New Covers for Bound Again Series

One of the great things about self-publishing, is that authors can now try new things. And with the case of Bound to Surrender and Bound to Submit, I decided to go with new covers. I loved the old ones, with the sexy bound women, but I wondered…how about some man-chest? 🙂

What the heck. I can do that. I can switch up the covers and see what readers think. Who doesn’t like some sexy man-chest? So today I’m revealing the new covers for Bound to Submit (Bound Again book #1) and Bound to Surrender (Bound Again book #2) The change should be live in the next few days, but the books are, of course, available now.

Mason’s dark good looks and dominating personality stirred up Kelly’s forbidden fantasies, frightening her so much that she broke up with him. When she agrees to help out at the community haunted house, she never expects to be tied to a bed, playing damsel in distress to Mason’s masked, whip-wielding villain.

Mason knows Kelly is fighting her sexual needs and he hopes that a few hours of playing out her fantasies with him will prove it to her. Bound and under his control, she can’t run away from him this time.

Love is nothing but an illusion. Heiress Gabriella Winslow learned that lesson years ago when her magician boyfriend abandoned her, sick and alone, hundreds of miles from home. In the years that followed, she’s tried to forget him and the erotic bondage games they used to play. But the life she’s made for herself since then still leaves her restless and yearning for something more.

Now a successful illusionist, Alexander Black has returned to settle an old score. And to seduce Gabriella. With a blindfold and handcuffs and blood red roses, he entices his former lover and magician’s assistant back to his Las Vegas penthouse. If all goes according to plan, she’ll surrender to him before she discovers everything isn’t as it seems.

So what do you think?

Looking Back and Looking Ahead

We’re only days away from saying good-bye to 2014 and welcoming in 2015. I always look back at this time of year and see what I’ve accomplished and look ahead to what I hope to find in a brand new year.

2014 was not as productive for me writing-wise as I would have liked. Still, I released a novel and short story in my Her Royal Romance series, a beach romance novella, and re-released two erotic romances to which I got the rights back, with new covers and in one case, expanded the story to twice its original length. Since this is 69 Shades of Smut after all, I thought I’d recap the two sexy bondage stories for you and let you know what I have planned smut-wise for 2015.

Bound to Submit was originally a Halloween Quickie, but when I got the rights back I took the story past the haunted house and gave this couple more time to find their happy ending.

Bound to Surrender has always been one of my favorite erotic romances. A sexy illusionist with talented hands and a bit of a mystery, I kept this story as it was originally written.

Since they are both bondage stories and both reunion stories, I opted to go with similar covers and titles. I have the rights back on two other erotic romances, one a short fantasy and the other a novel-length futuristic (yes, I had fun trying out a few different genres) and hope to re-release them in 2105. Just part of that looking ahead to the coming year. If you’d like to be notified of my new releases and other news.contests/freebies in the coming year, you can sign up for my mailing list too.

Here’s hoping 2015 brings love and joy and more sexy reading for all our 69 Shades readers!

Sexy Halloween Read

Just in time for Halloween, Bound to Submit is the perfect sexy read if you like bondage, reunited lovers, and a fun Halloween haunted house setting. I had a lot of fun writing this story. It wasn’t the first book I ever wrote, but it was the first to get published many years ago, Now it has new life and an expanded story line.

BoundToSubmit_1280x800

Excerpt:

“All you have to do is scream your head off whenever the door is opened,” Lisa was saying.

“What?”

Lisa sighed. “Pay attention, hon. I have to get everyone else set up too.”

“Sorry.”

“We’ll be taking groups through the house one at a time. They’ll have to wait their turn in the spider web room. Cool, huh? Dark and spooky, ya know?” Lisa glanced at Kelly over her shoulder with a big grin.

“Getting them into the mood.” Kelly was already spooked.

“Anticipation can be pretty powerful, especially in the right atmosphere.”

Kelly rubbed her wrist again.

