RELEASE DAY! And $25 GC Winner Announced!

Today is the release day of The Dom with a Safeword!!!!

I'm soooo excited and I really really hope some of you are too! If you haven't been reading along and you'd like to know more about the book, here's the blurb and a few quotes from early readers.

Late at night, on an amateur ghost hunt, Sabrina and her best friend Q are caught trespassing by the gorgeous, blond Jude. The embers of attraction between them sizzle when they discover Jude’s kinks match their own. Jude is a Dom on his last summer of freedom before starting the prison sentence that is med school. Q is a badass bi switch who knows what she wants, and for years it's been her cute, doe-eyed straight friend Sabrina. But the only way to get into Sabrina’s heart and panties may be with Jude’s fist wrapped in her hair.

Domming the bratty Q and mischievous Sabrina isn’t going to be easy, but Jude relishes the challenge. At the end of the summer, will they find a way to stay together when everything is tearing them apart?

Warning: this book contains adult material including the use of multiple implements to bring bratty subs to their knees, scaffolding doubling as bondage apparatus, and a haunted house. No ghosts were harmed in the making of this book.

BDSM elements, M/f/f, f/f

"Sabrina's energy leaps off the pages. Q has dark edges but the protector instinct and vulnerability endears you to her. As with Cari's other Doms, Jude is confident without being an overbearing arse. I like that he is in control but isn't perfect." - author Bianca Sarble.

"The sex and BDSM elements were hot. And the characters were fun and quirky." - author Casea Major.

Here's a little excerpt:

 In the midst of the evil looking displays, Sabrina resembled a virgin sacrifice. The little white sundress and shiny pink lip gloss marked her as prey. She had even tied her shoulder-length blonde hair back with a big white ribbon. It was Sabrina’s idea of a joke, dressing like this to go to some of the edgier stores in town. Although she’d meant for it to be ironic, it was keeping Q in a constant state of distraction. Visions of Sabrina bound and helpless flashed like an old film in her head.

Q avoided looking at her – it was making her mouth water. From the twinkle in her eyes Q could see it was the reaction Sabrina had been hoping for.

She was so damned confusing. Sabrina swore she was straight, but she was such a tease. She obviously liked Q’s attention, but rejected her on an intellectual level. However, physically she was starting to give Q mixed messages. It gave her reason to hope.

At that very moment Sabrina was leaning over a glass jewelry display, the hem of her little sundress barely covering the bottom of her ass. She gave Q a sassy smile over her shoulder and turned back to shopping.

The big tattooed store attendant cast an admiring glance over Sabrina’s shapely legs and nodded at Q, giving her the thumbs-up. “Yours, Q?”

“I wish, Cross,” she muttered back.

The Dom with a Safeword is available at...

And now for the announcement of the Halloween Event winner of a $25 gift card to Amazon/B&N!


Congratulations! I will be in touch soon!

SSS - Halloween Style!

The Dom with a Safeword releases in 3 days!!!

And in true Halloween spirit, I have a ghostly SSS today! Sabrina is an amateur ghost hunter and runs into a spirit late at night and gets the scare of a lifetime. But what's good about being a little afraid is cuddling with a buff, hot guy to feel better ;)
Wails of pain bounced off the walls. Stumbling back, she put her arms out behind her, searching for the wall to steady her. Finally, she found the hard surface. She pushed her back up against it, dragging air into her lungs in big mouthfuls.

The wall moved. It fell away behind her, gravity taking her with it. She tumbled backward into a small tunnel, a yelp her last noise before the wall swung shut in front of her.

Remember to pick up you copy of The Dom with a Safeword on HALLOWEEN!!!

Halloween Event Guest Author Cari Silverwood!!!

Today I have the wonderful, talented, slightly annoying (she's my co-author, I can say that) Cari Silverwood here to talk about Halloween in Australian and her newest project!!!

What’s your favorite Halloween memory? 

In Australia, we don’t have Halloween, so my only memories of Halloween come from watching American movies. Of those, the horror ones would have to take pride of place. But I’m not a real horror movie follower so the most recent horrifying type movie would be the spoofs like the Scary Movie series. Those I have seen several times due to my husband being a love with poor taste slapstick spoofs. Though if you torture me enough, I’ll admit I find the better ones hilarious too.

What’s your favorite Halloween candy? 

We call ‘candy’ sweets or confectionary or most commonly, lollies, here in Australia. I’m not sure what a Halloween candy is, exactly. But in general, I like chocolate, so anything with chocolate on the outside will keep me happy. Chocs with caramels, chocs with toffee…except for strawberry insides. Yuck, yuck yuck. Or come to think of it, also yuck to lime, or orange, or any of those other colorful insides. I eat anything chocolate coated, as long as the anything is toffee or caramel.

What’s your ideal Halloween costume? Like, if you could be anything for Halloween, what would you be? 

Okay, imagination mode switched on as we don’t have such costumes…a feral rabbit with big shiny metal fangs. That way until I open my mouth , you’ll think I’m just cute and fluffy. I like surprises. If you wanted me to say witch or devil or zombie, bad luck. Though I did play Death, in a play once upon a time – the guy with the black hooded clothes, skeleton hands, skull face and scythe. Now that was fun.

If you have kids, do you sneak candy from their bags when they’re sleeping? Be honest! 

Nope. You Americans let kids take candy to bed? Being a tropical climate here, we get a lot of bugs. Do that here, let your kids take candy to bed, and you’d get up in the morning , go to check on them, and find they’d been eaten by some of our piranha ants. Nasty. Only bones would be left. And no candy either. The damn ants have a sweet tooth. I swear I’m telling the truth.

Does your book have a Halloween theme? 

No, but The Dom with a Safeword does have a ghost. Her name is Grace. Though scary, she’s mostly harmless. Or that’s what Sabrina keeps telling us authors. Yes, we talk to our people from the book. She also told me to tell you that. Tell us about your book/series. The Dom with a Safeword is a BDSM erotic ménage romance. I dare you to say that fast six times in a row. The ménage is Mff so it’s one guy, Jude, who is the Dom, and two girls. Q is a bisexual switch who’s been in love for many many years with Sabrina, the ‘straight’ submissive. Sabrina is new to BDSM and girl on girl. Writing a book with so many legs and arms and lips and toes and fingers involved in the sex scenes was a challenge at times, but at least none of our people have a foot fetish. We’re hoping to make this a series eventually. There aren’t a lot of Mff ménage stories out there and yet there are definitely readers looking for these romances.

Now for a sexy excerpt:


A few minutes after, Sabrina was also secured, naked, and standing with her hands tied above her. From the bags he took out her costume and the broad leather belt, then he collected the crop and a few other things, and walked back with his attention completely on her. “I feel like dressing you up.”

“Is it pretty, Sir?” She wrapped her hands in the rope, and raised a skeptical eyebrow.

When he shook out the little black lace skirt and let the bra dangle she barely caught her frown before it spread.

Sabrina sighed. “Sir. I have a thing about only wearing what suits my complexion. And that’s like slutty vampire slut gear. I’m really not feeling all that undead today.”

He swallowed the laughter, let the ball gag uncurl from his hand. “Whatever made me think I’d need this?”



Though she ducked away as far as the rope would let her he caught her and popped in the gag. The little skirt when he wriggled it up her legs sat on her midriff with the skirt so short it revealed her ass. But he loved it. The matching see-through bra was strapless and he did up the clasp then made sure her breasts sat with her nipples framed in the openings. He kissed each, once.

“Beautiful. Watch while I do things to Q. But, come to think of it…now I have you all tied up…” 

Like he had before, he played with her breasts and her pussy, even put his mouth to each nipple and sucked a while. When he had her screwing her toes into the floor, he stopped. “There. Now you know how you make Q feel, most days. Such a tease.”

He circled her, cruised his palm over her ass. “I can’t pass this up. If I put one hand here…” He cupped her pussy with the heel of his hand on her clit. This would do it for her. He spanked her hard, six times on one cheek, then ten on the other.

Her muffled groans came out past the gag. He started spanking her again, alternating ass cheeks, and kept going until she pressed herself rhythmically onto his hand. “There you go, pet. Now you’re extra hot.”

That made her growl indignantly.

He grinned. “You can learn how to wait patiently. Waiting builds character.”

Mmmm.... One of my favorite parts!

Here's more about Cari:

Cari Silverwood writes the way the world should be - dangerous and sexy with bullets piercing the darkness and lovers wrenched close by ropes. When you need escape, when you need that rough lover to bring you to your knees, here you will find stories to singe your fingers. The taste of adventure, the tang of BDSM, the burn of fantasy run wild. Brace yourselves, if you dare to read. this real world, she has a lovely family in Australia, with the prerequisite teenager who dwells in the dark bedroom catacombs…a husband who raises eyebrows when he catches glimpses of what she writes, and a furry menagerie of other animals barking, meowing, and swimming about the place.

Wicked After Dark Blog Hop and Giveaway!!!

Welcome to the Paranormal G-spot, fellow wicked book lovers!

I'm thrilled to be a part of this blog hop and I have a special treat for you. I'm sending you all on a little trip. You want to get to know some of my wicked characters, right? What better way than to speak to them yourselves? So just sit back and pretend you've been pushed through the portal to the Underworld where you'll meet the sexy demon from Destiny Bewitched, Geo. Good luck!


What I first noticed when I stepped – no, make that when Leia pushed me – through the portal to the was the hot muggy air so thick it seemed to stick to the roof of my mouth.

“Should’ve worn a tank top,” I said to no one in particular.

