#FiveOnFriday with Kryssie Fortune

Please welcome Kryssie Fortune back with us today! She’s got a sexy war hero to share with us. Break out the ice water!

Former soldiers make great heroes. They’ve fought for their country, they understand loyalty, and they come with solid muscle and faultless manners. That makes them perfect in my book. When Loose id requested submissions for three linked stories, I decided my heroes would be former soldiers who want to build a new life in the fictional North Carolina town of Westhorpe Ridge.  I fell in love with my heroes and needed to revisit Westhorpe Ridge.  Another stand-alone story beckoned.

Luke’s seen too many terrible things, and he’s suffered for it. His body’s scarred and his spirit’s crushed. Slowly, he’s clawing his way back to normal. It’s only natural that the other former military men in Westhorpe Ridge close ranks around him. The things PTSD sufferers go through can’t be underplayed.

The more I learned about Marines, SEALs, and Army Doctors, the more I respect them. Now I’ve added an Army trained mechanic to the list. While I’ve done all I can to bring Westhorpe Ridge to life, I need to thank my editor, Kierstin Cherry for “Americanizing” my very British expression. I hope my readers will love Westhopre Ridge and its heroes so much they’ll want to visit again and again.

Five Facts about my Luke Roberts, the hero of Submission, Secrets, and the Soldier

  1. Luke enlisted straight from high school so he could help fund his father’s medical care if the insurance didn’t cover it.
  2. Six years ago, while on a routine bullets and beans run, Luke got caught in the blast of IED. His injuries meant he was invalided out of the army. The blast left him with PTSD and flashbacks.
  3. A river of scars run down the left side of Luke’s body. He can barely look in the mirror, and he hates how people turn away when they see him.
  4. When Luke visits his old BDSM club, he meets Kathryn Johnson—an inexperienced sub—but once they are alone, he terrifies her when he has a flashback.
  5. Despite everything, circumstances force Kathryn and Luke into sharing an apartment—and she still craves the spanking she didn’t get at the BDSM club.

Luke Roberts, a former army mechanic, has a new sub. She’s shy and inexperienced, but willing. As he teaches her about sensation play, she fears he’ll really hurt her and screams her safewords at him. Her reaction causes Luke to have a flashback. Although he’s clawing his way back to normal, he suffers from PTSD. Determined to get well, he contacts a PTSD specialist in Westhorpe Ridge.

Kathryn Johnson has visited a BDSM club three times. When she hooks up with Luke Roberts, he unintentionally terrifies her. She swears off spankings and goes home to Westhorpe Ridge. The last person she expects to see there is Luke Roberts.

Circumstances force them to share an apartment. Can Luke protect her when danger threatens? Or is she just a temporary sub in residence?

Excerpt

Katherine parked outside the auto shop, lugged her suitcase from the trunk, and unlocked the door. The stairs were steep and seemingly endless. Once she’d manhandled her bag to the top, she leaned against the wall, panting and wishing she’d snatched something to eat earlier.

A noise from the back of the apartment had her spinning around. “Who’s there?”

Luke Roberts sauntered from the bathroom, fresh from the shower. He’d slicked back his hair, and a towel looped loosely around his waist. “Kathryn Johnson? What are you doing here? You still craving that spanking, maybe?”

She couldn’t take her eyes off his damp chest. And damn, that drop of water running down his pecs enthralled her. Even the red scars mottling the left side of his body seemed sexy, but she’d never seen anyone with so many. His legs were bare too, but the towel couldn’t hide his erection. Then he went and mentioned a spanking. Yes, please.

Her eyes glazed as she pictured herself naked, draped over his lap with her hands on the floor and her ass in the air. She imagined the sting of the first slap, and the way it would echo as his palm struck her bare flesh. Thoughts of him turning her ass red whetted her sensual appetite. God, after the confrontation with her mom, she really needed that spanking to settle her nerves.

She’d never known a few simple words and a sexy grin could make her pussy damp and turn her nipples into hard peaks. Her worries evaporated into a lust-fueled haze, but as she blinked back to normal, she stared at the naked man in her apartment. Her common sense told her to pull back, but she wanted to tug the towel from his waist, drop to her knees, and suck his cock. Even stopping herself from reaching out and stroking his massive chest took effort.

She felt her cheeks heat and knew she’d blushed. “That spanking? Oh! Not here, not now. Only… Damn it, I didn’t come to discuss my needs, but… No. What are you doing here?”

