I was in the mood to create a new series so Secret Confessions was born. Each story will feature a therapist and a woman who is her client who reveals their deepest, darkest secrets. I like to think of these stories as erotica with maybe just a splash of romance.
The first story is Maddie. Here’s the blurb, excerpt and cover. I hope you’ll buy a copy and I’d love to hear what you think about this new series.
Introducing a new series…
Secret Confessions, therapist led appointments where the client tells all.
All about their desires, wants and needs, and very intimate details of their sexual exploits that aren’t always vanilla.
This time it’s Maddie who just needs someone to talk to.
All she ever wanted was to break free of the dead-end job with the boss from hell. She wants a better life and to earn more money so she can buy a home.
During a chance encounter with two girls at the coffee shop, she’s introduced to a new line of business where she’ll exchange sex for money.
What she doesn’t count on is the knowing the true identity of one of her clients and then slowly falling for him.
The therapist taps me lightly on the shoulder. I sit up like the room is on fire.
“Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you. You were fast asleep,” she says.
I guess she’s right because I’ve been dreaming about how I got started with the agency.
I swing my legs off the couch, stretch my toes and then wrap the blanket tightly around my shoulders like I’m suddenly out in below zero weather.
“You feel like you’re ready now?”
“You want to talk about him?”
I bite my lip. I know I have to because he’s the reason I’m here. I need someone to tell me that what I’m doing is okay. I’ve not been a bad girl.
“Sure,” I say. I run my toes through the plush rug, feeling the softness invade the skin between them. It feels good. Feels almost as good as the first time I was with him.
Yes, finally a new release. This one is in my Fantasy LLC series. It was in my head for what seemed like forever and I finally gave myself a kick up the butt and said, write it.
I decided to take the main character on a time travel trip to Regency England where she meets a couple of very naughty, sexy rakes.
I know you all love Regency erotica as much as I enjoy writing it.
So I hope you’ll check this one out…it’s just 99 cents.
Yes, I know I need to do some catching up with posting news about new releases and re-released back titles. I’ve been busy teaching and coaching…I’m also designing jewelry and opening an Etsy store…more about that in an upcoming post.
For now, I wanted to let you know that the first two books in my Big Sky Cowboys (yes, those sexy Monroe brothers), series have been re-released. I have to say these stories are near and dear to my heart. I wrote them during the first time I took the NaNoWriMo challenge. I get rights back to Rory later this month so that should be released during the third or fourth week of April. In the meantime, here are the covers for you to check out-
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.
I just released my first release of 2019. It’s the fifth title in my Fantasy LLC series.
This one is titled Thrill Me and is just 99 cents. Here’s the blurb, excerpt and cover.
I hope you enjoy it. (Look for another release next week).
Fantasy LLC, an exclusive organization where only a lucky few get to live out their wildest sexual dreams and let their inhibitions run free.
It’s not for the faint of heart and money or fame can’t buy you a way in.
An anonymous panel of philanthropists decides who will be the lucky recipient of the month. Application forms and essays are judged on their creativity and how turned on they get by what the applicant wishes for.
Winners are everyday people, bored housewives, teachers, doctors, virgins, and people just like Hannah who was lucky enough to be picked as this month’s recipient…
Hannah wonders what’s inside the mysterious letter waiting for her when she arrives home from work one night.
It seems her three best friends have revealed her sexual fantasy to a secret organization that awards nights of pure bliss.
Hannah was drunk when she revealed all the things she’d like to do to a man and have done to her.
Will reality live up to her dream? Will the hunky guy from Fantasy LLC be able to thrill her?
Be still hands, be still.
They continued to shake like I’d overdosed on caffeine. My heartbeat fluttered in my chest, and I was sure a triggle of perspiration ran between my breasts.
I’d never done anything like this before and wasn’t sure if I had the nerve to go through with it. My instructions were to enter the house, then walk up the stairs to the master bedroom. There would be a painting of a vase of flowers on the wall and behind it a safe that I’d need to open.
Then the game would begin.
I lifted the painting off the wall and sat it on the floor. Glancing at my palm, I checked the combination sequence I’d been given.
Twenty-three right, thirty-two left, and then nineteen right.
Taking a deep breath to try and slow down my heartbeat, I turned the dial to number twenty-three. Just how had my friends managed to talk me into revealing every little detail of my fantasy?
My head pounded, my ears rang as my heartbeat picked up again. I turned the lock right to nineteen.
I jumped back as the safe door flung open and almost hit me in the face. Inside sat a box of condoms, some DVDs, and a pair of stockings and garters.
Yeah, right down to the last detail, all right. I swallowed twice. Could I do this?
My hand hovered near the button I’d been instructed to push when I was ready to move to level two of the game.
“Hold it right there,” a man’s voice said. I froze.
I hadn’t pressed the button yet, so how did he know I was ready?
Was I ready? No, I didn’t think I had the nerve for this.
“Okay, turn around very slowly. And keep your hands up in the air where I can see them at all times.”
Okay, this was it. I couldn’t get out of it now.
Once again, it’s been forever since I posted anything to the site. As we’ almost the end of the year, this seems like a great time to fill you in on what I’ve been doing and what’s coming up.
I did re-release all the stories in the Love Cowboy Style trilogy. It’s now Cowboy Crazy and the three stories are sold separately and also as an all in one e-book, plus, there’s a print version too.
Next year, I get rights back to 12 more stories, including the last of the Perfect Pairings and the first ones in both my Kalispell Shifters and Big Sky County series.
I’m currently working on another Fantasy LLC story, and after that it will be another story in my Regency Rakes and Rogues series. I have lots of stories planned for 2019 so time permitting, I’m hoping to get at least six new ones published…and yes, I’ll be posting more here in the New Year.
Thank you for reading my books and staying with me during what has turned out to be a slightly drought year for new erotic tales.
Here’s wishing you the happiest of holiday seasons and health and happiness for 2019.
Yes, I know it’s been forever since I posted to the site or even released a new book but projects have been taking up most of my time than planned and revamping back titles is more work than you’d think.
I recently got rights back to my Love Cowboy Style trilogy. I’ve decided to change the title to Cowboy Crazy. I’ve just released the first story which is the re-release of Courted by a Cowboy. November 1st, I’ll be releasing Breakfast with a Cowboy and December 1st, Christmas with a Cowboy. Mid-December I’ll be putting the stories together for a print book and next year I’ll be adding brand new stories to the series.
Whitney James was at a crossroads in her life. After a scary incident in the classroom where she teaches high school English, she flees Chicago and heads back to where she was raised in Missoula, Montana. Thinking that maybe a career change is what she needs, she attends a first year law school lecture and sees Colt Robson. Whitney used to date Colt’s son Mark, in high school. Seeing Colt again, but this time older, and with just as much sex appeal, she realizes that she’s always had a crush on him. Now divorced, Colt is immediately smitten with the older and curvier Whitney. Will she accept his invitation for dinner and if so, will she be willing to be courted by a romantic, old-fashioned cowboy?
Whitney stood too, not knowing if she should just exit and pretend she hadn’t recognized Colt, or stay behind and say hi. She wasn’t the type of person to be rude so she made her way down the stairs to the front of the auditorium. He stuffed papers into his briefcase but then glanced over at her.
“So how have you been Whitney?” So he had definitely recognized her.
She stood frozen on the step, hugging her bag to her chest. “I’ve been good. How about you?”
“Never better. Your name wasn’t on the list of students.”
“No, I was just observing.”
He walked over to her and she got a whiff of his cologne. It was the same fragrance he’d worn all those years ago. She’d loved being in their house when he came home from work. He would walk into the kitchen, and she’d inhale the spicy scent. She hadn’t smelled it since, and now it brought back a flood of memories. She remembered the great food his wife cooked, and the Monopoly all four of them used to play out on the patio by the swimming pool she loved so much.
She’d forgotten what gorgeous blue eyes he had. Mark’s had been brown. In fact, they didn’t share any facial features, and Whitney had often wondered if they’d adopted him and maybe never told him.
And his lips are still so inviting.
Here’s the cover-
And finally…yes, with the re-release of this story I’m all caught up with the back titles. Well, at least until October when I get rights back to the next one.
I promise I’ll be writing something new very soon.
