About the author:
Lisa is an artist/writer living in her dream house nestled among the lakes in New England. She loves getting lost in a steamy book, finding the perfect pair of sexy shoes, and hearing the laughter of her men. Being an estrogen island in a sea of testosterone makes her queen. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, the power of a man in a tuxedo, and happy endings.

a bit behind schedule this morning, so if you’d like to
get us started, I think we’re ready for you.”
“Won’t be needin’ the men’s room, Maddie,
darlin’. Can be naked in a blink of your lovely baby
blues.” Jagger smiled at Madeline, dropped a beaten
canvas book bag near the model stage and kicked off

“Yummy. Don’t you just love his accent?” Leah
whispered. “And what a cool name.”
“Charming,” Zee muttered, trying to shut out the
Australian lilt. She resharpened and organized her
already sharpened, organized pencils. Next to her, she
heard Leah gasp and exclaim under her breath,
Zee looked back at the model’s dais. Oh… my…
Mr. Jagger Jones may or may not be arrogant, but he
was a beautiful example of the male form. His tall
frame made his physique long and lean, yet his muscles
were chiseled and well defined. She only had a view of
his backside but it was one of the finest backsides Zee
had ever seen.
And then Jagger Jones turned around.
