This past weekend, I've got a few new books for my Nook.

Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble by H. P. Mallory 

Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat and a quirky best friend.

Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!

Word of Jolie’s incredible ability to bring back the dead spreads like wildfire, putting her at the top of the Underworld’s most wanted list. Consequently, she finds herself at the center of a custody battle between a villainous witch, a dangerous but oh-so-sexy vampire, and her warlock boss, Rand.
Barnes & Noble

Beauty Dominates The Beast by Hannah Hale 

A curse is placed on an arrogant prince for his selfish lustful misdeeds upon the village women by a seductress witch one fateful drunken night, turning him into a beast. The only way to break the curse is by the beast's submission to a virgin maiden. Could the arrival of the unexpected beauty, vowing to save her brother, be the key to breaking the curse?

Erotic short story, only for those 18+.

It is Tuesday! Time for some teasers.

Today's sexy snippet is from my current work-in-progress, Caressed by a Crimson Moon (Rulers of Darkness #3)

~ Eva could not find her voice. Her throat was dry and tight. She hated how good he felt atop her and loved it at the same time. He shifted, his erection pressing between her thighs. Her already rapid heartbeat doubled, if that were possible. Her breaths came in gasps, her breasts brushing his solid chest with every breath.
Hadrian groaned, his cock strained against his pants and when he shifted…God, her body was soft where it should be and leanly muscled. He wanted to strip her then and there. He brutally fought the need to claim her here in the snow. His gaze traveled over her face. Her cheeks were flushed with anger; her amber eyes shimmered with lust, and her scent…God, that vanilla scent. Unable to resist, he leaned his head down and pulled aside her jacket. Her pulse tantalizingly danced for him and he traced the spot with his tongue. She shivered beneath him, her hips rocked sweetly, softly against his and he ground into her.
Panting, she said, “Get off of me, leech.”
A wickedly delicious smile curled the corners of his lips. “No. I rather like the position we are in.”~

~  And right now, she wanted to feel his hands on her body, his lips against her skin, and his—
 “Touch me,” Eva managed to gasp.
His black eyes narrowed. He spun her about, forcing her back against his chest, his hands gripping her hips as he pressed her front towards the hedge.
Heaven help her, a bolt of dangerous excitement ran down her spine to curl her toes. She pressed her hips back and groaned at feel of his hard cock against her ass.
“Do you know who I am?” he asked.
“Y-yes.”
“Who?” His demand was rough and, God, she loved the anger that laced his voiced. On some level, she knew she was losing her mind. She did not care. She wanted this vampire. Primal, sexual need coursed through her in sweet agonizing pulsating waves.
“H-Hadrian Lu-Lucretius,” she answered.~

Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years.

But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.

Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.

While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

Question of the week:  This week's question comes courtesy of Shannon from Cocktails and Books.  Which song reminds you of a favorite book or character?

Where do I begin?! There are so many that remind me of my favorite characters (from my Rulers of Darkness series. Music is a huge inspiration.)


Staind - It's Been Awhile http://youtu.be/araU0fZj6oQ
This song has influenced Dimitri, Gabriel, and Hadrian from the Rulers of Darkness series as well as a Mr. Deathly-Seductive that has yet to be named, who will be featured in an upcoming series.
I absolutely LOVE this song. I can feel the pain, the love, the need and it translates into my characters.

Describes the main character of my upcoming release, Hadrian,  very well.
Tech N9ne - Delusional http://youtu.be/xb09HZhJNcs

Tech N9ne - Happy Ending http://youtu.be/i9y6kDgwbGs
(Love Tech N9ne!)

The relationship between Falcon and Hadrian, some hunks in the Rulers of Darkness series.
Dr. Dre & Eminem

The above 3 are among a list of many. For more songs, visit my wesbite forum.

Tuesdays just got sexier.



            ~ Victoria kissed him soundly again on the lips before trailing her tongue down his throat. She released her hold on his trousers and they fell to the floor, his manhood standing proud and now staring her in the face. She tugged on her bottom lip nervously and then she looked up at him. Dorian’s eyes were black and whirled with desire and defiance. He wanted this too, he needed this, but he would deny them both. She would not let him.
            Dorian closed his eyes in ecstasy as Victoria’s tongue swirled up his shaft. Her mouth was like fire surrounding him, drawing him in. He clenched his teeth as lust, yearning, hunger, and thirst surged
through him. Her lips were so soft, her tongue was so hot, and he knew he could not let this go on. He tried to speak but the words would not come as sensation after pleasurable sensation lapped at him with every stroke of her tongue.
            He yanked her to her feet and claimed her lips with a soul-searing kiss while his hands ripped at her nightgown.~

Review of Demon from the Dark (Immortals After Dark #8)

Demon from the Dark (Immortals After Dark #8)
by Kresley Cole 
5 of 5 Stars
Description:


A DANGEROUS DEMON SHE CAN’T RESIST . . .Malkom Slaine: tormented by his sordid past and racked by vampiric hungers, he’s pushed to the brink by the green-eyed beauty under his guard.A MADDENING WITCH HE ACHES TO CLAIM . . .Carrow Graie: hiding her own sorrows, she lives only for the next party or prank. Until she meets a tortured warrior worth saving.TRAPPED TOGETHER IN A SAVAGE PRISON . . .In order for Malkom and Carrow to survive, he must unleash both the demon and vampire inside him. When Malkom becomes the nightmare his own people feared, will he lose the woman he craves body and soul?
(from goodreads) 
Review:

LOVED IT!
This has become one of my favorite within this series. I felt that this was a great beauty and the beast type love story. Malkom Slaine stole my heart from the first and Carrow Graie was strong and goal orientated. 
The book stars with past scenes of Malkom's life then flashes forward to Carrow in a high security cell.

Question of the week: Since it's Cinco de Mayo weekend here let's have a fun question this week! What's your favorite beverage to drink while reading?  

Normally, I read with either a cup of coffee or, if I want something a little less strong, tea. But, then there are days when you just need a drink and a great book to relax: a LARGE glass of wine is the best! How about you?

Today is Tuesday and that means - Sexy Snippets!  This Tuesday's snippet is from Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2)

Purchase

~Titling her head to the side, she revealed the elegant column of her throat and Dimitri’s thrusts paused. She ran her hands over his shoulders and down his arms, tracing his muscles. A delightful shiver shook her as his fangs unsheathed. To her amazement, he grew harder within her, his cock lengthening. The feeling made her moan and that little feminine sound shoved Dimitri over the edge.
“My mate.”
His whisper hissed in her ears as his fangs sank in deep while he drove into her. His thrusts were wild, demanding, and Kerstyn greeted every one with thrusts of her own, her pleasure mounting. The gentle draws at her throat combined with his masterful movements made her shatter again.
Dimitri growled as her orgasm sweetened her blood. None had tasted better. Perfect, erotic, and he allowed himself to slip away into the sea of greed and lust. Indulging in his hunger...~
