WRITERS WRITE... WRITING PARTNERS FEUD ~ All About Cassi 13



Come join us in our expose' on Cassi from BEYOND THE THRESHOLD.  She is a fun-loving, full-bodied hottie, who has her own unique look and style.  We thought it would be fun to expose, with emphasis on the word expose some of her outfits over the next several weeks.

ALL ABOUT CASSI




The next morning Cassi rose first and left to dress.

Beef, smelling the coffee brewing, slipped on a pair of boxers and sought out Cassi.

When he arrived in the kitchen she was cooking.  "Don't you look special."

"Thanks," Cassi reacted.

She was wearing a Raggedy Ann outfit.  Red yarn braided pigtails with blue bows, came from under a dust maid's cap. Her blue and white corset set off her abundance of tits.  The nipples were available for inspection.  White and red striped  knee-high socks rose from red mary janes.  That was all she wore.  Her foo-foo was undressed and ready to play.

Cassi bent over the stove stirring mushrooms in a pan. 

Beef crawled up behind her, grabbed her hips, and began kissing her derriere.   His oral interest found his mouth between her legs and on her vag's entrance.

"One second," asked Cassi as she turned off the heat under the pan.  She turned, dropped to the floor, spread her legs, and invited Beef to dine.

He braced muscular arms on either side of her, knelt between her bent, spread legs, but didn't enter her.  In his methodical way, he wanted to enjoy the sight and scent of his Cassi. 

The lace trim and red/white colored outfit framed breasts that should win awards for their perfection.  He dreamt of those breasts when he wasn't with her, and knew he'd never tire of fondling them, tasting them, looking at them.  And he did all three, adding a bit of a massage, coaxing a soft moan from her.  Only then did his engorged cock head nuzzle her clit, teasing it for a moment and then with a hardy, vexing laugh his head moved downward. 

His action was not totally unexpected, and a soft moan of anticipation mingled with a giggle that ended in a gasp as his tongue slipped over her clit, tickling it with a feathery bombardment.  Now and then, it would slide downward and plunge into her cunt, deeply, then just as quickly surge back up to give her swollen nub even more devilish attention. 

Cassi's hips began to move.  Her fingers clung to his head, encouraging more.  When he believed she was getting beyond arousal aiming toward climax, he tongue fucked her while using his thumb to continue to torment her clit. One arm slipped under her ass, heaving her closer, up and down, in and out, constant fucking until he experienced the tightening in her vaginal walls and the liquid fullness slipping over his tongue.  Finally after she released a long held breath and slumped in exhaustion, he lifted his head and grinned. 

"I munch for my breakfast.  Feed me!"

Don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end of the post for a chance to Win a Dreamspinnere gift card courtesy of Julie Lynn Hayes! Contest closes on August 31st. The book spotlight tour is sponsored by Pride Promotions.

Cover Artist: Paul Richmond

Blurb:

Hollywood comes to Roanoke when a major film studio announces they’re shooting part of their Civil War film at a local plantation. Vinnie is dismayed to discover that the lead actress is none other than the beautiful and popular Caroline St. Clair. Ethan and Vinnie made her acquaintance in LA the previous Halloween, while undercover, and Vinnie still hates her for hitting on his man.  Ethan reassures his partner that Roanoke is big enough for all of them to co-exist without running into one another.

But Fate has it in for Vinnie and Ethan, and they find themselves assigned to a new case involving the actress. Apparently she requested Ethan specifically, to Vinnie’s dismay. But he doesn’t have a choice, he has to play nice. It’s small consolation to Vinnie that his new undercover identity involves Hollywood heartthrob Troy McGarrett, who is very handsome and openly gay. Troy isn’t shy about letting Vinnie know he finds him attractive.
Jealousy abounds in the second book of the Rose and Thorne series, and time is not on Vinnie and Ethan’s side. If they don’t solve the case before the film shoot is done, there’s a good chance they’ll be separated for the first time since they were partnered.  Assuming Vinnie doesn’t kill Caroline St. Clair himself.

