She proposes a wager to Hawk. Spend a month in her bed and if he ends up begging for more, she wins her money back. But Hawk wants more than a month, and he’ll take Bianca to her breaking point in order to win her love, as well as her body.

He strikes a dangerous bargain with her. he’ll search for her sister during the day, but at night Juliana belongs to him in every way. But Landon may not be able to purge his desire for Juliana as easily as he thinks. Not when the fire of the love they once shared begins to be rekindled with every touch.
Raphael Sinclair is the most debauched of rakes and rogues. When he wants something he takes it, whether it be revenge or a woman. And now he wants both. Evelyn Greville’s father is Sin’s worst enemy. And what better way to purge a stunning desire for the innocent miss and ruin her father than to have her in every wicked way his clever mind can imagine. But Evelyn is not as innocent as she seems… and he may be the one conquered by Sin’s Mistress.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Erotic romance is a delicate balance. I need to make the story super sexy, but not sacrifice plot or character. Balancing those things is a challenge and I love it.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write, write, write. Really learn your craft. And don’t give up.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Sin was a series of three novellas published individually by a now-defunct press. When I saw people were selling those books for outlandish prices online, I decided to package them together for something more reasonable. Now we’ve put a new cover on and are celebrating with a sale price!
