Caveman Friday- Christian Boeving

As you know, Romantion 2012 was just two weeks ago. I don't think I've ever had so much fun in so little time in my life. One of the big draws and definitely one of the best parts of the conference were the Cavemen. Picture those lovely men you see on Ellora's Cave covers. In the flesh... all that hard, muscular flesh. There you go, now you've got the picture.


Danica Avet was a smart woman and hooked them all into interviewing on her blog. Yes, I'm jealous too! LOL But, she's sharing them with all of us. Today's interviewee is Christian Boeving!

 Yummy, right?

Teaser from the interview:

Q) What was I like in high school?

I was literally that quintessential skinny kid who got beaten up daily
for his $1.25 in lunch money. Being the nerd of the school AND being the focus of the school bully for years doesn't exactly win you
friends OR girlfriends. At fifteen years old, I'd finally had enough...so I ran away and never went back. From five years old and until the day I left, I'd lived in Poplar Bluff, Missouri and I found
myself that junior year of highschool in Fairfax, Virginia. It was then that my life took a drastic departure from what I'd been used to. Never really ever having new kids move into that tiny town I lived in, I'd never witnessed what I now know to be the strange Universal law that the "new kid" in school is automatically thrust into the school limelite, thus being thrust into "popularity" actually by default. Ultimately it becomes your choice to either find a way to remain popular or digress back to the shadows and the Land of Misfit Toys.  I had never felt anything like "popularity" before...I liked it....and I still do.



If you want to read the full interview or ask Christian some questions click HERE to go to Danica's blog. He'll be stopping in throughout the day to answer your questions and bask in your adoration!

Friday we'll be pimping the adorable and sexy Justin Whitfield!

Is My Muse a Man?!

I've been thinking about the writing process a lot lately. I've spent some time chatting with other authors and now know that the idea of a muse is pretty normal. I joke, openly when no where near a psych ward, that my characters talk to me. I know that sounds crazy, but in all honesty I'm driven as much by the characters as I am by the need to finish a book. The true driver in the madness known as writing for me is my muse. The book I work on, the way each chapter plays out... all of it is dependent on my muse and 'her' attitude for the day.

This got me thinking. I've always figured my muse was one of my female characters. I've mumbled on many occassion about how fickle and bitchy she could be. But, what if my muse is actually a man. That would explain so much. When was the last time you've spoken to a man at length about anything and had him actually listen? How about getting a man to do what you want in a timely manor without writing out a detailed list? Or, when was the last time your ideas or thoughts were taken into account for a project if a man was in charge? Lastly, when was the last time you could get a man out of his seat when he really wanted to nap or watch a game?

All of these attributes, the stubbornness, lack of communication at times, loss of information in translation, never asking for plot directions... all of them describe my muse perfectly. Now I understand why 'she' has been such a pain to work with... 'she's' a HE.

So, going forward I'm feeding my muse beer and football before I write. I'm going to sit back and let him take the stories where he wants and just clean up the mess after he's had his fun. I'm hoping this revelation helps kick him in the ass enough to finish a book or two soon.

What do you think?

Sensual Saturday- Another Taste of Destiny- 2

Another Taste of Destiny- an EC for Men novella


Purchase on Ellora's Cave or Amazon

Blurb:
Joe’s marriage is on the rocks. His wife has even seen a lawyer. So it’s the worst possible time for a brassy hooker to walk into his life and send him reeling with lust. After a quick-and-dirty encounter in a men’s bathroom, Joe is hard pressed to think about anything but her. Destiny. His Destiny.

He has to see her again…and again. Will Destiny be the final nail in his marriage’s coffin? Or might giving in to his darkest, most depraved desires be the only way to save it?

Snippet:
 Tonight she was dressed in a brilliant-blue lace bra that was completely visible through a sheer black shirt. The top three buttons were undone, allowing the bra to shine in all its iridescent glory. She had on a black skin-tight skirt that barely covered the apex of her thighs. Her heels were the same color as her bra and made him want to groan. He had a quick flash of her wrapping those long legs around his back, heels digging into the muscles of his ass as he pounded into her.

He sat, riveted by her walk. She moved like a runway model or a predator, strolling toward him with purpose and control. His palms started to sweat as she neared the table. Was he really going to go through with this? The money sitting in his pocket gave him his answer, a resounding “yes”.

“Hey, hon. Didn’t think I’d see you again. You waitin’ for your wife again?” She leaned toward him when she reached the table and dropped her voice. “Or did you come to see me again?”

