Merry Ménage Giveaway Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the

Now that winter is here I am sure we could all use a little something extra to keep us warm at night. What's better than something, well someone of course. But, why stop there? Why not add to that and invite an extra lover or two. You know what they say, right? The more, the merrier. That's when ménage comes into play, and boy let me tell you, a menage can be quite the scenario one needs to get all warm and toasty. Hell, why am I sugarcoating it? A ménage in any quantity of partners can be quite hot and down right sexy. With so many couples getting stuck in ruts these days it isn't so surprising that some of them are opening their minds to the possibility of sharing their partner with someone else. Even if that interlude is only for one night. 

I've written a few books which have ménage story lines in them, so I thought it was only appropriate to highlight one of those books for this hop. I went back through my archives for this one. Sudden Devotion is one of my older releases, but it still is one of my favorites. It has all the ménage elements one could hope for with a little bit extra to keep you on your toes! ;-) 

Nicole's Other Books
Sara is inexperienced with men, but finds her untapped sexuality is bursting beneath the pressure of lustful desires. Mitch works with Sara and knows office romances can go horribly wrong, but that doesn’t stop him from going ahead with his plan to seduce her. Soon, the two find themselves in an erotic game of pleasure. Their affair proves to be more than either of them anticipated. After only a couple of days their relationship intensifies into a firestorm of passion and they begin to fall in love.

Claudia works with them both and isn’t happy when Mitch rejects her advances. Not willing to take no for an answer she uses every form of manipulation to drive the couple apart. Is their relationship strong enough to handle the betrayal that they believe to be true? Or will the thought of losing each other be the catalyst to keep them together?

Now, how can you win a copy of Sudden Devotion? Well that part is easy! Just leave me a comment below telling me what the anything! That's right you can say anything...well as long as it's nice!

The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

I’ve been tagged in the Next Big Thing Blog Hop!

Okay, I will admit that I had no idea what my sweet friend, Author, Amber Lea Easton was talking about – or doing for that matter – when she tagged me in this post. But hey… I generally don’t know what's going on so that’s pretty normal for me. 

So, now that I’ve finished my writing for the day I am going to play along and share with you. Because hey…sometimes you have to be a team player, right?

Here are the rules of the hop:

  • Give credit to the one who tagged you – which in my case would be ‘cute as a button Amber’ so thanks sweetie!
  • Answer the following eight questions about your latest work in progress.
  • Tag five other authors and let them know you’ve tagged them.

I have a few works in progress, but I think I want to share the one which nearly has the words “THE END” included in it. So, without further adieu let the fun begin…

What is the title of your book?
Surrounded by Roses (fka Submerged in Desire)

Where did the idea come from for your book?
The same place much of my inspiration of the past year has come from. My fiancé, Zac. He is – as I’ve said many times – my real life happily ever after. I can’t help but work him into a story or two, or three, or…okay, so I use him a lot for inspiration! LOL

What genre does your book fall under?
Erotic Contemporary Romance (and of course, as with most of my books there is a military back story)

What characters would you choose to play the characters in a movie?
Oh, I hate this question. I am never good at this. I hardly ever use actual people as a vision. Instead, I just conjure them up in my mind’s eye. ;)

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your novel?
I’m not a very ‘drafty’ kind of gal. I write and send my ramblings to my beautiful and lovely (major sucking up here) beta reader, Nikki.

What other books would you compare it to within your genre?
Umm… I guess you could say they’re all very Nicole Morgan-ish. LOL. I threw in a conflict, an obstacle and a tragedy as I do in most of my books. I can’t help it. I need conflict in my stories. What kind of world would it be if everyone was in love and just having sex all the time? Umm… actually, never mind. That doesn’t sound so bad. ;)

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Well, once again we’re coming back to my fiancé. Coincidentally the hero in the book is a submariner in the Navy. Imagine my surprise when my muse conjured up that story line, what with the shocking similarity to my fiancé’s former line of work in which he was a submariner in the Navy. Weird how that happened. LOL

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? How about a teaser?
This is the second erotic contemporary I’ve written where I’ve dealt with the issue of PTSD in the Military. There are so many stories out there with happily ever after that I wanted to show something real. Post traumatic stress is a very real disorder and one that I feel more awareness needs to go toward.

