FIVE STARS

I loved Kitty and Jared.  Both are strong willed characters who will not run from their attraction. Both expect a short but passionate affair, but their plans are upset when their emotions become involved.  Watching them both fight their feelings made their capitulation so much sweeter.… THE BEST MAN is excellent. Sheila, Shelfari and Amazon

BLURB

Passionate, hard working and every inch a business woman,Chicago realtor Kitty Paige likes her sex raw and edgy, and sees no reason to limit herself to just one man. Never married and not quite forty, the striking blonde has successfully raised her daughter, Susan, and is already pushing her new-found freedom to the limits.

Wealthy commodities middle-man and race horse owner Jared Jacobs is father of the best man at Susan’s wedding. He is smitten by the vision in yellow who exudes sex as she escorts her daughter down the aisle. Also single, the handsome mustached California ranch owner with mischievous eyes views his sex life as a series of splendid love affairs, and sets out to make Kitty next on the list.

Together and apart, their chemistry is explosive, and their sparkling repartee and steamy sex catch both partners by surprise. Jared is first to recognize he’s fallen in love. When Kitty panics, can Jared finesse his every move and reel her in?

It’s hard to describe the excitement at our house this week as my husband and I finally realize a dream we’ve held for a couple years: Launching our own indie imprint and publishing our work independently!

It’s been a long road with a lot of hard work and some major distractions along the way. Last summer, after dinking with ideas and vague plans for a year, we held an official board meeting (yup, just the two of us) and inked out a plan, working backwards from a projected February, 2013 initial release date. So we were only off by four months!

The learning curve (so far :)) wasn’t as steep as I envisioned. We got a lot of help from some yahoo groups, a LinkedIn discussion group, some fellow authors at Midnight Seductions, and Guy Kawasaki’s wonderful book, APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur-How to Publish a Book. I can’t tell you how many times I read and re-read that book. It was invaluable for its clear detailed instructions and pros-and-cons of various choices. Plus I really appreciated the material in the front of the book encouraging the would-be author to examine why write - some great cheerleading, at just the right moment.

So here we are: our fabulous bad-girl heroine, Kitty Paige, has launched her indie-published career by opening our book with what looks like one of the worst mistakes of her life, and we are excited to find out how readers will cathect to this amazing pair of characters who’ve held us in thrall for longer than we planned.

Here’s an excerpt to tantalize you – watch this space for information about more excerpts, contests and appearances around the web in June!

EXCERPT

“Oh, God. Have mercy.”

“Not this time, babe.” Jared easily lifted Kitty’s butt and slid one end of the scarf under it. Quickly, he had her loins encased in silk and handed the ends of the scarf to her care. “I won’t be needing these for awhile. You may find a use for them.”

Her fingers curled around the scarf and he settled between her legs. He laved the silk around the edges of her pussy and then looked up with a grin. “Isn’t it amazing how silk feels when it gets wet—your juices and my tongue.”

She tugged on the silk scarf, increasing the pressure against her loins, and nodded jerkily. “Make me come, Jared.”

“Like this?” He tongued the silk covering her pussy and pushed a little inside her folds.

“Oh, yeah. That’ll do it. A little more.”

He lifted his head and shook it when he saw her distressed glower. “Not yet,” he whispered, retrieving the scarf. “Not nearly yet. You won’t come until I’m ready for you to come.”

Meg’s Folly

Meghan’s Playhouse, Book Five

Our last four Hump Day Hooks have focused on the first four books in our Meghan’s Playhouse series. In case you forgot, Meg Keenan is a sprite of a woman who takes on Aphrodite’s role of bringing other couples together, up close and personal. As we got to know her through the series, we began to wonder if she’d ever have a happy ending of her own—and if so, just what it might look like!

We’re not giving away any secrets today, but here’s the blurb and an excerpt, with a little hint of an upcoming four-way ménage…

BLURB

When Meghan Keenan’s old flame Josh Hendricks unexpectedly shows up at the Summer Shakespeare Festival where she has a leading role, Meg has a brilliant inspiration: he’ll be perfect for Camila, the hot Latina who currently shares Meg’s bed. If Meg’s scheme works, she can continue to enjoy sexy escapades with both of them.

Josh has a different idea. He’s come to the Festival with one goal in mind: to marry Meg. Will Camila buy into the plan and help him spark Meg’s jealousy? Can Josh escape this tempting triangle unscathed? And if he does, can he claim his would-be bride before she flees in panic?

EXCERPT

My apologies for a longer-than-usual excerpt—since Meg’s bisexual, this seemed like an appropriate excerpt, given the historic hearings taking place in the U.S. Supreme Court this week.

Yawning, Meg glanced at the living room clock. It was well past midnight, hardly a late night for theater folks, but she knew Josh must still be on Eastern Time. They’d dissected his play about every which way possible. With his long legs crossed at the ankles, he slouched in the easy chair sitting across from the couch where she and Camila sat.

“What are you working on now?” Camila asked. “Or are you one of those superstitious writers who won’t talk about a work in progress?”

Meg knew Josh wouldn’t hesitate to talk about current work. Josh reveled in carrying on about writing—his own or others. Meg squeezed Camila’s fingers. She was pleased with how the girl responded to Josh’s presence. For his part, Josh engaged easily with both of them. She’d noticed his arousal pressing against his trousers several times. It felt as if she and Josh hadn’t been separated for so many months.

Josh smiled and shrugged. “I often bounce ideas off of people who appreciate the ins and outs of telling stories. I’m sort of between things right now. Of course, as you know, a writer has lots of plots floating at the same time. I’m considering a play that’s been percolating the last several months about the struggles bisexuals confront, not quite fitting in any world except their own.”

“That has a familiar personal ring,” Camila admitted. “Straights and gays think I’m either just playing around or can’t decide.”

Meg’s response was quick. “I haven’t felt particularly at sea because of my sexual orientation.”

Josh’s grin split his face. “Why would you? You’ve created your own network of like minded people.” Josh winked at Camila. “You must know that our Meg’s favorite role is that of matchmaker.”

“I’ve noticed.” Camila nibbled on Meg’s right ear. “She’s already failed with me.”

“Really?”

Meg glowered at Josh.

“Philip.”

“That rather uneasy fellow I met at the theater?”

Camila arched an eyebrow at Meg. “I didn’t see Philip tonight.”

“He was there.” Meg brushed a hand along Camila’s thigh. She’d been inching her short skirt higher for the past twenty minutes. From Josh’s look he must have a superior view of Camila’s satin v-string and the outlines of the treasure it barely concealed. “I told him we’ll be rather busy the next few days. He’ll be gone most of the week. I’ll take care of Philip. He’s been a good friend this summer.” Meg stuck her tongue out at Camila. “Who knows, if Josh sticks around long enough we may want a fourth.”

Camila’s eyes rounded as she shuddered. “Double the fun.”

“Or trouble,” Josh countered.

Tangled & Bound By Emily Ryan-Davis

A Taken in Bondage Erotic Romance

Friendly, adventurous, sexually submissive…and a complete stranger. She’s exactly the anonymous, no-consequences diversion fetish-club owner Sam needs to kick off a few days in Las Vegas. He doesn’t hesitate to take her up against the door of the in-flight bathroom.

Powerful, dominant Sam could have walked straight out of one of Melanie’s dog-eared BDSM novels. When he strikes up a conversation on a late-evening flight, fictional fantasies become knee-weakening, panty-soaking, feminine-core-clenching reality. And oh-em-gee, does she want another taste of that!

When Sam informs her that his plans don’t include a long-term D/s relationship with an impulsive young blonde for whom submission is more than likely a passing whim, Melanie throws herself into convincing him she’s exactly the submissive lover he wants, needs and can’t live without.

