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…

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!

It’s finally here!
BECAUSE WE BELONG
A BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE NOVEL, BOOK #3
Introduced in New York Times bestselling author Beth Kery’s erotic phenomenon Because You Are Mine, they aroused an “addictive and delicious” (USA Today Happy Ever After Reviews) romance that dared to break the rules of attraction.
IAN…“[the] hero…dark, mysterious, and very dominant” (Smexybooks), a sexual force to be reckoned with, a man accustomed to getting what he wants.
FRANCESCA…“a fascinating heroine” (Heroes and Heartbreakers), a woman who had no idea how far she was willing to go in the name of love.
In Because We Belong Ian and Francesca return to reignite the exquisite passions that drew them together, and to finally face the intimate secrets that threatened to separate them forever. The secrets of an inescapable past that was one man’s darkest mystery—a darkness that seduced one woman and forever held her spellbound with forbidden desire. For both of them, the next step is total abandon…

Excerpt: Because We Belong, available November 5, 2013
She looked over his shoulder, seeing Gerard twirling an ecstatic-?looking Clarisse just feet away but not really absorbing anything but the feeling of being in Ian’s arms.
“Your breaking off things between us wasn’t easy, Ian, but you need hardly consider me an emergency. I’ve been doing fine.”
“I know that. And I didn’t break things off between us.”
“You disappeared for half a year without so much as a text message,” she said with dripping sarcasm.
“I thought it’d be best. A clean break. While I tried to figure things out.”
“Well it worked,” she told him with fake airiness. “The clean break,” she clarified, rising anger making it possible to meet his stare again. It was a mistake. His gaze blazed down at her face, the emotion in his eyes palpable, but also completely indecipherable, like trying to read the meaning in a raging inferno.
“I didn’t want to hurt you. It wasn’t my intention,” he said.
“Intended or not, you did.”
His mouth went hard. His nostrils flared. Why didn’t he at least apologize? He owed her that, didn’t he? He was the most infuriating man she’d ever known. His hand shifted on her waist so that his entire palm was on bare skin. His heat poured into her. He pressed, as if he wanted to detail the sensation of her backbone. For a moment, she forgot what they’d been discussing as her belly brushed his pelvis.
Her core contracted, the immediate sharp ache shocking her.
“Francesca, I think you might be in danger.”
She blinked, totally disoriented by what had just occurred. It was as if her body had a mind all its own, straining toward him, aching for him against her will.
“What?” she asked, sure she’d misunderstood him.
“Someone tried to kidnap you in Chicago.”
She made an incredulous sound. “Kidnap? What are you talking about? You mean that man who tried to rob Davie and me?”
“I read the police report,” he said coldly. “That wasn’t an attempted robbery. Why everybody else seems to be ignoring the obvious is beyond me.”
“You read . . .” she faded off, scolding herself for her initial surprise. Ian had stunned her many times with his ability to get almost any information he desired, even highly confidential information.
This was yet another example of his power, not to mention something that bordered on paranoia.
“Have you been spying on me?” she accused.
“No. But I’ve been keeping tabs. Just to make sure you were all right.”
“Well your concern was misguided,” she said sharply. “Both in the case of that attempted robbery incident and in general.” She stepped back as the music came to an end. He dropped his arms slowly to his sides. “I’ve been doing just fine without you, Ian.”
“You’re lying,” she heard him say quietly.
“Why would you assume that?” she asked under her breath as chatting people started to move past them as they left the dance floor.
“You’re the other half of me. I feel like something has been ripped out of my chest not being with you. I think it’s the same for you.”
Her mouth dropped open at his quiet audacity. Her eyes burned at his stark declaration of pain.
“Then maybe you shouldn’t have been the one to rip it apart,” she hissed, knowing her naked heart was fully exposed in that moment, but not caring.
She turned and headed for the doors.
