Lovin’ U #1: Making It Good

Nicoline Tiernan is back with a New Adult mini-series!


Final_Making_it_good_200When shy Paula meets Wyatt on her first day at college, she’s immediately drawn to him, but she knows the tattooed hottie can’t possibly be interested. Wyatt is blown away the first moment he sees her, and now he has to convince her that he’s the right man for her.

Warnings: mf, losing virginity to a hot, tattooed guy

Wyatt paid for her cone and hoped she didn’t see his fingers shake. Since he’d turned fifteen, women had fallen over themselves to go out with him. He’d never had to try so hard in his life, but he guessed this was a portent of the next four years. School had always come easy to him, though that fact ran counter to his reputation. Even his parents had always been surprised when his report cards had reflected top grades. He’d delayed enrollment for a year because he knew he wasn’t mature enough to handle that kind of responsibility. The time for easy success had come to a close.

And boy, was Paula proving that true. She was wary of him, and she kept staring at his tattoo. He couldn’t tell if she was afraid of the black mamba or fascinated. She licked the base of her butterscotch ice cream, and the image brought to mind what she’d look like on her knees, her long, light brown hair pushed back from her face so he could see her pink tongue dart out to lick his cock with the same relish.

She was pretty, the kind of woman who wore her looks carelessly because she had no idea how beautiful she really was. Wyatt had noticed her right off, but she’d been oblivious to his existence. Maybe he had bumped her when he’d leaned closer to see if she’d smelled as good as she’d looked. It hadn’t been intentional, and it had definitely gained her attention, so he couldn’t regret anything immature he might have done.

“It’s a black mamba,” he said when he caught her staring at it as they waited for the signal to let them cross the street. “The most venomous snake in the world. It’s shy, but if you don’t leave it alone, it will wipe the floor with your ass.”

“Oh,” she said, glancing away.

The walk light came on, and they stepped into the street. He wanted to hold her hand, and he had to actively force himself to refrain from grabbing for it. “Do you want to touch it?”

She stared at him, her eyes wide as if he’d asked another question altogether. Did she even know how soft and kissable her lips looked? He sank his teeth into his lower lip to keep his mind on track. That urge was nothing compared to what she generated when she ran her fingertip down his triceps and along the underside of his arm, following the way it wrapped around him.

Club Alegria #4: Nora and Those Holland Boys

The next Club Alegria mini-series launches Monday, July 21, 2014. This series focuses on four brothers–Toby, Nathan, Jeremy, and Justin Holland–who share everything. Nicoline Tiernan penned four love stories that feature these hotties. Here’s a peak at the first one:

Nora 500Blurb: Growing up next to the four Holland brothers was no hardship for Nora Hayward. Every brother is a blond-haired, blue-eyed panty dropper, especially Nathan, but somehow they ended up as just friends. One night Nora bumps into the foursome at Club Alegria. When they invite her for a night of fun in the group room, will Nora end up with more than she bargained for?

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

Nathan lifted her and set her on his lap. “You’re not ruining anything. In fact, you’ve saved the night. We were about to get going when we saw you.” He traced a finger along her bare thigh. “Remember when we graduated from high school? You promised you’d show me yours if I showed you mine.”
Nora giggled, nervous because Nathan didn’t smell of alcohol, yet he seemed to be putting the moves on her. She’d nursed a back-burner crush for him for as long as she could remember. Nobody she’d dated had quite come close to making her feel the way Nathan did. His touch felt good, and she didn’t want to stop him just yet. “You never showed me yours,” she said.

Jeremy’s hand landed on her other thigh. He had graduated four years after her and Nathan. Justin was two years younger, and Toby was two years older. Jeremy’s hand moved higher. “You wearing anything under that skirt, Nora?”

“Black bra under a white shirt,” Justin observed. “My money’s on matching panties.”

“Lace,” Toby said. “I think Nora’s a lace kind of girl.”

