Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - WEEK EIGHTEEN - PLAYOFF BOUND!

Eighteen weeks come and gone. Eleven wins and five losses. Eight and zero at home. It’s been a mighty fine year for those Bengals. Proud of you. Here’s to a great postseason!

Now, let’s get to those Honorable Mentions!

“...with a big stick...”
Endowed. Nice.

“...solidified the back end...”
Gooey doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.

“...hand gets extended up the middle....”
FISTING!!

And now for the Quotes of the Week. Some of these are real winners.

“...goes over the top to White...”
Maybe there’s a chain of command?

“...talked about protection—here’s the adjustment....”
Does someone need to find his cup? Or his rubber?

“...in the slot to the right...”
Maybe that’s the hot spot? Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it.

“...traditional tight end position...”
Traditional is good. Very good.

“....they get it off...”
Aw, now that’s not nice. At least use his or her name, not it.

“....used his legs today when he needed it...”
He needed extra leverage.

Now for the Doozy of the Week. This was said on national television and I still can’t believe it.
“...Five downs with his legs today....”
And
“...those legs are weapons....”

The man has some great legs. It’s apparent. Look out for those weapons.

The Ravens...for every up there is a down. The Really Good Andy Dalton and the Not So Great Andy Dalton showed up, but that didn’t stop us. We netted us some birds and now we’re playoff bound! Who Dey!!

 Thanks for reading and Go Bengals!! Let’s take it all the way!



Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - WEEK SEVENTEEN (a little late)

 Week Seventeen...where’d you go...? Seems like we were just beginning the season and now we’re right from the end. The win versus the Vikings was nice. 10-5 isn’t shabby, either.

Now, let’s get to those Honorable Mentions!

“...They don’t care they’ve got nine men in the pocket...”
Crap! That’s a stretched out pocket.

“...pass could not be defended by Bush...”
Maybe she wanted it?

“...more drops than any....”
He’s on a losing streak. It happens.

And now for the Quotes of the Week. Some of these are real winners.

“...huge for him...”
Um... does he have interchangeables?

“...longest active losing streak....”
Yep, it’s a serious problem.

“...in the slot to the right...”
Maybe that’s the hot spot? Don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it.

“...traditional tight end position...”
Traditional is good. Very good.

“....Secure to the edge...”
Safety first. Always good.

“....working on the hand off to Nicks...”
She gets passed around. Nice.

Now for the Doozy of the Week. This was said on national television and I still can’t believe it.
“...One guy strips ‘em and one recovers it....”
Hey, they’ve got a game plan. Can’t knock that.

The Vikings were a good foe. We came, we saw, we goofed a little and we won. Now it’s off to TACKLE the Ravens.  Who Dey!

 Thanks for reading and Go Bengals!!

Sunday Snoggin' with Jingle Claws!

READ THE OTHER SNOGS HERE!




 It's Sunday Snoggin' Time and I thought I'd share a bit from my latest release, Jingle Claws. Tiger shifter hunting his mate and a woman wanting the perfect Christmas...this could equal a white hot holiday if they get together. See what happens next!




Jingle Claws by Megan Slayer
Paranormal, Contemporary, Holiday
Novella
Shara Azod Publishing

Christmas is the time to come together. But for a tiger shifter stuck in his tiger form, it can be a lonely time. Kash isn’t just alone, he’s stuck in the zoo. He needs to find his mate and fast—or his human form will be lost to the tiger forever. There’s one woman who can help him out...if he doesn’t scare the hell out of her first.
Charise doesn’t believe in shifters. There isn’t such a thing. When the man appears in the sick bay where the tiger once lounged, she’s not sure what to think. He claims she’s his salvation. Will she be able to accept the Christmas spirit and his wild story in order to get her happily ever after? Only time and a little visit from Jingle Claws will tell.

Available now:

And now an excerpt!


