*CONTEST ALERT* BOOK TOUR: Darkest Magic by @Eva_Lefoy #Giveaway



 Welcome to Sensuous Promo’s Darkest Magic Tour.

TEAM TYRION FOR THE WIN! By Eva Lefoy
I love dwarves. Always have. Even the short of stature, not officially dwarfish among us. Used to have a big crush on Wallace Shawn from My Dinner with Andre and of course Star Trek Deep Space Nine. (See how I work Sci-Fi into everything I do? Heh.) But then along came Peter Dinklage. Frankly, it was goodbye Wallace and hello Peter!
I first saw Dinklage in The Station Agent. A good little film that had me laughing when one of the characters nearly drove over him. Trust me. I know I sound sick, but it’s funny! Then I saw him in Game of Thrones as Tyrion. I knew right away I’d be hooked on the show, even though I don’t have a TV! And hey, I’ve been proven to be right. Dinklage is getting wonderful reviews for his work on the show. I, still in the grips of my dwarf love, have written a story with a dwarf. A snarky, flippant, bossy dwarf named Otis. Gee, I wonder who Otis reminds of?
Two guesses! LOL
Anyway, in order not to have people underestimate the power of this dwarf, I’ve made him the keeper of the blue light. In the original Grimm fairy tale The Blue Light, the dwarf just kind of appears. He’s somehow linked to the object but then again, he appears at the bottom of well in smoke. Yuck! My dwarves certainly do not take the troll road! They take the high road and the prefer a non-smoking environment thank you very much. So, first thing, I got Otis out of the well and gave him the object of power. And a wife. Darn it. Cause I wanted him to be happy … but, you know. Now he can only be my book crush and not my book boyfriend!
Nik can be your book boyfriend, though. As beta of the wolf pack, he works closely with Otis in ridding the forest of the evil witch Petrina. If he plays his cards right, Otis just might let him in on a few secrets.
Just because he’s shorter doesn’t mean Otis doesn’t have the smarts to get the job done. And did I mention he recues Nik’s love interest, Caroline from her father?
*nods sagely* A short man is definitely good to find! If you don’t believe me, try out Otis and his no-cussing-allowed wife Estrella in Darkest Magic, out now from Decadent Publishing.

Excerpt: When Caroline meets Otis
Her feet pounded out the rhythm of fear on the forest floor. The sound stank of agony, of struggling, doomed prey. How many times had she heard it, thrilled to it, while hunting? But now she was the hunted, her beating heart desperate to stay alive.
Her father closed in. His hot breath seared her shoulder blades, his warmth and scent getting closer, closer. The muscles in her back twitched in anticipation of the agony caused by the metal slicing through her flesh. How many more seconds would it take? One footstep. Two. Three. Oh, God!
Wham!
Her life ended, but not from behind. Something big, blue, and fast hit her from the side, knocking off her feet. Swept along with it, her trajectory unknown, she looked behind her to find her father long gone. What the hell? What could be faster than a wolf? Nothing. It’s impossible. I must be dreaming. Already dead. Caroline closed her eyes and surrendered to an unjust fate. It’s over. Done. No more.
A few moments later, the movement stopped. She was placed on the cool grass. Her final resting place.
 “Hey, lady. Do you think you can walk from here?”
She looked up into the face of a tiny, panting man dressed in green velvet, half bent-over with his hands on his knees. Impossible. I’m hallucinating. Shutting her eyes against the image, sure this was only her fertile imagination gone haywire, she focused on letting go.
“You’re not exactly light, you know. You could lay off the ice cream any time.”
She gasped and bolted to sitting. “What did you say? Are you calling me fat?” She did a brief check of her torso, arms, and legs. No, not fat. Was it possible she weighed more in death? Or was this little man merely a whiny wimp? After all, she was used to the strength of wolves. “Who the hell are you, anyway?”
He inhaled, puffed out his chest, and brought himself up to his full, rather stubby height. “Oren Thelonius Icapod Snodgrass.”
Her mouth fell open. She tried several times to blink the man away, but it didn’t work.
“They call me Otis, for short.”

“You can’t be serious.” Death was a lot stranger than she’d ever imagined.





