Sexy is What’s Inside

Everyone has a different idea of what defines “sexy” on the outside. Really, it’s what’s inside that counts. Here, let me prove my point:

Sexy?

IMG_6410

Um, no, not really. Unless you have a big green felt fetish, in which case, my apologies. No judgment here.

How about this one?

IMG_4063

Hell yes he’s sexy, but…this is a pumpkin. Again, if that’s your fetish, no judgment.

How about this nerd?

IMG_4547

Um, that’s a dog. Judgment gets a little thin on this one. Then again, I have a shocking pic of a Guinea Pig that I could have used, but last time I posted it, I heard gasps from around the world.

How about this hottie?

IMG_3998

This would be Stud. See? Bwahahahaha!

Nom-Nom

IMG_6083

Yes. Inside and out, no question.

Back to Gumby. Why is he listed? Flexibility? I apparently have a thing for the color green? Nope. Look what’s inside:

Have I made my point?

Sexy Characters

by Lucy Felthouse

I’m a sucker for a sexy character. Be it in a book, film, TV show, whatever. This is why I’m such a fan of Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, True Blood, Arrow, X-Men, The Avengers, Sherlock, too many books to mention… you get the picture.

sherlockbbcI don’t have a type, either, apparently. Some of the characters I like are tall, others short (okay, mainly tall). Short hair, long hair, blue eyes, green eyes, brown eyes. Big nose, small nose. Wicked cheekbones (yeah, okay, I have one in particular in mind here). For me, it’s not just about the looks – it’s about attitude. There’s something about each of those characters that floats my boat, though I can’t always put my finger on it.

So when it came down to writing my first solo novel, Stately Pleasures, I had a couple of my favourite celebrity crushes in mind. I figured if I could visualise the sexy men in my book and found them attractive, then my female lead was bound to fancy the pants off them. It worked – Alice was attracted to Jeremy Davenport (who has an uncanny resemblance to Jeremy Renner) pretty much as soon as she met him. Her attraction to Ethan Hayes (looks rather like Jared Padalecki) wasn’t quite so instantaneous, but when it hit Alice, it hit her hard.

Naturally, it wasn’t enough for me and my lead female character to fancy the men. Readers had to like them, too. And fortunately, the feedback and reviews I’ve had so far indicate that they do – hurrah! Probably my favourite comment so far is that I had basically written one woman’s fantasy. Which she then followed up by saying as soon as she finished the book, her boyfriend grabbed it and was reading it instead of playing on his Playstation! What better compliment is there?!

For a long time, I’ve had someone visualised for my male characters as I write them. Someone I find hot, and it’s always worked for me. I don’t necessarily describe them down to the last millimetre, which is okay, as that’s when you run the risk of turning someone off. Their personalities just seem to come naturally as I write and again, so far I seem to be doing okay with capturing sexy characters with sexy, attractive attitudes.

I know I’ll never please everyone – it’s impossible. But if I can please myself, then finish a book and send it out into the world, then that’s half the battle over. A hot fictional guy is no good if he only ever lives on a writer’s computer, is he?

Happy Reading!

Man Candy – Tom Hiddleston

Hi everyone,

Oh, I do love me some eye candy 😀  A couple of my favourites just now (if you want to see them all, go here, but you have been warned, you’ll be there a while!) are Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston. They’re both not my usual “type” I suppose, as I’m usually quite the fan of muscles and well-built chaps. But while Benedict and Tom are not scrawny, they’re not big, either. But it doesn’t matter, not one bit. They’re both tall and damn sexy, it has to be said. Tom in particular keeps sucking me into YouTube for more goodness. My favourite video, so far, is below. He’s in a suit, he’s got almost ginger hair, and that smile… *swoons* oh yeah, and he says some very funny things and he DANCES. I know some folks won’t be able to see this video due to copyright and stuff, so if you can’t, head to YouTube and search for “tom hiddleston chatty man” – you won’t regret it 😉 Oh, the hotness. I’m totally going to be writing him into one of my stories soon, it’s just got to be done.

