SNEAK PEEK! Excerpt from forthcoming RED LETTERS erotic suspense thriller

Here it is, my lovely friends and subscribers, the first look at Red Letters, due later this fall. Tania Lane is ready for a night on the town, or at least she thinks she is:

“You look fucking hot.”

Katie stood on my front porch, staring at me open-mouthed.

I spent an inordinate amount of time getting ready for the evening, and I still wasn’t sure why. We had polished off the basket work, and the calzones, with hours to spare. Extra coffee always helped, and Katie’s hyper mood gave us even more of a boost. We had finished before the sun had even set, which I thought was quite an accomplishment considering the amount of baskets and the complexity of the order. Accountants paid well, but damned if they weren’t exacting when it came to ordering.

I had gone with black skinny jean (though I did feel a bit stuffed in them), high heeled black leather boots, and a tight fitting, low cut maroon blouse that showed a ridiculous amount of cleavage. And in a huge step for me, I spent over an hour curling my hair, giving it enough bounce to sit on my shoulders lightly. I pulled it over and behind my ears and went with long dangling diamond earrings, not my usual style, and topped it off with a plunging matching necklace. When I checked myself out in the bedroom mirror, I liked what I saw, but it was always nice to hear an unprompted comment. Even if it was from a friend.

And the fact that I wasn’t just looking hot, but fucking hot, gave me a little extra rush of excitement.

I wiggled my hips as I stood in the doorway. “Better than Converse, right?”

Katie whistled and nodded her approval. “Somebody’s looking for a man tonight.”

I held up my hand and gave her a warning glance.

“Right,” she said. “No man. But I’ll tell you, if I didn’t enjoy men so much, I might switch sides tonight. And I really enjoy men.”

I smiled broadly. “If your prospects don’t pan out, I’m home all night.”

Katie laughed and grabbed my arm. “Let’s go, hottie, before I take you to bed right here and now.”

“Hold on, I have to grab my purse and text Martin.”

Katie’s head lolled back on her shoulders. “Right, I’m sure he can’t stop wondering what you’re doing tonight.”

“It’ll just be a second.”

I turned and went back into the house, then picked up my cellphone from the kitchen counter. The lock screen was blank. No messages from Martin. I took a deep breath and let it out slowly. I assumed he’d be working late, of course, and half the time he did, he didn’t call or text. But I looked fucking hot, or so I’d been told, and I really was hoping he’d be coming home tonight to see me. If not now, later on.

I unlocked the phone and sent a quick text: “Going out to Jake’s with Katie. See you when you get home? Love you.”

I stuck the phone in my ‘going out’ clutch and headed for the door.

What do you think? Make you want to read more? Stay tuned, it’s almost here!

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.
