Tina Donahue's "Claiming Magique"

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Seven Sexy Scribes for having me as a guest today. A special thank you to Katalina Leon!

Claiming Magique , Book One in my Appointment with Pleasure series for Ellora’s Cave is highly erotic and romantic. The perfect combination IMO.  J
Here’s the cover, blurb and a brief excerpt to give you an idea of the plot.
I’m also offering a contest – the tour winner will have her choice of THREE of my backlist ebooks. So, read on!! And leave comments at each of my stops (check my blog daily for details: ) for your chance to win! The more comments, the better your chances.

Claiming Magique
Book One – Appointment with Pleasure series
Tina Donahue

A man at the center of power…a woman who won’t be ruled…
They call her Magique.

Sought out by the District’s elite, she’s no ordinary call girl, deciding who will pleasure her for the evening. Her preference is for several men at once. Games of bondage and submission heighten her arousal and desire to have a strong male take her…to be adored.
Lobbyist Hunter Prescott was only looking for a good time, not a woman who unleashes a hunger so deep it changes his world. He won’t stop until Magique is his alone, a prisoner of his lust, powerless against his growing need for her body and heart.
With this man, resistance isn’t allowed. For this woman, he’ll create a world of sensual delight and yearning like none she’s known. Proving that only with trust and true surrender will she find unparalleled rapture.

She’d felt his hunger for her when she’d leaned into him. His cock had thickened, becoming even harder against the seam of her buttocks. He’d accepted her weight, seeming to require it.

Such a pleasant moment, she’d had to restrain herself from making it even better, turning into him, running her fingers over his bristly cheeks, rich mouth and dark brown hair, so thick and wavy a woman would be hard pressed not to bury her face in those locks. His bronze skin radiated heat. His expression was unashamed, eager for whatever came next. He wanted it all and then some. Beneath his passion, she’d seen something else for a moment. Jealousy at her attention to his friends?

The question was why and had everything to do with his ego rather than any feelings he could possibly have for her. They were strangers and would continue to be so. Tonight wasn’t about an emotional connection that could turn out bad. She’d learned the danger of that unending hurt in the past. The coming hours would focus on pleasure and he, even more than the others, would see to everything she required. A man taking her without restraint, yet conceding to her demands.

Confident of her power, she continued across the room. Antique wall sconces lit the ample space, creating pools of cozy yellow light. The walls were as pale as the winter sun, the fireplace of white marble, the vintage Italian nightstands painted cream, which made the bed seem a bit more colorful. Canopied and of an ornate brass design, it had diaphanous beige fabric draped over the top, which cascaded down each gleaming post.
It was also specially designed, wide enough to fit up to six adults.
Turning, she leaned against the slatted footboard, hands behind her back, facing the men.

Hunt stopped a few feet from her, his tie unknotted, his collar’s top button undone. He’d been leading the way with Tim next and David, sweet David, bringing up the rear. They gaped at her full breasts, the curve of her hips, the dark curls between her legs, trimmed short so the contours of her cunt were visible, the pubic hair no more than a smudge against her fair skin.

She arched her back, giving them a show, unmindful of the room’s windows, DC beyond. No one outside could see her. The heavy drapes precluded it. These men were her only audience. They watched a lock of hair slide over her shoulder and slip past her breast, stopping just above her cunt. Their hungry expressions fed her carnal need. She kept her desire hidden, choosing instead to make a demand.
“Tie me to the bedpost, then strip. Force me to watch you. To anticipate…to want. The one who finishes before the others takes me first.”
