Bewitching the Alpha Out Now + GIVEAWAY-TALINA PERKINS

Bewitching the Alpha it out and ready for your hot little hands! I’m so happy for you to meet my über sexy alpha shifter, Julian. Don’t tell anyone, but he’s my favorite of all the shifters from the series. He’s damaged, hurt, and royally pissed, but has a tender side that speaks to a woman! Especially Ember, the witch with a not so legal plan to win back her man. She’s ready to help him heal, but she has a small problem with said plan. First, she’s the one that hurt him, not good. And secondly, her truth spell calls for a dragon’s and that never ends well. Their story is growly, sexy and filled with so much emotion you can’t help but want them to have a HEA! 😉

If you signed up for my newsletter, you have the first chapter as a special excerpt already waiting for you in your inbox. Fingers crossed it didn’t land in your spam!

In celebration of my new release, I’m throwing a RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY that lasts through tomorrow! To enter skip over to my Facebook page and give the giveaway post a comment and a like and you’re done! Or, do you prefer Instagram? The giveaway is live there too on my account. Repost/ like for extra points! Open internationally. Two winners will be picked and announced this Saturday!

RELEASE DAY

The Hex My Heart series is fabulous for satisfying your craving for a hot alpha shifter while on the go or for a fix right before bedtime.

Sometimes breaking the rules is the only way…

Forced out of the Royal High Council of Witches and shunned by her family for mating Julian, a wolf shifter, Ember is given an ultimatum: leave Sweet Briar Hollow, or her whole family pays the ultimate price for her sins.

She should have let them take their magickal powers.

Almost a year later, Ember is back and no amount of magick or law will stop the once sweet and calm witch from reclaiming her mate. With a plan in place and a devil-may-care take on the world, only one thing can stop her. Julian. Armed with a drop of dragon’s blood and an illegal truth spell, Ember has until the stroke of midnight on the winter solstice to mend their bond and forge a new future with her shifter. But when the truth comes to light can he forgive her for leaving him? Or will her spell cast them farther apart?

Just one little problem with her charm she didn’t count on… a very pissed off and lusty half-naked alpha shifter and the full moon.

Not what she expected. Honestly. Well, maybe she did. Either way, if her truth spell turned and bit her in the rump, she’d need more than her magick to help her win back her alpha. All’s fair in the world of magick and love.

Hex My Heart, a werewolf erotic series, follows five coven sisters as they find true love through their misadventures with love spells gone wrong with a botched hex or two. Be warned, this series is smokin’ hot!

TALL, DARK AND ALPHA Blog Tour – What is an Alpha!

Tall, Dark & Alpha: An Alpha is Masculine

 TDACover400x398

Thank you for hosting us today. We’re excited to talk about the alpha trait masculinity and our stories for the boxed set Tall, Dark & Alpha as we try to figure out: what IS alpha?

An Alpha is Masculine

From his searing gaze to his rock-hard torso, the alpha man is all male. His masculinity fills all five senses. Only a real man can make her feel like a woman.

The alpha hero in Rock My Boat by Afton Locke, a paranormal romance, is a shape shifter. Picture a muscular guy in uniform with a five o’clock shadow and fierce, dark eyes focused on YOU. Simon is tall, dark, and alpha. Need we say more? (Once addicted to the sea, you can’t escape its pleasures.)

Silver Tongued Devils by Dawn Montgomery, a sci-fi romance, has two alpha heroes. Na’varr has never wanted for female company. Only one woman, however, has ever matched his needs: Raesa. Brom is a hybrid of human and cat DNA. His body was built for sin but his heart has never been touched. Until Raesa. (She was always one step from hell until she found redemption in their arms.)

In Fight for Love by Delaney Diamond, a contemporary romance, the alpha hero is a former professional wrestler. Rafael is all man and filled with testosterone. He’s used to women coming onto him, but he only cares about impressing and pleasing one woman – Rebekah. (A former pro wrestler fights to hold onto the woman he lost, but still loves, and the son he never knew existed.)

