BLURB

Reporter Julianne Wallis hasn’t stopped thinking about Kane Bannerman since she seduced him to get a story five years ago. Now she’s back for a second story, but this time she wants more than sex from Kane. She wants the secret he is hiding.

Kane is part of a group of friends financing the efforts to put a stop to The Madeline Project. The program now has a mind of its own, thanks to a virus called Tommy Twister. These men have power, resources, and money, but they’re as ruthless and possessive as the storms ravaging Earth.

They call themselves the Weathermen…
 

ADULT EXCERPT

Kane teased her pussy lips with feathery touches from both his fingers and his tongue until she was out of her mind with need. She writhed on the bed and whimpered, but he didn’t do so much as spread her pussy lips or touch her clit. She couldn’t take it any longer. “Please, Kane. Please!”

He lifted his head and grinned, and she let out a cry of frustration. “Please, what? Tell me what you want, Julianne.”

“Oh my God, seriously? Fuck me. Lick me. Suck me. Shove your fingers inside me. Anything!”

“What will you give me in return?”

“What?” She was hallucinating. That was the only logical explanation. Was the man even human?

“I asked what you’ll give me in return. I’ve given you two stories, and you’re naked with your wrists tied together. What do I get out of this?”

“A naked woman tied up in your bed.”

He shook his head. “Not good enough. If I do what you want, what will you do for me?”

She narrowed her eyes as shivers ran up and down her spine. Decadent images raced through her mind. Exactly how kinky was Kane Bannerman? “What do you want?”

He brushed a hand up one thigh and down the other, and Julianne couldn’t stop the moan in time. The smug grin he gave her should have angered her, but all it did was fuel her excitement. “Are you sure you want to know?”

“Yes!” He was torturing her with the mere promise of sex.

Kane flipped her onto her stomach before she could do more than let out a breath. He caressed her ass cheeks, and then he smacked each one, hard. “This is what I want. You, over my knee, taking a good, old-fashioned spanking because you are such a damn brat, Julianne. When my hand gets tired, I have a paddle to use on your lovely round ass.”

He covered her body with his and turned her face sideways toward his. She had to struggle to take a full breath because she was so aroused she could barely think. His beautiful eyes blazed with desire. “After I spank you and paddle you hard enough to thoroughly punish you for what you’ve done to me, I will fuck you. I will fuck you hard and rough. I will fuck your pussy, your delectable mouth, and your very pretty ass.”

Kane kissed her, shoving his tongue into her mouth, but just as quickly released it, leaving her wanting so much more. “That’s what I want. Your move, gorgeous.”

Blurb:

Once upon a time, a beautiful combat helicopter pilot crashed to the earth. For weeks she lies sleeping, waiting for her princess to wake her from her slumber.

Chris Carlson, her heroine and a shy school teacher, comes to her rescue, by contacting Madame Eve to make all her dreams come true. Little does she know, the one magical kiss that wakes beauty will also start a snowball reaction, one which will change her life forever.

Sometimes, life’s greatest challenges also bring the biggest blessings, and when you walk through fire, it makes you appreciate what you fought for so much more.
Chris is about to step into an inferno.

 

Excerpt:

Chris pulled up in front of the hospital and reached into the center console of her Jeep to pull out the invitation.

Congratulations,

Your date has been arranged. You can meet her at 325 Parkside Drive, Colorado Springs, CO, room 202A. I understand this is rather unconventional, and most dates don’t meet until the 1Night Stand, but this preliminary meeting is necessary. When you are ready to proceed, I will forward more details.

Sincerely,

Madame Eve

No name. No picture. Nothing else to tell her what Madame Eve had planned. Did her date have the details of where they were going and what they were doing? And what did she mean by when you are ready to proceed?

This had to be some kind of mistake. The building didn’t look like any kind of residence she’d seen. Well, not in the traditional sense.

Maybe her date worked here? She read the cream-colored card again and flicked her thumb back and forth across the edge. With a sigh, she tossed it onto the passenger seat. Okay…right address. So, what are you waiting for? This is what you’ve wanted your entire life.

She opened the door and slid out. A nurse, pushing a wheelchair with a double amputee who wore dog tags, approached, stopping her cold. Attractive. Ice seemed to grip Chris, gluing her soles to the parking lot. She wanted to jump back in the Jeep and run, but, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t move, let alone breathe.

“Good morning,” the nurse said and continued on by.

