It's Always a Good Feeling

When a book you've slaved over, loved, hated, rewritten, finally had an Aha! moment and actually turned it into a book you loved, your publisher buys it, releases it, and THEN you get a review that knocks your socks off. That's what happened with my Latest full length erotic romantic intrigue, Do You Trust Me. I had to peel myself off the ceiling when I looked online yesterday and discovered Romantic Times Book Reviews had given it 4 1/2 stars. (Still doing the Happy Dance!).

Here's what they had to say about it:

This thriller grabs you from the first paragraph and doesn't let go until the satisfying ending. Espionage coupled with BDSM makes for one titillating ride. Secondary characters enhance the action and add to the suspense.
Summary: The locket is the key. Rina's brother gives it to her before he disappears, telling her she will know who she can depend on when the time comes. McCall is assigned to guard Rina and is amazed when she submits to his dominant bedroom games. Although Rina commits body and soul, she's reluctant to reveal her secret -- even though national security depends on it.

And just for y'all, here's a little taste of Do You Trust Me?

What came next stunned her, freezing her in place. McCall put his wine glass down on the counter, reached for her and brushed his lips against hers. Just a brief contact but it seared her down to her toes. Her bones felt as if they were melting and she could have sworn the ground shifted beneath her feet.
Move, her inner voice commanded, but not one of her muscles would obey.
McCall traced the seam of her lips with his tongue, an artist’s stroke painting the surface. A tiny sound whispered from her mouth. As if it was a signal he was waiting for, he captured her in a kiss so hot it burned her lips. His hands cupped her face, holding her head in place, while he fed on her, his tongue pressing inside and tasting the texture of her flesh.
She gripped his wrists but not to pull them away. She couldn’t have broken the kiss if someone paid her to.
Time stood still while he devoured every corner of her mouth, his fingers lean and hot against her cheeks. When he lifted his head his silver eyes had darkened almost to black.
Rina felt dazed and weak.
He studied her face, his breathing uneven. “Two choices. Either tell me to leave or tell me where your bedroom is.”
She had trouble getting the words out. “Upstairs. Last door on the right.”
Do you Trust Me is available at The Wild Rose Press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Fictionwise and All Romance EBooks.
