Weekend Excerpt–Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over

Luke & Bella promo UPDATED

Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over is always a sentimental favorite of mine.  It’s the first novel I ever wrote, the one that made me think, Hey, maybe I can do this! Still, every time I read snippets, I always find words I’d change or scenes I’d do differently.

Here’s this weekend’s excerpt, straight from Luke & Bella.  Warning: This is definitely an 18+ scene.

“Come with me, baby girl,” he whispered and he led her outside onto the terrace.  The full moon was reflected on the surface of the sea and overhead the stars shone brilliantly.

“Sit,” he said, and she sat on the chaise.  “I want your eyes on me,” he told her as he peeled off his clothes.  She watched him appreciatively.  He held up a finger.

“I’ll be right back.”  He returned with what looked like pieces of fabric.  “I’ve raided all the robes for belts, plus I have a couple of my ties.  I’m going to tie you up, baby girl.”  She felt a shiver run through her body making her nipples stretch and harden.

He had her lie back and put her hands over her head.  Gently, he tied her wrists together and pulled them toward the top of the chaise, securing them underneath.  He couldn’t resist trailing his hand down her body and was rewarded by her light moan.  “Are you liking this, baby girl?” he smiled.

“Yes, Sir,” she breathed.

He tied each ankle to the bottom legs of the chaise, forcing her legs to remain apart.  “Tell me a color,” he demanded.

“Very green, Sir,” she said, smiling.

He moved up to her face and kissed her passionately.  “I’m going to blindfold you,” he whispered, and he used the sash from her pink robe to cover her eyes, checking to make sure she couldn’t see anything.

He left her like that and went to pour himself a glass of Scotch.  He stood sipping, watching her.  What he wanted more than anything was to bury himself in that warm wet place between her thighs.  But if he wanted to teach her patience he would have to have a little himself.

He walked to her swirling his glass, causing the ice to clink softly.  Bella turned her head in the direction of the sound and he smiled to himself.  Fishing some ice out of the glass, he held it over her and watched as the cold drops fell onto her smooth belly.  She gasped and squirmed as much as she was able.  He took the ice and held it to her skin, slowly sliding it toward her fully erect nipples.  She moaned as he circled her nipples with the ice and licked off the cold water and Scotch.  “How are you doing, baby girl?”

“Oh, God!” was all she managed.

He poured the rest of the glass onto her belly, and licked it off.  She moaned and began to slowly move her hips back and forth.  “Patience, baby girl,” he purred.  “Don’t come yet.  I’m not even close to being done with you.”

He moved down to her feet and stood quietly, letting her wonder what would happen next.  Then, kneeling, he leaned over and put his mouth on her sex.  Bella immediately gasped and bucked, but he held on to her thighs as he licked and sucked her mercilessly.  She groaned and cried out, “Oh, God…oh, my…fuck!!!”

She began to pant and he stopped.  “No, baby girl, not yet,” he warned.

“Oh, please!” she cried out.

Luke smiled.  “Please what, baby girl?  What is it that you want?”

“Oh, please…Sir…Please, I want to come,” she breathed.

He moved onto the chaise and up to her lips, kissing her savagely.  “Taste yourself on me,” he growled.  She kissed him hungrily and licked his mouth and chin, lapping up her own sweetness.  He began to slowly stroke her sex with his.  “Ask me again, baby girl,” he whispered.

“Oh, God…please…may I please come, Sir?” she managed.

“Yes, baby girl, I want you to come.”  And she did, so hard she thought she’d rip in two, calling out loudly and not caring.  He watched her shake and shudder as the sensation rolled through her body.

When she stilled, he untied her blindfold and released her hands, leaving her ankles bound.  She wrapped her arms around him and kissed him passionately.  Unable to wait any longer, he slid himself deeply inside her and began to pound her roughly.  She felt her climax building again immediately and she dug her fingernails into his back, groaning and almost unable to breathe.

“You’re going to come again,” he growled.  She did and this time he was there as well, stopping his movements when he was as deeply into her as he could go, and she could feel the spasms of his orgasm shooting his hot release deep inside her.  After, they lay together for a moment, catching their breath.

Then he removed the belt from her neck and moved to untie her feet.  He lay beside her, gathering her into his arms.  “What do you think, baby girl?” he asked quietly.

“Who can think?” she breathed, and he chuckled.

Weekend Excerpt–Get Your FREE Copy of Just One Night

justonenightMy naughty little novella, Just One Night, is FREE now through Monday, October 17!  Amazon only allows me to run this deal once every three months, so it will be 2017 before Just One Night is free again.  Be sure to take advantage of this chance for a little escapism at a great price.  Oh, and if you leave a little review afterward, I’d be forever grateful.

How about a little teaser?  Fair warning: This excerpt is naughty.

