#BeautifulVillains presents: Cinderella And The Wolf Prince by Siren Allen #IRromance

beautifulvillains

October belongs to the villains. All October, I’ll be sharing books that feature amazing villains. You know who I’m talking about – the bad guys/girls/creatures of the night who we love to hate. Or hate to love. Maybe both.

The next villain I’m showing love to is one of my own. She’s an evil step mother, a wicked witch, and the owner of a brothel. Say hello to Katherine Dupont from, Cinderella And The Wolf Prince.

38374-Crying-On-The-Wind

Lady Katherine met and fell in love with Cinderella’s father, soon after Cinderella’s mother passed away. Though Cindi was open to allowing her step mother into her life, her step mother wasn’t open to raising a child who wasn’t her own.

After Cindi’s father died, Katherine began treating Cindi like a servant, forcing her to clean up after Katherine and her two spoiled daughters. Katherine’s hatred for Cinderella runs deep and when Cindi finally finds a shot at true love, Katherine is there to sabotage it. Enjoy this excerpt from Cinderella And The Wolf Prince.

“Dear stepdaughter, it seems you’ve gone and found yourself a new job.”

“What are you talking about?” Cindi stared from Katherine to her daughters. What were they up to now?

“You look surprised?”

“No, I look confused. What’s going on?”

Katherine ignored her question. “I had that same look on my face this morning, when the royal family’s carriage stopped in front of my establishment.”

Oh no. What did Wulf do?

“Usually the royal family members show up at night,” Katherine told her. “Today, they made it their mission to show up early and hunt me down.”

Cinderella chuckled at the word hunt. Lady Katherine was so over-dramatic.

“You find this funny?” Katherine asked her.

“You said they hunted you down. I think that’s a little dramatic.”

Katherine placed her hands on the desk. “I was in the bath when they arrived. One of them, forced himself into my establishment and ignored my ladies when they told him to wait for me in my upstairs office. He demanded they tell him where I was. When they did, he stalked me down. If it wasn’t for the shower curtain over my tub, he would’ve seen all of my glory.”

He wouldn’t have been the first. Even so, that didn’t make what he did right.

“I’m sorry Katherine.”

“I don’t want your apology. I want an explanation.”

“I don’t know what made him do that.”

“How do you know which royal did it?”

Busted. “I don’t.”

“You do. Stop lying. There’s too much lying going on around here. Did you know that this royal, showed up here a couple of nights ago and bedded not one, but two of my ladies?”

Actually, just one. “No, I didn’t. Well, yes, I knew he bedded one of them.”

“And how do you know this?”

“Because apparently the lady he bedded went missing and he’s looking for her. He hired me to help him find her.”

“How will you help him when you work full time here?”

“I told him I would help him on my days off.”

“And how did he take that?”

Cindi shrugged. “He agreed.”

“He lied. He showed up here, bright and early, to let me know that you would no longer be working for me.”

Broomsticks. “Katherine, I swear that was not my agreement with him.”

“He’s not one to be reasoned with. Do you know who he is? Who he really is?”

“I do.”

“I didn’t. Not at first. I hate being surprised. It gives me wrinkles. And all the potions in the world don’t permanently get rid of wrinkles.”

***I hope you enjoyed this peek into Katherine and Cindi’s relationship.***

THE PRINCE
Wulf St. Jamison is a cursed prince who’s finally found his princess. Or, at least, he thought he had. After spending one night in his masked female’s arms, he awakes to find her missing from his bed and from his life. No one seems to know who she is or where she came from. Was she real or just a creature his broken mind conjured up?

HIS PRINCESS
Cinderella Dupont only has two more months of servitude before she’s free to claim her inheritance and leave her hateful stepfamily behind. After playing the role of obedient daughter for so long, she craves one night of pleasure. She finds that in the arms of a handsome stranger, only to find out later that he’s the prince.

When he shows up at her door, she assumes he’s figured out that she’s the female behind the mask. That’s not the case. He’s there to hire her, the most powerful tracker witch in the land, to help him find his mate.

THE HUNT
Unable to say no to the prince, she pretends to help him search for the female he claims he’s unable to let go. Working by his side, day after day, she finds herself falling for him and toying with the idea of telling him who she really is.

As dark forces descend upon them, will he forgive her for her deception? Or will her stepmother’s vile declarations turn him against her forever?

Especially since everything her stepmother says about her is true.

A Peek Into ‘Claimed By The Succubus’ #NewRelease #SciFi #IRromance


Sometimes the road to happily ever after is bumpy with lots of twists and turns. This month, I’m highlighting all the struggles couples face in Romanceland. Today, I am happy to share a dark moment from my new release, Claimed By The Succubus. It is available today on Amazon. In this excerpt, our heroine has just learned that our hero is not the man she thought he was. Enjoy!

~The Half-Breed~
She is Izeria’Ahzul, the long-lost daughter of my king. She was raised away from our people and knows nothing of her heritage. Our kind are a myth to her. She doesn’t believe we exist and there’s no way she’ll believe she’s one of us.

~The Beast~
I am Shun’Uhl, the soldier ordered to return her to my king’s side so she can marry a royal and produce an heir to save our people. To get her to trust me, I shed my beastly form and took on the form of someone she knows. I chose unwisely. The form I’ve selected is a male she despises.

~The Forbidden~
The more time I spend with her, the more she comes to like me. And though I’ve tried to resist, I find myself falling for her also. Her feelings for me will change once she learns of my deception and sees how I really look. Part of me wants to complete my mission and return her to her father. Another part of me wants to remain in this form forever and spend my life with Izeria.
I have a choice to make: be honest with the woman I love and risk losing her, or lie to her for the rest of our lives. Unfortunately, the choice is made for me when we come under attack and I have to release my beast to protect her.
Now it is she who has to make a choice: Me and my beast or a kingdom?

“Who are you?”

He takes a deep breath. “I am Shun’Uhl, the king’s first soldier.”

“First soldier?”

“His most trusted friend, his right hand, the king’s weapon.”

“So, you’re a weapon?”

“When I need to be.”

Pieces of this weird puzzle is falling together. Jacob wouldn’t own a warship. Jacob wouldn’t fight gray creatures nor would he teach me how to fight like a warrior. All of those red flags that I ignored. I’m such a fool.

“And this dragon king of yours has ordered you to come and get me?”

“Yes.”

“Because I’m the only one who can save his world?” I repeat the lies he’s been spewing to me for the last two hours while his brother and Blue monitored my vitals and drew blood from me.

“Yes.”

“You all have yet to tell me what I have to do to save this world.”

There’s a tick in his jaw. It must be something he knows I’m not going to like.

“Tell me.”

“Our king needs allies.”

“Okay.” I shrug my shoulders. “And what does that have to do with me?”

“He will explain it to you when you arrive.”

“Or, you can tell me now.”

“I’d… rather not.”

“You owe me this truth. Especially after all the lies you’ve fed me.”

There’s that tick again.

“I didn’t want to lie to you…”

“Really? I don’t believe you.”

“Princess…”

“You had plenty of chances to tell me the truth. Like, when you first took me from my homeworld.” I’m yelling now. I can’t help it. “Or when I helped you escape from that outpost. Or when we were first attacked by those rebels. Or maybe when you were fucking me senseless.” Tears pour down my cheeks. Moshika wipes them away. I’d almost forgotten she was there.

“Izeria, I promise I never meant to hurt you.”

“And yet you have. Just tell me how am I supposed to help save your world. Please.”

He nods. “The king needs allies.”

“You’ve said that.”

“He has no other sons and daughters, only you.”

“I’m not his daughter, but continue.”

“An alliance requires the bonding of two families.”

I don’t think I like where this is going. “Okay, and?”

“The king is going to marry you off to form an alliance.”

“But…”

I don’t know what to say. This is barbaric. No one gets married to form an alliance any more. Females and males marry for love. They marry when they find mates. They marry because they choose to.

I refused to be forced into marriage. Especially to someone I don’t know, someone who doesn’t love me or respect me. I can guess who it is this king intends on marrying me off to. Not happening.

“I don’t want to marry you,” I tell him.

His jaw tightens. I can tell my words has angered him.

“Good, because I’m not the one he’s marrying you off to.”

My mouth falls open. He’s not the one. Who the hell do they expect me to marry? The tears I’ve been trying to hold in spring to my eyes.

“You mean you knew your king was going to marry me off to someone else this whole time?”

Claimed By The Succubus is available on Amazon and FREE with Kindle Unlimited. This weekend it is only 0.99 cents. Price changes Monday.

