let me hear your Bawdy Talk - new release!!


Yay! My sexy new novella Bawdy Talk is now available from Cobblestone Press! http://www.cobblestone-press.com/catalog/books/bawdytalk.htm

A seductive voice. A dare. A night broadcasted for everyone to hear.

Destry Forrester is at the mercy of Trent Sheen’s voice, otherwise known as DJ Zeus, God of Radio. When he speaks, her body reacts. More than once she has gotten off to his sexy bravado. On a dare, she goes to the radio station in nothing but a trench coat, and flashes him.


Trent Sheen gets one heck of a surprise on his birthday when a beautiful woman shows up unannounced, and arouses more than his interest. By chance they meet again and give in to their heated desires. Unfortunately, those desires are broadcasted on air for everyone to hear...

Men and chocolate make for a very Spoiled Candy

Hauntingly sinful pleasures arrive in a unique box of chocolates on Halloween.

Accustomed to getting her own way, Candy finds her married lover's excuse to take his son out for Halloween a final sign that their time together is over. Out of guilt, he buys her a box of chocolate and promises to make it up to her in the morning. With each scintillating treat she consumes, the soul of a man is released. As a reward they offer her a lifetime of personal satisfaction. Whatever, whenever, and however she wants.

Fantasea and Bookmarks!

Fantasea is now available at Fictionwise, and for a short time is 15% off!
http://www.fictionwise.com/eBooks/eBook46778.htm?cached

Among some boxes in her closet, Brianna finds a tattered old book with the name Fantasea on the cover. As she starts to read about the main character, Lorenzo, a man washed ashore after a boating accident, she is hooked, and is magically drawn into the story.Brianna knows it’s all make-believe, but quickly falls for the handsome stranger.

With his quick wit and rugged good looks, it’s a fantasy come true, further proven by a night of mad, passionate love underneath the stars. In the morning, a rescue team arrives on the island to whisk them to safety.

Lorenzo is only too happy to continue their romance back among civilization, but Brianna believes that once they leave, the island magic that brought them together will disappear, and she will too.

Next Floor Naughty!!


Okay - mass confetti is flying around, so you don't want to keep your mouth open or your drinks uncovered. You know there's a party going on up in here ;) lol


I'm stoked beyond words that my first Ellora's Cave book is now available. Yes, I've stared at the homepage for longer than I care to share, and have bruises from pinching myself.


Four floors of erotic pleasure to endure on the Domwaiter – an old dumbwaiter with a kinky flair. Which floor will you stop at?

Next Floor Naughty by Ann Cory available now from Ellora’s Cave http://www.ellorascave.com/productpage.asp?ISBN=9781419910562


Blurb –

Davian arrives at a BDSM party, unsure of what to expect. She loves her fiancé, but the ongoing lack of sizzle in the bedroom raises some serious questions and makes her desperate for answers. Inside the Bentley Mansion, the atmosphere is charged with lurid sex, reminding her of a twisted adult version of Alice in Wonderland. Shown into a hallway, she is told to ride the Domwaiter, an old dumbwaiter with a kinky flair. Four floors of ultimate satisfaction guaranteed, how could she refuse?


When Liam finds the party invitation under Davian's pillow, he questions the validity of their relationship. Refusing to let another man touch the woman he loves, Liam gains access into the mansion and makes a deal with the owner of the house. With his identity a secret, Master Liam meets Davian at every floor.His mission is to make all her fantasies a reality and prove once and for all that he is the only man she'll ever need.

Four floors of erotic pleasure...

Blurb -

Davian Martineik loves sex and craves cock. While her fiancĂ© turns her on and knows how wild she likes it, lately he has fizzled at the end by ignoring her needs. An invitation to a BDSM party at the Bentley Mansion sounds like the perfect way to decide if Liam Montage is husband material and will be the lover she desires. At thirty-years-old, Davian worries that she’ll have to give up the one thing she wants most – a mind-blowing orgasm that sends her through the roof.

Liam finds an invitation to a BDSM party addressed to Davian and wonders why it was hidden. Suddenly he questions his masculinity and performance in bed. Since when did she sneak off to have sex with other men, and how long has it been going on? He’d been under the impression their sex life was something other people only dreamed about. Liam decides to follow her and comes up with a plan. He will show her what she’ll be giving up by going with another man.

