{Excerpt Reveal} Sloth

RELEASE DATE: February 25, 2015

I whirl around, because I need to go now. Need to run.

He grabs my arms, snatching me around to face him, holding me in front of him. Holding me still as he tries to tell me things I never want to hear.

“Stop it! Shut up! Shut up, Kellan! Fuck you!” He pulls me closer, and I slap his face.

The sound echoes through the foyer. His smooth, tanned check stains brilliant crimson.

He doesn’t move a muscle. Doesn’t even blink as I look at him for what I know will be the last time.

I’m sorry. His lips move silently. I don’t care. I can’t. His secrets ruined my life. He ruined my life!

If I live to be hundred, my heart will never be the same.

Note: Sloth is the first in my new Sinful Secrets series. Each intense, erotic story is inspired by a sin, and centered around a life-altering secret. Each “sin” stands on its own, so they don’t have to be read in order. After Sloth, I’m writing Murder. Between these two, I’m releasing a stand alone: a more traditional romance called The Boy Next Door.

sloth teaser 3

Excerpt

I feel his arm weave underneath my shawl, the weight of his wide palm as his hand spreads over my thigh. His fingers burn through the cotton of my leggings, then drift to the crease between my legs.

I grip his shoulder. “Kellan…”

I clench my teeth as he settles his fingertips on me, tracing my most intimate curves as if he’s learning braille.

His mouth strokes toward the collar of my shirt.

I grip the solid muscle of his shoulder. “I can’t.”

His thumb strokes the line of my lips. His fingers part them; he’s working his way inside, teasing against the fabric of my leggings.

With the hand still between my legs, he wraps his other arm around me and he pulls me onto his lap. The arm that’s not across my belly, reaching down between my legs, is holding onto my waist. He shifts his hips, spreading his legs, and tightens the arm around my chest, holding me against him as his hard length presses against my backside.

The cotton of my leggings is wet and pliant. The pressure of his fingers is just right, making me want to lift my hips, making me bite back screams.

“Kellan…I can’t—”

“Tell me ‘no,’ Cleo.”

He rocks himself against my backside, peeling down the waist of my leggings so he can reach inside. His palm brushes my mound. His fingers find their mark. He parts and strokes once, down toward my center. His finger smears my slickness, and I start to quiver.

“It’s okay…” he rumbles. “Focus on my fingers.”

I remind myself to think on his words later: whether it would ever be possible to relax around him. Then I’m trembling again. Lost.

He rolls his fingers through my moisture, spreads my lips, and glides down me, skating…skating. Then he’s dipping down and curving. His fingertip is pushing into me. He adds another, shoves them deep.

I groan and buck against him.

“That’s right.”

He shifts his hips, so his huge cock pushes harder against my backside.

“Cleo… You’re so warm inside…so tight.” His fingers wriggle deeper. I let my legs fall open. I can’t help it. Every muscle in my body trembles as his lips caress my ear.

With his fingers pushed deep into me, he glides his thumb over my clit.

I can feel the outline of him pressed against my ass: the long, thick shaft; the plump, round head.

I can feel his fingers curl inside me.

“Ahhhhh.” I don’t mean to make a sound, but there it is. A moan spills out, turning the air around us into honey.

“You like getting finger-fucked,” he growls. “You love it.”

His thumb glides up and down my slit, then rolls around my swollen clit. I rock my hips, taking his fingers deeper into me; pushing my ass back against his hardness.

“What if I rub a little faster here?” His thumb drags, heavy and slick, over my swollen nub. “What if I quit teasing you,” his low voice whispers, “and try something like this?”

He bends his wrist a little, and I can feel another finger stretch me. “You’re so full…” He pushes slowly in. “Your pussy’s stuffed.”

“Oh…”

“I can feel how tight you are,” he whispers in my ear. “How much I’m stretching you.”

He’s right. I’m full. So full. I feel both paralyzed and shocked. Like I’m gripping a live wire.

“Kellan!”

His thick fingers have begun to pump: shoving in, then dragging slowly out.

I arch my back. “Oh Jesus. Please…”

His thumb, encircling my clit, is deft and slick. I rock mindlessly against him.

“So full…”

He pulls his fingers almost out, the tips of them only just inside…teasing. I clench, wanting him deeper.

“Say my name,” he orders.

“Kellan,” I pant.

All three fingers thrust at once. My pleasure squirts against his expert hand.

“Deeper.” My voice cracks.

He slides out a little. Strokes back in.

His thumb is playing in my moisture, painting my clit. My throbbing clit.

His fingers stroke against my walls, making me dizzy.

