Wednesdays Words – Mating Rights by Jaide Fox

I liked this book. It was a little different but that made it interesting. The hero is not your average shifter but he is no less Alpha. Actually his flaws make him more appealing. It took a minute to get into the heroine but once you got to know her character, what she did and why become very clear. No spoilers. This was a good length read at 30k for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time but wants to enjoy a good book. The blurb and link are below.

Blurb ~

By pack law, all unmated females must attend the moonlight festival for mating rights.

Mali harbors a secret kept hidden her entire life. She’s lived in hiding, never knowing the companionship of the wolf pack. Never dreaming of having a family of her own. If she’s discovered, there’s a chance she may not survive pack punishment for her deception.

The feverish heat hits her hard when Jaxon barges into her life and takes her unwillingly to the festival. He’s scarred, bitter, and the only man she can trust to assuage the debilitating urge to mate.

Excerpt Monday ~ Mischief, Mongrols & Mayhem by Heather Long

1611103

Blurb ~

She has a future to decide on.…

Mischief Jones—Missy to her friends—has never taken the easy route in life. She turned down a full ride to a four-year school to attend her local college because it kept her close to Nene, the woman who raised her. A fosterling, she knows better than to share her secrets, and she has choices to make for her uncertain future, but the TA in her history class challenges and fills her with wary interest every time they meet.…

Nature made him a leader.…

Cade Hayes has a mission, and the last thing he expected to find on the tiny college campus was a mongrel—shifters of dubious parentage and mixed blood. But the mountain lion can’t deny the provocative nature of her scent or the allure to stalk her and make her his. He should drive her away; her presence threatens his claim for territory and his pride needs land, but he rapidly discovers he hungers to take this mongrel for a mate.…

In a fight to survive…will a mountain lion tame a liger?

Except ~

The female had bolted the moment class ended. Cade had been at Wasatch College for less than a week. He’d graduated from the University of New Mexico with a master’s degree the previous spring, and he’d shopped his next job with extreme care. Wasatch College sat in a picturesque valley in the Wasatch Mountain Range—open, beautiful, and perfect. Unclaimed territory.

Except for this feline in Burke’s sophomore world history class. He wanted to know who she was and what the hell she was doing there. The wise young kitty had fled, but she hadn’t been so fast as to clear the area before he exited the building. Orange spice and pine tickled his nostrils. He’d not scented her well enough to know if it was her, but when he scanned the area and settled his gaze on the trees—he couldn’t miss the rustle of the leaves.

Leaves rustling without a breeze? Not likely.

Intrigued, and determined, he slid through the hedges and strode across the green grass to stand in the shade of the tree. Above him, crouched on a branch, his quarry regarded him with honey-brown eyes and an expression of hostile curiosity.

“Come down, kitty,” he said in a low voice she should most certainly be able to hear.

The way her nose scrunched told him he hadn’t been wrong. Her mouth compressed into a thin line, and mutiny darkened her eyes. Pretty kitty or not, he would not tolerate disobedience. No pride or pack claimed this area—so the open land was subject to his claim.

He was Alpha.

Not her.

“Now.” He let his cat shine through his eyes. “Don’t make me repeat myself.”

Scowling, she continued her resistance and shifted from her crouch to sit on the branch, legs dangling in defiance. On closer inspection, her dusky skin was sun-drenched golden brown, her exotic features more Indian than Caucasian—and not Native American, but India Indian. Maybe a foreign transplant? An exchange student?

If so, they could work this out. His pride could provide her with protection until she left his territory. Extending her an offer of shelter would also solidify his claim. The stubborn kitten, however, continued her standoff, refusing to come down.

Shifting sideways, he scanned the area. Most of the students had cleared out. This lecture hall wasn’t situated near the library, dorms, or cafeteria. Scenting no one close and finding no one after a quick visual scan, he scaled the tree in two short leaps and landed on the branch nearest his prey.

Eyes wide, she stared at him, her muscles coiled. He caught her arm before she could leap away, and she raked claws down his biceps before he caught her other wrist. “Be nice, kitty. I haven’t tried to attack you.”

