Surprise! Back From the Past release from Mia Downing

It's Thursday 8/29 and I can finally share my secret! 

Anyone who knows me knows that me keeping a secret for any length of time is like storing a cat in a bag. Well, the cat is out and she's excited (not spitting mad, like you'd expect. LOL I'm an odd cat.) 

Every year the M/M romance group in GoodReads does a free read program called Don't Read In The Closet. The purpose is to get people reading and enjoying m/m and to help cross barriers. Last year when I discovered the M/M group the event was well underway, so I vowed to do it when it came around again.

This year's event is called Love Has No Boundaries. I was given a prompt and a letter from a reader, and I wrote a story to fit it. Mine was a hot guy in a river or lake, and Bookbee wanted to know why that man had broken the other's heart. He was back from the past...would he get the answers he needed? (Man, is he divine!)

Back From the Past is an erotic romance reunion story: 

After ten years, Gregg Madison had given up rehearsing what he'd ask when Jase Addams returned. His high school lover had bolted for the military to prove to his dad he was a man. But as Jase now swims across the lake in those firm, strong strokes, Gregg realizes he has about thirty seconds to either flee or face the man back from the past.

Thank you to Christi, Emma, Lynne, Alisa, and Kim for the cheering and beta reading! And Diana Carlile for the editing and amazing cover. I think she's outdone herself. And of course, the amazing people in the M/M Romance group who worked so hard to put the LHNB event together. I forgot to thank Bookbee for writing an amazing prompt and choosing the picture. So thank you, Bookbee!

If you're a member of the M/M romance group, Here's the link. If not, you'll need to join, and it's an amazing, supportive, wonderful group of readers and authors.

 But FEAR NOT! In a week it will be available at their website, and everyone can download it. There are lots of other books there to download for free--favorite authors and new favorites waiting to be discovered!

Teach Me To Ride with Rachel Leigh!

Today we have the fabulous Rachel Leigh and a character interview for her newest The Wild Rose Press release, Teach Me to Ride! I'm a horse girl at heart, so anything that has to to with show jumping and romance is a win/win for me. Make it hot and spicy and I'm in heaven! Well, Rachel has all that in her newest release. Here's a blurb and then a revealing character interview with horseman Michael Canton. 


~ Mia

BLURB for Teach Me to Ride:

Caroline James wants to be the best investigative journalist London has ever seen. But until she has the money to leave the small town of Fayre Mead, she's stuck and her resentment is building. So when she’s assigned to cover the Lakeland Horse Trials and meets sexy, dark-haired, and astoundingly fit horse trainer, Michael Canton, she is happy to vent some sexual and emotional frustration…and write the story of her career. But after getting personal with Michael, can she remain impersonal with the article?

Michael Canton will do anything in his power to silence his tyrannical father once and for all. Under extreme pressure to compete in the countries show jumper trials and prove his worth, Michael’s fiery emotions are running high. Caroline’s beauty and sexual confidence stokes an inner strength and determination he never knew he had. But can he trust her to know the difference between fact and fiction? Together, they are a formidable team…but will their burning ambitions ultimately blow them apart?

Character Interview with Michael Canton

What was your childhood like?

I grew up surrounded by horses. My father was a renowned show jumper in the eighties and horses have been in my life forever. My relationship with my parents was…and still is, strained at best. I love my mom very much but the behavior she’s tolerated from my father is hard for a child to understand or forgive.

Now I’m older, I see she was a woman in love but also a woman who enjoyed the wealth and notoriety being married to my father brought. As for my father…let’s not go there.

You’ve recently spent a lot of time with a local journalist, Caroline James. Do you want to tell us about that?

::Fidgets before turning steely eyes:: She wanted a story from me–a story she hoped would catapult her career to the City. We met under tense circumstances. We needed each other.

And now?

And now things are…developing. That’s all I have to say.

What do you do for fun?

Training my horses is my work but also my fun. I’m with them as many hours as possible. Fitness is ultra important to me so I swim and play squash as much as possible. I’m also learning to have some down time recently – let’s just say decent food, great wine and a phenomenal sex life can turn a guy’s head from what he thought important before he met a certain someone.

Do you see children in your future?

Yes. As many as possible. I love kids and have a lot of love to give. If God blesses me and they come along, they will be my focus entirely.

