Description:

Sunset Heat ~ book 4 in the Sunset series for Decadent Publishing’s 1Night Stand line

Can one night transform a woman’s life?

Seana Tramonto feels doomed when it comes to relationships. When she’s set up through the 1Night Stand service, she’s apprehensive at best. Her concern turns to ire when her match turns out to be a man who broke her heart years ago. Old wounds are slow to heal no matter how sexy the man asking for forgiveness.

Zachary Russo, a Las Vegas policeman, is talked into doing a 1NS date. When he learns it’s with his high school tutor and friend, the girl he stood up before the Homecoming dance, he’s determined to make it up to her. But seeing her again opens his eyes to the sexy woman she’s become. Can he prove he’s grown up or will circumstance beyond his control kill their second chance?

Excerpt:

“I had it bad for you.”

“So, what’s your wish now?”

If she leaned toward him, turned just enough, maybe he’d kiss her. Did she have the nerve? What would he think of her advance?

“Seana?”

She closed her eyes, relishing the silky way he spoke her name. “Hmm?”

“Your wish. You’re going to enter the drawing the charity is having, right?”

“I can’t say or it won’t come true,” she murmured. Just move your face toward his. Do it! Though her inner diva cheered her on, she couldn’t.

“A superstition for shooting stars and birthday candles.”

“So? I don’t want to take chances.” Yes you do, her inner cheerleader chided.

He brushed his cheek against hers. Warm breath caressed her ear. Restless throbs of desire pulsed in her veins. Sexual excitement curled in her womb. It’d been quite some time since feeling those particular sensations. Who’d I do it with last? Oh, the guy in the off-Broadway showing of West Side Story. Antonio something or other. She’d almost told him she loved him, but his ex-girlfriend came back into the picture, which snipped her out of it.

Could Zach be her one? Even after all this time and despite their difficulties? Back when she’d helped him in high school, she’d wanted him and would have given him her all. She didn’t feel any different now. Turning her face toward his finally, she prepared for the first of what she hoped would be many kisses. None came. He wasn’t as close as she thought. Seana stared into his eyes, becoming lost in their depths.

“Seana?”

“Yes?” She breathed in his spicy, clean scent, wanting to nibble on the muscle stretching from his neck into the top of his white dress shirt.

“Tell me more about the tutoring room.”

“Why? Interested in playing out my fantasy?”

Zach rubbed her knee. His touch seared her skin under her black sequined dress. “But we’re not in a school. There are no classrooms to use.”

The scenario she’d envisioned as a young adult awaited her next move. If there’s ever a time to be bold and spontaneous, it’s now. Quit stalling and take the leap. Feeling naughty and way too frisky to miss the opportunity, she drew circles on his leg with her fingertip. “We can improvise by going up to your room or mine and pretending we’re in a classroom.”

Seconds clicked by. Zach didn’t say a word. Wasn’t he interested? Her palms became clammy. I can’t be rejected again.

Wicked Wednesday with C.R. Moss

MossLatF   Moss_ANTHO-MED

1. If your characters could pick a food to play with in the bedroom, what would they use?

For the characters in Lovers and the Fiend, they’d probably pick sundae items…chocolate to drizzle on the skin, whipped cream to top things off, cherries to feed each other, ice cream to spread along the contours of their bodies…

2. How old were you the first time you read a romance novel? Erotica?

Romance novels: In my teens. I read some teenage romances. Guess they’d be considered YA now. Then in my mid-twenties a friend gave me A Knight in Shining Armor to read & that’s when I got hooked on romances. As for erotica, does some of the material in VC Andrews’ books count? Like Flowers in the Attic? Read that in eighth grade. Other erotica, well since I took a Literature and Sexuality course in college that’d be in my early twenties.

3. What is your favorite romance genre to read? Why? (Paranormal, sci-fi, contemporary, MM, menage, etc.)

Any really. I have an eclectic taste. 🙂

4. What’s hotter for the hero: long-hair, short, or bald? Why?

I like a length between long and short, not so long that he competes against the length of my hair & looks like a chick from behind, but something long enough to be able to grab hold of in intimate situations. 😉

5. When is your favorite time of day to write? Where is your favorite place to write? (Morning, evening, bed, playground, etc.)

Time of day: Afternoons on good days but lately ~ late at night. My muse seems to love getting inspired around 11 pm and keeping me up. Where? Depends upon the time of year and if my office is clean or not. During the warmer months, I take a notebook and pen down to the pool and sit poolside and write. Or I go sit on my back porch. Otherwise I’m in my office if it’s clean. If it’s not, then I’m on my laptop on the couch in the living room.

6. Bonus question! Do your characters use birth control (i.e. condoms) and if so, how do you make the mechanics of it sexy?

If the publishing house requires it, yes. I keep the mechanics of it as short and sweet as possible so as to not detract from the scene.

7. Tell us about your latest release or what you’re working on now.

Today I’m here to tout my latest C.R. Moss release, Lovers and the Fiend.

Lovers and the Fiend is a story in Evernight Publishing’s Naughty Fairy Tale line. The characters, Jack and Kristina, appeared in my short story – Chasing Miss Kringle – that’s in an Evernight Publishing anthology – Stockings and Suspenders. This is the first of a handful of stories I have planned for the NFT line that revolve around the world started in CMK and Lovers. You don’t have to read the anthology story to read Lovers, but it’d be nice if you did. 😉

Blurb:

Ex-cop turned private investigator, Jack Vorst, learns his elf girlfriend Kristina has been missing for a few days after being invited to an underground vampire club. He, too, is summoned to visit club Hexenringe and is taken captive. Jack finds Kristina bound and gagged in a human sized bird cage. They’re both thrust into a kinky world at the hands of Kol, the club owner. Kol, a vampiric beast, shifts into human form to be with Jack and Kristina and needs them to remember their pasts and to love him so he can return to what he used to be. Can Kol make the pair fall in love with him despite his current situation and the fact he’s keeping them captive or will they leave, making it too late for him to change all their fates?

Warning: ménage a trios, M/M, bondage, anal sex, sex toys, public exhibition
