Happy Anniversary International Heat!!!

IHAnniversaryWelcome to the International Heat Anniversary Blog Tour!!!  I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have met this group of ladies last year at Lori Foster’s Get Together.  Though I’d known many of them through various online exchanges due to our mutual love of erotic romance, it was after that meeting that they invited me to join International Heat.  Now, I don’t know what I’d do without them to chat with.  And that’s before you add in all the wonderful readers we’ve had the pleasure to “meet” through our yahoo group, Heat Wave Readers.  I’m looking forward to many more years like the last one 🙂

And now for the good stuff. Here’s the blurb and an excerpt from my latest release, Kate’s Crew.  Available now from Samhain Publishing.

Kate's Crew by Jayne Rylon

Kate's Crew by Jayne Rylon

Nothing’s sexier than a man, or five, with power tools.

Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. No one could blame Kate for leaning out the window for a better view of the manscape. The nasty fall that follows isn’t part of her fantasy—but the man who saves her from splattering the sidewalk is definitely the star.

When Mike personally attends to her injuries, she realizes her white knight in a hard hat has a tender side, giving her no choice but to surrender to the lust that’s been arcing between them since day one. In the aftermath of the best sex of her life, she whispers her most secret desire: to be ravaged by his crew.

She never expected Mike would dare her to take what she wants—or that the freedom to make her most decadent desires come true could be the foundation for something lasting…

Warning: This book may cause you to spontaneously combust as five hot guys bring a woman’s wildest fantasies to life during one blazing summer affair.


“I’m sorry, Mike. You can’t stay.”

He flinched, but refused to budge. When she tried to avert her face from his persuasive gaze, he captured her lip between his teeth then nipped her. “Enough. Enough running, Kate.”

Her brain struggled to catch up to this alternate reality where she finally had what she wanted, but she couldn’t keep it. If she could just get dressed maybe she could usher him out with a modicum of pride intact.

“What happened to our clothes?” Her question came out a bit garbled since he maintained his hold on her lip a few seconds longer. “I remember falling asleep with pajamas on.”

“It’s fucking hot up here at night. I’ll have James take a look at the air-conditioning later. You stripped after you’d been asleep for five minutes.” His eyelids drooped at the memory. “Now quit stalling. Why are you fighting what’s between us?”

He dusted her mouth with his even as he left a sticky trail of arousal in the wake of his half-hard shaft, which traced a shallow arc across her abdomen. She forced her hips to stay glued to the bed instead of tipping up to align her aching pussy with the head of his cock. Even as endless passion threatened to obliterate her better judgment, guilt corrupted her bliss.

“It’s not fair to do this to you,” she whispered.

“To tempt me until I swear blue balls isn’t some high school myth? To rile me up with those sweet smiles and naughty looks, then bolt whenever I get within arm’s reach? To refuse me all damn summer until I end up fucking you like an animal before I’ve even taken you out to dinner? What? What exactly isn’t fair about this bullshit?”

He’d never shown her even a hint of impatience before. It left her no choice but to be honest. To be direct.

“It’s not fair to start something serious with you when I want to fuck your partners, too.”

Heat crawled up her chest then progressed onto her cheeks at the admission. She’d never had these kinds of urges before. Well, maybe once or twice. But only in an abstract way. She’d never had anyone specific in mind, and she’d certainly never admitted the fantasy to a lover.

Kate had tried to discount her constant hunger for her new neighbors as a product of the steamy season, their often half-naked bodies or, even, her hormones kicking in as she got older. None of the lies held water.

Something about this man drew her like a bear to honey. And his friends sweetened the deal. Fear of his rejection had her mind racing so out of control, she didn’t realize he’d started laughing until he flopped to his back on the mattress beside her.

He flung his contoured arm over his eyes, burying his once-broken nose in the crook of his elbow. The tribal armband ringing his biceps jerked as he tried to stifle his amusement but failed. Kate’s face flamed even as her stomach cramped.

She slugged his shoulder. “What the hell are you laughing at? I know I’m nothing special, but I’ve seen the way your friends look at me when they think I can’t see. Hell, I can feel their eyes undressing me every time I bend over. It’s driving me insane!”

