#SexySnippets Outcast by Kiru Taye #PNR

snippets buttonWelcome back to Sexy Snippets hosted by The Nuthouse Scribblers. It’s an opportunity for writers to share 7 sentences from their published or work on progress.

As Outcast is due to be released on Nov 1, I thought I’d share a snippet from it. In this scene, Ugo has just used her powers on Ebube and she’s feeling the after effects. I hope you enjoy it.

~~~

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00066]Her eyes sparkled; emeralds blazing with the fiery warmth of the noon sunshine. She nodded and a dark shadow dimmed her smile. His chest tightened.  For a moment, Ebube found it difficult to breathe.

“Did I hurt you?” his voice croaked as he forced the words. He’d only known Ugo a short while. Yet, one certainty stood above others—he never wanted to be a cause of discomfort to her.

~~~

Leave me a comment. I love to read them. Stop by and read the other sexy snippets this week. This week I have 2 sexy snippets as I have 2 books out within a few days of each other. So please stop by Passion Shields to read a snippet from my new release, Secrets.

Have a fabulous Sunday!

The Worst Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas!

Sexy or Not? I’ve been amazed by the assortment of Halloween costumes that attempt to be sexy but fail miserably. Some are amusing. Others are just yucky.PUBLISHED by catsmob.com

Here are some of the worst sexy Halloween costume ideas I’ve ever seen:

Sexy Sesame Street Character

Sexy Ernie and Bert. Really? For an adult woman? You’re kidding, right? Oh no, it’s real. Sesame Street characters are not sexy. At all. And Sexy Elmo? That’s scary. And the scariest part is that there are at least 7 different versions of them that I’ve seen. Wow.

Worst_Tigger_jpg

Sexy Sort-of-Tigger

How about a man attempting to be sexy wearing nothing but a little kid’s hooded Tigger costume and Spiderman undies? Oh, bother. Maybe brave, but not sexy. At least he’s got a decent body.

sexytinman

 

 

Sexy Tin Man

Another strange choice for a woman’s costume. As the author of the War and Pizza blog noted, “No heart, no sex organs, needs lubing up to function.” Doesn’t sound too enticing. This model might look good in it, but the theme isn’t helping her any.

 

Giant Private Parts

How about a rubber mask of a guy’s package? Um, no. Just no. Nothing sexy about it. Same with the female parts. So nudity is usually sexy. But that ain’t nudity. And that ain’t sexy.

 

sexybananaSexyCornSexy Fruits and Vegetables

Sexy watermelon or sexy corn? Not terrible. Not cringe-worthy. But not sexy either. Definitely too corny for me. (Sorry, can’t resist a good pun. Or an awful one!)

Now the sexy banana has a certain appeal… 😉

In that War and Pizza blog post, the author also commented, “there are plenty of ways to dress sexy for those gals who wish to do so… But this fascination with taking non-sexy characters and sexing them up? Is at best disturbing and at worst a sign of the imminent decline of civilization as we know it.”

Hmmm. So maybe this another sign of impending zombie apocalypse. Now there’s an idea for a costume. A sexy zombie. Hey, I thought of it first!

Top 5 Romantic Movies Adapted From Books

With the recent fuss over Charlie Hunnam quitting the move adaption of 50 Shades of Grey, I’ve been thinking about movie adaptions of books.

Today, I thought I’d share my top five romantic movies based on books.

the princess bride poster1. The Princess Bride: A classic fairy tale with swordplay, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, giants and a pirate. This is a lovely fantasy adventure romantic comedy suitable for the whole family.

2. Out of Sight: This is a romantic crime drama about a career bank robber who breaks out of jail and falls in love with the US Marshall he kidnaps. Well, this movie has George Clooney in it. Need I say more? Jennifer Lopez isn’t half bad either.

3. Romancing The Stone: This action adventure romance is about a romance writer who goes to Colombia to ransom her kidnapped sister, only to get in a little over her head. Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner are great in this as is the brilliant Danny DeVito.

