Nothing Lasts Forever Blurb:

TNSS: Book 1

TNSS: Book 1

In 1812 England, after nearly eight centuries of immortal life, Bastian Evanko has finally found the woman he wants to spend forever with. Now he is ready to reveal his secret to her, to tell her he is a vampire. But past experience has shown him mortal women may not be able to accept him for what he is. He’s had his share of heartbreak and is hoping this time will be different.

Elise McNeil loves Bastian with all her heart and can’t wait to share her life with him, to have a family with him. But when he shows her the monster he hides inside, she is devastated because he lied to her the entire time he courted her. She is unsure if she can trust him, but more importantly, she believes he may be evil and incapable of loving her as he claims to.

As if their situation isn’t complicated enough, Elise has a secret of her own. Her brother Jacob is a vampire Hunter. When the two men come face-to-face after Jacob and Elise’s parents go missing, will she keep Bastian’s secret or betray him for her family’s sake? Can Bastian save her from the ruling vampire Elders if she breaks their laws by revealing his secret? Or will the couple find out the hard way that nothing lasts forever?

Warning: This novelette is a romantic tragedy—with a tragic ending—but the rest of the books in this series will have happy endings.

WIP Erotic Excerpt Teaser: Night Therapy

TNSS: Book 4

TNSS: Book 4

I had planned on waiting to start posting teasers from Night Therapy since I won’t have it ready for release until late summer, but when I wrote this scene, I couldn’t resist. Keep in mind this is still a rough draft and is unedited.

In this scene, Johnathan and Stephanie are preparing to make love for the first time, but they each have such strong personalities that they clash at times. I must admit that I’m falling for these characters even more with each chapter I write. If you liked Bastian and Nicole, then you’ll love Johnathan and Stephanie, too.

But don’t worry, Bastian and Nicole are still around in Night Therapy–and the entire series.

WARNING: THIS IS AN ADULT EXCERPT AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR ANYONE UNDER 18.

Still pinning her arms over her head, he slipped his free hand down until he teased the sensitive skin just above the waistline of her pants. After easing inside the material, he walked his fingers slowly along her swollen flesh, dipping one then two inside her slightly. She arched into his touch, but he stopped his maddening motion in response.

“No. You had your chance. Now I’m going to make you pay.” He pulled his hand from her pants and licked his fingers then plunged them back inside the fabric and palmed her entire pussy. “Mine,” was all he growled before his fingers shot inside her.

He was so damn sexy when that other side of him took over. Dominating, but somehow still vulnerable and sweet. It made no sense that he could be such a dichotomy, but then again, she was now, too.

Apparently he wasn’t happy with her mind wondering off again because he hissed her name and thrust his fingers in and out with a speed she had never imagined possible. With a vampire like Johnathan, she’d never need batteries again. His fingers vibrated in her core and coherent thoughts fled.

She might have cried out, moaned, or something, but as her eyelids fluttered open and closed, she couldn’t comprehend anything except the electric sensations shooting through her body.

His thumb massaged her clit relentlessly, pulsating at times. Just as the muscles in her core clamped down, he stopped abruptly and removed his hand to lick his fingers once more.

Short pants leapt from her mouth. She was right on the verge of orgasm…and he’d left her there writhing in need.

Cruel bastard.

Manday Hotties: Sexy Cowboys

Manday Hotties Hop

Manday Hotties Hop

 

It’s time for another edition of Manday Hotties. It’s been a while since my last post for this blog hop hosted by author Felicity Heaton, but my blog has been pretty busy lately. I finally have some space not scheduled for other posts so I figured it was time for some more hotties.

When you’re through looking at these hotties, be sure to head over to Felicity’s website for the list of other blogs in the hop.

Don’t forget to leave a comment after you look at the hotties and let me know if you liked them. Are you into cowboys? If not, did these guys change your mind? I know I wouldn’t mind a roll in the hay with any of them. 😉

Okay, you’re here to see sexy cowboys, not read, right? I won’t make you wait any longer. Enjoy!

Midnight Confessions: Excerpt 1

TNSS: Book 3

TNSS: Book 3

Nicole intentionally showed up at Bastian’s house unannounced and it had paid off. She licked her lips when he opened the door. He must have just finished showering and not had enough time to dress properly—or to dry off completely.

