Hump Day Hook ~ Vegas Gambler #HDH #menage

Welcome to Hump Day Hook! Click HERE if you’re looking for the Spring is in the Air BlogHop.

Sometimes I think Vegas Gambler (Book Four) is my favorite in our Meghan’s Playhouse series. Maybe it’s because we’ve been staying in Las Vegas these last few weeks, or maybe it’s because I love how the theme of gaming and gambling underlies the entire plot, including the relationships as they shift and change. Hope you like it!

Just when Meg thinks she’ll heat up Tia and Tony’s relationship, Tia turns the tables to hook Meg up with Tony—but the real winner is the Vegas Gambler, Jack Hawthorne.

Romance Junkies 4.5 blue ribbons
an extremely sensual erotic romance.  


Fresh with success from a recent stint in a musical on the Las Vegas Strip, Meghan Keenan takes some time off to play with her current flame, Jack Hawthorne, professional poker player. She’s delighted to add her petite masseuse Tia Minh to the mix and even more thrilled when she learns Tia’s relationship with her boyfriend Tony Sanders is on the skids. It’s the perfect challenge! Tia has different ideas – she thinks Tony would be perfect for Meg, and she conspires to throw them together any way she can. Ever the gambler, Jack catches onto her game quickly and keeps the ruse going behind Meg’s back. Who knew his heart was up for grabs?


“Jesus,” Jack grumbled, “she’s tiny.”

“Don’t worry,” Meg chuckled. “You’ll fit. She’s handled my strap-on easily enough. Let me help you.”

Tia blinked her eyes open to see the back of Meg’s head as she guided Jack’s shaft to her throbbing mound. Tia couldn’t contain a moan when the head of Jack’s cock penetrated her opening.

Meg turned to beam a smile at her. “He’s as good with his cock as he is with his tongue. Trust me.”

“You okay?” Jack asked, holding steady as he knelt between her thighs.

She nodded. “Don’t hold back on my account.” She rotated her pelvis to emphasize her point.

“Damn,” Jack said, looking down at their joining. “Here goes.”

Tia wanted to cry. She doubted any man had ever been so careful with her. But did he have any idea that by being so slow he was torturing her? She swallowed hard as he inched inward until he was buried in her depths. She smiled at his surprise. Was it her capacity to take all of him? Or maybe it was the heat of her inner core.

Becoming quite alert, Tia slid a hand between Meg’s thighs, parting them as she went. “Thanks for sharing him with me.”

Lucky in Love:

What does that mean to you? Do you think it happens in real life? What do you look for in a romance plot to feel satisfied that the characters are lucky in love when they finally arrive at their happy ending?

I do believe in being lucky in love in real life – I think it has happened to me. Of course, it’s never all just luck – I’d like a little credit for choosing well when we first got started! But experience in my first marriage (yes, hubs and I were both married and divorced before we met) taught me that just because two persons are compatible at one point in time doesn’t necessarily mean they will continue to grow in directions that bring them together.

So that’s where the luck comes in, at least a little. There’s work involved, too. Hubs and I have been married over thirty years. I never dreamed when our relationship began that we’d develop a career of co-writing erotic stories and seeing them published :). Where did that come from? Was it luck? Was it staying open to each other, finding new and interesting things to do together, keeping focused on learning and growing, keeping our sex life vibrant and active?

Especially that last one, actually! Anyone over fifty (yes, that’s us, and most of the rest of the baby boomer generation, by now!) knows it’s easy for sexual desire, arousal and activity to slow down in mid-life, what with changing hormones and (in our case) a house full of teenagers. You have to work at it to make sure the inertia doesn’t stop your sex life altogether. One of the options we chose was watching soft porn videos (typically created by women, for women) as part of our foreplay. Not only did that work, very nicely – it prompted us to start thinking about what kinds of plots and situations we’d like to see, what sorts of scenes turned us on the most.

It wasn’t long before we started writing them down – for ourselves, in the beginning, but then we started thinking: if we like these plots and scenes, perhaps we’re not the only ones. We started submitting them, and are thrilled (and yes, probably lucky) to now have twenty-nine erotic romance novels and novellas published, and two more under contract for release later this spring.

So yes, this St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I’m feeling very lucky in love, and happy to be sharing the wealth!

Here’s a peek at one of our baby boomer heroines who also turned out to be very lucky. We created a fictional Center for Sexuality and Sex Practices, based very loosely on some of the resources we turned to in our forties. We’ve turned several characters loose in the setting to see what they’d come up with. Here’s the Blurb and an Excerpt for Ripening Passion:


Ripening PassionClaire Johnson’s dedication to sex—the cornerstone of her career—led her to found the Center for Sexuality and Sex Practices. Now in her fifties, she knows the Center must keep pace with the rapidly growing Baby Boomer market, so she agrees to go back on camera for a series on sex and aging. But work with her nemesis?

