So I'm in this fabulous anthology from Xcite - Hungarian Rhapsody. It's part of their superb Secret Library collection, and a huge amount of the fun of being in this one was the amazing people I got to be alongside. In Hungarian Rhapsody there's a novella from the amazing Justine Elyot, but also one from my guest here today - the incredible Kay Jaybee!
So without further ado, here she is!
idea behind my story, A Sticky Situation,
came from a very ordinary occurrence- I dropped my breakfast down my jumper.
Yes, I confess- I have to be amongst the
world's clumsiest people. If there is a door frame I will walk into it, a loose
paving stone I will trip over it, or if a desk edge sticks out slightly, then I
will bruise my thigh on it. It doesn't matter if said item of furniture has
been in the same place for years, somehow I will catch myself on it, as the
never ending array of bruises on my arms and legs will testify!
won't surprise you to know therefore, that there is a fairly good chance that during
any given meal, I will spill some of my dinner over the table or over my clothes,
and the chances of me visiting a restaurant without embarrassing myself in some
way is fairly slim.
Despite all of this cack-handedness
however, I’m a very organised person. Not a quality people often expect from me
after they’ve seen me attempt to walk down the road and fall off the kerb at
least twice. It is however the case (which is just as well, otherwise there is
no way I could balance writing, my job, and my family!).
decided that I would give these trying ‘quirks’ of mine to Sally Briers, the
lead character in my Secret Library
story. Sorry Sally!!!
If there is a paving
stone to trip over, or a drink to knock over, then Sally Briers will trip over
it or spill it. Yet somehow Sally is the successful face of marketing for a
major pharmaceutical company; much to the disbelief of her new boss, Cameron
to work together on a week-long conference in an Oxford hotel, Sally is
dreading spending so much time with arrogant new boy Cameron; whose presence
somehow makes her even clumsier than usual.
on the other hand, just hopes that he’ll be able to stay professional, and keep
his irrational desire to lick up all the accidently split food and drink that
is permanently to be found down Sally’s temptingly curvy body, all to himself.
could be a very long week- unless Cameron can find a way of making Sally slop
so much of her after show champagne, that he has no choice but to march her off
and relieve her of her sodden clothing... He is sure that, if he could find a
way to stop Sally resenting him taking her previous bosses job, then they could
enjoy no end of sticky situations together...
Sticky Situation is my first foray into the realms of
erotic romance. I have written romantic episodes within much (shall we say)
‘harder’ erotic stories and novels, but this time I have left my BDSM toys
locked away in the cupboard under the stairs in favour of a lighter touch.
Fear not however, this novella is still
packed with KJB style kink, for as Sally and Cameron begin their enforced
period of work together at a conference; their road from mutual dislike to
mutual lust is far from straightforward! There is more than a dollop of
misunderstanding, some inconvenient fantasies, mysterious anonymous notes, a
slug of ice-cold store-cupboard action, a splatter of dinner, a dousing of wine,
and a sip or two of champagne before they can even contemplate a happy ending...Delicious...
The Secret Library is a new
range from Xcite Books which will appeal to the female romance reader market.
Each book contains three specially commissioned novellas guaranteeing a
satisfying and varied selection.
The story content is relationship led with a strong alpha
male hero, a level of conflict and a climactic, explicit ending.
The covers are deliberately designed without visual imagery
to be discreet. These books could be comfortably read in public, given as gifts
and left on a bedside table.
The Secret Library contains six books with three erotic
romance novellas in each:
