I Wanna Ride: Happy Thorsday

I haven’t posted in a while. Been busy with edits. Just thought I’d do a quick post of a pic I found on Facebook in honor of Thorsday.

Okay, I’ll stop now.

How about you? Do you wanna ride the thunder–from down under–and let him put his hammer down? 😉

And here’s a bonus Thor pic!

Another Night Therapy Teaser Excerpt

Ready for another teaser excerpt from my upcoming novel, Night Therapy? Keep in mind this is still unedited. This little scene between Johnathan and Stephanie takes place after a hot, intimate moment–that you’ll have to wait for the book to read. 😉 Come on. I can’t give away all the good parts.

TNSS: Book 4

TNSS: Book 4

“I…I can’t believe I let this happen.” Lowering her gaze, she shook her head. “It’s wrong.”

He stroked her cheek with his thumb. “In case you didn’t notice, I was the one who started this. I never expected it to go as far as it did, but I’m not sorry. It’s been decades since I let anyone in. I needed this.”

“That’s the problem. You let me in as your therapist. It makes you feel closer to me than you are. That’s why we aren’t allowed to get involved with clients. What you’re feeling…it isn’t what you think it is.”

“And just exactly what do I think it is?”

“I don’t know. A connection. Trust in someone. Being open and vulnerable. And yes, those are probably all there, but not for the reasons that should have led to what we just did. They’re there because you’re supposed to feel safe and supported with me. That’s my job. But it’s not a personal connection. It’s not—”

A fiery kiss burned her lips, and she let out a soft moan into his mouth.

Then he pulled away fast. “No, it’s not personal at all. I suppose you react like that with all your clients.”

Smug asshole. “Stop it. We can’t keep doing this. I—”

Another kiss. He pulled her to him tightly; his strong arms wrapped around her like a security blanket. Warmth and comfort spread through her as if she belonged in those arms. She melted into him, into the desperation of his embrace. The hunger of his kiss.

Paloma Beck’s Erotic PNR Series, The Seven Sin Sisters

Please welcome Paloma Beck to my blog. You won’t want to miss this post about her sexy series…

banner sevensinsisters

Seven Sisters. Seven Sins. And Seven Mates to Redeem them.

Lust | Envy | Greed | Pride | Anger | Sloth | Gluttony

The seven deadly sins are transgressions that hinder spiritual growth. Essentially, to be owned fully by one of the seven deadly sins means to not be able to grow into one’s own potential. This is the very thing that intrigued me. I wanted each sister to carry one of the sins and then began the concept of linking men to their salvation from their sins. How better to tie the two mates together than to have the male be the one who truly rescues her from herself? Is there any greater way to become a hero than this?

But then I read – and read – and read – and there are so many ways the deadly sins can manifest themselves within a person. I didn’t want to take the obvious road so some of the women cope with their sins in a unique way. In Holiday Gem, for example, Gemma carries the soul sin of greed. However, she’s a historical researcher and her greed plays out through a hunger for knowledge. She throws herself into her work and is so hungry for knowledge that the lack of it puts her into panic attacks.

I admit though to being a bit obvious when it came to lust. It was just too good to pass up. In Lustful Cravings, Layla has never experienced lust until she meets her mate. Then he has to work to keep up with her needs. So why not give him a little help, add in another man, and make it a ménage? After all, a woman experiencing lust for the first time has needs. *wink * wink*

There are definite benefits and pitfalls to each of the deadly sins but it’s CONFESSION TIME… tell me which is your favorite and why.

Caliente Blog Hop: Hot Excerpt and Prizes

EDIT: THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER, AND MY WINNERS HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED.

Are you ready for the Caliente Blog Hop? I think it’s getting hot in here because for my contribution, I’m giving away my erotic short story, Auburn Lust–and I’m including a steamy excerpt in this post. There’s also a grand prize giveaway for the entire hop. I’ll tell you more about both of these giveaways and how to enter them at the end of this post. Also, don’t miss the link to the list of all the blogs in the hop at the end of this post. Now, how about that excerpt?

