Cover Reveal! HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT @BrazenBooks Bad boy hero/One Night Stand

At last I can reveal the cover to my upcoming Brazen - Hold Me Until Midnight - release date 9th June 2015!

Meet the Grayson brothers. Big, bad and gorgeous.
Jackson's book coming on 9th June 2015



Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…

Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.

Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?

The Sheikh & The Virgin ~ The Sheikh's Mistaken Bride #MySexySaturday



Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday! Today I'm sharing seven paragraphs from my sexy contemporary, The Sheikh's Mistaken Bride, which is the second novella in the box set Taken by the Sheikh.






He dipped his head and she loosened her grip on his shirt. His silky black hair brushed against her jaw as he trailed languid kisses along her throat. Even though he still cradled her head, she clutched his powerful biceps for support. His muscles were rock hard and the leashed power beneath her fingers caused her breast to constrict.

His breath was uneven as he gently nipped her sensitized flesh. The unexpected spark of pain intensified her pleasure and she shuddered in his arms. It was only when his hand slipped beneath her dress and caressed her stocking clad thigh that a sliver of sanity surfaced.

Gasping she pulled back as far as she could, considering his fingers were still tangled in her hair. His eyes were dark with passion and for a moment he looked nothing like the suave businessman she assumed he must be.

He looked wild and untamed, as though the charming philanderer was merely a flimsy fa├žade for the real man.

Instead of shocking her back to her senses, the crazy thought heightened the lust thundering through her blood. She almost forgot what she needed to say.

“Andre.”

“Don’t tell me to stop.” His voice was deep and rich, like dark chocolate and smoky whiskey. His fingers inched higher and toyed with her lacy suspender. “I must have you tonight, Sanura.”

Historical/Victorian/Sensual
Approx: 29,700 words
KG Publishing
Great price! 1.99!


Forget the horrors. Remember...me.

A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost in the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. Uncharacteristically halting his carriage, he is shocked to discover the thin, dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, a beautiful angel who captured his heart at a grand ball more than two years past. For Colborne, her circumstance is a mystery he feels honor bound to unravel.

Chastity and her siblings have been on the run for more than two years. Desperate for food and lodging money, she is forced to sell herself. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. She is given a choice, continue down the path of never-ending poverty or become the baron's mistress.

Though they are both determined the arrangement remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash's path. Can the baron and the mistress embrace true love?

Heat Level: Very Sensual 



Excerpt: Chastity could not believe she allowed the well-dressed gentleman to take her away in his carriage. They did not go far nor did they speak during the short journey. They both sat in a private room at The Pig and Whistle tavern. Her stomach rumbled. The man, who introduced himself as Ash and insisted she call him by that name, ordered beef stew, ale, and extra bread and cheese.
Fifteen shillings? The obscene amount still rattled about in her bewildered brain. With proper planning the money would keep her and her brother and sister comfortable for some weeks. What in God’s name did he wish to do with her? Or to her? What perverse act would she be subjected to? His intense stare made her uncomfortable. This Ash was too handsome by far. After removing his hat and gloves, he ran his hand through his black-as-midnight hair. His eyes were the color of a fine cognac and the gleam of lust that shone from them sent waves of heat through her body. Ash removed his cloak. The silver lining appeared to be the finest silk. His tall frame was perfectly proportioned and how well it filled out the excellently tailored evening wear. A smartly tied silver cravat about his neck completed the look and he did look every inch the rake. Chastity caught a whiff of expensive cologne. The scent of bergamot and lemon invaded her nostrils. Her stomach dipped precipitously. Dear heaven, I find him attractive? Not wise. Chastity’s gaze darted about the small room trying to find a quick escape route.
“What is your name, my sweet?”
His voice was deep, resonant, and cultured. A sensual baritone as rich as melted dark chocolate. Should she give her name? What would it matter? “Chastity.”
The man’s eyes widened briefly as he shifted in his seat, but his concentrated gaze did not waver. “Interesting choice of name for a prossie.”
Fury boiled quick and hot in her veins. “It’s my real name and I’m not a...a...prossie!”
The corner of his mouth quirked in amusement. “Of course not, even though you offered me a quick tup—for coin.”
Chastity’s cheeks burned in humiliation. Before she could answer, the door burst open and the barmaid carried in a tray of foodstuffs. The tantalizing aroma of beef, grilled onions, and fresh bread made her salivate. For a meal such as this and fifteen shillings, she would agree to anything. And she would bet this arrogant, handsome man knew it.
