Guest Spot + Contest - Double the Pleasure!!

I never thought this would happen to me, but I have two erotic romances releasing this month – within four days of each other – and from two different publishers!

Eeek, I’m floored, excited, and definitely celebrating by offering a contest. More on that later.

For now, let me talk a bit about my novels. They are as different as they come – except for the steamy sex and Alpha heroes to die for. One is an erotic contemporary ménage, the other is an erotic paranormal. Here’s the cover art, blurb and buy link (with excerpt) for each. :-)

SiNN – contemporary erotic romance (ménage) from Ellora’s Cave – releasing October 14

She’s every man’s carnal fantasy…and the target of one’s revenge
At a Phoenix gentleman’s club, Lea dances as SiNN, her body bared and vulnerable to her male partner, her features hidden behind a feathered mask. To the men watching, she’s a sensual enigma, submissive and seductive with no face, name or history. Not even Lea knows her real origins.
A man from the past does and wants her dead.
Not on the watch of U.S. Marshals Jake Gabriel and Toby Quinn. Commanding and decisive, Jake not only wants Lea’s safety but to have her naked and yielding beneath him. To Toby, she’s all he should resist but cannot.
Protected by them at a secluded estate, Lea’s drawn to their potent masculinity and the raw male lust in their eyes. Inviting desire and an emotional connection, she submits to both at once, surrendering to their most shameless hunger along with her own wanton needs.
All while a killer edges closer…

UNENDING DESIRE – erotic paranormal romance from Samhain – coming October 18

His hunger for one woman will make him a traitor to his world…
Outlawed Realm, Book 1
From a portal in his lab on E2, one of the five dimensions of Earth, quantum physicist Nikoli Zorr gazes on everything forbidden to him. Passion. Desire. The exquisite pleasure of running his hands over the lush curves of a young woman he should have stopped watching weeks ago.
His duty is to close the portals that keep the monsters out of E2—and never interfere with the inevitable fate of those on the other side. Yet he can’t bring himself to abandon the woman who has captured his soul.
Psychologist Regina Page is trying to keep her mind on her client, and off the mysterious, unbearable sexual cravings that consume her when she’s alone in her bedroom. The next moment she’s attacked by vampires, then swept into another realm by a stranger whose touch awakens that same raw desire. Whose eyes are already filled with farewell.
Yet beneath their undeniable carnal lust, something else stirs. The beginnings of illicit love. The unexpected need to protect him. Even if it means risking body, blood and soul to defeat the merciless horde…for a future that was never meant to be.

Product Warnings
Contains a repressed scientist who likes to look, and the woman who delights in unleashing his inner caveman. And sex hot enough to burn a hole in all three dimensions…and maybe create a whole new one.

Wow, great book choices for the giveaway. Both Sinn and Unending Desire sound like good reads. Did you have to research gentlemen's clubs to write Sinn? Thanks for the giveaway!

Tina Donahue said...

Hey, Jen - I did a bit of research on gentlemen's clubs for SiNN, but most of it was just made up from my vivid imagination. :)
