A SEXY DELIGHT
Here’s seven from BENEATH THE STARRY SKY, a contemporary erotic romance that is part of the 1Night Stand line.
Set-up: In this contemporary erotic 1Night Stand romance, Josh (a former tv star) is trying to stop Tamara from feeling sorry for herself, because he can relate to how she feels.
She heard no revulsion in his voice and glanced over at him. “You still want to have a one-night stand with me after seeing me like this?” Is this guy blind?
“Sure. It’s not very often I find someone who I can relate to. What’s your name? Madame Eve never told me.”
She tensed. “Tamara. But you know nothing about me or what I’m going through.” She stood up. If he wasn’t going to leave, she would.
As she walked past, he grabbed her arm. “I can relate, and I’ll show you if you just give me a chance.”
Too weak to fight from all of her crying, she didn’t resist. “Fine, show me.”
He released her then unbuttoned his shirt and took it off. Turning around, he said, “Look at my back. See all of the scarring there? Well, it extends up past my hairline. I went with hair restoration surgery instead of a wig, but I still know what the sting of rejection feels like.”
Her eyes widened. Insert foot in mouth. “I’m sorry.” She’d acted like a bitch, and the last thing he needed was more rejection, more people feeling sorry for him. If anything, they both needed someone who could simply understand. “It’s just that so many people sympathize with how I feel, but they truly have no idea what it’s like to have alopecia, to have hair one day and none the next.”
~ About Beneath the Starry Sky ~
Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.
Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.
