I’m happy to offer you all the next book in the Starving Artist Series – Last Virgin in Vegas. Enjoy this blurb, excerpt and Lovely new Cover by Valerie Tibbs.

Blurb:

Every man dreams of two women in his bed, right?

So why does Lance Lott’s life seem less than perfect, since he and his long-time girlfriend Sydney slept with Gwen McIver?

Lance can’t stop obsessing about Gwen and he’s trying to get a new casino project off the ground. Things wouldn’t be so bad if he didn’t have to deal with his former-showgirl turned match-making mother – who is screaming for him to give up his architecture business and become a magician.

What’s an architect to do when all he has designs on is his lover’s best friend?

Excerpt:

Good for nothing bastard! How could he treat Sydney this way?

Gwen fumed, pacing the floor of the spacious hotel suite. She was wearing a pattern in the carpet with her back and forth between the phone and the door. Lance-a-not had decided to be a big no-show. Luckily, Syd was out with some fellow writers at a local jazz club. Hopefully her friend could forget the insensitive jackass masquerading as a man.

Gwen tried to remember what she had seen in him. Oh yeah…his marine-blue eyes, the ebony hair falling over his brow, his sculpted arms and a chest that made her hands itch to feather across it. In her memory, his arms were powerful, his entire frame screaming linebacker.

Gwen felt herself grow damp with anticipation and admitted her own disappointment over his last-minute cancellation. She should be relieved. She didn’t want to watch Lance and Sydney moon over each other, not when she lusted after what she couldn’t have.

She leaned against the wall and crossed her arms, staring out the French doors into the night sky. Lance hadn’t come, and it was for the best. He was a difficult man to ignore. It was a crime to fall for a man who belonged to your best friend, but if he’d been single, she would have pursued him…maybe even ruthlessly.

She’d been unable to stop herself when Sydney propositioned her a year ago with the temptation of joining the two in the bedroom. Lance and Sydney had dated for years, but something about him made Gwen want him for herself. She knew her passion was teetering on the edge of something more, and it wasn’t something she could explain easily. She also knew it wasn’t worth her friendship with Syd. After the ménage a trios, she had left without delay, flying back to Minneapolis, hiding from the lust and guilt, which surfaced far too easily. The memories of their love play were embedded in her mind.

A knock on the door interrupted her musings. Sydney must have forgotten her key—it was too late to be anyone else. But when Gwen opened the door, it was to find her unwanted obsession in the hall.

*

Lance stared, the champagne bottle he’d brought as a peace offering dangling from one hand. He hadn’t expected to find Gwen in Sydney’s room. His eyes raked over her, almost of their own volition.

She wore a long emerald nightgown with skinny straps cut in a deep V with lace barely covering her voluptuous curves. Her beauty was irresistible. The negligee complimented her eyes and cut clear to her hip on one side. Lance ached, wondering if she wore anything underneath.

He found his voice. “What are you doing here?”

“What am I doing here? You called and canceled.”

“I had a change of heart.”

“After you broke Syd’s? Isn’t that convenient.”

God, she was sexy when she was angry. “That still doesn’t explain what you’re doing in her room.”

“Doesn’t it? I moved into her room this morning.”

“Hoping to get lucky?” he goaded, wanting to see fire flash through her eyes. It was masochistic, but he needed it on a level he didn’t quite understand.

“Don’t be crude. Our relationship isn’t like that.”

“What about last year?” Lance was getting hard just thinking about Gwen’s lips around his cock.

“That was different, and you know it.”

“How?”

“It was a one-time thing.”

“So sad.” Lance lowered his head. Gwen didn’t need to see the relief in his eyes. He suspected he wasn’t everything Sydney wanted, but the idea she and Gwen might share the same sexual tastes wasn’t appealing. More than once he’d thought that if the two friends decided to bed down, he would end up alone.

“Arrogant ass,” Gwen said clearly as she walked away. She leaned back on the arm of a nearby brown sofa; unaware that the action lifted the slit of her nightgown higher, revealing she wore nothing beneath it.

“Where is Sydney?”

“Out.”

“For how long?”

“Not sure. She could return at any moment.”

Lance needed to get the man downstairs under control. His attraction to Gwen was intimidating. The reason he felt such overwhelming lust towards a woman he’d not seen in a year unnerved him. “Well, I’m waiting for Syd, so what do you propose we do?” Lance asked.

“How ‘bout a movie?”

“Perfect.” Maybe she’d change to go out; maybe she’d change in front of him. Yeah, it was a pure dude response, but one he couldn’t really squelch. He’d seen her naked, and wanted to see her again.

“I paid for Casablanca.”

“Oh.” He couldn’t help but sound disappointed.

“I think there’s some popcorn in the cupboard next to the fridge.” Gwen pushed away from the chair and walked to the mini-bar. As she walked by him, Lance craned his neck to see if he could catch a glimpse of anything beyond her luscious thigh.

“Okay.” He sighed heavily. He took off his jacket, resigning himself to an evening of a movie and popcorn. It was probably just as well; he wouldn’t want to explain things to Sydney when she arrived. Gwen stood waiting for the popcorn to finish popping, drumming her fingers against the counter. Lance’s cock ached to feel those digits wrapped around his cock. He settled on the sofa, ran his fingers through his hair and exhaled the breath he held.

Gwen strolled leisurely towards him, her hips swaying, before sliding next to him on the couch. She handed him the bowl, and he used it to cover his erection. The television lit up with a movie title: Cock in Bianca. Lance couldn’t help it; he laughed uproariously.

Gwen’s cheeks matched her hair, “Oh, my God.” She stared.

“So this is what you do in your spare time,” he teased.

“No!” Gwen faced him. “I don’t know how this happened.”

“I think you’re trying to provoke me.” He shifted to get more comfortable.

“To do what?” Gwen challenged him and with it he found himself reacting on his most base needs. It was something he’d sworn he would never do, after that night a year ago. Lance accepted that his mind was no longer in control and he gave into his red-haired siren.

“This.” He lifted her stubborn chin upwards, and bent low to kiss her.

Dani Loves Dallas Released

Title:  Dani Loves Dallas

Series:  Caulfield Cowboys Book Two

Author:  Tina Holland

Genre: Contemporary Cowboy Menage a’ Trois 

Release Date:  May 9, 2019

danilovesdallasBlurb:

Dallas Caulfield had a pretty good life until Dani Stewart arrived. She makes him feel things he thought buried and brings about a rivalry with his best friend, Cal Ryder.

Dani is looking for a break from a job where she flies non-stop and Dallas fits the bill nicely. Dani barely has a chance to have any fun when Cal, a one-night stand, gets in the way.

Cal never got over his fascination with Dani. So he agrees to share her with Dallas. As the lovers delve deeper, secrets arise. Cal is willing to risk everything to acquire the woman he loves. There’s only one problem, Dani loves Dallas.

Excerpt:

The next morning Cal left in a rush for Vegas, leaving Dani and Dallas alone. Dallas asked her if she’d like to visit a local winery.

“That sounds romantic,” she said quietly, before pecking him on the cheek to go change.

“We usually have Grapefest every fall, so hopefully our tour will be relaxed.” He started the conversation as they drove to her first winery.

“Maybe I should come down for the festival sometime?” She faltered asking the question. Dani couldn’t understand why she was nervous. She’d already slept with Dallas, but somehow driving in the car seemed far more intimate than the acts she’d committed with Cal and Dallas.

“I’d like that.” Dani watched as he maneuvered the car effortlessly, she couldn’t help but remember his hands on her hips last night as he drew her back towards him. A moan passed her lips.

“I’d like some of that too,” Dallas tilted his golden head and gave her a devilish smile. “You don’t even know what I’m thinking,” she retorted.

“Last night.”

“Yes,” Dani didn’t deny it. What the three of them shared was so carnal and so special. Her two lovers were so comfortable with each other and so adoring towards her that she wasn’t about to deny her attraction for each of them, even though her heart would only love one. She squirmed uncomfortably in her seat.

“Sorry,” he muttered. She twisted, too startled to form a response. “I shouldn’t have brought it up, not without Cal,” Dallas focused his attention back on the two-lane highway.

