PLOT TWISTS!

Swamp Magic: Books 1 & 2 by [Romans, Bobbi]

.99 Cents for BOTH (Or so the pre-sale price reflects) Swamp Magic Bk1 and Under the Full Moon Bk2.

Blurb:

This fresh twist on the popular shapeshifter theme offers paranormal suspense fans passion and danger in the Florida Everglades.

Swamp Magic: Beth’s life is upturned when she reluctantly agrees to accompany her idiotic brother on a hunt for the Bog Man. She becomes separated from the others and comes face to face with the legend himself … only no one ever mentioned how damn sexy he was. But Moss, whose sensual iridescent tattoos are a reflection of his unusual reptilian side, struggles to come to terms with the fate an evil witch has cast over him, and wants nothing more than to be left alone.

The swamp’s dark history will test the duo’s survival skills as well as lure them deeper into the magic of the swamp…and passion. But can their love prove stronger than the curse that envelops them?

Under the Full Moon: Cursed to be a laughably unthreatening swamp creature, armadillo shifter Damien stays deep in his cave to hide his shame…until his path crosses with Grace’s. Grace gave up on love ten years ago when her fiancé, Henry, disappeared in the swamp.

Thrust together in the face of imminent danger, Grace and Damien become close, connecting in ways they’d never imagined, until a secret from the past threatens their fledgling bond. As enemies emerge and alliances tangle, one thing becomes clear: only the strongest hearts will survive.

Enterprise Rental Car: Epic FAIL x2!

Enterprise Rental Car FAIL/WARNING!

Some of you may remember the fiasco I had with Enterprise Rental Cars last year. We’d booked the car over a month in advance, I called to verify 24 hrs prior, my reservation was in the system arrived and was denied the rental.

Mind you, we were already in the system as we’ve rented from Enterprise in the past. But I hadn’t been told that if I didn’t use my credit card (which I could have done and earned 5% cash back) that I’d have to bring, A) Gas Bill, B) Cable Bill, C) Cell Phone Bill, D) Electric Bill.

  1. A) We are an ALL electric house. No gas bill. B)We are streamers with ROKU so no cable bill. C) We are Straight Talk and Verizon Pre-Pay Customers D) While I DID show an electric bill (via my cell phone so limited bill visibility, we were belittled that we were “seriously delinquent.”

No. We were not.

We have a City Loan for replacing our roof to a more energy efficient metal roof. You can’t qualify for a city loan with electric delinquency. We are also POOL owners. Between the roof loan (an additional amount on our bill) AND a pool pump/water running, our bills run high. They also include, garbage service, storm water run-off, water and firefighter fee’s.

ONE bill in the summer (during which time the rental was for) was $650.00. Not delinquent, just HIGH bills due to the above reasons.

COMMON SENSE: I offered to bring the bill back so the agent could SEE the actual bill and not just the amount. I also offered to BRING our mortgage statement reflecting we are 20 year home owners.

AGAIN- The agent said no, indicted we were delinquent in our bills and Enterprise would not rent to people like us.

Home owners, perfect driving records, past Enterprise clients and denied and belittled. I made a few quick calls and BUDGET RENTAL had me on the road within 45 minutes!!!! (We’ve also rented from Budget before with NO ISSUES EVER, but when I’d called price-checking, Enterprise had come in lower)

THANK YOU BUDGET!!! Also, noteworthy, the trip was to meet my biological grandmother and also introduce her to my children. Thanks to Budget the trip wasn’t cancelled and sadly, my grandmother was right. Time was ticking, as she passed away a little over a week ago.

  ***   THIS YEAR!  ***

I notified Enterprise of what had happened. After about a week of repeating what happened to different agents, I spoke with the local GM who apologized profusely, SWORE this wasn’t the Enterprise way, and offered me a FREE 3-Day rental, for my next need. (This part took place after last years fiasco)

The last week in April (2017) I emailed the GM and upon no reply called the sore. The GM from last year, no longer worked for Enterprise. The NEW GM requested I forward the emails, (which I did) and then said Enterprise WOULD honor the 3-day rental. As I need a weekly rental, he said he’d get me a quite by the end of the week. This was on a Monday. By Monday the following week, I contacted him again, about  the rental quote.

“Sorry.  I had a death in the family last week.  I didn’t forget about you and I will make a reservation ASAP.”

I replied that day,

Oh no! I’m terribly sorry to hear that. Condolences to you and yours. Its not that I’m in any rush… the trip isn’t until 06/10/17, but I just like to try and get everything arranged so I know what’s done and needs to be done before leaving. Its only to Daytona, but I’ll still pack and treat this as if heading cross country. LOL

 

Again, sorry about your loss. Always hard saying goodbye to loved ones.”

