WIP Wednesday with Patricia Bates

Patricia Bates: Hmm, my current work in progress is an erotic novel:

After a brutal relationship which nearly killed her, Gillian Hillard has withdrawn from everything, including sex. Burying herself into her work, she avoids life and its entanglements out of fear and lack of confidence. When she meets Firefighter Jack Payle at her mother's wedding the sparks fly and she gets a taste of how exciting it is to stand so close to the flames.

Gillian’s different than any woman Jack’s been with, calm, plain, but beneath the staid clothing and glasses he senses a woman with fire, one who can light his world. He sets out to get her – to claim the woman behind the mask but can his love save her from the darkness?

Fighting fire with fire has never felt so good for them. Passion flares into a five alarm fire threatening to overwhelm them both in its heat.

Sin's Bite: Love, lust, and a blood fued can't keep these lovers apart.

Master's Mistress: In a world of betrayal and murder, a vibrant Celtic slave woman holds the key to her Viking master's heart. #1 Bestseller for May - Champagne Books

The Viscount's Prize: A rugged spy, an innocent courtesan and a court bent on destroying them both. Carnal Passions

Love Thy Neighbor: In a land devastated by the Civil War, can water flow uphill to unite the two lovers destined to reclaim it? Champagne Books

Phantom's Pleasure: Can true love trascend death itself? Passion in Print

Firecracker: Love sometimes means accepting the inevitable.

Bordering on Love: Love will conquer all obsticles

Cowgirl's Christmas: A sexy cowboy, a secluded hideaway - and a love stronger than fear.

Thanks. I'm having a blast with the story - Gillian may seem like a mouse but inside she's a tigress.

We need to get -OFF- this world, girl, NOT further inside where it's clammy and stanky --- Actually, because I saw Heaven, Heaven’s a super-sonic, killer-proposal-relationship IF we pass the test of this finite existence, IF we exceed-the-rules and become the Great Beyond: while faith is certainly justified, the reward of faith is to believe what you don’t see beyond the furthest star. We’ll have a tonOfun for the length and breadth of eternity, lovely girly, where we’ll have a cumulative, effusive euphoria; a BIG-ol, kick-ass, rock-solid, party-hardy for many eons celebrating our resurrection, nekk’n and luuuv’n, drink’n and dancing, full-throttle, mind-blowin, bawl-bustin, virtual reality, baby; on earth, grrr, we have whorizontal taxes - the death of U.S. Upstairs, however, we can fly: like a true, major’s child, we were born 2B wild [literally! Pop was USAF!! I’m so funny, I’m all over it like white-on-rice] God bless you. Love you, doll. See ya soon, miss gorgeous babe --- And, yes, you may take anything OFF our blogs you desires if I can kiss your adorable feets Upstairs in Heaven Above. Deal? Good deal.
