“What can I get ya?” a voice said from behind the bar.
She glanced up, and the smile slowly fell from her face. Dear Lord, did Alberta grow their men fine.
This hunk, with short curly black hair and deep brown eyes… She licked her lips. Gosh, she was thirsty. She loved a tall, dark and extremely handsome man, and this one, dressed in a tight red t-shirt, fit the bill.
If only she was here for fun and frolic time. But she wasn’t.stirringupdirty1l
She lifted her gaze to his. Damn work. Letting out a deep sigh, she leaned her chin on her hand. “Could you make me a strawberry daiquiri?”
“Sure.” He winked at her. “My brother is the true mixing god around here, but I’ll do my best, darlin’.”
Oh, what a charmer this one was. His face had a gentleness that she already liked. A bit weathered she supposed from the sun, but still had a freshness she found endearing. He had a look of toughness and she read him as a man’s man but there was a shyness in his eyes that drew her in. She guessed him to be near to her age of thirty-seven.
Candy swung around on the stool and nestled her knees under the bar, eager to admire this man work. His back was to her for a moment, and she raked her gaze over him from head to toe, admiring his ass cupped nicely into dark blue jeans. Probably a few inches taller than her five-six, he was a man who seemed to take good care of himself. His biceps flexed as he mixed her drink.
He glanced at her. “You’re new around here.” Liquid sloshed as he shook up her drink in a tall hand mixer.
She eased back against her seat and nodded. “Brand spanking new.” She smirked when he chuckled. “Just got in a few minutes ago, actually. This is my first stop.”
He poured her drink into a fresh glass, tucked in a long straw, added a tiny dollop of whipped cream on top and set the cocktail on a napkin in front of her. “Needed a drink that badly, did you?”
“Yes and no. I’m meeting someone here, actually.”
Brown Eyes leaned on the bar, arms crossed. “Well, welcome to St. Albert, then. We’re not the most exciting place in the world but we’re one of the safest. And fun once in a while.”
She took a sip of her drink. Closing her eyes, she basked in the sweet and smooth taste of strawberries and rum. The sugar rushed to her head, warming her all over. “I’ve never had it with whipped cream before.”
He stared at her and let out a loud laugh. “Oh, darlin’, everything is better with cream.”

#MidWeekTease ~ “Just kiss me.” #Dare #ERom #MWTease

Happy Wednesday Friends! I hope everyone is doing great!

This week’s tease comes from DARE. Olivia’s friends have officially given her a birthday present that she cannot turn down. And it leads her to more than she ever imagined…

DARE © Kacey Hammell, 2016


The more he came to know her, the more he discovered that under the ‘hands off’ attitude she was a firecracker.

A small lamp lit the room added a sensual feast for the eyes and created carnal thoughts. Deep burgundy and gold filled the area.

If he wasn’t mistaken, the cherry wood sleigh-bed was made up with silk sheets. A sheer golden canopy surrounded the bed.Dare

A dark colored carpet—he would guess rust-colored—was thick and plush. His sock feet appreciated the cushion beneath. Gold and orange candles covered every empty space on her dresser and vanity table.

His gaze shifted, he noticed the dark curtains. They were thick and heavy enough to shut out daylight.

It was a secret haven made for lovemaking.

His gaze locked on the woman in his arms, and grinned. He could really fall for her. He wanted to learn the many facets to her.

However, he had to be patient. He wanted to take his time, uncover it all, bit by delicious bit.

He carried her to the bed, laid her on the mattress, and covered her body with his, elbows on each side of her.

Her dark hair spread out on the burgundy comforter like a satiny wave. He was right: the bed had silk sheets, soft to the touch and smelling of cinnamon. He wanted to close his eyes and breathe it all in. The scent was sexier than he’d ever thought possible. Another aroma he would always connect it with Olivia. She was surprise with a capital S. And he loved surprises.

“This room suits you.”

She smiled and stared up at him. “You think so?”

“Oh, yeah.” His voice hoarse, his fingers slid into her hair, spread it out more. “Beautiful, sexy, powerful. A man might never leave it.”

She giggled. “Some days I don’t want to leave it either. I’ve always loved these colors. They’re so deep and sensual. I feel…”

She looked away.

He tipped her chin back to him. “You feel what?”

“It’s silly, really. Just kiss me.” She lifted her head toward his lips.

“I’ll kiss you, Livvy, anywhere you want, but tell me first.”

A shudder rolled through her body at his words.

He lowered his head, lips just shy of hers, breathing heavy. He wanted to taste her again, needed to, but held back.

“Tell me,” he whispered.

“I feel sexy, really like a woman, when I’m in this room.” Her body moved against his, igniting him further.

His hand stilled in her hair. The other slid over her cheek. His fingers caressed her lips and glided down her neck. Soft, flushed, her skin heated beneath his fingers.

