Make Me Wet

Make Me Wet
by Nara Malone



Seven tears cast upon the water summon the selkie, summon seal across the ocean, summon man from beast—liquid keys to break the curse. Freed one night every seven years, Ronin is doomed to repeat that cycle into eternity. Unless he can find a woman powerful enough to resist a selkie’s irresistible pheromones and sex magick.

Maille believes she lost reality between Maine and New Mexico. Between where she is now and where she should be. She believes in facts, not magick. But facts can’t explain how she wound up naked on a beach with the sexiest man she’s ever laid eyes on. Or how she knows in her bones that losing herself in the passion Ronin offers is a path to disaster.

It’s going to be a long, hot, wet night. Caught between sex magick and a sexy selkie, disaster is inevitable for Maille. To break the enchantment she has to rely on the oldest magick of all—the power of love-drenched hearts.


Excerpt Two:

Copyright © NARA MALONE, 2013

Ronin continued holding his breath. He’d hold it into eternity to bring her closer. The scent of her was a blend of wild and feminine that ignited desire like whiskey poured on a banked fire. There was no holding back the surge of blood and heat thickening his cock. But his shy little sandpiper found her courage. He nearly swallowed his tongue when her lips closed over his to steal a kiss.

It was so easy. Too easy?

Slick, sexy curves surfed his skin. Soft female sounds—more seductive than a mermaid’s song—quivered in her throat. His hands found her ass and squeezed, turning up the volume on her love music. Trailing one hand up her back to cup her head, he deepened the kiss.

She tasted fragile, an aura of the earlier tears lingered.

He tried to slow her down, ask her name, but his tongue tangled with her hers and it came out like a sea lion grunting.

The initial stage of getting acquainted couldn’t be rushed. His last intended had zapped him with a Taser when he’d tried to join her via her bedroom window. She dialed the police while he twitched like a beached cod on her bedroom floor. Mercifully, the Goddess Mere intervened. If the word mercy could be applied to anything she did. Before the call had gone through, her spell cast him back to the bottom of the ocean.

Her intervention canceled his shore leave before it had gotten started, sentencing him to fourteen years without a woman rather than the customary seven. He wanted inside this woman with a desperation that wasn’t good for either of them.

The last mistake had harmed no one but Ronin. This time a mistake could break his intended. There’d been too many broken women in his worthless life.

Ronin needed to get control.

Of the sex.

And the magick.

            1. I write because...

It’s the only way to silence the voices in my head.

2. What kinds of characters are your most favorite to write about and why?

I love writing shifters, alpha male meets alpha female with primal passion barely leashed.

3. Plotter or panster?

A little of both. I do a rough sketch of where I want a story to go and then I turn the characters loose on the page and see where they take my ideas. With Make Me Wet I set myself a big challenge. I had an erotic romance and two characters who for reasons both primal and magical, would not be able to resist each other. Then I threw in the tiny obstacle that if Ronin was cursed to remain a Selkie for eternity unless he could find a woman who could resist him. I didn’t know how they would overcome and that challenge made this one of the most stressful but fun books I have ever written.

4. If I were your favorite cookie, what flavor would I be?

A chocolate chip cookie with macadamia nuts still soft and warm from the oven, chocolate scented steam rising from its core as I invade with fingers and tongue.

5. Heels or flats?

Flats--running shoes more often than not.

6. What was the toughest scene you've ever written and why?

Sex scenes are always the hardest to write. Love scenes are the place where characters go skin to skin, nothing between them but the raw core of who they are. It’s where what they desire, and what they are afraid to desire do battle. In erotic romance the sexual journey generates the character growth. All that said, when it came to writing the love scenes for Make Me Wet, there was so much riding on those interactions: life at stake, hearts at stake, eternity at stake, and the genre promise that I could deal with all that and make it a smoking hot read at the same time. My overachieving, puzzle-loving brain threw down a challenge I had to meet in layers, going back over the scenes many times to get each element just right.

7. What was the spiciest scene you have ever written?

Some readers insist the lucky librarian game scene I wrote in Snatch Me is hottest scene they’ve read, but others say it was the candle scene in Blind Heat. It’s a close vote. My four crit partners are evenly divided. If you get a chance to read them, email me and tell me which is your favorite. ;-)

8. What's next on your writerly horizon?

A game book or what some call a choice book. While I manage to sneak a bit of interaction into all my stories, such as the ice cream recipe that plays out across the scenes in The Dungeon Gourmet, I want to bring that interactivity into the telling of the story. I’m going to do a choose-your-own-adventure style story and I can’t say more than that because I’m negotiating on several options.

I wrote the story for the G-rated adventure game, Spirit Walkers: Curse of the Cypress Witch released by Orchid Games. It hooked me on bringing more game to storytelling.There’s something I love about merging storytelling with reader choice. I want to give readers a chance to lean in as they read rather than just lean back. I want them to be a co-protagonist and have an influence on the choices that will resolve the story problem. For erotic romance, I love the idea of setting erotic choices for readers to explore.
