Taken by the Sheikh #99c Boxset Amazon Bestseller #MySexySaturday



This week's theme is I'm so Sexy, and here I'm showcasing 7 paragraphs from my recent release,  The Sheikh's Mistaken Bride from the box set Taken by the Sheikh.

Special price of 99c until Valentine's Day

This scene comes just after the hero, Khalid (aka as Andre) has asked Sanura to marry him. He has some persuasive techniques :-)  





He pulled the lingerie down her thighs and discarded them, exposing her to his avid gaze. “Tell me you accept my proposal.”

It was a command, but how could she refuse when he worshipped her body with his lips and tongue?

“Yes.” It was a sigh of surrender. Andre loomed over her, like a god from ancient times. His dark hair fell over his face, giving him a wild, dangerous air, and she mindlessly hooked her legs around his thighs.

Triumph glittered in his eyes, but she didn’t care. It was what she wanted.

He captured her lips, his kiss a mark of possession. The head of his cock pressed against her, but he didn’t push inside.

Finally he broke the kiss. She gasped incoherently and plunged her fingers in his hair, but he was immovable. “You won’t regret it.” His voice was little more than a growl and sent shivers of need racing across her skin.


She groaned, and dug her heels into his taut ass. She didn’t want to talk anymore. She just wanted him to love her, the way he had loved her throughout the previous night. With a feral grin Andre thrust into her, his thick length filling her completely. She bucked mindlessly, taking everything he gave her.

 Taken by the Sheikh has recently hit two bestseller lists on Amazon UK, and the Romantic Erotica List on Amazon US

The Sheikh's Mistaken Bride #MySexySaturday ARRA Finalist 2014



This week's theme is I'm so Sexy, and here I'm showcasing a scene from my recent release,  The Sheikh's Mistaken Bride from the box set Taken by the Sheikh.

This is the scene when the hero Khalid catches sight of Sanura from across the opulent foyer of his hotel. He discovers he can't tear his gaze away :-)







Her dark hair, with an intriguing hint of copper highlighting her long tresses, was unbound, and beneath the black shawl her dress was a splash of vibrant flame. She stood in the center of the foyer, looking regal and serene, apparently unaware of the admiring male glances arrowed her way, and an unprecedented wave of possessiveness rolled through him.

She was his.

The thought was so powerful it stopped him in his tracks, mere inches from where Sanura stood. Of course when she was his wife no other man would dare to look at her with lust in his eyes, let alone touch her. But it was a shock to realize he wasn’t thinking of royal protocol or etiquette or the accepted traditions of his forefathers.

He was thinking purely of himself.



Taken by the Sheikh is a finalist in the Australian Romance Readers Award for Favourite Contemporary Romance 2014.

Bio

Christina, Cathleen and Mel have been good friends for years, so when Cathleen came up with the idea of us writing a box set together both authors jumped at the chance to create an exciting, interweaving story about three sheikhs finding love.

Cathleen’s Bio: Cathleen loves writing for Harlequin and Escape publishing. Her latest release: Secret Housewives of Sydney: Nella has been described as the most shocking of the housewives. Of that she is very proud and glad she writes under an assumed name. When she's not writing for her publisher she's self publishing. Her latest self-published project is Highlander Romance. For a free Highlander story go to:

http://www.amazon.com/Highlander-Forbidden-Fantasy-Book-2-ebook/dp/B005L388OG

Mel’s Bio: Mel Teshco's gypsy-like upbringing saw her living in many places along Australia's east coast. Each new home stimulated an already over-active imagination, where she spent as much time dreaming about fantasy worlds as the real world - the fantasy sometimes being much better.

She is a multi-published author with a love for the written word along with a short attention span that sees her juggling a variety of genres and heat levels in her stories. From contemporary to paranormal, inspirational to erotic, she hopes there's a little of something for every reader out there to enjoy.

