Make Mine a Double (Yeah, baby, yeah!)

Rookery Cove Aphrodisiacs:
Make Mine a Double

Brim and Stone are dragons who were hatched on the island nearly a hundred years ago. Now, they live in the dark caverns below the factory, guarding the Heart, which is the very essence of Rookery Cove. As their first-century birthday approaches, Brim and Stone are experiencing the quickening. They desperately need a female to sexually facilitate their joining so they can complete their permanent transition.

Thanks to her overprotective male relations, Charlotte "Charli" Maguire's current love life is non-existent. She yearns to fulfill her fantasy: Hot sex with two men. Hah. She might as well wish to visit the moon. Then Charli wins a contest sponsored by Rookery Cove Aphrodisiacs: An all expense-paid vacation to Halifax, a tour of the factory, and $500 worth of sex aids.

During the tour, the guide takes her to the "fantasy room." Charli finds herself the sensual participant in a threesome with two gorgeous men. Forget the sex toys. Forget the nearest exit. These two hunks are better than any prize!

EXCERPT

"The room I'm taking you to is very special. In fact, we like to think of it as the place where your deepest, darkest fantasy can come true."

With Charli's heart beating a sudden, rapid tattoo, she followed Elwyn through the dimly lit hallway. At some point the concrete floor gave away to the grit and bumps of natural stone. They walked up a short set of stairs carved into stone and through an arched doorway.  

Holy canole! The room was all black marble; the unrelenting dark was softened only by the recessed lighting in the ceiling. Charli noticed the huge, circular bed on the right. The glossy shine of black silk sheets caught her gaze. A dozen black pillows in all shapes and sizes filled the top part of the bed.  

"What's your fantasy?" asked Elwyn.

"Do I have to tell you?" She wandered away the magnificent room, her stomach squeezing in excitement. "This is an interesting place, all right."

"If you sit on the bed and make your wish," he said, walking to it and patting the covers, "you might get exactly what you want."

"So, this is a magic room? Oh, c'mon." Still her pulse raced at the very possibility. Maybe they had researched her and found out she wanted two men to make love to her. Yeah. God. What if they had? What if part of her prize package was trying out Rookery Cover's sex-tastic room o' fun? Charli gazed at the bed. Really, she should be thinking more clearly about this situation.

She was caught between doing the right (and boring) action or taking the risk -- the risk that Elwyn wasn't teasing her or that she wasn't crazy.

"So, if I sit in this room and think about my favorite sexual fantasy… I'll get it?" Her gaze flicked to his. "That's quite a leap of faith."

"That's the thing about faith," he said. "You always have to jump for it."

A couple of wonderful reviews of Ropacabana!


I received a couple of truly wonderful reviews for Ropacabana and I wanted to share. My sincerest thanks to both reviewers.


"Isabella Jordan has created an erotic, emotional and romantic tale that I couldn't put down. Salma is a famous dancer who has become cynical and jaded resulting from the industry she is in. While Tony is an honest, naive and old fashion guy who is attracted to Salma not Salome. Their attraction is put to the test when Salome and Tony are instructed to perform for one the Salome's rich admirers. This exposes the ugly side of Salma's profession, yet Tony only sees Salma's inner beauty and compassionate persona. I found Salma and Tony's relationship quite intense enforcing the fact that they are from two different worlds yet their connection draws them to each other. I really liked Tony's characteristic and untainted persona and I can see why Salma's attracted to him. Call me kinky but I highly enjoyed the "private showings" that Salma and Tony performs which includes BDSM, oral and anal stimulation and ménage. Oh my, I needed some ice as I read these scenes. My only complaint is that this story had to end and I really didn't want to go back to the normal world just yet. I look forward to many more stories from Ms. Jordan!" - 5 Stars, Heat Level: O, Tallyn Porter, JERR


"Ropacabana is a great novella about a man loving a woman for who she is, not for the illusion of who she is. You will love Isabella Jordan's ability to fuse both scorching, kinky love scenes with tender moments into a marvelous story you won't be able to put down. Jordan has created one luscious Latina heroine and a strong but sensitive hero. After getting to know Salome, you will sympathize with her and understand why she has to put up the defenses she does. Luckily, Tony is the one man that can light her fire - and warm her heart. Viva Los Regalos: Ropacabana is a sweet and spicy must-read!" - Mandy Briggs, Paranormal Romance

Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

Is it wrong of me to title my post after a very famous song from a very famous children's movie on an Erotic Romance publisher blog? Probably. But, dammit, I just don't care. Why?

