Book Tour for Claiming Magique by Tina Donahue (Promo & GIVEAWAY)

Tina Donahue can always be counted on to bring the steam and in her new release, Claiming Magique, there's steam aplenty as a woman who's always disappointed by love finally finds it in a most unexpected place if she's willing to put her heart on the line one last time.  Tina is here today giving us a glimpse of her new book as well as hosting a giveaway just for commenting.  So let's get right to it....

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.

Hunter is 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 ever known.

Reader Advisory: Magique’s sensual journey includes some brief ménage and BDSM elements.


And then, there was Hunt.

She stopped well short of the bed, her body weakening as she recalled his dark blue eyes, long lashes and his teasing comment about Pig Latin. A grin spread across her face, but only because he couldn’t see it.

She didn’t want him knowing how much she enjoyed the memory of his irreverent humor. Something about him excited her too deeply, and it had nothing to do with his potent good looks.

At thirty-two, he was a man in every sense of the word, his broad shoulders and height deliciously masculine. Beneath his well-tailored blue suit and crisp white shirt, she sensed the hard planes of his body…lean yet nicely muscular.

She’d felt his hunger for her when she’d leaned into him. 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.
