Review for Field of Play!

Wow, two reviews in one day. How exciting. You Gotta Read sent an excellent review of Field of Play, Book 2 in the Ink and Kink series. I'm honored that earlier books in the series are getting noticed.

Great Review of Switch Master by Literary Nymphs!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a joyous and peaceful Christmas/Holiday Season and a Happy New Year. As it's a New Year, there are awesome books coming down the pike for 2014, books and stories I'll tell you all more about the closer they are to releasing. I will say that I recently signed a 5 book contract with Ellora's Cave, three that are part of the Sexcapades series that feature characters introduced in Hazard's Dare, Ellora's Cave Moderne, in small town Dare, Nevada, a place where the rich and famous and sometimes infamous can retreat to and not have to worry about candid cameras or discovery unless they want to be discovered.

Two of the books are for the Exotica line, Pleasure Trove and Road Gig! The first features an inside look at the porn industry from the prospective of a newly hired PA who unwittingly becomes the lead actor's fluffer! The latter, set to release late in 2014 or early 2015, depending on how fast I write, is a one night stand and a dream come true for a bartender working toward her doctorate.

In the meantime, as the subject heading indicates, my latest release, Switch Master, Ellora's Cave Taboo, the sixth book in the Ink and Kink series, received an excellent 4.5 Nymphs review from Literary Nymphs and I had to share.
