Colors of the Rainbow Hop

MFRW Colors of the Rainbow Bloghop
It's time for the Colors of the Rainbow Blog Hop! This 3-day hop for authors and readers of GLBT fiction is hosted by the Marketing for Romance Writers (MFRW) Organization. Many authors are involved and you'll have an opportunity to sample their novels through excerpts and more.

And, there are prizes to be had! Be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs for your chance to win at each stop. For my giveaway, I'm offering an authorgraphed copy of my bisexual polyamorous Victorian-era love story Loving Leonardo. Or, if you already have it, then the winner's choice of any ebook in my backlist. :)

Anyone who has ever loved knows what it's like. Love strikes you like a lightning bolt. The heart really has no say in it. Love is what it is, even the word is too small to contain it. To the French, this astonishing and overwhelming love at first sight is called Coup de Foudre -- literally struck by lightning. 

My Loving Leonardo happens to be a story about just that. My lovers unwittingly fall in love, and their feelings exist across societal boundaries of gender and the roles people played in Victorian society. The story is told in two books: Loving Leonardo and Loving Leonardo - The Quest.

Loving Leonardo is a reader-interactive tale full of art references. The main character, Nicolas Halstead, is an art historian who compares life to art. Were the reader to look up his art comparisons, they'll see exactly what Nicolas sees. I chose the artworks and artists very carefully. I hope you enjoy the details.

Oh, and by the way... Coup de Foudre reads like kuda-foodra. :) 

Here's the story

"...hands down, it was the most erotic book I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I loved the ending and the way it signaled to a sequel. I can't wait."
--Author Marie Jermy
