Cover Reveal: Reaper's Reward

Reaper's Reward--coming August 20th

Ethan Reaper is lucky at work but unlucky at love. He has particular tastes in the bedroom and can’t find a woman to satisfy him. A new job for his security firm puts him in the middle of the Caribbean in a fantasy resort where anything goes. But the woman who steals her way under his guard is more than she appears.

Jewel Marciella, a.k.a Jewel Riser, has no idea what her undercover assignment at Satyr’s Myst—an exclusive and very private resort—will entail. Her attraction to Ethan is her first surprise, her job as a sexual slave her second whopping shocker. 

Ethan and Jewel each have a job to do, and despite the hot chemistry between them, their relationship on the island is a fantasy at best. But murder and blackmail put them in dangerous positions, and they’ll have to decide if love is indeed a fantasy, or a choice which reaps its own rewards.

Cover Reveal! Virginia Nelson's Runaway Groom

Cover Reveal! Check out this stellar new beginning to Virginia Nelson's new series. Yes, that's right. You're seeing it first here! And a few other places, but this is the one that matters. LOL
From Virginia:  Runaway Groom is the first book in my Watkin’s Pond series and I’m super happy to have the cover to share with everyone. So, for the cover reveal… *drumroll please* 
Coming to Samhain January 2014
The groom is back in town.
Abigail lost her best friend years ago when he ditched her at the altar like a loaf of stale bread. Now he’s back and determined to do whatever he has to—even lie, apparently—to get under her skin. Although he makes her hormones rev to life in a way that no one has since he left, she is equally determined not to fall for his boy-next-door charm.
His bride-to-be is somewhat reluctant.
Braxton Dean was too young and stupid to know better when he walked away. Years of trying to fill the Abby-shaped hole in his heart have left him empty, and now he’s going to win back his girl—or get over her. But first he needs answers. Particularly why she never responded to any of his letters.
It might take a whole town to make this wedding happen.
With the help of their friends, the two battle it out. The army? An entire town of busybodies. The prize? Happily ever after.

Warning: Contains indignant old ladies, steamy sex (but not with indignant old ladies), seduction cake, and condom bouquets. Yes, we went there.

About the Author
 Virginia Nelson spends her days chasing three very active kids around.  When she is not doing this, or plotting taking over the world, she likes to write, play in the mud, drive far too fast and scream at inanimate objects.  She can often be found listening to music that is far too loud and typing her next fantastic tale of blood, sex and random acts of ineptitude.  Romance, in Ms. Nelson’s opinion, is not about riding off into the sunset on the back of a horse with the knight in shining armor— it is about riding the dragon.  If the knight can keep up… well, that is love.

Wednesday Words...On Thursday

Since I missed Wednesday Words--but really, how am I expected to compete with a Carrie Ann Ryan new release??--I figured I'd put them up today. So for your reading pleasure, a steamy excerpt from my new release, Tied and True. Note, this is definitely R-rated. Yeah, don't open at the office.

Lindsay woke on her back with her arms stretched above her head. It took her a moment to regain her bearings, and when she did, she panicked.
“Shit is right.” Jared Hunt towered over her, his jutting cock stiff and eager, his lips curled with humor, his eyes glowing with satisfaction. “I told you I wasn’t going to ask again.”
“Jared,” she cajoled, as she twisted her wrists, only to find them tied with her own equipment. Damn. That had been sloppy of her. She knew she should have tied him tighter, but she’d been determined not to cause him any undue pain. Idiot. “You know you deserved a bit of harmless payback for what you said about me to Frick and Frack at the office. Admit it.”
“I do,” he said easily, rubbing himself as he stared down at her.
Look away, please. Unable to break eye contact, she was completely ensnared by his hungry gaze. Blindfolded, he’d been more a fantasy than a person, just as he’d made her out to be in his discussion with Maclearn and Simmons. But now she couldn’t help seeing the real him. Her heart hammered with more than worry at his nearness. She was deeply in lust and scarily growing more and more drawn to the handsome devil, despite her inner plea to remember his callous words.
Damn her conscience. It refused to shut up. But everyone at the office really likes him. And he never had one bad word to say about anyone until you overheard him on Wednesday. He even took your rejections in stride. Lindsay’s heart beat faster.
“Do you know what I was thinking about when I was touching myself last night?” he asked, his voice throaty.
Lindsay licked her lips and cleared her throat before she could answer. “Wh-what?”
“I was thinking how gratifying it would be to come inside your slick heat. About how hard I could push into your wet pussy, how long I could make you come around me.”
Lindsay bit her lip to hold back a groan. Why did he have to be so sexy and so damn hot when he talked frankly like that? Her attention settled on the large hand covering his shaft, and she had an unquenchable urge to swallow him again.
“That’s right, baby. You want this in your mouth, don’t you?”
She said nothing, a little embarrassed to be so obvious. And she knew she and Jared had gone far beyond embarrassed hours ago.
“Tell me, Lindsay. Tell me you want to suck my cock, to swallow my come. All of it.”
She shifted in sexual frustration, feeling deliciously wet and strangely uninhibited under his gaze. “I want you, Jared.” She stared into his light green eyes. “I want to feel you shudder when you come, to taste you as you slide down my throat, so creamy and sweet.”
He increased the friction on his cock, and she wondered if he meant to mark her with his seed. The thought aroused her further.
“I’m going to do to you what you’ve been doing to me since I met you,” he answered silkily, showing another side to the charming, affable Jared Hunt. This man seemed dangerous, controlling, and he thrilled her to the quick. “But first I need a measure of control, one you’re going to provide.”
He knelt on the bed, moving up her body to straddle her neck, his cock imposing and large before her. “Lick me,” he growled. “Suck my balls, my cock. Make me want to fuck that pretty mouth until I come.”
Lindsay was on fire. She’d always wanted to try being dominated, not the heavy stuff, but a little play like this. Now she couldn’t believe what she’d been missing. She felt so aroused. His mere words and nearness made her want to come. Had he felt the same when she’d had him tied up and at her mercy?
Staring up at his lust-glazed expression, Lindsay opened her mouth and stroked him with her tongue. He moved with her, and she shivered at the touch of his balls on her cheek and began licking and sucking the velvety sac with a generosity that made him moan out loud. Jared tilted his pelvis and put the tip of himself in her mouth, as if waiting to see what she would do.
She smiled, then sobered as she stared at his beautiful shaft. After licking her lips, she opened wider. He pushed forward, cursing when she urged him deeper. Clutching the headboard with an iron grip, Jared began thrusting inside her mouth, slowly but surely, his girth growing until she had no thought for anything other than swallowing him.
Thick, hot flesh filled her, made her breathless with desire. She tasted salty sweetness and knew his climax neared.
“Fuck, Lindsay. You’re so good.” He groaned, pumping faster. “I’m coming.”
He shot into her mouth, and she greedily swallowed him, squirming on the bed for the release she desperately needed. Watching him come was a heady stimulant, one that stoked her desire to feel the same, free of any constraint.
“Don’t worry, baby.” Jared withdrew and lay over her, blanketing her with his body. He was still semi-hard, moisture beading at his tip as he rubbed it over her middle. “I’m going to give you exactly what you’ve given me. Pleasure until you want to die from it.”