Nine and half weeks poster4. Nine 1/2 Weeks: An erotic story about a woman, the assistant of an art gallery, who gets involved in an impersonal affair with a man. She barely knows about his life, only about the sex games they play, so the relationship begins to get complicated. We get to see a lovely Kim Basinger and an even handsome Mickey Rourke before the disaster of plastic surgery.

5. The English Patient: At the close of WWII, a young nurse tends to a badly-burned plane crash victim. His past is shown in flashbacks, revealing an involvement in a fateful love affair.

So what are your favourite movies that were adapted from books? Leave me a comment. I love to read them. Have a great week. Kiru xx

#SexySnippets – Power Play

It’s time again for Sexy Snippets! Here are another seven sentences from “Power Play,” a story abPower Play coverout sensual bondage:

     “Then it’s settled.”
He grinned and his eyes gleamed wickedly. “If you say so. That is your call. Everything else, however, is my call.”
She had ended up a few feet away from him, but he closed the distance immediately. “Everything.”

 

 

“Power Play”

“A seductive brat tempts a sexy artist to risk his one shot at partnership for a fling with her. But when he takes control, who will come out on top?”

When I wrote this, I wondered what kind of woman could seduce a man to risk his hard-won career to be with her. What if there was the danger of them being discovered any minute? I thought it would be fun to see how he’d plan his payback. What would he do if he had complete control over her for a night?

Erotic Goes Old School

Today we welcome Kate Deveaux, talking about her sexy story “Academy of Love.” And there’s a contest at the end for one lucky reader to win a copy!

Readers often ask how I got the idea for Academy of Love, an erotic romance set in an all girls’ boarding school. Well, I could just say experience and that would be 100% correct, but it’s more than that…

We all know the adage: Write what you know.

For me, boarding school life is oh so familiar (and no, I’m not going to tell you which boarding school I went to!). If I did, I am quite sure the school would be over run with women looking for drop dead sexy Lawrence. Enrollment would go way up and attendance way, way down…But I digress.

Academy of Love_cover artAcademy of Love is the scorching tale of lovers reunited when Cassianna Baxter returns to her alma mater, Lewiston School for Girls. This time not as a student — but as deputy head mistress. The daily routine of the prim and proper boarding school is contrasted against the wild erotic passions of the long lost lovers and rules-just-begging-to-be broken uptight setting of the boarding school.

But it’s more than just the school setting that fires up Academy of Love and keeps the lovers galloping along, it’s also the majestic landscape of Hunt Country Virginia — so idyllic and pure. Unlike the passions of Cassianna and Lawrence….

The characters bring the setting and story to life. I hope we can all sympathize with the wearing-his-heart-on-his-sleeve hero Lawrence, when he is reunited with his long lost (but still buttoned-up) Cassianna. Passions flare and the misunderstandings of the past come back to haunt these lovers within the setting of boarding school life.

Secondary characters layer the story. Who among of us hasn’t met a Monique along the way? The conspiring vixen who makes Cassianna green with jealousy. And then there is Millie, darling Millie, the fairy godmother so to speak for Cassianna along with Mrs. Hetherington, the straight-laced headmistress, who is stern, but also burned by past loves. Then there is Cassianna’s ex-boyfriend, Richard, whom she was sure she’d left behind in Italy.

My things are getting very busy at this boarding school….

Lawrence watched her as she left the dance floor, he was rather getting used to watching her walking away. He didn’t mind the view, but he knew this time was different. She would be his as long as he didn’t frighten her off first. Feeling his growing need straining against his jeans, he followed her request and walked slowly away, and then to her cottage.

The moonlight streamed across her porch and lit a sliver of light across the threshold to the cottage as he stopped and took a deep steadying breath. The only thing separating him from what he wanted more than anything was her front door. Barely able to calm the pounding in his chest he took the porch steps two a time and placed his hand on the screen door. It squeaked as he opened it and then the wood door next.

“In here,” Cassianna whispered to him from the darkness, “and shut the door behind you, I don’t want anyone to see you here.”

“Oh, Cassie,” he said, seeing her silhouetted against the fireplace in the darkened living room.

He couldn’t wait to get her out of those jeans. Unable to contain his emotions another moment, he moved to her side in a split second, gathered her up in his arms, his mouth finding hers and their urgent passions meeting. He’d waited too long for this and now he was finally going to have her.

