Badurday- January 28, 2012- A Shameless Plug But a Bit About Idris Elba

My latest book comes out on February 7, 2012 and just became available for pre-order yesterday. It’s called Sebastian’s Salvation and it’s a contemporary interracial romantic suspense. My publisher has categorized it as steamy. As I have said here before, Idris Elba was my inspiration for the hero and as I did the final read-through, I did absolutely have him in my head as Sebastian. Sebastian fits the mold of our bad boys that we feature here (how could he not when I love them so much?). He was a Green Beret and we all know how tough those dudes can be.

Here is the link to the site. It is on sale at a reduced price until the 14th of February.


Three lives intertwine—a former Green Beret, now a painter of nude portraits tormented by the death of his comrade, an earl’s daughter, and a crazed stalker. Will the acts of the stalker force the soldier back into the life of violence which he sought to avoid?

Sebastian Hughes, wounded on a mission in Afghanistan, discovers a talent for painting nude portraits while in a rehabilitation center learning to walk again after losing part of his leg. He becomes the toast of London society and women clamor to be painted by him.

Lady Joanna Gresham, nursing a broken heart and used to getting what she wants, sets her sights on having her portrait painted by Sebastian. Once she meets him, she wants him for herself. She pursues him, intent on winning him. What she didn’t count on was a stalker who wants to harm everyone Sebastian holds dear.

Badurday – January 7, 2012- Idris Elba

Today is the first Bad-urday of the year. I thought I’d share the book trailer for my February release from Siren-Bookstrand. The story is a bi-racial romantic suspense set mostly in London. Some of the pictures in the trailer were made on my recent trip across the pond.

The actor I used as the inspiration for the hero in Sebastian’s Salvation is Idris Elba. Idris is one BAAAD dude. He plays the role  of Luther in the British series of the same name and he’s a super cop with a genius IQ. He’s darn sexy in the role as well. He also played Mumbles in RocknRolla– a Guy Ritchie movie. He’s the husband in Obsession with Beyonce Knowles. I love to watch him and recommend you check him out when you get a chance.
