I’m so sorry I didn’t make the rounds last week. I was away handling some family issues but now I am back and I promise to be better this week. Without further delay, here are 8 lines from Seducing Steve:
“Tell me more about how crappy old Adam was in bed.”
His chuckle came warm, breathy, and damp on her skin, evoking images of hot, sultry nights, cloyingly sweet iced tea, and lazily whirling fans. She was picturing herself clad only in a slip a la Elizabeth Taylor, when his thick, honey voice interrupted the fantasy.
“I like having my ego stroked almost as much as I like having everything else stroked. Did he fold his underwear?”
She her hands through his thick, fiery hair. “Your ego doesn’t need stroking.”
Erotic romance novelist Sara Wright yearns for passion that leaps from the page. After a marriage that proved to be more fizzle than sizzle, Sara’s writing reflects her growing frustration and also her secret passion for her best friend and muse, Steve Larson.
Steve Larson is anything but your typical romance hero. A redheaded computer nerd with a slow, southern drawl, Steve is neither a cattle baron nor a titan of industry. The one thing he does have going for him is that he has loved Sara from the moment he met her.
When she confesses that he has long served as her inspiration, Steve leaps at the chance to take things to the next level. Determined to be the man to make her fantasies come true, he takes a page from Sara’s own books and plots a passion so intense it threatens to consume them and the friendship they both cherish.
When friends turn into lovers, love can get lost in the shuffle. Fact becomes tightly cocooned in fiction as both Sara and Steve learn to balance their desires with the needs of their hearts.
