The First: Book 1, Eden's Hell
In the beginning… God created man and called him Adam, a fine specimen replicated in his own image. He then created woman to ease Adam’s loneliness and named her Lillith. Unfortunately, God realized his mistake too late in giving woman free will, for she would rule her domain—not man. When Lillith left Adam, God created another for his first-born son, and gave her the name Eve and a kingdom called Eden, but by then it was too late, for he’d unleashed Hell into the world of man.

An Excerpt:
“Make love to me.”
Addison jerked back, stunned. Tears shimmered off her flawless cheeks, her crystal eyes darkened by smudged makeup. She’d lowered the mind barrier and forced her thoughts into his head with such intensity and ease it was if she’d done it forever. Addison protected his thoughts with a tenaciousness unlike any other vampire, and he did so to protect himself from Satrina, but Eva breached his barriers so easily.
“If you win…I mean, when you win, you can feed from me if you want. I’ll be your p-p-et.”
Disgusted, he jumped to his feet. “Never!” How could he tell her now? She was condemned either way.
Eva looked up, her mouth trembling. “Then take me back to Satrina. I-I’ll do whatever she wants. Please, Addison. I can’t let you go through this. I’m not worth it. If this is our last night together…”
He stared in disbelief and reacted before thinking. He picked her up, cradling her like a child in his arms and leaned so near their lips almost touched. “She will never have you, Eva.”
“Will you, Addison?” She lowered her gaze.
He lifted her chin with his forefinger. “I would make love to you for all eternity, but tonight, I will make it feel like forever.”

Her hot breath caressed his face as he stared into eyes still glistening with tears. He had envisioned Eva in his arms a dozen different ways, but not like this, not weeping. Satrina had ruined their entire evening, but she would not destroy what he desired most. Her reign had to end.

He flew them down to his chamber and laid Eva across the blankets on the stone bed. Standing at the edge, Addison loomed over her, taking in every breathtaking detail.

“I want to see your face.”
In his haste, he’d forgotten she couldn’t see in the dark, but earlier he had laden the chamber with hundreds of candles. He willed one of the waxy pillars by the stairs to flare and continued until candlelight drenched the room with flickering shadows that danced across her face. He stared, awed by the aura, the very essence that surrounded her body. “You are so beautiful, Eva. Like heaven used to be.”

She studied him as fresh tears trickled down her cheeks. Then he offered himself to her in a way he’d never done to anyone before. Fangs slipped over his lower lip and his face morphed into the beast residing in his soul. She had to know the true monster he was. To his disbelief, she reached up and ran her fingers through his hair before gripping the back of his neck and bringing his face closer.

He faltered at first, but then brushed her mouth with a hesitant kiss. His world tilted. Not wanting to frighten her further, he retracted his canines and gently placed his lips over hers, savoring the taste of her skin, and for the first time in centuries, not for the want of her blood. The tip of his tongue flicked over her lips, and her excited gasp heightened his arousal. She tasted like she smelled, sweet and innocent. Every nerve in his body tingled. She hadn’t even touched him yet, and he could barely contain himself. He nipped her bottom lip. “Be mine, Eva—only mine.” He groaned as he crushed his mouth to hers not realizing that he swore he would never say those words again.

“I’ve been yours since I woke up on your sofa two nights ago.” Light burst through his being like a birthing galaxy. She loved him! A vampire, a bringer of death…a demon. Fire kindled his soul, and he clung to her, desperate that she would somehow vanish and he’d wake from this fairytale to find it had all been an illusion.

“Make love to me, Addison. Please.”

The length of him throbbed inside his pants and a dampened spot reminded him just how uncomfortable his trousers felt. He had to slow their pace. Sunset was still several hours away, and he wanted this night to last as long as possible. He reluctantly pulled away from the sweetness of her lips. “Would you do something for me?”

