Everything He Wants and So Close

Image by Almonroth
When I write, I like to write stories of second chances. Everyone has those missed connections and false starts that we wonder about. What might have happened if I turned left instead of right or jumped instead of running away? I have.
Trace and Jeremy have, too. They had a one-time meeting and never forgot about each other. Enter Madame Eve. She’s known for working miracles. All they want is to get past the bad decisions they’ve made before meeting and find a future that could happen together.
Trace is an air traffic controller. He needs order and all the facts. He hasn’t been able to wrap his mind around the meeting with Jeremy. They clicked and yet, they never quite found each other again. He’s hoping Madame Eve is the right choice for finding his forever.
Jeremy, an artist, likes the flourish of color and a good story. He’s also hot for Trace. He’s got a lot of baggage in his past and it’s not the easiest to deal with. If he can heal, he can move forward. If Trace factors into that healing, then even better.
Want to know if these two men find a happily ever after together? Then you’ll have to read Everything He Wants. J
Here’s a little more about the book:


Everything He Wants
A 1Night Stand Story from Decadent Publishing
M/M, Anal Sex
A Short Story Available now!

Trace has almost everything he wants—a great job and a well-ordered life, but he’s ready for more—the right guy to share it with. A chance meeting after a hockey game with the man of his dreams spurs him on to turn to the one source he knows will help him out—Madame Eve’s 1Night Stand service.
Jeremy can’t forget the difficult childhood and subsequent bad decisions he made while trying to forget it. He wants the gorgeous air traffic controller, but he’s afraid his past will get in the way like it always does. If all Madame Eve can give them is one night…he’ll take it.
With Eve’s help, can the men forge the relationship they both want, or will they crash and burn?


And a hot excerpt...because I can!

Jeremy sat in the back seat of the cab and swayed forward as it came to a quick stop opposite Club Ramrod. What a crazy name for a club. Then again, what a crazy place to meet his date. He checked the messages on his phone one more time. Sure enough, the same email from Madame Eve popped up.
Your date awaits you at Club Ramrod, located next to the Mason Players Club Hotel. Look for yellow by the bar and you will find your heart’s delight. Tell the bouncer Eve sent you.
He sighed and paid the driver with a shaky hand. His mind wouldn’t stop racing. What the hell did I get myself into? Sure, the club scene worked for him, but he hated the grind. Hated the clawing bodies and hangers-on. Crossing the street, he took his place in line. Maybe no one would recognize him. Finally reaching the club entrance, he dropped Madame Eve’s name to the bouncer.
The hulking man nodded and shuffled him to the bar. “Don’t cause a fight.”
Don’t cause a fight? Did he look like the type to cause trouble? Well, I did change my hair from green to blue tips. Jeremy snorted. Whatever. He scanned the crowd in the massive black and white bar. Men talked and laughed, some cuddled each other or sat on each other’s laps. At the far end, he spotted a flash of yellow. His heart pounded faster and his mouth went bone-dry.
“No way,” he murmured, nibbling on his lip piercing.
Trace Robeson, the man who featured in every one of his naughty fantasies, clutched a beer and hooked his thumb in his jeans front pocket. The man oozed classy sex. A faded T-shirt cradled his body like a second skin, giving teasing glimpses at the chiseled flesh underneath. His ripped jeans cupped and outlined his package and showed off his natural tan to a T.
Jeremy wobbled on his feet and thanked the gods, or Madame Eve, or whoever, for granting him his wish, and strode across the club. Making eye contact with Trace, he grinned.
“Hey, man. Good seeing you here.” Trace offered his hand.
“Yeah. It’s nice to see a friendly face.” Jeremy gestured the bartender for a beer. “I’m here to meet my destiny.”
“Are you....” Trace didn’t finish.
“Your date?” Jeremy replied. “I’m looking for a man in yellow. Don’t see too many others rocking that color, so….” Christ, he sounded so lame.
“I was told my date would find me.” Trace matched his smile. “Want to dance?”

