Tyler & Marco(Lust at First Sight 2) Release and Excerpt


Tyler & Marco(Lust at First Sight 2) came out this past week from Evernight Publishing. So far sales look to be going well which is always great for an author since it makes it worthwhile to continue on with a series. Each installment is standalone and follows the initial meeting between two men who are instantly attracted to each other and what follows afterwards. 

Below is the blurb and the story excerpt. If you choose to give it a try, I hope you enjoy it.

Blurb: 

Lust at First Sight, 2

First time meetings can lead to many things, but when you meet the one guy you're automatically attracted to—the chemistry sizzles. Strangers or not, it doesn't matter. It's lust at first sight and anything's game...

Shy and socially awkward Tyler has been watching the construction site across from his house secretly lusting for the hot guys that work there, but when he finally comes face to face with the hot and sexy Italian, Marco, it's lust at first sight! Marco is everything Tyler has ever dreamed of in a man, and his complete opposite in every way possible.

Marco's life is all about hard work. From the moment he left home just after high school, he'd forged his own way in the world without ever knowing real love. But when he meets the cute guy who lives across the street from his work, he instantly feels something sizzling between them. But Marco isn't out and not sure if he's ready to tell the world he's gay, or even his own family.

Both guys yearn for something more in life and after a couple rounds of hot sex, and another chance meeting, they come to see that possibly there is something more between them than just lust.

Excerpt: 

Tyler entered Marco’s apartment after he unlocked the door and stepped aside. He was wowed by what he saw next. The apartment was actually a loft style studio. The open space set out before him gave him a sense of freedom. “This is gorgeous,” he commented, looking around. The stark brick walls, along with modern furnishings, were refreshing and crisp. “Who did the decorating?” Tyler couldn’t resist asking.

Marco shrugged. “I did. I picked out things that I liked, and it all kind of went together quite easily.”

Tyler was thoroughly impressed. There was more to Marco than he’d initially thought. “I’m impressed.”

“If this impresses you, then wait until I show you my bed,” Marco mused. He waggled his brows, and a small half grin that was incredibly sexy crossed his lips. Tyler thought back to their kiss. He wanted that again … now.

****

Tyler was one of few guys that had gotten inside Marco’s apartment. Between his lack of experience dating or anything otherwise, he didn’t have many guests enter his domain. He led Tyler to the kitchen area where he retrieved two beers from the fridge. “It’s the best I can do,” he said, handing the frosted bottle to his guest. “I’m not much for wine or anything else.”

“Beer’s fine.” Tyler untwisted the cap. Their eyes met, and Marco felt relaxed in his new friend’s presence. He hoped that Tyler felt the same. He watched as Tyler took a sip of beer before he started to advance upon him. He placed his own unopened bottle back on the counter top first. They found their way to Marco’s bed across the room, and together they toppled back on the firm yet slightly soft mattress. “You’re so sexy,” Tyler said. Their eyes locked as Marco brought his hand to his soon to be lover’s cheek.

“Sexy? I won’t complain getting a compliment like that from a cutie like you.” Marco leaned his head down a little until his lips connected with Tyler’s. The chemistry between them felt sensational as did their tongues merging together in a heated passion that Marco hadn’t experienced before.

He pressed his body into Tyler. He wanted so much more. His fingers found their way down to the hem of Tyler’s shirt, and slowly he pulled up on it. “This needs to go,” he murmured against Tyler’s lips. “I want to see you,” he paused. “All of you.”

****

Marco’s words titillated Tyler.

From the first moment he’d spotted this man working on the construction site, Tyler had wanted him. But guys like Marco rarely ever went for guys like him, right? If this was a dream, he sure as hell didn’t want to wake up anytime soon since they were eagerly getting to what would be the good parts. With Marco’s strong hands practically tearing off his clothes, he felt like he was about to burst from pure lust at any second. But what he really wanted was to see this hot specimen of man naked.

Marco at some point managed to get his own shirt off, and Tyler was left nearly breathless. This man was completely and utterly perfect. Tyler ran his hands up and down Marco’s chest feeling the ripple of muscle underneath his fingers. The air around them had become thick and heady. And when Marco moved lower and then lower again, Tyler nearly gasped when he felt Marco gripping his hard cock, jacking it slowly and seductively. “Get out of those jeans,” Marco demanded, helping Tyler pull them down with his free hand. “The undies are cute, but they gotta go, too. I want nothing between my mouth and your cock.”

Note:

Tyler & Marco is available directly from the publisher, Amazon Kindle, All Romance, Barnes and Noble, Bookstrand, and other fine online retailers of e books.