Even if she could make the argument he’d cornered her in the tree, he had invited her down first.

“Let me go.” Low, husky—like sex—her voice stroked his cock to stiffness.

“Promise not to run away?” Despite the sting of her claws and the coppery hint of blood she’d drawn, he didn’t want her any farther than she was at the moment. Her eyes went feline, deep gold and slitted.

“I don’t have to promise you anything.”

“Bad kitty.” He grinned. He hadn’t woken this morning planning a battle of wills, but this little kitten was no threat. Fear underscored her anger, and the same fear had her hackles up and claws out.

“Rude.” Another blink, and her eyes were human again.

“Effective,” he argued, and nodded to where he still shackled her wrists. “Promise to behave?”

Huffing out a sigh, she nodded. “I won’t claw your face off, but that’s all I’m promising.”

“Reasonable,” he said, without releasing her. “Add your name to sweeten the deal, and I’ll let go.”

Her eyebrows rose, and her nostrils flared. She wore her outrage beautifully. Amused at her unflinching defiance, he gave her time to think about his offer.

“Fine,” she growled. “My name is Missy. Now. Let. Me. Go.”

A deal was a deal. He released her wrists and dropped to the ground even as she did because he’d expected her to flee. “You could give a guy a complex, trying to run away like you are.”

Thursday Thoughts: Wait, did I just tweet that?

I’ve recently become quite addicted to Twitter. I’d been a reluctant convert for some time, because as it happens with most new social media, I just didn’t get it. Hell, it took me forever to get a personal Facebook account because I was wary of being connected to so many people all at once. I mean, I like people, but I gots to have my space. So when I began to put more energy in the marketing aspect of my writing, I realized quickly I needed to get myself sorted when it came to social media. I good dig blogging because that was an extension of what I loved doing. Writing. The list kept growing as I tacked on more avenues to connect with readers, but the idea of having to create daily soundbites in 140 characters or less was still freaking me out.

Needless to say I’ve gotten over my aversion and have been known to exclaim, “I need to tweet that!” at some point in the day (I actually did it today). I’d had just my toe in for so long, it wasn’t until I’d finally dived into the deep in that I needed to take a step back and look at what I was doing. My Twitter account is not a “personal” account, but instead an extension of the brand I’m creating as a writer. In the beginning I’d used it solely to promote my writing, tweeting when a book was released, or posting a link to a blog I’d written or been featured in, but I had no voice beyond trying desperately to get people to read my work. Some time back I read an article (or blog because it’s become apparently clear the two words have become interchangeable in our culture) about not being that junk tweeter, trying to get people to buy your product. I took the message to heart and began altering the way in which I communicated on Twitter and now I have a new dilemma, checking myself.

I’m a naturally snarky personality that’s prone to ragey rants about injustices that vary from the social construction of gender to my inability to find the cheese I like at the market. I’m a huge people watcher, critic of human foibles, and general instigator of mayhem in my personal life. Who knew 140 characters was just what I needed to get all of the quirky little quips that dance at the edge of my tongue out. In my excitement to tweet all of the nuances I’d usually observed in life but didn’t have an ability to document at rapid speed, I’d forgotten that this wasn’t my “personal” account. This was at the end of the day, me trying to not look like I desperately want people to buy my books. In fact, I have probably spent more time crafting tweets in the last few weeks than I’ve done working on a WIP. In essence, I’ve been playing with my new toy and not thinking about why I even have the damn toy. I’ve gone to tweet something and had to pull back, think about, really think about it because, well, I’m me and as much as I don’t want to be that person that bombards folks with tweets that say “Buy Me!” I also don’t want to bombard them with tweets that are basically a sharp tongued stream of consciousness. It’s hard keeping that balance at times but now that I’ve noticed I’m committed to being better. Fingers crossed I keep to that commitment.

Excerpt Monday ~ Diva by Imari Jade

Diva

Blurb ~

Native New Orleanian Lena Monroe is given the chance of a lifetime when she meets music promoter Edward (Eddie) Anderson when he discovers her singing and cleaning his hotel room. She is literally swept off her feet by the handsome and dashing white man with the sexy green eyes, and she naively follows him to Los Angeles. Once she gets everything she wants, Lena discovers that fame comes with a price. Is she willing to let a man walk all over her just to be a superstar?

