A Giveaway and an Escape with Jennifer Labelle



The great thing about writing romance, especially when it’s erotic, is that anything goes. I can step outside the box that is my normal life and create characters with unlimited possibilities. Life is busy and let’s face it, it’s great to have an escape once in awhile.

I’ve got an amazing husband, I’m a mother of three beautiful children, and my world revolves around them first and foremost, everything else comes in second. My children are ten, five, and four so you can imagine how time consuming they can be. J  It’s the best and hardest job I’ll ever have.
So when the kids are quiet, the hubby is content, and I’ve got all the laundry, dishes, and everything else on my to-do list checked off, I like to sit back, curl up on the couch, grab my laptop, and turn my imagination into words.
In my new Edge erotica release, No Strings Attached, Julie and Ryan are two very busy people that have a hard time connecting romantically because of their hectic work schedule. He’s a sexy marine, and she’s a busy nurse. They both live, eat, and sleep their careers and decide to take the leap to change that status through a personal ad.

Check it out:
Julie Saunders and Gunnery Sergeant, Ryan Hawke have both hit a rough patch in life. Demanding jobs ensure there aren’t enough hours in the day to get out there and meet people. Tired of feeling lonely and in need of attention, they turn to the personals for a no-strings-attached encounter.

When Ryan sees Julie’s response to his ad for a hook up, he’s relieved he’s found a sane one in the bunch. She’s beautiful, they share the same goals, and she’s got a hell of an adventurous side–just what he needs.

Can reality live up to expectations or will a no-strings hook-up leave them craving more?

EXCERPT:
He slung her over his shoulder and she squealed with laughter while he ran toward the truck. Parked in the shade, it was dark enough to partially hide them from view. He loosened his hold so she could slide to the ground, every mouth watering muscle in his body molding to her along the way. She pulled him close, breast to chest, and he captured her mouth again. His tongue slid across the slit of her lips, savoring her taste before he nipped at her bottom lip. “What do you say we take the edge off a bit?”
“I’m game. What do you have in mind?” Moisture soaked her thong and she became a little breathless with excitement. Ryan’s calloused palms roamed down her sides to the hem of her dress. Gripping it ever so slowly, he pulled it up.
“First, I’m going to get this sexy dress out of the way and check how wet you are for me.” Hard fingers squeezed her ass. “Then I’m going to unzip my pants, lift you so you can wrap those very sexy legs around my waist, and enjoy the tight, wet, warmth of your pussy around my cock while I fuck you fast and hard. I plan to make you come and drown out your cries with my mouth. When we’re both satisfied, then and only then, will we go back to your place and start all over. Only next time we’ll take our time.”

“Damn, that sounds good.” She bit her lip thinking about it. “What if somebody sees us?”

“Doesn’t that make it a more exciting experience? The element of being caught at any moment a turn on?” He grinned. “It’s not likely anyone will notice. I’ll make it look like we’re just two lovers enjoying an innocent embrace. A heated kiss, if you will. Besides, I’m not sure how long this first time will last, which, if I’m being honest won’t be that long at all. I’m so worked up, it’ll be fast and hard, but I promise to make you come at least once before we leave.”
