Amanda Slade has a major crush on her sexy art professor and wants his help with an important extracurricular activity: Project VirgEnd.
Professor Jem Nichols knows falling for his beautiful student is a bad idea but he just can’t say goodbye as the semester ends. But the professor refuses to hastily take her virtue. Instead, he wants to slowly teach her the most important lessons of lovemaking. As she experiences first-time pleasures and passions, love blooms.
By the time they’re done, he’ll know every inch of her body. But as her deadline for deflowerment looms, will the professor be the one to take Amanda all the way? This is a sweet yet steamy love story.

Excerpt:

Amanda’s First Experience with an Art Model

By A.C. Rose ©2017

I was in the front row of the class in my usual seat, when a gorgeous, robed man walked into the art classroom, stood on a small platform, untied the sash to his robe and let it fall on the floor. He was naked.

Turning to take an innocent glance at the model, I nearly gasped out loud when I found myself eyeball to eyeball with his penis. He seemed so unashamed, so unaffected, as he stood there gazing out at all who studied his naked form.

I looked at my friend Tara and she looked at me. It was the tenth week of the semester in our Basic Art course, but we had no clue what was going on until the professor stepped in front of the room.

“Today we’ll be working with a live nude model so we can learn to translate the human form to paper,” he announced. “We’ll be working with charcoal, so remember, we’re looking for the essence of the human body—the shape, not details.”

With that, Professor Jem Nichols passed around the box of charcoal crayons and handed out huge sheets of drawing paper. As he got closer to me, a rush of warmth flowed through my body and ended in a nervous tingle in my stomach.

Maybe it was wishful thinking, but when he reached my desk to distribute the supplies, I could swear his hand lingered an extra moment near mine as I claimed my two pieces of charcoal from the box. And that he looked at me a certain way.

When he moved on to the next student, I breathed a sigh of relief, only because I worried my physical reactions to his presence would reveal I had a crush—a big one—on my teacher.

Why I Wrote A Book About A Virgin Student and a Hot Professor

By A.C. Rose

As some of you already know, I tend to write romance books that are based on real life experience. And I must admit that I once fell for my professor, and that steamy love story gave me inspiration for my sweet and steamy romance book, STAY AFTER CLASS.

i'm a virgin white

And yes, he was super hot. And the fact that HE wanted ME was just about the coolest thing ever. I felt wanted and chosen. I felt adult.  But most significantly, he truly did teach me about making love. He pushed me to open up, become the woman I was meant to be.

I was younger and he was older. Even though I was of age, it was the sweetest taboo of it all. He was single but it had no place to go at the time because I still had a lotta livin’ to do.

I recently looked at a photo of young me as a college student at that time and I could not believe how young I looked. So innocent looking, I almost could not believe I was sexing it up with my hot professor after class and on weekends.

Suddenly I thought, maybe he was a little inappropriate in sweeping me off my feet but then I remembered, I was kind of an old soul, and we were like super magnets, attracted to each other so hard.

I was no virgin. But I still had a lot to learn at that age.

I have not been a virgin for a really — really, really — long time.

And therein was the challenge that inspired me to create Amanda Slade. She’s innocent and inexperienced, and a little slow about sex stuff and men stuff, but I was there once.

She’s truly learning it all as she goes along. But she has an awesome teacher, willing to spend time on lessons in lovemaking.

This character took me all the way back to my first kiss. And my first bj. And my first everything. And all the awkward girly feelings that came with it.

I made Amanda 21 going on 22 and someone who uses her noggin to make decisions. And I made Jem so delicious that it made me want to go back to college.

And I gave them a happy ending. Maybe it was the happy ending I wished for at the time.

So here’s to the young virgins in us all. Our youthful, innocent selves, landing the hottest guy at school, who teaches us all about love.

Hope you enjoy my tale of the virgin and the professor. And hope you feel 21 again!

Thanks for reading!

