My Big Question Is:


Please help me welcome Anne Lange to LSWD today! She’s pretty damn funny, and is here to share her thoughts about one of those questions we all ponder from time to time. 🙂 I’m very pleased to announce that Anne is going to be joining the team here soon as a regular contributor. 
As I was standing in the shower this morning I had an epiphany. Well, more like a question…why did God put hair on my legs? I mean, I’m only going to take it off anyway. So, why put it there in the first place?
It’s not like it’s something every person has…kids don’t…different cultures have different variations on the amount and colour of hair we have on our bodies.
It’s not a man/woman thing because some men have hair in places most women don’t.
And yes, we all have hair everywhere, but let’s face it…in the places it’s not typically found (i.e. our stomach) it’s generally very light and very thin, so obviously he was able to pick and choose.
Therefore, why couldn’t he have made it light and thin on women’s legs or non-existent altogether? Huh? That’s my big question.
Some may say he didn’t know we were going to spend the rest of our lives shaving it off…but I would say…doesn’t he know the plan? I thought he did…and if he knows the plan then he must know that in this day and age, efficiency, productivity, and time management would be important to us.
Clearly my time would be better spent if for efficiency sake I didn’t have to waste time shaving the unwanted hair off each morning, meaning I could be doing more productive things in the morning…like eating breakfast before I run out the door because now I’m late because I had to take the time to shave my legs…..I’m just saying!
Food for thought.
P.S. I think this puts the question of his gender to rest. If he was a woman, the only place you’d find hair on our bodies would be our head.

Is he a Heartbreaker? #romance #giveaway


Thanks to Carrie Ann Ryan for organizing this amazing hop!

Are our heroes heartthrobs or heartbreakers? Or are they just the same thing? Yummy right? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner for this blog hop and we’re gearing up to see what exactly is a heartbreaker. Is the song playing in your head like mine? “Cuz he’s a heartbreaker!” We love those sexy men, but what about those times in the story when they aren’t perfect. Because come on, we know they aren’t perfect. What makes those men heartbreakers? What can those guys do to make it better? Is there a way to grovel? Come on! Tell me about your heartbreaker!!

Oh, those naughty boys. Breaking hearts left and right. I think in my books, my biggest heart breaker so far has got to be Craig from “Deployment Gifts.” (My short story in the Halloween Heat V Anthology). Oh that Craig. You see, he and Krista have been going in circles for years, with neither really willing to let go….and neither ready to take that final step.

But when things finally come to a head, well, let’s just say that Craig knows how to grovel. In the best way possible. 🙂

For this hop, I’m (Jennifer James) giving away a $5 Amazon giftcard to one lucky person who hits it in the Rafflecopter! To be considered for the Grand Prize drawing you *MUST* leave a blog post comment. The giveaway is open internationally, except for the swag pack, which will be open in the US/Canada 

Deployment Gifts Blurb: 

This Halloween, Krista is determined to make sure  her on again off again lover Craig gets a treat he’ll never forget. She’s decided its time to move on with her life and forget the sexy Army sergeant for good; but not before one last encounter that will involve her college roommate and sometimes lover Jade. Craig likes surprises, and he’s got one in store for Krista as well.

My favorite Heartbreaker from my published books is the weredragon Kiellen from “Safe Heart”. He wants Jaden, knows she wants  him, but refuses her as a means of protecting her from a culture and government that forbids their love because she’s a vampire. By saving her, and himself, from the death penalty, has he doomed them to a worse fate?

#Author Sabrina Garie: Hexing the HOT Into Your #Romance


Woohoo! It’s my critter pal Sabrina! I’m so excited that her new book is out and available for everyone to read and drool over. I got to crit this baby, and let me say that you all are in for a treat. 🙂 This is great stuff, and totally indicative of the type of amazing story you’ll be seeing from Sabrina in the future. She’s a new talent to watch for sure.

Hexing the hot into your romance:  A fire witch reveals her secrets

 

Being here with my critter Jennifer, one of the hottest writers on the planet, just knocks my…let ’s say socks, off.  Thanks for hosting me babe. ***You are totally welcome! –JJ*** My story Fires of Justice is part of Ellora’s Cave Hex Appeal series, which is a cornucopia of sexy witches and warlocks using their powers for naughty.  So I’m here to talk about how a witch hooks her man.

Eye of newt and bat wings are one way to brew up a romance.  But there are a few other tricks we mortals might be able to borrow along the way.

What hexes did my little witch, Calista, use to entice Cullen, her shifter?  Let’s peak into their bedroom.

 

Sex hex 1:       Let him know you want him.  Female desire is sexy.

When Calista’s aroused, Cullen explodes.

She may be playing cautious, but her scent, fiery and feminine, wet and floral, trumpeted just how much she wanted him. Her barely concealed passion scorched through the remaining ice, released his heart and hurled his appetites into free fall. His pants tightened and chafed around his rigid, throbbing cock.

 

Sex hex 2: Take an active role in foreplay.

Here’s our happy couple in the bedroom, for the first time.  Cullen’s taken off his shirt. Calista demands more.

“Keep going,” she urged, unable to keep her eyes to herself.

“Like what you see?” Button popped, zipper released, nothing underneath.

Yowza, she liked.

“You want it? Take it.” A rumble in his throat, he craved this as much as she did.

Sex Hex 3:      Tease and show no mercy.

Calista has this down to an art form. Cullen has no chance.

Skirt and boots off, she sat on the edge of her bed and rolled down each thigh-high to reveal tanned, toned flesh bit by bit. Naked, she lay back, head on hands, and opened her legs, offering up her clit for his next move.

 “Argenta’s boots, you’re not making this easy, witch.

Sex Hex 4:      Alcohol is good.

Calista gets Cullen in the mood.

 

“Take a seat. I need a drink, I’m getting you one and you’re going to drink it. You so need to loosen up.”

 

Sex Hex 5:      Don’t take no for an answer.

Calista knows what she wants and goes after it.

 

Calista kissed him fiercely, straddling her legs around him, rubbing until his cock stiffened.

“Argenta’s boots, this is not a good time.”

“Please. I think we need to do this. I want this.” She unzipped his jeans and massaged him expertly until he threw his head back and groaned.

Being a fire witch, Calista is pretty good at this sex stuff, it’s built into her elemental DNA as it were.  We all have places where we shine.  I’m giving away a free copy of my ebook (it is ebook only) to one commenter. How do you shine?—share one amazing thing about yourself.  Feeling shy?  I’ll start. I’m an awesome problem solver—I love puzzles and a problem is a puzzle.  Go on brag a little. You deserve it–we all do every now and then.  Thanks for dropping by.

Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…

Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.

Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.

Milly Taiden

Paranormal Erotic Romance (Werewolves)

 

Blurb:

Being held captive for winter never felt so good.

Lili is on her way to her cousin’s wedding when she thinks she hit a man in the road. Leaving the safety of her car to check on him turns out the be a big mistake, and pretty soon Lili is being abducted and held against her will by a super-sexy wolf who her body longs to touch. But just because he’s hot doesn’t mean she’s going to remain a captive.

Cade is not just an alpha, he’s a very wealthy man, used to getting what he wants. So when he attempts to abduct his ex-friend’s fiancé, he doesn’t expect to wind up with the wrong woman. Just how did he wind up with the maid of honor? And why does the woman melt every inch of him? But when she escapes, real danger awaits her beyond his protection. Cade must convince her to see beyond his deception if he has any chance to keep her alive.

Excerpt:

He grabbed her outstretched hand and stood. She twined her fingers into his hair and pulled his head down. Her boldness sparked a roaring inside him. Passionate urgency spread through his limbs. She licked his lips and rubbed her tongue over his. Blood pounded in his ears as arousal swelled inside him.

