Happy Halloween! Trick or treat!

Well hi there on this beautiful All Hallow’s Eve!

At least, it’s beautiful in my little corner of the world, weather wise anyway. It might be a little chilly, but Trick or Treat on Saturday was fantastic. Kids didn’t have to bundle at all.

Back in August I have a nice scene that had to hit the cutting room floor.  And this month I’ll be giving an excerpt from the book and also buy links on Amazon, and B&N Finally!

I’ve gotten great feedback from it, and it pleases me immensely.

Destiny is a lovechild born from my love of True Blood and Harry Potter. That’s what it started out as, Fan Fiction crossover. Some of that still lingers, though I have made a brand new world to drop my test subjects…. I mean characters in. 

Bridgid has a bit of myself in her, her sass and the way she loves - with her entire being; body, mind, and soul. Roman I took just a teensy bit of Alcide, and Remus Lupin, but then threw in a lot of my own Werewolf - my fiance. ;) Benjamin was completely inspired - at first- by first season Bill Compton. Then I watched Being Human, and OMG. Aidan. That's who I see him as now, it had been Stephen Moyer, but Sam Witwer is so much hotter. LOL!!! 

Speaking of hot... 



I'm about to make y'all sweat like a sinner in church!  The following is decidedly NSFW! 



Bridgid looked to Kasey, whose eyes had suddenly turned dangerously dark, her normal baby blues so very close to black, her long, red hair curling up into ringlets. She was smelling Bridgid’s anger. “Oh, love,” she started, and shook her head. “You are so angry.”
Bridgid looked away from everyone and set her bottle of rum down. “Yeah, well it’s been since the full moon since I’ve had sex…”
“Ahh!” Deanna yelled out, covering her ears.
“Shut up,” Bridgid said, glaring across the room at her sister.
Deanna smirked and shrugged. “Look, I’m sorry, but the fact that Benjamin was after me and you’re my sister, that talk kinda grosses me out.”
“You work in a sex toy store,” Bryn said, smirking over her bottle of tequila.
“Yes, but not one my sister comes into.”
“When you’re working!” Bridgid fired back. She purposefully paid attention to when Deanna was in the vicinity of the shop because she knew damn well that her sister was a juvenile. Gales of laughter began to echo in the room, and Deanna shook her head.
“What did you mean by that, Bridge?” Cassidy asked again once the laughter died down.
Bridgid sighed and shook her head. “What I want…is for Ben and Roman to fix their friendship so we can move on. They’re both so focused on the past that they are ignoring their present.”
“Good luck,” Deanna said, taking another long drink straight from her bottle. She winced a moment and lay back on the floor with a long groan.
Amanda gave Deanna a disgruntled look the Witch barely paid any attention to before she spoke to Bridgid. “Just try out the room, sweetie. You never know what would pop up in there.”
Most of them snickered at that, the fucking juveniles. Bridgid looked over at the door to one of the fantasy rooms for a long minute before she got up and moved over to it. She looked back at all of them once before she picked up a potion near it, gulped it down, and then slipped into the room.
The moment the door shut, a screen lit up in front of her, asking for a setting. Bridgid had to shake her head a moment to focus on the many options before her and chose the woods. She raised an eyebrow at the clothing options, giggling at the dominatrix clothes she found on the list before choosing none. She knew what she wanted.
Only a moment passed and a chair that felt like a dentist’s chair rose up under her, making her comfortable before the potion took effect and she was drawn into the scene. Trees sprouted up around her. A cascading waterfall partially hid a rock ledge behind its cold water, and a slight breeze caught her hair to make it fly over her shoulder.
It was exactly like she remembered it, the Scottish forest where she, Ben, and Roman had hidden after a month of being together. She had left their camp to wash the dirt and grime of their most recent battle off of herself. She shed her clothes and left them farther away from the pool that gathered at the bottom of the waterfall. Bridgid stood on the edge of the water, testing the water with her toes, a shiver running through her at how damned freezing it was before she took a deep breath and plunged in.
The water hit her like a sheet of ice, stealing her breath and making her come up sputtering and gasping for air. She drew air in gasping gulps before she heard the chuckle from the edge of the water. She spun to see Roman there, shirt discarded and jeans undone, the smooth skin leaving nothing to the imagination toward the bulge that rested in the confines of the denim.
