Here’s the blurb on UNCONVENTIONAL, my story in the set

From the NYT Bestselling author of The Manhattanites series and for fans of such films as Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Wild Things comes a ménage romance posing the question, can two men share the same woman forever?

They are the best of friends and also the greatest of lovers. Two men and one woman searching for fortune and fame, bound together by an eroticism their money and power can’t buy them. Luigi, the romantic alpha hunk. Rocco, the exotic bisexual. Jemma, the insatiable beauty who possess them both.

From their first rendezvous in Milan, the three set out on a wicked course jet-setting from the lavish palaces of Moscow, to the kinky underground sex clubs of Berlin, to New York’s high society in pursuit of pleasure, they have only each other to care for. That is…until a baby comes along and changes their destiny. But which of them is the father? And will they continue their poly-relationship or give in to

It’s Gonna Be A Scorcher w/ Tawny Stokes, Carly Phillips, and Elena Aitken!

You're invited to Eden

You’re invited to Eden


Invitation to Eden is getting hawt as balls this July with three NEW exciting stories. Tell me in the comments section below how you like to cool off as temperatures continue to rise.

It could be a swim in your pool, slurping an ice-cold lemonade or just sitting in front of the air conditioner…naked. *wink*

I’ll pick three winners (one per book) to win. Have fun!

Love, Avery


Be sure to check out these hot new release…

Ivy in Bloom by Vivi Anna writing as Tawny Stokes (Hothouse series, Book 3)

After getting out of a bad relationship and dropping out of university, Ivy Watts decides she needs some much needed stress therapy so she tags along with her parents to a luxury island resort called Eden.  She expects to laze around on the beach with a drink in her hand and figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life, but what she doesn’t expect is to learn a few life lessons from the tall, dark handsome man in the penthouse suite.

Dare To Surrender by Carly Phillips (Dare to Love Series, Book 3)

After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station.  To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible. Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become — or risk losing her for good. A woman who needs to run her own life.  A man who needs to exert control.   Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

Second Glances by Elena Aitken (The Springs)
When Kylie Wilson receives a mysterious invitation for an all expenses paid trip to a tropical, all inclusive resort, there’s no doubt in her mind who it came from—Marcus Stone, the only man she’s ever really loved. The same man who’d promised her forever and then promptly left town to pursue his dream without so much as a backward glance. Kylie owes it to herself to take a chance, and despite her conflicted feelings, she decides to risk her heart again and is soon jetting toward the island of Eden and the man she hopes will finally fill the void in her life. But when she arrives, all is not as she expected it to be. More to the point, he is not who she expected him to be. And on an island that is supposed to ‘know exactly what you need’, can Kylie open her body, mind, and more importantly—her heart to someone and something, she’s never considered?

“If you were invited to Eden, what would your fantasy look like?”

 ”When I arrived there would be a rickshaw waiting for me to take me to the castle.  The first day would be all about pampering. I would spend the day in the spa, with a two hour massage, then a full wax and polish of my entire body.  Mani and pedi, hair and makeup as well.  Then I would dress for a late supper on the beach.  There waiting for me at my table would be Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch.  They would’ve ordered already, because they know what I love, and we would eat and laugh and talk about all manner of intelligent topics. After dinner would be dancing at the club, with lots and drinks, and flirting. Then finally back to my room.  Where of course they both already know exactly what I love and what I want. And for the next week, it would be the three of us on the beach, swimming in the ocean, long lunches, naps in the afternoon, dining and drinking and playing.”

“It’s my fantasy, so I’m single (apologies to my wonderful husband) and looking for love but I don’t think I’ll find the right guy.  I would like to be met on the island by my very own Alpha dominant man who thinks the sun rises and sets on me. He wants to show me how good it would feel to submit in the bedroom.  OK I’m game.  He takes me to the club created by Gabe, my hero in Dare to Surrender and his heroine Isabelle, and when the lessons are over, I’ve learned the romance novels I read are right and it’s freeing to submit. Problem is, I’ve fallen for my Alpha guy and this is only a fantasy.  Except some fantasies are meant to last forever. ”

“In my fantasy, I would arrive on the island of Eden at night, unaware of who invited me to spend a decedent week with them. The mystery would continue as I was shown to my luxurious beach side cabana. After a night of waiting and wondering, the anticipation building, I would wake to a beautiful tropical day, the sun hot, my mystery lover—even hotter as he waited for me on our private veranda. Of course he would know everything I liked and more importantly—needed, even those things I’m not fully aware of. Our days would be spent exploring the island and all of the wonders it had to offer, our nights exploring each other.”

Invitation to Eden heats up summer with Cathryn Fox, Eliza Gayle and Sara Fawkes!

What’s Next For The Manhattanites & Undergrad Years


Are you ready for Lex, Taddy and Vive’s GBF to find his happily ever after? That’s right it’s Blake Morgan’s turn for love.

In XO, Blake (Undergrad Years #3) the novel picks up right after Yours Truly, Taddy. With Unsaid ( Manhattanites #3.) it’ll be in present time as Blake approaches his thirties.

Both books can easily be read as a stand-alone and there are no cliff hangers. I don’t have exact pub dates. XO, Blake will be later this summer and Unsaid  will be out sometime this fall.

If you’d like to be considered for an advanced reading copy of either novel (in exchange for an honest review) please fill out this form. It’ll collect your contact information and automatically add you to the list. I’ll be in-touch when they are ready.

Bloggers there will be review tours and blitzes with tons of prizes for both releases. I’d be happy to put your blog down to contact you as soon as I have the dates firmed up. Please put your contact info down on this sheet and I’ll be in-touch. Keep in mind both books will release at separate times with different campaigns.

Below are a few inspiration images that I used when finishing Unsaid.

Lex and Massimo from Undressed  have a subplot in Unsaid. There will be wedding bells for one of the couples involved….but who? The Manhattanites soap opera continues. Can’t wait to see you soon with my new books.

Love, Avery
