Guest Author & Giveaway: Melissa MacNeal featuring Sexual Secrets

Thursday, November 19

 ****This giveaway has ended.  Thanks for joining in the fun!***

Aphrodisia erotic romance author Melissa MacNeal is my very special guest today to talk about her brand new book Sexual Secrets.  I'm reading it now, and there are definitely some secrets to explore!  Please welcome Melissa and keep reading for an exclusive excerpt for Seductive Musings readers.  Enjoy!

What if you could swap husbands—and not get caught? 

Come on, now! You know you thought about it for just a moment—maybe, in your mind’s eye, saw the husband you’d swap for! If you set aside that Inner Good Girl we all grew up with to let your fantasy play out, you’d probably enjoy a romp—or perhaps a whole new life—like you’ve never dared to imagine.

My French twin heroines, Camille and Colette, play it out for real, and their story makes SEXUAL SECRETS a funny “family affair” where true love and romance win out over the hand real life dealt them: when Camille married old Lord Bentley to escape a life in the Parisian streets, and her sister wed his prodigiously endowed son, Heath, they were escaping destitution. Rutledge Bentley even set them up in their own couturier shop, and they’re now designing exquisite gowns for London’s upper crust. From all appearances, their lives are perfect.

But reality sets in. Colette can’t get away from it—constantly!—while her poor sister can’t get any. And since we all know necessity is a mother, the sisters decide to make their switch at a costume ball. The girls live in opposite wings of the family mansion, so it’ll be easy to compare notes and coach each other on how NOT to alert the staff or their husbands with any telltale mannerisms.

But along comes a dark, exotic stranger . . . a fox in the right place at the right time. He enters LeChaud Soeurs to have a wedding gown made for his mysterious fiancée, planning to use the twins’ charade to carry out a secret motive of his own. And just as Rubio Palladino, the  medium, predicts in the opening line, Camille and Colette get caught up in “a time of cataclysmic change . . . a time of sexual upheaval so pronounced as to produce a whirlwind--no, a hurricane--of passion! You will feel like a volcano as you erupt with new sensations and delights!”

And YOU can win a copy of this book, which is just now hitting the shelves! So what’re you waiting for? Read on—and I hope you enjoy my story! And I thank you for playing along here!

Given the chance...would YOU swap husbands???

Delicious Deceit 

Saved from certain ruin in the back streets of Paris by the wealthy Rutledge Bentley, identical twins Colette and Camille are now members of London's elite. Besotted with their beauty, Rutledge has taken Camille for his bride and married off her twin to his son, Heath. But while Colette can barely keep up with the sexual demands of her prodigious lover, Camille is left unfulfilled by her much-older husband and desires much more... 

And so it occurs to them: why not change places?? 

As Colette shares all the intimate details of her sexual escapades with Heath, Camille learns how to tease her new "husband" into a state of arousal that will ensure the sensual release her body is so desperately longing for. Colette, meanwhile, is being seduced by a dark, exotic stranger with a hidden agenda that can bring their world crashing down around them. It's a wickedly dangerous plan that promises deliciously erotic long as they don't get caught.

I've never read Melissa's books but her short story in Naughty, Naughty looks awesome! The exceprt was fun to read especially the fact that Danny finds an angel! Now I really want to find out what happens in the rest of the story!

ddurance November 19, 2009 at 11:43 AM  

I've never read and of Melissa's books but her story, My Lady's Pleasure in the anthology The Harem sounds verrrrrry interesting. I know I'd love to have my own harem of lumberjacks, especially if they look like Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. lol

Hi, Deidre and Jeanette!

Yes,Danny Diablo (former bull rider) and his lady-in-distress angel (we're talking a blonde caught in a snowstorm wearing a lacy nightie and a homemade halo, going to a Christmas party)live out the perfect "snowed in at the cabin" fantasy!

And that Harem anthology? Features historicals, and I chose to make the HEROINE the one with the harem of big, strapping guys. FUN story to write!

Thanks for posting--and good luck as you enter the drawing for SEXUAL SECRETS!

I have never read one of Melissa's books but I definitely will. I think I am going to start with is My Lady's Pleasure. Maybe I will follow that with Satan's Angel, and All Night Long. They all sound like great reads!!!

No need to enter me, babe. I'm dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.

Melissa MacNeal,  November 19, 2009 at 2:37 PM  

Thanks, Susan!

And Marilu, you're on the right track!
Those Black Lace titles--my first 4 forays into erotica--are all in first person. Gives them a little extra ***sizzle*** !

Good to see everyone here!

I previously read your story in the Naughty, Naughty antho. I loved the sexy hero and enjoyed the chemistry he had with the heroine. It was a super fun read! Of course with Christmas coming up I'd love to read Unwrap Me. It looks like a steamy read that would heat me up better than a fireplace.

Melissa MacNeal,  November 19, 2009 at 6:15 PM  

Hi, Joder--and thanks!

That story in UNWRAP ME (I *love* to write Christmas stories!) is a contemporary set in a big beach house on the Outer Banks! A double love story, as Noelle gets her Santa--and her mom with the broken leg hooks up with his uncle! It's also an older woman-younger man *there's a fantasy! ; p

I've yet to read any of Ms.MacNeal's work; however, I would like to begin with Evil's Niece, the story line sounds dramatic and engaging.

ONLY WITH A COWBOY, "Getting Lucky" — I just have sweet spot for sexy cowboys! And I ready like re-union stories.

Eva S November 20, 2009 at 3:30 AM  

Congrats on the release, this book sounds very interesting!
I've read the Captain's Courtesan from the anthology The Pleasure of His Bed, loved it and I'm going to find some more books! Especially the historicals, My Lady's Pleasure and Demon's Dare are on my wishlist.

Melissa MacNeal,  November 20, 2009 at 12:27 PM  

TGIF to all!

Yes, Eva, I am SO happy to be writing historical erotica can just be freer with it! Took some convincing for my Aphrodisia editor to agree, so I hope SECRETS does well and proves our point to him!

DEMON'S DARE is another of those first-person narrators where the action/descriptions really get up-close and personal--and Enyl, EVIL'S NIECE is set in New Orleans! A fascinating city with lots of secrets!

Thanks to everyone for playing along here!

flchen1 November 21, 2009 at 8:37 PM  

I really enjoyed Melissa's stories in Unwrap Me and The Harem! I especially enjoyed the premise of My Lady's Pleasure and what a clever heroine Ophelia was! Her other Aphrodisia anthologies are still on my WL--Naughty, Naughty; Only With a Cowboy; The Pleasure of His Bed; and Tempted by a Cowboy!

Congrats on Sexual Secrets, Melissa--I loved the excerpts!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