 

 

This exchange happened May 8th. I NEVER heard another word from this GM.

On May 31ar I opened up a direct message dialogue with Enterprise Twitter online. I was assured they cared and someone would get in touch with me.

*Thumbs Up for the people running the Enterprise Twitter Acct!*

It is now June 4th. Yes, only 4 days, but if anyone had truly reviewed the timeline, I would suspect someone would have been in-touch by now.

Budget only comes in a tiny bit higher, but thus far, has been a hassle free experience.

IF and WHEN Enterprise Rental Car contacts me, I’ll UPDATE.

Until then… Be Wary!

You are NOT alone…

You are NOT alone!

For anyone dealing with a loved one/friend battling mental illness, you are NOT alone. It sucks for those battling and it sucks for those dealing with.

The laws are wonky and help no one.

They protect no one.

Yes, life with, can be a struggle. You are not alone.

My SIL is paranoid schizophrenic and a close family like friend is bi-polar. Both can be the sweetest people on the plant and BOTH can go violent in the blink of an eye.

My SIL is currently institutionalized and her husband fears they are being evicted due to her outbursts. She is in misery to what her mind has created and her meds are not working as they used to. Whether this is due to constant changes in them OR menopause or age, we don’t know. We DO know this… everyone is at stalemate.

You see the state doesn’t want to keep her unless she’s a direct threat. Family can’t deal because often she is. Her husband has issues too, not as extreme, but he can only handle him.

STALEMATE.

The close friend I mentioned, is our foster nephews mom. She’s never had it easy either. In fact, most of the time she’s okay.    She doesn’t take her pills because she can’t afford the medical care, and as she’s essentially homeless, has no address to give for attempting state assistence.

STALEMATE.

My son, though not diagnosed is somewhere on the autism/aspbergers spectrum. He was ESE all through school, pulled out of high-school at their recommendation as they saw his need for more help. He’s now 24 and continues to struggle to make a life, without a label. Sadly, his OCD and other issues make life very hard. He may hear a whisper and jumps to assumptions people are talking about him. Yes, we understand he may paranoid tendencies too. He lives at home and we emotionally and financially support him too. But we worry about his future. What happens when we are no longer here?

STALEMATE.

So to any and all of you out there, going through the same struggles…

You are not alone.

There are hotlines in every home state, who have people there to just listen. Don’t hesitate to call. Don’t think you need to be worried about what anyone may “think.”

Sadly we’re going through something very common now, so you are NOT ALONE.

H.C. Brown’s highly anticipated release… One Night in a Dungeon!

heather

 

ONE NIGHT IN A DUNGEON

 

 

Are you ready to step into the dungeons and minds of three edge-playing Doms?  Luminosity Publishing brings you the much anticipated, One Night in a Dungeon anthology.

A collection of red-hot M/M, M/M/M, BDSM stories written especially for you by three international bestselling authors, H.C. Brown, Tamsin Baker, and Dylan McEwan.

 

 

Whatever your flavor, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this erotic mixture of hot stories, chosen by me, especially for the connoisseurs of kink. . . .H.C. Brown

 

Master Luke by H.C. Brown: 

 

After so many subs, the men’s names have faded into sated memories of lust, with one exception, Master Luke’s vanilla virgin, Brian, and the one night in his dungeon, he will never forget. 

 

Master Luke is always looking for a well-lubricated willing ass, and unmarked flesh to flog. He loves men, all men, the twinks, the bears, young, old, innocent or man-whores makes no difference once they are tied to his bench and under his flogger. After so many subs, the men’s names he enjoyed have all faded into sated memories of lust, with one exception, his vanilla virgin, Brian, and the one night in his dungeon, he will never forget.

 

Excerpt:

I’m looking for down and dirty, hot and willing, so if you’re looking for a happy every after in my dungeon, you’ve come to the wrong guy.

The BDSM club, Red, is my domain. I enjoy the scent of men, especially when wrapped in the rich musky male smell of sex and leather. I like to take my time looking over the mix of subs on offer. They say there is someone for everyone but for me it makes no difference once I have them tied to my bench, and begging for my cock … and they all do … beg, I mean. It is the sweetest sound and almost as good as the little moans they make when they come.

Red is a safe environment with regulation testing for all members, and tonight I’ve set my sights on a sweet piece of virgin ass by the name of Brian. Fuck! The moment, he walked past, his face all flushed, looking around excited, he could have stood on a table and shouted, “Look at me. I’m a vanilla virgin.”

