Demons, Shapeshifters and a Little Alternative Universe #BDSM

Demons and shapeshifters in my Demons in Exile series will be partying it up on New Year’s Eve this week. These demons are unlike the average demon. Bad enough to be exiled from their home planet and now bad enough to possibly cause the destruction of another world—Earth. They're hot, sexy and insatiable.

Shapeshifters and mortals on Earth are seduced by their lustful ways. Their means of survival is by collecting the lifeforce energy of mortals through sex. And throughout the three-book series, they get in all kinds of trouble and develop love triangles out of this world--literally.

The presence of their alternative world is so close to Earth, it's disrupting Earth’s physical stability. One world will be destroyed if something isn’t done. Can the love between enemies, mortal and immortal, stop the destruction? 

How are the demons trained to collect this lifeforce energy? Their training is conducted by a Disciplinarian who uses a bit of SM (Sadomasochism) to educate the drone demons. Very hot and sexy to ‘watch’. They can participate in sex, cause their partner to achieve orgasm, but cannot indulge in that pleasure themselves. If they do, they’ll kill their quarry and lose all the energy they collected. Their world needs this energy to survive. 

What did the demons do that was so terrible that they were exiled from their home planet? That prequel story will be told in a future release: RISKY PLEASURES soon to be released at Ellora’s Cave. Release date: TBA.

Why are they partying? Besides New Year's Eve, Dante, the bad boy demon and favorite of this series, will see his book: DAMNED AND DEFIANT in print at Ellora’s Cave on 12/31/13.

Here's the series outline:

 Summer Sins
RISKY PLEASURES (coming soon to Ellora’s Cave) Blurb: Sakari’s desire burns deep for the hot and erotic moments Zorian provides in his private chambers. But to get him there alone, she must risk her immortal life and the wrath of the demoness. Sexual pleasures among demon drones are strictly forbidden, and she has defied the demoness by returning to Anartia without her offering. As a skilled Disciplinarian, Zorian will do whatever it takes to train her as a proper drone by testing her sexual limits before they can indulge their own wicked urges. Sakari’s darkest secret will be their greatest risk and test of their love.
DESERT OF THE DAMNEDBlurb: While working on an environmental project in the Arizona desert, research scientist Amy Weston finds herself caught in the war between two men. Dante Akanto lures her into the desert to explore the dark side of her passions, pleasuring her in erotic ways she never thought possible with his bizarre sex games. And park ranger Jake Montag has a compelling mysticism and powerful sensuality that's HOT and impossible to resist. But the two men, demon and shapeshifter, are engaged in a supernatural fight between worlds. Amy and her high level of life force energy is the key. Dante's world and his immortality depend on claiming her as his own. The choice Amy makes between the two men will affect both her world and her future. Reader Advisory: Contains scorching scenes of bondage. Publisher Note: This book is loosely based on a short story previously published elsewhere.
DAMNED AND DESIRED Blurb: 2011 EPIC Award Finalist. Stand-alone sequel to Desert of the Damned. She's a demon, he's a shapeshifting leopard. From their first meeting in the Arizona desert, passion ignites and trouble begins. As a demon, Sakari Lock must harvest lifeforce energy through sexual seductions to sustain her exiled world. But when Sakari meets Brad, she breaks the number one rule of Anartia--don't get personal with your quarry.Physician's assistant Brad Montag is drawn to Sakari's lustful advances with a blazing desire he can't explain, unaware of how dangerous she is. No matter how enticing, she's a complication he doesn't need until he can conquer his past and regain control of his shapeshifting abilities. Sex this wicked and good can only lead to disaster.When immortals from an alternate dimension try to free their exiled world, Brad is caught in the middle of a battle that could destroy not only him, but the land he loves.Reader Advisory: This book offers a bit of bondage for your BDSM pleasure, as well as secondary characters getting down with a little M/M/F fun of their own.
 Damned and Defiant
DAMNED AND DEFIANT Blurb: Though a stand-alone story, we suggest reading in sequence to fully enjoy. Mortal women surrender to Dante’s seductions. He is a Drone, an immortal who feeds off their lifeforce energy—the chi that keeps his kind alive. When his dimension is on the edge of destruction, Dante must seek the help of one special woman.Haley Moore is a Sha Warrior—a mortal with excess lifeforce. She’s always been drawn to Dante. When they meet again he thinks luck is on his side—his quota of chi energy would be obtained after one scorching scene with this mortal. The problem is that he is overwhelmingly attracted to her and once with this woman won’t be enough.
Haley tries to draw out the man buried deep within the demon. Their fierce, undeniable passion unravels his plans and threatens her life. But Dante is destined to leave Earth forever. He must choose whether to return to Prygos or give up his immortality and share his future with Haley.
PRINT book release for DAMNED AND DEFIANT on 12/31/13!!!
Excerpt: The skinwalker—part man, part coyote—shifted into his human form as he gazed upon the young woman, his quarry. She removed her clothes and dropped them onto the cool, desert sand. She gave him a lustful glance as if she was the one controlling the seduction. “Nice trick with the coyote. Are you a magician?” Her words were slurred. But the trance hadn’t taken hold.
“Something like that,” he answered. He felt a flush of heat on his face. How the hell was she still aware? Something wasn’t right. This Kithra was different than the others, and he wasn’t sure why. He slid his hands over her arms and sparks skidded across her skin.
“I love the desert at night,” she added as her eyelids flickered. The air around her body crackled with electricity, her short, blonde hair stood out from the static. Not his usual choice for Kithras. He preferred ones with long, dark hair like the Drones from Prygos. It had to be her level of energy that drew him to this one.
“Yes,” he murmured, then waved his hand over her face, deepening the trance with little effort. He extended a finger and ran it down the side of her cheek, her neck, between her small breasts and cut diagonally across her flat stomach to her narrow hips. When his finger skimmed close to her pubic area she shivered and moaned. She was a slight creature with an athletic build. He preferred his Kithra to have a few more curves but she would provide adequate chi for his needs. Pointing to the blanket, he smiled when she complied and stretched out on it, her arms and legs spread.
Dante Akanto gave her a knowing smile, stepped back and paced around the naked woman. He watched her hands slide over her breasts and rub her pussy. “Fuck me, Dante.” She writhed on the Navajo blanket, deep in the sexual trance, almost ready for the offering. A rush of hot, sexual sensations surged through him and his cock hardened. No! He had to fight his urges or he’d risk killing her during the collection.
Beside her, a campfire blazed, keeping away the night creatures of the Arizona desert. She moaned, teasing him with her sultry movements and her scent. The look she gave him made him ache with a desperate hunger. The woman’s sexual appetite could yank her out of the trance if he wasn’t careful. Dante swirled the energy field around her, easing her deeper into his spell. Her eyes glazed over.
Better. Finally, this Kithra was becoming receptive to his influences. Her energy level was high and hard to manage. Probably a Sha Warrior. Lucky for him to pick a mortal with so much lifeforce. He’d meet his quota after this collection. Moving over to his Harley, he removed the rest of his clothes, cowboy boots, leather pants and hung them over his bike.
Naked and fully aroused, he stood over her and stroked his cock. The woman was quite beautiful. Was she purposefully downplaying her appearance by wearing worn jeans and a baggy T-shirt? What struck Dante the most was her eyes. Large and golden brown, they shone with intelligence, but also appeared dark with despair. Like a polished jewel that had lost its sparkle. He sensed a toughness within her, a fear maybe, brought on by a life of tragedy or loss.
Don’t get personal with your quarry.
He’d seen her walking along the highway alone. Young, attractive, fearless and carrying a backpack. A traveler? Homeless? He didn’t know. She was the perfect Kithra or quarry. She accepted his offer for a ride, with a little telepathic influence on his part, and he’d driven her out into the desert. No one would see them here.
She’d laughed when he’d swung the bike off the road, heading into open desert. While he made a campfire, she’d taken his Navajo blanket from the saddlebag and spread it out by the fire. Now naked and in trance, he craved to take her as a mortal man would take a mortal woman, but he couldn’t. She didn’t need to be naked for the collection. And tonight it was making his task more difficult.
Dante had to make his quota of human lifeforce energy to the demoness of Anartia. The immortals needed his offering to maintain their world. If he failed, he’d be replaced—destroyed—by Gwyllain, or her consort Tarik, the rulers of Anartia.
The woman watched him with hunger and lust in her eyes. The need to climax was great. His cock ached. But he’d have to wait until the offering. Stay in control. The more he teased and prolonged her orgasm, the better the harvest of chi.

May 2014 be the best ever. Wishing you all good things for you in the new year. Thank you for your kind support and being a part of my writing dream.

Husband and Wife Balancing Love, Marriage, Whips, and Chains #BDSM #Erotica

My Story: My Wife Writes Erotica

This has been a busy month with interviews about writing, marriage, BDSM and erotica. I've had a number of interviews talking about how my husband and I balance my writing life, research and our marriage, especially with the material I write about: BDSM, ménage, swinging and more. We also published a couple articles this week about our experiences in Blast Magazine (see below).

This type of writing comes with a fair amount of research: reading non-fiction and fiction books about alternative lifestyles (You should see my book shelves. It might make a few people blush). I also search the Internet, talked to authors, people living a D/s relationship and have visited BDSM clubs for research. I've talked about this in detail in earlier blog posts:

In the News:

12.18.13 Two articles were published in this week. Blast magazine is an online Entertainment Magazine in Boston, reviewing video games, movies, music, TV and talking about Gen-Y issues and more.

In our articles we wrote a kind of He said, She said complimentary set of articles talking about how we balance love, marriage and my BDSM/erotica writing life. One story is in the men’s section of My Story and one in the women’s section.
The first one is titled: “My Wife Writes Erotica” 

The other one: “I’m a Loving Wife Who Writes Erotica” 

12.18.13 I was also interviewed by Florida Weekly Magazine. Talking about Naughty Christmas gift ideas. Check out the article here 

by Artis Henderson

In this article Ms. Henderson interviewed me about a few naughty gift ideas for Christmas. Similar to an earlier blog post I wrote, but with her fabulous twists and lovely writing talents.

Naughty Gift Ideas

Kink up your Kindle, Naughty up your NOOK. Kindles and NOOKs are the hottest Christmas gifts this year. They have big ones, small ones, paper white ones, ones for every need and preference. If you haven’t gotten one for yourself and every family member, get busy. Then start downloading all those hot sexy books to warm you up while you’re drinking that spiked egg nog or grog and sitting in front of a fire.

If you’re really in a rush and don’t think if you shop online you’ll receive your items in time, then search for stores in your area. Use Key Words: Lingerie, Adult Sex Toys, Adult Novelty Store, BDSM shops, etc.

Some other naughty gifts ideas:
-BDSM equipment for roleplaying. Nylon Velcro straps, fur-lined cufflinks, blindfold, collar, nipple clamps, flogger, Nylon rope.

I'm thrilled to have author Adele Downs as a guest today to celebrate the release of her HOT new book from Entangled Publishing SANTA TO THE RESCUE. No better way to warm you up around the holidays than a fireman. Jamey Tucker, the hero in this book was so kind to answer a few questions
Enjoy!! And enjoy the book. I'm a huge fan of Adele! I'm sure you'll be too when you check out her books.
Check out the GIVEAWAY Adele is having at her website. Details at the end of the blog post!!!

Q. Jamey Tucker, hero of SANTA TO THE RESCUE by Adele Downs, what makes you so special?

     A. Thanks for hosting me on your blog and calling me special! I’m just a rookie firefighter with the Appleton Fire Station in Pennsylvania apple orchard country, standing by to protect the safety of the families in our community. If that makes me special, I’m happy to be of service.

Q. Do you have special skills or abilities?

     A. I guess growing up in a household filled with sisters made me see how important it is for a man to keep his word. When someone disappointed one of my sisters, or they faced a setback, I learned to stay cool instead of busting a few heads. Staying calm under pressure became an asset to my job. That life skill helped me in my personal relationships and my role as a first responder. Having sisters taught me to be a better man.