BECAUSE TOMORROW Tri Me IS OUT!!!

Woo-to-the-oot!

And how about a little 70's porn theme music? Bow, chick, bow bow.... You know what I'm talkin' bout baby... <- Said in my deepest Barry White-esque voice. So, yeah, I'm just bouncing around, waiting for the release... counting down the hours and minutes... Here's the blurb: Eric D’Amore is back and still struggling to pair Extraordinaries and Normals together. Good thing his next trio already shares a bit of history, otherwise his job would be nearly impossible.

Two men, one woman and some yummy man loving… What more could a woman ask for?

Lara Kinley is a schoolteacher by day and a waitress at TJ’s, the local Animali Extraordinary bar, by night. Everyone has to make sacrifices to get what they want, but will Lara’s sacrifices result in her dreams coming true and her wildest fantasies fulfilled?

Theo and Jackson are partners in love and life, but both of them feel something is missing. It takes the prodding of Eric D’Amore and an order from the Office of Kink and Karma for them to admit their desire for a woman in their lives to each other. Once they understand and accept the other’s needs, they embark on seducing and capturing Lara as their own. But can she open her heart to these two men and allow their love for her to solve all her problems?

And now (drum roll please....) a sneak peak at the opening chapter, just for ya'll:

****
A slim, cool hand slid around Eric’s cock, pulling him awake with its slow, even strokes. His voice, gravely from sleep, called out the owner’s name. “Melani.”

She melded to him, pressing her breasts into his side, resting her head on his shoulder as her fingers worked their magic. Propping his arms behind his head, he relaxed under her touch. Sure, they’d decided to end their relationship for their own reasons, but damn, she knew which places to stroke.

“Eric, I’ve missed you.”

Her voice, a seductive purr, shot straight to his cock. She began snaking down his abdomen, skin slithering against skin, but he grabbed her shoulders, stopping her descent. “Not this time, Lani. We’ll both get our pleasure.”

Smiling and with a grace born of her years spent dancing, she climbed atop him, settling her moist, hot core over his cock. Her lithe, lean form, with its trim hips and deeply tanned skin, rose above him. Her dark brown hair cascaded around her shoulders in large curls.

Sliding his hands along her outer thighs, he squeezed and kneaded the firm flesh. Melani kept herself fit and trim; tight muscle covered every inch of her from head to toe and not a bit of fat or flab could be seen. She truly was the ideal woman for anyone but him. But here she was, in his house and in his bed, ready and willing.

Melani’s bare pussy slid along his cock, spreading her cream all over him as she moved. The warm, wet heat teased him, but he needed more. Grasping her hips, he controlled her motions. Back and forth, back and forth, over and over he moved her as he desired. She moaned her appreciation of his control. Each time the head of his cock slid near her opening, he barely resisted the urge to plunge into her depths. Each time he nudged her clit, she cried out in pleasure.

Melani pressed her hips down on his, slowing his movements, but increasing the friction. Having had enough of teasing her, he raised her hips up, poising his cock at her entrance and pressing into her slightly.

“Yes, oh God, yes!”

In one forceful thrust, Eric embedded his cock deep within Melani’s heat until her smooth, cream-slicked skin pressed against his groin. They lay joined, their breathing heavy as seconds ticked by, Eric giving her pussy a chance to adjust to his size. It had been a long time since they’d fucked.

****
Yeah, I'm a tease, but you love me anyway, right? Right?
Ce ;)
PS. Wanna get 5% off your order... Lean closer and I'll tell ya how. We gotta keep this on the down low though cause I don't want "the powers that be" catching wind of this and, well, you don't want to know what will happen. Here's a coupon code good for the entire week... 07OCT14 Just don't tell'em where you got it, okay?

Swan Song & M Strikes Again!

Okay, for those of you not signed up for the Changeling Press readers loop... get there, seriously. M (owner of Changeling) is losing her mind and going crazy with discount codes. Marketing is going to kick her rear, but in the mean time...