Here’s an unedited teaser…

Emily rinsed off the last plate and placed it on the drying rack. As usual, the uneven slope of her kitchen counter caused water to spill onto the floor. She bent down with a towel and sopped up the mess.
“Don’t move.”
She turned her head sideways and saw Trevor standing in the doorway. He had a towel around his waist and his hair was disheveled and wet from the shower.
“What is it? A spider?”
“A snake.” He said.
“Oh my God! Where? Trevor, get it! Kill it! You know I hate snakes.” She answered frantically.
“Umm…okay, but you seemed to like it last night.”
She cocked her eyebrow and stood upright and placed her hands on her hips. “2nd Class Petty Officer Purllington, I ought to make you drop and give me twenty. That was mean.”
“Well what do you expect? I come in the kitchen and see you bent over, the t-shirt doesn’t cover you and between your thighs I see the tempting little sight of your pink pussy lips. I’m only human, baby.”
She smiled at him mischievously. When he spoke to her that way it always turned her on. They weren’t pretty or romantic words. In fact they were just the opposite. Completely raw and devoid of any sentimental value, they spoke to her on a primal level. Hearing him caused her nipples to pucker and despite her messy hair and unkempt appearance she suddenly felt the seductress willing to take charge and get exactly what she wanted.
Slowly she walked toward him. With her tongue she licked her lower lip while looking down at his towel. When she got within a whisper of him she caressed her protruding nipples through her t-shirt. The action may have been for his benefit, but it shot little sparks of desire down throughout her entire body.  
“Damn you, woman. You are like a drug do you know that?”
His deep and raspy voice told her how much her little tease was working. She loved driving him as crazy he made her. There time apart was too long. It made her want to tattoo the memory of her to his soul.
“Oh yeah? Does the sailor need a fix?”
He un-tucked the edge of his towel and allowed it to fall to the floor. His cock stood at attention, like a sailor saluting his commander.
“What do you think?” he answered.

Men and Women of the Military Blog Hop

Welcome to Men and Women of the Military's Blog Hop hosted by The Jeep Diva!

For those of you familiar with my books you know that I have written my share of military heroes. While I have written military men, I've never tackled a military woman or heroine in my books. Which makes me think that is definitely something I'll have to consider for the future.

I'm currently writing my 7th book which has a military back story to it, but for this blog hop I decided to spotlight my baby... my series that started it all... my Navy SEALs Series, Sweet Awakenings.

Every single one of these books is near and dear to my heart. So much so that it was hard to tie everything together in book 4 and type "The End". But, all good things must eventually come to an end so we can move on to the next thing, right?

Leave me a comment below (along with your email address) and tell me what branch of the military you want to see in a book. I've written about the SEALs since 2009. What do you want to see next? Two randomly chosen commentators will receive their choice of one of any of my SEAL books above.

Don't forget to stop by the many other stops on this hop (listed below) to increase your chances to win some AWESOME Prizes!!!

Nicole, Thank you for having me here today.


I love to give and you could be the winner! I will be giving away a $5 eGift card to a commenter at each blog stop and will give a bag full of goodies to the person who follows me to the most blogs and a gift to the host who gets the most commenters. You can find the blog tour hosts at my blog: or my website:

Attraction is a funny thing. It can be physical, spiritual, or a bonding of mutual experiences and likes. 

The physical attraction can start out with the other person catching your eye. His strong chin, blue eyes, nice hair, full lips, toned body. Maybe it’s the clothes he’s wearing. Cowboy hat and boots, Armani suit, Levis and work shirt, football uniform.  There is something about the person that catches your eye. For my characters in Secrets of a Mayan Moon,  Tino is drawn to the Isabella by her lithe body that is unrestrained by undergarments. Callous, yes. A man thing, definitely. Isabella is drawn to Tino’s voice. His soft, deep, accented voice. 

Bonding over mutual experiences and likes can deepen the initial physical attraction. Learning that you have similar likes or have been through similar experiences brings two people together mentally.  They can over look other imperfections if they feel the other person knows them. Isabella and Tino had different lives. Isabella being a genius raced through her schooling at prestigious schools while Tino and his family had to escape from their roots in Venezuela and start over at the poverty level in the United States. But they both have a deep appreciation for their family and their roots. They also have a deep sense of justice.

A spiritual attraction takes the connection to a higher level. This attraction draws on the heart and binds the two. Once the heart is actively drawn into the attraction it is inevitable that their futures will be entwined. In some instances it is a like Romeo and Juliet where there are outside forces that prevent them from having a future, but in most cases it is lasting marriages and fulfilled lives. For Isabella and Tino, the spiritual attraction grows even under unusual and sometimes dangerous situations. It is through those dangerous situations that they learn more about one another and the attraction grows. 

Which did you feel first for your significant other- physical, spiritual or the bonding of mutual experiences?

Secrets of a Mayan Moon

Child prodigy and now Doctor of Anthropology, Isabella Mumphrey, is about to lose her job at the university. In the world of publish or perish, her mentor’s request for her assistance on a dig is just the opportunity she’s been seeking. If she can decipher an ancient stone table—and she can—she’ll keep her department. She heads to Guatemala, but drug trafficking bad guys, artifact thieves, and her infatuation for her handsome guide wreak havoc on her scholarly intentions.

DEA agent Tino Kosta, is out to avenge the deaths of his family. He’s deep undercover as a jaguar tracker and sometimes jungle guide, but the appearance of a beautiful, brainy anthropologist heats his Latin blood taking him on a dangerous detour that could leave them both casualties of the jungle.


