Last Virgin in Vegas

In the coming soon section of House of Sin there have been some requests for a blurb. Here is a brief one:

Lance Lott is a stand-up guy, trying to make it in Las Vegas as a designer for the local hotel moguls. He’s got a terrific girlfriend, who grants him every sexual delight including a three-some.

Gwen McIver agreed to her friend Sydney Wagner’s scheme for one reason and one reason alone. Lance Lott – the man made her blood race every time he looked at her with those Crystal Blue Eyes.

If a ménage a trios is every man’s fantasy why is Lance Lott’s fantasy a nightmare? Ever since he slept with girlfriend Sydney and her friend Gwen, his life has changed. He can’t get Gwen out of his mind.

Some of you may remember Lance and Gwen from The Pilot and the Pinup. Last Virgin in Vegas isn't a sequel as much as a behind the scenes moment, the two stories overlap.

Do they stand alone? I like to think so...but I also think if you read both you'll have a "so that's what happened" moment.

We've have this series discussion going on among the authors at House of Sin. What are some things as readers you like about series? If you don't read series, why not? And are there some you wish had never ended?

I would love to hear your answers!

If a book is really great, I don't want it to end. I love series because you get to keep reading about that character or the world they live in. The trick is to keep it fresh and interesting. Your book sounds great. Threesomes are always good material.

Threesomes are good material. A bit difficult to write...which limb went where sort of thing. LOL!

Series? Hmmmm. I love Feehan's Carpathians, but I have to think she will have to end it some day. I also like her Ghostwalkers series and hope that one never ends.

I was extremely pissed when Charlaine Harries stopped writing her Shakespeare, Arkansas series -- it was a mystery series with a damged, courageous heroine. Oh well, authors do get tired of the same characters, I'm sure.

i confess, i'm a series addict (not of series where the same main characters are the focus, but the ones that jump from couple to couple). if a book is part of a series and i like the series i have this horrific tendency to buy all the books that come out in that series - WITHOUT EVEN BOTHERING TO READ THE BLURBS. i used to be a massive harlequin fan (not so much now though i do still read them). oh, the problems i had! i'd get one of those 12 set series, then more stories supposedly of the same series would appear here, there and everywhere *whimper*

now i like series, but i like to know the chronological order (i'm a real stickler for this!) and like them to be fairly small (say a max of a dozen). that way i can keep them straight in my head. the exceptions are when there are really fabulous books. like michelle m pillow, whose futuristic series are all interlinked. or jj massa montgomery family (she's doing one generation which is about six books, then moving on to the next generation, fabulous as i want the series to run and run!).

i think i've babbled on enough...*whoops*

Sub offer on the blog for today only if you’re interested.

As I’m on a week’s holiday and spending it at home, a game is also on offer if interest is high enough. You’ll need to leave a comment if you want a game to run this week. The game will run from tomorrow until Friday.

I love series. I love reading them and writing them just kind of happens. I don't plan it.
