Yay! I have #CoverArt for SCARS and #SexySnippets too

Finally, I have the cover art for Scars, part one of the Passion Shields series of erotic contemporary novellas. 

I'm always excited whenever I get my cover art. For a visual person like me, it's a more tangible proof that I have a book coming out than when I see a book contract.
So I hope you'll celebrate with me.

Ta dah!

Release date: August 1, 2013!

Here's the blurb:

She clutches at control to cover her flaws.
He wants to strip her bare because she's beautiful.

Selina Moss hides a secret beneath her controlled happy exterior. Her body is covered in scars and she's never revealed them to anyone. She's not beautiful and she doesn't want pity.

However, it's her wedding night and husband, Benjamin Moss, is determined to strip down her barriers.

Benjamin is not playing fair, not when he's deploying breath-stealing seduction as well as mind-melting sex toys. But will he still want her when she bares all?



For my sexy snippet, I've gone right back to the start of the story. I hope it hooks you.
If you can't wait till Thursday, you can check out previous sexy snippets from this story here and here. Enjoy.
~*~*~*~*~

"I look forward to having you naked in bed tonight."
Benjamin's heavy voice whispered hot against the skin on the back of her ears. The image of her bare body sprawled against the Egyptian cotton sheets of their five-star hotel bed loomed large in Selina's mind. Sparks of arousal travelled down her spine to her very core.
"All your beautiful chocolate skin on display for me."
His hand stroked her thigh—slow, purposeful strokes, igniting into flames of desire that licked her sex, melting it like wax.
She bit her lip, holding back a moan as she turned her head, needing to see his face, taste his lips.

#SexySnippets Scars Trilogy #Book 2 #wakingthesenses

Welcome back to Sexy Snippets hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers, seven sentences shared from your work-in-progress or published work.

This week I've snipped from the second book in the Scars Trilogy which I started writing this week. It's still early days in this WIP so this is from chapter 1. I hope you enjoy it.

~*~*~*~*~

"Wake up, beauty," Benjamin's alert tone penetrated Selina's sleep.

She stirred slowly, her body weighed down, languid. The aroma of dark roasted coffee beans wafted around her, alerting her brain. She lifted her eyelids and smiled. Her husband stood half-naked in the middle of their master bedroom in a pair of dark chinos, his toned bare torso and arms a golden beacon drawing her waking desire.

She shifted, lifting herself into a sitting position, her brows pulled together in a frown. Something was wrong.

~*~*~*~*~

Leave me a comment. I love to read them. Remember to check out the other Sexy Snippets this week.

Outcast by Kiru Taye Chapter 1- Part 1 #historical #paranormal #shifters

Hi, folks. I hope you're all having a great July so far. I've got a new book coming out in late August titled Outcast (formerly titled The Healer's Warrior) and for the next few weeks I'm going to share the first few chapters with you in preparation for publication.
Each week I'm going to post a part of each chapter sequentially. All you have to do is read and let me know if you enjoyed it by leaving a comment. The more comments I receive, the more likely I'll post the next part sooner rather than later.

It is unedited, so pardon any errors.

I'm hoping to receive the cover art soon but in the meantime here's the blurb. This story explores some African myths and legends but is purely fictional and a product of my imagination.

Ugo’ji is an outcast, an untouchable. She lives on the fringe of society as the lowest of the low, a living sacrifice to the gods. The only person she interacts with is her aged grandmother Nne who nurtures her powerful gift of healing. Until the day she meets Ebube a strange warrior to their lands who ignites a yearning within her she's unable to ignore.
Ebube is drawn to the young maiden with the emerald green eyes who possesses the body of a goddess and the healing touch of an angel. But he is forbidden from mating with a human and the consequence is the wrath of the gods.

Moreover he is on a mission. If he fails, the gates of hell will be opened and the earth plunged into darkness. He cannot stay and she cannot go with him. So why bother?


Chapter One


Help me...Do whatever it takes...Keep the gates of Alammuo sealed.

Darkness tugged at him, threatening to pull him into its murky depths. With a jerk Ebube sat up on his pallet, the wood creaking with the shift of his weight. The pounding of his heart echoed in his ultra-sensitive ears, sweat streaked down his body in rivulets.

#Interview Getting Physically Yours with @NnennaMarcia ConRom #Giveaway

Happy Monday, folk. You know I love showcasing new authors here and this week it's my pleasure to host debut author Nnenna Marcia as we chat about writing and her new book Physically, Yours, a contemporary romance set in Nigeria.

Please make her feel welcome and leave a comment. She's giving away a copy of her book to one lucky commenter. The winner will be announced next Monday.

Last week's winner of Altered Frequency by Joya Fields is Debbie Christiana. Congratulation! Contact me for your copy.

Now on to this week's interview...


Q1) Can you tell us a little about yourself

I write under the name erotica under the name ‘Nnenna Marcia’ (http://www.nnennamarcia.com)  which is a pseudonym – my romance novel is published under ‘Nnenna Emm’ to distinguish it a bit. I grew up in Nigeria as one of six children and I think that even though you have great fun in such a huge family, it’s also essential to break away from the group a bit and form your own identity. Writing was always that identity for me.

#SexySnippets from The Healers Warrior #historical #paranormal

I'm a little late to the Sexy Snippets party this Sunday but I hope your enjoy my seven sentences taken from a historical paranormal romance I wrote back in 2011, soon to be published, titled The Healer's Warrior.

~*~*~*~*~

At the sound of the deep voice behind her, Ugo gasped and nearly jumped off the little stool she sat on. Her heart was certainly lodged somewhere in her throat. She turned around to see Ebube standing a few paces behind her.

From her sitting angle, he looked impossibly tall, dark and menacing with his face in the shadows. His silhouetted body oozed a certain predatory strength. His eyes' catlike qualities seemed to glow like gems in the dark.

How did he get there without her hearing him?

~*~*~*~*~

Share your thoughts. I love to read them. And check out the other Sexy Snippets this week.