Content Warning 2 smaller

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

Christof’s desires and emotions overwhelmed Rochelle. He kissed her more passionately than ever before. His naked body against hers felt too right. Her mind spun as a swell of feelings swept over her.

Feelings were not a good thing.

But his tender kiss made it impossible to think. He left himself open to her again and she longed to do the same. It was a physical need every bit as powerful as—or maybe even more so than—her lust for him.

Her entire future rested on this one, seemingly-simple decision; give herself to him completely or slam the boundaries back in place before it was too late.

She could not do this. Not yet. I haven’t made it through all these years by allowing my heart to rule me.

But she wanted him desperately. Far too desperately. For that reason alone she had to be strong and do the right thing.

She had to merely do her job.

Ignoring the issue between them, and keeping up her walls, she reached down and guided his cock. He eased in, his hard length filling her and increasing her need.

He feels so good.

Christof kept a gentle, steady pace as he pumped in and out of her. He caressed her face then neck, and finally her breast.

A moan escaped her lips and she lifted her hips. No matter how much she tried to remain unaffected, she couldn’t. He made love to her, and she wanted to give the same to him.

But that would not do.

Rochelle trembled as she tried to hold back. She should toss him off her. She had five hundred years on him and could easily overpower him if she chose.

Then why didn’t she? Why did she hold him tighter? Kiss him harder? And writhe beneath him?

She ran her hands along his back, over his ass, and up again, skimming his sides until he jerked and moaned. The hot friction of his cock moving inside her sent shivers through her. Her heart ached with—

She dug her nails into his back and shoved aside that thought, but she only shook harder trying to deny it. Her control slipped and her walls crashed down.

Christof groaned loudly when her emotions hit him. He wrapped her in his firm embrace while he continued his loving cadence.

Too late to turn back, she returned his affections. She matched his leisurely pace and stroked his skin tenderly. She pulled away from his lips and trailed kisses along his chin and throat.

“Shelly, I need you so,” was all he said before she bit down and sipped at his tangy blood.

His thrusts sped and deepened. She released his neck and moaned, enjoying the intimacy she had rarely permitted herself to share with another.

Maybe for the moment she would allow this. She could replace the boundaries later, when they finished making love.

Just this once…

She writhed up beneath him until each thrust had him filling her completely and built a tingling in her core. His arousal heightened hers, as hers surely did his, creating a never-ending circle of desire.

If it didn’t make them so vulnerable, vampires would certainly do this more often. The shared pleasure was immeasurable.

Emotions swirled and combined with that pleasure until Rochelle finally succumbed and her orgasm ripped through her. Shockwaves went off in her core, her muscles clenching around his hard shaft.

He kissed her quickly then moved to her neck. His fangs glided in sensually and he drank gently. He groaned into her throat as his body quaked. His soft sucking morphed into desperation and his mouth clamped onto her neck tighter while he drank deeper.

After a moment, he eased his fangs out and she relaxed as her orgasm receded. His mouth locked onto hers again. He still felt so good, so right. She would allow this for a while longer. Maybe for the entire night.

Boundaries could wait until morning.

AUBURN LUST

TNSS: Short Story

TNSS: Short Story

Twin courtesan vampires Rochelle and Laureline Montague entertain two of their favorite vampire clients for the evening: Christof Rosenbaum and Donovan Evanko.

Rochelle and Christof have been meeting for centuries but lately the intimacy between them has crossed the line and become personal. Will Rochelle be able to keep her professional boundaries in place or will she give in to her emotions?

Laureline and Donovan’s rendezvous is much less emotional and far rougher, but that’s how they like it. Although, she can’t let Donovan leave after just one time around—even when he is summoned by his Enforcer boss.

In the end, both men are consumed by the auburn-haired beauties in one way or another, and there is no doubt both will be back for more.

This is an erotic short story, not a romance, and it can stand alone. But where it falls within the series timeline is actually right before Nocturnal Surrender.

PRAISE FOR AUBURN LUST

“This is a fun, quick, and window-steaming jaunt that displays a measure more attention to detail than one would expect from an erotic short. With whispers of the larger, overarching story peppered in (the budding romance between unbeating hearts, and a dark vampire overlord threatening to end their debauchery) this well-crafted tale not only satisfies, but might leave most hungry for more.” K. Andersen Smith – Amazon Kindle reviewer.

PRAISE FOR THE NOCTURNAL SURRENDER SERIES

“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.

“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 incredibly hot sex between Bastian & Nicole that makes you weak in the knees & tingly all over.” Sharon – Amazon Kindle reviewer.

Night Therapy Update, and a Post by the Hero, Johnathan McCombs

TNSS: Book 4

TNSS: Book 4

I finally finished the first draft of Night Therapy today. It only took me a week longer than I’d planned, but it did end up about 8,000 words over my expected count so that explains the extra week. Not a big deal. It’s hard to say what the word count will be after revisions, anyway.

My tentative schedule is to work on revisions and have the first beta reads done over the next 4 to 6 weeks, and then I’ll send it off to the editor. Add another 4 to 6 weeks for edits after that. This leaves the month of August for the last beta reads and a final polish. I’m shooting for a release date in early September.

So, to hold you over while awaiting the release, I have a few things planned. First, in case you missed it over at Heartthrob Haven, below is Johnathan’s hero post. I also have an interview with Johnathan that I’ll post at some point, as well as a follow up to that interview. As I do revisions, I’ll post a few more teaser excerpts. And I’ll also be running a giveaway here and there over the next few months.

Now I’m turning this blog over to Johnathan. I’ll warn you, he has an attitude a mile long and likes to use a lot of cuss words. Take it away, Johnathan…

Look, before I even get started, I think you all should know I’m not really a people person. My author, Lorraine Pearl, asked me to come here and do this fu— Uh, I mean, she asked me to come do this hero post. Huh, as if I qualify. Did I mention I’m here against my better judgment? And she had the nerve to make me promise to tone my attitude down. Well fu—

Okay. Sorry. I guess she might have a point. Anyway, my name is Johnathan McCombs. Lorraine said I should tell you a little something about myself, so here goes.

I’m a vampire. Have been for over six hundred years. I’m a loner; happy when it’s just me and my motorcycle. Unfortunately, a few years back I let my sire, Alex, talk me into joining his Enforcer Team to go after rogues who break our laws. Keep it in the family or some shit like that was what he told me.

Sorry again. Like I said, I’m not good at this social thing. Hope you don’t mind the language.

No. That’s a lie. I really don’t give two shits.

Man, Lorraine laughs when I say that since vampires don’t need to use the bathroom.

Now where was I? Oh, yeah. Telling you about myself. Well, I guess I could sum it up by saying I’m effed up. No, really. The shit that happened before and after I was turned did a number on my head—and apparently on my personality, too.

Alex has been on my ass to talk about it all these years, but it wasn’t until recently that I found the balls to do it.

So now I have this sexy psychotherapist, Stephanie Taylor, who I’ve got the hots for. I’m sure she’d never admit it, but she’s into me, too.

And don’t go getting all pissy like Lorraine does. I’m a vampire. Of course I’m going to use my powers to feel people out. Can I help it if Stephanie’s lust for me is palpable at times? Okay, I actually can turn off my abilities, but when I catch her stealing glances below the belt, how am I supposed to resist?

In any case, none of that matters. She’s human, I’m not. And she’s my therapist—you know, some crazy shit about keeping professional boundaries and it being unethical for her to get involved with a client. Not that she’s said this out loud, but she’s thought it.

Yes, I read her mind. So sue me.

I wouldn’t want anything serious with her, though. Not really my style. But Lorraine has this crazy idea that if I go in there and pour out my soul to Stephanie then we’ll magically fall in love.

