The Color of Love Bloghop with Grisha from Club Ink #tigershifter #bdsm #giveaway

Welcome to my little corner of the Color of Love Bloghop, where we celebrate all things Interracial and Multicultural.

You know I never think much about colour, when I sit down to write. I simply write what the characters tell me to, and what is appropriate to the story. People are people and the colour of their skin has little or nothing to do with the person they are inside.

I have written a number of Multicultural books, as I love pitching the obstacles to true love high, but it wasn't until I wrote Riding her Tiger (Club Ink,1) that a character came from nowhere, who would eventually need his own story and thus create my first Interracial book.

This is that moment when my heroine asks for a drink at the bar:

"So, what will it be, doll?"
"A black Russian, please, and my name is Estelle." Cherie smirked, looking behind her and made herself busy fixing the drink.
"Someone called for me?"
The deep accented voice rumbled through Estelle, and two heavily muscled arms came round her and caged her in against the bar. Eyes the color of coal connected with hers in the mirrors behind the bar, the man's white hair a direct contrast to the ebony hues of his skin. He, too, seemed a walking furnace. He rested his chin on her shoulder and inhaled deeply.
"Hmm, so sweet and fresh and unclaimed." Cherie rolled her eyes at Estelle and passed her the drink she ordered.
"She asked for a drink, not you. The lady is spoken for, so back off, Grisha." She smiled at Estelle and glared at Grisha. 
He chuckled again, dropped a kiss against the rapidly beating pulse in Estelle's neck and pulled back just enough to enable Estelle to swing round on her chair. One of his large hands settled on her thigh, just below her cunt, and she swallowed nervously. The sight of his dark hand was such a contrast against her bare flesh. Who'd have thought it would be so erotic? Or maybe this place was just getting to her. 

Yes,  just like that Grisha was born, and he is indeed a black Russian. A Siberian Tiger shifter, who plays quite a part in books one and two of Club Ink, and eventually gets his own story in Masks of a Tiger.

Neeve doesn't understand why any normal person would choose to wear a collar like a common house pet. So, the collaring ceremony of her best friend's sister-in-law is the last place she wants to be, even if the hot men watching her send her insides aflame.

Never one for missing the opportunity to teach a bratty sub manners, Grisha intends to show the fiery little redhead the error of her ways. He doesn't expect to see her drawn to the flame like the proverbial moth. When she hurts herself in ways that even a Dom of his experience finds hard to witness, he knows he needs to help her.

Will their sexual chemistry be enough to chase away their demons and burn away their masks? Or is the submission Grisha demands too much for Neeve to accept?

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, spanking, fire play, public exhibition

You can read a red hot Excerpt HERE.

I fell utterly and hopelessly in love with Grisha from the moment he made his first appearance in book one, and the more I got to know him, the harder I fell.

It seems readers feel the same way about him, because Grisha has been nominated in the Evernight Reader Choice Awards as hottest alpha hero.

  1. mmmmm Grisha ;) I voted for him, and nominated him :D

    My favourite series!

    1. Thanks,Dee :-) You're probably one of his biggest fans ;-)

  2. I have not read this series yet but your excerpt certaintly pulls a reader in. Def have to check it out.

  3. Nice excerpt! I read...and LOVE romance novels (all types) because you're guaranteed a happily-ever-after (or at least a happy for now). And I think what makes a hero HOT is his confidence and his swag.

    1. Yep, I just love that HEA! :-)

  4. You asked: tell me what you like about interracial/multicultural romance, and what makes a hot hero.

    I can relate to the heroine because they are women of color. It's easier to imagine myself in the role. Other than that I want a great story with an alpha male who is protective, confident, caring, ethical, has a good sense of right and wrong, loves to a fault, and is loyal. Those are the romances I lean toward but I read pretty much anything that catches my eye. I love seeing HEA.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    1. Gotta love those alphas :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I’m a sucker for the happily ever after. Add in some RED HOT erotic smexy love scenes and I'm in Heaven. :D I love Alpha Males, whether they be shifters, aliens, doms, or cowboys. They could be black, white, blue, purple, green, or striped. These heroes are strong, sexy, loyal, and confident; have a wicked sense of humor and are protective of their woman even when they KNOW she can kick some major ass.

    Thanks for the chance to win.
