Working for a Living

I'm busy working on the next edition of Princess Slave. It's hot and fun. I've survived standing in line to vote, Halloween with the kids, but I got sick when I walked in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. I'm still coughing and hacking.

Sara Thacker's Smooth Lies in Print This Week

Smooth Lies releases this week in print on October 17th.

Here's an excerpt.

Prologue

March, Black Sea, off the coast of Romania



"You won't need those tags where you're going," Riker said. Drops of tobacco juice ran down his chin and dripped onto Jake's chest. Jake Henley wanted to reach up and smack the bastard, but the bindings on his wrists prevented him from doing a lot of things he wanted to do.

Riker twisted the chain, forcing the metal to cut into Jake's skin, abrading his flesh. One more scrape wouldn't make a difference after they dumped him overboard. Riker growled and yanked at the tags. They broke free, dropping Jake's head to the deck of the small speed boat. His commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Amos Riker, sneered as he stuffed the dog tags into his front pocket. Waves splashed over the deck of the boat, chilling Jake to the bone.

Riker pulled Jake to his knees. Pain traveled up Jake's legs to his spine. Shit, he'd been beaten, but he wasn't beat. Riker's abuse couldn't turn him against his country. Money hadn't worked and neither would the threat of death.

"Anything you want me to tell your wife?"

Jake's throat went dry. His mind swam. Sophia knew nothing about his work, but defending her wouldn't save her. He'd learned the hard way after a week of intensive interrogations and beatings had left him with one eye swollen shut and a heavy concussion. The skin around his eye would heal if he lived, but he'd never forget the look on Riker's face when Jake told him to go to hell.

The boat rocked and Jake pitched to the deck. Pain shot up his side as Riker delivered a swift kick. Bile rose in Jake's throat. He gagged and his stomach clenched painfully but nothing came up.

"It's time. Andre, do the honors."

Andre moved forward, grasping Jake by the back of his shirt and lifting him from the deck. Andre spat in Jake's face. "I'm going to have fun with your wife."

Jake felt it rising, the rage he'd held in check for seven days. Andre's words were just another tactic, but one that worked. Jake's blood boiled. "No. You fucking bas..."

Andre's knee connected with Jake's chest, draining the air from his lungs. Jake sagged against Andre. An eerie calm settled over the boat and the hair on the back of Jake's neck stood on end. His feet lifted off the deck, and for a moment he hung over the water. An explosive breath drained the air from his lungs as an icy spray hit his face and chest.

Jake closed his eyes and said a quick prayer for Sophia. She knew nothing about the device he'd developed. Riker had it wrong, but he couldn't change the bastard's mind. Sophia was exceedingly intelligent and a damn good engineer, but she wasn't his partner on this project.

"Did you get the rope tight enough?" Riker asked

"Trust me," Andre said in a voice sounding like Jake's own.

Princess Slave is Out

It's been an interesting ride and now it's out.

Princess Ava Timna is prisoner of the king of Zebulun, doomed to become his sex slave. Escape means certain death but staying only delays the inevitable—the loss of her virginity. To her people, her virginity is sacred, something to be treasured and given as a gift to her future husband. Wedding King Ean isn't an option as he's rough, known for defiling women and casting them aside. She expects abuse and harshness at his hands, yet his gentle touch leaves her breathless and aching for more. Could she be attracted to him?

King Ean of Zubulun has a secret—he’s actually Jaron, Ean's identical twin on a mission to restore order and honor to the planet he loves. Keeping Ava prisoner weighs on his conscious. Returning her to her people would blow his cover and result in their deaths. Keeping her means giving in to the lustful fire burning in his loins, knowing all the while he's lying to the one woman he wishes could be more than his princess slave.

Princess Slave
can be purchased from the Wild Rose Press.

Good Canvas?

Body painting isn't something that you show everyone but some people take it to the extremes. I don't think I would want to parade around with only my body paint covering me up. For one thin, I think it would itch. But you never know. Maybe the paint isn't so bad. I'm not sure if the body paint runs or not. Would you smear if you bumped into someone? Hmm, it's something to think about.

So what do you think of these?


This is my favorite one. Then next two are good, but the pouring water picture makes the paint job.




Here's an alternative. I don't think I would like walking around like this though. A bit too Naked for me. Here is another place that is more in line of art.

So what do you think?
