Vanessa Liebe Smuggler's Bounty

Tour Titles Blurb

Elizabeth Thornton is left all alone in Georgian England after losing her parents in a tragic accident, so she travels to Cornwall to live with her kindly, older, and very proper Aunt Judith. Soon, however, she begins to suspect her aunt of hiding something nefarious. Determined to learn the truth behind the strange goings on, she sets out on a quest for the truth. A quest that leads to danger, and trouble with the law, and a very handsome smuggler with a firm hand and smoldering, sexy eyes who is as determined to keep Elizabeth safe as she seems to be to put herself in harm's way.

William is growing tired of the smuggler's life of danger and instability. If he can just finish his last run, he can give it all up and finally settle down, find love, and start a family. But he already has a preventative officer hot on his heels who is determined to end his career and throw him in jail – or worse. The beautiful, headstrong Elizabeth is a complication he does not need. But she, too, is hot on his heels – and irresistible. Now he must avoid capture, and find time to discipline this woman with an appetite for adventure, who seems determined to steal his heart.

      Tour Titles Excerpt 

She closed the library door and immediately went over to the fireplace with her lantern.
She managed to light the candle in it with the tinder box she'd been given and then pulled on the fire poker once more. The entrance slid open and she ducked down to go inside. She was so keen to explore that she didn't consider that it might be dangerous, and simply stepped into the tunnel. There was a catch just inside the tunnel that closed the door behind her.
Elizabeth took a deep breath and walked forward with her lantern lighting the way. The tunnel was all wooden paneling at first and so she thought she must still be inside the house. But she soon came to some steps that led a long way down. Then she had to be careful, holding the lantern and her skirts up around her as she made her way carefully down them. When she reached the bottom, the walls were roughly hewn rock and she felt that thrill of adventure again as she realized that she must be underground somewhere.
Elizabeth was so preoccupied with her thoughts that it was a complete shock when she was suddenly grabbed from the side. She dropped her lantern with a shriek and the glass casing smashed. The candle sputtered out and she was left in complete darkness with the man who had grabbed her. He covered her mouth to stop her cries and held her tightly against him.
Elizabeth kicked and struggled in panic before biting hard into the hand that covered her mouth. The man swore but held onto her.
"Curiosity killed the cat, sweetness," the man purred into her ear, causing her neck hairs to stand on end. "And if you bite me again you little hell cat, I'll bite back."
She shivered in fear, and something else she'd rather not admit to, at the sound of that voice. It was the handsome smuggler from last night - the leader. Although Elizabeth was scared of what he might do with her for meddling, she hoped that she could reason with him, especially if she let him know who her aunt was. However, all coherent thought stopped as he ran a hand over her body.
"I'd better check you for weapons." It was whispered into her ear and she gasped as her nipples tightened in response to him. His hand ran quickly over her chest, briefly squeezing her full breasts through her gown and she was almost disappointed that it didn't linger. Instead it moved quickly down, over her stomach and then back up over each of her arms.
"Do I need to check under your skirts, girl? Do you have a weapon strapped to a shapely leg perhaps?"
Elizabeth gulped and shook her head violently. Please don't let him check there.
He removed his hand from her mouth so that she could speak.
"No." Her voice came out as a squeak. "Please… I haven't got any weapons."
For a moment the man just held her against his hard chest and she felt like swooning.
He was so overwhelming. But then he pulled her into a strange little niche in the rocks that had been converted into a small room. He let her go while he shut the door behind him. The room was well lit by candles and she saw a desk strewn with papers in front of her before she whirled around to face him. She looked at him defiantly then almost gasped aloud at the devastating effect of the man up close. He really was gorgeously made.

"What are you going to do with me?" she asked nervously, licking her lips and unintentionally drawing his eyes to their moist softness.

New Release Tour: Sabotaged Desires by @RebeccaAiries #SciFi #Menage @SensuousPromos @RedSagePublish

Suz Lore thought she had everything she wanted, a job as an engineer and a position on a colony ship headed to another planet. That was before her arranged ménage marriage with Robert Smith and David Bradford turned into a disaster. She’d thought they were building more than a sizzling sexual relationship, but all they do is argue now. She isn't surprised when they're sequestered in a room in order to reignite the passion between them and learn to trust again. Robert believes she betrayed him while David is stuck in the middle of their conflict. Getting Robert to talk about what made him angry is difficult, but they discover there's far more behind their problems than a message with misleading information. A virus has overtaken the ship's computers, put them on a different heading and cut them off from all communication. They must work together to find a way to survive and rebuild their relationship.

Excerpt (Rated PG)

“Because I thought before I reacted to that inflammatory message. On top of that, this isn’t new to me. My brothers somehow managed to develop completely opposite personalities and fought almost every time they saw each other.” David walked over to stand near Susanne. “I also realized that that message could have just as easily been about me.”
“What do you mean it could have been about you?” Suz frowned. Did he mean that he also had someone influential in his family, or was there something else in the message that could apply to him?
“I mean that my family might not be powerful, but my father has a couple of powerful friends. If your friend had sent that message about me, would you react as strongly as you have to her? Or is it simply because you were fucking her, maybe beginning to have feelings for her?” David raised an eyebrow as he looked over at Robert.
“It wasn’t about you, so I don’t know. As for my reaction, there’s nothing to think about. Everything in that note was clear.” Robert shook his head.
“The one fact in the message may have been true, but that doesn’t mean that it was all true. You never asked me a single question. Even when we’re in this room and won’t get out without some type of resolution, you sit there in judgment with only one side of the story.” She rolled to the side of the bed and stood.
Anger pounded through her. Her heartbeat raced and she knew that her face was probably red. She tried to calm down. David put a hand on her arm. His fingers squeezed. When she looked over at him, she saw him smile. She appreciated the support.
“You expect me to believe that you’re innocent?” He raised a brow and the sneer on his lips clearly conveyed doubt and distaste.
As she stared at Robert, her own anger surged forward. Why the hell had he jumped to this conclusion? And why was it so black and white? She was either guilty or innocent. There had to be more than anger behind this.
Her control snapped. This tantrum had gone on long enough. While she understood his initial reaction, she shouldn’t let him continue, even if she had to tie him down and gag him. Something had happened in his past, but she wouldn’t let that deter her. Emotion pushed energy through her clearing away the remaining sleepiness. She rounded the bed and stood in front of him.
“I know I’m not the type of woman you would choose and you’re the last man I’d pick. That’s fine. But if you want answers, if you plan to get out of this damn box anytime soon, you’ll have to ask me the questions. After everything you’ve done, I won’t volunteer any information.”
Both Robert and David looked at her as if they were stunned for a moment. Alright, maybe they had a reason for that. She might not have responded much to any of his baiting earlier, but his continued stubbornness, even when they were in a situation where they had to find a way to fix their problems, infuriated her.
David grinned. “He does take an adjustment to your thinking, doesn’t he? Such a sweet personality, too.”
“What? You’re not going to tell her to sit down and listen?” Robert scowled.

“I’m surprised she hasn’t snapped at you before.” David rounded the bed and stopped next to her. “I don’t think he’s ready to ask any questions, yet. Not the polite way.”

New Release Tour: A Nightmare Come True (Nightmares 1) by @SageMarlowe #MM #PNR @ServicesbyNic

Dreams can come true—but sometimes nightmares are very real, too. 

When Michael—Mikey—Fawkes bags himself a job as a handyman for a film production company and meets his favourite actor, gay porn star Colin Meighan, he believes his dream has come true. Colin indeed appears to be a dream turned to flesh. Handsome, young and as insatiable sexually as the roles he plays suggest, he makes his way into Mikey’s bed and introduces him to unknown carnal pleasures. 

A slick lover and sweet talker, Colin also finds a place in Mikey’s heart, but as Mikey lets his new lover lure him deeper and deeper into a world of decadent on and off-screen sex, their indulgences begin to take their toll on Mikey. Curious to find out more about the strange and inexplicable effect Colin has on his sex partners, Mikey discovers that there is a terrible reason why one man alone can never be enough to satisfy Colin’s hunger and he realises that dreams can come true—but sometimes nightmares are very real, too. 

Reader advisory: This is the first book in a series with an ongoing story arc. It is best enjoyed as part of the series in order of release. Contains mild BDSM, M/M/M/M/M sex and MCs that have sex with secondary characters. Revised edition. 

Excerpts: A Nightmare Come True (Nightmares 1) by Sage Marlowe
Copyright © Sage Marlowe, 2013/2016

Excerpt 1: Meeting Colin
The inside of the building kept the promise its outside had given. Bare stone walls, naked, chipped and paint-stained concrete floors and cheap, too bright overhead lights. I was a guy and it didn’t take much to get me in the mood, but somehow I’d imagined the location for a porn film shoot to have just a tad more of a sexy atmosphere.
I was one of the first to arrive. There was another guy with a ponytail who was busy glaring at his smartphone, two cameramen and one man who was taping a large microphone to a rod.
“Hi there,” I greeted no one in particular and no one in particular responded. The only replies I got from the four men were muffled grunts and a mumbled “Hello.”
I went to the man with the ponytail. “Hi, I’m Mike. Mike Fawkes.”
Tapping away on his phone, he barely looked up. “Peter Evans. Call me Pete. I’m the producer-slash-director-slash-casting agent. Any questions, talk to me.”
“Yeah, all right.” I let my gaze travel across the run-down film set. A super king-size bed was tucked into a corner, which was probably for the best as it didn’t look inviting. Its stripped mattress wore a multitude of stains in different shades—fading scars that had been earned in countless battles. An old-fashioned but large sofa sat in the middle of the room, its faded green corduroy covering threadbare in places. No, they didn’t put much effort into an appealing location. “So, this is where the action’s gonna happen, huh?” I observed, mainly just to say something.
Pete glanced at me. The corners of his eyes were wrinkled in a half-smile. “Yeah. You’re early.”
“Well, yes. I figured it might be better if I came early.”
A soft chuckle right behind me made my back tingle. “Sweetheart, in this business it’s never good to come early.”
Pete looked past me and grinned. “You took the words right out of my mouth. Hi, Colin. You’re a bit early yourself.”
“Yeah, I know,” Colin drawled. He moved past me and leaned in to Pete who tilted his head. For a moment I thought he’d kiss him full on the mouth, then Colin turned the motion into a quick peck on the cheek, but it was too late.
A scene from the film I’d watched last night in anticipation of the meeting interfered with reality and a dirty fantasy began to unwind in my mind. I imagined Colin greeting me with a kiss, only that ours would be open mouths and tongue-touching and all. Blood shot into my dick, fast enough to make me dizzy. Fool that I was, I’d come prepared to meet the star of my dreams, but nothing had prepared me for Colin’s enormous sex appeal. On camera he was sexy as sin, off camera he was Viagra on legs. He wore tight-fitting, ripped blue jeans and a pale grey, long-sleeved T-shirt. The fabric of the latter was so soft that it not only hugged the curves of his pectoral muscles—I could also easily make out the shape of the nipple piercing underneath.
“I spent last night at someone else’s place and it seemed easiest to just come here straight away,” Colin told Pete in a conversational tone.
Pete smirked. “Ah, that explains the good mood.”
Colin tugged his shirt in place, not that it had needed it, and picked at the hem. “Guess so,” he mumbled.
“Everything okay?” Pete asked, suddenly sombre as he looked at Colin with an inquisitive gaze.
“Yeah, everything’s all right. It just wasn’t quite what I expected.”
Pete raised his eyebrows. “Meaning?”
Colin opened his mouth, then glanced at me and made a face in the split second it took him to turn back to Pete. He sighed. “Meaning it didn’t really fill my…cravings. I hope today will be better.”
“I’m sure it will be,” Pete said and patted Colin’s shoulder. “We can start as soon as your partner is here.”
“Great. Still have to take a shower, though. I’ll be back in a bit.”
“Don’t take too long, gorgeous. You don’t want to keep your co-star waiting, do you?”
“Not at all. Just send him in to fetch me,” Colin said and took off his T-shirt, revealing his perfectly drool-worthy torso. The silver stud in his left nipple caught the light and gleamed. I wanted to lick it and find out how the metal felt where it was warmed by his skin. Instead I bit my lip, hoping that the pain would distract my cock so the throbbing erection I had would ease off.
Pete smirked. “Don’t think so, Col. I don’t want you to be all worn out before we start.”
“No worries there. I’m all up to go for a while.” Colin tossed his shirt on the chair next to him, then jerked his head in my direction. “That him?”

Following Colin’s indication, Pete glanced at me. His assessing gaze made me feel like a horse at an auction, and I remembered that he’d introduced himself as the casting agent, among all the other jobs. He shot me a wink and turned back to Colin. “Nah. He’s a cutie, gotta give him that, but he’s just the new handyman.
