DRILLED – out today!

Do you remember DRILLED? 😉

This story was originally released as part of the FILTHY AND RICH box set right at the beginning of this year. Now, it’s available all on its own, with an amazing cover! ❤

Drilled

When construction worker Danni goes to the latest job site over the weekend to redo some of her crew’s sloppy work, she doesn’t expect the billionaire owners of the company, Blake and Evan, to be working overtime as well. What starts out as a flirty invitation to cool down with a swim turns hotter than Danni could’ve ever imagined. Soon Danni finds herself longing for more than a casual fling with her billionaires, but how could they ever want more with a simple construction worker?

DRILLED: books2read.com/u/3RB20j

****

I have been releasing little snippets and teasers on my Facebook Page and in my newsletter. Now, as a special treat, here is a full excerpt from DRILLED, just for you…

Danni’s heart pounded. Had this stunningly attractive man just asked her out? She was dressed in her denims and plaid shirt, the two of them in their expensive shirts and dress pants. She was sure the matching suit jackets and ties were back in their offices. Why the hell would these corporate suits want to have a drink with her?
Both men were well-built and muscled. One had his shirt open to the waist, and she could see glimpses of his six-pack abs. The other’s chest was visible above his few open buttons and he also clearly worked out. They weren’t just desk jockeys.
The one who’d asked her for a drink had thick, wavy hair that was long and glossy on top and trimmed short on the sides. And his voice was so velvety deep she thought she’d melt on the spot.
He was essentially clean shaven, with just the hint of a shadow around his jaw, whereas the other had a beard, thick and close cropped. His hair was straight and a sandy brown, but with natural golden highlights.
“I’m not really dressed to go out anywhere,” she pointed out, hoping they weren’t serious about reporting her if she didn’t join them for a drink. “I was going to go for a swim afterward. That’s why I’m wearing my bathing suit.”
She’d seen them eyeing her bikini top. The shock on their faces made her realize they thought she was blatantly revealing her bra.
“What a brilliant idea,” the sandy-haired man said. “There’s a pool in the building. Blake and I would love to cool off, too. Why don’t we all go for a swim together?”
“I’m down for that,” the man called Blake said.
“Is it a health club or something?” she asked.
“No, it’s a private pool.”
Wow, Topaz Industries was known for treating its employees well, but she didn’t realize they had a private pool. She wished she worked for them. She had intended to stop at a public pool near her town house. It was always crowded, which she hated, but she loved being in the water.
“You wouldn’t be breaking any company rules taking me with you?” she asked.
Blake grinned. “No worries there.”
“I guess that would be okay. I still have about two hours’ work.” She frowned. “Except that you wanted me to stop drilling.”
“Don’t worry about it. We’ll figure it out. Do you have a cell with you?”
She nodded and grabbed her phone from her bag and handed it to him. He tapped in a number.
“Text me when you’re done.” He smiled, his face beaming. “I’m Blake, by the way. And this is Evan.”
She shook his hand firmly. Then Evan’s. “I’m Danni.”
Evan grinned. “Well, you’re the prettiest Danni I’ve ever met.”
As they turned and walked away, she couldn’t help admiring their tight butts.
Their names were Blake and Evan. Something about those names nagged at her, but she couldn’t quite place why…

WARNING: If you are not caught up on this series, there may be spoilers below – just scroll right to the bottom for all the links you need! 😉

DirtyTalkBlissfulSurrender

Sonny has a debilitating fear of men. Tal is a scary looking tattooed bad-ass. Can Tal get Sonny past her fear and help her become whole?

After the incident with a man from Sonny’s past, Tal’s actions drop a barrier between him and Sonny that might be too devastating for either of them to get past.

Tal’s future is uncertain and Sonny has to face some things she doesn’t know if she can handle. Especially without Tal.

Although their relationship seems broken beyond repair, Tal tries to be there to support Sonny through her ordeal. Sonny finds strength in all that’s happened to her… and to Tal… and fights for what she wants.

She tries to convince Tal that despite what has happened, his nature is not that of a violent good-for-nothing as he’s come to believe most of his life. She opens herself to him, showing him her full vulnerability and trust, and they experience an intimacy and closeness neither would have believed possible.

Afterward, will Tal close up again and walk away, denying the future they could have together? Or will Sonny be able to convince him that, despite what they’ve both suffered, love can conquer all?

