AuThursday – Anneka Ever

Anneka Ever Head Shot (1)

Please welcome fellow LSB author Anneka Ever to the Clog Blog!  Woot! Woot! Let’s get down to it, shall we?

Q: What books have most influenced your life most?

The Lord of the Rings is my favorite book. I’ve read it more than 50 times. The works of Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, and Stephen King. It’s strange that I ended up writing romance.

Q:  If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Rita Sims Quillen (author of Her Secret Dream, Counting the Sums, and Hiding Ezra) has been my teacher and cheerleader. She’s very generous with her time and wisdom.

Q: Do you have a specific writing style?

I try to write with clarity and beautiful language. I hope that comes through in my work.

Q: What inspired you to write Riverswept?

I wanted to write a love letter to the mountains of Virginia. The final story turned out completely different from the first draft, but my love for the mountains remains evident throughout Riverswept.

Q: How much research did you conduct for Riverswept  and what was the most interesting thing you did while conducting your research?

Most of the research I conducted concerned the biodiversity of the Clinch River and the endangered species that call it home. My other research was hands-on activities, such as kayaking down the river. In Riverswept, the Clinch River became the Burns River.

Q: What was the most difficult aspect of writing Riverswept?

Revisions. Writing the first draft was fun but revising seemed more like work.

Q: What are your current projects?

Right now I’m working on another romance set in the fictional town of Burns, the town where Riverswept takes place. My Riverswept couple make a brief cameo appearance in this new book, but its main focus is a new couple.

Saturday Sexcerpt – Love & History by Cheryl Dragon

Love & History
Masters Wanted Book 1
M/F Light BDSM Erotic RomanceBlurb:

Where are all the bedroom Doms? Sick of men pushing her limits, Bridget Sanger brings up the issue on her secret blog. Bridget is ready to give up on kinky love and focus on her career. The blog is supposed to be her last rant, but it takes off. A meddling coworker tracks the page to her and knows the perfect Dom for Bridget.

Stuffy-outside-hot-inside History professor, Scott Kasten finds Bridget an intriguing challenge. History has taught him love never lasts, but their kink could be forever. She’s never thought of Scott like that, but it turns her on all the more to see his sexual side. He’s a man of his word, and she trusts him with her body. The sex is amazingly intense, but she wants a real relationship, and she won’t settle!

Caution:  Light  BDSM Play ahead.  A Sexy Excerpt from Love & History…

She unbuttoned her skirt and slid it down to the floor. Stepping out of her pumps, she regretted wearing boring cotton cream and paisley panties. They did match her bra but were bikini cut, if it helped. “I have lace and satin at home.”

“I have nothing against cotton.” He slid his hand from the top of her thigh-high nylons up to her hip and momentarily slipped a finger under the material.

Carefully folding the skirt, she fought the seductive fog he was putting off. She worked free her tiny blouse buttons then slipped it off and set it atop the skirt.

“All of it, Sir?”

He stood and nodded.

Letting the panties fall, she sat on the edge of the chair to roll off the stockings.

“Not those. They can stay,” he said.

Smiling slightly, she kept her eyes down and put the stocking back in place before unhooking her bra. She stood up and waited for more instruction.

“Move over here away from the table.” He pointed to a spot on an area rug in front of his coffee table.

She admired his apartment from what her gaze allowed. It was very manly with dark leather couches and wooden tables. It felt very much like him. Standing on the indicated spot, she waited. Inside her a fire raged for relief, but he’d tease her first. Since he’d walked into her office that morning, she’d been wet and restless for play. Now, she was naked for him.

He was so calm and deliberate that she wanted to rip off his clothes and give in that instant. What a punishment she’d get! But it was their first time, and she wanted to be good. He had to come back for more. Of all the outcomes from that blog, she’d never imagined this!

“Why are you grinning?” He pinched her ass.

“I was thinking that this is the last thing I dreamed of when I wrote that blog last night.” Lying was pointless. He could have her if he wanted.

“I never expected this either.” He caressed her ass cheeks then slapped one of them.

The fire grew, and her skin tingled. “Thank you, Sir.”

“You like it?” he asked in her ear.

“I do. Please, tell me what to do. Let me service you.” She ran her hand along the front of his dress pants.

