~ Guest: Susan Hayes - New Release - Summoned and Stolen ~



Growing up, I was always on the lookout for fairies. If the wind sounded like laughter, that was the wee folk giggling. If I got the sense I was being watched, it was because there was a fairy near by, peering at me from some somewhere just out of sight. There were even times I was certain I saw one, just for second. Then they’d be gone and I’d be left wondering if I had seen anything at all.  I would spend hours watching the rain fall on whatever lake or pond was nearby, imagining that every splash and concentric circle was the trail of a fairy dancing across the surface, playing in the rain with her skirts flaring and twirling in the breeze.

When it came time to write the next Summoned book, I knew I wanted the heroine to be a fairy. She would be a sparkling, delicate, child of the wild ways, tiny and winged and gentle.  Lily is every fairy I ever wished to see when I was a little girl.  (and perhaps, the few who let me see them, if only for a moment.)

Summoned into slavery, but unchained by love...

Lily is a magically bound slave who exists only to serve as a living ornament - the greatest of her master’s treasures.  When her master is killed, she finds herself bound to a vicious and cruel Duke whose dark intentions leave her terrified for her life.

Kel is the leader the fiercest mercenary army in the kingdoms, answering to no man and guided only by his personal code of honor. Upon learning that he and his men fought and died so their employer could gain control of a fae pleasure slave, he is furious. When that same man breaks his word and refuses to pay for Kel’s services, the mercenary knows just how to even the score.  He steals the Duke’s prize, the lovely fae slave.

Freedom comes at a cost, and the price Kel paid for the slave girl has made him a wanted man. Now the renegade warrior and the soft-hearted fae healer are running for their lives.  To survive, Lily must put her life in the bloodstained hands of a killer. To have what her heart desires, she’ll need to heal more than Kel’s wounds. She’ll need to heal his heart.


EXCERPT:

“We still have a little time left. Is there something you wish to do before I have to hide?”

“Aye, there is, little temptress. And I think you know full well what I wish for. Unfortunately, we’ve not got time to stop for that. I’ll have to be content with having you in my arms for now.”

Lily’s laughed and spread her wings, allowing herself to float until she was hovering above the saddle instead of sitting in it so that the two of them eye-to-eye. “Who said we have to stop?”

“Temptress indeed.” Kel slid a hand between their bodies to palm her breast while his other arm kept her close to his chest.

“Not a temptress. I just have no desire to be anywhere but in your arms,” Lily whispered her confession and Kel answered her with a kiss that made her quiver to the tips of her wings. There was hunger in his touch, but there was something else as well. His lips lingered, teasing and tasting her with a tenderness she’d never felt from him before. His hands, roughened by years handling weapons, were gentle as they caressed her.

The kiss deepened and she let her senses drink in everything as their tongues danced. His natural scent was earthy and dark, like the deep woods they had hidden in last night. The red-gold stubble of his jaw was scratchy where it touched her face, and she could feel the hard surface of his chainmail beneath his shirt. Kel’s hips rocked gently in time to his horse’s pace, an echo of the hard, fast thrusts he had used to bring her to orgasm just that morning. All around them birds sang and the trees rustled as they shifted, leading them out of the forest and back into a world full of danger. This time, though. She wouldn’t be facing that world alone.

She had Kel.

Kel’s need for Lily hit him with the force of sword blow, leaving him stunned. He had wanted women before, but never needed one. Lily was different. He couldn’t explain what it was that made her special, but she was. His men were going to be merciless when they saw him again. For so many years he’d claimed a true warrior needed nothing but his blade and an enemy to fight. Whether Lily stayed or not, Kel knew he’d never be able to make that claim again.

It was Lily who broke their kiss and then shifted herself in his arms so that she could reach the laces of his pants. Nimble fingers made short work of the knots he had tied, drawing out his cock with a soft coo of delight. That tiny sound made him even harder, and he had to resist the urge to haul her down onto his shaft and fuck her then and there. The only thing that stopped him was the knowledge that he’d hurt her if he did. The last thing Kel ever wanted to do was to cause her pain.

He removed his hand from the sweet curve of her ass, letting his fingers trace a line down between her legs to her pussy. Wet heat enveloped him as he slid a thick digit into her folds, seeking out her clit. “You’re already wet for me, little one, and I’ve barely touched you. Tonight I’m going to lay you down in the moonlight and learn every inch of your body. I will learn every secret place, every spot that makes you moan, and I will make you come harder than anyone has ever done. Your body is going to remember mine forever.”

