Libby Waterford - Passionate History

Please welcome fellow Decadent Publishing author Libby Waterford!

Thanks for stopping to chat! Please tell us a bit about your latest release, or what's coming up.

Thanks for having me, Leigh! Passionate History is an erotic novella that takes places at the reunion/commencement weekend at a small liberal arts college in New England. Aidan and Bree shared one hot night together on the eve of Bree’s college graduation. Now she’s back for her five-year reunion, but her former professor/lover isn’t exactly happy to see her.

What is a day in your writing life like? Do you have a set schedule?

I would love to have a set schedule, but I’m mostly at the whim of my two-year-old. I write when he’s napping and any other times I can sneak in.

Do you consider yourself a plotter or a pantser? Or maybe both?

I definitely consider myself a pantser. For me, the magic of the story is finding out what happens as I write. I’ve grown to love self-editing, so that’s when the plot wrinkles get ironed out.

Do you prefer to write one specific genre, or are you a bit all over the map? What is your favorite genre to write and why?

I’m a contemporary romance author through and through. I love to read historicals and some paranormals, but I couldn’t write them to save my life. Where my variation comes in is heat level. I’ve written a variety, and I always strive to make sure the sex matches the needs of the story.

Are you published primarily in print or eBook, or both equally? Which format do you prefer and why?

I’m primarily published in ebook format. I read both, but I find ebook to be the most flexible format as a reader.

What do you have planned writing wise for the rest of the year?

I have two more novellas set at the same reunion/commencement weekend that Passionate History takes place at and I’m hoping to get them in reader’s hands by the end of the year!

Do you have any social media profiles/pages where readers can follow you?

I’m most active on Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads. Please come connect with me!






Do you have a blog/Yahoo group for readers to stay updated on your works?

I’ve got a blog and a newsletter: The blog gets the best photos and first news flashes.

What was the last book that you read? What did you think?

I just read Hard Glamour, a new adult novel by Maggie Marr, about an up and coming Hollywood action star and his new script reader, the proverbial girl from Kansas. It was hot and a great start to the series.

Most f***able movie star of the 1930s-50s? Why?

This is a tough one to narrow down. I’m going with Gregory Peck. Tall, dark, handsome, and that incredibly sexy voice!


Passionate History
by Libby Waterford

A contemporary erotic romance novella

On the eve of her college graduation, Bree Ross seduces her favorite art history professor. She doesn’t expect buttoned-up Professor Worthy to give her the best sex of her life, or anticipate that leaving him to start her post-college life would be so difficult. Their unforgettable encounter haunts her, and five years later, she finds herself back on campus for her college reunion—with a specific goal in mind. How hard could it be to convince her ex-professor to write her a letter of recommendation for graduate school?

Straight-laced Professor Aidan Worthy has adhered to his carefully-aligned morals his entire teaching career…until Bree Ross walks into his classroom. Guilt plagues him for his one transgression because that one amazing night has been seared onto his brain. When she waltzes back into his life after five years of silence, he’s not thrilled. But he can’t deny the illicit spark they once shared has not disappeared, and he worries he won’t be able to resist temptation a second time.

Over the course of the tumultuous reunion and commencement weekend at Weston University, rain, relatives, and rental cars force the two to confront their sizzling desire and burgeoning feelings. Is their passionate history enough to keep them together, or will it drive them apart?

Enjoy the following excerpt for Passionate History:

“Professor—Aidan,” she said, sounding embarrassed.
Good. “What are you doing?”
“I’m trying to find my rental car. I think I parked it somewhere around here, and I can’t exactly remember what it looks like.”
“Can’t you click the remote key? If it’s nearby the lights will go off when you unlock it.” There, his brain had produced a sensible suggestion, even as it occupied itself with cataloguing her scent, the tired smudges under her eyes, and the curve of her hips outlined by a flowy skirt.
“I would, except the only car left on the lot was some micro-budget sedan. I can’t remember the model.” She held her key out to him. “No remote entry.”
“Can you call the rental car company?”
“I tried. They’re closed.”
Aidan stood in the street, staring at her. Bree Ross. Former student. Former lover. It was unbelievably frustrating how much he still desired her. But perhaps this was the universe telling him he had a second chance to be a gentleman.
“Well, you can’t go around looking in every car on campus. You’ll get arrested. Come on, I can give you a ride.”
“Oh, no, thanks. I can walk.”
“It’s pitch black and about to rain. I’m not letting you walk anywhere alone tonight.”
“I can go to the green, to the dance. I can catch a ride with a friend.”
“Then I’ll walk you to the dance.”
“That’s all right—”
“Bree.” His voice was a warning. “Don’t be an idiot. Let me help you.”
