About the Book

five_alarmFeeding the Flames ~ Leah Breamel

When chef Tabatha Morgan returns to Barnett Springs, her burning crush on firefighter Zac Buchanan flares back to life. Trouble is, Zac has made a promise to keep his distance from Tabby, so Zac’s best friend and fellow firefighter Quinn decides to help feed the flames of their mutual desire.

Combustible ~ Lexxie Couper

Arson investigator, Desmond Russell is the best in Australia. Cool, calm and collected, nothing ruffles him. Until he meets Outback fire brigade captain, Jess Montgomery, a woman who ignites all his sexual desires. The initial spark will engulf them both…but will their hearts survive the inferno?

Wet Down ~ Delilah Devlin

Out with the old, in with the new…Or so Sherry Thacker thinks. Problem is, her ex is always on her mind and right across the street. When a “Wet Down” ceremony to retire an old fire truck is planned by the city council she has to put aside her hurt and anger and do her job. Blake Thacker wants his wife back—in every way and he’ll use whatever means necessary to win her back. Sex is always best served WET.

Two to Spark ~ Marie Harte

When a psychic predicts that a faulty toaster, a black cat, and the wrong address will bring Cooper together with Ms. Right, he shrugs off the notion as crazy. But before long, fate has something else in store for the sexy firefighter when a spark of attraction ignites into true love.

Controlled Burn ~ Desiree Holt

Montana Wade was home after writing off the past ten years of her life, but she needed one more night of courage before she faced her family. Boone Crider, hotshot firefighter, was burned out form the rash of malicious fires. They thought one night as strangers would cure them both, but the fire they started between them soon became a barely controlled burn.

Up In Smoke ~ Lissa Matthews

Half-brothers, Josh and Jay, share everything from a house, to a love of curvy, older women. So when their dream woman accidentally sets her kitchen on fire, they ride to her rescue, sirens blaring, promising to kindle flames that may never be extinguished.

Rekindled ~ Cari Quinn

Some blazes refuse to be contained. It’s been months since ex-firefighter Katie Kemp has spoken to her former lover and squad mate, Dash Carlton. But when a late night drive down memory lane leads her to a small fire at Dash’s house, she realizes she’s not willing to turn her back on the hottest flame of her life.

Into the Fire ~ Shelli Stevens

Shannon has always prided herself on holding her own in the male dominated field of firefighting. She likes to be in control. Until she strikes a bargain with a sexy man from her past who makes her give it all up in the bedroom.

While we want as many people to enjoy this collection of original novellas as possible, it is intended for mature readers, 18 years of age and older.

Was it easier to write your story knowing about the concept beforehand or was this a story you had already thought about writing?

I had been fiddling around with the characters in Feeding the Flames for a couple years now; I’d actually started writing their story 2 years ago but put it aside when my Carina Press editor contacted me to write The Grady Legacy series. So having some time to let them form in my head made them easier to write this time around.

What inspired you to write about these particular characters? What was the deciding factor in choosing their story for this Anthology?

Because I’d been thinking about these characters for so long and since both Quinn and Zac were firefighters, they were an obvious choice when Lexxie contacted me and said she was putting together a firefighter bundle. I suspect they telepathically contacted her when I met her in Kansas City last year. 😉

What’s your favorite line from your story?

 “Makin’ out with a woman is a lot more romantic in a bed than in the front seat of your truck, I promise.”

Give us the inside scoop on another author in the anthology. (Share a “secret” or funny story)

Lexxie Cooper, Shelli Stevens and I had breakfast together in New Orleans during the RT Booklovers’ convention to discuss the anthology but since Lexxie is from Australia, Shelli from the US, and I’m from Canada, we ended up discussing the different types of bacon each of our countries use. Now everytime I eat bacon I think of Shelli and Lexxie.

Would you consider doing this type of collaboration again?

Yes, it’s nice to have the support of a group of authors of a variety of experiences and finding out we have so much in common.

What’s up next for you?

I’m finishing up WRANGLING THE PAST, the final book in my contemporary western series THE GRADY LEGACY, and repackaging and release some formerly published short stories – CHERRY COTTAGE, FIRST NIGHT, and UNASHAMED.  After that’s done, I’m getting back to writing the next book in my HAUBERK PROTECTION romantic suspense series. (So many stories to write, so little time!)

Does music play any type of role in your writing?

I often create a playlist to listen to while I’m writing, especially for my western stories. And if music isn’t playing then I have background sounds – using apps like Relax Melodies by Ipsos Soft or Calm.com to help prod my creative side.

When you start a book, do you already have the whole story in your head or is it built progressively?

