Janus 14-15

Janus was the Roman god of gateways and beginnings. He had two faces, but on him they were a good thing. One face looked back, contemplating the road just traveled, and the other face looked forward, dreaming about the future.

Kiss Me Goodnight cover

Kiss Me By Moonlight

2014 was a good year for me. It saw the release of two mainstream romances, the Kiss Me series, easily two of the best stories I’ve ever written. Critics loved them, though they didn’t sell very well. Oh well–they were a labor of love, and I remain devoted to Lacey and Dylan. Their story made me laugh and cry, and their journey was equally heartwarming and heartwrenching.

2014 saw the launch of my own small press, Lost Goddess Publishing. At present, I’m keeping it small. I’ve taken on two other authors to publish, and that means I’ve transitioned to editor as well as writer. I don’t think that job is for everybody, but I turned out to be surprisingly good at helping authors flesh out their stories. And I’m a whiz with commas. I wasn’t always able to claim that title. Working with Nicoline Tiernan has been great. (No, she’s not me, but she is one of my closest friends.) Her writing and her style have evolved a lot in the past year. If you like MM and haven’t picked up Tristan’s Lover yet, you’re really missing out. I’ve also begun an occasional blog series called Dirty Grammar, where I discuss grammar while using examples from adult scenes.

Tristan's Lover 5002014 also saw the first of my backlist returned to me. Loose Id returned Re/Bound to me. I tightened it up a bit, mostly tinkering with the ending to make that last scene work better. It finally clicked, and the Amazon reviews for it skyrocketed from 12 to 30. As it’s available for lending on Kindle, it’s not available for sale through other venues. It was briefly nominated for the Golden Flogger award until the person who nominated it (who runs the conference) discovered it was originally published in 2012, and so it was disqualified. Ah, well. It was an honor to have been briefly nominated. Re/Bound is one of my favorite novels, and I’m just happy people are enjoying it.

ReBound-FJM_Low_Res_500x750Janus also looks forward, so here’s what I have planned for 2015–

January-February-March will see the launch of my new menage series, Dragon Kisses. Right now it’s a trilogy, but my beta readers have used strong language to indicate the series should continue. The premise behind it is science fiction-ish: Five humans wake up one morning to find they’ve been transported to a world where dragon shifters (Zmaj) keep humans as sex slaves. They feed on human sexual energy. Book 1 is told through Cassie and Niall’s eyes. We get to know the new world and the dragon culture. Both Cassie and Niall fall in love with the dragons who claimed them, and of course they balk at the idea of being sex slaves. The menage part comes from my scientific mind: There’s no way a 600-pound dragon can shift into one person. That ignores the law of conservation of mass. Six-hundred pounds can shift into 4-5 humanoid shapes, and so each dragon shifts into 3-5 aspects. The aspects may have separate bodies, but they function as one person. It’s quite an interesting concept that I hope you’ll come to enjoy as much as my beta readers did.

Book 2 follows Arabella, who is captured when a rival group of dragons raid the human settlement next to Zmaj. She has amnesia, and though Tobin initially lies to her about their relationship, they eventually fall in love–and that puts them both in danger from the Inamanida King, who treats humans as disposable flesh. This story also follows Jonathan, a man who was born on Zmaj and finds his world turned upside down when it’s revealed that his biological father was a dragon. Not only does he have to contend with coming of age and becoming a shifter, but he must deal with Laurel–the woman he likes who is terrified of dragons.

Book 3 brings all those storylines together. Arabella and Tobin are in Zmaj, where they’ve fled. Attack from the Inamanida is imminent. Not only do they want revenge on Tobin, but they want to destroy the Zmaj warriors who are protecting the few humans on the planet. Laurel is forced to confront her fears and her feelings for Jonathan. Cassie and Niall’s lives are put on the line as well. I meant for this to be the conclusion of the story, but some things happened that I hadn’t foreseen, and it leaves things open for more to the stories.

