Guest blog and GIVEAWAY by Lace Daltyn and her Forever Men


Hello everyone, 

if you're here for the BDSM Unleashed hop please click on the graphic ------->>>

I'm delighted to have Lace Daltyn on my blog today. She has agreed to hold a Giveaway and she's telling us a bit more about her Forever Men. Over to you, Lace :-)

*****

I’d like to thank Doris O’Connor for having me here today as a guest on her blog. As well, mega-congratulations to her on the recent release of Tiger Scars, a powerful story.

(Thanks, Lace!)

I’ve been writing romance for a few years now, but Forever Men is my first foray into the erotic realm. Strangely enough, I found this novella quite different to write from straight romance because you have to keep the tension high even as you allow them to have their fantasies. And that’s really what erotic fiction is all about, isn’t it? It’s about giving the character what they desire most in the world, be it a release from some private hell or a fantasy they never dreamed they could have.

Normally, I have an idea for a story, then create characters around it. It was different with Alec, Desi, and Matt. They all sprang to life in my mind at the same time and I knew I had to give them a story. They made it fun to write.

Speaking of giving stories, we’re giving a copy of Forever Men to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave a message!



Blurb

Walls crumble when you build a forever love.
 As a couple, the deep, sensual connection between Desi and Alec is imaginative and limitless, even though Desi’s fear that love is transient keeps her from telling her man how she feels. Fun-loving Alec, who lost his parents in a tragic accident, has found that kind of forever love again. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep it, including giving Desi the one thing he lacks—a partner with a serious side.
 With their fledgling construction company headed for the skids if they don’t finish the job on time, Desi and Alec are frantic to catch up. Enter Alec’s friend, Matt, a man haunted by the “dull and unimaginative” label his ex-fianc√© pinned on him.
 Working side by side, a thirst grows that seems unquenchable and each must come to terms with old hurts in order to consider possibilities never before imagined.

Excerpt

Desi tugged at Alec’s chest hair, laughing. “Okay, so maybe I did need a break.”
Alec reached up and pinched a taut nipple between his fingers. “Anytime you need help relaxing, babe, I’m your man.” He looked at his watch. “You might want to get dressed, though. I found us some help. He should be here soon.”
She yelped. “Soon?” Desi jumped up, grabbed for her clothes and headed for the most secluded part of the second floor.
“Why didn’t you tell me someone was coming?”
“I figured we had enough time.” He grinned. “Looks like we did.”
Alec pulled his jeans on and walked over to lean against the framework. He saw the truck tucked back almost out of sight and grinned. With a wave of his arm, he motioned Matt in.
While Desi pulled herself together, he went downstairs to greet him. Seeing the bulge in his friend’s jeans, Alec’s grin widened.
“See anything interesting?” he said, slapping Matt on the back.
“Shit, man. Couldn’t you have gotten a room?”
“Hey, there are two floors of them, right here.”
“A room with walls, man. Walls!”

    1. Very sweet of you to say, Christine. Thanks for stopping by. You know, Alec is the prankster, but Matt is the silent, thoughtful one. I still haven't decided which one I like better. I think I understand Desi's dilemma. She couldn't either. :)
