I just received a call from my Kensington editor. She has offered a contract for two new books! I am over-the-moon thrilled!
The first book, Decadent Master (Masters of Desire book 2), will release in February of 2010.
The second book, Darkest Fire, will release in late 2010.
(Black Gryffon Book 1)
For the darkest fire burns the hottest...
Drako Alexandre isn'’t the handsome billionaire playboy everyone thinks he
is. The mysterious jeweler to the wealthy is also a Black Gryffon, a
guardian of a dark secret. Commanded to marry, he'’s more than happy to take
a wife. Duty is duty. But he won’'t give up his lovers, nor will he ever
allow himself to love a woman. For to love is to become vulnerable. At
least, that is what he'’s always believed...
Rin Mitchell, a woman with a few secrets of her own, accepts Drako’'s
unexpected marriage proposal, not expecting their loveless arrangement to be
a marriage made in heaven. It’s a convenient solution to an overwhelming
problem, until she realizes her lethally seductive husband is a lot more
deadly than the demons that had chased her into his arms.
Drako must defeat a powerful adversary.
Rin must stoke the Gryphon'’s dark fire.
Their love ignites the flame.
(Vampire BDSM. Sequel to Dark Master)
Nursing a broken heart, Wynne Fischer takes the advice of her therapist and pays a visit to a local bondage club. She’s looking for answers to some pressing questions, like why her fiancé decided he’d rather be with a whip-wielding Dom than with her. But the Doms she meets at Twilight end up raising more questions than answers, as they lead her on a journey into the darker side of passion.
Brothers Rolf and Dierk Sorensen hadn’t expected to find themselves competing for Wynne, but in no time that’s exactly what happens. Within weeks, Dierk is tempted to give up his former life of overindulgence for good, and Rolf is draining local florists’ inventory of roses. Making matters worse, Wynne catches the eye of a third Dom, the mysterious Master Zane.
Which will she choose--the reformed playboy, the passionate romantic, or the mysterious seducer? Maybe, it’ll be all three. After all, what girl could pick from three sinfully sexy vampires who know exactly how to make her heart skip a beat or two?
Jane posted an interesting topic today on Dear Author. In a nutshell, she's tired of the same old concepts/themes/myths in paranormal romances. Vampires. Ghosts. Werewolves. She wants something fresh, unique, interesting.
I couldn't agree more. I'm finding myself walking out of the bookstore empty handed. I've even scoured the internet, searching for ebooks written about unique worlds but haven't found much.
This is the reason why I've been dabbling in new worlds/mythologies. The Phoenix legend. The concept of sin. Gryffons.
Will they sell? I hope so, but at the same time I realize it's hard for most readers to try something new. Still, I'd like to ask, what sort of paranormal worlds/characters would you love to read about?
Personally, I'd love to see time travels make a comeback. What would you like to read?
