Out TODAY from Nia Farrell–WANTED (Replay Book 11)

Jeremy Randall is a graphic novelist whose Iron Domination Series inspired The Steamroom addition at Replay BDSM theme resort.  While he’s written BDSM, he’s only researched it, never experienced it.  His first visit to Replay coincides with Wild West weekend, where he’ll portray a gunslinger.  He hopes to be dominating subs before the weekend is through.

Jeremy signs a contract agreeing to first train as submissive, but he’s in for a shock when Courtney Reynolds isn’t the latex-clad Domme that he envisioned.  The Dominant assigned to guide him through the weekend is eight years older, experienced, and gay.

Cast in the role of Sheriff Reynolds, Court seems Jeremy’s opposite but he takes the role of training him seriously.  Court believes that Jeremy is naturally submissive, and he agrees with the resort psychiatrist that Jeremy might be bisexual, too.  Court falls hard and fast for the beautiful, talented, conflicted young man.  He has one weekend to free Jeremy from a lifetime of misperceptions and help him discover his true nature.  When Sunday comes, will he be able to let him go?

This book is a first time MM BDSM erotic romance.  If kink and a sexual relationship between an older man and a younger man offend you, please keep looking for your next read.  Written for Aged 18+.

Here’s a steamy teaser:

By the time they returned to Jericho, Jeremy’s shirt was soaked through with sweat and he knew that he’d never done justice when describing the aches of a horseback rider.

“Saddle-sore?”  The sheriff eyed him closely.

“A bit, Sir,” Jeremy said tightly, grimacing when he swung his right leg down and cleared his left boot from the stirrup.

Sheriff Reynolds rubbed his face in his hands.  “Okay.  Then we’re headed to the bathhouse.  We need to get that soreness worked out if you’re going to be much good tonight.”

Tonight.  Jesus, he didn’t want to think about tonight.

Working out the soreness, though…

That, he could handle.

Jeremy followed Sir Courtney out of the livery and fell into step behind him, keeping his eyes on the broad shoulders and the muscled width of his back.  He was grateful that the Dom kept his pace to a lazy amble.  Despite his soreness, he managed to keep up with him, at least.

A scantily clad attendant greeted them when they stepped inside the bathhouse.  “How can I help you, Sir?”

The sheriff sliced a quick glance at him.  “The boy needs a bath and a rubdown.  Is there a private room available?  First time here,” he explained.

First time anywhere, Jeremy silently corrected him, grateful to be spared a public display.  The Dom and the concierge spoke longer, keeping their voices low and their conversation between the two of them.  When they finished, she showed them to a room upstairs and opened the door for them to step inside.

Two old-fashioned tubs were filled with steaming water, just like in the movies.  A table between them held small bars of soap, washcloths, and towels.  Pitchers of clear rinse water sat within reach on the board floor.

Sheriff Reynolds hung his hat on the wall rack.  Jeremy stood with his feet rooted in place, feeling as fidgety as a freshman athlete in the varsity shower room.

The Dom gave him a longsuffering look and nodded at the tubs.  “Strip and get in,” he ordered.  Pulling off his tie and shrugging off his sack coat, he hung them on the wall hooks and reached for the buttons of his vest.

The sheriff was stripping.

The gay sheriff was getting naked.

There were two tubs, Jeremy told himself.  Nothing was going to happen—especially nothing without consent, and he hadn’t agreed to anything yet.

Except for what was in the contract.



Impact play.

Anal play.

Sex toys.

Possible fisting.

God, he was so fucked.

Nia Farrell is a founding member of the Wicked Pens and an award-winning, multi-genre author who is published in romance, erotic romance, nonfiction, poetry, music, and children’s books, with one documentary screenplay under her literary belt.  A seventh-generation Illinoisan, she’s an old soul and a period reenactor who’s been into corsets for centuries, although she wears them more to Civil War events these days.

Living close to St. Louis, Missouri, on the east side of the river, Nia has been involved in the metaphysical community for over twenty-five years. She is a Reiki Master and crystal healer whose work encompasses this and other lifetimes. In her book Something More (The Three Graces Book 3), BDSM and submission are tools for healing post-rape PTSD.  Something More was a finalist for Best BDSM Book of the Year, Ménage Category, in the 2016 Golden Flogger Awards.  Find Her, the first book in her latest series, Avenging Angels MC, reached #9 on Amazon’s best seller list for BDSM Erotica.  She was nominated for Favorite MC Author, The Best of the Best 2017.

Her debut books from The Three Graces Series (Something Else, Something Different, and Something More) are kink with a paranormal twist. Soul mates, reincarnation, karmic fallout, shamanism, and psychic abilities come into play. Personal experience and extensive research go into crafting her characters, but it’s her sense of whimsy that has made fictional Posey, Minnesota, the ménage capital of the United States with a Monty-Python-themed diner that’s central to the plotlines.

