Mekai wants to leave a lasting impression. #MWTease from BEYOND REACH #scifi #romance #sfr #FREEread

Hello! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease!

For today’s tease, I’m sharing a snippet from BEYOND REACH, a sci-fi erotic romance which is free this month at all major e-tailers.

Setup: Mekai is a prince who left his kingdom to experience pleasure on a faraway planet. There he met Nixie. And after one night together, he wants more…

Mekai didn’t think it possible for his cock to still be rock-hard, but the sensations brought by Nixie’s slender body under his proved otherwise. Yet his heart seemed to have swelled inside his chest. He knew he would have to leave her soon, but he never wanted to be with another, couldn’t bear the thought of her being with anyone else, either. For the first time, he considered settling down with a woman. With Nixie. For he had already loved her for years.

When she relaxed beneath him, he released her wrists, dragging his fingers down her arms and sides. Never had he met another like her. She’d left him sated and implanted herself in his heart.

I’m not sure how, but it’s my turn to leave a lasting impression.

With bittersweet fervor, he fed from the sweetness of her mouth. She dug her fingertips into his back, grinding her pelvis against him.

So tempting to just take her now. He could easily take pleasure from her feminine folds, but how would that make her feel special? Guys from all over the universe received gratification from her. But he wanted her time with him to be memorable, possibly life-changing. This had to be all about her, for her.

Sliding down her body, he sucked on one of her nipples while he ravaged the other breast with his hand. He couldn’t get enough.

She writhed beneath him, combing her fingers through his hair. But she still held back, reluctant to let go, to just enjoy as he tried to satisfy her.

“Nixie, relax,” he growled. “Or I’ll have to make a complaint. How would it look if your client was dissatisfied with your services?”

“You wouldn’t.” Her nostrils flared as she glared at him. “This isn’t part of my training, anyway.”

He kissed the tip of her nose. “I don’t want to be part of your training. I want you to be mine, my first.”

She gasped. “But you’re so…. You never?”

He shook his head. “I was taught to wait until I found the right woman.”

Her stare weakened and her bottom lip quivered. “I’m not her.”

Desperate to leave his mark on her soul, he kissed her, tasted her lips, her chin, and down her slender neck. He wanted more, but only if she agreed. “I think you are, and I’m willing to find out right now.”

Pressing her pelvis against him, she moaned. “Oh gods, I don’t know.”

He saw her resolve weakening, and waited. She had to give up all control. And I won’t give up until she does.

Running his tongue down her silky nakedness, toward her tender flesh, he spread open her legs and breathed in the evidence of her arousal. Nothing could ever be as tempting.

He drew his finger across the dampness between her legs. Perfect. So ready. Leaning down, he licked her swollen nub, his fingers traveling to the deeper heat within.

She bucked beneath him, thrusting her hips into the air. “Mekai, o…okay. I want more.”

As his name rolled off her tongue, followed by her desperate plea, he shivered. No way would he deny her request.


BEYOND REACH

Abandoned by her parents…

Born on Earth, Nixie was left on the planet Schedar when her parents returned home. Growing up on the pleasure planet, she follows in the footsteps of the woman who raised her, and learns the art of erotic massage. But Nixie yearns for a different life, one where she receives as much pleasure as she gives.

A runaway prince…

In an attempt to escape his arranged marriage, Prince Mekai flees to Schedar. For, he could never love his betrothed when he already loves another, a fantasy woman who invades his dreams every night. When the woman he seeks carnal pleasure from turns out to be the same one in his fantasies, he believes fate brought them together.

Fated lovers or forever enemies?

Just when Nixie and Mekai believe they have a chance at happiness with each other, they find out why their races are at war, and why they can never be together.

Without her nurse, she’d be a mess. #MWTease from ACCIDENTAL ROMANCE #NewAdult #romance

Hello! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease! This week has been a sad one for the writers of Mid Week Tease, as we lost one of our own last week. Kathleen Grieve passed. She was not only a USA Today Bestselling Author, she was also a full-time flight and ICU nurse. So the nurses and doctors she wrote into her stories came from real-world experience. I first connected with her online back when we both participated in Six Sentence Sunday. I didn’t know her well, but we’ve been commenting on each other’s blog posts for years. I hope you’ll take the time to visit her website and check out her books.