“You’re more woman than you know. The epitome of a woman, I’m coming to realize.” His eyes burned down into her dark green ones, his lips hovered over hers, and the words came easy. “I always thought you were stunning but tonight you’ve shown me you’re so much more. There’s a deep, sexual woman—a controlled woman—that I want to get to know better. I need to know you.”

#MidweekTease ~ “Olivia must find a man…” #Dare #MWTease

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 comes from DARE. Olivia’s friends have officially given her a birthday present that she cannot turn down…

 

“The official dare, Holly, if you please,” Candy piped up.

“No. Wait.”

“Olivia must find a man—of her own choosing—and spend all night with him. Just the two of them, and she must not leave his presence before eight tomorrow morning.”

Olivia dropped her head into her hands, wanting to scream. She was so tired. She didn’t want to have to find a man tonight.

She raised her head and opened her eyes. They landed on a man across the bar she hadn’t noticed earlier. That she hadn’t spotted him earlier surprised her. He was a hard man to miss.

Darren Shalvis. The P.I. her office used from time to time. From afar, she admired his Contemp Erotic Romanceshort, dark, curly hair, styled a little like the hottie from CSI: Miami, Eric something. Darren had a toned, lean body, muscles in all the right places, six-pack abs, and was rarely seen out of the worn, military-style twill jacket.

Some days, she found herself eager for Darren to come into the office, more than she should have. The men she usually liked and dated were desk-types. Three piece suits, briefcases and Blackberrys attached to their hand.

Darren didn’t have any of those qualities. He was a man’s man. Women gawked when he walked into a room, eyes drawn to him like beacons on a landing strip. Olivia’s included.

Christina Aguilera’s Ain’t No Other Man pulsed through the club. The music vibrated over the floor, through the wooden chair and into her body. Her nipples tightened and her pussy clenched as he caught sight of her from his spot at the end of the bar. He raised his glass in acknowledgement.

Olivia gave him a small smile then turned back to her friends. She tried to ignore the beat of the bass moving through her. The words made her think of Darren in a room alone with her and no other man in sight.

“I really can’t believe you guys,” Olivia mumbled.

Finished with her drink, Holly laid her hand on Olivia’s shoulder. “It’s nearing ten o’clock. You best start scoping the place out.”

Olivia shrugged her off, unimpressed with any of them. She stood, jerked a few bills from her pocket, then threw them on the table. Resigned to what she had to do, she needed to make a pit stop before moving forward.

Perhaps if she snuck out the back…

“And no slipping away, Olivia,” Holly said, as if reading her mind. “This is ironclad. We made a pact years ago—”

“Yes, I know, dammit. We all agreed we’d never turn down a dare. Even drew blood to seal the deal. Jesus,” Olivia sighed. “I give up. You three got me, I’ll finish it. But look…” She eyed each of them in turn. “I have my cell. Should I need any of you, at any time, you answer the damn phone. Don’t ask any questions and just do whatever I ask. Got it?”

They all nodded. “Good. Now, I have to hit the ladies’ room, then get on with it.” Olivia muttered.

“Go get ‘em,” Candy called as she walked away.

Olivia squeezed past the endless bodies as she moved through the bar.

Once enclosed in the washroom, she stared in the mirror. She fluffed her hair, then yanked out the lipstick from her pocket. Pausing before she added the pink shine to her lips, she leaned against the counter.

A long, deep breath quelled the urge to scream in rage. Her friends were the best women she knew but when they ganged up on someone, that person was a goner.

Olivia never thought they’d pull something like this on her. Make her find a man.

She smiled as she came to a sudden realization.

Though good, they didn’t realize they weren’t too specific in their dare.

“Olivia must find a man—of her own choosing—and spend the night with him. Just the two of them and she cannot leave his presence before eight a.m. tomorrow morning.”

Oh yes, she’d find a man all right—one who was not a stranger—and would request to spend the night with him, as a favor. What the two of them did, however, the girls hadn’t specified. They could do whatever Olivia wanted, as innocently as she wanted.

Smug now that she’d figured it out and outsmarted her dear friends, she headed for the door.

She knew just the P.I. to spend the night with.

Happy Wednesday Friends! Hope you’re all doing great! It’s become very chilly in Ontario these days. Time to bundle up and put on all those layers!!

This week’s tease comes from DARE. Olivia’s friends have officially given her a birthday present that she cannot turn down…

“Olivia, come on,” Jessica implored. “We’re not going to dare you to do anything that will totally upset you. We just want you to find a man for the evening—for tonight—and have a bit of fun. You never just kick up your heels and let loose.”

“A night of fun? Tonight! You mean for me to do the dare tonight? Come on, where am I going to find a guy to hang out with all night?”

Contemp Erotic Romance

Her friends, though she wouldn’t call them that at the moment, gazed around the bar. Olivia shook her head. “No. Absolutely not. I am not picking up a guy in this place. I don’t see one guy I know or have seen before.”

