New Release – The Devil’s Doorbell


A woman’s pleasure is a dangerous thing. A primal appetite that, once awakened, can never be sated. A secret that gives power to those who know it. A magic that, once unleashed, can never be contained.

Some say the clitoris is the devil’s doorbell, set to summon him forth at the merest touch…

It’s time to ring the bell.

Here are seven tales of sexual empowerment and erotic defiance, featuring the hottest storytellers of erotic fiction.

In the Garden, by Anne Calhoun

Forbidden fruit is the most delicious…

A wedding in the bucolic English countryside offers Kelsey ripe temptation in the form of a hot groomsman, Julian. Will the illicit attraction satisfy an old craving or stoke a new desire?

Exact Warm Unholy, by Jeffe Kennedy

Tonight my name is Mary…

Or is it? Sometimes she’s Tiffany or Syd or Bobbi. But whatever face she wears, she returns to the same bar, to find a new man and seduce him, safe in the knowledge that no one will recognize her. Until one man does.

Red Leather, by Delphine Dryden

Some activities are definitely not safe for work.

Maggie’s sadness over being dumped quickly turns to relief and excitement when she discovers a new freedom…a new Maggie she could have never been with her ex. Combine New Maggie with Tim the Hot Mailroom Guy and an unexpected vibrator…and the office supply room door becomes the portal to a world of devilish fun.

Drowning on Dry Land, by Megan Hart

Some doors stay open until you close them.

Moving on from a past love, Bette Douglas has discovered a whole new world of satisfaction and contentment with her boy Damian…but when the past comes knocking, Bette’s decision to answer it could change everything.

Devil in the Dark, by Christine d’Abo

When developer Shona needs to beta test her new app – The Devil’s Doorbell – she goes out on the prowl for a man who will fulfil her wildest fantasies – oral sex in public. What could possibly go wrong when she finds her devil in the dark?

London Calling, by Megan Mulry

“Face-sitter wanted, in exchange for free accommodation in Mayfair.” -Craigslist

She hadn’t planned on being quite so adventurous when she decided to spend the year in London, but when she read the ad, she couldn’t resist.

We Are All Found Things, by M. O’Keefe

Rennie’s trying to forget her past; her mysterious new tenant is trying to keep his past a secret. But when Rennie finds out the truth about Luka she discovers as much about herself as she does her innocent lover.

“Each tale is a delight and worth the read.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

“In a world that works hard at limiting women’s choices through draconian laws and social pressures this collection of stories is different. The women in these stories are not waiting around for someone to show up and show them a good time. Nope. These women are going for it. Erotica featuring empowered women? Bring it.” –Writing While Distracted

“If you’re in the mood to spice things up, all you need to do is pick up this anthology and get ready for a fun-filled ride!” –Under the Covers

“[T]his book was hot AND it was damn good, too! . . . [A] lot of fun to read. I would definitely recommend this book!” –Rakes of Romance

“This was a unique historical romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. Mulry turns up the heat on your typical novel of the genre and adds in elements that make it stand out, all the while showing it in a historical context.” –Pure Jonel

Release day!

So excited! BOUND WITH LOVE is out today!


This is the third story in my ‘Regency Reimagined’ historical world, after BOUND TO BE A BRIDE and BOUND TO BE A GROOM. In some ways, this book is much tamer than the previous two, at least in terms of ambitious sexual antics (there are no kinky four ways, for example), but the emotional complications run deep and I hope readers will be equally engaged.

Later this summer, the final installments will be released (and ambitious sexual antics will resume!), with BOUND WITH PASSION in July and BOUND WITH HONOR in August. Here are the delectable covers from L.C. Chase:

BoundWithPassion_500x750     BoundWithHonor_500x750

All of these books are at times angsty and sweet, dark and lighthearted and—regardless of heat level or gender pairing—all of them explore the social and sexual bonds that forge the characters.

I really loved writing these stories and I hope you love reading them!

Inspiring April

Wow! Just realized I haven’t posted anything on the blog in ages. Lots has been going on over the past few months, but much of it is of the exciting-but-I-can’t-talk-about-it variety—so that’s not much fun for anyone. Suffice it to say, I have a wonderful new project that has been incredibly enlightening.

