Only Scandal Will Do (by Jenna Jaxon): “He has the woman of his dreams, but what price will he have to pay to win her heart? ”
The Alpha’s Hunger (by Renee Rose): “Though Ben knows a human girl is no match for the fearsome lusts of an alpha wolf, she ignites in him a hunger he can barely contain. Can he resist the urge to mark her as his own and take her harder than she can imagine?”
Author Natasha Blackthorne writes some of the most compelling historical romance you can find online. For a brief time, she’s bundled four of her awesome books into one box set and has it listed on Amazon as just 99 cents for pre-order. It’s described as, “Erotic Romance set in Regency Era America with heroines who are Wild, Wicked and Wanton.” Included in the bundle are her books, Grey’s Lady, White Lace and Promises, Alex’s Angel, and Emily’s Seduction. This is a fabulous opportunity to get some wild, wicked and wanton historical romance for a pittance. Here’s where you get Wild, Wicked and Wanton: A Hot Historical Romance Bundle.
I don’t know how many of you realize that I have a novelette available at Amazon. This little extended short story is fun and sexy. Psyched Out is available for free, from today through Sunday only. It’s rated 5 stars. If you’d like a quick break while waiting at the doctor’s office, or in line to carpool your kids, this is the kind of snack that’ll satisfy. Here’s a little teaser:
When Lu Shenandoah and Philip Pines meet at a professional conference, there is an instant attraction. Unfortunately, Lu is sure that a famous guy like Philip wouldn’t be interested in a woman as awkward as she. And there’s her embarrassing interest in BDSM to deal with. She’s sure she could never admit that she’d secretly like to submit.
Philip, a very prominent author of a bestselling self-help book, is sure his BDSM dominance would overwhelm sweet and innocent Lu and it keeps him from pursuing her even though he’s drawn to her kittenish charm.
There are some really awkward moments when they run into each other at an all-inclusive island paradise, but how can they resist serendipity?
I’m excited to say that I’ve now received enough answers to my interview questions to make going forward with Fallen Queen (working title), my mystery, erotic, romance set in a drag club in Los Angeles. It took me a while to connect with drag queens because I had to network my way in. But answers from queens like Marilyn Merlot (pictured — isn’t she pretty?) really made a difference. I’m starting the writing today. This is a story I’ll be taking my time on, folks, and will be shopping to agents. I think its themes and plot will lend itself to a bigger publisher and a wider audience. If you know of any agents looking for a good property, please let me know. I have a short list to work from, but any foot in the door would be welcome. I haven’t had an agent since my second book (he wasn’t doing anything much for me, so we parted ways), because I’ve been able to sell to small press steadily. However, some things are just bigger and need to reach a market that’s less of a niche. Fallen Queen is one of those books.
Thank you for joining me here today!
