With Winter and Spring Comes Sexy Releases!

Are You Ready for Sexy Reads This 2017!


So I’ve been gone a while from this blog. Life has kicked me all over the place for the last few months, but I am getting back into the swing of things. This year has a lot of new stories coming your way, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.


One of the stories available now kicks off a new series, Vella Cove Shifters. I am so grateful to be a part of Milly Taiden’s Sassy Ever After Kindle World for Kindle Worlds, and the story Magical Sass for Three has been fun to create. Be sure to check out all seven February releases for Sassy Ever After.

Yesterday, a great set of ménage romances came out called A Valentine for Two. If you’ve been keeping up with my stories, you know I’m a big fan of having more than one sexy alpha to love. This has ménage encounters of all variations just in time for Valentine’s Day. Be sure to grab your copy for $0.99.
Another great set is just for you wedding lovers out there. If you’ve read my story Chocolate for Christmas, you’ll finally get a chance to read Tonya and Hudson’s story in A Chocolate Kind of Love. It’s only available in Wedding Dreams, a collection of 20 nuptial romances in time for spring. It’s only $0.99, so pre-order your copy in time for the release! You can get it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, KOBO, and Google Play!

It’s Christmas In June! Must Be Free Book Time!

 

The Alpha Warlock Shifter’s Gift: Alpha Warlocks of Kala West Book #4 Is Free Until 6/22!


Can a curvy werewolf and a broken warlock shifter find a love to heal each other?

 

The last thing werewolf Danika wants is to be forced into an arranged marriage, even if it is for the good of her Kala West wolf pack. When she encounters the grown version of the boy she saved years ago, she can’t deny the magical attraction that brings them back together again.

Warlock shifter Blaine is an outcast. He’s been shunned by the magical community of Kala West for being part shifter, and the local pack has no need for a shifter who can’t find his wolf. He’s ready to leave town for good, until he encounters the girl he never forgot.

Time seems irrelevant when Danika and Blaine reunite under the mystical moonlight, and the Florida humidity isn’t a match for the heat between them. Is their second chance enough to change their fates and turn their blossoming attraction into a lasting holiday gift of romance?


This 16,000-word romance story is the fourth in the Alpha Warlocks of Kala West interlinked series but can be read as a standalone novella. A shorter version of this story originally appeared in the Shifters in the Snow holiday collection and takes place after The Alpha Warlocks Own. It has strong sexual situations and explicit content. For mature and brave readers who can handle fierce sex magic, a determined BBW wolf, and a powerful Alpha Male warlock shifter only.

The Alpha Warlocks’ Desire on Amazon US
 
I wanted the series to get a revamp because of the new stories coming in the next few weeks. If you read The Alpha Warlocks’ Own, you know there are some surprises in store for the Brixton sisters. The story doesn’t end with them, that’s for sure!
 

 

 

Only $2.99 or get it FREE in Kindle Unlimited!
I created the original covers, and they will always be among my favorites. I wanted to have more time to get out more amazing Alpha Warlock of Kala West stories to you, so I found an amazing cover artist to revamp the entire series. These awesome covers were created by the amazing Emma Alisyn from Hard Candies Publishing. I think she did an amazing job. What do you think?

 

That means you’ll be getting to see some new stories starting in June. Yay! You’ll see my prequel series first and get to meet the Brixton sisters’ triad parents, Seraphine, Callen, and Cruz. This one will be coming to you Summer 2016! Then the Curvy Paranormals of Kala West will follow.

You’ll be able to know a Kala West story when you see the new symbol for the series. Check it out below. It shows a circle around a star, which symbolizes the witches and warlocks, while the quadrants showcase the shifters to come. I had to have something to represent Kala West, Florida, so the wave and palm tree captures this well. Isn’t it rocking?


Stay tuned for some amazingly steaming stories for you to devour soon.

Happy Sensual Spring Reading!

The Brixton Finish Line!

Getting to the Brixton Sister Finish Line!

 
Okay, so I have to apologize for the craziness of life. I’ve been MIA from this lovely blog for months. Life has thrown me a few curveballs. My EDJ (Evil Day Job) and everyday life are in limbo, and it’s been hard to write.

 

I’ve realized though that inspiration doesn’t always come to you. Sometimes you have look for trails, hunt it down, and shoot that sucker right in the eyes. This is coming right after seeing Jurassic World, so excuse my predator lingo.

 

I’ve been delayed in getting Carmen’s story out because life placed a mental block there. However, I had to remember that Charice and Claire’s stories didn’t come easy to me either. Sometimes you have to just tune the world out and get your ass in the chair.

 

Now, I have a reason to do just that. I will be doing a book tour with The Alpha Warlocks’ Desire in the beginning of August with Diverse Book Tours. I want Carmen’s story to be out before then so readers can get the full Alpha Warlocks of Kala West experience, and for those of you who’ve been with it since the beginning, to get that promised third story.

 

So this week, my ass will be tuning shit out. The crazy stuff that depresses you and makes you sad as hell will not affect me. I have some writing to do. I have some readers to please. I have a world that needs continuing. The Alpha Warlocks Own must happen, and it must happen now.

 

If you see me around in social media land, say hi. Then promptly command my crazy behind to get back to writing. As I’ve mentioned before, Carmen’s story isn’t the last story in the world of Kala West. There’s a lot of work to be done.

