Looking forward to LSFW conference!

Will they be able to tolerate me? Will crowds part and leave a wide swath when I pass? Will I meet new people who will ask me why I have a white streak in my hair (FYI: homage to Rogue)? Looking forward to meeting kindred spirits who may/may not do some/all of the above.

Dance of the Rogue by Cris Anson

Today’s Magical Read is Dance of the Rogue by Cris Anson


Love-’em-and-leave-’em bad-boy Rolf has met his match, and she’s nothing like his usual dalliances. Older, plus-sized Fantine is a woman who embraces her curves and revels in her femininity. A weekend of pleasure that begins as a sizzling sexual distraction to both sparks a deeper need that neither was looking for, a connection neither is able to relinquish.

Fantine also brings Rolf a gift beyond measure-a link to the dark-eyed, dark-haired father he always suspected was his, not the blond-haired, blue-eyed sire of his brothers. Amid the joy of learning of his new family and a tempestuous relationship burgeoning with steamy sexuality and newfound emotions, a new side to Rolf emerges-the man he never thought he could be, and the lover of Fantine’s deepest fantasies.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s magical read. All of these titles and more will be available at the Liberty States Fiction Writers conference book fair on March 19th from 5:30-7:00pm.
