Sensuous Promos Book Spotlight ~ Redeemed By You - Vranthian Vampires Book 3 by K.A. M'Lady


Redeemed By You - Vranthian Vampires Book 3
K.A. M'Lady
 
 
In Vranthia, The Wasting has claimed the lives of women, children, and warriors alike; many have fallen to this great plague. No one is safe from its darkness. Recklessness and subterfuge walk hand and hand amongst the Elders, as they seek a means to rule. With ferocity they intend to control the meek, with gluttony they will bleed the docile; destroying all who stand in their way.
 
But The Wasting can no longer be contained. What began as a dark elixir, stoked in the veins of hatred and revenge, from an enemy long thought dead, has spread beyond the great halls of the Vranthian Kingdom. And no one is certain when or where its darkness will end. Is the mystery and magic of the trion enough to save this great nation?
 
Kantella Balacjek is a lot of things, but a traitor to his people he is not. He needs to find the source of the darkness to prove his innocence, but the evidence against him grows almost daily. Lies told and enemies made have a way of shielding the truth from the light, even when the truth rages in the blood. Death and her harbinger await him. Will he succumb, or will The Wasting consume them all?
 
The Darengy grave-warriors have always walked in the shadows. But even they have their outcasts, the creatures that they fear. Onya knows what it is to be different, to be alone with the dying. The shadows and darkness hold their whispers and their pleas. Only she has the power to choose who crosses over. Enslaved by the resistance, she has learned the capacity for evil. Does her blood hold the power to seal the fate of many nations? Does she the courage to change that fate?
 
Mercenary, loner, wanderer – Traegar is one of the first among the Elders. He is a maker and destroyer of life. Time has jaded him. His people’s level of debauchery and power disgusts him. When the Great Wars ended he chose to walk away and hunt what he despises and loves the most; burying the pieces within him instead. Now his kindred are dying in droves. The Elders have grown unruly, and unstable in their bid for domination. In his dreams the whispers of the ancients fire his blood with the heat of the mating.
 
Will finding his trion redeem his faith in his people? Will their belief in each other be enough to set them all free? 
 
Strong are the Binds of Love, Faith and Magic.

Sensuous Promos Author Interview of J.J. DiBenedetto


Hello everyone, please welcome J.J. DiBenedetto to Sensuous Promos today as he shares with us a little bit about themselves and his work.
J.J., thank you for joining us today. I know the readers are eager to get to know you , so let’s get started.
Do you have any news you’d like to share with us?
Well, I’ve just released the sixth book in my Dream Series, DREAM FAMILY, and also I’ve had a short story set in the series recorded for audiobook by Doctor Who star Nicola Bryant, so that’s pretty cool. 
I’m also having the fourth novel, DREAM FAMILY, recorded for audiobook right now (the first three books are already out on audiobook, and they’re fantastic!)

What inspired you to write your first book?
I originally wrote the first draft of what would eventually be DREAM STUDENT in 1998 or so.  I had two ideas that came together – the concept of seeing other people’s dreams; and trying to come up with a reason why the protagonist in a story would try to solve a crime herself instead of going to the police like any sane person would do.  And the answer was staring me in the face: if you only saw the crimes in dreams that you visited, you couldn’t go to the police.  What could you say?  Especially because it would be so difficult to believe for yourself that it was real.  But even once you did believe it, the only evidence would be in your dreams – how could you take that to the police?  You’d have to try and find more concrete proof yourself. 
So I write a first draft, and it wasn’t that great, but at least I finished it.  And then it sat there for over a decade, until early last year when a friend of mine, Jennifer Povey, sold her first novel to Musa Publishing.  That made me think: if she can do it, why can’t I?  So I dusted off that old draft, rewrote it from the beginning, and I changed it from third-person to first-person.  That made all the difference.  I was able to really find Sara’s voice, and that made writing the book easy.  And it made the book worlds better.

