A brief description of the book:
While feeding in the slums of the city, he is interrupted by a woman. Mesmerized, he extracts his fangs from his meal and follows her home. Instantly obsessed, he watches her nightly. Nights turn to months. His desire for her becomes overwhelming. Though fearing the wrath of a vicious Maker who turned him against his will, Julian decides to give Kate the most erotic night of her life, and then walk away. But, things rarely go as planned….
Kate Collins is an average woman in her late-30’s, plagues by panic attacks. Sent home by her boss at the shelter, she prepares to have a night of relaxation… until her doorbell rings.
Julian Montfort is the most beautiful and masculine man she has ever seen. He exudes ‘maleness’ from his entire body—that certain quality some men have in their DNA that makes a woman recognize her femininity…her ‘womanness.’ That part of her that is soft, malleable, and made to accept him. Drawn to him despite his unconventional arrival, Kate must answer his question: “Can you allow yourself this indulgence? It’s just one night.”
Deeply sensual and erotic, Master for Tonight is a contemporary vampire romance which goes beyond the burning physical attraction between Julian and Kate, telling a tale of two people drawn together under incomprehensible circumstances, and their fight to be together against all odds.
“Master for Tonight was an amazing love story. It is very well written and the story kept me entertained with love and hot passionate sex.” Amazon Reviewer

Pros and cons of being an author?
I am absolutely thrilled to be an author. It’s something that I always wanted to do, but never had the actual inspiration until
this guy started talking to me in my head (sounds strange, I know, but it’s true). He wouldn’t leave me alone until I told his story. Since I love reading paranormal (especially vampires) and erotica, it isn’t surprising that it was an erotic, vampire romance story that I wrote.
I’m still floored when someone who has read the books writes a good review or tells me how much they loved them! It never gets old! Please make sure to let authors you love know it! It’s hard to keep going when you’ve put your heart and soul into a book and you get no feedback.
There a lot of cons… Piracy for one. I stopped looking at how many times my books had been illegally downloaded. It made me physically ill. Returns. What are the ethics behind reading a book and returning it? Amazon needs to change their policy. Also, I think there is this idea out there that authors are all rolling in it when quite the opposite is true. Loss of family time is another. I work full time, come home and then either promote or write. Somewhere in there, I need to be a wife too. But, my husband is my biggest fan and fully supports me. I’m lucky!
