All Pleasures Great and Small
Traveling is one of my passions. Paris, Marrakech, Barcelona, Porto. I love anywhere in the world where I can eat unfamiliar food, see the remains of ancient architecture, and hear different languages. Other countries offer me that sort of variety, but lately I’ve been overcome by the desire to see cities in the United States, explore those places and be inspired by the people there. Without very much thought, Miami is one American city that instantly captured my imagination.
Miami, as I see it, is a delicious and addictive playground ripe for exploration. And the hunt for love. That’s the main reason I set my first two novels, Pleasure Under the Sun and Sultry Pleasure, there. These connected books feature strong and beautiful characters fighting their way to the love they deserve. The playground of Miami is hot and, of course, “sultry” with plenty of nightclubs, beautiful people, a mansion or two, plus the difficult things that draw a man and woman together before tugging them apart again for an explosive reunion.
The first novel, Pleasure Under the Sun, explores the chemistry between a sexy Jamaican artist and a straight-laced, once bitten financial advisor with an aversion to any man with a “frivolous” career. That novel also introduces my character Marcus Stanfield, a playboy billionaire and philanthropist who is used to getting his own way.
In Sultry Pleasure, Marcus encounters the gorgeous and not at all pliable Diana Hobbes, a woman who challenges everything he has ever known including what it is to be a good lover and a good man. His life of partying, casual hook-ups, and corporate takeovers was something he never thought he’d change. After meeting Diana, however, his priorities abruptly shift from making yet another million to getting the angelic and romance-shy woman into his bed. But years before, Marcus’s father, a successful and ruthless businessman, drove Diana’s father to suicide, leaving her bitter and angry at the entire Stanfield clan. Marcus, when he begins to woo Diana, unknowingly steps into her crosshairs.
Miami is all sensuality and sin. And Marcus, Diana, Seven, and Bailey inhabit this world and try to find a piece of paradise within it. Step into this rarified space with them and stay a while. I promise to make the visit a memorable one.
About the books:
Pleasure Under the Sun
They meet at an invitation-only party in Miami. Desire instantly ignites. Financial advisor Bailey Hughes knows better than to get involved with playboy, Seven Carmichael. But the gorgeous, world-renowned sculptor refuses to take no for an answer. And soon Bailey finds herself aboard a private yacht enjoying days and nights of pleasure beyond her hottest fantasies.
The moment he saw her, Seven was obsessed. From Key West to an intimate Jamaican paradise, he’s embarked on a campaign of seduction to make Bailey his. With a passion the wary businesswoman can’t resist, he’s breaking down all her defenses. What will it take to win what he wants and needs most—Bailey’s carefully guarded heart?
Dim the Lights: Three Novellas
Islands of Desire by Lindsay Evans
Erica Cross’s tightly scheduled Greek Island getaway is thrown into disarray by a longer-than-expected cruise off Santorini. But hard-bodied and mysterious crewman, Nikolas Stephanides, makes this recent law school grad forget all about timetables-and her inhibitions. Is Erica’s gorgeous lover too good to be true?
Liquid Chocolate by Velvet Carter
Gourmet chocolatier Mika Madison is staying passionately single. Blaine Chess plans to change her mind, but she is just as determined to resist his sexy advances. Until the attraction simmering between them explodes during an unforgettable night in snowy Vail….that really melts them both!
Her Ten Wild and Sexy Nights by Theodora Taylor
Janatha Simons is jetting off to Paris solo to take her mind off a very public breakup that left her with no love for athletes. But before the plane even lands, she’s starting a fling with ruggedly sexy Mick Attwater, and he’s taking her to new sky-high heights. Could this affair turn into something more-even after his secret is revealed?
Sultry Pleasure (August 2014)
A hot Miami night. A glittering gala. And a gorgeous billionaire wants to spirit her away. This might be a fantasy for most women, but not Diana Hobbes. She’s at a charity event representing the nonprofit adoption agency she has poured her heart and soul into. And despite the hot body, easy charm and luxury ride of playboy Marcus Stanfield, Diana has nothing in common with him.
Marcus is unaccustomed to having women refuse him. So he is surprised by Diana’s brush-off – and intrigued. Angelically kind and devilishly sexy, Diana is worth more than a little effort…so an epic seduction campaign begins. Lavish evenings, small touches, and grand gestures all say “I want you.” The desire is mutual, the tension maddening. But which will Diana ultimately choose: holding back… or giving in?
