Now a top 100 contemporary romance author!

Posted 25 November 2014 By Polly J Adams

I just saw this morning that I’ve broken into the top 100 contemporary romance authors list at Amazon!

Top romance 100 at Amazon!So far, the highest I’ve hit is number 87, which is pretty exciting 🙂

Why the sudden climb? It’s on the back of two things:

The current success of my new rock-star romance serial Let’s Make This Thing Happen. All three parts came out this month and have been doing well at Amazon. The opening part, Backstage Pass, is still available at the knock-down price of 99 cents.

And the massive success of the BDSM romance boxed-set Club Alpha. This features the exclusive first publication of my novella Escape, along with novels and novellas by a fabulous range of authors, including Terry Towers, Selena Kitt and Adriana Hunter. It’s currently sitting at number 126 of all books at Amazon, and number 104 at Barnes and Noble. We’re still running a Rafflecopter draw with big gift-card prizes to help publicize this one:

Finding The Limits (The Limitless Trilogy Book 1) by Harper Cole
I’m just your typical modern American woman. I work hard and I know how to handle myself in the boardroom and the bedroom. My promotion kinda sucks and kinda doesn’t; so yeah, it’s in London which is pretty grey and all, but it’s my chance to expand our company so I take it. And then he shows up. Andrew Walker-Wilkinson, all old-world charm and with a stubborn insistence on opening doors for me. He’s a dinosaur but he’s hot. When he tells me to do something, my body wants to do it – even if my brain tells me to run. I figure he might be good for a bit of fun. A couple of dates, nothing heavy. I thought he was one of the few good guys and I was fast losing my heart to him. I didn’t expect to end up in danger, snatched right out of my apartment and held in a country house – and when the perpetrators are the most powerful men in the City, not even the police can help… My involvement with him got me into this mess, so I don’t think he’s going to be the one to save me. Not unless I can convince him that he IS one of the good guys…

Excerpt

When she’d given Ray the ultimatum she hadn’t known what would happen next.

She’d already broken up with her husband that day; she didn’t think she could handle another break-up.

But now… now, after Ray had come through with shining colors, after he’d taken her out in front of the waiting press in a statement that couldn’t be more public – This is us, we’re together, we’re in love, deal with it – after all that, she still didn’t know what would happen next.

It was Rake who stirred up all the doubts again that evening, when he said that thing she kept hearing from the reporters and on Facebook and Twitter. “So tell me,” he said, in that deceptively charming Irish lilt of his, “what does Róisín make of all this?”

Róisín. Still Ray’s wife, but only ‘technically’ he had assured Emily. Why did it always seem to come back to Róisín?

And why did Emily find it so easy to go from high to low in next to no time?

Excerpt

“You okay?”

Selena nodded, and took another sip of her coffee. They were out for breakfast at a little diner a couple of blocks from their home, an early start before they headed on to work.

“You seem miles away.” Those dark eyes had a way of fixing on you and seeing deep.

“Just thinking back,” she said. “That was such a trip.”

“Amsterdam?” he asked. He knew her so well. He’d read exactly where her reminiscing had taken her, and that now was the moment when they would finally get things out in the open.

“I’ve never done anything like that before,” she said.

“Me neither.”

“It surprised me, I think–”

He reached out and put a hand on her forearm. “It’s okay,” he said. “We both got carried away. Place like that…” Before ending up at that party they’d wandered the city’s famous Red Light District, had a few drinks, and then gone to one of the sex theaters…

“There was a moment,” she said. “One moment that keeps coming back to me.”

He raised an eyebrow, prompting her to continue.

“You on your knees… watching Nadia go down on me. Your pants around your thighs. Your dick hard. Jerking off while you watched me and then that look of surprise on your face and you looked down and there was another hand on your dick. That blonde woman. Then, even as I watched, the way she just ducked her head down and started to suck you…”

A slight squeeze on her arm. “Like I say,” Martin said, “we both got carried away.”

She looked at him. For a man who could usually read her like a book, just sometimes he could be particularly slow. She covered his hand, where it rested on her arm. “No,” she said. “I don’t mean it like that, honey. What I mean is… wasn’t that just the most horny, sexy thing you’ve ever done? Seeing you turned on like that, watching you respond to a different touch. Such a turn-on!”

