Lovers Unchained (Curse of the Dark Witch)

Lana straddled him. She ran her hands up his chest.

Jude kept his eyes closed. “Why didn’t you teleport in?” 

“I was trying to be polite.” She licked his nipple. Between her legs, she felt his cock jerk and felt his hardness through her leather suit. She wanted him badly; more importantly, she wanted him to want her. He was an obsession she couldn’t get rid of; a puzzle she couldn’t figure out. 

Lana ground her sex against his, drawing a moan from both of their throats. “I have some friends I want you to meet,” she whispered. She pulled back a little and watched for his reaction. Unfortunately, all he did was yawn; he didn’t even open his eyes. 

“Aren’t you a little curious as to who I want you to meet?” Once again, he ignored her. His nonchalance only made her want him more. Every time he ignored her, or pretended to not want her, it only made her work harder to please him and make him want her. Every prisoner she owned would give their last breath to have her show them the amount of attention she wasted on Jude. 

Lana licked his nipple again. She refused to give up; defeat was not a feeling she was 
accustomed to. She placed soft kisses from his nipple up to his neck, and then nibbled along his 
jaw line. She tried to kiss his lips, but he turned his head causing her to kiss his cheek instead. 

Lana hissed in frustration. 

She was tired of playing games with him. When she told her brother about all the problems this slave was giving her, he asked to borrow Jude for a month to train him, but Lana said no. She wanted to be the one to break him. She gave him plenty of chances to give in to her demands. 

If she couldn’t have him by choice, she would have him by force.

Without warning, Lana teleported Jude to her bedroom, where they landed on her bed; she quickly climbed off of him.

“Handcuff him to the bed,” she said to her servants waiting in the shadows. She was tired of playing nice. It was time for her to be the bitch he thought she was.

Some Like It Hotter is pleased to welcome back Elodie Parkes, for the cover reveal of her new release, The Old Star.

Hi Christi,

Thank you for inviting me to your fabulous blog to celebrate the release of my erotic romance, The Old Star with a cover reveal.

The love story has paranormal threads, a little mystery and magic, it’s erotic and I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I loved writing it.

The idea came to me when I was working. Sometimes in my job I have to travel to places where an antique has been offered for sale to the place I work. I had to go look at a chaise longue that was in a semi derelict house. The place was going to be demolished and so I was to buy the item, get it loaded in the truck and bring it back to the store. The guy selling it was just lovely. He and another hunk loaded the chaise longue into the pick-up for me. I’m small and slim so I generally get the help, but this guy was extra helpful and yummy. (Pity we passed each other like ships in the night). The house was spooky and the chaise longue, although needing reupholstering, was great. On the way back to work the story of ‘The Old Star’ dropped into my head. The title had been with me for a few weeks after I saw an old building with that name plaque hanging off the ruins, next to a burned out barn.

Here’s the blurb for the book. It’s releasing from Hot Ink on Kindle August 23, so look out for it, and check my blog for the buy links. In the meantime, here is the cover reveal and a chance to enter the prize draw:

The Old Star

When Cathy Faraday goes out from her office to buy morning tea, a set of circumstances send her on a different route from the one she would normally take. Waiting on a street unknown to her is a house. Old and left to fade away the house looks shabby against its neighbors. The whole row of houses are now offices and Cathy sees a ‘for let sign’ outside the place. Something draws her to the house. Someone watches from the third floor window.

Cathy applies to rent the building to expand her dating agency business. As she begins to make it ready, the house reveals its secrets.

Erotic romance, with a twist of paranormal, set in contemporary England this story will haunt you. 
Graphic sex/love scenes. 18+ only.
I have three trailers too, (smiles), fun to make, one is widescreen, another two are standard, the sexy new one has different music, but I guess I like them all. I’d love for your readers to check them out.
Sexy new trailer The Old Star August 23 release from Hot Ink 

Here’s an excerpt:
‘I have to win her back. I need her to be mine. When she visits me again, I’ll make sure she wants me, needs me…needs my kiss, my touch.’ He was bordering on desperation and it shocked him. He’d never been in such a bad way.

Owen heard the door open and his heart started beating faster. He turned. ‘Its Cathy and she’s alone. She’s brought me coffee. She looks sad.’

“What’s wrong Cathy?”

She held out the cup of coffee.

