Friday Flames is going country!

Yee-Haw! The Flames are fanning hotter than a habanero in the deep fryer!

Before you post your smokin' hot excerpt, please enjoy a taste from my guest Nikki Lynn Barrett and her book Baby Stetson.

Baby Stetson
Love and Music in Texas, Book One 

In small Texas towns, strangers come and go...

Left in a Stetson hat, on the steps of the local bed and breakfast, Avery Callimer came into the world on a wing and a prayer. Raised by loving adoptive parents, she's never lacked for love...only the knowledge of her past.

By day she works the Inn, but by night...Avery comes alive as lead singer in a band. Life was good...stable, until new guests blew into town. 

Some strangers come with secrets and lies.

Lucas Bennett is one such stranger. Drifting from one mess to another has left him jaded. Doesn't matter the dramas are never his doing. Giving it one last shot to make a fresh start lands him Harmony's Echo, Texas and smack dab in front of the tantalizing Avery.

Despite his best efforts to ignore the burn Avery's ignited within, he's intent to keep his distance. Secrets have followed him. Secrets he doesn't want Avery to know.

Each time they're near the other things heat up like a brushfire on a dry Texas prairie.

But maybe, after the dust settles and the smoke clears, love can bloom with a fresh start.


“You’re beautiful, Avery Callimer,” Lucas noted softly, tracing the tips of his fingers over her naval, up her stomach to the front of her bra.  Avery shivered at the effect.  “I want you.”  To prove it, Lucas positioned himself closer to her, pushing his erection into her pelvis.  “And this time, if you’ll have me, I’ll do much better and last a lot longer.” 

Avery moaned and undressed faster than she ever had before.  Lucas turned the jets on.  Within seconds the water rolled around, bubbles forming at the edges and in the middle of the tub.  It looked so inviting! 

Sex in a hot tub.  That would be another first for her.  Avery was about to step in the tub with Lucas when she remembered.  “Oh!  My bracelet.  I don’t want to wear it in the water.  I’d be afraid of losing it.”  Lucas unclasped the bracelet and handed it to her.  Avery placed it on the counter and hurried to join him in the tub.  The hot water felt so good!  Avery lowered herself into the tub, her back leaning against one of the jets.  Lucas cupped his hands and tossed a large handful of bubbles in her hair.  Water splashed at her face.  

“Lucas!” she sputtered, splashing back.  He caught her hand mid-splash. 

“I’ve got you now.”  He knelt before her, trailing kisses up her arm, to her neck.  Lucas let go of her hands and instead cupped a breast. 

Yes you do.  In the palm of your amazing hands. 

A cry rippled from Avery’s throat when Lucas dipped his head to suckle her breast.  She arched her back, and  the  pressure  of  the  jet  stream  slammed right in her lower back, only driving her need and desire for him higher.  Lucas lifted his head just for a second and focused his dark eyes on her, filled with the most desire she’d ever seen.  Avery took that moment to strike.  She reached for him, pulling his face to hers for a kiss.  He tasted so divine, and he matched her kisses with the same intent. 

“I never felt so much until you, Avery,” Lucas mumbled between kisses.  “I feel alive, thanks to you.” 

Avery said nothing.  Instead, she cupped Lucas’s face in her hands.  She could only stare at that sexy face for so long until she buried her face in his chest.  “I don’t know what to say to that.” 

“I don’t need you to say anything, I just felt like you should know.”  Lucas cradled her head, his strong arms keeping her secure as he held her tight.  “I’m falling for you, Avery.” 

Had she heard him right?  Did he really say what she thought he did?  Avery lifted her face to meet his gaze.
“I need you, Avery.”  Lucas’s voice cracked, thick with emotion.  His arms tightened around her.  “I want to make love to you so bad.  I want to feel everything with you, Avery.” 

Lucas had so much emotion tonight.  His words, his actions lit a fire within her that could possibly never be put out.  Avery ignored any slight reservations she held about getting this involved with him again and reached for him.  Avery guided Lucas’s cock to the entrance of her vagina.  Slowly, Lucas entered her.  Immediately, Avery cried out with pleasure.  She was about to explode.  The water, the feel of Lucas’s hands running all over her body and the way he moved in and out slowly, he was going to drive her to desperate measures. 

Lucas’s lips met hers once again, his teeth nipping at her bottom lip lightly.  She groaned beneath him.  “Are you comfortable?  Is this okay?” 

“It’s perfect, Lucas.  Everything is perfect,” Avery whispered.  And it was.  He was so passionate, catering to her every need, want and desire.  There was no denying the look in his eyes, in his touch.  Lucas had come alive with her.  Away went his reserved attitude, instead replaced by a man who no doubt would give his all to her. 

She wrapped an arm around his neck and drew his face closer.  With her other hand, she ran it through his hair as he thrust faster, deeper into her.  Their bodies molded into one, the water splashing over the edge of the tub. 

“You’re perfect.  How could you get any more perfect?” Lucas muttered, pulling back to stare deeply into her eyes.

  7. This sexcerpt is taken from my soon to be released novel, Prophecy's Child.

    Before joining Katherine on the bed, Kal stared at her beauty. Her sex glistened with her arousal, letting him know she was as turned on as he. He yearned for another taste of her honey, but if he indulged, he’d surely explode. And he wanted to come while buried deep inside her.

    She lifted her arms to him. “I’ve waited ten years for this. Please don’t make me wait any longer.”

    Kal eased himself over her, and she enveloped him in her embrace. He hooked an arm under her left knee and pushed her leg up to her chest, exposing her more. The aroma of her desire made his head swim. Pushed passed all reasoning, he rubbed the tip of his penis over her slick folds. The head found her opening and slipped inside.

    Her eyes closed and her lips parted.

    He inched in, then retreated. Her sexy moans filled the air adding more fuel to his raging desire. With another thrust, he entered her further. “You’re so tight,” he said through gritted teeth. He withdrew. The sweet friction sent his nerves buzzing and his balls tightened. “I want you so bad—you make me burn so hot.”

    “More,” she panted in his ear.

    One more powerful thrust and her damp heat surround him to the hilt. He stopped. The blinding pleasure of being sheathed in her core was the heaven he’d longed for—the heaven he’d craved.

    She writhed under him. “You feel so big.” Her head kicked back. His gaze latched onto her throat and the pulse racing under her skin.

    Snap, went his self-control. He pounded in and out of her wetness.

    He was inside her—this had to be a dream. But her scent, her tight sex, the incredible, maddening friction were better than any dream.

    The pressure in his balls increased. His cock thickened to the point of pain. “God damn, Katherine. You’re exquisite.” He nuzzled her neck, seeking out her banging pulse. Gently, he sucked at her flesh, then bit down. The sharp points of his teeth penetrated, and a hot spurt of blood filled his mouth. He swallowed and groaned. The sweet taste and power of her blood
    zipped through him like an electrical shock.

    Pleasure grew, taking him higher and hotter than ever before. Scents, sounds and the feel of their damp skin intensified. With greedy pulls, he drank her in. He longed for this moment to last, but his need couldn’t be harnessed.

    Katherine stiffened. Her back bowed off the bed, and her inner muscles clenched and released. Clenched and released. “Yes, yes, I’m coming.”

  8. Wonderful Excerpt and MY kind of book! It looks so sweet and HOT! Since we're vistin' Texas? Let's pop on over to the Stud Ranch in Victoria...From the Velvet Series: Crushed Velvet
    His smile was dazzling and his electric eyes bore into hers. “I’m gonna show you a unique phenomenon, female.”
    Female? Kanda vaguely wondered at this word being thrown around. Was it a joke? A safe word? Before she could form the words to ask, he surprised her again.
    With ease, he grabbed her waist and raised her up from the water.
    Her breath caught in her throat as he held her high and hoisted there for a long moment.
    Wade’s eyes wandered from her flushing face, down along her water-streamed neck, pausing at her heaving, plentiful breasts with her erected pink nipples gleaming in the sunlight. “It’s called…” He lowered her further while keeping her gaze locked with his, then sat her straight down onto his erection. “Fire in the water.”
    “Oooh…” she cooed breathlessly as he filled her completely. Yep, he could light the matches just anywhere he pleased all right. I’m just roastin’ on a spit, a ringer turnin’ in the flames.
    Wade bit at his lip as if it felt too good to him too and then he raised her hips up and slowly back down. “The friction builds…” He repeated the motion again but with a more rapid thrusting.
    Sweet honey-sugah ice tea! Kanda’s head dropped back; the erotic wet sliding was too much pleasure.
    Wade repeated the motion, then lowered his mouth to her exposed nipple, latching on.
    Kanda’s body was now on fire. Her torso rippled with the heat from his mouth while her insides were filled and heated from his friction building.
    Lifting his mouth away, he watched her with a smoldering intensity as she squirmed with need. Then, he latched onto the other nipple and propelled her once again over his thick, throbbing cock.
    This flamin’ ride in the water is gonna end me! Her body couldn’t take anymore and she grew rigid from the strain of an unexpected orgasm. She never knew what an orgasm was before, but Lord howdy, did she ever know now! It felt like she was bursting with erotic heat, burning alive and loving every minute of the searing.
    Wade held her onto his hard tool and kept her there while his hands grabbed a hold of her lush butt cheeks and he squeezed.
    The squeezing seemed to enhance her climax and she gasped for air. The full feeling was the most satisfying sensation too. Like she was whole for the first time in her life, but also like she was splitting apart with some upheaval of emotions. It was like nothing she ever dreamed of. Colors floated in front of her eyes again as the water whirled around her, and the sun seemed to blind her. I’m gonna die! I’m gonna perish right here!

    1. Cowboys and their "tools". Thank God they know how to use 'em! Yee-Haw!!! Thank you for another scorchin' hot excerpt! I love Leanore Elliott books!! Your Velvet series is seriously steamy.
