Quickie

New Cave Release – Jambrea Jo Jones

Ambrose Firth hated high school, so why is he contemplating going to his fifteen-year reunion? One name—Noah Winters. Noah stars in many of Ambrose’s wet dreams, but the man was a jock, and in high school, Ambrose was a geek. Not anymore. But he isn’t dating anyone either. Not wanting to seem desperate, he does what any self-respecting gay man would—he hires an escort.

Noah is everything Ambrose remembered—and then some. With a little push from his “date”, Ambrose determines to decipher the mixed messages Noah’ s been sending all night. Imagine Ambrose’s surprise when Noah can’t keep his hands off him. But Ambrose wants more than just a romp. Noah better hold on for a steamy reunion.


New Cave Release – Chastity Vicks

After a long, dull week, Jenny is more than ready for some sexy fun with her sexy husband. It’s their two-year anniversary and Matt’s bound to have something special for her—but when Jenny unwraps his gift, the real surprises start coming.

Matt presents her with a remote-controlled vibrator…and a challenge. Can she make it through their celebration dinner at a local restaurant, knowing he has the power—and the battery-operated means—to leave her gasping in front of a room full of people?

With Matt in charge of the remote, Jenny learns just how good being completely in his hands can be.


New Cave Release – Cindy Jacks

Just when Lila has resigned herself to the fact the most exciting chapters of her life are over, a blast from the past walks into her bakery. Six feet of gorgeousness named Gavin drops by as she’s closing up shop. They were once high-school sweethearts and it’s been more than twenty-five years since they’ve seen each other, but time hasn’t diminished the sweet heat between them. Soon enough the sparks—and the frosting—begin to fly.

As they rediscover each other’s bodies, it’s clear Gavin’s no longer a boy as he shows Lila the man and skillful lover he’s become. Though Lila knows this whirlwind romp could be an act of insanity, his touch unleashes the sensual woman she’s forgotten she could be. And she thinks—maybe—she has one more leap in her.

Please welcome Tory Richards to my humble online blog home! Tory Richards, come on doooooown!

Nat: Hiya! Lovely to have you here. I’ll dive straight in and get on with the questions.

What do you like best about writing?

Tory: While I enjoy the characters and places I create I have to say the finished product. The editing is done, the book cover has been designed, and it’s release day! Nothing sweeter.

Nat: I know what you mean! Getting covers is my favourite part.

What sets you off on a new book? Do you need visuals or audio to spark a plot?

Tory: Anything can set me off. Sometimes a thought will just pop into my head, and blossom into a story. Other times I might be watching a show on TV and something in it will spark an idea. Something someone tells me might give me an idea.

Nat: Same here.

Do you write via keyboard or pen and paper? Or both?

Tory: LOL…I started out with pen and paper around the age of ten, then graduated to a manual typewriter at thirteen. Since getting my first computer a few short years ago there’s nothing better.

Nat: Gosh, I remember my first typewriter. Noisy old thing.

When writing, we’re interrupted by many things. Of course, this isn’t evident in the tale, but is there a funny moment in your real life that interrupted your writing, one that you’ll always remember when you read your book again, that you’d like to share with your readers? I like to think of my books as memory keepers in a way, where special events rest between the lines that no one but me can see. Do you have the same thing going on?

Tory: None comes to mind right now.

Nat: Maybe I’m just strange then LOL.

If you could visit one place right now, where would you go and why?

Tory: Ireland. I’ve actually planned a trip there twice but had to cancel both times. I’ll make it some day, though. I like to travel and there’s something about Ireland, the castles and history of the place, that seems romantic.

Nat: Ooh, I have friends who live there.

If you could have one thing that would make your writing life easier, what would it be and why?

Tory: More time in the day. As it stands right now I work full time, so I only have a couple hours in the evening and weekends to write.

Nat: I’m with you on time. I’d like another 6 hours.

Do you have any phobias? What are they, and why do you think you have them?

Tory: Gosh, don’t we all have phobias? LOL I’m a germaphobic, or so I’ve been told. Have no idea why.

Nat: I have too many phobias to mention, so I won’t!

Do you have any obsessions? What are they, and why do you think you have them?