“P-P-Professor Sh-Sh-Sheppard!” She could barely breathe in the water, let alone talk, shivers gripping hold of her, making her muscles cramp and clench in protest of the water temperature.
He tilted his head at her, smirking. “You didn’t think it’d be warm, did you?”
She shook her head and moved toward the shallowest part she could get to without revealing herself to him, unsure of exactly what he was doing there. “N-n-no.”
“I have half a mind to make you get out of the water while I’m standing here.”
Her eyes widened, and she shook her head. “I, what?”
Roman crouched to be more at eye level with her and grinned. “You think I didn’t stare at that ass every time you left my classroom, Bridgid? You think I didn’t notice the unbuttoned blouses and prayed to the gods that you would need tutoring even though it would cost me my job? For fuck’s sake, Bridgid, if you don’t know how much my body craves you.”
In the recesses of Bridgid’s present mind, where she knew this was the memory of the first time she and her men had wild, passionate sex in the woods, she still shivered at his words. This was better than anything she could have imagined, and seeing Roman stand to allow his jeans to fall to his ankles and kick them off, leaving his cock standing at attention, ready to plunge into her, still left her wet and wanting.
She’d allowed the memory to flow, but then remembered what Bryn had told her about the room. She could control what happened in there. She could change it, mold it to her perfection. A smile spread on Bridgid’s lips, and she stood, revealing herself to him and walked out of the water, knowing full well her nipples had hardened to rigid peaks, and focused to make the pool warm and inviting. “I do know, Professor Sheppard,” she responded in her best sex kitten voice. The one she had used so many times since it had been just the two of them and they’d played out their little fantasy. “I did it all for you, but now you aren’t the only one I want. Where is Benjamin?”
The wind changed, a slight breeze pushing back toward her, and she felt the presence of her Vampire behind her. “You were right, Roman. She is the Goddess you said she was.”
Yes, those were the same words her Vampire had used when he saw her for the first time. It had been later, Roman had worked her into a fevered pitch, but Bridgid was controlling this damned fantasy this time. Not Fate, not the men. She was.
Bridgid reached up for Roman, wrapping her arm around the back of his neck to draw him down toward her. “I need you.”
His eyes flashed golden, and he gripped hold of her, pulling her tight against his body. His mouth captured hers, his tongue immediately moving into her mouth as he pulled her up into his arms. Bridgid kissed him back earnestly and greedily wrapped her legs around his waist, positioning herself to impale herself on his waiting cock. In one swift movement that still made her gasp upon the intrusion, she slid onto him, moaning into his mouth and immediately began moving over him, working her hips to take exactly what she wanted from him.
Roman growled against her mouth and gripped hold of her hips, moving her over him. He took exactly what he wanted from her as well, quickly working her up into a frenzy. She cried out and pulled away from the kiss, flinging herself back just as she knew Benjamin would be there to catch her, and rested her shoulders against his chest.
The Vampire supported her with his body. One hand moved to cup and squeeze her breast while the other moved to where her body joined with Roman’s and deftly moved his fingertips over her clit. Bridgid screamed out then, exploding into ecstasy. The Witch squeezed her eyes shut as she lost herself in her release and gripped hold of Benjamin’s hair, feeling his lips move to her neck, his teeth playfully scraping against her flesh.
The feeling of his mouth on her was enough to throw her right back up into the height of pleasure. She lifted and dropped her hips in perfect rhythm with Roman, Benjamin’s fingers working at vampiric speeds against her clit, keeping her in an almost perpetual state of euphoria. She finally pulled herself from simply allowing herself to feel and looked up at Roman, meeting his gaze before she smirked and pushed him back away from her with her telekinesis, something she had never done before, and grinned as Benjamin caught her and turned her in his arms.
He lifted her and pinned her back against Roman’s chest before he plunged into her, the coolness of his body quelling the fire that Roman had started within her. It took her a moment to adjust to him, but when he began moving inside of her, he did so as he certainly had not over the full moon. After Benjamin had pulled her from the tub, he seemed to worship her. Slow and passionate lovemaking had happened that night. But what the Vampire was giving to her then was pure, unadulterated lust, and she craved every moment of it.




