“You must be very special…” #MWTease #MFRWAuthor #Menage

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 pumped for the upcoming release of our next erotic romance ménage, coming in two weeks from Extasy Books. You can read an excerpt from Seducing Cat and enter to win a free download HERE.

Meanwhile, we thought we’d give you a little taste of some other FFM ménage stories from our backlist. The Reunion won the 2014 Bisexual Writers Association award for best erotic fiction and was a Top Pick at both  The Romance Reviews and Night Owl Reviews.

We’re offering an autographed paperback copy of The Reunion at an on-line auction to support LGBT Chechens at risk. The Auction runs now through May 13 at this LINK:


The Reunion

BLURB

Dark and brooding, Adam Granger was always the bad boy out of reach—but now he’s in Sarah Atkinson’s bed, the morning after their twentieth high school reunion. When Adam beats a retreat to his Pacific Palisades estate, former good girl Sarah throws caution to the wind and pursues him.

Petite copper-skinned Maria Ramirez greets Sarah at Adam’s front door. The former exotic dancer doesn’t challenge Sarah’s assumption she’s the maid—how long will it take the dark-haired beauty to figure out Maria is Adam’s live-in lover? Better yet, how long before Maria can entice her into their bed?

Determined not to rock his hard-won lifestyle, Adam resolves to push Sarah past her sexual limits so she’ll leave. When she stays, he watches helplessly as the two women fall in love with each other. Will they shut him out? And, if they let him in, what must he sacrifice?

EXCERPT

“You’re the first woman Adam has been with since he and I got together,” Maria said.

“And you’re not jealous?” Sarah squeaked.

Maria shrugged her shoulders. “Why should I be? I’ve not been with another man since I started up with Adam.” Maria knelt on the floor. Sarah didn’t flinch away when Maria rested a hand on her bare knee. “But I do take other women to my bed from time to time. And occasionally Adam joins us.”

The air in Sarah’s lungs whooshed out. “Oh.” She covered her mouth. “Oh.”

“But you must be something very special,” Maria said, squeezing Sarah’s knee and removing her hand.

“Why do you say that?” Sarah managed to whisper.

“Because Adam is letting you stay here in the house.”

There was a Man in her Bed… #MWTease #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!

Did you like all those teasers from our Romantic Suspense, The Painter is a Lady? We sure hope so—but now it’s time to switch gears! Our next release, coming in May, is a re-release of an M/F/F erotic ménage romance series that’s been unavailable for a couple years.

To celebrate that, we thought we’d dip back into another of our M/F/F ménages, The Reunion. This 2013 release won the 2014 award for Best Bisexual Erotic novel from the Bi Writers Association and was a Top Pick at both The Romance Reviews and Night Owl Reviews.

EXCERPT

Here are the opening sentences:

Cranking one eye open, Sarah Atkinson confirmed the obvious. There was a man in her bed. She hadn’t seen one of them naked in years.

She carefully memorized his rippling muscles rising and falling gently in sleep. The dark-haired hunk wasn’t just any man. He was Adam Granger!

Absently, Sarah threaded fingers through her moist pussy curls.

Stay Sexy ~ #Poly Goes Mainstream

Here’s last Wednesday’s headline from the New York Post:

“3 no longer a crowd as open relationships see a boom”

Attention grabbing? For sure. Sensationalist? I don’t think so. The article, in fact, is a sensitively done piece on what a range of poly relationships look like from the inside. It accesses some current research, and quotes from Sexpert Tristan Taormino, whose book on the subject, Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships, is selling more copies now than when it was first released in 2008.

Are poly relationships truly on the increase, or are they simply feeling more free to become public? It’s hard to know, but it’s certainly clear we’re hearing more about them.

There were also some fascinating discussions last weekend at Catalyst.Con, which I was unable to attend but followed on its twitter stream. For a peek into what sexperts and professionals are thinking about swinging and poly relationships, follow the hashtag #cconswing and scroll back about a week. A few bon mots:

Janine @OpenJanine We are part of one community: ethical non-monogamists. —@swingsetlife #cconswing #ccon #ssccon

Technogeisha @Technogeisha Not being out give it a “naughty” feeling. Are some swingers worried they will lose that if its out and normal? #cconswing #ssccon

Fred Brown @luhnquil There is no fully out. Every time you meet a new person. It’s just over and over and over again. @ShiraBKatz #cconswing

Dr. Ebony Utley @u_experience some have the privilege to come out; many don’t. race and sexual orientation make publicizing sexual behaviors tricky #cconswing

The other take-away for us, as authors of erotic fiction featuring poly relationships, is that there is a wide variety of choices and arrangements, and there’s no consensus on what the categories are or ought to be. The New York Post offers the following five varieties – but we’ve met so many more, and there are clearly nuances and differences within each, as well.

“Here’s a key to some of the most popular open-relationship styles. And remember, all are consensual — cheating is not kosher!

Open relationship: Umbrella term for any consensual non-monogamous relationship

Polygamy: Think “Big Love.” One spouse, many wives. Illegal.

Monogamish: Don’t-ask-don’t-tell sanctioned cheating in a monogamous relationship

Polyamory: Having a loving relationship — emotional and physical — with multiple people

Swinging: Hook-ups with no-strings attached” [New York Post October 2, 2013]

Of course we hope you’ll take a peek at our Swinging Games Series if you’re curious about some of the swing lifestyle options – we think it offers a pretty realistic snapshot of what a pair of empty-nest baby boomers can experience, and should help feed your fantasies. If you’re looking for more specific guidance, we recommend the book by Tristan Taormino we mentioned at the top of this post, which we will be reviewing in these pages soon.

In the meantime – have fun, and Stay Sexy!
