How cool is this? Totally hot and sexy and yet not a nipple in sight. I have to admit I spent about half an hour just staring at his mouth. I like me a man with a bit of stubble :)
This book comes out at the end of January 08 from Kensington Aphrodisia, and it is, despite the title, Regency erotic romance. It's very edgy on the erotic romance front but I don't mind being an envelope pusher!
Here's a quick blurb:
Valentin Sokorvsky decides to take a wife but he has no intention of sharing either his darkest sexual fantasies or his heart with her. He prefers to pretend that six years spent as a sex slave in a Turkish brothel have nothing to do with the successful business man he is or the devoted husband he intends to become.
Sara Harrison is more than willing to escape her comfortable but stifling existence and let Valentin tutor her in erotic pleasures. But when Valentin’s sordid past threatens both his business and their marriage, is she willing to embrace her husband’s carnal depths in order to reveal and accept the man he truly is?
I did mention it's not your average erotic romance, although it's not quite erotica either. Both the male characters, Valentin and his friend, Peter, who takes hero status in the next book, have very interesting sexual preferences formed by their experiences in an unsavory Turkish brothel. It was a pleasure to write about them and the women who eventually come to love them.
And just so you know-it's already available to pre-order at Amazon.com-just in case you're dying to get your hands on it!
