He wasn’t prepared for the brazen little smile that hooked her sinful lips. Read a #teaser from guest @AuthorHKCarlton If you Can't Handle the Heat


Thank you for inviting me to your blog today. I’m doubly excited to share not only the re-launch of, If You Can’t Handle the Heat, but this re-release is also my first self-publishing venture.

This story was previously published with the title If You Can't Stand the Heat. Though there is a little bit of added content, the story remains relatively the same.

In this erotic story, two very different professionals are brought together as celebrity judges on a reality-based cooking show. Sesto Théodore—the celeb chef that the show is built around—meets walking cliché, Syn Fully, erotic novelist. Though there is an immediate conflict in personalities, there is also an instant sizzling attraction. A classic clash and burn.

Blurb:

An unlikely couple is brought together as celebrity judges on a new reality-based cooking show.

Sesto Théodore, is an arrogant yet well respected American-Italian chef, with several five-star restaurants.

Once bitten, twice shy, Syn Fully, is a jaded author of erotica, rocketing her way up all the best sellers lists.

From the moment Syn and Sesto meet, their personalities clash, yet behind the scenes sparks fly. Getting together would be a recipe for disaster, but hot sex with no-strings couldn’t hurt. At least not until real feelings get involved.

But just when Syn considers opening her damaged heart to the cocky chef, video of rather personal content is leaked online. Sesto immediately jumps to conclusions and accuses Syn of the privacy breach.

Can the arrogant chef forgive and forget, or will his pride leave him out in the cold?

Somebody’s about to get burned…

Possible Triggers: Please note one scene contains borderline bdsm and dubious consent/forcible confinement. Also in this story intimate video is obtained without the knowledge or consent of the participants involved, and later distributed online

Author’s Note: This erotic story has been previously published with the title, If You Can’t Stand the Heat. Though there is a little bit of added content, the story remains relatively the same. It has been re-edited and re-formatted for re-release, and has a sizzling new cover thanks to Studioenp

Excerpt:

Sesto took the opportunity to turn his wrath on Syn. “May I speak to you out in the hall, please!” he demanded, shooting to his feet.

“Of course,” she responded, haughtily, as though she hadn’t just been giving him the initial stages of a hand job under the table.

Sesto allowed Syn to take the lead. He was momentarily captivated by her long shapely legs, as she stalked across the space, confident and oh-so fuckin’ sexy in those red stilettos. Sesto pulled level with her and couldn’t resist the urge to place his hand to the small of her back, left bare by the severe cut of her dress. If he wasn’t mistaken, she’d trembled at the contact. Or was it his hand that quivered?

In the corridor, Syn rounded on him, at the same moment he blurted, “What the fuck do you think…”

The words died on his tongue, as she once again stroked his shaft through his trousers. Her gaze settled on his mouth. Her breathing was shallow.

“Where’s your dressing room?” she asked, backing him up.

Sesto grabbed her other wrist and dragged her into the green room, before slamming the door behind them.

He yanked her hand, above her head and forced it against the door. He half-expected her to fight. What he wasn’t prepared for was the brazen little smile that hooked her sinful lips, as she raised her arm to join the other. With both hands stretched above her head Syn arched toward him, thrusting her beautiful tits, right in his face.

“What the fuck are you doing?” he asked again. “We don’t even know each other.”

“I know. Isn’t it wicked, how our bodies want to though.”

He groaned, shifting uncomfortably foot to foot, yet he couldn’t focus on anything but her lovely breasts.

“Go ahead, Théo, set them free,” she tempted, her voice barely above a whisper.

Gay romance with an edge of fantasy, Snowflake Wine, new release #MMromance Read a #teaser



From Elodie

The story is contemporary gay romance with an edge of fantasy, especially written as a sweet but sexy Christmas treat.
Jamie Snow and Nathan Bloom, my characters are as usual, dear to me.

Jamie has battled all his life with his strange, fantastic gift. His is the character that brings the element of fantasy to the story. The inspiration behind the creation of this character came, weirdly enough, in the summer, when I visited a ruined abbey. In the grounds were flowering shrubs that I’d never encountered before. From a distance, the flowers looked like frost, and as I drew close, into my mind came the idea of Jamie, a sprite who loves cold, ice, frost, and to comfort himself in the warm weather, he decorated the shrubs with frost flowers.

Nathan Bloom is the perfect partner for Jamie—gorgeous, calm, loving and open. He’s looking for love. He’s onto Jamie’s gifts long before he lets Jamie know it. This is a love story—romantic, sexy, hopeful.


Blurb

Hunky Nathan Bloom works late for the company putting up the town Christmas lights and decorations.

Gorgeous, enigmatic, Jamie Snow works late forecasting the weather from his desk in the meteorology office.

Nathan sighs over the prospect of a holiday season with no one to love.

Jamie wonders if he’ll ever find a man to love who will accept his mysterious origins and talents.

One cold night, as Nathan finishes hoisting the wreath lights up the building where Jamie works, they meet.

The brilliant festive lights aren’t the only things to sparkle as the two men connect on a deep level.

Be delighted by a delicious, contemporary, gay romance with an edge of fantasy this season.
Sometimes being different is awesome.



