Hello and welcome to the Live, Love, Read Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop. I'm going to chat about my inspiration today and in particular inspiration from music and things I watch on TV.
Firstly a FREEBIE for you. I adore the TV show Strike Back and in particular the character Damian Scott. He's a tough soldier, fights for justice but he's also one hot lover and he's always at it! I decided to create my own sexy Damian in the story Secret Servicing and you can grab it for FREE in the Brit Babes anthology Sexy Just Walked Into Town - all links HERE.
I also get very inspired by music and one such song I became hooked on lately was This Night by Black Lab.
The words and the gravelly tone of the song led me to write a whole novel called Rule Breaker which will be out in November from Totally Bound. I adore this new cover I've just got for it, the female leads looks so defiant about her love for Miller, the ultimate bad boy!
This Night isn't the only song that's inspired a novel. U2's classic With Or Without You was also an important part of my USA Today Recommended Read of 2013 - Breathe You In.
Back Cover Information
Soul-aching desire was only the first layer of emotion around a secret I had to keep for all of time.
If the road to heaven starts in hell, then I was ready to start climbing my way out and Ruben Strong was the man to accompany me. With his devastating good looks, seductively sexy charm and lust for adrenaline, he was sure to make it a sensual and erotic experience as well as one to re-awake the passionate, throw-caution-to-the-wind woman I’d once been.
I’d given Ruben something, though, without him realizing, and that gift had come from the man I’d loved before. But I couldn’t tell Ruben. I had to keep that a tight secret even on the nights our naked bodies wound together, sought out pleasure and hit the dizzy heights of ecstasy—because Ruben had my husband’s heart, literally, and that heart was still in love with me, so it seemed, and now I was in love with Ruben.
Emotions tangled with bliss and fears were locked away as I surrendered to the touch of Ruben’s hands, the taste of his skin and the sounds of his pleasure. I couldn’t deny that Ruben had brought me back to life the same way I had him, and there was no way I was giving up that feeling, not for anyone.
I have yet another freebie for you now, Caught on Camera Part One. Caught on Camera was also inspired by a song, Demons by Imagine Dragons. I loved the words to this and how it shows that everyone has something they're fighting inside.
Caught on Camera is a fun serial though despite it's more serious undertones as it's about a couple of guys making a gay porn movie in Las Vegas called Slippery Slots. If MM is your thing then grab the first book (for free) then pick up the others in the serial. All are fine as standalone reads but if you put them together they make up one seriously sexy novel
And finally, if FSOG gets you all in a fluster then check out my new 5* BDSM novel In Expert Hands. I ADORE the movie 9 1/2 Weeks but I'm always so sad that it ends the way it does - check out this lovely montage of scenes I found on You Tube.
So I decided that my hero, Kane Ward, who stars in In Expert Hands would be much more up front about his Dominant side, and that he'd show the woman who has stolen his heart what it is that he wants from her, teach her about his lifestyle and then allow her to make her choices about staying or leaving. Of course it's not all plain sailing but it was great fun to watch Imogen learn all about BDSM and knowing she was in expert hands as she travelled her journey of discovery made it all the more delicious. - only available from Amazon / Amazon UK
