I’m so happy to be a part J. Kenner’s tour for her newest book, Have Me which released on November 4th! We’re excited to have a guest post and teaser image. I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to add this book to your TBR list.
I am so thrilled that Have Me is out and that readers are getting to experience the honeymoon with Nikki and Damien Stark!
Have Me is the first official Stark Ever After novella (though technically Take Me gets grandfathered in, as it fits the description!).
Basically, what happened was that I wrote Complete Me, sat back, and realized that five seconds later I already missed these characters!
As a reader, I love books that don’t give you a lot after the happily ever after, because I like to imagine that for myself. But I quickly realized that a) these are my characters, so that doesn’t apply!, and b) Stark Trilogy readers wanted to know more.
And, hey, since the readers wanted more and I wanted more, I wrote Take Me as an epilogue to Complete Me.
But, like a girl faced with a refrigerator full of cheesecake, I just couldn’t stop with one bite. And so I pitched “Stark Ever After” to my editor and publisher … and thank goodness they loved the idea!
So Have Me is the first “Stark Ever After” novella — that is the first novella that gives me (yay) and readers (double yay) the chance to go back and revisit what is going on with Nikki and Damien. So far, I have about five fleshed out in my mind, some dealing with business issues, some with the continuing mysteries/drama that were raised and dealt with but not entirely resolved in the series, some dealing with family stuff, you get the idea.
Which means that I had an AMAZING time going back and writing the honeymoon for Nikki and Damien. (There is drama in Have Me … but not as much as in Take Me or the Trilogy or even in upcoming novellas. Sometimes you have to let the characters just enjoy each other, you know?).
And what is even cooler about Stark Ever After is that it gives me the opportunity to introduce new characters who will be featured in spin-off trilogies, such as the super-sexy Jackson Steele, who is the hero of the first Stark International Trilogy, which launches in April with Say My Name. (he is HOT!)
As for who else I would like to see on honeymoon … ooooh! I think any of the heroes from the Most Wanted series would be fabulous to follow. Maybe Angie and Evan should get their turn, too?
ABOUT HAVE ME
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes an erotic, emotionally charged eBook novella from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner. Following the novels in her blockbuster Stark Trilogy—Release Me, Claim Me, and Complete Me, as well as her tie-in novella Take Me—Have Me continues the story of fan favorites Damien Stark and his new wife, Nikki Fairchild.
Our wedding was everything I dreamed of, and now the honeymoon is a living fantasy. To be Mrs. Damien Stark is the ultimate rush—to know that our claim to each other is real, our fierce passion sealing our bond. My kiss is forever his, his touch is forever mine.
We both harbor deep scars from our pasts, and we’ve done everything we can to lay our ghosts to rest. But there are still dreams that haunt me, and people that threaten to tear us apart.
Our shared ecstasy makes me feel alive, and I’ll do anything to keep Damien close. He is my future, my hope, my every want and need. And once you’ve tasted that kind of obsession, nothing can make you give it up.
