 DQBanner1-NicoleLT2 (2)

Sharayna ‘Rayne’ Piers lives a life in the spotlight as one of the hottest singers around. Beneath her life of stardom a dark threat rises within her thoughts and an unnatural hunger seduces the very core of her. Visions of women getting brutally murdered by an unseen force tortures her mind. When women near her age begin to disappear all over the world, she realizes that her nightmares have somehow become reality. Her life takes an unexpected, but deliciously sexy turn when she is approached by the beautiful demon vampire, Demetri Bithanos. He awakens her dark side and gives her the only thing that will sate her deepest craving. Blood. But her moment of euphoria doesn’t last. The dark lord Lucius — the spawn of the devil — is after her sacred blood and he will do whatever it takes to get her.

“Life is not worth living unless I’m living it on the edge.” ~ Roscoe Deverati

Billionaire playboy, Roscoe Deverati lives his life in the fast lane, breaking hearts along the way. As a result, he has gained more enemies than friends. Of course, with the enemies come retaliation, which explains how his name took the top spot on an assassin’s hit list.

Zoe Monroe, a master assassin, accepts the contract to cancel out some rich hotshot with a huge ego. She immediately gets to work on setting him up for the kill. The moment she sets her riflescope’s crosshairs on him, a strong desire for him rises within her. Ultimately, her attraction to him compromises her mission when he lures her into a sultry cat and mouse chase.

Will Zoe carry out her mission and eliminate him, or will she give into his seduction to find out just how big his ego is? SeducinganAssassin_ebook_Final

More than a few minutes had passed by before I started thinking that maybe my attempts to woo a hit woman were in vain. Here I am standing at the door, staring at the doorknob like an idiot, willing it to turn. “Shit.” And I was so sure she would come.

I sat the second flute down and fished out my cell phone. I fingered in the desired code to locate my anxiously awaited date. According to the small green dot on the screen, she was still in this area.

I zoomed in. Actually, she’s near the building.

I zoomed in further. No, she’s in the building.

Closer. No wait, she’s…

Something hard pressed into my lower back. Icy terror and sexual excitement spiraled through me. I didn’t know whether I should turn around and face her, or stay rooted to the floor in this position with my eyes glued on the door.

After a few seconds that ticked by like hours, I released the breath I’d been holding and took a sip of the champagne. “Thank you for coming.” I finally said. “Would you like some champagne?”

She leaned against me; her breasts pressed into my back. “I have only one question to ask you, then after that, my business with you is done.”

“What will you do after your business is done?” I dared to ask.

“I’ll do away with you, and then all of the women you’ve mistreated over the years can dance on your grave.”

“Surely, you can think of some way I can entertain you before you do away with me.”

As if annoyed, she clucked her tongue. “How did you know you were my mark? Furthermore, how did you get my number?”

“That’s two questions.”

“It’d be wise of you to answer them both since I have a loaded pistol pressed into your spine.”

Smiling, I took another sip. “I do believe you have more than just a pistol pressed into my back, sweetheart.” The barrel dug in deeper, making me wince.

“I am not your sweetheart.”

“Yet.”

My New Rose Collar for the #Dracula Premiere! #Vampires #BDSM #ASMSG #Erotica #FlashFiction

Happy Friday, my lovelies!

DraculaI have a special treat for you today. I’m not sure how many of you follow my posts on Facebook. If you do, you know for the last 3 weeks I’ve been posting about how super excited I am for the new Dracula series, more so since the devilishly sexy actor—Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be portraying our beloved Dracula.

Excuse me while I swoon…

My favorite vampire, Demetri Bithanos, wasn’t too happy to hear about my crush on the new age version of Dracula. Demetri is after all a very jealous demon vampire, though he likes to pretend he doesn’t care. To appease his undead manhood, I promised him the vampire king of all time would only occupy my time for an hour, every Friday. 😀

To celebrate the recreation of the classic monster, Dracula, I penned a flash tale, inspired by the image below.

I hope you enjoy it. 😉

 Collar

My New Rose Collar

I’d been staring at the door for what seemed like hours. It hadn’t been very long since he left, but the need to see him again stretched the time and space between us. He was in my system. I could hardly think or breathe without him.

For the fifth time tonight, I approached the wall-length mirror to check my appearance.

I’d chosen the most lavish gown in my closet for this special night. The lace layered my curves like a second skin. It was sexy, yet tasteful, designed in colors that pleased him—red and black.

The door to the room opened and he appeared like a dark fantasy.

