Author: Elizabeth SaFleur
Genre: Contemporary erotic romance
Congressman Jonathan Brond has mastered his work, his reputation and the art of sexual domination while keeping his family’s political legacy intact. But a chance encounter with 19-year-old college student Christiana Snow promises an irresistible challenge, and something he’d given up on long ago – meeting someone honest.
After her disappointing freshman year, Christiana is about to declare “adventure bankruptcy” when the charismatic man proposes a summer of sensual, sexual submission. She jumps into his world of bondage, expensive lingerie and being taken, everywhere.
But, as he lures her into the Dominant/submissive relationship, they both learn how unforgiving Washington, DC really is. In a city that feeds on gossip and scandal, Christiana and Jonathan find it hard to keep their relationship intact – and secret. Yet, Jonathan knows that in a town of players, sometimes the only way to win is to introduce a new game. Neither imagines that falling in love would be the winning plan.
Christiana is always busy working, though she gets some inside details to some of the cities elite citizens. She is also daughter to a known reporter. This does not deter her ambition to finish school and make something of herself. She is dragged to many parties and does not think of her as a socialite, by any means. At the young age of 19, her maturity level challenges the age mark. Bumping into Jonathon, by accident, or not, will leave him unable to forget lingering thoughts of Christiana.
Their lives collide in a sexual tension journey sweeping Christiana into a world she may be far ready for. She is taken to places and introduced to a life only a dominant man can give her. Jonathon is not as innocent as it all sounds. He too has some secrets and a unrelenting father trying to force him into a life he does not welcome. All of this turns into a scandal that will surely have Washington DC on the map.
I had the wonderful pleasure of reading Lovely and can only wait to read more work by Elizabeth. I appreciate the opportunity to have received this ARC. Romance readers will fall head over heels with Lovely.
Writing erotic romance is the most fun I’ve ever had. (Well, except for the research.)
Many of my books are set in Washington, DC, where I lived and worked many years, running a public relations firm. In my PR career I’ve been fortunate to encounter or represent some of the city’s powerful insiders. I write, tweet and post under my pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since my clients might be a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. (I’ll never tell.)
Today, I live in Virginia with my husband and furry child. Occasionally I’m separated from my laptop to indulge in dance classes and visit wineries and hiking trails with family and friends. If there were a house fire, I’d grab my dog, laptop and five-foot-long, regulation, Sally Rand ostrich feather fans — in that order. (Hubby knows the way out.)
I’m a member of the Romance Writers of America, Washington Romance Writers, and an ongoing student of fiction writing, as well as avid reader of general fiction and romance, especially the erotic kind.