The alpha hero in Crazy by Eve Langlais, a paranormal romance, is a vampire. Tall dark and handsome. Zane is the ultimate bad vampire oozing sex appeal and danger. (Ella hears voices and they don’t like anyone.)

In Sex With an Ex by Eve Vaughn, a contemporary romance, the alpha hero is a lawyer. Ethan Boudreaux is the kind of man women want and men want to be like. His tight, toned body is every woman’s wet dream come true. (When two divorcees reunite in the bedroom, the sex is hotter than ever, but can their hearts survive the second time around?)

The alpha hero for In Her Wildest Dreams by Farrah Rochon is a CEO chocolatier. With a body sculpted by years of pick-up basketball games with his boys and mixing up batches of luscious chocolate, Gavin has a body to die for.  (When the woman of his dreams asks him to create a Valentine’s Day fantasy, Gavin plans to show her just how sweet their reality could be.)

In Two Cops, a Girl and a Pair of Handcuffs by Paige Tyler, a contemporary romance, the heroes, Reed and Hayes, are both cops and hot, hunky guys, something the heroine, Cilla, appreciates. (Working the late shift just got a whole lot more fun!)

The alpha hero in Chase and Seduction: Hot Country Series, Book 1 by Randi Alexander, a contemporary romance, is a musician. Chase Tanner, country western superstar, broke his personal best record for orgasms the night he and Reno Linden first made love – even though it took all night and a whole box of condoms. (Come backstage and get your hands on country superstar Chase Tanner!)

In Tall, Dark & Apocalyptic by Sam Cheever, a paranormal romance, Audie, the alpha hero, is a bounty hunter.

story snippet:

The sound of his footsteps across the littered floor was like a series of cannon blasts, and she winced under every one. His massive arms arched from his sides as he walked, the huge hands loosely fisted. He held a long knife in one hand. Thick, muscular legs stuck out from underneath a bloody and tattered kilt, the burgundy and black pattern barely visible under the filth of an extended battle.

Yeira noted the blade in his hand, knowing it was meant for her.

He stopped a foot away, his intense, dark-blue gaze sweeping over her. “My god, woman. You look like hell.”

(A grand passion in an apocalyptic world. A love beyond reason and without boundaries.)

Featured Story – Rock My Boat by Afton Locke

Blurb

Workaholic CEO Rhonda Simms embarks on a Caribbean cruise to create an ad campaign for a big maritime freight client. She finds it impossible to concentrate, however, when Simon Mann, a blue marlin shifter, sets his sights on her. From a private, hands-on safety briefing to a wild ride in the ocean, he rocks her ordered world.

Simon drowned years ago in a shipwreck caused by Rhonda’s client, and he’ll do anything to be a normal man again. As his mate, Rhonda is the only person who can help him.

Tired of being so responsible, Rhonda is ready to let loose with a shipboard fling. Mating with Simon could cost a lot more than her virginity, however. Will she stick to her present course or will she let this sexy alpha rock her boat?

Excerpt (explicit)

“I’ve never appreciated heartless decisions CEOs make that affect people’s lives.”

Maybe that explained why he seemed to have a need to control everything, including her.

“We’re not all heartless.”

“Maybe not.” The pad of his finger brushed her cheek. “I didn’t know they could be so sexy either.”

A second call came through, announcing another mini crisis. If only she’d stayed home so she could keep things running. By the time this cruise from hell was over, Simms Creative Advertising Agency would probably be in ruins.

When the call ended, Simon snatched the phone out of her hand.

“What are you doing?” That rectangle of metal and plastic was the lifeline to her business.

“Throwing this thing into the ocean so we can have some peace.”

“The hell you are!”

