A Sexual Education Novel
S.L. Jennings
Releasing Nov 10th, 2015
Avon Books

 

From New York Times bestselling
author S.L. Jennings comes another scandalously sexy, incredibly hot story
about a woman who knows what she wants…and the two men who are dying to give
her what she needs.
Heidi DuCane is a tough-as-nails publicist with a passion for success and her husband Tucker.
While they’re polar opposites, what they do have in common is a fierce love and
commitment to each other. But their relationship-in and out of the bedroom-will
be put to the ultimate test.
Rock superstar Ransom Reed is every woman’s fantasy, including Heidi’s.
When she meets Ransom, she shares a wild night with him where Heidi gets to
play-and Tucker watches, and enjoys, the pleasure Ransom gives Heidi. Though
Tucker was a willing participant, Heidi still can’t help reeling with guilt.
There’s no doubt that she loves her husband. While Tucker is the perfect
lover-generous, attentive and gentle-she needs much more. She needs the
mind-blowing ecstasy Ransom offers.
Tucker isn’t blind to the fact that Heidi has unconventional needs which he
can’t satisfy. He loves his wife and will do anything to please her The night
he watched her and Ransom was so scorching hot amnd Tucker can’t stop thinking
about it. He decides he wants to join Ransom in pleasing Heidi. But as Tucker
and Heidi soon realize, it’s not just the sex that is enticing. Heidi felt
something within her awaken, and she felt so deliciously sated and loved by
both men. Tucker felt it too, and he finds it impossible not to want that
feeling again.Ransom and Tucker satisfy a need within Heidi. And now that she’s had them, she
can never go back to the way things were before.

 “I dare you…to let me touch your wife.”

An audible gasp escapes my kiss-swollen lips and turn to Tucker, awaiting his
wrath. He returns Ransom’s intent stare, his expression unreadable. Yet, the
younger man doesn’t back down, cocking a challenging brow at Tuck’s silence. He
remains unmovable, a master at the art of restraint from his years as a shrink.
No doubt he’s had to answer some odd questions, but never any involving his
wife.
“I don’t let Heidi do anything. She has
her own mind…her own body.”
“So maybe I should be asking her.” A sinister smile on his lips, Ransom angles his
focus on me. “Heidi, would you let me touch you?”
My first reaction is to say no—hell no.
But Tucker quickly grasps my knee, capturing my attention.
“This is what you want,” he whispers. “He…is what you want. And I can accept that.
This is your fantasy, baby. Let me help you make it come true.”
I search his face, waiting for him to break into laughter, but he’s completely
serious. My husband is telling me to let another man put his hands on me—his
wife. This isn’t right. This isn’t what married people are supposed to do. But
even as that rational part of my brain lists all the reasons why I shouldn’t
allow this to go any further, my body is already tingling with anticipation. My
face and chest are flush. My nipples harden in exhilaration. And my mouth
waters with the prospect of tasting Ransom’s skin.
Oh, God. I do want this. And now the
decision is mine and mine alone.
“So?”
Ransom asks, awaiting our fate.
Say no.
Say no.
Grab Tucker’s hand and get the fuck out of here. Go home and make love to him. Let that kind, good, gentle man be
enough.
Once again, Ransom Reed steals the truth from my lips, forcing me to abandon all
decency and sanity. Making me take the sanctity of my marriage and soil it with
my own slick arousal.
In one single breath, I shatter ten years of devotion, trust and love. And although I
know what I’m destroying by lighting this fire, I can’t do much more than stand
back and watch it all go up in flames.
“Yes.”

INCLUDING:

 

UNBREAK ME, by Lexi Ryan: Returning home to be a bridesmaid in her ex-fiancé’s wedding to her sister, Maggie Thompson, a 21-year old college-dropout, hopes to salvage her long-tarnished reputation and strained relationship with her family. Instead, she finds herself caught in a web of secrets and deception between the man who once promised to fix her and the sexy ex-rocker who gives her permission to break.

FIGHTING SILENCE by Aly Martinez: I spent my life dodging the punches reality threw at me. I had worthless parents and two brothers who depended on me. Meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan–neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one. They both happened anyway.

