Simply Sexy Stories Welcomes Jenika Snow!

NG: I’m welcoming Jenika Snow on Simply Sexy Stories! Hi, Jenika, tell me, what are you reading right now?

JS: I am actually currently reading, Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward.

NG: Oh, la la! I love the BDB series and that book! Let's talk about your writing, what genre(s) do you write and why?

JS: I write paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, BDSM, and GBLT erotic romance.

NG: What draws you to erotic romantic novels?

JS: When I first started reading it certainly wasn’t erotic romance. It was mainstream romance, and the more I read, the more I thought that the story would be so much better if the author was descriptive when the two main characters are finally intimate. Once I had that thought planted in my mind I started picking up erotic romances. I have been hooked ever since.

NG: Are there any particular authors you enjoy reading or that have influenced your writing?

JS: I know I have said this in other interviews, but I stand by my statement that at first, Christine Feehan drew me into the whole paranormal romance aspect. After that, I delved into Jaid Black, Lora Leigh, and J.R. Ward. Of course I have branched out and found numerous other talented authors that write incredible stories, but those three are the ones that really started me in on reading and writing.

NG: Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantster?

JS: I don’t plot. I almost wish I did, though. I get an idea in my mind and go from there. As I’m writing, the story unfolds in front of me and I just let it happen. Sometimes it isn’t how I think it should go and so I’ll tweak it a bit, but overall, I just sit in front of my computer and let the story lead the way.

NG: Has your writing process changed since your first book was published?

JS: Oh yes. Well, I didn’t know what I was doing when I wrote my first book. After reading it once it came out in paperback I couldn’t stop thinking how much I have changed in my writing patterns, for the better. I personally think I have been able to look at the whole picture and focus on the details that really connect the whole story. It wasn’t like that at first, but I just kept practicing. Not to say I have mastered writing in the least. I have so much to learn still.

NG: What are you working on for the rest of the year?

JS: Well, I am about ¾ of the way done with the second Blood Breed book. I have wanted to finish that book because I have had emails from readers asking when it will come out. I am kind of stuck on it, though. I don’t know exactly how I want it to end, and so to my disappointment it has just kind of been on the backburner.

I am also working on books 2 and three in my Wickedly Taboo Series which will feature a young woman and her two step-brothers, and a young woman who is determined to seduce her best friend’s father.

I also am working on the fifth book in the Luecross Series, which I m about half way finished. I have a ton of other ideas in the works, but they are all in different stages of completion.

NG: You are a busy lady! Let's talk about your latest BDSM release The Diary of Anna’s Submission. What's this erotic tale all about?

JS: This story is about a young woman who has desired the wicked and taboo. She doesn’t feel like she belongs, but when she takes a trip to a secluded cabin, she realizes she isn’t alone. This is Anna’s story about her submission, and whether or not she will embrace it or run away from the very thing that will change her life.

NG: What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?

JS: I was reading a lot of abduction and BDSM tales and something inside of me just clicked and I told myself I had to write a story like this. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and the next day I started writing it.

Originally this story was going to have the main character, Anna, abducted and forced into doing things she wasn’t comfortable with at first. This changed after I started writing the story because I didn’t know if that would change the whole composition of the story. In the end I was very happy with how the story played out.

NG: Which movie stars would you choose, if you could, to accurately portray your main characters?




JS: I imagine Anna being played by Amanda Syfried













Felix would best be portrayed by Gerard Butler




NG: Ooo, I love it! If you had to add a song/soundtrack to your manuscript what would it be?

JS: I would have to say the song would be from Incubus from the soundtrack Make Yourself. The song would be “The Warmth.”

NG: Were there any creative challenges faced and conquered before you wrote, 'The End'?

JS: Not so much when I wrote the ending, but more so in the beginning. I faced the challenge of whether or not I should add abduction and forced seduction, but in the end the story grew a life of its own and I just typed out what it said.

NG: I love it when that happens! Give me three reasons readers will love
Jenika Snow.

JS:
1.) They will be sure to need a fan to cool off with.
2.) They can expect something different and tantalizing
3.) They don’t have to look far to get a variety of reading material, because Jenika Snow writes under many genres.