She nodded and seductively sucked in the corner of her lower lip.
“Stand and undress for me. I want to remember you for all eternity.”
She slipped out from under him without a moment’s hesitation. Standing a few feet from the granite slab, she lifted her arms and unhooked the halter at the neck. The dress fell like a gossamer cloud to her feet. He took in beauty that surpassed any woman he’d ever bedded, including Satrina. The aura surrounding Eva pulsed with a life all its own, a halo he’d seen once before. His gaze followed the delicate curves of hips accentuated by the ghostly glow around her.
She leaned her head back and trailed her fingers over both shoulders before moving toward breasts that were perfect in every way.
He fumbled with his tie with one hand while the other frantically attempted the buttons on his shirt. Her voice ricocheted in his mind. “Watch me.”

He stopped, awestruck, as her fingertips moved lower and circled her delicate nipples. The dark skin puckered, and he licked his suddenly dry lips.

“Tell me what you want, Addison.”
“You, Eva. Just you.”

She closed her eyes before stepping away from the dress. Her heartbeat thrummed through his veins as if it were his own.
Addison shifted closer to the edge of the bed, his pants straining against his rigid hard on. “Come here.” His usual confident tone teetered. He couldn’t ever remember feeling this nervous before. Fucking was something he was good at, very good at, but making love? Both times he’d done so had been disastrous. Would this union end in tragic heartache, too?
Eva took his hand and placed it just below her left breast. With his fingers a mere breath away from her skin, her body heat emanated into his palm and scorched down his arm to build and explode inside. He watched goosebumps rise along her flesh as she moved his hand to the flat of her stomach, still not allowing him to actually touch her. Eva moaned, low and sensually. Her breath heaved in quick gasps as she released his hand and grasped his shoulders, her nails digging deep into the bone.

Review: From Hel With Love, XIII Hour Series by Blue Remy


Hel hath no fury like her Raven scorned.

Fallen Valkyrie Legionnaire, Raven Aquilus, has always known she was an outcast to her kind. Stuck in New Orleans as the Protectress of the Nine Gates of the Underworld, she lives as close to the edge as her family will allow. One fateful night would change it all—someone ritualistically slaughtered a guardian in one of her Gates, leaving Raven lying in a pool of blood. Ordered to find the killer before she dies along with her precious guardians, Raven is placed in a race against time to stop an ancient war from reigniting between the Valkyries and the Fae. 

FBI Paranormal Agent Duncan O’Brien is brought in to investigate the brutal murders, but he is completely blind to the fact that he has landed in a fallen Valkyrie’s domain. Time is running out and Raven must enlist Duncan and his team to help discover the killer before she loses another one of her guardians. 

Duncan is the epitome of control, but even he is not immune to Raven’s beauty and magnetism. Raven is an enigma wrapped up in the body of lust, and shocked to find herself attracted to a human. Both must fight their emotions to work together, before Raven faces losing everything from her life - to a new found love, in order to save the Underworld from being ruled by a jealous half breed. 

Welcome the XIII Hour™ series. Betrayal, Lust, Love, Murder, Jealousy and Revenge. The faery-tales that your mother never told you about just came true.

Blue Remy has created an amazing world based in legend, mythology and fantasy interwoven with bits of 'just enough reality' to make you wish, if not believe, her characters are real. This is exactly what a fantasy should be. Blue has nailed it! 

From the onset, I became completely obsessed with Raven. Her kick-ass bravado combined with looks that kill will send shockwaves through any reader. Agent O'Brien and his naivety in the beginning, brings a certain balance to this fantastic environment. Humans and Valkyrie working together becomes an incredible race against time, against all reality, against everything you've ever been told about the Underworld. There are times you won't be able to believe your eyes or your heart and this story will keep you involved right up to the very end.  

I don't like comparing "author to author", but this author's work reminds me of one of my favorite author's work. From Hel With Love is written in a fast-paced, well-flowing manner with a plot that doesn't lag and never disappoints. The characters throughout this story climb into your mind and won't let you go. With gut-wrenching scenes laden with emotion and action, And the ending? It left me speechless! 

Blue has quickly become one of my favorites. She sucked me in and now I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I sit here breathless with anticipation!

Expect great things from this author...really great things!

Character Interview: Selena Barnes of Wicked By Nature, A Paranormal-Erotic Romance

Here we are on the eve of our release and I've been fortunate enough to get Selena Barnes to speak with me one more time. After three years of yelling, screaming and demanding my attention, she's been very quiet lately and I can only assume her demons have left her alone...for now.  I wanted to know how she was feeling about her story finally getting out and she was as she always has been...very straight-forward about everything. Here's a snippet from that interview:

Hi Selena. Thank you for agreeing to speak with me again. I haven't heard from you in awhile and I have to admit I've been a bit worried. How have you been?

Selena: Hi. I've been great actually. I'm very excited and a bit anxious. I'm sure you understand.

I certainly do. My stomach has been in knots. I hope you're happy with the way the story turned out.

Selena: Of course I am. I never thought this day would get here. I've been pacing the floors for what feels like eternity. I've been driving my husband insane. (Laughter). I can't thank you enough for being so patient with me. I know I can be quite the handful. I warned my husband when I met him. I said: "You have no idea what you're in for with me." He simply laughed it off and replied: "Don't worry, Kitten. I have plenty of ways to keep you in line." And you know what? He most certainly does. (wink, wink)

Speaking of your husband, how is he? 

Selena: He's fantastic! So strong and hot and...

I, um, I meant how is he feeling about the book coming out? He wasn't around much during the writing process.

Selena: Ohhhh. He's great. He's also very excited. Of course, he's been very busy lately, but he's been a huge comfort to me. Reliving the things that have happened hasn't been easy. Luckily, I have friends like you and a great family to get me through.

You're very sweet. I'm glad I could help. So, can I assume your life has gone back to normal now?

Selena: Normal? (laughter) What is normal? If you mean boring, then, most certainly not. Life has been one big adventure. In fact, I have plenty of new things to tell you about. I figured you probably needed a break after the Hell I've put you through for three years, so we'll talk about all of the new stuff soon.

Well, it has been an adventure so far, but I cannot wait to hear what you've been up to.

Selena: All in due time. Let's wait until after the book comes out before I bombard you with more. 

Sounds good. Can you tell me anything?

Selena: Off the record I will. For now, I'd like you to share our excerpt with the readers. I had such a difficult time helping you with the decision. It was much harder than I had anticipated it would be. But how can we tell people about the book without giving away every secret? 

I think we did great. It shows some action without giving away too much. 

“Enjoying yourself, Cupcake?”

“Ah!” I tried to jump up, but to no avail. He had me pinned and the floor was too slippery for me to gain any footing. In front of me, mere inches from my face, Shawn stood in all of his demonic glory.
His forked tongue slithered out of his snarling lips and licked up the side of my face. I felt bile rise in my throat as he trailed his claws down the side of my neck. “Let go of me, asshole!”

“Shh. Now, now, is that any way to speak to your fiancĂ©?” He laughed. “We wouldn’t want to wake your familiar, now would we? I’d be forced to silence him.”

“You wouldn’t!”

“Really? You’ve already killed him once. That leaves eight more lives, correct? Believe me, I would enjoy watching him die over and over again. How you can love something as ugly as that walking fur-ball is beyond my comprehension.”

“Have you ever looked in a mirror? You’re a nasty beast!”

“A beast you fell in love with, no less, and I’ve never heard you complain before.” He appraised me with yellow, beady eyes as he tilted his head side to side. “I’ve always loved your tight little body. I’ll enjoy tearing into you. Now that you no longer smell like mutt, I bet you’ll taste divine.”

Ugh. He flicked his tongue out, wiggling it in front of my face and I wanted to rip it out of his scaly face. Rage was pulsing through me and I didn’t know whether to embrace it and let it fill me with power or tamp it down to keep me from getting into more trouble. What was I supposed to do? No matter how I struggled, I couldn’t escape his claws. With every movement, they dug into me deeper, angering me more and more.

“Let go of me, dammit!”

