WereSlave - Excerpt #3 (Adult content)

Excerpt #3:

Mace raked his gaze down to the lush cleavage spilling from her dress. He gave up trying to fight the attraction. It was an impossible mission. The wolf inside of him, the part that was difficult to control, was clawing to be released, weakening his human side. It had been too long since he’d transformed, too long since he’d felt the moon’s empowering glow.

He gritted his jaw. How simple it would be to break through the boarded windows and run into the night. But leaving wasn’t an option as long as his pack was imprisoned. Which wouldn’t be for much longer if Nayla was honest about agreeing to feed them. If it were true, soon they might have enough strength to overpower the guards.

With his naïve Nayla occupied, they might have a better chance.

“Do you trust me, Mace?” She stared up at him, her eyes glossy against the dim light of the oil lamp. “I promise I’ll make your life pleasant. And I’ll be loyal to you.” She brushed her fingers down the center of his abdomen and her voice dropped to a sensual whisper. “If you continue to satisfy me, I’ll give you my all.”

His stomach clenched against her touch as pressure built in his groin. No, he’d not be so foolish as to put his life in this woman’s hands. But he’d gladly allow her to satisfy him for now. And, damn it if he didn’t want to give her more pleasure.

Like an addict reaching for his drug, Mace seized her wrist and pressed her hand against his erection. His blood coursed through his body, rushing toward her touch as she wrapped her cool, soft fingers around his cock.

He inhaled a rough breath and guided her up and down his shaft. With his hypersensitive Were senses on overload, he caught the musky scent of her pussy as she grew moist for him.

His balls knotted achingly tight. “Have you ever had a man in your mouth, Nayla?”

WereSlave - Excerpt #2 (Adult content!)

Excerpt #2:

He stood before her naked with a roguish grin on his face. She’d almost forgotten how stunning he was. Almost. Her heart thumped and her temperature rose a few degrees as she searched his lean, muscled body for any type of restraint. But there were none.

“What? Are you feeling shy all of a sudden?” He gripped his beautiful cock. “Did you forget how this felt inside you?”

“That’s not an appropriate way to speak to me.” Her voice squeaked when she spoke and perspiration dampened her skin. Yes, she remembered exactly how he’d felt inside her. And she wanted it again.

“No? I’m simply beginning from where we left off last night.” He took a step closer. “No ‘fuck me, Mace’ tonight? No ‘have my body as you wish’?”

“That was in the throes of passion.” She stepped back.

“Be honest, Nayla. You want me chained. That’s what heats your blood, isn’t it? A WereSlave to fulfill your perverted desires.” His smile broadened.

“I’m not a pervert. Many Queens before me have chosen a Were as a lover for…for our needs. It’s very common.”

In a fluid motion, he closed the distance between them and lifted his hands to cup her face. “What if I don’t wish to be chosen as your sex slave?” Frowning now, his gaze lingered on her lips. “What if I choose to kidnap you? What if I tied you up and used your body whenever I had needs? Would that make me an animal?”

WereSlave Release Day!!!!! (Excerpt #1)

WereSlave is now available for download from Ellora's Cave! I'm posting a few excerpts today. Hope you enjoy!


As the Queen of Paqualette, Nayla is forbidden to have a husband or a human lover. Her life is a lonely and disciplined existence, so when she’s given the opportunity to choose a Were from her dungeon as her sex slave, she takes a chance. Werewolves, she knows, are nothing but senseless monsters, but after the one she selects to be her WereSlave turns out to be more of a man than she’s ever known, she must question her beliefs.

As the alpha leader, Mace is responsible for his pack. He’ll do anything to keep them alive, even give into the Queen’s sexual demands. But not unless he’s in control. Turning his enticing captor into the submissive is the only way to show her he’s more man than she realizes. Falling in love is out of the question, but so is leaving her behind.

Excerpt #1:
He easily ripped the underdress open, exposing her bare breasts. Cold air met her feverish skin, cooling her only for a moment. She met his gaze again and saw that apprehension lurked in his eyes, as if he expected an objection to what he’d done to her dress.

He wouldn’t get one.

Her heart sped and her pussy ached for more. For his hands all over her. For his hardened cock inside of her.

His gorgeous lips turned up to a smirk as he grabbed her upper arms and lifted her to his body to press her against his chest. The useless chains had so much slack there wasn’t much of a point to them. Not here on this bed.

The danger of it thrilled her. God, what was wrong with her? She didn’t know. This was insane. He was an animal and could kill her with his bare hands. Yet, the possibility that unbound pleasure was near forced her to silence.

He lowered his mouth to her neck, just below her jaw, and kissed her ever so softly before whispering, “Now you’re at my mercy, my Queen.”

She gulped down the fear rising inside her throat as he used the torn dress as a tool to confine her arms behind her back, twisting the cloth with her arms still tight in their sleeves.

“Wait.” Her mind blurred and her body hummed. This wasn’t what she had planned. To be controlled? To lose her power?


“Why should I wait?” His voice was deep and sensual, soothing her.

“I…I don’t know. I’m not sure I want to be tied.”

With gentleness unbecoming a monster, he turned her onto her stomach. Her entire body shook with need as he propped up her bottom and nudged himself between her thighs.

“You want to play slave and master?” His deep voice seemed a mile away as he ground out the words. “Then I will be the master.”

WereSlave - Available December 30th

WereSlave has a release date! The erotic paranormal romance (erotic fairy tale, I like to call it) will be available in eBook form from Ellora's Cave on December 30th, only a couple weeks away. I'm very excited.

I'm thinking up a contest to have. More news on that later.

And I'm almost ready to submit Were Seduction to my editor. Another short novel with a lot of heat. :-) This is Kaige's story, since I fell in love with him in the first book.

Anyway, just wanted to share the good news.

