LIKE A MOTH TO THE FLAME

Blurb:

Ramona knew, for someone as sexually inexperienced as herself, falling in love with a heartbreaker like Ari Tarasios was a pretty stupid thing to do. Not only is Ari a client at the place where Ramona works, Ari is also a swinger who makes no secret of the fact he likes to swing both ways.

What Ramona doesn’t know, however, until Ari invites her over for a swim and dinner at his house, is that the sexy swinger likes to take his pleasures in triplicate—he also enjoys to watch and be watched. And so does his equally handsome friend Darius Stewart. With her pride at stake, Ramona tries to mask her inexperience until she realizes she’s in way over her head. All she can do now is turn tail and run... Or stay and savor every single moment?

^ ^ ^

...Darius returned with a tray containing three glasses, three bottles of beer, and a couple of cans of soda. “What would have been bad for Darius?” he asked.

“If we’d started without you. Rami’s getting impatient, so can you please put that stuff down and join us before she attacks me?”

After setting the tray on the nightstand, Darius took a handful of small silver packages from the top drawer of the bureau, gave one to Ari, and dropped the others on the nightstand.

Darius then got behind Ari on the bed, pulled Ari up into a kneeling position and began to stroke Ari’s cock, sending Ramona’s blood pressure spiraling as she again watched the play of emotion on their faces. Since Ari was fully aroused, Darius suggested Ramona take the condom Ari had just opened and put it on him.

The last thing Ramona wanted to do was highlight her inexperience by showing any reluctance to do as they asked, but even so, her hands were shaking as she accepted the protective covering from Ari, then wondered what she was supposed to do next. This was something her previous lovers had always done for themselves, and she wasn’t exactly sure how to go about it until Darius said, “It’s easy—like putting a mitten or a sock on a baby. Start by covering the tip and then just roll it all the way up.”

Ramona discovered it was far easier than she’d anticipated, and when Darius released Ari and asked if she’d like to do the same for him, she managed it with no trouble at all.

“Now what?” she asked, her curiosity at an all time high as she tried to recall some of the gymnastics she’d seen on late-night TV.

MySexySaturday - January 16, 2016 - BLAME IT ON FATE

BLAME IT ON FATE
By Christiane France
Contemporary m/f

While in Europe on family business, Kate had a three-day fling with a fellow American—a brief, "ships that pass in the night" affair. She didn’t expect their paths would ever cross again, but three months later Paul shows up in Kate’s hometown. The feelings are still very much there. Fate has brought them back together and Kate’s over the moon with excitement… Until she discovers Paul has taken a teaching job at the same university where she’s a student. A university with a strictly enforced zero-tolerance policy when it comes to romantic entanglements between the staff and the students.

^ ^ ^   
“Have you ever had any problems with female students?”

“A couple. It goes with the job”

Releasing the catch on her seatbelt, Kate moved a little closer. “I can understand that. I’ll even admit to being a tad interested in you myself.”

“That’s only because you and I have a little history.”

“You think? Maybe I can use that in my defense if we’re caught making out and get hauled up before the dean. I’ll tell him we have a history, and that I just couldn’t help myself because I had knowledge aforethought. Think he’ll understand?”

He laughed and kissed her fingers. “No. He’ll say that makes it even worse. That I should have had the sense to step away before it got that far. And then I’ll say, ‘I didn’t stand a chance, dean. She maybe small, but she’s very strong, and I’m afraid she overpowered me.’”

“You wouldn’t dare say that.” She hesitated, then chuckled as she walked her fingers down his chest, stopping just below his waist. “Would you?”

IWSG BLOG – Wednesday, January 6, 2016


 

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group

 
After being my main publisher for the past thirteen years, I’m sad to announce that Amber Quill Press will be closing its doors on March 30, 2016. They did indeed set the Gold Standard in publishing. They always treated their authors fairly and honestly throughout that time. They’ve never missed a royalty payment and now they’re doing everything they can to help us move on to whatever the next stop on the road of life turns out to be.

The owners of Amber Quill are great people who I’m honored to count as friends, and I know they’re as upset as what I and all their other authors are about it.

They did nothing wrong. They simply had no choice. The sad truth being that small business cannot compete with the big guys. and that’s what’s happened here. They’re victims of the same thing that closed the mom and pop stores way back after the big box people arrived.

Life constantly moves on and changes, and it’s called progress. When I first came to the city where I currently reside, the downtown area was thriving and vibrant. The main street was lined with all the best stores. Today, they’re gone, replaced by convenience stores, loan companies, fast food restaurants, and real estate agents’ signs saying the premises are available for rent.

Right now I’m feeling a little (make that a lot) panicky and very insecure. After losing my husband this past October, my writing has become even more important to me. It’s all I had left and to lose my publisher is devastating. I’m worried I won’t find a new home for my books. That other publishers won’t like my work. That they’ll say it’s not what readers want. The only other option is self-publishing and that’s a step I’m not sure I want to attempt.

The good news is that, thanks to Amber Quill’s owners giving us advance notice, I have almost three months in which to do my research, consider the available options, and make plans for the future. At least I don’t have to rush into anything, and that’s a bonus the majority of authors in this situation are rarely blessed with.