Lily could only moan in response to his whispered words. Tonight couldn’t come fast enough. She had no doubt that Kel meant every syllable, and there was nothing she wanted more than to spend the night lost in his body. Until then, they would just have to settle for what they could get. His index finger found the swollen bundle of nerves and pressed down hard enough her entire body quivered. 

Her hand tightened around the thick shaft of his cock in response, and he groaned deep in his throat.

His mouth found hers again, hungry and wild with urgent demands that exactly matched her own. His fingers moved faster, sending her pulse racing. She rode his hand, letting his mouth muffle her sounds of pleasure. She stroked his cock in time to the rocking of her hips, and soon they were both breathing hard and she was lost to everything but her lover’s touch. Her attention slipped and she inadvertently dropped a few inches, bringing their bodies together. 

Once that happened, Lily let gravity work in her favor. She made a quick adjustment with her hands, wrapped her legs around Kel’s waist and sank down on his cock.

“Gods! You’re not ready for me yet.” Kel tried to move away, but there was nowhere for him to move to, no way to stop what was happening.

“I need you,” she whispered as she tightened her legs and drew him another incredible inch into her body.

“I need you too, little one. You have no idea how much.” Those softly spoken words were Lily’s undoing. She heard the pain buried in the words, and recognized the same loneliness that filled her heart. In that moment of instinctual connection with her battle scarred warrior Lily knew she’d found more than a protector. She’d found a kindred spirit.

~ Symposium: The Best is Yet to Come! ~



Hello Everyone! Welcome to my December symposium - it’s the end of the year, and what a wonderful year it has been! 






For this special symposium, I have asked my friends and fellow authors to give a recap of 2013 and share some of their most memorable moments with all of you!






LAURIE ROMA: 2013 was filled with so many exciting moments, I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’d say that this was the year of learning for me, since this was the first full year that I was writing as Laurie Roma. Being an author isn’t just about putting your stories down on the page. Nope…it couldn’t be that easy. There is also promoting, interacting with readers, dealing with publishers and other authors…and of course, writing the next book. Fortunately for me, I met several fellow authors that I am now honored to call good friends that helped me through it all, and I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with a few of them on the Sunset Point series. I’ve been both pleased and grateful that my readers have allowed my characters into their hearts, and I have loved sharing my IAD, Arcadian and 3013 worlds with them. I have so many more stories to share, and I look forward to doing so in 2014. On a final note, to all my fellow authors that have been gracious enough to visit with me here on my Symposiums every month and to all my readers who have allowed me to entertain them for a little while, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you all your very own happily ever after and a happy new year!


Alexis Donovan is a woman whose dream of falling in love with the perfect men has been dashed because of her infertile status. Still recovering from a war that almost destroyed the world, humans have fought to rebuild and have once again opened their shields to outside visitors. As a liaison officer for alien races that are visiting Earth, Alexis does her best to ignore what she can never have, but when she is put in charge of four visiting alien warriors, her entire world changes...

Dragons Warriors from Arcadia, Xavier and Galan Tesera and their best friends Thorn and Brydan Volis, have been curious about Earth ever since they helped the humans defeat their enemy years ago. As commanders of their own space vessel they travel the galaxies searching out the unknown, but in their hearts they know they will never truly be satisfied without a mate by their side.

When the four Dragon Warriors land on Earth they are instantly enamored with the sharp-tongued liaison who ignites a burning passion in their hearts, and know that she is the mate they have been searching for who will complete their souls. Will Alexis take a chance on four alien warriors or will the fear of leaving everything she has ever known destroy her chance of finding true love?

LEA BARRYMIRE: I love the end of the year. It's a good time to look back at what you've accomplished and formulate your plan for moving forward. I have had a SPECTACULAR 2013. A lot of firsts for me. First menage story written and published, first self-published short story, first RT conference, first Amazon Best Seller Lists... To sum up the year? Splendiphorously fantabulous. LOL I wish everyone a wonderful and blessed New Year!

Check out one of my firsts. First menage... very smexy!


Arin Walters decides that after ending her long-term relationship with her cheating boyfriend, she needs a vacation in the Montana mountains. She packs her fly-fishing gear and heads off for a week of relaxation and emotional healing.