He pulled me to my feet and pinned me against the wall with one hairy thigh between my legs. I looked down and saw his hooves also had talon-like claws and my mind spun with fear as nausea filled me. I had never seen a demon this hideous and I’d certainly never fought one that large on my own. What the hell was I going to do?

“How nice of you to get us the Honeymoon Suite” he hissed. “But isn’t it a bit too soon? The wedding isn’t for a few weeks. Do you think your dear ole daddy will show up? Maybe he’ll even walk you down the aisle and hand you over to me? Roberta will even stand in as your maid of honor. Wouldn’t that be divine?” The demonic asshole had the nerve to wiggle his eyebrows as he pondered that plan.

“Fuck you and your troll-whore! There isn’t going to be any wedding! And what about my father? You killed him before you could even get to know him, remember?” I’d be damned before I’d let him know how much I knew about Samell, or Samuel, as he was known to most people.

My breath was ragged and shallow as he shoved his chest against mine. If he pressed any harder, I’d become one with the marble wall. The pain was insane but I wouldn’t let him know that. I knew he’d enjoy every suffering moment as he crushed me, breaking one rib at a time and as they drove into my organs one by one, and he’d count each heartbeat until my last.

“That ring says something entirely different. You’re mine,” he growled. “And you will be until I no longer have a use for you. As for your father, you killed him. Remember?” He mimicked and goaded, pushing me closer to the edge of losing it.

“Really? Roberta says you killed him, Shawn.”

“You’re lying. She would never betray me like that. Besides, Roberta is still in Germany. You know nothing!”

He had no idea I knew Samell was my father or that I’d spoken to Roberta. Which meant he also had no idea I knew I was part demon. I tucked that bit of information away for now and took the opportunity to slam my forehead against his. It hurt like hell, but it stunned him long enough for me to escape his grasp.
Just as I reached one of the shower door handles, it exploded outward. I fell hard, and my face bounced on the glass coated marble floor. I rolled over as he stomped his way out of the shower. “Uh-oh. Cupcake has a boo-boo. Let me kiss it and make it better.” He grabbed me by the hair without even leaning down. His arms were elongated and scaly on one side and covered in hair underneath. What the fuck?

I really should have studied up on demons last night. I was smack dab in the middle of a deep shit situation and I had no idea how to get out of it. My powers, good or evil were my only chance. There was no time to make a moral decision. It was live or die and if I died at his hands, he’d steal my powers before I could even blink.

He perched atop the marble steps of the tub and stood over me. “What do you want, Shawn? Why are you here wasting my time when you could be fucking your troll and making little ass-faced demon babies?”

He laughed a deep guttural cackle. “You know what I want. You’re mine. Did you think I would let you run off and shack up with Jacobs? You will never be with that mongrel and I will kill you myself if I have to, just to keep you away from him. I have a wonderful future planned for us, Selena. It’s about time you accepted that fact and started acting like a proper wife!”

Selena: Goddess! He is so sickening! Even now, thinking about him makes me want to vomit. Or bust shit. I've really come to enjoy getting my feelings about Shawn Richardson out of my system. Who knew bashing things could feel so great? 

I take it you still hate him? And Roberta? 

Selena: Hate is such a strong word. Oh. Who are we kidding? You know perfectly well how i feel about him and that ugly troll-bitch. They set out to take away everything that mattered to me. That's not easily forgotten. Neither are their lies.

But...they weren't the only people who lied to you, were they?

Selena: No. But...some people lie for deception and others lie to protect us. I've forgiven them all for lying. However, I'll never forget. I'll never feel as powerless as I did before. They can't break me again. 

Good. I'm so happy to hear you say that. You've come a long way, Selena.

Selena: With your help.

Well, I'm sure you've got some celebrating to do. So, I'll let you go. I do hope we can get together sometime soon.

Selena: Yes, we're headed into town. There's a party in our honor! I wish you could be there. But I understand you have PR stuff to handle. But if you finish early, please stop by. And if I don't see you tonight, you can count on us getting together for coffee soon. There's a new business in town and I'm sure you're going to love it.

