About Lea Barrymire
Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Victoria is a business owner, a friend and a succubus, the latter being something she despises with her whole heart. As she works to free others like her from the daily need to feed from sexual partners, she stumbles across her mate. Now she’s fighting destiny and the call of his lust, refusing to sate her need on the one male made for her.

Dominick is a technowizard used to living his life his way. When he arrives at a business meeting and senses his mate, he’s intrigued. When she slams walls up around herself and refuses to even look at him, he goes on the prowl. He uses her sex phone business to get her attention, but can he keep her on the line long enough to capture her heart?

Dominick knew the moment that she started feeding off his energy. The magical pull was slight but still there in the back of his mind. He couldn’t stop from smiling when her face finally relaxed and a beautifully peaceful look descended. She’d been distant and cool when first materializing in his mind. Now that he was feeding her, he could feel her loosening up, releasing some of the control she had on their session and her mind.

Moving his hands up under the dress was a taste of delicious torture. He could feel her smooth skin under his palms, feel her heat, but could only imagine what she looked like. Were her legs long enough to wrap around his waist if he hoisted her against the wall? Would they look pale against his tanned skin? Did she have any freckles on her ivory skin, or was it creamy and unblemished? He groaned, his imagination fueling his thoughts, feeding his desire to unwrap her like a present. He wanted to push the fabric off her legs and catch a glimpse of the prize he was after, but the longer he waited the better it would be.

He watched her face as he stroked both hands up along her legs. He stopped at her knees and skimmed his palms back down to her ankles, lightly running his fingers over her skin. He grinned as she shivered under his ministrations. He did the circuit again, up slowly along the outside of her calf then back down to her ankles. The feel of goose bumps under his touch made him want to shout in triumph. She was reacting to the session even if she didn’t want to.

PROMO & REVIEW: Star-Kissed Chocolate by Azura Ice

Lyran born, but raised on Earth, Nova Staraway’s highly exotic appearance intimidates men. That is, until Roman Carvanoff, the owner of Four Dimensions Financial Services, arrives to investigate a suspected embezzlement scheme at Nova’s firm. He finds her attractive, but his strange mood swings and unpredictability have her thinking he’s simply a rich playboy.

After Nova’s pet dragon ruins her first night with Roman, she’s certain she’ll never see him again. He further confuses her with his continued on-again, off-again interest. But soon Nova discovers he may have a secret, one that has her second-guessing his intentions and could keep them apart forever.

About The Author:

Azura Ice writes several subgenres of romance, which includes, but is not limited to het, ménage, m/m and can be set in contemporary times or even in a far away world or another dimension. Azura’s muse leads her by the hand, and her fingers do the light-speed typing.

Who is Azura Ice? She’s a full-time author represented by an awesome literary agent. She is also owned by two crazy felines of tabby descent (although they swear they’re of Egyptian lineage). Azura writes in an attic study that overlooks a beautiful valley, and enjoys her husband’s company when he’s permitted to enter her domain. However, if he brings offerings of coffee and an occasional chocolaty treat, she’s inclined to let him in her office more often.

No need to call the police,” Roman finally replied to the chauffeur. “No harm is done.”

He returned his attention to Nova, who still sat trying to get her bearings. She pushed her hair out of her face and watched as his gaze swept her body for injuries. The simple action almost forced a desirous gasp from her lips.

“An aircar in front of the limo stopped unexpectedly when a taxi darted straight up in front of it.” Slowly, he moved his right hand from her arm up to brush the rest of her hair out of her eyes. “Are you okay?” Concern resided in his voice. “I don’t see anything on you that’s bruised or scraped. Is anything sprained?”

Oh, she could think of a couple things she’d like to sprain. “I don’t think so.”

He gripped her chin lightly and turned her head to the left then the right. “Did you hit the seat with your face?”

She shook her head. “You caught me in time. I’m just a little rattled, that’s all.”

Something flickered in his eyes. They deepened from vibrant jade to deep, forest green. Before she could react, he bent his head toward hers, fingers still gently grasping her chin. Her breath hitched, and the startled rhythm of her heart leapt into a frantic one. Mesmerized, she watched as he closed the distance between them. His lips touched hers, tentatively at first. When she didn’t protest, his mouth slanted across hers, his breath sweet and warm.

Shocked, Nova uttered a tiny sound that he devoured. She could only sit still as he kissed her. Surprise transformed into delight, and she melted against him, reveling in the sensation of his lips upon hers, the way he tasted so overwhelmingly male. The inebriating aromas of his cologne and natural scent wreaked havoc with her rationale, and the hard planes of his chest beneath her palms hinted at the muscles beneath. With one hand, Roman cupped her cheek for a second before threading the fingers of his other one in her hair. He deepened the kiss, trailing his hand from her face to her shoulder. Slowly, he passed it down her arm, each hair stiffening against the caress.

Desire roared through Nova. She wanted him so much, needed to feel his naked body on top of hers. Heat settled in her core, the intensity of it forcing a whimper to her lips. At her soft noise, Roman kissed her harder and sighed as if he’d tasted the most delectable candy.

“You have reached your destination,” the limo’s computer announced.

“Sir?” the droid said.

Reluctantly, Roman drew back. Nova sucked in a shaky breath, her senses spinning as if she’d just stepped off an amusement ride. She blinked rapidly, trying to process everything, and looked up at Roman, who regarded her with desire smoldering in his gaze.

Reason returned to her. She scrambled up onto the seat and collected her handbag. “This is my stop. Th-thank you again for dropping m-me off.”


“I, uh, better get inside. Kazzi is probably wondering what’s been keeping me.” At those words, heat rushed to her face. Nova fumbled with the sensors on the door, nearly falling out on the curb. She caught her balance and straightened. “Uhm, have a nice lunch. Goodbye.”

Sarah's Review:

Thank you to Decadent Publishing for asking me to review this story.  Thank you to Azura Ice for creating a story that made me want to go out of my comfort zone in terms of romance.   Sci-Fi romance is a genre that I normally don't read.  Ms. Ice made the perfect statement on my FB page when I was talking about reading out of my comfort zone:  "It's like trying a new dish. It tastes great, but it's so different, you have to take your time so you can get used to the new flavor." 

I truly enjoyed reading this story but the sci-fi aspect was definitely out of my comfort zone.  I loved the dynamic between Roman and Nova.  I loved the romance that built between the two of them.  

If you are a sci-fi romance person, you will like this story.
