Oceanic Snark, Part 2

Our m/f/m menage, Longfellow’s Lovers, released Wednesday HERE at Ellora’s Cave. The Longfellow in question is Ariana, an Historian taking an Australian beach vacation before moving on to her next assignment in Asia. The Lovers are Ky and Jaxon, mermen and brothers who bicker like, well like brothers.

In this week’s snark, Ky and Jax have just claimed Ariana, their mate, and are behaving like…men…in the aftermath. No, they didn’t roll over and go to sleep. Instead Jax went looking for food while Ky took care of their exhausted lover. Of course, “taking care” quickly becomes “petting and fondling,” and as Ky’s nest-brother, Jax has a telepathic window to what’s happening in the bathroom while he’s rounding up a snack.

Ky knew she needed rest, and after they ate he would let her have all the sleep she needed. But at the moment he wanted to watch the orgasm cross her face. He loved watching the flush rise to her cheeks, the way she licked her lips. Her sighs alone drove him mad with the need to bury himself inside her.

The Great Power had chosen their mate well. She was a perfect match for him and Jax, and while it had taken him off guard that she’d been a human, Ky couldn’t have been more pleased.

Ky, dammit, I wanted food. Now I’m standing in the kitchen with a boner that could pound nails!

Ky didn’t try to suppress the smile.

Ari blinked at him and crinkled her nose in an adorable expression of confusion.

“What’s so funny?”

Ky leaned down and kissed those precious wrinkles.  When her expression relaxed, he moved to her lips and kissed her deeply, until she gasped into his mouth.

He pulled away with a smile of satisfaction.  “It’s just my idiot brother, love. Jax is complaining that he now has a hard on.”

You can find Longfellow’s Lovers HERE, at Ellora’s Cave; and you can find more snark HERE, on Marie Sexton’s blog.



Run, don’t walk, to Ellora’s Cave and check out our new release, Longfellow’s Lovers! This m/f/m menage features mermen, a big, beautiful heroine, and as much sex on the beach as you could possibly hope for! It also features a cover that I think of as very “retro” – our gorgeous merman with long, flowing blond hair in a “From Here to Eternity” type embrace, while his tall, dark, HOT and brooding nest-brother looks on from his place in the surf. Yum!

Here’s the blurb:

Ariana Longfellow, an Historian whose job it is to record the narratives of the various supernatural species that inhabit the world, retreats to a sunny Australian beach for a summer holiday. But she’s not alone. There on the beach is the most amazingly gorgeous male she’s ever seen. And he has a tail! When another dark ocean god joins him in a cloud of ocean scent and spice, what can Ari do but surrender all she is?

Ky and Jaxon are warriors among the ocean dwellers, mermen dedicated to protecting their species from detection by humanity. When an injured Jaxon washes up on Ari’s beach, he and Ky are stunned when she triggers the mating scent, the signal to all merkin that they’ve found their true mate. The first snag—she’s a human. To add insult to injury—she’s a Longfellow. And all three of them must choose either duty to their own, or the love and passion shared between mates.

HERE’s the excerpt.

Here’s one of my inspirational pictures:



So, Longfellow Seduced is out at Ellora’s Cave (get it HERE) and Cat gave it the most awesome customer review! It totally made Sierra’s Thursday, and it started my Friday on a totally high note! Thanks, Cat! (Exit VJ, the validation whore, lol).

Now back to preparations for the EDJ, a little happier than I was fifteen minutes ago! And, here’s more Angelo, just to keep the happy going!

Okay, you can’t see his face in this one, but this is last year’s RomantiCon, where he was more or less DJ for the par-tay part of the evenings. This pic, besides showing some fucking amazing muscles, reminds me a little of Magnus – love a guy who knows how to play the crowd!

THIS one’s from RomantiCon 2010. Angelo is signing the cover flat of Joey W. Hill’s Branded Sanctuary – which features him looking pretty damned glorious (fitting, as it’s a pretty damned glorious book – READ IT if you haven’t – it’s het/BDSM/hurt-comfort/friends-to-lovers/amazing). And that’s the equally glorious Joey W. Hill with him. This is another Magnus picture – autograph sighing and all.

And if I’m gonna pimp Joey, I’ll mention Rough Canvas. It was my first BDSM, my first m/m, and it literally changed my life. Seriously – one of the best books I’ve ever read, *always* on my Nook, and one of about three I go to whenever I’m jammed up. I wasn’t at all surprised to find Joey a wonderful person, not after reading Rough Canvas.

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Longfellow Inspiration

As we prepare for the LONG awaited re-release of Longfellow Seduced (May 9th from Ellora’s Cave), I thought I’d share the gorgeous original picture that first inspired our chauvinistic oaf, Magnus Crowe. Kudos to Sierra for finding it!

Butt cleavage… sigh…
