A Moment with Jorja Lovett


Tell the readers a little about yourself.

My name is Jorja Lovett and I live in rain-drenched Ireland. My way of keeping warm is to write steamy love stories with a paranormal twist. Pyramid of Passion, is my debut novella with Breathless Press.

As an author, do you take time to read? If so, what do you like to read and who is/are your favorite author/s?

I love reading and I probably buy books like some women buy shoes. I don't have a particular author I prefer, if it's a good story I'll read it! And the hotter the better!

How do you stay motivated when the Muse is uncooperative?

My muse can be a stubborn so-and-so at times and I need a little time out when this happens. A long drive in the countryside can usually tease him out ;)

If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic getaway, what would you do and where would you go?

Right now, I would settle for a private island with no distractions and peace to get on with writing. I love the sound of the sea, it's very relaxing, so I think somewhere on the beach with my own cabana boy would suit me just fine.

What is the hardest thing for you to write?

A lot of my stories have a historical element to them, and while I enjoy writing the scenes, all that research to get there is hard work!

If you could live the life of one of your characters who would you be?

I definitely like the idea of having Rosie Carter's life, my heroine in Pyramid of Passion. Who wouldn't want to be transported back to Egypt for fantastic sex with a well-endowed warrior?!?

The tag line on my blog is ‘Indulge Your Inner Romantic.’ What do you do to indulge?

A long bubble bath is my way of indulging in some quality 'me' time. Preferably with chocolate and a hot partner…

What do you like to write about the most? The least?
The first kiss. I love the build-up of sexual tension and I do like to tease before the main event.
I don't enjoy writing sad scenes. Of course, every now and then we have to torture our characters but I always like a happy ending.

Thanks for having me today. I'll leave you with a little teaser Of Pyramid of Passion…enjoy!
Blurb
Rosie Carter starts her night shift at the museum by finding her secret crush, security guard Nick, screwing a redhead in the office. Running from her attraction to him, she distracts herself with the newly acquired Ancient Egyptian exhibit. The Gold of Valor catches her eye--a pendant bestowed on Pharaoh's soldier, Edifu. Its mystical powers transport her into the bedroom of the man himself who thinks she's a gift from the gods and worships her with his mouth, his tongue...
 
She discovers the joy of sex and a new found confidence with her hunky warrior and she's caught between her fantasy life and dull reality. When Nick starts to show his true feelings towards her, Rosie has to decide what it is she really wants.
Excerpt
"Hmm. Your strange attire would indeed appear ineffective armor for the Goddess of War. If you are not the Goddess herself and she has not sent you, then perhaps Qadesh? Such a gift from the Goddess of sexual pleasure would surely increase a mortal's prowess on the battlefield tenfold." He drew a thick fingertip from the hollow of her throat to the zipper on her smock. Rosie had gone from Goddess to sex toy in one fell swoop.
That channel of need Nick's earlier performance opened up now swelled within her at another's touch. Adrenaline buzzed through her eradicating rational thought and she clung to facts where she could find them. "You're a soldier?" she asked.
"Yes. In King Rameses' Army." He rasped the zipper up and down in wonder, exposing and covering her goose-pimpled skin until she wanted to rip the damn thing off herself.

When she set aside the pleasures of her flesh for a moment, the importance of his words filtered into her brain. His obsession with the simple metal fastener of her top coupled with the exotic dreamscape forced her to ask the question, "What is your name?"

"Edifu." With one final tug, he unzipped her uniform and pushed it from her shoulders.
Okay! If, somehow this whacky set-up could possibly be real, was she really ready to leap into bed with the first Ancient Egyptian soldier to try it on with her?

Large hands cupped her breasts through the white cotton of her bra. When he bent to kiss her full on the mouth, she gave herself over to the moment. If, on the other hand, this was all fantasy, why deny herself a starring role?

"By the Gods, you are a true beauty." His husky voice on her lips commanded a rush of liquid desire to flood south.
How long since a man paid me a compliment? Kissed me with such reverence? Too long. She returned the passionate kiss with interest; let her hands explore the broad expanse of warrior chest available to her.

The humidity of the night combined with the radiating heat between their responsive bodies, soon became too much to bear. Besides, she couldn't wait until Eddie here figured out the complexities of the modern bra clasp. Under his lust-filled watch, Rosie divested from the remainder of her clothes.
He took a step closer and she shivered in his shadow. Masterful male fingers palmed her uncovered breasts, his sun-kissed skin in relief against her porcelain complexion, and stroked a thumb across her nipple. It stood to attention and he rewarded it by sealing his mouth around the pink tip. Gasps of delight seeped from her when he suckled and his tongue joined in the courtship.

Powerful arms lifted her and carried her over to the bed to lay her on the virginal white linen sheets. Totally at his mercy, she was enjoying every sinful second. For however brief a spell, she would revel in her womanhood and experience this man with pure abandon.

She reached for his granite-hard cock. He caught her searching hand and pinned it to the bed above her head. With a sensual smile he started a slow descent along her body, marking a path with a trail of wet kisses. Starting with her mouth, he moved down the center of her body, diverting only to pay homage to one unattended breast. Goddess or not, soldier boy seemed intent on worshipping her.
