A Marine for Selah by Marteeka and Shara


A Marine for Selah

by Marteeka Karland and Shara Azod

Selah Gooding has devoted her life to being the consummate good girl, never willing to disappoint her mother or send the tongues residing in their small Oklahoma town wagging. Her mother's diner, church meetings, and a very unsociable lifestyle have all become the things that make up Selah's day to day routine. At least until she finds herself ensnared in the magnetic pull of one extremely charming, extremely gorgeous Marine. Now Selah has to make a choice. Continue to be a consummate good girl...or admit that every now and again it’s okay to be bad. Particularly when you have the soldier of your dreams backing that decision...

EXCERPT!

It took little time to arrive at his home just off base. Once there, he helped Selah inside and urged to sit on the couch. She seemed to look everywhere but at him. Obviously she was either embarrassed or hurt. Probably both. He was a Marine, damn it--he should be able to adapt and overcome. Only dealing with things like this was so outside his realm of expertise, it wasn’t even funny. What was he supposed to do? What did he say to make it better?

When a single tear slid down her cheek and she tried to hide it by ducking her head to brush it away with the back of a finger, he was lost. Justice caught her chin gently and turned her face up to his, leaning in to kiss her. The salty tang hit him like a punch to the gut. He vowed then and there his Selah would never cry over her mother again. If he’d been the type of man who hit women, he’d have happily throttled the old biddy. All he could do now was make good and sure Selah didn’t ever have to face the bitter, over-opinionated woman ever again.

Gradually, she relaxed under his touch. Justice meant to end the kiss there--he really did--but found once he’d started there was no stopping. She tasted too damned good to stop. It felt too right to stop. With a sigh, Selah slipped her arms around his neck, whimpering against his lips. Never was there a sweeter sound. Never did anything taste so...perfect. Lips like the sweetest honey, skin so soft all he could think about was wrapping her up in satin just to compare the two sensations. Justice knew he had completely fallen. This was the one. She was the one. After living for so long, seeing so much, he had never thought to experience anything like this. But he had to slow this down. Selah wasn’t the type of woman to simply fall into bed on a whim. He had to give her a reason. A reason to fall into his bed and his life.

Frankly, he didn’t want her in his bed tonight. Hell, yeah, he wanted her. Right now there was no room in his crotch for anything but flesh and denim. Not even air was getting between the way his dick was pressed against his pants. But that was physical. He wanted so much more with Selah. What he needed was her complete trust. The only way they were going to start sleeping together was if he earned her devotion, and he just hadn’t done that yet. Selah deserved to be certain once he took her into his bed, cause she damn sure wasn’t coming out of it.

Reluctantly, Justice broke the kiss, pressing his forehead to hers. To his vast relief, she was breathing as hard as he was. That was a great start; knowing she was attracted to him. Still, he wanted more.

“I’m sorry, Selah. That was rude and ungentlemanly of me.”

“Don’t be sorry,” she breathed. “I’m not.” Despite her air of innocence, despite knowing without a doubt she was innocent, Selah had a sensual grace that made his eyes roll back in his head, his resolve to keep his intentions honorable fly out the window.

“Look,” he said, running a hand through his hair as he sat back, trying to gather his wits. “I’d want you to stay here tonight.” He raised his hands when she opened her mouth to speak. “Despite my horrible manners, I’m offering this with no expectations attached. Just a place for you to stay and feel safe. I swear to you, I won’t make a move on you.” When she raised one delicately arched eyebrow at him, he added, “Any more.

A Start to the Vacation...



So, we get here. (Wilderness at the Smokies... again.) It's like 4pm when we get here to check in. First up, we have a ground floor -- as requested -- but not a room facing the pool. Bummer. All the way here, the sun is blaring, it's like 90 degrees, PERFECT water park weather. Right? Thirty minutes after we get here, it clouds up. Thirty minutes after that, it opens up and.. pair 'em up Noah one more time. So it's now 6:30. Raining. And I'm not in the sun. Anyone else see a fucking problem here?????

