Blurb:
Forty-eight year old art gallery owner Paul Strait loves the nightlife—wild parties, stiff cocktails, and even stiffer men! But his decadent lifestyle has grown lonely and now he’s looking for love. Some days it seems that what he wants must be a fantasy. Hoping that the perfect guy is out there he enlists the help of Madame Eve.
After all, a fantasy service like 1Night Stand should be able to deliver his fantasy man, right?
Josef Debross√© runs an exotic gay bar in the Caribbean known only to locals and select tourists. The many patrons coming in and out of his bar ensure Josef never has a shortage of lovers but he’s grown tired of being just a vacation fling.
Josef wants to be another man’s lover and partner, not a mere souvenir from the islands.
Lost in a dance of lust and allure, both men are thrilled with Madame Eve’s choice for them and feel an intense connection the moment they meet. Flirting over drinks quickly leads to the bedroom. But after their fiery lust has been quenched, the night goes from fantasy to reality without warning. Secrets and frightening pasts threaten to shatter the magical illusion of their perfect date.
Will this budding romance survive in the face of reality?




Excerpt:
“I am Josef Debross√©.” He had yet to release Paul’s hand—not that he had any complaints— and his blood warmed from touching a total stranger he’d paid to meet.
He let out a breathless chuckle, not surprised he’d been holding his breath.
“Paul Strait,” he replied, caught up in something...giddiness? Excitement? Sexual tension? He wasn’t sure, but he felt like a silly girl swooning on her first date. Almost as an afterthought, he added his signature tagline, “And I’m anything but.”
A rich resonant laughter danced around them, weaving a spell and capturing Paul inside it until he didn’t even know which way was up or down.
“C’est bon, Paul Strait,” he said, those hypnotic eyes sparkling.
When Josef released him, he had to resist the urge to take the man’s hand back and never let go, fearing he might disappear. Instead, he downed the rest of his champagne, scolding himself for being so ridiculous. He nodded toward the bar where plenty of stools sat open. “Can I buy you a drink?”
At the resort, everything was included, but it seemed like the most logical thing to say. Much classier than, “Are you wearing underwear?”



Q and A with Deanna Wadsworth
1. Let’s start out by getting to know you. Tell us 4 things about yourself that are not in your bio.
Well, my favorite cocktail is Black Velvet and diet 7up, lol
I grew up around gearheads, and I love sitting in the garage watching my husband wrench on his bikes, tractors and cars
I’m pretty damn good at a game of pool
I don’t have kids, by choice, but I am a great auntie!


2. If you could go anywhere, all expenses paid, where would you go?
Probably Italy, like in a villa overlooking wine country in Tuscany. I thought about picking Hawaii, but I WILL go there one day, but not sure I’ll ever be able to have the coin to rent a villa in Tuscany LOL


3. List three books you have recently read and would recommend
Hmmm….A Forbidden Rumspringa by Keira Andrews was fantastic (Amish romance) And if you’re after lots of sex, lol, A Bear Walks into a Bar by Eden Winters was a fun read. From The Ashes is a cinderfella story by Kayla Jameth which I’ve read a few times and always makes me smile


4. What do you always order in a favorite restaurant?
My fave restaurant is in Bowling Green, Ohio, called Reverends. I ALWAYS have a margarita, but I rarely order the same thing. I’m a foodie and I love variety


5. What do you hope to accomplish in the next 12 months?
I have almost finished anther KD Worth (FacebookTwitter) book, the sequel to THE GRIM LIFE, my first YA. I plan to write two more novellas, and finish the novel I started several years ago about a bisexual tattoo artist who falls in love with the brother of a girl he knocks up, LOL But since I am president elect for Rainbow Romance Writers, I am a very busy gal!


6. What do you like to read?
M/m romance, LOL I almost exclusively read m/m


7. What do you look when choosing a book to read?
I’m all over the place, fantasy sci-fi, contemporary, paranormal, historical. It just has to be GOOD writing, gay, and have a happily ever after


8. What do you need someone to invent right away?
Jeesh, this is a hard one! Hmmm… Rosie from the Jetsons LOL I need a maid!
9. What does the word "romantic" mean to you?
I’ve been married 19 years, and am still very happy so I know that romance keeps it alive. I enjoy writing romance too, but at this point in my life and in my books, “romantic” has more to do with loyalty, trust love, not just flowers and candlelit dinners. Any loving act can be romantic if there is an intimate connection between two people. Once I heard the word intimacy described as “Into me see” and I think that level of connection, while it grows over time, is the key to romance


10. Can you share something about your works in progress?
I’m having a hard time finishing my current WIP, not because of writer’s block, but because a character I really care about is going to die. I’ve never killed off a character I love, so it’s been very emotional.

Meet the author:
Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. She has served multiple board positions at her local RWA chapter and with Rainbow Romance Writers of America. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.
