Can a person be bought for love? You don’t know Jack!

Jack Duncan is a ruthless, egotistical, cold hearted son of a bitch and that’s only in the boardroom.  When it comes to sex and romance the only word he expects to hear is yes!  Sinfully sexy, he could manipulate anyone to follow his lead and he wasn’t above pretending to be something he was not to get what he wanted.

Emily Yates was sweet, young, and innocent.  The perfect pawn for a man like Jack to use.  She was a blank slate that he could mold into the woman he wanted by his side for his political career.  From the moment she walked into his office, he was determined to have her in his bed, in his life, and as his perfect little pet. Jack poured on the charm and Emily saw the man he wanted her to see, but would she discover out who he really was before her heart was destroyed?  You don’t know Jack.  He gets what he wants.  

Even if Emily discovered his true nature, would she already be too far gone to walk away?  And would he let her leave if she tried? When a man like Jack decided you’re his, all you can do is hope to survive the aftermath of whatever plans he has.

That smile of his.  How could anyone in the world resist the charm of it?  “All I really want is to get to know you better.”  The thought of him teaching me sent a strange thrill through my body that I didn’t understand.

“And you will.  Tell me you’ll let me show you my world.  I promise you won’t regret it.”

His eyes met mine and the intensity in that dark blue stare, made me catch my breath.  When his long finger reached up to caress my cheek, I was pretty sure I’d let him do whatever he wanted with me.  I nodded. He kissed me tenderly and the breath I’d been holding expelled on a sigh.  

“The things I will show you.” Jack pulled me into his lap and I was so startled that I froze.  When he kissed me again though, I couldn’t object. 

Wrapping my arms around his neck I surrendered to that kiss.  The rest of the world faded to black and he opened my mind to passion.  I didn’t want to let go and apparently he didn’t either since his arms snaked around my waist holding me tightly.

I felt the press of his erection against my bottom, and it terrified and excited me at the same time.  Stiffening in his hold, I felt him release me.  “You make me feel things I shouldn’t.”  He lifted me off his lap and placed me carefully beside him in the seat.

I didn’t know how to rationalize his words, because I was still dealing with the shock of knowing he wanted me that way.  It was pretty heady.  This gorgeous man being turned on by my kiss?  I kept my eyes lowered and felt my cheeks burn.

“So incredibly untainted.” His soft growl did something to my body I couldn’t express.  Jack reached out his hand to a button that lowered the partition window from the driver.  “To the yacht, now!”

The way he talked to Dante was so demeaning that I found it hard to resonate the demanding man with the one that had kissed me so tenderly.   Jack Duncan was a very confusing man.

The tick in his jaw showed that he was angry, and I wasn’t sure why.  “Did I do something wrong?” The thought of disappointing him didn’t sit well with me, and I felt really insecure.  Maybe he didn’t like the way I kissed?

“Little one the only thing wrong is I want to make love to you and I don’t think you’re ready for me yet.” He chuckled and shook his head.  “Forgive me?”

I know people say you should be professional when discussing your background, but that's just not who I am in real life.  I'm a mother, wife, and author. Readers, I consider my friends, because you're sharing my imagination and that makes us closer than just two strangers!  I have always felt that I don't write a story as much as it writes me.  Characters consume my mind until I get so tired of listening to them in my head, I put them down on paper (computer would be more accurate these days).

I started publishing books in 2009, because honestly I was tired of keeping these stories to myself.  I was working as a Respiratory Therapist in 2008 when I was laid off, and I had tons of free time.  My youngest son was still at home in those days, so when he napped I'd write.  My husband and I made the conscious decision that I wouldn't go back to work until he started school.  Then the writing career took off.  I was making a better living staying home writing books, so I never returned to the workforce.  These days I do what I love, and have time to do all the things with my kids that a working parent normally can't.  It's been a huge blessing!  

Keep up with me on any of my social media links, I promise I'll return the favor!

Press Release - Romance Book Club by Michelle Hughes

Scandalous secrets from a Romance Book Club revealed
What happens behind the scenes at a Romance Book Club?

May 15, 2013 - Verbena, AL -  Ladies gathering for a weekly book club meeting discussing romance novels might not seem like headline news, but what those women decide to do because of their curiosity just might shock you.  With the latest boom of Mommy Porn titles filling up the bestseller book charts, author Michelle Hughes decided to blow the cover on how far some women were willing to take their obsession with the new fad.  Long walks on the beach were not included in the information Hughes chose to highlight.

In her new novel, Romance Book Club released by Tears of Crimson Books, Hughes explores the sexual adventures of a fictional character who finds more heat in a dungeon than behind the pages in a book.  The author claims the experiences are based on reality, while clarifying that the names and places have been altered to protect identities.  Hughes would not divulge the true location of the fictional book club the story was based upon, citing the need for privacy for people who participated in activities that are still not fully accepted in many communities.

After arriving at a dungeon club to research the real lifestyle of BDSM, Jessie meets the owner and is invited on a personal tour of sensual debauchery.  For a young woman with no previous experience in this setting, the leather clad lifestyle intrigues her.  She discovers a world that surpasses all the parameters in the books she's read on the subject, and is forced to make a decision on whether to step into this situation, or keep her interest hidden behind the written word.  The subject matter is watered down to fit into the romance category, but the portrayal of kink is embedded behind the flowery words giving a unique insight into this greatly exaggerated topic.

Hughes stated that the misconceptions about the lifestyle, and the people that choose to pursue it, is inaccurate at best in current pop culture books.  The majority of fiction books released under this genre show emotional issues of characters that encouraged them to seek out the sadomasochist side to find fulfillment.  Hughes claims that this novel was created to show that normal, everyday people without a traumatic childhood can also find satisfaction in this exploration of passion when they enter their adult lives. 

Tears of Crimson Books is an independent publishing company founded by author Michelle Hughes.  To date, several bestselling books have been released under this umbrella. Authors interested in working with Tears of Crimson Books can contact Hughes through the Tears of Crimson website