Nik Epperstein’s alpha lost his mate two years ago and took an evil witch as his new bride. Ever since then, Eli’s leadership has become violent, bordering on insane. When Eli attacks him, Nik’s healing powers mysteriously vanish. He can’t defend himself, nor protect the wolf he secretly loves. Only through the help of a foul-mouthed witch and an overly-dramatic dwarf will he save her – but their assistance comes at a price.


Caroline has tried for two years to lure Nik into her bed and can’t understand his hesitation.  After all, she senses their mating bond loud and clear. Then Nik disappears. She confronts her father who tells her Nik is dead, and she’s next on his chopping block.  Without Nik to protect her, she flees the pack and is kidnapped by a man half her size. 


Reunited at last, the young wolves have one last chance to ignite their bond. But love must wait when battle looms. Eli and his wife attack, and aren’t above using dirty tricks to win. If Nik and Caroline survive the battle, the dwarf and his wife will require them to make a promise that will change their lives forever…

*CONTEST ALERT* Sensuous Promo’s Presents - Book Tour for Open World - C.O.V.E.N. by Casey Moss


Welcome to Sensuous Promo’s Open World - C.O.V.E.N. Tour.

* WATCH FOR CONTEST BELOW *



The world has broken out in wars. Las Vegas has been ravaged by chemical warfare and is now home to several clans and creatures.
Welcome to I-D-8 Entertainment’s newest game: Clans of Vegas—Endless Night.
Friends and family have gathered for a crunch time playtest of C.O.V.E.N.. When a horrible thunderstorm hits, everyone’s sucked into the game for real. In the MMORPG, Hope Collins is kidnapped by Buzz and forced to submit to his whims. Her boyfriend, Alden, has to delay his quest of defeating a clan’s prince to save her, but time and circumstance don’t seem to be on his side. Faith Collins is bombarded by strange dreams brought on by Buzz. Her boyfriend, Tavis, learns to dream walk, but can he help break the spell she’s under and save her before she’s lost to him?
C.O.V.E.N. is more than just a game. It’s a whole other world.


Excerpt

Big T watched her with a huge grin on his face. Happier than she’d been in ages, she returned the expression. Again she closed her eyes, continued to juggle the shining spheres and hummed the tune from the dream she had the night before.
“Zya,” Tavis whispered proudly.
She popped her eye open and stared at him, astonished. The orbs came to rest in her hands. She stepped toward him, the tops of her fingertips barely touching his chest with the spheres stilled in her palms, and opened her mouth to speak.
“Nice set of balls you have there in your hands, Faith,” Cassandra commented from the entrance to the kitchen before her cousin could get a word out.
Faith and Big T dropped their balls like they were two kids in trouble for having something they shouldn’t. As the orbs hit the floor, they dissipated into the air.
Cassandra shook her head. “I don’t know about you two. Every time I come in here, I catch you guys up to something. Well, have at it. Alden is off fetching Hope. I’m heading out to Morrigan’s property. Then we’re off to the temple. Since I’ll be with my friend, you won’t have to babysit me, Big T.” She gave each one a cursory glance again, then left.
Once the front door closed, Faith gathered her wits and focused back on Big T. She gasped. “You’re glowing!”
“Describe it for me.”
The rich, deep timbre of his voice reverberated through her core, reminding her of the passion she’d shared with her new dream man. She took a deep, steadying breath. “It’s like a fog edging your body. Not a thick fog because I can still make out some detail behind you, but enough of a haze to be defining. It’s a gorgeous turquoise. It ebbs and flows with your breaths.”
“Well, my dear, you’re glowing, too. Your hue is a beautiful amber, like that of your energy globes.” He took her hand in his.
“This is too weird,” she commented as the colors swirled and blended together. “It’s like what happened in my dream. Maybe I need some more sleep.”
“No, Faith, you don’t need more sleep. You need to find your eyes, look with your soul, then you’ll see the truth and the path which is already before you.” He stepped in toward her and pushed a lock of hair behind her ear. “Your salvation from Mabuz’s world and the ties that bind you there lie in choosing the right course of action, deciding between good and evil.”

New Release + a Contest with @TinaDonahue

TAKING EVE by Tina Donahue  
Buy link

A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…        

Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he looks remarkably like her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.

Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.

Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.


Excerpt  

Taking her arm, Spencer brought Eve to the table so the mirror caught her in profile. He removed her bands and chains, tossing them aside. The fetters clinked against the snowy marble floor. He pulled off her fur boots, leaving her with nothing except the white satin ribbon.
“Bend over the table,” he ordered. He took off his derby and shrugged out of his greatcoat, putting both near the lone chair. “Spread your legs wide and present—“
“She’s not to be harmed,” Anthony interrupted.
Eve looked from man to man, feeling their struggle for power, Anthony’s indignation that he wasn’t in charge of her.
“No, my lord.” Spencer spoke as dismissively as he had earlier. “However, I have to examine and prepare her for tonight’s event, the same as I’ve done in the past with all the others. You’re well aware of that—are you not, my lord?”
Anthony clenched his jaw.
“Perhaps his Lordship would care to announce the girl’s arrival to the rest,” Spencer said. “Then await our entrance as he’s done before.”
Anthony seemed ready to argue the point, but didn’t. He left the room, slamming the door.
The thunderous sound had barely died out when Spencer edged close, his size and heat intimidating Eve, but also stirring something within her. A desire for a firm hand, a strict taskmaster.
Carefully, Spencer brushed Eve’s hair aside, his fingertips lingering on her shoulder. His touch light. Pleasant. Her breathing picked up. She waited for more. He leaned down, his cheek close to hers, his powerful body clearly restrained, his scent one of soap, wool, leather.
“Do as I ordered,” he whispered. “Be quick about it.”
She had no choice. Eve knew she wanted none. Unnerved, she obeyed, palms on the table, nipples touching the polished surface, legs parted widely, ass lifted.
Her position was deliberately revealing, meant to show Spencer both of her openings.
Eve lowered her face.
“No,” Spencer said. “Look at yourself and me in the glass. Watch what I do to you…what you can’t stop.”
Heat stung Eve’s cheeks. She turned to her reflection, seeing a face she scarcely recognized, one feverish with excitement and lust. Her hair was a black cloud drifting over her naked shoulders.
With his hands on his narrow hips, Spencer regarded her naked ass as a lord might—arrogant and unhurried—his pace telling her what she already knew. He ruled as all men did. As a woman, she yielded. Even to him.
Eve’s cunt grew damp with wanting.
He finally moved to the other side of the table, his stiffened shaft straining against his trousers. His arousal filling Eve with a curious combination of excitement and dread.
Would he take her before her other Masters did?
Would he whip her?
He returned to his original spot, a roguish look on his face. “Wider,” he ordered.
She spread her legs even more.
“Arch your back. Present your lovely arse to me.”
Eve strained to meet his demands, her body obedient even as her mind rebelled. She was more fully exposed to him than she’d ever been to Anthony.
A faint smile touched Spencer’s mouth. Minutes passed as he studied her scandalous pose.
Her skin reddened from the fire’s warmth and the turmoil building within her.
He dropped to one knee for a better look at her cunt and anus. His breath skimmed her thigh.
A low moan caught in Eve’s throat. She tried to swallow but couldn’t. She saw his arousal…and her own.
“You’re quite wet,” he murmured.

CONTEST: Sensuous Promo’s Presents - Book Tour for Breaching the Lieutenant by Eva Lefoy


Welcome to Sensuous Promo’s Breaching the Lieutenant Book Tour.

* WATCH FOR CONTEST BELOW *

Second Lieutenant Mark Oates has a lot to learn, both about the U.S. Army and about himself. When a senior officer confronts Oates about his latent homosexual tendencies, he’s backed into a corner and only one man can help him out. Trouble is, can he trust him not to ruin his career plans?

Gunnar Evans was dishonorably discharged from the Army during Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell for his openly gay sexuality. He fought the system and lost, but continues to help the young officers sent to his door discover their hidden desires. When gorgeous hunk Lt. Oates arrives, he knows he must breach the lieutenant’s defenses in order to show him the pleasure he deserves. But once he gains access, he may never want to let him go.

Excerpt
In the following excerpt, Evans has Oates in the back of an SUV in his mechanic’s shop and Oates is eager to go all the way.