N.J. WALTERS: It’s hard to believe that 2013 is almost over. In October I celebrated my ninth anniversary as a published author. That was a huge milestone for me and I’m still celebrating! My Hades’ Carnival series was released this year from Samhain Publishing, and I’m thrilled with the positive response from readers. For those of you who have written and asked for more, I’m working on three novellas for the remaining warriors. This year also marked the end of popular series, and the final book in the Tapestries series was published. As much as I love this series, I feel as though I’ve done all I can in this world. I love my readers who have made this series so popular. 2014 is shaping up to be another wonderful year. I have another Legacy book and the start of a brand new paranormal series. So Happy Holidays to you all!


When artist and tarot reader Sabrina Wolfe runs across an old carousel wolf in an antique shop, she can’t resist buying the compelling symbol of her totem animal, her protector. But she isn’t prepared when the wooden animal comes to fang-flashing life—and shifts into a darkly sexy man.

Arand is the last of seven immortal warriors sworn to protect the Lady of the Beasts. Freed by Sabrina’s touch, their instant physical attraction is hot, intense—yet neither is safe until twenty-four hours have passed and the curse is truly broken. 

Hades plans to use every one of those hours to unleash his last effort to control the world—or see both the warrior and his woman dead. Though help comes from unexpected quarters, Arand and Sabrina alone risk paying the ultimate price for victory. Their lives…and their very souls.

LACEY THORN: This year has been a Pleasure for me, literally! This is the year I launched my Pleasures series with the first book out in Jan. 2013 and the sixth releasing Dec. 18, 2013! Plus I have many more to come! I’m already working on the next Pleasures trilogy with the first one releasing in February 2014! Wow, what a year it’s been! I finally wrote Griff’s story in the Bare Love series and penned Gianna’s in the Marquetti Amore series. I wrote the follow up to Enforced Love aptly titled Confined Love! I couldn’t have asked for a more productive year! I’m truly blessed with great publishers and phenomenal editors! Looking forward to an even better 2014!

He knows Kat loved every moment, despite her fleeing the following morning.  Now Rafe, Liam, and Adrian are back, helping to protect Kat and wanting only one more thing— to arrange for her pleasure, in hopes of showing her just how possible it is to keep three men forever.

ZAYNE MICHAELS: 2013 brought with it many of ups and downs. Between personal drama and reoccurring health issues, my productivity level took a drastic nosedive for a large chunk of the year. That’s not to say it was all bad, though. I met a lot of fabulous people, both readers and authors, in 2013, and I will be forever grateful for their friendship and support. In August, I finally found my groove again and launched into a whole new adventure of imagination and creativity. Blood Red allowed me to rediscover the love of storytelling I’d been missing, and it set the ball rolling for a (hopefully) fantastic 2014 and better things to come. So, from me and mine to you and yours, no matter how you celebrate, I wish everyone the Happiest of Holidays and a Fantabulous New Year filled with joy, laughter, and love. 


Moving to Shadow Hills was supposed to be the start of a new life for Lachlan MacAuley, and for a while, the sleepy little town provided exactly what he’d been seeking. His debut novel had soared to the top of the bestseller charts, and each subsequent book only boosted his popularity. Though he had more imaginary friends than real ones, he was happy, finally living his dream as a published author. 

Then, in one tragic moment, everything changed.

Xeno knows the rules. He knows the risks of bringing a human into his world, but when he meets Lachlan at the local coffeehouse, he can’t deny there’s something between them. The connection goes deeper than mere physical attraction, though, and more than anything, he wants to mend the broken author and help to pick up the shattered remains of his life.

So many obstacles stand between them and their happy ending, but if they can learn to lean on one another, believe they can trust again, it may just be a holiday they’ll never forget.

SUSAN HAYES: The highpoint of my writing year didn’t involve writing. It was travelling to Las Vegas to meet up with some of the nicest, zaniest, most talented writers I’ve met. Three days of getting to spend time with authors in the same genre, who were willing to share their stories and experiences, was absolutely awesome. (And we are doing it again in 2014!) Some other highlights: getting to work with four other authors to write an entire series of overlapping stories. The Sunset Point series was an incredible opportunity to work closely with writers whom I now consider dear friends. It’s the year I wrote my first ménage and my first sci-fi. It was an amazing year, and 2014 is shaping up to be even more incredible. I hope the coming year brings you all more laughter than tears, and many pleasant hours spent lost in books.

When Vivian Waverly arrives in the small town of Tofino for her best friend’s wedding, her own love life is the last thing on her mind. The winds of fate are changing, and soon she finds herself falling for the sinfully sexy owners of Breakers, the local bar.

Tucker Pine and Byron Triggs are selkies, seal shapeshifters from the colony of Kismet Cove. Bound together by blood, the two of them are destined to share a mate. They’ve just about given up hope of finding her when Vivian turns their world and their hearts upside down.

