Wordless Wednesday – a Harmless Nibble

I’m starting a weekly post called Wordless Wednesday. Yes, I realize I’m posting words right now but just bear with me a moment. I never said I was good at following rules, even my own. Anyway, each Wednesday (barring I’m on a tight deadline, have a family emergency, or if I forget), I’ll post a picture that represents where I am in my project(s), or just something pretty or hot. It won’t usually include words or an explanation, but since it’s my blog, I can do whatever I want. But feel free to post your own thoughts about it in the comments below.

Here’s my photo for today.




The Dom with the Clever Tongue is Released!

That’s right. We’ve released our baby into the wild. After toiling hard, reining it in, making it perfect, we’ve finally published book 4 in the Badass Brats series.

I know this blog particularly is for my PNR series but Leia Shaw is a writer of both genres so I’m sharing the good news in my spooky writing lair too.

In case you haven’t seen it posted a billion times, here’s the blurb and a fun excerpt. And of course, the buy links. Pay special attention to the buy links 😉

Also, cool news… The Brats Bundle (book 1&2) is on SALE this week for only 99 cents. So two books in one for only a dollar. Pretty awesome deal, right? It’s available on amazon, B&N, and ARe.


Reece and Scarlet have everything a loving couple could want, except a hot kinky sex life. Malachi, an experienced Dom, steps in to help them sort that out. But not only is he a terrible memory from Reece’s past, he’s a smartass and damaged goods, too.

As they all learn to trust each other, Malachi becomes more than just their kink coach. It’s a full-on brat smackdown, and no heart gets out unscathed.

Warning: this book contains unrepentant brats, surprise orgasms, a Domme with training wheels, and a Dom whose tongue is registered as a weapon of mass seduction.

BDSM elements, M/F/f, F/f


Scarlet kept her eyes on Reece. “You sure you want to play this game with him?”

Malachi turned his head just in time to see the towel flick out. It snapped, hitting his ass like a whip.

Zero to Dom in point three seconds. Malachi wiped his wet hands on his jeans and walked slowly toward Reece, no longer a sweet, attractive man. In his place was a dangerous, predatory, sex-god. Scarlet’s girlfriend backed away, laughing nervously and twirling the towel again.

“You hit me again, kitten,” he growled, “and you’ll be a very sorry little girl.”

She looked scared but she snapped her arm out again and the dish towel cracked against his thigh.

“Game over.” He lunged at her and she bolted from the room then ran down the hall into the bedroom.

Scarlet couldn’t believe the girl’s nerve. When she caught up with them in the bedroom, Malachi was working on crowding her into a corner, but she kept slipping past him.

“The longer you run the worse this is going to be for you, brat. Stop now and beg for mercy, or you won’t like the consequences.”

Reece was laughing, though she looked both frightened and turned on.

“You talk big for a guy that can’t even catch me.”

Who Loves Free Books?

Hey , guess what?

I have a free book.

Not only that, but I have a whole list of other awesome free books. And only you, and everyone else reading this and the dozen facebook posts, know about it. So head on down to this website and check it out. It’s this weekend only so go now. Like, now. Right now!

And make sure you pick up the first in my PNR series, Destiny Divided too while it’s free.

After fleeing her native city — and nightmares of a traumatic childhood — Sage Peterson meets the overbearing, pretentious, yet haunted Professor Elias. He’s the only one who knows about her mysterious powers, which seem to be spiraling out of control. When he convinces her to train with him, she finds herself thrust into a five hundred year war and on the run from vampires, werewolves, and even worse — her budding feelings for James Elias.

Murphy’s Law

Right when I restart my blog, I get hit with a family crisis. Isn’t that always the way?

But I’m not deserting you this time. My goal was to blog at least once week, which I plan to continue to do, but this week you get this lame post.

Sorry. Maybe in a few days I’ll have something awe-inspiring and mind-blowing. For now, I gotta deal with my shit so you get this shit.

In the meantime, be entertained by this funny meme.


You Know You’re a Book Addict When…

You know you’re a book addict when…

Your kids have ripped jeans and their shoes are too small but you have plenty of books on your e-reader.

It’s not unusual to find drool on your kindle in the morning.

If you totaled the amount you’ve spent on books in the last year, it’d be equal to or more than your mortgage payment.

Clicking the “buy now” button gives you a rush like a druggie getting their next fix.

Your e-reader gets more action than your partner.

Your kid’s first word was “kindle.”

You have a panic attack when your TBR pile gets low (by low I mean less than 20 books).

You catch yourself saying, “Oh that same thing happened to my friend Julie,” then freeze when you remember Julie is a fictional character in a book.

Your kids know if they touch mommy’s Nook her forehead gets all veiny.

You ask for gift cards (to Amazon, B&N, etc) for every holiday including your kid’s birthdays.

The countdown to a new release is more exciting than the countdown to the New Year.

You start reading a book then look up and realize it’s been hours and you’ve forgotten to cook dinner for your family. Oh and you’re still wearing your pajamas and haven’t peed all day.

Your e-reader is like your Mastercard – it’s everywhere you want to be.

You justify a new book purchase with excuses like “It’s on sale!” “I had a bad day!” and “It’s Tuesday.”

You can stop anytime. No really, you can.