Excerpt:
“Hey, Vin, did you see who’s in town?”
I was slumped at the kitchen table, my head cradled on top of my arms. I was grumpy and sleepy—and maybe a few of the other Seven Dwarves—and I needed my first cup of morning coffee before I could even consider being slightly civil.
We’d spent most of last night sitting in our car, in the goddamn middle of nowhere, staring at nothing, assigned to a fruitless surveillance in a small town about an hour from Roanoke. As it turned out, all the real action was in a different small town in the complete opposite direction from where we waited, because our so-called informant couldn’t spell the name of the place correctly.  What a difference one letter makes. So we’d ended up completely wasting our time, got lost trying to find the rest of the task force at the end of the night, almost got hit by a deer that came out of nowhere and took a sudden shine to our car, and then suffered the indignity on our return of being asked where the hell we’d been all night—and we still needed to do the paperwork. And now Ethan wanted to play Twenty Questions?
“Don’t know and don’t care,” I mumbled.
I heard him slap something down on the table. I forced one eye open, just in time to see him sashay toward the coffeemaker. Okay, for that ass, I’d open the other one too. I watched as he poured the blessed elixir into two mugs, added the appropriate amount of creamer and sugar to each, then returned to where I still watched him and set one in front of me.
Right next to the morning paper. Real subtle, Ethan.

Julie Lynn Hayes first began publishing short stories and poetry in the 1990’s, when it was a different ballgame altogether, and Ebooks hadn’t been dreamed of yet. That changed in 2010 with the acceptance of her first romance novel. She’s come a long way since that first book appeared, and is finding the journey a very educational one.
She lives in St. Louis with her daughter Sarah and her cat Ramesses. She often writes of two men finding true love and happiness in one another’s arms, and is a great believer in the happily ever after. She likes to write in different genres, to stretch herself in order to see what is possible. Her great challenge is to be told something can’t be done—she feels compelled to do it.
When she isn’t writing, she enjoys crafts, such as crocheting and cross stitch,  needlepoint and knitting, and she loves to cook, spending time watching the Food Network.

Book Spotlight & Giveaway~ The Scorpion's Empress


Discover Yoshiyui Ly's The Scorpion's Empress and enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $50 Gift Card!


GENRE: Erotic Romance

After years of serving a corrupt government, Ser Videl, an idealistic paladin, learns that her younger sister is tangled in a dark scheme against Raj Mangala, the compassionate yet troubled Empress of the city's oppressed lowtown; the two women meet and are deeply drawn to one another, finding a shared sanctuary in their violently-divided city. The Scorpion's Empress is intimately written through the eyes of both twenty-seven year old women.

Videl's loving devotion is just what Raj craves, but Raj is wary of letting her guard down while protecting her throne. Determined to prove her worth, Videl chases after Raj and works to unravel the mystery of the plots against the Empress. Raj wants Videl to serve her emotional and sexual needs, and the two explore a meaningful relationship of dominance and submission that delves fully into their deepest wants. When the conspiracy against Raj comes to a head, Videl's loyalties are tested when she is forced to choose between her past and her Empress.

Excerpt:

This promise of adventure—I hadn't felt it properly in years. Women for me have come and gone, literally. The beginnings were never like this. They hadn't looked at me with such controlled, respectful want. Like a gentleman. Like a knight—a true paladin. They hadn't held their hand out to me, not giving a damn about everyone staring at us. They hadn't asked me to dance as Satya sang such a haunting, romantic song about uncertain longing.

And then she spoke again: “I'm assuming another rule is that I don't get to learn your real name.”

That was way more than anyone else had managed to do.

I leaned in to whisper in her ear, “The name's Raj. You're not allowed to tell no one. Promise me.”

“I won't betray your trust. I swear that on my honor. I really like your name. It suits you, all the power you have. Tell me whenever I have permission to call you that. I'd like to earn it.”

She guided me over to the dance floor. The crowd parted to make room for us. They whispered to each other as we passed by; they saw how entranced I was, no matter how hard I fought to hide it. I watched the seriousness turn over as shadows across Videl's beautiful face. Serious, but soft, somehow—she had a perfect balance of the two almost all the time.

