We Are Sexy Hot! 100th #MySexySaturday! Scene from upcoming M/M Romance

476a9-lynnsexysaturday_buttonFor the 100th My Sexy Saturday, I have a Sexy Hot Scene from my upcoming Male/Male romance Between the Notes (and let’s give it up for SCOTUS!).

“I said, get in!” Damon hadn’t intended the vitriolic note in his voice, but it brooked no argument from Michael, who hustled around and jumped in the car as Damon shut off the engine.

Michael had just closed the door and opened his mouth to speak when Damon leaped over and captured his mouth, releasing weeks of pent-up passion and years of unfulfilled need. Michael had flinched at the sudden intrusion but recovered in a split second, grabbing the back of Damon’s head and bringing him closer as their tongues wrestled in consumption more than kiss. Damon wrapped his arms around him in complete surrender, shattering any vestige of deniability.

While not the most comfortable of conditions, with the console between them, Damon’s own rod—harder than the gearshift—caused him further discomfort as it strained against the denim; but even more than wanting to free his own dick, he had an overwhelming desire to touch Michael’s. He had never had such an impulse, protecting his anonymity to the detriment of any other concerns and making him a selfish lover, if he could call himself that, always the recipient in those lurid encounters in men’s rooms or dark alleys. With his hands on Michael’s face and neck, deepening the kiss—as it could only be considered one kiss since they had not parted since his initial attack—this bore no resemblance to those rash and rushed blowjobs he received with the bass from some retched techno-music seeping through the walls.

No, this was Michael, with eyes so deep he could drown in them. Michael, whose pulse beat wildly against Damon’s hand just as his own heart thundered out of control. Michael running his hands up Damon’s shirt, touching his skin and leaving a trail of flames wherever his fingers met flesh.

Michael’s hands continued their journey downward, unbuttoning and unzipping Damon’s jeans—freeing him both literally and figuratively—then taking hold of his dick. The release and relief forced Damon to break away from Michael’s mouth just long enough for a gasp and a guttural moan. Michael gripped Damon’s shaft in his fist while running his thumb over the head, sending shockwaves up Damon’s torso and setting off fireworks behind his eyelids. Damon reached for Michael’s crotch, the hard length of him begging for attention, but here his inexperience made him falter, and heedless of his longing to hold that cock in his hand, his trembling hands fumbled with Michael’s jeans.

With dexterity, Michael unfastened his jeans while still tantalizing Damon’s cock and exploring his mouth with a tongue that tasted of wine and promise. How much better is thy love than wine—the verse emerging unbidden from the recesses of Damon’s mind as he reached into Michael’s open fly to pull out his thick, hard dick, much bigger than Damon had thought each time he tried not to think of it. His fingers traced over the fully-engorged shaft before running around the ridge and teasing the velvety head, causing Michael to groan into his demanding kiss and pull Damon closer, delving into his mouth with a thoroughness that stole his breath away.

Damon wrapped his hand around Michael’s girth and rubbed his thumb around the head with the moisture that had formed there. He circled the ridge, each touch only deepening his need. As much as Michael’s fingers caressing the top of his dick thrilled him, he could think of nothing but wanting Michael’s cock in his mouth, as if his life depended on it. He hungered to run the tip of his tongue over its head as he did with his thumb now, to feel that ridge on the roof of his mouth as his shaft slid across his tongue and deep against his throat. And his desire frightened him.

About the Author 

colette headshot bwColette has been writing poems, short stories, and novellas since grade school and experienced early success in having several of her poems published in her junior high school newspaper.  Her interest in literature led her to marry her college English professor, but eventually a love of history encouraged her to trade up to a British historian.

Technical writing has dominated Colette’s career for the past twenty years; but finding little room for creativity in that genre, she dedicated fifteen months traveling to Europe and Britain, researching Regency England and vampire lore and literature, to complete her first full-length novel, Pulse and Prejudice (Austenprose Readers’ Choice: Top 5 Books of 2012) – the bestselling paranormal adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, which tells the story of Mr. Darcy, Vampire. Pulse and Prejudice was also selected the 2013 1st Place Winner in Category: Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction.