Marie Treanor has a new Hot Flash out titled Swan Song:

When you find yourself confiding in a swan, you know you’re in trouble. When the swan talks back, madness clearly beckons. Throw in a fool of a fiancé about to be dumped, a Russian gangster, and a lustful ballet dancer with tights to die for, and the night becomes strangely magical…

In honor of Marie's sexy swan, M threw out a new coupon code. Here's what she sent out to the loops:


I was poking around in the Coming Soon folder for something to get into and found the most wonderful surprise -- a gorgeous hunk of a -- SWAN! Swan shape shifters?? OK. Had to read it. Let me tell you, Marie Treanor is one wickedly twisted woman. Naturally I had to share. Man, I love my job.


New Hot Flash now available: Swan Song by Marie Treanor $2.99

And just for all you insomniacs up keeping me company, I made a new discount code:
Swan Song -- 5% off any one order, no matter how many books you stuff in the cart. Good till the marketing staff catches me playing with their codes again...



Has she lost her mind? Probably. We've corrupted her with all of our off-the-wall ideas chock full of sex and she's lost what little sanity she had left. Take advantage of it while you can!

Don't Panic

UPDATE:

Okay, looks like everything is back to 'normal', LOL. Thankfully, this was a quick fix, but be aware they are still working on cleaning up the backlog of mail in their systems. Once that's done, according to their blog, everything will be smooth sailing.


Emma Ray, back to being naughty!

Yes, we know that the Changeling Press reader's loop has suddenly disappeared off the Yahoo map. As far as we know, this is a temporary problem, and everything should be back to rights soon.

Until then, be naughty and love it! ROFL, doesn't that sound like a great idea?

What Kind of Sexy Girl Are You?

I think readers and authors of erotic romance are naturally sexy. What kind of sexy girl are you?

Apparently, I'm:




You Are Sensual Sexy



You exude a luxurious sensuality in your everyday life

Turning heads everywhere you go, it's all about your sexy attitude.

You're naturally hot - gorgeous in both sweats and stilettos.

Your biggest problem is that your ultra sexy self sometimes scares men away.

Winner of Oh Brother! Recipe Contest

The WINNER of this week's blog recipe contest is CATHY. Please email me at michelebardsley @ yahoo.com (no spaces). You've won a FREE E-BOOK OF YOUR CHOICE. Here is Cathy's winning recipe:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
One of my favorite summer time dinners is Chicken Piccata. It is easy and fast and delicious served over spaghetti.

8-10 pieces of chicken tenders (defrosted)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups all purpose flour, for dredging
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup of white wine
1/4 cup brined capers, rinsed
1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 lb cooked spaghetti noodles

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.

In a large 10 or 12-inch skillet over medium high heat, melt 4 tablespoons of butter with 4 tablespoons olive oil. When butter and oil start to sizzle, add chicken and cook for 3 minutes. When chicken is browned, flip and cook other side for 3 minutes. (Adjust time for really thin chicken pieces)

Remove pan from heat and move chicken to a plate.

Reduce heat to medium low and add the lemon juice, stock, wine and capers. Return to stove and bring to boil, scraping up brown bits from the pan for extra flavor. Check for seasoning. Return all the chicken to the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove chicken to platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter to sauce and whisk vigorously. Pour sauce over chicken and cooked spaghetti noodles and garnish with parsley.

The Deen Brothers' BBQ Chicken
Makes 3 to 4 servings

Tennessee barbecue usually means pork: pork shoulder, ribs, or the whole hog. But where we come from, it means a great sauce, like this one, and good old chicken, the mainstay of our family business.

Ingredients:
1 cup ketchup
¼ cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
½ teaspoon dry mustard powder
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
One 3½ pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375° F or prepare a grill (brush the grill grate lightly with oil).

2. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except the chicken. Reserve 1/3 cup of the barbecue sauce; set aside. Add the chicken to the remaining sauce in the bowl, turning to coat.

3. Arrange the coated chicken in a roasting pan or on the grill. Cook (covered, if grilling) for 40 to 45 minutes or until cooked through, basting with the reserved 1/3 cup sauce after 20 minutes.

