Ella Frank is celebrating Valentines Day BIG TIME! She is giving away TEN e-book copies of her latest book, “Entice (Exquisite Series)” PLUS, she has provided us with a teaser of her upcoming release “Blind Obsession” (below!!). Thank you so much, Ella!!! These sound awesome!
<—-Here’s the synopsis of the just released “Entice”
What if everything you think you want isn’t what you actually need…
Dr. Shelly Monroe is a woman who doesn’t shy away from going after what she wants, but lately good sex has been hard to find. Shelly’s become increasingly frustrated with the men she’s been dating and the men she believes are the right choice.
Joshua Daniels is certainly not even close to the right choice. In fact he is exactly the wrong choice. For one thing, he’s Mason Langley’s best friend and best man. Second he’s too much of a risky complication for Shelly to even consider.
Then why can’t she stop thinking about how delicious he looked that first night she met him at Exquisite? Why is it so imperative to keep her lusty desire for a man that doesn’t meet her preconceived mold hidden from Lena and Mason, her trusted friends?
It seems unreasonable that being with a man completely wrong in theory could somehow feel so right. Then why is it the more she sees him the more enticing he becomes?
And here is the blurb AND teaser for her upcoming release “Blind Obsession”
Chantel Rosenberg’s passion for music and life had never shone brighter than the time she spent in Bordeaux France. It’s a time when feelings arose and desires ran deep, a time that fundamentally changed her life.
A man living in seclusion, Phillipe Tibideau is haunted and plagued by memories he cannot disregard. Choosing to live a quiet life in his Chateau surrounded by the vineyards of France, he’s left his passion for art behind.
However, the time has arrived to tell his side of a tale. A tale that has depicted him as a ‘beautiful monster’ and he’s finally allowing someone close.
Close enough to ask questions. Questions he’s not sure he wants to answer. Questions about her.
For up and coming journalist Gemma Harris, the pursuit of truth is what drives her and when a job of a lifetime presents itself there is nothing in the world that will stop her from taking it.
Even if it does mean leaving her home for several months to stay at Chateau Tibideau, with him.
This is a story of what happens when three passionate lovers collide and the desire for truth, art and music merge.

When I arrive at the studio at 10 a.m I can detect the distinct smell that comes with oil based paints. He must have been working this morning I surmise as I make my way into the sun filled room. There’s no sign of him yet so I go ahead and sit down in my chair, pulling my notebook out, waiting for him to appear.
I don’t have to wait long, not five minutes later he enters with two cups in his hand. His eyes hold mine as he makes his way toward me and I find I can’t smile or actually do anything but stare as he finally stops handing me one of the porcelain mugs.
Finally I muster a half smile reaching out to take it. He seems different this morning, agitated in some way. I wonder if he’s feeling uncomfortable due to the stair episode. Just as I’m about to ask if he is okay, he sits down and explains.
“I didn’t sleep very well last night. I suppose I should apologize in advance for any – what should we call it – asshole episodes I may have.”
Shaking my head, I take a sip of the tea and then place it on the desk beside me.
“Do you have them often?”
Finally I get a somewhat hesitant smile from him as his eyes narrow and his mouth shifts. Truly the man’s face is not like any I have seen before. While it’s rugged and masculine in its own way, he is so intensely alluring in another it’s hard to tear your eyes away.
“Do I have what often?”
Cautiously I remind him of his own words, “Asshole episodes?”
Arching a brow he seems to think it over for a second. “I’m not sure. You’ll have to tell me.”
“We could just start later.” I assure him but he shakes his head.
“No, no. Let’s start now.” he responds as I cross one leg over the other.
His eyes drop to my legs and I have to remind myself that now is not the time, and he is not an option. He is a job. An intimidating and intriguing job.
“Ok, so tell me. What did you show her the day she came back to the chateau?”
This is the first time I get a full on, wouldn’t you like to know, smirk as he settles back in his chair. “Would you like to rephrase that question and be a little more specific?” he questions shutting his eyes.
I take the opportunity to watch his throat and mouth as he explains further, “There were plenty of things I showed Chantel in the chateau Gemma. So depending on where in the story you want to be, you need to be much more specific.” His tongue came out then and moistened his full bottom lip, “Or perhaps that’s exactly where you want to be hmm, between Chantel and I?”
As my heart starts a rapid tattoo in my chest I allow my eyes to move up to his face and find he has one eye open watching me. He closes it and queries again, “No?”
Clearing my throat I think quickly and then rephrase my question.
“Chantel writes she is coming to see you the next day because you want to show her something.” I stop to scribble in my notebook, “So what did you show her on day six?”
