Guest Post: Delicious Delights from Kelli Wilkins
Today, I’m sharing a bit about two of my Amber Quill Press historical/fantasy romances, A Midsummer Night’s Delights and A Midwinter Night’s Delights.
A Midsummer Night’s Delights introduced readers to newlyweds, Julian and Annabelle. They were strangers trapped in an arranged, sexless marriage. To loosen them up, Julian’s father sends them to the Marquis of Demby’s estate to attend a Midsummer Ball. (And this type of ball isn’t for dancing!)
Julian and Annabelle meet the Marquis, Vincent, and his wife, Sabrina. Over the course of their visit, they learn how to open up and explore their sexuality. When they attend the Midsummer Ball, they shed their inhibitions while indulging in their wildest fantasies.
This isn’t your typical historical/fantasy romance - anything (and everything!) goes in this sizzling story - same sex frolics (M/M and F/F), ménage, group encounters, and naughty games.
The book was a lot of fun to write. I loved creating the characters and giving Julian and Annabelle free reign to explore all aspects of their sexuality, secret desires, and deepest fantasies. Readers and reviewers fell in love with the book and the characters and asked for a sequel, so I gave them one!
A Midwinter Night’s Delights picks up six months after the first book. (If you haven’t read the first story, that’s okay – each novella stands alone as an individual read. And yes, this book is just as hot – if not hotter – than the first one.)
In the sequel, we discover that Annabelle and Julian have taken what they’ve learned and gone wild. Ever since the summer ball, they have been overindulging in all sorts of erotic activities and are more than eager to give in to their desires whenever (and wherever) the mood strikes – even if it’s at a formal dinner party. Needless to say, Julian’s father sends them back to Vincent’s estate to be disciplined and learn self-control.
A Midwinter Night’s Delights is more intense than the first book. From the outset, readers know that Julian and Annabelle are learning lessons and being disciplined – but it’s all for their own good. I sprinkled in some B/D/S/M throughout the story to make things even more interesting. It was fun to explore a different side to the games that take place at the estate house and watch how the characters reacted as they received their ‘punishments’ throughout the book. Readers wanted to know about Sabrina’s background, so I included a bit about how she came to know Vincent and learned all about these naughty games.
Readers enjoyed the story and were wondering about a third book. Stay tuned! Ultimate Night’s Delights is the third (and final) chapter in this erotic saga. It’s scheduled for release on September 2, 2013. Here’s a sneak peek at the plot:
Ultimate Night’s Delights
Julian and Annabelle are back for the final ball!
The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer and Midwinter Balls changed Julian and Annabelle forever. Freed from their inhibitions, they now help other shy couples explore their sexual urges and hidden desires. But life on Vincent and Sabrina’s estate is anything but tranquil. The notorious Duke of Blackwell has discovered the secret about the naughty balls and is out to destroy the marquis.
Vincent refuses to deny the rumors about the “anything goes” parties he hosts, and turns to his friends for assistance. Together, they devise a plan to defeat the Black Duke…and still find time for a few erotic games.
