Well, it's that time of the year! Some of you are already celebrating (and Happy Hanukkah to you!); some of you already have (Blessed Be!), and some celebrations are yet to come (Merry Christmas, and Happy Kwanzaa!). For anyone I've missed... Bah Humbug, or however you articulate your season's greetings. :-)
So - tell me, what are your holiday traditions? Mine include avoidance and panic for a month or so leading up to the season, putting up the tree no more than one week before Christmas, frazzled bursts of last-minute shopping, and an all-night Christmas Eve wrapping marathon (yes, I have tried to break the habit. Alas, it doesn't work.)
And in the meantime, while most of publishing is taking a vacation, I'm still working! Trust me, this is not a complaint. If I wasn't doing something writing-related, I'd go out of my mind and take everyone with me.
Today is the release day for my latest novel, SKIN DEEP, from Loose Id (I know, you were just dying to hear all about it, weren't you?). I'm very excited about this, since it's my first foray into erotica. Please indulge me as I share my little blurb and a beautiful piece of cover art by Anne Cain (or, ya know, feel free to ignore the rest of this post. :-)
Will Ambrose knows everything about love – except how to find it himself. He hosts a popular GLBT relationship radio show, but his own affairs have been rocky and abusive. With sexy, seductive tattoo artist Cobalt, it's lust at first sight. Unfortunately he's already involved ... until that night, when his late arrival home sends his cop partner into a jealous, violent rage.
Cobalt is a Fae, banished to live among humans. His studio, The Grotto, is both a hot spot for the NYC body art crowd and a haven for other Fae seeking protection. Though he's given up on relationships, since his human lovers tend to go insane when they discover his true nature, he can't help his lustful reaction to Will when the radio host visits The Grotto. He tries to dismiss it, but is compelled to get involved when a cab deposits a battered, broken Will at his door, with Cobalt's name on his lips.
Can their powerful attraction – and phenomenal sex – overcome an abusive closeted cop, a traitorous Fae who tries to divide them, and an ex-lover with inhuman powers who'll stop at nothing to take Cobalt back ... including going through Will?