Sounds great! I'll stop by if I can. Call me soon. And Selena, thank you again. Give my love to the family.

Selena:  Will do. Take care, Madison.

Well, I can't blame Selena for wanting to celebrate.  If I were twenty-five again, like she is, I'd be out partying, too. After all, this story, her story of betrayal and lies surrounded by wicked deeds happened to her. She has every right to enjoy the release of it. It weighed her down for so very long. 

Now, I'd like to share our cover with you. Wicked By Nature will be available for purchase on December 12, 2013 at Secret Cravings Publishing . You only have to wait a little while longer for the naughty goodness.  Thank you so much for stopping by. Please hop down a few posts and enter to win one of my other books and stop back here in a few days for another giveaway related to Wicked By Nature.

New Release: Brigid's Blessing, The Bigfoot Chronicles by Tawny Savage

Welcome Tawny Savage, author of Brigid's Blessing! I asked her to stop by my place as she makes her way through her tour. She's kindly answered some questions so that we can get to know her a little bit better. As always, Tawny knows how to make you smile. Please enjoy her interview and keep reading to find out more about her debut release Brigid's Blessing.

I'd like to know what made you decide to write your book?

Tawny:  Honestly, I saw a post about crazy dinosaur erotica and I thought what the hell? I had several darker fantasy stories partially written and some basic outlines. Before I knew it, an entire world of the Forest People came to life.  Why not incorporate that with my favorite hot sex scenes? I get the best of both worlds then and have fun doing it.

Who are your favorite authors?

Tawny:  I read anything and everything from YA right on up to porn. It really depends on my mood what I’ll choose to read on my Kindles or what paperback I’ll grab off my shelves. Right now I’m reading George RR Martin. I love James Patterson, the Master Stephen King, Ann Rice, JK Rowling…so many!
I’m actually quite partial to one author, Bonnie Bliss. Her stuff is SMOKIN’. You don’t want to miss anything she writes. ;)

Who is your inspiration to write your own work? Can you tell us more about it?

Tawny:  I really don’t have a specific inspiration, but the authors at Sassy Vixen Publishing have been a big influence as well as many other authors I’ve met along the way. All of them have encouraged me to write what I want and not try to fit into a box.  That may sound funny coming from someone who is one of the alter egos of another author, but in order to write what “we” have in “our” head, we have to take on different personas ourselves.

What gets on your nerves the most when reading a book by another author?

Tawny:  The obvious stuff gets to me like bad formatting and editing. If I can push through that, find the story AND care about the characters, I’m hooked. If the author makes a character dumb as rocks or does something implausible for the story, I get ticked off and more than likely will stop reading. There are just too many other books I want to read so there’s no point in wasting my time on one that bores me.

Do you prefer HEA or HFN endings in the books you read?

Tawny:  It all depends on the book I guess. A dark fantasy won’t necessarily end happy for the characters but if it’s a romance, there better be at least a happy for now…and not a cliffhanger. I want to know right there and then the characters are content by the end of the book. It’s fine if they’ll need to continue their tale in another book or two, but don’t leave me guessing or leave the characters miserable at the end.

What about in yours? HEA or HFN?

Tawny:  Brigid’s Blessing is the first part of a trilogy. At the end of this one Bryanna appears to be in a somewhat happy zone. In the next part the readers will see a darker side to her soon to be ex hubby that will shock some readers and shock the hell out of Bryanna and her new lover Ashar…bigfoot.

What are your hobbies? (pick one or list a few)

Tawny:  I love to read of course. Cooking and baking are a favorite pastime to just keep me and the hubs happy or for a crowd. Knitting relaxes me and I wish I had more time to do it. I really miss it. I think I’ll just have to pick up the needles for a bit this holiday and give my mind a break from this crazy world of the Forest People and the humans who love and love to hate them. ;)

What are you most grateful for this holiday season?

