Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease is from my upcoming Contemporary Erotic Romance — a younger man / older woman storyline — that was contracted a couple weeks ago with Evernight Publishing called, COVER ME. [This hasn’t been fully edited so overlook any errors.]

For years Jay has wanted his BFFs mother, Leanne, for his very own. After the wedding of his bff, Jay and Leanne vacation for a few days and Jay takes the opportunity to show Leanne how he feels about her. But for Leanne, their age difference and the recent betrayal of her ex-husband are obstacles she isn’t sure she can work through.

Wanting her son’s best friend shouldn’t feel so right …

(C) Kacey Hammell,2016

“You gonna sit there all day and gawk at my mother?”

Jay swallowed hard at his best friend’s words. One night a long, crazy one after his first big international photo shoot, in a drunken stupor, he’d confessed his deepest and darkest secret. His crush-slash-obsession for Beau’s mother.2016-06-23-03-24-01

But, Beau hadn’t been all that surprised by his confession, and it had thrown Jay for a loop. He’d been shocked Beau had said nothing to him about it before that moment. And to get caught by his buddy while salivating over the stunning image of Leanne in wedding photos was a tad embarrassing. Gorgeous in a light skin toned, knee-length dress, low cut enough for a nice amount of cleavage, he’d done his best all afternoon to keep his eyes off her.  It hadn’t been easy, but he’d given himself a dozen pep talks and solved dozens of math equations in his head to keep his body in check.

“You need to figure out your feelings for her, man. This obsession you have, not in a creepy way I know, but… Hell, you’ve become a monk, buddy.”

Jay sat back against the sofa cushions and glanced at Beau. His friend was right. Jay sighed as he leaned his head back.

The church room they’d used to get ready for Beau’s wedding now seemed too confining, smaller than he realized. The pine walls and rich mahogany decor were intrusive – too dark and foreboding. He suddenly wanted to be anywhere else.

But Beau’s comments were correct. The last couple years had flown by. And he’d buried himself in work to forget the woman who plagued his thoughts every day.

“Isn’t much hope, Beau. She’ll never look twice at me. Not as anything other than her son’s best friend.”

“If you spend time with her, things might change. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know. You have to find out?” Beau handed Jay a can of soda then sat across from him. “Not that I’m eager for my mother to get involved with anyone. She’s had enough pain. But at least with you, I know she’d be well taken care of and you won’t hurt her.” His gaze locked on Jay’s. “At least not on purpose.”

“I appreciate your faith in me, man. I’d never do anything to hurt her, but she has the power to break my heart.” Warmth coated Jay’s cheeks. He never liked talking about his feelings much – at least not when he was sober – but who else could he trust if not Beau?

“Mom would make mincemeat of you, sure. And it’s one reason I’m not concerned over you hurting her. I trust you. But you aren’t trying now, only becoming a workaholic.” He pulled off his tie and stuffed it in the pocket of his jacket. “Isn’t there a saying about no risk, no reward?”

Our Sexy Mystery ~ @MySexySaturday #Awakenings #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #Saturday7 #MSS129

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3

 

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 129th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


 

This week’s theme — Our Sexy Mystery

Here, Alicia’s friend has been brutally assaulted and while she and Hannah are great friends, she doesn’t know a lot about Hannah’s family.

And she certainly doesn’t expect to find out that her new boss — and ex lover — is Hannah’s oldest brother. The brother that Alicia confessed to Hannah she was in love with …

(c) Kacey Hammell, 2016

“I told them about you.”

Alicia turned and came face-to-face with Cole. Ethan stood to the side of him, nervous, as if he wanted to be anywhere else, a feeling Alicia understood. Ethan’s here, too? Shit, she vaguely remembered one of the brothers mention him earlier. She was more confused than ever. “You told them about me? Why?”

As she stared into Cole’s eyes, the hair on her neck stood up and she turned back to Geoff. Brown eyes, the crow’s feet clearly visible at the corners, the dark hair….

She spun back around to Cole. Inspecting the same eyes, she put the pieces together. She KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600recalled the one night that haunted her dreams with passion and desire, and the small bits of conversation they’d had between bouts of the hottest sex she’d ever had.

“I have two brothers and a sister. As the oldest, there wasn’t a lot of time for me to just do whatever I wanted. Hannah, Nathan, and Geoff demanded a lot of my time after our parents died and I did everything I could to keep them safe and happy. I’ll never let any of them down.”

Alicia closed her eyes as the memories flooded back, surprised she hadn’t put it all together before now. For a year, she’d been friends with Hannah. Neither of them had delved too deep into one another’s lives, but they’d shared a few things. A small world it was, and she had to wonder if Hannah had ever told her brother about her. Especially the one night they’d both drunk a bit too much and shared more than a few secrets.

Fear spiked through her body as she remembered her confession to Hannah…how much Cole Douglass meant to her, even only after one night, and how much she loved his hands tracing her body.

She could only pray Cole’s little sister hadn’t told her big brother everything.

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 128th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


This week’s theme — My Sexy Valentine

This week’s theme is My Sexy Valentine and this theme needs no explanation…show us the most romantic, the most frustrating or the most exhilarating sexy Valentine’s Day ever between two lovers…or maybe even between frenemies.

Share your story’s  most fabulous moments with some very sexy, hot characters in a love that’s destined to last forever, please share them with us…share all those sexy moments that you have between your characters even if your story doesn’t exactly fit the theme this week…remember every relationship is important!

Sexy can be anything, such as romantic moments like walks on the beach, a home cooked meal or even in another galaxy. It could be two lovers here on Earth dreaming about the day where they go on a magical vacation to another planet. Or staying right here at one of those wonderful places we can find in our own world.


 

And here, is the chemistry between Alicia & Cole from Awakenings. They had a one night stand years ago, and now work together — he’s her boss! — which makes for some interesting moments in the story.

(c) Kacey Hammell, 2016

Alicia tilted her head back, giving Cole better access, which he took advantage of immediately. He nibbled his way up from her neck to the sensitive spot behind her ear and she nearly came undone.

She shivered in pleasure. He remembered the one spot that made her weak in the knees. It was as if she were drowning in the sensations rioting inside her. KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600

His hands caressed her waist, his teeth scraped her collar, and her nipples pebbled to sharp points beneath her bra and T-shirt. He cupped her breasts in his hands, tested the weight of them. Alicia couldn’t squelch her moan.

Hand at the back of his head, she rubbed his hair as she absorbed the feel of him under her palm. He pulled back, gaze wandering over her face—perhaps scanning for some telltale sign she would back out and walk away. She met his eyes boldly for a moment.

She had other plans. Ones that didn’t include the ability to walk anytime soon.

She slid her palms beneath the hem of his shirt. Her short, trimmed nails clawed his stomach. She remembered many things from their night together. His sheer enjoyment of having his stomach and chest scratched being one of them.

Cole claimed her mouth once again. He tasted of beer, yet sweet too. Their tongues battled, in and out with flicks and nibbles.

Her pussy clenched with need, desperate to have his lips between her thighs, on her nipples, and anywhere else he wanted to put his mouth. She broke their kiss, drew in a deep breath, and laid her head on his chest.

Beneath her ear, his heart raced as she caressed his stomach, a telling sign he was just as aroused and excited as she was.

He shoved his hands into her hair and massaged her scalp for a few seconds, then applied pressure for her to lift her gaze.

Alicia didn’t want to put a name to the fierceness in Cole’s eyes. She didn’t even want to speak for fear of ruining the moment. Her fingers clenched the hem of his shirt. She pushed it up and over his head as he raised his arms.

Cole’s well-muscled physique was a sight to behold. She wished to just stand there for days and stare. But his body was meant to be stroked and cherished. Before the night was over, she planned to do just that.

“Hang on, baby.” Bending, he lifted her in his arms. Sure he would carry her to his bedroom, she was surprised when he placed her on the counter beside the refrigerator.

