Temped by the Gargoyle by Lisa Carlisle - New Release



Meet your perfect match this Saturday night–or your perfect match for the night. The eclipse of the red Supermoon sends crowds into Boston for an evening hyped up for a night of passion, one not to be missed. Boston police officer Larissa Riley wants nothing to do with the media-driven event, but her friend convinces her they need a night out after all they’ve gone through. They visit a new gothic-themed club where Larissa is disturbed by the attractive stranger eying her. Roman, a gargoyle shifter and commander of the Stone Sentries, patrols from the rooftop of a club on the night of the eclipse. The Supermoon bodes danger and he puts all his sentries on watch. When a blast of dark magic soars past him, he searches for its origin and fixes on a brunette. Something about her is different, demanding all senses be on high alert. Is she dangerous? Or is she in danger? Deciding a night with a hot stranger would be good for her, Larissa invites Roman back to her hotel, unaware he is surveilling her. The night takes a dark turn as secrets are uncovered and danger moves in. Her beloved city is under attack. Larissa must decide who to trust before all is lost, including the fate of her closest friend.  


While surveying the city from above, a dark-haired woman on the roof caught Roman’s attention. She stood ramrod-straight and she fidgeted with her glass. Something about her discomfort triggered his gargoyle instincts, making him observe her more closely. When he scanned her from head to toe, he didn’t gain any insight other than how attractive she was. Her hair was rich and lush, flowing in loose waves over her shoulders. It had a burgundy tone from the various lighting fixtures around the deck. Her wide eyes searched her surroundings. What was she looking for? His gaze traveled down her body, studying how well it was encased in a form-fitting black dress. He lingered on her killer curves, fueling his imagination with sordid fantasies of what it would be like to touch them. He snapped his eyes away. He was supposed to be gauging what had set off his senses. Seconds later, his gaze returned to her, despite his admonition to himself. Her expression turned troubled. A strong reaction rose within him, one he couldn’t read. He rubbed the back of his neck. Something about her put all his senses on edge; he had to keep an eye on her, although he had no indication why. She spoke to a blonde woman next to her, and he turned his head to focus on their conversation. With all the chatter in the room, he couldn’t catch it, despite his acute sense of hearing. What troubled the brunette? An instinct to protect her kicked in. The pull toward her was compelling, a sensual onslaught that overpowered him. Remember why you’re here. He stepped back, both mentally and physically separating himself from the woman, and shielded himself behind the bar. That compulsion was one he’d never experienced, and not knowing what it meant bothered him all the more. All the uncertainty about tonight had him on edge. Turning away, he gulped in the cool night air. It invigorated him for only a moment. What hit him next almost knocked him off his feet—a sudden whoosh of energy. It blasted past him with immense force and power, indicative of dark magic. A gut feeling made him turn to locate the brunette, and he scrutinized her. He sensed something unusual about her than the other humans on the roof. Was she the source of that dark magic? He opened a mental link to communicate with Arto. There’s a woman on the roof I’m going to keep an eye on. Is she in danger? Or is she dangerous? Arto asked. Good question. That’s what I plan on finding out. I sensed dark magic and will investigate further. His triggers were now on full alert. Whoever she was, he wouldn’t let her out of his sight. Not until he figured out who—or what—she was. And why she had that effect on him.

My Sexy Holidays by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday.

This week's theme:  My Sexy Holiday

This is 7 paragraphs from a work in progress. I'm not sure where the story goes yet, but its fun to write. It's New Years Eve and my character are having a little fun in a hotel room.

            “Someone is overdressed.” Her gaze clashed with his as his fingers brushed her neck. The clasp on her halter top dress gave way and the silky material slithered down her body to land at her feet. Ryan groaned and Sabrina glanced at his face. “It's a damn good thing I didn't know the only thing you had on under that dress was a thong.”

          A thrill of excitement shot through her. She'd never worn a thong before tonight because she'd thought they'd be uncomfortable, but his words made her feel sexy and her apprehension at wearing it disappeared. “Oh, why is that?” Her fingers slipped past the elastic on his underwear and teased the smooth head of his cock.

          “Because we never would have left the patio. I would have lifted you onto the railing, ripped your underwear right off and thrust into you.” His fingers trailed down the front of her underwear. She lifted her hips into his touch. Yes. She wanted him to touch her there, to thrust his fingers into her pussy, to make her come.

