The revealing trilogy of romance and polyamory continues! Their secret is out, and it's open season on Amy and Bryce's decision to add a third person to their marriage.
Business associates, friends, and family all condemn their choice to live and love in a polyamorous relationship with Raine, a FemDom. All the talking in the world can't convince their critics that Amy and Bryce's marriage is rock solid, and that there are no secrets between them. Not content with mere talk, others begin to meddle to undermine Bryce's business and marriage. Even Raine's Master thinks she's making a huge mistake.
With no allies, and scorn coming from every direction, love and determination must lead Amy, Bryce, and Raine through love's storm. Their journey began in Razor: Desire's Edge and continues in Razor: Love's Reflection.
She knew their unusual arrangement could end anytime. Every now and then, she'd lay awake playing devil's advocate about their situation. A stream of what-if scenarios played out in her mind. The stakes were high, and sometimes her imaginings ended badly.
Amy and Bryce's marriage is still rock-solid. They'd be fine without me around. I'd be left with some amazing memories and little else.
Sometimes, she allowed herself to have a happily ever after ending. The three of them would achieve a sort of emotional equality. In this dream, the legal boundaries of marriage remained between Bryce and Amy, but Raine was a second wife in every other sense of the word. She and Amy would still have a loving, intimate relationship, too.
Could it happen?
The concept of that kind of love and family had never occurred to her before all this began. Even what they had right now was beyond her wildest dreams.
But is that Cinderella ending out of reach?
I'm sure KB is lurking somewhere, so thanks for hosting us. It's all sunshine and lollipops. LOL Well, most of the time it is. We met through a mutual publishing company. Over time, we became friends. We never talked about writing together, but when the opportunity came up we decided to make it work. Since we both have dominant personalities, originally we were both vying for the writing steering wheel. That wouldn't work well if we were going to be successful. So, we established some clear rules about how we work together. Respecting each other is the center of our relationship. That's not to say we haven't ever gotten into a *cough* creative tiff or had a meltdown, but we're friends first and maintaining that relationship is important to both of us. It's also kind of awkward at times since we are opposite genders, and very married to other people. Getting through planning the love scenes came make us both giggle like high school teens. Very weird behavior for erotic romance writers, but I think it's charming that we respect each other and this is one way to show it.
What was the inspiration for the Razor Trilogy?
We were trying to outwit each other in a little creative writing exchange. Did I mention we both have strong authorial egos? Umm yeah. Anyway, eventually we realized we might have stumbled upon a very cool premise for a book. It took us awhile to figure out how to create the personalities of our trio, and do some research about polyamorous people, but eventually, Desire's Edge was written. Love's Storm is the second book, and we're planning to write Love's Reflection this fall.
Are there any genres you won’t read or write in? Why?
Horror/zombie stuff. I don't like creepy movies or books. KB has written a couple of zombie/horror stories, and I got through one of them. The others? Nope. I don't enjoy being scared or feeling repulsed. We might be best friends, but if the zombies are chasing us, I'm tripping you. Interestingly, my favorite genre to read is crime/police fiction and non-fiction. I'm fascinated by the criminal mind, but I like the comfort of knowing the cops are after them…not me.
I wrote my first New Adult book earlier this year, and just had it annotated. So, now I need to go through that and make what changes I deem necessary to I Am Jolene. Then, I'm on the hunt for a publisher. I'm also about half finished with writing the first draft of a gay romance entitled Love on the Airwaves. I'd planned to have that done earlier this summer, but real life has really been interfering! I have the edits on my desk for the expanded version of The 18th Floor. I added about 6,000 words to that novella to give the two antagonists more depth and add angst to those relationships with Alexa and Sebastian. Oh, and I might have added another love scene. ;-) As soon as I can get through the edits, I'm sure Sizzler Editions will put the book out. I believe the first release is supposed to be print. My bookshelf grows!
All right, now for some totally random, fun questions.
Favorite color? Green
Favorite movie? Made of Honor
Book that inspired you to become an author? No book, but the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, inspired my debut series.
All right, you have one superpower. What is it? I want to fly like an eagle.
You can have dinner with any 3 people, dead, alive, fictitious, etc. Who are they? Pope John Paul II, Tiger Woods, and Bill Clinton.
Last question: Which of your characters are you most like and how/why?
Jolene from I Am Jolene. She's tough as nails and has had a life filled with horrible experiences. Still, she chooses not to be a bitch with a chip on her shoulder. She wants to make something of herself that's loving and peaceful. That's what my life has been like, but I want to be clear, this book is not autobiographical.
That’s all from me, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Born and bred Long Islander, I grew up working class poor. There were few escapes for me:
The beach, the bay and books. I fell in love with all three.
As I grew older, I became a voracious reader. The natural evolutionary process lead me to write. I filled countless marble composition notebooks with my fevered scribblings. Eventually, with the aid of modern technology, namely the PC, Microsoft Word and the internet, I was blessed to find an exceptional interactive writing forum. For years I wrote in every conceivable genre and sub-genre.
While I am a member of the Thin Blue Line at night, during the day I create stories of erotic romance and dark horror. One day, I will marry the two successfully. The results, I hope, will be bloody sexy!
