Allison Hobbs is known for her titillating, salacious novels—Big Juicy Lips, Bona Fide Gold Digger, Dangerously in Love, and Climax. She published her 15th novel, PUT A RING ON IT, this past summer; fans can’t seem to get enough of this grand dame of erotica fiction. This fall, she returns with SCANDALICIOUS (Strebor/Atria Books; October 2011; $15.00) a novel where scandal abounds as a couple takes on new lovers in the quest to save their marriage.
Allison Hobbs introduces us to Solay, a woman who went from baking in her kitchen to opening Scandalicious, a trendy cupcake shop known for its gorgeous and dangerously delicious cupcakes. Practically married to her business, Solay does not have time for romance or its complications.
After nine years of marriage and two kids, Chevonne is bored and her husband Lincoln is starved for physical attention. When the couple seeks help from a relationship counselor, he suggests they take a bold step and explore an open marriage. Six months later and happy with their new situation, Lincoln and Chevonne enter Scandalicious looking for some naughty treats. Sparks fly between Lincoln and Solay, and Solay is both shocked and thrilled to discover that Chevonne doesn’t mind sharing her husband.
What Chevonne doesn’t expect, however, is the emotional connection that appears to be developing between her husband and Solay. Is this really what the doctor ordered?
Known for writing provocative and controversial novels, Allison burst on the literary scene with her highly successful debut novel, Pandora’s Box, in 2003. A prolific writer, she is the national bestselling author of fourteen novels and novellas of multiple genres, including paranormal and fantasy. Allison is one of the contributing writers of Cinemax’s Zane’s Sex Chronicles, Season 1. Her novel, Double Dippin’ was nominated for the 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award.