OH! And John? My lovely, attentive Cabana Boy from last time? Is working cabana's 1-3 tomorrow. I"m in 7. HEADDESK. Now I have to come up with another gimmick for tomorrows contest. Was going to be "Read A Book, Send A Cabana Boy To College," now I have no fucking idea.

*sigh*

More later. I'm going to sit on the porch and watch it rain...

Take a walk on the WILD SIDE of Marteeka!

Yeah, I'm a little pervert. :) I decided to try a little something new. Any books under this name you can expect to be... different... from anything else I write. I've been lumped in with a talented, yet perverted, bunch of ladies (and men) and I couldn't be happier.

Check out my two releases from Wet Dream Fantasies!

Babysitter Tansy has plans for her boss. She wants him and she's prepared to do anything to get him...

Babysitter's Behaving Badly 2: Ravishing Raven


How much temptation was Stone supposed to take? Raven came to his home, supposed to watch his son, but she look'd like what she was really after was to catch herself a full grown man. What kind of man would he be to say no?

New from Marteeka Karland and Shara Azod...



A Marine for Selah

Selah Gooding has devoted her life to being the consummate good girl, never willing to disappoint her mother or send the tongues residing in their small Oklahoma town wagging. Her mother's diner, church meetings, and a very unsociable lifestyle have all become the things that make up Selah's day to day routine. At least until she finds herself ensnared in the magnetic pull of one extremely charming, extremely gorgeous Marine. Now Selah has to make a choice. Continue to be a consummate good girl...or admit that every now and again it’s okay to be bad. Particularly when you have the soldier of your dreams backing that decision...

EXCERPT!

Once inside, the door securely locked, Justice rested his head on the cool wood, trying to get a handle on his raging libido. Maybe prolonging the anticipation hadn't been the best idea he’d ever had. The entirety of his body hurt with wanting her. But he knew he had to take this slow.
“Justice?” The soft, sweet music of Selah’s voice called to him, wrapped around his heart and squeezed. “Is everything all right?”
“Perfect, Selah.” He faced her, unable to stop his gaze from devouring the sight of her. “Absolutely perfect.”
With deliberate slowness, she moved toward him, her hips swaying with every step. “I wanted to be cool about this, but I’m not a very good seductress. You’re going to have to help me a little.”
Swallowing, Justice sagged against the door. He was so fucked. “Tell me what you need, Selah,” he whispered. “I’ll give you anything.”
She reached him, placing her hands on his chest and running her palms over the wide expanse, her gaze following her hands. “I need you to make love to me. I want to know what it’s like to have a man like you, even if it’s only for this one night.” She met his gaze then, uncertainty in her eyes. Justice knew it wasn't uncertainty about the act, but about how he’d take her request.
“You know you can do better than me, right?”
She blinked rapidly several times before answering. “I don’t want to do better than you. I just...” She swallowed. “I just want you.”

Coming Soon... Illicit Sex




Illicit Sex

by Marteeka Karland


Past relationships have made Lyra more than a little wary of men. True, her jaunt into the arms of an alien was her idea, but somehow the reality of the deed is more than she bargained for. As a result, she does everything in her power to drive her newly acquired “sponsor” away. Unfortunately, during a battle with mercenaries bent on taking control of Lunar Colony 1, she is captured and subjected to mental tortures that nearly drive her insane.

Kil may not like the little witch his Chosen presents herself as, but he’s drawn to her like no other woman. When she’s taken from him, when he realizes exactly what species has her, Kil vows to himself he will get her back. No matter what. But winning her affections is only one obstacle.

Now Kil has to save his brother and protect LC1 from invasion while saving Lyra’s sanity, winning the trust of a woman who trusts no one.

EXCERPT!



