Anybody ever had a One Night Stand? Few things are as exciting as an unexpected night of passion. One moment you’re having drinks at the bar, the next you’re making out in a cab and then before you know exactly how it happened you’re pulling each other’s clothes off and having loud, passionate sex.
At least, that’s what happened to Lisa and John in my novella One Night Stand. It was going to be a hot little short story like a few thousand others out there going from first meeting to orgasmic conclusion in a few thousand words—but, nobody really wants a book that’s just like a few thousand others. So I started thinking about how to shake up the plot and really spice up the action.
So Lisa got what could kindly be called a relationship phobia which leads her to go to extraordinary lengths to put obstacles in the path of her new relationship with John. She doesn’t want to just let him go—she wants to keep them from becoming too serious about each other. So she drags him into the world of swinging. It’s a Tricky Business engaging in a series of sexy encounters with strangers that set Lisa’s hormones on fire. But while all of the sex helps her to keep her relationship-centered fears far away, the strangers aren’t satisfying the needs of her heart.
John isn’t happy about it either. All he wants is Lisa and the games are driving him crazy in the wrong sort of way. So in the third volume of the series, he takes advantage of being Snowed In, to see if he can force the issue and turn his and Lisa’s initial one night stand into something a lot more meaningful and long lasting.
It’s a fun journey with a lot of twists and turns. I hope you’ll hop aboard for the ride.
One Night Stand
Blurb for Snowed In:
Lisa has a problem. She's dating a fabulous guy who will do just about anything she asks him to, but she can't quite convince herself this means he's really in love with her. She's had guys say all the right things before and then let her down the moment she opens up and trusts them, and in her heart of hearts she's afraid John is just like the others.
John has a problem. He's dating a woman he's crazy about but she won't settle down and marry him and he can't figure out why. She won't even commit to a monogamous relationship and the swinging she insists upon to keep them from getting too close is leaching all the hope and joy out of his heart.
It's a relationship forged in heaven and going straight to hell, but when a chance snowstorm traps them at Lisa's house, John sees his chance to convince his lover that don't need anyone but each other to make them happy.
