After years apart Dana and Nicholas meet at their class reunion, each hoping the other will feel more than friendship. Their desire ignites a frenzy of passion, but their horrible ex-classmates keep getting in the way.
When the class beauty queen makes a play for Nicholas, Dana has had enough. No longer is she the shy, awkward teen she used to be...and she's determined to show Nicholas just how much she's grown up.
He closed the door behind him and when he turned back, Dana was right there watching him, a half-smile on her lips, her blonde hair tumbling about her face.
Nicholas whispered her name as he stepped toward her and took her in his arms and she wrapped hers around him. As they kissed he savored her cool, soft, lips yielding against his own.
Dana is here in my arms at last, he thought. I'm kissing Dana! The thought nearly blew his mind before he gave himself up to pure sensation. He ran his hands up and down the voluptuous shape of her, loving the gentle arch of her back, the swell of her hips, the curve of her small waist. He caressed her tantalizing, firm, lush bottom. He pulled her tightly against himself, reveling in the feeling of her breasts against his chest, her belly against his hard cock. And always that glorious green-grass scent of hers.
"Dana," he said breathlessly. "Dana."
He heard her sigh. She lifted her hands to his face, her fingers stroking and caressing. He rolled his head from side to side, intoxicated by the feel of her gentle touch.
When she raked her fingers through his hair, he brought his hands up and did the same through her blonde curls. Suddenly her touch grew urgent. She pulled his hair, dragging his mouth to her own, bringing him closer, closer. He grasped the back of her head and pulled it toward himself, crushing her lips against his own. Their kiss was savage. His need for her, the flame alight in his belly since they had touched on the way to the hotel, flared wildly. The fiery heat rose to his heart, consuming any uncertainty, any inhibition.
He groaned, overcome by his own unrestrained need for her, for Dana. All of Dana. He had waited so long, he had hoped and dreamed so much, and now she was here—a lovely woman whose curves made him crazy with want. She was beautiful, yet she was still Dana. And she was here, in his arms, warm, responsive, and overwhelmingly—almost unbearably—desirable. He ran his hands over her body, pitiless now in his raw need.
1. How did you start writing erotic romance?
I was working on a mystery and felt I needed practice writing sex scenes and somehow…
2. Plotter or pantster?
I’m totally a pantser. I once tried plotting a book first and then writing it, it was a miserable experience.
3. What are three things you have on your writing desk?
I don’t write on my desk—I mostly write on my lap—in bed or on the couch. I do have a desk and it’s usually heaped with papers I don’t want to deal with.
4. Favorite food?
Marzipan. I also adore chocolate—who doesn’t? But chocolate doesn’t love me back, I’m allergic to it.
5. Tell us a little about your new release. What character in the book really spoke to you?
If most of your classmates had been horrible people, but you went to a class reunion because there was one wonderful person you wanted to see…that’s the situation of this short story.
I liked Nicholas because he survived abuse from his horrible classmates and yet went on to become rich and famous, but never put any importance on having achieved that.
6. I write because ____.
I like to tell stories. I was a fashion photographer for a good many years and that’s what I did on every shoot—made a story out of the models and the clothes. So now I make the stories with my laptop.
7. What is your favorite type of character to write about?
I have a fondness for characters who give up fame and fortune for love.
8. What is the sexiest scene you ever wrote?
I can tell you who the sexiest character I’ve created is, at least for me. He’s the Gypsy, Tem Lovell, in The Gypsy and the Widow. He’s a gorgeous widower who adores his children and is happy with his life. He is unfailingly kind to the little boy of an English gentlewoman who falls in love with him. I would too. I am a total sucker for men who love children.
9. What advice would you give new authors in the erotica/romance field?
10. What is next on your writerly horizon?
I just put out three little erotica stories: the Kink, Inc. series. Short enough to be perfect bedtime reads. So far there is Mr. A, Mr. B and Mr. C. 99 cents each. If people like them, I’ll be writing Mr. D next
