Synopsis-Dreams and Nightmares

Dreams and nightmares are like twilight; that misty place between fantasy and reality. When your mind takes you on an adventure you didn’t sign up for and you become someone or something else, it can be delectable, terrifying, or both. Dreaming of that sexy bad boy who seems out of reach? Be careful what you wish for, sometimes dreams really do come true. If you have the time, we have the past life to seduce you. Whether your fantasy is a lustful mermaid, an irresistible incubus, a vampiric predator, or an insatiable ghost hold on tight. You are on the most erotic ride of your life. When your desires blend so thoroughly with the truth that you don’t know the difference, that’s when romance is but a dream.

Blurb for reVerie:

At least once a week I would have a recurring dream of something I didn’t understand, nor remembered ever happening. A house I desperately wanted to see, but never could and then there was him. He was the man of my dreams, my reverie, and my worst nightmare… reVerie

Excerpt:

My head tilted fractionally, for I wanted more, but refused to look away from his calming stare. He held me to him with his eyes. They were dark in color, yet shown brightly in the dim, bluish light surrounding us.
Confirmation. That’s what his gaze held. I showed him everything I ever felt for him, and he confirmed that I wasn’t alone in my emotions.
He was my everything, though I knew only moments ago I couldn’t even remember his name. It felt as if years had gone by since we last met, and yet it had only been one week. I had missed him so much I ached.
Andre’s blazing touch continued down my arm, easing some of the tightness in my chest, and I decided to focus on the moment, with him, and worry about the future later.
Slowly, he tugged my arm off his back. Goose bumps rose over my fair skin, and I shivered, wanting to rush him, but also longing for the night to last forever.
When his fingers finally met my wrist, he grasped my hand, bringing it to his lips for a supple kiss on my palm before rubbing his nose lightly across my inner wrist. His eyes were asking permission, and my heart skipped a beat with anticipation.
“Yes,” I whispered.
His eyes never strayed from mine as his tongue slid across my pulse, causing my stomach to clench just before he pierced the vein with his sharp teeth. *

Paige’s Promos ~ Pen Name K~ Book of Fantasies Trilogy

Hello everyone! I’ve got Pen Name K on the blog today. Check out the new releases…Links at the end.
BookofFantasiestimelinefacebook2

1) Tell us about yourself.
I hate talking about myself, but here it goes. I have been married for 20 years to the love of my life who still passionately kisses me – even after all these years – and didn’t mind when I told him that I wanted “foreplay” written into our vows. I have three beautiful angelic children (mostly evil 😉 who have blessed us and completed our family. They are my life! I believe in good manners and paying my many blessings forward. I’m a Law of Attraction nut, so I’m overly thankful and try to avoid negative people or circumstances like the plague! Most things are never black and white with me. I’m nonjudgmental and REFUSE to talk about politics or religion! I believe all happy people are beautiful.

2) When did you start writing?
I started writing 20 years ago, but have just published my first books this year.

3) What genres do you write? Like to read?
Currently I am writing in the Romance-Erotica genre AND the Children’s genre. Yep – you read that correctly. 😉 I love to read any genre or book that can make my imagination run wild! If I start to read a book and can’t visualize the story, then I move on to another one. Whether it’s a romance-erotica, children’s, YA or a full on historical non-fiction book, I have to be able to visualize the words.

4) What is the best compliment you’ve received about your writing? Worst?
The best compliment that I have received about my writing as a whole, is recently a high school friend of mine that has been an English College Professor for years told me, “You’ve done what I still haven’t and I’m an English Professor! You have inspired me to think more serious about writing. Thanks for doing this, in many respects, you are helping me.” My goal in life is to inspire others – so by his words telling me that I inspired him, made me cry happy tears.
What was the worst criticism that I received about my writing directly? Well, when I was writing my first book WHITE, I was writing a story from a male’s perspective and had a male proofread it. He came back with, “This story doesn’t do anything for me.” Although my heart sank a little, I knew that I missed my mark. He explained why, so I immediately rewrote that story with success! Lol. FYI: Men like it dirty!

5) What have you chosen to share with us today?
Today I want to share with you the information for my Book of Fantasies Trilogy. Three novels in 3 months have created a lot of sleepless nights! Whew! The first two books WHITE and RED are currently out and BLACK will be released on May 28th!

This provocative collection of erotic short stories is an invitation to entertain forbidden desires that lie right around the corner. Each book contains 36 sensual tales that lure you into a world of steamy encounters and expose you to wantonness that will leave you aching for more.

The first two books are published and are available in paperback at Amazon and in eBook formats on Kindle, Barnes and Noble NOOK, Apple iBooks, Smashwords and Kobo. You can read chapter excerpts on Facebook or on my Blog. (all links at the bottom)

6) Favorite authors? Inspirations?
I’m not ducking this question when I write: I read every genre, so there are too many to list. It wouldn’t be fair to list a few when they all deserve equal credit.

7) Where do your ideas come from?
I get my ideas from everywhere. People I’ve seen, movies I’ve watched, books I’ve read or my imagination because I haven’t seen, watched or read about it yet.