1

“What a way to spend the holidays.” Charise Sutton scanned the medical sheets on the tigers under her care. Volunteering to care for the animals over the holiday break had seemed like a good idea—back when the other workers were still at the zoo. Instead, there she was, alone on the night before Christmas. Well, alone save for the bare-bones staff. For once, she wished she still had family around. Someone to care about her during the Christmas season and a place to go to celebrate. Nope. After breast cancer had claimed her mother and throat cancer took her father, she’d vowed to help others. Charise shut the lid on her laptop and glanced over at the monitor for the tiger enclosure. She’d administered the meds they needed. The three Bengal tigers napped happily in their faux jungle enclosure. The white tiger grabbed her attention. She loved the look of the massive animal. Then again, she’d always had a love of cats. Big, small...didn’t matter. Such intelligent creatures and so full of attitude. The tiger hadn’t moved much since that afternoon. “He should be up and at ‘em by now,” she murmured. He’d been withdrawn since the transfer from the Paducah Zoo, but the meds should’ve worked. She left her seat and strode over to the quarantine enclosure. The tiger flopped on his side and stared up at her. His chest moved, proving he was still alive.
She squatted at the outside edge of the enclosure. “I just want you to get better,” she said to him. She closed her eyes and placed her hand on the chain link. “God, help him. If I can’t bring him around by my hand, then I offer him over to you.”
Charise opened her eyes. He didn’t seem to be responding—not even to her prayer. She sighed and stood. Sleep beckoned. She’d been up all day worrying about him. If she didn’t get some rest, she’d be no good tomorrow. “Good night, handsome boy. Merry Christmas.”
She made her way back to the main lab room and plopped in front of the monitors. The office chair wasn’t an ideal place to crash, but any port in a storm. Charise removed the clip from her hair and kicked out of her shoes. Just a little nap. Long enough to recharge, then she’d check on the tiger again. She leaned back and draped her arms along the thinly padded armrests. Charise closed her eyes. Just a tiny nap.
A roar jarred her from sleep. Charise sat up and blinked. Where the hell was she? She rubbed her eyes, then glanced around the room. Oh, yeah...the lab. She turned her attention to the monitor. A man sat in the sanitary white enclosure.
“No freaking way,” she blurted.
She scrubbed a hand across her face once more. Her eyes had to be playing tricks on her from lack of sleep. She checked the wall clock. Two a.m. Well, shit. Her nap had lasted more than four hours. She looked back at the screens to the isolation areas.
The man still sat against the wall, his long legs stretched out before him. She looked closer at the black-and-white image. No...couldn’t be...well…he was naked.
“Oh, my God.” Charise jumped up from her chair and bolted from the observation room into the main isolation room. “How did you get in there?” she demanded. “Get out of there. You could be killed.”
At once she regretted what she’d said. Get out of there? What if the man was a maniac? She slipped her cell phone from her pocket and dialed 911.

Monday Morning Armchair Quarterback - WEEK FIFTEEN


This week was a reality check. You can’t win ‘em all and you’ve got to get tough. We’re learning. But hey, we didn’t roll over once we were down... we just didn’t bounce up high enough. Here’s to week sixteen being better.

Now, let’s get to those Honorable Mentions!

“...turn it on late and not let go...”
The black light? Or the charm?

“...this is penetration...”
I’d hate to hear what else you’d call it.

“...2 gap style defense....”
Got it on all angles, nice.

And now for the Quotes of the Week. Some of these are real winners.

“...watch the ball handling...”
Yes, because a ball needs to be handled.

“...doesn’t get off that block....”
If we’re talking fetish and blocks, then no, he shouldn’t.

“...hard to bring to the ground...”
But he loves wrestling, so it’s all good.

“...a little shove...”
Roughing the passer? Or the offense? Sounds kind of fun.

“....use a big body up front...”
But the question is, for what?

“....another hamstring issue...”
More legs! Let’s see those legs.

Now for the Doozy of the Week. This was said on national television and I still can’t believe it.
“...Good job in the back end....”
Snort. What’s he doing back there that’s so great?

So we’ve got two to go. Could be good. Could be bad. We’ll get there and get our act in gear. Have to. Can we do this? Yes, we can.


 Thanks for reading and Go Bengals!!

BlisseKiss Kissmas - Ribboned!



My kiss this week is from Ribboned, my white hot BDSM story featuring elves!

