Confessions In The Dark and Eight Ways To Ecstasy Cover Reveals

We’re still in the dead of winter here in Upstate New York, so it’s hard to believe that spring is right around the corner, but here it comes! There’s a lot to look forward to over here, including not one but TWO book releases, and I’m so excited to share the covers for them with you!



Confessions In The Dark

Whispers in the night lead to sweet surrender . . . but what will the dawn bring?

Anger. Guilt. Sorrow. They’ve strangled Cole for years-and now they’ve literally damaged him. With his knee out of commission, Cole knows the road to recovery will be nothing but long and irritating . . . until his beautiful and determined neighbor offers to help him in return for a favor. But soon Cole finds himself offering her so much more. Their unexpected passion lays Cole bare, body and soul. And leaves him wondering how he’ll walk away before he ruins her life, too.

Gruff, secretive, and coiled with tension that begs for release, Cole is too intriguing for Serena to resist. The English accent and brooding brown eyes don’t hurt, either. Their nights are beyond compare-yet the truths Cole confesses in his darkest moments reveal a heart bruised almost beyond repair. But Serena’s seen the kindness and support he shows when she needs it most. Armed with a bottomless well of patience and devotion, she’ll show Cole just how good it can be to let someone in . . .

Kate Reid’s whirlwind romance with billionaire playboy Rylan Bellamy complicated her life in ways she’d worked to avoid. She’d fallen hard for his flirtatious charm and given him the one thing no other man had: her trust. Just as Kate began to imagine a future with Rylan, everything fell apart.

Now she’s starting over in New York…but even the glittering streets of Manhattan can’t erase the memory of Rylan knocking her off her feet and sweeping her into the most erotic, unforgettable week of her life.

It’s been months, and Rylan still can’t forget Kate. Months since he bared his soul at her feet. Months since he drove away the only woman to ever make him feel. Kate changed his world and now Rylan is determined to win her back-no matter what it takes. After crossing an ocean to reach her, he makes a deal with Kate: One more week, for one more chance. Now it’s up to Rylan to show Kate all the ways they fit together . . . and prove that this player has met his perfect match.

Back in high school, Matt was Lib’s best friend, her confidant, and the object of her secret crush. When he was forced by his family to move away—suddenly and without warning—the day after taking her to the Christmas Ball, he broke her heart and shattered her ability to trust in love.


And three years later, he’s the absolute last person she expected to run into on a bus heading back to their home town for the holidays.


As the two of them reconnect, Lib finds herself just as drawn to him as ever, but her wariness forces her to keep her distance. Devastated by his failure to keep in touch over the years, she’s determined to protect her heart–almost as determined as he is to make up for lost time and to set things right.


There are lots of things Matt regrets in his life, but the biggest among them is how he left things with Lib. Running into her again after so much time seems like the perfect opportunity to find out what might have been. As the sparks between them fly, he becomes intent on winning her love. But first, he’s going to have to prove he’s worthy of her trust.

Seven Nights To Surrender is HERE!!!

Jeanette Grey Seven Nights to Surrender - an erotic romance set in ParisFive years ago, I started down the road of writing romance with the faint dream far off on the horizon that maybe, someday, I would have a book in stores. I never entirely believed it would happen.

Today, that dream comes true.

My new erotic romance, Seven Nights To Surrender, is a sexy whirlwind romance between the lost heir to a corporate fortune and an aspiring artist, and it takes place in the most romantic city in the world—Paris.

RT gave it four stars, and it received a starred review from Library Journal. New York Times best-selling author J. Kenner says, “With its sexy setting and sensual story, Jeanette Grey’s Seven Nights to Surrender sparkles!”

Have you gotten your copy? If you see it in a bookstore, I’d love to see a shot of you with it, and once you read it, I’d love to hear what you think.

Thanks so much to every single one of you who’s come on this journey with me. I’m so thrilled to finally be able to share this story with you.

She went to Paris looking for her muse. Instead, she found him.

The countdown is on until the release of my debut print novel, Seven Nights To Surrender. I’ve already introduced you to the hero of the book – rich, handsome, jaded ex-pat Rylan Bellamy. Now I’d like you to meet his match, a lovely young American travelling in Europe alone, Kate Reid.