Excerpt:

Why don’t you go get off your feet until dinner.  I need to go shower real quick.  Dalton did you call Ulysses about getting Devonshire’s shoe replaced?”

Just like that the moment was broken as Tanner and Dalton discussed a horse that had thrown a shoe that day.  Clint gave her a wink, but he went back to working on the food prep, leaving her to do as she was told and head into the living room.

She sunk into the butter soft leather of the sofa, sighing with pleasure as she put the flower on the end table next to her, and took a sip of wine.  Flavors exploded on her tongue, and the mellow scent of berry filled her nose.  There was nothing of interest on T.V.  so she stopped it on a music station, tapping her foot as Jason Derulo sang about “The Other Side.”

Her eyes drifted shut, and she let herself be swallowed up in the lyrics of the song and the uplifting dance beat.  She wondered if she could handle a fling with one of the three Keegan brothers.  It wasn’t like she would be here forever, in a couple of weeks Rachel’s mom would go back to Oklahoma, and Zoey would be able to move in there if she hadn’t found her own place yet.  Living on the Triple T she didn’t have any rent to pay so she should be able to save up the money for a deposit pretty quickly.  What if until then, she let herself be seduced by Clint, or even Dalton?  There was no way she would offer herself up to any of them after being turned down so flatly by Tanner and then Dalton, but if she just flirted back a bit, maybe…

A sudden sinking of the sofa cushion next to her, made her jump and her eyes flew open to find Clint settling in beside her.

“Whoa, sorry angel.  I didn’t mean to scare you.  I seem to have a particular talent for that.” His arm went around the back of the couch just like Dalton’s always seemed to do when he sat with her.

“It’s alright, I guess I was lost in thought and didn’t hear you come in.” She reached for the remote and turned the volume down on the T.V.  as Christina Aquilera started singing “Your Body.”

“That’s a good song.” Clint said, stealing the remote from her hand to turn it up just as she sang about finishing off on her own.  What a fitting song for the thoughts she had been having a moment ago.  “You know, I got to meet her once.”

“Who?”

“Christina.  I guess meet isn’t quite the right word.  I got to park her car once when I was working as a valet.”

Zoey laughed out loud, and Clint’s eyes widened.  “You have got to do that more often.  You’re beautiful when you laugh.”

A snort slipped out and she shook her head.  “And you are a Grade A flirt.”

“Grade A, huh? You really think so? I’d rather be a Grade A prime piece of meat in your eyes, I think.” He wiggled his eyebrows sending Zoey into another round of giggles.  She whacked his shoulder with the back of her hand, and he grabbed it in both of his, holding it over his heart.  “You’re breaking my heart, angel.  And here I thought we were going to get married and have a dozen kids together.”

“A dozen?  You have to be joking?  I can’t have a dozen kids, I would swell up to the size of a house!” She teased, and he tugged on her hand pulling her against his chest.

“Perfect, as long as you’re mine I don’t care how big you are.”

Clint swooped in for a kiss before she could respond, and she melted against him.  Tomato sauce and man was all she tasted as his tongue swept past the barrier of her lips and stroked over her own.  One of his hands slipped from between them to cup the back of her head, holding her in place for his mastery, and she lost herself in him.

Someone moaned, and then whimpered, and she was startled to realize it was her.  Her hands flexed against his chest, fisting into the fabric of his t-shirt, and kneading the muscles of his pecks as she kissed him back.

A sharp slap on her raised ass broke them apart, and she turned to glare at Dalton, still breathing hard.  “What the hell?”

“Save a little sugar for me, pretty lady.  Clint here has to go check his masterpiece.  The timer just went off.” Dalton looked way too pleased to have come upon her making out with his little brother, and she couldn’t decide if she was irritated or if she wanted to kiss him so that she could compare the two again.

Her lips tingled, and her pussy clenched when Clint brushed a sweet kiss over her mouth and then swaggered into the kitchen leaving her alone with Dalton.  She turned a hard look on his grinning face.

“You enjoyed that.”

He gave her an innocent look, “What? The interrupting part, or the part where I got to watch from the doorway as you tried to swallow Clint’s tongue down your throat?”