Book Review- Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts

A wildly intriguing first book in a new trilogy from the acclaimed Nora Roberts.

My Rating for Stars of Fortune is 3.5 Stars

Artist Sasha Riggs has been haunted for over a year by dreams and nightmares, of people she has never seen or met so when she gives in and decides to follow what her dreams are saying, she is at the Island of Capri where she meets the five people she has dreamed of for over a year. Six strangers must form a cohesive unit and find the three stars that fell from the sky. If they don’t, then the worlds will tremble and crumble as the darkness gathers to drive out the light. With the help of a magician, a loner, a stranger, a fighter and an architect, Sasha finds the strength to accept this mission from the gods and try to thwart an evil so deadly, it will kill to get to the stars. But the question remains, can these six people find a way to trust one another with their secrets even as they fight to the death?

I adore Nora Roberts when she writes these trilogies. It gets me through the times when her next big JD Robb book isn’t out yet and I can get my fix this way. But with STARS OF FORTUNE, we get the same formula as her previous trilogies but with a setting that is as lush as it is delightful. I got to give this author credit, she manages to create some interesting storylines for her trilogies that just pull me in after awhile and with a cast of characters that I fall in love with. That said, I got to drop the rating for this first book a little because it does feel like ‘same old, same old’ here. We got light vs. dark, evil wanting to keep the prizes and rule the world and characters where at least one or two feel like I have read about them before. Every so often there comes a time where this prolific author just feels like they are returning to a tried and true formula and is checking off boxes. Over all, I fell into the story after I figured out who was what and the fight that these characters faced. I loved how a few of the characters were a tad different in a way that made them fresh and intriguing. I am eager to see what Annika, Doyle and Sawyer have up their sleeves as well as see who they fall in love with.

But for this first book, we meet all the players though Sasha and Bran are the center of book one. Bran is a magician though he has secrets that over time come out to the rest of t he group in surprise. Sasha is a see, dreams things that can come true and is shaken to her core over the strength these dreams and nightmares have been the last year. What she didn’t expect was finally seeing the five people she painted come to life and join her in a quest that could kill them all. I loved the connection between Bran and Sasha but what got old quick was Sasha constantly telling herself she is weak and needing to be stronger. For me, Sasha was strong, stronger than she even knew but Bran’s constant reassurances got old really quick. It was borderline whininess and neediness that I had to kill the urge a few times to not yell at the book or smack Sasha repeatedly. I liked the characters dynamic with one another and how they, after a period of time, formed a bond that just grew stronger with each page being flipped. The characters are quite strong and each unique enough to avoid the same old thing we see sometimes in other stories in the same genre.

STARS OF FORTUNE was an intriguing story that drew me in after a few chapters and I got invested I the characters as they raced to find the first star before the evil goddess who wants it for their own nefarious purposes. Ms. Roberts delivers an entertaining story that will keep you glued to the pages until the very end. Now I can not wait to read book two, Bay of Sighs, and see where this dedicated group of strangers goes next.
The Guardians trilogy is as follows:

Book 1: Stars of Fortune
Available at Amazon

Book 2: Bay of Sighs

Book 3: Island of Glass (Coming December 2016)

Book Review- Fatal Identity by Marie Force

Another stand out story that will keep the reader entertained and guessing till the very end!

A Recommended Read!

My Rating for Fatal Identity is: 5 Stars


As Lt. Sam Holland gets closer to her one year wedding anniversary to Vice President Nick Cappuano, she is dreaming of the beaches of Bora Bora and lots of time with her husband with no demanding careers coming between them. But she never anticipates a perplexing case that will tear Washington D.C. apart when the truth comes to light.

Government worker Josh Hamilton begs Sam to take a look into a claim that he just might have been kidnapped as an infant and raised by the kidnappers in their family. The shocks keep coming as Sam finds out just who his parents are and just how much complicated it got. When one of Josh’s family members is murdered, Sam has to tie all the puzzle pieces together as she races against the clock to solve the case because whoever is trying to keep this secret is going to any lengths to keep the truth from coming out.

