Week 17 of this phenomenal blogging group. It gets bigger and better each week. We’ve got a great bunch of authors this week: 37 Sexy Snippets!! Be sure to check out the fab authors and their sexy snippets HERE.
In my Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin, “Naked Sushi,” Pepper’s FBI hottie has sex with her in the copy room. Only she thinks he’s a new game designer in the company. She’s working late and hanging with this guy is a girl’s dream. Especially when all that’s waiting for her at home is Chinese take-out and an old movie on TV.
Pepper goes crazy, crying out, thrashing about and slamming her hands down on the platen glass of the copy machine. Throwing her sweaty palms all over the machine. Wild, pawing, and scratching like a wolf in heat. Here’s what happens next:
Oh, my God, it was good.
It didn’t last.
In a wild moment, I pushed the Copy button by mistake. A powerful white light flooded into my face as the light bar moved back and forth, blinding me.
I hit another button and a blaring alarm went off .
I was a goner.

This week I have something different for you: A Vine video
I’ve found a way to make this sexy snippet from my Cosmo Red-Hot Read, “Naked Sushi” go on and on. Six seconds can last forever…on Vine. I posted a snippet from Chapter One where my heroine, Pepper O’Malley, is undercover as a naked sushi model spying on her ex-boss when she sees the sexy thief (she doesn’t know he’s an FBI agent) who got her fired cozying up to him. The short video loops over and over so you can take your time reading the snippet.
Since it’s only six sentences, here’s the sentence that precedes it from Naked Sushi:
I allowed my overripe female hormones to be seduced by this man with a slow, irresistible smile.

Vine is my new toy.
No, not that kind of toy.
My social media darling.
Whoever thought six seconds could be so much fun? Of course, it takes me a lot longer than six seconds to put together a Vine video, but that’s half the fun, isn’t it?
I call it “Vine foreplay.”
Here’s my latest Vine post featuring NAKED SUSHI:

A Delicious Mistake
One day I’m getting canned from my job as a computer programmer for having wild copy-room sex with a guy I thought was the new game designer. The next, I’m crashing my ex-boss’s business lunch in a creative attempt to get my job back and men are eating sushi off my naked body!
That’s when I realize a) My ex-boss is a hiding corporate secrets b) Hot copy-room guy is an undercover FBI agent c) I would make a kick-ass spy!
Then Special Agent Hottie brings out his cuffs, and things get really interesting…

Check back on My Sexy Saturday for a VIDEO sexy snippet of NAKED SUSHI!
Right now, I’m breathless just looking at my cover for NAKED SUSHI.
What do you think?
It’s My Sexy Saturday!
In my erotic short story, Breaking the Rules, Elaine is sipping a latte in a coffeehouse and filling out a job ap on her laptop when a mysterious, sexy hottie pulls out the cord by accident…or was it an accident?
Elaine soon finds out you have to break the rules to get what you want…at work or in bed.
Guilt settled in the pit of her stomach like cold pepperoni pizza. She wasn’t surprised at her abruptness. Truth was, she was looking for excuses to feel sorry for herself. Elaine had been on the receiving end of bad luck recently, beginning with not getting the promotion due her. Okay, so she didn’t ask for a promotion like the guy they hired after her. She thought her work should speak for itself.
It doesn’t work that way, honey, Sally, her co-worker, chided her. You gotta ask for what you want.
Her, ask? You must be kidding. That wasn’t Elaine. She never felt comfortable asking for anything. Whether it was a discount at the car wash on Ladies’ Day or double plastic bags at the Chinese take-out so the moo shu pork wouldn’t spill all over her car. And she rather die than ask for anything in bed. She’d lie there, hoping, praying her ex-boyfriend wouldn’t stop pumping her. She’d never dare ask him to keep going or play with her to get her off. So she rarely came during sex and she languished in the files department at work, while the new guy got a higher pay grade. And an office with a view.
Then her ex-boyfriend decided he liked the way a certain blonde looked bent over and her world fell apart. That wasn’t what was bugging her now. Like it or not, this jock gave her an itch up her backside. Stay away from him. He’s trouble. Elaine kept typing on her keyboard, but she had the uncomfortable feeling he wasn’t going anywhere.
What is it with him? He’s still looking at my chest. Lighten up, girl.
Provoked by his lingering gaze, she looked down and smiled. So that’s what had caught his attention. Her top two buttons were undone, revealing what cleavage she had. What was he thinking? How her breasts would feel cupped in his palms? Full. Inviting. Then kissing them. Her nipples hardened. His lips would be hot, very hot.
Thinking about him licking her breasts raised her sweat-o-meter to a new high. Perspiration dribbled down her cleavage like dancing raindrops on parade. Okay, admit it. You’re attracted to this guy in spite of yourself.
Will Elaine let herself go?
I love these Sexy Saturday blog hops — an op to discover new authors and their stories. I’ll be excerpting snippets from NAKED SUSHI in coming weeks, my October 2013 Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin. You’ll meet Pepper O’Malley, a working girl who writes code but wants to be a spy…
Is your romance novel heroine qualified for the job?
Did you interview her before you started writing? I don’t mean where she went to school, what her favorite color is, etc. but whether or not she’s qualified for the job as a romance novel heroine.
For example, does she have the skills needed to perform her job: Can she shoot a Glock if you’re writing an FBI agent? Lace up a corset if she’s interviewing for the job as a Victorian lady’s maid?
Or she may be overqualified for the job. For example, she can type faster than you or she has aspirations to leave the romance novel field and get a literary gig.
How long has she been out of work?
Romance novel jobs are hard to get and if it’s been decades since she slipped between the pages of a novel, you might want to reconsider. On the other hand, experience between the sheets is important for every romance heroine.
A typical interview could go like this:
Miss Jones, I’m writing a novel that takes place during the Regency Period. Are you a fan of Jane Austen?
Miss Jones: Jane who? I’m so into Lady Gaga. Love her sunglasses.
Miss Smith, my upcoming novella, NAKED SUSHI, novel is about a computer whiz kid
who wants to become an FBI agent. She must be physically active to catch the bad guys. Can you drop and do twenty?
Miss Smith: the only thing I dropped was twenty pounds to get this interview.
Let’s try again. Next up is Ms. von Rittenhaus.
Ms. von Rittenhaus, I need a romance novel heroine who sleeps all day and bites all night. Can you list your qualifications to be the vamp queen in my new urban fantasy novel?
Ms. von Rittenhaus: Honey, I can snooze and cruise with the best of them. I’ve hit every vamp bar from here to Tampa and let me tell you, no one gets her fangs on better than Lulu.
Super. When can you start?
Ms. von Rittenhaus: Tonight. As soon as the sun goes down. (Pause). You haven’t mentioned a benefits package.
What do you mean?
Ms. von Rittenhaus: Do I get overtime pay for night work? And how about a 401K? I’m not getting any younger and in this economy a girl, I mean vamp, has to look out for herself. What about my e-rights? And health benefits? What if I chip a fang and I have to see a dentist between chapters?
Jeez…Romance heroines…you can’t write with them and you can’t write without them.
Next time when we’ll interview the romance novel hero and see if he’s up for the job.