A little shiver crept through me as I took a look around. I was surrounded by tree trunks as thick as my house.

Movement on the ground caught my eye. “Ah!” I yelped when some kind of red-eyed mutant rat scurried across the dead grass. Above me, leaves rustled. I dared a glance at the canopy of green.

A big, black shape stood out against the sage flora. Winged but almost featherless, with a long neck and sharp beak, it sat utterly still on a branch.

Then it swiveled its hairless head and stared at me, an unsettling look in its eye – the same look I give a Hershey bar when I’ve been dieting.

The bird let out a horrible screech then jumped from the tree, soaring straight for me.


A sword swiped through the air only a few feet away and the bird flopped to the ground. My heart was pounding in my chest so hard I was surprised you couldn’t see its outline under my shirt. The wielder of the sword faced away as he wiped the black blood off the steel.

I took my time looking him over. Brown leather pants hugged a firm, bitable ass. His back was bare so I watched his muscle flex as he slid the giant sword into its sheath. It reminded me of what other things he might have that were…giant. Heat crept to my cheeks at the unexpected thought.

He turned around to reveal a set of washboard abs that glistened under a thin layer of sweat. His skin was smooth and tan. Did he always work shirtless outdoors? Someone like that might make me rethink my hatred for gardening.

His jaw was set firm and proud though a small smile played at the edge of his lips. Warm copper eyes stared back at me, twinkling with amusement. Probably, because I’m gawking and panting at him like a love-sick puppy!

I cleared my throat. “Um.” My voice seemed to get stuck somewhere between my brain and my mouth. “Thank you for saving me,” I finally choked out. I stuck out my hand to shake his.

“I'm Geo,” he answered in a sexy rumble. He shook my hand. “What are you doing so far from home, little one?”

I batted my eyes and grinned, surprised I managed to hold back a giggle at his pet name.  “I actually came all this way just to see you.”

His brow furrowed. “Me?”

I nodded. “I was hoping you’d tell me a little bit about…” My cheeks burned. Damn Leia for making me do this. Was she so lazy she couldn’t write the post herself? “About your, uh, sex life.”

A grin stretched across his handsome face. “I see.” He stepped forward.

I stepped back.

A lion in a man’s body was the only way I could describe the presence of this man. Caged lust. Confidence. Knowledge but with a gentle patience. And those horns…smooth, russet-colored horns curved back from his head, curly brown hair tumbling over them. Who knew horns could be so sexy?

“Follow me” he said, eyeing the trees around us. “It’s not wise to stay in one place in the Underworld.”

I gulped then rushed to his side. It was hard to keep pace with his long strides.

“So, can you tell me a little about yourself?” I asked.

“Well, I’m a demon, as you can see from the horns.” He rubbed his hand across one though he didn’t seem pleased about it. “For now,” he muttered under his breath. “I live here in the Underworld and keep to myself until I can return home.”

“Is it true demons can control people’s minds?” I asked.

He stopped walking and turned to face me. His lips quirked. “Kneel.”

Immediately, my legs gave way and I slumped to the ground. Panicked, I tried to rise but my body wouldn’t cooperate. It was like everything locked down, and I could only wait for his next command.

“Look at me.” His voice slid through me like a warm breath.

Slowly, I lifted my head until my gaze found his. I swear I stopped breathing.

He took three steps then stood inches in front of me. I felt so vulnerable, stuck on my knees while he was so tall and strong, staring down at me. Vulnerable, but damn, it was sexy as hell.

“Open your mouth,” the voice commanded.

I was helpless to resist. My heart fluttered. Is he about to do what I think he is?

He stuck the tip of his thumb between my teeth then ordered, “Suck.”

My god, I’d never done something so sensual in all my life. My lips closed around his thumb and I sucked, imaging it was…another part of his anatomy.


I did and he removed his thumb then stepped way.

“Does that answer your question?” he asked with twinkling eyes.

I answered, breathlessly. “Yes.”

He nodded. “Good.” Then he turned and started walking again.

It took me a moment to realize I was still on my knees. But I had full control of my body again. I scrambled up then jogged to his side.

Feeling the need to bring up a lighter topic, I asked one of my favorite questions. “Boxers or briefs?”

He arched a brow and the corner of his mouth twitched. “Neither.”

I was sure my eyes about popped out of my head.

Geo cleared his throat and my gaze jumped to his face. Had I just been staring at his package? I gave 
my head a shake. “Um, chocolate or vanilla?”


Bet he could cook. My heart thudded in my chest. I’d like to lick something chocolate or vanilla off of him.

“Hard or soft?” I asked.

His eyes narrowed. “What do you think?”


He laughed and I shuddered. Damn, even his laugh was masculine.

“Fast or slow?”

