Top Five Ways to Kindle an Autumn Romance #FridayFive

No matter where you are (in the northern hemisphere anyway), it is fall. Though the weather is pretty much the same year round where I am, that doesn’t prevent me from getting into the spirit of some wonderful fall activities.

Here are some suggestions that you might enjoy with a significant other.

1.  Fall Fantasy Foliage Hike with Passionate Picnic

In certain geographic areas, fall is truly a beautiful time of year. The summer heat has faded away but jeans and a sweater are still adequate protection against the elements. The trees fire up a spectacular display of color as they go dormant, exiting for the season in blazing glory. Take your sweetie and enjoy a last outdoor hoorah before the chill of winter sets in. Now is a great time for hiking and biking. The weather is cool and the scenery plentiful. Fill a picnic basket with hearty fare and head out! Just remember to pick a private spot when you spread out that picnic blanket.

2.  Sexy Snuggling on the Hearth

Is there anything more enticing than a roaring fire on a chilly day? Yes! How about snuggling with your honey in front of said fire? The warmth from the flames will keep your skin toasty until you create your own heat! A hot toddy wouldn’t hurt either.

3.  Hot Harvest Hayride

The quintessential hayride has all the romantic elements – low lighting, soft cushiony space (hopefully), close quarters and layered clothing to hide your forays into the intimate space of a companion. Such naughty flirting is bound to build the anticipation for an intimate encounter…later!

4.  Frisky Football Game

When there is a snap in the air, sports fans turn to the snap of the football. Mix it up one weekend. Instead of the couch snuggle during the game, take a blanket and some hot drinks to the stadium. No one will ever guess what’s going on underneath the covers!

5.  Alluring Apple Bobbing

Don’t leave the apple bobbing to the kiddies. Instead of the traditional bobbing in the water, hang the apple from a string and go at it on opposite sides with your chosen target. This activity presents many opportunities for intimate contact J

What do you find romantic this time of year?

Malia Mallory Presents Five Tips for the Perfect Romantic Gesture #FridayFive

Young happy couple with rose, outdoorRomantic gestures are things you do to show your partner that you are thinking about him/her and also a way to show affection. The great thing is that a little goes a long way toward keeping that special connection alive. Thoughtful gestures can even stoke the fire into flames.

1. Touch. It’s easy sometimes to let distance come between us. Make a special effort to hold hands while walking. Give a kiss – a real kiss, not just a peck on the cheek, when saying hello or goodbye. Wake up a few minutes early and engage in a nice morning snuggle.

2. Communicate. Tell your partner how you feel and not just in intimate moments. Write down a heartfelt sentiment. Slip it into a place where it is sure to be found. This can be a post-it on the bathroom mirror or a card in a briefcase. How about sending an intimate text or leaving a suggestive voicemail?

3. Do Something Special. A special or unexpected action can be lovely. You know your significant other’s preferences. Make a special trip to the bakery for that well-loved pie. Cook a favorite meal. Indulge in an activity that your partner enjoys, but maybe you don’t. Do a little pampering by giving a massage.

4. Surprise. There’s nothing like the element of surprise to create a spark. Plan a romantic weekend getaway. Present your partner with a thoughtful gift like a cd of a favorite artist or tickets to a show. Have a picnic.

5. Celebrate. Don’t wait for a holiday or a big promotion. Celebrate today. Make plans to meet for lunch during the week. Break out that special bottle of wine. Make a reservation at a nice restaurant.

I think the theme of these tips is not to settle into a rut. Be mindful. Be considerate. Let your partner know how much you appreciate having him or her in your life in small ways every day.

What’s your favorite romantic gesture?

Malia Mallory Discusses – What is Sensation Play?

His_Desire_Her_Surrender_200x300Sensation play can involve the deprivation of sense imputs such as wearing a blindfold. It can also involve the stimulation of the senses by using feathers or tickling. In His Need, Her Desire, the sensation play is primarily temperature play, the application of hot and cold, though a blindfold is involved too!

Marcus, our hero, utilizes wax and ice to create a series of sensual sensations for his partner, Tabitha. Wax play, like all such activities, needs to be safe, sane and consensual. Different waxes melt at different temperatures, so care must be taken not to burn the recipient. The application of the wax can produce in an artistic result on the skin, particularly if multiple colors are used.

Ice play is often utilized with wax for contrast. Ice can also be uniquely shaped for use. The melting slipperiness can lead to some interesting situations! Ice is often one of the easy entry points into sensation play.

His Need, Her Desire Blurb

Tabitha Quinn didn’t come to Hawaii to be spanked. But when vacationing businessman Marcus Granger saves her from drowning, they begin an affair that moves from the beach to the bedroom and straight into an experience Tabitha’s never had before: dark-haired, blue-eyed Marcus is a dominant, and spanking is just the beginning. The sex is intense, the emotion even more so, until they both must decide if this is a holiday fling or the real thing.

His Need, Her Desire Excerpt

Tabitha’s smile grew wide. She held out her hand. “Really, I can’t thank you enough for your help.”

He held her hand in a firm grasp a shade longer than necessary, but Tabitha didn’t mind. She enjoyed looking at him. Though he had probably shaved that morning, an attractive shadow highlighted his chin and strong jawline.

“I’m glad I was in the right place.”

Tabitha released his hand. “So, where’s your sister?”

“My sister? How did you know?”

Tabitha bit her lip. “I’m sorry to say that I eavesdropped a bit. I was sitting near you at dinner last evening.”

“Eavesdropping? That seems extremely naughty.”

Tabitha was caught off guard by the tone of his voice. He was teasing, and yet, there was a thread of authority running through his words. Tabitha tried to suppress a shiver. “Well, sometimes I just can’t help myself.”

