PURPLE PROSE

 

Ebook ISBN: 978-1-61937-728-8
Publisher: Musa Publishing

Forget being creatively blocked. Forget being purple. They just want to survive the process of writing the book!

When she hits the writer's block of all writer's blocks, Lindsey Prince thinks her muse has abandoned her. But she opens her door one day to find a gorgeous new one standing there, "anxious" to help her finish her current project. There's only one problem... her new muse, Zahn, has been turned purple by Calliope, Chief of the Muses, for indulging in Purple Prose. Unfortunately, his fate rests on Lindsey submitting a purple prose free manuscript to her editor. No pressure there.

To make matters worse, Zahn apparently has a powerful and cranky ex-girlfriend who isn't all that thrilled by the growing attraction between Lindsey and Zahn. She'll do anything to stop Lindsey from submitting that manuscript. Anything. Based on the extremely heated "research" she and Zahn have been indulging in, Lindsey knows her sexy IR story will sizzle. She only needs to live through the process of writing it.

No easy task, that.

Night Owl Reviews Top Pick! "I have to say that I absolutely love this book. It has humor, action, jealousy, and a super sexy purple man, so basically it has everything. I highly recommend this book to romance lovers who aren’t afraid of a little humor and some bad (or good) purple prose."

Fallen Angels gives Purple Prose 5 Angels! "I grinned my way through Purple Prose - it truly is a laugh-a-minute read. Hilarious situations, witty dialogue, a parrot that adds his own commentary, and two very likeable lead characters make this a book to remember."
—Maija, Fallen Angel Reviews

You Gotta Read Reviews: "I liked the whole story plot. The characters are believable, and I liked the fast pace of the book. Sam Cheever packed a lot of story in a small amount of pages. Lindsey was honest and hard working. Zahn was hot and a god. The ex-girlfriend was all diva bent on revenge. I really loved Mike the parrot, for reasons not to be divulged here. You have to read it for that information. All in all, good characters, good plot, good happy ending, good read."

Excerpt

When I was seated at my desk, Zahn started to pace behind me. I took a deep breath, pulling thought-feeding air into my lungs, and looked at the page on the screen. I’d been moving along at a good pace, but then I’d gotten stuck. I frowned at the page, struggling to think of a way out of my characters’ current dilemma. Suddenly the air behind me warmed and the yummy scent of man surrounded me. Zahn’s heat pulsed against my back.

I looked up and he looked down. Our eyes met. His mouth opened. My lips parted.

“You know what you need to do next.”

I blinked, focused on his full, soft lips. “What?”

“Sex.”

I gulped. “Sex?”

Zahn nodded, a warm light coming into his brown eyes. “They need to have sex.”

I blinked again. My mind had turned to water. “They do?”

Zahn favored me with a long, slow grin. “They do.”

He reached down and covered one of my hands with his own, and a strange warmth spread through me, starting from my hand and moving to strategic points throughout my body. I gasped as the warmth found my clit and ignited it. Zahn lowered his head so his lips were close to my ear. Very close. Close enough for his tongue to sweep out and slide around the rim and then pull the lobe into his hot mouth…

I shivered.

“Write,” he whispered huskily into my ear.

And I did. My fingers flew over the keyboard, creating heat between my characters that infused me right along with them. As Frank pulled Carol into his hard embrace, Zahn pressed into my back, all male hardness, heat, and sexual musk. As Frank’s lips found Carol’s, Zahn’s soft, sensual mouth trailed up the back of my neck and over to the sensitive spot just behind my ear.

I dropped my head forward, but somehow my fingers never left the keyboard. Frank and Carol’s heated moment never left my mind. My fingers flew and heat built between Frank and Carol as fire built between me and my uber-sexy muse.

Frank slid the straps of Carol’s gauzy camisole off her shoulders, following the silky stroke of fabric with his lips. Zahn’s hands slid slowly up my arms and found the tiny buttons on the front of my blouse. He released them, one by one, deliberately, until the blouse fell open, exposing the lacy bra I was wearing underneath.
My fingers continued to fly on the keyboard, making Frank nibble his way up Carol’s throat. I groaned as Zahn leaned over me and forged a moist, heated trail across my back and shoulders. Carol dropped her head back and cried out as Frank’s hot mouth closed over a silk covered nipple. I bit my lip as Zahn’s big warm hands pulled first one breast and then the other free of the confining lace.

Carol grabbed Frank’s head and held him to her painfully sensitive nipple, her body vibrating with building need. I laid my head against Zahn’s shoulder and shivered as he caressed my stomach and breasts in warm, silken strokes that brought my legs apart under my keyboard and made me rise out of the chair under the growing burn of need.

My bra disappeared along with Carol’s. My nipples hardened and pulsed for Zahn’s hot mouth, just as Carol moaned under Frank’s tender ministrations. I whimpered with need and Zahn responded, turning me in my chair so his hot mouth could claim first one and then the other rigid peak.

I left Carol and Frank to their own devices and immersed myself in Zahn—his touch, his scent, and the feel of his smooth, hard flesh against mine.