When we arrive in her room, I place her on the bed. I stand in front of her while she takes her medicine and washes it down with a swig of soda. I can tell it’s her first time experiencing the beverage from the look of awe and delight on her face. She places the cup on the nightstand next to her before staring up at me.

“There are bubbles tingling on my tongue.” She sticks her tongue out to show me.

I shove my hands into my pockets. I will not touch her. “What made you sick?”

“I ate too much. I mean, like way too much.”

“I figured.”

“It was all so good. I couldn’t resist.”

“Moderation is key.”

“I know. I’m never eating again.”

“I say I’m never going to drink again every time I have a hangover. As soon as the hangover is over, I’m back to drinking.”

“Do you do that a lot, drink spirits?”

“No. Only when celebrating.”

“Good. I’ve seen alcoholics. Drinking too much can ruin your life and your body.”

“I agree.”

Silence fills the room. I’m okay with just standing here, staring down at her. I force myself to back away. “I’ll leave so you can clean up and get some rest.”

She nods. I hesitate briefly before turning to leave the room.

“Jacob?”

I stop and glance over my shoulder at her.

She pushes her hair behind her ear before speaking. “Thank you, for helping me.”

Guilt creeps over me like a chill in the air. I’m not who she thinks I am and I’m definitely not helping her. I don’t deserve a thank you. “You’re welcome.”

“And thank you for not laughing at me or yelling at me for being stupid.”

“You’re not stupid and I would never yell at you. You’re on an adventure. You’re supposed to make mistakes. We learn from them and then move on.”

She chuckles. “I have learned my lesson, trust me. Thanks again for being there for me.”

“I’ll always be there for you.” Why did I say that? I won’t always be there. Soon, she’ll be married off to a royal she’s never met. I won’t have further contact with her. She smiles but says nothing. I need to get out of here, away from her, to clear my head. “Get some rest,” I tell her and leave the room. Shutting the door behind me, I lean against it and stare up at the ceiling.

“You’re failing at keeping your distance from the princess,” Blue tells me.

I’m thankful that Blue can speak to me on the hall speakers and not be heard by Izeria on the speakers in her bedroom. Still, I don’t know much about her kind. Her hearing could be just as good as mine.

“We have a guest, Blue. You have to talk to me through my ear piece.” I push away from the door and walk back toward the flight deck. When Blue speaks again, he uses my ear piece to voice his opinion. He always has an opinion.

“There was an extreme increase in heat coming from you when you were holding the princess.”

“I’m hot natured. It’s in my genes.”

“Did you have to hold her so closely to your body, captain?”

No. “Would you rather I’d left her to be sick alone?”

“No.”

“Okay then.”

“This will end badly. Captain, you are being dishonest with her. You are not who she thinks you are. You look like someone she knows, that is why she is being familiar with you. When she learns of your deceit, she will feel betrayed. If you allow her to care for you on an intimate level, she will feel worse than betrayed.”

“What feeling is worse than betrayal?”

“She’ll feel destroyed.”

Destroyed? Yeah, that does sound worse. When I reach the flight deck, I fall into my seat and stare out the port hole. I know what Blue’s saying is true. If Izeria comes to care for me, she will feel destroyed when she finds out that I’m not helping her, instead, I’m kidnapping her. I have no choice. The king has ordered this. I have to obey.

“Should I ignore her the rest of the voyage?” I say aloud.

“You should keep a friendly distance.”

A friendly distance?

Speak to her only when I have to. Don’t allow my beast to sniff her or be too close to her. Avoid sharing meals with her.

A friendly distance. I can do that. I will do that. Time to return my focus to the mission and away from the female resting a few doors away from me.

“Blue, when was the last time you did a perimeter scan?”

“Ten minutes ago. Would you like for me to pull up the report?”

“Yes.”

Leaning back in my chair, I stare at the screen in front of me, waiting for the perimeter scan to come up. When it does, I lean forward and watch the slide show. The perimeter is clear. There are no threats lurking in the shadows.

“We are all clear,” Blue reports. “There are no cloaked ships hiding in the shadows.”

“Good. ETA?”

“We are on solar day one of our forty solar days’ journey.”