Happy reading!

The Winner of After Hours Is...

Mary Ricksen!! Congrats Mary! Please contact Lynne at to get your copy of After Hours.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!!


Monday, December 14, 2009

Writer with Sizzle: Lynne Roberts

Please welcome back Lynne Roberts! She’s celebrating the recent release of her sizzling book, After Hours, and is giving away a free eBook copy to one lucky winner. Feel free to ask questions and leave an email if you want to be contacted directly. Check back Wednesday eve!!

Lia: What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Lynne: There are many things I love about writing. Finding that perfect order of words that says just what you mean, hearing that someone else loved your book, but my favorite part of being a romance writer is falling in love with my characters and their love story. That first moment of discovery…. heaven.

Lia: Oh, that is the best part, isn’t it? I love that. What’s your secret to writing a steamy scene?

Lynne: Inez Kelly actually said something once that made it click for me. Slow everything down. So that’s what I do. I let the scene play out in slow motion in my head and then I focus on all the senses: touch, sight, smell, taste, sound. I’m still learning and at times I have to go back and focus on one sense or another or position my characters a little differently, but it all comes together.

Lia: That’s excellent advice. Speaking of steamy scenes, what’s your favorite sexual position to write about?

Lynne: It must be standing up. LOL. Against the wall, against a desk…I will have you all know that I have finally written a sex scene in a bed. Yay! That story doesn’t have a home yet, but I’ll keep you updated.

Lia: Nothing wrong with a little mattress action. :-) Has anything in your real life ever inspired a scene for your book?

Lynne: Yes. A single incident inspired After Hours. I was taking my teen daughter to school and waiting at a red light when across the road walks this man. He had wide shoulders, narrow hips, obviously muscular, but what caught my attention was the way he moved. I swear there was something supernatural about the way his hips moved. I watched him walk all the way… to the high school. Yes. He was a student! All I can say is they didn’t make boys like that when I was in high school. Here is an excerpt from After Hours:

Some men simply walk across a room, but not David.

Elle Simpson watched from her office as the new intern, his hips moving in a predatory roll, strolled to the copier and stood with his back toward her. No, not David.

She felt the color rise in her cheeks as her gaze traced his body, from the dark hair just curling at the nape of his neck, past wide shoulders, to the dangerous-looking narrow hips and an ass made for grabbing. Her body warmed and her inner thighs began to tingle.

Lia: Wait! Don’t stop! Now, that was a tease. Love “predatory roll”. Wow, what a visual. Where can readers find your books?

Lynne: My books are available at the Wilder Rose Press or Fictionwise.

Lia: Well, this interview didn’t last long enough for me. :-) Always a pleasure to have you, Lynne!!

Lynne: Thank you for having me, Lia!

The Cover for WereSlave

Here's the cover for WereSlave. What do you think? Not too shabby, right? I love the background, the castle and the heroine in the moon. And the hero is quite lovely (although I do have to point out that he doesn't have facial hair in the book, just so ya know :-))

Release date is to be determined but hopefully it's not too far off. I'm working on the second book in the series right now, Were Seduction, and I'm almost finished!

Here's a blurb for WereSlave:

As the Queen of Paqualette, Nayla is forbidden to have a husband or a human lover. Her life is a lonely and disciplined existence, so when she’s given the opportunity to choose a Were from her dungeon as her sex slave, she takes a chance. Werewolves are nothing but senseless monsters, she knows from firsthand experience. But after the one she selects to be her WereSlave turns out to be more of a man than she’d ever known, she must question her beliefs.

As the alpha leader, Mace is responsible for his pack. He’ll do anything to keep them alive, even give into the Queen’s sexual demands. But not unless he’s in control. Turning his enticing captor into the submissive is the only way to show her he’s more man than she realizes. Falling in love with Nayla is out of the question but will he be able to leave her behind when his pack is finally free?

The Winner of Paisley Smith's Birthday Girl is...

Paisley picked a winner of her eBook Birthday Girl. Congratulations to Anna Shah Hoque (s7anna)!! Paisley will be sending it over to you soon.

Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by!!!

Writer with Sizzle: Paisley Smith

Paisley Smith needs an author tagline! And she’s giving away an eBook copy of her story, Birthday Girl, to the person who comes up with the best idea. “Paisley Smith – Writer with Sizzle” is taken, folks, so come up with something else! Can't wait to hear your ideas. Should be fun!

Lia: Hi Paisley! What physical aspect does your heroine love most about your heroine? Details, please!

Paisley: Since I write F/F and F/F/M romance, my heroines like a combination of sensuality, intelligence and independence. My heroines are confident women in themselves but are a bit uncertain how to bring that confidence to a new relationship.

In my upcoming Ellora’s Cave quickie, Beyond Curious, Annie had agreed to her grandmother’s dying wish that she take piano lessons. In the following excerpt, Annie arrives and discovers her predisposed notions about piano her teacher was wrong. Very wrong.


Although the pianist’s left hand was obscured by the drapery, Annie could see Mrs. Granger’s right hand lithely gliding up and down the keyboard.

Just as her consciousness submerged completely into the music, the musician abruptly stopped and stood, turning to discover her spying like some sort of peeping tom.

But no quicker than Annie had glimpsed her teacher, she vanished and Annie heard the doorknob turning. The screen door creaked as the widow pushed it open.

Annie gaped.

This was hardly the old cat woman in worn out house shoes she had imagined.

Mrs. Granger was beautiful. Her blonde hair fell in an ethereal mass of waves just below her shoulders. Minimal makeup made highlighted her fresh faced appearance. Her white blouse and black skirt were stylish, yet professional. Annie had expected an old crone of seventy to greet her wearing a floral print muumuu. This woman had to be in her thirties—if that. The only thing that gave away her age was the wisdom in her eyes which emanated from behind a pair of bright blue reading glasses.