Today we're...In Deep Water with Anita Philmar

Ha, we're not really in deep water with Anita, but we are discussing her latest release, In Deep Water! 

Blurb for In Deep Water

Skinny-dipping to cool off in the Trinity River couldn’t cause any problem...could it?

Wading into the water, Carolyn Evans takes one step to far and finds herself neck­-deep in the river and fighting for her life.

After saving Carolyn from drowning, Zack Goodman is trapped in an awkward situation when they’re both rescued by a steamboat and hauled on deck.

Naked and embarrassed, Carolyn is quick to save them from humiliation and claims they are married.

Will Zack release her from her claim of matrimony? Or will he teach her once words are spoken...they are not so easily retracted?

Excerpt from In Deep Water 
“Oh, God, I don’t want to die.” The girl in his arms dug her nails into his arm. Her muscles tensed, and she sank deeper into the water. He gasped a quick breath before the weight of her body pulled them both under again.

Water streamed up between them, and she turned in the circle of his arms. Her hands gripped his shoulders, and she shoved him deeper in her attempt to keep her own head above water.

He sank into the murky depths and freed himself from her panicked grip. She yelled, and her foot connected with his chest. Air exploded from his lungs. He swam away from her and quickly rose back to the surface. A loud whir roared in his ears.

With one big gulp, he swallowed both air and water. His lungs rejected the mixture and he choked out a cough.

Plop. An object hit the water, and he stared at a floating white circle. Waves crashed around him.

“Grab hold, and we’ll pull you up.” A voice boomed from the steamboat.

Zack glanced around and caught sight of the girl struggling to reach the device. He swam to her and shoved her closer to the floating ring. Then he grabbed ahold of the device and wrapped his arm around her waist. “Just hold on, and they’ll lift us up.”

Her eye grew wider. “But...” She glanced at the boat’s railing.

The rope tied to the device lifted the ring onto its side. Zack tightened his grip on the girl and repositioned her into its center. “Put your head through here, and wrap your arms over the sides.”

She did as he instructed seconds before the device rose up between them. He wrapped his arms around the ring and grabbed ahold of the rope.

His feet dangled in the water for a moment before they swung on the end of the line. The motion slammed him into the side of the steamboat. Pain radiated along his right side, but he didn’t loosen his grip.

The rope jerked them upward.

“Oh, God, what if they drop us.” The girl buried her head in his shoulder. “Thanks for at least trying to save me.”

Her naked body plastered against him eased the pain in his back. Silky skin caressed his stomach and her warmth penetrated the fabric of his pants. Need heated his blood, alleviating the cold chill of the river.

He glanced up at the concerned expressions of the people lining the steamboat’s rail. His body hid the girl in his arms, and he wondered what the curious passengers would say when they finally arrived on board?

Wow! That was awesome! Want to find out what happens next?

Interview With Mia Downing's Spy Games Heroes Blog Jump Aug 26-30

Welcome to the Meet The Author, Interview with a Character blog hop! Thank you to Kasey Dean for sponsoring this event! 

Grand Prize: $50 Amazon gift card

Mia's Prize: Either an e-copy of Spy Games: Endgame, or a copy of one of the other Spy Games books if you haven't read the series yet. 

Hi! I'm Mia Downing, and I write erotic romance. Check out my links on the side bar for more information about me--boring stuff. Let's get on with the much more exciting character interview! 

Because I’m a brave woman, I’ve decided to interview all three of my hunky heroes from the Spy Games series. At the same time. Chase Sanders and Jake Anderson work together as spies, are best friends, and have shared a lot of things in their lives—including Chase’s wife, Kate Sanders. Aaron Anderson is an actor, Jake’s youngest brother, and goes under the SAG name of Aaron James.

Mia: Welcome, guys. Have a seat on the stools. Keep the F-bombs to a minimum and I’ll feed you brownies at the end.

Aaron: I heard what Mia said. I thought you guys worked for the IRS? And's what with sharing Kate?

Chase: (glaring) Classified information. All of it.

Mia: Okay, so first question. We’ll do some quick easy ones to warm you three up. Boxers, briefs or commando?

Chase: Classified information. No one gives a shit what I wear.

Jake: Chase wears tighty whities. I prefer boxer briefs. They’re more comfortable when I'm in the saddle.

