Jeff walked past the set of desks and headed to round the corner when he heard what sounded like soft moans coming from the next corner. His immediate reaction made him think maybe someone was in trouble but as he approached he heard what were surely not moans from someone who needed any assistance.

He proceeded with caution and couldn't believe what he finally saw. More like watching from afar. Curious, he peeked from the corner and thought his sight was deceiving him. There in front of him, against the wall, was Nico.

Her eyes were closed and her white blouse open, exposing the gorgeous curves of her body. The white bra she wore was slightly pulled down and it accentuated her voluptuous breasts. One of her hands roamed her body as the other tormented her nipples.

He knew he shouldn't stand there watching her but he couldn't help himself. She looked so ravishing. As her hand moved across her body he noticed something shiny. He had to do a double take when he realized what it was.

Nico had a nipple ring. He couldn't believe it. The beauty before his eyes surprised him, not just with her unexpected body jewelry but also by what he observed her do. Silently he stood watching her hand caress her body. Softly she bit her lower lip and another moan escaped her lips.

The hushed sound from her lips was torture to him. Blood rushed straight to his cock that hardened until it strained against his jeans. Tightly clenching his jaw he stifled a grunt from escaping his own mouth. The last thing he wanted was to get caught watching her.

He didn't know how much longer he could stand there and hold out. Every part of him wanted to run over to where she was, pin her against the wall and fuck her in every possible way until both of them were spent. He wanted his lips to replace her fingers on her nipples, his tongue, his mouth would do the job and so much more.

Jeff didn't leave as he should have, he stayed looking at her, taking in every part of herself that she revealed to him unknowingly.

Slowly her hands abandoned her nipples and crept lower towards the slits in her black skirt. Her eyes still closed, she gently tugged the skirt up to reveal one gorgeous pair of legs. Once her skirt was high enough, one hand slipped under the black material of her panties as the other returned to her lonely hard nipples that peeked out from her bra.

With every second passing him by, Jeff's heartbeat now beat out of control. His aching cock couldn't take it anymore. All he had to do was unzip his jeans and it could spring free for satisfaction by his own hand. Instead, Jeff tugged on his pants to try to stop the ache.

Sexual Content Warning Labels

Nature’s Pentacle, my first novel, is now available from Loose Id! And it comes with its very own, red hot warning label. Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, dominance, male/male sexual interaction, ménage (m/m/m/f), multiple partners, voyeurism.

In a way, that provides the reader with information nearly as important as the blurb: When witches use sexual energy in a rite to mend the shattered environment, the forces set in motion carry them into a vortex of loss, a sizzling ménage, and finally, to the love they never imagined they’d find.

When I’m shopping for erotic romance online, I frequently read the blurb to see if the story sounds interesting, and then eagerly evaluate the warning label to see what this particular literary erotic feast contains. Let’s face it; those warnings can be--titillating.

Of course, the sexual content warnings also serve to protect those who might be uncomfortable with certain elements. I’m telling my friends to read the warning carefully if they’re thinking about buying Nature's Pentacle, because it’s not “beginner level” erotic romance, and I don’t want to shock or upset anyone who’s not interested in paranormal erotic romance with a bit of an edge.

But for those of us who enjoy a little kink with our fiction, those “Publisher’s Notes” provide a cornucopia of information. So, readers, what do you look for in a warning label? Any favorite “kinks” in erotic romances? And what elements stretch beyond your personal tolerance range?

Happy reading!

Joke of the Day

I don't usually forward jokes, but I have to admit, I found this funny. I don't know who to give credit to, but if anyone knows, props to them. It's great.

It is hard to find a joke today without a dirty word or two in it, but here is one:

Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, are growing in the woods. A small tree begins to grow between them, and the beech says to the birch, "Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?

The birch says he cannot tell.

Just then a woodpecker lands on the sapling.

The birch says, "Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?"

The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree. He replies, "It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch. It is, however, the best piece of ash I have ever put my pecker in."

Now wipe that smile off your face. And pass it on!

Spring--Season of Sex

Do you remember Bambi? I think my earliest recollection of “the birds and the bees” comes from that movie, when all the animals--even the skunk--become smitten with members of the opposite sex. And the next thing you know, there are a lot of baby animated critters running around.

What is it about spring that gets our sap flowing? The equinox isn’t until March 20th, but I’ve got to admit this writer’s feeling a bit frisky. The snow’s melting. The first green shoots are coming up close to the house. The birds are back. And suddenly I just can’t wait to write those hot scenes between Sky and Alec, the heroine and hero in my work in progress.

Somehow, with the warmer weather, my husband doesn’t seem as annoying as he did in late February, when cabin fever reached its unendurable peak in our house. In fact, I’m planning dates, spending more time with him, and he’s looking downright attractive to me. Spring’s on its way, and not a moment too soon!

So, does spring make you feel sexy? Eager to kick up your heels and sow some wild oats? What about impulsive? Anyone have wild spring break memories they want to share? Or are you more the “April is the Cruelest Month” sort? In any case, jump right in and let’s talk about spring.

Happy reading and writing!

I just thought I'd share this so everyone else could gag along with me.

“What’s another word for engorged?”

