Exposing Ellen: Skylar Kade

In my newest release, Exposing Ellen, the characters are set up on a 1Night Stand by the mystical Madame Eve (the whole 1Night Stand series is connected through her). By definition, a tryst like this isn’t supposed to last beyond morning, but my characters consistently ignore me and break the rules. Ellen, a recent divorcee, had never gotten her hands on the metaphorical 1Night Stand rulebook, and Aimee…well, Aimee’s a troublemaker who never met a rule she didn’t enjoy breaking. Luckily for both of them, no proper protocol was observed during their night together! We’ve talked, and they’ve advised me to share their top five rules to break during a 1Night Stand.

1.        Don’t meet at a luxurious, romantic hotel.
2.        Kissing is for chumps. Feel free to ignore her lush, pink lips.
3.        Definitely don’t share any personal details. You’re just there for the sex!
4.        Be selfish. Focus on your own pleasure, especially since you’re never seeing your lover again.
5.       Never ever have breakfast together the next morning. Your date certainly won’t be more appealing in daylight.
Aimee, in all her infinite wisdom, told me “The only thing you can do wrong is not be honest.” Now that’s a rule they can both get behind.

Ellen Porter is a stranger to the single life--as much a stranger as she is to facing her same-sex desires. The recent divorcee, desperate to prove that her attraction to women is just a phase, enlists the help of Madame Eve for one night of “getting it out of her system.”
Aimee Tran has had enough of the Los Angeles bar-hopping scene. In pursuit of a genuine romantic connection, she discovers Madame Eve and decides that maybe, just maybe, a one-night stand will tide her over until she finds The One.
Neither woman expects lust to burn down their preconceived notions—or to crave more than one desperate tryst.

“I....” She shook her head, terrified of the eagerness building inside her. “I have no idea what I’m doing,” she eventually whispered. “I’m sorry. Contacting 1NightStand was a bad idea, not fair to you at all.” Paolo might have been right. Her broken marriage was her fault.
She moved out of the balcony doorway but gentle fingers settled on her shoulders. “Not so fast, hon.” Aimee’s voice pitched low. “It’s not like I know what I’m doing either. I’ve never called up Madame Eve before.”
Ellen stared out over the ocean, where her date’s beauty didn’t distract her and she didn’t have to see the condemnation in Aimee’s eyes. “It’s more than being new to a dating service.” She paused and swallowed around her embarrassment. Neither in her mother’s house nor her husband’s had she been encouraged to talk about intimate issues. She hadn’t even heard certain anatomical euphemisms spoken out loud until her husband’s mistress ended up in their bed. Still, she forged on—Aimee deserved an explanation. “I’ve only been with a woman once, kind of. You obviously know what you’re doing and it’s not fair to you to be stuck for a night with someone who—”
Aimee spun her around, pulled her close, and twisted her fingers through Ellen’s hair. “Am I imagining your arousal?”
Oh, Lord. Her lips parted. The other woman stood so near. Her tongue flicked across Ellen’s lips and she bit off a moan. “I—”
Aimee pressed closer until their breasts squished together. One of her legs slid between Ellen’s. “Am I imagining your little gasps of pleasure? Of desire?” She bit Ellen’s earlobe. “If I am, tell me to leave. Because, honey, right now your inexperience is turning me on.”

Skylar Kade, self-avowed hedonist and princess extraordinaire, started her writing career after throwing aside yet another romance she could not bring herself to finish. The run-on sentences! The purple prose! Oh, the horror of it was just too much. So she sat down to write her own tale. Her favorite part about writing is the extensive research.
She currently resides in sunny southern California, alternately cursing the polluted air and adoring the weather. Skylar spends her time asking the cabana boys to bring her more mimosas and feed her strawberries while she dreams up her next naughty adventure.
She blogs at the SkylarVerse and with the Nine Naughty Novelists.
