I'm so pleased to welcome Don Abdul as my guest today. Not only is he a great writer but a good friend and early Mentor of mine. Good to see you again. What's happening with you at the moment?
It’s good to be back as a guest blogger on your blog, Naomi. For the benefit of your new readers, and especially for those who are not familiar with my work, I will start by telling you a little bit about myself.
I'm a writer and author of erotic fiction in my 40s. I discovered creative writing as an escape from the dullness of small town life at an early age. Although my literary journey began with a passion for writing poetry, it has culminated into me becoming a published poet and author of erotic fiction mostly at the upper heat levels, and across multiple sub-genres.
Some of my other works of erotic fiction have been published under my Nom de plume, Tyrese Jordan.
I’m here today to talk about my newly released book A Cougars Legacy – Chocolate Desire.
Chocolate Desire is my third book published by published by Bitten Press Publishing LLC, and it is also the first book in the “A Cougars Legacy” trilogy. This book has generated the most tremendous pre-release among all of my books to date.
Like most of my stories, A Cougars Legacy is inspired by the wishes, aspirations and secret fantasies that form the interesting back stories in the lives of my characters regardless of their public persona. The inspiration for Chocolate Desire is consistent with this idea.
The book also speaks to the unsung and often unappreciated sacrifices women make in order to give their marriages the best chance of success. The premise of the story is the desire of a middle aged divorcee to reconnect with true herself and enjoy the freedom to explore her sexuality, and her preference for interracial love in the arms of a much younger man.
The characters are realistic enough that readers can relate to them and possibly even recognize them as friends, neighbours and co-workers in their everyday lives.
The My style is easy, and conversational in the true fireside story telling tradition that puts the reader in the characters’ heads and makes them feel as though they are right there at the scene of the drama.
The humour and heated sex scenes speak for themselves as attested to by readers who have been privileged to sample the excerpts.
Standing by her bedroom window of her one-story semi detached home, Marie-Claire Gaultier licked her lower lip. A shiver of excitement coursed through her.
‘How the hell did I become this bundle of uncontrollable hormones?’
‘A bitch in heat,’was actually the phrase that leapt to the fore of her thoughts as she reflected upon the events that brought her to that very moment.
It was a lovely Saturday morning at the height of summer. Just like she did the previous weekend, she stood by her bedroom window, barely obscured by the lace of her curtains. Her eyes were focused on the handsome black youth who was hard at work mowing her lawn and tending the grounds.
Peeking out from her window, she visually caressed his taut, sweaty chocolate skin as it reflected the light of the morning sunlight. She whispered his name tenderly like an infatuated school girl.
‘He must have arrived quite early...So conscientious. I bet he is every bit as conscientious in bed too...’The thought brought a naughty smile to the corners of her sensuous mouth. Subconsciously caressing her left breast, she moaned softly. Her thumb brushed her pebble-hard nipple in the process. The rush of electricity that coursed through her was a reminder that she was stark naked. Watching Ray as he worked away at his job, she mentally removed his worn khaki work shorts with her eyes.
‘Mmmm... Isn’t he just a sight fit for a discerning and very horny Cougar.’
She laughed softly to herself and then whispered under her breath,
“Cougar uh? How so very cliché...”
Her eyes roamed his sweaty, naked, chocolate upper body, moving down to his powerful brown thighs. With every movement he made, his muscles rippled as though they might explode out of his lovely dark skin.
Marie-Claire felt herself go weak at the knees. Intense warmth radiated from her core and spread to her moist sex and hard nipples. Closing her eyes, she sniffed the air, mentally filling her lungs with the potent smell of his sweaty skin. She imagined his strong arms around her while he made her do things most decent woman would be ashamed to admit.
When she opened her eyes again, he was bent over with his tight muscular ass pointing up in her direction.
“Damn you! Handsome chocolate prince...” she whispered, helplessly staggering back to the edge of her queen-sized bed. Her legs simply couldn’t support the weight of her desire any longer. Her throbbing sex demanded relief; otherwise she would lose her mind.
READERS’ PRE-RELEASE REVIEWS
“A very good introduction to the character, we can tell a lot about her from this one, sad, incident.”
“I absolutely love it. It captivates me. I want to read more. Now I want to know how it ends, what happens throughout the book and everything. Don you outdid yourself. Excellent job making me obsess over this book till I get it.”
“Again, I love how you pull me in. I love Marie-Claire as a character and I'm enjoying where this story is headed. I agree with one of the other posters. She really is a strong woman.”
“Don! This scorcher just never loses its flame! I cannot wait to read next weeks when they actually get to it. I have almost as many goose bumps at the thought. I love these words and how you use them “heat of passion” “unleashed” “chocolate angel”. Bravo. Xo”
Your mind seems full of stories to tell and books to write. I wish you continued success Don
