laughed back. "Like that's gonna happen. Bye." She disconnected the
call as she rose to answer the knock. Her small office suite was on the ground
floor at the rear of the building, so she couldn't always see who outside her
door. Keeping it locked seemed like a good idea unless she had an appointment.

He was damp, his hair curling down onto his forehead and dusted with sparkling
droplets. He smelled of…Logan, a fresh male scent that seeped into her brains
and curled itself up in her hypo-something or other.

never really knew what it was to be truly alone. You were right, Susannah. We
had our reasons, but you were right. We'd been hiding. I'm done with hiding
now. And I've figured out what it is I want."

Because I'm pretty certain that what I want…is you."
She snapped the lock back into place. "Only pretty certain?"

that. "I need to make sure. And for that, you'll need to get naked. Soon.

About The Author
Kelly is always happy to explain to editors that her spelling errors aren't
really errors, since she was born and raised in England, where an extra "u"
is quite in order. She likes to think it adds colour to her writing. Sadly, it's
not a widely held belief, so she'd like you to know she still retains a lot
from her English childhood even though you won't see much of it in her stories.
in America with her almost-complete collection of Leslie Charteris' Saint
novels and a passion for Monty Python, Sahara's new life eventually expanded to
include a husband, offspring, citizenship, and a certain amount of acclimation
to her new surroundings. (She still cherishes that extra "u" though.)
Life in New England became complete with the publication of her first novel
just after the birth of her son, and over two decades later she's still
enjoying the greater freedom offered to authors by the rapidly expanding
self-publishing scene, she's looking forward to many more such experiences,
both with older favorites and lots of new stories like this one. Being freed of
restraints has opened doors--for Sahara and many other writers. There are now
no impediments; no obstructions barring the path from writer to reader. Which
is, in many ways, exactly as originally intended when that first storyteller
sat on a rock outside her cave, tugged her bearskin around her shoulders and
smiled at her kids across the open fire with the words "Once upon a time..."
(or however it sounded several million years ago.)

series of romances based in and around Renaissance Faires will be wrapping up
with the next book, ROUGH KNIGHT? It is, as you may have deduced, Sophie Lewis's
story and it involves leather. And perhaps some bondage. And perhaps a bit of
punishment as well, along with a man who is as tender and loving as he is
dominant. Sahara Kelly has written more than a few popular BDSM novels, and is
looking forward to dipping her pen into the turbulent ink of desire blended
with submission and dominance. Sophie's about to find out just what constitutes
a Rough Knight. In more ways than one.

. Set in Massachusetts, at King Richard's Faire, this is a personal
favorite of Sahara's, since she's a regular attendee. She has also visited the
other two locations for this series, Maryland and Tampa, but since she's a New
Englander now, she's most familiar with the lovely landscape of Southern
Massachusetts. And of course, there must be costumes. Another of Sahara's
obsessions. Keep an eye out for a little pamphlet she's published titled "Sahara
Kelly's Guide to Corsets". At the moment it's only in private
distribution, but you never know…

community in Magnolia, north of Boston, was more into dressage and polo than
recreating the gunfight at the OK Corral. So his riding career had been briefer
than he'd anticipated. No tears were shed, since his nasal passages had never
completely accustomed themselves to the fragrance of sweaty equines. He
supposed one got used to it, but for his part he'd rather not. These days, his
horses of choice were the ones under the hood of his Audi.

mouth, which had fallen open at the elfin vision before him. She was petite but
rounded, her voluptuous shape revealed by a tight gown, cut low in front. Her
blonde hair flew every which way, long fronds seeming to dance around her head
