First draft of Tainted…DONE

It’s been a long path writing Tainted. When I wrote the first of the series, Intoxication, it took me less than a month to get the first draft down. The story purged from my imagination like chocolate from Wonka’s Chocolate river . Tainted took more time, more like months to get the first draft. But as I wrote that last sentence, I saved it everywhere, so afraid it would vanish from some cyber crash.

The good thing about it taking so long to purge this book from my mind is that as I am now going through it to polish it. I’m amazed. Amazed that this is my book. Have you ever reread your novel and think, “Holy crap. I wrote this. Really me?”

That is exactly how I feel. It’s not bad, it good. First and for most I’m an reader. I have always and will always been a reader. I may not have the time to read my average four books a week anymore, but I still have one on my tablet, and a print book on my nightstand and okay… I have an audio book I listen to when I can’t read.

So I’m polishing Tainted right now. Putting in the chapters, fleshing out the scenes, adding details that were overlooked. It’s fun to see the progress of what I created and how I can make it better. I have a few days to finish up the polishing then I’m going to send it a few beta readers, then to the editors. But the next book is on my mind. I have a brief outline mapped out and the characters in it. Coveted is my current WIP and after finishing Tainted, I may have a book in there following another character I introduced. Mmmm. So many options. Happy Typing.

Sexy Six Sentences on my Current WIP, Tainted

My current WIP is Book 2 of the Addicted to Fang, TAINTED. This book is nice, because it follows Rick from Book 1, Intoxication. Several Reviewers have asked for Rick’s Story and here it’s a big one. Tainted is the first novel I’ve written that is a true love Menage a Trois. I’m just hoping I made it work. So here’s my sexy six sentences.

His hands cupped her ass. Hard finger pads dug into her flesh pulling her to him. She put her hands on his shoulders to steady her trembling body. He lifted her off the bar and slid her down his body until her heels touched the ground. He whispered in her ear. “You’re not wearing any underwear. Do you know how hot that is?”

What do you think? Tainted is still in the first draft stage, several revisions need to be done to complete the story. How many of you would like to have this done to you?

Welcome to Cosmo Hump Day. Do you like to play with food in bed? What do you like? From the Sex/Love section of Cosmopolitan this week, the article on How to Use Food in Bed  it tells some of the good with the bad. It goes without says to practice safe sex, but safe for you body as well.

OF course the ice cream toppings are a fun way to play with you food. Chocolate is so sweet, you tend to enjoy every lick and nibble.

But what I enjoyed from this article isn’t about what I can learn in the bedroom but what I could get my characters to do on the pages. In my novels the Vampires don’t desire food until they meet their true soul mates. I hadn’t played with nibbling food, strawberries, chocolate syrup and whip cream off different parts of the body. And I think in Tainted, my current WIP, I have the perfect characters to have foreplay with food.

So tell me, what have you done that you’ve enjoyed with food? Suggestions on how to make the scenes real, steamy and melt in your hands great read?

Then come and enjoy.

Six Sentences of Painted with Pleasure:

“Pardon me, Alejandro, but could you tell me how you crafted the artwork?” Victor asked.

Laurel Opened her month to object, but she couldn’t keep from noticing just how Alejandro’s pants hugged his cock like  a beacon.

He ran his hand through his shaggy brown hair as he looked around the room. His blue gaze pierced Laurel as he spoke, “There are many ways to start an orgasm and only one way to finish. These paintings are lovely examples of the journey to that one pivotal moment.” He let his gaze slide around the room, questioning everyone. “No?”

Cosmos Hump Day… How to turn him on…

http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/images/CouplesPartners_g216-Couple_Making_Love_In_Bed_p90876.html

“Couple Making Love In Bed” by imagerymajestic

Cosmos… what would a girl do without their tantalizing articles? Mmmm. So many choices to do and so many things to think about. But I found a few that I could definitely write about. In their newest article on Cosmopolitan’s Sex/Love website, “30 Things to Do with a Naked Man.”

So many to choose from, so little time to speak on them all. Let’s go with my top three choices that would go in my current WIP….

Slide 7… Find his G-Spot. The only question is in my current WIP who will be stroking his g-spot?

Slide 12… Boss him Around. Yupp. this is a good one.

Slide 20… Taunt him. This paired with the near touch does speak loudly on paper. Love Taunting my characters. Adds a lovely tension to the plot line.

And for Honorable Mention… Slide 30…Make it a Quickie. This is featured in my current WIP. AND it is a hot scene.

Take a look at the article, see what you like and let me know what you would love to read about.

