NGWN Promo Holiday Hunk Hop

I am very excited to introduce you to Jack Smith, hero of Dirigibles Are Forever.

TC_DirigiblesAreForever

Jack is an agent for Special Branch in 1890s London. He has been living in a world of secrets and lies for a long time. Holidays are not really on his Long Range Visualization Terminal, especially if he is undercover on a mission. His cover is that of an Aether Traffic Controller at the London Royal Port Authority. No problem. He’s a chameleon and able to adapt to every scenario. Except this time he has a supervisor who dominates his thoughts and fantasies.

Holly is just gorgeous and he wants nothing more than to take the next step, but she is the right woman at the worst possible time.  He’s working on Christmas Eve because this is the one night when he can fulfill his mission. Of course best laid plans always explode to cinders. London is experiencing an unexpectedly white Christmas, meaning Holly and he are snowed in and “trapped” at the dirigible station. Then Holly asks him for one night, no rules, no boundaries, only what they can do for each other.

Jack’s now has to choose between his duty and what he’s been dreaming about for months. Guess what he decides to do?

The idea of this blog hop is to share with you what our heroes get up to over the holidays. Let me give you a snippet…

“Before she could worry over Jack and his similarities and dissimilarities to her dead husband, the subject of her obsession returned. Jack carried her Dewar flask and a mug in one hand and a wet cloth in the other. She raised her brows at him, but he only smiled.

Holly couldn’t ask about it as the second vessel had reached transfer distance. “There it is again.” The same inconsistent blip appeared on the LRVT, but this time much farther west than the previous time. And once again it was just that one flash and nothing more.

Jack poured her a cup of tea. “I added the milk downstairs.”

“Thank you.” She had a sip. “Perfect.” She returned to the LRVT and engaged with the navigator of the Nimrod. Or at least she tried, as that was when Jack sank to his knees beside her and pushed the blanket up so her lower legs were uncovered. She covered the speaking tube. “What are you doing?”

He didn’t say anything, only shot her a look that had her nipples tightening and her pussy moistening. Once again, fire burned in his amazing eyes.

He twisted her chair so she was slightly tilted away from her LRVT. He moved between her legs and forced her to open them. The blanket slipped to the floor, forgotten.

Jack pushed up the shirt she’d purloined from him until her thighs were completely uncovered.

Holly pressed the speaking tube against her chest as he used the hot moist washcloth to clean away the marks of their lovemaking. She wanted to moan when he rubbed the rough cloth across her sensitive inner thighs. He pulled a second towel out of his back pocket and stroked the dry fabric in the wake of the wet.

Then he leaned forward and kissed the skin he’d just cleaned.

Her head fell back and the speaking tube dropped out of her hand. He retrieved the tube and passed it to her. His complete silence and knowing smile elevated the tension.

She had no idea what he planned.

And it excited her beyond belief.

Jack gently pushed her legs wider and kissed his way from her knee to the curve where hip and thigh met. He licked the crease where her leg ended and her pelvis began. She’d never known how sensitive that stretch of skin was.

When he pressed the moist towel directly onto her pussy, she jerked and whimpered. Her hand clenched around the speaking tube. The wet heat after the cool room air was a shock, but an exciting one.

Jack slowly pushed one finger covered in the cloth inside her, cleaning her thoroughly. The slightly rough material scraped along her inside walls, raising the sensitivity level higher and higher.

He moved his finger back and forth and her arousal skyrocketed. He pulled his cloth-covered finger out and dropped the towel. Then he leaned forward and blew on her.

Her hips jolted and she screamed.

Jack held her hips down and licked her pussy from one end to the other.

Noise echoed in Holly’s ears, but she couldn’t place it until he lifted her hand still holding the speaking tube.

Holly froze. Heat filled her cheeks. It was the navigator of the Nimrod shouting in her ear. She thrust a hand into Jack’s hair, trying to make him stop, but he only disentangled her hand and held it to the side. “Jack.” She gestured with the speaking tube, reminding him they weren’t completely private.

But he continued to lick her opening, making her wetter and wetter. Holly wanted nothing more than to turn off the LRVT, but she couldn’t in good conscience do that. And with the speaking tube in her other hand, she had no way to make him stop.

Jack licked across her clit, freeing it from the protective skin cover.

She pushed her hips into his face and panted, desperately trying to even out her breathing so the Nimrod wouldn’t notice anything. She swallowed and lifted the tube. “Nimrod, this…this is…is Tower One—Oh Lord! “

Jack tapped her bundle of sensitive nerves with his tongue and she lost all concentration. He pulled back the tiniest bit and looked up from between her splayed thighs. “I believe they require coordinates.”