An Interview with Michael Rannigan from Rannigan’s Redemption

handsome young man

On Sunday, December 17, I’ll be taking over a Facebook event called Book Elves on the Shelves from 5pm-6pm EST.  In preparation for the event, I was called upon to write a character interview.

After some thought, I decided to interview Michael Rannigan from RANNIGAN’S REDEMPTION, and I have to confess, it was amazing getting back in his head.  Obviously, I love all my characters, but there’s something about Michael that sticks with me after all this time.  I thought I’d share the interview with you.

An Interview with Michael Rannigan:

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

Michael Rannigan: Well, I’m a lawyer.  Earned my law degree at NYU here in Manhattan.  I’m a founding partner at Murphy, Rannigan, and Metheny, along with my buddies Brian Murphy and Jim Metheny.  Those guys and their associates practice a lot of different kinds of law.  Up on the 50th floor, we specialize in high profile defense.  When the rich and famous get into trouble, they call me.  *laughs*

Q: You’ve had an associate working with you for a number of years, Maggie Flynn.  Tell us about her.

MR: Maggie?  She’s a good addition to the team.  Smart, a hard worker.  Has an eye for detail, that’s for sure. She’s a great lawyer.

Q: There are those who say the two of you are close.  Are you romantically involved with Maggie?

MR: *blinks hard* No.  Next question.

Q: That question seemed to bother you.

MR: I date a very specific type of woman.  Even if I were to break my rule about going out with a colleague, which I wouldn’t, Maggie’s not my type.  I like blondes with big *waves hands in front of himself* egos and low expectations.  I’m not a ‘relationship’ kind of guy.  *gazes at hands*  Maggie deserves better than that.  *looks up suddenly*  That was off the record.

Q: Of course.  What are your plans for Christmas?

MR: *confident smile returns* I’m jetting off to Barbados that afternoon.  But I’ll probably pop by Maggie’s place that morning, say Merry Christmas to everyone gathered for her annual Orphans and Misfits Christmas celebration.

Q: Thank you for talking with me today.

MR: *nods* My pleasure.

Rannigan’s Redemption, my three-novel spicy vanilla law drama, is the story of the complicated relationship between bad boy Manhattan attorney Michael Rannigan and Maggie Flynn, the smart redhead he hires to join his prestigious firm.

Michael is a rogue, an inveterate player with a stable of surgically-enhanced bottle-blondes at his beck and call.  Maggie’s smart and capable, maybe even a better lawyer than Michael, if he stops to think about it.  She’s too smart for his sexual tastes, definitely not his type.  So why can’t he get her out of his mind?

Maggie has been in love with him from the beginning.  She knows how he operates, and that the situation is all but hopeless.  But she sees the man he could be.  For now, she’s content to work with him.

What would happen if they crossed that line?

Indulge Rannigan

The three Rannigan’s Redemption books, RESISTING RISK, RUNNING ROGUE, and RANSOMING REDEMPTION are available individually, or as one boxed set.  Full disclosure, the first book ends in something of a cliffie, so…

You can get the complete boxed set of Rannigan’s Redemption here: books2read.com/RannigansRedemption

And please join me Sunday at Book Elves on the Shelves.  It should be lots of fun!

Watch This Space–Spotlight on Jolie Mason

cry-havocOkay you guys.  Not long ago, I featured Jolie Mason’s latest book, Cry Havoc.  But I hadn’t actually finished reading it at the time of the post.  Now that I have, it deserves another spotlight, because it’s just that good!

Here’s my review from Amazon:

As a huge fan of Jolie Mason, I was super excited when I found out that she has a new series. In Cry Havoc, Aiden Simeon is a very young man with a load of responsibilities, not the least of which is the care of his ad hoc family, three orphaned kids for whom he strives to provide. He’s working as a tech with the Lancers, a fact which pleases me to no end–I loved Mason’s 47th Lancers series, and I’m thrilled that she’s brought back some of those characters.

Cry Havoc is fast-paced sci-fi, but it has heartbreaking moments and a deeply character-driven core. Take it from me, you will want in on the ground floor of Jolie Mason’s new War in the Stars series. Can’t wait for the next installment–5 BIG STARS!

Jolie Mason was kind enough to stop by my little blog and answer Pandora’s Dirty Dozen.  So get to know this talented sci-fi romance author.  Who knew she’s into menage books, just like me?  (*cough*  Paging Nia Farrell.  *cough*)

1. Describe your books and your writing style.

 Scifi romance and young adult scifi

2. Talk about your process. Where do you write? When do you write? Are you linear or do you write scenes and put them together later? Who are your muses and where do you get your best ideas?