Her heart pounded as she grabbed it from him. Maybe he was right. The constant interruptions would make it hard to work on her campaign, and the international rates were probably costing her a fortune. He was the next distraction she needed to get rid of. She turned the phone off and stowed it in her tote bag.

That must have been the signal he was waiting for because he also put her pen and notebook in the bag.

“Simon, you have to go.”

Instead of answering, he scooped her into his arms and crushed her body against his. The scrape of his unshaven jaw across her cheek was her only warning before he kissed her. It was more of an assault than a kiss. His mouth clamped to hers, opening and filling her with his slashing lips and tongue.

“Look, you alpha brute. Who do you think—?”

He swallowed the rest of her sentence with another brutal kiss while he gripped the back of her neck.

Too senseless to breathe, she clenched his shoulders, fisting the shirt fabric as her back arched above the cushion. His salty taste tingled on her tongue, whipping it into a frenzy. She wanted more, more, more.

Despite being in public, she couldn’t suppress a soft moan. Need, hot and slick, coated the seat of her bathing suit. When he tugged one strap off her shoulder, she shivered with longing and thrust her bare breast toward his mouth.

Her body was his now, completely beyond her control.

Another update on my upcoming release

Morning all!  There’s only today and tomorrow to take advantage of our grand giveaway. See the sidebar for more details on how you can win a Kindle/Nook or a gift certificate of equivalent value.

While I don’t have an excerpt ready or cover art yet, I do have a blurb I’ll be sharing with you in a moment. What I’d like to do in the meanwhile is give you some dates of where I’ll be guest blogging at to help promo my debut release. These are the confirmed dates I have, and would love if you have a spot for me, please email me with your available dates. I can be reached at layna (dot) pimentel (at) gmail (dot) com.

March 16th – I’ll be visiting with author Raine Delight at http://authorrainedelight.com/

And now, without further ado, I present you with my blurb. Enjoy!

After colliding with a stunning vision in white, retired Staff Sergeant Brent Daniels offers to drive the beautiful stranger to a hotel for the night, but instead discovers he’s with one very lost creature. He’s bewitched by her sinful curves, her dark and mesmerizing eyes, and the pull at his soul with each minute passing. Nevertheless, he can’t shake the feeling she’s hiding something.

Melpomene, daughter of Zeus, finds her handsome rescuer resembles the man who has continuously haunted her dreams. Before long, she’s in his arms, wanting more. Knowing their days are numbered, desperation leads her to reach out for help by an unlikely ally.

Just how far will these two lovers go, and what will they sacrifice to be together?

 

So what do you think? I’d love to hear from you.

She was my first? Who was yours?

Cassie RyanDo you remember the first erotic romance you ever read? I do. I had no idea these books were out there. Yup, I was totally clueless. Oh sure, I’d read romances for years, but erotic romance? Actually, it sounded too good to be true 🙂

I had joined a romance writers’ group and had been a member for a few months when one of the published authors who had been very nice to me, brought her books for a signing. I wanted to support her because she had been so free with information about publishers and agents and the writing life. So I bought her book, CEREMONY OF SEDUCTION, by ReesCassie Ryan. I got it home and started reading. OMG! This was great! A world where sex was a given and citizens enjoyed it wherever they were. Of course, then I had to buy all of Cassie Ryan’s books as fast as Kensington could put them out.  Next was Allyson James, another author in our group, who’s steamy Shareem with Ellora’s Cave had me hooked and hooked deep. Thankfully, she had a complete series already written for me to devour, men created to serve women on three different levels. I started with Rees and didn’t look back.

masque_msr finalWhat was it about the combination of erotic explicit sex and the trials and tribulations of romance? I had to investigate further by reading more and more 🙂 Then I just had to start writing an erotic romance, and then two, and of course, I couldn’t stop. Now I have my own erotic romance being published by Ellora’s Cave. I wonder if MASQUE by Lexi Post will be someone else’s first. I hope that someone, a virgin reader of erotic romance, will follow Rena and Synn through the Pleasure Rooms and fall in lust and love with them and this genre. Who knows?

