Guest Post and Giveaway with Author D. B. Reynolds

Please welcome D. B. Reynolds to Bitten By Paranormal Romance!

Someone asked me the other day if my books were for teens or adults. No doubt about it, I write my books for adult readers, since there is explicit sex and violence in all of them. But the stories aren’t only about the sex and violence. My characters are all adults, not just in age, but in experience. Adults know the world goes on, that you have to find a way to live with the reality of losing your job, or not getting that promotion, of discovering someone you love doesn’t love you anymore, or, even worse, losing someone you love to the immutable force that is death. Tragedy isn’t that the world will end. Tragedy is living with the knowledge that it won’t.

My characters, human and vampire, have all seen what a crap place the world can sometimes be and soldiered on. And none of my vampires started out as the powerful Vampire Lords they are now. They each clawed their way to the top of the pile, some of them surviving personal tragedy, others a predatory Sire they had to destroy in order to find freedom. And there were always plenty of vampires far stronger than they were at the beginning of their new lives, too. Sometimes they were forced to submit, sometimes to fight in order to stay alive, but always they were determined that one day they would be the one on top, the one other vampires looked to for life itself. 

And that’s why I write for adults, not just for the hot sex scenes, or even the glee my vampires take in hunting down and torturing their enemies, although I love writing each and every one of those scenes! But because I’m interested in the adult experience, the decisions and compromises they're forced to make and the consequences they live with, the strength of emotions forged in fire.

My newest Vampire Lord, Lucas, was forsaken by his family, his teenaged mother cast out with her baby to live and die on the streets of Kildare, Ireland, leaving Lucas to survive on his own while still a child. But despite all of that, Lucas is a joyous character and so much fun to write. He’s completely without boundaries and finds such delight in life. Whether it’s tormenting a vampire who betrayed him, or making love to Kathryn, he does it with gusto. 

So, here’s a sexy little taste of my new favorite vampire, Lucas. 

Excerpt:  for Mature Audiences Only

Lucas snarled and grabbed her around the waist, shoving her against the tiled wall and holding her there with his body. “I am not a man at all. You should remember that.”

Kathryn grinned, then licked a drop of water from his chin. “You sure act like one sometimes.” She rubbed her foot up the back of his calf and his cock hardened instantly. “Unfortunately, I don’t believe we have time to act on that,” she murmured.

Lucas bared his teeth and tightened his grip around her, lifting her until his cock was nestled in the soft triangle between her thighs. “There’s always time,” he growled and pushed into her wet heat, thrusting forward until his shaft was fully seated, their bodies skin to skin in the steamy shower. 

Kathryn gasped at the unexpected intrusion. Her head fell back and her eyes closed, the big vein in her neck straining with the sudden rush of blood, almost begging to be tapped. Lucas bent close, licking and tasting her lips, her jawline, dipping his tongue into her ear before running it roughly over her plump jugular. The leg she’d been rubbing along the back of his calf was now clamped around his hips, pumping gently as she encouraged him to get closer … and to move. Lucas grinned and began fucking her, thrusting steadily in and out as he squeezed the firm globes of her perfect ass. 

“You don’t play fair,” she breathed as she gripped his shoulders, flexing the muscles of her butt as she thrust against him. 

“Fuck fair,” he whispered against her ear, then dropped his lips to the delicate skin of her neck and sank his fangs into her honey-sweet vein.

Kathryn jolted when the euphoric in his bite hit her bloodstream, her muscles clenched in anticipation of the coming orgasm. A full-body shudder rippled from head to toe, her leg scissoring around his hips, holding him inside her as the tiny muscles of her sheath trembled along his shaft. Kathryn cried out suddenly, nails digging into his shoulders as her body tightened around him like a warm, wet glove. Her cry became a keening wail as the orgasm swept over her and she began pumping against him furiously trying to ease the ache. Lucas lifted his mouth from her neck and licked the twin puncture wounds. He would have liked to take her back to bed, to have wrung every last bit of climax from her trembling body before seeking his own. Remind her of the pleasure he could give her over and over again, and let her try to find a human lover who could match it. Or another vampire who would dare touch her. She was his, or she was no one’s. But there wasn’t enough time.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