NG: What's the one thing readers can always count on when picking up one of your books?

JS: I hope shock and surprise. I aim to throw in a bit of the unusual to challenge readers. Don’t know if I succeed or not, but that is always my goal.

NG: Thank you so much for stopping by today, Jenika! I wish you much success with this release!




Blurb: Anna has dark and taboo desires that leave her feeling ashamed and unnatural. All she can think about is how it would feel to let a man possess her in the most primal of ways. Despite her inexperience, and the fact she is a virgin, she knows she wants to be at the mercy of a dominating man, one who can show her what it really means to submit.

When she is propositioned by Felix, a Dominant at the local BDSM club, Anna has to make the choice to either accept what Felix has to offer, or leave behind an experience that will forever change her life.

Deciding to let Master Felix train her in the art of being a true submissive, Anna takes a journey that will bare her soul, and leave her body deliciously sore.


Caution! Super Sexy Excerpt Below:
“Come on, Anna.” He took my hand and we went into the bedroom. The door was open and the light from the candles on the dresser illuminated, and also cast shadows, throughout the room. He was behind me, his chest pressed against my back.

“Close your eyes.” His words were soft against my ear and sent tingles of apprehension and excitement through me.

Although I hesitated, I did as he asked. Anticipation coursed through me with such force my knees felt weak. My skin pebbled when his fingers ran down my arms. When he pulled away, I involuntarily shivered and kept my eyes closed. When I felt the butter soft silk cover my eyes a wave of panic took hold of me.

“Trust me.”

That was all he said, but it was all I needed to hear. As if his voice was a talisman, my body slowly calmed and I became like Jell-O under his fingers. It was his voice, so soft and soothing, yet deep and commanding. I couldn’t help but listen and obey him.

Once the blindfold was secured across my eyes, I felt him take my hand and lead me a few steps. My heart beat in my throat, my skin felt moist with perspiration, and I knew it had nothing to do with fear and everything to do with my readiness to experience what Felix had in store. I stood absolutely still when I felt him start to remove my clothing, one article at a time until I was nude.

His fingers were nimble across my flesh, heating me slowly with mastery and expertise. He lifted my arms, and I heard a rustling before something tight and unyielding snapped around my wrists. I tugged when I realized he had secured them above me and started to pant. Never had I been or felt so vulnerable.

“I’m going to open your senses up, Anna. For far too long you have stayed hidden within your perfect, comfortable little life, wanting to be woke from the mundane dream you have lived.” His voice became more distant, as if he was moving across the room. I heard the jangle of metal on metal and my throat became dry.

“I am going to give you an experience you have never imagined. Tonight you will learn what it means to truly submit to me, Anna.”

Oh God. His words tantalized me, but I feared what he had in store for me. Would he be gentle? Would he take into consideration that I had never done this, never even had sex before? He had been considerate and gentle with me at every opportunity, but I could hear the shift in his voice, a subtle yet distinctive note that made me realize I was in the presence of a very dominating man, one who didn’t show mercy.

The images of him whipping that woman at the club—her ass red and welted, the sounds of her pleads and moans filled my mind and caused me to shake. I wrapped my hands around my binding, a rough texture that scrapped against my palm.

“I will also teach you the importance of obedience since you have displayed continuously that you are unaware of the concept.”

He was moving closer to me, I could tell by the way his voice came nearer, stroking over me like invisible hands and setting my blood on fire. I knew he was right behind me, yet he didn’t touch me. The feeling of his body heat spearing through me was like walking into a fire, hot and burning me alive.

“Do you understand what I am saying, Anna? Do you understand that tonight will be about experiencing pleasure and pain?” I nodded because I couldn’t find my voice. My throat felt closed and my mouth dry.

The feel of leather cracking across my thighs and ass had me gasping in response. I strained against my binds.

“I asked you a question. You will answer me or I will continue to punish you the entire night.” He ran his palm over the area he had just spanked and I winced in pain. I could feel my blood rush to it and my skin tingled. The longer he rubbed his hand over the spot, the more it started to burn with pleasure.

“Now answer me,” he whispered close to my ear. I cleared my throat to do what he asked.

“I understand, Felix.”

“Good.” He purred behind me and pressed himself closer to my back. I felt the stiff outline of his cock nestle between my ass cheeks. I wanted so desperately to press myself against him, to feel that hard, thick length rub along the most sensitive part of me, but I refrained, not wanting to disobey him further.

Nothing was said for several moments and I didn’t dare speak and ask him what was going on. As if he had been waiting for something, maybe a shift of my body or an increase in my breathing, his open palm landed on my ass cheek with such force I swung forward on my restraints.

Tightening my hold on the rope, I felt the fibers dig into my skin which caused a burn to travel throughout my whole body. His hand landed on the center of my back and applied pressure so that I was forced to lean forward. The strain of holding myself in such an awkward position started to cause an indescribable pain to settle in my arms, but I bit my inner lip and kept quiet.

Will Raiden choose her as his one and only Doll?

Six Sentence Sunday - Unfazed!

Scene: Zori has finally got Greyson exactly where she wants him...tied and bound in her bed! Finally, she gets to have her way with her very sexy catch, she's in complete control...or is she?

She searched Greyson's face for a hint of fear and found none. He knew she was something other than human and yet he studied her as she studied him with surprising calm. For a split second, Zori felt uncomfortable. There was something in his posture, something lingering in his dark gaze, never seen on all of the bound lovers she'd enjoyed before.

Confidence?

Despite being taken against his will, tied up for her own pleasures, Greyson appeared unfazed…even slightly amused.

Simply Sexy Stories Welcomes Delaney Diamond!

NG: Today, I’m welcoming Delaney Diamond on Simply Sexy Stories! Hi, Delaney!

DD: Hi Nichelle! Thanks for having me.

NG: It's my pleasure! Let's talk about books. What are you reading now?

DD: I took a break from romance novels and just finished Tryin’ to Sleep in the Bed You Made by Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant. Next I might read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I’ve had the book since last year and the movie’s coming out in the fall, so I need to hurry up and read it.

NG: I prefer to read the book before seeing the movie too! Let's talk about your writing. What genre do you write and why?

DD: I write contemporary romance because those are the novels I like and tend to read most often.

NG: Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantser?

DD: I’m mostly a pantser. I get an idea in my head, and then I start writing. As it progresses, I organize the story into chapters and name each chapter so I’ll know what happens in each. I keep track of the chapter names in an Excel sheet, which I also use to keep up with my word count. For example, in Fight for Love, the chapters were labeled like this: Chapter 5-Dinner at Parents’ House or Chapter 9-Trip to California.

NG: Has your writing process changed since your first book was published?

DD: When I first started writing, I didn’t write anything down. I completely winged it. LOL. Now I have a notebook I carry around as inspiration strikes me, and the Excel sheet is helpful once I start work on a new project.

NG: What are you working on for the rest of 2011?

DD: Glad you asked! Here’s what I’m working on:
1) The third free read for the Free Reads section of my website.
2) An interracial romance tentatively titled Private Acts. The heroine is Samirah Jamison, Rebekah’s younger sister, who makes a brief appearance in Fight for Love.
3) An African-American romance about Dr. Roarke Hawthorne, who’s shocked to see the woman he spent a passionate night with show up at his sister’s wedding on the arm of his brother.

NG: Ooo...sounds good! Tell me about your new release Fight for Love. What's this contemporary interracial romance about?

DD: It’s the story of Rafael Lopez and Rebekah Jamison. When she was seventeen and he was twenty, they met and fell in love, but her parents didn’t approve. They eloped when she turned eighteen, but their marriage didn’t last because of a tabloid scandal that rocked the wrestling industry. Nine years later, Rafael shows up at Rebekah’s door unannounced, and he finds out he has a son. The fireworks begin from there!

NG: What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?

