Storm Season: Nicola Cameron

storm-season1s

I love Sour Cherry Designs, they do all of Evernight Publishings covers and each of them stick in your memory. Storm Season by Nicola Cameron is no different. Doesn’t it just look yummy? Melanie has created a story that you can’t put down.

PERSONAL NOTE:

Thanks for letting me come on your blog today! I’m really excited about the release of Storm Season — not only is it my first full-length novel, it’s also the first book in my Olympic Cove series, which is best described as “Humans, Greek Gods, and mythological creatures must band together in Florida to save Earth from an insane deity who wants to remake the planet in its own diseased image. No pressure.” The entire series is fantasy erotic romance with science fiction and action/adventure elements; pairing-wise, the first two books in the series are MMM, the third and fifth books are MMF, the fourth book is MMMFF (oh, I’m looking forward to writing THAT), and the sixth book is MF. Yeah, I was never all that good about coloring inside the lines…

BLURB:

Ian West had his summer all planned out — go down to Florida, stay in his family’s beach cottage on Olympic Cove, and work on his science fiction novel. But his plans get thrown for a loop when gorgeous twin sea gods Bythos and Aphros show up in the cove and inform him he’s their fated consort.

As if that wasn’t enough, something in the Gulf of Mexico is turning mermaids into legendary monsters and gods into demons. Now, Ian not only has to navigate the complicated waters of a ménage relationship with twin sea gods, he also has to stop an insane deity and save the whole damn planet.

No pressure.

EXCERPT

“So … you just waited for me? All this time?”

“Yes,” Bythos said. “And you finally returned to us, and dreamed of us as we dreamed of you.” With care, he slid an arm around Ian. “I meant what I said earlier. We will never harm you, and we will never force you into anything you don’t want to do. But we need you, Ian, just as you need us.”

“We do need you,” Aphros said, moving in to lay the softest of kisses on Ian’s shoulder. “You’re the sun and the moon to us. We’ve dreamed about you for so long. Please, Ian, let us love you.”

Ian shivered at the softness of the demigod’s lips as they feathered along his shoulder, tracing the curve to his neck. His desire bloomed again, a warm heaviness settling in his groin. “You dreamed about me?” he whispered.

“Every night,” Aphros said. “You have no idea how you tormented us with your skin, the sounds you made.”

“And your taste,” Bythos murmured, leaning in now and brushing the tip of his tongue over Ian’s skin. “I can’t describe how delicious you are. You taste like everything good in the world. Like home.”

“Like ours,” Aphros said.

Ian moaned at the sensation of their mouths on his neck, their hands wandering across his chest, plucking gently at his nipples. “Oh, God,” he breathed.

“Gods, actually,” Aphros said, lifting his mouth from Ian’s neck for a moment. “Well, demigods, but still.”

“Aph, shut up,” Bythos said, sliding a broad, warm palm around Ian’s jaw and pulling him closer. “We have better things to do.”

BIO

Nicola Cameron is an expatriate Chicagoan who has lived in England, Canada, Holland, and Sweden, and keeps a confusing amalgamation of languages in her head as a result. Currently located in the clavicle of Texas, she has finally mastered the proper use of “y’all,” much to her Chicago family’s dismay.

Despite a healthy interest in sex since puberty, it wasn’t until 2012 that Nicola decided to try writing about it. As it turned out, the skills she picked up during her SF writing career transferred rather nicely to erotic romance. When not writing, she wrangles cats, smooches her husband, makes dolls of dubious and questionable identity, and thanks almighty Cthulhu that she doesn’t have to work for a major telecommunications company any more (because there’s BDSM, and then there’s just plain torture…).

Alex Winchester

untitled

I had a very clear imagine in my mind when I came up with the character of Alex Winchester, Damon Salvatore. Who can’t help but think of that guy and fall a little bit in love with him. Yeah, that isn’t a question. If you’ve got a Y chromosome, then that man has you hooked.
Besides the physical resemblance to a hot vampire, Alex is completely human and my version of a knight in shining armour. The fact that he’s a Dom is a nearly an afterthought, but it’s an important part of him that I’m looking to explore in the next part of Alex and Nola’s story.
The first encounter between Nola and Alex gives you a good idea about what makes the man tick. This is told from Nola’s POV, imagine being on a bad date, you’d either want to throttle the guy or escape out of the nearest window. Thankfully, Nola finds Alex.
Excerpt
The man’s eyes widen at her forwardness. He put down the burger he’d been eating and used a napkin to clean sauce from his lips. “And what would that be?” he asked as soon as his mouth was empty. He was smartly dressed in a suit which had an impeccable cut but he looked much more relaxed than stuffy Tim. At that moment he looked like he was trying hard not to smile.
“I need you to call my phone in about five minutes.”
He looked around her, checking out Tim. He didn’t look unimpressed. “Trying to get out of a bad date?”
“You’ll be saving a person’s life.”
He looked a little surprised, “Yours?”
“No, his. I might actually have to kill him. Somebody that boring shouldn’t be allowed to live. I’d be doing the world a favour.”
He looked back at her solemnly but his eyes twinkled with supressed laughter. “I’ll call it. I wouldn’t want you to get yourself arrested.”
Nola leant on the bar and ordered another cup of tea from the waitress and placed her card in front of her.
“What’s your name?” he asked.
He really didn’t need to know that but the smile intrigued her. “It’s Nola Pryce. Yours?”
“Alex Winchester.”
She touched his arm. “Thank you, Alex. I owe you.”
The intriguing smile set her heart racing. Now if Alex had been her date, she wouldn’t be looking for the nearest exit. “It’s my pleasure, Nola.”