She deposited her backpack on the floor at her feet. The horn handle of a twelve inch Guatemalan blade protruded from the side pocket. Tino’s curiosity spiked another notch.
“I have a reservation. Dr. Isabella Mumphrey.”
Tino snapped the paper down and stared even harder at the woman. This was the frumpy, old anthropologist he was to guide? His gaze scanned the length of her one more time while tuning in the conversation.
“Ahh, Dr. Mumphrey, Dr. Martin said you were to get the finest room, no?” The clerk acted like a simpering fool giving the doctor her key and expounding on all the wonders of the hotel.
Gracias. May I borrow a paper and pencil? I need to make a list for the taxi driver.”
The clerk handed her the items. She stepped to the side of the counter and began writing.
Why would she make a list for a taxi driver? Curious, Tino folded the paper and strolled to a spot beside her. So intent on her list, she didn’t even acknowledge his presence as he leaned, reading the items. Army knife, candle, braided fishing line, hooks, swivels, 24 gauge snare wire…
“You are planning a trip into the jungle, no?”
She started at his voice. Deep green eyes rimmed in gold stared at him from behind wire-rimmed lenses. She blinked, focused on him, and narrowed her eyes.
“Didn’t your mother teach you manners? You don’t look over people’s shoulders to see what they’re doing.” She picked up her list and held it to her damp shirt.
Mi mamá did teach me manners, no? I am Tino Kosta, your guide to the dig at Ch’ujuña.” He held out his hand waiting for her to shake.
Her gaze traveled from his extended hand up his arm to his face. She squinted her eyes and glared at him.
“You’re not of Mesoamerican descent, so you can’t possibly be my guide. Are you in cahoots with the disgusting little man who stole my property?” She bent toward her backpack, giving him a good view down the front of her blouse.
Si, she didn’t wear a bra. The nipples peaking through her clingy shirt sat atop a palm-sized mound. Now, being a man who liked his hands filled to overflowing when it came to handling a woman—
¡Carajo!” The pointed end of the large knife that had been tucked in the doctor’s backpack waved inches from his nose. “What is this about?” A woman who ran around without undergarments shouldn’t be offended by a man viewing her body.

Secrets of a Mayan Moon is available at Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords.

My interview with J. L. Oiler

What was it like to work with Suzzana C. Ryan? 

Amazing! It was as if we clicked instantly, feeding of each other’s strengths and striding overtop and weaknesses. Suzzana is great to work with and I would not want to tackle this project with anyone else.

How did Glimpses of Midnight Happen?

I received an email from the Staff at Rebel Ink Press explaining they’d come up with an idea for a cooperative paranormal series between myself and Suzzana C. Ryan. They provide this sort of vague mini blurb and left it our capable hands from there. Everything from the characters, subgenre’s, locations, and heat levels were left up to the two of us.

Was it difficult to intertwine the stories so much yet produce stories that could stand alone?

Not really as much as you might expect. The two of us work so well together that when the characters seemed automatically fit into our given situations. We simply had to read the other persons work in progress and our minds began building on side elements and events to include into our own pieces.

Will we be seeing more from this series?

Certainly, both me and Suzzana are currently working on the next installments of the series which we are hoping to release in December!

How did you create such a massive world?

Lots of Brainstorming and caffeine

What sub genres of Paranormal Romance can readers expect in the series?
In books one and two, you can find ménage (m/f/m) and lots of m/f and a tiny bit of ménage with m/m/f/m. The plans for the next two installments include m/m and f/f along with various ménage scenes and of course m/f.

How much and what type of research did you need to do for this project?

Luckily Suzzana is from New York, so the fact our story actually takes place beneath that city she became my go to girl for the in’s and outs of the big apple, though most our discussion surrounded the sewer system to be specific. I also did a bit of reading, regarding mythology for the creation of the array of characters you find roaming South Hedonism.

Tell the readers about your main character Carina…

She is the daughter of the lord of South Hedonism, a fact she is not always thrilled about. Of course being part Vampire and part Succubus would be difficult no matter who your father was. She is a product of her environment and thrives for the next sexual conquest while searching for the ultimate satisfaction. Carina is also a spectacular fighter and enjoys laying waste to anyone she sees as being in the way of her satisfying her appetite for indulgence. When she meets up with the human brothers who have unwittingly adventured their way into deep trouble things really heat up.

Tells us more about the release:

Carina Bellefleur is the only daughter of the dark lord of South Hedonism, Cyrus Bellefleur. Belonging to a city of Indulgence and decadence has its privileges but the half vampire half succubus is having a difficult time finding someone, or better yet more than just one someone, who can help her reach that ultimate orgasm. When a pair of human males are caught just outside the city walls the subject of the dark city desire nothing more than their immediate death. Carina however sees something special in the pair of well-endowed males.

Evan and Eric are the ultimate urban adventures. Therefore, when they hear rumors of a city hidden beneath their own beloved New York they cannot help themselves, they have to try to find it. Now as prisoners among creature they would never in their wildest dreams believed existed the pair of brothers find their fate lay in the hands of the cities sexy princess.  

They discover survival depends on provide Carina with the ultimate in sexual satisfaction before her father discovers humans within the walls of his city in exchange the feisty woman might lead them back topside. There is however a catch, what if they really don’t want to go or she doesn’t want to let them?