“When it’s really busy, you could be on every fifteen minutes or so,” Lisa went on. Kelly tried to pay attention while nerves buzzed through her body. “I’m going to be bringing each group through the house, telling scary stories to lead up to each room. The doors will be closed until I open them. So when your door is opened, you need to scream for help at the top of your lungs and the villain will charge the door with his weapon and the group will scream and I’ll close the door again. Nothing to it. You just have to be ready when I slam the door open.”

“Got it.” Tied to a bed. Straining at the ropes. Begging for help. Why was she getting all excited at the thought? Kelly knew it was wrong. She should be frightened. She was frightened…by how aroused she was at the thought. By the way her nipples were prickling. The way her skin tingled. Her panties were already damp.

She should be ashamed of herself.

They passed by the first door at the top of the stairs. Looking down the long, straight hall with all the doorways, Kelly could believe the bordello stories. Back in the day, had any one of the women found herself tied to a bed behind closed doors? Had she been frightened? Or had she shivered with anticipation? Or even delight? Might she have longed for the feeling of being restrained? Might she have lain there helpless, looking up into the eyes of a tall, muscular man who had her at his mercy…and felt a sense of rightness?

No. There was nothing right about that.

“Matt Dunn and Kyle Parker are ghosts in the first room,” Lisa said. “You’ve got the second room on the left.”

“Wait, Lisa,” Kelly called out. “Who’s going to be the villain?”

Who was she going be shut up with? Tied up with? At the mercy of?

But Lisa was already pushing the door open. Faded red flocked wallpaper covered the walls of the large bedroom. A four-poster bed sat in the middle of the room, covered with a black bedspread. The light from the cut glass chandelier threw long shadows across the worn wood floor.

“Hey, you look great!” But Lisa wasn’t talking to Kelly, she was addressing someone already in the room.

Kelly froze in the doorway as a tall masked man, dressed from head to toe in black, stepped away from the bed. A black hood covered his entire head except for holes for his eyes and mouth. The sleeveless black T-shirt clung to his sculpted chest and his muscled arms were tanned. Black pants and shoes completed the intimidating outfit.

Her heart pounded so loudly she couldn’t hear what Lisa was saying. “Dress? Did you say something about a dress?”

Lisa rolled her eyes. “You can change behind that screen in the corner. The dress is on the chair behind it.”

No way was she going to be taking off her clothes in the same room with…who was this masked man? This tall masked man dressed like a…a…

Kelly whipped around to look at Lisa. Wasn’t she supposed to be her friend? “What’s wrong with what I have on?”

“Jeans and sweatshirt don’t project the same damsel in distress image as a dress,” Lisa said, already walking toward the hallway, ignoring Kelly’s pleading look. “Gotta run. You and Mason can work everything else out.” She glanced at her watch. “You’ve got less than half an hour before the first group will be coming through. Be ready.” Then she was out the door, shutting it behind her.

How could Lisa have done this to her? She knew Kelly had broken things off with Mason. Of course, Kelly had never confessed why, but her best friend had to have known it would be awkward for the two of them to be shut up in this room together.

The slam of the door echoed in the silence. Kelly turned around slowly and looked up into the deep, dark eyes staring at her out of the mask. Of course, it was Mason. Hadn’t she known it the moment she stepped into the room? Her hands shook as she clasped them together in front of her.

Oh God, it was Mason.

He slid the mask off his head with one large hand. His eyes were what had first attracted her to him, and they were still like melted dark chocolate. His head was shaved as always, but there was a shadowy hint of hair on his head and an even darker trace along his jaw. The diamond stud in his ear twinkled beneath the light from the chandelier.

He looked so good. There was a part of her that still wanted to throw her arms around him. To feel his arms around her. His lips on her. His hands on her.

But he’d wanted more than she could give him.

“Hello, Kelly.” His deep voice was a touch amused.

Indignation made her cheeks burn. She didn’t find anything amusing in the situation. He was the one man whose mere touch frightened her, because it made her desire things she shouldn’t want. Made her crave things she didn’t understand. Just a glance from him made her tremble and made her want to drop to her knees before him.

Right now the thought of being tied to that bed with Mason standing over her froze her to the spot at the end of the bed. She avoided his eye, but in doing so focused her attention on the bed, the black velvet bedspread, and the tall thick bedposts at each corner. Would he stretch her tight when he tied her to the bedposts? Or would he give her wiggle room? And the thought of her body squirming beneath Mason’s heated gaze made her shiver.

But was it from fear? Or excitement?

Or even anticipation?

“No words for me, Kelly?”

She had to clear her throat before she could speak. “I don’t know what I’m doing here. I don’t know what we’re doing here.”

He took a couple of steps toward her and her heart beat faster. “We’re helping stock the food bank and having a little fun.”

She let out a short bark of a laugh. “Fun? You call this fun?”

“Sure. What do you call acting out in a haunted house?” He took another step toward her and it took all her concentration not to back away from him. She wasn’t going to let him intimidate her.

But if she were to be honest with herself, she’d admit he didn’t intimidate her in the least. He excited her. Tempted her. And wasn’t that the real problem?

Have a great Halloween and pick up Bound to Submit if you want a hot, sexy read to get you in the mood!

Coming Soon! Bound to Submit

Halloween is fast approaching, the perfect time to re-release what had once been a Halloween Quickie. I always thought I would like to do more with this couple and after I got the rights back to the short novella, I revised and expanded it, doubling the length. And since it had originally been part of a special call, it didn’t get it’s own cover the first time around. It has one now! I love this cover by the talented Lacey Savage.

BoundToSubmit_1280x800Blurb:

Mason’s dark good looks and dominating personality stirred up Kelly’s forbidden fantasies, frightening her so much that she broke up with him.  When she agrees to help out at the community haunted house, she never expects to be tied to a bed, playing damsel in distress to Mason’s masked, whip-wielding villain.

Mason knows Kelly is fighting her sexual needs and he hopes that a few hours of playing out her fantasies with him will prove it to her. Bound and under his control, she can’t run away from him this time.  

Previously published as Nothing to Fear, but has been significantly revised and expanded.

Excerpt:

His hot gaze ran over her and her breath caught in her throat. Oh God, it was like all her sick little fantasies coming true. Of course, she knew this wasn’t real. Mason wasn’t going to ravage her body while she was tied to that bed, but her panties got wet just thinking about it. Her breath came in short pants, her mouth suddenly dry.

She ran her tongue over her lips to moisten them, but when she noticed Mason watching her, she clamped them together. Oh, she was so in over her head here. How had she let this happen?

“I’ve missed you, baby.” His words were soft and sincere. Tears prickled her eyes. She’d never seen Mason look so vulnerable. He’d always been the strong, confident…Dom?

Yeah, she’d done the research. Read the books and surfed the ‘net after their breakup. Those BDSM things might have pushed his buttons, but that stuff wasn’t for her. Couldn’t be for her.

“I’ve missed you too,” she admitted, because no matter what, he deserved that much of the truth. “But that doesn’t mean anything about this is right.”

“We’re just playing.” He was still holding onto her upper arm and led her over to the bed. “We’re acting out in a haunted house. It doesn’t have to be any more than that if you don’t want it to be.”

She backed up against the high mattress. “I don’t know.” She didn’t want to admit that the BDSM stuff had pushed her buttons too.

“It’s too late to change your mind now.” He ran the rope along her bare arm and she shivered. “But then you like to run away from things that make you uncomfortable, don’t you.”

She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. “Mason, please. I don’t want to get into this now.”

“You’re right, we don’t have time. Get on the bed.”

If all goes well, Bound to Submit should be available early next week. You can check with your favorite ebook vendor, or sign up for my mailing list to be notified when it’s released. I love being able to give some of my older stories new life!
