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!
Time for a little back-list love. What if you’re a well-known erotica author, making a good living, and your personal life sucks? That’s our character’s dilemma in Writing Skin (The Diary, Book Two). Luci’s first full length work, a first-person erotic diary, was so authentic her sister believed it and set off to pursue and halt the lecherous professor she was convinced had debauched her younger sister. That story (The Diary, Book One) has its own happy ending, and now her sister wants to fix Luci’s current problem.
“How long has it been since you’ve even been out with a man?” Kate asked.
“Not long enough.” Luci hugged herself against a shiver. “I don’t seem to have what it takes for a guy to hang around.”
“Nonsense, you probably intimidate the hell out of them. I don’t think I’ve ever known a slip of a woman like you who intimidates so easily. I know, I know,” Kate held up her palm, “you don’t try to intimidate. Most guys probably aren’t accustomed to dating women who write erotica.”
“So true.” Luci grinned. “Had a date ask me to take a taxi home once he heard about my writing. Another wanted me to crawl under the restaurant table and give him head as soon as I told him I wrote erotica.”
“Sounds like something you’d do.”
“In my college days, but even then, I finished my drink before taking on an appetizer.”
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:
