Elodie Parkes: The Last Time

Thank you for inviting me to the blog for the release of The Last Time, my latest contemporary, erotic romance, from Eternal Press

Just a little about me to let your readers know who I am.

I live in rural England, United Kingdom and I work in an antiques shop as well as writing. I have two dogs that keep me fit with their need for walks. I love the countryside and the coast.

I write romance, contemporary, and erotic, with a twist of mystery, suspense, or the paranormal, now and then. I like to make the story unusual in some way, by a quirk in the tale.

I started writing when I was seventeen. Life intervened in my writing time and I stopped serious writing for some time. I started writing again seriously a couple of years ago, because I had so many stories in my head.



The Last Time

Actor Seth Carbery swears he will never fall in love again, that is until he meets private detective Bethany Snow.

Something strange is going on. Seth and other members of the movie cast and crew are receiving threatening letters, but no threat has ever been carried out... yet. Bethany Snow is sent on location by the Black Agency to investigate, and guard Seth Carbery against danger.

The case is not what it first seems and even when Bethany thinks it could be over, a new twist means she becomes a target.

Seth and Bethany find they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Who is sending the letters and why? Does Seth have a secret admirer or stalker?

With steamy romance, graphic love scenes, and a quirky story of what people do for love this erotic romance is for adults only.


Excerpt Rated 18+


He was holding her tightly against him. She felt the slight rasp of his unshaven face against her cheek as he transferred his kiss to the soft part of her shoulder, and began to suck, sending waves of sensation down her body. She traced the lines of his back muscles down to his hard bottom, and then, as they rolled onto their sides, she felt for him, hoping to curl her fingers around his erection. She wanted him inside her, and she moved her thigh to rest over his hip.
As she ached for more of the soft, wet kisses he now trailed across her breasts, she whispered, “Please put your fingers in me. Feel how much I need you.” He smiled, his mouth now against hers, his tongue tracing the seam of her lips. She felt his fingers tease her wetness and she tightened her hold on him.

Bethany could suddenly hear the sound of bells. They were far away and a nuisance because she was in the middle of a lovely dream. ‘What was that,’ she thought, as she surfaced from sleep? She blinked in the bright sunlight coming through her bedroom window, and knew that it could only be very early in the morning.
The doorbell was still ringing. Bethany sat up in bed and put her feet gingerly on the floor. She still felt unwell, and she walked to answer the door to her apartment reluctantly. ‘Couldn’t they just leave her alone for a couple of days?’
She opened her door.
Jake stood there looking frantic. “Bethany, I was really worried. It’s taken you ages to answer the door. You’re not still sick?” He strode into the apartment behind Bethany who was silent as she considered her answer.
She managed not to curse. “Jake, I have a really nasty virus. I’ve only been ill a day. What’s going on?” She started to make coffee.
Jake opened her fridge taking out a carton of orange juice. He found clean glasses in the dishwasher where Bethany had left them, and poured them both a glass of juice.
“Vitamin C will help. I had that same virus a couple of weeks ago and shook it off after a day.”
Bethany took the glass of orange juice from him, drinking some, before she poured boiling water on the instant coffee granules in the cups.
“Two days, Jake, if I recall correctly. What the hell are you here for anyway?”
Jake gave her a sympathetic look.
“We’ve got a job. Brandt is sending us to a movie set, well you actually, although I will come to the initial meeting for assessment of the situation.”
Bethany sighed and sneezed. She sat down on a stool at her kitchen table and looked at Jake menacingly.
“And you couldn’t have told him I was sick, you couldn’t have said you’d go on your own and I could catch up with you in a couple of days?”
Jake looked pained. “Who talks back to Brandt?”