DD: I wanted to write a story about a professional athlete, and I chose wrestling because I grew up watching it with my father. Writing an opposites attract story was also appealing. Rebekah grew up in a conservative, well-to-do family. Rafael grew up poor and had a roughness about him her parents didn’t like. Their personalities clash because of their differences and the past, but the chemistry and love between them is obvious.

NG: Did you face any creative challenges in the process of writing this book?

DD: There was only one thing I wasn’t sure about. The reason Rafael showed up at Rebekah’s house after all these years is because he found out they’re still married and came to tell her. The challenge for me was to figure out a way that two people could think they’re divorced but are actually still married. Turns out it does happen!

I spoke to an attorney as well as a friend of mine who is a paralegal and they explained how the courts could make such a mistake. It gave me the idea of how to set up a clerical error that kept Rebekah and Rafael married for the past nine years, but they didn’t know it.

I got an earful about the court system, and I’m amazed there aren’t more legal issues caused by human error. Attorneys and paralegals do much more than we give them credit for.

NG: Describe the heroine and hero in three words.

DD: Hero: passionate, possessive, stubborn
Heroine: loving, protective, headstrong

NG: What can readers always count on when reading one of your books?

DD: Lots of sexual tension and an emotional connection between the two leads.

NG: Give me three reasons readers will love Fight for Love.

DD:
1. A sexy, six-foot-three Mexican athlete.
2. The characters are believable and relatable.
3. Good old sexual tension.

NG: Sounds like a TKO! lol...sorry, I couldn't resist! Thank you so much for stopping by Simply Sexy Stories, Delaney!

DD: Thank you for having me! I appreciate it. For readers stopping by, I have a question for you: What traits do you find attractive in the heroes and heroines of the romance novels you read?

NG: I love reading and writing mysterious, commanding, sexy, dangerous heroes! Character traits for the heroine can change depending on the storyline. I like reading about the innocent, shy virgin and I enjoy the defiant, aggressive heroine as well. Way to turn the tables on me, Delaney! :)
Blurb: Science teacher Rebekah Jamison lives a quiet life in the suburbs of Atlanta. Devastated by a tabloid scandal nine years ago, she ended her marriage to the man her parents never approved of. Rafael Lopez, former professional wrestler and “Sexiest Athlete Alive, “regrets the lapse in judgment that caused him to lose his wife. He shows up unannounced one day with some startling news, but he gets a surprise of his own. He finds out he’s a father. To get to know his son, he whisks him and Rebekah off to his home in the Hollywood Hills for the summer.

Warning: Get ready for a sensual battle of wills as a conservative teacher lowers her inhibitions and is reminded of why she fell in love with a sexy bad boy wrestler in the first place.

Caution! Super Sexy Excerpt Below:
After Rafael finds out he’s a father, he surprises Rebekah when he tells her the reason for his visit is to inform her they’re still married. The following is taken from a scene right after that where Rebekah throws the tabloid scandal in his face.

He stepped angrily toward her, but this time, she didn’t retreat. She stood her ground, almost eye to eye with him on the bottom stair. The only indication she was even the least bit disturbed was in the almost unnoticeable tightening of her hand on the balustrade.

“You always could make my blood boil,” he ground out. In more ways than one.
He lowered his gaze to take in the rise and fall of her breasts beneath the pink top. The provocative protrusion of her nipples against the material tortured him mercilessly. The shallow inhalation of her soft breaths teased his senses and stoked the flame of arousal in his loins.

He could clearly see in her face that she was not any more immune to him than he was to her. Without thinking, he reached up to stroke her face, and was rewarded when her hand swatted his away.

“Don’t you dare touch me,” she whispered fiercely, her eyes darkening in anger. Had he imagined the desire he saw smoldering there? “Don’t think for one minute that because of an unfortunate twist of fate that kept us married you have any right to touch me. You gave up that right years ago.”

“I suppose you’ve had plenty of opportunity for exploration since then.” He shouldn’t have mentioned it, but he couldn’t help himself. His stomach muscles tensed as if in preparation for a punch.

“I suppose it’s none of your business,” Rebekah replied with a defiant tilt to her chin.

