Hot Ticket Is Finally Here!

by Olivia Cunning

I'm so excited that Hot Ticket is finally in the hands of my fans. They have been waiting for this book for-freaking-ever. It was originally supposed to be released in October of 2011. And stuff happened. And the release was delayed. So when I say it's a relief that this book has finally seen the light of day, that is the understatement of the century. I feel like a giant boulder has been lifted from my shoulders. Especially since the book has been so well-received. Woot! The fans love it. Yes, some of them devoured it on release day (yesterday), and are already spouting their love for Sinners' bass guitarist, Jace Seymour. *takes a deep breath* I was a little worried. He's not your typical romance hero, but that's what I love most about him. He's different. Quiet. Shy. And short. Yep, he's only 5'6". But we're not shallow, so we don't care. We love him for what he is on the inside. Well, the outside is pretty cute too.


I don't know if other authors spend the weeks before a new release obsessively checking reviews, but I do. After the book comes out, I'm much less inclined to frantically refresh the reviews posted on Goodreads (and much more inclined to frantically refresh the sales ranking on Amazon). So yeah, that huge burden of "what are they saying about my book!?" and "is anyone going to buy this one?" is gone. Maybe I can concentrate on some writing now.

Am I prattling? I'm prattling.

I should prattle about the book.

Here's the smoking HAWT cover.

This cover would suggest there's bondage involved. Why, yes, there is. And does the heroine have a riding crop? Oh, yes, she does. And she's not afraid to use it.

Here's a lovely synopsis.
There are things in bassist Jace Seymour’s past that he is unwilling to share with anyone. To cover his guilt and anguish, he seeks dominatrix Mistress V (Aggie) to temporarily placate his inner turmoil.

Aggie doesn’t have much use for men–besides the power rush she gets when they’re begging for mercy at her feet–but Jace isn’t like her usual clients. His cool defiance and unexpected dominance in the bedroom drives her to distraction and quickly steals her heart.


When circumstances threaten Jace’s position in Sinners, Aggie must help him regain his rightful place in the band while showing him that time and love can heal all wounds.


Prepare yourself for an emotional ride! And some hot and steamy sex scenes. And some  hot and steamy love scenes. Yes, there is a difference.


I'll stop prattling about the book and prattle about a giveaway now.


Since most of the people who comment on my posts already bought the book (I love you fangirls!), I'm giving away a $15 gift card to either Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo or iTunes. That way, if you want this book, you can buy it in either paperback or ebook. Or if you want to start with the first book in the series, Backstage Pass, you can get that one. Or if you've read every book I've ever written and want to buy some playlist songs to accompany your reading enjoyment, go buy yourself some new songs. Playlists are at this link! Or maybe you want some scented oils in your bath while you read Hot Ticket. A pacifier to placate the baby while you read? Or you want to gift this book to a friend. Whatever. The choice is yours. Spend it all in one place.


Enter to win the $15 gift card by answering this all important question: Who is more likely to wear the cuffs in your bedroom? You or your significant other?


Are you from outside the US? You can win too. I won't hold your choice of continent against you.


I'll announce the winner tomorrow here on this post, also on Olivia Cunning's page on Facebook and Twitter. So if you don't already follow me or the Casablanca Authors blog, now would be a good time to do so. If you don't claim your prize within 24-hours, I'll choose a new winner.


Happy reading! I hope you love Jace as much as I do.

  1. Happy Release Day!! My current release hadn't been delayed as long as yours, but my fans were the same way--disappointed! :) And I have the same modis operandi (sp?)---check reviews, check sales stats. I try not to. It drives me crazy. But I like to save the lowest Amazon ranking the book can get and keep it as a keepsake! I was too busy to do it with A SEAL in Wolf's Clothing and that made the bestseller list--so I don't know how low it got! :)

    Handcuffs? My wolves absolutely don't believe in them. In the current story, I mention them and how the hero would chew them off if he was ever manacled. LOL :) They're too wild to be confined. :)

  2. Happy, happy launch day! WOWOWOW! Looks to me like this is one boilin' HOT, scorchin' HOT, steamin' HOT book that should be sold with oven mitts! Congratulations!

  3. This is such a terrific series, Olivia. Glad to see another member of the band hit the shelves--wish they belonged to at least a chamber orchestra though (eleven players, minimum, right?)

    And as for your question, the only beast in my bedroom these days is Chloe Upstairs Kit-teh, and putting the cuffs on her would be a dubious undertaking.

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only author who obsesses over these things. It's hovering between #45 and #47 on Amazon Kindle. Not sure if it's peaked yet.

    Grace I am cracking up picturing you attempting to put cuffs on your cat.

    Thanks for the congrats, ladies. Off to check Amazon again...

  27. OMG!! I'm behind on books, so many hot lovers out there. I'm excited, I still need to get caught up with the Sinners Sed , and now Jace is here, he's intrigued me from the first moment our eyes met across that smoke filled room. I know he'll be worth that wait. I know I'd be the one to do the restraining. Looking forward to picking up "Hot Ticket" dmf747@comcast.net

  30. My significant other would adamantly refuse to wear the cuffs, so if those were involved they'd likely be on me.

  32. lol it would be me. Here's a funny story. Many, many years ago my husband got it into his head he wanted to try something like that. He got a pair of nylons and tied my arms to be bed bosts. And then I proceeded to stretch them and I could totally reach everything and asked "what now." That was the end of that lol.

    Happy release day!

  45. Cannot wait to read this one! Husband cuffed me once. I liked it, but he didn't. He said it reminded him too much of the times he'd been arrested. I'm like "Oh, you choose NOW to have empathy?!"

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh im the one wereing the cuffs for sure...and id let Jace make it one hell of a Pleasure Party....
    Jace can make me beg anytime he wants....

    ReplyDelete
  47. If one of us was going to be in handcuffs... it would happily be me!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Pick me! Pick me! I'll wear the cuffs this time, I swear!!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. IF either of us would be likely to wear cuffs, it probably would be me...but I am most likely to start trying acrobatics to see if I can get out of them, lol. Good luck with the release!

    ReplyDelete
  50. And the winner is...

    *drumroll*

    Kristy, with comment #37!

    Thanks for leaving your email address. I'll be in contact.

  51. Can we take turns to be cuffed? ;) *blush* I liked the idea of being cuffed, but that said, I can think of sooo many things I want to do to my significant other when he's cuffed. I've got the kink on!

    Congrats Olivia on the release of Hot Ticket! I love the Sinners, especially Brian and his guitar fingers... can't wait to read Jace's story!
