A Little Bit Of Housecleaning And A New Cover!

I'm in the middle of the second giveaway hop, the Small Blogs, Big Giveaways Hop, and it's been super hectic here at Casa Bisset.  I did an interview with Nat from Reading Romances last night that was just a blast!  We did it in real time online, and I laughed the whole time.  Thanks for a terrific interview, Nat!

The random.org thing worked its mojo and determined that the winners for the copy of Vampire Dreams are: 

Pam S. and The Jeep Diva

And the winner of  copies of Vampire Dreams and Stolen Destiny, along with a $10 gift card from Amazon is:

Talina

Congratulations to all of the winners!  And thank you to everyone who participated in the 18 & Over Giveaway Hop.  I thought it was a great success, and I'm looking forward to the next one in September.  Thanks to Laurie and Amber for hosting this one!

 
And now for the unveiling of the new cover for Love's Master, due out in July.


Thanks to Elaina Lee, the cover artist who I can't say enough wonderful things about!  And yes, that's the ever delicious Jimmy Thomas.  Love's Master involves some light BDSM, so this pic was perfect. Here's a blurb about the book, which I plan to release in mid-July.

23 year old Lily finds herself widowed and forced to live with her brother and his family, including his eight year old son William, who is nothing short of a terror.  Sure she cannot go another day with his behavior, she begins to search for a new nanny and tutor for her nephew but with little success.  When she happens across an advertisement in the Times that seems to be the answer to her problem, she is set on a path that will take her where she's never been before.  Victorian England is a place of strict social codes, and the world she enters is strictly forbidden for a women of her social stature. But what she finds awakens desires in her she never knew existed.

Her guide in this world is a man named Kadar, and the feelings he stirs in Lily threaten to change her forever.  However, Victorian society is never far away, and her brother intends on seeing his sister remarried and settled into a home near him in Regent's Park.  Lily will have to choose between Kadar,who makes her feel more alive than she ever believed she could, and Captain Mason Danvers, the gentleman who can offer her security and comfort for the rest of her life. 

I'm very excited about this book.  I got to do a good amount of research into everything from spanking, flogging, and cat o' nine tails (and other BDSM varieties) to dishes native to Afghanistan (which are delicious!).  It was incredibly fun to write, and I hope readers enjoy this second novella in my erotic trilogy set in Victorian England.  The last novella, Masquerade, will be released in late August.
