Welcome Hazel St. James today

Thank you for having me on your blog!  I am super excited to share "Fighting For You", book one of the "Redemption" series with you!  I have been working on this project for almost four months now, and it has come together beautifully!  The story is heart-wrenching, yet tender, and is more of a love story, than an in-you-face all out erotic book.  Every single one of my beta readers had a good cry from the story!!  Hope that you all enjoy it!

Fighting For You  
Tristan Hart is just getting started out in the world, when he is handed a severe blow that breaks down every barrier he has ever erected.  What gets left behind is a twenty-four year old tortured soul, searching for the road to redemption. 
Peyton Bauer is a natural born nurturer that wants nothing more than to care for those in her life.  She carries her own past that she keeps carefully hidden from everyone.  Peyton and Tristan are thrown together by fate and the attraction between them is instant.   
Tristan sees his recovery as slow going, but even still, he is ignoring a part of himself that often times appears in his dreams.  Those dreams hold so much more than Tristan is willing to acknowledge and it hold him back.
Tristan and Peyton struggle to find a happy medium for themselves as the relationship heats up.  Tristan is left with a difficult decision that he doesn’t want to make.
 How far will they go to hang on to something doomed to fail?  Will Tristan’s life make strides the right direction, or does his lack of foresight cause his world to come crumbling down?

Teaser Excerpt:

“If you’re willing to try, will you give me some time before we get to the, um, more intimate part of a relationship?”  She bit her lip when she finished, making Tristan smirk, thinking that she was embarrassed talking about sex.  Which prompted another question that he blurted out, “Oh, baby, are you a virgin?”

Peyton laughed and leaned back a fraction to look him square in the eyes.  “Good God, no,” she answered with a tiny slap against his chest.  “I just don’t give it up right away.  I have a three date rule, and it’s never failed me…weeds out the douche nozzles that just want a quick lay.”

Tristan nodded his head, pleased with her reasoning.  “Smart girl, and no, it doesn’t bother me.  Besides, isn’t this like date two already?”

“Ha ha, sweets.  No.  I’ll give you the first one, but you have to work for the second and the third.”

“Sure, I’m gonna kiss you now, baby.  For a long time.”

Peyton had already leaned back into him, and she softened her body as she closed her eyes.  There was a tiny whimper that came from her as their lips inched closer.  There was barely a hairsbreadth space between them and Peyton had parted her lips just a bit.  Tristan could feel the heat coming from her mouth as they breathed each other in. 

Finally ready, he grazed her lips softly and pulled back.  The next stroke was just a bit longer, but still didn’t get him the response he was looking for.  Again, he touched their lips together, and mentally high-fived himself when Peyton followed his lips back this time. 

This time when their lips met, he tilted his head to the side, and she responded in kind and not only their lips, but their bodies pressed together until there wasn’t a bit of daylight in between them.  Meshing their lips together, they nibbled and caressed each other’s mouths until, finally, Tristan said softly, “Open for me, baby,” against her lips.

Peyton did so, and Tristan flicked his tongue against hers, leading them in a sinuous dance for a very long time.  Finally, when they were both drained and panting, he pulled back and held her face in his hands.  “You lead, Peyton.  I want to go further, but I did say that I would only kiss you.  If you want me to stop at that, I will.”

Peyton breathed out a whisper, “Don’t you dare stop.” 

Tristan didn’t need any further encouragement, and he went for her chin, placing small kisses all the way along her jaw line, and ended up at her ear.  She was quite a bit shorter than he was, so he was contorting himself when he tried to lower his lips to her neck.  There wasn’t a moment’s hesitation when he slid his hands around her waist and then down to her ass and hauled her up and into his arms.  Peyton giggled as she wrapped her legs around his waist. 

Now that she was closer to his lips, Tristan went back to the flesh between her neck and shoulder and felt her wildly beating pulse with the tip of his tongue.  He pressed her up against the wall in the empty apartment, using his hips to hold her there so that he could free his hands. 

He let go of her ass and moved his hands in between their bodies, cupping each of her breasts in his hands.  She moaned from deep inside, and he smiled against her skin as he nipped and licked the flesh on the other side of her neck, pressing his thumbs against her straining nipples so that he could flick them back and forth.  Her staccato whimper told him that her nipples were extremely sensitive and he pressed against them again.  Tristan realized that something hard was pushing against the pad of his finger that was different and he audibly gasped.  Tristan moved his body back and let Peyton slide down the wall to her feet.

“You have your nipples pierced?” he asked a dreamy eyed, but surprised Peyton.    

Her only response was a tiny nod of her head as she bit her lip.  Tristan stepped to the side of her and playfully tapped his head against the wall a few times.  Peyton laughed a deep belly laugh as Tristan said, “This is going to be a really fucking long two more dates.”
