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

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.

Tattoos in romance #books – yay or nay? #Sexy #Ink

hand tattoo_DTIME_55959396I came relatively late to the joys of getting a tattoo. My daughter, who has several, convinced me to go with her and get inked last year. Mother/daughter bonding of a slightly unusual nature! At the time I felt daring, a little bit “out there”, and embarrassed, all at the same time.

But afterwards I couldn’t stop looking at the ink on my arm. I love it! My design includes the symbol of a typography flourish, flanked by my daughter’s names, denoting my hopes and dreams for both my children, and my writing career, to flourish.

Of course, once I’d joined the “ink club”, I started noticing ink all around me. Specifically, I started noticing how many romance book characters these days – heroes and heroines – have tattoos.

For me, both as a reader and writer, a tattoo can add a layer of complexity to a character that is incredibly intriguing. The hint of a wild past. The quintessential romance hero bad boy. Or a deep-seated angst too strong to be expressed verbally that must instead be etched in perpetuity on someone’s body. Maybe there’s a rebellious nature hidden beneath a veneer of civility. So many possibilities; so many potential stories behind every tattoo.

Meika, the heroine in my current WIP, Ice Queen (a Gods of Love novel), has survived a terrible past and the word tattooed on her wrist is a constant reminder not to give up the fight for life:

JenniferLynne_IceQueen_200pxEros traced the word etched in black. Survive. The letters stood out against her pale skin with stark clarity, her wrist so delicately thin he could crush it in an instant, if he chose. The word contained everything she was, everything she had become, everything she was yet to be. So brave and strong, and yet at the same time so incredibly tragic.

Survive. It was as if the word was searing itself into his mind, as permanent as the ink that decorated her wrist. He bent his head to hide the sudden moisture dampening his eyes.

I am a god. Gods do not cry at the fleeting whims of mortals.

Some readers, like me, love their heroes or heroines with ink. Some hate it. Which camp do you belong to, and why?
