Print #Giveaway – The Diary, two books in one! #MFRWAuthor @eXtasyBooks

Our autographed print giveaway for June is a two-for-one: The Diary and its sequel, Writing Skin, in a single print volume.

For a peek into The Diary, head over to this  blog post, How Could You, Luci? for an excerpt and a special link to the Diary Kate found at her sister’s apartment…

Without giving away the ending of The Diary, here’s more about Writing Skin:

What would it be like to be romanced by not one but two potential partners, simultaneously?

BLURB

Luci Parker has finally achieved the career of her dreams as an erotic author – but the only romance in her life these days is in the books she writes. Long attracted to both men and women, Luci despairs of ever finding just one person to settle down with.

Owners of a South Side Chicago bookstore, Chai and Frank Ferguson eagerly devour Luci’s books as fast as she can write them, and now they wonder if she might be the woman they’ve been looking for.

Frank is deeply in love with Chai but knows she’ll never be complete without a woman to love as well. Can he match the passion of not one but two exquisite and complicated women at the same time? Will Luci even want him? And if Chai truly falls in love with Luci, will there be room for him?

EXCERPT

“How long has it been since you’ve even been out with a man?” Kate asked.

“Not long enough.” Luci hugged herself against a shiver. “I don’t seem to have what it takes for a guy to hang around.”

“Nonsense, you probably intimidate the hell out of them. I don’t think I’ve ever known a slip of a woman like you who intimidates so easily. I know, I know.” Kate held up her palm. “You don’t try to intimidate. Most guys probably aren’t accustomed to dating women who write erotica.”

“So true,” Luci grinned. “Had a man ask me to take a taxi home once he heard about my writing. Another wanted me to crawl under the restaurant table and give him head as soon as I told him I wrote erotica.”

“Sounds like something you’d do.”

“In my college days, but even then I finished my drink before taking on an appetizer.”

Kate blinked. “I’m not sure I needed to hear that. I still have moments wondering how we could ever be sisters.”

“Half sisters.” Luci stretched and yawned. “But you may be right. I think I’ve mellowed with age.”

“That’s not all bad. You need to find a partner to mellow out with.”

“You don’t give up, do you?” Luci rose from her desk. “I really do have a deadline to meet.”

“All right, I’ll go leave you to your fantasy world. You sure you don’t want me to introduce you to our new assistant?”

Luci shook her head and hugged her sister tight. “No. And I won’t change my mind.” She stepped back and winked. “Maybe I should add a toy to my collection. It’s been too long.”

A Taste of Ginger ~ The Cougar Book #Cougar #Giveaway #MFRWAuthor

Our April Rafflecopter contest is for an autographed (by us) print copy of The Cougar Book, edited by Jolene Du Pré. This spectacular anthology of sexy escapades by cougar women was published ten years ago by Logical Lust Books, and we still have a few print copies available.

We love all the stories in this book, and you will, too. Ours, A Taste of Ginger, is an enticing evening encounter between a mid-life new divorcee and a hot young stud.

The Cougar Book

An incredible night of decadence and sensuality, or New Year’s Eve alone at the bar?

BLURB

Against her better judgment, mid-life divorcee Ginger Nelson lets a co-worker talk her into spending New Year’s Eve at a swing club to celebrate her final divorce decree. When Annette tells Ginger a handsome young man at the bar is checking her out, Ginger wants to run the other way—but Annette abandons her to pursue her own interests, and Ginger must make her choice for the night of a lifetime.

EXCERPT

“There’s a handsome young man checking you out!”

“Where?” Ginger Nelson didn’t dare look around the sweeping bar to where Annette James pointedly stared. It wasn’t Ginger’s idea to come to this swingers club. That was Annette’s doing.

Apparently it was one of Annette’s frequent weekend haunts. Ginger thought she knew her co-worker better than that, but they hadn’t really started doing things together socially until recently, after her divorce. This was why she’d agreed to this crazy idea in the first place. Today marked the final divorce decree. She was a free woman again—at fifty-five.

“Don’t be so uptight,” Annette cautioned. “He’s a hunk, and he’s really looking you over.”

“He’s probably looking at you,” she groused, staring into her wineglass.