 My muses in my genre ( there are many others) are Anna Hackett and Cynthia Sax. Also, AR Declerck, oh, how I love her prose. No one writes prose the way she can. I am most inspired by reading and music.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

 Cry Havoc. The first in a series of straight up scifi aimed at younger adults. It’s about so many things; family, loyalty, robots gone horribly awry.

4. What is your current project?

 I am currently plugging away at the second in my Brother Assassins series, Brother’s Keeper.

5. Now about you… Very generally speaking, where do you call home?

 Southeast Missouri, right on the river. RIGHT on the river.

6. As a reader… What genre do you most often read? What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

 Mostly I read future and past. lol. I devour SFR like it’s going out of style, but I also pick up the occasional Paranormal romance and Historicals. Jane Eyre is my go to. I’ve read it probably thirty times in my life, and have multiple highlighted copies around here somewhere.

7. What do you like to do when you’re not writing or reading?

 Karaoke keeps me sane, as I struggle with three kids entering the dreaded teen years.

8. We all have guilty pleasures. I enjoy boy bands. There, I said it. What is your guilty pleasure?

Menage books. I have a serious weakness for erotica sometimes, and coffee. Lots of coffee.

9. What superpower would you choose, and why?

 As a scifi writer, this is a more serious question than you might suppose. We contemplate this kind of stuff. I would most love to be able to turn invisible at will. Flying would just get me killed. I do NOT want to read the thoughts of random strangers. OMG. There are too many side effects to almost everything psychic, so I would choose sneaky because it has practical applications.

10. If you could live anywhere, you’d choose…

 Anywhere? I’d build one of those treehouses like you see on PBS. The kind that are like mansions and have wifi. Then, I’d probably build another and end up with some strange artist’s commune because I cannot stop when I love something.

11. I wish _________________ would read my book.

 I don’t know. I get freaked when I know someone’s read it. I wonder endlessly what they thought, so usually I don’t want to know. lol

12. In the airport, you overhear a heated argument between a husband and wife. You:

politely ignore it.
stop what you’re doing and watch with rapt attention.
mention it to airport personnel.

tuck it away for use in a future book.

Now run, don’t walk, to get your copy of Cry Havoc.  Get in on the ground floor of this exciting new series!


Watch This Space–Patient Lee

Out by Patient LeeI’m so thrilled to feature the ever-sexy Patient Lee in this week’s Watch This Space post.  I just read her new book, OUT, and it’s everything I love about a Patient Lee book.  Out is a collection of five of her best gay romances.  One thing I love about it is that she begins each story with its origins, where she came up with the idea for it in the first place.  Another thing I love about Patient Lee books is the humanity with which she infuses her characters.  She allows us to slip into their skins and walk around for a while, getting the feel of what it is to be a gay man on a “journey of discovery.”

Recently, she was gracious enough to sit down and answer Pandora’s Dirty Dozen interview questions.  Get to know sexy erotica author Patient Lee.

1. Describe your books and your writing style.

 Erotic realism- infusing the mundane with the erotic. The erotic is everywhere. You just have to wear the right lens to see it.

2. Talk about your process. Where do you write? When do you write? Are you linear or do you write scenes and put them together later? Who are your muses and where do you get your best ideas?

You know the scene in Wreck It Ralph when Fix It Felix and Sergeant Calhoun are in the Nesquik Sand, and the vines of Laffy Taffy drop down from above and save them? My ideas are like those vines of taffy. I don’t get all of the pieces of a story at once, but once I have three or four vines, I can start weaving them together. I write where I can, often in bed. During the summer I write in my camper or outside on my little table. I wish I had a super comfy desk chair, but I’d probably just fall asleep. I’ve been using Scrivener lately, which makes it easier to write a scene at a time and plot the others as I go. I also outline loosely in my 5×5 graph composition tablet with my 0.7 mm lead Bic Atlantis pencil. (I can’t always find them. Sometimes I have to get Bic Velocity.) When I struggle with a scene or a story, I hand-write in my very best penmanship in my tablet. I go through two or three of them a year, and I intersperse stories with to-do lists, lesson plans, grocery lists, rants about work, rants about how much my work-in-progress sucks, etc. To touch my tablet is to risk your life. Consider yourself warned.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

