Tempted by the Night

Countdown to 20

So after dishing yesterday about the covers I, u-hum, don’t like, I get to rave and rave about this one. I nearly swooned when I saw the artwork for TEMPTED BY THE NIGHT. In fact, the next thing I did was contact the artist, Jon Paul, and beg him to let me buy it for my office.

It hangs there to this day. Tempted Final Front A What I love about the full artwork that you don’t really see on the cover of the book are all the wonderful details of this night scene. The carriage, the shadowy street. And just the intimate detail in the clothes. I sort of daydream and crush on it when I look up from writing.

And as much as I love the artwork, that is nothing compared to how much I loved writing the Marlowe series (His Mistress by Morning & Tempted by the Night), from the first spark of an idea of a magic ring that grants the wearer one single wish (whether they realize it or not) just seemed filled with possibilities.

From Charlotte Wilmont’s wish to be the woman ElizBo1Viscount Trent loved, (and she wakes up the next morning exactly that, the woman he loves with all his heart, except she’s not his wife, but his mistress) to Hermione Marlowe’s wish to go about unseen so she can discover what it is the Earl of Rockhurst does at night. Spoiler: it doesn’t involve a mistress. But poor Hermoine spends a good part of the book invisible. Literally.

I actually have about 100 pages of the third book written, but the Marlowes’ stories became victims of shifting reading trends and were sent to the chopping block by a greater power than mine. AKA My Publisher. AKA the people who write the checks. But I hate leaving these stories hanging–so one of these days I am going to find a way to finish this series.

I promise. Maybe if we all make that wish on the Marlowe Family Tree Cordelia, Griffin and Viola’s stories will come to life …

Did you read the Marlowe series? Did you love or hate the paranormal elements?

    I adored the Marlowe series, and I was sad that it stoped at only 2 books. I hope that in the future, there will be some magic in the air, and book number 3 comes to life. :)

    Yes, I’ve read the Marlowe Series and like both the series and the paranormal elements. I think it might be time to try your editors again as several authors have had recent success publishing romances with paranormal element. For example Jayne Ann Krentz with both her Arcane series (as Amanda Quick) and the Harmony Series (as Jayne Castle). Oh, and don’t forget Nora Roberts with several of her trilogies!
