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!

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.

I’m thrilled to tell you about Love Is… a 40 author short story charity anthology – the proceeds will benefit Reach Out and Read, which promotes literacy for families and children. I’m so excited to be part of this project. The reviews have been outstanding and I’m proud to be associated with such a fine group of authors.

My contribution is a contemporary romance in my Her Royal Romance world. The story can be enjoyed without reading the first two books, Her Royal Masquerade and Her Royal Bodyguard, but they are available if you’d like to catch up on the characters.

Her Royal Rendezvous
Heat rating: 3

Love is…
reunited lovers risking their hearts for a second chance.

Two years ago, Liliana Gullotti broke off her engagement to Tony Barone, head of royal security, because his job took over his life and left no time for her. But when she sees him at the prince’s wedding reception, she knows she’s never gotten over him. And she agrees to meet him at their old rendezvous spot one last time.

Tony never stopped loving Lil, but has honored her request to stay away from her. But once she approaches him at her cousin’s wedding, all bets are off. He’ll do whatever he can to show the sexy physician she means the world to him. And that a single rendezvous will never be enough.

Excerpt:

She stepped out of the puddle of fabric and turned to face him, wearing only silky red panties and those heels that hurt her feet. Her dark eyes were wide and blazed with desire as she looked up at him. Her red lipstick was smudged and he wondered if he was wearing the remnants on his mouth. The thought made him smile. He never thought he’d be smearing Lil’s lipstick again.

“What?” she asked. “Why are you smiling?”

“Can’t I be happy that you’re here?”

She lowered her gaze, then lifted it again and returned his smile. “Sure. I’m happy I’m here too.” She shifted on her feet. Either he was making her uncomfortable or her shoes were.

Tony swept her up in his arms and carried her over to his bed. “Let’s get rid of these heels,” he said. He set her on the edge of the mattress and knelt in front of her. She was so short her feet didn’t come close to hitting the floor. He slipped off one shoe and then the other, tossing them somewhere behind him.

He lifted her foot to his lips and kissed her toes, the ball of her foot, the tender instep, and then went higher, sweeping his mouth along her ankle and up the calf. She was so soft. And as he licked his way up her thigh she became even softer.

The scent of her arousal grew stronger as he neared the juncture of her thighs. Lil had spread her legs wide of her own accord. A quick glance showed him that she rested back on her elbows, gazing down on him with a smile.

“Hey, handsome.” She lifted one leg and draped it over his shoulder.

Her panties were darker between her legs. He skimmed a finger down the damp center and she rocked her hips and cried out his name. Tony smiled and slipped his finger underneath the elastic. Oh yeah, she was slick and ready for him. But first he had to taste her again.

“Raise your hips, Lil.” He slipped her panties off and tossed them on top of the rumpled dress on the floor beside him. He lifted her ankles and rested her feet on his shoulders. She was still looking at him and he caught her gaze and gave her a wink. Then he swept his tongue along the length of her crease, tasting her cream and pleasing her the way he’d always loved to do. He dove in, licking and sucking the slick flesh.

“Yes. More. Just like that!”
Lil had always been vocal during sex. Tony had never had to wonder if she liked what he was doing. He gripped her hips and focused on her clit, swirling his tongue in tighter and tighter circles around that tiny bundle of nerves.

He’d missed the way she thrashed on the mattress. Missed the way his name echoed off the walls. And when he lightly scraped his teeth along her clit, he remembered how much he’d missed watching her come apart under him.

Sexy Royal Giveaway

Her Royal Masquerade and Her Royal Bodyguard, the first two books in my Her Royal Romance series, are now available in print as well as e-book. To celebrate, I’m giving away one autographed copy of book #1, Her Royal Masquerade, to a random commenter on today’s blog post.

Blurb:

Time is running out for Prince Vittorio. His father’s health is failing and he must find a royal bride. Fast. He’s never forgotten his glimpse of a beautiful Scandinavian princess and lures her to his Mediterranean country with an invitation to his father’s birthday ball. He’d planned to propose a marriage agreement as cold as her icy reputation, but then he discovers she’s as colorful and warm as a summer sunset. The heat between them flares red-hot and when she allows him to seduce her, Vittorio sees his future unfolding just as he had planned. But what he doesn’t know is that the woman in his bed is not a princess at all.