He glanced around – had she spoken too loud? When he looked back he was smiling. He must have started to realize he didn’t need to feel guilty, didn’t need to do the whole sensitive thing over that one wild night.

“What was she like?”

He looked down, away, then back up and fixed her with his look. “She did a thing,” he said, keeping his voice low. “Where she jammed her mouth tight around me and then ground down into my lap. I’ve never felt anything like it.”

“How so?”

“It was such an unexpected mix,” he explained. “Tight and hard, but then the softness of her tongue, the wetness… It was almost too much, too intense, but the kind of ‘too intense’ where you’re just begging for her to do it one more time.”

“Are you hard now?” She trailed a finger nail over the back of his hand, and then along his wrist to his forearm.

He nodded.

“Are you thinking of that mix of stubbornness and curiosity I have? Of how you know I’m just going to have to try that on you until I get it right, and that’s exactly why you just told me in such detail?”

That smile broadened, and he nodded again.

“And are you going to be horribly frustrated that it’s now eight-fifteen and I have to get to the office for a nine o’clock meeting?”

He shrugged. “That gives us fifteen minutes until you have to catch the train,” he said, “and I’m sure we can find somewhere discreet. I promise you: it’s really not going to take that long if you get it right.”

She sat back and slapped his hand, a little harder than she’d intended. He laughed and she laughed, too, then she stood, fixed him with a look, and said, “Well what are you waiting for?”

A Hundred Ways to Break Up (Let

“If there are ninety-nine ways to get together,
There’s a hundred ways to break up.”

Just how long can you hope to keep an affair with an international rock star a secret?

This thing between them could never work. Emily Rivers is a normal woman with a normal life and Ray Sandler is a very public celebrity… They come from such different worlds. But he claims to be enchanted by her, and insists there should be no barriers in their way. Can she believe that, though? Particularly when his life turns out to be even more complicated than she had first believed. When tragedy and angry exes threaten to pull them apart and their secret affair is about to go spectacularly public, can Emily do anything or has it all gone way beyond her control?

A story of secret romance in the world of the super-rich: an international celebrity and his unlikely BBW love. Steamy and passionate and full of the twists and turns familiar to readers of PJ Adams’ work, including the bestsellers Winner Takes All and Black Widow.

She’d been staring at her hands, clasped in his, but now she looked up at him. “Hold me,” she said. “Hold me, and don’t ever stop.”

Excerpt

“It works, you know. Those shades really disguise you. You could pass almost anywhere unrecognized in those.”

“Really?”

Emily loved that about him. The layer of innocence and naivety that undercut the worldly rock-star cool. The fact that she could say almost anything and his starting point was always to believe her. That said a lot about someone, and not just that he was a sucker for bad jokes at his expense.

She raised an eyebrow, and he got it. She was joking. The Ray-bans, the scuffed leather jacket and black jeans… there was no disguising that this was Ray Sandler standing before her, former frontman of the Angry Cans. Those Ray-bans could never disguise a face that had featured on the cover of almost every glossy magazine in the world, particularly when he’d often been wearing shades in the photographs.

He stood, slightly awkward, under a verandah draped with flowering clematis. I’ll get the car to pick you up at the station and drop you round at L’Auberge’s back entrance, he’d said. I’ll meet you there. We’ll be discreet.

Someone like Ray Sandler could never really do discreet. Not like Emily Rivers could: her whole life consisted of doing discreet.

Up until now, at least.

She took the initiative, stepped forward, put a hand to his chest and tipped her head up. Even now, a stab of insecurity stole over her: what if he didn’t dip his head forward to meet her kiss? What if she’d got it wrong?

He dipped his head.

His lips were firm, the contact brief, but with an impact that lingered. He kisses like chili. An utterly random thought, but it was the first analogy that came to mind: the way his touch lingered, the afterburn.

He was studying her, smiling.

Still so many pinch-me moments: she knew by now that this was more than just a groupie thing, or a casual fling, but still – this was Ray Sandler! She could still close her eyes and see those Angry Cans posters on her bedroom wall, from when she was a teenager.

