Looking Forward to 2018 #goals #writing

Hi everyone,

Wow – I can’t believe this is my last post here for 2017. This year seems to have gone so fast! But it was a vast improvement on 2016, so I’m definitely not complaining.

As is usually the case at this time of year, I’m thinking about my goals and aspirations for next year. The writing market is growing tougher and tougher, publishers are closing, readers can be difficult to find… and yet, I’m not giving up. Far from it. I still love writing, and I’m still doing okay. Far from making a living from it, sadly, but it supplements what I’m earning. Most importantly, though, I’m still getting great feedback. I get messages from readers saying how much they’ve enjoyed my books, I receive positive reviews, and that keeps me going.

At the same time, though, I’ve got to adapt to stay in the game. I have to do dull adulting stuff like pay bills, and buy groceries, put petrol in my car, feed the dog, so earning money is a must. Which is why I’ve started to turn, as I mentioned in an earlier post, to writing to market. There’s no way I’ll suddenly drop everything and start writing sci-fi (if I do, someone should probably send me to a doctor, as there’s a good chance I’ve been given a lobotomy), but my upcoming reverse harem series was written to try to entice the seemingly rabid readership of reverse harem romance fans. But I wouldn’t have done it if the genre didn’t appeal to me in the first place. It did, though, and Mia’s Men is coming next month – what a start to the year! I’m so excited about it!

So, for early 2018 at least, that’s where my focus will be. I have a couple of projects I’ve committed to, but otherwise, I’ll be working on Mia’s Wedding, book two in The Heiress’s Harem series, and then Mia’s Choice, which is book three. After that – who knows? I do have potential other reverse harem romance ideas bubbling away in the back of my head, so I guess we’ll have to see what happens! If people enjoy Mia and her bunch of gorgeous guys, then I’ll let my Muse decide. I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve spent with Mia and the boys so far.

I’ll also be going through old contracts and possibly getting rights to other books back, so there may well be more re-releases dotted in amongst the new releases. Just a little housekeeping! 😉

Other that that – keeping my head above water, earning enough cash to go on a couple of holidays… anything beyond that is a bonus! So if you’ve bought one of my books in 2017, I say a hearty thank you, hope you enjoyed it, and that you’ll check out others.

Here’s to an amazing new year for all of us!

Happy Reading,

Lucy x

A menage, hot cops, tattoos, and South Florida – a few of my favorite things #TinaDonahueBooks #WickedTimesTwo #EroticRomance #Menage

Unlike Julie Andrews’ old tune where she sang about loving raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens as her fave things, I prefer something a bit more racy.

A menage. Hot cops. Tattoos. South Florida. And a heroine who just wants to have some wicked fun.

That’s the theme of my upcoming release Wicked Times TwoOMG, I love menages, especially when there’s a little kink. Jasmina, my heroine, has had it hard for the last few months and she’s looking to loosen up and enjoy herself. Who can blame her when she sets her sights on Noah and Kyle?

Here’s the cover art and blurb.

Book Three Wicked Brand – Erotic Contemporary

Releasing January 22, 2018

AMAZONGOODREADS

Series Blurb:

South Florida just got a helluva lot steamier… During the day, the staff at Wicked Brand makes ink dreams a reality for their appreciative clients. After hours, this naughty crew engages in sensual delights as wild as the designs they’re selling. Their motto? Nothing forbidden. Nothing held back.

Wicked Times Two Blurb:

She’s through with love and just wants to have some wicked fun…

Burned by her cheating boyfriend, Jasmina is finished with the idea of forever after with any guy. That fairy tale doesn’t exist—at least not for her. From now on, protecting her heart and letting pleasure rule is her motto.

Lucky for her, she has the perfect men in mind. Noah and Kyle, two of the hottest cops in West Palm Beach. She hasn’t been able to get them out of her head since they handled an altercation at Wicked Brand, the tattoo parlor she manages. When they come back to get inked, sparks fly.