Face flaming, Zoey glared at him with all of the intensity she could muster.  It might have helped if he was wrong.  “You know a gentleman wouldn’t point those things out.”

Dalton’s laugh boomed through the room, and she fought to keep a straight face, “What ever gave you the idea that I was a gentleman, pretty lady?”

Soap Operas, Smut, and Sisterhood!

You know what my favorite part of writing is? Well, other than the hot bi guys who share and the whole falling in love and living happily ever after part. I love, love, love getting to write a cast of characters. You might be wondering what I mean by a ‘cast of characters.’ Well, I am referring to the supporting people in the story. It’s kind of like a soap opera (cheesy comparison, I know)—there’s one couple (in my case, grouping) you focus on, but there are a whole host of characters surrounding them. And you can’t help but eat these people all up—even though, in the scheme of things, they’re not really the reason you’re watching the show in the first place.

Now I know most consider these people to be ‘secondary characters.’ But for me, they’re not. These people are essential—to the story and the other characters. See, we don’t live in a world where it is all about us and our significant others. We have families and friends. And while we often want to strangle them (or at least, I do), we love them. We want them to be a part of our lives. So how could I write a book where there were no relationships outside the ménage? I couldn’t. And frankly, I wouldn’t.

That being said, I don’t write non-sexual relationships because I have to. No, I find great pleasure in writing relationships that I would love to have myself. For example, in my Sweet Serenity series, there are three women who have the kind of friendship I would have given anything to have growing up. Jaycee, Katie-Anne, and Shannon have been friends through thick and thin for as long as they can remember. And nothing and no one could tear them apart. To me, that’s a true gift. In The Doms of Kinky, Kansas, there is a social circle that I find fascinating. Now, I haven’t had time to reveal the inner complexities of this group’s relationship to everyone. Yet. After all, I have only written one book in that series. But still, these people have a deep, rich history. It’s not like they just magically showed up in Kinky and Poof! they’re friends. No, these people are with the people they care about. They came to town to be with these people, not just to move to a place where BDSM and ménage relationships run rampant. I find that level of commitment and unity in a friendship to be a true treasure.

As you can imagine, my next release Their Luscious Dream (Love in Luscious, KS #2) is no different. I have a huge cast of characters. Probably the biggest group yet. But it isn’t about the size. It’s about the selfless, unconditional, generous love they share with each other—all of them. They don’t say that Love knows no boundaries in Luscious for nothing. Everyone (yes, everyone) cares about everyone else. It doesn’t matter if its the sexy beasts who run The Luscious Lady (yeah, you know who I’m talking about…Sam, Brett, and Ethan), the hippie lady living in a tent in the park, the incense-loving man who drives the vintage VW bus as a cab, or the full-grown flower children that run the Paisley House. They all have an emotional connection. Even the boho trio who own and operate Nature’s Garden get in on the love. (No, not that kind of love, you naughty, naughty man or wicked, wicked woman!)

Of course, like in Serenity, I have a soft spot for three women in particular in Luscious. Now don’t get me wrong. These three are nothing like Jaycee, Katie-Anne, and Shannon. They aren’t supposed to be. No, these three are sisters. But they’re not just any sisters. They’re the sisters I would have wanted had I not been an only child. They are smart and sassy, smart-mouthed and perverted. They pick and prod at each other. They joke and play pranks—like in this scene from Their Luscious Dream:

“Excuse me, Tate,” Haven said, her voice sounding as smooth as melted butter and as sweet as candy. “Can I have this?” When her best friend nodded, she grabbed Harper’s made-from-scratch muffin off his plate and threw it at Athena’s head.

Athena bent sideways, effectively dodging the projectile whole grain bread, then laughed her ass off. Harper and Haven joined in, and half of the damned café clapped as though they were at the opera rather than in a café with deviant workers.

And they’re completely, totally, utterly honest with each other—brutally so. They’ve been known to call each other on their bullshit a lot. Like here in Their Luscious Dream:

“Peckerface,” Athena muttered, using Haven’s favorite insult when someone pissed her off.

