WOR DAY THREE: A Little Harmless Obsession

As many of you know, I have had a lot of releases lately. Since Sept 21, I have had 4, and I have another one before the month is out. So, I thought I would spotlight some of the other books this week, along with a preview of my last release of 2010, Sex on the Beach, this Friday.

CONTEST: One Winner each day. Answer the question and get your name in the hat. If you follow me, I throw your name in two times! Prizes: 25 dollar GC from book retailer of your choice!

QUESTION OF THE DAY
In recent years, I have stopped making New Years' Resolutions to lose weight(obviously) or to be a particular way. I found out that I sometimes don't take care of myself. So, at the beginning of the new year I always try to promist to do something for myself for the year. Kind of selfish, but I know that a lot of you are like me. You put yourself last behind friends, family. It is usually nothing big. This year was to take more time for myself, to read, to relax, to spend time with my family. I haven't decided about 2011. So, if you could do one thing for yourself for the New Year, what would it be? It could be as simple as buying yourself an extra book, taking a night to read, getting a pedi or mani once a month...anything. Let me know in the comment section!

What begins as a quest for submission becomes an unrelenting need for love.
May Aiona’s crush on sexy Evan Chambers is a bad habit that should be easy to break. It’s not like he’s ever noticed her. Looking for a safe place to release the reins of control and explore her curiosity about BDSM, May takes a friend up on an invitation to visit an exclusive bondage club—all she has to agree to is a public submission.
Evan can’t help but notice the exotically beautiful May. But despite his success, the dirty secrets of his past whisper that he’ll never be good enough for her. When Evan sees her standing in his club ready to submit to his best friend, he gives in to the thing he wants most—May as his sub. After their session, he knows one night will never be enough. But loving May isn’t easy for a man always ready to take charge. She might like to submit in the bedroom, but she doesn’t like anyone telling her what to do outside of it.
When May insists she’s not in any danger from the person seemingly obsessed with her, she ends up in the sights of a deranged stalker—with Evan possibly too far away to help.
Warning: This book contains sexy Hawaiian settings, crazy relatives, and a submission scene that leaves the heroine breathless and the hero frustrated. There are toys, bondage, and love scenes so hot, you’ll need ice water and a towel. Remember, it’s a Harmless story, so you know there’s nothing harmless about it.

EXCERPT
 “There are no rules against showing your pleasure. It will help me understand what you want…need from me.”

He rolled one nipple between his fingers. A low moan escaped. “That’s good.”

With one last soft pinch to each nipple, he released her and unhooked the restraints from the ceiling. Rubbing his hands down her arms, he led her toward the middle of the platform. A crinkle formed above her eyes telling him she was confused. While some Doms got off on keeping a sub completely in the dark, and it did have its place in some training, a new sub needed to know the basics to ease their nerves. Anticipation was one thing, being skittish was another thing all together.

“I don’t like leaving anyone in that position for too long. It’s not good for the circulation, and it really isn’t the ideal position for what I had in mind.”

Evan couldn’t keep the excitement or need out of his voice. He wasn’t sure she could recognize it. His body screamed to conquer, to take her as his, but he knew it wouldn’t happen. It was his job to initiate her, nothing else. The idea that he would never touch her after tonight ate at him He led her down the stairs to one of his favorite pieces of equipment. Shaped like a gymnasium horse, it could be lowered in height and provided hooks on the side for her restraints. He still said nothing, knowing that the silence added a level of tension that would bring her a more glorious release in the end.

Without a word, he pressed on her lower back, urging her forward. Soon he had her bent over, her cuffs hooked on, and her ass in the perfect position for the ultimate viewing experience for the audience. He’d made sure the audio had been turned off for them, although he knew that had not been Micah’s intention. But he wanted music for the two of them, just for them. After he picked out his favorite playlist, one that always reminded him of May, the smooth, sensual voice of Lauryn Hill filled the room. He moved the paddle into grabbing distance.

Not being able to resist, he placed both hands on the fullest part of her ass and squeezed. She rarely wore jeans or pants to work, so seeing the actual shape of her rear didn’t happen that often. Still, it wouldn’t matter after tonight. Every time he closed his eyes he would probably see it. Lord knows he’d dream of taking her from behind. He slid his hands up and over to the small of her back. His fingers trembled and he had to grit his teeth to fight the desire to slip them between her cheeks, into the small puckered hole. She tensed slightly. With one last lingering caress, he moved to pick up the paddle.
“I glanced at your questionnaire.” He rubbed the padded toy over her rear end. “You seem to have a…shall we call it…interest in spankings.”

