Balance by Lucia Franco

A brand new series from Lucia Franco is here. Balance is an evocatively tantalizing journey into the forbidden. Professional lines are blurred and age is forgotten in this series that tips the scales of moral right and wrong completely off balance, taking the reader on one heck of a journey.

balanceAdrianna Rossi is no stranger to the rigorous demands required of her body. Years of pain and determination make her one of the best. Olympic glory is the ultimate goal, and she’ll do anything to achieve it. Even if that means leaving home to attend World Cup Academy of Gymnastics, a training center that serves one purpose—producing champions.

Perfection, precision, and dedication are required of his athletes. When two time Olympian Konstantin Kournakova is persuaded into training the young hopeful, he immediately regrets it. She doesn’t come close to his high standards. As the relentless pursuit of her dream keeps her striving, a passion is ignited within him.

Kova’s power and domination, coupled with Adrianna’s fierce tenacity, reveal there is more for her body to learn. Every interaction can be misconstrued, but there’s no mistaking the darkening of his gaze, the lingering of his touch, or the illicit image of his bare skin pressed against hers. Integrity is on the line. One toe off the beam and their forbidden desires could ruin everything they’ve worked for, throwing it all off balance.

WARNING: This novel contains explicit content.

What’s A Book Blurb?

A book blurb is a short description about your book. It’s meant to entice the reader to want to pick it up and read your story. It’s not meant to give the entire plot away. Sadly, however, I have seen a lot of blurbs with too much detail. Authors, you need to leave the readers wanting. If they learn all there is to know from the back cover, what’s the point of them buying the book?

Start off with introducing your main characters. Who are they? What troubles them? Keep it short and sweet. Two paragraphs, one for each main character.

Example:

Jackson Stone, confirmed bachelor, has always been a ladies’ man. Charismatic and attentive, women find him irresistibly charming; he has no problems wooing them into bed. Until Shelby Needles crosses his path.

Shelby is thoroughly acquainted with men like Jackson. Her ex-husband had a way with women too–long into their marriage. Recovering from a messy divorce, the very last thing she needs to do is jump into Jackson Stone’s bed; even if he does promise their coupling would be nothing short of explosive.

Next give us a short description of their conflict. What tests them? Sometimes you may include something that brings them together but pulls them apart at the same time. In this next example, I kept it short and demonstrated Jackson’s conflict.

Example:

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Jackson sets his sights on getting the fiery little redhead beneath him. But if he’s not careful, more than his stud reputation could be at stake. For once, he may have just met his match.

And that’s it! Give the readers enough to tease them, but don’t give them everything.
