Hi everyone, today I’m excited to introduce you to talented Australian author, Mel Teshco who is writing for the new Tule’s latest imprint, Eros. The Eros imprint is all about hot…hot, hot and erotica and Mel’s new Eros release, Lady in Red certainly notches up the heat.
Like many authors, Mel is first and foremost, a dreamer. She’s also a mother of three gorgeous girls and lives with a semi-patient husband, two fat horses, one crazy Belgian shepherd and three cats who run the house. Mel claims writing keeps her sane and I am so glad she continues to find the time to do it because her new story has just the right kick of dreaminess and sexy heat to keep readers entertained!
I invited Mel to stop by and talk to us about her new story. Please help me give her a warm welcome!
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes in the call girl industry? What entices young women into the trade? And why some women love their work while other women feel as if they have no choice?
Ever since the movie Pretty Woman came out, I’ve been fascinated by the culture, and have read some enthralling non-fiction books on the subject. Having said that, the heroine in my story is entirely from my own imagination!
Meet Brandy—Kate Matthews in her ordinary life—the heroine in Lady in Red, releasing Feb 2nd. Brandy loves her job, but billionaire philanthropist and client, Blaine Leo Waymann, threatens everything she’s worked for by tempting her into his own world and putting everything at risk, including her heart.
Brandy hasn’t had an easy childhood. Bullied as a child, and losing everyone she’s ever loved, she’s not about to give into Blaine’s demands. Not without a fight. Not if there’s even a minute possibility she’ll get hurt. Being a call girl gives her the financial security she craves, and no one will take that away from her. Not even when she begins to question her job of choice.
I loved writing this story, so much so that I’m making a series, tentatively titled: VIP Agency, for each of Brandy’s call girl friends. In future stories you’ll also get to know Scarlet, Tiffany and Savannah. And perhaps one other call girl who is not yet introduced into book one. More news on her later…
In the meantime, grab a glass of red (or your liquid of choice) snuggle up on your armchair or under the covers of your bed and please enjoy the Lady in Red.
Thank you, Mel, for sharing with us! Readers, if you like romances with a lot of heat, do be sure to download a copy of Mel’s Lady In Red! As always, I’ve also got a fun treat for one of you.
