When Bella’s father runs into the woman known as the Beast, she agrees to take his place as a prisoner for the next six months. Plenty of time to get out of her pending marriage to the son of the village’s wealthiest family.
When Bella is sent a list of demands and rules, one rule stood out: DON’T FALL IN LOVE.
That seemed simple enough, for who could fall in love with a Beast?

We’re continuing our back-list love with another excerpt from Writing Skin, Book Two in the series The Diary. Sometimes even women can miss-read each other’s cues…
Luci worked the skirt down over Chai’s hips and she stepped out of it. “You are a gorgeous woman,” Luci murmured, toweling one leg and then the other. “I love your deep-copper skin tone.”
She reached for the dark thong.
“Leave it,” Chai said, grabbing her wrists. “I need to slow down.”
Luci felt a wave of disappointment and embarrassment course through her body—how had she misread things so badly?
“Hey,” Chai said, grabbing her by the chin. “I don’t mean stop; I just mean let’s slow down and enjoy the journey.” Chai dipped her head and slanted her full lips across Luci’s mouth.
What would it be like to be romanced by not one but two potential partners, simultaneously? Luci Parker has finally achieved the career of her dreams as an erotica author – but the only romance in her life these days is in the books she writes. Long attracted to both men and women, Luci despairs of ever finding just one person to settle down with.
Owners of a South Side Chicago bookstore, Chai and Frank Ferguson eagerly devour Luci’s books as fast as she can write them, and now they wonder if she might be the woman they’ve been looking for.
Frank is deeply in love with Chai but knows she’ll never be complete without a woman to love as well. Can he match the passion of not one but two exquisite and complicated women at the same time? Will Luci even want him? And if Chai truly falls in love with Luci, will there be room for him?
All three characters in this intense erotic love story wrestle with the meaning of love, lust and commitment as they struggle to find themselves—and each other.
Writing Skin is available in print in the two-volume series, The Diary, or solo as an e-book:

When you apologize to someone, don’t you expect them to acknowledge it, at least a little? These two are gunning for each other so hard the apologies just fly by unnoticed. Do you think maybe there’s a reason for that?
“Whoa there, don’t get all bent out of shape. I’m Clint Travers.” The stranger rested a hand on Hope’s withers. “I run some horses here from time to time. Didn’t mean to impugn your horsemanship, ma’am.”
“Well, fine.” Cassie pushed stray hair from her eyes. “Maybe I overreacted some.”
He ignored her attempt at apology. “So, this is the filly that’s created such a fuss around shedrow.”
“What do you mean? I didn’t know anyone noticed.”
“Not notice! You got to be kidding—or incredibly naive.”
Cassie clenched her teeth and glared at the stranger.
“Strike that last comment,” he said quickly. “I seem to be putting my foot in my mouth.”
“Apparently you’ve a large enough mouth for it to fit, with plenty of room to spare.”