“Hey, that’s my word,” Haven grumbled as she stole a banana from Tate’s plate. Her best friend didn’t even bat an eyelash at her theft. “And you can’t call Jagger that. He’s my brother, and I love him.”

Harper snorted. “Didn’t you call him a peckerfaced fucknugget last week?”

“He called me a name first,” Haven defended before biting into the banana in her hand.

“Yeah, he called you Haven Moon Kelley,” Harper countered before snagging Haven’s banana and taking a bite of her own.

Grinning, Haven waved her hand dismissively. “Don’t get technical, sis. Haven Moon Kelley is a name.”

Harper threw her hands up in a dramatic display of exasperation. “It’s your name!”

Haven attempted to take back her banana. But Harper dodged her.

For all their posturing, bickering, and blustering, these three would go to the end of the world for each other. They have each others’ back. Like in this teeny-tiny snippet (if you would call it that) from Their Luscious Dream:

 A hush rippled through the room. All eyes turned on Athena, who paled visibly. “I, uh, don’t know how to say this.”

“Say what?” Haven bent at the waist and propped her elbows on the stainless steel countertop. “You killed someone, and you need us to hide the body. If so, we’re going to need some supplies.” She hummed. “Wonder if Maverick keeps a wood chipper at The Catch All.”

In all honesty, I can’t help but feel a twinge of jealousy for their sisterhood. I wish I had that kind of relationship. But since I wasn’t blessed with sisters, I have found that living vicariously through these three has been the most beautiful (and hilarious) non-bedroom, non-sexual-love experience of my writing life—to date. I just hope that the people who read this book will feel a kinship with these three, too. And if not them, someone else. After all, I’m a character driven writer. And as a character writer, I want everyone to love the characters as much as I do. Okay, that might not be possible because I’m a bit…attached to them. LOL. But if one person out there cares for the characters even a tenth as much as I do, then I’ve done my job right.

So now that I’ve teased you, scroll down a little bit, and you’ll get a bigger and better glimpse into the world of Athena, Harper, and Haven!

Until next time…

Love and cherries,

-Mia

Their Luscious Dream (Love in Luscious, KS 2) photo TheirLusciousDream_Full_zps4b8f8d80.jpg

PRE-ORDER NOW!

BLURB

Athena Xanthopoulos is on a mission. She’s moved to Luscious, Kansas to reconnect with the parents she doesn’t remember and meet the siblings she’d only dreamed of having. But she didn’t count on finding men like Sam Carrington, Ethan Bartlett, and Brett Monroe.

Sam, Ethan, and Brett love each other, and they’re committed to their marriage. Yet still, they dream of a family that includes a wife and children. Only they believe their dream is just that—a dream.

Then Athena walks in.

Now the men who’d felt their dream was out of reach see babies in the mysterious blonde’s eyes. And the woman who’s lived life as an outsider yearns to belong.

But Athena’s conservative childhood tells her what she craves is wrong. Can the men convince her sharing isn’t wrong but oh-so-deliciously right? Or will she hold onto what she knows, dashing the men’s dreams and dooming herself to a lifetime without the men she’s grown to love?

NOTE: This book is not stand-alone. To find out how the dream began for Sam, Brett, and Ethan check out Luscious Beginnings (MMM).

Special 69 Shades of Smut Excerpt

Athena whirled around. “You’re like a dog with a bone.”

“What’s with all this animal talk?” Harper asked as she returned from delivering food to one of the tables. “I hear one of you yapping about cats in heat and the other blabbering about dogs with bones. I don’t get it.”

“You don’t have to get it.” Haven tugged on her sister’s recently dyed hair. “I never get your crazy hair, so we’re even.” Letting go of the rainbow-colored strands, she winked. “I have to get back to work anyway. I would really hate to burn my buns.”

“I’ll burn your buns.” Athena’s lips tipped up into a smile. “With a hot baking sheet to the butt.”

Like Athena had hoped, her sarcasm didn’t fall on deaf ears.

“Excuse me, Tate,” Haven said, her voice sounding as smooth as melted butter and as sweet as candy. “Can I have this?” When her best friend nodded, she grabbed Harper’s made-from-scratch muffin off his plate and threw it at Athena’s head.

