Summer Lover by Anna Lund

I’m thrilled to show off the cover for my May 18th release from Blushing Books! Isn’t it gorgeous? Summer Lover is a reunion romance, don’t you just love those?

Summer Lover

Blurb:

Ethan and Hayley were summer lovers until the year Ethan didn’t come back to the lake. Now, after a health scare, the workaholic CEO has returned for the weekend, under orders to relax. He thought the trip was going to be a waste of time until he sees Hayley again. He soon realizes she’s what’s been missing from his life.

Hayley never stopped loving Ethan. They pick up where they left off, kissing, bantering and enjoying fun spankings that lead to hot sex. But he’s a city boy and she’d never leave her cottage by the lake. Ethan has a plan that might give them both what they want – or break them up forever.

Mark your calendar for May 18th!

Cover Reveal-Mastering Hanna by Anna Lund – by Natasha Moore

MasteringHanna

Isn’t it great? Mastering Hanna, a sci-fi erotic romance will be released under my Anna Lund pen name. I’m excited to be working with Blushing Books and am working on what I hope will be book #2 in a new series.

Blurb – Mastering Hanna
___________________________________________________________________

When the women of Vanya are captured by slave traders, Hanna does not hesitate in her duty to protect her princess. Despite fighting for her freedom, she is overwhelmed and suddenly finds herself on a spaceship—chained, helpless, hurtling through space, fated to become sex slave to the King of Noria.

But fate is thwarted by her sexy, dominant captor Jarrod, an escapee from the tranium mines, mercenary for hire. His job—to see that the king gets his slave. But he is as much a captive to Hanna as she to him. The pull of desire—desire to both rescue and enslave her—is as powerful as the chains that bind Hanna.

Although this is a forbidden passion, Jarrod is helpless to resist the charms of this beautiful, willful slave and shows her the erotic ways of master and slave, pain and pleasure, spankings and strict obedience. Hanna vows to make the best of her new situation, and learns her slave lessons well. When she falls for Jarrod, she knows that no other master will do. Where ever he goes in the universe, she knows she must follow.

Will Hanna and Jarrod’s conflicting responsibilities keep them apart forever, or will their passion overcome any obstacle the universe puts in their path to happiness?

Mastering Hanna will be released October 31st!

TIMES CHANGES & SO DO COVERS + GIVEAWAY! -TALINA PERKINS

It’s inevitable, really. With time things change. From Texas styled 90’s hair-dos to fashion and, of course, what we find visibly attractive in a book cover. When I published the first book in my military romance series, Sexy Siesta, I had one vision. Over the course of the last year and a half though, the world I set for the characters has grown into something I wish I had foreseen, yet all the same am very excited about. After talking with my editor about the changes and discussing the need for a grittier and ‘dirtier’ tone that would convey the story through the cover, I set to work creating a new look for the series. And if you’ve read the books, you know that there’s a lot of hot sex and just as much action and adventure!

Even though change is sometimes hard to embrace, that is exactly what I did with you, my lovely readers, in mind. So without further ado, here are the new covers to the Sexy Siesta series!

Cover Reveal – Her Royal Mistake – Natasha Moore

No, it’s not erotic romance, but you know I don’t write sweet, sex-behind-closed-doors kinds of romance. So if you enjoy sexy contemporary romance, I hope you’ll want to give my Her Royal Romance series a try. Today I’m thrilled to reveal the cover of the upcoming book #3 in the series, Her Royal Mistake. The talented Lacey Savage has done it again! I love it!

HerRoyalMistake_createspace

Here’s a blurb for Her Royal Mistake:

At the wedding of her cousin to her former fiancé, Princess Birgitte, the Ice Princess, hooks up with one of the groom’s cousins, a handsome hot-blooded olive farmer, so unlike any man she’s been with before. They share a night of incredible sex, but she can’t handle the unexpected emotions that come along with it. So Birgitte does what she does best, runs and hides from her mistakes. But soon, she can’t run or hide from the fact that she’s pregnant.

Leonardo Gullotti’s mother may be sister to the king, but his life revolves around the family’s olive business. He’s haunted by the lovely Birgitte, but he’s not impressed with anyone who would run away from their problems. He’s always been a stand and deal with it kind of guy. So when Birgitte comes to him with her news, he proposes on the spot, even though he knows marrying a future queen means he will have to leave the land he loves.

Birgitte knows her baby needs to be legitimate, but will only agree to a marriage of convenience. She doesn’t want any messy emotions involved. But living with Nardo, and not loving him, might be the biggest mistake of all.

Her Royal Mistake is a stand-alone novel and can be read on its own. But if you haven’t already, and you’d like to catch up on the couple who have already fallen in love in the lands of Mezzano and Stagatland, these are the previous stories in the series.

Her Royal Masquerade – book #1 – novel

Her Royal Bodyguard– book #2 – novel

Her Royal Rendezvous – book # 2.5 – short story

New Covers for Bound Again Series

One of the great things about self-publishing, is that authors can now try new things. And with the case of Bound to Surrender and Bound to Submit, I decided to go with new covers. I loved the old ones, with the sexy bound women, but I wondered…how about some man-chest? 🙂

What the heck. I can do that. I can switch up the covers and see what readers think. Who doesn’t like some sexy man-chest? So today I’m revealing the new covers for Bound to Submit (Bound Again book #1) and Bound to Surrender (Bound Again book #2) The change should be live in the next few days, but the books are, of course, available now.

BoundToSubmit2_2560x1600_amazon

Mason’s dark good looks and dominating personality stirred up Kelly’s forbidden fantasies, frightening her so much that she broke up with him. When she agrees to help out at the community haunted house, she never expects to be tied to a bed, playing damsel in distress to Mason’s masked, whip-wielding villain.

Mason knows Kelly is fighting her sexual needs and he hopes that a few hours of playing out her fantasies with him will prove it to her. Bound and under his control, she can’t run away from him this time.

BoundToSurrender2_2560x1600_amazon

Love is nothing but an illusion. Heiress Gabriella Winslow learned that lesson years ago when her magician boyfriend abandoned her, sick and alone, hundreds of miles from home. In the years that followed, she’s tried to forget him and the erotic bondage games they used to play. But the life she’s made for herself since then still leaves her restless and yearning for something more.

Now a successful illusionist, Alexander Black has returned to settle an old score. And to seduce Gabriella. With a blindfold and handcuffs and blood red roses, he entices his former lover and magician’s assistant back to his Las Vegas penthouse. If all goes according to plan, she’ll surrender to him before she discovers everything isn’t as it seems.

So what do you think?

Cover Reveal – Bound to Surrender!!

I haven’t been around much the past month or so because a family emergency took me away from home. To be near my parents, hubby and I have traveled from New York to Florida for the coming few months. I’m so glad we bought that new – bigger – RV last spring. We can be comfortable living in it for several months, being close but no longer living in the same house. With the new wifi hot spot we got during our quick run north to pick up the RV, I can now get back online with my computer!

I’d hoped to have Bound to Surrender out before Thanksgiving, but that didn’t happen. I hope to get it proofread and formatted soon and out for sale, but for now I’m excited to share the new cover – another great job by the talented Lacey Savage – and give you a little peek at what’s coming.

Previously published as Smoke and Mirrors.

Excerpt:

A strong arm wrapped around her shoulders and pulled her against a hard, hot body. At the same time, a long-fingered hand slapped over her mouth. The hand and the familiar, musky scent of arousal identified her assailant as surely as if she didn’t have the blindfold on.
Alexander.
“I always did enjoy watching you struggle,” he said, his lips brushing her ear. His deep voice rumbled through her body. She growled and he snatched his hand away from her mouth as if he could tell she was about to chomp into his flesh.
“You bastard!” She tried to pull away from him, but he held her fast against him.
“Gabriella. Gabriella,” he admonished. “Such words coming out of that refined mouth.”
“Fuck you!”
His chuckle was deep and dark. “Oh no. That’s your job.”
An image of her riding his thick cock, cries of passion ringing in the air, popped into her mind. “In your dreams,” she snapped, and hoped he didn’t hear the slight tremor in her voice.
His lips brushed her cheek. “You have no idea how often you haunt my dreams.”
She was shocked he’d make an admission like that. She wished she could see him, wished she could read the expression on that handsome face. But then, he’d always been good at hiding what he was thinking, so what good would it do? “Why are you doing this, Alex?”
He eased away from her slightly and ran his hand along her bare arm. Shivers followed his fingers along her skin. “I remember your fondness for certain illusions. The cuffs, the blindfold, the scarves.” He paused. “The cage.”
“I never liked the cage.”
He cupped her chin. “Of course you did.” He slid his fingers along her throat, stroking her from chin to chest. “Anticipation, princess. Nothing’s sweeter than anticipation.”
He dropped his fingers and skimmed them across the neckline of her dress, tracing the swells of her breasts. Shivers she hadn’t felt in years ran across her skin. While she knew she shouldn’t be thrilled to feel his hands on her now, she’d dreamed of this night too often to put up a fight.
Oh how well she remembered the expert touch of his fingers along her skin. He could always conjure up the sweetest sensations in her body. Like always, her pulse began to race. Moisture soaked her panties and trickled down her thigh.
He dove his hand beneath the neckline of her dress and cupped one of her breasts. She gasped as he squeezed her flesh and scraped his thumbnail across her sensitive nipple, just as she’d imagined a moment ago. “Ah yes. The one part of you I prefer unbound.”
Gaby dropped her head back onto the seat. The music wove through the air around them. The sensations had never been this strong. Ever.
Alex’s lips slid along her throat, smooth and wet. She moaned and yearned to wrap her arms around him, clasp him to her…
Or better yet, push him away.
But she couldn’t do anything but gasp when he nipped her skin with his teeth. “That’s my girl,” he murmured just loud enough to be heard over the music. “It’s been too long since I’ve had my mouth on you.”

Bound to Surrender will be released soon. If you’d like to be notified as soon as it is released, you can sign up for my newsletter.

Now that I’ve settled in the land of sunshine instead of snow, I hope to be able to get a lot of writing done and have more releases to share with you!

Turkey Talk + Recipe & Sexy Siesta Giveaway!

In and amongst the writing and everything that goes along with that gig, the family and I are getting ready for Turkey Day. We’re big on tradition since it’s only the husband and I here to pass on family traditions to the children so we take it big. Big meal, big game time, and a big dessert to end it on. I admit we almost passed on celebrating this holiday when the kids were born. Since we live in a country where Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated we briefly considered skipping it all together. But that didn’t last. We quickly decided that it was too much a part of our upbringing to leave it out of their lives.

Plus, we like turkey too much!

One tradition we hold dear to our hearts is that of reconnecting as a family on the big day by everyone having a turn in dressing the main course—Mr. Butterball! I have a top secret Cuban sofrito recipe (seriously top secret people!) that we use in basing the turkey first. After that is done, the girls stuff onions in small slits made in the meat and then I top it off with a special blend of butter, soy sauce, and freshly squeezed orange juice. My mouth is just watering thinking about the delicious meat. And the smell… nothing short of divine! And if there’s one thing my kids will take away from this it’s how to work as a team and never suffer through a dry turkey meal. 🙂

Here’s our turkey from last year. Juicy, huh? 😉

talinaturkey

We also leave this time of year for the pumpkin pie. I usually undertake this chore, but this year my eldest daughter is old enough to take on the task of making everything from scratch instead of store bought all on her own. Her big dream is one day being a master chef so, according to her, she needs the confidence. Can’t argue with that reason, so this I pass over the dessert apron to her. I’ll keep you posted with pictures after the holiday.

The menu doesn’t stop there. Since my husband is Cuban we like to mix up the more American traditional menu with some Latin spice. Every year I make a huge pot of moros y cristianos which is a dish of black beans a white rice mixed with herbs and spices. In fact, I have the recipe here for the taking if you’d like to give it a try this year. It’s a great dish to take to any gathering and easy to make if you know how to cook rice.

