Susan’s Featured New Release


I’m home from a couple of days of guest blogging. Ahh, this place is starting to feel like home, albeit one that still needs some paint in the walls. And furniture.

So to speak.

Let’s celebrate being home by talking about author Rhonda Leigh Jones. Her book, The Maestro’s Butterfuly, was lucky enough to be the first author published by new e-publisher Ravenous Romance, and I’m lucky enough to know (and like) the woman, so…

I asked her the standard question: What song makes you think of your book?

Her answer was short, sweet, and intriguing:

Song: “I Want To Be Adored” by Stone Roses. It just fits Claudio so well. He’s so wonderfully arrogant.

Here’s the blurb for The Maestro’s Butterfly:

The Maestro’s Butterfly by Rhonda Leigh Jones

Miranda O’Connell has just made a dangerous bet with her mysterious music teacher that will change her life forever – that she can stay at his estate for 30 days and still walk away.

She doesn’t know Claudio du Fresne is a vampire who keeps human slaves to feed from and use sexually, or that he is quick to punish with a sound spanking. Or that he has secretly brought his ruthless brother in on the bet.

Victoire “Jack” du Fresne wants a piece of the action. He will help Claudio ensure the survival of his risqué stage show, if Claudio agrees to his terms. If Miranda decides to stay after 30 days, she becomes Claudio’s property. If she decides to leave, she becomes Jack’s.

Those 30 days will open Miranda to a world of sexual possibility and dark desire, where fear and lust become one. If she can handle the intensity. Will she fall in love with the kinky vampire, le Maestro Claudio du Fresne…or will she escape the confines of his estate for the dashing, dangerous charms of his brother?

And here’s the YouTube link to the song(although now that I’m here on WordPress, I can probably figure out how to embed vids, huh?).
