The Saturday Book Diver Interviews Mookyul from Mookyul (Pretty Boy 3) by Ana Raine

Good morning and welcome to the Saturday Book Diver. This morning we’re at an abandoned gym. Light shining through spaces in the boarded-up windows illuminates the spacious room. Remnants of old fight posters still hang on the peeling walls. Heavy bag hooks dangle from the ceiling beams, a reminder that this had once been a place of activity, a training ground for both amateur and professional fighters.

The tall, lean Korean man who stands in front of me is obviously a fighter in his prime. Though he appears calm, energy glistens in his dark eyes. The graceful yet efficient way he moves reveals years of discipline and training.

I glance toward the shadows across the room and notice another man standing there. . .watching.

The fighter is called Mookyul and he wasn’t always a pro, but I’ll get on with the interview so he can tell you his story in his own words.

SBD: Thank you for taking the time to talk to us. Do you mind if I ask who that man over there is?

Mookyul: My Kumiho, Sae-Min. He didn’t want me to call him master so I call him the Korean word for Fox.

SBD: How did you get your start as a fighter?

Mookyul: After saving Sae-Min from a group of thugs, his dad, the leader of the Seven Star Khangpae took an interest in me. He said he would absolve all my debt and train me as a fighter if I became on of his… “collectors”.

SBD: Is your relationship with Sae-min only professional, or is it personal too?

Mookyul: My relationship with my Kumiho is whatever he wants from me, but personal is the closest word to describe us.

SBD:  What is your favorite training exercise, in the ring and in the bedroom?

Mookyul: In the ring, I like to practice kicks and throwing punches precisely in the spot that will make my opponent falter. In the bedroom, I like to train on my knees in front of my Kumiho until he’s ready for me to train him.

SBD: Would you describe Sae-min in three words?

Mookyul: Sweet, intelligent, intimidating.

SBD: What three words do you think Sae-min would use to describe you, or do you think he’ll consider answering that question himself?

Mookyul: He’ll answer himself.

Sae-Min: Most loyal lover.

SBD: Would you share one of your favorite excerpts from Pretty Boy 3?

Mookyul: Of course…my favorite is when Sae-Min tests my limits in the bedroom. Here’s a brief sneak peak.

Sae-Min released Mookyul as a sad expression flitted over his face. “I don’t like these marks.” Mookyul’s chest rose at the touch of fingers over each raw, fresh star. “Those don’t mark you as mine. I’m sorry.”

“For what?”

“Getting you into the Khangpae was all I could think of.”

Sae-Min crawled further onto Mookyul’s lap, positioning his ass in just the right location. “I’m going to say something. Only once, so make sure you burn it into your brain.”

“Yes, Kumiho.”

“You belong to me.” Sae-Min cupped Mookyul’s face in his hands and brought his lips within inches of Mookyul’s. “Not my old man. Not any of the other collectors. You belong to me.”

Mookyul was aware his legs were shaking with excitement. He was so hard he ached all over. He felt like he wouldn’t be able to wait for another opportunity. Sae-Min pushed his tongue into Mookyul’s mouth. The kiss felt possessive and raw, just like his heart. He wanted to belong to Sae-Min only, but the stars on his chest were burning, aching with possession.

“I bet you want to cum again, hmm?” Sae-Min smiled softly. He held up a watch in front of his face. “I wonder if I have time.”

Mookyul held his breath. “Please.”

Sae-Min smiled as he exited the bed and crossed the bedroom to a tall, black wardrobe. The closet creaked opened, and vaguely, Mookyul could see a small leather box lying in the bottom.

“You said I could do anything to you?”

Mookyul made a strangled sound in the back of his throat. His head hurt slightly, but his fighting injuries were better than they had been in a long time. The soft sheets and the beautiful young man in front of him had to be the cure.

“Oh, no, that response won’t do. Hmm, Pet?”

“Yes, my Kumiho. Anything at all… just, please.”

“Because you asked so sweetly, I will oblige.” Sae-Min stood up. Mookyul knew he was holding something but both of his arms were hidden behind his back and he didn’t know what. He shivered.