When she shifted—tucking her legs under her to scurry out of the bed—he rolled to his side, propped his scruffy jaw on his hand then grabbed her around her waist and refused to let go.

“There’s no need to get your pretty panties in a bunch, doll.”

“Good thing, since I’m not wearing any.” She thrust her chin in the air.

“True, that.” His pupils dilated. “But you’re missing my point.”

Mike coaxed her to recline beside him with languorous strokes of his fingers on her waist. Then he shook his head as if remembering what he’d been saying. “I can’t believe you made me chase you like a rabid dog because my crew turns you on.”

“It’s not just that they’re smoking.” She cleared her throat.

“No worries. I caught you the first time around, babe. You want to get it on with them.”

Kate clamped her bottom lip between her teeth then gave a reluctant nod. “I’m sorry.”

“Stop it. Stop assuming you know what I want.”

How had he ended up above her again? His laser stare sliced through the flimsy denials she’d hoped to construct.

“Ever hear the saying, `Work hard, play harder’?” Mike encroached on her personal space, filling every gap with his scent, his heat and his challenge.

“What about it?” She gulped like a fish out of water.

“I’ve known the crew for ten years, ever since we suffered through trade school. There’s not much we haven’t done together. I’m a pretty open-minded guy. Would it surprise you if I said you wouldn’t be the first woman we’d shared?” He traced the ridge of her collarbone with the tip of his middle finger.

She tried to answer but couldn’t, her throat had gone dry.

“You think about it, Kate. Where’s your feisty spirit now? Do you have the guts to go after what you want? All you have to do is ask.”

Just when she thought he would steal her inhibitions with another kiss, he sprang over her then headed for the shower. On the vintage-tile threshold to the bathroom, he turned. “And, one more thing, sweetness… You’re plenty special. Never doubt that.”

Dream Machine is in PRINT!

YEY!  This has been a long time coming for me.  I sat down in mid 2006 to write my first story and Dream Machine popped out. Well, okay, it took over a year for the first draft and has been revised many times since then… but, today it’s out in print!!! I’m soooo excited.  🙂

The best dreams are made of naughty and spice.

Rebecca Williams is about to achieve her goal of graduating from a prestigious university and winning a coveted spot in her mentor’s cutting-edge psychology practice. She just needs one more qualification: sexual experience. She never dreamed it would come at the hands of the man she’s admired and wanted for six years. Dr. Kurt Foster.

Kurt, a brilliant psychologist in the field of sexual therapy, is a scientist to the core. Attraction and lust are nothing more than chemical reactions, in his clinical opinion. Love? It’s just a figment of the imagination born of nature’s directives. He’s on the brink of proving it with a new machine that uncovers latent desires.

In short order, Becca’s forbidden lust for her boss is exposed. As Kurt continues to enlighten her on the darker facets of her sexuality, the student unexpectedly becomes the teacher.

And suddenly Kurt is confronted with the irrefutable proof that love is so much more than a societal construction.

Warning: This book is only suitable for readers who are turned on by hot doctors engaging in sexual experiments, bondage, ménage a trois, exhibitionism, suspension, anal sex and other deviant behavior using mechanical stimulation devices they’ve invented to make your wildest dreams come true.

Help Fight Piracy – Contest

Many ebook authors are victims of piracy.  That’s why I’m so proud to share a project my fellow International Heat member, Jambrea Jo Jones, has contributed to.  The Stealing My Heart anthology is available today from Total-E-Bound.  It’s choc full of mouthwatering stories from Jambrea, Carol Lynne, Stephani Hecht and a handful of others I’ve sadly never heard of before.  So, to play my part I’ve purchased two copies.  One for myself (so I can come out from under my rock between writing books!) and one to give away to a lucky reader.

All you have to do to be entered is leave a comment saying, “Pirates Hurt Authors” to be entered.  I’ll draw a winner Wednesday evening around 8pm EST.  See below for more details on the antho!

Stealing My Heart

Be it in another time, another dimension, or another world, the authors of the Stealing My Heart Anthology will take you away to a world where male/male love and passion reign.

Stephani Hecht, Jambrea Jo Jones, A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly, Carol Lynne, Jaime Samms, and Serena Yates, have all contributed their talents and their time to make this exciting contribution to male/male erotic romance.