Christina’s Bio

Christina Phillips is an ex-pat Brit who now lives in sunny Western Australia with her high school sweetheart and their family. She enjoys writing paranormal, historical and contemporary romance where the stories sizzle and the heroine brings her hero to his knees.

Christina is addicted to good coffee, expensive chocolate and bad boy heroes. She is also owned by three gorgeous cats who are convinced the universe revolves around their needs. They are not wrong.

Lust at First Sight #MySexySaturday Bad Boy Heroes Coming Soon


Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday! This week it's all about a sexy first. So I thought I'd share seven paragraphs of the first meeting between the hero and heroine of my upcoming Brazen from Entangled Publishing. I don't have a title or release date for this book yet but it's smoking hot and super sexy :-)

Jackson Grayson is from the wrong side of town. Scarlett Ashford's family own a powerful media empire. Their 'strictly business' date escalates into a steamy one night stand. But one night is not enough for either of them...



The man standing before her, taking up more space than any mortal had any right to, was over six feet tall with muscles that filled out his black tee to the point of indecency. Her mouth dried as she dragged her fascinated gaze up from his biceps and saw his stubble darkened jaw. A part of her mind registered there was a sardonic smile on his lips, but she was in no state to question it. She was still reeling from the impact of seeing Jackson Grayson in the flesh.
He was built. And he was devastating. But she already knew that from the gossip at work. It was the reason why she’d made the appointment. But even so, she hadn’t counted on him being so perfectly right for her purposes.
“I’ll leave you to it then,” the girl said. Scarlett had completely forgotten about her. She tried not to stare at Jackson’s messy black hair that brushed his shoulders. How would it feel to drag her fingers through that windswept mass?
“Yeah. Thanks, Ella.”
Even his voice dripped with sin. Dark and dangerous with a hint of deadly menace. Strange darts of pleasure stirred in places they had no business stirring. God, she was more turned on than she’d been in ages, and they hadn’t even touched yet.
The click of the door shutting behind her cut through her lustful thoughts. This was crazy. She was here on business. Ruthlessly she pulled up her years of exclusive boarding school education, where she’d learned to hide real emotions behind a cool fa├žade.
She stepped toward him and held out her hand. “Scarlett Ashford.”

Blurb:

As a computer hacker, she demands justice.
As a woman, she craves two powerful and commanding men.

Shana’s been hacking one of Manhattan’s most corrupt executives, making him pay for what he’s done to his victims. Using her skills, she convinces Mike and Cody to hire her at their intelligence-gathering firm, where intimate details help their clients.
Never has Mike met a woman as delicious as Shana. Smart as hell, curvy and assured, she’d be a delightful challenge in bed. Cody’s carnal hunger is equally intense. He and Mike want to know everything about her.
She won’t divulge the secrets of her past. All she can offer is unquenchable desire and her heart.
During weeks of shameless lust and pleasure, Mike and Cody peel away the layers of Shana’s life. The stunning truth changes everything. They’ll do all that they can to keep her safe…and in their arms.

 Adult Excerpt



Shana sucked her bottom lip.
Leaning closer to her, Mike murmured, “Is that a yes?”
Against her better judgment, Shana nodded faintly. She’d send them in the opposite direction of her place then hop on the subway and go home.
Her stomach growled again.
Straightening, Mike brought something up on his phone and handed the device to her. “That menu’s from an all-night deli not too far from here. Decide what you want and I’ll call the order in.”
Shana resisted the urge to sniff his phone to see if it smelled like him. On unsteady legs, she followed him and Cody out of the suite to the bank of gold elevators. Mottled black marble graced the floors and walls of the expansive hall. Art Deco chandeliers rained gentle light on them and the numerous plants. Cody stood to her left, Mike to her right.
She pretended to read the menu. The words swam in front of her. Mike and Cody’s proximity, size and heavenly scents overwhelmed.
The elevator dinged. Her heart jumped. She entered the roomy space, its walls and ceilings lined with gold-flecked mirrors.
Cody and Mike studied her reflection in the glass.
She did the same with them.
After pressing the button for the lobby, Mike inclined his head to the phone. “Anything look good?”
Shana had forgotten about the menu. The elevator’s display showed the floors ticking down. Each whooshing sound marked him and Cody getting closer to taking her where they thought she lived. Them trying to find out more about her that they shouldn’t. Perspiration ran down the back of Shana’s neck and between her breasts. She looked from Mike to Cody then back.
Mike smiled. “What?”
She moved into him without meaning to, her arms wreathed around his neck, her free hand pushing his head toward her. He smelled of coffee and need. Their lips touched. His silky and warm, his cheeks deliciously rough.
A surge of something Shana had never experienced rolled through her. Moaning at the intense pleasure, she brushed her mouth over his and slipped her tongue inside. Wet heat greeted her, tasting clean and fresh. Her knees sagged, bumping his.
Mike wrapped his arm around her waist and hauled her close, his rigid cock snuggled against her cunt. He buried his fingers in her hair, holding her still so she couldn’t get away.
Shana had no thought of escape. She melted into him.
They kissed noisily, their movements too eager. Elbows and shoulders bumped the walls in their attempt to get closer, to touch as much of each other as they could, her hands roaming his ass, his fondling and squeezing her breasts. When they were both out of breath, Shana pulled her mouth free, stumbled away from him and moved into Cody’s arms.
He backed her against the wall, his body trapping hers as Mike’s had. Cody kissed Shana’s temple and cheek, then the side of her mouth before he got down to business.
She inhaled sharply at his tongue filling her, his hand on her breast, her tightened nipple pressed against his palm. He squeezed gently before getting a little rough, then paused as if to gauge her reaction.
With her hand on his tight ass, Shana pressed him closer, wanting more.
He fondled her for all he was worth and deepened their kiss, his stubble rasping her skin as Mike’s had. The slight irritation fueled Shana’s passion. They kissed until the elevator came to a gentle stop then dinged.
The doors hissed open.
Shana staggered from him, her mouth still wet from his kiss and Mike’s. She’d mussed his hair. Cody’s tie was askew. Backing out of the elevator, she murmured, “Good night.”
Before either of them could respond, Shana turned to flee. No way could she ever come back here.
“Whoa.” Mike grabbed her wrist as he had in the suite.
The guard at the front desk leaned up in his chair. His beer belly hung over his belt. His expression said the security cameras had shown him what had just gone down in the elevator. “Everything okay, Mr. Russo?”
“Is my driver out there?” Mike asked.
The guard craned his neck to see. “Yes sir, he is.”
“Please tell him we’ll be out in a few minutes.”
“Yes sir.”
The middle-aged man hurried outside. Mike held Shana’s wrist gently but firmly. “Good night?”
His lower lip shone with the moisture she’d left on him. Several locks dangled over his forehead. Unable to help herself, Shana eased them back. “I need to go home.”
Mike’s gaze remained lifted to her smoothing his hair. “Yeah, we get that.” Cody had just joined them. Mike spoke quietly. “You’re taking off after what just happened in the elevator?”
She lowered her hand. “It shouldn’t have.”
Cody frowned, his expression a mixture of confusion and disappointment. “Why not? Clearly, we all enjoyed it. You did, right?”
More than anything Shana could recall. Their strength was thrilling and protective, an amazing combination she longed for but couldn’t risk.
Her throat tightened. Tears threatened.
Suddenly, she felt beyond weary and so alone she rested her head against Cody’s shoulder. Stupid, she knew, but Shana couldn’t help herself.
Cody hesitated a moment, then ran his hand down her hair. Mike played with her fingers.
She fought against smiling and crying. Crap, her emotions were all over the place.
“You okay?” Cody murmured.
Shana nodded then shook her head then nodded once more.
“You’re hungry and tired,” Mike said, speaking softly. “You’re not yourself.”
She laughed, unable to stop. “How can you say that? You don’t know me.”
“We want to,” Cody whispered.