Do you have a specific writing style? In other words, are you a plotter or a pantser?
I’m somewhere in between the two.  I have a general idea of where my books are going, and a few specific scenes that I know will happen, and usually a good sense of how the ending will work.  But I don’t write up a detailed outline; I let things go wherever they go, and I’ve been very surprised at times with what actually happened. 
For example, the fourth book in my series, DREAM FAMILY, was originally supposed to be about my heroine, Sara, encountering someone else who shared her ability to step into other people’s dreams, and who was using it for selfish, evil ends.  And I decided that, as a minor obstacle somewhere in the story, Sara would find herself arrested and spending a night in jail.  I imagined it as a small thing, and maybe even something that would be humorous.  But when I started writing that scene, it became very dark, almost immediately.  As the short scene grew to over 10,000 words and became a horrific experience for Sara, I realized that here was the right story for this book.  It was the story of Sara experiencing something terrifying that she can’t handle and that “breaks” her, and how (or if) she recovers from it. 

How did you come up with the titles to your book(s)?
With great difficulty, at least for the first book!  My original working title was “Dreamchaser” (or “Dreamchasers”, sometimes), but I was never very happy with it.  At some point, I hit on DREAM STUDENT, and I don’t even remember the thought process that led to it.  But once I had that, the rest of the titles were easy.  Sara goes to medical school in the second book, so DREAM DOCTOR was an obvious title.  In the third book, we meet Sara’s daughter, who can also visit other people’s dreams, and that title, DREAM CHILD, was equally obvious.

How much of your book(s) have a bit of you in the characters?
They all do – how can they not?  The first two books are set at a (very) thinly veiled version of the college I actually attended, so my personal experiences are all through them.  Brian, Sara’s boyfriend (and later husband) is basically the man that I aspire to be. 
But I’ve also seen my beliefs come out more and more as the series progresses.  One theme that’s become more prominent as the books go on is the danger of power and the responsibility to use it carefully and respectfully.  Sara struggles with that, and, especially with the villain in the fifth book, WAKING DREAM, we see what happens when power is abused. 

What book would we find you reading right now?
I just yesterday finished “Hyperbole and a Half” by Allie Brosh.  It’s taken from her web series of picture/photo stories, and it’s hands-down the funniest thing I’ve ever read.  It’s also very brave, because she delves into her own struggles with depression and she’s brutally honest about that.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I’m a big fan of Rainbow Rowell.  She’s a fantastic writer.  She’s almost too honest, in a way – she doesn’t shrink from showing her characters at their most neurotic and self-defeating.  But they’re also very relatable, and her prose is gorgeous.  So I’d highly recommend her.

What are you currently working on? Can you give us a sneak peek?
I’m working on the seventh book in the Dream Series.  Sara and her family have moved to a small town in upstate New York, and they’re settling in as best they can.  Sara’s dealing with jealousy among her co-workers towards her, and discontent from her kids, who didn’t want to move.  And she’s also going to have to cope with a natural disaster that will test the limits of both her dreaming talent and her medical skills before it’s passed.

Do you see writing as a career? Do you write full time? Or in addition to another job?
I’ve got a day job (which I’m actually very happy in).  I write at night and in my spare time.  I would LOVE to be able to make my living as an author, and, without bragging, I think my books are good enough that it ought to be possible.  But I know what the odds are, too.  All I can do is keep writing, keep promoting, and hope to break through to a larger audience and bigger success.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Mark Helprin.  His prose is just breathtakingly beautiful, and “Winter’s Tale” is simply the best book I have ever read, without question.  He combines romance, humor, philosophy, history, good and evil, and a lot more into one amazing book. 
It’s been filmed as a movie with Colin Farrell and Russell Crowe, and I have to go see it, even though I’m pretty sure they’ve made a complete mess of it and I know I’m going to be crushingly disappointed.

Do you have a cover artist you’ve worked with that you’d like to give props to?
My cover artist is Ami Low.  She’s a graphic designer and artist who lives in Northern Virginia.  She was the head graphic designer at the company I work at, until she left when she had a child.  But she kept working freelance, and I got in touch with her when I was ready to publish my first book.  I worked closely with her – I gave her sketches of what I was envisioning (they were really dreadful!) and she turned them into art.  So I was – and am – thrilled with her work.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t have a website yet, or else I’d refer you to it!