Cat's news and a contest

The August issue of my newsletter is now online! I've also done a teensy bit of redesigning on the website (call it a work in progress): let me know what you think! Some pages might need to be refreshed before they load correctly--don't ask me why, it's just the way they go. A quick check on the News or Contest pages should tell you if it's loaded right: News will be headed August, and Contest will have the Drive Me Daisy details.

While you're on the Contest page, don't forget to enter to win a download of Drive Me Daisy.

Adam was the first man Daisy ever saw. When the faeries sent her back to the mortal realm, his werewolf pack took her in. Adam was the first man to make love to her, and the first to break her heart. Now, fifteen years later, Adam's back, and he needs Daisy: in his work, in his life, and in his bed.

But fifteen years can change a person, and now Daisy's not so sure she can forgive Adam for what happened all that time ago. Plus, there's the little matter of the secret she's been keeping since she last saw him...

Dakota vamps, Michele blinks. Note to photog Kati: Take TWO pictures, daughter o' mine.

We popped in to the RWA Convention in Dallas, Texas a few times, but mostly we (Me, Kati, Terri Lugo, Michelle Hoppe) stayed at Dakota's house and gabbed until the wee hours of the morning. I'm still catching up on sleep.

The sleek glide of vinyl over hairless flesh brought a smile to Pru’s lips. God, it felt good to dress the way she wanted. After ten years in training with the Relic Group, putting on a potato sack would feel good, as long as she chose it.

Pru pulled the zipper of her thigh high boot up before stomping both shoes against the floor and tugging at their tops. Legs properly ensconced, she turned around to look at herself in the mirror.

“Very nice.”

With one last glance, Pru left her apartment, slapping her palm against the identpad to lock the door. As she made her way to the parking garage, she couldn’t help but smile again. She worked at the hottest BDSM club in the country, Ovelia. Situated on the outskirts of downtown Atlanta, the club drew customers not just from the city, or the state, but also from all over the world.

Her work at Ovelia paid very well, and as she approached her prize possession, she couldn’t help but purr with satisfaction. The hovercycle was unbelievably expensive, but worth every dime.

She slid her body onto the low-slung vehicle, starting the antigrav field and lifting off in the same smooth motion. The ride to her job took less than ten minutes, but it was ten minutes spent in complete joy. She pulled into the parking garage and powered down the cycle. With one last look, she made her way to the employee entrance.

Pru waved to Bertie, the lupercan bouncer, on her way in. He was wolfed-out, nothing odd about that, but the bright pink collar was new.

“Nice accessory, Bertie.” She smiled when he preened at her comment.

“Thanks, Pru. I wanted to try something different.”

“It looks good. What’s George think?”

The heavily muscled, hair-covered lupercan crossed his arms. “He likes me in pink.”

Pru laughed as she made her way through the steadily filling club toward her personal room. She knew Bertie liked pink too. She entered her well-appointed room, sighing contentedly at the clean, simple lines of the space. Antonio decorated with panache, careful to balance ambiance with functionality.

A simple queen-sized bed stood alone on the back wall. There was a small sitting area in front of a replica of a medieval rack. Pru didn’t use the device very often, but she found the simplicity of the torturous contraption appealing. The wall nearest the door held chains, the full complement of her whip collection, as well as miscellaneous paraphernalia she used to ply her trade.

She trailed her fingers over the whips, the supple leather cool and smooth beneath her hand. Her blood warmed as she thought about the night to come. Antonio no doubt had her booked. If this were any other job, she might have been grumbling. Instead, her clit swelled between her legs and her breasts grew heavy.

She turned to the bed, mussing the covers a bit for effect. It was time for her to check in with Antonio and get her schedule for the night. Before she left the room, she opened up the camouflaged safe and put away her things. She shifted a pair of furred cuffs out of the way to make room for her handbag and a thought tickled her senses.

“Another set of manacles might come in handy.” With a wicked grin, she shut the safe. A small control pad rested on her lingerie dresser. With a little giggle, she punched a few numbers on the remote. The wall panel between her whips and one set of chains recessed and rotated before sliding back into place with another set of cuffs and chains anchored to it.

She dropped the controller on the bed and headed out into the club. Time to go to work.

