My Sexy Love by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday

This week's theme:  My Sexy Love

This is 7 paragraphs from a my a work in progress.
                Malik waited at the bottom of the stairs. Damn if the man didn't look sexy. He was dressed a bit more formally than earlier, now in black slacks and a white shirt with a black jacket, but no tie.

          His raven hair, which earlier looked wild and untamed, now lay silky against his scalp, but she detected a wave flowing through it. She longed to run her fingers through his hair just to see how soft it really was.

          "Good evening, Catherine." His husky greeting sent shivers of awareness skittering over her nerves.

          "Good evening, Malik."

          "You look stunning." He took her hand and pressed it against his chest, right over his heart.

          His heart beat strong beneath her palm and her how heart pounded. She was glad she dressed up a little bit. "And I think you're a natural flirt." For some reason his banter relaxed her. Usually, she didn't go in for teasing, but enjoyed it coming from him.

          "Guilty as charged." He leaned down. "But don't let tell anyone or else I'm done for," he whispered before straightening and tucking her hand in the crook of his arm. "It is my pleasure to escort you."

Sexy Saves the Day by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday

This week's theme:  Sexy Saves the Day

This is 7 paragraphs from a my book Passionate Desire which releases July 1st from Trifecta Publishing.

"Here's the deal," Joe said, his tone menacing. But his arms were down and his hands loose at his side. "Let her go and I don't beat the shit out of you."

Vicki shivered. She'd never heard Joe's voice so cold. But sudden warmth filled her as well. He wouldn’t let Derek hurt her.

"You got an army with you?" Derek sneered, gesturing at the empty dock.

"Don't need one." Joe's strong voice kept her from falling completely apart. "You've got two seconds to let her go."

"Oh, like I'm scared. Isn't the new lover trying to play tough?"

"You don't want to find out how tough I am." Joe moved toward them.

Vicki squeezed her eyes shut against the pain radiating from her scalp when Derek tightened his hold. Then the pressure was gone, and a hand shoved her hard in the back and sent her flying. She opened her eyes to see Joe as he caught her, holding her against his body.

My Sexy Warrior by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday

This week's theme:  My Sexy Warrior

This is 7 paragraphs from a book that has yet to be fully written. One of these days I'll get to it. My warrior heroes Ryder and Trent have come to Earth to find the crystal needed to save their planet, instead they find their bonded mate. Needless to say this is where the fun begins.

Enjoy this week's My Sexy Saturday.

          Ryder spun on his heel and followed his mate out the door.  This was the last thing he expected when he came to Earth with his brother.  The crystal was the reason they’d been sent, and Ryder never failed when the council gave him a job, but this they would understand.
          Once a bonded mate was found, they could only follow their instincts.  Nothing else mattered.  She was aware of his presence, he could feel her aura pulsing with fear and excitement.  Her pace quickened and he forced himself to slow down.  There was no way he could lose her now, her scent permeated every single sense.  He could be blind and still find her in a crowded room. 
          Sudden pain took his breath away.  Low gut wrenching pain. The bonding was already starting to take place.
          Ryder.  Trent’s voice echoed in his mind.
          I’m okay.  He answered automatically.  He was a warrior, pain was a part of the game. 
          I’ll be there soon. 
          Ryder rounded the corner and saw his mate slipping up a long stair way.  He stepped back so she wouldn’t see him.  When Trent arrived they would go together to get their mate.

Sexy and Strong by Marie Tuhart #mysexysaturday

It's that time again for My Sexy Saturday.

This week's theme:  Sexy and Strong

Katie from my book Bound & Teased fit this category at the end of the book. She's confronted by her father and ex, who were trying to scare her into coming back to New York, but now trying to blackmail her in front of the town. Since I only have 7 paragraphs I picked the one where she tells the town and her father of her love for her two special men.

Enjoy this week's My Sexy Saturday.

            “These two men standing here are anything but upstanding citizens. I don’t know about the state laws around here, but they are perverts. They are not normal. They prefer having sex together and share a woman.”

          “We’ve done nothing wrong,” Ry whispered in her ear.

          “Damn right.” Her head came up.

          “Katie?” the mayor looked at her, then to Ry and Jed.

          “Mayor.” Her voice was soft, hesitant. She glanced up at Jed and then Ry. She cleared her throat. “We’ve done nothing wrong, period. I love Ry McKade and Jed Malloy.”

          Jed jerked, and Ry did the same. She loved them? Why hadn’t she told them?

          “These two men make me happy, and if Felton’s Creek residents can’t understand and accept it, then it’s the town’s problem.”

Moment of Fate by Karen Stivali - Blog Tour

Bryan Dane’s been living the dream—photography student by day, up-and-coming rocker by night. His summer goals are to earn his last few credits, graduate from NYU, spend as much time in the recording studio as possible, and survive the next few months without sex so he can complete his yearlong goal of self-imposed celibacy. Everything is on track, until he meets Oliver Newcastle.
For years Oliver planned a marriage of convenience with his high school BFF, but now that she’s fallen in love for real, with someone else, it’s no longer convenient. So Oliver came out to his family, quit his job, and left small-town New England for NYC, an intensive summer study program, and a chance to find his own happiness.
From the moment they meet the sexual tension between Bryan and Oliver sizzles. But Bryan wants no part of a relationship, and Oliver wants to sew his wild oats—he just isn’t sure how. Oliver seeks Bryan’s help navigating the NYC gay scene, which throws them together in increasingly more sexual situations until they can no longer deny they're hot for each other. Bryan is desperate to keep things simple, but fate might have other plans.