          “What's stopping you now?” Where were these words coming from? She was usually shy in the bedroom. But there was something about Ryan that allowed her to be bold. She slipped her hand farther down and cradled his balls.

          “Ah, Sabrina.” His lips captured hers in a hot, hard kiss before he broke apart from her once again. He removed her hand from his balls, then leaned down, lifted her into his arms and tossed her onto the bed.

          She giggled as she bounced on the mattress, but her laughter trailed away as he toed off his shoes, and then stripped out of his trousers and underwear. “Impressive.” It was the only word she could think of. Work of art might be better. Though her fingers had traced his muscles earlier, now she could see how buff the man was. Hard all over, from his six pack abs to his cock. Her pussy moistened.

Ryan bent over and took his socks off, giving her a good look at his nice round ass, before joining her on the bed. He crawled between her legs. “Time for this to go.” He hooked his fingers on either side of the thong. She raised her hips. He pulled the fabric from her and tossed it across the room.

Sexy in the Sky by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

Thank you everyone who reads My Sexy Saturday every week.  I hope you are enjoying them.

This week's theme:  Sexy in the Sky

This is 7 paragraphs from a work in progress, the scene will change a little bit from what it is now.  My two characters do have fun on a plane.

“You’re so wet, so hot.” His lips caressed her ear and he was glad she’d left her hair up. His tongue laved the delicate shell as he continued to stroke. Her breathing increased when he slipped a second finger into her wetness.

“Tight, warm and welcoming, just like I remembered.” He kissed her neck before moving back to her ear and nipping the lobe. “Do you know how hard it was for me on Saturday to play the gentleman and not try to seduce you into bed?”

“It wouldn’t have taken much.”

Joe groaned. “Now she tells me,” he whispered, and she let out a little laugh. “Feel my fingers, sweetheart, knowing I’d rather be thrusting my cock into you hard and fast.” He began moving faster and his thumb began playing with her clit for a second time.

“Oh God, Joe.” Her words were breathless as she arched her pelvis toward his thrusting fingers. Her climax was coming fast.

“Again, baby. Come for me. Let me feel your pleasure, knowing later tonight we’ll be together in a big bed, naked and fucking.” Her sex tightened around his fingers as if it was trying to pull them in. “That’s it, baby,” he crooned as she pressed down hard against his hand. “Tonight I’m going to pleasure you so much, you’ll scream. We’ll come together so many times. I’ll use my mouth, my fingers, and my cock all over your body.”

He captured her lips just as her second climax ripped through her.

My Sexy Ex by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday.

This week's theme:  My Sexy Ex

This is 7 paragraphs from my first cowboy book, Roped & Ready. Becca has come to the Quick Silver Ranch not know it's a ranch for couples only, this is her first encounter with Tyler before he finds out she's there alone.

          Becca tilted her head back and gazed into his twinkling blue eyes when he gave a chuckle, her body went on alert. She knew that laugh. Tyler Carson. The bad boy of Jackson High. And her college lover. Her knees went weak and her clit throbbed.

          Her hand almost started to check her hair, but she quelled the impulse. Tyler had seen her tousled look after making love to her for half the night. And if he was still single…Oh, man how was she going to survive a week with him around?

          Tyler Carson couldn’t prevent the grin that spread across his face. While he was aware new guests were arriving today, this was a surprise. A very pleasant surprise. As he lived and breathed, Becca Dalton had come back into his life.

          He hadn’t seen her since he left San Francisco State for Humboldt. While she was only a few inches shorter than is six-foot-three frame, she seemed tiny to him. And she weighted next to nothing when he lifted her over the fence.

          His body went on alert the second she walked into the clearing, as most guests didn’t venture to the stables until at least the second or third day after their arrival. When he caught the scent of jasmine, his cock hardened in response. The reaction had caught him off guard.

          Even now he was having trouble making his body obey his commands. He needed to remove his hands from her waist before he did something foolish like carry her into the stable, throw her into a freshly bedded stall, and thrust himself deep into pussy.

          He had to behave. If she was here then she must be a guest, and with a partner. Guests were off limits, and he didn’t mess around with other men’s women. Fighting his instincts, he released her and stepped back. “It’s been a long time, Becca.” Too long.
