Sneak Peek to my #WIPitUP

WIPimage12

 

So, I’m hard at work on my super secret Valentine’s Day project and thought I’d share a little snippet of my unedited story with you.  Can’t tell you too much about it yet, but it does take place in the Black Light world so if you’ve read either Infamous Love or Black Light:Rocked, you know what that’s all about.

Check out this fun excerpt from Jaxson’s POV: 

“Alright, that’s it for now. We’ll have one more staff meeting in two weeks to nail down any last minute items. Everyone have a great day and get back to work.” Jaxson dismissed them, anxious to get on to the second and more important meeting of the day.

Most of the occupants of the room stood and headed for the door, chatting amicably. As expected, the head of his security and the only man who had sat completely silent in the first meeting, Spencer Cook, remained behind.  Unfortunately, so did Maxine.

As soon as the door closed on the office, Maxine interjected, “Okay, it’s time I find out what the hell is going on around here.”

Jaxson had known this day was coming. He’d been dodging her prying questions for weeks.  “Maxine, it’s best if you just get back to work.  It’s getting late and I know you have to pick up your kids after school soon.”

She grinned triumphantly, “Not today.  I told Eric he had to pick them up because I had to stay late for a meeting.”

Blake piped in, “Your meeting wrapped on time.”

“Not that meeting. THIS meeting. The one you guys always have without me,” she glowered.

The serious looking man in the sharp suit who’d sat silently for two hours finally spoke. “You’re not invited. Out.”  Jaxson’s friend, Spencer, had always been a man of few words.  He was used to dealing with women who were the antithesis of Maxine Torres. As a result, Jaxson’s top two employees were like two sheets of sand paper when they got close enough to rub each other.

Maxine didn’t back down, instead she put her high-heeled shoes up on the now vacant chair next to her as if to convey she was settling in for the long haul.  She stared Spencer down with her best glare before responding, “I’m the manager of this club. That means I need to know everything that goes on here.”

“You know everything you need to know.”

“Apparently not, since I don’t have a clue what the hell you guys are up to.”

Spencer broke into a threatening smile Jaxson had seen many times before.  “You couldn’t handle it.”

“I’m a married mother of three kids; one a teenager. We have three dogs, two cats and one rabbit. My seventy-three year old mother lives next door and I’m the president of the PTA.  Not to mention, I put in fifty hours a week making Runway the premier club east of the Mississippi. I can handle anything,” Maxine countered with confidence.

“Well, this meeting has nothing to do with Runway, pets or families so you are excused,” Spencer answered in his condescending way.

Maxine crossed her arms with a humph showing no sign of backing down and Jaxson wasn’t surprised.

“Maxine, Spencer is right. It is best if you head to your own office now.”

She changed tactics, turning to look back at Chase and Emma still sitting on the couch to the side. “Why do they get to stay and I don’t? I’m the manager.”

“Of Runway, yes.  The following meeting is about another venture we have invested in that is not under your control,” Jaxson argued more sternly.

He saw her eyes widen a sliver, excited she had him talking. “But it is under the same roof which means I need to know about it.  Don’t think I don’t notice you all disappearing down the back hallway every night around ten when you think I’ve gone home for the night.”

She’d hit a sore spot with Jaxson. He hated to admit it, but he’d been trying to sneak down to Black Light without Maxine noticing and it was quite frankly pissing him off.  He resented having to curtail his movements in his own club because he didn’t want to make waves with an employee.

I’m the boss dammit.

“Maxine, don’t forget that you work here.  We own the place.  Chase, Emma and I can come and go as we please.”

“That’s not what I’m talking about and you know it. There is something fishy going on around here and I don’t like it.  If you guys are selling drugs or running some other secretive underground illegal business, I better damn well know about it. I didn’t sign up to be involved with anything like that.”

Spencer barked an annoyed laugh, “Oh for Christ’s sake, there is nothing illegal going on here.”

“Prove it,” Maxine shouted back.

“I don’t need to prove shit to you. You have your job. I have mine and God willing, never the two shall meet,” Spencer’s voice was rising.  Jaxson knew his friend would blow soon if he didn’t get Maxine under control.

