Focus on Firsts Promotion and the week that was. Life is good in the Gallagher household.
I love this promotion from Total-E-Bound publishing, giving readers the opportunity to pick up the first book in a new series at such a good price. I think the cover art alone on these books is worth the 99c!
I recommend you take a look at the website to see what other authors are being showcased and don’t forget to check out the Friday Final Flings for even more great discounts, while you are there.
It has been quite the week for me. First off was the 5 Stars review from Manic Readers for my latest release Emily’s Cowboy. Wow, talk about thrilled! On the same day I noticed the beautiful reviews I’d received on Goodreads and Amazon for various books in my League of Love series. I was floating around in a cloud of contented happiness. The thought did cross my mind that maybe I was an author. I cannot begin to explain the emotions I feel when I discover that not only are people reading my books but enjoying them. Thanks to every one of you for taking the time to write a review. But if that wasn’t enough, ARRA featured Caitlin’s Hero in their book of the day. What an honour. That night Total-E-Bound sent me an email to let me know I was being promoted as the Author of the Week – and yes I did stare at the gorgeous graphics a time or twenty! I finished the week by catching a movie with my baby boy. We both loved Iron Man 3.
Be sure to check out this weeks On the Bench guest, this author is truly amazing and has published over one hundred erotic romancebooks.
I’ll leave you with an excerpt from Caitlin’s Hero.
She felt so soft against his rough, battered fingers, and he enjoyed the sensual feel of her skin. A picture of her—naked, hair splayed upon his pillow as he tasted her from the top of her pretty head to the tips of her toes—flashed into his mind, and his cock jerked again.
Brodie rubbed his hand over his head, raking his fingers through his close–cropped hair and massaging the back of his thick neck as he tried to get his thoughts under control, so he could actually speak words that made sense. All the time, he watched her gorgeous face for any sign of her wanting to flee.
Brodie finally spoke. “You are the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen. You have the voice of an angel and the body of a temptress.”
He stopped, licked his lips. Her gaze dropped to his mouth as her tongue poked out from between her sensual lips for just the briefest moment. Brodie knew he had to make it fast or he was going to come in his pants. That was something that had never happened before, and the thought did not appeal to him. What was it about this woman that affected him so deeply?
“Would you care to join me for dinner tomorrow night? You pick, I’ll pick… I don’t care as long as you say yes,” he finished breathlessly.
Brodie watched and waited for any sign of hope from her motionless face. Terror filled him like nothing he’d felt before. What if she said no? What if he was just being an old fool? He didn’t feel quite as confident of the outcome as he had a moment ago. Before he could think of another approach, she threw herself at him again. It was just as well he still had quick reflexes, or he might have dropped her as she flung her arms around his neck the way she had at the pool. She was placing sweet little kisses up and down his jawline—my God, the woman is hot. She was killing him.
He grabbed her thighs so he could get a better grip on her. He was not going to drop his angel, that was for sure. She weighed next to nothing, but her tight dress and the fact she couldn’t wrap her legs around him was making it difficult for him to keep hold of her. He moved the dress up and hitched her hard against him as he repositioned his hands on her legs. It was then he realised he felt skin—she wasn’t wearing any stockings.
“Oh, angel,” Brodie groaned.
He was just holding on. Any minute now he would lose control, throw her to the ground and ravage her like a caveman. He had never felt so needy. He ground his lips down upon hers until she opened for him and he sank his tongue fully into her mouth and made a thorough exploration. She was so warm and sweet, like toffee, and he could have kissed her this way for hours. She pressed her tongue against his, at first timidly, then becoming bolder.
He had to have this woman. Brodie stroked his thumbs up her inner thighs. His hands were completely under the hem of her dress, and he could feel the edge of her underwear. Holding her cute behind with one hand, he moved her so she could sit on the bonnet of his car and immediately his cock throbbed at the loss of contact.
Brodie cupped her mound with his free hand. It was emitting such heat, and her panties felt moist. She stilled. It was as if a bright light flashed before his eyes, and the fog in Brodie’s head cleared. He dragged his lips away from hers and gently lifted her from her perch and slid her down his aching body, brushing past his engorged and incredibly painful erection. He knew she felt it, but what could he do? It was all for her, because of her.
