THE BLIND CUPID ~Historical/BDSM/Cougar Short story for THE EDGE line
Decadent Publishing release December 14 2012 APPROX 6967 words
This short story for Decadent's Publishing The Edge line, has been reverted to me as per the contract I signed with this publisher. As of Oct 2014, I no longer submit to this publisher.
As of this writing, I checked and it seems to be down everywhere but Barnes and Noble, but I know that vendor takes a while.
This short story spawned the series 'The Blind Cupid" with The Governess and the Beast and The Copper and the Madam as books 2 and 3.
This hot erotic story (needed for The Edge line) has been toned down (heat wise), expanded, revised, and doubled in size and is now around 15,000 words. It is still a short story, so that means the romance progresses quickly. I've been working on it for months, and it will now be released as THE SPINSTER AND MR.GLOVER. Cover art done by Cora Graphics.
A few changes, my hero, Desmond, now has blond hair, I will change it in the other books when I get the rights back next year.
I submitted it for pre-order, the release date will be December 7th on Amazon with other vendors following whenever they upload.
Here is the Blurb: His male beauty moved her. His vulnerability touched her. His past horrified her...
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 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 standing. Can Anne and Desmond cross such a chasm and find mutual desire—or love?
This short story was previously published with a different title. Revised, re-edited, and more than 7500 words added. Heat Level: Very sensual
This is book one of the Blind Cupid series. Book two is The Governess and the Beast. Book three is The Copper and the Madam.
NOTE: You will see listings at Amazon for second-hand print copies of the Blind Cupid Collection, (anthology) This is why I am not a fan of POD (Print on Demand) even when you get the rights back, a print copy is always out there somewhere *sigh*
