Hearts On Fire Valentines Hop

I wanted to do something a little different from just talking about Valentines Day or a 

Valentines Day story…I wanted to discuss how I see love. I write interracial and multicultural romances. As my tagline says “Where Love Is Colorblind.”  I truly believe that love is colorblind or it should be.  We are all human and the color of your skin, where your from shouldn’t matter.  I will even go as far to say that, that even transcends to gender.  In this blog hop I will be giving away a book from my backlist excluding the print books.  If the winner (from my blog) picks a series…please pick the first book in the series.  In order to win you must comment on the blog post and share this post on Facebook and twitter.  If you don’t have twitter just let me know within your comment.

 Grand prize is a heart pendant with a 20 carat lab ruby and 14k gold chain PLUS signed paperbacks from each author  – entire series by Victoria and Kym.  Now on to the post…



First and foremost I want to say interracial romances are still just romances. They have the added flavor of bringing different races together but when you peel back the layers it should still have all the elements of a regular romance story.


One thing that I think of when is to remember the history of interracial relationships. Is the marriage of Richard and Mildred Loving. They married in 1958 when it was illegal to do so. Interracial marriages didn’t become legal until 1967 and sadly enough the last state that held on till 2000 was Alabama.


So when one thinks of that and writes IR it’s still brand new territory.


Why do I write Interracial Romances?

I think there are several reasons people choose to write them. There isn’t truly an easy answer or a right answer. I do it because I wanted to see myself in a heroine. I have been involved in interracial relationships since I was a teen. My parents were military and we didn’t ever see anyone’s color we saw the person beneath the skin. I also like writing interracial love because I have two small biracial children who need to see people that represent who they are in love.


I’d also like to add that there is so much flavor when you pepper a story with people from different cultures. I also hope that my characters always show that they are true to themselves and through their conflict there is growth.


I have several books which feature a black woman and a white male but I’ve also written where my male characters are Latino. I even went outside of the box and wrote a lesbian couple who were a black female and a white female. To me love sees no color right along without seeing someone’s gender.


Happy Valentines day to all!

Karmic Lust, 2

Eva Jackson has had more than her share of lifetimes to play games with other people’s emotions. Now, demoted and devoid of her powers, she’s left with the feeling that there’s something more she’s missing.

Temptation was the one thing that always stood in the way.

Clay Quinones, her demon lover of old, is determined that Eva will walk the straight and narrow and learn the error of her ways. When danger looms, is it too late for these two star-crossed lovers to love one another again? Or will Eva’s past make it hard for a demon to be redeemed?

Be Warned: anal sex, m/m interaction



He positioned himself behind her and leaned in close, his face pressed to her ear. “Any time you call my name.” He nipped her earlobe. His words seemed incomplete to her, and she had to ask.

“Any time I call your name what?”

“It will bring me to you. We still have that connection.”

As he spoke, he’d placed his hands on the front buttons of her white shirt. Slowly he freed each one from its buttonhole until he spread her shirt wide. She was on display for him, and it thrilled her. Strong, capable hands undid the front clasp of her bra, and he pulled the cups away from her breasts.

Clay was right—there was a connection. There always had been, but she was determined to break it. To have him relinquish his hold on her one way or the other was her goal. But first … first she needed his touch.

The wet heat of his tongue made her whimper as he licked across her earlobe and then down to her neck. He grasped her breasts and tugged at the nipples in unison.

“Don’t stop the show, Eva.” His command ran through her head.

“You need to stop telling me what to do, Clay.”

Though she said this, she couldn’t stop even to prove him wrong. Her thighs were already coated in her juices, and more of it was spilling out in copious amounts as she thrust in two fingers and began to finger fuck herself.

“You have a full store out there, Eva. So are you going to be able to stop yourself from coming so hard that they hear every little sound you make?”

She sobbed and bit her lip. His words affected her in a way that she was sure he wanted. The thought of being the center of attention while coming was thrilling to her. He knew her every little secret.

“I want that, Clay, but not here…” she stuttered out, and swallowing, she tried to sound a bit more convincing, “not here.”

“Then I suggest when you start coming, you press your mouth to my arm and muffle the sound.” He kissed her hard and then nipped her bottom lip. “Now back to making yourself come for me.”

“This wasn’t for you,” she gasped out as the sensations originating from her hand radiated throughout her body. Liar, her body seemed to say.

“That’s my Eva, strong-willed and always ready for a fight even in the midst of a highly erotic situation.” He smacked his fingers against her clit, and she groaned. “Let me let you in on a little secret. This is always for me.”

She was too far gone to argue that point with him, and his smack just sent her into a hard orgasm. With a moan she pressed her mouth to his arm to try to stifle the sound of her coming. When her body finally stopped shaking, she shuddered and opened her eyes. Clay was still looking down at her with a smirk. She watched in awe as he brought his hand up from her pussy and licked his fingers clean.

“I’ve always adored how you taste, Eva.”

She tried to not let his words bring up the jealousies that she’d been holding on to forever. It was time to let those go, right? But the old adage of habits dying hard and all that jazz seriously did apply. She wanted to ask him why he had always seemed to be following after Lili if he adored and wanted her.

Jealousy. It had to stop, but how?

“Shut up and kiss me, Clay.”

He smirked more and leaned back in, kissing her deeply. He thrust his tongue into her mouth, letting her taste her juices as their tongues dueled. Sometimes it was better to not talk. She knew that now.


How’s that for adding some heat to a Valentine’s Day blog hop?


Now for the question:  What did Clay tell Eva would always happen?