She barged ahead with her next argument. “Then why is he even here during the Runway meetings? If I don’t get to come to his meetings, he shouldn’t be at mine,” the manager reasoned.

Jaxson had wondered himself why Spencer chose to come.  His friend’s answer only increased the tension in the room.

“I need to know everything that goes on in this building.”

“And I don’t?” Maxine countered. “And what’s with that anyway. Blake here is head of security. If anyone needs to know what is going on everywhere in the building, it’s him, not you.”

“Which is why he is allowed to stay.” Spencer’s normally unreadable face was turning a bit red as Maxine continued to challenge him.

“Just tell me what is downstairs and I’ll leave.”

“You couldn’t handle five minutes down there.”

“What, you have a built-in torture chamber?” Maxine chuckled.

“Something like that.” His reply startled her into silence.

Jaxson had had enough. “All right you two.  You are both important to our success here. I think Spencer is right, though, Maxine.  I can assure you there is nothing illegal going on.  I think you’ll be happier staying in the dark.”

“And I know I won’t rest until I know.” She changed tactics. “He sat silently for my meeting. All I’m asking for is the same courtesy.  I want to sit silently during his meeting.”

Tit-for-tat. That was the game she was playing.  Spencer’s eyes lit up with a dangerous twinkle at the thought of shocking his counterpart.

Jaxson relented.  They were barely a month in and Maxine was already acting like a sleuth. They might as well cut her in on their little secret. “Not one word out of you, got it?” He challenged her.

Maxine made a show out of pretend zipping her mouth and then turning an imaginary key before tossing it over her left shoulder and then returning her arms into their defensive crossed position.

New Release: Infamous Love #WIPITUP #BDSM #Menage

WIPimage12

Happy Wednesday! I’m starting it off with a bang with my hot off the press new M/m/f menage story, Infamous Love.  This is a prequel to my upcoming BDSM series called Black Light.  I’ve included a scene from the next book that I’m working on right now at the end of Infamous Love.

Here is one of my favorite scenes of all from my new release.  It’s actually not a sex scene (sorry), but the moment when Emma’s father finds out about her menage relationship and comes to track her older, dominate lovers down to have a little heart-to-heart.  As you can imagine, her dad is not too happy with his little girl’s new arrangement.

Jaxson, Emma and Chase

Jaxson, Emma and Chase

NSFW Excerpt:

The loud clumping of heavy feet rushing up the wooden stairs to the attic could be heard over the video game. Jaxson grabbed the remote to flick off the power just as the pounding on the bedroom door started.

The men looked at each other nervously, suspecting who might be on the other side of the thankfully thick door. Jaxson moved quietly towards the door, hoping to get it locked before whoever was on the other side burst in to find the naked men.

“Jaxson Davidson and Chase Cartwright, I know you’re in there. This is Emma’s father. Open up.”

The men’s “fuck” was in unison.

It must have carried behind the door because Mr. Fischer’s response was to pound louder. “My sentiments exactly. Now open this door.”

Jaxson looked around the space they’d been holed up in for the last few weeks and knew without a doubt he’d be dead within minutes if he let Emma’s father inside. It was one big sex playroom. Restraints, dildos, vibrators, and punishment devices of all shapes and sizes covered most open spaces. The messed bed still bore the sticky remains of multiple orgasms.

Jaxson made it to the door just in time to hold it closed as the elder Fischer started to open it.

“Hello, Mr. Fischer. This is Jaxson. We’ll be happy to talk with you. We’ll meet you downstairs in five minutes.”

“No, we’ll talk here. Now.”

Chase looked worried and started to frantically try to pick up the most racy of sex toys just in case Emma’s father made it past Jaxson.

Jaxson held his ground. “No, sir. I insist. We’ll talk in the kitchen.”

“You listen to me, young man. I love my daughter very much and I’m coming in there this instant.”

Chase froze, turning to stare at Jaxson with panicked eyes. Jaxson met his heated stare as he replied, “And I love your daughter too, and that’s why I insist that you not come in here now. Trust me, sir. We are best to talk downstairs.”