Nora might be a lace kind of girl, but that didn’t mean she wanted to be manhandled in public. She halted Jeremy and Nathan’s forays. “Seriously, guys. What’s going on?”

On the sofa opposite the four of them, Justin leaned forward. “We were sitting here, all talking about how we’ve had the hots for you since you grew boobs, and we were wondering if maybe you felt the same way.”

Master Jett’s Surprise (Club Alegria #3) is Here!

Club Alegria #3 is here!
Blurb: When Amy agrees to be Zach’s present to his Master, her wildest fantasies come true.
Warnings: m/m/f, m/m, spanking, bondage, flogging, sex toys


MasterJettsSurprise500x776He nodded, accepting her word. He took his time undressing her, running his hands and fingers over the black silk and noting what made her tremble or breathe harder. Amy struggled to remain silent and still under as Master Jett learned her body in a new way. By the time he had removed her top, every nerve ending in her torso stood at attention. He pinched her nipple, and she moaned, so he did it again and again, searching for and finding her threshold for pain.

When he’d played enough, he said. “Turn around and grab your ankles.”

Turning, she found Zach rock hard and rigid with tension. His thick cock jutted from his nest of curls, curving the perfect amount. He would hit her sweet spot every time. Amy threw him a cheeky grin as she assumed her next position. She wished Master Jett would remove her panties. With them around her knees, she felt curiously more exposed. Nothing happened for a few moments. She knew Master Jett was looking at her private areas, studying the landscape and making her understand that she belonged to him. If he wanted to spend the night looking at her, then he would do just that. As she felt herself submitting to him from this powerless pose, her pussy grew wetter and wetter.

She closed her eyes and moaned when she felt his fingertips trace through her juices. He didn’t use much pressure, and sometimes that was the hardest thing to bear. A whimper escaped her throat before she knew it was there, and Master Jett chuckled. He had a nice laugh, the kind that was full of warmth. Knowing she’d pleased him with her unintended noise, she relaxed.

Excerpt from Re/Bound

ReBound-FJM_Low_Res_500x750She paused at a door three-quarters of the way down the hall. Her gaze fell to the floor. After the awkwardness had passed, the rest of the night had gone well. He had kept the conversation on innocuous topics and had learned a lot about her relationship with Victor Snyder. The prick had her thoroughly and completely snowed. She considered him a friend and a benefactor.

He hooked his finger under her chin and encouraged her to meet his gaze. When she complied, he rewarded her with a smile. Without a doubt, she was one responsive submissive. Yataines had trained her well.

He cupped the side of her face and traced his thumb over her eyebrow. Adjusting the position of his hand, he repeated the caress along her lower lip. She trembled a bit, but she clearly awaited his command. His earlier intention had been an impulsive act of affection. It had taken all his willpower to keep his cock from saluting her submissiveness.

“I had a nice time tonight, Darcy. Thank you for making this trip worthwhile.”

Her eyes widened a bit, and he knew she wanted to ask if he’d decided against seeing her again now that he’d found out about some of her baggage.

He replayed his caress of her lip. Suddenly he needed to taste her lips more than anything in the world. “Can I kiss you?”

She began to nod, but she caught herself in time. She swallowed and licked her lips. “Yes, I’d like that.”

Malcolm had never once taken the trust of a submissive lightly. Part of him wanted to play the gentleman and leave her alone. A larger part of him needed to know the flavor and texture of her kiss. He recognized the blurring of the line between his cover identity and his real self, and he couldn’t keep from crossing it.

He feathered his lips over hers, a reverent caress that teased a small sigh from her. That tiny sound proved to be his undoing. He traced the seam of her lips with his tongue, and she opened for him. He cradled her head with one hand to hold her close, and he snaked the other around her waist to press her body closer.

She moaned and leaned into him as he directed with the pressure of his hand on her back. He tasted her lips and teeth. He sampled the roof of her mouth and tangled his tongue with hers. A piece of his heart he’d never before used came to life. It beat a furious staccato rhythm he felt echoed in her chest. Blood rushed to his cock. He thrust a knee between her legs and ground against her.

She mewled, and her fingers dug into his shoulders. Inflamed with her flavor, he moved his lips to sample her neck. She moaned and threw her head back.

The sharp crack of it hitting the door brought Malcolm back to his senses. He had shoved her against the door, and he had ravaged her with everything in his arsenal. He released her abruptly, keeping one hand close in case she needed more than the door to hold her up.

She gazed up at him, her eyes heavy-lidded with desire and blurred by shock. She took a deep, ragged breath and pushed away from the door.

Malcolm ran a shaky hand through his hair. “I’m sorry. You consented to a kiss, not a public mauling.”

A little laugh escaped before she could bite her lip to keep it inside. “Now I’m wondering what will happen if I consent to a public mauling.”

The visions she evoked meant he would need an icy shower before going to sleep. Wisely he changed the topic. “I’d like to see you again. Can we have breakfast together? I could swing by around eight, and we could walk down together.”

Malcolm didn’t know whether he asked her for the mission or because the pounding heart in his chest wanted to shrivel up and die at the thought of not seeing her.

She nodded. “I’d like that.”

Picking herself up after the devastating loss of her master is more difficult than Darcy anticipated. Just when she needs someone the most, a handsome Dom steps in. Theo is thoughtful, dominant, and demanding—everything she needs. He pushes her boundaries, tests her limits, and takes her to new heights. With him, she remembers what it is to feel joy and love and a firm hand on her ass.

Agent Malcolm Legato is after a corrupt businessman, and Darcy is his ticket into the upper echelon of Snyder Corp. As he cultivates her as an asset, he falls hard for this feisty submissive, and he knows he’ll break her heart the moment she finds out he’s been lying to her all along.

When it all falls apart, will Darcy be able to find the strength to forgive Malcolm so they can build a life together and the courage to bring justice to the man she loved and lost?


With twists of rope and plot, this action-packed story will make you laugh, cry, and squirm in all the right ways. With Re/Bound, Michele Zurlo delivers a smart, bold, and sexy tale.

Excerpt from Master Eddie’s Sub

It’s release day for Master Eddie’s Sub (Club Alegria #2). You might remember Eddie from Catherine and The Spanking Room–he was the Dom-in-training who so sweetly helped Carlos with his lovely submissive. Now Eddie has Marina, a lovely submissive woman all his own. Here’s an excerpt!

Marina finds herself in heaven when Eddie takes her to Club Alegria for her first public and group scenes.
Marina finds herself in heaven when Eddie takes her to Club Alegria for her first public and group scenes.

A glance down proved that Eddie was aroused by the idea of doing things to her in public, and that calmed her more than words could. He shifted her to stand in front of him. Master Carlos had released Catherine’s nipple, and now he worked on her ass with a wooden paddle. She shrieked and howled, but when he let up, she said, “Getting tired already, Master? I’m barely feeling it.” Her ass was a maze of redness, and bruises would no doubt appear in a little while.

Eddie slid his hands up Marina’s thighs, reaching under her shirt to knead her breasts. Marina relaxed against his strong body and let herself enjoy her Sir’s attention. Master Carlos resumed spanking Catherine, this time with a tree branch that whistled through the air and left welts across her ass and thighs, and Eddie slid his hand under her skirt and into her panties. Marina gasped when his probing fingers found her wet and ready. Though she didn’t want to be spanked, the sight of someone else being disciplined definitely turned her on. That, and Eddie’s proximity. Just the smell of him got her hot and bothered.

He scooted the crotch of her panties aside and plunged fingers into her pussy. Marina stifled a moan and her hips thrust forward. He nipped at her earlobe again. “No coming.”

Even though she wanted to protest and beg, she merely nodded. When Eddie let her come, it was always spectacular. She trusted him, and she loved how he tormented her. He pumped into her, curving his fingers to find her sweet spot. Marina moaned, little high-pitched sounds of protest as she struggled to stave off her orgasm. He always seemed to know when she could stand no more, but this time was different. He ground the bulge in his jeans against her lower back and massaged her sweet spot without mercy. The noises coming from Marina turned desFrom Lost Goddess Puperate, and she couldn’t hold it off anymore.

