Laurie Roma lives in Chicago and is the author of the IAD and Arcadian series. She has always loved immersing herself in a good book and now enjoys the pleasure of creating her own. She can usually be found tapping away on her keyboard, creating worlds for her characters while she listens to music. Of course her playlist depends on her mood…but then again, so does her writing.

An avid reader of the romance genre, nothing bothers her more than annoying characters. Seriously, who wants a happy ending for someone that pisses you off? She loves tough alpha-male heroes and strong heroines that have brains as well as beauty. Her novels are filled with both passionate romance and down and dirty lust-driven interludes, as she believes both are essential to a good love story. She loves to hear from her readers and can be reached at laurieromabooks@gmail.com.

Deadly Target

IAD Agency 3

IAD agent Mikayla “Lynx” Lincoln is in desperate need of a vacation after taking a bullet during her last mission. On orders to relax and recover, she's sent to a cabin in the secluded woods of Colorado for some peace and quiet. But her plans for a restful recovery are shot to hell the moment she crosses paths with former movie star, Gage Stark.

Gage Stark is a man with a troubled past. After a brutal betrayal ended his promising acting career, he returned home to heal and start a new life. The moment Gage meets Mikayla their chemistry is too strong to deny. Passion explodes every time they're together and their volatile relationship is anything but quiet.

When a shocking discovery is made and secrets are revealed, trust is put to the test. Will Gage be strong enough to stand beside Mikayla and fight, or will his need to protect her shatter the fragile bond between them?

 Adult Excerpt

 “What are you doing?”

“What does it look like I’m doing?” Mikayla whispered as her hands slid down his chest, over his taunt abs until they reached the front of his jeans.

His breath hissed out as she began working the top button of his jeans opened while her other hand stroked over the rigid length of his cock through the thin material. “Jesus, Mikayla. This room doesn’t have a lock. We can’t do this here.”

Mikayla laughed at the incredulous look on his face as she drew the zipper of his jeans down, allowing the thick, hard length of his to spring free. She took his cock in her hand, pleased that her fingertips didn’t touch around his thick shaft. She nipped at his chin with her teeth as she began stroking his cock, rubbing the pearl of pre-cum weeping at the tip with her thumb.

“Don’t tell me the great Gage Stark is worried about someone seeing us.”

His eyes widened in surprise even as the lust flared brighter in his emerald green eyes. “You aren’t?”

Mikayla shrugged. “You started this. Now I’m aching and want you to finish it. Finish me, come on, Gage. I dare you.”

Fucking hell, she was trying to kill him.

Gage’s breath left in a rush. Christ, he felt like someone had sucker punched him. His body burned with a possessive fire as his mind snapped off, and he began pulling at her pants with shaking hands. Thank god for elastic, he thought gleefully as he shoved the black pants down her legs easily, remembering at the last moment to be careful of the bandage on her thigh.

Fuck him, he wanted to devour her, to eat her up with big greedy bites. And he would, but not here. Not know when anyone could walk in and see them. He’d be damned if he let anyone see his woman naked.

And she was his.

God help her, he was hers, too. She literally had him by the cock, and he felt like he would die if he didn’t pound himself inside her until neither of them could move. His cock was throbbing painfully, wanting to be inside the tight depths of her pussy again.

Gage gritted his teeth as he felt his cock harden in her tiny hand as all the blood in his head rushed down to his groin. His erection was heavy, thick and pulsing, and ready to fuck her until she begged him to stop.

He stepped back, groaning as she refused to release his cock. Instead, she tightened her grip on him as he quickly removed her pants from one of her legs so he could spread her wide. He looked down at her pussy on display for him, wanting to pound himself inside that little hole. Hell, the entire bar could walk in at that moment and he wouldn’t be able to stop himself from fucking her.

He grabbed her hips and slid her forward so she was sitting at the edge of the table. She wound her long legs around him again, pulling him closer. His hand slid down stroking his fingers down her slit, spreading her juices. She used her legs to pull him tighter against her.

