Release day: Drunk on Men

1 April 2017

Today is the official release of Drunk on Men: Volume 1 by Afton Locke (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

You may think it’s sloe fizz gin
But honey we’re sober, just drunk on men

When three African-American women meet at a resort on the Jersey Shore in the 1920s, they say goodbye to their old lives. Finding men as intoxicating as bootleg liquor, they pin their futures on happily ever after. But love can be worse than a hangover when the men’s flaws threaten to destroy them.

Hannah knows it’s time to replace her fiancé who died in the war, but the abrupt white man who rescues her from rough surf hardly fits the bill. Belle longs to ditch her latest meal ticket, but is the rich African-European owner of an upscale hotel out of her league? And while Edie struggles to face her upcoming arranged marriage, a rugged Hispanic-white fisherman decides to stake his own claim on her.

This 8-volume serial is a heady romance cocktail stirred with addiction, abuse, betrayal, and scandal. These women aren’t perfect and neither are their men. If you think you can handle it, read on and watch three steamy interracial relationships explode across the pages.

Afton dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Inspiration for this story struck ten years ago while vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland, a town where I spent many years of my childhood. At one of the hotels, I found myself in a hallway staring at endless framed drawings and photographs of turn-of-the century hotels. While old-time jazz played in the background, I was swept away to another time. Later, I transformed the resulting manuscript into a serial, because I love soap opera drama, and made it interracial.

You can find out more about this book at Afton’s website or buy it from Amazon.
