Beyond Love

By J. J. Lore

Evernight Publishing

ASIN:  B01EMHUVV4

Blurb:

Every mining outpost needs a sheriff, and Eidan Cozad is just the Eleoni for the job. Newly arrived on planet with his deputy sister in tow, he faces corruption, hostility, and nearly continuous rain. A chance encounter with a defiant human postal worker adds yet one more complication to his mission.

Neat and tidy Teah Ruida thought when the Eleoni arrived and enforced some law and order, it would be easier for her to deliver her packages. Instead, she’s somehow become embroiled in spat after spat with the handsome and assertive Sheriff himself. Even though she doesn’t want to think about it, she’s become madly curious if the rumor about the strange markings Eleoni hide under their clothes is true.

Tension between Eidan and Teah ignites into passion that defies the barriers between their races. When there’s a violent ambush initiated by the settlement’s criminal organization, the future of their love hangs in the balance.

Teaser Excerpt:

Eidan had been enjoying himself immensely. Watching Teah’s outrage grow as her eyes sparkled and her cheeks flushed, had made him forget all about the bruises forming on his torso and the chill rain surrounding them with grim humidity. He hadn’t teased a pretty woman in far too long.

He’d taken advantage of her distraction and moved close to her, his body urging him to stay near, be as tactile as possible because everywhere he touched made him want more. She didn’t seem to be searching for an escape as she had upon their earlier acquaintance, but that might be because she was so aggravated. She frowned, and he braced himself for a snappy comeback or perhaps even a push to move him out of her orbit. Instead, she reached out a hand and grasped his shoulder all while she rose up on her toes and pressed her mouth to his.

Shocked at her actions, he failed to react for a few beats. Such tender lips, so sweet. The unexpected caress had him reeling, so when she drew back, still frowning, he took only a moment to decide return the gesture, and he wouldn’t be nearly so chaste about it.

“See, I can be—”

He stopped her protest with a kiss of his own, circling one of his hands around the back of her head as he allowed the other to drop to her waist as he took over. With only a few nudging encouragements, she’d opened her mouth to him, allowing him to taste her, tease with his tongue in a new way as she quivered in his grasp. With a pent-up little moan she leaned against him, her breasts firmly pressed to his chest. His cock, which had been on alert since he’d first touched Teah, now sprang to near-painful attention.

Teah kissed him back, her little nips and licks the only encouragement he needed to lift her up and press her against the wall of the building sheltering them. He grabbed at her thighs and pulled them around his waist even as he ground his hips into her, his thickened cock sliding along the plump flesh between her legs. All the residual adrenaline from the fight ignited in his veins as he allowed sexual energy build between them. He wished he’d removed his damned gloves so he could finally grasp some of her curves.

She made a soft sound deep in her throat and clutched harder at his shoulders, her tongue teasing his then retreating to the safety of her mouth. He followed with a foray of his own and her whole body softened against his as he thrust his tongue inside her. A sudden flash of awareness filled him: Teah would melt against him when he penetrated her. She was incredibly responsive and he was certain when they finally had intercourse, it would be a fulfilling encounter. The way she suddenly clamped her thighs around him and rocked her pussy against the ridge of his cock only confirmed it.

The sudden chirrup of his alarm startled him, and he pulled away from Teah’s succulent lips, the need to return to duty overriding arousal in a painful snap. Teah’s head fell back and she blinked groggily as he answered his comm link summons. An emergency required as much of his attention he could provide even though he was in the middle of foreplay.

“Hey, Eidan! How’d the fight go?” His sister’s voice rang out in a cheerful query, and he winced. No emergency, just inopportune curiosity.

“I won.”

At his brief answer, Teah focused on him, then glanced down their tightly entwined bodies. A deeper blush rose up her cheeks, and she pressed at his forearms and wriggled her legs. Her movements were quite stimulating—everything about her was stimulating in fact, but it was clear she was trying to escape him yet again. In response, he tightened his grip on her full buttocks and she let out a tiny squeal.

