A Reader Makes our Day!

Just had to share – a reader sent us these words after finishing the ARC of our upcoming release, The Reunion.

It was HOT!!!!!  I like the graphic sex…  I see books as movies in my head, so when you describe what is happening between them I can see it and feel it happening to me. I identified very strongly with Sarah.  I only wish I had her courage.  So if you ever question that your books have too much sex, don’t.  As far as I’m concerned you can never have too much sex in a book.  You write great sex.  I wish every writer did as well.  Thank you for that, and for not being afraid to show the joy of sex in all its positions and combinations. Sheila

I think maybe that’s a keeper…

Ten more days until The Reunion’s release! Watch this space for details on how to get it free at Amazon!

 

Free FRI-SAT The Best Man ~ Download if you Dare

Five Stars? One Star? Smoking hot? Sleazy? All of the above? Kitty Paige and Jared Jacobs would embrace the entire spectrum of reader reviews and laugh all the way to their next hot scene, and they’d hold nothing back when they got there.

The Best Man is free at Amazon today and tomorrow – but don’t download this book unless you’re ready for some edgy characters who enjoy things like man-sandwiches, ménage, sex buddies, scarf play and polyamory, to mention a few.

Romance with two people who only ever have sex with each other? We like that too, and we’ve got some coming out later this year, but this isn’t one of them. Here’s the blurb, and below that, a sampling of reader reactions, pro and con.

The Best ManBLURB

Bad boy meets bad girl. Is there anything more?

Passionate, hard working and every inch a business woman, Chicago realtor Kitty Paige likes her sex raw and edgy, and sees no reason to limit herself to just one man. Never married and not quite forty, the striking blonde has successfully raised her daughter, Susan, and is already pushing her new-found freedom to the limits.

Wealthy commodities middle-man and race horse owner Jared Jacobs is father of the best man at Susan’s wedding. He is smitten by the vision in yellow who exudes sex as she escorts her daughter down the aisle. Also single, the handsome mustached California ranch owner with mischievous eyes views his sex life as a series of splendid love affairs, and sets out to make Kitty next on the list.

Together and apart, their chemistry is explosive, and their sparkling repartee and steamy sex catch both partners by surprise. Jared is first to recognize he’s fallen in love. When Kitty panics, can Jared finesse his every move and reel her in?

REVIEW SNIPPETS

Loved it Review quotes

Kitty and Jared are my new favorite characters. I love this book. It kept me on edge because Kitty was so unpredictable, which gave this story its twist and turns.

Trying to describe this book so that the review will be allowed, very hard to do thinking along the lines of fifty shades of grey but on a whole different level, throw in a cowboy and boom. Loved this steamy story will definitely read more from this author.

Hated it review quotes

… quite disturbing. I wasn’t upset about the son mentioned in the summary. I’m far from a prude, but I felt like I needed a cheat sheet to remember all the casual sex buddies.

… the characters in The Best Man need to get STD tests right away. I received this for free and I’m very glad because I would be really upset if I had spent money for it.

 

Writing #GLBTQ Literature

Welcome to the Rainbow Book Reviews Blog Hop! Be sure to click on the graphic to link to the rest of the participants. Lots of fabulous prizes – leave a comment to enter, for ours as well as all the grand prizes. We’re offering one free download, reader’s choice, from our published books.

What does writing GLBTQ literature mean to us? We’re a married couple writing erotic romance together under our pen name, Adriana Kraft. We’re also proud parents of a gay son, members of our local PFLAG chapter, and social activists who’ve supported causes we believe in across more decades than we necessarily want to count.

Nearly three and a half years ago, we stood with other supporters on the steps of our local county Courthouse on an April afternoon awaiting word on the Iowa Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. We were prepared to stand for our values whichever way the decision went – and we were thrilled with the outcome (and blogged about it, HERE). I don’t think we can say it better than one of us told a reporter that afternoon: “Love is love, and every couple deserves a happy ending.”

So that’s one major reason we write what we write: to celebrate love wherever it can be found, and to share with the world our belief that all persons, whatever their sexual orientation, deserve equality under the law when they form a love relationship.

There’s more of course – we do write erotic romance, after all, and our tag line is Erotic Romance for Two, Three, or More. There are so many varieties and combinations under the rainbow banner. We’re especially partial to scenes and stories that feature two women together, whether lesbian or bisexual. Our short stories and novels explore what’s possible for women (well, and the occasional man) who can’t fit themselves neatly into the box labeled “straight.” Sometimes their foray into same sex relationships turns out to be a small part of coming into their own sexually, as in Mistress of Purgatory Point. More often, same sex erotic encounters become more central for them, and they find a range of solutions for ongoing expression of their entire spectrum of sexuality. We write a world where three- and even four-way committed relationships are not only possible but welcomed.

We hope you’ll leave us a comment on why GLBTQ literature matters to you, and what your favorite pairings are. We’ll pull a winner by random number Monday morning, August 27. Good luck!