“Have you ever been penetrated?” Sae-Min asked in a very sweet voice, taking a deliberate step towards the bed. Mookyul stared at the small chain of beads, not knowing what they were called but getting excited all the same. The look on his Kumiho’s face was one of apprehension, as though he was afraid Mookyul might run.

Mookyul shook his head and then for emphasis added, “I will do anything you want.”

Thank you! Unfortunately the Book Diver magic is calling me back to my world. I wish the best for Mookyul and Sae-min.

Tasty Tuesday - Dirty Pirate Popsicles

Popcicles are a blast from my past. We used to make them all the time when I was a kid. And, of course, when I saw the name of these popcicles I thought of this group. LOL

2 1/2 cups Coke
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua


Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture
into popsicles mold.

Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to
hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing
popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of
popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.

*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. To
quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from
a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of
coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave
bubbles to subside.

Happy, hiccup, summer!

Intergalactic intrigue, sizzling sexual tension, and a giant snake shifter to be vanquished. Things are never dull.

Enjoying much-deserved R&R on the black sand beaches of the ruling Authority’s planet Enitrus, Cliff Blood is not happy when his brother Matt and his lover Rum show up to spoil his vacay with bad news. It seems Brand Lotus, evil snake-villain with a plan to take over Earth by force, has been discovered heading back to Earth and he’s targeting the Bloods’ favorite cops.

Problem is, the Blood boys aren’t going to make it back to Earth before Lotus gets there, so Littlejohn and Petra have to fend for themselves, while negotiating a new development in their relationship that already has them slightly off-balance.

Sentimental Sunday

I was just thinking about my very first release with Changeling Press. (You can click here to go see)

It's called the Magic Touch, and it's about a witch named Trinity who summons a demon named Nicholas, and man, zaniness ensues. I have a soft spot for this one. I love the cover, which is super simple but hot, right?

I also love that Trinity was born out of a character I used to game in an original role playing game my high school best friend and I created. It made me happy to give Trinity a life and a backstory, and to put her out there with the lover she desperately needed.

Here's the official blurb, though I have to tell you, I've gotten better at writing those over the years!

Trinity Broussard doesn't believe in magic. Not one little bit, a fact her family finds amazing considering that magic is their livelihood. That lifestyle teeters on the brink of extinction if Trinity doesn't get with the magical program in time for her next birthday. Trinity's aunt Lorelei is at her wits end. All of her attempts to get Trinity to go along with the plan have failed miserably.

Driven to desperate measures, Lorelei makes a last ditch effort to rev up Trinity's magical sensitivity. She calls in an expert. Nicholas Deveraux is a man with a mission, summoned by Lorelei to do her bidding. He's willing, as long as he gets his payoff in the end, and he sets about making magic real for Trinity, any way he has to.

Trinity thinks Nicholas is an arrogant jerk. Nicholas thinks Trinity is an intriguing mix of magical talent and independence. Both of them feel the attraction between them, but neither of them counts on falling for each other, or on how their lives will change when Trinity begins to believe.

Check it out, y'all!

The Saturday Book Diver Interviews Bellamy Crawford from A Familiar Sin by Jessica Coulter Smith

Good morning! Welcome to the Saturday Book Diver. Every Saturday I dive into fictional worlds to bring you interviews with exciting and unusual characters.

It’s a beautiful morning and I’m at the home of Bellamy Crawford. We’re seated by the pool, enjoying the summer sun.

Bellamy is a lovely woman with brown hair, delicate features and green eyes. Even in her human form, one can almost sense her feline side.

SBD: Thank you, Bellamy, for this interview. I have to admit, I’m fascinated by cat shifters. I’m not sure if this question is too personal, but what does it feel like to shift shape?

Bellamy:  It feels like my body is humming and a light surrounds me, I felt my body shrink and shift from human to cat, but it all happens in a matter of seconds.

SBD: Would you tell us a little about yourself?

Bellamy: Well, the first thing you’ve probably noticed is that I’m in a wheelchair. I guess it defines me to some extent, but I haven’t really let it slow me down. I still get to do things I enjoy, like lying out by the pool, reading and going shopping. I guess I’m your typical bookworm. My parents didn’t allow me to attend college, but now that I’m moving into my mate’s home, that’s the first thing I’m going to change.

