Bonus Scene, Giveaway(s) and More in November

Hello My Passionistas! This month  lots of goodies await you: a free bonus scene from PERFECT, new audio book announcement, and several giveaways to start your holiday season off with a bang.
 

Bonus Scene from Perfect

First, an outtake from PERFECT (Book #3 of the Elite Doms series) is now available for your reading pleasure. Click here for its super-secret hidey space on my web site. This scene was cut during editing. For those of you who have read PERFECT, this scene takes place before the current Chapter Six where Isabella and Alexander’s walk through his extensive gardens. Enjoy!

Other bonus materials coming your way in coming months: The Three Laws of the Tribunal, London’s List (from UNTOUCHABLE) and an abandoned “chapter one” from PERFECT. Check back here or join my exclusive Readers Group Email Group to get notices sent directly to you.
 

New Audio Book Coming!

The talented, smexy-voiced Anastacia Whatley is recording UNTOUCHABLE right now. Woo-hoo. I can’t wait to hear Carson and London’s banter outloud. (They are quite lively in my head.) You’ll be the first to know when it’s available, so watch future reader group emails and my Facebook page for an announcement. 

About UNTOUCHABLE: Carson Drake is the master of the romantic pre-emptive strike. But then he meets London Chantelle who tests every assumption he’s ever had about love.

In the meantime, Lovely is available via audiobook right now. Let me know what you think?

November Giveaway: In honor of Gratitude Season

You are so wonderful to hang with me here and in all the fun social media spots. In honor of YOU: A very special reader gift will go to one lucky winner at the end of this month: a $25 Amazon Gift Card just in time for that holiday spending. Giveaway awarded December 1 at 12 noon Eastern time. Anyone from anywhere may enter once a day. 

ENTER HERE

Congratulations to Lynn W for winning last month’s giveaway: a swan pendant and cord. 

Also, check out LadySmut.com for a super special giveaway on Black Friday (November 25), the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. That day, LadySmut bloggers, myself included, will post many free book excerpts for your reading pleasure, and we’ll be giving away a basket of books and goodies to someone who comments under any post from that day. Mark your calendars to visit LadySmut.com on November 25!

While you’re at LadySmut, check out my latest blog post there: Ghosts Making Booty Calls. Did you know they do??? And apparently some of them are quite fresh. The nerve.
 

NaNoWriMo

Heard of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo, the international speed-writing event that happens every November? Well, this girl is doing it in an effort to get you the fourth Elite Doms book, LUCKY, as soon as humanly possible. That means speed-writing every. single. day. Tap-tap-tap-tap-tap-tap!! Visit me on Facebook for daily progress. Snippets of the book will be shared along the way. 

Preliminary blurb below (i.e. the publisher hasn’t even seen it yet). This could change but it gives you some sense of where LUCKY is headed:

Billionaire and successful entertainment investor Derek Damon Wright learned at a young age to never trust a silent, smiling woman. But on his 13th nightclub opening in Washington, DC, a woman walks in with a smile he’s never seen before—-one that he curiously trusts and who rocks his boring, albeit privileged, world.

Some of your favorite Elite Doms make appearances in LUCKY, too. See inspiration for Derek below. <drool>

May you have an enjoyable November. I’ll be counting my blessings this Thanksgiving season, starting with YOU and all the readers who have shared some of their time with the Elite Doms of Washington.

Xo,
Elizabeth

New Audiobook Release, an Erotic Romance With Heart

Lets Talk Audio! I’m super excited to report that Lovely, book one of the Elite Doms of Washington Series, has been made into an audio book.

Personally, I’ve been listening to more audiobooks in the last six months. Listening rather than reading gives my eyes a break and makes doing the dishes soooo much more interesting.

Here’s a chance to get Lovely for free!

Are you on audible? Would you be willing to write a review for the audio version of Lovely?  The first three people who can email me a ‘yes’ ‘to both those questions, will receive a code for a free copy of Lovely, narrated by the very talented and sexy-voiced Anastasia Whatley. (Email me here: ElizabethLoveStory@gmail.com)

The audio version of Lovely is just over 11 hours long. That’s half the length of the last Black Dagger Brotherhood book I listened to! (Love me some BDB.)

I only have 3 FREE codes left, and I suspect they’ll go fast so email me quickly – again if you’re on audible (that’s a requirement to listen). Thanks for considering giving Lovely a listen.

About Lovely

Stand alone. Not a cliff-hanger. HEA, M/F, BDSM elements, graphic language, one hot Congressman and his young female sub.

Can you have love and power at the same time?

Politician and billionaire Jonathan Brond has mastered his work, his reputation and the art of sexual domination while keeping his family’s political legacy intact. But a chance encounter with college student Christiana Snow promises something he didn’t think was possible–meeting someone honest. When the charismatic man proposes a summer of sensual, sexual submission, Christiana leaps into his world—the antidote to her bland life. But Washington, D.C. is an unforgiving place. Soon gossip and scandal threaten their relationship. Yet, in a town of players, introducing a new game is the only way out. Who knew love would be the winning plan?

Read the reviews here.

The Elite Doms of Washington series shows that not all power in D.C. is wielded by politicians.

RT Booklovers Convention, Amazon Gift Cards and the Pink Door

Happy May!

So much happened in April, where do I start?

How about with the May giveaway?  On Wednesday, June 1 at 6 p.m. Eastern, one lucky winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. ENTER HERE!

Congratulations to Stacey. who won last month’s giveaway — a  special book swag pack from the RT Booklovers Convention. Speaking of which…

RT was so much fun! Read all about this once-a-year gathering of readers, authors, bloggers and industry leaders in this post for LadySmut. I share the predicted bookish trends, including how erotic romance remains popular (thank goodness) and audiobooks being the “next great thing” to happen in bookland (another “yay!” since Lovely, book one in the Elite Doms of Washington series, is going to be available soon via audiobook).

What are you reading?

Summer is coming and it’s time to refresh that TBR pile. I can recommend Sierra Cartwright’s BIND, Book one in The Donovan Dynasty series. (Check out my interview with her on LadySmut on Friday, May 27). 

About BIND: Only one man can help her. Is she willing to pay his price? Faced with the potentially overwhelming loss of her family’s fortune, Lara Bertrand turns to the one man who can help her, the gorgeous and powerful Connor Donovan. Connor is absolutely willing to help her out. For a price. He not only wants her hand in marriage, but also her total submissive surrender.

Blog Tour News

LOVELY, book one in the Elite Doms series (a.k.a the book that started it all) is going on tour starting Memorial Day in the U.S., May 30.  Watch this blog for the schedule. You never know what goodies might be had.

Warrior Goddesses Cancer Charity Drive

I’m also participating in the Pearls Inner Goddess Charity Drive, where some of my signed books will be given away to support this wonderful cause. 100% of the funds raised are donated to Pink Door, a non-profit organization that helps cancer survivors to reclaim their lives. The auction will happen on eBay May 9-15 , 2016 under eBay user profile warriorgoddesses. They also will will feature donated items/packages on http://www.innergoddessforum.com/ throughout the week of the event. 

Enjoy the lovely spring weather my friends. May you have time to stop and smell the flowers.

My dog has taught me much, but nothing greater than to take a deep breath and enjoy life as it comes.

Giveaway, My Next Book, and Frozen Azaleas

HELLO, my Lovelies!

Just a quick post about what I’ve been up to. Let’s get right to the good stuff.

GIVEAWAY FUN

Hubby and I are attending, and we’ll snag all the books, pens, pins, postcards, and other fun items that we can.

Last year’s loot:RT swag

Planning on attending RT? I’d love to say hello. (Hint: I’ll likely be closer to the bar than the slot machines.)

Congratulations to Maria B. who won March’s giveaway — a  special swag pack from Wild Wicked Weekend, another fun event. (My recap of this most wickedly fun event at LadySmut can be read here.)

PLACES TO FIND ME THIS YEAR

April 12–17, 2016
Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
Las Vegas, NV

Washington Romance Writers

OTHER FUN

Did you read my guest blog post on why I think learning to lapdance is a feminist act?  Thanks to Kate Allure’s Sizzling Romance blog for hosting me. (Did you know I teach dance, too? It’s never too late to move it, move it, move it.) Check out my aerial arts and burlesque Pinterest board for those lovers of these dance forms.

SPEAKING OF PINTEREST BOARDS

PERFECT, the third Elite Doms of Washington book, is coming to you in late spring — if all goes according to plan. The manuscript is being edited as I type. In the meantime, want to visit my Pinterest inspiration boards for the characters, which can be found here (Mark) and here (Isabella)

Sometimes the perfect man is the one most forbidden. 

For ten years, Isabella Santos denied she married the wrong man. After her husband’s death, fate gives her one more chance to connect with her perfect Master—Mark Santos, the brother of her late husband.

HAPPY SPRING!

My azaleas, which are valiantly trying to stay alive as the nighttime temps dip into the 30s (after being in the 60s).

You can do it. Keep going! Keep going!