OUT: Five Erotic Stories of Gay Self-Discovery is a collection of some of my best writing. It’s available on Kindle Unlimited. Five erotic stories of different stages of self-discovery.
Come with a Friend ~ An eighteen-old-man with a tragic life and a history of being bullied reconnects with a childhood friend who cooks up a scheme to take revenge on the bully of their youth. But is revenge the real reason for Jason wearing a gown to the prom? Or could it be love?
Christmas in July ~ Straight-guy Sam spends a weekend in a campground to entice his kids to hang out with him for Christmas in July. His ex-wife cuts the weekend short, leaving him plenty of time to hang out with Larry, the fortysomething gay man in the camper next door. Beer and Larry’s mildly dominant personality leads them into his camper. And then his bedroom.
Come on Down ~ While fooling around with the much younger Caylin, James has a flashback to a gay experience when he was younger, prompting his girlfriend to arrange a threesome with an old friend. How far will James go with another man this time?
Gay Greenhorn on the F/V Lost Agnes ~ Inspired by the song Midnight Train to Georgia, Carson travels to Alaska to try crab fishing, but the Lost Agnes is too much for him. He meets Artie, a deckhand, and they fall hard and fast for each other. When life on the Bering Sea threatens to swallow him up, Carson returns to Georgia, to the life he knows. But Artie can’t live without him. He has to choose life on a crab boat or life with Carson in Georgia.
Love and a Hate Crime ~ Thad is twenty, but he’s slow. When his bully, Jimmy, tells him to “fuck up the queers,” the gay couple in their 60s who live down the block, Thad trusts that in return, Jimmy will leave him alone. When he breaks into their house, he witnesses the couple making love, arousing him and terrifying him at the same time. What if Thad is queer too?

4. What is your current project?

I’ve been working on the same “Mary Poppinsish” story for the last 8 months. It’s about 12k words so far (which is pathetic for 8 months), but I’m right on the cusp of making it work. Here’s what it’s about: A lesbian couple, struggling to stay together, wins a personal chef for a week. Their eight-year-old daughter is delighted, but the mommies aren’t too thrilled to accept an intruder. When Daelynn Crane arrives, she turns their world upside down, reminding Allison and Lori what good sex feels like and teaching them to love each other without condition once again. But is Daelynn Crane the woman she claims to be? (This story will appear in the upcoming anthology, Three’s Company, a collection of threesome tales by the authors of The Cabin.)

5. Now about you… Very generally speaking, where do you call home?

 Northeast US.

6. As a reader… What genre do you most often read? What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

 I prefer books about real things, but I guess I just like a good story. My all-time favorite books are It, by Stephen King (and I claim not to like things not based in reality), I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb (and I don’t remember why), and A.M. Manay’s November Snow series (and I don’t like vampires). I love, love, love short stories, the quirkier, the better. I love the classics, all of Stephen King’s short story collections (Rainy Season is my favorite.), Erotic Shivers by M.S. Tarot (Read Lord of Devil’s Night!), Stories to Read While Driving by Jim Heskett, and I recently fell in love with C. Jai Ferry’s collection of flash fiction- Unraveled.

7. What do you like to do when you’re not writing or reading?

 I love crossword puzzles, and I’ve had the subscription to the NY Times Crosswords for about twelve years.

8. We all have guilty pleasures. I enjoy boy bands. There, I said it. What is your guilty pleasure?

Candy Crush. I’m hopelessly addicted.

9. What superpower would you choose, and why?

Ability to breathe underwater. I have dreams in which I can.

10. If you could live anywhere, you’d choose…

 Caribbean beach.

11. I wish _________________ would read my book.

 Stephen King

12. In the airport, you overhear a heated argument between a husband and wife. You:

OUT: Five Erotic Stories of Gay Self-Discovery by Patient Lee is available exclusively on Amazon.  It’s FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Weekend Excerpt–Rannigan’s Redemption

RR nominee coverRannigan’s Redemption is sexy contemporary erotic romance, the story of high-powered Manhattan defense attorney Michael Rannigan and his complicated relationship with Maggie Flynn, the smart, spunky redheaded lawyer he hires to join his elite firm.

The story was originally released as three separate books.  The Rannigan’s Redemption Collection, released in late July, contains all three books in the trilogy: Resisting Risk, Running Rogue, and Ransoming Redemption.  It’s been nominated for a 2016 Summer Indie Book Award.

This excerpt is the beginning chapter of the entire story.  Be forewarned: This excerpt contains adult language.  Reader discretion is advised.

Fucking her had been inevitable, he reasoned.  After all, Maggie was not unattractive with her thick red hair, bright green eyes shaded by long red lashes she darkened with mascara, the smattering of freckles across her nose.  Beneath those inexpensive business suits she favored, her body wasn’t bad.  Don’t think he hadn’t noticed.

It was an odd line of thought for a man on vacation.  He stretched out his legs on the chaise and gazed past his tanned bare feet to the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean.  His travel agent had assured him that he’d love the Maldives.  He raised his glass of bourbon in a toast to Nancy at East Coast Travel, but his thoughts returned to Maggie.

He’d actually been surprised at the firm, full, round tits he’d unearthed beneath that conservative grey blouse.  They were much larger than he’d realized, in a natural, homegrown sort of way.