Former English Professor Max Wilson has championed the cause of the Center ever since his deceased wife sought the Center’s help to rekindle the nearly extinguished sexual flames of their relationship. He loves working on camera and welcomes the challenge to perform with the svelte but feisty temptress.

Sparks fly immediately on and off camera. Can either Claire or Max transform those sparks into a fire of sexual desire for their viewers? And if they succeed, what will happen when the movie’s over?


“Don’t stare, but take a peek at the young couple at about two-o’clock braced against the tree making out. They do seem to enjoy kissing.”

Max looked, then nibbled Claire’s ear. “Who’s staring? You do have radar for lovers.”

“Cripes, she’s riding his knee. Oh my, a girl after my own heart. Max, she’s hanging onto his shoulder for dear life, but she’s not surrendering her perch on his thigh for anything.

“He’s looking around. Oops, I think he caught me watching. Ah.” Claire sighed. “She stopped, now they’re kissing wildly again.” Claire squeezed his fingers on her breast. “That girl had a damn good ride. Oh, to be young lovers again.”

“Being old lovers isn’t bad.” Max dipped his fingers under the fabric covering her breast.

“If that couple were to look across the way at us, they’d never guess I’m sitting here with my man caressing my nipple. And,” she turned and kissed his cheek, “that I’m wet as hell.”

“You could probably hump my knee and they wouldn’t even notice because they don’t expect it. That’s one advantage with age. People don’t expect us to be horny, or do outrageous things.”

“So true. And there’s something quite gratifying about defying their limited expectations. Perhaps we should go over and share our wisdom with the youngsters.”

Max shook his head. “I doubt they’d listen.

Hump Day Hook ~ April Swings #HDH

What’s Meg up to now? In Megan’s Playhouse Book Three: April Swings, she’s about to orchestrate some spicy four-way sex. Who knows where that might lead!

April Swings

Booked as cruise ship entertainers, Meg and her latest squeeze Josh Hendricks spice up the Caribbean action with April and Derek Day.


April Day deeply loves her husband Derek, but something’s missing. To spice things up she books them on a Caribbean cruise for their seventh anniversary. She’s not sure what she’s looking for, but she knows she’s found it as soon as she spots the delectable sprite of an actress who stars in the ship’s daily shows.

Meghan Keenan’s having a blast with her latest squeeze, Josh Hendricks, who writes and directs the shipboard main shows. Should she turn down April’s request to heat up her marriage? And if she accepts, where will Josh fit in?

Derek is stunned by his wife’s brash pursuit of the hot young actress. Must he match her boldness to keep her from leaving him?



“I don’t usually get involved with married couples—unless I got them together in the first place.” Meg watched April’s smile broaden as she took in the implications of the second half of her statement.

“I knew I was right about you,” April said. “Derek thought I was crazy.”

“I like women and guys, if that’s what you mean. But as I said, I don’t usually get involved with married couples. So what are you looking for, a little diversion?”

April winced. “More than that. Not a long term relationship—I have that with Derek.” Her fingers curled around a napkin, showing the first sign of tension. “We’ve lost the sexual spark that used to be so important to both of us.”

“Ah. That explains a lot.” Meg glanced toward the exit. “So you’re much more interested in rediscovering this spark than your husband is?”

April shrugged. “I don’t think he knows how to go about finding it. He refuses everything I come up with.”

“But you convinced him to come on this cruise.”

April nodded. “It wasn’t an easy sell. I guess he finally bought the idea that it would be easier to have an adventure on board a ship than in Chicago. Less dangerous in the long run.”

“Possibly. So why did you pick me out of all the women who are looking for action, much like you? This is my third cruise. You and your husband aren’t as unusual as you might think.”

“You’ve helped others on cruises?”

“I didn’t say that.” Meg arched an eyebrow. “I’ve had my hands rather full with Josh. But I must admit you’re the first person to approach me so directly. You’re not into a lot of games. I like that.”

“And you do enjoy sex.”

“Of course I do.”

“Are you planning on marrying Josh?”

“Heavens no!” Meg frowned and leaned away from her. “Neither one of us has time for marriage. We don’t even live together, other than when we’re working cruises. This works for us. We’re both heavily involved in the New York theater world. Someday I imagine we’ll each get around to marrying, but that doesn’t mean we’d want to marry each other. We’re comfortable with what we have.”

“So Josh won’t be a problem if you choose to get involved with me and Derek?”

Meg shook her head and grinned. “He won’t be a problem. He might want to watch or even join us. Josh is always looking for material for the next play. He’s never turned down any other woman I’ve brought to him.”
