Celebrating A Sexy New Installment In Cheryl Dragon's Lucky Springs Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a sexy new menage in Cheryl Dragon's Lucky Springs Series!

TRAINING PARTY by Cheryl Dragon

Lucky Springs Series, Book Four

Deeply involved with a carton of Ben and Jerry's, Angie is caught cheating on her diet. Her sexy friend Tucker has no choice but to take action. Uncovering all her secrets, Tucker loves her curves and submissive tendencies. Ang still wants to look good for a big wedding so Tucker puts her on a strict diet of satisfying three hot men and attending some secret parties with them.

Burning calories is the last thing on her mind when Angie realizes all the fun she's been missing by being a good girl. Food is no substitute for love but after amazing sex, splitting a pint four ways is much better than eating alone.


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 and 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.

  1. LOL! Cheryl, how lucky Angie is! ;) How did you get the idea for Training Party? (What an amazing incentive to limit ice cream intake! ;)) And do you have more planned for the Lucky Springs series?

  2. Woo Hoo - congrats on the new release Cheryl - I just saw it was already a bestseller over on ARe!! You have to be thrilled!

    What a lucky lady Angie is indeed! Please tell us all about the new book and for those not familiar with your Lucky Springs Series, can you tell us more about it and how the books fit together?

    I hear on twitter & facebook that you are writing up a storm! What do you have coming up next for us?

    Enjoy your party and I hope TRAINING PARTY is your biggest seller yet!

  3. lol is right!! well in lucky springs book 4, there is a wedding. and what woman doesn't want to look good standing up in a wedding? so getting caught cheating on the diet was a great way to get the men into her lives in a far deeper way;)

    Lucky Springs ideas are such fun. They just show up and I go with them!

    And fear not!There are FOUR more Lucky Springs books planned.

    The next books comes out in August. That factory on one end of town has been expanded and a lot of hot single men are coming to town for jobs. Plus there are more jobs in the office where our heroine is working. she is actually coming home to good 'ole Lucky Springs...

    her story is up next in Quality Assurance....will those four men pass the test??

    thanks for the question!!

  4. This sounds really hot! It's on my list for my next amazon spree. That should any day now. LOL

  5. Lucky Springs is a small town in the middle of nowhere in Louisiana...but you really want to live there:)

    It started with some sex parties in private homes. You can watch or be watched and if you like to share, well you'll find others who do as well. When and where the parties are is a secret but once you're on the list, you'll get the emails. Out of these parties grew an acceptance of menage and more relationships.

    Those who know, know...those who don't remain blissfully in denial. Book one is about Cassie and her three hot neighbors. Book two is Cassie's cousin...Jessica's story (with four hot men and some business deals). Then Book Three is is super hot at the fire station with Lolly (the sister of a hero in book one) and her guys. Book four is about Ang (a friend of Cassie's) and her guys...and it also has Cassie's wedding!

    That's how the first four books link up. All Lucky Spring residents who know and trust each other.

    Yes, all the books contain m/m interaction, FYI.

    The next four books in the series (beginning with Quality Assurance in August) are the stories of four female friends who move to Lucky Springs for jobs during this recession crunch. That factory in Lucky Springs is expanding and they are hired in the office for various roles.

    Each one gets a story and four hot men of their own who work in or around the factory/office. Romance on the job is complicated enough without falling for four men! But in Lucky's just the way things work out:D

  6. Oh, what's next now?? Well May 18th I have a new menage + (I write a lot of these, can't get enough hot men in a bed...).

    It's book 2 of the Warrior's Craft Series at Changeling Press:

    4 Cowboys & A Witch. Magic, hot sex, and four cowboys...really there is no resisting that spell:)

    Cover and blurb are up here:

    As for what I'm writing right now....geez a few short things AND that next lucky springs story coming out in August!! too many ideas and not enough fingers to type with...

  7. thanks Julie!! It's NOT up on amazon sometimes takes a couple of weeks for that to get loaded.

    I announce on facebook and twitter when new releases go live on amazong and B&N so follow me somewhere and you'll get the reminder;)

  8. Did that link not work?? Darn:(

    Four Cowboys & A Witch
    Coming May 18th to Changeling Press

    FYI, these books can be read as stand coven is the connection.

  9. Happy release day. I've really enjoyed this series. Must go see about this party.

  10. thanks Donna!! it's a lot of naughty fun:) this one has some light bdsm elements in it too. can't control there characters, they are who they are....

  11. Congrats on the new release. Do you do anything special to celebrate? This book sounds great. Can't wait to read it.


  12. Congrats Cheryl! I haven't read a lot of adult books, but this looks awesome!
    My question is, Do you have any special writing rituals?

  13. thanks Joanne! to celebrate? hmm, nothing consistent with each book. sometimes i'll run over to teh culvers and get a sugar high from a concrete mixer as a treat but I don't need more ice cream...usually the rush of sharing it with others is plenty:)

  14. Hi Kymberlee---my books are pretty hot all warnings and enjoy:)

    i don't havea any big rituatls. i'm most productive in the mornings so while getting coffee/waking up/showering i get the story of the day in my head. where was i, the characters and what they want (other than each other:) and after checking the emails and twitter/FB for anything pressing....I dive in.

    I try to write 5k Monday-Friday. so it's a job but capturing the best time for creativity is a weird part of it! thanks for the question!

  15. Comgrats on the new book! I havent read any of books but from the look of this one i need to get it! Iam so glad i found out about you.I have some new books to get my hands on (LOL) Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. Cheryl, first of all, congratulations on the new release and best of luck with sales!

    I was wondering, in many of your books it's FOUR guys, is there some significance to this number?

  17. thanks Mandy!! lucky springs is great fun!! and there's plenty more menage + fun in other series and stand alones...happy shopping! lol!

  18. Congrats on your release! Sounds very good! This caught my attention. No better way for her to exercise! ;D Lucky girl! Thanks for sharing! Wishing you all the best! How did you come up with your author name?

  19. lol Rose!! Four Guys, Four Cowboys...well that's a funny story.

    Changeling Press only puts up to 3 characters on a cover (so it doesn't look too crowded) and these are menage + stories. I couldln't leave anyone out so I decided to use the title as the signal that it's menage + and the cover features the heroine.

    so no, nothing special other than there are four men. these are groups of men out there fighting paranormal evil so you need enough men to make a good fight and fuel the spells with their sexy energy...four seems to work:D

    gotta keep the witches happy!

  20. This comment has been removed by the author.

  21. hi Shadow!

    my pen name was really first name is real:) so i always answer to it at conferences!

    dragon...I always loved dragons. and unlike my real last name, it's easy to spell, pronounce, and isnt' easily mixed up or confused.

    that's one move i've never regretted! i do love my pen name!

  22. Congratulations on the book! Do you have a favorite book of yours that you've written?


  23. a favorite?? oh that's picking a favorite kid...

    Birthday Party Surprise is probably my fav because its the fantasy for your birthday and it turns into mega relationship:)

  24. WOW Cheryl, this has to be the HOTTEST way to keep to a diet, wouldn't you agree??


  25. Do you work on stories everyday or do you take days off?

  26. Congrats on your new release! Well it's a proven that you burn more calories during sex, what a great way to burn those terrible I love the premise, and your stories are just the genre to get lost for hours in your wonderful books. I love your ideas!
    Thank you for the giveaway

  27. Then I forgot my email...LOL

  29. hi leni!

    generally mon-fri i do work on something...writing or editing. weekends are when i relax or play catch up if i'm behind lol!


  30. Hi Cheryl!
    Congrats on the release, it does sound great. I actually have a couple of questions for you.
    1. Do the books need to be read in order or can they stand alone?
    2. Who was the hardest person to let know about what kind of books you write? (mother, grandmother, father, adult children, etc) Is there anyone you don't want reading your books because it would embarrass you?

    Congrats again!

    (it is a j after the _)

  31. hi June!

    You don't have to read the books in order, they can stand alone. main characters from one book may be a secondary character in another but all the info you need for that story is in there;)

    my mother and father don't need to know:) lol. it might shock them more than embarass me.

  32. Hi Cheryl,

    did you read menage before you started writing?
