I'm in the process of completing two BDSM-themed, contemporary romances this week. My goal is to have them both completed by Thanksgiving so I can take a much needed break and enjoy the holiday season.
I'm currently working with my editor to get Master of the Inn nice and pretty and ready to release on January 4, 2013. Eeks! That date is just around the corner. I can't wait to share Logan with you.
The Pleasure Inn series kicks off in 2013 with Logan and Elyse's story. The reader will be introduced to the couple and the story behind the inn. Every few months, a new novella will release centering on a unique couple staying at the inn. Logan and Elyse will be featured in each novella. The reader can keep up with the progress of their relationship while indulging in a steamy read about how the guests indulge in making their fantasy a reality at Pleasure Inn.
Pleasure Inn… Where all of your fantasies become reality.
Executive chef Elyse Clapton has had it with city life. She’s spent the last few years building her cheating boyfriend’s trendy New York City restaurant into a success. When their relationship ends, so does her desire to be in his kitchen. She flees to a quaint inn she remembers visiting as a child. She gets more than she bargains for when she meets the sexy, reclusive inn keeper.
Handyman Logan Cole inherited Pleasure Inn against his wishes. Ever since he got caught up in a scandal involving another man’s wife, he keeps to himself – finding solace in a bottle. He didn’t realize how lonely he’d become until Elyse shows up on his porch. He’s instantly drawn to her and convinces her to stay at the Bed and Breakfast.
Elyse comes to town looking for a getaway. She never expects to fall for Logan. It doesn’t take her long to believe the inn’s motto. Logan’s dominance in the bedroom makes all of her fantasies a reality.
Book One in the Pleasure Inn Series
I also plan to send Surrender to Me to my Beachwalk Press editor in the next week. If you've read Make Me Stay, you remember Martin. He's the Dom that Gracie ran off to NYC to find and help train her to be the perfect submissive for Cade, the hero she was destined to be with. When I finished Make Me Stay, I realized that while Martin was happy to accommodate Gracie, he didn't get his HEA. Martin spoke loudly in my head, so I listened. Who would listen to a crop wielding, handcuff holding Alpha male?
Here's a little unedited sample of what we can expect when Martin falls for his not so submissive attorney...
“I’m on time.” Arianna shot Martin that sexy, little ‘I win’ smirk.
“You actually have thirty seconds to spare. I’m impressed.” He took her hand when she reached the bottom of the stairs. “A little disappointed that I won’t be able to make good on my threat to spank you, but impressed.”
“I told you I’ll never kneel for you.” She slipped her bottom lip between her teeth.
“Hmm.” He ran his lips along her jaw, stopping just at the corner of her mouth. “Kneeling may be overrated.”

Can the sub teach the Dom to play?
Natural submissive Gracie Miller thought she had found her other half in Cade Jameson. Not only did he help her through a difficult time in her life, in the bedroom he brought her more pleasure than she could have ever imagined. They seemed perfect for each other.
Cade knew what he wanted in the bedroom. Gracie brought out his domineering side and ignited his passion. But he feared he was too dominant for this beautiful, naïve girl, who was so young and impressionable, so he ended their relationship.
Two and a half years later, Gracie returns to town a new woman. She had moved to the city and found a "Master" who showed her what she was truly capable of. Now she's back and wants to show Cade exactly what kind of submissive she could be for him.
But after hearing all that she's experienced, Cade now wonders if he's dominant enough to satisfy her. Can he be the man Gracie needs him to be?