This story was previously called Then Came You but I’ve changed the title to All I’ve Ever Wanted and made it part of my Cowboy Tough series because Connor is definitely cowboy tough and all he ever wanted was Gillian so I thought it all seemed really fitting to this story (which is actually one of my favorites).
Hope you’ll check it out soon-
Good Things Are Worth Waiting For…
Connor O’Riordan had his heart set on Gillian Matthews the first day she stepped onto his ranch but the only problem was she had a boyfriend. He’d made her promise that if the two of them ever broke up she’d tell him.
Gillian is a woman of her word and when Connor finds out she’s now available he’ll do anything to woo and romance the lady of his dreams. The best way to start…invite her to spend Thanksgiving at his ranch.
Save the best for last.
“Yeah, we’ve had some too but nothing that stuck around for long.”
She wondered if he’d taken her call in his office. Gillian imagined him sitting at the desk, leaning back in the leather chair that most people would have thrown out or donated, but he’d told her he’d hung onto it because it had belonged to both his dad and his grandpa. His cowboy boot-clad feet were probably resting on it…hat, also cowboy, pushed back away from his forehead.
“So when are you coming back here to show me all the new drugs you have for my animals?” he asked.
The sexy voice jolted her out of her train of thought.
“It won’t be until after the New Year. Jensen Pharmaceuticals has cut back on trips for all its sales reps.”
“Well damn. What’s the world coming to when a pretty lady can’t pay me as many visits as she once did?”
Gillian laughed. Connor was the biggest flirt and flatterer she’d ever met. Had been since the first time she’d introduced herself to him two years ago. Not that she didn’t love all the attention he bestowed upon her. She’d thought he was like that with all women until she’d taken him out for a meal on the company’s expense and he hadn’t batted an eyelid at one lady all evening. A few, including the female bartender at the restaurant, had been drop-dead gorgeous but he’d kept his eyes and attention only on Gillian the whole time they’d dined together.
She put her fingers on her lips.
Connor had kissed her on the last visit to his ranch. She’d been packing away the new vaccines she’d been showing him when he’d grabbed her, pulled her in close to his body and his very obvious erection had pushed into her belly. She hadn’t found it inappropriate because the sexual tension between them had been brewing for well over a year. She knew it and he’d obviously sensed it too.
It had been oh so tempting to get lost in the moment and take things to the next stage. Gillian had imagined him picking her up, carrying her to his ranch house, them ripping off one another’s clothes, kissing non-stop as they headed up to the bedroom. The only thing that had prevented that from happening was the image of Davey, Gillian’s boyfriend of three years, popping into her head as Connor eased his tongue into her mouth. She very gently pulled away so as not to offend the sexy cowboy. She hadn’t been tactful just because he was her best customer but because he was an all-around nice guy and she had a soft spot for him.
“You’re thinking about him… I mean, your boyfriend, aren’t you?” he’d asked as he’d stroked the edge of her cheek with his pinkie as they’d gazed into one another’s eyes after the kiss.
“Yeah, I’m afraid to say I’m not the type of woman who cheats.”
He’d tapped her on the nose. “I can appreciate that. In fact, I like that quality in a woman. The problem is now you’ve told me what a loyal lover you are it makes me wish you were my lady more than ever.”
She’d given him a quick peck on the cheek in response to that very nice compliment. Under any other circumstances she would have gone ahead and let him kiss her, undress her, make love to her or whatever he had planned for the two of them. It could have been an awkward moment for them but in no way had she felt embarrassed by what had happened between them. In fact, she’d been flattered because Connor was a hell of a nice-looking guy. A little over six feet in height, baby blue eyes, dark hair that sometimes had a wave to it—on some of her visits to the ranch she’d even seen some cute curls sneaking out from underneath his cowboy hat.
“If I don’t leave now, I’ll be sorry and I’ll also miss my flight because I need to return the rental car first,” she’d told him.
“If you and your boyfriend ever break up will you promise me you’ll tell me, right?”
Not that she ever saw her and Davey going their separate ways. In fact, she guessed the whole marriage, white picket fence and babies were in their future but she didn’t want to deflate Connor’s hope that one day she’d be free to sleep with him.
“Sure, you’ll be the first to know.”