Huh. Like I’d ever fall in love.

But I see through all this romance crap. For starters, the chances of me opening up that much are slim to none. Not to mention the fact I know exactly how these romance novels work. Lorraine will put me and Stephanie through all sorts of hell before we can earn our happily ever after.

No. Lorraine is crazy if she thinks any of that will happen. And that’s not even accounting for Stephanie’s resistance to something like that. She’s a good woman and would never compromise her ethical beliefs.

Even if there was a way to break down her walls, there would still be things standing in our way. My issues, her issues—although I am intrigued to find out what pain she’s hiding—and that tiny problem of me being immortal and her mortal.

But the biggest issue would be the fact vampires have just been put on the endangered species list. Not because our numbers have dwindled, but because the Hunters have apparently come up with a plan to take us all out for good. Problem is we can’t get the details on their plan so we can attempt to stop them.

It really sucks—and yeah, I know that was a bad pun. But seriously, just when I decide to start getting my shit together it looks like my life might be cut short. I guess that’s about how it always goes, doesn’t it?

Before I leave, I wanted to tell you a little more about Stephanie. She’s been my therapist for a few months now, and she is the most compassionate woman I’ve ever met. I haven’t hit her with my secret yet, but I plan to tell her I’m a vampire in our next session. I know she’ll be shocked, but I also know I can trust her.

I’ve felt it in her. And I’ve listened to her thoughts a few times to be certain. Don’t get pissy about it like Lorraine does. Vampires have to do these things before we can bring someone into our world. That’s just how it works.

My point is she won’t judge me for my past. She’ll help me deal with it. I’m sure the extent of all I’ve done will put her empathy to the test, but I have no doubt she’ll come through for me. Even though she has deep pain and loneliness inside her—similar to what’s inside me—she’s strong. I can tell she’s survived some type of trauma but can’t quite reach into her mind far enough to find out exactly what.

She’s beautiful outside and in. If things were different, I would love to ease her pain and treat her like a queen. I’d do whatever I could to be her therapy, too. I’d make her forget her past. But something tells me my wonderful personality would fu— Sorry. You get the picture.

Maybe there’s a part of me that hopes Lorraine’s scheme to get us together will work, but I still can’t imagine it will.

There’s a lot more to me and my story, but like I said, I’m not really a people person, and my skin is crawling as I sit here telling you all this. So if you don’t mind, I want to go hop on my V Star and get the hell out of here. You can read the rest of my story when my book, Night Therapy, comes out in a few months.

Oh, there’s one more thing I promised Lorraine I’d tell you. If you want to read about that idiot, Bastian Evanko, you can grab the first books in the series. Even though I have no use for Bastian, I can sort of feel for him because of all the shit he’s gone through.

I only hope Lorraine doesn’t torture me anywhere near as much as she did him.

I’d say thanks for having me here, but it certainly was not my pleasure. Apparently the torture has already begun.

Night Therapy

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?

Fangs Divider copy copy

So what did you think of Johnathan? Even though he doesn’t seem too happy to have done this post, I’m willing to force him to answer your questions if you’d like to leave any with your comments.

If you’d like information and purchase links for the first books in the series, head over to The Nocturnal Surrender Series website.

Heartthrob Haven Hero Post by Vampire Johnathan McCombs

TNSS: Book 4

TNSS: Book 4

That’s right. The time has finally come for my newest hero, Johnathan, to speak his mind. This isn’t an interview but a post straight from the vampire himself. Damn, that guy has an attitude.

If you want to learn more about Johnathan and the upcoming novel he is in, Night Therapy, head over to Heartthrob Haven to see what he has to say.

In case you’d like to see a few more pics of this hunk of a vampire, I’ve added some below. This is model Francis J Cura. I snatched up a good many pics of him through dreamstime.com. You’ve probably seen him on a lot of covers, but I knew he was my Johnathan the second I saw him.