Now that I’ve melted your screens….
What’s stopping you from going to pick up a copy of Destiny?!

Happy Hallow-Laughing! Celebrate #Samhain #Halloween with Bridget and #MagicMayhemWorld

the-witch-singer-web-sizeThe Witch SingerWitches of Mane Street #1





Curses. Vampires. Skunks. The life of a Witch Singer shouldn’t be this complicated.

After years spent paying off an old debt by working for the vampires, Bridget the Witch Singer receives the opportunity of the lifetime. Solve one vampire’s oops—he turned the wrong person—and she’s a free witch. Desperate to win her freedom, she heads to Assjacket to find the solution to the vampire’s problem and everything goes wrong along the way, including a flat tire, getting sprayed by a skunk and the road trip from hell.

Unfortunately, Martin is no ordinary skunk and his spray is a nervous tick. She does her best to save the beast when her scream accidentally wounds him and springs him from his curse. Good news for Martin, not so good for Bridget who can’t get rid of him. Once in Assjacket, she’s tasked by the BabaYoMama to unite at least two couples and sing at their weddings in order to gain the cure she needs for her freedom.

No problem, right?

Postcard from California

Hi Readers,

I'm Kate Moore, joining Tina and friends at SweetNSexyDivas for the first time today from Mill Valley, California! Where it's raining, perfect weather for a neighborhood gathering of friends.


I've been enjoying the SweetNSexy blog posts with stunning pictures, intriguing ideas, and great writing tips from fellow writers. I hope to add my bit and to meet new readers along the way.

I write Austen-inspired romance set in foggy coastal California towns or along the equally foggy Thames in London. Today I'd like to giveaway one print copy of my recent release--Golden Boy--to a lucky commenter here. I'll announce the winner on my KateMooreAuthor page on Facebook (link below) on Halloween. Just say hello in the comments and let me know what your "rainy day" plans are.



In L.A. land of palm trees and perpetual sunshine, charming trust-fund Golden Boy, Josh Huntington, meets his match in Emma Gray. Emma, a single mom, is living with the consequences of her quest at 17 to meet her birth father, a British rocker. The biggest consequence of that failed attempt to meet her father is Max, her six-year-old-son. 

Emma's keeping it all together--kid, car, job, school, and a grand plan to try again to meet her father when he returns to the U.S. for a reunion concert with his band. Emma never expects that her gorgeous, idle, "trustafarian" landlord Josh will complicate her plans, but from the moment she must rely on him for a bit of babysitting, she begins to discover how irresistible a Golden Boy can be. 

You can learn more about the characters and the story at Austen-inspired romance from Kate Moore or at KateMooreAuthor.

If you'd just like to forget the rain, and lose yourself in Emma and Josh's small beach town, here's a bit of inspiration. Happy to be joining you at SweetNSexyDivas, Kate

Hot New Cowboy! COWBOY TO COMMAND By SABRINA YORK

Get it now on Amazon!

COWBOY TO COMMAND By SABRINA YORK
The second sexy, Stripped Down novel from the author of Stud for Hire.

Just south of Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll find a little ranch where the hot, toned cowboys are ready and eager to take it all off and make your naughtiest fantasies come true...

Satisfaction is the name of the game at the Double S Ranch, where the men are more than willing to play. They come from all walks of life, and each has their own reason for dancing for a lady’s pleasure.

A former Navy SEAL, Brandon Stewart started dancing after an injury in the field put him out of commission. The power he commands when a woman’s eyes are locked on him makes Brandon feel like the man he used to be. But when he meets Porsche, Brandon has never felt more stripped bare.