Eddie Anderson took one look at the domestic goddess cleaning his room and thought he’d died and gone to heaven. Not only did she have a beautiful face, but she had a rocking body to go with it. When he heard her sing, he felt like the clouds had opened up and unleashed an angel. But could he be satisfied with just one woman when he was used to having females throw themselves at his feet?

Excerpt ~

The last thing Eddie Anderson expected to see in his hotel suite was a young black woman singing and dancing to an old Bee Gees’ song. She had no clue he had returned to his room because she’d been deep into her performance. And what an enchanting sight from the back with her wide hips swaying erotically to the beat.

She hurried past him to the nightstand and turned the radio off. “I’m sorry. I love music,” she said, rewarding him with an alluring yet friendly smile.

“What’s your name?” Eddie asked her as he ran his gaze over her from head to toe. She was simply gorgeous with an oval face, almond-shaped brown eyes heavy with dark lashes and a mouth he wouldn’t mind kissing. She wore her black hair in one thick braid down her back.

“Lena. Lena Monroe.”

“Hi, Lena Monroe, My name is Edward Anderson, but everyone calls me Eddie. I like music too and I think you have a smashing voice.”

The smile on her face made two little dimples appear. He guessed she might have had a little Choctaw Indian in her. He could tell this from those high cheek bones, slim nose and that hair. He’d met a wide variety of people since coming to New Orleans a little over a week ago. He loved the culture, the laid back way they spoke, and of course he dug the food.

“I love your voice. Have you ever thought about becoming a singer?”

“Every day of my life,” Lena answered.

She had a rich alto tone to go with all the sexy brown sugar. Just the sound made him feel hot beneath the collar.

Eddie pulled a business card out of his pocket and handed it to her. “Look me up if you’re ever in Los Angeles.”

Lena looked down at the card he’d given her and ran her finger over the raised lettering. “Is this for real?”

Eddie’s heart beat like a bass drum as her voice got to him. It had a hint of innocence to it. “Yes, it’s for real. Do you think they’d let any old bum rent the penthouse suite?”

Lena looked embarrassed for a moment. A deep blush appeared on her face. She lowered his eyes.

My god she is an innocent. “How old are you?”

“Twenty-three,” Lena answered, raising her eyes again. “How old are you?”

“Old enough to know better,” Eddie answered, checking her out again. “I’m thirty-two.”

“That’s not very old,” Lena said.

“I’m older than you,” Eddie teased. “But I’m serious about the singing. Call me if you ever make it to Los Angeles and I’ll schedule an appointment for you to audition.”

She looked at him like she didn’t believe him, but she did give him another smile as she prepared to leave. “Nice meeting you.”

Eddie held the door open for her while she maneuvered her cart out of the room. “Nice meeting you too, Lena.” He watched her walk away. Nice ass and legs. Damn. Eddie closed his door and walked to the kitchenette where he had placed the roast beef po-boy sandwich he’d left his room to get. Later he had a meeting with some New Orleans backers about concert time for one of his groups who would be performing in a couple of months at the Jazz Festival. He was scheduled to leave in two days and head back to Los Angeles, but he had plans to go to Harrah’s Casino for a little while and off to the Quarter to hear some of the local bands performing on Bourbon Street before he called it a night. His thoughts drifted back to Lena Monroe. She came with her own stage name. He wondered if maybe he should have invited her out to dinner and gotten to know her better. Hopefully he would see her again before he checked out of the hotel.

Best Woman for the Job (Jenkins Family Book 0) by Sharon C. Cooper

NEVER SAY NEVER…ESPECIALLY IF THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB…IS A WOMAN

When plumber, Toni (TJ) Jenkins, shows up at Cincinnati police officer, Craig Logan’s house to repair his plumbing issues, he thinks it’s a joke, but soon finds out the joke is on him. Toni is the finest plumber he’s ever seen. Will Craig realize before it’s too late, that not only is she the best woman for the job, but she’s also the best woman for him?