Bare your necks and ramp up your sex drive… Get ready for a sizzling ride.

“Just keep your thoughts to yourself,” Dominic replied, and moved toward the bar. With a tap and a gentle mental push to the men around him, he was at the bar just in time to see the brunette drop a pitcher o water down her silver tank top. Her taut nipples strained against her fabric and for the first time in centuries, he was close to losing hiss control. His fangs scraped against his lower lip and he had to focus on the topic at hand, not what he wanted in his hands. Sex screamed through his body and it took every second of his long life just to keep from licking her skin, catching her essence on his tongue.

A Review from Melenas Reviews

I’m so delighted to get have an honest review from Melenas Reviews. Intoxication Addicted with Fang, (book 1) yielded a 3 1/2 rating. I am so excited I had to share it with all of you. It’s been a lovely holiday season and this is just icing on the cake. So much to be thankful and blessed for this year.

Here is a small taste of the review from Melenas Reviews. It is the two sentences that caused chills to chase over my skins because when I wrote this book, these characters drew the story from me. I had never thought of their romance in this way, but it is so perfectly written. I wanted to pull up my book and read it again. 🙂

Here is the teaser:

…Dena De Paulo knows when to put sex in the book and when to make Dominic beg for Ella’s touch on him. These two was hard to see them apart for they belonged to one another right in the first chapter.

Cosmo Hump Day…Sex Toys

Surfing the Cosmo Sex/Love articles and came across a goodie…  Sex toys you’ve got to try. Okay. I know right… why wouldn’t a naughty erotic writer not read this article. Let me tell you, yes I learn something new today. I just may have to put some of these fun toys in my next book.

So here are a few of toys that were novel worthy.
Bondage Tape

Bondage tape, sicks to only itself and not to your skin or hair. This holds so many possibilities in my stories. Of course when I saw this, my thoughts went to the third book in my series and the underground sex and blood clubs. This will be a great way cover and reveal skin and veins.

Me Vibe II

Me Vibe ii

The next one, Me Vib,  is interesting and could play nicely into a playfully naughty scene of stimulation. I’m still playing with the ideas,  but I think it would interesting to see a scene where the male is pleasing the female or more to the point the female is stimulating herself while the hero is watching. Love when inspiration strikes.

Babeland Official Store, BLND-3051 Lavish Nipple Clamps, babeland.com

Lavish Nipple Clamps

Nipple Clamps. This is interesting because of all the different varies you can get in Nipple Clamps. Resently, I used nipple clamps in a short vampire bondage erotic novella for my publisher. In the novella, I used the run of the mill silver nipple clamps. Wish I would have done a more little digging, because these would have put more depth to my character.

There were many more sex toys to read about. Some could work for my novels, some not so much. But it sure is fun to be inspired. 😉

For more Sex Toys you’ve gotta try, read more at Cosmopolitian. Happy reading on Cosmo Hump Day.

Falling Leaves Part 2

She knew she should say no. Hand him the cooler of blood and walk back to her car. But he was just too damn hot to turn down, especially the way his hair curled just below his ears. What was a little nibble anyway?

She took that last step unto the porch. “A little nibble.”

His smile spread across his face all the way to his eyes. Adding a little crinkle around the edges. “Let’s go inside beside the fire. At least enjoy the warmth.” He reached out his hand. She grasped it and followed him inside. High end stainless steel appliance grace on wall in a very modern kitchen while a rustic large roaring fire on the opposite wall. Deep couches framed the large fire place. Heat radiated from it, warming the chill off her cheeks.

She unzipped her jacket and slipped it off. She keep her gaze on the fire, anything but on the partially nude vampire beside her. But when he brushed up against her, she couldn’t resist a peek at his chiseled body. This was no gym rat body, but one of a hard-working-do-it-yourself man. Rough palms, strong biceps, and broad shoulders to kiss.

“May I?” He asked tilting her chin up, meeting his gaze.

“Yes.” Sarah croaked out. “Yes.”

His head bent, his breath moving over her chin. She mentally told her self to calm down, but her body was on fire. There was something about this vampire. He was beyond her every expectations.

His lips dragged along her pulse, back and forth. His lips hovered, teased. She wanted to scream, plead even for him to bite her. But she held her ground. Then his fangs slipped in to her neck. Delicately. Smoothly. She moaned in the pleasure of it. She gripped his shoulders, holding tight as his muscles twitched beneath her fingers. She felt his presence in her head and she smiled. He sent one thought through her body. One image. All heat and fire and as he took a pull on her neck she orgasmed. His rough fingers grasped her around the waist and he held her. He closed his fang marks with his tongue before he walked her to the couch.