BIG PACKAGE – New Release!

A Big Package is coming your way today!

Warning: This one is sure to warm up chilly nights! 😉

bigpackagecover

Baby it’s cold outside…but things are about to heat up.

I missed the last bus to my sister’s for Christmas, and now I’m stranded in a bus station—in the middle of a blizzard—with a giant package covered in naughty wrapping paper.

Then he shows up: Kalen Welles, the football star from my high school fantasies—and offers me a ride. Just when the car is getting cozy, the roads get shut down due to snow. Luckily there’s a nearby cabin where we can hole up for the night.

A warm fireplace, cozy blankets, pent-up longing we both spent years ignoring… maybe I’ll be able to unwrap Kalen’s big package before Christmas morning.

But when the snow clears and the ice melts, will the former football star and the shy nerd finally get a happy ending?

I’ve been releasing snippets and teasers on my Facebook and Twitter leading up to my release day today. Here are a few of the quotes I’ve been posting…

“Ottawa? That’s where I’m headed. I just dropped my sister off to catch a bus to Tampa and I’m driving back to Ottawa now. I could give you a ride.”
Her eyes lit up, and she sat up straighter. “Really? I don’t believe it. That would be wonderful.”
He patted the box. “I even have room for your big package.”
Her eyes glittered. “Shouldn’t I be saying that?”

 

She covered her mouth, her eyes widening and her cheeks turning bright red. “Oh, God, I can’t believe I said that. My mouth gets away from me sometimes.”
He laughed and suddenly realized that her gaze had settled squarely on his crotch. When she realized where she was looking, she her gaze darted away again, her cheeks turning even redder.
“Well, between your mouth and the big package, the trip promises to be fun,” he said.

At the wicked grin on his face, her cheeks flushed a deeper red.
“Look, really. I’m not coming on to you. I just . . . it was a silly joke. Nerves overcoming my stupidity censor.”
He smiled warmly. “Don’t worry about it. I don’t think you’re coming on to me.” Actually, he had, but from her blazing cheeks, he realized this was out of character for her.
He held out his hand. “My name is Kalen Welles.”
She shook it. “I’m Holly Benson.”

MEAT – New Delicious Release!

The wait is over! Get your taste of MEAT today!

Warning: This is a hot one! 😉

Meat_300

Just one taste isn’t enough…

I ran into Rex Keene—literally—when I was trying to catch my flight and his muscled, tattooed arms stopped my fall. Then our flight gets canceled, and we’re stranded in the same hotel room together…it ended up being the steamiest night of my life. All I knew is that I had to see him again.

I just didn’t expect him to show up a week later in the restaurant I manage…as our new head chef. But the generous, tender man I spent that night with is gone; instead he’s arrogant, demanding, and terrorizing the staff. But he won’t give up until we’re together – and I’m not sure I can stay away.
Which man is real? Who is Rex Keene?

I’ve been releasing sexy quotes and snippets on Facebook leading up to my release day. Here are a few of the quotes I’ve been posting…

“I’m cold and . . .” She bit her lip.
He stood up, hoping this was going where his fantasies had gone moments before.
She stepped closer, gazing up at him with need in her doe-like eyes. She rested her hand on his chest, the feel of her soft fingers on his naked flesh causing an ache in his groin.
“I thought maybe you could help me warm up.”
He almost groaned out loud.

~ ~ ~

“I’ve got to warn you. I’m big,” he said.
She grinned and stroked her hands over his shoulders. “You know, you don’t have to sell yourself. I’m already on board.”
“No, I mean, I’m big enough you might have problems.”
She quirked her eyebrow. “Are you saying you’re more man than I can handle?”

When River set up a fundraiser to kick start her nail polish business, she never expected someone to pay five thousand dollars just to have dinner with her. But when she meets her mysterious benefactor, he turns out to be billionaire Kane Winters—the one man from her past who she never wanted to see again.

Kane is determined to right the wrong that happened to River in college—because of him. She’s been an obsession he can’t escape…and Kane wants River more than he’s ever wanted anything. So he offers her a deal she can’t refuse: marry him and her business will be success. But River’s knight in shining armor isn’t looking for a platonic business deal. He wants their marriage to be real…in every way.

MASTERED BY HER CAPTOR is out today!

