Hi Everyone! Happy May!
To celebrate the unofficial start of the warmer summer weather, I’m devoting the month of May to hot summer romances!
Quite a few of my Amber Quill Press romances take place in the summer. Maybe that’s because the weather’s warm and people can go outside and have fun. Or maybe it’s because the nights are steamy and humid and people need to get out of their clothes….
We’re starting things off (appropriately enough) with a look at A Midsummer Night’s Delights. This scorching-hot Amber Quill Press novella was a November 2008 best-seller and also appears in my Naughty Nobles anthology, along with A Most Unusual Princess and The Dark Lord.
Here’s a summary, a very mild excerpt & some great reviews!
At this Midsummer Ball, couples pair up everywhere—but not for dancing!
Young newlyweds Julian and Annabelle are miserable. Their arranged marriage is lacking everything—especially sex. Julian suffers from a lack of confidence and is harboring a secret urge. Annabelle’s longings go unnoticed and unfulfilled, no matter what she tries. But all that changes when they are invited to a Midsummer Ball. Their unconventional hosts, Vincent and Sabrina, introduce them to a world where their most intimate desires and hidden passions are explored—and fulfilled. Swapping and naughty games are just a few of the surprises awaiting them…
Julian pressed his eyelids shut. His heart hammered so fast it felt like it would burst. His lower body ached and pulsed, burning with a raging need. He slipped his hand into his breeches and stroked himself. Vincent’s words swirled through his mind. Could he, should he, go into the bedchamber and take part in this wild sexual game?
Lord knew he wanted to. His body was ready…but the thought of taking charge and making love to Annabelle in front of another couple scared him. What if they mocked him or told someone what he’d done?
And how had Annabelle been convinced to do these things with another woman? Until today, she’d seemed so proper and innocent. Had she been waiting for him to unleash this lustful side of her?
He opened his eyes and glanced at the wall separating the two bedrooms. Everything was quiet in the other room. Annabelle wasn’t making whimpering sounds anymore. What was going on in there?
Smokin’, 4 Stars! Looking for an author who isn’t afraid to push the envelope in erotic romance? Then take a stroll down the latest literary lane and you’ll find the blazing talent of Kelli A. Wilkins who has gifted us with her take on a secret summer ball that opens the eyes of two unsure newlyweds.
A Midsummer Night’s Delights is a story that unknowingly draws you in. Subtle teases and heated scenes ebb and flow around the central characters and before you know it, not only are you eagerly turning the pages to see what sexual situations unfold, but also there grows a strong concern for Annabelle and Julian’s outcome. You won’t be disappointed with this piece – you’ll be curious, become titillated, and leave aroused.”

4.5 Blue Ribbon Rating! “What a romp! A Midsummer Night's Delights is a delight in itself! I really felt for poor Julian and loved how he “rose” to finding the solution to his predicament. And Annabelle proved to be an apt pupil for her lessons. They are endearing characters with a real problem and a rather thrilling, fun answer. Good writing and lots of action make this a book to recommend!”

And for those of you who are looking for even more spice... I wrote a sequel called A Midwinter Night's Delights – and that story is even hotter than this one!