Read a teaser:

Jamie Snow sat alongside Nathan. He glanced across at the man who stirred his frosty heart. He’s so attractive. Jamie hadn’t loved in a long time. He felt more than ready for it—longed for it on lonely nights. He wasn’t about to give up on the chance that this man might want a lover, that he was gay wasn’t in question. No straight guy looked the way he had at another man.

“My name’s Jamie, Jamie Snow.” He softened his voice as he spoke. The man beside him inspired tenderness and he felt a little prick of guilt. Using the weather to flirt with him had been inspired but maybe a little naughty.

Nathan drove the truck into a wide car lot that Jamie hadn’t known existed behind the furniture store on the end of the main street. “Here we are. The store allows us to leave the bigger rigs here every year. Jamie Snow—that’s an interesting name for a meteorologist—mine’s Nathan Bloom.”

Jamie’s smile infused his tone. “Yes. People tease me sometimes at work, they’ll know we’ve forecast it and as I walk by they’ll say, ‘here comes the snow,’ but I don’t mind. I like this name.”

“You’ve had others?” Nathan asked with a laugh.

Jamie didn’t want to reply. He waited. I won’t be lying to this lovely guy if I don’t answer.

Nathan turned off the truck engine and twisted to talk to Jamie. “It’s a cool name. Where do you live?”

It appeared he’d forgotten his question.
Happiness trickled into Jamie’s soul that the attractive man beside him liked his name, and used the word, cool. Eagerly, Jamie told Nathan his address on the outskirts of the town.

Nathan grinned, his eyes reflecting Jamie’s emotion. “I know it well. I live a couple of streets south from there.”

Read the teaser

A host stepped forward and greeted him. “Good evening, Tobias Mars. It’s good to see you again.”
A smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. Anyone would think I was here every night.
“Thank you. Is Duet available?”
The host’s expression reflected regret. “I’m sorry but they’re booked. All the teams are. I do however have one delightful companion available. He works solo. He’s very beautiful.”

Tobias broke into a grin. The guy’s selling this one and yet he doesn’t have to. I just need someone, practically anyone. “He sounds perfect. Thank you.”

His host led him to a vacant room and left him. “Your companion will be along soon.” He gave a small bow.

If nothing else, the place has made me smile tonight. Amused, Tobias looked around, laughing softly. Only a few candles struggled to light the room, the sheer drapes unusually drawn, didn’t stir, which meant the tall windows were closed. Tobias pulled off his jacket and undershirt in one hurried move. He glanced at the low bed and desire filled him. His cock hardened as he thought about the pleasure to follow. Dante’s right. I do need this. He pushed off his boots and pants, stripping completely. Tobias knew the companion would arrive naked and he wanted immediate contact with the hard body of a man. He sheathed his cock in one fist and stroked to ease the ache to fuck.

The door opened. Tobias thought one of the Duet pair entered the room. The same colored face paint swirled on the man’s face and extended into his hair, making it glint red and gold in the candlelight. The host was right. This guy was beautiful. His body hard, and his cock huge, erect and enticing, Tobias went to him and clasped him close. His cock rammed against the companion’s. The man’s gasp flew over Tobias’s ear. Tingles shot down his neck and he swept his hands down the man’s hips and grabbed his ass. He shifted his head and kissed the companion as he rocked his hips, rubbing his cock against the gorgeous man’s ramrod column.

As the companion returned the kiss, his hands drifted up and down the sides of Tobias’s body in barely-there sweeps bringing up goose bumps. Everywhere the man touched tingled.

Tobias broke the kiss to breathe. “Do you have a name you use?” he murmured against the companion’s delicious lips. He knew the companions never gave their real names and that’s why some of them wore makeup or eye-masks, too, to protect their identity.

Without replying, the man slipped his hands around Tobias’s face and kissed him again, a gentle merge of lips on lips.

The tenderness in the kiss poured over Tobias’s lonely soul like melting honey. A soft moan escaped him as the man shifted one of his hands to between their bodies and grasped Tobias’s cock. In a fluid movement, the companion broke the kiss and dropped to his knees.

He grasped Tobias’s hips and pulled, burying his face in Tobias’s balls. He traced a path to the head of Tobias’s leaking dick with his tongue and lapped up the pre-cum there.

Tobias groaned and grasped handfuls of the man’s dark hair desperate to come. He whispered, “I need this so badly. Make me come.”

The companion grasped his shaft in a strong grip and then took the remaining length of Tobias’s cock into his mouth. In strokes that emulated fucking, he brought Tobias’s dick in and out of the tight circle of his lips, as he trailed the fingertips of his other hand around Tobias’s aching, lifted balls.



Tobias could hardly breathe. His moans matched the delectable movements of his companion’s tight wet mouth around his cock. In and out, sucking his cock and stroking his balls, the beautiful man gave Tobias such pleasure his legs weakened. He took his hands from the companion’s lush hair and leaned on the man’s muscled shoulders. The waves of orgasm built through his cock until he yelled as spurts of pleasure pumped out his cum. His ass clenched tight. His eyes closed. He groaned as sensations traveled between his legs and zapped in his balls. He hammered his hips taking the last of the mind-blowing feeling.
