Jumping into Book Hooks with “Relative Anonymity” #MFRWHooks #MFRWAuthor

logo book hooksNow that I have a book (books, actually, but the erotic romance one is the one I’m emphasizing in MFRW promotions :)) of my own, I get the pleasure of taking advantage of Marketing for Romance Writers (MFRW) promotional opportunities like Book Hooks! A number of authors participate each week, so please follow the links below my post to check out theirs as well.

This week I’m excerpting six sentences from one of the stories in my erotic romance collection, If… Then, which was released last month from 1001 Nights Press. The collection comprises ten stories—eight previously published and two new—and the official blurb and buy links are below.

From “Relative Anonymity”:

Sometimes looking at her life had felt like looking at scenes from a book: they fit together perfectly, but she almost hadn’t felt inside or a part of them. She and David grew up together, their families were best friends, and they loved each other, but their marriage was like a piece of a puzzle of overall togetherness that the situation required. “They as a couple” had sometimes seemed like no more than a congeniality, a formality to complete things the way they were supposed to be completed. Was it about privacy? Maybe. Carly wasn’t even sure what she meant by that, but she knew that privacy had seemed like a mysterious, elusive concept that occurred in other people’s lives.

If Then for siteBLURB: In these tales of sizzling erotic romance, deep affection and the warmth of familiarity underlie the erotic connection between longtime lovers. “The Plant on the Mantel” explores the unexpected implications of a generations-past affair on a young married couple. “Honey Changes Everything” finds Kim wondering how to lead her husband out of his state of despair upon losing his job; inspiration comes when breakfast in bed serves up more than just pancakes. And “If…” and “…Then” examine what happens when Valerie finds herself intensely attracted to someone other than her boyfriend—and what he does when he finds out.

With two original stories (“Soft and Gray” and “Shattered Angels”) joining the eight previously published tales in this collection, If… Then is a testament to the scorching eroticism that can so seamlessly subsist with long-term romance.
