I'm delighted to have fellow Ellora's Cave author Lexi Post on my blog today, telling us a little about her hot new release, Passion's Poison. And that sure is a smoking cover!

Lexi is also hosting a giveaway so be sure to enter the Rafflecopter contest at the bottom of the post! Good luck!

Thank you, Christina, for having me on your blog. I’m very excited about my recent release, Passion’s Poison, because, well, just look at that cover! That’s Zach, the hero of my story. But before I say anything about him, I have to let everyone know that I write erotic romances inspired by the classics, so this story is inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story “Rappaccini’s Daughter.” Only my story is not short at all! Hawthorne’s Beatrice Rappaccini is poisonous, and so is mine. Only mine releases her poison through sex to stay alive which then makes her partners ill, so a long term relationship is out of the question.

In enters Zach Woodman, and yes, the cover artist got him just right. He’s a former logger turned chainsaw artist. He does very cool carvings out of huge logs. His life is great except he has always wanted a marriage like his folks have. The problem is despite being engaged twice, he is still unmarried. Why? They died. Yup. Both of them in freak accidents. He is convinced that he is fated not to have a wife at all and keeps his relationships to three nights of sex and no more. He fears if he gets too close to a woman, she will die too.

Sounds like these two could have a one-night stand and be happy, doesn’t it? Except “feelings” make things complicated. Those and Bea’s six fathers, ex-boyfriend, hippie mom, outspoken grandma and the writer of the anonymous letters telling Bea to stay away from Zach. But don’t worry, this sexy man gets more than his fair share of hot nights. Seriously, a guy that hot just had to!

So enter the rafflecopter for a chance to win. I’m giving away an ecopy of Passion’s Poison to one lucky person. Good luck!

Always, Lexi

Blurb of Passion’s Poison

Beatrice Rappaccini is tired of the one-night stands that keep her alive. Tired of the illness she causes when she releases her sexual poisons into her partners. But when she meets Zach Woodman, everything changes. Desperate for what she can’t have, she puts her heart and life on the line, ignoring the anonymous letters warning her to stay away from Zach.

Zach Woodman, logger turned chainsaw artist, has the perfect life, but no one to share it with after the deaths of the women he loved. Fascinated by the sexually experienced yet naïve Bea, he promises himself he will end their hot relationship before fate takes another beautiful woman from the world.

But he discovers Bea has no idea how to have a relationship, and he is perplexed by her strange behavior, hippie mother, six fathers and her request to give him every man’s sex fantasy. It is only when he might lose her that he realizes he must make a decision that will break his heart either way.
