Nicolette Hugo joins us this Friday to tell us more about her new release, BOUGHT. It's the third book in the Unchained Vice Series, but can be read standalone. It sounds like a hot love triangle/threesome story, so let's find out more about it and about Nicole!
One woman fighting for her future, two men trapped by their past …
One taste of Jerricho Black, Dom for hire, and Scarlet Bailey knows she’s made a big mistake. It's not the sting of his crop but the intimacy that makes her come undone. The threat made all the more real when her husband hires his services for the next forty days.
Wrongly suspected of a crime he didn’t commit, on the run and in trouble, Jerricho needs the money Killian Bailey offers him. Sleeping with another man’s wife is nothing personal, but every day Scarlet slips deeper into his blood.
Killian tells himself he is not worthy of his wife, not after she got hurt on his watch, and not until he gets his revenge. Now he’s hired a man to give Scarlet what he can’t. So why does he want to hit the man?
Sometimes home feels strange and a stranger feels like home … sometimes the only redemption you find is the one you bought.
“Tell me.” Killian looked Black in the eye. “What do you cost for a day? A week?”
“What do you—”
“I want to hire you. For my wife.” There was real pain behind that statement. The words ripped up his throat, but he could bleed without wincing.
“I’ll pay you eighty grand for the next forty days.”
He got his first reaction, a tic in Black’s right eye.
“I’ve just offered you eighty grand to sleep with my wife, and you need some higher fucking reason?”
Tell us about yourself. Why did you decide to write in the romance/erotica genre?
Hi my name is Nicolette Hugo and I write erotic fiction. My stories are character-driven with a central theme of kink. I always knew I wanted to write about sex and power and characters walking the line between light and dark. It was either kink or vampires.
What “heat level” should readers expect from your latest release?
BOUGHT is scorching hot. In general, my books are explicit and so is the kink. I try to keep it real and raw. BOUGHT is a three-way romance, and none of the characters are shrinking violets …
How do you get ideas for new stories?
Anywhere and everywhere. The challenge is not coming up with ideas; the challenge is finding time to turn ideas into stories. Bought is a bit unique because it was written for a request—a friend asked me to write something from a male POV. While this has both male and female POV, it is predominantly a hero’s story, and there are two heroes.
What is your favorite romantic movie and why?
There are a few movies I watch again and again and never get tired of. Love Actually, The American President, 50 First Dates … oh God, I’m sure I’m going to miss one. I like romance with a touch of quirk and humor.
What do you in your free time when you’re not writing?
I try and be social. I can get a bit touchy about people wanting to do stuff when I am in the throes of writing. Luckily the people that matter, understand.
What’s the best way for readers to connect with you?
I love chatting books and meeting readers. You can find me on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/NicoletteHugoAuthor/
What are you working on right now?
The Unchained Vice series is loosely connected by character cameos. I wanted book you could read alone but where characters had really bit parts in other books so that it fleshed out a “world” for these stories to live in. In BOUGHT, readers meet the hero of my current work-in-progress, Eli.
What is your MOST and/or LEAST favourite thing about being a romance/erotica writer?
The best thing is I get to spend a LOT of time with really hunky men who fuck like legends. Worst? I have very little reading time now …
If love is the drug, sex is the pusher….
Nicolette writes erotic fiction with strong elements of kink. She loves exploring characters that move between light and dark in stories that bruise.
Residing in cosmopolitan Sydney, she lives on a love of indulgence, cats and corsets.
Always happy to talk books you can catch her on Facebook and Twitter.