MASTERED BY HER CAPTOR released today!
After the turbulent road of The Captive and this pre-order on Amazon, the whole story of Erik and Kalie is now available! Make sure you grab this tale of sweet submission while you can!
MB Captor Cover

Kalie Terron:

The man who kidnapped me has haunted my dreams for weeks. Now I’ve tracked him down, determined to convince him to give us a chance.

I’ve seen his eyes with a dominating edge. I’ve seen them filled with passion. And even filled with an intense need that rivaled my own. But now those eyes are cold and detached, as if what the two of us shared was nothing to him. But I won’t give up.

Erik King:

Kalie wants a relationship. But I’m not a romantic kind of guy. Just because she enjoyed a fantasy about being kidnapped by two strong, powerful men, she thinks she can handle what I want. She doesn’t get that what I enjoy is in a whole different league.

So I will give her the chance she’s been begging for, confident that in the end, she’ll be begging to get away from me.

The Captive - new cover
Special Bonus: I really want to ensure you don’t miss the beginning of Kalie and Erik’s story so I have included the novelette, The Captive, which is the prequel to this novella.

MASTERED BY HER CAPTOR is back!!!

MB_MasteredByHerCaptor_600

It’s back!!! MASTERED BY HER CAPTOR is available for pre-order on Amazon again!

They had decided to ban the book and cancelled my pre-order. So… if you pre-ordered it before, or want to now, it’s available!

 

Kalie Terron

The man who kidnapped me has haunted my dreams for weeks. Hot sexy dreams of his full lips moving on me. Over my naked body. Touching me in soft, intimate places.
 
As my captor, he wore jeans and a casual shirt. I hadn’t known that the man who brought my sexual fantasy to life is a powerful, wealthy businessman.
 
Now I’ve tracked him down, determined to convince him to give us a chance.
 
I’ve seen his eyes with a dominating edge. I’ve seen them filled with passion. And even filled with an intense need that rivaled my own. But now those eyes are cold and detached, as if what the two of us shared was nothing to him.
 
But I won’t give up.
 
Erik King
Kalie wants a relationship. Flowers and candlelight. Soft words spoken in front of a fire. But I’m not a romantic kind of guy. I like my sex rough and hard. And I like my women soft and submissive.
 
Just because she enjoyed a fantasy about being kidnapped by two strong, powerful men, she thinks she can handle what I want. She doesn’t get that what I enjoy is in a whole different league.
 
She seems intimidated by my status, which is good. I intend to take every opportunity to keep her off balance. For her own good, as well as mine.
 
Her unyielding determination tells me it will be difficult to convince her to back off. Thus, my only alternative is to use intimidation to scare her away.
 
So I will give her the chance she’s been begging for, confident that in the end, she’ll be begging to get away from me.

New Release – The Captive!

After a very rocky road,  The Captive is finally available!

The Captive by Opal Carew

Her ultimate sexual fantasy brought to life…

Kalie has a deep, dark fantasy about being kidnapped and taken by two strong, powerful men. Being totally at their mercy with no chance of escape. It haunts her dreams. Draws her with an overwhelming intensity.

Now her friend Becca has arranged to bring that fantasy to life, just like she’s done with their other friends’ fantasies. Kalie can hardly wait to be bound and overpowered.

But when she finds herself in the clutches of these two strangers, she is shocked at her desperate need to be possessed by the man named Erik.

Erik King feels a strong draw to the young woman whose fantasy he is helping bring to life. But he refuses to feel anything for her except the lustful stirrings derived from having her at his complete mercy. He doesn’t intend to see her again after this fantasy scenario is done. Being involved with someone as sweet as Kalie is bound to bring him pain. Just like the woman before her.

And Erik doesn’t intend to be hurt again.

~~~

Why a rocky road, you ask? Even though I had it up for pre-order for a couple of months, Amazon decided to ban it and cancel the pre-order. (For those who had pre-ordered it, apparently you were told that I hadn’t sent them the files in time, but I actually had everything to them well ahead of time, so that was a little frustrating.)

Anyway, I seem to have convinced Amazon to release The Captive after all, with some adjustments to the description and to the cover. The other vendors (Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, etc.) had no problem with the originals.

For fun, here are the “before” and “after” covers for Amazon. The other vendors still have the “before” cover. (The changes are that I shaded the area over her hip and moved part of her corset up to cover little more breast.)

Cover Comparison - Before and After of The Captive Cover

It’s still possible Amazon might decide to pull it again, so if you want to buy The Captive through Amazon, you might want to do it soon!

And, in case you’re wondering, Erik King is Mr. King from The Office Slave series, so if you love him as much as I do, you’ll definitely want to read this story! If you haven’t read The Office Slave series, no worries. This story works as a standalone too. 🙂

~~~

Note: If you already have final story of The Office Slave series, you have this story. Also, it will be included with Mastered by her Captor, which comes out on June 21st.

