Want to review an ARC of Re/Claimed?

Greetings bloggers and reviewers! Re/Claimed (Doms of the FBI 3) is due out in July. If you would like an opportunity to review an ARC of Re/Claimed before it comes out, please contact me. Here’s the link to the request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/15Y6VHPVa849oLgU_H3Uvi5wzMUmvQjMw-j2jgB_OkKo/viewform?c=0&w=1

I’m seeking honest reviews, especially from bloggers/reviewers who have read Re/Bound and Re/Paired and who have posted honest reviews of them on their website, Goodreads, Amazon, All Romance eBooks, or Barnes and Noble. The ARC has not gone through final edits or proofing, so expect some typographical errors at this point.

Both Re/Bound and Re/Paired have been selected for a number of honors, including Top Picks and Recommended Reads. Here is the blurb for Re/Claimed:

Layla’s wicked fantasies had already caused problems that left her with deep emotional scars, so when she got a second chance to live them out, she insisted on strict rules and boundaries.

Dustin agreed to abide by Layla’s rules because that’s the only way he could have her, but after a while, it wasn’t enough. He wanted the whole woman—the impulsive, stubborn parts as well as her sweet, generous side—and so he insists she give him a fair chance to prove he’s worthy of her love. He’s over the moon when she agrees to date him, even if she insists on a vanilla relationship.

Complicating matters is the return of her abusive ex-Master, a kidnapped child, and a human trafficking ring that’s been targeting teens from the community center Layla runs. When the investigation turns up nothing, Layla takes desperate measures that put her and Dustin in danger.

In Re/Claimed (Doms of the FBI 3), Michele Zurlo delivers another hot, heartwrenching, and stunning BDSM romantic suspense tale.

 

Warnings: D/s, kidnap/breaking-and-entering fantasy play, impact play, bondage, spanking, anal play, electric play, and some seriously sexy kinky footwear

Re/Paired is temporarily unavailable

In the past year, I’ve taken steps to do some things on my own, stand on my own two feet, and all that jazz. To this end I’ve launched a publishing company to handle the books whose rights will revert to me in the next five years. I’m also taking on selected others to publish. Since I’m so committed to self-publishing, I’ve purchased the rights back to Re/Paired. It’s temporarily unavailable because Loose Id no longer owns the rights. I’m revising it and giving it a little more polish, and it’ll be back in May.

Following that, Re/Claimed (Doms of the FBI 3) will finally see the light of day in July. I’ll post teasers as that date gets closer. If you’re a reviewer or a blogger interested in reading an ARC, please drop me a line at michelezurloauthor AT yahoo.com.

Alternatives to Letting Go

Some of you may have noticed that Letting Go is no longer available for purchase. Normally when a contract period is up and the rights for a book revert to an author, the author can revise and self-publish the book. However, the former publisher of Letting Go interprets the right of first refusal clause differently from other publishers. They insist that nobody else (not even the author) can publish the book until the rights from every book in the series revert back to the author. Because I cannot afford a lawsuit to protest this interpretation, I’ve decided to pull Letting Go from circulation. As the rights from all books in that series revert, I’ll be pulling them all. By the end of 2015, Hanging On and Two Masters for Samantha will no longer be available. I have plans to significantly revise the first four books and republish them after December 2018, when the rights to book 7 will revert to me. Books 5-7 will not be republished once they’re gone. I plan to incorporate elements of them into the revisions, so all is not lost.

I like to force myself to look at the glass as half-full. On the plus side, I’ll be able to significantly revise them and publish them according to my original plan. My imagination runs a bit darker than the parameters set by other publishers, and I no longer have to change my writing and plotting style to suit someone else’s guidelines. Freedom comes at a price.

They’re romantic suspense, so there’s an added element of danger. I have plans to expand that series as well. I’m purchasing the rights to book 2, and then I’ll put out book 3. Book 4 is in the works, but I don’t expect to have it done until 2016. Maybe late 2015. It depends on whether I change careers this year.

Kiss Me By Moonlight
Kiss Me By Moonlight

If you’re craving the angsty feel of a heroine and hero who make mistakes, love, and grow–if you want to laugh and cry–check out the Kiss Me Series. It doesn’t contain BDSM, but it’s a damn good story. Lacey and Dylan are two of my best creations.banner rough1

If you’re looking for some hot menage action and an action-adventure storyline, check out Dragon Kisses. Some of my readers who have said they don’t usually go for paranormal or shifter romancesgave it rave reviews. It’s definitely a different kind of shifterromance, and it’s more my style–especially book 3, which will tug at your heartstrings and make you cry.