“Chicken,” Holly grumbled, loud enough for Olivia to hear.

Olivia turned her head and shot daggers Holly’s way. “Shut up.”

“The official dare, Holly, if you please,” Candy piped up.

“No. Wait.”

“Olivia must find a man—of her own choosing—and spend all night with him. Just the two of them, and she must not leave his presence before eight tomorrow morning.”

All About Sexy ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MySexyAuthors #Saturday7 #MSS113

LynnSexySaturday_bannerHello everyone! Thank you for joining me for the 113th week of My Sexy Saturday. And it is my first time participating in this fun blog hop.

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.

Today’s theme is…

All About Sexy

 

Here is a snippet from my Contemporary Erotic Romance, DARE.

Olivia couldn’t remember ever feeling so seductive or unleashed. This man did things to her, made her feel things she never had before. What started out as an innocent evening had become more than she ever thought imaginable. af0f5-darecover373
The dare had frightened her a bit at first. She seldom made the first move with a guy, but seeing Dare across the bar, knowing what kind of man he was, gave her the courage to approach him.
She was thrilled she hadn’t gone with her original plan to just watched movies or talk. He’d unleashed a sensual side of her that she hadn’t been sure existed.
She wanted to explore this newfound freedom more. With him.
He was everything a woman could want. His body amazing—muscled and sculpted to perfection—cock high and thick. His gaze branded her from the inside out.
Feeling alive for the first time in…she couldn’t recall. She’d meant what she’d said about feeling like a real woman in her bedroom. But with Dare, she felt like a tigress going after her prey.
His mouth on hers, she breathed him in, the hint of the beer still on his tongue. His masculine scent was outdoorsy with the hit of chamomile.
She could get used to having his scent on her sheets and all over her body. Very easily.
Drawn from her thoughts, she focused on his lips and hands wandering over her. He had strong hands, sure and soft, with calloused palms that held her captive. Her body tingled wherever he touched.
Dare’s mouth moved down her neck, nibbling, biting. She rolled her hips, and his cock rubbed against her clit. She turned her head and drew in a much-needed breath.
His hands were relentless and intoxicating as they moved over her. He pinched her nipples, rolled them between his fingers until they were hard peaks. Her body quivered. His touch and mouth created goosebumps all over her skin.
She had never been so worshipped or aroused. She heard her own gasps and groans, her body moving restlessly against the silk comforter. Arms wide, she lay helpless as his mouth moved over her breasts. Unhurried, he nibbled her nipples gently, while he explored her body.
Dare rained kisses over her stomach and hips, nibbled on her inner thighs. He was so close to her warmth, she felt the hotness of his breath as he passed from thigh to thigh. She spread her legs wider, wished he’d put his cock against her again. Her clit ached to be touched, her body primed for invasion.
“Dare, please…”
“Hmm, please what, Livvy?” he countered, his teeth on her thighs, licking after each nibble, closer and closer to her center.
“Oh God, please,” she begged, breathless.
Her head came up off the bed as his dark curls moved between her legs. Watching him sent a spiral of heat through her stomach to her pussy. Her juices flowed, her body on the edge of release.
She opened her mouth to beg for more, and a scream broke free instead. Dare’s tongue flicked her clit rapidly. Her head fell back, hips arched, pressing against him.
Dare’s finger slid inside her. Her pussy clenched and yanked it deeper. She shuddered, finding it difficult to breathe. How could a woman survive this man?
His finger moved in and out, as his tongue worked over her and created a frenzy of heat and moisture. Her body tightened as she teetered on the edge. She reached down, his hair tight in her fist. He moaned his approval.
“Dare, oh God.” His finger quickened its pace as her body bucked. She screamed his name.

I’m so honored to be an Evernight Author! I have loved being a part of their family since 2012 when DARE was first published. My writing has evolved over the years, thanks to the support of everyone involved at EP. The authors are amazing, the whole staff is fantastic and I’m so proud to be a part of the family!

Happy birthday Evernight Publishing! Here’s to many more years of working together!!

My first release with Evernight as I said was DARE.

74940-darecover373Legal secretary, Olivia Warner enjoys being single and, aside from her closest gal pals, usually keeps to herself. But the night of her thirty-fourth birthday, she and her friends spend a fun-filled evening at a local bar where her friends dare her to approach a man, and spend the night with him. Olivia’s not one to turn down a dare, especially from her old college pals. She only hopes the man in question is in for some good conversation, because that is all she’ll give him.

Darren “Dare” Shalvis has given up on women. He’s tired of being chased for his money, good looks, and prowess in bed. He prefers to meet a woman who, for once, wants nothing more from him than mere conversation. If only the woman asking him to spend the night with her wasn’t his favorite legal secretary.

Accepting a dare has never been so tempting…