The view of her tits from his seat was mesmerizing. They threatened to spill from the blue cups with each breath she took. He hoped with each inhale that one would fall out of its little nest, giving him the glimpse he so wanted. He had dreamed of her all week, but it was her nipples that had so fascinated him. The dark-pink he had caught a peek of last time had tantalized him, taunted his imagination. Tonight he wanted to see them in their full glory, puckered and aroused.

He looked up into those captivating eyes. “I came to see you.”

“Well. Ain’t that interesting. We moving to the bathrooms again or you have something more in mind?” She raised an eyebrow in question. She smoothed a hand over his shoulder and down his back. The other was drawing tight circles in the water ring left from his drink on the table.

He cleared his throat. It was now or never. “I have money for more. Where do you usually go?”

Alpha in Hiding- review

Check out the great review over at Romancing the Book for Alpha in Hiding...


It’s tough being the Alpha’s daughter. Emily Prescott spends half her life helping to manage the pack’s business and the other half putting horny he-wolves in their place. When her father sends her on a mission to bring a weak wolf into his shifter side, it seems like just another pain in her ass-until her bitch perks up and takes notice.
Seth has spent years fighting to keep his wolf at bay, but something about Emily brings out the animal in him. Wild sex with Emily turns into an uncontrollable urge to mate her and make her his. But Emily needs a strong mate-someone who can dominate and defend her. If weak, geeky Seth wants to woo her, he has some changing to do.

Review: If you love a great alpha male shapeshifter then Alpha in Hiding is just what you’ve been wanting to read.
Emily is a very strong woman and can control males just by her voice.  She just wants her friends to stop fighting off every male that she comes into contact with.  Seth wants to ignore the beast that is inside him. He just wants a normal life. He looks like a nerd and lives in a really messy house. He just goes by every day until he can no longer ignore the shift.
I was really surprised when I started reading Alpha in Hiding. I never thought I would see a shapeshifter who really had no abilities to do what usually comes as second nature to them. It was a new experience. You have a normal every day male who wears glasses and is a little geeky. When you find out why he doesn’t like his beast you start understanding.
The author came up with a great plot that is very real and I could see happening. The sexual tension between Seth and Emily is just too much to ignore and when Seth lets his beast out and starts changing it happens faster than Emily thought it would.  Even after I finished the book I am still thinking about it. That’s just the kind of book it is. I can’t believe that the story is over and I want more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a true alpha male and boy is he. Sometimes what you see isn’t really what is there.

Author Interview- Erin Simone


Welcome Erin Simone back to my blog for her newest book release. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and check out the snippet. 




Tell us about your latest book. 
My new book Forbidden Realm was just released through Siren-Bookstrand.  The story is about finding new love, surviving loss, and heartbreak.  My two characters come from two different worlds and are both struggling from their own personal heartache.  But when their paths cross unexpectedly, the chemistry between them is sizzling.  They both struggle to resist what they feel for each other and I loved watching these two characters grow together.  I had a lot of fun writing this story and hope my readers will enjoy this story as much as I did writing it.        

 
Plotter or Pantser?
I am such a Pantser.  I would be lying if I said I outlined every story because I don’t.  My creativity works best when I let the characters tell the story.  I usually start with a general idea, and then I let the characters take the ball and run with it.  I've tried outlining a complete story and it slows me down. 

What makes a great hero?
I think a great hero is a protagonist that is brave and willing to take a risk even at his own personal expense.  He shouldn't be completely perfect either, having flaws and overcoming them makes the hero much more relatable.  I love to see a hero start off with certain issues inside himself, and he grows from them.  He also is passionate, desirable, brave and of course he must be sexy as hell.

Do you have anything in common with your characters?
I supposed I do without consciously thinking about it.  But it is not something I intentionally plan.  My characters come to life in my head when I write.   I am only observing it from inside their world, not mine. 

What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo?
Music is a must.

Coffee of tea?  Coffee please.

Wine or beer?  Wine.

Is there anything you won't write?
I write what I feel.  I do not put a box around it in my mind.  If it appeals to me and I think there is a good story there and it flows out of me, then I write it. 

What’s the strangest (neatest, coolest, etc.) thing you’ve ever done?
I was diving in Mexico and there were sharks in the water with me.  It was kind of freaky at first, but I got over it and I found it to be kind of cool.  Now granted, it wasn’t a Tiger Shark or Great White, but a nine foot Black Tip that is bigger that you is still kind of scary.

Do you listen to music when you write? If so, what type(s) do you lean towards?
Yes, rock, hip-hop, alternative, 80's. I'm all over the place when it comes to music. 

