Excerpt

Grabbing her roughly by the arm, he hauled her back until she was flush against him, her back to his front.  Grinding his erection into her ass, he lowered his lips to her ear.  “You think you can push me like that and I won’t respond?” He taunted, nipping her ear painfully.  She let out a low moan, her body beginning to betray her.  
“You’re mine.  I won’t share you, and I’ll be damned if I let anything happen to you, Gwyn.  The sooner you get it through your head that I own you now, the better.”  His hand trailed down her body, cupping her aching pussy through her shorts.  Feeling her heat, he groaned.  Dragging them backwards, he hit one of the tall trees, his hands coming up to brace her shoulders.
“Brady, please,” she begged.  Her body was a slow fire, desire taking over every part of her being.  This man and his fierce possessiveness of her awakened a darkness in her she didn’t know existed.  He pinched her nipples roughly through her thin shirt, her back arching against him.
“You want my cock, sugar?  Right here out in the open?”

SYNOPSIS:
What’s it like to fall in love?  To have everything you’ve ever wanted in your perfect woman?  To feel like your life is about to change forever, because you’ve found someone who completes you?  Someone who makes you want to do better in everything that you’re involved in, because you know that they’re the only person who believes in you.  What’s it like to have found someone who you finally believe is worthy of your heart?  And how devastating is it when that one perfect person… is accused of murder? Jason Adrien is a new defense attorney at his father’s law firm.  Constantly struggling to live up to his recently deceased father’s name, Jason finds comfort in the arms of Valerie Benedict, an enigmatic nurse who’s as secretive as she is gorgeous.  The attraction between the two is undeniable, and the passion is more than either of them can stand.  Regularly meeting up with Valerie to turn mundane nights into real life erotic fantasies, Jason finds himself falling for her against his will.  But, everything changes when he gets a phone call in the middle of the night. According to the voice on the other end of the phone, Valerie has been arrested and accused of murder.  As Jason listens to the details surrounding Valerie’s arrest, he realizes his world is crashing down around him.  Everything he thought he knew about Valerie Benedict has been a lie.  The person Jason was falling for couldn’t possibly be the same person being accused of this brutal, unthinkable murder.  Or could she?  Jason will have the opportunity to find out everything he needs to know about Valerie, because she has chosen him to defend her. As Jason and Valerie cross the line between attorney and client, and dive into a full-on conflict of interest, the two of them embark on an erotic rollercoaster ride with twists and turns at every corner.  If Valerie is innocent, does Jason have what it takes to prove it to the world that believes she’s guilty?  This case is more than a make-or-break for his career.  Valerie’s life is on the line.  And Jason will have to risk everything… Defending Her. *This Book Is Intended For Mature Audiences*

“I didn’t know if I would have to spend the entire trial in jail or not,” she continues, inching even closer.  “But, just like I always knew you would, you saved me, Jason.  I knew you would save me, and I’m so thankful that you did it.  I’m so thankful that you’re here.” Valerie moves over even more and her hand grazes my leg.  The contact shoots a bolt of lightning up my body and I instantly feel myself getting hard. “I told you I believed you, and that I wouldn’t lose this trial.  I intend to keep my word,” I say, but there’s more that needs to be said.  “But, I’ve also been thinking about this, Valerie.  Now that you’re out, and we’ve been to court, and we’re about to start prepping to go back to court for the actual trial for your life, me and you can’t keep doing what we were doing before.  It’s unethical, and if anyone found out, I’d be disbarred.  We just can’t keep doing it.” My words don’t seem to affect Valerie in the least.  She places her hand on my leg and lets it slide up the inside of my thigh.  I know that I should push her hand away.  I should get up and walk out of here right now, before I do something that could ruin my career—but I can’t. “I hear what you’re saying,” Valerie replies, still using that husky, enticing voice.  “But, remind me—what exactly were we doing before?”  She lets her hand rest on my inner thigh and waits for me to respond. “You know what we were doing...  This has been wrong from the beginning, and it’s still wrong now.  We can’t do this.” “It was wrong?  It didn’t feel wrong to me.  It felt perfect.  It felt like it was meant to happen, and it felt like we were a perfect fit together.  It felt like you were made to be inside of me.  So, did it not feel good to you?” Ugh.
“Of course it felt good to me.  It felt amazing,” I reply, but then I catch myself.  “Stop it!  I know what you’re doing.  We can’t do this, Valerie."