Deborah Wilde Chats About ‘The Unlikeable Demon Hunter’

Interview by A.C. Rose

Deborah Wild Author photo

A global wanderer, hopeless romantic, and total cynic with a broken edit button, Deborah Wilde writes adult urban fantasy romance to satisfy her craving for smexy love stories and tales of chicks who kick ass. Her debut novel The Unlikeable Demon Hunter is described as Bridesmaids meets Buffy. She is all about the happily-ever-after, with a huge dose of hilarity along the way.  Her latest book is The Unlikeable Demon Hunter. She describes it as “Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.”
We chatted with Deborah about her new book, her appreciation of strong women and smexy (smart + sexy) men, and the truth about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Your heroine is a strong, kick ass woman. Did your inspiration for Nava come from anyone you know? Or anyone we know?

Nava is me when I turn off my edit button. She’s snarky, self-defensive, and has carefully cultivated her hot mess status. This is a girl seriously in denial about the emotional baggage she’s carrying around from a couple of major life upsets. We share a love of tap dancing, smexy men, and craving our own happily-ever-after, which I have. Yay!

When I created Nava, I really wanted to play with what being an “unlikeable” female meant because I believe that even fictional women are held to a different standard than fictional men, especially around sexuality. And I also brought a lot of my issues around the sexism inherent in the Jewish religion (mine) to it. So yeah, Nava and her story are very personal to me in different ways.

What makes you fall in love with a hero when you are writing?

Well, I like them alpha and cocky, though issue laden, but they have to totally respect the woman and not get chauvinist. I’m not a fan of the guy being a douchebag. Also, they need to be funny. Funny is super important. As is knowing their way around a woman’s body.

So with my current hero, Rohan, he fights Nava for control in every aspect of their relationship, but he only does so because he knows she can stand toe-to-toe with him. He also has her back so completely and, because of his belief in her, he pushes her to grow as a person in a way that no one else does. He’s a California boy of East Indian/Jewish heritage who was a former mega rock star, and he loves his mother. *insert awwww*

Tell us a little bit about your newest book.

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter is the first book in my new urban fantasy series. It’s the age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose. I describe it as Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

Can you share the titles and reading order of your new series?

Book 1: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter

1.5: Slay (a short story)

2: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Sting

2.5: Crush (a short story)

3: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Need

And then 3 other planned books in the series so far.
What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance, fantasy, sci-fi-mystery, some lit fic, though less than I used to read. A good story is a good story so I don’t discriminate but there is a ton of romance or romance cross-genre that I read.
Where does the magic happen? Do you write in a home office or on the road, or both?

Mostly I write in a home office, though if I travel I’ll take my iPad and get up early to write or write on a plane. When I’m possessed and deep into the story, I don’t care where I write. Just don’t make me stop.
Why do you think romances are good for readers?

Because love is good for readers and the journey of falling in love is so much fun.
Since you hail from Canada have you ever seen the prime minister up close? Is he as cute as he looks?

I haven’t though I have friends who have and they tell me he’s extremely skinny when you meet him face to face. Sorry if that’s disillusioning anyone.

Thank you so much for letting me chat with you!

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance-impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.
Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.

19 Healthy Ways to Chase Away the Blues

could use another orgasm

 

By A.C. Rose

Feeling bummed out, disappointed, and worried about the future? Overwhelmed by social media that is filled with fear and anger? Although we are all entitled to our feelings and opinions, it is important to pull away from negativity and focus on life’s pleasures.

Sometimes the best path to healing is small acts that bring back peace, rejuvenation, and a refreshed attitude.

Here are 19 simple things that you can do in five minutes or less to restore a sense of hope.

1. Take a dance break. Turn on your favorite music and dance. Shake the stress out of your body.

2. Jump in the shower. Refreshing water can help melt away worries and wake up your mind.

3. Go for a walk around the block. Breathe in fresh air and enjoy the changing pace as you move through different blocks, neighborhoods, or parks.

4. Make a happy list. If you feel low, lift your spirits by writing a list of the things that make you happy, and take a moment to remember why.

5. Search for inspirational quotes. Words of wisdom can do wonders. Go on the Internet to find quotes on happiness, motivation, and possibility.

6. Put yourself on the beach. Watch a film clip or video — or look at a photo — that transports you there. Or go there if you can.

7. View a snippet from a favorite movie. Don’t have time to watch a whole film? Find many of your favorite scenes on the web for quick viewing.

8. Listen to music. Play a piece of music that enlivens you and wakes up your system.

9. Use scents. Aromatherapy can relax and uplift people, but a favorite perfume or essential oil can too. Surround yourself with smells that make you feel good.

10. Call a friend. A quick chat with a bestie can help put things in perspective.

11.  Sip your morning brew in quiet. Get up early to take a brief break for tea or coffee as you greet the day before everyone else in the house does.

12. Throw stuff out. Grab something (or more than one thing) you’ve been meaning to ditch, toss in a garbage bag, and get it out of the house. You may feel a lightness of being.

13. Make someone’s day. A short call to an elderly loved one or someone less fortunate can help you forget your own troubles.

14. Meditate briefly. Five minutes of quiet can do a lot of good. Just focus on your breathing and relax.

15. Enjoy a work of art. Whether it’s in your home or something you spot online, get lost in the beauty of an image you adore.

16. Enjoy a waterfall. If you can’t sit by a waterfall, find a video online and let the sight and sound of water calm you.

17. Smile. You cannot be upset when you smile. Try smiling even when you are feeling bad.

18. Laugh out loud. Sometimes all you need is a few minutes of something that makes you crack up to chase a blue mood away.

19. Have an orgasm. Anyway you choose!

 

The Womanizer: My New Plastic, Fantastic Lover

By A.C. Rose

OMG, I got a new lover — The Womanizer by epi24.

This is is BEST sex toy ever. It is lightweight and quiet, and creates the feel of multiple tongue strokes with a unique sucking motion and makes you orgasm within two or three minutes (or sooner, for some).

There is no wear and tear on the hands, fingers, or the body. Instant, intense orgasm is yours. Seriously LOVE this toy. It is actually the only one I own!

Recommend you keep it handy when reading hot books. Or anytime you need a quicky.  But not a bad thing to use in the boudoir with your honey when his/her mouth or hands need a little time out. Just beware: Your lover may get jealous of the superpowers contained in The Womanizer. It’s that close to the feel of a human and that good!

I always say, a man lights up like a match and a woman heats up like an oven. Sex research has shown us time and again that a man can orgasm in two or three minutes (or less) and a women takes at least 14-28 minutes, and likely more.

The Womanizer turns the orgasm stats in a woman’s favor. You do not even need any foreplay or fantasy for it to work. It just does it’s thing!

The toy is very smooth and comfortable to hold in your hand. It is also elegant-looking, and comes in pretty colors, with a protective and nice-looking carrying case.

Here are some details from the makers of The Womanizer:

The indirect clitoral stimulator uses PleasureAir Technology to deliver an entirely new type of stimulation that has women going from zero to 60, safely, and often multiple times.

It’s comparable to receiving oral sex from a skilled partner. At its lowest intensity, it feels like gentle kisses against the clitoris. Add a little more power and the sensation gets stronger.

There are 9 Available Styles: Black/Leopard, Pink/Leopard, Blue/Croc, Pink/Croc, Black/Tattoo, Red/Roses, Pink/Pink Swarovski Crystals, Pink/White Swarovski Crystals, Black/Leopard Print Swarovski Crystals

Key Features:

– PleasureAir touchless stimulation produces fast, often multiple orgasms

– 5 adjustable levels of intensity

– Exchangeable easy to clean silicon stimulation head

– USB Rechargeable lithium ion battery

– Zipper Travel Case

*Based on a sampling size of 100 women, 50% orgasm in 60 seconds or less, 80% orgasm between 2-3 minutes, and three-fourths experienced multiple orgasms.

(I heard it was invented and tested by a hubby and wife team who worked together to perfect it. They did a good job!)

My final thoughts:

Full disclosure: The Womanizer folks provided the the product so I could test-drive it. I had never heard of anything like it so I was curious to see how it worked. I truly love it. And recommend it.

Make sure you use a little lubricant because the “pleasure air” can make things a little dry without it. Still a good feeling all around.

As with anything else, you can ask your doctor if this is the right item for you–if your dare. Also, make sure you read the instruction booklet that comes with The Womanizer and keep it clean per instructions.

It’s a pricier orgasm aid than your finger or some of the other items on the market, but worth it.

One of the things I love about it is if you position it correctly just over the clitoris, it does the job without having to move your hands, or rub, or work too hard. You don’t have to work at all for your orgasms, in fact.

They come in lots of colors and styles, from Leopard to Black Tattoo (below). Get yours here:
