Excerpt:

Monica pulled out her smartphone and showed Maré pictures of her girlfriend. He was speechless! Sabrina was a pale-skinned beauty. She had an angelic face and luscious pouty lips. Her honey-blonde hair was long, ample, and combed in soft curls. Her body was perfect in proportions! She had an ass like Jessica Biel; her tits were large and firm.

“Wow, your girlfriend looks exactly like Scarlett Johansson.” Maré responded. “The only difference is Sabrina has a better body and longer hair.”

Monica chuckled, “She does, and we get hit on by men and women all the time. It is crazy every time we are in the mall, the airports, and the clubs! I know there are pictures of us all over social media.”

“Well, ya’ll movie stars!” Maré teased her.

About the Author:

John Everson is the Bram Stoker Award-winning author of eight novels of erotic horror and the macabre, including his latest, the Fountain of Youth thriller THE FAMILY TREE, as well as the Bram Stoker Award-nominated tour de force NIGHTWHERE, the Bram Stoker Award-winner COVENANT, its sequel SACRIFICE and the standalone novels THE 13TH, SIREN, THE PUMPKIN MAN, VIOLET EYES. He also is the author of four collections of short horror fiction, including his latest, SACRIFICING VIRGINS.

John shares a deep purple den in Naperville, Illinois with a cockatoo and cockatiel, a disparate collection of fake skulls, twisted skeletal fairies, Alan Clark illustrations and a large stuffed Eeyore. There’s also a mounted Chinese fowling spider named Stoker, an ever-growing shelf of custom mix CDs and an acoustic guitar that he can’t really play but that his son likes to hear him beat on anyway. Sometimes his wife is surprised to find him shuffling through more public areas of the house, but it’s usually only to brew another cup of coffee. In order to avoid the onerous task of writing, he occasionally records pop-rock songs in a hidden home studio, experiments with the insatiable culinary joys of the jalapeno, designs book covers for a variety of small presses, loses hours in expanding an array of gardens and chases frequent excursions into the bizarre visual headspace of ’70s euro-horror DVDs with a shot of Makers Mark and a tall glass of Newcastle.

one night with hemsworth

One Night Series Book 1

★ ★ ★ ★ ★  “A wonderful, completely realistic love story, this novel took me on a roller coaster of emotions! Starting with a sizzling entry, I was left slack-jawed, then chuckling, then in angst, then sighing in pleasure by the end.” –The Recipe Fairy

Cole Turner’s ex-wife is getting remarried. No amount of alcohol can drown that out, but taking home the hot brunette at the bar is a good enough distraction. That’s all Paige is meant to be—a distraction.

Paige Minor is too busy studying for her law degree and getting over a bad breakup to care about finding another boyfriend. All she wants is one night of careless fun with a complete stranger. Cole seems like the perfect candidate.

When Cole goes to pick up his son from his ex’s perfect house, with her perfect fiancé, and perfect new life, the last person he expects to see is Paige. She definitely shouldn’t be the one opening the door. As he stares at the person who was in his bed less than twenty-four hours earlier, a single thought occurs to him: I just slept with my ex’s new stepdaughter.

Excerpt:

Finally getting to the door, I had no idea who I was expecting, but Hemsworth was definitely not on the list.
My heart pounded in my chest, and my stomach did a flip.
“What are you … how do you know where I live?” My first thought was Holy crap, I have a stalker! But there was confusion on his face too, so I had no idea what was going on.
It wasn’t until Cody came running out, throwing his arms around him and screaming “Dad!” that I realised what actually happened last night.
I slept with my new stepbrother’s dad. I had sex with my stepmother’s ex-husband.
I wanted to shrink back into myself. It didn’t really happen, did it? We have to be in some kind of alternate universe. Like Asgard. That would explain why Thor is here, at my fucking house, looking like the god he is in black jeans and a light denim button-down shirt.
Cole hugged Cody tight but didn’t take his eyes off me. “Hey, buddy. How ya going?”
“Good. Wanna see my new room? We just moved all my stuff in.”
“Of course,” he said, finally releasing me from his stare and looking down at his son. “I’ll be along in a minute. I need to … umm … I forgot something out in my car. I’ll be back in a sec, okay?”
“Okay.” Cody ran back inside, leaving us both standing in the entryway completely silent and completely stunned.
“This isn’t happening,” he mumbled. He started pacing the porch, running his hand through his hair.  “Please tell me you’re a babysitter, or a housekeeper, or … fuck, I don’t know. Please tell me you’re not who I think you are.”
My mouth opened, but nothing came out.
“Reece said Paul had a daughter. I just assumed a pimply pre-teen with pigtails. Not … oh, this is not good.” He looked like he was about to hyperventilate. “Did you know who I was?” His eyes snapped to mine.
“What?” I choked on the word.
“Did you know who I was?” he said, slower this time and through gritted teeth. He stepped closer so he was within an inch of me.
His aftershave smelled incredible, and being that close to him made me want to reach out and touch him, kiss the mouth that explored all of me last night. I forced myself to find my voice. “I swear, I didn’t. I wouldn’t have …”
We were interrupted by Reece coming to the door. “Everything okay out here? Cody said you forgot something.”
Cole took a step back and tried to wipe the terrified look off his face. “Yeah, yeah, everything’s fine. Thought I left my phone in the car.” He pulled it out of his jeans. “But it was in my pocket.”
Reece looked at him like he’d lost his mind, but stepped aside and invited him in. “Dinner’s almost ready.”

Interview:

Thanks for doing an interview! Could you tell our readers a little bit about your writing journey?
I actually started writing young adult books under my real name and had four of them published before I ventured over to the romance genre. My characters in book number five kept trying to add steam and would use colourful language that really doesn’t belong in young adult. I started a side project to release all of their sexual frustrations and came up with the One Night series.

How many books do you currently have published?
The One Night series has two books currently published, with the remaining three of the series planned for release in 2017.

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why?
One Night with Hemsworth was so easy to write. Cole and Paige’s story was desperate to get out, so the first draft only took me two months to complete. I loved that it was easy, unlike One Night with Calvin where I kept hitting blocks. I blame the main character, Hunter, for that though. He was so perfect in Cole’s book, I was worried he wouldn’t live up to the hype in his own book.

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?
I’ve gone a bit backwards and I’m actually working on book four of the One Night series before even starting book three. But I’m hoping to release them both close together sometime next year.

What do you enjoy most about writing?
The escape from real life. The fact I can fantasize about my boyfriends and my husband can’t get angry at me because they’re fictional.

Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?
I have terrible ADHD, and generally when I get stuck on one book, I’ll start another. Also writing young adult means I flip-flop between two or three (okay five) projects at once. I go wherever my mind takes me, which is why my drafts take anywhere from two months to a year to write.

Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?
I haven’t with my romances, but this happens in nearly every single young adult book I write. Teens are a pain in the ass to work with. Even fictional ones.

Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why?
I LOVE Hunter in One Night with Hemsworth, and then he gets his own book in One Night with Calvin. He is the epitome of what I want in a man. A little less manwhorish would be nice, but apart from that, I think he’s perfect.
My least favourite is Reece. She is the ex-wife of Cole in One Night with Hemsworth and she does some pretty nasty manipulating. However, her book is book three of this series, and while I haven’t started writing it just yet, I do have high hopes she can turn her life, and her attitude, around. I’m hoping she finds redemption.

So far, what has been your favorite scene to write?
Any scene with Hunter. He’s definitely a show stealer.

If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why?
Each One Night books are standalones, but I’d recommend starting with Hemsworth because I may have a slight case of OCD and I have to read a series in order, even if they are all standalones that are interconnected.

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?
Anything YA or steamy romance. My favourite author is Elle Kennedy. I really only have one prerequisite for the books I read, and that is they need to make me laugh. I’ll read a serious book (I loved The Fault in Our Stars by John Green) but it needs to have splashes of humour throughout so my brain isn’t fried by the end of it.

Is there a book that you have read that you feel has made a big impact on your life? Why?
The Hunger Games is the book that made me fall in love with reading and writing again. I can pretty much thank it for my writing career. I basically hadn’t read anything since high school, and once I started again at twenty-eight, I couldn’t stop. Which in turn, made me want to write, and then a few years later, I’m suddenly a published author, making a living out of doing the thing I’d always loved but was too distracted with a “real job” to give it my full attention.

