Love Endures, Phoenix - The First of the Love Endures series by Michelle Stevens AKA Red Phoenix

Available on Amazon, Smashwords and B&N

I am thrilled to get this novella out on New Year's Eve!

The Phoenix series is one that is dear to my heart because it shares some of my greatest joys and sorrows in a fictional setting. I wrote the series to encourage others that no matter how great the loss, you can survive and every day is precious.

Love Endures continues Beth's journey as she rebuilds her life. New challenges and new joys await her. This is the perfect book to begin the new year!

Love Endures, Phoenix:

Find out what happens to Beth after the flames…

This first novelette of Phoenix's 'Love Endures' series explores Beth’s courage as she faces a new season in her life. Despite the obstacles that lie ahead, she is determined to embrace life supported by Scott’s love - a love that endures. Her journey is marked by healing, intrigue and forgiveness. However, her best friend Angie hides a terrible truth and Glenn, Scott’s longtime friend, holds challenging secrets of his own.

Extended Description:

In this continuation of the Phoenix series, Beth finds herself in new territory. Angie’s secret and Glenn’s past will test the bonds of both friendships. In the midst of rebuilding a new life with her son, Beth finds she must confront her greatest fear - facing the man who shattered her spirit. She is fated to meet this challenge with courage.

For you see, a Phoenix is destined to rise from the ashes.

Don't Drink and Drive - Ever: A Personal Message from Red Phoenix

My car...
We had a wake up call just before Christmas...


A drunk driver hit my car which held my children inside. When I drove up to a ton of emergency vehicles and saw how serious the accident was, I struggled to breathe.

Everyone walked away from the crash. I understand how lucky we are.

If you party hearty on the holidays, I ask that you NOT drive - stay the night, designate a driver, or call a cab.

** Your life (and those you might harm/kill) is not worth driving intoxicated. **

Sincerely ~Red

Phoenix Burning Bright by Michelle Stevens AKA Red Phoenix

I have a series out under another pen name. Why the pen name Michelle Stevens? Because this is a romance (no erotica) and there is a spiritual twist.

This series is a fictionalized version of my romance with my husband back in the 80's:


and now...



The ending packs a punch, it is the culmination of many events in my life rolled into this one tragedy. While the event itself did not happen, the emotions behind it are very real.

It book was well received by several publishers except... they wanted me to change the ending. Well, in fact, I was told to cut off the book once the couple (hubby and I) got married.

My story is meant to have an impact - a positive one - and I am proud to offer the conclusion publishers were reluctant to embrace.


Phoenix Burning Bright (Book 4 of 4)

Before the world of Facebook, Chat Rooms and Blogs, there were online communities called Bulletin Boards…

Beth Lynn is ready to marry The Keeper, AKA Scott Reiner, the extraordinary man she met on a computer BBS. A romantic wedding, a baby and career success are all in Beth’s future. What she doesn’t know is that a tragedy is racing towards her, one that will change everything. Join Beth as she navigates this unexpected turn of events and discovers her hope in the flames.

* The fourth part of Beth’s journey is the most profound yet. The highs of life are hers to enjoy, a sexy honeymoon, the joy of a child and the success in her teaching career. Yet… she is a phoenix and her time to burn has come. She is brought to her knees by events that will ultimately define her. For you see, she is a phoenix ~ her future requires the flames.

Excerpt from Brie Embraces the Heart of Submission:
 
Sir nodded and a servant handed him a large swab and container. Brie glanced to the right and saw another servant standing with an extinguisher held elegantly in his hands. So it’s to be fire play tonight. No wonder Sir had insisted she put her hair up.
The servant lit the swab and stepped back just before the lights lowered. The room was completely silent. There was no accompanying music for the scene. Brie found it made for a more intimate connection with the audience. Every movement of Sir’s, every gasp from her lips was heard by their observers.
 And Brie did gasp when she felt the cool alcohol coat her skin. Sir began with her back, making simple designs, lighting them on fire before he swept them out with his hand. He moved down her legs and even lit the soles of her feet, making her yelp when heat from the flames licked the sensitive areas.
As with the undressing, Sir took his time, building anticipation for both Brie and the audience. She noticed that Sir let the flames burn longer as he advanced in the scene. It required more of her concentration, as the heat was intense. Each time she was just about to cry out ‘yellow’, Sir would wipe the flames from her skin.
He began creating more detailed patterns on her back. Brie wondered if the designs had significance, because the men grunted in response when he lit them on fire.
Then he spoke the first words since he’d asked her to lie on the table. “You and I seek the path together.” She felt him making a trail of a spiral circle with the cool liquid. Brie held her breath as he tapped it with the flame. The fire danced down the path he’d created.
He swiped it away and made a new design. She could identify the sideways eight easily, knowing exactly what the symbol meant. “No matter what the future brings, you and I are connected.”
Sir lit the symbol for infinity on her back. She let it burn not only on her skin, but into her soul, almost regretful when he swept it away.
He then lit the ring of candles on the floor, one by one, before putting out the fire in his hand.
Brie looked into the mirror and felt a pleasant chill when she realized Sir was staring at her, his look cavernous in its depth and intensity. She could fall into those eyes, losing herself forever…