SBD: It sounds like you have some great plans. I’ve heard your mate is rather unusual. Would you tell us about him?

Bellamy: Seaton is… well, he’s wonderful. Some might think it’s strange for a cat and a wolf to be mated, but he’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of in a man. Did I mention that we met during a rescue? I’d been kidnapped by a deranged man who thought I belonged to him and Seaton swooped in with his tracker friends and saved my life.

SBD: He wounds like a great guy, or wolf. What is one of Seaton’s sexiest characteristics?

Bellamy: His body is definitely lickable, but I’d have to say it’s his eyes. I could drown in those blue eyes forever.

It’s obvious by the way she talks about Seaton that Bellamy is deeply in love with her mate.

SBD: Would you share one of your favorite excerpts from A Familiar Sin?


Seaton smoothed a hand through his hair and picked up the bouquet of flowers from the passenger’s seat of his truck. He climbed out and closed the door. Facing the large two-story home, he felt his nape prickle. Something told him that this was the start of a new chapter in his life. Meeting Bellamy had been fate’s way of telling him it was time to settle down, to quit fucking around with anything in a skirt. He’d turned down more dates in three days than he had in his entire adult life. But he wasn’t sorry. Well, perhaps a little sorry for the way he’d lived his life up to this point, but he wasn’t sorry for turning all of those women away.

He’d only been in Bellamy’s presence a matter of minutes, but it had been enough to leave a lasting impression on him. He didn’t believe in ridiculous things like love at first sight, but he knew he wanted to get to know her. Could she be his destined mate? There was something about her that called to him. Was it possible she was meant to be his? He’d found her scent both pleasing and intriguing, she didn’t smell like any raven shifter he’d ever smelled before, and she was beyond beautiful. All right, so she was in a wheelchair. Who cared? That was such a small thing in the scheme of things.

Jogging up the porch steps, he knocked on the door, and waited. With his wolf senses, he could hear people moving around inside, and a moment later, the door was opened. Elaine Crawford looked up at him, her brow furrowed in confusion.

“May I help you?” she asked.

“Mrs. Crawford, my name’s Seaton McCullough. I’m one of the trackers who found your daughter the other day. I came by to see her, if she’s available.”

She smiled. “Yes, of course. She’s out by the pool.”

Seaton followed her through the house and out into the backyard. What he saw didn’t please him at all. Bellamy was sitting up on a lounge chair, with a young man right behind her. His beautiful damsel in distress was breathtaking in a bathing suit. He suddenly felt overdressed in jeans and his green Lucky Brand T-shirt.

Bringing Bellamy flowers was a little awkward with such a large audience. All of her sisters were present, along with a handful of other raven shifters. If this didn’t go well, he’d be the laughingstock of the community for weeks to come. He only had to hope that she’d felt something the other day, too. He thought he’d caught a flash of something in her eyes as she’d looked at him, but he might’ve been wrong. There was only one way to find out. Man up and approach her.

As he neared the small group huddled around his target, the talking died down to a minimum. The young shifter behind Bellamy narrowed his eyes and set his jaw, clearly wanting to stake his claim. Seaton wondered just how close the two were. Did he have real competition there? Or was the young man just fantasizing? Getting a good look at him, he realized it was Rio, a raven known for his penchant of getting into trouble. He had to be a few years younger than Bellamy, didn’t he? She seemed older, anyway. Not that her age mattered one whit to Seaton.

He paused beside her chair and waited until he had her attention. When she looked up at him, he presented her with the bouquet he’d picked up on his way over. Her smile lit up her face as she accepted the blossoms, inhaling their scent.

“Thank you, Seaton. They’re lovely.”

“You’re welcome. I thought I’d come by and see how you were doing.”

One of the girls pulled away from the group and dragged a chair over for him. He settled himself and placed his elbows on his knees, studying Bellamy. With the sun kissing her tanned skin, she looked like a goddess. The scent of suntan lotion drifted to him on a breeze, mingled with what he knew was Bellamy’s own unique scent. It was an intriguing mixture.

“I’m doing well, thank you.” She smiled. “I never got a chance to properly thank you and the other trackers.”

