The 5 Days of Xmas Giveaway – Day Two

5 Days of Xmas header 2

When Olivia asked me if I’d like to participate in a Christmas anthology with her and the other wonderful authors appearing here this week, well, I would have been crazy to turn her down. Not only because I’m addicted to her Sinners and Sole Regret books, but because I’d had a story of my own brewing in my brain. I’m the author of Unleashed and Rock Me, each of which is based on one of the delicious Ross brothers. Evan Ross of Unleashed is the successful attorney who falls for his best friend Kelsey. He’s hot and authoritative and powerful, but a bit of a straight arrow (until you get him hot and bothered…). His younger brother, Brian Ross of Rock Me, on the other hand…

Pierced in all the right places. Tattooed. Dirty mouth. Doesn’t give much of a damn about anything except his friends and his tattoo parlor…until he falls for sheltered virgin princess Candace Andrews. And when this bad boy falls, he falls hard.

When I wrote Brian’s story, it was 2009 and I wasn’t even sure a tattooed, pierced, foul-mouthed hero would sell at all (boy, have times changed). I wrote him because he was everything I wanted to see. It’s good that I did, because to date, Brian and Candace are by far my most popular characters. My amazingly awesome and supportive readers have been all but demanding to know what’s in store for these two after the events of Rock Me. I wanted to give it to them. What better opportunity to do that than at Christmas, alongside some of the best writers in the biz?

So here’s an excerpt from “Light Me Up,” my contribution to the A Very Naughty Xmas anthology. If you’ve read Rock Me, I hope you enjoy this update on Brian and Candace, and if you haven’t, then I hope it entices you to find out more about these two and the trials they go through to reach their Happily Ever After…


“We can get out of here as soon as you’re ready, you know.”

God, she loved him. He could express the simplest of ideas—hey, why don’t we get the fuck out of your parents’ house?—and she would fall in love with him all over again.

“I’m sorry,” Candace said, standing and moving over to slide her arms around his waist. “It started out such a good night.”

“Oh, yeah?” Brian’s mouth captured hers and all the bad feelings began to melt away. She was just about to lose herself in his kiss when his lips curved against hers and a delicious vibration buzzed against her clit.

She squeaked and tried to leap away, or at least get his hand away from his pocket, but he held her fast. “God, Brian.” Her knees went weak and his other arm tightened around her to take on her weight. The vibration stopped and she gave a full-body shudder.

He nuzzled her neck, his breath soft and warm against her skin. “I loved watching you light up whenever I did that.”

“Wanna light me up some more?”

“You have no idea.”

The toys were fun, but damn, he didn’t need anything to get her going except his mouth, his fingers…and the thought of a certain piercing he had that he knew how to use with shattering precision. Hell, just the sight of him, the way his eyes darkened when she could tell his thoughts were taking a wicked turn, could have her going zero to sixty in .02 of a second. How could she not love this man with all her heart?

His hands slid around behind her and squeezed her ass through her dress, drawing her close enough to feel the ridge of his erection through his slacks. With a little moan, she rubbed against it, internal muscles squeezing with her need to feel that thick cock sink deep, hot and tight inside her.

“I’ve been walking around with that most of the night,” he said with a husky chuckle.

“Mmm.” She reached down and gathered her dress up her thigh, giving him easier access. “Feel what I’ve been walking around with.”

He didn’t waste any time in pulling one hand back and stroking a finger over the damp silk of her panties. The move was meant to entice him, but dear God, she almost collapsed at his touch. “Shit, Candace,” he groaned.

She raised her thigh along the outside of his, opening herself, and let her head fall back as his fingers pulled aside her thong and explored her wetness with the barest of touches. “I love you,” she gasped when one finger slipped almost leisurely into her clenching pussy.

He made the little come-hither motion that curled her toes and ignited the familiar but always welcome liquid ache deep inside her belly. “I love you,” he whispered back, looking into her eyes as he said it, as each stroke inside only fueled her longing. “So much.”

“Please,” she said weakly. Please fuck me. Please marry me. Please spend the rest of your life with me.

“You sure about this?”

She knew what he meant. It was her parents’ house. It was her old childhood bathroom. But it was everything that had repressed her all her life, until he came along. Hell yes, she was sure about it. “I am.” She undulated against his hand, ready to climb him if he didn’t do something soon, if he didn’t give her more, if he didn’t get the hell inside her.

It was the only assurance he needed. His eyes darkened in the way that stole her breath. “You’re so goddamn perfect,” he rasped, his hand curling hard behind her neck and jerking her mouth to his. “So fucking perfect.”


As you can see from the excerpt, Brian has an interesting piercing, as does his best friend Ghost who stars in my newest release, Leave Me Breathless. I’ve seen a lot of “pierced peen” debate around the internet since the new book came out, so what do you think? Male genital piercings…hot or not? Would it freak you out or turn you on?

While you discuss, I’ll just stare at this guy and pretend he has one. 🙂
