Guest Post—“Things That Go Bump” by Piper Denna author PRIVATE DESIRES

Things That Go Bump

 Everybody’s scared of something. Some of us admit to fears readily, while others go for the tough ‘tude and act fearless. I’m kind of afraid of birds. Birds are fine if they’re far away…in trees, where they belong. But I’m not interested in petting or holding them. All those sharp claws and beaks are so…fierce.

Our fears are usually based in experience. For me, the childhood chore of feeding the chickens and gathering eggs was fraught with terror—we had one lone rooster (by accident; he came in an order that was supposed to be all hens) who had no other male bird to fight with, so he fought me. And won every time. I tried facing my fear as an adult, and agreed to hold my mother-in-law’s pet cockatoo, which promptly bit my face. And chased me every time I entered the house. So I’m just fine accepting—and admitting—that I don’t like birds, and I’m scared of them.

Fictional characters often have fears, and we as authors usually force them to face those fears. In the story I’m writing right now, the hero has a phobia of dogs…and of course, the heroine has a huge dog. His fear is cute, though, and I’m sure he’ll get over it (once he confesses to her—and me—what caused the fear).

In Private Desires, Victoria should be afraid of helicopters, but has faced that fear and rides in one all the time. She lives with fear on a daily basis, but projects an aura of cool power. Her need for constant order and her nearly compulsive cleaning show us she’s afraid of anything she can’t control (with good reason), and in an effort to avoid future loss (her greatest fear), she plans to never care for anyone else again. Fortunately for her, Brett is fearless in love, willing to put himself out there again and again, until she’s willing to risk it. It helps that he knows her almost as well as she knows herself, and he doesn’t doubt she loves him…he only needs to convince her.

Private Desires

By

Piper Denna

 

Blurb:

She arranges fantasy fulfillment for a living. Now it’s her turn.

 Victoria has built a world-renowned business at Fantasy Mountain, the resort where no want is too wacky, no urge too unusual, no passion too peculiar. Her ability to create any sexual scenario has granted her everything she could want: power, money, independence. The one thing that remains out of her reach is the man she knows she’ll never have…and he happens to work just down the hall from her.

Brett has all but given up hope of breaching the wall around Victoria’s heart. In fact, he’s engaged to be married back in London in only two months. But he knows Victoria has desires; he’s seen them firsthand.

When a night of passion rekindles old feelings, can he finally fulfill the ultimate fantasy of the woman who’s made it her mission to satisfy everyone’s desires but her own? After all, whatever the erotic dream, it can come true at Fantasy Mountain.

Content Warning: Wild romps, no-holds-barred lust, and deep, meaningful lovemaking. A love story first, sparing no steamy details. Contains glimpses into very kinky fantasies.

 

Review:

AMAZON: Jessica The plot surprised me time and again, and the characters were painfully real and imperfect and sympathetic. Victoria and Britt, and even some of the supporting cast, will stay with me for a long time.

 

Excerpt:

He cradled Vic’s face in his hands, tracing dark circles under her eyes with his thumbs. “If you weren’t out drinking and cavorting with rakes all night, you’d not be so tired, miss,” he teased softly.

She swallowed hard and looked at the floor. “I was in by ten.” Was she hiding something? “I just didn’t…rest well.”

Of course. The damn dreams. She never rested when she went to California, and here he’d been begrudging her the best diversion she had from those nightmares.

“Ah, Vic. I’m sorry.” Her eyes teared up, right before she narrowed them on him. She’d be pissed off now because he felt sorry for her. Already her cheeks were turning that angry pink he so enjoyed. The green eyes squinted smaller, and her jaws tightened under the heels of his hands. Glorious angry, she was. He couldn’t help smiling again, which would only serve to further infuriate her.

She took in a great breath. He knew she intended to spew it back out on him in a flurry of irate words, but he stole it from her first. He kissed her, as he seemed to do more often than he cared to acknowledge, and stalled the angry reply.

