Five Caliente Lines from His Desire, Her Surrender

My newest release is entitled His Desire, Her Surrender. It is the second book in a series and the sequel to His Need, Her Desire. I thought I’d select a few favorite lines to share from the book to entice you. They are taken out of context, but I think you can use your imagination to figure out what might be happening.

1.  He tapped into her most secret needs — her desire to be taken and tamed.

2.  Tabitha quivered, balanced on the precipice between coherent thought and mindless passion.

3.  “I seem to have developed a rather sticky situation.”

4.  “You know I’ve been on self-service since Dennis and I broke up.”

5.  As Marcus introduced her to their dining companions, Tabitha opened her clutch under the tablecloth and thrust her panties into his hand.

Which of the five is your favorite?

Blurb for His Desire, Her Surrender

Tabitha Quinn’s Hawaii vacation was anything but ordinary. Dominant billionaire Marcus Granger saved her life, swept her into his bed, and then left her heartbroken. Now she’s back in New York, mourning the man she’s sure she’ll never see again.

Marcus may have left handprints on her skin, but Tabitha’s left handprints on his heart: he tracks her down, and they resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands.

Tabitha belongs to Marcus body and soul in bed, but she worries she doesn’t belong in his high-stakes world. They’ve already dodged a murder attempt, and now Marcus is fighting off a competitor’s takeover. When the rival company obtains critical information, suspicion falls on Tabitha. She has to prove she’s innocent–and worthy to wear Marcus’s collar.

Want to Make the Yummy Chicken from His Desire, Her Surrender?

His_Desire_Her_Surrender_200x300His Desire, Her Surrender was released in March. It was a relief to have it finished after so long. It is the sequel to His Need, Her Desire, which was released in October. As you can see, it took me some time to get it down.

My characters, Marcus and Tabitha, embark on a whirlwind romance when they meet on vacation in Hawaii. Back to New York, the challenge is making it work with the real world pressures around them.

At one point in the story, they go away together for the weekend and Tabitha whips up a great chicken and rice dish for the two of them to enjoy. I based the dish on one I actually make for my own family. It is easy and a tasty favorite at our house.

The recipe is from the great Mark Bittman and his book How to Cook Everything. I’ve simplified his directions a bit. The taste is subtle but yummy! Leftovers freeze well.

Chicken Biryani

4 T butter

Large diced onion

Salt and pepper

Pinch saffron

10 cardamom pods

5 cloves (whole)

1 cinnamon stick

1 T minced ginger – I use jarred.

1-1/2 cups basmati rice

3 cups chicken stock – I use broth and it works fine.

Chicken (1 whole, or 3 – 4 lbs. pieces) I use boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut up.

1/4 cup slivered almonds (optional)

1. Sauté onions with 2 T butter, salt and pepper in a large pan for 5 – 10 minutes.

2. Add spices (saffron, cloves, cardamom, ginger) and stir together for 1 minute.

3. Add the rice, stir until glossy, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Add the stock/broth, the chicken and more salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then lower heat bubbling gently.

5. Cover and cook, undisturbed, until the chicken and rice are both tender and liquid is absorbed. About 25 minutes. If using a whole chicken or large pieces, they should reach 165 degrees.

6. If necessary, add more stock/broth, recover and cook for 5 minutes.

7. Heat remaining 2 T butter in separate pan. Add almonds. Brown lightly for 3 minutes. Pour over the top of your chicken mixture.

Excerpt from His Desire, Her Surrender

Marcus tapped his stomach. “I don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry. If you fix something, I’ll reward you later. Deal?”

“Sure.” Tabitha pulled chicken from the refrigerator as Marcus left her to find her way around the kitchen. She planned to cook something quick and easy on the stovetop. She located onions, chopped them and tossed them into a sauté pan. Further searching turned up rice and spices. A little saffron and cardamom and she’d have something tasty.

Once everything was in the pan, she tracked down the makings of a salad. That would do, she thought, chicken and rice with salad. Simple but appetizing.

As she set the table, Marcus reappeared, towels in hand. “I thought you might want one for sitting.” He spread one on the chair at the head of the table and the other on the chair to the side.

Tabitha handed Marcus the salad bowl. “This whole nudity thing. I’m not sure if I’d get used to it. Might get chilly.”

Marcus stole a carrot slice out of the salad and tossed it in his mouth. “I imagine so. But it can be a fun change of pace.”

“Yes.” Tabitha brought the chicken and rice to the table, and they settled in.

Marcus gazed on the food with appreciation. “This is great. I’m starving.”

“I hope you like it. I make it quite often.”

Marcus placed one hand on her thigh as he took a bite with the other.

Tabitha’s fork stopped in mid-air as heat flooded her. She was glad for the towel underneath her. The last thing she wanted was to stain the upholstery.

Marcus massaged her skin and slid his hand between her thighs.

Tabitha set down her fork. “Marcus!”

He continued eating. “Yes?”

“I can’t eat when you do that.”

“You can’t?” He took another bite of chicken, clearly enjoying it. His fingers searched her intimate recesses.

Tabitha pursed her lips, displaying an amused frown. “No. I’m too distracted.”

“Mmm. That is unfortunate. This meal is wonderful.”

“It’s hard to think about eating right now.”

Marcus maintained his innocent air while he explored her moistening skin. “Really? I’m having no trouble at all.” He ingested another bite.

His Desire, Her Surrender Excerpt

Tabitha couldn’t suppress a seductive smile. “I seem to have developed a rather sticky situation.”

Marcus’s expression revealed his growing desire. “So you have.”

Perhaps you’d be willing to offer assistance?” Tabitha enjoyed playing the teasing coquette.

“I do believe I’m willing.” Marcus rose from his seat and motioned for Tabitha to move toward him. He grasped her by the shoulder and leaned into her cleavage. His tongue traveled the sweet pattern of the chocolate. “You’re right. This is divine.”

Tabitha shivered. She knew he spoke about more than the chocolate.

This was the Marcus she remembered. This was the Marcus her heart refused to release. Tabitha unbuttoned her blouse and shrugged it off. Her back still toward him, she slid her skirt down over her hips, along with her panties. She stepped out, revealing stockings and garters instead of pantyhose. Her fingers reached for the garter.

Tabitha flashed a smile, at once playful and bashful. “I might have utilized you in a little fantasy of sorts.”His_Desire_Her_Surrender_200x300

Marcus nipped her lip. “What do you mean?”

Tabitha ducked her head, embarrassment getting the best of her. “Well, I had a little excess energy to … release, and I used you.”

The patent leather of the cuffs reflected even in the low light. Decorative black ribbons adorned the surface and the insides were lightly padded. His_Desire_Her_Surrender_200x300Two thin silver chains linked one cuff to the other, keeping them within a foot of one another. The matching paddle displayed a black ribbon on the handle, accenting its curves.

Marcus took the paddle and wrist cuffs from Tabitha and made a downward motion with his hand. Tabitha sank to her knees.

Marcus placed the paddle on the bench. He took one leather wrist cuff and unfastened it. “Hold out your hand.”