 Who are some of your favorite authors?
Laurann Dohner, Kresley Cole, Gina Showalter, Jade Black, and Larissa Ione. J.R. Ward to name a few.

What are you currently working on, or what’s on the horizon?
I am currently working on another vampire novel called Into the Shadows of Night which is the continuation of my Night Series.  I also just got signed with Ellora’s Cave for a seven book deal and my latest novel Whispers of Night will be released through them hopefully before the end of the year.

What do you do when you’re not writing?
I work in the legal field during the day and spend time with my family on my off-time.  I'm also a little bit of a social butterfly and love to hang out with my girlfriends when I can carve out a little bit of time.

ADULT EXCERPT
“What are you going to do with me?”
“Keep you here with me.” He placed both hands on the bed and crawled toward her. His eyes swept over her approvingly.
“Why? What do you want?” she breathed, already taking a guess as he inched his way toward her.
“I should not want anything from you, Mina.”
“Please stop,” she whispered faintly.
“Your scent is intoxicating to me. It’s strange, but I find myself inexplicably drawn to you somehow.”
“You’re drawn, to me?” Mina panicked. She felt her heart race and her pulse thumped loudly in her ears. Oh shit! Now what? The mysterious male crept forward, never taking his eyes off her.
“Yes. I desire you,” he replied in a husky tone.
He slowly pulled the material from her hands and she froze. He drew her down flat on the bed, hovering above her. She looked at him in shock, but for some odd reason she could not fathom, she did not try to resist him. There was something purely raw and masculine about him. He looked at her like no man ever had before. Why was she dropping her guard with him?
“Please don’t hurt me?” Her voice shook.
“Shh, do not fear me,” he murmured as he gazed over her parted lips.
“I’m trying not to, but you are freaking me out a little.”
“You are very beautiful, Mina,” he said softly. “You make me want things I have not desired in a very long time.” His mouth was tense, sensuous.
She pushed against his chest when it made contact with her flesh. Through his shirt she could feel the hard planes of his broad chest. Her nipples pearled, aching suddenly to be touched by him. The muscles rippled beneath his skin as they brushed against her swollen buds.
“Stop,” she whispered even though part of her didn’t want him to stop. “Don’t hurt me,” she whimpered, but still she did not push him away. He arched an eyebrow, lowering his mouth to hers.
“What I intend to do will not hurt,” his lips twitched in amusement.
Why am I not trying to fight him off? She was naked and this tantalizing male was hovering above her ready to devour her. She sucked in a breath when he spread her thighs and settled between them. A hot ache grew as explosive currents traveled through her body. She opened her mouth to protest as gentle lips brushed over hers. His breath was so sweet, it intoxicated her. He groaned softly as her lips parted and he captured her mouth with his. He deepened the kiss, stroking her tongue with his. She tugged his hair, tipping his head, their mouths meshing together greedily. He suddenly broke away from the kiss, his breath coming out harsh.
“Why am I doing this?” he whispered to her, pressing his lips into a tight line.
“I don’t know, but don’t stop.” Mina slid her hand around his neck and pulled his lips toward her again. The kiss intensified as his hands slid down her throat and he squeezed her breasts. A low rumble vibrated in his chest as he caressed her sensitive nipples. He leaned forward and captured one in his mouth. He sucked and licked. She threw her head back and arched toward him. His tongue set her body on fire with every caressing sweep. Her whole body shook when his hand trailed down her stomach and squeezed her inner thigh. She felt his heavy arousal pressed against her belly through his pants. It caused an immense, unyielding desire to come over her. She wanted, no, needed him. It was crazy what she was allowing to happen here. His mouth descended on her again, devouring her lips passionately. She ran her fingers through his hair, drawing him closer. His lips were relentless, leaving her panting and aching for more.
“Mina,” he whispered hoarsely against her throat as he ran his nose along her jawline. She felt a shock of pleasure. “I want you. Please tell me yes.”
“I…I can’t think.” She gave a shuddering gasp as his mouth covered her breast again and he sucked the rosy tip roughly. The sensation shot straight to her clit and she found herself rolling her hips against his erection. He growled against her damp flesh and she heard another moan escape her lips.
“Say yes.” He groaned in a deep, husky voice.
“Yes,” she breathed. She couldn’t believe she was telling him yes, but she could not fight her intense attraction to him. The hunger to feel him inside her was overwhelming.
He stood up and dropped his pants. She could see the outline of his cock through his black boxers. He was a big male all over. His large cock sprang free when he pulled them down his sexy thighs. He grabbed his shirt and pulled it over his head. She couldn’t help but admire the sight of him. His hard, flat stomach was lined with muscles, and a dark trail of hair descended from his chest to the impressive shaft between his legs. He leaned on the bed and crawled toward her like a predator stalking his prey.
Oh my, I can’t believe I’m doing this. Mina was too aroused to put up a fight though, as it seemed her body and mind were already on automatic pilot.
“Open your legs for me, Mina. I want to see all of you,” he ordered in a deep voice.
“Why?” She suddenly felt self-conscious and tried to sit up.
“I’m curious,” he murmured huskily.
“Okay.” She hesitated, biting her lower lip. Thracian slid down the bed, grabbed her inner thighs and pushed them apart. She laid back and closed her eyes. The room was bright, and it felt weird having him stare at her girlie parts so intimately. A low rumble vibrated in his chest, and she felt his hot breath inches above her.

