Stirred

Blurb

Victoria’s always been in control of her life. Always made the right decisions. She’s always stayed on the straight and narrow. 
Until now.
She shouldn’t have even risked being seen in a seedy male strip club, but as the night spins out of control, the temptation of a fling with a sinfully hot male stripper is too much to resist. 
She should stay away. That’s what the old Victoria would have done. But the way he looks at her – the way he touches her – she can’t say no. Something about letting this forbidden man claim her innocent body feels so right.
She could ruin her career, ruin her family’s reputation – but she can’t help herself. 
She’s hooked. She wants to be ruined.Bradley knows that Victoria’s out of his league. She’s a corporate tax attorney, and the daughter of a prominent man. 
There’s no way she’s going to go for a guy like him, a guy who does filthy things on stage in a smoky nightclub after dark.
But he doesn’t care. She’s going to be his. She just doesn’t know it yet.

This is a 60,000+ word standalone novel, with sizzling goodness, no cheating, no cliffhangers, and an HEA.

Excerpt

Bradley interrupted her train of thought. “What do you say to going out for dinner? Just you and me – no crowd like this to drown us out.” His eyes told her he had more than dinner in mind. “One-time offer. You won’t forget it, and you most certainly will not regret it, I promise,” he whispered in her ear.
Before he pulled away, he nipped lightly at her neck with his firm lips. A tingling sensation traveled down her body from her neck to her core, and her body responded to his provocation with lust. His scent mesmerized her. It was a mix of woodsy, spicy, salty maleness. Just the kind of scent she loved enveloping her between the sheets.
She was so tempted to say yes, to scream yes! But her cynical side wondered what quality of man she was likely to meet at a pickup joint like a club. Besides, she was still not over how arrogant he had acted earlier. That body, though – it was to die for. She could just imagine the ways in which he could manhandle her – all parts of her.
“I don’t know, I’m really busy with work these days.” She didn’t know why she said that. Usually, she had no problem just giving an outright “no” – with no beating around the bush. “It’d be hard to make the time.”
He didn’t say a thing, but asked one of the bartenders for a pen and napkin and scribbled something down.
“Here. Call me if you change your mind.” He got up, but before he left her side he placed a hand on the small of her back, leaned in, and said, “I’ll give you the hottest night of your life. I can tell you’re a wild woman and if I’m wrong, well, I can make you one.” He gave her another smile, showing off his straight white teeth, set the napkin down on the counter in front of her, and disappeared into the crowd.
She spun her head around to follow him with her eyes, but he was gone.
Wow. A warmth spread across her cheeks. She wasn’t used to such assertiveness, and he had put it all out there, with a cockiness and self-assured confidence that were hallmarks of his type. The type that knew what he wanted and did everything in his power to get it.
She picked up the note and turned it right side up. It was a phone number. She considered throwing it across the bar, but the heat swelling in her when she thought of him told her she needed to keep it. And use it. She folded it up neatly and tucked it in her wallet.

PG Excerpt 1:

Understanding Keith’s message—he’d wanted to put her mind at ease with regard to the children so that she could focus on submitting to him—she lowered her gaze. “Can I have ten minutes to put my bag away and freshen up?”
“Yes. I set out what I want you to wear.” His voice washed through her senses, overpowering her with peace and excitement.
“Thank you.” Briefcase in hand, she turned to follow his instructions.
“Kitty Kat.”
The unspoken order halted her. She turned back to him. “Yes?”
“I want a kiss.”
Closing the distance she lifted her face. He caressed her cheek with one hand and wrapped the other around her waist to support her lower back, two points of contact only. His lips brushed hers, teasing at a third point. He massaged, a gentle pressure welcoming her home and to her role as his submissive.
Slave to his mastery, she sighed into it, dropping her briefcase and lifting her arms to twine them around his neck, and she pressed her chest to his. He deepened the kiss, plunging his tongue deep to taste and stab. The hand on her cheek slid into her hair, and the one on her back lowered to squeeze her ass. She forgot about everything. The stresses of her day fell away as she melted in the face of his demand.
He broke away to trail sucking kisses down her neck, stopping when the collar of her dress shirt got in his way. “Go,” he said. “Take your ten minutes, and then you’re mine.”

PG Excerpt 2:

“Put your dress on. Tell me how you look.”
Though he couldn’t see it, she parked her hand on her hip. “Keith, this is highly inappropriate, and it’s bad luck.” Her pulse raced. Though she thought of the wedding as a formality, she couldn’t help but get a little excited for the actual event.
His husky chuckle crackled through the phone. “I don’t believe in bad luck, and I can’t masturbate to mental images of you in that dress if I don’t know what it looks like.”
Her fake chagrin melted. She whispered her reply. “You want to masturbate to mental images of me in a wedding dress? That’s weird. You have actual pictures of me wearing lingerie.” He also had a picture of her pussy that he refused to delete. Good thing his phone was password and fingerprint protected.
“I like those pictures.” His voice dropped as the Dom in him asserted itself. “But, Kitty Kat, the wedding dress says unequivocally that you belong to me. Nothing is sexier than that.”
Her breath caught at his tone. “You’re such a romantic.”
“How about a picture?”
“Nope.” She smiled as she refused him. “I’m not bending on this. You can’t see my dress before the wedding.”
“At least tell me what the neckline looks like. And how long is the skirt? What are you wearing under it?”
She laughed. “No clues. You’ll have to wait.”
“Tease.”
“A tease would send you pictures of random dresses.”

