Excerpt:

The coolness of the water did little to sooth her soul, but she relished washing all the same. After dunking her head beneath the water, she flipped her hair back.
Another heart beat. She slid closer to her sword, hidden beneath her clothes as she scanned the mountainside. No one.
A form stepped out from behind a tree. Another few paces and he almost left the shadows behind. Her breathing became slower as she took in his garb. A barbarian. One she did not immediately recognize. He stood tall, impossibly so, his muscles bulging against his tunic.
Whoever he was, he did not belong here. Watching her bathe. She who was to be their barbaroness.
A rush of adrenaline coursed through her, and she was dressed and armed faster than one could blink twice. The shield rested lightly on her back, its weight felt unfamiliar.
"Who are you?" she demanded, pointing the tip of her blade toward him.
Calmly, coolly, as if he had no reason to fear — how she would relish correcting his thinking on that point — he advanced, face still hidden by shadows, his hands in a defenseless manner. As if she could believe he did not have a weapon or five on his person.
"I am merely thirsty." His voice was smooth, but there was an undercurrent to it that piqued her curiosity. There were few barbarians she did not know. Who was he?
But now was not the time for introductions, handsome as he was. "Find another source of water."
Still he advanced, and so she rushed toward him. Too many people had defied her as of late. The arc of her sword swooshed by and clanged against a sword he removed from his back. They fought on level with each other, neither having the clear advantage. That he held his own against her both unnerved and enthralled her. For years she had trained and honed her skill, perfecting every weapon, until no other barbarian could best her. Even her kicks and punches were lethal. A long time had passed since she last faced a worthy opponent.
And worthy he was. He used his height on her to swing wide arcs, which she had to dance away from. His smoothness with his weapon, the grace he exhibited... Perhaps I have met my match.
Match. The term her mother had often used when describing those she thought Ivy should consider to be her barbaron, when her time to rule claim. The notion of marriage was one she never considered seriously, but this barbarian had her on her toes, fighting for her life, and she loved it, embraced it. How odd this felt, especially considering she did not even know his name.
Not that she had meant match the way Mother had. An equal, perhaps? But there was no equal to a barbarian-princess.
The battle turned from foolhardy to serious when her sword came within inches of slicing off his ear. His eyes narrowed, and his breathing changed. Had she triggered his Bloodlust? In the darkness of the forest, she still had not clearly glimpsed his face yet.
His huge hand grabbed her wrist and crushed it. Still, she held on, refusing to be unarmed. His other hand dropped his sword and gripped her neck. He dragged her to him.
And that's when she smelled him. Beneath the scent of the stolen tunic he wore, his stench rolled over her, filling her nostrils and revealing who he truly was.
Not a barbarian after all.
But a goliath.

Beautiful Lies

Gina Whitney



-●-●-●-●-●-●-●-●-●-

Genre: Erotic Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Synopsis:

Enigmatic Cameron Sterling is quickly rising through the ranks at New York’s most prestigious and corrupt law firm Wotherspoon and Associates. He has willfully avoided any meaningful personal relationships and is content to casually hook up with Becky, a young woman who fancies herself as his actual girlfriend. As a child, Cam witnessed his father murder his mother, and this was the genesis of his relationship-avoidance issue. The only thing he cares about now is becoming a partner at Wotherspoon and Associates. Cam is obsessed with the promotion and will not let anything—or anyone—stand in his way.

But when Cam crosses paths with Lilly Amsel, a fashion model, the edges of his well laid plans begin to fray. At first, Cam is unimpressed by Lilly’s exaggerated effervescence and entitled air. However, he is taken aback by her incredible beauty—legs as long as an Amazon’s, silky honeyed-hair, and blazing body. This undeniable physical attraction disturbs Cam on all levels, leaving him intrigued by Lilly and wanting to get away from her at the same time. 

