I Love Lucy and Her Latest Steamy Romance!

Hello friends and Happy Almost Memorial Day! I know I’ve been extra quiet lately but that’s because my muse became very ambitious a few months ago and I’ve got no less than four books I’m working on to get to you! So while I’m holed up in the writing cave playing slave to my muse, I’m very happy to bring you the newest release by my good teasing friend, the awesome Lucy Felthouse. With the long holiday weekend upon us, here’s a little something to heat up the first official weekend of summer…

nativetongueOut Now – Native Tongue – M/M Erotic Romance by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #erotica #romance #military #interracial


They may be back on British soil, but the battle isn’t over.

When Captain Hugh Wilkes fell for his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, he always knew things would never be easy. After months of complete secrecy, their return to England should have spelt an end to the sneaking around and the insane risks. But it seems there are many obstacles for them to overcome before they can truly be happy together. Can they get past those obstacles, or is this one battle too many for their fledgling relationship?

Author’s note: Although this story does work as a standalone tale, it’s recommended that you read the first instalment of the characters’ journey first—Desert Heat, which is available from all good retailers.

Going Hero Deep with Loni Lynne!

I crush hard on romance novel heroes and I know you do too. Which is why I’m inviting special guest authors and their heroes to select and answer two questions for us. The questions come from a list I designed to dip into what really lies underneath all that strapping, heroic yumminess. Today’s guest author is a dear friend of mine and fellow Waterworld Mermaid sister, Miss Loni Lynne! One thing I love about doing these hero interviews is the vast difference in the guys. You’ll see what I mean as you read on. Please give a warm welcome to Loni and her immortal, brooding hero, Mike. I wonder what Mike is willing to share…

silhouette couple together on motorcycle her lean backLoni Lynne: Folks, my hero, Mike Linder is a bit of a recluse. An immortal, having been turned during a bloody battle in Vietnam. He has a lot of angst and horrors deep inside that are darker than the immortality he now lives with.

But I have managed to coerce him from his dark, hidden sanctuary…briefly.

Aww, Mike, hugs from all of us reading, and thank you, xoxoxo.

Loni Lynne: Mike, I know you don’t really want to be here so I’ll be gentle. What is your favorite song and why?

Mike Linder: (scoffing, slouches in metal folding chair, arms folded) Really? What kind of lame ass question is that? This isn’t the Dating Game, Loni.

Loni Lynne: (Rolling her eyes) Just answer the question.

Mike Linder: Fine. Favorite song? Mornin’ by Al Jarraeu Continue reading

It’s the last day of September, friends, and to close out the month I’ve brought a fabulous lady and author for a visit, Lucy Felthouse!

I’ve loved all the little snippets and now it’s finally here in full! Please welcome Lucy and her newest release, Timeless Desire…

timelessdesireOut Now – Timeless Desire by Lucy Felthouse @cw1985 #erotica #romance #paranormal #ghost


Emily arrives at Westbury Hall with a job to do. She’s to clean and conserve all of the books in their impressive library, preserving them for future generations. Not long into her stay at the house, she bumps into the night guard, George. She’d expected an old, balding guy with a comb over, so the hunky chap she actually meets is a very pleasant surprise. The introductions complete, George leaves Emily in peace to get on with her job. But when a falling photograph sets off a chain reaction of ghostly events, Emily and George are thrown together in order to find out who—or what—is causing them. Their investigation uncovers a tragic past, a lost love, and a stunning secret.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a revised and extended of a previously published title, Love Through Time.

Mid Week Tease! Cravings… #MWTease

Welcome Back to Mid Week Tease!



 HELLO! Thank you so much for stopping by my place today. It feels so great to be back in the tease after missing the last couple weeks. I’ve landed in San Diego and once I get used to the time change, I won’t be so tardy with my post! Thank you also to the lovely and sexy Sandra Bunino for hosting us each week. Way back in June (wink), I left off with Stefan and Dani in the truck stop bathroom. They haven’t managed to get out of there yet but I think you’ll be okay with that once you see what’s coming in the next couple weeks of teases. Hope you enjoy this unedited bit from Stefan’s story, Wicked Flower, which has a tentative release time of August.


“Here … for you.”


“You still in there?” he asked as he tapped his knuckles gently against the metal door. But he knew she was because the kaleidoscope of colors on her snakeskin clogs stood out. “It’s me.” He nearly spit out his name but held back. When a woman didn’t ask for it, they almost always had their reasons. He didn’t blame the ones not caring who he was, only wanting sex, because sometimes that’s all he wanted too.

The door made a metallic sounding groan as she opened it and let him back in.

“Here,” he said. “For you.”

Stefan started to hand her the package of grape licorice but when her face lit up, he pulled it back. Curious that such a simple thing pleased her so much, he didn’t mean to tease her, but couldn’t help it. Until she frowned.

He wouldn’t be mean for long but he craved her strange reactions to him. Stefan bit a corner of the plastic wrapping off and pulled out one piece. Would she tell him to grow up or insist she didn’t like being teased? The sweet, distinct smell overpowered their small space. He held the purple candy stick out to her and rather than furthering the play by taking his offering into her mouth, she tugged it from him with her fingers and then fed it to herself. Which, fuck, was even hotter. He just smiled, hiding the heat exploding under his skin.

“Listen, you’re not just beautiful,” he told her as she chewed and then took another piece when he held out the package. “And this ex of yours might be good, but…” She wouldn’t be pleased if Stefan insulted this guy, no matter that her heart was broken. He could sense that much. “He’s obviously not too bright. You’re fucking sexy as hell, and yeah it’s an old cliché, but any guy would be lucky to have you.” He pinned her with a stare and waited to see how she’d take that last bit. Damn, he must really want in her pants because even Stefan knew he was laying it on thick. She took out another piece of licorice but to his surprise, she offered it to him instead of eating it herself. The smell was way too sweet—not his particular liking—so he smiled, showed her the gum he was chewing between his teeth and offered the licorice back to her. Now if she’d have offered to let him eat it from her mouth, he’d have downed the whole package, no matter how nasty the sweet grape would have made his cinnamon gum.

That’s my tease for this week! See you next week for more.

Now off you go for some tantalizing snippets by some outstanding authors!