Despite the seriousness of the situation, Chase’s victorious grin at Jaxson’s declaration of love warmed him.

Emma’s father cursed, “God damn it. Fine. You have five minutes.”

Jaxson waited until he heard the retreating steps before letting go of the door. Chase was still grinning from ear to ear, his arms crossed across his bare chest, the jutting cock Jaxson loved so much swinging between his legs.

“What the hell are you smiling at? He’s pissed!” Jaxson questioned.

If possible, Chase’s grin grew. “I knew it. You love us.”

Jaxson chuckled as he reached for a pair of jeans thrown over the back of the desk chair. “I said I loved Emma. I didn’t say shit about you.”

Chase knew him well. “Uh-huh. Right.” Damned if he still stood there, staring at Jaxson. They’d been best friends for years, so it felt odd to feel uncomfortable with Chase, but he was in new territory and they both knew it.

“Shut up, will you? This is serious.”

Chase took a tentative step forward, moving in Jaxson’s direction slowly. “Yes, it is serious. It isn’t every day the man I’m in love with admits he loves me back.”

Jaxson stood frozen, waiting until his lover entered his personal space. The men closed the final inches between them, their mouths crushing together as Jaxson weaved his fingers through Chase’s long hair, holding his head stationary as he plundered his mouth with a probing tongue. He felt Chase melting against his body like the submissive that he was.

Jaxson moved his left hand down to grip Chase’s thickening cock, dragging a tortured moan from his lover. When Jax pulled out of the kiss, their labored breathing filled the room. “You need to put this bad boy back to sleep until later. I don’t think we need him for what’s coming next.”

Chase’s “Yes, sir,” was perfect and had Jaxson’s own cock filling.

Cover Reveal: Infamous Love #menage #SatSpanks


Saturday Spankings-Val Heart Paddles-revI’m so excited to announce my upcoming release and share the cover for the first time!!! The talented Eris Adderly made this amazing cover for Infamous Love, the prequel for a new series coming this December.  I am so freaking excited to share this series with you.  In this scene, we find out Emma has been purposefully avoiding being seen in public with her very famous lovers for fear of being ridiculed by the paparazzi.  Let’s see how the men handle her putting herself down.

Jaxson, Emma and Chase

Jaxson, Emma and Chase

Excerpt:

“Alright, maybe I should have told you how scared shitless I am to leave the house with you. That I’m pretty sure people will burst out laughing when they see you with me. How social media is going to light up. We’ll be trending on Twitter within an hour and the focus of a scathing TMZ exposé within twenty-four hours.”

Shut the fuck up, Emma. You’re making it worse.

The scowl on Jaxson’s face turned darker as he stepped up to sandwich her between the two men. His hands squeezed her biceps as Chase’s fingers dug into her hips, each holding her stationary.

“Look at me, Emma.”

She’d trained her eyes on his adam’s apple directly in front of her to avoid seeing the disappointment in his eyes.

“Now, Emma.” His order had her snapping to attention.

She’d expected anger, but she saw a sadness in Jax’s eyes. She held her breath waiting for him to bust her for putting herself down.

“I owe you another apology. I was so happy to just hide out for a while that it didn’t dawn on me that you were afraid to leave. I’ll fix that tomorrow. We’re gonna tackle that list of yours together and by the end of the day, you’ll know that all of your fears were unfounded.”

She was smart enough not to laugh at what was surely a joke. It was a good thing too since his next words were scary enough.

“Now what do you think is going to happen next?”

She held her breath, afraid to say the words.

“Emma, answer me. What happens when you put yourself down?”

Her answer was barely audible. “You spank me.”

“No. I spanked you the last time. I see it didn’t take.”

This was not good. What was worse than a spanking?

“Chase, go grab some rope and the wooden paddle. Emma is about to get her first paddling. We’ll see if that makes a more lasting impression on our girl.”

I’m Baacckk… with Call Sign: Thunder

Saturday Spankings-Val Heart Paddles-rev

I’m guessing about three of you might have noticed that I intentionally took a few months off from my blog. No, nothing was wrong. Just crazy busy in every part of my life and since I didn’t have any immediate releases coming soon, it felt like I could sneak away. Since no one called me out on it, it looks like it worked!

