Shifting Fate by Wren Michaels
Sylvia Schneider loves her some Navy SEALs, but only the ones she creates digitally for the video game she’s producing with Noah Wright. Devastated by the death of her military fiance, she hasn’t dated in two years, much less left her apartment. But when Noah asks her to introduce the new game at a convention in Vegas, she’s forced out of the house and her shell. To top off her already building anxiety, she’s been getting nastygrams from someone claiming she stole their game design. Threats on her life send her to Gerri, owner of the Paranormal Dating Agency, for a shifter bodyguard. Sylvia is adamant that it’s just for the weekend, and just for an escort, and not that kind of escort.

Braxton “Brawn” O’Brien was the runt of his pack. He left home to make a name for himself as a Navy SEAL, where as even the smallest wolf, he towers among the humans, using his preternatural abilities to save lives. But lately his wolf side has been battling anger issues, and the rage inside him cannot be quelled. He’s forced into medical leave to figure out what the problem is, or his military career is over.

When Gerri hooks Braxton up with a bodyguard gig while on leave, he hopes she can also find him a mate to satisfy the beast roaring inside him. One look at his charge, Sylvia, and he knows she’s the one. The problem is then convincing the spunky, yet shy human of the same. When the threats on her life turn into attacks, Braxton will hunt until his last breath to keep his mate safe. But Sylvia’s got secrets of her own, that may make or break the mating bond.

 
Bear Naked by Leteisha Newton

 

 

Alejandra Perez wants nothing more than to continue writing her Hear Me Roar blog posts, and educate today’s woman on standing firm, loving their bodies—all curves included—and understanding that love isn’t always necessary. She’s had her own rash of bad luck in that department and she wants others to know that love doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all. When a visitor challenges Ally to opening her heart to love, with the help of Gerri Wilder and Paranormal Dating Agency, she decides to record the process on her blog to show that she can be happy all by herself.

Deni and Rich have always been connected in life and individually haven’t been able to find a mate. The two decide it’s because they need one woman who can understand the unique way they are bonded and give their dilemma over to Gerri to find them a mate. The catch? She has to be also strong enough to wrangle their bear sides fighting for supremacy over their clan—an issue that puts strain on their friendship and leaves them feeling broken, as well as sending the clan into civil war.

If finding love with two men amid her disbelieve in true love wasn’t enough, Alejandra faces a vicious rival who’d rather remove one of her bears, and take her place as alpha mate. She’ll have to fight for love and her place if she ever wants to have true happiness.

WARNING: Book contains foul-language, a woman decidedly not in distress, but in great need of love from two men who will love her spunk, and hot, kinky sex that will set the pages on fire. If explicit scenes, bad words, violence, and a spanking or two isn’t your sort of book, this isn’t for you. But, if you like it rough, hard, and a whole lot of dirty, come on inside.

Playing with Fire by Margaret Madigan

When Vlad Golakov is sent to New Orleans on a protection detail, he plans to get the job done quickly, then enjoy the Big Easy. But when the woman he’s assigned to finds out he’s there disguised as her date, she ditches him at the first opportunity, complicating the job.

Angela Reeves is an investigative reporter on the trail of several missing women. Her leads all point to a local band called Cry Wolf. When she goes to a concert to search for clues, she doesn’t anticipate waking up as a wolf, or being rescued by her hot dragon shifter date.

Vlad tracks Angela to a rundown plantation outside New Orleans where Cry Wolf has been luring women to grow their wolf pack. Angela is just another of their victims until Vlad rescues her, but he can’t just leave her to deal with her condition alone. As they navigate her symptoms, attraction ignites between them. Seeking a safe and remote location for her first shift, they end up back at the plantation where they battle Cry Wolf and teach them that when you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned.

Fated to Mate by Anne Conley

Kelli and Chase grew up together and know the rules: when he comes of age, he’s got to choose a shifter to bond with, period.  And Kelli’s not a shifter.  There isn’t any way around biology.

But chemistry is something else entirely, and Kelli did the one thing she never thought she could do—move to the city to escape it.  Her feelings left her no other choice.  It was the only way she could see for Chase to follow his shifter destiny.

Now, Chase is getting a divorce from the shifter who was supposed to be his bonded mate, and some crazy friend of his Grandma is telling him he can bond with humans.  It’s not the way things have always been in their little shifter community, but Geri Wilder keeps telling him they’ve been doing things backwards.

Now that Kelli is back, Chase is angry and confused, seeing the truth of the mistakes they’ve made.  However, Kelli is only in town to plan her wedding.

To someone else.

With treachery in the ranks, Calder quickly finds himself in over his head. If that wasn’t enough to deal with, pack law decrees that he must be mated.