Aaron: (to Jake) Do I even want to know how you know what he wears?

Jake: He’s my best friend. I know what he wears just like I know you like boxer briefs, too.

Chase: (laughs) Shopping for a family discount?

Mia: Okay, that’s a good start. Boxer briefs are very sexy. And Chase, of course we care what you wear. You’re a handsome man. Women wonder these things.

Chase: Thank you.

Mia: Next question—chocolate or peanut butter.

(Chase and Jake laugh.)

Mia: Is this something you two have contemplated in the past? 

Chase: Of course, but it's not much of a debate. Chocolate spreads better. Especially chocolate sauce.

Jake: Yeah, warm hot chocolate spreads out smooth on hot skin. And after all of those jokes about the lonely girl who spreads peanut butter on her—

Aaron: (Glancing from Jake to Chase) Those weren’t real stories?

Chase: Jesus, Aaron, are you that gullible? What girl would spread peanut butter on her pus--

Aaron: (Interrupting) Don't use that word in front of Mia. 

Chase: (rolling eyes) Okay, okay. What girl would spread peanut butter on her lady parts for her dog to lick off? No one is that lonely. (Glares at Aaron.) Happy?

Aaron: Yes. (Patting Mia's hand) Sorry, Mia.

I take it we’re voting for chocolate? And Aaron, it’s okay. I write that word. All the time.

Chase and Jake: Chocolate.

Aaron: I was going to say peanut butter, but... 

Jake: (laughs) Man-up and go with chocolate. Charlotte will thank you. 

Chase: (growling in Aaron's direction) Not no, HELL no.

Mia: Okay, okay, calm down. Next question. What super power would you chose for the guy on your right. Aaron for Jake, Jake for Chase, and Chase for Aaron.

Jake: (looks at Chase) The ability to clean.

Chase: Fuck you, that’s not a super power.

Jake: You clean everything as it is and you’re good at it. Imagine if you could clean shit up from the flick of a wrist or a nod? Need to clean up a dirty kitchen, soiled bed linens, a herd of drug runners? Snap.

Chase: (shakes his head) I’d put you out of a job.

Jake: There’s always a job for me. I can boldly go where you can’t.

Mia: Okay, that’s a suitable super power. I’d like that if Chase doesn't want it. So Aaron, what would you chose for Jake?

Aaron: Well, I thought he was IRS all of this time, so I would have given him savant math skills, but since he’s a spy…

Chase: Classified information!

Jake: I want the ability to pop off girl’s tops with a blink of my eye. Or X-ray vision.

Aaron: You can't choose for me!

Jake: I’m the big brother, and since I can pound your snotty ass into the ground, I say one of the two.

Aaron: Popping off bikini tops would be cool, but I call shotgun in the car. We'll head out to the beach.

Jake: Done deal.

Chase: No fucking way, you’re sitting in the back--

Mia: (Interrupts) Okay, so I’m almost afraid to ask this… Chase, what would you choose for Aaron?

Chase: (rubbing his chin as he contemplates) Invisibility.

Aaron: (looking confused) What? Why?

Chase: Then I don’t have to look at you, watch your movies, and hopefully not listen to you.

Aaron: I can kick your ass and you not see me coming.

Chase: (cocking a brow and rolling up his sleeves) Try me.

Aaron: (grins widely.) I can sneak up on Charlotte and--

Chase: (jumps off the stool) That's it, you're dead.

Mia: Okay! Thank you, boys. I think that’s enough. Jake, break those two up. All of you can have a brownie.

Sassy Trained for Seduction for Snippet Sunday! #SnippetSun

Welcome to my Snippet Sunday excerpt! This one is from Spy Games: Trained for Seduction, book one of the series. It's on sale for .99 this week only on Amazon so check it out at the end! 

The lead-in: After a torrid weekend of kinky fun, Chase and Kate have decided to cool things off a bit. Only it doesn't seem to be working too well. 
Sassy Snippet from Trained for Seduction...

Kate blurted out, “You have to fuck me--now.”

Chase's eyes widened more. “Now?”

“You woke me with a hard-on against my ass. I know we’re supposed to be more… professional, but if you don’t want me to demand sex from you, you can’t wake me with a hard-on in my ass. It’s a deal breaker.”