“Morning.” The tension leaked from her shoulders, flowing away. Chris blinked and then twisted to watch them go. The woman in bright-pink scrubs wheeled her patient toward a mini-park off to the side, without looking back. No. The nurse didn’t look like what she’d described as her ideal woman. Too…girly. Silly to assume her date would come out to meet her with a witness. Oh hell. She hadn’t even made it to the front door, and she’d already freaked. This didn’t bode well at all.

She ran her sweaty palms down the front of her denim shorts and took a deep breath, replenishing her courage. Time to stop pretending—hiding. “I can do this.” Chris fisted her hands at her sides. A public location.She surveyed the area, taking it all in. Everywhere around her—people.Seriously? She’d wanted to take baby steps into the same-sex dating world, come out of the closet slowly. Had to. Her career depended on it, and she’d told Madame Eve she needed to be discreet.

So why here? There couldn’t be a more public place. Her stomach churning, she swallowed the lump forming in her throat. Why am I doing this?

No matter what people said, the support gays and lesbians received from the stars and media didn’t mean anything in small town America. In her world, kindergarten teachers weren’t lesbians. She’d struggled with this tug-of-war between her professional and personal life for four years, until her sister came right out and told her she knew.

LIVING
DEAD GIRL
(BOOK #1, LIVING DEAD WORLD SERIES)

Jen MacLellan has hit a dead
end…
Jen knows tattooed, blue-haired Jack Norris is
trouble the minute he opens his front door. And being a mortician in the avante
garde East Side of Providence, Jen has seen a lot. Jack has recruited Jen’s
teenage brother Drew to play drums for his less-than-respectable punk band, and
Jen has no choice but to follow their gigs to keep her little brother out of
trouble. But when Drew goes missing, she finds herself in the awkward position
of asking for Jack’s help. Shocked that he agrees, Jen decides she may have
misjudged him. Worse, she might even like him.

But when Jen is brutally attacked, she awakens
in the hospital where a Sid Vicious look-alike greets her with the news: she’s
dead, and he’s the reaper assigned to take her away. Yeah, not so much. Refusing
to leave, Jen’s spirit watches helplessly as her loved ones suffer, powerless
to ease her family’s grief or prevent the police from accusing Jack of her
murder. Desperate to help them, Jen convinces the reaper to bring her back. But
reanimating corpses isn’t as easy as it looks, and neither is finding a killer
before it’s too late…


REAPER
MADNESS
(BOOK #2, LIVING DEAD WORLD SERIES)

This isn’t the afterlife she
expected…
Jen MacLellan can’t get the hang of being a reaper. She’s been separated from Jack,
the man she loves, and is stuck with an annoying telepathic link to her
ill-tempered mentor, Sam. Now Death is breathing down her neck, promising to
remove that annoying link if she gives him what he wants. But when reapers
begin to disappear back on earth, leaving behind walking, talking dead people,
Jen and Sam are thrust into a dangerous mission to recapture the souls, and a
passionate physical relationship that complicates everything.

Jack Norris has no memory prior to waking up on the half-demon Nulcifer’s couch
six months earlier. As he begins to investigate his past, he discovers a string
of past lives tied together by a beautiful, mysterious brunette. Who is she?
And why does finding her seem like a life or death proposition?

When Sam falls victim to fate during a routine visit to earth, Jen’s
devastated. Desperate to get him back, she runs smack into the man she never
thought she’d see again—Jack. She tries to keep her distance, but there’s no
time to be awkward if they want to save Sam. When sinister plots are revealed,
and betrayals threaten everything, she’s forced to make some tough choices—and
learns that life is just as difficult when you’re dead.

A standalone novel from the Totally Five Star imprint.

An ordinary girl catapulted into an extraordinary world meets two even more extraordinary men—but what will she do when she discovers their sexy secret?

Fiona Gillespie moved to London shortly after graduating to take advantage of the opportunities the capital could offer. However, months later, she’s still living in a horrid flat and working in a grimy East End pub. The problem is, she doesn’t really know what she wants to do, career-wise. So when she happens upon an advertisement for a job at a plush Mayfair hotel, she jumps at the chance. A great deal of determination and a spot of luck land Fiona her dream role.

But working at the Totally Five Star London is just the beginning. She adores the role and flourishes, impressing her bosses and making her increasingly determined to climb the career ladder.

