About Lea Barrymire

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

Blurb:

wiredinsin_msrVictoria is a business owner, a friend and a succubus, the latter being something she despises with her whole heart. As she works to free others like her from the daily need to feed from sexual partners, she stumbles across her mate. Now she’s fighting destiny and the call of his lust, refusing to sate her need on the one male made for her.

Dominick is a technowizard used to living his life his way. When he arrives at a business meeting and senses his mate, he’s intrigued. When she slams walls up around herself and refuses to even look at him, he goes on the prowl. He uses her sex phone business to get her attention, but can he keep her on the line long enough to capture her heart?

Excerpt:

When she’d finally fallen asleep the night before she’d dreamed of him, of his energy, of his lust. Dreams rarely woke her, but she’d come awake moaning from an orgasm, coated in sweat and still shaking from the release. She didn’t like admitting it, but she craved him and silently agreed with her inner thoughts that perhaps he was someone she wanted to actually get to know.

Reading the note again didn’t help her to decide what she thought of the gift. Nick had obviously had it planned and had worked hard to get it to her without anyone seeing him or who had delivered it to the building.

Victoria, Please accept this token of my appreciation and affection. I hope you find it as beautiful and unique as I find you. All I ask is that you don’t open it until Thursday evening before our next session. Yours lovingly, Nick

She sighed. If she’d been human still she’d have been terrified that the man was stalking her. In the supernatural world, though, stalkers were rare. Beings who lived thousands of years were strange, bestowing gifts and favors on others with no real comprehension of how it looked to a former human. She couldn’t assume that the male who had sent the gift was doing anything other than simply sending her a present. It wasn’t her first and surely wouldn’t be her last. Many of her clients sent tokens of their affection or thanks. The men she took as patrons were rich, some beyond even her comprehension. Money to the supernatural community was a necessity, but more often than not a joke. When you lived for centuries there was no limit to the income you could make.

DJ Lea in the House

For the next two months, I’ve invited my fellow Cabal of Hotness buddies to take over my blog on Wednesdays and share a song from their current playlist, or their former playlist, or whatever works for them. Today we have Geeky Hotness herself, Lea Barrymire in the house!
I’m currently working on a succubus-meets-warlock story and find that this song is just loud and hard enough to get my fingers flying across the keyboard. Well, and it plays along with the theme of my story.

The story, Wired in Sin, is about a female who hates her life. She’s a ‘made’ succubus who has found a way to feed off sexual energy through a very non-conventional method. Lots of wires and phone cords in this story. And, no, it has nothing to do with BDSM. Victoria would do anything to stay away from people. Her hero, Dominick, knows she’s supposed to be his but has to find a way into her heart. He’s a sneaky bastard! LOL

Here’s a short, unedited, snippet… see what you think of my techno-wizard and succubus:

Dominick knew the moment that she started feeding off his energy. The magical pull was slight, but still there in the back of his mind. He couldn’t stop from smiling when her face finally relaxed and a beautifully peaceful look descended. She’d been distant and cool when first materializing in his mind. Now that he was feeding her he could feel her loosening up, releasing some of the control she had on their session and her mind.

Moving his hands up under the dress was a taste of delicious torture. He could feel her smooth skin under his palms, feel her heat, but could only imagine what she looked like. Were her legs long enough to wrap around his waist if he hoisted her against the wall? Would they look pale around his tanned skin? Did she have any freckles on her ivory skin, or was it creamy and unblemished? He groaned. His imagination fueling his thoughts, feeding his desire to unwrap her like a present. He wanted to push the fabric off her legs and catch a glimpse of the prize he was after, but the longer he waited the better it would be.

He watched her face as he stroked both hands up along her legs. He stopped at her knees and skimmed his palms back down to her ankles, lightly running his fingers over her skin. He grinned as she shivered under his ministrations. He did the circuit again, up slowly along the outside of her calf and then back down to her ankles. The feel of goosebumps under his touch made him want to shout in triumph. She was reacting to the session even if she didn’t want to.

Dominick wanted to give her so much more. “Open your legs, Victoria. Spread open for me, love.”

Fantasy Man Friday

Hey y’all! Today I’m over at Evelyn Byrne’s blog talking about why I chose to write about succubi in my newest release, Succubus-in-Waiting. Stop by to give me your thoughts on creatures of myth and legend and how you would change them for a chance to win!

Speaking of succubi, those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook should know that I’m a big fan of Ghost Adventures. I know, I know, Zak uses too much hair product, but hey…he has to make himself look as tall as possible to intimidate the ghosts! Anyway, I eagerly await this show every Friday. If my family or friends plan something, I tell them I have to be home in time for the show and I’ll watch it until I catch a rerun of the new episode. What I enjoy so much about the show is the way the guys react when they find something. I especially love it when they make Aaron go in a room alone because he so doesn’t want to go, you can see it in his face.

Anyway, I saw an episode where they went to the Ram’s Inn in England and Zak was calling for the incubus to come and get him. What they meant was a succubus since they’re guys and incubi only went after mortal women. Every time they make a reference to that episode, I crack up laughing. I can’t help it. Poor Zak.

That got me to thinking about incubi. They’re supposed to be absurdly attractive and have seductive powers that would crush any woman’s will to resist. Of course, that got me to wondering what my ideal incubus would look like. I mean, he’d have to be tall, of course. I have a weakness for men taller than me. He’d probably have to have dark hair and light eyes (a combination I find irresistible). And he’d have to be well muscled. Rar.

Kind of like this guy:

Nom, nom, nom! Those jeans look like they’re losing the battle against gravity, don’t they? *wipes away the drool* Oh, the things I could do to this man! Wait, incubi are supposed to do the, er “doing”…I’m not sure I’d like that very much. Okay, so it wouldn’t be a fate worse than death, but this is the kind of man who makes you want to touch!

*cough*

So, uh, who’s your idea of a perfect incubus?

Happy Friday, y’all! Have a safe weekend 🙂
