On June 5, BOUND TO YOU, a novella in the One Night of Passion series will release as an eSpecial from Berkley. BOUND TO YOU takes place within the vicinity of Rill and Katie Pierce’s (from ADDICTED TO YOU) home within the hills of the Shawnee National Forest, and we even learn a bit about what the couple are up to these days.
Actress Jennifer Turner is considered to be by many one of the most beautiful women in the world, but for John Corcoran, who is blind, her looks hardly matter. He’s long been an admirer of her low, sexy voice, however; not that he thinks she’d ever give a blind chiropractor a second thought.
When the two of them fall into a deep sinkhole in the midst of the forest, they are forced to strip away all facade and rely on one another for survival. Jennifer has a secret: she’s deathly afraid of the dark, and for good reason. John lives day in and day out in darkness, however. In her fear, Jennifer begs the sexy, utterly masculine woodsman to make her forget her terror using one tool–blind, raw passion. He complies, and in the darkness, Jennifer learns to see–and feel–what truly matters.
Like many authors of erotic romance, I find it an exciting challenge to write a novella that provides the intense eroticism plus the believable emotional attachment and growing love between the hero and heroine that most readers want. It’s certainly what I would want in a story, no matter if it’s 30K words or 90K words long. Hopefully I’ve succeeded with Bound to You. I can’t wait to hear if you agree.
Oh, and one other bonus! The entire first chapter of EXPOSED TO YOU, the second novel in the One Night of Passion series, starring the sexiest man alive, Everett Hughes (Katie’s brother) will be included in BOUND TO YOU! Just a heads up that in my opinion, Exposed to You contains one of my most favorite and sexiest first chapters I’ve ever written. I really tried to plunge the reader right into the heart of things in it. 🙂