Another New Release

But this time, my guest is Carrie Ann Ryan. Her new release came out yesterday, Dreams of Ivory. The Holiday, Montana series is magical. Literally! Take a look...

Jackson Cooper hates magic. Even though his brothers are falling prey to the seductive draw of the paranormal world, Jackson wants nothing to do with it.  He also wants nothing to do with marriage, babies, and all that comes with it. He's content with being the stoic, but quiet Uncle Jacks. But when a woman from his past, one he's been dodging for years, comes back to town, Jackson might have to reevaluate his plans.

Honor Bridges is the tooth fairy. Well, not the tooth fairy, but at least one of them. For the past eight years she's been on her own, hiding from what she truly wants. Now she's back in Holiday and ready to take over her duties...as well as deal with Jackson once and for all. But there's another player in town who isn't happy with the decisions she made all those years ago and Jackson might be the one who takes the brunt of that anger.

Warning: Contains a wickedly spicy tooth fairy--complete with sparkly wings, the most tortured of all the Cooper brothers in all his broodiness, and dreams that are sure to make you never want to wake up in this final Cooper Brother’s installment of the Holiday, Montana series.

New Release--TIED AND TRUE

releases today!!

Lindsay Riordan has had it with the rumors and innuendo that dog her professional steps. Being born a blond should not automatically designate her the office bimbo. So when she overhears the sexy new office wunderkind spouting untruths about her, she decides on some payback. 

Jared Hunter is a man on a mission, but his mission is proving to be a lot harder to complete than he'd expected. He couldn't have anticipated that in the course of finding the truth, he'd wake up to find himself tied naked and spread-eagled on his bed, and that the person behind his restraint would be none other than the woman he's been lusting after since he first saw her. A woman who's got vengeance on the brain. What's a guy to do when he's fit to be tied?  

Note: this title has been previously released but has been reedited and revised
It's the first in the Satyr's Myst series

Way Beyond Late--A Scourge of Edits

So I've been very late in posting. Normally I try to share every day or every other day. But since working on my new website in between editing, writing, and more editing, I have been bone tired and too busy to blog.

My excuse is that thus far in late June/July, I have done the following:

  • Edits for Prey & Prejudice (twice) 
  • Written Making the Grade 
  • Edits for When the Starrs Align (three times)
  • Research for my McCauley brothers in Seattle
  • Rewrites and revisions for Tied and True
  • Formatting for Tied and True

However, that said, it's Monday. Time for coffee, time for more editing (oh joy) and time to let you know I have a new release coming out tomorrow. Woo hoo!

Yes, this book will see the light of day tomorrow. It should be at Amazon and B&N, All Romance Ebooks, and God willing, Kobo. In other news, my schedule for the rest of this month looks promising (said tongue-in-cheek):

  • Pre-edits turned in to Fated Desires for Beasts of Burden. Real edits coming up.Yea.
  • Big Book #3 edits ongoing, book due to editor August 1st
  • Edits on Making the Grade--book due to editor August 15th
  • Big Book #1 extensive edits (from editor) due back to editor August 6th
  • Galley edits for Samhain print book due July 31st--asked for extension (was not anticipating these)
  • Edits on Prey & Prejudice hopefully not coming back to me until August
  • Perhaps time to start Big Book #4...maybe
And that's just for July. LOL Yes, my brain is about to explode. Thanks for asking. Oh, and I'm addicted to fleshing out my new website. Atomic Cherry Design Studio rocks, just sayin'. The site is close, but not yet ready for the unveiling. But we're getting there...

So yes, that's all why I've been late blogging recently. Cut me some slack. I mean, it's Monday.