“Thank you.” He said. In a blink he was gone and as Sarah blinked again, he handed her a glass of red wine and a good book.

She laughed. Her night ended just the way she wanted it after all.

Excerpt:

Addicted to Fang: Intoxicaiton by Dena de Paulo

Available at Ravenous Romance!

Clothes flew over her head and landed in the pile on the bed
as Ella Hustad struggled to pull the little black miniskirt out of the
bottom of the closet. “Finally,” she mumbled as she stood holding

the slippery little skirt. She pressed the small piece of cloth to her
body and peered at her reflection in the mirror.
“Kate!” Ella shouted through the open door. “I need some
advice.”
Staccato footsteps clicked down the hallway. “Seriously, you’re
not dressed yet?” Kate Berry said just as she rounded the doorway.
She froze, gasped, then turned around.
Ella caught a glance of her normal bar outfit of stilettos, short
shorts, and a black tank top with the words, The Bar stitched across
her generous breasts. Her long blond hair sat in a high ponytail that
swished from side to side.
“You could have warned me you’re naked. Damn, Ella. We
need to open The Bar now, and you don’t have a thing on!”
Ella dropped the skirt, picked up the floor fan, and held it up to
her breasts. “You don’t understand. I’m burning up. Like it’s summer with no air conditioning.”
Sighing, Kate moved into the room, pushed the clothes off the
corner of the bed, and sat on the edge. She darted a glance at Ella
before she searched the mound on the bed, then pulled out a silver
tank top and threw it in Ella’s direction. “Do you feel sick?”
“No, but my skin is crawling. I have more energy than should
be legal. Hell, I killed the batteries in my dildo again.” Ella pulled
on the tank and looked down. “I feel like I’m going to explode,
like I’m in heat or something.”
“Again.” Kate rolled her eyes. “And you’re acting like you
were you biologically induced with feline hormones or paranormal
shit?”
“You never know.” Ella grabbed the skirt from the floor and
tugged it on. “Maybe I have X-files imprinted in my DNA.”
“Right.” Kate grabbed the hairspray from the dresser, and
moved toward Ella.

Falling Leaves

Autumn’s Harvest Blog Hop Nov 9th -12th

Leaves crunched under her feet as she approached the wood cabin by the moonlight. The light in the window her only evidence someone was inside. Waiting for her.

A chill ripped through the clearing swirling wood smoke around her. If she wasn’t here for business, she would love to sit next to a roaring fire with a glass of wine and a good book. She hugged her long jacket closer. Thoughts of a what her evening could possible be, broke as the front door swung inward. the tall man stood just inside the threshold with only  a blue towel wrapped around his waist.

He ran hand through his hair and over his short trim bread. “Thanks for coming so quickly.”

“It’s a little far from the parking area, at first I thought I was heading the wrong way.”

He smiled as he stepped onto the porch. “What can I say, I’m partial to being a hermit.”

“At least you can see the stars through the bare trees.” She made her way up the steps. “Hi, I’m Sarah.”

“Sarah, I’m Anthony.” He smiled, his fangs lengthening. “It’s been a week since I last fed.”

Sarah breathed deeply. “Don’t you have a steady blood supply shipped to you?”

“Yes, but they seem to have forgotten all about me.” Anthony said.

“I have a cooler full of blood.” Sarah said she raised the blue cooler in her hand.

He nodded. “Could I beg you, for a warm supply.”

Sarah knew she should say no, but being out here alone in this rustic setting did something to her libido…

Come back tomorrow to read the rest of Sarah’s story.

The perfect autumn weather reminded me of how I love to take a walk in the moonlight on a brisk autumn evening smelling the wood smoke through the air. Of course, it won’t be a perfect story without a little bit of fang. 🙂

Available at Ravenous Romance!

Blurb: Telepath and succubus-in-training Ella Hustad’s fate changes the day she discovers her survival hinges on the slip of a vampire’s fang. It’s a sensation that both terrifies her and excites. Accepting Dominic Sebastian, the vampire governor of the eastern quadrant, as her savior might work for her body but she’s not sure if the rest of her is up to the challenge. His blissfully silent mind, his metallic gaze and the feel of his fangs is all she’ll ever need… but is it what she wants?

While on the hunt to save an unregistered active blood benefactor, Dominic falls under the hypnotic charm of Ella’s blood. But that’s not the only attraction. Desire, explosive and unrestrained, forges an unexpected bond between them. When another vampire wants Ella dead, Dominic must find a way to protect her or risk losing the one woman who can satisfy all of his fantasies.
