An April Fool’s Day joke.Okay, there was this blonde, she walked into a bar and went ouch.
I just know someone out there is scratching their head and saying, “I don’t get it.” That’s okay, give it a minute. *snickers*Alright, alright, so I’m not the best jokester, but I do enjoy my humor. When Olivia suggested the Getting Naked In April Blog Hop, I couldn’t resist—signing up, not getting naked. Let’s talk about the day first, and then I’m going to share a little of the sneaky humor in my Edge Carnality series.
Well, to understand the origins of April Fools, you have to know a bit about it. Way back, sometime around 1582 in France, the Gregorian calendar was changed and with this change, April 1st was no longer considered New Year’s Day.Because folks didn’t have cell phones, word about the change didn’t get around in a speedy manner. For years, many continued to celebrate April 1st as the New Year. These folks were called fools by the better informed. From there, the holiday became a day of practical jokes, a time to become the tricked and tricksters.
In many of my stories I like to have a touch of humor. I love subtle humor, the kind that you’ll read, and five pages past, hits you, aka, dry humor. Sometimes I go for a slow punch line, and sometimes it’s in your face.
My Edge Carnality stories are no exception. In Carnal Desires, Mercedes, a good girl, finds herself in the back of an adult toy store holding a giant vibrator.Excerpt:
She tried to set it down but couldn’t. The desire to hold it a little longer engulfed her. It continued to buzz, vibrating in her hand. Her thumb slid along a button, increasing the speed. The head undulated faster, drawing her deeper into its hypnotic dance. Mesmerizing.Sin in her palm, the four rows of beads spun around the silicone member underneath a thin skin of soft rubber. A little red devil, a clit stimulator buzzed with excitement, ready for more action than she thought she was capable of giving him.
What would it be like to do something a little naughty? Something completely wrong and out of character. Her thighs clenched and she closed her eyes. Two guys at once. Maybe a woman. If only she’d been more adventurous, Kevin would have never have left her for that—sl…other woman.
Something that smelled like warm chocolate, musk, and sex wafted across the air from behind her. Mercedes lifted her nose, inhaling. Keeping her eyes closed, she let the combination soak into her. Incense? Who cared—it was—decadent. A fluttering started in her pelvis and heat balled in her belly. It had to be the sexiest thing she’d ever….
“Would you like a demonstration?” asked a voice that could only be described as an erotic growl, made even more so, coming from heated lips pressed against the sensitive flesh of her ear.
Busted! Can 't you just feel the heat in her cheeks?In Carnal Attraction, Jezebel is on the prowl. Here, she brings home dinner.
“Good.” She leaned in, hooked her bra top around the back of his neck, and pulled him into a kiss hot enough to melt him in his boots. Seconds later she released her top, leaving it draped on his shoulders. “Meet me out back in five minutes,” she eyed his buddies, “—alone.”Jezebel rolled to her heels and rose to her feet, slowly sashaying her way back from where she’d come.
As she passed Azael who crunched on an apple, while leaning against a wall that led to the changing rooms, she reached out and brushed her fingers across his jaw. “I’ve brought take-out.”
He grinned and tossed the apple over his shoulder. “American?”
“An MRE,” she said as she exited into the back room.
Hu-ah. Three guesses what Jezebel is doing and who her target is.And last but not least, Carnal Denial. The hunters become the hunted, but my demons know a thing or two about survival, and there’s nothing in the rule book that says they have to play fair. Virgin demon slayers are dangerous and Jezebel plans to do something about that.
Excerpt:As it ebbed, they stared into each other’s eyes, panting to catch their breath. Mike didn’t say anything, but held her pinned against the hood of her car, her legs wrapped around his waist, her torn panties hanging off her left ankle like a banner of surrender. Neither said anything, staying where they were until it stopped. Too late to change her mind. Too late for regrets. And she didn’t care. Jezebel and Azael had never harmed her, or anyone that she could tell.
