Author Spotlight + Giveaway--Jennifer Denys

Welcome to Author Spotlights on Mondays! Today I have the lovely Jennifer Denys visiting from across the pond. She's been gracious enough to answer some fun questions and is giving away a copy of her latest release, Bounty Hunters' Captive, to one lucky commenter!
Blurb: Garin Avon is a rugged bounty-hunter in space, who has a mission to find a contracted sex slave, the beautiful Felissa De Lenn, who has run away from her master. He has secret reasons, more than just the credits he will earn—to get vital information. Meanwhile, he has to contend with his double-crossing ex-partner, fun-loving Rayn Dargo.

They join forces, but on the journey home they go through various adventures with pirates, aliens, and meteorites, amongst others. Both of the men begin to fall for sassy, smart-talking Felissa. She takes advantage of this using her skills to try to persuade them not to send her back to her vile owner. This sets the two bounty-hunters at each other’s throats.

Will they return her to a life she only undertook for dire reasons, even though, for Garin, it is vital he returns her? And if they keep her, will she run away from them?

M: Is this book part of a series?
J: It was intended to be a one-off (it came out of Friendly Seduction where the heroine helps the hero who is a sci-fi writer) but the sister of one of the heroes goes and gets herself kidnapped, so I have to tell her story now! Series name is Captured in Space.

M: I love a good conflict. What draws your main characters to each other and keeps them apart?
J: Interesting question – my two heroes are ex-partners in a bounty hunting business in space having fallen out over a previous bounty. They now fight over the heroine of BHC, a runaway sex slave, but fate intervenes and they have to work together to get her back to her master. She naturally doesn’t want to go and uses all her tricks to get them to abandon their plan, but as they journey goes on they fall in love. Will they give her back at the end of the journey or keep her? Pride, jealousy, anger, and desperation all war with love.

M: What’s your favorite sub-genre (contemporary, sci-fi, etc.) to write? To read?
J: Without a doubt Sci-fi! I am a sci-fi geek. Bounty Hunters’ Captive is my tribute to my fav sci-fi films/series/ books and there are around 50 sci-fi references in this story!

M: I usually get plot ideas in the shower and while driving. When/where does inspiration strike you?
J: My inspiration for this book is from all those years of watching Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate…. Anything with Star in it!!

M: What new stories are you working on?
J: I am writing the second in The Haunt of the Wolves series, entitled Torn Between Two Lovers and set in a werewolf BDSM club.

M: Now for a little payback for my last visit on your blog! If you could take one thing with you to the bedroom, what would it be?
J: Haha! My bounty hunters use a self sealing rope which can only be unlocked with an electronic key. I’ll have one of those! (And, of course, it will have to come with someone to use it to tie me up so that will have to be my bounty hunters…..)

M: Can I talk you into sharing an adult excerpt?
J: No problem, here goes….

As they entered Felissa’s room together she was lying across her bed, lounging against the pillows, watching an i-vid. She sat up and scowled at them.

“What do you two losers want?”

Rayn spoke first. “Well, we decided to take you at your word. That only the two of us together are men enough for you.”

Her mouth gaped open. “You’re kidding?”

“Nope. Quite serious.”

Felissa seemed a little dumbfounded. “Both of you?”
Moving to the other side of the bed, Rayn rubbed his cock through the leather of his pants. “Think you’re woman enough for two?”

Her jaw dropped then she threw back her head and chuckled. “You got anything worthwhile in there?”

Rayn chortled. “Get your lips wrapped around this, and see.”

He started to get his cock out before Garin finally moved, standing before Felissa, cupping her chin. He had to know something before they went any further. “Do you really want this, Felissa? If not, we will leave.”

“Shit, man. I’m not leaving now!” exclaimed Rayn. Garin’s lips twitched as he remembered how hard it was to change his friend’s mind once he was into the zone.

Still gazing at the girl, Garin retorted, “If Felissa isn’t happy, you can go jerk off elsewhere, buddy.”

He was entranced by the softness in her eyes and her slight smile as she pressed the button in the center of her tunic and her clothes fell off her body.

“Go ahead. Show me what you’ve got,” she declared in a husky voice. There was a twinkle in her silvery eyes.

Garin chuckled, and taking hold of her legs, he quickly pulled her toward him. Unlooping the restraints he carried, he held them up showing her what he was about to do before loosely tying her ankles to the corners of the bed. He winked at her startled face wondering if he had gone too far. But she simply raised her eyebrows in an attitude of “bring it on.”
Her hair floated around her in a pool of gold as Rayn did the same with her wrists before kneeling on the bed, his knees on either side of Felissa, clasping her head in his hands. Leaning forward he placed the tip of his freed cock on her lips.

“What? You want to put that in my mouth?” she teased.

Garin watched as his one-time friend and partner, rubbed himself along her lips, pulling away when she pretended to bite him.

“Felissa! You dare and I’m handing you over to the Krellim,” warned Garin.

She poked her tongue out at him but obediently opened her mouth, stretching out a tongue to lick Rayn. Taking the tip of his cock first, she then took more of him into her mouth as her lips wrapped around him.

The sound of her sucking aroused Garin, who couldn’t take his eyes off the scene. He was aware his own cock was throbbing but just loved watching the two of them.

“Are you joining in or just viewing?”

Rayn’s taunt got Garin moving, and he pulled her thighs wider so he could move in between them. Her body shook—with desire he hoped. Swiftly dropping his trousers he loomed over her, positioning himself until his penis touched her folds, sliding in easily, glad to find her so wet.

Her mouth left Rayn to sigh. “Yesss.” This turned into a frantic cry as Garin started to rock back and forth, thrusting in and out of her slick passage. Her breasts thumped up and down as he moved faster and faster.

“Hey, don’t forget about me.” Rayn pushed himself back into her mouth. Felissa coughed.

“Gently, man. Let her breathe.”

Rayn eased back slightly. “Sorry, sweetheart.”

Felissa clutched the ropes holding her splayed as the two men moved in tandem. Garin plunged into her vagina, and as he withdrew, in went Rayn between her lips, back and forth, slowly at first, then faster, the pre-cum from Rayn dribbling out of her mouth.

“Is this good, Felissa?” Garin asked, knowing perfectly well she was enjoying it as much as them. She nodded. That wasn’t good enough and he stopped, wanting, needing her verbal affirmation. Her eyes snapped open and she glared at him.
As she writhed underneath him pressing her engorged clit against him, his own body tightened in response to her movements, his need increasing exponentially. But he held still.

“Tell me.”

Dropping Rayn she cried, “Yes, you fucktard, it’s good. Now, move, dammit!”

Author bio: Jennifer is English and lives in a lovely historical city in the UK. Other than writing, her interests include reading (Naturally! She always has at least one book on the go, if not one by her bed, one by the bath, and one in the lounge.), all things historical including genealogy, which she has done for many, many years, watching films (particularly sci-fi), gardening, jigsaw puzzles, and walking. She lives with her pet rabbit who is thoroughly spoilt. Jennifer says she wants to come back as her own rabbit in the next life—unfortunately that would mean she still needs to be alive herself. Maybe there is a time travel story there…
If this has whetted your appetite then I am giving away one ebook copy of Bounty Hunters’ Captive to the person with the most interesting answer to this question: Name your favourite sci-fi character from any film/series or book (hero/heroine, villain, or even minor character) and why are they your fav? Don’t forget to leave your email address.