Obviously, she wasn’t his usual taste. He preferred bottle blondes with tiny waists and store-bought tits, the bigger the better.  In fact, if a woman resembled Barbie, it was a plus.  Not that he’d turn down a hot brunette, either.  He gravitated toward socialites, models, or occasionally actresses, the more successful the better.  Less successful women tended to be needy, emotionally speaking.  Flight attendants were his among his favorites.  They could never stay.

He glanced to his right at Vivian, the chosen one accompanying him on this trip. She wore only the tiniest black bikini bottoms, having removed the top to avoid tan lines.  Her white blonde hair was swept up in a knot on top of her head.  Expensive designer sunglasses shaded eyes he knew were violet, albeit artificially so, thanks to purple contacts.  Plumped pouting lips were precisely situated beneath her perfect designer nose.  Had she told him that she’d had her lips done again just before they left New York?  He couldn’t seem to remember.  His gaze fell to her enormous tits.  They really are her best quality, he thought.  Later, he’d fuck those tits.  She could always shower before dinner.

She noticed that he was looking her way.  “Hey, baby,” she simpered, fingering her left nipple provocatively.  He winked at her then looked away without answering.

As a fellow attorney, Maggie was much too bright for his liking as well.  He wasn’t in it for the conversation, after all; he was never interested in what they had to say.  And boning a colleague was usually a bad idea.  But she’d liked him.  She always had, since she first was hired at Murphy, Rannigan, & Metheny.

There were those who called Michael Rannigan shallow.  He shook his head.  Fuck them, and the horse they rode in on, he thought.

And now for a teeny surprise…

I’m thrilled to announce that TODAY at 11:00am EDT, I’ll be LIVE on Blog Talk Radio talking to Brian The Hammer Jackson about Rannigan’s Redemption, which was recently nominated for a Summer Indie Book Award.  Tune in to hear all about it!

Interview With Author Lilah E. Noir

Erotic romance author Lilah E. Noir’s new novel, Unorthodox Therapy, launches TODAY, June 30, 2016.  Not long ago, I posted about this highly anticipated addition to her bibliography.  I was lucky enough to snag an interview when she graciously agreed to answer Pandora’s Dirty Dozen.


1. Describe your books and your writing style.

I write hardcore yet always sensual and character driven erotica, with BDSM elements. By that moment I have written shorter stories and novellas whose main focus was on the freedom submission can bring to a person. I am about to release my first full-length novel, Unorthodox Therapy, which revolves around the submission of a woman in a position of power and switches the traditional boss/employee – Dom/sub couple. It’s a love story at its core but far from the classic romance. Unorthodox Therapy is part 1 of a trilogy that would further explore the nature of addiction, power play and love. I’d say that I try to write stories with strong plots, well-developed characters and intense pace. The steamy, detailed scenes of passion, pain and abandonment are just one of the ingredients.

2. Talk about your process. Where do you write? When do you write? Are you linear or do you write scenes and put them together later? Who are your muses and where do you get your best ideas?

I usually write at home, either before or after my day job. I often enjoy bringing my laptop to a local cafe with WiFi, it creates me some illusion of social life. When I am focused on a project and finishing the rough draft within a certain timeframe I tend to use every free minute for writing. At that period I try to whip at least 2,500 words per day. I’m a plotter so in order to make a project successful, even my short stories, I need some outline that serves me as a rough map. Usually I start with as detailed description of each chapter, profiles for my characters and whatever research I need to do. After all that is taken care of I may go in a full-on writing mode. I am also linear when it comes to that plan. I always read the previous chapter before continuing to the next point so I’d avoid any inconsistencies and contradictions. However, I am not too religious about the plan and make deviations from it if they would serve the plot better. My novel was supposed to have a completely different ending… but the characters got their way and now I have to write a trilogy. Most of my ideas come from different fantasies that I gradually shape into stories. My muses are usually people I know, either online or in real life. I tend to “steal” some personality traits and give them to my fictional characters. It makes them a bit more easy to relate that way.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

As I mentioned above, my upcoming novel Unorthodox Therapy makes its debut on June 30th. It is part 1 of a trilogy focusing on the complicated relationship between a powerful older woman, an IT entreprenuer, and her younger employee who is determined to help her get rid of her smoking problem. There is a lot of kink, emotional highs and lows, romance, suspense, unexpected twists and turns, pleasure, pain, love. It’s really difficult to classify it under one genre. You can all find out why most of the readers who helped me with beta and advanced reading compared it to an emotional roller coaster.