Now those eyes turned wary. He spun to face her, his hands gripping the sink edge, his cock impossibly harder, longer as he absorbed her words. “I told you that you could have sex as long as you remembered the rules.” 

Yeah, yeah, fuck the rules.

Nona Raines Chats about His Kind of Woman! #GBLT

Today we have Nona Raines chatting about her latest release, a transgender erotic romance! This is a new and interesting sub-genre for me since I only have written a few m/m erotic romances. I'm eager to read more about the inspiration behind the book! I hope you are, too. Enjoy! 

~*~ Mia ~*~

Kids Will Be Kids?

Bullying has been in the news lately, and I must say that I’m glad to see it’s being taken much more seriously than it once was. When I was a child, there was much more of a “kids will be kids” attitude surrounding it. Bullying was often shrugged off and kids were on their own. If the bullying was physical, children were sometimes urged to fight back. But how does someone fight back against verbal harassment, name-calling, and pure meanness?

Very often children and young people who are seen as “different” are the victims of relentless bullying. Often these young people are gay or transgender. According to The Trevor Project, “LGBT students are three times as likely as non-LGBT students to say that they do not feel safe at school (22% vs. 7%) and 90% of LGBT students (vs. 62% of non-LGBT teens) have been harassed or assaulted during the past year.” In some cases, the results are tragic. There have been heartbreaking incidents of boys and girls taking their own lives because they could see no end in sight to their torment.

In my newest story, His Kind of Woman, the heroine is transgender. Venetia’s a well-adjusted, smart, capable woman who’s moved 
beyond the horrible bullying that marred her high-school years. She’s finally living the life she was meant to live. When Roy Girard shows up at her door, she has no idea that his brother was one of the boys who made her high school years so hellish. Nor does she realize that Roy wants to make amends for his brother’s actions.

Thank goodness parents, teachers and administrators are now making efforts to be pro-active regarding bullying. From no-tolerance policies to character education programs to school-wide behavioral interventions, adults are now taking this issue seriously. More children will have the support they need.

Blurb for His Kind of Woman:

When Roy Girard went looking for Victor Varrano, he never expected a woman to answer the door. He soon discovers that Victor is now Venetia. Roy's startled, but even more surprised by his attraction to her. As they spend time together, he doesn't want to let her go. But she's sure to dump him when she learns his secret.

Venetia's falling hard and fast for Roy. But when she learns that his brother was the bully who tormented her in high school, she's shattered. She can't wrap her head around the fact that the man who made such amazing love to her could so completely betray her trust.


He was just being polite, making sure she made it safely to her door, checking to see she wouldn’t dissolve into a puddle of goo after the scene in the cafĂ©. But she had other ideas.

At her door, she took the initiative and kissed him, crushing her breasts to him and practically grinding her lips against his. When she pulled back, she was gasping. “Do you want me?”

He licked his lips, and his eyes narrowed as he peered at her. She read his expression—Where is this coming from?—and knew he wanted to be a gentleman. He didn’t want to take advantage of her in a vulnerable state. The hell with that.

“Do you want me, Roy? Tell me the truth. Because I want you. Right now.” He didn’t need to answer because she felt his hard-on prod her pelvis. She kissed him again and holding on to his belt, pulled him inside her apartment.

After tossing her sweater and purse on the sofa, she turned toward Roy. He was as still and substantial as a mountain, as real, as dependable. She needed his sturdiness now, needed his strength. “You do want me, don’t you? But you’ve been afraid.”

He flushed like a boy being caught with his father’s Playboy.

“It’s all right,” she told him as she began to unbutton her blouse. “I understand. You’re worried.” She slowly undid the rest of the buttons until the front of the blouse fell open. “I say I’m a woman, but I used to have a man’s body. And you wonder—am I really truly who I say I am?” She slipped off the blouse and stood before him in her pale blue bra.

The heat of his gaze seared her as he stared at her breasts. Her nipples prickled. She unsnapped the front closure of her bra and let the straps slide down her arms. Her dark brown nipples jutted straight out at him, needing him to touch them, kiss them. Roy’s Adam’s apple bobbed, and Venetia could swear she heard him swallow hard.

She stood proudly for a moment to let him look at her. She had suffered for this body, not just physically, but emotionally, financially, in every way imaginable. Let her enjoy it now; let him enjoy it too. She basked in his admiration, but as the heat and urgency grew between her legs, Venetia knew it would not be enough.

