Excerpt
The curtain of hazy snow and steam around
them gave the sense that they were all alone in the world, a veil of cold mist
separating them from everything but one another.
Or maybe the wine was going to her head.
She felt a sweet happiness all over to be with Gabe. It was dangerous, perhaps,
to feel that way. But she’d never been with a man like him, someone strong and
noble, kind and warm hearted.
And so very sexy.
Her eyes dipped to the top of his chest
above the water as he drained his glass and set it aside, his triceps flexing
in a way that made her want to take a bite.
“I certainly didn’t expect a wedding gift.”
He shook his head, a wry smile kicking up one side of his mouth. “We’ll have to
make our own rules for this marriage since the regular conventions aren’t going
to apply.”
“Like tonight, for example.” She hadn’t
meant to say it out loud, but there it was, floating on the cold breeze before
she could take it back. Drawing a steadying breath, she explained herself. “I
don’t need to worry about your expectations because—”
“Because there are none.” He cupped her
shoulders with his hands, a warm weight that anchored her in the swirling
water. “I thought we deserved this time together to get to know each other as
more than friends, but I will be glad just to talk to you tonight. To learn how
to make you happy.”
“I know that.” She wanted to close her eyes
and concentrate on how his hands felt on her. To soak up all the sensations of
being with him. “You never made me feel like you brought me here for more than
that, but still…it’s a wedding night. I can’t deny I’ve been thinking about the
possibilities of what that means.”
His thumbs skated a slow circle over the
tops of her shoulders, a subtle touch that set the rest of her on fire.
“I’ve been doing plenty of thinking of my
own,” he admitted. “But that doesn’t mean we have to act on it.”
If he kept touching her, though, the
possibility of her launching across the hot tub to kiss him was very real.
“When I said I wasn’t all that experienced,
I didn’t mean to suggest I’ve never been with a guy. Of course I have.” Though
she had kept her virginity longer than any of her friends, haunted by her
stepmother’s taunts long after they should have lost their power to hurt her.
“I just don’t feel like I ever got high marks. You know?”
“Sex shouldn’t be a graded assignment.” He
said it with one-hundred-percent seriousness.
But she laughed anyway, because it was a
strange conversation for a wedding night. “Right. I get that.” She flipped a
damp piece of hair out of her eyes as she warmed to the discussion. “But when I
decided to lose my virginity, I think I was probably…too determined. I did some
research and felt well-prepared, but in the end—epic fail.” She shook her head,
remembering the expression on her boyfriend’s face afterward. It hadn’t been
blissful pleasure.
More like being shell-shocked, maybe.
“The thought of you researching to the
point of being over prepared is going to animate some very good dreams for me.”
He never stopped touching her. His thumbs trailed down the satin straps of her
bra in the back. Then in the front. Over and over. “It’s my turn to be
intrigued.”
“I think I was studying techniques that
were too advanced for a beginner.” She shrugged, the water around her splashing
with the movement. “But I don’t like looking foolish, and I’d waited so long to
give sex a try that I put a lot of pressure on myself not to make it obvious
that I was a first-timer.”
“What about afterward?” Gabe’s knee grazed
hers under the water and she didn’t skitter away because it felt too good.
“Didn’t things get better once the first time was out of the way?”
“I wasn’t keen to repeat the experiment at
the time.” She retrieved her wineglass and took another small sip. “But now, I
think maybe I’d like to.”

Book Blitz: Master Me, Please by BJ Wane

Title: Master Me, Please
Series: Miami Masters #2
Author: BJ Wane
Publisher: Blushing Books
Genre: Erotic/BDSM Romance
Release Date: November 10, 2017
Blurb
Krista Matthews thought nothing could be harder than losing her husband
and Master to suicide until the man he’d entrusted her care to left her
also.  By the time Dr. Dax Hayes returned
from an overseas, volunteer medical tour, she thought she was over his
deflection and ready to re-immerse herself in the BDSM world she needed and
missed so much without his help.  One
scene proved how wrong she was and after Master Dax’s timely rescue, she agrees
to let him tutor her back into the lifestyle. 
She hadn’t counted on her growing feelings for the strict Dom or his
refusal to take her over completely, like she craved.
Dr. Dax Hayes fell for Krista Matthews the minute he looked into her
blue eyes and saw the sated, content look she shared with her husband, Dr. Kurt
Matthews.  He managed to keep his
feelings and lust under control until his friend and colleague asked him to
join him in gifting Krista with a menage for her birthday.  Knowing it was a mistake, but unable to
resist, Dax succumbs to the temptation of this one-time scene, never realizing
where it would lead.  A year later, after
sealing his fate with a questionable act, he flees on a guilt trip only to
return and discover nothing had changed-he still wanted Krista Matthews with an
ache that wouldn’t be assuaged by anyone else. 
Unable to resist stepping in when she gets herself in trouble, Dax
again gives in to temptation and aids the one woman he can never have back into
the lifestyle her submissive nature needed. 
When Krista learns the truth, will her feelings be strong enough to
forgive him, or did he gamble everything only to lose it all in the end?
DISCLAIMER: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements
of power exchange, BDSM, including explicit sexual scenes and anal play. If any
of these offend you, please do not purchase this book.

Excerpt
“Why didn’t
you stop?” Dax growled at the other man, each of them positioned at Krista’s
sides and reaching to undo the cuffs.
“I didn’t
hear her,” he snapped in defense, his posture as rigid and unapologetic as his
icy tone.  “She should’ve spoken up
louder.”
Dax snapped
his mouth shut and turned his attention to Krista’s shaken, perspiration damp
body as she collapsed into his arms. 
Regardless of the less than favorable circumstances and his guilt, it
felt damn good to feel the press of her soft, lush curves again.  Lust joined his rage, the two volatile
emotions a bad combination when they revolved around her.  Wrapping one arm around her slender
shoulders, he allowed her to bury her face in his shoulder for now as he
reached for the clothes the Dom handed out. 
“My
apologies.”
Nodding,
Dax watched the man stalk off without a backward glance and gritted his teeth
against the urge to snap at him again. 
His indifference to Krista’s struggles proved what an asinine Dom he
was, but nothing else.  He sure as hell
didn’t intend to call him back to fulfill his duties and take care of his
sub.  That job just landed in his arms,
and he wouldn’t turn away from it this time like he had after Kurt’s death.  Temporarily, for good or bad, she’d just
become his to see to, at least for now.     
“Get
dressed.  We’re leaving.”

Excerpt
No matter how shitty the day, I shed my crankiness as I got
closer to my cottage at the base of Mount Buffalo. Thoughts
of Molly’s Hen’s night and getting my groove on further lifted my
mood so when I turned down my long dirt driveway I was happy.
Inside, I gave my dogs Patsy and Eddie some attention
then rushed into the shower, almost tripping into my clawfoot
bath before putting on
my dress, more mascara and some Chanel Mademoiselle.
With five minutes to spare before I would be end-of-friendship late, I stoked
the fire, fed the hounds and headed out.
The winery was situated on a hill surrounded by grape vines
wearing their autumn coats. The wedding would be held at the renovated
butter factory that now served as the cellar at the winery. It
was made of old red brick with high ceilings and big wooden doors, and was
attached to the farmhouse where Molly lived. As I neared the house, I could
hear our friend Annie’s English accent animatedly recounting something,
and Bruce snorting in response. Walking up the back steps I was met at the
door by a relieved Dave and a near to tears Molly.
“Oh shit,” I muttered as she threw her arms around me. I
leaned down to hug her, resting my head on her blonde curly hair. She was
usually a little ray of sunshine, but not tonight.
“She won’t let me kick her out,” Dave ground out. Clearly
the twig bitch had brought her A-game. Molly shook her head and I
whispered fiercely in her ear, “She ain’t got nothin’ on us.”
And she didn’t.
Molly gave me a small smile in return, but it didn’t reach
her eyes. “It’s fine, I only have a few more weeks to endure
it.” Molly had decided to tolerate Franny, but I wanted to give her a
bloody nose. I released my friend and turned to walk inside, even
thirstier now.  
“I need a fuck,” I started to say before going
smack-bang into a wall of muscle. The wall was tall because I was
staring at a tanned throat and I was no short-ass. I stumbled back before
looking up again. Fuck. I felt slammed into all over again. I’d run into a GQ
model with broad shoulders, a square jaw and short dark hair that was
faultlessly un-coiffed. I eyed his perfectly formed lips (that were turned
down) and beautiful chocolate eyes that were, at this moment, looking at me
from under raised eyebrows. I felt a pull of desire as my eyes moved
south along his body. The irony that I’d just declared I needed a fuck wasn’t
lost on me. Dave cleared his throat to snap me out of my exploration. I
blinked slowly and stepped back. 
“Ah Hannah, this is Howard.” Molly introduced us, and I
could hear amusement in her voice. 
So Howard was not a sixty-year-old banker, I thought,
still dazzled. It was a shame I hadn’t met him sooner.
 After a moment,
Dave made a strangled sound, disrupting my musing. I turned to see him looking
down trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to stifle a laugh. Bugger. I’d spoken out
loud. Now I was flushing red like a sunburnt ginger kid. 
Slowly, I raised my eyes to Howard’s. “Well, Howard,
it’s a pleasure to meet the man I’ll be joining at the end of the
aisle,” I quipped as if I was hilarious. I wasn’t. This was
embarrassing.  
“Hannah.” 
One Word. He didn’t need to say more—my undies
incinerated. 
So deep and melodic, he had a voice that made my mouth go
dry and my girl parts tingle. I hadn’t had sex since my ex, almost two
years ago, and that sad realisation made more blood rush to my cheeks, twice in
two minutes. Shit. I needed to lie down before I fainted. 
Howard stood there looking at me, neither smiling nor
scowling, probably trying to figure out what planet I was from. 
“Well, about that drink, ” I said breaking the awkward
silence abruptly, moving past him into the kitchen to drown myself in a bucket
of wine. 
“I can’t believe you said that out loud,” Molly
stage-whispered as she followed me, closing the door. I was humiliated but at
least Molly was smiling.
“Sorry I sounded like a complete cock. I didn’t embarrass
you too much did I? He didn’t look happy.”
“Oh, he wasn’t unhappy.” Molly smiled
suggestively. 
“What happened? What’d I miss?”Annie rapped out as she
walked in, hands on hips and demanding an answer. Annie, my other
closest friend was also tiny like Molly, but had raven
black hair cropped short and jewel-like eyes now glittering with
anticipation. She was a smart ass. My antics were perfect cannon fodder
for her. 
“Nothing.” I yawned, feigning nonchalance.
“She met him,” Molly said to Annie with a knowing wink.
 I sighed. “Yeah, and I made a complete dick of
myself.” This would’ve been hysterical if I wasn’t the dick.
“Oh, I don’t think he saw it that way,” Molly said
smirking. I huffed, grabbed a drink and went through to the dining
room to get away from my friends making fun of me.

