Carnivore Club Excerpt

Here’s a bit of the opening of the book:

Dave and I were less than a month from the altar when I discovered his membership in a kinky-bondage group that met at the Carnivore Club every Tuesday. We were an ideal couple, everyone said so. We worked hard—we were saving to buy a comfortably sprawling house for the three children we hoped one day to have. Just last week, we received news our offer on a split-level three bedroom in the suburb of Rancho Mirales was accepted, my dress was ready for a final fitting, and all my dreams for a happily ever after were about to come true. I had bridal dreams every night, some scarier than others, but with the wedding so close a few jitters were bound to happen. We woke up a little earlier than usual that morning—I should say Dave woke me up. He’s a morning person when it comes to lovemaking and I opened my eyes to find him pressed against me, his hardness pushed into the hollow of my back, his hands caressing my abdomen, then venturing higher. I take mornings slowly, and not always cheerfully, but Dave’s hands rubbing slow circles on my breasts and his warm breath tickling the fine, soft hairs at the base of my neck were too enticing for me to be anything but eager, warm and willing. “Morning,” I said. “Morning,” Dave answered. “In the mood?”

Confessions from the Carnivore Club: Dave and Nancy’s Story

Hi everyone, here’s a blurb and an excerpt from my latest release. I hope you like it. It’s the first in a series and if you read the book you can have input as to which character the next to be released will be!

What happens when a nice, engaged woman finds out that her conservative, lawyer fiancé is a member of the notorious Carnivore Club? She recreates herself and arrives at the club in full bondage attire, leather and lace from head to foot. And aware of desires she never knew she had. Dave is going to have to move fast if he wants to stay on Nancy’s radar.

How Sexy is too Sexy

I recently was presented with the cover art for Confessions from the Carnivore Club: Dave and Nancy’s Story. I told my editor I hated it…Okay I was so wrong. It is unbelievably sexy and I think I was afraid it was too sexy. I have since learned form my wise author counterparts that ‘too sexy’ is not really an issue and I have fallen madly in love with my cover art, and am planning calendars.

Good Girls Can Write Naughty Words

Pagan though I may be, I was raised Catholic. 12 years of parochial school. This can really cast a net around a person’s self expression. I never swore much until I met my husband who swears so much he’s been an awful influence on me. But writing the same words is a totally different thing. It’s harder for some reason. I don’t know, maybe I’m afraid a ruler-wielding nun could be along at any moment, and if its in writing its harder to hide. Either way, I’m proud to say I’m learning Goddammit!  Or is it Goddess?