“Don’t come,” he said as he twisted her nipple, sending her over the edge. He continued fingering her, drawing out her orgasm, and then he held her against him. “You disobeyed, Marina.”

New Chapter in my Life

Last year when I got my taxes done, my tax guy (Bruce) looked around my house and said, “You need to form an LLC to separate your personal liability from your professional liability.” I like Bruce because 1) He comes to my house, 2) He’s reasonably priced and good at his job, and 3) He sends me a letter every year telling me when my appointment is. I like that I don’t have to be the one to make the call, and it forces me to get everything together by a certain time. Okay, enough about Bruce.

LGP Banner 2 with TriskeleSince I read and follow directions (contrary to the ‘man-logic’ way my mind seems to operate), I formed an LLC. I called it Lost Goddess because I’d been listening to the Violent Femmes song “Kiss Off”. Nine was for a lost god, but I’m not a dude, so I went for goddess. Fast forward to last fall when the wife and I were sitting around chit-chatting.

“You should publish your own stuff,” she said.

“I should.” I replied. “In the next two years, I’ll be getting the rights back to a lot of my books, so I’ll be doing that anyway.”

“That’s not what I meant.” She smiles. “I mean–you have an LLC. You should actually open a publishing company.”

I liked the idea. On the list of things I’d always wanted to be is a librarian or an editor. Since I’m neither, I decided to bump ‘publisher’ to the top of the list. Also, I’m impulsive. So I responded:

“Yeah. And I know the perfect cover artist. She could do banners and logos too.” The banner, designed by the incredibly talented Casey Harris, is above.

And so we researched the idea. I talked about the business aspects with a cousin who has two successful chiropractic clinics. He put me in touch with lawyers and gave great advice about the process, especially the part where your nerves feel like someone’s been electrocuting them for fun. We filed paperwork with the State of Michigan (who, for all their talk, are not very small-business-friendly. Still, we prevailed).Triskelewebsitewhite

Since Wife and I run this together, we have weekly meetings with agendas. We come out of them with list of things that need to be done. One of those was making a website. You can visit it by clicking the logo, also designed by Casey Harris. In case you haven’t guessed, purple is my favorite color.

We named our major idea, which became our launch identity, Hot Lunch. As busy parents, we recognize that many people don’t have a lot of time to read. They often don’t have hours or days to devote to a full-length story. They lament over a book they’ve been trying to read for a month. “It’s good, but I’m so tired at night that I only have about 20 minutes before I’m sleeping with a book on my face.” Therefore we decided to fill that need with short stories. Hot Lunch stories are 4500-8000 words. They’re something you can read during your lunch break or right before bed (though after reading, you probably won’t want to go straight to bed). Cool logo, also by Casey:

Then we needed content to publish. We contacted some friends and contracted for several series. The first one, called Club Alegria, takes place at a fetish club. Anything goes–BDSM, D/s, S&M, menage, exhibitionism, voyeurism. The first three books are co-written by Michele Zurlo and Nicoline Tiernan. The second four in the series are by Nicoline Tiernan. The second series is New Adult. It takes place at a university, and it’s called Lovin’ U. We have four stories so far in this series written by Miranda Mitchell. Here are the covers for the first series, all by Casey Harris.


I was looking for something that was classy and chic, and clearly communicated that these three stories are thematically linked. (I just mistyped “kinked” which is a funny error, but also true.) I hope this new venture is successful. I’m so nervous, like I’m sending my babies off into the big, cruel world, but I’m excited at the same time. I hope you all like this as well. The long-term plan is to expand to novellas and full-length novels, but that’s in the hazy future.

Lost Goddess Publishing plans to accept submissions beginning October 2014. Check the website (click the triskele above) for details.