My heart fluttered, my body shuddered.

His sterling blue eyes gleamed like diamonds as he ambled into the room. “My, aren’t you radiant.” He eased in behind me and slipped an arm around my waist. His body fit flush against mine. The faint reflection of his beautiful pale face smiled at me through the mirror. “Up. You know I like your hair up.”

“I’m sorry.” I helplessly returned his ghostly smile. “Are you going to punish me now?”

The gown’s soft fabric crawled up my legs as he bunched it in his fist. “Would you like me to punish you?” He cupped my throbbing sex. A single finger speared between my moist folds and brushed over my clit.

My knees buckled. “Please do.”

He held me tighter. “Is it passion and pain you desire?”

“Yes,” I breathed out on a shaky sigh.

“Then I shall punish you severely when we return from the ball…” He pulled my mane back from over my shoulder and pressed his lips to my neck. “And fuck you to tears afterwards.” The gentle prick from his fangs sent a rush of ecstasy soaring through me. His moans mingled with mine as he swept his tongue over the puncture wounds he’d made. “I have something for you.” He presented a long black case on the palm of his hand.

I made no efforts to hide my excitement as I tore off the blood red ribbon and cracked the gift open. A new collar stood out on black velvet padding. Silk roses lined the leather band. In between each rose was a silver spike.

With this gift, he’d made it official. I was his human love slave. “It’s so beautiful.”

“As are you.” He retrieved it from the case and gently latched it around my neck. With a kiss to my cheek, he crooned, “Now, my pet, let’s go show the undead how stunning you are.”

Who will be Christian Grey? #50ShadesofGrey #ASMSG

CharlieI’m sure most of you have heard the news. Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of the lead role as Mr. Christian Grey. Many people feel some kind of way about this, whether they’re disappointed or elated. I heard someone even started a petition to recast the part for another male actor once they heard Hunnam had been chosen for the role. Really? Wow. Sounds like someone needs to find something more productive to do with their time.

Anywho…

I, for one, am happy he made this decision. The reason being, I don’t think this role would’ve helped his career. In fact, I believe it would’ve crippled it. He’s an actor on the rise, and he’s building quite a body of work to add to his role in the hit series Sons or Anarchy. I honestly feel that taking the role as Christian Grey would be a step down for him.

I’ll explain my reasoning for that comment in a moment.Idris

After starring in Pacific Rim with the incredibly sexy Idris Elba—*swoon*—he took a few big steps up in his acting career. He played the dynamic role of Raleigh Becket and displayed his ability to act outside of the role he dominates in Sons of Anarchy. I believe Pacific Rim was only a taste, and we’ll see him take his acting to the next level in the near future.

Now to explain my comment…

I mean no disrespect to the 50 Shades of Grey fans. I only mean to point out a glaring fact. Let me start off by saying I have not read the complete trilogy. Many readers asked me if I had planned to read it because they wanted to know what I thought of it. I hadn’t planned to add 50 Shades to my ‘must read’ list, but I felt inclined to indulge those who sought out my opinion on certain scenes.

*sigh* I tried really hard ‘cause I promised them I would read it. Seriously people, I tried to finish the first book 3 times! When I have to try to force myself through a book more than once, that’s a clear sign to put it down and move onto another book. Unfortunately, it didn’t grab me like it was intended to. And I was really hoping it did. I wanted the experience other readers got, I wanted to be moved to a state of horniness and it just didn’t happen for me. Not even in the slightest. Let’s just say it’s a less than mild hot sauce compared to what I’m used to reading, and more importantly what I’m used to writing. 😉

So those of you who asked me to read the series, now you know why I’ve been silent on the issue. Sorry. 😦

Putting my personal experience aside, I applaud Miss James for penning a series of novels that has brought a lot attention to the erotica genre. I think all authors should her applaud her and wish her continued success.

Now let’s discuss the general substance of the book. It’s literary pornography, nothing more, nothing less. Many are calling it, ‘mommy porn.’ I guess if you’re not used to reading erotica, that’s the correct term for it. Being that it’s literary porn, when you create a movie out of it, it becomes something similar to soft porn, OR actual porn, depending on how wild the producers and director want to get. 😀 I wouldn’t mind seeing how far they’ll take it, though I must say, I won’t be one of the viewers in the theater when it releases. I’ll wait until the movie is featured on one of my favorite movie stations. That way if anything happens to get me moist between the legs, I won’t have to worry about leaving evidence of my arousal on the chair at the theater. 😉 Don’t look like that. I know for a fact I’m not the only chick who wets the seats when she gets turned on. :p

Okay enough of my silliness. For now.