Q. Tell us about your most current adventure.

     A. The crew at Appleton Fire Station likes nothing better than to break rookie… uh, let’s just say they like to challenge the new guy. How they test me and decide whether or not I’ll make the grade at Appleton Fire Station is at the center of SANTA TO THE RESCUE.

Q. Tell us a little bit about your author. Where can we find more of her works? And if you could offer your author advice, what would it be?

    A. Adele says SANTA TO THE RESCUE is appropriate for readers from Young Adult to the Senior Center and she hopes will become a reader holiday favorite. Her next story, KISSING HER COWBOY, will release January 10, 2014.

Q. Tell us a little about your job.

    A. Being a firefighter is the greatest job in the world. I moved from my family home in Indiana and relocate to Pennsylvania to join the Appleton team. They’re a great group, even if they do like to push us new guys around. I’m from solid Midwestern stock, so I can take it. I know how to push back. (laughs)

Q. Is expressing love difficult for you? Why?

    A. Once I met Heather Longhurst, I had to hold back my feelings so I didn’t scare her off. I like to think I’ve been raised with good sense where women are concerned. My parents and grandparents proved that true love isn’t a myth. I believe in lasting love, and don’t care if that sounds corny. Truth is truth.

Q. What’s your favorite thing to do?

     A. Aw, come on. I’m a guy. I like sports and I love my girlfriend.

Q. Are there any last words you’d like to share?

     A. Remember this important fire safety rule—find two ways out.

        And, of course, I want to tell you about how I met pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst in our story SANTA TO THE RESCUE and how…Well, you’ll have to read the story to find out. At only .99 per copy, I hope you’ll buy extras to send to your friends and family as Christmas gifts or in place of a holiday card. Amazon has a gift buy button ready for that purpose. Easy! After you buy and read the book, I also hope you’ll do me the honor of posting a review.

   GIVEAWAY!!! One more thing—author Adele Downs is giving away firefighter Christmas ornaments throughout her blog tour. To enter, answer the following question: What’s your favorite Christmas song, and why? You must tell us why in order to qualify for the prize. Winners will be announced every Saturday through mid-December on Adele’s blog at

A sweet firefighter contemporary romance novella
New Release! From Entangled Publishing


Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows three things in life to be true: An honorable man doesn't go back on his word, never hurts a woman, and lasting love isn't a myth. But with his recent move to a new job at the Appleton Fire station, the long hours don't offer hope of finding the love he’s looking for.
When Jamey meets beautiful pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing Santa Baby in a supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can't keep. Heather has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter engine-uity and Heather's favorite song to prove he's got Christmas spirit she can believe in all year.

Feeling Like the 5th Wheel in a Menage?

Does the third person ever feel like the fifth wheel in a ménage à trois encounter? I suppose it’s possible depending on the dynamics and relationships between those in the group.

Besides BDSM, I also enjoy writing ménage and multiple sex encounters, including encounters with otherworldly creatures like dragons. I’m working on a Christmas themed ménage right now for a special call out from my publisher. I like writing the edgy alternative sex scenes. It makes for interesting and intense conflicts and emotions between the characters. It can also be a challenge to write especially when it comes to stage directions, making sure all the positions are physically possible in this dimension. I must visualize the scene step by step or I can turn my characters into contortionists.

As for the emotional connections between the characters, that’s where the fun really lies. Usually, I write MFM, that’s two men and one woman where the men don’t have sex. But when two guys are involved in a ménage, come on, private parts might get touched. If they have a problem with another guy touching their junk, they shouldn't be engaged with a ménage in the first place.

But sometimes when two lovers bring in a third party, that third person could feel a little like a fifth wheel or cause some tension in the threesome. (SECRET SOIREE)
MMF scenes (DAMNED AND DESIRED) are very hot too. 

Sometimes one guy is more interested in the woman than the other. One may even be falling in love, while the other is in the ménage for the thrill of sex only (SPRING BREAK). All can work in erotic romance and true life if partners are open and adventurous.

Do you have any favorite ménage couplings? MMF, MFM, MFF, all male or all female????

There’s still time to sign up for my SUMMER SINS contest until December 14th.