“No thanks were needed. We were tasked with a job and we did it. I’m just glad we found you before something bad happened to you.” He paused. “We did find you before then, right?”

“Yes. He merely yelled and threatened before you showed up. I have no doubt he would’ve harmed me if you hadn’t arrived when you did, though. I really do owe you and your friends my life. Is there anything I can do to repay you?”

This wasn’t exactly how he’d planned to ask, but he’d take what he could get.

“There is one thing.”

“Name it.”

“Go to dinner with me, tomorrow night.”

I’ve enjoyed talking to Bellamy and sitting here in the sun is so relaxing that I don’t
want to leave, but the Book Diver magic urges me to return to my world. A romance between a cat shifter and a wolf shifter intrigues me. I’m looking forward to finding out how Bellamy and Seaton’s story turns out. If you are too, check out

Tasty Tuesday - Chicken with Tomatoes and Basil

This is a quick, easy and healthy meal, perfect for a busy Summer night!

I used thin sliced chicken breast for this recipe, but you can also butterfly and pound whole chicken breasts to ¼ inch thick.

5 medium plum tomatoes, diced and seeded
¼ cup packed, fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
5 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2½ tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 medium garlic clove, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves sliced or pounded thin (approximately 2 lbs.)

Combine tomatoes, basil, half the oil, vinegar, and garlic in a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper and brown 3 minutes, or until golden and nearly cooked through, in half the remaining oil. Flip and cook another 2 minutes on the other side. (Cook half at a time and keep the rest warm in a 200°F oven.)

Serve with sweet potatoes mashed with milk and Parmesan cheese.

Arrange the chicken on a plate with a scoop of mashed sweet potatoes and spoon a generous amount of the tomato mixture and juice over the top.

Delicious and pretty!

What if real love began in the pages of a paranormal novel? And what if that love leapt off those pages, and into an avid reader’s arms?

Terra fell in love with Jacobin when he was the hero in a sexy paranormal novel, but when he showed up at her door she thought she was losing her mind. Imagine how she felt to learn her fate had been scribed onto magic pages and could just as easily be erased. Would she be willing to give up everything, just to hold onto a love she never dreamed she’d have?

Hunted: Mixed Breeds 3 is out

who doesn't love an elemental, a leopard and a wolf?

What? I do!

That's Hunted, the newest in the Mixed Breeds series

Check out the hot Renee George cover!

And check out the buy link at Chanegeling Press. I'll holler when it's up at ARE, too, as a lot of y'all go there.

And here's a wee bit to get y'all going

“Biting me would be a very bad idea.” God knew what it would do to his body chemistry. He had a delicate enough balance as it was, despite his hard-won buff body.

“Why?” Her head tilted. “Are you contagious? Humans?”

“You never know.” He wasn’t contagious. He didn’t think. Hell, no one had ever bitten him hard enough to find out.

“Oh, I’ve fucked humans, Shanna. You just have to be gentle with them, but they’re not contagious.”

“Good to know.”

They were comedians. Great. “You two should take your act on the road,” Damon said.

“Good idea. Up.” Chase hauled Damon around, and Shanna shoved him. His cuffed feet weren’t up to the speed of the movement and Damon started to topple over.

They caught him, both of them strong, and the burn in the base of his brain responded, his skin beginning to tingle with heat. Shit, what the hell was that? Whatever it was, it was more dangerous than any weapon, and Damon struggled.

“Easy easy.” Chase sounded worried. “What the fuck? Shanna?”

“I don’t know.” Her nose brushed across his cheek. “Whoa.”

“Yeah. Let me go and I won’t do it again.” Damon was tossing out anything, desperate.

“Shut up,” Shanna growled, letting Chase carry him so she could unlock the shed. “Inside.”

They put him on a lawn chair, two pairs of eyes glowing at him in the dark, that animal shine fascinating. He pressed back, feeling the danger of this whole thing keenly. When they advanced, he kicked out, trying one last-ditch effort to keep those teeth away from his skin.

“You’re not one of us.” Shanna’s voice was pure growl, and so was Chase’s when he answered her.

“He’s not one of them, either, though. No. He’s something else.” Chase tilted his head. “I don’t know what.”

She looked at him, lips twisting. “So, what are you? And don’t lie.”