 

Until then, above is a picture of the Florida Keys, similar to how I see Kala West beaches, to give you a little visual stimulation:

 
In other news, I’m happy to say that my first in the series, The Alpha Warlocks’ Claim, is part of an amazing bundle of ménage romance stories called Double Your Pleasure. If you’re in the UK, you can get it HERE. Even if you’ve read Charice’s story in this first installment, some amazing authors are part of this bundle. Check them out! For less than a dollar, you can’t go wrong.

 

Happy Sensual Reading,

Final Brixton Sister Cover!

 My Third and Last Alpha Warlocks Cover…Or is It?!

Hello Skye Readers!

So if you all have been keeping up with the Brixton sisters, you know that Carmen is the last sister…or is she?

I have said before that this series is just the start. I will be working on (and hopefully releasing by May/June) my first Curvy Paranormals of Kala West book. This series will be longer, hotter, and full of supernaturals. Menage sexiness all around. 

Also, witches and warlocks aren’t the only creatures coming out to play. Vampires, werewolves, and ghosts will be saying hello, among other things.

I also plan on releasing a prequel…one that centers around the sisters’ mother, Seraphine, and her warlocks, Callen and Cruz. So when this third story comes out, don’t worry. It’s far from the end.

Now, for the moment of reveal…..

My third cover for the Alpha Warlocks of Kala West series, The Alpha Warlocks’ Own:





In this third installment, you’ll meet Carmen, the BBW fire witch, and her Alpha Warlocks, the Durant twins, Ryan and Royce. Ryan is an air warlock, and Royce is a fire warlock. You can imagine the fire storm these two create.

If you remember the first book, you’ve already met Ryan. Now, all the characters come back to save the youngest Brixton sister, including her smexy and yummy warlocks.

Look for this to come out late April or early May. If you haven’t read Charice or Claire’s story, they are both available on Amazon and are Free in Kindle Unlimited. 

Check Charice’s out HERE or if in the UK, HERE

Find Claire’s story HERE or for UK readers, HERE. Claire’s story is $.99 for a limited time, so jump on it!

Check out the COMING SOON tab for more details on Carmen’s journey and the story synopsis.

Chapter Endings and Wandering Sexual Minds

 

Quick and Dirty Skye Tips #2: Ending Chapters on a High (Orgasmic) Note!

Hello Skye Readers!

Recently, I went back and reformatted some of my stories on Amazon. I got caught up in some of them, and I realized that in order for readers to enjoy my stories, I have to enjoy them as a reader too. If I don’t like the storytelling, why should I make another person suffer through it?

Reading some of my other favorite erotic romance authors and getting into my own long writing marathons for second parts of my two erotic romance series, Alpha Warlocks of Kala West and The Erotic Circus, I’ve noticed a few things that can make both readers and writers satisfied with the end of a story. These are my Quick and Dirty Skye Tips #2:

1. The Build-up Must Be Strong and Authentic to Set the Mood

This may be a “Duh” moment, but I don’t just mean candles and music.You need to set the characters up for a strong connection long before they get down and dirty. I love reading quick and sexy reads just as much as the next person, but I’ve noticed with my dirty, I also need sexy foreplay first, both emotional and physical. I am a woman, after all ;-). 

If you throw characters into bed, I want to know why they are there, even if it is only for meaningless sex. This way when the sheets are ruffled and the hot action is done, I can leave satisfied with events too.
   

2. Sexual Tension Needs to Be Real, Scorching, and Include Everyone Involved


A lot of my writing has more than two people. Usually, it’s two men and a woman, which is a favorite storyline of mine, especially since there are few interracial BWWM (Black woman, white man) menage stories. However, it’s easy to get lost in writing a story and forget the third player. 

I make it a goal to have everyone do or say something every couple of lines. Remember that childhood lesson about giving everyone else a turn? It definitely applies here. Otherwise, the reader will be a few pages into the sex scene asking, “What happened to the other guy (or girl)? Did they fall asleep or something?” That is a bad and boring thought to give any dedicated reader. 

This is kind of an expansion on the first set of Quick and Dirty Skye Tips, but I want to take it a step further. The reactions of all parties involved also need to be described. If someone is being licked somewhere, how does the receiver respond? And when a third person gets involved, do they react the same way or differently? This helps to make the scene steamy but technically accurate and real for the scene they are all actively participating in.
   

3. Emotions Mingled with the Five Senses are Key


I’m sure you remember the emphasis on the five senses in grade school: taste, touch, sight, smell, and sound. Well, these never change, especially in romance writing. Whenever you create a setting, visualize yourself there and share it with readers. 

How does his lips taste in a kiss? What does her skin feel like as his fingers glide across it? How does the rich billionaire look in his designer threads? What smell invigorates the alpha shifter so he’s ready to pounce and claim his sexual prey? What does her moan sound like to urge her lover on?

Never assume your reader knows these things. I tend to get caught up in my own fictional worlds, so I tend to accidentally do this as well. It’s so clear and vivid to me that obviously my readers can experience it too, right? Nope. That’s what description is for, to use as an invitation to your world. Go ahead. Invite some people in.

So, now it’s your turn. What was the best erotic romantic ending that left you hot, bothered, and still satisfied but craving more?

Happy Sensual Reading (And Writing),

Auriella
