New Release: Spring Break with My Dad’s Best Friend

200x300

He had been the prime star of most of my adolescent fantasies, largely because he was completely inaccessible.

Just when I thought my spring break was going to fizzle out, I ran into Jude at the hotel. And I mean literally ran smack into him as I was coming out of the elevator. His body fit mine like he was made for me, and being in his arms felt like Heaven – for about two seconds until he realized who I was.

He was my dad’s best friend, twice my age, and so far out of my league he probably couldn’t even see my league from where he was.

But I can’t get him out of my head. Even when I’m out partying with my friends, he’s all I can think about. I just know he’s the guy I’ve been waiting for, the one I want to be my first. Of course the whole idea is crazy. Jude would never in a million years go for me.

But what if he did?

This is a longer book – 120 pages in print (paperback should be available in the next couple of days).

Available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited

Cover Reveal: Spring Break with My Dad’s Best Friend

200x300

Coming August 2018

This is the first of a new series of significantly longer older man/younger woman erotic romances that I’m writing to put into Kindle Unlimited. Rather than starting from scratch, I decided to start with a major rewrite of Choosing Cassidy. The original story was about 48 pages long, while the new version is coming in over 100. The old version never felt quite right or complete to me, so now I’m writing it the way it should have been done in the first place. There’s a lot more conflict, the male MC is more alpha, and there’s a much more satisfying resolution. And yes, there’s more steamy, sweaty sex as well. 🙂

Coupled with this release I’ve updated almost all of the book covers in my entire catalog to make them cleaner and shinier and improve the branding, both for the different series and overall. I’ve also redesigned my website from the ground up with a much-needed new look, better layout, and updated content.

Welcome to 2018, kids. It’s a whole new ballgame.

New Release: Neurasthenia

200x300.jpg

Professor Feversham’s Academy of Young Women’s Correctional Education #5

I assure you that your daughter is in the best of hands, my lord.”

Pauline Durant’s neurasthenia has stolen her life for the last two years, and the greatest doctors in Europe have been unable to cure her. Professor Feversham is her father’s last hope for returning her to normalcy. But hers is the most challenging case he has yet seen, and his initial efforts seem fruitless.

It must be a matter of stimulation. She must have more to break down her barriers and get through to her, allowing her release.”

Will the Professor’s latest invention—the violet ray device—provide the extra stimulation Pauline requires? Will it cure her dreadful neurasthenia and finally grant her the release she so desperately needs?

Available on:

It should be out on B&N soon, but they’re taking their sweet time. Please leave a review if you would, and look for Feversham #6, Submission, coming soon.

FYI

Due to changes hostile to erotica which have been made or are currently underway by certain ebook distributors, I will be transferring some (or most) of my romance and erotic romance titles over to my Olivia Blake pen name.

I apologize for the confusion this will inevitably cause, but I believe it is the best way to protect both myself and the readers who enjoy those books. My first priority is moving Obsessed and Relentless. I’ll post an update as I move on to other titles.

FYI – Housekeeping

I’m doing some cleanup on my catalog. Lots of updated covers for older series to make it more clear that they are part of a series. I’ve also moved several titles that are fantasy/paranormal into a separate pen name – Ember Frost – to make things easier on all of us since they don’t really fit well with my main catalog. This includes:

Cinderella: The Wicked Truth
Claiming Princess Kailen
Sidonie’s Tale
Richelle’s Tale
Captive of the Beast Men
Prey of the Beast Men

I’m considering moving the Professor Feversham series under that pen name as well, but haven’t made up my mind yet. I’ve changed the pricing on the Babysitter Diaries stories to 99 cents and the bundle to $2.99. Depending on how it works at that price, it may be a permanent thing.

Speaking of price, I know a lot of people complain about spending $2.99 on short erotica. There’s a reason it commands a premium. The distributors – Amazon, B&N, Google, iTunes, Kobo – do not like erotica. It makes a lot of money for them, but they don’t like it and they hammer the people who publish it every chance they get. Having erotica titles in your catalog means that you are at risk every single day of having titles blocked or your account shut down.

At least once a month someone decides to arbitrarily change their nonexistent content guidelines and block stories. In August B&N shut down my publishing account which I’d had with them since 2011. Why? Because they didn’t like the titles on some of my books. Anything with babysitter or virgin in them was declared to be in violation without any warning. So my account got shut down because of the titles of some books which I’d had published with them since 2011 and 2012. Mind you, it wasn’t the *content* of the stories which was a problem – it was just the *titles*. I’ve since republished 95% of my books on B&N through an aggregator service by changing those offending titles, but it has cost me I don’t even want to think about how many thousands of dollars in lost sales over the last six months. Plus now I have to keep up with separate copies of covers/books for B&N because the titles are now different than for everyone else.

And this sort of thing happens constantly.  I’ve got something like 20-30 blocked books on Amazon because someone arbitrarily decided that something in the title or text violated their “about what you’d expect” imaginary content guidelines. There are 37 blocked on Kobo. I gave up keeping track on iTunes. And every time this happens it has an impact on my sales and income. When iTunes blocked Taking Kelsey, the first (free) story in the Preacher’s Virgin Daughters series, it cut my income on their site by about a third. They left all the other books in the series, but without the first book sales on the rest tanked and dropped to almost nothing.

That risk is why erotica stories cost more. People publishing Regency romance or post-apoc zombie stories don’t have to deal with these issues, and don’t risk their livelihoods every time they hit “Publish” on a new title.

Seth Garrett didn’t look like a teacher. His short, medium-brown hair was mussed as though he ran his fingers through it—probably from frustration with me. Deep set, green-gray eyes regarded the world with weary cynicism from a face that was too hard, too angled, to be classically handsome. Ever since I’d moved into his class in January I’d spent hours memorizing the stark lines and planes of that face, until I could see it perfectly in my mind. There wasn’t a girl at school who hadn’t sighed over him, and fantasized about him at least a little.

But I was the one who was going to get him.

I wasn’t supposed to want her. I didn’t want to want her. I was her teacher, she was my student, and the whole situation was a disaster in the making. I should have gone to someone for help. I should have had her transferred to another class. I should have kept my temper and libido firmly in check when she was in the room. But I didn’t do any of those things. Maybe it was because forbidden fruit really is the sweetest, or maybe it was just because I wasn’t done self-destructing yet. Either way, I did nothing to stop it.

And then it was too late.

This is part one of a four part serial. If you don’t like serials, I will release all four installments as a single book once they are completed.

It should be available from B&N and iTunes shortly