4. What is your current project?

I’ll be working on my Strangers in the Night serial, short stories about two people who have only the time until sunrise to explore all their kinky fantasies. It doesn’t have a romantic focus but probably there will be a pinch of romance in an unexpected way right at the end. At the end of August when the summer heat isn’t choking my poor brain cells I’ll finally start writing Unorthodox Chemistry, Part 2 of the Unorthodox trilogy. Though in July I may write something short, light-hearted and kinky, a novella.

5. Now about you… Very generally speaking, where do you call home?

I’m a drifter by heart so I can’t say for sure I have found the place to call home. I changed my address so many times over the last ten years that sometimes it gets confusing. So let’s say home is the place where I’d feel safe and inspired.

6. As a reader… What genre do you most often read? What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

I’m a book whore so I read absolutely everything I can get my hands on, without limitations and genre restrictions. Lately I’ve been reading mostly erotic romance and BDSM books by fellow authors but I try to vary my menu with sci-fi, horror, historical novels, hard boiled fiction, classic literature. My mind always goes blank when I get asked of favorite something of all times. Perhaps because I’ve read and have been influenced by so many authors it is really difficult to point one. But the first two who come to my mind are On The Road by Jack Kerouac and White Oleander by Janeth Fitch. The first one I choose because of the fantastic sense of freedom and madness it was exuding. It infected me with its pure enjoyment of life. The second one I have re-read thousands of time and I love the beauty of the language and poetic style. And yet the book is definitely not a sugar-coated, purple prose kind of story. It’s raw, honest, filled with beauty and ugliness, pain and redemption.

7. What do you like to do when you’re not writing or reading?

I enjoy swimming, working out, long walks and some mountain hiking, sipping cocktails and other alcohol on beaches. Lately I haven’t had that much time for my other life-long obsession, cinema, though I should catch up. You can also find me in front of my computer, working on some graphic or web design project. I love making book covers for myself and other authors. Lately I’ve also been doing a lot of promos and media kit materials.

8. We all have guilty pleasures. I enjoy boy bands. There, I said it. What is your guilty pleasure?

Nothing to be ashamed of, Pandora, I admit that boy bands have their charm. Shhh, don’t tell anyone but I enjoy cheesy romantic comedies, junk food and sugary pop music… Ops, too many sins? 🙂

9. What superpower would you choose, and why?

Telepathy, so I can get in people’s minds and steal their stories for my own personal pleasure or to transform them into exciting tales on paper/screen.

10. If you could live anywhere, you’d choose…

Spain, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Germany.

11. I wish _________________ would read my book.

One specific man I knew. Or maybe not.

12. In the airport, you overhear a heated argument between a husband and wife. You:

politely ignore it.
stop what you’re doing and watch with rapt attention.
mention it to airport personnel.

Character Interview–Bella Grant

bigstock-Copile-At-Maldives-7582357.jpgIt’s the one year anniversary of the release of Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over.  To celebrate, here’s an interview with the spunky, red-haired heroine, Bella Grant.

Q:  Traveling the world and creating a weekly travel show sounds like a dream come true.  How did you find such a great job?

A:  (smiling brightly)  It is an amazing opportunity.  I’ve been a news reporter, and more recently, an anchor and morning show host, since I graduated from college.  I started out in Austin, then I moved to Anaheim, Asheville, and finally Akron.  I cracked up when I realized that everywhere I’ve worked starts with A.  (laughs)  I saw a job posting in a trade magazine and I applied immediately.  Now I’m paid to travel around the world and talk about it on television.  Sometimes I pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

Q:  And has it been as great as it sounds?

A:  Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of work involved.  The network office tells us where to go, but then it’s up to us to find the stories there.  But yeah, we spend a few days in an exciting city, we stay in luxury hotels, we meet fascinating people…  What’s not to love?

Q:  By ‘we’ you mean you and Luke.

A:  I do.   I mean Luke and myself.  He’s my production partner.  Together, we come up with ideas for the show.  In fact, when we were first attached to the show, it didn’t even have a name.  We came up with Two Streets Over when we were in Edinburgh working on the first episode.

Q:  So  Luke is merely your ‘production partner’.

A:  (blushing)  I suppose there’s more to it than that.  (pauses to look out the window)  I never envisioned falling in love on the job.  I mean, it’s a job, it’s work, you know?  But…  Luke and I, we were just meant to be.  He sees me for who I am.  I think he knows me better than I know myself.

Q:  Of all the places you’ve traveled for the show, where is your favorite?  I asked Luke and he said Mykonos.

A:  (smiles fondly)  Did he?

Q:  He did.  He said you’d know why.

A:  (nods and looks down)  I do.  Mykonos is special.  (looks back up)  But I’m awfully fond of Edinburgh.  It’s where I knew I was falling in love.

