Six Sentence Sunday #23



Happy Six Sentence Sunday! I took a break last week to finish edits on the last book in my medieval Highlands trilogy, Highland Magic. Done, and done!! Yay!!! I can't wait to dig into the snippets I missed and read the new ones this week.

As a reminder, I've been sharing snippets from my sensual novella (drama), A STRANGER'S KISS for the past few weeks. (It's available exclusively at Amazon. If you'd like to read an excerpt, click here.)

This week's snippet comes after all the dark confessions, but only a bit later in time. They are still at David's house, he's making dinner for her, he's given himself a pep-talk, and we see the tide begin to turn in the battle he's been waging within himself between his feeling that he is somehow betraying his dead wife and his strong attraction to Karen.

As her eyes opened, as her head came up, he took her into his embrace and kissed her. Not in the ravenous way his body screamed for him to do, but gently, giving her the chance to reject the surprise advance, if she so desired.
Thankfully, and after only a slight hesitation, she didn’t. Instead, she melted into him, returning the kiss with a muted purr of enjoyment. He dragged his fingers into her hair and held her head steady as he deepened the kiss, suckling her lower lip, then sending his tongue into the wine-flavored recesses of her mouth. Their tongues mated and his clothes became too tight, too constricting. She must have read his mind, because her hands moved to his shirt front and ripped the buttons from their holes.

BARNES & NOBLE GIFT CARD!!



Hi All!

Isn't this a great hop??


Today, I thought I'd do a little hi-lite of my newest release, an erotic medieval Scottish Highlands romance entitled HIGHLAND VENGEANCE (available on Amazon and Smashwords), that features a very independent SINFUL SIREN, by the name of Maryn Donald (as you will see in the teaser below, LOL!). It's the first book in my Highlands Trilogy, and has also been released as a serial novel in 6 parts. In addition to the $25 Amazon or B&N Gift Card I'm giving as a prize on this hop (winner's choice), I'm also offering up a free digital copy of this ebook to all those who leave a comment in the comments section STATING THAT THEY WOULD LIKE A COPY, ALONG WITH their email address.


Here's the book blurb:

Set in the turn of the thirteenth century Scottish Highlands, this is the story of Daniel MacLaurin, a handsome, rugged warrior-laird haunted by his past, and Maryn Donald, the beautiful, high-spirited lass destined to help him find his heart's ease.

After his mother and grandfather, the only family he has ever known, are viciously murdered in a surprise invasion when he is a lad of 13, Daniel spends years focusing on training as a warrior and rebuilding his fortress, determined to control the world around him so that nothing like it will ever happen again.

Maryn Donald is a wild child; a lass who, as the only offspring of her widowed father, has been indulged in her high-spiritedness. So much so, that she takes matters into her own hands when she sees that the neighboring clan is mistreating their horses. She impetuously steals them and then, as recompense for her crime, must wed the powerful, wealthy young laird about whom she's heard such disturbing rumors: Daniel MacLaurin.

HIGHLAND VENGEANCE is a steamy adventure romance, but it is also a family saga. It's the story of how a man overcomes the horror of his past to find love, connection, and contentment once more.

“So where’re my weapons? Maryn was lying on top of him, her chin on her crossed hands, and her finger caressing his afternoon stubble.
“I told you, the weapons will be returned to you for a price.”
Her lower lip protruded in a pout. “Did I not just pay your price? What more could you possibly want from me? A traveling minstrel show? Or, is it that I left you unsatisfied?”
Lifting his head a fraction, Daniel opened one eye and looked at her. She had to know the answer to that—he’d nearly broken the bed frame in his exuberance—but, clearly she’d resorted to sarcasm in order to show her irritation. In fact, he could almost see the steam coming from her ears. He hoped that she never grasped how often he teased her—for, most of the enjoyment was in his ability to make her blood boil believing he was in earnest. But, his mind had yet to begin functioning at full tilt, making it impossible for him to quickly think of another, more innocuous, “price” for her weapons. Resting his head back on the pillow, he shut his eye and let out a false sigh of resignation. “Well, I suppose it will simply have to suffice. Your weapons will be returned to you after our evening meal.”
Have to suffice!” she grumbled under her breath. “He likely will not be satisfied ‘til I’ve learned a few tumbler tricks in the bargain.”
Daniel grinned. The saucy image of her doing a somersault in the nude running through his mind. He knew she was on the verge of drawing blood, but could not hold his tongue. “Aye, that ought to do it.”

* * *
Daniel rubbed the sore spot on his chest above his left nipple. She’d bitten him! First she’d screamed loud enough to wake the dead and then she’d opened her beautiful lips and chomped...hard! He glared at her from the corner of his eye, watching her busily consuming a large portion of their meal from their trencher.
She squirmed in her seat and he grinned.
Ah, yes. He’d meted out the appropriate revenge for such an abuse—he’d used his skill to overcome her fury and break her willful behavior. He’d licked her relentlessly, sending her into one climax after another and each time she’d found release he’d slapped her luscious little bottom.
* * *
Maryn saw Daniel’s amusement at her discomfort and decided to ignore him. Although the hard seat of the stool chafed her tender buttocks, the pleasure she’d received had been well worth it. Her canal was still engorged from the number of times she’d climaxed, and the bud of her sex throbbed with sensitivity.
How had he known she would peak more powerfully if he gave her those swift, lightly stinging blows to her behind at its crest? She was out of her depth and he knew it, taking full advantage. She hoped one day she would control the upper hand, but knew it would probably never be. She took a deep breath and blew it out on a sigh of resignation. She supposed she must be content that he chose such pleasurable ways to teach her a lesson. Then realization dawned and she brightened, biting her lip on her smile before it turned into a wide grin of self-satisfaction. He’d lost the upper hand as well, in the end. She’d been soaked and limp, pleading for him to allow her to rest, when he’d surged into her and loudly flooded her womb with hot, liquid seed.
They’d arrived late for supper.

I am not ready for this. Dread gripped him by the shorthairs, but his conscience was a stronger combatant. She’d opened a vein just now, the least he could do was even the playing field and give her what she wanted. “Okay. Shoot.” Please, just not about the baby, okay?
