COVER REVEAL: The Spinster and Mr. Glover by @KarynGerrard #Historical #ComingSoon #BlindCupidSeries

Historical/Victorian/Short Story
KG Publishing
14,995 words
Release date: December 2015 

Blurb: Anne Sommer, a spinster firmly on the shelf, does the unthinkable. She hires a man from the Blind Cupid brothel for a night of scandalous pleasure. Anne wants the sensual memories to keep her company in the lonely years ahead. However, she did not expect the young man who showed up at her door to move her in ways she never imagined.

Desmond Glover gives sexual gratification—for a price. An orphan whose childhood was mired in scandal and poverty, Desmond has learned to close off his emotions with regard to his occupation. He did not count on a lonely spinster to awaken his hidden passion.

Not only do the years separate them, but so do their social standings. Can Anne and Desmond cross such a chasm and find mutual desire---or love?

This was previously published with a different title. Revised, re-edited, and more than 7000 words added.

Book one of the Blind Cupid series. Book two is The Governess and the Beast. Book three is The Copper and the Madam.

Here's the dirt. The Blind Cupid was a short story for Decadent Publishing's The Edge line, where the story had to be hot and no more than 7000 words. It was released December 2012. Just want to thank Decadent Publishing for responding to rights reversal requests in a positive and professional manner.

I will be re-releasing The Blind Cupid as THE SPINSTER AND MR. GLOVER and the story is now 14,000+ words. I also dialled back the heat a notch or two (or three!) as the story for The Edge line had to be erotica. I also expanded the plot and characters.

I know I have written more than a few stories about a couple caught in strange circumstances and falling in love during a short period of time, but the situation fascinates me. Two unlikely people, alone, emotions are intense, desire even more so. Yes, they fall in love quickly, but isn't a lot of romance based in fantasy? Besides, though rare, people in real life can fall in love at first sight, so why not my hero and heroine? :)

The Spinster and Mr. Glover will be released by my own KG Publishing and since it is book one of The Blind Cupid series, it will be released to all relevant vendors since book 2 and 3 are still out there. I will be charging 99 cents. (For 14,000 words, more than reasonable)

I am able to get back the rights to The Governess and the Beast (book 2) next spring. Book 3 The Copper and the Madam next fall. I am actually enjoying revisiting these old stories. Like visiting an old, dear friend.

I will have a more firm release date soon.
