Blackthorne ~ Available Now

Leave a comment

“And all that’s left is the ghost of your smile…and the whispers in the night…”

Okay, not really, but with the release of Blackthorne, the Heart of Fame series has come to an end. For those that have been with me from the beginning of this journey through Nick Blackthorne’s world, I thank you. For those new to the Heart of Fame series, I hope you enjoy Blackthorne (it totally can be read as a stand-alone).

For those that are sad the series has come to an end (I know there are at least one or two of you out there) don’t worry. While the series may be finished, there are still plenty of stories to be told in the Heart of Fame world.

It All Began With Tropical Sin…

A long time ago I wrote a novella called Tropical Sin. It was part of the Bandicoot Coveseries, along with books from Jess Dee and Vivian Arend. In Tropical Sin, the readers got to meet a disallusioned rock star called Nick Blackthorne. Nick was only ever meant to be in that one book. But he wouldn’t shut up and before I knew it, I was writing his story, Love’s Rhythm, the first book in the Heart of Fame series. Who would have thought there would be 7 more to follow…
Blackthorne

And so we come to the last book of that series. Book Eight. Blackthorne. For those of you who have been with me from the beginning of the series, this is Josh’s book. Josh, who we first met as a 15 year old small-town country boy who’d grown into his teenage years without knowing who his father was. Suffice to say, I shed quite a few tears while writing this book.

Rhythm is in his genes. She is in his heart.

Caitlin Reynolds doesn’t care if the rock star lookalike trying to get into her bar is who he says he is. Sticking to the rules is a big reason the Chaos Room is the hottest velvet rope in Sydney.

Okay, so he’s freaking hot, but she’s been ignoring her hormones since her fiancé left her to go be a doctor in Somalia and then went missing.

After a shattered knee ended his promising soccer career, it seemed only natural for Josh Blackthorne to follow in his father’s rock-god footsteps. Now he’s a megastar, lusted after by women—and men—the world over. But he’s been in lust with Caitlin since he saw her picture years ago.
When Caitlin realizes Josh is who he says he is, she’s the first to make it right. But no matter how badly his seduction makes her want to melt into his arms, there’s a ghost hanging over their heads. A ghost who turns out to be not so legally dead after all…

Product Warnings
Contains a rock star who’s livin’ the dream and livin’ it large, a self-made businesswoman with a weakness for a cheeky smile, and a red-hot battle of tormented wills. May stimulate a desire to throw your panties onto the nearest stage.

A Snippet

He kissed her silent. Stole the rest of her ridiculous statement with a soft brush of his lips over hers.

No tongue, not even enough pressure to really feel. Just a feathering of his skin against her skin, just a lingering melding of their breaths.

He held her, aligned their hips, pressed the steel pole of his erection to the soft curve of her sex and silenced her protest with a kiss softer than the caress of a butterfly wing.

For a perfect moment, Caitlin forgot the weird reality of her life and lost herself in that kiss.

For a perfect heartbeat-long moment.

And then it was over.

He drew his head away from hers, seeking out her eyes with his gaze. “Or maybe,” he whispered, his voice a little shaky, “you just wanted me to do that?”

Pressing her palms to his chest, Caitlin pushed him away.

Heat filled her cheeks. “Boy, have you got an ego. I didn’t want you to do that.”

Liar.

Josh seemed to agree with the traitorous little whisper inside her head. He let out a low laugh, an entirely devious sound her body reacted to with entirely too much need. “Ego or not, I think you did. And I think you liked it as much as I did.”

When I Experienced My Very First Menage…

1 Comment

I can’t lie. I was nervous. Big time nervous. Two men? All those hands? What if things didn’t fit? What if limbs got tangled? What if I did it wrong??

But, after months of pestering and pestering I finally said yes. Okay, I’d do it. I’d write a menage.

Hee hee hee.

My editor, Heidi Moore, had been asking me to write one for quite a while, but up until that point I was mainly a paranormal/sci-fi writer with only two people involved in the actual sex part. But Heidi dared me and I’m afraid I’ve yet to turn down a dare. So I opened my laptop and wrote the first thing that came to my head…

Joseph Hudson tossed his snowboard aside, threw his goggles over his shoulder and swung a fist at his best mate.

In that very moment, I knew who my two lucky heroes were going to be: Joseph Hudson and Rob Thorton. Two sexy, Aussie businessmen; one who is all work and no play and one who lives life on the edge. Once I knew who they were, their heroine, the woman who sweeps them both off their feet, instantly made herself known to me:

Jenny McCarthy lowered her binoculars and shook her head. Australians. What were they thinking?

So for my very first m/f/m erotic romance, I’d put two Aussie best friends and an American ranger in a snowed-in cabin high in the Rocky Mountains. Three people who were going to spend quite a bit of time naked, in sub-zero tempatures. How the hell was I goig to keep them warm?

This way…

“How bout we help you with your clothing?”

Rob’s murmur tickled her ear and she started, more than a little stunned to discover he’d somehow moved to stand behind her without her even noticing.

Too busy staring at Joseph?

Warm hands smoothed up her back, over her shoulders. His fingers slid up the sensitive column of her neck, brushing at her nape before skimming back down to the neckline of her jacket. There was a slight tug and before she knew it, her jacket slipped from her body, falling to her feet in a crumpled heap of fluro-magenta.

She watched Joseph watching her, his nostrils flaring again, the muscles in his jaw bunched.

I want him to kiss me.

Rob’s hands travelled her shoulders, barely touching her. The slight caress of his palms on her arms through the thin material of her thermal sent a shiver up her spine and she pulled in a shaky breath, her nipples once again hard. Oh, God.

“C’mon, Joe,” Rob spoke against her neck, his lips warm on her flushed skin. “Don’t make me say it.”

Say what, Jenny wanted to ask, but she couldn’t. The way Rob’s hands moved over her shoulders, her arms, down to her palms and back up to her shoulders again seemed to have stolen her words, a gentle caress that somehow still spoke of urgency.

Joseph swallowed, once, twice, his Adams apple working up and down his throat. And then he was standing right in front of her, so close she could feel his body heat seep into her. “You don’t have to, mate,” he said, holding her gaze with his honey-brown eyes. “Not at all.”

He lowered his head, brushing his lips over hers in a kiss that sang of such sweet hesitation her heart stopped for a still moment. Only to burst into fevered flight when he snaked his arms around her waist and yanked her against his body with a growl, his mouth crushing hers.

His tongue plunged past her lips, mating with hers. Battling it with possessive hunger.

So, there is an Australian battle after all. And I’m a part of it.

The surreal, absurd thought wafted through Jenny’s head and she whimpered, curling her arms around Joseph’s neck to press her hips to his. His cock rammed against the flat plane of her belly, a rigid stiff pole not even remotely hidden by the bulk of his snow pants. Its size and width made her head swim, or perhaps that was the feel of Rob’s hands working their way down her waist to the band of own trousers.

“You have a fucking hot body,” he told her, his fingers working their way between her and Joseph until they dipped below the elastic band of her pants. “I saw it last night in the bar. Its lush curves and firm strength revealed by the tight jeans you wore.” He slipped his fingers closer to the mound of her sex, his other hand holding her hip as he pressed his groin to her ass. “The tighter t-shirt.”

Rob pushed his hips forward, his erection—as long and as impressive as Joseph’s—nudging the crevice of her ass cheeks through her snow pants. “Still,” he whispered against her ear, lips nipping her earlobe as he did so, “I think I’d like to see more of it.”

With a gentle but insistent tug, he pulled her back to his hips, his fingers moving to her waistband. Inching it down over her hips. Her thighs. “Oh, yes. I knew you would look like this.”

Joseph broke the kiss, stepping away from her a step to stare at what his friend had revealed. “Jesus Christ,” he said, the words choked. “So did I.”

And this way…

Errr….this bit’s kinda naughty. Just a warning 😉

“I wanted you the second I saw you,” he said, pushing his hips forward into Jenny’s teasing fingers.

“The feeling’s entirely mutual.”

Her whispered confession stabbed into him. At the exact moment she stopped teasing his dick and took his erection in her hand. Raw pleasure washed through his whole body. He shuddered, his balls swelling, his sphincter contracting.

“Fuck a duck, Jenny,” he ground out. “If you squeeze that too hard, I’m going to come.”

She grinned at him, the sides of her mouth curling. “Do you have something else planned?”

He grinned back. “Yes, actually.”

Without preamble, he snared the hemline of her thermal shirt and yanked it up over her head.

“Oh, Hudo,” Rob laughed behind him, “I knew you’d be good at this.”

He let his gaze roam over Jenny’s newly exposed torso, both infuriated and aroused by the silky sheen of her black bra concealing her breasts. He reached out his hand and traced one fingertip along the ribbon-edged cup of her left breast. “I’ve always been one to rise to the challenge.”

Jenny moaned slightly, her skin rippling at the barely-touching contact of his finger. She stared up at him through half-lidded eyes, her hands resting in loose fists beside her head.

“That you have been, my friend,” Rob agreed. “And one for making bad puns. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a sweet, hot, tight and very wet pussy to eat.”

Joseph’s ass tightened again on Rob’s dirty proclamation. He hooked his fingers under the edge of Jenny’s bra, holding her gaze with his. “Bon appétit.”