Noah’s ready to play, and Kyle’s on board. All they want is her—submission, bondage, spanking…no strings or regrets. Seductive days roll into steamy nights, igniting feelings the guys hadn’t expected and Jasmina can’t deny.

What began as a sensual adventure could turn into so much more…if Jasmina can risk a different kind of love.

NEW FROM LYNN BURKE!
Second Go-Round
Elite Escorts #2
Contemporary Erotic Romance, Suspense

 

Christine Gemberling doesn’t enjoy breaking hearts, but she has yet to find a man who knows how to handle the package between his legs well enough to satisfy her needs. No man has held her interest beyond a second date—much less her love. Until one sultry night with an Elite Escort rocks her world like never before.

 

Professional escort Jarod Zimmerman has a strict code when working with clients—no emotional attachments. But the beer-drinking, football loving Christine and her curves push beyond his control, until the guarded playboy finds himself craving another go-round with the only woman intriguing enough to make him break his own code.

 

With her defenses stronger than his favorite football team, it will take more than Jarod’s talents in bed to change her stance on relationships. He’ll have to sacrifice his heart when the unexpected circumstance thrown their way threatens to rip them apart forever.

 

*Warning: Exhibition, spanking, anal sex, sex toys

Excerpt:
Jarod lowered onto the limo seat beside me and pressed close, his large hand grasping the top of my thigh.
“Where to?” Ricky asked as he settled behind the wheel a moment later.
I spouted off my address quite a ways up Route 1, and with a nod, he shut the window between us, encasing Jarod and I in complete privacy. Soft music came to life, and seconds later, the limo pulled out into Boston’s nighttime traffic.
“For the first go-round, I’m going to fuck you against the front door of your house, but right now,” Jarod said, lowering to his knees in front of me, “I’m going to bury my nose between these thighs and lick your cunt until you squirm.” 
“I like the way you think,” I said, my voice breathless, betraying my body’s need.
His hands slid up my thighs, pushing my skirt into a bunch. I wiggled, assisting in his plan, and he yanked me to the seat’s edge.
“Comfy?” he asked, trailing a fingertip against the soaked silk covering me.
“Comfy enough.”
Jarod hooked his fingers under the sides of my panties and pulled them down my legs, releasing my heeled feet one at a time. He tossed the panties aside, and grasping my knees, spread me wide.
“Bare.” He stared at the smooth skin between my thighs as he moved close. “I like that.” Palming my ass, he lifted me and buried his face in my pussy as promised, my moan and his groan colliding in the air between us.
My eyelids fluttered shut and head tipped back as he ate me out like a starving man. Tongue, nose, and teeth, he didn’t pussyfoot around, but tortured me with his need to taste every inch, fuck me deep with his long tongue, nibble my swollen lips … flick and suck my throbbing clit.
My fingers found purchase in his hair, and I ground myself against his face, chasing my orgasm. Bastard let off and dipped low to lick my ass and tongue me every time I neared the crest. I tried to force his head back up to my clit, but he held steady, denying me what I wanted.
“Goddamn it, Jarod!” I yanked on his hair as my clit popped from his mouth’s suction again and he roamed southward to my ass.
He snickered and caught my gaze as his tongue rimmed my puckered hole.
My hold tightened on his hair, my heart thundered in my chest. “Please. I need to come.”
Finally—finally—he pressed two fingers deep into my sopping wet core. “Is this what you need, Christine? My fingers fucking your cunt and my mouth on your clit?”
“Oh, fuck.” My head tipped back again as he latched onto my clit. “Don’t stop. Please … Christ, don’t stop!” You’d think I hadn’t climaxed in months the way my orgasm ripped through me. 
Jarod’s fingers and tongue drew out every clench of my pussy, every shudder rippling down through me as I gasped for breath. He lapped up every trace of my cum and sucked his fingers clean, the noises in his throat barely reaching through the ringing in my ears. 
I sagged into the leather seat, sucking wind. “Holy shit. It’s no wonder you get paid to please a woman.”
