Tied up at a hockey game? Yep, Jessica E. Subject goes there. #eroticromance #1NS

As we are in round one of the Stanley Cup playoffs, hockey is discussed among Canadians more and more. On the streets, we see cars with flags of the driver's favorite team. People place team flags in their windows, and jerseys are worn EVERYWHERE.

When I wrote my fifth 1Night Stand story for Decadent Publishing, Sudden Breakaway, I wanted to combine so many things in one story. And hockey was one of those things. Although it is not mentioned in the story due to copyright reasons, the game is between the Ottawa Senators (my fav team) and the Washington Capitals. And though neither the hero or heroine in the story are hockey players, their encounter is hot enough to melt the ice.

Here's an excerpt:

“You’re beautiful, Paige.” He drew his finger across her body, starting from the top of her thong, up past her navel, and in between her breasts. He circled her erect buds with his thumbs. “I’m going to enjoy teasing you until you’re begging me to let you come. Now, to find some restraints. I’ll have to improvise since I don’t have my cuffs with me.”

Her breath caught. She couldn’t respond, couldn’t think straight, her mind focused on Jared’s gentle touch.

He trailed his fingers down her sides and then her legs, slipping one under the edge of her thighs highs. “These will work perfectly.”

In one swift movement, he scooped her up and carried her across the room. She wrapped her hands around his neck, startled by the motion. He laughed. “Afraid I’m going to drop you?”

“No.” She loosened her grip. “You caught me by surprise.”

He nestled his face into her neck, licking and sucking her sensitive skin. And as fast as he’d picked her up, Jared set her down in the cushioned leather chair. With a deep breath, she braced for his next move. The wicked smile on his face sent warmth straight to her core. Was she ready for what he had planned?

Jared fingered the edges of her stockings before rolling both down her legs, his touch like fire on her skin. “Are you sure this is what you want?” Clasping her wrists to the arms of the chair, he drew his tongue along her inner thigh, straight toward her pussy.

“Yes,” she moaned, moisture flooding her already wet panties. “Oh God, yes.”

“Good.” He shifted her to the edge of the chair, touching his body.

Leaning forward, she met his mouth, moaning as his tongue played deliciously with hers. Skimming his hands away from her waist, he continued to feed the passion threatening to consume her from their kiss. And then the tightness around her wrists as Jared bound her to the chair. A new rush of excitement washed over her.
She jerked back, struggling to breathe.

“You like being tied up, don’t you?”

“Yes,” she moaned. Even though she had submitted to him, she felt more alive than she ever had in her life.


Sudden Breakaway
a 1Night Stand story

By Jessica E. Subject

Erotic Sci-Fi/Military Romance

Dressed in her black designer suit, Paige Brown recruits men and women for the Space Service. After the end of her marriage, and several failed recruiting missions, she yearns to find a way out of her lifelong contract to live a normal life. To find love again.

Jared Barnes’s life had been flipped upside down by two little kids. When his former Commander’s wife shows up to give him a reprieve, he jumps at the chance for a break, and to visit his former squad. But it is not his buddies he meets in the private suite at a hockey game, instead a woman who has been the star of all of his recent fantasies, fulfills his wildest dreams except the one that binds his heart.

Has Madame Eve made a mistake or can two lonely hearts overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles?


So, what's your favorite hockey team? If you don't watch hockey, what's your favorite sports team?

Amnesia Erotic Romance by Jan Springer


I love reading amnesia erotic romances and if you do too, then Be My Dream Tonight may be a story for you.

Book 3 in my The Desperadoes post-catastrophic erotic romance ménage series, takes place in the Canadian Rockies where some survivors of the Catastrophe have taken refuge.

Solar flares have taken out the world’s electrical grids and disintegrated most of the world’s population. The magnetic field around the Earth has been disturbed bringing a green glow to the night skies.





The temperature has dropped and people have to find ways to keep warm *grin*.

This story is about Eve. Due to a blow to her head, she has amnesia, but suddenly starts remembering three sexy men she had forgotten…



A fiery eruption of solar flares disintegrates most of Earth’s human population, frying electrical grids around the world and thrusting everyone into a cold, harsh land where only the strong survive.

Passionate ménages with the fierce men of the Durango gang have always made Eve Wright’s body hum with sizzling arousal.

Secretly, she loved all three men, that is, until she suffered a head injury and forgot them. Now her memory is returning with a carnal vengeance and she knows of only one way to relieve her sexual frustrations…by returning to the men she once loved.

