Celebrating Scarlet Chastain's Sexy New F/F Romance With Evernight Publishing

All day today we're celebrating Scarlet Chastain's brand new F/F romance release with Evernight Publishing.

BELLA KEY by Scarlet Chastain

Maddie Jacobs must be crazy. At least that’s what her mother thinks. Professionally, she’s confident and secure; personally, she’s a hot mess. Not even a marriage proposal from a man who adores her can quell her search for something more.

In need of an escape, Maddie flees to Key West’s most southern island, Bella Key, to rest and recharge at Casa Bonita. She almost gives up on weekend retreat when the Bed & Breakfast is closed for repairs until Sunny Rojas, the inn owner, extends an offer of friendship, sweet tea and a room. Still reeling from a breakup with her longtime partner, Sunny is thankful for the diversion from her own broken heart.

The arrival of a fierce storm forces the women’s emotional journey to a head and leads them into each other’s arms. But can Maddie throw her hangups to the wind and go with her heart? The magic of Bella Key teaches her that passion cannot be placed neatly into boxes labeled right and wrong, because love knows no boundaries.


Scarlet Chastain is the semi-secret pseudonym of a multi-published, best selling author of sensual erotic romance. Scarlet’s focus is female-centric sizzling stories written about women, for women.

She lives in the suburban shadows of New York City but her heart belongs to the beaches of Key West. Scarlet can usually be found in her favorite chair of her newly acquired writing cave.

If you ask her nicely, she will usually tell you her other pen name. She’s sweet that way.

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.”

  1. Good morning Scarlet and super congrats on your new release BELLA KEY. I just read the excerpt and it sounds great! Can't wait to read it!

    Please tell us all about it and I've heard it's doing really well and getting great reviews, so you must be so excited!

    What's up next for you?

    Enjoy your Cyber Launch Party and thanks so much for the giveaway! Who can't use more book money?? Have a great time and I hope BELLA KEY is a huge bestseller for you!

    1. Thank you for throwing this amazing launch party for BELLA KEY, Author Island!!

      I'm thrilled with the buzz my girls are getting! Yes, girls. BELLA KEY is a female/female erotic romance! What I love about the story is it's first and foremost a romance. It just happens to be between two women, Maddie and Sunny.

      Maddie is at a crossroads in her life and doesn't know what she wants. She takes a little down time from a business trip and travels to Key West to escape and think. Maddie ends up at Sunny's Bed and Breakfast, Casa Bonita, on Bella Key. Maddie and Sunny help each other heal in different ways.

      There's also a fun character, Jules Quigley, introduced about halfway in. I can't say much without giving away the story, but I will say Jules is based on a real romance author.

      BELLA KEY is getting fantastic reviews even after just being released last Friday! SQUEE!

      Also, I'd like to mention the book is on sale at for 25% off until tomorrow since it's a new release. Plus, 25% of all website proceeds will be donated to support Breast Cancer Awareness. So pick up BELLA KEY for just $2.24 and you'll be making a donation too. Isn't that sweet?

    2. That's awesome about the sale! And I love that Evernight is donating part of their sales to support Breast Cancer Awareness! It's a win/win - thanks for letting us know!

  2. Do you visit Key West a lot? Shared via email.

    1. I don't visit Key West enough! I do love Florida and had the opportunity to live on Sanibel Island for a couple of years. Sanibel is tamer than Key West but so beautiful.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What's your favorite part of FF fiction?

    1. Hi Sheri!

      My favorite part of FF fiction is the connection between two women. Women are intimate with each other, even outside of a sexual relationship. They can talk about anything and everything. When women click together, a relationship is formed that's unlike that of a man and a woman.

      I love to take that special connection flesh out the emotions and intimacy formed with women characters.

  4. Congrats on the new release! The post says that if we ask nicely you'll tell us your other pen name. I'm asking pretty please??

    1. Hey there, Susan!

      Sure thing! I write under Sandra Bunino. :) Scarlet is for my F/F work so readers know what they're going to get. I didn't want there to be any confusion.


  5. What made you decide to write F/F?

    I shared on Facebook:

    1. Hi Ursula!
      I love to write powerful love scenes packed with emotion. With the M/F dynamic, my heroes are always Alpha and the heroine breaks down his tough exterior to find his vulnerability.

      Women wear their emotions on their sleeves. For the most part, they are intimate, vulnerable and open with each other. I love that dynamic. It begs for a gentle and honest love scene.

  6. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and commented during the BELLA KEY launch party!

    The winner of a $10 Evernight Publishing gift certificate is Susan W.!

  7. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
    your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let
    you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
