#Excerpt: Cursed Love: A Wicked Demon Tale



Nikki Kent thought she’d spend her entire life wandering. And hiding. She’d never wanted to put down roots or even get to know the people around her with any intimacy—intimacy was risky and she refused to put others in danger. Until she met Cooper Marquez.

Cooper hadn’t been looking for romance. His days were filled with a ranch that demanded every ounce of his attention. But from the moment Nikki set foot on his land, inquiring about a job as a veterinarian, he knew he wanted more than her help with his ranch.

Despite the sizzling attraction and the hot sex, from their first meeting something stood between them. A secret with origins in the mystical and one that had burrowed itself deep within Nikki. She needed to protect Cooper from her secret, but Cooper would risk everything to keep her safe.

Excerpt:

She should have left by now.
Nikki Kent stared out the window at the just-rising sun and knew it was already far too late to simply vanish without a word. She’d owe explanations, justifications she really didn’t want to make. But more than that, no sense of urgency pushed her out the door; she felt no need to sneak out like a thief, no pounding fear of discovery.
Her mind may have screamed at her to leave, to get the hell out now before it was too late. Her heart knew better. She knew she needed to leave, but had never in her life felt so content in one place.
She’d left without a word many times before, and from many different places. But this place was different. Everything about her life now was different. And Nikki liked that. The ranch spread out before her; the vast terrain of open land that had originally beckoned her, still enticed her with its untamed beauty.
The sun back-lighted the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and though she could barely see the cattle or the quarter horse stables in the pre-dawn light, she knew precisely where they sat. She knew where every building and every fence post lay, and loved every inch of the land.
Her love of this land paled compared to her love for the man sleeping in the bed behind her. Closing her eyes, she took a deep breath and glanced over her shoulder to where Cooper slept.
Despite the dangers of growing attached to one place, Nikki had found more at the Agua Clara Ranch than just a job. The ranch had needed a vet and Nikki, funds low and tired of moving, had needed a new job. She’d traveled the country and found work where she could, from the small family farms that dotted the northeast to the wine country in Northern California.
Nikki had a rhythm to her movements: stay one or two months, three at the absolute most, then leave as unexpectedly as she’d appeared.

#BookBlast Home is Where the Heat by Amelia James @TrashyWriter



I got hooked on trashy romance novels in junior high, but my mom took them away from me, But she couldn’t stop me from daydreaming. After I got married, I wrote some of my naughtier daydreams down and sent them to Playgirl magazine. Two of them got published. I kept daydreaming and writing stories until my dirty stories turned into trashy books.

I live in Colorado, but I’ll always be a loyal Wisconsin Cheesehead. When I’m not lusting after my next bad boy hero, I’m looking for inspiration in sci-fi and action movies, football players, morally ambiguous lawyers, muscle cars, and kick-butt chicks.

You can find me on Facebook, and on Twitter I’m known as Trashy Writer. I call myself a trashy writer because I want my readers to know that I enjoy mindless escapism as much as they do. I’m not out to win a Pulitzer Prize. (But I'm an award-winning finalist in erotica, USA Book News 2012.) I just want to help someone relax and get away from it all for a little while. I write romance, erotica and trash for fun and pleasure.


Blurb:

Home is Where the Heat Is

The Twisted Mosaic's reader favorite, Claire, has some twisted fun of her own.

Dependable paralegal Claire O'Connor knows the man of her dreams is out there waiting for her, and she's ready for him. Imagine her surprise—and delight—when she discovers not one but two men who lust for her. One adores her; the other challenges her. One makes sense; the other is a gamble.

Despite the family tragedy that shaped his past, JT Luck has only known professional success. His personal life, however, is a failure. He doesn't want a relationship, and while his 'let it ride' attitude keeps most women at a distance, Claire is eager to roll with him.

But when she finds out Kurt Langston, the office's resident computer geek, harbors a secret crush for her, she wonders if he's the safer bet. Kurt doesn't get close to people, and his feelings for Claire make no sense in his carefully ordered life. His unexpected bond with JT pushes him to take chances he never imagined.

Go all-in or go home? Either way, the heat could be more than they can handle.

Excerpt:

"Shut up!" She spun and slapped his shoulder. "We need to go now."

JT laughed and slid in front of her as he opened the door. "You're still here?" he said.

The guy who'd interrupted them adjusted his pants and smiled at Claire. His deep brown eyes sparkled and the tip of his tongue slipped between his lips as he surveyed her body.

Cute. Why'd we throw him out?

JT clenched his fists and stepped forward.

The intruding stranger stood his ground. "



Full pitcher of beer creating an urgent need."

JT rolled his eyes. "Jesus Christ."

The guy ducked past them and shut the door. Claire laughed when she heard him turn the lock.

"I'm glad you're laughing." JT moved closer to her, pressing his lips against her ear to be heard over the pounding music. "This could've gotten really ugly."

Claire stiffened. She glanced at the closed restroom door then brushed his hair back from his ear. "You think he could've turned us in?"

"Possibly. Or you could've freaked out."

"I'm okay." She closed her eyes and recalled the moment the stranger walked in. An intrigued grin had lit up his eyes and a swift bulge had filled out his pants. "He liked it."

JT laughed in her hair as he ground the ridge in his jeans between her thighs. "Think he would've liked to watch?"

"Oh yes," she sighed on his neck as his hard, warm body trapped her against the vibrating wall. Watched by a stranger.
