-The Deadly Vixens
I just want to thank The Deadly Vixens for having me today Let me introduce myself to ya'll here.
I write erotic romance as E. Jamie and work as a freelance writer as well. I've published two erotica shorts with Amira Press 'To Love A Knight' and 'Forbidden' and a steamy outlaw western erotica novella called 'Redemption'. I'm working on a contemporary erotic romance called 'Till Death Do Us Part' that I hope to submit by the end of this month.I've been writing since I was eleven years old and for a while I was straddling the line between writing and acting until I decided writing was less difficult on my nerves...though not on my sanity! Big distinction there.
I took the insane leap last year and left a horrible job to follow my dream of being a writer. I was lucky that I didn't have a family to support but in the same vein, I had no one to lean on if things went bust. I had already been taking on some freelance writing gigs so that helped a lot in that I already had my metaphorical foot in the door. It was frightening but there was something in me that told me this path, writing, was the path I was meant to take. I think a lot of writers hear that voice. Some can answer it at the time, some must wait but I urge you to answer it.
When I did, it was like things started coming together. One of my freelance gigs turned into a regular client and merged with a dating mega site and thathas allowed me to fulfill my dream of writing full time. I'm a big believer in perserverance meeting luck, leading to opportunity.
Without having to juggle an outside job, I have time to focus on my real love: writing romance. With the successeswith Amira and now this, it has been a wonderful year to say the least.My favorite genres to read are historicals and myfavorite paranormal genre is time travel. Needless to say that one of myfavorite series is Diana Gabaldon's Jamie/Claire time travel romance series.Another series I read every year is Paullina Simon'sTatiana/Alexander series. I also enjoy reading Karen Marie Moning, KinleyMacGregor, Julia Quinn, Victoria Alexander, Lisa Kleypas and many many manymore!
I thought I'd share a small excerpt (adult content ahead) from my current release: Redemption: Now Available from Amira Press!:
On the run from a murderous uncle, Katie married outlaw Ben Cready the day before he was supposed to hang. They shared one night of explosive passion and for six months, she'd believed herself a widow. Now Ben is back to claim what's his, and that includes the sweet bride he'd never been able to forget.

Here's a wee peek:
The first time she’d lain in this bed, it had smelled like him. Ben had told her it had been his mother’s house, a small cottage hidden in the mountains. The perfect hideout for Ben Cready and his gang. The perfect place for Katie to disappear.
Katie had lain there, staring up at the wooden beams above and closed her eyes, letting his warm, musky scent transport her back to the night before when he’d moved over her, doing things to her that had made her body greedy, open, wet and wanting things she had no understanding of.
And oh he’d given. He’d given hard and deep, plunging his cock into her again and again, but she could feel the restraint there in his muscles, saw it in his face.
He had held back, for her. It made Katie want it all the more. Want him.
Playing that night over in her mind, Katie had stared up at the ceiling, feeling her most intimate place grow damp. She reached down tentatively under her night gown and jumped at the first touch. She’d let her eyes drift closed and remembered the heavy warmth of his body and his strong, rough fingers stroking her gently, then harder as her passion grew. Katie followed his movements, trying to mimic them with her own fingers. She pushed her fingers into her body. Surely it wasn’t shameful now that she was a married woman.
They weren’t the same as his cock. There wasn’t that deep full thick feeling of being possessed, claimed, taken. He moved slowly, gently with her and Katie realized with a burst of shame that she had bitten into his shoulder once. The memory of his cock hitting a particularly sweet spot made her whimper and gush a little. The broad tanned muscle of his shoulder was there, beckoning her mouth and Katie had only meant to run her lips along the tight skin, but then he’d angled his hips and hit that sweet spot and the sweet burst of sensation had been too much to bear and she’d sunk her teeth into the muscle. He’d groaned above her, pumping a little bit harder.
Reliving that moment, Katie had angled her fingers trying to mimic the movement and while the sensation wasn’t quite the same, Katie had bit into her pillow as she felt the funny climbing sensation begin to tug deep in her belly.
With her other hand, she’d tried to copy how he had stroked that swollen bundle of nerves right above her opening. Here the sensations grew sharper and Katie barely had time to breathe before her body arched upwards, the heels of her feet digging into the mattress and the intense feeling of release seemed to explode through her blood.
"What was that?" she had asked him when it first happened.
"You came, honey," he hissed through his teeth as he pushed his cock into her.
‘Came’. Such a simple unassuming word to describe the most exquisite feeling Katie had ever experienced.
