Author copies!!

All aboard the blog train!

Cover reveal! Kick-ass contest!

In April, Samhain will be releasing the five romantic novellas in their Strangers on a Train series, by myself (as Meg Maguire), Samantha Hunter, Donna Cummings, Ruthie Knox, and Serena Bell.

For a chance to win a set of all five stories, well before they release to general public, simply reblog this post or leave a comment by 11:59pm ET on Friday. Winners will be selected this weekend.

Here’s the blurb for my story, Thank You for Riding, set in the oh-so romantic bowels of the Boston subway system:

The last train of the night might just be the start of something good.

Stung ego or not, Caitlin’s relieved her fizzling relationship is over, even if she’s just been unceremoniously dumped between the copier and a dead ficus tree. At least she has an excuse to ditch the lousy office Christmas party in time to catch the last subway home…to her cat, and early-onset spinsterhood.

Instead of a lonely, chilly ride, she gets an unexpected holiday treat in the form of a nearly familiar face—a handsome stranger she encountered last week at the blood drive.

At the end of the line, neither can seem to let their chance meeting end—until their extended flirtation finds them facing the prospect of spending a frigid winter night locked in an unheated subway station. And they wonder if keeping each other warm is merely a delightful form of rebound therapy…or a memorable first of many more dates to come.

Warning: Contains dorky, harmless flirtation that heats up into some spicy, third-base action.

The next stop on this train is Ruthie Knox’s blog! Check out the details on her story, Big Boy, and comment there, too, to up your chances of winning!

O hai, Making Him Sweat has a cover! And I can has hand-wraps!! Looking good, Mercer.

Out late February from Harlequin Blaze.

Release Day, again!

Confession is out today! This is the fourth of the five Curio Vignettes, episodic follow-up novellas to my popular erotic romance, Curio (the Parisian man-whore book). There will be one new vignette released each month, through December.

For devotees of the series, this is the installment where “it finally happens!” Not as kinky as the first three books, and the emotional torture’s an entirely different flavor. For everyone who survived Reversal, this is your pay-off! Here be the blurb:

Caroly has waited forever to fall in love. An American now living in Paris, she’s finally found what she craved all those lonely years—a passionate, sensitive man, more gorgeous than she’d ever dreamed, and just as beautiful on the inside.

The only issue? Well, that small matter of him being a prostitute.

Didier’s job is more than a calling. It’s a beloved craft, a chance to soothe broken hearts. It’s also a crutch—the perfect vocation for an agoraphobe, never forcing Didier to leave the safety of his flat. Yet the role he used to cherish has soured since he met Caroly, his admirers now feeling more like enablers. It’ll take a leap of faith to cast his fear aside in favor of a future, but when the alternative is to risk losing the woman he loves, he might discover he’s braver than he ever knew.

Thanks! And Happy Thanksgiving to all my Stateside readers! Confession may be set in Paris in August, featuring a Frenchman and an ex-pat, but I was pleased to realize that in it, Didier roasts a chicken, so you may as well go ahead and round it in as a cozy holiday romance! Plus lots of festive sexxing.

Happy reading!

Woot! Special delivery!

Release Day!

Reversal is out today! This is the third of the five Curio Vignettes, episodic follow-up novellas to my popular erotic romance, Curio (the Parisian man-whore book). There will be one new vignette released each month, through December.

Like the first two vignettes, Coercion and Craving, this one’s a little kinky. I suspect it’s also the roughest of the series, emotionally. Here be the blurb:

Didier Pedra can read a woman’s body like a book, sense her deepest needs and satisfy her every craving. It’s his job, after all.

But drop him in the center of Paris, the only city he’s ever known, and he’s lost, reduced to a trembling wreck by agoraphobia. When the world feels too frightening, he eagerly escapes into sex, that realm he could navigate blindfolded. Except one of his lovers—Caroly, the only woman who doesn’t pay for the pleasure of his gifts—insists she prefers the real Didier to the capable, seductive façade. She urges him to let her lead for a change, so he can confront the fears that haunt his mind through the familiar safety of his body.

A night’s cathartic reversal, when the masterful tutor submits to his student’s darkest curiosities.

Craving is out today! This is the second of the five Curio Vignettes, episodic follow-up novellas to my popular erotic romance, Curio (the Parisian man-whore book). There will be one new vignette released each month, through December.

Like the first vignette, Coercion, this one’s a little kinky. Here be the blurb:

What a difference a season makes.

In the spring, Caroly arrived on Didier Pedra’s doorstep in Paris as so many women have—ready to buy an evening’s pleasure with a gorgeous man skilled in the craft of seduction. She was a trembling virgin then, but so much has changed. It’s summer now, and she no longer pays for his company…nor suffers from the delusion that he’s as perfect as he seems. He’s a shut-in with a crippling fear of the outdoors, but he’s also the kindest and most passionate man she’s ever known.

