She enchanted you with her poetic writing with her Natalie’s Edge series. She kept you on the edge with her well-drawn characters and their highly erotic encounters. If you are not a fan yet hurry up to Amazon and start falling in love with Temptation but be prepared for the Fall just to rise and find Redemption.
Those of you who are already fans of the talented authoress R.B. O’Brien know she is on the verge of releasing her next series. The first book in the future Thorne series will have its official launch next Friday, on 19th February. I’ll keep you updated about her special launch party on Facebook. If you pass by you’d get a chance to enjoy the company of such authors as Michael Dalton, Shelby Kent-Stewart, Linzi Basset and many others, including myself. Meanwhile you may pass by rbobrien.weebly.com, leave a comment at some of her posts and get a chance to win a copy of her upcoming novel.
I had the chance of reading Thorne: Rose’s Dark Contract and let me tell you it is a true masterpiece of the erotic suspense. By the end of the novel you’d be begging Ms. O’Brien for more. Remember, nothing in that book is what it seems at first glance.
Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven…the primrose path—Shakespeare
William Thorne is a powerful man with dark needs and a troubled past who doesn’t have the time nor the desire for romantic relationships or notions.
Through meticulous planning and iron-clad contracts, Thorne has managed to maintain a modicum of balance, control, and happiness by employing personal assistants to aid him in all aspects of his professional and personal life.
Sex with no strings attached. Obedience without questions. An arrangement of mutual benefit. No mess. No love. No expectations. Nothing beyond a signed contract.
But when Thorne meets recent music grad, Victoria Rose, the shy and beautiful down-on-her-luck waitress, obsession replaces his carefully constructed thinking. He becomes so fixated on having her, without a full understanding of who she is, that he rushes her contract, making mistake after mistake before the ink even dries. His once neat and controlled existence becomes blurred and smudged.
Can the mistakes he makes be erased from Rose’s dark contract? Or will the damage leave an indelible mark that nobody could have seen coming?
About the author:
I can’t remember not reading. Even now, I constantly toggle between two to five books on my Kindle in all genres. But I have always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from my strict Catholic parents as a tween, to getting lost in the erotic section of my favorite bookstore for hours as a college student, discovering such greats as Henry Miller and Pauline Réage.
In my own writing, which I can’t describe as anything but a “trance-like compulsion,” I like to explore the darker nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly. I am drawn to expose the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion.
I hold a degree in English literature and my writing comes from some hidden, unrecognizable place, very different from the reality of my waking world. I am in love with E.E. Cummings and Anais Nin who continue to inspire me when I write.
“To write is to descend, excavate, to go underground.”—Anais Nin.
Keep the date in your schedule and be the first to buy your copy of that great future series!
One thought on “THORNE: Rose's Dark Contract: Official Release on Feb 19th”
The book sounds a very steamy tale. I have a particular soft spot for beautiful musicians.
I however must comment especially on the artwork, it is fantastic. Not least because the fair lady’s bare back made me feel all funny inside!
Best of luck when it is released!