An aspiring artist, Kate has splurged the majority of her meager savings on what she’s terrified is an ill-advised trip to Paris. Searching for a voice of her own as a painter, she strikes out in search of inspiration. Instead, she finds Rylan.

Though she’s hardly immune to the man’s suave charm and good looks, his easy flirtation puts Kate on her guard. Demons from her past make her automatically mistrustful, and Rylan seems way too good to be true. But his slow and steady seduction reels her in. He takes her to art museums and feeds her crepes by hand on a brightly lit Parisian street. He makes no effort to hide that he wants her in his bed, but with every glancing touch and stolen kiss, he promises he’ll give her a night she’ll never forget.

An erotic romance by Jeanette Grey - Seven Nights To Surrender

It’s a promise she finds hard to resist. She’s not a virgin, but her grand total of two sexual partners both left her unsatisfied. Rylan offers her the chance to experience the truly great sex she’d always imagined just wasn’t met for her. He coaxes untold pleasures from her body and makes it his own personal mission to show her that she deserves to be treated like a queen.

Despite her best intentions, she falls into his web. The passion of their bedroom activities mixes with the quiet intimacy of exploring a foreign city together, and she finds herself revealing pieces of herself she’s never shown to anyone before.

She’s known from the start that this was a fling. But with every passing night, it seems to be turning into so much more.

Who’s Tall, Dark, Handsome, Rich, AND Speaks Fluent French?

With my print debut, Seven Nights To Surrender, hitting shelves in less than two weeks (**blows into a paper bag**), I figured it’s about time I introduce you to the reason behind the entire book–a gentleman who walked into my head and refused to leave it until I came up with a story for him.


Meet Rylan Bellamy. To all appearances, Rylan’s a guy who seems to have it all. Born into wealth, he’s been groomed his whole life to take the reins of his father’s Fortune 500 company. Commanding in both the boardroom and the bedroom, he’s got thick dark hair, a wicked smile, crystal blue eyes, and a flawless French accent.

And when the story finds him, he is utterly adrift.

Following a betrayal, Rylan left his whole life behind. For the past year, he’s been cooling his heels in Paris, seducing tourists and trying to ignore the anger and the purposelessness that eat away at him. The women he takes to his bed are lured in by his good looks and his bottomless bank account, and he doesn’t let them see any part of him beyond that. He keeps everything on the surface, indulging in single nights of pleasure before sending his conquests on their way.

seven-opencollar-pleasureDeep down, though, he’s hungry for a real connection—for the chance to know and be known. Yet even when he meets a woman who seems to see past his façade, he guards his secrets jealously. Their passion is unlike any he’s experienced, and the closer she gets to glimpsing the man he truly is, the hotter and more intimate their time together becomes. At first, the anonymity was a game. But now it’s the heart of their connection. For the first time, someone is seeing past his fortune and his name. He’s stripped bare by it, and the sensation is addicting.

But there’s a ticking clock hanging over them. And as their precious seconds together slip past, he realizes he has no idea how he’s ever going to let her go.

I’ll be back soon with more to introduce you to the hero and heroine and to share more about why I fell in love with Paris in the first place.

Get In An Island State Of Mind…

My new book, When The Stars Align, features a romance between two astronomy students embarking on a summer internship in beautiful, sunny, steamy Puerto Rico. To help get you in the mood, here’s a list of my favorite places on the island, and some of the starring locations for the story.

  • Arecibo Observatory – When people think about studying the stars, they often imagine backyard telescopes and breathtaking images of far-off galaxies. But some of the most interesting work being done in the field is completed by collecting information from the distant reaches of the cosmos using invisible light in the form of radio waves. The telescope in Arecibo, PR, is a vast, metal dish set into a crater in the ground, and it’s some three football fields wide in diameter. Catch a glimpse of it in movies such as Contact, starring Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey, and the James Bond film Golden Eye.

    It’s the setting for the majority of the story, and the primary place where the characters, Adam and Jo, fall in love.

