I'm So Sexy ~ @oddlynn3 #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #MSSAuthors #LynnCrain

Welcome to week 75th week of My Sexy Saturday. The week’s theme is I’m So Sexy but it isn’t about those pretentions flops who think they are God’s gift to the world. It’s about those who don’t know they’re sexy. Like the girl or boy next door. Those characters are the special kind of sexy and exude it but don’t necessarily know they do.

We’re into our third week of 2015 and I’ve made quite a few changes to things I’m doing. First, I’m getting more organized so that I can do more for you, my readers and fans, over the coming year. After all, as much as this is all about me, the truth of the matter is that really this is all for you, dear readers and fans. Without you, there wouldn’t be a me at all and I understand this with all my heart.

This year is going to be all about you and what I can be doing for you. Check out my Facebook author page to see what I’m giving away for Christmas. The announcement of a single winner will be made tomorrow. If you’re wondering why so late, the problem is that people didn’t comment at all. If you don’t comment, you can’t win. So if you haven’t commented, do so quickly and you’ll be in the drawing for some fabulous gifts. And yes, I’ll ship anywhere in the world. Good luck.

This week in Austria has been another weird one. Temperatures have been all over the place from hot to cold to blustery winds. Today as I look out my window, it’s a very gray day. Rain was initially in the forecast but that has changed to snow flurries late tonight. Right now, one living here doesn’t know if we’re supposed to wear our long johns or our bikinis. Seriously. But all laughing aside, NOAA determined that last year was the hottest year on record since they had started keeping records. Pretty scary if you ask me.

One of the things I did this week was to organize all my writing projects for the year. And that included the revision portions of them as well. So far, there are thirteen books to start or finish and five to revise. I was lucky enough to finally find a great spreadsheet that will allow me to track up to 8 projects per spreadsheet for a year. I’ll be writing more about that in my new weekly column called My Writing Life. I figure it’s about time for you all to get a glimpse into my life. Yeah, it’s not all limos and tiaras, let me assure you.

This week, I’m sharing sexy seven paragraphs from a new story in my Captive Illusions series, Merrick and Jenna. The series is all about a woman’s deep, dark fantasies, so imagine my surprise when the characters hijacked this book and started making it their own. Jenna is one of those girls who is very sexy and doesn’t know it. But Merrick knows it very well and he’s going to teach her just what she does to him. Right now, this books is 28% complete and you’ll start to see my WIPs in my sidebar this week. It will be published by my traditional epublisher, eXtasy Books sometime this year. I’ll keep you posted on when. Here’s the setup:

Merrick never expected to be part of his brother, Iain’s wild sexual games.  Once it is over, he realizes he wants to find what Iain has found…his soul mate. When he meets Jenna, he’s afraid she is the one.  But she certainly isn’t what he expected. She’s a hunter or so he thinks. But how can someone so innocent belong to a group as cold as the Hunters?

Jenna cannot believe her eyes when she sees Merrick…talk, dark and brooding…and everything she’s ever wanted in a man. There’s just one problem. He’s an immortal and her family hunts immortals. But he holds the key to her deepest, darkest fantasies. And the more she’s with him, the more she realizes her father has deceived her. But is she ready to give up everything she knows for an uncertain future?

This series is very interesting to write because while they are all about finding one’s soulmate, they are also a menage series. I love writing this because it is very different from what I normally write. Hopefully, you’ll find this snippet compelling enough to pick up the first in the series, Captive Illusions: Iain and Kelsey at eXtasy Books. Enjoy this exclusive snippet from the coming soon 2nd book in the series, Merrick and Jenna.

She felt his hands at the back of her head. Soon the silken scarf was around her neck as she raised her gaze to stare into the bluest eyes she had ever seen. Her breath quickened as those eyes watched her intently. “Why are you staring at me?” she questioned softly.
“You’re beautiful,” he answered without hesitation. “And I’d like to hear your explanation of why I should kill a beautiful woman.”
Jenna felt the heat in her cheeks. She had wanted to hear those words from someone for so long and here, a sworn enemy, told her the very thing she needed to hear. “Thank you.”
“You’re very welcome.” He ran his fingers along her bare body in a straight line, paying special attention to her breasts and legs. Kneeling in front of her between her legs, he ran his hands along her inner thighs. “But you still haven’t told me why you think I’m going to kill you.”
She licked her lips slowly. “I betrayed you and your clan.”
“Hardly. If it hadn’t been you it would have been someone else,” he practically purred in her ear. “What I really want to know is all your sexual fantasies. All of them.” He pulled the scarf off her face and looked at her as if judging what her reply would be.
Her heartbeat went up a notch. “Why?”