We’ve established the fact that the 50 Shades movie will most likely be similar to a soft porn, with a lead male character that in many ways abuses his female counterpart, which is why I believe Charlie Hunnam respectfully bowed out. If you think about it, the storyline promotes abuse, whether it’s mental or physical abuse. It’s obvious Miss James confused that with the BDSM lifestyle and failed to do research on it, but nevertheless the story is still a success.

Before Hunnam bowed out, he said he would read the series to fully embody the character Christian Grey. After reading about Mr. Grey, Hunnam either decided he didn’t want to be associated with that character, or he didn’t want to be associated with the franchise in a whole. They said he got cold feet. I don’t believe that’s what happened. An actor who’s already in the limelight for his previous work does not get cold feet all of a sudden. But whatever the reason is, he’s out and hopefully moving on to bigger and better things.

Just so you know, he’s not the first actor to turn down that role. It’s my understanding 3 more actors passed on the role, including Ryan Gosling—a fan favorite.

IanMany have voiced their desire to see Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey. Maybe it would be a good look for him, and maybe not. I don’t know. I like Ian, but personally, I don’t think that role would be a good step for him. I know many of you would disagree since you’re dying to see Ian get down and dirty. 😀 I’m not going to lie. I sort of want to see that too. 😉

From what I read, they didn’t even consider Ian for the role. But Miss James did expressRobertP her desire to see Robert Pattinson as Christian Grey. That’s a blind shot into the shadows. Truth be told, he’s bigger than that role. His acting is steadily growing and becoming exceptional. Being Christian Grey would be a HUGE step back for him. I mean c’mon, have you seen the movie Water for Elephants, or Remember Me? If you haven’t seen them, you’re missing out on some great acting. Be prepared to cry. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

So now that Hunnam is out, who will be Christian Grey?

They should consider an unknown actor, someone who’s just starting out in the movie industry, someone who’s trying to make a name for himself. If they keep going for big names, or male actors who are partially established in this industry, they’re going to continue to be disappointed. I hope not though. 🙂

Who would you like to see as Christian Grey?

Release Announcement for SCARLET MOON #ParanormalRomance #UrbanFantasy #InterracialRomance

Happy Friday, my friends!

I hope you had a productive week and I hope you’re ready for an awesome weekend.

As promised, today I will announce the release, or should I say rerelease date for book 2 of The Dragon Queen Series, SCARLET MOON.

The release date is a week from today, Friday, August 23rd 2013! I am super excited. 😀

The saga continues…

ScarletMoon_ebook_final_2Sharayna “Rayne” Piers has been plunged into a world of darkness, and stripped of her humanity. Half angel and half demon vampire, she is the mythical Dragon Queen, a birthright she finds difficult to accept. She struggles with the dual side of her psyche of good and evil, while fighting the growing urge to sate her unnatural hunger for human blood.

Lucius, the powerful spawn of Satan has risen from hell and released his demons to scour the earthly realm in search of the Dragon Queen. He’s determined to claim her as his mate and use her blood to overthrow his father, so he can take command over the seven levels of hell.

As Rayne’s protector, Demetri Bithanos fights to prevent the master demon from claiming his Queen. As her consort, he struggles with his aching need to be loved by her. But the dark lust of her vampiric nature reaches for the creature who desires to use her blood to fulfill his evil ambitions.

Can Demetri destroy Lucius before Rayne embraces the dark forces growing within her?

And here is a sultry teaser for your reading pleasure…

Demetri slid a hand over the back of her thigh and along the cleft of her nether lips. A soft mewl seeped from her parted lips. Her bent leg climbed up the side of his torso, granting him better access. He delved between her moist folds and trailed along her valley, slowly, going back and forth, causing her hips to follow his motion. She was so deliciously wet. His fingers slid back up to her swelled bundle of nerves, where he caressed it in circular swirls. It quivered under his touch.

She began to pant. “God, baby, you know how to work me up so good.”

“Just keep in mind you worked me first.” He easily sunk his fingers into her moist well where he stirred her wetness.

She purred like a feline in heat.

“I can never resist your seduction, sweetheart. You have authority over my body, and it seems you enjoy taking advantage of it.”

The slight heave of her hips set the pace of his thrusting digits. As she stroked his cock in the steady rhythm, she shuddered and said in a raspy coo, “You like to play with me, don’t you? I’d rather you put your big juicy dick where your fingers are.”