So who was your first erotic romance author? Do you remember?

Where in the world did 2012 go?

WOW! I seriously cannot be alone, in wondering where the year went. As we begin to say farewell to an unforgettable year for many reasons–personal, professional, and international news wise–I think the one thing we that makes us an incredible species, is how we continue to push ourselves forward.

2012 proved to be an extremely trying year for myself professionally and artistically. Right when I was ready to give up and running out of options of what to do next, the universe decided to grace me with a few opportunities. I’m grateful for having a patient family, who allow me the ‘alone’ time I need for writing. I’m over the moon, in having found a publisher who believes in what I do. And most of all, I’m forever indebted to the friends I’ve made along the way on this journey. The key to anything we do in life is never to give up. If you fail the first time, pick yourself up, and try again. I read a really interesting interview with everyone’s favorite cover model Jimmy Thomas, which kinda sorta inspired this post. Check it out here.

In 2013–so far–I am committed to bringing you my readers, the very best that I can give you. That’s not my only New Year’s resolution, but it’s one I thought you’d want to hear. Be sure to check out my debut release in March, A Gift From Fate, as well as Hardened Desire will also be out in April. While both are paranormal shorts, I assure you, I’m working on a very special and hot historical romance series for regency fans everywhere.

Do you have any resolutions? Quit smoking, run a marathon, go back to school? I’d love to hear from ya. And keep in mind, no resolution is too small, and every effort counts. So if one of your goals is to hit the gym six days a week, and you only make it four times, don’t beat yourself up. Shit happens for a reason, but if at least keep working on it, things are bound to work out.

A feast for the senses!

Hi friends of the 69 Shades of Smut!

Well, its that time of year again. American Thanksgiving was recently celebrated and I’m still seeing posts on Facebook about how full everyone is. Here in Canada, we had Thanksgiving a month ago, and I still can’t handle the thought of turkey for a while.

Admit it, as much as we moan and complain about those annual holidays that make us feel like gluttons, it is satisfying indulging the senses for a spell. There’s nothing better than walking into a house where a turkey has been slowly roasting all day, and catching a delightful whiff of all those trimmings.

We’re pretty lucky to be able to enjoy that.

And let’s face it, there’s something absolutely sensuous about eating and drinking delicious foods. It engages all our senses: we touch the food, smell it, hear it roasting or crackling or simmering, we see it come to a boil or thickening in the pot. And of course, we taste it, swallowing it down, remembering its unique flavor. Sounds an awful lot like lovemaking to me!

I wanted to capture some of that feeling in my paranormal romance The Selkie.   In my book, selkies are sensual creatures, driven by smell and taste. I describe their unique sensibility and liken them to cats. They can smell a fragrance, that sense of smell transfers to their tastebuds, and they can suddenly taste. An intriguing thought, when standing in front of an aroused individual!

Has there ever been a smell that has driven you wild? I know I have some. My favorite has to be cocoa butter. I smell it and am immediately transported to a sandy beach. I can almost feel the water lapping at my toes. Is there a sound or taste that has remained in your memoryback, conjuring delicious images? I’d love to know. Is it the flavor of sweet wine, or perhaps the feel of leather? What sense memories stimulate you?

While you’re pondering this, I’ve leave you with a little snippet from The Selkie. Hopefully my selkie man will engage your senses!

Blurb:

This was supposed to be her year. However, after losing her job and discovering her fiancé cheating, Maggie Collins has her doubts. When her grandmother dies, she hits rock bottom. Maggie travels to her grandmother’s home in Orkney, Scotland to sort through her gran’s things, only to discover the old woman has left her a seal pelt as her inheritance. She also learns that others are after the pelt.
To add to her frustration, Maggie’s dreams are filled with luscious images of a long-haired man, images that draw her to the magical beaches in Orkney. Although she’s lost her trust in men, this dream man inspires her with a lust she’s never known before.
Calan Kirk has also been dreaming. Dreaming of Maggie, the mortal woman who arouses him as no other woman ever has. Meeting her in the flesh when she arrives in Orkney is nothing short of spontaneous sexual combustion. But she is a human, and not to be trusted. He needs the seal pelt, not a red-haired temptress.
As a thief ransacks Maggie’s grandmother’s house, Maggie and Calan are thrust together. They must search for the animal skin, a mythical relic which once found, will either bring them together or rip them apart forever.
Excerpt:

The woman addressed only Calan, as if in a stupor. “What would you like, handsome? Please tell me it’s forty-year-old blondes with a couple of kiddies at home.”

He merely grinned, as if he got that response from women all the time. “A bottle of red wine, please, pet. Oh, and a shrimp plate, the buttered scallops, the lobster pasta, and the oyster special.” He turned to Maggie. “What’ll you have, love?”

She couldn’t stop her eyes from popping. “None of that was for me?”

He leaned over and whispered, grinning lasciviously. “I did warn you about selkie appetites.”

She tried to ignore the luscious ripple of sexual promise that wobbled through her core.

A short time later, Maggie was polishing off her lunch-sized portion of fish and chips, watching as her strange companion swallowed back the last oyster with gusto. He’d eaten all of it, every last morsel, although he’d tried to share a great deal of it with her. And he’d ordered two more bottles of red wine, too. She’d had a glass. He’d had the rest. And he was as sober as a novice on her first day at the convent.

“Do you always eat like this?”

Calan laughed. “I’ll share something with you. Selkie folk are sensualists. We live to feel, Maggie. We live to touch, to smell, to taste.” He leaned over and gave her a kiss so redolent of buttered shrimp that she almost thought she was at Red Lobster. “And we like to eat, mostly shellfish, but I’d take a good burger any day.”

She couldn’t help laughing at his enthusiasm. It was as infectious as his kisses.

“And,” he continued, “I do have a weakness for fine red wines. And one of the perks of being selkie is that it takes a lot to get me drunk.”

Look whose book is a recommended read on USA Today!

Along with other red-hot Romantica from Ellora’s Cave, but it’s my 15 minutes to 48 hours of fame and I’m still riding the new release high, so please indulge me. Check it out!

You’ve met MacCale and Lucie, but what’s Perpetual Pleasure all about again? The story begins, as these stories often do, with a boy meets girl setup. Or rather girl sees perfect one-night stand material but seduction doesn’t go as planned. What follows certainly doesn’t follow our heroine’s plan or her triple F system of survival: Find ’em, fuck ’em, forget ’em. She is an immortal, a twenty-six-year-old Savannahian going on two hundred and sixty. [Depending on your bloodlust, the bad news: not a vampire, the good news: not a vampire.]

The story came to me as Alex Rising once did, in flashes of what later became the opening scene. I saw this mysterious, magnetic woman working the room at a party. She screamed sophistication and savoir faire. And she was totally fake somehow, as if it was only an act, as if she was wearing some kind of mask. There was a man in the room thinking the exact same thing, seeing right through her, and as thoroughly mesmerized and fascinated by her as I was.

The man, our hero, is a daredevil. He’s not looking for a one-night stand, more like a one-life stand, and he isn’t sated with a quickie. But when you’re immortal like our heroine is, relationships, short-lived or long-term, aren’t really an option. Your lovers aren’t getting any younger and you’re not getting any older. How does that work? I kept thinking about how lonely Lucie had to be and really felt for her, but she laughed at my pity because she was doing just fine. She was immortal after all. And only human. That’s what MacCale will remind her of. But he doesn’t understand her motivation or how she feels until later, much later. Too late?

So what happened to Lucie? Will MacCale get through to her? The bad news: you’ll have to read the book to find out. The good news: it’s now available from Ellora’s Cave and coming soon to a third party e-tailer near you! (I’ll add links to my personal page as they go live, just click my name on the banner.)