Coming Soon: A Collection of my Short Stories



I'm determined to make 2014 more productive than 2013. My first release of the year will be a collection of my short stories previously published individually through Iron Rose Press. Also, there will be a couple of new works added. Look for a giveaway on Goodreads once it's in print. I'm also working on a couple of other projects which I hope to submit out to publishers within two months. Oh.. And isn't that guy on the cover simply darling? I think so :)

This and That

Another year has passed by pretty darned quickly, and soon the holiday season will be here. I don't make resolutions for the coming year, but I have started my Christmas shopping.

I'm not one to do things last minute. And I have to admit that I do most of my shopping online. The selection is better than most stores around here, and the prices are often a heck of a lot cheaper. The hubs and I don't spend a lot on each other so that also makes things easier.

Once again this year I plan on giving a little extra to our local food-bank. It's a charity that I faithfully support since I've known people personally who have had to use it. It's my wish this upcoming season that more people do a little good in this world. Remember a little can go a long way even if you think what you can do is minuscule.

On the writing front it's been slow-going. I'm working on some non-romance. It isn't m/m either or remotely erotic. We shall see how that turns out, but the fact is that I have not been writing much period. The day job has been all consuming, and since it is the money maker at this time, I have to dedicate most of my time to it.

I hope all is good and well with everyone.

A Freebie!


I uploaded a story today to Smashwords. It was originally included in a now out of print antho that I was involved in. It's short, but free! Check out the blurb below. 

 Blurb: Spring is in the air and it's Easter weekend. Fox is on the hunt for something new and exciting, and finds it in the form of a sexy young twink named Trick. 

There's much more to Trick than his out-there attitude and unique style. Fox quickly finds that out during one night of hot, passionate sex. 

And what about those undies? Are they for freaking real?

Author Spotlight: Kelsey Blue



Time to time I feature a fellow author on this blog to help promote their work. This time I've chose to highlight a good online friend of mine and fellow Siren author, Kelsey Blue. She's had a new release recently, and I hope you give her a try. Her books are well written and did I mention the hot men?






Buy


Blurb: 
[Ménage and More: Erotic Interracial Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, shape-shifters, sex toys, HFN]

Kendra Winters is a journalist who’s come across the story of a lifetime. A pack of shape-shifters is living in her city, hidden from the public eye through stealth and subterfuge. If she can expose them when all others have failed, she’ll go down in history and maybe finally get her editor off her back. At least, that’s the plan... 

Will Castle and Brad Cook can’t believe their luck when Kendra walks up to them in a bar. Not only is she smart, witty, and beautiful, but she’s interested in both of them. They hold a secret, though. They’re both shape-shifters, able to take on the forms of wolves at will, and they belong to a pack that are willing to do anything to keep their secret hidden. 

Will the boys be able to show her the error of her ways, or will Kendra forsake love for the headline of a lifetime?

Excerpt:

Kendra sipped at her drink as she watched the two men cross the road from her seat in the diner. She had originally been irritated to have arrived just as their meeting was ending, but it looked like the night wouldn’t be a total disaster after all. If she was lucky, maybe she could get close to the tall one with the cute smile and ply him with a drink or two. First things first, though…

She turned back to the counter and caught the eye of the waitress. “Excuse me, miss?”

The woman, whose nametag identified her as Trish, smiled. “Can I get you something?”

“I was wondering if you knew the men who just left. It’s just that I’m sure I’ve met the tall one somewhere before, but I can’t remember his name.”

The woman folded her arms. “Cut the crap, honey.”

Kendra felt her stomach flip. “Pardon me?”

Trish grinned. “I saw the little smile between you. You want to get in his pants.”

Blood rushed to her cheeks, and Kendra was thankful it wasn’t noticeable. “Oh. Yeah.” She feigned a sheepish grin. “He’s cute, right?”

“Definitely. The other guy, too.” Trish screwed up her brow. “Uh, tall one’s called Will, and the other guy’s…Nah, can’t remember. I know the huge guy they were with is called Raul. My boss has called him over before when someone needs ejecting from the premises.” She smiled. “Don’t let that put you off, though. They’re all always friendly. I don’t know what they talk about, but I guess it’s like a fitness group or something, since they’re all so buff.”

Kendra smiled and thanked the woman for the information, then left the diner and jogged across the road to join the queue outside the bar. As she waited to get in, she ran through a few ideas for meeting the two men. That was the plan, anyway. Her brain had a different idea, though, and inserted the two men into the ménage fantasies she’d had earlier that night. Suddenly she was very glad the night was cool. Otherwise she’d be sweating.

The line eventually shuffled forward and she was let inside the club. It was one she hadn’t been in before, but it didn’t take long to orient herself and head to the bar. There were no free seats, and no shifters, either. She turned to face the dance floor and tried to find the two men. After a few moments she caught sight of the shorter of the two men heading toward a booth near the rear of the building. Gotcha.