“What was that? Are you still at the location? Do you need me to escort you out?”

“No.” He included Teah in that denial. She was staying exactly where she was. The woman in his arms sucked in a breath and pushed at his chest. He flinched because she happened to compress a new bruise and he almost lost his grip on her. She took advantage of his divided attention and kicked her legs. His cock appreciated the rhythmic motion.

“Let me down,” she whispered with a scowl.

“Who was that?” Brida asked quickly. No longer willing to put up with eavesdropping, Eidan reluctantly removed one of his hands from the lush curve of Teah’s ass and hit private link on the comm. Now his sister wouldn’t be able to hear anything but his voice. As soon as he let go of her, Teah struggled in earnest and with an agile twist she was free, ducking under his arm as he reached for her.

“Was there anything else?” he asked as he followed Teah along the walk. She picked up the pace, and he allowed himself the luxury of watching her hips sway.

“Not really. Just checking in to make sure my little brother hadn’t gotten his skull cracked open by some smelly human savage.”

At these words, Teah spun around suddenly, a thunderous frown on her face. “Smelly human savage?”

“You’re not a savage,” Eidan tried to reassure her, though the idea of Teah sinking her teeth into him as they engaged in a naked tussle definitely brought out the primal in him.

“Who’s a savage?” Brida asked.

“No one’s a savage.” He nearly shouted it, frustrated that Teah wasn’t touching him and that his sister had used such a derogatory term so openly. Yes, they had joked about how primitive human society seemed, but it wouldn’t do to entertain even superficial judgments now that they were here among their new constituents. “Brida, I’m signing off.”

With a jerk of his hands he shut off the link and faced his peeved human.

“Don’t even think it.” Teah warned him off with a raised hand. She shuffled backward and eyed him like he was armed and dangerous.

“You don’t know what I’m thinking.” Eidan knew it was a lie, the bulge in his trousers clearly advertising what he was after.

 

J.J. Lore Bio:
J.J. Lore has been interested in the dashing men who roam outer space since she was transfixed by Han Solo piloting the Millennium Falcon a long time ago in a theatre far, far away. Sadly, there is no way for her to join in the fun of intergalactic adventures unless she writes them, so that’s what she does whenever she isn’t taking care of the business of life. If you can’t find her typing madly on her sluggish keyboard, she’s probably poking around in a thrift store searching for the perfect pair of worn jeans or a vintage kachina bolo tie. These days she puts her anthropology degree to work when she whips up dishes from many different cultures, most of which benefit from a liberal dose of sriracha or a smear of green curry paste. Her favorite reading topics are costume history, epidemiology, and permaculture, all of which she’d like to work into a story if she’s suddenly overcome with a brilliant idea someday.

Excerpt ~ Ruled by J.J. Lore #PlanetAlpha #SciFi #Menage @EvernightPub @JJLore1

ruled (3)Ruled

By J. J. Lore

Planet Alpha

Released: 6 March 2015

Evernight Publishing

ASIN: B00U8389HK

 

Ruled blurb:

While on a clandestine visit to Earth, Prince Edem of Alpha and his bondmate Mallet by chance meet a humble cook who intrigues them. The impulsive prince feels a brief fling with an exotic human female sounds like the perfect way to conclude their travels, while his more pragmatic bondmate urges caution.

Despite all the reasons to avoid her, the Alphans seek her out, intrigued by her prickly pride and defiant disposition. For her part, Corrine is intimidated by these imposing and mysterious alien men, but finds herself overwhelmed by their determined courtship.

Edem and Mallet convince themselves their deepening feelings for Corrine do not have to include bonding, since such a commitment is forbidden by the King and subjects of Alpha, determined to keep the bloodline pure. But when danger threatens, the three are forced to choose between having the galaxy at their feet or losing each other forever.

J.J. Lore bio:
J.J. Lore needs three things; strong, black coffee, time to write, and…well…you can guess the third. When she isn’t inventing fantastical tales filled with passionate people, she’s shaking sriracha on whatever she’s eating or reading about the Justinian plague.