“You can certainly bring it up. As a matter of fact, I’d like you to do more.”

“But I thought…”

“Because I was squirming that I might be uncomfortable?” she asked. Dani knew she was playing with fire, but she didn’t really care.

He nodded his agreement. “I am uncomfortable, not because of the subject matter but because I’m damn horny.”

“Are we allowed to do anything about that?”

“Because of Cal?” He nodded again.

“I’m gonna say ‘Hell yeah.’ Cal has no hold over me.” She raised her chin and met his eyes.

“He is rather fond of you, though,” his relaxing voice probed.

“So are you.” Dani wasn’t about to involve Cal in a conversation about what he may or may not want. He hadn’t said shit, and the boy certainly knew better than to tell her what to do. She went from being horny to more than a little irritated that Cal would tell his friend she was off-limits. Cal certainly didn’t give her the same courtesy.

“Did he tell you not to sleep with me?” she asked. She wondered what happened that would make Cal so possessive.

“No.”

“Did he tell you we were a couple?”

“No.”

“Then I think what you and I do is our business, not Cal’s,” she huffed.

Saturday Spotlight -Calla’s Summer Fantasy by Amber Daulton

Calla’s Summer Fantasy

Publisher: Daulton Publishing

Release Date: March 18, 2019

ASIN: B07PQ8X4BY

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance 

Word Count: 13k

Heat Level: 5 Flames

callas-summer-fantasyCalla Lansky needed help at playing the field.

She scheduled two dates for the same night at her favorite seafood restaurant, and she owed her shocked boyfriends an explanation. To her surprise, Nathan Risley and Sam Tomlin handled the awkward situation like pros and happily agreed to her ultimate fantasy: a ménage à trois.

After the hottest night of her life, Calla faced the ultimate decision.

Should she commit to the one man who secretly loved her all along, or keep her options open and indulge in her summer fantasy again and again?

Excerpt (Sexy) 

Calla glanced back down at the bed coverings and kicked away her heels. Only a coward would continue to stall. She turned her back on her lovers, slowly untied the halter straps of her little blue dress, and shimmied her hips. The clingy fabric slid down her body and pooled around her ankles. Wearing nothing but a pair of lacy black panties and a matching bra, she puckered her lips in a flirty pout and glanced behind her.

“Little tease.” Sam clenched one hand at his side, his gaze dropping to her perky ass, and he pumped his cock harder with his other hand.

She grinned, her self-confidence shooting like a rocket into outer space. Tunneling her hands through her hair, she lifted the heavy locks and let it cascade back down in a slow, sensuous fall, swaying at the tip of her ass. Nathan growled as Calla reached for her bra clasp, and she batted her eyelashes at him from over her shoulder. “You wanna do it?” Nathan liked undressing her, Sam enjoyed her strip shows, but Calla didn’t care how she undressed as long as she woke up sore in the morning.

Nathan crossed the blankets in three long strides and grasped her waist with his strong hands. His fingers dug a little hard into her skin as he held her from behind.

Desire shot through her, and she almost melted as he trailed hard little kisses along her shoulder blade. She inadvertently transferred power and control of the situation to him, but she couldn’t find the will or the want to steal it back.

Nathan swiped her hair to one side, feathered his fingertips down her spine, and wrapped his arms around her like two steel bands. Caged against his solid chest, his cock pressed into the small of her back. He turned them both around, keeping her backside flat to his front, so they faced Sam.

Saturday Sexcerpt – Calla’s Summer Fantasy by Amber Daulton

callas-summer-fantasy“…Here are the blurb and a sexy quick peek at Calla’s Summer Fantasy, my latest erotic romance novella from Resplendence Publishing.”~Amber Daulton

Blurb

Calla Lansky needed help at playing the field.

She scheduled two dates for the same night at her favorite seafood restaurant and she owed her shocked boyfriends an explanation. To her surprise, Nathan Risley and Sam Tomlin handled the awkward situation like pros and happily agreed to her ultimate fantasy: a ménage à trois.

After the hottest night of her life, Calla faced the ultimate decision.