But, I’m thrilled to be ‘back in the saddle’ so to speak with a hot punishment scene from my upcoming novella, Call Sign: Thunder. This is my contribution to the smoking hot military boxed set, Hero to Obey which will be released this coming Tuesday, June 28th. You don’t have to wait; you can pre-order today!

This is the first excerpt I’m sharing from this story. This is a non-con scene featuring our damsel in distress, Allie Benson, and the crime lord who kidnapped her. Come back tomorrow for a longer excerpt!

13415648_613352935497164_6846681082762959689_o (2)

Excerpt:
He scowled as he gave his verbal warning, “I suggest you keep your mouth closed unless asked a direct question. I’d hate to have to silence you.”

The way he said ‘silence’ left her wondering exactly what he meant by the phrase. Still, she pressed her luck.  “Where am I, and who the hell are you?”

A look that could only be described as sadistic glee danced in his eyes at her question. She saw him nod to someone standing behind the table she was lying on, and within one second she’d been rolled from her back to her front. The ropes at her wrists cut into her flesh as she attempted to fight the positioning. She felt a line of fire ignite across her upturned ass. Her thin sundress and panties were no protection whatsoever.

The pain took her breath away. She was still trying to cope with it when she saw him nod again through her tears. This time was worse because she knew what was coming before it arrived. The second track of fire was laid out just below the original. Two parallel lines of agony were left as reminders not to speak.

The punishment was effective. It had her pressing her swollen lips together tightly; afraid to utter even a sound for fear it would result in another strike with the punishment implement.

He grinned, clearly pleased with her new cooperation. “Very good. I see you can be trained.”

He was a warrior and used to destruction and devastation, but this time it threatened to push him over the edge. He’d hope in this sequestered environment to reach down and find his humanity again. The last thing he needed was Dara, a waif who nearly drowned in the turbulent water in her haste to run from a violent situation.

Owned by the Marine by Renee Rose

Exfil  by Bethany Burke

Archeologist Emily Becker’s “simple and quick” clandestine trip into Syria to recover a precious artifact turns out to be neither.   Stuck in a bombed out basement with some serious heat on her tail, she needs “exfil,” extraction from a dangerous situation by someone who knows what he’s doing.

Delta Force Mission Specialist Michael Duncan definitely knows what he’s doing. He would fit the bill except for one thing:  he also knows Emily, and their history is not a happy one.

Emily doesn’t know if she’s in more danger from Michael or from terrorists, but she’s about to find out.

Aim for Pleasure by Yasmine Hyde

When a moment of peace turns into a chance at passion, she is drawn in and taken on a ride of ecstasy. She never expects to see the mystery man from her one night of recklessness again, but when he turns up in the place she least expects him, she can’t keep him at arm’s length.

Jaxon returns from a mission just in time to celebrate his brother’s promotion. Hitting the road, he decides to catch up with an old buddy. A detour at a bar winds up being a night to remember. The next day the curvaceous beauty practically falls into his lap again, and seeing it as an opportunity to get to know her better, he pursues.

Can two warriors from two different branches of services, two different paths of life, really find the one in a wanton moment – and can it last for a lifetime?

Safety is an Illusion #WipItUp

ProtectingItAllToday I’m sharing a scene from Protecting it All, Book Four in the Passion Series.  This book is a suspense and I hope it keeps you turning pages and on the edge of your seat. In this scene, Hannah rushes home to find three men coming out of her house.

Excerpt:

Hannah drove too fast across town. She pulled into the parking lot just as Dylan and two other guys even bigger than he was walked out of her front door as if they belonged there. Between the stress of Jake and now Dylan pursuing her without regard for her wishes, Hannah had just about had enough of being pushed around. An anger she’d been pushing down consumed her as she got out of her car, slammed her driver’s side door with a loud thud, and marched full steam up the sidewalk. She confronted the handsome man, who looked comically surprised to see her.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing? You’ve been trying to convince me that you’re this good guy trying to protect me, and now you go and break into my house? You have some nerve!” she stormed at him.

