a truly WICKED idea!

Reckless Exposure --by Anne Rainey
OUT NOW from eRedSage.com

Good girls shouldn’t play with bad boys...

Cover model, Lucy Fleming is ready to begin the next phase of her life. She wants to settle down, become a wife and mother. She’s going to have to leave her wild and reckless roommate/lover in order to make it happen. But if her heart aches just thinking about life without him, how will she ever find the strength to put words to action?

As fashion photographer, Rand Miller listens to all the reasons why his sexy lover must move out of not only his apartment but also his life, he decides to give her the going away party of a lifetime. The list of party goodies includes: massage oil, margaritas and their mysterious neighbor, Trey Madison.

But when dawn creeps over the horizon, will Rand be able to watch the only woman capable of taming his wicked ways walk out of his life forever?

******************************


For those of you who don't know. The hot, wet guy below is Rand Miller from my current release, Reckless Exposure. When I saw that body, that sandy-blond hair and five o'clock shadow, I knew. I just knew he was my bad boy photographer.

I've written about other hunky heroes, but Rand is special. He grew up in the Bronx. His dad left him when he was just a kid and his mother was...well, let's just say she was NOT June Cleaver. Needless to say, Rand has a very difficult time expressing his feelings. But no one deserves love more than this guy!

So what does a man who has pretty much seen it all do with a sweet little country girl from Ohio? Well, being the ornery hottie that he is, Rand has lots of naughty ideas! LOL You'll just have to read the story if you want to find out more about Lucy and Rand. ;-)
























However, I'd be fibbing if I told you the idea for this story was all mine. The truth is, Reckless Exposure is just one installment in a truly wicked SERIES. Thanks to the fabulous Liane Gentry Skye for coming up with the idea and Red Sage Publishing for supporting it.

There are several menage stories by some really wonderful authors. Liane Gentry Skye, Alice Gaines, Titania Ladley, Mia Varano, Calista Fox, and many more! Yum, huh?

Each story in the series is crafted to give the reader lots of HOTNESS as well as a very satisfying conclusion. But don't listen to me, read the series blurb and see for yourself!


Three Kinds of Wicked Website
Beyond the bounds of pleasure, a single chance for redemption...


Trey is a time strider, sworn to guard the fates of mortal couples destined to earn humanity immortality. When a covetous goddess doses Trey with an aphrodisiac, he acts on his secret yearning for a mate to call his own. But the only thing worse than falling in love with a destined mortal is making love with one. When Trey loses his heart to Sage, a mortal woman destined to love another, the fate of all humanity hangs in the balance.

Now Trey must stride through a fractured timeline, doing whatever it takes to reunite the couples his actions have torn apart. Only then can he earn a final chance to help Sage save humanity from the evil that covets their very souls. But even if he is successful, can Sage forgive him the carnal journey it took for him to help save her world?

***
So, Trey has to help troubled couples. Lucy and Rand just happen to be one of those couples.

Trey, of course, gets his own story, or stories rather, as well. The first of which can be found here.


So, that's it in a nutshell. What do you think? Do you like the idea of a series of deliciously steamy menage stories? And do you think Trey deserves to be forgiven?

And because I've been in a contest mood lately, anyone who comments today is entered to win a PRINT copy of my Samhain release, "Seduce Me", which contains the first two stories in my Vaughn series. :)

Winning books is always good. My budget is stretching pretty well, as I review for free books, so I'm making progress in eliminating my tbb list and saving my money. On th the other question in the blog: does he deserve another chance? I think everyone deserves a second chance at love and happiness, so yeah, I guess he does too.

Love the sound of Trey's story. These all sound just yummy.

loves2read said...

I am loving the series idea. I mean, who wouldn't? A hot sexy man that gets to travel through time, hooking up meant-to-be couples and righting the wrong he did. I love it; the idea, the hot, wet...ummmm...oooh....guy. Cannot wait for them all!

loves2read said...

P.S. Thought I'd also say that I love the cover of Reckless Exposure and the storyline. Now that I know the backstory to it, makes me want to grab the plastic and head over to the nearest selling site.

Anne Rainey said...

Eva--I couldn't agree more! Thanks for commenting!

Regina--There are some pretty talented authors writing stories for this series. Made me feel a little out of my league there! LOL

Anne Rainey said...

loves2read--I just LOVE the way you summed it all up! And the cover IS really gorgeous. The wonderful Rae Monet designed it! :)

Stephanie said...

Hi Anne,

What a Terrific concept! Not only does out series hero have to overcome personal conflict but he has to make amends with the conflict he has caused others as well. And in such lovely erotic ways :D The time travel is a great twist too! Thanks for sharing the rest of the series with us.

Thanks for a great contest!

flchen1 said...

Whoa... yum, Anne! I loved learning more about the Wicked series! Sounds like a bunch of stories I'll need to read!! And as for whether Trey deserves forgiveness, I think that remains to be seen, BUT I do think he deserves the chance to earn it. Everyone deserves a second chance! ;)

Congrats on being part of such a delicious series!

Molly Daniels said...

Anne, I'm just now getting to your books, and RE sounds EXCELLENT! And I love Trey's backstory!

Caffey said...

Oh it would be a joy to be in the contest for this print! Thanks bunches! Love Anne's books so thrilled to see an other release! I think ERedSage does so good on the covers, makes you want to know more about them! Neat how you pull the characters to other authors books like you done with Rand! Did you work with Anne to give her anymore info about Rand or I bet she got it just from the feel reading RECKLESS EXPOSURE. So love Rand already!

ddurance said...

What's not to love about a series of steamy menage stories? lol

Trey should definitely be forgiven. After all, everybody is better off for what he did. Sometimes, the best things come when we make mistakes.

This story combines two of my favorites! Menage & A Series!! Yay! And your inspiration for your character, YUMMY! I just love conflicted heroes! And I think he has some very redeeming qualities and should be forgiven. Sounds like he is doing his best to right his wrongs. This sounds like a great read!

Woohoo! Happy reading, Eva S and Kerry! Thanks so much, Anne!

Liane Gentry Skye said...

Oh man, I totally missed the party. That's what i get for being supermom on a deadline *g*. Yep, I'm just not spit-shining Trey's end story. So, does he get forgiven? Hmmmmmm....maybe. ;) But i will say this. Trey's final story is a steampunk. Or would that be...steamypunk?

Great post, Anne. It was so much fun to watch all these stories grow up!
