The story behind Midnight Rider —
Several years ago, I was on an epublishing panel at Left Coast Crime in Monterey, CA. Afterward, I overheard a woman on the panel who was in my Romance Writers of America chapter in Orange County, CA, mention to an aspiring writer that Amber Quill Press was holding a contest for erotic short stories. Mind you, my friend didn't tell me about it. Apparently she didn't think I was the type.
I was multi-published in fiction and non-fiction, but had only had a first romance novel out. I'd had some success with contests, and I wondered if I could write erotic. Well, if you don't try, you'll never know, will you? Dark Stranger was a winner. I've now reduced the erotic parts to sensual, lenthened it, gotten a new cover and retitled it.
From Midnight Rider...
The scene: Jenny has sneaked out to leave the rancho permanently. She's riding in the dark on Conquistador, a sturdy gelding.
Jenny glanced again at the figure behind her.
It wasn't Soltero. Soltero was shorter and broader than the man behind her.
This rider was tall. Clothed in black, the stranger wore a black mask and a hat
with a flat crown and a wide brim pulled low on his forehead. A dark cloak
flared out behind him.
He rode like Satan himself.
A bandit who would rob, ravish,
and kill her or sell her into slavery...
Watch for it soon on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Smashwords
Have a great week!

This is a re-do of my first erotic male-female romance. I've toned down the eroticism to sensual, and I expect to release this short story this summer, probably before A Night to Remember comes out. (I really do write contemporary stories, too!)

The Setting: California, 1834. Jenny, a foreigner hired as companion to his aunt, has rescued Rafael from a violent storm, and they're in a small house where the vaqueros caught in similar storms can shelter. She has removed his clothes and dried him.
WATCH FOR IT SOON
Original, erotic version was one of eleven winners, and I've been writing for them ever since.