Tawny:  I’m grateful for my husband and his unwavering support of all that I do. My friends and family mean the world to me and I’d do anything to keep them all safe and happy. They’d do it for me. Life can’t get much better than that!

Do you have a recipe you'd like to share? Or how are you spending this holiday season?

Tawny: I’m making that Harvey Wallbanger cake that my fellow Sassy Vixen author Tammy Dennings Maggy shared with us the other day. Here it is for those who missed it.

Grandpa Fila's Harvey Wallbanger Cake

Preheat oven to 350

1 package of yellow cake any brand
1 small package of instant vanilla pudding
1 cup salad oil 5 eggs
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup Galliano
3/4 cup unsweetened orange juice..whatever is your favorite. I used minute made or Treesweet

Grease and flour a bundt pan or an angel food pan

Mix all the ingredients until well blended and pour into your prepared pans. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

While the cake is still really warm/hot turn it over on to a larger plate. Cover the entire cake in powdered sugar...I mean use the whole box or bag and bury it. Seal the entire cake in plastic wrap tightly. Allow to cool completely overnight at room temperature.

When you cut it to serve, you remove the chunks of the powdered sugar that formed. the cake is really moist and you will LOVE IT!

Enjoy my friends!

Bryanna Stevens was slowly dying inside. The safe and consensual sexual relationship with her husband Travis had slowly deteriorated into one filled with torment and abuse. With nowhere to turn, she pleaded her case to the Goddess Brigid. She offered herself up to the gods to do as they see fit if they’d grant her one wish—to conceive a child of her own.
Hell bent on avenging the mutilation and death of his pregnant mate, Ashar risks everything to make the humans pay. Instead, he’s blindsided by his desire for the naked beauty stretched out over an altar, pleading for the gods to give her a child.  Before he can stop himself, he’s kneeling beside her. Could she be the one to save the Forest People and mend his broken heart or the one to destroy them all?

(WARNING: contains sex with creature known as Bigfoot)
She gathered up the materials she needed for the ritual and placed them near the back door. She removed all of her clothing and slipped into the long purple satin robe she’d made for just such an occasion. She pulled the hood up over her head as she made her way through the yard to the altar she’d set up in her garden.
She’d designed the structure to resemble a miniature Stonehenge with a stone altar in the center of the ring of smooth cut granite and slabs of redwood. At this point in the evening, the moon had risen to a height well above the tree line. Its light illuminated her garden shrine perfectly. She began her chanting spell welcoming her spirit guides and the Goddess Brigid. She asked for the courage to continue on her journey out of the marriage that had robbed her of her self-worth and her chance to have a child of her own. She dropped her robe at the base of the altar and lit the candles at the center while she pleaded her case. “Goddess, if it’s your will please grant me this last wish. I long to have a child of my very own, to teach the ways of the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone.”
 She spread the cloak out on the altar and lay on top of it as an offering. Tears flowed down her cheeks. “I offer all that I am, all that I will ever be if it’s your will for life to spring from me.” Her mind wouldn’t focus on the spell, but instead kept replaying her conversation with Sandy. Could the baby she’s carrying really be the child of a Bigfoot? Is it possible?
Before she knew it, she’d altered the prayer spell. “I offer my womb to help save his clan. Any child created from our union would be cherished and harmed by no man. This I pledge. If it’s your will, so mote it be.”

Ashar watched Bryanna from the thicket of trees closest to her ring of stones. He couldn’t look away. Her hair fell over her shoulders and down her back in thick curls. The moonlight caused her alabaster skin to glow in front of his eyes. He longed to touch and taste her. He closed his eyes and filled his lungs with her scent.

 Before he could stop himself, he was kneeling in front of the altar. He became drunk with need to take her as his own.

She gasped softly. Her eyes locked with his as he pulled her toward the edge of the stone. She didn’t resist or cry out but let him do as he wished.

He parted her legs enough to glide his fingers through her slick pussy lips and then to his mouth. His tongue darted out to taste her juices. He growled and moaned at once, nearly swooning with desire he’d never known before. He placed her legs over his shoulders as his tongue dove into her folds.

“Oh my god…” Her fingers entwined in his hair and pulled him closer to her. Her body opened to him and begged for more.

He moved up her smooth skin, licking, sucking and biting his way up to her tits. his hands barely fit around the heavy orbs. He nuzzled each in turn before taking one nipple in his mouth to suckle.

 She thrashed under him but didn’t try to push him away. Instead she arched her back and shoved move of her breast into his mouth. Her moans and sighs urged him to continue his exploration of her body.

He pushed himself up and watched her face closely as he eased his cock into her wetness. Afraid he’d hurt her if he let his need get the best of him, he forced himself to go as slowly as her body needed to adjust to fit him. No one but Taema had ever been able to take him in fully—until this human.

She lifted her legs so they curved around his waist. Her heels dug into his sides to pull him toward her. “Don’t fucking stop. Take me. Please…” Her lips met his with raw animalistic need. Her tongue slipped and slid over his, teasing and taunting with every movement. The other human had simply laid there while he satisfied himself as best he could. His cock was too large to fit inside that one but he’d made due. This one appeared to be made to fit him completely. The discovery opened the flood gates within him.

He didn’t need any more of an invitation. He supported his upper body with his forearms as his hips slammed into her, forcing his cock in all the way with each stroke.

 Her muscles clenched around his shaft, milking and squeezing him almost to the point of pain. She screamed and cried out for more. “Yes, yes, yes!” Her body shuddered and shook beneath him and still he pounded her cunt. Never before had he experienced such pleasure and pain at the same time. He wanted more and more of her with every plunge.

Her body clenched again before she grew quiet.

 Ashar roared as he released his seed inside her. He continued to thrust as cum shot out of him. He stood up, and rapidly pulled on his cock and balls to finish, shooting white cream all over her thighs, stomach and breasts.

He smoothed her hair from her sweat covered forehead, kissed her lips, and covered her with the edges of the robe. He ran his fingers through the beads of cum over her skin and smiled. “Mine.”

New Release: Banged In The Bayou by Rosie Peaks

Today I welcome newly published Indie author, Rosie Peaks. Rosie currently has two published stories available on Smashwords and Amazon. Let's get a look at the covers and blurbs before we get into her interview.

Blurb for Banged In The Bayou:

WARNING: This is a fictional story with a fictional monster. Contains hardcore, explicit and anal sex with a swamp monster, descriptive language, adult content and should not be read by anyone without a sense of humor or adventure. This is ONLY a work of my imagination and any similarity to anyone who has indeed had sex with a swamp monster is purely coincidental. No swamp monsters, crocodiles, raccoons, plants, snakes or spiders were harmed in the making of this book. The contents herein are FICTION and suitable for adults ONLY. Preferably adults who have wild imaginations.

I'm Rosie Peaks and this is my story. A first hand account of what happened one sultry day in Louisiana. On my way to the Gulf of Mexico for some sunbathing, my car broke down. Stranded in Cajun country, I was lost and alone. Desperate, dehydrated and lost in the deep swamps, I had no idea what or who awaited me beneath the Cyprus trees. This is the story of my encounter with the sexiest creature I've ever met.

Blurb for Stealing Her Husband:

J.B. isn't your typical man-stealing woman. She's never been pretty. Never been thin. But she didn't let that stop her. She found her mark and made sure she got him. Don never saw it coming. In fact, he still doesn't know J.B. manipulated the entire thing. This mastermind of a woman seduced him and they are still married today. 

J.B. tells us the story in her own words. Names and places, dates are changed to protect the identity of people involved. Any resemblance to those living or dead is purely coincidental. 

I know all of you are wondering about these books. First of all, who in their right mind would want to read about sex with a swamp monster? Second, an official story from a woman who is a self-professed man-stealer. Wow! I haven't had the chance to read either of these, but I've never been one to judge a book by it's cover...so, I'll be picking up my copies this evening.

Let' get to that interview. I have some really important things I need answers to.

