Who says there’s no humor in BDSM? Wait til you meet January Gallimore. I am so excited to share with you my erotic comedy, SMITTEN, live now on Amazon!

January Gallimore has arrived at a crossroad in life.

A short-lived scandal that had made her the darling of the BDSM community did little to damage her status as America’s sweetheart. However, her career starring in romantic comedies hasn’t given her any insights into figuring out her own love life.

For five years, January shared a long-distance love affair with French rock legend, Etienne Marceaux. Their relationship is passionate but comfortable. Caught in the whirlwind between New York and Paris, they indulge in stolen moments in between their chaotic celebrity lives.

Although Etienne certainly knows how to entertain her with his Dominance, January realizes that something is missing. Now a thirty-something actress, she wonders how long her career will endure, and she questions some of the decisions she’s made.

On a spontaneous trip with her best friend to Provence, January encounters a chance meeting with a younger Englishman, Nigel Hereford-Smyth. With his naivete and somewhat awkward aristocratic ways, Nigel, nevertheless, sweeps January off her Louboutin pumps.

As they romp about the French countryside, January tutors her young suitor on the finer points of BDSM, and Nigel unwittingly leads January on a deep exploration of what really matters in her life. While she allows herself to revel in the bliss of a possible new man in her life, she also realizes that Nigel carries his own set of baggage.

Forced to leave Nigel by her filming schedule, January returns to the hustle of Hollywood, only to find her confusion mounting.

Will she choose Etienne, who makes her body sizzle…or Nigel, whose charm and manners leave her SMITTEN?

SMITTEN is the first book in the “Paris Après Minuit” Series, which will include a range of erotic standalones, all set in the City of Light and surrounds.

I had so much fun writing this book. January is not your typical submissive. She’s played the scene for far too long. She knows what she wants. And she’s not afraid to ask for it. Confident and smart, she also appreciates the every day foibles life tosses her way.

I also enjoyed writing the setting for the book, which chronicles January’s journey from Paris to Provence. I love visiting France, and I am obsessed with French pop culture.

Enjoy and Happy Reading!

SMITTEN is available exclusively at Amazon and on Kindle Unlimited. Grab it for 99 cents for a limited time.
