Today’s theme is…

A SEXY DELIGHT

Here’s seven from BENEATH THE STARRY SKY, a contemporary erotic romance that is part of the 1Night Stand line.

They have more in common than she thought in Beneath the Starry Sky by Jessica E. Subject

Set-up: In this contemporary erotic 1Night Stand romance, Josh (a former tv star) is trying to stop Tamara from feeling sorry for herself, because he can relate to how she feels.

She heard no revulsion in his voice and glanced over at him. “You still want to have a one-night stand with me after seeing me like this?” Is this guy blind?

“Sure. It’s not very often I find someone who I can relate to. What’s your name? Madame Eve never told me.”

She tensed. “Tamara. But you know nothing about me or what I’m going through.” She stood up. If he wasn’t going to leave, she would.

As she walked past, he grabbed her arm. “I can relate, and I’ll show you if you just give me a chance.”

Too weak to fight from all of her crying, she didn’t resist. “Fine, show me.”

He released her then unbuttoned his shirt and took it off. Turning around, he said, “Look at my back. See all of the scarring there? Well, it extends up past my hairline. I went with hair restoration surgery instead of a wig, but I still know what the sting of rejection feels like.”

Her eyes widened. Insert foot in mouth. “I’m sorry.” She’d acted like a bitch, and the last thing he needed was more rejection, more people feeling sorry for him. If anything, they both needed someone who could simply understand. “It’s just that so many people sympathize with how I feel, but they truly have no idea what it’s like to have alopecia, to have hair one day and none the next.”

~ About Beneath the Starry Sky ~

Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.

Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.

An interview with P. J. Morgan, narrator of UNKNOWN FUTURES #lesfic #1NightStand @listentoPJ

Hello my dear readers! Have you had a chance to listen to any of my audio books yet? Well, today I have a special treat for you. I’m interviewing P. J. Morgan, the fabulous narrator for my most recent audio book, UNKNOWN FUTURES. Be sure to check out the sample from the audio book after the interview.

P. J. MorganHow long have you been narrating audiobooks?

P. J.:  It’s been pretty much exactly a year since I started narrating commercial audiobook titles (May 2014).

How did you get started?

P. J.: I had made contributions to LibriVox (www.librivox.org), a public domain, volunteer-run audiobook site, for about six months prior to that, just to get my feet wet. I loved it, and wanted to turn my hobby into an income source, as well as find a way to share my work with a larger audience.

What are your favorite types of stories to narrate?

P. J.: I love stories with interesting, fully-realised female protagonists. Fortunately, I get to do a lot of those! I also really enjoy lesbian-themed stories, fantasy, and anything with great writing and a solid plot.

What are your favorite scenes to narrate?

P. J.: Action scenes are a lot of fun. You really get lost in the story you’re telling, which makes it easy to nail the pacing without lots of editing!

That seems to be a favorite for narrators and listeners alike. What are your least favorite scenes to narrate?

P. J.: I would say dialogue is the hardest to get right, especially with many characters talking in the same scene, but recording it can actually be so much fun. I really love narrating just about everything, because there’s a challenge in all of it.

Yes, I believe challenges help us to grow in what we do. In Unknown Futures, what was your favorite scene?

P. J.: Well, it’s kind of hard to beat the sex scenes between Jewel and V! I love all the wonderful alien characters aboard the space station, too, and the scenes including them were so much fun to narrate.

Thank you! What format of books do you prefer to read or listen to?

P. J.: I’m a total traditionalist, and I find nothing so comforting as having a good print book in hand. I like the tactile experience of reading a book – the weight of it in your hands, the feel of the pages between your fingers. I just can’t get into eBooks, but the convenience is hard to beat. I’ve been known to read free eBooks on my phone in desperation.

I’m still trying to break into audiobooks – funny, I know. The right narrator can make the listening experience transcend the words on the page. Not to mention, it’s a good educational experience for a fellow narrator! It’s important to study what the actors at the top of the game do right. I’m trying to get into the habit of picking up an audio copy of any book I enjoyed in print, to see how the experience differences.

That’s a great idea! Who is your favorite author?

P. J.: Oof, that’s probably the toughest question you could ask! I don’t have many favourites (so far), but it’s a very tight race between them. If I could only pick one, it would have to be P. G. Wodehouse. I can’t read anything of his and not be instantly in a good mood. (Close seconds are Sarah Waters, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood.)

I know. So hard to pick just one, right? What do you like to do in your spare time?

P. J.: Between having a full-time job in IT and voicing audiobooks at night, there’s not much time left over, but I like to read as much as I can, and I write a novel every year as part of National Novel Writing Month. I have dogs, cats, and horses, so caring for all of them takes up a lot of time, too. I’ve been known to craft in odd moments, and I do a lot of community theatre, and sometimes appear in short films or on TV.

Very cool! What projects are you working on next?