#MidWeekTease ~ “If looks could kill…” #Awakenings #MWTease #Suspense #ComingSoon

MWTease15

 

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

Special thanks to Angelica Dawson for rallying authors together to share teases every week.

~~~~~~~

This week’s tease is from my upcoming suspense title, AWAKENINGS.

Here, Detectives, Alicia Knowles & her partner Ethan James have come upon the dead body of a young woman brutally murdered. After what Alicia went through in ILLUSIONS (book 1 of In the Arms of the Law), let’s just say, she is not dealing with it well.

And Alicia’s actions have repercussions that surprise her, and add tension to an already difficult situation Captain Cole Douglass, her boss — and her old lover…

 

(C) Kacey Hammell,2016

“Dammit it, Ethan, get over here. Help me cover her!”

At the high-pitched, crazed tone in his partner’s voice, Ethan had a feeling Alicia Knowles was remembering the past. He strode quickly to her side.

“You know we can’t cover her, move her, or do anything to contaminate the body or KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600scene.” He clipped the radio to his belt and knelt beside Alicia at Monica’s right side. His gaze lifted to his partner’s face. He saw what he’d feared: pale complexion, tight-set lips as concern and fear waged war on her face.

“Pull yourself together.”

Not quite six months had passed since Alicia had been held hostage, naked, gagged, and bound to a chair by a madman with a knife and a bomb. Earlier, when they’d received the call to investigate the sighting of the suspect they’d been on the lookout for, Ethan noted Alicia’s immediate stillness. There had been a misstep in her stride as they came upon the body—clothes torn, beaten, and still bound and gagged—lying in the parking lot behind her apartment building.

“I don’t want anyone to see her like this.” Alicia’s shaky voice washed over him.

The iciness of it chilled him to the bone.

She came back to the job too soon. I should have tried to stop her.

“She’s cold.” Alicia tenderly touched the dead woman’s cheek. “Help me get her off this cold cement. Let’s put her in the back seat of the car.”

To witness his partner wanting to comfort the young woman, a mere four years younger than she, nearly broke his heart.

But common sense prevailed. “Fuck, don’t touch her.” He grabbed her hand. “Dammit, Ali. Just wait for the M.E.” Ethan saw her body tighten with tension, and her gaze blazed fire at him as she lifted her head. She pinned him with a stare he’d come to recognize over the last few months. Rage, ice, and anger in those hardened eyes.

If looks could kill….

Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 127th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


 

This week’s theme — A Sexy Encounter

Today is from an upcoming release, Awakenings. Cole is Alicia’s new boss, and an old lover. They are forced together on the job and Alicia wants nothing more than to forget about their night together years ago. But no matter how much she wants to forget, it’s impossible…

(c) Kacey Hammell, 2016

He raised his hand to her cheek and pushed back a strand of hair that had fallen over her face. Her breath quickened at the light touch. Her body stilled. The air crackled with electricity. She was sure he could feel it, too; the tension rolled off his body like waves in KH_Awakenings_V1_400X600the ocean. To walk away would be the best thing to do, but for the life of her, Alicia couldn’t get her feet to move.

“You know what, Ali?” His voice was soft and powerfully seductive. “You know what I remember most about our night together?”

Alicia clasped his wrist, below where his fingers rested lightly on her cheek. She wanted to fall into his arms, burn beneath his touch again. They’d never talked about it, and she was curious to know what he remembered.

She remembered it all. Every touch and sigh. She basked in the memory of every kiss and every pleasure.

Through many a cold and lonely night, she cherished the memories of Cole’s hard body pressed against hers, pushing her against the mattress—and the wall and the bathroom counter. She marveled at how he’d made her feel like more of a woman in one night than she’d felt in all her adult years.

Her voice hoarse and scratchy, she whispered, “What do you remember?”

“Our fire.”

My Sexy Saturday Page Header #3Hello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 124th week of My Sexy Saturday.

Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.


This week’s theme  — One Sexy Girl

Today I’m sharing from ILLUSIONS again. I shared this last week, in a fuller version, but it fits this week’s theme so much better. Here, Brady is admiring his sexy girl, sharing his thoughts of her beauty.

©KaceyHammell, 2016
Amid the mountain of white sheets and comforter haphazardly spread out from their sexual romp, Bella sat with her back to him, staring out the window.
She looked like a goddess among the clouds. What she saw and what she was thinking he didn’t speculate. He couldn’t.
The vision of her stole his thoughts, and his breath.
Transfixed by the beauty of her golden skin, tanned from exposure to the sun, and her auburn-red mane hanging down her back in a thick, tumbled mass, his heart felt the familiar pinch her nearness caused.
He’d dated many beautiful women in his time but Bella, for all her toughness, seemed more beautiful and fragile to him when she was like this.