She kicked off her pumps and shimmied out of her jeans. Now she wore only her lacy blue panties. She loved these panties, loved how sexy and feminine they made her feel, and now she saw how Roy loved them too.

The enormity of the step she was about to take suddenly hit her. Though she tried to steady it, her voice vibrated with fear as she spoke again. No backing down now, no running away. She slipped her thumb into the waistband of her panties. “There won’t be any surprises when I take these off,” she assured him. “My outside matches my inside now. I’m completely a woman in every way.”

As she began to pull the panties down, he stopped her. “Wait.”

She froze and her chest squeezed in disappointment. He didn’t want her?

He approached her, indicating the panties. “I want to do that.”

Randi Alexander’s New Release and Book Giveaway--Win a Country Rock Star Romance

Today I have sister Erotic Cravings member Randi Alexander to discuss her new release, Chase and Seduction! Chase is a hot country star and actor as well as a cowboy! Reno is an author living the dream of having her book turned into a movie--staring the hunky Chase! You know there has to be fire to go along with all that hawt! Pull up a fan (or a fire extinguisher) and read on! 

~*~ Mia ~*~

Thanks so much for hosting me today, Mia! I love your writing, and it’s a pleasure plotting and goal-setting with you at Erotic Cravings.

I have a new release out! It’s based on a fantasy of mine. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a music superstar pick you out of the audience and haul you up on stage? This book idea came to me in a dream after I saw a very sexy, hip-swiveling country western superstar in concert.

Although in my book, Chase didn’t exactly scoop Reno from up onto the stage, but he did set out to seduce her as they worked together on a movie set. She held off, kept everything professional with the hot Southern rocker...until after filming ended. Then she let him make his move.

We all have our favorite musician; the one whose songs make us a little breathless, the one we wouldn’t mind spending time backstage we weren’t already happily married/engaged/dating, of course. Who is your ultimate stage crush? The one person who makes you wobbly-kneed and tingly-bellied? Leave a comment for your chance to win an ecopy of Chase and Seduction.
Book Blurb for Chase and Seduction:

Country music superstar/actor Chase Tanner has yet to be denied anything–and he’s never wanted anything or anyone more than gorgeous screenplay writer Reno Linden. So when the film they are working on is finally finished, Chase decides to turn up the volume on seducing Reno.

Reno Linden lived a quiet, rural life until she was thrust into the Hollywood scene when her book was adapted to film. Chase Tanner is larger than life, sinfully sexy and hell-bent on getting her into bed. Skittish after a failed wedding engagement, Reno risks the plunge into Chase’s arms, and is surprised that her good girl self can keep up with bad boy Chase.

Though Chase returns to his cowboy roots often, and Reno cherishes the time spent with him on his ranch, the two find their careers pulling them in different directions. Will their attraction survive the glitz and stress of fame?

* * * * *

Chase and Seduction Excerpt:

Reno looked at Chase for a minute, losing herself in the dark passion in his eyes. Fisting her hand in his silky hair, she pulled him down to her and kissed him. Her tongue plunged in, twisting with his.

He took over, his lips slanting on hers, his breath hot and sweet as he explored every crevice of her mouth, teasing and caressing. His arms wrapped tightly, and he spread his feet apart so his hips could grind back and forth across her mound.

Her mind numbed to everything but the throbbing of her slit, the trickle of cream dripping from her opening onto her swollen lips, wetting her panties. She pulled his head back, still gripping his hair, and took huge breaths. “I’m drowning, Chase. Don’t let me go.”

“Reno.” His voice caught. “Never.” He walked her backward three steps and flattened her against the hard wall. His eyes bore into hers, his pupils dilated, making them look black, sensual, intense. He ran a hand up under her shirt, up to her breast. Her nipple grew rock hard as he teased it with his thumb, circling then squeezing it.

The pleasure ached, shivered down her belly, down low between her legs, making her cry out with the urgency of her need. He had to take her. Now. She couldn’t wait.

Chase tugged up her bra and fit her breast into his hand. “Oh baby, this is so fucking much better than I imagined.”

She stared at him, his face so close it seemed like a dream. Her voice seemed to come from far away. “Did you, Chase? Did you think about this? About making love to me?” She wanted to cry, for some insane reason—cry and hold on to him forever.

