It's official, the ARC's have been emailed out and there's no turning back. My stomach is in knots, my heart is racing and my mind is spinning out of control. Yes, my fruits of labor are out there to be judged and criticized - AGAIN.
Writing The Art of Control was daunting and emotionally exhausting and I'm in serious need of a margarita with extra EXTRA EXTRA tequila. Working full-time, raising a very excitable 8-year-old and keeping a high-maintenance husband happy while writing a novel is... well... for lack of a better word OVERWHELMING.
Anyhow... on to put the finishing touches on the final edited version of Book 3.
Written for mature audiences and contains kinky graphic sexual encounters, profanity, bondage & discipline, loads of steamy verbosity, and an alpha male that'll make you quiver.
Tucker is man nearing middle age. Married and divorced twice, he has given up on love. An arrogant alpha male, he is best known for being brutally honest and business minded at all times. Having worked his way to the top of his field as a real estate mogul, he is used to getting his way in all things. And more importantly, getting and having his way with anyone that he wants.
Enter Lilliana, a 30 something divorcee and dental hygienist. After inheriting a large tract of land and house from a close relative, she has relocated to an opulent area in Connecticut hoping to start her life anew, and leave her clingy ex-husband behind. Stubborn, opinionated, and impatient, she has no interest in selling her land to the money hungry vultures that have started sniffing around. She also has no interest in falling in love or being pursued by a certain attractive yet arrogant alpha male interested in her property.
Tucker, however, has other plans. Realizing that Lilliana is sitting on a real estate gold mine, he sets his sight on trying to obtain it at any cost. Even if it means buying his way into her heart.
Tucker attempts to deceive his way into Lilliana's life, lavishing her with gifts and false promises. But Lilliana can't be bought and he gets more than he bargained for when she rebuffs his financial and sexual advances at every turn. Their chemistry and physical attraction to one another is undeniable and just when things are heating up and Tucker starts to fall for Lilliana, she discovers where his true motivations lie. Angry and hurt, she vows to get sweet revenge the only way she knows how - by giving in to his every fantasy and toying with his emotions.
