The title I’m going with for now: Hurt Me So Good. I’m sure we’ll go through dozens of new ones, but this title says so much about the book. It’s really perfect in a lot of ways, and stays true to the personal structure of Dear Sir, I’m Yours.
I’ve made two complete revision passes through Victor’s book, growing it slightly to 73.5K, a nice, meaty read. I decided to keep the blog idea and added a few crucial posts to the story, similar to Rae’s letters to Conn. The blog plays a crucial part in the external storyline, so I thought it fit, and it let me mix in some humor and layers of character.
In the mix of revising Return to Shanhasson and the Maya story, I forgot how much I love this book. Whew, baby, does Victor smolder. Shiloh is unlike ANY heroine I have ever written before and I love her to pieces. I wish I knew her in real life. Sometimes I had to close my eyes in order to type her dialogue because she takes great pride in telling Victor exactly what she wants in brutal, dirty detail. *snickers*
And Victor, well. Let’s just say even Gregar is saluting him with his rahke.
All that remains is the synopsis, and a few beta reads if anyone is so inclined. My usual warnings and caveats: my editor hasn’t gotten it yet and things may change after she makes her edit requests. I don’t want a critique — just a read and judgment of enjoyment factor, although if you catch a typo, I’ll be ever grateful.
This book is erotic romance–including BDSM, rough language, and the use of a riding crop–and NOT for the faint of heart. If you’re still interested, e-mail me. I reserve the right to decline if we’re not a good fit or if I’ve already received enough offers. I’ll trade full reads with writers and give a final electronic copy to readers, as well as thank you in the dedication.
