Guest Author: Paloma Beck with Giveaway

Today we welcome erotic romance author Paloma Beck who shares with us her latest release HOLD MY HAND on her Release Tour. She is also giving away an ecopy of the book to one lucky person who answers her question near the end of the post. Enjoy.

Aubrey has been hurt in the past, discouraged and degraded by a heartless father. Still, William sees something in her that won't allow him to walk away. Instantly drawn to her but intuitive enough to take it slowly, he courts her. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until he ensnares Aubrey with his commanding nature. He’s everything she ever needed but never had the courage to want for. Despite the fight she puts up in accepting William's lifestyle, the bonds he places on Aubrey give her a freedom she desperately needs. Together, they heal old wounds and find their perfect love.

      “Breathe, sweet Aubrey, just breathe. Here’s my promise to you. I’ll do nothing to belittle you, degrade you. I don’t believe in humiliation – no leashes, no harnesses. I enjoy the lighter edge. And,” he paused as if considering his next words carefully, “mostly I enjoy the control, the dominance while you enjoy the submission. In some circles, I would be considered simply the head of the household taking his female in hand. Perhaps this description feels better to you than the Dominance and submission.”
      “This sounds very domestic,” I answered as I puzzled out the new definitions he’d thrown out now which seemed so different from what I’d found on-line.
     “You like it though, do you not? You believe you will thrive in this relationship.”
     “I d – don’t know.” I shivered as William’s hand came under my arms, one hand placed firmly to my breastbone, the other across my abdomen. He must’ve been able to feel the thundering of my heart.
     “I believe you do. You yearn to please. Do you not?” William’s hand was warm against my skin as his fingers found their way below my collar. The thumping of my heart was audible.
     “Yes sir.”
     “You yearn to be guided. Do you not?” William’s other hand found its way under the hem of my shirt, lightly applying pressure to my tummy.
     “Yes sir.”
     “You yearn for praise. Do you not?” William’s fingers brushed against the waistband of my jeans. My eyes fluttered closed. I could no longer keep them open under the assault of touches.
     “Yes sir.”
     “You need submission, sweet Aubrey, as if it were the air you breathe.” His breath warm against my neck, I was surrounded by William and could feel him everywhere. It should’ve been overwhelming. I should’ve been running but I melted instead. I melted into the hold he had on me. It was the safest I’d felt in all my life.
     “I’m going to give this to you. I’m going to give you this and so, so much more.” His words spoken like a creed, a sacred promise from his lips to my ears and I believed him.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, reading the excerpt and taking the time to comment.

  2. If he's a vampire, I'd say bite me-If he's a witch, I'd say put your spell on me, and if he's a human I'd say quit the procrastinating and take me!
    Ah, sexual tension makes us want more:)
    Is your story contemporary or set in another time/world?
    Good luck with your tour!

    1. It's Contemporary... it's been labeled "BDSM-lite". Sometimes I think the sexual tension in a book is the best part. ;) For the reader... maybe not so much for the character!

      Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Congrats to bn100 for winning the ebook copy of Hold My Hand. Look for an email soon . :) Enjoy!
