Sneak Peek Snog - Rajasthani Moon

To celebrate my new contract - and whet your appetite - I've got a snog excerpt today from Rajasthani Moon. Furthermore, I'm so happy about the book I've decided to give away a $10 All Romance Ebooks gift voucher to one lucky person who comments on this post. (Please be sure to include your email as part of the comment text.)

Rajasthani Moon is a steampunk/BDSM/Bollywood/menage/Rubenesque/shapeshifter erotic romance. Really! In your comment, tell me which of these genres is your favorite.

Morning sun filtered through the latticed windows, the intermittent light adding new patterns to the intricately-woven carpet. Cecily stirred in the nest of cushions Amir had scattered upon the floor at the foot of his bed. She stretched her bondage-stiffened muscles, wincing as embroidered satin abraded her punished backside. The Rajah’s spanking appeared to have irritated the welts from the flogging administered by his brother. What a pair of deviants! 
A short chain tethered her ankle to the massive mahogany bedstead. Otherwise she appeared to be free – not counting, of course, her deadly collar. Rising to her knees, she peered at Amir, who lay careless and relaxed in sleep upon the fine linen sheets. With his eyes closed, luxurious lashes brushing his smooth cheeks and full lips slightly parted, he looked boyish, fresh and innocent. How appearances could deceive!

Was he merely feigning sleep? Cecily scrutinized his naked form, studiously ignoring the tell-tale swell below his waist. She could not detect the slightest evidence of tension. His gloriously-muscled chest rose and fell in a slow, regular rhythm. She held her palm above his luscious mouth and felt the warmth of his breath upon her skin. A faint aroma of almonds hung around him. She recalled the slippery oil with which he’d greased her rear channel and shuddered, half disgusted, half aroused.

For the moment, the Rajah appeared to be in her power. Cecily knew many techniques for quickly and efficiently terminating a man’s life, without the need for excessive force or blood. It would be quite simple to eliminate this enemy of the Empire.

The train of thought came automatically, a consequence of her training. She dismissed it as impractical. She would still be a prisoner, and a proven assassin rather than merely a seeker of intelligence. Besides, what purpose would such a murder serve? Amir was far more valuable to her alive, as a source of information.

Underneath all her rationalisation, Cecily was keenly and shamefully aware of the fact that she could never kill this man – no matter how vicious or dangerous he might be. He had a hold on her, far stronger and more difficult to escape than his silvery chains. Her quim was still tender and raw from the effects of his infernal instruments – his sparks, his clamps and his cock – but she felt herself moisten as she gazed on his slumbering beauty. In his presence, what she truly wanted was to give in, to have him use her like the helpless captive she was.

Helpless? She shook her head as if to scatter her offending thoughts. What was wrong with her? Had the Rajasthani ruler cast some sort of spell over her? She should be focusing on escape. She might not have ferreted out all the Rajah’s secrets, but already she knew much that was of value. Furthermore, if she managed to get out of the palace, she could disguise herself and engage in some additional sleuthing...

“Good morning, pet.” Amir’s piercing eyes fluttered open and pinned her gaze, while his lips curved into a self-satisfied smile. Any semblance of innocence fled. “Did you sleep well?”

“I’m not your pet. Furthermore, I scarcely had a comfortable moment all night, due to the after-effects of your tortures.”

“Tortures? Please! Based on your reactions to my little games, I don’t think ‘torture’ is exactly the appropriate term, my delectable spy.”

He reached up, grabbed her shoulders and pulled her down on top of him.

“Ow -!” Cecily began as the chain bit into her skin. His voluptuous lips sealed off any further commentary. She wanted to struggle but his arms were steel bands confining her. Her breasts mashed against his solid chest, the nipples plump and swollen as grapes, while the sweet rigidity of his cock poked into her from under the sheet.

It felt far too pleasant – outrageously so. Amir pried her mouth open and probed deep with his brazen tongue. She could not help imagining that tongue rooting in her cunny. Desire shimmered through her as she opened to him, savouring his flavour of cinnamon and fennel.

Clearly he sensed her surrender. He released his hold on her torso so that he could trace her bountiful curves, down over her hips to her buttocks. Seizing two handfuls of her opulent flesh, he ground his cock against her mound. His fingernails scored her arse and woke twinges of remembered pain that only fanned her need. Awkward due to the chains and his still-tight hold upon her, Cecily tried to spread her thighs, so that his erection would provide more direct stimulation. The sheet that separated their flesh was soaked by their pooled secretions.

She wanted to roll away, so that they could remove that barrier. Amir held her fast, determined, perhaps, to frustrate her, while he continued to ravage her mouth with astonishing ferocity. Even Cecily’s well-honed muscles were no match for his strength. She gave up, closed her eyes and allowed him do whatever he pleased. For now, at least, he was in control – and if she was honest with herself, she didn’t mind.

