#BlackFriday Deal - 99cents Erotic Fight for Love and Country in Naked Rebel @AnitaPhilmar

Enjoyed writing this adventure, sex, power and the fight to be who you were born to be.

Blurb -

A spy that prefers to work alone, Nick Royster’s assignment is turned upside down when his superiors sends him a personal companion. Not appreciating the need to watch someone else’s back, he attends a dinner of Salsar’s inner group. Only to learn, he has to sacrifice Rane to get the information he needs to end the war.

Rane knows the important of winning. Her family slaughtered by Salsar, this is her homeland and she plans to do whatever it takes to win her peoples’ freedom.

With everything on the line, can these two have any future together or does love and war equal heartache? 


“Are you all right?” He grasped her elbow and guided her to the stone platform.
She sank down on the shrine and gathered her red cloak around her before offering up a special prayer. “Thank you.”
“No problem. I should have made sure you ate more before we came out for a walk.” Nick’s voice beside her drew her back to the present.
“I’m, uh, fine.” Rane couldn’t tell him the real reason behind her sudden, weakened state. The trees embodied her connection to this land, and she silently wept over the loss of her family and friends in a pointless war for power.
Grief consumed her, and she lowered her head to hide her emotions from Nick. He wouldn’t understand her need for revenge. He hadn’t lost everything he believed in to a man like Salzar. Otherwise, Nick would’ve killed him long ago.
An arm circled her shoulders, and Nick pulled her up against his chest. “Don’t worry just because you’re in over your head. I’m not going to let anything happen to you.”
She lifted her head. “What? I’m not in over my head. I asked for this assignment.”
He blinked as if surprised by her outburst. “Why would you do that? This is probably the most dangerous place you could be in this war.”
“Yes, and it’s my people who are dying because of the tyrannical rule of Emperor Salzar.”
“What? When did he become Emperor?” His grip on her arm tightened.
“About a year ago,” Rane barked and jerked herself free of his hold, her hips hitting the hard edge of the altar. “Because you live here you probably haven’t heard of the atrocities he’s performed against my people.”
Nick turned and stared down the path leading through the forest. “I have no doubt. The man is cruel.”
The small action of Nick’s jaw jutting out like he was clenching his teeth exemplified his feelings for Salzar. Lines circled his mouth, and he curled his hands into fists.
“And you hate him?” The idea thrilled her. Perhaps, she could count on him to help her with her plan.
“That goes without saying, but it doesn’t change the reason for us being here. The object is to find out the location of the nustru purification plant so we can destroy the place and cripple his armies.” Nick studied her with narrowing eyes. “You have to hide your feelings for the man or you won’t be able to pull off your job as my companion. We’re invited to his mansion tomorrow night.”
“You mean the king’s mansion? Salzar invited us to visit him there?” Rane couldn’t believe she’d be allowed back into her home. As the youngest daughter of the king, she’d only escaped because Salzar had mistaken her as a servant’s child and had released her with the rest of the domestic help.

“Yes, and I’m not sure what he has in mind.” Nick placed his hand over hers. The concern in his eyes alerted her to a potential problem. “His inner circle doesn’t discuss anything that happens at the mansion, but rumors have spread about some of the games he likes to play with his guests.”

A #NewRelease from @NonaRaines - Her Kind of Man

Her Kind of Man by Nona Raines

During the day, Roy Girard works with truckers. It's a macho environment where a man is judged by how tough he is. And everyone knows Roy as one of the toughest.
On his own time Roy helps mentor young people who are LGBT, and cares about them as if they were his own. He's in love with Venetia, a trans woman.
He's careful to keep his nine-to-five completely separate from his private life. He knows his work buddies wouldn't understand. And he doesn't want Venetia exposed to their crude, narrow-minded views. It's his job to protect her.
But when his two worlds collide, he has to make a choice. In trying to protect the woman he loves, he asks for more than she can give.  In his need to keep her safe, he risks pushing her out of his life forever.
Her Kind of Man is available at:

“You know, I’ve been thinking…”
“Always a dangerous activity,” Venetia quipped.
“Ha-ha. Come here.” Roy grabbed her and pulled her down onto his lap. What a relief to have the workday over, to just chill with his lady at her place. “Seriously. I’ve been thinking about getting back into driving.”
Venetia flicked a strand of hair behind her ear, surprise washing over her beautiful face. Shit, every time he looked at her, it struck him how lucky he was. “Really? What brought this about?” she asked.
Discomfort made him squirm, but he covered by settling her more firmly on his thighs. What brought it about? The article from this morning’s newspaper, for one. Bill’s stupid comments. And his own worry and fear, growing stronger each day he remained in that community of macho assholes. The community he used to be part of, feel at home in. But he’d grown beyond it now, because of Travis and Venetia and SPECTRUM.
He wouldn’t share his fears with her. It was his job to protect her. Let him do the worrying. “Well, it’d be more money, for one thing.”
“Yes, but a lot more travel. I thought you left over-the-road driving so you could settle down.”
“Yeah, sure, I’ve given it a try.” He shrugged. “But I’m getting kind of itchy, a little bored. Maybe it’s time for a change.”
“Itchy?” Her beautiful brown eyes widened and seemed to darken with concern. “Is your job the only thing you’re bored with?”
He blinked. “What do you mean?”
She loosened his arms from her waist and stood, then sat in another chair, putting space between them. “I know it’s not easy, Roy. Being with me.”
“What’re you talking about?” He closed the gap between them, perching on the arm of her chair. Never mind he was such a lug he’d probably tip them both onto the floor. “Being with you is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
She lifted her head to gaze at him, her expression only growing sadder. “Is it the guys at work? Do they give you a hard time because of me?”
He went still. He kept his work life and his private life totally separate. Bill and a couple of other coworkers had met Venetia, though Roy had never meant for their paths to cross. He and Vee had been bowling at the Lucky Lanes when they ran into the guys. None of them knew she was trans, and none of them knew about his involvement with SPECTRUM. And that was how he meant to keep it.

A #‎ScintillatingSunday‬ - With a Naked Rebel by @AnitaPhilmar #ASMSG

This is a hop that shares embodies the theme of"scintillating".

Naked Rebel

A spy that prefers to work alone, Nick Royster’s assignment is turned upside down when his superiors sends him a personal companion.

With everything on the line, can these two have any future together or does love and war equal heartache?  


Rane grinned and lifted her hands to do his bidding. The flimsy lace separated easily with a light tug. Rosy pink nipples burst from the confines and peaked into tight little berries.
He groaned at the sight of her reclining back on his pillow.
In one swift move, she sat upright and shifted to the side of the bed. “Would you like me to undress you?”

The idea of her hands caressing his body had his head nodding in agreement. “Why don’t you start with my boots, then you can move up from there?”

Hearts and Heroes Boxed Set + a #HolidayRecipe By Lyn O'Farrell

The holidays are almost upon us, which means lots of opportunities to overeat! Holiday potlucks are a staple of the season, and if you’re looking for an easy recipe, I have one to share. Like me, it’s a little sweet and a little tart, fairly low-calorie, dairy free, nut free and gluten free. (Unless you doctor it up, that is.)

Lyndi's Cranberry-Blueberry Delight

1 14 oz. can of Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 package of fresh small blueberries (about 4 oz.)
1 cup of golden raisins

Mix, chill and serve. That's it!

The recipe serves 8-10 ladies. (The attached photo doesn't reflect the full recipe. It's what is left over after a couple of days of snacking on it.) I’ve also spread it on turkey sandwiches in lieu of regular cranberry sauce.

Since it's so simple, it's easy to experiment. Add nuts for crunch or sweeten to taste, if it's too tart. I'm thinking about adding some of those little marshmallows next time for color and sweetness.

And if you’re looking for a bargain boxed set for holiday reading, may I suggest Hearts and Heroes?