Fuck, my cock hardened so damn hard it made my head spin. He had that cute look, unsullied, fresh, and oh so innocent. I almost came in my pants when he did the unforgivable and met my gaze with a challenge I couldn’t ignore. The noise around me faded into a buzz, and I grabbed his arm to spin him around to face me. “You looking for some action, pup?”

He gave me that, “who me” look and wet his bottom lip in an unconscious come-on. The blush staining his cheeks made my cock grow an extra inch. The damp head pressed against the rough zipper of my pants sending waves of delicious sensation straight to my balls. I wanted to throw him over the nearest table, rip off his pants, and do him dry. I bit back the wave of insatiable need and sucked in a deep breath trying to curb my enthusiasm.

“I–I’m not sure.” He shuffled his feet and his gaze settled on my hard-on. “Maybe…”

 

Master Tony by Tamsin Baker

 

Master Tony is ready to fulfill Nathan’s wicked fantasies, and if his sub can go the distance, he might decide to keep him. 

 

Nathan needs a Dom and a good, long night more than anything. He enters Club Extreme with hopes of meeting Big D Dom—a Dom he’s met online. What he doesn’t expect is for Master Tony to fulfill every fantasy Nathan has ever had, and he invites him back for another night!

Master Tony wants a sub to serve him, to love and whip. Nathan makes all the right noises online, and when they meet in real life, the chemistry is incredible. But he has a decision to make, his sub lives in another state. So what’s a big Dom meant to do when his perfect boy lives so far away?

 

Excerpt:

The first crack of the whip felt almost soothing. The leather wrapped itself around my belly then flicked back. I grabbed onto the chains and let my head drop.

Over and over the sting of the whip made me cry out, and I loved the burn. My cock was back to half mast, and I let the pain drop me down, down, and further down. I was one with the moment, swaying my hips to the music in my head.

Master Tony flicked the whip in a particularly quick arch, and I’d cried out “yellow” before I made the conscious choice to end the session. He stopped instantly, moving close to press his now naked chest to my burning back.

“Good boy, pretty boy, brave boy.” Master Tony crooned to me and stroked my hair, while the burn in my back turned to something pleasing.

He untied me from the chains, and I cried out at the pain my sore limbs protested. Master Tony rubbed my aching arms as I fell back onto him. He wrapped his arms around me. My eyes were still closed.

“Lie on your tummy, baby boy, and I’ll get the cream.”

I moved forward, but Daddy helped me lie on my belly, my stiff prick hard under me. I didn’t know if he meant lube or cream for my back but at that moment I didn’t care.

Cool fingers rubbed into my back, and I moaned, “Thank you, Daddy.”

“Daddy” almost seemed an appropriate term for Master Tony as he cared for me. He massaged the cream into my back in a soothing rhythm, moving down my spine until he found my still-burning ass. I lifted myself up wantonly, and he chuckled.

“On your knees.”

I moved to my knees, lethargy pushed to the back of my mind as my body began to throb with awareness.

Ranulf by Dylan McEwan

 

With his Viking physique, Nordic godlike features, and insatiable sexual appetite, Ranulf is the supreme Alpha male, a Dom’s Dom—and his underground dungeon is by no means his darkest secret.

 

Submissive Ryan is head-over-heels in love with the handsome, dominant Brandon Lewis. Ryan doesn’t care that the man can’t commit to monogamy but enjoys an endless string of casual hook-ups and one-night-stands. On the contrary, the masochist revels in being humiliated by Brandon’s boasting of his many conquests. But while the man is so totally open about his casual promiscuity, he is very secretive about the rest of his life, and Ryan knows nothing about his background.

Who is the mysterious Ranulf and what is his relationship with Brandon?

Does his Dom have a Dom of his own?

When promised ‘one helluva night’ and taken to a mysterious underground dungeon, he has no idea that submitting to the Thor-like Nordic Master Ranulf is going to change his life forever, in the most incredulous fantastical way.

A sexually charged, explicit BDSM romance.

 

Excerpt:

“I knew they’d make a cute cage couple,” the leather-clad master commented. “It’s fun watching two subs together.” He went up to the cage and reached a hand between the bars to stroke Kristztian’s hair. “Kiss” he ordered, stepping back again to stand beside the other, lesser Dom.

Ryan pulled back a little from the other lad and looked to Brandon. No matter how many other men they had sex with, the rules were no kissing and no sleeping with. As magnetic and intense as Ranulf was, he couldn’t break their rules for him or for anyone, not without consulting his boyfriend first. Ranulf’s eyes narrowed and he pressed his lips together in a hard thin line for a few seconds before speaking.

“My dungeon, my rules. Down here, you do what I say. If you refuse, you will be hurt.”

Adrenalin rushed through Ryan’s body in a fearful glorious surge. He was a little scared, yes, but elated at the same time. After all, as long as he was compliant, there was surely no need to be really afraid; and if Ranulf went too far, Brandon would step in anyway, he would always protect him. He looked back at Kristztian, met his gaze briefly, then leaned in and pressed his mouth against his. He was cool and moist and tasted of cinnamon. He tentatively, slowly, drew his tongue across his lips as an erotic invitation. The invite was accepted – he parted his lips just enough to allow the gentle oral penetration. He lightly rested his hands on the other slave’s shoulders and felt a hand tangling into his hair.

“Tell me, has Ryan ever fucked? Been the top?” Ranulf asked Brandon, still keeping his gaze fixed on their two boys kissing and lightly petting.

“No, never” he replied, shaking his head. “He’s completely submissive. Why?”

“The top isn’t always the dominant partner in a relationship, you know, that’s a common misconception” he told him. “And in a BDSM relationship, a total submissive can definitely top if it’s done right. It all depends on how it’s played out. If you have an established and recognized Power Dynamic, then getting your Bottom to Top doesn’t threaten to blur the lines. You’re still completely in control. You can humiliate, embarrass and discomfit a sub by forcing them to fuck, though they usually discover it’s fun after the initial awkwardness is past. You’re getting turned on watching them making out. Imagine watching them screw!” Suppressing a smirk, the more assertive male sat down on the fuck stool beside him, legs wide, hands in pockets. “Kristztian, get his cock out. Make him hard.” he ordered his slave boy, who obeyed without any hesitation.

Q & A with Bobbi’s Book Blurbs, Teasers & Tag Lines

For the curious… here’s the breakdown of Bobbi’s Book Blurbs, Teasers & Tag Lines.

Q: Do you just do blurbs?

A-NO. I’ve done ad’s (for author signings, sales, etc) Same price ($25.00) and same rules. Don’t like (not using) NO CHARGE. Heck, I’ve even done personal birthday party invitations where they wanted something unique.

Q: How does it work? What do I need to send?

  1. A) Simply send me a brief rundown or your synopsis if done. I actually do (for the one price) several options and several teasers. I call it round one. Many love from the 1st shot. Some, want something more and others ask me to merge several of the options into one. I’ll take your notes/comments from round one and customize to your liking. But… if using (paying) ALL options are yours to use as they were created specifically for YOUR story. Use them for alternative blurbs/teasers, or toss. ALL options/attempts are yours to do with as you see fit.

Q: How does payment work?

  1. A) Upon completion (when customer is happy and loves their blurb) I’ll Paypal invoice you for $25.00.

Q: What about a blurb for a book bundle/boxed set I’m putting together? How much would that cost?

A: IF you’re putting a series together and just want the ONE blurb to represent the whole series… SAME PRICE! $25.00. I charge per blurb (with teasers and tags thrown in). So whether your set has 3 stories or 10, since its ONE blurb you want–its ONE charge.

Q: I’m redoing an old series and want fresh blurbs. How much would that cost?

A: Again, $25.00 per blurb, which includes, teasers and tag lines. So, $25.00 per story.

Q: What’s your turn-around time?

A: Usually within a few hours. Obviously if you sent a request late PM, I may not be up or may be on my way to bed. That said… I did have an author contact me once in the middle of working with Createspace and needed a blurb, like THEN. ASAP! I happened to be up and at 11:30 PM worked her blurb and had it back by Midnight.

Q: Anything else I need to know?

A: Please be polite. When working with you, I DO understand life happens, but if you experience a delay in being in contact… take the time for a quick email, “I’ll get back with you on XXX.” Nothing worse than being in the frame of mind for said authors work, then having days go by without word. If you don’t like, it’s okay… as an author too, I understand not everything will be everyone’s cup of tea. Simply let me know, the blurbs didn’t work, but hey, thanks for trying. I’m good with that and you won’t be charged.

What sets me apart? The no charge rule. If you don’t like/use, I’m not charging you. For most of us, we’re still struggling to make a living following our dream of writing. Last thing any of us need is to pay for anything (work related or other) we don’t need. A bad blurb, is NOT needed.

Special request. Like you money is limited… so, for now, I’m strictly working social media and word of mouth. (Thank you to the customers who have recommended me) Please help me spread the word by sharing or just mentioning when you hear someone in need or complaining they hate doing blurbs.- Thanks!

Hope to work with you soon,

Bobbi Romans
