I’m currently working on a short story, which is a first for me because I’m used to writing full-length novels. But I decided to do a prequel to the third book in the Arrington Family series, Only One for Me so you can meet the oldest of the Arrington family, Cannon. I’ll post a chapter a week on my website toward the end of the year for about 8 to 10 weeks depending upon how long the story is, but I intend to keep it short (under 15,000 words) yet fun, flirty and sexy! Afterwards, it will be a free read on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords and All Romance eBooks. No title or cover yet, but I’m working on it next week and will share once I have it available.
And for those of you who are wondering about answer number 12 in the scavenger hunt, you’ll have to read The Game of Seduction to find out. Information is below. Have a great weekend!
Dr. Bria Arrington has had her heart broken by one bad boy playboy and doesn’t want to travel down that road again. However, she finds herself attracted to her best friend, self-proclaimed bachelor, Rasheed Vincent. After a passionate kiss leaves them desiring more, seducing each other is the only cure.
A retired basketball player, Rasheed is a player on and off the court. When a woman gets too close, he bounces to the next one. But the condition he’s in makes him want a permanent dose of Bria’s love, and he’s ready for the shot. She knows falling in love with Rasheed is a prescription for trouble, yet she is willing to risk it. But can she trust him with her heart?
The Game of Seduction is the second book in the Arrington Family Series.
