Spotlight & Giveaway: On My Knees by J. Kenner

Posted June 23rd, 2015 by in Blog, Spotlight / 47 comments

Today it is my pleasure to Welcome New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner to HJ! 


Jackson Steele and Sylvia Brooks continue to thrill in the second novel of a scintillating, emotionally charged new trilogy that returns to the world of J. Kenner’s beloved Stark novels: Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me.

I never thought I’d lose control, but his desire took me right to the edge.

On My KneesPowerful, ambitious, and devastatingly sexy, Jackson Steele was unlike any other man I’d ever known. He went after what he wanted with his whole mind, body, and soul—and I was the woman in his sights. One touch and I surrendered, one night together and I was undone.

Jackson and I had secrets, dark pieces of our pasts that threatened to swallow us both. We couldn’t outrun our demons, or the people trying to tear us apart. But in our passion we found salvation, and in each other’s arms we found release.

I was scared to trust Jackson fully, to finally let go. Yet no matter the dangers that lay ahead, I knew I was his—and now that we’ve laid claim, there’s no more holding back.

Here are Julie’s 5 Favorite Passages from ON MY KNEES

Passage #1

He breaks the kiss, pulling back and breathing hard. Our bod­ies are pressed tight together and my chest throbs with the violent pounding of my heart. “I need you,” he says, and I can only nod and whisper yes, my body limp with both relief and desire.

His mouth claims me again, but this time his hands grasp my hips and he lifts me. I hook my legs around his waist as he carries me back into his office. I feel weightless and wild, and god help me I want to be used. I want to be the bridge—the thing that pulls him from anger and back to me.

Passage #2

Every part of my body seems to be connected by criss-crossing strands of red-hot wire. From my breasts to my lips, to my belly, to the soft skin of my inner thighs, and to my wet and needy cunt. “Jackson.” His name is a moan, forced out past my gasps of plea­sure as I arch against his mouth, my breasts so wild for his touch they hurt.

Passage #3

We’re both wild. Crazed. This isn’t about sex or love or even passion. It’s about need. It’s about release.

It’s about taking what we need from each other. Hard and fast and very, very thoroughly.

Passage #4

He exhales, and the noise he makes is both a confession and a seduction. I melt in response, mind and body relenting fully to his touch. He kneels between my legs, his mouth even with the lowered edge of the table—and with my cunt. His soft breath teases me, like the most sensual of promises. And when his lips tease the soft flesh of my inner thigh, I have to turn my head and bite my lower lip to hold back the wild current of desire that threatens to shake me to the core.

Passage #5

He remains perfectly still, only the tightening of his jaw reveal­ing that my words have affected him.
“Those are dangerous things for a woman to say when she’s all tied up.”
“Maybe I like danger.”
I watch as the storm builds in his eyes. “Do you?”
Gently, he presses a fingertip to my lips. Then he starts to trail it lightly down my chin, my neck. “Oh, baby. What you do to me. I want to give you everything you want. See pleasure bloom in your eyes.” The finger dips lower, and he takes one nipple between two fingers, then rolls it, tightening his grip as he does.

    Wicked Ties from Shayla Black. Loved it, and read the entire series up the point of Tyler’s so I would be caught up.

  2. Meredith Miller

    I read a Harlequin when I was a young teen, and to me, that was erotic for my age!

    Mine was by Jaid Black as well. The Empress New Clothes. I could not remember the name until I saw it.

  5. Staci Pope

    It was so long ago (when I used to sneak my mom’s books) I don’t remember the name. However, in my recent history it would be Maya Banks and I think the brothers last name was Colter.

  6. Kermitsgirl

    The first romance novel I ever read was The Ghost by Danielle Steel. I honestly can’t remember if it was erotic or not. It resulted in me reading a lot of those romance novels from the library that you don’t even have to check out, some of which were probably erotic. The first one I read that I can remember that I *know* was erotic was Faking It by Jennifer Cruise. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of erotic romance. It was funny and sexy and took my breath away at some parts.

  7. Amy Rickman

    Something by Maya Bank, Lauren Dane or book 1 of Jaci Burton’s Play by Play series, I can’t remember. I think it Maya Banks.
