I am on cloud nine right now!
Look at the amazing cover Korey Mae Johnson made for me. 🙂
The first thing I saw was the hunky guy with the fire gear on. By the way, did you know all the gear and equipment is called “Bunker”. Thanks to Mark R Sterling, and fireman – “Bear” (whose name has been used in my story as a thank you for all the fireman help).
So anyway, first, I saw the hot fireman with his bunker… and yummmmmmy, no shirt!
Next, I saw the perfect image for Cassie Jo. This gal is a tomboy, southerner, prankster, athlete… She is pretty and smart, but she doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror dolling herself up. She’s a natural beauty.
I was very pleasantly surprised by how perfectly this model fit with how I pictured Cassie.
OM flipping G! Do you see the adorbs little back and white kitten by Cassie’s feet?!? I totally missed it the first few times I looked. I’ll admit, I was focusing on Eric’s chest, but still…
This was such a treat, because one of the minor characters (only minor because she doesn’t have much of a speaking part beyond a few “Meows”), is a black and white kitten, named Nightmare. Nightmare and Cute Paws are two of the kitties Cassie rescues in the very first scene in the story.
So it really meant a lot to me to see this sweet kitty in the background. Thanks, Korey Mae!
Now that you have the inside info about the cover, here’s the official blurb.
When twenty-four-year-old Cassie Stevens meets Eric Waters, her town’s hunky new fire captain, she assumes he is way out of her league. Cassie isn’t a beauty queen like her mother, and a mature, no-nonsense man like Eric would never be attracted to a fun-loving tomboy like her, especially considering her penchant for getting herself in trouble. So it comes as a shock when he stops by the diner where she works, steers her out of an altercation with some rude customers, and promptly asks her out on a date.
It doesn’t take Cassie long to realize that she has finally met the man of her dreams, and Eric seems to enjoy her sense of humor and playful ways. But after she pulls a foolish prank on him during their first date, he takes her over his knee for a spanking, and she quickly discovers how much a man’s firm hand can sting when applied to a naughty girl’s bare bottom.
Eric’s attention and affection make Cassie feel more loved than she has ever felt before, and despite her sore bottom, his discipline leaves her aroused and yearning to be his. But just as she’s about to give him her heart, it seems he’s no longer interested. Can Cassie put aside her fears and trust Eric, or will her doubts set off a chain of events which will tear their relationship apart?
Publisher’s Note: Cassie and the Fire Captain is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
