Feature Friday: Stormchild

By Nicole

Do you like short, serial style romance novels? If so, you must check out STORMCHILD, the first book in the Pacific Passion series.
FBpost quote stormchild
Firm muscles were everywhere. In his arms, his thighs, his body. The simple fact their bodies touched made a shiver trace up her spine and goose bumps rise on her skin.
He laughed softly. “Cold?” The whisper tickled her ear, as he brushed his lips against the lobe. A hint of moisture adhered as he licked and a brief shudder shook her from head to toe. “I can warm you up. If you’re interested…”
The game in front of them had resumed. Laurin was grateful for a moment’s distraction. Oh damn, oh damn, oh damn. She had to decide, and now. Did she want to go off with this stranger, as delectable as he seemed? Tomorrow morning she headed to the next of her one-month teaching assignments in another settlement. He was obviously an orca shifter returning from the outside world.
She’d never taken advantage of the sexual favors offered by the People. After spending the past two years traveling from settlement to settlement along the Pacific Inside Passage, all the tribes knew she taught the children to the best of her abilities and otherwise stayed strictly alone. Even the oversexed otter folk hadn’t managed to convince her to play around, although they had come the closest to tempting her.
Until now

Feature Friday: Laird Wolf

By Nicole

Do you love all things Scotland? How about wolfies? Then you must read the wolf in the kilt!
FBpost Lwolf quote
     She gazed up into sky-blue eyes, and suddenly her rapid heartbeat wasn’t from the adrenaline rush, or fear. His gaze dropped to her lips, and she found herself holding her breath. Waiting. Wanting.
     His eyes shimmered, a hint of his wolf’s silver colouring visible before vanishing completely, but as confusing as that was, she was more focused on the connection between them. On the heavy weight of his hips, on his muscular thighs pushing between hers. On the thickening length of his erection pressing against her belly.
     She expected to be bombarded with an emotional overload from him, but the only thing attacking her system was sheer outright lust. And given the strange circumstances, she wasn’t about to look the gift wolf in the mouth.
     Damon swore softly then met her halfway as they both dove into a kiss marked by more enthusiasm than finesse.

Feature Friday: Rocky Mountain Freedom

By Nicole

Do you like reading about non-traditional couples? How about a committed menage? If so, you must read ROCKY MOUNTAIN FREEDOM!
RM Freedom
A minute later? Maybe two—she’d lost all track of time—Cassidy nuzzled her cheek softly, slowing his touch. “Fucking amazing.”
Another kiss, this time Travis, his lips next to her ear. “You okay, baby?”
She made herself nod. “Uh-huh.”
Even though she felt like a bowl of jelly, getting her jollies wasn’t the end of the evening. She twisted toward Travis. “You’re being an ass and leaving Cassidy hanging.”
Travis laughed. “He hasn’t been hanging since the minute you started working on that damn ice cream cone, woman.”
“So?” she demanded. He wasn’t stupid. He knew what she was asking.
“We’re taking care of you first, that’s all,” Cassidy insisted.
“God, the two of you are impossible.” She wiggled out from under them far enough to sit up, looking around to find the deck of cards. Seated naked, she ignored their grins as she shuffled a couple of times then slammed a card on the table in front of each of them. She flipped hers over to show an ace, then grinned at Travis. “Get Cassidy off. Now.”
He exchanged an amused look with Cassidy. “I hope you’re enjoying ordering me around, because it’s not happening again for a long, long time.”