WIP Erotic Excerpt Teaser #2: Night Therapy

I’m very close to finishing the first draft of Night Therapy. I’ve already hit my goal of 60,000 words, but I have at least 2 or 3 more chapters left to write. When I wrote this scene, I couldn’t resist sharing. Keep in mind this is still a rough draft and is unedited.

TNSS: Book 4

TNSS: Book 4

Content Warning 2 smaller

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

Was Stephanie ready to feed fresh without killing? Johnathan couldn’t call his sire and ask what to do with Alex talking to the Elders at the moment. Besides, it was time he fucking manned up and stopped crawling to Alex every time something difficult happened.

“I’ll wait for my offspring to finish freshening up before I feed. Please, have a seat in the meantime.” He gestured to chairs in front of the fireplace at the foot of the bed.

Apparently the two spoke English well enough to understand him because they smiled and did as he suggested.

He should probably give Stephanie a heads up so she didn’t walk out in just a towel…or less. Wishful thinking, but just in case he knocked on the door and entered the bathroom before she answered then closed the door behind him.

“Hey, Steph. Uh, I thought you should know our meals arrived. Alive.”

The shower door opened a bit, and Stephanie’s shampoo-covered head popped out. “Alive? As in they have to stay that way?”

“Yep. Ready for a crash course in how to feed fresh without killing?” Johnathan tried to act nonchalant, as if he believed she could handle this.

She wiped soap away from her eyes. “Do you think I’m ready?”

I hope you are. “Of course. Look at all you’ve done so far. Most newly-turned vamps can’t do half of what you can.”

“Oh, okay then. I trust your judgment. I’ll be out in a few minutes.” She closed the shower door abruptly, and he took the cue to get the hell out of there.

While he waited, he stared out the tinted, oversized window at the wide expanse of manicured grounds behind the manor. Having small talk with the food didn’t seem appropriate. It was easier to keep his back to them and not think about what might happen if Stephanie was unable to stop herself before one of them died.

When the bathroom door opened, he breathed deep and steeled himself to teach his offspring. But when he turned to face her, she took his unneeded breath away.

Her tight black pants and low-cut shirt made his cock tingle. The way her damp hair framed her beautiful face, accentuating her amber eyes and full, pink lips had his equally-unnecessary heartbeat thundering.

She glanced to the pair in front of the fireplace then her gaze landed squarely on him. When she licked her lips, ending by sucking in her lower one, and her eyes roamed his body, it was all he could do not to kick their food out of the room and throw her on the bed to ravish her.

He cleared his throat even as his fangs extended and his eyes shifted. “We should, uh…feed so they can get back to their rooms.”

Stephanie looked back to the mortals, her eyes turning silver with a different kind of hunger than when she had stared at him. He crossed the room before she could act on any urges she might have had. As he stepped in front of her, her mouth opened, her fangs prominently displayed.

He clasped her shoulders and whispered too low for anyone but her to hear. “You must calm your impulses. Use what Alex taught you. They belong to the Elders so you have to be gentle.”

After a few tense moments, she focused on Johnathan, the single-minded haze of the hunt gone from her silvery stare. She smiled and caressed his cheek. “I’m ready.”

He cradled her hand and guided her to their waiting meals. Part of him wanted to see them as people, but he had to suppress it. The Elders were old-school vamps and their world was entirely different than life in Lansford.

Plus, he had to teach Stephanie properly. “I will feed first.” He hoped she understood the implied, so you can see how it’s done.

The last thing he wanted was to watch a mortal male get off on her feeding from him, so Johnathan motioned for the man to stand. Johnathan knew how these willing-donor situations worked. The humans truly enjoyed being meals for immortals.

Not gonna happen with my woman.

Shit, he was being his same old controlling, asshole self.

He’d work more on that later. Thankfully, the timing wasn’t appropriate for his personality issues to take precedence.