For today’s tease, I thought I’d share one from Accidental Romance where Leanne is talking to her nurse on the day she is ready to leave the hospital after losing her hand.

Setup: Leanne lost her hand in a grain auger accident. It was Jake who came to her rescue, preventing a worse injury, or even death.

“Hey, Leanne.” Her nurse, Tory, scurried into the room. “Ready to go home today?”

She groaned. As much as she wanted out of the hospital—three days of horrible food and little sleep was long enough—she didn’t feel prepared to face her new life. “Are you coming home with me?”

Tory chuckled. “I wish. I’d take a hundred patients like you any day. But I’m sure you’re anxious to be out in the real world with your family and friends.”

Not at all. Relying on others every minute of the day held no appeal, yet she hoped someone would always be around. Just in case.

A nurse would visit daily to check her wounds and change her dressing until her nub had healed completely, but otherwise she’d need her mother or someone else to help her for the rest of her life.

And she’d go stir crazy at home. What the hell was she supposed to do now? She would be good for nothing out in the country. She didn’t want to move to the city to make a living, but even if she did, where would she find work anyway? She’d need to be whole to get even minimum wage jobs. No one would hire her.

“Why don’t you get dressed? I’ll change your bandages after the doctor takes one last look at your arm.”

She nodded. Though getting dressed wasn’t as easy as she expected. Tory helped her do up snaps and held arm holes open. Otherwise, she might have ended up in a tangled mess. What would happen after she left the hospital?

After her nurse exited the room, she managed to swallow her breakfast of tasteless eggs and toast. While she waited for her ride, her nurse gave her enough pain medication for the rest of the day, with a prescription for more. And reminded her that in two weeks, she had a follow-up appointment with her surgeon. Yet, she sat on the bed, hoping she’d been forgotten, wishing she could have one more day in the hospital before having to face her new reality.

Within minutes, Tory popped back into her room with a wheelchair. “Your ride’s here, and he’s a handsome one. You’re a lucky girl.”

Lucky? Her mother was supposed to pick her up. Who was taking her home?

She released a heavy breath as Jake strolled in. Great! Now she was a burden to him, as well. “What are you doing here?”

Raising his eyebrows, he smirked. “Nice to see you, too. Your parents have an appointment with the insurance agent and asked me to pick you up. Is that all right with you, LA?”

Back to his smart-ass self. At least she knew how to act around this guy. “Well, if you’re my last resort, then I guess I’m going to have to deal with it. But don’t expect me to be grateful or anything.”

“Nice to have my girl back.”

His girl? Um, no. The only person she’d ever expect to call her that was her father, but he called her sweetheart. She didn’t belong to Jake. She shook her head and brushed off the comment. There were so many other things for her to worry about.

She hugged Tory on her way out. “Thanks for everything.”

“Not a problem, honey. You take care of yourself.”

She sighed. If only she could. Seizing her bag, she headed for the door, the portal to an unfamiliar life.


ACCIDENTAL ROMANCE

Her plans changed in an instant…

Once finished college, Leanne intended to take over her family dairy farm, let her father retire and finally take a vacation. After one tragic night, her dreams go up in smoke. She loses the ability to do the most basic of things.

And brought him closer…

Jake, the farm hand who lives down the road, refuses to let Leanne give up on her goals. He remains by her side throughout her healing. But, when he confesses his true intentions, their friendship takes a drastic turn.

If only she’d known before she lost her arm.

New lips at the kissing booth. #MWTease from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #scifi #romance #sfr

Happy Wednesday! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease! This week, I’m sharing another excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Romance that takes place during a zombie apocalypse. It released earlier in 2017. Enjoy!

Setup: Last week we met RJ at the local fun fair. We know he’s looking for someone. Now, let’s switch over to Missy, the heroine of the story…

“Melissa Ruth Smith, I insist you come back here at once.”