Lilly is strongly aroused by Cam’s moody presence. His dark, erotic looks and heady scent ignite long-dormant embers of wanton desire buried deep within her. Practically hypnotized, she finds her body reacting in the most surprising and carnal of ways. However, the two separate and never expect to see each other again, but somehow they manage to still linger on each other. Lilly’s larger-than-life persona that Cam initially encountered is a sham, though. It is a well-crafted costume that masks deeply rooted insecurity and an unfortunate dependence on prescription drugs. This stems from a horrifically abusive childhood that she is trying desperately, and unsuccessfully, to forget. Her mediocre modeling career was the perfect vehicle for her to escape that tumult and simultaneously receive acceptance and praise. It did not matter to Lilly that the kudos were based on superficial assumptions. She was still almost satisfied with the result and what modeling could not fix, the drugs could. 

Enthrallment and lust have other plans, though. Despite their best efforts to stay apart, Cam and Lilly come back together and embark on a tempestuous affair. For both of them, a torrid weekend getaway in the mountains unleashes years of pent-up sexual frustration and destroys inhibitions. Cam has no problem taking charge as he relishes Lilly’s delicious inner nectar. Again and again, Cam delivers Lilly pleasure she has never known before, leaving her trembling as she reclaims the goddess within.

Author Interview

Hi LaQuette and welcome to my blog!

Firstly can you tell us about yourself?
Ø  Hi Bella, thank you so much for having me.  I’m LaQuette, I’ve been an avid romance lit fan since I was sixteen years old. 

How long have you been writing?
Ø  I started writing from a very early age.  I had a really hard time expressing myself verbally as a kid.  I always felt like I could never get my words together, especially when I was angry.  Writing gave me the opportunity to think clearly about what I wanted to say and arrange my thoughts in a concise manner.  This led me to journal writing.  When I was eighteen, I started tinkering with writing romance when my mom gave me my first desktop computer on Christmas of 1995.  Since then, I’ve always known that writing—especially romance writing—was going to play a significant role in my future.

What inspired you to start writing novels for your chosen genre?
Ø  There was just something that was almost magical about the romance genre.  I’m a huge HEA fan, Cinderella is my favourite Disney movie for that very same reason.  There is something about people connecting and falling in love that makes my insides tingle.

Are there any other genres you’ve written?
Ø  I’ve spent a great deal of my time writing for academia, but every time I’ve sat down to write for pleasure, it’s always been romance.

Have you published any other novels, if so can you share the details?
Ø  No, My Beginning is my debut published novel.  Although I have several manuscripts written, My Beginning was the first one I decided to publish.

Are you working on anything new right now and can you tell us more?
Ø  Yes, I am currently working on a piece called, Heart of the Matter.  It’s a story about a police detective whose past traumatic experiences with men have shaped her perception of everything in her life.  It affects her personal interactions, her occupational selection and performance, and of course, her love life.  Her work causes her to cross paths with a man who decides to make it his mission to break down all of the barriers she’s erected in her life.

What motivates and inspires you to write?
Ø  Writing is an escape for me, it allows me to step out of my reality and exist in a world of my own creation for a few moments.  Writing about love and relationships just adds to the fantasy factor for me.  In real life, good people don’t always win at love.  In my books, they struggle for it, but in the end they find the perfect love for them.  Who wouldn’t want to write that?

Can you offer any advice to the fledgling authors, just starting out?
Ø  Although I’m not new to writing, I am new to publication.  I’m still learning a great deal myself.  But what I would advise anyone who is attempting authorship, make sure you nourish your skill.  There is no author who writes perfection the first time they sit down to their keyboard or pen and pencil.  Writing is made better by revision.  The more you write, the more you pour over your work with a critical eye, the better it will be.  Typos can happen to the best writers and editors, however, the quality of the story, the quality of the writer’s ability to develop and execute a story, these things become stronger when you write-reread-write.

What is/are your all-time favourite novel/s?
Ø  That’s a tough one, I have so many favourites.  Mistress to the Beast by Eve Vaughn, the Italian Knights series by Billy London, the Brooklyn Sinners series by Avril Ashton, the Home/Family series by Cardeno C., and the Faith, Love, & Devotion series by Terre Michaels.

Who is/are your all-time favourite author/s?
Ø  Zane, Avril Ashton, Cardeno C., R.J. Scott, Chris Owen, Eve Vaughn, and Victoria Christopher Murray.

What are you reading at the moment & would you recommend it to us?
Ø  Stay (Blackcreek series #2) by Riley Hart.  Yes, I absolutely would.  I’ve read both books in this series, and they were both well-written and engaging.  I’ve read all three of Riley Heart’s publications, and I haven’t regretted purchasing one of her books yet.

Do you have a favourite quote, if so what is it?
Ø  “The giants upon whose shoulders I stand.”—Isaac Newton

Do you decide on your book title first, or do you write the book and then the title is decided later?
Ø  Book titles are fluid for me.  I may start out with one title, but as the book develops and the story becomes more solid, I usually change it.  Usually I want the title to be representative of a recurring theme, or a pivotal character in the book. 

When working on your current novel, were there any moments when you thought:- OMG  what am I doing with this plot line? Or:  Who are these people I created? etc…
Ø  There was a significant time lapse between when I created the first half of My Beginning, and the latter half.  Honestly, I was at two very different places in my life emotionally and artistically.  When I decided I was finally going to publish it, I just sort of picked up where I left off and started writing.  It wasn’t until I finished it and began the editing process that I saw the mess I’d made.  The book was very disjointed; I wasn’t the same author, my writing style had grown, evolved, and changed.  I literally had to start from the beginning and rewrite it so that it read as if the same person, the same mind created the piece.

Do you have a day job, other than writing – if so can you share?
Yes I do, I teach college writing and I’m a respiratory therapist.

What is your preferred method of writing:-  The plot pre-planned from day one, or just go with the flow and see what happens next?
Ø  I don’t create a rigid outlines.  I usually know from the beginning what major occurrences I wish to include in the story.  After I’ve decided that, I usually just sit down and type, figuring out ways to weave the parts together as I go.

Are there any little tips or tricks you use to get to know your characters better?
Ø  I usually start out with a free writing session where I just jot down identity traits about a given character.  When I have a close idea of who and what I want the character to be and decide the best way to fit them into the storyline, I then start researching everything there is to know about them.  Identifying the real-world particulars for an individual in my concocted situations helps to develop and solidify the character for me.

If you don’t like a character you’re writing about, what do you do?
            a. Kill them off instantly
             b. Get over it and learn to like them
             c. Give them a whole new personality
            d. or something else – do tell?! Please!
Ø  e. none of the above. Lol 
My characters are persistent and downright disrespectful at times.  They scream and yell at me when they don’t like the way I’m writing them.  They would never let me rest if I simply deleted them when they made me mad. Lol

Do you like to write while listening to music and if so, does your book have particular playlist you’d like to share?
Ø  Music brings out the best words in me.  I don’t have a particular soundtrack.  I do, however, go to particular artists when I’m looking to create certain emotions in a scene.  For instance, when the female protagonist in this book is discovering love in the eyes of her male lead, I was listening to Musiq Soulchild.  I find that his music is soulful, sensual, and inspirational all at the same time.  Those were the emotions I wanted to convey in those scenes.  I have to feel it in order to write it.

Do you have any weird writing rituals? (Such as, you can only start writing after you’ve scoffed all the choc-chip cookies and drank 3 cups of full-caff coffee?  Or only after you’ve listened to a certain song or playlist? etc… do share)
Ø  I like to write at night when the kids and the hubby are asleep and the house is quiet.  I pour myself a tall light and sweet cup of coffee, and the characters in my head and I have meaningful conversations.