Everything about her seemed feminine and soft and the way her gaze traveled down Annie’s body and back up again made Annie wish she’d worn something besides the jeans and boots she wore to her job at the humane shelter every morning. A smile claimed Mrs. Granger’s pink glossed lips. “You must be Annie.”

Annie patted the embroidered patch bearing her name on her shirt pocket. “Yep. That’s me. How’d you ever guess?” She suddenly wanted to kick herself. Hard. Jeez, she sounded like a star struck moron.

Lia: Love it! Is there anything special you do to get “in the mood” before writing a sex scene?

Paisley: Before I write a sex scene, I block it out in my mind. Well…that’s just a nice way of saying I fantasize about it. Hemingway said, “Write drunk. Edit sober.” I don’t exactly write drunk but often I will enjoy a glass of red wine while I write a love scene. And then, I just let the characters do what comes naturally. Writing the love scene is like watching a movie of it my head. I try to grasp the emotions first, and then write the action and dialogue accordingly.

Lia: What is the hottest scene you ever wrote?

Paisley: My favorite hot scene is in Birthday Girl. It’s an F/F/M ménage story about a married couple who want to experiment with a third party—a sexy female friend. The scene combined all my favorites. A strong hero, wine and outdoor sex!

Here’s a teaser:

The outdoor air felt different on my nude flesh than the inside air had, as if I were more exposed and vulnerable. My nipples tightened and chills skittered up and down my arms and legs.

Nate’s warm hands cradled my bottom and Lindsey’s palms moved over my breasts. I melted between them, overwhelmed by sensation. Nate’s cock was hard and I felt it prodding me through his clothes. Lindsey ground against me erotically while her hands roamed over my body leaving wildfire in their wake. Nate’s hands skidded over my skin and at first, I tried to sort out who was touching me and where.

Don’t think. Just feel.

I heard myself moan. Blindfolded and inundated with touch, my consciousness spiraled completely inside my body. All coherent thought fled and there were only four hands, two big and two small. Two mouths tormented the most sensitive parts of my body. The nape of my neck. My breasts. My mouth. Oh God, my ears.

Then lower. I groaned.

Without warning, Nate lifted me, bracing my back against his chest, holding me up by the thighs and spreading me wide for my female lover’s mouth. I cried for sweet mercy as Lindsey’s mouth locked on my clit. Heaven. This was pure heaven.

Lia: Okay, I’m fanning! Hot stuff, Paisley! Where is the wildest place your characters have had sexual relations?

Paisley: In my Scintillating Sample, First Taste, a free download from Ellora’s Cave, my two heroines reunite at a high school reunion planning committee and they make out in the bathroom at the restaurant. I love writing “private but still in public” love scenes. I thought this one was hot because it’s the first time the heroines have been together in several years.


Her lips stretched into a smile as she twisted the doorknob with one hand and snatched mine with the other. Giggling, she dragged me into the bathroom with her and before the light was even on, she pushed me against the wall and covered my mouth with hers.

I melted.

It had been so long but the memories swept back over me in a torrent. I moaned, opening for her to admit her tongue. My own sparred with hers. My hands skimmed her body, caressing her through her flimsy dress.

The lock clicked. The light snapped on and I found myself staring at the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. All those years ago… Had I been in love with her then? Because I was fairly certain I was in love with her now.

My hands moved over the curve of her ass and then down to where I dragged up her skirt. Fuck me! No panties. My lashes fluttered shut as her mouth fused with mine again.

Her thighs opened as I reached between them. She was as wet as I was. My heart hammered and I worked my fingers through her slippery folds, searching, finding…ah, yes, there.

She moaned as I pushed one finger up inside her. A tremor shook her body. I explored her, tasting her mouth, breathing in the scent of her feminine perfume. My senses were inundated with her and with my surroundings. My skin tingled with her touch. My ears pounded with the rock music blaring through the speakers. I’d never felt so alive.

My free hand brushed over one of her breasts. No bra. Her nipple was diamond hard and grew even harder when I rolled it between my thumb and middle finger. She dragged her mouth from mine and clung to my shoulders. “I want you to eat me.”

Lia: Whew! Am I blushing? :-) Where can readers find your sizzling books, Paisley?

Writer with Sizzle: Cari Quinn

Please welcome Cari Quinn!

A little about Cari:

Cari Quinn wrote her first story - a bible parable - in 2nd grade, much to the delight of the nuns at her Catholic school. Once she saw the warm reception that first tale garnered, she was hooked. She attempted her first romance in junior high, long before she'd ever read one. Writing what she knew always took a backseat to what she wanted to know, and that still holds true today. Cari's genres of choice include contemporary, romantic comedy, romantic suspense, urban fantasy and paranormal. Recently she discovered erotic romance. Oh, how far she's come…

Visit her at

Lia: Hi Cari! What physical aspect does your heroine love most about your hero? Details, please!

Cari: Holly's fond of just about all of Alex's attributes. I understand why. I happen to agree he's pretty hot. ;) But the thing she loves most, physically, about him? Probably his size (take that any way you would like, ladies) and his strength. Holly's not a small woman - she's tall and full-figured - but Alex is even taller than she is and he has no trouble picking her up and making her feel womanly. She's also very appreciative of his stamina. (As you will see if you read Full Disclosure, he's certainly...enthusiastic. LOL)

Lia: Be still my heart! What does your heroine love most about your hero? Least?

Cari: Tough question. She'd be tempted to say his body first - hey, the guy's hot and young and used to spend lots of hours surfing, so he's pretty ripped - but the truth is she loves his sense of adventure. Alex isn't afraid of putting his heart on the line and he lives life to the fullest. He's wild and impulsive and loves to do whatever pops into his mind.