Having bid a good evening to their lift companions, they stepped out onto the Empress Deck and wordlessly made their way down the passageway, Mac gently clasping Katie’s hand.  She watched as he unlocked the door and let them into his stateroom.

Katie crossed immediately to the glass wall overlooking the veranda and glanced around the plush cabin.  The king-sized bed had been turned down and luxurious, foil-wrapped chocolates graced the large pillows.  The only light was from a small lamp on a bedside table.  “This is nice.  Much nicer than mine, truth be told.”

Mac shrugged.  “My brother…  I wouldn’t have booked a room this fancy.”  He crossed to her and lightly caressed her back.  “Would you like some wine or something?”

She turned to face him and leaned up on her toes, trailing tiny kisses along his square jawline.  “Wine would be great.”

He leaned down and kissed her bare shoulder, hooking a finger in the spaghetti strap of her dress and sliding it down.  Katie fixed him with a smoldering look as she shrugged her right shoulder, causing the other strap to fall.  Her dress slid down, catching briefly on her erect nipples before falling to her waist.

“Holy…”  Mac stared at her perfect round breasts, erect pink nubs just begging to be toyed with.  Unable to resist, he slid his hands up her sides to cup her mounds, hefting their weight, pausing to gently tug their sharp points.  He squeezed gently as he kissed her again.

Reluctantly, he pulled away, clearing his throat.  “I’ll just order that wine now.”

Mac sank onto the edge of the bed and picked up the phone, dialing room service.  “Yes, this is Stateroom…”

As he began speaking into the phone, Katie knelt between his feet and began to unfasten his belt.  He looked down in surprise and was met with a wicked grin.  “Uh, yes, we’d like to order a bottle of wine…”

He gasped quietly as she took him in her mouth.  It was all he could do to complete the order and hang up the phone.  When he did, she began sucking him in earnest, taking in the whole of his large cock, mercilessly working him with her tongue from his balls all the way to his tip and back again.  She applied just the right amount of pressure, using her tongue to flick at his most responsive spots.

Mac could feel his release building and placed a hand on her head intending to warn her, but she looked up at him with a saucy arch of the eyebrow and continued her ministrations with renewed vigor.  “Oh, God!” he cried out, his hot essence shooting in streams down her throat.

While his shuddering subsided, Katie licked him clean before rising to her feet, a smug look on her face.  Mac flopped back on the bed.  “I’m a dead man.”

A knock at the door startled them both.  “Room Service!”

Mac jumped up and attempted to put himself back together.  At the same time, with a little wiggle Katie freed her dress from where it was snagged around her waist and it floated down the rest of her body, pooling around her feet, leaving her standing in just a pair of black lace panties.

“Holy shit,” he murmured, moving past her to the door, which he cracked open.

“Good evening, sir,” the attendant said.  “May I set up the wine for you?”

Mac glanced back at Katie standing virtually naked in the center of the room.  His own pants were still undone.  “Um, no, thanks, I’ll take it from here.”

The attendant smiled knowingly.  “Very good, sir.”

Closing the door, Mac carried the wine in its bucket of ice and the two glasses to the desk near the bed.  He paused to kiss Katie gently, tasting himself on her lips.  “You are a naughty girl,” he murmured.

“Is that a complaint?”

“No!  Simply an observation.”  He poured two glasses of wine and offered her one.  He touched his glass to hers.  “To being naughty.”

Katie laughed lightly as she sipped.  Mac watched her thoughtfully for a moment.  “I don’t even know what to call you.”

She smirked, amusement sparkling in her hazel eyes.  “‘Hey, you’ works just fine for me.”

He chuckled and nodded.  “‘Hey, you’ it is.”

They enjoyed their wine in silence for a while.  Eventually, Mac put down his glass and took Katie’s, placing it on the desk before wrapping her in his arms.  “You made me feel amazing.  Now I think it’s your turn.  What’s your pleasure, Hey, you?”

Her eyes darkened.  “I want you to fuck me.”

Weekend Excerpt–Pandora’s Birthday Edition

JON new cover

It’s my birthday, but I’m giving you a gift!

I’m celebrating my birthday on October 14 with a 5-day giveaway of Just One Night, my naughty little novella.  From October 14-17, you can download Just One Night for FREE!  Afterward, if you could leave a brief review, I would appreciate it more than I can say.

How about an excerpt to wet your whistle?  Or whatever…

     The pair parked themselves at a tiny table at the edge of the piano bar, the first place they’d come to in their search for a cocktail.  Katie watched him as he approached the bar and ordered for them.  She couldn’t get over how handsome he was, how he’d come outside looking for her.  This was exactly what she needed to take her mind off of her man problems back home.

She smiled up at him as he returned to their table carrying a margarita for her and a Scotch for himself.  “Cheers,” he said, raising his glass to hers.

