Great book for less than a buck: Ravishing Rose by @krispiewrites #99cents #steamy #eroticromance

Title: Ravishing Rose - a naughty novella: Strangers-to-lovers costume party adventure (The South & Sexy Series Book 6)

Author: Kris Pearson

Genre: Steamy Romance

Book Blurb:

In this stand-alone New Zealand romance, one shy girl is about to start living!

Francesca Ellison is swept off to an A-list party in a concealing mask, a decadent costume and sex-shop panties. There she meets the pirate, Captain Cool. Frankie tells him her name is Rose because for once she intends behaving very badly. The Captain outdoes her at every turn.

As sky-rockets scream skyward and guests start to demolish the party venue, Frankie loses her panties and her inhibitions. ‘Rose’ is thoroughly ravished, and the Captain gets more (and less) than he hoped for.

This naughty shortie is around fifty pages long - just right for a quick bedtime read.

RAVISHING ROSE is part of The Wellington Series.

Mike Ellison checked his Rolex as he bounded down the staircase. “Ready Sis?” he called.

Frankie rose from her seat in the hall alcove, tall, imperious, and spectacular. “More than ready.”

Mike’s eyes widened. “You’ll do,” he said. “You’ll definitely do. Poor old Bella, missing out on wearing that.”

“Yes, it’s a gorgeous costume, and she even insisted I had her new boots.” She did a quick twirl to show her brother the full effect, and then tipped her head on one side and checked out his tuxedo and swirling cape in return. “You look exotic too.”

Mike grinned, and she gasped at his suddenly revealed vampire teeth. “Don’t they feel strange? Sharp?”

“Bearable. I’ll probably take them out after a while. And lose the mask,” he added, producing a diamond-patterned silver one from his pocket.

“I thought we were all supposed to be anonymous?”

“Frankie, I paid a couple of thousand bucks each for these tickets. I want everyone in Wellington to know I’m there.”

“Showing off your money?”

“Supporting an excellent cause.”

“And showing off your money,” she repeated, enjoying the confidence the costume gave her. Twelve years older than her, he’d been a somewhat distant figure for the last decade, rocketing up the business ladder in London while she’d been a teenager back home at the end of the world.

“Letting them see I’m worth a dollar or two,” he agreed, tucking the mask away and tossing the car keys up and catching them again before he ushered her out.

Why is your featured book a must-read?

Ah - naughty Rose! She was fun to write. She started life as something completely different, but American agent Nalini Akolekar from the SpencerHill Literary Agency told me I should divide off the first twelve thousand words of my current story, write it a new ending, and release it as an erotic novella.

What!? Not what I had in mind at all, but after a bit of thought I could see she was right. I was able to tell her the outcome eventually because she was a special guest at our Romance Writers' Conference in New Zealand.

So where did Rose come from? She was inspired by an amazing costume from the World of WearableArts (WOW) Show here in Wellington. I hope you can see this in the collage? WOW is the most startling spectacle. We get entries from all over the world these days, and as long as it can be displayed on a human body, anything goes. The 'Bizarre Bra' class is always very popular! Go HERE for a closer look.

Then I found the chocolate panties in a magazine, and my brain switched into overdrive. Rose and Captain Cool started to misbehave bigtime, and there was no holding them back.

The demolition party was for real. Years ago we had friends who were moving out of their very old rented property so demolition could begin the following week. They had a big party on Saturday night, and seeing the building was coming down, the party guests made an early start. It probably helped that we all worked in television, and were no doubt well fuelled by drink.... So we ripped and tore and smashed and bashed, and it was memorable.

Author Biography:

I love words, and I use them to make the world a happier place by creating people who are perfect for each other – although maybe they can’t see that to start with!

I began writing at my local radio station in New Zealand. After living in Italy and London I returned home and worked in TV, radio again, several advertising agencies, and then spent happy years as a retail ad manager. Totally hooked on fabrics, I followed this by surprising everyone and going into business with my husband as a curtain installer and working for some of the capital city’s top designers. Good for my body, and it freed up my brain to write fiction. In twenty years I haven’t fallen off my ladder once through drifting into romantic dreams, but I’ve certainly seen many beautiful homes and met wonderful people, and I may just have stolen glimpses of them for the books. (I didn’t say that, did I?)

If you love contemporary romance in exotic settings, that’s what I write. They're mostly sexy stories about couples who fall in love and into bed along the way, just like real people do. I’m the author of eighteen novels, three of which were finalists in New Zealand’s Clendon Award. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but some make up linked series. I hope you enjoy them all.

These include the billionaire beach stories about the wealthy Wynn family in Scarlet Bay - Summer Sparks, Summer Secrets, and Summer Spice. And now I’m having fun with cozy mysteries! I’m onto the third of these. My lady sleuth Merry Summerfield leads a fun-filled life in Drizzle Bay with a cast of eccentric characters and some not-too-gory murders.
