How to Seduce a Billionaire - out now!


My latest billionaire book is out now! HOW TO SEDUCE A BILLIONAIRE is alternative take on the relationship between a rich, Alpha male and a virgin. I do hope you'll like it, and come to love my characters Jess and Ellis as much as I do. They're both fun, yet complex characters and they love sex. Even virgin Jess, who's been longing to meet a man who can make her fantasies into reality...

Here's the blurb...

Twenty-nine year old virgin Jess Lockhart has had to put her life on hold due to family commitments, but now it's time to break out and start enjoying sex and love. Trickily for her, years of artistic dreaming and fantasising about her first ever lover have given her impossibly high standards where men are concerned. She's not about to do the deed with just any old male that crosses her path. He has to be Mr Right, or at the very least Mr Sex, right for now, and a super special, superior example of his gender. Nothing less will do...

Ellis McKenna has all the credentials to be Jess's 'Dream Lover'. He's gorgeous, accomplished, capable and a fabulous lover, and he also just happens to be the scion of a family whose international assets can be counted in the billions. He's perfect Mr Right material, apart from one thing... the thing that makes him Mr Wrong for any woman wanting a relationship. Ellis is a grieving widower who's sworn never to love again. He wants sex, yes, and plenty of it, as a way to forget his pain... but his deeper heart is locked away by regret and sorrow.

Can this unusual couple put aside their issues and enjoy a simple seduction? Or will life's complexities put a spanner in the works?

Suite Seventeen is open again!

Suite 17

Yay! SUITE SEVENTEEN is published anew in the UK today with a brand new and very dramatic cover. This is one of my favourites of my own books. I love it because the heroine, Annie, is a woman in her forties, not a young slip of a thing, and the hero, Valentino, is very special and unusual, and in some ways not at all like the usual Alpha male dominant. You'll have to read the book to understand his most particular foibles… ;)

Here's the blurb:

When vibrant, forty-something widow Annie Conroy spies her new neighbours having kinky sex in their back garden, she decides it's time that she too woke up and smelt the erotic roses. And where better to begin her daring adventures than the luxurious Waverley Grange Country Hotel, and its hidden den of iniquity: the chintz-clad but wickedly pervy Suite Seventeen?

Under the stern but playful eye of exotic master Valentino, Annie quickly discovers the shocking hidden depths of her own sensuality, and surrenders herself body and soul to his outrageous games of power. But when the Waverley's entire future hangs in the balance, and Annie has the means to help save it, dare she gamble on going one step further... and giving her heart to the mysterious man who's come to control her?

Here are the buy links. 4th of December is the UK publication date for the new print version, but the print version isn't released in the US until 27th January. The digital versions are already available, but may have the old pink/purple cover.

Another new cover!


Here's the cover for my December Black Lace reprint, SUITE SEVENTEEN. I think this is a very clever cover as it shows a couple who could easily be Valentino and Annie, but also avoids contradicting the fact that Valentino has long black hair. He's clearly wearing it tied back in this shot, which he does do in the book when he's dressed for his job as a hotel manager. :)

But Valentino isn't your average suit and tie guy, and sometimes his wardrobe choices are, shall we say, quite exotic. But you'll have to read the book to discover what they are...

When vibrant, forty-something widow Annie Conroy spies her new neighbours having kinky sex in their back garden, she decides it's time that she too woke up and smelt the erotic roses. And where better to begin her daring adventures than the luxurious Waverley Grange Country Hotel, and its hidden den of iniquity: the chintz-clad but wickedly pervy Suite Seventeen?

Under the stern but playful eye of exotic master Valentino, Annie quickly discovers the shocking hidden depths of her own sensuality, and surrenders herself body and soul to his outrageous games of power. But when the Waverley's entire future hangs in the balance, and Annie has the means to help save it, dare she gamble on going one step further... and giving her heart to the mysterious man who's come to control her?

Wowsah!


Apparently this is the result of a BookBub promotion, funded by my publisher. I had no idea it was occurring, although I figured out they'd put IN TOO DEEP out at a special price for a while.

So, many thanks to all the readers who've snapped up my naughty librarian and professor fantasy! I do hope you enjoy it and perhaps decide to try more of my writing when you've read IN TOO DEEP.

If you're in America and you haven't yet sampled IN TOO DEEP, here's the Bookbub link to the special prices. :)

Happy Reading!

Masterful Secrets


The MASTERED boxed set releases tomorrow, but my companion piece novella, THEIR SECRET, is already available from a variety of outlets, if you want to get a taste of the Secret Pleasures world.

THEIR SECRET tells the sexy story of Maggie, whose close friend Sarah experiences a BDSM epiphany in HIS SECRET from the boxed set. Both these gals find themselves enthralled by handsome, charismatic and dominant men... and happily submit to them as masters. Yum yum!

Don't worry, you can read THEIR SECRET first, if you want to, as the stories can stand completely alone. You'll probably get most enjoyment from reading both, but it's not essential to read HIS SECRET first.

Here's the blurb of THEIR SECRET...

When Maggie Jenkins agrees to meet her online lover, the enigmatic “Mr. Jones”, at The Retreat, a luxury hotel with a risqué reputation, she knows she’s taking a wild and daring chance.

Mr. Jones is an irresistible temptation, an exciting alpha male who’s been tutoring Maggie in the mysteries of power exchange and BDSM sensuality. She’s half in love with her unknown master already, so despite the foolhardiness of submitting to a man she’s never met, Maggie reaches out to grasp pleasure, and her future, with both hands.

But fate throws a huge surprise in with the breathtaking bliss… and emotional complications Maggie could never have foreseen.

Here's an excerpt

And if you already just know you want to read about Maggie's daring adventure with Mr Jones, here are the buy links!
