Pre-order my erotic, paranormal Christmas romance, The Invitation – only 99c! Available Nov 17th.

THE INVITATION EBOOK COVER

Just in time for Christmas, my Christmas erotic romance, The Invitation is available for pre-order. The official release date is Friday November 17th.

This is one of the first stories I ever wrote and submitted for publication. Gabriel Longthorn holds a special place in my heart, and I’m so happy that his story is once again available – with a spectacular new cover.

Big thanks to the amazing, R. L. Weeks for creating this masterpiece!

THE INVITATION BANNER (1)

As always, the book will be available via Amazon for 99c and free for Kindle Unlimited readers!

Blurb:

Every Christmas, Evie dreams of attending the glamorous masquerade ball at Longthorn, home of the reclusive Gabriel. She watches from afar, wishing she could be near him. Gabriel, the man in her most erotic fantasies. Then the invitation arrives, along with a beautiful mask and dress. Her presence is requested.

Gabriel needs Evie. As king of the Shadow world, he knows only one woman can complete him, can sate both his infinite carnal lust and the ache in his lonely heart. He’s spent years waiting for Evie, and he plans to claim her, body and soul.

 

Excerpt:

Her blood thickened. Desire punched through her fear. Her breasts swelled and her nipples tightened. Moisture slicked her thighs as if she’d inhaled a potent drug that made her instantly pliant and aroused.

Her drug had a name. Gabriel Longthorn.

The man of her childhood dreams. The man of her womanly fantasies.

Time slowed and the music became a distant echo as his gaze met hers. A predatory smile spread across his chiseled face and her heart almost beat out of her chest. Christ, he was beautiful. Devastating. And she wanted to fling herself on him.

Her strong physical reaction defied explanation. She’d been around handsome men before and never felt this sexual.

Both women scowled when they realized Gabriel no longer cared what they had to say. Evie resisted the urge to glance over her shoulder. Was he really looking at her and not some stunning redhead standing behind her?

He unfolded himself from the chair in a way that was much too graceful for a man his size before moving through the crowd.

She stared. He was hypnotic. Mesmerizing. The crowd parted. All eyes watched as he purposefully strode toward her. A smile curled the edges of his lips.

Dressed in a white ruched shirt and a frock coat of the finest dark-blue velvet, he was the epitome of an old-fashioned mystical being. His white breeches pulled across his groin as he walked, leaving nothing to the imagination. Black knee-high boots completed the outfit.

He stopped inches away from her. She could smell his spicy scent as he took the champagne from her grasp and handed it to a passing guest. His ice-blue eyes stared intently into hers.

“Miss Ward. Thank you for the pleasure of your company this delightful Christmas Eve.” He bowed and took her hand. He brushed his lips gently across her skin. His breath caressed the tiny hairs and she felt that caress between her thighs, as if he’d pressed his lips against her clit.

Her breathing hitched. She chided herself for being so enthralled. He was just a man. Granted, he was unlike any man she’d ever seen—charismatic, charming, gentlemanly, not to mention studly.

Good and evil warred inside her mind. She wanted to slide her body against his, run her hand across his groin and test the weight of his cock. Would it be as impressive and thick as the outline in his breeches promised?

Pervert, the voice inside her head cried.

She gathered her wits from the gutter. “The pleasure is all mine, Mr. Longthorn. I do wonder why I received an invitation.”

He stroked the pulse point at her wrist, rubbing slow circles and stoking her arousal. “Because, Miss Ward, you have a very fertile imagination. Sometimes we all need to take a little time to dream.”

Another footman brought out a chair to match Gabriel’s. The staff was amazing, anticipating the guests’ every need. Where did he find these people?

Gabriel turned to the crowd and walked toward the raised dais. Everyone stared at them as if she were a specimen under a microscope.