“Evans. Fuck me. Put your cock in me.” He reached down and spread his thighs open with his hands, watching Evans’ eyes light up. “Please. I want to feel you. Just you, Evans. Put your cock in my ass.”
“Oates…” Evans’ tone was part warning, part moan. “You’re not ready for that. Trust me.” He looked worried, but Oates saw something else lurking in the former hard-ass sergeant’s gaze. Desire. And he wanted that yearning turned toward him, rushing through him, wanted to rub it all over him until he stank of it. His cock swelled.
He stroked a hand up Evans’ thigh and groped his balls. The sac was soft, warm, and he rolled the sergeant’s testes gently in his hand. “I mean it. If you don’t do it, I’ll find someone who will. But I’d rather it be you, sergeant. Show me. Teach me.”
Evans let out a soft cry and doubled over, closing the space between them.
Oates grabbed the back of his head, drawing him the rest of the way down. Their mouths met. He’d never experienced a kiss so firm and luscious. The sergeant’s lips were strong and they vibrated with his needy groan. Oates shoved his tongue between Evans’ lips probing, sampling. The man tasted like salt and sweat, and the flavor, mixed with the lingering taste of his cock, had Oates spreading his legs, desperate to be filled, even if he’d regret it later. He pushed Evans’ mouth away and left his hand on the man’s firm chest. He gazed at its perfection, stroking, caressing the darkly tanned pecs. He glanced up at Evans and they locked gazes. Neither of them said another word.
Evans moved off the vehicle, went to the tool box and grabbed a condom out of a dusty box. He watched Evans roll it down his full length, then clamber back up next to him. He hesitated, and Oates took the initiative. Grabbing Evans by the arm, he pulled him down so their chests met. “Just like this, Evans.”
Evans groaned and shuddered, his body quivering against him. His mouth searched for Oates’ once more, and he let him find it, let him kiss him hard. The manly stroking opened him, made him wanton, made him draw Evans’ hand down between his legs, his fingers to his eager hole. “Fuck me, sir” he whispered.

This is a *hot* read and part of my upcoming Bear series. Hope you like it!

WIN A KINDLE on the Primal Surrender Release Tour from @LoriKingBooks



Kindle Paperwhite Giveaway – Primal Surrender by Lori King

I’m a huge music fan, and with three kiddos in the house while I’m trying to write, I’ve learned that headphones are my friend. I actually have a very diverse taste in music, and I tend to pick music to write to based on where I’m at in the story.
If it’s sensual scene I might have an instrumental version of Alicia Key’s “Fallen” in my ears while I try to shape the scene on the page. If I’m writing a backyard barbecue scene in the middle of small town Texas, it might be Brooks & Dunn’s “Red Dirt Road,” or Toby Keith’s “Beer Run.” Whatever I choose, I like to keep track of it and then share it with the readers when I’m done, because most of the time it correlates perfectly to the story.
When I created The Surrender Trilogy, I used music to help me tell the story. Drawing on the emotions of the singer, and the lyrics I selected each song to represent specific scene or character, and then I compiled them all into one playlist. Check it out!

Primal Surrender, the final book in The Surrender Trilogy, released earlier this week, and to celebrate I’m traveling from blog to blog and I’m giving away a Kindle Paperwhite!

Read on to learn more about Primal Surrender, and the giveaway!

The Surrender Trilogy III: Brothers Mack and Ryker Thompson know the pain of failure intimately having recently fallen from the heights of success. One a former football star, and the other a master at his artistic craft, they couldn’t be more different from each other. Mack hides behind anonymity in order to cover up his pain, while Ryker figures it doesn’t matter if the glass is half-full or half-empty as long as there’s a bartender refilling it all will be well. Broken and haunted by the mistakes of their past, neither expected to find a ray of sunshine in the clouds of their pity party.
Claudia Schmidt, is the only daughter of a real estate tycoon that has a plan for turning the small town of Stone River into a suburb of Austin, Texas. When she is sent in to replace the project manager, and convince the town of the necessity of the project, she finds herself falling in love with the town, and the Thompson brothers.

Although ménage relationships aren’t foreign to Mack and Ryker, neither one intends on living one, so how can they decide who gets the girl? And what if the girl wants all or nothing? Welcome back to Stone River…