When Eve shows up at their hideout, Kayne, Riley, and Maddox are pleased she wants them to help her remember what they once shared. Their hot looks, tender touches, and scorching pleasure-pain leave Eve tangled in an erotic storm that threatens to break her heart and give up a gut-wrenching secret.

Post Holiday Blahs ~ Layna Pimentel


I really hope everyone had a smashing Easter. My family and I don't really celebrate this holiday, but the days off did wonders for my soul. The last several weeks had been trying, so catching up on sleep, and getting two books ready, made me a ton better. The blah thing about this holiday is that there's still snow on the ground.

By this time, my crocuses will have bloomed and withered away, making room for my tulips to be the grandest thing ever. Now, not so much. I'm hoping I don't lose any plants in my flower bed as a result from this ridiculous weather.

How did you spend your holiday? Was the weather nice, warm, and full of sunshine?

In other news, I have a new release coming out next month, and in the event you missed the cover reveal here it is:

Like the last three books I have published, this one is another regency novella around 100 pages. I will be posting a blurb and excerpt in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Well, that's it for me today, I hope you all have a lovely week!

Guest Post: Karly Germain and her Hot Canadian #MM Shifters! #StoneColdBeast



Welcome to fellow Canadian romance author, Karly Germain! With three MM releases, she is already a multiple bestselling author. She's here to talk about her paranormal series, The Umbra Shifters with Evernight Publishing. Take it away, Karly!

Hi! Thanks to the wonderful authors at Romance Eh? Canadian Style! for having me today!

I answered a submission call for Evernight Publishing's Alpha's Claim: Manlove Edition, How cool it would be to write about alpha shifters. So I decided to set my story in one of my favorite places, NOVA SCOTIA!

The rugged, wild coastline of the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia was a perfect setting for my wild, rugged MM heroes.

From Wikipedia:  The Eastern Shore is a scenic, yet sparsely settled area, hosting dozens of small fishing harbours and communities; in recent decades the region has become home to a growing number of cottages and recreational properties, given the amount of unspoiled sand beaches and dramatic coastlines. The shore also hosts the majority of Nova Scotia's small islands.



What a great place to set my story, I especially used this area for Book #2 of The Umbra Shifters, STONE COLD BEAST. One of my favorite beaches of Nova Scotia is on the Eastern Shore, CLAM HARBOUR BEACH.

Look at that expanse of sand and rolling waves. perfect. Lots of fond memories, even got the worst sunburn of my life there! Good times!  lol~

It is a real kick to set your stories in areas you are familiar with or have visited at one time or another. It enriches the writing experience for me personally.

In Stone Cold Beast, my hero, Ethan Stone is a scarred loner (and a lion shifter) and lives not far from a beach such as this.

I recommend Nova Scotia as a great place to visit AND set your book! And no, its not as cold as the Brad Pitt movie World War Z would have you believe. ;) At the end of the movie, Pitt arrives at a refuge camp in Nova Scotia wearing a parka in summer. *rolls eyes* In fact, Nova Scotia is one of the warmer provinces in Canada.

So check out my newest release, STONE COLD BEAST!


STONE COLD BEAST by Karly Germain
 #2 in The Umbra Shifters
Blurb:

The Umbra Shifters, 2
Ethan Stone, lion shifter, had lived many lives. He’d been a biker, musician, and an Umbran, or shadow hunter. Everything changed two years ago when a nightclub fire killed the members of his rock band and left him the only survivor. Now scarred and living the solitary life of a nomad, Ethan just wants to be left alone in his isolated world.
Daric McNamee, a cheetah shifter and also an Umbran, has been given an assignment. Ethan Stone. Find out what happened the night of the fire and recruit Stone back into the Umbran. Not an easy task considering Ethan is stubborn and wary. Almost immediately, both men feel a mate connection, but the last thing Daric wants is to be a submissive to a scarred, terminally angry lion shifter.
However, the attraction between them can’t be denied—though Ethan tries. When it comes time for them to part, will they admit they are mates? Can Daric convince Ethan he is more than a stone cold beast?
Be Warned: m/m sex

More Fun Facts - Canada's North, it's not just all snow by Jessica E. Subject

Hello peeps! It's finally Spring here in Canada! Yay! Although meteorologists are calling for colder temps and that yucky white stuff overnight and into tomorrow. *cringe* Anyway, it's just one day. I'll get through it.