 Excerpt

Before I could react, he had pried my legs apart and was working along my inner right

 thigh, moving slowly upward. By now, my reservations were gone and I surrendered to

 him. And when his fingers reached the junction between my legs, I gasped when his

 hands slipped under my butt and gripped my cheeks, squeezing them in his hands. He

 could see every intimate part of me, I was sure of it. Letting go of my butt, his hands

 came around to my folds. At that moment, when his finger slipped between my legs, I

 clapped my hand over my mouth, suppressing my scream.

His fingers moved along my folds, tracking my wetness up and down. I was so wet at this

 point that my insides heaved with desire as he stroked me. I wanted to cry out, ask him

 what he was doing, but I didn’t. I let him manipulate my folds, slowly, methodically

 bringing me to orgasm. My hips began rocking in time with his hands. God, those hands

 were making me feel things I never thought possible. I could feel my climax building,

 like a wave caught in the shallows it was gaining momentum, waiting to wash over me.

I was at his mercy now. I ached for release and was willing to do anything to achieve it.

 But when his finger inched back and forth over my vagina, teasing me with the promise

 of what was to come. I bit my lip, desperate for him to penetrate me. His fingers did not

 wait long to slip inside of me, and when I felt the pressure of him moving deeper, I

 arched my back and moaned. He was rubbing back and forth over that spot, the one so

 many men try to find but give up. Well, Mr. Hands knew exactly where my spot was, and

 as he slowly moved in and out of me, I knew I was going to come harder than I had ever

 come before.

Book Blast: One Dance with a Stranger by Ju Ephraime




Genre: Romance

Mesmerized by the sensuous moves of the stranger who danced with her at the Lucian Club, Caitlynn Pilgrim has been trying for almost two years to get him out of her mind, with no success. Until that night, she was perfectly happy with her single life and was not looking for a man to complicate it, but this stranger with his seductive moves has her rethinking that decision. So, for over a year, she has been returning to the club, hoping to run into him and have one more dance with him. Alas, Caitlynn does not know the stranger's name or even what he looks like. She was so taken with dancing with him, she’d neglected to look into his face, and when she was suddenly called away by her friend, Esther, she’d returned to pick up where she left off only to find him gone.


Andre Cunningham burns with memories of the beautiful, passionate woman he danced with two years ago at the club. He had spotted her as soon as she walked in, waving her hand in the air. He’d danced up to her and, without uttering a word, fitted his body against hers. They moved together as one. She was as fluid as honey, weaving her magic over him, until he was intoxicated. Just as he was about to ask her name, she separated herself from him and went to talk to her friend… she did not return… he was devastated. From that day to now, he has haunted the club every chance he gets, searching for his mysterious dancer, but so far, it has been an effort in futility. This Labor Day will be two years since that unforgettable dance. He hopes this will be the night he reconnects with his mysterious dancer, even if he has to search every corner of the Club. He will not give up until he finds her. She has branded him with her magic, and ruined him for all others.



~Excerpt~

Chapter One
Brooklyn, New York


She could recall the night she met him as if it were yesterday. She and her friend, Esther, had gone to the Lucian Club after the Labor Day parade in Brooklyn, New York. She’d walked into the club ready to dance, and as soon as she hit the floor, she had her hands in the air and she was dancing to the hot beat. The next thing she knew, a man was standing in front of her, dancing right along with her. The sexual heat between them had been intense. Every move she made, he had matched it. She had done a lot of dancing in her time, and no one had ever been able to match her move for move. It was as though they were two halves of a whole; one pulled, and the other responded. She was in such a sexual haze that she was not even aware of her environment. Everything had faded into the background, even the fact that she’d come to the club with her friend. She’d been riding such a high that she believed, had he turned around and thrown her over his shoulder cave-man style, she would not have offered one word of protest but would have gone willingly.

As a matter of fact, the way they carried on had a caveman-like quality about it. So no names were exchanged, no words of greeting, no phone number changed hands—just two people bent on getting as much sexual gratification from dancing as they could.

She was rudely brought back down from her sexual haze when she heard her friend, Esther, calling out to her. Damn, she had forgotten all about the woman. Go away already, she’d thought to herself as she moved even harder against him. When she felt the tap on her shoulder, she was not willing to open her eyes, but she did, and there was Esther, saying she wanted to leave.

What was it about people that they couldn’t go to a club, seize the moment, and go with the flow? No, because they were too uptight to have a good time, no one should.

We came here to have a good time.

She was having a good time, so why couldn’t Esther just go away? She turned around to tell her to get lost, but one look at her sad face, and the words died in her throat. She reluctantly released her partner and walked outside of the club with her.

“What’s up, Esther?”

“I want to leave.”

“Why? I thought you came here to have a good time.”