“Impish little angel.” He fastened his lips over hers and kissed her deeply. Their tongues collided and danced as he swallowed her needy whimpers. “Don’t be so hasty.” He briefly caught the ring attached to her flirtatious tongue between his teeth. “Remember what happened the last time I entered you without preparing your body first.”

She rolled her thumb around his engorged crown in a teasing manner, causing his hips to buck forward. “But it hurt so damn good, big D.”

In the Mind of a Dom

Hello, my lovelies. Happy Hump Day!

Today, I want to step into the world of submission. The wonderful thing about being a Dom is manipulating the power of mental foreplay. As many of you already know, or I hope you know, the brain is the strongest sexual organ there is. Once you captivate the mind, the body automatically falls into the seduction.

This passage I’m about to share with you was brought to my attention by a fellow Tumblr blogger. I read it with an open mind and when I got to the end of it, I was beyond hot and bothered. *blush* This Dom knows how to manipulate the mind, leaving his submissive wallowing in needy anticipation. This is probably one of the sexiest passages I have ever read. I’m not sure who wrote it. I wish I knew because I would commend them on their seductive methods.

Enjoy!

For The Love of a Submissive

One of the great joys I experience as a Dom is the ability to control the tempo and intensity with which my submissive’s imagination travels and at what point her anticipation overwhelms her, sending her spiraling into a mental and emotional orgasm long before the physical ones ever manifests themselves.

Mental foreplay long precedes the physical as our respective roles are established and positions cemented. This may involve low soft talk and the subtle giving of direction in both sexual and non-sexual contexts. One of my favorite methods is to quietly ask provoking and embarrassing questions or give soft subtle commands that elicit responses clearly delineating our positions; my dominance, your submission.

In a restaurant for example, I may ask the server if he thinks you look hot in your new evening dress. Naturally he will agree to which I may “suggest” that you stand up and show it to him, commending you to turn around and let him see the back while I comment on how it makes your ass look completely irresistible. Naturally, ever the gentleman, I would then thank you and hold your chair as your return to your seat.

DinnerI may ask you softly if you are wearing panties under your dress (you should know better) and if so suggest that you excuse yourself to the ladies room to remove them. Naturally I will insist that you hand them to me (over the table) when you return to your seat making sure that others can see the transaction. In a low husky voice I may ask if it worries you that you might leave a spot on your new dress since you will be soaked knowing that I intend to blindfold you when we return to the room and slowly tease you into a frenzy, depriving you of your orgasms for hours as I turn your entire body into my playground. I may ask if it worries you that you that I may command you to please yourself, right here in the restaurant, under the table while I watch the expressions on your face. I may tell you that if you fail to reach an orgasm right here at the table, I will be forced to take you over my lap and alternately spank and finger you relentlessly to painful orgasm after painful orgasm back in the room.

Then, having set your mind reeling with a combination of dread and anticipation, I may do none of it at all; suggesting only that you finish your dinner, leaving you wondering what might be coming next and when.

By now, if you are not wet and mentally squirming with anticipation, I have sorely misjudged you. But then, I know you well…I know how to press your buttons.

Back in the room, you are all aflame and desirous and eager to be taken. But not so fast. First, the blindfold. I have you present yourself to me on the bed, head down, ass up. I move around the room making small noises, leaving you to wonder what is going to happen next, when, where, and how. Now is the time when I can truly set your mind whirling in spasms of anticipation. I may brush back a whisp of hair from your face, the smallest touch magnified to outrageous intensity in your heightened state of sight-deprived arousal and awareness. I may trace a fingertip down your spine to your tail bone, leaving a trail of fire and cold shivers in its wake. I may slowly lift the hem of your dress, dragging the fabric tantilyzingly over your bare ass until it rests upon your back, leaving you exposed to my sight and whim. I may make you wait like that for a long, long time as I just sit back taking in the glorious submissive sight of you.

But when the first touch comes. No matter where it is or what its intensity. You melt. All of the pent up anticipation releases like a raging river from a bursting dam. Whatever tiny shards of self-will that might have remained abandon you. You are mine. Given. Taken. Owned.

This is the nature of the mental foreplay of which I speak and so enjoy as your Dom. This absolute control without the need for restraint. You submit utterly and completely to my will and in so doing grant me absolute power over your heart and mind; long before I ever touch your body.

This is the essence of D/s. This is the essence of us.
