Whip me, Cane me, Make me write a blog post…and give away an ebook!

It’s been awhile Smut lovers, and for that I’m truly sorry. As it does to most of us on a regular basis, Life keeps getting in the way of my good intentions. However, today I’ve shut the door and braced it with my sofa, so that I can get a post up on 69 Shades of Smut.

2 - Flawless SurrenderSince I last posted a lot has happened, so let me give you the short version. Flawless Surrender – released, Caress of the Wolf – accepted, Weekend Surrender – goes to PRINT, Wild Wicked Weekend – WOOT SO MUCH FUN, Primal Surrender – accepted, Dreams of the Wolf  – goes to PRINT, Caress of the Wolf – scheduled for April 9 and cover received, and I just received my cover for Primal Surrender which is releasing in May. *huge sigh of relief* And while you’re reading this lovely post, I’m on a plane flying back from Las Vegas for a JK Publishing event.4-DOTW-Large

You know, two years ago, when I wrote Fire of the Wolf (The Gray Pack Book 1), I really had no comprehension of what it meant to be a published author. In my mind (as well as in some of yours I’m sure) there was a small cabin in the woods involved, and a quill with ink on a tiny desk next to a special writing chair. There would be tea, and solitude, and lots and lots of time to write……EEEEEHHHHH WRONG!1-FOTW-Large

In all actuality, there is a TON of work that goes along with publishing a book. The writing is the easy part! No lie! Once the book is written and sent to the publisher there is still a lot to do. Creating a cover is my favorite part as it involves getting to share my ideas with someone who loves to create things as much as I do. Look at these two pretties that I have to show off!

Yeah, they don’t get much better than that. Harris Channing and Jess Buffett both do amazing work! Anyways, other than the cover, there’s also editing, formatting, scheduling, final review, and that’s all before the book releases. On release day, most Authors watch their sales vigilantly, while sharing the link everywhere they possibly can, and thanking the people who share it for them. My favorite thing to do is give shit away on release day. People like winning prizes. I like giving prizes. Win-Win.

I’m also supposed to keep my own blog www.LoriKingBooks.wordpress.com up to date, and so truthfully I’ve slacked in every category except writing. Now it’s time to reintroduce myself and say, I’m sorry for being away, but I’M BAAAAAAAACK!!!!!  *run while you still can*

I hope you’ll take a peek at the books I have out right now: Amazon, and that you’ll let me know which book you’re most looking forward to reading. One lucky commenter will win an ebook from my backlist, so leave me a note along with your email address!

As always, Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance! ~Lori

Getting Dirty….the rest of the story…

Hello fellow Smut lovers! I’m so excited to be here I’ve had to change my panties twice…okay not really…but who wear’s panties nowadays?

Anywho, I’m Lori King, an erotic romance author currently publishing with Siren. I figured for my first “official” blog post as a member of 69 Shades of Smut, I had better give you a little background on who I am, and how I ended up writing smutty romance stories.

A little over a year ago I realized that I hadn’t had time to be ME for nearly a decade. Something about having kids and getting married stopped me from being me, and trust me, the me I was B.C. (Before Children) was wild with a capital W. Prior to kids I was heavily involved in the BDSM lifestyle, and had lived semi-happily in two different poly relationships. Once I got preggers, I decided that I was supposed to be respectable because I was going to be a mom. What a crock of crap that was! I went from married with kids to single mom, to married with more kids over the next several years, and every day I felt like something was missing.

Low and behold it was kink! Okay, so it was also writing, but the kink is the BEST part! I have always been a writer, and I was published the first time when I was fifteen, but exploring my sexuality by writing erotic romance, is something I didn’t have the courage to do back then. I wrote Fire of the Wolf-The Gray Pack 1, in three weeks after dreaming about twin werewolves for a couple of nights. Who would have thought a werewolf menage would be my first submitted manuscript? Believe me, I was shocked as shit when Siren offered me a contract to publish it. That flipped a switch and before I knew it I had jumped with both feet and all of my shades of smut, right into the sexy world of erotic romance. I’ve never been happier, and thankfully my husband and family are supportive.

I’ve since written two more books in the paranormal erotic romance series The Gray Pack: Reflections of the Wolf, and Legacy of the Wolf, and I just released the first book in a new contemporary menage series, Sidney’s Triple Shot-Apache Crossing 1. Sidney’s Triple Shot has flown up the charts at Siren, and is getting fabulous reviews. You can pick up my books from Bookstrand, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.

I’m very blessed to have traveled the road I have and come out smiling, and I’m looking forward to sharing more with you kinky beautiful people!

Here’s a little bit more about Sidney’s Triple Shot

TripleShot-MedSidney Rowe has been abused in ways that most people can’t even imagine.  After a horrific miscarriage, she left behind everything she had, to escape her ex-boyfriend.  She finds refuge in the kindness of the three Dawson brothers. They give her a job and a sense of security in the small town of Apache Crossing. 

