3 Nights of Delights - Erotic Romance Trilogy

Hi everyone,

Today I'm sharing a romance rewind about my super sizzling hot erotic romance trilogy that I call 3 Nights of Delights

This erotic historical/fantasy trilogy started with A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DELIGHTS. I also wrote two sequels: A MIDWINTER NIGHT’S DELIGHTS & ULTIMATE NIGHT'S DELIGHTS.

A Midsummer Night’s Delights introduced readers to repressed newlyweds, Julian and Annabelle. They were strangers trapped in an arranged, sexless marriage. To loosen them up, Julian’s father sends them to the Marquis of Demby’s estate to attend a Midsummer Ball. (And this type of ball isn’t for dancing!)

Julian and Annabelle meet the Marquis, Vincent, and his wife, Sabrina. Over the course of their visit, they learn how to open up and explore their sexuality. When they attend the Midsummer Ball, they shed their inhibitions while indulging in their wildest fantasies.

A Midwinter Night’s Delights picks up six months after the first book. (If you haven’t read the first story, that’s okay – each novella stands alone as an individual read. And yes, this book is just as hot – if not hotter – than the first one!)

In the sequel, we discover that Annabelle and Julian have taken what they’ve learned and gone wild. Ever since the summer ball, they have been overindulging in all sorts of lewd activities. Instead of being shy and repressed, they are more than eager to give in to their desires whenever (and wherever) the mood strikes – even if it’s at a formal dinner party. Needless to say, Julian’s father sends them back to Vincent’s estate to be disciplined and learn self-control.

And, Ultimate Night's Delights wraps up the story a few months later. This time, the marquis has gotten himself into a bit of trouble. Rumors about his erotic midsummer and midwinter balls has leaked to the general  public and certain members of society are not pleased. When his friends turn on him and a blackmailer sets out to destroy him, he turns to Julian and Annabelle for help.

Although the stories are connected, each stands alone as a single read. And each book has something for everyone: M/M, M/F, F/F, and all sorts of menage!

A Midwinter Night’s Delights is more intense than the first book. From the outset, readers know that Julian and Annabelle are being disciplined – but it’s all for their own good. I sprinkled in some B/D/S/M throughout the story (and at the ball) to make things interesting. It was fun to explore a different side to the games that take place at the estate house and watch how the characters reacted as they received their ‘punishments’ throughout the book.

After the release of A Midsummer Night’s Delights, some readers asked for prequel – they wanted to know how Vincent and Sabrina met and what their history entailed. I gave readers what they wanted. In A Midwinter Night’s Delights, Sabrina tells Annabelle how she met Vincent and how they got involved in their naughty games. 

The trilogy was a lot of fun to write and all three books have gotten excellent reviews. Excerpts, reviews, and full summaries are on my site: www.KelliWilkins.com and on the book page of this blog. 

Check them out and let me know what you think.

Happy Reading!

Until next time,

5 Star Reviews for A Secret Match!


Before I get started, I want to invite everyone to check out my new author page on Facebook. The link is:

I've added my book covers and will be posting excerpts, links to interviews, blogs, and more!

And, you may have noticed that the blog has changed! Drop me a line and let me know what you think of the new look.

Today I'm sharing some excellent reviews for my gay romance, A SECRET MATCH. Here's the summary:

Everett Kinkade is a world-famous professional wrestler and the sexy heartthrob of millions of adoring female fans. But Ev has a secret he doesn’t dare share with anyone. He’s gay.

After years of being Ev’s secret lover, Josh is tired of hiding in the shadows and wants Ev to openly acknowledge their relationship. Coming out is the last thing Ev wants and fears it will ruin his career.
One night in a moment of truth, Everett outs himself on live TV. There’s no going back, and his announcement sparks a firestorm of problems – both personally and professionally. He’s forced to come to grips with who he really is while facing down a tag team out to destroy him. 

Torn between living a lie and losing the man he loves, Ev has risked everything… can he find a balance between his career and his heart? 

Some Kind Words from Reviewers:

A Night Owl Romance Top Pick! 4.5 Stars: I found this book well written with an interesting plot. The ending is set in a way that leaves you with hope for Josh and Everett that while the road might not be easy they will tackle it together. I hope there is a sequel to see how Josh and Everett adjust to life now that everyone knows about them. The main characters and the secondary characters were fascinating and charming. Overall, I loved this book.”

5 Hearts! “I love the tone of how the book starts. I enjoyed the drama filled present with the far less dramatic and sweeter flashbacks of when Everett and Josh first met. The best part is the emotionally charged storyline just continues throughout the book and doesn’t just stop. Two thirds of the way through, once again I thought I could breathe a sigh of relief, but, no, I couldn’t. I know some people will be interested to know, there is some wrestling related kink too. This isn’t your average athlete-coming-out story and the use of wrestling probably helps that along. In short, this is an excellent read. Highly recommended to any fan of the MM genre.” 

The Book Vixen Gave it Four Frogs: Very enjoyable romance of an established couple at a crossroads. The wrestling plot was interesting for this non-wrestling fan as well.” http://www.thebookvixen.com/2014/09/book-review-secret-match-by-kelli.html#.VCMK8FdXiB8   

4 Stars from Zipper Rippers: “I really felt for both Everett's and Josh's predicament, I could well understand both their points of view. The world of wrestling seems very macho and Everett thinks if he comes out as gay, his career may be over in one fell swoop. But is his career worth losing Josh over? The tension between their two differing views felt very real and both were in emotional turmoil for a lot of the book.” http://zipperrippers.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/book-review-secret-match-by-kelli.html?zx=f1b7e189315e1cfe

Hearts on Fire Gives it 4 Hearts:The story focuses for the first half on how to make these two understand what they have together and the second on how to survive being a gay wrestler when there’s a homophobic tag team out for your blood (serious, too, they’ve already mangled one wrestler) and how to handle the manager who controls your career. I liked the story very much and I thought the ending was perfect.” 
“I think the idea of making Ev a professional wrestler was great because it's a career a lot of people don't associate with a gay man. There are plenty of sexual moments, and they work within the overall story. That's the main issue I have with romance books. I don't mind sex scenes if they work within the overall plot, and this works! I would definitely check out more books by this author.”  Lauren - http://shootingstarsmag.blogspot.com/2014/11/adult-review-secret-match-by-kelli.html