He stared at her, trying for deadpan. “US government property.”

“What do they want with us?”

He blew out a deep breath. Now he was in deep, but they knew something was off about him. Might as well see if the truth worked. “We don’t want you. We want the hunters.”

“Honey…” Shanna looked at him, head tilted. “I hate to be the one to break the news, but you were running with them. The hunters. The ones with the big guns.”

Damon rolled his eyes. “Look, do you get pizza delivery up here? I’ll buy, we’ll talk. It’ll be great.”

“God, I wish.” For the first time, she was a real girl, someone human, rolling her eyes and licking her lips.

“Seriously?” The Chase guy was grinning, though. “Well, if we’re gonna eat with this guy, tell me you have the stuff to make waffles. Since we can’t have pizza or pho.”

This? Was surreal. Bizarre. Entertaining as hell.

“We have to keep him tied up. Do you cook waffles?” Shanna asked.

“I do. With bacon. If you have bacon.”

Damon snorted. “I like bacon.”

“Everyone likes bacon.” She looked between them, unsure.

“Fuck it,” Chase said. “This has been the weirdest night ever. We can tie him to the chair. Come on.”

Well, being dragged into the house was better than in the barn about to be gnawed on. He might even get a waffle out of it.

The Saturday Book Diver Interviews Petra from Sizzled by Declan Sands

Good morning and welcome to the Saturday Book Diver where every weekend I dive into fictional worlds to bring you interviews with intriguing and sexy characters.

This morning I’m visiting the world of Sizzled. At the moment I’m in the gardens under the fairy mound, where the air smells like flowers. High above my head is a glass dome with strange figures etched into it. I was told that the symbols are protections against humans and shifters. On one side a waterfall trickles merrily down rock and the sound of fairy wings is a near constant buzz on the air.

I’m waiting to speak to police detective Petra Kline. A tall, well-built woman whose brown hair is cut into a shoulder-length bob with bangs approaches. It’s Petra. She introduces herself and shakes my hand. When she speaks to me, she holds my gaze, her wide green eyes unfaltering. I can tell she’s not a woman to be trifled with.

SBD: Hello, Petra. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to talk to me. I know you must have a lot on your plate, being a police detective. Would you tell us a little about your life?

Petra:  My life is pretty much like everybody else’s life…well, except for the fact that I’m dating a Great Dane shifter. [she frowns slightly] Yeah, I guess that’s pretty different, actually. But other than that I’m just like a million other women. I love French fries but they make my ass wide and I struggle every day to prove myself in a male-dominated world.

A Great Dane shifter? That’s a surprise even to me. I can’t wait to ask her more about him!

SBD: What’s it like being a human in a world of shifters?

Petra: Wonderful. Frustrating. I mean, these guys are magical creatures from other planets. It’s really cool. And… [she leans closer, lowers her voice] …there’s naked gun fighting and stuff. [waggles brows] But it’s frustrating because I can’t tell anybody about them. They’re like a super-society that has to stay a secret.

SBD: How would you describe your relationship with Littlejohn?

Petra: It’s incredible. He’s a little controlling, but sexy as hell. We had this great rapport going before we became a couple and that hasn’t changed. We’re really good together, and the sex is phenomenal. The only time we fight is when he tries to go alpha on me. I’m nobody’s damn beta bitch!

SBD: If you had to describe Littlejohn in three words, what would they be?

Petra: Sexy, overprotective, private.

SBD: What’s one thing you now know about Littlejohn that you wish you knew when you first met him?

Petra: He loves dogs. Actually, he is one. I guess I’d like to have known that too. LOL He was so serious and “by the book” when we met. I wasn’t even sure I liked him at first.

SBD: Would you share one of your favorite excerpts from SIZZLED?

Petra: Absolutely! Here goes…

Petra had been struggling with her feelings for weeks. She wanted him, badly, but she wasn’t sure if he felt the same so she’d been waiting for him to make the first move. Despite her hope that he would take things into his own hands, his procrastination had just about pushed her to the point of grabbing him and flinging him to the ground to have her way.

