Editor's Choice!

Exciting news! Book 1 in the Seven for Seduction series, The New Guy, has won an Editor's Choice award from eXtasy Books. Here's what my editor had to say:

 
"Celine has a gift for pulling a reader into her worlds. This contemporary love story is no exception. The main story centers on an attraction that can't be denied, between Jaynie, the office lead, and Bryce, the new token male of the group. Office antics and competitive bets among seven women, co-workers and friends, add a fun and exciting backstory. The New Guy is the first in the trilogy Seven for Seduction, a true serial series. I recommend this book, and the series, with a smile." ~ Editor

http://www.extasybooks.com/978-1-4874-1382-8-the-new-guy

Bryce finds himself the center of attention of an all-woman office. He finds sexy Jaynie's coolness attractive, but is it what she really desires?

What’s a token male to do? Bryce Davison finds himself stuffed with homemade goodies, herbal cures, and attempts to sign him up to play a sport he despises. The only sane person in the all-female office is his aloof yet sexy cube neighbor, Jaynie Baker, and he can't seem to fight his attraction to her.
Jaynie has had enough of men. Left at the altar, there’s no way she’ll take her coworkers up on their wild bet to see who can seduce the mysterious Bryce first. Let the others go for it—she’ll take no part of that bet. Strangely enough, it's Jaynie’s leaving Bryce alone that turns him on the most and increases their mutual attraction.

Can Jaynie win the heart of the new guy? If she does, can she find out what's really behind his distant demeanor to ensure a happily ever after? Will a second chance at love be a winning hand for them both?

An excerpt from the award-winning The New Guy:


Bryce caught her by the hand and spun her back around. She plopped butt first into his lap. He reached out and pushed the door shut with his foot.

“I don’t judge by outward appearances,” he said in a low whisper, his lips mere inches from her own, “but I can’t help but feel attracted to a beautiful woman sitting less than two feet away from me day after day. I’m human, you know. And a guy. We tend to think with the lower half of our bodies at times, and you’ve really got my lower half going gaga. I’m finding it hard to concentrate on my work because all I can think about when you’re in here, with your cologne and your curves, is how delicious you’d look after a long night’s lovemaking session.”

Jaynie felt her breath catch. Did Bryce say what she thought he said? Did he just tell her that he’d been secretly lusting after her all the while she’d been lusting after him? Maybe Raheesha was right. Maybe it was time for her to spill her guts and confess her attraction to him.

What could it hurt? They were both adults. They both knew how to keep a secret. Maybe if they acted on their libidinous impulses and got them out of their systems, they’d both be able to concentrate better on their work assignments in the future?

“Bryce…are you saying you’re attracted to me?”

“What do you think?” His lips danced along her temple as his hands moved across her hips and cupped her butt cheeks.

She took a shaky breath and closed her eyes. “I think you are.” She took another breath for courage. “I’m attracted to you, too.”

His feather-light kisses sent shivers coursing through her frame. “Really?”

“We’ve got to keep this a secret. If it gets out, the whole office will be buzzing about it. I don’t know what Mr. J would do.”

He playfully nibbled on her earlobe and the curve of her neck. “Probably nothing.”

She moaned softly. “How can we be sure?”

“We can’t, but he didn’t get on all your cases when you all were trying to seduce me before.”

Jaynie’s eyes flew open. “Whatever do you mean?”

Bryce laughed. “That first week or so after I arrived? Remember? Everyone in the cube farm was going after me like I was the last piece of meat on the planet and you all were a pack of starving carnivores. Except you, now that I think about it. Why was that?”

“I… I was playing hard to get?”

The lie sounded weak—even to Jaynie’s ears. How could she tell him it was because she felt attracted to him from the moment she'd laid eyes on him? How could she tell him that she worked hard not to gain his attention because of this very thing happening? How could she tell him that she’d had her fill of Mr. Right after the getting-left-at-the-altar affair? That she’d just wanted someone to hold her, love her, and not use her for his own selfish purposes? Could Bryce’s intentions mirror her own?

