Happy Thanksgiving week!
I’m back with the first proper chapter of Gemma and Terry’s novella, Waterlocked. I was blown away by your amazing response to the prologue. The website hit its all-time high for traffic AND I got some fantastic suggestions for the boat’s name. In the end, I could only pick one, so I decided on Conquest, which was a suggestion from reader, Katie Rose. Thanks Katie! Conquest is simple, direct, and somehow very… British. Mostly, it just suits Terry as he’s a bit of a conqueror. The real question is will he be able to conquer Gemma’s heart? (Too cheesy?) It won’t show up for a couple chapters, but you’ll see it, I promise.
Warning: This chapter is not PG. Actually, this novella is not PG. Terry and Gemma have a very passionate relationship, so if more explicit scenes are not your thing, feel free to skip this story. But please don’t read and then complain that there’s too much sex. Every couple I’ve written, every relationship and story is different. This is Terry and Gemma’s story. Honestly, in pretty much all my books I get an equal number of readers saying there’s too much sex and not enough sex. I know it’s a personal thing. This is the way I write, so please respect that.
Fun news at the end of the chapter: For everyone who leaves a comment, you’ll be entered to win a signed paperback of any one of my books. The contest IS open to international readers, so don’t let that stop you. (I love my international readers!) The contest will run through the end of the holiday weekend; I’ll choose a winner on Sunday, November 25, 2012.
Finally, have a wonderful Thanksgiving week to all my American readers! And for my international ones, find something this week to be thankful for and express that. A habit of gratitude is never a bad thing.
As for me? I am thankful for many things, not least of all is YOU, my amazing readers. Thank you for making this year amazing. Thank you for reading.