“Shall we go in?”

He was still smiling. Smug bastard.

She peered towards the restaurant in what she hoped was a vaguely dismissive way. “I guess,” she said, and allowed him to take place his hand on the small of her back and guide her inside.

For Throwback Thursday: way back in July 2013 my first romantic suspense novel came out – The Object of His Desire. The response was great, including reviews like these:

“PJ Adams has creatively combined the erotic with a touch of romantic suspense added to that is a thrilling mysterious subplot…mixed all together and you get a fabulous storyline. I loved it!” – I Am A Book Addict And Proud Of It!

“Love, mystery, and a killer on the loose! What more could you want out of a good erotica romance thriller, right? Well this book has even more than that to offer… Read the book! It’s good! Really, really good!” – Penelope Jones, author of Iniquitous Solace

It’s a steamy billionaire thriller, full of twists and turns and intrigue, not to mention a spot of BDSM and blackmail, and it was great fun to write!

The Object of His Desire by PJ Adams

The Object of His Desire by PJ AdamsWhen Trudy goes to her estranged brother’s wedding, the last thing she expects is one of those moments: a handsome stranger, their eyes meeting across a crowded room… a tempting, but dangerous stranger. Determined to find out more, she discovers that dark secrets bind him to her brother; she also learns that he’s the kind of man who gets what he wants, and what he wants right now is Trudy.

Introducing her to the world of the super-wealthy, he showers her with designer clothes, shoes, and diamonds, whisking her off to dinner dates by private jet… what more could a girl want?

But as she finds out more about him, Trudy begins to wonder if she can ever love a man she can never fully trust. A man involved in murder and blackmail, who may just be using her as an alibi. Should she run or let herself fall for him? And will he give her a choice?

A passionate erotic romance, where scandals buried away in the past lead to murderous intrigue in the present, in the intensely steamy world of the super-wealthy and powerful.

Extract:

Even now, I’m unsure whether it was a genuine Jane Austen moment or the worst of clichés: eyes meeting across a crowded room, for heaven’s sake.

What can I say?

I was nervous, in a crowd of mostly strangers and distant acquaintances.

I was feeling flustered after a difficult journey and finally arriving at this little chapel in the middle of nowhere later than I’d intended – I hate not being in control.

I was unsettled by the rush of mixed emotions in my head. I was about to see my big brother again after far too long; despite following him across the Atlantic to England we’d drifted ever farther apart over the last couple of years.

I was thrown by the realization that his best man was Charlie, the ex who could still wrap me around his posh little English finger after all this time.

Under these circumstances a girl can surely be forgiven a lapse into cliché. No?

§

I’d driven for nearly four hours to reach this remote little Norfolk chapel. It had taken far too long to escape the tangle of London traffic, and even longer driving through the winding East Anglian lanes trying to find the place.

Deep breath, Trudy. I was here. I’d made it on time.

I stood outside the chapel and straightened my three-quarter length Anoushka G dress. Deep cornflower blue, with scooped neck-line and a lily fascinator pinned to my long auburn hair, even I’d admit that I felt good in my wedding outfit.

I realized I was falling back on coping strategies I’d developed in my teens: a constant interior monologue of commentary and pep talks.

You look good, Trude.

That dress will make up for all sorts, and you can get away with those sucky-in Magic Knickers you bought in desperation, because you just know you’re the only one who’s ever going to see them.

Nice shoes, by the way.

Whatever it takes.

I recognized a few of the faces of the guests milling around in the churchyard. They were Cambridge buddies of Ethan’s. When I’d first come over from New Haven, I’d hung out with him in his college halls for a few weeks before landing my temporary job at Ellison and Coles, a wonderfully quaint traditional publisher with offices just off Covent Garden, right in the heart of London.

As we waited to enter the chapel, people smiled at me and nodded, but they were all in their own little groups and no one seemed particularly interested in me. I didn’t mind. I wasn’t in any mood for small talk, just yet. Instead, I checked my cell phone, only to find that there was no signal. I opened my mail just the same, and glanced through emails I’d already downloaded.

