Courting Jealousy is now free on Amazon in the UK. I didn’t forget about you readers across the pond. It just took a while longer.
Welcome, MFRW Book Hook Blog Hoppers! Have you downloaded your free copy yet?
When Noelle hires an escort to accompany her to a charity event, it’s merely to show her ex that’s she’s moved on. Yet she gets more than she bargained for when Dane is assigned to accompany her. Tall, dark, and handsome, he knows how to arouse jealousy.
Her laugh morphed into a moan when Dane settled his big, hot hand over her breast. He squeezed gently, lifting her in his palm. “I care, and I prefer the real thing.”
Noelle’s nipple hardened on the spot, and the ache traveled down directly to her core. “Why… why are you saying these things?” she asked.
They were hidden away together. Alone, with nobody around. There was no reason to keep up the act.
His lips curled into a somewhat embarrassed smile. “I guess you could say I’m hot for teacher.”
Her jaw dropped. Sexy men didn’t come on to her. She was pretty and she kept in shape, but she was low-key. Composed and self-contained. With her father’s high-profile job, she’d learned to live in the shadows. Handsome men like Dane didn’t tend to look outside the limelight for girls like her.
Yet when he leaned more heavily into her, she felt the evidence of his interest against her belly.
She propped her hands against his chest, and heat seeped into her fingertips. He was hard and muscled, yet she swore she could feel his heart pounding as hard as hers.
“But why?” she insisted.
“Why wouldn’t I be attracted to you?” he asked, flicking her nipple in chastisement. “From what I’ve seen, you’re sweet, giving, and adventurous. And in case you didn’t know it, you’re stunningly beautiful.”
He dropped his head and whispered into her ear. “I want to kiss you for real.”

Welcome to all the readers on the Book Hooks Blog Hop!
It’s Thanksgiving Eve. I’ve never celebrated it before, but we celebrate Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Why not? This Thanksgiving Eve is extra special, because I’m not only excited for the turkey and pumpkin pie, I also have a brand new book releasing. That’s like the whipped cream on top! My hope is that people will have their big dinner and then settle down on the sofa for a nice long read.
Here’s a sneak excerpt to give you a taste.
An Excerpt From: COURTING TROUBLE
© Copyright KIMBERLY DEAN, 2014.
Published by Mischief , November 27, 2014.
Her hands were shaking as she smoothed her dress, making sure it covered her. “This shouldn’t have happened,” she said tightly. “It’s against the contract.”
His eyes narrowed. So this was his fault? “Really? Then why did you come out tonight without wearing any panties?”
The answer hit him like a ton of bricks. She was an escort. It was pretty damn obvious. How stupid could he be?
Her head snapped to the couple who walked by, oblivious. Lowering her voice, she hissed. “I did wear panties.”
“The invisible kind?”
“No,” she snapped. She lifted a hand to her forehead and looked anywhere but at him. “I had to leave them in the ladies’ room.”
The look she sent him was at once woeful, discomfited, and fuming. It was the most honest she’d been all night.
And it made Jason’s erection nearly jump out of his pants.
She wasn’t a slut; she was a prim good girl whom he’d made wet – before he’d even kissed her. Before he’d even touched her for real. Had all those little brushes and strokes been enough to get her juices flowing?
Testosterone pumped through him.
Oh, yeah. They had something going on here.
Genre: Erotic Romance
When times get tough, how bad does a good girl have to get?
Sienna Blakely is bright, articulate, underemployed and forced to rely on the one asset she vowed never to use – her looks.
With bills piling up, Sienna signs a contract with Luxxor Escort Services. A contract that strictly forbids any sexual contact with clients… And then she’s assigned to companion Jason Sloan. Just meeting the man causes a full-body jolt. Arrogant, powerful, and sexy, he’s trouble. And he can see through the facade she’s erected, right down to the intelligent and sensual woman underneath. He challenges her wits, and he challenges the rules.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

It’s a very busy time of the year for me. Not only are the holidays upon us, but I have a new book about to release and I’m deep in my Dream Wreakers project. As my newsletter recipients know, I’m reviving the series. The first thing I’m doing is reading the original manuscripts. I plan to edit and update the books before moving on to write something new in the series.
It’s been a trip so far, let me tell you.
It’s been a long time since I read these books. At some points, I’m able to slip into the story and just read. At others, I’m noticing things that need to be changed. The really interesting thing has been to analyze the change in writing style. My author’s voice is definitely there, but I can see old habits. It’s like looking at old pictures of yourself. Yes, it’s still you, but a different version of you.
Anyway, I’m enjoying myself and hope to get past the reading stage soon. Then I’ll be editing and, finally, writing new material again. It’s fun diving back into the world of dreams and sleep – and the paranormal!
Congratulations to Susan and Justine, who were the winners of my newsletter giveaway. Both will receive a print copy of In Her Wildest Dreams.
I also have the results of the poll that asked which genre of my stories you like best. The way the numbers fell out was super interesting. To me, at least!

- Paranormal = 18%
- Contemporary = 12 %
