Swoop on Love released today from Evernight Publishing

Swoop on Love
One day as I was traveling across country in my day job, I came across a sign pointing to an interestingly named place. Unable to help myself I took the turning and found a small village. There was a large open space in front of what appeared to be an old Inn. It was deserted and in bad shape. On the grassy space was the post where the sign for the Inn must have hung in better days. I photographed it because I suddenly had the idea for the story ‘Swoop on Love’ drop into my mind.

By the time I had crossed the next county to get the highway east home, I had the plot and characters firmly fixed in my mind.

Lured to the place by its intriguing name, Jeanie was to find no owls lived there, but someone or thing does…will she realize before it’s too late?

Suspense…shifters…sex…and love

Jeanie explores her new neighborhood and finds a strange little road leading to a place with an intriguing name. Owlswick. It’s Saturday and she has no plans, as usual, why not drive down this road? What she finds there is even more fascinating than the place name, and to her delight, a very attractive man lives there. Too bad he’s furious with her for taking a photograph. Why is that? What will Jeanie find when she checks the picture out at home later?

A love story, graphic sex scenes and a twist of fantasy suspense, 18+

Jeanie did as she was told and brought the car to a stop down the driveway of the furthest empty house. She switched off the engine and turned to him.

Nathan brought her face to his and kissed her urgently. “No one will see us here. Let’s get out. I’m desperate to hold you close.” His breathe came in snatches. He ached for her body against his. His desperation ate at his composure. He kissed her hard until his lips hurt.

Her kiss matched his and she bit his bottom lip.

“Let’s get out.” It was a plea through his passion bruised lips. He let her go.

She nodded and opened her car door. She turned back to him, ran her fingers along his jaw, and her touch sent waves of lust straight to his cock.

They kissed softly once more and then both got out of the car.

Nathan walked quickly to her side and crushed her against him. He dragged her T-shirt up and off, kissing her face as he dropped it onto the car bonnet. He took her bra off and then wrenched his own T-shirt off. He crushed her against his chest and groaned into her shoulder as he felt her breasts against him. Her nipples grazed him, inviting his fingers. Her skin against his was almost too much to take. He thrust his hips against her as he kissed her hard.

She stroked along his back.

He shuddered with desire. “I need you.”

He dragged her jeans down her hips. She sucked on his neck. It sent him over the edge and with a low groan, he let her go to drag his jeans off.

They were both almost frantic. It took seconds for them to be naked. Nathan lifted her onto the car bonnet and spread her legs to stand between them. He kissed her as he caressed her wet pussy with his fingers. A ragged sigh of desperation escaped him as he slid a finger into her and she moaned against his lips. He withdrew his finger to add another. He pushed two fingers in and then out of her pussy, finger fucking her, his tongue in her mouth, his cock rock hard and leaking against his stomach.

Welcome to guest author Amber Skyze who tells us about submitting to publishers experience

Hi Amber, 
Welcome to the blog with your 

Newbie Advice

This December will mark my 5th anniversary of publishing erotic romance. Sure I published for years prior. I’ve written for non-fiction for magazines, Chicken Soup books, True Romance and True Confession magazines. I’d written books, but never sent them out. I cringed with fear when I thought about sending out my babies to an editor. I feared I’d be laughed right out the door. That little voice inside my head kept saying ‘who do you think you are trying to write erotic romance?’
One day I hushed that voice and submitted three manuscripts to Ellora’s Cave. They had a call out for their Birthstone theme series. I figured, if I’m going to submit, I’m going to go straight to the top dog at the time! After a six month waiting period two were rejected. One of them was Unwrapped, formerly titled Mistletoe Studs. The other the sequel to Unwrapped – One Tasty Night.
BUT one…one special story didn’t get rejected, Splashing Good Time. I still love Nathan Donovan. He’s sexy, smart and isn’t afraid to fight for what he wants – Reese Collins, an older woman. And ladies he knows how to please his woman!
I’ve published with a handful of publishers over the last five years. Some are gone and some I continue to publish with.
On October 30th I’ll see the release of my 33rd book – Going for Broke with Ellora’s Cave.
So my advice to anyone starting out – submit your work. Sure you can’t get rejected if you don’t send your story out, but you can’t get accepted either!

