In the Spotlight - Alicia Nordwell

She's offering giveaway today too! To win a free copy of Pricolici leave a comment and your email address. One winner will be picked randomly and announced at 8 pm PST.

An the winner is: Koozebane!
 

Title: Pricolici 

Publisher: Romance First Publishing 

Genre: MM Paranormal Romance 

Buy Links:

Blurb:
Forced out, Tucker was vulnerable and alone. Betrayed by his haitas, he unknowingly drove straight for Pricolici territory. Their alpha claimed him, as a hultan and his mate. Tucker didn't believe him ... at first. Facing an attack from Stelian's ancient enemy, Tucker found out what he truly was.  

Powerful.
 

Excerpt:

Stelian moved faster than Tucker could see. He pushed Tucker against the wall and pinned him there with one leg on either side of him. His growls vibrated against Tucker’s bare chest, and the soft leather of Stelian’s vest made his nipples harden painfully. 

He was so damn big! Tucker froze as he stared at the lupe's chin. He didn't raise his eyes and kept his chin tucked; he wasn't offering his throat to the male. 

"Do you really want to go?" Stelian asked huskily. 

"Yes." Tucker was panting. The second their skin touched, Stelian's lust hit him as hard as it had earlier. It tightened things in his stomach, but instead of hurting him or making him feel sick like the bartender had he felt… he felt ….  

Shaking his head, Tucker put his hands on Stelian's shoulders. He shoved, trying to push the lupe away, but the large male didn't move. "I do want to leave. Alone. I won’t come back." 

The snarl was loud in his ear. “Unacceptable. I think you want a lot of things, little lupe, but leaving here without me isn't one of them. I can smell your lust, your need. You will be mine and you know it."  

He was half against the door and half against the wall. The small pain of the hinge biting into his lower back barely registered. Tucker’s cock was rigid, almost painfully hard, inside his tight pants. He felt none of the revulsion the other lupes who’d pinned him had made him feel. If anything, he wanted to rub Stelian’s spicy scent all over his body.  

Stelian shoved his face against Tucker's throat, and then ran his nose up the smooth column. The smaller male's head fell back. Tucker didn't realize it at first, but his hands had gone from pressing flat against Stelian's shoulders to curling around them to pull the hot male closer. 

Stelian chuckled, and the sound vibrated against Tucker's skin and made him whimper. One large hand buried in Tucker's reddish gold hair.  

"You want me." 

"No," Tucker moaned.  

"Then why are you rubbing your cock against me?"

 

Bio:  Alicia Nordwell is one of those not so rare creatures, a reader turned writer. Striving to find something interesting to read one day, she decided to write what she wanted instead. Then the voices started ... Yep, not only does she talk about herself in the third person for bios, she has voices in her head constantly clamoring to get out. Fortunately for readers, with the encouragment of her family and friends, she decided for her own sanity to keep writing. Now you can find her stories both free and e-published! Oh yeah, she's a wife, mom of two, and lives in the dreary, yet ideal for her redhead complexion, Pacific Northwest. Except for when she disappears into one of the many worlds in her head, of course!

  2. I love this story. I wouldn't like 12 times. If I had to say anything bad about it I would say it seems like there's another part that's missing.

    1. Hi Sherry!

      The final updated version is over twice as long as before, ending up a tad over 33k. I added quite a few scenes and expanded several others already there. It was a lot of work to enrich the story without damaging the integrity of the storyline but I think, with my editors' help, Pricolici ended up even better than before.

    2. I can't wait to read the new version then. I loved the other version and read it quite a few times on Literotica. Thanks for taking time to answer my question. I'm looking forward to read more of your work.

  4. This was the first story, I think, that I read of Cia's. and it is still one of my favs. the scene above is so freakin' hot :) I can't wait to read the final version which is longer than it was on Lit right?

    I've told Cia too...of all the covers on all the books I've read, I have to say that this one fit for me so well in terms of how I pictured the characters. I think it was really beautifully done. I love the wolf at the bottom too! I only wish we'd get to see farther into their future someday...any chance, Cia

    1. Hi Cannd!

      Always love to hear from you. I think I drove Mika, the cover artist, nuts by rejecting model images for the cover over and over again. Eventually we came to agreement though! She was great.

      Yes, you will get to see farther into the future! One of the reasons Dade's story is taking me so long is that I've been working hard on research for the sequel to Pricolici. I have to do a lot of research, since I am use a lot of elements of places and things I don't know. As I said to someone else, writing the story will probably take me less time than researching for it, lol. Just this week I spent an hour at the library to find 4 books: A History of Eastern Europe, The Tantric Workbook, The New Encyclopedia of the Occult, and The Atlas of the Mysterious in North America.

      I'll let you guys make of those what you will! ;)

  5. I follow cias blog daily even though I know it might not change daily I have to check because I love her stories. My favorite to date is definitely "price of honor" on her gay author site. I was browsing her site and totally fell in love with it. I loved pricolici too. Hoping for a sequel someday...maybe about his other powers? But I still love to read anything she puts out. And don't get me started with "the experiment". Waiting for the next installment of dade's story. witchinreader@gmail.com

    1. Hey maybe even a sequel to "marrying the enemy" on gay author too. That story got me hooked then we don't even find out what happens when he goes to settle into his new home. Anyway there might be more?

      Delete
    2. hi Carrie_Violet: See my answer to Cannd's question above for more details, but yes! :D There will be a sequel to Pricolici.

      There might be Anonymous! I have so many stories I'd like to expand, and so little time to do it all in. That one is on my plate for expansion though I can't say when.

    1. Have you checked out Gay Author's website? I'm a Hosted author on there too, but there are over 2500 free stories on the website. Not all are great, of course, but many of them are really good and definitely worth the price ... free! lol It's a veritable smorgasboard of stories for those with limited ebook funds.

  16. I just recently discovered Cia's stories on Lit. I think I read through the Cathera series over a long weekend. Loved it! I'm very interested in seeing how Pricoli was expanded.

  20. I adore this story. I bought it via Amazon a few weeks ago. Such an amazingly powerful story. I too recommend Gayauthors. There are some really great people bopping around over there. The atmosphere is different from Lit. More literature based. That does not mean that there are not some H-O-T- stories over there. Just more classy. As always, thank you for sharing your blog. It opens up my world when you do. Of course, I must say I am often tempted to shout out " I learned it by reading you." Followed of course by thank my lucky stars! St. Andrew's cross.... Walks away shaking head... :o)

  21. Oh my gosh... I love this story. At least, the original I read... so I can only imagine how much better the longer version is!!!! More super hot and yummy scenes, how could that NOT be better!!!

    I've been following Cia forever it seems. And all of her stories are amazing :)