While her career is flying, though, her love life is non-existent. She hasn’t even thought about men, never mind met or dated one for months, so when she bumps into two gorgeous businessmen in the hotel, she’s surprised to find her head has been well and truly turned. Even more surprisingly, they flirt with her—both of them! She’s drawn to James and Logan, despite feeling that they’re way out of her league.

When a misunderstanding leads Fiona to James and Logan’s sumptuous top-floor suite, she has no idea what she’s about to uncover. Scenes of people-trafficking, drug-pushing and wild sex parties all appear in her active imagination. Yet what she actually sees is something she’d never even considered before, something that piques her interest.

After discovering their sexy secret, what will she do with this new-found knowledge?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal play, spanking, sex toys and bondage.

Excerpt:

Continuing to surreptitiously peer at the men over the rim of her glass, it hit her that this was the first time in months that she’d looked at a man with interest, much less two men—and at the same time! But, ready to snatch her gaze away if one of them happened to glance at her, she realized that it wasn’t surprising that the pair had attracted her attention.

The tailored business suits would draw the eye even on an ugly guy. But on these two, the fine clothing was practically an orgasm for the gaze. They sat opposite each other, and their angle to her meant that she had a view of both their profiles—lucky her.

The one to her right had very dark, almost black hair, with a bit of a curl to it, a long straight nose, a trimmed goatee and, if she wasn’t mistaken, deep blue eyes. It was hard to tell for sure from this distance and perspective.

The one on her left had lighter, shorter hair, stubble that by some magical feat still looked smart, and the most sinful lips she’d ever set eyes on. And speaking of eyes, she thought perhaps his were green. What she wouldn’t give to go and check both of them out close up, preferably naked.

Shocked at her own sudden lustful thoughts, she inhaled more than drank another sip of the juice. Unfortunately, it hit her throat all wrong and she almost slammed the glass down as she started to cough. She tried so hard to suppress the cough, eager not to draw attention to herself, that she made it worse. Snatching up the thick linen serviette from the table, she held it to her mouth as she spluttered in a most embarrassing manner, and tears began to roll down her cheeks. By now, she was sure that the whole damn restaurant was staring at her, and she wished the tablecloths reached the floor, like the ones in the restaurant upstairs, so she could hide under the table until she regained her composure.

Swallowing repeatedly to try to soothe her irritated throat, she gasped as a gentle hand laid on her shoulder, which set her off all over again.

“Oh God,” came a voice. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to make you jump. I just wanted to make sure you were all right. See if I could help.”

Unable to speak, Fiona waved a hand to try to signal that she’d be okay, but unless the guy was a mind reader, he’d have no luck figuring that out. Blinking through the tears that marred her vision, her urge to hide underneath the table grew stronger. Christ, it was only the hottie with the blue eyes. And, if she wasn’t mistaken, his sexy friend with the green eyes was also hovering close by, concern etched into his handsome features.

Managing to drag in a breath, she huffed out, “Thank you.”

Just then, Jeremy arrived with a carafe of water, complete with ice, and poured her a glassful. “Here you go, Fiona. Drink this. Are you all right? Anything else I can get you?”

Can Missy deal with her new life, and the affection she is beginning to feel for Draco, or will the past come back to haunt her?
 

Excerpt:

Feeling something warm slide down her neck, she wiped at it with her hand, and saw the bright red blood. Her hands quivering, she looked up and saw her reflection in the mirror. “Oh…God.” She quivered, stumbling back. There was so much blood.

Ronald had begun cutting her for thrills just after they’d become engaged, and not a day went by that she didn’t suffer at his hands.

“Joanne!”

She jumped at the sound of his voice echoing up the stairs and spun around in a desperate need to escape. There was only one door leading from their room, and she could hear him stumbling up the stairs. She had nowhere to run.

“Joanne!” he bellowed.

“No…no…no…” she repeated, shaking her hands as if that would help her think faster.

“You are going to pay for that, you bitch.

She spun around, saw the window. It was her only means of escape. Slinging the backpack over her shoulder, she ran for the window and threw it open. He was getting closer, she could tell by the sound of his voice.

“You think you can hide from me? I know this place like I know the back of my hand. You can’t hide from me.”

She slid one leg through the window, bracing herself on the ledge. Her foot slipped and she cried out in fear as she clung to the ledge. The willow tree outside was too far away, and she knew if she tried to reach it, she would only end up falling.