The Dragon with Girl Tattoo by Julia Mills

 

Lennox O’Lachtnáin, affectionately known as the Mad Bomber, would rather blow himself up than go on another blind date orchestrated by his well-meaning brethren. It was bad enough when they saw him crash and burn with the sexy doctor from Max’s Pride, but now they’ve all been witness to a string of failed first dates and botched meetings the likes of which no doubt have his ancestors turning in their proverbial graves. Fate was messing with him, BIG TIME, and he’d had enough.
The best laid plans…

One drunken night with his brethren to drown his sorrows and Lenn has a new tattoo, his head’s beating like a bass drum, and there’s a raven-haired beauty in his bed who makes his heart race and his dragon send smoke signals. There’s only one problem…she won’t wake up.

Cue the handcart to Hell…
Did Fate have to throw one more curve ball into his quest for a happily ever after? Well, of course She did. Did the Universe really have such a perverse sense of humor? Absolutely, no doubt. And who in the Heavens is this tiny platinum-haired woman who refuses to take no for an answer? Did she say something about a dating agency for paranormals? No way…time to get off the ride.
His one night stand has left him with more than new ink. Lenn has no doubt the sexy siren is his mate, the one created just for him, the other half of his soul…but there’s no way in Heaven or Hell he’s mating one of her kind. Nope, it’s just not happening. Alone is better than eternity with…with…that. There’s only one answer…blow something up and have another beer.
The Universe does make mistakes. Fate will be denied…or will it?
Claiming Her Dragons by Lia Davis
Be careful what you ask for…
The beautiful, curvy Jackie Olsen has a sex drive in hyperdrive. Her last boyfriend broke it off saying she was too exhausting for him. Without much hope for finding what she needs in the human gene pool, she turns to Gerri Wilder for help, hoping a shifter, or two, could keep up with her desires.
 
Jackie just isn’t prepared to go on a date with not one, but three hot dragon shifters.
A Wolf in Bear Clothing by Renee George
 
Since only a male heir can assume the reigns of the Orsino Bear Clan, quirky and curvy Quinn Orson needs a bear husband and fast. Quinn would willingly let go of her father’s title, wealth, and property—after all, she’s a doctor and lives independent from the clan, but if she doesn’t find a suitable mate in the next two weeks, her mom and younger sisters will suffer the harsh consequences. Quinn wants to save her family’s legacy–she just doesn’t want to marry some hairy beast to keep it.

Desperate, Quinn seeks the help of the Paranormal Dating Agency. When she meets sexy security specialist Luke Dashwood, their instant attraction makes him the perfect hubby candidate. After all, if he smells like a bear and acts like a bear … then he’s a bear, right? Um…

Werewolf Luke Dashwood wants Quinn Orson, the voluptuous emergency room doctor whose beauty and smarts make his inner beast howl. When he learns she’s gone to the PDA to find a mate—he’s determined to show her that he can be her one and only. Two problems. 1. She’s the eldest daughter of the Orsino bear clan, and needs a mate to keep her family’s legacy intact. To clarify: A bear shifter mate. 2. She’s the target of an assassin hellbent on killing her before she can reclaim her birthright.

Now, Luke’s wolf is ready to bear-up and do whatever it takes to keep the woman he loves safe—even if it means losing her forever.
Forged in Fire by Sheri Lyn
Sypher Delacroix is the leader of a pack of winged creatures that even some shifters believe don’t exist. Their numbers may be small, but pack Alpha has a plan to change that. He knows only one person can help this reclusive group find their mates, Paranormal Dating Agency owner and genius, Gerri Wilder.

Daegan McKenzie’s life revolves around two things, his grandmother and vengeance. When she asks him to escort her good friend Gerri to visit friends, he reluctantly agrees. Now he is searching for the clues to bring his friend’s killer to justice and travelling with a perceptive and slightly scary woman who just might know more about what makes him tick then he does.
Two lives are about to entwine in ways neither of them expected as they learn that sometimes the ashes of your past can be the foundation of your future.
 
Leader of the Pack by Saranna DeWylder

 

 
Leader of the Pack
Leotie Accalia is a wendigo—a badass sin eater who is bigger, faster, and stronger than many other shifters. Even male alphas. Her problem, besides not being able to get a date? When she’s turned, she doesn’t retain any of her humanity. Leotie needs a partner who is strong enough to handle her monster, but can accept his place as beta. It’s no small feat, so she turns to the one person who says she can find anyone their mate: Gerri Wilder.

Gerri knows exactly who the curvy Leotie needs. James Burns. Hero cop. Wolf shifter. Impossibly good man. But there’s something missing from the equation. David MacTiernan. His partner, his best friend. A wolf shifter with dark secrets that may stir the beast beyond control, but Gerri knows he’s what will bind them all together and make them a pack.

When a shadow falls on the small Kansas town and Leotie’s monster comes out to hunt, only the heat between them can light a blaze bright enough to banish the dark.
 

 

Her Wounded Dragon by Sky Purington


Curiosity is a dangerous thing and temptation a death wish. Especially for someone like Vivienne with her complicated past and closely guarded secrets. Yet when she has a chance to get near the enemy because of a sexy dragon shifter haunting her dreams, she doesn’t think twice. Even if it means seeking out a paranormal dating agency and tagging along incognito to scope him out as her best friend goes on a date with him.

 

Kage knows within minutes of meeting Vivienne that she isn’t who she pretends to be. As the right hand man of the enemy, it’s his job to figure out if she’s a threat. More so, if she’s a risk to his hidden agenda and well laid plans. Soon enough, he realizes the only danger she poses is to his hardened heart. After all, there’s no defense against the scorching desire dragons feel when they find their long lost mate.


Her Mane Attraction by Nicole Garcia
Exiled from his native homeland in Africa, Adonis becomes separated from his pride and is forced to make a home in the Adirondacks. The need to claim a mate is strong, but how will he ever find her when no one will give him a chance because of his appearance? Not only did being a white lion make him an outcast amongst his own kind, he’s isolated and constantly rejected in his human form as well.
 
Eira is bored with her run of the mill, mundane life. She loves her job as a pilot and enjoys meeting new people, but something is missing. There’s no excitement, no romance, no special someone to fill the empty space in her heart. Being human, it only makes sense that she date her own kind, which wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t find every man she meets a total bore and completely ordinary.
 
When a skeptical Adonis and an adventurous Eira find themselves hooked up on a not so typical first date arranged by Gerri from the Paranormal Dating Agency, sparks aren’t the only things flying. Their good time quickly becomes a race for their lives as they try to escape the wilderness holding them captive. As if the situation couldn’t get any worse, Adonis has to fight off his rival to keep the one woman who holds the key to his heart.
 
 

 

Blazing Tails by Jami Brumfield


Mystery author Willamena (Willa) Rines is in desperate need for a date to her birthday party. Her boss has set his sights on her. Willa’s editor, Penny and her decide the only way to escape that train wreck is to show up to the party with a handsome date on her arm. She calls Gerri Wilder’s dating agency and asks for a man who can impress, but isn’t interested in anything long term. Her career and heart can’t take getting burned again.
 
As a dedicated arson investigator and dragon shifter, Blaze knows a thing or two about starting and putting out fires on the street and in the bedroom.  He is highly respected and very successful in his chosen career. But his brother, Dyson and family friend, Gerri Wilder are worried he is forgetting the most important part of life, family. It’s not that he doesn’t want to find a mate, but his dragon half is very particular. They break him down and he agrees to go on a date. He plans on one night, nothing more, then he meets Willa and the sparks fly. She is only interested in getting through the night. He knows she is his fated mate and needs to find a way to convince her it could be more than a fling.
  
Fate has a way of forcing their hands. Friendships will be tested, lives put in jeopardy, and a real-life mystery revealing secrets that can destroy both of them are just a few of the obstacles put in their path. If this couple can walk through the fire without getting burned, they may have a future together. Will their love take flight on his dragon wings or die in the embers of their fiery passion?


Her Highlander’s Desire by A.K. Michaels
Have a moping, lovesick friend? No clue how to help her? Why contact Geri Wilder from the Paranormal Dating Agency, of course! Just remember to keep the details hush-hush because not everyone is onboard with the whole supernatural matchmaking thing. As for convincing her mate to let Alinka go halfway around the world…that’s all on Tasha’s shoulders. Tasha has her hands full, but never underestimate the power of an Alpha female.

 

The PDA promised results and that is EXACTLY what they delivered.


Fiery, white hot attraction, like fireworks exploding in the night sky, consume both Alinka and Dara. Unable to control their passion, the couple immediately succumbs to the pull of their Soulmate. Shock and fear over the intensity of their feelings forces both to make rash decisions with devastating effects.

Will Fate and Destiny seal their union? Or will one wolf run leaving the other to lick his wounds and pick up the pieces of a broken heart?

A Wolf’s Hunger Cannot Be Stopped…Or Can It?

Grab this hot paranormal shifter story from New York Times Bestselling Author, A K Michaels.

Not only is it part of Milly Taiden’s Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle World but it’s also linked to A K’s A Wolf’s Hunger series and filled enough hot shifter romance to keep you turning the pages into the wee small hours of the night

 

**Readers familiar with my Hunger series please note: Although this novel is linked to A Wolf’s Hunger, and is set within Kade’s Highland Pack, it is different from the other Hunger tales, as it is a Paranormal Dating Agency story and doesn’t feature the unique ‘hunger’ as in my other books in the series. However, it still has my usual hot Shifters, suspense, angst, and plenty of thrills to keep you going, and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.**

Dragon My Heart Around by Marianne Morea
A dragon shifter, a curse, a rare book,

 

and the woman who is the key to setting him free…


Finding the love of a lifetime won’t happen between the dusty pages of old books, but for researcher Camille Forester, it’s her job. She’s hopeful a call to Gerri Wilder and the Paranormal Dating Agency will fix the lack of romance in her quiet librarian’s life and put her between the sheets instead of just between the pages.

What she didn’t expect was the fantasy hero who appeared in her living room, naked and ready to please. Talk about a book boyfriend come to life! A sex-slave cursed into the book Gerri gave her, his story is too fanciful to believe, yet somehow Camille knows he’s telling the truth. Now all she wants is him and to break the curse so they can have their own happily ever after.

 

 

Hot Wings by Ophelia Bell


Pomona Maurin’s biggest dream is landing a coveted position as personal chef to the stars. She’s busted her ass and put her to-die-for recipes to the test, yet gained zero recognition for her efforts. That is, until Gerri Wilder discovers her culinary talents and knows just the “stars” who need Pomona’s skills the most.

 

Ignazio Karsten and Bryer Vargas are two of the most famous celebrities on the shifter home planet, Nova Aurora. The dragon shifter duo, known regionally as “Hot Wings,” are the reigning Nova Aurora Arena League champions for several seasons running. When a vindictive opponent breaks the rules and nearly kills Bryer during their championship fight, their streak might just be at an end—and so might their careers.

 

Only dedicated training and a strict, high-calorie diet will ensure Bryer’s return to health, and Ignazio’s recovery from a deep depression, but even that won’t guarantee the duo will make it back into the arena for the next season. They need a chef with the particular talents to fulfill their dietary needs and still satisfy their hungry dragons.

 

When they set eyes on Pomona, both men know there’s only one thing on the menu for them. Will they be able to convince their new chef that they want to share more than just her cooking?

 

Ask For The Moon by Rochelle Paige
A determined alpha + An unsuspecting wallflower = A sexy surprise!
 
Seth Bashar carries the weight of the shifter world on his shoulders as the head of their council. Or at least it’s felt that way ever since he attempted the impossible—uniting witches and shifters. As he tries to maintain the delicate balance, finding his fated mate is more vital than ever.
 
Jane Smith has no responsibilities to anyone but herself. Finally. She’s more than happy to fade into the woodwork. When her favorite customer, Gerri Wilder, insists on setting her up on a blind date, she reluctantly agrees.
 

 

It was only supposed to be a harmless night of fun… until it was more. Until he was everything.

Playing with Fire by Margaret Madigan 
When Vlad Golakov is sent to New Orleans to find a missing woman, he plans to get the job done quickly, then enjoy the Big Easy. He doesn’t expect to fall in love with the woman-turned-werewolf or teach the pack’s alpha that when you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned.

Well, first of all because I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in an anthology about one of my favorite cities. New Orleans has a magic like no place else and I come back from visits there full of inspiration. Every part of the city has so many stories of its own. I hope I did justice to the feel of the Big Easy. 

Second, I was glad to have the opportunity to continue the story of Warren and the crew of Evening at Animals. The shifter world in which they live has its own magic that I feel blends with New Orleans, even if the original club is far away in Arizona. The Superstitions are every bit as mystical in their own way. And with all the strife in the world right now, a story about two people from different “races” and backgrounds made me happy. ~ Kate

Paranormal beings fascinate me. To have even a tenth of their superpowers—wow. Tell me you wouldn’t like to use a gift for precognition to find out which stocks to buy or whether you’ll get that raise. That said, special gifts do come with drawbacks (doesn’t everything?). A vamp may live forever, if you call that living, but for some, sunlight’s a killer. Weres frequently have bad hair days. A hot reaper like Zekiel and badass demon like Jewel have their own problems. For her, it’s meeting her ‘soul quota’ for Satan. For him, it’s making sure she doesn’t sign everyone up for Hell before he can reap them. As competitors and lovers, they’ve met their match. ~ Tina

Erzabet

Why I wrote the book: I have always been fascinated by New Orleans and the loupe garou legends in the surrounding swamps. The character of Marie Laveau is also one of interest. What if I could combine the two for a spicy tale of love, redemption and voodoo? Thus sprang the impetus for the Root Workers series and the bare bones of Bayou Shadows. There will be many more books to come and I plan to lengthen this first novella a good deal. I also wanted to showcase what it may have been like to be a gay man in those times, consciously on alert from being discovered. Add in the power of a necromancer in Marie Laveau’s city and you have a powder keg just waiting to explode.

Delia’s character is also one I loved. She wants to know her past, but it is kept hidden from her-for a purpose. There is power in secrets, especially hers. I wanted to explore the loa principle in voodoo and give her a parent who will ultimately help determine if she can navigate the dark side to help save the man she loves. I hope you enjoy the read and remember…there is magic in the moonlight… ~ Erzabet

 The Lion of Frenchman Street started out simply enough: my husband and I spent our last vacation in New Orleans, much of it listening to jazz on Frenchman Street. At one club, I spotted an adorable tattooed female bartender who danced along to the music as she mixed cocktails. I thought she’d make a great character someday. And I knew her hero would be a jazz musician. Being the kind of writer I am, I was pretty sure they’d both be kinky. When I got a chance to write for this collection, I remembered that bar and that bartender and imagined a talented, hardworking sax player, who, like many of the men I’d seen in New Orleans, dressed sharp even in bone-meltingly hot weather. I had no idea who this handsome man really was, though, until I dreamed of a lion. The lion was magnificent, a perfect specimen, until I got closer. Then I could see it had a hole in its ribcage and its heart was bleeding. I woke up knowing that under my hero’s gorgeous, Domly surface, he was a hot mess with a broken heart–and a ginger with crazy hair. From there, I could write the tale. ~ Teresa

MeExcerpt

Creole Corsair was not my first attempt at a novella for this anthology, it was actually my third. The first two attempts kept spinning out of control, and I couldn’t rein in the characters or storyline to fit the parameters set for the story lengths. I’m a complete pantser, so until I start writing I have no idea where my stories will go. So to do right by the anthology, and the two previous stories I started, I had to set them aside for other projects because they need their own full length books. I finally settled on Sabine and Jasper and came up with a plot I could work into a novella. People say write what you know. What do I know? Unrequited high school love, being the chubby kid, and pirates. LOL So I built a story weaving in those three things, tapping into a ‘what if’ scenario that all girls who suffered the unrequited feelings of our first love think about…what if he actually did love us too? I hope everyone enjoys my version of that fantasy. ~Wren

LeteishaGirl

I wrote Phenomenal to be a transitional piece in my Lost Series, a collection of standalone novels around a central lost theme. I loved the song Phenomenal by Eminem and Mixed Martial Arts. I thought “what would happen if you had the spirit of a champion but life got in the way? How bad would you fall down?” In Phenomenal, My hero has fallen to the ground. He’s beaten, torn into pieces, and gasping for breath. And yet he still gets in the ring. But he’s forgotten something…how to fight for himself. That is until he finds a woman who’s had the fight beaten out of her too. And yet she doesn’t give up. She finds a way to leave her abusive husband, and forces the hero to take a long look at his situation. Someone else’s situation can always be worse than your own. If they can get up, you better. And then I took her away from him. Yeah, my hero hated me, and it made him fight harder. That battle between us, he to get his girl back, me to keep her away until he was worthy, created Phenomenal. ~LeTeisha

NewTeaseMB

I joked with the other ladies in the anthology that I wrote this book simply because I like sexy dragons. Because, who doesn’t, right? Originally, I wrote a short piece about a group of dragon shifters for a different anthology call, but I loved it so much I decided I’d rather turn it into a series. Playing With Fire is a prequel of sorts to that first piece and will be followed by the rest of the series about the men of Komodo Security and Private Investigations–all dragon shifters. I like the idea of exploring dragons from multiple cultures and histories, and taking some of the different elements of dragon lore and turning them around for a different take. So…keep a watch out for the next book in the Komodo Securities series! ~Margaret

Our wonderful friend and fellow NOLA Naughty Nin9 author, Amanda Byrnes, passed away in July. We dedicate this anthology to her memory. The loss has touched us deeply. But none more so than by her friend and critique partner, fellow NOLA Naughty Nin9 author Liv Rancourt, who on behalf of Amanda will share some things about why Amanda wrote her story…

This is a story about friendship. It’s a story about hundreds of shared emails and more than a few glasses of wine. It’s a story about laughter, and understanding, and respect.

And that’s just me n’ Amanda.

The story of Sultry contains many of the same elements. Last January, one of the original Naughty Nine authors had to bow out, so I emailed my friend and critique partner Amanda K. Byrne, and asked her if she’d be interested in filling the slot. She agreed, and after we worked out the details, I was treated to a stream of emails. “What about this? Do you think it would work?” She had lots of great ideas – I’ve never known another writer who could top her for spinning plot bunnies – but nothing clicked.

Then in the end of January, she sent me the first scene of a story. Ash, the hero, is a virgin. Rory, the heroine and his very best friend, is not. She’s the only woman he’s ever felt comfortable with, and, to use Amanda’s own words, “…the point … is to gender-flip the whole ‘virgin heroine asks the player hero to take her virginity'” thing. Ash and Rory were friends first, and the steps that led them to becoming lovers makes a fabulously sweet and hot story.