Colette was named “Debut Author of 2012” by Austenprose and selected a 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist for her novel The Proud and the Prejudiced (abriged as All My Tomorrows), which was also selected the 2013 “Favorite Modern Adaptation” by Austenesque Reviews and voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2012” (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Colette’s latest release, the romantic thriller Alicia’s Possession, was the publisher’s #1 Bestselling Romantic Suspense for 4 straight weeks following its debut in June of 2013 and then again in January, 2014, after being voted a “Top Ten Romance Novel of 2013” (P&E Reader’s Poll).

Her next release is the romantic noir thriller, The Widow, and she is currently researching and writing a sequel to Pulse and Prejudice entitled Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, which follows the newlywed Vampire Darcy and his bride Elizabeth from Britain to Antebellum New Orleans.

Colette lives in South Louisiana with her historian husband and their two dogs.

REVIEW of “Pulse and Prejudice” by Colette L. Saucier

New Review of Colette Saucier’s Vampire Darcy @Scarletxxo

my vices and weaknesses

I was eager to read this book not only because it is a variation of Pride a Prejudice but because it involves vampires.

I have to confess that I like the “Twilight Saga”, I read the books before watching the films and I liked Edward Cullen from the first page. However, I have always preferred the “proper” vampires that people discover with Bram Stoker’s Dracula and in my case, also watching the film adaptation  of Anne Rice’s Interview with the vampire.

I was pretty sure, without reading anything about Pulse and Prejudice, that our Mr Darcy was going to be a “real vampire”. I was more than happy to discover that I was right.

We can experience a different approach to this love story, where the passions are stronger and where the pain is sharper. Mr Darcy does not only fight the social status, he fights his own condition…

Cover Reveal and Giveaway! THE DEEPEST WELL by Juliette Cross

Lady Katherine Blakely is married to a monster. At the height of the London Season, she discovers how low his debauchery sinks on the night of the Weathersby Ball. This same night, she meets a charming stranger, a gentleman from top to toe, not a wolf in gallant evening dress as so many of them are. But even he is not all that he seems.

Lord George Draconis Thornton has returned from abroad as Earl of Melbourne. As the commander of the Dominus Daemonum, demon hunters set on earth to purge the world of creatures corrupting mankind, his mission is to expel the demon prince, Damas, back to the underworld before he damns his last remaining descendant. But a golden-haired beauty derails his plans. Determined to save her from an abusive marriage, he loses his way. And the price for his failure will be the greatest loss he has felt in all the centuries he has lived on earth.

Captured by Damas, Lady Katherine falls too far—into the hands of a seductive demon prince determined to own her, body and soul. When George finds her in his lair, will he want the tainted woman she has become? When she’s taken back to earth, will she purge away her past and rise from the ashes? George knows of only one way to save her soul, but the cost will break her heart…and his own.

Our Sexy Best ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday

My Sexy Saturday“This week’s theme is Our Sexy Best and it brought to mind another song: Tina Turner’s The Best. If you haven’t heard this song, you should look it up because it has all the emotion needed for a hot, sexy romance. The one line that really carries this theme is the second one: Better than all the rest. This line is what this theme is all about.

“This theme has no genre, no rules except that the characters know their other half is better than all the rest. They may have had lovers before but nothing compares to the lover they are with.”

 

 

 From the romantic mystery thriller DeadlineGillian is telling Sam why she can’t stay with him…

DEADLINE
“I can’t stay here forever. And all my reasons for leaving still exist. Mind-blowing sex and dominance and bondage and fulfilling my fantasies is no basis for a permanent relationship.”

He arched an eyebrow with his crooked smile. “I don’t know. Sounds pretty good to me.”

Although she laughed, she resisted when he tried to enfold her in his arms and pulled back. “You know what I mean. Because…” She glanced downward for a moment then back to his eyes. “Because I’m afraid of falling in love with you.”

Caressing her bottom lip with his thumb, he said, “I’m already in love with you.”

