Monthly hotties coming your way

Meet Mr July…

Okay, I have yet another confession… as a little girl I used to sneak into my dad’s collection of Playboy magazines. I just loved reading the letters to the editor and dreaming of the day I might look like one of the sexy centerfolds. I suppose my enjoyment of naughty magazines was an early manifestation of my appreciation of all things sensual, which grew into an urge to create my own erotic worlds through story.

Now I’m a big girl, my dream is to have my own monthly Playmates – or play boys. At this stage I don’t have the time or finances to go scouting for talent (damn!) so in the meantime I’ll showcase gorgeous characters from my stories.

First up, Mr July – Zane Winters, aka as Shadow…

Stats: Black hair, caramel-brown eyes
5’11  |  43 inch chest  |  33 inch waist

Born and bred in Vegas, Zane studied architecture at school, but his passion is repairing vintage and classic motorcycles and riding his Vincent Black Shadow…

Vincent black shadow
Zane loves….
Impromptu meals with intelligent, witty women, including his mom…
And holidays in Cuba where he can dance as if no-one is watching…
Check out his story to see him in all his considerable glory:
In Pokerface, Zane is invited to an abandoned theatre to play poker – the prize… a night with the gorgeous, naked woman the cards are dealt on. But he has stiff competition and the outcome is more than satisfying!

hidden rooms and abandoned secrets

I don’t know what it is about abandoned buildings – the older the better – that gets my imagination fired up, but its seems I’m not alone in my fascination. Who doesn’t love those renovation shows where hidden rooms are discovered in historic, long-abandoned houses? I adore George Clarke’s Restoration Man.

abandoned-theatreRecently, while researching the setting for my latest story ‘Pokerface’  I found this glorious old theatre on YouTube.

This one is much larger than the one in my story, which is host to an underground poker game with an unusual prize, but the atmosphere and decor is perfect!

Pokerface?

I love my latest story, but I have to admit, I’m hopeless when it comes to having a poker face myself. If you could see me right now, you would agree. It’s release day! and I’m grinning like a Cheshire cat, so pleased to be launching my precious love-child out into the world…

Want to know what the fuss is about? Here’s the low-down…

On a Thursday evening, in a boarded up theatre in downtown Las Vegas, an illicit poker game takes place. Each player is carefully selected, their skills expertly matched …

A jaded playboy tempted by a titillating prize.

A cash-strapped mechanic looking for a diversion from his difficult reality.

An underground poker game where winning hands are rewarded with sensual novelties… and the ultimate prize—a night of pleasure with the naked woman on whom the cards are dealt. 

Pokerface is FMM menage. Contains adult themes and explicit sex scenes – recommended for 18+ readers.

As an added bonus I’ve included the RWA award winning short erotic story, ‘Daisy, Chained’ (in case you haven’t already read my sizzling martial arts story) because one of my favourite characters – Hiro – is in both.

And a little tip – Pokerface is available in epub and mobi, but the pdf version is the prettiest, if you’re into that sort of thing…

Enjoy 💋

Sensual inspiration and a sexy new cover

Inspiration in unlikely places…

In the past whenever I traveled I always found myself consumed by a new story idea, and inspiration would hit in unexpected places. An airport. A pizza joint. On the Tube…

These days I don’t travel so much (even less atm), but sensual ideas still find me and weave themselves into ‘what if’ stories in my head.

Like many people, I am watching more streaming tv lately, and one of my most recent story ideas came from watching the historical drama/action series ‘ The Last Kingdom’. What girl wouldn’t have romantic thoughts watching Uhtred fight and laugh and love. That smile… those eyes…

It got me thinking… what goes on behind the scenes on-set… an exotic location away from home, surrounded by like-minded people. I’ve worked in a similar situation – a staff of over 400 people confined in a remote location – so I have a fair idea of the intricate webs of relationships and politics that form.

Add to this scenario a dream setting (in my imagination) for filming a streaming tv show – Aveiro, the Venice of Portugal – and you have a recipe for some steamy shenanigans.

With the new season of ‘The Last Kingdom’ (inspiration for ‘Kingmaker’ in my novella Little Blond Lies) I’ve spiced up the cover and reduced the price to $2.99 until the end of April (click on the link to read free in KU or to buy on Amazon)…

The pleasure in pain

I’ve just been editing the short story that won the 2018 RWA Spicy Bites comp for erotic romance, Daisy, Chained about a girl who embraces her feminine nature after a chance encounter with a sexy martial arts instructor and his whip chain. It got me thinking about the relationship between pain and pleasure and why a taste of pain at just the right moment can increase or prolong sexual pleasure.

So, you guessed it, I did some digging…

Pain for pleasure has long been a sexual practice and, as well as dominance and submission, is an important element in BDSM. Like a drug, the pleasure experienced with pain can be addictive and lead to a choice of lifestyle that leaves ‘vanilla’ sex in the past.

“… love, sex, pain and violence all stimulate the release of similar chemicals and hormones in the human body. Endorphins that are released in painful experiences are often perceived as pleasurable. Stress and pain can also stimulate the serotonin and melatonin production in the brain, which transforms painful experiences into pleasure. The release of epinephrine and norepinephrine in pain can also cause a pleasurable ‘rush’. Normal human biological response actually supports the complex and mysterious link between pain and pleasure, which we see in the runner’s high and the facial expressions during orgasmic release.” Wendy Strgar

Possibly in Daisy’s case, she receives some psychological healing with the experience of ‘good pain’ as explained by Dr. Jess O’Reilly:
‘If you’ve experienced pain in your past, you likely consider it a bad form of pain; by using pain as a source of pleasure, you can create a new type of pain — good pain.’
https://www.sexwithdrjess.com/podcast-2/#.Xlng05Mzb6d

Recently two studies found that ‘participants who engaged in consensual sadomasochistic acts as part of erotic play experienced a heightened sense of bonding with their partners and an increase in emotional trust.’

tropical temptation…

I’m so excited to announce the release of my second Girls on Film novella, I can’t resist sharing a tiny taste with you. As with Little Blond Lies, Body Double is a stand alone read.

Set on an exclusive tropical island resort, the heat soars to ‘sizzle’ when celebrity ex-cricketer Aryan hires actor Kira to stand in for his elusive fiance for a romantic weekend. There are so many reasons they must resist the powerful sexual chemistry that makes acting passion – without acting on it – so hard… and its so much fun to watch them struggle.

Here’s a sneak peek, with a link to the book at the bottom…

He was so close the significant heat of his body seared through the fabric of Kira’s dress, his bicep against hers, his chest millimeters from her breasts. Aryan’s scent invaded her nostrils, a mixture of active man, leather and a cologne she’d never smelt before but was instantly addicted to. She tore her gaze from his mouth, turned up in an approximation of a smile, his full lips stretched thin with annoyance, and glanced upward. At that proximity, she could see his eyes didn’t echo the smile on his lips.

Not impressed with my performance? I’ll show you one even you’ll believe.

“Hello sweetheart.” Kira stretched her body so she stood almost as tall, swaying close so her breasts brushed his chest, her smile teasing as she parted her lips slightly, just as she’d seen his fiance do in a photo.

“Actually its Bunny,” Aryan corrected in a monotone as he slanted his head like a predator intent on the kill. His gaze dropped to her mouth and he pulled her torso against his.

Kira stopped breathing. He was going to kiss her.

Time slowed as his mouth dipped to hers, and Kira had to fight the urge to meet his lips with passion. The force of his mouth as it captured hers tipped her head back, opening her mouth to his and pulling her into his vortex. She gasped, inhaling his breath, sweet with real mint.

Suddenly, her body was molten, every nerve end tingling where he pressed against her and she melted against him, her tongue seeking his. This man was no soft rabbit. He was solid as granite, his ribs and chest rock-hard.

Dangerous.

I’ve been a bad girl …

Anyone who read my post in July, or my author’s profile in the RWA Spicy Bites Anthology this year will be wondering – where are the novellas Josie planned to release by the end of the year?

Well, I sort of got caught up on the novel I’m writing based in 1920’s Washington DC and Jazz Age Paris. I have been working on the novellas, I promise… the first, a Girls on Film novella – Little Blond Lies is now available on Amazon and KDP.

To make it up to you, here’s a little teaser of the hot chemistry between streaming tv star Ethan Cox (when you read it you may notice an uncanny resemblance to a certain Last Kingdom hottie…) and Shakespearean stage actress Anya Stein when they meet in a steamy seaside town in Portugal. All I’m going to say is that Anya is out for revenge, but what she gets is so much hotter… if you like the taste and want more check it out on Amazon.

But, before I tease you, take a look at this…
