Reclaiming the Edge Tour

Blurb:
The sexual journey of Dalton, Cade and Erin begins in Ragged Edge. You won’t want to miss the beginning of their lusty connection!

It isn’t a birthday celebration without a little pain to chase the pleasure—at least according to Dalton and Cade, the two men who stole Erin’s heart. Relationships are complicated and Erin has been retreating—both emotionally and physically—from her lovers. Pushed away for reasons they don’t understand, and determined to erode her resistance, the men devise a wicked plan. They intend to use two very special gifts and one captivating night to reclaim her submission. But Erin’s trip to subspace extracts a heart-wrenching confession that threatens to rip the triad apart forever.


Warning: Contains a well-trained, dirty-talking submissive who succumbs to the commands of her Master, custom nipple clamps, tongue wagging oral sex, a well-deserved punishment with a butt plug, men who share more than a few heart-racing kisses and a custom-made-work-of-art sex chair that shows this M/M/F triad just how powerful their passion for one another is. And that’s just chapter one.


Guest Post:
I’m the kind of author who believes reviews are for readers more so than they are for me. Sort of like how reviews about restaurants are for customers. Don’t get me wrong, I love to see that one of my books affected someone enough to take the time to write a review, be that review good or bad. They had some kind of emotion reaction and I totally appreciate the investment of time and energy writing a review takes! So what do I do about a negative review of one of my books?

The answer is simple: Nothing

An author can spend a lot of time and energy getting upset about a negative review. And let’s face it, every author has gotten a negative review. There isn’t an author on the planet who hasn’t received a negative review of some kind. The trick is learning that the energy spent fretting over a negative review can be better spent actually writing. Since I have a day job still, I have precious little time to write. That means I’ve chosen to spend my time focusing my energy on doing something I love instead.

I don’t know about other authors, but I don’t have time to go trolling the internet hunting down reviewers who found something about one of my books that they didn’t like (don’t laugh, I’ve watched it happen). Before my first book was ever published, I knew not everyone was going to identify with my characters, like the fact I wrote different genres/levels of heat, or even like my “author voice”. The beauty of being individuals is that we are all allowed to have an opinion about what we like and what we don’t.

The bottom line is also simple: You can’t make everyone happy. Make yourself happy instead.


Excerpt:
“I haven’t seen that look in your eyes in a very, very long time.” Dalton stepped out of the shadows, his fingers capturing her chin to tilt her face to accommodate for their vast height difference. His lips brushed lightly against hers. “I’ve missed it.”

His arresting gray eyes had always been something she got lost in, especially when he looked as if he could devour her at any moment. The pleasurable thought did a lazy slide low in her gut.

Licking her lips, she reminded herself why she’d come here. “You’re late.”

“Seeing you look that way was totally worth it.” Dalton smiled, his fingers skimming against her forehead as he brushed her long fall of strawberry-blonde bangs out of the way.

His warm lips pressed against her skin before he gathered her close to his body. She’d always felt so tiny in his arms, his muscular bulk nearly overwhelming. Trapped in his embrace, she’d once been so safe and secure, as if nothing could touch her because she was invincible.

  4. I agree, no need to worry about bad reviews. Better to listen to your characters. Not everyone likes the same things. Good luck.

  7. I always wondered what authors did about negative reviews. I haven't given any, but whenever I have anything even remotely bad to say, I have had some nasty emails.

  8. I think I would take a less than positive review very badly. It's refreshing to see your approach.
