A Kept Woman on the Alpha Male Madness GiveawayHop


Welcome to Erotic Notions and the Alpha Male Madness Giveaway Hop - whew that's a mouthful.
Alpha males - you know we love them. In my erotic contemporary romance, Derek Davenport is about as alpha as they make them. He's a high power businessman who before he graduated from Harvard School of Business bought his father's company out from under him. He's a man who knows what he wants and knows how to get it.
Until Arianne enters his life. And you know it takes a good woman to bring an Alpha to his knees.
This is the new cover- Apple didn't like the old cover
Erotic Contemporary ( X rated)

Heat – 5 hot peppers
Blurb - 
Desperately unemployed, Arianne, answers an ad that reads Woman Wanted. With miniscule hours and excellent pay, she accepts the position of courtesan to Derek, a handsomely dashing man, whom she discovers is a billionaire. Engaging in a game of cat and mouse, will they drive each other crazy…or will they fall in love first?

Excerpt - WARNING - Hot

With a quick shove, she pushed Derek onto his back. Her eyes shone with a bestial passion and her voice was low. “I want you inside me. I should be exhausted and sore but I want more." Kneeling next to him, she stroked his flaccid penis.
“I don’t think there is anything left. I’m spent,” he said.
 “I want you.” Her voice was edged with a passionate obsession. Something inside had taken control. Derek had no right to refuse her. She wanted him and he would please her. She straddled him and sat on his chest. “I want your mouth on me and in me. I want you to taste our mingled sex. Push me to my edge. Make me scream.” Before Derek could reply, Arianne settled her demanding pussy over his mouth, placed her hands under his head and held him in place.
* * * *
Puzzled by, but acutely aware of, the obsession that had overtaken Arianne, Derek slid his tongue along the outer edges of her folds. Fluttering little licks, he teased her. He could taste and smell the mixture of his sperm, her juices and seawater. When he touched her clitoris, her body tensed. It was as if she had never released herself in their lovemaking. He could sense she was as aroused now as when he had her in the water. With the tip his tongue he flicked at her. Each touch brought a hissing release as if a whip had caressed her skin.
The muscles in his jaw and neck began to scream, but he didn’t stop. Arianne’s hips rocked to and fro. Glancing up he could see her erect nipples, hardened from her inflamed passion. Her eyes were closed. Her face contorted with an emotion he couldn’t fathom. Her chest rose and fell with each pant. With an unexpected suddenness she released his head, allowing it to fall back onto the wet sand.
She pulled away and rotated one-hundred and eighty degrees then slipped his semi-hard cock into her mouth. Gripping him like a vice, she slid her wet lips along his shaft, urging him, forcing him to become aroused. Her hands alternated between tenderly squeezing and rolling his testicles to dragging her nails along his inner thighs. At last she had achieved her goal. He was fully erect and fully aroused. He struggled to get up, to place her on her back, but Arianne turned and stopped him. Pressing his shoulders into the sand she said, “No, I am mounting you.”
She dropped onto him, banging her buttocks onto his stomach. Derek tried to thrust up into her, but Arianne grabbed a testicle and softly directed, “Don’t move.”
He froze in obedience.
“Look at me. I want to watch your eyes as you come. I want to see the burning desire in your soul and I want to see the moment it’s released.”

Here's what people are saying about A Kept Woman –
A Kept Woman has just become one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. I know I’ve got several but from the blurb alone I was intrigued and had to know what happens next. When a blurb can give you loads of questions you are dying to know the answers too, you just know it has to be a good book.
There is a very satisfying HEA at the end. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by the talented Ms Devore. Her style of writing is multi-layered, making this book both plot-driven and character-driven. With well-developed characters, both main and secondary, and a plot that takes you smoothly through a complicated story, A KEPT WOMAN is not to be missed.
So I know you just gotta have this book - so here are the buy links :-)

