Received fabulous news from Carina Press, my publisher. Forbidden Fantasies is going to print in a trade-size paperback anthology with stories from two other authors, Christine d’Abo and Delphine Dryden. All three are erotic romances with a bondage theme. I’m tickled pink to be included with these two fabulous writers. I’ve read and loved both these stories.
The book, The Theory of Attraction, will be available at stores like Barnes and Noble (both stores and online) and Amazon. It’s due out November 1st. (Edited! Currently it shows “Controlled by Desire, which was a working title only.)
I’m so excited I could scream. Might have screamed when I found out. Okay, really DID scream when I found out. Can’t wait to hold it in my hands!
Yay! I got my final cover today for my November 19th, 2012 Carina Press release FORBIDDEN DESIRES. I *love* this cover! It’s playful and sexy and is perfect for their relationship! And I love the series tag, Bondage & Breakfast, the name of the B&B that appears in each of my “Forbidden” stories.
What do you think of Marcus and Bella?
From my WIP, Forbidden Fires. I’m hoping to have this book turned in to my editor for consideration by the end of the month:
Her look and her body language was in no way submissive as she stared him right in the eye, breaking the flimsy tie between the two restraints still binding her wrists. She cupped a hand around the back of his neck and pulled him down to her level, dropping a searing hot kiss on his mouth, all tongue and teeth and pent up emotion. He was so stunned he stood there for a long moment before opening to her. As he fell into the kiss, he clasped her hips tightly, not caring if he left a mark there, the caveman inside him hoping he did.
She groaned, he groaned, and then she stepped back, breathing harshly. “Be careful. I need you safe, too.” She fisted his shirt, tugged for emphasis. “Need, Colin. Not just want. Need.”
Her hand dropped, and as she started to walk away, she made a brief stop in front of Gabe McConnell, standing on tiptoe to kiss his cheek. “You be careful too, Master Gabriel.”
“If you don’t marry her, you’re a fucking idiot,” McConnell said, staring bemusedly after her as she left the room. “And you won’t get a second chance, because I’ll make sure I give her what she wants and keep her so busy she won’t have time to think about you.”
Still stunned by Dee’s fervent declaration, Colin barked a laugh. “Yeah, you could try. But I’d kill you myself.”
“Good luck with that.”

About FORBIDDEN FANTASIES:
After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers’s sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can’t compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex’s lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed—and her secrets start coming between them.
State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth—except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She’s clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he’s shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B—Bondage and Breakfast—catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he’ll go.
