NEW CONTRACT: His Wicked Celtic Kiss @KarynGerrard fr @Crimson_Romance #comingsoon




New contract for HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS signed with Crimson Romance for book 2 in The Wicked Men of Rockland series. Book 1 was THE WICKED BAD.

Wait a minute, you mean The Wicked Bad was the start of a series?

Why yes, it was! I have no idea why it wasn't listed that way at ebook sites, because I made it quite clear to the lady who was the editor-in-chief at the time that this would be a series. However, now that I've decided to proceed with the series, maybe the listings can be fixed.

I have written quite a few novellas, but am now stretching my writing into longer pieces, and His Wicked Celtic Kiss is around 57,000 words. I am constantly learning the more I write to fashion a longer narrative.

And enjoying it while I do. This new book will showcase the secondary characters from The Wicked Bad, Julie and Lorcan.

Crimson is under new leadership and I like the direction they are heading, so I do hope to keep the series with this publisher.

The plan is to have this book out in the early to mid fall. I want to thank Crimson Romance for working around my various personal issues this spring and allowing me time to work on this book. You all rock.

Also, this will be released in Crimson's Contemporary line, not Spicy. This is a mainstream, category romance, though the heat level will be sensual. My first category, though technically The Wicked Bad was, only...way hotter.

I have started a Wicked Men of Rockland board at Pinterest. Check it out HERE

The model below? The muse for my sexy Irish hero, Lorcan Byrne, in His Wicked Celtic Kiss. Yow. Perfect match.

More info to come, and already plotting out book 3 (concerning Liam De Luca, secondary character in His Wicked Celtic Kiss) When I will get around to writing it is another question!



VERY UNOFFICIAL BLURB for His Wicked Celtic Kiss

Julie Denison was in a good place with her hurtful past...until she met Lorcan Byrne. Lorcan is incredibly handsome, and with a teasing wink and sexy Irish lilt he tilts her world on its axis. Julie knows Lorcan is in town for only six months and resolves to make it the best half year of her life­—and his. 

Lorcan Byrne’s previous life of danger has caused him to step back and take a little safe downtime in the small Maryland city of Rockland. He didn’t count on meeting someone like Julie. Her courageous vulnerability and passionate nature affect him in ways he finds delightful and moving. Believing he’s incapable of love, Lorcan tries to keep distant from Julie, but is always drawn back like a moth to the flame that is her beautiful soul.

Can Julie convince Lorcan there is more between them than an intense, physical bond? Will Lorcan discover he has more to offer Julie than—his wicked Celtic kiss?

Nick Crocetti is an imposing figure in black leather riding his motorcycle about the town of Rockland. Owner of a bar, The Chief, whispers of criminal dealings and a murky past swirl around him. Dark and brooding, Nick is "the wicked bad" in looks and demeanor.

 Veronica Barnes, leaving a husband from a disastrously quick Las Vegas marriage and her high-paying consulting job, returns home after ten years to follow a lifelong dream and open her own bakery. Despite the mutual physical attraction - and a shared past - Nick and Veronica are wary of each other and have protective fences around their hearts.

 Can they break down the barriers of past heartbreak, or is Veronica just a good girl who longs to rub against "the wicked bad"?

 Sensuality Level: Hot
