AcceptanceFinal200   ACCEPTANCE

This is my newest release from Decadent Publishing’s The Edge Series. This series takes readers right to the “edge” of something very special, something sizzling hot between the characters. A perfect hot summer read!

My two heroes have fallen into that crazy, over-committed type of life that many of us find ourselves in. It has become all work and no play…until they meet and something special ignites between them. But are a few days of nearly out of control sex enough for Chase Barrington and Rico Sanchez? Or can it lead to something more?

Title:  Acceptance

Genre:  Contemporary, erotic romance, gay, multicultural

    Mmmm! That cake does look better than sex (or at least a close second). Acceptance looks like a fantastic read, as well, Starla! Congrats on the new release!

    The cake looks yummy! I’m going to give it a try. I would think all winners would want the book. I love your stories!!!!

    The cake looks great but not sure there is any food that is better than sex…of course, there could be times…;) The soap is cute but would definitely choose the ebook.

    Thanks and blessings,

      Thanks, Cat, for stopping by. I totally understand about the sex vs cake thing. Still, this is darn good.

    I’ve had this cake, and it really IS delicious! That is great testimony coming from a diehard lover of chocolate cake who doesn’t care for shredded coconut. Better than sex? Why choose? Have some after. Lol!

    And the choice between a book and a duck soap? Bwahahaha! The duck is darling, but books rule. A book about out of control sex – oh yeah!
