Librarian Kinley Foster wants to write erotic romance—the steamy, sexy, curl-your-toes kind of stuff. The problem? She desperately needs a little erotic inspiration. And at a romance convention in Vegas, she finds it...or rather him. The sizzlingly sexy guy who refused Kinley—and her virginity—when she was sixteen.
Now it's time for a little payback.
Literary agent Ian Thompson is a professional. Mentoring an aspiring author is one thing. Giving her a thorough and thoroughly satisfying sexy education is quite another. Especially when she's as stunning and deliciously curvaceous as Kinley. Yet Ian can't help himself when Kinley makes him a wager he can't resist. A wager that will tempt Ian to cross every professional—and every sensual—boundary in the book...
- What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
I’m a middle school counselor, so I work during the days. And I’m training to run a ½ marathon with my daughter, so I try to run at least four nights a week with her. And that accounts for about all of my free time when I’m not writing.
In a perfect world, I’d have time to knit, read, and get pedicures. And/or drink wine, eat chocolate, and listen to the ocean waves crash against white sand beaches while a cabana boy is fanning me.
2. What inspired you to write The Seduction of Kinley Foster?
I was sitting in my office one day and a teacher walked in – she stood in my doorway a minute, and I waited for her to say something. She didn’t. Instead, she turned around and left. A few minutes later, she came back with another teacher. That teacher said, “Connie wants to invite you to a sex toy party, but she’s afraid you’ll be offended.” After I got done laughing – they know so little about my other side – I said yes. While sitting in that sex toy party, the idea came to me for The Seduction of Kinley Foster. If you read my acknowledgements, you’ll see where I thanked Connie for the idea for this book.
3. How did you decide which genre you wanted to write?
I write romance because that’s what I like to read.
I write romantic comedy because that is what lends itself best to my voice.
I like to have fun when I write by placing my characters into zany situations and then watch them try to fumble their way out of them. Sometimes I get a little to zany and my editor has to pull me back in – but that’s part of the fun of it also – to see how far my editor will let me go.
If you read The Seduction of Kinley Foster, and I hope you will, send me an email afterward and ask me what my original plan was to have happen during the Karaoke scene. I’ll dish with you about the scene my editor said was too zany.
4. What’s up next for you?
I’m currently working on a manuscript that is titled: The Distraction of Adeline Rigby. In it, you’ll see how Kinley’s big brother finds love.