2015 will see the return of five Siren-Bookstrand titles to me. Some will be revised and re-released. Others will go away forever. Lettting Go should come back to me in February. As my first published novel, it hold an extremely special place in my heart. It will go away for a couple of months as I get ready to relaunch it. I’ve already done a lot of revisions to make it fit my original vision, and I’ve added parts in response to readers who’ve written me about it. I’ll also get back Hanging On, Irrepressible Force, Tomorrow Cries (under another name), and Two Masters for Samantha. I’m pretty sure I’m getting some Loose Id titles back–Re/Paired and perhaps the Oasis series (though there may be another year on that contract.)

2015 will also see the third book in the Doms of the FBI series finally come out. I’ve been sitting on that one for two years because, as I’ve realized, writing while under the influence of a concussion isn’t the best idea in the world. It’s been majorly overhauled, and at last I have the story I want. Call me picky, but you’ll be glad for that when you finally read it! I’ve already begun brainstorming book 4 in that series. Amy will finally get her happy ending.

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year! I hope it’s the best one yet!

Love, Michele

Cerra’s Choice by Nicoline Tiernan

The last of the Lovin’ U shorts is out! Nicoline Tiernan completes her quartet with Cerra’s Choice, the story of a college woman who decides she doesn’t have to choose between the two men who want her.

Final Cerra's Choice 500Summary: Why choose one boyfriend when you can have two? Cerra has fallen for both Liam and Blake. When she tells them she wants them both, will they try it out once or stick around for the long haul?

Warnings: MFM, MM elements

Word Count: 5739

Excerpt:

She lifted her shoulders and let them drop. There was no way they were expecting this. “I have made a decision. I want you both.”

Confused silence. Blake and Liam exchanged puzzled looks. Liam spoke first. “What does that mean—you want us both?”

“I mean I’m in love both of you. Liam, you’re the person I call when I’m stressed and freaking out. Blake, you’re the one I call when I’m upset. I love hanging out with both of you, together and separately. You’re both essential to me, but for different reasons. I can’t imagine having one without the other. When I picture the perfect man, it’s a split screen with both of your faces.” These were not the words Cerra had rehearsed, but what poured forth was heartfelt and desperate. This was a definite gamble, and her heart was on the line. “Both of you complete me.”

Liam’s mouth compressed in a frown. He leaned back and looked away.

Blake frowned as well, but his attention never wavered. “Are you saying that Liam gets you on Friday nights, and I get you on Saturday?”

Cerra shook her head. “I want you both to have me together. Sure, I’ll want time with just you or Liam, but mostly I want you both at the same time.”

Warnings: May-December romance

Word Count:  47,043

Excerpt:

In the water, Randal didn’t act like an invalid. Those piercing blue eyes sparkled and his body was ripped, better than any guy Tessa had dated. The man was damn sexy, and in the week she’d known him, she’d grown to like him—maybe too much. Way too much. Aside from a few thin, pink scar lines over his knees, no one would have believed he was living in a wheel chair.

He trapped her against the side of the pool and held her prisoner between his arms.

She turned and faced him. Now she stared into those beautiful blue orbs and caught the grin that crinkled the skin at the outer edges of his eyes. “You have the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen.”

“And you have a beautiful body.”

She inhaled as he drew himself nearer. His breath flowed over her face. She closed her eyes and she prayed he’d kiss her.

A finger touched her jaw, and she opened her eyes. He was inches from her with a warm smile on his face. Heaving in a deep breath, she hoped to cool the sensation building in her, but she couldn’t stop it. She tried to imagine his lips on hers. His finger traced her entire face, including her lips. She parted her mouth and touched her tongue to his roaming finger.

“Damn woman. You’re giving me an erection.”

She cast her gaze toward his trunks but she couldn’t stop the grin that was pulling on the edges of her lips.

