Sunday 30 October 2011


Hey ladies! I got something special for you! Thanks to my girl, Benita we have the hot and sexy LEE KHOLAFAI with us today! Everyone scream!!

You may have seen him around. He's in Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hookup" music video. Check it out!

Alright, alright, enough teasing. Let's do this!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to chat with us today! Under the Covers is thrilled to have you!

My pleasure.

Who is Lee Kholafai? Tell us five things about yourself that people would not know. 
1. I'm from Alabama.
2. I like to freestyle.
3. I have a pitbull named Titan.
4. My childhood dream was to be in the NFL
5. I'm a scorpio

Tell us about your first break into the world of modelling. Was it easy for you? Were you nervous? 
It was all by chance really. I got scouted while vacationing in Miami but I didn't pay it any attention because my focus was football. I then broke my ankle and decided to give it a try. I've been fortunate enough to book work so it hasn't been too hard. I think my southern charm helps haha. I was definitely nervous my first couple of shoots but after doing it a while, posing became second nature lol

Is it easier to have a love life as a model? 
Hmmm, well with the model discounts I suppose haha. Its definitely helped me experience life in a more diverse way with all my traveling. I've learned so much by living in different countries and that, I am very thankful for.

What’s the best thing about your job? What’s the worst?
The best thing is the food on set ( I LOVE to eat) and the traveling. The worst is being away from my family and friends. Oh yea, the worst is also having to stay in shape year round and having to say no to chocolate cake if I have a job the next day haha.

What has been the oddest thing you have had to wear during a photoshoot?
A huge scorpion on my face!!! It was crazy!!! The zookeeper was there but still. I was freaked out because it still had its stinger and was crawling all over my nose and lips. I'm happy I survived that one lol

What made you want to act and is this something you’ve wanted to do for a long time?
Well, I did my first acting job and I literally fell in love. In acting, I get to show who I am as a person and bring a character to life. In modeling, I'm posed so a lot of times you can't see who I am as a person.

We have casted you in the role of a sexy centuries-old vampire (essentially, the true Dracula) who is also pyrokinetic . How would you feel about playing that role? (You can check out post here.)
Hmmm. sounds dangerous!!!! I like it haha!!!!

What are some of your hobbies?
I play football, hike, and enjoy boxing.

It is to my understanding that you prefers Pits over other dogs, is there a particular reason why? 
Well, they are big lovable babies who are actually very smart,loyal and goofy. I hate the way they are stereotyped and banned so I love being able to spread awareness that they are an amazing breed. Also, I think I'd be a pit if I was a dog haha.

And this is the question that all the ladies want to know the answer to: How would you woo a woman? 
Hmmm, make her laugh. At least, I hope that works haha.

Time for the rapid-fire questions!
Fave food? Chicken & Waffles!!!!
Fave drink? Root Beer!!!!
Beach or Mountains? Beach
Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset
Single or taken? Complicated haha
Boxers or briefs? Boxer briefs!!!!

Stalk Find Lee on:

Special thanks to Lee for being so awesome and chatting with us. Thanks to Scott for the video. And most of all to Benita who fuels my Lee obsession. Yes, I'm blaming you. ;P

Author Override: Stacey Kennedy

Author Override is the place where authors take the reins and take you on a journey into their world. Some may allow you into their private writing dens. Others may take you along with them on research trips or interviews. Whatever the case may be, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because here you’ll get an in-depth look into an author’s musings.

WOOT! I’m thrilled to be back here at Under the Covers to share my latest release, BIND ME, and give away the book! So let’s get right into it and chat about one of my favorite elements in this book. Ropes!

Do I have your attention now?

While writing this story, I knew almost immediately that Marley, although new to BDSM, was going to take an interest in being bound. And boy-oh-boy, I’m so happy that she did, because Reed is a man who knows his way around ropes.

