Three For All--First Chapter


Hell’s Delight 3


Copyright © 2013
Chapter One
Hell’s Delight, California

“This isn’t your average Delight Hardware crowd.”

Boy, did Lacey make an understatement. Of course, Hannah O’Loughlin had expected a colorful bunch of people at the Hardscrabble Ranch party. It was Halloween. But the extravagance presented here went beyond a few devil, Frankenstein, or Charlie Sheen masks.

A few men even were clad in My Little Pony costumes, complete with plumed tails swishing from their rumps. Muscular gladiators wearing leopard skin capes clanked by in chains. A life-sized Barbie had the dolls glued to every conceivable part of her body. A six-headed hydra spewed sequins from three of its mouths. One fellow was half man, half woman, depending from where you viewed him. The crew-cut, leather-clad lesbian bikers seemed almost homespun next to the razzle-dazzle that paraded in this barn.

“I feel so simple in my costume,” Hannah told Lacey. “And when I picked it out at the store it felt so daring.” We’re not in Montana anymore.

Lacey clutched Hannah’s arm. She seemed to genuinely fear for Hannah’s comfort level now. “Oh, I hope you don’t feel out of place. Believe me, these folks are just cutting loose. They’re normally just everyday people. See that gal dressed like the Statue of Liberty? She’s really Miss Teen Buckeye County. And that guy wearing nothing but a giant book—see, he’s got binoculars for eyes?—well, he’s just the Hell’s Delight bookstore owner.”

Awesomesauce Cover Reveal

I am SO excited to reveal the cover for The Good Switch, due out December 20.

I modeled the heroine Natasha after Angie Harmon--you can totally tell!  It's amazing how close Les gets to the original.
 Natasha Woolf’s delinquent teen son is giving her nothing but headaches.  Enter Ari Braverman, politician turned powerful food critic, and she welcomes the help.   Ari is a charismatic, cultured silver fox in an expensive business suit, and Natasha wants to restore order to the chaos that has become of her life.  Ari’s brand of domination equals security and safety for her. 
After a nasty breakup in Washington, DC, Ari hesitates to accept a new submissive.  But he discovers the spitfire restaurant owner has a feisty side that refuses to offer total surrender, and he’s surprised that her rebel play turns him on.
When his old girlfriend Kelly pops up begging to reconcile, Ari sends the ex-sub packing.  Kelly worms her way into the graces of politicos supporting his Congressional bid, with deadly intentions for the sub who has taken her place.  Natasha must fight tooth and nail to prove she is…THE GOOD SWITCH.

Her Master's Choice on Preorder at Siren!

Her Master's Choice has gone on preorder at Siren!  This is my very first MF-BDSM in years.  It was exhilarating writing about "only" two people for the first time.  I was able to get a lot more in depth with just the two of them, and that was fun, delving into their deep-seated emotions.

I adore writing about people who find it difficult to love again, or to admit love.  I adore the dark, edgy heroes who have been living the dissipated life, and clean up their act out of love for the heroine.  She always elevates him above his darkness and self-pity. 

[Siren Everlasting Classic: Erotic Consensual BDSM Romance, public exhibition, spanking, paddling, flogging, forced-seduction role play, sex toys, HEA]

When Shannon Bloomfield hears a rumor that an influential, anonymous food critic is visiting her restaurant, she has no idea it’s the exotic, erotic bad boy Tate Gooding who holds her fate in his culinary hands.  Tate, burned out on the club circuit life and traveling around the States for his guidebook company, wants a deeper, more meaningful relationship with the three-star chef. 
Tate instructs Shannon in a thrilling new realm of private—and public—play, pushing her limits with every new scene.  Shannon discovers that her inner “Force-Me Queen” is an expert tease, skilled at keeping Tate on the edge.
But a creepy stalker has photos and threatens to expose Tate’s cover and their back alley scenes.  Tracking down the culprit brings the couple closer than ever in their power plays, and Shannon learns that breaking out of her comfort zone is an arousing adventure when it’s Her Master’s Choice.

New Banner Reveal!

Jan Bowles has generously made me the MOST amazing, artistic, and creative banner in the history of the entire world:

I love how she put she whip in the gal's hand and the cuffs in the dude's hand.  She is a true Master at more than graphic arts and you simply must check out her MF-BDSM novels written for Siren!  She has been mentoring me as I phase into the uncharted territory of MF-BDSM with my Her Master's Choice, due out November 25.

Sirenistas in Vegas

So last weekend I met up with some fellow Siren writers in Las Vegas.  We stayed at the South Point which is south of the airport, sort of a self-contained little world with a horse arena and some romance writers who wished the rodeo was THIS WEEK.

From L to R, here are Siobhan Muir, Susan Hayes, Laurie Roma, Erika Reed, Marla Monroe, Yours Truly, and Reggie Alexander!  Oh, and looks like Marla's got Bondage Bunny. 

I tried writing in my room and got about 500 words before I realized it'd be much more fun to read Corinne Davies' latest Sanctuary book down by the pool, so that didn't get too far.  I already miss everyone!  We vowed to make it an annual deal, except next time...WHEN THE INDIAN RODEO IS THERE!

Here's a real good shot of Laurie Roma and Susan Hayes.  Till next year!