Susi Interviews Kyra Davis, author of Just One Lie @_KyraDavis

Susi Interviews Kyra Davis, author of Just One Lie

 

I am super excited to share this interview with you today.  I am a huge Kyra Davis fan.  Her writing is incredible.  If you haven’t read any of her work yet, you must.

author interview banner

Susi:  How long have you been writing?

Kyra:  Twelve years now.

Susi:  When did your passion for writing begin?

Kyra:  I didn’t start writing until I was in the middle of my divorce from my first husband. It was a difficult time. I was frustrated, anxious and angry. So, inspired by Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, I channeled all my violent impulses and wrote a murder mystery and killed off a bunch of men. Seriously though, it was while writing that book that I realized I had found a new direction for my life. Writing saved me. That murder mystery ended up being my first published novel, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte.

Susi: How many books have you published?

Kyra:  Just One Lie will make eleven.

Susi:  Are you interested in writing any other genres?

Kyra:  So far I’ve published Women’s fiction (So Much For My Happy Ending), chick-lit murder mysteries (the Sophie Katz series) and now romance (the Just One Night and Pure Sin series).  I might write a historical one of these days or maybe a fantasy novel. But for the moment I’m just so grateful to be able to write in those three genres.

Susi:  What books are you currently working on?

Kyra:  I am working on both a romance and a woman’s fiction novel right now as well as some Hollywood stuff but I’m not ready to talk much about all that yet. Still, I promise to keep you updated!

Susi:  When do you write?  Do you have any specific writing routines?

Kyra: I try to write during somewhat regular business hours, wrapping things up by seven. That way I can spend time with my family. But when a deadline’s looming I’ll work until all hours of the night. Just depends.

Susi:  When not writing, what are your hobbies or interests?

Kyra:  Well I’m a huge reader. I love to travel and go to museums (both science and art museums). Eating out, taking my dog on long walks, dancing, my husband and I have pool parties for our friends fairly regularly. Oh and I like going out with my girlfriends, seeing Magic Mike XXL, seeing Magic Mike XXL again, seeing Magic Mike XXL one more time…

Susi:  What inspires you to write?  Music, a muse?  Who was your muse for Robert Dade?

Kyra:  I have a Spotify soundtrack for each book that I play while writing. I choose songs that fit the tone of the manuscript I’m working on. In Just One Lie the protagonist is the lead singer of an indie band and she’s constantly listening to one song or another, so I listened to the songs she listened/danced to while writing those scenes.

As for Robert…He’s really his own man BUT it’s true that my now husband invited to fly me out to Vegas after what was basically our first date…and that he played high stakes blackjack and even offered me my own suite at the Venetian (since I barely knew the guy). It ended up being a very decadent, indulgent and extravagant weekend.  At the time it felt like I was in the middle of a story. So I did use that trip as a jumping off point for Dade.

Susi:  How would you describe yourself as a writer?

Kyra:  I write character driven stories regardless of whether I’m writing a romance or a murder mystery. And I’m meticulous about my prose.

Susi:  How long does it generally take you to write a book?

Kyra:  Depends on the book. I really should have at least four months but honestly, I miss the days when one book a year was the standard. That really allowed authors to research their subject matter and the settings of their novels and develop exceptionally unique and creative stories.

Susi:  Describe a typical writing day for Kyra Davis.

Kyra:  I turn on my music and start by reading a chapter of a book that inspires me. Something exceptionally well written. Then I just write and write and write!

Susi:  Do you have any advice to offer to new  writers?

Kyra:  Aspiring writers: If you’re not already active on social media, now’s the time to start. Maybe even start a blog. And if you’re writing genre fiction, look into self-publishing. Today publishing houses want to see that you can get your own following and create excitement about your work. If your self-published novel is a success the publishing houses will be lining up to offer you a contract. And if they know that you are capable of being successful without them they’re even more likely to give you the promotional support and attention you’ll need to be an even bigger success with them.

Susi:  Your biggest mistake as a writer? If any?

Kyra:  After my first book, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte, was a success I got complacent. I took my eye off the ball in regards to publicity and wasn’t as proactive as I needed to be in order to get the word out about the sequel, Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights.

Rapid Fire

Pet Peeve

I absolutely love my family, but why can’t any of them figure out how to properly load a dishwasher?!

First thing you notice about a person

Their smile (or lack thereof).

