Six Sentence Sunday 11-25-12

Once month since THUNDER, my sexy paranormal 1Night Stand story was released by Decadent Publishing.

So here are six:

Veronica’s soft, smooth lips parted beneath his, and he deepened the kiss like a man crazed and possessed. He’d imagined being with this woman, a distant dream secretly nurtured in the most hidden part of him. The fantasy paled beside the reality of having her in his arms, lodged against his body like seams on a baseball. He dipped his tongue into the velvet recesses of her mouth, withdrew, delved inside again to play with hers.

She clutched him to her, and they both gasped with the stunning impact of the kiss.

1Night Stands, By Jones!

Happy Black Friday, everyone! And welcome to my stop on the Decadent Publishing Authors Black Friday Blog Hop!

DP Black Friday Blog Hop

Help me find new characters and I'll send a random commenter something tasty!

But first here the clues, along with the hot skinny on those sexy Jones brothers and their babes:

Campbell, the hero of LIGHTNING, is a first-class, award-winning architect, who's acquired supernatural staying power and some other interesting paranormal skills, after his prom date, Lily Night, landed him in a coma during a night of steamy, unbridled passion.

Campbell's teamed up with his brother, the hunky Sean Jones, the hero of THUNDER, a much sought-after contractor to the stars, and the pair have created a hot ticket real estate development company called By Jones. Also part of By Jones: two mysterious characters known as Silent Partner and Developer Girl. And Sean runs a few smokin' crews of muscular construction guys.

Lily, the love of Campbell's life, is a succubus, with two off-the-wall succubi sisters, Dagney and Zena, who stand at different points on the demonic table. While Lily is close to "zero" as demons go, Zena is off the freakin' paranormal promiscuity charts.

Sean's squeeze, Veronica Hardwicke, is a witch. She may have some witchy cronies. She has a will o'the wisp friend named Genevieve.

So who else, from the cast above, would you like to see have a 1Night Stand? And why?

Let me know and I'll send a random commenter some cool THUNDER and LIGHTNING swag and a $5 gift card from Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks!

Six Sentence Sunday 11-18-12

This Sunday's six are from a WIP I'm playing around with, tentatively titled FROST.  Hoping it'll turn into my third 1Night Stand story for Decadent Publishing, following LIGHTNING and THUNDER. Stay tuned.

A gust swirled the tails of Raines' paint-spattered linen shirt, the sleeves rolled up to reveal his biceps, as if it were the dog days of August, not the chill gloom of February.
“You must come in, sir--the wind’s kicking up and you haven’t eaten in two days.”
Raines tossed his brush, the bristles slathered with Mars Black, onto the palette in irritation with himself and his absent muse.
The unfinished landscape was all that stood between the ravening beast pacing with increasing agitation inside him and the rest of the world.  Hot with fever, his rising temperature bursting through the fuckin' stratosphere--and his muse had deserted him.
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.

Kiss a veteran today.

Another six from THUNDER, a sexy, paranormal 1Night Stand story available now from Decadent Publishing.

She caught a whiff of fresh lime soap and licked the edge of his jaw, tearing a groan from him. He squeezed her tighter, the hard thrust of his erection insistent against the seam of her shorts.

"What’s going on here, Sean?"

"Looks like we’re each getting to act on our secret fantasy."

"I’m your secret fantasy?"

"Fuck, yeah."

Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop

What do I love about the fall?

You mean aside from the tang in the air, the crisp snap of Cortlandt, Rome and Macintosh apples, the cozy nights?

Oh, honey, that's simple. It gives me the perfect excuse to indulge in one of my favorites: Howdy, Pilgrim Cornbread Puddin', an easy-peasy, but delish recipe!


1 can creamed corn
1 can kernel corn
1 c. sour cream (8 oz.)
3 beaten eggs
1 stick butter (or margarine)
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease oven-proof casserole dish. Supposed to be 1-1/2 qts, but the one I used in the picure abve is 2 qts and it's okay.

You can simply smoosh everything together in a mixing bowl, pour into the oven-proof dish and bake.

If you're more finicky, you can do it this way:

Pour butter and corn into mixing bowl (or the casserole you'll bake it in; it doesn't really matter, unless neatness counts!)

Blend in sour cream.

In separate bowl, beat eggs and stir into corn mixture. Add muffin mix and mix.

Bake 1 hour (or less) at 350.°

Don't burn it. Keep checking. It's better moist and creamy inside, golden brown, with slight crust on top. It's done when the center is firm and a knife or toothpick comes out more or less clean.

What else do I love about autumn? I love how spooky and shadowy everything turns when darkness descends and those sexy mystical currents swirl through the air. As they do in Sleepy Hollow, the setting for THUNDER and LIGHTNING, my two new hot 1Night Stand paranormals from Decadent Publishing, and SLEEPY HOLLOW DREAMS, my erotic paranormal from The Wild Rose Press.
Here's the blurb from THUNDER:
Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who's been renovating her mansion for months?
Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it's Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons.
Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?

Here's the blurb from LIGHTNING:

In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.
Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.
Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?

Six Sentence Sunday 11-4-12

Going X-rated today... Had to put up the "adults" warning for the 1st time in the history of this blog... So here are this week's six.

Sean's fantasy. From THUNDER:

Then there was the stunning multi-million dollar bonus Veronica Hardwicke had promised once she was satisfied. If he ever managed to satisfy her.

That last thought caused him to veer off course into erotic territory, conjuring raw, carnal images of the various ways he might satisfy her. His cock grew harder than the creamy coral marble he’d imported from China for her master bath. He pictured her in that bath, streams of water sluicing over her slick breasts from the pulsing jets set into the walls. Stepping into the shower behind her, he’d soap her belly, moving closer to plaster his chest to her back, his erect cock riding the crack of her ass, caging her arms on the tile above her head with one hand, the fingers of his other hand reaching around and slipping inside her to tease her wet core, massaging moan after moan from her….