Missy rolled her eyes as she stormed away from her father. The man had helped her celebrate her twenty-first birthday yesterday—with a simple birthday cake and a glass of wine—yet still treated her like a child. “It’s to help Billy and the band, remember?” she shouted over her shoulder. “That’s why I came home.” Though she wished she hadn’t. Not with only two weeks off between her summer classes and fall term.

“But, the kissing booth?” Her father rushed to keep up with her. “Jesus wouldn’t approve.”

The religion card. What a surprise. “Jesus wouldn’t approve of half the shit that goes on in this town, especially how you treated that family next door.” She spun around and faced her father with her hands on her hips. “And you certainly haven’t been struck down yet.”

“Missy, please don’t talk to your father like that.” Her mother hooked an arm through hers and paraded her closer to the booth she was scheduled to volunteer at. “It’s just, aren’t you concerned about the germs? The diseases you could catch?”

“C’mon, Mom. I’m just kissing them on the cheek.” She glanced over at Sidney who tapped her watch before kissing Old Man Samson on the small patch of cheek not covered by his fluffy white beard. “Besides, you asked me to come home and help with this fundraiser.”

“I know, but there are other things you could—”

“I’ve gotta go, Mom. Sidney’s waiting for me to take over.” Jogging over to the booth, Missy took her place beside the bench.

Sidney grabbed her purse and left without a word, no different than when they’d attended high school together. Hence, why Missy had fled West Vitula right after graduating high school. No one who stuck around seemed to change.

The line thinned out with the departure of her former classmate, but there were still plenty of cheeks to kiss and a plethora of greenbacks deposited into the jar, money that would help her brother and the rest of the band get to Nationals. And maybe they would see there was life beyond this backward town.

After numerous kisses, her lips burned. She reached into her pocket for her lip balm and took a break to apply it and let it soak in. When she glanced back at the line, everyone had disappeared. All the males except the one her parents would blow a gasket if she kissed. Which made her want to lay her lips on him even more.


IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

It started with a kiss.

Then the zombies came. Now, Missy must work with the neighbor her parents hate if she wants to survive. But zombies aren’t the only threat to her life, or her heart.

RJ is looking for someone. #MWTease from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE #scifi #romance #sfr

Happy Wednesday! Thank you for visiting me for another Mid Week Tease! Today I’ve decided to share an excerpt from IT TOOK A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, a New Adult Interracial Romance that takes place during a zombie apocalypse. It released earlier in 2017. Enjoy!

Setup: This is the very beginning of the story, before the zombies…

RJ strolled through the booths at the fun fair. Another gathering where people either glared at him or pretended he didn’t exist. Growing up in West Vitula, one would think he’d be used to it. But a lifetime of not being welcome in the small town never came easy. Why couldn’t his father have secured a position at a hospital in Ostrander, only an hour away?

Women stood behind rows of wooden tables, selling pies, bread, and jams to other women. Some men gathered in various groups, drinking beer from plastic glasses and telling recycled stories from their youth or checking out the college girls who had returned for the summer. Just as RJ had come to do. Yet, he hadn’t seen anyone worth his time. If not for the anniversary of his mother’s death, he would have stayed away from this town and insisted his father take some time off to visit him.

Kids ran from games to rides to carts selling cotton candy and candy apples, spending their parents’ money like it would never run out. But the longest line was for a booth at the very end of the park. Males of all ages, from kindergarteners to seniors who needed a walker to travel ten feet, lined up in front of a hand-painted sign reading $5 for a kiss, and beside the words, a pair of bright red lips.

RJ bypassed the line to see who was so in demand with the male population. Sidney Flowers, former captain of the cheerleading squad and all-around bitch. The disgusted look she gave the crowd after she’d kissed various men on the cheek proved she hadn’t changed. Yet, no one in line seemed deterred. Only him.

No way did he crave the touch of the girl who’d falsely accused him of killing his own mother and sending his father to the psych ward. All because RJ had caught Sidney helping her boyfriend cheat on a test. Though the rest of the school knew his mother had been killed on the highway by a drunk driver, they seemed to like her version of the story better.

He turned away. He wouldn’t pay a penny to receive a kiss from anyone in this town. Well, except one girl, but he hadn’t seen her yet this summer, not since two years prior when she’d left for Cremshaw without a backward glance.