“You can’t run from me.” His voice slurred from the alcohol he’d indulged in earlier. “You’re mine. Mine!” he screamed, moving closer to the window.

She looked down. If she didn’t let herself go, he would drag her through the window and back into the house. He would finish the job he had started. He would kill her.

Closing her eyes tight, inhaling deeply, she released her hold and let herself fall. “Don’t let me die,” she pleaded, as she dropped the two stories to the ground.

She heard him screaming at her as she ran, and it was incentive enough to push past the pain to escape.

“You can’t get away from me. I’ll find you!”

The streets were dark and nearly empty. She ran without stopping. Her life depended on it.

It was a hot summer evening, and the sky showed no indication of cooling down with rain. Her hair clung to her face, damp with sweat. The houses she ran past were only a blur. In the distance, someone’s music was blasting through an open window, the song unrecognizable. Her legs burned, but she knew if she slowed down now, Ronald would still have time to catch her. Swallowing her pain, she turned the corner and nearly ran someone down in the process.

“Whoa there, missy. What’s the rush?”

Panicked, her heart pounding so hard she felt ill from it, she continued to run.

Where was she going to go? What was she going to do? He would find her, and he would drag her home, and kill her.

I don’t want to die.

The blood from her wound trickled down her neck. Ducking behind a building, she opened her backpack to look for her jacket. Though it was a warm June evening, it was her only choice until she could get somewhere to clean and bandage the wound. Slipping on the heavy fall jacket, she zipped it right to her chin, and slung the pack over her shoulder. With a quick peak around the building, she darted out, and continued hurrying away, keeping her head down so as not to be recognized.

She heard a car pull up beside her and as she turned, saw Ronald behind the wheel.

“Get in the fucking car, Jo!”

Joanne screamed and bolted off. She ran down the street and slipped into an alley. When she heard his tires squealing, she knew he was coming after her. At the end, she turned left and continued to run. The sound of voices ahead drew her attention. As she looked up, she saw the crowd. Maybe she could lose him there. Pushing herself, she ran faster. As she neared the throng of people, she slowed down. Slipping into the crowd, she mingled while keeping watch for Ronald’s car.

When a hand clamped onto her arm, Joanne nearly screamed. Lifting her head, she saw a chubby-faced brunette, and mercifully, not her fiancé.

“We’re about to board. Whoa, cool tinted contacts. C’mon. You can sit with me.”

“What?” Confused, she looked around at the crowd before her.

“Your eyes. I like the colored contacts. The gold goes well with your black hair.”

“They’re not contacts.”

“Really? Weird. Come on, we’re boarding.”

Baffled, she found herself tugged toward the crowd. “No, I…I don’t—”

“Is that all you’ve got?”

“Pardon me?”

“Personal belongings. You just have the one bag?”

“Yes.” Before she could protest, the woman pulled her forward, and when she looked up, she saw a big black bus before her. “What’s going on?”

“We’re about to board. Isn’t this exciting? I’m Jennifer Laurence, by the by. And you are?”

Board a bus? Her first thought was to break free and continue running, until she heard a car squeal to a stop. Looking in the direction of the sound, she saw Ronald climb out of the car. She couldn’t let him find her.

“Hey, hello.” The woman snapped her fingers in front of her face, startling her. “You okay?”

She was anything but okay. “Yes.”

“What’s your name?”

Keeping an eye on Ronald, she inched closer to the woman. Using her real name was not an option, not if she wanted to get away from Ronald. “Missy.” The name just popped into her head. That’s what he’d called her, that man she’d nearly knocked down a minute ago.

“Missy what?”

“Green. Missy…Green.” All she could think of was her favorite color. It was a decent name, she supposed.

“Cool. Well, looks like it’s our turn. Come on.”
 

Character interview:

What are the names of the characters being interviewed?

Draco Starr

What is the main book you’ll be talking about in the interview?

Awaken the Demon. BK 1 in the Demon series

What genre is the book?

Paranormal romance

What is your name?

Draco. I adopted the last name Starr when I came topside. As a businessman, I wanted my employees to refer to by by my last name. Only my friends are allowed to call me Draco.

Why were you given that name?

My father, Satan, thought it was a strong name, a name a warrior would have. It’s Latin for Dragon. Thus far I have lived up to the name.

When were you born?

Centuries ago. My kind don’t hold onto specific dates like humans do.

Who has been your greatest influence? Why?

