The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia

In a luxurious resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia where the trees stand cloaked in fall colors, the apples and pumpkins are ripe for harvest, and pots of apple cider simmer beside the fireplace, a couple in the autumn of their lives surrender to lust and discover love.

FallNGA2For the next few days, I’ll share the beautiful fall scenery of North Georgia which is the location for my erotic contemporary romance from Liquid Silver Books, The Caretaker’s Lady. The first feature is an image of Blue Ridge Mountain in North Georgia with a short excerpt from the book. The play of light and shadow on the fall scenery is magnificent.

John stopped on the path. Cathy halted beside him.

“Close your eyes for a moment while we step onto the overlook.”

She frowned. “That requires a bit of trust.”

He squeezed her hand. “You can always trust me, Cathy.”

“Okay.” She closed her eyes and took his arm as he guided her forward a few feet.

“Open your eyes now.” She heard the excitement in his voice. Then she saw why.

The Blue Ridge Mountains lay before them in their early autumn colors. In places, the clouds obscured the sunlight, creating a chiaroscuro patchwork of brilliant color and shadow in the valleys and on the mountainsides.

“Thank you for sharing this with me, John. It’s magnificent. Pristine, as though people have never walked these mountains.”

Click to read an excerpt.Pass the grits and call me y’all. Jasmine Bloom, queen of the bodice rippers for three decades, never thought she would become a victim of writer’s block. When family stress causes Cathy Morrow, who writes as Jasmine Bloom, to miss a deadline, Blaylock Publishing accepts a mysterious invitation for Cathy to visit The Mountain Ridge Resort to revive her muse.

Divorced for two decades with three grown children and two grandsons living in her home, Cathy can’t find the inspiration she needs to write the sizzling-hot romances that gained her fame and fortune. At the resort, Cathy meets a hot maintenance worker who warms the cool nights. Will she be content to role-play his favorite scorching-hot love scenes from her novels then return home to her dull routine?

The caretaker’s job at the resort allows billionaire John Murdock to live the life he loves in the Blue Ridge Mountains and keep a centuries-old family vow. When Cathy Morrow arrives at the resort, she lights a fire he’d banked years ago. Will she look beyond his white hair and menial job to appreciate what he offers—passion with the prospect for love?

John was flirting with her. How long had it been since she’d flirted with a handsome man? Way too long. Could she play the game? Perhaps. Did she want to? Hell, yes! “No, but you’re handsome.”

“You think so? Thank you. I’m glad to hear that.”

Damn they were moving fast! “You’re welcome. Why?”

“Because when I proposition you, you won’t be too pissed off if my performance is not up to par. It’s been a while for me too.”

Oh my God! This wasn’t happening. Not to her, at least. It had been so long. “You’re going to proposition me?”

He laid his hand over hers. “Would you like for me to?”

Cover Reveal: The Caretaker’s Lady

This week I received the e-mail I’d been waiting for from Valerie, the Marketing Art Assistant at Liquid Silver Books. Check out the cover for The Caretaker’s Lady, my scorching hot contemporary romance that’s set at a high-end resort in the mountains of North Georgia. I LOVE it. This was my first older hero/heroine story and I was a bit apprehensive about how it would look and market. The artist, Kendra Egert from Creations By Kendra, nailed the hero and heroine perfectly. Kendra delivered with a touch of fall also.  Liquid Silver Books will release The Caretaker’s Lady in September.

Rita Bay Visits An Author’s Desk

Today, I (Rita Bay) am  the featured author at An Author’s Desk on my own blog. After so many guests have dropped by, it’s about time that I stepped up and bared my own author’s soul. I’m  a multi-genre writer  of romance who is happily published by Champagne Book Group (Paranormal/Fantasy), Secret Cravings Publishing (Contemporary Military), Siren BookStrand (Historical), and – most recently – a romantic comedy scorcher with Liquid Silver Books. I’ll also share a bit about my writing and work area, my current works in progress, and my upcoming books.

