Amanda J. GreeneBook: Surrender to the Chase Release Date: December 2014 Publisher: self-published
Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season. I’d like to thank the fantastic women who worked hard to coordinate and host the Mistletoe Madness.
My recent winter release, Surrender to the Chase (Under Realm Assassins, #2) is not holiday themed, but the characters would love to share with you their take on the 12 days (nights) of Christmas.
“The holiday season,” Ethan sighed and shook his head. “I’m asked often if I celebrate the holidays. They seemed to think that since I’m a vampire I don’t partake in the festivities.” His wide shoulders rolled with a shrug. “No, I don’t eat much and my drink of choice is blood with a shot of whiskey rather than the traditional eggnog – but I do relish a good party.”Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you all the best and happy reading!
Fraya untied the silk bow and lifted the top of neatly wrapped gift box Ethan had set on the bed. He stood beside her, a sexy smile gracing his lips. A white envelope rested atop of pillow of red tissue paper.
“I’m not going to find a dead rat or a severed head in here, am I?”
“Honey, I’m an assassin not a barbarian.”
Fraya pulled the card free and read, “Something naughty for each of the twelve nights of Christmas.”
Fraya turned the box over, emptying the contents on the bed. She eagerly sifted through the tissue paper revealing one sexy item after another.
Ethan took the card and continued to read, “One blind fold. Two bottles of warming massage oil. Three pairs of silk stockings. Four bottles of Champaign, which are in the fridge.”
“You’re right. I should have gotten eight.”
Fraya laughed. “What? Why?”
“They need to last us all 12 nights.”
“Let me put your fears to rest, vampire. This werewolf doesn’t need any liquid courage to mount you,” she teased. Flames of desire sparked in his eyes and she smiled.
He kept reading, “A small assortment of various scented bubble bath. A dozen chocolate covered strawberries. Seven candles.”
“Naturally, we’ve got to have mood lighting.”
He nodded in agreement. “Eight lover’s coupons redeemable for whatever you desire.”
Fraya snatched the tiny notebook up. “Can’t wait to use these. I’ll take a back rub. Maybe a foot massage. Oh, I know, a mani pedi.”
Ethan rolled his eyes.
“You said whatever I desire.”
He grumbled. “Nine different types of lingerie in an assortment of colors. P.S. my favorite is the blue baby doll. Ten pairs of lady’s under garments, again in an assortment of colors.”
Fraya tossed a black pair panties at him. The silk hit his chest and fell back on the mattress. “Some of these are crotchless.”
Ethan’s heart stopping smile returned. “They have a matching bra.”
She couldn’t stop her giggle. “Let me guess, it’s also missing some material.”
He gave her a wink. “Eleven pieces of melt able chocolate.” His hungry gaze traveled down her sumptuous frame. His body went hard as he imagined licking the decadent chocolate from her sweet spots. “And last, but most definitely not least, a list detailing a minimum of twelve different position for us to enjoy.”
Fraya plucked the card from his hand and let the white paper fall to the ground. Wrapping her arms around his neck, she rose to her tip toes. Ethan gripped her hips and pulled her closer, pressing her body against his.
“This was a great gift. Well thought out.” She lightly brushed her lips against his. Ethan’s growl vibrated his chest. Fraya ran her hands through his hair. “I’d say you have no plans on leaving the bedroom,” she whispered.
“Like I said. I relish a good party.”
Ethan claimed her mouth with a fierce kiss.