Q:  Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A:  (shrugs vaguely)  I don’t know.  I don’t suppose it’s practical to think we’d still be traveling.  Eventually we’ll have to get back to real life.  I know that eventually I want to settle down, have a home and a family.

Q:  With Luke?

A:  (grins)  That would be nice.

Character Interview–Luke McGillicutty

COuple on their honeymoon in Santorini GreeceIt’s the one year anniversary of the release of Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over.  To celebrate, here’s an interview with the hero himself, Luke McGillicutty.

Q: Luke, you’re an experienced photo journalist.  How did you come to be attached to the Two Streets Over project?

A: Yes, I was a photog for a number of years, going all the way back to my days in the Navy.  There were a lot of times I was sent into some dicey situations, undercover as a journalist.  Later, I worked for network news until I got burned out from all the mayhem.  I was retired and living on a boat in Tampa when I got a call from my old pal, Charlie.  He convinced me to give this thing another try.

Q: And how did he do that?

A: Well, for one thing he promised me that it would be completely different, a happy one-hour weekly travel show rather than death and destruction.  And he said that I’d have total control over the stories.  (laughs)  Oh, and he told me I’d be partnered up with a redhead with great ‘gams’.  He actually said that.

Q:  He meant Bella Grant.  Talk about meeting her.

A:  Bella?  (shakes head)  When I first saw her she took my breath away.  I was waiting in the airport lounge in New York and I was this close to flying my ass right back to Tampa when she walked into the room.  Her red curls looked like fire, and she locked eyes with me like she owned the place.  She wasn’t the frilly female I’d been expecting.  She was smart and funny and gorgeous…and Charlie was right about her gams.  (laughs)

Q:  And you got along right from the start?

A:  Like I said, Bella’s smart.  She knew exactly what she wanted this show to be and she wasn’t at all shy to say so.  It didn’t take long at all for us to click professionally.

Q:  Or personally…

A:  Or personally.  Hell, I knew I was in love with her almost from the start.  But we have a job to do and we take that seriously.

Q:  Of all the places you’ve covered so far, what has been your favorite?

A:  (pauses for a long moment)  Mykonos.  Without a doubt.

Q:  Why Mykonos?

A:  (shakes his head)  Bella knows why.  We’ll leave it at that.

Q:  Where do you see yourself in ten years?

A:  (smiles wistfully)  I don’t know.  But wherever it is, with Bella.  (laughs)  You’re going to get me in trouble, make me ask a question I’m not sure I’m ready to ask.

Watch This Space–Something Special by Nia Farrell


nia fSomething Special, Book 6 in erotica author Nia Farrell’s Three Graces series, is out today!

Get to know erotic romance author Nia Farrell.

1. Describe your books and your writing style.

I’m a multi-genre writer but my recent releases are erotic romances. My Three Graces Trilogy are BDSM menages that have been called new age erotic romance. The first book SOMETHING ELSE is about soulmates who keep reincarnating together. The heroine is a psychic medium who’s been saving herself for the men of her dreams – bisexual American Indian musician Nico White and J.T. Santiago, an ex-Navy SEAL with PTSD. All of the paranormal elements come from first-hand experience, either mine or one of my many psychic friends. Grace, Nico, and J.T. have a very special honeymoon in store when their sequel SOMETHING SPECIAL releases on May 5th. SOMETHING DIFFERENT (The Three Graces Book Two) has Anna James, starving artist and potty mouthed gamer girl who is Nico’s songwriting partner. Their collaborative “music writing night” is base on my personal experience as a songwriter, and her tie-in to Comanche chief Quanah Parker comes from my own family geneaology. She meets her match in part-Comanche twins and triple platinum artists Jackson and Jacob Thomason who perform as No Mercy. SOMETHING MORE (The Three Graces Book Three) was the hardest to write due to the themes of post-rape PTSD and autism. Two of my friends struggle with post-rape PTSD and I have two autistic nephews. The book just touches on some of the daily challenges that they face. SOMETHING MORE is a nominee for Best BDSM Book of the Year, Menage Category, 2016 Golden Flogger Awards. DARK MOONS RISING is my first PRN shifter erotic romance. DARK MOONS RISING is an otherworldly sword-and-sorcery medieval D/s ménage, where a daughter of light finds unexpected sanctuary with two dark lords (handsome as men, stunning as centaurs!) I’m really excited about my upcoming release June 1, with PRIDE AND PUNISHMENT, an erotic retelling of Jane Austen’s beloved classic. Characters that you thought you knew…well, they’re ready to reveal their secret selves. Mr. Darcy is a Dominant. Miss Elizabeth Bennet is submissive. Jane Bennet might be the only “handsome” woman in Meryton, but puppy-like Charles Bingley needs a Mistress. Mr. Darcy doesn’t think Jane has what it takes and separates the couple. His growing lust leads Mr. Darcy to confess his desire to dominate Miss Elizabeth – a proposition that she mistakes for a proposal. Already accused of less-than-gentlemanlike behavior, Darcy must find a way to win the submissive heart of a woman who abhors him. I kept the dialogue as intact as possible, while telling the story from Mr. Darcy’s point of view. Length is 91,166 words/340 6×9 pages.

2. Talk about your process. Where do you write? When do you write? Are you linear or do you write scenes and put them together later? Who are your muses and where do you get your best ideas?

I have a home office that I virtually live in when I’m writing. My thought processes may range far and wide, but when my fingers connect with my laptop, I work in linear fashion, telling the story from beginning to end. Sources of inspiration are everywhere. The equine therapy mention in the Three Graces trilogy is based on our local therapeutic riding center, whose riders include veterans with PTSD and children with autism. The books started with the idea of soulmates, inspired by personal experience in this and other lifetimes…except there are only two of us who keep reconnecting.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

SOMETHING SPECIAL is BDSM menage erotic romance, the wedding and honeymoon book for Grace, Nico, and J.T. who met in SOMETHING ELSE. Six weeks into the relationship, Grace learns that she’s expecting (despite being on the pill), and plans are made for very special honeymoon at a BDSM theme resort where patrons come to play in the past. The men are giving Grace her capture fantasy…except Nico won’t be the warrior taking her!

4. What is your current project?

I have three series that I’m launching. The first is about Replay, the BDSM theme resort in SOMETHING SPECIAL. Book 1 VIKING RAID will be out July 1, followed by TRIPLE PLAY on September 1 and HONOUR BOUND on November 1. The second series are BDSM menage historicals about Grace, Nico, and J.T.’s past live. AS WICKED AS YOU WANT (set in 1868 Chicago and London) premiers August 1. The other series (Touch the Wind) is sultry historical romance written as Erinn Ellender Quinn. Because of its paranormal elements, Book 2 RIDE THE WIND will be out first on October 1. The other books are swashbucklers, set in 1727 Caribbean. TOUCH THE WIND Book 1 comes out December 1. I also have other single titles planned for 2017 and 2018.

5. Now about you… Very generally speaking, where do you call home?

 I’m a seventh generation Illinoisan.

6. As a reader… What genre do you most often read? What is your all-time favorite book, and why?

I read mostly erotic romance and dark romance, with a decided fondness for MMF and MFM menages. Picking a favorite book is like picking a favorite song. I will say that my favorite audio book is the historical novel about the battle of Gettysburg, KILLER ANGELS by Michael Shaara.

7. What do you like to do when you’re not writing or reading?

My husband and I are Civil War reenactors. I’m also a Reiki master and a crystal healer who occasionally reads at psychic fairs.

8. We all have guilty pleasures. I enjoy boy bands. There, I said it. What is your guilty pleasure?

Dancing with the Stars

9. What superpower would you choose, and why?

Miraculous healing. To alleviate suffering and enable people to stay here long enough to learn their lessons so they don’t have to repeat them.

10. If you could live anywhere, you’d choose…

Ireland, near the sea

11. I wish _________________ would read my book.

everyone (yeah, I dream big)

12. In the airport, you overhear a heated argument between a husband and wife. You:

politely ignore it.
stop what you’re doing and watch with rapt attention.
mention it to airport personnel.
tuck it away for use in a future book.
Something Special is Book 6 in Nia Farrell’s Three Graces series and I highly recommend it, having been fortunate enough to have snagged an ARC.  Here’s my review.

Something Special is Book 6 of Nia Farrell’s The Three Graces series.  It’s the continuation of the story of the relationship between Grace Murphy, Nico White, and J.T. Santiago.  The book opens with a big surprise for the trio—they’re pregnant.  A paternity test identifies the father, but it doesn’t matter.  The three are partners for life.  And they make plans to formalize their relationship with a wedding.

Together, J.T. and Nico plot the perfect after-wedding surprise for their wife, no small feat when she’s a psychic medium, and after a beautiful celebration they whisk her away to an East coast BDSM retreat to give her the honeymoon experience of her fantasies.

I absolutely love a story with heart.  And there’s something so beautiful about the love these three characters share.  And this time the story is told from J.T.’s perspective, which adds intriguing insight into how he views their family.  Oh, and the ménage sex is hot, hot, hot!

If you’re a fan of The Three Graces series, this book is an absolute ‘don’t miss’.  If you’re not familiar with the stories, help yourself to Book 1.  Something Special is a worthy addition to the series and I can’t wait for the next one!

Now I know you’re wondering, “But where can I get Nia Farrell’s Something Special and the rest of the Three Graces Series?”  No worries.  Here’s the link.

Don’t miss out on this hot, heartfelt read!
