I love (LOVE) a good bedroom Dom. That’s not to say I don’t like to read about a sensitive, beta guy from time to time. OR that I don’t like to read BDSM with a seriously alpha male. On the contrary, I enjoy both. But when I wrote Just One Night, I tried to imagine my perfect fantasy hero and I realized he wouldn’t be alpha or beta. He’d be a weird conglomeration of both…and neither. My hero and heroine would be equals outside the bedroom, he would make her omelets for breakfast and open the door for her but he would also pull her hair in bed and spank her if she was naughty…or even if she wasn’t. From that idea, Tomas Santos was born.
I’ve written twenty books to date featuring twenty-three different heroes (*ahem* okay, so a couple were ménage), and Tomas is my favorite, hands down. He’s sweet, and protective. He’s sexy, and supportive. He’s funny himself, and likes smart, funny women. And he’s a show-stopping, heart-melting, belt-wielding sexpot in the bedroom. I’d love for you to meet him!
What qualities do you want to see in your romance heroes? I’ll be giving away a digital copy of Just One Night to two commenters, so leave your email OR Twitter handle if you’d like me to contact you (as well as post here in comments) if you win. Winners will be chosen tomorrow at 8:00 pm, EST.
Just One Night
Release Date: April 24, 2012
Blurb: He’s got one shot. Better make it naughty…
Micah’s new living arrangement with her best friend is quickly becoming unbearable. Not because Tomas isn’t a good roommate. When they’re alone, he shows her his sweet, loyal side. It’s just that he shows the rest of his parts to half the women in town. If she can’t scrape together the money for her own place soon, witnessing the aftermath of his late-night carousing is going to break her heart.
Then again, if it’s going to break anyway, maybe she should just go ahead and make a move on the man she’s loved since high school. And risk his rejection a second time.
It hasn’t been easy for Tomas to share space with the one damsel he can’t bear to see in distress. To have her within easy reach has been torture. His foster mother’s words echo in his head: a classy girl like Micah deserves more than the likes of him. But lately Micah’s been rattling his cage. If she does it one more time, she’d better be ready for the animal she awakens.
Unfortunately for him, Micah’s hot little hands are already wrapped around the bars…
Contains a Latin bad boy with twelve year’s worth of fantasies to get out of his system, and his goody-two-shoes best friend who learns that her inner bad girl likes handcuffs and spankings. Beware. This book could cause a riot since there’s only one Tomas to go around.