“Wait, baby. I gotta get you ready for me.” Gage breathed out on a laugh. “Don’t you want any foreplay?”

 “Fuck the foreplay. I want to feel you inside me again, Gage. I need it.”

Gage growled as he jerked her head back to once again feast on her mouth as she guided his cock into her hot, wet pussy. Breathing heavily, Mikayla moaned into his mouth as he slid forward, burying himself into her until the mushroomed head of his cock was tight against the entrance to her womb,

“God, you feel so good, baby. So tight and so fucking perfect. Your pussy hugs my cock like it was made to be inside you.” Gage’s voice was thick with lust. His bright-green eyes gleamed with a hunger he could barely control.

“Gage, I need you to…” Mikayla moaned.

“What, baby?” Gage growled. “Tell me what you need, and I’ll give it to you.”

Mikayla's eyes opened and narrowed on his face as she saw the tight clench of his jaw. He was making her crazy, and still he held on to the thin edge of his control. No, that wouldn’t do. If she had no control, then neither would he. She gripped his hair tight in her hand and bit down on his lower lip. “I need you to fuck me. Fuck me hard, Gage. Shove your big dick inside me and make me come.”


With no warning, Gage did exactly what she asked and began pumping hard into her, shoving his cock into her hot little hole, tearing a strangled scream from her throat that he muffled with his own mouth. He hummed low in his throat as he moved down, his teeth savaging her neck, nipping and lapped at the soft flesh there.

“Oh god,” Mikayla groaned, letting him know exactly what he was doing to her. “Gage, gimme more. Give it to me.”

The Inside Scoop

Q. Do you work best on a deadline, or do you need freedom from time constraints?

A. I would say I need freedom from time constraints to write my stories. I don't like rushing to hit a certain word count. If I did, I think my writing would suffer. My storylines tend to be complex and so are my characters, which takes a great deal of time and patience to create. With that said, I do set my own tentative deadlines to make sure I'm not slacking or procrastinating.

Q. Is there a word or phrase you catch yourself overusing?

A. Cock. Yep, there are only so many ways you can say it. And when you write long, detailed sex scenes the word tends to gets thrown around a lot. But it is effective when you whip it out and use it. *wink wink*

Q. How do you know you’ve written a good book?

A. When I type the words THE END. Seriously, I won't end a book if I'm not fully satisfied with it. Sure, I need to go back and make edits, but I also do that along the way. If I'm not ready to type those two little words then it isn't good enough to deserve being finished.

Q. How do you keep your characters and stories organized?

A. Okay, I'm going to admit this. I have a spreadsheet. Yes, a spreadsheet. Since the worlds that I create have numerous secondary characters, I have to keep track of them somehow. I also need to make sure everyone has their own distinct personality traits and physical appearance. Feel free to laugh now.

Q. Are you a Swooper (write first, edit later,) a Basher (edit each sentence as you go,) or both?

A. I'm a combination Swooper and Basher. What does that mean? I will write out a scene then go back and edit the hell out of it before moving on.

Q. What is the one thing you must have to be able to write?

A. Diet coke. I am addicted.

10. What are you currently working on? How is it different from other books you’ve written?

I'm currently working on book 2 of my Arcadians series. This one is different than the first book of the series because the heroine, who is transported to a strange new world, has a natural ability to block out the blood bond her new mates have formed with her. Is this a problem? It certainly is for her mates. LOL

Q. What types of scenes are your favorite to write?

A. My favorite scenes to write are the ensemble scenes, when multiple characters are interacting with each other. Then again, they're also the scenes that are the biggest pain in the ass to write. What does that say about me? lol

Q. Do you prefer to write 1st or 3rd Person POV? Why?

A. I tend to write in third person omniscient so I'm not limited to a single character's perspective. It gives me the freedom to tell the story more completely and allows my readers a better understanding of all my characters through their thoughts and feelings. This is different than 3rd person limited, which is the current trend for most erotic romance authors, but my opinion is 3rd person omni is the way to go.
