Sexual Healing which comes out today and is part of the Coming in Hot Boxed set. It was literally written in ten days because I had a hardware crash and had to start from scratch pretty much. But in this case it became a blessing from what my beta readers have said. It was originally supposed to be a contemporary. It was going okay until the crash. Around that time I started to get an itch to write another vampire. So I reworked it and it became a paranormal. In Sexual Healing, Zoe is a paramedic and getting ready to become engaged to Dr. Derek Barnes. But she’s never forgotten his twin brother Liam with whom she always felt a closer connection. He left town when he and his lover Brent were discovered in bed together during their high school graduation party. Brent and Liam return years later, for Zoe the mate they need to make them complete.