Athena bent sideways, effectively dodging the projectile whole grain bread, then laughed her ass off. Harper and Haven joined in, and half of the damned café clapped as though they were at the opera rather than in a café with deviant workers.

Only one person didn’t seem amused in any way, shape, or form—her brother, Jagger Blue Star Kelley. He was scowling at them from his counter on the opposite side of the serving area. As usual, Mr. Stick Up His Ass had his eyes trained on her. Not that that was surprising. He didn’t hide his distaste for her or her antics. “Get to work,” he barked.

Athena knew he was talking to her, not Harper or Haven. And he made it known to everyone in the dining room when he turned to the two sisters he’d grown up with and said in a much softer voice, “You, too.”

Athena didn’t flinch at his obvious snub. She didn’t even acknowledge him. She spun on her heel and headed to the sink where she washed her hands with water that was painfully hot. When she was done, she wiped her reddened hands and got back to work.

A short time later, Harper and Haven returned to her side. Both of them patted on her back, the strikes gentle and surprisingly soothing, and she sighed.

“Ignore Jagger. He’s such a douchenozzle sometimes,” Haven said.

Harper was far more defensive of their older brother. “He just doesn’t know you. Once he does, he’ll warm up to you. He’ll love you. Like we do.”

Guilt speared Athena in the chest. She should tell them who she was. She should—right here, right now, this very second. She even opened her mouth, but nothing came out.

Harper touched her chin then helped her shut her mouth. “It’s okay. We know. You don’t like him any more than he likes you.”

Wasn’t that the truth? She couldn’t stand Jagger. He treated her like crap. Every day, he tried to fire her for one reason or another. And every night at closing, he bitched at her for something she’d done. She was doing this wrong. Or she was doing that wrong. No matter what, she was in the wrong.

“Peckerface,” Athena muttered, using Haven’s favorite insult when someone pissed her off.

“Hey, that’s my word,” Haven grumbled as she stole a banana from Tate’s plate. Her best friend didn’t even bat an eyelash at her theft. “And you can’t call Jagger that. He’s my brother, and I love him.”

Harper snorted. “Didn’t you call him a peckerfaced fucknugget last week?”

“He called me a name first,” Haven defended before biting into the banana in her hand.

“Yeah, he called you Haven Moon Kelley,” Harper countered before snagging Haven’s banana and taking a bite of her own.

Grinning, Haven waved her hand dismissively. “Don’t get technical, sis. Haven Moon Kelley is a name.”

Harper threw her hands up in a dramatic display of exasperation. “It’s your name!”

Voicing Your Sexual Desires

Recently I was part of a group discussion on what women want from their partners that they aren’t getting. There were the expected answers….time, attention, Domination, submission, oral sex….but then there were some unusual ones. One woman wants her husband to role play, another wants to try knife play, while another just wants to try anything other than the missionary position.  This got my mind whirring.

Why is it so difficult to voice the desires we have? We spend hours sharing our dreams, wishes, and plans for the future, but when our man is pulling our clothes off, we suddenly get shy and embarrassed. What happens in that instant to take a woman out of the fog of sexual desire and make her afraid to share her secret needs?

Society is slowly opening up to alternate sexual preferences like BDSM, furry fandom, and even plural relationships, so it would seem that we should be more relaxed about communicating those secret fantasies with our partner(s). In reality, the opposite is true.

The women I spoke with were afraid of judgment from their significant other. Afraid that there would be shame and humiliation at admitting a desire to try something “kinky” and new.  And the internet is full of people who are hiding their innermost sexual desires in their real life, but carry on a double life as a kinkster or phreak after the kiddies are in bed and their partner is otherwise occupied.

In my newest book, Dreams of the Wolf, my heroine is torn between the reality that she has met her mates, and giving up her dream of independent freedom. She is inexperienced, but finds pleasure in the experience of her partners who aren’t afraid to explore her boundaries. My question to you, is how successful have you been at voicing your sexual needs to your partner?

After you answer that, take a moment to preorder Dreams of the Wolf!

“Pretty in pink aren’t you, peaches? You smell like candy,” Bryson said just before he flicked his tongue into her folds.