What she loves least? Probably the same thing, LOL. Holly's a bit more pragmatic about life and is used to living by set rules - and those rules don't include dating a work colleague that's twelve years younger than she is. Alex doesn't see the problem. That whole "wants what he wants when he wants it" thing rearing its ugly head yet again. ;)

Lia: These two sound like a great match. Love it! Have your characters used sex toys? How did that go?

Cari: Oh yeah, they have! Actually one sex toy in particular plays a pretty big role in the book. Since I'm not nearly as much a woman of the world as Holly is, I'd never heard of a tongue vibrator until I was stumbling around online one night. But the story possibilities were too much for me to resist.

Here's a snippet from one of the scenes where Alex whips out his Tongue Zinger, though here he just uses it like a regular vibrator. He's an inventive guy. ;)


“Playing hard to get, are you?”

“Maybe.” Holly's smile glimmered. “Gonna…come and get me?”

“After you come first.” He palmed his toy and pressed a button, setting off a low buzz as he clamped his fingers over her swollen nipple.

“Alex.” She jolted as he upped the vibration. “Oh, God, Alex.”

“I like it when you moan my name.” He hit the button again and the amps increased. She quaked beneath him. “Do it again.”

“What the hell is that? Some kind of stun gun?” She rolled her head to the side, searching for the source of the sensation.

“Yeah, a miniature one.” Alex kept his fingers curved around the toy, blocking her view. “Stop analyzing. Just enjoy.”

He bumped the vibrator up to the highest setting and directed his attention to her other breast. This time, he took a circuitous path over its fullness before reaching the tip. She whimpered, practically writhing from his ministrations.

Sweet hell, she would feel amazing around him. Under him. And he didn’t know how much longer he could wait.

Lia: Um, I think I really like Alex!! Hot excerpt, Cari! Where can readers find and read the rest of this story?

Cari: Full Disclosure is out now at The Wild Rose Press's Wilder Roses… Buy Link:

Lia: I have my copy. Get on over there and buy it, folks! Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Cari!

Writer with Sizzle: Missy Martine

Please welcome Missy Martine! Missy is giving away a free eBook copy of Table for Three (currently a Siren/Bookstrand bestseller! Congrats, Missy!) to one lucky commenter, so be sure to give her some love. Come back tomorrow (Wednesday) to see if you’ve won and pretty please leave your email address in the comments, if possible, so Missy can send it to you directly. Thanks!!

Lia: Hi, Missy! Have you ever cried, or laughed out loud while writing a scene?

Missy: Absolutely! In Table for Three it was laughter. Cass was so far out of her depth with her twin gods that she frequently had me snickering.

Here’s an example:

Very gently, he touched his lips to hers, swiping his tongue over the seam of her lips just once. “What about me?” David called out, dragging her attention away from Matt.

Turning her head to look at him, Cass had to laugh out loud. David had put on a fake pouty face, like a spoiled child who didn’t get what he wanted for Christmas. “We certainly can’t forget you,” Cass said as she started to lean down to touch her lips to his.

Suddenly, Demon and Angel came bounding into the room and jumped up on the foot of the bed, barking once to announce their arrival. “Eeeeeeek!” Cass saw the large animals out of the corner of her eye and screamed. Her only thought was to escape. She blindly pushed off with her legs and arms, making a dash to the side of the bed nearest the door. Unfortunately, she had to go over David to reach it. As she scrambled away, her feet came in contact with Matt’s legs, and she used him to propel herself forward, nearly knocking him off the bed in the process. Her arms wildly pushed down to give herself leverage, pummeling David in the head and shoulders.

Lia: Funny scene! How do your characters enjoy their playtime? Rough? Playful? Tender?

Missy: In this book they are always tender. Cass came from an abusive marriage and the men take a lot of extra care to make sure she feels treasured and loved.

Here’s a short example:

Cass whirled her head back around when she felt a delicious sensation at her breast. Matt had taken her nipple into his mouth and was sucking gently. He pulled back and ran his tongue around her dusky areola and then licked the hardened tip. He sat back up and together, he and David gently lowered Cass down until she lay on the pillows. Both men stretched out beside her.

Both men latched onto a nipple, and sucked hard. The feeling grew so intense, Cass arched her body up off the floor trying to push more of her breasts into their hot, moist mouths. Matt pulled away, and David leaned in and thrust his tongue into her mouth, easily coaxing hers to come out and play. While his tongue played with hers, his hands moved to fondle her breasts, pinching and rolling the nipples back and forth between his thumb and forefinger. Gently, he tugged on them, causing Cass to bite her lip to keep from screaming out in pleasure.

So caught up in David’s erotic kiss and the attention he paid to her breasts, she didn’t feel Matt as he slowly slid her sweat pants down her thighs and off the bottom of her feet. Now she lay displayed in just her blue thong.

Lia: Love it! It’s sweet and sexy at the same time. What is your favorite think about being a romance writer?

Missy: I think the fact that I can let my imagination run wild. It’s fiction, so the characters can do just about anything they want, and it’s still okay. Growing up we all had to live with rules and certain codes of conduct. We might have wanted to break them, but most of us never had the courage. With my books, my characters can do all the things I never got to do. It’s been a great way to jump-start my romantic life as well. I’m, well let’s just say I’m over 50, and writing these books have put new fantasies in my life. They’ve enabled me to see that romance and passion doesn’t have to stop when we reach a certain age. If we work at it, it can be ageless. I didn’t start writing until I was 47 years old. I’d been a nurse, and owned a medical billing service before that. I had a series of small strokes that make it impossible for me to continue working outside the home, so I took up the writing as a hobby. It opened up a whole new area of imagination that I didn’t even know I had.

Lia: Very inspirational, Missy! Where can we find your sizzling books?

