Today is the day! NAILED is out now!

Warning: this is another hot one! 😉

Nailed_300

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.

Nail Polish Galore!!

This book is near and dear to my heart because I am a nail polish fanatic and River, the heroine in the book, is starting up her own indie nail polish company! I’m very excited about the fact that Literary Lacquers has brought to life the actual set of polishes that River creates for her first collection!!!

The nail polish collection is available now. 😀

There are three base colours:

Arousal
Orgasm
Afterglow

and two topcoats:

Passion
Love

The topcoats can go over the other colours (together or separately) because, of course, passion and love always enhance the sexual experience! 🙂

The one other nail polish mentioned in the book, called Tia Wanna, that River wanted to make for her friend Tia, is also included in the collection. 🙂

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…

Before she could protest, his lips captured hers. Her body failed her, refusing to pull away when she ordered it to. Then she melted into the kiss. Breathing in his musky aftershave. Luxuriating in the strength of his arms as they slid around her.
The ache became unbearable. A yearning so intense it terrified her.
Then he released her. His knowing eyes searched hers . . . and he smiled.
He reached into his pocket and pulled out a business card and pressed it into her hand.
“Call me if you change your mind.”
“I won’t.” She tossed the card on the table.
The confidence shining in his eyes didn’t waver.

***

“If you don’t agree to it, you won’t even have a company.”
His words hit home. Hard. He was right. Looking for a new job would take all her time and energy, and leave her stressed. She wouldn’t have the emotional resources left to work on building her business, let alone money for the physical resources.
She sighed.
She wasn’t willing to give up her dream.
Could she really marry this totally sexy, gorgeous guy who was, great in bed . . . who had broken her heart?
She stuck out her hand. “Okay. It’s a deal.”

Getting Nailed has never been more fun!!!

Hi! Many of you may know that I am a nail polish fanatic. I love nail polish because of the delightful colours, textures, finishes, et cetera, that I can appreciate at all times. My desk is by a big window looking out into the backyard and I love the sparkle of the sun on my nails while I type. (Okay, I write ALL THE TIME, so I have no time for hobbies! Lol!) Anyway, it’s also a fun way to bring out my creativity in a visual way.

The reason I’m telling you this is because… BIG NEWS… I was able to convince my editor at St. Martin’s Press that I should write a book where the heroine is starting her own  indie nail polish company! Of course, in addition to fun stuff about nail polish, there’s intrigue, domination, a sexy man from her past, more domination, and a reluctant marriage of convenience!

As part of the writing and the promoting, I am hoping to connect with nail polish bloggers and vloggers to talk about the book and…

I’m so excited about this

Literary Lacquers is going to produce the nail polish collection from the book!  Squeee!!!! I’m absolutely thrilled!

The book and the polish collection will be released on August 23rd and I can hardly wait!!!

MASTERED BY MY GUARDIAN – new release!

Mastered by my Guardian by Opal Carew

Today is release day for MASTERED BY MY GUARDIAN! I’m so excited for people to get their hands on this!
~~~~~
Enjoy this hot new BDSM story in the MASTERED BY series from New York Times Bestselling Author Opal Carew.
 
Chelsea spent the past ten years rebelling against Zane’s control. When their parents died, he became her guardian, controlling her trust fund and the company they shared. But hating the control he exerted on her did nothing to stop her from wanting him.
 
When she refuses to obey his summons for a weekend meeting, he cuts off her money, leaving her in a strange city with no way to pay her hotel bill. Forced to accept his help and join him at his country house, she soon discovers his intention is not strictly business. When she experiences his potent masculine domination she finds the reality of being with Zane far exceeds her fantasies… leaving her wanting more.
 
But can she surrender to this forbidden love and be mastered by her guardian?
 
 
I’ll post the other links as they become available!
Also, watch for excerpts and teasers! 🙂

Mastered 2 Box Set Author Spotlight Series, Day 4: Luscious, by T.J. Michaels

Mastered2 Quote Card TJMichaelsHappy Friday Readers! I hope the Mastered 2 box set has kept you bound & pleased throughout the week, and that you’re eager to try out some new tricks this weekend! 😛 Today we’ll be looking at T.J. Michael’s delicious new story, Luscious!

 Come and Visit the Twilight Teahouse in @tj_michaels’ “Luscious”, part of the new#Mastered2 #BDSM box set! http://amzn.to/1EyxSHj #99Cents

 MacKenzie Ivers is a strong personality who submits to one man — her husband, Landon.

 After ten years of marriage, a nasty divorce, followed by a sweet reconciliation, Mac wants nothing more than for her husband to stop punishing himself for his part in the former “crazy”. It’s going to require some conniving and some rope…miles and miles of rope. Luckily, Twilight Teahouse has everything she needs to get this particular rigger back in the saddle.

 The all-new Mastered 2 Box Set is available now for the special price of $0.99!

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.”

 

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!

I am continuing to try and get the word out on this story again.  🙂

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!

Anyone buying the story now won’t have that problem!
