I can’t believe that it’s July. Where did June go? For that matter, where has 2016 gone? Hope everyone’s summers are going well. If you’re looking for an inexpensive beach read and haven’t picked it up, the anthology I did with some other great authors, Summer Confessions, is still .99 over on Amazon. You probably already have that though, so plug time is over.
A few months back, I wrote a draft of a book that is now called Separated, With Benefits. It will be my next release, and if all goes according to plan, it’ll be out sometime in July. I hate setting high expectations, but…I really like this book. It’s different than what I normally write. First of all, it’s a romance… like, we start with a man and a woman who are not a couple (although they are married). Ethan and Nicole, as the title suggests, are going through a trial separation as the book opens, living on opposite sides of the country and struggling with what it means to be separated and single. Do not worry, though, there’s plenty of signature Kenny Wright extramarital confusion and voyeuristic eroticism. At the heart of the book is Ethan’s struggle between trying to rekindle what he once had with Nicole, and letting her go and live her own life apart from him.
Anyway, I enjoyed both writing it (it probably made it onto paper faster than any other book I’ve ever written) and reading it after the fact. I’m anxious, but excited, to share it with all of you.
In the meantime, there are a few other things to look up (these are plug, so move along if you hate plugs):
Okay, so I made up the concept of #newauthornovember (but it comes with a hashtag!), but with the influx of (really bad) erotica hitting the Amazon market, it’s not a bad time to introduce the idea. There’s just so much out there, and so much of it is poorly written, or too short, or obvious cash grabs. It can be overwhelming to sift through. I understand it, because when I’m not writing, I have a hard time finding good stuff to read, too. Of course there’s Ben Boswell, Max Sebastian, and Kirsten McCurran. I’d like to mention a couple newer authors to the scene: Arnica Butler and Sidney Sitravon. (more…)
Happy Friday (or Saturday, or Sunday, or whenever you first read this). I’ve got a new short out, exclusively on Amazon (which also means that if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, you can borrow this for free).
Bryce King was his wife’s college boyfriend during her “bad boy phase,” whatever that means. That, and a single photo, are all that Chris knew about the guy. So naturally, he’s curious. When Chris finds himself seated next to Bryce King on a plane, headed back home to Philly, he realizes that he’s got a golden opportunity.
But when he does learn more about the kind of man Bryce was, and the wild and dirty women he dated, can Chris handle it? Is that his wife that Bryce is talking about, and did she do all of those things? And when he finally gets home, will he ever be able to look at her the same way again?
Max and Katie have tasted something forbidden, opening their marriage sexually to other people. It’s been a wild ride, and they are stronger for the experience. Max craves more and gives his headstrong wife the green light to play on her own–even as she vows to never risk their relationship again. But is that a promise she can keep in her new world of sexual freedom?
In this sequel to Kenny Wright’s Something Forbidden, follow Katie as she explores the new and exciting world suddenly open to her. When nothing’s forbidden, can she keep touch with what’s real, what’s important, or will it all slip away?
I don’t think that naughty wives, romance, and happy endings are mutually exclusive. Anyone who’s read my books shouldn’t be surprised by this, but I think there’s a wide enough array of opinion that it bears putting my own out there.
For me, the niche genre of wife-sharing, or whatever you want to call it, is all about the couple. That relationship between husband and wife is the main character, and like any character, it can either grow better from experience, or worse. Maybe it’s the optimism that I carry through life, but I will always go for growth. (more…)
Here’s a taste of my latest novel, Something Forbidden, a story that demonstrates that even the most normal of couples and the strongest of relationships are looking for something a little forbidden to spice things up. This will be available on Amazon around September 22. You can sign up for alerts on my author page.
I nodded at the man’s half-empty pint. “Refill?”
“No, I’m fine for now.”
I knew the look in his eyes. He was a guy with a secret he was dying to tell. I’ve been in the bartending business close to 15 years—recognizing that look was second nature.
I cut right to it. I found that most people in his situation appreciated that. “Want to talk about it?”
The guy’s brows went up. He glanced behind him, thinking that maybe the question wasn’t directed to him. Seeing no one else, a smile spread across his face. “Am I that obvious?”
Golden blonde hair to match her golden skin. Rich blue eyes. Tiny black dress. Legs encased in black silk that went on and on. She sat alone at the bar, waiting.
Dean’s drinking buddies thought she was hot, and as Dean watched her cross her legs and bring the Cosmo to her lips, he couldn’t deny it.
She was also his wife… Danielle.
If you like stories about wives acting a little badly, then this is the story for you. For Danielle, this is the beginning. Read how it unfolds.