Excerpt:

That’s when she saw him. On the wooden staircase that wound up to Rebecca’s converted attic was a man that shifted everything into slow motion. A man that, for a second at least, she would follow anywhere. Jeans and a t-shirt exposed his tan muscular build. While the back of his shaved head revealed no character, his climb was hypnotic. A beautiful tattoo engulfing his right arm looked like branches from an old tree. It was rooted around a box he carried with ease. She stopped breathing, acutely aware of her pounding chest. There was no rational explanation for her reaction to him, and she hadn’t noticed she was still holding on to the back gate when it slipped. The slam jolted her out of the daze and he turned.
Monica inspected her purse, and fumbled with her keys. He paused near the top of the stairs waiting for her attention, but she walked towards the back door, feeling his heavy stare. Before she could turn the doorknob the allure of his silence coaxed her head up. His eyes were crystal blue and pensive under a low-slung, heavy brow. He had large full lips, a strong jaw and a rugged nose that looked like it had been broken a few times. Her stomach twisted as he smiled. He was gorgeous. Flushed, she returned the smile and barreled through the door.
“Who’s the guy next door?” she hollered to her husband, Alex.

Interview:

When did you start to have a love for books?
I was dyslexic, so initially I didn’t like to read because it made me feel slow. Then my dad signed me up for a Weekly Reader program that sent a new book every week. When I got The Green Slime choose your own adventure book, I was hooked. I had to work hard to improve my reading comprehension, but it was so much fun.

What was your favorite book as a child? As a teenager?
As a kid it was The Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warner and the Romana series by Beverly Cleary. The world run by children was my fantasy. As a teenager I loved classic English literature, but my love for film was already overpowering my attention span. Reading was too much work when there was a film version. I’d watch Pride and Prejudice or any other book turned into a movie over and over. I endured, “But the book is so much better,” and, “There’s so much left out of the movie,” with a full acceptance that they were right.

What was that turning point that changed you from a reader to a writer?
When I was nine my parents let me fly to Utah (from Oklahoma) to see my friend who had moved away. Something about that trip changed my view of the whole world and made me want to write. Maybe it was flying by myself to a place with mountains, which I’d never seen, or just seeing a life so different than what I’d known. When I returned, I sat down with a new composition notebook and filled it with a story about a group of young boys during a sleep over who encounter an escaped prisoner. I worked on it for a week. I erased and rewrote so much, but I was in love with writing. I wasn’t focused on “being” a writer at all. I just loved to put the world in my imagination on paper.

Inspiration can often be found in the oddest people, places, and even situations. In the past, what has inspired you?
In film school, my screenwriting instructor had us sit in a hotel lobby for twenty minutes to come up with a cast of characters based on people we observed, then weave them into a short treatment. It was something I’d already been doing since that trip when I was nine. I find people watching and traveling to be a huge trigger of inspiration for all kinds of stories. Even if you’re just going to a coffee shop or the mall, you can see inspiration all over.

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why?
Chasing Swells has been my baby because I love surfing so much and these characters came to my mind so long ago. I’ve loved “traveling” with Dean and his crew to Fiji, Bali, and Tahiti. It’s been like a little vacation I can step in and out of.

What about your favorite character or characters? Which characters from your books do you think readers will really feel a connection to?
It’s so hard to pick one character when you spend so much time with them. I think the one I’ve had the deepest love for would be Quinn Matthews from my August Fog series. I think readers relate to the females I write, especially Monica Waters from the August Fog series. She’s a bit lost in life, but doesn’t realize she’s on the wrong path until she’s faced with a huge moral dilemma. I like characters with flaws, big ones, that you can still root for as they overcome life’s hurdles.

What can readers expect from you next?
I’m moving into a couple of novels that are in the mystery/psychological thriller genre. I’m excited to add some suspense to my writing.

Nobody knows your books better than you! In your opinion, readers of what genres will enjoy your books the most?
The August Fog series is for erotica fans, but Chasing Swells appeals to a broad range of readers. Even though it’s a contemporary romance, I’ve found that men who would never open the genre see it as a sports fiction and enjoy it too. I want to be able to have a range of genres that appeal to my own love of variety. A little, something for everyone, or every mood.

