“Show me.”

She scowled. “I’m not a trick pony to perform on your command.”

“No, a trick pony doesn’t know how to talk back like you do.”

“I didn’t know I was looking for you, but I was,” he whispered.
“I want to do everything to you, all at once,” he muttered. “I want to stroke you, fuck you, hold you down, lift you up, pin you, take you. I want you to take me. Lord and Lady, Sophie, I don’t know that I have any gentleness in me tonight.”
“My men follow orders!”

“I’m a consultant!” she snapped. “Not your foot soldier. I don’t take orders from you.”

“You’re fired!” he growled.

 “The gods only know why,” he whispered.  “But I find you sexy as hell.  So far, you’ve been nothing but trouble.”

“Ugh, stop talking,” she told him, putting the fingers of both hands over his mouth.  “You ruin it when you talk.  I find you sexy as hell too, as long as you stay silent.”

Favorite Quotes

God help her, she had become a slave to her own lust . . . and she was enjoying it.
Yes, this man had power over her. But she had the same power over him. She drew in a breath, embracing the power.
His palm came down on her arse again, and then again. As the sting metamorphosed into pleasure, she shattered again, all the time his fingers pumping in and out of her wet channel.

The Professional Quote

“When a woman singles me out”—he leaned down to murmur at my ear—“it’s because she wants to get fucked. She looks at the scars and tattoos and knows she’ll get fucked hard.”
 “Why do you insist on calling me pet?”

“Maybe because you make a man want to collar and keep you.”

“It made you happy, to be used by me?”

Perhaps not so promising. I raised my brows with amusement. “I orgasmed three times; you did once. Who’s using whom, Siberian?”

“How the hell do you call Russia from Greece? It’s like trying to figure out rela-fucking-tivity. And still, I gave it several shots. Of Ouzo. Seriously, you have no idea how much your situation is affecting me. I’ve been stress-eating my way across Greece.”

I frowned. “You don’t stress-eat—”

“Cock, Natalie. I was stress-eating cock. There, you made me say it, happy now?”

“And call me old-fashioned, but I’m going to at least take you to dinner before I violate the hell out of you.”
“I know what you want, sugar, and I’m going to give it to you. I’ll fuck you hard and rough. I’ll take you. Possess you. You’ll fight me and I’ll win because it’s what we both want. But tonight, right now, here in this restaurant, I’m going to be soft. Because, even though I know you don’t want it, I think you need soft.”
This isn’t about sex. This is about surrender. To him. To myself. To the possibility of what we may become.

Archangel’s Enigma by Nalini Singh

“Am I food?” Hand closing over her nape, he nipped at her lower lip. “You are mine.” Words that didn’t sound wholly human.
His soft, astonishing hair brushing over it, the damp strands a cool caress, he pressed a kiss to her pulse. It jumped. Nostrils flaring, he licked over the skin but didn’t bite. “One day, I’ll sip from you while my cock is snug inside your tight sheath, and it’ll be slow and deep and long.”

Favorite Quotes for Training Lady Townsend

It was useless to try to fight him. All the boring, respectable husbands in the world, and she ended up with this one. Precisely her luck.
“I spanked you that night for resisting me. Perhaps I should spank you now for not resisting me enough.”
Aurelia burst into laughter at his now-familiar piratical expression. “You’d spank me for absolutely any reason, and we both know it. For blinking too many times in a minute. For breathing. For wearing the color blue.”
“For mocking your husband,” he said, pulling her down over his lap.

Favorite Quotes for To Tame a Countess

“It’s pointless to fight me,” he said as she tried to escape him. “I’ll only subdue you until I get my way.”

Favorite Quotes for My Naughty Minette

“Come here,” he said in a voice that was really very strident indeed.
“I don’t want to come there,” she replied. “I think I would rather go to my room, or take a walk in the garden. Shall we go and have a walk in the garden together? I believe you need it. Outdoor strolls can be ever so calming for choleric humors. You know, it’s not a good idea to discipline a person when you’re angry. My brother always waited until he calmed down before he punished me for something, especially if it was a serious offense. Or an irritating offense. Would you say you are more irritated or angry at the moment?”

I think it’s time we cleared this shit up. I like your hand on my dick. I’d like your mouth on it better. I want your cunt, your ass—everything. No more games, Becca. You know who and what I am, and you know that when I fuck you, it won’t be pretty. I don’t do pretty.
His hardness pressed into me and when he started walking me backward toward my bedroom, it never occurred to me to protest. Nothing occurred to me, actually. Full brain shutdown.
Doesn’t matter how fuckable a woman looks in a pair of pants if you can’t get them off when it’s time to tap ass.
“Pull down your fucking pants,” I repeated, reaching down to grab my cock. “I want in. Now.”

“I like the way you say my name. Classy and dignified, with a hint of sexiness. Makes me wonder how it’d feel to have your mouth on me when you moan it.”
“Mmm. Sweet thang, I’m gonna have so much fun telling you every dirty little thing I plan to do to you.” He made a half growl against the side of her throat. “Then doing it.” He sank his teeth into her skin and growled again. “At least twice.”

If you tell me you don’t want me, I’m going to demand you give me your panties to prove they’re not damp.
“I want to crowd you,” he said, leaning back in his chair but maintaining the intimacy of the eye contact. “I want to pin you under me and fuck you hard, then I want to slam you up against pretty much every wall in this place. After which I want to bend you over my desk, my bed, this table. For starters.”
Tasting her lips, he licked his tongue over hers before kissing a path down her lusciously sensitive throat.  “You taste like my woman,” he said as she moaned.
“As long as I can throw you on the bed like a caveman and pummel you to orgasm with my love-club, I’m good.”  Her shoulders shook, a little snort escaping her as she said, “I am not laughing.”

nalini bio

1. Which of your characters do you love most? Or maybe which character resonates with you the most. Why?
This is such a hard question for me to answer. I truly don’t have favorites – or if I do, it tends to be the protagonists of the book which I’m currently writing. They get all my focus, which I think is as it should be – it’s their turn to shine in the spotlight.
2. Which of your heroines (or heroes) would you like to be for a day? What would you do?
I think it would be a blast to be Elena for a day – to clarify, this would be a calm, sunny day when no one is trying to kill Elena. I’d just fly around New York, sweep past the skyscrapers and above the Hudson, and maybe play a game of angel baseball with the others!
3. Is there one type of genre you’d love to write but feel daunted trying it out? (Sci-fi, Fantasy, NA, BDSM, etc)
I LOVE reading historicals, but the idea of doing all that research is slightly terrifying. Still, you never know! Maybe one day, I’ll face the fear and give it a go.
4. How did you come up with the idea of calling Gabriel, “T-Rex?”
It just happened as I was writing. I was in Charlotte’s head – some of her thoughts are just hilarious. She might be a mouse on the surface, but she’s got this bright, sharp mind. And at some point, she just muttered how Gabriel was a T-Rex rampaging through the company and boom, that was it.
5. Do you have any authors that are go-to for you, you’ll 1-Click no matter what?
Oh, absolutely!! JD Robb, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Laura Florand are just three of my auto-buy authors who I’ve read recently. I have so many more – I’m a total lifelong bookworm.
6. You started writing contemporary and then branched into PnR. What do you like about writing one genre over the other?
I enjoy them both and have actually always written both, even if one was in the background. Overall, it depends more on the idea than the genre – for example, when I got the idea for what became my first paranormal series (Psy-Changeling), it was so powerful that it consumed me in the best way. The same with the Guild Hunter series, and now with the Rock Kiss series. When I sit down to write, I think about the stories that are compelling me – and then I just go with it.

7. Have you had any crazy/funny/bizarre typos when writing a sex scene?  I.e. Forgot where limbs were in previous paragraph, environment changed mid-scene, etc.

Hmm… *goes into memory vault* I can’t actually remember any really bad ones, but you know, that could be because I’ve erased them from the memory banks! The only one I can recall is a clothing mishap where I skipped the hero/heroine taking off certain important items of clothing. That was in an early draft though, so I caught it fairly early on (phew!).


Charlotte arrived at work at seven-thirty the next morning to find Gabriel Bishop’s office door open, but no carnivorous predator inside. A fresh suit was hanging on the back of his door, however, which meant he’d been in already.

Deciding to catch up on e-mails that had come in overnight from international suppliers as well as stores involved in a stock take, she was typing a reply when a sweaty Gabriel arrived fifteen minutes later. He was dressed in black running shorts and a faded University of Auckland T-shirt that was currently sticking to his body.

She’d known he was in shape, but now she realized none of it was an illusion created by his well-cut suits. Okay, she’d already known that, but seeing his muscled body in the flesh was a whole different ball game. He was built like a tank, hard and powerful.

Each of his thighs was thicker than both of hers put together, his biceps toned, his shoulders appearing even wider than usual. Everything about him was big. Civilized clothing didn’t make him look better, she realized—it toned down his intense masculinity. Out of his suits, with the ink on the upper part of his left arm exposed, as well as that on his opposing thigh and…

Her skin hot and lower body clenching, she just nodded in response to his “Good morning.”

Disappearing into his office, he returned with his suit pants and a fresh shirt slung over his arm, along with a sports bag. “Push the meeting with Sales to nine, will you, Ms. Baird? I need to talk to HR about something before then.”

“Yes, sir,” Charlotte said almost soundlessly, but he was already gone, heading toward the employee shower one floor down.

The thigh tattoo went all the way around, the design intricate.

Heart rate a rapid stutter, Charlotte got up after he disappeared and decided to go grab him a coffee. He’d bought her one yesterday after all. She was just being nice. “Oh, shut up, Charlotte,” she muttered once she was in the elevator, and slumped her face into an upraised hand.

The truth was she was running away. Only for a few minutes, but that’s what this was: strategic retreat. Gabriel Bishop was overwhelming. Once, before she’d ever met him and under the influence of cocktails, she’d told Molly she wanted to rip off his shirt and sink her teeth into his pecs.

That desire hadn’t waned even now that she knew he was a T-Rex. Of course, the desire was all strictly in her imagination. The idea of actually handling him in real life? So impossible as to be laughable. Charlie-mouse was not about to play with a predator who could eat her alive and not even notice the bones. The good news was that she could admire him in relative safety—there was no chance in hell he’d ever notice her as a woman.

Getting the coffee from a nearby café, she took it back upstairs. He was in his office when she entered, the striped dark gray of his tie hanging around his neck and his damp hair roughly combed. The scent of clean, fresh soap over warm skin permeated the office. Shooting her a smile that turned him from gorgeous to flat-out devastating, he flipped up the collar of his white shirt to get the tie in place. “Thank you, Ms. Baird.”

Nodding, Charlotte escaped, though she really wanted to stay. She’d never realized how erotic it was to watch a man dress until this precise moment. And she shouldn’t be having these thoughts about her boss—especially since she couldn’t keep from quivering like a rabbit in his presence. Sometimes she just annoyed herself.

“Get to work,” she muttered and knuckled down.

Gabriel was fine for the first hour, but then he began barking orders even a six-armed woman with a split personality would have had trouble handling.

Finally, pushed to the edge, Charlotte snapped. “I’m going as fast as I can!” she yelled when he asked her for something a minute after he’d asked her to complete another task.

He scowled and held out a file. “This is a priority.”

Grabbing it from his hand, she said, “Fine,” and slapped it down on her desk.

It was over an hour later that he disappeared for ten minutes. When he returned, it was to put a small bakery box on her desk. “I think you need something to sweeten your mood today, Ms. Baird.”

What she needed was for the T-Rex who was her boss to stop snarling and growling, she thought as he returned to his office. Not opening the box until her curiosity had almost killed her, she found it held a slice of decadent chocolate cake with a white-chocolate ganache topped with curls of both white and milk chocolate. “I cannot be bribed with cake,” she muttered, eating a bite nonetheless.

“Bruce,” he repeated. “That’s your safe word. Say, yes sir, if you understand and agree. If not say, Bruce and we stop here and now.”
“Holy shit.” Nadia was dumbstruck.
“That wasn’t one of your options, sweetheart.”
With Nadia, he craved her submission in ways that went beyond the scene and sex. He wanted it fully. He wanted her fully. He wanted to crack open her heart and her mind and carve a place out for himself that made her his in truth.
“Baby girl,” Jonas said as he looked her over, and ran one large, warm palm over her already puckered nipples. “I have to tell you, I’m so glad you decided to mouth off. The rest of the drive is going to be a lot more interesting now.”

I can’t wait to feel your cunt squeezing me. Lick your clit, taste you . . . It’ll be good between us. You know it will.”
“You’re wearing too much,” I said. “Take something off, because otherwise I’m going to start ripping things.”
“Just let me be strong for you for a minute, okay?” he said softly.  “You’ve held on for a long time, sweetheart.  Nobody can say you haven’t been strong.  But it’s been a hell of a night, so why don’t you let me hold you and help you right now, okay?”
“It’s a guy thing,” he told me.  “We like taking care of our women.  You don’t let me help you, the other boys’ll make fun of me and then I’ll have to cry.  Are you trying to make me cry, London?”  He blinked at me like an innocent puppy…
