Sneak Peek: Lipstick by Erzabet Bishop

[I couldn't decide which of Erzabet's excerpts I liked better. So I decided to include them both! Enjoy! ~ Lisabet]

Lipstick: Black Dress Chronicles, Book 1

The perfect shade of lipstick can lead to the perfect opportunity for sin…

Hungry and overworked, she arrives at a masked party at an art museum in time to meet debonair artist Maxwell Douglas. One look from his luminous eyes and Claire knows this will be a night to remember.

Nice Excerpt

What do you think? Does this lipstick make me look fat?” I eyed the mirror and mushed my lips into a moue.

Oh my God, Claire.” Rachel rolled her eyes and snorted. “Fat? Really?” She smoothed on a shade of cranberry red that looked dazzling with her preternaturally enhanced olive skin. The girl made being a vampire look good.

I gave her a thumb’s up.

Yes. Fat. Come on, guys. I need something different. Nothing too…edgy.”

Edgy, huh?” Carmen snickered, her kitty shifter cattiness coming into play. The Latin beauty grinned. “You should be worried about it making you look dead.”

Carmen sauntered over to the makeup counter where we were trying on new shades of lipstick and selected a tube, twisting it open. She grimaced and shoved it back. “Some of these…ugh. You might as well be trying out for the circus. Why don’t you try something a little more drastic? Like this one?” She lifted up a black tube and opened it to reveal a shade of purplish brown that I loved.

Sin” was one of the hottest colors around. I actually had it in my makeup bag at home, but tonight wasn’t about scaring up a bondage partner. It was more about having a normal night out with the girls.

I already have that one. Too leather club. I want human. Natural.”

Carmen snorted and twirled a finger in her hair. “Honey, I love you, but one thing you are not is human.”

Bitch.” I turned my head from side to side. Nope. The earthy shade was appealing and didn't make me appear like a candidate for the coroner’s office.


Maybe, but you know I’m right. Can’t have you going to the party looking like a zombie now, can we?”

Ha ha.” The comment stung, but Carmen did have a point. With my complexion, if I got something too red, I’d look like I’d just eaten someone’s face off. Something too light? Postmortem ice queen with no color at all. Finding the right lipstick was an art and apparently a forensic science.

All right, fang girl. Are you ready yet? Because I am.” Carmen poked Rachel in the back with her long red fingernail and smirked. “The party is going to be over and all the hot guys taken before you get your vampire ass out of that chair.”

Naughty Excerpt

What would you like to see first?” Maxwell's eyes resumed their fiery trail down my body.

How about that spanking bench?” I smiled, letting him lead the way.

He led me to it and I leaned forward onto the padded seat, deliberately giving him a stellar view of my backside. Rachel was right about the dress. It was perfect.

Is this right?” I feigned ignorance, waggling my ass in the air.

He moved behind me and as I arched my back in a provocative pose. He sucked in his breath. “Yes. I'd say that's just about perfect.” He pressed his erection against my ass, grinding it against me.

I moaned deep in my throat, sure that this had to be some kind of dream. Moisture pooled in my slit and hunger clawing at my insides. A low keening growl escaped my lips and I froze.

Bad zombie.

He reached around and kissed me, his breath falling short as he took in the slight glow of my eyes.

Exactly.” He opened my mouth, sliding his tongue against mine, urging me to respond.

I accepted the challenge, savoring his mouth. His scent was earthy and his essence made me want to devour him.

He broke the kiss and leaned back, his gaze meeting mine.

God, my palm itches to spank you,” he breathed, reaching for an errant curl that had fallen across my face. “You are intoxicating.”

I took his hand and placed it on my breast, eager and more than ready. I turned in his arms and pushed my ass alongside the erection straining against his trousers. I imagined it inside me, pressing in even closer.

I want you,” I breathed.

Well then, there is just one little thing we need to remedy.” Maxwell's voice was low as he ran his hand in a light trail down my spine.

Really? What's that?” I shivered as his hand traced lines down my body.

The dress. It has to go.”

Ummm.” I lifted my arm and his hand found the zipper. As he slowly moved it down, the dress loosened and he pulled it over my head. Clad in the thong, lacy-topped black thigh-highs, and shiny black stilettos, the chill of the room had fine goosebumps erupting all over my skin. My nipples pebbled with the delicious blend of cold and desire and maybe just a little fear. This man could do anything to me and who was to say the woman in his pictures upstairs was even alive?

The danger sped up my heart and made my juices flow.

Sneak Peek and Giveaway: Stargazing by Bernadette Marie


Bethany Waterbury left Hollywood and the shadow of her mother's death to give herself a fresh start. Her main intentionto connect with the family shed never really had the chance to know.

Author Kent Black is enjoying his chart topping success and living freely wherever his travels take him. But when he meets the illustrious Bethany Waterbury his wanderlust subsides and the thought of a steady future begins to take over.

Kent believes in happily ever after, but the burden of Bethanys past might be too much for him to embraceunless true love is more powerful than a Hollywood tragedy.


Bethany gripped the front of Kents shirt as he moved in to kiss her. His eyes had closed and his warm hands pressed against her face.

The world around her spun, much as it did when she took those pills with her mothers name on them.

She closed her eyes and let her body press against him.

His lips were pliant against hers. Warm and soft. Hungry yet gentle.

He didnt pull back with just a press of the lips. He deepened the kiss.

Kents hands slid from her face, down her arms, and to her hips where he pulled her even closer. Lifting her arms around his neck, she opened her mouth to him and he took.

His tongue swept across hers and the moan that escaped between them could have belonged to either of them, but she was sure it was hers. Kents hands slid to the small of her back and pressed her even closer than shed thought was possible.

Was this rhythm? She suddenly began to hope so, because with all the men shed been intimate with, this topped the list. This one kiss was wildly passionate and gentle all at the same time.

Shed nearly forgotten they were standing on the sidewalk as people drove by.

Kent eased back, but his eyes didnt open. He looked as though he were holding on to the moment, just as she was.I seriously didnt expect that,he said opening his eyes and gazing into hers.

It was nice.

It was more than that.
