As some of you may have heard, Six-Alarm Sexy is my hot new erotic romance series, featuring the men and women of Fire Station 44’s technical rescue team. Last December, I released Under His Command, the first book in the series. This book was written as a stand-alone. However, there is a prequel. Aftershocks was originally released as part of the Romance in the Rain anthology, in which each novella has a hero or heroine from the Caldwell family, dating back to the 1850’s. The problem? Readers sometimes had difficulty finding Aftershocks in the various online e-retailers. The solution? I’m releasing Aftershocks as a single title novella!
Aftershocks – The Cover
Aftershocks is the prequel to the Six-Alarm Sexy series. It is the catastrophic incident that sends reverberations throughout Seattle Fire Department’s Station 44 team of rescue firefighters long after the earthquake is over. The Six-Alarm Sexy series follows these brave men and women into their personal lives as they re-evaluate what’s important to them. Some will delve deeper into existing relationships, while others will take on new and unexpected partners.
Given that Aftershocks was originally written as part of the Romance in the Rain anthology, which was a collective effort, I wrote it as a romantic suspense. The Six-Alarm Sexy series that follows is erotic romance. Now, without further ado, here it is: the cover of Aftershocks!
Like the cover of Under His Command (Book One in the Six-Alarm Sexy series), the cover of Aftershocks was designed by Judi Fennell. You can contact her at: www.formatting4U.com. The photo comes from Kim Killion (www.hotdamnstock.com), who has been fabulous for including firefighter photos in all her recent photo shoots. I can’t thank her enough for giving me Jamie. 🙂
Aftershocks – Description
What’s Next in the Six-Alarm Sexy Series?
The first book in my new series is Under His Command. It’s the continuation of Jamie and Erica Caldwell’s story, begun in the prequel, Aftershocks. Both the hero and heroine have certain sexual needs and wants that they’ve hidden from each other for various reasons. They need to work through these issues, in and out of the bedroom, to finally reach their HEA.
A firefighter desperate to save his failing marriage earns the trust–and the sexual submission–of his controlling wife in the most pleasurable of ways.
After an explosive one-night stand results in pregnancy, Jamie Caldwell is thrilled to marry the perfect foil to his Dom side. But when his submissive wife starts cringing every time he gives a command, Jamie shackles his dark desires. A bout of rough, frenzied reunion sex makes him wonder if now he should free the Dom he’s kept in chains and teach Erica the joys of submission and sexual surrender.
Erica Caldwell secretly loved every sinful thing Jamie did to her on their first night together. However, terrified she’ll become a codependent doormat like her mother, she repeatedly rejects Jamie’s dominance, despite craving the kind of release only he can give her–the release that comes from yielding to Jamie’s every demand.
Hoping that the trust required by BDSM will help them rebuild their faith in each other, Jamie and Erica embark on a journey of sexual exploration. But is it too late to repair their crumbling marriage?
I’m also furiously working on the second book in the Six-Alarm Sexy series, Everything Bared. I hope to have it ready to release this summer. Stay tuned!
