Enjoy our next snipped from The Heist – I think maybe he remembers!

EXCERPT

Ted Springs scanned the small crowd waiting to greet passengers over the heads of others disembarking in front of him. He spotted Kara immediately—she stood at the edge of the crowd and gave a tentative wave when she recognized him.

He nodded in return, trying to be patient with the older ladies ahead of him and a family with two young children.

Wearing a simple pink dress that buttoned down the front and fell nearly to the knees, Kara Daniels looked both professional and sexy. Tossing dark hair over her shoulder, she looked much more collected than when he’d last seen her, but then this was not a surprise meeting.

His chest tightened as he neared her. Her breasts were as substantial as he’d remembered. He could still feel them crushing into his chest outside Alice’s office. That had been a shock—a shock he definitely wanted to re-experience.

Kara extended her hand in greeting—so much for a repeat hug.

A Heist? A Murder?
It’s villain’s choice.

A special-order art theft? Tedious, but seamless – until small town museum director Kara Daniels calls in the experts. Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?

#EggcerptExchange – Whispers in the Dark @Kris_Bock #Romance + #Suspense #MFRWAuthor

I couldn’t resist purchasing this book after I read the blurb and excerpt below.  I could hardly put it down, a thriller embedded in the richly nuanced healing journey of its courageous heroine. Five stars from me!

Whispers in the Dark is romantic suspense with archaeology and intrigue among ancient Southwest ruins. Reviewers give it a 4.2 star average: “A great read with a strong plot line & likeable characters!”

 

Young archeologist Kylie Hafford heads to the remote Puebloan ruins of Lost Valley, Colorado, to excavate. Her first exploration of the crumbling ruins ends in a confrontation with a gorgeous, angry man who looks like a warrior from the Pueblo’s ancient past. If only Danesh weren’t so aggravating… and fascinating. Then she literally stumbles across Sean, a charming, playful tourist. His attentions feel safer, until she glimpses secrets he’d rather keep hidden.

The summer heats up as two sexy men pursue her. She finds mysteries – and surprising friendships – among the other campground residents. Could the wide-eyed woman and her silent children be in the kind of danger all too familiar to Kylie?

Mysterious lights, murmuring voices, and equipment gone missing plague her dig. A midnight encounter sends Kylie plummeting into a deep canyon. She’ll need all her strength and wits to survive. Everything becomes clear – if she wants to save the man she’s come to love and see the villains brought to justice, she must face her demons and fight.

Whispers in the Dark is action-packed romantic suspense set in the Four Corners region of the Southwest. This title stands alone and is not part of a series.

Excerpt:

I hit something, bounced, scraped, and finally landed with a thud that rattled my whole body.

I lay in the dark, blinded, my head ringing, pain washing over me in great waves. My lungs screamed for air, but it seemed like I’d forgotten how to breathe.

Finally I dragged in a breath. I closed my eyes and focused on breathing, waiting for the world to settle into place.

Rain misted my face, so I must be lying on my back. My head felt heavier than my feet. I shifted and realized I was lying on a slope with my head pointing down.

I tried to concentrate on those little details. I couldn’t handle anything more. Panic fluttered around me, but I refused to think about anything but the present moment. I flexed my fingers. When that worked, I moved my hands over my body, up to my face. My head throbbed, but when I felt around my skull, I didn’t find any serious damage.

I had to move. The thought battered at the back of my mind, a panicky whisper that I tried to ignore. I had to run. Hide. He was after me. I had to get away.

I clenched my teeth hard, as if I could bite back the pain and fear. Memories crowded in, like panicked ghosts wailing at the edges of my mind. Guns, strange men. Dangerous, threatening men. Danesh trying to protect me, the gun going off. My own helpless, panicked flight. Helpless. Worthless. Unable to fight, unable even to scream.

I tried to focus on this one moment, the physical sensations of my aching body as I lay on the hard, damp ground. The cold against my bare calves, the lump of rock pressing into my shoulder. That focus helped keep me grounded in the present. Never mind that this present wasn’t a place I wanted to be. I had to deal with reality. But I didn’t have to also deal with nightmares. Not now.

The little whimpers in my throat faded to short gasping breaths. I held on to this moment, this single slice of reality. Now to move forward. I didn’t have to like it, but I had to do it. One step at a time.

She’d drawn the lucky card… #MWTease #FREE #MFRWAuthor

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!

Do you fantasize about the swing lifestyle? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to participate in a threesome or more-some? How about a little voyeurism?

Today’s erotic teaser comes from Book Two in our Swinging Games series.

EXCERPT

Boneless, Jen basked in the attention her three lovers were showering on her. It seemed like hours, but she knew Linda had been chewing on the corner of her mouth for only moments. Jen whimpered as Linda’s tongue toyed, parting her lips, and Tom and Brett tended her boobs seemingly with extreme care not to touch a nipple with tongue or finger.

They’d all dispensed with their clothing quickly after settling into the room. But everything had been in slow motion ever since. She’d drawn the lucky card and was the first to receive total attention from her partners. Everyone understood the rules of this game. This was foreplay. There would be no genital penetration by fingers or cocks. A tongue might stray, but only in passing. She could have as many orgasms as developed. No one would discourage those natural responses, definitely not her.

Linda’s tongue sank further into Jen’s mouth and Jen swallowed, unable to stifle a moan. That must’ve been the cue to the guys, for each of them grazed a nipple and then drew one into their mouth. And she was nearly gone. Her unattended hips flexed of their own accord and then they bucked against the air as her first orgasm swept across her body. There would be more. She dug her fingernails into Linda’s shoulders, wanting to savor the experience.

MORE ABOUT THE SERIES

In our fifteen-book Swinging Games series, you can experience the thrill of anticipation, the anxious moments of that first lifestyle encounter, the heat of three, four and more-way erotic adventures, house parties, swing clubs, lifestyle resorts and more, through the eyes of our hero and heroine, Brett and Jennifer Andrews. Here’s how they got their start:

What’s a girl to do? Happily married with all her children grown, Jennifer Andrews has finally figured out she’s bisexual – but just turning on to hot f/f fiction and videos isn’t enough. She wants the real thing, and she wants to share it with Brett. Addition sounds so much better than subtraction. Will the swing lifestyle be the answer they’re seeking? They’re determined to find out.

Book One, Anticipation, is all about how much just the fantasies of what might happen send their sex life spiraling to giddy heights.

Book Two, Hook-Ups, takes the reader on an up close and personal tour of Brett and Jen’s first swinging date with another couple. It’s available FREE at the Extasy Books website.

It’s no surprise that once they dip their toes into the swing lifestyle, they dive right in – for a total of fifteen adventures. We hope readers will be enticed to dive right in and revel in the fantasies Brett and Jen inspire.