RRT Erotic Reviews

I had to share the two newest reviews for my Pret Ops series! Sinclair Reid at Romance Reviews Today's erotic sister wrote excellent reviews and I'm very, very appreciative of her hard work!

Here's what she said:

"FAMILIAR is the first book in Emma Ray Garrett's Pret Ops series and it's extremely hot…a thrilling and exciting erotic romance!"

"
Fascinating! WARWOLF is enticing and scintillating… it is a delightful read with captivating characters, a riveting storyline, and mind-blowing sex all rolled up into one nice, neat package."

Sinclair's reviews made my day!

Great reviews for Diary of a Demon Hunter 4


4 Stars! O Rating! "Raphael is a half-demon used to getting his way without asking and he isn’t sure what to do with Maggie, outside of phenomenal sex, now that he has her. Maggie and Raphael will make a reader’s toes curl. There is so much raw passion and sensuality rolling off of the half-demon, and she is just as aggressive, so together they have fantabulous sex scenes. They are also funny and witty."
--Brigit Aine, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

4 Blue Ribbons! "DOUBLY DYING will knock your socks off. This was yet another great installment in the Diary of a Demon Hunter saga. For those of you, who haven't read these books, start at the beginning. There's so much happening, you don't want to miss any of the scorching action ... The sex scenes were phenomenal. They definitely left me breathless."
-- Amanda Haffery, Romance Junkies

5 Lips! "DOUBLY DYING starts out with one of the sexiest and erotic scenes that I've read in quite a while. I have been anxiously awaiting this addition to the Diary of a Demon Hunter series and Michele Bardsley didn't disappoint! Rafe is one of the more fantastic males that I've ever had the pleasure to be introduced to and Maggie is definitely a strong kick-ass woman. Combined, they balance each other perfectly."
-- Kerin, Two Lips Reviews

IMPORTANT--Rat Poison Found In Pet Food, FDA Recall Information



I can't imagine there are many pet owners who haven't heard about this yet, but it's still worth reposting this information from the FDA regarding the rat poison contamination of many brands of canned or "wet" pet food. As anyone who knows me will attest, I adore my pets and am so thankful right now that they don't eat wet food! But for the sake of all the pets that do eat it, I'm reposting this.

Love your furbabies--read the information and CHECK THAT FOOD!



(Copied from the FDA website, all rights reserved by copyright holder)
Recall of Pet Foods Manufactured by Menu Foods, Inc.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been informed that Menu Foods, Inc., a private-label pet food manufacturer based in Streetsville, Ontario, Canada, is recalling all its "cuts and gravy" style dog and cat food produced at its facility in Emporia, Kansas between December 3, 2006 and March 6, 2007. The products are sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The recall was prompted by consumer complaints received by the manufacturer and by tasting trials conducted by the manufacturer. There has been a small number of reported instances of cats and dogs in the United States that developed kidney failure after eating the affected product. To date, Menu Foods, Inc. has reported 14 animal deaths to the FDA. Nine cats died during routine taste trials conducted by the company. Consumers reported deaths of four cats and one dog. The firm has undertaken extensive testing of the pet food products in question, but to date has been unable to find the source of the problem.

The products are packaged in cans and pouches under numerous brand names and are marketed nationwide by many pet food retailers including Ahold USA Inc., Kroger Company, Safeway, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., PetSmart, Inc., and Pet Valu, Inc.

Menu Foods, Inc. has identified the potentially contaminated products on the Internet at www.menufoods.com/recall. Consumers who have any of these products should immediately stop feeding them to their pets. Dogs or cats who have consumed the suspect feed and show signs of kidney failure (such as loss of appetite, lethargy and vomiting) should consult with their veterinarian. Menu Foods, Inc. is notifying retailers by telephone and mail and is arranging for the return of all recalled products.

FDA is conducting an investigation and working with Menu Foods, Inc. to ensure the effectiveness of the recall. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-866-895-2708. Consumers who wish to report adverse actions or other problems can go to http://www.fda.gov/opacom/backgrounders/complain.html to contact the FDA complaint coordinator in their state.

