Celebrate Canada Day! with a free box set!

It’s Canada’s birthday!!! Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians!
(Okay, I’m a little late posting this.)

To celebrate, I’ve gotten together with a number of other Canadian romance authors to create a special box set with stories ranging from steamy to extremely hot erotic romance which we are giving away for free.

Some conditions apply. Well actually just one condition. You approve being added to our mailing list so we can let you know about new book releases.

I’d like to have the free box set!

Just a reminder that I have two fun releases coming out this summer.

MEAT – Coming July 26!

If you like heroes who are strong, sexy, protective, bad ass and… um… BIG (and I don’t mean just muscular), then you’ll love Rex!


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 when 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. 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?

NAILED – Coming August 23rd!

He’s about to take control of her body…and her dream.

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 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.
OpalCarew_TheCaptive800
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.
(Note: Both The Captive and Mastered by her Captor follow Mr. King from The Office Slave series.)

All books in the Mastered By series are stand-alone HEA stories with no cliff-hangers and can be read in any order.

To pre-order on Amazon:

The other on-line stores have it for pre-order, too. (They never had a problem with it!)

Luscious by T.J. Michaels

Mac was an alpha to the bone. In her case, alpha didn’t mean bitch…well, unless some bitchiness was required at the moment. It was simply her personality and style, and allowed her to successfully run a thriving business in a field dominated by men, and deal with emergencies with ease.

On the flip side of that coin, this man, her husband, brought out the submissive in her like literally no one else could. And when her man crossed his legs and let his vivid green gaze roam boldly from her head to her feet and back again, Mac felt sexy as hell. Blushing, she automatically bowed before him.

“Today, it’s you, me and some rope. Do you consent to this, MacKenzie Chalice Daniels-Ivers?”

Oh dear lord, he called her by her whole name! That was typically reserved for when she was in trouble, or when he planned something intense. Butterflies in her gut were a thing of the past as they morphed into pterodactyls. A shiver went through her whole body and settled down between the joints in her knees. A deep breath did nothing to calm her at all. But one thing was for sure–her nerves skipped around from sheer anticipation of some serious delight.

“Well?” he asked.

“Yes, of course I consent.”

“Good. Go to your play bag and get all of the red bamboo rope.”

How did he know she had that in there? Before she could ask, he said, “I put it in there two nights past in place of that rough jute stuff you had bundled up inside.”

One brow winged its way up her forehead as his words truly registered. And then her man gave her one of the most deliciously promising grins she’d seen on his face lately.

She smiled in return, shaking her head at herself, as understanding dawned. Landon had obviously planned this well in advance. Sure she’d seen the rope when she’d inspected her bag not fifteen minutes ago, but she always had some in there just in case. Easy knots for easy play was something she could handle. But all the ins and outs and its intricate uses were Landon’s domain. And it was a domain he ruled, completely.

Once she was across the room and standing over her bag, another command came.

“Put your locs up into a bun, high on top of your head. Then remove your clothes and leave them folded neatly where you stand. You may keep those sexy ass panties on that you were sashaying around the house in this morning.”

“Sashay?” she gawked.

“Absolutely. And it was a beautiful sight. Have a problem with the word, sashay?” he asked. He lowered his head and watched her through thick coal-black lashes. A smart ass comment was on the edge of her lips when he gave her the look and raised an imperious brow.

Mac blurted, “Nope. No problem at all.”

 

Dangerous Passions Box Set, Day 3: Bridger’s Last Stand by Linda Winstead Jones

150303 Quote Card - LindaWinsteadJones-1

Hello again, I hope you’re having a wonderful week! If today’s been a little gloomier than usual, just remember that there are infinite possibilities and you never know when a hero (maybe you, maybe a stranger) will emerge and save the day! That, and someone out there is probably having a worse day than you! Case-in-point: Today’s selection from the Dangerous Passions Box Set brings us two people who had a bad day that was made better by a steamy night– only to have one of them become witness to a murder. To escape danger once and for all, the two of them must hunt down the murderer and bring them to justice. Here is Bridger’s Last Stand by bestselling author, Linda Winstead Jones.

He never meant to be a hero, and she never knew she needed one… “Bridger’s Last Stand” by @LWJbooks. http://amzn.to/1D4S7NF #DPBoxSet

In the grand scheme of things, Detective Malcolm Bridger’s day was much worse than Frannie Vaughn’s.

She’d had a bad day…

As if getting fired wasn’t bad enough, the haircut Frannie got to cheer herself up was a complete disaster.

He’d had a bad day…

Homicide Detective Mal Bridger had never killed a man. Until today.

They meet by chance, and one very bad day turns into a pretty good night. But when their one night stand makes Frannie a witness to murder and puts her in danger, Mal refuses to let her out of his sight until the murderer is caught.

He never meant to be a hero, and she never knew she needed one . . .

