Flashback Friday - Whirlpool

Today we are flashing back to Whirlpool, the second book in the Forces of Nature series.

 

Cover Image

 

Title: Whirlpool

Heroine: Chelsea – Merfolk female stuck in her hometown when her college plans fall through. Despite her attraction to the human Jamie, she is head-over-heels for fellow merfolk Braden, and determine to make him hers.

Hero: Braden – Local merfolk sheriff who lusts after Chelsea, but is convinced he can’t have her. Getting to share her with Jamie is the icing on the cake.

Jamie – Human archaeologist who knows nothing of the merfolk, but finds himself instantly attracted to Chelsea, AND the town sheriff.

Tidbit: Ahhh, so many cool memories about this story. The two that really come to mind are that I remember contacting a friend writer who’d written books with archaeology in them, to check some details. Turns out she’s not just a great writer, but the head of an actual archaeological department at a big university. Having someone THAT knowledgeable help me out was so fabulous.

And the other cool thing about Whirlpool was it was the first book I wrote with boy touching in it. Yes, this is a mmf story, which is simply what the characters and settings called for. I loved writing it, and I’m very glad that I got to introduce readers to my sexy sexy merfolk. ;)

 

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

Quote: "Jamie ignored everything else and simply felt—the caress of Chelsea’s fingers as she explored, the harsher touch of Braden's callused hand..."

The squealing post

No, there’s no actual noise coming to hit you. This is for all things that have happened over the past week while I’ve been holding the Fans and Favorites event.

First, I have to say THANK YOU!!! Holy Moly, the number of people who have purchased Wolf Tracks, and then written to tell me what they thought–I’m overwhelmed. It means so much to know that you are enjoying the Granite Lake series, and my writing. And yes, it definitely motivates me to write more!!

Wolf Tracks made it to the top of the MB&M list. It also hit a high of 82 in the Kindle books at Amazon. That’s the #82 book available in kindle, all genres, all lengths. All kinds of authors. That’s little ol’ TJ sitting between Ken Folette’s World without End, and Diane Galbaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber. (I just shivered…)

And when you split off to only the romance genre, TJ and Pam’s love story was ranked with books by people like Janet Evanowich, JR Ward and Gena Showalter. #8 at the best showing.

Kinda makes a girl’s week…

Then I got an email letting me know that three of my books made it to the finals in the EPIC book awards. :D The grin just got bigger. Being selected is a great honour for me as it’s a judged event from my writing peers.

Up for the honours are:

Turn It On- Erotic Contemporary
Wolf Games- Erotic Paranormal
Rocky Mountain Haven- Erotic Western

Ready for more?

And then Authors After Dark contacted me to let me know two of my books were also nominated in the Bookie Awards! These are voted on my bloggers and readers, completely blind nominations, so I’m very pleased. The voting for the actual winners starts sometime in November.

Snippet Saturday- In Betweens

If you’ve been following Snippet Saturday for a while, you know the themes are up for interpretation. Today’s theme? In Betweens.  BRAWHAHAHAHAH. **wipes tears** Okay, you’re going to get ALL kinds of snippets today.

I’ve decided to go with a smorgasbord today. Tidbits from some of my menages. If you’re interested in reading more, you can link through the titles to the blurb/excerpt pages.  Enjoy! (Oh, NSFW- adults only please)

Claiming Derryn

“It’s never happening again,” she swore, clutching her fingers at her sides to stop from reaching for him.

“Never is a long, long time.” Davis stepped forward and claimed her lips in a kiss that ignited her soul. He drew their bodies together, his spicy male scent enveloping her as his hardness took possession of her softness. He forced his tongue past her teeth, pressing rough and fast, twining with her, consuming her. He dragged his fingers through her hair and pinned her between him and Trev, two solid barriers of scorching heat. When he finally released her lips, Melina gasped for air, clutching his uniform for stability. It had always been like that with Davis, a no-holds-barred attack.

~~~

Tidal Wave:

Blessed warmth covered her from head to toe. Hard bodies surrounded her. The whisper of a touch feathered her nipples and Alexia hummed with delight. The hand that cupped her pussy from behind tightened slightly and one finger brushed her clit.

Alexia rolled a little farther onto her stomach to allow more room for his fingers to play, and the men cradling her on either side laughed.

“She’s insatiable,” Anthony said.

“You say that like it’s a bad thing. I don’t mind at all.” Joshua’s hand stroked harder, his thumb slipping into her sheath.

“Who’s insatiable? I’m just lying here, minding my own business. Oh yes, right there, Joshua.” She felt too good to even break into a blush, her head resting on Anthony’s bare chest while her other lover primed her body yet again.

The stroke of a hand down his back reminded him Braden was still with them, and yet…he couldn’t stop. All his focus was on Chelsea, on the pleasure he found in her, the pleasure he wanted to bring her.

“You should see what I see.” Braden’s deep voice rustled through the air. He touched them both, his hands skimming Jamie’s side. Hovering where Jamie cupped Chelsea’s breast. The contrast of their fair skin and Braden’s darker coloring—his rougher, beefier hands—showed clearly. “You two look like erotic Greek statues, porcelain fine and breathtakingly beautiful.”

Chelsea laughed softly as she snaked out an arm to catch Braden around the neck. “And you’re Poseidon, rising from the sea to love us both?”

“Hmm, it’s not difficult to love you, baby.” He kissed her, lowering himself to lie skin to skin against Jamie’s side. Jamie watched in fascination until Chelsea squirmed under him, pressing her breast up into his hand, and he shifted to be able to reach her easier. He nibbled and licked, listening to the soft noises of pleasure she made, hearing Braden’s whispered words of love.

And coming in November…Falling, Freestyle:

Damn. She shook her head and pushed through the cafeteria doors, clomping in her heavy boots toward their usual table. The swelling volume of voices drowned out her thoughts.

She should confess she’d heard their conversation, but what could she say without it being really awkward? In fact, doing anything about what she’d overheard seemed completely impossible.

If she knew which man she wanted to get involved with, it would be simpler. With her affections spread so evenly between them, that option was eliminated. In fact she couldn’t imagine being with one and not the other.

Being with both of them? Together. Oh Lord, yes. As if she hadn’t fantasized about that a million times as well.

Her face flushed hotter. The erotic books she’d read returned to her, and suddenly she wondered if she was brave enough to go through with the idea flashing through her brain. Their annual pre-Christmas ski trip away to another resort, just the three of them, was fast approaching. If she opened the door just a crack, what would they think of spending time getting to know her better—both of them?

Maybe if she introduced the concept of a ménage as a fantasy, asked them to help her out. She’d be able to see if there was a difference in the way her heart and body felt—see if she was more drawn to one than the other. In the meantime she’d be experiencing a dream come true.

If she could convince them to give it a try.

She stepped next to the table and they both turned their full attention her way. Darkness and light met her, in their eyes, their hair. Something inside her belly tingled with anticipation, and this time she let it build instead of beating it into submission.

Wanting them both wasn’t wrong, she was sure of it. Wanting them both, together…that seemed more risqué.

Lissa Matthews
Shelley Munro
Ashley Ladd