The spirited beauty needs a handsome fake boyfriend to make another man jealous. But Brandon is determined to prove to Porsche that pretending with him is nothing compared to the real thing...

Read an excerpt!

Dougal scampered around them, chasing dust whorls, but Brandon’s attention was on Porsche’s face. He was loath to let her go. “So, did you and Claire come up with any brilliant ideas?” He wasn’t truly interested, but this was as good a ploy as any to keep her here. For a while longer at least.
Porsche threw back her head and laughed. Her eyes sparkled and her parted lips tantalized him. “No. We got distracted.” She leaned closer. “We often do.”
“What distracted you?”
She pinned an innocent look on her face. “Lisa was making profiteroles.”
“What the hell are profiteroles?”
“Choux à la crème,” she said with a wave of her hand.
He laughed. “Still in the dark.”
“Cream puffs.”
Now that he understood. “I should probably go visit the kitchen.”
“Good luck with that. Claire’s in there. We call her Hooverlips.” 
“That is hardly kind.”
“Maybe not. But true. She does love to eat.”
Dougal spotted another dust whorl and shot off in yet another direction. The leash wound around their legs and they, perforce drew closer. And damn, he loved the feel of her pressing against his chest and groin, her smile, her laugh as she fell against him.
She gazed up into his eyes and said, “I think we’re trapped.”
“I think so too.” But he could hardly complain. Until she tried to wiggle free.
Then again, he did like the wiggling.
They both laughed as they became even more inextricably entwined and then, all of a sudden, Porsche froze. Her gaze, wide and welcoming, snapped to his. “Oh, kiss me now,” she gushed and his heart thumped. She wrapped her arms around his neck and went up on her tiptoes and pursed her lips.
Though he was hardly disinclined, he was surprised. What had incited this sudden and incongruous passion? He stared at her in shock as his body went on point, hummed, trilled with exhilaration and excitement.
“Hurry,” she said. “He’s watching.”
He’s watching.
Well hell. His mood plummeted. He should have realized. He should have expected as much. He was a fool for thinking she suddenly wanted to kiss him.
He was struck with an immediate anger, and at the same time, a scorching determination.
Kiss her?
He’d give her a kiss she would never forget.
He took her cheeks in his hands and tipped her head a bit to the side and stared at her. “Are you ready?” he asked in a whisper.
She blinked. “I…ah…yes.”
But still, he waited, staring at her lips, so full and lush. He’d waited so long to taste her, the anticipation itself was delicious. Slowly, he lowered his head and he brushed his mouth over hers, a tease and nothing more. Then he did it again.
Good God, she was delectable.  Soft, sweet, a velvety heaven. She tasted of sugar and a hint of chocolate with an undertone of…Porsche. He wanted to sink into her. Consume her.
So he did.
He deepened the kiss, investing in it all his desire, his hope, his passion.
And God help him, she responded.
She tightened her hold and pressed against him and made little mewling sounds that set his body on fire.
He leaned into the kiss, bending her back, grasping for all he could reach.
It became a conflagration, a wild storm swirling them both in a savage whirlwind of gargantuan proportions that was—
“Ahem.”
An annoying voice came from his left. Brandon attempted to ignore it.
“Ahem!”
He lifted his head and stared down into Porsche’s eyes. He was gratified that she seemed dazed and boneless. Really gratified when she reached up for another kiss. And that, of course, set him off again as well. He couldn’t get enough.
Not ever.
“Hello? People? That’s good. You can disengage.” Claire—for that was who it was—attempted to pull them apart.
“But Cody’s watching,” Porsche murmured, snuggling in closer.
“He’s gone.”
To Brandon’s disgruntlement, she eased back, still staring into his eyes. “He’s gone,” she whispered.
“I heard,” he said. But he couldn’t resist one more kiss. Just one.
And damn it all to hell. Why hadn’t Cody stayed just a little longer?

Fabulous #fashion from #Outlander from @CeriseDeLand's visit

Recently on a trip to Los Angeles, Mr. DeLand and I went to Hollywood specifically to see the OUTLANDER fashion show at the Paley Center for Media Arts.

