I'm happy to welcome Katie Porter to the blog. This is the co-writing team formed by authors Lorelie Brown and Carrie Lofty. Together they write Erotic Romance, and they are here today to tell us more about their new book, Inside Bet.
Heather’s Mysterious Tattoo
By Katie Porter
Heather from Inside Bet is pretty straight laced. She’s an accountant, and has lived a very straight and narrow sort of life for more than a decade. She dresses conservatively and drives a six-year-old Camry. That’s what makes her happy—and helps her live down some pretty serious mistakes in her past. But that doesn’t mean she’s absolutely locked down.
Heather’s got a tattoo. It’s special to her, carefully chosen to mark a new epoch in her life. But Jon is surprised exactly how much he likes it:
He turned her body and traced the beautifully worked vine. The ink wound its way up to where it teased beneath the sharp edge of her shoulder blade. His fascination with it was…surprising. Maybe it was the image of Heather patiently draped over the tattooist’s chair for hours, biting her lip against the sting. Maybe it was the perfectly fashioned hourglass shape it adorned. He wanted to spend hours learning every detail.“What does it say?”She looked over her shoulder. A light pink blush stained her skin. “Things without remedy should be without regard: what’s done is done.”“Lady Macbeth? So, Ms. Morris has a tragic side.”She shrugged as if it meant nothing to her, but her hands covered his once again. “It’s really more about ignoring tragedy.”“Ignoring? Funny. I hear someone trying very hard to forget.” Starting at the deep curve of her hip, he licked up the slender vine. Along the way he paused to nip softly at a bud or two. Or five. “And the flowers?”“Morning glories.”
Morning glories is a flower with blooms that open in the morning and die by afternoon. Fleeting. Gone quickly. But the plant also creates new blooms every single day. New chances and new opportunities as love flourishes again and again. Heather has spent the years since her last, biggest mistake making up for them and trying to move on at the same time.
Lucky for her, Jon doesn’t believe in mistakes. He believes in choices. And the rich, playboy pilot with a sexy as hell car choosing Heather is one of the most exciting things to happen to her. In a good way.
Up next for Katie Porter, the co-writing team of Carrie Lofty and Lorelie Brown:
