Poll Results and Book Blurb

Hello Readers, last week I asked you to vote in a poll to decide what kind of excerpts you liked to read on this blog. You voted and the results are in. Thank you to everyone who voted and commented.

The question was ‘What kind of scenes do you like to read in excerpts?’
The choices were:

·       Intriguing scenes with emotional tension and no love-making

·       Sizzling scenes with sexual tension but no consummation

·       Scorching scenes with full love-making

It was clear most voters chose all three with Intriguing scenes receiving the most votes. The pie chart says it all.

My decision: I’ll continue with a range of scenes in the excerpts and hope that you’ll keep reading.

Coming Soon: Back to Smut Blog fest

From the 2-7 September 11, along with a bunch of other fabulous writers and bloggers I’ll be hosting the Back to Smut blog festival on here. We’ll be having fun and celebrating all things adult romance while the kids go back to school. Yippee! So I hope you’ll make it a date and join me. There’ll also be loads of FREEBIES too. We all love free gifts, right? So mark your calendars.

Next: Book Blurb

There’s no excerpt this week but I have the blurb from my book coming out in December titled His Treasure. It’s a historical romance set in pre-colonial West Africa. This book is the first in a series titled Men of Valor.

You can also read it under My Books tab but here it is.

Angry at being forced to marry a man not of her choosing, Adaku stubbornly shuns her new husband on their wedding night. However, she soon discovers there are worse things than giving into a man whose touch awakens her deepest desires. In a land where fruitfulness is celebrated, she could soon be labeled a barren woman.

Obinna knows there are several ways to tame a rebellious woman. Patience and perseverance are two of them. Adaku is his treasure and he will never let her go. When her fears push her into his arms, will he be able to convince her to stay with him forever by unleashing the passion within her?
I’ll post excerpts from the book closer to the release date once editing is completed.

Come back tomorrow and check out my submission for Romantic Friday Writers. It should be fun. Have a thrusty Thursday y’all!