Davian arrives at the Bentley Mansion unsure of what to expect. The atmosphere is charged with lurid sex and it reminds her of some twisted adult version of Alice in Wonderland. People are dressed in eccentric costumes, serving strange colored drinks, and the maze-like rooms make her dizzy. She is shown into a hallway by a man in a dark robe and told to ride the “domwaiter” down through the mansion, an old dumbwaiter with a kinky flair.

Liam isn’t about to let another man touch the woman he plans to marry. He makes a deal with the owner of the house and with his identity a secret, meets Davian at every floor. His mission is to make all of her fantasies a reality and prove he is the only man she’ll ever need.

And if all that isn't enough - my son's birthday is the day after - whew!!!

Secrets, charms, and wearing green

Hi to everyone :) Don't forget to wear some green tomorrow - or I'll be by to pinch you. *snicker snicker*. Well, at least I'll be tossing around pretty green clover confetti I bought from the craft store :)

Yesterday I started a new workout class called Group Hour of Power and I am soooooooo freaking sore I want to cry. It's all done with a weighted bar - lunges, squats, all muscles are worked...and all my muscles are screaming at me right now. The worst part is, I'll be going back on Tuesday for more torture. *sigh*

Secrets in the Annex has been receiving some awesome possum reviews! But seriously, if you like paranormal erotic romances, I do think you'll enjoy this :)

So what all have I been up to? Well - I have submissions with 5 different places, been trying to get well, catching up on some reading (read Blood Secrets by Vivi Anna), writing, and watching movies with the family. I've found that when I'm sick - I laugh at pretty much anything. Good medicine. My motto for March is - lighten up - and we'll see how far I get with it, lol.

I have 2 winners to announce as well - so let me shake up my little name jar. EdgesAngel22 and Christy Jan - CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!! Please send an email to anncory_erotica at yahoo.com with FEB BLOG WIN in the subject line and your snail mail addies. WOOT WOOT!!!

Tomorrow, hubby and I are going to spend the day together, and have a date day. I think we're going to do some wine touring, now that my sniffer is back up and working. We'll probably also go out to lunch, and maybe catch a movie. I want to see: Ghostrider, Music and Lyrics, and Number 23. Anyone seen these? Worth watching? I'm a Drew Barrymore fan, so I know I'll enjoy Music and Lyrics.

I absolutely love this picture. What do you think about it? What do you imagine he is thinking about? I know - it's hard to think right now, isn't it, LOL

Isn't he delicious?! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


My February Newsletter will be out soon. Beginning with this month, I will be posting a sexy aphrodisiac recipe. Starting with my March newsletter, I plan to get my free read going again. It would seem that since the Google changeover, I can't get into my other blog - insert big, deep sigh, nor can I seem to have it recall what password I used for it. I also can't use a pretty template because I don't know how to install it thanks again to Google. Really, I was happier with it the way it was. LOL


Okay - don't forget about the blog contest. For more details be sure to scroll down to last week's post. And see!!!! I'm posting :) *tossing confetti*

From Desk to Dawn and Secrets in the Annex

Waving hello from behind a big time mess of paperwork and "due now" notices - sigh. My attempt to update my blog more didn't quite happen, so I've slapped my wrists and pledge, promise, vow, plan on to do better this month.

Let's see - what have I been up to? Mainly work, a little play, some walks outside while the sun has been out, but mostly work. The muse has gotten bit by the creative bug and become very bossy.

New Contest Announcement for February - you'll want in on this :)

What have you guys been up to? Doing anything exciting? I've been doing a little early spring cleaning - I get that way right after it starts to warm up, a need to slough away junk and have things neat and tidy. The feeling doesn't last very long though, lol. My desk has actually stayed clean for a week now, I believe that is a record.

Hmmm, so I can hear your thoughts, and you're wondering when I'm going to announce the winner from last week's blog. Go ahead, admit it :) Since you're twisting my arm, I'll do that now. I put your names in my M&M dish - that isn't for M&M's anymore - it's for yogurt covered raisins, which in my mind is healthier, though not really any less in calories. Hey - babysteps, ya know? LOL. Since my son is home from school today and tomorrow due to report cards coming out on Monday - I'll get him to pick a name.
Blog Winner for the 2nd half of January is: PRINCIPESSA!!! Please email me at anncory_erotica at yahoo.com with BLOG WIN in the subject line, which book you'd like(Drinyian or Blame the Rain), and be sure to send your snail mail addy so I can send you a book thong.

New February Blog Contest - as I've done in the past it will be broken up into 2 contests. The first starts today and runs until the 14th. The second starts the 15th and runs until the 28th. You know, it's bad enough the months just race by, but then you add a very short month into the equation and I really have no hope of ever catching up *shakes head*.
So here's the skinny on the contest. Post on my blog and you're automatically entered, it's that easy! What can you win? For February I'm giving away an ebook copy of A Pirate's Treasure Anthology or Best of Torrid Teasers Vol. 1, and a book thong. I happen to adore book thongs and can't have too many - I don't know about you. So post away! First winner will be announced on the 15th, the second winner will be announced March 1st

Have you seen my sexy Ellora's Cave cover for Next Floor Naughty? If not - here ya go. I'm a proud mama :)

Hot tushy or what??!! I love the way the red stands out *BG* For the blurb and excerpt, please click here: http://www.anncory.com/eCave.htm

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
The hunk below is looking out the window - describe to me what he is looking at (ie. You, showering naked outside) and the most creative answer will get a little present from me :)
Oh - you want to see the hunk - naughty naugty! Here he is:

Well, it's getting close to lunchtime here, so I better get some more work done. Be sure to sign up for my contest - who doesn't want an Ellora's Cave calendar? Look for my newsletter to be out later next week with a couple new things - and I'll be posting I SWEAR on Tuesday again!

Have a great rest of your week!

Your Literary Forecast - Snow(bound) and (Blame the)Rain

Waving hi to all my favorite people! Sorry I'm a day late in posting but the weather has been a pain in the butt and I'm up to my eyeballs in work. Somewhere I lost a few hours yesterday, even when I stayed up late. Unfortunately, I've done too many late nights and I'm paying for it today - I don't feel good :( I'm not a winter girl and we've been having snow and ice - and I'm not very pleased about it.

I'm also trying to work this new Google-ized blog out. I'm used to typing in html, and now you can just type links - so I'm trying to make it harder than it really is. The picture thing also seems to give me some difficulty - but I'll get it sooner or later.

But enough of that sour puss business - what's everyone up to? It's dang cold around here! I had to put socks on this morning, and I'm not a sock person. I like my feet free. It's the weirdest thing, but I can't sleep with socks on. Anyone else like that? I sleep with my feet sticking out of the covers. I think it's because I'm claustrophobic - don't like to be all tucked in either or I feel trapped. I actually have all kinds of strange quirks and phobias - I don't recommend them at all. ;)

I watched The Illusionist the other day and really enjoyed it! I just sat back and enjoyed it - very well acted and directed. I'm not usually an Edward Norton fan, but he played the role well - a very different one for him. Mainly the family and I have been watching a lot of Indie movies as of late. I find them better acted and with a lot more substance. Some gems we've run across are:
In America, Little Miss Sunshine(what a riot), The House of D, Mean Creek, and Man in the Moon(this one is with Reese Witherspoon). I highly recommend them all - though Mean Creek is not a feel-good movie, but if you have teenagers, I think it's a smart one to watch.

So let's see - what news do I have for you. My January newsletter is out. Hopefully if you signed up for it you've received it. Sometimes it goes to the spam folder/bulk mail - so be sure to check that if you didn't get it yet.

What else...Oh I received a great review for Blame the Rain:

Rave review from Joyfully Reviewed
Blame the Rain is a sweet and spicy romantic tale that speaks to the hope that lives in us all; that we can find our soul mates, no matter the odds. The sex scenes are hot and emotional and the story is just full of all the emotion of a couple who discovers their soul-mate by accident and finally allows themselves to trust and believe. This is a great romantic story I’m sure I’ll reread in the future.~Reviewed by Maura

*tosses confetti*

Also out is Best of Torrid Teasers Vol. 1 from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid with my short story Snowbound. For an excerpt, please go here: http://www.anncory.com/bestoftt.htm

And before I forget, I also had my short story Fantasea accepted by Forbidden Publications. Here's a blurb for ya to get you in the mood:

Among some boxes in her closet, Brianna finds a tattered old book with the name Fantasea on the cover. As she starts to read about the main character, Lorenzo, a man washed ashore after a boating accident, she is hooked, and is magically drawn into the story.

Brianna knows it’s all make-believe, but quickly falls for the handsome stranger. With his quick wit and rugged good looks, it’s a fantasy come true, further proven by a night of mad, passionate love underneath the stars.

In the morning, a rescue team arrives on the island to whisk them to safety. Lorenzo is only too happy to continue their romance back among civilization, but Brianna believes that once they leave, the island magic that brought them together will disappear, and she will too.

