About Academy of Love:
Love smolders and the sex is red hot when Cassianna Baxter leaves behind a glamorous teaching career in Italy to return to her old Alma Mater, Lewiston Academy for Girls as the Deputy Head Mistress. No sooner does she arrive at the Academy than she walks smack into sexy Lawrence Taylor, her first love and ex-lover. He’s been looking for her ever since he was forced to leave her and now that she is back at the Academy he knows he has to win her back. And not just in his bed.

Red Sage Publishing Official Release Date: August 1 2013


“Hello, can I help you?” A deep voice startled them from behind. Cassianna’s chest tightened and a spark shot through her heart. Slowly, she turned toward the voice.
Those sensuous green eyes, that wavy sandy blonde hair. Her heart stopped for a moment.
“Lawrence?” Cassianna squeaked, in a voice that was definitely not her own. His eyes held hers and her body trembled.
“Cassianna?” Lawrence asked, a stunned look on his face.
Silence hung in the air.She had not seen Lawrence in almost twelve years, but there he was before her. His rugged, handsome good looks unchanged. His muscled body evident with his shirtsleeves rolled up, she could see those strong forearms and his adept hands. Oh, what he could do with those hands. She was unable to take her gaze from his. Words would not form in her mouth as she stared at him.
Lawrence stepped forward, extending his hand to Mr. Stevens. “I am pleased to meet you. I’m Lawrence Taylor,” his voice deep and confident, “chairman of the board of trustees for the academy.”
Cassianna’s jaw dropped, but she quickly closed it, struggling to regain her professionalism. She hoped she appeared cool on the outside, inside her mind was racing even faster than her pulsing heart. She tried to center her thoughts; averting her gaze from Lawrence’s.
She struggled with her composure and found her voice. “The Stevens are here for a tour of the school and were just admiring the Equestrian Center,” she said in Penny's direction. She feared that making eye contact with Lawrence would have her completely unglued. “And Penny is keen to join the riding team,” Cassianna stuttered, nodding to the young girl.
“Is that so?” Lawrence smiled encouragingly at Penny. “I’m a bit of a horse man myself.”
That’s an understatement, Cassianna thought, given the hours he’d spent coaching her years ago. And not just in the ring. Lawrence had been a talented and devoted lover, but now was not the time to think about that. She couldn’t help but notice that devastatingly charming grin that hadn’t changed, the way one corner of his mouth raised slightly higher than the other. She knew every nook and cranny of that mouth. A hot flush rushed between her thighs as her eyes lingered on him, remembering just how strong her attraction to him was all those years ago. 

Let's heat up the screen with YOUR excerpts!


  1. Ooh! Great excerpt, Kate! Love the chemistry between your characters. It's gonna be smokin' hot once they are alone together.
    Here's a little ditty from my upcoming Christmas short story, XMAS UNWRAPPED, set for release later in November...

    Mace propelled Allegra down the carpeted corridor until reaching number twelve, thirty-four. She inserted the key card then turned the handle. He held the door wide, allowing her to precede him.
    Subdued lighting from the reading lamp on the wall illuminated a massive room, with an even more massive bed. His cock thumped harder.
    He concentrated on hanging their coats in the closet area by the bathroom, fighting to compose himself. Throwing her down on the bed and ravishing her was not the best way to proceed, no matter what his animalistic side said. He turned. “I told the waitress—”
    And Allegra latched her lips onto his.
    Caught completely unawares, he stumbled against the door. Less than a heartbeat later, he recovered from his shock to plunder her mouth with equal abandon.
    This was light years away from what he expected, not that he cared. Her dueling tongue and back-throat whimpers erased his surprise.
    He gripped her ass cheeks and hoisted her up. He then pivoted so her back was pressed to the door. Her lithe legs wrapped around his waist. He ground the hard knot of his erection to her pussy core. She tipped her head to give him access to her neck.
    He bit and sucked her tasty flesh. Her pelvis gyrated. The grip of her arms and legs tightened. A low, husky moan vibrated through her throat.
    She trembled in his arms then went still.
    Allegra’s breaths rasped in his ears. He lifted his head. With her mussed hair and swollen lips, she looked even more gorgeous. The skin under her jaw was a shade darker than the rest. She’d probably have one helluva hickey, if not two.
    She swiped a hand over her hair and opened her eyes.
    He quirked a grin at her desirous, if a bit glazed, expression. “Been a while?”
    She returned a small smile. “You have no idea.”