Originally, my Father was my greatest influence. There is no greater force than Lucifer. I was raised to fear and obey him. Since coming topside, the greatest influence in my life has been the love of my life, Missy. Her strength, her kind nature and understanding is admirable. She has taught me not only how to love, but to open my heart and become a kinder man.

Where did you grow up? How do you feel about it now?

I was raised in the pits of hell. Now most think of hell as a fiery pit with torture and pain. Part of that is true. There is plenty of pain for sinners. Each individual has their own personal hell. The Keepers which are the guardians of the sinners, feed off of the worst fears of the sinners and that is what they live in over and over. For instance, putting a murderer in the circumstance in which he killed his victims only pleasures the human. The Keepers are in charge of finding that inner fear, that one thing that would distress the sinner the most and that is what they endure for ever.

I, on the other hand lived in a section of hell that is for creation and grooming. It’s a place where Father keeps his children and those sinners whom he feels worthy of turning into a demon. In reference to human life and as they grew up, mine was far different. I was groomed from birth on to become a fearsome warrior. The goal for my life was to have me collect souls for Satan. I spent decades doing so.

Where do you currently live? Do you like it?

Currently my wife, Missy and I live in Eerie, Pensivania. I decided a decade ago to make this my home. Do I like it? I wouldn’t have moved here if I hadn’t. Why I like it is simple. Aside from the extreme beauty and the water the business industry is booming here. I procure several businesses that are high in productivity and wealth. There is no better place, I found than Eerie for that.

With whom do you live? How do you feel about them?

My wife, my love, Missy and my trusted friend and man of all trades, Hunter. As I stated above, Missy has taught me to open up and find that kindness in my soul. Without her, I would still be a ruthless self absorbed tyrant. I’m still ruthless in business, but not so that I… shall we say… eradicate those that I feel do not match up to my standards. As for Hunter. He has been with me for decades. I needed someone at my side who I could trust, whom I could mold into the right type of person to help me in all manner or things. He has been at my side through thick and thin, and has never given me cause to remove him from my life.  I used to be very hard on him at times, but since my love came into my life, I’ve come to realize just how deeply I care for Hunter and how valuable he is to me. I am proud to call him my friend.

How do you feel about children? Do you have or want to have your own?

Over the past decade, I came to realize that I needed more in my life. I needed a mate, but not just any mate. She had to be special. When I discovered that twenty three years ago, a child had been born of a human and a demon, a taboo worth killing for, I knew instantly I needed to make her mine. It took more years than I care to discuss for me to find her, and when I did I was determined to claim her as my own. My only intention was to claim her, but the moment I laid eyes on her, I felt something stronger. Love.

We have discussed children, but as I said, having children between a human and a demon is taboo. Although Missy is only part human it is still forbidden. Being as headstrong and determined as I am, I will find a way to convince my father to allow us at least one offspring.

How did the two of you meet?

As I stated, I was in search of the demon/human woman for my mate. I knew the year she was born and I knew her father was incarcerated in hell for his indiscretion. So with the knowledge of the year of her birth I started a company called, The Starr Gazers, to find her. I sent out thirty invitations at a time, to children born the same year as she, making sure not to just have women but men as well. I figured it would look suspicious if I just invited women here. The ruse was to invite certain individuals who I felt worthy of joining one of my company’s and have them sit through a few seminars before I made my decision.

From the moment I saw her and those beautiful golden eyes, I was enthralled. Something about her drew me in. I knew it was forbidden to claim a human, but something about Missy made me want to throw out the rules and take a leap.  It wasn’t until she began to transform into her true form, a demon, did I realize why I was so drawn to her. It was not easy convincing her to be with me. She was a headstrong determined woman who had run from an abusive man who refused to be dominated once more. In time, she began to fall in love with me, and I learned I too could feel love. I would give my life for her and not a day goes by that I am not thankful that she stepped into my life.

I’m honored to celebrate this momentous occasion with Evernight. Here’s a look at my first Evernight title and my latest release:

my-biggest-fan

Shawn Torien is a handsome, arrogant bassist with the groove rock band Bloodless. At thirty four, he’s seen everything, been everywhere, and all is handed to him on a silver plate, groupies included.

His rock star attitude is questioned when the record company’s young webmistress Samantha joins the band to cover their life on the road. As she has crushed on Shawn for years, he takes great pleasure in teasing her and pushing her away… until he learns about the woman beneath the surface.
