Greetings! I hope everyone in the states had a wonderful Thanksgiving on Thursday! I’m still recovering from carb overload, but other than that, it was a warm, wonderful holiday with family. I’m very lucky.

I have been busy working nonstop on my next serial, out in March at the same time as the print version of the complete Because You Are Mine! When I’m With You features Ian and Francesca, and their love story is furthered, although the main hero and heroine are Lucien and a newcomer, Elise Martin. I noticed that Barnes and Noble is already listing Part One, so I guess I’m clear to show off the first of eight covers. I’m telling you…they are gorgeous, so rich and sensual. I haven’t got a website page up yet because I haven’t received official blurbs, but I’ll keep you updated as to when I can share more.

Oh…and by way of explanation, the heroine is a bad-girl, spirited heiress turned chef, thus the fork, along with the hallmark pearls. 🙂

Book Signings and Readings: Be sure to check out the two events listed just to the left of this blog: The Fifty Shades of Naughty book signing in the St. Louis area on December 1, with myself, Jaci Burton, Sylvia Day, Shayla Black, Shiloh Walker and more! I hear it’s already sold out, and promises to be a fun lady’s night out. The other event I have upcoming is at Lady Jane’s Salon in Naperville, Illinois, Dec 4 at 7 p.m. I’ll be reading from Exposed to You and will have several book giveaways! I hope I can meet some locals there. It’s being held at a chocolate shop, so it can’t be all bad, right? There will be another signing around Valentine’s Day here in Chicago with several local authors. I’ll put up more details as I get them.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a holiday weekend of family…and reading, of course!

Exposed to You is Here!
Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Exposed to You was a story of the heart for me.

Many of us have encountered first hand or witnessed a loved one battling cancer. For Joy Hightower, cancer has eclipsed her life. She watched her mother succumb to it over five painful years as a child. When she was diagnosed as an adult, it altered her completely. That–and the fact that she encountered the love of her life, Everett Hughes, on that fateful day, even if she didn’t recognize it herself at the time.

She’s healthy now, but an experience like that leaves not only scars on the spirit, but the seeds of growth and love in the heart.

It all sounds sort of dark, doesn’t it, for a romance? But Exposed to You is light and effervescent; the reason being Everett Hughes. Here is a force of nature, a man who sweeps a reluctant, but inevitably bowled over Joy off her feet. The lovely thing about Exposed to You is that Everett is one of the few men on the planet who could have broken through Joy’s gray barrier and brought her into the light.

And he does. Does he ever. He does it with raw, challenging sex. He does it with his confident, unguarded persona. He does it my loving Joy like no one else could.

Some early reviews for Exposed to You, out now!

With the wealth of erotic stories popping up everywhere, Kery dethrones them all with her latest — a real eye-opener. This well-written story is original, refreshing and hot enough to generate third-degree burns.
4 1/2 Stars – RT Book Reviews

5 Stars Book Lovers Inc. “A beautiful, memorable love story.”

5 Stars and a “Purest Delight”, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews. “This book has it all. A definite re-read for me!”

Heroes and Heartbreakers Blog “This was a romance in the true sense of the word”

Recommended Read from Dear Author: “Offers a well-blended romance with eroticism”

Rating: A- Romance Book Forum: “Exposed to You was fantastic. An amazing tale.”

Here’s a blurb and excerpt for Exposed to You!

“What would you do if the sexiest man in the world was bent on bringing you unbearable pleasure again and again? Joy Hightower wasn’t sure she could survive the experience…or live without it.”

It’s not often you’re hired to paint a body tattoo—and what a body—on a total stranger at a Hollywood film set. A reserved and careful art teacher, Joy would never forget it. In a rare fit of raw desire she gave herself completely, knowing she’d never see him again, or ever repeat such a shameless, naked impulse.

Little did she know, the man with whom she shared that lightning bolt of lust was star Everett Hughes. For Everett, women and sex came as easily as fame. But how could he hope to convince the guarded Joy that beneath the hard body and sexy façade of celebrity was a real man who wanted only one, real woman?

In the heat of an intoxicating affair, Everett endeavors to break down her barriers, gain her trust, and expose himself as the real deal. But can Joy do the same, and reveal to him the vulnerable woman who longs to be loved, wanted, and desired forever?

One Night of Passion series
Sunday, November 4th, 2012

Happy Sunday!

I hope you are all relaxing and are enjoying a cozy day of reading or hanging out with family and friends…or even better, both!

I’m still getting lots of messages about the One Night of Passion series with Exposed to You coming out on Tuesday. (Hurray!) To add to some of the confusion, the first novel in the series, Addicted to You, was written under the pen name Bethany Kane, while the two novellas and Exposed to You are written under Beth Kery. A couple important points:

–There is no break in the story tone, content or characters because the pen name changed. It was just a legal thing and the publisher was unable to change it, so don’t worry about story flow or anything.

–You do not need to read the books in order necessarily. Each stands alone, each about a separate hero and heroine and their love story. However, you might get the gist of the people and setting better if you read in order. Since there’s been some confusion on Shelfari, and therefore the Amazon Exposed to You page (which I can’t alter, btw…grrrr) I wanted to repost the series reading order, in case you are the orderly type. 🙂

Click on each title for a blurb and spicy excerpt!

1. Addicted to You (novel)
2. Bound to You (novella)
3. Captured by You (novella)
4. Exposed to You (novel, releasing November 6)