Tory: Actually, nothing comes to mind right now.

Nat: If you could look like one star, who would it be?

Tory: Raquel Welsh, I think she’s absolutely beautiful and ageless.

Nat: Oh, I agree. I love her eyes.

If you had the choice of going to a book signing with a star on your arm, who would it be and why?

Tory: Hmmm…let me think about that one for a while.

Nat: LOL! Too many to pick from, hmm?

If you have children and/or you work full time, how do you find the time to write?

Tory: Writing is just a hobby for me so I don’t stress if I don’t have time for it. My family comes first.

Nat: Fave genre, time period?

Tory: The present. If I wrote in another period I’d have to do research, and I hate homework. 🙂

Nat: LOL! If you had one piece of advice for aspiring authors, what would it be?

Tory: Don’t give up, believe in yourself and someone else will, too.

Nat: Ooh! I like that last line. I hadn’t thought of it like that. Well, it was lovely having you here, Tory. Thank you so much for dropping by!

Lilly collapsed against him. God, it was just like old times. And she’d made it so easy for him. Damn it! She wasn’t going to let him break her heart again! But she wasn’t going to dwell over what she couldn’t change either, and besides, she’d thoroughly enjoyed their quickie.

As they straightened their clothes and prepared to leave, he asked, “So, what’s the plan?”

“I take you home with me. You can use Ross’ room until he comes home tomorrow. I hope you like pizza and wine because that’s what I intend to have for dinner.” Hopefully there was an extra bottle of wine stashed in the fridge.

“All I want for now is a shower, a bed, and some more of you.”

Now was a good time to lay down the law. She had let her desire get the best of her once but that had been temporary insanity. She took a deep breath. “Speaking of bed, you’ll be in it alone, Blake. There’ll be no more kissing or touching or anything else between us while you’re here.”

He chuckled. “You weren’t complaining a minute ago.”

She was still flushed from their mutual satisfaction. “I mean it, Blake. You can’t continue to come back into my life every few months or a year, turn it upside down and then just leave again. I didn’t want to pick you up, I didn’t want to see you again, and I have a boyfriend.” She was amazed at how easily the lies slipped from her lips. Almost as easily as her mouth had devoured his cock a moment ago.

“Relax, baby, I won’t do anything you don’t want me to do.”

Lilly had her doubts. She’d never been able to resist him. Blake had the moves and he’d never been afraid to put them on her before. Even a glance could turn her knees to jelly. And she was weak where he was concerned. He knew that, she was sure.

She focused on the road the rest of the way home, and tried not to imagine a naked, sexy Blake in her shower.

Debut Day!

Today is my debut with Ellora’s Cave (too exciting!) and I’m typing this with a hair dye on my head. Oh yes, I could have done a number of more exotic things to celebrate, but to be honest, when I woke I got a case of the jitters. I’m a multi-published author in other pen names, but this name is special to me because, well, she just is. Also, being with Ellora’s was a long-time dream of mine, and to know my first book is out today is a little overwhelming. Okay, I’ll admit I cried this morning, then took myself off to a friend’s house to take my mind off the release.

So, my daughter just said, “Why’s your hair going purple?”

Purple? It’s meant to be burgundy. I looked in the mirror, and sure enough it looks a tad purple. No matter. So long as it covers the grey streak I don’t care. What’s a bit of purple among friends? And that grey streak down my parting had become so unsightly… I read the instructions to see how long I needed to keep the dye on for. It said: If they grey is abundant…

Cheeky buggers! How did they know? And yes, it’s abundant all right. And the dye is burning my head. I can only hope my hair doesn’t fall out. Now wouldn’t that be something to remember this day by?

“How did your release day go, Nat?”

“Great! I went bald!”

If you buy Soul Keeper, I really hope you enjoy it. Two more of my books are coming soon—Magenta Starling (novella) and His Beautiful Wench (novel). My editor is looking at a new novella, Come Find Me, and I’m writing another novel, so hopefully I can give you a range of books to choose from, if you so wish.

Well, I think it might be an idea to see if that abundant grey has disappeared. Though let’s pray the hair hasn’t, eh?