His mouth was hungry as his tongue found hers and kissed her deeply. He pressed his body hard against her; he wanted to feel all of her touching him as his lips explored her luscious mouth making his cock hard with want. His body tensed under her nimble hands as she ran them along his shoulders and across his back, as he roamed her curves, remembering every part of her body as if it were yesterday.

Breathing heavily, they both stopped and looked at each other. “I want to remember this,” he said, as he undid her scarf, throwing it carelessly over his shoulder and then turned his gaze to her shirt buttons. Slowly, one, by agonizing one, he undid each button. Her body quivered with excitement as his fingers grazed her nipples but only teasing her by passing over them as her shirt slipped off easily and he continued his caresses lower. He knelt slowly down in front of her.

Wicked Games by Samanthe Beck

Please give a warm welcome to our guest Samanthe Beck…

Thanks, Sexy Romance Stories, for having me as a guest today! I’m thrilled to be here.Lovers Unmasked

I’m also thrilled to announce my novella, “Wicked Games” released this week as part of a Halloween anthology called “Lovers Unmasked” from Entangled’s super-sexy Brazen line. One of the best aspects of contributing to the anthology, (besides sharing pages with amazing authors like NYT/USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert, USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn, and my Brazen debut sister Tessa Bailey), was the chance to write a story that takes place at a Halloween party. Gotta love characters in costume! Such a ripe environment for mistaken identities, hidden agendas, and some very wicked games. 😉

Valentine’s Day may have a lock on most romantic holiday, but I think Halloween wins, hands down, for sexiest. It’s all about the costumes. What other day of the year can you dress up as a French maid, or a nurse, or a hooker, or Miley Cyrus in a vinyl bikini, (unless you’re Miley Cyrus, in which case the answer is EVERYday), and hunt down the lifeguard, caveman, cowboy or Jedi Knight of your dreams?

When it came to outfitting my heroine, Stacy, and her twin sister, Kylie, in the perfect costumes, I toyed around with several twins-y ideas, but finally decided to let them go against type. Stacy, the “naughty” twin, dresses as a not-so-innocent angel, and Kylie, the “good” twin, becomes a spandex-clad she-devil. Pretty sexy, huh?

How about you? What’s the sexiest Halloween costume you’ve dared to don? And are you topping it this year?! Post a comment below and let me know. One lucky commenter will win a Nook or Kindle version of “Lovers Unmasked”! But if you can’t wait three days to find out if you’ve won, you can find “Lovers Unmasked” on:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

iBooks

KOBO

Here’s an excerpt of “Wicked Games” to put you in the mood…

Stacy guided Ian to a chair and gestured for him to sit. “Ever had a private dance before?”

“Never.”

“Sit back, Mystery Man. You’re in for a treat.” She reached behind him for the sound system’s remote, and programmed what she liked to call the “soft-core playlist.” Unobtrusive, sexy music streamed from hidden speakers, further muffling the noise from the party.

“Any rules I should know about?”

“Normally yes, but not tonight.” She stepped up until she stood over his lap, with her hands on his broad shoulders and her breasts close to his masked face. “Tonight there are no holds barred. Nothing off-limits. Think you can handle it?”

Trap set. Ian never backed down.

“Don’t you worry, Angel. I can handle whatever you throw my way.” He reached around, under her skirt, and palmed her bare cheeks, left vulnerable by her thong. “Quick hands, remember?”

She remembered, and forced herself to hold back a shiver. His voice held a note of something she couldn’t readily identify—challenge, maybe. Like he wanted to push her and see how far she’d go. She rotated her hips slowly, giving his hands a nice, thorough tour of the hills and gully they’d laid claim to. Rough palms slid all over her smooth, sensitive skin. Her nerve endings sat up and whimpered for more.

She lowered her arms and shrugged out of her wings.

“A fallen angel,” he murmured and traced his fingers along the front of her dress.

Her nipples contracted again, almost painfully tight this time. She imagined the feel of the knit ski mask rubbing against her breast as his tongue teased the hard, hypersensitive point. She bit back a moan. “I’m no angel.”
