Release day: Lessons on Seduction

30 July 2020

Today is the official release of Lessons on Seduction by Estelle Pettersen (ebook and paperback, Black Velvet Seductions). Here’s the blurb:

When college student Sapphire Blake finds herself fresh out of a breakup, she is ready to embark on a new journey in her life. A dark, sensual journey. Freeing herself from the expectations set by her family, friends, and church, an innocent and unworldly Sapphire begins experimenting with her new casual lover, Vera Richland.

Julian Richland is ridiculously handsome, smart, and intimidating. This university professor finds himself enthralled in a sensual relationship with a woman willing to pay top money for his time in the bedroom. To pay off his debts and continue leading his lavish lifestyle, Julian discovers the world filled with sex, drugs, and lies may not be for him as he first thought. With his contract almost up, Julian has his sights set on a new endeavor.

When the pair are introduced by none other than Julian’s own sister, sparks are ignited as Julian sees past the conservative stigma Sapphire believes the world has placed on her. Instead, he sees a sexy vixen—and he can’t help but admit he wants her.

As the couple begins a dangerous, passionate liaison, secrets become exposed and lives are threatened. Will Julian be able to save his relationship with Sapphire and rekindle the fiery flame they share? Or, will fate have another ending in store? Find out in this thrilling and erotic new adult romance novel.

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

Lessons on Seduction is the first book of the Seduction erotic romance series. It is my debut fiction novel and took me two years to shape. It is about a young woman who breaks away from the expectations of her family and society, to discover a new world, where she dares to try new things. She develops a strong voice and becomes empowered as she stands by her choices, including who she chooses to love. Her lover is a college professor who teaches her lessons in love and keeps a dark secret. A few friends encouraged me to be bold and daring with my writing (which tends to be on the softer and sweeter side), so I dared and the result is Lessons on Seduction.

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