BillionaireWithBenefits_TourBannerHello, and welcome to the Billionaire with Benefits Blog Tour! *fanfare, etc*

You might have noticed this book took me a while to write . . . or maybe you didn’t notice, but take my word for it, it did. That might be why it ended up longer than it needed it to be. Ultimately we trimmed over 15,000 words from the original Billionaire manuscript, so posts from me (as opposed to spotlights and reviews) are all going to be cut scenes from the book. Sort of like the extras on a DVD, but, you know, not. Continue Reading

You remember the old children’s story with the mouse from the country and the mouse from the city? It’s one of those fables with a moral and whatnot. Bruised is a country mouse, city mouse kind of story, only without the moral ;)

There’s the country mouse – Billy, who comes from a small town outside of Dallas – and the city mouse – Johnson, who comes from Santa Barbara. Amusingly enough, there is also the disparity in their jobs. One is a white collar worker – Billy the lawyer – while the other is a blue collar worker – Johnson the garage mechanic.

TNA: Hi, Suki, welcome back to The Novel Approach. I’m so pleased to have you back to discuss your new novel Wild Summer. Your young heroes meet and fall in love as teenagers, go their separate ways, only to find each other again years later. Do you believe in the idea that in real life two people can be destined for each other, or is that only the stuff of fairy tales and romance novels? Why do you believe one way or the other?

thornhillsdilemma-300dpiWhile I’ve had the cover for my upcoming release, Thornhill’s Dilemma, for a few weeks, I wanted to save the cover reveal for my favorite site and second home online, The Novel Approach. So, without further ado, I unveil the beautiful cover. Thank you to Kelly Shorten at Musa Publishing for working with me to make this beautiful cover happen! Kelly is aces.

Book three of my Sapphire Club series, Thornhill’s Dilemma, tells the story of Phillip Allard and Alexander Chilton, with a guest appearance by Lady Hope Linden.

In the book’s original incarnation, Chocolate, Tea, and the Duchess, the story was a menage. When I received the rights to the story back from the defunct publisher, I did with it what my gut told me to do five years ago when I wrote the story. While there are a couple of menage scenes, not graphic, this is a story about Phillip and Alex.

There was so much more story for these characters than what I wrote in C,T, & D. Then I hadn’t explored their lives completely and considered things that will become evident in the reading. When I sat down to do a pre-edit, as I did with the other two books, Phillip spoke to me, quite adamantly. From that, comes what I think is a beautiful story that takes place in a time when homosexual relationships were against the law. Continue Reading