He gyrated his hips against her, hitting her clit through her clothes. “Yeah, I thought about this. Every time we talked, every time I saw you across a room.” He took her nipple between his finger and thumb again and caressed it. “And a hundred times a day when I could only see you in my mind.”

The ecstasy streaking from her breast to her pussy was outrageous. Sweet, heavenly contractions began, and she tipped up her hips to better feel his cock against her clit. The increased pressure flooded her pussy with heat as her climax neared.

“Reno.” He captured her mouth with his, demanding and driving, his need becoming frantic. He moved his hand from her breast to the waistband of her shorts and slid his fingers in, catching her lacy underwear with it.

Wanting to prolong her ecstasy, she pulled away from his kiss and caught her breath while she unbuttoned his shirt and yanked it open. Seeing his muscular pecs and abs, she lost all control and ran her hands over his hot, satiny skin, making circles with her fingers in the auburn hair lightly covering his chest. She leaned forward and bit him on the collarbone.

He cried out. “Oh yeah, baby, I like a little pain.”

She kissed the spot she’d just bitten. “And a little pleasure?” She’d never been so bold with a man. All her inhibitions had packed up and left.

He yanked her shorts and underwear down to the floor then stood and cupped her pussy with his big hand. “A lot of pleasure.”

Happy dreams of your superstar!

Inside Scoop For The Spy Games Series By Mia Downing

To celebrate the release of Spy Games: Endgame to Amazon, The Wild Rose Press is graciously offering for sale the first two books in the Spy Games series. The sale is taking place at all distributors! Now is the time to get a jump on this great series.

Since I already did a post with the blurbs last week, I figured I'd do a fun things about each book post for something different. 

Keep in mind, The Wild Rose Press is offering my back list of books on sale for 50% until Friday, August 16! Click the link above to visit my page there! 

Book 1—Spy Games: Trained for Seduction, on sale for $.99 until August 23!

 This book came to me at night as a bedtime story I told myself because Mr. Downing snores like a semi going up a mountain. I had never thought of writing it. It was just something to pass the time because I was either too lazy or too cold to get up and move to the couch. The story never quite worked the way I wanted until one night I wondered why Chase couldn't be younger (he'd been an older boss before.) And why Kate couldn't fall for him instead of Jake... Then I went all smutty on the idea and POOF, Chase and Kate’s romance was born.

Available at:


Book 2—Spy Games: Lethal Limits, on sale for $.99 until August 23!

The first scene that came to me was Jake waking up from being knocked unconscious, tied to a bed and a gorgeous woman standing over him. This isn’t Jake’s usual scenario but he’s easy to please, and I could see him being absolutely captivated (no pun intended.) Of course then I wanted to know who, what and WHY! I loved that Tia was so spunky and determined to get what she wanted. Jake loves that in a woman. 

What surprised me most in writing the book was that Jake had a past of heartbreak as well. It wasn't a planned thing, and so when he admitted it, I had to go back and weave in a bunch of plot points. I was so excited! I love when characters surprise me with motivation I didn't know about. 

Available at:


Book 3—Spy Games: Endgame. 

This one came to me again like Lethal Limits, and I must have a thing for tying guys up because this time it’s poor Aaron bound to a chair. But I promise you, Charlotte didn’t do it! She’s merely rescuing him, but who can resist kissing a sexy actor trussed up like a Christmas goose? 

This book is a little different than the other two. After two books of very sexy and kinky reformed man whores I thought it would be nice to write about a guy with less experience. Aaron was destined to become a priest and left while at the seminary for many reasons. Charlotte has to get over a few issues but warms to the idea of teaching Aaron the finer points of sex!

Emma is already half in love with the dark and dangerous Chase Sanders. Kate wants nothing more than for him to finish what he started, but he's the devil incarnate. And one doesn't make deals or fall in love with the devil.

If someone had told Chase he'd fall in love with a certain virgin when he was on his last mission, he would have shot them dead, sniper style. She was nothing more than collateral damage, damn it. But watching the sexy new spy morph into a bombshell killing machine is too much to bear. So when the powers that be command him to train her in the art of seduction for her first--and possibly last--mission, he's scared witless. Making love to Kate means preparing her for sex with another man.