Having grown bolder with every visit and carnal lesson, Caroly’s ready to venture where she’s always feared—into the mysterious chest at the foot of Didier’s bed, filled with the accouterments to cater to the appetites of a hundred different women. Dozens of toys offering infinite delights…all hers to enjoy tonight.

CONTEST!

Hey all! Me and my good pal Delphine Dryden both have new releases out next Wednesday, September 26, from Ellora’s Cave. Mine is the second of the Curio Vignettes, Craving, and Del’s is her new erotic short, Toy Box. Yet more coincidental, both of our new books feature toy chests…of the sextastical variety.

To celebrate our simultaneous releases [har] we’re running a contest, and the prize is a miniature toy chest full of goodies—items featured our new releases, plus some actual books!

Entering the giveaway is easy—you can simply reblog this post, or comment on it, or do likewise with any of the promo posts Del will be sharing—OR—if you’re on Twitter, you can RT one of our tweets about the contest. It’s all kinds of easy. So if you want a box of kinky fun, get to it! We’ll pick a random winner out all the rebloggers and retweeters and commenters on October 1! Good luck.

Release Day!

Hey-oh! Coercion is finally out! This is the first of the five Curio Vignettes, episodic follow-up novellas to my popular erotic romance, Curio (the Parisian man-whore book). There will be one new vignette released each month, through December.

This one’s a touch kinky—beware anyone with forced-seduction triggers. Every last thing in the book is perfectly consensual, but there’s a bit of date rape role-playing some readers may find upsetting.

Here be the blurb:

June has come to Paris. But while his neighbors are shedding layers and going out in search of spring sunshine, Didier Pedra prefers the quiet sanctuary of his garret, content to watch the city’s bustle from the safety of his windows. He’s shaped his life around venturing inside of things—inside clocks and other brass curiosities to pass a lonely afternoon, and, once the sun sinks, inside the bodies and minds of the women who pay for the privilege of sampling his other skills.

But one visitor is unlike the rest. Once a hesitant patron, Caroly is now his eager lover and a challenging but cherished companion. For weeks Didier’s indulged her questions about what other women want from him, but in words only. Now he’s ready for them to take the storytelling to the next level, and act out his clients’ most wicked desires.

Reader Advisory: This story contains forced seduction role-playing.

Six Sentence Sunday #31

Happy Sunday! Long time no tease. Here are six sentences from Coercion, the first of the Curio Vignettes, five episodic novelettes based on my novel Curio (aka the Parisian man-whore book). This story will be out August 29!

It is a strange sensation to lie in this bed, a woman’s body against mine, and still suffer these insecurities. But Caroly’s no longer my client, and when she’s with me now I am only me, the faulty human, not the perfect man women pay me to be. It feels sometimes as though my skin has come off, as though she’s peeled away my clothes and not stopped at exposing my mere nudity, but shed every layer straight down to my heart and nerves and bones. If she lets go, I might come apart.

The anxiety hurts, so I go inside her body in my mind’s eye, and imagine all the places I might take her, within these walls. All the people we might become for an hour or two…women I’ve known and the man they wished me to play.

Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to go check out all the other Six Sentence Sunday excerpts this week.

I will. Thank you, book.

The Reluctant Nude is out in paperback!

My debut romance and Golden Heart® finalist book, The Reluctant Nude, is now available in paperback! You can snag it direct from Samhain, on Amazon, or through your favorite online retailer and select brick-and-mortar bookstores. Here be the blurb:

Chipping away at her resistance, one touch at a time…
 
Fallon Frost’s late foster mother had done so much to heal the wounds of her damaged childhood. So when a lecherous developer plans to bulldoze her old home to make room for a strip mall, the practical, ordered life Fallon has built for herself is threatened.
 
Then he makes a twisted proposal. He’ll leave the land alone if she poses nude for a sculpture that’ll end up in his collection. Seeing no other choice, she heads for Nova Scotia—only to find something totally unexpected. A sexy, hot-blooded, infuriating sculptor.
 
Guarded, sexually detached Fallon is a challenge Max Emery can’t wait to tackle. Yet with each tap of his chisel, he uncovers a woman who rekindles a dream he thought lost. Home, family…love. And the closer he gets to her core, the harder it becomes to accept that he’s carving her naked body for another man’s eyes.
 
As progress on the sculpture almost grinds to a halt, their fragile fantasy world collapses under the weight of reality. Threatening Fallon’s one chance to save her foster mother’s land…and any chance she and Max have to find love.