Annette giggled. “No way. He doesn’t even know I’m here. You could at least peek at him. That’s why we’re here, to look at the guys.”

“That may be why you’re here.” Ginger groaned. “I know. I know you didn’t force me to come with you tonight. But—but this is different than I expected. The music is too loud. People are making out right by the bar. They’re all so young. And I feel so old.” She tried not to wail.

“Nonsense! You’re overreacting. There are plenty of people here our age. But don’t dismiss the younger guys so quickly.” Annette squeezed her friend’s elbow. “I bet the guy undressing you at the end of the bar doesn’t have a single gray hair on his body.”

Frowning, Ginger cocked her head sideways enough to peer out the corner of her eye and catch a glimpse of the far end of the curved bar. “I don’t see anyone. I only see a guy with a couple girls draped over him.”

“Exactly. And his eyes are on you. Think of the girls as accessories. They’re no competition. Not with you.”

We also highly recommend an f/f story by Emerald, To Make it That Way.

EXCERPT

When people tell me I seem different now, my stomach clenches for a moment. At those times, there are two things I know: first, that they’re right; second, that even though I am aware of precisely why, I could never explain exactly what happened to make it that way. It was, and still is, an enigma in my life.

I was twenty-one when I met her. Three of my friends and I were standing outside one of the bars we went to all the time when she pulled up in a black Toyota and stopped at the curb right beside us. I glanced over, and her eyes fastened on mine with an expression I couldn’t begin to decipher. It was an expression I would come to know well. It meant that she was seeing me, really seeing me, and she saw something I needed that she knew she could give me.

“You,” she said to me. Her voice was sweet but had an edge of command that made me jump even as she smiled. I moved forward to her open passenger side window and looked down at her.

She nodded at the bar. “You going in there to get laid, sweetheart?” I just stared at her, at a loss for what to say. Behind me, I could hear my tipsy friends shuffling and murmuring.

Her smile grew wider. “Why don’t you come with me instead?” She kept her eyes trained on mine, and I grew no less stupefied as the seconds ticked by. I thought I hadn’t understood her correctly, and I didn’t give the idea that she was serious more than a second’s—an elated second’s—thought. She lowered her voice and made her intentions perfectly clear.

Should she read more? #sundaysnippet #MFRWauthor #Giveaway #sunday8 #wewriwa

This month we’re giving away one autographed print copy of The Diary. The giveaway lasts all month – contest details after our Sunday Snippet.

Be sure to visit Weekend Writing Warriors to check out the rest of today’s exciting excerpts!

The Diary is actually two books in one – The Diary, and its sequel, Writing Skin. Today’s excerpt follows last week’s, after Kate sneaked a peek into her sister’s diary when she stopped by to water her plants…

EXCERPT

Kate slumped down at her sister’s desk.  Should she read more?  She’d simply dipped into the diary like so many folks casually stabbed at a verse in the Bible.  Kate scowled and rested her chin on her knuckles.  An alarm bell began ringing in the corner of her brain.

Professor?  What professor?  Luci was a college junior, an English major.  Would she ever graduate?  She worked nearly full-time at a trendy Near-North boutique and took college classes around her work schedule. 

But a professor screwing a student—wasn’t that against some rule?  Weren’t there ethics governing faculty-student relations?  At least such behavior must be frowned upon.  How had Luci gotten herself mixed up with a professor?  Who was he?  And what was he trying to get from her sister—other than her body?

A rakish professor, a flaming redhead, her petite younger sister, and the redhead’s bi Italian girlfriend in a blistering transcontinental tale of revenge gone awry.

BLURB

Lust, revenge, dark sexual escapades and the mysterious disappearance of her younger half sister, Luci, will take art curator Kate Noble on a whirlwind transcontinental journey. The diary Luci’s left behind paints vivid images of shameless erotic exploits with a rake named only as G.C.  

Can Kate learn enough under the delightful hands of her bisexual best friend, Gina, to ensnare the sensual and elusive Professor Grayson Cosgrove into a marriage proposal of her making? Can she find Luci before it’s too late? If only she could read between the lines.

The Diary ~ never have the secrets of another been so electrifying!