Her gaze dropped. The scars on his face paled to the wounds covering his left leg and the left side of his chest. Red and deep, they pitted every inch of flesh. Tiny patches of shiny skin, badly healed burns, shone between the scars.

Much as his injuries roused her sympathy, they added another layer to the sexy Dom teasing her about a spanking. His mental toughness must be amazing to have survived such severe injuries. No wonder he had flashbacks.

Kathryn yearned to reach out and run her hand down his scars and tell him they didn’t matter—but they clearly did to him. Unsure how to reassure him, she said nothing. Besides, her brain couldn’t move past that spanking he promised her. Maybe afterward, he’d take her to bed. Good grief, screwing a stranger? What am I thinking?

More about Kryssie Fortune

Kryssie is never seen without her kindle. She reads everything and anything she can get her hands on. When she discovered hot, sexy reads, she felt like she’d found her home. The only books she hates are the ones that end with a cliff hanger or have unhappy endings.

Kryssie tries to set her stories in places she’s explored. Hopefully, it adds color to her writing. Anything can spark a story idea. Sometimes she takes liberties though. The North Yorkshire town of Whitby is one of her favorite places. To keep the details of her imaginary town, Westhorpe Ridge consistent, she mentally shunted Whitby over the Atlantic and renamed it Westhorpe Ridge.

When not writing, Kryssie loves to walk on the beach of home town, Bridlington, or potter in her garden. Popping down to London to see her family is her favorite thing to do.

Kryssie currently has thirteen books on general release along with a boxed e-book of the first three Westhorpe Ridge stories. All her stories are M/ F or M/M/F. All are edited by publishing houses in either the UK or the USA. While her stories sizzle with sex, plot comes before bed. Life’s always an adventure going on in Kryssie’s world.

#FiveOnFriday with MJ Schiller

Please welcome MJ Schiller! She’s sharing five teasers with us today! You guys are going to love this!

I thought I’d do something a little different today. Writing is creating pictures with words. As much as I love doing that, I also enjoy creating pictures with…well, words and pictures. So today I wanted to share a few teasers from the first book in my chick lit DEVILISH DIVAS SERIES, TO HELL IN A COACH BAG!

Danielle (Dani), Samantha (Sam), Maxine (Max), and Alexis (Alex)- They are four lunch ladies on a wild cross-country trip. Will they find love? Or are they headed TO HELL IN A COACH BAG?

The first teaser is from the opening scene of TO HELL IN A COACH BAG. Dani and Samantha are on their way to a rock concert…

To Hell in a Coach Bag, teaser #1

The second teaser is from a love scene between Kyle and Sam. To give you an idea of what these two are like, in the third book, THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, which I’m editing now, Tucker says that something is insane, but follows it up with, but so are Sam and Kyle…

To Hell in a Coach Bag, teaser #2

The third teaser is Kyle and Samantha again, but this time they’re not getting along as well. Sam is having a hard time admitting that she’s interested in Kyle, and claims to be at the hockey game because she’s a big fan…

To Hell in a Coach Bag, teaser #3

Teaser number four is from an intense tennis game that Dani and Tucker engage in…

To Hell in a Coach Bag, teaser #4

And number five, well, it’s Sam and Kyle again.

To Hell in a Coach Bag, teaser #5

To Hell in a Coach Bag

To Hell in a Coach BagThe first in the DEVILISH DIVAS SERIES ~ “Funny, sexy, emotionally deep, imaginative, well-written, addictive. Enjoyed it very much!” -Amazon reviewer

Four Midwest lunch ladies on a cross-country road trip…

DANIELLE~When a twist of fate reunites the widowed Dani with the hot roadie she met at a concert, will she have the guts to open up to Tucker and perhaps start a new relationship?

SAMANTHA~Wild divorcee Sam discovers Kyle, the Canadian referee she met at the same concert, is in town for a Colorado Avalanche game. Although Kyle’s logged some serious ice time, Sam’s cold shoulder may put his heart in perma-freeze.

ALEXIS~What can save Alex’s marriage when her unemployed hubby’s driving her crazy?

MAXINE~When mid-life hormones make Max a sex-starved loon, can she ever feel close to her man again when he doesn’t put out?

Two women whose marriages are on the rocks~Will time apart from their spouses help them weather their matrimonial storms?

Two single women who equate love with pain~Will they open themselves up to new possibilities?

Four friends~Could their destination be Love? Or are they simply headed to Hell in a Coach bag?

Excerpt (from Tucker’s point of view) ~

Well, this is working up to be one hell of a morning. I stared at Sam’s door. First, Dani’s acting strangely. Then Kyle’s throwing a gasket. Why not go for the crazy trifecta?

