EXCERPT

With slow steps, she walked toward him, keeping her voice low and packed with the need she had for him. “I dreamt about you last night. That your touch scorched my body, your tongue on my nipples. I’m dripping wet right now just thinking about it.”
He swivelled with a growl. Flinching, she took a step back at the intense expression on his face. The raw, almost feral heat in his gaze, the slight tip to one corner of his lips, baring white teeth. She trembled as she made the realisation; she was no longer the predator but now the prey.
Just like that he’d switched on her. She’d gotten what she’d wanted.
Her heart pounded against her chest and dampness soaked her knickers. How could his obvious anger turn her on so much?
“You want a bit of rough? You want me to fuck you, is that it?”
Shocked by his language, her words choked in her throat. No one had ever spoken to her in that manner. She clamped her thighs together, wanting to relief the building pressure.
“No, you don’t,” he gritted out as he leaned over and tapped her thigh with his knuckles. “Keep your legs apart.”
She complied without understanding why he’d made the demand, only knowing she’d do whatever he asked, if it’d give her what she craved. Him fucking her hard and fast.
She’d taunted him for that reason. If it would drive away the ache in her heart for a little while, then she’d take it no matter how rough it was.
“Answer my question,” he said, the calmness in his deep voice belying the passion in his dark eyes.
“Yes,” her voice was a soft husky whisper, her body trembling with her own increasing desire.
“Say it, Tari,” he commanded.
“I want you to fuck me,” she replied and relished the freedom the words gave her.

Love Romances Café Best Book of 2011

Kiru smolders with the sensitivity of the loved in describing this man… An exceptional book, well worth the time, money and frustration…..Sigh! ~ Imagervet (Amazon reviewer)

His Princess

I loved the hero, who in a land and time of male dominance, chose to be a man without reproach – a man worth losing one’s heart to. ~ Empi Baryeh, author

This book was fantastic. Throughout it I kept wondering how the hero and heroine would end up together. When the major revelation came I said, “Hot holy crap” out loud because I didn’t see it coming. ~ Nana Prah, author

 

Excerpt from His Treasure

Obinna looked up at her, his eyes fringed by long, dark lashes, a black, expressionless pool she could drown in, always unnerved her. As she couldn’t read his mood, gauging how to tell him what she wanted to say was difficult.

“Yes, say what’s on your mind Adaku,” he said in his usual deep voice, as he licked his long fingers.

Something stirred low within her belly. Her eyes hungrily followed his action, and she got distracted. For a brief moment she wished it was her fingers he was licking.

“That could be arranged.”

Adaku looked up sharply and Obinna’s brow was lifted with amusement. She realized she must have spoken her thought out loud. Embarrassment and heat washed over her as he took hold of her hand in his large one.

Somewhere within her mind something shifted. An awareness of Obinna at a primal level registered in her rapidly hazing brain.

The air suddenly felt warmer and her skin prickled. He took her fingers into his warm mouth in turn, twirling his moist tongue around each. Sensation flooded her body, and she forgot everything else she wanted to say. All she could feel was the stroke of his tongue on her fingers as he sucked and lapped each one.

His touch scorched her straight to her soul.

She gasped and his gaze came up, locking on to her and pinning her to the spot. His eyes were filled with a desire she couldn’t explain. His tongue moved down her skin, searing a path to the spot at the center of her palm before licking it. Then he released her hand, and she realized she was trembling.

 

Excerpt from His Strength

“Why did you not come to see me when you want me so?” He cocked his eyebrow cynically.

Her mouth formed an O. “I-I don’t want you,” she replied in a petulant fashion, shaking her head vigorously. But her eyes told him another story. They were a warm brown and stared at his lips as if expecting him to kiss her.

Maybe I should oblige her.

He chuckled. “Liar,” he whispered before he lowered his lips to her. But he didn’t claim her lips immediately. Instead he feathered her face and neck with kisses, alternating between nipping and licking her sweet-salty skin. Her breathing increased rapidly. When he looked up, he noticed that her eyes were closed. He licked the pulse at her neck before he trailed his lips back up and hovered above her lips. She opened her eyes and moaned softly.

“Say it, Nneka. You want me to kiss you.”

“Never!” Her voice, as well as her body, trembled as she spoke.

“Why do you have a tough time admitting what you want? Your eyes and body betray you easily.” He laughed as he pushed his thigh between her legs, parting them. He felt the heat and dampness of her hooded pearl against his bare skin.

 

Excerpt from His Princess

“Rise, Ezinne,” he said.

The intense timbre of his words resonated, doing odd things to her insides. She’d heard him speak before. Still, being alone with him seemed to heighten the effect of his voice on her body.

She straightened but kept her eyes lowered. She needed to gain back control of her body. If she kept her eyes lowered, away from him, she could keep her body in check.

“Look at me,” he said in a snappy and low… dangerously low tone.

Was he annoyed?

Slowly she lifted her chin, her stare connecting with his once more. His lips were pursed, confirming her suspicions of his irritation.

Anxiety and excitement caused her heart to thump against her chest. Instinct told her to look away. This was the prince. He was capable of crushing her with a snap of his fingers. She should heed the warning.

Instead, she refused to look away and held his gaze. Infuriation crept up her spine at a snail’s pace. She would not be intimidated.

“When you are in my presence, you will look at me directly,” he continued.

“As you wish, my prince.” She nodded and curtsied briefly still maintaining his gaze.

“And when we are in private like right now, you will use my given name, Emeka.”

Doing that would mean accepting this whole arrangement as his con—companion. She couldn’t do that. She wouldn’t do that.

“No, my prince. Regardless of where we are, you are still the Crown Prince of Umunri, and I’m just a servant in your palace. I can’t address you by your given name. It is improper.”

“That may be so. But for the next four weeks, you are here to grant my every desire as my concubine.”

If

He
jumped into the pool. When he came up for air, she was gone from the window. He
swam a few laps before the skin on his nape prickled and he lifted his head.
Tari
stood at the edge of the pool, wearing what he could only describe as a very
skimpy emerald bikini set, her hourglass curves barely tamed by the scraps of
fabric, her flawless caramel skin tempting him to touch and taste her.
Damn!
How
was he supposed to keep his hands off her if she walked around his house with
next to nothing on?

#bookreview – Scars – by @kirutaye @lovebitessilk

Scars (Passion Shields, #1)Scars by Kiru Taye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scars is the first book in the Passion Shields series. It is an emotional and erotic quick read.
Kiru Taye drops the reader straight into the action and the turmoil of the main characters and turns up the heat immediately. She artfully provides just enough information about Selina and Benjamin to help you to bond with them, whilst leaving you wanting to read the next book in the series to find out more. What is this marriage of convenience all about and why does Selina need protecting from herself? How far will her new husband push her to break down her emotional barriers?
The novella is about secrets of the past, emotional and physical scars, and how two people come together to try to move forwards. I really enjoyed the story and would certainly recommend it.

#bookrelease – Black Soul – by @kirutaye @lovebitessilk

***OUT NOW***
Title: Black Soul 

Author: +Kiru Taye, Author 

Series: Black Warriors, Prequel







Blurb:
He will damn his soul to set hers free.

When workaholic high-flying career lawyer Tara Woji takes a well
deserved break and meets up with old friends she doesn’t realise the
danger lurking in the shadows for her.
M’na is a chi, a gatekeeper
whose duty is to protect the humans. He’s lived more than a millennium
waiting for Tara and is unable to do more than just watch her.
As
the shadows deepen and darkness comes to claim her, he will do whatever
it takes to protect her including doing the one thing he shouldn’t,
releasing her powers.

In a flash
of motion, he growled and stood before her, pulling her close till her body lay
flush against his hard contour. On contact, the temperature of the air around
them rose. His lips descended on hers for the second time that night.
This time,
the sensations were not a blur. She felt him in every pore of her body, soaking
in his aura, her body and mind overwhelmed by exciting sensations. The
familiarity and recognition returned, along with the desire to have him inside
her, filling her up. Memories of the two of them together flooded her mind.
Connected, she
sensed more than his memories. His emotions wrapped around her mind like a
swirling thread, connecting light, desire, and elation. Yet, in the depth of
his mind, darkness, rage, and remorse lurked.
Her arousal
increased. She clung to his muscular arms, her hardened nipples rubbing against
his chest. Despite the clothes between them, it felt as if skin stroked skin.
Her core pulsed. His hand cupped her behind, pulling her in to feel his
rigidity between her thighs.
Feverish sensation
coursed through her body, swamping every pore. She writhed in his arms, her
body undulating uncontrollably. He broke the kiss, focused attention on her
neck and sucked her skin.
“Oh!”
Colors exploded around her, the orgasm ripped out of her body violently,
blowing her mind.
He pulled
away, leaving her panting as the energy arc surrounding them subsided.
“You…you’ve
got to stop doing that,” she said as soon as she could catch her breath,
wondering how she could respond so instantly and explosively to this man she
didn’t know.

“It’s
the only way I can get you to see the truth about us. What we’ve always been.
What we can become again.”