Ribboned (Red Velvet Christmas) by Megan Slayer  
Number in Series: 5
Genres: Erotic Romance, Novella, BDSM
Themes: Elves, Dragons and Magical Creatures, Christmas
Ribbons aren’t just for decorating anymore.
Daria Elf never expected to be moved to the velvet ribbon department right before Christmas. She also never expected her boss to be the object of her wettest fantasies. Can she keep her cool, or will she end up on Raven's Naughty List?
Raven Elf has his sights set on Daria. He wants her for his department, his bed and bound in his thick velvet ribbons. He'll get his girl, but the hard part is convincing her that their connection is meant to last.

And now a hot excerpt!!
She clicked the handle and eased the door open. There, in all his red-and-green, towering glory, stood Raven. His blue eyes blazed and a grimace marred his face. “You were summoned ten minutes ago. Where have you been?” He folded his muscle-corded arms. “Hmm?”
His gravelly voice drew a shiver from deep in her being. She cleared her throat. No way she’d let him scare her -- not yet. “Once I picked my jaw up off the floor, I ran right down here.” And worked up her courage to talk to him. She rested her hands on her hips. “I thought maybe Santa was in the nog again and made a mistake.”
Raven stepped toward her. Unlike the rest of the elves, he didn’t wear a hat. His dark hair slid over his brow, obscuring her view of his eyes. “This request is very real and binding.” His voice dropped to a growl on the last word.
Her heart and brain warred. Working in the ribbon room was a year-round commitment. Unlike those in the other parts of the Christmas plant, the people who worked with Raven didn’t seem to have much of a social life. Then again, did she recall anyone admitting they worked with him? Looking at the strapping elf in front of her, she wondered if it was the binding part of the job that scared people.
Raven was the stuff of rumor and innuendo. He didn’t just use his ribbon for package decoration or house décor -- he dabbled in BDSM and used the velvety strips to bind his lovers. Her body tingled. Would he wrap her in nothing but his ribbons? Make her scream his name? Oh, holy night, she hoped so.
“I’m willing to take on the standard hitch down here,” she said, praying her voice hadn’t wobbled.
“Perfect.” His eyes glittered and a small smile curled on his lips. “Absolutely perfect.”
* * *
Raven widened his stance and drank in the sight of the tiny elf. She had no idea what the frost she’d gotten herself into. He suppressed a bigger grin. He loved newbies, especially ones with soft brown hair and crimson lips. His cock twitched behind the buttons of his pants. Something about her screamed innocence. She didn’t know how pretty she was. His jacket suffocated him. Pine nuts. Few women affected him, but she brought the arousal from deep in his soul.
Little did the faux-fur-wearing minx know just how binding the ribbon room could be.
“This is the Ribbon Room.” He put one arm around her shoulders and guided her to one of the three chairs in the room. “I prefer to work alone, but this year the requests for red velvet ribbon are on the rise. Santa agreed to my request for help.” He sat her down on the plush black velvet chair. “You.”
How’d she like that little revelation?
“Me?” she squeaked and stared at him. “I don’t know anything about ribbons other than they belong on presents.”
“I’ll train you.” In every way he knew how. “We’ll be working tonight until the wee hours. Can you manage?” Could she take the strain of working with him?
“Yes, sir.” She smiled and gave him a mock salute. “You tell me what to do and I’ll do it as best I can.”
Yes, she would.

Mixing Mike - Out now at Amazon!


Zero, Ohio
Mixing Mike
by Megan Slayer

Zero, Ohio, where the temperatures might be below freezing but you can always melt the frost with smoking hot sex. 
* * *
For these two men, this record could be the soundtrack to their lives – if they’re willing to mix things up.

Meticulous and organized, air traffic controller Mike Larson has every reason to be wary of mixing his passion for music with love. When Mike’s hunt to complete his Top 100 of the ‘80s list brings him to Vintage Vinyl, a shock of guyliner, dyed hair and flamboyant personality rocks his orderly world. Can he risk a step outside his comfort zone for a chance with Leon?  

Flamboyant Leon Sanders uses attitude to keep others at a distance, because he doesn’t believe in love or a lasting relationship. When he turns up the charm at his music store Vintage Vinyl, he makes the best sales. Something about the quiet man beckons Leon to give love a chance, but does he dare mix it up with Mike? 

Amazon | Coming soon to: Barnes & Noble | All Romance eBooks | Decadent


Enjoy the following excerpt for MIXING MIKE:

“Good. You’re still here.” The voice stopped Leon. The people who came to Vintage tended to ask him for help locating special items, but none of them sounded quite like this guylow and husky.
“I need to find George Benjamin,” the man said.
Leon whipped around, ready to tell the customer to go inside and fill out a special request form at the counter, when he paused. The moment he clapped eyes on the man, the breath wrenched from his body. Tall, blond, muscles—but not built like a brick wall—and green eyes. Holy hell, he loved green eyes.
Although the guy projected a calm, smooth exterior, the way he balled his fists made Leon wonder about his story.
“You’re looking for the Peach Slayers record, aren’t you, baby? It’s their rarest album, but the best music they ever made. Everyone wants a copy, but no one can seem to get their hands on it.” Leon hooked his fingers in his jeans pockets. The chains from his wallet to his belt loops clinked. “I had one and it grew legs. Someone stole it about four months ago, hon, but we might be able to find you something—close.”
“Oh.” Green eyes’ shoulders slumped. Still, the polo shirt wrapped around him like a second skin, giving tantalizing glimpses of the hard body underneath. “Damn. That’s the last one I don’t have.”
His salesman feelers perked. “You’ve got a collection or you just really like the hits of the ’80s, babe? Which one is it?” Leon shifted his weight from his left foot to his right and adjusted his pants to hide the burgeoning erection. God. Looking at a man with green eyes was now all it took to turn him on? What a horn ball. Still, something about the hunk made him want to look twice.
“It’s silly to most people, but I love music. All music. One of my things is to collect every number one album. I’ve got a whole list of the top hits of the 1980s and I’m only missing two.” He clenched and unclenched his fingers, then stuck out his hand. “Think you can help?”
Leon shook his hand. “I might be able to do—something. For a fee.” The guy liked music almost as much as he did and sounded almost as neurotically methodical about collecting records. “You’ve got the old Hot Twenty-Five lists?” A man after his own heart. “Okay, I’ve got to ask. Disc or vinyl? You strike me as the vinyl type, but I’ve been surprised before.”
“Vinyl all the way.” The guy smiled and his eyes twinkled. “I’m Mike.”
“And I am in love.”

Playing what Stafford’s what?

“....pump under pressure...”
Ooh, he’s loaded!

It's time for the Red Velvet Blog Hop Stop here at my blog. I thought to celebrate the heat of the season with some white hot one-liners from the series. Enjoy the hotness and be sure to enter the contest! 

Ribboned by Megan Slayer  

Red Velvet Christmas

Ribbons aren’t just for decorating anymore.

Daria Elf never expected to be moved to the velvet ribbon department right before Christmas. She also never expected her boss to be the object of her wettest fantasies. Can she keep her cool, or will she end up on Raven's Naughty List?

Raven Elf has his sights set on Daria. He wants her for his department, his bed and bound in his thick velvet ribbons. He'll get his girl, but the hard part is convincing her that their connection is meant to last.

Yet to Come by Zenobia Renquist  

Red Velvet Christmas

Rae is a ghost of Christmas future. Her track record for making people see and turn to the light is unblemished, except for one man. Zane has hit her list for the third and final time. The incentive he wants to be good is one she refuses to give him. Rae cannot be with a man who allies so easily with bad, but her desire demands she not be without him. At sunrise Christmas morning, her powers fade and with them any chance she has of seeing Zane again unless he can convince her the best is yet to come.

White Hot One line: 
His stance was shaky -- the result of the pent-up magic trying to bind them together and failing, rather than sated passion.


~ ~ ~
Ticket to Ride by Ana Raine 


Red Velvet Christmas

Addison and Tyler have been together for five years, but when they move in together, Addison discovers Tyler has a secret -- a hidden stash of bondage magazines, with pictures of Addison tucked inside.
Addison never thought he'd be into kinky sex, but he'd do anything to please Tyler -- including venturing out to an adult toy store on a hunt to find out more about BDSM. He's intrigued enough to bring home a rope set so he can surprise Tyler with the best Christmas present ever -- a kinky, tied up Addison.


White Hot One-Line: 
My mouth was still bound, but even if I had been able to speak, I wouldn’t be able to find words as to how satisfied I was.

~ ~ ~ 
Reindeer Sex Games by Lacey Savage 

Red Velvet Christmas

Rudolph is convinced reindeer were meant to keep their hooves firmly on the ground, but that's just not an option when Christmas comes around. Santa and the rest of the world need him to guide that sleigh. He usually finds his courage in a glass of whiskey downed before takeoff. But this year, his favorite watering hole offers a little more excitement than he expected.

Nikki McAvoy knows of only one way to make it through the holiday season unscathed, and that's by hooking up with a stranger on Christmas Eve. When she spots Rudolph at the bar, she knows she's got her man. A bit of flirting leads to much, much more... and soon Nikki is spread-eagled and tied to a bed, playing the kind of reindeer games she's only fantasized about.

But when a dead-ringer for Santa Claus barges into the room claiming Nikki has ruined Christmas, she's got a lot of explaining to do…

White Hot One-Liner:

She watched her gorgeous lover -- a man who’d been on top of her, inside her, only minutes earlier -- spread his arms and transform from a hot human male to a beautiful reindeer.

Merry Mate by BJ McCall

Red Velvet Christmas

A red velvet Santa's hat that only fits one's true love? Sierra doesn't believe in magic, but she's willing to give it a try and find her merry mate.

Banning is in love with Sierra, but the werewolves of Elk Mountain stick to their own kind. Banning would do anything to spend time with the beautiful she-wolf and he's more than willing to try on a Santa's hat to please her.

Humans are off limits, but what's a wolf to do when the hat is a perfect fit?

Vera’s Christmas Wish by Sarah Makela 

Red Velvet Christmas, book 6

Vera's back in Finland looking to find some Yuletide love with a sexy elf.

Vera Hayes had the most amazing Christmas ever a year ago. Now she's back in Finland hoping to find Pekka, her sexy Finnish elf, in hopes of creating new and delightful holiday memories. Not having any luck, she goes back to her cabin where a deranged goat man storms inside demanding food and drink.

On the run from the goat man, she stumbles across Pekka overseeing a huge herd of reindeer. He's glad to see her, even if he's more than a little amused at the trouble she always finds herself in.



White Hot One-Liner: 

“You’re either not wearing underwear, or you’re not done undressing. Should I assist you?” A wicked glint shone in his eyes.

Ribbons and Lace Anne Kane

Red Velvet Christmas


All he wants for Christmas is a sexy little elf!
 
When Leonardo Delgado fell in love with a woman who was already engaged, he resigned himself to loving her from afar. But when her fiancée ran off with another woman, he knew exactly what he wanted to make his Christmas Merry!
 
Amanda-Lyn doesn’t believe in love any more. She takes a job as  an elf at the local mall, and starts to rebuild her life. A nice one-night stand without all that romantic nonsense is all she wants this holiday season. It might have worked, too, except for her sinfully handsome boss and a jolly old matching-making man in a red suit and cap. 


White Hot One-Liner:  


Time to make a fresh start, and Mr. Leonardo Delgado looked fresh enough to send curls of heat flooding through every inch of her body.

Hearth and Home by Ayla Ruse 


Red Velvet Christmas

What’s an elf to do when she finds herself between Hearth and Home?

Santa strives for peace and harmony, not only on Earth, but in the Otherworlds as well. This year proves that peacekeeping is no easy task. First, he has an unhappy elf on his hands. Nikki runs one of his gift departments, but the corporate world is not making her happy. She wants a husband and her current elf pickings are slim. Second, Santa’s received a request from two of Bindoal Dimension’s most prominent males…Kobol Home and Braun Hearth need a wife. Santa’s easy solution? Put the three together and let them find a happily ever after.

For Nikki, Kobol and Braun, however, Santa’s gift comes with unexpected surprises. Nikki believes this is a one-night stand. Braun does not care for elves, and Kobol’s afraid Nikki will want to return to the corporate world.

Even though sparks ignite between the three, will this be enough for them to create a happily ever after, or will their expectations make for a regrettable Christmas Eve?


White Hot One-Liner:
Braun has his new present, Nikki, just where he wants her. With a wicked grin he says, “Now it’s time to open you up.”
