My website has been given a makeover. It has a new banner and a new tagline: Romance that’s nice…and naughty. Sweet ‘n Spicy, who has designed many of my book covers, created the new look.
The resdesign represents a new direction and a rebranding for me. I’ve been known for my spanking romances, notably the Rod and Cane Society series, but I plan to expand my readership base by appealing to a wider audience. The tagline, “romance that’s nice…and naughty” reflects my goal and desire to put the romance back into erotic romance. I want to write (and read) about alpha heroes who are passionately in love about the heroine. They are flawed and imperfect, but they care for and respect her.
So how does nice and naughty apply?
Nice has a dual meaning. In many of my romances, there’s an underlying sweetness in tone in how the hero cares for the heroine. Nice is a reflection of that. But also, whenever you say “nice and something,” it gives extra oomph to the something. Nice and hot. Nice and expensive. Nice and naughty.
My romances will continue to be erotic, only with greater emphasis on the story and the character development. Spanking won’t disappear from my repertoire, but I will write more non-spanking romances like the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series.
Gone is the masturbating lady in pink who I always felt was more appropriate for erotica than erotic romance. I’d never cared much for the tagline “erotic stories to light your fire.” It was something I came up with on the fly when I had the chance to get my website done for free.
I’ve also updated my blogroll, deleting inactive links , adding new ones, and reorganizing it a tad to reflect the rebranding. If you’re interested in a reciprocal blog link, I’d be happy to add you to my blogroll.

I do a weekly Friday Faves, a no-promo zone in which I highlight my favorites things. One is personal, one is publishing industry related (but not personal). I also blog about romance genre topics, host other authors and do interviews, and of course, share the latest info about my books.
What is your tagline? How is it a reflection of your books?
And now…a word from our sponsor
An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.
Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.
Captured by the Cyborg is third in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series but is written to be read as a stand-alone novella.
