Ultimate Night's Delights - Q & A About the Book




Hi everyone,

Readers have asked me a few questions about my latest erotic historical romance, Ultimate Night’s Delights. The book is the third and final story that started with A Midsummer Night’s Delights and continued with A Midwinter Night’s Delights. Readers were curious about the writing process, the characters, and more, so I’m sharing some answers!

Q: Why did you write a trilogy/series?
A: I didn’t – at least not on purpose. A Midsummer Night’s Delights was written as a stand-alone title. After it came out, I moved on and wrote a lot of other romances. I had no intention of writing a sequel, but readers asked me about Vincent and Sabrina’s backstory and I starting thinking about the characters. I knew they had more adventures to explore, so I wrote A Midwinter Night’s Delights. I had no plans for a third book either, but after writing a few more romances, I came back to Julian and Annabelle and knew I wanted to wrap this up.

I consider the books to be a trilogy more than a series. Each story was written as an individual read, so anyone can read any of them in any order and not be confused. Start with Midsummer and go through to the end, or pick up Ultimate and then go back to see how it all started.

Q: How do you know the series is really over?
A: I’ve wrapped up the loose ends and left the characters in a good place, like I did with my “Royal Desires” trilogy (A Most Unusual Princess, Dalton’s Temptation, and The Pauper Prince – which I also never intended to be a trilogy!). Those books were conceived as stand-alone titles, but I fell in love with the characters and knew I had to follow them to a natural conclusion. In Ultimate Night’s Delights, Vincent declares he’s not hosting any more balls—but that doesn’t mean the fun will stop for them. Readers will just have to use their imaginations!

Q: How do you keep the plot and sex fresh in each book?
A: I think giving myself space (and years) in between each book helped me come up with new and interesting plots and sexual encounters for my characters. Each book has an overarching sexual theme Midsummer – discovery (all this is new to Julian and Annabelle), Midwinter – self-control (Annabelle and Julian have to learn to control their urges) and Ultimate – sharing (they share their knowledge and talents and help other shy couples). I kept the overall theme for each book in mind as I wrote, and then let my imagination take over.

As for the plots, for Ultimate, I knew I needed something more than just a naughty ball, and after brainstorming, I thought of Vincent being blackmailed and disgraced. Then I had to devise a clever way for him to get out of it!

Q: Tell us about Lono and Lobo. Will they have their own book?
A: Lono and Lobo were introduced in Midwinter.  Readers met them briefly as they doled out wicked punishments to Annabelle and Julian. Although they took part in the activities, I didn’t give them their own sub-plot.

However, I brought them to the forefront in Ultimate. I made them part of the plot, told their backstory, and even revealed their true names. I like them a lot, but right now I have no plans to give them their own story. However, if you’ve read my gay paranormal, Killer in Wolf’s Clothing, pay attention to the scene where Deke and Larry go to the Alpha club. I’ve included an inside joke there!

Q: Of the three books, which is your favorite?
A: This is hard to answer. All my books are like my children, I can’t choose a best or a favorite. When I started plotting Ultimate, I went back and reread the beginning of Midsummer. I hadn’t read it in years, and I was hooked! Midsummer is my husband’s favorite, but he hasn’t read Ultimate yet!

Q: Will any of your other books have sequels?
A: I don’t have any plans for them now, but I did consider a sequel/follow-up to Trust with Hearts. It would be a short novella centered on Sherrie’s cousin, Dave. I also thought of maybe doing a story about Everett from A Perfect Match. (Readers, if you’re interested, let me know!!) Right now, I’m working on a new paranormal and toying with ideas for another gay contemporary.

Here’s the summary to Ultimate Night’s Delights. Excerpts are on my site www.KelliWilkins.com and blog: http://kelliwilkinsauthor.blogspot.com/.


Julian and Annabelle are back for a final ball!
The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer and Midwinter Balls changed Julian and Annabelle forever. Freed from their inhibitions, they now help other shy couples explore their sexual urges and hidden desires.

But life on Vincent and Sabrina’s estate is anything but tranquil. The notorious Duke of Blackwell has discovered the secret about the naughty balls and is out to destroy the marquis.

Vincent refuses to deny the rumors about the “anything goes” parties he hosts, and turns to his friends for assistance. Together, they devise a plan to defeat the Black Duke…and still find time for a few erotic games.

Next month, I’ll be back with paranormal romances!
Happy Reading!

Ultimate Night’s Delights - An Inside Look & 2 HOT Excerpts


Hi everyone!
Today I'm sharing an inside look and two hot excerpts from my latest erotic romance from Amber Quill Press, Ultimate Night’s Delights
 
It’s the third and final novella in a series that began with A Midsummer Night’s Delights and continued with A Midwinter Night’s Delights. Although all three stories are connected, they each stand alone as individual reads. I never intended to write a trilogy, but the characters keep popping up with my head, and I knew they had more stories to tell!  

