And why might July be so jolly, you might ask? I’m in the UK, so it can’t be the beautiful weather It’s not my birthday. That’s next month. I’m not going on holiday. That’s also next month. So what’s got me so happy.
Well, that would be two new releases! By some stroke of luck, I’ve ended up with two releases scheduled for July, in two days, no less. One’s been in the pipeline for some time, and one has happened pretty damn quickly.
Testing Tom is released on the 30th July, and is a pretty hardcore femdom erotic romance. I even shocked myself when I was writing this one! The storyline popped into my head, and everything else came from nowhere as I was writing. However, I did have good fun creating this story, and it seems people are already interested in it, which I’m hoping is a good sign. It tells the story of professional dominatrix Katrina, whose boyfriend left her for a vanilla chick. She was devastated, naturally, and has tried her best to get on with life without him. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on which way you look at it) he turns up on her doorstep several months later saying he was wrong and begging for forgiveness. Katrina’s been hurt, and Tom has lost her trust. She wants to forgive and take him back, but she wants proof that he really wants her and won’t hurt her again. So she sets a series of tasks for him. If he passes them all, she’ll take him back. But these are no ordinary tasks…
A Taste of Paris is released on the 31st July, and is the second book in my A Taste of… series. The first book was set in London, and the action has now moved onto France’s capital city. The series is about two young men, Ryan and Kristian, who are on their gap year, travelling for a year before they start University. As young men are wont to do, they’re having fun, being footloose and fancy free, exploring, drinking and having sex. Ryan’s grown into quite the chick magnet, and he ends up having encounters on the Eurostar and in The Louvre, for starters. You wouldn’t think it could get much better than that, but it does. This is fiction, after all! The story leads up until the end of the Paris trip, where the boys head for Rome. I’m writing A Taste of Rome now, and hope to have it to my editor in the next couple of weeks.
I guess you can see why I’m happy now, can’t you? Two very different, very fun books, which I very much hope you’ll enjoy. There’s more information below, as well as the Goodreads links. I’d love it if you could add the books to your shelves.
When Katrina’s ex, Tom, turns up on her doorstep, he’s literally the last person she was expecting to see. After dumping her and running off with a vanilla chick, Tom broke the Domme’s heart and left her seriously hurting. So when he returns, begging for another chance, Katrina is understandably very confused and protective of her bruised feelings. She finds it very difficult to believe that he’s turned his back on a vanilla lifestyle for good and wants to be with her, a professional dominatrix. Rather than letting her head or her heart figure out what to do, whether to forgive him, she decides to put Tom through a series of challenges that will prove his devotion to her—or not. Testing Tom is not something she’d ever expected she’d have to do, but to her, it’s the only way she can be sure whether he’s back for good.

Book two of the A Taste Of… series
Ryan Stonebridge and his friend Kristian Hurst are traveling on their year off before going to University.
Unfortunately, Kristian has been called back home due to a family emergency. Ryan continues on to Paris alone, hoping his friend will join him again soon.
In the meantime, Ryan’s lucky streak with women continues, and by the time Kristian makes it to Paris, Ryan’s bumper box of condoms is depleting rapidly. However, there are more than enough women to go around, and Kristian intends to have some sexy fun of his own, and when the boys get a chance to play with two sexy ladies at once, they certainly aren’t going to turn it down.