8) Advice for your readers/aspiring writers?
My advice for readers, aspiring writers or anyone out there that has a dream is DON’T GIVE UP! You’re never too old or too busy to make your dreams come true! If you doubt your writing abilities, but know you have a great storyline or idea, I’m here to tell you to WRITE that story or idea down and let a professional touch it up for you! There is a reason copywriters, editors and line editors have jobs. To everyone out there, I firmly believe and want to tell you that you are NOT limited by your 8-5 job, your age, your family status or your genre. I have a high powered career in finance, 3 busy wonderful children; I’m on several boards and committees and always find the time to utilize my creative outlet – for me that’s writing – it keeps me sane. Most people know about my new Book of Fantasies Trilogy (romance-erotica), but I’m here to tell you that I also have published FIVE children’s books in a series of 12 and I am just has happy about the smiles those books create as much as the body twitches and muscle clenches that my other books generate! NEVER GIVE UP!
Quick Release:

9) Vanilla or chocolate? Swirl
10) Favorite meal? None – or dictated by my mood.
11) Favorite color? RED for the Psychology/Psychoanalysist people out there, but actually it’s Kelly Green. 😉
12) Favorite non-writing activity to do? I’m on the United States All American Lady’s Sub Gauge Team – so shooting sporting clays. (Boom! Shocker!)
13) Boots, sandals, shoes or bare foot? All the above! My feet NEVER have fat days!
14) Snow or sun? Both
15) Anything else you want to say? Just thank you, thank you, thank you! For having me on here today. And remember: Follow your dreams – they do come true!

Author Bio:
Author profile picI reside in Eastern Tennessee. I’m a lover of coffee, Victoria’s Secret, and all things erotic. Two of my favorite past-times are storytelling and reading. I love seeing the emotion on someone’s face when I take them on a journey into my imagination with my words.

I dabble in poetry, and I’m a William Shakespeare fan. My favorite genres to read and write are erotica and horror, but horror gets the prize as my first love. It isn’t unusual for me to combine the sexy with the macabre.

When writing erotica, my favorite characters to construct are dominant males. In horror, I love the evil guys. They are so interesting and complex; they stand the test of time. A good example is Norman Bates. Even fifty years later, that character still inspires.

Hmm…can you imagine crossing Norman Bates with Christian Grey?

I can.

REVIEW ~ Sealed in Blood by Jenna Fox 4.0 out of 5.0

BOOK:  Sealed in Blood

AUTHOR: Jenna Fox

RATING: 4.00 out of 5.00

Review:

The book starts off shrouded in mystery. Mystery as to why doesn’t Hunt fit in, who is he? So I was grateful for his internal thoughts.

Her back story was more built up and you instantly loved Charisma…I mean with a name like that, it is sort of hard not to. And her relationship with her friend was endearing. There was great character development and her metaphor placement was perfect, but this is more a personal note, since I’ve known the author since the beginning of her writing and I can tell you she has blossomed quite a lot.

There is a Hitchcock-esq part to it that made me grin because it is pure Jenna. I loved that you had no idea where those damn birds came from.

At the end I was left with: How did I not see that? Wha-what? (And in a good way people) You got me Jenna. 🙂

I have to say, great book, wish there was more…isn’t that really the best compliment?

Paige’s Promos– Loving Therèsa

Sale alert!!!

20140506-093231.jpg

Foxx is a player, on and off the field, until he met Therèse. Therèse is an intensely passionate English woman, who refuses to follow convention and choose instead to select her man from the natives of the French Caribbean island of Martinique, Foxx LaCasse. Soon after meeting Foxx, she begins receiving threatening notes, asking her to stay away from him. Scared out of her wit, she flees back to England, without giving Foxx any explanation. Now two years later, she is back on the island, trying to pick up from where they’d left off, but Foxx was having none of it. He had one goal in mind; to have his way with her, and discard her, as she did him two years ago. But when he finally reunites with his beautiful, passionate, elusive target, he finds himself offering his protection and his heart.

Filled with Ju Ephraime’s trademark sensuality, characters you love to hate and men you wish to love, Loving Therèse will have you enthralled with its unexpected plots and refreshing style, as these two destined lovers, recaptured and embraced their love.

REVIEW ~ A Hunters Passion by Gwen Knight 4.75 out of 5.0

BOOK:  A Hunters Passion

AUTHOR: Gwen Knight

RATING: 4.75 out of 5.0

Review:

This paranormal romantic read receives a 4.75 out of 5.0 from me. Ryker and Jenna have some unresolved tension and added to it is their worlds are divided. His family on one side and she, even unbeknownst to her (at first) on the other—with Ryker stuck in the middle.

The sex scenes were slow, sexy and hot—burning white hot. I only wish there was a little more action.

It is a fantastically well crafted read, which is not heavy on the paranormal, more so on the story and romance side. I read it in one sitting, well that’s because I am a crazy-fast reader. But it is definitely a swift ride into the Hunter and darkling world.

Grab yourself a copy!
