New Release Blitz: Be Mine (Love With A Price, #3) by NJ Young @NeilaRocks #EroticRomance #BDSM





Be Mine (Love With A Price, #3)
By: N.J. Young
Genres: Erotic Romance, Contemporary, BDSM
Triggers: Light Bondage, Spanking
Release Date: March 2, 2016
Publisher: Evernight Publishing


After a bad breakup, Dylan Price is ready to give up on love. That is, until Carly Peters walks through the door of his veterinary clinic on a stormy night. Even though she’s drenched and holding an angry, pregnant cat, Dylan can’t stop the thrill of excitement he feels when Carly looks at him. Could she be the one? Or is she just after Dylan for his money?


When Carly Peters comes back to Oakville to help her mom run the local animal shelter, the last thing on her mind is falling in love, especially with the town vet. But no one told her Dr. Dylan Price was a gorgeous ball of sexy. And she certainly wasn’t expecting him to tug on her heart. Can she convince Dylan to take a chance on her? And will she be able to truly fall for a man who doesn’t trust her?



Short Character Interview
Name: Dylan Price
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Profession: Veterinarian
One word that describes me:
I asked my girlfriend that question and she said, “amazeballs.” I’ll just go with that. She also said “awesome sauce,” but that’s two words.
My biggest weakness:
Fluffy kittens. I don’t know what it is, but there is something about fluffy newborn kittens that’s like a drug. My oldest brother says that’s not very manly, but I really don’t give a rat’s ass.
My best trait:
Patience. And trust me, if you met my sister Becca, you would give me an award. The fact that I made it through childhood and kept my sanity is a miracle in and of itself.

That one person(s) I cannot get out of my mind. Carly Peters. She is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met, not to mention the wittiest, funniest, and sexiest. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that she gave me a second glance.

Instead of spending her days writing sexy texts to her husband and engaging in “that’s what she said” jokes, she took that energy and poured it into her books. Sprinkle in a couple of hot guys, a little suspense, and a few sexual fantasies, and her first book was born. She now spends her days drinking coffee at her computer, while diving into the adventures of the imaginary friends who live in her novels. 
N.J. Young was born and raised in the Midwest, and currently resides in the Kansas City area with her husband, two children, and a menagerie of animals. When she’s not writing, she enjoys horror movies, live music, cooking, and telling her kids why they can’t read mommy’s books.

Guest Blog - Kathryn R. Blake, author of Lessons in Love @KRBwrites #FlavoursofSage

Welcome author Kathryn R. Blake to Flavours of Sage!

The business ones
Please give us a short introduction about yourself, I was born and raised in Greenwich, CT, worked at a major television network in New York City after I left college, and in the advertising department of well-known health care company. Moved to the west coast to live with the man I eventually married and worked in Hollywood for a bit. Got married, then slowly moved back east. I currently reside in a suburb of Cincinnati, OH, and I think we will stay here. It's a lot less expensive to work in Ohio than it is in Connecticut.
What genre(s) do you write in and why? I mostly write contemporary spanking romances, which at their heart are traditional romances where the hero's primary goal is to protect the heroine, sometimes even from herself. Why? Because I guess I'm a traditional girl at heart. I love the thought of the man taking care of the woman he loves. I've got a lot more freedom than my heroes give my heroines, which means I can do things that aren't necessarily good for me, like staying up and working all night.
Tell us about your latest release: My latest release is Lessons in Love. The hero is a multi-billionaire who hires a woman recently released from prison. He is certain he can help her regain her self-respect, though he knows his task won't be easy given her past.
Describe your feelings when you learnt that your first book was accepted for publication. Elation, relief, justification, fear. I wrote for many years before my work was accepted by a publisher. Today, I think authors have a lot more options than the "send and wait" method I went through. The adoption of eReaders and eBooks have dramatically changed the industry.
Has the release of your first book changed anything in your personal life? If so, what?  I wasn't on the Internet as much with the release of my first book, but today half my time is spent on promotion and chatting on Facebook. Though I'd be lost without it, a part of me believes the Internet is evil. It sucks away your time from morning until you're ready for dinner, then leaves you wondering what it was you did all day.
Where do you find inspiration? I'd say I get most of my inspiration from my rather vivid imagination, though I can get ideas from many different sources. Usually my stories start with a question that the book attempts to answer.
Who is your favourite character and why? Usually my favorite character is one from the book I just finished writing. I love Rob, my hero, though I'm not sure we'd get along. He's a little too controlling for me. Pam, my heroine, has a lot of internal courage and a generous nature. But the one who makes me grin the most is her best friend, Krista. Krista says what she thinks and even tells Rob off despite the fact he could fire her with a mere snap of his fingers.