They had reached each other at the halfway point. Hannah made sure he got the message, taking both hands and shoving his chest with all of her strength. It was like hitting a brick wall.

“Whoa. Hang on there. I can explain.” He pulled her into his arms to keep her from flailing at him. The tighter he held her, the harder she struggled to be free.

One of the big guys with him stepped closer to talk softly. “Let’s take this inside. We’re attracting too much attention out here.”

Before she knew what was happening, Hannah was being shuffled along towards her front door, sandwiched between Dylan and a hulk of a man who looked a lot like him. They had to be brothers, the thought of which intrigued her. The third guy, the tallest of the three, jimmied open her door in just a few seconds, telling her that her security was a joke.

Her small apartment seemed downright petite with the three hulking guys filling the space. Mama Rosa had been right in her description of them. They were all strikingly handsome and it was throwing her off. As big as they were, she didn’t feel threatened by them, which didn’t make any sense at all.

Dylan stepped closer, his arms stretched out and his palms up, as if to show her he wasn’t going to hurt her.

“I think now would be a good time for that explanation.” She hated the quaver in her voice.

“I’ve told you that I was investigating Jake Davenport. This is my brother and my boss. They’re here to join the investigation. We need your help.”

“And you thought breaking into my apartment was the best way to get it?” she asked.

“Listen, I’ve tried talking to you, but you aren’t listening to me. Jake Davenport is bad news. We need to get him neutralized.”

“First, you don’t need to tell me. I already know first hand what Jake is capable of. The question is, what is it you think I can do to help you?”

The tallest man stepped around Dylan to answer her. “My name is Lukus Mitchell. We’ve been tracking Davenport for a few weeks now, and we’re working on getting evidence that will put him behind bars.”

“Why? What’s he done to you?”

His green eyes flashed as she challenged him. She got the impression it wasn’t something he was used to.

“He’s hurt my best friend’s wife… badly. And he’s threatening my fiancée. Tiffany can barely sleep because of the nightmares about Jake hurting her and her best friend, Brianna. He’s stalked them both and now they’re under house arrest, locked down with round-the-clock armed guards because Davenport keeps flying to Chicago to try to get to them, promising to hurt them.”

She watched his eyes as he laid out what they had against Jake. Maybe she was a fool, but by the time he finished speaking, she believed him. Hannah saw the fear in his eyes as he spoke about the woman he loved being in danger. She fought down a feeling of jealousy, and wondered if this Tiffany knew how lucky she was to have a man like Lukus Mitchell in her life protecting her. It was something Hannah longed for, but knew she’d never have.

The heftiest of the three stepped forward next. “I’m Dylan’s brother, Derek, and I’m the one who decided we needed to get into your apartment. If there was even a small chance we could get evidence to put Davenport away, we needed to take it.”

Her eyes returned to Dylan’s. “What is it exactly you think I have that can help you?”

Dylan answered. “The accounting books for Strictly Disciplined. He did try to hire you to do his accounting, right?”

“How did you—”

“Because his long-time accountant just turned up dead under suspicious circumstances, and because you recently got your degree. You’re exactly his type. He’s set his sights on you and he isn’t going to stop until he has you… until he breaks you,” Dylan explained.

“Breaks me?”

Lukus answered her. “He’s a sadist. He gets off on dominating women. What makes him dangerous is that he especially likes breaking in women who resist him. It’s all a big game to him.”

Memories of how Jake had tied her down and hurt her before taking her forcibly while she begged him to stop had her shaking. These men had just described her date with Jake Davenport.

Dylan picked up on her thoughts. “Fuck, he’s already hurt you, hasn’t he?” She couldn’t figure out why he looked so angry. “What did he do to you at his house on Monday?”

“That’s none of your business.” The words to confirm what Jake had done to her wouldn’t come. A sense of shame she knew she didn’t deserve washed over her as she remembered not only his actions, but how her body had betrayed her in the most confusing of ways. She looked away, desperate not to let these men see how vulnerable she felt in that moment.

