Husband Rollover FOR WEBThe craziest of the four girlfriends in the Husband Series has finally been pinned down by the man of her dreams in this stand-alone, full length, sexily-ever-after erotic romance. Here’s the skinny on the plot:

Fritha Wynde is a free-spirit, sleeping with whoever grabs her fancy, especially if the grab feels good! She has work that she loves, friends who let her wear rainbow-colored bridesmaid dresses, and girlfriends’ babies to cuddle. There’s not a thing about her life that she wants changed, until trouble walks into her feel-good teahouse, Bohemian Brew.

Trouble is a six foot two restaurant critic—Max—who has the audacity to ridicule the Banchee Tea, her signature brew, in his annoyingly sexy Brit accent. It’s time to retaliate and a low blow is in order—below the belt to be exact—but when Max discovers how delicious Fritha is, he’ll do anything to have her, including rolling over and playing dead.

Prude meets promiscuous in the fourth book of the Husband Series, bringing all four girlfriends together as Fritha tortures the one man who grabs her fancy along with her heart.

And if you’d like another little tease…

My Past is My Past

My past is my pastThere’s a new meme doing the rounds #MyPastIsMyPast – and it snagged my attention because being “in the moment” and not living in the past or the future is my current spiritual practice.

I’ve got friends that I’ve known over forty years, and occasionally we drift down Memory Lane recalling events from wayback, both good and bad. The idea has always seemed to be that “the unexamined life wasn’t worth living” so we would spend hours dissecting past events, trying to see how they impacted on our beliefs, our biases or our values. Often this was accompanied by a feeling of regret, that If only things had been different, our lives would now be easier.

When this meme turned up, it really made me assess that, and I suddenly realized I should have no regrets. My past has shaped the writer that I am and that’s something to feel immensely grateful for. If I hadn’t had frightening things happen to me, euphoric things, crazy things, sad things, bad things, I wouldn’t be able to create characters who could authentically live through the everyday traumas (and some extraordinary ones) that most people expect out of life, and fiction.

Losing someone you love, feeling desperately alone, longing for something you can never have, the terror of opening your heart to love, the euphoria of feeling loved, the security of family, of girlfriends, and the heartbreakingly poignant experience of bearing and raising children.

All these things and so many more are in my past. I don’t live there anymore. But my characters do. And this is one of the most delicious parts of being a writer – having characters become real on the page and watching them go through life-changing transformations, with all the emotional upheaval that entails.

I’ve just finished writing book 3 of my Husband Series, HUSBAND HEEL, and this one has really put me through the wringer! Louella’s story was hard to write because it’s so emotional. I should have seen that coming. Repressed people usually have spectacular meltdowns when the proverbial finally hits the fan. But despite the exhaustion of writing such deep emotional scenes, it’s been so lovely to see her soften and grow as a person. And sexy! Wow, I had no idea she’d be so uninhibited (neither did her bodyguard Nick!), so that was a real revelation.

My past is obviously not dead. It’s very much alive and living through my characters and their thrilling experiences. But I can honestly say I don’t live there anymore. I don’t dwell on the past or wonder about it at all unless someone brings it up. I think that’s healthy. I hope that’s healthy.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this, your experiences with accepting and even feeling grateful for the past. We’re all on this rollercoaster ride of life together, and I’m eager to learn from others…

TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Louise Cusack

I might be writing sexy now, but I didn’t start off that way…

TELL US YOUR BACKSTORY with Louise Cusack

My writing career started when I was five. I overheard someone talking about the missing Princess Anastasia, and how she came from Russia where the Cossacks lived. I came from suburban Brisbane where the Cusacks lived, and that link was enough for my tiny brain put the two things together. Almost instantly I began to believe that I was Anastasia, secreted inside a Brisbane family, for my own protection.

My little brother used to hide my dolls, but I stopped worrying about that, because I was suddenly sure he wasn’t my brother. My real brother was back in the magical land of Russia, where I imagined all sorts of enchanted things might occur.

A harmless enough fantasy, you might imagine, and perhaps easily forgotten, but somehow the story stayed in my mind, and the little princess grew along with me. As a teenager…

Release news: a new erotic romance series

I’m thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Book #1 of my new Husband Series of erotic romance novels with a side of laughs. Here’s the back cover blurb:

Husband Sit FOR WEBHusband Sit: Jill Wilson is fresh out of a ten-year relationship so boring she slept through half of it. Thirty-something, no children, no house, blah. The glamorous potential she and her three best friends shared as starry-eyed schoolgirls feels very far away, until an unlikely job appears – Husband Sitting – being paid by rich wives to keep their cheating husbands ‘happy’ at home while they skip off on vacation.

Not the sort of job a nice girl would do, but the ten thousand dollar a week paycheck is exactly what Jill needs to stop her little sister ending up in a Bangkok jail. And maybe, just maybe, the sex sounds exciting too. Unfortunately, there’s one complication: gorgeous Finn with his sexy green eyes and his gigantor… you know.

Love was definitely not in the contract, so in desperation to wipe Finn from her memory banks, Jill embarks on a bed-hopping frenzy. After all, the best way to get over one man is to sleep with another. But will Finn let her go? And as her emotional baggage arrives with an over-weight tag, can she believe in the fairytale of imperfect people ending up perfect together?

Crazy meets desperate in this erotic romp that nails the highs and licks the lows of one woman’s struggle to reach sexily-ever-after with the man of her dreams.

Husband Sit will be released on Amazon Kindle for $3.99 US, on 17 February, 2016. But if you like a bargain you can pre-order Husband Sit now and pay only .99c US.

I look forward to seeing reader reviews on Amazon, and please feel free to share this page on social media (which will earn you my eternal gratitude!). If you’d like to see details of future books in the series, hop over to my Husband Series webpage.