Moros y Cristianos

Ingredients for the back beans

1/2 pound of black beans (two cups if using canned beans)

1 medium onion

1 green bell pepper

6 sweet peppers (ají dulce or cubanelle pepper)

1 ham hock (optional)

 

Preparation of the the beans

  1. Rinse and pick the beans beans.
  2. In a pot with 2 1/2 quarts of water, put the beans onion, bell pepper, sweet peppers and ham hock. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours.
  3. Drain the beans and reserve 4 cups of the liquid. Discard vegetables and bones.

 

Ingredients for the dish

2 cups of rice

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1/4 pound of slab bacon diced

1 1/4 cup finely chopped medium onion

1 cup of green bell pepper, seeded, deveined, minced

1 teaspoon of ground cumin

1 teaspoon of dried oregano

1 bay leaf

1 tablespoon of white vinegar

1 tablespoon of dry sherry

2 teaspoons of salt

Preparation

  1. Put the rice in a colander and let the water run until it runs clear. Drain.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy pan and add the bacon. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion, pepper, cumin, oregano and bay leaf and sauté until onion wilts, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the rice and stir. Add the black beans and the reserved liquid. Add the vinegar, sherry and salt. Cook uncovered until the liquid has been almost completely absorbed and small crater have formed on the surface.
  5. Stir with a fork and reduce the heat to low and cook covered for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and let stand, uncovered, at least 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 8 servings

Where Has The Time Gone?

A year ago this month, I was ecstatic to have finished up one historical erotic romance series, and was waiting for two more books to release.

GiftFromFate

Now, I have nothing scheduled that has a firm day, but I do have a re-release coming later this year. I also re-released my first paranormal short story Hardened Desire. But what about writing another historical romance series? Not to worry. That is also in the works. Midnight Blaze, An Impetuous Lord’s novel is still in progress, and I’m still working on Lost in a Lord’s Embrace.

HardenedDesire

As we move into the final stretch of 2014, I thought I would share a few of the things I’ve been working on. I’ve been eagerly working on my sensual Gothic romance for an upcoming pitch session. I’ve also been working on some contemporary pieces as well. Those particular books will be self published, and if you thought Stay With Me was naughty, One Night of Pleasure is an eruption of sexiness waiting to happen.

In addition to all this sensual writing, I’ve taken up creating covers, and freelancing graphic work. Here’s an example of one of my first covers, and it just happens to be one of my indie releases in the Spring of 2015. I do have another, but that one is still very much under wraps.

One Night of Pleasure

 

Aside from that, I’ve been plugging away at life, and researching my butt off.

My question to you is, what are you reading? Read any new hot and short reads? Leave me your recommendation. I’m on the hunt for some reads that are less than 150 pages.

A little BDSM anyone?

 photo PleasingMrSuttonRed_300_zps0d321325.jpgI’m working on a new West Coast story which I’ll be releasing in August. Pleasing Mr. Sutton, Book 5 in the series, is BDSM lite, meaning you’ll get a bit of spanking. And a bit of flogging. No heavy pain scenes, just loads of sexy fun. Here’s the blurb and cover to whet your appetite!

Chairman of the board Rance Sutton is looking for a new playmate, an untried submissive he can train to do things his wicked way.

Miss Dawson, the chairman’s personal secretary, wants to get a lot more personal. What better way than becoming his new submissive? After all, she already does everything his way. So really, what’s a little spanking, flogging, handcuffing, and blindfolding if the payoff is Mr. Sutton in her bed? And that’s something she’s dreamed about for the entire five  years she’s worked for him.

The problem? This will be no love affair. He will be her master. And she will be his slave. Miss Dawson’s desires aren’t part of the bargain; everything will be about pleasing Mr. Sutton…

I love Rance. He’s my kind of sexy executive dom. Here’s a little quote that’s typical Rance:

“I have only one rule, Miss Dawson. You will do anything I tell you to do precisely when I tell you to do it.”

I’d love to hear what you think of the cover!

You can find Revenge, Book 1 in the West Coast series here: iBooks iBooks UK iBooks AU Kindle Kindle UK Nook Kobo All Romance Smashwords Coffee Time Romance

And don’t miss my previous release with a hot new cover! Not in the Game: http://bit.ly/notinthegame