Hidden talents

I know how to work it on a dance floor!

Prized possession

My grandfather found a seahorse washed up on the beach, brought it home, used it to make a mold and then melted down some silver scraps he was able to get his hands on to make a seahorse necklace for my grandmother. It’s now mine and it means the world to me.

Currently Reading

My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman

Fave drink

Toss up between vodka and coffee. Depends on the time of day.

Fave TV Show

Probably Game Of Thrones (although it got REALLY dark this season)

Coffee or Tea

What’s tea?

Favorite Male Actor

My husband’s a director and screenwriter, which means we’re friends with some amazingly talented celebrity actors. They’re really wonderful, sensitive people…which means I can’t answer that question without getting in trouble.

Favorite Female Actress

See above.

Favorite Movie

Toss up between The Contender and Nothing But The Truth.

Any parting words from the author….

In many ways, I think Just One Lie is the most romantic book I’ve ever written. A sexy, edgy (at times dark), modern day fairytale. I’m really interested in seeing the readers reviews, good and bad, to find out if they agree!

Thank you Kyra for taking time out of your busy schedule.  It was awesome getting to know more about you and I am sure your fans will agree. And having just finished Just One Lie, I agree.  I absolutely loved it.  My full review is coming up on blog later this week.

EXCERPT:

It is the perfect moment…until I spot him standing near the corner of the room. He’s almost entirely in the shadows, his features barely visible, but still, I recognize him. There’s something about the way that man holds himself. Right now he’s leaning against a beam, his arms crossed over his chest, chin up. Like with a lion, it’s difficult to tell if he’s on the verge of sleeping or attacking. The first time I saw him-when was that, a year ago? No, over thirteen months since we met-I couldn’t stop staring. I loved his high, chiseled cheekbones and his lightly tanned skin that hinted at a possible Native American heritage, or maybe Latino. But then his bright green eyes insisted that the story wasn’t so straightforward. Oh, and I loved his tribal tattoos and the way his full lips curved into a slow, sensual smile when he saw me for the first time at that club in Seattle. An aspiring musician is how he described himself, but that night, when he sang to me, I could see that his talent was a lot more than aspirational.

His first name is Ash-maybe it’s short for Asher or Ashley, I don’t know, and at the time I didn’t care. I just recall thinking that a man with a name like that had to have a story to tell, one that involved passion and adventure and yeah, okay, maybe a little destruction. We talked for hours and I had felt like I understood him in a way that I had never understood anyone else. And then, later, I realized I didn’t know a thing about him. All our words and intimacies had left us strangers.

Ash is the stranger who took my life.

One night with him, one night of rapture. That’s all it took to put an end to Melody Fitzgerald.

And as if killing me wasn’t enough, this son of a bitch has reappeared and he’s fucking with my moment!

I pull my eyes away and find Rick, the owner of the club, standing at the edge of the bar. Next to him is a couple. A man with light brown hair and chiseled chin with his arm wrapped around an ironed-straight blonde with the sinuous figure of a runway model. All these beautiful people are here to see me! That’s what I have to focus on. Not him. Never, ever him.

And yet, even as I refuse to bring my eyes back to Ash, my mind can’t seem to leave him.

The music pushes me forward, forcing me to continue even as I feel my chest tighten. There’s not enough air in here for this. How could I have not noticed that before? Tonio jumps into his guitar solo and I use the opportunity to take a deep breath, inadvertently inhaling the unmistakable scent of marijuana floating up from somewhere on the dance floor. Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter. None of this can matter, nothing but the music and what it can do. With new resolve I fall back into the song, attacking it with even more ferocity than before. The crowd hears it and loves it.

And now it’s me that’s moving, across the stage and back again, running, screaming, and the crowd screams right back. This is everything. But then there he is, leaning against that beamn, just…watching me. Has he followed me? Isn’t one death enough for him? The question stirs up some rage I’ve been trying to set aside since our last meeting. Impulsively I knock the microphone stand to the ground with the smack of my open palm. The crowd thinks it’s part of the act and so I go on, finding that I can rejoice in anger as much as any other emotion. As we reach the last stanza, Traci’s and Tonio’s voices join mine, and the sound is an assult on anyone who would ever dream of challenging us. Maybe tomorrow they’ll say I’m a cross between Courtney Love and Fiona Apple. Maybe they’ll say the whole band is destined for fame and greatness. Yeah, that’s what they’ll say, those who are sober enough to remember. But right now they just cheer as our song comes to an end.