“Naughty girl." He gave a throaty chuckle. "You wanted me to chase after you. Is that it? Is that’s why you’ve kept me in suspense until now?”

“Uh-huh.” Jaynie sighed. Her hands roved across his strong, broad shoulders and caressed his face. Her lips longed to be possessed by his.

“So…what do you do after you’re caught?” He smiled wickedly.

She shrugged. “Accept my punishment for trying to run away like a good little girl?”

He raised an eyebrow. “Good answer. You’re saying you’re up for a little playtime after hours, with no strings attached. Right?”

“Right.” Jaynie shifted her weight and brought her lips in line with his. If a guy could enjoy unfettered, non-committed sex, then why couldn’t she?

Wanna start your Valentine's celebration with a bang?


What better way to start your Valentine's celebrations with your special someone than to enjoy a super-hot excerpt together from my erotic-romantic comedy novel, Beautiful Dreamer... Maybe you could act it out?  ;-)


Beautiful Dreamer
https://www.extasybooks.com/978-1-4874-1560-0-beautiful-dreamer/

Can a sexy, sleepwalking librarian corral a commitment-shy sheriff during the mayhem of rodeo week? When Marianne the Librarian sleepwalks into the brawny arms of handsome Sheriff Cody Greene, sparks fly and an erotic night of pleasure ensues. Amazingly, Marianne hasn't a clue that their rendezvous even happened.

A confirmed bachelor, Cody realizes Marianne isn't the "love 'em and leave 'em" type he's used to entertaining in bed, and he's worried. Will she make him take a walk down the aisle if he confesses to his part of her fantasies? Can't they just be friends with benefits?

Will Cody be able to tell Marianne the truth about his involvement in her sleepwalking escapades? Will he and Marianne discover beyond their fantasies true love prevails?



Excerpt: Cody realizes Marianne is sleepwalking through her place of work because she acts like she's a damsel in distress and he is a knight in shining armor. But no matter how Cody resists Marianne's  seduction, he finds his match in the normally reserved librarian.



"Marianne, you're tempting me beyond the brink, but you know we can't." Cody took a deep breath, steadying his nerves. Somehow he had to talk her out of this situation without hurting her feelings or losing any more of his clothing. "We have to think about your health and reputation. I don't have anything on me for, uh, you know, protection."


Marianne paused in her litany of kisses upon his neck and brow. She drew back, blinking rapidly as she stared into his serious hazel-green eyes.

"The brave and handsome knight travels without the sheath to his sword?"


He exhaled a painful sigh. "Yes, yes, that's right. I left it along with my white horse back at the castle."


Her eyes narrowed. She reached behind herself and picked up his trousers, plucking his billfold out of the pocket.


"My good lord always carried his sheath in his moneybag just in case." A wicked grin graced her love-swollen lips as she withdrew the forgotten condom from his billfold and waved it inches from his nose. "It appears ye do likewise."


Cody blinked then blinked again. His jaw dropped open to the size of the Palo Duro Canyon. How had that gotten in his wallet? Then it dawned on him. He had picked up a pair of condoms off the ground outside the gymnasium after making his obligatory visit to the senior prom a few weeks back. They were brand-spanking new and in good shape, and he had thought he'd keep them just in case anyone ever needed any for just such an emergency.


"Uh, yeah, it appears I do." He cleared his cracking voice. "It doesn't mean we have to—"


Covering his lips with hers, Marianne silenced any further objections. Her butterfly fingers fluttered across his shoulders and down his sides, coming to a comfortable rest at his tight buns. Caressing him with unrestrained passion, she struggled to remove their remaining barrier.


"Allow me," Cody said, giving up the fight. He rolled his temptress to the side before carefully sliding his shorts down over his rock-hard erection.


Marianne's eyes widened. "My lord has indeed been blessed with a very broad sword."