She might have screamed, but she wasn’t sure, in her head she could only hear the racing of her heart, and the rush of blood in her ears. The moment Bryson’s tongue slid up to stroke over her tiny clit, she arched off of the bed. Thomas pressed her back down, and moved from kissing her lips, to sucking at her nipples again. He alternated between her breasts, pinching one, then nipping the other, all while Bryson licked at her cunt.

A tsunami of sensation was building in her belly, and its center was between her quivering thighs. Bryson blew on her hot skin, and then chuckled when she growled at him. “That’s it, peaches, come for me. Let me taste your sweet juice.”

It broke over her, blocking out the rest of his words, and everything else that might have happened around her. All she knew was that her body exploded in an orgasm unlike anything she had ever been able to accomplish with her own fingers. Her pussy muscles clenched and unclenched inside of her so hard that she could feel her abs tightening with the motion. When she managed to pry her eyelids open again, it was to find Bryson with his chin resting on her pubic bone and her cream all over his lips, while Thomas sat above them, grinning at them both.

“Holy shit,” she whispered.

“That was fucking incredible,” Thomas said, and she giggled.

“You should have felt it from this end,” she said playfully, and Bryson slapped her thigh gently.

“Oh we will, love. No doubt about that!”

Bryson moved to tug his jeans off, exposing his thick long erection to her curious gaze. For the first time since meeting him she let her eyes run over his form unabashedly. He was gorgeous, built of muscle and sinew, and rock hard from head to toe. Her fingers itched to run over every dip and curve, but more than anything she wanted to get her hand wrapped around the length of him.

The two men moved without any conversation, switching spots so that Thomas was at the foot of the bed. He dropped to his knees and tugged her down until her butt rested on the edge of the mattress and her legs hung over his shoulders. Eye level with her flooded cunt, he winked up at her. “My turn, little one. I’m going to stretch you a little before I take you, I don’t want to hurt you.”

She nodded, and then looked for Bryson. He was lounging next to her, with his body curved slightly around her head. His cock was within reach now, and she didn’t hesitate to reach for him. “Whoa, getting brave now, peaches?”

His taunt hit its mark because she narrowed her eyes at him, and tugged him closer. Just as she licked his tip, Thomas licked her pussy, and she jumped. “Easy! I don’t want to lose a chunk of me because Tommy-boy is playing with your girlie bits!”

KJ started giggling, “Girlie bits?”

“Really, Bry? You have to make her laugh now? I didn’t tell jokes while you were eating her pussy, did I?” Thomas said, his hot breath on her wetness making her shiver.

“Sorry man, but I have to protect myself.”

KJ licked at Bryson’s cockhead again. “I think I can handle it, but then again, I get lockjaw occasionally…”

The look on Bryson’s face was priceless, and Thomas let out a loud laugh. “She’s kidding, Bry! Now, fuck her face!”

KJ’s stomach clenched at Thomas’s dirty command. Did he realize how much his tone of voice turned her on? She wanted to do whatever would make him happy when he spoke like that, and she turned her attention back to the task at hand. Bryson’s precum was salty, and slightly musky, but it wasn’t bad. She found herself going back to trace that little line around his head with her tongue. He seemed to be enjoying it, as he pressed his cock closer to her and threaded his fingers into her blonde hair.

“Suck on it, peaches. Gently, now…”

She took it into her mouth, carefully covering her teeth with her lips, and applied a little bit of suction. His growls of pleasure encouraged her to keep going, and she took it as far as possible, choking slightly when he pressed against her tonsils.

“Don’t force it, love. Take what you can, but don’t push yourself. Just having you touch me is good enough for me. Fuck that’s beautiful.” Bryson’s head was thrown back, and his hips rocked gently as he did in fact fuck her face. It was empowering to realize that she could bring this enormous man to his knees with her mouth alone.

Thomas took that moment to slip his finger into her depths, and she gasped. The only fingers that had ever been inside of her were her own, and the feeling of being touched was more erotic than she could have fantasized.

