Why Blogs Scare Me by Carol Lynne


The Brick Yard_Carol Lynne_Blog Tour_mobile_finalI know a lot of fellow authors who blog almost daily, and I truly do envy them. They are so good at sharing their funny anecdotes about life. I, unfortunately, suck at blogging. I’ve tried several times, but I find I’m much better at writing stories about fictional characters. My problem is that when I blog, I get too far into my own head. It’s a messy place that no one really wants to go. I think my biggest issue is that I am my own worst enemy. I try to be uplifting, but I generally fail at it. I would consider myself someone with a good sense of humor, but just because you can laugh at life and things other people say doesn’t mean you feel it in your bones.

What If I Didn’t Write? by Natalie Dae

Natalie Dae_Master Stephen_Blog Tour_mobile_finalSometimes, I sit and wonder what my life would be like if I didn’t write. Of course, there was a time when I didn’t, so I kind of know. Between leaving school (where I did most of my writing) and having four children, going to work part time, I didn’t have the energy or enthusiasm to pick it back up again. I still kept a daily diary, though, but then one day, when my fourth child was two weeks old, something nudged me to write again. I think it was after a book I’d read had inspired me and it reignited the spark. My sister gave me a typewriter—I’m sure it was her, and thank God she did!—and I managed to scrabble enough money together to buy some paper. Times were hard back then, so buying that paper meant I gave up a couple of my meals.

Mustang MaddyContemporary Erotica

Grey Burkhardt is an expert at a lot of things—including keeping his feelings for Madison Evans in check. Sexy as sin and sweet as honey, she’s always revved his engine. But she’s his next door neighbor. No way is he going to muck up friendly neighborhood relations just to satisfy the heat simmering between them.

Madison has never seen anything sexier than the tricked out GT Mustang Grey has been keeping under wraps—other than the glint of danger and intrigue in his eyes when he offers her a ride. Now is her chance to act on the deep passion she’s harbored for him because this might be her one shot at taking control.

Kacey HammellExcerpt ©Kacey Hammell, 2014:

He cleared his throat and stepped closer. “You know, Mads, watching you fawn over my car, stroking her, makes me hot. I can hear every breath you take and sigh you release over her. It’s sexy as hell.”

She stood still as he moved in even closer, wedging her between him and the rear window. Thoughts of getting in the car fled as her heart raced. The hunger in his eyes called to her, her body craved it, wanted it.

She couldn’t deny herself any longer.

Leaning back against the car, she smirked. “I like appreciating great things. And to be honest, Mustangs turn me on. A lot.”

They said confession was good for the soul. Maddy was certain she’d just cleansed hers and there would be no going back.

Her palms flattened on the doors behind her. “The feel of the metal, and the pulse that emanates off the surface even when they’re not running…mmm. Everything in me comes alive whenever I see these muscled beauties.”

Grey lifted his arms, bracketing her in. “You’re one of the hottest chicks I know. No other woman has ever turned me on so much by talking about cars. You know, I’ve watched you—in a non-stalker way of course—for a long time now.”

Thrilled, Maddy’s heart skipped a beat. “What are you going to do with me now that I’m here?” What possessed her to ask, she had no idea, but the need and the desire in his gaze, aimed at her, called to all her sexual instincts. There was no way she could walk away now.

He aligned his body with hers, his eyes hooded as he gazed down at her. She surrendered to the headiness of this man, the pulsing rhythms of her body and waited with bated breath.

“I’m going to taste you…” Grey tilted his head to the side. All she could do was stare at his lips as they came closer. “…in any sexy spot you’ll let me.”

His mouth met hers. Maddy opened to him like a budding flower. Claimed. Possessed. Riotous emotions swirled through her and her mind cleared. This. This type of hunger and excitement she’d been missing with any other man was all she desired. Intense, seductive and thirst to let go and give into the headiest of sexuality.

He eased his tongue into her mouth, gliding along hers, exploring, tasting… Maddy never wanted to break free.

A low moan escaped the back of her throat. She encircled his shoulders, arms pulling him in to stand between her legs.

His hardness behind his shorts pressed against her. Gasping, she broke free from his mouth and laid her head back on the car. He kissed his way down her throat. Her pussy throbbed. Her juices flooded her panties. A shiver raced down her spine. Her fingers clenching against his pecs, Maddy trembled as the exquisite tortures of his lips worshipped her, and his hips rolled his cock against her. His teeth grazed her skin along her shoulders. She widened her stance. Grey moaned as he pushed into her, harder and more aggressive.

Laying his forehead on her shoulder, he breathed deep. “Damn you’re intoxicating.”

Maddy palmed the back of his head, holding him in place as his hips still moved and let sweet agony build. The friction of her panties and shorts against her clit were spectacular. But she needed more.

eBook Review: The Accidental Cougar by Sommer Marsden (@sommer_marsden)

The Accidental CougarI love me some Sommer Marsden. I haven’t yet read a book of hers that I haven’t liked, and this one is no exception. The Accidental Cougar tells the story of Abby, an early-forties woman who’s just come out of a twenty-plus-year marriage and is just learning how to cope with the huge change to her life.

When she meets Charlie, though, things are turned upside down. He’s gorgeous, funny and is attracted to her – but he’s only just older than her kids. Abby’s just as attracted to Charlie, but really struggles to get past the age gap between them. Can she manage it before Charlie gets fed up of being messed around and moves on?

This was a fantastic read. Told in Marsden’s typical engaging, true-to-life style, I was immediately pulled into the story as I learned about Abby and her background. She’s an incredibly likeable character, with flaws and insecurities, and I found myself seriously rooting for her throughout.

Charlie’s adorable, too. Cute, sexy, and fun, he’s so hot for Abby that you can almost feel it radiating off the page! I rooted for Charlie, too, finding myself hoping he’d get what he wanted. I’m not going to give any spoilers, however, so I’ll just round off this review by saying this is a down-to-earth, funny, sexy, smart book that any fan of erotic romance should have on their eReader.
