Kelli’s Quill Newsletter - Welcome Autumn Issue








Hi everyone!

Welcome autumn! This is my favorite season, and I’m pleased to be sharing news about my new gay romance, A Secret Match
plus info on the upcoming Moon Shadows horror anthology, and links to guest blogs.

Let’s get started!


Kelli’s New Gay Romance, A Secret Match

Was just released! A Secret Match is Kelli’s third gay romance. This erotic contemporary is set in the world of professional wrestling and already got a great review. The main character, Everett, had supporting role in Kelli’s other wrestling romance, A Perfect Match.  


A Secret Match

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?

A Secret Match
is available in ebook and paperback formats. Order your copy from:

Read all about A SECRET MATCH - hot new gay romance





Hi everyone!

I've been busy guest blogging, doing interviews, and basically sharing the news about my new gay romance, A Secret Match. I happy to say that the book is now available on Amazon and B&N. The links are:
 

A few readers have asked... is A Secret Match the sequel to A Perfect Match?
 
Yes and no. I’d call it a follow-up more than a sequel. In a sense, it’s a continuation because A Secret Match takes place in the same world of professional wrestling. Nick, Blaze, Vin, Danni, and Ev are all carryover characters from A Perfect Match. But that book showed how Vin and Danni met, and Ev played a small role in that story. A Secret Match is all about Ev and Josh, and Vin and Danni have supporting roles. Each book stands alone as an individual read, and they’re both pretty hot!
 
I'm sharing a big list of links - read guest blogs, interviews, excerpts, and more about A Secret Match here:

A Secret Match - NEW Release - hot excerpt & links






Hi everyone!
My new gay romance, A Secret Match, is now on Amazon in Kindle format. (The paperback is yet to come!) Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Match-Kelli-Wilkins-ebook/dp/B00N9E2RRI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1409960823&sr=8-4&keywords=kelli+wilkins

Here's the book summary and a spicy excerpt:



A Secret Match
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? 




Excerpt:


“Maybe we’ll take a swim later,” Ev said as he closed the bedroom door and picked the box off the nightstand. “This is for you.”
“A present? For me?” Josh smiled as he took the box.
“Well, technically it’s for both of us.” Ev bowed his head. “I thought…we might…you know. Oh, just open it,” he finished in a rush.
Josh unwrapped the box. It held a bottle of lube, condoms, and a sample pack of flavored lotions. “This is sweet.”
“I didn’t get anything kinky. I wasn’t sure if you’re into that or what…”
“I like to play around, but that can wait for another time.” He pulled Ev close for a kiss and felt him quiver. “Are you okay?”
Everett glanced into his eyes. “Yeah, I want to do this, but…it’s been a long time.”
He kissed Ev and slid his hands down his wide back, caressing him through his shirt. The scent of Ev’s citrus and sage cologne made his heart beat faster. “Don’t worry about a thing. Relax. You’re safe with me. I’ll take care of everything.”

He kissed Ev again, and a shiver ran up his spine as Everett slipped his tongue into his mouth. Josh cupped Ev’s tight buttocks through his jeans, pressing their lower bodies together. They lost themselves in the embrace, touching and stroking each other.
“Let me make love to you the way you deserve. Now strip for me, Muscles,” Josh teased. “Everything but the pants.”
Everett took off his shirt and kicked off his shoes and socks. Josh grinned at the sight of Ev’s wide, tan chest and his flat belly. He stepped closer, trailing his hand down Ev’s six-pack abs. “Nice.”
Josh pulled Ev into his arms and nuzzled his neck, planting tiny kisses from his neck to his chest muscles. He kissed Everett’s pecs, then swirled his tongue around his left nipple. He spent the next few minutes licking and kissing Ev everywhere, slowly making his way down his stomach.
He kissed Ev a few more times, then unfastened his jeans. He unzipped them slowly, exposing Everett’s dark blue briefs. His erection was obvious. The pink head of his cock peeked out over his underwear. “These look tight.”
“Yeah.”
“Don’t be shy. Talk to me. Don’t be afraid to make some noise. I like to hear encouragement,” Josh said, toying with the edge of Ev’s briefs.