The last thing schoolteacher Mia Holmberg expects when she masquerades as her royal cousin is to be swept off her feet by a charming prince. The incredible night in Vittorio’s arms is like a fairy tale come true, but she’d never want the life of a real princess, with all its pomp and politics. Knowing they can never have a future together, she slips out of his bed and back to reality, where she belongs.

But Vittorio discovers the deception and kidnaps Mia back to his palace, demanding she be his mistress until the real princess appears. Despite her attempts to stay aloof, Mia soon learns there’s more to the prince than arrogance and attitude, but now she’s in danger of falling in love with a man she can never have.

And because we can never have enough excerpts, here’s one to tempt you 🙂

“So what now?” she demanded as she dragged her attention away from the direction to which her gaze had been drawn. “Are you going to keep me locked up in here until she appears?” She propped her fists on her hips and leaned forward, getting in his face. His handsome, stormy face. “Are you going to throw me in the dungeon? You must have a dungeon in the palace somewhere to hide away your enemies and kidnap victims.”

“You are being ridiculous.” His voice rumbled through the highly charged air surrounding them.

Her heart began to race but not from fear, not from his dark frown. “It’s probably in the dark and moldy cellar, right? I’ll bet it has rusty chains and hungry rats and a torture chamber.”

Vittorio grasped her shoulders with his long fingers and she wanted to sigh. “Now you are being childish.”

She shouldn’t have goaded him into touching her. A dangerous buzz grew under her skin. “Or, I know, maybe you’ll just keep me cuffed to the bed. Yes, that would be what you’d do to a woman who refuses to be your mistress, wouldn’t you? Keep her here at your mercy until—”

Vittorio crushed his lips to hers, silencing her. Devouring her. Mia opened to him, allowing his invading tongue to sweep into her mouth, drinking from her. She wrapped her arms around his neck because she simply couldn’t stop herself from doing so. Her brain was so overloaded with sensations, she forgot why she didn’t want to press up against his bare chest.

She savored the delicious shivers dancing over her body and Vittorio’s lips sliding along hers.

Soft knocking broke through the haze of arousal. Vittorio groaned and pulled away. She couldn’t decipher the expression on his face before he turned and strode through the suite to the door. Mia stepped into the doorway of the bedroom to see Tony lean in and speak softly to Vittorio.

Now that Vittorio’s body wasn’t pressed up against her, his scent not invading her senses, his taste not lingering on her tongue, Mia’s brain began to work again. How could she have melted against him like a weak, needy woman? Only minutes after refusing to become his mistress, she’d kissed him as if she wanted him to toss her on the bed and ravish her.

She did. Heaven help her, she wanted to throw her self-respect to the wind and agree to anything if it meant she’d be in his arms again.

Her Royal Bodyguard is Here!

Her Royal Bodyguard, book #2 in my Her Royal Romance series, is now available for download. I love these characters, the young romantic princess who comes to realize how sheltered she has been, and the loyal bodyguard who tries so hard to resist his attraction to the woman he has sworn to protect.
HerRoyalBodyguard_300x200-ARe
Excerpt:

He climbed onto the bed with her. “Amore.” He gently cupped her jaw and covered her mouth with his.

She sighed and opened for him, drawing his tongue into her mouth. Each deep pull shot straight to his erection. He wrapped his arms around her and lowered her onto the mattress.

Soft. Warm. Smelling so sweet and tasting of red wine and Angelina. Her dark eyes sparkled. He didn’t see a trace of nerves or uncertainty in their depths.

She brushed her fingers over his head. “I’m glad you grew your hair in. I like being able to run my fingers through it.

He liked anything that got her hands on him. “Then I’m glad I tired of shaving it every

“Touch me, Rico,” she whispered. “Please touch me.”

She didn’t have to ask again. He took his time, letting his hands roam over her body. Softly. Gently.

He felt her gaze on him, watching as he focused his attention on her soft breasts. She gasped when he teased her tight nipples, first with his fingers and then with his hungry mouth.

Angelina arched her back and cried out his name. “That feels incredible. Harder, Rico. Suck harder.”

He smiled around the nipple in his mouth. He should have known his Angelina would not want gentle. She had a hot-blooded passion to match his own.

Eventually, he released her nipples and focused attention on other areas of her lovely body. She sighed as he stroked her slender arms, her long legs, her flat abdomen. Soon she was moving wildly beneath his caresses. He stretched out beside her and slipped his fingers through the curls between her thighs. Her hands caught the bed covers and she gasped.

“I want to make sure you’re ready for me,” he told her. Her wetness covered his fingers and he spread the moisture along her slick flesh. When he found her tiny clitoris and circled it with one finger, her hips jerked and she cried out.

“Yes. That’s it,” he murmured. “You’re ready, aren’t you, amore? You’re ready for me?”

Looking Forward

To 2014 of course!

2013 was a year of change for me. Not only did I leave my day job and start writing full-time, but in addition to writing for Ellora’s Cave and Samhain, I decided to indie publish as well and Her Royal Masquerade is doing very well. And I’m loving every minute of it.

HerRoyalBodyguard_300x200-ARe2014 will be a busy year for me. I’ve finished writing book #2 in my Her Royal Romance series and if all goes well, Her Royal Bodyguard should be live early in 2014.

Blurb:
After almost getting kidnapped, Princess Angelina is swept away by royal bodyguard Rico Santori to a small, secluded village for her protection. Always the good girl, the obedient daughter, the proper princess, Angie’s tired of putting her own desires – her own life! – on hold. She could have been killed in the kidnapping attempt and never known the ecstasy of making love with a passionate man. Angelina has had a crush on the strong, loyal Rico for years and while they hide out, pretending to be a newlywed couple, she decides to practice her seductive skills on him.

This is Rico’s last job for the royal family. He’s leaving to build his own life, opening his own security firm. Angie is smart and pretty but she’s royalty and he’s just the hired muscle. But as the days go by, her attempts at seduction try the calm patience he’s known for. He warns her they can only share a bed until he returns her safely to the palace.

But when danger strikes again, it may be too late to explore the love they never expected to find.

PlayingForReal-R-1The last book in my Paolo’s Playhouse series from Samhain, Playing for Real, releases in a little over a month. Release date for this erotic romance is February 4th, but it’s available for pre-order now.

Blurb:
Paolo Mancini’s needs are simple: a committed relationship with a submissive who will let him love and care for her. But after a long, heartbreaking string of relationship failures, he’s beginning to think the perfect woman for him simply doesn’t exist.

When Julianne Barnes steps into his playhouse for one night of bondage sex, she blows him away with her beauty, sass and bravery. She could be the one…if she will allow him to show her how to weave bondage and submission into her life. And hopefully, into his.

Julianne keeps her craving for soft ropes, dark blindfolds, and strong fingers apart from “real life”, where this successful businesswoman doesn’t need anyone telling her what to do. Yet Paolo’s lyrical, steel-under-silk voice affects her body in ways that make her want to offer up her soul.

Slowly, delicately, Paolo tantalizes her closer to the idea that fantasy and reality can live as one. But to convince her it’s safe to open the last compartment protecting her emotions, he’ll have to expose his greatest vulnerability. His heart.

Warning: Features a petulant sub looking to live out her fantasies and a sexy Dom looking for love of the forever kind. Contains an intense sex-with-a-stranger fantasy, ropes, chains and a spanking. Or two. Or more.

Later in the year, I’ll have another release from Samhain. The Cottage Next Door, a contemporary second-chance-at-love romance will release in early September.

In the meantime, I hope to have more contemporary royalty romances released in 2014. Book #3, Her Royal Mistake, will release mid-2014.

So, yeah 2014 looks to be a busy year. I can’t wait!
