Thank you for hosting me today VS! I always love being hosted by one of my fellow Decadent Publishing authors.
Today I brought along a special excerpt from my latest 1Night Stand book FINDING HIS FANTASY which will be out tomorrow and is up for preorder here:
All Romance | Amazon | BookStrand | Google Play | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords
FINDING HIS FANTASY is the story of Paul, a middle aged art gallery owner, and Josef, a Haitian bar owner in the Caribbean. If you are as big a fan of 1Night Stand books as I am, you may remember Paul from Wendy Burke’s story WISE MEN SAY. Wendy and I like to steal characters from each other. Josef had a cameo in my m/m story ACCIDENTALLY BEAUTIFUL.
Paul is one of those guys who says it like it is and he’s honest to a fault. Sometimes that honesty gets him into trouble, but he’s about to learn that the only way he will ever find his fantasy, than he is going to have to share something with Josef hat he’s never told a soul.
Here is a little window into Paul’s character. Enjoy!
Paul needed a cigarette.
A real one, not those damned smokeless ones.
Permanently in the process of quitting, he entered his suite and beelined it for his suitcase, grateful Castillo Resort catered to a European clientele and offered smoking rooms. His own self-righteous countrymen bitched anytime somebody lit up. It was his fucking body. If he wanted to poison it with nicotine and tar, why should anyone care?
He took out a second pack of Marlboros from the carton he’d bought at the duty free. At the rate he was sucking on these things, he’d have to get another to take home. So much for quitting this month. The moment he took that first drag, the nerves over his upcoming date lessened.
Goddamn, that’s delicious.
The morning had been successful, spent with the hotel manager, Jagger, touring a small gallery where local artists displayed their wares. But one thing this Milwaukee boy loved more than finding a new artist to promote was hot weather in February. After a refreshing dip in the glorious pool, he’d taken a little cocktail time flirting with the bartender and a honeymooning couple at the tiki bar—hence the demise of his first pack of smokes.
Now he had to get ready for his 1Night Stand.
“Fuck, Paulie,” he said aloud to his reflection. “What were you thinking, doing this?”
Cigarette between his lips, he examined his reflection. Smooshing his face with his hands, he pulled back his cheeks until his newly forming jowls disappeared. Hmm, maybe he should rethink his belief that fifty-five was the perfect age for a facelift.
Shit, when had he gotten so old?
When he sighed, a puff of smoke wafted in front of him. He took another drag, well aware of the irony of whining about wrinkles while sucking on an aging stick.
FINDING HIS FANTASY
Forty-eight-year-old art gallery owner Paul Strait loves the nightlife—wild parties, stiff cocktails, and even stiffer men! But his decadent lifestyle has grown lonely and now he’s looking for love. Some days it seems the perfect guy must be a fantasy so he enlists the help of Madame Eve. After all, a fantasy service like 1Night Stand should be able to deliver his fantasy man, right?
Josef Debrossé runs an exotic gay bar in the Caribbean known only to locals and select tourists. The many patrons coming in and out of his bar ensure he never has a shortage of lovers, but he’s grown tired of being just a vacation fling. He wants to be another man’s lover and partner, not a mere souvenir from the islands.
Lost in a dance of lust and allure, both men are thrilled with Madame Eve’s choice for them and have an instant, intense connection. Flirting over drinks quickly leads to the bedroom. But after their fiery lust has been quenched, the night goes from fantasy to reality without warning. Secrets and frightening pasts threaten to shatter the magical illusion of their perfect date. Will this budding romance survive in the face of reality?

She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. She has served multiple board positions at her local RWA chapter and with Rainbow Romance Writers of America.

In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.

Something always brings him back to her....
Ryker Cage is a rough guy, with very particular tastes when it comes to sex. Rough, hard, and dirty is the extent of his repertoire. Never soft. He doesn’t have a clue about connecting with his sensitive side in the bedroom, or that find-your-inner-femininity bullshit. He fears nothing, except—his feelings for the sweet and innocent Molly Monroe.
The bad boy who lived next door claimed Molly’s heart long ago. Crazy, or not, she loves him. Always has. No matter what he does to push her away, nor how far he runs, Ryker is the one man she’ll never stop loving.
When Ryker finally finds his way back home, will he find the courage to claim what's always been his? Or, will he be destined for heartache when someone threatens to take everything away?
Claimed by the Bad Boy Top 10 Facts:
1. Ryker Cage—a real rough and tough bad boy, who has spent too much time warring with himself over his attraction to Molly Monroe.

4. Molly—wishes she could put Ryker out of her head.
5. Ryker and Molly—have a rollercoaster of a relationship.
6. Ryker—hopes like hell he doesn’t freak Molly out with his desire.
7. Molly—wants Ryker to show her the side of him he’s tried to hide from her.
8. Ryker—claims what’s always been his.
9. Molly—finds herself in a heap of trouble.

London Saint James has lived in many places, but never felt “at home” until she met the real-life man of her dreams and settled down in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. London lives with her husband and their fat cat who thinks he owns them.
As an award-winning, bestselling, multi-published author, London is living her childhood dream. She knew all the scribbling she did, that big imagination of hers, and all those clamoring characters running around in her head would pay off someday.

Like many who have experienced rough times in their lives, this reflection is powerful for me.
I’m hugely thankful for my readers. Writing is my dream, and I’m so thrilled I have wonderful people to share my stories with. Your enthusiasm and requests for more stories are greatly appreciated.
I’m also thankful for the author community and my family at Decadent Publishing. Writing can be a lonely business, but I’m amazed at the level of camaraderie and support from my fellow authors and all the staff at Decadent.
On a personal level I’m thankful for my family and friends. My husband and son are wonderful in supporting my dreams, and my dogs cheer me on as they snuggle in my chair while I write. While my day job drives me crazy at times, especially when overtime eats into my writing time, I am thankful I have a job, and have the ability to hunt for a new one.
As I was writing Rex’s Mate, the theme of being thankful came up. Aaron, one of my heroes, goes through a harrowing experience. He and his brother are abducted. He wakes up in a strange place to discover his brother is missing, and Aaron has been medically altered against his will. That’s a lot to handle! But Aaron, who is a loner by nature, finds unexpected sources of support at Pack Pawlak, including a cocky yet off-the-charts sexy protector. Without giving anything away, Aaron definitely finds reasons to be grateful during this difficult time.
Rex’s Mate begins with Rex in a lonely place. He sees the love between Hunter and Casey, and wants that level of connection too. But can he find it? And deep down he wonders, is he worthy of it? Aaron and his situation is way more than Rex expected to take on, but he’s never one to back down from a challenge. While he hates the men who caused Aaron’s struggles, he is thankful for finding this fierce and beautiful man.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’d love to hear what you’re thankful for.

Resting his palm on her hip bone, he resisted the urge to scoop her up in his arms and take her to the bedroom. Could living in this part of the world be so easy for his kind? “What about you? Could you fall in love with an alien?”
She smiled, her body relaxing again. “I am absolutely sure I could.”
“What about a regular human being?” Slowly gathering her skirt up her legs, he waited for her answer. Would she reject him?
“Could I fall in love with someone from Earth? Sure.” She moved her hand down and began to rub his inner thigh. “If that someone is you.”
Lust oozed out of her pores, accelerating his desire. He sat up, anxious to kiss her sweet lips. So soft and tender. She wrapped her arms around his neck and leaned back, pulling him on top of her. Chal plunged his tongue into her mouth the way he wanted to experience other parts of her.
Angela held the hem of his sweater, drawing the material up until he was forced to draw back for a moment to get the dang thing off. As she trailed her palms up and down his back, Chal slipped his hands under the skirt of her dress. He yearned for more. All of her. No internal warnings with his neighbor. Every inch of his being encouraged him on, to make the ultimate connection with the woman who said she could love an alien.
Clasping her waist, he ran his thumbs along the edge of her undergarments. With a throaty moan, she thrust toward him. Encouragement?
He lifted his head and gazed into her honey-colored eyes. “Do you want this?”
She nodded and pulled him back down, claiming his mouth the way he yearned to claim her. When she elevated her hips, he slid his fingers beneath her undergarments and shimmied them down her thighs.
Jessica E. Subject is the author of science fiction romance, mostly alien romances, ranging from sweet to super hot. Sometimes she dabbles in paranormal and contemporary as well, bringing to life a wide variety of characters. In her stories, you could not only meet a sexy alien or two, but also clones and androids. You may be transported to a dystopian world where rebels are fighting to live and love, or to another planet for a romantic rendezvous.
When Jessica is not reading, writing, or doing dreaded housework, she likes to get out and walk with her giant, hairy dog her family adopted from the local animal shelter.
Jessica lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two energetic children. And she loves to hear from her readers. You can find her at jessicasubject.com and on twitter @jsubject.
