#MidWeekTease Winter's Embrace ~ Wayward Magic #paranormal #fantasy #romance #WaywardMagic

11 short stories and novellas full of magic and intrigue. From sinfully sexy to toe-curlingly cute, this ultimate paranormal romance collection has everything you need and more to keep your heart pounding and keep you at the edge of your seat. If you like break-the-mold magic and fantasy romance then you’re going to want to sink your teeth into this.

This week's tease comes from my contribution, Winter's Embrace, including a frisky bunch of faeries.

Bianca wrapped her in a hug and Verte looked to Grey for guidance. He merely nodded, so Verte hugged the Winter princess in return.
“You are so warm,” she mused. “Does she ever burn you?” Bianca asked Grey.
“Not since the ceremony.”
Verte knew her cheeks were coloring again. A mixture of embarrassment regarding the public nature of their first coupling and shame that she hurt him.
“Isn't that amazing?” Bianca said, touching Verte's cheek.
Grey nodded. “Just like a human.”
Bianca's cold hand caressed Verte's cheek. Her magic seemed to be locked away, so Verte smiled, glad someone was friendly. Everyone so far had been as icy as their home. When Bianca leaned forward to kiss her, however, Verte leaned back and looked around the princess to her husband.
He chuckled and shook his head. “I'm afraid you're not her type.”
Bianca looked over her shoulder, glancing up and down at her brother. “And you are?” she asked.
Verte bit her lip to avoid laughing. She tried to keep her expression neutral, but couldn't manage, not half as good as the Winter fae at hiding her emotions. She gasped when white hands cupped her bosom.
“Grey?” she asked in a squeak.
“That's enough, Bianca.”
She pulled her hands back, crossing them over her own spare chest and pouting. “Can I at least watch you some more?”
Verte's jaw dropped in surprise. The white faerie took a step toward Grey and slipped her hand under the hem of his shirt. It slid up to reveal the silvery hair on his belly. Verte's tongue flicked out to moisten her lips, keenly aware that her husband hadn't finished what he'd started. Bianca’s interruption, an inconvenience at first, grated.
“Please?” Bianca’s hand drifted down.
All the Summer faeries were related on some level. However, she wouldn't think of being sexual with one of her brothers in the royal line. Her eyes must have given her away.
“We don't share blood,” Grey explained to her. “When a new fae is born without color, they go to Mab.” Bianca knelt to kiss his exposed skin and open his pants.
“I could go,” Verte offered, turning and searching the room. There should be a door somewhere; this was a suite after all. She wasn't jealous of the white faerie. Although she'd grown more and more fond of Grey in the short time she'd known him, their marriage was arranged. She didn't imagine she held any sway over him, yet she couldn’t see herself with another faerie either. It just didn't seem right. The two she'd been with were nothing like Grey.
“Stay,” he ordered, freezing her feet to the floor.

Hop around and read all this week's teases!!

#TanatlizingTuesday Oni 6 #Japanese

Today I'd like to share another 200 words from Oni. I hope you like it!

“Chiba-san? I am Suzuki-san. You are looking for a room?”
Hotaru’s eyes widened. “You want to take me to the room?”
Suzuki-san laughed and Hotaru turned red as it dawned on her what he had meant and what she had said. She covered her face in shame.
“Don’t be embarrassed. Come in. There is little there, a futon, I think.”
Again, she imagined lying with him but stepped hard on that idea as she followed him. He really had burnt himself completely. She touched his arm without thinking and snapped her hand back.
“Forgive me, but doesn’t that hurt?” she asked, pointing to his arm.
He looked from his limb to her, confusion darkening his expression.
“The sunburn. It is very bad.”
“Oh. It’s not a burn. I have strange skin. It’s always this color.” He opened one of three doors in the apartment. As promised, a futon took up some of the floor, but otherwise the room was empty.
Hotaru squeezed past him, looking over the space. It was small, but she didn’t have many belongings. She turned back to her roommate and introduced herself properly. “Hotaru Chiba, and I would be happy to live here.”

Shy Yet Sexy ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #Saturday7 #MSS178

Wow, another Saturday that is suited to Not Your Bitch! Zoe is very shy, in now small part because her self-esteem is terrible. This small snippet should give you an idea.

Something caught the corner of her eye and she turned. A small smile touched her lips when she recognized Mrs. Brown's nephew. She didn't even know his name. Today he was wearing a white tee beneath his barely buttoned plaid shirt and his jeans lacked air conditioning. He was chatting with another girl, one much better looking than Zoe. He turned his head in her direction and she stuck her nose in her book again.
Unable to resist, she glanced back. He was laughing at something the girl had said.
He is probably just wondering who the freak staring at him is.

You can grab a copy of Not Your Bitch on Amazon. I could also use some help with promotion of my upcoming boxed set. If you can give us a bit of Thunderclap support, I'd really appreciate it!

Now hop around to all these other sexy snippets!

Here's a blast from Jacqueline's past.