It was her lucky night.

Most of the time he preferred to meet her at the sanguinarian nightclub, Nocturnal Surrender, and therefore had those damn vampiric contacts and fangs in. There had only been a handful of times in the few months they’d dated when she had seen him without them. But tonight, although his mesmerizing sapphire gaze drew her in, the lack of vampire prosthetics took a backseat to something else.

His body-builder frame filled the doorway, covered only by low-riding jogging shorts that deliciously clung to his hips. The defined cuts of his abdomen drew her gaze to the patch of hair teasing at the edge of the material. Lower, the perfectly outlined bulge begged to be touched. Somehow she wrenched her attention away from what hid beneath his shorts and examined him further.

His broad chest glistened, his muscles flexed, his golden hair was slung wet and sexy against his stubble-covered face, and he held a damp towel. “Nicole!” His eyes grew wide. “Why didn’t you tell me you were coming? I’d have—”

She held her fingers to his lips as she stepped forward, giving him no choice but to back up. After making her way inside, she closed the door behind her. “Oh no. If I’d have warned you, you would’ve wanted to meet at your brother’s club even though it’s your night off. I barely ever get to see you outside of that place.” To see the real Bastian. “And besides, I definitely like how you look when I catch you by surprise.”

A flash of heat spread through her as her eyes roamed over him once more. She ran her hands along his warm arms then slid them inward to caress his hard pecs. The woodsy scent of his cologne filled her nostrils. She wanted to bury her head in his chest and breathe him in. To have him wrap his arms around her and hold her so tight there would be no space between them. To feel him hard against her.

As if in response, he dropped the towel, grunted, and pinned her to the door before she could blink. His long body pressed into her exactly how she’d wanted. He grabbed her arms and raised them over her head, holding them together with one hand. The longing in his eyes—the fire—burned her to the core.

With his free hand, he feathered his fingers down the sensitive flesh on the underside of her arm. The touch so soft it almost tickled. When his hand came to rest at her side, right at her breast, he slipped his thumb between their bodies and played with her nipple.

Her heart sped. A deep breath helped calm her momentarily until she caught another whiff of his spicy scent. He touched her chin softly, tilted her head upward, and brushed his full lips over hers. Slipping his hand behind her head, he fisted her hair and pushed his hard shaft against her belly.

He groaned, only it wasn’t his normal pleasured sound. More like he was in pain. He pulled away even faster than he’d closed in.

Nicole dropped her arms, let out the breath she hadn’t realized she’d been holding, and panted for a few seconds. Bastian bolted out of the foyer and into the living room before she steadied herself enough to walk.

By the time she entered the room, he stood at the brick fireplace with his back to her, one arm outstretched, hand on the mantle. He leaned on it, breathing heavy. She stopped, unsure if she should give him a minute or go to him and see if he needed help.

“Bastian, are you okay?” Her voice cracked from concern.

He cleared his throat and held up his hand as if to tell her to stay back. “Just give me a minute. I’ll be fine.”

The rasp in his voice made her heart sink. He didn’t sound fine at all. Both his hands were planted on the mantel now. He coughed a few times.

She ran to his side and rubbed his back. “What is it? What’s wrong?”

After a few deep breaths, he lowered his arms and stood up straight. “Nothing. Give me a little space, will you?” He strode away without turning to her.

She followed as he retrieved the towel, but when he ignored her and charged up the stairs, she looked around dumbfounded. He’d never been short with her like that. She clenched her fists and gritted her teeth, fighting back tears.

What did I do wrong?

Not wanting to be the pushy girlfriend, she gave him the space he’d asked for and waited in the living room.

Her single visit to his house before this had lasted only five minutes. They had come back from Nocturnal Surrender, and he had stopped at home to remove his contacts and fangs before they went dancing. He hadn’t taken the time to show her around because they were having such a good time and wanted to get on with their date.

A quick glance around the room didn’t offer much new information about her lover. There were no pictures, no decorations or knickknacks—not that she thought someone like Bastian would have those. The only sign of the man who lived there was an empty beer bottle on the dark coffee table.

She hadn’t noticed the first time, but the theme of the entire room was dark. Brown leather couch and chairs, mocha walls, wood floor. Even the curtains looked more like they were meant to keep the sun out rather than make the place homey.

The room almost gave her the creeps. She sat on the edge of the couch, bouncing her leg. Maybe it’s because he hasn’t lived here long enough to spruce up the place.

That had to be it.

Still, she needed to get out of the living room. Nearly fifteen minutes had gone by and Bastian hadn’t come back down. She went out to the hall and called for him but got no response. In fact, she hadn’t heard any sounds at all since he’d ran up there.

Could something have happened to him? What if he needed help?

She bit her lip and paced, contemplating if she should invade his privacy and go find out.

What the hell am I doing? He could be lying up there having a heart attack or something. Sure it was unlikely for someone so young and healthy, but what if?

She took a deep breath and let it out with a sigh then headed upstairs to take care of her man.

“The chemistry between Bastian and Nicole is off the charts HAWT! WOW!! The world building is interesting and the plot is very intriguing. I love the author’s writing style and the editing was spot on. If you are a fan of Erotic PNR, you are going to love this series. It’s kind of like Laura Wright meets Lora Leigh with a pinch of JR Ward thrown in the mix.” Danie – Amazon Kindle reviewer about Nocturnal Surrender.

“I am digging this Novella series by Lorraine Pearl. I finished Nocturnal Surrender & immediately purchase the next book in the series, Midnight Confessions. Great back story, character & story development. Oh, and let’s not skip over the hot and I mean incredibily hot sex between Bastian & Nicole that makes you weak in the knees & tingly all over.” Sharon – Amazon Kindle reviewer about Nocturnal Surrender.

TNSS: Book 4

Vampire Johnathan McCombs has spent the last century isolating from humanity whenever possible, trying to come to terms with a past that haunts him. When he finally realizes he needs help dealing with his issues, he seeks out a mortal psychologist, hoping her ethical boundaries of confidentiality will allow him to reveal his secrets. He tries to ignore his growing attraction for his therapist, but when circumstances throw them together outside the professional setting of her office, will he be able to contain his passion?

Psychologist Stephanie Taylor connects with her clients because personal experience has made her understand what heartache and trauma do to a person. But when her hot new client drops the bomb on her that he is a vampire, she has no idea what to do or how to react. Now she must look at her life in a whole new light. She has inadvertently put her life in danger and become part of a dark world she thought was only pretend.

In one night, everything changes. Old rivals pull Stephanie into their fight, and Johnathan must make a life or death decision. But can Stephanie forgive him for the irreversible choice he makes with her life? Can the couple find peace with their individual problems to have a chance at a lasting relationship? And how will the brewing war between vampires and Hunters affect them?

The Nocturnal Surrender Series Updates

This is just going to be a short update post. I recently updated the BOOKS PAGE of The Nocturnal Surrender Series website. I added covers and some information for the remaining books in the series. You’ll also see that I am halfway through writing the next book in the series, Night Therapy. I love the hero, Johnathan McCombs. He’s got an attitude a mile long, rides a motorcycle, but is lonely and looking for love–even if he doesn’t realize it.

So head over and check out the updates with the link above and scroll down to the Upcoming Novels section. Hopefully it gets you a little more excited for the upcoming books in the series. I know having it to look at keeps me going because I can’t wait to write all those awesome stories I have outlined. Wait until you see what happens and how the series ends.

After you look at the covers and read the little bit of information for each book, come back over here and let me know what you think. I’d love your input. Are the covers hot enough for you? Did the little teasers make you want to know more?

Had to reblog this. One of my favorite scenes from Moonlight. I love Mick so much, and I’d love to have him sucking on me like that. No wonder Beth was pissed. Mick St. John is the best vampire ever!!! And Alex played him perfectly.

Alex O´Loughlin ~ An Intense Study

One of the most memorable scenes of Moonlight, perhaps. So much erotica in Alex´s tongue action! Oh boy did Alex pull off this blood tasting to it´s full potential…only to be interrupted by Beth! Oopsie 😳  I can´t blame her for getting jealous, wouldn´t we all have been, in her place.   Btw kind of cool how they made Mick´s eyes change colour so smoothly 🙂
