layoff most of its staff and freelancers. About five staff employees will remain to wind down publishing operations. Brashear said she will not shut Samhain down immediately, and will continue to publish scheduled titles, sell books, and pay royalties as long as possible to satisfy creditors.

Brashear said royalties will be processed on a normal schedule. She said titles that are completed and ready will be published on schedule; and authors whose titles are not finished will have their rights reverted back to them. Brashear also said while she intends to revert all the rights of all books back to their authors, she cautioned that it will not happen immediately.

For the rest of this article please click on the link to Publisher's Weekly....http://publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/content-and-e-books/article/69517-samhain-publishing-to-shut-down-operations.html

---

This follows the closing of Secret Cravings Publishing and a host of others who've had to close for similar reasons.

I have to admit I along with a few of my fellow romance authors are concerned.  We wonder if this is the beginning of the end of small e-publishing houses and will our own respective publishers follow the same suit.

What are your thoughts on this?

#MWeekTease The #Wolf Inside Of Him Wants Her Just As Much As He Does #HisMate #Erotic #Romance #Shifter #PNR #MWTease


He wants her and so does the beast inside of him.  But she is so sexy, he's losing his ability to resist.




Callum panted as his heart pounded in his chest. The change was happening again. He whimpered  as he tried to stop it. He clawed the wall as his fingers extended, turning into long claws, leaving their human side behind. Sweat formed on his brow as he pushed the beast back.

“Hey, you’re up,” Samantha said, walking toward him. “Are you hungry?” 

He turned to look at her. 

“What’s wrong?” She rushed to him. “You’re covered in sweat.”

She led him out of the hall to the living room. She brushed the moisture off his brow and looking at him sweetly. He smiled weakly. He thought about how she’d rescued him and was able to bring him back to her house single-handedly. Strong and courageous, she bore the will of a Paladin. She was such a good woman, she didn’t deserved to be dragged into this mess between him and Eryx. I need to warn her. She has to get as far away from me as possible.

“You need to run. Get as far away from me as you can.”

 “Shhhhh…” she said, stroking his hair. “No, you don’t understand. Eryx, he’s—” 

He grabbed his chest, feeling the beast arise again. 

“He ain’t coming in here,” she said, soothing him. “I told you I can protect us.”

“It’s not just him, it’s me. I may harm you.” 

She shook her head. “You are a good man, I see it in your eyes. I know you won’t harm me. You’re just upset, that’s all.” 

He wanted to believe her. He tried to believe her. But he couldn't trust himself since the mating heat started to consume him.  

“It’s going to be all right. I promise," she said.

Her words comforted him, bathing his soul in a balm of deliverance from the beast within him. In her eyes, he saw light and trust while her body exhibited a hot sexuality. 

“What’s going on? You want to talk about it?” 

He leaned in close and wrapped his arms around her. The base of his spine thrummed to life, butterflies took flight in his stomach, and his breathing kicked up a notch the instant he touched her. With his hand placed low on her back again, he drew her into a searing kiss. Savoring her scent and loving the feel of her body. Her soft curves teased his cock, which was already rigid, fighting to be released from his pants. His mate was the epitome of femininity, and he could spend every moment of his life admiring every inch of her skin.
