Sophie Jackson’s award-winning Pound of Flesh novels reignite “that feeling of sneaking risqué books under the bedcovers with a flashlight” (RT Book Reviews)! Join her millions of online fans with this irresistible enovella that takes the intimate relationship between a gutsy prison tutor and her sexy bad-boy student to the ultimate level.
When tutor Kat Lane met her brooding, dangerously tempting student Wesley Carter behind bars, she never dreamed of the day she would be excitedly planning for their wedding. It won’t be long before they’re man and wife, and neither Kat nor Carter can wait. But as they settle into the joyful haze of nearly-newlywed bliss, all their friends seem to be one step ahead. Everywhere they turn, couples are becoming parents, and the longing in Kat’s eyes worries Carter. What if she gets baby fever…and he’s not so sure? Carter’s childhood was rough, and his father was no example for how to be an upstanding man—or a good parent. Can Carter create a happy, safe, supportive home for his future children with Kat—the life he never had growing up? He had better figure it out soon…because Kat just told him she needs to take a pregnancy test.
Fate and Forever
A few months ago, I finally read A Pound of Flesh and really enjoyed it! So, when I got the chance to read the novella Fate and Forever, you know I jumped at it!
In this book, you get a lot of Kat and Carter, which is awesome. You also get to see Max and his lady love and you get a little insight into Riley (who will get his book next!). So, the beginning chapters are used to peek at Max and get to know Riley.
Once the story really gets going, you jump right into the angst. Kat thinks she could be pregnant and Carter FREAKS OUT. His behavior is totally douche-y. The rest of the novella explores Carter’s fear of fatherhood and Kat’s frustration with her new husband. I love Kat and Carter and it was gut wrenching to see them deal with such a real issue. This is a quick, 45 minute read, but it packs an emotional punch for sure!

By day I’m a high school English teacher and by night I write stories about bad boys and the women they love.
I always loved reading. As a kid, my mum would take me to the local bookshop every week to buy a new book. I even created my own library on my bookshelf in my bedroom at the age of five! When I started school, I found that I loved writing too.
As I got older, I was never really inspired by anything to kick-start my writing. I had plenty of ideas, which I noted down, but I never actually sat down and wrote anything and always used lack of time as an excuse.
That all changed when three of my pupils dropped a copy of Twilight onto my desk at school. They begged me to read it, which I did, from cover to cover in a day. I devoured the other three books and then read them all over again. I was hooked. When I finished reading them the second time, I knew I needed more. I wanted to learn more about the characters, to see them in different situations and following different storylines. That’s when I happened upon FanFiction.net.
The talent in the fanfiction world is truly incredible, and I spent weeks falling down the ‘Twifiction’ rabbit hole, while falling more in love with the idea of writing my own. I was inspired.
I’m a hopeless romantic and a sucker for a love story, which is what I decided to write. A Pound of Flesh is the result.