Missy: You can find my books at Siren/Bookstrand -

I have the beginning book of a Trilogy coming out in January called “Discovering Her Wolfen Heritage” – erotic paranormal romance, shapeshifter

Lia: Ooh, sounds good! Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Missy!!

Writer with Sizzle: Helen Hardt

Please welcome a good friend of mine and an exceptionally talented, multi-published writer of some seriously sizzling romance, Helen Hardt!

Lia: Hi, Helen! What's your secret to writing a steamy scene?

Helen: Emotion, emotion, emotion! I never head hop, so I choose which character's POV I'm gong to use, and then I become him or her. I dig deep, get inside her head. What is she feeling beneath her fingertips? Smelling? Hearing? Seeing? Tasting? Feeling inside? How is her body reacting physically to the stimuli? To his words? I try to use all five senses plus inner feeling to create vivid word pictures of the scene. I've been known to devote five pages to a first kiss. Lots of sensory detail, lots of emotion, lots of sexy dialogue -- it adds up to one hot scene!

Lia: Sounds good to me! Do you have any advice for the budding romance writer?

Helen: Self-educate! Don't ever stop learning. Learn from every critique, every contest judge, every rejection. There is a wealth of valuable information available from successful authors. Use it. I went from dismal contest results, to winning contests, to getting published all within a year. I attribute that success to self-education. Also, for erotic romance writers, never shy away from anything. I once said I'd never write a ménage. Then I challenged myself to find a ménage situation that worked for me. Now I've written three. One is published and one is under contract. Something I once felt I could never do led to my first contract with Ellora's Cave, Slow and Wet, which released two days ago. So I'm glad I challenged myself.

Lia: Great advice, Helen.

Excerpt from Slow and Wet:

“Trav, this is my girl, Jillian Reynolds.”

A rush of warmth coursed through Jill at the words “my girl”.

“Mighty pleased to make your acquaintance, ma’am.” Travis squeezed her hand, and a flare of heat skittered over her skin. “Seems Dale has all the luck. Beautiful women have always flocked to him.”

Jill leaned farther into Dale’s chest, but Travis continued to hold her hand, rubbing his thumb into her palm. His touch felt nice. Which wasn’t good. She whisked her hand away.

“Remember the good old days?” He spoke to Dale, but he stared at Jill, dropping his gaze to her breasts which were still crushed against cowboy number one. “When we did everything together?”

Dale cleared his throat. “I remember.”

“We were team ropers,” Travis said to Jill. “Champions. Started when we were kids. Couple years ago, though, I went solo in ropin’, and Dale here switched to bustin’ broncs. I’ve been away since then, tourin’ the circuit.”

“And you, Dale?” Jill raised her gaze to his brown eyes.

“You know where I’ve been, darlin’. Here, helpin’ my grandma run this place. Doin’ the local rodeos.”

“But didn’t you ever want to tour?”

“Heck, no. I’m a homebody. I’m happy here, runnin’ the ranch,” he smiled, “hangin’ out with you.” He turned to Travis. “Jill’s from Denver.”

“I took you for a big-city gal,” Travis said. “What are you doin’ in a little cow-town like Sweetwater Junction, Wyoming?”

“I’m in computer sales. A few months ago, an opportunity came up to relocate here, and I jumped at it. I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle.”

Travis chuckled and shook his head. “If only I’d come home sooner, I might have seen you first.” He winked. “’Course that didn’t always matter.”


Jill’s heart raced beneath her chest. Why? From being held in Dale’s strong arms, no doubt. Or was something else going on?


Shit, she was still naked. “Uh, Dale? I need to—”

“Yeah, you sure do, darlin’.” He grabbed her rump and lifted her, and she wrapped her legs around his waist. “We’ll be back in a minute, Trav. Fully clothed.”

“Damn,” Travis said. “Can’t say I’ve seen enough of the beauty of my hometown just yet.”

“Yeah, you have,” Dale said, walking back to the bedroom. He looked over his shoulder. “You’ve seen all of Jill you’re gonna see, pal.”

“Don’t be so sure about that, buddy.”

Had Jill imagined the words? Or had they actually come from the gorgeous blond cowboy?

She tightened her thighs around Dale’s sexy waist. Didn’t matter anyway. She needed to get dressed and then douse herself with about a gallon of Dale’s honey-lemonade.

Then maybe go jump into Sweetwater Lake.

And she wasn’t even sure that would cool her off today.

Lia: Whew! I’ve had the pleasure of reading this sizzling story pre-published so I can assure everyone that the rest of this is just as hot. So go out and get your copy, folks!

Writer with Sizzle: Cerise DeLand

Please welcome Cerise DeLand! Cerise is giving away one of her eBooks to a lucky commenter. Reader’s choice! So be sure to give her some love. (I'll announce the winner on Wednesday evening so be sure to check back.)

Lia: How do your characters enjoy their playtime? Rough? Playful? Tender? All of the above?

Cerise: Rough, playful, tender, funny, strong and enduring. Those are ALL the qualities of my characters when they make love to each other! Isn’t that what we all want and need? Tireless and creative lovers are my main passion and I try to get them on the page and into bed! Or on a kitchen counter. Or on a rack in a dungeon. (Really!) Or on a desk in a mile-high private jet over Dubai. Or in a Parisian club where couples go to share themselves and their experiences.

Love scenes are for mouth-watering delights in almost any place that is comfortable for the raw enjoyment of an exciting partner!

Lia: You definitely have my interest piqued. What is the hottest scene you ever wrote?

Cerise: The hottest scene I ever wrote—and the most difficult—was in my ménage, HER THREE-WAY MERGER. This was the first ménage I ever wrote and the choreography really got me all hot and bothered! In so many ways! I adored the idea of 2 men for one woman. What woman doesn’t? BUT I knew I wanted a happy-ever-after for Sienna and Cord Ryder. I knew these people. Saw them. Understood them. But to write them together in a seduction, culmination and declaration of love? Ah. Tough!

