Guest Author Tina Donahue

A Warm Welcome 
to Guest Author Tina Donahue

And now for something a bit different on Gail's Place. I am thrilled to have Tina Donahue visit my blog today. She is a fellow Ellora's Cave author, and has written a series of delightful erotic contemporary novels. The newest, Seven Sensuous Days, is soon to be released and it looks to be a spicy hot read. Tina is offering a give-away, so be sure to check out the details at the end of this post.

Available at: Ellora’s Cave  
Release: March 5



Blurb for Seven Sensuous Days:

At an erotic auction, she’s his to bid on…to take…to command.

The night’s sultry, filled with carnal promise as Tessa participates in an agency event to raise money for charity. She’s chained and bared—as women were once displayed for a sultan’s harem—her sweet looks and full figure offered to the wealthy and powerful men.
Among them is Logan. To him, Tessa is so different from his late wife, the seemingly perfect female who cruelly stole his hope and future. Wanting only to forget and have a good time, he wins Tessa, demanding she be his in every way possible, engaging in all wanton acts, though not only for an evening…for seven sensuous days at his secluded Virginia estate.
A provocative proposal with such a dangerously virile man.
A week that changes everything, with Tessa’s exquisite vulnerability and Logan’s suddenly unquenchable desire more than either bargained for.

The Series:

My Appointment with Pleasure series are loosely connected stories about women who know what they want, and the men who’ll risk everything to have them. At the agency, pleasure is the first order of business for the elite clients and their high-priced escorts. There are no restrictions on carnal appetites. Evenings are filled with wicked fantasies and sensual delights where nothing, especially shameless desire, is off limits.
Claiming Magique, book one, opened the series. Magique is no ordinary call girl, which Hunt soon discovers. After one evening with her, he’s hooked, and he moves heaven and earth to make her his own.
Losing Control, book two, introduces us to Catherine. At a District party she meets Tim, Hunt’s friend from Claiming Magique. Taken with him, as he is with her, Catherine doesn’t reveal she’s a call girl. She wants Tim to desire her for the woman she really is. Of course, she’s playing with fire by not telling him the truth, but that’s what makes this romance so moving…and hot.
Illicit Intent, book three, features Guy and Joel, two male escorts for the agency. When Piper’s friend books them for Piper’s birthday…wow. Piper’s never the same. She wants more, more, and still more. Of course, there is one little problem. She works for the FBI and her dad’s a top cop in the District.
Throughout these stories, the one constant is Ronnie, the agency’s owner. Her blossoming love with Wallace, her chauffeur, has led many fans to ask me to write their story. J

Maybe next time. For now, it’s Tessa and Logan’s turn in Seven Sensuous Days.
