(Who just gives me the look.)
I’m unapologetically going to go on about the book I’ve got out today. I can’t help it, I’m all over excited.
Fairground Attraction was once upon a time a much shorter (and IMO good but not so good, however, I would say that wouldn’t I?) story called The Price to Pay. I loved it though, as you do and was so very sorry when the publishing house it was with closed its doors.
After I got my rights back and read the story over, I thought my characters, Vairi and Raig, deserved a better book to tell their story in. After all I think my writing has changed over the years, and I hope for the better. So I revised, rewrote and revised again. Nagged Doris, who nagged me back. Then subbed. Bit my nails until yep I refreshed the in box and there was ‘the email’. Totally Bound said yes.
So here we are.
I loved Raig and Vairi, back then, and now, and I’m hoping like crazy you will as well.
It was a fun book to write, and yes I do have a favorite or three scene.
(Want to ride the carousel anyone)
Before, on December 13th it goes live on all the other sites (where it is up for preorder) and a…n…d… on December 13th it’s out in print as well.
As that is the day after my birthday I’m a bit chuffed there. A nice birthday present.
That definitely deserves a chair swivel jiggle.
But for now, this is the drum roll release day moment.
I just love that picture… They are just as I envisioned Raig and Vairi, and ohhh the carousel is even in it.
Yes, sorry that carousel does loom large in my mind chuckle
a wee tease…
He eased his fingers inside her as he spoke and danced and scissored them together, moving them in then out to caress and tease her clit. “It would have used up precious time, time when I could be slipping my fingers inside you like I am now. So much more fulfilling, I’m thinking.” With his other hand, he made short work of the rest of the buttons, smiled his appreciation as the two sides of the robe fell apart, revealing her body, tanned and toned with tantalizing white strips across her breasts and pussy, and sighed in reverence at what was revealed. “No nude sunbathing then, Vairi My Queen? As a possessive man, I like the thought that these precious places are not for everyone to view, just me.”
Her eyes, which had been half closed, seeming with passion, sprang open. “No one possesses me, Padraig O’Shea. No one. I am my own person, not anyone else’s. Understand?” Those deep blue eyes flashed at him, daring him to disagree.
He didn’t. Oh my. Feisty, as well as arousing. Be still my heart.
“I wasn’t meaning it like it sounded, Vairi,” Raig said earnestly. “I would never dream of possessing you in that way. I just like the idea that you don’t bare your all for all to see. I don’t like the idea of other men seeing those glorious breasts and that secret, sensitive clit. I’m man enough to enjoy the idea that they are for my eyes only. That is my idea of possessive. I’m hoping you’ll feel the same about me. I don’t bare my all for others to see. Although,” he said humorously, “I confess, I do go topless.”
He saw her lips twitch. “You sod. There I was, getting my knickers in a twist—well, I would have been if I’d any on—and you disarm me, poof, just like that. How the hell do you do it?” She shook her head. “However, I can see you are daring enough to go topless, you shameless creature. No tan lines.” She pulled his sweatshirt up as she spoke. Buttons popped as she swiftly sent his shirt the same way. Raig helped by removing his fingers from inside her as the top came over his head, only to replace them immediately after and caress her clit as he did so.
“Does that feel good, my Vairi?” Needy or what?
“Oh God, yes. Very good. Shit, Raig, you’ve got magic fingers.” Vairi panted the words. “But I want you in me.” She gasped. “Feel your cock in me.” Her hands stole to the hard ridge pushing against his jeans, and circled it over the denim. “I want to see.”
“Patience. We’ve all the time we want, there’s no rush.” He soothed with his voice as he excited her with his hands.
Vairi screamed. Raig swiftly covered her mouth with his, drank in her pleasure and held her tightly as she shook and came in an explosive climax.
“Hell,” she gasped. “In me. Now. Please, now...aah.” Raig flexed his fingers and felt her shudder again as her hands moved to his fly and she clumsily began to open the zip. He drew in his breath sharply. She seemed to understand why.
“Don’t worry,” she said reassuringly. “I won’t catch you in it. I’ve a feeling your cock is much too important to both of us to do it any damage.”
Her breath hitched as her fingers encountered his silky hardness. Raig was somewhat relieved she made sure they were a barrier between his flesh and the metal teeth of the zipper.
“I need to know what it’s like to have you deep inside me, Rake, touching my soul.” She laughed shakily. “Hell, fanciful or what? But oh-so-true.” The concentration on her face as she struggled with his jeans excluded any other emotion.
Raig was moved by her statement. He couldn’t find the words to describe his emotions so he kissed her breast as he kept up the pressure inside her and alternated between soothing and caressing. He could tell by the way she moved awkwardly to pull his jeans off he wasn’t making it easy for her, but he thought by her choppy breathing and the indrawn breath as he touched her clit it was worth it. Especially when she started to play him at his own game and began to run her fingers up and down his already throbbing dick. Her feather-light touches equally excited and inflamed him and he was damn sure his cock was slick with pre-cum. He moaned—in pleasure or pain, he wasn’t sure. Whichever, he knew it was the prelude to the explosive emotions of making love.
“Oh, love...” Her voice petered out. “Lovely.” She spoke so quietly he strained to hear. He could have sworn she was going to use the ‘L’ word before she amended it. One day, he vowed to himself, she would say it. Out loud, to him, about him.
So there you are…or rather they are snigger
Did you kmow? I have a book out? Ah, yes I did mention it a couple of times. So… if you are interested, I have a book out today, or if you’re playing catch up, it’s out on early download. That means head over to Totally bound and press the buttons…
I’ve just looked at my gorgeous grandson’s face.