Excerpt from Brie Learns the Art of Submission:



“Baron,” she purred, lifting her eyes to look into his beautiful hazel ones.
“We meet again,” he said with a grin.
She echoed his smile, grateful to be partnered with her dark Dom. However, Brie was so hot and bothered she was worried that she would not be able to hold back her orgasm if he demanded it of her. Especially when his thick lips landed on her mouth and that wicked tongue tasted her. She trembled in his arms, a hotbed of lustful desire.
He ordered her to undress. As she folded her clothes in a tidy heap, he removed his briefs, exposing his thick shaft. He sat down on the bed and motioned her to him. She walked over, swaying her hips sensually, wondering how he was going to use her.
“Kneel.”
She immediately bowed at his feet and he tied a blindfold over her eyes. She heard him move farther onto the bed, and then he directed her, “Come to me. Lick my balls and suck my cock, kitten, before I ask you to impale yourself.”
Brie purred, loving his command. She held out her hands and found the edge of the bed. She crawled onto it and made her way between his legs. She kept her ass in the air as she bent down to lick his balls. They were salty from sweat. She caressed both with her tongue, moaning as she pleased him with her mouth, needing him to hear her pleasure.
“Suck me.”
She took his shaft in one hand and repositioned herself over his cock. Gliding her lips over his shaft, she fluttered her tongue over the frenulum. His intake of breath turned her on and she sucked him with more enthusiasm. Soon, however, he commanded her to stop.
“Impale yourself, kitten.”
Brie’s loins contracted in pleasure. She blindly climbed on top of Baron and rubbed her moist pussy over his shaft. Bracing her legs, she slowly guided the head of his generous manhood into her. Brie paused just before she descended onto his hard cock, letting it fill her completely. She ground herself onto his base and sighed in contentment.
Baron grabbed her hips and began pumping her up and down on his shaft. “I have something new planned. Something you haven’t tried before.”
Her interest was piqued. Whatever it was, she completely trusted Baron.
“Lay your head on my chest,” he ordered huskily.
With his cock still lodged inside her, Brie laid her cheek against Baron’s muscular frame. He wrapped his arms around her possessively and held her there. She could hear his heart beating loud and clear, bringing a sense of peace to her neediness.
Then she felt his touch…
Brie gasped when he ran his hand over the curve of her ass. The trail of tingling sensations left in the wake of his hand left her with no doubt as to whom it was. She whispered, “Sir…”
“Yes, Brie.”
Her whole body became an electrical current, making it almost impossible to breathe.
“You will be taking both of us at the same time,” he said smoothly, as his hand continued to leave a trail of fire on her skin.
“Yes, Sir.” She licked her lips, not quite believing what was happening. She had been whipped, spanked, and even fucked by a colossal cock, but never by two men at once.
The idea of taking Sir with Baron still deep inside her was frighteningly erotic and it made her gush with wetness. “She’s ready, Thane,” she heard Baron say beneath her.
Sir confidently replied, “I know she is. I can tell she’s hungry for it.”
Brie heard the slippery sound of lube and imagined Sir coating his princely cock with his masculine hand. Brie whimpered softly into Baron’s chest.
“Relax, kitten.” Baron chuckled lightly. “You are about to please your two favorite Doms. A submissive’s dream.”
The bed moved as Sir positioned himself behind her. He lightly touched her tight hole, coating it with lube before he slipped a finger inside. She mewed softly as his finger covered the walls of her taut ass. It felt completely different from before. Her pussy was already stretched fully by Baron’s thick shaft, making Sir’s simple finger penetration more pronounced.
“Relax, Brie. I always start off slow,” Sir reminded her.
His rich voice calmed her and she felt her body respond to it. She was desperate to feel Sir inside her. “I need to please you, Sir,” she implored.
“You will,” he replied confidently.
He pressed the head of his shaft against her tight sphincter. Her body resisted his invasion, even though she longed for it. He began slapping her ass lightly. “Let me in, Brie.” The gentle slapping relaxed her muscles and she gasped as the tip of his cock disappeared inside.
“Good girl,” Baron praised beneath her. His hands ran lightly over her skin as Sir pressed his shaft deeper into her ass.
Sir’s grunts of pleasure almost undid Brie. Her body willingly opened itself up even though it was being stretched beyond capacity.  She felt him push in farther and she whimpered.
“You’re so sexy, kitten,” Baron murmured, lifting his head up and finding her lips. They kissed as Sir gently thrust his shaft deeper into her tight ass. She groaned into Baron’s mouth, excited to be taking both cocks at once.
“Put your hands behind your back,” Sir commanded.
When Brie did, he crossed her small wrists and held them against her back with one hand. The feeling of restraint excited Brie and she felt another wave of moisture coat Baron’s cock.
“She likes that,” Baron commented.
“I know exactly what this submissive needs.” Sir grabbed a fistful of her hair with his other hand and turned her face towards him. His kiss was demanding and passionate. A flood of emotion passed between their lips. When he pulled away, she was shaking from the intensity of it.
He immediately began stroking her ass with his rigid cock as he held her wrists behind her back. After several lengthy thrusts, Baron took hold of her hips and joined Sir, the two thrusting in opposite rhythms.
 Brie’s whole body tingled as she took the manly thrusts of both Doms. The heated groans and grunts of the two Dominants blessed her submissive heart.

Sir returned, dressed in a thick coat, boots and a traditional Russian hat. Brie had to admit he looked charming as a Russian and smiled bashfully at him when he approached. He was carrying a fur for her.

He put it down to release Brie from the chair. Before he untied her, he freed one nipple from the metal clamp, sucking hard on her breast to reduce the pain. She held her breath as he freed the other and encased her nipple with his warm suction. Brie groaned in pleasure. Sir looked up at her before releasing her nipple from his mouth with a sensual pop.
He undid the bindings, picked up the fur, then helped his naked sub into it. Her Master placed a matching hat on her head last, pulling it down over her ears. He gazed at her tenderly. “Krasivaya.”
She wasn’t sure of the meaning, but knew by his tone that it was meant as a compliment. Brie wrapped her arms around his bulky frame and pressed against him. Sir helped her into her boots and then took her hand to lead her outside.
The scenery was unbelievably beautiful in its winter splendor. The cabin was next to a secluded lake covered in a thick sheet of ice. Large flakes drifted down lazily, changing direction only when a frigid breeze caught hold of them. She stuck out her tongue to catch one of the huge flakes and giggled when one landed on her nose and melted.
Instead of taking her to the lake, Sir headed into the forest. They walked until he stopped in front of an incredibly tall, ancient-looking tree. Sir pushed her back against it, and opened her coat without warning. The freezing air caressed her naked skin, making her nipples stand to attention, but soon Sir’s warm hands were caressing them.
His fingers moved to her clit and he growled in English, “Your pussy has come twice, but it has not been satisfied. Let me remedy that.” Sir unbuttoned his coat and fumbled with his pants. He pressed her against the tree as he thrust his cock inside her.
Brie cried out in satisfaction, overcome by the feeling of Master’s shaft. So hard, so perfect, so needed… He grunted and lifted her up, giving her all of him. Her fur coat protected her from the roughness of the bark as he pushed into her with abandon.
“Oh, Sir! Oh, God, Sir, yes!” she cried.
He slowed down and looked into her eyes. “I love everything about you, Brie. Your passion, your mind, your body, your need…all of it.” His lips landed on hers again as he made love to her in the forest. Brie watched the large flakes gather on his head and shoulders as he took her. It was magical, this unexpected coupling in the forest.
“I love you,” she lifted her mouth to his ear, “Thane.”