Just one thing? Here's a hedge: schedule one hour a day to do something good for me: write, exercise, go to church.

For this next year hubby and I have decided our New Year's Resolution will be to find just 1 evening a month to have a date night! We haven't had many "just us" dates out since our oldest was born 23 years ago! I love my children I seriously do but getting out without them once in a blue moon is a good thing! :)

CrystalGB said...

My goal is to try not to sweat the small stuff so much. I need to not worry about every little thing and just enjoy life.

Wilma said...

I would buy more books and spend more time reading.

flchen1 said...

I don't have a problem with getting more books! ;) What I need to do is keep better track of my books and reading--use Goodreads or something! And it would be heavenly to take better care of my feet--a pedicure sounds lovely! That's a plan for the new year!

Connie T said...

Keep my desk clean for the whole year! LOL! My desk seems to be the "catch all" for everything. I need to scan and file my stuff as I get it!

Colleen said...

Set aside some more me time... maybe reorganize my room & the spare room... have not really thought too much about 2011 goals.

Well, I'd like an two hour break to exercise.

I love aerobic and dancing so that would be perfect for me.

I would love to get a massage every month. Totally do-able, just seems like I can never get it to happen.

Melissa, this may sound like work to you. But my goal is to get all the folders in my pc Hot Mail categories sorted and organized, and mostly deleted or saved into folders on my pc.

After discovering cafes, ebooks, their authors and excerpts, and becoming a SP mod less that 3 years ago, my email folders are maxed out and completely disorganized.

At least my pc files are in much better shape.

I need to start eating healthier, cutting back on sugar and junk food. Congrats on the great reviews.

Heather said...

I am going to treat myself to a new bookcase. I need one desperately. It's an easy con for my hubs too since he's always complaining about the piles of books everywhere.

I'd like to get myself a personal chef. When I visit my parents or they stay with me and I come home to a meal ready to go, it's like heaven.

Lately, I've been nuking a few appetizer items from the freezer as soon as I get home, then making a sandwich later. When I do cook, I eat the same thing for about 6 days, which I actually don't mind if it's tasty.

I plan on trying not to be so hard on myself. I'm my own worst critique. That needs to stop.

Sheree said...

I will go back to exercising on a regular basis. It will help me physically and mentally.

I would like to learn how not to stress over the little things in life. I'm one of those that have given myself anxiety attacks when I worry.

I am going to try not to care what other people say and just do what I need to do and save more money for writers conventions !!

Chris said...

Date night with the hubs more often. With 5 crazy schedules, we need it!

Raven99 said...

I need more rest, so I would like to take one day each week to sleep in for as long as I like.

Amy S. said...

To go on vacation, at a beach.

Caffey said...

Hi Mel! Yep I'm following you!
Its so fab with you back and all! Every book has been worth the wait and so looking forward to March's historical and more!

You know one day I was apologizing to hubby for getting more books, and he said 'never apologize, we have the one life, enjoy it" and that I do now! I wake up with the day and plan to enjoy it. I hurry along the chores and then too take that fun time to read. So too, less worry for me, thats my goal for me! And yes, more reads!

Chelsea B. said...

For myself?....Hmmmm....Well, reading is my getaway, so every night after everything is taken care of, I'm definitely going to settle in and enjoy some reading time :-)

Carol L. said...

The one thing I'll work on is to stop procrastinating and just do. I've been in a bad rut lately where I just keep putting things off. Bad habit. :)I'm a GFC follower under Lucky47

One little thing for myself would be to go out by myself for me time maybe twice a month. Ya know, around paydays.

Just get away from the kids, dogs and hubby and hit the local BN or something like that. Go for a coffee and relax.

I wish to declutter our house. Through the years we have collected so much "stuff" that it truly makes it hard to find things we really need in a hurry. I always plan to "use this later," but somehow time slips away and I don't get that done. So I am makng a hard promise to clear out a lot of meant-to-use-but-somehow-don't items. We have a charity shop near our home that is run by several churches and they can turn some of my "stuff" into cash for good causes.
