Excerpt from Spanish Nights by Valerie Twombly

Makayla had been positive Armand was going to kiss her. Instead he’d set her

aside and almost seemed angry that she had trusted him. Their ride back to the

mainland had been quiet and almost tense. What had caused the sudden change? The

kiss on the cheek? Everything had certainly gone to hell after that, but she could have

sworn he wanted her.

She brushed the hair from her face. What did she know about men anyway? It

had been two years since her last relationship and it had failed. She had failed. The

entire idea was a mistake and she should just chalk it up to a lesson learned and move

on. Tears stung her eyes. She thought she saw something good and decent in Armand.

Even if only for a one-night stand, she thought he would have catered to her every

need, giving her something her past relationships always lacked. Maybe she should

just hire the deed done. Women did it all the time now and why not? Their sexual

urges were the same as a man’s, only the rules were different.

Half an hour later, they were back at the dock and Armand helped her off the

boat.

“I’ll escort you home.”

Really? She pursed her lips. “I’m sure you have lots to do. I can see myself

home. Thank you again for a nice day.” She spun and started to walk away, but he

was on her heels.

“I wasn’t asking.” He moved in beside her.

Kayla kept her gaze ahead. She could feel the heat rising up her neck. “Suit

yourself.” If he wanted to walk with her then fine, but she refused to converse with

him. The mixed signals he kept sending were making her dizzy. He went from

seductive to demanding to angry with god-knows-what. The confusion running

through her brain gave her a headache.

Ten silent minutes later, she finally reached her front door. She slipped the key

into the lock and turned the handle. The door opened to reveal a darkened room and

she could hardly wait to escape back into it. She wondered if the entire trip was a

waste. Good manners had her turning around to face the sexy man who’d towered

beside her all day.

“Thank you again. It was lovely.”

His hands gripped her upper arms and his body pinned her against the

doorjamb. His lips crashed down on hers. Bruising. Demanding. His tongue pushed

passed and swept into her mouth. He tasted of danger and sin and she wanted to

swallow him whole. Every lean hard muscle of his chest pushed into her breasts

causing them to ache. Her nipples pebbled against her bathing suit and begged to

have his hot tongue glide across them. His erection, thick and hard, pressed into her

belly. She wanted to touch him, but with her arms pinned at her side she could do

nothing except remind herself to breathe.

He consumed her.

Armand nipped her bottom lip then pulled away causing her to moan. Even in

the dusk of the evening, she could see the desire in his eyes. It burned her soul.

“Querida, never trust a strange man again. I will be your one exception,” he

whispered. “Do you understand?”

She swallowed. Her throat parched from the inferno brewing inside her like a

wicked storm. “Y-Yes.”

“Good.” He released her then backed away. “Go inside now. I’ll pick you up

tomorrow evening for dinner.”

“O-Okay.”

Kayla stepped past the entry and closed the door behind her. She leaned against

the cool wood both to quench the fire that raged within and for support. She brought

her fingers to her swollen lips and could almost feel him still pressing against her.

“What the hell just happened?”

Her legs were like Jell-O and her heart raced. She hadn’t expected him to kiss

her. Not after the way things had ended. Even in her surprise, her body couldn’t help

but respond. She had never been kissed like that before. It had been raw. His heat had

seeped through her skin igniting something deep inside her.

“So that’s what it’s like? Holy hell.” She pushed herself off the door and walked

across the living room on wobbly legs. She needed a cold shower. Ice cold to be

exact.

Love Least Expected – Kishan Paul :)

LLE_240px

Taking-The-Plunge_Slider_1600-745px
Since graduating high school, Eve Cambridge has dropped ten dress sizes, became an RN, and dumped her jerk of a boyfriend – all on her own. So when her high school crush shows up in her life, she does what any normal self-reliant woman would do — pepper spray him.

Since inheriting the family plumbing business, Peter Russo has tried to make the best of a career he never planned for. He’s made his share of mistakes, but he’s worked hard to learn from them. Now that he’s run into Eve, he’s not so sure he isn’t making another one. After all, she did almost blind him.

When logic and emotion don’t agree, which path should they follow?