She clenched the speaking tube against her chest again. “Stop while I talk to them. I can’t focus while you do this.”

One brow rose, and his smile turned dark. “No,” he said and went back to licking her.”

Well, I’m sure you can imagine what happens next;). Dirigibles Are Forever is available at all ebook retailers.

What would you do with your hunk at Christmas?

Now, this is a Hunky Holiday Blog Hop and that means I need to add some pictures.

Happy Holidays and a wonderful start to the New Year!

Dirigibles Are Forever Release Day and Contest!

Today is the day! I am so very, very excited to celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever, my super-sexy Christmas novella set in an alternative Victorian London, filled with adventure, secrets and fun, and a dash of James Bond.

I love this story! It was a blast to write it and Holly and Jack have a special place in my heart. Both of them face difficult decisions and Holly is working hard to find her place in the world. It is not the Victorian London you are used to, but a London where Her Majesty Queen Victoria passed the Equal Rights Act and women can do whatever they want…including being Aether Traffic Controllers;). But Holly no longer believes it is enough. She wants more, but has not yet found what this more is.

TC_DirigiblesAreForever

Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.

Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.

When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.

But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?

Now on to the contests! Yes, plural:). I have two fun contests waiting for your participation.

To celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever I’m once again giving away fabulous Overman jewellery.

Tangled Redemption Release and Contests!

Woohoo! The day is finally here! Tangled Redemption, book 4 in my Celestial Surrender series, releases today.

I am very excited to share Sydney, Miguel and Jayden with you. It was exciting to write their story. The three of them took me on quite an adventure.

I hope you will enjoy it.

TangledRedemption_HiRes

Sydney Radnall is no man’s toy, despite fate’s attempt to make her just that. But kidnapping puts her at the mercy of a sadistic Feral commander. Being held prisoner is bad enough, but her Naema blood is powerful. In her current Vampiric company her presence is like ringing a dinner bell.

In an attempt to break her, the commander makes her the pet of two of his lieutenants. Miguel is one of the most dangerous men she has ever met, but she can’t stop the attraction blazing between them. Then there is Jayden, a Vampire who is as surprising as he is sexy. Two Vampires she should not be attracted to, should not want to surrender to, should not trust.

But things aren’t always what they seem. Secrets and lies shadow their connections, making it impossible to see clearly. What are the chances of her finding lifemates while surrounded by enemies? Making the wrong decision could not just shatter her heart. It could cost her life.

Now on to the fun part. I can’t have a release day without CONTESTS! This time I’m doing something a little different.

Sizzling Summer Nights Blog Hop

Welcome, welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by on your JustRomance.Me’s Sizzling Summer Nights Blog Hop.

I hope you are having oodles of fun checking out new authors and catching up with old favourites. There are tons of prizes and excitement to be had and the big grand prize is a 16GB Kindle Fire. Good luck!

I would like to introduce you to the Celestial Surrender universe, inhabited by Humans, Vampires and Naemas.

All my Vampire heroes are mouthwatering and delicious with that extra kick that make women’s knees wobble. Please be advised to stay far, far away from all Vampires with glaring red eyes as they are Ferals and most likely will drain you off your blood after playing with you for some time. Imagine a cat with a mouse.

Naemas have been likened to angels and demons by the humans in this galaxy. They have incredible powers, but to control these require an iron control. With a leader pushing them more and more into a regime of logic and efficiency love has become a rare gift. They used to wear their beautiful and sensual wings with pride, but now they have become an expression of emotions and have to be hidden away. Luckily this is a decree not everyone follows…

Humans may not be as powerful or as strong as Vampires or Naemas, but they have the strength of numbers and keen intelligence. Remember that they come in all shapes and attitudes. Just because they are human doesn’t mean they are weak.

I have just sent Tangled Redemption, book 4 in my Celestial Surrender series, to my critique partner. I cannot wait to find out what she has to say. She has been waiting for this book since I first mentioned the Spaniard in Tangled Shadows. Fingers crossed the book (and the Spaniard) live up to her expectations;). Tangled Redemption finishes the main story arch in the series and will bring almost everything to a conclusion (hey, I have to keep a few loose ends otherwise there are no more stories;).

If you could meet any Paranormal for a hot date, in my world or in any other, who would you like to get close to? Comment for the chance to win a $10 Ellora’s Cave gift card and have a blast on the rest of your trip. Happy Reading!