Marcus appeared disarmed by her honesty. “Are you traveling with anyone?”

Tabitha gave him a playful look. “Why do you ask?”

Marcus smiled. “Because I’m interested in knowing the answer, of course.”

“Well, if you’re thinking about ditching my body at sea, I’ve got six family members waiting for me in my hotel room upstairs. If you’re thinking about asking me to dinner, there is no reason why you shouldn’t.” Tabitha amazed herself. Where is this coming from? This man brought something out in her. She’d bet those broad shoulders and sexy smile had enticed many a woman.

He laughed. “You have nothing to worry about. I never use force, unless of course, it is desired.”

“Oh?” The truth burst into her mind. It suddenly became clear that he was fishing around a bit. There had been several hints here and there, but it seemed like he might be looking for a certain sort of woman. No, he couldn’t be. I’m imagining things.

“It’s true. I would be pleased if you joined me for dinner this evening.”

Tabitha did a mental fist pump in her mind. Woohoo! Dinner with Gorgeous Guy. “What did you have in mind?”

“Would you be averse to allowing me to surprise you?”

Tabitha hesitated then plunged ahead. “Not at all. It’s clear you have excellent taste.”

Marcus raised an eyebrow. “What makes you say that?”

“Well, we both dined at the same restaurant last night, and I thought it was terrific.”

“Ah, well, my meal was less than pleasant unfortunately.” His tone indicated the subject was off-limits.

“Perhaps it was the company and not the food?”

Marcus laughed. “You are undoubtedly right and surprisingly honest.”

“My mother would say that my tongue is quicker than my brain.”

The corners of Marcus’s mouth lifted. “I’ve always been a fan of quick tongues.”

Bug-In with Romance Blog H0p – Food Storage

Portrair of  person in gas mask. Soldier on warOkay Preppers, it’s time for my entry for the Bug-In with Romance Blog Hop. Should the end be nigh either through hurricane or North Korea, what do you do? Well first, you’ll want romances to read! Well, maybe not first – you probably want to eat, but after the eating, drinking and shelter – maybe you’ll want to read.

I’m going to bring you some information about food storage. We are pretty big on food storage at my house. I’m not talking just about having a stocked pantry or a year’s worth of dried beans. I’m more referring to the fact that we eat packed lunches every day (hot ones) and I often pull out a homemade entrée from the freezer when I don’t feel like cooking. I’m a huge advocate of cooking a bunch and then freezing it, which is how I accomplish these two things without losing my mind.

However, in an emergency scenario, the freezer is probably not the best plan for food storage (unless perhaps you have a generator or are off the grid).

So – what do you do?

Well, you can go the easy route and get a pre-made kit of dehydrated food. Make sure you have the needed water on hand (plus water for drinking) and you are all set. It might be nice to have a way to heat some of the items, but you can get by. You could also have a similar setup with MREs (meals ready to eat). They don’t usually require the extra water.

Another way to go is to stock up on the items yourself. This would include dried items you can rehydrate like beans and things that keep well for long periods at room temperature like meat jerky and dried fruit. Shelf-safe milk in cans or Tetrapaks is very convenient as well. Just don’t forget to rotate a bit now and again.

But what about fresh and prepared items? If you have some notice, bags of ice are great to stock up on. I personally keep a couple of bags of ice in my deep freeze almost all the time. You don’t even have to buy it. You can make your own ice and put in in bags. Ice in a cooler will keep things for a surprisingly long time – especially if you have a quality cooler.

Another option is an evaporative cooler. You can make this yourself with porous ceramic (i.e., a couple large flowerpots). Instructions can be found online.

Lastly, don’t forget to think about foods that we might normally refrigerate that really don’t need it. For example, neither peanut butter nor eggs really need to be refrigerated. Produce like potatoes, onions and carrots can last quite a while in a cool spot. Root vegetables kept in sand or peat moss can last for months without spoilage.

I have really just scratched the surface here. Consider some of the options and what works best for you, and then do a little research. You’ll be prepared for anything in no time.

What do you do to prepare for an emergency?

Finding a New Favorite

I’m a voracious reader. As a result, I’m on a constant quest for new reading material. I primarily read romances, but I do dip into some other genres as well. Therefore, when I come across a new author to enjoy, I’m thrilled.

One such experience happened a few years ago. I came across a novel from author I didn’t know at the time. The novel was To Sir Philip, With Love by Julia Quinn. I read the book and liked it a great deal. The heroine, Eloise, was spunky. The story had humor, romance and sexiness as well. I was delighted to find it was book 5 in a series. What a find!

What authors have you discovered by chance?

Stay tuned for the blurb from my newest release – His Need, Her Desire.

Stay tuned below for an excerpt from my newest release – His Need, Her Desire.

Who Are These Alpha Males?

This blog hop comes at a perfect time for me. I just released a new erotic romance entitled His Need, Her Desire. This gives me the opportunity to introduce you to my hero, Marcus, who is the consummate alpha male. Marcus Granger likes to take charge, not only in the boardroom but in the bedroom as well.

He’s met his match in Tabitha Quinn. She’s feisty, funny and more than a little intrigued by Marcus’s dominant nature.

So what makes Marcus an alpha male? Is it his self-confidence? That certainly helps. Is it his inner strength? That’s a good quality. But what delineates the line between a dominant alpha male and an overbearing, obnoxious oaf?

I believe it is the tempering of the personality. Marcus is not only attracted to Tabitha, he cares for her. He’s considerate and thoughtful in his words and actions toward her. His intent is not to use her, but rather to bring them both pleasure and increase their intimacy. Who could argue with that?

What is a characteristic that you find attractive in an alpha male?