It took a few minutes to get the attention of the bartender, but once she had a drink in hand, she made her way across the room and walked straight up to the booth that the two men occupied. They both looked up as she smiled.

“Mind if I join you?”

The taller man, Will, moved up to let her sit. “Please. You were in the diner.”

“Methinks you followed us,” the shorter man said, though he was smiling. “I like that.”

She shrugged. “Life’s too short for coyness. You’re both cute and at the very least I’ll get a drink and some good company.”

Will laughed. “I’m always up for good company. I’m Will, and this is Brad.”

“Nice to meet you both.” She sipped her wine. “You from around here?”

“For a few years, now. We’re originally from out west.”

“Oh? Are you related?”


“Nah,” Brad said. “Just very good friends. We do everything together.”

She raised an eyebrow. “Everything?”

Brad only smiled, but his eyes said more. Her previously quashed mental images returned and this time she let them stay. She’d only come in the hopes of some information for her article, but if she could get something more fun out of the night, all the better.

“So, what do you two do for fun?”

The closest of friends for many years, Craig and Jack are ecstatic that they’ve finally found a woman who’s willing to be with both of them. But they’re also worried. While she was accepting of their odd relationship, how will she react when she finds out that the two men are powerful supernatural beings, able to take on the forms of animals at will?

Will the lust triangle survive the incredible revelation, or will it all come crashing down around them? Either way, Michelle is in for a hell of a ride.

Recent Fantastic Reads

I've been reading a ton of books lately, so I decided once again to share my favs with anyone who is interested. My reading tastes vary quite a bit as you can see.


Blurb: My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to the rules passed down from my father. But now a haunted police detective has entered my world and everything is changing, including the rules that have always kept me safe. 

It started with the discovery of a young woman's brutalized body in an old Charleston graveyard I've been hired to restore. The clues to the killer--and to his other victims--lie in the headstone symbolism that only I can interpret. Devlin needs my help, but his ghosts shadow his every move, feeding off his warmth, sustaining their presence with his energy. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the symbols lead me closer to the killer and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next. 

Verdict: What an awesome read! This book totally engrossed me. It's the first in a series and as you can read from the blurb it's pretty unique and dark. 


Blurb: Grace Livingston Hill weaves an enchanting love triangle and introduces one of her most delightful characters in part one of the Miranda trilogy. Two sisters are as different as night and day--and inexplicably linked by the man they both desire. Kate Schuyler lives only for what pleases her in the moment, while Marcia Schuyler sacrifices her youth to marry her older sister's jilted fiance. Can Marcia endure living in borrowed clothes and a borrowed home with a borrowed husband? Is there hope to win her husband's love when Kate returns, spinning a web of deceit?

Verdict: This was a great romance in the purest sense of the word. It isn't hot or steamy, but the love is genuine between the hero and heroine. It's funny to think of this one as an historical since it was written about a 100 years ago as a contemporary for the time. If you're looking for an wholesome read with some pretty interesting characters and angst, try this one!


Blurb: A Fresh Start

Lily Farnsworth can thank a mysterious benefactor for the chance to open her own flower shop in Bygones, Kansas. But Tate Bronson is the biggest challenge the relocated Boston attorney has ever faced. Forget about tossing out the welcome mat—the handsome widowed rancher seems determined to keep Lily at arm's length. As everyone buzzes over the identity of the anonymous donor, Lily's doing her part to revitalize the struggling town. With the help of Tate's little girl-turned-matchmaker, can she create a garden of community and love deep in the heart of Kansas…and one special man?

Verdict: I like reading Harlquin's line of Christian romances. It's isn't really because of the religious element in them, but I find them easy reads that focus on the romance between the characters more so than anything else.

This book was a nice, easy read. Tate was a wonderful man, and I can see why Lily fell for him so easily. The blurb pretty much tells the jest of the story. This is also a series. I can't wait to read the next book. If small town romances are your thing, try this sweet read.


Blurb: A family struggles to survive bereavement, bombing and bitter rivalry... Patsy Rushton's brother Barney doesn't know the meaning of hard work, so when their father tragically dies, Patsy has no choice but to save the family's business. Meanwhile, Barney has got his girlfriend pregnant and, feeling trapped, he abandons her and leaves Merseyside altogether. But trouble follows Barney wherever he goes and when he learns of his sister's growing success, he can't help feeling resentful. Why is their mother, Beatrice, so quick to forgive him? Surely, she can't be blind to his faults? As Patsy is to discover, there's something else about Barney that is frightening her mother so much she has never dared to speak of it before.

Verdict: Anne Baker is one of my favorite authors. I adore her books and I don't think she's written a bad one. Love is Blind is a sweeping family saga set during the World War II. I got really enveloped in this story. Nancy was such a strong woman. If you're looking for an enticing read set during an interesting time, this book is the perfect read.