Rita's DesksmMY PLACE TO WRITE. The picture of my office on the right probably tells more than I intended. I write beside an antique mahogany Empire library table, kicked back in a traditional office chair with my laptop in my lap. All the nice things a mildly OCD writer needs – an antique carved soapstone pen holder, a high-tech multi-purpose lamp and a revolving desk caddy, folders for everything, binders for business, Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, and a set of  mini-filing drawers – sit on top of the desk. The bookcase contains my reference books with antique family pieces – irons, cobbler’s stand, and electrical glass insulators – serving as bookends. Not seen in the picture are two filing cabinets, a large pigeon-holed divider, and two additional bookcases.

MY WRITING. As for writing, I’m a plotter who occasionally deviates from the scene tracker when the story demands it. I’ve just finished edits for Conquering Cupid (the first story in a humorous mythological contemporary series – “Cupid’s Back in Town” contracted with Champagne Book Group) which will be released in December AND for The Caretaker’s Lady, a scorching hot contemporary romantic comedy from Liquid Silver Books which will be released in September. My current works in progress include The Alpha’s Prey, the third novella in the Lyons’ Den series with Champagne, and The Twelfth Night Queen – a Regency Christmas story.

The humorous, Greek mythology-based, contemporary erotic series “Cupid’s Back in Business” evolved from Her Teddy Bare (See cover), a sexy, humorous novella published by Champagne in their erotic series, “Aphrodite’s Island.” Check out the blurb for Conquering Cupid.

FINALHerTeddyBare_600x900Love and lust, the perfect mix for a happily ever after. When popular artist Diana Harper dumped her cheating fiancé and accepted an invitation “to attend a private event at Miss A’s island retreat to experience your most secret dreams and fondest fantasies,” her hostess gave her Teddy as an “attendant.” Despite his best efforts, Teddy is no submissive. Diana, however, plays his game for the profound passion, the best sex ever, and love that could last a lifetime.

Billionaire philanthropist Theodore Cooper “Coop” Bareston III fell in love with Diana when he saw her working out at his elite gym in New York City. He was willing to do anything to win her love, including wearing a skimpy thong in his “Teddy” role and posing nude in chains when Di’s interest in her art revived. As the sexual tension builds and passions explode, Teddy discovers he is intensely aroused by  playing the submissive to his Di’s dome.

After moving into Coop’s East Side penthouse, Diana is sucked into a world inhabited by supernatural denizens with powers beyond her imagination. Can she survive the challenges confronting her to live in Coop’s world or will she turn her back on the extraordinary destiny within her grasp?

You can read an excerpt/buy Her Teddy Bare before the series is released HERE.

Contract Announcement for The Caretaker’s Lady

I’m pleased to announce that Liquid Silver Books has contracted for The Caretaker’s Lady, a scorching hot contemporary romance that features 50-something, sexy seniors. Check out the blurb:

“Pass the grits and call me y’all?” Jasmine Bloom, queen of the bodice rippers for three decades, never thought she’d be a victim of writer’s block. When family stress causes Cathy Morrow who writes as Jasmine Bloom to miss a deadline, Blaylock Publishing accepts a mysterious invitation for Cathy to visit The Mountain Ridge Resort in the North Georgia mountains to revive her muse.

Divorced for two decades with three grown children and two grandsons living in her home on the Jersey shore, Cathy can’t find the inspiration she needs to write the sizzling hot romances that gained her fame and fortune. After a total makeover at the resort, Cathy meets a hot maintenance worker who warms the cool nights. Will she be content to role-play his favorite scorching hot love scenes from her novels, then return home to her daily routine?

The caretaker’s job at the resort allows widower John Murdock to live the life he loves in the Blue Ridge Mountains and keep a centuries-old family vow. When adorable Cathy Morrow arrives at the resort, besides igniting the staff’s curiosity about “The Mystery” of the invitation, she lights a fire he’d banked years ago. Will she look beyond his white hair and menial job to appreciate what he offers – passion with the prospect for love?