Even though, I thoroughly enjoyed writing the sex scenes—and I did—the one scene in this book that I found undeniably sexy was the way Reed bound her. The confidence he possessed while he tied the knots, wound the rope around her wrists, and in turn, bound her arms behind her back…had me searching out my husband!

As always with BDSM books, for me, it’s not so much the act of using toys or such that makes the story so hot, but it’s the knowledge that the dom carries that I find utterly sexy. And Reed gave me so many moments like this in the story. The man is drool worthy!

So, is you’re curiosity piqued? If so, leave a comment with your email address to be entered to win a copy of BIND ME. Don’t forget to come find me on Facebook and Twitter. I love to chat!!

Four best friends embrace their fantasies and make a pact of seduction to live out their deepest and darkest desires. The women place their lives in the hands of fate and one short straw declares Marley will be the first to awaken her secret wishes.

Reed, a Dom at sex club Castle Dolce Vita, has lived the BDSM lifestyle for a while, but has yet to find a submissive that suits him. That is until he meets Marley, a woman seeking to indulge her fantasies.

As Reed guides her through a night of pleasure, Marley brings more to him than a perfect submissive–she stirs emotions in him long ago lost. By binding Marley, he runs up against his own limits, and now he has to choose between his self-protective barriers or surrendering to the wildfire Marley has reignited in his heart.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and elements, including spanking.

Stone walls didn’t give the air of a warm room, nor did the cold cement on the floor, but it set the mood perfectly for the BDSM scene. Reed circled his submissive as she stood atop a wooden box in the center of the bare room.

Zoie was good and obedient. The nipple clamps pinched her areolae hard, just as Reed wanted. He tugged on one to induce a mild amount of pain, and Zoie whimpered, yet not in a way that made him hesitate—she sounded too desperate. Reed had enough confidence to know she needed more than he could give her.

Not every sub Reed played with could tolerate the pain Zoie managed. He enjoyed pushing her limits because she could take the overload. He added two weights to the chain that connected the nipple clamps. Zoie’s gaze burned with desire as she hissed.

"I think I’ll leave you waiting for a while." Reed strode toward the other side of the room. He grabbed the plastic bottle off the metal tray containing the sex toys, and drank the lukewarm water as his gaze scanned the small space. The old American country estate, Castle Dolce Vita, catered not only to BDSM but to all desires.

By day he was a criminal lawyer, but on evenings and weekends, the BDSM floor had become his home since his lifestyle submissive, Samantha, left him two years ago. He’d loved; he’d lost. He wouldn’t make the same mistake again.

Just as he placed the bottle back on the tray, the door to the room opened. “You were looking for me."

Reed glanced over his shoulder to find his good friend and roommate Kole drenched in sweat and running a hand through his blond hair to wipe off the perspiration. Kole punished harder than Reed. Reed used floggers and crops, among other toys, but he refused to make the sub bleed or leave bruises, while Kole delighted in granting such pleasures.

Kole took a quick glance at Zoie before he looked back to Reed with curiosity in his eyes. “What did you want?”

Reed understood his friend’s inquisitiveness—it wasn’t often he called Kole into a scene. “She’s outgrown me, and I think you’d be better suited to her.”

"Sounds interesting.” Kole all but purred. “Tell me about her.”

“She’s got a high tolerance for pain, and I can tell she needs, craves more, but you know it’s not my thing.”

“But it’s mine.” Kole grinned.

Reed held no jealousy, mainly because he’d never had the connection with Zoie to warrant it. If he needed to put his submissive with another dom to satisfy her, he would. No questions asked.

“Well, well. Let’s go have a look, shall we.” Kole stepped over to Zoie. Her breathing hitched when he ran his hand over her hip. He gave her ass a light slap, and Zoie squealed.

Reed settled near her, expected her to focus on him. When she didn’t, he issued a demand. “Zoie, look at me.” He grasped her jaw and squeezed firmly. “Tonight was our last night together.”