He saw Rob move from the corner of his eye, knowing by Jenny’s sudden intake of breath exactly when his friend’s tongue touched her folds. “Oh.” The single word fell from her on a shaky breath and she arched her back, her knees bending as she placed her feet on Rob’s shoulders. “Yes.”

Joseph swallowed, his heart thumping. Hot lust surged through him and he tugged on the edge of her bra, working the soft cup to the side. Pulling it from her breast until her nipple popped free.

It was perfect. A beautiful dusky pink, round and pebbled and just waiting to be sucked. By him.

He lowered his head, taking the puckered tip in his mouth.

I wrote Triple Dare in 10 days. Once I started, I discovered I just couldn’t stop. Didn’t want to stop. Oh man, was it fun. I was having fun. Writing a menage was FUN! And wicked. And delicious. And naughty. And oh so very sexy.

More came after. Blowing it Off, Tropical Sin, Sunset Heat and Compliance (in the Down and Dirty box set). And all were just as fun to write. Just as sexy. But Triple Dare will, I think, always be my favourite. Your first usually is, right?

What was your first m/f/m menage? Come on, share 🙂

Oh by the way, Sami, Jess and Rhian are sharing their first m/f/m book during the week as well.

 

Meet The Men of The Outback Skies – A Week of WIP Men

2 Comments

This week, the Divas are sharing with you the heroes of their works in progress (aka WIP). Introducing them to you all, as it were.

Whetting your appetites…

Teasing you…

Taunting you…

Let’s beging with the men of the Outback Skies series, shall we?

January next year sees the beginning of my new series, Outback Skies. As you can probably guess, the series is set in the Outback, in the town of Wallaby Ridge. In that town, there’s a pub called Outback Skies, and it is in that pub that four friends catch-up every Friday afternoon…four men whose job all entail flying high in the skies that stretch across the Australian Outback.

Would you like me to introduce you to them?

Matt Corvin (Breathless for You, Book One)

Tom-Mison-tom-mison-35744973-200-200

Matt is a GP. Or more to the point, a Royal Flying Doctor Service doctor. He is also the world’s sweetest man. Which means when he lets loose his dominating sexual side, Tash, his prickly pilot, is more than a little surprised…

Evan Alexander (Burn for You, Book Two)

000•0911_SEBASTIANSTAN.pdf

Aviation firefighter, Evan is one of the most tortured heroes I’ve ever written. A broken man needing to be healed. But he’s determined not to let anyone into his heart, and that includes the woman he used to fantasize about almost half a decade ago. Of course, she’s not going to walk away from Evan. Who could?

 

Ryan Taylor (Bare for You, Book Three)

actors hugh jackman 1920x1080 wallpaper_wallpaperswa.com_22

Ryan is almost your typical Outback cowboy. I say almost typical, because he rounds up cattle via helicopter, not on the back on a horse. He’s also Wallaby Ridge’s only opening gay citizen. Which makes getting a date in a town of 700 not that easy. And then Federal Member for the Arts and Culture, Jeremy Craig arrives in town to open an indigenous art gallery…a man who, on the outside is very very hetrosexual. A man predicted to become the next Australian Deptuy Prime Minister…

 

Charlie Baynard (Better with You, Book Four)

407_1charlie_hunnam_3

There’s not much I can tell you about Wallby Ridge’s Senior Constable, Charlie. Take my word on it when I say three words sum Charlie up: enigmatic, menacing, and sarcastic. Oh, four words…but that fourth word involves a woman on Interpol’s Most Wanted list. A woman coming to get Charlie… 

So there you have the four heroes of Outback Skies. Based purely on their intro, which one would you most like to share a beer with in the pub? 🙂 

 

 

It All Starts With Sex Under A Desk…

It all starts with sex under a desk…

After yet another month without a lead singer, the band Synergy is on the verge of calling it quits. Which drives Jaxon Campbell, keyboardist and perpetual player, to do something dangerous—hit up a woman with contacts—and curves—in all the right places. Trouble is, the last time he saw her, he kind of broke her heart. And stole her cherished, autographed AC/DC album.

Natalie Thorton, Dean of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, knows everyone who’s anyone in Australia’s music industry. She’s driven and utterly professional and doesn’t have room in her schedule for relationships.

When Jaxon strides into her office, all of Natalie’s suppressed sexual urges—the ones born in Jax’s arms—surge to the surface. He wants something from her? Well, she wants something from him. Orgasms. Lots of them.

How can Jax say no? He’s never forgotten her, and it’s not like they’re going to fall in love. But just who’s playing who? And whose heart is going to fall first?


Product Warnings