Hi Rosie. Thank you so much for being here. 
Rosie: Thanks for having me. I'm sure you know there aren't many people willing to have me on their blog. Apparently monster sex and a story from an adulteress aren't exactly popular.
Well, I like to think I;m a pretty open minded person. You've seen what I write and read. Like I said, everyone deserves the chance to promote their work. But, I'm just dying to ask you: Are you seriously in love with a swamp monster? I find it very hard to believe.
Rosie: Of course I am. Haven't you ever wondered if those spooky tales you were told as a child are actually true? Haven't you ever questioned the 'norm'? (laughter) Well, I have always questioned everything. What I didn't expect to find...I found. Now, I spend my life searching for other so-called monsters. If one exists, they all must.
Of course I've wondered. But you must understand how difficult it is to believe that you actually had sex with a monster! I have to wonder if you were or are on some kind of drugs. 
Rosie: No. I'm not on nor have I ever been on drugs. Unless you consider sex a drug. In that case, I'm always high.
Alright then. Have you had any other um...experiences with monsters? 
Rosie: You'll have to wait for the nest book.
You have to know that people are never going to believe this story. I mean, of course it makes great fiction but...
Rosie: It is a great story, isn't it? It is up to you and the readers as to whether they believe it or not. I know it happened. I dream about it twenty-four-seven. Daydreams, fantasies, wet-dreams all night. He is always on my mind. Once you experienced double-penetration with the most exquisite cocks in the world, it's sort of hard to forget. Not that I'd want to.
Well, I have to admit that I am intrigued and truly cannot wait to hear about your other exploits. Now, about your other book, are you a friend of the woman who wrote to you with her story? Does this 'J.B.' really exist?
Rosie: (laughter) Of course she does. My books are truth. We all know truth is most times stranger than fiction. I've proven that. The funny thing is that most people will not believe absolute truth. They'd rather believe in fiction. Luckily, my life, my associates and my escapades seem like fiction and I feel many people will indeed believe them. Look around. How many paranormal investigation teams are there in the world? How many people are out there right now searching for the ever elusive 'Bigfoot'? How many people out there have cheated on someone and how many would just love to gloat about their conquests? I just happen to have a friend who has gotten everything she's ever wanted. J.B. couldn't wait for me to share her story and I was only too happy to oblige.
You do realize that most publishers won't even allow stories of adultery, don't you?
Rosie: Of course. That's why I self-pub my work. Sure, the covers aren't the greatest, but what's inside of every book? Reality. Truth. The unbelievable. Many people understand that the cover doesn't really matter. It's what is inside that is important. Take Stealing Her Husband for example: I chose that cover because she closely resembles my friend, who is in fact pretty. But everyone expects thin, sultry women to be on the covers. I try to keep mine closer to reality. Banged In The Bayou...that cover model is somewhat a close resemblance to what I look like. But, not exact.
So many readers have written to me and they are pissed. "How dare that trashy woman write about destroying a family!" Or "You're a disgusting and vile excuse for a woman! How could you have sex with such a disgusting beast?"  So you see, there are people who believe. They simply don't like being forced to accept what really happens in this world.
I've had readers who have a special 'connection' with J.B. because they, too are cheaters, adulteresses. They're happy that someone finally had the balls to tell their story. And the amount of men and women who fantasize of double-penetration by giant cocks...you'd never believe how many there are.
I can only imagine. Well, Rosie, thank you for telling us more about you. Where are you headed now?
Rosie: New Mexico. I've heard there are many undiscovered 'myths' and legends I need to 'research'. I hope to find more thrills!
Well, it sounds like you know exactly what you're looking for. Good luck and I hope you'll come back to let us know how you're doing.
Rosie: Definitely. Thank you for having me.

If you'd like to purchase Rosie's books, just click the links and you can find them here:

Both books are only 99 cents. When Rosie released these books, she listed them for free. In just a number of days, there were over 900 downloads. I'm off to buy my own copies. I have to know what all of the fuss is about!
Happy Reading!