What do a cowboy, a biker, a pilot, a P.I. and a race-car driver have in common? They are the heroes of the new Hearts and Heroes Boxed Set of Five Contemporary Romances.

Books included:
On the run… and right into a cowboy’s arms.
Stalked by an ex-boyfriend, Tori Slater escapes to the family’s homestead cabin in Wyoming where she meets the property’s caretaker. An ex-cop, Logan McNely wants a solitary life so he can forget his past, but finds he’s now protecting this intriguing woman. To save Tori, he has to save himself first before they can have a future together.
She's thirty, single and on a husband hunt and her bad boy neighbor is definitely not on her list!
Hallie Fortune wanted to marry a safe, boy-next-door type of man. Her real neighbor, bad boy, ex-Marine, single-parent, Cody Brock, would never do. But suddenly, every time she had a date, Cody was there--at her house, at the restaurant, even at the grocery store! If Hallie didn't know better, she'd think Cody was sabotaging her husband hunt. And bringing his baby daughter along as an accomplice.
THAT WILDER MAN by Gillian Doyle
Max is back to save his hometown from a flood, only to be confronted by his past and the woman who betrayed him.
As teenagers, Max "Wildman" Wilder and his girlfriend Liza Jane had raised their share of hell--in town and in bed. Then Liza Jane betrayed him. Now richer and wiser, Max has come home. But he had no intention of giving Liza Jane another chance to break his heart.
Going undercover can change a man in unexpected ways...
Concerned about nerdy Simon Primes' total lack of confidence, scientist Ernestine St. Bennett is determined to enhance his masculinity--and thus his social ease--by applying the principles used in her studies of fish. Little does Ernie know Simon is really Sam Pierce in disguise...and that no enhancement is needed!
WORTH THE RISK by Lyn O'Farrell
A publicity-shy librarian falls for a sexy single dad with a scandalous past, but is love Worth the Risk?
Children's librarian Amanda Lloyd values privacy above all else… until she meets a sexy single dad with a scandalous past.
Ex-racer Mitch Delaney’s life has been plastered across the tabloids more than once. But he believes that anything worth doing is worth a risk, and he wants Amanda in his life. Can he convince her to take a chance on love?

HotWired by @AnitaPhilmar #Futuristic #Erotica #ASMSG

Blurb -

Suzi Hotwired for each other... When Ross Dixon is kidnapped from his office, along with the sexy lawyer who'd been busting his balls over a deal that should have been a walk in the park, he wakes to find a devotion chip surgically implanted in his brain. If that isn't bad enough, the chip, designed to trigger emotional reactions between him and the woman lying next to him, is working overtime on his libido.

Mistaken for Ross's flavor of the month, Kayla Michaels, a 22nd century lawyer, doesn't have a problem spending time in Ross's bed--or over his desk--but she wants no part in the romantic feelings the chip is provoking. She's been down that road before and ended up burned.

Kayla and Ross struggle to find answers while coming to terms with the constant lust sizzling between them, but along the way each wonders if the emotions are real or just a side effect of being hotwired.


The sight of her grandfather’s vintage motorcycle warmed her heart. The shiny chrome had a thin layer of dust, but leather-covered handgrips called her forward. A birthday present when she turned fourteen, the bike had freed her from the schedule of the local trolley.
Kayla caressed the length of the black seat and sighed. In her younger days, the thrill of riding her bike with the rhythm of the road racing between her legs almost qualified as good sex. Her thoughts jumped to Ross. Penetration from his cock added more to the event than a stimulating vibration of her clit.
“I have to think about something other than screwing around with Ross Dixon,” she grumbled and twisted off the cap to the bio-fuel tank. After locating a fuel can, she poured a mixture of her father’s soybean mush into the reservoir of the bio-converter.
Ready to go, she threw a leg over the seat and started the engine. The roar fed her desire for freedom as she raced down the lane for the dying town of Grizzly. But it couldn’t satisfy her desire for Ross Dixon.
