Excerpt
for Mature Audiences From Lust Cakes

Jasmine was
about to turn and leave her cubicle, but she hadn’t noticed her sexy boss
watching from his office doorway and then silently approach her. She jumped
when he laid a hand on her shoulder from behind and drawled in her ear, “A
moment in my office, if you please, Miss Sheridan, and bring the cupcakes with
you.” 
Jasmine froze in
shock, but her nipples tightened at the sound of his deep voice and the heat
from his hand branded her skin through her thin silk blouse. She closed her
eyes. This couldn’t be happening. Now the lust spell was in full force she just
wanted to escape the office. She certainly didn’t want to risk eating one of
her own cupcakes and neither did she want her gorgeous hunk of a boss to eat
one. She hadn’t intended for him to have one. “Erm, can’t it wait until Monday
morning, Mr. Rolfson?” She turned to face him and gasped when he didn’t step
back. “I really have to get home.” 
Goodness, he was
breath-taking up close and his deep blue eyes looked at her shrewdly. “I’m
afraid not. I must insist you come with me.” Jasmine found herself putting her
bag down, picking up the remaining cupcakes and following him into his office.
“After you,” he said, standing in the doorway to let her through, before
closing the door behind him. Jasmine gulped at the sound of the door clicking
shut and tried not to be so aware of him, but his powerful presence seemed to
fill the room and he aroused intense lust in her without having to eat one of
her stupid cakes. 
“Will this take
long, Mr. Rolfson?” She was a bit nervous as to why he wanted to see her and
walked over to his desk to move away from him.
“That rather
depends on you.” 
She frowned at
his enigmatic answer and watched him walk into the room and sit on his desk
near her. “Please take a seat, Miss Sheridan, and put the cupcakes down.” 
Jasmine put the
cupcakes down on the desk beside him, catching a whiff of spicy male cologne as
she did so before sitting down in a chair facing him. She immediately realised
her mistake because she had to look up at him and it made her feel vulnerable.
“What seems to be the problem?” She bit her lower lip as she stared into his
handsome face. 
Mr. Rolfson
looked down at the cupcakes and then at her. “Well, the problem seems to be
your lovely cupcakes, Miss Sheridan. They do indeed look delicious, but they
seem to be having a strange effect on the whole office, wouldn’t you say?” 
Squirming under
his close scrutiny, Jasmine blinked several times but she decided to try to
brazen it out. After all, he couldn’t know what she was. “I’m not sure what you
mean, Mr. Rolfson. My cupcakes are gluten free and low in calories. They
shouldn’t be triggering any allergies.” Why was she so breathless? She licked
her lips nervously and felt heat suffuse her body when his incredible eyes were
drawn to the action and darkened with desire. Did he want her? Please let him
want her. She felt another stirring of lust.
“You know we’re
not talking about allergies.” And the admonishing tone he used made her panties
wet. 
“We’re
not?” 
“No, Miss Sheridan,
we’re not.” He smiled at her. “We’re talking about how all of my employees are
currently fucking each other senseless after eating one of your cupcakes. I’m
sure you couldn’t help but notice.”
Jasmine felt her
pussy clench and her nipples harden at how he said ‘fuck’ in that sexy way, as
though he wanted to do the same to her. “That’s ridiculous, Mr. Rolfson.
Cupcakes can’t have that effect on someone.” She flicked back her long hair.
“Now, if there isn’t anything else, I wish to go home.” 
His blue eyes
looked intently at her. “Stay where you are,” he warned her and she gulped.
“Cupcakes can have that effect if you’re a mischief fairy and have put a lust
spell on them.” 
Jasmine gasped
and her green eyes widened in horror. “How do you know that?” Then she cursed
herself for blurting that out without thinking.
Mr. Rolfson
laughed, and she watched in stunned silence as a glow of gold appeared around
his irises. “I know exactly what you are because I’m a vampire. I can sense
other non-humans, especially fae.” 
She stood up
abruptly, her heart thumping wildly. Jasmine was a little bit frightened of him
now. As a fairy, she had powers, but as a vampire he was easily more powerful.
She looked in dismay at this gorgeous man built like a Greek god and wondered
why she hadn’t seen it before. He was too perfect to be human.

Tammy awoke
slowly, groaning as she moved her aching muscles. Strong arms were wrapped
around her and she turned her head to see James fast asleep beside her. Easing
herself out of his arms, she sat up with effort. They must have had one hell of
a night because she felt sated and ached all over, in a really good way. She
smiled at the memory of having the most amazing sex ever with James. He’d been
an animal. Then she looked down at her body. There were bite marks on her arms
and a couple on her breasts. “What the hell?” she gasped, pulling back the
duvet. There were bite marks on her thighs too, like two little puncture
wounds. Tammy frowned, trying to remember. “The spell!” She rubbed her
forehead. “I turned James into a real vampire.”
She gently shook
him, and sleepy green eyes looked up at her. He gave a crooked grin. “Hi, babe.
Was it a good party? I can’t really remember, but that’s a good thing, right? I
hope I behaved myself.” 
He was back.
Miracles did happen. 
“It was great,”
she lied. “Do you want a coffee? I’m going downstairs to make one after I’ve
showered.” 
“In a while.” He
yawned. “Can I have some more sleep? I feel knackered, Tam. I don’t know what
you’ve been doing to me all night.” 
Tammy smiled as
he fell asleep, relieved to have him back. She got out of bed, took a quick
shower, threw a long t-shirt on and found her cell phone. There were several
curt texts from Cheryl, with a final, Where the fuck are you?
Her friend was
going to kill her. Understandably. 
“Oh crap, I’d
better call her.” Tammy felt so guilty. She called Cheryl’s number as she went
downstairs to the kitchen. 
“Cheryl? I’m so
sorry we didn’t make it and that I didn’t call or text you back, but I can
explain.” 
“You’d better. I
was royally pissed when you two didn’t show. I thought you were getting James
to dress up and then you were coming straight over?” 
“The spell kind
of went wrong.” Tammy explained everything as she boiled the kettle and
prepared her coffee. “I got James to drink the potion and said the spell, but I
turned him into a real vampire.” 
“You’re
kidding!” 
“No, I’m not.
Luckily, he didn’t want to kill me.” 
“What did he
do?” 
“Spent the whole
night biting me and we had incredible sex. That’s why we didn’t make it to the
party. He wouldn’t let me leave the bedroom, and my god, Cheryl, it was
good.” 
“Wow. Is he a
vamp now?” 
“The spell seems
to have worn off. He’s upstairs sleeping.”
“You’ve been lucky,
Tammy. I think you need to stop messing with magic, before you hurt yourself or
someone else.” 
Tammy sighed. “I
think you’re right. It was intense with James like that, but I never want to
hurt him—or lose him—so I’ll lay off the magic.” 
Cheryl agreed.
“I know it’s a tough decision, but some things are better off left alone.” Then
she paused before asking curiously, “What was the bite like, though? Did it
hurt?” 
“It hurt a bit
when his fangs first pierced my skin, but then it was indescribably hot. His
bites gave me the most intense orgasms, which lasted ages. You’d never believe
it.” 
It really wasn’t
something she could describe effectively.
“Lucky you.” Her
friend sounded envious. “Relish last night, Tam, but be grateful too. You had a
real-life vampire in your bed and experienced hot loving which none of us will
ever get to have and now you’ve got your man back. Do you know why the spell
went wrong?” 
“No, I need to
check the spell book.” 
“Well, after
you’ve checked and ensured that James is permanently himself again, I would
suggest getting rid of the damn thing so that you’re not tempted in the
future.” 
Tammy knew her
friend was right. She grabbed her coffee and carried on talking while she found
the spell book. She took a gulp of coffee and then put the cup down and turned
the pages until she located the correct spell. “Ah.”
“Ah?” Cheryl
queried. “What do you mean ‘ah’?” 
“I mean there’s
small print that I missed.” 
“Out with it
then,” her friend demanded. 
“If you perform
the spell on Halloween the person will actually become the character that you
wish him or her to be for the duration of Halloween. Oh.” 
Cheryl laughed
down the phone. “You’re so ditzy, Tam. You’re lucky you didn’t want him to
dress as a monster or something. Imagine getting bedded by Big Foot.” 
Tammy ignored
her friend. “Well, at least we’re both okay. No more magic for me. I’m sorry we
didn’t make your party.” 
“I forgive you
because you’re my best friend and you had a night of great sex with a vamped-up
James. Now, take care, Tam and I’ll see you soon. I’ve gotta go, okay?” 
“Yeah,
bye.” 
Tammy put her
cell down after hanging up and silently drank her coffee. She was lucky she
hadn’t done permanent damage to James or that he hadn’t hurt her while being a vampire.
Still, it had been a really good night and maybe she could get James to be a
bit different in the bedroom. More commanding. She finished her coffee and put
the cup down. 
“Argh.” She
yelped as strong arms suddenly grabbed her around the waist, pulling her
against a hard chest. A mouth nuzzled her neck. “You scared me for a moment
there, James,” she finally managed to gasp the words out, heart still pounding.



“Sorry, babe.”
He licked the puncture wound on her neck and she shivered in response. Then she
moaned as his hands slid up and under her t-shirt to cup her breasts. “I need
to talk to you, Tam, because I have a confession to make,” he whispered in her
ear as he massaged her breasts and pinched her nipples.

Interview with Vanessa Liebe
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story? 

This is a good question. With my longer stories, I like to plan the chapters and have a good idea of what each character will do in them. However, once I start writing, the characters evolve and I find the chapters do change quite a bit sometimes. So, I guess in a way the characters do ‘hijack’ the story but not in a negative way. The story should be driven by them.
With my short stories, they are totally character driven. I never know where they’re going to take me lol.

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.

It’s six fast paced, fun and sexy short stories with a magical theme 

Have you written any other books that are not published?

No. I have a work in progress at the moment though.

Pen or type writer or computer? 

I like to plan on paper and write some of my chapters out on paper, to then type up and tinker with. Other times, I’ll type some of the chapters straight up on the computer.

Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?
