A Little Spark

3 Comments

If you’ve been living under a rock you might not know that I had a release day yesterday. Otherwise I’m sure you’ve seen me going on an on about it on social media, because Rob McConnell’s book is available for purchase and I’m thrilled. I fell in love with Rob while writing Burning Up for the Down and Dirty boxed set, and I’m so glad to see his story finally on sale. Rob is a seriously nice guy, but hella sexy too. I DO believe nice guys can be sexy–don’t you?

Resisting a gorgeous firefighter bent on seduction could prove the ultimate challenge.

Firefighter Rob McConnell doesn’t believe in love at first sight, until he meets Sierra Lawson and his common sense goes up in flames. The woman sets his heart alight the instant he meets her, and he could swear the feeling is mutual. But Sierra has one rule that makes a relationship between them unworkable—she doesn’t date firefighters. Still, Rob thinks the spark between them deserves a chance to grow and he’ll use every seductive talent he has to convince Sierra to take a chance on love.

Sierra doesn’t believe in taking chances. Her late fiancé took them on the job as a cop and wound up dead. Knowing she can’t go through that kind of heartache again, Sierra vows never to date another man in a dangerous profession. But when hunky firefighter Rob bursts into her life, her list of rules looks set to burn up like dry kindling. The man is temptation personified. An affair seems inevitable.

Guarding her heart? Impossible.

Excerpt

Two things woke Rob McConnell at 3:46 in the morning. The sound of a woman screaming and the acrid smell of smoke.

He shot out of bed, his firefighter instincts on full alert. Yesterday, he’d spent the better part of a ten-hour shift working with his crew and several others to dampen a factory fire before it spread to the surrounding industrial area. They’d managed to douse the flames without any loss of life, but they weren’t always so lucky. Screaming and smoke tended to make Rob spring right into action.

He was yanking on a pair of jeans in two seconds, bolting out of his bedroom in three. He stopped in the darkened hall, listening for the roar of flames. It took him a moment to realize there was no roar, and that the woman’s screams weren’t the come-and-save-me-I’m-burning-to-death kind. They were more of the Oh-God-baby-yes-I’m coming-I’m-coming variety.

Rob groaned and rubbed at his eyes with the heels of his hands. His housemates were at it again. Blair Bowman and Leo Chatfield—otherwise known at the fire station as Blue and Chats—were working their way through all the women in Ashton Heights and a few surrounding suburbs who were willing to take both of them on at the same time. Unfortunately, there were a lot of women to choose from.

Ordinarily, Rob wouldn’t care what his two workmates did in the bedroom. He wasn’t a complete stranger to the delights of three-way action himself. But the walls in the old Queenslander the three of them shared were paper thin. The noise was affecting his sleep.

Pushing out a sigh, Rob walked into the kitchen to grab the milk from the fridge. Just as he was about to lift the carton to his lips, he detected that scent of smoke again. The screams might have been nothing to worry about, but that persistent smell was a concern. He followed it to the open kitchen window, which faced the kitchen window of the neighboring house. Through the glass, he saw a telltale orange glow emanating from inside.

“Shit!”

Rob dropped the milk carton, spilling the contents all over the linoleum floor. Ignoring the mess, he yanked the fire extinguisher off its wall bracket and bolted toward the sliding glass door that led to the back patio. He ran down the stairs three at a time, vaulted over the fence between the two properties and leapt up the back stairs of number nineteen. He banged on the glass of the house’s back door, trying to rouse the single mother and three kids who lived inside.

Through the glass, Rob could see the fire had already consumed the toaster on the bench. As he watched and banged furiously on the door, the flames leapt from the toaster to a nearby tea towel and set it alight.

Where the hell were their smoke alarms? Fuck it, he thought. He couldn’t wait for Cheryl to wake up. He lifted the fire extinguisher and rammed the base of it into the door. A crack appeared in the glass immediately. With only one more blow, the whole sheet exploded. Glass fell everywhere, leaving shards on the inside and outside of the house.

A woman screamed, the sound ear-splitting. Rob didn’t even look at her as he leapt over the broken glass and headed for the kitchen. He lifted the fire extinguisher and released the safety switch. Rob gave it a few good long bursts, spraying at the flames until he’d buried the small blaze in white foam.

When the noise of the extinguisher died down, silence fell. Outside, a dog barked. A few screen doors creaked as they opened. The commotion had obviously gotten the attention of the neighbors. Rob’s heart rate began to calm as the adrenaline eased out of his system.

It sped up again at the sound of one shrill question. “Why in the world did you do that?”

Rob’s head whipped around and he got his first real look at the woman who’d screamed earlier. A woman who was definitely not Cheryl, the forty-something mother of three who lived at number nineteen. This woman was not forty, probably wouldn’t be for at least fifteen years. And if her hips had born any children, they sure didn’t show a sign of it. She was trim and slender with long hair that fell in straight dark strands all the way to her tiny waist. Which wasn’t far because she was short.

She was short, cute and really ticked off. Which ticked Rob off. Fortunately, his annoyance distracted him from the other things he was feeling. His first glimpse of the woman had knocked the breath from him and he felt like he’d been sucker punched.
Sigh. I love him!

I hope you check out Giving Off Sparks.

I see you Jess with all your sexy new covers. They are very gorgeous I must say. But I can’t let the New Cover Queen title go unchallenged. I too have some new covers that I want to show you, for books 1 and 2 in my new series entitled Ashton Heights Fire. The series is a spin off of my novel Erica’s Choice, and will involve lots of yummy two on one and one on one lovin’ starring super hot Aussie firefighters. What more could you want?

Book 1 is Burning Up

Burning Up

Burning Up is the story that was included in the Down and Dirty Boxed Set, and it’s now available as a single release.

One woman, two sexy firefighters and a whole lot of mischief.

Pam Spencer is sick of looking for love in all the wrong places. Sure, she wants a solid relationship, but if steamy casual sex is on offer, who is she to turn it down? Especially when the offer comes from not one, but two smokin’ hot firefighters.

Steve Waller has a serious thing for Pam, but she seems more interested in his mate Rob McConnell. When they both realize Pam is open to a threesome, they jump at the chance. Too bad Steve really wants Pam all to himself. But love can’t blossom out of a crazy one night three way. Can It?

Burning Up is available now at Amazon       Barnes & Noble     Smashwords    iBooks

And you want to know what book cover 2 is don’t you? The follow up to Burning Up is called Giving Off Sparks.

Rocking print releases

Leave a comment

The print release from the Divas this month rock. In more ways than one.

First off, they are 50% off at Samhain. THAT IS A MASSIVE SAVING!

And secondly, they’re both about rock stars!

1) Rhythm of my Heart: Jess Dee

Description
He rocks every woman’s world, but his heart beats only for her.Speed, Book 3Makeup artist Eve Andrews is an expert at blending into the background. Landing a job with the rock band Speed is the opportunity of a lifetime, and thankfully as close to the spotlight as she’ll ever get again—until the band’s sinfully sexy drummer turns his dazzling eyes on her.

After a scandal shook his world, Zachary Pace, a.k.a. “Jonah Speed”, has given up the one-night stands and easy lays. One look at Eve, and he senses his self-imposed abstinence is about to come to a screeching halt—but he’s confused. His grandmother foretold his destiny lies with a beautiful redhead, not a tiny, brown-haired pixie.

Under the heat of Zachary’s intense focus, Eve’s resistance melts away, but not the façade that hides her terrible secret. And when she accidentally catches a glimpse of his heart’s desire—his fated redhead—her instincts tell her to let him go…before he gets too close. Before he sees the real woman behind her mask, and her heart is left in the dust of his almost-certain retreat.

Product Warnings

This is a Speed book, so you know there’s gonna be a small element of fantasy to it. And a big element of romance. Oh, yeah, and a whole lot of sex. Sex hot enough to make you throb to the rhythm of a very sensual beat…  

Rhythm of my Heart is available now from Samhain for only $6.30. (That is ridiculously cheap for a print book!!!)

 

2) Steady Beat by Lexxie Couper

Description
He never missed a beat…until she taught him a whole new rhythm.Heart of Fame, Book 4Back when he was playing drums for rock star Nick Blackthorne, it was easy for Noah Holden to focus on the sticks in his hand. Now that the band is getting back together, he’s excited—and worried. His ADHD has made every minute of his post-Blackthorne life a chaotic mess.

His apprehension is blown away when a bar waitress makes him a proposition—and not the kind this king of drums is used to.

When Pepper Kerrigan overhears the band talking reunion, she pushes her self-doubt aside, calls on her encyclopedic music knowledge and challenges Noah Holden to a trivia contest. Her prize should she win? An audition. His? A kiss. Their smoking sexual chemistry guarantees victory—for them both.

With Pepper, Noah is finally able to control his stormy creative energy. But when his wild past catches up with him, he faces the fight of his life to keep from losing his smoky-voiced angel. The one woman who keeps his mind—and his heart—staying on rhythm.