Before long dark secrets, old wounds, and new enemies conspire against the three lovers. They’ll have to fight to stay together, defying family and tradition along the way.  When trust is broken and forces conspire against them, can their love weather the storm?

REBECCA JOYCE: Wow has it ever been a busy year. When I started writing, I never thought I would imagine the response with the Treasure Cove Series. Those hot cowboys have kept me extremely busy along with the upcoming third installment of the Armstrong Brothers of Cedar Creel, due out January 24, 2014! However, through all the sex and hunk-a-licious man candy, I have managed my time well. I will be continuing with the Men of Treasure Cove in the coming year, while starting a new series called “Simple, Tennessee”. There are definitely more hot men on the horizon as the New Year is banging on the door. Big changes are coming and the best is yet to come!  

It’s Christmas time in Treasure Cove! As the town gears up for the upcoming holidays, two sisters learn how gloomy the holidays can really get. Janie Hicks has waited for her good news ever since she married the Jeff and Caleb Hicks. Now that it’s happened, she is learning that having it all isn’t all that its cracked up to be.

Charlotte Connelly, is more than any one person can handle. Thank goodness, she has two husbands who are eager to help. If only she would let them. Determined to have everything her way, she learns that just maybe, something’s are better left undone.


When all of towns residents rally to help two of their own, they all soon realize that this Christmas, is going to be one for the history books. Because when the town of Treasure Cove gets together to celebrate the holidays’, anything that can happen, generally does.

WILLOW BROOKE: Thank you Laurie so much for inviting me back to play. This is my favie blog event ever! 2013 has been a roller coaster of ups and downs for me. In march, I published my very first book ever, and since have pumped out seven more, with two awaiting publication. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be where I am now. This has been the greatest experience. I have met so many wonderful dearest friends, and learned so much about not only the writing world, but about myself. I have grown and learned so very much since that first book, and am so honored to be a part of the writing community. I have found my true calling, and wake up every morning so very humbled and excited! Thanks to all of the amazing readers out there, I am living my dream! 



In book two of Breaking Protocol: With the battle heating up, the team enlists four more soldiers, accepting them into their tight knit family. They have worked side-by-side with these men that are highly trained and specialize in extractions. When bullets fly and things turn nasty, the team loses one of their own who is killed saving his troops. 

Another hero taken, another high school sweetheart now a widow, and two more kids who will grow up without their daddy. Bella, her heart and soul shattered as she is faced with the biggest tragedy of her life, spirals into a deep darkness. The world crashes down on her and a friend steps in, pushing the boundaries to get her back. 


Joker hopes for her sake and his, he can keep from crossing the boundaries that will take him to a place he vowed never to go. A bond is formed as two people grieve for the same person- a lover and a husband to one, and the closest thing to a brother for the other. The decision is left in the hands of fate: Will it allow for a second chance in love or is there only one destiny? 


Through the strangling hands of grief, the team readies for the biggest battle of their career. With U.S. politicians involved, their mission is interesting to say the least. If they succeed, they will surely go down in the history books as heroes. If they fail, the consequences could be deadly. With bigger forces than they had ever imagined against them, the team is determined to slam the hammer of justice down on those in the brutal reality that awaits. 


Can they conquer and kill the ones who threaten life as we know it? Can broken hearts be mended through a broken battlefield?

BECCA VAN: I have been really busy with my writing this year, starting and finishing new series as well as re-vamping an old series. Books 1-7 of my Passion, Victoria Series (http://beccavan-eroticromance.com) have been extended re-written and re-edited, but what has been the highlight for my year was writing three new books for Passion, Victoria. These books are so different from the other 7 and I had a fantastic time writing them. I can’t wait for those news stories to be released and am very excited about it. For the last couple of months I have had two books released every two weeks and am humbled and astounded by my loyal followers. It still amazes me every time I get an email questioning when I will write another book for a certain series and I love be able to reply and answer questions from readers. 


Nikki Sprite is a fairly new resident to the town of Passion in Victoria. She has set up an art gallery and her career is just taking off when she meets the three Spencer brothers. Tony, Colt, and Brandon "Bear" Spencer meet Nikki and know she is the one woman meant for them.

They help her out of trouble and seduce her. Nikki runs as she is too scared to commit to anyone and wants to concentrate on her career. The three men recapture her and set about punishing her with their dominant sexuality into telling them she really does have feelings for the three men.


Nikki's ex-boyfriend Bob Hackett arrives on the scene and things start going awry. Will the three men get to her in time or will her insane ex destroy any chance the four people have of happiness?

OLIVIA BLACK: This year has been full of wonderful surprises, blessings, and opportunities. As many of you know, I’ve been writing ménage for Siren Publishing for a couple of years, under the name, Alicia White. Things changed for me though when I wrote my first M/M book, His Little Wolf. After that book, new ideas started flooding my mind and I knew it was time to take a new writing path. I contacted Siren with a new ManLove series after sitting down and plotting ten different books – which now make up, the Silver Bullet series. They accepted me with open arms and now, I’m writing with a brand new name, Olivia Black. As of today, I have completed the first seven books and I’m working on book eight. I’m looking forward to the future and many more books. As the wonderful saying goes, the best is yet to come.

Andrew Porter has been alive for almost two hundred years. He’s had his fill of wild nights. While at the club, Silver Bullet, he gets in an intense scene, completely focused on the other man. It’s nothing unusual for him, just another normal night. During the scene, he’s interrupted by a young shifter and yells at the young man.  


Weeks later, hungry and weak, Andrew’s friends convince him that he’s met his True Match. Now, he needs to find the man and drink before it’s too late.

ERIKA REED: I can honestly say that I consider myself one of those people that are very happy with my life’s accomplishments and count her lucky stars everyday. This year has been the best for me and I know its only going to get better every step of the way. It was a privilege being asked to write with four other fabulous authors in a series that came out in September of this year. Because of them, I will always have a fond memory of all the good times we shared while working on the series together. I don’t know what I would do without my readers or my wonderful author friends that have been there for me every step of the way. I wanted to thank them all and I couldn’t do this without them. I can’t wait to see what life’s challenges bring for me in 2014.

JESS BUFFETT: The best is yet to come? Then I am one lucky girl! My first year as a published author, and I can honestly say I couldn’t have asked for more, it’s been like a dream come true. My first book was actually released on my birthday, April 3rd. Such an amazing birthday present, don’t you think? From there I went to receive great reviews and write more books, both MM and MF. The one thing that surprised me most – besides the fact that people actually liked my books – was the support I received from fellow authors. Some of these people have been my idols long before I thought of writing, and to know how wonderful they are in person? There are no words. I know, I know, I sound like a hallmark card. LOL. But I truly feel like a kid who got everything they wanted from Santa this year.

LORI KING: 2013 was a BIG year for me. I went from juggling a full time job at a bank and writing part time in between my kids social events, to being a full time author and having my 4 year old at home with me all day long. The latter is both a blessing and a curse. I love the time I’ve got now, but have you ever tried writing a hot ménage sex scene with a kid rolling a hot wheel over your computer screen? Ya, not always easy. I published a total of six books this year: Legacy of the Wolf (Jan), Sidney’s Triple Shot (Apr), Dreams of the Wolf (Aug), Point of Seduction (Sept), Weekend Surrender (Sept), and Flawless Surrender (Dec). Considering I had never written a full book until February of 2012, I’m pretty proud of my progress. I have a lot planned for 2014, so stay tuned! 



In book two of the Surrender Trilogy: The strength of a man is in the way he embraces his flaws, instead of denying them.

Zoey Carson has worked nonstop to graduate with her Master’s degree, after managing to survive parents who neglected her in favor of their own addictions.  Her future of helping children overcome their childhood is within her grasp until she is knocked down by a surprise visit from her mother.  She finds herself at a crossroads when her longtime crush, Tanner Keegan, comes to her rescue, along with his brothers, Dalton and Clint.  Letting them go might help her avoid getting hurt, but the outcome—she would continue to live a lonely, empty life. 


The Keegan brothers finally come together after spreading themselves across the globe for more than a decade.  Each fighting his own personal battle with the past and future, but there is no question that Zoey turns them all on.  Who will risk the pain of baring their soul for the promise of a happy future, and who will succumb to their weaknesses? 


Return to Stone River, Texas, where the Keegan brothers work together to win the heart of the woman made for them.  Enjoy the journey as Zoey decides if she can be their…Flawless Surrender.

SAGE MARLOWE: It’s hard to say what was the best about 2013 for me because it’s been a very exciting and incredibly busy year. I released an amazing amount of books, celebrated my first anniversary as a published author in May with a blog tour and met a ton of wonderful people along the way. What may be the biggest highlight of 2013 though is probably the realisation that I will not have to go back to my old job next year. If my writing-related career keeps running the way it does right now, I’ll actually be able to turn working with books into a day job—and that, for me, is one of my biggest dreams come true. 