The Summer of ’71

Blurb

You’re in a foreign country wearing a strapless, full length metallic dress that looks like paint, four inch heels on a cobblestoned street, your eyes are painted black, rhinestones pasted to your lids, you have no money, no plans, and have attached yourself to a rocker who intends to make you his pleasure in exchange for a bed and a semblance of security. He gets arrested and now you’re alone on the street, cannot retrieve your bags, know no one else, don’t speak Italian, the predators start to circle and you’re a piece of fresh meat.

He’s sitting by the fountain, playing his guitar. A young but brilliant American who spends each summer in the rich medieval villa of his aristocratic mother. He stands up for you and fights off the carnivorous Italian men.

Summer of ’71 is a story of hopelessness, resurrection, friendship, infatuation and love. Set against a backdrop of the ancient city of Rome, it’s ruins, monuments, museums and café society, it is the whirlwind romance of a young prodigy, handsome, entitled, brilliant and alone and a down on her luck fashion model, abused, mistreated and desperate for salvation.

The first book in the Art Historian Superhero Series, this story launches the lives of two fascinating people who find happiness and enlightenment in one another. It is always romantic, sometimes erotic, and written with the loving hand of an art historian, sharing the wonders of the ancient city in the turbulent times of the social revolution.

5* Review Quotes

Playing It Cool

PLAYING IT COOL

A Men of Steele Novella

by Zoë Mullins

Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance

When Spencer’s old college roommate offers him a job at Steele Construction, he doesn’t hesitate. Not only does he get to be closer to his sister and her family, he may finally have the chance to repair the rift between himself and his parents.

His parents live only three hours away but it may as well be on Mars as a blizzard moving up the coast has him seeking refuge at The Red Gate Inn. Spencer prides himself on playing it cool, but something about the raven-haired innkeeper has him overheated.

As a single working mom, Gina didn’t get much time to herself. With her mom and daughter off to Florida for a week, and the inn she owns closed for the holidays, she is looking forward to some me time. Then it started to snow. In good conscience she couldn’t turn away her brother’s newest employee when he needed shelter from the storm, but her guest has her feeling anything but professional.

It may be cold outside but things are heating up at the Inn.

He backed her up until her bum hit the counter. He was crowding her, but he wasn’t actually touching her. He was staring at her. She saw his nostrils flare a little as he took in a deep breath. She needed to do that too. Breathe. “What are you doing?”

“Waiting for my good sense to take over and tell me it’s a bad idea to seduce my boss’s baby sister.

“Is that what you think you have to do? Seduce me?” When had her voice gotten so husky and teasing? She had pretty much invited him to have his way with her, and most of her senses were saying ‘yippee’.

“You tell me.” His lips brushed across her cheek, and his hands slid past her waist to brace the countertop behind her.

“What are you going to do?” It wasn’t a serious question. She knew exactly what he hoped to do. She hoped he’d do it too. Soon. If his kisses earlier had been anything to go by, and they had her weak-kneed, then she was in for a very pleasant evening.

He pressed his body against her, and she was reminded of the dreams that had plagued her last night. The ache between her thighs was no product of her imagination. It was very real. She wanted him, wanted this.

“You know what I want.” He brought his lips to hers, and slid his hands up her back. He threaded one hand through her hair, holding her tightly, just where he wanted her. She groaned as her mouth parted for his tongue, and she placed her hands against his chest. She couldn’t remember when kissing had been this good. He tasted like heaven. Even better than the pumpkin spice lattes she was addicted to.

An addiction, she thought. That’s what he is, or, at least what he might become. There was something about his gentle control that made her hips squirm, and she never squirmed. He wrapped one large hand around her waist and pulled her tight against him. There was no doubting that he wanted her.

Invitation to Play

AmazonB&NKoboGoodreads

Deacon has never been the jealous type. Sharing his sub was an integral part of their relationship, especially before they were married. It’s been a year since they’ve invited another to play with them, but then Deacon and Sherri meet Kai, the intriguing ex-Air Force Captain turned tattoo artist.

Kai didn’t care if people thought he was gay, but having his father – the Colonel – shame him publicly for it was more than Kai could take. He moved across the country to start an honest life. He didn’t expect that life would include a new relationship.

Kai isn’t sure where he fits into Deacon and Sherri’s relationship – they didn’t need a bisexual Dom with a chip on his shoulder… or did they?

Reader Advisory: Grab a glass of wine, sit back and relax. This story has two hot Doms and their pampered sub -tonight no one is going to bed unsatisfied. Graphic sexual language and scenes are to be expected. (BDSM, MMF and MM scenes)

WTF

Life was never meant to be easy, right?

Well, it’s true! especially for me.

I hadn’t had the best start to life, shithead parents whose abuse still haunted me, a job that I loved – but didn’t seem to be going anywhere fast, and a best friend who was about to pop out a baby – which rattled some skeletons in my own past.

But, when PC Richard Handcock slapped a parking ticket on my car, that’s when my life got… complicated.

Like WTF complicated.

BOOK 1

FML

My life was like some psychotic mutant cross breed of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary. I worked in a second-hand bookstore and I was a blonde British girl trying to find the love of my life. The only difference was, I had no handsome(ish) Brits after my pudgy British arse, I didn’t smoke like a chimney, but on occasion I did drink like a fish. and yes, my mother did like to send me her off cast clothing that looked like they were right out of the nineteen-forties.
Oh, and I lived in L.A. Movie capital of the world.
It took a twisted turn, however, the day my gay roommate managed to convince me that going in to a movie studio for Extras Casting was a good idea.
If I had known what my life would be like after that fateful day, I would have told him to sod off and cut his bollocks off for dragging my arse out the door.
