Today we have the four fabulous ladies who make up the Marked anthology: Vivian Arend, Lauren Dane, and writing duo Kit Rocha. They are here to share some sexy snippets from their latest collection!
MARKED: Three stories of passion, possession, and ink
Stories can take us from our everyday world into the future, or to places in the current here and now that we’ve never before been. They can show us heat, and passion, and in the case of an anthology, provide more than one trip to a fabulous happily-ever-after.
Kit Rocha, Lauren Dane and Vivian Arend welcome you to MARKED. Three brand new stories we’re thrilled to share with you.
We’re stopping off at some our favorite blogs with some steamy excerpts. Each of us has pulled a snippet from our novella following a chosen theme, to give you a taste of what you’ll find in MARKED. The theme for this post?
Kit Rocha returns to Sector Four in BEYOND TEMPTATION. A promise to a dying friend backfires when Noah Lennox finds that the girl he was supposed to rescue is all grown up–and wearing O’Kane ink. He wants to protect her from the secrets of their past, but she wants him. And an O’Kane woman always gets what she wants.
“Wanna see my piercing?”
He laughed, low and hot, and thrust against her with a slow, circular grind that left her gritting her teeth to hold back a cry. “Later. I’ll get my tongue all over it.”
“Tease.” His eyes were so blue, deeper than the sky but not as dark as ink. She’d never seen the ocean, but maybe it was like this, like tumbling down until all you could feel was–
Holding on to his shoulders didn’t give her enough leverage. She dropped her hands to the small of his back, to the swell of his ass, and swiveled her hips. Pleasure splintered through her at the directness of the contact, at the way he groaned encouragement and watched her face as if he’d never seen anything more perfect.
“Just like that,” he whispered hoarsely, mirroring her movement with perfect precision. “Show me what gets you off.”
Just like that. The words echoed in the buzz in her ears. His voice, rasping and hungry. Sunshine. Her pulse throbbed, hot and low, as she rocked her clit against his cock. Show me.
Take a ROCKY RIDE with New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Vivian Arend as she leads you back to the Six Pack Ranch. Anna Coleman might be the law around Rocky Mountain House, but bad boy Mitch Thompson knows that under the stiff RCMP uniform is a woman with a passion for speed and pleasure that matches his own, and he’s not giving up until she’s his.
She opened her mouth to protest, but he sucked the words from her mouth, kissing her again with the wildness she craved. Distracting her from the fact he’d probably left a print on her skin.
It was too easy to focus on all the other things she was enjoying. The demanding stroke of his tongue, the way he used his entire body when he kissed her, small movements reminding her again and again that they were stark naked and only inches away from being joined.
When he pulled back, his eyes had gone fiery. His dark needs and wild passion clear for her to witness. Maybe the chains he’d tattooed onto his skin were to help him remember something, but her idea of a wild beast being chained and controlled wouldn’t have been inappropriate either.
“Trust me?” he asked again.
Anna breathed out slowly, ignored that part inside that screamed she was being a fool, and nodded.
All That Remains
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Dane takes you into a brand new world in ALL THAT REMAINS. Summer Killian falls fast and hard when Charlie arrives in Paradise Village. But the heat turns all the way up when she learns Charlie is also with Hatch – the man she loved three years before. While she’s not sure she’s cut out for a triad, neither man is going to give her up.
She set him on fire in ways he couldn’t have begun to imagine when he was younger. And the way she responded pushed him. Ha, pushed him. She shoved him. In the heat of that moment between them on her table they’d clicked perfectly.
But he wanted to be sure in the afterglow, she was still all right.
He stood, taking her face in his hands, looking at her for long, quiet moments. “We all right?”
She cocked her head, her eyes lit with mischief and it made him smile. “How do you mean? You didn’t make me come. Afraid I’ll start rumors?” she teased.