“Thank you,” I whisper into the mic. I look back at Ash. Even from here I cans see that he’s clapping, but it’s a slow, purposeful movement. He puts his hand to his mouth, kisses his palm, and then extends his arm leisurely toward me. It’s not so much that he’s blowing me a kiss as he is offering it to me. Inviting me to climb down from my pedestal and take it from him. Again I inhale deeply. “So, I gotta ask you guys something,” I continue. “It’s the end of an era and you’re bringing in the new millennium at Apocalypse listening to a band called fucking Resurrection. Is that tripping anyone else out?” There were yells of approval and at least one person cries hell yes! “By the way,” I add, “it’s really just Resurrection, only our parents call usfucking Resurrection.” General laughter and one woman screams out, “Parents suck!”

Ooh, if these guys only knew how much I agree with that one. “Incase you missed it, this stud on the guitar is Tonio.” Tonio strums out a few wrenching chords as the crowd cheers. “The hot chick in the leather mini is Traci.” Traci plays the opening piano notes of “Sympathy for the Devil.” It’s doubtful that this crowd recognizes it even as they whistle and scream for her, but I do, and the reference makes me laugh. “And allow me to introduce our new drummer! Brad’s only been with us for a week and he’s killing it, am I right?” The crowd roars as Brad launches into a drum solo that is so intense, so aggressive, and so beautiful I turn my back on the audience, momentarily forgetting all of them, even my killer, as I lock eyes with this man who must have sold his soul for this kind of talent. His lips curve into a little half smile as his sticks fly across the stretched membrane surfaces. Physically he doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the group-too athletic, too clean cut, too aristocratic-but the rest of his viciously beautiful rhythm is downright sinful.

When he ends with a perfectly executed clash, I realize for the first time that I’ve been holding my breath. The crowd cries out, solidifying the triumph as I match his smile with my own and slowly pivot back to the room. “And of course, I’m Mercy. I…” but I give up on continuing as the crowd erupts again, drowning me out with their cheers, chanting my name.

My new name, a choice I made for myself only months ago, now reverberating through the room: Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.It’s on the lips and tongues of everyone in this room…except for his. Beneath the harmonious hum of voices, like an insidious undercurrent, I can hear his silent accusations: That is not who you are. You are not Mercy.

I swallow and look into the spotlight, letting the light assault my vision, temporarily turning the entire club into a murky blur as the crowd quiets enough for me to speak again. “So we got”-I turn and point to the large red numbers projected by a laser clock onto the wall behind my head-“fifteen minutes until the four horsemen arrive. I’m thinking we better stop wasting time and get back into this!”

The crowd cheers again. I spot Rick giving me a thumbs-up as the rugby guy next to him pumps his fist in the air. And again Tonio strums the strings of his guitar. And again my voice rises high then low, elating the crowd and giving me the fortitude to turn my thoughts away from the beast who watches me from the shadows.

And when it’s 11:59 we stop midsong. I hold my hands up in the air and point to the numbers. “It’s almost Y2K time, people!” I cry and glance back at Rick, who is staring intently at his watch. And then he lifts his hand and begins to tick off the seconds with his fingers as I count them down into the mic, “Ten, nine, eight…”

The crowd’s counting with me. “…seven, six…” The beautiful black man has raised his glass in the air; a young woman behind him scrambles on top of the bar with a small video camera in her hand. “…three…” The muscle boy is bounding his fist against the stage. “…two, one!”

And the room erupts. Confetti flies everywhere and the kind of fragmented light that comes from a disco ball splashes across the celebrants. Tonio pops a bottle of cheap champagne he’d been hiding in the wings and douses everyone in the band with it before passing it around. I let the bubbles tickle my tongue, then turn back to the microphone and launch into a happier, more celebratory tune. The people standing beneath us have woven together like vines against the wall, limbs tangled with limbs, lips against lips. There is no separation, no individual distinctions. They all have become a snarled mass of exhilaration and lust.

Except for Ash. He continues to just stand there, apart from all of it. He’s simply watching me. Waiting for me to come to him and claim my kiss.