The view of him, sleeves rolled up as if ready for work, so intent on her made her feel the complete opposite from last night. He wanted her. His cock pulsed under her touch before he pushed her hand away. This was special. When he smacked her ass twice on each cheek, harder than before, she knew she was where she belonged. Moaning softly, she closed her eyes as the wetness in her pussy grew.

“Take that clip out of your hair,” he said.

She obeyed quickly. He took it from her then played with it along her sensitive breasts.

“Please,” she said.

“What?” he asked. “You don’t like it?”

“No, I love it. Nipple clamps, clothes pins, I love it.” She could nearly get off on rough breast play, but he’d learn that.

“Then please what?” he asked, standing dead in front of her and very close.

The scent of him was like books with a hint of musk. “Please, Sir, let me see you.”

“Ah. Fair is fair.” He stepped back. “But I don’t think this game is fair.”

“At least, your shirt, please. I promise I won’t touch unless you allow it.” She fought the urge to tear his shirt open and lick his chest.

“What do you want right now?” he asked.

“To rip your clothes and suck your cock, Sir.” The words flew without shame. There was a bit of relief behind them. The anticipation of what would come next charged her.

“You may unbutton my shirt,” he said.

Her hands flew to his chest and carefully worked the buttons loose. When she spread the fabric, she nearly fell to her knees. All the hard muscle and teasing layer of chest hair she’d imagined were true. His broad shoulders and strong arms were so sexy, and she couldn’t stop herself. She kissed the center of his chest and licked to taste his skin.

“You’re a bad girl,” he said.

“I’ve been deprived of the right way, the right release, for so long. I can take the punishment for my crimes, Sir.” She knelt, letting her tongue drag down his hard abs and over his belt. She kissed his erection through the dress pants and inhaled deeply.

His hand fisted in her hair and pulled her back. “No, you don’t get to taste first. Get in there, on the bed. Don’t touch anything!” He pointed to the hall.

“Yes, Sir.” She crawled and hoped he’d give her everything she deserved. Kneeling on the bed, she folded her hands in her lap. She’d seen handcuffs, toys and other fun things on his dresser. He’d planned for her like this. The thrill took her deeper into wanting to please him. As much as her cunt throbbed for attention, she needed his attention everywhere.

He walked in, and she looked. Then she stared. He was naked, and his thick cock made her body shiver at the thought of riding him.

“Hands behind your head. Lie back flat on the bed,” he said.

That was definately Sinfully Hot.  You can buy Love and History here:

AuThursday – Cheryl Dragon

Please join me today  welcoming fellow RP writer Cheryl Dragon.  Welcome Cheryl.  So Cheryl, how long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing in various genres since after college. I dabbled to find my voice and strengths. Finally I found erotic romance and sold my first book in 2006.

 Q:  Do you have a specific writing style?

I tend to write tight and fast paced. Lots of hot stuff…

Q: Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

Not usually. If I hit a wall, I’ll change books and usually that works.

Q:  How much of your books are realistic?

Lol…well, I write a lot of ménage stories but I think that people could do that if they wanted toJ With the exception of my paranormals…I think my books/characters are fairly realistic. A lot of people experiment with sex, be it BDSM play or other ways. It’s just not something people talk about openly.

Q:  Would you tell us your story of getting “the call?”

 I never got a call, but I got an email from my first EC editor. I’d had a request for a full before a big conference. I had a pitch appointment with EC at the conference. Talk about crossed wires! After the conference, a day or two, I got the email that EC wanted the book! That was the summer of 2006 so there were fewer epubs back then.

 Q:  What do you think is the biggest misconception in erotic romance fiction?

The biggest misconception is that it’s all sex and basically porn for women. There is a lot of sex but also a lot of emotion as well. The romance is a big part of it. Readers want an emotionally satisfying ending! They want the fantasy of the perfect partner who understands AND sexually thrills the heroine.

 Q: Have you ever been asked to “sex-up or sex-down your books”?

No, I’ve never been asked. Normally I have a lot of sex in my books but no complaints.

 Q:  What is on tap for 2013?

 Tons! The first book in my new Masters Wanted series—Love & History — released January 9th! It’s M/F Light BDSM contemporary erotic romance. I don’t write hardcore BDSM and I wanted a series that reflected the BDSM stuff that I enjoy/write. So the series is centered on heroines who aren’t necessarily new to being submissive. They knew how they want to play and are looking for Masters…specifically Bedroom Doms who don’t need to frequent clubs, groups, or show off in front of others to enjoy satisfy their subs.

 Love & History is the first book in Masters Wanted and available at Resplendence Publishing and All Romance eBooks

 Also at the end of January, I have my first Siren release with two things I love! Ménage + erotic romance and wine… Make sure to check out Pinot Noir Nights!

 2013 is already pretty busy!

 Don’t miss my All Male Nudes! Series. Book one is out, Hot Rivals, and more are coming. MM yummy stripper fun.

 Plus I’m up for a CAPA award over at TRS. Keep your fingers crossed that 4 Bikers & A Witch wins for Best Paranormal Romance!

Until then be Naughty,

AuThursday – Cheryl Dragon

Please join me in welcoming fellow Resplendence Author Cheryl Dragon.  Welcome Cheryl, so how long have you been writing?

In my head, always. Seriously, since my early twenties. If I didn’t write, I think I’d go crazy!

Q:  Do you have a specific writing style?

I don’t know how specific it is. I tend to be more casual in feel and fast paced. I hate getting bogged down in tons of mundane detail and description when there’s so much to tell. My intention is to get the important stuff there and let the reader experience the story unfolding.

Q: Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?

Writer’s block is rare since I am constantly getting new ideas. The harder part is focusing on the book I need to finish and ignore the new ideas bugging me. If I can’t ignore the idea, I write down notes so I won’t forget it and then I can get back to the story at hand.

For true writer’s block, I’ll change to a different story. Since I write mostly novellas and short stories, it’s not a big deal to switch when one isn’t working. I always go back to a story. Sometimes the click of what a character wants just takes a little time.

 Q:  How much of your books are realistic?

Unless we’re talking about my paranormals, it’s all realistic. There may be a bit of a fantasy element to some people. Most of my writing is contemporary. I write a lot of ménage which some people might feel isn’t realistic in a long term relationship but stranger things have happened. BDSM, m/m, ménage…it all happens or we wouldn’t be so interested in it. I’ll admit, it’s not common but that’s what makes it even hotter.

Q:  Would you tell us your story of getting “the call?”

The call was actually an email from Ellora’s Cave. I’d been trying traditional romance publishers and it never worked. Everyone loved my hot love scenes so I thought I’d give erotic romance a try. Since then it’s been a wild ride!

 Q:  What do you think is the biggest misconception in erotic romance fiction?

 The biggest misconception is it’s all about the erotic sex. Or that it’s porn. Women’s sexuality has been repressed for centuries and this genre gives women what they want. The romance, the emotional connections, and the amazing sex focused on their needs. Here women get their fantasies fulfilled.

Q: We all know “SEX” sells, have you ever been asked to “sex-up-your books”?

No, I really don’t have that problem. Some pubs might ask that of writers to bulk out a book but I’ve never been asked to do that. I think most writers have a good feeling for the genre they’re writing and what readers want from a story. I want my characters to be happy, find love, and enjoy all the sexual exploration of that relationship. That’s a happy ending! So my heroines and heroes have a lot of great sex while building and exploring their relationship.

 Q:  What is on tap for the rest of 2010?

 My November release is Pushing Penny. A BBW BDSM:

Going to Italy with a sexy man should be hot but for Penny it’s all business. The plus sized designer of plus sized fashions met Grayson Raider at her best friend’s wedding, and now, he’s her bodyguard. While she doesn’t expect trouble, Penny’s rich Texas family is overprotective. She has no reason to protest—Grayson makes her feel safe and beautiful.

Grayson knew the moment he met Penny that she was the challenge he’d been looking for. Confident in her work, Penny needs to let him lead in the bedroom. His Dom side enjoys giving her pleasure and pushing her limits. Being tied up naked by a man she’s paying to protect her is hot enough, but when he starts using mirrors and fashion to drive her crazy, he might just push Penny right out of her comfort zone.

 Coming December 15th!

 Fly Boys

Ménage+

For Laura, dating Craig, an air force pilot, has been nothing but great. Bonding with Craig’s three housemates who served with him has been an experience in military closeness and deep admiration for men in uniform. The news that they’ve shared everything, including women, is arousing and a bit of a challenge. And Laura wants to take it on. The guys ease her into action, and soon, she can’t imagine life any other way—even if one of the guys is a bit reserved with her. But Laura’s biggest adjustment will be to their weird work schedule. Three months on duty and three months on her!