Xavier, Tyce, and Noah Dawson, have built their bar, Triple Shot, into a profitable enterprise.  The three former Marines, have also built a reputation for integrity in the community, but their sex appeal and charm are legendary. They enjoy their playboy status…that is until a jumpy, skittish Sidney stumbles into their lives needing their help.

Sexual tension explodes when the brothers decide they want to protect and share Sidney, but to have her they have to stop her ex from haunting her. Can they keep her safe, and win her damaged heart?

ADULT EXCERPT

Out of the corner of her eye, she could see Noah and Tyce stripping out of their clothes as she tugged Xavier’s zipper down, exposing his hard length to her hot hands. She shoved his pants down his thighs and then wrapped her hand around him. She smiled again when her fingers didn’t quite close around his girth, and her pussy grew wetter. Sticking her tongue out, she gently licked the pre-cum off of the tip of his cock.

“Don’t tease me, Sidney,” Xavier grumbled, and she opened her lips and sucked his length down until it was teasing her tonsils. “Oh fuck, yes, that’s good, baby.”

Waves of satisfaction rolled over her at every grunt and moan of pleasure that escaped his voice box, and she doubled her efforts. Reaching her hand underneath him to cup his heavy balls, she began a sensual, circular motion with her fingers.

While she was alternately tugging and massaging at his balls, he roughly gripped her hair and began thrusting into her mouth at his own pace. She moaned around her mouthful of cock and felt his balls tighten in her hand.

“Swallow it, baby,” he directed, just before his whole body shuddered as cum shot into her mouth. She swallowed quickly, trying not to lose a drop, and after a few moments his hand gripped her chin to pull her away from him oversensitive cock. He tipped her head back to look down at her, and she smiled at the heavy-lidded look of a sated man.

“Your mouth is incredible,” he murmured as he bent to kiss her tingling lips. She was surprised by the kiss, knowing he must taste himself on her tongue, but she realized that even that was a turn on. When he finally broke their lip-lock and stepped away from her, she was breathing hard again, and she could feel the flush of lust on her face and throat.

“Strip now,” Xavier said in a low voice that stroked her desire even higher. She dropped her eyes from his as she tugged the beautiful navy-blue dress over her head. Noah snatched it from her hands before tossing it in the general direction of the kitchen and dropping to his knees where Xavier had been standing.

A blink later she was completely nude except for her strappy high-heeled sandals. She felt decadent and utterly sexual in the presence of three large, nude men, and she pushed away all of her normally self-conscious thoughts.

Tyce moved closer to her side and reached out with one hand to tweak her nipple. She reacted by moaning and arching into his hand, so he did it again, only harder. “Do you like that, love?” he whispered to her, but her panting gave the answer away for her.

Noah’s hands were forcing her knees apart, and his long, masculine fingers were gently stroking their way closer and closer to her cleft as Tyce dropped his head to suck her nipple into his mouth. She cried out at the ripples of ecstasy that rolled over her as Noah nipped at the soft skin of her inner thigh and danced his fingers over her dripping slit. Tyce’s teeth and tongue worked magic on her sensitive nipples, and before she could register what was happening, Sidney climaxed spectacularly.

* * * *

Noah knelt between Sidney’s legs with his eyes fastened on the soft, pink folds of her femininity. He watched the muscles clench as her orgasm rocked through her and saw the gush of cream that came with it. Thinking to himself that it would be a crime to waste that sweet-tasting juice, he ran the tip of his tongue over her, causing her to scream out as another smaller orgasm exploded over her.

He glanced over at Xavier, who sat in a chair, completely nude and entirely focused on the beautiful Sidney. By the rapturous look on his brother’s face, Noah could only hazard a guess that Xavier was as smitten by Sidney as he was.

Whether she knew it or not yet, she trusted them with her body and soul. There was no reason for it, other than fate, because they hadn’t known each other long enough for them to have truly earned her trust. His heart was swollen with pride and love for the beautiful woman, and all he could think about was claiming her for his own permanently.

He watched as Tyce tugged at her body until she moved where he wanted her. Now she rested on her knees with her chest on the seat of the couch, and her beautiful, curvy ass high in the air. Reaching one hand across her back to stroke over the soft white skin of her rear, he couldn’t resist giving her a little tap. She squealed, and Noah could feel his face break out in a grin to match Tyce’s.

“Again,” Xavier commanded from behind them, and this time Noah smacked the other ass cheek.

“Yes!” Sidney moaned into the couch cushion and wiggled her butt back and forth.

“Hold still, love, or you won’t get what you want,” Tyce said, and then he bent over her back to kiss her spine, soothing away the roughness of his words.

Noah continued to let his hands drift over Sidney’s body as Tyce gently began stroking her asshole with the tip of his finger. The whole time Sidney’s body trembled under their touch, but she managed to hold fairly still. With a wink at Noah, Tyce dropped behind her, and from the angle of his head, Noah knew he was licking her from front to back. She gasped, and her breath came out in a choking sound when Tyce’s licks centered on her ass, and when he finally raised his head, Noah could see he had penetrated her ass with two fingers.

I’ll sign off, as I do every post I write for my personal blog: don’t forget to Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance!
