                                           Tortured Hero with Dana Littlejohn 
Welcome Hoppers!
I am Dana Littlejohn author of sensual romance. I have many tortured heroes in my books, but I would like to show you Lord Charles DeWitt. A handsome rake who grew up in a loving, happy home with well to do parents that loved each other and a hidden parental linage. Charles was charming and well educated, the type of man women fell for instantly and men wanted to befriend. He had no desire to take a wife until he met Angel...but of course, she gave him the blues!
Charles' Goddess is book 3 in the Erotes series, a series about Aphrodite's children.

Charles’ Goddess The Erotes Book 3 
 Goddess Herophile is set for punishment by Zeus for misusing the powers given to her from her father, Poseidon, causing precious humans harm and distress. Aphrodite, her mother, and the Erotes, her brothers, only have one chance to save Herophile from further harm once Zeus carries out his sentence. Will it be enough time to enhance Aphrodite’s dormant gifts and make Herophile’s future better than her present?

Here is a quick excerpt to show how our leading lady tortures our 'not so willing at the time' hero.


Angel noticed the lustful look in Charles’s eyes as he stared at her. She had seen the look before in a mortal man. Over the years Angel dallied with countless amounts of sailors taking them down to her cave, keeping them for days—sometimes weeks—before releasing them. Many times she went onto land looking for men to play her sexual games. Mostly she appeared in their rooms at night and pretended to be a dream so she could have her way with them, but there were times when she changed herself into a mermaid to lure them into the water as well.

When Angel visited Mount Olympus with her mother they discussed their individual experiences with men over food and drink. Although Angel enjoyed every encounter she shared with a human being, not once had she considered taking one as a life mate. Being with one of the gods in that manner was a far better occurrence. She enjoyed Adonis’s physical attentions most and
wanted  to take him as a lover when she finished with having fun. A pit formed in her stomach as her mind grasped the life she once knew was now over.

Angel turned her gaze to the man at the foot of the bed. He watched her expectantly. His masculine features were unmarred by hair with high cheek bones and sensually curved lips. His expressive very appealing brown eyes focused on her. Angel closed her eyes to them and turned away.

Zeus intended for her to find her own way as a mortal. She did not know this Lord Charles DeWitt. Her mother mentioned how close Zeus was to his humans. Angel did not wish to get caught up in something she had no business doing. She had no intentions on disobeying Zeus again.

“I am not the woman you seek. My being here is merely a coincidence.”

“I was told that your beauty will never fade in my eyes. Looking at you I have no doubt it will be like that for me.” He paused. His rich brown eyes warmed her with sincerity as he searched her face. “There is something else… Something about you…calls to me. I know it’s you,” he added.

His long legs brought him to her in just two strides. He gripped her shoulders and pulled her up into his embrace. The scent of him hung around her, a soft spicy smell teasing her senses. He pressed his lips to hers in an abrupt kiss. The connection electrified her, intense and extremely
pleasurable. Her body begged to indulge in it more, but her mind yelled for caution.

“Are you one of those men that like to take advantage of women?” she asked when he let her go.

The duke was taken aback. “What? No! Of course not,” he huffed.

Releasing her arms he took a step back. The space allowed her to concentrate without the distraction of his sensual aura surrounding her.

“I would never—”

“Then what gave you the impression that I had any interest in kissing you?”

He visibly took a long controlled breath. “Madame, you have me all wrong. I thought that—”

Angel opened the space between them more. “That what? I would be one of those women who would fall at your feet just like that?” she challenged, wrapping her arms around her chest.

“You’re very handsome, Lord Charles DeWitt. I’m sure you have plenty of women who do that, but be assured I am not one of them. I have other business to attend to that does not include dallying with you.”
Angel walked away leaving the duke befuddled and his jaw agape. His face turned so red when she swung the door open she thought he would explode. Angel half expected him to grab her and shake her until she was too dizzy to stand. He walked by staring at her with narrowed eyes, but didn’t say a word. She shut the door behind him leaning on it as the tears she had been fighting finally fell.

* * * *

Charles stalked down the hall. Turning into his study, he slammed the door behind him.


He stood before the window with his arms tight around his chest. A soft knock at the door moments later was answered with a bark.


“May I offer my assistance, sir?” William's soothing voice inquired behind him.

Charles spun his fist tight at his sides. “That is the most insufferable woman I have ever met, William. Surely the gods are playing a cruel joke on me to say that she is my match!” he thundered.

William gave Charles a knowing smile. “She is very," he paused to clear his throat. "Unique in many  ways, my lord.”

Charles’ eyes gaped in amazement. “Unique? You use the term too loosely, old friend.” He pointed at the door. “That woman is arrogant, rude and much too plain spoken for any woman!” he corrected. “Do you know she had the gall to dismiss me from my own bedroom!”

Welcome to Hump Day Humps!

Hump Day HUMPS

Hi everyone!
I am Dana Littlejohn, author of sensual romance. I am thrilled to be able to show you some sensual humping on Hump Day.  Though I have written books in several sub genres, paranormal, shifters, contemporary, BDSM and fantasy to name a few, all fall under erotic romance. I have recently stepped into the realm of female assassins, but you will not see those excerpts here. There are no love scenes in those. *wink*
Today I am going to give you a peek at my African goddess series. Book one is called Conquering the Sun.

Can a man with the patience of a priest and skill of a warrior that purrs like a kitten when he sleeps be the perfect mate for the goddess of the sun?
Takasa, goddess of the sun, left her mountain home consumed with bitterness caused by her long endured loneliness. The elders in her tribe fed her a potion to put her to sleep for a thousand years to wait for the one who would be able to save them for her wrath. Will the goddess have met her match at that time or will the descendent of a neighboring sun god be conquered by her fury as well?

Solarion and Takasa, the Sun Goddess are getting to know one another with banter. So without further adieu here is my Hump Day Hump!


He scanned her face and his eyes widened with surprise. “You fear me.” 

“I fear nothing,” she blurted out. “I...I am the goddess of the sun. I rule all that the light

His smile was soft and knowing. “I wish you no harm, my beautiful goddess. My only mission in life is to please you. I will be companion and mate. I merely want to be by your side while you rule.” He dropped another kiss on her neck. “And when you return here at night, your body will be mine to please and worship with all the love I have for you.” 


His name rode a breathy gasp, but he kissed her quiet. “Take what I am offering you. Let me love you. There is no hidden agenda and no need for you to be alone. I am here and am already yours.” 

Her breathing picked up as his kisses crossed her collarbone. Solarion’s insistent grinding made the moisture build between her legs. Takasa’s eyes closed and she stopped pushing against his arms. Solarion’s powerful legs pushed hers open as he slid down her body, searing it with kisses. She moaned, for although she enjoyed his touch, she was still torn. 

“Solarion, you must cease,” she panted in a whisper. 

“Your voice says one thing, goddess, but your body says another. It cries out to me. It wants me. It needs me. You need me.”

 Solarion’s touch was pleasing, his voice soothing. His words comforted her, somehow. It wouldn’t be the first time she had taken a human to her bed. Could this handsome human really give her what she needed if she just stopped fighting him? Her body seemed to think so. Takasa took a deep breath and opened herself to what Solarion offered. 

She gasped at the titillating sensation his beard left when it rubbed across her belly. He lingered there for a moment to leave butterfly kisses before he moved lower. A shiver of anticipation raced through her body when his chin grazed the sensitive skin over her pelvic bone. Solarion continued his descent, pushing his face into the downy hair between her legs without hesitation. She moaned. 

Lost in the growing ecstasy, Takasa hadn’t notice Solarion had released her hands until she reached for his head. His tongue snaked from his mouth and seared the delicate folds of skin as he lapped them. With another loud moan, she opened her legs wider, inviting him in further. 

Solarion took his time, licking her at first, but her groans of pleasure seemed to spur him. He slipped his hands underneath her, gripping her bottom delving into her core even more. Solarion lifted her hips from the bed and pulled her to him, feasting on her. He licked and sucked her carnal center drinking the essence pooled there.

“Oh!” He kneaded her bottom as he licked her most private place. Takasa’s juices flowed with her elevated excitement, her senses on fire. She had never experienced pleasure in the magnitude Solarion gave her. Her climax was near. She could smell it and yearned for it with all her being. 

Tremors of ecstasy traveled the length of her nervous system. Yanking at the silken covers, consecutive mews of pleasure left her chest, leaving her lungs almost empty. Her muscles tightened, locking in place, and then she exploded from within. A high pitched squeal burst from her throat, a sound she almost didn’t recognize as her own. Its intensity shook her limbs and left her throat raw. 

Takasa gripped a handful of Solarion’s braids, holding him place, but there was no need. He seemed to know what to do. Wrapping his full lips around the pulsating tip at the top of her vulva, Solarion applied a gentle sucking motion on her pleasure center. The action shot lightning rods of euphoria through her body, the aftereffects leaving her shaky and exhausted. When her blissful tremors ceased, Solarion released her and moved up her body again, leaving a trail of kisses in his wake. 

“I’ve waited my whole life to be with you, Takasa. You honor me with your juices. The pearly dew of a goddess…is there any better drink? Now that I have tasted you, I desire you even more. Please! Beautiful Takasa, I beg you. Allow me to adore your body now that I am here. I need you. I want you. Don’t deny yourself what my body can do for you. Let me love you,” he pleaded. 

Takasa gasped, stunned by his reaction and dazed by the overwhelming joy her body experienced. She panted, trying to catch her breath. Her body begged her to let him have her. Every inch of her wanted him. She nodded, giving in to her desires. 

“Yes, Solarion, yes!” 

“Yes!” he growled. 

Solarion positioned himself over her, adjusting his erection to poise before her drenched opening. Once aligned, one controlled push buried his staff inside her. Her body opened, welcoming him, and she surrendered to the increasing feelings of joy overtaking her. 

“Oh, Takasa, the feel of you is glorious. I’ve wondered…dreamed of this moment and, mmm, it was worth every minute of that wait. You are incredible!” 

Takasa’s mouth was agape, but her voice was gone. Solarion’s words increased the pleasure he gave her body, sending her mind into a lustful tailspin. He stroked her, a slow steady motion at first, and then faster and faster. Bending, rolling, and arching his back, pressing himself deeper and deeper. She felt every inch of him sliding in and out of her, every movement better than the last. He was an amazing lover. Gentle kisses moved from her cheeks to her ear.

“You feel magnificent, my goddess,” he whispered. “Each night when you return to your cave to rest, I will make love to you like this. It will only get better and better as we spend more time together. This is some of what I offer to you.” 

“Mmm...” Glorious! 

Takasa wrapped her legs around his narrow waist and he fell into her even more. He stroked her with strong, deliberate movements. 


“Your cries of fulfillment are like kisses on my soul. Give yourself to me, beautiful Takasa. I will be your treasure chest of desire. Reach inside and all you need will be given to you,” he panted. 

Solarion’s promise caressed Takasa’s heart with its conveyance of love. His exquisite command over her senses spoke to her body, expressing the same message to her flesh. She moaned again, clawing at his back. A low deep roar escaped him. 

“I am here to please you. That is my only function. Have your way with me,” he continued, pumping faster.

She met his powerful thrusts with one of her own. With an unexpected groan, Solarion leaned back, and then reached behind him, hauling her legs up to rest on his shoulders. Takasa gasped, wide-eyed.

“Solarion, what—what are you doing?”

He smiled. “Enhancing your pleasure, my goddess.”

With her legs up and her bottom raised high, Solarion continued pushing into her silken tunnel. The penetration was more intense and he was right. Her pleasure soared, taking her to new heights of enjoyment. Solarion delved deeper and deeper into her until Takasa let out a satisfied scream that left her chest tight and her throat sore.

As her body convulsed around the hardness of his arousal, Solarion threw his head back and the lion in his soul showed itself when he let out his own release with a joyful roar.