In a scene with only one man and one woman, I get the play. I know what hand is where, why and how to proceed. But with more than one partner, the challenge is all in the best writing to convey the mood, motivation of the characters and to drive the story where you need it to go.

Showing potential love from one of the men had me reeling with the edits. I could not allow the younger brother to become too involved emotionally, either. So when I saw that I had to divide the action and the motivation, I finally understood my story—and my characters soooooooooo much better!

Here is a tiny sample of Sienna, Cord and Tate together:

She began to jump up, afraid she wasn’t knowledgeable enough to handle two men at once. But she halted. How did a woman do that, anyway? And not die of ecstasy? The girl in her had wanted both of them at once. Did the woman?

Her pussy throbbed and she knew her answer was yes, oh yes, I want you both. Just like I always had. Any way you want me. In a small but determined voice, she laid ground rules for whatever came next. “But you have to know that whatever happens here my offer is the same as my real estate agent’s.”

“Fun first.” Tate inched closer, his tone all business but his gaze lush with desire as he removed her shoes. “Business later.”

Cord put his mouth to her ear and whispered, “We have to taste you.” And in her surprise, she dissolved in his hands as he lowered his demanding mouth on hers and probed her inner recesses with a spearing tongue. “Every inch of you.” He splayed his fingers in her hair, sent a few of her hairpins flying, then claimed her lips again while one hand covered her breast.

“Give me this,” Tate commanded and took her glass. “I want to show you where this margarita really tastes good.” And in a second, she felt his cold kiss on her kneecap while his cool fingers parted her legs and stroked up her thigh. He went a few inches more and threaded his fingers around the crotch of her thong. She bucked, trying hard to hang on to her sanity and not just come right now like a frustrated nun.

“Oh, Christ, bro,” Tate groaned as his knuckles grazed her slit and she moaned at his tantalizing nudge. “She’s sopping wet for us.”

“Open for him, honey,” Cord crooned to her, one hand undoing the buttons of her blouse. “I am going to kiss your pretty mouth again while he gets his fingers all juicy with you.”

She eagerly widened her legs but the damn tight skirt was such a hindrance that she whimpered in frustration. Cord slipped his palm into her bra and lifted out a swollen nipple. She arched into his caress. “You both have a reputation. Worse than in high school. Ah, god, that’s great, Cord.”

Cord rolled her nipple between two fingers. “Did you pebble like this for me in high school?”

“Yes, yes! Kiss me there!” she ordered, shocked but proud of her demand.

“Should have told us, baby,” Tate said as he delved beneath her thong and caught a few curls of her bush to gently tug at her heavy lips. “We would have done you.”

She squirmed at how Tate’s pull made her give off a succulent sound and damn, if she didn’t want to hear it again. On a shaky breath, she argued, “No, you would not.” I was your fat little next-door neighbor. “I was your tutor.”

“We could have been yours,” Cord murmured. “I would have loved to initiate you.”

“Oh, Cord.” I’d have given you anything you wanted.

Lia: HOT excerpt, Cerise!! I want to know more about Cord! Where can readers find your books?

Cerise: All of my books are on line. At EC, you can find MIA DOLCE and HER THREE-WAY MERGER, both contemporary romanticas. At you can find POWER POSITION and PARIS EXPOSE. Then, November 30, look for the debut of my historical romantica, the first of a trilogy, AT HER SERVICE!

Writer with Sizzle: Lynne Roberts

Please welcome Lynne Roberts! Lynne is giving away a free eBook copy of her sizzling book, First Date,  to one lucky commenter so be sure to give her some love.

Lia: What physical aspect does your heroine love most about your hero? Details, please!

Lynne: Oh, this is so tame but Jill would absolutely say she loves Bret’s slow, sexy smile. The rest of the package isn’t half bad though.

Lia: There is nothing sexier than a slow, sexy smile. What is the hottest scene you ever wrote?

Lynne: The hottest scene I’ve ever written is in the as of yet unnamed story of Caleb and Lily. I really can’t say much about it right now except it involves chocolate body paint, a shower head and a lot of steam.

Lia: Ooh, looking forward to that one! Where is the wildest place your characters have had sexual relations?

Lynne: A barn, stairway, public bathroom and a pond in the middle of the forest... You know, until my current work in progress, my characters haven’t had sex in a bed, or in a house for that matter. LOL. The wildest? Apart from the middle of the forest? ; ) I’d have to say the stairway.

Here’s an excerpt from First Date:

A brief flare of sanity intruded in her lust-clouded brain. Even with the storm, the barn wasn’t isolated. A maintenance man regularly checked on the place, or another realtor might even show the property.

Jill pulled away then almost lost her train of thought when Bret slid his finger under the white lace, stroking the rise of her breast above her nipple.

A surge of liquid further dampened her panties, and her legs tightened around his thighs.

She gasped. “Someone could come.”

“I sure as hell hope so,” Bret murmured.

Lia: Wow, I'm always amazed at how some writers can fit so much heat in so few words. Hot stuff! Has anything in your real life ever inspired a scene for your book?

Lynne: Sigh, I can’t believe I’m admitting this but here goes.

In my upcoming book, also from The Wilder Rose Press, the heroine is quite taken with the way the hero walks across a room.

Well, one day, I was at a red light and this man walked across the street. The way he moved was like poetry in motion. Yes, I know that’s cliché but it’s also true! He had this predatory roll of the hips that was both sexy and thrilling to watch. And then I realized he was walking to the high school, and no, he definitely wasn’t a teacher.

LOL. I think I actually closed my eyes. I felt like such a dirty old woman but it helped inspire my cougar story, AFTER HOURS.

