Sinful Rewards 10 by Cynthia Sax ADULT title (Spotlight, guest post)

I am delighted to have a guest post by the talented Cynthia Sax.  She shares her thoughts about the following question:

Do you have a fur baby (or a feathered baby or a scaly baby)? Why did you fall in love with him or her?
CS: I grew up surrounded by animals. No, I’m not talking about my three brothers (though they might qualify – grins). I’m referring to pets. We had a dog, a cat (at times, multiple), fish, a canary (who would dance to Karma Chameleon and ONLY Karma Chameleon – he didn’t like any other songs), bunnies, and some transient pets.

I had five siblings and we were drawn to different pets. One of my sisters loves to talk. Her favorite pet is a bunny. Bunnies listen to her, didn’t talk back. I love cats. Cats are independent, perverse, and cautious like I am. I have to earn their love.

In Sinful Rewards 10, Bee, the heroine, falls in love with a stray cat.

At first, this pet doesn’t seem like an ideal fit for her. Bee is a fashionista, is extremely aware of how she’s perceived. She wears designer clothes, wants everything to be perfect. Gisele, her cat, is scarred and malnourished, of unknown pedigree. She’s a cat so she’ll shed on Bee’s clothes.

But Gisele has been abandoned as Bee has been. Gisele’s human left her behind, forcing her to survive any way she can in a garbage-filled back alley. Bee’s father walked away from her and her mother, leaving them in poverty.

Bee sees herself in the cat. She knows Gisele must be scared, confused. Perhaps she’s waiting for her human to return as Bee waited for her father to return. Gisele becomes a way for Bee to express some of her own fears and worries. And when Bee rescues Gisele, she rescues a part of herself.

Here’s a snippet from their ‘first meet’ scene…


A skinny black cat gazes up at me, her yellow eyes large and unblinking. Awww . . . my heart melts. She’s as terrified as I am.

“Where are your cat friends?” I survey the expanse of garbage. Nothing moves. “Are you alone?”

The cat stares at me. There’s no collar around her neck, no sign of ownership. She has been left, abandoned, forgotten. My hands twist. She must be so scared and confused, not knowing if anyone will ever return for her, will ever love her.


I’d love to hear about your pets! What are their names? How long have you known each other?

This is an ADULT title

Everything that Bee once believed in has changed … because of him. With one heated glance, one meaningful touch, one soul-melting kiss, he has turned her world upside down and transformed her life forever.

She knows he'll do anything for her, including sacrificing all that he holds dear and never letting her go.

But what is she willing to do for him?

Will Bee embrace the unthinkable to keep her man safe and give up her dreams to spend one more night in his arms? Will their passion be enough to satisfy them?

R Rated Excerpt

I tilt my chin upward, silently asking for a kiss, and he obliges, covering my lips with his, pillaging my mouth. Our tongues tangle and twist, dancing to the rhythm of our bodies, and the bond between us tightens, every encounter tying us together, tiny threads of emotion fusing our two souls into one.

It’s beautiful and scary as hell. Losing him would devastate me, damaging me more than my dad’s abandonment, more than any past betrayal, yet I can’t close my heart to Hawke, can’t deny him anything. All I can do is give him a reason to live, to be as cautious as I am.

I lick his square chin, tease his scars, trying to ease his past pain. The short brown hairs covering his skin abrade my flesh, the contrast intriguing me. Hawke allows this adoration, fucking me without entry, his movements smooth and slow. I sprinkle kisses along his neck, explore every swell and every indent, outline his tattooed wings with the tip of my tongue, tracing each finely etched feather.

“Hawke?” I position my mouth over the sun inked in the design’s center. He meets my gaze, his eyes brilliant blue with passion. “This is to remind you to be careful today.” I bare my teeth, his body stiffens, and I bite down, branding him as mine.

“Fuck.” He jerks. “I need you.” He pulls back, bumps his cock head against my entrance, and pushes into me, stretching me almost painfully.

I cry out and wrap my legs around his hips, linking my ankles over his ass. He sinks deeper and deeper, his girth pressing against my inner walls. I feel every inch of him, the bloom of his tip, the length and width of his shaft, and finally his coarse curls tickling my pussy lips.

“You’re my girl,” Hawke declares as though there’s doubt. There isn’t. I’ve been his girl since the first moment I saw him, standing defiantly naked on his balcony, the sun’s rays shining on his bare skin.

“I’m your girl.” I lave the mark I’ve left on his chest, soothing the hurt I caused. He tastes of salt and man, a delicious combination.

“You’d never bite anyone else.” Hawke’s eyes glimmer. He knows I care for him, too much. “You only lose control with me.”

I cover my vulnerability with a scowl. “Are we chatting or are we fucking?”
