Serena Bell: Still So Hot Cover Reveal

Today, author Serena Bell stops by to talk about her upcoming release Still So Hot on her cover reveal blog tour. Read on to find out more about Still So Hot and several other releases in Bell's future.

 

9780373797851It’s wrong to play favorites, but I’ll confess that Brett Jordan is my favorite hero I’ve written so far. And not just because of that hip dip, that expression on his face, or whatever is happening off-screen at just-below-waist-level. He’s my favorite because he starts out at the beginning of Still So Hot! as an unrepentant serial womanizer and ends up dismantled, worked over, and thoroughly enjoyed by the matchmaker heroine whose dating boot-camp weekend his shenanigans have almost ruined. He’s not the same man by the end, except maybe for those bits you’re visually devouring right now.

 

Here’s the official blurb for Still So Hot!

Your “Dating Boot Camp” Itinerary 

 

Day One: 

 

Fly to a luxurious, five-star resort in St. Barts with your personalized dating coach, Elisa Henderson. Show up on the plane with a guy you just picked up. Find out Brett Jordan isn’t just a drool-worthy hottie with a rockin’ hard bod—he’s also a total player…and Elisa’s former best friend!

Today, RNN hosts author Logan Belle writing about "What's On Your Sexual Bucket List?" in support of the release of her latest erotic novel, "Now or Never." This story features a 40-something year old heroine who discovers her sexuality while dealing with a recent, breast cancer diagnosis. This story is an RNN Recommended Read (although is the first book in a series, so does not have a HEA).

 

Jamie Brenner RGB wide shot 72dpiLogan Belle asks "What's on Your Sexual Bucket List?"

 

When we consider what we want out of life, we might think about marriage, or children, or a certain type of house or career. But how often do we ask ourselves what we want out of sex? And are we willing to admit our desires while we still have the chance to go for it?

 
The question of what I really wanted – physically, erotically – came to me this summer when I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. It was a huge wake-up call that my body is changing, and that I can not take my sex life for granted. Even in the best case scenario (which fortunately I had) that I could treat the breast cancer and get on with my life, it still made me confront the fact that I’m no longer in my twenties.  It wasn’t that I was dissatisfied with my sex life, but I did have the realization that it won’t last forever. Suddenly, I knew that if there was anything I hadn’t yet tried or experienced, I should get on it -- fast!


As an erotica author, this was something I had to write about. I’d written half a dozen novels, but never before had I felt such urgency to tell a specific story. A week after my surgery, I began NOW OR NEVER.
