So excited to have Kerri Nelson visiting today. She's such a dynamic and personable writer. She's got a giveaway for today, and a Grand Prize for her blog tour ... so make sure to read all the way through.
The main demon in my book Courting Demons has special mind warping seductive powers. He can sort of get inside your head and seduce you without even touching you. Here’s a scene where he’s attempting to seduce the heroine:
(Edited for length and content)
Her body involuntarily leaned towards him with each word he
spoke. A shiver ran up her spine as she had a sudden graphic image
of his mouth on her body. She shook her head in response as if
trying to wake herself from a dream.
“Are you quite all right?” he asked, moving towards her and
reaching out one, slender hand to touch her forearm with his cool
His touch made her jump backwards and her legs collided
with the mattress. She lost her balance and proceeded to land in a
sudden sitting position on top of the bed.
“What are you doing to me?” she asked, feeling a dizziness
and weakness in her chest.
She knew the pull of mystical forces when she felt them. She
was certainly no magic expert but she knew when someone was
working a spell on her, and something was happening to her right
“I’m not doing anything, Paisley. You are simply allowing your
mind and body to give in to your true desires.”
His words flowed through her as warm as the taste of strong
alcohol and she leaned backwards into the mattress. Then, he was
hovering over her and the smell of earth enveloped her as her
mind and body felt the pressure of a strong force.
He wasn’t touching her but she could still feel the weight of
him as he hovered over her body. The feeling was incredible and
she closed her eyes for just a moment to let it wash over her.
She was so tired and she just wanted to let go of the little
control she had left. She didn’t understand what was happening to
her. It was too much. Things were happening too quickly. She
couldn’t get a handle on any one thing before the next pressure
was weighing on her.
If she could just let go…if she could just surrender to her
body’s needs and desires. Then, maybe she could feel peace.
Just a little more…a little closer…
So, this got me to thinking. What if you could (from afar) get inside the mind of any celebrity male and get him to want you uncontrollably? Who would it be and why? What would you mentally convey to them? Some of the top on my list would be:
Why? Cause he’s a hottie athlete with a sexy accent.
What would I convey? That wife of yours is blah!
Why? Cause he plays such a brilliant damaged hero on Vampire Diaries.
What would I convey? I might be an older woman but—experience is a good thing!
Why? He’s that cutie from the show Life Unexpected. He just looks like he’d be a blast to hang out with.
What would I convey? Hollywood is boring. Move to the sunny south!
Why? Well, he’s Mr. Darcy. I mean, come on!
What would I convey? Get your shirt wet for me. Pretty please?
Why? He’s Gerard Butler. Enough said.
What would I convey? Uh…sputter…uh…sigh.
Courting Demons Blurb:
Paisley Barton was already having a bad day before she turned her husband into a rat.
First, she was fired by her boss and then came home to find hubby in the shower with a naked blonde chick. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but this break-up may just unleash hell on Earth when Paisley casts a spell of vengeance against her philandering husband.
After her spell casting inadvertently opens a portal between dimensions, Paisley finds her family home transformed into a nightly courtroom for settling disputes between demons of the underworld and she’s the judge! If that’s not enough, she’s got to deal with a charming, ancient demon named Camden who wants to be her personal bodyguard while trying to explain her husband’s sudden, mysterious disappearance to sexy police Detective Dalton Briggs.
But Paisley will show them all that an everyday working mom is better equipped than most to deal with the mystical mayhem…and with a tempting demon hottie and a flirtatious young detective vying for her affection, she soon learns that being single again isn’t so bad after all.
