Guest Spotlight: KyAnn Waters author of Betrayed Vows

Darah, I’m super excited to be here today. Not only are you one of my besties, but I admire you so much. You are an amazing writer and I’m thrilled be kicking it on your blog today.

And I'm excited to have you here. I can't believe we've never done this before. So let's get started. What's your favorite book you've written?

You know I have a special place in my heart for Theron. His story is Dark Man but he has a major role in all of the Blood Slave books. They are available from Ellora’s Cave, but you can find the ebooks at all online digital book retailers such as Amazon and Nook. Ice Man and Iron Man are in a combo print edition.


http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Y-ciZ_Czpqw/SyHQc-zF8AI/AAAAAAAAAPc/DbdO74l0b7k/S187/darkman_msr.jpgYeah, Theron is definitely one to make all the girls' (and some guys') hearts go thump! Who is the biggest influence on your writing?

Probably not a who, but a what. I love to set the tone with music.

Cool, I'm finding that out lately myself. How did you come up with the title?

Well the title originally started off as Lucky Charm, but my partner in crime, Darah, helped me brainstorm some options and I finally decided on Betrayed Vows.

Oh, right. LOL Well, Landon just doesn't come across as a leprechaun. Do you ever wish that you had an entirely uncreative job, like data entry or working in a factory?

Sometimes I think it would be easier to stay out of the kitchen and snack if I didn’t work in my home office. But truly writing is a perfect fit for me.

Maybe we should invent seat belts for office chairs. :) What is your favorite time of year and why?

Fall, I love crisp mornings and sunny afternoons. I love late fall flowers. I’m usually sick of the hot summer by the time the leaves are changing and I love an evening fire. Just thinking about it makes me wish for fall.

Now for the story.

Everything in Gretchen Booker’s life was as she wanted it. A husband on her terms. Companionship without physical contact. That’s why she married a lifer. Who would’ve thought it would all come to an end after only ten years?

Life on the outside is not as Landon Booker expected. But how can he make a future for himself beyond prison walls when the woman who is supposed to love him wants to see him sent back to the penitentiary.

Crystal Evans isn’t a home wrecker. Landon needs a friend…someone who can help protect him from his conspiring wife. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan.

Yet vows betrayed leave all three with something to lose—Crystal her heart, Landon his freedom, and Gretchen the life she had before.


Excerpt:

Starting at his bare feet, her gaze traveled the contours of his calves, and across the hard planes of his thighs. Try as she might, she couldn’t curb her curiosity. Riding low on his hips, his shorts hinted at what lay beneath. And his abdominals, although they were hidden under his shirt, she’d forever remember how her fingers slid against the corded grooves when they touched in the pool. Meeting her at eye level, his shoulders curved into his chest.

His features darkened as she met his stare. “Before this week all I wanted was for my wife to look at me the way you just did.” He ran his knuckles across her cheek.

“And now?”

Betrayal slammed deep in his gut, but he couldn’t stop. “I prefer eating Lucky Charms with you.” Touching the fire, he was going to burn. Slipping his fingers into her hair, it was soft as silk and smelled of lavender and vanilla. She trembled as he leaned closer and pressed the length of his body to hers. Burying his face in her hair, he breathed deeply.

Crystal sighed and lifted her face. Landon cursed himself as he lowered his mouth to hers. Gently at first, testing the softness and the willingness of her mouth to open under his, he let the essence of her scent penetrate his senses. Arms went around his neck, and then the sweet taste. Tongue against tongue. Body fit to body.

Captive Fantasy sure held me captive!

When I think about the books that have stayed with me over time, Captive Fantasy by L. Rosario is one of them. It grabbed me from the beginning and kept me bound until I was done. A little vampire action mixed with male strippers and evil genius. And Valentino...

Captive Fantasy - Click Image to Close
Seraphina Scala has just confessed she's never had an orgasm and now her friend has the perfect solution?a night spent at Captive Fantasy, a club that guarantees to fulfill every deep, dark, secret desire. Sera would rather admit she's a vampire than join her friend at such a place, but she doesn't, and she finds herself surrounded by ravenous women and drop-dead gorgeous men. One in particular steals her attention...

Valentino was literally created to make fantasies come true. He's used to the eager women who flood into Captive Fantasy every night to take what he offers, but when he meets the shy Sera, he knows he has his work cut out for him. Something about her strikes a chord deep inside, and he soon realizes he wants more than just a breathy thank you for a "job" well done.

Valentino awakens a side of Sera she's kept locked away for nearly three centuries, and now she must confront her past, her present and her future. Doing so won't be so bad with Valentino by her side, but will he want her once he realizes what she really is? Or will his secret be the one thing they cannot overcome?


Excerpt:

“I’ll let you go after you tell me why your friends dragged you here. You aren’t getting married, so what is it then? A bad break up? A bad husband?” He glanced at her left ring finger, but there wasn’t a ring or a mark indicating there ever had been.

Her hand tightened around the doorknob, but she didn’t turn it. “I told you I’d rather not say.”

“But knowing will help me figure out how to behave around you. It might explain why you’re so touchy.”

She shot a glare over her shoulder, and the fire in her eyes made her nearly irresistible. “I am not touchy.”

“Yes, you are.” Most women begged to stay longer, the fact that Sera longed to flee, intrigued the hell out of him.

She let go of the knob and turned to face him. “Fine, Mr. Stubborn, I’ll tell you exactly why I’m here tonight.”

Valentino resisted the urge to hold his breath.

“I made the mistake of telling my friend that I’ve never had an orgasm during sex.”

He admired her ability to say all of that with a straight face and dead-on eye contact. “You’ve had one on your own though?”

“Excuse me?”

“You said, during sex. It implies you’ve had one without sex.”

She shook her head, and the razor cut ends of her hair slapped against her jawline. “I’ve never had one, all right?”

“Of course it’s all right, and not the least bit abnormal.”

She rolled her eyes and tossed her hands in the air. “Oh my God, don’t play Dr. Ruth with me. You don’t look the part.”

Valentino grinned and held out his hand. “I’m not trying to play Dr. Ruth. Come here.”

“No,” she snapped.

He dropped his hand. “I’ll give you an orgasm, Sera, but it would be easier if you let me touch you.”

Her mouth opened and closed, and her eyes narrowed. “Does that mean you can give me one without touching me?”

“Sure.” He did his best to keep his tone casual. No telling how she would react if she realized how eager he was to touch her. “But I’d prefer the traditional way, and you would too, trust me.”

Making The Naughty List: Darah Lace



The authors of Erotic Cravings have spent 8 Days On The Naughty List! And sweet snowballs, what a good time we've had! Tomorrow we'll announce the winner of the grand prize, a $50 gift card to Amazon or B&N, along with the winners of our books. For a chance to win, follow the Rafflecopter instructions. To win a digital copy of Yes, Master, read about my little elf and leave a comment or question about him.


A Naughty Elf

A little elf whispered in my ear, “Don’t hang your stockings by the chimney with care. Put them on, along with those red stilettos, the matching bustier and mini-skirt. Go be naughty!”

I frowned. Me? Wearing an outfit like that? Ha! He must have been drinking too much hot chocolate! I had, which is why that skirt didn’t fit anymore. But wait, that was reality!

Quick, quick, oh, hurry! I dash across the room and grab the nearest vehicle of fantasy!

Yes! I’m off now. And I’m sleek and long and dressed in red leather!

And hells to the yes! The elf is no longer the same elf whispering in my ear. He’s taller, leaner, a pillar of strength and power. And he's dressed in full Dom gear, a flogger in his large, strong sexy hand.

“You’ve been very naughty.” His voice is deep, lusty. His dark gaze strays from the tippy-toe of my red heels to the polished red tip of my fingernails high above my head. My wrists are bound to the wall, the cold metal biting deliciously into my flesh. I’m helpless…his to do with as he wishes.

I lower my head to hide my smile. I know he likes it when I’m bad.

And that’s how easy it is to be naughty, to get lost in a book, a fantasy. I do it whenever I can, whether I’m reading or writing. In my latest release, Tara must let go of the world she knows and submit to the unknown world of BDSM. She’s very, very naughty and loves every minute of it!

Yes, Master

Tara Sherwood never dreamed she’d let a man put her in chains, call her pet and spank her into submission, or that she’d derive pleasure from punishment. But her future hangs in the balance and the choice is simple—walk away, or kneel at the Master’s feet.

A morsel of decadence that will whet your appetite for whips, bondage and a Master of your own.

Excerpt:

A loud pop across the room snapped her head up. The rest of her body jerked but remained immobile, proving the restraints worked and just how vulnerable she was. Oh god, what had she been thinking? She’d never even been spanked before much less whipped.

He was beside her again, a warm hand on her back, smoothing the length of her spine. “Shh, shh, shh.” His palm slid along her hip and over the curve of ass. “It sounds worse than it feels.”

Tara sucked in a deep breath and exhaled slowly. She trusted him. She had to, had to do this.

Something tickled the opposite buttock. It felt like dozens of velvety fingers. No, not fingers. Strands of soft leather. She trembled as it shadowed the path of his hand down one thigh, over her calf and back up again then along her back. The tickling continued down her arms until he finally held it for her to see. And seeing the instrument he planned to use on her helped ease the panic.

Funny, she should have been more afraid, not less. Maybe she wanted this more than she thought.

See, Tara is enjoying herself, living a fantasy. I encourage you—no, I dare you—to find your own little elf, let him whisper in your ear. Then go, be naughty!