As if sensing her discomfort, Gabriel smiled and addressed the guests. “Please, my honored and most noble guests, continue with the ball! There is champagne to be enjoyed, food to be savored and decadent pleasures to be tasted…”

99c SALE for CLAIMING RUBY (and another awesome review)

ClaimingRuby

Claiming Ruby, the first book in the BDSM Mission Pleasure series is now on sale at 99c! You can purchase a copy from Amazon. Or you can read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

Ruby has a secret. Beneath her prissy exterior lies a submissive in desperate need of a Master. After her past disastrous attempt at exploring her fantasies, she buried her cravings deep and told herself she’d be fine without giving in to them. Then she meets Joshua. He’s everything she’s ever fantasized about—and everything she’s feared.

Joshua didn’t start out wealthy—he’s an ex-marine who made his fortune after seeing his fair share of war. His wealth and lavish lifestyle are nothing next to his driving need to claim Ruby for his own. He’d give up everything to collar her for a lifetime, and he’ll have to use every sinful dominant trick he knows to make her let him in.

Inside Scoop: This book features a hero who knows what his submissive needs, whether it’s being tied up or being taken in public with the assistance of two other hot marines. Please note this book was previously published by Ellora’s Cave.

I’m so excited. Claiming Ruby got a 5* review from The Romance Reviews!

It was one of the TOP PICKS!

trrtoppicks

Thanks so much for Gabrielle Sally who read Claiming Ruby and gave it such an amazing review.

Oh. I have to say that Scarlett Sanderson’s CLAIMING RUBY was downright delicious. I’m not entirely sure what it is about the story but it lit me up in all the right ways. From how charming Ruby was to the understated masculinity of Joshua and how easily Ruby managed to reduce him to a clever mix of unschooled boy battling with new emotions versus his scrumptious dominance.

Review for At Their Command 4/5 stars

trrreviewed

I’m once again so excited to share a lovely review from Knotty Reviewer from The Romance Reviews

Scarlett Sanderson

4 out of 5 stars

Scarlett Sanderson is one of my go-to authors for kinky erotica, and this short story did it for me. Granted, it was a Christmas story, and it is July, but it’s always nice to have a little holiday spirit during a totally different holiday.

You can read the full review here

At Their Command is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. It’s free for Kindle Unlimited members!

Blurb:

Have you been naughty or nice?

All Hope wants for Christmas is Ethan St. Claire. She’s had a thing for him since high school, when he was the bad boy and she was the class geek. Now she’s older, wiser…and dying of sexual frustration. Fantasies of having Ethan and his best friend Dominic at the same time drive her wild with unsated need.

Ethan has always loved Hope, and he’s finished waiting for her to realize they’re meant for each other. He’s taking command and giving Hope exactly what she needs. 

If she’s nice, he’ll give her a sexy spanking. If she’s naughty, he and Dominic will double her pleasure as an extra-lusty Christmas treat.

#SatSpanks – Claiming Ruby

OTK Sat Spanks-dusty rose

I’m taking part in the #SatSpanks hashtag today and sharing a spanking snippet from Claiming Ruby...

ClaimingRuby

“Such a pretty ass.” He massaged her cheeks, his large hand warm against her skin.

He pinched the flesh and she yelped. The first sting of pain after years of nothing sent endorphins racing through her blood.

“Like that?” His husky tone betrayed his calm exterior.

A feminine thrill ran through her. She might not be model material but Joshua obviously found her attractive. She nodded. “Mmmm.”

“Good.”

The heavy thwack startled her. She hadn’t thought he’d start off so hard.

She blinked back tears. She would not cry.

“Such a fuckable ass. You should see how you’re blushing for me. So pink and pretty.” He soothed her heated cheeks by continuing the circular massaging motion. It eased the ache and calmed her nerves, gave her time to recover. “Do you want more, Ruby?”

She nodded, unable to do anything else. Pain gave way to intense pleasure. Her clit throbbed. She was so wet. Her breasts hung heavy and full.

“Ask me for more.” He dipped his fingers lower, stroked the seam of her slit.

“Please, please spank me again,” she begged in a whisper.

 

“You_re so beautiful. You_re flushing a gorgeous shade of red. Every Dominant in the club wants to fuck you tonight but you belong to me. I_m the only one fucking this pussy.”

Release Day for Claiming Ruby and giveaway. Woohoo!

