Celebrating Desiree Holt's 100th Release!!

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating award-winning and bestselling author Desiree Holt's super impressive 100th Release!!! 

Desiree has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!). She spent several years in the music business representing every kind of artist from country singer to heavy metal rock bands. For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her.

She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses. Romance Junkies said of her work: "Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last."


DOWNSTROKE by Desiree Holt

It's been twenty years since security specialist Charley Roper and country star Dallas Creed had their bitter parting. Now a killer has brought them together again, but neither is ready for a reunion - despite signs that their explosive chemistry hasn't waned with time. She can't forget the feel of his hands on her body. He can't forget the hot touch of her mouth. When they finally tumble into bed, the sex is just as good as they remember, hot enough to singe the sheets. But is it enough?

Thrown together during an exhausting, frenzied concert tour, with a killer nipping at their heels, Dallas and Charley find themselves on a hot, suspenseful, erotic roller coaster ride. Can he convince her to trust her heart to him one more time, to reach out for a richer, deeper, more mature love?

More importantly - can Charley keep Dallas alive long enough for either of them to enjoy a second chance?

  3. This looks like another winner to me. I love a story line that is unexpected. Often the male is written as the protector. How was it different writing a story where the female is the protector. Or was it different at all.

    Happy 100th!

  4. Wow 100 titles and still more to come...that is an achievement in itself.

    I notice you write stories on paranormal, Cowboys(my favorite theme)and even contempory, have you ever thought about a historical or do you even like that genre?

    I have to say i have read some of your work that i enjoyed but 100 is alot so there are some many titles i still need to read...I really enjoyed the Bargain

    Respectfully a fan

  15. Hey booklover,
    Yes, I work hard at it because I don't want my readers to think I'm just phoning it i. But fortunately my brain never stops working! LOL!

  16. Hi Desiree,

    Happy Release Day!! Already have Downstroke on my weekend tbb list. Great job on the trailer,btw, I love Syneca's covers.

    I know you are at RT this week, what was the highlight of the day for you?

  17. CONGRATULATIONS on reaching 100. That is astounding. Here's to the next 100.

  18. Congratulations Desiree on your 100th release!! Keep em coming and I'll keep on reading them. I love that you keep coming up with new stories to tell. Thanks for hours of escape.

  19. Congratulations on your new release. Your books sound like some great reads.

  20. Hi all! Specially big wave to Cathy. Just finished Club RT and the ebook signing fair.Remember, one of you will be a winner tonight. And I hope all of you will buy #100, Downstroke.

  21. Thanks for your reads! Did you know you wanted to do 100 when you wrote your first?

  22. Two things jumped out at me when I read the blurb and watched the trailer. First, why did you decide to make the heroine the FBI agent? That is unusual. Usually the heroine would have been the musician. Second, the elapsed time before they reunite is 20 years. That makes them "older" as compared to many romance couples. Was that a conscience decision? It looks like a great story. Please enter me in the contest.


  23. Congrats on 100 books! Does Dallas' brother have a book coming up as well?

  24. Thanks to everyone for coming to my launch party today. Watch for the announcement if the winner and don't forget to get your copy of Downstroke. And thanks to Author Island for hosting this fab party.

  25. Hi Desiree!

    Congratulations on the release of your 100th book. What an amazing accomplishment! Hope to see many more in the future. :)