Excerpt:

Chapter One

August

Halfway into her non-stop flight from New York to Las Vegas, Melanie Burke started to squirm.  Her restlessness had nothing to do with her tiny middle-of-the-row seat and everything to do with the muscular, denim-clad thigh touching her bare leg.

The thigh belonged to a man she’d noticed hours earlier while waiting to board. In a sea of people wearing jeans and t-shirts, he’d stood out, and not because of his scuffed cowboy boots and oversized belt buckle. Well, not only because of those. While the whole Texas horse wrangler look was out of place in LaGuardia, he certainly wasn’t the only man doing the Western thing. He was the only one doing it well, though.

The nice ass and hand-tooled boots weren’t what had her snapping a surreptitious pic and forwarding it to her BFF, Brooke, who was a self-proclaimed expert in all things BDSM. Something else was.

Something about him declared, “I’m in charge”. Ever since she’d gotten wet while reading a BDSM-themed novel earlier in the year, Melanie had become a sneaky people-watcher, looking for the whole “in charge” vibe Dominant men apparently put off. When she’d despaired ever finding her Dom, Brooke had advised her to chill and wait. According to Brooke, Melanie would just know. She was on the verge of giving up and going back to her normal sex routine of grad students and bar crawlers, but then she saw him.

During boarding call, she’d covertly watched the way he stood apart from the crowd even while standing in the middle of it. Her attraction to him was inexplicable. The cowboy look really wasn’t to her taste. She went for guys with more of a GQ look. He didn’t exude sophisticated power like the heroes of her dog-eared novels, either, but he did take her breath away. Some part of her she was just discovering wanted to kneel at his feet and gaze up into his eyes from below.

When she reached her assigned seat on the plane, she was both startled and thrilled by the coincidence that booked him in the seat next to hers. Now, as she turned the page of her book, a “mommy porn” title on every national bestseller list, she snuck a peek at her in-flight neighbor’s face.

Pale, grass-green eyes met hers. Caught in the act of looking, startled by the fact she’d caught him in the act, too, she quickly shifted her focus back to the book spread across her fold-down tray.

“Good book?” Her neighbor’s voice wrapped around her, warm in the too-cold cabin. She pressed her thighs together as her simmering arousal cranked up a notch.

“Most of the world seems to like it.” She glanced up to find him still watching her. This time she was prepared for the intensity of his examination and managed to maintain eye contact. She even did a little looking of her own, mostly in the form of a closer inspection of his dark-blond evening stubble and full lips. Those lips quirked while she studied them. They would be fantastic between her legs.

As if he had access to her little fantasy, his smile widened.

“I’m not interested in most of the world. Do you like it?” He reached over, closed the book, and turned it so the front cover showed. “Who would’ve thought a simple neck tie would become so iconic?”

“It’s a very striking cover,” Melanie agreed. But totally disinteresting to her now. As far as visuals went, he had all her attention. His shoulders dominated the narrow seat. She seriously wanted to climb astride his lap and put her hands on him. Maybe rub up against that big belt buckle. And she wanted to beg him to keep talking. The Midwest meets New York accent was weirdly fascinating.

“The question still remains whether you’re enjoying the read.”

“It’s crazy popular–“

“Yes or no?” He interrupted.

Heat flashed through her. Blinking rapidly at her body’s response to his demanding inquiry, she managed to say, “I’m not sure.”

“There’s a simple way to tell.” He leaned close and spoke directly into her ear. “If you’re wet right now, you’re enjoying the book. “

The powerful confidence of his voice stirred something low in her abdomen. She was wet before his lips brushed her ear. Now she felt soaked.

“Answer me, honey.” He touched her chin and tilted her head at a slight angle. Callused fingertips settled on a spot just below her jaw. “Your heart’s racing, but I don’t think you’re scared. I think that book has you so hot, you’re dying to slip your hand into your panties.”