As a girl growing up, Laura was lost in the world of Anne of
Green Gables and Little Women. During high school, volleyball dominated her
life; there had to be something positive about being 6’1” with red hair.
Representing Australia from a young age she eventually took
up a scholarship at the University of Iowa. Living in America and being a
full-time athlete in a college town was an eye-opening experience and lots of
fun (from what she can remember). #gohawkeyes
Returning from the States, her career took a different turn
as she started working at the Red Cross and completed her Masters of Law in
Human Rights. As one of the few non-lawyers in the class, her essays were far
more floral than the rest, something that caused the discerning professors to
shake their heads. Through working and studying, she realised there are other
ways to win hearts and minds.
While she’s spent the last 14 years as an advocate against
poverty and homelessness, the desire to change the world through storytelling
has gotten stronger. She now lives in the Alpine Valley of North East Victoria,
Australia with her husband, daughter, two dogs and seven chooks. When
she’s not doing the whole mum thing, working at a homelessness agency,
renovating her farmhouse or trying to do laundry bleary-eyed at midnight, she
is writing.

Can the sins of the past be forgiven with the actions of
today?

Trish Hogan’s life was destroyed when she gave her trust to her high school
boyfriend, Jackson, and he abused it, changing the course of her life forever.

A decade later she’s living in Manhattan — she has a roommate, a steady
boyfriend and a career. When a hurricane puts the city on lock down, Trish gets
a message she never thought she’d receive: Jackson is dying and alone. In a
city of millions, she is the only person who can sit by his side.

Jackson Davis was once the golden child of a senator who went against his
father’s plans and became a musician. Tatted up and broken, he wakes up in a
hospital only to see Trish — the one person he needs to atone his sins to —
standing before him. He will recover from his injuries, but not from the pain
he caused in the past.

Trapped by the storm, they embark on a night of reckoning that has one running
away to Hawaii and the other following in her steps. As the victim becomes the
villain, the two are forced to face the past, live in the present and find a
way to navigate into the future.

Excerpt
“I want you to get to know me now, as a man.”
I hold a finger up to him. “No.”
“Yes.”
Shaking my head, I state, “You can’t force me to spend time
with you.”
“Yes, I can,” he retorts with a wink. He flicks a gaze around
the room—the fourteen-hundred-square-foot Pele suite with two king-size master
bedrooms, a living room, lanai looking out to the Pacific Ocean, and—
Realization strikes.
“Oh, no.” I put both hands up in the air and start to back
away. “No, no, no, no, no.”
He smiles.
“You’re sick,” I state.
He strides toward me, each step more purposeful than the
last. “Eight days and seven nights of personal concierge service.”
I continue to back up. “You’re insane.”
Sit back and relax at our five-star luxury resort while
your every need is met
,” he recites the words from the hotel’s website.
My heels continue to retreat backward. “I don’t know what
you think this service includes, but it’s not—” My back hits the wall.
“Not what?” His palms are pressed flat against the wall by
my head, his body pinning me in.
I gasp at the proximity.
The buttons of his shirt are level with my eyes. The fire of
the dragon peeks over the top of his collar. His strong legs encase me. The
well-defined upper half of a man who clearly treats his body like a piece of
art paired with the intoxicating smell of warm honey radiating off his skin
trap me. I’m consumed by the power of this man, yet not one single part of his
body is touching me. Not one tiny inch.
I look up and am a breath away from lips whose kisses are
still ones I dream about. I dare myself not to, but I find myself glancing
further up, and my heart stops at the look he’s giving me—the heated one of a
man who is fixated on the one thing he wants. The determined yet yearning gaze
of someone who has been deprived for years. The look of someone who is staring
at what he needs.
My body ignites.
From the tips of my fingers to the swell of my chest and
right down to the simmering of my core, I’m reacting to having this hard,
powerful body so close. It’s so intense, so direly missed—and so very, very
dangerous.
I tilt my head to the side, causing Jax to lean in and
whisper into my ear, his breath hot against my skin, “There once was a time
when you looked at me like I was your savior. Now, your eyes scream in disgust.
Where you once melted, now, you flinch. I did that to you, and it kills me.”
He pushes off the wall and stalks back to the middle of the
room with his chest heaving. I was so concerned about my physical reaction, I
didn’t even notice he had one of his own.
“I’m not the monster you think I am.”
