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 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!)

Stepbrother, Mine by Opal Carew

(https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/182362-stepbrother-mine)

How far will she go to get the life she’s always wanted? Dana’s always had a clear vision of how her life would go and how she’d get there, but when her father dies during her final year of college, her whole world threatens to topple down. In desperate need of money, she takes a drastic step. She decides to auction off her virginity.

Mason is used to getting what he wants. The head of his own corporate empire, he has wealth, means, and no shortage of beautiful women ready to fulfill his every need. But despite having it all, Mason is bored. Until he comes face-to-face with a woman from his past. Unable to let Dana slip away again, Mason bids on the one thing he’s always wanted, even if it is completely forbidden. He’s fantasied about having her to himself for years, touching her smooth skin, tasting her sweet lips, but Dana is off-limits, or is she? What started out as a way for each of them to get what they’ve always wanted is about to turn into so much more….

Please let your friends know! 🙂

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.)

The Office Slave conclusion – Release day!

Great news! The exciting conclusion of The Office Slave series is out now! It’s available today as part of the final boxed set containing two stories. 🙂

TheOfficeSlave_BoxSet_7_300

Will his need to be in control destroy his only chance at happiness?

Mr. Grant’s need to control everything in his life–including his women and his emotions–has cost him the one thing he truly desires. Sylvia. He wants her–no, he needs her–back in his life. To dominate her… and to care for her. But can he push himself to his emotional limits and do what it takes to win her back?

“No panties, Sylvia. You are a dirty girl.”

She flattened one hand on his chest. “I’m a very dirty, naughty girl. You need to punish me.”

Those last words came out a little needier than she’d intended.

“You still want me to master you?”

She bit her lip, hesitating, then finally nodded.

He sighed, his gaze shifting back to her. “Well, you found the perfect way to convince me. Turn around.”

Since there are 7 stories in the series, I’ve thrown in a bonus story called The Captive. It’s a brand new story and, if you’ve been following The Office Slave series, then I thought you’d enjoy seeing more of the sexy Mr. King. 🙂

Office_7&Bonus_Cover5x8.png

Note: This is also available in print (as a single book with two stories).

The individual stories will be released over the next two weeks. Buying the box set is the best deal, though, since it’s the same price as buying either of the stories individually! 🙂

Master, Mr. King. Sylvia will do anything to please him as he dominates her with a strong hand—commanding her, disciplining her, even sharing her with his business partners—just like Mr. Grant did.

But she knows in her heart, she will never stop loving Mr. Grant.

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 5: Resistor by Madelynne Ellis

mastered2 quote card madelynneEllisWhat’s more irresistible than a hot, tattooed alpha rock star? One playing hard to get! Rocker, Spook, is about to take a sinful turn in Madelynne Ellis’ Mastered 2 story, “Resistor”!

Sex is the last thing on Spook’s mind, or he wishes it was. “Resistor” by @MadelynneEllis, part of #Mastered2! http://amzn.to/1EyxSHj #BDSM

Rhythm guitarist, Spook Mortensen doesn’t want a second chance with sound engineer, Allegra Hutton– not over a table, in a limo or in bed.

Spook Mortensen has one rule when it comes to relationships: just say no. He has his reasons. Good reasons. His policy of total abstinence has kept him out of trouble for years. Sex ought to be the last thing on his mind, but whenever go-getting sound engineer Allegra Hutton shows up, she doesn’t just hijack his libido, she downright screws with it. The only way to deal with her is to tie her up.

Alle realizes she’s upsetting Spook’s rhythm, but she’s under no illusion that he’s the right top to warm her bottom.

“Let’s go into the party suite.”

It was only a few short steps across the hall. Spook tried the door handle, then ushered her inside. The huge room was all decked out for when the auditorium emptied. Tables and chairs set out around the edges, canapés on the bar, and row upon row of filled crystal glasses waiting to be served.

Spook grabbed a glass off the nearest tray and downed it in one long gulp before reaching for another.

“In need of Dutch courage?” she asked.

“Guess so.” Second drained, he went for a third. “Course it’d help if it was something stronger than pissing sherry.” He slammed the glass back down against the tablecloth, then looked a little sheepish, possibly over how much force he’d used, though equally it could have been over his treatment of her. Perhaps indicative of its quality, the glass remained intact.

“OK!” He paused to drag both hands through the front of his hair, which left the blond strands sticking up. “Yeah. I’m sorry, I —”

“I’ve driven you to drink,” she remarked, casting a glance at the row of empties.

“Demented,” he corrected her. “You’ve driven me demented, as if the band didn’t do that already.”

“Pretty impressive of me, given we haven’t spoken for months.”

He took a deep breath and sighed, but faced her straight on. “I thought about you. A lot.

Maybe too much. Definitely too much.”

“Nice things?” she asked. Yes, she was fishing for compliments, but hey, five minutes ago she didn’t think they’d ever be having this conversation.

“Depends on your definition of nice.”

“Naughty,” she replied. “As in things that turned you on, and maybe got you sweating a little, and hard.” She flicked her gaze down to his loins and back.

Spook gave a groan. “I’d be lying if I said otherwise.”

“So, why didn’t you call?”

His hand shot out to seize another drink. Alle curled her fingers around his outstretched arm, making him pause. Slowly, he released the stem of the glass and steadied his gaze upon her face again. “Because this can’t be.”

“Why not? Is there someone else?”

“No — hell, no!” His brow furrowed. “There’s nobody.”

“Then you’re making no sense. What’s wrong with us enjoying some adult fun?” She sought his hand to link their fingers together.

Spook’s frown only deepened at the sight of their palms pressed together so tightly, but, she noticed, he didn’t pull away. “Alle, I can’t be who you want me to be.”

The ludicrousness of the remark surprised a smile out of her. “You are who I want you to be.”

“No.” He freed his fingers from her grip and used them to cover her mouth. ‘I’m not. I know you think you’ve found the person who’ll give you what you’re craving, but I’m not that man. I can’t… I’m sorry.’

‘Did I imagine you tanning my arse?’

‘No.’

‘Am I supposed to believe you’re not interested in doing it again?’

‘Of course not.

“Then what? Why? If you want it and I want it… Spook, we want the same thing, don’t we?

Why are you so dead against exploring that?”

He clammed up, lips pursed, deep, ocean-blue eyes downcast as he turned his hand to cup her cheek and chase a tear of frustration that tracked down her face.

“It was good between us, Spook.”

“Yes, it was. Better than good.”

She blinked, trying to clear her eyes, and not crumple into a blubbering heap. She was stronger than that. She didn’t cry, not with four brothers who’d mocked her mercilessly for it.

Tears had never got her what she wanted, quite the opposite. At home, her tears were what had marked her as a girl and had stopped her from getting her the same deal as the rest of her siblings. She couldn’t wipe the salt tracks from her skin though, without knocking Spook’s hand out of the way, and no matter what, she wouldn’t break that contact.

“I’m not worth crying over.”

“I’m not crying.”

He caught another tear on his fingertips and brought it to the tip of his tongue. Mesmerized, she watched him taste it, and felt her panties get wet. Sweet mercy! She could see him doing that after he’d pushed her to the limits of her endurance and she was just a breath away from numbness, sunk deep into a sort of sub-space of stretched nerves, surrender, and bliss. Her gasp left her lips gently parted and the remainder of her breath caught in the top of her lungs.

Spook’s gaze fixed upon her breasts, then lifted slowly back to her mouth.

She was going to kiss him.

She didn’t care if he pushed her away.

She was going to kiss him.

Kiss him now.
