This fall, fall in love . . .
Anyone who knows me is probably all too aware that I’m bursting with excitement about my upcoming serial novel, THE AFFAIR. This is a supersexy, angsty, sensually indulgent and extremely romantic love story between a brooding billionaire and a hospice nurse. Sound familiar? Well it’s not. As a trained clinical psychologist, I take characterization very seriously, and Montand and Emma are two of my favorite characters to date.
Although at first blush, Montand may seem like the type of guy every man would want to be and every woman would want to have—sexy, handsome, the owner of two renowned car companies—he’s far from being typical. In fact, his life has been seemingly cursed by death and tragedy over and over again. He’s learned not to get close because life has taught him he’ll lose what he loves.
Enter Emma Shore, unconventional, beautiful, and completely uncontrived hospice nurse. Emma knows more about death than most. She has a lot to teach the shut-off Montand about coming back to the world of the living. He has a lot to teach her about taking a risk and indulging the senses.
But it’s what they teach each other about trust and love that makes this story so special.
Looking for that next emotional, sexy story that will sweep you off your feet? Look for THE AFFAIR, an eight week long reading experience with a new installment available every Tuesday beginning September 16th in both the United States and the United Kindgom.

Some things are meant to be savored.
THE AFFAIR is an angsty and super sexy love story that’s an eight week long reading experience, beginning with the first ‘episode’ on September 16th, 2014. After that, travel with unconventional hospice nurse Emma Shore in real time as she steps across the threshold into a world of luxury, sensual pleasure and forbidden passion. Knowing he’d break her heart if she lingered too long, Emma told Montand their affair would last 8 weeks, and then she’d walk away. But is 8 weeks too much time in which to lose her heart?
Readers of the Because You Are Mine serials can expect more romance, secrets and steamy sex, in addition to heftier episodes. THE AFFAIR is the size of two novels. Most importantly, Emma’s and Montand’s love story is rife with deep, compelling emotion. These two characters will stick with you for a long time.
The covers for THE AFFAIR are each delightful and sensual works of art.
THE AFFAIR is now available for preorder!

The fourth book in the BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE series, SINCE I SAW YOU is out tomorrow–5/6/14! I’m so excited about it. Kam and Lin are two of my favorite characters, even though an author shouldn’t play favorites with her ‘children’ I know. :)
There has been some amazing early reviews out for Since, and I’d like to share them here:
“Beth Kery’s Since I Saw You is the whole package. The characters, the writing, the romance, the pacing, the emotion—I wish every book was like this.” Heroes and Heartbreakers
“Another Beth Kery masterpiece.” Scandalicious Book Reviews
“Intense and hot.” Fiction Vixen Book Reviews
“The pages burn with the sheer force of the raw emotion and sexuality exuded by both protagonists. You will really enjoy.” The Good, The Bad, and the Unread.
“In a subgenre that often misses the mark in some element of writing, storytelling, worldbuilding or character development, Kery does a fine job pulling them all together. An intensely sexual love story.” Kirkus Reviews
“Readers will be floored by the explosive sexual connection between the main characters in this Because You Are Mine novel. This story is hot enough to melt icebergs in the middle of Antarctica, and fans of true love will be convinced that it really does exist. The dialogue, emotional connection and even the settings are all so real, which makes this a truly incredible read. Kery’s best work to date!” An RT Book Reviews magazine Top Pick

I was excited to see some great pre-release reviews for SINCE I SAW YOU, Book 4 in the Because You Are Mine series, out May 6! I like to describe this one as a super sexy, sophisticated and fun Beauty and the Beast setup between two very special people who may seem mismatched, but are actually perfectly suited to each other.
Here is a tidbit from Kirkus Reviews, but check out the full review here!
“Best-selling erotic-romance author Kery pens a red-hot tale of the road to love complicated by scorching, graphically described sex, including light BDSM. With two enigmatic main characters who seem to be completely mismatched but come to see themselves as perfect for each other in every way, Kery weaves together a story that nicely balances the romance and the erotica and throws in some satisfying emotional details concerning family and relationship back story. In a subgenre that often misses the mark in some element of writing, storytelling, worldbuilding or character development, Kery does a fine job pulling them all together.
An intensely sexual love story.”
Since I Saw You was also an RT Book Reviews Top Pick!
“Readers will be floored by the explosive sexual connection between the main characters in this Because You Are Mine novel. This story is hot enough to melt icebergs in the middle of Antarctica, and fans of true love will be convinced that it really does exist. The dialogue, emotional connection and even the settings are all so real, which makes this a truly incredible read. Kery’s best work to date!”

I’m excited to show you the cover for ONLY FOR YOU, Book 3 in the One Night of Passion series, available December 3. You all remember Seth Hightower, Joy’s big, intimidating, simmering uncle (they are close enough in age that they are more like brother and sister). As you may recall, Seth avoids self-centered actresses and warns Joy that actors are “another species”. This is his story–and how he ends up falling hard despite his personal rules with Hollywood’s sweetheart, Gia Harris.
ONLY FOR YOU: Publication Date: December 2, 2014
Some passions are too hot to disguise…
Former Army intelligence officer Seth Hightower may work with the Hollywood elite as a special effects makeup artist, but he’s learned not to trust the rich and famous with anything more than a good time. Only one woman ever tempted him to break his rules about dating actresses—and she left him with the memory of a single night and a lifetime of what-ifs.
Hollywood “It” girl Gia Harris is used to being in the spotlight. But after she witnesses something that puts her life in danger, she needs to avoid prying eyes. Seth’s special skills make him the perfect person to keep her famous face out of the news, but their history makes him the last person she wants to be alone with. He’s far too tempting—and now, far too close…
As Seth conceals Gia from those who would do her harm, they can’t ignore the blistering attraction between them. And when they give in to their cravings, they reveal more about themselves than either of them has ever laid bare before…
Interested in the One Night Passion series so far? It is:
Addicted to You (Novel #1)
Bound to You (e-novella)
Captured by You (e-novella)
Exposed to You (Novel #2)
Only for You (Novel #3, available Dec. 2, 2014)
All other novels and novellas are available now.

Excerpt: SINCE I SAW YOU, Book 4 in the Because You Are Mine series, available May 6, 2014.
When enigmatic billionaire Ian Noble sets Lin the task of ‘taming’ his brilliant, yet half-savage brother Kam Reardon, she eagerly accepts. She’s more than curious about the solitary genius and everything she’s heard about him. During their electric first meeting, her fascination increases a hundredfold. Kam practically oozes raw sex appeal. Lin is interested…very interested. But does her intense attraction and willingness to go places with him she’s never gone before in the bedroom really have to do with Kam? Or is her carefully hidden desire to blame for a man she knows she can never have?
An elusive outsider, Kam avoids intimacy, yet never shies away from satisfying his erotic appetites. But there’s something different about Lin—a reserve he’s anxious to break. A woman he’s eager to take his time with…and possess completely. A sophisticated beauty like her would never want him anywhere but in bed, but he finds himself unable to resist her.
Immediately Lin’s smooth façade is undone by Kam’s overwhelming masculinity and by his irresistible erotic demands—a lesson in subjugation that leaves Lin confused, reeling, and open to things she never thought possible. Now, as the unpredictable nights between them grow darker, Lin and Kam are certain of only thing: they’re made for each other.
“I get it,” Lin said, recovering from his harsh bark of laughter and turning away from him dismissively. “It’s easy to stand on the sidelines and jeer.”
Irritation spiked through him. A movement broke his focus on Lin, briefly fracturing his attention. Ian sat behind his desk, a very untypical expression of rapt bemusement on his face as he watched the two of them.
“If you don’t think I’m going to be a source of amusement in all these meetings you have planned, why are you backing out of them?” Kam demanded of Lin.
“I don’t appreciate your disdain for the proceedings,” she said, picking at an invisible piece of lint on her dress and sweeping it away. “You’re determined to ruin the whole thing without even really trying. It’s an insult to all the preparation I’ve done.”
“At least I was willing to show up tonight. More than you can say.”
“So you actually want me there?” she demanded, giving him a sideways glare.
“I figure you’re the best bet I have.”
Her nostrils flared slightly as they faced off in the silence.
“I couldn’t have said it better myself,” Ian said. Both Lin and he turned to look at him blankly.
“Yeah. I’m still here,” Ian said drolly under his breath.
“Fine,” Lin said abruptly, as if Ian had never interrupted. Kam blinked when she practically hurled herself out of the chair, her actions rapid yet graceful, controlled but somehow aggressive as well. Ian seemed as cowed into silence as Kam was as they both watched her grab a pad of paper and pen off Ian’s desk and lean over to write in a slashing scrawl. Kam saw that the sexy shirtdress was slightly longer in the back than the front, but still gave him a tantalizing view of slender calves. In her bent-over position, he could see the outline of her shapely, taut ass through draping fabric. It twitched ever so slightly as she wrote.
She ripped the piece of paper off the pad with a vicious swipe.
“Meet me at this address at noon. Bring your credit card,” she said, handing Kam the slip of paper. She turned to Ian and flipped her hand open in a succinct demand. “If you’re finished with the Tyake numbers, I need them back.”
Ian handed her the file wordlessly. They both watched Lin sweep out of the office.
“I’ve never seen her this way,” Ian said a moment after his office door shut briskly behind Lin. He stared at Kam looking a little sideswiped. “What in the world did you say to her when you two met?”
“Nothing,” Kam said laconically as he stood. He noticed Ian’s skeptical glance. “I just told her I thought she took her job way too seriously.”
“You told Lin Soong that?”
“Yeah,” Kam muttered under his breath as he walked over to study the view. “I didn’t realize at the time it was a dead on poke at the hornet’s nest.”
SINCE I SAW YOU, available now for preorder!

Happy New Year! I hope you and yours had a memorable one. I know I certainly did with my sisters and nieces in London.
As for writing, I’m looking forward to Explosive making a mass market re-release this February. If you haven’t read this intense, erotic suspense, give it a try when you see the pretty gold cover online or at your local store!
I’m really excited about the next book in the Because You Are Mine series coming out on May 6. It’s called SINCE I SAW YOU. You may have read the excerpt for it at the end of BECAUSE WE BELONG? It’s Kam’s and Lin’s story. I had such a terrific time with this beauty and the beast type scenario–Kam is a brilliant inventor who is so rough around the edges it’s comical at times, but the refined, ultra-elegant Lin can’t help but be drawn to his primal, raw sexuality and honesty. They are a favorite couple to be sure. If you read on Kindle, right now Amazon has the entire series marked down to 7.99 per novel, including SINCE I SAW YOU on preorder. Hope you’ll check out the series if you haven’t thus far here. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AMOOD8Y The order of the series is BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE, the complete novel, WHEN I’M WITH YOU, the complete novel, BECAUSE WE BELONG and SINCE I SAW YOU, out May 6.
In other news, I’ll hopefully be doing cover reveals and blurbs soon for my super sexy, exciting new serial called THE AFFAIR, which comes out in September into October. Stay tuned for more!
As for current projects, I’m working on a book called ONLY FOR YOU, which is the next novel in the ONE NIGHT OF PASSION series. Remember Exposed to You’s heroine, Joy Hightower’s rugged, sexy uncle Seth, the brilliant special effects artist? Well this is his story. Plans are currently for it to come out in December of this year, and I’m working feverishly to make that happen.
I think that’ll be enough to keep me busy this year, along with several conventions–RT in New Orleans, RWA in San Antonio, Edinburgh and London, too! Click on the event to get more details, times and dates. More on the London multi-author Headline signing to come!
Hope you’re excited about your 2014 and that it’s a wonderful one!
