By Love Released: Book One by Cate Thorne

BWWM Billionaire Erotic Romance Novella With Mature Content for Readers 18+

"Rafe’s first thought was that he wanted to paint her as a Nile River goddess, her shimmering dreadlocks fanned around her head like sunrays."

Shawna Franklin’s life is challenging… taking care of her teenage brother and working hard in low paying, part-time jobs that barely covers the rent. It’s worth it though. She’s determined Jamie won’t end up like their deadbeat, druggie mother, or worse.

Each month, she earns a few extra dollars posing nude for a SoMa art studio. A proud and stunningly beautiful African American woman, she doesn't like exposing herself to strangers like that. But it's legitimate work and she’d do anything for her kid brother.

Rafe Adams has it made. A former marketing executive, he’s a handsome white male who cashed out early and will never have to work another day in his life. It’s all about the finer things in life now, with plenty of money and time to pursue what he loves, including his passion for art. There's only one thing missing, and money can't buy it.

When she disrobes in Rafe's class that first time, Shawna's grace and mystery grabs him and shakes him to the core. He has to have her, has to know her. He doesn’t know why. He just does.

She's overcome, too, by her own attraction to this striking man, but suspicious. What's his true motivation? Will he be just one more jerk who thinks she’s a toy to possess, to play with until he’s bored then tosses it away? Or… could he be the one?

Their worlds are as different as her black is to his white. Is it possible for such differences to come together and make something beautiful? Should she stay proud and independent, or take a risk on love and reach for her dreams?

Of course, choices are never that easy.

About the Author

Hello, Dear Readers!

I am a small-town country girl with big-city ambitions. Muscled hunks are my thing! I love reading bewitching tales of seduction and romance and passionate lovemaking with stunning men.

My first little girl thrills were from seeing the sexy studs in the underwear catalogues my gay uncle had lying around his cabin in the mountains. How come none of my boy classmates ever looked like that? But as all of us women know, a handsome male face and body are only part of the attraction. Hotness is the spice; imagination, kind words, inner strength and confidence, a romantic nature, and the hint of a naughty, bad-boy streak are the main course.

My fantasies take me all over the world, from walking hand in hand with a gorgeous guy in the moonlight on the ramparts of Mont St-Michel as the tide rushes in, to candlelight dinners with a dark, broad shouldered man in a tux in the splendor of 1920s San Francisco, to leaning back into the strong embrace of a rock hard and warm-skinned river guide after going over a Class V rapid on the Pacuare River in Costa Rica, to riding horseback on a dude ranch with lusty wranglers under a blue Montana sky that goes on forever.

You never know where I might go next. I invite you to come along with me and imagine the life of your dreams.

This is a great book but a teaser, I go to order the next 2 books but you don't offer them on the Nook. Why would you have a free book on Nook but not offer the next books to the series on the Nook?!!!