She shook her head. He tightened his grip, putting a stop to her disobedience. “Kole will take you on. You’re safe with him. I would not give you to just anyone.”

Zoie’s gaze flickered over to Kole, and excitement lit her eyes. Reed squeezed her jaw again, drawing her attention back to him.

“You’ve been a good girl, and I’ve enjoyed my time with you. I offer you Kole as a reward for how much you’ve pleased me.”

He kissed her cheek. “Be a good girl for Kole too.”

“I will, Sir,” Zoie responded.

Reed stepped away just as Kole slapped Zoie’s ass with another light hit. Her eyes closed, and she moaned. The reaction from her confirmed Reed had done the right thing. He grinned at Kole, and Kole smiled back.

He turned on his heels and proceeded to leave the room. As he opened the door, he heard Zoie’s screams echo against the stone walls. Kole laughed. “I’m going to enjoy you, sweet Zoie.”

The door closed behind Reed, and silence fell around him as he made his way toward the restaurant. He was satisfied he’d done right by Zoie. However, a thought stayed in his mind: what now, and more importantly…who?

He passed through the dining room in the castle, entered the restaurant, and emptiness greeted him. At this late hour, the only other person here was the barkeep. He took a seat on the stool in front of the black marble countertop where the laptop was located, and the bartender handed him his usual choice of beverage, a cold beer.

Reed took a long swig before he clicked the mouse on the laptop to venture into the BDSM forum. He scrolled down the messages and was not surprised at what he found. Woman looking for dom. Slave ready and willing.

Minutes drew on as he read through them, one by one, and nothing jumped out as an interest. Frustrated, he raised his beer to his mouth again, and as the liquid filled his throat, his gaze landed on something that spiked his curiosity.

The seduction pact! Indulge my fantasy!

He placed his beer back on the bar and clicked on the message. First he saw the words but didn’t pay the note any attention because the picture of the woman captured him and stirred his cock.

Her green eyes stood out against the dark, wavy curls of hair surrounding her face. He glanced over to her stats. Five-eight. His cock grew heavier. Reed stood at six-one. He was always looking down on women at an uncomfortable angle. If this woman had heels on, she’d be close to eye level with him, and the thought aroused him.

He scrolled back up to her message to see what the sexy woman had to say.

One woman needing a dom to fulfill her desires of BDSM. Limits unknown but will try new things to discover herself and satisfy the man who controls her.

Reed’s heart pounded. He wanted to be the one to introduce her to BDSM. His reaction surprised him.

He clicked the claimed button at the top of the screen to indicate she had been contacted by a dom and was now off limits. Then he reached into his pocket to grab his cell phone, and after he entered the last number, he placed the phone to his ear.

It rang twice, and then a string of curse words followed by shuffling filled his ear. Reed had expected to receive voice mail. He had not anticipated someone would answer at this late hour. “Hello?

More rustling sounded before a trembling voice answered, “Hello.”

In the background, Reed could hear a couple of women giggling, and he wondered if he had the right telephone number. “I’m looking to speak with Marley Adams. Is she around?”

“Um…er…” The woman cleared her throat. “This is her.”

“I’m Reed Matheson. I’ve seen your profile on the castle’s forum and am interested in arranging a night with you.”

He was met with silence and pulled the receiver away to look at the screen, curious if she had hung up, but the lit screen indicated she hadn’t. He returned the phone to his ear. “Are you still there?”


Reed waited a good thirty seconds before he concluded something was amiss and wondered if maybe this was a joke. “I’m not in the mood to be trifled with. I’d recommend the next time you ladies want to play a game, you choose another method to do it. Good night.”

“No, don’t go.”

The desperation in her voice stopped him. Clearly something else was going on here. If this wasn’t women being drunk and playing around, what could be Marley’s hesitation? Then it dawned on him. “Is the problem because you’re not alone?”


Another round of hushed giggles sounded. “Right. Then I take it you don’t want to discuss this with your friends there?”

“Exactly.” Marley sighed.