Ruled excerpt:

They made her shake. She’d thought it was first with anger, then fear, but as Mal eased his mouth against hers while Edem circled his fingers down her back, she knew she was shaking with lust. How had she gotten here? She’d been so insulted by the gift she’d rushed to them thoughtlessly and had somehow admitted to them she was frightened of sex, but now was barely able to keep on her feet for the heat blooming in her pussy.

Someone’s hands were pulling at the hem of her shirt, and she drew away from Mal to glance down and discover Edem had insinuated his fingertips underneath the material and was now rubbing along her bare waist. Her skin tingled. Mal reached for her buttons and had the front of her shirt open before she realized what was happening. When the cool air reached her nearly exposed breasts, she automatically reached to bring the edges back together, her breath rushing in and out with a mix of desire and caution.

“Let us see and touch. Just here,” Edem said softly as he caressed her lower back. Mal stared at her, his eyes darkening as he gave a slight nod. It was stupid to even consider it, but she seemed to be doing lots of stupid things lately. This could be the test. She could say no and hope they would stop. Would they let her control this? She didn’t want to say no yet, though. She sucked in a breath and urged her stiff fingers to cooperate as she released her grip on the shirt. She was wearing a bra, so she could say no when then tried to remove that final layer and expose her.

Edem let out a sigh and tugged at her sleeves, her blouse falling from her shoulders. She couldn’t stop her shiver as the cool air trickled across her back and stomach. Mal tightened his grip on her waist, and with a start she realized he had a sizeable erection and it was pressed into her belly. Normally, she’d shy away, but somehow knowing how aroused he was pleased her rather than made her anxious.

Mal trailed his fingers along her collarbones. “You’re lovely.”

“So delicate,” Edem chimed in, and she glanced at him, wondering what he thought of her faded, repaired bra. He was a powerful man on his planet and was probably used to women who were perfumed, groomed, and attired in beautiful chiffons and laces. She failed on all counts.

Sliding his hand along her side, Edem cupped one of her breasts, pushing her flesh slightly up. Her nipple contracted in a painful nub, and she inhaled deeply. He ran his thumb over the sensitized bit of flesh, and the material of her bra bit into her.

Mal dipped his head her way, long strands of his dark hair trailing along her bare shoulders. He pressed a kiss to the top swell of the breast Edem was holding, and she shook at the sensation of both of them caressing her in synchronicity. She clenched her hands in confusion. She wanted to touch them but wasn’t sure how. She’d always been confused and tense with the few men she’d been with, which had undoubtedly contributed to her discomfort with the act.

Soft lips nibbled at her neck, and she leaned away from him, not to avoid the touch as she should, but to allow him more room. The ticklish sensations crept over her nerves, and she compulsively reached up to clutch at Edem’s head, her fingers sinking into his surprisingly silky hair. He bit her throat gently in response, and a surprised moan burst from her. Before she could think further, Mal had fastened his mouth over her nipple and pressed his teeth to the sensitized flesh. Her whole body jolted uncontrollably, and she cried out, unable to hold back the sound of surprise and excitement.

“It would be better without this,” Edem whispered in her ear as he ran his fingers under the shoulder strap of her bra. Mal rumbled against her breast, and she reached her other hand out to trace into his hair, careful to avoid those curving horns. “May I?”

 


 

#MeetandGreetMonday with J.J. Lore #Sci-Fi #Menage #PlanetAlpha @JJLore1

MGMondays

 

Good morning. It’s Meet and Greet Monday!

With us today is Romance Author, J.J. Lore.

 

Welcome, J.J.!

Hello! Thanks for hosting me. I’ll try to wake up and be coherent even though it’s Monday.

What is a typical writing day like?
In an ideal world, I’d get up, have hot coffee and eggs benedict, then about eight uninterrupted hours to write to my heart’s content, with a break for a wedge salad and some iced tea for lunch. But, even though I write fiction, I live in the real world, so somewhere in between caring for a seven year old child, laundry, cooking, and desultory housekeeping, I try to sit down for at least a couple of hours a day at the computer and write. My time is very fragmented, so when I have the chance to be creative, I focus and get the words out. I’ve successfully completed two NaNoWriMo books and always served a home cooked dinner every evening of those months, so multi-tasking is a must.
Tell us a bit about yourself. Where do you live, do you have a significant other, any young ones running around?
As I mentioned above, I have a young son and I’m lucky enough to get to stay home with him thanks to my husband’s work. We live in central Ohio, in a beige house in the suburbs and drive non-descript sedans. I shop at Kroger and work out every other day. My favorite stress relievers are reading, watching movies, and going to thrift stores. You’d never guess I use my computer for writing erotic romances!

What is your favorite junk food?
Ooh, I have so many! I love any sort of dark chocolate, red wine (cab sav or a nice blend), cured meats, smelly cheeses, Cincinnati chili dogs, Pringles…now I’m getting hungry.

Preference – Sam or Dean Winchester? If you haven’t seen Supernatural (and why not! It’s MY Fave show LOL), then would you prefer Iron Man or Wolverine?
So sorry, but I’ve never seen Supernatural, so I’ll have to pass on that one. I can’t stand Iron Man and all his snarky little quips, so I’ll go with Wolverine. I’m a fan of chest hair.

What are you a collector of?
I love so much stuff (see above reference to thrift stores!); vintage evening bags, Trifari pins, Waterford crystal, cookbooks from the 1970’s, and French cast iron enameled cookware. I just bought a gorgeous iridescent emerald green beaded snap clutch from the 1950’s in perfect condition and I can’t stop looking at it.

Have you ever thrown a book you’ve been reading against the wall because you couldn’t finish it?
No. My dissatisfaction with a book is expressed by a curled lip and a raised eyebrow, followed by a quick burial in the Goodwill box.

Who is your celebrity crush—male and female?
Mmm, lots of male crushes; Idris Elba, Richard Armitage, Eric Bana, Aaron Eckhart, and Patrick Stewart all come to mind. Female crushes…Christina Hendricks and Cate Blanchett.

If you were given an all-expense paid, five day/night trip to anywhere, where would you go?
Only five days? In that case, I’d go to Japan. I’d love to see the contrast between urban and rural areas and I adore Japanese food, so I know I’d have a great time.

What is the most played song on your iPod/MP3 Player?
Urk, I don’t own either. I still use CD’s! My go to writing music is anything by Vangelis or Sigur Ros.

What song are you most sick of hearing on the radio right now?
Let It Go from Frozen. I wish everyone would just LET. IT. GO.

What is your favorite movie from the 80s?
The eighties were my decade, so I can’t pick just one. Blade Runner, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, Aliens all of those come to mind.

Which Avenger character are you? (Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, etc.)
Let’s see, I’d marry Captain America, kill Iron Man, which means I’d have to…wait, this isn’t F/M/K? Sorry, got distracted there for a second. I’d like to think I’m Captain America, but I’m sure my family thinks I’m the Hulk. I do have a temper.

What is your favorite part of summer?
Walking barefoot in long grass, fresh berries, and sleeping in.

If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, real or fictional, with whom would it be?
I’m not really envious of other people’s lives, so this is difficult for me. I’ll have to say I’d love to live as an extremely wealthy Roman at the height of the Empire, perhaps 100 A.D., in Rome with a quick side trip to a coastal resort town. I’d love to see the architecture, all the different cultures mingling, watch a chariot race, visit a fabulous bath house, and try some of those amazing dishes like roasted flamingo tongue or potted doormouse. Then again, maybe not some of those dishes.

If you had the chance to meet one author – past or present – who would it be? Why?
I’d love to meet George MacDonald Fraser. He wrote these amazing historical fiction books about a Victorian cad named Flashman. I love the character, the humor, and all the great references to British colonialism.