One More Night Can Change Everything

Photo courtesy: Tim Tay
Have you ever wondered about a decision you made in the past? Ever thought, what if? That’s the premise of One More Night. One night to see if the sins of the past can be changed and improved. Jenna and Drake are both wounded souls, but need that little push to find out if they can overcome what happened and move forward.
Who is Jenna? Who is Drake? Jenna is a simple girl trying to find her way in the world. She’s been through some bumps along the way and never quite learned to deal with the repercussions of her decisions. She comes into the story a tad immature, but it’s the journey that can help her heal. Will she heal?
What about Drake? He’s a pilot who can’t fly. A freak accident in one of his beloved planes injured his leg and made it almost impossible for him to fly. He’s going to get back into the plane and the friendly skies. Will he be able the make the turn and embrace his future, especially if it means getting Jenna back in his arms?
You’ll have to read One More Night and find out what happens next. J

One More Night
a 1Night Stand story by Wendi Zwaduk
Contemporary, Short Story, M/F, Anal Sex
From Decadent Publishing

Fear can blind. Will love show the way in the dark? All it takes is one more night...
Three years ago, Jenna ran away from what should have been the best night of her life. Letting her fear and shame get in the way of true happiness has haunted her ever since. It’s time to move on and put the past behind her. A date through the 1Night Stand service is the perfect opportunity to start living life again.
 When the love of his life slipped through his fingers, Drake hated to let her go. A near-death accident prevented him from going after her. But after three years of recovery and waiting, he’s ready to take back what’s his, and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her from running again.
Can Madame Eve work a miracle or will love lose out to pride and fear?
Available here:

And now a short excerpt for your enjoyment:

“You bring out the bad girl in me. I forgot how much I liked it.”
If he shoved her panties to the side, she’d let him grope her there in the reception room. He resisted the urge to go too far and moved her dress to repair her modesty. “You’re good at being bad.” With the pads of his fingers, he stroked down the length of her leg and caressed her ankle. The crimson polish on her toes glittered in the fluorescent light. “You always did like bare feet.”
Her voice dropped to the husky purr he hadn’t heard in a long time. “My stilettos pinched my toes. Bare is more comfortable.”
“I’m glad you came back.” The old feelings welled in his brain, reminding him how he hadn’t stopped loving her. Ever. “You aren’t the same girl who walked out of here three years ago. Not really. I want to discover all the ways you’ve grown.”
“You’ve changed, too.” The husky tone of her voice trailed up his spine. Jenna traced the line of his lapel with her finger. “More poetic, less gruff. And you shaved.” For the first time since she’d set foot on the tarmac, she smiled. “I like the changes. They work on you.” She murmured in his ear, “I wouldn’t have stopped you if you kept going.”

La Isla Del Encanto


Hopefully the Spanish title grabbed your attention and now you’re asking, what the hey? My new release, Tropical Paradise, takes place in beautiful Puerto Rico, where the sun, sand, and the sea are in abundance.

As a Latina, I find the island paradise near and dear to my heart. Beautiful men and women grace the island’s beaches every day, soaking up the sun and looking for love. So I decided what better place than this scrumptious backdrop for my 1Night Stand?

Writing Tropical Paradise was fun as I mapped the island in my mind, knowing that I had been there or could pinpoint any of the places. The drive from the airport in San Juan towards the coast, the sun shining brightly and the radio blaring. Every word written was a memory come to life and fueled my desire to tell Leo and Skyler’s story.

What you may find ironic is that out of everyone in my family, I am the least beachy-heat person. My family laughs as they ask, what kind of Puerto Rican are you, since you hate the heat and sand? What can I say- I may be Latina hot and have a Latin temper, but the heat is not my friend! I think is another life I was Eskimo and not Latina.

I am my own oxymoron, but that’s what makes me unique and this chica loves unique. So, how about a contest? Is there something that makes you an oxymoron or very unique? Like me, do you love snow to be measured in feet not inches while maintaining a Latin flair?

Leave a comment and don’t forget your email address so Decadent can send a copy of Tropical Paradise to the winner.

Evelise


Tropical Paradise

Can Madame Eve work her magic one more time? Leo Santos left the one man he loved behind to care for his ailing father. Sky Macy never forgot his one and only that got away. When they meet again on a blind date setup by 1Night Stand, will they go their separate ways or will the sparks reignite the love they never forgot?
   On a secluded beach at the resort Las Casitas Villas in Fajardo, Leo and Sky come face to face after years apart. Passion ignites so hot it threatens to burn them from within. They both will need to open their hearts and learn to trust if they hope to find love during one night of passion in a tropical paradise.

One Night Ride

I’m not an author who uses music when I write. Well, not to the point of having a playlist. But when I wrote One Night Ride, my music of choice was country (as it is with most of what I write). Rather than a playlist, I’ll share my top five country music artists right now!

 Keith Urban – who sings Cop Car, the inspiration for Chad’s story! Stay tuned for more about Chad, you can meet him in One Night Ride.

 Jake Owen – There’s not much by Jake I don’t love. I can’t pick just one song!  Beachin’ is a feel-good summertime song.

Brantley Gilbert – Especially Bottoms Up. It’s a fun song, what can I say!

Eric Church – He’s like Jake, I love everything. One of his more recent releases that I love is The Outsiders.

 Luke Bryan – For one he’s a cutie. J Secondly, gotta love Country Girl (Shake it for Me)

One Night Ride

What Readers are saying:

The story is short, sweet, sexy, and very hot. I want MORE!! –Cathy/Reviewer

A nice, steamy short filled with muscle-bound, denim and boots wearing studs. Alphas on display! – 3 Chicks After Dark

   Brett Colson’s ready to get back into the dating game. Competing in rodeos across the country kept him out of the game, so when he hears about the 1Night Stand service from a friend, he takes a chance. 
   Bull rider Jace Peterson lost his first love over a year before to another man. Hitting his thirtieth birthday, Jace listens to his friends’ concerns; he needs to end his self-imposed dry spell and enlist the help of Madame Eve. 
   Brett and Jace expect nothing more than a satisfying one-night ride. But they’re wrong.

Bunny and the Brigadier

Today I have a special guest, former supermodel Anya Volkov.
Welcome to my hot seat, Anya. Please tell the readers out there a little about yourself.
Thank you for having me. Well, I’ll start with the obvious, that I’m half-Russian. I was born in Russia to an American mother. I started modeling when I was around the age of 15. My most famous photo is the white swimsuit photo from the eighties that made me an overnight celebrity. But all that fame and hard work didn’t stop me from becoming lonely.
Well, that was quite some time ago your famous snapshot came out. That puts you around the age of...?
A lady never discloses her age, Bunny. I think you of all women should know that. *Leans forward* How old did you say you were?
Ah, yes. Well as you said—we shouldn’t disclose our age. You’re a little old to be signing up for a 1Night Stand. Don’t you think?
Quite the contrary, Bunny. I’ve done a lot in the last ten years that people told me I was too old to do. I’ve gone sky diving, sailing around the world, ran with an Army unit, completed a competitive obstacle course and danced until dawn with an extremely hot general. Not to mention, taking him home with me after. *winks* I think  your only limitation is your mind and what barriers you let it put up.
So, you went for a powerful man. You like power?
Um, I didn’t get to pick exactly who. Madame Eve did that and might I add he was perfect. It’s nice to have a man that knows exactly what he wants and goes after it.
So, was he everything you thought he would be?
I’ve never dated a military man. Let’s just say he was full of surprises. More than I could’ve imagined.
I understand you were a spook. How did the general feel about dating a spy.
Excuse me, Bunny. You got this information from whom?
I have my sources.
You do know that there are people out there that might not like your sources. As for dating a spy, no problem, since we work for the same team.
People? *Glances around.*  Are you telling me I’m being watched? You are! Dang it. You could warn a girl. I would have at least had a new manicure and maybe had my hair trimmed. I hope at least if they’re going to stalk me, they’re hot.
So, Bunny. Shouldn’t we move on to the quickies? You like quickies don’t you?
Wait! Who’s doing this interview?
Fifty to life or the death penalty?
What? Nobody told me.... Stop! This is my interview. You’re the one in the hotseat.
Lights on or off during your interrogation?
I’m refuse to answer that question.
Have you ever been arrested before?
I plead the 5th! *eyes the door*
Well, it looks like we’re all out of time. I really have to run. You’re just kidding right, Anya?
Am I?
*Vanishes in a puff of smoke.*
Well, it looks like my host has left me to wrap up on my own. To find out how my date with the general went, pick up the tell all exclusive here: Beauty and the Brigadier.