I thought about calling this “To sex or not to sex”, but then I flashed on a scene in the movie 10 Things I Hate About You where the guidance counselor is doing her damnedest to get through appointments so that she can return to writing her romance novel. Struggling with her narrative and unable to find a suitable adjective to describe Reginald’s “member” she shouts out to her secretary, “What’s another word for engorged?”

Someone asked me recently why I include sex scenes in my novels. Michelle Lauren talked a bit about the mechanics of writing a good love scene and gave out some great tips. I thought I’d write a post addressing why I include love scenes and specifically, why I choose to include graphic love scenes in my books. Why mention Reginald’s “member” engorged or otherwise?
First I will say, for those that aren’t familiar with my work, I don’t claim to write erotica. I would say that I primarily write cross-genre paranormal romance/urban fantasy with erotic content. I love my sexy vamps and yummy werewolves. And, because I love them, I strive to make them as real to the reader as they are to me and…for the most part…real people in healthy relationships have sex.

Could I skip over the sex? Gloss over the sex? Have it occur behind a closed door or embed it in cleverly disguised prose that would make you wonder what the heck was going on? Sure. But why would I want to when I’m writing a story for adults about two adults that are falling in love, discovering one another, and will be making or have made a commitment to live “happily-ever-after together”?

Call me an old fashioned naughty girl, but I just can’t imagine my husband and I living happily-ever-after voluntarily skipping over the sex.

Top Ten Reasons Elves Make The Best Heroes

Hey all,

I'll continue commanding this blog *hehehe* by reposting a blog I did over at the Witchy Chicks back in August. I hope you enjoy it!

Now, normally, I would consider myself open to any and all types of heroes pilling into my fictional bed, with or without the crackers. But I think I’ve come up with the perfect paranormal hero…the Elf hero. Here’s my top ten reasons why:

1. Let’s face it, Aragorn may have been ruggedly handsome, and WWF muscular, but the man looked like he stunk to high heaven. Legolas on the other hand, never had a spot of dirt on his tunic, a stray hair out of his ponytail, or a ring of sweat around his armpits. Hmm, not a tough call as to which one I’d like to curl up with beside the fire after a long day of traveling. ;-)

2. Now while a Were-hero might howl his pain at your death to the full moon, unlike an Elf hero, he’s not going to die over it. Elves have got to be the most romantically developed heroes I’ve ever read about. They practice monogamy religiously, and adultery is flat out unheard of. Their immortal life can only be brought to an end by two things, death in battle or a broken heart. Doesn’t that just make you sigh? (Sorry to say it, but Lestat the vampire would just shrug down at your dead corpse and move on – lol!) Oh, and as a mother of a pre-teen girl, I must say that the fact that Elf heroes consider premarital sex unthinkable, gives the lad major brownie points in my book.

3. They’re gorgeous. Okay, there…I said it. I’m being shallow. But come on, they are flat out beautiful. Athletic, yet aesthetic, lithe yet immensely strong. They possess the kind of beauty that inspires bards, and has poets taking up their quills to write about eternal love. Yup, they are that hot…and remember, I’m all about the hot men. *winks*

4. Elf heroes are ass-kickers and name takers. Whether they are wielding a bow and arrow, a sword or a brace of daggers, an Elfin warrior is last thing you want to see running at you on the battlefield, for it will literally be the last thing you see.

5. They’re noble. As if being gorgeous, athletic and romantic wasn’t enough, they have a conscious and they aren’t afraid to stand by their beliefs, even on pain of death.

6. As if you already couldn’t tell, they’re fiercely loyal and altruistic. Whether you are the heroine, or newfound friend, you have a friend for life when you make one with an Elf hero. He will stand beside you in battle, protect you if you fall, or rescue you if you get captured – and not for money or fame, but because it’s “the right thing to do.”

7. They have “Spidey-sense.” Too cool, huh? I’ve always thought it a great gift to cultivate a sense of one-ness with nature and the Elves have it down to a science, albeit a carefree one. Whether danger lurks around the bend, or our Elf hero’s ladylove finds herself kidnapped by the bad guys – he can use his senses to avert danger, rescue his lady, and save the day. Oh, and he always remembers where you set up camp if you get lost in the forest.

8. Now, this is a personal preference, but Elf heroes are completely hairless, except for the silken strands on their freakishly gorgeous heads. I don’t know about you, but there is just something about running your hands over hard, hot, smooth flesh that does it for me.

9. Next reason, the Elf hero is not sexist. {{gasp, shock}} Crazy, I know. But they believe a woman is just as capable of charging into a battle, as she is a bedroom, which makes them a rare gem when it comes to any man. Granted, that means there aren’t that many Alpha males floating about Elf-land, but I would prefer equality to being smashed over the head with a club and drug into a cave by my hair, any day.

10. Drumroll please…and the last reason that Elves make the best heroes…while I may not have just described the Elf hero you wrote about, read about, fantasize about, or saw in a movie oh, about three or four years ago…Hanarom Avidaul, the hero of my fantasy romance novel, “A Magical Encounter” has all of the characteristics listed above, and boy is he hot. *wriggling brows*

So, come on y'all. What do you think of Elf heroes? Or do you have personal favorites you'd like to share?