Romanticon Through the Writer's Eyes

I was all set to write about my experience at Romanticon, but Danica Avet did a great job. So, read her blog and help her come up with questions for the Cavemen!


I’m back again with another recap of RomantiCon 2012. Before I get to the meat of the post I have a special announcement. I worked my ass off to hunt track down each of EC’s cavemen to ask them one special question: Would they mind being interviewed here on my blog. And you know what they said? They’d love to! The things I do to try to make y’all happy. You want the sexy menz? I’m going to bring them to you, but you have to work for it first.
I’m giving you until Monday, October 22 to come up with some questions you’d like me to ask these wonderful men. And they are wonderful. Please leave your questions in the comments and I’ll compile them for the guys next week so we can all get to know the Cavemen a little better.
And now, the rest of the story…

Hmmm, mi primo is finally realizing that Danni is always en casa. He doesn’t have a clue when and where she sees her novio. After all of these years, la familia is finally wondering about Danni’s novio. This is unreal. What if her novio was a jerk that had her really controlled, and they didn’t even know anything about him.
Yeah, I think that we need to start planning our escape before someone figures out it’s me. I know that the entire familia will be pissed off at us and most likely it will be worse for me since I’m el hombre.
Damn it, I need to pray that Dios will help us out. Si, after being together all of this time, I will die if we’re forced to stay apart. I know that mi Danni es mi vida, es mi mujer, contemplates Nick.

Months later- small crumb
“Si, mi hija, yo lo se, you have made me tan feliz. Mi Nicolas is being foolish. I can explain todo. Mi hija, I can see that you have both suffered. Daniella, why have you kept tu amor and tu boda from la familia? Is it because your primos?” asks Tia Maria.
“Si, Tia, we couldn't stop from feeling this amor. We tried to ignore it, but as we got older, our amor got stronger,” says Danni with tears. “It has been really painful.” 
“Oh mi niña, you have suffered so much, and for no reason. You should have told me, us. I could have……..    (says Tia Maria, Nicolas mama).

Plotter or Pantser?
I’m a plotter and then I become a pantser as I start to write.

What makes a great hero?
Hot sexy alpha males make great hero. The hero can arouse tantalizing ecstasy transporting you into the magical world of his love.


Do you have anything in common with your characters?
I would say a tad. I’m a strong women and that’s about it, lol.

What item, or items, is absolutely necessary to your writing mojo?
I love to have quiet and no interruptions.

Well I can’t think of one. My kids always say that I’m odd, oh well.

 S. Kenyon, J.R. Ward.

Ricky is in a hurry getting out of his carro, damn it I’m almost out of time. We have a meeting with the new client and I have to make sure that the contracts are correct before I turn them over for Jose Enrique’s review. Si I hate running behind schedule and I’m always on it. I don’t usually arrive so early at the office, thinks Ricky grabbing his portfolio from his carro.
Ricky strides into the hall to get the elevator, missing it, watching the doors close. He stops in shock, damn it, that’s the hermosa muneca from yesterday, thinks Ricky standing, watching her just before the doors close.
Wow, I totally missed an opportunity to talk to the muneca. How can I get to know her? I know that she recognizes me. She is looking at me with shock. Yeah, she didn’t expect to see me and I sure as hell didn’t expect to see her.  I need to talk to her outside of the building. I don’t want to cause any issues with la familia’s company employees, ponders Ricky impatiently waiting for the elevator to come down. I know that she works here, but a lot of good that does me. My body won’t calm down, I’m totally awake now. I don’t know what it is about her that provokes these amazing overwhelming reactions.
