I received the finalized blurb for All In with the Duke (release date: Nov 11th, 2013):
Max Arrington, the Duke of Pelham, vows to never again let a handsome face blind him to a man's true intentions. But ten months of celibacy and lonely nights drive him to a decadent brothel, where a beautiful young man arouses his illicit passions as never before.
Tristan Walsh has grown tired of being used for men's pleasure. But his latest client is different: commanding yet generous, Max makes him feel cared for as well as wanted. Yet Tristan knows he'll never have the choice to leave the brothel and submit only to Max.
So when Max invites him to be his guest at his country estate, Tristan eagerly agrees to his terms—days to do as he pleases while Max tends to the dukedom, and nights spent together in wicked play. But when the "business arrangement" begins to deepen into something more, Tristan must face the fact that he has no true place in Max's life—or in Max's guarded heart…
And I got a peek of the draft version of the cover art a few days ago. I love it and can't wait to share it! As soon as I get the final version, I'll post it here and on my website.
Other than that, I've been pretty boring of late. I'm working on Sharp Love, the second book in the Gambling on Love series. The book features Max's ever-useful carriage driver (a 6'5" giant of a guy...I'll admit to checking out pics of Joe M as part of my research - oh, the trials of research *g*) and his old friend from the east side of London, who happens to be a card sharp (hence the title). I'm in the middle of the book, there's some smexing and angsting going on, so fun stuff to write.
I can't believe August is almost over. Where did the summer go? Oh well. But at least fall means All In with the Duke will release soon, and I'm super excited about that. :)
