Encore, an all-new sexy and emotional M/M love story from Ruth Clampett is available now!
Encore by Ruth Clampett Publication Date: August 17th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance
When shy programmer, Charlie, is dragged to a Hollywood male revue by his co-workers, the last thing he expects is to be pulled onstage. But when he’s approached by Ramon, a dancer whose only focus is to bring him pleasure, something awakens in Charlie that can’t be denied.
Heated attraction only goes so far when one man dreams of true love and a life finally fulfilled, and the other is still grieving the one he lost, and the mistake that cost him everything.
Can a realist and a dreamer from two different worlds move forward and build a future together, or will their painful pasts keep them from fulfilling their destiny?
Excerpt:There’s another round of cat-calls from the pent up audience when the dancers step to the front of the stage and dance provocatively to amp up the viewers. Suddenly they split apart again and move toward us. My mind is momentarily jumbled, and when the images sort themselves I realize that instead of the woman, the male dancer is approaching me. I can’t help but stare at his incredible body as my gaze slowly works it’s way up from his muscular thighs, to his abs, built chest and shoulders and when I get to his face I realize I’m blinking repeatedly. The confusion that must be evident in my expression apparently is amusing, because he nods at me before leaning in closer and I feel a flush from his hot breath against my ear. “Hey, Prince Charlie … ready to have some fun?” I can feel my eyes bug out and a lump form in my throat. It is him. “Ramon?” I ask in a strangled voice. “The one and only,” he answers with a wink. “I thought you could use a little loosening up.” He widens his legs and steps closer, straddling me and running his fingers through my hair while he slowly rotates his hips. “You’re gay?” I ask, my mouth gaping open. His bold laugh makes my cheeks feel hot. “Oh, baby,” he whispers. “You’re so damn cute. Ask me again when I’m done with you.” He gives me a sexy smile and then slowly rocks his hips forward making me want to rip his briefs off. “Oh God, oh God, oh God.” I whisper, feeling like my face is on fire. He backs away again to dance around me, brushing his hand over my shoulders and down my thighs while he moves. Every sweep of his touch excites me until I’m sizzling like a lit fuse. I’ve never seen anyone other than on music videos who could dance with such a natural rhythm and sexual vibe. He turns toward the audience partway through the dance and then bends forward so his ass is presented to me and I’m in agony not to touch it. He has the most perfect gorgeous ass I’ve ever seen. I get harder thinking about what it would be like in this moment if we were alone, and he wasn’t wearing the tiny briefs. Oh God. I think with a sigh. I’m trying to hide as best I can how turned-on I am. Has there ever been more proof that it’s not a woman that I want in my bed, but a man like Ramon? I’m having trouble catching my breath when he straightens and swivels, then straddles my legs as he thrusts his hips bringing his bulge tauntingly close to my face. Shifting back until he’s almost sitting on my knees, he slowly drags his way up my thighs until his ass is against my crotch and he sinks down firmly enough to know I’m painfully hard for him. The edges of his mouth turn up with delight. “Damn, Charlie,” he says. “You feel so fucking good.”

Encore by Ruth Clampett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
M/M books are one of my favorite genres so I was very excited to read Encore, the author is a new author to me and I absolutely love finding new authors to read. With that being said I was a little disappointed with this book. I really loved the characters and I felt like I bonded with them and enjoyed them but the story seemed to drag out for me. I actually got lost a couple of times and my mind started wandering. The book just couldn't seem to hold my attention very well. I am looking forward to reading something else by this author, I'm thinking that maybe this story just wasn't for me.
Title: Burn Author: Ruth Clampett Genre: Contemporary Romance Series: L.A. Untamed Publication Date: June 7th Cover Designer: Jada D'Lee, Jada D'Lee Designs
Where there's smoke, there's fire...
And I would know. As the only woman in a squad of firefighters, They call me T-Rex.
I’m fierce, fearless and I get the job done. I've got a past that hurt me, nearly destroyed me. Who doesn't? But I'm no damsel in distress... I fight my own battles, my own wars and my own fires.
Now I’m sizzling for my lieutenant, Joe Murphy, and that’s one fire I don’t want to put out. But it’s a complicated situation. A hot and wild situation. When things spiral out of control should I fight for the new life I was trying to build . . . or just let it burn?
Excerpt:Why the hell did you let me kiss you that night?” I purse my lips. “I don’t know.” “You. Don’t. Know.” He says it again without the dramatic pauses, “You don’t know.” “Nope.” Why the hell am I lying? What the hell is wrong with me? He turns to me with an infuriated expression and dark, angry eyes. I know it’s messed up but I think he looks hot. I didn’t realize how much I’d miss him and now that he’s sitting in front of me every one of my nerve endings are on fire. He just looks so damn good. What the hell is happening to me? I just took a shower, dried off, and now I’m wet between my legs. I want to climb his tree, butter his biscuit, and ride him like a stallion … all at the same time. Good Lord. Leaning forward, he rests his elbows on his sexy knees. A second later he rips off his leather jacket, and as he pulls it off his sleeve pushes up and I see the edge of a tat. My nipples get hard. I swear they do. “Okay, McNeill. Here’s the thing. Have you read the Station Book of Rules and Regulations? There’s a rule about fraternization on page twenty-eight.” He’s staring straight ahead, but he shakes his head and slaps his knees. “Okay then, so whatever happened between us night before last, let’s just pretend that it never happened okay?” “Sure,” I say. “You stay away from me, and I’ll stay away from you.” “Right,” I agree while pressing my thighs together and wondering if I have a pair of clean panties. I hope so because the ones I’m wearing are getting wetter and will definitely need to be changed. “So you’re fine staying away from me?” he asks, his voice a little choked. “Yeah. I guess so,” I reply in a low voice as I rest my hand on his thigh. Damn his thigh is hard as a rock. I’m surprised but pleased that he doesn’t push my hand away. His gaze drops down to where my hand is placed and he lets out a long breath. “And I’m not going to kiss you, even though I knew you really liked it when I did, but I’m sorry … no can do.” I want to laugh at that one, and how insincere he sounds, but I can’t because I’m too busy trying to keep my panties from combusting. I’m pretty sure they’re my only clean pair. “You know, I’m pretty sure you liked it too.” As I spread and tighten my fingers over his leg, I swear the heat rising up from him is burning my hand. My thighs are actually quivering. I look down to observe the phenomenon. I’m pretty sure they’ve never done that before. So to test them I rise up, swing my leg over and shift until I’m straddling Lieutenant Joe Murphy. When I fully sink down onto his lap I receive the information that maybe he likes me being there. “Oh God,” he moans with a dizzy look like he’s going to pass out. “What are you doing?” Leaning in, I whisper in his ear. “Sitting on you. I like how this feels.” I wiggle and sink farther into his lap. He nods, closes his eyes for a moment and takes a deep breath. When he opens them again, I swear I see fire. “What do you want?” he asks, his hands resting on my hips. “How about just a kiss? Kind of to test things out again,” I whisper as I place a hand on either side of his face and pull him toward me. When our lips meet this time I’m the one kissing him and I kiss him like I mean business. I put my heart and soul into this kiss, my lips consuming his breath, his heartbeat, his heat. I feel his grip on me tighten as he presses his fingers into my flesh. I moan long and deep when he pulls me down over where he’s hard for me. Damn, like everything about him, he’s big. So big.
