What inspired you to write your book?
This book is inspired by working on a special project. I was the only woman in the middle of ten men. I often wondered how much fun the experience would have been if there was a good looking man in the room.
Here is a short sample from the book:
That’s when he did it. His left hand unbuttoned his right sleeve, and he carefully folded the cuff to his inner elbow. He then folded the bottom until it reached the top of his cuff, revealing the cords rippling through his muscular, tanned forearms.
My heart raced, and as much as I tried, I couldn’t look away. The small, effortless move was so sexy. A short exhalation left my chest as I stared.
Yeah. We’ll be getting a lot of work done.
Still standing, he smoothed the edges of the folds. He smirked in an annoyingly self-confident way that dampened my panties. Then he repeated the action on his right arm. This time, he met my gaze and took his time rolling the sleeve, flexing the muscles in his forearms when he did it.
He knew he was turning me on. And he enjoyed it!
I imagined that I appeared wide-eyed and breathless while I squirmed in my seat.
My god. Could this be more embarrassing?
