New cover for an old favorite! EDUCATING ETHAN by Jennifer Lynne #SexyRomance

Educating Ethan Cover - Jennifer LynneI’m delighted to show off the brand-new cover for EDUCATING ETHAN, my sexy romance that sadly was left without a home earlier this year when one of my publishers closed its doors.

First published by Breathless Press back in February 2012, EDUCATING ETHAN will be re-released in October of this year, featuring this lovely new cover designed by the talented Jay Aheer.

With three additional years of writing experience under my belt, I’m also taking a good look at the manuscript to hopefully enhance what is already there, without changing the story too much. EDUCATING ETHAN is my sister’s favorite, so I say to her – I promise, Sis! Definitely not too many changes!

Here’s the blurb:

Who is educating who in this cougar encounter? Ida intends to build herself a new life and a catering career, after a painful divorce. When the much younger Ethan moves in across the street, an innocent flirtation quickly becomes serious when the two realize their age difference is no barrier to all-consuming passion.

Ethan is the exact opposite of what Ida is looking for. He is young and vibrant, with his life and his dreams still ahead of him, whereas hers are all in the past. Can Ethan, who is fighting his own demons in the form of a car accident, failed marriage and forced career change, convince Ida to overcome the past and live for the moment?

This novelette-length sexy romance is a re-release of a previously published eBook.

Heat level: sexy (not erotic) 2.5/5

The A to Z of #Erotic Author Research #AmWriting

a.k.a. My really weird internet browser history

Ever wondered what sort of things an erotic author might research? My Google browser history is rather eclectic, to say the least. As an author I look up whatever comes into my head during the development and writing of a story, and as a consequence, some of my searches can be rather random!

Of course, as an erotic author, much of my research is sex-based – especially for some of the less “vanilla” erotic romance books such as Sex Club Secrets, Not Vanilla (Spanking) or Not Vanilla (Bondage). My first point of call when I’m not sure is usually my internet browser.

What color is an “intense green eye”? Where do all those extra arms and legs go in a foursome sex scene? When was the first sex toy invented…and what the heck was it? If my hero is a Sagittarius, what star sign is his perfect match? What type of rope is best for a beginner in a shibari rope bondage session? You name it, I’ve probably searched it!

Here’s an A to Z sample of some of the things I’ve looked up over the past few months – all in the name of research, I promise you! Well, except for the Jon Snow thing. And the Thomas Cromwell thing. And yeah, maybe the vontouring – I was just plain curious about that one!

Not Vanilla Spanking coverA – Arse or ass – which is correct?

B – Butt naked or buck naked?

C – Cock Ring – what does it feel like for the guy?

D – Dominant and submissive relationships

E – Erotic spanking

F – Foursome sex variables

G – Greek gods and sexuality

H – Hand or paddle for spanking?

I – Intense green eyes

J – Jon Snow – PLEASE DON’T click the spoiler unless you’re up to date with GoT!

spoiler

K – Kinbaku or shibari – what is the difference?

L – Lesbian sex

M – Merlin and Myrnin (this one thanks to Rachel Caine’s Morganville vampire series)

Not Vanilla (Bondage)N – Nipple clamps – best type for beginners

O – Olisbos

P – Pleasure and pain in sex

Q – Quotes about romance and passion

R – Rope bondage – types of rope

S – Sex club virtual tours

T – Thomas Cromwell (yes, I was watching Wolf Hall)

U – Urban dictionary

V – Vontouring (My question after looking this up… why?!)

W – What if two Doms fall in love?

X – X-rated alcohol recipes

Y – Yoga and sexuality techniques

Z – Zodiac signs and romance

So, there you have it, some of my recent book research questions. Please leave a comment – I’d love to hear about some of your more unusual, strange or funny internet searches!

HUNG UP by Roz Lee

I should have told Colton what he could do with his money, but I need it to keep the doors of my dance studio open. So, here I am, naked and bound, with a bull rope around my waist, and despite the intricate suspension system holding me up, I’m falling hard. Falling for the impossible man who threw me for a loop and lassoed my heart. ~ Beth

ALPHA SUBMISSIVE by Jennifer Lynne

What happens when a driven, alpha woman is forced by circumstance to participate in a shibari rope display? Bound and immobilized by the country’s leading Dominant rope master, Ava fights to keep control. If she does the unthinkable and allows herself to submit to Roane, will she lose the only part of herself that really matters—her heart—to the man who now holds her destiny in his practiced hands?

Excerpt from ALPHA SUBMISSIVE (18 years +)

My throat is tight, and a tiny moan escapes. Why am I doing this? What do I really know about him? What if he wraps me so tight I can’t breathe? What if… I don’t think I can… Oh, my God…

“You’re doing fine, Ava. Let it out.”

Let what out?

“Focus on the rope. What does it feel like against your skin?”