Who/What are you currently reading?
Right now I’m reading Greg Isles’ Natchez Burning. Really great story set in the modern South with a sub plot involving the civil rights movement.

Writing can be a crazy business. How do you stay positive within the craziness?
I keep the creative side separate from the business side. If you let your emotions and ego get caught up in what reviews say, or your sales figures, or rejections, you’ll become miserable and quit. Telling stories is completely different than selling them.

What do you think is your greatest strength as a writer?
The ability to focus and my determination to keep the story logical.

Did you always want to be an author?
No! I never even considered it until I sent a manuscript off to a publisher on a whim and they accepted it. Before, I’d written lots of non-fiction in my professional life, but the idea that a story I’d made up was entertaining to someone else was a complete shock.

No matter the story, where do you always draw inspiration from when you begin each story?
Being true to my characters and making sure they get their HEA. I like my characters and want the best for them. They have to persevere in the face of a lot of obstacles because that makes the story more fun, but in the end, I’ve never written a character I wouldn’t want to have as a friend or neighbor.

What was the worst summer job you had in your teens?
Looking back, none of them were that bad, but working in a deli could be disgusting sometimes, especially since I usually closed, which meant I had to clean a day’s worth of grease and food residue off of slicers, counters, trays, and the floor. Don’t even ask about how awful it was to clean out the grease trap under the sink. I’m gagging just thinking about it.

Excerpt:

It was strange to wake up in a bed with an alien male, no, two alien males, she amended. She glanced over to see Leo was still asleep, sprawled on his belly, his head cradled on his bent arm. Lots of thick muscles under gleaming skin on display. They both looked so strong.

She turned her head back to Deklan and jumped with surprise to find him watching her with half-closed, sleepy eyes.

“Sleep well?” he whispered.

She nodded. Deklan’s eyes crinkled at the corners. He inhaled and stretched his arms over his head with a sigh, inadvertently dislodging the sheet even further down his body. He was wearing dark pants so there wasn’t much more she could see, not that she should be looking any further. She couldn’t quite take her eyes off him, though. As he lowered his arms, the one closest to her nudged along her shoulder and coasted down her arm, his large hand finally coming to rest next to hers. He edged closer and watched her for a moment. She could feel the heat of his body.

“Do I look very different?”

“Different than what?” Aura whispered back, unwilling to disturb Leo when he’d been so kind to her.

“A human male. I’ve never seen one in the flesh nor seen a human female until the ship landed.”

“You look different. Bigger, stronger. Your skin is…” She trailed off, not quite sure how to put her newfound affinity for gold.

“Is what?” Deklan rubbed his hand along his chest, bumping over swells of muscle, disturbing the fine black hairs tapering down his abdomen. His voice was rough, and the timbre of it vibrated some previously unknown part of her ear.

“It’s beautiful.” Her honest assessment resulted in a disbelieving smile from the Alphan lounging next to her.

“It serves its purpose. I’d never call it beautiful, especially compared to yours.” Deklan glanced at her face, then her shoulders and arms exposed by the borrowed tank she’d worn to sleep. She knew she was blushing since her face was so hot. In an effort to compose herself, she looked over at Leo to find he was still deeply asleep, unmoving from when she’d last seen him.

A large hand sliding along her arm brought her attention back to Deklan to find he’d edged closer and turned so he was curving against her now. Maybe he was just affectionate in the morning, maybe—

The sudden press of a hard cock against her hip made her shiver. At least, she assumed the hard, warm shaft she could feel through her thin clothing was a cock. Deklan was alien, so perhaps his equipment was different. Although why he’d be aroused in proximity to her was a mystery. Perhaps he was similar to a man and this was just the usual morning reaction.

“Your skin is so smooth and soft,” he murmured as he ran his fingertips along her hip, then her belly, cloth bunching up under his fingers, exposing some skin at her waist. The slight parting of fabric made her shiver, made warmth spike into heat along her nerves. “Not frightened?”

“No,” she whispered, caught up in the intensity of his gaze, the sheer sensual pleasure of having someone touch her.
