Very quickly, let me close out the last of the Cat Tails contests. The winner is announced at the bottom of this post.

Your two answers regarding what DiDi finds across the river from her house are:
Didi finds her aunt’s diary which exposes DiDi’s mixed (human/panther) ancestry.
Didi finds a talisman with a panther symbol that belonged to her aunt—left for her to find on an altar. It “speaks” to her.

I have my marching orders. I know what has to happen next in the story. Thanks for all your help! ~DD

Five days until Bottoms Up!

Coming from Samhain Publishing on December 28th
Pre-order at Amazon
Or Barnes and Noble

Whip me, beat me… feed me!

What’s my kink? Heroes who cook. Give me an alpha in the bedroom who can also serve it up in the kitchen, and I am a happy woman. And a generous woman. I let Destiny Blake, my heroine in Bottoms Up experience this special joy, too. As a sexual Dominant, Destiny isn’t used to letting a man call the shots, but when Dominant bartender Johnny Delcorral challenges her to submit to him for one night, she discovers he’s got skills to spare—and share—in the kitchen, the bedroom and the playroom. One night with him has her begging for more.


“Sit down.” He pulled her down next to him on the couch, settling her so that her side was pressed against the length of his body. They faced the huge wall screen, now dark. It felt right to be sitting next to him while he fed her bites of cheese and bread with butter. Bizarrely date-like.

“Comic books, huh?” she teased.

“We all have our thing.” His smile was brief. “I need a minute to get dinner on the table.”

He stood and she watched him go into the kitchen, admiring the stretch of his tight black T-shirt across the breadth of his shoulders and the way his slightly frayed black jeans fit his ass. His feet were bare. He seemed comfortable cooking, comfortable having her there.

Perversely, she was uncomfortable. The food smelled great, garlicky and cheesy, but she’d been a walking orgasm waiting to happen since she woke up this afternoon and the ride downtown on her motorcycle had been…interesting, to say the least. Now he was making her wait, and that was making her cranky.

She followed him into the kitchen. “Johnny?”

“Yes?” He stirred the boiling pot of pasta.

“I want to come.”

“How bad?” He didn’t turn around.

“What, like on a scale of one to ten?”


“About a seven.” She put her hands on her hips.

“You can wait.” He drained the pasta into a colander in the sink and put a large frying pan onto the stove. Fresh tomatoes, basil and a pile of grated Parmesan waited on a cutting board next to the sink.

“I could have taken care of myself at home, you know,” Destiny said.

“Now that would have been a shame.” Heady garlic filled the kitchen as he sautéed it in oil. He added wine to the pan and let it simmer, then added a big chunk of butter. Her mouth began to water again. Next came the pasta, then the basil, tomatoes and cheese.

“I didn’t know you were planning on playing hard to get.” Maybe she would masturbate right here, standing in the middle of his kitchen. That would show him. She fingered the button of her jeans.

His sly glance intercepted her gesture. “Don’t even think about it. I like thinking about you soaking your panties while we’re eating dinner. Are you wet for me, Destiny?”


“Show me.”

I have a confession to make: I married a chef. Gotta keep my kink well fed, right? *giggle* Do you have a thing for heroes who cook, too? Or have you ever had a memorable meal with a lover? Please share!

If you need some inspiration, I’ve been posting aphrodisiac recipes on my blog ( the entire month of December. Perhaps a little Naughty Hottie Chocolate will hit your spot. Let me know how it works out…

Big thanks to Delilah for letting me kick off my blog tour on her site! Bottoms Up is my first ever release, and I’m really excited about it. It’s the first in a series, appropriately titled Come Again. The second story, SoloPlay, will be released in the spring. I plan to keep the party going for a while, so Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Bottoms Up!

The winner of the Cat Tails poll #3 contest is…Susan R! Susan R, congratulations and email me the email address where you would like the certificate sent!

    I think every woman loves a guy who can cook. There’s just something so sexy about a man who can whip something up 😈 to take care of me. When they really enjoy it and aren’t afraid to show it, that’s even better!

    Can’t wait for Bottoms Up – it sounds like a blast!

    Congrats on your upcoming release! I love men with skills…. cooking skills rank right up there with skills in the bedroom 😉 Looking forward to Bottoms Up!

    I love a guy who can cook too. Sounds like a steamy read. Congrats on your new release.

    Bottoms Up sounds really good. Definitely one I’d be interested in.

    I wish my man had more skills in the kitchen but its isn’t going to happen. Thankfully people write hot stories about hot men who can. Daydreaming is all I have when it comes to the man cooking skill set.

    Hi Natasha! You are a doll for stopping by!

    Thanks, Sue! I guess it’s pretty obvious I’m excited about Bottoms Up, but I figure I’m a grown-up now. I don’t have to be all cool and hide me emotions like I did when I was younger!

    Brandy, I won’t lie. It gives me great joy when my husband brings me a little sandwich when I’m working, but it’s not the only valuable skill set. I bet your guy’s got other skills or you wouldn’t have picked him! We can share Johnny, okay?
