TWO WEEK SEDUCTION – My older brother’s best friend…in real life and fantasy

by Kathy Lyons

fireflydocI have wanted to write a brother’s best friend story forever. You know the type. Little sister has grown up idolizing her older brother’s best friend, but protective big brother doesn’t think anyone’s good enough for little sis. Then one day, the best friend proves in some amazing way that he is worthy of her love. True love that began at age 11.

My friend who has a brother laughs at this idea. First off she says, here is Kathy’s idea of a big brother. Look at Dr. Simon Tam (played by Sean Maher) from Firefly (and Serenity) who gave up everything to save his sister from evil baddies.

sethrogenBut according to my friend, most big brothers look act like this. Here’s Seth Rogen before he slimmed down. That’s okay, I answered because the Green Hornet’s best friend is Kato, an awesome ninja engineer guy who rescues people. Look how hot Jay Chou is! To which she said, ninja assassins with incredible engineering skills do not hang out with my brother. This I have to acknowledge as true. I’ve met her brother’s friends.

But that’s not important. It’s about the love story if falling in love as a kid and those feelings still being strong and true as an adult. At this point my JayChoufriend pointed out my true loves at that age. Let’s face it… Shaun Cassidy is not the teen heartthrob I remember. On the other hand, Johnny Depp didn’t turn out so bad. Here’s my friend Jennifer picking Johnny over Fabio.

So what does all this mean? Not much. Just that I am going to pretend I have a fabulous older brother, and his best friend is even better. That true love can last and some lucky people meet their soul mate very young. So there! And jenniferjohnnysince I often write my fantasies out, check out my new book, Two Week Seduction by Kathy Lyons. There’s a lot of funny stuff, wicked banter, and really hot sex!



She’s going to break all of his rules…

TBD_500Tech Sergeant John O’Donnell was never fond of his hometown. Too many reminders of poverty, his rocky family life, and the girl he was never allowed to have. Now he has exactly two weeks to sort out his mother’s finances before he heads back overseas. Two weeks that he’s determined to spend as far from his best friend’s little sister as possible.

Alea Heling has a naughty streak a mile wide. Sweet and simple? Boring. She’s been craving a bad boy like John since their wild days together in high school, and this time, she’s not taking no for an answer. But with every panty-meltingly hot encounter, Alea forgets one hard, cold reality—this soldier won’t let a fortnight turn into forever…and forever might be exactly what they both need.
