Hey, lovely people!
I know I’ve been quiet on the blogging front so far this year, but that’s certainly not true in other aspects of my life. In fact, I’m moving home on 1st February, so things have been insanely busy lately. The new place is only about three miles away from my current one, but sadly, that doesn’t make any difference to the phone company…who still need two weeks to connect me to the internet at my new address. Fail!
The good news, though, is that those two weeks without the distractions of the internet will be perfect for finishing off something I know a few of you have been waiting for for quite a while. I’ve managed to get Hot, Rich and Dominant 6 to a place where I can be confident about finishing it and having it ready for release by 28th February. Marc and Nell have almost finished their story – at least, as far as I plan to tell it. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to get this one out there. 🙂
As I’ve said, I’ll be offline for a couple of weeks, but feel free to drop me comments here, on Facebook or on Twitter. I’ll pick them up when I get back with a shiny, finished story.
Yay! The newest instalment of Hot, Rich and Dominant is now available on All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Amazon US and Amazon UK. More links to follow as I get them…
“If you don’t level with me, I can’t be your submissive. I can’t give control to someone who doesn’t trust me with the truth.”
Stepping into the spotlight…
Nell West has spent a whirlwind couple of months as Marc Cassidy’s submissive. But even as the handsome, charming vice-CEO of the Cassidy Corporation guides her into the BDSM scene at large, Nell senses he’s hiding a huge part of his past from her. What prompted him to leave the D/s community for over two years, and what exactly happened to end his relationship with his last submissive, Callie?
It’s not just Marc’s romantic past that remains an enigma. He’s working hard on something, but he’s keeping Nell in the dark. His intense, unspoken dedication to the project’s progress makes her uneasy. What is he planning, and why is it so important to Marc and his sister, Serena?
When the tension finally reaches breaking point and Marc’s carefully laid plans fall to pieces, Nell must find the strength to demand the same unfailing honesty from her Dom that he expects of her—whatever Marc’s reaction might be. Can she coax the secrets he’s hiding out into the open, or will he leave her with no choice but to walk away?
Question: Wait… Why is it named No More Secrets? I thought this book was going to be called Risk and Reward?
Answer: Well, yeah… but as you’ll know if you’re following my Facebook page, I’ve been having a little trouble with the ending, and the word count was going to be twice as long as the previous book’s. I was starting to feel the pressure, and that made me writer’s blocked! So rather than make everyone wait until the end of the year, I’ve split the book down into two and now I feel as though I have a bit more breathing room. 🙂
It’s been a loooooong time coming – believe me, I know! But I’m hoping it was worth the wait. Making a Scene is now available on Smashwords and All Romance eBooks in .mobi (for Kindle), .epub (for Nook and most other e-readers) and .pdf (best for online reading). EDIT: It’s now also up on iTunes, Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
Here’s the blurb to whet your appetite!
Figuring him out…
Returning to work after her erotic fairytale weekend of opulence and submission seems frustratingly mundane to Nell West, but she’s hopeful about her newfound submissive relationship with the CEO’s gorgeous son, Marc Cassidy. It seems that Marc can’t get enough of her, either, but after a private moment in his office is interrupted by his hot-tempered father, she hardly sees him for a week. When he discusses his father with her, Marc—usually so Dominant—almost seems afraid. What’s going on behind the scenes in the Cassidy family?
Pushing her boundaries…
After their long week of separation, Marc tells Nell that he wants to try a more intense scene with her. Despite her insecurities about the mysterious blonde woman who keeps showing up around him, Nell agrees to the strict guidelines her Dom sets for the evening. But can she endure all he’s asking of her, physically and mentally, when she has so many unanswered questions?
Yay! Die for Him is out today at All Romance eBooks and Amazon US/Amazon UK. Links to Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc. are coming soon – see this page for the latest as they appear. 😀
Merry Christmas! Once I get Christmas dinner over with, I’ll be spending mine sitting amongst family while they watch TV, pretending I’m not writing smutty things when I am. 😉
I’ve been keeping this under my hat while I got it all worked out, but since the anthology is now on Total-E-Bound’s Coming Soon page… Yes! I’m in the Bound to the Billionaire anthology, which is due out with retailers on November 26th, or for pre-release for those on TEB’s mailing list on October 29th.
I’m kind of nervous, since (as with the Switch anthology), my fellow contributors are absolutely awesome and I’m still the little fish in the gigantic pond of talent. But hopefully I can bring the anthology to a roaring climax. 😉
Here’s the blurb for Die for Him, my short story:
She’s meant to guard his body, not to get up close and personal with it. But anything he wants, he gets—and he wants her.
Billionaires aren’t amongst Mia’s favourite clients. She’s a bodyguard, and in her experience only the morally defunct alpha males make the big bucks. So when she’s assigned to guard Dean Tremaine’s luscious body, she doesn’t expect to be more than superficially attracted to him. He’s getting death threats from disgruntled employees, after all. Why would she find him irresistible?
She might have underestimated how much she wants him, but he’s just as used to getting his own way as she expects. And when her main concern is his safety, the last thing she needs is for him to disregard her instructions, or to distract her with his provocative behaviour.
When he holds a business meeting in one of the private rooms of a local fetish club—a club he just happens to own—Mia’s ability to concentrate on her job is put to the ultimate test. She’s a newbie to the BDSM scene, and the kinky atmosphere of the club is more titillating than she’d ever have guessed. Not only that, but Dean is just as dominant sexually as he is professionally, and despite the death threats and her rejection of his advances, he seems determined to seduce her into submission.
Can Mia persuade the sexy billionaire to keep his hands off her for long enough to protect his life? Or will his reckless pursuit of her affections lead to disaster?
