Excerpt from forthcoming erotic thriller novel RED LETTERS

I looked at Katie’s other arm, which was still holding the bag straight out. Whatever was in the bag was smaller than the wine bag. “Tell me that’s not tequila.”

“Nope,” she said, setting it on the granite. “My present to you.” She reached into the bag and pulled out a small box, wrapped in colorful paper with a bow haphazardly stuck on top. She handed it to me and I looked at the comic font lettering on the wrapping paper.

“Happy Birthday?” I asked.

Katie shrugged. “All I had in the house. Besides,” she said with a mischievous smile, “it’s the thought that counts. And girl, I was thinking about you when I bought this.”

I squinted at her, but her face was impassive save for the smile. “Hint?” I asked.

She shook her head. “Open it.”

I tore the paper out from under the multiple strips of transparent tape she had nearly covered it in, finally exposing a white cardboard box. I glanced at Katie, whose smile was widening.

“Go on!”

I slowly opened the flap to the box, half expecting tortilla chips to come pouring out. Inside was a clear plastic box, the kind that hangs on a wall rack in a store. I pulled it out and looked at the bright pink object inside.

“Your very own jackrabbit!” she squealed, clapping her hands.

It was long, eight inches the label said, and thick. It had some row of beads about halfway down its length, four double A batteries packaged with it, and the most obscene little figurine mounted to one side.

I was terrified.

“Holy shit,” I breathed. “I’m supposed to stick this…”

“Where Martin won’t shine, baby!” She clapped again. “Oh, I was so going to get you the ten-inch model. I’ve got two of those…burned one of ‘em out! But you need to start slowly. I mean, if all you have is a little bullet thingy…”

“Start? Jesus, Katie, this thing scares the hell of me just looking at it.” I turned the package over and looked at the back. “Is it gas powered?”

She laughed out loud, the snorted. “No, that will be your Christmas gift.” She held up her hands when I looked sharply at her. “Kidding, kidding.” She walked around to stand beside me and started pointing at the parts of the monster toy.

“Waterproof. Very important for shower use,” she said. “Four different speeds, so you can, you know, change the mood. And look here,” she said, her finger tapping on the row of beads. “This section rotates. God, that’s friggin’ awesome.”

I felt my eyes start to return to their normal size, but was still petrified. For me, an adventurous night alone in bed was my four-incher and a cup of tea, not necessarily in that order. This thing was…terrifying.

“And the little thing on top?” I asked hesitantly, almost certain I knew her answer.

“That’s the piece of resistance. Or however they say that,” she said. She tapped the little figure, which from my angle did actually resemble a small rabbit. “For your big C.” She closed her eyes and started to hum. “Ooh, I have to go home now,” she said, then laughed.

I put the package back in the box and took a deep breath, blowing it out slowly. “Katie, I love you to death, but are you trying to kill me?”

“Silly. I’m trying to save you. From a life of boredom. Until your man treats you right, you need to take care of your own womanly needs.” She walked back to the other side of the island and crossed her arms, looking at me. “Or maybe I’ll call Brad to come over.”

“You do and I’ll call the fat man,” I countered. “I have his number.”

Her mouth fell open. “You’d better be shitting me.”

I smiled and slid the box to the side of the counter. “Maybe. Just remember, don’t mess with me.”

“Just you wait until you put that jackrabbit into action, honey. You’ll come running down the street to my house to thank me.”

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!

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.”

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.

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.
