Hi, all. This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces again. It’s FINISHED at last! Keep an eye on the Double Dare Page - I’ll reveal the cover and announce the expected release date SOON! For now, this will have to do This snippet is from early in the novella, as Amy is going into the Double Dare Club. The doorman is selecting his evening’s prospects from among the female clientele as they enter the club. “That’s an awfully nice dress for a dump like this, Sweetheart.” She licked her lips before answering, causing heat to flare in his eyes. “It’s my favorite, so I decided what the hell.” “If you get tired of the jerks inside, come on back out and keep me company a while. I know how to treat a lady.” His voice, rumbly and intimate, promised a good time. Come back next week, for Six Sentences from the final … Continue reading →

This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces, my Erotic Contemporary Romance Novella, Book One in my new series, The Double Dare Club. I’m finally closing in on The End for this one! I only have the final scene left to write and edit, so just a couple hours work, and I can type “The End”. In this snippet, Amy and Jesse have left a nasty confrontation with Amy’s Ex that nearly tanked their lovely evening. With the rest of the night salvaged, Jesse wants revenge, so he searches out a member of the Double Dare Club Security. “Sounds like the guy. Listen, Ray, he’s been hassling my friend here. Said some stuff that made her feel really bad. Is there any way you could make sure she doesn’t have to deal with him anymore tonight? Until we leave here, at least.” Jesse slipped the bouncer a bill, concealing the … Continue reading →
Welcome To The Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop! One random commenter will win a copy of my BFF’s new release The Devil Wants A China Doll! We’re here to celebrate what makes Romance Heroes soooooo damn HOT! One of the hottest is my BFF / CP Azure Boone‘s Rone Kreed, from her new release The Devil Wants A China Doll, just out from Loose Id Publishing. Rone has resigned himself to a life without love, since he realized the Demon that lives within him can use him to claim women’s souls. Then he meets Sheeku and falls desperately in love. He’ll go to ANY length to protect Sheeku from the demon, even if it means he can never have her. Now, just to look at, former Marine Rone is pretty hot, even with the scars marking up his chest from the ceremony that put the demon in him. … Continue reading →
This week’s Six Sunday is from the same Erotic Romance Novella the last couple have been from. Now, last week, the plan was that this story’s title would be “Dare To Stare”. Since then, during edits, the focus of the story has changed, and the entire concept evolved. This story has become the foundation of a series of contemporary Erotic Romances. The series, titled The Double Dare Club, is based on the nightclub introduced in this story, the Double Dare. For the series, all the couples will be connected in some way to the Double Dare – one might work there, they might meet there, or meet in a fender-bender in the street out front. Because of the change in focus for the current story, “Dare To Stare” no longer fits as the title. The new title, referring to the smex-in-the-closet scene, and other incidents, is Tight Spaces. The following … Continue reading →

Last week I posted Six Sentences from my Work In Progress, an untitled erotic contemporary romance, and asked if anyone had ideas for a title. A couple of you had wonderful suggestions. Well, now it has a title, thanks to my friend and critique partner, Azure Boone. Having the advantage of reading a major scene, she suggested “Dare To Stare”, because of the scene where the hero catches the heroine staring at him. Instead of looking away, she continues to stare, bold as brass. So, Dare To Stare it is. Amy followed her gaze and recognized Jessie’s powerful body nearing the table. Once more, his stride reminded her of a big cat stalking prey. A little shiver danced across her skin with the realization that she was the prey. The tip of her tongue slid across her lower lip, anticipating his taste. Jessie paused, his hot gaze melting her. Her anger faded … Continue reading →
Today we have Erotic Romance Author Malia Mallory to talk about the value of a book’s cover. These days, the cover is more important than ever, since it has to catch the reader’s eye all by itself – no cute store displays, no table in the center aisle, no big shelf stocked with a hundred copies. Just that lonely little cover there in the virtual bookstore, along with all the others. Now, here’s Malia: Enticing Erotica Covers I recently decided some of my covers needed an upgrade. I’d been looking around at the fabulous covers of my author friends and feeling jealous. In fact, I was becoming concerned it might even be hurting my sales. I needed to step it up. So, what to do? I contacted a cover artist who had done some work I admired. She did a new design concept for my ABCs of Erotica series. I … Continue reading →