She closed her eyes and shook her head. “No, don’t say that. You can’t be.”

He stilled her by placing his hand upon her cheek, and she looked up at him. “I am, Gillian. I love being with you. I love taking care of you. I love that you talk dirty in bed. I love fucking you, and I love hearing you say that you want me to fuck you. I love thinking about you when we’re not even together, which I have been doing since the moment I handed you that can of chili. You’re just going to have to accept it. I am in love with you.”

Pulse and Prejudice – a review by The Swish Family Robinson

“I LOVED Pulse and Prejudice and having just finished it, feel I need to read it again!”

index

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Pulse and Prejudice by Colette L. Saucier for Netgalley.com.

I really did not want to like this book. As a die-hard Pride and Prejudice fan I have always felt that there should be no messing with the perfection of the original tale. But while I love my precious original version I must admit to having my interest piqued by the spin off tales I’ve been seeing in recent years.

Pulse and prejudice appealed to me because I enjoy a good supernatural novel and the idea of Mr Darcy as a vampire appealed probably more than I care to admit.

I started the book thinking it would be a waste of time and was prepared to scoff at what I thought would be a bumbling attempt at reinventing the wheel. I’m not ashamed to admit how very wrong I was.

I LOVED Pulse…

A Good Ole Sexy Time ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday

LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW TO WIN ONE OF THREE KINDLE COPIES OF THE ROMANTIC SUSPENSE THRILLER DEADLINE!
My Sexy Saturday
“This week’s theme is A Good Ole Sexy Time and think about things like the Dukes of Hazzard or maybe Nashville or the Appalachian Mountains. This week is about…well…normal people. You know, the boys next door, the good ole boys, the boys of summer and everything in between. There is nothing more sexy than a man at the beach or getting done with his chores or doing his best at any task.”

I don’t know anything about the “Dukes of Hazzard” or even Nashville (other than the Robert Altman film), but I can offer you a sexy snippet of Sheriff Taylor hard at work in his little town up in the Adirondack Mountains….

In this scene early in the novel, erotic romance author Gillian Tate has just been pulled over by the gorgeous sheriff…

DEADLINE“Well, this is out of one of my fantasies,” Gillian said.

“What is?”

“Being pulled over by a good-looking cop and getting frisked, then…doing whatever’s necessary to get myself out of a ticket.”

He swallowed then leaned through her window and spoke against her ear. “If it weren’t the middle of the day, and if there weren’t a dash-cam on that patrol car, I’d have you step out of your vehicle, assume the position, and spread your legs.”

He stepped back as a heated flush overwhelmed her face.

“So.” She choked on the word through her nerves then cleared her throat before speaking again, catching a glimpse of his smug smile. “So, Officer, are you stopping me on official police business?”

“I do enjoy making you blush.

My Sexy Delight ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday

My Sexy SaturdayLEAVE A COMMENT BELOW TO WIN ONE OF THREE KINDLE COPIES OF THE ROMANTIC SUSPENSE THRILLER DEADLINE!

“This week’s theme is A Sexy Delight and it can mean just about anything. When we first thought of this, the song Afternoon Delight came up as well as thoughts about sexy evening delights and other wondrously sexy things. Basically, this one is up to you.

Still, we want to remind you to think about lovers committing to each other, no matter where they are. The stakes can be high or there can be no stakes.”

Here is an excerpt from GFA Nominee Deadline, and the stakes couldn’t be higher as author Gillian Tate is pursued by a hate group out for blood.

Also at risk is her heart because the torrid love affair she has begun with the town sheriff frightens her as much as being the target for murder.

DEADLINETaylor tapped on her window with his nightstick. “Roll down your window and turn off the engine,” he said with an authority that would not be broached. She straightened up and did as he instructed but with her eyes directed forward. “What the hell do you think you’re doing? You’re leaving? And you’re just going to drop a bomb on me like that over the radio and then run off? I don’t think so.”

“My best friend is dead, my friends and family are in danger. I can’t just hide up here.”

“And what about us?”

