Hey folks, the fabulous Jove Belle, lesfic author and regular at the Women & Words blog, has been on an ambitious blog tour that has spanned the globe (and boy are her arms tired…ba-da-bum).  Today, I have the pleasure of hosting her here so she can share a bit about her new book, Cake, published by Ylva.  And who doesn’t love Cake?

Take it away, Jove…


Hi everyone! Even though this blog post is showing up on Cindy Rizzo’s site, I’m actually Jove Belle. Because Cindy is so kickass, she loaned me her blog for the day. Now, I know that she normally says important words about important things, but I’m here to talk about fun stuff, like lesbian fiction and Cake.

Cake is not only a delicious dessert, it’s also the name of my new release. Like the dessert, Cake is a sweet treat, except when you read it, it won’t go straight to your hips. Cake is a novella length erotic romance. Basically, that means the two main characters get to have lots of sex to go with the romantic plot.

Check out the blurb below, then hop over to Ylva Publishing to pick up a copy of your own.

One last thing, because it’s a food themed book, I’m donating ten percent of the royalties to the United Nations World Food Programme. They feel the poorest people on the planet, and I really appreciate the work they do. You should check them out. Maybe make a donation if you can.


Kelly and Elana’s relationship is a recipe for disaster. First, they meet at a wedding, and that never works. Second, Kelly’s older brother is marrying Elana’s ex-lover. And third, Elana is still painfully, undeniably in love with said ex.

When it comes to other people’s lives, Elana Verdad is an expert. As a licensed psychologist and life coach, she helps people overcome obstacles. Her own life, on the other hand, is a disaster. Her lover left her for a man, so she drove over his mailbox accidentally on purpose. Now, not only did the judge take away her driver’s license, he also assigned her to community service at the local women’s prison. In what may be her worst idea ever, Elana decides to crash their wedding.

Kelly Miller may not understand her brother’s rush to marry his girlfriend, but when he asks her to bake his wedding cake, it’s not as if she can refuse. She’s in the catering business after all. At the wedding, she meets a beautiful, complicated, and seriously damaged woman. Although Kelly knows it’s crazy, she’s drawn to her nonetheless.

Despite the reasons they shouldn’t be together, there’s still an undeniable something between them. All they need is a chance to enjoy their slice of the cake.
