Cherish Blog Tour: An interview with author Ann Mayburn & Giveaway!

It gives me great pleasure to welcome Ann Mayburn back to my blog today to discuss her latest release, Cherish, and more.

Ann, can you tell us about your new release?

AM: ‘Cherish’ is a short and sweet story about Sam and Cody from my 1 Night Stand story, ‘Want’. In it we get to see the men on their honeymoon at the cabin they built together in the mountains outside of Las Vegas. There is a good deal of love, and steam, in this story and I really hope it gives my readers a happy sigh. 🙂

Describe the heroes in three words.

AM: Mature, confident, and secure

What traits does Sam posses that makes Cody swoon?

Sam is confident, attractive, and Cody’s perfect mate. The two men have an intense chemistry combined with a mutual respect for each other. Before they were lovers they were friends and for Cody, Sam is his perfect man.

What was your inspiration for this story?

AM: I had a good deal of fan mail for Cody and Sam so when the opportunity came to write a short story for Decadent Publishing’s ‘The Edge’ series I jumped at the chance to give a brief glimpse into the HEA.

How long have you been writing with the hopes of publication?

AM: Ummmm, I’ve been published for just over a year and I started writing about four months before my first book sold. 🙂

Wow, that was quick. How did you get started?

AM: I decided to start writing in June of ’10 after the pre-mature birth of my third son. He was born at 31 weeks, nine weeks early, and it was a very rough delivery. I lost a great deal of blood and had some touch and go moments. While I was recovering from my c-section, without my baby, I had a lot of time to think. In my morphine pumped induced state, I considered all the things that I’d done and what I still wanted to do.

I’d had A LOT of fun in my life, and marrying my husband and having my children was a joy that I can never fully explain. One thing I’d wanted to do was write a book. I’ve always been a heavy reader, my husband used to moan at my monthly bills from the bookstore, and I have an over-active imagination. The trouble was focusing my ADD ‘Oh look a squirrel, oh look a penny’ self to sit down and write.

Basically, I stopped making excuses about why I couldn’t do it, and sat down and DID it. I found that once I started, I couldn’t stop. My muse went into overdrive and I have more ideas than I have hours in the day. I’ve been so fortunate to find myself surrounded by supportive publishers and fantastically helpful authors. The romance community has to be one of the most loving, gracious communities out there.

What genres do you enjoy reading?

AM: Anything and everything as long as it has romance.

What started out as a one night stand has turned into the best decision of Sam’s life after he marries the formerly straight man of his dreams, Cody. When his new husband tells Sam he has a special surprise for him on their honeymoon Sam can’t help but wonder what he has in store for him. Secluded from the rest of the world in the cabin they built together in the mountains surrounding Las Vegas, the two men begin their life together with plenty of passion and love.

Adult Excerpt:

Sam glanced out the windshield, as familiar with the winding road to their cabin as his own backyard. Heck, he should be. They’d made over four dozen trips up and down the mountain as they built their log cabin on the edge of the National Park. Their ultimate mountain retreat was almost complete, and he couldn’t think of any place he’d rather spend his honeymoon than surrounded by the solitude of the wilderness and Cody.

The big truck easily navigated the final stretch of road before they reached their destination. Anticipation hummed through Sam and his cock twitched to life. Cody wore a white T-shirt that stretched over his thick muscles, and a pair of silky jogging shorts. Perfect for what he had in mind.

He leaned over and kissed the side of his neck. “Move your seat back a couple inches.”


Sam grinned and unbuckled his seatbelt. “Look, I don’t want the steering wheel embedded in my skull. Move your seat back.”

He did as he asked then gripped the steering wheel with both hands until his knuckles turned white. “Just let me pull over.”

“Nope.” He hummed deep in his throat at the erection tenting the other man’s shorts. “Keep driving. You stop driving, I stop sucking.”

“Sam, this is a really bad—”

He stretched to lower his head and capture the thick rim of Cody’s cloth-covered prick between his lips, effectively cutting off his partner’s words. It had been two weeks since they’d had any kind of sexual contact and the need for release tightened his balls. He tugged at the waistband. “Look, you’re the one who wanted to take a break before our wedding so our honeymoon would be special. Well, it’s our honeymoon and this is special.”

In a gruff, strained voice, Cody said, “I’m going to hit a pot hole and you’re going to bite my dick off.”

Sam chuckled. “Lift your ass off the seat.” With some maneuvering, he managed to get the shorts down enough so that Cody’s hard sex sprang free. Saliva filled Sam’s mouth at the sight of the hard male flesh. He grasped the base of the thick penis, noting with delight that Cody had shaved his balls. “Well, well, what do we have here?” The shaft jumped in his fist and he ever so slowly licked from the base to the tip, pausing to suck at the little slit.

Cody’s thigh muscles tensed and he spread his legs as much as his shorts bunched around his thighs allowed. Sam’s own cock pulsed behind the tough fabric of his jeans, but he ignored his needs. Taking control of his partner’s pleasure always turned him on. They drove down the road in plain sight of anyone passing by and there was something deliciously forbidden about blowing him in broad daylight. True, the only things around here with a heartbeat were animals, but he still liked that edge of the forbidden.

Author Bio:

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of   West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist,   a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan    Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age she’s been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she  sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and  plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.

Now Ann  spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get  into her ‘sexy space’ and has learned to type one handed while soothing a  cranky baby.

A Steamy Christmas Eve brought to you by Ann Mayburn & Giveaway!!

A Steamy Christmas Eve
from Ann Mayburn

We always see the latest and greatest technology Christmas presents blasted all over the news and talk shows. All of these wonderful inventions geared towards making our lives easier, better, and more satisfying through the use of gadgets. I’ll admit I love my computer and flat screen TV as much as the next person, but I’ve always wondered how much more fun it would be if couples got in the habit of exchanging one very naughty bit of technology with each other on Christmas eve.

Imagine the fun that you could have giving your sweetie an adult sex toy on Christmas eve. 😉 After the kids are all snuggled off to bed or after the last house guests are out the door you and your sweetie could snuggle up together on the couch and exchange gifts that you know will keep on giving. You might giggle, you might blush, but I can assure you that your loved one would MUCH rather get a sex toy than another pair of Christmas pajamas. And together you can reaffirm your love for each other while showing your partner that you trust them enough to be utterly naughty.

I picked http://www.adameve.com/ to show you toys from today because I’ve used them in the past and I’ve always had good dealings with their company. The variety of toys they offer is astounding and they really try to educate their customers. They also have the added bonus of having instructional videos with most of their products. Plus they usually give away some kind of free product with your order and the only thing better than a good sex toy is a free sex toy.  😀

With literally a million toys out on the market I thought I’d stick to showing one for the lady, one of the gent, and one for the couple. For the lady and gent I’m showing toys that can be used either together or apart. Many couples enjoy watching each other masturbate and if you want to learn how to please your lover, watch how the touch themselves. If you can get past your initial embarrassment the sight of your lover getting all hot and excited is a visual treat that you won’t soon forget.

For Her

I love vibrators, I love g-spot orgasms, and I love this toy! Don’t be scared by its looks or its size, this wonder of technology will rapidly become you and your lovers best friend. For women that have a hard time getting aroused the rabbit is a god send. A few minutes with this bad boy and you’ll be more than ready for your lover. For women that have never experienced multiple orgasms, this is the toy that will teach your body how to do it. Honestly, get one for yourself and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without your rabbit. 😉


Wild G-Spot Vibrator

Stimulates you all over – not just your clit!

One of our most popular vibrators!

The special Triple-Pronged Stimulators are designed to tickle and tease your clitoris and the sensitive surrounding nerves as well to further enhance your pleasure and deliver stronger orgasms.

The Spinning Metal Beads massage your G Spot, labia and other erogenous zones – feeling just like tongue rings exploring your body!

The Curved G Spot Tip spins and wiggles in a circular motion to provide you with a more life-like experience while also stimulating your entire vagina.

Made from unscented silicone, this G Spot rabbit vibrator lacks the strong odor often found with comparable jelly or rubber sex toys. Furthermore, the silicone design is more durable – allowing for more energetic use as well as increased durability.

The Wild G Spot Vibrator is compatible with water-based and petroleum-based lubes and safe for use with condoms. The vibrator measures 6.5 inches long from tip to bottom and 1.5 inches wide, with roughly 4 insertable inches. Choose from 3 vibration and 3 rotation speeds.

I’ve almost worn out my first one, time for a little Christmas present to myself!

For Him

For a woman some of the men’s solo toys may look a bit unusual, but then again how unusual looking is a glowing pink plastic dick to a man? 😉 I’ve heard from multiple male sources that the toy below is amazing. I know quite a few guys who are away from home frequently for business and they all swear that this toy is worth its weight in gold. Personally, I loved the look of first surprise, then utter delight as my man tried this out while I was watching. Nothing is sexier, for me, than watching my man having a fantastic orgasm. 🙂 I’ll admit, this thing looks like so much fun I was a bit envious that I don’t have a dick so I can try it out. You can even get ones shaped like their favorite adult movie star’s pussy. Crazy I know!


It looks like a flashlight, but when you pop the cap off, you’ll see why the Fleshlight is rated one of our top-selling male masturbators. The exterior is a hard plastic case, so you don’t feel your hand while you’re stroking away at the realistic pussy inside. And the case lets you place the Fleshlight almost anywhere for hands-free adventures.

The inside is almost two lbs. of soft, snug ultra-realistic material, molded to look exactly like the real thing. You’ll feel so good when you lube up and slide between the sculpted lips that hug your erection in a tight, warm grip. Just unscrew the top, remove the PVC tube packed into the Fleshlight, and slide deep into the sleeve. You can thrust all the way, too, because the Fleshlight is a full 8″ deep. Unscrew the bottom cap slightly to create the suction that feels good for you.

To clean up, slide the sleeve out and wash with warm soapy water or toy cleaner and rinse. For best results, when the Fleshlight sleeve is dry, give it a light dusting of cornstarch to keep it looking and feeling like new.

They also have mouth and butt versions that I thought were rather giggle worthy and neat. 😀

For Them

To anyone that’s read my work it will come as no surprise that I love introducing couples to the pleasures of a little BDSM play. Now I’m not talking about having your mate slap you on the ass and call you Sally, but the sensation of being tied down while your lover worships your body is something everyone should enjoy at least once. That goes for men and women, don’t let your guy have all the fun. 😉

That’s why I would recommend a beginners restraint system like this one:



Under The Bed Restraint System

Turn Your Bed Into A Bondage Playground In Seconds!

Set up playful bondage games in minutes! No fancy knots or hardware needed! Just slide the restraint straps underneath mattress and go! Position straps for different uses, each 60” strap fits any bed. Soft, plush quick-release Velcro™ cuffs snap onto each strap. Includes 4 cuffs, 4 straps and connector strap. Made in USA.

Pretty neat, huh? 😀

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tiny offering of what is out there in adult sex toys, and I hope I’ve inspired you to think about giving your lover the gift that will really give you a Merry Christmas. 😉
