Guest Excerpt: Emily Murdoch’s Lost with a Lord




Want to explore sizzling encounters in Regency England? Romance author Emily Murdoch has just launched her campaign for new series Ravishing Regencies, and this exclusive excerpt from the first book in the series, Lost with a Lord, is for this blog’s eyes only. Enjoy!

After accidentally meeting as they wander into a riot on the dockyards of London, Lord George Northmere and Miss Florence Capria take refuge in an abandoned room – and try to ignore the growing passion rising between them . . .

“You saved me,” George said, his voice unsteady. “When I was lost, you found me.”
Florence whetted her lips as she stared up at him, warmth flowing through her body like a sun and parts of her pulsing like the last time they had made love. “I thought I was the one who was lost.”
In a swift movement, he was above her, but not overwhelming or heavy. Resting on his arms, he caressed her hair, tangling his fingers in it – and then loosening them so they can dance closer, and closer to her collarbone, and then lower, until she was closing her eyes and arching her back once more in the hope he would eventually reach his goal.
When he grazed past her nipple through her gown, she could not help but cry out quietly. 
“We were both lost then,” came his husky voice, and he lowered himself gently so she could feel the strength of him, the hardness of his body as it longed for her just as she longed for him. “But neither of us are lost anymore.”
“I never want to be again,” Florence gasped, her eyelashes fluttering as that same hand moved down her body, and flickered up her skirt to move beneath. “I never want to be without you again.”
His crushing kiss stopped her mouth, and she responded eagerly, her hands clutching at him, drawing him closer, bringing him down to her. It was impossible not to moan as his hand reached her hips, lifting her, grasping her, and then caressing her once more, the medley of brusque and soft building in a rhythm that made her legs curl around him, keeping him close.
Florence had no idea how he managed it, but in a swift motion her gown was untied, and he wrenched it from her body like a man possessed.
“I have to have you,” he moaned in her ear as his fingers stroked past her breast. 
She quivered at his touch and tried to reply, but she had no words, there were no words for this sort of pleasure. Frantic fingers moved to his shirt, but instead of trying each button she wrenched it off, sighing with unadulterated pleasure at the sight of him, at the feel of him as he kissed her once more.
Wave upon wave of sensuality was washing over her now, and Florence could not keep track, his hands and fingers moved so rapidly and so gently and then so strong on her body she thought she could not bear any more – and of course, she must.
She was naked, and so was he, and they were entangled in the bedding and she barely knew where she ended and Lord George Northmere began, and what did it matter because they were of one soul anyway.
“I love you,” she gasped, “please – please, George, this pressure, I cannot stand it – ”
George shuddered as he dropped his mouth to her breast and she cried out, and she did not care who heard her because this was torture, sweet torture, and it had to end and it could never end –

Vampire Menage... Preorder for $0.99

True Companions is coming your way just in time for Valentine's Day! PREORDER FOR $0.99!



A few months ago my vampire novella, True Companions, was part of a Halloween Anthology. If you didn't get a chance to read it back then it will be available on it's own on February 12, 2018. A steamy, sexy, vamp tale with double the vampires. Cassie is a lucky woman.



Can two destined souls open their hearts and their bed to a third?

Vampires Maxim Avery and Grant Bellow have been lovers for a century. Companions in the truest sense. While attending an auction where a human woman offers herself to the highest vampire bidder, Grant inadvertently connects with her from across the room. Their interaction so powerful that Maxim has no choice but to secure the human for his soulmate. He’d do anything for him, but at what cost?

Cassie Kelly survived years of being a product of foster care never fitting in anywhere. After aging out of the system, she falls on hard times. At twenty-three, she finds herself broke, uneducated and homeless. The auction house was supposed to be her saving grace, and things were looking up when not one, but two sexy, charismatic vampires take her home. She quickly realizes her new arrangement may not be what she expected. She’s more of an intrusion or so it would seem. 

Cassie wonders if this situation will be like all the other homes she tried when she was a kid. Another place where she doesn’t belong. Grant falls hard for her, realizing she is his human. But how will that work when he’s already found his mate in Maxim? 



Prologue

As October came to a close the nights grew colder in Savannah. The shelters were filling faster. Not that Cassie Kelly wanted to spend the night in any of them. What choice did she have? With no money or family her options were limited. She was used to getting by on her own, but lately she’d been dealt a harder hand than usual. Losing her job and the room she’d been renting in a matter of weeks were taking a toll on her. She was hungry. But not as hungry as them...

She pulled her hoodie up and shoved her hands in her pockets. The dark, wooded area known as Dead Way, just beneath the dimly lit bridge frightened her, but those who spent their time under the old bridge scared her more. Creatures of the night, immortals, bloodsuckers or just plain old vampires. Society had become used to them. Most vamps kept to themselves. Most humans chose to believe that such types were myths, urban legends, but others embraced their presence. Cassie had always been indifferent to them. She’d never seen one before. Growing up in the foster system, she heard stories of vampires taking kids in. Getting them off the streets and providing them an alternative to the dead end lives most of them faced. She’d never been fortunate enough to have been adopted by either a human or a vampire, so she never cared one way or the other if they had existed. She aged out of the system five years before and hit the streets, surviving, scraping to get by and hoping things would get better. They hadn’t.

As she slowly made her way down the dirt covered path, muffled voices spoke beyond the mist. One time, she told herself. She would try this one time. Vampires needed humans to survive and her blood was just as good as the next. Why shouldn’t she sell it? A chill prickled down her spine when two shadowy figures appeared in the distance.

Just this one time...

My readers have called this my HOTTEST book to date. Will you agree?


