Promo Day with Mia Downing

Hi, I’m Mia Downing! I just released the third book from the Spy Games series and I love writing erotic romance. It’s fun to give the characters angst and drama to work through and then get to use the sex scenes to further develop their romance. In real life I’m fairly boring—married for 18 years, have two kids and a small farm. Don’t pity me—I like my life boring. I get enough outside excitement from the books I write!

To celebrate the release of Spy Games: Endgame to Amazon, The Wild Rose Press is graciously offering for sale the first two books in the Spy Games series. The sale is taking place at all distributors! Now is the time to get a jump on this great series.

The Wild Rose Press is offering my back list of books on sale for 50% until Friday, August 16! Click the link above to visit my page there!

~*~Book 1—Spy Games: Trained for Seduction
On sale for $.99 until August 23!

This book started out as a bedtime story I told myself because Mr. Downing snores like a semi going up a mountain. I had never thought of writing it. It was just something to pass the time because I was either too lazy or too cold to get up and move to the couch. The story never quite worked the way I wanted until one night I wondered why Chase couldn't be younger—he'd been an older boss before—and why Kate couldn't fall for him instead of Jake... THAT idea worked like magic! Then I went all smutty on the idea and POOF, Chase and Kate’s romance was born.

Book 2—Spy Games: Lethal Limits
On sale for $.99 until August 23!

After I had submitted Trained For Seduction, my editor wanted me to do a series. It made sense for Jake to find a love of his own.The first scene that came to me was Jake waking up from being knocked unconscious, tied to a bed and a gorgeous woman standing over him. This isn’t Jake’s usual scenario but he’s easy to please, and I could see him being absolutely captivated (no pun intended.) Of course then I wanted to know who, what and WHY! I loved that Tia was so spunky and determined to get what she wanted. Jake loves that in a woman. 

What surprised me most in writing the book was that Jake had a past of heartbreak as well. It wasn't a planned thing, and so when he admitted it, I had to go back and weave in a bunch of plot points. I was so excited! I love when characters surprise me with motivation I didn't know about. 


Book 3—Spy Games: Endgame

This one came to me again like Lethal Limits, and I must have a thing for tying guys up because this time it’s poor Aaron bound to a chair. But I promise you, Charlotte didn’t do it! She’s merely rescuing him, but who can resist kissing a sexy actor trussed up like a Christmas goose? 

This book is a little different than the other two. After two books of very sexy and kinky reformed man whores I thought it would be nice to write about a guy with less experience. Aaron was destined to become a priest and left while at the seminary for many reasons. Charlotte has to get over a few issues but warms to the idea of teaching Aaron the finer points of sex!
