Tears of Crimson

Some Fairy Tales Should Never Be Outgrown


 

 
One down on her luck princess.  A place where fantasies come true.  The adventure begins on Fantasy Isle.

She was barely a woman and selling her innocence to save her mother.  I should run away from this fantasy, but the little princess has made me feel alive for the first time in years.  The desire I felt was forbidden, but that didn't stop me from wanting a taste.  No one knew better than me how to make her first time memorable.  I'd be damned if I'd let them try!

He's the sexy man that would claim my body, and nothing more.   I shouldn't desire him, but from the moment we first meet, I'm already seduced. Making love to fulfill a couple's fantasy to watch, I know this is nothing more than a job for him.  I hope when it's all over I can walk away and forget about the man I gave it all to. 


Kindle Press author Michelle Hughes continues her Fantasy's Bar & Grill Series with the new spin off, Fantasy Isle.  Steamy hot passion, men that make your mouth water, and adventures so sensual you'll be craving a reservation of your own.

I thought I knew where my life was going. Which goes to show that we don’t know anything. I had the perfect life. A husband who loved me, getting the promotion as the head of our cardiopulmonary department, and a life plan that gave me purpose. Then with one fell swoop, everything was destroyed. Finding your sister in bed with the love of your life puts things in a different perspective. Discovering that she’s stealing your dream makes you question every thought you’ve ever had.

I lost everything except my medical career. The one place where my life wasn’t falling apart around me. Until it was. Dr. Eric James was our ER physician, and maybe if I hadn’t had a life plan I’d never have noticed him in the way a woman discovers a man. Maybe I’d never known what passion was before him. I came to him in a moment of weakness, and he mended a part of me I thought was broken forever. Life has a way of screwing up even the best things that have ever happened to you. 

Trauma. When reality crashes into a fantasy, sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath. I knew the right thing to do but giving up when a person’s life was in my hands went against everything I was taught. Love doesn’t follow the right rules. Unlike a medical emergency, there is no plan for survival. What I needed was a prescription for love that wouldn’t destroy the tiny part left of me still fighting to live.

Valentine - Michelle Hughes
 

 
You think you know what love is, even if you've fought against feeling that emotion your entire life. Valentine was my life altering moment. Have you ever wanted something desperately, but knew to have it would destroy everything you were? Lust is a powerful motivator. His passions were dark, and they called to a primitive part of my soul I didn’t know I possessed. He didn’t make love, instead he wanted a woman willing to be claimed, owned, giving her heart, mind, and soul. At least that’s how I saw him. The truth was I didn’t know him at all. I watched him play at a local BDSM club and everything I thought I knew about life changed irrevocably.

Who I was, what he was, none of it mattered. Our eyes met, and it was like the world stopped spinning and for that one moment we were suspended in time. I couldn’t catch my breath and he couldn’t look away. The feeling was so powerful that when my feet would move again, I ran. You think you know what love is. What if everything you thought you knew was a lie? Surrender is a powerful word. Escaping the reality of who you are and giving in to the fantasy? That’s even more terrifying. What would you do?

“Valentine is a full-length standalone novel. No cheating, alpha hero, virgin heroine, billionaire, with elements of romantic suspense. This new romance by Kindle Scout Winner, Michelle Hughes, is a seduction of the mind and will take you on one wild ride.”

Dmitri Valentine is gorgeous, intimidating, cocky and to top it all off, a billionaire. Throw into the equation that he’s dominant, high-handed and believes a woman should fall at his feet to worship his greatness? You’ve got an egomaniac that takes control freak to the next level. 

Grace Parker is nobody’s plaything. She’s never been interested in sex and he’s the last man that should wake up her sexual appetite. When fate throws them together in a twisted game of life or death, all the rules are challenged. It’s a battle of wills between deviant pleasures and self-denial. Or is it?

*This is a stand-alone romance with a twisted HEA. 70,000 words.*

Before Tears of Crimson, there was Rafael.  Fans of The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, and Twilight get ready for the world that will leave your soul longing.

 

Her soul called to me in desperation and in my darkness, I found light once more.  Tempted by her innocence, I vowed not to destroy her even though everything I am demanded she be mine. Her blood, her body, and the call of her soul tormented and delighted my senses. Would I be strong enough to deny fate or could my Cara become another victim of my wickedness?

 

I was cursed to walk through this human world, living on the blood of those I’d once promised to protect.  Cloaked in secrecy, veiled in deceit, our race was the basis for monsters and myth.  Vampire, werewolf, witch, incubus, and other forms of supernatural.  The truth was much darker than they could imagine.  Drawn to the one thing we no longer possessed, purity, we had the power to destroy them all.

 

My sweet beautiful human wanted me to be her salvation.  If she only knew I was death waiting to consume all she offered, Cara would have run from the dreams instead of begging me to make them real.  She is my punishment, a test from the heavens and I know I’ll fail.  Eternal love or damnation, what choice was that to offer her soul?

He was the only hope I had in a lifetime of suffering.  Gabriel, my angel, and salvation.  Only in dreams did he come to me, pulling me into a world of peace that I couldn’t find in the real world.  He sheltered my soul in his arms and I never wanted to leave our fantasy.  Without him I was nothing.  My heart ached for this dream to be real.


She was the light in the darkness, an innocent that I could never blemish.  My beautiful Shanna, with a heart so pure it reminded me of who I once was.  My soul was tainted, body cursed, cast down from the heavens to become a creature of eternal night.  How could I allow her to walk in my world when everything I was would destroy her?


Some promises were meant to last forever, but at what cost?   Two souls lost in torment will discover what they could never control.  Destiny.  Will either of them survive the Immortal Embrace?

BLURB

 

Sexy Twin Brothers.  One owns her heart, the other makes her burn.  Would it be RUDE to keep them both?

 

Liam walked into my world and turned it upside down with his lickable abs, bedroom eyes, and alpha male persona.  He was sin personified and I wanted him to damn my soul.  Everything about him drew me in, daring me to step outside my comfort zone and forget all the rules I'd made to keep my heart safe.  He was rude, vulgar, and promised everything a good girl dreams about doing with a bad boy.

 

As if his temptation wasn't enough, his twin brother was thrown into the mix.  Luke was Liam's polar opposite in every way, except for his panty-melting looks.  Charming, respectful, and a man you wouldn't mind taking home to meet the parents. There couldn't be a more perfect man.  Put the two of them together and it was a combination no woman couldn't resist. 

 

I've never considered myself a prude, even though I was holding out for marriage.  How could I walk away from a night that fantasies were made of?  Liam told me that great sex was never boring.  It was dirty, passionate and a little rude. All I had to do was say yes. 

 

Two sexy twin brothers promising one hot night of unadulterated sex.

BLURB:  Two sexy twin brothers that always share.  Everything. Including women!

 

Liam walked into my world and turned it upside down with his lickable abs, bedroom eyes, and alpha male persona.  He was sin personified and I wanted him to damn my soul.  Everything about him drew me in, daring me to step outside my comfort zone and forget all the rules I'd made to keep my heart safe.  He was rude, vulgar, and promised everything a good girl dreams about doing with a bad boy.

 

As if his temptation wasn't enough, his twin brother was thrown into the mix.  Luke was Liam's polar opposite in every way, except for his panty-melting looks.  Charming, respectful, and a man you wouldn't mind taking home to meet the parents. There couldn't be a more perfect man.  Put the two of them together and it was a combination no woman couldn't resist. 

I've never considered myself a prude, even though I was holding out for marriage.  How could I walk away from a night that fantasies were made of?  Liam told me that great sex was never boring.  It was dirty, passionate and always a little rude. All I had to do was say yes.  Two sexy twin brothers promising one hot night of unadulterated sex.

 

Would it be Rude to turn it down?

 

 

EXCERPT:

 

“Hello beautiful.  I wasn’t sure what you liked so I made a smorgasbord of things.” 

 

Luke’s voice was warm an inviting and I couldn’t help but compare it with Liam’s seductive gravel filled tone.  I found it flattering that he’d went through so much trouble.

“I’m not picky.”  I managed a smile even though my lips were trembling. “It smells delicious.”

 

“Wish we could say the same.  Luke and I are very particular in our tastes.  Wouldn’t you agree brother?”  The fact that he was looking me over blatantly again made me wonder if were talking about food.

 

“Very picky.  In fact I’d say our tastes are very singular.  Why don’t we eat before we discuss that?” Again, Liam’s smile was charming but still I felt I was missing something very important.

