A My Sexy Saturday Date Night

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a snippet for My Sexy Saturday, so I thought I’d kick off November with a date night snippet from To Growl or to Groan.

After we step out into the chilly night, I take Jorge’s hand. “So where are we going?”

He points to Adam and Fiona’s house. “You up for walking?”

“I think I can do a quarter mile.”

He offers me his arm with a wink. “My lady.” It’s the same thing he said the first time he led me to his bedroom to have sex. If nothing else, this night will probably end with that particular activity.

I take his arm and we walk out of the pool of the light over the porch. It’s a cold night, but clear. Snow crunches under our feet as we walk, our steps in sync. Through our connection, I feel his comfort walking next to me, and it reminds me of other walks we’ve taken at night. It’s good to have a boyfriend with a cat’s night vision.

Will he soon by my fiancée with a cat’s night vision? A thrill of anticipation runs through me. Underneath the ease of walking side by side, enjoying each other’s presence, I pick up a note of anticipation, or maybe even a bit of anxiety, from him too.

“I hope you don’t mind that our dinner is at my brother’s house. It’s practically impossible to find a private room on Christmas and I wanted us to be alone. I also know how much you love my cooking.”

She’s unready to face her past, but she may have no choice.

It may be her best friend who gets surprisingly accurate hunches about the future, but Chloe just  knows something big –and bad—is about to happen. She telepathically communicates with animals and shape-shifters, but her growing psychic abilities are beginning to scare her. She suspects her mother also had abilities, and when those powers grew beyond her control, she left her daughter and husband when Chloe was only ten.

Despite her worries, she won’t let anything interrupt her trip to Scotland to meet her shape-shifter boyfriend’s family. Meeting Jorge’s close-knit family and spending the Holidays with them is worry enough!

When his sister goes missing, her disappearance is linked to a shadowy organization that knows exactly how to hide her from her shape-shifting relatives’ tracking ability. What they don’t count on is Chloe’s psychic gift.

In the rush to find Jorge’s sister, Chloe loses control of her ability and accidentally harms an animal’s psyche. Ridden with guilt, she’s afraid her ability just might destroy her relationship with Jorge. She isn’t ready to find her mother and face her past, but she may not have a choice if she wants to ensure she never harms anyone again.

What readers are saying about To Growl or to Groan:

4* from Sizzling Hot Books: “If you like shapeshifters, some sexy romance, and a good mystery as well then I would definitely recommend To Growl Or To Groan.”

“I enjoyed reading more in this book about Chloe’s exploration of her abilities and past as well as her HOT relationship with Jorge. I will be looking for more from this author for sure. This book is a light and fun read with adventure, passion and a few unexpected twists and turns. Highly recommend reading this book.”

“I liked the twist with the shifter and non-shifter relationships in this book. It made it refreshing to read. I thought Katya Armock did a great job with the storyline and I was kept interested from the very beginning.”

Turns out there is some residual energy in me… #OurSexyYear

293a6-headerforlynn_sexysaturdayIt’s a celebration on this My Sexy Saturday, which has been going strong for a year now! This week I’m sharing a snippet from To Growl or to Groan, book 2 in the Hidden Lines series. It’s currently available as an ebook for only $3.99. Book 1 is still on sale for 99 cents.

He wastes no time taking care of me in another way since we’ve been waiting long enough on the train and then the taxi ride here, not to mention the time it took to check in. I’m so ready I can practically feel myself orgasming just from his touch.

When he runs his tongue up my slit and over my clit, I shudder and jerk up so hard most of my back loses contact with the bed. He’s going to fucking kill me with his tongue. That’s all it will take. Not that I’m complaining—at all.

His tongue continues its work with renewed vigor, laving my clit until I’m one tightly wound nerve centered under his tongue. Nothing else is reality but the connection happening at my core. I rise higher and higher toward the pinnacle where I will explode.

Then he adds a finger, two, and my screams are deafening. The profanity flies freely from my mouth so fast it’s impossible to understand what I’m saying. Not that I care.

He pulls back and I melt into the bed, my eyes closed, my body a pile of useless muscles. I’m sure I have no energy left in me. Not even an ounce.

He slides his body up mine, leaving a trail of wet kisses and a tingling warmth in the wake of his sensuous mouth and hands. His touch sparks me to life, my body writhing of its own accord, my hips rising to increase contact with his body.

Turns out there is some residual energy in me. My tongue traces a path from behind his ear to his shoulder, where I lightly nip him. His taste is exquisite, a blend of man and spice. He moans under my touch. I wrap my legs around him, pulling him closer to me. Any space is too much.

She’s unready to face her past, but she may have no choice.

It may be her best friend who gets surprisingly accurate hunches about the future, but Chloe just  knows something big –and bad—is about to happen.

Wednesday Words: Book Hook #MFRWhooks

MFRW Authors Blog

Today I’m participating in a new meme by Marketing for Romance Writers called Book Hook. It’s a great way to see short snippets from a bunch of romance authors.

Here’s a few sentences from my latest release To Growl or to Groan:

A shadow falls across me and I’m startled to realize a man stands right in front of me. He wears a robe that resembles tree bark, his face hidden under the hood.

A shiver dances down my spine. “Can I help you?”

A frail-looking hand closes my fingers around the pendulum. His fingers are frigid. “Beware, child. Power brings much temptation. Hold to your light, to your will…”

Blurb:

I dig my nails into his lower back and tug him closer. He leans in for a kiss before he raises his chest and picks up the pace. I open our connection and send him images of how I see him moving his powerful body undulating over me, pushing me to the edge of ecstasy.