This is a short story prequel to – Still the Best Woman for the Job.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Caprice was on the fast track to becoming a young CEO. Raised by her former supermodel mother, Caprice was supposed to follow the path that her mother’s stilettos left. Until a letter from her father, mafia don; Domani Bonatelli, changed the course of her life.
Four years later, living in New York City, Caprice abandoned the life she had once cherished and focused solely on obtaining what her father has… power.
At 22 and fully engrossed in a life of crime, Caprice has a job to do.

Protect the Bonatelli name and family business at all costs…but what exactly will it cost her?


 

Thursday Thoughts: Joie du sexe

I’ve been in a slump after a fruitful bit of writing frenzy. I’m going to blame the heat as it feels as if it’s Dante’s Inferno in Southern California, and the heat brings out all of my feline tendencies. Therefore, when I realized Thursday Thoughts were coming up I was seized with indecision as to what to write about. I’ve been doing this little gig for some time now, and the fear of repeating myself constantly looms overhead. My thoughts are varied and eclectic but can be circuitous at times, and I find myself back where I started. In an effort to not be another talking head, blah, blah, blahing about romance I decided to go through my personal website and see what I’ve been up to over the years. I discovered that there was variety, eclectic subjects, and most definitely circuitous prose bandying about on the page.

So, for this post I began to comb through my blogs trying to find what links all of the ramblings that I put out into the universe and I came to the conclusion that I really enjoy sex. Not just any old sex, but the kind that is hot, sweaty, sweetly dirty, and committed to the mutual fulfillment of both partners. I want to tell the story of couples that are committed to each other, if only for a moment of explosive passion, or a lifetime of tiny earthquakes that break them down and build them up to something stronger and grounded more firmly in each other. I want there to be love, lust, and anything else that falls on the spectrum of what happens when two people (or three or four) share their bodies with each other so intimately. I want a lot it seems when it comes to the three little word “sex” and I want to share it with as many people as possible.

Therefore, when I came upon this short little ditty I’d written when the weather wasn’t so oppressively hot, and my synapsis were firing away thoughts of delightfully naughty things, I knew sharing would be the perfect expression of caring. Hopefully the weather will reach a manageable temperature by next week and I’ll be back to my happily rambling self. Until then, enjoy my idea of the joy of sex.

Softly Whispering Words of Wonder

“If you can’t be still, I’m going to stop.”

His words are a soft whisper against my skin that causes me to gasp with anticipation. I can’t help but squirm when he touches me like this, fingers light but purposeful, honing in on all of the parts of my body that have become used to his unique brand of pleasure. I am wanton and needy, aching for the fulfillment I only ever seem to achieve with him. He pauses as I moan with frustration and it is all the warning I need to obey his command.

“Very good,” he breathes out against the damp column of my neck.

Very good, indeed, I think as he begins to lift my skirt ever so slightly. I can’t believe we’re doing this but I couldn’t imagine stopping. He traces the edges of my damp panties and I resist the urge to shift my body at just the right angle to have us touching skin to oh so sensitive skin. He must sense my longing and instead of torturing me, drawing out the inevitable, he slips his fingers under the delicate lace and softly strokes me.

“Is this for me?”

His husky whisper is equal parts teasing and wonder. He knows that it is always for him but it is his asking that I find so appealing. He never takes for granted what we create and it feeds my desire each time, like food plucked from the garden of the gods. His other hand grips the back of my neck and tilts my head at just the right angle so I can be kissed properly. The room we have found is too dark for me to see his eyes but I don’t need light to see the love that is reflected there. I sob softly as he kisses me firmly and slips two of his fingers inside of me, with his thumb applying just the right amount of pressure to my sensitive bud. When he pulled me away from the party I knew this was his intent but now that it has finally happened I can’t help feeling as if this is a newly exciting thing we have discovered.

“I love to make you come,” he whispers against my lips, with a slight hitch in his voice.

“I love to come for you,” I reply with a hiss of pleasure.

It’s a truth that we enjoy together and it is a fact that causes my body to tense, pulsing with the need for release, just waiting for…one…more…stroke.

“If you can’t be still, I’m going to stop,” he whispers playfully.