It’s different with every book. Some characters, like Sam Watson of PRIVATE PROPERTY (http://bit.ly/1tMoZUQ) and PERSONAL PROTECTION (http://bit.ly/1qGYzRm) , or Sarah, Jackson and Nate, the characters from TANGLED PAST (http://bit.ly/1q68bqM) , walk into my head fully formed and sit down and dictate their story. Other times, the stories are built progressively—where I start telling the story thinking it’s going to go off in one direction until a character does something I wasn’t expecting and realize he knows better and I build the story from there. I’ve tried plotting meticulously but generally by the end of the first page, the story has already taken off in another direction, so I guess as much as I want to call myself a plotter, I also write by the seat of my pants on occasion.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Sometimes I have a main character, like Gabe in my upcoming release WRANGLING THE PAST, who, like most men, is not a big talker. The trouble is, I need him to talk to me, to tell me his story so I can do his character justice. So writing an alpha male who doesn’t want to co-operate can be very challenging. Okay, I know there are non-writers thinking that sounds overly dramatic, and there are those who say “there is no muse, you just have to push through” and they’re (somewhat) right, but it really helps make writing easier for me if the characters are cooperative instead of being stubborn and saying “that’s not what I’d do” or “I want to do that instead” or worse, “grr, not talking to you anymore.”  The other challenging thing for me in a romance is to not let the outside plot overpower the romance angle. I love writing romantic suspenses, but I have to keep reminding myself that my readers are more interested in the romance and the sexual tension than the outside plot – because I often find in my first drafts I concentrate more on the outside plot and realize at the end there’s very little about the romance and then have to start all over again.

How can readers discover more about you and your work?

If a reader wants to know more about my books, they can visit my website (http://bit.ly/1o6z7If) or look me up on Goodreads ( http://bit.ly/1iXjNMa  ). But if they want to see what I’m visualizing about the locations my books take place in, or how I visualize a character, then they can visit my Pinterest boards (http://bit.ly/1kLL0yc ) If they’re in Canada, I’m going to be attending Bookapalooza in Oshawa Ontario, November 22nd, and April 2015 I’ll be at Romancing the Capital in Ottawa. (more information can be found on my website). I will probably be attending more conferences such as Lori Foster’s Reader and Author Get Together next year but those aren’t open for registration yet.

lexxie couper

Lexxie Couper started writing when she was six and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not a deviant, but she does have a deviant’s imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get erotic romances that can make you laugh, cry, shake with fear or tremble with desire. Sometimes all at once.

When she’s not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie’s life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she’s insane, a indoor cat who likes to stalk shadows, and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Having no idea how old she really is, Lexxie decided to go with 27 and has been that age for quite some time now. It’s the best of both worlds – old enough to act mature, young enough to be silly.

Lexxie lives by two simple rules – measure your success not by how much money you have, but by how often you laugh, and always try everything at least once. As a consequence, she’s laughed her way through many an eyebrow raising adventure.

Couper, Lexxie: Shadow Whispers

Shadow Whispers

 

 

About Shadow Whispers by Lexxie Couper

 

Temptation…

Jared died twenty years ago. Now he’s trapped between Heaven and Hell, sent back again and again to protect those whose time has not yet come. Never before has he been tempted by the desires of mortal flesh. But then, he never had to watch over Tess Darcy before. For Tess he’ll break every rule, even if it costs him his immortal soul.

Haunted by nightmares of the stalker who nearly killed her, Tess has buried herself deep in the Australian Outback to escape her past. But Kangaroo Creek isn’t quite the quaint little town it looked on the map. Nothing is what it seems here. Every night, the same incredibly hot erotic dreams visit her, leaving her wanting more. The Librarian’s channeling demons, and assures Tess the handsome hunk she just ran into is dead. The bookstore seems to have rather unusual clients, and destroyed photos have a way of reappearing over and over again.

Other than that it’s a peaceful little town… until the man who nearly killed her returns from the dead. Is Jared the man of her dreams? Can he save her from her nightmares, or will the magic that haunts this town consume them both?

Excerpt:

Tess’s fists pulled on the sheets, tore them from the mattress. Juices flooded her sex.

Lick.

“Oh…”

Flick.

“My…”

Stab.

“F***ing…”

Suck.

“God…”

Bite.

“Yes.”

Just as she knew she could take no more, that she was on the edge of the precipice ready to fall, her lover stopped. Lifted his head.
Eyes like ice stared into hers, boring into her soul.

“Tease.” she gasped.

He didn’t reply. He never did. Instead he straightened, knees still firmly planted beside hers, and wrapped one large hand around his rigid organ, stroking its bulbous head with his thumb.

Tess sucked in a breath, the squirming tension in her pussy impatient. That massive, solid cock would be soon embedded in her sex, stretching her to the very limits. Meeting his burning stare, she caught her breath as he moved closer, cock lined up with her spread folds.

She was ready.

Ready to be consumed.

To be—

The raucous laugh of a lone kookaburra shattered the night.

With a gasp, Tess sat bolt upright, heart hammering against her chest, nostrils flaring.

She stared about the room, her eyes darting from one dark corner to the next. Nothing but unpacked boxes, stacks of books and deep moon-cast shadows. Alone. She was alone.

A growl of frustration tore from her throat as she dragged her hands through her tousled hair. A dream. Just another ***damn dream.
Outside, the insomniac kookaburra screeched with mirth again.

Biting back a curse, Tess dropped back onto her bed. “F**k.” Her mutter fell heavy in the silence of the night, as did her angry sigh.

Five nights. Five nights in a row of the most explosive sex of her life, only to awaken every time to discover it was just a dream. She stared up at the still unfamiliar ceiling of her bedroom, craving release.

Five nights.

Excerpt

Chapter 1

I never knew what hit me. One moment I’m skimming over the surface of Mercy’s beta moon, its dull red ground a blurred carpet below me, its dry, cold air filling my lungs… The next I’m flat on my back, wrists pinned to the powdery grit, legs spread, with a man roughly six-foot-seven pressing down on me. A cock that felt like a Tallaxion viper—y’know the really big, thick ones they find in the Furthest Jungles—rammed at the junction of my thighs, shoving at the lips of my sex with a brutal force that should have pissed me off but instead made my pulse leap and my mouth turn dry. I stared up at whoever the fuck held me down, glaring into eyes the color of an angry Earth sky. A lone female on a jet cycle probably looked like an easy target, but for fuck’s sake, I wore the uniform of a Galactic Union Enforcer. What type of idiot, no matter how desperate to claim a woman, jumped a cop? Especially one flying across a moon at almost twice the safe propulsion speed with an Aglaian disruptor on her right hip? “This kind,” the hulking man who felt like granite murmured, jerking my wrists above my head. He locked them in one large fist and yanked my disruptor from its thigh harness before I could blink. Or digest the fact he’d answered a question I hadn’t asked aloud.

Couper, Lexxie: Getting Played, Heart of Fame #7

Getting played

 

Getting Played

(Heart Of Fame #7)

by Lexxie Couper:

 

Getting Played CoverAfter yet another month without a lead singer, the band Synergy is on the verge of calling it quits. Which drives Jaxon Campbell, keyboardist and perpetual player, to do something dangerous—hit up a woman with contacts—and curves—in all the right places. Trouble is, the last time he saw her, he kind of broke her heart. And stole her cherished, autographed AC/DC album.

Natalie Thorton, Dean of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, knows everyone who’s anyone in Australia’s music industry. She’s driven and utterly professional and doesn’t have room in her schedule for relationships.

When Jaxon strides into her office, all of Natalie’s suppressed sexual urges—the ones born in Jax’s arms—surge to the surface. He wants something from her? Well, she wants something from him. Orgasms. Lots of them.

How can Jax say no? He’s never forgotten her, and it’s not like they’re going to fall in love. But just who’s playing who? And whose heart is going to fall first?

Warning: Contains a sexual challenge involving sex in public places, sex in private places, sex in moving cars, sex against windows and sex in the company of an oblivious federal politician. So basically, we’re talking about getting laid. A lot.

#6 Blame It On The Bass

 

Excerpt:

“I’ll find you a replacement for Nick Blackthorne,” Nat said, her voice a raspy, rapid breath. It was as if she was having some surreal, out-of-body experience, except she suspected it was actually her body in charge of her brain and mouth and tongue and voice box. Her body, after all, had never forgotten what sex with Jax was like. And never forgave her for denying it more. “On the condition you give me—”

“Sex?” he cut her off, lips twitching.

. . .

The way he used to.

“Not just sex, Jaxon,” she corrected, her brain slowly catching up with her body’s licentious intent. If she was doing this—and it appeared she was—she was doing it big. The bastard had stolen her AC/DC album, after all. It was high time she got something back. “Mind-blowing, earth-shattering sex. Let’s call them a series of sexual challenges, shall we? For each challenge you achieve, I’ll introduce you to a possible candidate to replace Blackthorne.”

Jax studied her, his expression ambiguous. But there, in his eyes, was that promise. It made her sex constrict and her breath quicken.

Nat sucked in a slow breath. Damn, this was a risky move. But if she played it right, kept her heart protected, the payoff would be amazing. The best sex of her life with the only man who had ever truly satisfied her. She’d come dangerously close to falling in love with him all those years ago. It had only been a stubborn sense of self-preservation that had saved her, but she was older now, wiser, more jaded about romance. She didn’t want romance from Jax. She wanted sex. And he’d just presented her with the perfect way to get it.

Unattached, no-strings, make-him-suffer sex.

She bit back a soft whimper at the unnerving, enticing thought and cocked an eyebrow at Jax. Who she noticed hadn’t uttered a word since sex. “Well?” she said, leaning closer to him, heart fast, lips curling. “You said you’d make it worth my while.”

“Deal.”

Burning Up by Sami Lee

Pam Spencer is sick of looking for love in all the wrong places. Sure, she wants a solid relationship, but if steamy casual sex is on offer, who is she to turn it down? Especially when the offer comes from not one, but two smokin’ hot firefighters.
