Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!
We’re thrilled Extasy Books is re-releasing our Meghan’s Playhouse series, which has been unavailable for over four years. When we started writing Book One, Seducing Cat, we simply planned an erotic romp and set about creating a scenario that would bring two women and one man together for some hot ménage scenes. But those three characters insisted on having more meaning, and it wasn’t long before we had a series outlined. Seducing Cat earned five stars at The TBR Pile, and Book Two, A Woman for Zachary, was just released last Friday.
It’s New York! Broadway beckons, but Meg has more fun keeping an erotic triangle going with her current flame, Zach Cullen, and her drama coach, Josie Patrice.

“I’m leaving tomorrow for a couple weeks.” Zach eyed Josie as if she’d just agreed to watch out for his interests while he was gone. “I trust you, Josie. I know Meg is in good hands with you. If there’s anyone in the theater world who can develop raw talent into a star, it’s you.”
Josie flushed under his rare attempt at flattery. She knew he respected her work, but he seldom tried to voice it. At last she nodded. “I do my best. Meg has the innate talent, but she’ll have to want to work very hard to develop it. What I offer can do little if she doesn’t have the desire.”
“I know. I think she does.” His shoulders slumped a little. “But she can be flighty.” He gave her an awkward smile. “Guess that may be a factor of age—or maybe it’s simply part of being female.”
“You,” Josie said, rapping her fist against his firm chest.
He grabbed her wrist. “Sometimes I think you’re as much of a spitfire as she is. Anyhow, I have to go. I’ll leave Meg in your capable hands.” Zach narrowed his eyes. “Let me know if she strays. I’m not about to tolerate that. I’ll let her go when I’m ready.”
Yanking her hand out of his grasp, Josie retreated a step. “I will not be your spy. If she wants to fuck every man and woman in New York, that’s her business. And if she does, I’ll never tell.”
Laughter rumbled from Zach’s diaphragm. “It always amazes me how you women stick together. And I don’t believe even our Meg can do the entire population of New York City in two weeks. So long. Have fun.”
Josie fumed as Zach turned away and headed for the foyer. She let him go. She had nothing to gain by pursuing him.
She turned back toward the stage.
Damn, did he only see her as some sort of surrogate mother? And Zach’s ego aside, she highly doubted Meg had remained faithful during his many forays across the country. Most likely faithfulness had never even crossed the mind of the free-spirited Meg Keenan. Josie might not know her as well as Zach did, but in some ways, perhaps, she knew her better. After all, they were both women.
She let her gaze slide over the young woman, appraising her afresh. Even in jeans and a loose sweater, Meg exuded sex. Her ass curved so seductively. Her breasts bobbed ever so slightly as she moved across the stage. Her smile must light up lovers as well as audiences.
“Yes,” Josie murmured to herself. “You have lots of potential.” Josie’s hands warmed as she allowed herself to briefly imagine learning the curves of the young woman’s body.
Her breath caught in her windpipe. Zach was leaving Meg in her good hands. She shut her eyes and opened them slowly. Maybe she should show Zach just how faithful his young sprite could be—that knowledge might save him considerable pain down the road.
Zachary Cullen has ignored Josette Patrice’s overtures for years, but she agrees to take on his latest protégé-slash-arm-candy Meghan Keenan in her off-Broadway workshop theater. Though the girl has incredible talent, Josie would stake her reputation on that little thing being a switch-hitter, like herself, and she doesn’t want Zach to be duped. Josie sets out to seduce Meg and expose her for what she is, but all bets are off when Meg turns the tables on Josie to hook her up with Zach.

Don’t forget to stop by all the other fabulous Midweek teasers:
A powerful alpha wolf. A gifted witch. Each haunted by death. Can passion drive them to an everlasting love? Or will the enemy forge a hopeless chasm?
Braden should have died in the Graveyard, but the witch, Maeve, saved him. The call of his wolf is on him and he wants her. She can be his alpha-mate. But she has powers that can destroy him and a disrupted memory that holds the answers to his wife’s murder. Can he ever trust a woman who can kill with the power she streams from her bare hands?
Maeve has known only horror, death and destruction since her arrival in Five Bridges as a transformed alter witch. She goes to the Graveyard nightly to rescue those left for dead by the evil rampant in all five territories of her new world. She fears the power she possesses and the gaps in her memory frighten her more than anything else. But when she rescues Braden from an attack in the Graveyard and she realizes she’s drawn to the handsome wolf, the nightmare really begins.
Maeve held Braden’s fur tight. She didn’t want to let him go. The moment he’d pushed her onto the floor in his massive wolf state, desire exploded. Somehow, all that black fur and the sight of his fangs got to her.
She knew then he’d spoken the truth. Though she was a witch, she could bond with this Border Patrol officer and serve as his alpha female.
Slowly, he shifted back to his human form, a seamless process reflecting his decade in Five Bridges. She released his fur as it disappeared through her fingers.
His green eyes held hers tight. She couldn’t have looked away if she’d wanted to. He said, “I need you to understand what you’re getting into here. This will be without one shred of emotion. What happens here is strictly physical, very physical. I have no interest in you otherwise, despite your alpha-mate capacity.”
She smiled. “Got it. No strings and yes, I’m game.”
He leaped to his feet, reached down and plucked her off the floor like she was feather. He lifted her into his arms then carried her into the bedroom, slamming the door shut with his foot.
She’d been wanting this for weeks. Months, maybe.
He took her to the bed but before he let go of her, he pulled the covers back. Then he dropped her so she bounced on the mattress.
She would have been happy to get her clothes off, but he went to work like a madman. He tugged off her shoes and jeans, then flipped her onto her stomach.”
“You’ve got a beautiful ass, Maeve…”

Hi, Everyone! Caris Roane here! I’m a NY Times Bestselling Author and I write super-sexy paranormal romance books. With every book I create, my goal is to take you away ~ far, far away ~ from the difficulties and frustrations of your life.
I began my career with Kensington Publishing and wrote Regency Romance as Valerie King. In 2005, Romantic Times Magazine honored me with a career achievement award for my Regency work. To-date, I’ve published eighty-nine books. Thirty-nine of those are paranormal romances, some self-published and some with St. Martin’s Press.
Though my stories conjure up hunky PNR warriors, like vampires and wolf-shifters, the romance is everything, including a satisfying Happily Ever After. My hope is that you’ll become engrossed in the lives of my tortured heroes and my worthy women as they wage war, as they make love, and as they face the tough issues of life and relationships!
I live in the Phoenix area, in the city of Buckeye. When not writing, I’m a real homebody. I love gardening, sewing, and cooking. (Um, cleaning, not so much!) I also enjoy creating jewelry and I frequently offer my handcrafted, PNR bracelet giveaways to my newsletter and blog subscribers. You can sign up for both on my Home Page.
My motto: Live the Fang!
