Crossroads Cover Reveal

Crossroads a collection by Dylan Cross
Crossroads
Every so often, a book comes along that jostles its readers romantically and makes us all want to fall in love. Crossroads is not that book. This is the second collection of short, dark stories by Dylan Cross. If you're squeamish or easily offended, these tales are not for you. From a secretary in a hopeless situation, to a sexy but psychotic ex seeking closure, to a blackmailed housewife... prepare yourself for a thrill ride. Just be forewarned--this is not your mother's erotica. Crossroads excerpt  
 Exclusive: Crossroads contains the Dylan Cross novella "Road Trip" detailing the further misadventures of blackmailed housewife Amanda! ... he pulled her by her hair and slammed her over the hood of the car as he fumbled with his belt. "Please..." Amanda squirmed on the hood. As he drew the belt back, she covered her exposed asscheeks with her hands. "Move your hands. Put them on the hood, bitch." Then he was holding her phone and dialing it. With horror, she saw that the phone was "Calling MARK". "Please, no," she begged... he thumbed the speakerphone icon and set the phone down, just as her husband answered. "H-hi honey," Amanda forced herself to sound normal, even as Craig's hand slid up her thigh and found its way to her shaved pussy... he slid his finger inside her and began fucking her with it. She knew how dirty this was—talking to her husband on the phone while his best friend played with her pussy. Mark started speaking to someone else on his end. Craig took this opportunity to move in "for the kill," both his hands working her furiously. He leaned over and whispered, "You dirty fucking whore. Make that married pussy cum all over my fingers... Afterward, I'm going to whip your ass for being a disobedient whore..." As her husband continued talking, she bucked against Craig's fingers, her hips seemingly having a mind of their own as her orgasm overtook her... This is a must-read for fans of Amanda's Descent! crossroads   Watch for Crossroads--coming soon! Dylan Cross is an independent author of erotica titles including Amanda's Descent and Back to School. He is a former Marine and software developer, and a founding member of the Erotic Authors Guild.

EXCERPT


Excerpt Chapter 1
Dead Men Can Walk
There was a soft rocking motion inside him, gentle at first, and then more persistent.  He was scared. His insides churned and bubbled, as though they had taken on a life of their own. He felt his stomach cave in on itself; bile rose in his throat with no outlet to escape. There was a huge pressure building inside his chest, despite the slowing rhythm of his heart and breathing. What was happening? Why did he feel like he was morphing into something else? His thoughts were there but his body was slipping out of control.

He was almost jiggling on the inside now. He couldn’t tell if it was his whole body moving rapidly, or the motion of blood surging through his veins, trying to reach all his vital organs. A sense of being invaded came over him. Angry at the intrusion that he could not define or fight, he tried once more to work his voice but this time heard a stranger’s voice.

“Relax, Collin. I’m going to take care of you now. You are coming with me.” It was the same voice that had been talking to Darius only moments ago, but now it was smooth and soothing, not a trace of menace, all charm. And it was coming from within him.

“Let’s go Collin.” A jolt of fear gripped him ever tighter. Please just let me die, he thought inwardly. I can’t do this. I don’t understand.

“Collin? What’s wrong?” the voice asked him, “I said lets go.” He was jerked upright into a sitting position, with no real help from his hands, he stood up in one sweeping motion at a ninety degree angle.

Darius let out a terrified yelp.

“Oh God. No,” he started to whimper as Collin began to walk away from the churchyard and down the sidewalk. Before he was out of sight, he stopped abruptly and turned his head back towards the church.

Although Collin had no control over his motions, he knew on a conscious level that he was smiling demonically at Darius, and slowly waving goodbye. “We’ll be back after we are healed.”  He spoke with reassurance, just like a sweet promise from mother to child. He knew he was walking away from his home where Olivia was, the town where his sister lived, where he was born. This was almost a relief. The need to see them was great, but he also knew he was not himself anymore. This thing that was moving him now, that had prevented his death, was not a good thing.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was born in Chesapeake, Virginia on April 19th, 1979. I was raised within the American Indian religion and was taught great respect for the earth and all its living beings. Powwows, sweat lodges, vision quests, you name it, I’ve done it. I was the weird kid who would confront kids on the playground in elementary school when they squished a bug. I would very sincerely tell them what they were doing was morally wrong and then I would pray for the bug to come back as a butterfly in its next life.

