Naughty but oh so Good

Okay, I might be naughty but apparently I've been a good girl, because I got early Christmas presents. What you ask? The covers, designed by artist Michelle Ellis, are for the first three ebooks in my new non-erotic series called Sheryl Locke Holmes Mysteries. For this series, I'll use C.L. Exline. Please share my joy and have some eggnog while I explain.







Coming sometime in 2009 from Wild Child Publishing will be Amber's Mysterious Death. The game's afoot when Sheryl spots Amber's husband, Roger, who had disappeared without a trace after Amber's tragic death. With the help of her sidekick, Dot Watson, Sheryl follows Roger and a trail of amber jewelry which leads to duplicity, mayhem and murder.





Next up is: Ruby's Deadly Secret:





While exploring Bridgeside, a Victorian Mansion, Sheryl and Dot discover a diary, which reveals dark secrets about Sheryl's parents and the house's owner, Ruby, who allegedly hung herself in the attic. Someone wants Sheryl dead, but who, and why?




Opal's Disappearance: An old college friend begs Sheryl to help find her missing cousin, Opal, who may have been kidnapped by a mysterious mountain man. When all leads are exhausted, Sheryl concocts a dangerous plan—she becomes bait for the kidnapper and alleged murderer.

"The sexuality of the young lovers captivates as the plot twists and turns to reveal more pieces of the puzzle."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Let's celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style -- how about a couple free sexy reads? Thought you'd like that. Enjoy last year's St. Patrick's Day stories archived at Ruthie's Club and leave a comment:

Wearing of the Green


By Cassie Exline

“Come on, honey!” Bert called for his wife, trying not to get angry. “We’re going to be late.”

“What do you think?”

He turned to see Clarice dressed in a yellow button-up dress with white dots. “What in the hell!”

She blinked. “Don’t I look good in this outfit?”

“We’re going to the pub for a St. Patrick’s Day contest, and you’re wearing yellow. You do the math!”

“I have green on,” she said.

“A shamrock pin is not wearing of the green.” He had to admit she was gorgeous. Her strawberry blond hair glistened, the dress clung to every curve, and the heels accentuated her legs to perfection, but they were in a contest.

Clarice unfastened each button and let the dress puddle at her feet. Bert gasped. She wore a half-cup emerald green bra that lifted and separated each delicious mound. A triangular piece of green lace covered her bush, her curlies clearly on display.

“Oh, baby.” He swooped her up and dropped her on the bed. In seconds, he was stripped and was between her legs with his cock in hand ready to fuck. He moved the sliver of nothingness aside and rammed home. She was wet, warm, and ready. Her pussy swallowed his johnson and hung on with a force that drove him wild. It took all of two minutes before he exploded. He rolled off and they cuddled.

“You’re definitely wearing green.”

She caressed his jawline.

“After five years, we just might win that cruise.” Then Bert frowned. “Wait a minute. The judges have to verify we’re eligible to enter. Did you think they’d take my word for it that you were wearing hot looking green undies?”

“Nope.”

“Then how?”

She grinned. “You do the math.”

Stroke of Luck

By Cassie Exline

There she was, the woman I was going to marry in six months, on her hands and knees searching through blades of grass and clover as if she were hunting for gold. “Wendy, can’t we at least walk around the lake?” I asked.

“You can go, Derrick. It’s St. Patrick’s Day. I have to find a four-leaf clover.”

I dropped to the ground to help her. When I glanced over, I was well rewarded. Wendy’s top had gapped open, giving me a view of her lacy green bra. In fact, I could see the valley perfectly. The twin peaks shimmied and shook. I strained to see those luscious breasts.

“Maybe this will help.” Wendy whipped off her top.

“Yeah.” I focused on them. “Why is it so important to find a four-leaf clover?”

“So, my wish will come true.”

I snorted. “Babe, that’s superstitious nonsense.”

“It’s worked before.”

“Oh.” News to me. “When?”

Wendy looked up. Our eyes met. “When I met you.” If I hadn’t already been in love with her, I would have fallen at that moment.

“I see.” I watched her breasts sway. “Honey, what are you wishing for? We’re getting married soon.”

“Did I ever tell you how much I love spring?”

“Really?”

“It’s a time of rebirth. Green and fertile things. New growth. New life.”

I’m dense at times but I knew what her wish was. “Take off those panties.” I shoved down my bottoms. Her hot pussy swallowed my hard cock as those bouncing beauties escaped their green lacy prison. The bra landed on my face. When I tossed it on the grass, I spotted a four-leaf clover.

With a stroke of luck, I’ll make that second wish of hers come true.

Happy Valentine's Day -- free story


Whipped Cream Surprise -- first appeared at Ruthie's Club (which means you must be 18 or older to read the story)


By Cassie Exline

It’s Valentine’s Day, and Sally has big plans for the evening. Eric has been working over sixty hours a week for months with no time for romance. He’s scheduled to get off early tonight for a sizzling fuckfest. She’s been in bed waiting for an hour. Eric is late.

When Sally hears the front door open, she smiles and throws off the blankets from her naked body. The cool air hardens her nipples. She plumps them more by rubbing them between her thumb and forefinger. “Baby, I need some help.” She places a red velvet ribbon around her blond hair.

Instead of his footsteps racing up the stairs, she hears him rummaging in the kitchen. What a time to get a snack. “I’m upstairs!”