Facing Stephanie so she would be able to see exactly what he did–and so he could maintain eye contact with her–he placed his hand behind the man’s neck and pulled him to his lips. As he sank his fangs into his meal’s flesh, something shifted inside Johnathan. He locked gazes with Stephanie, and for the first time in his immortal life, he didn’t feel as if he were stumbling aimlessly through his existence.

He didn’t feel lost and alone.

Warm, tangy blood filled his mouth as he sucked then it glided down his throat. The man moaned in his arms, arousal shooting off the mortal in waves. Apparently he was used to being fed on by male vampires. Johnathan opted not to listen to his thoughts, though.

If he wasn’t mistaken, Johnathan could have sworn a feeling of peace enveloped him for a few seconds–like the reverie his sire always spoke of.

Stephanie inched closer, her eyes still clear of the bloodlust. She watched intently, licking her lips occasionally. Her hand slithered along Johnathan’s arm and upward into his hair. She closed the space between them until her lips touched his cheek in a soft kiss. Then she shut her eyes as if to focus on another of her senses, most likely listening to the male’s heartbeat.

Another moan emanated from the man when Johnathan sucked in again. The ticking heart in the human’s chest slowed ever so slightly and dizziness radiated from him. Johnathan swallowed one last time then pulled his fangs out completely, sucking at the lingering blood on the man’s skin. With a slow lick, he sealed the two puncture wounds, and then helped the male back to his seat. A look of pure bliss softened the mortal’s masculine features.

The moment Johnathan turned back to Stephanie, she threaded her fingers in his hair again and tugged him to her. Her kiss was passionate, erotic, and his cock reacted, growing hard immediately.

If all the chaos and past issues were put to rest, they could have an amazing life together.

She backed away too quickly. “I’m hungry.”

The husky sexiness in her voice didn’t help with the problem in his jeans. He kept his back to their meals but motioned for the woman to stand.

Hell, he hadn’t thought it through this far. If the woman became as aroused as the man had, the sight of Stephanie taking her neck would drive him over the edge.

As he offered the female to Stephanie, he reminded her to be gentle, his voice raspy.

When she winked at him and slipped her arm around the woman’s waist, he knew he was in for it. Stephanie used her free hand to brush her meal’s long dark hair aside to expose her slender neck.

Johnathan’s cock ached.

Stephanie’s lips parted and she leaned into the woman’s throat but kept her eyes fixed on his. She sank her fangs in, and as she sucked, she pulled the woman tighter, holding the small of her back and grasping her hair. The woman moaned and writhed in Stephanie’s arms.

Johnathan scrubbed a hand over his face. Damn, she’s trying to kill me.

Was it getting hot in there? Was the oxygen being sucked out of the room?

Granted, he didn’t need it to survive, but at that moment, it felt like he’d suffocate from his inability to breathe.

He swallowed the lump in his throat and moved closer just as she had done.

Two could play at this game.

He fisted Stephanie’s hair and licked a trail along her throat. If she were more experienced and he didn’t have to worry she might drink her meal to death, he’d have bitten into her instead of just kissing where he had licked.

This time, Stephanie moaned, and Johnathan fought the urge to rip the woman out of her arms. He stifled a groan then did his best to refocus his attention on the mortal’s heartbeat and feelings.

A few seconds later, it was time for Stephanie to stop, but before he could tell her, she released the female. Stephanie’s tongue darted out and dragged a slow line along the woman’s throat, eliciting another moan as her wounds healed.

Johnathan let go of Stephanie and clenched his fist, biting back his desire.

Stephanie helped the woman sit then looked to Johnathan and licked her lips–slowly. “How did I do?”

A strangled noise escaped him, as did the ability to form coherent words. She laughed and sauntered to the bed. After she sat, she ran her hand suggestively up and down the corner post.

He pressed his lips together, his fangs digging in the bottom one, trying like hell to reign in his libido.

Now what I want to know is, for those of you who aren’t turned off by the blood drinking, did you find this scene erotic or sensual at all? And if you normally are put off by the blood drinking, were you able to enjoy this scene anyway?
