THE NEW RAKES – Out now!
Hi all! It’s lovely to be back here on Lust Bites, and I’m very excited to bring you a peek of my second novel, The New Rakes, which is out now in the UK. (Okay, nearly now. Tomorrow. If you order it now, they might even slip a sneaky one in the post this very afternoon.)
So, what’s it all about? Well, I wanted the strapline: ‘Sex and sex and rock n roll’, but the editor sensibly went with ‘She’s got a lust for life’.
Here’s the blurb:
The New Rakes are known for the hot, dirty electro music they play in basement gigs all over the city, but lead singer Kara has ambitions beyond underground success.
Fuelled by her sexy performances and the love/hate relationship with her guitarist Tam, the band is poised on the brink of stardom. And when Mike Greene, the charismatic head of a record company, offers The New Rakes a deal, it seems all their hopes are about to be realised.
But Kara and Mike have history - and this time he wants more than a professional relationship. Kara is seduced by his glamorous promises and despite the attempts of Lina, his manipulative ex-girlfriend, she becomes Mike's lover.
As she gets tangled in a web of sex, power and deceit, Kara learns the hard way what success really means. Will she have to choose between the limelight and true love?
What else can I say ... I think the book is very, very dirty. Hopefully dirtysweet. And hopefully intense.
I’m patently no use at writing promotional copy. Which is why I made a short film instead. Are you sitting comfortably? Voila!
(No paper dolls were harmed during the making of this movie. Well, not much. I glued them back together afterwards.)
Lastly, here’s a wee snippet:
She shoved him up against the white-painted breezeblocks with a force that made him raise an eyebrow and smile at her, even as she was slipping a hand inside the waistband of his trousers and groping for his cock. The shaft sprung up to meet her fingers, plump and promising and already leaking a little drop of pre-come.
It was always a slight shock, feeling Tam’s prick in her hand – like discovering an old friend in an obscene pose. Which was exactly the situation, she decided, letting him grip her wrists and pull them up, swinging her round until she was the one with the hard scrape of the wall behind her.
‘My turn, I think,’ he said, sinking to his knees in front of her and burying his face in her lap. Through the thin fabric of her skirt, the heat of his breath scorched her pussy, turning her molten and making her thankful for the hard wall at her back.
Meanwhile she could feel the wiry strength of his fingers working their way up her legs, pawing at her skin like a cat working its claws. He pushed her clothes aside, shoving her skirt up and tugging her knickers down simultaneously to reveal the light fuzz of her pubic hair and the little deep pink bud of her clit, which he kissed, softly.
