Those Naughty Couples

Hi Everyone!

Hope your day has been a wonderful one so far...I’m hoping to make it more so...LOL! See, I haven’t gotten very many comments during this blog hop so far and that makes me sad, very sad. I’ve been trying to get the word out to you all about the Naughty After Dark Blog Hop but apparently it’s not good enough.

Which is why I waited so long to see if anyone commented. See, I tweeted that I would be giving a $10 gift certificate to the first one who commented on yesterday’s blog. I did this at 8:52 am PST and have been waiting ever since. Noon was the cutoff...sigh. Does that mean I don’t love you guys? NO!! It doesn’t. What it does mean is that I’m upping the ante and going to give away an ebook AND a $10 gift certificate to the first one that comments today.

But now...what to talk about, what to talk about? Yeah, a writer who doesn’t know how to yap? How unlikely is that one? LOL!

Today I want to talk about all those naughty lovers in our stories. Yesterday, I mentioned Gini Koch’s Alien series that has the naughty lovers, Kitty Katt and Jeff Martini. All I can say is hot, hot, HOT!

Now, I have my fair share of hot lovers in my books as well. In each of my Santa’s Elves books, I have a sexy elf combined with an extremely sexy leading lady that’s human. I had fun writing each one of those characters and hope that some of you have had a great time reading them as well. My favorite all time heroes to write about are those that seem bigger than life. Most of them seem to be of the Scottish persuation and are in upcoming books. I love Logan MacKenzie from Where’s My Underwear? and Alfred the dragon from A Dragon’s Lady. Here’s a little tidbit from Where’s My Underwear? to get you going. Please remember this has not been professionally edited but it has going through lots of critiques and tons of self-editing. Yeah, it’s getting more. LOL!

“No, Ronald, this is something I should be doing myself.” I stepped from the lift and straight to the door, pressing my finger against the button. I turned slightly when I heard the doors of the elevator close as the penthouse door was flung open.

“What the bloody hell is it now?”

And there he stood in all his wild glory. This was not going to be easy because this man looked better now than when we had been younger. His hair still had that wild, jostled look but in a more refined way. His eyes were still as green, his face still as angular but where the leanness of a young man had been were the more masculine hard lines of a fully mature male. While the shirt looked to be a designer style, he still wore jeans and they still left nothing to the imagination. I swallowed hard. He was sex incarnate.

“It’s only me, Logan.” I waved at him. 

He stopped and stared back at me. I wondered what he saw but I knew it wasn’t that young kid any more. However, I’m not sure the mature woman was better than the young girl I had been but I knew I wasn’t the worst thing around either. I must have sighed then because it seemed to bring him out of his trance.

“I suppose you’ve come to collect your property.” His predatory stare  would make any girl squirm but then again, I wasn’t just any girl.

No ‘hello, how have you been the last fifteen years’ from this man. It was all strictly business. I’m sure this would be only the first change of many I would be seeing. The Logan I knew really couldn’t give a rat’s ass about business or anything else for that matter. He had been warm and loving and carefree. It had caused a rift between him and his father which was something I couldn’t understand in the least. My parents had died in a car crash when I had been half way through grad school but we were always close. At that point my Grandmother took over for the parents who were gone.

“Good…straight to the point. I’m sure your wife loves that quality about you.” I nodded my head in agreement. “If I can come in and collect my underwear…”

He cut me off mid-sentence as he opened the door to usher me in. “No wife.”

This caused me to stop even with him and look up into his smoldering green eyes. “No wife?” I murmured as my heart beat faster.

“No wife,” he whispered back and dipped his head slightly toward mine.

What I wouldn’t do to feel those lips on mine. Until I had my property back I had to maintain focus. Maybe this working vacation would turn out better than I thought. “I – I need to get my underwear back from you.”

“No can do.” He stepped back, his hand pressing into my back, moving me inside.

Stepping a few feet away, I turned and looked at him. “What do you mean ‘no can do’?”

The door shut firmly behind him, he leaned back against it. “What do you want it to mean?”

I sighed out loud this time, realizing this would be harder than I thought especially since there was no wife in the picture. Logan had never been a push-over as he was proving once again. “Logan, I’m not here to play games. I want my underwear back.”

He stared at me a moment more before he pushed himself away from the door where he leaned, watching me as his eyes meandered up and down my body. “Why don’t you follow me and then we can discuss it.”

As I followed him through the large penthouse flat, I noticed the artful blending of old and new. The sofa might have been new but the knitted blanket I recognized as one his mother had knitted. Past and present dotted the walls in the form of pictures and other memorabilia.“It looks like you’ve done really well for yourself.”

“I get by.” He continued walking, not even turning to acknowledge the fact I had actually enquired about something personal.

“Boy, friendly, aren’t you?” I muttered under my breath. Suddenly, I found myself pinned against the wall. Not in a bad way mind you but in a sexual, predatory way. My heart felt like it would leap from my chest any moment now. I watched him consume me with his eyes, hot smoldering eyes that spoke of sin and sex and heaven only knew what other delights.

“What do you want me to say, Aeryn?” He leaned into my hair as if breathing in the scent. “Did you expect me to say something like ‘hi honey I’ve missed you these past fifteen years’? Or would you rather I cut right to the chase and take you right here?”

My eyes opened wide and I felt my body drip with desire as my nipples hardened. I wanted this man like no other but I couldn’t…no it wouldn’t do to let him know that fact…not one little bit. But I hadn’t expected the anger and maybe it had something to do with last night. “Ah – actually – ah, I really just came for my underwear.” I swallowed hard and watched him look at the workings of my throat. I realized it would take little to entice him to place his mouth there.

Slowly, he leveraged himself away from me, making sure I felt every bulge and muscle in his entire body. “Like I said, no can do.” He turned to continue on down the hall and as I followed him I saw he lead me to a rather large office with a splendid view of Edinburgh Castle.

“Wow.” I could only stare at the castle dominating the scene. “You get to look at that everyday?” I glanced at him amazed at the wonder I saw in his eyes. He was just as affected by what stood out the window as I was.

“I do.” He indicated a dark leather chair in front of his desk as I returned to the reality of the situation.

Turning away from the window, I slowly sat in the chair when my eyes caught something above his desk. I gasped and leaned forward to get a better look. In a beautiful display case were my underwear artfully presented like any other piece of art I had seen while walking through the penthouse. “Just what do you think you’re doing?” I finally managed to grind out through clenched teeth. This wasn’t funny one little bit.

See...I can write them really hot! Hope you enjoyed that little snippet. It’s your turn. Tell me about your favorite naughty couples and let me know what you like about them. I can’t wait to see your answers!

Don’t forget to look at yesterday’s blog entry and visit some of the other kick-ass blogs on the list. Our prizes are simple this week. Tomorrow, I’ll be giving away an ebook from my backlist as well as a $10 gift certificate to the first one who comments on today’s blog. At the end of the Blog Hop, I will be giving one lucky person a $25 gift certificate to Amazon or ARe.

  4. Lynn, you know we love you! Thanks for that naughty excerpt! I'm intrigued by this underwear thing they have going...

    And hmm... I haven't read Gina's aliens yet, but they're on the TBR--sounds like I need to step it up!

    Naughty couples? Hmm... I like ones that can hold their own with each other--Sugar Beth and Colin from SEP's Ain't She Sweet, for instance. There are some painful interactions initially, but that gives way to some fun teasing once they come to some basic respect for each other.

    I'll have to give it some more thought and see who else comes to mind!

  5. HOT is always appreciated thank you. I'm loving this.


  6. Angelique,
