Toxic Desire is out today!

ToxicDesire-x750I’m so thrilled to share this book with you 🙂 I’m in love with the heroine for all her strength and dedication to finding the truth; the hero for all his sensual intensity and his inability to not be heroic; the “sex planet” for all the fun it creates, yes, but also its power to bring out their deepest desires and force the characters to face them.

Toxic Desire’s cover is here!

I’ve been working on this sci-fi erotic series, Planet of Desire, for about nine months now, and I am beyond thrilled to share it with you. The first installment releases March 19th, 2018. The cover came out beautifully and depicts so well the fraught intimacy that comes from the forced proximity of Oten and Nemona, crash landing on a sex planet in a fight for their lives against each other and the alien planet itself.

11 Things the NY Times COULD Write About Romance

I sent an email to the NY Times Book Review. Following Robert Gottlieb’s wildly inaccurate and offensive article last week, “A Roundup of the Season’s Romance Novels” , Radhika Jones’s rebuttal “Who Gets To Write About Romance?” still completely missed the point yesterday. So I responded to her question: “What are the stories in the field of romance that you think are most significant?”
Here are mine! (I may have gotten a little carried away. The Times has so much room for improvement! *side-eye* Even still, I by no means had space to cover all of the offensive slights in either article. Please excuse the things I had to leave out.)
 

Dear New Times Book Review,

I appreciate that you have a desire to cover romance. It is a nice change. Though, it is long overdue and the lack of coverage on the genre is itself discouraging. To have the article misrepresent the genre, whether written by a romance enthusiast or a critic, is damaging to the awareness the romance industry is attempting to bring to the validity of its genre.
The following are possible topics which would show respect for the marginalized genre that is so often derided, mocked and overlooked in our culture and by the literary world at large.