    1. Oooh, HOT stuff, Lynda! I like that he's trying hard to be calm...and she attacks him! LOL

  2. Thanks Lynda for stopping by, yes there is plenty of curl your toes hot sex between Cassianna and Lawrence. And because you were so nice to share your excerpt, here's a sneak peak from a scorching scene between Cassianna and Lawrence!

    Silhouetted by the glow of the fire, he gazed at her pert tawny nipples and her round breasts as she sat facing him, kneeling but motionless, seemingly captivated by his touch. He kept his eyes on hers as he dragged one finger along her décolleté, his thumb circling her perfect erect nipple, at first slowly and then with more pressure. His other hand slipped between her silken thighs, into her soft moist folds as he felt her quiver when he caressed her clit. His eyes held hers as he watched her gasp with pleasure at his slow touch, her mouth gaped open in pleasure. His cock twitched at the dual sensation of watching her while he found the beaded circles of her nipple and rubbed the erect buds. She gasped, breathless again, arching her hips toward him as he felt her clit hardening at his touch.

  6. Great excerpt. Here's mine from The Garnet Dagger: Fantasy/ Paranormal romance.
    With her hand in mine, I moved her to me. Hungrily, my lips sought hers. I yearned to show her my love. I pressed her against me, my fingers played over the curve of her hips. As we kissed, her hands touched my face, and then tugged at my trousers. Heat pressed against me.
    Then her lips trailed kisses down my chest.
    Shyly, she gazed up at me. Fingers unfastened her cloak. The material floated down in a circle behind her. Mesmerized, I watched her hands loosen the laces of her gown. At last, she eased the gown over her head and tossed it aside.
    I forgot to breathe.
    Her breasts were full, and seemed to yearn for my touch. Flat stomach flowed down into the curve of her hips. A golden triangle of curls between her legs captivated me.
    Nervous, my hands fumbled at my trousers.
    A giggle floated on the breeze as I struggled to remove my trousers, now lodged over my boots.
    Celeste pushed my hands aside. Eased up the material, she then tugged my boots off. Next my trousers were gone and on the ground. I leaned forward taking Celeste with me. Her cloak spread out beneath us. I kissed her until we both panted for breath, and yet wanted more.
    In worship, my lips sought her body. At hearing her indrawn breath when my lips grazed her nipple, I kissed each in turn. I opened my mouth over one of her taunt breast and suckled until her fingernails grazed down my back. Then I gave equal measure to the other breast until she ground her hips into me.
    My groin matched her urgency. Of its own accord, one of my hands toyed at the junction of her thighs. I kissed her lips. Moisture touched my fingertips and I growled in anticipation. Her hips pressed against me as if showing the steps to this ancient dance.

  7. I'm jumping in with a sexy scene from Troll-y Yours (as seen on the side bar):


    Alek squeezed his eyes shut. The breathy sound of his name on her delectable tongue would be his undoing. But he wanted his name, his full name, to pass between her lips before he tumbled them over the edge.

    “My name is Aleksander. Say it.”


    He hooked his arm around one of her knees, lifting her leg high. Pulling back, he drove into her hard.

    “Oh, yes! Yes…Aleksander.”

    “That’s my girl.” He added a playful slap to her ass. “Say it again.”

    This time Ella’s voice strained. She arched and threw her head back. “Al…Aleksander!”

    “Yes, Kalos?” He pounded her in earnest now, his scrotum tightening, pressure building. If he gritted his teeth any harder, he’d chip the points off. Strain of holding back was almost painful, and he closed his eyes tight.

    Ella’s short nails sank into his skin where she gripped his forearms. “I’m—Holy Titans!”

    Faint spasms gripped the head of his deeply buried cock. The milking sensation moved up his shaft with increasing strength and speed. Beneath him, Ella’s body bucked. She cried out, moaning long and low. Her small hands moved to cling to his back and if she drew blood, he could really give a shit.

    This was ecstasy at its peak.

    The best he’d ever had.

    With a subtle shift, Ella reached down and grabbed a handful of his hardworking ass, pressed him into her and forced him to lag his frantic movements.

    “Gods,” he moaned. “Please.”

    The slide and drag was more than he could bear, his whole body felt the sensation. Tight, wet, hot, she enveloped him. She moved beneath him in a slow pumping rhythm.

    He didn’t last long.

    Explosions of white-hot rapture, and he was there. Aleksander stiffened his arm braced beside her shoulder, slapped his hips once more to hers, and let loose his climax.

    Buried deep, liquid energy erupted from his body into hers, creating a shockwave that ripped him in two.