What was the hardest part of writing your book(s)?
The most difficult time I had was in writing the jail scenes and the immediate aftermath in DREAM FAMILY.  I actually lost sleep over the hell I was putting Sara through.  I know that sounds crazy, but after writing three books about her, she felt very real to me, and she went through a terrible ordeal in those chapters in DREAM FAMILY.  I felt very guilty about it!

Excerpt from DREAM REUNION 
(note: the book is set in October of 2001 – that will explain a couple of things…)


I open my eyes to find myself holding Brian tightly, my lips just an inch from his right ear.  I hear myself whispering to him, “Brian, I’m safe.  We’re all safe.  It was only a dream.”  I wonder how long I’ve been doing that? 
I remember his whole dream, and I have to hold back my own tears.  I don’t even care about what happened to me – all I’m worried about is how much it upset my husband.  This is the first time I’ve seen him dream since it happened, but I’d bet he’s been dreaming about something like that every night.
I’ve been seeing very similar dreams from far too many people – sometimes just one in a night, sometimes several one after the other.  I don’t do anything; I’m sure the reason I’m seeing them is that my subconscious thinks that all those people deserve a witness to their pain.  Someone should be there with them, even if it’s only to silently acknowledge their fears.  Or, much worse, the open wounds in their hearts and the empty holes in their lives. 
That’s what I told both Lizzie and my mother.  I didn’t know what else to say – I still don’t.  I’m grateful that at least Steffy – as far as I know – hasn’t been having these particular dreams, too.  Thank Heaven for small favors, I guess.
Brian begins to stir awake, and he immediately pulls away from me.  I can feel the tension in his every muscle as he jerks himself out of my grasp and then turns around.  He looks at me but for a moment he doesn’t see me – I know he’s still seeing the dream.  “Sara?  How did you get away?  I saw…”
Now he sees me properly, and realization dawns.  He reaches out, pulls me to him, clutches me in a strangling hug.  I can’t breathe, but he needs to feel me this close and I let him do it.  It takes him a while to satisfy himself that I’m here and safe, and not in the burning wreckage of the hospital.  He finally lets me go, but he’s clearly still shaken by the dream. 
It’s nearly six o’clock, so there’s no point trying get any more sleep.  Instead, I lead him into the bathroom, and run the cold water.  “Here,” I say, handing him a washcloth.  He takes it, wets it and wipes his face.  “That’s better, isn’t it?”  He doesn’t respond, and while I can feel him loosening up a little, he’s still very tense.  “The Eagles are playing today, aren’t they?  I’ll sit and watch with you, how about that?”  That earns me a questioning look – me, volunteering to watch football?  It also produces another, very slight, relaxation of his back muscles.  But not enough.
Maybe breakfast will help, so I lead him out of the bathroom, back through the bedroom, and, after a quick look to make sure Matty is still asleep, out into the hallway.  As we pass by Grace’s room, I catch a glimpse of her newest poster, and that gives me an idea.  We walk down the stairs and I ask him, “You want me to tell you a secret?”
Now he looks at me more curiously; I’ve really got his attention.  “I thought you didn’t keep secrets from me.”  There’s almost a playful hint in his voice; he’s trying. 
The kids are already downstairs, and I’ve got their attention, too, especially Lizzie and Grace.  “This goes way back, when I was Grace’s age – maybe a year older.  I guess I was thirteen.”  They’re all staring at me intently now, and I realize I’ve built this up too much already.  “It’s nothing earthshaking.  Just a little embarrassing.  Grace’s poster made me think of it.”
“Tell us, Mommy!”  Lizzie is quite insistent and Brian’s very nearly smiling now
“Well, when I was thirteen, I – I kind of had a crush.”
Grace rolls her eyes.  Her thoughts might as well be written on her face: I don’t have a silly crush on Orlando Bloom!  I just think he’s handsome and a good actor, that’s all.  It’s perfectly normal. That’s what I told myself, too. 
Brian asks, “On whom?”  He’s definitely smiling now, and fighting to keep laughter out of his voice.  It’s worth a little embarrassment to lift his mood.
I say it quickly, as though I’m tearing a band-aid off.  “Rick Springfield.”  Before Brian can respond, I say, “And don’t judge!  I was thirteen!”
“’Jessie’s Girl?’  That Rick Springfield?  Seriously?”
“I said, don’t judge!  And anyway, he wasn’t just a singer!  He was Dr. Noah Drake on ‘General Hospital.’  I was only interested because of that.”  And that’s what I told myself as I stared up at his poster on my wall every night for six months, too.
Brian buries his face in his hands and mutters something that might be “I bet.  That and the leather pants.”

Sensuous Interview of Samara King




Hello everyone, please welcome Samara King to Sensuous Promos today as she shares with us a little bit about themselves and their work. 




Samara, thank you for joining us today. I know the readers are eager to get to know you , so let’s get started.

When and why did you begin writing? I started writing when I was in grade school and have always shared a passion for romance fiction. One day, I decided to try my own.


At what point did you first consider yourself a writer?  I believe the moment I saw my first book in paperback. I felt like I was on a high and in tears. I remember that moment as one of the most validating moments, but right next to that is hearing from readers. It's an honor to have your words, stories and characters enjoyed.


Do you have a specific writing style? In other words, are you a plotter or a pantser?  I'm a mix, my characters sometimes come to me whole and other times in pieces, which then requires a bit of prodding or plotting. I usually start with an idea where the story is going.


How did you come up with the titles to your book(s)? Sometimes the title comes from dialogue between the main characters, music, etc.


Is there a message in your book(s) that you want readers to grasp? Most of my characters are flawed and with that they come with baggage but always overcome. I think the act of overcoming is an important one to remember and embrace throughout life.

What are you currently working on?  I'm currently working on several novellas, and a novel for my upcoming series, Rogue Hearts, entitled Heat. The series stars a family of thieves, semi-reformed, capturing hearts and other things along the path to love.


Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? I love several, but one thing that strikes me about each is their unique voices and the power in their words and characterization. 


Have you learned anything from writing your book(s)? If so, what was it?  Each book has it's own flavor and timeframe. I've learned to trust the process.


Do you have any advice to offer other writers? Believe in your craft no matter, continue to soak up knowledge.



Do you have anything else youd like to add? Readers may find me at: http://samaraking.com and my blog, CharactersBehavingBadly.com.

Sensuous Promos Book Spotlight: The Wranglers' New Chef by Marla Monroe



by Marla Monroe

Soon to be homeless, Billy Jean Simmons swallows her fear of horses to accept a position as chef at a guest ranch in Montana. Laramie and Laredo Marshall don’t know what hit them when they get a taste of her cooking. What’s an amazing chef like her doing out in the wilds of Montana?

While Laredo believes they should be concentrating on getting the ranch up and running instead of flirting, his brother is convinced they can do both. It doesn’t take long for Laredo to climb onboard with his brother to woo Billy Jean into their arms. But there’s something going on with their sensuous chef. She’s got a secret and they’re determined to coax it out of her.

A little PTSD and a world of misunderstanding lands the brothers in a pot of boiling water where Billy Jean is concerned. It might take two to tango, but three can work things out if they will just take the time to listen.