When I started thinking of the plot, I wasn’t sure what direction to go. I knew there had to be something interesting (beyond a naughty ball) that raised the stakes for everyone, and I thought about blackmail. (It’s always a good motive!) From there, I developed the idea of the Black Duke out to destroy Vincent. Then I had to devise of a clever way to tie it all together at the end. This is going to be the last book in the trilogy/series. But just because Vincent’s games will end, it doesn’t mean the characters still won’t have fun off-page!

I think fans of the first two novellas will find this one to be a satisfying conclusion to the series.

Ultimate Night’s Delights
Julian and Annabelle are back for the final ball!
The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer and Midwinter Balls changed Julian and Annabelle forever. Freed from their inhibitions, they now help other shy couples explore their sexual urges and hidden desires. But life on Vincent and Sabrina’s estate is anything but tranquil. The notorious Duke of Blackwell has discovered the secret about the naughty balls and is out to destroy the marquis.
Vincent refuses to deny the rumors about the “anything goes” parties he hosts, and turns to his friends for assistance. Together, they devise a plan to defeat the Black Duke…and still find time for a few erotic games.

Here are two hot excerpts:
 
Annabelle pulled on the leg restraints as Vincent pumped into her. The orgasm she so desperately craved was out of reach.
“Good girl, hold on. I’m close.”
Annabelle saw that Julian and Sabrina had changed positions. Now Julian knelt behind Sabrina on all fours, screwing her fast. Sabrina’s large breasts jiggled as he fucked her.
“Yes!” Vincent tensed and grunted as he came. She bucked her hips up, hoping that Vincent’s orgasm would make her come, as well. He quivered inside her, then sighed and lay still.
“Please…please…keep going,” she begged, writhing on the bed. If only Lobo would release her hands, she could touch herself and relieve her wicked pain.
“You want more cock?” he asked as he pulled out.
“Yes, the cream makes me so hot, I need it.”
“Lobo, ball her until I return,” Vincent ordered, as he stood.
She was going to be screwed by Lobo? Her body throbbed at the thought. Lobo released her hands and stripped out of his black breeches. Annabelle reached up and stroked his limp cock with one hand, while squeezing his hairy balls with the other. Lobo gasped, and his penis grew from a thin noodle to a stiff shaft nearly as long as her arm.
Annabelle pulled him to her, eager to taste his meat. Lobo bent forward and she wrapped her lips around the head of his cock. He winked at her as she sucked him.
After a minute, she released him, and Lobo walked to the foot of the bed. He mounted her, then shoved himself inside, filling her to the core. She curled her arms around his wide shoulders as he fucked her hard. Lono and Lobo never spoke, but they obeyed orders without question—and it was always fun!
 
***
 
Julian lay on his right side, facing Ivan. He kissed him deeply, enjoying the hot feel of their tongues entwining. Ivan had loosened up quite a bit since he’d blown him, and he was glad. He knew the pain and frustration of being denied a secret desire. Julian sighed as Ivan jerked his cock faster.
“Is this good?” Ivan asked.
“Yes, perfect.” After kissing in the sitting room, Ivan had led him into his bedchamber. The drapes were drawn, blocking out any external light. Candles placed around the room gave off a soft glow.
After stripping and climbing into the massive four-poster bed, Ivan had insisted on closing the bed curtains. Even though they were locked in the suite, he was concerned about privacy. Julian understood all too well—his first encounter with a fellow his age had been rudely interrupted.
For the last ten minutes, they had alternated between kissing and rubbing each other’s cocks. Ivan was hesitant to touch him at first, but once he tried it, he liked it. This was a perfect way to spend the afternoon, sucking and kissing a cute man. Ivan was innocent, yet eager. What else would he want to do?

Ultimate Night’s Delights - hot new erotic romance - just released!





Hi everyone!

My latest erotic romance from Amber Quill Press, Ultimate Night’s Delights, was just released. It’s the third and final novella in a series that began with A Midsummer Night’s Delights and continued with A Midwinter Night’s Delights. Although all three stories are connected, they each stand alone as individual reads.

Readers and reviewers fell in love with the first book and wanted a sequel, so I wrote one. In the second book, I gave a little backstory about Vincent and Sabrina and explained how they met. In this book, I share some insight on two secondary characters, Lono and Lobo. (Readers were briefly introduced to them in the second book.)

I think fans of the first two novellas will find this one to be a satisfying conclusion to the series. Here’s the summary:

Ultimate Night’s Delights
Julian and Annabelle are back for the final ball!

The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer and Midwinter Balls changed Julian and Annabelle forever. Freed from their inhibitions, they now help other shy couples explore their sexual urges and hidden desires.