Should she commit to the one man who secretly loved her all along or keep her options open and indulge in her summer fantasy again and again?

Excerpt

Calla couldn’t decide which passionate, rock-hard hunk satisfied her body more.

She glanced back down at the bed coverings and kicked away her heels. Only a coward would continue to stall. Calla turned her back on her lovers, slowly untied the halter straps of her little blue dress and shimmied her hips. The clingy fabric slid down her body, pooled around her ankles and left her in nothing but a pair of lacy black panties and a matching bra. A flirty pout puckered her lips as she glanced behind her.

“Little tease.” Sam clenched one hand at his side, his gaze dropped to her perky ass, and he pumped his cock harder with his other hand.

She grinned, her self-confidence shot like a rocket into outer space, and she tunneled her hands through her hair to lift the heavy locks. The nape of her neck tingled and her hair cascaded back down in a slow fall to sway at the tip of her ass. Nathan growled as Calla reached for her bra clasp and she batted her eyelashes at him from over her shoulder. “You wanna do it?” Nathan liked undressing her, Sam enjoyed her strip shows, but Calla didn’t care how she undressed as long as she woke up sore in the morning.

Nathan crossed the blankets in three long strides and grasped her waist with his strong hands. His fingers dug a little hard into her skin. Desire shot through her and she almost melted as he trailed hard little kisses along her shoulder blade. She inadvertently transferred power and control of the situation to him but she couldn’t find the will or the want to steal it back. Nathan swiped her hair to one side, feathered his fingertips down her spine and wrapped his arms around her like two steel bands. Caged against his solid chest, his cock pressed into the small of her back and she felt scorched by his possessive hold.

He turned her around so they faced Sam. The photographer’s lustful gaze burned like hot coals over her body. Nathan cupped her breasts, tweaked her nipples through the lace and snapped the clasp of her bra free. The scrap of fabric fell down her arms. A light breeze hardened her achy nipples into stiff peaks. Her body hummed with awareness. Calla closed her eyes as Nathan massaged her breasts with a soft but firm grip.

Join me next Thursday when we meet romance author Trvann Rogers.  ~Tina

AuThursday – Julia Barrett

Please welcome fellow Resplendence Author Julia Barrett.

Hi Tina, thanks for having me.

Q:  So Julia, when and why did you begin writing?

I’ve been writing stories and poems since I was a kid.  I actually began as a poet, but took a practical break – to make money and help support my family, I’m a registered nurse – I began writing again fulltime in 2007.

Q:  Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

My biggest challenge is the need for down time after I finish a work.  If the story and the edits are intense, sometimes I need a month or two before I can really concentrate on my next project.

Q:  What inspired you to write latest book?

My most recent published work is a ménage and I wrote it after a great deal of encouragement by my friends and my publisher. 

My newest submission is a contemporary romantic comedy that was inspired by my real life canoe trip from hell in the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota!  We got lost – no food for over 48 hours, crazy guide.  Yup…a nightmare.  I’m waiting to hear.

Q:  How did you come up with the title?

The ménage was easy, it’s a play on words.  Since it involves one woman and three men, I titled it One Four All. 

If my contemporary is published, the title will be – Pushing Her Boundaries.

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

Choosing is very tough.  I love so many writers.  I suppose if I was lucky enough to have a mentor, I’d like it to be Guy Gavriel Kay.  He writes some of the most beautiful prose I’ve ever read.

Q:  Do you have any advice for other writers?

I’m awful about giving advice.  I figure everyone has to find his or her own way.  But I guess the only advice I can offer is this – don’t overuse the adjectives and adverbs and write what you know.  Readers can always tell when you’re faking the emotions.

Q:  Which one of your covers is your favorite and why?

Anytime Darlin'I think the cover for Anytime Darlin’ is my favorite and that may be because it’s the first romance I wrote – but the cover is just so dang sexy and it captures the characters perfectly.

Q:  Where can readers find you on the World Wide Web?

 My website is:  http://juliarachelbarrett.net or readers can email me at Julia@JuliaRachelBarrett.net

Join me on Saturday when we read an excerpt from Julia’s story “Pushing her Boundaries”