Even as his lips brushed against her soft ones, he thought of her kissing another, and his pulse beat faster. The sweet gesture to show her he would sympathize with her whether she liked it or not became a fierce need to make her want him. Instead of a tender, closed-mouth kiss, he forced her lips apart and probed with his tongue. He longed to taste and feel her desire, her need for him and him alone. To have her love him.

He got the desire, at least. She slipped her smooth arms round his neck and matched him move for move. He’d known she would. It was constantly there with them, this physical need. Though she strove to suppress it in the name of business ethics, he could sense it always, carefully hidden. And damn if it didn’t drive him mad to know she wanted him but didn’t love him. Besides, she had more self-control than he did. As usual, she found her senses first and pulled away from him.

“Andrea,” was her breathless one-word way of halting him. It worked famously.

Meet Piper…

Romance is sexy. And often funny, and sometimes tangled up with suspense. Let’s face it: all sorts of things get mixed up with romance in real life.

Piper Denna’s stories are not cut-and-dried romance. Her characters deal with issues female readers can relate to: independence and trust, empowerment, inhibition, an unfaithful partner, motherhood. Sometimes her characters make mistakes, and often her “bad guys” are not 100% bad. She hopes to take the reader on an emotional journey to a happy ending…with enviable sexual encounters along the way.

When she’s not writing, she edits, raises two teens along with her husband, and collects scrapbooking material.

She enjoys books—or movies—with a comedic twist and hopefully a love story with lots of tension, too.

Sexiest parts of a man in Piper’s opinion? The hands and eyes. Shoulders are nice too, and of course, great pecs are never amiss…

Author Bio:

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduate this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing four series of books- The Last Riders, The Dark Souls, The VIP Room, and Biker Bitches series. My favorite book I have written is Soul Of A Woman, which I am hoping to release during the summer of 2014. It took me two years to write, during which I lost my mother, and brother. It’s a book that I truly feel captures the true depths of love a woman can hold for a man. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I am an emotional writer who wants the readers to feel the emotion of the characters they are reading. Because of this, Teased is probably the hardest thing I have written.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best. In the near future I hope to take a weekend break and visit Vegas that will hopefully be this summer. Right now I am typing away on my next story and looking forward to traveling this summer!”

Guest Post–Green-Haired Goth Girl Heroines by Cynthia Sax and check out her new release BREAKING ALL THE RULES

Breaking-All-The-Rules-Cynthia-Sax

.

Green-Haired Goth Girl Heroines

Camille Joplin Trent, the heroine of Breaking All The Rules, isn’t your average erotic romance heroine. She isn’t your average anything. She has green hair, tattoos, and multiple piercings.

Many readers would expect such a woman to work in a tattoo parlor or a bike shop or somewhere else that hires edgy employees. Camille doesn’t do anything anyone expects. She works in a very conservative high tech company, a company with a rigid dress code. I suspect if she worked in a tattoo parlor, she’d have blond hair and wear pale pink suits with matching pumps.

Because Camille is a rebel. She prides herself on not conforming and that means breaking the rules of any organization or group she belongs to.

As she explains

***

Although I no longer wear my temporary tattoos or visible body jewelry, the green hair and the holes in my ears, nose, and bottom lip remain, declaring my rebel status to the world.

This is who I am, who I’ve always been. I break rules. I push people. I don’t fit in anywhere.

***

Camille grew up on a hippie commune, as the hero Nate describes her childhood home. She’s the product of two very rebellious parents. Her beloved parents taught her to question everything, to live by her own rules, to do what she and not society thinks is right.

Camille also uses her appearance to warn others away from her. She’s scared of being rejected, of being hurt or hurting others, so she erects a wall of rebellion around her.

At first glance, Nate, the rigid rule-setting CFO, appears to have nothing in common with Camille. He wears the required suits, looks like one of the corporate clones Camille constantly mocks, won’t do anything without a contract.

However, Nate also makes up his own rules. He won’t, for example, have sex unless he pays for that privilege. His contracts are exactly that—his contracts. He crafts the often unconventional terms to suit his own rules. Like Camille, he keeps others at a distance. While she uses her Goth girl act, he gives them the Iceman freeze out, shutting down conversations before they begin. Yes, Nate is as much of a rebel as Camille is.

I truly believe that we all have a green-haired rebel within us. We might not allow this rebel out to play very often but she’s there, waiting to cause chaos.

When was the last time you let your inner rebel out? What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Breaking All The Rules

By

Cynthia Sax

Releasing April 1st, 2014

 

Blurb:

Nathan Lawford, Blaine Technologies’ chief financial officer, is known as the Iceman. He conducts his personal and business affairs without emotion, never allowing himself to become involved with anyone. When Nate sees something or someone he wants, he negotiates, paying a simple, set monetary price.

Now he wants Camille, the company’s green-haired intern.

Camille Joplin Trent never expected to be paid to pleasure the man of her dreams. She can’t quite figure out why this is a bad thing. Nate is intelligent, handsome, sophisticated—everything she’s ever wanted in a lover and never thought she could have. Their contract is for a month, thirty lust-filled days of making every sexual fantasy they’ve ever had come true. At the end of this month, the rules state that their relationship will end.

Of course, Camille has never been good at following rules.

Cover Reveal–THE ART LOVER by Maggie Wells

The Art Lover, Maggie Wells, erotic romance, Buy the Book Tours

.

The Art Lover, Maggie Wells, Buy the Book Tours, erotic romance.

Blurb:

Starving artist Kelsey Tecato takes being The Templeton Museum’s artist in residence a little too literally. By day, she puts on a show of painting for the crowds that shuffle through the galleries, but at night, her muse runs wild.

Mitch Jameson is a guy’s guy. A cop moonlighting as a security guard, he has little use for the artsy-fartsy stuff, but the mysterious Ms. Tecato’s sexy portraits call to him.

So does an interior alarm.

When Officer Jameson goes to investigate, he finds a paint-splattered goddess working on a self-portrait–in the nude.

A couple tubes of paint and a roll in the drop cloths later, free-spirited Kelsey helps Officer Jameson discover his passion for art.

.

Excerpt:

Forcing himself to put one foot in front of the other, he left the provocative portraits behind and turned toward the west end of the building. The Templeton rambled for nearly a city block but most of the space went unused. Exhibits occupied the open center space of the two-story building joined by a pair of sweeping marble staircases. The east side had been converted to classroom space decades before, but the warren of tiny rooms on the west end were primarily administrative offices and storage.

His heart started to pound when he picked up the murmur of a deep voice. Shifting the flashlight to his left hand, Mitch reached for his sidearm and came up empty. He was a guard tonight, not a cop. His service weapon was locked up safe in his apartment. At the end of the corridor he pulled up short, pressing his back against the wall and tightening his grip on the flashlight. He wore a panic button clipped to his belt but his instincts told him he wasn’t at the panic stage yet. Breathing soft and slow, he closed his eyes and focused his energy on catching a few words. Perhaps he could figure out what the intruders were after before making his presence known.

Thirty seconds passed. His eyes popped open then rolled heavenward as the droning voice segued into a bouncy pop song. The radio. Someone had left a radio playing in one of the offices. Shaking off the rush of adrenaline, Mitch pushed away from the wall and rounded the corner, only to come to a dead stop when he saw the fan of light spilling from the office at the very end of the hall.

Two things he knew for certain: the radio hadn’t been playing when he’d made his post-closing rounds, and that door on the end of the corridor hadn’t been open. He let the barrel of the flashlight slip through his fingers until he gripped the lamp. Wielding his only weapon like a club, he crept toward the door as silently as a guy who clocked in at six-four and two-ten could. Just outside the office, he caught a flash of movement inside the room and quickly pressed his back to the wall.

“About time you showed up.”

A woman. The intruder was a woman and she’d been expecting him. Irked by the presumptuous amusement in her tone, he stepped into the open doorway, prepared to let her have it, and almost swallowed his tongue. Screw the flashing red lights. Alarm bells clamored in his head the moment recognition clicked. Kelsey Tecato. Artist in Residence. Painter of hard-on-inducing nudes. Live and in person, standing in the Templeton Museum after hours.

And naked as the day she was born.

.