On schedule. Forty solar days. Ten weeks. Two and a half months. It will feel like forever alone on this ship with Izeria. It will take all my willpower to keep my beast in check, hell, to keep myself in check for that long.

I try to resist asking… I can’t. “Update on Izeria. Is she okay?” I ask my ship’s AI, who acts more like a father than a computer.

“You were just with her, captain. You saw for yourself that she is recovering nicely from her upset stomach. This inquiry makes me believe you are going to have a hard time keeping a friendly distance.”

“I just want to make sure she’s comfortable. She’s the king’s daughter. I have to be hospitable.”

“True, captain. Our princess is well. She has taken advantage of the sanitation mist and is now resting in bed.”

“Is she asleep?”

“No, captain, she does not slumber yet.”

I place my elbows on the console and stare out into space. I wonder what she’s doing right now. She needs to feel better soon. I don’t like her being sick. It makes me uneasy. If Blue says she’s fine, she’s fine. I imagine her all alone in her large bed. Mine is larger. She’d be more comfortable there. I can already imagine her there, her wild hair fanned out on my pillow.

“Are you okay, captain? Your heart rate has increased.”

Clearing my throat, I say, “I’m fine, Blue.”

I will not go to her.
I will not go to her.
I close my eyes and take a deep breath.
I will not go to her.
My inner beast laughs. He knows the truth. There’s no way we’re going to be able to keep our distance.
We don’t want to.

Nowhere To Run by M’Renee Allen #InLust #Suspense #Erotic

The Madly In Lust Blog Event continues with a steamy scene from Nowhere To Run, by M’Renee Allen. Be warned, there’s a whole lot of steaminess ahead. Enjoy and be sure to enter the Madly In Lust giveaway!

“I need to touch you,” he told her, reaching for her.

Melanie stepped back under the hot spray of the water and let it wash the rest of the suds away. Soap free, she turned the shower off then moved closer to him. “I want you to touch me.”

He reached for her.

She took a step back. “Tongue only,” she told him.

His gaze became heated as he dropped to his knees in front of her. He gripped her hips and pushed her back until she was pressed against the shower wall. He lifted her leg and placed it over his shoulder.

Gripping his hair for balance, Melanie closed her eyes as his lips wrapped around her clit. Flames of desire leapt over her skin. His tongued twirled around her clit, making delicious circles around her tiny bud. She moaned his name when he ground his mouth against her.

She gripped his head and held him there as she lifted her hips and fu**ed his face. His hands slipped from her hips and curved around her ass, pulling her closer to his mouth. Up and down she lifted her hips as he licked her.

“So sweet,” he whispered against her before sliding his tongue between her wet folds.

She could feel her orgasm approaching. Moving her hips faster she chased it down, wanting to come in his mouth the same way he’d came in hers. Her thighs shook, hips jerked, knees grew weak.

She was close, so close.

How did a text message lead to blood on her hands?

Melanie Pittman never should’ve responded to the message her boss sent, demanding she join the festivities at his mansion. With her job on the line, she showed up, only to flee moments later, covered in her boss’s blood.
And his son had watched her flee.

She’d known his willingness to not turn her in was too good to be true. Now he’s blackmailing her: sex for silence. The only thing making this situation worse was the fact that she enjoyed the things he did to her. The way he handled her body, the dirty things he said to her, she loved it all, even though she knew he would never think of her as anything other than a toy he could play with, manipulate. He held her freedom in his hands.

And now his older, more ruthless brother knows what she’s done.

What will it take to keep him silent?

New Year’s Resolutions with Bailey from Christmas Confusion. #Romantic #Comedy #KU #Chicklit

GirlTalkSaturday

Welcome to another Girl Talk Saturday. Today I have with me Bailey Cooper from Christmas Confusion. She’s going to share with you her New Year’s Resolutions.

ccteasers

Bailey: Last year was such a busy year for me. I moved into my first apartment, alone. It was kinda scary at first. But having Max living across the hall from me made me feel safer. I also graduated college and landed my first job…yay me. Another first for me was that I fell in love for the first time. I’ve been pretty busy, but I plan this year to be even busier. So here is my list for 2017.

1 – I want to be a better sister in law to my brother’s wife. I hate the woman, but, she’s part of my family now so I need to at least attempt to be nice to her. No matter how much she irks me.

