Tagline: Desperate for a way out. An indecent proposal is exactly what she needs. But can two lovers survive the consequences?
On the verge of financial disaster, Destiny Noir accepts an indecent, but arousing proposal, at Dark Odyssey. The hedonistic club in a mansion along the South Florida coast caters to the rich and powerful, providing private and sexy entertainment to satisfy their clients’ sinful requests. Performing kinky sex shows at private parties should be easy for two lovers, and Darius Logan is her willing partner. The risk to her professional reputation is high, but the money and scorching sex is too good to refuse. This club is just what the couple is looking for. But there are always consequences, especially when their fun and well-paying side job spins out of control.
Amazed by how uninhibited she can be, Destiny is driven by a sensual need aroused by her audience. But when clients begin demanding special favors—slave services on a billionaire’s yacht, then a public ménage at a CEO’s cocktail party, Destiny realizes their arrangement might be too good to be true. When passion becomes an obsession, and a billionaire’s demands get out of control, secrets are revealed and threaten to destroy her—and them—forever. Secret Destiny is book one in a sexy new contemporary romance series Sins of Odyssey. Coming soon: Secret Escort and Secret Sins.
Darius finished his beer and she cast him a glance as he walked toward the exit. Her body surged with hunger. How did that man drive her to such lust? She’d never wanted anyone as much as him. As much as they were sexually compatible, she didn’t know if anything long-term would be in the cards. Other priorities, obligations and career goals got in the way. They had fun times, reckless and amazing sex, a satisfying but frustrating relationship, but not always dependable. She wanted dependable, wanted a future, a family. That lingering pain stabbed at her heart at the loss of her parents. They died too young. Would her life meet the same fate? She must be foolish to think she could have a future with Darius.
She finished her dance and made another round for tips, then told the bartender, Grace, the boss’s wife, she was taking a quick break. She said she needed air and had another outfit in her car.
“Need an escort?” Grace asked. The fortyish brunette wore a bustier and jean skirt tonight and was as attractive as most of the strippers that worked the club. The woman was a lot nicer than her husband.
“No, I’m fine.” She rushed into the ladies’ locker room, where she stripped and slipped into an oversized tee shirt, no underwear or bra, grabbed her keys and ran out the door. She noticed her boss in his office. Thank God.
Hobbling across the gravel parking lot, she cursed herself for not taking the heels off and putting on her sneakers. Darius had parked his pickup camper at the far end of the parking lot. Good for privacy, not good for walking in heels. She wanted to feel his warm skin against hers right now. But ten minutes. What could they do in ten minutes? When she got to his truck, he opened the door and lifted her inside.
The hunger in his eyes was the Darius she knew. Every woman should have an awesome lover like Darius at least once in her life. A man who could pleasure her like no other, but whom she knew would probably never be her husband. And she was fine with that most of the time. Darius was there when she needed him, but commitment didn’t interest him. He’d helped her find a decent used car when her last one died, stood by her during her dad’s funeral arrangements and had taken care of her when she had the flu last year. More than that, he’d cleaned her house, done her laundry and rented DVDs for her to watch while she was sick. After each time he’d helped her, he’d go out of town for the next job and she wouldn’t see him for weeks. That was Darius. “Darius, I only have—”
“Ten minutes. I know.” He yanked her tee shirt over her head. “Don’t talk, listen and let me have you. I’ll watch the time.”
Interview with the Author:
What initially got you interested in writing? I loved, loved to read long before I attempted to write. I always had a book in my hand, had stacks of books in a bookcase my dad made for me and went to the library every week. Yeah, I was that quiet, geek-in-training kid. It’s hard to say exactly when I first got interested in writing my own stories. I think I just started without thinking about. I started writing and published poetry in a literary magazine. Wrote a few articles for magazines, then worked part time for a newspaper. Took creative writing classes, joined some writers groups, then learned how to submit materials to agents and editors.
How did you decide to make the move into being a published author? A creative writing instructor once encouraged me to write a book, but I stuck with short stories and articles for a while. I didn’t think I had enough talent or skills to finish an entire book. After I joined a writers group, I noticed a number of writers who had finished books, submitted them and published. This was back before self-publishing was a reasonable option. I finally decided to pursue publishing with a small press.
What do you want readers to take away from reading your works? Not much more than to entertain and surprise them with a good story. Hopefully, my books will get them coming back for more!
What do you find most rewarding about writing? Creating new worlds, characters and their stories out of the void. I’m so surprised by how ideas just appear from nowhere, or by the simplest prompts like a song, an image, a movie or a fragment of a conversation, even a dream. And it always gives me a thrill when a reader emails me to say how much he/she enjoyed a book. No author ever gets tired of hearing that!
What do you find most challenging about writing? Finding the time, yet not going overboard by doing nothing else but write. Seriously, if I didn’t have a day job, or a darling, supportive hubby—who ‘gets’ what it’s like to be a writer—I’d be a hermit sitting in front of my computer 18 hours a day. Writers need to be dedicated and persistence, but also have a life to have fun and refuel. Otherwise, their stories will become dull. I love to write so it’s hard to step away to have some fun time now and then.
What advice would you give to people want to enter the field? Read a ton of books. Non-fiction books about writing and fiction books. And write a lot. Start writing, take a class. Many community colleges or local writers groups will give classes, workshops and conferences. Check out online too. A screenwriting class was very helpful to me. Especially for plotting and dialogue. The best way to be a great writer is to write! And write a lot.
