Cover Reveal & Blurb for “Designs of Desire”

Series: Desires Entwined, Book #1

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

Length: Novel

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family’s rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he’s not worthy of anything, let alone love.

As CEO of his company, Carrington Enterprises, Seth Burns is a take-charge kind of guy, and he is instantly smitten by the artist helping with his newest project. When he witnesses James suffer a panic attack, a protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He truly believes nothing is unobtainable—including James—if he’s willing to put in the time and effort.

James is shy and confused by Seth’s interest in him as a person. With Seth’s support, can he work through his fears to finally find the true love he deserves, or will someone finally land the crushing blow he won’t survive?

I wanted to share the awesome cover Reese Dante did for me! I hope you enjoy it as well as the blurb for Designs of Desire, my first book. It is set to release July/Aug—I will update you all when I know the official release date (and with the preorder link for those of you eager to read the full story of James and Seth).

Thank you all for your support and love. Now, back to working on Desires’ Guardian (Chase’s story!).

About the author


Tempeste O’Riley grew up in the deep south and escaped her conservative, oppressive roots as soon as she could. Tempe is an out and proud omnisexual/bi-woman whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what she couldn’t – defy the hate and come out. He has been her hero ever since.

Though new to writing M/M, she has done many things in her life but writing has always drawn her back – no matter what else life has thrown her way. She counts her friends, family, and Muse as her greatest blessings in life.
