NC-17 Excerpt: Huntress

So my latest novel, Huntress, is #FREE this week on #Amazon. It’s kind of timely actually because the media giant unleashed their newest #Kindle device this week, the #KindleVoyage. At only $199 it does almost exactly what your Fire does, but better. I guess. Anyway, we over at the Little Red Hen Romance Coop aka The Love Shack (Tin roof rusted, y’all!) decided to give our darlings some treats to fill up their new, ridiculously expensive devices! In celebration of that, I thought I’d put up a tasty little excerpt from Huntress just for you! If you like it, go download it— it’s FREE!

CAUTION:  The following excerpt is NC-17 and NSFW!!!

Huntress_1

Thalia brushed a gentle hand through his hair, smoothing it back from his pale brow. He stirred a bit but did not wake. She didn’t want to wake him, but the thought of his arms around her again was just too inviting. Leaning closer, she pressed her lips to his forehead and lingered a moment. She loved the taste of his skin. Thalia smiled when he still didn’t wake and began planting kisses along the arch of his neck and down the slope of his shoulder. He growled and rolled to his back, nearly hitting her with his elbow. The muscles along his side were a glorious configuration of living flesh. She couldn’t help but touch him, tracing the lines and trilling her fingertips over each rib. Examining his body this way only made her want to explore further.

Slowly Thalia kissed her way across his chest, pausing to roll her tongue around each flat, dark nipple until it beaded between her lips. With a sneaky glance, she noticed that he was still not awake, though he made a soft, growling sound as she nipped at his skin. “Are you awake, my lord?” she whispered as her lips fluttered across the line of hair below his navel. He only responded with a stretch that allowed the coverlet to slip down, exposing his belly all the way to where the soft line of hair became coarse and wild, just at the base of his cock. She chewed at her lower lip, wondering if she might dare to pull the covers away. Thalia sat up and crawled over him, straddling his thighs then sitting back on his knees. He made no move to stop her, so she slowly pulled at the fabric until he was fully exposed. Her mouth watered. She had been so enthralled with the new sensations he’d wrought upon her last night that she hadn’t really seen him until now.

Bending close, she examined his manhood. Such delicate construction for so crude a purpose. She watched as her breath against it caused a slight twitch that became more noticeable as the ends of her hair swept along the insides of his thighs. Then a single, tentative kiss. The skin was so smooth and Thalia was fascinated by the pulse of blood rushing toward the warmth of her lips. It made her want to kiss him again and again, feeling his sex come to life, waking even as he slept. Finally, she couldn’t help herself and took his cock into her mouth. The size of it was a little overwhelming, and she pulled back, swirling her tongue around the length. When she reached the tip she nibbled lightly and rubbed her tongue against it, collecting the tiny drops of liquid that had already collected there. The flavor had a smoky, bittersweetness that only made her crave it more. Before long, she was devouring him, taking as much of his manhood into her mouth as she could. She wanted to pleasure him as he had pleasured her.

NEW RELEASE: Huntress by Alexandra Christian

Well kids, it’s been a productive year for The Belle.  I know it doesn’t seem like it.  You haven’t seen the name “Alexandra Christian” on anything since last November.  But I have kept busy with Little Red Hen Romance and the anthology of paranormal Sherlock Holmes stories, An Improbable Truth.  But FINALLY, I have a new NOVEL releasing under my own name!  Yes, the chicks over at Little Red Hen thought that dragon porn sounded like a GREAT idea.  No, I’m kidding.  It’s not porn.  In fact, Huntress is a fairly tame mainstream heat level romance with lots of high fantasy action to go with it.  Think Game of Thrones if there was no rape and they actually liked women.  In fact, the main character Thalia is a kickASS heroine.  But I don’t want to give too much away.  Here’s a blurb—

Every girl dreams of a fairy tale prince.       