Sultry came together fast – Amanda could crank out the words (good words, too!), and my beta-reading comments were mostly along the lines of “OMG YOU WROTE A 25 PAGE SEX SCENE AND IT WORKS AND I HATE YOU”.

Nah, not really. 🙂 

I didn’t hate her at all. I admired her, and respected her, and damn but I miss her. Amanda unexpectedly passed away on July 5th, leaving behind friends and family and her long-time S.O. I hope you enjoy Sultry, and that you seek out Amanda’s other work. She had so much talent and so much heart, and we’ll all feel her loss for a very long time. ~Liv

The germ of the idea for Change of Heart came from a scholarly article I read about Dr. James Barry, a 19th century British military surgeon. He was incredibly gifted, accomplished, and known for being rude, and after he died, the serving-woman who prepared his body discovered he was a woman.

His story has been claimed by feminists, and more recently by students of trans history. It’s impossible to know how Dr. Barry viewed himself – as a highly intelligent woman who did what was necessary to practice medicine at a time when women were forbidden to do so, or as a man who happened to have a different biology.

Either way, Dr. Barry fascinates me. There are very few records of trans people from before the 1970s, and I wanted to explore how it might have been to live with that kind of secret. We’d agreed to set all our stories in New Orleans, and since few US cities have a more colorful history, I basically just picked a year and went with it. I hope I captured something of the time and place, and I hope you enjoy my sweet and spicy little story. ~ Liv

LeTeisha Newton: So I think this is the part where I’m supposed to say something super cool, win you over, and make you my life-long superfan…OR wait, is that how I am about my anime collection?

Probably.

Basically, I’m an author, blogger, geek, and villain lover (Joker IS MINE!). There shouldn’t be any surprise then that I tend to love my heroes a bit broken, all messed up, and in need of someone who understands them just the way they are.

Ha, my heroines are right there with them. You see, love is nice, it’s sweet. It can be all rainbows and glowing stars. And then it can be dark, twisted, hurtful, and feel so good you have to scream about it. So I write like that. From one side of the spectrum to the other, because that’s real. That’s life. And that’s what we crave–-delving into a fantasy world or not.

Sadly, Amanda passed away July 2016. When she wasn’t plotting ways to sneak her latest shoe purchase past her partner, Amanda wrote sexy, snarky romance and urban fantasy. She liked her heroines smart and unafraid to make mistakes, and her heroes strong enough to take them on.

When she wasn’t writing, she was reading, drinking hot chocolate, and trying not to destroy her house with her newest DIY project. She lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and no, it really doesn’t rain that much.

Adult Excerpt

 

Kal had been trying all morning to get some work done, but his mind kept wandering back to delectable little Ali, and eventually he just quit what he was doing and went to track down her and Conn to see what they had gotten up to. He certainly hadn’t been expecting to find what he had when he’d walked into the observatory, but the sight of the two of them half naked, kissing on the couch brought his cock to full attention in a matter of seconds.

“I see I’ve arrived just in the nick of time.” Kal smiled as he walked up to the couple and ran a finger gently along Alison’s flushed cheek. “Is there room for one more?”

He loved the way her blush got brighter as she bit her lip and nodded yes to him. Conn lifted his head from nibbling on her neck, and Kal slowly leaned in to take the other man’s mouth in a sultry, deep kiss. Alison’s breathing became even more rapid and her eyes went heavy with lust as she took in the scene before her.

Kal had his suspicions that Ali would enjoy seeing him with Conn and Tannen, and it seemed he was correct. The aroma of her desire was filling the room, causing their own pheromones to increase in return. Their sweet little Alison couldn’t have been a better match for them if she’d come straight from their wildest fantasies. It seemed that his plan to convince his two bond mates of that fact was coming to fruition without much interference from him at all. He stopped for a moment to watch as Conn continued to grind himself against the woman below him, drawing sweet whimpers from her lips.

“Get naked and get over here,” Conn said to him after he broke the kiss, and returned to torment Alison with kisses on her neck as Kal rounded the couch and began to undress.

Just as last night, Kal could feel her eyes roaming over his skin as he took off his clothes, and a thrill went through him at the thought that she admired what most of his people saw as a defect. The only other two beings in his life that had ever looked at him that way were Tannen and Conn, and once he’d found them, he’d vowed never to let them go.

Kal loved the sound of her gasp as he took his briefs off along with his pants this time, revealing his long, hard cock that was aching for both her and his Captain.

“Isn’t he beautiful?” Conn whispered in her ear, as they both watched Kal undress, with rapt desire. “It always takes my breath away to see the contrast of his skin against my own.”

Ali looked from one to the other, a slow smile forming on her beautiful lips, and Kal could only hope that she was imagining them entwined in each other’s arms.

“He is,” she finally agreed on a sigh, as Kal finished and moved towards them.