 

Food was the last thing on my mind as I took in the beauty of the two men before me.  For the most part they were identical, but there were some tale-tell signs that set them apart.  Like the inflection in their voices, or the way Liam was more guttural while Luke seemed more refined.  Small differences but very easily noticeable if you were paying attention.

 

Liam set plates of food out on the breakfast bar, so I assumed we were eating casually.  I was glad we weren’t being formal but when he held out the chair sitting me in the middle I noticed how close we’d be sitting together.  Maybe a long table separating us was a good idea.  Once we’d all taken our seat, I felt the heat radiating off them.  It was instant arousal and my body wasn’t used to feeling that way. They both piled food onto my plate from each side, and I wasn’t sure I could eat a bite of it. 

 

Stuffed mushrooms, broiled lobster, steamed shrimp, cheese scones, and asparagus.  My plate was growing fuller by the moment and I held my hand up with a small laugh.  “Um, guys?  That’s more than I normally eat in a week.  At least my nervousness dissipated a little with their antics.

 

“Are you kidding?  This is a light dinner for us.”  Liam picked up my fork and speared an asparagus stalk, holding it close to my mouth.  It felt strange to be fed, but what the heck.  I took a small bite of the succulent greenery and sighed.  It was cooked to perfection and flavored just right.  Having him watch me chew was a little disconcerting but I let him continue feeding me until the stalk was gone.  I nearly fainted when he wiped my lips clean with his finger.

 

“My turn.” I turned toward Luke and a fork full of lobster waited and I had to admit there was something very erotic about allowing a man to take care of you this way.

The sensual dinner continued until I knew that if I took another bite I wouldn’t be able to walk.  Then I got to watch in pleasure as they consumed their food with a gusto that astonished me.  Both of them were so fit that I couldn’t imagine them eating so much but I guess all that muscle had to have some energy. 

 

“Thank you for dinner.  It was delicious.”  Speaking softly I felt their eyes on me before I raised my gaze to meet one then the other. 

 

“Our pleasure.”  Luke had a pained expression on his face and I was confused.  He’d seemed fine during dinner, but now I was afraid something he’d eaten disagreed with him.  “Excuse me for a moment.”

 

“Is he okay?” I watched him walk away before turning toward Liam.

 

“He’s got a bad case of blue balls if I had to guess, sweetheart.  Watching you eat has to be one of the sexiest things I’ve ever seen.”  Liam wet his lips with his tongue and the action was so sensual I felt it in my abdomen.  Luke wanted me!  The thought that either of these men were remotely interested was flattering.  I had no idea what to say.

1st in the Love for Sale Series

1st - Love for Sale Book Tour $50 Giveaway!

Billionaire, Dominant, Innocence, it’s all about the 1st!

 
Billionaire playboy Seth Rubin always got what he wanted.  It was usually handed to him on a silver platter.  He wasn't expecting an innocent to fall into his lap, or her naivety to be such a turn on..  He liked his women experienced and willing to fall in line with whatever sexual perversion he could dream up.  Caitlin was a challenge.
 
She might be a virgin, but Caitlin Smith was no pushover.  Brought up in foster care, she'd learned how to protect herself and knew exactly what she wanted in life.  That is until Seth walked in and screwed up her entire plan.  With a body built for sin, and more charm than should be legal for one man to have, he would challenge everything she was.
 
Seth and Caitlin were as different as two people could be but they both wanted the same thing. Control! When passion controls the scene, any rule might be broken.  Who will surrender first? 
 
1st is the first in a three part series that explores bondage, discipline, and a world of sensual delights.  Go ahead and get started.

Behind the Scenes with Author Michelle Hughes

 
Thanks so much for taking the time to learn about 1st, the first book in the new series, Love For Sale.  I've heard it time and time again, that authors are trying to make a comparison to Fifty Shades of Grey, let me put that question to rest right now about the Love for Sale series.  Seth doesn't have some horrible past that made him enjoy forcing women to submit, he’s just egotistical and knows what he wants.  Raised in privilege, and continuing on his family legacy, he built up his company with blood, sweat and tears.   So what you won’t get in the series is some poor, pitiful, the world owes me for what I've been through, scenario.
 
Caitlin is not your average woman.  She did have a crappy upbringing, but instead of wallowing in her self-pity, she decided to make a name for herself by working hard and overcoming obstacles. A man like Seth is the last person she expects to be attracted to, and when it happens, let’s just say she’s not very happy about the situation.  He wants a pet, and she wants an equal, so the flames are going to fly when these two headstrong people butt heads.
 
One of the things I wanted to express in this series is that submissive’s aren't normally weak.  For a strong woman to give her power, it’s much more enticing to a dominant male.  I’m sure you've heard that old saying:  “Why buy the cow when the milk is free”?  I think it’s very fitting in the loving BDSM relationship, a weak willed woman could never give what she already is.  Submission is something freely given, and a real dominant alpha male is worthy of the gift.
 
Many, many years ago, I lived with a couple who participated in the BDSM lifestyle.  They were both very dominant people when it came to their careers, and chose this path because it allowed them to find fulfillment of a different sort in their personal relationship.  There are people who “play” in BDSM, and more power to them, but in a true “relationship”, meaning something the couple lives 24/7, I saw a very different scenario than what was played out at dungeon parties.  Having seen both these worlds I understand how easy it would be for people to mistake a real lifestyle versus something people just play at.
 

 

I’m obviously not the authority on BDSM, but I've seen the positives that a relationship of this nature can bring to the table, as well as the negatives when people do it for the wrong reasons.  Love for Sale has a little of both worlds.  I think, as with any relationship, the beginning doesn't necessarily dictate how things will end up.  As a couple begins to understand what makes each of them tick, there’s a lot of room for changes.  I hope all readers enjoy the journey as much as I’m enjoying sharing it.

Debut of Fantasy Isle - Through His Eyes
Debut of Fantasy Isle - Through His Eyes



Imagine an island of fantasies only for adults. A place where every desire you had was brought to life at the hands of people who knew exactly what fulfilled your needs.  Now stop imagining and step onto the private oasis of pleasure named Fantasy Isle.  What happened when Fantasy's Bar & Grill went native?  A stimulating world of desire was born and you're personally invited to wet your feet in the first full-length adventure that started it all.

 
What's your price?  
 
 
 
If someone offered you an opportunity to never worry about finances, and have everything in this life that had been denied before, would you still hold on to your morals and refuse?  I always thought I would.  But two million dollars is a hell of a big incentive!  I considered myself a strong, independent woman, until the recession slammed me down face first.  Had my situation been different I never would have considered taking his offer!

 

Cade Stellan.  Billionaire, and closet pervert.  He liked to watch.  And I'm not referring to sporting events!  He wanted a woman that he could control and unfortunately, I'd caught his attention.  I say unfortunately because as much as I wanted to deny him, the price he offered proved that I could be bought.  Why a man like him had to pay for anything would never make sense, nor would why he had chosen a person like me to fulfill those needs.  As much as I wanted to turn him down, and prove to myself that my standards were higher, I knew I wouldn't.
 
A world of passion awaits you on Fantasy Isle, the pleasure resort for adults.  The Fantasy Isle book series, offer readers a stand-alone novel for each fantasy revealed.  Playing off the Fantasy Bar & Grill Trilogy, Michelle Hughes welcomes you to a world of sensual temptations. Through His Eyes, is the debut book for Fantasy Isle and introduces readers into a voyeuristic mind set, with ménage undertones.

Thanks so much for such an incredible year in the writing world.  Fantasy Isle is the continuation of the Fantasy's Bar & Grill Series, which was a huge success and something I was amazed that readers approved of.  I started this series three years ago, but was reluctant to put it out there for the public due to the menage story line.  These hot little fantasies were so much fun to write, but I worried it stepped over the lines in contemporary romance.  Thanks to wonderful readers like you, I know now that as long as the happily ever after ending is in play, I don't need to hold back!
 
For those of you that don't know me, I'm a Southern author from Alabama.  Married to the greatest fisherman on earth, who has a real job as well, I'm also the mom to five incredible children.  When I'm not writing, which is usually anytime that my kids are home, we enjoy hanging out on our mountain hideaway in Verbena, usually riding four wheelers, cooking out with family and friends, or fishing.  I'm pretty down to earth and enjoy talking with readers.  Social media is something that I use to make up for the isolation of living in a small town, so feel free to find me and start a conversation.
