Here’s my week’s offering for My Sexy Saturday–another sexy moment.

Briak shifted behind her and she felt his warm breath on her neck. She gulped and shut the basket. Turning to seek out water, she landed against Briak’s broad chest.

Ianthe blinked up at him, surprised, startled, and pleased all at once. “Hi.”

“Hi,” he said.

“I need to get the water if I’m going to finish this coffee.”

“How do we keep ending up like this?” he said in a soft voice. “Last night you needed egg salad and I was in your way.”

“Yes you were.” Like last night, she didn’t want to do anything about it. Damn her, but she didn’t mind being in Briak’s way.

“You’re always doing stuff for other people.” He nudged a lock of hair out of her eyes. “Do you ever do anything for yourself?”

“Well, there was this one time, but that was before the whole Snow White family debacle.”

Oops! I think Ianthe’s in trouble. That’s the trouble with cute guys, they tend to make your brain run slower on the important things, don’t they? ;)

 

 Changeling's Crown; fairy godmother; paranormal romanceChangeling’s Crown:
genre: upper YA/New Adult Paranormal sweet Romance

Blurb:

When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move. Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

Changeling’s Crown is available at Amazon, Amazon–other worldwide venues, Barnes and Noble, Itunes, Smashwords, and in paperback from Createspace.

Party time (facebook style)

facebookHey all, I’m participating in a Facebook party with paranormal romance author Beth Barany (a really cool lady who–just like me–likes taking pictures of flowers, and of course, writing). We’re having a party for the launch of her new book, A Labyrinth of Love and Roses today (Sept, 19) starting at 4PM PST. There’ll be lots of giveaways, I hear. Don’t miss it!

You can find it on Facebook here. Do come join us!

(Confidentially, I’m totally nervous about it! I hope it goes well!)

A Sexy Summer Fling ~ @MySexy Saturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7
Herein Ianthe and Briak are …still figuring out where they’re going to go with their attraction. As summer advances, so do their flirtations.
 

CHANGELINGS CROWN by Juli D. Revezzo; faery, fantasy, New Adult

[Briak] leaned in; [Ianthe] wavered a moment, lips parted. Would she accept another kiss?

Boots from another ranch hand clicked further down the stables.

Ianthe paused, blinked, and stepped back. “I’m sorry, I can’t,” she said. “You’re right, I’ve been away too long as it is.”

“Oh, now, a few minutes more won’t hurt.”

“No,” she insisted, “I have to … I have to go.” She hitched her purse up her arm. “I still owe you that lunch, though.”

“Yes you do.” He looked to the line of horse stalls. “But…”

“You have work too,” she said…

Now it was his turn to damn his schedule. “We’ll figure it out,” he said.

[Ianthe] smiled. “Count on it,” she said, and fled.

Is this the beginning of their summer fling–or even more? You’ll have to read to find out! Here’s the synopsis:

What happens after The End? ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MSS54

 

I’ve never participated in one of these particular bloghops before, but this question (from last week) intrigued me. You, my dear readers, haven’t seen me personally on my blog lately because, you know? I’ve been trying to answer this very thing. You’ve seen my complete body of work, no doubt. Most of these books have somehow turned into series. So for what happens after the end? Let’s see….When I got to the end of Drawing Down the Shades, I had in mind exactly where the Antique Magic series was going next…but. Caitlin threw another storyline at me and insisted that one come first. I’ve been bashing my head against a wall trying to write both of the books, and stuck trying to figure it where the first one goes, ever since. (I hate to use the word Writer’s Block here, but let’s just say I’m ready to throw a certain little witch on the bonfire soon, if she doesn’t tell me how her darned story goes! *laughs*)

House of Cards. I’d always planned to continue writing something more about this family but it took me a while to get the next member’s jaws unstuck. In the course of working all that out, you’ll never believe what happened. *g* (Okay, maybe you will–at least the writers will) The short story has spawned a whole new novel-length (yes, novel-length) manuscript. I don’t want to jinx it by talking about it too much yet, because this manuscript has been uber-tempramental, but it might be going to my beta readers soon. (*knock on wood*) Does it fit into the sexy category? A little…at least, I think so. More than the first as the heroine is in love. :) (No, I’m not kidding) You’ll see why sometime in the next oh, say three or four months, I hope. I daresay it’s closer to release than any other. (Maybe *zips lip*)

Passion’s Sacred Dance currently has a work-in-progress (or two) kicking around my computer–and my faery godparents (from Changeling’s Crown) are toying with me, hinting, hinting. We’ll see what, if anything, happens there. So, busy. Writers, how are your manuscripts going?

Our Sexy Starry Night ~ @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #Saturday7

 This is, technically, my first attempt at My Sexy Saturday. Let’s see how this goes.

This is from my fantasy romance Changeling’s Crown.

Ianthe and Briak’s first kiss and first trip into the Dark Grove….

Changeling's Crown by Juli D. Revezzo, Fantasy, Romance, New AdultYou must see what I am. Don’t you see it? To illustrate, she strengthened her magic. Faery dust shimmered pink on the air. He must see it. [Ianthe] spread her arms.

Darkness fell. A crowd’s murmur and cheers swamped the restaurant buzz. She gasped and spun.

Ianthe found herself standing on a high balcony overlooking a sea of people. In the distance, the moon hung, bleeding red light across a dark sky. Sparks flew from the torches the people held, their light illuminating twisted, pocked faces.

She gasped. By Thumbelina, what had she done?

She hadn’t taken Briak into the dark side of the groves, had she?

She blinked and rubbed her eyes, disbelieving what she saw. One minute, she’d been happily seeing she could still do her job, and now, here she stood overlooking a crowd of freakish goblins. How had this happened?

Shivering with the possibility and what it might mean, she looked to her left, taking Briak in. “What—” She gulped. Well, you’re here. Now what? She cleared her throat. “What do you think now?” Take us back, take us back! she ordered herself.

They stayed as if riveted on the balcony.

Briak reached out and swept a lock of hair over her shoulder. “I think you’re beautiful.” He pulled her into his arms and kissed her. “Just like a faery queen. Any man would be lucky to have you.”
