Out Today: The Curvy Architect and the Gardener

I’m really excited about this one. Early reviews suggest you like it :)

Given that most of us are shivering IRL at the moment I thought it might be good to do a hot setting instead of another snowy Wyoming book. So pour yourself some homemade lemonade and come with me to Alabama :)

She’s a long way from New York…
Doing up a mansion in Alabama sounded easy. But curvy girl Kara finds there are holes in the roof, a jungle outside and wildlife living in the cupboards. The only upside is the muscled, shirtless gardener who leaves her breathless…but he wouldn’t be interested in a big girl like her…right?

He’s out of his depth…
Hank can tame any garden. But can he figure out this fancy New Yorker who he can barely keep his hands off…and who can’t see the beauty in her delicious curves?

As Kara tries to adjust to a town full of big skirts and homemade lemonade, Hank fights to find a way into her closed-off heart. Temperatures soon rise…but can he convince a city girl to put down roots…and have his children?

The Curvy Astronomer and the Cowboy is out now!

One of my favorite HWMPs is The Curvy Vet. I wanted to go back to Wyoming but I didn’t want to do it until I had a good idea that would fit in a country setting. So I did Curvy Voice Coach and Jewel Thief in the meantime. And then finally, I was out in the country (in Britain – not Wyoming, sadly) looking up at the stars, and I thought, “You know what this night needs? A cowboy. A cowboy to put his arms around me under the stars.”

And so The Curvy Astronomer was born. It’s set in (or at least it starts in) the same town – which now has a name, Mustang Falls. But Emily is quite a different character to Amanda. While Amanda liked to stay in the safety of her lab, Emily’s been out cruising the highways of America for a couple of years. She’s fiercely independent and she’s convinced she doesn’t need any help from anyone–she certainly doesn’t think she needs saving. But she does. When she butts up against Troy, a cowboy who’s all about tradition and making a nice, warm nest of a home, expect fireworks.

It’s out today and, as always, it’ll be 99 cents for the first 24 hours or so. I hope you enjoy :)

(25,000 words, female POV) Curvy astronomer Emily is used to life on her own. She lives on the road, making just enough from her photos to survive. But for her latest assignment, she’ll have to find somewhere that’s really, REALLY dark—some place far away from all civilization.

Cowboy Troy knows horses, not the Horsehead nebula. He agrees to take the stubborn scientist out to a tiny cabin in the mountains, rather than see her get lost…but a blizzard traps them there, miles from the nearest living soul.

A Wyoming winter can be dangerous: howling winds, blizzards, even bears. Can Troy protect the curvy stargazer…and tell her he’s fallen for her? And will loner Emily really want to stop running, settle down…and start a family?

Jewel Thief is finally out! Apologies for the delay

First it was delayed because I wanted to make sure it was perfect. Then Amazon started having problems with their publishing process, with some books getting snarled up in the system for up to 10 days. Now, finally, it’s live. I can’t believe it’s been nearly three months since the last He Wanted Me Pregnant! (“Voice Coach”).

This one’s the story of Gemma, a shy and nervous cat burglar who’s only really at home when she’s dangling upside down from a rope. She doesn’t do people…certainly not men. Luckily, her all-girl team has Lauren, the sexy, curvy grifter, to charm men into parting with their valuables.

But when a job goes wrong, Gemma has to step from the shadows and not just meet a man but talk to him, sing for him…maybe even seduce him. And what a man: Marshall is gorgeous and he’s big. Once these two get together, all bets are off. He might just be exactly what the antsy, twitchy Gemma needs…but if she’s to get the job done, she’s going to need to betray him. A cat burglar who’s spent her life avoiding being caught is about to get very, very tangled.

I always love writing the HWMP books but this one was just a blast from start to finish. As always, let me know if you like it :)

It’s exclusive to Amazon but, with their apps for iPad, phone, PC and even Nook, everyone should be catered for. It’s also in Kindle Unlimited, Amazon’s new service that works a bit like Netflix for books. Amazon are offering a 30 day trial of the service. Or, if you prefer, you can just buy Jewel Thief as normal – it’s 99c today :)

Professional cat burglar Gemma has never fitted in. Nervous and shy, she’s happy only when she’s hanging upside down, dodging a laser beam. But when a job goes wrong, Gemma has to go from skulking in the shadows to getting up close and personal with gorgeous billionaire Marshall Deen.

