I have good news and bad news.
The good news? Now that Challenging Carter is done and ready for release (yay!), all three strip-themed novellas are eligible for print release as a single-author anthology.
The bad news? In order to get the anthology on the print schedule, I need a title.
So I've been trying to come up with a great, catchy title that encompasses all three stories. Have I had any luck? Um, no.
That's where you come in. Today through Sunday, January 21, I'll be holding a title contest here on my blog. And if your title suggestion is selected, you WIN!
What can you win? An advance copy of Challenging Carter, as well as an acknowledgement in the print anthology.
A few guidelines - post your title suggestions in the comments section. If you have more than one suggestion, include them all in the same comment (unless you have another brainstorm after your first post). And do try to keep it to no more than ten per entrant.
Here are the blurbs for all three novellas, to give you a feel for the themes:
A walk on the wild side with her favorite bad boy is just what this good girl needs!
Mollie Mason is sure her night can't get any worse. Stuck in an inflatable rubber cake, she overhears her fiancé slamming her to the entire guest list of his bachelor party—and then she catches him cheating! But discovering her high school crush has witnessed her humiliation is the icing on the cake.
Cade Gallagher has wanted Mollie for years. And when she asks him to help her prove to the world—and herself—that she's not just a good girl, he knows he'd be a fool to say no. But she wants a temporary fling. Will two weeks be enough time to convince her to take a chance on him—forever?
He's vice. She's nice. This potent combination has to be handled with care...
It seemed easy enough. Hit the local all-male strip club, pick a likely target, and hire him for her best friend's bachelorette party. But the stripper who catches Caroline's eye has a different agenda. He's an undercover cop, and Caroline ends up under arrest – for solicitation!
Tony DiMarco realizes too late that he's made a mistake. Caroline's reputation and business are suffering, and he feels responsible. He feels something else, too – the pull of red-hot desire. He wants Caroline, but she's afraid that he's just trying to make up for his mistake. Can this determined vice cop teach her to trust again?
When the stakes are high, she's ready to shed more than her inhibitions—but will the man of her dreams rise to the challenge?
Dani's been in love with Carter forever. But she's nothing like the women he dates—glamorous, exciting, spotlight-ready. Instead, she's stuck in the 'best friend' role and can't seem to find a way out of it. Until a scheduling mix-up finds her enrolled in a strip aerobics class. Now this buttoned-down wallflower is finding her wicked side—and liking it!
What in the world happened to Carter's best bud? She's gone from sweet to sexy in ten seconds flat—and Carter's lucky enough to be around for the ride of a lifetime. But he knows from past experience that relationships don't last. He's got to get things back on track before the most important friendship in his life is damaged forever.
Problem is, Dani has no intention of going back to being "just friends". It's about time someone challenged Carter's assumptions about love and friendship—and Dani's just the woman to do it!
So there you have it. Three books, three blurbs, one all-encompassing, fun title needed! Thanks for your help, and good luck!