But in that moment his intention seemed clear, his need even clearer. It pressed long and hard against her belly. His hand slipped from her waist to slide across her buttocks and Petra sucked in a soft breath. His head dropped closer, she rose on her tiptoes, and finally…his lips found hers.

Her heart leapt in her chest. Her lungs filled with his essence and her hands skimmed hungrily across his exposed skin. Petra’s fingers slid over his smooth, hot flesh as if memorizing him with her touch. She opened her lips and his tongue speared through, his taste searing across her senses and making her pussy tighten with need.

All thought of weakness fled her. His touch, his taste, the feel of him against her skin, infused her with strength and hunger and a sense of ravening need. She suddenly couldn’t get close enough to him. Her hands found his perfect, round buttocks and pulled him closer. Her leg lifted to wrap around his thighs and she arched her mons against him, rubbing against the ridge of rock-hard flesh beneath his boxers.

Littlejohn groaned against her lips, his mouth taking hers with crushing, desperate force as he deepened the kiss. A low growl throbbed in his throat and the sound sent a thrill spearing through her. Petra’s belly tightened under a wave of pure lust. She broke the kiss, grabbing his chin with one hand. “Make love to me, Ralph. Right here, right now.”

He held her gaze for a moment, as if trying to judge the sincerity of her offer. His eyes held a fevered light. If he was uncertain about taking that next, big step he didn’t let it stop him. He inclined his head, a smile tugging at the corners of his lips, and his big hands started tugging on the flimsy silk of her panties. “I’ve wanted this for too long, Pet. It won’t be gentle or sweet.”

She stepped out of the useless scrap and captured his sexy bottom lip between her teeth, biting hard enough to make him moan. “Good. I don’t want gentle, I want you to fuck me until I can’t breathe.”

After that excerpt, I’m not sure I can breathe. Talk about sexy!

Petra has just received a call and needs to get back on duty, but the timing is perfect because I don’t have much longer in this world before the book diver magic calls me away.

The Saturday Book Diver Interviews Jinx Star from Film Me by Megan Slayer

Good morning! I’m here on the set of film star Jinx Star’s new movie. We’re sitting by a pool in a gorgeous tropical setting, but it’s not nearly as beautiful as the actress herself.

Jinx lounges in a chair, relaxed and ready to talk. The tall, busty blond smiles at me, waiting for the interview to start.

SBD: Thank you, Jinx, for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to me. How did you get into movies and what attracted you to the porn industry?

Jinx:  I like sex. Plain and simple. Sounds silly, but it’s true. Okay, initially, I liked sex and figured it was all I was good at. I found out that’s not the case, but time and experience taught me that. Going into porn meant money. Or it was supposed to. My eyes were opened big time. Unless you’re willing to do anythingand I mean anythingthere isn’t big money.

SBD: You’ve worked with a lot of sexy actors, most recently Wes Long. Can you tell us some dirty secrets about him, or at least what kind of guy he is?

Jinx: The name is right on. Good Lord, he’s long. Lasts long and is long. ((Happy shivers). He comes off as a real ass, all full of himself and macho, butand he won’t like me saying this but I don’t carehe’s actually a good guy. Caring, quiet and sweet.

SBD: If you could make your dream movie with Wes, what would it be?

Jinx: Something with bondage. I mean, look at him. He embodies sin and sex. How do you not want to submit to him?

SBD: How do you think Wes would describe you?

Jinx: Probably a bobble head with big boobs. Did I mention he’s blunt? Actually, it would depend on what moment you asked him. If you got him to be honest but not jerkish, he’d say I was a sweet kid. Yeah, he thinks I’m a kid. I’m only a couple years younger than him. Otherwise he’d call me another pussy to fill. Men. Sigh.

SBD: What’s your favorite sex toy?

Jinx: Oh! The inflatable dildos. Love those. You can customize them for what you want. Long and slender or thick and filling. I could go for one of those right now.

SBD: Would you share one of your favorite excerpts from Film Me?

