All Fired Up for Seductive Studs & Sirens Hop #lgbt #gay #bloghop #romance #SeductiveSnS

Too much going on these next couple weeks and I'll be out of town, so I probably won't be here for the next Seductive Studs & Sirens. I'll offer up something extra naughty for this week to make up for it *wink*. This is from All Fired Up, my new firefighter and cop story from the Sin City Uniforms series. It just became available on early download at Totally Bound - yay!


Tearing his clothes from his body as quickly as he could, Trent kept his gaze trained on Shawn’s full cock, the flared head slick and red with his desire. It would be in his mouth soon.

Once he was free from the confines of his clothing, he advanced on Shawn. Right as he reached the couch, Shawn moved to stroke his own dick and Trent slapped his hand away.

“Don’t touch. I want every drop that’s there on my tongue.”

“Then give me that.”

Shawn fisted his erection and tugged him forward with it. He wrapped his kiss-swollen lips around the tip, pressing his tongue in the slit. Trent lifted one leg and planted his foot on the sofa cushion next to Shawn. As Shawn lowered his mouth on Trent’s shaft, taking more of him in, Trent placed his hand on the back of Shawn’s head. He was careful not to push on him, only to cradle him.

His ball sac hung low and heavy, swaying as Shawn sucked him. Shawn had been running his hands up and down Trent’s legs as he deep-throated him, but he raised one of them to palm Trent’s nuts, manipulating them as he continued to hungrily eat his leaking dick. Shawn increased his suction, flicking his tongue like mad over his glans every time he reached the tip.

“Oh, God, close…”

Now head on over to these other sexy blogs for more juicy excerpts:

Play Acting (Gin & Jazz 7) Out Now! Roman's Story #gay #historical #romance #roaringtwenties #erotic #excerpt



I have a new series on early download this week, and the ending of another out on general release. Yes - it's time to say farewell to the Gin & Jazz series, which makes me want to cry. I never anticipated how deeply involved with this world I would become. between the Hollywood antics and the roaring twenties - it's been a blast to write. I've mentioned it in guest posts at other blogs, but this series was originally only supposed to be 3 books that told Jack's story. Instead, it has garnered 7 and not only told Jack's story, but several of the supporting character's ones as well. 

(Don't fret though - a spin-off from this series will begin in a couple months. It focuses on The Hampton Road Club which is the sadomasochism club studio chief Vincent Franklin belongs to in Studio Orders. #HardToLetGo)

This final book in the Gin & Jazz series happens a few years down the road from the other books and tells the story of the man everyone loves to hate - silent film star Roman Pasquale. But he's had those years to ruminate on his mistakes and failures. Is he ready to love unconditionally? Playwright Max Vogel is anxious to find out. I'm offering up an extended excerpt that features a very sexy interlude between the two men - yowza. After that, I have the links where you can pick up this rather naughty installment. That Roman is a dirty dog after all *wink*

At last, they were inside the Rolls, their coats covering their laps. They were seated at an appropriate distance from one another, the driver suitably engaged in watching the road. Roman allowed his fingers to carefully travel over to Max’s thigh. He felt him tense and he figured Max was accustomed to being much more discreet than Roman. He started to pull away but Max captured Roman’s hand, pulling it to him then pressing it against his crotch. 

Roman was barely able to suppress a groan. He easily wrapped his fingers around Max’s rigid cock through the pleated dress pants, heat radiating from Max’s sizeable length encased by the loose fabric. He glanced sideways at Max, careful not to move very much. Using his palm to grip Max’s shaft, he allowed only his thumb to stroke and tease the end. Max’s eyes were closed and in the flashes of light from the street lamps Roman could see the muscles tensing in Max’s jaw, the way he kept his lips tightly pressed together as he breathed in and out a bit too rapidly. There was a tremble to Max’s thighs from his obvious attempt not to thrust forward.

Sensing Max might be on the verge of coming, Roman let go of Max’s dick, then ran his hand slowly down Max’s leg to his knee, keeping his touch light and promising. As soon as Roman had loosened his grip on Max’s cock, Max had exhaled loudly, eliciting a brief glance from the driver in the rear-view mirror before the chauffeur darted his eyes forward again. As Roman traced his fingers on Max’s knee, Max reached for him too, doing the same. They continued that way for a few minutes until Max brought his hand to Roman’s and held it, squeezing and caressing with his fingers, Roman responding in kind. Roman turned to Max, smiling, happy. 