Somehow, Chase has to find a way to get Kate in--and out--of her mission without dying. And without falling in love.

This book is an erotic romance. It contains graphic language, explicit, smokin' hot sex, menage, lots of juicy conflict, some suspense, a dark and dangerous spy boss and a spunky bombshell heroine.

Book 2—Spy Games: Lethal Limits, on sale for $.99 until August 23!

Secret Agent Jake Anderson would rather have the measles than love his best friend's wife. So when she gives him a mission--to find his own woman to love--he knows just the woman to target. Exotic beauty Tia Richards--his new partner--is wild, twisted, and has no limits when it comes to adventure, in bed and out. She's perfect for him. Now he just has to get Tia and his heart to agree. 

Sexy spy Tia Richards has a problem, and the solution is Jake. The last time they hooked up, he left her bound and begging, unfulfilled, so close to finally getting the fireworks she deserves. But Jake loves his former partner, and Tia refuses to be second best. Will she listen to the ache in her heart that whispers she has what it takes to be first in Jake's life, or will lethal limits separate them forever?

Contains: Explicit language, graphic, hot sex that tries to be vanilla and goes kinky, role play, anal sex, very light BDSM, light bondage, horses, a card shark spy hero and his twisted and wild heroine.

Book 3—Spy Games: Endgame. 

Sexy spy Charlotte Smith doesn't go by the code name Dragon Queen because she's sweet and cuddly. She's cold, hard, and mean and has been training for the past five years to take down the men who destroyed her soul and left her burning for revenge. But when she meets her next assignment at a wedding, her body protests there's much more to life than kicking asses and taking names. Actor Aaron James is witty, hot as hell, and he smells divine. But women with suicidal endgames don't indulge in casual sex, and they definitely don't fall in love.

Since meeting Charlotte at his brother's wedding, Aaron's life has been nothing but trouble. He's plagued by memories of the kiss he stole from her, and he senses underneath her aloof nature and frosty glare is a woman with passion and fire. When Charlotte is assigned as his bodyguard after a botched kidnapping attempt, he's psyched. What better way to get in her panties than have her pretend she's his girlfriend? Until Aaron realizes too late he wants more than into her panties...he want's Charlotte's heart.

Contains: Explicit language, really hot sex, anal sex, toys, light bondage, very light BDSM, a really hot actor and his kick-ass spy bodyguard. M/F

Release Day for The Shadow of Mudflap! To Benefit the Red Cross!

Best-selling author Christi Snow's latest novel 
The Shadow of Mudflap (A Foxtrot Team Novel) 
will release today, August 7, 2013! 

Best-selling author Christi Snow has teamed up with radio personality M.F. Smith to pen this heart-pounding adventure featuring romance, super spies and college football! What's even better is all proceeds will benefit the Lubbock, TX Chapter of The American Red Cross!

Go on over to Christi's blog to learn more about Christi and M.F.'s dedication and desire to help their community by creating this book to benefit an important charity! 

The Shadow of Mudflap (A Foxtrot Team Novel)

To us, first responders are heroes. 

But for them, risking their lives is a normal, everyday thing.

Born the baby of the family, Mudflap has always had something to prove to emerge out of the shadows of his older siblings. He spent eight years as a Special Ops elite sniper and is now a firefighter. But at his heart, he’s just a normal West Texas good old boy who loves his beer, women and football, until the Department of Defense calls him up to say they need his skills again.

Shanae is a first responder of a different sort. She’s a trauma nurse who works on a medical evacuation helicopter team. But while she lives a life full of adrenaline every day, it’s just a cover for her real life, where she hides in the shadows and is secret agent, Shadowfox for the Lubbock Foxtrot Team (LiFT). She’s living the kind of life that most people think exists only in movies and books.

Working for two different branches of the government, Mudflap and Shanae are in a race against time and the terrorists who threaten the very heart of West Texas life, football. They’re working toward the same goal, but find themselves in a confrontation against each other and the lies they’ve each had to hide behind. Can love win out in the end or will the cost be each other and their very lives?

First responders are heroes every day, but this story tells the tale of when they become even more and find love along the way. The key is for them to stay alive so that they can complete their mission and just maybe live happily ever after.

On an ordinary day, they save lives. On an extraordinary day, they save the country.