“You’ve got signal? Or are you just bluffing so you look busy even though you’re here on your own and nobody’s talking to you?”

I didn’t look round. I didn’t have to.

“Bastard,” I said softly.

“But a good-looking bastard, right? You always did say that I scrubbed up rather well.”

I turned. Honey-blond hair, sharp blue eyes, and the way the tuxedo and neatly pressed pants hung on his lean body… I took a deep breath and tried not to find him attractive.

Charlie didn’t look a day older than when I’d last seen him over a year before, ducking a flying ash tray as he backed out of the Islington apartment we’d shared back then.

“Last time I saw you–”

“You were a lousy shot. I only ducked to make you feel better about your aim. See? Even then I was looking out for you, babe.”

“I only missed because I didn’t want blood on the carpet. It was deliberate.”

“You preferred that dent in the door?” The ash tray had made a nasty gouge in the wood-panel door on impact. I’d never got round to fixing it: my little memento of the year with Charlie.

“Okay, so I misjudged that one. I should have hit you with it.”

“You look good, Trude.”

“Too damned right I do. You think I’d come to my brother’s wedding and look like shit?”

I was smiling by then. Our arguments went like that: they either got more and more intense or we’d end up laughing and wondering what we’d been fighting about.

“It’s been a long time, Trude.”

I leaned forward and kissed him on the cheek. He smelt of Issey Miyake and cigarettes.

“Shouldn’t you be inside with Ethan? I assume he’s turned up?”

“Fresh air break,” said Charlie, tapping the cigarette-box-shaped bulge in the breast pocket of his tuxedo. “You know how it is.”

“Haven’t you given that stuff up yet?”

“Everyone’s got their vices, Trudy. Even you.”

I raised one eyebrow and fixed him with a hard stare until he was forced to look away. If the occasional vodka and tonic too many and a tendency to over-stretch my credit cards on Karen Millen and Jimmy Choo were vices, then yes, Charlie had a point, but he was pushing it.

I looked around again. The chapel was set in a stand of pine trees, a short distance from a sprawling country house, all tall windows and mock classical columns. The landscape was so flat here: fields stretching away to another line of dark pine trees, and the sea beyond. I don’t think I’d ever seen a landscape so haunting, so weighted down with sadness.

“I need a drink,” I muttered. I don’t know why I was so tense. There was no bad feeling between me and Ethan; we just hadn’t seen each other for a while. A bit of awkwardness, that was all.

“Later, Trude. Later.”

“So how did my brother end up getting married in a place like this? Does all this belong to her family? Is that it?”

One further element of embarrassment was that I’d never actually met Ethan’s fiancée, Eleanor.

I didn’t know much about her at all. Very English, was how Ethan had described her on the phone, way back when they’d just started to realize they were getting serious. An English rose, Trudy. Can you believe that? Me, with my very own English rose?

I thought he was a bit scared then, feeling out of his depth with this girl and her landed family and their English ways.

“Family with money,” said Charlie. “It’s all about who you know. Connections.”

That was when it happened. My Jane Austen moment. My cliché.

My attention was snagged by movement in the chapel doorway and I turned, thinking Ethan must be emerging and now was the time for me to go and hug him and sweep away the distance that had grown between us.

Instead, it was a guy I’d never seen before.

He was in a tux, this newcomer. He was about six foot, and his shoulders were square, almost as if he was wearing a quarterback’s shoulder pads. He was either an athlete or he spent far too much time looking after himself in the gym.

So: first impression was okay, but nothing to write home about.

And then… that Jane Austen moment.

He peered around, as if lost, and then his eyes fell upon me. It was almost as if he recognized me, as if he’d been waiting all his life for me… but then realized he was mistaken, he didn’t know me at all – exactly that kind of double take.

He looked away, and then glanced back.

His eyes were dark, but when they settled on you it was as if you’d been fixed by a hawk. A raptor, eyeing his prey.

I shook myself, made myself look away. I couldn’t believe I was actually blushing.

Eyes meeting across a crowded gathering.

It was a cliché. I was flustered by my late arrival and by the tense undercurrents of the occasion.

That’s all it was.

Nothing more.

And yes, perhaps I protest too much.