Dreams can come true—but sometimes nightmares are very real, too. 

When Michael—Mikey—Fawkes bags himself a job as a handyman for a film production company and meets his favourite actor, gay porn star Colin Meighan, he believes his dream has come true. Colin indeed appears to be a dream turned to flesh. Handsome, young and as insatiable sexually as the roles he plays suggest, he makes his way into Mikey’s bed and introduces him to unknown carnal pleasures. 

A slick lover and sweet talker, Colin also finds a place in Mikey’s heart, but as Mikey lets his new lover lure him deeper and deeper into a world of decadent on- and off-screen sex, their indulgences begin to take their toll on Mikey. Curious to find out more about the strange and inexplicable effect Colin has on his sex partners, Mikey discovers that there is a terrible reason why one man alone can never be enough to satisfy Colin’s hunger and he realises that dreams can come true—but sometimes nightmares are very real, too.

CLAIRE DE LUNE: "Always look on the bright side of life," the song says. 2013 has flown past. It's been a year of ups and downs but is ending on a high note for me. For a whole year I sweated over my new series. It never seemed to be just right, then an idea came to me and that was it, finished.

It started to climb the M/F charts after being on pre-order for one day. I am lucky to have such loyal readers. I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and every good fortune in 2014.

JAN BOWLES: Well, 2013 was a good year for me. I added 6 new books to my growing catalogue. I also started two new series ~ The Billionaires and Their Playgrounds, and Carnal Sins, plus I was also honored to be chosen to launch Siren's new imprint ~ LoveEdge. I'd say 2013 was a good year for me. As December 1st approached, I also celebrated 4 years as a published author, because my first book, 'The Return' came out exactly 4 years ago. A lot has certainly changed since then, and there have been many ups and downs along the way, but through it all I can say that I am so lucky to doing something I truly love. A big thank you to everyone who as helped make this year so memorable. My publisher, Siren, my author friends of which there are far too many to name, but most of all to the readers who have taken the time to read my books, because without you none of this could happen. Who knows what 2014 will bring :-)



Twenty-seven-year-old Kendall van Heusen is in awe of her new boss, and so she should be, because Mac Buchanan, the legendary thirty-eight-year-old newspaper magnate is as powerful and ruthless as rumor suggests. Incredibly handsome and charismatic, Mac is a self-made man who rules his empire with an iron fist. Deeply attracted by his dominant nature, Kendall realizes she needs to be on top of her game as his new financial controller. 

It soon becomes apparent that they share a mutual sexual attraction. However, before they can act on their desires, Kendall receives a kidnap demand for the safe return of her best friend. Forced into stealing a million bucks from Buchanan Enterprises, she wrongly believes she can cover her tracks long enough to save Ashley’s life.    


When Mac discovers the deception, he is angry and gives Kendall an ultimatum—spend time in jail, or become his personal sex slave until the debt is repaid in full. Unable to tell him the truth, will Kendall be blackmailed into the billionaire’s bed?

DIXIE LYNN DWYER: As I look back at 2013, I feel accomplished, and proud of the many new books, and series I have added. Along the way my writing has continued to grow, and the creative mind was definitely in full force. With my two new best selling series of books, The American Soldier Collection, and The Power Surge Series, I have become inspired to continue to write, and come up with new, and exciting books for my readers. Anyone who knows Dixie, knows that my readers are most important to me. The biggest blessing of 2013 has been meeting so many fantastic, energetic, thoughtful, and caring readers who really, truly understand my writing, my way of telling each story, and I love them for it. My Face Book family grew so big in 2013, and I hope my fans continue to be loyal readers, and share their feedback with me. It's been an amazing year. 

As I look to 2014, and what is yet to come, as well as what my readers are demanding more of, I promise to give them exactly what they are hoping for. Incredible romance, they can feel through the pages of the books. Hot, sexy, authentic men, they could practically reach out and touch, and that fulfilled feeling I always like to have when I finish reading a book. No loose ends, no question that there is a happy ever after, and the feeling of excitement that more is yet to come. My readers know my motto, "I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar." So know that the heroines will continue to be strong, independent women, in search of true love, and their destiny. 

I am beginning 2014 with three new crossover books to the FIVE-O Series and my original WERE SERIES. From there, another new book series begins (Series Title a secret), as well as the continuation of The Town of Pearl. Many ideas and books are in the works, both traditional erotic ménage romance, as well as erotic, paranormal, ménage, romance. I'll be working hard to give my readers exactly what they are craving. So enjoy the holiday season, and bringing in the new year with excitement, and anticipation of what is yet to come. I promise to keep on writing, "Dixie Style," just the way my readers want me to. Sending a great big hug to each and every one of you.