I knocked on Sam’s door. “Sam? It’s me, Tucker. Can I come in?”

Maxine and Alex stood with their mouths wide open. I waited several seconds, but received no reply. Fed up, I went back into Dani’s room—luckily, the door hadn’t shut all the way. I knew there was an adjoining door to Sam’s room in there, so I went for it. I knocked on it. Probably thinking it was Dani, Sam opened right away.

“Oh, Tucker, I-I—”

Her eyes were red and puffy. She held a Kleenex in her hand and other used tissues were wadded on the bed and nightstand. Why was I suddenly starting to feel like I checked into the Hotel California instead of a resort in Colorado? You can check out, but you can never leave.

“Sam, what’s going on? Did Kyle do something?”

Her chin started to quiver, and then she wailed, “No!” She flung herself on my chest, sobbing. I patted her awkwardly on the back and wondered if I clicked my heels three times, could I just go home. On second thought, maybe this hotel was really located in Beverly Hills 90210, because the drama was epic.

“Okay, okay. If Kyle didn’t do anything, why are you mad at him?”

“I’m not mad at him, damn it.”

A throbbing began in my right temple. “You’re not? Well, it sure sounded like it.”

“That’s because I wanted him to go away,” she said, blubbering.

I knew I was going to regret asking the next question, but I guess I felt compelled. “But, why did you want him to go away, sweetheart?”

“Because,” she answered, as if the answer was obvious, “I think I might be falling in love with him.”

I stared at her, dumbfounded. “MAXINE! ALEX! GET IN HERE!” Obviously, I did not speak girl, because this conversation made absolutely no sense to me.

#FiveOnFriday with Ashley York

Please welcome Ashley York back with us again! She has a brand new book to tell us about! But first… A few things Ashley wishes she could do!

#FiveOnFriday If Only I Could…

1 – If only I could live anywhere, I would split my time between Ireland and Scotland except for family events, then I would want to be wherever they were.

2 – If only I could have anyone I wanted to read my books for audio, I would have Liam Neeson read them.

3 – If only I could change any one past event it would be a toss-up. Either I would have Natasha Richardson not go skiing that day that she hit her head and died, leaving her loving husband and family, or I would have Teddy Ebersol and his dad miss the plane back from the Red Sox game and Susan St. James’ little boy would have lived to grow into an amazing man and she would never have known such a heart wrenching loss.

4 – If only I could spend time talking with anyone who was alive the same time as me, I would spend it with  Stephen King, probably because I’m reading his book On Writing and he seems like a regular person.

5 – If only I could turn back time, I’d relive my wedding day and not been so nervous so I could relax and enjoy it! I was so young and shy and standing in front of all those people, I was a wreck!

Eyes of the SeerEyes of the Seer

In ancient Éire, men and women take to the legends for answers. Different-colored eyes are the mark of a Seer, it is said, and those who can see the future are in league with the devil. They cannot be suffered to live.

He wishes to prove himself…

Marcán of Clonascara bears the bloodline of Brian Boru, the legendary high king, and his prowess as a warrior has earned him great respect. But he was born with different-colored eyes, and there are some who would have him suffer a Seer’s fate. His fiercest adversary is Beibhinn, mother to Diarmuid, his close friend and king, and Astrid, the woman who holds his heart. If Astrid ever showed him any interest, he would fight Beibhinn and any army to wed her.

She is desperate to escape…

Astrid is sick of her mother’s belittling, but her brother is in no hurry to see her married, so she decides to see to her own match-making. The man she approaches quickly reveals his lack of honor, but her overbearing mother pushes her to wed him anyway. When Astrid discovers Marcán’s love for her, she realizes that what she wants has been in front of her all along. True happiness awaits them, but only if they can put a stop to her mother’s plans.

#FiveOnFriday A Lucky 7 Anthology

Wow! We have six authors visiting us today! You will be kicking yourself if you don’t check this out!

Inspiration

When did you first think about writing a book? Did you write it then, or put it off for years? 

For Love or Money–Margo Hoornstra

Like many who create stories, from grade school on, I figured someday to write a book, but when the time was right. After I earned a formal education, launched and sustained a successful and rewarding career, married, then raised a family and became financially independent. In other words, I did put it off for years.

To paraphrase the song lyric, life happened while I was making plans. Proof of the education is in a frame on the wall, the career came and went, the husband is still with me, but the children are grown, and our vast accumulation of wealth never materialized.