2 – I love my new job. However, I need to learn how to ignore nasty comments from one co-worker in particular. I hope that Leslie and I can put aside our differences in 2017.

3 – I hope my wedding turns out perfect. Oh and I hope I don’t turn into a bridezilla. I haven’t decided on what colors I want yet or where I want to have the wedding, but, I hope it’s beautiful. With Krista and Greg helping me plan it, I know it is going to be STUNNING.

4 – Squats….I need to get this butt of mine firm and tight before my wedding.

5 – Last but not least….. I DO NOT WANT TO WAIT UNTIL MY WEDDING NIGHT TO HAVE SEX!

I wish I wouldn’t have told Max that I wanted to make it down the aisle a virgin. Now he refuses to touch me until our wedding night. But, that is no longer a wish of mine. I want sex and I want it now. I don’t want to wait. I thought I did. I’ve saved myself for my future husband. I’ve always wanted to get married and wear a white wedding dress. I wanted my first time to be on my wedding night. Now that I’ve kissed Max and felt his hands on me….I don’t want to wait. So my number five resolution is that I plan to seduce Max before the wedding. He’s stubborn. But I’m determined. Now do you see why I’ve been doing squats? Krista says it’s great practice for what’s to come, whatever that means. Let’s hope it works. 🙂

 

~Christmas Confusion is available now.~
~Book Two – Seducing Max will be released later this year. Cover reveal coming soon.~

Christmas Confusion Excerpt

Max scooted back on the couch, he reached toward Bailey, eyes straying to her legs. Even though she wore jeans, he still pictured her legs bare, like they were when she jumped on his counter.

Her eyes widened as his hand came closer and closer. Max leaned forward, stretching his arm even closer to her body, he ached to touch her. His fingertips itched for a chance to slide down her body. As he moved closer, he heard her inhale deeply and he couldn’t escape the erotic images that flowed through his mind. Oh, the sounds I could cause her to make, if she would give me the chance.

Max continued edging forward, until his fingers wrapped around what he was reaching for. He picked the remote control up and moved back to his side of the couch. His hand shook slightly. Bailey exhaled. The sound sent chills over his body. Max pointed the remote at the television and pressed play.

He cleared his throat. “Do you want to start from the beginning or do you want me to find the last scene you watched?”

Max waited on her to answer but all he heard was the sound of her breathing. He kept his eyes straight forward, fearing the sight of her chest rising and falling would be his downfall. She took so long to answer that he forgot what his question was.

“Whatever you want,” she whispered, and his gut clenched. Max pressed pause.

What was his question? For the life of him, he couldn’t remember what he’d asked her. But her answer ‘whatever you want’ was the answer he craved. A thousand questions raced through his head, ‘Bailey, what do you want me to do to you with my tongue?’ Her answer of ‘whatever you want’ would be perfect for that question. ‘Bailey, what do you want me to do to you with my hands?’

Whatever you want would be the perfect answer to that question. But none of those were the question she was answering. What had he asked her?

“Or we could just watch television,” she said. “We don’t have to watch the movie, I know it’s a chick flick and you may not like it.”

Oh yeah, the movie. “No, no, we can watch the movie.” Get it together, Max.

“Okay,” Bailey smiled and snuggled further into the comforter.

His comforter, the one he would sleep under later on tonight. The comforter that would have her sweet scent on it until he decided to wash it, if he decided to wash it.

Get it together, now, Max.

Max cleared his throat again. He felt like his t-shirt was getting tighter, choking him. Max found it hard to swallow. “We can just watch it from the beginning. How long is this movie anyway?” he asked her.

“It’s a short movie, about an hour long.”

He would have an hour in her company, an hour with her sitting within arms-reach of him, an hour of sweet torture and he would enjoy every minute of it.

“Can I have a little cover?” he asked her.

“Sure, here.” Bailey leaned forward pushing some of the comforter his way.

“Thanks,” Max told her, before draping the cover over his legs and pressing play. The first scene of the movie came on. Bailey’s eyes were glued to the television screen. Making good use of his peripheral vision, Max watched her from the corner of his eyes.

He loved watching her smile at the funny scenes and tear up at the sadder ones. Emotion after emotion flitted across her face as she watched the movie. He wondered what kind of emotions he would draw from her if she was underneath him. Would she be as passionate in the bedroom as she was outside of it? Max had a feeling she would be.
