Contest!!! Come on...LET'S PLAY!


Okay, stayed up waaaay too late watching the historical presidential election last night. I was positively GLUED. It's a wonderful thing to watch democracy in action. So last night was a good night but today is good too. At least for me.

Today is release day for my Ellora's Cave quickie, Spanish Topaz. This is a paranormal menage set in Texas and features a smokin' hot cowboy, a sexy latina, and a man from the past who is in search of his lost love. So if your looking for a quick, hot read, pick this one up and be sure to tell me what you think.

In honor of the release, I'm giving away a download of the book along with a deck of Ellora's Cave playing cards. Entering is Easy Breezy. Head over to my web site.. http://www.reginacarlyle.com and look for my upcoming December titles. Choose one of the three listed there, come back HERE to Three Wicked Writers and mention the one that sounds best to YOU. I'll draw a name from the commenters and announce the winner FRIDAY. Today I'm also being featured at Playground Mystique and Alisha Paige's blog. Please stop by and check out my interviews.

Blurb:

Spanish Topaz

When rancher, Cash Carter gets sexy Latina, Graciela Fuentes back in his bed, he vows to keep her there. Whether it’s through the lure of hotter than hell sex or the intrigue to be found in an ancient topaz-studded dagger, he won’t let her go again. His body burns for hers but once she touches the handle of the dagger and Miguel de Castillo, a man from another time, manifests before them, Cash realizes Gracie’s soul may belong to another.

Miguel longs for a reunion with his long-dead bride and when he finds her soul residing in the body of the very modern Gracie, he’ll do anything to get her back. It becomes a race against time as Gracie gives her body to both men in order to reunite the lost lovers, hoping against hope she doesn’t lose her life or her love in the process.

Excerpt: (ADULT)

Cash Carter leaned against the frame of the open barn door and watched Graciela Fuentes barrel down the dirt road leading to the Classic Cash Ranch. She had a new car. A sassy little roadster that reminded him of her, sleek but rounded in all the right places. A rooster tail of dust shot out from behind the vehicle as it rocketed down the road. On either side of the snappy little car, his land stretched out like a rugged Texas jewel in the waning autumn sunlight.
She was home.
Thank god. That was all that mattered.
The weeks since he’d last seen her fell away and his cock hardened behind the well-worn fly of his jeans. Her memory rose up, hot and fluid, in his mind and as his mouth went dry, he swore he could still feel the taste of her nipple on his tongue. It was a rich memory that he’d never been able to shake, even after she left for college and then landed a job as a museum curator in Houston. They’d been lovers for those years, but time and distance was his enemy. He was damn sick of only having scarce visits to her apartment in Houston and her trips to central Texas were so seldom, he was left aching.
When he’d found the dagger two days ago, she was the only person he’d called. It was a deal that worked for him. He’d have answers and her all at the same time. Have her he would, too. The connection between them had always been electrifying and the month that had passed since he’d last had her hadn’t changed a damn thing about that.
Cash shifted his stance and walked further into the yard to meet her. His heart thumped hard in his chest as he waited and remembered. Lust crawled through his belly and the urge to fuck her sweet pussy seeped through his mind like an oft remembered dream. If circumstances hadn’t intervened a couple of days ago, he’d pretty much decided to head down to Houston and haul her sexy, Latina ass back where she belonged. For good.
Maybe it was the time of year that made him hard for her. Made him ache for her. The leaves on the trees had turned a smoldering gold that exactly matched her eyes. The simmering reds mingled among the golden leaves reminded him of her lush lips and the way they’d always taken his with a hunger unequaled in his experience.
Bottom line was the woman was so fucking hot she burned him to ash with every touch. She was a craving in his system and he was a happy addict.
When the source of his raging addiction, stopped her car not twenty yards from where he stood, he stiffened, unsure of her greeting, as she stepped from the little car and gave him a look, cocked a winged black brow and sent him a sexy smile. Odd that he noticed that seductive smirk since he could barely drag his gaze from the long length of leg she bared beneath the miniscule black skirt. A strip of her belly flashed from below her shorter-than-hell red tee. The woman was sex on a stick and his cock pulsed in reaction, grew in dimension and he had the crazy desire to lick her from the tips of her cute little toes to her mouth, stopping to savor every point in between.
“Hey, sweet thing,” he drawled.
Her smile widened as she sent her gaze zipping down then up the length of his body. Impossibly his erection pulsed stronger as the need to fuck her silly grew by immense proportions.
“Hola, querido. Miss me?”
“Every damn day.” Cash held out his arms and watched her go still. A flicker of intensity made her golden eyes go dark. He smiled, knowing he had her right where he wanted her. She’d missed him, too. “Come ‘ere, darlin’. If I don’t touch you right now, I swear I’m gonna die.”
And just like, that the darkness left her eyes and her smile widened as she laughed and raced headlong into his arms.

i like Breath of Magic im studing to be a lawyer

Regina Carlysle said...