At the end of March, Kacey shared with you some fun facts about Canada. Well, I'm here to share more, but I'm focusing on Northern Canada today. Why? Well, it has to do with my most recent release under my other name, Paisley Brown.



1. Baffin Island, located in Nunavut, is the largest island in Canada and the fifth largest island in the world at 195,928 sq mi (507,451 km²) in size.

2. In the winter, the Dempster Highway (Dawson City, Yukon to Inuvik, Northwest Territories) extends another 194 km to Tuktoyaktuk when portions of the Mackenzie Delta freeze over.

3. Canada's highest point (5959m ~ 19541ft) is Mount Logan, located in Kluane National Park in the southwestern part of the Yukon.

4. There are eight officially recognized languages of the Northwest Territories: English, French, Inuktitut, Cree, Dogrib, Gwich'in, Chipewyan, and Slavey. Citizens of the Northwest Territories have a right to any of the above languages when receiving services from the government, in court, and in proceedings involving legislature.

5. The DEW Line or "Distant Early Warning Line", was a system of radars that were spread across the Arctic portion of Canada. These were used to detect missiles and Soviet bombers, however, when intercontinental ballistic missiles became the main delivery system for nuclear weapons, these radars became outdated. Since the end of the Cold War in 1990, these stations are rarely used for any significant purpose.

6. Alert, located at 82 degrees 28'N, 62 degrees 30'W, is the northernmost permanent settlement in the world. It is located on the Northeastern tip of Ellesmere Island in the territory of Nunavut.

7. Nunavut became Canada's third territory on April 1, 1999. It is the largest territory and makes up one fifth of the Canada's land mass.

8. Snag, Yukon holds the record for the coldest temperature ever recorded in Canada -63 degrees Celsius (-81F). This was recorded on February 3, 1957.

9. The largest non-polar ice field in the world can be found in the St. Elias Mountains, Yukon Territory. It covers an area of 40 570 square kilometers of which 16,900 square kilometers are located in Canada, the remainder being in Alaska.

10. Two of the largest lakes in the world are found in the Northwest Territories – Great Bear Lake and Great Slave Lake.



Although my latest release doesn't take place in Northern Canada, it does take place above the Arctic Circle, where the Aurora Borealis are beautiful.

Greetings from spring-like Canada!

Last time we talked about Book 1 "The Pleasure Girl" in my post-catastrophic ménage erotic romance series the Desperadoes. This time I'll give you a peek at Book 2 “In Her Bed”.
 
"In Her Bed" takes place in the Canadian Rocky Mountains where some people have taken refuge after the Catastrophe.
The Desperadoes series got me to thinking about how people would survive if something Catastrophic happened. Some of us got a taste of survival during the December 2013 Ice Storms in Canada and the US and we endured day(s) without electricity.
In that kind of situation your thinking starts to change (at least mine did). You start questioning yourself as to how long will this life without electricity last? Where will I get food when all the trees are covering the roads and I can't drive or walk because it is too icy? How will I heat my house? What will I have to do to survive?
In the story “In Her Bed” the Catastrophe actually frees a woman to act out on her naughty fantasies because there is no one left to judge her...

Here’s a peek at “In Her Bed”:

(Erotic Romance, BDSM,  Menage a Trois/Quatre, Science Fiction)
Book Length: Novel

A fiery eruption of solar flares disintegrates much of the world’s population, fries electrical grids, and throws Earth back into the dark ages. Now, it’s a cold, brutal land where only the strong survive.

Before the Catastrophe, Dr. Elizabeth Brandywine would never have dreamed of actually surrendering to her wicked needs of being bound, dominated, and shared, but now there’s no one left alive to judge her, except herself.

Ethan Durango knows sweet, uptight, sexy Dr. Liz is ready to submit to her secret sexual needs. He’s always wanted to share her. To have her tied up while he and his friends take her. Ethan, Landon, and Tyrell will enjoy seducing Liz past her boundaries until she submits to her naughtiest desires.

(Ménage Amour: Erotic Futuristic Sci-Fi Ménage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, BDSM, sex toys)

Formats: Siren BookStrand | Nook | Nook UK KOBO | ibooks | Google Play | Kindle

Next time we’ll get a peek at Book 3 – The Desperadoes series - “Be My Dream Tonight”.

Happy Reading!