Sally grabs the can of whipped cream and opens her legs wide. She sprays the white fluff over her freshly shaved mound and fills her slit. Eric has always wanted her to shave her pussy bald. Maybe tonight.

She squirts a circle around her bellybutton and each of her nipples. She dips a fingertip inside her cunt, wiggles it, and then sucks it clean. It feels so good, she dives in again. “Honey, you better hurry or I’m not waiting.” She giggles and smacks her lips. “Finger-licking good.”

Finally, she hears footsteps on the steps. On impulse, she turns so all Eric will see when he enters the room is her cream-filled cunt.

When the steps stop by the doorway, Sally opens her legs wide and, to make it appear as if her cunt is talking, she wiggles her pussy lips, and sings out, “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

“Happy Valentine’s Day!” says a familiar voice.

Sally sits up and gasps. “Mom!”

“My dear, I didn’t know you were a ventriloquist.”

Four Star Review





Review: Tree of Buried Secrets by reviewer: Sheryl

Sensuality Rating: Sultry
Star Rating: 4 Stars


An exhilarating but at the same time heart wrenching story of betrayal and death; Tree of Buried Secrets by Cassie Exline is a thoroughly enjoyable story about family secrets coming out years later. ... I found myself enthralled in what I did read of how powerful love and secrets can change lives. ... A wonderfully sweet and tender love story that doesn’t end the way you would expect.

Interview by Raven Starr

Go check out my interview with Raven Starr.

Here's a portion:

Yup here's this hot new author Cassie Exline...
Check her out.




1.)With the countless number of interview questions let's try something different. Tell us something about yourself that hasn't been previously stated. I was very close to becoming a wedding photographer, but I got hired at the newspaper.



2.)How long have you been writing? It seems like forever, but it's actually been since was I was in grade school. I used to fill up the tablets the school gave us with my stories. Wished I'd kept them.

Thunder storms & thoughts of murder?

It's been a long night or is it a short night?? Hmmmm anyway, at midnight I was awakened to the pitter patter of rain. awwww relaxing. At two o'clock I was awakened by the pounding of rain, blowing of wind, flashing of lightening, and rumbling of thunder.

Snuggling under my covers with all intents of returning to dreamland, I was soon to be annoyed by the snoring of my hubby. Thoughts of smothering him with a pillow danced through my head.

But we all know it's just plain tacky to smother anyone before having a cup of coffee. After all I was raised right.

So I got up and put on the coffee and got a shower. Cleaniness is good.

Then I curled up on the sofa, sipped my brew, and watched Poker After Dark. I so enjoy educational TV. It's good for a person to learn as much as possible.

Bottoms up!

Dark Eden Press






Tree of Buried Secrets now available at Dark Eden Press

Julia races to their rendezvous site as if the devil is nipping at her heels. Tonight she and Alex are going to elope. Her heart soars when she spots Alex waiting for her by the apple tree.

Instead of fleeing, Alex wants to make love to her one more time at the same spot where they met, fell in love, and surrendered to their desires.

The white blossoms serve as their bed, and the tree as a witness. A thunderous crack shatters the night, spawning years of torment, generations of secrets. Julia never told anyone what happened that night, but today might be the day she confesses.







From the book......

Alex whispered, "Stand up."

I did as he requested. Alex unbuttoned my skirt, pulled down the zipper, gave it a tug and let go. It puddled at my feet. I stepped out of the skirt and he tossed it on top of my other garments. I trembled and kicked off my shoes.

With his hands on my waist, he pulled me close to him, kissing my middle. His mouth moved down the flat of my stomach. His breath almost seared my skin going through the garter belt and panties I wore.

He kissed the bare skin between the garters and carefully unhooked each fastener on my nylons. When he was done, he rolled down the stockings, kissing my bared legs as he went, before tugging them off of my feet.

His hands massaged both of my legs from the ankles up to my hips. Hooking his thumbs into the waistband of my panties, he pulled down, taking the garter belt with them. I stood naked before him.

His thick calloused fingers parted my silky passage and his tongue entered. His thumb rubbed my love-button and I opened my legs wide, silently begging him to enter deep while his tongue made love to me.

My story in Come Together: With Pride




Come on dance with me. My story, Fire and Ice will be included in Alessia Brio's Coming Together: With Pride anthology. What a terrific honor and what a great cause.

Cupnjava, Lisabet Sarai, James Buchanan with Rachel Kramer Bussel doing the introduction. Don't worry, I'll remind you when the time comes. Now let's dance!

Reviews for Tree of Buried Secrets

Dark Diva Reviews say, "This is a beautiful story of love, murder, and secrets. At first it was a little hard to follow but once you get the flow, it’s ok. The description is very well done. Bring you right into the book. I have to admit after reading the first couple chapters I saw part of the ending coming, but part was also a great twist."

To read the entire review go to: http://darkdivareviews.blogspot.com/2007/12/tree-of-buried-secrets-by-cassie-exline.html



The Long And Short Of It says, "Tree of Buried Secrets is an interesting story that moves back and forth between present and past. ...... For the most part, the questions that continually surface keep this story moving along at a fast pace. .... Tree of Buried Secrets is a tribute to the idea of “one true love,“ reminding us that even the march of time and messy family secrets cannot change the most powerful memories of all.