J.J. Jacobs is one sexy, undercover cop. A Vegas showgirl, she escaped death only to be hunted by the killer and his cohorts. Calder Murphy, Conway Lewis, Brook Lewis, and Lincoln Jones are retired Special Forces and set on keeping her alive, especially since others have failed her. She’s combative, untrusting, negative, and on the edge of a breakdown. She’s not convinced that they can be trusted, despite their military backgrounds, all those muscles, and take no prisoners attitudes.

Some sparring on the mat, combative personalities, sexual tension, and it’s the perfect combination for heated passion. But with her life on the line, and a need to capture a high profile killer, could their own fears and unwillingness to trust send her right into the pathway of the killer?

~ Sexy Sneak Peek: 3013: MATED ~


Want a sneak peek at my new release? Well, here it is! Here are two excerpts from 3013: MATED!

Look for it on Amazon, Smashwords and ARe on December 19th! 



STORY EXCERPT

“Commander, sir! The Dragon Warrior visitors have arrived early and are waiting for permission to enter the shield.”
Jax heaved out a sigh. “Shit, they’re early. Ryans, open the shield and give them the coordinates over the Capital where they can enter our airspace. Have them land here in Dock C.”
“Right away, Commander Spartan.”
Officer Ryans relayed the information into his comms as he typed frantically on the tablet he held in his hand.
“Well, it looks like I’ll be acting as liaison after all,” Alexis said nervously. She’d thought she would have a few days to sort out the assignment, but it didn’t seem like that was an option anymore. Even though she was a little worried, a part of her was excited to spend some time with visitors from Arcadia. She’d studied the Dragon Warriors, but had never actually met one in person.
Suck it up, she told herself. Shaking off her nerves, she straightened to her full height. She was a top-level officer for god’s sake.
She could…would handle this assignment.
Jax crossed his arms over his chest as his eyes narrowed. “I still don’t like this, Lex. I never thought Farris would be stupid enough to assign one of our female officers for this visit. You don’t have to take this assignment if you’re uncomfortable with it. I can order a replacement. Taking care of four men would be difficult for anyone.”
“I believe she will be more than capable.”
The deep voice that sounded out right behind her had Alexis spinning around, one hand on the hilt of the blaster at her hip. No one could have snuck up on both her and Jax without making a sound, not with their training.
But someone had.
Oh, my stars…
Her eyes widened at the sight of the four giant warriors that seemed to appear right out of one of her wildest, sex-starved fantasies. Standing at well over seven feet tall, far bigger than any of the elite soldiers she was used to being around, the four men towered over her with their powerfully built frames.
They each wore black leather pants paired with matching soft leather vests that left their muscular arms bare, except for the dark gold and silver tribal-looking tattoos that started on their shoulders and covered their skin down to their wrists. The marking were similar to the tattoos wore by the elite soldiers that had formed a bonding unit with a claimed woman, except the Dragon Warriors’ were more far more elaborate in detail.
Obviously two sets of brothers, the first pair of warriors had long black hair that flowed loose around their broad shoulders while the other two males had dark brown hair. Each of the males had two small braids fashioned at the sides of their temples, framing strong, perfectly sculpted faces. They had powerful, chiseled jaws, high cheekbones, and lush, sensual lips that she couldn’t help but wonder how they would feel pressed against hers.
Alexis’ breath caught as four pairs of glowing eyes focused directly on her. The two warriors with black hair stared at her with eyes that glowed a bright silver, while the other two had iridescent golden eyes. It was like looking at the sun and moon, and those glowing eyes seemed to pierce straight into her soul.
The alien warriors ignored the elite soldiers converged in a circle around them, and continued watching her with some sort of intense scrutiny she didn’t understand. It was a struggle, but Alexis tore her gaze away from them, finally able to take a deep breath now that she had broken the thrall they seemed to have over her.
She frowned as she looked around at the soldiers training their weapons on the newcomers. It wasn’t often that alien visitors had the ability to transport themselves right onto the Earth’s surface, but when they did it made most soldiers nervous. Officer Ryans stared at the alien warriors in awe, as did many of the other soldiers. Hell, Alexis had to admit she was still staring at them herself.
They were truly an impressive sight.
She looked back up at the giant warriors and saw what could only be described as amusement on the face of the male with golden eyes standing on the far right, while the male with silver eyes on the far left surveyed the soldiers with narrowed eyes. No matter the relaxed stances the visitors had taken, Alexis could sense that they were prepared for anything. It was in their tightly coiled muscles and their watchful gazes.
The two warriors in the middle ignored their surroundings, never once looking away from her. Both of their gazes were like a physical caress over her skin and her body heated in response. The intensity of their focus made her feel vital and alive. Christ, her reaction to them was completely inappropriate, but she couldn’t help but imagine seeing their impressive bodies without clothing, sliding against hers.
Focus, Donovan.
“Perhaps we should say we come in peace,” the golden-eyed brother on the right said with a sardonic smile.


ADULT EXCERPT

“I want you,” she whispered, her voice shaking with nerves. “I do want all four of you, but I’m scared about what will happen…”
“Then let this be enough for now,” Galan replied.
She nodded and watched as both of their silver eyes blazed with a hunger. Her breath caught as Galan’s lips came down to meet hers, taking her in a soft, searing kiss that make her tremble. Alexis angled her head, needing to get closer to him and gasped as she felt Xavier come up behind her, reaching around to cup her full breasts in his large hands.
She lost herself in the kiss, immersing herself in the feel of them, loving their hands on her body. When she pulled back, she blinked in surprise as she suddenly realized that Xavier had removed her uniform top and bra while she had been busy kissing Galan. Her skin was flush with arousal, her nipples hard points that were aching to be touched.
As if sensing what she wanted, Galan lowered to his knees in front of her.
“These are perfect,” he purred moving his head to suck her nipples. Her head fell back on Xavier’s chest, trusting him to hold her up as Galan sucked on one nipple then switched to the other, lashing the taut bud with his tongue before sucking hard. She could feel each pull of his mouth like a lightning bolt that shot straight to her core. Xavier turned her head and settled his mouth over hers, forcing his tongue deep with a growl that made her weak with need.
They were taking her over and she let them. Galan’s hands made quick work removing her boots then he went to work on her pants, also pulling her panties down her legs so she was standing naked between them.
“You are a vision, sweetling. A dream come true,” Galan said reverently.
“Perfection,” Xavier agreed with a rumbling purr. “I cannot wait to feel your beautiful body welcoming me inside you.” Their words made her shiver and she gripped Xavier’s head, pulling it back down to her so she could kiss him again.
More, she needed more.
Sharp hunger drove Alexis to rub her body back against Xavier, loving the feel of his steel- hard erection against her back. They were so much bigger than her, but she felt completely safe in their arms, sheltered between them. A gasp tore from her lips as Xavier lowered his hand between her legs, circling her clit with his finger.
Xavier drank down her moan as he pushed two fingers into her slick heat. She was dripping wet, and it pleased him to feel how much she wanted them. Never before had just seeing a female made his cock grow hard as stone.  He let out a growl as he stared down at her beautiful body, running one of his hands over her lush curves and hips as he used his other to push his fingers inside her. His body trembled with need to take her…to bend her over the couch and ram his cock deep into her tight pussy until he filled her with his seed, but she wasn’t ready yet. They were so much bigger than their tiny mate, and he knew his large cock would hurt her if she wasn’t prepared to take him.
“So wet,” Xavier purred against her ear. “Do you like the pleasure we are giving you, little one? Tell us. Tell us what you want, Alexis.”
“Oh, god. I want you,” she panted, moaning as he began to finger fuck her faster as Galan went back to work sucking on her nipples. “Please, Xavier. Please…”
“You shall have us,” Xavier promised in a dark, heated growl. He wrapped his other arm around her middle, holding her back against him. “We will fill you so full you will not remember what it is like not to have us inside you, but first we need to make you come. Our cocks are large and we do not want to hurt you.”
“I have lube in a drawer by my bed in the other room,” she explained then winced at how that sounded. “Most relationships now are ménage so I’ve been with two men at—”
Both males snarled, cutting her off. “We do not want to hear about you with any other males. You belong to us now,” Xavier growled dangerously.
Alexis felt something inside of her shift. Normally, that kind of statement would have put her back up, but coming from them, it only enhanced her need. She wanted to belong to them. Everything they had said to her was like something out of her wildest fantasy. It was almost unimaginable how four strong Dragon Warriors would want someone like her when they could have anyone they wanted. She pushed that thought away, simply letting herself enjoy the moment as she ground her ass back against Xavier, making him suck in a harsh breath.
“Then take me,” she challenged.
