New Release - Slave by Angelica Dawson

Will has no interest in women. He thinks them all animals to be trained, beaten. It doesn't take him long to discover his preference for men, but time and error reveal how wrong his view toward women is. Before long, he is able to separate the way he treats women, which is still horrific, from the way he regards women, as fellow human beings.

How does a slave become an equal? What does it take for a young man to see women in a new light?

In the fourth installment of her Blue Moon House series, Angelica introduces Will, a slave boy from the early nineteenth century. You can purchase Slave on Amazon. Smashwords, All Romance Ebooks and Naughty Nights Press.

Angelica Dawson is the author of Blue Moon House, which has been in the top ten best-selling titles at Naughty Nights Press for over six months. She has also written two short stories, “The Highest Bidder” and “Leave Taking” which were each included in anthologies. She contributes flash fiction to several blogging collectives and excerpts from work in progress can also be found on her blog. She is active on Facebook and Twitter.

She has been writing for several years and having sex a lot longer than that. Angelica is a wife, mother and environmental consultant. Her love of plants and the outdoors is not diminished by the bloodsucking hoards – mosquitoes and black flies, not vampires.

Here is an excerpt from Slave:

He continued to thrust, punctuating random ones with a slap on her ass and never releasing her hair. She pulled her head, however, slowly and steadily, trying to drop it to the bed. He could feel how weak her legs were, not holding her up any longer. Her arms weren’t bracing anymore either, limp.

“Yes, yes.” It was as though she’d forgotten how to make him stop. Dropping her hair, he reached around her torso and took hold of both nipples, pinching hard while pulling as far as he could.

A feral scream tore from her throat and her legs kicked, trying to free herself.

“Stop, please, stop,” she cried at last.

Will let go and took hold of her, turning her in his arms before placing her on the bed. He ran a hand over her face, feeling how slick with sweat she was, how hot her skin had become. “Terrance? Water, please?” he asked, not wanting to leave her. “What is your name?”

She blinked slowly, her eyelids heavy. “Daedra.”

“Thank you, Daedra.”

“Thank you, Master.”

Terrance returned with a tumbler, and Will propped Daedra up while putting the glass to her lips. She sipped carefully, but Will tipped high, the water trailing down her chest. When he took the water away, he spread that stream over her breasts, trying to cool her down.

“Thank you, Master,” she said again, her voice raspy and slow. She was obviously exhausted.

“Sleep, Daedra.” He kissed her forehead and felt very protective of the woman he had just pressed so hard. Retrieving a rag and moistening it with the wash water, he put it on her head and left the room, pants in hand.

Available for a Limited Time at the special price of $0.99 !

James Alexander Whitmore III, better known as Jaws as a joke among his co-workers, doesn’t even want to be on this cruise he’s been guilted into.

A rule-breaker in his CEO father’s eyes, he’s a software engineer who designs video games. Although, he’s not your typical geek, either, with his muscular body framed by long, dark hair and home to tribal tattoos from his latest successful game.

After traveling around the world to gain certificates as a personal trainer and yoga instructor, Samantha has finally landed her perfect job working on a cruise ship. As a staff member, Sam has the run of the ship. She can fraternize with the passengers, but being caught in flagrante delicto is grounds for immediate dismissal.

While an adventurer, she’s not a rule-breaker, so this poses a problem when she meets Mr. Tall, Dark and Mysterious. While she can’t imagine fitting into the world of a man who can rent a secluded cabin in the Grand Turks for the five hours they are in port, he just may prove to be her greatest adventure yet, in the bedroom and out.

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance

Available Now at AmazonAll Romance EbooksNNP Store


“This book is sexy, sweet, funny and absolutely worth devouring! Watching Samantha struggle with her decision and Jaws flirting with destiny had me glued to the pages.” ~5 Stars, Ava Mallory
The romance that flourishes between them is swoon-worthy, and the narrative is far too good to not read all in one setting. I didn’t want to put it down! If there is one thing Kiki Howell knows how to do, it’s write a romance that is the perfect blend of erotic sensuality and passionate romance.Your breath will catch, your face will flush. You will swoon, you will sigh. In the end, you will read the final word with a smile on your face. That’s how you know it’s a great romance.” ~ 5 Stars from AP Bullard, Triskele reviews

We Go On: Charity Anthology for Veterans

I’d like to give a very special birthday shout out to my father, William David Quinn, a man who served his country in Vietnam, 1966-1967, earning both a Bronze Star and Purple Heart. It is true that many dream of meeting their hero, but I was raised by mine. As long as I breathe, I will never get over the all he sacrificed, and the hero’s welcome he never got. When you grow up the child of a veteran, you come to understand, that what they went through, you will never understand, that that is your luxury and their burden.

With all of this in my head, I created this anthology, getting to work with many wonderful authors who gave of their time and talents to benefit such a worthy cause. With so many great veteran’s charities out there, 100% of the proceeds from this anthology will go to them, a different one chosen each month, starting with the Wounded Warrior Project end of March https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org

So, this year, as a way of saying a very special Happy Birthday to my father, I’ve set the anthology titled We Go On, to release on his birthday as a way of saying, “Welcome Home” I hope you will read on to find out more about this project and how you can help veterans by not only buying the book, but through other sites as well.

What is a Veteran? A Veteran-- Whether active duty, discharged, retired, reserve or national guard is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount up to, and including his/her life.

We Go On: Charity Anthology for Veterans

The poems and stories included in this anthology, written by various authors, tell of veterans outside of war, of how their sacrifice of service changed their lives long after the war was over. Although some of the messages of the sacrifices of war are sadly timeless, they speak of unsung heroes, and I say unsung because nothing we could ever do for them would ever be enough to say thank you for all they gave. With that said, with these poems and stories, we will give what we can. 100% of the profits made will go to charities for veterans.

To all who have served and to all of those who love them, we offer our undying gratitude because it is all we truly have to give you for your sacrifices, told and untold. So, we give what we can to honor you, to say thank you, and to, in some small way, give back. Although it could never be enough, a million thanks or a million dollars, we pray we can help some of the many who have given so much, so selflessly, and then suffered even as they fought another battle, the battle to go on…
