Book Hooks – An incubus in love

d17de-logobookhooks

Renee Maxwell lands her dream job as assistant to archaeologist Damon Cubins in wondrous Turkey. However, she starts seeing strange things after finding a unique crystal. For one, hot Damon now looks like the sexy demi-god and underwear model of her dreams. Her feminist ideals are challenged with each bit of banter and seductive look he gives her, but she’s not falling for his charm.

Time is of the essence for incubus, Damon Cubins, who must find a one-of-a-kind crystal or turn into a full-fledged demon. He has neither the time nor desire for love, but his new assistant tests his resolve. When he discovers she’s got the crystal he needs to save himself, he must make a decision to either romance it from her or walk away. But can he?

Excerpt:

She huffed and snatched up her towel. Thankfully, it reached just below her butt, leaving her long legs exposed for his admiration.

Then she batted her eyelashes at him. “I would never give you the satisfaction.”

“Of which?” He beamed. “Drowning or bathing?”

“Both.” She inserted the corner of towel between her breasts, locking the rest of it around her, and then grabbed her canteen. “Uh, thank you for saving me.” She shivered, and he doubted it was merely from the dunk in the water. “Please don’t tell the others; it’s embarrassing.”

After his nod, she breathed out a sigh. She looked as if she anticipated that he would haul her back into the water for a lesson.

Her movements reminded him of abused animals. He speculated most people, who couldn’t swim but grew up around water, would try to learn unless they experienced drowning or trauma in the past. Could that have happened to her? There was more to this situation than her usual stubbornness. Vulnerability even.

As she leaned over to finish filling her canteen, her ample bosom peeked out. His lust twisted at the thought of the sounds she would make when he kissed her nipples until they pebbled.

Suddenly, she jerked up, spilling some of the water. “Did you get a good enough view?”

He opened his mouth, but no words came out. Without waiting for his reply, she stormed away. Damon flopped backward, letting his body float. His mind drifted to images of making love to Renee in the river. After he helped her over her phobia, somehow. Hmm, he could kiss her down there while she treaded water.

Nah, she’d never go for it. This is a business trip. No time for sleeping with the staff, no matter how sexy they are when arguing with him.

My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop #MSS179

my-sexy-saturday-header-5

Welcome to the 179th week of My Sexy Saturday.

This week’s theme: Sexy and Strong

Readers, please visit us at our new Author Central where we’ll be sharing even more from our authors besides Saturday’s snippets. We’d love to have each and every one of you there as we’re starting new things this month with fun and prizes along the way.

ClaimedHere’s my excerpt from Claimed – Book 1 a paranormal romance

     She refused to allow him to witness her terror. She could do this. When she took his outstretched hand, desire coursed through her and nearly buckled her legs. Was this her illness? Or had the fever returned? A peace filled her in his presence, and she wasn’t
scared when he tugged her hand.
Glittering water caressed her thighs, then reached her stomach as they waded. When a wave hit her chest, she took her gaze off Damon, realizing how far out she’d come. How had he gotten her to take his hand and block her panic? No one had ever succeeded at getting her into water over her knees without her clawing, kicking, and screaming. Yet when she looked at him, calm drifted into her. What possessed her to trust him and wade out this far? She had to leave. Had to get back to shore.
“Careful.” Concern filled his eyes. “Are you okay?”
“I’m fine.” The sudden thought of Damon nearly kissing her made her anger flare and her words come out sharper than she intended. He wasn’t someone to lose herself with. If he discovered her fear of water, would he tease her about it? Tell everyone?
“The rocks can be slippery here. Let me help you.” He grasped her elbow.
“I’m okay.” She pulled away, but the stone was slick beneath her feet. God, why had she come out this far? Terror clawed at her throat. Her legs shook as her breathing raced.         Water splashed up against a boulder to her left, bringing back the image of her dad’s face and the way his dead eyes stared into hers. On a ride through the rapids, she’d been thrown off. Her father leapt into the churning water after her and helped her scramble
onto a rock. The next time she gazed at her dad, he lay in his casket.
Rather than let Damon discover her phobia, she plunged ahead and tripped on a mass of rocks hidden below the surface. She yelped before water crashed over her head and she sunk to the bottom of the river.

Blood Diamonds by Kryssie Fortune

Welcome Kryssie Fortune,

Blood Diamonds

Even the name makes you shudder. I’d never heard of them until the Leonardo DiCaprio film hit the big screen.

Blooddiamondposter

The best diamonds should sparkle like clear, cut glass, right? The other colors, the pinks and yellows aren’t as valuable. But what about red diamonds? A true red diamond is the most valuable of all. The Moussaieff Red, discovered in 1990 even gets a mention in my latest book – Dominated by the Dragon.

There’s another sort of Blood Diamond though, one with a darker history. These are mined in war zones, usually by slave labor. They change hands on the black market, the proceeds going to finance wars or help keep the wrong people in power. People die to mine them, then more people die from the proceeds of the sale.

No wonder, they’re called Blood Diamonds.

There’s a red diamond prominently displayed on the cover of Dominated by the Dragon. The heroine, Hope, is heiress to a billionaire diamond dealer. She’s sassy, sharp, and deep in the brown stuff when she’s captured by a coven of witches turned slavers. Normally she’s a take-charge kind of girl, but this time she needs a hero.

Step forward, Flynn Hemsworth.

He’s a former super soldier turned mercenary on the run from the military. Thanks to their sick experiments, there’s a dragon demon bonded into his soul. Once he’s rescued Hope, she teaches him about diamonds. In return, he teaches her about submission, spanking, and pleasure mingled with pain.

Blurb

A former super soldier turned dragon demon must choose between his soul mate and saving the world from a nuclear winter.
The British army’s nuclear testing bonded a dragon into Flynn Hemsworth’s soul. Military scientists vivisected and tortured him until he escaped two years later. Although he’s never aged, he’s been alone and on the run for almost six decades. When he prevents a naked woman from being the prize lot in a coven’s slave auction, he realizes she has an unexplored submissive streak.

Hope Mathews—a sassy blonde with killer keyboard skills—is a strong independent woman. When Flynn prevents her being sold to a demon, she discovers she enjoys spankings and light bondage.
Together Hope and Flynn must shut down a coven of black magicians, rescue kidnapped demons, and stop a black ops nuclear missile hitting the UK. Even if they manage all that, Hope’s the granddaughter of a billionaire while Flynn’s still on the run from the military who want to dissect him again. Can they find common ground and build a life together?

Reader Advisory: Contains explicit language, a virginal heroine who discovers she enjoys spanking and bondage. Add in some serious dragon demon loving, light the blue touch paper, stand back, and watch the sparks fly.
PUBLISHER NOTE: Paranormal BDSM Romance – 63,094 words. BDSM, Exhibitionism, Orgies, and Spanking.

 

Our Sexy Vacation ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #Saturday7 #MSS137

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

My sexist vacation, so far, was when my husband and I won tickets to Hawaii. One day though, I’d like to travel further like my character Renee to Turkey and see the ancient ruins.

If you desire a letter of recommendation to host your own expedition, Renee, you’ll get off your ass and be ready to leave for the hot air balloon ride.”
She glared. If she’d been a gorgon, he’d be stone.
“If I do this,” her amber eyes glinted in the sunlight, “you will not only give me an honest recommendation, but Cynthia’s personal number so I may call her myself. Then Travis takes me into town as soon as he arrives.”
“Done.” He grinned. “Now clean up before I add more than a balloon ride to my side of the costs.”Image result for hot air balloons over cappadocia
An hour later, the balloons arrived. Carla and Renee were in one, the other members of his team divided among the other three. He guessed it wasn’t Renee’s choice for him to ride with them, but too bad. The other baskets were full.
“Ready sir?” the balloon operator asked.
Damon hopped over the rim. “Let’s go.”
The hiss of the gas made the basket lurch as the operator flipped on the burner. Renee’s stance softened as the ground drifted away. Carla grasped the side of the basket and began to talk nonstop to the operator.
“Have you ever been on a balloon ride before?” Damon asked Renee.
“No.”
They pulled away from camp, the tops of the trees drifting away below them.
“Then I guess it’s good I ordered the ceremonial champagne.” When she arched an eyebrow, he held his hands. “It’s tradition; first balloon ride calls for a glass of champagne. Not my rules, right operator?”
“Yes, sir.”
“You probably paid him to say that.”
“No, he’s telling the truth.” Carla came up beside her. “I’ve flown once with my cousin.”
“How much did you have to pay Carla?” Renee asked.
Damon laughed as he dug through the picnic basket and drew out the plastic champagne glasses. “We’ll wait until we are over the fairy chimneys then we’ll have our toast.”
If they rode in balloon alone, he might have been too tempted to kiss her. That kind of thinking was dangerous.