Dylan reached out to gently stroke her arm. The action was such a stark contrast to her memories in Jake’s horror house earlier that week. She couldn’t stop trembling. When she looked up, the three men were watching her carefully.

“He’s never going to leave me alone, is he?” she choked out.

Lukus answered, the pity in his voice clear. “I’m afraid not. That’s why we need to put him behind bars.”

She stepped away from the men, turning her back to them so they couldn’t see the tears coming to her eyes. She wrapped her arms around her waist, hugging herself as she thought.

She had messed up so many times. She should have listened to her internal reservations and steered clear of Jake. She shouldn’t have taken the journal. She should have gone to the police right after he’d raped her; while they could still collect evidence.

I should have packed the car and driven Connor and me away from this place yesterday morning.

Fear for Connor’s safety warred with her own promise to herself to try and prevent any other women from suffering the way she had at the hands of Jake Davenport. Alone, she knew she had no clue how to battle the evil that was Jake. Could these three alpha men help her? Dare she trust them?

The quiet of the room was broken by the sound of the near-by connector door linking her apartment to Rosa’s cracking open. In unison, the three men whipped out concealed handguns, pointing them at the unexpected movement as if Jake Davenport were about to stroll through the door.

Hannah turned on them, holding her arms out wide as if she could somehow stop their bullets with her petite body. “NO! Put your guns away! Right now!”

The men refused to lower their weapons until Connor’s childish voice called for her. “Mommy!”

Hannah was watching Dylan and saw the surprise register in his grey eyes as Connor ran up from behind her to throw his three-year-old arms around her legs, clinging to her, afraid of the big bad men with guns pointed at his mommy. All three guns were lowered to the floor.

Hannah heard Mama Rosa’s wheelchair approaching from behind. “I have my cell phone. I’m calling 9-1-1 in exactly thirty seconds if you aren’t out of here.” Her accent may have been thick, but the men understood.

With the emergency diffused, Hannah turned, pulling Connor up into her arms where he clung to her like a monkey. “It’s okay, Rosa. These are actually the good guys. I’ve been having some trouble with a guy at work, and these men are trying to help me get him out of my life.”

Rosa looked each of the men up and down suspiciously before visibly relaxing. She didn’t let them off the hook, though. “Where I come from, the good guys come in through the front door and not the side window,” she scolded.

Lukus answered sheepishly. “Yes, ma’am.”

Hannah snuggled against Connor to hide her smile at the sight of the man who was obviously used to being in charge looking contrite. Her eyes met Dylan’s as his own grin lit up his face. She felt the flush in her cheeks under his scrutiny, liking how he made her feel safe when he was around.

Too bad safety was an illusion.

Blurb:

Jake Davenport is still on the loose, and Lukus Mitchell and Markus Lambert have had enough. They won’t rest until the sadistic Dom who is threatening their women is behind bars…or dead.  They don’t care which. Lukus assembles a team of his top security personnel and heads to California leaving Markus and Tiffany’s cop brother, Aiden, in Chicago to keep Tiffany and Brianna safe, locked down in the loft at The Punishment Pit.

Derek’s brother Dylan is already there, staking out the predator, feeling helpless as he watches Jake lure innocent women into his nest of consensual, but brutal, sexual websites. When Jake turns his eye to Hannah Martine, Dylan decides he’s done with just watching.

Hannah moved across the country trying to escape the demons of her past, but the fresh start she’s hoping for is cut short when Jake presses her to accept a tempting job that will solve her financial woes. Once he gets her alone, the sadist uses humiliation, drugs and brutal force to try to bend Hannah to his will.

Everything comes to a head when Lukus and the gang realize only someone on the inside can get close enough to collect evidence of the illegal activities needed to put Davenport away. Dylan is furious they are even considering sending the innocent woman he has strong feelings for anywhere near the monster trying to break her.

Will Hannah have the strength to walk back into the demon’s lair? And even if she does, will the threat against Brianna and Tiffany be dissolved? Jake is obsessed with the women from his past, and as authorities close in, he will become desperate for his revenge against Lukus and Markus.
