Sneak Peek Sunday 02/24 – No Toys Tonight

I have a new release coming March 1 with Sybarite Seductions. It’s in their Daring line. A very cool idea where there are two stories, his and hers. You can buy each one individually or both of them.

Mine is a delicious case of mistaken identity that leads to some fun playtime in the back of a car. But I can’t tell you what kind of car. That’s up to you to discover.


Girls night out at a male strippers. At first Fiona thought it was just what she needed, let her hair down and go wild. But when things start getting a little bit out of hand, she bolts right into the car of a very sexy voiced cabby. Or so she thought. Nearly blinded by the blowing dust, it takes her a few moments to realize her mistake.

After a rough work day, all off duty cop Reid wants is pizza, beer and to watch football. But fate has other plans for him. A gorgeous beauty flags him down outside a strip club and his sense of duty makes him stop.

A classic case of mistaken identity sparks a dangerous attraction that can only be satisfied with a daring sexual encounter. Is the risk of discovery too great, or the freedom of anonymous stranger sex even more delicious than denying the lust between them heating up the car?

Hard Re-entry

Re-entry is tough. What kind am I talking about? The kind that happens when you finish your vacay and have to come back to the real world. And emerging from an event that rattles your world.

After a horrible two months, I finally got a week away with Meat Man. He surprised me with a trip south – which was so needed but took a while to get there. It was wonderful, relaxing and everything one needs to recharge the batteries after a heart wrenching and life changing event that happened just before Christmas.

One thing I have learned is life does go on and even if it’s hard, you got to get on the train and not miss the stops along the way. The writing is slowly coming back and I have three releases coming up. One on February 22 – Fondled and Gobbled: Going Back For Seconds with Ellora’s Cave and March 1 No Toys Tonight – One Adventure Twice Told with  Sybarite Seductions. One other that I can’t talk about just yet but, soon :)

I guess this means I’m getting my muse back :)

These next releases are dedicated to my mom, Doris. I also told her the night before she died I would create a special character for her. Now I just have to find the right story. For mom, who supported me in every way. Miss you more than words can say. xo

Sneak Peek Sunday – 02/10

This week, I’m posting a snippet from my story in Fondled and Gobbled: Coming Back for Second.

Keep ’em Coming
“Okay, ladies, if the spotlight finds you, then get up on stage or you might miss the chance of a lifetime.” Mack, the manager of Keep ’em Coming strip club was on stage trying to whip the women into a frenzy.

Rayvn’s eyes looked around the room and panic filled her. She simply had to have this lap goingbackforseconds_msrdance! She sat taller and couldn’t keep quiet.

“Oh, oh, oh, oh,” she shouted. “Me! Me.” She stared at Mack, willing him to look at her. Sending mind messages for him to pick her. She needed this dance.

Pick me, pick me. I hope your dick falls off if you don’t. Even his penis was her friend. Yes, they are all my friends. Not a scary dragon snake like she thought until her therapist explained otherwise.

Yes, this is my therapy. Lap dance is my therapy. To get me over my cock fear.

The spotlight beam careened around the room, casting pale blue light over the audience of screaming women. How could she make herself stand out of thi s seething mass of high-pitched women?

They’d been told to stay in their seats. No standing or it meant automatic disqualification. What could she do?

Dare to Play?

Have you ever fallen to your knees for a man? Get a little taste of what it could be like with Eden Bradley’s newest release Breaking Skye. I met Eden last year before RWA and was thrilled when she came to our Passionate Ink party as one of our speakers. She’s very knowledgeable and makes you want to know just a little bit more.

I’m thrilled she is visiting us and talking about Breaking Skye. Can’t wait to read it myself. Eden has a little challenge for ya’ll, are you up to it for a chance to win some of her fabulous books? I dare you.

Thanks for coming to play with us, Eden.

I’m so excited to be here today to talk about my hot and romantic BDSM story BREAKING SKYE. I really love this story. I know—we authors are supposed to love all our books, and we do, but some just stand out. I think in this case it’s the hero.

Adam Dunne is one of those men who can make you want to drop to your knees from across a room. He’s gorgeous, sophisticated, and he absolutely reeks Dominant! No one could possibly say no to this man. But he’s very careful with his responsibilities—and if he’s taken you down to your knees, his responsibility is you—so you know you’ll never come to any harm in his hands. *girlish sigh*

Because after all, having him ‘hurt’ you and ‘harm’ you are two different things. Sometimes the hurt is fun…like a nice little spanking…flung across his lap, one of his strong hands in your hair, pulling tight, making you want to be right there doing exactly this. Making you need to be…oh, yes, that’s Adam. My kinda guy.

And he’s Skye’s kinda guy, too. Oh, she fights it a bit—it’s in her nature. But watching her struggle is one the things that captures Adam’s attention, fascinates him, until he can’t do anything but have her.


When power play becomes more than just a game…

BDSM. Submission. Spanking…These are the things Skye has always craved, the desires she has never allowed herself to explore. Until now. She thought she was looking for a single experience, something to purge these strange yearnings from her system. Instead she finds a man whose absolute authority and stunning good looks leave her breathless, willing to do anything he asks of her. But only for one night…

Adam has other ideas. Skye could be the perfect submissive once he’s done training her—for someone else. For him, that’s always the way it’s been. But Skye is different. Enticing. Intoxicating. Irresistible. Soon all he can think of is breaking Skye—and keeping her for himself.



This could not be him.

This man… he could not be the man who would strip her bare, put her on her knees and do unspeakable things to her. Lovely, wicked things she had only ever imagined in the darkest corners of her mind. He was too perfect for the role, as if he’d stepped out of her fantasies. But she knew the moment he stepped into the café and she caught the first stunning glimpse of his face that he was the man she was there to meet.

When she’d posted her ad on the website her cousin Esme had told her about, she’d imagined finding a man with an air of command. A man who lived by the ‘Safe, Sane and Consensual’ credo. A man who could guide her through this experience with practiced, capable hands. He was all of those things, she knew, from their two weeks of communicating via email.

Confident. Commanding. Intelligent. Kinky. And he came with the best possible references from others who knew him in the kink community. He had it all, on paper. And in person…he was almost too beautiful to be real. Like some fallen angel with his evil-looking goatee, his sharply-honed bone structure, the way his dark hair, worn a little too long, fell into his eyes. She watched as he approached, broad shoulders shrugging their way out of his black wool coat. Adam Dunne had an enormous, palpable presence that mirrored his size—she swore she could feel it emanating from him.

Power. That’s what it was. Power and a stark male beauty that made her breath catch.

Pull yourself together. He’s just a man.

Except that he was so much more. She knew it in that very first electric instant.

She took in a breath of the coffee-scented air and forced her fluttering pulse to calm as she pushed her long hair from her cheek.

He stepped closer and as he pulled his coat off she saw him shiver a bit at the damp San Francisco cold. Perhaps he was human after all.

He was beautifully dressed in a way that seemed almost European to her: black slacks that looked as if they’d been custom-made, a thin, dark wool sweater, a gray scarf looped casually around his neck.

He spoke her name in a low voice that felt like a caress. “Skye.”

Certainty in his voice. She had a feeling this man never doubted himself. That no one ever doubted him. A Dominant through and through. What had she heard this kind of man called in her research on the Internet? A ‘true Dominant’?

He smiled crookedly, just a small quirking at one corner of his mouth. There was a scar on his lush lower lip, which made her want to reach out and touch it, just trace it with her fingertips.

Of course, she would never do such a thing. Definitely not with a man like him.

“You are Skye?”

She curled her fingers around the handle of her tea mug as she looked up into eyes that were a dark, dusky blue framed in thick lashes. “What? Yes. You must be Adam.”

He nodded, took her free hand as he slid into the chair across from hers. He held on a few moments too long, the lambent heat of his touch making her wonder if she wanted him to let go. Making her want to yank her hand back to safety at the same time.

She had never in her life thought herself to be in over her head with any man. Until now…


BREAKING SKYE is out now, and can be found on Amazon and Smashwords, with B&N and more online retailers to come soon! You can find more info on my website: or my group blog: or by following me on twitter-I’m always there-lol!

Have you been Fondled & Gobbled?

A new book has been unleashed on the world. Are you ready? Are you?someonehadtodoit_msr

At little bit about us…nine  authors met at Ellora’s Cave Romanticon 2012, and a writing and support group was formed: the Cabal of Hotness. We decided it would be fun to do a series of erotic spoofs, and after pitching the idea to Ellora’s Cave, Fondled and Gobbled was born.

Fondled & Gobbled: Someone Had to Do It is released today at Ellora’s Cave.

The perfect man—with the imperfect cock and oral skills. The Dom who isn’t a dom, and the man who proves it to him. The alien with dessert-flavored semen and three cocks. The older man (a kajillionaire with a penthouse in Seattle…) who has limitless ability to come all night with his naïve little virgin. A woman on a diet who craves a feast of meat and finds herself five Broadshaft Brothers who can deliver.

If you’re looking for the perfect romance with the perfect hero and heroine, this isn’t it! This is a series of spoofs, parodies, just-for-fun lighthearted take-offs. It’s for all us longtime, hard-core romance readers who can laugh at the clichés, purple prose and “suspend your disbelief” plot devices that haunt our beloved favorite genre.


Volume 2, Fondled and Gobbled: Going Back for Seconds will be release on February 22.

goingbackforseconds_msrThe virgin whose carefully planned hymen removal doesn’t work out the way all the romance novels told her it would. A busty broad doing what she can to get over her penis anxiety—assisted by a cadre of male strippers. A not-so-bright (and not so “big”) alien who comes to claim his life mate, and the Earth girl who wants to be claimed at all costs. A cursed, mute shapeshifter who needs to pop his cherry with his unsuspecting fated mate.

If you’re looking for the perfect romance with the perfect hero and heroine, this isn’t it! This is a series of spoofs, parodies, just-for-fun lighthearted take-offs. It’s for all us longtime, hard-core romance readers who can laugh at the clichés, purple prose and “suspend your disbelief” plot devices that haunt our beloved favorite genre.

The Cabal of Hotness A group of crazy, neurotic, absolutely hilarious erotic romance authors working together to corrupt the world… one reader at a time. Please visit our blog blog for further corruption.




SPS – Sneak Peek Sunday – 02/03

Glad you’re strolling around visiting the new SPS!  I’m hoping to come back each Sunday plusone_msrwith new little snippets from upcoming books.

Make sure you visit the other authors of Sneak Peek Sunday !

Plus One, a smexy menage where a whole lot of activity is going on in an upscale sex club. From Ellora’s Cave.


A girls’ night out for a pole dance workshop at her friend’s upscale sex club takes a wild turn for normally timid Karen. She knew what to expect, but not how far she’d be willing to go.

Rob comes to Desire After Dark as a plus one. His only expectation is visual stimulation, not participation. But that soon changes when he spots the buttoned-up-to-there beauty hanging around on the sidelines.

Thrown together, Karen and Rob find the sexual heat between them undeniable. Surrounded by twosomes and moresomes, they step on an unexpected and steamy path. But when another joins in, they have a plus one of their own.


“And this is our dungeon,” Wendy told her and Jill, pride touching her voice.

Karen’s heart raced a little faster when she noticed the bowls of condoms on the end tables. Evidence that she really was in a sex club. The old Victorian mansion had been beautifully renovated, preserving much of the architecture with antique mirrors gracing the walls. The dungeon was on the second floor, along with the coed locker room. She lagged behind Jill as they followed Wendy up the last flight of stairs to the third level. Where most of the play happened.

At the landing, Wendy pointed out a window. The pool was below, glowing a lovely blue in the night. It was empty but the night was still early. The sounds of moans came from a room behind them. Curious, Karen turned and shock made her nearly stumble on her sensible black pumps.

A woman in a pink room was getting oral. Karen followed the other ladies toward the open door and couldn’t look away. Wendy carried on explaining all the rooms around them as if there were nothing peculiar about the couple having sex in plain view. But then again, she supposed it wasn’t unusual considering where she was.

When the guy chowing down on the chick’s pussy glanced up and made eye contact with Karen, she quickly looked away. But not before she saw the smile on his cheeks.