Okay. I can do this. I’m strong. The rope. Focus on the rope.

I expect it to be scratchy against my skin, but it isn’t. Instead, the rope glides over the contours of my body like the caressing fingers of a lover whose sole purpose is to provide pleasure for his partner. Roane is clearly a Master. I remind myself he’s had lots of practice, but it doesn’t stop the trail of goose bumps forming in the wake of the silken strands and though I fight to control it, a shudder wracks my body as the sensation wends its way once again to my traitorous clit.

“It feels…pleasurable.”

“Yes. Let it out, Ava.”

The only thing that wants out is my panic, and I refuse to give in. I shake my head violently but the rope is there again, together with the exciting brush of his fingertips as he weaves some kind of intricate pattern around my body. I love his fingers on my skin. They are warm, and firm, and the gentle touch mirrors the exciting feel of that cord slithering over my limbs and then pulling taut as he fastens it around me. I’m panting a bit and it’s starting to get painful. The rope. It’s so tight

I press my lips together, trying to contain my emotions, but the anxiety is ballooning as fast as my desire and the breathlessness increases.

“I’m not sure… I’m not sure…”

He pauses and in the silence it’s as if I can hear my own heartbeat pounding in my ears. Fast. Staccato. Out of control.

“Do you want to use your safe word?”

Like #BDSM romance? Pre-order NOT VANILLA (BONDAGE) #Kindle #Erotic

Not Vanilla (Bondage)Pre-order is now available for Not Vanilla (Bondage), a duo of erotic rope bondage stories by USA Today bestselling author Roz Lee and yours truly.

I loved writing my story for this collection. Alpha Submissive was my first foray into BDSM romance, and it certainly won’t be my last. The whole concept of a strong, independent woman learning to embrace the more submissive side of herself through the erotic art of shibari (rope bondage), embodies my belief that many of us harbor inner facets that we are not even aware of ourselves. I loved the idea that my sexy rope Master, Roane, might teach “alpha” heroine Ava, how to hand over control and live in the moment. Here’s the blurb for Alpha Submissive, and the ultra-erotic Hung Up by Roz Lee:

ALPHA SUBMISSIVE by Jennifer Lynne
What happens when a driven, alpha woman is forced by circumstance to participate in a shibari rope display? Bound and immobilized by the country’s leading Dominant rope master, Ava fights to keep control. If she does the unthinkable and allows herself to submit to Roane, will she lose the only part of herself that really matters—her heart—to the man who now holds her destiny in his practiced hands?

HUNG UP by Roz Lee
I should have told Colton what he could do with his money, but I need it to keep the doors of my dance studio open. So, here I am, naked and bound, with a bull rope around my waist, and despite the intricate suspension system holding me up, I’m falling hard. Falling for the impossible man who threw me for a loop and lassoed my heart. ~ Beth

These novelette-length stories contain erotic content including bondage sex scenes. Suitable for Adult readers only.

Here’s an Adults-only taste from Alpha Submissive to whet your appetite:

“You’re so wet,” he says, and I hear the echo of my own wondering thirst in his words. However unwanted it might be, I do desire Roane and I can tell that he returns the feeling. There’s no point denying it to myself any longer, nor to him. He can see it in my body’s response to his nearness, and if I’m reading desire in his avid gaze, then I’m sure he’s reading it ten-fold in mine.

I’ve wanted this man ever since I first laid eyes on him, and there’s no way he wouldn’t be aware of it. Not when my glistening pussy is laid out directly in front of his eyes.

Does Nicole feel like this when Roane touches her? He says they don’t have that kind of relationship, but how could they not, when this rope, like an extension of his hands, both contains and incites so much intense emotion? A flare of jealousy ignites deep in my belly, only adding to the mix of confusion and heady excitement.

“Yes,” I start to answer. “This is…oh!” I gasp as one of his fingers slips inside my channel. I can’t remember what I was about to say. I can only raise my mound upward, lifting my ass off the bench seat and using the ropes to help propel the lift. I push hard into his finger fuck, clenching my muscles around the digit and trying to force him deeper.

“Do you want to use your safe word, Ava?” He adds a second finger, thrusting as deep as he can, cupping my butt with his other hand and encouraging my back-and-forth rhythm. “You can. If you wish.”

“No. I don’t wish.” I’m panting, speaking between clenched teeth, and that’s when I hear the pattern of his breathing change and become almost as ragged as my own. I can’t contain myself. A deep groan vibrates up and out of my throat. “Roane. I hate this. But I want you, so much.”

I’m not sure what I’m asking, but as fast as he entered me, his fingers are gone from my body. I want him back inside me. I want him to release me from these shackles. I want to be fucked by him until I reach that delicious place of oblivion that a good orgasm brings. I want his hard cock rammed inside my body, buried right to the base so our bodies connect as one.

Oh God, I’m an emotional mess.