I can’t tell you how excited I am because today is the re-release day for Claiming Ruby!

falon

I wrote this story in 2013 and released it with Ellora’s Cave. I never got to finish the series due to the problems with Ellora’s Cave, but now I can very happily say I can bring you the Mission Pleasure series!

ClaimingRuby

Claiming Ruby is the first in the kink BDSM series and contains one of my favorite heroes – Joshua Quinn. He’s a ruthless businessman, ex-marine and kinky Dom. He also stops at nothing to get what he wants.

Things I’ve been…reading and watching

When I’m not writing or working as my alter ego (super badass librarian), I read a lot of books and watch a lot of tv shows. I am a total geek.

tv and books

Mister Scarlett has joked that I watch pretty much every piece of trash on tv. I disagree, I watch highly entertaining, highly education television…*ahem* Actually I do watch an awful lot of tv, but it’s part of my downtime so I don’t feel guilty.

Here are a few tv and books shows I’ve been enjoying recently:

iZombie

izombie

I’ve just watched the last episode of season 3 on Netflix. I love this show! Such a great concept with lots of humor and questions about how zombies would handle integrating into society once they are ‘revealed’.

The 100

the-100-recap

This show just keeps getting better and better. Although *MAJOR SPOILER READ NO FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN SEASON 4* I can’t believe they killed Roan. He was one of my favorite characters *sobs*

I would recommend this if you love gritty, futuristic drama.

American Gods

american_gods_characterart_mrnancy_amazon

I watched this weekly on Amazon Prime. It was the most visually stunning, fucked up show I’ve seen in a while. I love what David Slade did with some Hannibal episodes, and this was no different. It was amazing and confusing, and I’m sooo hoping they make another series.

Those are just a few. I’ve also been watching Dark Matter (excellent sci-fi show on the SciFi channel), Lethal Weapon, Shadowhunters, Reign, Quantico. The list goes on!

Now onto books. I consume books like a yummy piece of cake. I get through 2-3 a week. Here my favourites from the last few weeks:

Wicked Things by Callie Hart

wicked things

Love, love, love Zeth Mayfair, almost as much as adore Callie Hart. I’ve only just discovered her books in the past few months (thank you, Kindle Unlimited!) and I’ve become a complete fan girl. Zeth fucking Mayfair is amazing – dark, brooding, violent and completely adorable. You really should check out the Blood and Roses series!

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

come sundown

I’ve had a very long relationship with Nora Roberts, as I’m sure most of us romance readers have. In my eyes she is the Queen of romance. I remember reading Homeport many, many, many years ago and falling in love. That’s when I first realised I wanted to write what I write. Come Sundown is the latest in her stand alone romantic suspense novels, and in my opinion, is one of the better ones. Cowboys, romance and crime. Definite winner!

Delicate Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan

delicate ink

This book has been on my kindle for over six months and finally stared it. All I can say is wow, how have I NOT read this series?! I believe it’s up to something like book 8. I’m kicking myself for missing out. Tattoos, hot sex, bearded hero…yummy. The good thing is I can purchase each book every time I reach a writing goal – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 😉

COVER REVEAL – Claiming Ruby (Book 1 Mission Pleasure)

Joshua and Ruby are sooo hot together, and Joshua is very alpha.

I also have the covers for the next two books in the series, Taming Nora and Enslaving Dana, but they are a secret…for now.

I’m finally pleased to announce the ALL NEW final book, Enslaving Dana is almost complete! I’ve put off writing Bastien’s story for so long because of the problems with my previous publishers but I am glad I’ll soon be able to share Bastien’s story with you. It’s a hot one!

I’m so excited to be sharing these characters with you. I love kinky, alpha heroes and the women that become their submissive’s 🙂 I hope you enjoy reading them.

 

 

Visual porn – art by Luis Royo

Luis Royo is a god…not really, but certainly in my eyes. He is probably my favorite artist (I said probably because I can’t decide between him and Caravaggio).

Royo’s art is full of sexuality. They are sexy, very edgy and dangerous. I cannot take my eyes off any of his work. I even have one his images as my desktop background.

It’s impossible to look at his images and not be inspired.

As soon as I get my new study I’m going to get a few prints to add to the wall.

Here are a few of my favorites:
