Foreplay has always been one of my favorites parts of a book to write. I love the teasing and the build-up and everything that leads to sex when two people are perfect for each other. I think that’s why I love my Beautiful Shame series so much.
It’s a series where I get to give myself permission to add in all the dirty talk and teasing I want, and somehow it just makes the story come together even more perfectly in my head.
As I sat down in October and started playing with different ideas about who the characters would be for the next Beautiful Shame book, Archer and Declan came to life quickly. Archer looks all sweet and shy on the outside, but that’s just hiding a wicked fantasy life and a desperate need to be understood.
Declan is irreverent and funny and loves driving Archer crazy.
They’re almost combustible together from day one, but with these two, all that heat and desire lets them see who the other really is without the façade we usually show people. They’re so cute together and were so much fun to write, I can’t wait for you to meet them.
Check out the first chapter of Beautiful Shame: Archer & Declan.
It’s up on preorder now and will release on the 18th!