His to command.
Do I feel a little 50 Shades of Grey coming on?
You know the signs: he watches you lean over to pick up a document he “accidently” dropped. Especially if you’re wearing high heels and a skirt.
Or he has a “little favor” for you to do for him. Which involves staying late to work on his pet project. Just the two of you. Then he brings out the wine to relax you. Or better yet, he invites you to join his team on an out-of-town business trip and your hotel room just happens to be next to his.
You’re not alone. According to a study conducted by the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), 54 percent of the women who responded said they had experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace.
No wonder it’s difficult for women to gain power in the workplace, even though single women are in the majority. According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, single women make up 54 percent of female employees in the workforce.
It’s even more difficult if you’re a woman in a field predominated by men. I explore how a woman fares in the world of computer programming in NAKED SUSHI, my Cosmo Red Hot Read from Harlequin (October 2013). Amateur spy PEPPER O’MALLEY gets more than she bargained for when she discovers her sleazy boss is hiding corporate secrets.
She gets fired.
Was it her fault she got caught in the copy room with her pants down with a hunky thief?
The only way Pepper can get her job back is to become a naked sushi model and spy on her ex-boss.
She’s thrown into a world of corporate espionage she never imagined…
But what happens when you work hard at you job everyday and never get anywhere? Experts often say that women’s brains are wired differently than men’s and we don’t ask for what we want. I decided to take that idea and explore it in my erotic short story. In Breaking the Rules, Elaine meets a handsome stranger who promises her a one-night stand she won’t forget:
The sensations were almost more than she could bear, her body swaying back and forth, reeling with the sublime pleasure this man gave her.
“Oh, it feels good, so good,” she moaned.
“Do you want me to keep going, Elaine?” asked the Hunter, slowing down. The burning flame inside her started to ebb…flicker. “I can stop, if you’re uncomfortable.”
She froze. No, he couldn’t do that to her. He couldn’t! Not when she was experiencing such delicious sensations.
“I—I…” she sputtered. Nothing more came out.
Say it, girl! Tell him you want him to keep going.
But she couldn’t. For all her bravado, Elaine couldn’t ask for what she wanted.
She sighed. It was always the same. With Hank and at work. She burned with desires and ideas, but she couldn’t get them out because it was against the damn rules.
Will Elaine “Get Lucky” and learn how to ask for what she wants?
Both at work…and in bed?
Find out in my erotic short story, Breaking the Rules – it’s FREE from April 12-16, 2013.
So how do you cope in the workplace?
One solution: start our own business. Women-owned businesses have increased 59 percent since 1997 according to an estimate by American Express and reported in the Los Angeles Times.
Then you can do the flirting with the handsome new male assistant you hired.
Mmm…just imagine shirtless Fridays.
Sounds good to me.
