Release Day for GO WILD

I have to admit this release date snuck up on me. For one thing, I've been busy getting married. And then honeymooning. And then recovering from the whole shebang. But publication dates wait for no one, even newlyweds.

So here it is, release day for GO WILD, which actually is oddly appropriate considering my newly married state. You see, GO WILD is about a woman who's terrified of marriage, and the man who's determined to get her to say 'yes.'

And no, it's not based on my relationship at all -- except that I very much understand the fear of commitment. Usually the men are pegged as the foot-draggers who'll do anything to avoid that trip down the aisle. But I've never really believed that. I've known many men who were eager to get married, and many, including myself, who weren't sure they were cut out for "forever after."
It turns out, I was only waiting for the right man.

Katia, my heroine in GO WILD, has a different story. Lars is the only man she's ever truly loved, but she's a free-spirited wild child who has a dread of being tied down. She wants Lars, she wants what he's offering, but she's afraid that her sexuality won't fit with the concept of one man for the rest of her life.

Lars has to find a way to convince her they can make it work, and that he's not scared off by her past or her adventurous nature. And boy, does he! Here's the blurb for GO WILD, out today from Ellora's Cave.

Go Wild

Juniper Bell

Lars loves Katia. Katia loves Lars. Lars wants to marry Katia. Can he convince his free-spirited lover that marriage will be as fun as her sexually adventurous single days?

Never before has Katia been tempted to give up her carefree ways. She’s deeply in love with Lars, but she doesn’t know if he can handle her wild side—or needs.

But Lars is a hard man to resist. The former Olympic champion won’t give up—not when he knows just how to please her.

The people of Wild, Alaska know the best way to survive winter is to let off a little steam. When Lars’ buddies hit town for Wild Nights, a notorious winter festival with one rule—“anything goes, nothing counts”—he jumps at the chance to prove he’s the perfect man for Katia.

He vows to win her over, even if it takes four rugged Alaska men and one wildly erotic night in a sauna.

Note: Features an extended ménage (M/F/M/M/M), anal play and references to bondage experimentation and sexual escapades of all types.

Click here to read an excerpt, and to buy GO WILD.

This is the first book I've set in Alaska, and I'm hoping to make it the first of a series of stories that take place during the Wild Nights festival. I mean, just think about the possibilities...

Okay, I admit, I already am. GO DEEP comes next, then GO FOREVER. Any other suggestions? Hey, sounds like a good idea for a contest! How about this--comment with a suggestion for another title in the series for a chance to win your choice of any book from my backlist.

Thanks for celebrating release day with me!

Congratulations on your marriage! The story sounds excellent and since I've enjoyed a number of your books, I'll have to check it out. I'm not coming up with any great titles, but:

go long :-)
go mad
go crazy

Yeah, I know, these pretty much suck LOL

PG Forte said...

Ooh...Go Crazy, I like that. Of course, now I'll have Prince in my head for days. lol!

Yay, Mrs Juniper! Congrats--on the marriage and the new release! You know I've been waiting a LONG TIME for this one. ;) Off now to buy it...

Meg Benjamin said...

Congrats on both your marriage and your book, Juniper. Sounds great!

Juniper Bell said...

Thanks all! And Susan, I love those title suggestions! I'd actually thought about Go Long -- it's a football term right? Too bad I know nothing about football. But I could learn. ;)

JoAnna said...

Congrats on getting married and your release.
I was thinking Go Long too but you are right it usually used with football. Person throwing the football tells the person catching it to go long.
Ok, so I have the Kanye West song Stronger in my head. So this is all I can come up with.

Go Stronger
Go Harder
Go Faster - this one doesn't really work for me :)

Kelly Jamieson said...

I had Go Long and Go Crazy in my head too!! And PG has Prince in my head...
Congrats on the release Juniper!

Caffey said...

Go Beyond
Go the Distance
Go Steady
Go For it
Go The Distance
Go Down
Go Crazy
Go Overboard
Go Insane

Interesting book to read. It is different then the type of books that I have been reading. It is always good to change up what I read.

Juniper Bell said...

JoAnna - I'll take Go Harder, thank you very much! Or even Go Hard works. Very nice!!

Caffey - Holy Mackerel, you came up with a bunch! I love Go Overboard, it instantly inspired all kinds of ideas. Thanks!

Sherry - Go Naughty is perfect, especially given the name of our blog! Great suggestions.

Lisa - I'm actually strongly considering Go Free, as it suits one of my characters perfectly.

Anonymous - Thanks for the suggestions -- I love Go Home -- maybe as the last in the series. I don't know why the link didn't work for you, it seemed fine when I clicked on it. Maybe try again? I really want you to read the excerpt too! LOL

m7c57 - I'm glad you found it interesting! You're right, it's good to change things up. Keeps life fun. ;)

Kelly - Thanks for the congrats! And now that Prince song is in my head too. LOL.

Okay ... now I'm off to choose the winner! Thanks everyone for playing!
