Twisted by Love and Kinky Neighbors Two Excerpts!

I've talked about my desire to write a reincarnation story a lot. And now it's becoming a reality. I even have a cover! I absolutely adore the cover Rae Monet did for me for Twisted By Love, Reincarnation Tales, Book 1. The first draft is complete so I hope to have this book out sometime in August! It’s a sexy tale with a dash of suspense. Here’s a blurb to pique your interest.


A love that spans lifetimes, an evil that has followed them through the ages...

Bern Daniels doesn’t believe in ghosts, UFOs, or reincarnation, but when he sees Livie Scott, it’s as if he’s known her forever. Now he can’t get her out of his mind. He wants her in his bed and in his life. For keeps.

Livie is unaccountably drawn to the tall, dark stranger. He literally sweeps her off her feet. And Livie is oh so willing to let him. But her sister Toni is planted firmly in her path to happiness. She’s had to choose between Toni and her man before; is she destined to repeat the same twisted game with her sister over and over?

When Livie and Bern brave the obstacles between them, they soon discover there are shadows lurking from their past, past lives that is, which threaten everything they believe in, everything they want. And even their lives.
Hmm, so how does the snake on the cover fit into the story? Livie is plagued by recurring nightmares. And guess what image is extremely prominent in those dreams! Here’s a little excerpt to give you an idea:

Excerpt (unedited)

Livie buried her arms elbow deep in the warm, soapy water. She loved doing dishes by hand, as odd as that sounded. Her fingers wrinkled, and it probably wreaked havoc on her manicure, but the water warmed her straight through to her toes. She loved a clean kitchen. She loved order and neatness and everything in its proper place. She loved an established routine and—

Something hit her on the cheek with a splat, slid down her face, and landed with a plop in the water, sinking before she actually saw what it was. She brushed her cheek with a wet hand, soap suds settling close to her eye. She wiped those off with her shoulder, then wallowed in the water searching for what had hit her.

Something slimy slithered across her fingers and skittered away. She jerked, water splashing over the edges of the sink. In the kitchen doorway, her sister giggled. A girlish giggle laced with malice. Another watery splat, this time on the back of her head, and the thing, whatever it was, slid down her neck into her blouse.

Just then, the one in the sink poked its head above the water. A snake, a slimy, horrible, fat snake with huge fangs that sank into the soft flesh between her thumb and forefinger.

Livie started screaming when she felt the snake down her blouse start to wriggle and slither all over her, biting...

“Wake up, Livie.” Toni shook her.

Livie woke to realize her nightgown was tangled around her legs and the snakes were only in her nightmare.

“Je-sus. What’s wrong with you?” Toni hunkered down on her pillow and stared. “I thought you were going to start screaming out loud any moment, instead of just that weird, awful moaning.”

Her throat dry and tight, Livie laid there a moment, letting her breathing return to normal. She hated reptiles: lizards, frogs, slugs, banana slugs, but most especially snakes. Spiders were okay, as long as they didn’t get in her hair or her clothes. But snakes were the worst, and the worst of the worst was not being able to get them off. This was the second night in a row she’d had a similar nightmare.

Hope you enjoyed that scary little excerpt! And if that’s not enough, coming up, I’ve also got a sequel to Kinky Neighbors. So many people asked, and now you’ve got it, Kinky Neighbors Two: Cat and Logan’s Just Desserts. I love the cover Rae made for the second book. It has the same flavor as the first book (cover by Rosemary Gunn), but the photo is so Cat, that sneaky little look in her eye. Here’s something to whet your appetite:
The Mitchells and the Harts, kinky next-door neighbors, a little wife-swapping and some very hot foursome sex. But things didn’t go quite as planned for these kinky neighbors...

Now, in Kinky Neighbors Two, find out where these two naughty couples are now and what kinky adventures they’ve gotten themselves into. Will they all have a happy ending? Will they go back to the way things were? Is that even possible? Or will someone get their just desserts?

Kinky Neighbors Two: Cat and Logan’s Just Desserts

Excerpt (unedited)

“Baby, this is going to be so good,” Cat purred in his ear as she knotted the rope around his wrist and tied his left hand to the bed post.

Logan Hart had no doubt it would be good. Cat was an extraordinary lover with a filthy mind. Nothing was taboo. He’d had her every way a man possibly could. And he’d let her do things to him that his ex-wife didn’t even know could be done. Alexis wasn’t a prude, but until the foursome they’d started last year in Tahoe, she’d been pretty vanilla, her wild and crazy moments few and far between.

Cat crawled over his belly, the crotch of her panties caressing his cock. “Baby, baby,” she cooed, “You’re already hard.”

“Hell yeah,” he said. Naked, hard, and ready for anything. Cat wore a skimpy little sundress and panties, that was all. She’d been sunning in the backyard during the afternoon, and the hot August rays had left her skin still warm to the touch.

Cat ran a few degrees hotter than most, in more ways than one. That heat was the reason for his divorce. And hers. After they’d started the whole wife-swapping thing, he couldn’t get enough of her. Personally, he couldn’t really see the difference between fucking Cat in front of Alexis versus fucking her in the afternoon when Alexis was at work. How could that be betrayal? Yet both Alexis and Cat’s husband, Drew, had seen it differently. So now he was divorced and living with Cat. Ah, the changes a year wrought.

With both his hands now secured, Cat crawled down the end of the bed. She hiked her dress up over her firm ass, and he could see the dampness of her panties.

“How about a little suck?” he cajoled. “I promise not to come.”

From the bottom of the bed, where she was working on restraining his legs, Cat shot him a sultry look and shook her finger at him. “Uh-uh-uh. No samples. I want you harder and hotter than you’ve ever been.”

They hadn’t had sex in three days. She hadn’t even let him whack off. She wanted him crazy with need for her little surprise. He couldn’t wait to find out what it was.

“I’m dying here.” Those three days had been a killer.

--------------------
That naughty Cat, what has she got planned for Logan? In the coming weeks, I’m going to do Kinky Neighbors Two on the blog, just like I did the first book. You’ll be able to buy it if you want it all at once, but if you’re patient, you’ll get the whole thing in chapters on the blog. More on the date for that coming up.

I’ve got an announcement! I’ve just signed a new two-book contract with Berkley Heat. The books will be in the same vein as The Principal’s Office, with heroines over 35 and they will feature some elements of bondage. Actually I call it bondage lite, with a little spanking, a little tying up, that kind of thing. One of the things I like to do is add romance to every-day life, so the stories will be more than sex, sex, sex. You can expect to see those books starting in the latter half of 2013.

And a little bit of promo! July brings us Smashwords summer/winter sale! You can try Dead to the Max and Double the Pleasure for free!

Thank you, Rustye! I hope you enjoy what these characters came up with for the sequel! It is 9 chapters long, so it will take a couple of months, and it's starts tomorrow! If you don't want to wait, it's 1.49 on all the major sites, though it's not on Kobo or Apple yet, I'm still waiting for those ones to go live.
