Yesterday I got "the call" from the wonderful Angela James over at Harlequin's newest e-publishing venture, Carina Press. Trouble is I was in the shower and missed it. *face/palm* Luckily for me, they invented email because Angela then emailed me that Carina was going to be sending me a contract for the erotic western Texas Tangle I've been blogging about the past few months.
Yup, lots of happy dancing went on yesterday!
Texas Tangle is the contemporary erotic romance with a western flavor. Here's a very rough blurb -- which I'm sure the wonderful folks over at Carina will pump up soon...
Thanks to her cheating ex-husband and her thieving brother, all Nikki Kimball has left is a bruised heart, an over-drawn bank account and an empty home. When golden-boy Dillon Barnett and his brooding foster-brother Brett Anderson ride into her life, both intent on claiming her love, Nikki has to face her past to decide their futures.
Horse breeder Nikki Kimball is determined to make it on her own after her divorce but when her brother steals her belongings and her identity, her independence and her dreams are threatened. All is not lost when her sex-on-legs neighbor Dillon Barnett drives up in his white pick-up and lends a hand. Dillon’s foster brother, Brett Anderson, has always had his eye on Nikki. Ten years ago, the two friends fought a bitter battle for their high school crush. Although Brett still longs to be the man in Nikki’s life, he’s determined to stand back and let Dillon win Nikki’s heart. If he doesn’t, he could lose the most important thing in his life.
Society demands she choose between the two men she loves. They want her to risk her carefully constructed world by choosing them both.
I don't have a release date for you yet -- that is dependent on how quick I can get through the edits I'll be getting, but it's safe to say you can look for it "Summer of 2010."
So dance with me....
