Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over–Re-Release

Teaser social mediaWhen I published my first erotic romance Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over in early June, I had no idea what I was doing.  I’ve learned a lot as I’ve gone along and now that my exclusivity agreement with Amazon has expired, I’m releasing a new and improved version through Draft2Digital on September 15.  It’s still available on Amazon.  And it’s available for pre-order on Nook, iTunes, and Kobo.

If you’re looking for a smart, sexy adventure, take a look at Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over.  And thanks for supporting Indie Authors.

Shameless Plug–It’s A Spicy Hot Read!

Teaser 8

Once upon a time, I wrote and posted chapters of Luke & Bella on this blog serially, one chapter at a time.  In June, I independently published my first spicy romantic novel, Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over, on Kindle Direct Publishing and removed the chapters from WordPress.

It’s been getting 5 Star Reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Here’s what people are saying.

  • A sensual story with magnetic characters…”
  • The inconspicuous cover hides how hot this book got and I must say i wasn’t expecting such a sweet and spicy romance.
  • “This story is as cool as it is hot…Very cool…. As for hot – well it gets kind of steamy (smile).”

It’s a hot read for a hot summer.  Check it out!  It’s even available for FREE with Kindle Unlimited.  And thank you for supporting Indie Authors.

Get It While It’s Hot!

Just for fun, here’s a taste…

Chapter 1
Bella Grant checked her trunk again. Three months was a long time. What have I forgotten? She frowned. Don’t be stupid. You can get anything you need. You aren’t going to the Amazon rain forest.

After calling down to the front desk for bell service, she made one last tour of the suite to make sure she wasn’t forgetting anything. Hearing the knock, she opened the door to find the bellman waiting in the hallway. She stepped back and admitted him to the suite. “It’s just these,” waving her hand to indicate her trunk, cosmetic case, and camera bag.

The bellman hesitated when he saw the trunk. Inwardly, Bella smiled. It was huge, a vintage Louis Vuitton steamer trunk that had once belonged to her grandfather. She jokingly referred to it as her ‘big-ass Louis’. Fortunately, the bellman was too well-trained to complain and he managed to get her things on the cart.

Bella didn’t wait, but went ahead and took the elevator to the lobby. Stopping at the desk, she returned her key and checked out. The bill was covered, of course, by the network. Her new employer.

She’d been in television for the last fifteen years, always in local news as a reporter in several places, but most recently as a morning show anchor in Akron. She’d hated Ohio, but had taken the job in order to add ‘Anchor’ to her resume. But this was different.

When she’d seen the posting in the trade magazine, she knew this was the opportunity she’d been waiting for. She’d be hosting a new travel show for TLC. According to the executive producer, Charlie, who’d hired her, she would have carte blanche to do what she wanted. He’d tell her where to go and the rest would be up to her. Fill the time. Make it interesting. Make it unique. Which was just what she intended to do.

The bellman loaded her things into the cab. She thanked him and gave him a generous tip before stepping into the back of the taxi. Her thoughts raced as they made their way through thick Manhattan traffic toward the airport. She didn’t even know where her first assignment would take her. They would find out at the ticket counter.

They. She’d meet her photog at the airport. Her mind wandered there. She didn’t even know his name. What would he be like? Young? Old? Experienced? She was sure Charlie wouldn’t hire someone with no experience.
A small smile played across her face. It wouldn’t suck too badly if he was attractive. Her social life was virtually nonexistent. Who had the time? Still…

Her thoughts came back to the present as the taxi pulled into the Departures lane of the airport. “Which airline, miss?” the driver asked. “Virgin Atlantic,” she replied. He stopped at the appropriate curb. Skycaps jumped into motion unloading her bags. “I’d like them stored please. I need to go to the ticket counter,” she told them.

They handed Bella the luggage receipts and she walked into the terminal.

Great Romantic Reads

Continuing Luke & Bella’s Watch This Space series…

It’s summer and everybody’s ready for something to read at the beach.  I want to talk about a writer who’s work I really admire.  Maggie Carpenter writes romantic stories with a BDSM flair, emphasis on spanking.  I’ve read so many of her books I feel a bit like a stalker, but when I’m in the mood to read something I know I’m going to enjoy, I head over to Amazon and snag one I haven’t yet read.

Where do I even begin?  My first taste was The Strict British Barrister.  Brittany Carter books a solo cruise in an attempt to break out of her safe life back home, fantasizing about meeting a tall, dark stranger who’ll sweep her off her feet.  Enter Duncan Rhys-Davies, on board to finish writing his latest erotic novel under a pen name, of course, because in his other life, he’s a well respected barrister.  This is the first book of a trilogy.  Go ahead and buy them all, trust me.

After devouring this trilogy, I dove into the next one, The British Billionaire Bachelor.  It had me at the tagline, Every man’s a playboy until he meets the right woman.  Real estate agent Belle Somers is tasked with finding the right property for the particular taste of London billionaire Simon Sinclair.  Can she show him something he likes, or has he already found the object of his desire?

Next I started on her Cowboys After Dark series.  Because is there anything hotter than a cowboy with Dominant tendencies?  I think not.  My favorite so far has been Book Two in that series, The Cowboy From Down Under.  Professional photographer Emma Harrison is sent to Australia on assignment.  There she meets handsome Derrick Palmer, wealthy ranch owner and cowboy Dominant.  Can two people from opposite ends of the planet find love?

Looking for your next romantic read?  Check out Maggie Carpenter.

EXCERPT

Belle took a long, deep breath. His voice had washed over her like a long hot shower, heating her body and sending a rush of wetness between her legs. He was a strict disciplinarian, there was nothing romantic or sexy about his reprimand, but still it had caused her body to respond with a deep, carnal longing.

“Yes, Sir,” she managed, lifting her head from the pillow.

“Very well. Your skirt is quite thin so I will allow it to remain in place, but there will come a time when I will bare your bottom for punishment.”

Belle shivered at the thought, then sighed with relief. Had he lifted her skirt and pulled down her panties, he would have seen the glistening moistness between her lips peeping…

Watch This Space

Having posted my first serial novel Luke & Bella:Two Streets Over twice in its entirety on this blog, I wanted to do something different.  For one thing, I’ve been posting chapters of my second book, Rannigan’s Redemption. 

As I get closer to publishing Luke & Bella on KDP, I want to maybe move this blog into a platform for promoting other Indie Authors whose work I enjoy.  I suppose it will be a more expanded version of my Pandora’s Reading List page.

The first book I want to talk about is Second Chances: Sammy’s Story by Annie Edmonds.  Annie Edmonds is also the writer of the terrific blog, Sex With Annie, and I’d highly recommend giving her a follow as well.

In Second Chances, Samantha Raine, young beautiful widow and refugee from an unhappy first marriage, is doing a favor house sitting for friends in beautiful Siesta Key.  Is Master Jake Monroe her knight in shining armor?

Her friends the O’Haras think he is.  What’s more, they believe Sammie is the perfect submissive to Jake’s strong, confident Dominant. It’s a great romance with a BDSM theme. I’m anxiously awaiting the sequel.