The music came to an end, and they stopped moving. Bridger didn’t let her go right away, but held her hand and kept a steadying arm around her. “Maybe we shouldn’t blow up the jukebox after all,” he whispered.

Another selection soon took the place of the slow love song, and the spell was broken. Harsh sounds filled the bar, and Frannie jerked her head around to look at the jukebox. “That’s it,” she said, forgetting Reese and her lost job. Bridger’s arms fell away. “What?” He faced the jukebox with her, his entire body alert as he faced an unseen threat.

“That’s the noise my car’s making.” A man with a reverberating deep voice was repeating a short phrase, quick, choppy and harsh, the sound vibrating through tinny speakers. It sounded just like the engine of her ancient Buick.

Bridger relaxed visibly and led her back to the bar. “I don’t know a lot about cars, but I’d say that’s at least a five-hundred-dollar noise.”

“That’s what I was afraid of.”

They reclaimed their stools, side by side. The place was uncomfortably empty without the chattering women they’d listened to all evening. Frannie played with what was left of her drink.

It was melted, unappetizing, and she’d had her limit, anyway. But she didn’t want to leave. What did she have waiting for her at home? She loved her little house, but there was nothing—no one—waiting for her there. There were just messages from her mother and a little harsh reality, and she was in no mood to face either at the moment.

An old man, the last of the night’s crowd but for Bridger and Frannie, tossed a bill onto the table and weaved his way to the door, waving over his shoulder to Benny.

“He’s not going to drive, is he?” Frannie asked as she watched the man stumble, check the floor for a nonexistent hazard, and move on.

“No,” Bridger answered. “I’ve seen him around. He lives around the corner in that old department store they converted into apartments a couple years back.”

“Last call,” Benny said cheerfully, and they twirled around to face him as he placed two fresh drinks on the bar. “This round’s on me.”

The jukebox was silent at last. Benny was turning the chairs up on the tables that were scattered throughout the room, preparing to sweep up and close for the night.

Frannie didn’t want to go home. She played with the drink before her, stabbing at the frozen concoction with her straw and drinking nothing, delaying the inevitable. Bridger was gloomy again, as miserable as he had been when she’d first arrived and seen him sitting there staring into his drink. Maybe he didn’t want to go home, either.

They hadn’t talked about the shooting since he’d told her what happened, but it had to be on his mind. He’d saved lives today, but he’d also taken one. That couldn’t be easy. She glanced again at the gun he wore.

She liked Bridger too much. It wasn’t just that he was pleasant to talk to, or that he was a great dancer. He had a kind soul, and she’d known it after talking to him for five minutes. She sat beside a kind soul in a six-foot-plus body, a guardian angel with a gun strapped to his belt, a man who could love a woman and protect her from anything.

Two drinks and she was hallucinating. “Good night, Detective Bridger,” she said, a false brightness in her voice as she slid from the bar stool and put those ideas out of her mind. “Thanks for commiserating with me.”

He mumbled something that sounded like “any time,” but she couldn’t be sure.

“Good-night, Benny,” she said without looking back. “I’m going to make a pit stop and then I’m headed for home.”

She really didn’t want to go home, back to the house that was small and yet too big for one person, back to the messages from her mother that she would eventually have to answer, back to the reality that she didn’t have a job anymore. She was at a crossroads, and she didn’t know where to go from here.

When she came out of the rest room, she was surprised to find Bridger waiting for her. He was leaning against the wall by the pay phone with his head down and his hands in his pockets.

As the ladies’ room door swung closed, he lifted his head.

When his eyes latched on to hers her heart skipped a beat. Malcolm Bridger had cop’s eyes: eyes that had seen too much and never missed anything. How could eyes like that be anything but lonely?

“I can’t let you drive home,” he said softly.

“I walked,” she said quickly. “I wanted to show that good-for-nothing car of mine that I didn’t need it. My house isn’t too far. I don’t think it took me twenty minutes to get here.” Of course, it had started raining on her when she’d been halfway to Rick’s. Maybe walking hadn’t been such a good idea after all.

“I’ll drive you,” he said, never moving from the spot where he’d planted his feet. She had the impression it was a statement, not an offer.

She was treading on very dangerous ground, and she knew it. She should play it safe, brush him off, call a cab, maybe laugh at him for good measure. Frannie Vaughn did not make a habit of picking up strangers in bars. She was a good girl, a cautious woman. Her mother had taught her well, by bad example if not design.

So why did she have the overwhelming desire to walk into Detective Bridger’s arms and ask him to hold her tight?

Why did she want to bury her face against his chest and breathe deeply once again?

Loneliness, certainly. Lust, maybe. She wasn’t particularly well acquainted with the latter.

Getting into Gear!

Life’s been so busy since before the holidays and then I got the flu, so I’ve fallen behind on lots of things, but now I’m making great progress on my current book and am writing some short stories to publish soon!

For those waiting for it, I hope to have The Office Slave #4 out within a month or so! Sorry to have kept you all waiting for so long!

TheOfficeSlave_BoxSet_300

As soon as story #4 is out, I will release a new boxed set with story #3 (On Her Knees) and story #4 (don’t have a title yet).  In fact, here’s a sneak peak at the cover for that boxed set.

TheOfficeSlave3&4_600x900

I’ll have stories in 4 boxed sets over the next few months! Many of you may be interested in our Invitation to Eden boxed set coming out in February.  We’re waiting for the cover for that, but I’ll let you know when we get it!

The new Mastered 2 boxed set will be out in April and it’s already up for preorder.  The set will contain 10 brand new stories by some fabulous authors!  The cover is still being updated, since the author line-up has changed since we first had it made in the fall.  You can see the current list of authors included on the Amazon listing.

I’ll keep you posted as things become available, but if you want to hear about these as they release, you can sign up for my newsletter!

On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) – no longer censored by Amazon!

Hi.  Amazon has finally removed the Adult Flag from On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3)!  This is the new cover.  You might notice from my last post that there is more shading to cover her derriere!  Without that shading , it was a no go!

They brought her ultimate fantasy to life…
Now it gets real.

Her friend had arranged for her to live out her fantasy of being office slave to four hot hunky business partners, and at the end, their fifth partner had called to ask if she wanted to be dominated… for real. His deep, domineering voice had elicited the most compelling and intense dreams she’d ever known. Then when she gave up control to him, she was totally hooked.

Now she is exploring what it means to be in a Dominant/submissive relationship with a man who seems to gain more pleasure from watching her with other men rather than giving her what she really wants. Him.

Mr. Grant has never experienced a submissive as willing and desirable as Sylvia. Everything about her makes him want her, eroding the steadfast control he keeps over himself when mastering a woman.

No submissive has ever broken through his carefully erected barrier of indifference. Until now.

Can Sylvia break through his self-imposed walls to touch the man beneath?

On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) – CENSORED

OpalCarew_TheOfficeSlave3_BW.800     OpalCarew_TheOfficeSlave4-HR

As if the road hasn’t been rocky enough getting On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) out to my readers, now Amazon has slapped the dreaded Adult Tag on it.

This means that readers cannot find the story when they search for it, even if they put in the appropriate search criteria (for instance “Opal Carew On Her Knees”)!  Unless you either select “Books” or “Kindle Store” from the Department drop list (to the left of the search field), you will not find the book.  It will also be hidden from listings other books will enjoy, like the also bought lists at the bottom of similar books, etc.

It may not sound big, but sales have plummeted since it happened.  I’m working on getting Amazon to remove the adult tag, but they refused based on the cover.  Okay, so I’ve gone out and gotten a different cover for it (really, really fast–thank you so much to Kim Killion of Hot Damn Designs for helping me out).  I hope they’ll accept this one, but it all takes time to go through the process.  I loaded the cover up on Amazon on Saturday, but at the time I’m writing this post, it’s still not up, and I can’t request they remove the Adult Filter until the cover is up.

If you have any friends who can’t find it and want to buy it, please send them this link:

Thank you!

Did you buy On Her Knees (The Office Slave #3) and the file was empty?

So because of a glitch in the preorder process, Amazon sent out empty copies to everyone who preordered On Her Knees, or who bought it on the first day. I’m so sorry to anyone that happened to and have posted a note in the product description on Amazon telling everyone I will send a copy of the story to anyone this happened to. Please check there if this includes you! Needless to say, it’s been a hectic weekend!

New Release: Red Hot Fantasies boxed set (Volume 1)

New Release: Red Hot Fantasies boxed set (Volume 1)

I know, I just released Hot Ride yesterday, but I wanted to release this set a couple of weeks ago and was held up on the cover, so here it is!

The Red Hot Fantasies boxed sets consists of: The Male Stripper, The Stranger, and The Office Slave. All are available individually as well as in this set.

What if your deepest sexual fantasies could come true?

Bad boys, alpha males, and dominants… three red hot fantasies.

It all began with a bachelorette party. Three women, three red hot fantasies!

While Becca’s friends fantasize about multiple men and erotic situations, Becca longs for something more down to earth—a sizzling night with the male stripper she hired for her friend’s bachelorette party.

For Jan, the idea of sex with a stranger is her biggest turn-on. Not a one night stand, but someone who is totally anonymous.

Sylvia loves to read erotica, and after her latest read, she’s developed a sizzling fantasy about submitting to the sexual whims of four incredibly hot business partners.

Becca finds the perfect opportunity to make her fantasy come true when her sexy male stripper shows up at her door later that night—and with a hunky friend in tow. After having her fantasy come true, Becca decides to make her friends’ fantasies come true as well.
