Off the Shelf and A French Affair Now Available in Print!
If you still like to hold a print copy in your mitts, instead of an eReader, then a) you’re not alone, and b) I’ve got good news for you. Xcite Books are putting a bunch of their titles out in print on demand, and two of mine have been selected. My erotic romance novellas Off the Shelf and A French Affair are now available in print and eBook format.
Here’s a reminder of what they’re all about, in case you’ve forgotten.
At 35, travel writer Annalise is fed up with insensitive comments about being left on the shelf. It’s not as if she doesn’t want a man, but her busy career doesn’t leave her much time for relationships. Sexy liaisons with passing acquaintances give Annalise physical satisfaction, but she needs more than that. She wants a man who will satisfy her mind as well as her body. But where will she find someone like that? It seems Annalise may be in luck when a new member of staff starts working in the bookshop at the airport she regularly travels through. Damien appears to tick all the boxes; he’s gorgeous, funny and intelligent, and he shares Annalise’s love of books and travel. The trouble is, Damien’s shy and Annalise is terrified of rejection. Can they overcome their fears and admit their feelings, or are they doomed to remain on the shelf?
This title was a nominee for The Romance Reviews Best Book of 2012, and has had some truly awesome reviews.
Sydney Tyler is renting a barn conversion in Northern France, planning to spend the fortnight getting some words down on her novel. Unfortunately, construction work in the other half of the building puts an end to her peace and quiet. Genuinely upset that the builders are going to disturb her, the property’s handsome English owner, Harry Bay, offers to make it up to her. He’s a little flirtatious, and after spotting his wedding ring, Sydney keeps him at arm’s length. Sexy as he is, she has no intention of getting involved with a married man. But when Sydney learns the truth about Harry, will their mutual attraction spur them on to work through their emotional baggage and make this more than just a French affair?
This is a fairly new book, so it’s only had one review so far – but it’s a good one!
“…a sweet romance between two people wanting a new start after being hurt, but with lots of lovemaking, not just sex. A good book for a rainy afternoon or for lying on the beach, (not to mention, if you might be on your way to Paris in the springtime!).” 4.5 out of 5, Manic Readers
You’ll probably have to wait a tad longer than normal to get these books in paperback as they have to be printed and whatnot, but I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait to add them to your romance collection 🙂