Cat People

Available HERE

I’m a cat person, always have been. I’ve had both cats and dogs most of my life, but I’ve always had an affinity for the feline species. I love their independence. Owning a cat is slightly more a chore than owning a house plant. And when they want to cuddle then you feel super special for the attention.
Sure, my four dogs all but maul me with their loving excitement when I go outside for a few minutes then come back in. I might as well have taken a trip around the world. I love them for their undying loyalty and enthusiasm, but they also look completely put out when I’m not nearly as excited to see them. (Guys, seriously, I took the garbage out, CALM DOWN.)  Meanwhile, the cats eye me curiously, wondering if I’ve brought anything back of interest. If not, then it’s yawns and back to naps.
This is the type of person I am. Low maintenance and I value my independence.

Are you a dog or cat person? Leave a comment with email and you might win my F/F 1NS release, RescueMe!

Blurb:
When Abigail Winter’s stepsister sets her up with 1Night Stand, she can’t deny she needs a night away from the constant worry. Her cat rescue A Purrfect Home is in danger of closing, and she’s nearly out of options. Her date, Carlita, is gorgeous with soft curves that leave Abigail hungry for a taste. A perfect and passionate distraction for the evening.
Carlita Menedez is thrilled when she first lays eyes on her date, Abigail. Beautiful, and an animal lover, who more perfect for a former veterinarian? Her lithe form proves irresistible, and her kisses incredible. Their chemistry sizzles and when they come together, they find pure bliss in one another’s arms.
But disaster steals their night, and A Purrfect Home may already be lost. Will Carlita be the one person who can help Abigail save everything she’s worked so hard for?

 Excerpt:
Thunder boomed louder, jarring the windows, echoing her pounding heart. Carlita met her gaze and Abigail couldn’t resist reaching out and taking one of her ebony curls, letting the silken texture slip through her fingertips. The simple act did obscene things, a tight ache settled between her thighs. Abigail cupped the other woman’s cheek. “What do you think? Can two strangers like us have a passionate one night affair?”
Carlita’s tongue darted out, moistening her lips, her brown eyes smoldering. A tantalizing tease.
“I think it’s why we’re here, right?”
What an unsatisfying answer. She had to know for sure the other woman felt the same as she did. She stroked her thumb over Carlita’s bottom lip. “Do you want me?”
Carlita looked away and Abigail’s confidence faltered. What if the chemistry was one sided? God, it’d been years since she’d dated, and she’d never been good at reading body signals. To top it off, she was feeling pretty desperate; never a good thing while figuring someone else out. She took a deep breath, ready to back off. Carlita covered her hand with her own before she could pull away and moved the platter with the cheesecake to the nightstand.
“I want you to kiss me, Ab—”
Abigail moved before she could finish the sentence. Carlita’s lips were soft, yielding to the urgency of her kiss. She pulled her forward until Carlita straddled her thighs, the kiss deepening, their tongues meeting in foreplay. She tasted of chocolate, champagne, and desire, a delicious combination, and Abigail couldn’t get enough. Abigail stroked the smooth skin of her exposed back, feeling her muscles moving while Carlita worked the buttons on her blouse. When the other woman palmed Abigail’s breasts through her cotton bra, the heat within her bloodstream turned to liquid fire. She yanked the halter ties to Carlita’s dress, fumbling with the knot.
“Damn it.” The ties wouldn’t give. More than anything she wanted those incredible breasts free to bury her face between them. Live out one of the fantasies she’d been denied all night.
“Oh god, I’m sorry,” Carlita said as grabbed the ties, trying to help. “I didn’t want to fall out. I tightened it into a double knot.”
Abigail gave up and let her work the knot, taking advantage of having free hands.

About Complete Me:

A romance author who needs to love….
Best-selling romance author Claire Ergleston confines her passions to the pages of her books, afraid of being hurt again. When she receives a 1Night Stand date “to give her something to talk about in interviews,” can she let herself be swept away?
A rock star who needs to let go….
The past has a chokehold on former rock star Ty Krause. Instead of killer tunes, he kills time writing passable songs for a British boy band and spends his nights wishing he had the balls to say good-bye. In a last ditch effort to move on, he signs up for 1Night Stand, thinking that a night of no-strings-attached sex will help him break the leash of his past.
From the moment Claire and Ty meet, sparks fly—but can they overcome their pasts or will their potential love story end on a sour note?