“You like that, little one? Your greedy pussy is sucking my finger in, maybe you need more than one?” He pushed another finger into her tight passage, and she felt her body clamp down on him as she groaned around the mouthful of cock she had. If his fingers felt this magnificent how was it going to feel to be full of his cock?

Shake that A$$!

I have a secret passion for dirty booty-shakin’ music. I love the music that my parents and their parents would probably hate, and I adore the music that would make my kids shudder to see me dancing to it. You know which music I mean. The stuff like:

Dirty          S&M         Low

There is nothing like the environment of the club dance floor. Lights flashing, the bass thumping in your chest, and sweaty bodies grinding against each other. It’s an experience I miss now that I have three little ones at home. Clubbin’ is not exactly on the weekend agenda anymore.

But, my favorite thing in the world to do when I’m all alone at home, is dance to this kind of ass shaking beat. I think that EVERYONE should have a personal dance party every now and then.  Whether or not you like Hip Hop, Country, Swing, or Square Dancing. It’s a great exercise and it releases tons of endorphins that mimic the same ones released during sex.

For me, the bumping beat reminds me of an erotic romance story. The way the music ebbs and flows encouraging sensual movement inspires me to write passionate strong women who know what they want and reach for it with both hands. I find myself using a lot of music in my stories, and I would love to hear your favorite songs!

I’m sharing my personal list of booty shakin favs. They range from hip hop to R&B to Country, so there is something for everyone!  Once you’ve listened to them, drop to the bottom of the post and share your favorite “Shake that A$%” music!  SHOW ME WHATCHA WORKING WITH!

Shake That          Bump Bump Bump          HonkeyTonk-BaDonka-Donk          SexyBack

Hips Don’t Lie          Pony          Shake it for Me          Smack That

Buttons          1-2 Step          Naughty

So today on your way to change the laundry, or get the mail from the mail box….just let loose!

Shake your groove thing…and as always Live, Laugh and Love like today is your only chance! ~Lori King

Devin and Damon Gray claim that they are alpha leaders of a pack of werewolves, and that she is destined to be their mate. Her logical nature resists this unreal situation, but her body craves their every touch. Struggling with unresolved pain from her past and her need for her own identity, she has no desire to be their house wolf—until another wolf pack’s alpha threatens their lives and relationship with a challenge to the death.

Scared to lose the men she has grown to love like she lost her parents, she runs directly into the arms of the lethal alpha challenger, and the brothers must save her before they all wind up dead.

Ryan Taylor-he’s sexy as hell and a soft-spoken sweetheart

Photobucket

I had the pleasure of meeting this sexy South African at Romanticon in Ohio and let me tell you ladies, he is as sweet as he is sexy, and that’s saying a lot. I mean look at the man. He’s not only a model, but also a talented jewlery designer, and I’ll hook you up with a picture of his work and links to his site after he answers a few questions for us and lets us drool over him just a little bit.

Alright, let’s get to the interview.

What do you prefer, studio photo sessions or going on location, and why? Location is always more fun , it’s like going on  a small  exploring adventure – looking for that great spot.

What genre of books do you read? Mostly autobiographies and motivational

What is the most seductive thing a woman has ever done for you? Opened a beer with her teeth or what was left of them and passed it seductively over – that got me fired up…

What would you rather be doing other than modeling? Honestly I have never seen myself as a model..its a fun addition to life but I’m doing what I have always wanted and that is to turn great ideas into something tangible , something  real.

If you could write a book and place yourself on the cover what would the book be about? The book would be titled ‘Your Vision Under Lock and Key’ meaning have a dream and go do it – keep that vision real and secure all the way to the end..

Have you ever dated a woman older than you? Yep, looking back my relationships have always been with older woman.

Hmmmm. Not sure that I can open a beer with my teeth, but after this I might try…

Here’s a shot of some of the armo bands Ryan designs and makes, and links to his website and Facebook pages. Say hi, leave him a comment and he’ll stop by and respond if he can today.

Photobucket

His accessories are mostly based on ancient Roman times and that there are a ton of new additions coming real soon  – as in rings, necklaces, bags, caps, wallets etc . Its the start of an entire range of just accessories.
