Welcome Sloane Taylor!

Today I'm delighted to welcome my old friend Sloane Taylor to the party. If you like a bit of humour with your hot, sexy heroes, Sloane's your woman :). Welcome, Sloane!

Time to Say Goodbye

Authors write great prose we remember long after the book has been set on a shelf. Songwriters express the trauma with meaningful lyrics we hum for months, even years. Saying goodbye is a constant in our lives. Sometimes the end is coupled with sadness and pain. Other times it’s a euphoric feeling because the stress is gone.

It’s inevitable there will be such a moment for us all and it seems to happen when least expected. Lovers part, friendships fade, our children move on, and family members leave us. Yet we hang on, not wanting to let go

Is it easier when you cut the tie? It is for me.

CZECH MATE was my tenth book and the hardest to let go. My heart still aches for less than handsome, but hot as hell, Dragan with his deep hidden secrets as he oversees his 5-Star hotel in Prague. Of course, Chicagoan Lacey and her sassy mouth have a special place in my heart. We worked hard to overcome the low-priced hooker image she conveyed. It almost killed me when we had to give up her hot pink feather boa. She doesn’t know this, but I’ve kept it as a souvenir and love to tease Studs with it. That boa is little something I need to remember my girl and her antics. How I miss Dragan and Lacey with all their conflict and tension while they dealt with a sexual attraction neither could deny over their five day sex fest.

But do they ever think of me? Do they care that I miss them? Want them to at least acknowledge I was once a part of their lives? Probably not now that they’re out into the world, out amongst readers who laugh, cry, and savor their most intimate sexual details as their story unfolds. I am forgotten, deleted from their minds faster than a used condom.

Of the fourteen books I’ve written and had published, not one of my babies, my children I slaved to create and satisfy, ever thanked me.

But I really can’t complain. Other characters have paid attention to me and my hard work. Recently, I receive an email from a nice lady who said God had sent me to her to teach her better sex techniques. Hmm, but maybe I’m confusing her with the Foreign Princess who emailed that her royal family had perished and she needed my help. All I had to do was give her my bank account number along with a few other pertinent facts and she would deposit thousands of dollars in my account so she could safely come to America. Of course she would split the funds with me for making it all possible.

What could I say to these two people I couldn’t say to the sexy characters who stole my heart and favorite positions? For once it was easy. Goodbye!

Sweet as Honey…Hotter than Hell


Life isn't easy for aspiring interior designer Lacey Blake when she finds herself stranded in Prague dressed like a dolled up hooker for her fetish minded, soon to be ex, boyfriend.  The cash-strapped American traveler, boasting a feather boa and stilettos that would make a dominatrix cry, is saved by an intriguing offer proposed by a staid giant in a sleek Armani suit.  It doesn’t take long to convince herself there’s nothing like a sex-fest to get the most out of a free vacation.

Dragan Petrovic is determined his 5-star hotel will retain its unblemished reputation and no prostitute will kickoff her career in his lobby.  But one look into her eyes and he knows there is more to her than a micro mini and a push up bra.  The urge to protect her drives him to madness when he suggests an unusual scheme that stirs up deep desires and alters their lives forever. 
Lacey is hot and ready for action when she accepts Dragon’s offer, and to relieve the sexual tension between them, takes the matter in hand…


...Lacey lifted out a teetering stack of silky looking items. Lingerie? A light blue bra encased with what must be rhinestones slid to the floor, quickly followed by the matching lacey bikini panties.

“What are these?” Dragan knelt next to her, blood pounding through his veins as he captured the delicate cloth in his hands.

“My undies.” She continued to rummage, spilling more silken items onto the carpet.

He lifted an eyebrow. “Uncomfortable?”

“Surprisingly, no.” She giggled, her creamy skin taking on a rosy glow as she dipped her head lower to the suitcase. “Damn it, where is it?”

A vision of her dressed only in the intimate garments and those sexy high heels strapped to her ankles flooded his mind, sending jolts of electricity south.

His stiff cock, which seemed to be its normal posture in her presence, swelled larger as she walked toward him, its throbbing head anxious to be deep inside her, wrapped in her wet heat. The tips of her hard nipples shoved against the silky fabric of her bra, their outline a beacon to his aching member. His fingers itched to caress the soft mounds, rising over the miniscule rhinestone-studded cups, and tongue her hard nipples. He could almost feel the erotic sensation when he released them, mounted her and slid his cock between their firm flesh.

She stepped closer, drawing his attention lower to her shapely hips. Mesmerized, he watched them sway, the movement seductive, sensual, compelling him to taste her.

The clear gems sprinkled across her sheer panties twinkled in the dim light. He licked his dry lips. The burning desire to kiss the lacey vee at the apex of her thighs, suckle her clit through the thin material and graze a finger along her folds brought sweat to his brow.

She slid the bra straps down her shoulders. His heart thudded, banging against his ribcage. He stood…

“Earth to Vic. Come in, Vic.” A hand shook his shoulder, returning him to the present. “Um, you might want to let go, big time.”

He glanced down at his hands, wadding her undergarments into a knot. Kersati. Fuck, what the hell could he say to her and not appear to be an old lecher? “I apologize. My mind must have taken a short vacation.”

She laughed. “Yeah, right. Don’t even think I’ll buy that one, big guy.”

Dragan pursed his lips, not sure how to determine the best way to measure Lacey’s shapely body without appearing to molest her, especially after making a fool of himself over her delicate underwear. He did not trust himself to hold back, and not wrap her in his arms and kiss her until she begged him to make love to her.
Kersati, how the hell could he have become so affected by this young woman in a matter of an hour? He looked at her, his hands fisted tight at his sides.

