Happy Hump Day!
For the rest of my week, I thought I’d share some of the exciting things I have coming down the pike in terms of racy releases.
Today’s featured story is Bachelor’s Bait, the third book in the Cocktales series. It’s coming out on Nov. 7. With this series, I introduced the four friends responsible for “fictionally” opening my dream business, Books and Brew. What could be better than a bookstore-slash-bar? LOL. Each story focuses on the romantic interests of one of the girls as they struggle to make their business a success while finding true love. Each book is named after a cocktail and the recipes are included at the beginning of each story.
In Party Naked, Stephanie, the bartender, formed a rather love/hate/lust relationship with hot cop, Jared!
Stephanie Harper is perfectly happy co-owning Books and Brew, where she slings drinks and entertains her friends with cutting wit and a cynical take on love. She’s convinced she has no time for anything deeper than sex; she has a business to run, after all. And her thrice-married mother has proven happy ever after doesn’t exist.
Jarod Nolan begs to differ. Chance has him running into Steph—and giving her a ticket—one morning, but it’s fate that finds him in her place of business that same evening. A sizzling one-night stand ensues, and although Stephanie escapes before he wakes the next morning, Jarod is already sure she’s worth the chase.
Steph’s more than willing to party naked with the hot cop, but she’s adamant they’re driven by lust, not love. Jarod is prepared to prove otherwise, even if it means giving up one of the things he and Stephanie do best…
What’s that old saying? Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder?
In Screwdriver, quiet bookkeeper Jordan falls not only for Books and Brew’s landlord, Gabriel, but for his best friend, Casey as well.
When Jordan Lance isn’t poring over spreadsheets for Books and Brew, she’s fantasizing about the store’s landlord. Too bad she’s squarely in Gabriel’s “just friends” column. Jordan’s prepared to pine forever—until she meets Casey. The handyman is hot, handsome, charming…and Gabriel’s best friend. Suddenly her wicked fantasies are porntastic times two.
Casey has suspected his friend’s interest in Jordan. If he can push them together, he might get Gabriel off the bimbo train he’s been riding. The plan? Jealousy. And it’s working. It’s not long before Gabriel’s deeper feelings for Jordan emerge. Problem is…so do Casey’s. What happens when two friends want the same woman? Red-hot ménage, baby.
Two gorgeous men exploring every inch of her body? Um, yes please! Jordan doesn’t know if threesomes are considered acceptable, but she’s sure of one thing—being this bad feels far too good.
Bachelor’s Bait will take readers back to Portland and the store. As Sophie, the waitress/marketing guru, struggles to find her niche in the business and in her own life, she meets Marc Garrett, a free-aid lawyer, who pushes all her hot buttons.
Sophia Kennedy is determined to chase her own success, rather than ride her father’s coattails. She’s devoted herself to Books and Brew, the business she owns with her three best friends. She doesn’t feel the need to explain herself to anyone, least of all the free-aid lawyer who’s determined to judge her as a society princess. She’d ignore him altogether…if it were up to her mind. But nooooo. Her body just has to have its say—and it’s using words like “gorgeous”, “hot” and “sexy”. Soon, annoyance turns to attraction, verbal sparring to physical satisfaction as the couple is drawn together by a common cause.
Marc Garrett has no time for a relationship. And he certainly doesn’t want a rich society fixture, though the damning evidence below his belt suggests otherwise. The more he comes to know his hardworking princess, the more he wants her, again and again. Marc’s falling hard, but after holding Sophie’s wealth against her, how will she react when she learns of his own rather prosperous roots?
There will be one last book in the series and it’s actually the story I’m currently writing. It’s called Screaming Orgasm and it will feature the last friend, Jayne, who is led to a sexual awakening as Books and Brew regular, Elias, introduces her to the world of BDSM.
