The purpose here is to spotlight a few lines or a few paragraphs from a new release or backlisted title. This way my readers get to sample some delicious snippets and I'll do my best to tease, titillate and tantalize you into the weekend.
So the tease: Since it's summer and HOT, I thought I'd tease you today with SECOND CHANCE SUCCUBUS, book 1 in the Capitol of Second Chances series. This is a paranormal murder mystery menage with BDSM elements, and PI Nik Wolffe and his twin Detective Chayse Wolffe must return to Eve's Paradise to serve the warrant to search for the crime scene. But they run into some interesting company first.
Luck was on their side and Chayse called Nik to come with him to Eve’s Paradise to serve the warrant to Lady Aislynn. Nik wondered why Chayse hadn’t called his partner Jamison to go with him, but didn’t feel like arguing. Probably something to do with this becoming an Elder Races problem. Goddess knew humans often mucked up what could be an easy solution within the Elder Race community. And Nik’s priorities centered on keeping the Underground safe. Lady Aislynn, too. The last surprised him, but he chalked it up to protecting the club and her as the proprietor.
They arrived at the same time and parked on one of the side streets. The parking lot sat full of cars and limos. Good to see Aislynn’s not hurting for customers tonight. They wound their way through the vehicles and passed both men and women entering the strip club. The sleek oak doors held back the erotic music inside, but the sound flooded over them as they stepped inside and waved to the bartender behind the bar.
Nik motioned to him to call for Felicia and settled in at the edge of the bar to wait. Patrons and waitresses jostled for position along the polished counter and Chayse growled at someone who nudged him too much. The man backed off with a startled look and Nik elbowed his brother.
“I hate this place.”
“I know. It won’t be long.”
Eventually one of the strip shows started and the bar section emptied enough for them to stand comfortably. The bartender motioned for them to follow him into a side room meant for lap dances, but none of the patrons had been allowed in yet. Chayse took the lead and Nik followed, but he damn near ran into Chayse’s back as his brother stopped like he’d hit a wall.
What the fuck.
Nik peered around Chayse’s shoulder and swallowed a chuckle. The room in front of them sparkled with soft candle light from elaborate sconces. An oriental rug softened the wood floor and white lilies perfumed the air from a marble topped table set beside an ornate fireplace.
But that wasn’t what dominated the room.
The woman stood about thirty feet away with her hands on hips, her sensual lips curling into an inviting smile. A lacy teddy covered her voluptuous curves, anchored to her thighs with matching lace stockings. She lifted one hand and beckoned to Chayse with a manicured nail as she balanced precariously on black velvet platform heels.
Damn. Whatcha gonna do, Chayse?
His younger brother stiffened and lifted his chin, a subsonic growl rumbling from him.
“Good evening, gentlemen.” Her voice called up images of silken sheets and velvet kisses. “Are you here for a ménage?”