Product Warnings

There’s a thrumming primitive sexual energy in every rock drummer’s body just waiting to be released.

Steady Beat is also available from Samhain for the ridiculous price of only $6.30.

Happy reading,

Jess & Lexxie

 

A glass of Red Red Wine…anybody?

Leave a comment

Would anyone care for a sip of my brand new book? I promise, there’s plenty to go around.

Yep, it’s the 5th of Aug, which means release day for Red Red Wine, book 2 in the Tastes of Seduction series.

If you’re looking for an emotional romance that’ll warm your heart and heat up your body…look no further.

RED RED WINE: The Blurb

She’s tantalizing…tempting…and taken. 

Tastes of Seduction
, Book 2

When Andrew Stafford’s business partner banishes him from work with strict instructions to take a much-needed holiday, the offer of five days relaxing in wine country is too enticing to refuse. As is the woman he encounters the minute he arrives at the hotel.

She’s everything Andrew’s ever wanted in a partner, and meeting her should be the answer to all of his prayers. Except for one thing—she’s strictly off limits.

Tori Worthing has never been happier. She’s about to marry an amazing man, and her life is laid out perfectly before her—until her dream winery wedding becomes an unexpected nightmare. Her heart shattered, she turns to the one place she never expected to find comfort—a stranger’s arms.

Tori and Andrew both know theirs is a rebound affair destined to end when the week is over. But when the time comes, letting her go proves to be the hardest step Andrew’s ever had to take.

Product Warnings: Jilted brides are not supposed to have this much fun. Especially when the fun involves a bottle of red, a sexy man and getting naked in the gazebo at midnight.

RED RED WINE: An Excerpt

“I think you’re amazing,” she whispered into Andrew’s neck. He smelled amazing too. Musky and masculine. She’d always loved Declan’s expensive aftershave—until right now. Suddenly she preferred the earthy, natural scent of a man.

“Me?” He snorted in disbelief. “You think I’m amazing?”

“I do. What you’re doing takes an incredible amount of courage.”

“If you want to discuss courage, let’s talk about you.”

“Me?” Yeah, let’s not.

“I think your being here, with me tonight, is incredibly courageous. Seeking happiness when you could be wallowing in self-pity.”

“Oh, I’m wallowing. Believe me.” Using Andrew for rebound sex wasn’t courageous. It was selfish.

She shifted in his lap, uncomfortable with how quickly he’d directed the conversation back to her and stunned by how much she’d wanted him.

Andrew groaned softly, and she lifted her head in time to see him grit his teeth.

“Are you okay?”

“I’m…fine.” His voice was hoarse.

She shifted again, seating herself more comfortably, and he emitted another groan, this one more anguished than the first.

“You don’t look fine.”

He closed his eyes and breathed deep. “Just…keep still, and all will be good. I promise.”

At which point Tori became aware of the hardened bulge pressing against her butt.

Ah-ha.

Mentally she shook her head, belatedly berating herself. She’d been so wrapped up in her own pain, her own need and her own pleasure, she’d failed to think about Andrew’s.

His interest in her had been obvious from the start—and it had served to increase her own level of arousal. Made her want him with a hunger that had cut through her heartache and her pain, blinding her to everything but him. But still, she’d taken, then taken again, and in her dazed state of satiation afterwards, had not thought to give. She’d simply snuggled into the hard, comforting warmth of his body and let him numb her pain.

He’d done too good a job. Not only had he numbed her to her pain, he’d numbed her to his pain too.

“You mean keep still as in don’t do this?” Deliberately she rolled her hip, so the side of her body undulated against him.

He grunted and took a good few seconds to respond. “Th-that’s exactly what I mean.”

“Oh. Okay.” This time when she shifted it was to turn in his arms and face him, wrapping her legs around his waist in the process. She would have locked her feet together behind his back, but the beam stood in her way, so she was forced to bend her knees and rest her feet on the ground. She leaned forward then and undulated her hips again, this time rolling her groin along the length of his erection. “So I can do this, and it won’t be a problem?”

It might not be a problem for him, but it sure was for her. Her action had just set her body on fire all over again.

For the second time, it took a while for Andrew to answer. “You can do that. As much as you like.” He sucked in a shallow breath. “But I reckon if you do, you’ll find yourself naked and flat on your back before you’ve taken your next breath.”

“That wouldn’t be so terrible.” No, that would be fucking amazing. Her breasts tightened and white heat raced through her body at the idea. She grinned and once again rolled her pussy over his hard cock.