They were in some sort of synchronistic dance with one another, their touches conveying what their words couldn’t. It was all very unusual for Roman. He was accustomed to being the aggressor. While he sensed that Max would submit to his carnal demands willingly, it was also apparent that Max would be a lusty and giving lover.

Why can’t this dratted man drive any faster?

He turned his attention back to his sweet Max, amazed at how the ghosting of their fingers on each other’s hands could be so erotic. Forcing himself not to openly stare at Max, Roman kept his eyes toward the front of the car and was relieved to see his apartment building coming into view at last. He gave Max a final squeeze before disentangling himself. A melancholy sigh escaped Max’s lips and Roman wished he could crush him in his arms immediately—that he could be allowed the small joy of expressing his affection in the moment it occurred.

I will have to make it up to him when we’re alone.

Roman closed his eyes and held his breath, waiting for the driver to open their doors, freeing them to escape into the privacy of his home. He was reminded of how uninterested he’d been in the fact that the building was exclusively occupied by only those interested in a partner of the same sex. He had not only become extremely interested, but he was currently rather grateful. Maybe he would send Maude some flowers.

If she doesn’t kill me in my sleep after she finds out about this.

Roman could lie to himself all he wanted that they would be able keep their dalliance a secret, but the power of what was transpiring between him and Max—combined with Maude’s uncanny ability to snoop around his business—would be a complete giveaway. Once they’d escaped the driver’s questioning stare and Roman had sent him on his way, they hurried into the lobby of Roman’s building. It wasn’t very late, only a little after nine, but the elevator was empty when the concierge pulled the gate open. 

The inner doors closed and Roman hit the button for the tenth floor. Dropping both his overcoat and the box of pastries, he then whirled around, grabbed the lapels of Max’s suit jacket then shoved him against the wall. Max’s back hit it hard and his mouth parted in a gasp, his coat falling to the floor as well. Using that as an invitation, Roman clamped his lips onto Max’s and explored his mouth freely. There was no hesitation as Max clutched at Roman’s sleeves, then lowered one hand to grip Roman’s ass cheek, yanking him closer.

They kissed over and over, grinding their steeled erections against one another, their desperate moans increasing in intensity. The creaking gears of the lift became louder as it slowed, nearing the floor of Roman’s apartment. Roman stilled, breathless. He pulled back enough to see Max’s glazed eyes. Grasping Max’s jaw, he held it tight, pressing Max’s lips together until they were forced open with his lower lip jutting out. Roman latched onto it, biting down hard enough to elicit a small cry from Max then scraping his teeth along the sensitive flesh as he let go. 

He stepped away from a breathless and visibly aroused Max, their eyes still locked. Roman dropped his gaze to appreciate his handiwork on Max’s flushed and swollen lip. Max ran his sweet tongue along it slowly, making it shine with moisture. It beckoned to Roman and he whimpered, cursing the fucking elevator for taking so long to come to a complete stop.

Finally it did and Roman reluctantly turned from the sexiest man he’d ever seen to yank the metal accordion style gate open. As unexpectedly passionate as Max was and as needy as Roman was, he didn’t expect their fucking would last long. The evening hadn’t turned into the heartfelt confessional he’d originally planned, but he was perfectly fine with the way things had played out. Max was an unbelievable treasure.

Thankful that no other tenants were in the hall to interrupt their frenzy of desire, Roman retrieved the slightly damaged box of profiteroles he’d dropped on the floor as he’d boarded the elevator and jumped his lover. They both gathered their rumpled coats, Roman chuckling and Max giving him a sly grin.

Oh yes. We were made for one another.

Roman leaned in and pulled Max forcefully to him by his collar and nipped at his delectable lip again. Max laughed, licking Roman’s mouth, then dipping in with his tongue to take small tastes before retreating again.

“Naughty boy.” Roman whispered it in between Max’s exquisite kisses.

“I can be very naughty for you Roman.”

Max took Roman’s mouth some more. After basking in Max’s honeyed flavor for a little longer, Roman reluctantly broke the connection, desperate to get them alone.

“Come along my sweet devil, it’s time that I fuck you.”

Blurb:
Officer Shawn Everly patrols the Strip and one night, fireman Trent Marshall saves him when danger strikes. But it’s still uncertain whether Trent can save himself from getting his heart broken by Shawn.

The party never ends on the Las Vegas strip but neither does the danger. Officer Everly is new to the beat, having recently relocated to Vegas from Los Angeles. Foot patrol on the Strip is a demanding assignment because he’s up close and personal with the public. But what he’d really like to do is get up close and personal with Station 32’s hunky fireman, Trent Marshall.

