The agony of defeat never felt so real.

Never in a million years did Jessica Kaufman think she would be divorced from her real-estate mogul husband and left to raise four young daughters on her own in an affluent Atlanta subdivision. The very last thing she expects is an encounter with her gorgeous gardener who looks more like a sexy beast from her daughters’ favorite Disney movie. She is smitten with his evergreen eyes, wild mane of hair and impressive stature.

Tim McGill is in hiding – his reputation and celebrated career on the West Coast left in shambles. He moves far away to distance himself from his downfall and inconspicuously tends the upper-class landscapes to keep his renowned identity a secret. Unlike his typical wealthy clients, Jessica doesn’t seem to mind that he’s a gardener. One spark between them is all it takes to ignite a fiery passion that could explode if Tim’s identity is revealed. He must earn Jessica’s trust and finally come to terms with what he has lost.

Can Tim open his heart wide enough to let in a beautiful mother and her four little girls? Or will his Southern Belle turn her back on him and walk away from their happily-ever-after?

“Ultimate Night’s Delights – A Hot Historical/Fantasy Romance” by Kelli A. Wilkins

Hi Everyone,Ultimate Cover

Today I’m sharing an “inside look” at the making of the third book in my super-hot erotic fantasy trilogy, Naughty Nobles. The series includes Midsummer Night’s Delights, Midwinter Night’s Delights, and Ultimate Night’s Delights. Although the books are connected, each stands alone as an individual read.

In previous blogs, I wrote about Midsummer Night’s Delights and Midwinter Night’s Delights. Midsummer Night’s Delights introduced readers to repressed newlyweds, Julian and Annabelle. They are strangers trapped in an arranged, sexless marriage. To loosen them up, Julian’s father sends them to the Marquis of Demby’s estate to attend a Midsummer Ball. (And this type of ball isn’t for dancing!)

The second book in the series, Midwinter Night’s Delights, picks up six months after the last story and follows the continuing sexual adventures of Annabelle and Julian. (And yes, this novella is just as hot – if not hotter – than the first one!)

Ultimate Night’s Delights is the third and final novella in the series. I never intended to write a trilogy, but the characters kept popping up in my head, and I knew they had more stories to tell! Readers and reviewers fell in love with the characters and the storyline, so I decided to write one more book that wrapped up the trilogy.

However, when I started thinking about the plot, I wasn’t sure what direction to take. I knew there had to be something interesting (beyond a naughty “anything goes” ball) that raised the stakes for everyone, and I thought about blackmail. (It’s always a good motive!)

From there, I developed the idea of the “Black Duke” and his mission to destroy Vincent. Then of course, I had to devise a clever way to tie it all together at the end.

I also enhanced a storyline and shared some insight on two secondary characters, Lono and Lobo. (Readers were briefly introduced to them in the second book.) In this story, I explain how they came to be employed by Vincent and Sabrina and what’s ahead for them in the future.

I think fans of the first two novellas will find this book to be a satisfying conclusion to the series.

Here’s the summary and a mild excerpt.

 

Ultimate Night’s Delights

Julian and Annabelle are back for the final ball!

The Midsummer and Midwinter Balls changed Julian and Annabelle forever. Vincent, the Marquis of Demby, and his wife, Sabrina, introduced them to a world of erotic pleasures. Freed from their inhibitions, they now help other shy couples explore their sexual urges and hidden desires.

But life on Vincent and Sabrina’s estate is anything but tranquil. The notorious Duke of Blackwell has discovered the secret about the naughty balls and is out to destroy the marquis.

Vincent refuses to deny the rumors about the “anything goes” parties he hosts, and turns to his friends for assistance. Together, they devise a plan to defeat the Black Duke… and still find time for a few wicked games.

A mild excerpt:

“This scandal is going to ruin me,” Vincent snapped as he strode into the marble foyer.

Julian stood halfway down the staircase, watching as the marquis threw his hat on a nearby chair. “You’ve returned early. I hope your trip wasn’t—”

“My trip? The trip was fine. Everything was fine—until I got back here,” Vincent growled and ran his hands through his short red-brown hair. “Do you have any idea—”

“Oh, stop being so dramatic,” the marquise said, breezing into the foyer and pulling off her white satin gloves. “Everything will be fine, darling.”

“Are you sure, Sabrina? After this? Let’s hope you’re right. I need a drink,” Vincent replied and headed to the parlor.

