#FREE now -- #Transgender #Romance His Kind of Woman!

Good morning, everyone! I'm very happy to announce that my romance novella, His Kind of Woman is now available as a Spring Fling from Loose Id. This story is something of a follow-up to Uncollared, as it follows the love story of trans woman Venetia Varrano, who appeared in the earlier story.

This is a story about secrets and lies, but the secrets don't belong to Venetia. The fact that she's transgender is revealed early in the story (and those who have read Uncollared are already aware of it). It's Roy Girard, Venetia's love interest, who harbors the secret. His brother bullied Venetia unmercifully in high school, when she was known as Victor. Roy's afraid if she learns the truth, she'll no longer want to see him. But secrets always have a way of coming to light.

The story is also about forgiveness. Venetia must decide if she can forgive not only Roy, but his brother Travis as well.

Here's an excerpt for you:

He was just being polite, making sure she made it safely to her door, checking to see she wouldn’t dissolve into a puddle of goo after the scene in the cafĂ©. But she had other ideas.
At her door, she took the initiative and kissed him, crushing her breasts to him and practically grinding her lips against his. When she pulled back, she was gasping. “Do you want me?”
He licked his lips, and his eyes narrowed as he peered at her. She read his expression—Where is this coming from?—and knew he wanted to be a gentleman. He didn’t want to take advantage of her in a vulnerable state. The hell with that.
“Do you want me, Roy? Tell me the truth. Because I want you. Right now.” He didn’t need to answer because she felt his hard-on prod her pelvis. She kissed him again and holding on to his belt, pulled him inside her apartment.
After tossing her sweater and purse on the sofa, she turned toward Roy. He was as still and substantial as a mountain, as real, as dependable. She needed his sturdiness now, needed his strength. “You do want me, don’t you? But you’ve been afraid.”
He flushed like a boy being caught with his father’s Playboy.
“It’s all right,” she told him as she began to unbutton her blouse. “I understand. You’re worried.” She slowly undid the rest of the buttons until the front of the blouse fell open. “I say I’m a woman, but I used to have a man’s body. And you wonder—am I really truly who I say I am?” She slipped off the blouse and stood before him in her pale blue bra.
The heat of his gaze seared her as he stared at her breasts. Her nipples prickled. She unsnapped the front closure of her bra and let the straps slide down her arms. Her dark brown nipples jutted straight out at him, needing him to touch them, kiss them. Roy’s Adam’s apple bobbed, and Venetia could swear she heard him swallow hard.
She stood proudly for a moment to let him look at her. She had suffered for this body, not just physically, but emotionally, financially, in every way imaginable. Let her enjoy it now; let him enjoy it too. She basked in his admiration, but as the heat and urgency grew between her legs, Venetia knew it would not be enough.
She kicked off her pumps and shimmied out of her jeans. Now she wore only her lacy blue panties. She loved these panties, loved how sexy and feminine they made her feel, and now she saw how Roy loved them too.
The enormity of the step she was about to take suddenly hit her. Though she tried to steady it, her voice vibrated with fear as she spoke again. No backing down now, no running away. She slipped her thumb into the waistband of her panties. “There won’t be any surprises when I take these off,” she assured him. “My outside matches my inside now. I’m completely a woman in every way.”
As she began to pull the panties down, he stopped her. “Wait.”
She froze and her chest squeezed in disappointment. He didn’t want her?
He approached her, indicating the panties. “I want to do that.”

I hope you'll give His Kind of Woman a try. The novella will be free until June 19 at the Loose Id site, and will be $2.99 thereafter. In addition, my romance Uncollared will be on sale at $3.99 during the same period.

Have a wonderful weekend, all!