“I brought you a cup of coffee.”

He smiled. “I see that. Who was that man with you? I thought you said there was no one special in your life.”

Cathy came close and tried to get him to take the cup from her. When he wouldn’t, she placed it a few steps away on the floor, and went back to stand in front of him.

“He’s a friend. He’s tried to get me to see him romantically, but I can’t.”

Owen knew this was the truth by the look on her face and the tone of her voice. He wanted to hug her to his body, and feel her real and soft in his arms.

From Elodie
Just a little about me to let your readers know who I am.

I live in the United Kingdom and I work in an antiques shop as well as writing. I have two dogs that keep me fit with their need for walks. I love the countryside and the coast.

I write romance, contemporary, and erotic with a twist of mystery, suspense, or the paranormal, now and then. I like to make the story unusual in some way, by a quirk in the tale. My books are always steamy.

Some Like It Hotter is pleased to welcome Erin O'Quinn and Nya Rawlyns with their brand new release, Bighorn: A Wilderness Trail Novel.

Thanks, Christi, for letting me be a part of your attractive blog! What I’d like to introduce to your readers is a kind of unique work. . . a novel written by two people a continent away from each other, in a matter of a few weeks, just two women succumbing to their muse and the common thread of loving gay lit stories with emotion and spirit both.

Erin O’Quinn and Nya Rawlyns present . . .

BIGHORN,  the story of two men: An oversized Native American named Truck, a man with a lonely yesterday and a bleak tomorrow . . . A handsome Federal Wildlife agent, a man named Dominic, whose nickname “Dom” should have told Truck something important before he ever messed with him.

Even a spiritual man, in close quarters with a sensuous companion, can be forgiven for letting himself succumb to the moment. Intending merely to give Dom a hand unloading his camp bed, Truck enters his camper shell. Two oversized men in a small space, both hearts sounding a waking call to their deepest needs . . . something has to happen.

By Erin O’Quinn and Nya Rawlyns
The air inside was too hot, too still, the silence a dull aching roar, putting a hurt on him that he couldn’t ignore. It jazzed his body, to the hilt. 

Dom shifted, the movement exposing an obvious erection. That was his opening. He read the signs and made his move. Somehow Dom’s face was inches from his, and his own knee prodded the man’s loins even farther apart. 

Dom didn’t try to move, and Truck didn’t try to talk. He could just see Dom’s fucking crazy-cat eyes reflected in the outside light from the rear of the open shell, and he heard them speak, daring him inside. With one hand high on each of Dom’s thighs, his thumbs between the man’s balls, he leaned in and took control of his open mouth. 

The scratch of a shadow beard on his cheeks, the wide, sulky lips moving under his teeth, tore a goddamn grenade through his balls and up his dick. He somehow stayed in a defensive crouch, still grasping a pair of sinewy thighs, tongue-fucking a man only hours from being a total stranger. It was right, it was perfect, and he collapsed onto the mat, taking Dom down with him, cradling his head, fingers twining the dark strands of silky hair. 

Truck was certain that the other man wanted him, needed his large hand to move from his inner leg to his ass. Still trying to find his way in the mysterious paths of Dom’s moving mouth, he sought and held his tongue, silently ravishing the one part of the stranger he thought he could take wholly, without remorse. 
He felt the man’s supple ass move in the jeans as his left hand kneaded and needed, drawing Dom’s crotch into his own. Even fully barricaded by his suit trousers, Truck felt his balls go tight with anticipation, his dick engorge to the point of explosion. 

Fuck. Stop, man, stop. 

Like a bomb had detonated in his skull, he jerked away from the sensuous taste of lust and managed to get back onto his knees, still bent over a man who hadn’t yet uttered a word. One thumb traced his wide mouth, his soft lower lip, kiss-swollen from the violence of his invasion.

 Choking on the words, he managed to say, “I’m … sorry,” the sound strangled and truncated in the closed space.

Avoiding Dom’s eyes, he rose onto the balls of his feet, still hunchbacked in the tight shell, and crab-stepped his way to the rear opening. Jumping to the ground, he almost ran to the solace of the cabin.

 Oh no, no no. I almost raped the man. 

He hunched against the rear wall, filled with shame and unspilled cum, weeping silent tears from the spirit-wind inside. 

You will find BIGHORN on these venues:
