I finished a brand spanking new novella yesterday. I realized, as I wrote the last full-stop and pushed away from my desk, that my heart was beating really fast. It has never occurred to me before that, in finishing something, my endorphins might just go into over-drive. I was excited, relieved and more than a little proud of myself.
This new novel is another interracial romance – my favourite! Set in India, the story revolves around two troubled souls, finding their way back to each other after a decade apart. At one point, I found my eyes welling up as I was writing, which I suppose is a good sign!
I’ve already written the blurb, so today I will tackle the dreaded synopsis. After a little bit of polishing, I hope to have it submitted to my editor this coming week. If she deems it worthy of publication, you might just see another sexy schmexy ebook coming your way!
Well, I am delighted to announce that my novel is scheduled to be released very shortly with Ellora’s Cave! You can read the official excerpt over in “Writing ‘n Stuff’ but below I have posted the official blurb as well! I had so much fun writing this. There is something about the idea of professional thieves that I find so attractive. Maybe because I like a bad guy, but not fully-fledged murderous felon? Or maybe because I don’t have diamonds and paintings worth millions…? I suppose I see it as a sort of Robin Hood kind of thing, only a bit more self-serving. Anyway, Vikram Singh – my hero – became very real in my mind, and I was able to perfectly envision him in my head when I was writing. Hopefully his bold, brash and very roguish character comes across to the reader as well!
He’s fast. She’s faster.
Lisabeth Baker is the best professional thief in the business and she’s just acquired a mythical golden flute—the same golden flute her rival, Vikram Singh, desperately needs.
Life in their business is a lonely one and Lisabeth has been struggling to find a man who can satisfy her needs. Vikram is everything she could possibly want in a bed-mate and she’s willing to cut him a deal—two nights of no-strings sex in which Vikram must satisfy her every whim and desire, no questions asked. He’s the only man who has ever been able to match her wit and handle her acerbic attitude, and Lisabeth discovers that with each sexual encounter her feelings for the Indian deepen further, leaving her far outside her comfort zone.
For Vikram, Lisabeth is the most infuriating woman he has ever met, which makes it difficult to understand why he wants her. The occasional glimpses into her softer side have Vikram contemplating what a life with Lisabeth Baker would be like, and he soon realizes two nights won’t be enough.
