Excerpt

Charles Harrison, attorney-at-law and confirmed bachelor, enjoyed a good cigar more than anything.  The only thing more pleasurable than a quality cigar was a member of the female persuasion.  He could spend a considerable amount of time enjoying a pretty woman.  Watching a lovely lady stroll away was a favorite pastime.  The way her hips swayed causing her skirt to swing side to side in a lazy, come here cowboy, kind of way always entertained him.  Yes, a pretty woman was special.  He didn’t like to brag, but he had to admit to being intimately acquainted with the majority of the ladies in Tyler.  Releasing a tight circle of fragrant cigar smoke, he leaned against the wall in front of Jones’ Mercantile, smiling to himself.  Yes, he’d certainly enjoyed his fair share.  Glancing down at his pocket watch, Charles sighed.  The stage was right on time.  Settling the chair on four legs, he stood, stretching.  Several passengers were already gathering their belongings.  He was to meet a client, a special client, to be sure.  A client of questionable credibility though.

Her name was Cassandra St. Clair.  The name exuded sensuality, he decided.  No country bumpkin with a name like Cassandra.  No, this was a refined lady of class.  He’d checked out her background.  She’d been an orphan raised at the Tyler Mission near Fort Tyler.  Father Samuel at the mission hadn’t been forthcoming with any more information concerning the girl, only that she’d gone to school at St. Mary’s School for Girls in New Orleans, graduating several years ago before staying to teach.  He did learn she had a benevolent benefactor who provided her with a monthly check.

She’d contacted Charles asking him to locate her birth father, Earl Loflin.  The task hadn’t been hard at all.  Charles considered Earl his mentor, and surrogate family.  He’d saved Charles from jail and the gallows years ago.  Insisting he go away to West Point with his son, Seth, Charles had gotten an education before becoming an attorney.

Instead of handing it over to a private investigator, his decision to take on her request personally centered on the reason Miss St. Clair wanted to find her father.  He couldn’t say with all honesty he trusted the woman or her motives.  Earl Loflin owned more than half of Smith County.  She needed to prove to him without a doubt she was who she claimed to be.  His interest pricked when he discovered she received regular visits from Maggie McCready and Jake Long, long time employees of Earl’s.  Why hadn’t Father Samuel told him about their relationship with the girl?  He searched the passengers again for the woman.

A female voice caught his attention.  A delicate young thing in a blue traveling suit stepped off the noon stage from Shreveport.  Charles’ heart jumped.

Her blond hair showed white in the sunlight.  Her trim figure bordered on petite.  Yes, a delicate little lady to be sure.

The Wells Fargo baggage handler tossed her bag in the dirt.

Only a moment passed before her mouth thinned in a tight line and she folded her arms across her chest.  He thought he could hear her tapping her toe from his post across the street.  The disbelief showed ripe on her face.  Charles grinned around the cigar clamped between his teeth.

The prank was one the baggage handler used often, usually on the least suspecting passenger.  The simple fellow found it amusing, he supposed.  Laughing to himself, Charles tucked his thumbs in the watch pockets of his brocade vest.  Smoke curled lazily upward in a spiral as misleading as his smile.  If he wasn’t completely mistaken, this young thing was his client.  The day was about to get interesting.  She sashayed with a purpose up the steps of the Wells Fargo office.  Any fool could see that.  Rapping smartly on the ticket window, she turned slightly, pointing to her bags lying in the dust before glaring at the man atop the stage, and with another jab of her finger, proclaiming him the villain.

Watching the scene transpiring across the street, Charles had to agree with the idea he was lucky to be present.  No one he was acquainted with could hold a candle to the fine boned, yet curvy blonde with a rosebud mouth, tiny waist and breasts which could fill a man’s hands nicely.  Oh, yes, things were definitely looking up.  He tugged at the bottom of his brocade vest before straightened his coat.  With a quick smooth of his hair, he took a step off the board sidewalk before squinting left and then right, an old habit.  One he wouldn’t lose anytime soon.  Resting his hand comfortably on the revolver strapped to his right leg, he checked it, making sure the strap was off as he walked out into the street.

“I said the baggage handler threw my bags on the ground.”  With a huff of frustration, she repeated her question.  “Did you hear me, sir?”  Her voice rang with irritation.  Continuing to point toward the Wells Fargo employee, she did her best to get the ticket clerk to understand, she’d been rudely treated and demanded an apology.  Her chin jutted.  Emphasizing her displeasure, she glared at the bumpkin with her hands fisted on her hips.

Charles had to admit, she cast quite a sight standing there in the noonday sun.

Saturday Ebook Giveaway by Randi Fang

It’s Live! Randi Fang’s second erotic vampire confession interview is live on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She provided a couple of excerpts below for you to explore. (The second one is seriously hot!)

About Tasted (Erotic Vampire Confessions #2)

In Tasted, I was tasked with a spontaneous interview that I didn’t want to deal with. Since my translator, Sim had already volunteered me for the task, I had to proceed with interviewing a vampire couple who were on the run because the newly turned female, Amelia had killed a demon, one of the seven Princes of Hell.

Desire (Erotic Vampire Confessions #1) by Randi FangDesire_1_EVC_alt2

If you haven’t checked out the first story, Desire (Erotic Vampire Confessions #1), you can download it for FREE at the following links: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

In “Desire,” Randi Fang explores this subject what makes a vampire tick with her first vampire to interview, a fan of the fang whom Randi calls simply Rose. Rose has a chance encounter with an actor who plays a vampire and discovers he’s “into” being bitten.

Excerpt from “Tasted”

Interview by Randi Fang with Amelia and Damon, both vampires, madly in love, and on the run.  Recorded May 2, 2013 at an undisclosed location.

Max and I sat for a very long time on the hood of my Porsche SUV.  I knew the two vampires were in the woods, but they didn’t want to appear.  When midnight rolled around and the full moon surfaced behind the night clouds, I knew we’d probably get to meet them.  I drove the vehicle closer to the trees, parking it with the headlights facing out towards the clearing.  We’d be able to see any presence if a demon showed up.  I knew this forest well because I had used it many times for my hunts.  It had a large ravine at the other end.  No demon would climb rocks to make a surprise appearance.  Demons were lazy and not especially bright.

I jumped out of the SUV and opened the front and back passenger doors.  Then I returned to the vehicle.  “Max,” I said as I left my driver door open.  “Get out and stand here by me.  If you smell anything weird, nudge me.  Okay?”

He did as I requested with little hesitancy, glancing back at me with his gleaming gold eyes.

I turned off the engine and the headlights.  The moon was shining, so there was some light illuminating us.  I sighed with relief.  Let’s do this, I thought to myself.  I couldn’t count the creepy ways I had met vampires for interviews.  Some could be as human as the next person, meeting in a bar or coffee shop.  Others, the really old ones, were downright weird.  Ancient, I thought.  That’s what it is.  They don’t know better.  “We need to do this people,” I said to the night.

I saw an image flash out of the corner of my eye.  Someone had hopped into the front passenger seat.  Then another weight shifted the SUV and I felt the back passenger seat fill with a presence.

“Randi?” a male voice asked.

“Yes,” I replied, feeling an overwhelming draw to his masculinity.  He was indeed a vampire, not a demon.  I breathed in slowly.  Dear lord, what have I gotten myself into.

“Sim said you could help us.”

I nodded, not moving my hands from the steering wheel.  I had learned vampires could be very jumpy if they were as panicked as I sensed these two were.  The male sitting next to me seemed very protective.  Very protective.  It flowed off of him in waves.  The female was clearly shaken, confused, and a new vampire.

“Show your fangs please,” the male vampire commanded.

I did as he requested.  The blood flamed in my veins and I felt an immediate attraction to this man without even seeing him yet.  I had heard some vampires possessed a heightened sex appeal, and this guy had it in droves.  Trying to forget a feeling of nakedness that was washing over me, I let my fangs remain visible.  Let’s do this, I shouted in my mind, wondering if the vampire could hear me.  My patience was growing very thin.  We were either going to talk or I was going to jump the man’s bones as the newbie vampire girl could watch.  I exhaled again slowly.  My blood smoothie was just kicking in.

Excerpt from Amelia’s Confession (as part of her interview with Randi) – FOR MATURE READERS ONLY 18+

“What will they do to us if we are caught?”

His brown eyes glazed over.  He turned his attention to my disarrayed dress and gently smoothed the wrinkles away, refusing to answer.

I can fight any demon who gets in my way,” I snapped.

Slowly he moved his hands, giving me a low grunt of disbelief.

As I flattened out the ruffles in my lap, I marveled at how warm his touch was, how satisfying and soothing.

They’ll kill us both if we don’t escape soon enough.

As Damon paused in front of me, I asked him mentally, “So we have to have sex first, you meet your father, and then we can leave.”

Yes,” he replied.  Then he yelled for the others’ benefit, “Get this dress off bitch, my cock can’t wait forever.  Fucking whore of a human.”

He chuckled again, this time with a sincerity he had lacked before.  He glanced at me and winked, pointing at the door.  Then a deadly passion surface in his eyes.  He sighed loudly.  “Are you ready,” he whispered tenderly.

After a few moments, I waited for his next move.  His disposition was unpredictable and I didn’t know if he was going to kiss me on the forehead or break me in half.

“Remove your dress,” he commanded.

Before I could undress, Damon pulled out his large cock, grunting as he began stroking it quickly.  I watched in fear.  Was he going to plunge that thing inside me?  Damon spread his legs, leaning into his strokes and continued jacking himself off.  Suddenly he stopped and approached me.  He pushed his hands pass my dress and found the folds of my pussy.  With one hand, he continued to stroke his cock.  With the other, he fingered me, only stopping now and then to run his wet fingers over the head of his cock.  Damon grunted and growled as he rocked, crouched before me.  His eyes turned blood red as his head fell forward from pleasure, and then he would continue his stroking, getting faster each time.

He was already hard when he had presented himself to me, so I didn’t understand why he was taking the time to increase his erection.  Obviously he did.  And I wasn’t complaining.  Suddenly I was thrilled to watch him.  He was a sight to behold.  No men I knew would be so bold as to touch themselves, much less excite themselves to mind-maddening delights.  It was an exquisitely delightful, yet sinister scene.

Suddenly a vision of having him inside me surfaced.  My jaw dropped open and my stomach flip-flopped.  I remained sitting on the bed as I unzipped the back of my dress and slid it over my shoulders.  When he stood up in front of me, his cock was as hard as glass.  It nearly hit me in the face.  I marveled at its width, its length.  My god, I thought.  Now that’s a vampire.  On the bed, I froze forgetting what I was doing, forgetting I was almost completely nude before this magnificent vampire.

He growled and ripped my dress away in one yank.  Damon took my hands in his and placed them on his cock.  My eyes grew wide and I relished the smoothness of his rod.  He was hard as steel, yet smooth as velvet.