After reading so many authors who inspired me, Phyllis Whitney and Kathleen Woodiwiss among them, I wrote a novel of my own. Then five others in quick succession. It was book number six I finally got published. For Money Or Love, the book I wrote for the All In For Love anthology, is my thirteenth. A number which, as it turns out, is very lucky for me.

Margo’s website http://www.margohoornstra.com

Character

How do you construct your characters? Do you have a process or do they develop as you write? 

An Inn Decent Proposal—Sharon Buchbinder

I guess you could say there are certain professions that I love for characters, since I keep writing stories about chefs and hoteliers! My husband and I dine out about three times a week (which explains our inability to shed those last ten pounds!) and travel a good deal for business and pleasure. After sharing numerous dining and travel stories with a friend, she laughed and said, “You should write a book about this!” Genie, a Culinary Institute of America trained chef, and Jim, a Cornell Hotel School graduate, were the first characters born from these stories.

Sharon’s website http://www.sharonbuchbinder.com/

Story

Where did the idea for your story come from? 

A Ghost To Die For – Keta Diablo

I’ve always been intrigued by spirits or ghosts. In fact, a Ghost To Die For is not the first ghost story I’ve written. I have several novellas that feature a ghost or a person who has died and for some reason cannot cross over. In my latest western romance novella, Comes An Outlaw, the dead spirit of the widow’s husband can’t find peace while his wife and son are in grave danger. Luckily, the ghost’s brother shows up to help the beautiful widow and her 12 year old son.

In A Ghost To Die For, the ghost was murdered and knows his brother will meet the same fate if he doesn’t find a way to warn him. Drum roll….in walks Rooney, a woman who holds seances to commune with the dead. Rooney has never really believed in ghosts until one shows up in her hotel room begging for help. Did I mention Rooney has a heart as big as Texas and can’t ignore the ghost’s heartfelt pleas for help? Once she meets the devastatingly handsome brother, sparks fly! Somehow, while running from assassins and dodging bullets, love blossoms.

How about you? Do you believe in ghosts or spirits?

Keta Diablo’s blog: http://ketaskeep.blogspot.com

Where did the idea for your story come from? 

Raising Kane—Kat Henry Doran

The idea for Raising Kane came to me during a meeting of my local RWA chapter. In the spirit of offering members options for creating interesting, three-dimensional characters, the program planners regularly invited local professionals to talk about their careers, how they came to them, the joys and the pitfalls.

I was in a particular funk in those days, not exactly a writer’s block but struggling to create a character whose career goals and motivation would automatically put them in  conflict, internal and external, with another community professional while the romantic side of things progresses. I always like the reader to think, ‘these two characters will never, ever have a HEA because of their jobs, goals and motivations.

Enter our guest speaker: an investigative reporter for one of the local TV affiliates. In her late twenties, I guessed, intelligent and well spoken. this young woman did not once use ‘ya know’ when she spoke. She was fluent in local and state politics and could walk and chew gum at the same time. My kind of heroine. As she spoke, the wheels inside my head began turning and I knew I had a heroine. Then she made the mistake of opening up the floor for questions and discussion. I am, now, ashamed to say I took over the Q and A, bombarding her with questions about a reporter’s constitutional right to protect a source, being threatened with arrest, what to do when a source drops a bombshell with political repercussions in your lap. She was at all times gracious and enthusiastic.

Kat’s blog http://wildwomenauthorsx2.blogspot.com/

Writing

Do you suffer from writer’s block? How do you get unstuck, or how do you keep from getting stuck? 

Perfect Odds – LaShanta Charles

I tend to have writer’s block on a pretty regular basis. It’s not that my mind isn’t swirling with ideas, voices, plots, and all around awesomeness (LOL), it’s that I’m a procrastinator at heart and my attention jumps from subject to subject before I can sit down and actually make myself write. When I get stuck, I tend to read paranormal or sci-fi romance. That’s my favorite genre and when I read it, I tend to want to write a good scene.

LaShanta’s Blog: http://randomlymeandyou.blogspot.com/

Future / Readers

What is it about this book that you think readers will love?

Take a Chance on Me—M.J. Schiller

I had so much fun with this book! The story flowed out of me unlike any other story I’ve written thus far. Romantic suspense has both the hot chemistry between hero and heroine, plus the thrill of danger. You’ll find both in TAKE A CHANCE ON ME, and you’ll also find humor. I like to inject humor into almost everything. It colors the characters and makes them seem more alive. I hope the reader will connect with the relationships between the characters and recognize a bit of themselves, or someone they know, in them.

#FiveOnFriday with Adriana Kraft

Please welcome Adriana Kraft! I’m so excited about having this duo with us today. How fun to work with your spouse!

Five things about A Woman for Zachary #MFRWAuthor #Polyamory

A Woman for Zachary: What’s important? My husband and I write erotic romance together under our pen name, Adriana Kraft. Here’s a peek at what drives our stories:

Thing 1: PLEASURE.

Fiction writers fall under the occupational category of “Arts and Entertainment.” Naturally, we write to entertain – to deliver pleasure to our readers. This means whatever challenges we throw at our characters, we also want them to have fun. We write erotic romance to deliver a special category of fun – we hope our characters (and our readers) enjoy a range of sexual romps on the page that feed their fantasies.

Thing 2: AGE

We don’t think “fun” (sexual or otherwise) has any built-in age limit, so we often write characters well past their sleek and sassy twenties. Yes, the star of our Meghan’s Playhouse series has just turned twenty-one, but Josie is in her early forties, and Zach, with his distinguished balding head, is a handsome virile fifty-two. More power to them! We think they won’t disappoint.

Thing 3: AUTHENTICITY

We’ll let Josie answer this one. In a recent interview, she was asked what she would change about herself. Here’s her answer: “That question is more philosophical than you might intend. I like who I am, what I value, and how I live. I’m always striving to improve—to be more aware, more compassionate, more balanced. I hope that never changes.”

Thing 4: POLYAMORY

Polyamory means “many loves.” In A Woman for Zachary, it’s the experience of loving more than one person at the same time. Though the threesome in this story isn’t a “forever” combination, the love they share is real and palpable. It is because Meg stays open to loving both Josie and Zach that she’s able to see into them deeply and empowered to help them find each other.

Thing 5: COMMITMENT

All three of these characters are profoundly committed to what they care about. Meg, with a lifetime ahead of her, is committed to her career and knows she will move on. At mid-life, Josie and Zach have already lost precious time by not claiming their desires sooner. Can they commit when Meg is no longer present as their catalyst?

It’s New York! Broadway beckons, but Meg has more fun keeping an erotic triangle going with her current flame, Zach Cullen, and her drama coach, Josie Patrice.

Zachary Cullen has ignored Josette Patrice’s overtures for years, but she agrees to take on his latest protégé-slash-arm-candy Meghan Keenan in her off-Broadway workshop theater. Though the girl has incredible talent, Josie would stake her reputation on that little thing being a switch-hitter, like herself, and she doesn’t want Zach to be duped. Josie sets out to seduce Meg and expose her for what she is, but all bets are off when Meg turns the tables on Josie to hook her up with Zach.

EXCERPT

“Your latest protégé does show promise, Zach.” Josette Patrice focused on the group of actors rehearsing onstage and avoided looking at Zachary Cullen as they stood shoulder to shoulder in the back of the small, semi-darkened playhouse.

“Hmm.”

Josie smiled. Was he pondering Meghan Keenan’s thespian talents, or her bedroom talents? Josie was certain the petite twenty-one-year-old would excel in both venues.

Not for the first time, Josie wondered why the highly successful fifty-something entrepreneur invested so much time and money trying to find the next Broadway star. Was it his ego, his desire to take young struggling actresses and help them make their way to New York City—specifically, to her?  Or was it the side benefit of sex with gorgeous young women that kept Zach on the lookout for talent as he traveled from one business interest to the next? Meghan was the third young woman he’d brought her over the past ten years.

“She seems more wooden, less natural than when I first saw her in that little community playhouse back in Wisconsin,” Zach said, breaking the silence.

Lost in her own thoughts, Josie startled at the gravelly sound of Zach’s deep voice. It was that slow, strong drawl that had appealed to her since the first time they’d met. That, and his burning eyes that seemed capable of peering into her soul.

Josie wet her lips watching the stage lights bounce off the girl’s auburn hair, as if setting her afire. Had Meg been caught up in Zach’s vision for her, or in his nearly overwhelming air of masculinity? She had to admit his broad shoulders and tapered hips triggered her own lusty imagination. Damn. She hated the fact that she had difficulty ignoring his manliness, and he never even looked at her as a woman. Apparently, he only saw her as a conduit for helping his protégés advance their careers.

Josie squared her shoulders. At forty-three, she was hardly over the hill. She’d had her share of lovers. Given Zach’s lack of interest, she’d flaunted her female lovers before him. She felt her nipples pebble—maybe that had been a mistake. Zachary Cullen was not a man to be toyed with.