“You want my cock inside you. You can’t take much more. You’re so tight, Cleo. So greedy. When I stroke over your clit, I can feel how slick and swollen you are. Your cunt is so tight around my fingers, I can barely move them.”

As if to demonstrate, his fingers surge and writhe.

I groan and arch my back. I’m gripping his arms. Wrapping my feet around his calves. I throw my head back, panting.

Hansel #4 by Ella James

hansel 4 front cover

Hansel.

Gretel.

They were captives who shared a wall, and cut a hole in it so they could hold each other’s hands. Until he killed their captor, Mother. Then he disappeared, and as the world swooped in to save the Children locked away in Mother’s house, the girl called Gretel became…lost. No breadcrumbs.

Finding Hansel, years later, is the shock of Leah McKenzie’s adult life. Finding out how far she’ll go for him – that’s no surprise.

Leah’s given Hansel – Lucas, he says it is – every piece of herself. And he’s been both cruel and kind.

What they share is dangerous.

What they feel is dark.

Their history is twisted.

Their hearts already broken.

And that’s before the secrets are revealed.

Excerpt

My pulse quickens as I see a long lump on the bed farthest from where I’m standing.

For a moment, I think I hear him talking in his sleep.

For a moment, I think of sliding under the covers with him, just to enjoy the irony. We’re sleeping with a wall between us tonight, but instead of a hole he sawed, there’s a door he left propped open. For once, we can actually reach each other.

But he said he didn’t want your company.

I exercise my will power and tip-toe slowly around the hotel bed, so I’m standing right beside his sleeping form.

At least I think he’s sleeping.

His cheek is pressed against the pillow, and his unhurt hand is curled into a fist up near his chin.

I’m fighting the urge to touch him, battling the forbidden desire to lean down close enough so I can brush my lips over his damp hair. From where I’m standing, I can smell the shampoo he used. It’s fruity; sweet. It’s so at odds with his big, rugged body. As if to make me want him more, he shifts his hips a little, and the sheet covering his chest slips down, revealing huge shoulders, smooth, hard pecs, and the upper portion of his incredible abs.

Oh my.

That’s a lot of muscle there.

I take a step back, feeling exhilarated because he’s beautiful, and I’m a bad, bad girl for sneaking in to watch him sleep.

That’s when his hand shoots out and grabs my wrist.

I let out a little cry as he jerks me toward the bed. Then he’s sitting up. His hands close around my waist and I’m dragged atop his sheet-covered lap. He strokes up from my hips, over my sides, and over my bare shoulders, tickling my neck before he gets a firm grip on my face.

“What did I tell you,” he hisses, “about coming into my room?”

 Blurb

Red & Wolfe (Part One)

When Sarah “Red” Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she’s brokenhearted. Worse than that? She’s broke. Her boyfriend recently left her – for a tatted-up hottie with a dick – so she’s stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there’s no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.

James Wolfe is not Red’s grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won’t take “no” for an answer, and he doesn’t mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him – and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym “W.”

Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of “W.”

Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.

Red & wolfe teaser

Excerpt

“Red?” I push her gown down a little further and close my mouth over her breast, working her nipple with my lips. Caressing it with my tongue. I’m rewarded by a soft moan that goes straight to my cock. I need to be inside her, despite knowing I don’t have the time.

I pull the covers down and slide my hand up her shin, then up her thigh. She’s warm from sleep. Her skin feels like burnished velvet. My fingers brush her pussy and she lifts her hips. She wants it. I love the way she always wants it.

“Race.”

I love the way she says my name: a mew.

“I’m going to fuck you with my fingers,” I say, leaning near her face. “Then you’ll go to sleep again.”

A dreamy smile floats over her lips. She nods a little, pressing her head into the pillow.

I slide a finger into her. She’s hot and tight, softer than silk. I can feel her clench as I pump into her. She’s wet this morning. So fucking slick. I stroke in and out, painting her pussy, using my fingertip to smooth warm lines around her swollen clit.

I’m rewarded by her crying out.

“Say my name.”

I still my hand. I can hear my blood rush in my ears. Race. Say Race.

Her hands grab at my wrist. “Race.”

I allow myself a brief grin. It’s undiluted satisfaction. She knows – or at least suspects – I’m James Wolfe, but she’s still in my bed.

“Say ‘Race, please.’ I like to hear you beg.” I push another finger into her. Her body quivers. “I like to feel you jump.”

I stretch her with a third finger and slide my thumb over her clit. I’m moving slow. So slow.

“Race, oh God – yes. Please.”

“That’s right, sweetheart.”
