For every resolution I make, there are five I break. Here a five that I broke last year:

2. Work out daily
3.  Ride the horses, don't just look at them
4.  Clean something every day
5.  Fill the car up when it hits a quarter tank

In my erotic paranormal/fantasy romance, REMEDY MAKER, Rhycious (the hero) makes a resolution to find a cure for his love Patience.

Shape-shifting Centaurs and disappearing Wood Nymphs create an alluring story filled with sensual moments and heart-stopping action.

Nominated for BEST FANTASY ROMANCE OF 2012 by the Paranormal Romance Guild.

Remedy Maker is on sale!

Normally priced at $7.99, the hop sale price is $3.99 for a limited time.
Pick up your copy today!

I write a combination of Sensual and Erotic (not erotica) romance and combine this with Paranormal and Fantasy. 

Here’s an excerpt from Remedy Maker:

Her moisture—pure heaven. Nectar from the gods. A true sign of just how badly she wanted him. 

He wanted her with an obsession so savage he fought to keep it under control. He'd never risk hurting or frightening her. So generous, she saved his life with her gentle and compassionate ways. Whatever Patience did, he would see that she never suffered or wanted again. 

The protective thought nearly made him stop. He feared for her life with his traumatic mental flare-ups and didn't want to hurt her. Just the same, he couldn't make himself quit her either. In truth, he wanted to plunge into her, plant himself deep inside and allow friction to wash over them in a sensuous tide. 

Bathed and coated in her moist heat, his hips thrusted out of control. She whimpered against his mouth, her fingernails cutting into his back with magnificent ferocity. With every forward stroke, his rubbed his pubic hair against her sensitive clit. 

"Lose yourself with me, Polytima. Just let yourself go." 

Damn, she was tight as his fist. As soon as she peaked, he'd let it all go deep inside her. He groaned at the mental image, his swollen cock enormous and heavy as it moved in and out of her.  


"Am I hurting you?" 

"No, but…" Her panting sounded loud in his ear, fueling his desire to take her to flaming heights. 

Hard with need of her, suddenly angry at himself for his many failings, he rammed forward, lifting her hips off the bed with his force. 

She cried out, her inner muscles clenching around him in quickening pulses. Teeth gritted, neck straining, barely the presence of mind to wait for her, to reach the finish line together.  

Gods, she was so blessedly tight around him, it was hard to do. 

He wanted to fuck her hard, make her come again and again, until she couldn't think of anything but him.

If you make a sensual resolution this year, what will it be?

  12. I don't make resolutions because if I fail I'll feel bad.


  13. I love your number three broken resolution! I have no idea why,but it made me laugh.

    I hadn't planned on making any resolutions let alone sensual one, but maybe I should think twice now!

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

  14. i try not to make any resolutions so i dont have to feel bad if and when i break them
    very cool Blog Hop.. Happy New years to all

  15. I dont really make resolutions but I like to live one day at a time. However for a sensual resolution that sounds possible - LOL I think I would like to try role playing in the bed room, haven't done that yet - LOL May act out a scene I read about in one of the hot books I read - ha ha.

    Happy New Years

  16. Don't have many resolutions just looking forward to a lot of great changes that are happening. I guess if I had to pick a resolution it would be to read more. Thank you for the blog hop and awesome prizes
    Cwill030104 at yahoo dot com

  17. I guess we have to read it to see if Rhycious accomplished his goal? LOL I didn't make resolutions this year. I set a couple of small goals and I will re-evaluate in a couple of months. I am not setting myself up for failure this way. If I were to make a sensual resolution (I guess it isn't that sensual) but it would be to have more sex, with my boyfriend of course and not just my imaginary book boyfriends. Buhahahahaha

    Happy New Year and much continued success,

  18. I never keep my resolutions! Happy New Year.


  19. I do not have any sensual resolution.. I have a few small ones that will be going on this year.. Start Insanity back up :).. read 130 books.. go back to school for my BA..

    JamieToddMiller at aol dot com

  20. A sensual resolution. Now I like the sound of that. lots of candle light and massages I believe given weekly should be a good one to obtain. Thanks for this thought :)