She’s meant to be stealing a priceless diamond from him; she wasn’t planning on falling in love. As their attraction boils over into passion, Gemma finds her loyalties tested to the limit. And Marshall has plans of his own. Entranced by Gemma, he’s determined to make her his…and he wants a family. But when their two worlds collide and lives are threatened, it’s going to take all of Gemma’s skills to find a way out.

Handcuffed to the Stockbroker is out now…and you get 12 free stories with it!

I’m really excited because this has been coming for a while, but I like to keep quiet about things until they actually happen, so I’ve been bouncing off the walls for the last month or so.

I was very flattered when Mimi Strong asked me if I’d like to be part of a romantic comedy anthology called LOL (Love Out Loud!). When I heard that one of my favorite authors, Julia Kent was also involved, I practically bit Mimi’s arm off (sorry, Mimi).

I wrote a brand new story for the anthology. It’s a romantic comedy in my usual style, so I think both fans of He Wanted Me Pregnant and Shipwrecked will enjoy it. It’s all about Alice, a curvy, fiercely alternative Wall Street protester who handcuffs herself to a “suit” – gorgeous stockbroker Mason – as part of her effort to shut down the stock exchange. When the two are forced to spend the day together, at first there’s nothing but friction…but friction can quickly turn into heat and, when these two get going….

It’s a short story for me – 10,000 words. But along with my story you get twelve other stories from Mimi, Julia and a whole slew of bestselling romantic comedy authors. And the best part is, we’ve put the whole anthology on sale for just 99c- less than 8 cents per story! Grab it now! :)

Shipwrecked with the Billionaire is out now, 99 cents!

A little while ago, I asked you guys if you’d consider reading a romance from me that wasn’t a He Wanted Me Pregnant. The response was an overwhelming “yes,” which gave me the confidence to write this. It’s by far the longest story I’ve written at 47,000 words. If you like HWMP I think you’ll like this too, but for all of you who were asking me to do something longer: here it is! :)

Adam Sykes, bad boy singer with the rock band Iron Hammer, loves to party. When his latest escapade ends in arrest, he’s packed off by his manager to a private yacht to lay low.

Now he’s fascinated.

When the yacht is caught in a storm, the pair are stranded on a desert island and must rely on each other to survive. As the days pass, the friction between them threatens to ignite into lust…but Hannah’s been hurt before. Can she learn to trust a man with Adam’s reputation? Can he prove he’s changed?

As they battle to control their feelings, new dangers emerge. Even if they can escape the island, their problems may be just beginning…

 

Announcing my poll gift card winner

In my last newsletter, I asked you to answer a poll. I said I’d pick a winner at random after a week and award them a $25 gift card. Well, I wound up leaving it open a little longer because answers just kept pouring in, but I thought I should finally call a halt and pick a winner. HM, I’ve emailed you with your gift card code – enjoy! :)

THANK YOU once again to everyone who answered my poll. The feedback was very valuable and will guide me in future books.

Curvy voice coach Charlotte is used to helping actors get their accents right…but this time she’s way out of her depth. Hired to teach Hollywood hunk Tanner Cole a British accent in just one week, she makes a lasting first impression when she accidentally flashes him on webcam.

Dragged from her sheltered life in London, the posh Brit soon finds herself in the craziness of Beverly Hills…and living in Tanner’s mansion. The billionaire actor turns out to be as blue collar–and as hot–as they come, and she needs every trick in her book to help him fake it as an English lord. Unhappy with her curves, Charlotte can’t believe that he could possibly be interested in her. But when their rehearsals for romantic scenes keep getting out of control, she begins to see that the bad boy has hidden depths. Does he want more than a one-night stand? And can he overcome her own fears and insecurities to win her over?

If he can, their troubles may be just beginning. Charlotte’s been hiding her entire life. Is she ready for the glare of the spotlight?

Out Today – The Reporter and the Billionaire Scottish Wolf Lord – 99 cents

The first He Wanted Me Pregnant book with a shifter hero takes us to a remote Scottish castle, where reclusive (and gorgeous) billionaire Lord Alex McKillington has been hiding his true nature for years. When a headstrong TV news reporter stumbles on his secret, Alex struggles to control his primal urges. He wants Rachel for his mate…

I’m really excited about this one. It started off as a short for the “Claimed” paranormal bundle some months back (check you didn’t buy that bundle before buying this, although this version is much longer and heavily reworked). I loved the characters so much I wanted to go back and do a version that was longer than the bundle had room for, and here it is :) It’s 99 cents for the first 24 hours!

