It's time for one more giveaway hop before Christmas. This one is hosted by Felicity Heaton and Indie Romance Books. You can click on the pic to the left for the hop's main page.
I can't think of anything better to keep us warm during these long winter months than some hot men and even hotter books. And if you happen to be in a warm or hot climate right now, I'm sure you still won't mind the type of heat I'm talking about.
This time, I'm giving away FREE eBook copies of my anthology, Nocturnal Bites, to everyone reading this. See details on how to get your copy at the end of this post.
Nocturnal Bites contains the first 3 novelettes/novellas in my erotic paranormal - vampire - romance series, The Nocturnal Surrender Series. It also contains two bonuses: a short erotic story and a character interview. If you're looking for a naughty read with sexy vampires that actually bite, then this one is for you. Don't miss the info below - including a hot excerpt - on the newest book in my series, Night Therapy.
See this guy above and to the right? He'll keep you warm this winter, don't you think? Well, guess what... He is also the cover model for the newest novel in my Nocturnal Surrender Series, Night Therapy. You can check out his sexy abs on the cover below, but first, how about that hot excerpt I promised? This is, of course, the hero and heroine from Night Therapy, Johnathan and Stephanie.

Stephanie shivered as she sucked in Johnathan’s blood. It tasted so sweet, brought her so much closer to him. And feeling his emotions only made the moment more intimate.
She moaned as she bit into his throat repeatedly. When he groaned, a wave of his desire crashed into her. Her core ached, pulsating from the need to have him inside her.
Unsure how much she could safely drink, she eased her fangs out of his throat and lapped the remaining drops of blood as his wounds healed.
She looked up at him and licked her lips. “I love how you taste. Is my blood that good?”
“Oh, baby, you have no idea.” He grinned. “Can I have a little?”
The rasp in his voice vibrated her chest. She nodded, and he swept her hair off her shoulder. His fingertips slithered along her neck, and a shiver crawled up her spine. She clutched his muscular arms as his mouth closed in on her throat.
He continued strumming her skin with his fingers, and then his lips did the same. Slowly, the kisses deepened until his fangs scraped her sensitive flesh. The slight sting filled her with pleasure. He pulled her closer and held her so tight she wanted to melt into him. His cock pressed against her as he bit into her neck.
She wrapped her arms around him with all her newly-acquired strength. A tingling sensation swept through her when he sucked in her blood. Her head spun from their shared arousal. She ground herself against him, and her core thrummed with longing.
He backed her into the wall, groaning as he drank. She stood on her toes while he dipped slightly so his cock hit the right spot. When he released her neck, a brief burning sensation prickled her skin where his fangs had penetrated—no doubt the wounds healing.
At that moment, it finally sank in that she was no longer human. That she was…immortal.
The world is mine.
He is mine.
It was time to have some fun.
She spun their entwined bodies around, pinned him to the wall, grabbed his face, and kissed him so hard her fangs pierced his lip. He grunted and cupped her ass, pulling her to him repeatedly. Grinding into her.
As she sucked on his lip, gathering every last drop of blood, she yanked his shirt out of his pants and ran her hands along those hard abs she’d been dying to touch.
His desire coursed through her like her own, multiplying hers, driving her crazy. She kissed him with total abandon. Ground her needy clit against him. Slipped her hand inside the tight confines of his jeans and grabbed what she wanted. He jerked and moaned from her touch.
Apparently her inhibitions had disappeared with her mortality.
Who wouldn’t want to feel like this?
Goosebumps rose over her entire body as she reveled in her new life. In what it all meant.
In her power.
Unable to endure any more, she pulled away from his mouth and yanked her hand out of his jeans. “Take me upstairs. Now.”
Johnathan cradled her face. “You know I wouldn’t let anyone else talk to me like that.” He kissed her defiantly. “But damn, did that turn me on even more.”
He eased their bodies away from the wall and reached down to lift her. She clamped her legs around his waist and kissed his neck as he carried her to the bedroom.
Though no lights were on inside his room, she could see perfectly. As soon as he laid her on the bed and crawled on top of her, she stripped off his shirt and tossed it aside. She seized the opportunity to unbutton and unzip his jeans while he loomed above her on his hands and knees. Before she could slip a hand inside, he clasped her wrists and forced them above her head.
“Let’s get one thing straight here. I am far older and far stronger than you.” He eased his body down and ground his hard cock into her. “And I am going to make love to you first. Then you can take charge if you want, but only when I’m through showing you what pleasure really is.”
Smug asshole. “Someone sure is full of himself.”
“It’s not that.” He leaned down and kissed her softly. “Think about it. Heightened senses combined with feeling each other’s emotions. This will be the best you’ve ever had for those reasons alone.”
Still sounds smug. She wriggled beneath him and raised her hips to grind against him, hoping to make some of his control slip.
“You are feisty. Alex was right about you.” He held her wrists in one hand with a vice-like grip while his other hand claimed one of her breasts. “You acted all sweet and innocent in your office, but something tells me there’s a side of you I’m really going to enjoy getting to know. Maybe even a side that’s a little like my bad side.”
Sure she was no match for his strength, but she couldn’t let a statement like that go. She clamped her legs around him and pulled him tight against her, trapping his hand between them. Maybe it only worked because she had caught him off guard, or maybe he had simply allowed it, but either way, she enjoyed her small victory.
“That might be a side of me you don’t want to know.” She raised her head and bit his lip.
What’s gotten into me? It was as if all the emotions she’d kept locked inside for years were exploding out of her.
And she liked it.
“Fuck, Steph. Do you have any idea what you’re doing to me?”
Actually, she did. She felt it deep inside. His arousal had grown exponentially.
She pushed up into him one more time, trying to ease her growing desire. “Yes, Johnathan, I do. And it’s your own fault for not letting me take you. You’d be inside me, fucking me right now.”
She lashed out to bite him again, but this time, he must have seen it coming. He jerked his head away, and she chomped down on nothing but air.
“Prick.” Oops. She hadn’t meant to say that out loud. If her hands weren’t on lockdown, she would have covered her mouth.
“Guess you’ve gotten to know the real me. Do you still want me?” He squeezed her breast and pinched her nipple.
Shockwaves tore through her body, coming to rest in her core, which throbbed incessantly. She moaned. Damn these heightened senses.