Author Note:

I'd also like to extend my sympathies regarding the passing of The Honourable Jim Flaherty, former Finance Minister of Canada. RIP Jim Flaherty

Bitten, a SyFy Paranormal Must-Watch Show

You might wonder what Bitten (an awesome show about werewolves) has to do with Canada. Would it surprise you if I said everything.

First, let's start with the author. Kelley Armstrong; she's a New York Times #1 bestselling author who is also CANADIAN! Can I hear a fucking eh?! I think it is ridiculously awesome that an Ontario writer achieved that distinction. Even better, she's prolific so for those that love to gulp down series, check out her site, she's got plenty of books to choose from.



Next cool thing, is the TV show, Bitten(which plays on SyFY), is filmed in part and based in Toronto, Ontario. Can you get more Canadian than that? I love seeing Canadian locations in shows I watch. It makes me and hubby so excited to see landmarks and streets we recognize, lol. It adds that level of reality to the show.



Third neat fact, Elena, the main character, is a Canadian actress. Laura Vandervoort is a Toronto girl who first became popular from her role on Smallville.



I'd love it if one of my series got made into a television series, although, can you imagine if they chose my Pack books? I wonder if Canadian viewers are ready for my kind of werewolves. After all, Pack Law states females must mate with at least two. Hehehe. And for those who aren't familiar with my Pack series, what are you waiting for?! Book 4, New Pack Order is coming May 11th.

An action and drama filled series following a pack of Lycans who cling to the past and its rules, while others are determined to reshape them. This series is best read in order to fully grasp the unfolding events.

Could spring is actually here? If not, how something hot from A Sinful Education ~ Layna Pimentel


Old man winter, screw you!

Soon, my backyard will be devoid of you, and will in turn become a swamp. In the meanwhile, how about I warm us up with a little something something from the second book in my Pleasure Garden Follies series which will go on tour this Monday. Be sure to check my blog on Monday for all the details. Without further ado, here's a lovely sampling from A Sinful Education.


Emily lay in wait for the old grandfather clock to chime twelve bells on the main floor of the manor. While Stoughton Hall was magnificent in size, the clock could be heard from any of the three floors, no matter from what room.

The house had been in a flurry getting the children ready for bed and her brother whisking his wife away for the evening. Even his lordship had retired early into his chambers at the end of this wing. She had quietly followed earlier to learn where she would find him and carry on their discussion from earlier.

Thoughts of her scandalous questions and her mind wandering to what a nude Lord Avonlea looked like, suddenly stirred an unfamiliar feeling in her belly. Dampness settled between her thighs. Even her nipples had stiffened to hard peaks beneath her cotton shift.

How would he perceive her after tonight? Would he deem her the most incorrigible female ever bestowed upon London? Or, would he call her a minx and throw her out of his room? Her only desire was to learn, to educate herself in the ways of pleasure for when her time came to be a wife. To become a wife in name was not an option, nor did she want to play second fiddle to another woman. Yet, the truth be told, Emily desired to get closer with the earl.

Suddenly, the image forever engrained upon her mind of a woman’s mouth wrapped around a manhood seemed more of a challenge. The kind of challenge that would certainly scandalize any respectable female. 

But she desired to know the intricacies of said intimate moments. Perhaps Charles would find it as pleasurable. Emily shook her head and pulled off her covers.

She rose from the bed and put on her slippers and robe. Using the utmost discretion, she opted to leave behind the candlestick and left her room in the dark, knowing all too well it was only the two of them in this side of the house.

Emily gently closed her chamber door and swept down the hall, pausing outside of his room. The glow of the fireplace danced across the floor under the door, but all was silent. Perhaps he was reading from the privacy of the curtained platform bed or standing in the window, basking in the view the west side of the manor offered.

She quietly opened his door and closed it behind her.

No one stirred, nor made a sound.

She took a step forward, parting her lips to call for him.

A soft moan caught her attention and uncertainty crept up her spine. She should not have proceeded, but went on to appease her curiosity. Stealing further into the room, she paused in the corner.

She caught sight of his lordship through the break of the curtains. Charles' eyes were closed, chest exposed as his hand moved beneath the sheet barely covering his waist. Lord, he’s a sight to watch, but what exactly is he doing?

Emily moved closer, but could not make head or tails of his motions. That is, until he called out, “Emily.”

~*~

Can we all guess what Charles was doing? ;-)