ADULT EXCERPT
 
“I’ll understand if I’m too much trouble to fool with. I mean, you’re all about horses and everything,” she began.
“Stop it,” Laredo said with a low growl. “You’re ours and we care about you. We aren’t going to change our minds because you’re afraid of horses, Billy.”
As if to prove his point, he brushed his lips across hers in a soft kiss before applying more pressure and pulling her out of Laramie’s arms to roll onto his chest. Her quick squeal was swallowed by him as he took advantage of her open mouth to claim it with his tongue and teeth. Billy moaned as he twined them together, exploring the hot recesses of her open mouth.
When he finally pulled back, she was a breathless mess of nerves with a pussy that was on fire with need. She prayed he couldn’t feel her juices as they slid across her inner thighs. She suddenly became aware of his rigid cock pressing against her inner thigh. He felt huge there. When she started to move off of him, he groaned and pressed tighter against her.
“Fuck! Don’t move, darling. You feel so damn good. Let me catch my breath first.” His raspy voice would have been amusing if she hadn’t known how uncomfortable he had to be.
“I’m sorry,” she whispered.
“Don’t be. I wouldn’t miss having you pressed tight against me for the world. I want you so badly, I can taste you on my tongue.”
“You do?” she all but squeaked out.
“Can’t you tell? I’m so hard I could break rocks on a chain gang. Just being near you has that effect on both of us, Billy. You’re sexy as hell,” Laredo said with a smile.
She smiled back, tentatively at first, then with more feeling. Knowing that they really did still want her helped cement her decision in her mind. She wanted them, too. The risk was worth the chance to be with them.
Grinning down at him, Billy wiggled her hips, causing her pelvis and thighs to rub over his groin and subsequently, his hard-as-steel dick. To her surprise, Laredo rolled them over until she was beneath him. Poor Laramie had to scoot off the edge of the bed to keep from being smashed.
“Hey! Warn a guy next time.” He chuckled and walked around the end of the bed to climb in on the other side.
Laredo ignored his brother, nipping at her chin instead. He slowly made his way around to her ear where he sucked on her earlobe before licking and kissing his way down her neck. When he backed down her body to expose her breasts, Billy had the sudden urge to cover herself, but didn’t get a chance when the man latched on to one of her nipples. Before she could get used to him sucking on the distended nub, Laramie took the other one in his mouth and drew on it even harder.
A moan escaped from her mouth as she buried her hands in their hair, holding them to her. It felt so good. She’d never imagined that having two men make love to her would be so appealing until she’d met them. Right that moment, nothing could have convinced her to push them away. It was amazing. Each draw of their mouths on her sensitive peak sent a sharp tug on her clit until she was close to begging them to take care of the ache building in her cunt.
Evidently Laramie got the point when his hand slipped between them and a callused finger slowly pushed between her thighs to tease her pussy lips. He ran it up and down the slit without actually entering her. To her embarrassment, she began rocking her pelvis in an attempt to push his finger inside of her. She ached to be filled, and he was teasing her mercilessly.
“Laramie. Please,” she panted.
He chuckled against her breast. Laredo released her nipple with a soft pop and grinned down at her.
“What is he doing, precious?”
“Oh, God. He’s driving me crazy. Make him stop, Laredo. Please make him stop!” She nearly screamed as Laramie rubbed lightly over her clit before slipping back down to torture her slit.
Laredo looked down her body, his grin growing even wider. “Wouldn’t you like to taste her sweet nectar, brother? She was the best-tasting peach, all spicy and tangy.”
Laramie moaned against her breast then released her turgid nipple to kiss his way down her belly until he hovered just above where his finger still tormented her. She glared down at him until Laredo clamped a finger on her nipple and pinched it, jerking her attention to him instead.
“I can’t wait to see your eyes when you come, darling. I want to watch you come apart as my brother eats your delicious pussy. Then he’s going to fuck that sweet cunt while I find out how it feels to have that hot mouth around my cock,” he said, his voice deep and raspy.
Billy Jean nearly came just from his words. Never had anyone talked to her like that. It was dirty and it was hot all at the same time. She stared into Laredo’s eyes as he lowered his head and licked across her nipple. At the same time, Laramie lowered his head to her pussy and blew across her wet lips. Goose bumps popped up on her skin as she shivered in reaction. They were going to kill her.

Sensuous Promos Book Spotlight: Texas Heat by Denysé Bridger


Texas Heat by Denysé Bridger 

Chase Jordan is a man with half his life missing since his return from the war in Iraq. He arrives back in Texas, a drifter looking for home. When he arrives at the Double D ranch, the owners know him, even if he can’t remember them. Cheyenne’s been infatuated with Chase since her high school days, but Deke MacKenzie’s already made it clear to Chase that his kid sister is off limits

ARe Romance eBooks:

Excerpt:

“Miss MacKenzie,” he said.
She walked around the truck and looked at him.
The speculative look in her eyes kissed the back of his neck with a tingle of uncertainty. He was always edgy around her, like something was close but still eluding him. He didn’t like it.
“It’s Cheyenne, Chase,” she reminded him.
He nodded. They’d done this dance a time or two before. There was something too familiar about her, but he couldn’t pin it down. The now customary flare of annoyance woke inside him. Half his damn past was missing since he’d come home from Iraq. Maybe he’d known her once, though he couldn’t imagine forgetting someone like her. “Something I can do for you, ma’am?”
She laughed and dropped the tailgate on the pickup, bending over with what he knew was deliberate intent. There was no denying the appeal of her well-shaped ass in the tight jeans, and his cock twitched in response. She turned, tossed him a beer, and sat on the tailgate looking at him while she took a swig of her own drink.
Chase opened the can of beer and drank half of it. He strolled to the truck, braced his arm casually on the side as he stared at her. “You haven’t answered my question, Cheyenne.”
She twisted around until she faced him, and cradled the cooler between her breasts. Her nipples were clearly outlined and pushing against the thin cotton of her tank-top.
He met her candid stare and grinned at the challenge in her expression.
“Why don’t you like people, Chase?”
“I like people just fine, ma’am,” he said. “I just prefer my own company to that of idiots.”
She considered his reply then shrugged. “Do you consider me an idiot, Chase?”
He laughed. “No, ma’am.”
“Good answer,” she said.
“I have work to do, Cheyenne.” He finished his beer and tossed the can into the ice-filled hamper containing the rest of the six-pack she’d brought with her.
“You work for me, too, Chase,” she reminded him softly.
He took a long look at her, his appraisal meant to be offensive and blatant.
At only a little over five feet tall, Chey was stacked and curvy in all the right places. Her long auburn hair was tied back in a simple ponytail, and she wore no makeup.
He dropped his gaze to her breasts, fingertips tingling as he contemplated what her skin would feel like, and taste like if he leaned in and took one of her ripe nipples into his mouth. She slid a little bit closer to him and he shook off the heat that was building inside him. “Thanks for the beer, ma’am. I’ll be getting back to my work now.”
He would have left but she grabbed his arm and he was too aware of the pebbled point of her nipple brushing against his bicep.
“I want―”
He put a finger over her lips, silencing her as he shook his head. “Baby, I know what you want, but I’m not playing that game.”
She slid her hand along the front of his jeans, stopping to squeeze hard and his cock reacted instantly and pushed against the heavy denim.
“I want you to fuck me, Chase,” she whispered, her gaze locked with his, the glint in her dark eyes a clear dare. “I think you want it, too.”
He smiled and let the predator in his nature emerge in his expression. More than one woman had backed off when his smile went dark and warning.
Cheyenne’s eyes widened, but she didn’t back down. Her chest rose and fell as her breaths quickened with obvious excitement.
“You don’t know what you’re asking for, Cheyenne,” he told her. “I don’t play nice.”
“Maybe I don’t want nice?” she said, uncertainty in her words.
He needed to push her away while he still had some control over the situation. He took the bottle she’d been clutching and tossed it aside, grabbed her ponytail and eased her head back, exposing the graceful curve of her neck. Leaning in, he licked the smooth hollow at the base of her throat, smiling against her skin when the tang of sweetness and sweat touched his tongue. “You have no idea how tempting you are, Cheyenne, but I like my job here, so you have to go.”
She moved her head a bit, what her restricted freedom would allow. When she laughed, the whisper of her breath fanned across his skin. “I’m not going anywhere, Chase.”
“Yes, honey,” he paused, smiled, and finished, “you are.” He let go of her and stepped back, adjusting his jeans as he fought down his arousal. “I have work to do, and fucking you isn’t part of my job.”