The nosy ones
How much of the real “you” is in your stories? A lot, though I think I identify more with my heroes, who, for the most part, are even tempered and reasonable. My heroines tend to have tempers that can be destructive at times. Both are flawed. My heroes all tend to be a little too controlling for my personal comfort, even if I do fall in lov with them, and my primary characters tend to push each other's buttons.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Who was it? I write romance, so I love all my heroes, even if they d make me angry at times, but I had a special affinity for Peter in Acting Lessons. He loved his wife and was determined to win her back even though he felt betrayed by her lack of trust in him. He was an actor/director, so he had a true artistic temperament, but Kate got him to see that not everyone existed to serve his needs, and taught him to be more considerate of others.
What’s the silliest error in a book you’ve submitted? Luckily it was caught before the book got published, but I'd say it was when I discovered I had the word order instead of odor in A Simple Misunderstanding, so the sentence read "Unfortunately, sometimes owners thought it was cute when their doggie scooted or ran in circles snapping at its tail and didn’t realize, until a rather obnoxious order began to permeate the home, that their pet had a serious problem." Makes me wonder what was being ordered. Then again, maybe I don't want to know.
Who is your least favourite of the characters you’ve written? Why? Terrence in Deadly Enchantment is the character I loved most to hate. I don't believe people can be truly evil, but he was as close as anyone can get. He was handsome, eloquent and thought nothing about torturing someone to death merely for his own amusement..
Could you share a steamy scene from one of your books? Sure, this is from "Lessons in Love" where the hero is stretched out on a couch next to the heroine.

His sinful fingers slid beneath her blouse to her bra, so they could remove the barrier and caress her breasts as his mouth recaptured hers in a kiss that drew a sigh of need from deep inside her. He pulled back, his face mere inches from hers. "Open yourself to me, kitten. Raise your leg so it rests on my hip."
Although her breath caught in her throat, Pam did as he commanded. A small tremor of uncertainty wrapped in a blanket of desire journeyed through her when his fingers slipped between her thighs. Moments later, a delicious friction started to build when a rough pad began courting her tender flesh with a suitor's persistence. Her hips jerked as she sought to get closer to the source of delight. Gripping his shoulders, Pam strained to reach the pinnacle of pleasure his touch guided her toward. Then, with an indrawn gasp, she trembled with the force of her climax as her body burst into a symphony of sensation.


The fast ones
Favourite colour? Blue
Favourite pet? My toy poodle
Dog or cat? I currently have an adopted cat, but I'm a dog person.
Coffee or tea? Coffee for everyday, but tea when I've got a cold. I love Earl Grey.
Quickie or candles? I'm a romance writer, it's got to be soft music and candles for me.
Suit & tie or jeans & boots? Both have their place, but I love the look of a man dressed in a well-fitted suit.
Walk in the park or chat over cocktails? Ooh, I like them both. I love to be wooed and I find a candlelit dinner with cocktails and wine to be incredibly romantic. But holding hands and sneaking the occasional kiss while going for a walk through a wooded park also appeals to me on a sensual level.



Promotional info
Lessons in Love is Kathryn R. Blake's sixth novel with Blushing Books, and fifth spanking romance where Domestic Discipline is primary to the plot.  Although Kathryn is relatively new to the spanking romance market, she is not new to stories where the hero spanks the heroine.  In fact, most of her novels have some sort of spanking in them.  However, even in Kathryn's novels where the hero firmly believes in using spanking as a deterrent, he has no desire to cause the heroine injury and takes no delight in hurting the woman of his heart.  In fact, sometimes he finds it extremely difficult to follow through on his threats or promises.
To date, all of her heroes are dominant, alpha males who are extremely protective of the women they love.  However, part of that protectiveness includes the need for a certain amount of control.  They do not suffer defiance or disobedience lightly. Even so, these men aren't infallible, and they do make mistakes, but love and respect will always triumph in the end.
Kathryn has been a member of RWA since the early 1980s and has joined several local and special interest chapters. Besides writing, Kathryn enjoys traveling, reading, attending the theatre, and is a passionate lover of animals, so much so that in 2015 a stray cat adopted her. The stray now sleeps in Kathryn's bed.  She has also recently taken up the expensive hobby of making and selling jewelry.
Her personal website, www.kathrynrblake.com, is filled with photos and links to information about her many interests as well as peppered with quizzes, contests, games and lots of other fun things to do and she loves to hear from her readers, so she has an e-mail link at the bottom of every page.

LESSONS IN LOVE

His management style might not be HR approved, but he was the boss and she was his assistant. So, he set the rules.

Pam Weston didn't have many choices as far as employment went. Her prison sentence saw to that. With limited secretarial skills, and an even more limited budget, she never considered herself executive material. So, when she was ordered to report to the CEO of her company as his new personal assistant, she fully expected to be checking out the "Help Wanted" section of the paper before the day was over.
Robert Peterson knew his management style was not HR approved, but he believed in using the stick as well as the carrot. Employing the tenets of domestic discipline, he helped mold his personal assistants into confident women who recognized their own self-worth. Even so, his unorthodox methods were only one of the reasons many considered the position of his assistant to be a revolving door. To Rob's mind, Pamela Weston was perfect for his purposes, though given her past, he expected convincing her to agree to his program would be a challenge.

#NewRelease: Fractured Fantasies: Vol. 1 by Torie James #Erotica #Fantasy @Writergurl216





Past the shadows of lust and temptation there is a secret dimension of dark, forbidden desires. Abandon rational thought and step into a world of shattering rapture, furious ecstasy and burning secrets. Worship the flesh and submit to carnal seduction but remember passion comes at a high price. What are you willing to pay?



Book One — Point of No Return

One night a year, impiety and temptation take center court at the invitation only event hosted by the mysterious Avan Noxturna. Decadent darkness, burning lust, and wicked intentions hide behind innocent masks in the most innocuous places. The fires of hell may blaze hot, but the flames of passion consume common sense when obsessive memories escape to ignite an inferno of intimate bliss that will sear both saint and sinner.



Book Two: No Change Policy in Room 8

Nerdy sexpot, Maggie, is good at minding her own business. But when Tall, Dark, and Horny makes his presence known, she answers the siren call of anonymous lust on the first ring. Able to get her juices stirring, she’s more than willing to give this contender a shot. It’s been a long time since someone made the grade. Thinly veiled secrets don’t hold water when mystery bleeds into misery and pleasure demands payment with pain.



Book Three — Reclaiming the Rabbit Hole

Madly erotic and impossible dreams have turned Edee Carroll’s waking hours into an embarrassingly nightmarish reality. Carnal passion and a curious nature lead her through the doorway of a doctor specializing in her problem. There are some doors that should never be opened and when the road is paved with crooked desire and dangerous secrets, it doesn’t matter which direction the truth leads. Time is running out and there’s a thin line between satisfaction and suffering.



Book excerpt ((4/5 Heat Rating))

A blast of icy pain raced down her back, making her blink with the sudden onset. Her breath hitched, as though her ribcage buckled, compressed then released. A dull ache set up shop along her spine. Alarmed at the symptoms, she managed to set her shoulders stiffly, casting her gaze over the sea of people, weaving her way through, politely excusing herself when stopped by happy, drunk guests. She had done a full perimeter of each floor and now it was time to get to her office and wait for the offerings. Finding the twins, she conferred a few moments before heading to the elevator.

Then she saw him approach and everything receded into a hazy mural of shadows and light.

Golden brown eyes glowed under the lighting, the skull mask framing a chiseled face. Head to toe, in form fitting red, she remained hypnotized by the pure masculine grace, watching him unfurl from the shadows in wraithlike glory, making his way towards her stealthily.

A rush of pure pleasure slammed through her body, nipples tightening right away and for a brief heartbeat, she felt hands on her body and the slow, heated lick of an invisible tongue teasing her throbbing clit. It took her breath away, carnal thoughts first and foremost in her mind. It had been a very long time since she'd gotten laid. Business first, booty second.

He did look yummy…in all the right places.

She enjoyed being a highly sexual female who felt no shame in shagging a man for recreational purposes. Guys did it all the time and they were called studs. A woman with the same goal? Slut. Luckily, she didn't much care what anyone thought. She had no desire to settle into a bullshit relationship where she lost her identity. Her mother had schooled her. She was an island and it suited her fine when the occasional ship came into port, docking on a temporary pass.

A lustful interlude with a masked stranger on Halloween? Cliché. And tempting. She did have a few extra minutes.

Then he filled her vision and she felt her body grow damp under the heated gaze.

One. Quick. Fuck.

Medicinal purposes only.