“Cheers,” she murmured in return, and she sipped gratefully, counting on the liquid courage her glass offered.

“You know, we’ve gone about this all backwards.”  He rested his drink on the table and offered his right hand.  “My name is—“

“No!  No names,” Katie quickly interrupted.

Mac blinked in surprise.  “No names.  Why no names?”

“Just…because,” she stammered.  “No names, no personal information, we’ll just…keep it casual.”

“Keep it casual.”  Mac frowned.  “Okay.”  He gave her a curious look.  “Do you want me to leave?”

She shook her head, red curls swinging.  “No, I’d like you to stay.”

He gave a relieved smile.  “Good, because I’d like to stay.  So…no personal information.  Do you want to talk about work?”

“Oh, hell no!”

“Um, how about that weather?  That’s some pretty great weather out there tonight.”

Katie laughed lightly.  “I don’t mean to be a pain.”

Mac smiled back.  “You’re not a pain, exactly.  I just have to figure out the rules.  And you’re here with three other women?”

“You could see that in the dining room.  Where you were staring,” Katie observed.

“You know that because you were staring back,” he countered.

“And you’re here with two other men.”

Mac nodded.  “My brothers.  Oops!  Was that personal?”

“Now you’re making fun.”

He smiled ruefully.  “Maybe just a little bit.  This is kind of a bachelor party.  My kid brother is getting married.”

“A bachelor party?”  Katie laughed lightly.  “Shouldn’t you be getting back to the debauchery?”

Mac laughed.  “Not much debauchery with those two.  My older brother’s been married for years and Tommy’s head over heels for his fiancée.”  He glanced up at Katie.  “Oops!  More personal information.”

Katie sighed and sipped her drink.  “My friends and I get together for a week every summer.  We’ve known each other since high school.”

“There now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?”

Katie nodded firmly.  “We’re even, that’s all.”  She rested her forearm on the table and toyed with her glass.  Mac did the same, and as he did, his arm brushed against hers.  She made no effort to move away from him.  He intentionally rested his arm against hers, noting the electric charge he felt, wondering if she felt it, too.

Glancing up, he saw that she was watching him intently.  “So…you don’t want any personal information.  You don’t want to talk about work.  You don’t want me to leave.”

Katie shook her head.

“Okay, well we’ve got that settled.  What do you want?”  He watched her expectantly.

She stared at her glass as she swirled the remainder of her margarita.  Her buzz from the dinner wine combined with the icy cocktail made her feel bold.  She looked back up at Mac.

“Do you really want to know what I want?  I want just one night.  Just one night of anonymous, no-holds-barred, red-hot, no-strings-attached sex.  That’s what I want.”  She fixed him with a challenging stare.

“Whoa,” he breathed, eyes wide.

Katie looked down at her glass again.  “Too blunt?”

Mac leaned back in his chair, lips forming an O.  “That was blunt, all right, but I can respect that.  I’ve gotta ask, though.”  He sought out her eyes.  “Is there some guy at home waiting for you to come back?”

Katie shook her head.  “I’m not cheating on anybody.  You?”

He shook his head, too, and laughed humorlessly.  “What was it you said earlier?  Oh, hell no.”

She lightly stroked his arm as it rested on the table, delighting in the goose bumps that appeared there.  Her gaze traveled from there to his lap, which seemed to be taking an interest in the proceedings if the growing mound there was any indication.  She shifted her focus, sliding her gaze up his torso to those lips she’d noticed earlier.  God, I just want to suck on that lower lip.

She met his eyes again, saw the fire there, and knew it matched her own.  “So what do you say?”

“I say, have another margarita.  I just need to run to the little shop and pick up some…  Well, I didn’t actually expect that I’d need…”  He smiled apologetically.

Her voice was soft.  “I’ll wait right here.”

He took her hand and gently brushed his lips across her knuckles, gave her a wink, and left the bar.

Weekend Excerpt–Just One Night

JON nominee

Permit me a teeny little happy dance–my naughty little summer novella, Just One Night, was nominated for a 2016 Summer Indie Book Award for Favorite Novella!

For this weekend’s excerpt, let’s get tropical.  In Just One Night, teacher Katie Parker is spending a week of her summer on a girlfriends’ getaway cruise in the Caribbean.  Fresh off a bad breakup, she’s looking for a man for just one night of anonymous passion.  When she meets Mac Coleman, he’s just the thing to take her mind off her troubles.  But he’s convinced they’re worth more than just one night.

Here’s a snippet.

     The pair parked themselves at a tiny table at the edge of the piano bar, the first place they’d come to in their search for a cocktail.  Katie watched him as he approached the bar and ordered for them.  She couldn’t get over how handsome he was, how he’d come outside looking for her.  This was exactly what she needed to take her mind off of her man problems back home.