That sigh of hers sent a rush of blood straight to his cock. Her voice held a wonderful sensual tone that appealed to him and confirmed he had made the right decision to contact her.

His reaction intrigued him. When had he been so interested in a submissive? Not since his ex-girlfriend and that knowledge sent a ping of pain to his heart, which he flatly ignored.

He wanted to be the one to guide Marley. Something about her made his stomach clench, and the thought of not having her maddened him.

Now understanding that she’d paused because she craved privacy, Reed took another approach. He scrolled back up to Marley’s information, clicked on her e-mail address to open a new message, and attached his profile. “We’ll keep this short then. I’ve sent my details to the e-mail address you’ve provided on the forum. Have a look, and we’ll go from there.”

He heard shuffling again, some whispered arguing, before Marley gasped. “Oh…um…you’re…”

Reed chuckled. He didn’t mind that his looks left her speechless. Hell, hers had done the same to him. “Do you approve?”

“He’s gorgeous,” a woman said, not Marley.

The sound of a slap followed by Marley’s grumble informed him she’d just issued someone a punishment for speaking so loud.

“I’m interested,” was all she said.

That was enough for him. “Read through the castle’s rules and follow them accordingly. It’ll take you around twelve days to get all the documentation you require, so let’s meet two weeks from tonight. Come to the restaurant at the Castle Dolce Vita at seven p.m. When you arrive, you will ask for and always address me as Master Reed. Understood?”

“Mm hmm.”

Her response made him tighten his jaw. “You will answer me with words, not sounds.”

“Okay…sorry. I’ll be there.”

He would rid her of that behavior. He preferred that his submissives to speak forthrightly and for their responses to be clear. “Very well. I look forward to seeing you then.”

A long pause followed before Marley whispered, “Me too.”

Reed waited for her to hang up first, and as her friends in the background laughed, he heard Marley exhale, long and deep. Nervous? Excited?

He could only be pleased he’d gotten to her first. Many Castle Dolce Vita doms would want her, but he’d snagged her. His throbbing cock reminded him he’d gotten lucky tonight.

Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll find fast paced action, life threatening moments and a big bad villain that needs to be destroyed. Her urban fantasy/paranormal and erotic romance series have hit Amazon Kindle and All Romance Ebooks Bestseller lists. If she isn’t plugging away at her next novel, tending to her two little ones, she’s got her nose deep in a good book. She lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband.

Review: Bind Me by Stacey Kennedy

3.5 Feathers
Bind Me
by Stacey Kennedy
(Pact of Seduction # 1)

Looking for a dom who has a special interest and talent with ropes? Reed definitely knows how to use them, as well as other toys and props.

The general idea of this story is 4 friends feel their life is a bit boring and they make a pact to live out their wildest fantasy. Each of them writes down what they want to do and then they draw straws to see who goes first. Marley has to go first, and she wants to be dominated.

They conveniently found a sex club where she can experiment in a safe environment, and Reed zeroes in on Marley. He wants to be the one to introduce her to the lifestyle.

Reed has been burned in the past. His last relationship with a submissive ended up almost two years ago and he hasn't really wanted to be with anyone at that level since. But things change with Marley and he sees the possibility for a future. And that terrifies him.

Reed does push the envelope a bit, at least for me, of pleasure and pain, but for the most part he is pretty sexy. His friend Kole on the other hand, scares the hell out of me. LOL

I can't help but make one comparison while reading this book though. This is basically the same premise as a book I enjoyed Wild, Wicked, & Wanton by Jaci Burton, minus the sex club. But I am looking forward to what the other friends will want to be getting into!

Review: Found by Evangeline Anderson

Found (Brides of the Kindred #4)
by Evangeline Anderson
Sci Fi/Erotica/Romance

This book has raised the inevitable question. Do I need to make a new GoodReads shelf? Although there were only two people in the relationship, Lauren and Xairn, there is his extra cock to consider, do I make a new shelf for those heroes so well endowned that just one cock won't cut it? And what do I call it if I do? I am thinkng two-cock-delight or double-banana-surprise...

