Thanks for stepping by. Today is my turn in the Naughty Edition Reviews PrideBlogfest. Don't forget to visit their site when you're done here - there are lots of great prizes to be won, including an e-reader!
One of those prizes is a pdf-copy of my latest release, Fantasy for Sale*. This emotional story about Cam, a hooker with a dark past, and Nate, the wonderful, loving and patient man who falls for him has been a challenge for me to write. While it started out as one of my earliest attempts at writing, it took me over two years to finish it, with long periods of inspirational flat lines in between. I loved the story, and had a fairly good idea of where it was going, which is more than can be said about most of my books, but it just wouldn't flow. Then, one cold day at the end of last year, I decided to give it one more try and suddenly I realised what was wrong with it. The narrator's perspective.
You see, up until then, I used to write all my books in third-person POV and it worked well for me, but with Fantasy for Sale, it just didn't. Nate's voice was a lot more personal, more intimate, and I needed to let him tell the story. I think he did a great job, so please let me introduce you to it:
Fantasy for Sale
What's the price of reality when a fantasy is for sale?
Cam is young, sinfully sexy and willing to play without limits, a combination which makes him a fantasy turned to flesh for men and women alike - and he's for sale.
Nate is curious when it comes to carnal delights but hasn't found the right man to explore his desires with.
When a friend buys Nate a few hours of pleasure with Cam, it's not much of a surprise that Nate ends up intrigued. He keeps coming back for more and the attraction between them appears to be mutual but while Nate finds himself falling for the sexy hooker, Cam makes no secret of the fact that for him, sex is just a job.
Determined to win him over, Nathan tries to show him that sex is about more than physical satisfaction but Cam's walls seem impenetrable until a dramatic event forces him to reveal some of his secrets and Nate begins to understand that Cam pays more than just the price for the reality behind the fantasy.
Fantasy for Sale becomes available from all big distributors on June 28th