Why does he seem so worked up when he’s near her, his low voice almost a…growl?

Alex has hidden his secret for years, isolating himself for the safety of others. But his need to mate hasn’t gone away and when Rachel walks into his life, controlling himself is impossible.

When she discovers his secret, Rachel must convince the brooding, loner alpha male to put aside his demons and love again. But is she really ready to become his mate…and offer him her fertile body?

BBW erotica – learning to love your curves

Cover of BBW Erotica "The Curvy Waitress and the Billionaire French Count (He Wanted Me Pregnant!)" by Victoria Wessex

Yay! My first ever BBW erotica, The Curvy Waitress and the Billionaire French Count (Amazon link, other retailers here) is out today! It’s the ninth in my He Wanted Me Pregnant line. We’re back in New York again for this tale of beautiful curves, a heroine who starts off hating her body (but learns to love it) and, most importantly, a really hot hero who speaks only in FRRRRRRRRAnch 😀

Erard is one of my favorite heroes, mainly for that accent. I can hear him in my head, okay? Actually I was thinking about writing the dialogue that’s meant to be in French, in French just because it sounds so damn sexy, but in the end I figured that would be jarring to read (he and Holly, our heroine, talk in French for most of the book, but it’s all written in English). Let me know what you think – if I did something like this again, would you prefer to actually see the foreign language, with the English shown afterwards so you know what they’re saying? In addition to telling our heroine–in a very sexy way–that her body is just perfect the way it is, he also introduces her to his very special brand of bareback sex…because he fully intends for her to be the mother of his child.

Anyway, this slice of BBW erotica goodness is now (see below for links). What, no Google? Yeah, sorry about that – Google are being slow at the moment – some other authors have been reporting problems too. I’ll let you know here when the book goes live.

This is new territory for me and I appreciate all feedback. I held off writing BBW erotica until I had a heroine I really loved (and one who wasn’t going to fall for the usual billionaire tricks – more in the Behind the Scenes if you follow the link above) but until I hear back from you guys I have no idea if I got it right, so please let me know!

Broke, stuck in a dead-end job and uncomfortable with her curvy body, New York waitress Holly thinks life can’t get any worse…until she accidentally whacks a customer with a tray, breaking his nose.

But the customer, now unable to speak, is the personal translator of drop-dead gorgeous Erard, a billionaire French Count who speaks no English. When he discovers that Holly is fluent in French, he takes her with him as his interpreter.

Thrown into a world of luxury and wealth, Holly learns that her new boss finds her curves delicious. But will he be able to convince her she’s perfect the way she is? And can she accept his brand of hedonistic, carefree lovemaking: no inhibitions, no fears…no condoms?

Jennifer just won a pirate’s booty of candy (and a necklace)

To celebrate the release of The Lady and the Pirate, I did a giveaway for my mailing list subscribers recently. After drawing the names out of a (pirate) hat, the winner was Jennifer from Pennsylvania, who won the pirate necklace together with as much British candy as I could stuff into the package. Here’s a photo of it.

Arr…

I’m hoping that at least some of those chocolate bars aren’t available in the US and will be celebrated for their British weirdness. Congratulations, Jennifer!

Welcome to the new site! Let me show you around

I’ve been working on this for a while and it feels good to finally take the wraps off. This new look website should make it much, much easier to find my books. Over the last month or so I’ve gradually been adding the books one by one and now everything is up here, with links to every retailer. If you don’t see a certain link underneath a book, that means it’s not available there yet, although that’s only true now of two books and I’m working on those. Everything else is available everywhere.

There are two parts to the new website. The blog – which is this bit – and the catalog of books. You can jump to the blog at any time by clicking on the big “Victoria Wessex” image at the top of the page. You can jump to the book catalog by using the black and white menu above to go to a series or a sub-series (e.g. you can show all my “Taken” books or use the drop-down to jump straight to “Taken -> Street Racers.” Want to just see everything? Click “All Books.”

When you click on a cover, you’ll get a blurb, links to the retailers you can buy from and, in some cases, a “behind the scenes” chat from me about what was going through my head when I wrote it. I’m gradually adding these to older titles as I get time, and all newer titles will have them.

Each book will go live on my website the same day as I send the mailing list out (usually Fridays). So if you think you’ve missed a mail, you can always check here. I’ll do a blog post when I release a book and fire that off to Google+, too, so you can choose how to stay updated.

Hope you enjoy. If you notice weirdness, drop me a mail and I’ll fix it :)