But despite the horrible shelf dilemma it has caused I LOVED this book, definitely the best book in the series. This book carries on almost straight away from Sought. Xairn has taken Lauren and himself to get their DNA changed so the AllFather can't find them. But the AllFather is no longer after Lauren anymore, he now wants Xairn back as part of a diabolical plan to gain immortality.

What I loved most about this book? Xairn, I just wanted to cuddle him close to my quivering bosom, then have him put me over his knee and spank for being such a bad naughty girl. I never thought that a grey skinned, red eyed and double cocked alien would ever float my boat, but seriously Xairn floats a whole fleet of my boats and then some. He manages to be vulnrable yet tough and protective; drop dead gorgous yet not realize it and tortured but not whingey. Ode to Xairn (the abbreviated version) is now finished.

Now lets start on Lauren who is by far my favourite heroine in the series. Unlike the other crazy chicks in this series she realizes she loves Xairn quickly and doesn't try and fight it, instead she tries to make her relationship with her warrior work; this endeared her to me massively. I mean I don't get why would you resist being bonded with such perfect men? It irked me in the other books; I wanted to get some serious slappage down with Liv, Sophia and Kat, what is wrong with them? When a sexy, honorable, devoted-to-you alien with a giant love stick knocks on your door (or beams you to his spaceship) you DO NOT run away, you start riding the love train as soon as you possibly can! *takes deep beath* right rant over, back to the book!

As this is an erotica book, I should talk about the sex. Honestly, there isn't as much as you would think, and it mainly occurs towards the end of the book. What Found does is build up the sexual tension between Xairn and Lauren until eventually it explodes. It is hot and it is kinky if you like a little bit of BDSM you will definitely be panting by the end.

This book also continues the story between the Kindred and the Scrouge, led by the AllFather, Xairn's father. I liked this story, it has kept the books in this series tied together and now that this has been concluded, I wonder if there will be anything similar to tie future books together. I know that this was originally supposed to be the last book in the Kindred series but I can see at least the potential for two more books and I really hope thar Ms Anderson continues to write books in the Kindred universe. This has been one of my favourite series this year it is something a little different, romance-erotica-scifi is not something you come across everyday and each book has drawn me in and left me wanting more.

Review: The Wicked West by Victoria Dahl

The Wicked West
by Victoria Dahl
(writing as Holly Summers)

I am so excited that I found this! Victoria Dahl writes this story as Holly Summers. Holly is Molly Jennings alter ego. Molly is the heroine of Talk Me Down. She is a closet erotica writer, and here we get a short novella of Holly's erotic work.

I felt a bit like to nosy neighbors of Tumble Creek having to run out and read about the hot scenes inside Molly's head. And I can't help but wonder if this is the cowboy story Molly was working on while we read Talk Me Down.

But enough of that, let me tell you about this story. It was a hot short read with a touch of kink. You do not have to read Tumble Creek to enjoy it as it has nothing really to do with the series.

Tom Hale is the town Sheriff and neighbor of Mrs. Lily Anders. She's just moved into town from England after he brother left her the house and her husband died a year ago.

And I said kink before. Tom Hale's wife left him years ago because she knew he had a dark side to him he wasn't showing and she wasn't ready to deal with. He likes to dominate, to spank, to tie up and to give a rough and hard ride. But he is so scared of that side of himself he's always hidden it.

Lily on the other hand has only known pleasure with punishment as that is what her husband showed her. She sees that in Hale and is determined to be his, and to please him.

In short, if you are looking for a quick short read that will steam up your ereader then pick this up, you won't regret it. And I really wish Ms. Dahl would put more of these erotic shorts by Ms. Summers. ;)

Review: Deadly Desires by Mackenzie McKade

Deadly Desires
by Mackenzie McKade
(Wicked Reads # 7)
Erotica Sci-Fi

I usually love the Wicked Reads short stories, so I don't read the blurbs anymore, just get them. Because of that I was a bit surprised to find this story was a sci-fi-romance. Totally not expecting that! After the initial shock of the genre I actually got into the story.