Now that we’ve talked about the books, let’s get to know you as the author! What are your favorite books now as an adult? Television shows? Movies?
I read a big variety: true crime, mystery, thrillers, romance. I watch more films than television, probably due to the limited time I have. It’s ironic that those who make television often don’t watch much of it. As an Art Director and Production Designer in the industry, my hours are long. I do, of course, watch How To Get Away With Murder, and have since before I joined the show last season. My husband and I stick to Netflix or cable series that we can watch at will or binge on a holiday weekend. I love The Fall, The Americans, Peaky Blinders, Masters of Sex, Grace and Frankie, VEEP, and because I love politics we live by The Daily Show and This Week With John Oliver. As for movies, I love action, comedy and dramas.

If you could meet one author–from any time era–who would it be and what would you talk about?
That’s such an impossible question. I’d love to meet Jane Austen or E.M. Forester, or how about both, and talk about social hypocrisy and relationships beyond restrictions. The human connection both authors put into their stories was what kept me yearning for more in my life, and kept me forever addicted to their work.

How would you describe your life in ten words or under?
My life is muddy paws, funny kisses, and layered whiskey.

What is your favorite place to visit?
Maui (but any Polynesian destination is at the top of my list)

What words do you live by?
If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.

The Ruttingdon Series Book 3

Release Date: 8/1/16

Publisher: Blushing Books

Never trust the wrong man, especially with your heart. But how does one know ahead of time he is the wrong man?

In the case of innocent vicar’s daughter Faith Halstead, governess to a middle class family with a marriageable son, one only finds out he is a cad after it is too late. Now she is alone in the world, a fallen woman, facing a bleak and uncertain future.

While leaving London in disgrace, a chance encounter on the train lands Faith in front of the darkly dominant Duke of Buckingham. He is in search of a woman to serve as his slave at an upcoming Ruttingdon Club house party, and the shy, modest young woman has unaccountably captured his attention.

Desperate for any excuse not to return home to her harshly judgmental father, Faith rashly promises to serve as the duke’s absolute slave for a week, alone with him at the secluded Ruttingdon Hall.

Will his dark and brutal desires and the oftentimes sweet pain he inflicts upon her ripe body drive her away, or will the awakening desires in her heart seduce her into staying longer with him – perhaps forever?

Publisher’s Note: This book contains adult, consensual spanking and discipline, and graphic descriptions of sexual activity, including breath play. If such material bothers or offends you, please do not read it.

Excerpt:

Faith swallowed hard. “I may be a fallen woman, your grace,” she said quietly, “but I am not a woman who will suit your needs either.”

“You don’t know what they are yet,” the duke pointed out. “And, may I say, that you are not exactly in a position to be choosy.”

Faith’s head snapped up and she glared at the duke.

He smiled at her. “There you are,” he said softly. “I wondered if there was a bit of spirit left in you.”

He pushed the piece of paper on the desk towards Faith.

“There,” he said. “There is a document stating in plain terms what I would expect of my mistress, and what her remuneration would be.”

Faith did not look at the document.

“Why are you offering me this?” she asked, confused. “You have a woman waiting for your carriage at the railway station. She is more worldly than I, and fully aware of what you need. I am not like her, your grace.”

“Read the document,” the duke ordered.

Her hands shaking slightly, Faith picked up the sheet of paper and started to read. She felt her cheeks begin to flush again after the first few sentences, but a mixture of horror and fascination kept her reading the scandalous document.

It was a contract, of sorts, she realised, a little like the one that she had signed on becoming the governess to the Bateman children. It spelled out, in simple terms and plain language, what the mistress of the Duke of Buckingham would have to endure, and how she would be remunerated. Faith’s eyes nearly popped out of her head when she saw the amount, neatly penned in at the bottom of the page.

Ten thousand pounds.

Ten thousand pounds!

It was an unbelievable amount of money, an absolute fortune, especially to a poorly paid governess such as Faith. She had thought that she was lucky to be paid twenty-five pounds a year by the Batemans; one month’s work for the Duke of Buckingham and she would earn what she never would earn working as a governess!

She took a deep breath. Now she understood why fallen women turned to sin. It seemed to pay a lot better than virtue did!


About the Author:

I’m Louise Taylor, and I love reading and writing historical romance novels! I’ve now written seven full length erotic historical romances, and all my novels are published by the lovely people at Blushing Books.

All my books have elements of power exchange, spanking and BDSM but none of my heroines are weak-willed or easily dominated – they make their men work for their love!

