~*~*~*~*~
“Idris, please...I can’t take much more of this.”

Yes, she was pleading despite her decision not to capitulate to his demand, begging him to satisfy the hunger gnawing in her stomach. Rahma allowed her eyelashes to flutter shut; not believing she’d said those words once they were out.

But, they were true words. His caresses had turned torturous. All she wanted now was some relief from the fever burning through her, threatening to drive her insane.

“Mine,” he whispered against her ear in a hoarse voice, the warmth of his breath sensitizing her skin.

Take a peek Behind Closed Doors with @RavenMcAllan in Cecilia's Claim

Happy Monday, folks. There's been a change to my guest author. Today, the lovely Raven McAllan has taken over my blog to share about her latest book, Cecilia's Claim, a historical erotica in a series she's writing with Lee Brazil.

As usual, please make her feel welcome. Leave a comment and you could win a copy of her book.

Last week's winner of The Italian Inheritance by Louise Rose-Innes is Donna Hole.

Now over to you, Raven.

~*~*~*~*~

Cecilia's Claim is book two in the Regency Series Behind closed Doors, that I'm writing with Lee Brazil.

It's great fun, as I get to know and understand my characters and his. Although each book is a stand alone, you do get to know a bit about all the other characters in the series…

Everyone agreed the Brigstock family was unconventional. Just how unconventional could be somewhat of a shock...

She may have turned her men down once, but will she have the resolve to do it again?

Cecy's willpower is never strong when she's around Caleb or Philippe, and now she needs them to keep her safe. They intend to stick close to her, so surely a little dalliance is acceptable? The problem is a little is not enough for any of them, but can they all agree just on what form the 'more' should take?

Get Wet and Wild

Welcome to the Wet and Wild blog hop hosted by Skye Warren. You can win $100 Victoria Secret gift card and a digital gift basket plus loads of other goodies.

Over here, I'm giving away a $5 eBook gift card from Amazon or All Romance eBooks.  All you have to do to enter prize draw is
1. Follow my blog via Email or
2. Add me on Google+ or both
3. and Leave me a blog comment with your Google+ name and email address.

Note: You need to leave a comment to be entered into the Grand Prize draw.

But first let's meet some characters getting wet and wild. In this scene from An Engagement Challenge, Paul and Ijay are having dinner in a restaurant when this happens. Enjoy. J

Warning: contains sexual situation.

~*~*~*~*~

The continued journey of his lips down her neck crippled her mind to any coherent thoughts, muting her from replying. All she could do was feel; the warmth of his breath on her sensitive skin, the sensuous brush of his tongue against her pulse point. Making her want to give in, to tilt her head back to give him more access.

Joshua was an expert at seduction. For years, he’d kept her enthralled. Once she’d tasted his passion, she’d wanted no other since.

Thrusty Thursday: The Wolf On The Hill by Jorja Lovett #BookReview @JorjaLovett

Hello, everyone. Welcome back to Thrusty Thursday. I’ve been trying to catch up with my To-Be-Read pile and this week I've got another book to recommend.

Disclaimer: No favours have been exchanged for these reviews. 


The Wolf on the Hill by Jorja Lovett

Tags: paranormal romance, sensual, wolf shifters

Can two stubborn wolf shifters let down their guards long enough to take a chance on love?
Lone wolf Caleb Jackson is only back in town long enough to sell his late father's house, and the bad memories with it. He never expected to find his mate.

Good girl Mia Blake never behaves badly. Except for the time she shifts into her wolf, chases a stranger through Olcan Hills, and has the hottest sex of her life on the forest floor.
He has no desire to settle down. She is afraid to upset her family. But, with someone determined to destroy Caleb's inheritance, and his secret fling with Mia getting hot and heavy, moving on isn't as easy as he'd hoped.

Can either of them let down their guards long enough to take a chance on love?

I bought my copy from Total E-Bound.

Remember to leave a comment for your chance to win a copy of her book. I will announce the winner next week.

Last week's winner of The Wolf On The Hill by Jorja Lovett is Nana Prah. Congratulations!

Now onto this week's interview...

~*~*~*~*~

Q1) Can you tell us a little about yourself


My name is Louise Rose-Innes and I write contemporary romance and romantic suspense. I’ve self-published two contemporary romance novels, the most recent of which did fairly well on Amazon. My debut romantic suspense novel is going to be published by Entangled Publishing later this year.

 

Q2) Have you always wanted to be an author?


Yes, as far back as I can remember. I read prolifically as a child and  young adult and always kept a diary. Then one day I stopped dreaming about writing and actually did it. Best decision of my life.