Wes dropped to his knees before her. “To do what I want to do, which I think you’ll enjoy, I need your submission. You need a safe word. I won’t play without one. What’s the name of your favorite band?”
“Perfect. If we get to a place where you need to stop or things are too heavy for you, use that word. Repeat it for me.”
“Good girl.” He stood, then crossed the room to the prop dresser. He withdrew a collar and a thick leather paddle. “What are your fears? What do you not want to do?”
She glanced at the collar. She’d worn plenty of props for the job, but the collar didn’t look like the average easy-release model. This sucker meant business. She swallowed past the lump of fear in her throat. “I like to be spanked. Toys are fun. Handcuffs, rope, I like being bound. But don’t call me a slut.” She averted her gaze. Even when the script called for the male to refer to her as his slut, she winced. “Don’t choke me, embarrass me or draw blood.”
“I appreciate your honesty.” He tossed the paddle onto the bed beside her. “I’m going to make you fly.” He opened the buckle on the collar. “The script calls for you to wear this. Do you accept?”
“Yes, Sir.” She tilted her head back, exposing her neck. “Thank you, Sir.”
“Good girl.” He affixed the collar around her throat, then kissed her. Not hard, but tender, like they’d been together for years. Her lips tingled and her pussy creamed. She couldn’t remember the last time she’d been kissed and her body reacted with such glee.
Wes broke the kiss first, then grasped her wrists. “I’ll walk you through the basic script. I’ll set everything up, then we’ll start filming. You’ll be in that” -- he waved to her outfit -- “and I’ll lead you in with a leash.” He touched her kiss-swollen lips. “Want to use that safe word?”
“No, Sir.” Her nipples beaded. Maybe she liked this submission stuff more than she’d thought. Jinx offered her wrists. “Ready, Sir.”
His smile curled his lips and warmed her body. “Take off your thong and have a seat over here.”
Jinx dropped her thong, sat on the chair, and watched him work. Wes rubbed his chin, then picked up the paddle. He stuck the handle in the back pocket of his jeans. Next he affixed a bar to the footboard of the bed. A butt plug and a vibrator ended up on the nightstand along with a condom and a bottle of lube.
While he worked, she pressed her knees together. He moved with grace and elegance, nothing like she imagined from watching his videos. When he glanced over his shoulder at her and winked, her heart melted. How did he do it? How did he manage to make her feel so special? She touched her breast, tweaking her nipple and suppressing a moan. No wonder everyone wanted to work with him.
She closed her eyes and massaged her breasts. Focus on the pleasure.
“I didn’t say no touching.” Wes’ voice broke through her sensual fog. “Maybe I should’ve. Or should I punish you?”
Jinx opened her eyes, but averted her gaze. The men who played her masters didn’t want her to look at them.
“You’re going to be a brat, aren’t you?” He hooked his fingers under her chin, redirecting her attention. “I’m ready for you, Jinxy. I’ll be watching you and making sure you’re comfortable and happy, but you’ve got to be honest with me.”
At least he’d reverted to her stage name. She offered her wrists again.
“Good girl.”

Wow! I need some ice water after that. To see what happens to Jinx and Wes, check out

Tasty Tuesday: Cheddar Chicken with Pasta

I know August is a hot month for most of us, and cooking is the last thing on our minds. Here's a recipe I found in a Taste of Home magazine that is relatively simple and the cook time is super-short. You can even make it ahead of time and pop it in the oven when you get back from a day at the beach!

Cheddar Chicken with Pasta


7 oz of your favorite type of pasta (ex: spaghetti - broken; shells; rotini; bowtie; etc)

2 cups cubed cooked chicken

2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided

1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon diced pimentos, optional

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


Cook pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the chicken, 1 cup of cheese, soup, milk, pimientos, salt and pepper. 

Drain spaghetti; add to chicken mixture and toss to coat.

Transfer to a greased casserole dish (13x9x2).

Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake, uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until heated through.

Serves 6 - 8 

Happy cooking!

The Saturday Book Diver Interviews Theo from Falling for Fall by Sara Jay

Good morning! Welcome to the Saturday Book Diver!

It’s a beautiful day and I’m in a gorgeous woods located in the world of Falling for Fall. Though it’s a warm day, the shade from the trees keeps the area cool. The scent of dirt and vegetation is so refreshing. As lovely and natural as this world is, there’s a hint of magic as well.

As a book diver, normally I’m not surprised by much, but sitting here in a chair of roots conjured right from the ground by the incredible man I’m talking to, I can’t help feeling amazed.

Theo, The Green Man of the Forest, has a devilish spark in his eyes. His russet hair is as wild as the forest itself. He carries the scent of bonfires and although he’s lounging back in his own root chair, his foot taps a bit restlessly and his sexy hands toy with the gnarly arm rests. I can almost feel his energy.

SBD: Good morning, Theo. Thank you for talking to us today. You have an interesting career as a paranormal investigator. How did you get into that?

Theo: Oh, you know how it is. You humans muddle things about and need someone tall, dark and handsome to take care of things for you. (Smirks.) Seriously, though, we have crime in both of our worlds, so whose better to protect you than a forest god?

SBD: I can’t argue with that. What can you tell us about your partner Autumn?

Theo: When we have a case that involves humans, we have to have a human investigator in on it. Autumn is tough and gets the job done. She’s saved my ass plenty of times. Or was she just looking at my ass? You know, I can’t remember. (He smirks again.)

Theo’s flirty sense of humor is infectious. I find myself relaxing in his presence.

SBD: What’s one of Autumn’s sexiest attributes?

Theo: Chestnut hair, glowing amber eyes, squeezable—ah, you know. She’s the whole package. You’d think she’s fae-born, she’s so damn sexy. And she’s all mine. She just doesn’t know it yet.

SBD: What three words do you think Autumn would use to describe you?

Theo: Gorgeous, sexy and irresistible? Maybe in my dreams! (He grudgingly shrugs.) Okay, you got me. She’d probably say incorrigible, insufferable and a horndog!

At least he’s honest, but I can’t help thinking that Autumn probably would describe him with the first three words as well as the last. It’s hard to believe she won’t respond to this guy who obviously admires and desires her.

SBD: Can you tell us anything about the case you and Autumn are working on now, or is that not allowed?

Theo: We’re working on solving a case about human men turning into weird, dragon-like creatures at the altar. I had some suspects in mind, but I think Autumn has a really good lead we’re going to follow.

SBD: Sounds dangerous but exciting! Would you share one of your favorite excerpts from Falling for Fall?

Theo: Sure! Here’s the first page. I could give you the excerpt where I go invisible and seduce Autumn in front of a bunch of people, but I think she might object to that. (He winks.)

Freezing. I’m freezing.

My cold feet bounce left, then right. My tits follow in fashion.

“Locked out, I see.” Theo’s smirk peers out from inside an oak tree. Of course the Green Man would show up while I’m wearing nothing but a Journey t-shirt. Shivering, I cover my ass.

The giant armholes in the shirt dip lower, giving the forest god a peek of my left breast. I clutch my little knapsack over my butt but it doesn’t cover up much.

“I could warm you up, Autumn,” he offers, the crisp scent of the season on his breath as he saunters toward me.

Before I know it, there are leaves in my hair, too. When did he get so close?

“Theo, you’re horrible,” I gasp, half-heartedly shoving at him. His warm brown eyes sparkle at me as they pointedly drop from my gaze to my breasts. Smirking, he bunches my t-shirt behind my back with one hand, stretching it even more tautly against me.

“Why would a capable detective from the St. Louis Paranormal Investigation Unit lock herself out of her own house on this frosty fall morning, mmm?” A laugh rumbles in his chest as his wide, calloused fingers caress my face.

“To tumble in the leaves with a horny forest god?” I ask, jutting out my chest for good measure. He licks his lips as my nipples poke up at him, and I can’t help but grin.

“So it would seem.” Theo’s freckles, which make him look in his twenties rather than thousands of years old, are clear in view as his face nears my own. Early morning sunlight shines off his russet crop of hair, nearly blinding me in a bold display of autumn color. I close my eyes, open my mouth and lean in to meet him.

Lips barely grazing mine, Theo whispers, “But we have more important things to do than tumble in the leaves.”

Sounds like a great adventure!

At that moment, Theo receives a call from Autumn. I wish I could stick around to meet her too, but it sounds like they’re going to be pretty busy, not to mention the Book Diver magic is calling me away. I hope that someday I can revisit this world and maybe talk to Autumn as well. In the meantime, I’d like to find out what happens to her and Theo. If you would to, check out