Her knuckles whitened in their grip around the purple condom wrapper, her small hands trembling ever so slightly.


This has gone far enough. Cody reached out and gently cradled Marianne's delicate face in his big hands and waited for her rapidly shifting focus to settle fully on his face.


"Marianne, it's okay if you want to stop now," he said slowly, deliberately. "I'll understand. I promise."


The sound of tearing plastic echoed throughout the silent library. Her lascivious smile said it all.


"Once the horse has escaped from his stall, it would be a sin not to allow him to gallop forth. Would it not, my lord?"


The look of pure wantonness in her eyes dissolved Cody's last iota of restraint. Marianne cried joyously as he scooped her up and placed her astride him, gently guiding her hands to sheath his member.


He wound his own hands into her thick tresses, bringing her face to meet his in order to partake of a deep and lingering kiss. With exquisite slowness, he eased himself inside her in the most intimate of embraces.


Her tightness enveloped him totally, driving him almost over the edge. Breathing deeply, he struck up a strong and steady rhythm of thrusts. She arched her back and responded with a tantalizing twist of her hips, pulling him deeper into herself and deeper still, seemingly to the depths of her very soul.

They squealed and groaned and bucked and bounced through the sea of cushions, locked in a rollicking dance of desire. His mouth tasted her sweet breasts once again as he stroked her sensitive nub. She cried out in rapturous delight, begging him to come along with her.


A knight can't very well refuse his lady. Cody eagerly obliged his comely companion with a series of hard, quick thrusts. Marianne threw back her head, screaming as the potent eternity of their joining came to its mutual climax. Plunging together over the passion's edge, they drifted calmly back toward earth and collapsed, sated, into each other's arms...



Beautiful Dreamer is available in ebook formats from eXtasy Books, and is also available in Kindle and print at Amazon and other fine ebook retailers.

Two Big Releases Back-to-Back!

Moving house has taken my eye of the ball this past month and this is what happens when you're distracted--your publisher releases not one but two of your biggest books back-to-back!

In order not to get too far behind (and to wet your whistle for some pre-Valentines Day romantic reading), I'll post the synopsis and purchase links from eXtasy Books here. Excerpts will be posted shortly (in between unpacking boxes and handling a million household repairs and domestic crises). 

If you like cowboys and small-town Texas settings (along with some fantastic sleepwalking sexual escapades and rom-com moments), then this first novel will be sure to please:

Amazingly, Marianne hasn't a clue that their rendezvous even happened.

A confirmed bachelor, Cody realizes Marianne isn't the "love 'em and leave 'em" type he's used to entertaining in bed, and he's worried. Will she make him take a walk down the aisle if he confesses to his part of her fantasies? Can't they just be friends with benefits? His young deputy, Benny, seems to have found one in Phyleesha, but Benny's mother, Dulcie, has other things to say about the big-city newcomer.

For her part, Marianne doesn't know if she should continue taking the herbal "sleeping potion" her friend Dulcie gave her to deal with her recent bout of insomnia. Marianne's erotic dreams make her lust after their respectable county sheriff. Surely this is just a phase she's going through a year after her husband was killed in an oil-rig accident. But gorgeous Cody is definitely a temptation worth considering. Too bad his ex, Jolene, is back in town for the rodeo.

Will Cody be able to tell Marianne the truth about his involvement in her sleepwalking escapades? Will he survive the mysterious outbreak of cattle stampeding? And will he and Marianne discover beyond their fantasies true love prevails?

Spice up your holidays! An Excerpt from Santa's Big Little Helper




Be careful what you ask Santa for—you just might get it. Suellen confesses to an angelic hobo she's befriended on Christmas Eve that she lusts after the cover model on her romance novel because he reminds her of Carlos, a shy, handsome trucker who frequents her coffee shop. Santa's helper Carlos is given instructions by his friend Ol' Nick to make Suellen's dreams come true, and when Carlos finds out what they are, he can't wait. A little snow, a bearskin rug, and some fuzzy handcuffs make it a very Merry Christmas for the two lovers!