Here’s a little taste of Going for Broke –

Deacon Burke has a singular goal—to win back the Las Vegas casino swindled from his father years ago.
Businesswoman Holly Perkins is equally determined to gain control of the Pleasure Palace, the decadent casino where anything goes—including exhibitionism and master/slave play. A corporate raider, she’s eager to put down roots in one location while running a business she loves.
When Deacon spots Holly in front of the casino it’s lust at first sight, and soon she’s submitting to him during a blistering-hot encounter. But how will he react when he learns of Holly’s agenda? All bets are off in their high-stakes game of carnal cravings and ultimate control.
Publisher’s Note: This title was previously released elsewhere under the title Hit Me, and has been revised and expanded for Ellora’s Cave.
A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Read an Excerpt:

Put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be walking through the door.
Deacon rubbed his eyes. They burned from being sleep deprived and the bright lights didn’t help. It was nearing midnight, but who could tell in the city that never sleeps? He stopped to glance up at the majestic building. The four golden caps made it appear as if it were a true Palace. The design had been created with that in mind. Darius Burke had a dream. He’d wanted to build a casino that reminded people of royalty. He’d wanted them to feel like they were special when inside. For years he’d succeeded. 
Put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be walking through the door.
The one verse of the incessant Christmas song filled his mind as Deacon climbed the stairs to casino. Sure he changed it a bit to suit his needs, but that was his prerogative.
The flight in from Hong Kong seemed to drag on longer than it should have, but he closed the deal. They would gain a foothold in Hong Kong with their latest fragrance. The time had arrived for him to close another deal. The most important one.
Put one foot in front of the other and soon you’ll be walking through the door.
Deacon adjusted the laptop bag dangling from his left shoulder. He lifted his right foot and placed it on the concrete stair. Gold speckles glittered the front staircases leading to the entranceway.
Each step he took was painful to his weary feet and heavy heart. He hadn’t stepped foot inside the casino or Vegas for that matter in nearly ten years. The day had finally arrived. He was coming home after many years away. Deacon Burke was one step away from reclaiming what rightfully belonged to his family – the Palace of Pleasure.
Though when his father owned the Palace the top floors known as the Pleasure part of the casino didn’t exist. Deacon could see his father rolling over his grave imagining the things that took place in the Pleasure area. Not that Deacon minded. Sex was an enjoyment of his. There was something about cherishing a woman’s body that brought out the animal instinct in him. He also didn’t mind doling out a spanking or two. Having a woman bent over, hands tied behind her back getting spanked, got him overheated every time.
He stifled a moan, while fighting the hard-on that grew in his black slacks.
Maybe he’d partake in a little fun before meeting with the current owner. Why not try out the merchandise? Not that it would change his mind on reclaiming the casino. It belonged to the Burke’s and Deacon would stake his claim, no matter what stupid stipulations they put on him.

Read a hot excerpt 18+ featuring Nathan

They fell into each other’s arms. Nathan pulled her close and kissed her softly. Jeanie responded to him. She pressed against him with such passion it filled him with a longing he’d not experienced for many years. He drew back from her and rested his forehead against hers. They breathed against each other for a moment before Nathan kissed her again. Down her neck, across her throat, up to her ear, where he lingered and whispered, “You’re so lovely.”

She pushed closer and he cupped her bottom, pulling her in so that she could feel his cock hard against her. It felt so good to press against her, that he lost himself in kissing her. He nibbled her bottom lip. At her gasp of desire, his stomach clenched and his cock jerked. He slid his tongue against hers and kissed her until he couldn’t breathe. Her body felt so right against his, and he savored the taste of her lips, the softness of her ass in his hands. His heart pounded and although he hadn’t set out to, he wanted it all to be real. He thrust against her, ramming her back against her car. She clung to him, murmuring low sounds of pleasure. His cock was so hard he thought he might come right then when she smoothed her hands down the back of his thighs, leaving a trail of heat through his jeans.