Congrats on your contract for Rajasthani Moon! The excerpt was tantalizing and beautifully written.

You are a true master of the genre(s, my friend!

Linda King said...

Ooh, I'm going to have to read this! I'm partial to a bit of ménage but it all sounds enticing! linda dot king 68 at yahoo dot com. I write as Bel Anderson. Great excerpt!

Colleen C. said...

That was a nice teaser Lisabet... you have my attention! Sounds like another great read from you!
My fav genre tends to go with whatever mood I am in... so out of the choices, shapeshifter would be the one today! Congrats on the book!

Lisabet, such an excellent wordsmith you are, that you make erotic scenes read like poetry instead of in your face sex. I love your style. But I have a confession to make, what is Bollywood:)? I guess I'm partial to shape shifters all said.


Kaylyn D said...

Great excerpt. My favorite genres are ménage and BDSM. I also have really gotten into Steampunk recently. It kind of reminds me of Firefly. With all the genres this book is, it will have a little something for everyone. I can't wait until this book comes out! Congrats on your contract.

Sounds so sensual and intriguing--congratulations!

Oh my. Menage is my very favorite but I also love to read erotic, BDSM, Rubenesque, shapeshifter and steampunk. I have never read Bollywood and I have never read them all together in one book. It sounds very interesting.

Thank you for the wonderful contest.

I don't really have a favorite in those genres. I'm new to a couple of them so I can't give my opinion on it yet. I recently read a shapeshifter erotic romance and I loved it and I just got a new one yesterday that I haven't started yet. This may be one of my new favorite genres though. Congrats on your contract!!

Unknown said...

I just started reading this genre. I love this book!!! I cant wait to read it!!!

Margaret Tanner said...

Hi Lisabet,
That was a great excerpt. I don't normally read this genre, but you certainly hooked and tantalized me.

hope I'm not too late to sign up!!!! I love all the genres/ menage-no one gets let out/ steampunk- adventure and cool styles, Rubeneseque- my kedonkedonk is so cool!/shape shifter- hello, turning into an animal (AWESOME!)/ and BDSM- for those willing to play in the bedroom (vanilla is good, but variety is better!)

Normandie Alleman said...

This sounds like such a fun book, I can't wait to read it. My favorite genre of those mentioned is BDSM. I can't seem to write a book without some bondage. Lol. normandiealleman (at) yahoo (dot) com

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, Sara - Bollywood is a genre that may be peculiar to Total-E-Bound. It's romance set in India or with Indian characters, with some of the same feel as Bollywood movies: exotic sets, lavish costumes, ceremony, song and dance, etc.

Rajasthani Moon features a new moon ceremony (which I totally invented!) and a Rajasthani royal wedding (which I actually researched).

Lisabet Sarai said...

Thanks, Kathleen!

I don't think I've "met" you before. Welcome to Beyond Romance.

Lisabet Sarai said...

You're so sweet, Gail. Thank you!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, Suze,

Steampunk seems to be very hot these days. Of course, I'm not sure people will like it mixed up with all this other stuff.

Thanks for coming by!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Greetings, Linda/Bel!

Thanks very much for your thumbs up. Positive words from another author are precious.

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, Colleen,

I feel the same way. That's why my backlist is so mixed up!

This is my first werewolf. I hope readers like him.

Lisabet Sarai said...

Greetings, Kaylyn!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We'll see whether the market loves or hates this one!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, Trix,

Actually, this book is pretty intense, sexually. I hope I didn't overdo it!

Lisabet Sarai said...

You're a riot, Hotcha!

Thanks for dropping by!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Greetings, Gayle,

I don't think anyone has ever written them all together in one book LOL! But there's a first time for everything!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hello, Shannon,

Shapeshifters have a very devoted following. I've never tried a werewolf before, and this one's not "standard" anyway - he was bitten, he was cursed.

Thanks for commenting.

Lisabet Sarai said...

Greetings, Laura,

Well, you'll get your chance starting in May! I'm sure I'll be featuring more excerpts before then, though.

Thanks for dropping by!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hello, Margaret,

I might be embarrassed to have a real historical author like you read this book. I really played fast and loose with history here!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, Michelle,

You're not too late! I'll be drawing a winner in the next few minutes.

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hello, Normandie,

I have the same problem (with bondage I mean) LOL.

Thanks for dropping by!

Lisabet Sarai said...

Hi, everyone! Just came from, where the cosmic dice chose my winner - Shannon!

Thanks so much for reading and participating. Stay tuned for more fun giveaways.

Lisabet Sarai said...

I mean, he WASN'T bitten, he was cursed... darned fingers!

Unknown said...

Thank you so much!! There is nothing better than being able to buy new books!!! :)