She shook her head. “That’s why I have to go now. There is no ‘us.’ There can’t be an ‘us.’”

“Goddamnit, look at me, Gillian!” He thumped the roof of the car with the bottom of his nightstick, and she jumped. She turned to him with shining bloodshot eyes as he leaned into the window. “Why can’t there be an ‘us’?”

“Our lives are just too different. You’re the police chief in this tiny town up here practically in Canada. I live in the City, and I have this writing career that has me traveling all over the world. I can’t stay here. I need to leave before we get in too deep.”

“I hate to tell you this, sweetheart, but we already are in deep.”

My Sexy Love ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday

My Sexy SaturdayLEAVE A COMMENT BELOW TO WIN ONE OF THREE KINDLE COPIES OF THE M/F ROMANTIC SUSPENSE DEADLINE!

“This week’s theme is My Sexy Love. The first thing we thought of with this theme was Hands of Love by Wall of Voodoo. Or how about Corey Hart and Sunglasses at Night. Maybe a little of Art of Noise and Moments in Love. Then there’s the Fine Young Cannibals and She Drives Me Crazy or Chris Issac with Wicked Game. These are the things that help drive writers to write. Music, songs and the people who sing them. And we aren’t forgetting the now generation with songs like Your Love Is My Drug or  Like Yesterday and the hundreds of others that remind us each and every day why we write romance. There is something special in writing about love and how two people, sometimes more, can find how important it is. It’s special to us as writers if we find a song or a series of songs that epitomize that love story.”

Here is an excerpt from my upcoming Male/Male romance Between the Notes, except in this scene the handsome prosecutor Michael is serenading the very-much-in-the-closet rock star….

As Michael stroked the strings into E Minor 7, he whispered more than sang the words, so low Damon had to strain to hear, “I heard he sang a good song…”

Damon recognized it even before Michael reached the chorus—“Killing Me Softly with His Song”—striking a chord within Damon’s chest with more force than his fingers struck the strings. My pain. My life. My dark despair. No, he couldn’t possibly know. Michael’s voice was not strong, and yet it had the power to rip off layer after layer of the protective cocoon Damon had woven around himself, leaving him bare, raw, and vulnerable—completely at his mercy—sending a chill of awareness rippling down his spine. Awareness of him. Of Michael.

Perhaps because of the raspy, ethereal nature of Michael’s voice, a surge of need forhis physical body poured over Damon. The places he imagined touching Michael burned his own skin. He wanted to run his hands across the flesh of his back, and the very thought scorched him, each finger pressed against his ribs until he thought he might spontaneously combust.

And then it was Michael’s hand he imagined, holding tight where Damon’s shoulder met his neck, stealing his breath as Michael’s heat melded into him, fusing them together. Yet they had not touched, the searing heat only in Michael’s song.

Damon’s hands ached with the need to be against Michael’s chest, sending a trembling urgency through his arms, into his heart, and up his throat until he would have been rendered mute if required to speak, let alone sing. Instead, this sensation coursed through his face, warming his cheeks and ears, prickling his sinuses and bringing him to the brink of tears—for longing, aching, needing…to touch him and be touched in return. That chill now replaced with a fever flooding through him, as if he had the flu, flushed his face and torso, increasing the strength and speed of his heartbeat until it must surely pound out of his chest.

“Was it that bad?”

Damon had no clue how long he had sat, still in thrall with Michael’s song, after it had ended, gawking at him like an idiot. Talk. Words. Speech. Damon’s head bobbled, both in response to Michael’s question and to rouse him from his trance. “No, it was brilliant.” Even forcing the words out, they slipped from his lips like spittle.

About Between the Notes:

When an underage groupie stows away on his tour bus to be near her idol, rock superstar Damon Frost suddenly finds himself facing serious charges and a federal prosecutor out for blood. He could easily prove his innocence, but only by revealing the secret he has hidden in the closet for years, destroying his image as a sex symbol. Damon thinks a deal offered by US attorney Michael Rellman will save his reputation as a ladies man, but what will protect him from his growing feelings for the handsome prosecutor and the risk to his career?
