Hold ‘Em has Bonus Content…
By Katie Porter
We had such a blast writing the Vegas Top Guns series that we didn’t want to be done. Isn’t that the sign that you’re writing the right books? Either that, or it’s a sign that we’re sort of delusional. But we indulged. Of course we did. There’s no down side to this—especially not when it means free short stories for readers!
Now, I know that some people aren’t into the whole epilogue idea. They’re usually littered with babies and weddings and things that feel like the author just wanted to tie things up in a neat bow. There’s nothing wrong with a neat bow, of course. But the top of the heap fighter pilots we thought up for this series? They’re not exactly the babies and weddings sorts. (Oh, maybe they are eventually. Ryan and Cass in particular. But we weren’t ready to give them up quite that much—so we basically wrote bonus epilogues!
There’s bonus content for all three of the VTG books, including Double Down and Inside Bet. (But spoiler alert! The couples are in the midst of their happily-ever-afters. Don’t read unless you’ve read the books.) But it’s Hold ‘Em that’s out now, and there’s an extra epilogue for them too:
A bonus scene from HOLD ‘EM, the third in Katie Porter’s “Vegas Top Guns” series of contemporary erotic romances. Mike and Leah take a sexy leave-time trip to San Francisco, but they aren’t just there for the sightseeing. Instead, Michael is quite the sight, trussed up on a St. Andrew’s Cross.
That sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Eh, who am I kidding? It sounds mindblowing, because Michael is such a hottie and a delicious alpha male. When he intentionally gives up control? He and Leah make the page sizzle.
You know you want it. I tried grabbing a little mini-excerpt, something exclusive, and this was all I could find:
Practically every other bit of possible excerpt was too dirty or too naughty for a blog post! I dunno about you, but that’s a pretty resounding bit of encouragement for me. Technically maybe that excerpt deserves a spoiler alert too, but if you haven’t figured out that the hot & sexy & exciting couple is going to be happy at the end of a romance novel, you’re probably pretty new to the genre. Of course they’ll have a happy ending—along with smoking hot sex that helps them figure out part of their psyche. It’s practically the calling card of good erotic romance.
And lucky you, it doesn’t have to end! Well. Not until you finish the extra scene. After that, it’s done for. Sorry. 😉
Up next for Katie Porter, the co-writing team of Carrie Lofty and Lorelie Brown:
November brings the m/m Christmas-themed CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR, described as “masterful” by Publishers Weekly. In January, LEAD AND FOLLOW will launch the five-part “Club Devant” series of erotic multi-partner romances set in a hot New York City burlesque club.
Where to find us:
We’d like to give away a copy of DOUBLE DOWN, INSIDE BET or HOLD ’EM (winner’s choice) in any format. Just answer the question: What do you think about epilogues? Love ‘em, hate ‘em or don’t much care either way?
Thanks again to Delighted Reader for featuring Katie Porter and Hold ’Em!
