Sci-fi? Intense romance? An insanely sexy hero?

Many people probably don’t know that I’ve written a handful of books under another pen name: Marie E. Blossom. One of my very favorite books I’ve written is Devotion.

Why? The hero, Zefirino, is crazy sexy. And a ninja (sort of). Also, the heroine has super powers. And most of all, well, we can’t forget the knife-play scene, can we? Their love is forbidden… but you know how that goes in erotic romances. ;)

This is also one of the longest books I’ve written, coming in at 61k words. It’s available in paperback, too.

Queen Ximena is devoted to her people and will gladly sacrifice herself for them, even if it means her death. Her bodyguard, Zefirino, is devoted to her and will gladly sacrifice himself to keep her alive.

When a terrible enemy suddenly attacks their planet, how will they protect those they love without losing each other? Together they survive an assassination attempt, invasion, and capture, but they both know that their duty may eventually tear them apart.

How can Ximena give her life for her people when she knows that Zefirino will die trying to save her? Who does she put first: her planet, or the lover she isn’t even supposed to have?

What are people saying about Devotion?

DUSK by Erin M. Leaf

 

First Kiss:

“I should have called you sooner,” he said, surprising her. He put a hand on her arm, tilting her away from the office window. “Earlier this summer.”

“Why would you?” she asked him, floundering. He didn’t owe her anything. In fact, she owed him, for saving her life.

He looked at her for a long moment. Lucy was about to step back, but then he reached up and cupped her cheek. Her heart knocked against her ribs.

“The moment I touched you to heal you, I knew,” he murmured, eyes soft.

Lucy swallowed, trying to breathe past her panic. “Knew what?” she whispered. Heat washed through her in a wave. He smelled like fresh air and sun-baked stone. She couldn’t help it—she leaned into his palm.

He frowned and dropped his hand, suddenly staring at the door. He looked abruptly unapproachable. “I must go.”

Lucy stepped back, cursing herself for letting him get so close. “You confuse me,” she said past the lump in her throat. You’re just a silly girl to him, she told herself, embarrassed. She stepped back further. He’s hundreds of years older than you.

He turned back to her, his eyes dark and worried. “I’m sorry,” he murmured, then to her shock, he cupped her face with both hands and quickly kissed her.

Lucy stood there like an idiot. Do I kiss him back? she wondered, and then before she could do anything, he moved away, head tilting once more as if he was listening to something only he could hear.

“Solomon?”

His hands fell away from her as he stared at the door. “Stay here,” he said, frowning. “Something is wrong.”

“What?” she asked, but he was already outside. She touched her mouth, dazed. “What just happened?” Her lips tingled.

Round 1:

Hero’s name: 
Sentry Solomon Dusk

Hero’s profession: 
Sentry and scientist, protector of Earth

Physical description of hero: 
Solomon is tall, dark, and handsome with brown hair and stubble. His light brown eyes have silver specks within the iris, designating his status as a Sentry. He is nearly immortal and is 245 years old, but is incredibly strong. He needs to be extremely fit so he can power the Stronghold network with his personal energy, along with his three brothers.

Special skills:
Solomon has a natural immunity to the alien Spiders, and mental strength that gives his empathy power. He can sense the emotions of others and harness his energy to heal them, as well as interface with the technology he creates to fight the alien invaders of Earth. His ability to create new hybrid technology demonstrates his extreme intelligence.

Quote: 
“I am going to make love to you until you can’t remember your own name.”

Handy Harry is coming soon!

WIP   Evernight Coming Soon

Handy Harry has been accepted by Evernight Publishing! It will be out in September 2015. It’s a humorous short story about a reclusive artist and his unexpectedly sexy handyman. It’s a first time story. It’s a straight-to-gay story. It’s a coming out story. Yup. I crammed every juicy trope I love into this 15,000 word story. :D Because I could.

In a week, I’ll be back to working on Bad Oak Boys number 2: Josh and Gerwulf’s story. My tentative title is Alpha Shaman. It’s already outlined and the first scene is written!

Here’s the blurb for Handy Harry:

Reclusive artist Rufus Ward’s house needs repair, but he hates demolition and dust. However, when handyman Harry Hande rings his doorbell, Rufus lets him in—he’s everything the famous painter likes in a man: young, sexy, and somewhat confused about his sexuality. Rufus thought he was done with dating, but Harry is hot enough to push him from loneliness into love.

Harry’s sensible demeanor disguises desperation. His brother is a jerk and he needs to move out, but his fledgling business isn’t quite ready to support him. Rufus is supposed to be just another client, but when they meet, all of Harry’s preconceived notions of attraction are demolished. Lust launches him into the dare of a lifetime. Will letting Rufus draw him nude destroy him, or will his true nature come out?

Cocktails and Books loved Bitter Bite! #review

C-B

Cocktails and Books loved Bitter Bite! — Erin Leaf continues to blow my mind.

“This story has a bit of everything that I love…paranormal, of course, and action, danger, a unique plot, and well…hot MMF sex/romance.  This isn’t your Mama’s romance, though.  It’s very intense.  There’s a feeling of urgency, but there’s also some angst.  These three people NEED each other to be complete and to be safe.”

Click here to read an excerpt.

Alaric Normand is a solitary predator, so when he meets a man who kindles long-dormant emotions, he dismisses the attraction. What does he need with a lover? A consort bond spells nothing but vulnerability for a vampire who’s been alone for five centuries.

Ex-priest Gideon Keegan has lost his faith, so when he witnesses a supernatural killing, how does he accept the reality of evil? And why does he feel attraction for such a violent individual, especially when he’s already in love with someone else?

Everyone thinks Hannah Ward is an innocent, but she knows the truth: she’s done terrible things, and so she hides her affection for Gideon. She isn’t worthy of love, yet when a handsome stranger kisses her she falls hard, despite her sense that something is wrong. How can she have feelings for two men at once? Must she choose between the dark and the light?