Conn finally released her arms, only to move his hands down her torso, and he began to slowly raise the shirt that had been covering her.

“May I?” Conn asked, looking deep into her eyes for permission to remove the barrier.

****

Alison was so enthralled by the directness of his gaze that she simply nodded in agreement, biting her lip again once the shirt was removed and she was naked to them.

“Ah, no biting, lovely. That’s our job now,” Kal said as his eyes dropped to her mouth and he knelt in front of them both. “I’ve been dreaming about these lips.”

By the time he leaned in and pressed his soft mouth against hers, she could no longer hold back. She grabbed the back of his head and pulled him in for a deep kiss. He seemed to be surprised at first, but then she felt his hands move down to caress her aching breasts and he returned her kiss with exactly the passion and heat she was craving.

“You two are so sexy together,” Conn said as he claimed one of her breasts with his mouth, sucking her nipple deep into his warmth.

She could feel his still-covered cock lightly rubbing back and forth against her pussy. To have the both of them touching her at the same time was scrambling her senses with sensation overload. The harder Kal kissed her, the more Alison felt as though she wanted to crawl right into him, and she couldn’t help but slide her hands into his wavy dark hair to pull him closer. She felt her nails dig into his skin, but all she could do was moan and suck at his tongue wanting everything he had to give.

Kal pulled away, and Ali was bereft at the sudden loss of contact. When she opened her eyes and looked up both men were staring at her with such a look of hunger it took her breath away.

“Why did you stop?” she asked desperately, panting hard.

“Gods, Ali, you could burn me alive,” Kal said in a low growl. “Why don’t we help our Captain out of his pants?”

Ali watched as Kal knelt on the couch behind Conn and began to nibble and lick on the other man’s neck, causing Conn to moan, his head falling back in pleasure. Kal took one of Alison’s hands in his own and slowly brought it down to caress his bond mate’s chest and stomach until finally they found the closure to his pants and released it. Conn groaned loudly when both Ali and Kal’s hands reached inside and found his long, hard cock and stroked it together.

“Are you two trying to kill me?” Conn growled as he opened his eyes and looked down at their combined fingers gliding over his hard flesh.

Alison looked down at Conn kneeling between her thighs, his dark skin such a lovely contrast with Kal’s silver arms around him and the pale cream of her own hand wrapped tightly around his thick shaft. Their skin was a slightly different texture than hers. It was almost like a soft velvet, and she couldn’t stop wanting to roll her entire naked body against them both.

The pleasure was so decadent, she almost felt high just from touching them, especially with their combined scents playing at her senses.

“You need to take the pants off, Conn,” she said, tightening her grip on his cock and stroking it slowly, gratified to see a small bead of moisture collect at the tip.

“As you wish, my lady,” Conn said, before leaning forward to kiss her and then climbing off the couch to remove the last of his clothes, leaving him just as naked as she and Kal.

Alison was distracted watching the thick muscles of Conn’s well-toned body as he stood back up, and then she felt Kal’s hands move along her thighs and open her legs further as Conn laughed out loud.

“You bastard!” Conn teased. “I knew you would steal my spot!”

Excerpt:
“Oh my God. Will you just shut up?” Medina Argos growled under her breath as the snakes beneath her skin hissed and whispered. It was the same word, over and over again and she was about to lose her damned mind.
Pretties…
Yes. Pretties. She needed to find a new pretty or her sisters were going to have her head on a spit—and that was before breakfast. She massaged her temples and willed the pounding in her head to freaking stop. The print of the newspaper spread across the table swam like ants in front of her eyes. She lowered her lids, blocking out the bright daylight streaming in through the blinds. Her snakes loved the light but she on the other hand wished it would cloud up and rain like hell. Then at least the migraine would stop. Just another thing for them to disagree about.
The gallery exhibits laid out in the entertainment section tugged at her consciousness but nothing really rang true. Maybe it was the headache.
Pretties…
“Ugh.” She reached for her coffee and took a large gulp.
The full moon was right around the corner and her snakes were at it hard today. Their voices were a snarl of murmurs that were ever so slowly driving her insane. And they really needed another thing to focus on. Like maybe where she could go to find a good brownie. Or some chocolate chip pancakes. But all they wanted to whisper about was the one thing she couldn’t get them to agree on—their next mark.
“Would you hurry up, already?” She mumbled, poking her stylus into her hair. They hadn’t popped out for a visit yet today, but if this headache kept up, goddess only knew. Temperamental at best, her girls were moody man-hating bitches most days and that was saying something.
So she talked to her hair. Most shifters she knew had the same dual natured problems she did, only they weren’t stuck having snakes for hair and an ass that turned into a giant snake rear end. Well, to be fair, her legs sort of turned into the back end of a giant snake, but it was all semantics. On most people’s scale of sexy, snakes weren’t high up on the list. Hell, they probably weren’t even on the list, but when you’re smote by a goddess, it isn’t like you have much say in the matter.
Other people she’d come across in her travels had at least been wolf shifters or even cats. She, on the other hand, was afflicted with a mythological curse that left her hissing at the moon instead of howling at it. One of the snakes wiggled in her hair and she absentmindedly poked at it with her stylus.
“Not yet. Go back to sleep.”
There went the coolness thing again.
The snakes hissed at her in censure and she sighed. She reached for her cup of coffee and took another sip. The hot black liquid slid over her tongue, cinnamon and earthy. The morning had come too soon. Nightmares woke her in the middle of the night, shaking and sweating, just like clockwork. Her throat closed up like it did when the bastard in her nightmare closed his hand around her neck, cutting off her air, his eyes narrowed into slits filled with rage filled spite.
Favored by the goddess…You’ll be crawling by the time I’m done with you.
And she had been.