Now, I did get my cover for Next Floor Naughty - my very first book from Ellora's Cave, but I can't post it just yet. Once I get the OK - you bet I'll be sharing it :) I'm totally stoked!! It's very sexxy ;) Yes, I know - I'm a terrible tease!!!

Question of the week:
If you were stranded in the snow somewhere and could wish for a dogsled pulled by 4 gorgeous and hunky men to get you to safety - who would the 4 men be? They can be musicians, models, actors, artists - you name it. 4 men who will gladly brave the snow to rescue you - and yes they'd be nekkid!

Here's one of my choices:

Time for a little drumroll please! Winner of first part of my January blog contest is: KERRI1973!!! Please email me at anncory_erotica at yahoo.com(w/o spaces) with BLOG WIN in the subject line, and which ebook you'd like a copy of: Blame the Rain or Drinyian. Also include which format (PDF or HTML) you prefer and include your snail mail addy so I can send you a pretty book thong!

Remember, you can still win an ebook and book thong - the second part of the contest starts today! Blog on any post from today until the 31st of January and you are eligible!

A Pirate's Treasure Anthology is sailing your way and will reach Port on January 20th! The intoxicating(not intoxicated - very important) crew consists of myself, Jaden Sinclair, Teresa Wayne, and Cara North.

Here's the blurb from my story Sex Marks the Spot:

An evening aboard an exotic cruise ship turns into a nightmare for Charlotte Alderman. Cold and wet, she makes her way ashore what appears to be a deserted island, until she runs into a devastatingly handsome stranger with a sword. The last thing she needs is to fall for some ill-mannered pirate who only has gold and jewels on his mind.

Captain Phineas Parr gets quite a surprise when he comes across a beautiful lass draped over the very spot he plans to dig for buried treasure. Convinced she is a spy working for his archenemy, Fowler, he decides to keep an eye on her, though to look at her is more of a pleasure than a pain.

As Charlotte helps search for the hidden booty, she discovers that adventure has been missing in her life, while Phineas realizes that love can be the greatest treasure of all. The only thing standing in their way is a murderous pirate with a score to settle.

Happy New Year from Ann!!!

Happy New Year everyone - welcome to 2007! I apologize for being a bit late on my updates - but I'm still getting over the holidays, lol. I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and New Year's - and that you and your family are safe and happy.

I have a slew of goals this year that I intend on accomplishing - one of which is better organization. I've fixed up my desk and have equipped myself with all kinds of tools to help me stay organized. I'll let you know if I have any kind of success in sticking to it, lol. I have an on and off again relationship with organization.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If you have any tips on how to stay organized - I'd love to hear!

Either today or tomorrow I need to take some time out to put away all the holiday decorations - which means then cleaning up the closet they all go into. That whole throwing stuff in there and then quickly closing the door before something falls thing - it's just not the way to go. Yes, I'm guilty of doing that - but only in that closet - I swear. lol

What have you all been up to? Was there one gift that was extra fantabulous that you received? Hubby really went above and beyond and gave me a beautiful butterfly diamond necklace and matching earrings. He got in trouble for how much he spent - but it's not like I could stay mad for long, they are breathtaking! My second favorite gift was a beautiful butterfly box - all sparkly and gorgeous from my son. The guys in my life know exactly how to make me smile :) *BG*

Also - thank you for all the wonderful Christmas cards - they were all so beautiful! I love cards :)

I think it's time for a little steam - don't you? How does this hottie rate with you? On the steam meter where do you think he belongs? 1 for Fizzle or at a 10 for Full Steam Ahead?

Because it's January - that means I have a new contest up at my website: Love Me Tender! For all the details on how to win a gift basket filled with romance in mind, be sure to click here: http://www.anncory.com/contest.htm

I suppose I should announce the winner of my December blog contest: What do you think? I'm sensing a lot of head nods - so I better get to it. The winner of a beautiful book thong and a copy of either Holiday Voices or Seducing Santa is - DENA!!! Please email me at anncory_erotica@yahoo.com with BLOG WIN in the subject line, along with your snail mail addy and which book you'd like! Congratulations Dena :)

I wanted to thank everyone for the nice comments you left in my last post about loved ones who have passed away. It was tough this year, but I still celebrated my mom - so even though she wasn't physically with me, she was there in spirit, and it allowed me to remember all the good times we shared. Your thoughtfulness and sincerity was very much appreciated and gave me warm fuzzies. Thank you.
