It wouldn't be Foreplay Monday without a little bit of teasing to build the anticipation. C.R. was nice enough to leave us a sneak peek into her book. Read on, but beware this is only for the grown and smexy!
Tell us a little bit about Sunset Temptations. What was your inspiration?
C.R.: A couple of years ago I went to a convention and met the lovely ladies of Decadent Publishing. While a group of us were sitting around and talking, information about Decadent’s 1NightStand line of books came up. The concept sounded interesting, and I told them I’d send in a story. I had already started on a book that I thought I’d target to a different publisher and their line, but I re-purposed it for the 1NS series. Thankfully, the first story, ‘Sunset Desires’ was accepted and from there followed ‘Sunset Seduction,’ the release I’m touting today: ‘Sunset Temptations’ and the fourth book ‘Sunset Heat’ is in the editing queue. The ‘Sunset’ series follows four female relatives on their dating adventures. I like sunsets. I live in the area my stories are set in. And after a trip up on the mountain, the storyline came to me.
Can you give us a little taste of how your heroes and heroine would go about foreplay?
C.R.: Here’s a short excerpt from when Ivy meets Robert. It’s not sexual foreplay, but the start of the drumroll of pleasure they’re to share later in the story…
She couldn’t quite place his accent. British? Kind of. Eastern European? Sort of that, too. Wherever he hailed from that gave him the deliciously sinful quality to his speech didn’t matter. She could listen to him talk forever.
She accepted his gesture. Her skin tingled from his touch. He tugged her toward him and placed a kiss on each cheek. Her knees shook and almost buckled. Ah, hell. He’d turned her body into a red-hot wire.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, too, Mr. Bourbon,” she managed after several awkward moments.
The corner of his lips turned up, and a twinkle lit his eyes.
If your characters could describe the one thing they find the sexiest about each other what would it be?
C.R.: Ivy thinks Robert’s voice is sexy. Kiran likes Robert’s commanding manner. Robert likes Kiran’s fun-loving attitude about life and Ivy’s adventurous spirit.
What was your favorite scene or situation to write?
C.R.: I enjoyed writing the scene in the hall. Can’t say too much more about it cause I don’t want to give away key points of the story. ;)
Come on lovelies, don't be shy. I bet your pulses are racing and I know you're just as eager as I am to learn how this sexy trio finds love. Don't you worry, Ms. Moss was nice enough to leave us with an excerpt...
“You know you can always tap me.”
“True. But don’t you want to change things up? Experience something, someone different for once?”
“Yeah, that’s why I suggested finding a third for our arrangement. Spice up our routine.”
“I’d be all for it, but considering neither of us has found said person yet, I’m going to take what I can get through this date my cousin set up for me.”
“So am I.” He smiled, his straight, white teeth gleaming and his olive-toned skin shining in the golden glow of the afternoon sun. “Don’t worry. I’m not gonna cramp your style. I have my own person to meet up at the lodge.”
She loved her handsome, bisexual friend, and as long as he was on his own date, that meant he wouldn’t attempt to put the moves on hers. “Well, I guess it’s okay then. Get in the car. You can tell me all about whoever has invited you to the event on the way to pick up Seana.”
“Technically I haven’t met him yet.”
Processing his statement, she climbed into the driver’s seat. “What do you mean you haven’t met him yet?” She pulled out of their apartment complex and headed in the direction of her cousin’s place.
Kiran’s gaze darted everywhere, never landing on her. “Um…. I signed up with 1Night Stand, and tonight’s my date, too.”
Ivy stopped herself from slamming on the brakes. “Where did you get the money to pay for the service? Huh? I know you’re as broke as I am. We’ve lost our jobs. We’re losing our rental. If you had cash stashed somewhere, we could have used it for a new apartment lease. I know you want—”
“You’re rambling.” He placed a hand on her shoulder and squeezed. “I want a partner. You’ve always understood that.” Her roommate released her, shifted in his seat, then played with a frayed string on his jeans. “Most of the guys I’ve met are self-centered assholes who don’t have sense enough to treat their significant other right. I’d like to meet a nice man, for once. When I emailed Madame Evangeline at 1Night Stand and told her I was a friend of yours and Heather’s, she was happy to accommodate me. That’s why she arranged for my night to be the same one as yours and Seana’s.”
“And the money?”
Silence rolled thick from the other seat. Her instincts screamed trouble.
He cleared his throat. “Well….”
She’d seen and heard this nervousness from him before. That time he’d gotten into a little trouble with some bad dudes. Could he have done so again? She shot a quick glance at him. His skin seemed on the pale side. Her sixth sense dinged. “Oh no. You didn’t.”