In other inspiring news, I went to New York City last week and attended the Women in the World conference. I’m still letting all of the information percolate (and will probably be percolating about it for the rest of my life). The morning panels I attended focused on some of the most horrible atrocities that are being perpetrated against girls and women today—and the incredible, heroic women who are making it their life’s work to fight the tide of gender violence: Obiageli Ezekwesili in Nigeria, Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe in Uganda, Vian Dakheel Saeed in Iraq, and Sunitha Krishnan in India.

Then there was Helen Mirren.

I never thought I was really prone to hero worship or cults of personality, but lately I think I do in fact idolize Helen Mirren. Her combination of independence, talent, endurance, humor, and sexuality just seems so…idolizable. In real life, she did not disappoint. You can watch her entire delightful interview with Tina Brown here.

In fun book news, Bound to Be a Groom was nominated for a 2014 Best Bisexual Erotica award! Meanwhile, Bound with Love comes out on June 1—and has already received a lovely review from Publishers Weekly. Lastly, I will be in Dallas for the annual Romantic Times Booklovers Convention, May 11-17, and look forward to all the panels and parties that will take place there. If you are attending, please join me at the Giant Book Fair or any of the following events, listed here.

I think that’s about it for now. Hope you are all enjoying a splendid spring!

So much to be happy about!

Happy March, everyone!

Yesterday was my birthday and I’ve been celebrating in the usual way—with lots of food and books. As always, you can see what I’ve been reading over on my Pinterest board. And tonight I’ll be eating at Café Boulud in Palm Beach, so I’ve got the food part covered. Life is good!

Today, three of my favorite writer-friends have books coming out, and I thought I’d share them with you (click on titles for buy-links):

THE LIST by Anne Calhoun is an intense love story set in New York City and England. I am very good friends with the author, and she shared a lot of the character development with me during many conversations we had over many months. That said, I was not a critique partner or involved in the actual nuts-and-bolts of the book, so I think I can be fairly objective when I say it is a beautifully written, subtly rendered romance. Enjoy!

NOTHING LIKE PARIS by Amy Jo Cousins is the next in AJ’s ‘Bend or Break’ series. I really enjoyed the first book in this world, OFF CAMPUS, for its character-driven narrative, and the way AJ weaves larger issues of LGBT identity and gender politics into a really intimate NA story. Can’t wait to read!

CHASING ME by Jennifer Probst. I’m excited for the next installment in Jen’s ‘Sex on the Beach’ series, as this young couple settles into their new life in Chicago. Bring the sexy!

Happy reading (and eating)!


Happy February of Love!

I still marvel that I used to blog with any regular frequency…lately it seems like such a novelty, like, “Oh! Hey! I could blog about that!” So here’s the latest:

1. I will be in Washington, DC, next week for a couple of days. Full details in last month’s blog post (below). I haven’t been there in about ten years—any recommendations for something new and different I should see?

2. I am working furiously on a ghostwriting project that has me researching tons of different things, but most recently American history in the 1970s. As part of my research, I watched a few documentaries (all available on Netflix) which I totally recommend: The Source Family; Pumping Iron; and Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Wander. At first I was just casting about for a general “feel” of the 1970s, and I thought these three would offer a nice variety. And then the themes all kind of wove together: the driving force of individuals with compelling personalities; the desire for an understanding of what makes us “human”; and something that I can’t quite put my finger on, but that has to do with this human insistence to “seek” which often manifests itself through manipulation and control—whether it be through art, fashion, spirituality, or our own bodies. So, butterflies and zebras as usual here in my brain lol!

3. What are you reading? I’ve been bingeing on Harlequin Presents and Victoria Dahl, and I’m super excited my friend and fun-fab writer Mira Lyn Kelly‘s next book, TOUCH & GO, comes out Feb. 17:

Touch_and_Go_Quote_CoverMira has kindly offered to give away two (2) advance ebooks to my readers *waves to Mom*. Please leave a quick comment about how amazing it is that Mira has four young kids and a husband and a dog and still finds time to write lots of books and bake lots of brownies (and do all that abdominal research for her heroes). I’ll pick two winners and send you the NetGalley coupon code next week. Also, the first book in this series, TRUTH OR DARE, is on sale right now for 99c, so you should grab it.