Lia: Love it! Great story! Where can we find your sizzling books?

Lynne: You can find my books at The Wilder Rose Press

You can find me at

Or on Twitter: Lynne_Roberts.

Lia: Excellent. Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Lynne!

Writer with Sizzle: Amber Skyze

Please welcome Amber Skyze! Amber is giving away a free eBook copy of her latest release, Talk Dirty to Topaz, to one lucky commenter, so be sure to give her some love.

Lia: What is your favorite sexual position to write about?

Amber: Hmmm, any sexual position is my favorite. :-)Seriously, I enjoy writing the sex scenes. Seven years ago I couldn’t say that. I was this shy, timid woman afraid of anything new. Let’s just say I had an awakening in my early thirties. Sometimes it’s difficult to find something new to write, but that’s the joy of all the sex books out there. They’re full of wonderful ideas.

Lia: Thank goodness for awakenings. :-) Have you ever lived out any of your scenes?

Amber: Well don’t you have to live out the sex scenes to make sure they’re possible? ;-)

Lia: LOL! The hardships of research, right? Have your characters ever been caught having sex in public? How did that go?

Amber: In Body Shots, a new release coming in December from Ellora’s Cave, the heroine and hero get caught having sex on a pool table in a bar. I can’t tell you anymore because this book has suspense and I’d give away too many secrets.

Lia: Ooh, I like the sound of it already! What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Amber: My favorite thing about being a romance writer is being able to create characters in my own fantasy worlds. They can live out my dreams through my words. And of course they always have a happily-ever-after!

Lia: Where can readers find your sizzling books, Amber?

Amber: Readers can find my books at:

Lia: Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Amber!

Winner of Bewitching You is....

Writer with Sizzle: Viola Estrella

Please welcome Viola Estrella! Today is the official release day for her sizzling paranormal romance, Bewitching You. To celebrate, she’s going to be giving away a free eBook copy to one lucky commenter, so be sure to give her some love.

Lia: What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Viola: So many things. Falling in love with the story and with the characters. Having Aha! moments that draw me back into the story. Writing scenes that move me. That feeling of accomplishment when I write “The End.” And I’m slowly becoming a fan of revisions. So much depth and richness can be added when you go back and give it that extra oomph.

Lia: Have you ever cried or laughed out loud while writing a scene?

Viola: Yes! This book, in particular, had me laughing and crying in a few different scenes. Even the secondary characters go through an emotional roller coaster ride. Bewitching You was definitely a book of my heart. It’s always a good feeling when I’m journeying along with my characters, putting them through hell, then fighting with them, for them, to reach the happily ever after.

Lia: What was your hero’s lowest moment? His best moment?

Viola: My hero, Gray, has quite a few low moments in Bewitching You. He has a series of unfortunate events happen to him toward the beginning of the book that force him to look at his life, or his “life plan” a little differently. These events, hopefully, make the reader appreciate when his character transitions. There are certain spots where we can really see him changing. Here’s one of them.

Excerpt (the first kiss):

Wind gusted in and blew her hair off her shoulders. One piece stuck to her moist cheek so Gray swept it behind her ear.

“What are you doing?” she asked again, her eyes wide in what seemed like fear.

“Are you afraid of me, Sofia?” Had he been that awful to her?

“Of course not.” She blinked once. “That’s silly.”

Her tone wasn’t convincing. Carefully, Gray cupped her cheek. Her skin was soft, speckled lightly with freckles. Beautiful in a way he hadn’t noticed before.

A wary sigh heaved up her chest. Then she leaned into his hand and pulled in her bottom lip only to release it, wet and inviting.

Just one kiss.

Gray brushed his thumb over her lips, desperately wanting to erase every bad notion she had of him. What was it that made him want to be more to her than a cold-hearted jerk?

So much more.

Another gust of wind blew in, and she closed her eyes. Before she could open them again, Gray tilted her head up and molded his mouth to hers. She gasped slightly, but didn’t pull away. Her lips were supple and sweet to the taste. Like in his dreams, but better.

This was real.

He wasn’t going to wake up and find her gone. To make sure, he grasped her waist and held her close. Faint whimpers muffled against his lips. He almost drew back, but her fingertips running up his arms gave him permission to continue.

Eager for more, he slid his tongue into her mouth and felt her hips push up against his growing erection. She curved into him. Her hands glided over his shoulders and clasped onto his neck, nudging him down. Did she want him to take her? Now? Here?

He was a free to do whatever he wanted with whomever he wanted. For some reason, he only wanted to be here in this moment with this woman. From the way she was luring him toward the mattress, she desired more than just one kiss.

Gray wouldn’t refuse her. He wrapped one arm around her for support. The other arm braced against the bed as he lowered her, kissing her thoroughly all the while. He wouldn’t disappoint her like he had already.

This time, he wouldn’t give her anything less than his best.

Lia: Love it! Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Viola!

Viola: Thanks for having me on, Lia!

Lia: To find out more about Viola’s writing you can visit her at her cyberspace home:

Celebrating with a Writer with Sizzle: Leigha Phillips

Today I’m celebrating with a good friend of mine. Leigha Phillips is an aspiring writer of erotic romance, and she is very, very close to publication. Recently her book, Stolen Nights of Passion, won first place in Colorado Romance Writer’s Heart of the Rockies contest. Congratulations, Leigha!

Please help me welcome the talented Leigha Phillips!

Lia: What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Leigha: I get to create people with fantastic lives. And regardless of their struggles, I’m able to develop their ‘tools’ in order for them to overcome the difficulties that we often face in our everyday lives. And best of all, they get the happily ever after. Every time.

Lia: Great answer. What is your favorite sexual position to write about?

Leigha: Anything, (I use them all). My favorites though, are when the Alpha male takes control. A tug on the hair, bound hands, passionate and raw etc….

