Sexy Hunk with NASCAR Dreams #MSS177 #MFRWAuthor

Welcome to My Sexy Saturday Week 177, where authors tease you with seven sentences or paragraphs from their sexy stories!


This week’s theme is My Sexy Hunk.

Who are our romance heroes? We’ve written ranchers, professors, carpenters, forest rangers, photographers, horse trainers, day traders, detectives… But what could be more hunky than a carpenter/contractor who’s also a race car driver? Thought so. Bobbi Jo has known Jack since childhood days, but her family moved her away when she was a teenager. Now she’s come to him with a very special problem she just knows he can solve for her.

She’s desperately seeking a sex tutor – what if he demands total control? 

Cherry Tune-Up

Novel: 31,000 words

Four Flames: Explicit sex: M/F, F/F; Ménage: F/F/M; light bondage; voyeurism; anal sex; sex toys.

BLURB

Desperate for a crash course in lovemaking, Bobbi Jo Martin seeks out her childhood best friend. A successful contractor with NASCAR dreams, Jack Day has never forgotten her—but how will he protect his heart?  In a moment of sheer genius he decides to play the role of master…

EXCERPT

Bobbi Jo glanced up to see Jack enter, and her heartbeat quickened. His dark hair, damp from the shower, curled over a dark green T-shirt that clung to his chest like it was glued on. There was no flab. He’d tucked the shirt into an equally tight fitting pair of dark jeans—worn, but clean. She avoided dropping her gaze to his waist.

His dark eyes were also appraising her. She blinked. The tiny scar on his left cheek, the result of misguided stone she’d thrown at him in a childish tantrum, twitched a warning. His nostrils flared slightly like she’d seen stallions do when they first caught the scent of a new mare. His lips thinned.

She flinched, remembering the effect those lips once had on hers. But they weren’t teenagers anymore. So why was her skin on fire? This time, his lips would lead to much more—much, much more.

If Music be the Food of Love, Play On #MFRWAuthor #Romance #Writing

Welcome to Week Seven of the MFRW Blog Challenge! Music to Write By ~ what a perfect topic the week after the Grammys, which kept us glued to the TV all the way to the end! Fabulous testimony to the power of music.

I nearly got lost in the world of famous quotes about music to come up with this week’s meme from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, which I chose because it’s historic, it’s from a famous writer, and it’s about love. We’re romance writers, after all.

But it turns out I couldn’t choose just one quote, so here’s my pick of the best of the rest of the competition:

“Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and if it’s in the bones, it’s in the bones.” ― Keith Richards

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” ― Albert Einstein

“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” ― Maya Angelou

“When you make music or write or create, it’s really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you’re writing about at the time. ” ― Lady Gaga. And didn’t she totally rock that Superbowl halftime show?

So what music do we write to? As you know, two of us write together under our pen name, and we write to different music. In different rooms, I might add.

Mr. Kraft loves several genres of music, including contemporaries like Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and Adele, as well as both rock and roll and country from the fifties to the present. But none of those top his list of music to write by. Both of us have come to love Celtic music, even before we saw Riverdance and Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance live in the eighties. We each have Celtic roots in our ancestry (among other things), so the music speaks to us across the centuries. He’s most likely to have several Celtic CDs stacked in the player to encourage his muse. We also find these tracks helpful in establishing an erotic ambience…

Here’s one of his favorites: Down by the Salley Gardens, with Joanie Madden on the flute: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LrZa-QcNQA

Though I love all of the above, I grew up in a home filled with classical music, started piano lessons at age five, and went on to play the pipe organ and the recorder (wooden flute), then branched into folk music with guitar and hammered dulcimer. Perhaps because I studied so much of Bach’s amazing organ music, it’s the Baroque era that fills my soul and most speaks to me as I’m writing and editing. If we have past lives, one of mine must have occurred between 1600 and 1750. The music is in my bones, always familiar even if it’s a piece I think I’ve never heard in this lifetime.

I’ve sung in choirs, glee clubs and community choruses all my life, and choral music (secular as well as sacred) stirs me just as deeply. But when I’m writing, the distraction of the words is too much, so I stick to orchestral.

My all-time favorite Baroque piece is Bach’s Air on a G String (as an author of erotic romance, you bet I’m aware of the double entendre  🙂 ). Pachelbel’s famous Canon in D is a close second, but I’ve known the Bach longer. You can listen to it here:

Guest Kryssie Fortune: Hollywood’s Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves #MFRWAuthor

Some of Hollywood’s silent stars achieved an immortality that modern actors can only dream of.

Hollywood invited the wonderful Pola Negi to Hollywood. She left her native Poland and became one of the richest movie stars in the USA. She’s shown below with an almost unrecognisable Chaplin. Her most famous film was The Gypsy.

Everyone knows Charlie Chaplin and his little tramp.

Valantino’s eyes still smolder with passion. The archetypal Latin lover, he stole ladies’ hearts. Okay, that’s a stretch to make him a thief, but in his most famous film, The Sheik, he steals Lady Diana and carries her off to his camp.

Then there’s Amy Montgomery. Never heard of her? Not surprising since I made her up. She’s pivotal to my Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge trilogy, since her star shone brighter than any other movie star.

Amy was as famous for her lovers as her acting roles. Her sex appeal and avarice, plus her eye for a good deal, made her millions. Sadly, her daughter wanted to move in polite circles. Her mother’s lifestyle made that impossible.

Although the Amy’s daughter married, she raised her own daughter so prim and proper she made sucking lemons sound like a treat. Edith Montgomery holds the purse strings for her family, but had no time for girls. She left the bulk of her estate, property and over £15 million in stocks and shares to her great nephew, Army doctor, Adam Montgomery – as long as he marries within a year of her death.

When Adam is wounded he retunes to Westhorpe to find a wife. Then his first love moves back into town with her ten-year-old son and  turns his world on its head.

Tagline

After Adam Montgomery walked away and left her pregnant, dare Mandy trust him with her heart again?

Blurb

Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family–under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam—the man she loved and lost so long ago.

Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride, or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.

As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?