Andrew surged forward, grabbing her by her waist. Her heart lurched, and she braced for impact, knowing he was about to flip her on her back.

But in an unexpected reversal of intent, Andrew dropped his hands and slumped back against the beam. He let out a frustrated moan, closed his eyes and banged his head against the beam, once, twice, three times.

She stared at him, stunned. “Y-you’re choosing a brain injury over a sure thing?” Because she was a sure thing. No question about it. All he needed to do was get her naked, and she was all his.

Well, for tonight anyway.

He banged his head again, then glared at her through one eye. “No… Fucking… Condom.”

And just like that, Tori experienced the same urge to bang her head against a wall.

Time for a Rendezvous

2 Comments

My first ever solo self publishing venture is now available! I’m so excited about this, I got a little thrill when I pressed the ‘publish’ button. Self-publishing is something I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time and Rendezvous is my way of getting my feet wet. The characters in my story, Cassie and Reed, get their feet wet, as well as a lot of other parts, lol. But this story is about more than just sex. This is a story about a couple who has drifted apart finding each other again. It’s about a man accepting the monumental importance of communication, compromise and humility in a relationship (all the gals know what I’m talking about, right?). It’s about tropical waters, warm sunshine, magical islands, sea sickness and second chances. Basically, it’s just a lot of fun packed into a small package. Kinda like me *wink*

Six days at sea with her ex… Conditions are about to get roughCover_Rendezvous

Twelve months ago Cassie Dalton fled Sydney and her three year marriage to tough city cop, Reed. Now she’s living a new life chartering tourists around the pristine tropical waters of the Whitsunday Passage on her inherited yacht, The Rendezvous. Despite having unresolved feelings for her estranged husband, she sends divorce papers in her desperation to move on. To her surprise the move shakes Reed out of his emotional hibernation and brings him to north Queensland, determined to win her back. As they spend the next six days sailing and sharing secrets, Cassie begins to wonder why she ever thought living without the man she loves was a solid life plan.

But just as she thinks all their fences have mended, Reed breaks her heart all over again…

Rendezvous is available from Smashwords Amazon iBooks B&N

Yay!

Irrepressible Jasmine out NOW

Leave a comment

Book 2 in the Wild Crush series has just been released, and let me tell you it is one hot book. Jasmine is a great character, a true ‘bad girl’ who returns to her hometown for what is supposed to be a temporary stay. She thinks she can get a little action with an old school buddy while she’s marking time in Leyton’s Headland, but her fun affair soon becomes a lot more complex than that. Jasmine has a lot of demons to face. Luckily, Aaron Sanderson is there to help her do that in the sexiest way possible! (note: there are silk neck ties and wooden rulers involved :))

Blurb – Irrepressible Jasmine

You can’t keep a bad girl down…at least not without restraints.

Wild Crush, Book 2

After an affair with a Dom turns sour, Jasmine Campbell returns to Leyton’s Headland to build up some good karma by keeping her sister’s business afloat. For that, she needs help from real estate developer Aaron Sanderson—an old school mate who’s grown up movie-star handsome.

When Jasmine knocks on his office door, Aaron can barely contain his triumph. In high school he had an unrequited crush on Jasmine, but ten years on he’s better at close encounters with the opposite sex. He thinks he knows just how to handle Jasmine—with an aloof demeanor and a firm hand.

Little does he know just how firm a hand Jasmine needs.

Jasmine figures a fun vanilla fling will cleanse her sexual palate. Yet her lover proves himself surprisingly adept at satisfying her submissive desires. And soon she’s in serious danger of doing the one thing she swore never to do: fall in love.

Warning: Contains casual sex, intimate sex, slow sex, fast sex, rough sex, roleplay sex and spanking. So basically, lots of sex and spanking.

You can download Irrepressible Jasmine at these vendors

Burning Up by Sami Lee

Pam Spencer is sick of looking for love in all the wrong places. Sure, she wants a solid relationship, but if steamy casual sex is on offer, who is she to turn it down? Especially when the offer comes from not one, but two smokin’ hot firefighters.

Compliance by Lexxie Couper

Bethany’s got a thing for two hot guys: a nerd and a jock. She’s also got a fantasy that will be mutually pleasurable for them all. She isn’t expecting complete and utter sexual domination though…nor losing her heart to one of them.

For one night Kitty will be everything Ethan and Finn want. But living out her wildest fantasies was never meant to be this good. And when the sun comes up she’ll discover she’s given them more than her body. She’d given them her heart.

Woot!

Love,

The Divas