Trent has been a fireman for over ten years and is dedicated to his job. He’s built tough and is a no-nonsense man of few words. At a local blood drive, Trent meets the handsome new officer on foot patrol but won’t let himself get too close. He’s lost love before when his policeman lover was killed in the line of fire.

During an emergency, Trent’s over-protective instincts kick in when he believes Shawn is in harm’s way. He ends up embarrassing and angering Shawn in front of their fellow officers, which seems as though it will end any hope of Trent having a chance with the young man he can’t push from his mind. Shawn can’t decide whether he wants to punch or kiss Trent. Kissing wins. Once they spend some time together away from the stresses of their jobs, they find that they’re not just compatible—they’re combustible.

But Trent can’t seem to accept that there are hazards that come with working in law enforcement. Right as they’re discovering how much they mean to one another, the danger escalates on the Strip. The underground vigilante group, The Citizens Against Immorality, have raised the stakes. Will Shawn and Trent be their next targets?

Excerpt:


Once Trent held him, he nuzzled the top of his head, brushing his nose in the freshly cleaned damp waves. After lowering him onto the bed, Trent straddled him. Their heated erections were nestled against one another and Trent marveled that they’d been able to make it through the entire showering process without getting each other off, but he was enjoying the anticipation too much to rush it. He noted a slight tremble in Shawn’s body.
                                                                      
“Cold?”

He shook his head. “Excited. Won’t last long.”

“Good. You need your rest.”

Shawn drew his eyebrows together. “What about you?”

“I’ll stroke myself off while I suck you.”

“Like hell you will. I wanna make you come.”

Trent leaned down to take his mouth again, not sure how he would ever get enough of Shawn’s kisses. Yes. He wanted Shawn to make him come. Without breaking the contact of their lips, he dropped to one elbow then took Shawn’s hand and placed it on his needy shaft. The moment Shawn wrapped his fingers around him, he almost shot his load. There’d been too much of a build-up. It had been fun, but he didn’t want to wait anymore. 

He growled into the kiss, pumping his dick into Shawn’s fist. It had been so long since he’d been touched by anyone, since he’d wanted to be touched by anyone. His balls abruptly tightened, the surge of energy in his spine almost startling in its intensity. 

“Oh, God, Shawn.”

He froze, coming over and over on Shawn’s hand, his stomach. He still rested on his elbows, but he dropped his forehead on Shawn’s shoulder. He shuddered when Shawn released his softening member, every nerve alive right under the surface of his skin. His breathing gradually slowed and he lifted his head to gaze into Shawn’s eyes.

“Beautiful.”

He meant it in so many different ways and he was certain Shawn understood. Dipping his chin, he tasted Shawn’s lips without deepening the kiss. He reached between them to rub his cum into Shawn’s belly, stroked the soft hair of his happy trail. He was startled when Shawn pulled away to lick Trent’s seed off his fingers.

“Jesus.” 

Trent had said it barely above a whisper. It was so hot between them, so immediate. Typically, Trent took a while to open up to someone. There were few with whom he’d ever even wished to do such a thing. It seemed as though once he’d decided to give Shawn a chance, he’d dropped every last bit of his resistance—caved in and allowed himself to feel everything.

Hello everyone, and thank you Miss Knight for having me here today. As some of you know, GRL in Chicago is just around the corner. As it’s my first signing, hell my first CON, I’m quite excited and I made myself a list so I don’t forget anything while I’m there. 


Tams To Do list for GRL

1.       Meeting and rooming with Morticia Knight! I finally get to meet Morticia Knight. And the good thing is, we are roomies, so she can’t run away screaming! Bwahahahaaaaaa!!
2.       Putting faces with names! I get to meet several Authors who have helped me along the way to publishing my own books. I think I’m going to be fangirling hard core. I must remember to take a sedative prior to the first meeting.
3.       Meeting my own fans! Opposites has truly been a labor of love for me, and I cannot wait to meet other people that have read, loved and come to care for all these characters as much as I have these past couple years.
4.       Making new friends! I’ll be there to network, but I can’t wait to meet all the people I’ve been chatting with online for years.

6.       See the Sights! I’ve never been to Chicago, so I’m hoping for a little time to see some of the local attractions. My flight doesn’t leave on Monday until later in the afternoon, so perhaps I’ll find my way into town early and play tourist for a few hours.
