Why We Collaborated on The Venture Capitalist – #ASMSG #KU #IR/MC

eBook Cover - TVC - Final
Tristan’s Point of View Is Here!

Why LaVie and I Had To Write This Story

LaVie EnRose and I teamed up to do this story because she is going solo with Double Switch, and because Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever fans got everything from Keisha’s point of view until Exit Strategy.

Then, of course, some fans were not pleased with the manner in which Tristan was presented in Exit Strategy because his point of view was in third rather than first person. In The Venture Capitalist, fans get to be inside Tristan’s head. They know everything he’s thinking and feeling, and will get that same treatment with The Venture Capitalist Part II which will be Tristan’s POV of Exit Strategy.

LaVie has some of the best ideas and I look forward to collaborating with her again. We are both working on solo projects, and hers are with other publishers, so please be patient. She and I both work full-time jobs and write part-time, but we’re writing as fast as we possibly can!

FYI Jungle Fever Readers: The Venture Capitalist (The Jungle Fever story from Tristan White’s POV, Part I), introduces readers to LaVie EnRose as the writer who will continue the series with Double Switch and In the Paint. LaVie wanted to do something like Grey before delving into the new books. The story narrative is all in Tristen’s head as well as his interactions with Princess Danai, Nathan, and of course Keisha.

The Venture Capitalist II
By LaVie EnRose & LV Lewis

Tristan White thought he was the king of the exit strategy, but Keisha Beale has turned that idea on its head. There is not much time to reflect on the fact that they both have an anxiety disorder before she ends their unorthodox arrangement with two words.

Dominant to his core, Tristan launches one final, desperate appeal to make her stay, but to no avail. Nothing he says or does can dissuade her. Is it the resurfacing of her anxiety episodes, or the feelings she’s developed that he can’t return that makes her hell-bent on leaving him?

Separation brings about its own set of difficulties. His need for control doesn’t allow him to step aside and let his security team handle the credible threat that develops from her association with him. Tristan jumps in with both feet—a move that together with his secrets could prove detrimental to a lasting, loving relationship.

His Every Touch Cover

M.J. Kane’s “Nobody’s Business” – Book 4 of The Butterfly Memoirs

First of all, I want to say thank you to L.V. for letting me drop by and share a little bit about my latest release, the fourth novel in The Butterfly Memoirs series, Nobody’s Business!

I’d like to introduce you to the female lead character, Kai Malone, a bi-racial firefighter who loves her job. In this brief excerpt, she’s at work, doing her duty of preparing dinner for the station. While she cooks, she has a conversation with her best friend on the job, Lopez. Enjoy!

 

Excerpt:

 

Working out of Firehouse 19 was a dream come true in more ways than one. Having a Malone stationed at the firehouse for the past thirty years was part of my family’s history. My being the first female firefighter at the station, or even in my family, made it that more special.

Following in the footsteps of my grandfather and uncle had been my dream. My parents, on the other hand, were not happy about it. Neither was my sister. For the longest time, I stood out as being different in my family. I was even taller than most females in my family.

My father was a career postman, my mother a third generation florist. Kelli had chosen to follow in our mother’s footsteps, but branched out to focus on the interior decorator aspect, which went hand in hand with mom’s business.

As a teen, I trained at my mother’s and grandmother’s sides, learning the art of floral design. I was good at it. My mother had dreams of Kelli and me taking over the shop when she retired. So did I.

Until my uncle became a local legend.

Uncle Jeramiah gave his life in an effort to save a family in one of the worst fires in the history of our city. Add the fact that my grandfather was named the first African-American Fire Chief in the state back in the eighties, and well, that sealed the deal for me.

The one thing I was proudest of was not only following in my family’s footsteps, it was doing so while creating a legacy of my own. I was the first African-American-Cambodian female firefighter in the state.

Talk about breaking the stereotypical lines of race and gender.

Earning the badge hadn’t been easy, though. Gaining the respect of the men at the station was even harder.

After five years, most had gotten over their initial fear and discomfort of having a woman on the team because I carried my own. There were still a few who wouldn’t hide their distrust, mainly because no matter how well I performed in the field, I was still a woman. To them, I represented their wives and sisters, the innocent victims we risked our lives to save. I realized long ago there was nothing I could do to change their minds.

So, I did my job in the field and fulfilled my responsibilities at the station. Cooking dinner was part of my rotation duties for this shift.

In the kitchen, I pulled out the ingredients for tonight’s meal: restaurant styled hamburgers, or as I liked to call them, Juicy Lucy’s. It was a name the guys liked to use in inappropriate ways, of course. Nothing thick skin and a good pair of earbuds couldn’t handle.

“How was your weekend, Lopez?”

My friend and confidant at the firehouse joined me in the kitchen and grabbed a can of Coke out of the fridge.

“Had a nice night out with my lady. Dinner and a movie. How about you?”

“I got caught up on sleep then spent Saturday with a house full of kids under three feet tall.”

He laughed. “Sounds like fun.”

I shrugged and grabbed seasoning out of the cabinet. “It wasn’t bad. It was a birthday party for a friend’s son. He turned one.”

“My lady wants one of those.”

I looked up from the skillet I pulled from the cabinet. “A frying pan?”

“No, a kid.” He grimaced.

My brow furrowed. “You said that like a kid is an item to be bought from the store.”

“What can I say?” He popped the lid on his soda. “I think her clock is ticking.”

I emptied the ten-pound tub of ground beef into the mixing bowl and added seasoning. “What about you? Your clock ticking?” The expression on his face made me laugh.

“Men don’t have ticking clocks. We get the urge to sow wild oats. Totally different thing.”

Leave it to Lopez to have an off the wall explanation of things. “How is that different?”

“Women expect sexual encounters to be full of romance and love. You want to walk away satisfied and knocked up. We just want to get off and go to sleep.”

Unable to put my hand over my mouth because my fingers were deep into the ground beef mixture for the patties, I turned my head and put my mouth on my shoulder to keep my outburst from disturbing the guys who watched TV. “Lopez, you are a fool. How does Maria put up with your crazy ass?”

“I could tell you, but then you might get jealous.” He wagged his eyebrows and winked.

I shook my head and went back to forming patties.

“Anyway, what about your clock? Your lady parts looking for a sperm donor? I’ve got a few friends who think a woman that can handle a huge hose is hot. They’d be happy to service you anytime.”

I groaned on the inside. I hated when people asked me that question. The reality of my life was simple when it came to my inability to conceive and carry to term. My issues were my business. I dug into my bag of lies and shared my ‘truth’.

“Uh, no thanks. I can find one on my own. Besides, I’m not sure having kids is the right thing for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love my niece and can’t wait for my nephew to be born. I’m the aunt who spoils them and sends them home to momma. But be a full-time mom?” I pointed to the lounge area full of grown men. Some played pool while the others watched CNN. “You guys have been enough work as it is.”

Lopez chuckled. “True. But seriously, Malone, you’re what, thirty-eight and you don’t want to reproduce?” He leaned on the counter and stared at me as if I was an anomaly.

I glared at him. “I’m not thirty-eight, I’m thirty-five and proud of it. I worked too damn hard to get where I am in my career to give it up just yet.” I concentrated on forming a hamburger patty. “Besides, if I got pregnant, do you know what a female firefighter has to do in order to keep her job? Under no circumstances would I be allowed near a fire truck or any equipment for fear that I’d have a miscarriage. The county would look at me like a walking law suit waiting to happen.”

Lopez’s eyebrows knitted together in thought. “You could do community service work. Visit schools and talk about fire safety.”

I smirked. “Actually, I’d be doing office work.” I shuddered at the notion. “No thanks.”

He raised his can. “Ouch.” He drank, and then frowned. “Seriously though, no kids?”

“Lopez, for me to consider having a baby, he’ll have to be one hell of a guy worth putting my job on the back burner. The chances of that happening are slim to none.”

Nobody's Business

Trevon Campbell’s world changed the moment his ex-girlfriend announced he was a father. Determined to make up for his past mistakes, he gives Trina what she wanted before their breakup, what feels like his soul, which means forgetting the woman he had a one-night stand with, the woman who stole his heart.

Kai Malone doesn’t want to play by her family’s rules. Instead of working for the family business, she became a firefighter. Being a female of multicultural descent, working in a field dominated by men, Kai focuses on her job to ignore the infidelity of her fiancé. Tired of his deceit, she gave in to a one-night stand with a complete stranger, someone she’d never have to see again…or so she thought.

When tragedy strikes, their worlds collide, leaving them no choice but to deal with each other again. It doesn’t take long for them to realize the attraction that brought them together the first time is stronger than ever, forcing Trevon to make the biggest decision of his life.

It was that, or look over her shoulder for men caring a purple strait jacket. And the rest, as they say, is history.

kinky-christmas

Let me just say, I was jumping up and down when I discovered this Blog Hop. Considering my subject matter and my most recent release, which bears the log line: “Have a very sexy Christmas, and a kinky New Year,” I just had to participate in this event!

Of course, I had to feature Christmas With The White Brothers during the hop, but would like to share the fact that every one of my books is now $0.99 for a LIMITED TIME. So, this means, you can complete your ensemble, gift them to family, and gift them to friends!

Also, in addition to this exciting news, the Blog Tour Host is giving away a fabulous GRAND PRIZE of a $75 Amazon Gift Card, and I’ll follow that up with a chance to win a $15 Amazon Gift Card, A set of all three of my audiobooks, and a set of all 4 of my ebooks, the gift card and ebooks are to be given away internationally. The rafflecopter giveaways will be at the end of the post.

In the meantime, let me introduce you to the Jungle Fever Romance world via Christmas With The White Brothers, which can be read as a standalone, or plopped between Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever and Exit Strategy to be read in a semblance of order 🙂

CHRISTMAS WITH THE WHITE BROTHERS

Christmas White BrothersIIRGB

Keisha Beale has an ‘arrangement’ with one of the richest men in Chicago, who treats her like a queen, but she wants normalcy for the holidays. Well, as much normal as you can get from a man like Tristan White, who has everything and doesn’t think love is something he needs.

Jada Jameson’s dark past may be surprising to some considering the family she comes from. Nathan White wants her in every way a man wants a woman, but she needs hardcore kink, and the pace at which their relationship is progressing has left her wanting more.

Will the ladies of Kente Studio Records get everything they want from their first Christmas with the White brothers?

CHRISTMAS WITH THE WHITE BROTHERS by L.V. Lewis ~ #ASMSG #IR/MC #EroticRomance

Say what? L.V. Lewis has written another book?

Follow-upWell, yes. What I’ve always known, and what has become exceedingly apparent in my time away from actively writing and publishing is that something that is your passion cannot be left to lie fallow. It gets in your blood, it becomes part of you that refuses to be restrained.

As many of you know, I had some personal family crises earlier this year, and I believed that my epic writer’s block was caused by all these things that happened back-to-back. Now that some of these issues have been addressed, I was able to finally exercise my creative muscle again, and just in time for the holidays!CWTWB - Tristan Promo

So, this short novella, Christmas With The White Brothers, became that last thing I had to do in the erotic realm before I completely move on to other genres. It also serves the dual purpose of introducing you to the writer who will complete the Jungle Fever saga, LaVie EnRose. You can read more about Ms. EnRose in the newsletter I sent out earlier today via Mailchimp, and also at the back of the novella :).

Additionally, there are some excerpts in my backmatter from an author I’ve featured here on my blog, Bev Elle, a new author in the IR/MC genre whom I also met at a local writer’s group. Check out her books if you need some reading variety.

Many of you will recognize a portion of this novella as a scene I wrote for the members of my Facebook Group, The Block. However, LaVie and I added approximately thirteen thousand words to it to bring you Christmas With The White Brothers as a bridge to Double Switch in 2015!

LaVie and I will work together sometimes much like other writing duos do in the industry (think Christina Lauren), but her name alone will go on Double Switch and the final as yet unnamed book in the series. So, without further ado, I’d like to share the buy links, summary, and a brief excerpt from Christmas With The White Brothers!

EXCERPT, Chapter 5

Tristan comes prepared, of course. He has a big-assed gift bag for Mama, and even a present for the Reverend. I shake my head.

“What?” he says.

“You never do anything half-assed,” I say.

He smirks. “It’s like you like to say, ‘Go big or stay home.’”

Those are strange words coming from a man the cost of whose suit could feed all the homeless people in Chicago on Christmas Day. He reaches in to ring the doorbell, but I touch his hand and stop him.

“Why do you go to such lengths with my mother? I’m your submissive. Nothing more.” I gesture toward his gifts. “All this is making her think this thing between us is more than it really is.”

He seems taken aback for a moment, but then he responds. “You’re wrong. You’re my business partner, and I’d hope after almost a year you would now consider me a friend.”

“With benefits,” I say morosely. “At this rate, you’re going to have to break up with both of us when you decide it’s time to move on.”

“Do you want me to beg off? I could get a call and leave.”

I don’t get to answer because Mama swings the door open. “Well, are you two going to stand out here yakking, or are you coming in?”

“Coming in.”

“Most definitely,” Tristan and I say almost simultaneously.

While he leans in and gives Mama a hug and presents her with his gift, Reverend Johnson gives me a hug. After all the greetings are done, and we’ve hung our coats on the coat tree, Mama grabs her camera off an end table.

“There’s mistletoe,” she says pointing at the ceiling above us.

“I’ve never been one to let a perfectly good cluster of mistletoe go to waste,” Tristan says and sweeps me into his arms and plants a back-bending, dramatic movie-style kiss on me.

“Awww,” Mama says and snaps, but the camera’s flash malfunctions. “One more, one more.”

“So sad, you missed your chance,” I say, and begin to move away.

Mama’s not having it. “Come on, Keisha, be a sport now. Tristan, don’t let her get away.”

Of course, he does exactly what Mama says and pulls me back underneath the mistletoe. “Come on, sweetheart, let’s make this holiday memorable for your mother.” Tristan scoots in close, bends his knees, and holds me in a tight hug, cheek-to-cheek, our faces angled toward Mama and her camera.

“Big smile,” Mama says. We smile on cue and she gets her money shot, but Tristan doesn’t let me go. He leans in and kisses me tenderly really laying it on thick for Mama.

“Awww,” she says again. “You remind us old geezers what it’s like to be young and in love.”

Tristan and I both stiffen, but I recover first and pat his back, like I’m soothing him, because I’m sure those words have shocked the shit out of him. My eyes shoot daggers at Mama, but she just smiles and acts all aloof.