Thalia is the Huntress, a dragonslayer from a barbarian tribe. But her dreams are haunted by her prince, a dark shadow who whispers delectable taunts in her ears and smells of crushed roses and ash. When she is captured and sacrificed as a symbolic “bride” to the most fearsome dragon she has ever seen, she wants only to escape into the endless dream of death where she and her dark prince can be together forever.

But princes aren’t always what they seem. And neither are dragons.

You can order Huntress NOW from Amazon, but the release is Dec. 1, 2015!  Just in time to fill up those holiday Kindle Fire HDs.  Guys will love the action, gals will love the smoldering sexiness of alpha hero, Malik. That is, if you’re like me and went to see The Hobbit movies just for Smaug.

The Literary Underworld Blog Tour Presents: Jackie Gamber

I am pleased to be a blog stop on the Literary Underworld Blog Tour!  I have been doing conventions with these folks for a couple of years now and every time I meet one of their ranks, I’m impressed by the level of talent and creativity each one of them posesses.  I am honored to be able to host the fantastic Jackie Gamber today as she blogs about what exactly the Underworld is and of course… dragons.

**************

Hello from Memphis, and thank you so much to Lexxx for hosting me for the Literary Underworld blog tour! I love how Lexxx describes her family as The Munsters; that is one of my most beloved shows to this day, and Netflix has brought the opportunity to carry on the dark love of the show to my own kids. Technology is grand.

 

What is the Literary Underworld, you ask? Its a bookstore outside the box, allowing readers to purchase directly from authors. Cutting out the middle men helps authors make more per book than they would otherwise. And more than that, its a way for authors to join together and support each other by sharing the load, spreading the word, and making it happen! Its the reason I‘ve based my series of posts for the tour on the Beatles song. 

 

I came to be a part of the Literary Underworld the way most people discover new things: through friends. Specifically, friends I made through MidSouthCon, a yearly convention in Memphis. There‘s nothing like sharing a crowded, noisy vendors room with fellow writers and genre entrepreneurs for great bonding.

 

As an author, my first love has always been science fiction, fantasy, horror, and the blends of those that make such interesting subgenres. I‘ve published stories as short as flash fiction, as novellas, and novel-length. My current work-in-progress is Book III of the Leland Dragon Series, a fantasy novel for Seventh Star Press, as well as a steampunk fantasy upcoming for New Babel Books. I‘m also a freelance editor. Releasing soon is the Scary Psyches issue I edited for Shroud Magazine.

 

But I think some of my favorite work has come from my awareness and outreach, related to my research and writing about dragons. In my work with FODERP (Friends of Dragon Equality and Rights Protection) I‘ve had wonderful opportunities to meet dragons across the globe, and to learn, and in turn, teach about these magnificent creatures. To CTRL stereotypes, to ALT knowledge, and to DEL specism. I‘ve spoken at conferences, conventions, and meetings for friends of dragons, as well as represented dragons for those who have never had the pleasure of meeting one. Its been an honor to be an ambassador for these magnificent, and so often misunderstood, creatures.

I‘d like to share with you today an excerpt from my presentation Dragonspotters’ Survival Guide, which includes handy tips on what to do when the unimaginable happens: stumbling into the path of a dragon in its natural habitat.

Even the most seasoned wanderer has occasionally come upon a napping, or otherwise preoccupied, dragon. Here‘s what to do if this happens to you.

  1. 1.      Don‘t panic. Remember the dragon is as startled as you are.
  2. 2.      Eye contact is important.  Dragons often judge the character of a person by the length he or she is able to maintain a gaze. The longer your gaze, the less of a threat you will appear to be.
  3. 3.      Empty all food items from your pockets and toss them toward the dragon‘s feet. The last thing you want at this point is for a stray candy bar to smack a timid dragon in the snout and undo the progress you‘ve thus far made.
  4. 4.      Finally, if after these steps the dragon has come to accept your presence, an introduction is in order. Courtesy and manners are always in fashion, and the dragon will respect you for them.

Sure-fire tips for turning a dragon stranger into a buddy!