Stolen Memories by Carol Lynne

On the eve of his mother’s funeral, Aden Brousseau met Victor DePasse for the first time. For years his mother had warned him to stay away from the dark-haired neighbour, but on that particular evening, Aden hadn’t listened. He’d been fascinated with the handsome man since the day he’d overheard his mother and grandfather refer to Victor as a vampire.

Now, twenty years later, Aden once again is in the presence of Victor DePasse. Only this time he’s older and knows exactly what he wants.

After years of visiting his charge in his dreams, Victor suddenly has the man he’s fallen in love with in front of him. Does he defy his orders and make Aden his, or does he obey and give Aden up to his destiny?

Stealing Rain by A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly

In the not too distant future, water becomes so scarce the hunt is on for any drop on other planets. Drew and Trace, former lovers find that love, not just rain, is high at any price.

Drew Lecour was once the pride of the military, until he’d decided to leave the federation and became a rogue, selling water to the highest bidder. Trace had a history with Drew, one that involved some hot sex and broken promises. And now, after not seeing him for years, Drew and his crew suddenly show up on a planet Trace has been contracted to protect, a planet where Drew is set to drill for water.

Trace doesn’t have a choice. He has to defend the water supply. His men are waiting for their leader to give the order to kill, but he can’t bring himself to do that. So he confiscates Drew’s equipment and takes him prisoner; but having Drew naked and at his mercy proves far more challenging than he’d anticipated, and then, there are others forces at play.

Hotwired Heart by Jaime Samms

A good car thief needs sixty seconds, but grand theft heart might take even less time than that.

Freedom and trust; opposite sides of the same coin that could give expert car thief, Marky, the win he’s looking for. Little does he know escaping his gang ties will lead him through heartbreak and into cuffs he hadn’t even thought to watch out for. Now he can trust the powerful man who wants to help, or he can keep running.

It all depends on how much he values his freedom, and whether or not Roland has managed the impossible; hijacking Marky’s carefully guarded heart.

The Magic Thieves by Serena Yates

Elryk Muyd’omir is the most powerful lightning wizard born on Tah’Nut in two hundred years and a pacifist. When he refuses to co-operate with the illegally ruling Xoh’kas family they torture and kill his lover. Rather than risking the death of thousands by losing control over his lightning magic in his rage, he flees to Earth—a place without magic. When the gateway that connects Tah’Nut to other worlds opens Elryk knows that the Law Forces have found him. It is time to either face cruel punishment or fight.

Kaythan Vs’urr is a Law Force Commander who is sent to retrieve the criminal wizard Elryk. He is expected to return him to Tah’Nut for ‘reprogramming’. Secretly disgusted with the Xoh’kas’ lack of determination to stop the magic thieves, he has decided to win Elryk for his plan of defeating them. All they need to do is find the fabled Magic Shield to prevent further thievery.

Can Elryk trust the gorgeous Law Commander who wants his help? Will the two men be able to work together to defeat the Xoh’kas and eliminate the magic thieves?

Stealing Michael by Jambrea Jo Jones

Can one wrong make it right?

Robert’s mother pushes him into stealing a painting. He is in over his head when the homeowner catches him in the act. It leaves him wondering what to do now?

Michael’s life turns in a new direction when a stranger enters his home and the urge to protect the thief overcomes his common sense. He knows he should be angry but who can resist a thief that looks like an angel?

Dragon’s Eye by Stephani Hecht

After a decade of living under the iron rule of a sorcerer, dragon shifter, Duncan Moore finally has his chance for freedom. With his former master dead, all Duncan has to do is steal the very thing that has been holding him captive all these years, his dragon’s eye. The stone holds his magic and his dragon self and without it, he can never go home again.

What should be an easy theft turns complicated when he finds that someone has beat him to the eye and he has no idea where it could be. To add to things he suddenly finds himself teamed up with the dead sorcerers’ son, Trent. For years Duncan has longed for Trent, but had never dared act on his desires. Then one night of passion between the men changes everything and Duncan realises that he could lose something far more valuable than his dragon’s eye, he could lose Trent.

Will Duncan be able to save them both? Or will he have to make the ultimate sacrifice?
