Burning For You


Burning For You
Fearless 8
by Erzabet Bishop
a Paranormal Romance

Book Description:

Where there’s smoke, there’s dragon fire.
Ordinary girl. Extraordinary fate.

Violet Winters is having a less than perfect day. Her parents are meddling with her love life (again), her wintery magic is kaput and her vivid dreams are coming far too close to reality. When she falls through the ice after seeing her fiancé all close and snuggly with a fellow polar bear, all bets are off. Is she better off dead or will she get another chance at life when a Grimare angel rescues her from her chosen fate?

Fire meets ice and passions ignite.

Dante is a dragon on a mission: fight the string of strange fires springing up around Westmore and find a mate. When his Captain decides to have the men pose for social media shots to garner attention for the station, Dante finds himself in the middle of a steady stream of women after his special strategically placed “fire hose.”

At Hot Whips Café to haggle with the owner for counter space for their new firemen calendar, he meets a woman who sets his inner scales on fire. Can he save her from the machinations of the Fates or will she die a second time by the very threat Dante fights against?
A dragon’s panty melting kiss may just be the wow this curvy girl needs.

Review by pearls
He's a dragon shifter and a firefighter, and he's got a really big hose!  This is a great afternoon read.  Violet's winter magic may be just the right to create some fire and ice nights.  But first they have to fight an arsonist and the Fates who want her dead.  But first she must learn to accept her own self worth.  With a "guardian" angel and her mate behind her, Violet learns to find her inner power, but is it in time to save her life? and did I mention the smokin' hot dragon?


Excerpt:
“Come on, Dante, show us a little leg.” The smirking photographer circled in front of him and it was all Dante could do to control the dragon scraping beneath his skin to avoid reaching out and shoving the camera up his ass.

Pictures for social media. The Captain had officially lost his fucking mind. The catcalls and male laughter from the rest of the guys made him lose his footing and the fire hose he’d been using as a prop to conceal his nakedness began to slip.

“Jesus. Fix that hose. This isn’t internet porn, you know.” The Captain groused, scowling.

Dante scrambled to catch the hose and cover himself and balanced against the newly washed and waxed fire engine, trying to pretend he was anywhere else but standing like a prize bull at an auction.

“If you’ll hold still, please. The others have already contributed their shots. You’re the last one.” The cameraman huffed, turning the lens. He lowered the camera and glared at Dante. “You could smile maybe?”

Shit. He was distracted by the wacked out dream he’d had the night before. A woman he’d never met swam in front of him, dying. Her long black hair fanned out in the cold, dark water and he’d panicked. He’d told her to live.

“Fine.” Dante growled, a wisp of smoke curling out from behind his lips. He felt the change sliding beneath his skin, the dragon agitated by his distress.

“God, Dante. Come on.” Carter laughed. “You aren’t afraid of a little flashing light, are you?” The rest of the crew laughed, sharing in the good natured ribbing.

“Bastard.”

He just wanted it to be over. His beast wanted to fly and hunt and if he didn’t get out of here soon, he was going to lose his mind. Most of the men here were either dating or married.  He wasn’t and the urge to mate had made his already bad temper even worse.

The Captain had lured him and the others in with the promise of a social media boost to help the department. He figured a couple of pictures for Instagram like that vet that had so many followers it was insane. Model pretty with a gaggle of women trailing behind him like no tomorrow. The guy had even been on national television recently. Cap was dreaming, but he also knew the man would do anything to save their department from going strictly volunteer.

So many in the country had gone that route and the bear shifter was fighting it tooth and claw. Dante supported that. He’d moved from his home in the mountains to come here after his buddy Carter had told him about the job. Happy and with a large family of cat and dragon shifter young, his friend would do anything to ensure things stayed status quo. So would he, and apparently that included standing naked in front of a freshly polished firetruck.

Thank God his mother couldn’t see him or he’d never hear the end of it. She’d been writing him emails nonstop asking if he’d met any promising women. Jesus. He’d never seen a woman more eager to fuss over grandchildren. But he hadn’t and the prospects didn’t look very favorable. Not that he hadn’t dated. He had. But no female he’d met even sparked his interest past the typical curves and tight jeans and it wasn’t enough. Not anymore.

He wanted a mate. Someone to come home to and warm his bed and his heart. Most of the women he’d come across only wanted one thing—to bang a fireman and brag to their friends.

“Well, that’s about as good as I’m going to get if you’re going to scowl like that.” The photographer capped his lens and sighed, stalking off toward the Captain. “You can get dressed now.”

“Jerk.” Dante swiped the robe he’d worn from the floor and shrugged into it.

“Man, you really need to learn to crack a smile, buddy.” Carter grinned as he and a few of the others approached now that the photographer had gone.

“Thank you, guys. Dante.” The Captain came forward giving Dante a narrow eyed look, then nodded toward the remainder of the group. “We should see the finished product in a day or so.”

Wait. Product?

Crave: Desire Reigns Supreme


Crave
by Erzabet Bishop
 Genre: BDSM, Suspense, Menage (MFM)
 Publisher: ARe Books

 Book Description:

 In the darkness of night, desire reigns supreme.

 The sins of the past live on in the present…

 Carefree submissive Linnet Adams is living the dream with a promising future, another semester of school under her belt, and best of all, the devotion of Master Gage. Her life at Crave, the city’s most exclusive BDSM club, is everything to her until she’s thrust into a living nightmare.

 Seven years, seven murders…

 Ryder, a male submissive at Crave, is devoted to the lifestyle and one very hard to pin down Domme. He is also a Doctor of Psychology specializing in BDSM related crimes. When yet another murder occurs, he is asked to assist Detective Linnet Adams. Sometimes the truth is hiding in plain sight, and all it can take is one kiss.

 The whisper of the cane can bring them heaven or hell…

 Gage still dreams about the sub who got away. Linnet was his fantasy girl and the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. As the new owner of Crave, he still can’t get her out of his mind.

 A discovery is about to rock his world and bring the past and future colliding together. If only he has the courage to embrace it.

Review by pearls
When her past and future collide, Linnette must make a decision, she can have everything or lose everything.  In a simpler more innocent time, she was happy to serve.  Now the sole survivor of a mad man's killing spree, she wants to put all that she associates with that night and be the one in control.  But the control is just a mask, a façade she hides behind.  As she works to stop the killer, she must also reconcile her past and her present, finding a way to let both sides of her co-exist.  I love Gage and Ryder, and can see why she has such a hard decision. And the scene in the private room with all 3 plus the killer is exciting. I do find it hard to believe that Gage and Linnette never ran into each other over the course of 5 years.  It only goes to show, though, how much the experience changed her.  I would be interesting in reading more about how things work out for them after the Linnette's final decision is made.    

  Excerpt:

 It had been a rough week, and her exams were finally done, freeing up more of her time to devote to Master Gage. Just the thought of her dark haired, muscular Dom sent shivers down her spine. The good kind.  “Master Gage said we had to keep everything low key until the semester was over. I just hope he’ll make it in tonight. He texted me he was going to be late and to help with the visitors.”

“Maybe he wants you to help the new guy feel at home.” Her best friend April grinned and spun from side to side on the bar stool, her feet dangling. “He’s supposed to be Master Gage’s special guest.” She polished off her cranberry juice and turned to slide the empty glass across the bar to Bernie.

“Thanks.”

“No problem.” The large black man smiled, his eyes dancing merrily. Everyone understood Bernie was the biggest teddy bear in the place, but if anyone threatened one of the subs, he would rival even the toughest Dungeon Monitor. “You girls be careful tonight. The boys upstairs are on another membership drive, and I’m not so sure they checked out everyone like they normally do.”

“Hmmm.” She eyed the charismatic blond man from across the room. He was surrounded by women, each one eager to get a taste. “God. It’s like a feeding frenzy.”

April laughed. “It is. I hope they leave more than the bones for whoever gets him tonight.” Her Domme Evelyn waved at her from the St. Andrew’s cross. “Look, I have to go. Mistress Evelyn is summoning me. You have a great time, honey, and give me a call tomorrow.”

“Will do.” Linnet picked up her ginger ale and took a small sip. She tugged down her frilly micro skirt and checked her corset to make sure everything was in place. It felt good to sit down. The new black heels she’d worn tonight were absolutely killing her, and it hadn’t even been two hours yet. 

Bernie narrowed his eyes, his lips turning down in disapproval as he gazed at the blond. “You be careful around that one, Linnet. There’s been talk.”

Linnet cocked her head. “What kind of talk?”

“The kind that makes me want to throw his ass out the front door and not care where it lands. I can’t believe he wormed his way in here.”

“Really?”

“Just don’t let yourself be alone with him, okay?”

“Point taken.” She swallowed the last of her drink and heaved herself off the stool and back onto the floor. Her feet still hurt, but at least it was a little better after sitting. “I’d better make my way into the fray. If Master Gage comes in and sees me sitting, I’ll get my backside warmed but good.”

Bernie chuckled. “You know you like it when that man paddles you. Hell, he could paddle me anytime.”

“Naughty, Bernie.” Linnet giggled.

“Don’t you know it, babe. Now you watch yourself, you hear?”

“I will. Don’t worry.”

A Lucky Stars author blog takeover

Lucky Stars Box Set
 Amazon – only .99!


Hi!

 My name is Christine Ashworth, and I’m just one of the authors of the Lucky Stars Box Set that’s been invited by Inner Goddess to invade the blog today.

 
The Lucky Stars Box Set contains “Seven sexy Sci Fi and Paranormal romance short stories from some of the hottest names in romance.” We thought you’d like a bit of background for how we came up with our stories, and so we oblige…

 
Louisa Bacio, author of LUCKY CHARMS, has this to say about her story… “I completely blame Kim & Solera, who put out the call with the March 17 release date. I thought, "Yeah, what would they want, a leprechaun romance?" And then I came up with my opening line. It all flowed from there.”

 
Here’s Kim Carmichael’s insight for MADE FOR LOVE: “I was inspired by what someone who had a lot of emotion could do, if coupled with someone who never learned emotion.”

 

Solera Winters has this to say about THE LAST DATE: “The Last Date" was inspired by Kim Carmichael’s book Eternity. Back when she wrote her story I started thinking of a cupid story too. After all, the Greek gods were my main interest. When I started doing some research, I ran across Anteros, who definitely intrigued me. I wrote an opening (the part about him avenging an unrequited lover) and put it aside while I worked on other things. When the Lucky Stars Box Set came up, I thought of that story again, and thought it could work as a short. I was one of those women who waited a long time to find love, and while I never had a certain number of dates, I could relate to Vikki's issues. I was delighted Vikki Godwin and Tony Anteros found their happily ever after.”

 

My story, THORNE’S ROSE, was inspired by a Grimm’s fairy tale called “The Rose.” I took the story, shook it out and twisted it so; rather than the character dying when the rose bloomed, a prize-winning rose bush, one that hadn’t bloomed in a hundred years, wouldn’t bloom until two long-dead lovers were reunited. Hollister and Emmalee have to reverse a curse her ancestor put upon his family, in order for them to achieve their own happy ever after.

 

Erzabet Bishop says this about her story, TAMING THE BEAST: “It was inspired by my love of fairy tales and the need to bring the modern woman into a place where the tales related to her. BBW (Big, beautiful women) are often overlooked in romance and I wanted the chance to show that we are people too. We love, play with dogs, have fun and can handle anything a wicked witch can throw at us. Especially when it involves the people and animals we love. I hope you enjoy my Beauty and the Beast meets the Bachelor tale and you never know...this one could just very possibly grow from a novella to a novel.”

 

And we’re on to Fred T.  Kerns’ story, MISSION TO BELLATRIX.  Now, Fred has been in seclusion the past couple of days, working hard on his next book, so here’s a brief blurb…Kolya Mason, a young adventurer with a badly scarred face, has been hitchhiking on starships for several years. Now, she boards a ship leaving Terran-controlled space for the first time, joining a science team investigating the reappearance of a long-lost spacecraft. She's accompanied by a gorgeous young man who insists on tagging along ... but what's he up to? Is he genuinely attracted to her, or does he have some other agenda?” This book features several characters first introduced in GAME OVER. Fred is also looking to expand this story into a full length novel.

 

And last but not least, we come to the Bad Boy of Romance himself, Sascha Illyvich.  Here’s what he has to say… "The inspiration for SUBMIT TO HIM came from a bratty submissive I once owned, who really believed she was unlovable.  A BBW, though she found herself unattractive, her Prince saw the beauty in her and told her to start changing her outlook by changing what she wore.  I was lingerie shopping for myself one night and convinced her to look at some stuff online.  Her natural curiosity got the best of her and she ended up getting a red lace boyshort and bra set.  Yet she needed more, a real hard lesson in what a gift her submissive tendencies were, so I wrote her into the Reinhold series and gave her what she wanted; to be treated like an adult and forced to deal with real world problems, including her own, by adulting.

 

This project has been an absolute blast to participate in, and I hope you’ll give us a try.
