Excerpt from Lust and Larceny erotic thriller short

“There,” Trevor whispered, sliding the keyboard drawer back into the server rack. He powered down the remote entry point with a few quick switches, then pulled a flash drive from a slot and turned in his chair to face her. “All yours, baby.”

She leaned in and grabbed him by the back of his head with both hands and mashed her lips onto his. Her tongue darted in and found his, and he bit down gently. She bit back, being rewarded with a light coppery taste that filled her senses. He reached around and grabbed her, squeezing at the spot where her thighs ended and the curve of her ass began. She felt his fingers graze her mound through her jeans and she purred.

“Come on,” she said as she pulled back from the kiss. “The room alarms will reset in two minutes. We need to be elsewhere when they do, and we still have that damned vent.” She stood upright and pulled him by the hand as he tucked the flash drive into his pocket. “And you and I have plans.”

Lust and Larceny 2, the next in the Ariana Walsh erotic thriller short story series, is here!

The next Ariana Walsh story is officially here! I’m excited and proud to say that Lust and Larceny 2, another sexy heist thriller featuring the sultry and dangerous Ariana Walsh, has officially hit the e-book stores. And this time, she’s running into a problem she never saw coming.

Diamonds have always been known as a girl’s best friend. Ariana Walsh would agree, especially when they were stolen diamonds. And especially when she was the one doing the stealing.

Javier Garces is a handsome manservant to a rich diamond broker, one with access to some of the world’s finest jewels. And he has fallen under Ariana’s sexual spell.

Ariana and Javier pull off the diamond heist of a lifetime, but the thrills don’t end when the job does. From the broker’s study to the front seat of Javier’s SUV, Ariana will show him how much she appreciates his help. But sometimes lust can blind.

Lust and Larceny 2 is an erotic thriller short story of approximately 5,000 words (20 pages) and contains graphic sex and profanity. For mature readers only.

Lust and Larceny 2 is available for KINDLE US ($.99), KINDLE UK (£.77), SMASHWORDS ($.99), and is up and running on GOODREADS. And don’t forget about Ariana’s first erotic thriller, Lust and Larceny, for Kindle US/Kindle UK/Smashwords/Goodreads.

Pick both of them up for a third the cost of a decent glass of red wine, and enjoy!

Story imitating art? Dutch art heist ties in with a scene in my erotic short!

Well, this was eye-catching for me! As a preface, here is a snippet of a scene from my erotic thriller short, Lust and Larceny:

“Hey, don’t knock impressionism,” Ariana said. “That’s a Monet. London, the Parliament, Effects of Sun in the Fog, it’s called. I love the way the sunlight spreads across the surface of the river. Just a hint of what’s in the sky above. Oranges and reds. Sexy.” She took one last deep breath, tasting his scent.

Trevor reached over and stroked her shoulder. “With the money we just made,” he said, overemphasizing the first syllable of the word money, “you can probably buy an original Monet.”

Ariana groaned at his lame pun. If there was one thing Trevor was lacking, it was a sense of humor. However he more than made up for it with his other talents.

She laid her right hand on his chest and rested her chin on it, looking at him with a grin. “It is an original.” She bent her head forward and bit his nipple. “Now how about that celebratory tequila?”

She gave his softening cock one last squeeze and got up from the bed. She picked up her black button-down shirt from the floor and threw it on, then padded over to the kitchen. The floor was chilly; not for the first time she regretted having this studio apartment done in hardwood. These winter nights, she’d much rather have had a nice wool carpet, perhaps a fine Persian. Maybe in the next one.

“Original?” Trevor called from the bed. “Seriously?”

“Yes, seriously.”

She picked up the bottle of Casa Herradura Seleccion Suprema and pulled out the glass stopper. It had been several weeks since she had savored her favorite libation, and her mouth watered. She sniffed the open bottle, breathing in the cinnamon and vanilla aromas. She saved this particular tequila for special occasions such as this. A cool forty million distributed among her various offshore accounts certainly qualified as a special occasion.

“How much did it cost?”

She picked up the glass she had set aside for Trevor and poured three fingers of the amber liquid into it. “Not sure. Maybe eighteen or so.” She reached up into the overhead cabinet and took out her favorite fluted tequila snifter and poured her own three fingers.

“Eighteen grand? Seems like a bargain for some famous original.”

She set the bottle down. “Million.”

“Eighteen…million?” His voice rose half an octave and Ariana smiled.

“Something like that. A gift from a former boyfriend.” She held the two glasses up to one of the tiny LED lights in the kitchen ceiling and swirled them. The light filtered through the amber and cast yellow tinged beams onto the countertop.

“I’m feeling a bit inadequate,” Trevor said with a small laugh. “How am I supposed to compete with that?”

Ariana walked back into the bedroom and kneeled at the edge of the bed. “You don’t need to, babe. He’s moved on.” She handed him his glass. “It’s just you now.”

Now, here is an article on an art heist that happened yesterday in Rotterdam. Not the same painting, but it’s the same impressionist subject, London, that Monet used quite often:

Thieves broke into a Rotterdam museum on Tuesday and walked off with works from the likes of Picasso, Monet, Gauguin and Matisse potentially worth hundreds of millions.

Among the stolen paintings were… Claude Monet’s 1901 “Waterloo Bridge, London” and “Charing Cross Bridge, London”…

Whoa. I swear it wasn’t me. Or Ariana, or her former boyfriend. Really.

Two more fabulous reviews of Lust and Larceny…am I allowed to squee?

Please? Can I squee? I don’t get to do it very often in daily life!

Two more humbling and exciting reviews came in for my erotic thriller short story, Lust and Larceny (just $.99 on Smashwords and Kindle US, and £.77 for Kindle UK):

 

 

 

There couldn’t be any better motivation to crack down and stay up late to finish my full-length novel. THANK YOU!

Two reviews just arrived for Lust and Larceny, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

I celebrated my first sale of Lust and Larceny last night with a tequila (an homage to one of the scenes in the story), but when I got up this morning I found that I received TWO reviews of the story – already! Now what to celebrate with? I couldn’t be more thrilled or honored. I write for fun, for an escape, and when someone else uses their hard-earned money to PAY for a story I wrote? Then even more importantly, READS it? Then REVIEWS it? My hair is standing on end just typing this up!

Anyway, here are snippets from each review with links to read the rest. I’m just…humbled.

From Jan (blog & Smashwords):

The progression from beginning to end is smart. The chemistry between characters sizzles. The love scene sets fire to the drapes and burns the house down. And if I may, the ending to said love scene is quite well, let’s just say it is the right kind of dirty.

Characters got the depth to make them real, and it makes sense to have them in the situation they find themselves in.

I’ll admit that I enjoyed Lust and Larceny. Krystina Stevens deserves to be read. If you are considering this book, then go for it. You won’t be disappointed.

From daisyrose (Amazon & Goodreads):

Ariana is a thief and a good one. Her partner in crime Trevor
is geeky cute! Steamy celebration after the crime spree is just that HOT.

What got me was the ending, I wasn’t expecting it. I like when an ending takes me by surprise!

I look forward to a more lengthy book from Krystina Stevens.

Tequila all around!!

Summary of Red Letters, due fall 2012!

Tania Lane is a young housewife in rural Connecticut who has fallen unwillingly into a routine of boredom. Her husband Martin, an ambitious investment banker, spends his days and many late evenings in New York City on business, leaving Tania alone in an upscale Westport neighborhood new to the couple. When he is home, he’s distracted, busy, and tired. Married life wasn’t turning out like she had hoped.

A red envelope turns up in the mail one day, addressed to Tania with no return address, and her boredom turns to excitement. The envelope contains a single slip of burgundy parchment paper that bears one handwritten phrase: “You are beautiful.

Over the next two weeks, every other day, another letter arrives with a different, yet thrilling message. Tania keeps the letters from Martin, only letting her lone friend in the neighborhood in on the secret, wondering who her admirer is.

When erotic gifts start showing up by private courier, Tania’s excitement turns to lust. And when her mysterious admirer knocks on the door, her world is turned upside down.

Life will never be the same. But Tania’s fantasy admirer may not be all that he seems. Lust can have consequences.

Look for Red Letters this fall!