#NewRelease Spotlight: OUT WITH A BANG, by Sarah Marsh

What would you do to make all your wildest fantasies come true?

 

out-with-a-bang-evernightpublishing-JayAheer2016-banner2

Laura Harper has spent the past five years chickening out of reaching for what she truly wants, but when fate finally lays it out in front of her, will she have the courage to grab on?

Thank you so much for hosting me today to talk a little about my new release, this book started as a little short story fantasy project and I enjoyed these characters so much that I ended up writing more than I intended. How could I not with delicious characters like Grey and Barrett getting all bossy in my head? I do so love it when they get all bossy…. 😉

Out with a Bang is the first contemporary romance story I’ve written so naturally I took it to a place that I’d fantasized about before…the office. Although I have to admit, my previous fantasies didn’t involve a ménage, but they certainly do now! I hope you enjoy these characters as much as I enjoyed writing their journey.


Blurb:

When Laura Harper walked into her interview for Dover and Harding Engineering, she never could have imagined how rewarding it could be to find a place for herself where her organizational skills were relied upon and needed so badly. Sure it didn’t hurt that the two men who had hired her were straight out of her wildest fantasies, but had she let her feelings go too far? Was it just wishful thinking that they might want her in return?

Greyson Harding and Barrett Dover knew the moment that Laura walked into their office that they’d finally found the woman they wanted to share their life with. So they began by hiring the sweet, shy woman and had hoped that they could convince her that their interest was more than a passing attraction. But after five years they’ve finally run out of time and if they aren’t careful, they could lose Laura for good.

Adult Excerpt:

Grey loved the way Laura’s eyes dilated even further at his whispered words, and when she licked her lips, he couldn’t resist any longer. He closed the distance between their mouths and kissed her finally. When her lips opened on a gasp, he pushed forward and took her mouth like he’d been imagining for all these years.

It was sensual, and deep, filled with all the longing he’d been holding back. She tasted just as good as he knew she would have, like strawberries and the wine she’d had with dinner. He pulled back when Barrett let out a groan, knowing that he had to share the bounty of her soft mouth, and when he did, she moaned and tried to follow his retreat. Grey liked that. His cock was already hard enough to hurt, and the little noises of surrender coming from those sweet lips of hers made him ache even more to slide inside of her.

When Barrett leaned forward and took Laura’s mouth in a desperate kiss, Grey moved his attention to the delectable body that he’d been imagining for what felt like eternity. Laura kept herself covered up, but in those sexy skirts, Grey imagining bending her over on just about every surface in the office. Truth be told, it was significantly cutting into his productivity. He thought about fucking her three quarters of the day, and knew that Barrett did the same. Ironically, without her here to keep things running smoothly, their business would have suffered.

He ran his shaking hands down her sides, his thumbs barely grazing the hard nipples he could see through her dress. The dress he had bought her. He really liked the thought that she was wearing what he had chosen for her. He wondered though, what she’d picked to wear underneath it, and as he found the side zipper and slowly lowered it, his pulse was racing at the thought of all that creamy white skin that was now theirs for the taking. When he reached up and undid the clasp of the halter top around her neck, the dress slowly cascaded down her curvy body, revealing bright, red lace that made both men groan in appreciation.

About the Author:

Sarah Marsh is a hopeless romantic who loves a steamy twist to her plot lines and characters who will go the extra mile in order to find their happy endings.

Sarah lives in British Columbia, Canada. She’s still working a regular day job in an office, so the escape of writing and creating new worlds is the best way to relax and let go. Creating characters who can make her laugh and fall in love at the same time will always be her inspiration, and she hopes that you’ll love them just as much as she does.

Sarah currently has a science fiction romance series published with Siren Publishing, and a dark contemporary MF romance in the works with Limitless Publishing. This is year two into the writing adventure and it’s looking to be a busy one!