*GET THIS BOOK NOW FOR THE DISCOUNTED  PRICE OF 99 CENTS - OFFER VALID ONLY FOR A LIMITED TIME* 

Desire unlocks the door to a new world, but she never expected to find him on the other side. 


Julian Anders has a way of making women drop to their knees. He's fierce, domineering, and knows what he wants in the bedroom. He craves total submission. His busy life doesn't allow him the luxury of traditional dating. He doesn't want it and doesn't need it. He makes no apologies until Kayla Quinn, his best friend's younger sister, shows up at the exclusive club where he finds his companions. 

Kayla has been unsuccessful in love and is tired of waiting for the one. When a friend introduces her to an upscale club that caters in matchmaking without the commitment, she decides to try it. She requests a mature, dominant man, but she never bargained for what happens next. 

Julian is enraged to find Kayla interested in men like him. Men who have no desire to commit. She's not the club's typical client. He's known her for years but stayed away despite his strong attraction to her. He decides the only way to save her from a potential disaster is to pursue her himself. Can she handle his darker side? The one she never knew existed? Perhaps he's finally met his match…both in and out of the bedroom.

ADULT CONTENT

“It’s not your apology I’m seeking right now.” Julian held out his hand and motioned toward the floor. “It’s your submission I want.”

She tucked her hair behind her ear. Another nervous tic.

“Give me a color,” he stated, knowing she could say red and end this right now. “Green.” She got on her knees. “Green.”


He reached down and tilted her chin, his eyes locked with hers. “Punishing you isn’t

something I wanted to do this soon.” “Punishing me?”

“What do you think we’re doing in here?”

“I thought you were going to let me go.”


“What? Why would you...” He hadn’t done a very good job of explaining the rules. “No, that’s the last thing I want to do.”


“Oh.” Her shoulders relaxed. “Okay.”


Wait? She’s relieved I’m punishing her?


“You made a mistake, and it’s my responsibility to make sure you don’t do it again.” He

ran his fingers through her hair, getting swept up in the way she responded to him. She sank into his touch, trusted his words.

“I deserve it.”

“You have the power to stop this. I can’t have your submission if you don’t give it to me.”

“It’s yours.”

How did I get to be such a lucky bastard?

“I haven’t given you many rules to follow, but I was very specific with one.” He tangled her hair in his hand, keeping her face steady. “You chose to break that rule.”

“I’m sorry.”

“That may be so, but I need to make sure you understand who’s in charge.” He tightened his hold on her hair. “When I deliver a punishment, it’s swift. I won’t do it out of anger, and I will never give you more than you can handle. Can you trust me to do that?”

She nodded.

“I’m going to take you across my knee.”


“Spank me?”


“Yes,” he confirmed. “Spanking can be highly erotic for both the giver and the receiver. I

have ways to make a good spanking very sensual for you. Tonight won’t be one of those times. When I’m done spanking you, I’m going to fuck you.” Her breathing became more erratic with each word he spoke. “Hard.”

She squirmed under his hold.

“It will be about my pleasure tonight. I’ll take you fast, with no regard for your release. Do you understand?”

“Yes.” Her lips trembled, and disappointment filled her eyes. He wondered if she was disappointed that she had let him down or that she wouldn’t be climaxing.

“Come to me.” He extended his hand. “Across my lap.” He tugged her up and tossed her over his knees. “I’m going to strike you five times. You will not vocalize. There’s no need to alert anyone on the other side of the door as to what we’re doing in here.”

He continued to watch her, setting his palm on her back to gauge her breathing and make sure she was okay with what they were doing. She didn’t appear rattled. She was still and quiet.

“Give me a color.” Part of him wanted her to say red. He’d skip the spanking and move right to the fucking. That would probably be enough punishment for one night.

“Green,” she said. “I’m still at green.”

Brave girl.

“Very well.” He yanked her dress over her hips, exposing her black thong. “Coming into my club, when you know you shouldn’t, wearing a thong? Did you honestly think that was a good idea?” He lifted his hand and smacked it across her creamy, white cheeks. His cock hardened when his hand connected with her flesh.

“Oh!” she squealed.

“You’re not vocalizing, remember?” He brought his hand across her ass again, the sting on his palm more prominent than the first time.

“Sorry,” she whispered.

“Did you think I wouldn’t find out you were here?” Another swift slap. “It may have been a coincidence that I bumped into you getting off that elevator, but this is my territory. I would have found out.” He struck her a fourth time, not as harsh, smoothing his hand over her reddening cheeks. “Can you handle one more?”

“Yes,” she moaned. “Please...”

Striking her one last time, he rested his hand on her backside. “Stand up and face the windows. We’re going to make use of that view you find so irresistible.”

She moved off his lap and scrambled to get to the windows.

“Now you’re learning to obey me.” He stood behind her, much like the last time they were in this room, but this time she was his, and he planned to show her what that meant.

“Leave your hands here.” He took her wrists and pressed her palms to the cool glass. “Don’t move.” Lifting up her dress, he rested the skirt on her hips. “We’re too high up for anyone to see what we’re doing. The windows are tinted, so the building across from us can’t see in either.”

He hooked his thumbs in her thong and tugged it down her legs, leaving it wrapped around her ankles. Taking a step back, he took in her stance. Beautiful. When he inched closer, she inhaled a sharp breath. Unbuckling his belt, he dropped his pants and boxers to his feet.
As he gripped her waist in his hands, he lowered his lips to her ear. “This is going to be quick.”

“Okay,” she whispered.

“This is part of your punishment.” He took his cock in his hand and positioned it at her slick entrance. “The spanking was a warm-up.” He thrust inside her, pressing her into the window. “You’re here for my pleasure, and mine only.”
