The Big O – The Horror of Our Love Release Party and more Hard Lessons!
Hello fellow lovers of hot sex (in and out of romance novels),
Let’s talk about words that start with O!
Like October. Oh, and Orgasm. It’s double Os. Now we know where ‘Oh Oh’ came from, as in “Oh, Oh, please don’t stop!”
I love October! It’s my favourite month of the year because on the west coast of Canada, it’s that cooling off month where the leaves turn colour, the air smells minty fresh, the moon is bright against the night sky and the chill from an open window adds a sexy element to nighttime cuddling.
Yes, I am a romantic despite my protests.
October in Canada means Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian
readers and friends! It also means Halloween (okay, Halloween is not something Canada invented even if we seriously have some scary dudes!).
And how do grown-up’s celebrate Halloween? If you’re me, you open a bottle of red wine, don a sexy costume, add a little make up and throw a few come-hither looks your partner’s way. It generally works, as long as I’m not competing with the World Series!
Or you could just curl up with your favourite toy and an awesome romance book by your favourite author (or me…).
Which brings me to …
We’re having a release party and you’re all invited!
When? October 12, 8 pm EST

The Horror of Our Love, a Twisted Tales Anthology
This Anthology has five unsettling, horror romance novellas written by five fabulous writers! Buy it on Amazon today for $0.99 USD before the price goes up to $3.99. And of course, it’s always FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
Who might these lovely writers be?
Well, me for starters (Jasmin Quinn in case you need a reminder). My novella is titled First Blood Moon and let’s just say it makes the Werewolf in London look like Bambi (actually, it eats Bambi for breakfast!).
About First Blood Moon by Jasmin Quinn (ME!)
Grace is running for her life, running towards her fate. Rescued from one nightmare to be thrust into another by Hawes, a man, a wolf, a demon. Her mate. Or so it is prophesied.
Hawes, part-wolf, part-demon, Alpha of his pack. Waiting for his mate to arrive. Waiting to take her innocence, waiting to plant his seed. Waiting to create a God.
The world will change on the night of the Hunter’s Blood Moon…
The other amazing authors who have contributed to The Horror of Our Love Anthology are:
Stalked – Nikita Slater
Hollow – DD Prince
Masked – Nicole Heinz
The Tombstone Tourist – Bonny Bennett
You are absolutely going to love these novellas – each one reflecting the author’s personal writing style, all of them compelling and engaging, and as scary as that scene in the Exorcist when Regan’s head turns 360 degrees (I jest – nothing is that scary except Hannibal Lecter in any scene in Silence of the Lambs)!
If you haven’t already, put the Anthology on your To-Read List on Goodreads! Once you’ve read the stories, don’t forget to review the book!
Switching topics, but not really!
Since we’re talking about scary stuff, Mr. Mafia, Jack Creed merits a mention. Another reason why October is so fantastic. Hard Lessons will be out on October 25th. But it’s up for presales, so grab your copy now for just $0.99 on Amazon! The price will go up October 25th!
No sound, Mira. No crying, no sobbing, no screaming, no protesting, no moaning. No words. Not even a whimper.
What happens when Mira, superstar Las Vegas prosecuting attorney goes toe-to-toe with Jack Creed, dark, dangerous mafia man? What happens when Mira puts Jack’s brother away for 15 years for what she deems a BDSM-related murder?
Jack gets mad is what happens! He decides the pretty lawyer needs a few Hard Lessons of her own to bring her to heel.
While he’s schooling Mira on her true submissive nature, someone is chipping away at his criminal empire, murdering his men and interfering with his operations. Jack needs his brother out of jail and back in the game and he’ll do anything to make it happen, including exploiting Mira’s vulnerabilities.
This is a story of seduction, betrayal, and second chances. It explicitly explores elements of BDSM including bondage, dominance, submission, and pain play. For adults (18+) only.
Thanks to Jack Creed, I’m starting a new 3-book series which will focus on BDSM as the central theme in each of the books. I haven’t quite settled on a name for the series but am working on Book 1. That doesn’t mean an end to the Running with the Devil series. There’s a whole lot more story to be told. Book 6 of Running with the Devil is in progress as well.
To finish on an orgasmic bang, here are a few of my other favourite O words:
Obscene – I love this one. I love pairing this one with erection, as in… his erection was obscene!
Obscenity – Also words I love. My editor always tells me to tone it down a little. Believe it or not, the final edits of my books are exceptionally toned down.
Old fashioned – that’s a hand job, or as Anto Kharzin likes to call it, a do-it-your-selfer.
One-night-stand – I’ve had them, but never intentionally. I’m too much of a romantic to not think about the potential of a relationship with every guy I’m intimate with. But some men can be pricks (oops, forgot it was O word day) and not always appreciative of the amazing sex they were lucky enough to get.
And then of coarse, the BIG O!
I love them. I love having them, I love giving them, I love writing about them. I swear I’m not a complete sex fiend, but I truly believe that the human sexual drive is as natural as horns on a unicorn and not something women should be shy about, ashamed of or apologize for.
Orgasms for women are not always easy. It took me a while to learn how to have awesome ones and as a young woman (I’m still young, just not very…), I couldn’t understand what was wrong with me because I wasn’t orgasming during sex. Thank god for Google. You know what? About 75% of women don’t reach orgasm from intercourse alone!
We need more that just vaginal stimulation, we need a sex toy, hands or a tongue, which is why my female characters don’t just pop off their orgasms when Mr. Perfect Mafia Man slips them the dickie. They need a little work, a little stimulation, a little foreplay, post-play, toys, fingers, tongues.
Mmmm hmmm… on that happy note, gotta go!