The irony of the situation wasn’t lost on him. Over the years, he’d used other women to help him get over losing her, yet here he was, torn apart by jealousy at the thought that any other man had touched what was his.

Rebekah took a deep breath. “Let’s get this over with.” She marched up the stairs.
Rafael followed more slowly. He took in the view from a few feet behind her, the curve of her bottom and the shapely brown thighs in a pair of cut-off denim shorts. Thighs he wished he could now slide between and ease this voracious craving for her.
Emblazoned in his mind was the image of her beneath him in their bed, his fingers entwined in the tangled disarray of her long hair as she moaned her encouragement.

He could still hear the sweet words. Mmm…yes, I like that…please…don’t stop…ahh…Rafe…Yes! Yes!

He had been her first. Every chauvinistic bone in his body rebelled against the thought that others had been in her bed and now knew the truth beneath her reserved exterior—that she was a passionate, giving lover. That even though he had prided himself on being her teacher, the exuberance of her responses and sweetness of her touch had wielded substantial power over him.

More than she even realized.

Simply Sexy Stories Welcomes Sam Crescent!

NG: I'm thrilled to be hosting Sam Crescent's release party for Office Hours which came out with Total E-Bound today! Welcome, Sam, congratulations! Let's jump right in, what genre(s) do you write and why?

SC: At the moment erotic romance but I'm working through a paranormal one as well. Love those Vampires.

NG: Me too, Sam! What draws you to erotic romantic novels?

SC: I've read a lot of different stuff over the years and erotic romance seems to have a multitude of layers to it. It's not just about the sex but accepting and drawing people into a relationship, it has also opened doors for me as a reader and writer about concepts I never knew existed. That's what I love.

NG: What are you reading now?

SC: Dirty by Megan Hart

NG: Are there any particular authors you enjoy reading or that have influenced your writing?

SC: Do you have a list that goes on forever, J. R. Ward, Lora Leigh, Diana Palmer, Nichelle Gregory, Saskia Walker, Shiloh Walker... the list can go on and on...

NG: *g* We have similar tastes and I'm honored to be on your list! Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantster?

SC: For me, it always starts with the characters. What usually happens is a person or people (characters) will appear in my head. I get to know my characters, what they look like, what they do all the little questions. Then once I know the characters I start to work on the relationship, whether it is m/f or m/m/f.

You know, how they come together and then I work out the story line, which tends to come while writing but for me without the characters I can't think up a plot, does that mean I'm laid back?

NG: Has your writing process changed since your first book was published?

SC: Yes, I write more now.

NG: What are you currently working on?

SC: Right now I'm going through my paranormal romance that I'm working on and looking at a seasonal (Christmas) love story.

NG: Sweet! Let's talk about Office Hours which is hot off the presses today! What's this erotic romance all about?

SC: Two people who work together, who seem to have nothing in common are suddenly thrust together where they have to learn to trust. Time away from other people and the world is always good and with Office Hours all these two people need is time and a snow storm. Did I mention I adore snow.

NG: Brrr! Don't mention the 'S' word! *g* What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?

SC: A love of Buxton and once Anya appeared in my head she wouldn't leave me alone. That sassiness had to be written. Nathan was perfect for her, now my mind is free for other takers.

NG: Which movie stars would accurately portray your main characters?

SC: I really don't know. When I wrote Office Hours I was only watching cookery shows, I love cooking. So I didn't let any actors/ actresses in on the action if you know what I mean. Erm, I suppose you could go with Anya being like Kate Winslet from Titanic with the red hair and Nathan is more of a Gerard Butler from the Ugly truth minus the facial hair. Does that work?

NG: Yup, I've got a nice visual of your characters! If you had to add a song/soundtrack to your manuscript what would it be?

SC: erm.. none, I wrote this while cookery shows were playing in the background.

NG: Were there any creative challenges faced and conquered before you wrote, 'The End'?

SC: I think it was getting Anya to accept that she could love again. She could trust another man with her heart. I got really attached to her and how she could deal with the trouble of relationships. She simply didn't have any and suddenly there is this guy who wants to be with her. So it was allowing Nathan, making him the right guy for her, to take care of her.

