Releasing May 3rd, my latest Berkley Heat!
My editor thinks I might have created a new genre, erotic “issue” stories! Past Midnight isn’t simply an erotic romp. It’s a passionately emotional story about a couple living through a terrible tragedy that has torn their lives apart. Writing it made me cry. I can imagine nothing worse than losing a child, and that’s what happens to Erin and Dominic DeKnight, they lost their little boy and they are now losing themselves. When I started writing this story, I wasn’t sure how I would bring them together again. I wasn’t sure that was even possible. My editor thought that was going to be a huge challenge, and I’m so glad that she gave me the opportunity to try to write this story. To make matters worse, not only do the DeKnight’s face this emotional challenge, the business they own together, DeKnight Gauges, is under siege, too. I interviewed my friend and former boss, Teresa, on that part of the story. DeKnight Gauges is patterned after her business and some of the corporate intrigues Erin and Dominic face are ideas Teresa provided me with. I greatly admire her as a businesswoman. I’m attending a garden party at her house in a couple of weeks, and I’ll be taking her an autographed copy of the book. I hope she thinks I did the story justice!
Here’s a blurb on Past Midnight, Book 1 in my sexy, emotional new DeKnight trilogy.
How far will they go… Past Midnight.
Erin and Dominic had the perfect life—until a devastating blow rocked their marriage to the core. Now they only reconnect after dark, when sleepless nights become hours of ecstasy as they soothe emotional pain with physical pleasure—but still wake up feeling distant and alone.
Dominic refuses to give up on the relationship. To save their marriage, he sets up erotic adventures that take them far beyond the boundaries of both their comfort zones. As their love life moves from the privacy of their bedroom to public parties and sex retreats where anything is possible, will Dominic and Erin form a deeper bond…or will they lose it all?
“A highly erotic journey for two lost souls desperately seeking solace...captivates from the opening sentence.”