I absolutely adore this series. I picked up the first book in the Fatal series, Fatal Affair, to read while I was waiting for this author’s next Green Mountain series book to get here and was sucked into the story as well as falling in love with characters that just stole my heart. The story is a fast paced thrill ride from start to finish. Let me warn you though, there are scenes of intense passion between Sam and Nick that are graphic if not so hot, I swore my e-reader was going to blow up from all the sparks flying between these two. If you don’t like graphic yet tender sex scenes then I advise you to either skip over those scenes in the book or pass on this author’s book (which I hope you don’t). Ms. Force has a way o f capturing her characters emotions and letting them show their vulnerabilities while keeping them as real as possible, which is a hard feat to do perfectly in a story much less a series where the characters grow and expand. With each page I was drawn into the case and storyline, racing alongside Sam as she along with her team tries to figure out all the pieces of this complex and increasingly weird puzzle that surrounds Josh and his family.

For me in this series it all about the characters as well as the cases they have to solve. I love how this author delivers complex casers that leave the reader breathless with twists and turns that you don’t expect. For this new case I was perplexed alongside Sam and felt the author did a bang up job in capturing the secrets as they come to light of the Hamilton family. I love the main characters, Sam and Nick. They are completely perfect for one another and has such a passion for one another that it makes me blush sometimes at how connected they are to one another. That kind of love and romance just hit all my love buttons and I was melting as I read their sex scenes, hoping my e-reader won’t melt from all the heat these two can generate. FATAL IDENTITY is a rollicking good time full of twists that left me hanging on the edge of my seat, flipping pages to see what happens next.


What makes this series stand out is the core cast continues to grow and evolve with each book and that right there makes me invested in the series as a whole. Ms. Force is a dynamic writer that knows how to get her characters to open up, show their vulnerabilities and strengths in a way that will leave you eager for more. As I continue to explore this author’s backlist for more reads to explore, I find myself drawn to her work in a way that astounds me sometimes. Ms. Force is fast becoming one of the few authors I will pre-order books and am eager for more. Now all I can ask from this author is when her beloved readers can get another dose of Sam and Nick as well as their friends again. If you enjoy red hot romance, intriguing yet complex cases and a setting set in the heart of Washington DC then you will definitely want to check this series out because I guarantee you will fall in love with this series and binge read it like I did in a week.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement

WRITERS WRITE... WRITING PARTNERS FUED ~ All About Cassi 12



Come join us in our expose' on Cassi from BEYOND THE THRESHOLD.  She is a fun-loving, full-bodied hottie, who has her own unique look and style.  We thought it would be fun to expose, with emphasis on the word expose some of her outfits over the next several weeks.

ALL ABOUT CASSI




At 2am Beef arrived at Cassi's place, had a key and entered.  The place was dark, but for the light that came from her bedroom.  He followed it like a beacon, already envisioning what delights were within.

He walked into the room and wasn't disappointed, never was, to see her wearing only a bra, belly down on the bed.  Her never-ending cleavage beckoned like a sorceress' magical spell.

She licked her lips when she saw him. The wetness making them appear fuller and pinker, inviting.  "Strip," she ordered.

Beef did as instructed, nearly stumbling in his haste

"Come close to the bed."

He did.

"I want to suck your cock."

"I want you to suck my cock."

She shifted, tits plopped off the bed's edge, and she began to mouth-pleasure him.

Beef undid her bra and wrangled it to the floor.  He couldn't control his breathing in his eagerness to touch her tits while she sucked him.

She knew she had talent but she had never had enough skill to swallow something his size.  Of course, she knew he wanted it, hell, every man wanted that.  She tried, pushed, grabbed his ass to pull him closer, but struggled to get much more than half of it down her throat.

Sensing her frustration, Beef flipped her over, climbed into bed with her and enter her pussy, which was inordinately wet, pulling her legs up around his hips.  Their fucking went as all their fucking did, bringing great success.