NG: Give me three reasons readers will love Office Hours.

SC: It has snow. Some great sex and two stubborn people who fall in love.

NG: What's the one thing readers can always count on when picking up one of your books?

SC: I love romance and a love story and that is what I try to include in all of my stories no matter how difficult it may seem, a happy ending.

NG: Ahh! The perfect combination for romance lovers! Thanks for sharing your big day here on Simply Sexy Stories, Sam! Best wishes for this and future releases!
Blurb: Fiery redheaded temptress Anya King is desperate for the carnal delights of
a pleasure weekend. A chance to indulge in every sexual fantasy…

But demanding, sexy boss, Nathan Banks, has signed them both up for a ‘team-building’ weekend in the beautiful country town of Buxton. 

An innocent weekend turns to hot, lusty sex—hot enough to melt the snow outside and the ice around their hearts. Will the job Anya loves survive the weekend?
And will their time together be more than just a moment?

Caution! Super Sexy Excerpt Below:
Nathan switched his phone off, watching Anya sleep peacefully with a smile on her face. He wondered what she was dreaming about to put such ease on her face. A musky, beautifully feminine smell filled the car. When he’d first smelt it teasing his nostrils, he’d been sure it was her female essence, but now he thought he must be losing his mind. There was no way she could have climaxed in the back of his limousine.

Anya would never do such a thing—surely she was too prim and proper. No way he’d ever catch her with her hand down her pants. She had her hair in a bun, for crying out loud! He sat staring at her, her lips full, slightly open, teasing him. He shook his head. Get her out of your mind.

His cock swelled in his pants, forcing him to recognise his fella’s existence—no action in a while, and now he was trying to poke his head out when he least wanted it.

No sex with the PA. No sex with the PA.

He could just imagine a sexual harassment case being slammed in his lap.

Bio:
Sam Crescent is passionate about fiction. She loves a good erotic romance and so it only made sense for her to spread her wings and start writing. She began writing in 2009 and finally got that first acceptance in 2011 by Total-E-Bound.


She loved creating new characters and delving into the worlds that she creates. When she’s not panicking about a story or arguing with a character, she can be found in her kitchen creating all kinds of havoc. Like her stories the creations in the kitchen can be just as dubious but sometimes things turn out great.

Six Sentence Sunday - Caught Wet-handed!

Whoo ooo! This is my very first time participating in Six Sentence Sunday! This snippet comes from Doll, a contemporary, D/s erotic romance available now with Total E-Bound Publishing!

Scene:
Rena's been caught with one hand unbound, completely wet-handed...which is totally unacceptable for a Doll.


“Your hand is not bound.”

Her heart skipped a beat at the frown marring his handsome features.

“Dolls are not allowed to self-pleasure unless they are told.” He glared at her before dropping his dark stare to her heaving breasts.

She sucked in a breath as Raiden traced one finger down from her navel to her freshly waxed mound.

“Did you try to take what is mine to give?”

MF: J.R Ward by far. From the first time I picked up one of her harlequin novels I fell in love and knew I wanted to be just like her. She writes with so much passion and really brings each character to life.

NG: I agree, she's another one of my favorites! Describe your writing process...are you a careful plotter or laid back pantster?

MF: I could never plot, I am horrible at trying to map things out. I work much better knowing the type of story and just letting it flow word by word. I like to be surprised by my writing and sort see what my characters decide to do.

NG: Has your writing process changed since your first book was published?

MF: I think my craft has changed, I think I write much better now of course. We always improve with each book we right and get stronger in our craft. So far I have three books and am finishing up my fourth and I really feel like so much has changed with myself as a writer that even I'm surprised.

NG: What are you working on now?

MF: I am finishing up my contemporary romance about a Navy Seal sent to do a recon mission and ends up finding out he has to bring more than a bad guy home, but had to save the life of woman he has always loved.

NG: Let's talk about your latest release, Midnight Assassins! What's this paranormal romance all about?

MF: It's about a vampire sworn to protect his kind. A sadistic hunter wanting the blood of vampire. One beautiful human caught in the crossfire.

