Weekend Dirty Dozen

Two highlights this week. One of my gal pal’s, writing buddy from Florida just signed with a fantastic agent. I am so happy for her. I now have two friends signed with this “dream” agent that I have twitter stalked for a long time.

Also, went to midnight release of Breaking Dawn Part 1. It was pretty amazing. I pause, I muse, Humm I need some pretty amazing lines today for my weekend dirty dozen.

This week I am picking 12 more lines from my WIP that will be part of the “Tempting Cupid” anthology. Follow all the authors participating in the Weekend Dirty Dozen by following the link to the main website. There are some great free reads out there.

Raynia’s Magic
Blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant on an impulse buy. The clerk assures her the magic is in the woman, not the necklace that seems to call to her. She’s left an adulterous x-husband and settled into law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners Chase Thompson and Peter Thornton.

Her “bisexual” law partners come out of the closet and surprise her, celebrating the anniversary of her joining the practice with the seduction of her life. She runs from the intensity of her sensuous side and the fear of ruining their long friendship and business partnership.

She is preparing for the trial of her career with very little evidence for the defense. Something isn’t right about the scene of the accident. Her client’s brother makes an attempt on her life, to cover up her discovery that he was the drunk driver who committed the hit and run, not his brother.

The set up is: Raynia just returned from her lunch and the purchase of an interesting amethyst quartz necklace. Chase came into Peter’s office where they both watched her walk through the reception area. Their close proximity to her on a daily has them both hard and hungry for a deeper relationship. We are in Peter’s POV but this snippet is banter between them. Pulling it out of context is a fun challenge.

Chase starts off the conversation:

“You’re the one who had the bright idea to let her think we’re gay.”

“You know she was a wreck after her husband left her. She needed a place to stay where she felt safe. I didn’t exactly know how to broach the conversation of Chase and I are bi-sexual and have wanted to jump your bones since we were freshmen together. Chalk it up to, our timing sucks.”

Chase pushed away from the doorframe and crossed the room to lean over Peter’s chair. He punctuated his words with forefinger jabs. “Yes, well our little butterfly is emerging and if we don’t do something soon another bee is going to be dipping into that honey.”

Peter slapped Chase’s hand away. “Didn’t anyone ever brief you on the concept of metaphors and explain–what you do with them should be grounds for incarceration.”

Chase, shot his partner a quick, fuck-you gesture and grinned. “I manage to communicate.”

blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant on an impulse buy. The clerk assures her the magic is in the woman, not the necklace that seems to call to her. She’s left an adulterous (now) x-husband and settled into law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners Chase Thompson and Peter Thornton.

Her bisexual law partners come out of the closet and surprise her, celebrating the anniversary of her joining the practice with the seduction of her life.

Weekend Dirty Dozen

“It feels good,” slipped out on a sigh.

Her fingers slid along the purple slice of quartz, cut to reveal the flame of the gemstone and polished to a smooth cool sheen.

The bauble hung from a brass rope chain. A petite metal feather and a gemstone bead nestled next to the oval stone, caressing it like lovers, three lovers.

Raynia wasn’t sure if she and the clerk were talking about the stone at all.
“A beautiful woman such as you may find happiness being receptive to the pleasures life has to offer.”

She let his comment pass. She hadn’t thought of herself as beautiful in a very long time. A slow smile, so much like Peter’s devilish grin, framed his perfect teeth. She blinked to clear her eyes. Peter’s smile, Chase’s hair color, the memories shot a tingle of sensation straight to her core.

If the clerk only knew, her frustration at resisting the pleasures her two very sexy law partners might provide.

Weekend Dirty Dozen – X Rated – M/M Historical Romance

This week’s selection for the Weekend Dirty Dozen’s second week is chosen from “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” A novellette M/M erotic romance story that published in “Once Upon A Twisted Tale” Rebel Ink Press, released October 17, 2011

I am participating in The Weekend Dirty Dozen, follow that hot link to see other authors participating. Check out the Weekend Dirty Dozen FaceBook Page at this link.

Setup: Nathaniel Hawkins takes the unconscious Ike Sandhill back to his estate to help him recover from being knocked from his galloping horse. Ike wakes while Nathaniel is bathing him and has an unexpected erotic response to Nathaniel’s attention.

12 line excerpt:

“Master Hawkins. Please forgive me. I’m not quite thinking clearly. I must have fallen from my horse.”

What would the gentleman think of Ike’s hard on, so inappropriate given the circumstances?

The hand stopped moving and Ike thought he might have felt it quiver. He started grasping at the sheets searching vainly for his clothes.

Ike babbled to ease his bewildered mind, fearing he might say something to regret once he found his senses. A confession of a ghoulish specter that’d chased him seemed somewhat unbelievable.

“I am quite sorry to have been a bother.”

Nathaniel’s hand closed around the base of Ike’s shaft in a firm determined grip and Ike’s response was instinctual. Groaning, he arched ever so slightly, thrusting with a hiss of need into the grip.

“The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp”

Blurb:

“The Galloping Ghoul rides each full moon, exacting revenge by frightening those who tormented his past. By day, he is one of the town people, Nathaniel Hawkins, an affluent entrepreneur. He identifies with Ike Sandhill, a government surveyor, and wants to protect him from the same thugs who drove Nathaniel to revenge. Ike goes to the extreme to prove to everyone how straight laced he is. He pursues Misty VonMix with the intention of marriage. Nathaniel doesn’t know how to confess his desire without driving Ike away. He comes up with a plan of seduction. Before the night is over Ike discovers things about himself he always knew, yet denied.”

Experience a tantalizing set of stories where fairy tales take on an unexpected twist and journey to a place where real love isn’t defined in terms of a cookie cutter princess. After all, happily-ever-after isn’t the staple of a charmed life…”

Weekend Dirty Dozen – Week 1 – PG-13 Rated Language

This week’s selection for the Weekend Dirty Dozen’s inaugural week is chosen from “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” A novellette M/M erotic romance story that published in “Once Upon A Twisted Tale” Rebel Ink Press, released October 17, 2011

Setup: Ike Sandhill’s horse bolted in terror. Nathaniel Hawkins in trying to save him, knocked Ike from his horse and fears he’s nearly killed him with his rescue effort.
12 line excerpt:

“Hell’s bells, what a goat fuck. Augustus stood patiently while Nathaniel hoisted Ike’s lanky frame up into the saddle and mounted behind to support his unconscious burden. The flight brought them to the borders of Nathaniel’s estate.

“Time to go home, Augustus.”

Nathaniel’s pulse pounded at the proximity of Ike in the saddle, his head resting on Nathaniel’s shoulder. How badly he wanted to brush the wayward lock of golden hair back from the man’s brow. No more hiding. Before the night was over, Nathaniel would be sure Ike Sandhill knew his full intentions. He couldn’t go on in this limbo half-life watching from afar. By dawn, they’d both be changed men. He prayed he could convince Ike to take what he had to offer, to take a chance, to take something, anything from him.
****
Ike roused with awareness that he was the center of some commotion.”