He thought for a moment. “Fast the first round then slow the second. The first time I’d want to get out all my aggression but then…then I’d want to take my time and savor you.” A greedy glitter started in his eyes. “Maybe even torture you.”

I let go of a breath I didn’t realize I was holding. “Any last words about, um, sex? Specifically, rough sex?”

He paused a moment and stared at the ground in thoughtfulness. “For me, rough sex doesn’t equal violence, or even dominance. It’s passion. The intensity of not only the shared lust but the emotion behind it.” He looked up and gave me a smoldering look. “Do you think it’s sexy that a man could be so hot for you that he rips your clothing to shreds just to get at your body quicker?”

Holy Jesus! “Yes.”

He moved in close to me. I could feel his hot breath against my forehead. My stomach plummeted as I waited for his sensual words.

“You know when it gets to that point, don’t you, Francesca? When the woman says, ‘to hell with it, gimme all you got,’ and she doesn’t care if there’s a pointy rock shoving into her back. Or if there’ll be bruises on her arms where he’s holding her down. Or if her lips are raw from the harshness of his stubble. She can’t feel any of that anyway. And if she can, it turns her on.”

It was turning me on right now!

“Because it reminds her of how bad her man wants her.”

Yes, yes, yes! My chest heaved as I stared into his soulful eyes. Kiss me, damn it. My lips puckered.
He leaned in. I held my breath.

“Alright, dove,” he said, abruptly. “It’s been a pleasure.”

What? I shook my head to break the spell. Over so soon?

Geo gestured behind me. I turned and recognized the hazy shape of the portal door. He’d walked me in a circle? Tricky demon.

He took my hand and brought it to his lips. "It was a pleasure to meet you." He placed a warm kiss on my wrist and I almost fainted.

“Safe travels, dear one.” He gave me one last sexy grin then disappeared as I walked through the portal.

A cold feeling crept over me as I returned home. I didn’t like that door one bit. I rubbed my arms and shivered, but I couldn’t seem to wipe a goofy smile off my face. I remembered is warm lips against my arm. Maybe it was just me, but I think he lingered.

Excerpt – 18 and over

His wide eyes told her he’d probably never heard music come from a machine before. She recognized the song. I Put a Spell on You by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Somebody in the Underworld liked 70’s rock. Go figure.

“I love this song.” She placed the tape player on the bed and stood up, feeling a little reckless, a little free. Must be the wine.

The lead singer’s throaty voice and the heavy beat fit the dim room. The song was gritty and raw just like the Underworld. She looked at Geo, laid back in the chair all big and bad, strong and silent. He’d never looked so sexy.

Definitely the wine.

“Dance with me,” she commanded.

His brows lifted.

“Come on.” She grabbed his hand and tugged.

With a smirk, he let her pull him to his feet.

“Just put your hands here and here.” She guided his hands to her hip and shoulder but he yanked out of her grip.

“I know how to dance, woman,” he growled. Then he plopped both hands on her low back, just above her backside, and yanked her up against his body.

She gasped. His arousal pressed hard against her abdomen.

Taking the lead, he moved them to the music, grinding against her in a most indecent way. He bent his head and inhaled her hair then let out a savage groan.

Oh my.

All that caged lust was focused on her. Could she handle a man like Geo? His fingers dug into her exposed skin where he’d slipped them under her waistband – his hands like a fiery brand. She swallowed hard.

When the guitar solo came on he bent her backward and she fell, dropping her head, trusting him to hold her as she arched away, presenting her chest. His growl of approval seemed to vibrate straight to her clit. Roughly, he pulled her up and she slammed into his chest with both hands. He gazed down at her, panting, his eyes dark with lust. Her hands shook until she stilled them on his shoulders.

His fingers moved lower, grasping her bare ass and squeezing. Her knees trembled and threatened to give way. Then he lowered his mouth to her ear. She canted her head to the side, thinking he was going to say something, but instead he bit down on her lobe.


“Be still,” he ordered softly then licked the small sting away.

Oh my Lord, I’ve freed the beast.

His mouth skimmed along her neck, licking, kissing. Goose bumps rose over her skin. He nipped the side of her jaw and she jerked. A shiver shook her. He was so unpredictable – so dangerous. And she’d never been more turned on.

“Did you put a spell on me, little witch?” he rasped in her ear. “Am I yours?”

Mine? God I want to say yes! She could barely find her voice. “Something tells me you’re not the type to belong to anybody.”

He leaned his forehead against hers. “I’m beginning to doubt that.”

What do you think? Is he sexy or what? If you think so too, enter my giveaway below! I'm giving away 3 copies of Destiny Bewitched. It can be read as a stand alone but to get the full experience, I recommend reading the three books before it, Destiny Divided (only 99 cents!), Destiny United (free for Amazon prime members and FREE next Friday-Saturday), and Destiny Unchained (only $2.99, still less than the price of a Starbucks coffee).