    Time stopped. The forest fell away. All that remained was a perfect female Troll who gathered his depleted body close.

    1. Hot!!! Thanks Sheri for sharing the steamy excerpt and for hosting me as a guest. This is SO much fun sharing sexy snippets. Love it and would love to be a guest again with my upcoming releases!

  8. Wow! These are some great excerpts. Here's mind from my new release, The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh.

    Sebastian unbuttoned the front of her gown and unlaced her stays. His hands cupped her breasts, and he buried his head in them. When he took one nipple into his mouth, she arched and cried with pleasure.

    It might be wrong, but she wanted this. Streaks of intense pleasure coursed through her as she responded to his caresses. She could barely think, but she had so many questions. How could he make her feel like this? How did he know what to do? And if this was what a man and a woman did together, how could any woman not like it? Her body ached and wanted more. She twisted and moaned and finally got her hands under his jacket.

    Drat. She’d forgotten to take off her gloves. “Sebastian, I want to touch you.”

    “Umm, do as you wish.” He moved to the other breast.

    “I still have my gloves on.” Her heart pulsed, and fire flooded her body. She could barely get the words out. “I can’t take them off while you’re doing that.”

    “Let me see.” He lifted up and quickly removed her gloves. “Now, where was I?”

    Anna tugged at his shirt, and it wouldn’t budge. She settled for rubbing her palms over the soft linen of his shirt. His skin burned beneath her hands. When she ran her fingers over his muscles, they tightened.

    He groaned and attended to her breasts with renewed vigor, before laying claim to her mouth. She rubbed greedily up and down his back, reveling in the feeling. “Sebastian, is it always like this? So wonderful?”

    “Only with you. If I do something you don’t like, tell me and I’ll stop.”
    Want him to stop? Her heart raced, and the breath to answer wouldn’t come. Cold air drifted up her legs. His hand touched the back of her knee before moving to her inner thigh. She shuddered. Soon he touched her curls and rubbed the place that ached so much. He seemed to know just what to do.

    She arched up and tried to put her legs around him. “Oh, Sebastian, that feels so good.”

    He chuckled. “Wait just a moment, and it will feel even better.”

    One finger slid into her, and little shudders ran through her. He removed it and filled her again. His mouth came down hard on hers. His tongue caressed and sucked hers, causing an inferno. She couldn’t think or breathe. If he kept this up, she was going to explode. It was as if it was a warm summer day and she was in an eddy being carried out to sea. She trembled as warm waves of bliss washed over her. Her heart filled with love for him. If only all this could last.

    1. Love it, Ella! No wonder your books fly off the shelf into many HOT hands. I felt like voyeur reading your STEAMY scene! Thank you so much for sharing today!

    2. Oh Sebastian, what a hottie! Thanks Ella for stopping by and sharing, so much fun to read!

  9. Seriously, all the excerpt--sexcerpts--were amazing today!!
    Bravo, all of you!

  10. Here's a sexcerpt from my paranormal romance novel, Prophecy's Child.

    His soft lips and the scrape of stubble on his jaw created an agonizing ache between Katherine's legs. If this kept up, he’d bring her to orgasm before they hit the bed.

    Her other nipple strained for his attention. Kal's mouth closed over it, drawing the tight nub deep. A delighted gasp escaped her as his tongue flicked the peak back and forth.

    With both hands, Kal pushed her breasts together and continued to suckle.

    Katherine closed her eyes. Her world centered on the wet tugging motion. God, she was so hot. This sweet torture would surely be the death of her.

    Releasing her breasts, he then smoothed his hands over her butt, pulling their lower bodies together. “Now your pants.”

    She stepped back and undid the button on her jeans. His wild stare lent her courage. The zipper came next. She shoved the soft denim down her legs.

    Pure male desire gleamed from his eyes. “You’re more beautiful then I remembered.”

    Sexual power coursed through her. His words, coupled with his look, answered her earlier question of whether he still found her attractive.

    He knelt down and ran his calloused palms up her calves, the back of her thighs, then massaged her ass. “I’m going to taste you now.”

    Kal’s words cranked her arousal up another notch. He was simply stating a fact, not asking for her permission.

    Also available on Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Apple, plus many other sites.

    1. OMG!! I've only read this book TWICE and I'm still going UP IN FLAMES! Hot, gritty, raw. Love it!, Love Kal. Thank you for playing in the flames.

    2. Ooeee, so smokin' steamy. So glad you shared with us Brenda and thanks again for stopping by. This is one hot blog! Thanks for Sheri too for letting us have so much fun today!
