Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday!!
Gosh, it doesn’t seem that long ago when Claire was looking for authors to help launch Total-e-bound. I was tickled to be able to send her a manuscript (DREMACATCHER) and then I jumped right in with both feet and started writing short stories for the first set of anthologies TEB had out that year.
In honor of our birthday celebration, here are the blurbs of those first stories, which by the way, are still available. If you’re new to TEB, you haven’t had a chance to read some of the greatest short stories and novels you’ll ever come across. Keep up with the latest releases, but sneak a peak back into the archives for more super sexy stories!
DREAMCATCHER – full length historical
Legend states that hanging a Dreamcatcher over your bed will catch the bad dreams and only allow the good ones to flow through to the dreamer. Willow has been told “if you believe, then it will be so”, but her nightmares about the events causing her amnesia still haunt her, and while she knows she doesn’t belong with the Blackfoot tribe, it is the only shelter she has...
…until Garrison York appears. Montana rancher and blood brother to the Chief’s son, he is given charge of helping Willow discover her past, but the instant attraction between them makes him want to concentrate only on current pleasure. He slowly leads her to succumb to the passion they feel…
…even as deadly events threaten to tear them apart. With neighbors trying to steal land for railroad expansion and relatives willing to kill for fortunes in gold, can Garrison keep Willow safe, allowing no one else to enjoy the erotic delight he finds in her arms?
THE TWELFTH OF NEVER – in the Halloween Heart Throbs series
Author Zoe Shepard races away from an unfaithful lover in the States only to fall into the arms of a spirit in Ireland. While she has no intention of allowing another faithless male in her life, she doesn’t mind this particular man because he demands nothing and night after night he gives her incredible climaxes. It isn’t until the full moon that Zoë actually meets Keegan McFallon, knight and lord of clan McFallon, in human form. Because of a sorceress’s spell, he’s doomed to remain in the spirit world, except on the nights of new and full moons, until he has an orgasm on the Twelfth of Never. Unfortunately, that is a riddle he cannot seem to solve. Keegan, with his long blonde hair, broad shoulders, and constant hard-on, is so much better in the flesh than in spirit form that Zoë sets about trying to discover how to release him from the sorceress’s spell. In the meantime, she decides to write his story, but…
Who’s going to believe a story about a five hundred year old spirit who has to orgasm on the Twelfth of Never to return to mortal form?
ONCE UPON A STARRY NIGHT – in the Christmas Is Coming series
For two weeks before Christmas, corporate mogul, Tom Powers, decides to play The Prince and the Pauper. When he exchanges places with Brian Bentley, who looks just like him, he only wants a chance to be an ordinary guy. But while doing Brian’s job, he meets Jordan Scott, and the explosive sex they share has him forgetting who he really is. Will she forgive him when she finds out he’s the owner of the company and not the line supervisor she falls in love with?
ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT – in the Cupid's Kisses series
Lincoln Parish has an attitude. That’s what got him in trouble and now he’s doing community service time at an old ladies’ retirement home. But the women there also have attitudes, and they floor him with their frank discussions of sex and questions about how firm his butt muscles are.
The one redeeming factor is the director, Suni Hart, especially when Linc discovers the beautiful young woman is also there for a reason. She has an unusual attitude toward sex. She likes it -- a lot. And while she may be trying to keep her secret, the little old ladies know. They make a point of causing problems that will throw the two young people together and Linc is more than happy to feed Suni’s addiction as they explore the passion that grows rapidly between them.
WINNING MOLLY – a brand new novella coming in Febraruy!
Her bike was parked in the sand by his beach house, but when Win Coulter catches up with Molly at the water’s edge and accuses her of trespassing, she wants much more from him than the right to walk on the beach. Win, a gentle computer wizard, is happy to comply with her request for hot wild sex, but he quickly becomes both lover and protector when Molly and her father are threatened.
So for all our readers, the authors of such great stories, and Claire and her staff, here's wishing you a very Happy Birthday, and many, many more!