This was a Fab.u.lous treat for anyone who adores fashion, the recreation of historical fashion and this stunning TV show.

A series of outfits on mannikins, the display also featured dioramas and reproductions of portions of the set. The most intriguing displays were the digital recreations of sets in which the actors walked!

BUY LINK: Amazon
You must know that there was no tour, no tour guide and no brochure. I thought this a major fault as, many of us who live for historical detail and who drool over the show, would purchase such a reference.

I will tell you, however, that the fashions were the real ones worn by the actors during the second season and that most of them were those of Claire and Jaimie, closely followed by those worn by the Comte de Artois. Much of this gentleman's clothing was featured because it was so elaborately made, reflecting his wealth and status at court and in society. Do note the exquisite lace and the handprinted robe for Claire and for Jaimie. Many of the costumes were hand-made from the actual dying process to the embroidery and painting on the fabric itself. A lovely exhibit, this display ended (sadly) in early August! We could hope they create another one next year–and this time, please do a brochure!

And this is plug for my newest, a box set of my first 3 in my REGENCY ROMPS series, only 99 cents for a limited time! This box set stars a group of men who have worked together, fought together and now, they band together to ensure every man attains the love of the woman he adores.  Don’t miss this exciting collection of three novels!

Gown worn by Claire's French friend, Louise in season 2.
Much of the detail work on the clothes was done, as in the period, by hand.
Here you see the embroidery and lace work.

Much of the detail was exquisite.

Here is the digital representation of King Louis's bedchamber.

Drawings along the walls displayed the original sketches for costumes
as well as designs for rooms and buildings. Here is the costume for Gellis Duncan.

ABOUT WRITING: YOUR ESSENTIAL WRITING MANUAL by Suz deMello (#writing #NaNoPrep @MFRW_ORG)



About writing ABOUT WRITING

Why yet another writing manual? 

Well, it's time to prep for Nano, so I thought...

Hasn’t this ground been covered before, by far more able authors, such as Rita Mae Brown and Stephen King?

Well, yes, but...

Hmm.

Yes, I do quote the above authors liberally in my short little book. But I do add material they don’t have.

Oh yeah? Like what?

There’s some cool stuff on the mythic structure...

Mythic, schmythic. Joseph Campbell and Chris Vogler dealt with all of that stuff.

Yeah, but I offer something slightly different. Read this:

Legacy from the Distant Past

I wrote earlier that this story is hardwired into our consciousness, our bodies, our very cells. Why?

Picture this:

We are asleep in a cave or a den, curled up with our mates, our brothers, our sisters. This is our ordinary world.

Dawn comes, sliding sly fingers into the darkness. We awaken. Hunger and thirst are our call to adventure. Is there a refusal of the call to join the hunt? Perhaps from some pack members—the old, the very young, nursing mothers.

But others are insistent, approaching the alpha of the pack—the mentor—with a demand for food. Those who answer the call leave the safety of the cave—crossing the threshold.

The alpha selects our best fighters, finding allies while rejecting enemies who might take an opportunity to betray him during the excitement—the test—of the hunt.

We form a hunting party and set forth, seeking prey. But our targets are wily and fast. Some may take refuge in a different cave, behind a waterfall, or in a swamp.

Nevertheless, the alpha leads us to the danger, for the pack must eat. This stage of the hunt corresponds to Campbell’s approach to the innermost cave.

We find another dire wolf trying to kill a great beast, perhaps a mastodon. Even the combined efforts of the pack with our new ally aren’t equal to taking the mastodon, which tramples off, dripping blood from wounds we have inflicted. However, we have gained a powerful new hunter. These events are the ordeal and the reward...

Interested yet?

So here it is: ABOUT WRITING... Both of Suz deMello’s famed writing manuals, now in one handy paperback. A perfect gift for any writer!

Here’s what folks said about Plotting and Planning:

Sue has written a concise manual that is valuable for both beginning and seasoned writers. Going to write a book? Read this first!
