Author Gioconda Lyss
I became acquainted with Gioconda when she joined the Secret Cravings Publishing family. As a debut author, she accepted my invitation to write a few words about her journey into the world of romance writing.
Her message inspired many readers, I’m sure.
Published in September, her erotic novella, Heaven on Earth, has already gained several 5-star reviews at Amazon.
Here’s a bit about the story:
Gwen McAllister and Desmond Blankenship have both had their share of disappointment in love and marriage. Gwen is a divorced woman who swears never to love again. Desmond is a businessman who finds his wife in bed with a friend.
The two meet at a party in Phoenix and soon begin a long-distance relationship. While Desmond knows Gwen is the woman he wants to be with, Gwen is reluctant about facing her feelings for Desmond.
Just when Desmond is ready to declare his true feelings for Gwen, Gwen’s life take an unexpected turn. Leticia Martinez, Gwen’s long- time friend and occasional lover, makes an unexpected visit. At first, Leticia and Desmond express an instant dislike for one another.
Will Gwen have to choose between the two people she loves the most, or will they make the relationship work for all three of them?