This is a lovers reunited tale. Princess Maya had an affair with Shannon Braxton. At the time he was engaged to be married to another. His intended ended up marrying a ruthless czar from another world.

After this czar is suspected of murdering all his previous wives, he now seeks to marry Princess Maya, and her father, in order to save her, has decided to marry her off to Shannon Braxton, who is now King in his world, after the death of his father. Not only to save her from a disastrous fate but as an allegiance between their two worlds.

Maya and Shannon will have to get past their previous issues of her believing she was basically dumped after he took her virginity, all while saving her from an obsessed killer.

"If you could shape shift into anything, what would it be?"

Our Answer:

Ohh hard question, it is a toss up between a wolf or a pretty kitty, on one hand I like to be a traditionalist and go for a wolf, but I have always been more of a cat person.

A black panther... or a jaguar. Kinda weird because I am NOT a cat person (proud momma of a dog) BUT there's just something that calls to me about those two kitties! I really should say that I'd love to shift into my favorite animal (elephant) but that would be soooo unsexy, I had to scratch that idea. LOL ;) Check out my trunk *waggles eyebrows*

A wolf! They are badass! But if not that, then probably a dragon or something like that.

Now it's your turn!!!

If You Hear Her by Shiloh Walker Virtual Tour

4.5 Feathers

  If You Hear Her
by Shiloh Walker
(The Ash Trilogy # 1)
Romantic Suspense

This is book is suspense at its best! I loved it! It has enough romance to keep you excited but the actual story is amazing. If you love mysteries, you will love this book!

Our heroine, Lena Riddle, has lived in the small town of Ash, Kentucky for close to nine years. Small community, everyone knows each other, everyone is nice to each other. She works for a bed & breakfast as a chef. She lives alone, with a dog, on the outsides of town, in the woods. And she's blind!

Her peaceful existence is ruined by a woman's scream in the middle of the night. Someone is running through the woods near her house. Someone that's running for their life. But when she tries to get the cops to investigate what she heard, no one believes her.

Well, almost no one. The other disruption to her peaceful existence believes she heard something. Ezra King. He's a city cop on leave after being hurt badly on the job. He went back to his grandmother's home, which he had inherited when she passed away, to try and figure out if he could go back to the force. But he wasn't planning on falling in love.

Very rarely do I find a book where I love both the hero and heroine. I did in this one.

Lena is such a strong woman. When she lost her sight she kept going forward and didn't let that stop her from doing what she wanted, becoming a chef. It doesn't stop her now from living in a house she loves alone. It hasn't stopped her in the past from dating. From being confident. And it's not going to stop her from making the cops take her seriously about the threat that's lurking in the woods. There's a woman out there who's life may depend on it.

Ezra is sexy as hell. He's got the bad boy, cop vibe going. He's one of the good guys. He never belittles her and knows just how to treat her.

And talk about hot! I don't know how they managed it with her not being able to see and him having a bad leg, but *fans self* they were burning up the sheets!

I think my favorite part of this book is the fact that I have NO CLUE who the killer is. Truly. I did the process of elimination as best I could and there's always something in my mind that takes someone off the list. I am at a loss.

What I wasn't expecting was the ending. I guess the killer will run lose for the whole series because we don't get to find out who he is!!! I might've screamed a little. It'll leave you hooked to get the next book because now I just HAVE to know who did it.

Whoever it is, he's a sick bastard. Just be warned of this. There are some parts in this book that are written from the killers perspective, or even worst at times, from the victims. I was a little disturbed by that, but it did make the story more real.

And this being my first Shiloh Walker book I have to say that I love her writing! I will definitely have to get more of her books!
