Deep Freeze Blog Tour + Giveaway: Serenity Woods

An Insatiable Hero
  Mr. Insatiable by Serenity Woods 

Thank you so much for having me on your blog today! 

Arguably, the most important element of a romance novel is its hero, and I challenge you to find a sexier hero than Kit Fawkes from Lyrical Press’s Mr. Insatiable. Do you like the title and the cover? I love them because they fit the story and the hero so well.

Kit is a sexy, slightly kinky, irresistible pyrotechnician—a fireworks expert who loves to blow things up. The heroine, Enya, has loved him for years, but because he’s her brother’s best mate, she’s never considered him as a potential lover. One day, slightly drunk at her brother’s wedding, she confides to Kit that a sexual assault when she was younger has left her psychologically “damaged”, and she struggles to find pleasure in bed. She thinks it’s her fault, but Kit’s convinced that if she sleeps with a man who she loves and trusts, she’ll be able to relax enough to enjoy herself. Enya’s not so sure, and when he realises how much she doubts she can be happy, Kit determines to prove his point by taking her to bed. Their friends and family know that the two of them have been crazy about each other forever, but it takes a week away in Beijing for them to finally fall in love and realise they can’t live apart.

Before you ask, no, I’m not a pyrotechnician, nor do I know any! But I love fireworks, and when researching an unusual job for Kit, as soon as I read about the occupation that involves sourcing different kinds of fireworks and setting up displays, I knew I’d found Kit’s role. And it also seemed a perfect metaphor for the sexual relationship between Kit and Enya. Mr. Insatiable is an erotic contemporary romance, and the two characters create their own fireworks in the bedroom. From their chat the first evening about what they like in bed to their discussion about kinky sex while away in China, Enya’s sexual journey and Kit’s emotional one are wild and exciting. And here’s a snippet to give a taste of what to expect.

He studied her for a moment. Without her shoes, she was a lot shorter than he was, and she had to look up to meet his gaze. His blue eyes were hot, but still he hesitated, and she realized he was having doubts.

“Perhaps I should go,” he said.

Disappointment flooded through her. She desperately wanted him to stay. But she nodded.

He didn’t move, but he did try again. “It’s probably not a good idea if I stay.”

She shook her head, but she knew her eyes must be pleading for him not to go. She opened her mouth to ask him to stay, but the words wouldn’t come. What if he said no? How could she bear it?

Instead, she moistened her lips with the tip of her tongue, and in response, he gave her an exasperated look. “You’re going to have to tell me to go,” he said huskily. “Tell me you want me to go.”

Her heart pounded--he wanted to stay. Courage flooded through her, and she met his gaze and shook her head.

He stepped closer to her and cupped her face. “Tell me you don’t want me to kiss you.” He bent his head and let his lips brush hers, adding softly, “Tell me you don’t want me inside you.”

Desire threaded through her veins, hot and neat as the whisky, and she gave in and threw her arms around his neck, lifting her lips to his.

Gossip says he is hot between the sheets. Has Mr. Insatiable finally met his match? 

Enya’s been curious about Kit’s bedroom exploits ever since his ex-girlfriend spilled the beans about his…skill. But he’s not for her. Enya can’t provide what he wants from life, especially not between the sheets. 

After Enya admits she’s not good at sex, Kit persuades her to trust in him. Together, they can create fireworks in the bedroom. A few drinks followed by a discussion about kinky sex, and Enya succumbs to his charm. 

Thrilled he’s been proven correct, Kit can’t keep his hands off Enya, and she’s unable, and unwilling, to resist him. But is it just great sex…or something more? 

Sexy, sizzling hot romance. Please read with air conditioning on.