P. J.: I’m currently wrapping up narration on a fantastic novel called Deep Down Things by Tamara Linse, whose short story collection How to Be a Man was my first commercial audiobook title. I also just started work on the second book in a wonderful urban fantasy trilogy by Fiona Skye, Silver Shackles. I’m hoping to pick up a few other shorter titles in the coming months, too.

Outside of audiobooks, I’m looking for other types of voice over and on-screen work. My dream is to voice a cartoon character someday, or start a comedy webseries, or maybe edit one of my novels!

I wish you all the best with all those project! Where can readers, listeners, and authors find you?

P. J.: I’m at listentopj.com, and also on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pjmorganvo and Twitter at http://twitter.com/listentopj.

Thank you so much, P. J., for visiting and for the fabulous work you did in narrating UNKNOWN FUTURES!

Author @SSaraDaniel shares her Top Ten Romance Movies & a #giveaway #1NightStand @DecadentPub

Sara Daniel One Night with the Bridal Party seriesSara Daniel’s Top Ten Romance Movies

Below you will find my top ten list of romance movies, in no particular order. Leave a comment letting me know if I left out your favorite. I’m sure I missed some goodies!

  1. French Kiss – I laughed. I cried. From Meg Ryan joking with Kevin Kline about his “little problem” and then emptying her “nest egg” for him, yeah, I loved it.
  2. Love Actually – Usually, when multiple subplots are featured, I have a favorite storyline, but in this movie, I loved them all.
  3. While You Were Sleeping – I watched this movie on continuous loop in the 90s. It never got old.
  4. Legally Blonde – Cute and smart. Let’s hear it for the girls!
  5. Sweet Home Alabama – Okay, I’m a total Reese Witherspoon fan, and I might have a thing for sexy redneck guys too.
  6. Pretty Woman – Who wasn’t rooting for Julia Roberts and Richard Gere?
  7. You’ve Got Mail – I just watched this again recently, and sadly it was pretty dated (hello, dial up Internet!). But the online premise is still very current.
  8. Bridget Jones’s Diary – I might be a sucker for Colin Firth.
  9. Contact – Okay, this is not truly a romance, but the romance thread really tugged at my heart. And hello, Matthew McConaughey. No movie list of mine is complete without his name appearing somewhere.
  10. Magic Mike – HELLO Channing Tatum! And I get to ogle him again in the sequel. 😉

One Night With Her Husband by Sara Daniel

She walked away from her marriage seven years ago…

Marcia Johnson always assumed her husband would follow her eventually. She’d achieve success while she waited and prove her decision the right one. But when he finally turns up, she’s not ready. Her career hangs in the balance, and her weight has skyrocketed. How can she face the man she loves and show him she made the right choice? Especially when he’s matured from a decent-looking college student into the sexiest man she’s ever seen.

He’s waited seven years for his wife to finally need him…

If Adrian Torres can save her business, maybe he’ll have a shot at saving their marriage. But the woman he finds is too competent and independent to ask him for help. She even shrugs off his touch instead of reacting with the desire he hoped to ignite. Have the embers of their marriage finally died? Is it time to end their relationship and move forward?

He wants a divorce…

Her world ripped apart, Marcia turns to 1Night Stand to give her one more night before she lets Adrian go. She dares not hope for more. Even Madame Eve couldn’t have the magic to save their neglected disaster of a relationship…could she?

The tender, adoring look in his eyes disintegrated. His body stiffened instantly and he glanced away from her before his gaze came back to rest impersonally on her face.

“Are you steady now?” Even his voice was the same as her dream. The rumble invaded her body and twined through her with an easy familiarity. But as she looked at him, the love and joy she’d experienced turned to doubt.

He couldn’t possibly be the man from her dream.

It was a dream. It wasn’t real. It couldn’t be.

She didn’t believe in the supernatural. She left that to her mother who lived and breathed the woo-woo, crazy ass, nutso stuff.

God, she must be more messed up than she thought. When she glanced back at the man’s face, his jaw and cheeks were carved from granite. A dark stubble dusted his chin and upper lip emphasizing his kissable lips. Don’t go there, Shasa. No kissing.

The cold impersonality in his gaze completed the picture of a surly, aloof man. Now he looked like her dream man’s older, harder, angrier cousin.

 

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne. Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction. As evidenced by her Black Cipher Files series.

Recently she’s been immersed in the Stone Family novellas, stories about a blended family of brothers and a sister who have a lot more in common than they realize. But of course she couldn’t just write about family and romance. There are complex plots, bad guys, and suspense too.

Taking a break from romantic suspense, Lisa entered the paranormal world of the Angelic Realm. The Seven deals with forbidden relationships between humans and Archangels. At its heart, Rafe is a novel about the dynamic of family relationships. As this series evolves, the core story continues to be about love triumphing in the face of opposition and heartache. (The really hot Archangels don’t hurt.)