 PerpetualPleasure-1

Stunt performer MacCale Moore knows a thing or two about seduction. And he knows all about putting on a show. The Savannahian bombshell coming on strong is tempting all right. But there’s something wrong with the picture. Seeing through her charade isn’t the problem. Convincing a flaming femme fatale to trust him with her heart and not just her body may well turn out to be the hardest stunt he’s ever had to perform.

No dating. No cuddling. No emotion. No exceptions. Lucie Marcotte’s system of survival has saved her from heartache for two hundred years and counting. Now her latest conquest is asking to be more than just another link in her endless chain of one-night stands. So what if it’s the best sex she’s ever had? Their relationship has nowhere to go. But how to convince him or stop herself from hurting them both, she has no idea. Before Lucie knows it, she is breaking all her rules. And for an immortal, that’s just flirting with disaster.

Enjoy, 69ers, and have yourself a sexcellent weekend. Muah!

Feel like makin’ love

How goes it, 69ers? Everyone enjoying their summer, or winter, if you happen to live below Mother Earth’s waist? I’m sorry for the radio silence but I’ve been vacationing with the family now that Hubby finally has some time off.

June and July were Take Your Kids To Work Day, every day, at Casa Dita. I’ve been doing the working mom thing on steroids, so you bet I’ve been looking forward to August. I promised myself I would focus on family and friends, and family and friends only. They deserve it. I’ve earned it. And where’s my head at on this fine summer day?

On Perpetual Pleasure and release day, only three weeks away. On promo and writing and projects that have been on hold or moving at the speed of slugs on Valium for weeks. On the fact that in seven days, the kids will be back in school and I’ll be able to pick up where I left off in early June and resume my raunchy office romance. (Dad, you might want to stop reading now. Yes, I do mean with your son-in-law so put the phone down, you’re ruining this.)

I had to smile at Cassandre’s post yesterday. It was a tight smile, a forced one, because summer is quickies. Summer is stealth sex. Summer is the constant possibility of interruption. Summer is a prelude to fall, gearing up, leisurely looking through what’s new at selected adult toy stores. Build-up. A teaser trailer where all the sex you’re not having flashes through your mind, courses through your body and does it’s damage: leaves you wanting.

Summer is torture for someone who really likes their bedplay, someone who likes to take things nice and slow and thorough, someone who, when they want a little hardcore with their gentle, likes to get vocal and verbal. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I don’t even want to know what they say about abstinence. I say that in marriage at least, it’s the pits. I say it makes Dita a very restless, cranky girl. I don’t stand well on two feet, I need three: spiritual sustenance, food for thought and physical activity, and I don’t mean just sports.

So. Next week, when you’re sitting at work, taking a break and having coffee, I’m taking full advantage of a kid-free house and having my hot man from the cold, who, as fate would so happily have it, works the oddest of hours, is often home during the day, and more than happy to be my afternoon delight and steamy office affair. What? As if you wouldn’t take advantage of the situation. You would? You are? Good for you! Highly recommended, skipping coffee and other substances for something infinitely more healthy and energizing. And I’m a fitness enthusiast, but workout breaks just aren’t the same, are they?

Can’t wait for release! Day. Can’t wait for release day, which is August 31st. For instant gratification, there’s Alex Rising, and since August’s theme here at the blog is vacations, I chose the sexcerpt accordingly. Enjoy!

An Excerpt From: ALEX RISING

Tristan and Danny had been as close as brothers, as close as Alex was with his twin sister. It figured they would love the same woman. Danny had tried to hide it. He had managed to for a while. But with time, the more Tristan talked about Lin, the less Danny commented until it seemed he wanted to be nowhere near when the subject of wives and girlfriends was brought up. Alex knew a self-defense move when he saw one.

