This week’s selection comes from the next installment in the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series – Seducing Mr. September.

Seducing Mr. September_Maggie Wells


“I couldn’t wait any longer. I’m hoping you can help me with this terrible itch.”

“Please tell me it’s not the kind that needs ointment.”

Her fingers tightened in his hair. “I need a dose of you. Twice.” She caught his bottom lip between hers and bit gently. “Daily.”

Seducing Mr. September

The Costa Nostra has nothing on the St. Blaise regional Medical Center Fundraising Committee when it comes to shaking people down for money. That’s the only explanation Pharmacist Mike Weber has for stripping down to nothing but a lab coat and a smile for a fundraising calendar.

Still, nothing could prepare him for frontal assault of Karen Horton. Cool as the most confident Don, she strolls into his store, grabs a jumbo box of condoms, and makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

Every night Mike Weber jogs past her house, shirtless, gorgeous, and absolutely oblivious. After years of watching life pass her by, Karen is ready to go for the gusto. Unfortunately, the gusto she wants is six-foot-five inches of shy guy.

But Karen is tired of waiting for the things she wants to come to her, so she launches a bold campaign guaranteed to make St. Blaise’s man of mystery take notice.

Check out all of the Hot Nights in St. Blaise stories!

    I have an awful itch too. The doctor prescribed a dose of your writing 5 times daily. 😉 Fabulous, as always!

    “I need a dose of you. Twice.” Now that’s a good way of confessing love for someone. Love that imagery! Great 8!

      Thanks, Veronica. Karen is known to employ a full-frontal attack. 😉

    Wow…I’ll take one pharmacist please! LOL! Please make the therapy last a long, long time…make sure the prescription says that…in big, bold letters.