NG: What inspired you to pen this sexy tale?

MF: My love for vampires of course!

NG: Which movie stars would accurately portray your main characters?

MF: Oh this is a good one, lets see Isla Fisher for Annie and I would have to say, Paul Marron the model for Nicholie.

NG: Nice! If you had to add a song/soundtrack to your manuscript what would it be?

MF: Saving able or evanescence, maybe even throw in a few bad company songs and tribute it to Jude who will be making a huge entrance in book 2.

NG: Were there any creative challenges faced and conquered before you wrote, 'The End'?

MF: Oh boy I jumped a huge hurtle here. I was so attached to the main characters that I did not want to end the book itself. I basically had to talk myself into it and tell myself there will be more of them in book 2.

NG: Give me three reasons readers will love Midnight Assassins.

MF: The humor, the intimate love making, and most important the characters.

NG: What's the one thing readers can always count on when picking up one of your books?

MF: Oh good question. I write from my heart. I try so hard to pull the readers in with the Alpha male that we all dream of. So they can expect a lot of desire, action, and most of all an amazing plot that you fall in love with.

Blurb: Annie was definitely not ready for the life that was about to be handed to her. She was dealing with a job she liked, but a boss she hated. She had no family and only one true friend. One horrible day took her life by surprise. Beaten and almost dead she finds her life in the arms of a handsome, over bearing vampire and wants nothing more than to stay put there forever, but can't seem to let go of her past.

Nicholie was definitely on a mission in his life; to kill the hunters that killed his sister Emma, and maintaining his life as an assassin which was more than time consuming. Closing in on a lead, he ends up finding Annie instead, and falls head over heels with this breathtaking human that he wants to make his own, testing his very belief system as a vampire.

Caution! Scintillating Excerpt Below:
His boots crushed the ground beneath him, “One step at a time.” He told himself. “She will make it.”

His heart clenched and cracked like trees in a thunderstorm. The blood was dripping down the side of his arm and rushing to fall to the ground. Even something as simple as her blood and the scent that came from it made his fangs elongate, his nose tickle with excitement, and the bulge in his pants throb. He had to put those thoughts away because she was dying, he could sense it.

“That fucker is gonna die.” Nicholie’s patience was wearing thin, he knew that Jude had it covered but also knew that one kick to that mother fucker’s skull was not good enough for him.

He had to get her to the doc though and only had a few minutes left. She had been beaten hardcore the way his daddy used to beat him and his sister.

There was something about the woman he carried in his arms, something that made his heart beat out of order. Something that made the very core of him want to protect and keep her all to himself. Knowing she was human though made it out of the question. As he braced her body and ran fast toward the mansion, he knew without a doubt as soon as she was well, he would have to let her go. That’s if everything went the way it should but fate just might intervene against his will.

Nicky couldn’t even begin to feel the burn the fast pace was placing on his bones and skin, his muscles were working overtime but his mind was on the woman.
Within five minutes, he had made it fifty miles and up into the mountains where they lived. Stopping long enough at the gate to be buzzed in, Nicky ran straight for the building behind his house where the doc’s quarters were. Passing the rose bushes, he hit the front door, slammed it into the wall and knocked it off its hinges.

“Nicky what the hell are you doing?” As the doc rushed to help him with the woman, he grabbed at Nicholie’s arm and rushed him over to a table in one of the rooms.

The house the doc lived in was about three stories and each level had its own purpose. They however were on the middle level.

“I found her behind the hospital, just behind Shadow Lane. I got the damn bastard right before he pulled his jolly out of his pants.” His breathing never wavered, even though he had run faster than he ever had before.

“Jesus Nicky, you might have got her here right in time.” The doc rushed to his cabinet and pulled out a nineteen-gauge syringe with all the trimmings. As he went back to the woman’s side, he pulled her shirt away from her neck and stuck the needle in the jugular vein. “This will help calm her for a little while so I can examine her.”

He never asked questions when the doc did his duties, but for some reason, him being close to her made his body tense up. As the doc began to check over the woman, he knew he could hear the soft growl rising up in his throat.

The doc looked Nicholie in the eyes. “Steady there tiger—you okay?” Nicky felt the doc’s eyes on his every move, watching the expression on his face, Nicky knew he would get an ear full later. He was already so paranoid about the woman, and for no apparent reason. Just as he watched the doc reach the woman’s arm, Nicky went into panic mode, his chest heaving, a growl rising, suddenly he bared his fangs, “Nicky, I’m not going to hurt her I need to examine her and make sure we can get her to pull through this, okay?”

The growl stopped and his eyes eased back to normal.

“I just—shit, I’m sorry. I don’t know where that came from.”

“She’s human Nicky, you know that right? I mean I can help her and I will just considering the facts but—”

“But nothing, look I know the rules. I will give her head a wash and return her as soon as she’s well.”

Nicky watched as doc returned to the woman’s lifeless body to check her vitals. Right as he reached to take off her clothes, so he could examine the rest of her body for damage, Nicholie grabbed his hand and forced him to stop. This is my woman. Although he knew the doc needed to put a gown on her to begin using the hardcore machines, he felt it was within his territory, that it was his job. “I’ll do that, turn around,” Nicholie snapped faster than a two year old throwing a temper tantrum.

“Are you serious? Look I can’t do my job if you keep stopping me, Nicky, I can’t save her, now let me do what I have too. Get your emotions in check or I will be forced to make you leave. Don’t think I don’t have back-up.”

“I will help then, I will do what needs to be done physically, I don’t want you seeing her naked. I mean you don’t know her—I mean look, just let me take her clothes off and put her gown on then you can turn around.” The doc inhaled a deep breath.

“If it helps, but you mustn’t think I won’t ever see her naked, Nicky. Look what if she needs surgery?” As Nicholie nodded to the doc then took in a nice deep breath to get his emotions under control for the second time. The doc shrugged his shoulders and began to sit his supplies down. “Then do as you wish, Nicky, but as a doctor, I have morals and one of them is to not check out patients.”

“Fine, but do me a favor and stop saying my name so damn much, you’re making me hate it.”

“Good we agree then—I will do my job?” Nicholie nodded.

“Fine.”

They both took off what was left of her clothes, and then he stood there in shock. Yes, he knew the human race, but to be honest, he didn’t know one human being was capable of surviving with this many bruises to their body, her tiny, delicate body. His heart wanted to cry but every single part of him stayed strong as they put her gown on and the doc hooked up her I.V.

“I will keep her on a slow drip of fluids and get an x-ray to see if anything is broken, judging by the look of her head, I would say that she at least cracked her skull. She will need an MRI to make sure that there is no swelling of her brain or other organs for that matter.” Nicholie brushed his finger over the side of her cheek and whispered softly into her ear.

“I don’t know you,” he said, “but I promise I will fix you.” Then stood straight up, knowing he couldn’t keep her even though there was something about her that felt like home.

“She is in good hands, Nicky, you know that.” He gripped the docs arms tight then pulled him closer in a tight embrace and watched as he backed away and bowed to him.

“Why do you do that?” Nicky’s brows burrowed.

“I’m more concerned with our race’s manners and behavior—” Dr. Woods shook his head, “Never mind, it’s called respect,” he said then walked away from Nicky, to the side of the human.

Flash Fiction Friday - Bad Love by Nichelle Gregory

He squeezed her waist as he pulled her closer. Desire arced faster than her addiction to the familiar pull she'd try to resist and fail, willingly giving him another piece of her soul. She knew he was as bad for as the acrid smoke he exhaled into the air.

She wanted him to take her to the peak of passion, knowing he'd crush her with his words or actions moments later.

He loved her.

She loved him.

It was complicated. Sometimes who you loved wasn't always good for you. Love addictions are so hard to break-

I want to thank fellow author Jude Mason for inspiring me to try my hand at flashers... mega short stories of a hundred words or less! I'm not sure I did it right, but Bad Love clocks in at ninety-six words! Writing it was actually a welcome creative break from what I'm currently working on. I hope you enjoyed it!

Three cheers for the weekend!