“He’s been impossible lately,” Sabrina commented as she unhooked her maroon cloak and folded it over the chair. “What are you doing up there?” Sabrina swept a lock of raven-black hair over her shoulder and extended her hand to him. “Where’s Annabelle?”

“She’ll be down soon.” He descended the stairs and kissed the back of Sabrina’s bare hand.

“Welcome home, Sabrina,” Annabelle said as she came down the stairs. She wore a sky blue and white dress with a low-cut lace bodice and lace sleeves. Her light brown hair was pinned up with a silver comb.

“Shall we go into the parlor and have a few drinks? There’s much to discuss, and I’m sure Vincent will need to rant and rave about this dreadful scandal,” Sabrina said.

“Yes, of course. I hope it gets resolved soon. I know the last two months have been rather difficult for him,” Julian replied.

Word had gotten out that the Marquis of Demby had been hosting wild sexual orgies on the estate. Someone had talked, and now everyone in the kingdom was wagging their tongues and spreading lies about Vincent and Sabrina.

Of course, the part about him hosting sex parties was true—they’d had lots of fun at the masked balls—but the invitation list was private, and everyone knew to be discreet. But someone had given the Duke of Blackwell sordid details about what went on at the Midwinter Ball, and now Vincent was paying the price.

He followed Annabelle and Sabrina into the parlor. Vincent was pacing the blue and gold carpet, muttering to himself. From the way his hazel eyes blazed and the set of his lean jaw, Julian knew he was furious. In the year he had known Vincent, he’d never seen him so angry.

Julian poured two glasses of brandy from the crystal decanter on the center table and served them to Annabelle and Sabrina. “Vincent, what—”

“Goddamn bastard!”

“Vincent, please, no more shouting, or my head will ache,” Sabrina chastised.

“Why shouldn’t I shout?” Vincent gulped down half his brandy. “I lost another business contract because of that son of a bitch and his evil lies.”

Julian poured himself a drink. “If I may ask, what happened?”

“The Black Duke wrote Sir Owen a letter filled with lies. Owen thought I should know why he was dissolving our business relationship and had the letter forwarded to me,” Vincent replied.

“What did the letter say?” Julian asked.

“Let me quote: ‘Did you know the man in charge of your shipping is a raging pervert? He likes to tie people up and whip them, then perform vulgar acts on their private areas.’” Vincent sneered.

“Don’t get upset.” Sabrina rested her hand on Vincent’s jacket sleeve. “Give it two more months and everyone will forget about this. By then, something new will capture their attention and—”

“In two more months I’ll have no business left.” Vincent swallowed the rest of his drink and poured himself another. “That arrogant prick is out to ruin me!”

Julian glanced at Annabelle. Her brown eyes were wide, and she had a stunned look on her face. Neither of them had ever seen the usually composed marquis so enraged before, and he and Sabrina hardly ever quarreled…

Dear John…

For teacher Lily Hogan, those words would come to mean so much. She knew that giving back to the community brought joy into people’s lives. When her fourth-grade class writes letters to the military overseas in Afghanistan, she takes up her own pen and leads her students by example – writing a letter to an unknown soldier.

CPO John Griffin and his K-9 dog, Radar, have been through so much together over the last several years. Sniffing out bombs, searching the hills and mentoring his team, he feels so alone and unsure of his future- until a letter reminds him that there’s more to life in this world he’s protecting. Simple words, a kind gesture and feeling that he isn’t forgotten out there in the desert, compels him to write back. Before long, he finds himself looking forward to the care packages and letters from his pen-pal halfway across the world.

With every letter and every word, they begin to develop a friendship and wonder what the other person is truly like? Major life changes are scary enough as it is – but is it possible to fall in love with someone before you’ve even laid eyes upon them? Can the magic of the season bring the sweetest gift of all?

The Lawkeepers is a multi-author series alternating between historical westerns and contemporary westerns featuring law enforcement heroes that span multiple agencies and generations. Join bestselling authors Jenna Brandt, Lorana Hoopes and many others as they weave captivating, sweet and inspirational stories of romance and suspense between the lawkeepers — and the women who love them.

The Lawkeepers is a world like no other; a world where lawkeepers and heroes are honored with unforgettable stories, characters, and love.

** Note: Each book in The Lawkeepers series is a standalone book, in a mini-series, and you can read them in any order.
