Two men. Two women. Two stories. Too wild...
PUTTING ON A SHOW
Watch Me by Sasha White
Some people have coffee. Some have tea. But the only thing that really wakes Bethany Mack up in the morning is sex. Too bad marriage to Grant has settled into a sex-starved routine. That is, until she spies a hot roofer next door. Broad, sexy shoulders: check. A muscular chest you could nuzzle all day: check. And under those jeans, well, the thought just makes her weak. So she puts on a little show for him through the window, letting her inhibitions loose, and discovers a naughty new addiction. But how will her husband react when he discovers just how far a desperate housewife will go for some lov'n from him?
Sex, Lies, and Bondage Tape by Saskia Walker
Fitness instructor Kelly Burton is a woman on a mission, and this time it's sneaking backstage at a rock concert to get super star Clayton Warren's autograph for her friend. What she doesn't factor in is becoming privy to a big media secret, nor being captured by a sexy security guy who sends her pulse racing.
Backstage security man Tommy Samson's speciality is sending rogue groupies on their way with a playful spank and a threat, but this woman is responding to his behaviour in an entirely different way and very soon they're locked in hands-on-combat of an intimate kind, kicking off a sequence of crazy sex games back and forth across London.
When Kelly wants to track Tommy down, she has to resort to being a 'groupie' all over again, shanghaiing Clayton Warren and doing a deal over his big media secret to get hold of Tommy's contact details. Kelly is a stubborn, independent woman who plays the men at their own games, but it only makes Tommy want more, and what Tommy wants...Tommy goes after.
I live and work in the north of England, close to the beautiful Yorkshire moors. Here in the windswept landscape made famous by the Bronte sisters, I write fiction across several genres: fantasy, erotic romance and erotica. British by birth, I have traveled extensively and I believe that visiting exotic countries contributed greatly to my desire to write, that and an extremely vivid and active imagination!
I first started writing a rather madcap historical romance when I was twelve years old. The heroine was called Miranda and she was much more like Modesty Blaise than a blushing debutante. At the time I was consuming a literary diet as diverse as Barbara Cartland and Ian Fleming, and reading a book a day. What a combination! But that might begin to explain the rather reckless, adventurous heroines that I write about these days...
I have an academic background, with a BA in Art History and a Masters degree in Literature and the visual arts. Creative writing has become more important as time has passed, drawing me away from all manner of diverse careers. I have worked as a gallery assistant, an academic librarian, a university administrator, a liaison officer for overseas students studying in the UK, an online tutor for Learn Direct and I coordinated a voluntary befriending scheme for children in care. I began writing in earnest in '96 and was published in the small press under the guidance of the leading British fantasy writer, Storm Constantine. From there I began to write for Virgin publishing's Black Lace imprint and now, several publications later, I spend most of my writing time on longer projects, punctuated with the occasional short story.
My real life hero, Mark, supports my work through all its ups and downs, and runs the tech side of my website. Together with the big black cat who watches over while I write, Mark somehow manages to keep me sane and grounded when fiction threatens to take over!