Excerpt: Suellen wakes up and discovers Carlos in her bed  Christmas morning.

Suellen took a deep breath to steady her nerves. Hmm…Carlos smelled of good honest sweat and soap and what all. She took another deep breath. That was a big mistake. The aroma of his aftershave mixed with the warm musk of a muscular male body made her head spin. 

She could see him, feel him, smell him and, perhaps she could even taste him. This was the most realistic hallucination she’d ever experienced. What a way to come out of a hangover.

“You work for Santa Claus and not a trucking company?” she babbled.

“Both. I started working for Santa a few years ago in between driving jobs.” He chuckled. “His big little helper, he likes to call me.”

Suellen found her gaze wandering from Carlos’ bright grin to the big bulge in his Speedo. “Uh-huh. So, tell me…How many other lonely women have you helped this way for dear old Santa?”

He frowned as a cloud of hurt descended over his ebony eyes. His hands gripped her shoulders tighter. “You’re the first. I promise. I usually help Santa deliver gifts to illegal immigrants and others who hang out in remote places. I also travel along the river on Christmas Eve and give out gifts of food and blankets in the shanty towns.”

“What a wonderful thing, helping those less fortunate.” She relaxed slightly, but she couldn’t block out the effects of his masculine presence. 

“Glad you approve and don’t think I’m a stalker.”

“No, of course you aren’t, and I didn’t mean to doubt you.” Suellen took a deep breath and regretted it. His spicy cologne scent possessed the same mind-numbing effect as the little hobo’s whiskey. “It’s just I’m usually not such a naughty girl. I mean, I’ve been on Santa’s good girl's list for years—so he’s told me.”

Carlos smiled. “Yes, he told me. It’s why he didn’t want you to be alone anymore.”

All 4 Heavenly Bodies are here at last! (Excerpt)

All four stories in the Heavenly Bodies series are here at last... Enjoy an excerpt from book 4, the easy-to-remember titled one, Heavenly Bodies.

 Heavenly Bodies
Book 4 in the series 

After an asteroid collides with his spaceship, killing all others on board, astronaut Frank Rimmer cryogenically freezes himself to await rescue. When Frank wakes up, he's greeted by a pair of rescuers resembling pin-up girls from his crewmate's calendar. The girls who rescue him are aliens who can project images into Frank's mind and appear as he would like to see them. Sister-clones Mahla and Shahla tell him they sincerely want to learn more about human beings and their mating rituals. They study "unofficial files" onboard and ask Frank for his help in understanding human sexuality. Can Frank help these two gorgeous angels experience an erotic cultural awakening?

  
Excerpt: Frank receives some TLC from his two very eager-to-please rescuers:

Mahla’s eyes widened. “I thought you said humans didn’t possess tentacles?”

“Not the kind you’re thinking of,” Shahla explained. She lightly stroked his rigid rod. “This is a male human’s reproductive organ, called a penis.”

Lord, that feels good. He moaned. “Hmm… There’s no need to get technical, ladies. Let’s just call it a cock, okay?”

“Very nice cock, Frank,” Mahla said, joining in on the stroking. “Shall we help you into the bathing apparatus?”

“Hmmm. Yes, but first I should help you two undress.”

He took a deep breath and steadied himself. Shahla raised her arms and allowed him to slide the silky nightgown up and over her magnificent curves. Mahla turned to him and indicated for him to do likewise. Two gorgeous, well-proportioned blondes stood naked before him. He felt faint with desire.

“Frank, are you all right?” Shahla flashed him a concerned look. “Your cock has turned very red and stiff.”

“Shall I massage it for you?”

Mahla’s wide-eyed, innocent expression was almost too good to be true. He coughed. His brain must still be defrosting from the effects of the cryo-freeze. He had to get a grip on his body’s wayward responses. “Uh, no, that’s not necessary, ladies. Let’s hop in before the water cools.”
