Stepbrother romance..?

Australian cover
Step sibling romance\erotic romance is experiencing huge popularity right now. Personally, I think it was always popular it's just that it's being more accepted as a subgenre (its coming out of the closet..? ;o) and we're seeing more covers with blatant step titles and blurbs with specific reference to the step sibling relationship.

I've always thought it a very sexy setup, as a young teenager or even older person you're pushed together with someone who you are not related to, but you get to spend an awful lot of time around and may be sexually attracted to or even fall in love with. But of course your parents won't want it to happen. Sexy, forbidden, lots of potential for conflict! :)

Last year my novel The Burlington Manor Affair was published and this one is a step brother/step sister erotic romance with a mystery sub plot. I think it went out just before the tide turned and the publisher didn't put any mention of step siblings in the book blurb or on the cover. That's why I'm posting about it now -- in case any of the readers who love this subgenre are interested, this novel is still available in e-book at all the usual retailers, although its cheaper if you buy from either M&B in the UK or Harlequin direct in the US. I posted below the details and some of the covers that appear for this book in different countries. If you pick Rex and Carmen's story, I hope you enjoy it!
