Thank you for inviting me to the blog today with my new release, ‘Jake Snow’. (September 20, release to Kindle)
The book is the story of Bethany Snow’s brother. Bethany is the leading female character in my erotic romance, ‘The Last Time’ and people who read the book early in its release always wanted to know more about Jake. I had his story in my head and so here it is.
‘The Last Time’ takes place on a movie location and that’s where Jake and Bethany, who are private investigators are sent by their agency to deal with hate mail being sent to a movie star there. It’s two years since his sister got married and Jake has been working cases alone. He’s tired and hoping to find love too when we meet him in this book. This time the story takes place in the fashion world and Jake gets caught up in the strange happenings in an atelier.
The idea for the movie location book came to me when I was invited to watch a shoot by an indie film maker. The idea for the high fashion setting for this book was seeded about the same time when I went to watch a fashion show with friends. I was on holiday overseas, with them. We had attended a dance theatre, and then later in the week a fashion show. I knew immediately that I would write a story about the world of fashion. The idea of placing Jake Snow in this world came after I had written, The Last Time.
A new romantic mystery from Amazon best-selling author, Elodie Parkes
Private detective, Jake Snow, has grown tired of working alone since his sister Bethany married, and stopped working on field cases with him. He's chosen less high-powered cases as he decides against teaming with another partner from the Black Agency. Gradually Jake realizes he wants the kind of love his sister found, and a different job...
When he's sent on what he thinks is a simple surveillance assignment, just before he's due to take his requested extended leave, he finds a tangled web of lies, and a fashion designer in trouble...
The question is will he also find love?
With steamy love scenes and a twist of fun, this book is 18+

“Jake.” Her voice was soft and low. It was an invitation to kiss her, touch her. Jake accepted.
He held her head and kissed her. He ran his tongue along her lips and when she opened her mouth, he slid his tongue against hers with a small groan in the back of his throat. It felt like heaven. He found the zipper at the back of her short, shift dress and pulled it down. She shrugged the dress off. Jake helped so that the dress fell around her waist. When she put her hands around his face, and nibbled his lips, Jake felt his cock go hard. He kissed along her shoulders and she had to let go of his face. She pulled his T-shirt up and traced her fingernails along his chest. Jake’s breath left him in a gasp of desire.
He unclipped her bra, cupping her breasts in his hands, and bent his head to kiss them. He sucked at them, making her nipples stand up. He trailed kisses back up her shoulder, neck, and cheek, to her lips, where he kissed her until he couldn’t breathe.
Pixie pulled his T-shirt up and he lifted his arms to take it off. They gazed at each other for a few seconds, and then she was unzipping his jeans. He wanted to be gentle as he pushed her dress up around her waist so that it bunched there like a lovely sash. Jake pulled her legs apart. He kissed her as she put her hand inside his shorts and gasped against her lips as she took hold of his cock. His instinct was to thrust into her hand because it felt so good and he couldn’t remember the last time a woman had her fingers around his cock. He put his fingers into her panties, sliding them down until he could trail his fingers against her soft folds. She’s wet, oh fuck, I want her so much.