Jacqueline set down her fork and the kale impaled on it. She didn’t recognize the voice. Maybe they were calling for someone else.
“Queer Jackie Madison?”
Snatching up her napkin, Jacq held it to her mouth as she fought down bile. No one had called her that in years.
“It is you.”
She didn’t look up, afraid that when she did, she’d find herself back behind the school with fists landing on her between mocking words.
“Wow, look at you. You look great! I guess I shouldn’t call you that, should I? What is your name now?”
Taking a deep breath and settling her stomach, Jacqueline risked raising her head. The man standing beside her table was from her high school, but it wasn’t one of her tormentors. Liam McDonald had never said two words to her, good or bad; he stood and watched.
“Jacqueline. I’m Jacqueline now.”
“No kidding. May I join you?”
She longed to say no, but he was already pulling out the chair. His gaze wasn’t mocking. He didn’t look down at her, and his smile didn’t slip a whisker. Her cheeks tightened and it took a moment to realize she was smiling back at him.
“I’m only around for the weekend, business. You work here?” He looked around the cafeteria.
“Yeah, in pharmacy.”
“I never knew you were smart.” He looked to his fingers which drew circles on the table. “I never knew you at all. I’m sorry about that, and for calling you… fuck, I’m a retard. I’m going to shut up and let you talk, okay? Probably safer for both of us.” His eyes found hers and her mouth went dry.

Is he really turning over a new leaf? Is this reminder of past trauma going to set Jacq back again? The set comes out in April!

Now get teased by all these other great authors!

#TanatlizingTuesday Oni 5 #Japanese

Another Tuesday, Another teaser. Here's a little more from Oni.

Hotaru shook her head and scratched out her doodle. It was obviously the giant from the train station, his angular face and tousled hair escaping his hat.
On the platform, phone in hand, she checked her messages.
There was a reply to her request for a room. This offer was in the perfect place, just one stop away. She could save a lot in train fare. She should call and set a meeting but couldn’t resist the temptation to stop in.
It was as easy to find and she knocked with no expectation that anyone would answer. Contrary to her prediction, the door swung open to reveal the same sunburnt giant that had distracted her all day. Now she could see his bright green eyes and how his hair, tousled and free of his hat, curled up in two places like horns.
Her legs wobbled slightly as he scrutinized her as keenly as she examined him. He’d taken off his jacket, revealing the same color across his well-defined chest and abs, the latter of which sported curly dark hair that trailed down and behind his printed leather pants. For the second time that day, she gazed at his pants wondering what sort of delight was hidden in them.

Falling Star Valentine new RoTG #MMromance #SciFi from Evernight Publishing and E.D.Parr

Falling Star Valentine new RoTG #MMromance #SciFi from Evernight Publishing and E.D.Parr

Fashion photographer Dale Walker takes a train to his hometown, relocating there after nursing a broken heart for six months in another city. His train makes an unscheduled stop to take on a mysterious passenger.
For a long time, Valentine Steel has hoped to meet a man who will love him. When he sees Dale on the train, he’s overjoyed to find a vacant seat beside Dale.
Dale’s immediate attraction to Valentine has him on edge. He doesn’t want another broken heart, and yet Valentine is so magnetic Dale’s frozen heart begins to thaw.
Valentine sets out to charm and capture Dale in his sparkling aura. He can’t let the chance to have Dale’s love slip away. This could be his last chance to stay on Earth the planet he loves.
All new teaser
He gazed at Dale’s mouth as his stomach tightened and he experienced an intense longing to kiss Dale. He hungrily watched Dale’s lips move.

“I don’t want to trouble you with my sad little story.”

Dale’s stoic expression touched Valentine. He felt a thud in the region where his heart was. Then a ripple of tenderness radiated to every part of his body and his heartbeat grew strong.
“Oh, but you must. You wouldn’t trouble me. There’s no shame in having a sad story. I had one myself some years ago.” He pushed his hand over the short distance of the table, longing to touch Dale.

Dale took a deep breath and Valentine knew he was going to share his story.
“I broke up with someone, a lover … it hurt to stay in the same city. I’d moved there for this person and now … there’s no need to stay.” Dale stared at Valentine’s hand and edged his own along the tablecloth.

The server arrived at the table with their order.

Valentine waited, impatient now, until the server spread the food before him and Dale, then left.

“I’m sorry. Do you still love this person?” He avoided saying man, although he knew it was a man. Dale’s sexual preference was apparent in the way he looked at Valentine. His eyes traveled over Valentine’s face with a particular gaze only a gay guy would make. Valentine had long searched for a man who made his heart leap the way the sight of Dale did. When he’d heard Dale reminisce about a man, who could only be an idiot to let Dale go, he’d been elated. He’d yearned for Valentine’s Day then, when he could show himself.

From the author:
The story ‘Falling Star Valentine’ was inspired by shooting stars. We all know shooting stars are falling meteorites, but the romance remains when one streaks across the midnight blue sky. When two, in close succession, zoom over the night vista as you stand on your hotel balcony, it’s a sight to behold. I travel a little with my day job and in the autumn of 2016, I had to travel a lot more than usual. One night when I couldn’t sleep because I was churning worries around, I went out onto the balcony of the hotel room I was staying in and stared up at the sky. The night sparkled cold and the sky displayed an array of stars suddenly seeming only meters away a shooting star flew across my line of vision, then another as if it followed the first.
I’m a die-hard romantic and immediately my sweet but sexy character, Valentine Steel, had formed in my head. He’s Falling Star Valentine on his way to visit. Will he find love?