After she’d fought like a seasoned warrior, protecting both herself and Gabrielle, Kil had been so angry with her he’d wanted to turn her over his knee and spank her until that pretty, pale ass glowed with his smacks. He was also so fucking hard he’d nearly spilled himself before they’d made it to their rooms.

She hadn’t been partial to being tossed over his shoulder as he’d carried her away from danger. In fact, she’d fought just as hard against him as she had the mercs. When he finally set her on her feet, she struck out at him, but he caught her wild, swinging arm. There was a moment when their gazes locked, and he recognized bloodlust in her eyes. Then she launched herself into his arms, fusing her mouth to his. Apparently, humans and Cluath had something in common after all. Kil could hardly keep his own lust for the woman in check. Once he knew she couldn’t contain her own passion either, he didn’t have to.

He’d barely gotten them inside before he returned her furious kiss. He slammed her against the wall, urging her leg over his hip as he fitted his cock against the apex of her thighs. They were fully dressed, the barrier of their clothing maddening Kil until he managed to tug off his own clothing. She removed hers even faster, pulling the last of his from his body in a frenzy.

Lyra was the one to shove him to the bed and straddle his face. Kil gladly tongued her sex, groaning as the flavor of her exploded on his tongue. She shrieked her pleasure, grinding down on him until the last shudder had faded. When he dragged her down his body, grasping her hips and pulling her effortlessly down the length of him, she settled over his cock with an eagerness that mirrored his own.

He fucked her hard and fast, driving up into her in a frenzy. The bouncing of her small breasts was enough to make his cock ache and pulse inside her. Lyra sat upright on him, holding herself above him on her bent knees, letting him pound into her to his heart’s content.

When he’d exploded inside her, he made sure she followed, finding her clit with his thumb and stroking until her cunt grasped his cock in ever-increasing spasms, milking him of every last drop of seed. In that moment, Kil knew he’d left a piece of his heart inside her along with his cum.

She collapsed over him then, breathing as hard as he was, stopping short of clutching his shoulders. Still, her fingers kneaded the muscles of his arms as if she couldn’t help herself.

Kil rolled them over so he lay on top of her, his fingers delving into all that lustrous hair, tilting her head to receive his kiss. After the initial urgency was relieved, he wanted to show her tender pleasure, show her he was capable of complete, thorough lovemaking.

But she shoved him off her, rolling off the bed and stalking to the bathroom. Not once did she look back. Didn’t even acknowledge him. Then Worr called him to help rescue his own Chosen.

The Prefect's Baby

The Prefect's Baby

by Marteeka Karland

When Astra meets a mysterious, handsome stranger at a ball in honor of her father’s honored guests, she lives in the moment. A lifetime of sheltering makes her reckless. The sexy stranger makes her long for something... more.

Unfortunately “more” leaves her in a delicate condition. And her handsome stranger turns out to be the very Prefect her father needs an alliance with.

Galen is taken with the beautiful daughter of the king. The alliance he came to form with this planet could rest with his ability to control his wayward feelings. Astra’s pull, however, is more than he wants to resist.

Now he just has to convince her family he’s the one for her...

EXCERPT!

Astra’s heart pounded, the intimate feeling unfamiliar but not unwelcome. The combined scents of the thick carpet of grasses under the coverlet, the night blooming wildflowers, and fresh sea air mingled with the wild, woodsy scent of the man with her were potent. She’d never been so drawn to a man. It was terrifying, yet exhilarating.
They lay there for a long while, Astra pointing out her favorite sights. The nearby nebula seemed to paint the sky in brilliant reds, blues, and purples. Why she kept talking to this man, this stranger, like she’d known him all her life, she didn’t know, but he seemed genuinely interested in the sights she showed him, asking questions and sharing his favorites with her.
A meteor streaked across the sky, followed closely by another. Then several more until the sky seemed dotted with shooting stars. With the colorful background of the nebula and the thin slivers of Stratan’s two moons as a backdrop, the sight was unexpectedly beautiful.
Astra’s breath caught. Several times a year, the skies opened up like this and showed off in a spectacular display. With this gorgeous man at her side, holding her as if they lay together like this every night watching the sky, the scene seemed amazingly intimate.
“Beautiful...” His voice was husky, low, a thread of something woven into the deep timbre of sound. When she turned to look at him, he wasn’t looking at the sky.
Then she was falling into him, seeking his lips with hers. He didn’t move, but she couldn’t seem to stop. At the first touch of his mouth on hers, Astra whimpered, trembling uncontrollably. Something inside her stretched, waking from a long slumber.
She lay half over him, kissing him tentatively, loving the feel of his lips moving under hers. His arms closed securely around her, but other than that, he let her lead the pace. Astra was grateful because this was the longest she’d ever been alone with a man not her relative. Overprotective men in her family made sure she was never alone with a man long enough for anything to happen. She was a princess, after all. She was expected to abstain from sex until she had committed her life to a proper match.
Most prospective mates wouldn’t care one way or the other, but there were a handful who would expect her to be untouched when she came to their wedding bed. One thing she knew for sure--after tonight, she would not be a virgin. She was giving herself to this man, for good or ill. The thing was, she couldn’t find it in herself to regret her decision. No guilt gnawed at her, no hesitation, other than her lack of experience, seized her. She wanted this with everything woman inside her.
“Are you sure this is what you want?” he asked gently, still kissing her between words. Astra whimpered, her need great, her body tingling and pulsing with every beat of her heart.
“I do,” she managed. “More than I’ve ever wanted anything in my life.” Her answer was more truthful than she’d have liked to admit, but there was no way to filter her responses. Her body had tuned itself to his and she didn’t even know his name.
She desperately wanted to ask, but doing so would mean she’d have to admit her name, and anyone would be able to figure out her royal heritage after that. Instead, she concentrated on pulling at his clothes, trying to get to warm skin.
He helped her remove her own clothing before rolling them over so she was beneath him. Astra thought he’d simply take her then, but she was oh, so very wrong. This man was definitely an expert at pleasuring a woman. There wasn’t an inch of her skin he didn’t claim. Even to the point of turning her on her stomach to let his lips roam over her back and buttocks before finally pulling her to her knees and nuzzling her cunt with his mouth.
Astra screamed, unable to check her responses. The sensation was somewhere between pleasure and tickling, his chin and cheeks, rough with stubble, scruffing over her tender skin. She arched her back instinctively, needing him to stop, not to stop. She wasn’t sure. All she knew was this was the most intense experience of her life, and they hadn’t even really done anything.

Beautiful Trouble Publishing Greet and Eat

First of all, let me start off by saying, it's all in good fun until SOMEONE whips out the the Trident dildo. That's all I'm saying about that.

I began the morning by oversleeping. Crazy, I know. I'm always on time. I blame the alcohol the night before, but in my defense, I didn't have NEARLY as much as Shara and I actually remember stumbling to bed. Nuff said.

I learned to "beware the black vagina." I learned that Billy London sounds exceedingly sexy when she says "pussy."

I can't dance. Did I mention that?

There is a line. No one told me and my face was red. Then Shara pointed out that, "that's when I tell you to back the fuck off!" Then I remembered and the light came on. (However, I WOULD like to point out that erotica can be just as sensual as erotic romance... AND more fun to write. Just saying.)

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I always end up in a sex toy shop? I really need to figure that one out. What? It's a valid question!

Erotic romance really IS sexier if read by a male. Especially when his wife tells him TIME!!!

Oh! And just in case anyone needs this information? Jeanie Johnson... likes to fuck.

One thing is for sure. You throw that many liberated women into one room and sparks will fly. Fortunately, the Grand Hyatt is still standing. Though there is a bar tender who might  never be the same...

Look out Austin, TX... the girls are on the way...