Danny must have felt like a lucky bastard when Tristan had approached him and offered him the possibility of being with Lin. But luck hadn’t been on their side the day both men had died. And Alex didn’t think Tristan had been thinking of Lin. He had only been thinking of himself. He had won the wager and now Alex and Lin would pay the cost.

Letting Lin settle, Alex looked at the photographs sitting in their colorful frames on a dark wooden drawer by the wall. He zeroed in on one of Lin sandwiched between Tristan and Danny, Lin facing Tristan and holding on to him, Danny glued to her back and holding on to them both.

“The two of you look so much alike you could have been brothers. Is that why you chose him? To make it easier on yourself and Lin? I know you didn’t even have to twist his arm. It was the worst-kept secret in the team that he lusted after her, you know.”

“Alex…”

“Yes, Tristan?” No time like the present to let the cat out of the bag, Alex decided, even if he had to drag it out by the tail.

“If we’re going to do this, let’s at least be honest about things. She might not have known, but you guys did a terrible job pretending you didn’t notice Danny had a hard-on for her. Remember that topless picture of Lin sunbathing?”

“Tristan!” Lin gasped.

“Oh don’t worry, sweetie. He never meant to show it to anyone, but he kind of misplaced it. I found Danny jacking off with it.”

“Oh god.” Her hands flew to her ears.

“It’s okay. It’s in a safe place. In fact, you can have it back now.” He dug out his wallet and took out his favorite pinup to date.

“Alex!”

“Yeah yeah yeah, I’ve had it all this time. I threatened to tell you if he didn’t let me confiscate it. It was wrong of him to take it in the first place.”

“It was even worse of you to keep it.” Murder and mayhem sounded out in Tristan’s words.

“It’s a very nice picture.”

Lin took the picture he now offered and slapped it facedown on the coffee table without even stealing a glance. She remembered the day it had been taken. It had been their first trip abroad together and the first time they’d had sex outdoors.

The bungalow had been secluded and they had taken full advantage of its private location. She had been sunbathing topless when Tristan had turned the camera on her and asked her to strike her best pinup pose. She had done his bidding, he had taken the picture, put the camera away then asked if she’d like to take the bikini bottom off too. She had dared him to do it himself.

He had sat at the edge of the lounger and put his hand on the tiny triangle of fabric. He had massaged her mound lightly then asked her to open her legs a little wider. She had been wet and ready for him as he’d slipped his hand between bare skin and thin cloth and gone for her clit and slit with added pressure. She had tried to breathe evenly.She had meant to tease him until he dragged her indoors and took her. It had been Tristan doing all the teasing instead with his fingers on her pussy, rubbing her until she’d writhed.

“Are you sure you don’t want to take these off?” he’d asked.

“Uh-huh,” had been her breathless answer, her eyes closed tight in pleasure beneath her sunglasses. Tristan had pushed a finger inside her, slow and sensuous, monitoring every breath she’d drawn. He had pulled out languidly to add another finger. He’d started driving into her pussy in long, steady strokes, gliding in the moisture that betrayed how damn hot he made her. And she’d ridden his fingers. She had countered his thrusts and fucked him back.

“They’re staying on then?” he’d asked silkily before he’d begun working harder inside her creaming cunt.

“Yes,” was all she remembered wheezing.

“Keep them on then.” His voice had turned husky, the silky tone gone. So were his fingers as the sun suddenly clouded. Tristan had climbed onto the sunbed with her, taken her under him and pushed the thong bikini aside. If she had thought his fingers had felt fine teasing her pussy, his cock pushing into her next had been absolutely fantastic.

He had fucked her wildly, driving pleasure into her as he drew cries out of her until she was coming hard and shouting even harder. She had forgotten to care they were outside. Nothing but the blue skies and the ocean to watch them, no one but Tristan to hear her, and before the trip was over she had willingly taken those bikinis or her dress off for him many more times under the sun and the moon.
