It's Release Day!

It's officially release day for COME UNDONE!

I want to offer my thanks and congratulations to my fellow box set authors: Kim Carmichael, Solera Winters, Louisa Bacio, Kerry Adrienne, C. Margery Kempe, Alyssa Breck, KC Burn and Linnea Alexis.

Rio is my story in the box set and I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have had the chance to make this song come to life as a romance story. By the lyrics, I knew Rio had to be a dancer and the story had to take place on some tropical island. But everything else was pretty much left up to my imagination. How fun, right?

Of course, everyone's inspiration came from the band itself. And if you were a teenager in the 80s, you were a fan of Duran Duran.

So, to celebrate the box set's release, let's do a giveaway! Post in the comments below your favorite song by Duran Duran and why. (It's okay if it's not Rio, LOL).

The giveaway will be open until 11:59pm PST on Sunday, August 9th. I'll choose a random winner and announce later that week.

The prize is a $10 Amazon gift card and your choice of one of my backlist titles (digital copy only).

Now, here's an excerpt from Rio...

Of course she still wanted him.
That’s why she was always so on edge whenever he was around. Her pride wouldn’t let her show him that she still thought about their one night together. So she had done everything to make him believe the opposite.
She didn’t want to want him. 
Yet when he stroked the inside of her wrist with his thumb and moved his face closer to hers, her resolve to push him away nearly evaporated.
 “You said it yourself. We’re too different. We don’t work well together,” she whispered and met his gaze head on.
He pulled her against him fully, and she felt his growing arousal. “I was wrong. There’s one thing we both know that we do together pretty fucking well.”
Chase whispered the last few words against her mouth. When she didn’t protest, he pushed in for a kiss. Warm, soft, and tentative. 
It was nice, but nothing she couldn’t walk away from. That is until his tongue swiped her bottom lip and jolted alive every sense, every nerve, making the rest of her resolve shatter in his arms. Sighing, she grabbed his shirt with both hands and kissed him back with fervor. His arms wrapped around her body, hugging her as if she might be carried away by the ocean breeze.
Their kisses turned hard and demanding, almost punishing. As if each of them had a price to pay for withholding such pleasure for so long. 
“God, I almost forgot how good you taste. So fucking sweet, like cherry,” he mumbled in between kisses. “I want to taste you everywhere. Please tell me you’re going to let me?”
The thought of him licking her somewhere else made her legs weak in anticipation. “Yes, yes I’ll let you.”

Once upon a time in the 80s there was a band, whose members stole the hearts of many a young girl. With their guyliner, unique fashion and music that struck through the heart, Duran Duran changed how we hear and see music. Today nine hot romance authors bring you stories inspired by their music.
