by Eden Bradley

The island always knows what you need…

Miranda lives in paradise— the exclusive Eden resort, the ultimate in fantasy retreats.
Roan, the resort’s dungeon consultant, lives part-time on the island and full-time in the past.
When the sexy Dominant and the sultry pastry chef both receive one of the island’s mysterious invitations they spend a sizzling week together in the dungeon suite. They’re left breathless, wanting more… and hopelessly falling.

PLEASURE POINT-Blurb & Excerpts


Facebook party: Sept 16th & 17th!




EXCERPT:
Miranda pulled in a long, slow breath. She couldn’t figure out how much of her hammering heart was nerves and how much was relief—it was all a jumbled mess inside her head. No, that wasn’t entirely true. Because she knew in mind and body the need she felt. For release. For catharsis. For him. She simply had no idea how she was going to feel about it once it was over.  But it was time to stop running.
She’d been doing just that for too damn long. And now she was being presented with the perfect situation to help her overcome her past and move forward: a stunning stranger who had been vetted by Vardalos. Whoever her mysterious employer was, whatever he was, everything that happened on Eden went the way it was supposed to. It was well known that the resort had never had a single complaint. She could trust this—Vardalos, the island, Roan—as much as she could trust anything.

And Jesus, Roan… He was so intense and gorgeous and commanding, yet she felt pain deep within him at the same time—the pain that gave them a common ground beyond the kink. It made her feel as if he truly could understand her and that was a sort of safety net in itself.

“Miranda.”

Pulled out of her musing, she looked up and found his glittering green gaze locked on hers, making her tremble. God, she was attracted to this man.

“Yes?”

He put a hand out, lifted his chin a fraction of an inch when she didn’t respond and she knew to put her hand in his.

“We begin now. For the last time, tell me you want this. That you feel ready. Safe.”
“Yes. All of it.”

Certainty flooded her, along with the heated rush of blood through her limbs, her breasts, her sex. She squeezed her thighs together.

This man was going to touch her. To kiss her. To play her.
Oh yes.

“Then come with me now,” he said, rising to his feet.

Her mind was emptying out, the world fading away as he led her across the room. He stopped in front of an enormous bondage frame made of sleekly black-painted metal.

“Roan. I feel…at a loss. It’s been so long. Five years. Suddenly it feels like a very long time. Like a century.”

He smoothed a hand over the back of her neck and her entire body wanted to sway, to bow into his palm.

“Don’t worry. You don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to decide anything. I will do everything in my power to intuit what you need, to ask you to tell me if I have any doubt. But I usually know. I’m not being cocky. I’m being truthful. Because my objective here is to meet my need by meeting yours. There’s a sort of simple yet exquisite synchronicity in my handling it all. That’s the beauty here. Well, aside from you.” He leaned in and brushed his lips over her hair, murmured, “Have I told you how beautiful you are, Miranda? If not, it was a terrible oversight on my part. Because I think you are exquisite, and it makes me want to do everything for you. And to you. You don’t need to say anything, to think of a response. You don’t need to think of anything. Simply do as I say and focus on what you feel. Can you do that for me, beautiful girl?”

She nodded, swallowing hard past the lump of emotion and desire clogging her throat. Trying to swallow down the flashing images of Daryn. Being with him at the club in Paris that was his favorite.  Everything a little too damn French for her tastes, but she’d been so eager to please him it hadn’t mattered. And now this man was saying this was for her. “Yes, Roan.”

This was really happening. Now. Her legs began to shake again.

“Excellent. I want you to stand very still for me. I’m going to undress you.”

There wasn’t even a moment’s pause before he moved behind her and quickly lowered the zipper on her dress. He smoothed the straps from her shoulders, letting the material slide down her body. And every moment seemed to move in slow motion, with her aware of every single small sound and sensation—the slip and fall of the fabric, the air playing over her skin, the rhythm of her own breathing. Of his. And God, the heat of his hands on her body. His grip was firm on her calves as he helped her step out of the dress, leaving her in nothing but her high black heels, her black lace bra and bikini panties.
He slipped his fingertips over her shoulders, then his hand flattened on her stomach and desire trembled through her, pooling inside her, making her panties wet. When was the last time a man had touched her like this?

She tensed when he slid down her bra strap, some small part of her still fighting what she knew she needed. Wanted.

His mouth was right next to her ear, his big body closing in behind her, making her feel oddly trapped and ridiculously turned on all at the same time. “Roan…”

“It’s okay, my beauty,” he told her, his English accent stronger than ever. “I expected a little panic from you. A little fight, which I rather like. And I am willing to go through that with you.” He came around to stand in front of her, tipping her chin until her gaze met his. “To a point.”

Jennifer Lowery's MAXIMUM RISK Blog Tour







MAXIMUM RISK
Wolff Securities, Book #1



It should have been a simple rescue mission…

Retired Pararescueman, Quinn Wolff, wrote the book on how to stay alive during a mission when he founded Wolff Securities, an elite private sector security firm. When he fast-ropes down to save missing humanitarian aid worker, Avery Marks, in the remote mountains of Azbakastan he isn’t prepared for the brave, stubborn woman who challenges the rules he wrote in order to protect her.

But when it comes to matters of the heart nothing is simple…

Avery Marks learned a long time ago to take care of herself, but when her convoy is attacked, her friends and coworkers murdered, she has to rely on the aid of intensely capable and handsome, Quinn Wolff to get her safely out of the country. His skills keep her alive, but his kisses put her in danger. In danger of losing her heart. That’s a risk she can’t take ever again.

Excerpt:
Copyright © 2014 Jennifer Lowery

Quinn sat back on his haunches and scrubbed a hand down his face. Avery slept soundly. He wanted to tend her other injuries, but sleep would heal her body faster than anything he could do.