“Argh!” She growled at his lip and tugged at his shirt, wanting it off.

He grinned, pulled the material over his head, and left his chest and upper body devoid of clothing.

“Yesss,” she moaned. Tracing every line of his chest with her fingertips, she slowly moved her nimble hands down his torso.

“Oh, baby.” He groaned with each kiss of her lips on his chest.

She licked his nipples, first one and then the other, sucked the tiny bud into her mouth and twirled her tongue on the flat disc.

“Lili,” he groaned.

Moving his hands to the table’s edge, she silently commanded him to hang on. He watched her lick, kiss, and nip his pecs, abs, and down to his belly button. There, she dipped her tongue into the hole and bit down while gazing up at him. Aroused amber eyes glittered at him. She was so beautiful. His cock jerked as soon as her hands gripped his base and squeezed. He hissed out a breath.

He held on to the table’s edge so hard he heard cracking of wood. She did a slow pump up his entire length. Then he watched her use the moisture dripping from his slit as lubrication. With one long lick, she worked her way from his balls, up the throbbing underside vein, and to the crown of his cock. Once there she licked his mushroomed head in a circle and followed that by sucking his dick into her mouth.

Suck after suck, she raised the bar on his pleasure. She jerked and licked with enthusiasm, her lips tight and wet around his cock. He loved listening to her soft little moans when he thrust into her mouth. Sparks gathered at his spine.

He drew her off his cock and kissed her swollen lips. Shifting positions, he pulled the pajama top and bottom off her body in quick moves. She leaned back on the edge of the heavy wood table. Warm, curvy flesh filled his hands when he grabbed her by the waist, lifted her to the smooth wood table, and sat her on the edge.

“Lean back, love.”

She glanced over her shoulder, but no dishes sat on that side of the long table. He watched her lean until she was held up by her elbows. She peered at him with passion-dazed eyes.

He did a visual tour down her curvy body to her glistening sex. She spread her legs wide, bending them at the knees and giving him full view of her pink pussy. With a deep inhale, he drew in her scent and growled. Cinnamon and her musky aroused honey filled his lungs. His cock jerked, needing inside her. Moisture dripped from her slit, crawling down to her ass. He glanced up and caught her nibbling her lip. Their eyes locked.

“Lick me, Cade. Make me come,” she pleaded.

Cade pulled a chair and sat down to eat…her. Her pussy sat before him, spread wide open and glistening with honey. He curled his arms around her thighs, moved her legs over his shoulders, and took a swipe up her swollen pussy lips.

She inhaled a sharp breath and moaned. “More.”

He licked up her trimmed curls and sucked on her juices. She whimpered, wiggling her hips in his grip. Unhurried, he licked around the tight pleasure bundle he knew would be her undoing. He swiped his tongue up her asshole and to her sex. Drinking in the honey dripping on his tongue, he plunged his tongue into her cunt. He growled, and she jerked.

“Yesss.” She panted and moaned all the while lying flat on the table.

His cock was rock hard from tasting, smelling, and listening to her. With one hand he grasped his cock. She grabbed hold of his hair and rode his face. Over and over he fucked her with his tongue and jerked himself at the same time. Precum dripped in heavy amounts from his cock. Fuck, she was so hot. Moans, pants, and ragged breathing were all he heard from her.

Her legs shook, breathing hitched, and whimpering increased. “God, Cade. I’m so close…”

Letting go of his shaft, he held her open and sucked down on her clit. She tensed, shuddered, and screamed. Her body bucked and dripped wet heat over his lips.

“Oh my, Cade.” She shook every few seconds. Pleasure filled him at the reverent way she said his name. He chuckled and stood. She peered up at him with a look so hot it almost made him come.

He lifted her off the table and helped her to her feet.

She turned on the table and splayed her upper body over the same spot she’d been lying on. Then she wiggled her ass at him. “Fuck me, baby.”