Lia: Yes, those scenes are very hot! Is there anything special you do to get “in the mood” before writing a sex scene?

Leigha: It was my first attempt at writing a M/M from Stolen Nights of Passion.


Assured his entrance would not cause his partner any discomfort, he placed the tip of his cock against his partner and teased the man by running his heavy cock up and down between his cheeks.

“My lord, please stop this torture.”

Drake eased into his partner’s warm, tight, cavern. “How does that feel”? His partner groaned and backed into him. His body language begged for more.

“Fuck me, my lord. Just fuck me.”

Little by little, Drake pulled out. His body savoring each torturous tug and pull on the head of his dick.

“Mmm… that feels so good, my lord.”

The man’s response fueled Drake’s passion. He gripped the servant’s waist in a tight hold. With his dominance declared, Drake plunged his thick, heavy cock back into the welcoming chasm with a driving force.

Lia: I had the pleasure of reading this story and I just fell in love with the characters. It was both sizzling and touching. I can’t wait to see it published. Thanks so much for being a Writer with Sizzle, Leigha!

I would love to have your vote!

Fatal Exposure is up for Best Book of the Week over at Whipped Cream Reviews, the erotic side of The Long and the Short of It. The voting is all day Saturday and Sunday, and I'd love to have your vote!

This is what the reviewer said:

"Is it wrong, as a reviewer, to discuss how turned on you became while reading a story? Most of the time, I try to discuss the fundamentals of the work: the writing, the character development, the premise, and the intrigue/suspense/mystery. And let me assure you, all of those necessary elements are present here. You’ll soar through this one and your heart will go through the wringer along the way. But the truth is, when I read the last word on that final page of Fatal Exposure, my first thought was, “Damn, now that was hot!”

Lia Slater has written a story that is fantastic, with all the sultry twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of our seat. A girl on the run from an abusive lover falls for the P.I. hired to find her and bring her back. She’s someone that needs to be loved and protected, and he’s a man that doesn’t want to feel anything for his target and/or become emotionally attached. It goes without saying that they’ll find what they lack in one another–the perpetual yin and yang. That alone is enough to garner interest and snare attention, and the conflict it creates is gut wrenching. But the moment Ava and Kade meet the sexual tension and chemistry between them oozes off the page.

This ain’t your Momma’s romance. The sex is raw, gritty, and so hot you’ll be forced to take a nice cold shower–or if you’re lucky, commandeer your partner–to take the edge off! In fact, Kade is one of the most memorable heroes I’ve had the pleasure to meet in a very long time. After I was done, I wondered where I might find a P.I. of my own." Fern, reviewer

Thank you!

Writer with Sizzle: Catherine Bybee

Please welcome the talented, Catherine Bybee!

Catherine: Thanks so much for having me, Lia. I’m so excited about the success of Kilt Worthy and I just love chatting about Logan and Jane.

Lia: Thanks for being here, Catherine! Have you ever cried or laughed out loud while writing a scene?

Catherine: I loved this question! Remember the movie Romancing the Stone? The opening scene our heroine is completing a romance novel and searching her apartment for Kleenex because her own book has her in tears. Happy tears, but big old fat tears nonetheless. This happens to me all the damn time. I laugh at my own jokes, get chocked up when emotions are high and yeah… get a bit wiggly in the seat when the sex is hot! Sometimes, when I finish a scene, I look back and say, “Damn, that’s good!” Like in this one from Kilt Worthy

“Do you really want to go, Jane? Wouldn’t you like more than the image on your camera to remember me by?”

How about your firstborn? Damn, where had that thought come from? It wasn’t like me to have so many naked thoughts running amok in my head, but Mr. Kilt was flippin’ gorgeous.

For the first time in my twenty-three years, I thought about how delightfully sinful it would be to share a stranger’s bed, if only for one night. I couldn’t believe I stood there contemplating a brief affair but, good God, had I ever been so sexually charged in all my life? The weight of my attraction for this man collided with my good sense.

“What do you have in mind, er…” Geez, Mr. Fantasy didn’t even have a name. “What was your name again?”

He moved closer. “My name is Logan, Logan MacLaren.”

I watched, surprised, as he lifted my arm and brought my very lucky hand to his lips. No one had ever kissed the back of my hand before, but I’d read about the experience in so many romance novels I thought I’d know how it would feel. I was wrong. Warm lips, gently pushing against my skin with a breath of hot air, made the world around me disappear.

My eyes locked with his, and his thumb stroked my wrist with subtle, suggestive circles. My nipples tightened in response, and my thong, tucked beneath tight denim, would need to be chucked into the hamper the minute I got home.

“You don’t want to rush off, do you, lass?”

I instantly shook my head, but words failed me. Distracted by my unexpected arousal, it was a wonder I could still stand.

One corner of his mouth lifted in triumph. “Well then, follow me.”

Lia: Um, yeah, I would definitely follow Mr. Kilt. :-) What a fun, clever excerpt! And hot too!! What is your favorite thing about being a romance writer?

Catherine: Being able to say I’m published is high on the list. LOL. I love setting my own schedule. I enjoy having a place to let all my fantasies go crazy. And I love shocking my family and friends.

Lia: Is there anything special you do to get “in the mood” before writing a sex scene?

Catherine: All I really need is a quiet house without kids running amok asking Mom for anything. If I’m interrupted while writing a sex scene it tends to be choppy and in desperate need of edits. I’m sorry if that answer disappoints some readers, mainly husbands… Mine would love it if I needed to have sex to write sex… sadly for him, I don’t. hehehe

Lia: I hear ya. A quiet house helps tremendously! Thanks for being a Writer with Sizzle, Catherine!

Catherine: Thanks again for having me, Lia.