Praise for Kishan Paul:

 Taking the Plunge by Kishan Paul….Eve Cambridge had a difficult childhood, always being made fun of in school. Then one day the boy of her dreams comes to her aid. Fast forward, Eve is now an RN and just dumped her jerk of a boyfriend. When she runs into the boy she once had crush on from her HS years, is now a tall, sexy handsome man now. Will Eve take a chance and try to find love with the sexy plumber? This was the fist story by this author I’ve ever read and she truly did a wonderful job and can’t wait to read the rest of this great love story. — Vettech

“Taking the Plunge by Kishan Paul – This story WOWed me. I was drawn into the story and it brought back some bad and good memories. I was able to relate to Eve, Christian, and Pete on so many levels. Eve has a heart of gold even with being protective of her heart and those she holds dear. Christian is very strong even though he doesn’t see it himself. Pete is funny, cocky, and loving even through all that he has been through. Kishan Paul really made this story pop out at me and hold me every step of the way. Can’t wait to read more of these characters.” — Bobbie Kinion

“If I thought Love’s Not Viral was something I could relate to, Taking the Plunge is the second half of my life. This is a must read for many women who feel they are not good enough and struggle to find a place to fit in. What she went though with her brother is something I had to struggle with too. I give this book five bloody hearts and a high five to Kishan Paul.”  — Dark Side of Romance

This is a story about realistic characters that have flaws, wear sweatpants, and burn dinner. While it is sad that the characters had to endure a sad past, seeing Pete and Eve overcome their issues is inspirational and perfect for a feel-good story. Taking the Plunge has that rare perfect blend of humor, emotion, and sexiness. It’s a perfect read to lift your spirits.” — Kelly Lincoln

Kishan Paul creates sizzling sexual tension while building a relationship between two conflicted souls. It’s funny, touching, and REAL all at the same time. Once you turn the final page, you’ll definitely want more after reading this short story!”— Heather Rawlings

 

Taking the Plunge is lighthearted and funny with a touch of spice. Kishan will leave you wanting more.”– Jena Baxter, author of Reflections

 

“How this author is able to hook you from the start and have you craving more from page one is amazing. By the time you’re done reading this short, you’ll feel like you’ve read a novel, seriously, she’s that good.” — Kristen Sanchez

TAKING THE PLUNGE EXCERPT

Pete sat on the toilet and wiped his face with the towel she handed him. He cleared his sore throat. “Thank you,”

Evie grabbed his towel and dried her hands. “For what? Almost blinding you?”

He eyed the strands of her hair hanging in loose curls against her tanned cheeks and itched to tuck them behind her ears. But after the last twenty minutes of misery, thought better of it.

As if reading his thoughts, her cheeks flushed. She pushed the loose locks out of her face and stared at her toes. Damn she looked cute.

I’m sorry I sprayed you.”

Pete chuckled. “I showed up unannounced, waving a baseball bat. I think I kind of deserved it.”

When Evie smiled, something fluttered in his stomach.

She bit her lip, obviously to keep from laughing. “Nice bat, by the way.”

How the hell had he not met her until now?

Before he got the chance to tell her just how nice his bat was, his butt started vibrating.

Pete reached into his back pocket, pulled out the cell and looked at the screen. “Your uncle.”

Her eyes widened. “Crap. He thinks I already left. Don’t tell him I’m here.” She turned and headed for the hall.

Hold up.” Pete grabbed her arm with one hand while hitting the ignore button on the cell with the other. “Have dinner with me and I won’t.” He decided to play his cards and omit the part about how her uncle already knew she was still at the house.

She stared at the wrist he currently possessed. “You know, I still have the pepper spray.”

The cell buzzed a second time. Pete shrugged and kept a grip on her wrist. “I’ll take my chances.”

Spanish Nights, A Jinn’s Seduction
Release Date: September 24, 2014
Publisher: Valerie Twombly
Paranormal Romance

After a bitter divorce from her cheating husband, Makayla searches for her muse in the remote hills of Spain. When she flings open the door of her villa, she finds it in the form of intense blue eyes and a killer body attached to a thick Spanish accent.

Armand has lost everything. His magic and his freedom are taken when an evil curse is placed on the Jinn, bounding him to earth. With only his immortality and ability for seduction, he sets his sights on the dark haired newcomer in town.

What begins as desire in the steamy nights of Spain, quickly leads to something more meaningful. However, when evil emerges from the shadows, Makayla learns she must choose between her mortality and Armand’s freedom.

About the Author

Valerie-Twombly_300px

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying, “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she was hooked.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