I live on the beautiful Welsh coast, and I love walking the cliff tops and visiting some of our wonderful historical ruins. I get my best ideas when I’m in the great outdoors and you can usually find me chasing after the piece of paper I’ve just scribbled my notes on!

I live in a late Victorian house with wonderfully high ceilings and no central heating – thank goodness for my fabulous fireplace! I’m owned by Alfred The Great, an enormous tom cat with very decided ideas about who gets to sit on the right side of the sofa and how long I am allowed to stay in bed in the morning.

Interview:

How many books do you currently have published?

Having Faith is my sixth full length novel, but my seventh, Keeping Faith, will be released on September 3rd 2016! They are Volumes One and Two of the third book in my The Ruttingdon Club series. The story got so big I had to split it over two books!

What has been your favorite book to write so far? Why?

I very much enjoyed Spanking The Heiress – lots of buried treasure and secret passages in ruined castles! The Incorrigible Miss Spencer, the first in the Ruttingdon Series, was a departure away from light spanking and towards more intense BDSM.

Are you currently working on a book? Will this be your next release?

I’m always working on a book! I’m writing the fourth in The Ruttingdon Club series about a very strict doctor and his un-cooperative patient, and I also have the fourth book in my Victorian Vices series on the go to!

Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?

Oh, every writer gets blocked. I tend to wander off and clean the bathroom or kitchen for a while. Somehow scrubbing things gets the creative juices flowing for me!

Have you ever had one of your characters to take a twist you weren’t expecting and surprise you?

Oh yes! After writing The Incorrigible Miss Spencer and Annabelle’s Awakening  about the irrepressible Annabelle Spencer, I was looking forward to writing a third book about a different character. Annabelle did make her way into Keeping Faith, however – it was impossible to leave her out!

Which of your characters is your personal favorite? Least favorite? Why?

Annabelle Spencer, Duchess of Rothmuir. She’s full of energy and curiosity and not scared of anything! She’s intellectually curious, too. She takes every opportunity to widen her horizons and had a kind and caring nature.

My least favorite characters are my villains. I try and and make them as evil as possible, so I end up really hating them. Sir Alec Salcombe from Spanking The Heiress used to be my worst, but I’ve surpassed him with Sir Leslie Baynton in Keeping Faith. Trust me, you’ll hate him.

So far, what has been your favorite scene to write?

The scene where Sir Leslie Baynton gets his just desserts. That was satisfying!

What lessons have you learned since becoming a writer? Do you have any tips for new writers?

You have to keep plugging away at it. Writing even a small amount as often as you can means that you have something to work with, edit, revise and improve. Carve out as much time as you can for your writing.

If you were to recommend your books to a stranger, which book would you advise them to start with? Why?

It depends; if you like historical romance with a little light spanking, I’d say try Spanking Miss Sophia. Its my second book, but it’s much better than my first. If you prefer your romances a lot steamier, try The Incorrigible Miss Spencer  which introduced the secret and exclusive Ruttingdon Club for aristocrats who enjoy doling out pain along with pleasure.

Do you have any extras you’d like to share, like a teaser about an upcoming new release,  a summary of a deleted scene, or a teaser about a surprising plot twist or character?

There’s a free chapter of Keeping Faith at the end of Having Faith – just in case you can’t cope with the month wait between releases!

Now it’s time to get to know you! What are some of your favorite books to read?

I love Julia Quinn’s regency romances, especially her Bridgerton Series. I’ll read anything Anne Gracie writes either! I love Golden Age murder mysteries – think Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers – as well as epic fantasy by authors like George R R Martin and Melanie Rawn.

What about television shows? Movies?

I’ve really enjoyed the latest Star Trek movie (I’m a huge Trekkie!) and the new Ghostbusters film, but I have so many favourite movies that there’s just no room to list all of them! I tend to prefer comedies over drama – life’s too short not to laugh! I love crime procedurals on TV, but summer is a bit of a bad time for good TV shows. I have enjoyed Stranger Things on Netflix recently. That was excellent!

Is there a book that you have read that you feel has made a big impact on your life? Why?

Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. That book spoke to me when I was a teenager. As well as being hilariously funny, I really empathised with one of the main characters. It’s my go-to book when I want to cheer myself up.

Do you have anything else you’d like to share with readers?

I love talking to my readers! Please get in touch!
