I’ve been a little delinquent in sharing my latest cover designs, but this isn’t to say that I don’t have any new ones. In addition to covers for my own stories, Leap and Rediscovering Danielle, I’ve done a couple for my friend Kirsten McCurran, and as hot as I think the covers are, the stories are even hotter.
If 50 Shades of Grey has whet your appetite for a little light bondage and D/s, then check out Bound by Two. I’m not normally into that sort of thing, but I found myself captivated by this one. Definitely a scorcher. There’s a naughty wife aspect to it, too.
A day of painting by a married couple and their longtime friend turns into a night none of them will ever forget! Stacey is just as comfortable with their friend Alex as she is with her husband, Tim. She should be, she’s known him just as long, and even dated him first, if only briefly. But that was long in the past, and there has not been anything between Stacey and Alex since, not until too much alcohol and a hot summer day turn their usual flirting into something more. Throw in some teasing about Stacey reading Fifty Shades of Grey, and her husband, Tim, sees an opportunity to make a wild night happen. All he needs is a way to tie Stacey down, and she will be helpless before the two men.
I wrote a whole post on wife-watching, so you know this one’s to my taste. As always, Kirsten does a great job of taking a common fantasy and adding life to it. This story could have been all action and little emotion, but what Kirsten wrote was thoughtful, conflicted, and even emotional at times. And that sets it apart.
When Cara and Frank were a young married couple, he was a high school football coach and half the team used to hang out at the coach’s house, leading more than one player to crush on the coach’s pretty wife. Fast forward years later and one of Frank’s former players is a major football star. When Marcus is awarded for his charity work, he invites his old coach and Cara to the black tie banquet as a thank you. Frank and Cara make the most of the chance to dress up and go into the city, deciding that on their night on the town “anything goes.” The fun starts in the limo, but when they arrive at the banquet and Cara starts shamelessly flirting with Marcus, the couple must decide if they are ready to cross the line and make their fantasy a reality. And Marcus must decide if he’s ready to finally close the deal and enjoy his old crush.
