Adding to My Naughty Collection and Yours

March 7, 2013

As many of you are aware, I have been anxiously awaiting the cover art for my latest naughty number, The Wedding. Well, guess what? The wait is over! Not only do I have my precious cover, I also have a publish date, which will be April 5th. Go ahead and take a minute to put a huge circle accompanied by a hot pink kiss on your calendar, folks. I’ll wait right here…Oh, and while I’m waiting, let me just mention that at the bottom of this post there will be an opportunity for you to get your copy of The Wedding for FREE before the publish date.

Okay, so here is the cover:

TheWedding, erotic short

What do you think? Cute, huh? I think Karen (the main character) would approve. Allan (her landlord and guy she slept with once) probably wouldn’t care either way, to be honest. But he’s more of a go-with-the-flow kind of guy so he definitely wouldn’t object to the cupcakes, and that is good enough for me.

So now that I’ve revealed the cover and publish date, it’s now time to offer up a blurb and an excerpt of The Wedding. Here goes…

The Wedding, blurb

Karen is not the type to attend a wedding with a guy she’s only slept with once but, in a rare display of empathy, she agrees to accompany her new landlord Allan to this sure-to-be-boring function. Fortunately, Karen knows how to have a good time, and she’s pretty sure she and Allan can make their own fun…even if they have to do it in the outdoors just steps away from a couple hundred stuffy wedding guests.

The Wedding, excerpt

Carefully balancing the overflowing glass in one hand and a smutty paperback in the other, I sauntered into the living room. After placing both beside my open laptop on the modern glass coffee table in front of me, my body sank into the ridiculously comfortable sofa. Where did Allan find such a gem? My landlord—and guy I had sex with once—had excellent taste. I kicked off my hot pink stilettos, tucked my feet under me, and wrapped a cream-coloured cashmere throw around my lower body.

I reached for my book but paused when the familiar bloop bloop of Skype announced someone was video calling. Scooping up my laptop, I clicked “accept.” Allan’s charming face appeared on screen.

“Hello Allan, It’s nice to see you,” I said, amused. The guy just Skyped me three days ago. This was starting to become a regular thing. Truthfully I didn’t mind. If it were not for the fact that Allan was in Philadelphia while I was stuck here in Chicago, the guy would be much more than just a one-time lover.

“Hi Karen, I’m not, uh, interrupting am I? I can call back later…” His voice trailed off. I rolled my eyes.

“No, Allan. What can I do for you? Would you like me to get naked for the camera again?”

His face blushed to the colour of my heels. “Well, that was a fun experiment. Perhaps I could hold off my question until later,” he answered. Even through the shitty quality of video, his eyes flashed, complimenting the wicked smile smeared across his face. Good. Confident Allan was back, if only momentarily.

“What question is that, baby?” In the little corner of the screen that held my image, I could see my lips curled upward, matching Allan’s expression.

“Oh, um, I’m going to be in town next weekend,” he said.

“Mmm, I like where this is going,” I interrupted.

“I have to attend a wedding. My best friend from childhood is getting hitched that Saturday.”

“Not the one you caught in the shower with your ex and his wife?”

Allan’s eyes dulled. “No, not him,” he answered. “A real friend.”

A tiny stab of guilt landed in my gut. I considered apologizing for bringing up the painful memory, but dismissed the thought. That happened, like, eight months ago. The guy should just get over it.

“So what, you want to meet after the wedding? I’m free on Sunday so that could work out perfectly.”

“Well, no…er…”

I rolled my eyes again, a twinge of annoyance fluttering in my stomach.

“What can I do for you, Allan?”

“Come to the wedding with me?”

What?!

“As your date? To the church and everything?”

“Well that’s generally how it works, yes,” he said, his tone dry and a little hurt.

“I, um, well…”

The Wedding is a follow up to my sexy short, The Rental, and although it is definitely not prerequisite reading, you might want to pick up a copy of The Rental while you’re waiting for April 5th to roll around. It is a fun and naughty little read that has received nothing but five star reviews so far. It is also a whopping 99 cents on Amazon so what do you have to lose, really? And, just for funzies, I’ll offer up a copy of The Wedding to anyone who leaves a link in the comments section of this post to their review/rating of The Rental, be it on Amazon, Goodreads, their own blog or whatever. Even a short Facebook update or a tweet would work. I am not picky, I just want to know you have read The Rental and what you thought of it.

The Wedding is now available for pre-order at a savings of 20% on the publisher’s website.

    Great cover! I’ve been meaning to check out The Rental, actually, so this is a good reminder.

    Here is the link to my blog review of The Rental. Same review is up on Goodreads and Amazon.

    Great fun that book. Can’t wait to get back to Karen and Allen. 🙂 Cool cover by the way.
