Every couple of days from now until then I will be doing a spotlight on my blog for each of the attending authors, I can't wait to meet them all personally on the day!
Today's featured author is...
Short bio: UK based, bestselling Indie author of contemporary romance … otherwise known as elegantly filthy erotica. Shoeaholic. Introvert. Prude. Teetotaler. Compulsive Liar ... well, not about the shoes. I never lie about shoes!!
UK bestselling author of the Passion Noire, Rouge Passion and Orion the Hunter series. Not your average romance novelist ... but then, who wants to be average?
I love reading - almost as much as I love writing.. I relish the sheer escapism of losing myself in a book that grips me and takes me on an emotional roller coaster. I regularly mourn the passing of a good book - am I the only one who turns the pages more slowly when you don’t want a great book to end?
I love a good steamy romance and I adore sexy alpha males. I also have more than a passing interest in BDSM (nod, nod … wink, wink). One day, I put pen to paper (well fingers to keyboard, actually) and the Orion the Hunter series was born. Little did I know that, at that moment, I was sewing the seeds of change. For, just a few months later, as a somewhat bewildered Amazon Kindle bestselling Indie author, I quit my career as an education professional to write full time. Scary stuff, I think you’ll agree.
2013 was a very difficult year for me for personal reasons. It taught me how fragile life is and how important it is to grab it with both hands and ride the hell out of it. So in 2014, I began my comeback with the Amazon #1 Bestselling Erotica/Romantic Erotica bestselling series, Rouge Passion. I also met many of my favourite authors and so many lovely readers at my first signing event in Edinburgh. I flipped Stu Reardon’s kilt! Happy days …
I have big plans for 2015. I’m signing at several more author events around the UK and I’m pouring my heart and soul into what I consider my best series yet - by far! Cue Passion Noire, a three part series revolving around La Veuve Noire - a sexual therapist by day and a desirable Domme by night. But fear not, sexy alphas are still on the menu. I mean … this is me!
The Hunter (Orion the Hunter #1)
Perfect for fans of Fifty Shades or the Crossfire Series, J. D. Chase' new serial novel begins with this sizzling first episode. The series is guaranteed to get hotter and hotter.
Gorgeous Interior Designer, Issy Prince, loves her life in Manhattan with her best friend, Angel. She loves to watch Angel's boyfriend's band and is used to getting the attention of any man she wants. She has no plans to settle down - ever - but has regular hot one night stands. Life is good.
Former Dominant, Lucas Hunter, has made millions in the construction sector. The handsome, anti-social, alpha male has been celibate for several years, preferring instead to hit the gym and maintain his awesome physique. When he meets Issy, sparks fly.
What happens when two strong minded individuals find that they can't get each other out of their minds? Neither wants to get involved in a relationship but neither can walk away. Dare they embark on a passionate journey into the unknown?
Also included is an extract from The Hunted - Part Two of the Orion the Hunter Series. Part Two will be available at the end of December 2012.
The Player (Rouge Passion #1)
Feisty redhead, Isla Hamilton, is the ambitious Assistant General Manager of a luxury Kensington hotel. When the hotel is sold, she is desperate to become the new General Manager. There’s just one problem standing in her way, and it’s standing over six feet tall - the king of arrogance and inappropriateness, Xander Rhodes. Her mind hates his obnoxious, godlike presence but, no matter how hard she fights it, her body reacts to his distinct style of directness, particularly his dirty mouth, and maintaining a professional distance soon becomes difficult.
Events from the recent past haunt her, forcing her to swear that she’ll never give another man a chance to hurt her. But Xander isn’t interested in commitment, he’s too busy battling his own demons that are shrouded in secrecy so he can’t hurt her, right? When he warns her that spending the night with him would only make her crave him like an addiction, she is sceptical and determined to prove him wrong. If anything, she’d make him crave her.
But will she be ready to handle the fallout if she succeeds?
Warning: adult content - dirty talk and hot sex may offend the prudish!
Vouloir (Passion Noire #1)
Vouloir: French meaning ‘to want’.
Most of us want what we can’t have . . .
Former Commando, Jones, is used to getting what he wants and he never has to beg. Six feet four. Blond. Eyes of glacial blue. Ripped. Inked. Unmistakably alpha. Dangerously dominant.
Sexual therapist, La Veuve Noire, always gets what she wants but it’s seldom for her own gain. Her motivation is the wellbeing of her clients. She’s the best in the business, having learnt that keeping everyone in her life at an emotional distance is the key to success.
That is, until The Kid tumbles into her life and scrambles into her heart. The mysterious, damaged nineteen year old turns her ordered life upside down. She’s known as the Patron Saint of Waifs and Strays for a reason: she gives them hope, and with hope comes healing. She’s determined to turn The Kid’s dark past into a bright future.
The club, Vouloir, is her escape. There she can indulge her own and others’ particular needs. Complications arise in the form of a new member who reminds her of a past she strives to forget. A former Royal Marine. Blond hair. Blue eyes. Unmistakably dominant. Definitely dangerous. He’s locked and loaded. His sights are set: on her.
Some of us want what we shouldn’t have . . .
This three part series runs post/parallel to Rouge Passion but can be read as a standalone series.
