Interracial Romance for the Woman of Discriminating Tastes (bw/wm)

I was quoted the other day as saying that my books were for women of discriminating tastes. And I really feel as though that statement is accurate. The reason that I feel that this statement is accurate is because every once in a while I take a look at the profiles of the women on social media who support my work (ok, I stalk them). And I can really say is wow. They are amazing women doing amazing things all over the entire world, and they love my work. So it must be edifying in some way. And to be edifying to women who are basically conquers in their own right is like the self-esteem of a cook who feeds chef Ramsey (not to mention that life is very much like Hell’s Kitchen).

These women are mothers, grandmothers, single feisty women, doctors, lawyers, business owners, nurses and administrative giants, scientists, activists…I could go on. The point is that I realize that there is a big difference between knowing your market (which in bw/wm books is basically spelled out for you) and knowing your market, which is me trolling the social media sites to read posts and celebrate birthdays, new cars and even new relationships with my readers. So, I’m proud to say it again. I am an author of interracial romance for women of discriminating tastes

These women are educated, driven, successful warriors in their own right and they still like a little romance in their lives. I’m happy to provide the entertainment.

Excerpt from Highness

In Michael’s very privileged life, he had had the opportunity to visit every continent in the world, travel every ocean; he had sat with royalty from over fifty countries and dined at their personal tables; he had stood on battle fields and observed destruction and victory; he had drunk champaign 8,850 meters above sea level atop Mount Everest; he had played volley ball with a sheik on sun bleached sand with sun bleached beauties and charted a $4.8 billion yacht with a Malaysian general, but never once had he had the pleasure of visiting a Super Wal-Mart.

This dynamic retailer was packed with everything from sugar cookies and radio tires to double-barrel shotguns – all in one very convenient location, all reasonable priced, all on sale twenty-four hours a day and all under devil-awful florescent lights.  This place was so liked by Americans until it only closed on Christmas Day.

And he could see why.

He loved this place too.

The only thing he didn’t love was having to wait in line like the rest of the working-class stiffs.  One almost needed to buy a book to bide the time away.  How could you have ten lines and only two workers?  The idea perplexed him.

As he passed by the many families scurrying about the large store in deep conversation or maneuvering with their cell phones stuck to their faces and hands, he found himself completely entertained by the varying wardrobes, the deep southern drawls and overall informality of the place.

To his amazement, he was knee deep in common life.  He saw sagging pants, too tight skirts, shorts that were more like briefs, women wearing way too much makeup, old women with bad wigs, and kids with offensively snotty noses.  So not only could one get everything that was on their shopping list, they could also get a communicable disease.

      Genius. 

Next Book From Latrivia: Highness

Highness

Prince Michael has always been England’s bad boy. Handsome, confident and completely untraditional, many of his antics garnered front-page news and international headlines over the years.  However, once he gets engaged to a woman of note, he finally become a man that his mother, The Queen of England, can be proud of.  Too bad, the world wind romance is short lived.

Catastrophe: After calling off the wedding to Thalia, his brother Richard convinces him to get out of the public eye and covertly go to the United States for a while where he hopes that Michael will gain a little more respect for his title and position by living as a commoner, and so the media won’t keep catching him in other women’s beds.  To make the situation a little more discrete, they pick the small town of Hernando, Mississippi for their experiment.  Normally, Michael would have considered the entire proposal laughable, but the constant fallout from the breakup make what started out as a preposterous suggestion a pliable solution.

Hope Daniels is on top of the world. Working on a collection of art to display in a few months after signing a major deal, she feverishly is working toward her deadline, when suddenly disaster strikes.  After being in a head-on collision with a drunk driver, she is left temporarily blind and completely alone. With no one to help take care of her, her agent pushes her to hire someone to help her around the house until her sight comes back.  After the most ridiculous interview ever, she finally agrees to hire handyman, Beau Michaels, not knowing that her help is actually the royal variety.

Blessing:  Michael’s never been understood, mostly because his beauty and title have always gotten in the way of any sincere connection with a woman, but with Hope blind to his looks and unaware of his true status, he is forced to be himself for the first time ever.

With his majesty waiting on Hope hand and foot, and Hope feeding Michael’s soul with more than pomp and circumstance, their connection becomes electric.

Only what happens when she can see again and he finally sees what he wants in life?