Ohhhh, GOOD FOR YOU Angie. My husband is a lawyer who has been practicing in Texas for 24 yrs. It's interesting and exciting work. It's funny. For awhile I thought about law school myself but then I met my husband and thought...Okay. I must be meant to MARRY a lawyer instead of BECOME one. LOL. Those 'law school' years were CRAZY but exciting. We were poor but always knowing we were working together for something GOOD.

Breath of Magic is the first book in the Mistletoe Magic Series. Two other books will follow from authors Desiree Holt and Cindy Spencer Pape. Very exciting to do this project with them and of course, writing about lawyers came naturally to me. LOL

Kelley Nyrae said...

So excited to read this one, Reg. Congrats on the release. Have fun in the contest everyone!

Amy S. said...

Feral Moon sounds great! Congrats on the new release!

Anne Rainey said...

I just bought it, Regina! I opened it and read the first few pages, dang girl! You sure know how to start a book! I can't wait to add this to my ereader when it gets here! :)

Regina Carlysle said...

YAY, Anne! Hope you like it and thanks for picking it up.

Phoebe Jordan said...

Congrats on the new release! It sounds good and when I get my money at the end of the month it will be at the top of my wishlist to buy. I will also be looking out for your book Feral Moon because that is going to be one hot book.

BethRe said...

Feral Moon sounds like its right up my alley

Regina Carlysle said...

Mmm. Lots of Feral Moon mentions. This is a paranormal menage too and I actually wrote this one before writing Spanish Topaz.

Don't forget to check back Friday to see who the winner is.

Cathy said...

Happy release day, Regina. Like the blurb for Breath of Magic, plus I am a big fan of Desiree's and Cindy's stories too, and this looks like it will be a great series.

Regina Carlysle said...

The Mistletoe Magic series was fun to do with them and they are great great friends of mine. It's about three sisters coming together after the death of their parents. Some Christmas Elves get involved in reuniting each one with their lost loves. Elven Magic (a menage about the elves) comes out after these three. Very fun to write and it was a JOINTLY written book. Very hot. Needless to say, they aren't typical ELVES. HA

Anny Cook said...

Ah, you wicked girl. Excellent books all. Enjoy your release day!

Regina Carlysle said...

Hi Anny dear! Thanks so much.

flchen1 said...

How fun, Regina! I like the premise of Breath of Magic--I love stories where the characters have some history already! Congrats on today's release and all the ones you've got coming up! You've got a lot to celebrate!!

Connie Northrop said...

catedid said...

Congratulations on the release of "Spanish Topaz", Regina. I would love to read your "Tempting Tess" book. The plot of the story, older woman/younger man, appeals to me as I am getting older myself and can relate, ha,ha. Keep up the great writing!!

Elven Magic sounds unique as well as humorous! I like stories that are a little different! Sharon

Debby said...

Breath of Magic looks great to me.

Regina Carlysle said...

Thanks for checking out my titles everyone. Just a reminder. I'm blogging on Friday and I'll announce the winner of my contest then. I will continue to take entries until then.

Audrey M said...

Let's see. I read all three book samples, and while I love the shapeshifters I'm going with the Christmas elves. I adore this time of the year, and I am always looking for a new twist on an old favorite.

Elven magic is the one for me. Congrats on your newest release.

Fazed LeWinter said...

I love the way Feral Moon sounds, actually I love the way they all sound but that will have to be my first pick.

Congrats on your release!

lindseye said...

Well I love elves and it is releasing around Christmas so Elven Magic. But wait Feral Moon has shifters and kittys are always nice to cuddle with. Oh and then there is the magic story Breathe of Magic which also involves the holidays. Will I still be entered in the contest if I just say I am waiting on them all and should not be forced to choose just one?

Regina Carlysle said...

Ha. Lindseye! I looove the way you think, honey. Of course you're entered.

Julie Robinson said...

Feral Moon, without a doubt, is what first caught my eye. Then when I read the excerpt . . .Well, nuff said. Looks like a hot book for a cold December night:-)