Escape and evasion would be slow going with her injured feet. Without boots to protect them, it would be agony for Avery. Even with boots, walking would be difficult. Running, out of the question. He would carry her.

Quietly, he packed up the supplies and sat down a few feet away from where Avery slept. He snapped off the penlight, his NVGs next to him in case he needed them before his eyes adjusted to the dark.

Avery whimpered. Seconds later, a stifled scream.

Quinn repositioned to where she lay and put a hand on her shoulder.

She flinched and tried to scoot away. “Please. No more,” she moaned.

A nightmare. Instead of waking her, he stretched out on the ground and pulled her into his arms. The last thing he wanted was to wake her and make her remember. Bad enough she couldn’t escape her torment even in sleep.

He wrapped one arm around her waist, using his other arm as a pillow. She lashed out, her nostrils flaring as she drew in deep, gasping breaths.

“Avery, it’s Quinn.”

“PJ,” she murmured and instantly settled down. Her body relaxed and little by little her breathing slowed.

Quinn rested his chin on top of her head. More protective urges surged through him and he shifted a little closer.

“What did they do to you, Avery Marks?” he murmured.

A.M. Griffin's LOVER CLAIMED Blog Tour







LOVER CLAIMED
Dark Wolf Enterprises, #2



When Meisha comes home and finds a strange man in her kitchen, she does what any sensible person would do. She beats the crap out of him first, then asks questions after. When he explains her best friend is in mortal danger, Meisha knows the whole mess—including a recent murder and the threats on her friend’s life—may be her fault, and she’s determined to get to the bottom of it. And no sexy stranger is going to stop her.

Lajos Farkas isn’t expecting to meet a spitfire, martial artist when he’s on a mission to figure out who’s stealing from Dark Wolf Enterprises, and he certainly doesn’t expect her to insist on butting in on his investigation. But getting rid of Meisha is seemingly impossible, and when his wolf decides she’s his life-mate, suddenly he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her close and grow old with her.

If they can just stay alive long enough to make that possible.

DARK WOLF ENTERPRISES
Dark Wolf Enterprises, #1



**Dark Wolf Enterprises (book 1) can be found in the Brought To His Knees boxed set.**

Murder, mayhem and imprinting with a hot wolf shifter… And they say being an accountant is boring.

The big break Trudi Hollander’s small accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.

And then there are the assassins who can jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…
Kristof has no intention of giving in to his inner wolf and claiming Trudi. She’s human. Too fragile to withstand being a shifter’s mate. But the need to protect her is stronger than his resolve, and his desire is more powerful yet. He’ll fight with everything he has to keep her safe, both from those who would hurt her, and from himself.

Hello folks *waves*

For those who don’t know me or have never read any of my books, I write about hunky, oversized aliens, alien invasions and I’ve just added sexy shifters to my repertoire. If you do know me you’ll notice right off the bat that I’ve switched up the theme I had going on, sci-fi and all things alien. Change is good don’t you think? LOL.

I started writing the first book in the Dark Wolf Enterprises series (also titled Dark Wolf Enterprises) in May of last year, but I found I was stuck with the plot. I really didn’t know where I wanted to go with the main characters; Kristof and Trudy. I had this intrinsic plot in my head of all the things they would do and all the trouble they would get into. But if you don’t know, a writer that tries to force their characters to do something they don’t want to ends up being a very frustrated writer. Basically I was at a total standstill with them. They were always in the back of my mind, in this same situation, but I wanted—no I needed for them to get past this point so that they could get into all kinds of mayhem. No go.

It wasn’t until I needed a story for inclusion into the Brought To His Knees box-set that I decided to revisit them and their story. That’s when it hit me. I couldn’t make them go any further because they didn’t want to go through the additional drama and mess that I had planned for them. They wanted to get over the issue of him being a wolf-shifter and her being human and be together. Once I let go of my personal issues and just let them be them the story line flowed.

Dark Wolf Enterprises is a multi-million dollar investment company based out of Marquette, Michigan. Marquette is in the Upper Peninsula and has an abundance of rural land, cold weather and easy living. The perfect place for a wolf pack. Oh , yeah, that’s right, Dark Wolf Enterprises is a company owned and operated by a wolf shifter pack. The owners are Andras Farkas, the CEO and Alpha, Kristof the CFO and second oldest and Lajos head of security and youngest brother, who they affectionately call the “pup”. There’s also a younger sister, Kaitlin, but we’ll learn more about her later (maybe in her own book!). J

In the debut novella, the action starts immediately. Someone is embezzling millions of dollars from Dark Wolf Enterprises. The brothers can’t figure out who is doing it but determine that’s it’s in inside job. Convinced that the only way to catch whoever is behind this and stop their account from drying out, they hire Hollander Accounting, a human firm who has no connection or ties to the shifter world. What Kristof hadn’t planned on what that whoever was behind the embezzlement found out about Trudy and Hollander Accounting and will stop at nothing to get her off their tail—even if it means murder.

While the first story follow Kristof and Trudy as they figure out their growing attraction and love for each other while trying to stay alive. The second story, Lover Claimed picks up where Lajos and Kristof have separated at Trudy’s house. In book two, Lajos and Trudy’s best friend, Meisha take the battle to Miami where they find the shifters who have been hired to kill Trudy. Meisha will do anything to bring them down, even risk her own life while Lajos will do anything to keep his mate safe.

While the first three novellas in this story will focus on the embezzlement and the three brothers’ stories, I plan to continue on and go deeper into the shifter and paranormal world. I gave a hint that there are also vamps and werewolves in this world. Who knows, one day they might end up working for Dark Wolf Enterprises too.

Happy reading!