I grew up admiring my father, Barry Weinstock, as an author. He took me around the country to different places so he could research and write his Wilderness Survival books. One of his greatest works, “The Path of Power,” was written with a great medicine man, Sunbear.

When I was twelve I started hand writing novels. My first one was two thousand pages. My dad always encouraged me and would rave about my writing. He gave me the confidence I needed to keep writing and follow my dream. My daughter, who is twelve, is currently working on her first novel. I hope to continue the legacy.

Victoria Zak lives in the sunshine state with her husband, two beautiful children, and three furry friends. Before having kids, Victoria spent fifteen years in the veterinary business and volunteered in pet rescue. "One of my most rewarding jobs was finding unwanted animals their forever homes." A writing career was the last item listed on her bucket list, until she discovered that she wanted to put her stories on paper and breathe life into her characters. Her love for Scotland, curiosity of history, and passion for romance has inspired her to write her first book, Highland Burn. "Fourteenth century Scotland was a fascinating time in history. Not only was Scotland fighting for their freedom from the English king, their own people fought each other; clan vs clan. Though being a woman of the twenty-first century, I wouldn't want to live in those unsettled times. But writing historical fiction paranormal romance allows me to escape into their world and breathe a fresh air of romance and magic into that era, which I love to do."

Goodreads Blurb:
Luke Isaak, the drummer for Blood Rights is on a mission. Machala Winters got away once and Luke is determined it will never happen again. She’s perfect for his sadistic proclivities but she held herself back the first time and drove him crazy.

Machala knows what she wants and if Luke would accept her submission and stop prying into her past, he would be at the top of the list. Some things are meant to stay buried and a certain Dom needs to respect her privacy.

Sometimes love hurts in more ways than one. And sometimes a temporary Dom holds a girl’s heart forever.

This book is not for the faint of heart. BDSM, sadism, mm, mfm, and mf. Recommended 18+

My Review:
I'm a fan of Holly Roberts and her no holds bar, tell it like it is writing style. Temporary Dom is no different with the exception that it's deep, soul deep and not for those weak of heart or close minded. The readers that will get the most enjoyment out of this story are any that go in with their mind wide open. A great read for any fans of the genre that enjoy a great BDSM read with a VERY realistic feel.

Machala is a very strong woman that's unaware how deep her strength runs, or even of its existence. She's work very hard her entire life to get where she currently is. Which is a very successful and independent woman. The thing is, she also has needs that she doesn't have much time to explain or really much time for. These needs brings Luke into her life. Now it's up to fate and Machala if Luke stays in her life or not. IS she ready to open up and let someone in?
You're going to have to read to find out ;)

Once again, bravo Holly!

EXCERPT

I can’t get her to look at me, I think she’s ashamed that she has no experience to go with. When I’m finally begging, she looks up and I can’t help it. She looks so lost, so sad. I know that she just needs the courage, but how will she ever find it if she doesn’t know what the reward is like? So I lean over, I place my hand on her cheek, and my lips on hers. She doesn’t freak out, so I use my tongue to entice her. I run it along her lower lip. I feel her breathing pick up and I’m nervous she’ll push me away, but when she doesn’t I try to coax her lips apart so I can really kiss her. When she opens them, her tongue meets mine and I have to keep repeating to myself, “Slow, slow, slow,” or my body might take over and try to push her past her limits. She’s not ready for more than this.

I don’t let myself linger too long. I would love to kiss her all night, but she needs baby steps. I need to give her that or this won’t work. “I’m sorry. I couldn’t help myself, but I should’ve made sure it was okay first.” I say it knowing that she needed the surprise of it or it would’ve never happened.

Her response takes me by surprise, “Don’t. Be. Sorry.” She is breathing hard and can’t form a sentence. I love it. That means she loved it. When she brings her hand up to touch her lips, I know I can make this better for her. I stop her hand with mine and leaving the other on her cheek, I lean back in for a deeper kiss. She responds immediately. I make this one longer, but not much. This time when I pull back, we are both panting for air.

“Wow.” A simple statement from her confirming that she liked it.
