Hey Everyone let's welcome Elodie Parkes as we chat about her newest title: The Winter Girl!

Hi TC,

Thank you for inviting me to the blog for the release of The Winter Girl, my latest contemporary, erotic romance, from Hot Ink Press.
Just a little about me to let your readers know who I am.
I live in the United Kingdom and I work in an antiques shop as well as writing. I have two dogs that keep me fit with their need for walks. Love the countryside and the coast.
I write romance, contemporary, and erotic with a twist of mystery, suspense, or the paranormal, now and then. I like to make the story unusual in some way, by a quirk in the tale. My books are always steamy.
About the book:
The Winter Girl, a June 14 release from Hot Ink Press, and author Elodie Parkes
Lily Prescott is only just over a relationship break up when she decides to take up residence in a house left to her by her recently deceased grandmother. Her corporate law job takes a back seat as she licks her wounds in the small country town. She looks around the main shopping street and discovers people who will befriend her, but she also runs into the town’s most eligible bachelor and secret bad boy, Starr Forrester.
Loved for his lifelong association with the town, Starr hides his methods for staying single well from his friends. He’s nearly thirty, gorgeous, a designer, owns a business and on the lookout for his ‘Winter Girl’….
Will it be Lily? What is a ‘Winter girl’?
Fun, sex, romance and a little twist of the paranormal, makes this a must read erotic romance.
I loved writing this book. The inspiration for it came when I was traveling for work and stopped for a break in a lovely, ancient place in England. The place has a main road running through the center and yet maintains an air of mystery. The town is surrounded by a huge ring ditch and ancient standing stones. There is a shop on the high street that did give me some inspiration for the shop in the story, but there’s no gorgeous Starr Forrester in there. He’s the bad boy in the book. He’s so sexy even though I created him, re-reading my work I fell in love with the guy. He’s deep, and we get to know his true nature through snippets of information and his friends, as much as his thoughts.
It’s a love story and I hope readers love it as much as I loved writing it.

Excerpt 18+


His heart was beating so hard he thought it might be moving his sweater. He didn’t intend to, but his needs washed over him, and he held Lily’s face still, kissing her until he felt weak with it.

She was responding. He felt her arms go up around his neck to keep him kissing her.

He held her to his body and let the pleasure of this pressure sink into his cock. His erection was thick and hard against Lily’s stomach. He heard himself groan just a little and Lily was holding him now around the waist moving slightly against him. He slipped an arm around her waist to keep her where he wanted her. His other arm around her shoulders, he kissed her until he couldn’t breathe.

Lily rested her face against his when he stopped the kiss.

They breathed together, their eyes closed.

Lily felt the melting sensation in her lower stomach and wetness of wanting to make love between her legs. She couldn’t open her eyes nor move from Ash. If he had laid her on the floor and pushed that enticing erection into her, wet, swollen, and throbbing with need, she would have welcomed it. She felt her breasts heavy and nipples erect. She wanted his mouth on them.

Ash held her close.
