When he wins a sexy bet, billionaire Linc Blair can’t wait to get Lauren Neill naked. He’s never gone for her type in the past, and he’s pretty certain it has more to do with her buttoned-up hotness than the nagging sense that something is missing from his life. But when he gets a glimpse of the vulnerable woman beneath the conservative, yet oh-so-sexy clothes, it’s a game changer.
Lauren can’t believe she’s spending a few days with one of sexiest, and most annoying men she’s ever met. But she can’t deny the chemistry between them, and for once in her life she’s letting down her guard so she can explore a different side of herself. The side only Linc brings out in her.
Taking it slow, he unleashes her sexuality and it quickly occurs to him that what started out as a bet for him has become something more. With their weekend nearly over, and her ex showing interest in this new confident version of Lauren, Linc will have to risk it all if he wants to win the game of love.
“If my team scores before overtime, I win, and you’re mine for the weekend.”
His for the weekend?
Her mind raced with hot, sexy images, like him holding her against the wall while he did depraved, corrupt things to her body. She swallowed. How tempting.
“And if I win?” she asked, sounding far more winded than she would have liked.
“Then I’m yours for the weekend. You can use me any way you want.”
“I do have a toilet that needs to be cleaned.”
He leaned into her and flashed her a feral, merciless smile as his gaze settled on her mouth. “Sure, but I’d rather fuck,” he said, his voice a devious hush orchestrated to fluster her.
Mission accomplished. His dirty words, ones that should have offended, spurred a need deep between her legs, and it was all she could do not to hand herself over to him, to let him own every inch of her for the weekend.
He wanted to fuck her? Seriously? She had to be hallucinating. This couldn’t be happening. Could it?
Her looked her dead in the eyes. “Deal?”
She bit her lip before she hissed yes, please.
The clock was ticking down, and the only way she could lose was if the Rays suddenly scored, and no way in hell was that going to happen this late in the game.
She nodded. “Fine. You’re on.”
I’ve always been an avid reader and was one of those teens who snuck into their mother’s room to grab one of her Harlequin books, which I read late at night under the covers. I went off to university and obtained a Business degree, accounting and economics, shiver…but shortly in to my career I knew it wasn’t for me. My husband was posted up north, population 800—no roads in or out of the town, everything came by plane. I found myself with a new freedom and numerous quiet hours in the day. With hours to fill, and a crazy cast of 800 to draw on, I pulled out a pen and paper, and was inspired to start writing.
2. What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
I love to read, of course, and spend time with my family and friends. When I’m on a deadline I don’t have a lot of time to spend on meals, but in between books I love to try new recipes. In the evening my hubby and I like to snuggle in and watch a movie, and on weekends we love getting out with friends.
3. What inspired you to write Learning Curves?
I was beyond thrilled when my editor called and asked me to be a part of the launch. She said I tend to write a hot for the category lines and would have more freedom to really amp it up in Scorched. YAY! When I sat down to come up with an idea, I thought I could have a little more fun with a girl who wasn’t experienced and a guy who was showing her the ropes—in more ways than one!
4. What’s up next for you?
Coming out June 6, is Engaging the Bachelor, Entangled Brazen. This is the first book in a medical series that I’m writing with three other authors. If you loved Grey’s Anatomy and Dr. McDreamy this one is for you. Beginning July, my Hands On serial for Scorched begins releasing. (Hands On, Body Contact, Full Exposure) I’m also currently working on a proposal for Entangled publishing’s Indulgence Line and another round of stories for Scorched.
