Book Tour: "Wicked Allure" by Leslie C. Ferdinand

Today on Romance Book Junkies we have Leslie C. Ferdinand here to do a guest post and giveaway on her blog tour. So lets welcome Leslie. 

Channeling Your Inner Writer

I meet writers everywhere.  At parties, meetings and banquets.  At breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.   At grocery stores and at church.  Everywhere.  What surprises me most is a lot of the writers I meet don’t do the very thing that makes them writers.
They don’t write.
I’m usually engaged in a conversation about finding the time to write.  Channel your inner writer and put pen to paper and jot down something.  A character study.  A poem. Jibberish.  Whatever.  Do it for ten minutes a day.  You’ll be surprised at the results.  You’ll get into the habit of writing and those ten minutes will soon turn into an hour or two.
It helps to slot in your writing at the same time every day and setting a goal or a time limit.  At the end of a year, if you set a goal of writing a page a day, you’ll have 365 pages, a full-length novel. 
Don’t stop writing to do edits.  That only set your inner writer on a different path.  You won’t be creating new material and you might get stuck in that mode.
Write for however long you choose to do so.  But write and keep writing.  Once you channel your inner writer and nurture it, it will not let you go.

 Multicultural Erotic Romance with Adults Only Content, explicit language and some drug use.

What Does A Man Say to the Woman He Betrayed But Never Stopped Loving?
Three years ago, Zachary Steele refused to entertain thoughts of permanency with any woman. A hedonist at heart, he didn’t want to corrupt the much younger, Madigan DeLeon, by continuing his affair with her. With the hidden scars of his past, he didn’t believe in happily-ever-after. By the time he realized how much Madigan meant to him, he’d driven her away. Then, one night, after being clean for a number of years, Zach briefly falls off the bandwagon. He believes his lovemaking to Madi is a drug-induced hallucination. The resulting consequences tell another story.

What Does A Woman Do When the Only Man She’s Ever Loved Hurt Her So Deeply She Feared She’d Never Recover?
Three years after her affair with Zach so abruptly ended, celebutante, Madigan DeLeon, is thrust back into Zach’s life by her mother’s machinations. Brought home under the false pretenses of repairing her damaged relationship with her mother, Madi instead finds herself running a private sex club called Wicked Allure. Forced to confront her anger at his betrayal and grief at the loss of what might’ve been, Madi faces the realization that she’s never stopped loving Zach.

Can Two Broken Hearts Set Aside Anger and Betrayal to Find True Love Once and For All?
Searching the deepest recesses of their hearts, in a place where pride and pain has no room, Madi and Zach must decide if their bond is strong enough to take a second chance at love. Or if resuming their sexual relationship is an irresistible wicked allure and the ghosts of their former relationship will finally, and forever, sever all ties between them.
