The latest in The Martinis and Chocolate Book Club series is now available for pre-order!

Tori Cordell’s dating the sexy cop who moved in next door. She’s dated some losers in the past, but Ian Taggert is a winner. When she finds out he’s known as the Devil Dom, she’s surprised and a little angry. He better have a damn good reason for his lie of omission.

Ian Taggert has waited a long time to find a woman like Tori. She’s smart and beautiful, but clearly a vanilla-type woman. If it means holding on to her, he’s willing to leave his Dominant side in the past and start a new life.

Ian’s floored when Tori wants him just the way he is, dominance and all. They fall more deeply in love as she learns the heaven to be found in submitting to her Devil Dom. But heaven can quickly turn to hell. Tori is attacked, and Ian will need to solve the toughest case of his career if he wants to keep her safe.

[Siren Everlasting Classic: Erotic Consensual BDSM Cowboy Romance, older hero, spanking, sex toys, HEA] Noelle Carter is in Montana to help with her sister’s wedding. She didn’t plan on needing to be rescued from a dangerous storm, nor did she plan on falling for the sexiest man she’s ever met. When she finds out he’s the head of a family of Dominants, she knows she should move slowly, but her feelings are too great. She plunges into a relationship with him, reveling in the passion he can arouse with just a simple touch. Cam Hunter knows he’s a strict Dom. He never thought he’d find the perfect woman and submissive, but Noelle has stolen his heart. She’s turned him inside out and upside down. One minute he wants to kiss her senseless and the next he wants to spank her bottom bright red. When Noelle is hurt, he knows it’s no accident. Someone is targeting her, and if Cam wants a lifetime with his woman, he’ll need to find the person responsible.

I’m Half Done, Dammit! Or The First Half of the Book is the Toughest

For me, the first half of the book is the toughest.  Once I round that corner, the second half seems to fly out of the tips of my fingers.  I can’t type fast enough to keep up with the story, pouring from my exhausted, aching brain.

Not so, the first half.  The first half is slow.  Painful.  Revised.  Revised again.  Scenes added.  Scenes deleted.  Character arcs that were supposed to be one way morph into something different because some bossy character just had to do something different.  My beta reader gets that look on her face and says something like, “Well, it’s a nice story so far, but, well, nothing really happened.”

Oh crap!  Did I forget to add the conflict?

Revise again.

Did I mention that I outline before I write?  I swear I create an outline just so my characters can laugh at it and go merrily on their way, doing whatever the hell they want.   The only good news is that I can use the same outline for the next book because this book won’t resemble that outline in any shape or form when I’m done.   Okay, it does resemble the outline, but there have been many major and minor deviations.

So, I’m starting a new book this week.  I have my character sketches, complete with growth arcs, and an outline with external conflict.  Here I go.  Let’s see how close the book is when I’m done.  I’ll say what I always say when I start a new book.

I’m going to stick to this outline, dammit.

 

 

Her Colorado Pleasures (Spirit, CO 5) Is Now On Amazon! #menage #BDSM

Her Colorado Pleasures is now available on Amazon!  So excited about this one!  Evan and Sin are hotter than… well… sin!

“Do you mean that?” Sin’s voice sounded strained.

“Yes, I do. I’ve never actually given up control to anyone. But I fantasize about it. Since meeting you, I fantasize about you being in control and I fantasize about the dungeon toys at the store.”

It was easier saying the words with the blanket of darkness. But the contentment was short lived as Sin flicked the bedside lamp on low.

“You need to mean what you say, Casey. I’m a dominant man. I like to be dominant in the bedroom. If I’m in charge, I’ll be completely in charge. As for those toys in your store, I would never hurt you. Do you understand? I don’t spank or whip. I want to tell you what to do, be in control of the sex. Now Evan, he’d be happy to warm up your sweet bottom with a spanking. I want you to do exactly what I tell you to do. I want you completely at my mercy. Can you handle that?”

Casey nodded. The desire in Sin’s eyes felt hot on her skin. Her own heart was practically beating out of her chest. Somehow she’d known he would be this way with sex.

“I’ll control everything, honey. Outside the bedroom will be totally different, but in this bedroom, I’m king.” Sin suddenly grinned. “Are you ready for me?”

Casey licked her suddenly dry lips. Honey had dripped all the way down her thighs as she had listened. She had to convince him she wanted this. He seemed unsure whether to take her word. She pointed to her thighs, shiny with her own juices.

“Look what just your words did to me, Sin. I want it. I need you to take control.”
