Elodie Parkes Shares Her #Erotic #Romance #Newrelease!

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm so happy to welcome erotic romance author Elodie Parkes to the Divas today. She's here to tell us about her new release and to share some news about a giveaway she's offering. Welcome, Elodie!

Hi Nona,

Thank you for inviting me to your fabulous blog to celebrate the release of my erotic romance, The Old Star.

The love story has paranormal threads, a little mystery and magic, it’s erotic and I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I loved writing it.

The idea came to me when I was working. Sometimes in my job I have to travel to places where an antique has been offered for sale to the place I work. I had to go look at a chaise longue that was in a semi derelict house. The place was going to be demolished and so I was to buy the item, get it loaded in the truck and bring it back to the store. The guy selling it was just lovely.

Sometimes I will notice a guy whose looks help me create a "Swoon" worthy man in my stories, but usually he just happens. It’s like a magic trick, as soon as I know his name he appears and even I fall in love with him. Sometimes and I swear this is the truth, he says and does things and I have no idea where it comes from. Later I will remember and it will make me smile. For instance, I love Owen who is my lead male in The Old Star, but a character nicknamed Ash from my last release, The Winter Girl, I totally love him, he’s such a dude, and such fun.

In real life, I’m greedy I like the guy in a whole package…you know the toned, muscular body, smooth skin, lovely eyes, blue or some other light color. Hair can be long, short, dark, light, as long as it’s clean. I do really like the shape of the hips and muscles of a good looking guy that go into a V shape and disappear into their jeans. Sigh… I like intelligence too…

Before I forget why I am here visiting your blog, here’s the blurb for the new release erotic romance, The Old Star:

She was looking for new office space...but it found her…what’s hidden in this spooky place?

Waiting on a street unknown to her is a house. Old and left to fade away the house looks shabby against its neighbors. The whole row of houses are now offices and Cathy sees a ‘for let sign’ outside the place. Something draws her to the house. Someone watches from the third floor window.

Cathy applies to rent the building to expand her dating agency business. As she begins to make it ready, the house reveals its secrets.

Erotic romance, with a twist of paranormal, set in contemporary England this story will haunt you.

Here’s an excerpt, 18+ R rated

She pulled at his T-shirt and he helped her take it off. Cathy’s eyes darkened as she ran her hands along his muscled chest and kissed down his chest to his stomach. His low-rise jeans showed the shape of his lean hips and a thin line of hair going down his stomach. She looked up into his eyes as she unzipped his jeans and pulled them down to his ankles. She kissed and licked down his stomach and then along his cock and saw it start to harden.
She hadn’t noticed before, but he was wearing slide on shoes with no socks, and now she got him to step out of his clothes and shoes, until he was naked before her. His erection was full now and she looked into his eyes as she kissed him and took hold of his cock.
Owen groaned. “Take off your clothes, now, Cathy.” He stopped her kissing him. “No more kisses until you’re naked. I want you naked.”
His words made her throb with pleasure between her legs and her nipples hardened. He took her T-shirt off and then her bra and dropped them gently to the floor. She unzipped her jeans and began to push them down. Owen knelt and pulled them down to her ankles. He put his fingers into the side of her panties and then kissed her stomach before he took hold of the front with his teeth and pulled them down slowly, his fingers sliding down her thighs and his lips brushing against her until she was moving her hips wanting his mouth on her clit.
Cathy closed her eyes and let the feelings flow over her. She wanted his tongue inside her, his fingers too, she wanted to suck his cock until he groaned and thrust into her. The need for sex had never been so urgent and so intense.