However, this information from the FDA website is just a little bit old--today's news stories bear that out. This is from Yahoo News, directly copied, all rights reserved by copyright holder:

"ALBANY, N.Y. - Rat poison was found in the pet food suspected of causing kidney failure that killed at least 16 cats and dogs, but scientists still don't know how it got there, state officials said Friday.

The toxin was identified as aminopterin, which is used to kill rats in some countries, state Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker said."

And just so no one has to look too hard to know what brands are included:

Final Installment of Diary of a Demon Hunter...


The last installment in the Diary of a Demon Hunter series is now available from Changeling Press! Woo-hoo!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Maggie Mortis goes after the demon king Abatu -- who plans to give "hell on Earth" a whole new definition. Maggie will risk everything to entrap the demon -- even the love of Raphael. It will be a battle that will either save her soul... or condemn it.

Publisher's Note: This title is part of a serial -- books which share a universe and are meant to be read in order.

EXCERPT (ADULT)
“This one is nice,” said Raphael. He held up the magazine. The dress looked like something Cinderella would wear to the ball, all big and fluffy and diamond-speckled.

“You like that gown?” she asked as she took off her weapons.

“Don’t you?”

Maggie took off her boots then wiggled out of her demon-hunting suit. Still in her black lace bra and panties, she crawled onto the bed and snuggled next to Rafe. As she stroked the hard muscles of his stomach, she looked at the picture again then at her fiancé. “If you like that frou-frou shit I guess I could wear it.”

Rafe’s blue eyes twinkled. “You must love me, Maggie, if you would even think about showing up to our wedding dressed in frou-frou shit.”

She lightly punched his shoulder. Then, feeling vulnerable and guilty and in love, she sat up and cupped his face. “I would do anything for you.”

His eyes went dark and he leaned forward to capture her lips. Electric heat raced through her, and she slid onto his lap. Pressing her sex against the lengthening bulge in his jeans, Maggie broke their kiss long enough to unclip her bra and throw it to the floor.

Rafe cupped her breasts, bringing one succulent peak to his mouth. He tugged the nipple between his teeth, flicking the aching tip with his tongue. Maggie moaned, her hands drifting down to stroke at the juncture where her pussy met his jean-clad hard-on.

Rafe seemed to be in a lazy lovemaking mood, which suited Maggie just fine. She wanted to relish every moment in case… well, in case nothing. He would forgive her. He would understand her reasons. Maybe he’d be pissed off for a while, but he wouldn’t leave her. And even if he did -- her breath caught in her throat—then he would be alive. That was the important thing. If he was walking around and breathing, wasn’t that worth sacrificing his trust?

I would do anything for you, Raphael.

Her heart kicked up a frantic beat, caught between the unfurling lust heating her inside out and the adrenaline-spiked guilt threatening to cool her ardor.

Goddamn it. As despair jabbed her, she pushed aside all her worries and focused on Rafe and on how he made her feel.

Right now, there would be only love.

She would think about all the rest tomorrow.

Winner of an Ecataromance Reviewers' Choice Award!





Okay, I'm doing a little tooting of my own horn. LOL. My book, The Beast 4: Soul Tripping has won an Ecataromance Reviewers' Choice award for best ebook of 2006!! I feel honored and elated.


Here is what the reviewer, Keely Skillman, had to say: "5 Stars! Ms. George delivers her usual dose of volcanic love scenes worthy of a re-read or four. This one definitely puts to rest any doubts about whether or not a series can start with an explosive bang and maintain the energy level and drive through multiple books."
-- Keely Skillman, eCataRomance Sensual Reviews

Hugs and thanks for indulging me!

Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Things about Cat Marsters


1. I've never done one of these before so I had to go and visit the Thursday Thirteen site to figure out what the hell it was about.

2. In nine days it will be my birthday. On Monday it will be my cousin's birthday, and she's nine years younger than me.

3. I have a new book out today that I wasn't expecting until Friday!



4. I think smock dresses make people look pregnant.

5. I still wish my hair was curly, even though I know it's way more work than I could ever be prepared to do.

6. I haven't brushed my hair for about three years, not counting ruby weddings or funerals.

7. There's a black and white cat who thinks he lives in our house, even though someone else has put a collar on him. We named him Jess after Postman Pat's cat.

8. I eat chocolate muffins for breakfast. They're low fat and used to be really nice, but recently they changed the recipe so they're not. Now I'm wondering how many Weight Watchers points there are in the proper ones.

9. I first went to Center Parcs when I was about three and have never lost the sense of childish wonder I had then. In fact, I'm going back next week all by myself.

10. I have never read Pride and Prejudice. Or any book by Jane Austen. Does this mean I'm not allowed to be a romantic novelist any more?

11. My favourite song in the whole world is Fall At Your Feet by Crowded House, and has been since I was about fourteen.

12. I still can't remember which button makes a space, which makes punctuation, and which cycles through options when I'm writing a text message, even though I've had my phone nearly a year.

13. Even though I got a B in maths I never actually learned my times tables.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Candy For Valentine

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Here's a calorie-free treat...



Candy For Valentine
By Michele Bardsley

EXCERPT
According the paper in his hand, Michael had been booked into Room 432. Steven and Eve had made all arrangements and Eve had promised him an "awesome surprise."

The stupid key card didn't work. Wasn't that typical? He used some vamp mojo on the door and it clicked open. As he entered the room, he immediately smelled a human female. Her sexual scent was strong and invoked an immediate reaction. Dropping everything, he hurried into the main part of the room.

The gorgeous brunette sat on the bed, dressed in nothing but bra, panties, cuffs, and gag. Woo-hoo! He was mightily impressed by this surprise.

"You are way more than awesome," he said.

Her brown eyes looked glazed and wild. Oh, baby. She was different from his usual donors. Maybe Steven and Eve had realized he needed to change it up. He was a rarity in a world filled with rarities--a vampire who could only feed when engaged in a sexual act. As young as he was in the vampire world (only 40 years undead), he had more power than vampires who'd been around for a thousand years.

He'd stopped having relationships more than twenty years ago; no woman he'd met had been able to keep up with his need for blood and for sex. These days, he hired call girls who could give him what he needed. He never used the same woman twice, he paid her well, and he wiped her memory.

"God, you're beautiful," he said as he kicked off his Vans and shucked his jeans and boxers. He took off his T-shirt and stood before her naked, his cock already primed. "Let's make the first time last a little while."

She shook her head. looking desperate. Frowning, he leaned forward to cup her mound and found her panties soaked. "Playing ahead of time?" His frown flipped to a smile. "Okay." He could hold off on feeding for now. "If you want me, lay face down on the bed, and show me your ass."

Romans with teeth

I'd like to introduce you to someone. He's big, he's strong, he's very sexy, and he has fangs. His name is Rafael, and he's a Master vampire. He's been alive fifteen hundred years, has killed and created, watched empires rise and fall, and taken countless women--and men--to his bed.

Unfortunately, he has a serious impulse control problem.

Being a vampire, this leads to a few unfortunate consequences. Like with Paige. Paige is smart, modern, and beautiful, and also unfortunately dead, since Rafa got a little carried away with the biting. And since Paige is the best beloved of Rafa's friend and employee, Jamie, he's got to do something about it. Or Jamie will be inviting Rafa for a cosy threesome with a wooden stake.

So what's a vampire to do? Turn her and hope Jamie can help her through it? Let her die? Or make her into a be-fanged one, and risk her turning out like him, a barely civilised barbarian who accidentally kills people when he feeds?

What's a vampire to do?

If you'd like to find out, be sure to check out Rafa, Paige and Jamie's story in Unholy Trinity, available as soon as Friday dawns!

The Shequanti and other stuff

Gosh! Seems like forever since I blogged here! Hope all of you had wonderful holidays and are now settling into the grim reality which is January. That reality can be lightened quite a bit by any of the fabulous ebooks from Changeling Press that are coming out this month, so I hope you drop by and check out the latest releases.

My own newest offering through Changeling comes out on January 19--"The Stone Table" is the first book of my new series *The Shequanti*. If you like Elves and magic, then this is the book for you--or so I hope.

Oh, in case you haven't noticed, quite a few of our authors have been nominated for numerous awards lately--including CAPAs and the Preditors and Editors annual poll! I hope that you all take the time to check out the outstanding work these writers have given you over the last year and, in the case of preditors and editors, go vote!

Cheers, everyone! Talk to you soon!
