Can she overcome her consuming desire for him? Can he make her comfortable with the other C-word…commitment?
Marley Mason is dreading the arrival of the new business consultant. After all, this man will most likely outsource her job to China. The last thing she would expect is a case of mistaken identity, leading to false accusations of kidnapping when she attempts to pick up the wrong man at the airport, or worse…that she would have such a visceral reaction to the right man.
Rick Randy is super sexy, scandalously flirty, and perfect masturbation material, but a relationship is out of the question. Rick is contracted on a temporary basis to fix Marley’s ailing company, and then pull out, although as he expresses to Marley, pulling out is difficult for him, in more ways than one! Marley’s feelings range from utter confusion to intense contemplation as Rick charms his way into her life. All of those C-words Marley can control, but it’s the other C-word she fears—commitment.
His grin widened. “And where exactly would you like me to tickle you with my face, Marley?”
“Stop it, you’re tempting me, and we promised,” I warned.
He held up his hands in defeat, but the smirk remained. “Sorry, just one question. Will the parts I’m tickling be shaved or unshaved?”
I crossed my arms, tapping my feet. “Which would you prefer?”
He leant back in his chair, placing his hands behind his head. “It’s completely optional, but my preference is smooth.”
“Why is that, Marley?”
“I am smooth.”
His eyes took on a new intensity, causing me to feel somewhat victorious in this exchange. I knew he was painting a mental picture in his head. He bit his lower lip, and his hands actually shook when he pointed to me. “Get the hell out of my office. Don’t come in here unless you need something. Got it?”
I slammed the door on my way out.
This is my debut novel, and I’m thrilled to share it with you. I describe myself as a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. By day, I don a magic cape, calculator (sometimes an abacus), and an assortment of gel pens for my work in the world of finance. But by night, I sit by the warm glow of my computer monitor, and think of stories that will warm the heart, and cheer the soul.
There is nothing better than the intimate journey and ultimate satisfaction that only a swoon-worthy romance can provide, especially if there are a few laughs along the way. Although writing is my passion, I am a reader first and enjoy nothing more than curling up with a good book and some tasty Italian (the food, of course!). I hope you will enjoy my work and please drop me a line. I’d love to hear from you.
