Thank you Eileen for having me on your wonderful Dragon’s Den Blog today. I’m excited to share with you and our friends the book launch of the fifth book in the Risking Love series. Black Velvet Seductions Publishing is having a grand sale for the event. See the details below.
JOSHUA (Risking Love Book 5) Blurb
Bella spent the last year with a man that barely touched her. It was high time that she got some hot, passionate sex. The only problem was it couldn’t be with just anybody. It had to be with someone special.
Should she choose the gorgeous club owner? Or the mysterious, sexy businessman? Which of them would let her explore a secret desire for a little non-vanilla passion in and out of the bedroom?
Excerpt from JOSHUA
By Callie Carmen
She huffed out air at the sight of me and folded her arms across her chest. Her olive skin had a flushed pink tint, and I would have sworn that she was pissed at me.
Had I missed something? Had she wanted me to open her door? She didn’t seem the type that would like that kind of thing on such a casual type of date. I would have opened the door for her if we’d gone out to a nice restaurant, of course. But not here on the dirt driveway, with broken clam shells spread round.
“What’s wrong? Are you mad at me for not opening your door? Or what?”
She plopped her fisted hands onto her hips and gave me duck lips.
She looked so adorable in that stance, with her eyes shooting fire, that I wanted to grab her and kiss those plump duck lips. But the next thing out of her mouth was.
If memory served, she had just asked, “Are you kidding me?”
Geez, was Bella going to be a high maintenance girl? I didn’t need a drama queen for a girlfriend. I was at a point in my life where I was looking for the love of my life. Someone that I had a strong connection with that matched both my passion and my intellect. I had thought that could be Bella, but now I wasn’t so sure, since she’d gotten her little panties in a wad over something so small.
As I was about to say something, I was sure I’d regret, she held her hand straight up and said, “Don’t talk to me.”
I wanted to take her over my knee to teach her a lesson. She was acting like a child. Then I remembered my mother’s favorite saying: Silence is sometimes the best answer.
Right then, I felt something hit me in the head and drip onto my forehead. I looked at Bella. Her eyes were huge, and her mouth had dropped open. I swooshed my hand across my forehead and looked at it. There was a blob of bird shit.
Bella burst out laughing.
Figuring there was more than one way to deal with her bad attitude, I pretended like I was going to wipe my hand on her. She screeched and hightailed it down the path to the cottage. She laughed all the way there.
I’d be damned, I roared along with her. Maybe this would work out. I followed her but kept enough distance between us that she could have fun thinking she had kept away from me.

I’ve got the Risking Love Box set, so I must get this!!! Sounds fabulous! Love that gorgeous cover, and I mean that on so many levels. 🙂
Thanks, Sassy Brit. I loved writing Joshua. Two women in love with the same guy. Oh no!
You have to let me know what you thought of Joshua’s love story.
I love this cover so much and I do know what you mean.
Oh my gosh! What a thing to happen on a date! But he found out what he needed to: Bella is going to be okay and don’t stand in one place for too long! I can’t wait for this book!
Too funny! Yes, you never know what will drop out of the sky.
Thank you. I hope you love it.
Oh dear, everyone’s worst nighrmare— being pooped on the head. 😂😂
I love the scene and the cover, Callie.
Ha ha. Yes, it is always a conversation stopper when that happens.
I’ll let Jessica know how much you love the cover.
‘Patrick’ set the bar pretty high, so I’m waiting with bated breath to read this one!
Too funny, I hope this one is even better although there isn’t a serial killer so you might not be a happy camper.
I so love the series. I must confess reading Patrick made me wonder how this series was going to go, as it covers unusual topics in a typical romance. The series has just grown adding new depths to the existing group of characters. I am dreading this series coming to an end, I have loved it so much. Great blog post, Eileen, and Callie.