#sexysnippets ‘The Schoolteacher and the Dom’

270930_520274481346605_1319797364_n

Sexy Snippets are seven sentences, taken from a work in progress, or published book, brought to you every Sunday. Mine are from ‘The Schoolteacher and the Dom’, my contribution to Evernight’s Romance on the Go line.

Blurb

Nola Pryce didn’t expect much to happen over the Christmas holidays. She planned on spending it alone, eating too much chocolate and watching bad TV. She certainly didn’t expect Alex, a man with a secret that’s sure to change her life—if she lets it.

Alex Winchester runs The Black Rose Club with his business partner and friend Lilith Yee. It caters to every dark fantasy. But Alex is a Dom without a submissive, until he meets Nola. He invites her to The Black Rose Club Christmas party. A lot rests on this one night. Alex is giving Nola a choice. It’s up to her if she wants to say yes.

This is slightly longer than seven. This is Nola getting ready for her ‘date’ with Alex.

Nola pulled the corset around her waist. Thank God it isn’t one of the ones that lace up at the back. I’d never be able to do that by myself and it’s not like I can ask one of my neighbours. She had no problem imagining the look on her neighbour’s face if she’d asked the old lady to help. She clipped the buckles into place, tugged it into the right position and looked at herself in the mirror. Wait a minute, where’s the mask? Nola grabbed it off of the table and slipped it on.
Then she stepped into the high heels that matched the startling shade of blue of her dress.

Blurb

Jessica Tennyson has a poor excuse for a life, still in her twenties and working in a library. Too scared to live life and face rejection. She only goes out once a month to a restaurant with her best friend. When her friend cancels on her, the good-looking waiter Ben takes it on himself to entertain her. Ben Worthington likes to play and he’s about to tempt Jessica into playing a game that will help them both. If he’s not careful he could end up losing his heart to the beautiful blonde.

Excerpt

She hadn’t even read the menu yet. She closed it and looked up at him. “I really don’t have a clue. Do you have any suggestions?” It didn’t seem to matter that this wasn’t the first time that she’d eaten here. After a few minutes talking to Ben, her mind had gone completely blank.

“I’ve got a few.” There was no mistaking that grin. Ben wasn’t talking about food and Jessica’s heart picked up its pace.

“I was talking about the food.”

“So was I.” He tried to look innocent but Jessica doubted that Ben had ever been innocent in his entire life. “Do you trust me?”

The conversation had changed so quickly it took Jessica a few seconds to reply. “Excuse me?”

“I’ll take care of the food. All you have to do is enjoy it.” As he reached down to pick up the menu, his fingers brushed her hand. Jessica would have thought it was unintentional if his fingers hadn’t lingered, leaving no doubt in her mind he’d touched her deliberately.

“If you keep touching me, I’m going to forget how to breathe.” The words were out of her mouth before she could stop them. Ben grinned at her and picked up the menu.

“I’ll have to remember that.”

Love in One Night by Rebecca Royce: A Review

Love-In-One-Night300x450

Love in One Night by Rebecca Royce

A Prepper Romance

Melanie is a woman prepared for disaster. If the world as she knows it were to come grinding to a disastrous halt, her sustainable living community will be ready and able to take care of the people in their area. She doesn’t have a man in her life anymore, but she has her daughter and that’s enough.

Until a tall, dark stranger drives into her life.

Griffith is on a mission to find Melanie’s ex-husband Victor, who has stolen a very expensive new drug from a pharmaceutical company. Griffith is a man who can find what others can’t. He never backs down from a fight and he’s never afraid—until he sees Melanie. She steals his breath and makes him wish for things he’s never wanted before.

These two people are prepared for everything, except the depth of their own need for one another.

Review

I really enjoyed reading this story. This was my first introduction to Decadent Publishing’s Prepper Romance series and what a start. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of Preppers, people who prepare for every eventuality. Ms. Royce showed the world well, very descriptive and in keeping with the essence of the story.

The romance worked for me as well. I thought that it was a nice touch to have Melanie as a single mum. It isn’t something I’ve seen a lot of in most of the stories I’ve read recently. It added a nice dimension to Melanie. The idea of Griffith and Melanie meeting because Griffith is searching for her husband worked well. Besides some editing hiccups I noticed this is a strong story that deserves a place on your e-reader.