Do you have any input in the Cover design of your novel?
Ø  Yes, I do, my vision is a strong influence on the cover of this work, and my upcoming titles as well.

What is the very best thing about writing for you?
Ø  The opportunity to take something out of my imagination and turn it into something concrete that others can enjoy.

How many novels/books do you typically read in a month?
Ø  Too many to count.  I can read a full-length novel in a day or two, if my kids take naps.  I usually start a new one every 2-3 days. 

What is your favourite genre to read at the moment?
Ø  Male/male romance.  Enjoying stepping away from the traditional love story and exploring other representations of love at the moment.

Who’s your greatest inspiration/s to date?
Ø  My hubby, he really is my Prince Charming in the flesh.  I just want everyone else to experience that kind of love, even if it’s only between the pages of one of my books.

Are you a morning person or a night owl or an inbetweener?
Ø  Hell no! I hate mornings.  I’m only up early because my children get up early like they have jobs to go to.  At 4 and 1, I can’t let them roam the house unsupervised, so I have to drag my tired self out of the bed and mainline coffee until I can function and become reasonably human.  I function better in the night, night owl all the way.

What’s your least favourite part of the writing process?
Ø  Nothing, I love it all.  Conception, organization, execution, editing, rewriting, I love it all.

How long does it typically take for you to write a novel?
Ø  I don’t think I’ve ever timed myself.  I know it takes a lot less time for me to write it than edit it.  The editing and rewriting process can drag out because I’m overly critical of my work.

How many hours a day do you dedicate to your writing?
Ø  I don’t really block out a set amount of hours.  I try to write three thousand words a day.  If my kids are asleep or out of the house, I can knock that out in a couple of hours.  If they’re home, I may have to write half of that during naptime, and the remaining half at bedtime.

What is the one book you can’t live without?
Ø  Not just one book, three: Faith & Fidelity, Duty & Devotion, and Cherish (Books 1, 3, & 4) of the Faith, Love, & Devotion series by Tere Michaels.  Love these stories.

Are you a:
a.      Laptop Writer
b.      Desktop Writer
c.       iPad Writer
d.      Pen and Paper Writer
Ø  I’m e. a Microsoft Surface RT writer.

If you had a choice  – a dream come true - which would be your preference: Your books serialised  -  a weekly show or made into movies?
Ø  Definitely a movie.  I write what I see.  When I am writing a scene I have to picture it and feel it.  It has to be emotionally and visually authentic.  I try to create pictures that my readers will see unfold before their eyes.

Can you tell us why you think we’d love to read your novel?
Ø  It’s a story about finding what you most need in the most unlikely of places.  A journey of growth and discovery, but mostly, it’s about two wonderful people fighting through whatever obstacles they have to in order to find, and keep their love.  It’s a real-life romance and everyone needs a little romance in their real lives.

Finally, what 7 words best sum up your novel?
Ø  Love, laughter, life, growth, sensuality, professionalism, and happiness.

Book Excerpt

Genesis noticed something different about him.  Usually Drew was very calm and jovial around her.  He rarely made things intense, but tonight there was a sense of power behind his eyes.  When she finally reached him, he said nothing; he simply wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her to him.  Before Genesis had a chance to react, he lifted one hand from her waist and secured it in her loose locks.  His mouth fastened onto hers making her moan from somewhere deep within her.
Her arms lifted of their own accord and latched around his neck drawing her closer into his web.  Drew tore his mouth away from hers and found the tender spot between her neck and her shoulder.  He must have sensed her legs giving way because the next thing Genesis knew she was hoisted up with her legs around his waist.  Drew was holding her so tightly she could feel his heart beating as if it were in her own chest.
Genesis was drifting in the sea of pleasure Drew was skillfully creating.  She was almost completely immersed in the passion Drew was inciting when she heard a familiar voice in her mind.
No man will ever want you, you’ll never be able to please any man, you’re pitiful.
She pressed herself deeper into Drew’s body, hoping his possessive kisses would chase away her tormentor’s words.  She was holding onto Drew tightly, but the incessant sound in her head—first a small whisper, now a full grown scream—began pulling her attention away from Drew.
You are wasting his time; you can’t give him what he needs.  Sooner or later, he’s going to toss you to the side too.
She pulled herself out of Drew’s arms so quickly that she almost fell backward into the water.  Drew reached out and swiftly steadied her on two feet.
“Drew, I can’t do this,” she said as she tried to step away from him, but he pulled her back into his embrace.
“Why not Genesis?” he asked as he moved a hand back into her hair, trapping her against him, forcing her to look up into burning chocolate eyes.  “Don’t stand here and tell me that you don’t want me, because I can feel your desire for me,” he pulled her head roughly to him, taking command of her lips, forcing them open and sweeping his smooth tongue inside her mouth.  “Hell,” he breathed against her lips as he took one final lap before tilting her head to looking into her eyes, “I can taste it.”
He was correct, she couldn’t deny she wanted him, but as her mother had told her often, she was never too old for her wants to hurt her, and not having Drew would certainly hurt her.
“Drew, a sexual liaison between the two of us would not work, it would blow up in our faces, and I don’t want to cause friction between you and my brothers.”
“You think this is just about sex to me Genesis?” he asked, a hard edge coloring his voice.  “Understand this; I am a world renowned recording artist.  I could have a different chick in my bed every night of the week if I chose to.  If I just wanted a piece of ass, all I would have to do is send a one-word text and I would have free pussy waiting for me to fuck at my leisure.”
His harsh tone made her close her eyes while an unexpected shiver crawled up her back.  Why did the thought of him sleeping with someone else suddenly make Genesis cold?
“I don’t want to just have sex with you; I want to be with you”
Her unused voice cracked as she said his name.  “Drew,” she swallowed, attempting to lubricate the walls of her dry mouth and throat, “you don’t know me well enough to want to be with me.  I am the woman that has been closest to you in proximity during a very difficult part of your life.  It’s only natural that you would have a confused affection for me.  It will wear off in a matter of time.”
There it was, her rational brain had finally decided to put in an appearance.  That line sounded almost believable to her.
“Bullshit,” he said.  The lines of his face became sharper as he spoke.  “You want me just as much as I want you.  Why are you fighting me?”
He still held her tightly, her skin burning where his hands made contact.  Why the hell was her body reacting to this man’s anger this way?  She should be enraged, she should be mad as hell and telling Drew where the hell he could step off.  Instead, her skin was humming with anticipation of his touch with a growing hunger that was making the walls of her womb clench.
Dammit!
“Drew I am a medical professional who has been made responsible for your care.  She kept her eyes closed as she spoke, hoping to get her body back under her control instead of his.  “It is unethical for me to allow anything romantic to transpire while you are under my care.”
Drew shook his head.  She knew her reason was valid, she knew her words gave the impression of respectability coated in veracity.  But even though she was doing her best impression of reliable, above-board medical professional, Drew’s tight features poked gaping holes through her perfectly painted picture.
“You’re lying,” he said through clenched teeth.  “This has nothing to do with medical ethics Genesis, tell me the truth, or I’m going to keep coming after you, and eventually you will give in to me.  This thing between us is too strong for you to ignore it forever.  We’ve been dancing around this chemistry between us since my mother’s funeral; I’m tired of playing the ignore-it-and-it-will-go-away game.  Either you come clean with me, or I’m just going to wear you down.”
Drew pulled her close to him and planted his mouth atop hers once more.  She began to lose herself in his kiss; just as before she crumbled in his arms becoming almost as fluid as the water surrounding them.  When he was satisfied that he had proven his point, he ripped his mouth away from hers leaving her mouth searching for that lost heat.
“That is not confused affection that is just plain old lust Genesis.  Has it been that long since you’ve experienced that, or maybe you’ve never experienced it at all?”