Capri's Fate on the Authors in Bloom BlogHop

Welcome to the Authors in Bloom Blog Hop on Erotic Notions

In my erotic fantasy - Capri's Fate – Thall decides to surprise Capri with making dinner. He finds a cook book and then chaos ensues in her kitchen as he's never cooked before, doesn't understand the directions and can't find any ingredients. 
Excerpt - (I kept it G rated. If you want to read the hot excerpt - see tab above - Capri's Fate - Hot excerpt)
 Inserting the key in the lock, she opened her door. Capri stepped toward the foyer and glanced around. The sweet aroma of flowers tickled her nose. The room was exactly as it was supposed to be, except one thing. Thall was no longer asleep on the couch.
The bang of a pot drew her attention to her kitchen. Peering around the corner, Capri stifled a giggle. Her first impression, Thall was attempting to cook dinner. Her second, it wasn't going well. Pasta, garlic, flour, a bottle of olive oil, an unopened package of chocolate chips, bottles of spices, sugar, two cake pans and several pots were scattered across the kitchen counter.
Thall glanced up from a book lying on the table. "There's no food in your kitchen. How the heck do you eat?" He rubbed his hand over his hair. "I was going to make supper. Spaghetti and chocolate cake. Your favorites."
He rose from the chair, crossed the kitchen, grabbed the package of pasta and waved it at her. "Spaghetti you got."
"Yay me."
"But for sauce you need—" He returned to the book he was reading and ran his finger down the page. "Olive oil. Got it. Garlic. Got it. And some spices. What you're missing is: onions, basil and mushrooms."
Capri pulled open the cupboard door on her left, reached inside and pulled out a jar. "Ahem."
He glanced up from the book. His eyes narrowed, glaring at the jar she was holding.
"If you remember, I was away. It's not a good idea to keep perishables while you're gone. Unless you want a biology project growing in your fridge when you return. Instead. Ta da." She waggled the bottled. "Sauce in a jar."
He took the bottle from her hand and matched the ingredients with what was in his cookbook. "Thyme. Uh huh. Peppers, onions. Good. What's natural flavoring? It's not listed in your cookbook."
"Better you not know."
Thall furrowed his brow and handed back the jar.
"Let me get dressed and we'll go get some groceries because I'm guessing this isn't going to impress you." She reached into another cupboard and pulled out a box. "Cake in a box."
"Cake. In a box?" He followed her to her bedroom. "You eat cake from a box?"
She laughed and kicked her shoes into the closet. "On a bad day, Thall, I'll eat the icing right out of the can."
He hunched his shoulder, scratched his head then crossed the room to her dresser. Reaching down, he pulled open the fourth drawer and pulled out her red silk bustier. He turned and held it out. "Why don't you wear this?"
"Grocery shopping?"
He nodded.
Capri fumbled on how to reply then released a sigh of exasperation. "You do mean under my clothes and not just that?"

This is the recipe he was trying to follow. 

Spaghetti with Sauce (Plain or With Meat)

olive oil - extra virgin is best
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper
1 6 oz can tomato paste
2 32 oz cans tomato sauce
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced and sautéed in butter (optional – I dislike mushrooms so they rarely go in my sauce)
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef – sautéed (optional – this recipe works meatless as well)

parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Directions: Brown onion and garlic in olive oil with bay leaves, oregano, basil, Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. (If you are using the ground beef and mushrooms – sauté them separately then add to onion/garlic mixture.)  Add tomato paste, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Stir well and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. This keeps so can make on weekend to have on Monday.

Closer to dinner time. Cook spaghetti. Whip up a Caesar Salad. Heat oven and cook garlic toast. Open a bottle of a nice Chianti.

Serve 1 of 2 ways – 1. drain cooked spaghetti and toss into sauce. Mix well. Place on a serve platter. Cover with Parmesan. Or – 2. Drain spaghetti. Place in a bowl. Pour sauce into a bowl and cover with Parmesan.
