Genre:  Multicultural paranormal romance, short story

The bad boy next door or a ghost lover from ages past? When Serena Little Feather returns to the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation, she finds herself caught in a dangerous love triangle. Chayton Arrowhead is dark and sexy, but she’s been warned against him. Yet at night, she hears a flute playing behind her house. The music is haunting and seductive, rousing feelings of lust and need.

Legend told of a Sioux warrior who’d lured many women with his flute music. The young brave had tossed his conquests aside until he’d been found dead with a knife in his stone heart. It was said that the brave’s spirit still roamed the countryside, playing his songs and looking for love. Every so often, a pretty girl responded.

Right now, that pretty girl is Serena. With her body ablaze and her mind spinning, she must choose a lover to ease her restless nights. Will she fall for the hot-blooded outcast or submit to the erotic call of a ghost?

Going Deepkimberlydean_Going_Deep_web

Genre: Contemporary erotica
Release: 2004/2015
ISBN 0352338768

Football players and cheerleaders – there’s just something about guys in tight pants and women in short skirts. As a cheerleader at Southern Dominion University, Brynn Montgomery had fought her attraction to the football team’s star receiver, Cody Jones. She’d been dating the quarterback, Rex, but Cody had always been there, watching and waiting. On one fateful night, Brynn had finally submitted to Cody’s desires. She’d given him her virginity, only to have Rex catch them and a full-blown sex scandal erupt.

Ten years later, Brynn returns to the university to teach and, hopefully, restore her dignity and reputation. That proves to be difficult, though, for Cody is now the football coach for the Dukes, and Rex is the manager of a rival team. Soon, Brynn is caught up in the action between the alpha males again – the clash of pads, the shimmer of pompoms, and the lust of healthy athletes. Rex uses her guilt to get close to her, but it’s Cody who’s the most dangerous. This time, he’s determined to score – and score big.

Decisions, decisions…

When I finish a big project like a full-length novel, the time afterward is interesting.  75% of me is thrilled to just get caught up on daily life.  I’ve straightened the house and even cleaned the carpeting.  I’ve restocked the refrigerator and sworn to get back to eating healthy (no more Monster cookies to “help” me write).  I’ve hit the gym and gotten a massage.

But my creative side is churning again in the pleasant way.  When I get deep into a book, the creativity is very focused and intense.  Right now, I’ve got random story ideas bouncing around my brain.  I’m considering what project to pick up next.  Do I dive straight into Courting Gossip (the next Courting book!) or do I squeeze a shorter project in there first?  Should I work on getting some of my older titles back on the market?  Should I put some blogs together?

It’s a short breathing time before my next deadline, but I think it’s important.  How do you refresh and regroup after you’ve completed a major milestone?

TV must not like #Romance readers

I should be writing, but I’ve also been watching a lot of mid-season finales on TV.  (When did that become a thing?)  I’ve concluded that TV show runners must not like romance readers, or they don’t understand how voracious and fanatic we are.  Why do I say this?  Because they’re killing off all the romance!

Just last week, I saw Oliver appear to lose Felicity on Arrow.  (The jury is still out on whether she really dies or not.)  On The Originals, Klaus woke up to find Cami had her throat slit.  I understand drama, but do the writers of these shows really understand that they’re removing the part of the show that keeps a lot of viewers watching?

Earlier this year, Orphan Black killed off Paul.  I was a huge Orphan Black fan until that moment.  (Well, let’s call it that season. Boy clones?  Bad idea.)  But seriously, I started watching the show because of the chemistry between Paul and Sarah.  It lit up the entire first season.  Then the writers forgot about it in Season 2.  Season 3, they killed him, and I walked.  I haven’t watched it since.  Same thing for Revenge.  I stopped watching after they killed Aiden.  I loved Aiden and Emily/Amanda.  I mean, I literally turned off the television when he died.  I never returned to either show.  Ever.  I lost all interest.

So I have to ask why shows are doing this.  Is it because it’s too difficult to keep couples interesting after you make them a couple?  Whaaaa.  Tell that to J.D. Robb.  She’s up to over 50 books about Eve and Roarke and still topping the charts.  No, writing romance isn’t easy, but it’s rewarding to the viewers who have invested their time in your show.  Romance readers love series.  We gobble them up and eagerly await the next book (i.e. episode.)

Here’s an idea:  Keep the couples.  Keep the viewers.