4. Lots of other fun stuff has been happening, but I can’t remember much because I’m focused on either writing or trying to cut carbohydrates out of my diet (which has me feeling like Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon):

Hiccup-Toothless-how-to-train-your-dragon-9626254-1920-8165. In unrelated news, I love this Polish expression, “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” It’s basically Codependent No More—but with monkeys, which is so much better—and I love this graphic: 


6. Lastly, what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? I hope it involves lots of kissing!

Washington, DC – February 10-11, 2015

Hi everyone,

There are some exciting romance-related events happening in Washington, DC, in a few weeks. I can’t wait to connect with lots of readers and writers and friends while I’m in town. Here’s what’s happening:

Tuesday, February 10 – 6:30 – 9:30 pm – Love Between the Covers (movie screening)

Wednesday, February 11 – 9:00 am – 5:00 pm – What is Love? Romance Fiction in the Digital Age (conference)

Wednesday, February 11 – 5:30 – 7:30 pm – After the conference, Elisabeth Lane (creator, curator, and chef of the fabulous blog Cooking Up Romance) has staked out Capitol Lounge for all of us to meet up. Please join us there!


Happy Almost New Year!

Tonight on Facebook, I am jointing a few author friends to say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015. Please stop by and meet Anne Calhoun, Tessa Dare, Jeffe Kennedy, Miranda Neville, and Maisey Yates. Several of these authors also have new releases out today, so we will be giving away lots of prizes (including a sparkly new Kindle) and probably chatting about everything from dukes to dominance to desert sheikhs. Here is the link: Facebook Party

Meanwhile, I’m feeling sort of nostalgic. It’s been a busy, productive twelve months in my writing life: R IS FOR REBEL came out in February, BOUND TO BE A GROOM came out in April, and ROULETTE came out in December. I went to conferences and author meet-ups in New Orleans and Boston and New York. I got to spend time with some of my favorite people and I am finally starting to realize that even though the years feel like they pass in a blink, friendships deepen and bonds strengthen over time, not in a blink. On the home front, no one died! YAY! I know that sounds morbid or crass or whatever, but the truth is, the past few years have been pretty hair-raising and 2014 was slightly less hair-raising in the death department. Plenty of hiccups, but no cancer in the house. Just for today!

Here’s hoping you are all able to find a few things to be grateful for in 2014, and that you are looking forward to a peaceful and happy 2015!

Roulette is here!

Whoops! So of course I totally forgot to send out a newsletter or post a blog on ROULETTE’s release day, because that would have been way too organized! I guess I was busy getting all fluttery about the nice reviews and reader responses that started to roll in and *sigh* it was all quite wonderful. Here are some of the highlights:

Elisabeth Lane has this fabulous blog where she creates meals that tie in with romance novel reviews. I love her cooking and photography and her insights. She had this to say about Rome: “His first two scenes in the book are utter perfection, first in a confrontational phone call with Miki about business dealings he’d had with her father and then again when they finally meet in person.” Link here: Cooking Up Romance

Next there was this review at Heroes & Heartbreakers that nearly blew my socks off because of how much the reviewer focused on details that, as a writer, sometimes feel superfluous or indulgent. It was incredibly gratifying. “Every little thing that you don’t usually pay attention to is perfect…I’m so glad I read Roulette, and I already know I’ll be re-reading it.” Link here: Heroes & Heartbreakers

Then the day rounded out with a bang when ROULETTE was listed in The Washington Post by Sarah MacLean as one of the “Best new romance novels for December.” This made me double-crazy-happy because 1) duh, The. Washington. Post. and 2) Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical romance writers, so I got all blushy and weird thinking about her reading my book and actually liking it. Link here: The Washington Post

So that’s what other people are saying. Meanwhile, I’ve been chatting up a storm about ROULETTE on various blogs. You can find me jawing about playboys, steamy contemporary romances, adventurous women, and all manner of mayhem at the following sites:

The Romance Reader’s Guide to Recognizing a Playboy (Herding Cats, Burning Soup)

Slow burn to scorching: Why we love contemporaries (USA Today)

How to Spot a Modern Day Playboy (Night Owl Reviews)

Miki’s Bucket List for the Adventurous Woman (Fresh Fiction)

Finally, if you’ve already finished ROULETTE and are looking for something new, here’s what I’ve been reading and loving lately:

Historical Romance:

Christmas in the Duke’s Arms by Grace Burrowes, Miranda Neville, Carolyn Jewel, Shana Galen

Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover by Sarah MacLean

Erotica/Contemporary Romance:

Personal Geography by Tamsen Parker

Callie, Unwrapped by Amy Jo Cousins


Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson
