Holy Hotness

Thank you for taking your time to visit me today.

I will confess I'm so totally overwhelmed at the moment and cannot remove the smile from my face, but I have great reason to feel this happy.

Now, I know us authors are told to take a review with a pinch of salt, but this review 'Holy Hotness' means the world to me as this is the first novel I have written without a co-author. Anxious to go alone, I had much to consider when dropping my co-author, afraid I would mess up, afraid I couldn't do a book without someone guiding me, however, with the amazing staff at Secret Cravings and my wonderful editor, I achieved my first alone published works Dan's Desires, book 5 in the Desires series.

The review from Amazon

Holy Hotness

To be honest, the only the only thing I didn't like was some of the slang differences from over the pond. There were times when I had to look up a phrase or two because I didn't understand it. I only recently have broadened my horizons to across the way, so I don't understand 100% of the lingo. That's by no means the fault of any author. This book was hot and steamy without losing the story line of love and fighting for it.
Dan got talked into being a male escort while in college. He thought, why not? I love sex and I can get paid for it. What more could a horny young man ask for. He had lost all illusions of love in college. He thought he was in love and decided to cut all the other women out of his life. However his girlfriend didn't feel the same way. It left Dan crushed and he totally cut of all of his feelings off. When his first escort job recommends Desire's, he's not sure if it's something he could do. He does research on the place and feels Desire's will put him in a better position than escorting. He still has that carefree feeling with sex and no love. He even starts sleeping with the boss. Angel is very commanding and not always is her style of sex his cup of tea. Angel starts sending him the less attractive clientele but he's so wrapped up in his own world he doesn't feel the warning bells like he should.
Then SHE walks into his life. Stacie Clifford. She's beautiful in every sense of the word and for once he can't just lay with her and go. That's not why she's at Desire's. Just ending an abusive marriage, Stacie needs so much more than a tussle in the sheets. She needs to meet her femininity again, get to know herself, and get her confidence back. She can't even look Dan in the eye when they first meet. He knows that he has to go slow with her and it's the ultimate torture. The more sessions that she books with him, the more he realizes that she has made him a man and despite his contract, he's falling in love. He knows to have Stacie he'll have to leave Desire's. But little does he know that Angel has other plans and will not let him go without a fight.

The blurb
Dan, a devious, hot, sincere young man, preys on women like a vulture. He takes up escorting before entering a world of sexual fantasy in a club called Desires, being paid to have sex. He loves being a naughty boy without conviction, even having sex with the boss, using any means to have his wicked way.
Then he meets a new client, Stacie Clifford. He needs to drop the boy act and become a man, yet remember the club’s emotional contract. He makes it his responsibility to protect Stacie from Angel the boss of the club. He’s in love.
He has almost everything: a wife, son and a baby on the way, ownership of Desires, yet something is missing from his life, Sapphire his daughter. Unable to move on, feeling destroyed, his marriage is uneasy. Day after day he fights his heartache, wanting to be happy and be Dan, the man he once was. Will Dan ever be complete again? What will it take to get him there?
Hot! Seductive. Dan the man, at his best!
“Right, here we go,” Shannon said, knocking on the door and then entered. Dan entered the office and his eyes widened at the room’s surprisingly masculine decor. Dark panelling covered all the walls, illuminated by several small lights placed strategically throughout the room. A large, old, oak desk dominated the space, sitting against the far wall. The only nod to femininity was several vanilla candles, which scented the room with their subtle fragrance. The office was immaculate.
The desk held only a phone and a laptop. Behind it was a large leather swivel chair. He stood admiring the office when suddenly a dominating looking woman appeared—young, slim, twenty-something, with a shimmering sheet of black hair rippling down her back. She wore a formal business suit, and black-framed glasses perched on her finely-shaped nose, but even in the severe attire, she was stunning. She was tall and her height was further enhanced by her towering platform heels. This woman was the epitome of confidence.
“Sorry about that,” she said.
Dan couldn’t believe the building was littered with sexy women. He hoped there were men somewhere, but then the thought of it only being him turned him on.
He noticed Angel looking up and down at him, wondering if she was noticing his young boyish-charm.
“Please take a seat,” she said and made her way around to the other side of the desk.
The interview started and Angel put him on the spot and asking him about his opinion on varied topics, making him aware some guests wanted conversation as well as sex and someone who was more than just a him-bo—all brawn and no brains—would be an asset.
However, the sex was also important, so the conversation soon veered. “So tell me…what are your main talents?” she’d asked, as he watched her licking her lips seductively, leaning forward and staring into his eyes.
“I know how to please a woman and make her feel special,” he said, sitting comfortably on the leather sofa.
“And how would you make a woman feel special?” she asked, standing up and walking around the desk. His eyes were fully focused on her.
“I tell them what they want to hear,” he said, his voice calm.
“Show me,” she said. She rested her buttocks on the desk and waited.
Dan stood and approached Angel, maintaining eye contact. He moved closer to her. He stood before her, his legs touching hers. He leaned forward, blowing his breath over her face aware how much women liked it. His cock pulsed.
He moved to her right ear and whispered, “You are the most beautiful, most desirable woman I think I have ever seen. Your hair is perfection, your lips divine, and your body exquisite.” He dropped a kiss on her cheek. She released a sweet gasp. His lips pressed against the earlobe. “Your voice makes me want to fall to my knees and howl at the moon while I worship the perfection that is you.” Dan gripped the lobe with his teeth and licked before releasing it. His hands went to her waist and he noticed her closing her eyes at his touch. “If I could make love to you, and only you, for the rest of my life, I would desire nothing else till I die.” His thumbs stroked her waist and she drew in a shuddering breath.
Angel gazed into his eyes. “Um…wow, great…um,” she said, wriggling out from his hold and shooting around to the other side of her desk. “Right, well…I will give you a little trial…see how you connect with the clients and well…yes,” she said, as he heard stuttering in her breathing, wishing she would come back so he could truly entertain her.
“I need you to sign this contract…all workers sign it. It states you will have no emotional involvement with any of the clients,” she said, as he watched her digging in her drawer and passing a copy of the contract across the desk.
He took the pen and signed it without reading it. “You trust me?” she said.
Dan met her surprised gaze. “Why shouldn’t I? I am simply here to earn some extra cash and do something I enjoy. I have no intention of getting emotionally involved with anyone,” he said, passing the contract back across the desk.
