Simple Need

Dumped via a text message, Elise has had a bad day. To make it worse, she finds out her former boyfriend is actually separated from his wife, and is now going back to her. This is news. Elise was thinking future, but now she feels like a failure. Determined to try something different from her previous forays into the romantic world she goes to an unfamiliar bar and meets a man who fits what she needs.

Vinter’s naughty streak is just what Elise needs, and she embraces a new part of herself that was really there all along. If you like a hot read with a little vengeance toward an ex-boyfriend thrown in, you’ll love this quick little gem.

Length: Novella
Exotica Line

Vinter is not your typical businessman. Tattoos, piercings and not a suit and tie in sight. One-third owner of a bar and a tattoo parlor along with being a bassist in a band, Vinter comes and goes as he pleases. He likes his beer cold, his music hard and his women scorching hot. Until he’s knocked off his game by a suburban doll he can’t stop wanting.
Elise needs a change. In men. The buttoned-up businessmen she’s been dating leave a lot to be desired—in romance, in respect and most definitely in sex. A recent text message from her now ex-lover drives Elise into a popular bar on the outside of town, where she meets one of its owners. He’s just the kind of man she’s never had and definitely the kind she’s always fantasized about. Big, bad and oh so naughty.
Unexpected tenderness. Unimaginable lust. Being dumped has never felt so damn good.
