Celebrating A New Raider's Bodyguard Tale from Cheryl Dragon

Today we're celebrating the release of PUSHING PENNY, Cheryl Dragon's sexy BBW BDSM Romance with Resplendence Publishing.

A lover of unusual things, Cheryl Dragon enjoys writing unique stories with sinfully hot erotic romance or suspenseful mainstream paranormals. Never at a loss for ideas, there are plenty of stories in her brain waiting to be written. Her two favorites book settings are Las Vegas and New Orleans...where anything can happen!

Cheryl lives in the Chicagoland area with her deaf albino cat. By day she crunches & analyzes numbers as an Assistant Controller for a division of a large international conglomerate which leaves the creative juices free for her erotic romance and paranormal suspense novels.


PUSHING PENNY - A Raider's Bodyguard Tale by Cheryl Dragon

Going to Italy with a sexy man should be hot but for Penny it's all business. The plus sized designer of plus sized fashions met Grayson Raider at her best friend's wedding, and now, he's her bodyguard. While she doesn't expect trouble, Penny's rich Texas family is overprotective. She has no reason to protest - Grayson makes her feel safe and beautiful.

Grayson knew the moment he met Penny that she was the challenge he'd been looking for. Confident in her work, Penny needs to let him lead in the bedroom. His Dom side enjoys giving her pleasure and pushing her limits. Being tied up naked by a man she's paying to protect her is hot enough, but when he starts using mirrors and fashion to drive her crazy, he might just push Penny right out of her comfort zone.

  16. Thanks everyone!!!

    I got stuck at the day job...sorry:)

    This is book 2....Brian will get his own book, he's next;)

    There are four planned so two more to come!

    I love the cover too! The artist told me that the model really is a size 20 which isn't something you see too terribly much....


  17. i lovee thatc over honstly I love when people write about BBW too mainly because not every woman is a size 2 and is sad when books stereo type because bigger women r just as beautifula s smaller women so i LOVE that cover! congrats on ur newbook cant waitto read it for sure

  18. I love a story where the heroine looks like me and the majority of women I know and not some pencil thin creature. I like that bit of realism and that she's comfortable with herself make me applaud even more. I wish more heroines were like this.

    Congrats on this great sounding new release!

  20. Hi Cheryl!
    Great cover and congrats on the release!

  21. Congrats on the release. It is nice to see a book that doesn't center around a skinny model type.


  22. Thanks everyone! Penny is very much NOT skinny:)

  23. Congrats on the new release. I'm so glad to see a heroine who is full figured in a book.

  24. Congrats Cheryl! I think that it's great to have books where the heroine isn't skinny because then I can relate to what the character is going through. The cover is HAWT!

  28. Oh I am so jazzed that Penny's brother Brian gets his own book - loved him in just the excerpt!

  29. Congratulations on the release of your latest book Cheryl. I've never read your work. Sounds like I've been missing something....OK, a lot really! Thanks for the giveaway too.

  30. I though I like your work with the HOT release. Now you come out with a plus size woman & a Dom man.... This could not have been better writen to my tastes if you looked into my brain (or my life)!!!! Did you have to release it AFTER I already spent all my book budget (yes, I know there is still 1 1/2 month in the year, I am that much of a book junkie). Good thing xmas is coming :D
    Good luck with the release & congrats with the Launch Party

  31. I know I missed this contest, I have had sick kids and haven't had much time to get on the comp, but I gotta say this book looks really good and I love reading characters that are a little on the heavy side. I've only read one other book like that and I loved it. Makes the character more real and it's easier to relate with them. Congrats on the new release, I will need to try and get ahold of this book
