Erotikos--ADULT excerpt

Available now at Amber Quill Press!

WARNING! This excerpt contains strong sexual language and content!

Wrapping his hands around her thighs, he lifted his head off the ground and sunk his tongue into her spread pussy. Candi gasped as he delved deep inside her, seemingly reaching all the way to her navel. She could hardly hold herself erect, let alone work on him while he was doing that.

“God! You have a marvelous tongue,” she moaned, rolling her pelvis forward to afford him a better reach.

“An ye ’ave a tasty fud, lass, made for eatin’.”

Candi shuddered at his profession. She’d never had a man tell her that her pussy tasted good. The eroticism of his words shook her to the core.

Trying to concentrate on the large cock gripped within her hand, she dipped her head forward, kissing the head. Then she pushed the silky smooth helmet through her lips, loving the downy feel of it against her tongue. Being careful not to scrape him with her teeth, she began to suck, carefully drawing him in and out.

Surius thrust his hips upward, forcing himself even further into her mouth. But his self-interest didn’t stunt his ministrations on her. On the contrary, the harder she worked him, the more intent he seemed upon driving her over the edge of all sanity.

Withdrawing his tongue from her cunt, he pressed it flat against her clit and licked up and down. A bolt of pleasure shot through Candi’s pelvis and her hips bucked forward of their own accord. She spread her legs a little more, pressing herself against his face.

With a delighted growl, Surius plunged two fingers into her quivering channel. His tongue worked the tiny head of her tingling bead in a quick up and down flick, while his digits fucked her pussy, pushing in and out until she thought she would scream with delight. Candi’s legs began to tremble.

“Help me, please,” he begged, his striking green eyes boring into hers before he collapsed to his knees.

Pulling her dress up to her shins, Mina squatted beside him. She grabbed him beneath the arm, helped him back to his feet, then led him into the cottage. After coaxing him onto the bed, she went to secure the door.

“How far behind are they?” she asked, sliding the iron lock into place.

Athan glanced at her, his expression quizzical. “How did you…”

His eyes narrowed a bit, then he grinned. “You know the game.”

He studied her a moment longer. “I don’t remember you. Have you played before?”

Mina shook her head. “No. But I’m not wigged out by paranormal stuff. You don’t frighten me.”

“Really?” he said with a cocked brow. “What makes you think you’re safe? I could just kill you and be done with it, drain you dry.”

Mina snorted. “According to the rules, all players must complete their tasks before they can return. If I don’t go back, no one else will ever play and you’ll be stuck here in this world with no one to fuck. How’s that for rationalization?” she declared, crossing her arms over her chest in bold defiance.

His gaze dropped to her breasts, which were propped upon her crossed arms like a couple of ripe melons. “Hmm…” he purred, taking no care to hide his interest. “Guess you got me. But first we must dispose of my hunter.”


A three way tie

Well, so far there's a 3-way tie on the paranormal character poll. Vampires, Lycans, and Ghosts are running neck to neck. I'm curious to see how the results fare over the next 6 days of voting.

It seemed only seconds after her thoughts went blank that she heard a man’s voice yelling in her head. At first she thought it was God, welcoming her through the gates. Then she realized the likelihood of her heathen-ass going to hell and knew it had to be someone else.

“Hey there, lass. Dinnae go oot on me yet. Ye were nae supposed to droon.”

His thick Scottish accent seeped into her waterlogged brain, sufficiently drawing her back from the brink of extinction. A mouth closed over hers and air filled her lungs. Then a heavy palm pressed on her chest.

An upheaval of water gurgled in her throat. Candi gasped and coughed in an effort to breathe. Inhaling a mouthful of expelled liquid, she began to choke.

“Careful noo, lassie. Cough it oot.”

He rolled her onto her side and patted her on the back as she continued to cough. Expelling the last of the water from her lungs, Candi finally took a deep breath. She had an overwhelming urge to vomit.

The acrid sensation of stale alcohol burned her throat as she emptied her stomach onto the soft grass. When she’d finished, she rolled onto her back, exhausted. It took a lot of energy to die.

Pain wracked her body. Her entire chest cavity felt bruised and beaten, as though she’d been pummeled. Her arms and legs trembled from exertion.

“There noo, ye gave me quite a scare. Most of ye swim to shore. When ye dinnae come, I got concerned. Thought maybe ye’d been eaten.”

Candi cracked one lid in an effort to see her savior. A shadowed visage hovered above her. The blazing sun overhead made it impossible to see his face.

“Thank you,” she murmured, her numb lips garbling the words. “For saving my life. Are you…Surius?”

“Aye. That’s what human folk call me. I ’ave many names.”


Erotikos--Meet Eyanosa

Renee moved her character forward two spaces. “‘Warriors and Rituals, a proud race are the Sioux. Select your card, the number is two.’”

