Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family’s rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he’s not worthy of anything, let alone love.
As CEO of his company, Carrington Enterprises, Seth Burns is a take-charge kind of guy, and he is instantly smitten by the artist helping with his newest project. When he witnesses James suffer a panic attack, a protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He truly believes nothing is unobtainable—including James—if he’s willing to put in the time and effort.
James is shy and confused by Seth’s interest in him as a person. With Seth’s support, can he work through his fears to finally find the true love he deserves, or will someone finally land the crushing blow he won’t survive?
I've completed and contracted the fourth book in the Desires Entwined world, "Signs of Desire." Also, Dreamspinner has contracted my first paranormal romance (kitty shifters!). Both books with be out later this year.
In "Signs of Desire" you catch up with Simon (who you meet in "Designs of Desire") and all of James and Chase's friend, plus one of Chase's sort-of-exes (yes, you meet Adrian in "Desires' Guardian"). This story is a little different as one of the main characters is deaf and the other is heartsick. I loved writing "Signs" as much as the first three novels in the series and I can't wait to share!
"Whiskers of a Chance" is the shifter romance I mentioned above and is the story of a human and lynx shifter. Well, it's a lot more than that, but ou know what I mean. Right? It's book 1 in the Chain of Fates series, where what you see is most definitely not what you get—and yes, the series name is a pun ;) Extra kudos if anyone can tell me in the comments why Chain of Fates is a pun when connected to a series about lynx shifters.
I have many more projects on my list as well, I promise you. In fact, if you stop by my website (http://tempeste.com/projects/) or join my Facebook group – Tempeste's Temptations (https://www.facebook.com/groups/333218153541117/) you can check out my full list. More Desires Entwined, more kink, more of all sorts of fun and yummy stories coming in the next months and years (yes, the list is that long, lol).
My next project is a follow up for "Desires' Guardian" and "Signs of Desire". Yes, I said both as something happens in "Signs" that heavily links the two stories! Nope, you'll have to wait to find out what *evil cackle*