The Captive is also the fourth story of the Red Hot Fantasies series. You can read the stories of the other four women in The Male Stripper, The Stranger, the original The Office Slave story, and the upcoming The Bridal Affair (which will be released within the next couple of months.)

MB_CEO-Rachel-blurb-V2-Available Now

 

Rachel Clark

How did I wind up in King’s bed as his sex slave? Being totally dominated by him?

It all started when King bought the company I work for. The last time I was out of work—after handing King my resignation–it took two years before I found another position and I’m desperate to avoid that situation again. So now I’ll do whatever I can to keep my job.

But, in fact, even with me submitting to his every whim, there’s no guarantee.

King says I’m difficult and never do what I’m told–which is true—so is this simply penance for past sins? Or if I prove I’ll follow his commands without question, will he keep me on?

I don’t know. And frankly, I don’t care. When I’m in his arms, all I care about is staying there.

Forever.

But that’s not an option.

MB_CEO-King-blurbJames “King” Taylor

When I bought Bernier Electronics, I didn’t know Rachel was one of the junior executives. With our history, there’s no way I can keep her on. I need executives who will do as I say, not constantly question my every move.

I’d like to say it’s a difficult decision, but it’s not. Our past has proven she won’t fit in my management team.

But it’s never simple. When she worked for me five years ago, we had a clandestine affair. She insisted on keeping it strictly sexual, but I wanted so much more. When she left, I was devastated. Clearly, it meant more to me than it did to her.

The truth is I still want her in my bed. But I won’t hire her just for the sex.

She insists she can change, that she’ll do exactly as she’s told, but I know that’ll never work. Still, offering her the chance to prove herself—by becoming my submissive for an entire weekend—will prove to her it’ll never work. I never dominated her when we were together before, and the mere thought has me rock-hard.

I just hope I can handle losing her again after I experience the sweetness of her submission.

Excerpt:

King eyed Rachel as she sipped her juice again. He couldn’t help watching her full, pouty lips, glistening with juice as she put the glass down. When her pink tongue glided over those lips, his groin tightened.

Her long, chestnut hair was bound at the back of her head with a clip, all the ends neatly tucked in. It was longer than he remembered. Her hair had been too short to put up when they’d worked together, but he’d always told her how he’d love to see her with long hair.

Her eyes, green with specks of gold, remained fixed on her glass. He’d commanded her to be silent and she’d actually obeyed, as much a shock to her, he was sure, as it was to him.

Heat washed through him. He liked the feeling of her following his orders. But then, he’d always known he would.

When she’d called him Mr. Taylor, his heart had leapt. Of course, she always called him that in a professional setting…but here, when they were alone… His heart pounded. If she were to call him Sir, he’d probably burst at the seams.

As he gazed at her now, however, memories of the hot, sensual sessions they’d shared in his office had him longing to hold her in his arms. Longing to feel her naked body against him, her soft sensual murmurs whispering in his ear. To glide his cock deep onto her warm, welcoming body.

His cock swelled, but the band aid on her head reminded him she was in no condition to even walk straight let alone have wild, savage sex like they used to.

An even deeper craving swelled through him… to do something he’d never done with Rachel. Something he’d yearned to with a force so strong he’d had to hold himself back with an iron fist.

To dominate her. Totally and completely.

But if he’d even tried, he’d been certain she would have run for the hills. Most of the time, she wouldn’t even do what he told her as her boss. Trying to command her as his lover… Well, that was doomed to fail.

She lifted her gaze from her glass briefly, then dropped it again when she found he was watching her. At her uncertainty… the slight confusion in her green eyes… protectiveness surged through him.

He loved the fact she needed him right now. Loved that she’d agreed to stay the night so he could watch over her.

The predatory male in him couldn’t resist her frailty. Not to take advantage of her, but to take care of her. To know she was his woman and he would protect her.

Even if only for one night.