She glanced first at Candi, then Mina. “You sure about this?”

“It’s a game, Renee. What could happen?” Mina crossed her arms over her chest with an annoyed huff.

“This is me, drinking,” Candi announced, reaching for the José.

Renee snatched the bottle first. “Okay, I give. No more drinking.”

She set the José on the floor, well out of everyone’s reach, then regarded her card. It still lay facedown on the board, waiting for her to pick it up. With a shaking hand, she placed the tip of her index finger on the card’s backside and slowly slid it toward her.

“Here goes.”

The room became uncomfortably quiet as Renee grasped the card by its edge and turned it over. Mina and Candi leaned forward, curiosity gleaming in their unwavering stares. Feeling as though she sealed some inexplicable fate, Renee read her adventure aloud.

“‘Eyanosa, a great Lakota Sioux warrior in South Dakota, has taken part in The Sun Dance ritual in hopes that an emissary of the Wakan Tanka will return to bring peace and prosperity to his people. Your appearance will comfort his heart, but he craves the warmth of your flesh to soothe his soul.’”

When she’d finished, Renee regarded her friends with nauseating unease. Her insides roiled with apprehension. Was that it?

Instinctively she sensed something was about to happen, but she had no clue as to what that might be. They were three half-drunk women playing a stupid board game that Mina had seduced out the hands of an old gypsy woman’s adolescent grandson. What could happen?


Erotikos Excerpt--PG

Mina opened the box and removed its contents: a game board, eight playing pieces, a deck of rectangular cards, and two die. After unfolding the board, she spread it out flat across the coffee table. Surprisingly, it comprised most of the table’s span, stretching to near each corner.

“Wow,” Renee exclaimed, stunned by the detailed artwork depicted transversely along the board’s sides.

Each displayed two settings of similar content or theme. The side nearest her seemed to follow a western premise. Half was illustrated with the inside of a teepee, while the other displayed what looked to be a brothel room.

Having little interest in cowboys, Renee disregarded the brawny gunslinger posed on the antique bed and considered the Indian setting instead. Having just recently studied several tribes in her anthropology class, she instantly recognized the markings and décor as being Sioux, a fierce clan with skilled warriors and enchanting traditions. Her gaze was drawn to the center.

She felt an instant surge of lust for the male character sprawled on his back atop a pile of animal furs. With his hands tucked behind his head, hips slightly cocked, and right knee bent, he appeared to be completely at ease. Renee traced her fingers along the palpable lean muscle in his arms and legs, wishing it were more than just cleverly molded metal she touched.

His glossy black hair glistened with a near blue sheen in the flickering glow of a small fire strategically placed in his shelter’s center. For the briefest of moments, she could have sworn she felt heat lick her fingertips.

It’s been a long time since Renee and her two friends have gotten together for a girl’s night in. What could possibly be more fun than drinking margaritas, gossiping about their recent bed-partners, and playing drunken rounds of Twister until they all pass out? But when Mina shows up toting a bottle of José Cuervo Gold in one arm, and a strange game named Erotikos in the other, the girls’ evening is about to get a lot more interesting.

Even before they remove the contents, Renee senses something amiss. This is no ordinary game. Erotikos promises pleasures galore and adventures filled with sexual delight. But how can a cardboard pastime with its small stack of cards, two oddly marked die, and eight pewter men accomplish all this?

After reading the instructions, the girls select their character pieces—an Indian, a selkie, and a vampire. Three men of varying backgrounds, but all sexy as sin and tantillizing to the eye. With a roll of the dice, the game begins, and the three women soon find themselves pulled into a place where their wildest fantasies come to life...

Blogging Today

Goodmorning! Hope everyone is having a better day than I am. We’ve got rain, rain, and more rain. My kids are on a 2-hour delay from school. Two hours!!! I’ve never heard of such! When I was in school, we were lucky to get out for snow. It had to be something like a foot deep. Now, just the mention of snow, and the kids are let out of school. Ah well, I can’t complain. My oldest two are able to get themselves off to the bus without me. My third one is at the sitter’s, so she’ll get him there on time. And the fourth little guy isn’t in school yet. Wish I could have slept and extra 2 hours! Oh to be a kid again.

First off this morning I wanted to get the contest business out of the way. It’s fairly easy. All you have to do is post a comment on any of my excerpts/book covers. What I’m giving away is a hand made necklace and bracelet set with ivory, gold, and cranberry beads. It’s really pretty, if I do say so myself. ; )

I’ll be posting off and on all day so there’ll be plenty of time to enter. I’ll also hold off until tomorrow morning to select the winner so there’s no rush. Sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever get’s your insides all warm and fuzzy and let me introduce you to Eyanosa, Surius, and Athan.
