A Sexy First ~ The First Kiss from ALICIA'S POSSESSION ~ My Sexy Saturday

Greetings, dear readers!
Last week I lent my blog to Scarlet Hawthorne to showcase her book Deadline, which had just been released that very day. I cannot lie: Her excerpt last week for "Date Night" was far spicier than mine!
This week, I have an excerpt from my own novel Alicia's Possession. Scarlet, George Sanchez, and I were at the Louisiana Book Festival together, and I couldn't get over how many readers wanted the paperback of Alicia's Possession. Usually eBooks are more popular, so as a reminder, Alicia's Possession IS available in all eBook formats, as well as audiobook and paperback. In fact, I can even sign your eBook!
When I saw the theme of this week's My Sexy Saturday was "Sexy Firsts," I immediately thought of the first kiss in Alicia's Possession. So here you have it - Seven sentences for this sexy Saturday! I hope you enjoy!

He brought his mouth down, barely touching hers, his tongue tasting the salt of tears on her lips—those lips he had wanted to kiss from the first moment they’d met.
“Please,” she said on a puff of air and tried to pull away from him, but he tightened his hold on her arm.
“Please what?”
“Please…don’t kiss me.”
“I think you want me to kiss you.” When she said nothing in protest, he pressed his lips to hers and gently pulled first her top, then her bottom lip into his mouth. He held her chin between his thumb and fist to lift her face.


Alicia’s Possession – Romantic Suspense Thriller!

“(O)ffers everything: romance, sex, BDSM elements, crime, mystery, compelling characters, and a gripping plot. It grabbed my attention and kept me riveted to the end!” – Masquerade Crew Review

#1 Bestselling Romantic Suspense – 4 straight weeks

“A great story. It’s got everything—sex, crime, cops, more sex, a twisted mystery, knot tying, and a superb denouement.” — Chuck Hustmyre, screenwriter and bestselling author of The Axman of New Orleans

After recovering from a freak car crash that put her in a coma for two months and left her with no memory of the accident, wealthy socialite Alicia Pageant becomes convinced there is a connection between the seemingly mysterious disappearance of the neighbor across the lake and the bizarre occurrences inside her own house; but everyone—including the investigating detective—thinks the woman’s head injury left her unable to distinguish reality from fantasy.

As Detective Mason Crawley investigates this “suspicious incident,” Alicia’s palpable sadness and vulnerability awaken his instinct to protect her and lead her into the light; but when her story begins to unravel, each new piece of information creates more questions than it answers. He begins to wonder if he is falling in love with a woman who is a witness to a cleverly-concealed crime, dangerously delusional, or a murderer.

5 Stars: Magnificent! For a reference point, let me say I first thought I’d stepped into a modern version of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” then stumbled into 50 Shades of Grey. Having said that, the originality and craft of the story is ALL Saucier–sensual, deep, and alluring.” Amazon Reviewer

5 Stars: Murder, Mystery, love, BDSM, and some great sex. When I read a book and I can feel the characters emotions, then I know its a good book. That’s what we have here.” Between the Sheets Book Reviews

4 1/2 Stars: Saucier has blended together a very interesting mystery with a BDSM relationship in its infancy. Alicia’s Possession is a good read for both the love story and the mystery.” Manic Readers

About Alicia’s Possession

Following the horrific car crash that left her in a coma for two months, Alicia Pageant has returned to her affluent lakeside home to recuperate and come to terms with her husband’s infidelity and their impending divorce; but her attention is frequently captured by the violent arguments of Daniel and Judith Holloman who recently moved into the house on the other side of the lake. One night she is awoken by gunshots and other strange noises coming from across the lake; and, after witnessing what she believes is someone driving away with a body and never seeing Daniel again, Alicia insists on calling the police, against the advice of her estranged husband, who believes she has imagined it.

Detective Mason Crawley is sent out to investigate the “suspicious incident,” which he considers a nuisance call – even more so after learning of Alicia’s recent head injury and watching her take her pain medication with wine. He interviews Judith Holloman, who says her husband has gone out of the country on business, but the stories of both women begin to unravel when he sees the two of them meeting. Then while attempting to locate Daniel, someone claiming to be a contractor with the Department of Defense warns him not to investigate Daniel’s disappearance further.

Mason confronts Alicia and demands an explanation, and she is forced to admit that her head injury has left her with no memory of the accident or the several weeks before. Still she insists not only that Daniel is dead but now he is haunting her because she knows he was murdered.

Although he cannot control his increasing attraction to Alicia, Mason isn’t sure if she’s lying, delusional, or in some sort of danger. This leads him to look into her drunk-driving accident, in which she drove her BMW into a lake several miles from her house; but something about the single-car crash doesn’t add up either.

Even as they succumb to their growing feelings and desires, Alicia doesn’t know if she can trust anyone after her husband’s disloyalty; and when Mason discovers that the night of Alicia’s accident she had gone to confront her husband’s mistress – and no one has seen the girl since – he doesn’t know if he can trust her either. And now he has yet another mystery to solve, with Alicia at the heart of it.
