Welcome to MidWeek Tease, where authors share tempting snippets to tide you over till the weekend. A huge shout out to author Angelica Dawson for hosting our blog hop every week!
We’re continuing our back-list love with another excerpt from Writing Skin, Book Two in the series The Diary.
In The Diary Book One, Luci’s first long manuscript, a diary, was so successful her sister believed it and set off to pursue and halt the lecherous professor she was convinced had debauched her younger sister. In Writing Skin, Luci has just begun another manuscript, entitled Watching, and readers get a peek at it throughout the book. Here’s an early excerpt:
“But this is Jake’s idea,” Angela said.
Shaking her head vigorously, Edie protested, “He may have been the catalyst. In some sort of way, I suppose his raising the idea has given me permission to explore my inner self. I’ve often dreamed about being with you this past year.”
“Nighttime dreams?” Angela arched a questioning eyebrow.
“No. Not always.” Edie wet her lips. “Not lately.”
“Tell me about the daytime dreams.”
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:
