Blog Tour: When the Snowman Whispered by Kenya Wright (Paranormal Romance)


  Title: When the Snowman Whispered
By: Kenya Wright
Publication Date: December 23, 2016
Genre: Paranormal Romance
#whenthesnowmanwhisperedtour
***Warning: This book contains adult language, graphic violence, and explicit sex that may be disturbing for some readers. This book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.***
**A Standalone Novella dealing with Romance and Hoodoo Folk Magic**
When the Snowman whispered, Faith’s marriage had crumbled and the world had already gone insane. Instead of a holly jolly Christmas, the garbage of humanity filled the news. A crazy election and mass shootings. Riots and protests. People screamed at each other on and offline. In 2016, the world had gone mad and, maybe Faith too. Because there was a snowman. And she carved him into a cold, chiseled masterpiece. And he came alive. Maybe due to the mojo bag her mother gave her for Christmas. Maybe due to the human insanity bleeding and spilling its rot onto the earth. Or maybe it was all that hunger, sweltering inside of Faith and yearning to wake up and break free. Regardless, that beautiful snow man whispered. He came alive. And things will never be the same. 5.0 out of 5 stars ~ S. Lowry
A bit of fantasy, a bit of strange like the twilight zone with a bit of magic all tied in a messy bow of fun 4.0 out of 5 stars ~ Steamy IR Reads Original, intrigueing, creative masterpiece It was more to the story than i anticipated. It had the horror of Tananarive Due , the passion and mystery of Game of Thrones, and the realism and cautionary tale of Toni Morrison, with the mysticism of Alice Walker. A good read.
I wish he was real. I shaped him from snow, and he stood tall above me. He was chiseled glass in the winter. A life-sized crystal man, slick and curved in all the right places. I used a step ladder to smooth the top of his head, my knife to line his muscles, and my hands to form his face. Beautiful. I clutched the tiny red leather bag hanging from a string around my neck. A piece of twine tied it closed. A heart-shaped key dangled on its side. Letting go of the bag, I licked my lips and imagined him alive and in front of me. He’s gorgeous. I’d melt all over him. I sculpted for a living, but this had been my best work. The snowman’s flesh appeared like crushed pearls. I slipped my fingers along the smooth line of his body—shivering from the touch of him. He was frozen pecs and a cold bulge at his groin. A frosty masterpiece. I used my earrings for his eyes—oval sapphires surrounded by diamonds. They sparkled in the winter sun. “Those are some expensive eyes, my friend.” I placed the hat on his head.
Kenya Wright wrote her first novel during her third year at UM Law school. She dropped out a month after the release and never looked back. Words are power, and Kenya wants to be the greatest wizard that ever lived. It's an audacity to inspire and teach the healing of love through arousal. It's this crazy idea that love can not only help a reader escape, but the story can also teach the person about being human, while making them laugh, cry, and hot for more sex.

EXCERPT #1
G-RATED

She froze.
Please, dear God. No!
Sharply pulling her phone from her ear she held her breath. What the hell could she say?
Summer? Summer are you there?
Her thumb automatically slipped over the OFF icon ending the call, and dropping the phone on the table, with her heart sinking, she turned around. Liam was moving slowly towards her. A dark frown was crossing his face, his milk chocolate brown eyes were narrowing, and his full lips were grimly pressed together. How could she explain herself? She was screwed. Absolutely, one-thousand percent screwed.
I-uh—“
Dont even try, he growled, Ive heard enough. When you came knockin on my door lookin for a job you were here for one reason and one reason only, a record deal. I asked you about that point blank, and you lied to me. You lied to my face.
Summer had never felt her heart pump so fast, nor her face burn so hot.
And what about all those cozy talks weve been havin, he demanded, drawing ever closer, and the flirtin in your painted-on jeans? Damn, all this time youve been playin me. Totally playin me.
She could hear the hurt in his voice. It was killing her. She may have arrived on his doorstep wanting to be the next Taylor Swift, and she still did, but in the three months shed been there she had fallen for him, hook, line and sinker, as her dad would say. She was positively drowning in her feelings for him, but hed never believe her now, not in a million years.
Hed stopped directly in front of her. His cologne was tickling her nostrils. She loved that smell. A few weeks earlier shed sneaked home one of his T-shirts, and each night, holding it tightly, shed crawl into bed, close her eyes, and inhaling the spicy, musky fragrance, she would dance her fingers against her sex.
Suddenly it happened. The glorious unthinkable, and it abruptly chased away all thought.
Without warning his fingers were tangled in her hair, he was tugging back her head, and his lips were devouring her mouth. She couldnt breathe, her stomach was alive with a thousand butterflies, and her heart was somersaulting against her chest, but he brusquely broke away, and with a life of its own her hand flew from her side and slapped him.

EXCERPT #2
18+

Dont you think you deserve a spankin for connivin the whole time youve been here. Thats not cool, sugar. Besides that, if were gonna move forward youve gotta get rid of all the guilt youre feelin, and dont deny it, its written all over your bright red cheeks.
I cant stand this, she mumbled raising her hands and covering her face. I cant. Its so difficult.
Hey, its good youre embarrassed, you should be. It shows youve got a conscience.
I guess, but youve already spanked me. What was that about if it wasnt for lying to you?
That was for the slap!
Shit.
This is how I roll, Summer. Youve gotta know I dont take kindly to someone tryin to pull the wool over my eyes. Im not gonna let it go unpunished.
This is crazy! she declared, finally dropping her hands and staring at him.
Nope. You wanna know whats crazy? Its obvious no-one has ever called you on your crap.
I dont know what you mean?
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You do somethin you shouldnt, and when your fella gets mad you roll your big blue eyes at him, press up against him and beg his forgiveness. You have great make-up sex and things go back to normal, but for some reason you find it all just a bit frustratin. How am I doin? Is that about how things usually go with you?
Summer was speechless. Everything about Liam Taylor was confounding.
What hed just said was true, but how could he possibly know that? And how could he be so warm and yet sowhat? Strict? Was that the word? Strong? No, it was more than strong. His kiss had made her knees weak and her stomach flip, and when shed slapped him he hadnt gotten mad, or walked away, or any of the other reactions shed expected. What hed done was absolutely unbelievable. Hed spanked her, and hed done it quickly and calmly, and now he was threatening to do it again. No. He wasnt threatening, he was telling her. Hed made it crystal clear if she wanted to spend time with him, personal, special time, hed wallop her butt as the starting point.


EXCERPT #3
21+

Too many times hed felt the insincerity of a woman pretending to be turned on when she wasnt. He knew his wealth and celebrity were a magnet, but Summer had lied her way into his house not because of him per se, but because she wanted to be a singer. It was an interesting twist that she was now sitting before him naked and blindfolded, and proving to be wonderfully submissive.
Im going to lay you on the floor, he murmured, traveling his lips across her neck and fondling her breasts with both hands, and youre gonna spread your legs and play with yourself, but youre not allowed to come.
Cant we sit here for just a minute longer? she whimpered, lost in his massaging palms and his wonderfully warm moist lips on her skin.
You can, but Im steppin away for a moment.
No, she said, grabbing one of his wrists. I refuse to let you go.
Is that right?
Yes, thats right!
Youre bein naughty, you know that too, right?
Maybe, butOUCH.
His fingers had suddenly, sharply, pinched a nipple.
That should keep you company for the few seconds Ill be gone.
Ow, ow. Was that really necessary?
Yep, and you are really pushing your luck, he scolded, though wearing a grin she couldnt see. Just stay there, and no more back-talk.
She loved the darkness of her blindfold, and as she felt him rise off the couch and move away she rubbed the soreness from her breast. Why had he left again? What other salacious surprises did he have in store? She strained to listen. He was close by, and though she could hear him she couldnt figure out what he was doing.
On to your hands and knees and crawl forward, he ordered. Youll feel a rug.
It was surreal, moving across the floor blindfolded and naked, but she loved it, and when she felt the fur under her hands she couldnt wait to lay in its warm softness.
You sure look good on all fours, he murmured his lips suddenly at her ear, especially with that gorgeous backside still so lovely and pink. You know Im gonna be spankin you more often than not.
You are, Sir? Why?
I have a sayin; a spankin a day keeps the brat away. You might wanna remember that. Time to lie on your back.
Her butterflies wildly fluttering, she dropped down and rolled over, and sending her hand against her sex she sought out her clit and began her salacious massage.
Thats a mighty nice picture, he crooned. Legs wider, thats better. Imagine youre in your bed with my T-shirt.
Her surprised gasp made him chuckle, but when he glanced down at her hand nestled against her sex he shook his head; shed stopped rubbing.
OOWW, SIR! she wailed as a sharp slap suddenly landed on the inside of her each of her thighs.
I didnt give you permission to hit the pause button, he scolded. Disobedience has consequences.
Sorry, I was just so shocked that you knew about me taking your T-shirt.
 I was real pleased that you did. It told me how you were feelin about me, but right now youd better start playin with yourself again. Like I said, do it just the way you do when youre alone and thinkin about me. Is the shirt usually layin next to you.
