I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Life was crazy during the holidays, however, I wasn’t idle. You may have noticed the covers for The Great Bedroom and No Exchanges, No Returns have had facelifts. If you haven’t seen their new look, here they are.
I started writing my next Laurie Kellogg novel, which I hope to release this summer. Unfortunately, my alter ego, L.L. insisted she needed to publish Book Two in her Seduction series, first. As always, L.L. went off half-cocked and took what should have been a basic romantic comedy and added a dark, edgy suspense subplot. We fought about this for months because I don’t write romantic suspense.
So once again, we ended up writing a fence-straddling novel with a foot in two different yards, so to speak. She took me places I really didn’t want to go, creating several villains, one of whom is the nymphomaniac, Lily Parsons, who blackmailed Jordan Calder into giving her cousin, Nora, a job in his pharmaceutical lab in Hypnotic Seduction. However, as I may have mentioned before, there’s no reasoning with L.L. She’s a bit of flake.
So here I am today, announcing the release of L.L. Kellogg’s Book Two of the Seduction series, The Naughty Never Die. Despite the edgy subplot, it’s still a Red-hot Romance that’s a Little Naughty and a Lot of Fun!
The Beauty—She’s had enough of her goody-two-shoes life
Since her mother’s untimely death, Josephine Callahan has served as New Jersey’s First Lady. Acting as her father’s official hostess in the governor’s mansion is tantamount to living in a fishbowl, which makes S-E-X extremely difficult. On the brink of a nervous breakdown, frustrated Josie loses her usual good sense along with her cool and lets her assemblyman boyfriend talk her into a romantic Valentine getaway—a secret rendezvous she would never consider if she had a clue someone is trying to kill her.
The Beast—Beneath his scars lurks a hero
A deliberately twisted message—via the governor’s spiteful, assistant—misleads ex Special Forces officer DJ Ryder about the true objective of his freelance assignment. He’s told to, not only track down the governor’s classy daughter and hold her in protective custody, but to also teach her a lesson by letting her believe she’s been kidnapped. When Josie discovers the scarred, but still incredibly sexy badass has played her for a fool, she retaliates by feigning a raging case of Stockholm syndrome, teasing the brute until all he can think of is the ‘hold her’ part of his orders. How can Ryder concentrate on keeping Josie safe when he’s busy avoiding the danger she poses to his heart?