His finger went down her neck and followed the edge of her bikini top. Her chest rose with his touch. Heat flowed through her, settling between her legs. She had never been one to have casual sex, but she was not a virgin. Right now, she wanted fulfillment. She tried to tell herself that older men weren’t usually capable of sexual intercourse, but somehow she figured this man was quite capable. His fingers splayed over her breast. And a moan escaped from someplace deep in her throat. She wanted to wrap her legs around his waist and pull him closer to her.

She pushed past him and headed for the stairs. She had to get a grip on her feelings because inside she felt as though she was about to shatter into a million pieces.Tessa meme 500

He followed her. “Tessa, I’m sorry if I’ve offended you. I meant no harm.”

She turned and touched her fingers to his lips. “We’re adults.”

“Don’t leave. I won’t do it again. But seeing you has awakened something inside of me.”

“Yeah. I know that feeling.” She walked up the stairs and found a towel before turning back to him. “Do you need help getting out?”

“No, not yet. I need to swim some more. I try to swim every morning that I don’t have therapy. You just aren’t here. So to answer your question, yes, I can get in and out by myself.”

She settled onto a chaise lounge and watched him in the water. He was as graceful as a dolphin as he swam lap after lap. She couldn’t help but admire his body. Even his legs had beautiful muscle definition. Inside, she still quaked. There was something about him—something dangerously sexy, and she felt it to her toes.

After another twenty minutes or so, he pulled himself out of the water and onto his wheelchair. Silver hair was plastered to his chest, legs, and arms. The navy blue trunks left little to the imagination.

“You can stand?”

“Of course. But I’m not supposed to be on my feet. Actually, it hurts like hell, which is why my daughter hired you. I tried to do too much too soon, then wound up falling and doing more damage. That set me back a few months, as I had to have another round of surgery.” His hands gripped the outer wheels of his chair, and he headed toward the house.

“Need help?”

He shot her a wicked grin. “Not unless you want to help me get naked.”

She cocked her head as what he said sank in. “Oh. I’m a broke student, but I’m not a whore.”

He rolled to where she was sitting and grabbed her foot. “I didn’t think you were.”

His fingers caressed the bottom of her feet, and she attempted to stifle another moan. “I’m not a toy.”

“As I said, I didn’t think you were.”

His hands made their way further up her legs, massaging each little inch of flesh. Slow and gentle, it felt wonderful. He inched higher, and she put her hand down to stop him. He captured her hand in his and began to tenderly knead each finger, then her palm.

“You’re tense. You need to relax.”

​She swallowed and closed her eyes. Her very fiber was being torn apart. Part of her told her to stop him, and the other part greedily wallowed in his sexual attention. The self-indulgent part was winning. Heat swirled through her system and caused her nipples to bead. Then she felt his lips on her palm. She squirmed when her labia twitched. His lips made their way up her arm to her neck. Tiny kisses, little nips, and an occasional swirl of his tongue graced her skin.

Never before had she had a man touch her in such a way. She moaned as he nibbled on her earlobe. She knew she was horny, and he was pushing all the right buttons to ramp her desire.

Excerpt:

Tristan charged, narrowly avoiding the creatures claws as he flipped over and onto the beast’s back. He grabbed a tangle of fur and held on. The creature bucked and spun, but Tristan wouldn’t be shaken. The animal changed its tactics and began to roll. Tristan clasped his arms around its chest and wrapped his legs around its waist.

Tristan managed to wrangle the beast into a half Nelson, but the rolling continued. Tristan laughed as the two  careened into trees, through bushes, and began to pick up speed as they traveled downhill. The ride came to a sudden stop when they smashed into a rock wall, and the two tumbled apart.

“That was awesome,” shouted Tristan. “We should run up the hill and do it again.” He suggested this as he reached down and pulled out a branch that had wedged between his ribs. The skin instantly closed around the wound. Tristan laughed as he attempted to dust off what was left of his torn pants.

The Lycan rose to its full height and began to transform back into human form. Standing before Tristan was a young man in his early twenties—dark hair, well-toned body, and completely naked.

“You know if you wanted to get me out of these pants, you could have just asked,” chided Tristan. He unbuttoned the jeans and tossed them aside so he was left standing in his boy shorts.

“You suck,” said the man.

“Only if you ask nicely,” said Tristan while he batted his eyelashes.

The man jumped at Tristan and pinned his arms and back against the rock. “They would have killed you if they’d caught you.”

“Relax, Eric. They’ll never catch me.”

Eric grabbed Tristan by the throat. “You don’t get it. This isn’t a game,” he growled.

“It is if you play it right.” Tristan smirked.

Eric kissed Tristan hard on the mouth. “What am I going to with you?”

“I can think of at least a dozen things you can do.” Tristan’s underwear suddenly felt very tight.

“Take those off,” Eric commanded pointing to Tristan’s shorts.

“I don’t feel like it.” Tristan said.

Eric’s fingers transformed into giant claws, and then he tore at the underwear with surgical precision until they were shreds upon the forest floor.

“Seriously, those were Egyptian cotton, fifty dollars a pair,” Tristan sighed.

“Bill me,” said Eric. He grabbed Tristan and kissed him.

Tristan pushed him away. “This is the most expensive date I’ve ever been on,” he said.

“Who said this was a date?” Eric seized Tristan’s hair and pulled his head back. He kissed him roughly.

Tristan pushed him away. “Easy cowboy. At least buy me dinner first.”

“Shut up,” commanded Eric. He shoved Tristan back against the rock wall and pinned him up against it.

“I thought you said this wasn’t a date,” said Tristan.

“Don’t you ever shut up?” sighed Eric.

“You know how you can shut me up,” said Tristan suggestively.

“Get on your knees,” ordered Eric.

He dropped to his knees and stuck Eric’s enormous cock in his mouth. He sucked greedily while Eric moaned. Tristan slid his mouth up and down on Eric’s shaft while his tongue played around the tip of his lover’s uncircumcised cock.

“That’s it,” shouted Eric. “I’m gonna come so hard.” As Eric grew more excited, he grabbed the back of Tristan’s head and drove Tristan’s mouth deeper onto his cock.

Tristan was thankful that he never had much of a gag reflex. He took Eric’s full shaft from tip to base again and again. Eric howled loudly as he shot his hot cum down Tristan’s throat. Tristan took the entire load easily. Eric shuddered and leaned on Tristan’s shoulders.

“That was fucking amazing,” moaned Eric. He pulled Tristan off his knees and kissed him. “That made you hard didn’t it, baby?” asked Eric as he grabbed Tristan’s erect cock. “Give me a second,” said Eric as he suddenly transformed into his lycan form. He held Tristan’s dick in his hairy, clawed paw when he whipped Tristan around and shoved his massive wolf cock into Tristan’s ass. Eric pumped in and out slowly while his paw slid up and down Tristan’s cock.

Switching Sides

Becoming an editor has been a curious and interesting journey. I have the requisite skills–a BA in English and a MA in Literacy were just a start. I’ve worked with some fantastic editors over the past five years, the length of time I’ve been involved in the publishing world. I’ve learned loads from them, and I’ve put those skills to use.

As a writer, I have waited anxiously for weeks to receive manuscripts back from an editor, and when I got them, I’d tear into them zealously. Some edits I’d cringe at–especially if they required difficult decisions–and other times I’d marvel at my editor’s brilliance.

As an editor, I waited anxiously for my authors to send back each round of edits so I can see what kind of magic they worked.

Now that I’ve been on both sides of that coin, I can truly understand and appreciate the teamwork that goes into helping each manuscript reach its full potential. It’s an exciting adventure, and I’m enjoying every step.

Release Day: Cooper’s Challenge

Nicoline Tiernan has a new release!

Final Cooper's Challenge 500Cooper’s math T.A. makes him think about more than equations, but when Kate hauls out a vibrator to finish the job, Cooper realizes he’s not the stud he thought he was. Will she be open to tutoring him in more than math?

Warnings: MF, sex toys, college boy learning to do it right

Word Count: 6354

Excerpt:

Kate trembled in his arms, so he clasped her to him as he rolled to the side. He liked to cuddle after sex. It maintained that feeling of closeness. In this case, he wanted to see Kate again, so cuddling was good currency for swaying her in that direction.

Except she pushed his arms away. He didn’t take it personally. They’d worked up a sweat, and she was probably hot. He gave her space. She reached into a box on her bedside table and drew out a vibrator.

Cooper had seen them before, but he’d never had a lover brandish one. Puzzled that she would bring it out, he watched her drizzle lube over it and turn it on. Then she put it between her legs. She drew it through her folds a few times, pressing it to her clit, and then she slid it inside her pussy.

At this point, he felt slighted. Hadn’t he just rocked her world? “What are you doing?”

“Finishing.” She adjusted the angle and pumped it into her faster. “You didn’t quite get me there.”

Miranda and Those Holland Boys

Club Alegria #6 is here! Miranda and Those Holland Boys continues the series where those Holland Boys find love one menage at a time. This one is a little longer than the others at 6653 words.

 

Here’s the blurMiranda 500b:

Accountant Miranda has a knack for messing up her computer. When handsome Jeremy Holland shows up to fix it, she can’t hide her interest. Jeremy is entranced by the gorgeous woman he’d shared a dance with months before, and he hopes his love of menage doesn’t scare her away.

 

Warnings: MFMMM, MF, bondage, exhibitionism, four smoking hot brothers who work together and share.

Excerpt:

When she returned with an extra cup for Elena, she found a familiar man sitting at her computer, and her friend was nowhere around. With sculpted cheekbones, short blond curls, and clear blue eyes that twinkled with mirth, calling him handsome was an understatement. A step closer removed the cubicle wall as an barrier, and she took a moment to enjoy his amazing body. There was no way this man was from tech support. He was neither geeky nor awkward, and his muscles marked a man of action, the kind who could throw her over his shoulder and carry her up the stairs to throw her on the bed and…

Miranda shook away the images that were growing more pornographic as she pictured his mouth closing over her nipple. She’d met him several months before at a retirement party for three members of the nursing staff. They’d danced, and she figured he’s lost a bet because he’d looked everywhere but at her the entire time, and the conversation had been stilted.

“Hi,” she said. “Can I help you?”

He smiled, and the sparkle in his eyes turned impish. “Miranda St. James, I’ve come to save the day.”

Movies of the ways he could rescue her day wouldn’t stop playing in her brain. She frowned, more at them than at him. “Help me? How?”

He gestured toward her computer. “You’ve put in sixteen work orders for this machine in less than two months.”

She set her coffee on her desk and leaned against the edge. “Are you the computer fairy, come to replace this antiquated machine with something newer?”

He chuckled uncertainly. “Computer fairy? I’ve never been called that before. I’m Jeremy Holland, Quality Assurance Engineer. That’s a fancy way of saying you’ve broken this thing so many times, the boss has come to fix it.”

Miranda hedged. “I didn’t break it. The darn thing hates me.”

This time Jeremy looked her up and down. “I find it hard to believe that anything could hate you. Besides, computers don’t have feelings. They react to stimuli, that’s all.”

So did she, and the way he undressed her with a simple look was almost too much stimulation for her. It had been too long since she’d gone on a date, not that she was trolling for one at work. Besides, this guy was out of her league. He was hot and built, and she was currently engaged in a love affair with caramel-filled chocolate. He was a tech wizard, and she had was cursed when it came to the darn machines.

“Well, if the stimulation is when I lay a hand on the thing, then I must have one hell of an explosive touch.”

Things got awkwardly silent, and Miranda became embarrassingly aware of the innuendo in her assessment. Heat rode a bullet train up her neck and settled in her cheeks. Thankfully Jeremy only smiled, those sensual lips curving up with mirth. “Why don’t you tell me what happened, and we’ll see what kinds of bombs you’re setting off in the hard drive?”

Release Day: Ivy’s Geek

Final Ivy's Geek 500The geek in the room next door is Ivy’s dream. Driven together because Clay’s roommate always has a sock on the door, will Ivy finally confess to the crush she’s nurtured for a whole semester?

Warnings: m/f, sexy geek who takes his time to do it right

Word Count: 6526

Excerpt:

The knock came at the expected time. For the past fifteen minutes, Ivy had been listening to the headboard in the next room bang against the wall. On days like this, Clay came over to hang out while his manwhore of a roommate finished getting it on with his flavor of the week. She double-checked her reflection to make sure nothing was out of place. Her straight, wheat-brown hair spilled tamely down her back, and the light dusting of makeup she’d used wasn’t very noticeable, but it brought out the green in her eyes. She put on some lip balm, and then she opened her door.

“Hi, Clay. Come on in. Cooper’s in rare form today. She sounds like an ape.”

Clay huffed out a laugh as he set his backpack on the floor next to the futon sofa. “Or he does. I don’t know why he has to do this when he knows I’m coming back from class.”

Ivy shrugged and sat on the sofa, curling her legs under her bottom. She didn’t mind Cooper’s timing because it meant she got to spend some time with Clay. His tall, thin build and his wire-rimmed glasses landed him on the geek side of the equation, and his flyaway, straw-colored hair kept him there. Though he was on the lean side, Ivy knew he had great bone structure, and he’d fill out in the next couple of years. She could see both his inner beauty and the handsome devil he’d become—though she thought he was pretty hot as-is.

Clay settled next to her, leaning his head along the back of the sofa and closing his eyes.

“Were you up late?”

“Had a physics test today. I aced it.”

Ivy smiled, and Clay opened his eyes as he threw her a similar look. “Congratulations. I’m not looking forward to taking that class.”

“Don’t worry.” He set his hand on top of hers, which gave her a thrill because her hand was on her thigh—and that meant he was touching her thigh. “I’ll help you.”

“It’s all math, isn’t it?”

“Mostly.”

A particularly vicious thump banged the wall behind them. Both Ivy and Clay turned to see if damage had been caused, and the thump came again. This time, a loud moan accompanied it. Ivy knelt up on the sofa and pressed her ear to the wall. The girl made oh-oh-oh noises, and the apelike grunts punctuated her feminine sounds.

Ivy looked to see that Clay had done the same thing, only he faced her. They watched one another as they listened to Cooper entertain some lucky girl. Her sounds came louder and faster, and so did the banging. The crescendo followed rather quickly, and the noises subsided.

Clay sat back on the sofa, shaking his head. “For a second, I wondered if he was going to plow a path through the wall.”

“That sounded amazing.” Ivy sank down next to him, not bothering to hide the wistfulness in her voice that was probably reflected in her eyes.

He snorted. “Not really. She didn’t climax.”

Ivy gaped at him. “How can you say that? You could hear her as well as I could. I think the whole floor heard her.”

Clay shook his head. “She enjoyed it, sure, but she didn’t come.”

Even if she were inclined to argue, Ivy had nothing with which to compare it. “How can you tell? I mean, Cooper obviously can’t.”

“Experience.”

Ivy regarded him, stunned. She would have pegged him for a virgin.

Clay blushed. “I have four older brothers. Our parents were gone for a week in December when we were home for break. One of my brothers had his girlfriend there, and my other brothers listened whenever they got loud and critiqued his performance. When my brother’s girlfriend heard what they were saying, she laughed and told them they were right.”

“What were they right about?”

“That she was enjoying it, but she wasn’t having orgasms. So my brother did a little research—so did I—and for the rest of the week, his girlfriend went around with the biggest smile on her face.” Clay shrugged. “Girls are too nice to tell a guy he needs to do it harder, faster, or move a little to the left.”

Ivy thought about it. “I think if we like a guy enough to sleep with him, we don’t want to hurt his feelings.”

Clay put his hand over hers again. “Guys who really care about a girl want to know the best way to please you. We can’t do that without feedback.”

Ivy studied his hand. She’d been resting hers on the sofa, so he wasn’t touching her leg. “Have you ever made a girl come like that?”

“Not yet.”

Ivy admired his confidence—it wasn’t a matter of if, but when. When she looked up, she found Clay regarding her intensely. “What?”

“I’d like to make you come like that.”

New Release from LGP: Daisy and Those Holland Boys

Club Alegria #5 is here! Those Holland boys are at it again, and this time Toby’s heart is on the line.

That's Michele Zurlo's paddle on the cover.
That’s Michele Zurlo’s paddle on the cover.

Daisy has nursed a crush on Toby Holland for some time. One night at Club Alegria, her friend Nora suggests that she join her and the Holland brothers for some hot menage fun. Toby has liked Nora for a while, but asking out a woman he’ll want to share with his brothers is problematic. With Nora’s help, he finally makes his move. Will it be the start of something wonderful?

 

Warnings: MMFM, MMFFMM, MMFMM, FF elements, spanking, bondage, sex toys, exhibitionism, four smoking hot brothers who work together and share.

Word Count: 5766

 

Excerpt:

She expected Nora to brush her question off as a joke, but Nora tilted her head and studied Daisy. “I hadn’t thought about it that way. We should make out. Once they notice, I bet they’ll stop gabbing and get to work.”

“I’ve never kissed a woman,” Daisy said.

“Me neither,” Nora responded. “I’d be honored if you’d pop my cherry.”

Before Daisy could fully nod, Nora brushed her lips against Daisy’s. They began tentatively, feeling one another out, and by the time Daisy committed fully and admitted to herself that kissing Nora was really nice, they were lying on their sides and rubbing their bodies together.

Strong hands slid up her legs and removed her panties. Others lifted her shirt and kneaded her breasts. Daisy and Nora broke away from one another, and Daisy found her lips occupied by Jeremy. He paused to slide her shirt over her head and remove her bra, and then he kissed his way down her neck. He had large hands, strong and hot as he palmed her breast. Another set of hands pried her knees apart and repositioned her ass. Daisy looked down to see Toby plant a kiss on her mons. “You started without us,” he said. “I see we’ll have to revise the rules.”

He closed his mouth around her clit, sucking briefly, and then he licked her with long, hot strokes. She wanted to watch, but Jeremy turned her face to him and outlined her lips with his cock. Daisy was impressed with his size, so she wrapped her hand around his base before she took him in her mouth. She licked the ridge of his crown as he lazily thrust into her. Between her legs, Toby did amazing things with his tongue and fingers. Her climax came swiftly, surprising her with the lack of buildup. Well, maybe it wasn’t too surprising—the spanking had taken her to the edge and left her there. Toby moaned as he slurped her juices. Jeremy pulled out of her mouth. Toby lifted her while Jeremy took her place on the bed, and then he put her down so that she straddled this youngest brother.

Jeremy grasped her hips and lifted her only to slam her back down on him. He did this a few times, and Daisy gasped. Yes—she liked it rough. Toby knelt behind her. He pinched and rolled her nipples as he thrust his tongue into her mouth, simulating what his brother was doing. “You’re going to ride Jeremy, sweetheart. Well, you’re going to hold onto him and try, anyway. He’s a difficult stallion. While you’re doing that, I’m going to paddle your backside. I want you to hold off on having another orgasm until I tell you to. Got it?”