  • Ponce – This city on the south side of the island boasts gorgeous, pristine, white beaches. It was the perfect place for my hero–buff, athletic Adam–to take the guarded heroine, Jo, into the ocean for the first time and teach her to loosen up a little.
  • El Yunque – This gorgeous national park is the only tropical rainforest in the national park system, and it’s a treasure of dense jungle foliage, towering palm trees, beautiful, crystal clear pools and hidden waterfalls.
    One of the first times Jo and Adam interact outside observatory grounds is on a day trip to the rainforest. Taking advantage of the chance to swim, Jo gets herself into a situation where she needs help, and it’s the first crack in her defenses that allows Adam to see a glimpse of the vulnerability she keeps so carefully hidden from the rest of the world.
  • Vieques Island – This small island a short ferry ride off the eastern coast of Puerto Rico is home to a major military base—and what might possibly be my favorite place in the world. The unflatteringly named Mosquito Bay has a natural phenomenon known as bioluminescence. Tiny microscopic organisms in the water glow whenever they’re disturbed. Swimming fish leave trails of brilliant blue light in the water. A kick of a leg sends off showers of brilliance. Letting some of the water pour down your arm sends pinpricks of light like tiny stars flowing across your skin.

    While pollution and climate change have taken their toll, making the bay less spectacular than it was years ago, it lives in my memory as the most beautiful place I’ve ever been, and is the setting for what I think of as one of most romantic scenes in the book, as Adam and Jo discover the wonder of it together.

I can’t wait to share all the heat and passion of the Caribbean with you.

Introducing When The Stars Align’s Adam McCay

When The Stars Align is coming out in just a couple of weeks. It’s special to me for a whole host of reasons, including the fact that it’s my first full-length m/f romance, my first book with Grand Central’s Forever Yours line, and my first new adult book in over a year. To get the ball rolling with it, I’m here today to introduce you to one of my favorite heroes I’ve ever written, college junior Adam McCay.

Before I get too far, let me start by mentioning that Adam looks like this with his shirt on:

Chris Evans is the visual inspiration for the hero of my sexy new adult romance When The Stars Align

And like this without it:

Chris Evan shirtless was a major source of inspiration for my sexy new adult romance When The Stars Align

Besides his angelic face, his abs, and his shoulder-to-waist ratio, what precisely do I love so much about him?

Honestly, Adam is a delightful mess of contradictions. He’s a beefcake of a hunk who also happens to be a closet nerd, and he’s just as likely to be found working out as he is to be performing complicated calculations in his research into stellar astronomy.

He prizes loyalty above all else. He’s dedicated to his family and his friends, and he’s the type of person who will always try to keep the peace and do the right thing.

To all appearances, he’s a clean-cut all-American guy.

And the instant he lays eyes on Josephine “Jo” Kramer, with her visible tattoos, her piercings and her electric blue hair, he is utterly bewitched.

At first, the attraction is purely physical. After the end of a long-term relationship with a girl he was always better friends with than anything else, the idea of a girl with a little bite has his blood running hot. It doesn’t help matters that he and Jo butt heads immediately, and their confrontations always end up throwing sparks.

But as he gets to know this fierce, fiery girl, he gets to see the hidden parts of her, the hurts and the decency. Animal magnetism transforms into mutual respect, intense feelings of protectiveness, and ultimately, love.

His capacity for love, his patience and his selflessness are the things that end up defining him in my mind.

Also, have I mentioned his shoulder-to-waist ratio?

Chris Evans is new adult romance inspiration

He’s available for pre-order now. I can’t wait for you to read his story. By the end, I hope you’ll be as in love with him and proud of him as I am.

Praise for Jeanette Grey’s When The Stars Align:

“I couldn’t put it down! I loved every sentence! The writing is outstanding, the setting entrancing, and the characters stole my heart. Fresh, flawed and instantly lovable, you’ll root for Jo and Adam at every turn. ”
—S. C. Stephens, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“The heat of the island has nothing on the off the charts attraction that sizzles between its feisty and fiercely unique heroine and idyllic hero. The journey to being the best you is often equal parts beautiful and tragic, and Gray sets the scene perfectly. A sassy and sexy read full of heart and adventure. This romance is like a breath of fresh air.”
—Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author.

“Once I started I could. not. stop. I loved every word. Refreshing characters. Unique setting. And a plot that will have you smiling all the way through. When The Stars Align is a breath of fresh air with a heroine who breaks the mold. Jeanette delivers a sexy read filled with the wonder of discovering who you are, what you want, and how to love despite your best laid plans. This story will leave your heart full and your hands wishing for more. Absolute brilliance!”
—Chelsea Fine, author of Best Kind of Broken