“Do you have a tape measure?”

He shook his head, not trusting the right words to travel past his lips.

A grin spread across her face and carried to her bright hazel eyes, eyes that seemed to see deep into his soul.
“Then how do you plan to do this? String? Belt?” Her voice echoed the humor radiating from her face. “Silk scarves?”

He looked at his raised hands, the fingers spread wide as if he were testing melons in the market. Disgusted by his absurd action, he jammed them into his trouser pockets.

“It’s not going to happen if you don’t make it happen.” She reached for his wrists. When he dug them deeper into his pockets, she laughed. Kersati, his balls were drawn so tight they hurt...

(A few words from Sloane about her books and her contest!)

Hi Marie,

Thanks for having me out today. It’s a pleasure to be here and meet your friends.

For those of you who don't know me, I’m a sensual woman who believes humor and 

My stories are set in Europe where the men are all male and the North American women they encounter are both feminine and strong. As a true romantic, my women bring more than lust to their men’s lives.

I was born and raised in Chicago. Studly, my non-husband and mate for life, and I split our time between a home in Illinois and a weekend cottage on the back roads of Indiana…or you can catch up with me as I travel though Europe, researching new material.

You can learn more about me and my work on my website http://sloanetaylor.com/ . I also invite you to join my Facebook fan page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sloane-Taylor/130811866964428 .

Now let's have a little fun today with two easy contests.

The question is how many books do I currently have published? You can find the answer on this blog. The prize is a download of FRENCH TART.

For the second contest, please tell me how hot you like your books. Do you want to be titillated, have your thighs squeezed tight, or somewhere in between? This prize is a download of FINNISH FANTASIES.

Good luck and thank you for playing!


Sloane's contest will close at midnight tonight, and her winner will be announced tomorrow morning on this thread.


  1. Love the excerpt, Sloane :). Tell us, where is your next book going to be set? And do you base your heroes on sexy hunks of the same nationality that you've encountered in your travels?


  2. Glad you liked it, Marie, and thank you again for having me out. Danish Delights is my current WIP. I guess you can tell by the title it's set in Denmark.:) Absolutely my heroes are based on men I've met. Most have been in Europe, but to keep me focused, there's also a whole lot of Studs thrown in. A girl can only fantasize so much without getting into trouble. lol

  3. Whew! The title of this blog scared me. Glad it's only good bye to these characters and not to more hot characters and even hotter situations in future books. : )

    Anna T.S./Holy

  4. LOL, Anna, I had the same reaction when I first saw it. Like you, I'm glad it's only the characters and not Sloane herself!

    Sloane, you know how to grab attention! :)


  5. Hi Sloane,

    Like the others you made me nervous, I though "No, Sloane can't stop writing, what will I do without my fix." Love your books. As for how hot, I like from sexy to burn the pages as I'm reading. Waiting for your next book.

    The other Marie.

    Marie Tuhart

  6. Nice, Nice Blog, Sloane! Glad to hear you're back and moving on from your illness and computer woes. That's never easy, but you're doing a great job of it! XOXO Beth

  7. Sorry to scare you, Holy!! But you know this old hussy isn't going to give up so easily.:)

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. Thanks, Anne, and a huge THANKS for posting.:)

  10. Hey, Marie! I agree on "the burn the pages" which is why I love your books!!

  11. Hello, dear Beth! Great to hear from you and thanks for all your support.:)

  12. Hi Sloane!!

    Your books are great!!!!

    I love my stories to be nice and hot...toasty...so that I need to grab my man....hehe!!!

    in Germany

  13. Thank you, Val, I've always appreciated your good opinion.:)Grab away, sweet lady, that's the highest compliment you can ever give an erotica author.

  14. Darn blogger is screwing with me. Let's try this again.

    So to recap what I lost: I like everyone else was terrified that you were leaving us but...phew...ain't happening.

    The hotter the better is how this girl roles.

    And now I'm going to try this again.

  15. SUCCESS, Jenna!! You've come through like a champ. I agree with your opinion and it shines through in your thigh clenching books.:)

  16. Great blog post! Answer to question one: fourteen. And to question two: it is not so much the heat level but how well it integrates into the other elements of the book and what kind of heat. I like descriptions of sensations more than graphic descriptions of what is happening.


  17. Hi Carol, thanks for coming out today. Congratulations! You're right on question one. Sensations are important because without them we're just reading porn.

  18. #1 14 books (congrats that's amazing!)
    #2 I like both types of books depending on my mood. I like to mix it up!

  19. Dragan and Lacey were definitely two of my faves. It's hard to let the characters go sometimes. And no, they never think of us poor writers when they ride off into the sunset in their hot sports cars. :) I'm so happy you're back Sloane, it's been difficult with no new European hunks from you. ;)

  20. Hi Jen, congrats on the correct answer for question one! And thanks for the compliment. Mixing it up is giving me all kinds of ideas for future books.:)

  21. Hey Melissa! Glad to see you and happy you enjoyed Dragan and Lacey. Don't you think all those ungrateful characters we've given life deserve a good spanking? :)

  22. Interesting comments! Thanks all, for joining the party!

    And Sloane, a big thank to you for being such a wonderful guest yesterday!

    I'll be back in a few minutes with Sloane's winners...

  23. And here are Slone'slucky winners!

  27. Like many who commented the Goodbye in the title scared me, but I know my Sloane and she never gives up - even though I'm very, very late with this comment. Glad to have you back in the sexual mix, Girl