As they snuggled, she asked, "Did I disappoint you?"

"How?"

"I know you want to find a mouth that can take all of you."

"I never said that."

"But you do, don't you?"

"I want you.  And all we have."

"I've talked to Gale, she can deepthroat an elephant's trunk.  She said she'd willingly be my cocksucking surrogate and periodically swallow you.  I can call her."

"Why don't you keep practicing on me.  Who knows you could figure it out."

"Sure?"

"Sure."

"But..."

"Gale can join us sometime down the road.  Maybe as road-scholar/professor."



* * * *



A knock came to his door.  He opened it.

"You Beef?"

"Yup."

"I'm Gale.  Cassi sent me."

"Oooook?"  He remembered the name.  What she could do?  Cassi did unexpected things, but this?

Gale entered his home, without prompting removed her sweater top and bra, to show a pair of the largest breasts in South Jersey.  Her nipples were the softest pink he had seen.

"Those are spectacular."  A compliment was due when a compliment was due. 

"Just a tad bigger than Cassi's."  She bare-chest modeled in her mini skirt, spinning, lifting, and bouncing.

Despite the open view of everything private, he kept staring at her tits.  "Can't tell, that they are bigger."  And he couldn't tell, in his mind, Cassi's were the biggest and best.

"Grab.  You know the feel of hers."  She pulled his hands onto her breasts.

"I'll take your word for it."  He tried to tug away but not violently, didn't want to hurt her feelings so he fondled like she was a small kitty.

"I'm here to..."

"I'll pass."

"... no guy can pass on what I can do."

"Cassi told me. I'm good."

"The pussy is off limits.  No Kissing."  She held up counting fingers as if etching rules into the air.  "You can play with the girls.  Don't hurt them.  I will be able to get any cock down my throat.  No gag-reflex.  Let me see what we are working with.  Pull it out."  She eyed his pants like a dedicated prime beef inspector.

"I'm fine."

She tossed him a quick glare.  Making it obvious that he better get with her program, now, immediately, cut the crap.  "This is non-negotiable.  Cassi is my friend and I made a promise to her.  She is hurting over this.  So let's keep her feelings in mind."  She unzipped his pants and unfurled his mighty anaconda, laying it on two hands. "Aww shit.  It is bigger then she said."

"Sorry." 

"Are you adverse to helping?"

"How?"  He obviously was not sure where she was going.

"Once I get started and reach the point of no return, will you just force it the rest of the way?"

"What?"

"Yes, just make it go down.  I can take you being rough."  She nodded an affirmation to seal the deal.

"That seems all wrong."

"You'll like doing it.  Everyone likes doing it."

Gale knelt and began to masturbate his penis with precise determination and skill.  It grew to a remarkable length. She had a very small mouth, with shallow lips. the same color as her nipples.  "Ye-ouch," she remarked.

"What?"

"It is even bigger then I first imagined.  Does that thing hurt?  Do you go brain-dead when you are erect?  No, dude that is huuuggge."

"We can call this off."

"No.  I'm here.  You've big wood.  I like sucking cock.  So let's give this bad boy a shove down my throat.  I once took one this size, maybe it was a bit smaller... maybe.  If you have to pound my head in the wall to seat the cock, do it."  She glanced up, earnest.  "I made a promise to Cassi, so come hell or high water I will swallow it all, if I have to die trying."

With those words the door opened and Cassi barged in, "Ah-ha.  I knew you'd like it."

"But... she said that you cried over this."

"Gale, I told you in confidence about his size."

"Sorry," Gale replied with a shrug.

"As for you mister, we are done.  If all you want is a greater-than-great blow job there's Gale.  Shove it in her."

"But..."

"Just teasing.  We are here to get my suck on."  Cassi removed the saddle of unexpected pain and angst from Beef.

"Ok?" Beef sighed.

"Gale will show me technique."

Gale noted, "I hope you don't mind if I go deep on it.  A lot."

They both replied, "No."
